Text from Pages 1 - 92 of the 1938 volume:

The PIONEER 1938 Pioneer NINETEEN HUNDRED THIRTY-EIGHT PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS of ANDREW LEWIS HIGH SCHOOL SALEM, VIRGINIA Mrs. Taylor Turner 7E LOVE her for her genial, lovable nature and sympathetic understanding. We admire her for her intellectuality, diligence, and versatility; for the talent which she possesses in the art of teaching, enabling her to make the study of the English language so appealing to her students; and, for her marvelous capacity for “getting things done. " We shall remember her always for having inspired us in her literature classes to appreciate the finer things of life; for the clear and forceful manner in which she explains and interprets that which she teaches. She has taught us to “work when we work” and, that a sense of worthy achievement is the best reward. We appreciate her for the inestimable service which she has rendered in the publication of this and annuals of other years. With affection and gratitude we, therefore, honor her by dedicating this Pioneer of ' 38 to our much loved Faculty Adviser, Mrs. Taylor Turner. Pay Tribute Mrs. Turner came to us in 1930, when we were known as Salem High School, on Broad Street. Since that time she has been a member of the English faculty, teaching English Composition and Literature. Eor the past four years she has been Faculty Sponsor of The Pioneer. Mrs. Turner, formerly Miss Clyde Ramsey, had most of her academic training at Blackstone College, later attending William and Marv and Roanoke College, receiving her Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from the latter. She has made her home in Roanoke since 1926. Prior to this, she taught two years in Hillsboro High School, Loudoun County, and four in Rocky Mount High School. From 1926 to 1930, she taught in the Vinton schools. Her mother, Mrs. Roxie Ramsey, is remembered by people in Roanoke and Salem, who were taught by her during her thirty-six years of service in Henry and Franklin County schools. It is from her, Mrs. Turner says, that she received her love for teaching as well as for things literary. It is Mrs. Turner’s ambition to continue at Andrew Lewis High School until she has equalled her mother’s record. She would like, then, to retire and write a realistic novel, depicting some of her experiences in and out of the class¬ room. She even dares to hope that she may live to be the recipient of letters (thanking her for the “chastisements inflicted in by-gone years”) from a few college presidents, D. D. ' s, etc.—former students of Andrew Lewis—such as those her mother often receives. An extremely industrious and very versatile person, Mrs. Turner is somewhat of a business woman as well as teacher. She makes a proficient bookkeeper and cashier for her husband, outside school hours, and is quite adept at planning meals and taking care of a home, we are told. She likes a quiet home life, with her books and music, enjoys opera and plays very much, and delights in strolling leisurely about in the fields and woods on a spring day. Although firm and resolute in the classroom, she has a quiet, unassuming way which gives charm to her personality. Perhaps her most outstanding trait is illustrated by the thought so often expressed to her students that, those whose lives count for most are people who find reward in the joy that comes from giving freely and unceasingly of their best to tbe world, people who give a great deal more than they expect to receive compensation for. Introduction y " HEN the days have lengthened into weeks, the weeks into months and the months into years, only memory will remain as the bridge between today and yesterday. The purpose of The Pioneer is to strengthen that bridge and to make the past a little nearer than it would otherwise be. In fulfilling this purpose we, the staff, are presenting to you these pages which we hope will ever be a tangible memory of Andrew Lewis. We are all merely “bit players” on this huge stage of life. As seniors, we leave the first act of our play to begin the next act with a mixed feeling of regret and eager anticipation. To the Class of ' 38 and those to come, we indite this issue of The Pioneer with the hope that you will cherish it and that you will allow it to fulfill its purpose, that of bridging the time. When in after years you sit and think—of scenes, friends and teachers—- may this Pioneer relive for you your life at Andrew Lewis. THE PIONEER presents to you— you. The quaint, dwarfish little figures that introduce the different divisions will, we hope, make you laugh as you see them imitate you in your various activities of school life at Alma Mater. Book One is the Personnel of the school — the Faculty, the students by classes, Senior, Junior, Soph¬ omore and Freshman; the Senior Superlatives. Book Two gives the Athletic Events of the year, the ups and downs of your Wolverines in football, basket ball, baseball and track, as well as the sorrows and triumphs of your Lewis girls ' team. Book Three records the Activities of your various organizations and clubs. Book Four, the Miscellany Section, contains school snapshots from here and there and the advertisements of your loyal friends, the business firms of Roanoke and Salem. Senior and Junior Horne Room Presidents (Members Student Council) Book One THE FACULTY THE CLASSES Personnel Our Principal ' T ' O THE Class of 1938 is given the distinction of graduating in the year that marks the Centennial of the founding of Roanoke County. The name of your school commemorates one of the most illustrious of its early sons, and the title of your yearbook draws its significance from the work of the county’s pio¬ neers. May the students whose faces and names and the chronicles of whose high school days this volume of The Pioneer attempts to portray and perpetuate, bear in mind those values which made the pioneers great. As the past was theirs, so is the future yours, and I wish for each of you happiness and success wherever your destiny may lead. Sincerely yours, ngn Our Faculty Mr. E. B. Broadwater Principal Mr. L.

