Photograph article dated August 26, 1961 partially reads, "Not every family includes an ex-Miss America, but almost anyone can spend the long Labor Day weekend just like a San Fernando Valley family that does. The Frank Aletters (she's Lee Meriwether, Miss America 1955; he's 'Buddy' of the 'Bringing Up Buddy' CBS television series) plan to spend the holiday at their new Granada Hills home entertaining informally, relaxing by the new pool which they hope can be complete and filled by then, showing home movies and busying themselves with the multitude of do-it-yourself chores that occupy any family that has only been in its new home for two months." Lee Meriwether holds 14-month-old daughter, Kyle, as they watch Frank Aletter working on family pool.
