MOSCOW, April 4 (RIA Novosti) - Delegates of the Miss World international beauty contest are paying a maiden official visit to Moscow. These are Peru's Maria Julia Garcia-current Miss World; Julia Evelin Morley, competition president; Tatiana Sidorchuk, current Russian Beauty; and Tatiana Andreyeva, Russian Beauty competition director.

The delegates are in Russia chiefly on a charitable cause to visit the Central Children's Clinical Hospital, meet Russia's foremost political activists and business tycoons, and arrange a charity evening party.

Before Moscow, the Magnificent Four have visited Perm in the Urals, Ms. Sidorchuk's native city. Russian Beauty made a subscription there to collect 420,000 rubles-enough for five badly ill children to receive expensive treatment. R27.88/$1 is today's Central Bank rate.

The Miss World competition is not a mere beauty contest. It is an essential event, with its telltale motto of "Beauty with a purpose", pointed out Ms. Morley.

Each Miss World becomes a goodwill ambassador for a year to go from country to country in all parts of the globe for charitable collections in favor of the Variety Club, the world's largest international children's organization.
