No Race Horse Could Ever
Become Miss America, Says
Columist After Interviews
Bv HAL BOYLE
NEW YORK (Pi It Is much
easier today to win the Kentucky
Derby than it U to become Mii
All a horse has to do to cinch
the derby is to run fastest. And
It can use all four legs.
But It doesn't have to prove it
can ride a human being, sing a
folk song, paint a picture, look
well In bathing ault and evening
gown, do a tap dance or give
Lincoln's Gettysburg address.
The average racehorse Isn't
even sure Lincoln ever had an
address in Gettysburg.
But to win the Atlantic City
beauty contest now a girl not only
has to show derby form she has
to demonstrate personality, tal
ent and intelligence. And she
goes through a more rigorous
training routine than the average
derby entrant. She may even
have to eat oats (oatmeal) to
slim her figure.
Many of the lassies competing
this week for the nation's $3,000
beauty crown at the Jersey re
sort spent a week or two in Man
hattan getting a final curry
combing. They hire specialists to
teach them how to walk grace
fully and use makeup artfully.

NEW SEASON Th. opening
school day, Sept. 6, found th!i
type of activity at Roseburg't
senior high school. In th top
picture, Photographer Paul
Jenkins recorded a pre-clau in
formal session in th classroom
over which Mrt. Cloyd Riff
pratidet. Although th opening
day was also th first full day
of school, neither teachers nor
students were really able to get
back into th swing of things.
Th question "Whtt did you do
all summer?" wn asked mors
frequently than th customary
inquiries students will hear
whan th excitement of th first
day is over. Th second picture
shows Principal George Erick
ton handling th registration
procsdurei for thoi youngsters
who war not on handiest week
to sign for .classes. With well
over 600 students enrolled dur
ing th regular registration pe
riod, most of the signing up
process was completed. How
ever, Erickson, at do other
school principals, expects the
year's total to exceed the school
population record set last year.
Th pra-school enrollment guess
was 675. One can almost "see"
th noise in th lowar photo as
students throng th school halls
prior to th assembly which ush
ered in th current year at
senior high. Laden with books
and clothed in new school garb
and a summer tan, these young
