Inscription.  
"The new Miss America, 1939, hasn't decided what sort of a man she would want to marry, but she does know that when the time comes she wants five children, three boys and two girls, and she has named ready for them. She hates housework and dishes but admits they'll be jobs to be done....Pat won the crown early this morning and said, 'Gee, I'm glad. Now I can pay mother's hospital bill.'"
