Background: Twenty-five beautiful girls gathered at Orly Airport, Paris, France, June 23, before flying off to New York in an Air France Boeing-707 jet-liner. Representing the corresponding number of European countries, the girls will compete for the title of "Miss Universe" at long Beach, California, in July.
In California they will be joined by contestants from North and South America, Asia, and other parts of the World. Last year's contest was won by a Japanese girl, for the first time in the "Miss Universe" competition's history.
"Miss Universe" will win a film screen test, an expenses-paid tour of the United States plus some GBP4,000 advertising and modelling contracts, besides many other gifts.