Wright Arithmetic, Algebra SSI During the year from September 19, 1937, to May 31, 1938, the corridors and rooms of Andrew Lewis have been teeming with various activities. The students, over a thousand, had to get down to the daily grind of the curriculum. Old customs! Fresh material! Breathless waiting! This year Andrew Lewis and Jefferson clashed, as of old, at Maher Field. It was a memorable time, because Andrew Lewis won the pigskin skirmish by a score of 6-2. Hallowe’en came with parties and parade, followed by the grand holidays of Thanksgiving. Wonder if the football boys expect the “good housekeepers,” the Home Economics Club, to feed them every year? This year they had a filling meal from the Club—a banquet in the Home Economics Department. The Girl Reserves took in their new members at a banquet given in the beauti¬ fully decorated cafeteria. A program by the members was given. Christmas, coming like a sled do wn hill, found us the last day before the holidays started compactly packed in the auditorium. There, before our eyes, unfolded the Christmas story pantomimed by a number of students before a gorgeous painting. The descriptive songs were sung by a group from the Glee Club. The Home Economics Club was entertained by the Monogram Club at a dance at the Woman’s Club Flouse. Thanks, boys, for a lovely evening. Many Girl Reserves enjoyed an informal dance on Saturday, February 12th. Two banquets have been given by the Hi-Y boys. This is a very active club among the boys of our school. The Future Farmers of America held their annual “father-son” banquet in the Andrew Lewis cafeteria. The program was very interesting. It consisted of talks and a resume of the year’s work. The faculty entertained Miss Mary Virginia White, one of their number, at a pre-nuptial tea. It was a very colorful event. April, and the marvelous convention of the Virginia Beta Clubs—-and one of our students elected President of the Virginia Beta Club. Rah for Lewis ! Good Debaters ! We are glad you did so well. Singers and speakers ! Medals for the winners. We’re proud of our participants in all of these contests. With song and salaam the Andrew Lewis Glee Club gave the very colorful operetta, “Miss Cherry Blossom.” A gala dramatic performance, “Big-Hearted Herbert,” was also presented in April by the faculty to the student body and the public. It was the first time this had been done. A bow to the faculty from all. Speeches and good food, with the blue and white lending atmosphere, were enjoyed by the members of the Beta Club and newspaper staff. The banquet of these two organizations passed with much hilarity. The Home Economics Club’s spring formal, enjoyed by many, was a gay affair for all that attended. On a Sunday afternoon the people of Salem and the surrounding community had the pleasure of hearing the Andrew Lewis Glee Club give a sacred concert. With the Girl Reserves resplendent in lovely evening gowns, the Spring Formal was enjoyed by the Girl Reserves, Hi-Y and many others. Old, but ever new, another custom of the school each year and, each year new to the class in whose honor it is given—the Senior Banquet. Seniors, all together at their Alma Mater, enjoying their last feast together there as a class, before commencing to shift for themselves in a new cycle of life. Sweet, but sad, because soon they will be scattered far and wide. So many of the activities are routines every year, hut always new to the Senior Class that carries them out. The Senior play, another of these, is now over and but a memory to the actors and observers. An annual event, yet ever new, comes the denouement of the year, the denoue¬ ment of four years to each class. It is graduation! The seating, the program, the auditorium decorated all in our honor and, lastly the paper that means The End. Highlights of Our Senior Year Margaret Cheatham.

Adams William Nathan Agee Vera Akers Virginia Mae Amos Mildred Cornelia Ellen Terrence Baker Atkinson KATIE C. M. ADAMS Senior Choral Club, 4; Dramatic Club, 4; Art Club, 4; Operetta. Katie has been warbling in our Choral Club for only a year but she warbled right into our hearts. She is, I hear, a talented member of the Art Club and Dramatic Club, also. She wants to be a laboratory technician. She has chosen William and Mary as her College. William and Mary could not receive a better student and a more thoroughly delightful person. WILLIAM NATHAN AGEE Aviation Club, 4; Basket Ball. William has been an alert student at Andrew Lewis as well as at Back Creek, from which school he came to us. He has a worthy ambition, law, and has one of the best hobbies, reading, one could have if he would become educated. He is active in athletics, although he does not plan to go to college, we foresee a well-rounded, useful life for him as a self-m ade man. VERA AKERS Girl Reserves, 3, 4; Latin Club, 1; Dramatic Club, 4; Home Economics, 2. One of our commercial girls, Vera has high aims in the business world. She expects to complete her training at National and after that to take her place in the world as one of Andrew Lewis’s future business women. Along with her stenographic efficiency, her smooth, pleasing manner will no doubt spell success and happiness for her in her career, as it has done at Andrew Lewis. VIRGINIA MAE AMOS Latin Club, 1, 2; Beta Club, 3, 4 To us, Virginia signifies the best. She is fun and still does not lose her dignity and poise. She will take her place in the Beta Club “Hall of Fame, ’’ as one of its most loyal and enthusiastic members. In her career as a secre¬ tary we feel confident that she will rise to and remain at the top. 4 16 MILDRED CORNELIA ELLEN ATKINSON Latin, 1, 2; Secretary of Club, 3; President of Freshman Class; Secretary of Student Council; President, Sophomore Class; Beta Club, 3, 4; Secretary, 4; Literary, 1; Vice President, 1. Mildred—Minerva of Andrew Lewis— has proved that she can be an outstanding student and still remain as regular as any of us. Her hobby is the mandolin. With Roanoke College as her choice for next year, we expect great things heaped up and running over for Mildred. TERRENCE BAKER Art Club, 4; Annual Staff, 4 “Skippy” has an exceptional talent for art and a sense of humor, both of which will stand him in good stead. It seems