ladies had practically the same number
of votes. Who knows but what this
county will be the honored one and
our candidate bring back the distinction
of being Queen of 1922 Palmafesta?
All of the young ladies will assemble
in Columbia on Monday, April
the 17th when Palmafesta starts and
will be the guests of Palmafesta until
Saturday the 22nd ot" April when
I 1922 Palmafesta will close. All ex|
penses will be paid by Palmafesta and
j all the young lady must do to win the
distinction of being Palmafesta Queen
is to be elected in her own county and
go to Columbia and compete with the
other yourg ladies assembled. Tha
candidates do nothing in Columbia to
win the ruling place but appear before
the voters and be introduced.
The beauty supplement thJs year
will be widely circulated over the
State and the County Queens will not
only have their pictures in this beautiful
page but their pictures will be
put in the Palmafesta program to be
preserved in permanent form.
All of the young ladies will be personally
conducted about the big show
of automobiles and trades displays
where the man industries and products
of the State will be demonstrated
to the public. ,
The $500 prize for the best County
float is bringing many registrations.
Hambone says, "Last year you
couldn't buy niithin for a dollah. and
this year you cain't get a dollah to
buy nuthing with," but here is a way
to get $500 in gold. This county can
easily design a good float to show the
natural resources, the industries or
some historical event and have as
good a chance to win the prize as
anyone. Just write to Mr. James G.
Holmes, 1215 Lady Street. Columbia
and tell him you want to enter a float.
The parade will be on Thursday, April
the 20th and will be a mamouth affair.
