Rool A person called "Name Withheld" has written an obviously angry letter protesting the Elvis contest winners. This person thought he/she should have won although he/she said: "Don't think I'm mad or jealous, because I ain't." "Name Withheld" raises some fair questions, however, and I will answer them: 1. How many entries were received? In excess of 300 separate "envelopes arrived. Several contained more than one entry: one contained eight. Approximately 50 post cards were received, about-35~ of which were from the same individual. 2. Did you read them all personally? Yes. 3. How did you judge these? Just like the rules said -- dumbest answers won. Dumb may be in the eye of the reader, but every contest has to have a judge. 4. Who helped you -- ol' Taylor Jones? No, ol' Taylor Jones was not one of the judges. The three who ^assisted me are all friends and em- ployes of The Associated Press. Their names were kept secret so they would not be subjected to bribery. They are Jennifer Kerr, Wayne Slater, and Robert C. Welling. Ms. Kerr has seen Presley perform in Hawaii, has worked for the Bangkok Banner (or whatever they call that paper in Thailand) and has a shirt she bought there. It's a Thai : ^dyed tee shirt. She admits, however, that she liked Elvis better when there was a little less of him to love. Slater is'the person whVohce sug"- 22Ti CH.mE.STO.Y. H . VA. Ereafcshow gested that the J.P. in J.P. Rool stood for Just Pubescent and that J.P. Rool actually as a 13 year old girl frim Marmet. Welling often covers statehouse news for The Associated Press and therefore is an expert judge ol dumbness. He suggested that 1 would be better off financially lo auction the prizes instead of giving them away, but I refused. 5. What do you consider dumb? (And do not say my letter). If 1 have to stick to your ground rules, 1 have no answer here. Ms. Kerr did say. however, that if you had mailed this letter to the contest, she'd have chosen you a winner. So. "Name Withheld" and all you others, that's how it was done. Don't expect it to happen again -unless Mick Jagger comes lo town. We only mess with biggies.
