Myerson visited wounded veterans after she was crowned Miss America.

as the publisher." Referring to
a front page story in Tues-
day's Detroit News, focusing
on the "Bess Mess" rather
than the "Bess Book,"
Margolis added, "We wouldn't
have had to worry about
reporters doing front page
stories like that."
Dworkin, Margolis and
Myerson met privately with
The Jewish News Tuesday,
musing on the history of the
`30s and '40s and the dif-
ferences between the America
that proclaimed Bess "Miss"
and the America now, in
which her book appeared. All
three women are hopeful that
it will turn into a major mo-
tion picture. "I would like it
to be a movie," said Myerson.
The script has already been
With coiffed hair, large
silver earrings, and a black
and white suit trimmed in
red, the five-foot-ten brunette
still measures somewhere
near 35-25-35. The only dif-
ference, she quips, "I now get
senior citizen discounts."
As always, Myerson
measures each word careful-
ly, perhaps more so than ever

before. Like any good grand-
mother, she proudly displays
a picture of her precious blond
grandchild, Samantha, 5,
who lives in Los Angeles with
Myerson's daughter, Barra,
and son-in-law, Brian Reilly.
(Myerson lovingly refers to
her granddaughter by her
• Hebrew name "Rivka Reilly.")
As for the intermarriage:
"Times change," said Myer-
son. "Things happen that you
begin to accept. There's a
coming, going and returning
all through our lives."
For Miss America, 1945,
there have been many dif-
ficult times, having survived
polio, cancer, two tumultuous
marriages, a mild stroke, a
failed 1980 bid for the U.S.
Senate and now the charges
of "serious misconduct" in
public office. In spite of the
difficulties, Myerson still
stands tall. She has let go of
the low profile she held on to
for the last few months and,
encouraged by the warm
reception in Detroit, is off
plugging her book in city
after city. "It was tremen-
dous," she said of her time
here. "So comforting."
