Miss Smithee said the contest was five days of practice and rehearsing, with everyone of the 40 contestants tired after sleepless nights, but getting on stage and giving it "all you have.);' "Even though we were tired most of the time, we enjoyed every second of the pageant," Miss Smithee said. "Every girl tried to help everyone else, while at the same time trying her best to be the top girl in the judges eyes." At first eyeryone wants to win, but as the; contest .progresses, the girls, in their own minds, pick a fellow contestant whom she thinks will be the new Miss Illinois and silently roots for that girl, the Alton contestant said. Miss Alton, who sang "Till There Was You" in the talent portion of the pageant, said contestants don't have time to be nervous about their, talent because of the encouragement giv- n by their fellow local contest winners. "And speaking of talent," she said, '"it was all terrific."

"But that was our own fault," she added.
