A new Miss Glendale will be selected from among 18 candidates competing in a beauty pageant Saturday sponsored by the Glendale Jaycees. Gina Ericson, the reigning queen, will crown the winner.
A total of four panelists from Burbank Studios, Merle Norman Cosmetics and I. Magnin will judge contestants in swimsuits and evening gowns, and on their ability to communicate.
The pageant will include cocktails and dinner, starting at 6 p.m., at Glendale Civic Auditorium, 1401 N. Verdugo Road. Entertainment will be provided by the Dan Savant Orchestra. Tickets, being sold by the Jaycees and at the door, cost $25 and $20.
