ANDREW LEWIS HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY SALEM, VIRGINIA ANDREW LEWIS MIDDLE SCHOOL Salem, Virginia PRESENTED TO ANDREW LEWIS HIGH SCHOOL BY the estate of MISS ANNIE McCONKEY ANDREW LEWIS HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY SALEM VIRGINIA Ex Libris , ’ arT Shorten Uftouer ' " J " ' ' " " " " ' " r School Days No happier days in one ' s life will he know Than his school days so dear and so free; No matter how far from his home may he go, His school days are happier, he ' ll see. He may find many riches, and wealth, and great fame, Or a loved one to him very dear; He may circle the globe and return to the same Old home town where his friends are so near. A happiness he ' ll find, but it will not compare With the fun and the frolic and glee That in school he enjoys, when he has not a care But a few studies; then he is free! Many times will he wish when from school he departs He were back in that lively old place Where he toiled so and struggled with lessons and charts, But he does love it not in these days. And when it is over and gone fore ' er more, He will look back and then will he find That his happiest days have gone on before In the schoolhouse that he left behind. —Mary Frances Price THE PIONEER OF 1937 PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF ANDREW LEWIS HIGH SCHOOL SALEM, VIRGINIA Andrew Lewis Library T HE Andrew Lewis Library is an attractive room, carefully arranged in furnish¬ ings, bright with sunlight, and warm with the friendship of persons and books. Growing plants and flowers, seasonal posters, and book displays add to the beauty of the room. Between the entrance doors, neatly placed on the shelves, are the books pertaining to studies and general and specific reference works. Beneath the great windows, back of the charging desk, are the books of biography and fiction, which the students enjoy reading. One particularly notices the splendid behavior of the persons who study and read in the library. This, of course, makes any library attractive. A spirit of quiet, courtesy, and cooperation generally prevails. The students are trusted to uphold the library standards, and they show that they appreciate the trust. Truly, the Andrew Lewis Library is most appealing and worthy of pride. —Dorothy Smith i - ! " ' 1 ;c f (s ,.rn. D uring this school year of 1936-37, some eleven hundred students have gone in and out of Andrew Lewis High School daily. As you have followed your various courses in science, music, shorthand, language, etc., as you have participated in the activi¬ ties of your choice, we be¬ lieve that, to each of you, life here has been a happy experience, a glorious ad¬ venture. Indeed, how could it be otherwise? The very atmosphere of the place seems to be filled with joy, the joy which comes from wholesome, right living. There is a pervading influence which we sometimes refer to as the “spirit of Andrew Lewis,” which all who enter seem to imbibe. The beautiful building, situated in historic Salem in the lovely valley of the Roanoke, is surrounded by towering mountain peaks in the distance. An administration considers carefully the present-day needs of young people. Faithful teachers, friendships and high moral standards— these and many other things contribute to this happy condition. It has been the aim of your Staff, in producing this 1937 Pioneer, to perpetuate in the mind of each of you an everlasting memory of your school life. We feel that a theme more fascinating to you could not be found, though we searched the annals of history. It is our hope that as you pause again and again, somewhere along the Road of Life, to turn these pages, that you may return to whatever task may be yours, inspired by having relived the happy days at Andrew Lewis. Foreword £) o Dedication N OT because he is one of the out¬ standing members of our faculty; not because he has always taken a keen interest in the activities of our school; not because he has taught us to “know what we know”; not be¬ cause he exemplifies those things that are finest in character—although all these traits have endeared him to us— but because he has proved himself to be one of the students’ best friends, we, the Class of 1937, proudly dedicate this volume of The Pioneer to Mr. J. H. Snapp Drawn by June Hoover SO ( t A Message From Our Principal T HE preparation of the Annual has required considerable time and expense as well as painstaking effort. Believing that this expenditure is justified because the Annual incorporates material to perpetuate worthy memories of high school days, because its publication is productive of an esprit de corps in the student body, and because its preparation has given valuable training to the students responsible for its composition, I heartily congratulate the Staff and Faculty Advisers upon their accomplishment of the Pioneer of 1936-37. If in years to come this little book shall call back happy days, pleasant memories, and fine friendships, it will have served its purpose and the Staff will not have labored in vain.

