nel who annually send out sheets
of statistics on the players and
the teams who will participate in
the Rose Bowl, the Pasadena
Tournament of Roses organization
graciously sent out a statisticj
sheet on Queen Margo and her
court.
Queen Margo is 19 years old,
and is five-foot-six inches tall.
She has blonde hair and blue eyes
and weighs in at a sleek 120
pounds.
She has a cat (named Copy)
and a dog, Frankie. She attends
Pasadena City College, and \has
enrolled in the music school. Even-
tually, Margo hopes to be'a music
teacher.

will be the outside receivers.
The girl, who said, "ever since,
I moved to California, I've watched
the Rose Parade and Queen" now
gets a chance to have her dream
come true. "As every girl, I
dreamed of one day being her,"
Margo cooed.
But, just as any self-respecting
woman, Miss Johnson does not like
to be stereotyped. She told The
Daily that the Rose Bowl Queen
Contest is not a beauty contest. It
started out with 626 girls from 16
different schools, all within the
Pasadena school system,
"It's just a coincidence that this
year's queen and her court all
come from Pasadena City College,"
Margo told us.

ance to the essence of the Rose
Bowl, that dealt with sucht timely
social subjects as what the girls
thought about the 18-year-old
vote and how they would introduce
their parents.
The final announcement as to
who would be queen was made at
a dinner where the girls did not
speak, but just ate.
Queen Margo, only having been
a naturalized American for two
years prefers America to Canada
because "of the freedom of speech
issue, and the ease in which an
American can run for public of-
fice.' She did not comment on
whether the Rose Bowl Queen
was a public office.
Margo sees her position as queen
as being a good will ambassador
for the city of Pasadena and the
Rose Bowl. Her function as queen
is "to get the people excited about
the Rose Bowl game and parade."
Although this takes time away
from school, the sexy freshman
says that her teachers have been
understanding in allowing her to
make up lectures and exams
missed during the hectic weeks
before the game and parade.
Margo, although asked not to
answer questions dealing with pol-
itics, did tell The Daily that she
was against the 18-year-old vote
because "I know that when I was
18, I was not ready to vote, and
could not understand all that was
happening."
But, she reassured The Daily,
"When I do vote, you can bet that
I'll vote intelligently." She de-
