Inscription.  
"I did some TV when we were first married, but acting was never my driving ambition....I did a Marilyn Monroe skit and song in the Miss America Pageant, but I'm not a singer, nor am I really an actress. Gary's career seemed to be taking off, and we decided it would be best for just one of us to be working....I'm always at home when the children come home from school."

Emma Bell, "Volunteer Work, Nutrition, Exercise Are Important To Marion," Birmingham News, 5/23/1978, p. 19
