McConnell, died Monday in Huntington Memorial Hospital. She was 77 years old. As Hallie Woods, a 18-year-old Pasadena High School student, she presided over the festivities in 1905. Although the New Year's Day event that was to become an Internationally famous spectacle had been inaugurated 16 years earlier, it was not until 1905 that the idea of royalty in American democracy was introduced.' Miss Woods was chosen by fel- low students at PHS. She was not only a reigning beauty of her days, but an expert.seam- stress. She sewed the royal gown that she wore on her big day. And, despite her many regal responsibilities, she found time to help decorate the float she rode in the parade. On that hot day, with the tem- perature dose to the Sfl's the autos in the procession were moved from the rear to 'he front to keep radiators from boiling over while trying to move at a slow pace behind the horses. It .was chilly in the earlier morning hours, however, and Queen Hallie disclosed in later years that she wore Ion? woolen underwear beneath her finery, at her mother's insistence.

Laos Coup Leaders in Conference Laos (AP) Rightist coup leaders met today ith President Johnson's diplo- matic troubleshooter but re- used to yield power to neutral- ist Premier Prince Souvanna 'houma, informants reported. U.S. Undersecretary of State Villiam Bundy, sent by Johnson o emphasize Washington's dis- approval of Sunday's coup, met or an hour with the coup lead- er, Gen. Kouprasith Abhay, and lis deputy, Gen. Siho Lanphou- :hacoul. Cooped up in his villa by the rebels, Souvanna insisted that he and his coalition government still function. The guard around him permitted Bundy and his party to meet with Souvanna be- fore going into conference with Ihe coup leaders. With Bundy at both meetings were U.S. Ambassador Leonard Unger; the British charge d'af- faire, John Benson; French Am- bassador Pierre-Millet, and Au- stralian Ambassador Malcolm Morris. While the coup leaders are anti-Communist, the Western powers fear their bid for power vill encourage the Pathet Lao :o quit the coalition and open a drive to seize all the country. Despite the rightist troops ringing Souvanna's villa, the situation appeared to be return- ing to normal. Souvanna's se- called coalilion government has been'a powerless facade of a regime for 14.months.
