The Miss America contest was

the title of Miss America was a
surprise to everyone, accord

in the University, the beautiful Miss Norman was privileged to
enter the competition for Miss America.
During the contest entrants

companied each girl at all times.
Even mothers were not allowed

The one opportunity for so

ball where the girls were es
corted by midshipmen from the
Naval Academy. Miss Norman
was paired with a Lt. Com
