Q: Any tips for viewing at home or live? I haven't been for years. I watch on TV now, but I would urge anyone with an interest in Americana to go at least once to Boardwalk Hall and see it live. You have 50 state delegations screaming their lungs out and there is the hum and buzz in the hall that is just electric.

Everybody won. Lou Off had been late to sign up for his contestant — by the time he and a friend arrived at pageant headquarters only two girls were left: Miss New Orleans and Miss Bertrand Island, NJ. Ever gallant, Lou let his pal pick first; predictably, the friend opted for whom he hoped would prove to be a saucy Southern belle. That left Lou with Bette, the teenage Shirley Temple look-alike who still seemed startled to be there in the first place.
As Bette and Lou spent time together during the week, their fledgling romance appeared to be largely one-sided: Bette, moony and immature, seemed thunderstruck by her charming date, while Lou viewed the whole thing as more of a lark even if his daily orchids indicated otherwise. People were beginning to wonder if she might be able to take the crown and sash. Everyone, that is, except Bette. A betting man, Lou knew better. The last thing in the world I want is publicity.
The conversation veered elsewhere. But the threat hung over the lovesick Bette Cooper like a sword. Defying the predictions of almost everyone, Bette Cooper, the kewpie doll waif from New Jersey, bested Southern heavyweights Miss Texas and Miss North Carolina in the final round of three to earn the crown and the title of Miss America True to his word, Lou broke it off that very evening, bolting from the coronation ball and vanishing into the night. It was Bette, sobbing, telling him he had to come.
He had to. She insisted she did not want the title after all.
Years later, in a rare comment about the entire affair, Bette insisted it was her parents, more than she, who wanted her to abdicate her title; Lou told me he remembered Bette wanted out. Lou called two friends, bundled Bette up, and, as the sun was just beginning to rise, escorted the new Miss America down the fire escape of the hotel and into his car, where they would eventually drive to his motorboat moored some two miles away. It was a bright and beautiful Sunday in Atlantic City, and Lenora Slaughter, the iron butterfly who had come up from Florida two years earlier to whip the pageant into professional shape, was making sure everything was in order on the famous Steel Pier: a red velvet throne had been obtained, and there were assorted dignitaries, reporters and runners-up milling about, waiting for the appearance of the new Miss America.
Then the whispers started.
