Librarian Chooses Marilyn, Wins Prize

Mrs. Donald H. Bassist, a librarian at the Business School, won $20,000 last Friday by guessing that Marilyn Monroe would win the 1956 Hollywood Fame Poll Award.

Mrs. Bassist won the grand prize on the "Strike It Rich" television show in a drawing of all the contestants in a national sweepstakes who selected Miss Monroe as the Fame Poll winner.

The Hollywood Fame Poll Award is given each year to the top money-making movie actress or actor.