that his hobbies are sketching and collecting an¬ tiques. His ambition is to be a mechanical artist. He hopes to attend William and Mary College. JUSTIN JOHN BAYSE Beta Club, 3, 4; Track, 3; Baseball, 2 Justin is one of the few students who can engage in the many sports of high school and make a good record. This is proved by the fact that he has been a member of the Beta Club in his Junior and also Senior year. A student with Justin’s record has a most successful career in store for him. ONEDA GERTRUDE BECKNER French Club, 3, 4 After spending the entire four years of her high school at Andrew ' Lew ' is, Oneda wishes, like many others of our number, to take up nursing as her vocation. She enjoys a quiet life, preferring to stay at home and read, rather than “gad around.” Some day we’ll no doubt see her at Lew ' is-Gale or Jefferson. tstin John Bayse Oneda Gertrude Beckner Wanda Black Jack Blackard B. Margaret Blackard Lary Jane Bliss Bertha Bohon Lillian Virginia Bowman Irene Elizabeth Bradley J. Willard Brubaker WANDA BLACK Latin Club; Girl Reserves, 3, 4; French Club, 3, 4 She is a real girl among girls, a very good sport with her many friends, and has a sweet disposition. We shall always remember how the notes peal forth when she plays in assembly. And the college boys, oh well—must we tell? JACK BLACKARD Art Club, 4 Jack has been one of the more outstanding members of our Art Club. He hopes to outdo Vinci when he becomes more trained in his vocation. His hobby, philately (stamp collecting to you), takes up his leisure time and has proved interesting as well as profitable. To our future master artist we ascribe the Louvre with hopes of his, some day, filling it. B. MARGARET BLACKARD Latin Club, 1; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club, 2; Literary, 3; Beta, 4; Dramatic, 4. Margaret is a neat, quiet blond who is always willing to lend a helping hand. She makes splendid grades and still has time for her numerous club duties. Her hobby is that of collecting stamps and her ambition is to own and operate her own kindergarten. Next year she will enter Roanoke College and we are sure our loss will be their gain. Here’s hoping Margaret will be a good school ma’am. MARY JANE BLISS Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Latin Club, 2; Dramatic Club, 4; Baseball, 4. Mary Jane is not a life-long Salemite but during her several years here has made many friends and acquaint¬ ances. Her ambition is to be a dietitian and her hobbies are going to Roanoke College dances and going “Green¬ trucking.” We are confident that Sweetbrier will find her the same sweet, likable girl that Andrew Lewis has found her. BERTHA BOHON Bertha has been one of the many silent, yet powerful figures about Andrew Lewis. Those who have been fortunate enough to know her, have found her to be a delightful friend. To her we ascribe success as a reward for her ever-present diligence. LILLIAN VIRGINIA BOWMAN Literary Club, 2, 3; Glee Club, 2; French Club, 3, 4; Home Economics Club, 4. Lillian has always been very literary and she likes singing and reading as her favorite hobbies. She has been an active member of the Literary Club. She hopes to become an author and an instructor in Dramatics. We sincerely hope she attains both. Many curtain calls, Lillian! IRENE ELIZABETH BRADLEY Glee Club, 1, 2, 3 Irene, better known as “Rubberneck,” is a very sweet girl, liked by all who know her. Although she didn’t take much part in school activities, she is very ambitious. She desires to become a nurse. Lucky will the patient be whom she nurses. She is very jolly and a good cure for the blues. J. WILLARD BRUBAKER Glee Club, 1, 2, 3; Hi-Y, 2, 3; Basket Ball, 2, 3, 4; Annual Staff, 2, 3; Art Club, 4; Junior Class Secretary. I imagine all of us know J’s hobby is cartooning. Quite logically it should be the line of work for him to follow. He hopes to become a popular artist some day. J’s sense of humor is obvious as well as his rather informal cartoons, which grace our blackboards and bulletin boards. Oh, well! 17 CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Ruby Virginia Bryant Thelma Elizabeth Bryant Sarah Butts Catherine Byrd Ethel Virginia Byrd Mary Catherine Campbeli RUBY VIRGINIA BRYANT Ruby is one of the personifications of the spirit of Andrew Lewis. This musical-minded young lady is always on the job. Her four years in high school have been a pleasure to those who know her. Although she is not athletic, she has made up for that in other ways. Who would make a better dentist’s secretary than this sedate and sympathetic friend of ours. THELMA ELIZABETH BRYANT Home Economics Club, 1, 2, 3, 4 Quiet, reserved and complacent are just a few descrip¬ tive adjectives for Thelma. Her attitude has been a con¬ stant inspiration for the, shall we say, less quiet ones. She collects and writes letters to different parts of the world for her scrapbook. Her ambition is to be an aviatrix and we feel that with her capability, there will “be no crack ups.” SARAH BUTTS Glee Club, 1; Beta Club, 3, 4; Latin Club, 1 When the four years of education at Andrew Lewis are ended, Sarah, a congenial, capable girl wishes to become a “telephone girl”—BUT—how can she when telephones are quickly reverting from the “Hello” type to dial style? CATHERINE BYRD One of our ablest and most representative students is embodied in Catherine. Her charm and personality have made their mark in our memories. Hiking and swimming, in fact all sports, have a definite place in her life as her hobbies. With stenographic work as her vocation and National Business College as her choice for future study, we can expect great achievements from her. ETHEL VIRGINIA BYRD Home Economics Club, 2, 3; Glee Club, 3; Baseball, 2 Ethel Virginia, a true daughter of Andrew Lewis has been one of our most likable classmates. Her cheery manner and ability have made her popular with the teachers as well as the students. As a nurse she will, we know, climb to the top of the ladder of success. MARY CATHERINE CAMPBELL Annual Staff, 4 Catherine has a pleasing personality and a good way for making friends with everyone. She likes to read good books in the winter, and to spend her leisure time in the summer bicycling and swimming. Catherine wishes to further her commercial course at National. A future prospect for someone in quest of a private secretary. NEALURE JEANETTE CAMPBELL Glee Chib, 1, 2, 3, 4; Home Economics Club, 1, 2 Nealure hopes to become a bookkeeper some day. Her hobbies are collecting pictures, sports, and traveling. She is also fond of playing the piano, and her love for music is evident, since she has been a member of the Glee Club during her entire high school career. Best wishes to an attractive girl. ELIZABETH CARTER Girl Reserves, 2, 3; Treasurer, 4; News Paper Staff, 4; Dramatic Club, 4. Elizabeth, who likes outdoor sports and has been active in extra curricula activities, is bidding farewell to Andrew Lewis this year. She is a petite, witty, and attractive person whom all like. She plans to attend college and fit herself to adorn the inside of the modern home of this generation. Luck to Carter. 