Linda McGlone, An Amputee, Crowned ' Miss Day In The Sun'
An attractive, vivacious, 23-
year- old housewife of Farming-dale,
was crowned " Miss Day
in the Sun" aboard the 38thannual
Hudson River cruise, sponsored
by the Institute for the
Crippled and Disabled for over
1,500 handicapped individuals of
the New York area.
She is Linda Lengler McGlone,
wife of Peter J., an electronics
technician. The couple recently
celebrated their first wedding
Linda, an amputee who has been
a patient of the Institute located
at 23rd Street and First Avenue
in Manhattan^ sincetheageofnine,
received a citation for outstanding
achievement in overcoming
severe difficulties and achieving
a happy, successful, well-balanced
At the Institute, which this
year observes the 50th Anniversary
of service to the disabled,
Linda was recently provided with
an artificial leg.
The citation was presented by
Mrs. William S. Kilborne, Vice
President and Trustee of the Institute.
A diamond tiara was placed on
Linda's gleaming blonde hair and
a floral bouquet was presented
to her at the crowning ceremonies.
The statuesque, smiling Linda
well deserved her day in the sun,
just on the basis of her current
activities alone. She is avidly
interested in cooking, dancing,
singing and the a r t s . And she
likes to ice skate. Nothing pi eases
her more than getting dressed
up for a Saturday night of dancing,
preferable at some spot where
she might be called upon for a few
Her interest in the arts is now
concentrated in the field of interior
design, in which she hopes to
make a career. She plans to a c company
her husband to night
school this Fall so she can take interior
decoration courses while
he is going for his degree. Peter
recently completed a four year
stint in the Navy and wants to pursue
his engineering studies.
Linda has been a receptionist
switchboard operator for a local
firm for the past two and a half
vears. Because of her interest
in people, she intends to remain
in this line of work for the time
being, even though she recently
completed a correspondence
course in airline reservations.
Her interest in people, particularly
handicapped people, was
manifested a few weeks ago when
an article appeared in a local
daily newspaper about a returning
serviceman who hadlostaleg
in Vietnam. The article implied
that the soldier was somewhat
despondent over having to abandon
the idea of a career as an
athletic coach. Linda got on
the phone to him immediately,
gave him a pep- talk from her
side of the field, and restored
his faith in himself. Now he
wants to be a coach again.
Perhaps the best way of summing
up Linda's accomplishments is
in quoting her citation, which
commends her for:
" Superior attainment in all
walks of life despite a serious
disabling handicap dating from
" Showing courage, determination
and resourcefulness in a-chieving
a happy, balanced, purposeful
life as both a housewife
" Pursuing independently a well
rounded education and for maintaining
a lively interest in sports,
arts and in establishing a professional
" Proving by personal example
that rehabilitated handicapped individuals
contributing members of the community."
