But before leaving Atlantic City and. the scene of her triumph Sunday, the auburn-haired beauty from Sandusky, Ohio, performed the last official act required of all the Miss America contestants.

"f guess it'* all right to iay it -- I weighed 150 pounds." The new Miss America related that at that point in her life she stopped having lunch, hardly ever ate breakfast and watched her ivening meals. Even today, she said, she must be careful of her diet. Jackie looked fresh and bright eyed as she met the press after only four hours sleep. Crowned Miss America 1963 shortly before midnight Saturday by the 1962 queen. Maria Beale Fletcher of Asbeville, N.C., Jack- ie didn't get back to her room until several hours later. After her year as Mis* America, Jackie said she intends to complete her education at Northwestern. She hope* eventually to become an actress.

What American dish surprises the British most? "Drunkard's · soap, I think," Mrs. Donald said. This is a fascinating though somewhat bewildering brew of angel's food cake, bourbon whisky, rum, sugar and cinnamon. "They eye it very suspiciously at first," she said, "but after they try it, most of them love it Anyhow, we never have any left over." The usual British comment is: "You Americans.!" She accepts that as a compli ment. Mrs. Donald is also having sue cess with pancakes and whipped butter phis syrup. The objective of her operatic] is to get British buyers, distribu tors, government officials anc people in the food business to sample as many American dishes as possible. She has over 1,000 American Garden Clubs products to work with. "Of course, I have to do a lo of the cooking myself, for you lan't expect foreign cooks to dc American foods in a week," she observed. Mrs. Donald is a volunteer worker. She receives no pay -only expenses. "My children are growing up,' she said, "my husband (a Wash ngton doctor) is busy. My daugh er will be driving soon. I founc myself a sort of left-over chauf- eur, so I decided to get back into the business again. "This is a nice way to do it. And you get to see London, too." Ph. SW 3-1717 427 Main St. saplings.
