HAROLD WILLIAMSON America the Beautiful?
In the United States only one beauty contest really matters-Miss America.
JOHN PITMAN for Man Alive looks at American competitions beginning with the La Petite Miss. This year the winner was quite old - five. She confidently explained to the judges what she wants to be when she grows up: Miss America. Miss America isn'just another bathing beauty competition. Miss America is beautiful, truthful and wholesome. Miss America is the symbol of all that America possesses. All the good things that is.