4 . 18 } Nealure Jeanette Campbell Margaret Audrey Cheatham Elizabeth Carter Esther Clark Curtis Cecil Lucy Clark Virginia Lois Cecil Claudine Virginia Clifton Edmund Sterling Chamberlin Charlotte Kathlee: Coleman CURTIS CECIL Latin Club, 1 Curtis is one of the best-natured boys at Andrew Lewis. His friendliness and his willingness to help others seem to make it impossible for him to have enemies. He is never sulky or disagreeable but bright and cheerful, ready to help; and never a protest is heard from him. He plans to attend National Business College. VIRGINIA LOIS CECIL Home Economics Club, 1 Lois is a friend indeed. Her four years in high school have been a pleasure to those who know her and to her associates in the Home Economics Club. She expects to attend National Business College and become a secretary in a doctor’s office. EDMUND STERLING CHAMBERLIN ESTHER CLARK Latin Club, 1; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Beta Club, 3, 4; Literary Club, 2, 3; Dramatics, 4; Annual Staff, 4; French Club, 4. Roanoke College will do well to capture Esther, and she has mentioned it as her choice. Another queen of modern sentiment, she has been stung by the Surgery Bee. Esthers’ two hobbies, dogs and short stories, play an important part in her life. She is one of the few Seniors who closes her high school career with four years of Latin. “Forsan et haec olim meminisse invabit, ” Esther. LUCY CLARK Latin Club, 1, 2; Literary Club, 1, 2; Home Economics Club, 1, 2, 3; Choral Club, 2, 3, 4; Girl Reserves, 4; Dramatic Club, 1, 2. An ideal girl, willing to cooperate and sweet to her friends, who are many. Her sweet soprano voice graces our Choral Club. She is a friendly helper and a helpful friend. To be a nurse is her desire and an excellent one she should be. Aviation Club, 4; French Club, 3, 4 In Edmund, we of Andrew Lewis discovered a friend, in the real sense of the word. He has made a mark here although he’s only been with us for two years. Edmund wishes to become an aviator and unusual enough, his hobby is building model airplanes. To him will go the silver wings of accomplishment in later life and we hope they are not long in coming. MARGARET AUDREY CHEATHAM Latin Club, 1, 2; Home Economics Club, 2; Girl Reserves, 3,4; Glee Club, 2, 3, 4; Senior Choral Club, 3, 4; Operetta, 3, 4; Annual Staff, 4. Quiet, dependable and sympathetic; these best describe “Cheatham.” To all her classmates she is something to hold on to in the hurly burly of school activities. Collect¬ ing stamps is her hobby, and a very good one, too. To her we send our heartfelt wishes for a successful career as a secretary. Tops for her! CLAUDINE VIRGINIA CLIFTON French Club, 3; Glee Club, 3 Although a genius of the piano, Claudine doesn’t readily display her talent. If you don’t believe that she is from Franklin just ask Mrs. Pedigo. They can spend many an hour talking about old acquaintances and friends. That she is graduating at the age of fifteen and is headed for Medical College proves that she has brains as well as ambition. CHARLOTTE KATHLEEN COLEMAN Literary Club, 2, 3; Dramatic Club, 4 Charlotte has been an active member of the Literary Club, and Dramatics Club. She is quite a likable girl with a fine sense of humor by which means she has ac¬ quired a host of friends. Charlotte plans to become a supervisor of nurses and we feel sure success will be the outcome of her desires. Many handsome patients, Charlotte! 4 19 ► CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Jane Frances Coon Fred Cormell Wyvetta Fern Craun Helen Ruth Crews Henry Lewis Dean Eva Jane Doughman JANE FRANCES COON Literary Club, 3; French Club, 3, 4; Glee Club, 3, 4; Girl Reserves, 4; Dramatic Club, 4. Jane, small in stature, possesses a vast amount of ability, and is a vivacious, charming little creature. Her sterling qualities and unsurpassable joviality, have won her a host of friends. Jane’s greatest problem is, “How can I study with love affairs on the brain?” We hear you are going to deck the halls of Roanoke College” next year. So good luck, Jane! FRED CORMELL Monogram Club, 2, 3, 4; Football, 2, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 2, 3; Baseball, 3; Spanish Club, 1, 2. In many football games our attention was often riveted to one figure, that of Fred. He was one of our most out¬ standing players. Quite logically he wants to become a coach. Next year the team at Hargrave will be the more fortunate for his attendance, and don’t forget to keep your buttons shined! WYVETTA FERN CRAUN Home Economics, 1, 2; Reporter, 2; Beta Club, 4; Glee Club, 1, 2, 3; Latin Club, 1, 2. Wyvetta Fern. The name is as delightful as the possessor. Her hobby is collecting poetry and making scrapbooks. She, in this interesting work, has acquired much originality and love of the beautiful in words. In her plans for the future, Wyvetta has charted a secretarial course. May her sea of life be smooth and pleasing. HELEN RUTH CREWS Ruth hopes to become a stenographer in later life but first she wants to attend National Business College. She is a quiet, nice girl with an interesting personality. Ruth is interested in sports, collecting pictures and likes to attend the movies. She is the only girl in the family and she has several brothers. Luck to Ruth at National and in after life. •■Of 20 HENRY LEWIS DEAN Aviation, 4; Baseball, 3 Henry’s first year of his high school career