The June 10, 1958 edition of the Chicago Daily Tribune ran an article about predictions for Chicagoland and the world. The predictions were sealed in a time capsule and supposed to be opened in the year 2000. Below is an excerpt from the article as well as a copy of the piece in its entirety.

The predictions included the conquering of space, advanced atomic energy and electronic progress, a higher standard of living, shorter working hours, and longer vacations (with four weeks as the average). The chicken in every pot and a car in every garage forecast has been changed to a helicopter and heliport in every back yard.
