Studl&ntl ta CUaaie fjQ G&it&uticd Queen An event at the convocation which was held on Thursday, January 21, was the nomination and presentation of the Rochester Junior College Centennial Queen candidates. The girl chosen as our Centennial Queen will reign at the JC Centennial Ball, February 19. The primary election of the JC queen will take place on February 3 and will be followed by fhe final election, February 10. The first queen candidate to be presented at the convocation was Polly Sorida, who is representing the International Relations Club. Polly, who was introduced by LeRoy Christopherson, is a native of Hawaii, and a medica'l secretarial student at RJC. She is known to all as a tiny, dark haired miss with a lot of pep. Polly is the secretary of IRC and is also active in the Secretarial Club. Introducing the second candidate was Don Ryan. This young lady is another of JC's small, dark haired misses. She is Sherrill Davies, representative of the publications, Echo and Rajuco. Sherrill is a sophomore enrolled in the pre-education course. She is active on the Rajuco staff and is known to all for her big brown eyes. Third group to present a queen candidate were the Rajesters. Jerry Olerud presented their choice, Rosemary Moon. Rosie is an active member of the Rajesters and is also noted for her enthusiasm as a cheerleader at the JC basketball games. Helen Lawniczak introduced fhe next candidate, Marilyn Ernst. Marilyn is representing the Secretarial Club of which she is an active member. She is also a member of the Rajuco staff and is active in the Rajesters. Marilyn is another of JC's short, dark haired young ladies. Mary Ann Schuster, who is the only red haired miss in the contest, was next to be presented. Mary Ann was introduced by Dick Hamann, as the candidate for the Newman Club. She is active in both the Newman Club and Secretarial Club, and is the only girl representing the taller girls of JC. Next candidate to be presented was the choice of the Optics Club, Mary Williams. The introduction of Mary was a little out of the (Continued on page 5, col. 1) Council Presents Quiz Program One of the features af the January 21 convocation was a mock quiz program sponsored by the Student Council and presented by Wayne Webb with the assistance of Dave Dunn and Don Kruse. The students who participated as contestants were: Pat Cooper, John Ferguson, Colleen Schley, Don Ryan, and Lynn Peeler. The program was quite humorous, for the contestants had to answer their questions while chewing a mouthful of bubble gum. The first two contestants received as prizes: free rides on the down escalator at Dayton's, and free admittance to a matinee at the Rochester Outdoor Theatre. During the quiz the audience's reactions were controlled by Don Kruse manipulating the audience response cards. Things became confusing when he held the BOO card upside down and backwards. Colleen Schley was the lucky girl who won the grand prize, Lynn Peeler handcuffed to her wrist. They made a spectacular couple, tiny Colleen and the 6 foot, 200 pound hunk called Peeler. Colleen also was awarded a pass to enter the Sunday night wrestling matches—if accompanied by a Siamese twin. Peeler filled the bill. Panic almost resulted at the end of the program when Dave Dunn couldn't find the key to the handcuffs. Election Held One of the traditions of RJC is the annual election of a student to receive the Booster award. This award is given to the person whom the student body chooses in a popular election. The recipient of the Booster Cup is considered an outstanding booster of RJC, an energetic leader in school activities, and a loyal member of the student body. The first award was given in 1924, and since that time thirty-two students have had their names engraved on the cup, which included two ties. This year a different procedure was tried in obtaining nominations. Instead of oral nominations, ballots were given to the students attending the convocation on January 21. Each student present wrote his choice on the ballots which were picked up at the close of the meeting. This resulted in a total of seventeen nominations, twelve boys and five girls. The counting was done by Miss Evans, Dean of Student Affairs, who then submitted the six names with the most votes for the primary election held Monday, January 25. The six students topping the nomination list were all sophomores. These included the five sophomore members of the Student Council. Arranged alphabetically the candidates are: Elaine Harvey, Frank Roller, Sue Rye, Frank Smith, Dave Sperling, and Wayne Webb. Elaine Harvey has been an active participant in many organizations. At present she is managing editor of the Echo, having served as news editor in her fresh- (Continued on page 5, col. 3) Centennial Bail The JC Centennial Ball will be held February 19, at the Rochester Country Club.
