NOV. 5 GENERAL ELECTION DAY +*********++**+***++*+++*+++++*+*+++*+*++++*+** Poise, ability earn f 1st runner-up title "Every girl should be in the pageant. I learned so much," Cindy Ellgren, Humboldt, first runner-up in the recent Miss Iowa pageant said. Miss Ellgren received her honor in the final judging last Saturday evening, Dec. 29, in Cedar Rapids. Her closest friend at the pageant rehearsals and proceedings, Susan Thompson, Marion, was chosen Miss Iowa. Miss Ellgren was asked to participate in the pageant by LaRee Foster, who is on the Miss Iowa Pageant Board. Initially she had doubts about agreeing to enter, but her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Ellgren, convinced her of valuable experiences to be gained. Each girl was accompanied by her chaperone and pageant rules clearly state that chaperones are not to be mothers, for obvious reasons. Luverne Bjorklund, Miss Ellgren's aunt, lived with Cindy and her roommate for the four days of rehearsals and nerve-wracking performances. The 26 entrants were taught choreography and songs of two stage productions and performed before a live audience both Friday and Saturday evenings, Dec. 28 and 29. Each girl had a private interview with the four judges, who varied in profession, gender and age ranging from a ballet instructor from the East Coast to a junior in high school. During her interview, Cindy was first asked who she was and where she was going. Later, in the preliminary judging, Cindy was asked before a live audience, "What is the greatest present you have ever received?" Cindy calmly replied, "Salvation. Jesus Christ gave me the hope and peace of eternal life." 1st runner up Cynthia Ellgren, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ken Ellgren, Humboldt, received first runner-up in the Miss Iowa Pageant held in Cedar Rapids Dec. 26-29. Miss Ellgren is a sophomore at Iowa State University [ISU], Ames.-Independent Photo. Miss Ellgren felt poise and personality weighed more on the judges minds than most people think. The girls attended seyeral sessions on modeling and make-up. Make-up was donated for the pageant participants by a cosmetic firm. Miss Ellgren said the pageant or similar experience would be good for most girls. The girls attempted to learn to act properly under pressure, and to respond well to impromptu questioning. Cindy summed up her courage in competition, "It's one of the things that God let me do. I wasn't too worried how it would turn out because He already knew what was going to happen." Sponsors for Miss Ellgren were Farm Service, Humboldt, and Farmers Coop Fie vat or, Kadclil'fe.—By bee.