Moorefield History English, History Shorthand, Typewriting, Bookkeeping Mr. Roland E. Cook T HE Pioneer Staff wishes to dedicate this page as an ex¬ pression of appreciation to Mr. Roland E. Cook, Superintendent of Roanoke County Schools. Andrew Lewis High School is proud of the distinction which he has attained in educational affairs. He was elected president of The Virginia Education Association for a term of two years at the Annual Convention in Richmond in Novem¬ ber. Commenting on his election, The Virginia Journal of Education designates him as “one of the outstanding superintendents of the State.” We are glad that Mr. Cook’s capacity for fine leadership is recognized abroad as well as at home. He has also served as vice president of District M for two terms. Having received his early education as well as having taught in the schools of the county, Mr. Cook has ever had the interests of the boys and girls of Salem and Roanoke County close to his heart, during the thirty years of his superintendency. A man, extremely modest as to his own merits, exceedingly human, yet resolute and vigorous when the occasion demands, he is greatly admired by those who know him. Both student and teacher feel free to approach him with their problems because they find in him sympathetic under¬ standing. Mr. Cook is indeed worthy of admiration. Classes Sponsored by Girl Reserves THE PIONEER Seniors ANOTHER June, and Seniors, the 1937 Class, going forth from -7 A Andrew Lewis. Like the pieces of a puzzle we have not yet found the places which we are to fill in Life. We are not quite smoothed to the beauty of form for portraying the future of our country in time and deeds. This, for us, is a step forward into a world full of complex situations that require infinite knowledge, enlightenment, and wisdom. Our school life has given us, to some extent, all these. Experience will supply the finishing touches. Those who watch expect us to follow the gleam. Other classes which have gone before challenge us. Lor us—they need have no fear. The time will come when we shall grasp the torch of progress flung into our hands. May we hold it high and may we accomplish! —Margaret Trent 14 oj 193 7 Senior Class Officers Jon Dasu Longaker.

President Elmer Shaver. Vice President Gibson Maxwell. Secretary J. Willard Brubaker. Treasurer Junior Sentiments I N OUR new surroundings, three years ago, as Freshmen, we felt very insignifi¬ cant, but the congeniality of the teachers and pupils soon made us feel that we were really a part of the school. The road ahead looked long and hard, but through persistence on our part and untiring effort on the part of our teachers the year’s work was finished. Each year the work is more advanced and our success is measured by the zeal which we put into the task. We are fortunate to live in a period in which it is recognized that high grades are not the only indication of one’s education. It is very pleasant to be able to put up a perfect examination paper and receive a high mark, but a question of vastly more importance is—Do we have the proper appreciation of the subject? As someone has said, “The best reward is the sense of worthy achievement.” There is another important side to our school life, in addition to that of scholastic standing. We will be remembered by our schoolmates and teachers as they know us in school. If they know us to be rude, thoughtless, discourteous, or dishonest, impressions like these are not soon forgotten. If we are kind, thought¬ ful, courteous, and honorable, just so we shall be remembered. People may forgive us for these things, but they cannot forget them. So let us, as Seniors, apply ourselves more earnestly to our work; let us, in the words of Tennyson, “strive, seek, find, not yield”; but let us also keep in our hearts the prayer, “So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” If we endeavor to cultivate attributes like these, surely our Alma Mater will be proud of us when we go out as Seniors of ’38, for such ideals belong to the traditions which have been handed down from the early days of Salem High School. It is these which distinguish our beloved Andrew Lewis High School today. 4 36 U June Hoover of 19 3 7 Juniors Adams, Helen Agee, William Akers, Vera Akers, James All, Elsie Alvarado, Alfred Amos, Virginia Andrews, Ai.dine Atkinson, Mildred Baker, Terrence Bavse, Justin Beck, Marion Beckner, Oneda Black, Wanda Blackard, Margaret Blackburn, Evelyn Bliss, Mary Jane Bowman, Lillian Bradley, Irene Brown, James Brubaker, J.

