College Heights Herald article regarding homecoming queen selection:

After today, those countless posters plastered all over campus advertising Homecoming queen candidates will be useless.

The 15 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists when the ballots are counted after today's election at Downing University Center. Voting will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The finalists will appear in a fashion show at 6 p.m. tomorrow sponsored by J.C. Penny's at Greenwood Mall. There will be a banquet in their honor at the Greenwood Executive Inn at 6:45 p.m. Thursday.

The candidates will be presented at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Big Red's Roar Friday in the fine arts center amphitheater.

Interviews Saturday morning before a panel of seven judges will determine the queen and the first and second runners up. The winners will be crowned at halftime during the Homecoming game Saturday against Troy State. The game begins at 5:30 p.m.

Homecoming candidates must be sponsored by an university organization, and may be sponsored by two.