was spent at the Broad Street High School and then he came to Andrew Lewis. He likes sports and played on the baseball team in his third year, but we have our doubts about his becoming an athlete. He wishes to become an aviator. There is no reason why he shouldn’t be successful, because he has talent and mental ability. EVA JANE DOUGHMAN Basket Ball, 3, 4; Girl Reserves, 3, 4; Dramatics, 4; Annual Staff, 4; Baseball, 2, 3, 4. Scatter brained, lovable and altogether delightful, what else could fit Eva better? As a sports-woman she is and is to be outstanding. As a nurse we feel that she will be thoroughly efficient and, incidentally, charming. NANCY ECHOLS This young lady’s personality and charm have made her well known around Andrew Lewis. Her curls were always a source of envy and admiration among her girl friends. Ambitious and talented, Nancy is destined to go far. HUBERT W. DUTTON, Jr. Aviation Club, 4; Literary Club, 3 Good things come in small packages. This is doubly true in Hubert. He is thoroughly dependable, capable and a grand person to know. His ambition is to be an officer in the Army Air Corps. With a West Point back¬ ground and his ability we can promise him the best. Nancy Echols Oswald C. Francisco Hubert W. Dutton, Jr. Ralph Gallion Shirley Beatrice Ellis Dorothy Emory Kathryn Elizabeth Garst Helen Virginia Gearhart Mary Elizabeth Fleck Warren Williams Gilbert SHIRLEY BEATRICE ELLIS Home Economics Club, 1, 2; Latin Club, 3, 4 Dignified and dependable, Shirley had quietly but definitely made herself known around our corridors. An unusual hobby she practices, that of designing clothes. If she did not wish to become a stenographer, this hobby could warrant concentration. However, in whatever she does she will surpass. DOROTHY EMORY Hockey, 1, 2, 3; Dramatics, 1, 2, 3; Basket Ball, 2, 3; Art Club, 4; News Staff, 4; Glee Club, 3, 4. Dorothy has only been with us a year but we bet Garden City High in Old New York misses her heaps. Her hobbies are music, art and a dab of writing. Her ambitions run along this line, too. Her work, you see, is also to be her play. Hollins will receive a bundle of good things in her. Happy horizons to Dot. RALPH GALLION “Gallion” as he is known among all his friends has been an active member of the baseball team during his stay at Andrew Lewis. He is popular with everybody and has a knack at making friends. We hope for him the best of everything in that which he undertakes. KATHRYN ELIZABETH GARST Latin Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Chairman, Program Committee, 3; Vice President, 4; Glee Club, 2, 3, 4. Indispensable, that’s what she is. We think of nothing in the way of school activities without Kathryn’s entering into our plans. Reading takes up her leisure time and affords her much pleasure. In her oncoming career as a teacher, she is sure to overcome any obstacle in her path and come up with her characteristic smile. MARY ELIZABETH FLECK Latin Club, 1; Glee Club, 2, 3; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4 Petite, fair, and winsome, “Betty” has won her way into the hearts of all of us. She is characterized by her knitting bag which is seldom far from her. She sets interior decorating as her career and is going to get her training at Roanoke College. To her w e extend our hopes for a successful future. HELEN VIRGINIA GEARHART Home Economics Club, 1; Glee Club, 1, 2; Orchestra, 1; Choral Club. A smiling-eyed lass with poetic inclinations, Helen is aspiring to be a stenographer but would like also to teach Home Economics. She has been at Andrew Lewis all three of her high school years, participating in various activities. She plans to continue school at Radford State Teachers College. OSWALD C. FRANCISCO Aviation Club, 4; Literary Club, 2, 3, 4 Oswald has been active while attending the Andrew Lewis High School. His activities have been many and varied. Oswald, like most boys, likes sports, and out door life. He has aeronautical ambitions. May he soar high and never fall. WARREN WILLIAMS GILBERT F. F. A., 2, 3; Choral, 2, 3, 4; Operetta, 2, 3; Aviation Club, 4. Warren is a boy whom all like because of his winning ways. Building aeroplanes is a fancy that occupies his spare time. Aviation, he hopes, will occupy his future time. 21 CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Carl William Gottschalk Hugh Gresham Margaret Ruth Graybill Douglas Grisso Sarah Greenwood Louis Grisso CARL WILLIAM GOTTSCHALK Assistant Editor Newspaper, 3; Editor, 4; Beta Club, 3, 4; French Club, 4; Annual Staff, 3. Carl has made many friends in his years at Andrew Lewis. We know that he will continue his high scholastic record and even in his hobbies he shows his disposition to work. He says he finds collecting stamps and butter¬ flies interesting. It seems that he has brains, and countless other requisites for the attainment of ideals such as no one else has—dependability, perseverance and resource¬ fulness. These have won him a place of high esteem in his school life here, as they are sure to do, where ever he may go. On to fame in the field of science. MARGARET RUTH GRAYBILL A faithful student at Andrew Lewis for four years, and very valuable to the Glee Club, Ruth delights in reading and tennis, and is one who gets the most out of life because she puts something into it. With her humor and pre¬ dominating qualities, she will be sure to succeed. Her ambition is to be a stenographer or another “Rae Black.” Better known as ‘‘Rufus Peabody” to her close friends. She is noted for her sweet disposition and capability in classes. SARAH GREENWOOD Home Economics Club, 4; Latin Club, 1, 2, 3; Senior Choral, 2, 3, 4; Operetta, 3, 4. Sarah, petite, vivacious and fair has been one of our brightest stars here at Andrew Lewis. Talented in many ways, she has been in numerous clubs and presentations of the school. With her arrow of ambition toward a high target, we feel sure that her aim will prove true. HUGH GRESHAM Hugh—better known as “Horsie”—has been one of our leaders in many activities in and about school. His friends are numerous, for his quiet and friendly manner have made him popu lar with everyone. To one of the grandest people we know, we wish everything good. DOUGLAS GRISSO When Douglas came to Andrew Lewis from Back