The Sigma Chi fraternity annually held a beauty contest. This particular event took place and was filmed at Silver Springs. The women first walk out attired in bathing suits and high heels. They stand near a large pool and face the judges (four men and one woman) and then turn around to display their backs. The women then pose in a line by the spring and onlookers are shown. One of the women contestants holds a sign reading "Sigma Chi Derby Queen Contest".