Reporter I N June, 1936, we were rewarded for our long and tedious work in the grades by promotion to the Andrew Lewis High School. We put away our childish ways. Some of the girls put on silk stockings and the boys began to slick their hair back and make eyes at the girls. When the school door was opened for us, at last, that bright September morning, our joys were unbounded. We hadn’t been in school long, when we realized to our astonishment that we, the freshmen, were only little ducks in a big pond. Although we were timid and undecided how to act at first, we fell beautifully into the real school spirit. At the football games, the freshmen’s immature voices could be heard above all the others. When we yell we yell. After the statement was made in the Andrew Lewis News that the freshmen behaved much better in assembly than the upper classmen, our noses certainly became more visible to the ceiling. To Mrs. James we owe many thanks for her work in planning entertainments for us in assembly. During the past year a Literary Club, a Freshman Hi-Y, and a Latin Club for the Freshmen have been organized. We have had much fun and we certainly hope that our Sophomore, Junior and Senior years will be as successful and happy as this Freshman year. 43 Betty Peters Freshman Roll Agee, Helena Akers, Lyle Aliff, Ruby Altizer, Ruth Ames, Edith Amos, Herman Anderson, Billy Apperson, Harvey Atkins, Bernice Austin, Earl Ayers, Madeline Bailey, Madeline Baker, Howard Barger, Bob Barnett, Earl Barne tt, Howard Bayne, Henry B eason, Billy Benois, Mildred Black, Rachel Blackburn, Eunice Bliss, Verne Bohon,James Boone, Warren Boothe, Rosalie Bowling, Cephas Bowman, Edward Bowman, Rufus Bradshaw, William Brand, Cabell Brogan, Robert Brooks, Walter Broughman, Leonard Browne, Helen Brown, Jack Brown, Mary Jane Broyles, Oretha Brubaker, Edward Brugh, Frances Bryant, Millard Bunting, Myra Burnop, Mary Byrd, Dalton Byrd, Nadine Campbell, Gloria Campbell, Harold Campbell, Nadine Carlton, Bob Carneal, Margaret Carrol, Addie Carrol, Billy Carrol, Edith Carrol, Wallace Carter, Catherine Carter, Clarence Casey, Ci.eo Casey, Montague Cecil, Harold Chumbley, Lorraine Cochran, Ann Coffey, Richard Collins, Mossie Cook, Paul Corbin, Wyatt Cornett, Betty Cornwell, Jessie Ruth Craig, Genevieve Crawford, Sanora Crotts, Lloyd William Crouch, Billy Cunningham, Billy Cunningham, Hettie Cyphers, Rural Dame, Jack Dangerfield, Frances Darst, Mary Ellen Davis, Ann Davis, Margaret Deaton, Beulah Dennis, Ann Derrick, John Deyerle, Elmer Dickerson, Elizabeth Dickerson, Jeanette Downs, William Drain, Emory Duncan, Dorothy Dunlop, Joscelyn Dutlon, Bessie Eanes, Avery Eller, Katherine Ellis, A.

Although this innova¬ tion has required more diligent leadership, the advisers feel that it has not only helped to make our annual more thoroughly representative of the entire school but has also made the publishing of The Pioneer a more worthwhile school activity in that valuable training and experience has been proffered to more individuals in the four classes. In an attempt to keep our Memory Book from becoming stereo¬ typed, some change has been made in lay-out and typography. Several new features were also initiated in order to furnish more interesting material for both students and faculty. Ten representatives of the annual attended the Southern Inter¬ scholastic Press Convention in Lexington, November 20th and 21st. This was one of the most enjoyable activities of the year. Many new ideas were brought back from Mr. Lubersky’s conferences. Alma Darden. Editor-in-Chief Lucille Hood. A ctivities Editor Carroll Wood. Photograph Editor John Bernard.

Successive editors-in-chief since then have been Elmore Hood and Walter Gottschalk, joint editors for 1933- 34; Opal Craun, editor for 1934-35; John Thornton, editor for 1935-36; and Albert Snapp, the present editor. Previous to the year 1933, Salem High School had published from time to time a newspaper known as The Oracle. Since 1933, the year Andrew Lewis was opened to students, through the courtesy of Mr. J. H. Thornton, publisher of the Salem Times-Register, the High School News has had a page in the Salem paper. During the present year the publication of the newspaper has been carried on as an extra curricular project in school journalism.

