Vintage Beauty Contest Newspaper clippings from 1928 and 1978, Miss Pocatello Idaho, Bathing Beauties Swimsuits

ERA: True vintage item from 1928 and 1978
Here are 3 newspaper clipping that were in with a collection of antique photos that I bought.
The large page is from the August 25th 1928 edition of The Pocatello Tribune covering the Miss Pocatello beauty pageant. Miss Blanche Rowley was the winner as noted in the single paragraph that goes with the large photo.
Then there are 2 identical news clippings from the August 16th 1978 edition of the Idaho State Journal. This is the 50th anniversary of the competition that Blanche won. Turns out that she was married when she won in 1928, there was no rule against marries women entering, but 1928 was the last time they were allowed.
Doing some research online, Blanche was born in 1909. Her first husband was named Rowley and her second husband was Stauffer. She passed in 1988.
CONDITION: The 3 pages are in very good condition. All are aged, the 1928 page has some tears around the edges. The photo is clearer in the newer clippings.
