HELP US FIND 'MISS VICTORY'...
... THE TYPICAL AMERICAN GIRL WAR WORKER


WHO IS the "typical American girl war worker?” In an effort to find the answer to this question, and to turn the spotlight of publicity on the patriotic young women who are doing their bit to help the United Nations win this all-out war for the preservation of our civilization, the New York Journal-American is conducting a contest to find "Miss Victory." Above, in the Bush jlant cafeteria of the Sperry Gyroscope Co., half a dozen young women employes are filling out their 'Miss Victory' entrance blanks. The contest is sponsored by the Sperry News, employee newspaper. The girls, five of whom are learners in the shop, are (left to right) Gloria P. Mier, Julia Wickholm, Elizabeth Devlin, Marcella M. Duignan, Ruth M. Meagher, and Eileen P. Cleary. The contest is evoking great interest.
