Who Will Be the Carnival Queen?
Remember the Queen contest closes Saturday night at 12 o’clock.
If you want to vote for your favorite you have only today and tomorrow. Two days only. Ask for Queen votes where you buy your goods.
The race is getting quite interesting and lively. First one then another is ahead. It looks like anybody’s race.
Counts will be made today at 5 pm; Saturday at 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 pm. Results will be posted on the bulletin board at The Cove, so that people may know frequently how the vote stands.
The merchants will be glad to give votes with cash purchases if you ask for them because they are boosting the Carnival.
Remember that none but yellow and green tickets count. The other colors are last year’s tickets and will not be counted, so do not put them in the voting boxes where they confuse the men who do the counting.

Someone has put a lot of old vote coupons in the ballot boxes. This the committee requests you not do as the tickets will not be counted and it only causes delays in counting because the old tickets have to be sorted out. The tickets this year are two colors, yellow and green, and no other colors will be counted unless they bear the signature of the contest manager.
Queen votes are given 10 votes for $1 cash purchases at:
The Bass Co.
Walters & Williams
Huffman & Brewer
Brigance Hardware Co.
Smith, Moore & Williams Co.
Caddo Mercantile Co.
Corner Drug Store
When you make a cash purchase to any of the above don’t fail to call for your Queen votes.
Miss Harris is Carnival Queen
The Contest for Queen of the Corn Carnival closed Saturday night with much interest. The race finally narrowed to two contestants, Miss Nina Hauer and Miss Thelma Harris. The former receiving 273,000, and the latter receiving 306,000 votes, each receiving a larger vote than any previous queen.
Hundreds of people remained downtown until midnight to hear the returns, far more interst being manifested than in the last primary election. Both the young ladies were popular and deserving, but one had to lose. Miss Harris is a charming young lady and will make an elegant queen.
The queen will be the center of the social activities Thursday and… (rest of paragraph is mostly unreadable. Mentions the parade and float judging and that the event is free.)
