    Glitter and splendour are the keynote as the Japanese preliminaries for the 1958 Miss World Contest get under way in Tokyo's Metropolitan Gymnasium. Forty-eight striking young beauties are taking part in this year's contest.

    The contestants are examined for facial expression, poise and manner of speech. Thirty girls survive this first ordeal. In the second series of tests, the number is still further reduced to fifteen.

    The lucky winner of the Miss World contest from Japan is 23 year old Miss Hisako Okuse of Aomori Prefecture, in north Japan; Height, 167 cm; weight, 54 kilos; bust, 87 cm; waist, 56 cm; hip, 92 cm.
