Text from newspaper caption: Misses Ruth and Naomi Stevenson of San Diego were chosen "Miss Presidents" in the contest at the California Pacific International Exposition to select the girl employee with the most personality and poise. The judges thought they were seeing double when the twin entry confronted them. The 18-year-old winners will receive valuable prizes and will rule the show for a day. Both are cashiers at the model $50, 000 home, Casa de Tempo, to be given away to some lucky fair visitor. Ruth is the lower.
