you won't want to leave this hart in san francisco
College sophomore Holly Joan Hart, an Oakland policeman's daughter, wows student bodies wherever she goes.
Q:You're studying education. Why not be a cop like dad?
A: Too stressful. My dad has been shot at. He once had to shoot a pit bull that clamped on to his leg. Teaching school is safer. I want to teach first grade - to mold uncorrupted lives.
Q: And if the kids' fathers recognize you from Playboy?
A:This is a liberal city. I'm delighted to be Miss April. I want to prove multiethnicity can be beautiful.
Q:You're Puerto Rican-French-Irish-Colombian-African American?
A:Right. I'm even more multi than Tiger Woods. America is too obsessed with race. I'm proud to be "all of the above." I'm also proud of surviving a strict Jesuit prep school where the girls had to wear long skirts. Look - no more uniform!
