Tin.· Miss Columbus County Pageant was postponed until May 10 by a unanimous vote of the Tabor City Jaycees Tuesday night. "The annual pageant which was scheduled to be held this Friday, April 12, was postpon ed for several reasons — the '»'•k of interest and participa tion on the part of some of the Jaycee membership, a conflict in the April date of the pag eant and the date of other [unctions scheduled to be held in the school auditorium, and the lack of advertising and ad vance ticket sales which were needed to cover the cost of the pageant estimated at. $1200." Clifford Gore, Jaycce president, said. Another reason given for the postponement was the lack of entries from prospective contestants. A lit w entry deadline of April 25 was set, and Robert Dale Inman, entries chairman, urged that all contestants get their applications in early. He said that contestants who had already applied would be noti fied of the change of dates. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to the new Miss Co lumbus County with a $250 scholarship going to the run ner-up.