Creek he was recognized immediately as a student and friend. He has never ‘‘Let us down” in this belief. Of such stuff men are made. We give the world one who has been to us the essence of scholarship as well as possessing the capacity for being a regular guy. LOUIS GRISSO French Club, 3, 4 ‘‘Freckles was his name, and his fame spread far.” His amiable disposition has popularized Louis with all the students. As a clerk or salesman Louis is sure to succeed for he has a knack of making ‘‘the customer always feel right anyway.” RUBY KATHERINE GRUBB Latin Club, 2; Beta Club, 3, 4; Newspaper Staff, 4 “Rubies” are always precious and rare, but this par¬ ticular Ruby has since been discovered as being one of the rarest. She shines out among her many classmates and brightens the world about her. Her sparkling rays are far-reaching and are clearing a path towards a goal which she has set her resplendent self to achieve. RUIE GRUBB Thinking much and saying little is Ruie. She has not had time for school clubs, since she spends most of her time reading or hiking, but she has belonged to the Home Economics Glee Clubs. In all of her courses at school, Ruie enjoyed Home Economics most. If she carrvs out her chief ambition, which is to be a dietitian, her Home Economics course will be a great benefit. We wish Ruie success in life. { 22 Ruby Katherine Grubb Ruie Grubb Virginia Mae Hamlett Charles Hammond Melvin Harvey Jean Haupt Howard Hayden Lottie Helms Hazel Henderson Mary Starke Higginbotham VIRGINIA MAE HAMLETT Glee Club, 1, 2 While at Andrew Lewis, Virginia has been very active in the Glee Club. She receives much pleasure in collecting “what-nots” and things of less value for her scrapbook and gets plenty of exercise by riding a bicycle. Her greatest ambition is to become a very successful housewife in years to come. Clean curtains in the future, Virginia. HOWARD HAYDEN Monogram, 4 Howard has a combined capacity for making grades and having fun, and has succeeded well in both. This unusual combination has made him popular with both students and teachers. We offer the world a person full of ambition and the ability to get ahead. CHARLES HAMMOND He towers above us, this Charles Hammond, in ideals as well as in actual stature. His leisure time is spent in sports of all kinds, especially tennis. An ambition high and excellent is his, that of becoming a mechanical engi¬ neer. V. M. I. will gain a good student and a grand person and we feel sure that the bridges of the future will typify his strength of character and determination. MELVIN HARVEY Melvin will soon say farewell to the halls of Andrew Lewis, having been here three years. He spent his first year at Back Creek. His hobbies are reading and out¬ door sports. He is also shy, and a self-effacing boy. He aspires to become an electrician. May there be no short circuit in the future, Melvin. JEAN HAUPT Girl Reserves, 4; Glee Club, 2, 3; Literary Club, 3; Latin Club, 1; Dramatic Club, 4. Jean is a lovable little lady with a “ tooth-paste smile.” This famous smile has done much to brighten an otherwise dreary day. She wishes to become an opera singer. With her delightful personality she is due to reach the top of any ladder. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present your future “Madame Butterfly.” LOTTIE HELMS Home Economics Club, 4; President, 4 Slender, dynamic and thoroughly charming is Lottie, one of our fairest maidens, and extremely well known, although she has been at Andrew Lewis only two years. Lottie will go far in any task she undertakes, because she puts her soul into whatever she does. HAZEL HENDERSON French Club, 3, 4 Another asset which Andrew Lewis acquired last year will go when Hazel graduates. Her cheery mien has been one of our most “up-lifting-influences.” The teaching profession will add to its number a capable member in Hazel. MARY STARKE HIGGINBOTHAM Girl Reserves, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 3, 4; Baseball, 2; Annual Staff, 3, 4; Activities Editor, 4; French Club, 3, 4; Latin Club, 2; News Staff, Circulation Manager; Legion Contest, 3; Literary Club, 3; Senior Play; Dramatic Club, 4. It was fortunate for us that Mary Starke landed on our beach three years ago. She has been prominent in many of our school activities and has afforded much attraction for the Junior gents. Her aspiration is strictly modern to become a M. D. by joining the ranks at Roanoke College. “Starke’s” vivacity, earnestness and inspiring personality will, we believe, make for success in her profession. 4 23 CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Dorothy Jane Hodges Eunice Hogan Mary Hope Hollyfield Wilma June Hoover Mac Hough Lucille M. Huff DOROTHY JANE HODGES Girl Reserves, 2, 3; President, 4; News Staff, 4; Dramatic Club, 4; Basket Ball, 4. “Dot” has always had that sweet disposition that has made her popular with all. She enjoys camping and acting. She has shown her talent for the stage. Entering Roanoke College next year, she is planning to study to become a dietitian. The old Alma Mater will miss her and we wish her success. EUNICE HOGAN Literary and Library Club, 2, 3, 4; Secretary, 4; Glee Club, 2, 3; Debating, 2, 3, 4; Senior Play. Eunice is so well known that to enumerate her many qualities would be quite difficult. Her mind is not made up as to her career; she has indeed shown that she can act or speak well, so acting may be one of her good qualities for life’s work. What ever profession obtains her will find in her a capable and willing worker as well as a grand girl. MARY HOPE HOLLYFIELD Latin Club, 1, 2; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Literary Club, 2; Glee Club, 2. This “ scrumptimonious ” piece of humanity known as “Hopie” has won many friends by her gentle disposition. She finds that her blushes are most attractive but after all inconvenient. “Hopie” is always ready for fun and adventure. Her greatest delight is riding in open road¬ sters. She is bound for Fredericksburg normal. Our best wishes will take the same train. WILMA JUNE HOOVER President, Freshman Class; Secretary of Latin Club; Band 2, 3, 4; Vice President of French Club, 4; Home Room President, 2; Senior Home Room President, 4; Art Editor of Annual, 4; Assistant Junior Editor; Sophomore Editor.

