Mayor Pro tem Mancuso, "that the City Council of the
City of Houston convey to President Chiang Ching-Kuo
its sincere congratulations upon his election as the

New York, New York -- May 15, 1978 -- With a
free ticket to New York, a room at the world-famous
Barbizon Hotel and a position editing the August

of San Antonio will begin today to live a college
student's dream. Miami, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Texas Wong, arrived in New York on Saturday to be-

Guest Editor. From the moment she checked into the
hotel Miami's schedule has been chock-full of as-
signments and social activities.
Chosen from over a thousand entrants from across
the United States and Canada, this University of
Texas at Austin student is one of the fourteen col-
