MISS SEMIFINALIST POCATELLO IDAHO SUNDAY JANUARY 25, 1976 IDAHO STATE JOURNAL-SECTION C PAGE 5 City Entrant Says Close Feeling Made Victory Unimportant i'he 32 contestants for Idaho Junior Miss became so close ciuririg the week of pageant activities that "we didn't core who won," said Pocatello's Joni Adamson, who was among the eight semifinalists (or the 1976 title. "This pageant was the neatest experience I've ever haii." Said Miss Adamson, Pocatello High School senior and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mel Adamson, 620 W. Pine. Miss Adamson said most of the time in the pageant city ol Moscow was spent in rehearsals, which included learning the stage routines to be performed. The pageant was in a Bicentennial theme, she continued. In the poise and appearance routine, the contestants wore 1776 dresses and carried lace handkerchiefs. In the physical fitness routine they had three-cornered hats and carried guns. The Junior Miss hopefuls were divided into groups ac- cording to their heights, Miss Adamson continued. "I was in the red group." she said, "a'ld we were the best group." Describing the red group, she explained, "'Spirit' was our motto, and we had a lot of it. In fact, we were the only group that had a motto." Miss Adamson, who was sponsored by the PHS Quill and Scroll and Thespians, said she received flowers from PHS, the Indianettes, friends, parents and. the LDS Seminarv Executive Council. She also was sent letters by friends and said these just "made her day." The' Pocatc-llo Junior' Miss found the people in Moscow- very friendly. In fact, they practically fight over which families will host the contestants, she explained. Miss Adamson stayed with Mr. and Mrs. Randall Byers, whom she described a? "excellent hosts." "My host father was a big game hunter, and we ate bear meat a lot," she added. She also -vas assigned her own chauffeur, whom she said was a "great guy who would have done anything for me." Miss Adamson said the Junior Miss hopefuls all worked hard but "had fun and learned to love each other while doing it." If she had any criticism of the experience, it was the fact that Pocatello was the second largest city in the state to send a contestant, yet she was the only- one not to be given a scholarship by the city. No 9 76 Junior Miss Event Unless New Sponsor Found The Junior Miss pageant, revived just two years ago after an eleven-year absence from the Pocatello scene, may be dropped again for lack of a sponsoring organization. At least, Mrs. Beryl Taylor, Pocatello High School journalism teacher, said Quill and Scroll and Thespians do not intend to sponsor it this year. Mrs. Taylor said the motivation for the student groups to sponsor the pageant was an opportunity to raise money for special journalism and drama trips. The proceeds have not matched the*work that the pageant requires, according to Mrs. Taylor. However, the main reason for giving up the pageant, she continued, is the fact that her journalism siuuents are mamiy boys this year, and they aren't interested in staging the pageant. Mrs. Taylor pointed out that in spite of the decision she still feels the pageant to find the ideal high schooler is a great activity for girls. The first winner sent by the students, Ann Sharp became Idaho Junior Miss, and this year's entrant, Joni Adamson, was one of eight semifinalists among 32 entrants. Mrs. Taylor said there is still hope the pageant won't be eliminated from the Pocatello scene. Miss Adamson is president of the PHS Girls' Council and is interested in having that group take over the sponsorship.

Lamaze Classes Slated I "It's only natural for expectant parents to look forward Jo the birth of a baby with ex- jpitement--and some anxiety," §aid Barbara A. Steele as she gets ready to offer a new series of Lamaze Prepared Childbirth classes in February and March. "Ms. .Steele, who began the classes a little more than a year ago, has given training to residents not only of Pocatello but also of Blackfoot, Aberdeen, American Falls and Grace. Seven Lamaze instructors are presenting the training in several new time periods, including evenings, Saturday mornings and Tues'day afternoons. What is the Lamaze method? Ms. Steele said it prepares an expectant couple emotionally, intellectually, psychologically and physically for the childbirth experience. Together both parents may actively bring their baby into the world with the guidance and support of an obstetrical team. If you would like information on the Lamaze method and the training classes, call Ms. Steele at 233-7091. COMFORT FROM...
