PAGE TEN LOVELY LADIES ALL FALL IN LOVE WITH CATALINA Thirty .young women newspaper contest winners from Alaska, Oregon and Washington, arrived at Santa Catalina Island oil Tuesday, accom- panied by Mr. and Mrs. Don Eck of the National Editorial Association, the publishers of their own newspapers. The group comprises the third an- nual tour of California sponsored by the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association, headed by J. C. Kaynor, publisher of the Ellensburg Washing- ton Evening Record as chairman of the tour, and Mrs. Kaynor as hostess. Included in the party were Professor W.

In a questionnaire of first choice of places they wanted to see in their California-Mexico tour, two-thirds of the young women listed Santa Cata- lina Island first, San Francisco's Chi- natown second, and Mexico third. Nineteen of the young women an- swered an emphatic "No" to the ques- tion as to whether or not they were interested in the movies, and only seven answered "Yes". Of the thirty contestants the ques- tionnaire showed that ten are blondes, four strawberry blondes and sixteen, brunettes. The average age is 21, av- erage height, five feet, three and a half inches. Twenty are high school graduates and nine have attended col- lege. Seven are stenographers, six have clerical positions, one is a mu- sician, four are in newspaper work and the remainder are still in high school or living at home. The winners included Mary Mitchell and Peggy Marsch of Anchorage, Alaska; Lois Morrisson, Anna E. Fir- kins, Ruth A. Yanger, Clarabell Mc- Guire, Lou Johnson of Olympia, Wash.; Marjorie A.
