Hazelhoff announce the^ marr riage of their daughter, Mary Ann, to Gary Larson, son of Mi and ' Mrs Clyde Larson, i all , THE BEAUTY CONTEST IS over for this year and Miss Iowa has been chosen, but for aft Algona mother and daughter, the event is one' that will never be forgotten. They are Karen Navoichick, who was. Miss Kossuth' County in the pageant at Clear Lake, and her "mother, Mrs. •'William Navoichick who went along as chaperone. Both say the week was one of the most worthwhile and memorable experiences of their lives. • ; * * * • THE MISS IOWA CONTEST. AS you probably know, is sponsored by the .Jaycees. The local contest was sponsored in Algona by 'them for the first time in many years. The organization once had in Algona one of the most active chapters' in the state but it died out ahd they are going good again after reorganizing 1 only about a year ago. y/hen Karen he'artl'the number of the contestants in the local contest had dwindled td only five, she got on the phone and tried to talk m.ore of our lovely girls into entering., She said this Wfcek that .if she had known then, what she knows now about the pageant ,she would have talked even harder! > . • •• •, •. ' * * *" • • MRS. NAVOICHICK SAID THAT no parent need have any misgivings about letting a daughter enter the contest. Only the highest type girl gets in the Miss Iowa contest and the standards at Atlantic City are even higher. The Clear Lake Jaycees do. a .wonderful job of planning the; event and the contestants are under the strictest supervision from the time they get there Thursday morning until they leave late Sunday. KAREN, QUITE INNOCENTLY, had a chance to find out what would happen if a contestant had decided to take Dutch leave for a while. She became a little ill during the outdoor church service so her mother .sent her to the car. Somehow she wasn't properly signed in at the next engagement. The alert was on—one of the girls—Miss Kossuth County — was missing! Al!l points were checked including the home where the NaVpichicks were staying. The potential scandal lived onily about ten minutes, until,Karen was found where she was supposed to be all'the time, sitting beside her mother at the luncheon. WHEN THE CONTESTANTS FIRST arrive they sign a pledge that they will smoke no cigarettes nor drink any intoxicating liquor. Rumor has it that in the past, a, contestant was suspected for her frequent trips ,to the rest room. She was caught with a smoke in her hand and was immediately disqualified. * .* * PERHAPS THE HARDEST RESTRICTION for the contestants, Who are all very obviously of the female persuasion, is rthe "no talking 1 ' rule. From the time they arrive, to the time the contest is over, ;he giills can (talk only to the Clear Lake Jaycees who are their losts, their families in the home's where they stay, the chaperones, the other contestants and the judges; Incidentally, the judges' are performing their work all of the time and the girls are being sized up even when they ask to please ,pass the salt at dinner! They, of course, can talk to the TV and newspaper petople with special permission but fathers, brothers, and sweethearts of the contestants have to be .snubbed until Sunday night. They can make no phone calls, either. ••>•.•. • . ,, * *•• • *.. • • •'. '••., : ••• ••-. KAREN WAS THE; TALLEST BEAUTY in the contest.

Mr and Mrs Larson were honored at a reception at the home of the groom's, parents Sunday with ihf immediate relatives lii attendance. Mr'and Mrs Dick Waterbury, Cherokee, are visiting with her parents, the Jens Madsens and his parents, the C. O. Water- burys at Swea City and with other friends and relatives in the area. The sense of smell is related closely to the characteristic appearance of the object. when'ishe was in the'rapid-growing'years, and she agVeed that it hnd been. "But, she said, "my mother, my dancing teacher, and my teachers at school, nagged me so well about it that I : didn't""dare. Dancing lessons, starting at age 6, championship baton twirling and marching band at Kenosha, Wise, where she went to high school, and Jong hours at the' piano helped contribute both to her talent and her poise. * * * ALTHOUGH THE AGE LIMIT FOR THE CONTESTANTS was from 18 to 28, most of the girls were 18 or 19 and just out of high school. Karen was the only gray-haired ginl in the contest! A fresh, unsophisticated 19, Karen had her hair done especially for the event. "Silver-grey, bouffant-style" was the way her hairdresser described her looks, which are naturally blonde. She worried on the way to Clear Lake lest her coiffure would be considered a littlle to outstand- ish. But she says she needn't have. The "Cameo", "Jackie", "Beehive" and other latest hair-styles made her look almost conservative! The judges, TV 'announcers, emcees, all referred to her as "Miss Kossuth County". Somehow, they all had trouble with the name Navoichick. . * * * THE CHAPERONES, ACCORDING TO Mrs. Navoichick, really have a'll the best of it. They were mostly mothers of the gilts, although one contestant had a chaperone >a year younger than she was and with looks to rival most of the contestants. No dishwashing, the best of food with no cooking, doors opened for you with courtesy, no pressing or ironing, and meeting so many interesting people, made it a wonderful experience for Mrs. Navoichick. * » * * WITH A TOUCH OF CYNICISM, I asked if the choosing of Miss Iowa could possibly be a put-up job. The Navolchicks were nTost emphatic In saying Ithat they dldnH sec how It could be. A point system/is Used and the judges didn't vote all along the line. The coft- testant who picks up two or three points consistantly in each category is much better off than the one who gets, say ten in the talent and only one or so for the other things. The votes are turned over Jo a certified public accountant and it is very possible ,that no judge knows who Miss Iowa is until the tabulation is made.and the wto' ner is announced. • * * * MRS. NAVOICHICK, this week is back home and involved again in wll the household duties with a husband and three teen 1 - BRers. Karen is teaching once more in the dance studio she operates on her own. This fall she'll again commute to Emmetsburg to pick up some college credit* to add to those accumlated by a year Bit Drake. Eventually she hopes to got her degree. She doesn't plan to be a Miss Iowa candidate next year but she says, "I'm going to do everything in my power to see to it that we have a really bang-up local contest." * - *! » ONE THING, I KNOW FOR sure is that an awful lot of Ideal people ate peach cobbler over the weekend. At least, I hope they were able to eat it. I goofed again with last week's recipe and an extra 1 cup flour appeared in the column. First indication of the mistake came wheii a group of local working girls discussed it ait a coffee break. They contacted son, Bill and he phoned, "Hey, Mom how much flour?" Since that time, I've had exactly 14 phone calls on the same subject! I am sorry about the error, but not very. It gave me a chance to talk to so many readers. . * * * • . • ... • WE'LL TRY AGAIN WITH this recipe for Jellied Meat Loaf.
