Miss Lappe was crowned by Maribelle Ives of Rolfe, last year's queen, and the event was probably the second exciting moment for Miss Lappe during the clay. The convertible in which she was riding and two others carrying band queens, were involved in a three-car crackup just as the morning parade began. A convertible owned by Harry Green berg and driven by Brocke Laws, jumped forward when he put it in gear and struck a convertible owned by Fred Kent Jr and driven by David Cowan. Miss Lappe was riding in the Kent car. The Kent car was then pushed into a third convertible driven by Sandy Haag and owned by William J. Langstrom. There was about $750 damage to the Greenberg car, another $UQQ to the Kent car and about $275 to the Langstrom machine. None of the queens or their driv* ers was injured. No charges were filed. A large crowd watched the parade and the evening ceremonies. Exclusive Advance Photo by Bruce Ritchie,
