Subject: As I recall, back in that era, it seemed like sash factor was more closely linked to population. In other words, the states with the largest populations at the time (NY, IL, FL, CA, TX, etc) seemed to have the best chances of making the final 5. Sometime after that it tilted in favor of the southern states for quite a while.

In reply to: MDS 's message, "Very interesting!! This is not the same scenario, but another interesting New York and Illinois coincidence: the first and second Miss USA and Miss Teen USA winners, respectively, were from New York and Illinois. Jackie Loughery from New York was Miss USA 1952, followed by Myrna Hansen from Illinois, who was Miss USA 1953. Then, Ruth Zakarian from New York was Miss Teen USA 1983, followed by Cherise Haughen from Illinois, who was Miss Teen USA 1984." on 07:33:09 02/24/18 Sat
