— that’s the opportunity offered to all single girls in this area
in a current contest for America’s "Queen of Liberty."
Finalists from various parts of the country will be flown to
Hollywood, view the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl football classic
on January 2, and enjoy a week's whirl in the film capital,
visiting movie studios and glamorous night spots.
They will compete for the "Queen of Liberty" crown on Jack
Bailey’s "Queen For A Day” show of December 29, broadcast
nationally over the Mutual radio network.
The winner will ride a lavish float in the nationally telecast
Rose Parade, accompanied by the “ Airman of the Year." selected
