Transcript Coeds seek Miss Houstonian title UH wins ^Pancake Eating' contes Sharon Eilers, business sophomore was chosen Miss Houstonian 1969 from a field of 25 finalists. Likely to set a trend for the selection of future Miss Houstonian, Vanity Fair '69 was a far more elaborate production than previous contests had been. Finalists modeled date and formal attire to the background music of the "New Brass" and the commentating of KILT disc jockey Jay Rogers. Performing before a panel of four informed judges, including television personality Ron Stone, the contestants were graded on beauty, poise and personality. For the first time in the history of the contest, Miss Houstonian was announced at the end of the judging, culminating an evening of pageantry and excitement. Left, competitor Gary Simms suffers from exhaustion after gulping down mouthfuls of pancakes. Below, Myron McReynolds exercises his jaws and Judy Beust and Russell Murphy, the winners, take time out. Beverly Dee, another UH contestant continues to eat. 66 College teams across the nation rallied to syrup and silver dollar sized pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, February 18. In a pancake eating contest at the International House of Pancakes, four UH teams competed with Rice and SMU in Texas. When the tally was taken, the team of Judy Beust and Russell Murphy arose victorious consuming 333 pancakes. They made a clean sweep in the state, regional and national contests, winning a trip to England. Miss Houstonian 1968, Patsy Burns, congratulates her successor Sharon Eilers, far left. Leigh Burlingame answers questions, left.
