Why did I enter the Miss Atlan-
tic City 1957 contest?
The pert brown-haired Michigan
coed laughed as she recalled her
"six day adventure" in this year's
Miss America pageant.
Last spring the Kiwanis Club
of Atlantic City, New Jersey, asked
Jean Fishack, ahsophomore at the
University, if she would be their
candidate for Miss Atlantic City.
Jean explained, "Actually the
sholarship offered was the incen-
tive, but since I hope to major in
speech I also considered the oppor-
tunity of speaking before large
"Beside she said, with a sparkle
in her eye, "you always go in with
a little fire of hope."
Having made her decision Jean
was, although she didn't know it
then, on the way to becoming a
member of the Miss America
Court of Honor.
Jean and 19 Others
First step in the competition saw
Jean and 19 other "beauties" in
bathing suits, evening dresses and
delivering prepared speeches last
June 30. As tension rose the judges
voted a tie for the first time in
They called Jean and another
contestant back to give extemper-
aneous speeches on "The Place of
Atlantic City in the Miss America
Remembers Jean: "I was lucky.
They called on me to speak before
I realized what was happening and
got nervous. Besides I thought that
everyone can't win and regardless
of where you place, you leave a
richer person in experience.
Any worries Jean might have
harbored were unfounded. She
Her new title made her official
hostess to Miss America contest-
ants, since the pageant to select
in scholarships were given out to
be used for further educational
As Miss Atlantic City, Jean gave
a short speech each night, posed
for pictures and had intereviews
and appointments during her free
time. Contestants had to be ac-
companied by a chaperon at all
"Miss Slaughter felt it her re-
sponsibility to see that the girls
were well cared for and that the
pageant was kept on a high plane,"
Wrote Welcome Notes
"I wrote all the contestants a
welcome note and received many
warm replies," said Jean. Although
she gave many appearances in her
own community she spent most of
her summer "anticipating" the
huge six day spectacle.
Of course the pageant hostess
met the new and old Queens.
Of Marilyn Van Derbur, Miss
America 1957, Jean says, "She's
very poised and intelligent. The
way she handled the questions
showed her personality, confid-
ence and her sincerity."
Of last year's winner, Marian
McKnight, "very, very gracious,
sweet and sincere., She told me
that she was just a little girl with
a big break."
This year for the first time
finalists were allowed to remain
on stage and hear the answers of
the other women. Said Jean:
"Many people felt it wasn't en-
tirely fair. But because of time
problems on television it couldn't
have been otherwise."
Jean praised emcee Bert Parks.
"He really helped the girls to feel
at home and very relaxed while
Will she enter again? "My luck
was with me once, I'm going to
quit while the going's good,"
laughed Jean. "It was - wonderful
experience but once was enough."
"As for my future, if I find I
have the talent, it will be radio
or T.V.-if not, there's alway the
security of a teacher's certificate."

MISS ATLANTIC CITY:.. ,
Hostess to the nations most
America's reigning queen is held

MAKE YOURSELF KNOWN to each of your instructors. If you do not fully
understand an assignment, don't hesitate to ask questions so that it will be clear to
you. Do more than the minimum in the preparation of each assignment. The more
you put into the study of any subject, the more your interest will grow, and the
greater your interest the easier the preparation. Be ready and willing to contribute
to the class discussion, but do not monopolize more than your share of the' time.
Each of your instructors has scheduled office hours. This is an opportunity
given you for personal discussions with them. Take advantage of it and make it
known to them that you appreciate the privilege of meeting them in a more infor.
mal way than is possible in the classroom. This should be done during the first
few weeks. If you will show a genuine interest early in the semester, the instructor
will respond to that interest.
Sharpen your mental tools and then expect the most out of college.
