High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - June 29, 1972, High Point, North Carolina Barely Twenty by Arthur Utley Iii last weeks miss North Carolina pageant brought to a close another year of local Beauty shows which tried to select a a the girl who would bring Honor to her City or county by becoming miss North Carolina. Now our Lovely Winner gets to try and become the number one Chick in these United states and All of us get to watch it on to. Miss North Carolina pageants make me feel kind of old. When i was a Little Guy i used to wish i could Date one of them. Now they Are freshmen in College and in a older than they Are. Beauty pageants Are the biggest waste of time i can think of. Even dirty old men done to like the pageants because the contestants can to even Wear two piece bathing suits. Who does the Beauty pageant Benefit do girls really have to participate in them to boost their ego photographers get an excellent Chance to snap Many shots of the girls posed of course and Send the pictures Back to the girls Hometown newspaper. All week preceding the pageant girls Are judged on the Way they look in bathing suits that accentuate nothing evening gowns and Talent. During that time each contestant becomes adept at the Beauty pageant walk and smile. The walk consists of shuffling along with stiff legs a straight Back and a head that is held at a 90-degree Angle to the rest of her body her Chin is Over her shoulder instead of her Abdomen. That is important though because the profile is the basis for judging. Smiling for a Beauty pageant consists of cutting a Maclean a toothpaste and out of a Magazine and pasting it Over her Mouth. Judges Are of extreme importance since they get the Job of selecting the Queen. A your judges tonight ladies and gentlemen a cries the announcer a Are or. J. Broad Stern who has been a pageant judge for the last 50 years or. Pettigrew Biggs who has judged in Many International pageants and or. Joe de who has judged in local Talent shows. A among the ladies judging Are mrs. Gladys Firkins. Mrs. Lena Ginster and mrs. Jojo a majority of the time the judges Are Over 45 years old. Why do they get to choose which girl is the Best one to be miss North Carolina Talent Competition is the most Boring of the evening. Many of the girls struggled to get one special Talent together for the pageant while others have been taking dancing or music for years and Haven to got a thing to show for it. The girls always dance or sing favorite dances being the Ballet or the flamenco. Unfortunately the occasion is rare that a girl does a creditable Job miss North Carolina for 1972 did a stunning Ballet. Songs always come from a Broadway musical. I suggest that a girl who has musical Talent in guitar or piano work up a routine where she can do some Rock song like a a jumping Jack she wont win. However because the judges will be offended. All Talent revolves around the classical. Then comes the crucial moment. The five finalists have been chosen and it is time for the interview. Contestant number one comes to the microphone and the announcer says a a we re having fun Here in Charlotte Arentt the contestant responds with a we sure maybe they ought to hold a is. North Carolina pageant so one of the girls could answer a hell no in a doing this just to show off my the questions that the judges ask Are totally inane Are you in favor of women a lib. What question would you ask president Nixon or what woman would you like to pattern yourself after the girls smile sweetly Ponder a moment then answer like a Veteran politician nothing. When miss North Carolina is finally crowned she starts crying and then she is mobbed and attacked by All those girls who lost. They Are jealous As hell but they drench miss North Carolinas dress with tears just the same. I wonder if miss . Realizes that she has to give up drinking smoking and wearing bathing suits in Public for a year unfortunately wait until next year will never come for the losers but it will for the building furniture City Council is getting irritated Over badgering by Archdale state by Robert Marks Enterprise staff writer an irritated High Point City Council set Forth its own record today about the matter of a water Supply for Archdale.

It is not Council authorized the mayor to write a letter to the state Clearinghouse in Raleigh setting Forth High Points position on the question of supplying water to Archdale. It was a letter from Randolph Hendricks planning coordinator with the state Clearinghouse to Archdale mayor Henry j. York or. Which set off the discussion at a Brief meeting of Council today. The letter reviewed the role of the Clearinghouse in the situation and suggested Archdale might apply for a Federal Grant toward financing its water and sewer needs. Hendricks also advised that Archdale might turn t o Greensboro Thomasville or Davidson county for its water Supply.

Of High tuesday night the Archdale City Council decided to approach Greensboro Thomasville and Davidson county about supplying water to the Randolph county Community. Fred Swartzberg who is chairman of the Public utilities committee for City Council said today he took exception in particular to two phrases in the letter from Hendricks. One referred to a the history of unsuccessful efforts to arrive at an agreement with the City of High Point.
