Inscription.  
"After I relinquish my crown next September to another American girl, I plan to take the $5,000 educational scholarship I won with my title, and realize another ambition, which is to continue my dramatic education at the Pasadena Playhouse. One day I hope, through hard work and study, to become an accomplished actress. The experiences of this year will aid me in reaching that goal."
