^Miss Carroll' Will Challenge Big Field of Ptilchritude- Rita Morrissey to Vie for State Beauty Title at Clear Lake Saturday, Sunday A soft-spoken, blue • eyed Irih girl whose, sun-tanned features match the warm glow of a sparkling personality, resolutely faces tho toughest challenge of her 21 years this wqekend. She is Rita Morrissey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Morrissey of 227 South East Street, Carroll, who will represent this community in the Miss Iowa beau­ ty contest at Clear Lake on Saturday and Sunday. • "I didn't dream I'd win the Carroll contest," she exclaim- , ed modestly. . : "If I had. I probably wouldn't have entered," she said. the Carroll entry who will compete with 19 other beauties for the right to represent, Iowa 1" the Miss America contest at Atlantic City. New. Jersey, is much more intent upon a teaching career than in anything pertaining to beauty contests. Miss Morrissey calmly surveys the publicity attendant upon the parading of charms and personality at Clear Lake as something that could be a pleasant ordeal. "I think it will be fun. but I kind of dread the spotlights," the Carroll entrant said. Carroll "supporters can rest assured they will be well represented when the 5* 4 V brown-haired beauty vies for the state crown. Her measurements are 33'/a-24-35 and her weight is 114 pounds. Serious Outlook Miss Morrissey's serious- minded outlook and inherent love of working with children gives her the clean-cut appearance and attributes of the "outdoor girl." "I love sports such as swimming, basketball, volleyball and hiking," she said.' Miss Carroll leans toward semi-classics in music and doesn't particularly appreciate "rock and roll" music. She enjoys dancing but; isn't especially fond of it in preference to sports. "I giiess I'm just more of the outdoor type," she confessed with a wry smile. "I think traveling is my biggest wish and I'd like to see more of this wonderful country before journey abroad," she related. To Teach in Fall But it's the subject of children and teaching that brings a warm glow to her countenance. A graduate of St. Angela Academy in 1953 and Viterbo College in LaCrosse, Wis., in 1957, she has secured a fourth grade teaching position in North Chicago, 111., and will begin her teaching career this fall. This summer she has been manager of the American Legion Swimming Pool here and feels right at home with the many youngsters who throng to the crystal-clear water on sultry days. "As fourth child in a family of 13, I feel right at home with children," she said. For the talent segment of Tim** H»r«ld, Carroll, Iowa Wtdiwtday, July 24, 1957 the Carroll County contest, Miss Morrissey gave a speech ' on children and books. "I feel there should be variety in reading to satisfy the diversification of interests of children at the intermediate level. They require motivation from parents and teachers to stimulate these interests and that will result in more reading," she said. Miss Morrissey is a firm believer in the contention that children can satisfy their intellectual curiosity from the written word and that they encouraged to do so rather than, rely entirely on the visual aid of television, comic books and illustrations. "Visual education is fine as a teaching aid, but I don't feel it should be used as a crutch on which to lean at the expense of getting learning from words," she said. To Seek Master's The thirst for knowledge, about which she feels so strongly, spurs her own ambitions to continue her • formal education and secure a master's degree in education. LIFE-SAVER ... . should a* emergency arise and a water-logged/'swimmer '.need assistance* That's a role for which Miss Morrissey must be prepared at al times. It's part of ner duties as manager of the pool'and as * senior life-saver among ihf pool attendants. She is shown here.
