Watch Closely, Judges
Beauty Rules Today
They should be blind, married,
and exceedingly fond of their
wives—those connoisseurs of fe
male charms who’ll select a Jun
ior Weekend queen today from
the nine remaining aspirants.
Then they wouldn’t be besieged
with illusions and could make the
only intelligent decision—all nine
for Junior Weekend queen.
Quite a regal assemblage of
feminine pulchritude — Barbara
Neu, Barbara Todd, Jean Burt,
Eleanor Sederstrom, Annabelle
Dow, Dorothy Wheeler, Wini
Green, Isolde Eichenlaub, and
Helen Angell. And if anyone is
doggedly certain HE can choose
THE ONE, he’s an abominable
Every one of the nine coyly
admitted mild surprise at being
chosen from the original bevy of
21, and all were thrilled, despite
subdued attempts at suppression,
as they lounged about the Uni
versity news bureau last Monday
night waiting to be photo
Annabelle Dow’s fathomless
velvet eyes twinkled for an in
stant before she murmured, “I
still can't believe I got this far.”
Jean Burt, wisps of golden hair
fluffed out in an alluring disar
ray, looked like a dream, and
“felt” like she was “in a dream.”
In between being coaxed by
Promotion Chairman Buck Buch
wach to be less Victorian in dis
playing her shapely, silk-sheathed
calves for the camera, Barbara
Neu managed to chime in with, “I
still can't believe this is happen
ing to me!”
Helen Angell, titian locks shim
mering under the flood lamp,
turned on a disarming smile
which left no doubt that she real
ly was, as she put it, “very hap
py.” Wini Green, waxing regal
in a snug-fitting blouse: "This is
one of those things that only
happens once.”
Vivacious Isolde Eichenlaub
drifted about good enough for
any Tristran, and "thrilled about
the whole thing.” Dorothy Wheel
er, dazzlingly exotic acquired a
demure demeanor for an instant,
then effervesced with, "Golly, I
can’t explain exactly how I feel!”
Barbara Todd hovered between
the ultimate in glamour and un
bridled gaiety. and "couldn't, for
the life of me” really express
how she felt about being one of
the nine. Eleanor Sederstrom,
beaming like Miss Happiness her
self, was "awfully glad” she “got
to be one of the nine finalists.”
Now comes the ticklish job,
choosing one of the nine to be
1941's Junior Weekend queen
and also choosing her court.

Templeton Reputed
Puckish Prankster
A puckish sense of humor,
combined with an infallible sense
of “the time and place’’ have
gained Alec Templeton a widely
recognized reputation as a prac
tical joker—as well as a brilliant
Templeton, who will appear in
McArthur court next Tuesday
evening, finds many social situa
tions which, have to be dealt with
firmly. For instance there is the
classic story’ of the Chicago ma
tron who invited the blind aitist
to tea—and then insisted, quite
violently, that he play a. few num
bers for the assembled guests.
After demurring a few times,
Templeton assented — but with
mental reservations.
Came the great momett tho
room was silent—all waited witti
indrawn breaths for the music to
commence. What they didn't wait
for or expect was the seiies of
discordant notes which issued
from the piano. Evidently thu
instrument hadn't been tuned for
years. 0
Very gently and politely, Tem
pleton rose—remarked he .ould
not perform on such an ir.stru?
ment—and left the room.
The matron, later: "I can't un
derstand it—I had the piano
tuned expressly for the occasion."
Templeton, later: “I just hit
the wrong notes at the right
time. I hope her face is red."
