'the ugly mans competition was a fun way of raising money during wartime with one man from each of the towns of Doodlakine and Kellerberrin vying for the title . It was also another form of the quite lovely rivalry that always existed between the two towns . Lots of fun was had in the contest and there was constant coverage of its progress in the local press usually headlined with the question WHERE IS THE DISTRICTS UGLIEST MAN?. All sorts of functions at which the contestant would appear were held to raise money with the winner being the one who chalked up the most votes which cost a penny to buy.'.
