GIRLS IN THE ROSE
Set for the Rose Bowl at Pasadena on New Year's Day are football teams from
Southern California and Ohio State. Also heading for the Bowl are two other
squads, admittedly not as good at football but considerably better looking.
Presiding over the Tournament of Roses will be one of seven Pasadena City
College coeds (top); the losers will act as her court. And cheering their
husbands on will be the wives (bottom) of 12 members of the Ohio State
The Rose Bowl Queen finalists who were selected from 1,800 coeds at Pasadena
City College (left to right): Patricia Scott, 18; Roxanne Boyd, 18; Joanne
Martin, 18; Marilyn Smuin, 19; Joan Gentry, 17; Susan Quarness, 18; Sheila
Breault, 19. The final judging for the title of Queen of the Roses will take
place on December 10.
The wives of 12 Ohio State football players (front row, left to right): Mrs.
Dave Leggett, Mrs. Bob Lilienthal, Mrs. Bob Thornton and Mrs. Howard Cassady.
Back row: Mrs. Jim Reichenbach, Mrs. Bud Bond, Mrs. Tom Dillman, Mrs. Ken
Thompson, Mrs. Jerry Harkrader, Mrs. Lee Nussbaum, Mrs. Tom Spears and Mrs.
bullets of the National Basketball Association were in trouble last week.
Firmly mired in the cellar of the eastern division, the fizzling Bullets were
also in dire need of some financial priming. Civic angels worked feverishly to
raise the $100,000 necessary to rescue the Bullets from extinction. For their
money the angels would receive only two real assets: the franchise and a
red-hot rookie guard named Frank Selvy.
Small in stature
for pro basketball (6 ft. 3 in.), Frank Selvy attended Furman University in
South Carolina. Playing against some of the nation's top teams he smashed
almost every collegiate scoring record in the books—free throws, total points
and average—in a three-year career. Drafted by Baltimore for the 1954 season,
Rookie Selvy quickly showed he could hold his own against the pros, last week
led the league in scoring with 277 points.