May her symphony of life be all “vivace, ” and entirely without a “miserere.” MAC HOUGH Latin Club, 1, 2; Annual Staff, 3, 4; Junior and Senior Editor; Beta Club, 3, 4; Newspaper Staff, 4. Mac is liked by everyone who knows him. He has been an active student throughout his four years in high school and makes high grades. He has made, splendid progress in everything he has undertaken. He has helped with The Pioneer, and is an asset on the newspaper staff. Every one has a good opinion of Mac. In general he has a good reputation, and one of Andrew Lewis’s most popular seniors. We expect him to carry on in the same admirable manner at the University of Virginia next year, and to achieve his ambition to become a doctor, of the very best. LUCILLE M. HUFF Lucille has been with us for four years now and we’ll miss her when she leaves. She is a cheerful quiet girl and chooses reading as a hobby. Though we regret to lose her, National Business College will gain an earnest worker in stenography. Clean type in the years to come, Lucille! DAN P. HURDLE Monogram 2, 3, 4; Track, 3, 4; Fli-Y, 2; Football, 2, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 3, 4. Danny is well recognized by his school chums because of his humorous (and handsome) qualities which make every one like him. His career in football, basket ball and track has stood out because of his sportsmanship and excellent ability. Fie will be hard to forget from the standpoint of sport (and other things). WILLIAM HURT F. F. A., 2, 3, 4 When our attention is called to William Hurt we cannot place the name, but let someone mention “Billy” and we begin immediately to scale to the heights, as one of our best-known students. “Billy” has remained unassuming and generally, a swell person. To him in-, we promise “heap much” success. • ■{ 24 Dan P. Hurdle William Hurt Electra Avis Kessler John Kinzie IRENE CLETIS JOHNSON Irene Cletis Johnson Ruth Koogler Geraldine Keith Pattie W. Lathan JOHN KINZIE George Floyd Kelch Lotharene Mqvto Lavinder Here we have a business-minded, quiet girl whose ambition is to be a proficient stenographer.

GERALDINE KEITH Glee Club, 2; Student Council, 2; Spanish Chib, 3; Home Economics Club, 3, 4; President, Home Economics, 4; Dramatic Club, 4. Through her genial personality “Deanie” has won many friends during her four years at Andrew Lewis. We can find no reason why she shouldn’t be a number one private secretary. Her hobbies are swimming and tennis. She has been an active member of the Home Economics Club for two years. We hope our brown-eyed friend’s future will be as bright as her smiles. Debating, 1, 4; Glee Club, 1,2,3, 4; Literary Club, 1, 2, 4; F. F. A., 3, 4. During his four years at Andrew Lewis, John has taken an active interest in school activities. Photography and reptile collection are his hobbies. His ambition is to be a speaker of power. This he will find abundant need for, in his chosen field, ministry. We are sure that John will make many fine contributions to any college that he may attend and always be the same good-natured fellow, whom we have known. RUTH KOOGLER Art Club, 4 Ruth is known among a few intimate friends as “Scar¬ lett.” Why? Because her waist is precisely the size of that particular heroine of fiction. Ruth is marked as one of our most able students and also as one of the best sports old Andrew Lewis High School has ever met. Good luck and plenty of it, Ruth! GEORGE FLOYD KELCH We never knew Floyd’s first name until his senior year, notwithstanding the tact that everyone knew him and the good things he stood for. A fine fellow, possessing high standards of living, Floyd will no doubt make a mark for himself in the world. ELECTRA AVIS KESSLER Glee Club, 1 Avis has a pleasing personality, and a way of getting along with everyone. She is a true friend at all times, to all who know her. She harbors a desire to be a steno¬ grapher or bookkeeper, with National Business College offering the training could she possibly fail? PATTIE W. LATHAN Latin Club, 1; French Club, 3, 4; Art Club, 4; Annual Staff, 3; Home Economics Club, 3. Pattie is a strawberry blonde with a great sense of humor. She has remarkable talent in drawing, which you have often seen exhibited in Andrew Lewis Library. Her reading as a hobby has aided her in understanding people. May her easels be full to overflowing in the future. LOTHARENE MQVTO LAVINDER Lotharene has been at Andrew Lewis only two years. She was transferred from Back Creek High School. She has always been quiet, studious and is admired by many people for her pleasant disposition. Her hobbies are swimming and dancing. She plans to go to National Business College to become a stenographer and we are sure that she will make a success of her life. 4 25 } CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Norman White Lavender Harrel Ray Lawrence William Eldridge Lee Eleanor Josephine Lemon Kathleen Rachel Leonard Frances Louise Lovern NORMAN WHITE LAVENDER One of our foremost students representing Andrew Lewis is Norman. He is known by his calm, unobtrusive stride through the corridors of our school. His ambition is to be a salesman and to lead a happy life. With