Couriering this area this week in 1971 — 50 years ago:

“I’m so happy and so surprised. I can’t believe it,” said Miss Darlene Weideman, the new Miss Lewsiville for 1971. The brown-eyed, 5-foot-6 junior at Appalachian State was the judges’ choice from among contestants in the sixth Annual Miss Lewisville Pageant sponsored by the Lewisville Jaycees and Civic Club in a contest held in the Lewisville Elementary School auditorium. She received a $100 savings bond, a dozen red roses, a tiara and a trophy.

Mike Culbreat and Wiley Dobey, both of Clemmons, spent the week of spring break from their studies at Duke University and Wake Forest Seminary touring and relaxing in New Orleans. They stayed in the French Quarter, reported a “great time,” and called one of the highlights of the trip as seeing an exhibition game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.

Congratulations to hard-working Miss Carolyn Furches. A teacher and lobbyist for the N.C Association for Classroom Teachers, her efficacy at both jobs has drawn public acclaim. Every Monday night, she meets with members of the General Assembly to speak for the cause of education. She is the daughter of Mrs. Henry Furches of Clemmons Road. Mrs. Furches is also a teacher, teaching now at Clemmons Elementary School.

The Titan baseball team reinforced their first place position in Group II Conference standing again last week and again it was due to some outstanding pitching on the part of Tim Huff.  West nailed Atkins 3-0. Huff came through with his second shutout of the season allowing the Camels, to whom the Titans lost their first and only game of the season, only one hit.

The Rev. Robert V. Martin assisted with the pancake supper sponsored by members of the Exchange Club of Greater Winston-Salem and held at Holsum Bakery on Marshall Street. Among those attending the supper were Rev. and Mrs. S.B. Moss, Miss Ruth Anne Moss and Mrs. Robert Martin, all of Shallowford Road.

The weather was sunny and warm Saturday morning, just perfect, as more than 100 youngsters converged from Clemmons Elementary School for the annual event — an Easter egg hunt.  Some youths accompanied by their parents and others on their own carrying their empty Easter baskets set out on a journey around the schoolyard to see who could find the 17 dozen eggs hidden by the Clemmons Jaycees. Winning Easter baskets for finding the most eggs were Annette Livengood and Mark Johnson.

Ralph Kim Underwood of Clemmons has been awarded a James M. Johnston Scholarship for undergraduate study at the University of North Carolina here. Underwood is the son of the Rev. and Mrs. Ralph Lindley Underwood of Clemmons. First in his class at West Forsyth High School, Underwood is a member of the National Honor Society, secretary of the Key Club, and feature editor of the school newspaper.
