The brown-haired IU student is majoring in English and drama and is considering a career in radio or television. She is a sophomore at IU, but has ceased her studies until after the excit- ment of reigning over the "500" has ended. "IT ALL BEGAN for Miss Jones on April 24 when she joined 32 Hoosier girls, one representing each of the "500" mile race cars. Each girl was nominated by a Festival director and were judged by a panel.of thre'e men and two women. At a formal banquet held later, Miss Jones was' selected queen by another group of judges. Like most reigning monarchs, Miss Jones : also has a court of princesses, who will help her with her many activities. They include Suzy Abbott, Indianapolis; Carmen Bagwell, Greentown; Jonni Jann, Hartford City and Charlone Sarka, South Bend. Jerilyn the first queen to bear the title from outside of Indianapolis. MISS JONES, like the other 32 entrants .in the contest, has a sponsor. Her sponsor is Mrs. Frank MeKinncy, Indianapolis, president of the "500 Mile Festival." Mrs. McKinney is the first woman president of the Festival. Jerilyn graduated from' Flora high school in 1960 and entered Indiana University in September of that yeaV. Her keen interest in speech and theater had its'be- ginning in high school. She won speech awards galore in her junior and senior years. Her speaking ability has been a tremendous asset to; her in her role as' Queen of the "500" Festival. From speeches at various social functions to conversing with Speedway officials and drivers demands the utmost in conversational ability. AT'INDIANA University, Jerilyn is a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Her activities on campus -keep her quite busy, and yet she manages a grade average'of 3.2 out of a'possible four. Last year, Jerilyn was elected Grand Charity of the Indiana Order of Rainbow for Girls. She has always been quite active in that organization. She is also a. member of the Psi Iota Xi sorority in Flora and of the Order of Eastern Star in Flora. Speedway officials always provide accommodations in Indiana- is for the "500" Queen, but this year Queen. Jerilyn elected '.o stay with Governor and Mrs. Mathew Welsh. Actually, Jerilyn is staying with the daughter of ;he Welshs', who is HI sorority ister at Indiana University. As Mrs. Jones slated, "when Jerilyn is staying with the Welsh family we can feel sure that she is in good hands and we don'l have to worry about her." Does the family of the "500' Mile Queen plan to attenci the race this year? They certainly do, and are now making .plans to watch Jerilyn as she reigns supreme over bhe exciting' activites always in evidence, on race day. One member of her family, her nine-yeor-old brother 'William, is more than excited over race day. The question is - is .he more excited over' 33 . speeding race cars or the fact that Ms sister reigns over the whole show? Perhaps that question vrill never be answered, 'but one i'hing is cectain, f the Jones family of Flora will be mighty proud folks come Memorial, Day, 1982.

By THOMAS COLLINS They seem.to have decided down in Mecklenburg, County, North Carolina, that retired: folks are people. Mecklenburg is where Charlotte is located, and they've organized there a "Committee on Aging" under the suspices of a public agency called Heart Services of Charlotte and Mecklenburg. Heart Services are headed up by a vivacious young .lady-with the' Dixie name of Marlbelle Scoggin. Mrs. Scoggin's group has published a booklet called "The Outlook for Oldsters in Mecklenburg." In it are these segments: . , AN AGE .MAP—showing where people.over 65 live in the county, io you can pick your best neighborhood. NEED A JOB?—a survey of job opportunities for older people which 'explains that good jobs aren't growing on trees, but that small companies 'and temporary assignments offer .some pros- oects, that there is no upper age imit on qualified persons who wish substitute teaching jobs, that ) per cent of companies answer- ng a survey on the subject said .hey would hire new employees survey of educational institutions where older people can learn everything' from arithmetic to auto mechanics. PROJECTS—"Never was there community in which so many civic, fraternal, patriot. do with a human being's capacity to contribute, though it is a handy, piece of information to have available when one is planning birlhday parties, voting for 1he firsij lime or applying for a driver's license. But except .for its value as a vital statistic, chronologic age is relatively meaningless. .. "Our goal should be the attainment of a healthy maturity in the later years, with emphasis on worthwhile and satisfying performance. Our aim should be to increase the function the efficiency of our senior citizens, rather than, just add to the minutes, hours, days and years of their live;:. "Few who reach retirement hav<! lived useless lives. .." The Mecklenburg booklet (which can be had as a public service for :25 cents from the Committee on Aging, 526 Charlottetown Mall, Charlotte, N. C.) reflects a -dedication to older people that is seldom found in this country, except in a few of the retirement communities in California and Florida. (COPYRIGHT 1962,' GENERAL FEATURES CORP.)