The romantic drama, written by Priscilla Wayne and Wayne Sprague, carries throughout its pages a beautiful theme—a charming story which begins with a prologue in the Revolutionary period, runs excitingly through three acts in the present time, and—with the final curtain—leaves the audience a delightful outlook on the future and something to re¬ member in the past. Although the roles are more difficult than any yet attempted, they will be well interpreted, and well portrayed by a talented group. This year marks the fifth anniversary in the history of the senior play at Andrew Lewis— opening with ‘‘The Importance of Being Earnest” in the spring of 1932, followed by ‘‘A Prince There Was,” ‘‘Wedding Bells,” and “ Officer 666.” The casts of each of these played to capacity crowds, their work being highly acclaimed. In December of 1935 the custom of presenting a play at Chris tmas time was inaugurated with the production of Charles Dickens’ ‘‘Christmas Carol.” In 1936 a beautiful interpretation of “Christopher’s Candle” was given by Billy Robertson, Preston Graves, Helen Chewning, Lucille Hood, Aminee Jones, Rebecca Yeatts, Hugh Gresham and Jane Haider. On each occasion the students responded well to a silver offering as a Christmas gift to the school. The dramatic work is under the direction of Emily Lorraine Raynor. of 193 7 Student Council SENIOR REPRESENTATIVES Bernard, John Grubb, Hazel Longaker, Jon Maxwell, Caroline Pierpont, Nancy Trent, Margaret JUNIOR REPRESENTATIVES Atkinson, Mildred McCauley, Mary Virginia Hall, James Turner, Betty Maxwell, Jean SOPHOMORE REPRESENTATIVES Body, Pauline Bryant, Junior Garner, Dorothy Hoover, Mary Patton, Mary Robinson, Audrey Spradlin, Frances Wilbourne, Elizabeth FRESHMAN REPRESENTATIVES Brand, Cabell Bunting, Myra Fisher, Richard Gore, Lois Jamison, John Jones, James Parks, Nelson Saul, Robert Showalter, Robert West, Emma Lyle -C{ 49 N THE PIONEER Girl Reserves OFFICERS Margaret Trent .

