Longmont Ledger (Longmont, Boulder County) Dec 31, 1909
Miss Barbara Allen Chosen for Queen from Longmont
The result of the ballot for Longmont Queen of the Apple Show in figures is as follows: Barbara Allen…..61, 670 Georgia Smith….50, 570 Grayce Lee………42, 640
Miss Barbara Allen, the winner in the contest, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.F. Allen. She is a Longmont girl by birth and rearing.Man of the good people from the apple growing country around Longmont, though it only justice that the country not city have the representative.But the plans for the balloting were such that she had to rake her chance against the city girl.Miss Barbara Allen is a very attractive young lady and Longmont will be well represented.As to who shall be the real queen, it remains to be seen.From last reports from headquarters we learn that plans for that election had not been perfected; thought it is understood that to the vote which the queen’s attendant will get the election in Denver will be added the vote she received in her home town.Of course there will be no candidate for queen not in the list of the queen’s attendant. The other young ladies in Longmont’s contest showed their popularity and the large number of their friends by the generous vote they received and are grateful in consequence.They have nothing to be ashamed of in the result.
