(AP) Twiggy's boyish figure would be lost among the 51 curvaceous beauties at the Miss USA pageant. And the girls here have some definite ideas on how the super- model would fare as a centest- ant. "She wouldn't quite make it here," snapped Judianne Magnusson o! Phoenix, Arizona's contestant, "Why, she has no Turned up nosei and cries of, "She's too skinny" accompanied the mere mention of the big- eyed Briton's name. None of the girls here would trade in their looks for the more famous — and more profitable — looks of Twiggy. Would Twiggy make it to the finals Saturday? "Never!" was the solemn judgment of Jean Galata, New Jersey's entry in the 16th annual Miss USA contest, "I think a woman should look like a women." "She looks just like a boy," said 36-24-36 Kathleen Solt of Jefferson, Iowa. "She's just not womanly," threw in Sandra Baldwin of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Even the dream of a top modeling career couldn't sway the lasses from their staunch disapproval. Some were willing to make minor concessions. "She's got a cute face," said Nancy Giuliano of Woonsocket, R.I. "But she looks unnatural." "I'd like to have her eyes," said Miss Massachusetts, Pamela Procter of Marblehead. "And I like her nose," offered Ohio's 36-23-35 blonde, Phyllis Smith of Caldwell. New York's Wendy Cox, who was recently forced to drop out of her prelaw studies at the University of Miami because of a skiing accident, said she has heard that the photographers in New York don't think Twiggy is so hot either. "I was in one photographer's studio in New York where they had darts thrown into her picture," the slender blonde said.
