The response to the call for nominees has been most encour-I aging, Mrs. Toland said today, and ! she urges all organizations and { groups who have not yet sent Jn j the name of their candidate to do ' so immediately. I The closing day for the nonnna-j tions .was originally scheduled for tomorrow, but since there are a number of organizations which have not yet had sufficient time to select a candidate, Mrs. Toland said that the final day for submitting nominations has been ox-tended to April 27. In the' contest, which will get under way in earnest shorUy after May 1, a queen will be selected for each of the principal communities in the county; and from these, the ladies of the court, will be elected the queen of the "Prairie Cavalcade." The queen of the Cavalcade will be the official Rreeter for the Centennial celebration, will reigti at the Prairie Cavalcade pageant, and will win an all-expen.se trip to Hollywood for herself and any companion of her choice. _The IrijL^to JlQllywoQd,_will.-ba on the .Santa Fe'.s hixjiry train, the "El Capital!," and sufficient expense money~will be awarded lo afford a pleasant vacation in the movie and TV capital of the world.
