LOUISE GARRETT IS CROWNED MOUNDS HOMECOMING QUEEN
Approximately two hundred persons witnessed the crowning of Louise Garrett, Mounds Township High School senior, at the annual Homecoming Dance last night.
Balloting closed just thirty minutes before the coronation ceremonies, with Miss Garrett winning from a field of four. Other candidates were Virginia Thornton,
Glenda Sitton, Joyce Nicholaides. Attendants were Flora Bridges, Mary Taylor, Shirley Grable, and Lorraine Gamber.
The queen, arrayed in a pink formal and carrying a bouquet of mums, was preceded to the stage by Larry Bill Britton, who carried the crown. Bill Tally, captain of the football
team, which in the afternoon defeated an alumni team 18-8, placed the crown upon Miss Garrett's head as she knelt. She read the
oath after which she paid tribute to former students in service. After the tribute, the assemblage stood in silence while Jack
Stalcup's orchestra played the national anthem. Proceeds from the dance will be used for the next junior-senior prom in May.
