Photograph article dated March 25, 1948 partially reads, "Guys who care fore good looking girls ought to picket Frances Royce, a cute trick herself, because she's doing a man's work that hadn't ought to be done by 'no girl.' She's the manager of a candidate for the queen title in the Pacoima Day queen contest. There must be 20,000 lads in the Valley who would sail for that job--money and hours no factor involved. But Frances beat 'em to the deal and has undertaken to grab off a queen's role for her candidate, blonde and statuesque Barbara Gallaher....But somehow we can't help hoping they don't make too good a showing. What if all the girls got girls to run their publicity ventures? Where would us guys who meet such interesting people get off, eh?" At left, publicity manager, Frances Royce and her candidate, Barbara Gallaher.; See images #00114813 through #00114815 for all photos in this series.
