'U' Student Wins State Beauty Contest
By LEE MARKS
Rosaline Sappington, '56, has
been chosen to represent the state
of Michigan in the first National -
College Queen Contest, to be held
at the Di Lido Convention hail in
Miami Beach, on Jan. 8, 9 and 10.
A board of judges headed by . *
Bess Myerson, Miss America of
1945, chose the individual state
contestants, basing their decisions
On "50 per cent beauty and 50 per
cent brains." Miss* Sappington, a
pre-law student, had to submit a
250 word essay entitled '"What A
College Education Means To Me."
MISS SAP'PINGTON, who has Zam
won several other beauty contests,
was at Boyne Mountain with the
University Ski club wheni a tele-
gram arrived with the news of
her victory. "I was so excited, I *
ran out into the hotel lounge and I ^6

Although the University prohib-
its campus elections for the pur-
pose of choosing college queens,
it does not prevent students from
competing in nation-wide contests.
At 'U' Museumn
Two exhibits, "Watercolors and
Drawings by Gavarni" and "Per-
sian-Hindu Miniatures," are on
display this month at the Museum
of Art. ,
Circulated by the Smithsonian
Institution, the fifty Gavarni wat-
ercolors and drawings disclose less
familiar achievements of this hu-
morous French nineteenth century
artist, better known in this coun-
try for his lithographs.
The works represent two
phases of Gavarni's artistic de-
velopment. The first covers his
extended sojourns in England in
1847 and 1849. "Peasant Girl
Smoking," "English Beggar" and
'The Barmaid" belong to this
period, characterized by a com.-
plicated watercolor technique
employing brilliant highlights.
The second phase begins in 1851
after his return to France and lasts
until his death in 1866. "Reverie,"
"Two Actors," "Chocolate Vendor"
end "Head of a Woman" were done
in this period. .
Works in these years are done in
pencil heightened with colored inks
In shades of red, green and brown.
The collection of 21 Persian,
Moghul and Rajput miniatures
from the collection of the Port-
land, Ore., Museum of Art are on
display In the North Gallery.
