Miss Virginia Anderson, Bend girl who ruled over this city’s recent Mirror Pond Pageant and the Fourth of July stampede as Queen Virginia I, tomorrow will be taken on an airplane trip to Portland and will be guest of the Portland Lions at their noonday meeting in the Oregon Grille. Miss Anderson will be accompanied on her trip to Portland by Mrs. Edna Dutt, with Lawrence J. Sohler as pilot.
The Sohler plane will land at the Swan Island airport, where a delegation of Portland Lions will be on hand to meet the Bend girl and her traveling companion. The Lions of Portland are to entertain Miss Anderson. In the evening, Miss Anderson and Mrs. Dutt will be escorted back to Swan Island, for the return flight with Sohler to Bend.
The air trip to Portland in the Sohler plane was one of the awards won by Miss Anderson in placing first in Bend’s Fourth of July queen contest.
