Word is back now that Academy of Applied Sciences researchers really have found evidence of something big and scary on the bottom of Loch Ness. They spotted it on radar. Nessie the monster, if it is Nessie, didn't fall for that routine about pouring sex essences into the water (SI, Oct. 5). Sex essences, indeed. As one local man observed, "Nessie's past it."
Where are the beauty queens of yesterday? Well, how about Peggy Collier, Miss Greene County, Arkansas of 1959. Married a man named Pig. Went into hog raising. Now tours the nation representing the Arkansas pork industry. President of the women's auxiliary of the Arkansas Pork Producers Association—they're called the Porkettes—and holder of the state women's hog-judging title. Wears a Peggy Pig wristwatch. Has a smashing pigskin wardrobe. Roots for the Arkansas Razorbacks. Shall we go on?
