  • Description

    Titles read: "HOP GIRL QUEEN" (Dublin issue).

    Galveston, Texas, United States of America.

    Various shots show a beauty contest where the candidates are all car hops (waitresses at drive in restaurants). It looks like a war bond charity contest. The girls parade about and serve food to servicemen sitting in open cars on the catwalk.

    The winning "Glamburger Girl" is Joy Walls of Houston, a pretty brunette. She shakes hands with the mayor and he gives her the winner's trophy.
