Miss Electronics of 1950 and Miss Microwave

The Institute of Radio Engineers chose 19-year-old Toy Palaske to be "Miss Electronics of 1950." She got to wear a swimsuit covered with electronics symbols and a crown topped with a television antenna.

A few papers reported a different title for her, "Miss Microwave of 1950".

I assume she was both simultaneously.
