Are In Race
Mildred Richcson Manklns was
elected All-University Queen in chapel
Thursday morning by the entire stu-
dent body winning over her opponent
Irene McCreary Santa Anna by a
margin of 10 votes.
The race in which there were eight
candidates was one "of the closest
that has ever been run in the history
of the Institution. In the primary
election held at the chapel period
481 votes were cast three of which
were disqualified. The two candidates
in the run-off Mildred Richcson and
Irene McCreary polled 128 and 106
Mrs. Odell Winters Rising Star
was the third in the first race with
a total of 59 votes. Mary Balch Abi-
lene; and Beth Hamm Mcrkcl; were
next polling 49 and 43 ballots respec-
tively. Thirty-five votes were cast for
Margaret Daniel Abilene; 30 for El-
vergyn McFarland Snyder; and 28
for Paulino Shiller Rowena.
There were only 10 votes different
in the final count o.f the deciding elec-
tion. Out of a total ballot of 488 the
winner received 253 to 237 for tho
This is one of the closest political
races ever staged on the campus ac-
cording to Moxley Featherston presi-
dent of tho student body.
Both the candidates in the last race
are out-of-town students and have
been prominent in university activi
ties. Last year Irene McCreary was
selected favorite for the junior class.
Mildred Richcson was chosen sum
mer queen in the summer session of
10J2. Both have been candidates in
nlmost every race for class favorites
The honornry position of Univer-
sity Queen is the highest honor that
can be bestowed upon any young lady
of this university.
To be a candidate for this position
the aspirant must be a senior and
must have attended this school for at
least ono year preceding their elec-
tion. They are elected by the vote
of the entire student body.
Last year Mildred Corley Eagle
Lake was chosen All-University
Queen and was crowned Queen of tho
university in an elaborate ceremony
shortly before the Christmas holidays.
It is probable that such a coronation
will take place this year according
to Moxloy Featherston student presi-
dent; and Ivan Flynn editor of tho
