    Background: In the face of strong competition, "Miss Holland" - 21-year-old Corine Rottschafer, carried off the title of "Miss World", in London, Nov. 10.

    Blonde, blue-eyed Corine, a model, was chosen from 37 of the world's most beautiful girls. One of the tallest girls in the competition - she's 5ft 9ins - her vital statistics are: 37-22-37.

    Belying the "dumb-blonde" tag, Corine speaks fluent French, English and German, as well as her native language.

    Five of the nine judges voted for her. The other four votes went to "Miss Peru", 17-year-old Maria Rossell, a dark-haired student with a love of travel.

    "Miss Israel", a soldier in the Israeli Army came third. 18-year-old Zira Shomrat, a dark-haired green-eyed beauty, obtained special leave from national service to take part in the contest.

    "Miss United Kingdom" - 22-year-old Anne Thelwell, a laboratory technician from Wirral, Cheshire - came fourth, first British girl to earn such a high place in the competition.

    Blonde, blue-eyed Danish model, Kirsten Olsen, claimed fifth place. Kirsten's ambitions: to travel then settle down to marriage.

    With the Miss World title went prize money of GBP500, a silver trophy and light-weight car. Corine, and other suitable competitors, will also be given a screen test by Columbia Pictures.