Jack is famous in the state for his smashing defensive work. Co-Captain James Johnson— Tackle Co-Captain Johnson captioned his three years of sterling varsity football with his fine performance in the Danville game. Co-Captain Charlie Andrews— Half Back Co-Captain “Burks” was the rubber-legged and flashy broken-field runner of the 1936 Wolverines. Time after time he emerged from a line play to show his heels to would-be tacklers. His shoes will be hard to fill next season. Dan Hurdle— Center Although he weighed only 135 pounds, Dan capably held down the pivot position. Much is expected from this boy next year. Leslie Keith— End Playing at either end or tackle, “Les” brought joy to the coaches and fans alike with his fine brand of offensive and defensive ball. Preston Graves— Guard “Bucket,” who was the youngest player on the Wolverine eleven, proved to be a power in the front line of attack with his ferocious tackling and blocking. Elmer Shaver— Tackle Untrue to his nickname, “Sleepy” proved to be the spirit of the team. By nagging words and self-example he instilled the fire that staved off defeat and brought victory. Warren Sowder— Half Back Because he received much valuable experience this year as a reserve back, Warren is expected to be a key man in the 1937 backfield. Captain-Elected Paul McGhee— End In recognition of his ability as a leader and as a player, “Mack” was ele cted Captain of the 1937 Wolverines. He is an all-around athlete, but an exceptional football player, and is expected to be an excellent field marshall. Bruce Whitlock— Half Back “Hook” was an excellent blocking back and a tough customer for the opposing teams. He will be back next year to play the same brand of hard but clean football. Francis West— End “Sheep,” playing at a terminal position, materially increased the Wolverine chance of victory by snagging many of Stone’s bullet passes and because he was equally adept at breaking up the opponent’s plays, he will be sorely missed next year. Fred Cormell— Guard Fred, who alternated with Lee as a guard, proved to be a stonewall on defense. He played good, steady ball in every game and he was the line star of the Jefferson game. Eldridge Lee— Guard The running guard position was held down by one of the fastest and most accurate blockers ever to play for Salem High. Eldridge is one of the reasons why Coach Denton breaks into a smile when approached about the “thirty-seven eleven.” •C{ 66 p- Cl •I CENJON Coach 2 fS q GRAVES guard J LAMBERT GuOrd 0 , 1 1 -3WWV CAPE BARNETT 3 (ju 3 oruu rc fSL C ' fAL-r .rEoruua d i v SOWDER Cenihsr J 4 APOSTOLOU E- c r w r ROWELL Cen er- h f I 4 " it HEIT i Center HURDLE Gu rd cwi£ r $ nci er w ufl r it %« w d MX WEI L f DAWS C. 1AKWELL WHITE KRfONT HOOD GRANT imcen pAim CAPTAIN PEmm COACH nMCINBOIVAfl Gm3 HUDGINS STEWART EMClmTHAH of 193 7 Resume of Girls’ Basket Ball T HE Girls ' Varsity Basket Ball team completed its fourth successful session with the record of one defeat and one tie out of fourteen games. They were the county champions for their fourth year. There were three members of the team who w T ere placed on the All-County team, two receiving positions on the first team, and one on the second. The team scored 309 points to 259 for their opponents. High scorers for the season were Colleen Sanford, with the total of 149 points, and Beulah Grant runner-up, with a total of 117 points. Andrew Lewis will lose one of her best teams this year, for all six of the players graduate. We, of Andrew Lewis, wish success to each member of the team for her excellent sportsman¬ ship and teamwork. Varsity Beulah Grant Forward —117. All-County team, ’35-’36. Beulah has shown real sportsmanship during her three years on the Lewis court, and her loss will be greatly noticed. Edythe Davis Side Center. We, of A. L. H., hope that Edythe may meet through life with a great success like that which she has attained getting around on the hardwood. Colleen Sanford Forward —-149. Colleen has demonstrated remarkable prowess in her keenness of eye for the basket. All her friends and admirers will miss her greatly. Elizabeth Higginbotham Forward—Jump Center. Jump center on All-County team, ’36- ' 37. Elizabeth has proved her ability as a player in two import¬ ant positions and greatly deserves all the credit she receives. Nancy Pierpont Jump Center. Nancy has proved the age- old saying—A clear head is a great benefit to a team. Margaret Parker Guard and Captain. Guard on All-County team, ’36-’37. “Lefty” has proved that a good sport is something that every team needs and we athletes, as well as spectators, wish her a successful future. Caroline Maxwell Guard. Guard on second All-County team, ' 36-’37. That which Caroline lacks in height she makes up in her ability as a player. We are sure that she will continue her success to a higher goal. Junior Varsity and Subs Guards Centers Forwards J. Hudgins H. Grubb J. Maxwell E. J. Doughman N. White (J. C.) J. A. WlLFONG (S. C.)

These crack “nines” have never received their justifiable plaudits in this yearbook, because it always went to the press before the season had started. So The Pioneer, standing for under-grads and grads alike, takes this opportunity to pay a tribute to Coach Denton and his long line of excellent ball clubs. Delving into the records of the Wolverine “sluggers,” we offer these statistics, which demonstrate the capability of Salem ball players and of Mr. Denton. Last year a total of 14 games were played; only two games were lost. During the years from 1932-1935, 63 out of the 72 games played were won by the Wolverine “sluggers.” In 1928 and 1929, “Ducky’s” charges, led by the Crosswhite battery, were the State Champions, and other Lewis teams would have been, had not the title been destroyed by State officials. We point with pride to the record of our baseball teams, and we know that the success of these teams is due, in no small way, to Mr. Denton, who, regardless of the scarcity of material, has always produced a winning team.

Under the supervision of Asbury Maury and of Coach Denton the team developed rapidly and has finished the season with a creditable record. Four meets were held; the Wolverines were victorious in two of these; the other two were lost by scanty margins. The County Meet was decisively won by Andrew Lewis. Outstanding among the Track-performers were Johnson with 64 y 2 points; Hurdle with 30 points; Keith and Lee with 24 points each; Ednie with 21 points; and Spiggle and McGhee with 16 points each. Next year, with such a firm foundation laid, Andrew Lewis should have a track team that should rank among the state’s best. 1 71 1 Appreciation TT is with real pleasure that we take this opportunity to thank the business firms of Roanoke and Salem for their whole-hearted cooperation and assistance in the publishing of this 1937 Pioneer.
