Diane McIntyre, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.W. McIntyre, Rt. 4 Snohomish, was crowned Everett Junior College homecoming queen at an assembly Friday in the Campus Center. A 1961 graduate of Snohomish High School, she was the queen candidate of Photography Club. Crowning her was Barry Van Ry, president of Associated Students.
