"Although columns have been written about Miss Norma Descygne Smallwood (Miss America) as a home girl, yesterday she was offered two prime essentials of every home—a husband and a cook stove. She frowned on the proposed husband, but took the cookstove. 'Cookstoves are sometimes essential and husbands—well, at least they are not absolutely essential just now,' said Miss Smallwood."

"'Miss America' Offered Hubby And Cookstove," The Atlantic City Daily Press, 9/13/1926, p. 1
