Annual 'Miss Washington'
Hunt Starts Here Monday
The annual search for "Miss
Washington," who will be the offi
cial entry in the Atlantic City
Beauty Contest and possibly "Miss
America of 1947," will start Monday,
Station WWDC has announced.
Ben Strouse, station manager,
said the girl selected will be known
as "Miss Greater Washington" be
cause girls from outside the District
will be eligible to enter the Wash
ington contest and no others. The
following areas are included: Mont
gomery and Prince Georges coun
ties, Md.; Arlington and Fairfax
counties, ¥·., and Alexandria, Va.
This step forestalls possibility of
two girls from the same city repre
senting two different areas. Last
year two contestants from Alex
andria represented the District and
Virginia at the Atlantic City finals.
A $25,000 scholarship foundation
bu been set up by the Atlantic City
pageant, which will be distributed
among 16 of the contestants in the
national finals. Application blanks
and full details may be obtained
from Station WWDC. Rehearsals
for the preliminary contests begin
June 2. Preliminary judging will
be held in July.