the training that V. M. I. has to offer we are confident that he cannot fail to attain his aspiration. HARREL RAY LAWRENCE As a student Harrel has made his mark in the annals of Andrew Lewis. We feel confident that he will do the same in his future life. His dignified manners have placed him in the category of our most honored students. WILLIAM ELDRIDGE LEE Monogram Club, 3, 4; F. F. A. Club, 2, 3, 4 “Eggs” Lee is well known around our school in spite of his quiet manner and mien. “Still water runs deep,” certainly fits him, for under his calmness there is a great deal of capability. He collects souvenirs in his leisure time and he desires, more than anything to become a man. With such an incentive could he possibly evade success? ELEANOR JOSEPHINE LEMON Glee Club, 3, 4; Spanish Club, 3; Home Economics Club, 4; Secretary, 4; Pianist, 4; Dramatic Club, 4. Eleanor Jo, known to most of us as “Jo,” has been with us for two years. During this time we have found the petite ivory tickler to be genial and happy-go-lucky. Her plans are to enter Harrisonburg and become a history teacher but we wonder what suddenly changed it to V. P. I., Home Economics. Anyway, we wish her much success. { 26 KATHLEEN RACHEL LEONARD French Club, 3, 4; Literary Club, 4 Kathleen is a quiet, capable girl. She is noted for her high scholastic standing and has a keen sense of humor. She is an active member in the French Club and is also a member of the Literary Club, Her favorite sport is tennis. She expects to enter Virginia Intermont College and specialize in stenographic work. We anticipate great things for our esteemed classmate. FRANCES LOUISE LOVERN Latin Club, 1, 2 Frances is modest, quiet, and studious, and a good translator of Vergil. Hiking and skating are her hobbies. Her most earnest ambition is to become a nurse. She should easily attain this because she has plenty of “pa¬ tience.” “Bona fortuna tibi sit,” Frances. LUCY DARDEN MARTIN Latin Club, 2, 3; Glee Club, 2, 3; Literary Club, 2 Lucy, a good old Southern name, adorns this true Southern maid. Her soft and gentle manner are character¬ istic. Sports, strangely enough, are her hobbies and reading for “rainy days.” When asked her ambition, she very modestly replied, “To be successful in whatever I do.” We expect great things for her, heaped up and running over. THELMA MASINCUP Little can be said about Thelma that you don’t know already. Her friendly smile and sparkling eye are well known to the students and teachers. Because of these qualities she is very likely to be remembered. We hope and feel sure that she will reach the head of anything she enters into. Lucy Darden Martin Iary Virginia McCauley Thelma Masincup Mary Jean McClung Kathleen Mallicoat Mason Betty Jane McCollum Gibson Maxwell Ruby Norris McDaniel MARY JEAN McCLUNG KATHLEEN MALLICOAT MASON Jean MacDonald Maxwell Elizabeth McGhee Girl Reserves, 4 Although she has only been with us a year “Katey” has already found a place in our hearts. She will be re¬ membered long for her quiet disposition. She has shown her willingness to help in the Girl Reserves. She is an efficient worker, and we hope she will some day fulfill her ambition to be a nurse. GIBSON MAXWELL Hi-Y, 1; Annual Staff, 4; Vice President, Junior Class; Senior Play, Personality plus. This is “Gib” who has been with us for four years. He has served as a salesman and has conducted a bus line for our traveling teams, although he is more inclined to business than sports. Gibson’s aspira¬ tion runs high. He wants to be a transport pilot in the sky. We hope, by that time, his skyways and byways may be well defined. Latin Club, 1, 2; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Library Staff, 2, 3, 4; Literary Club, 3; Library Club, 2, 3; Poetry Club, 3; Dramatic Club, 4. In our book of memories we will remember a little black-eyed, black-haired girl like the girl on the flying trapeze—Jean. Jean’s personality, willingness to work, ability to get around with others will bring her content¬ ment and joy in the future. BETTY JANE McCOLLUM Spanish Club, 3; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club, 2 “Quiet and appealing” describes Betty. She will be remembered by her classmates as always willing to help. She is a familiar figure in the library. An excellent steno¬ grapher to grace any office—“Mr. President, your future secretary is on her way.” jean Macdonald maxwell Latin Club, 1; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; French Club, 3, 4; President, Sophomore Class; Beta Chib, 3, 4; Baseball, 2, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 3, 4; Student Council, 2, 3, 4. Jean has made herself and her high ideals well known at Andrew Lewis. She has benefited the school in the numerous activities in which she has taken part. Jean’s ambition, to be a physical education instructor, is a wise and good one, since she has proved an excellent athlete and has an extensive knowledge in the different fields of athletics. Roanoke College is lucky to get Jean, and we wish her the best of luck and much happiness. MARY VIRGINIA McCAULEY Glee Club, 2, 3, 4; Girl Reserves, 2, 3; Secretary, 4; French Club, 3, 4; Latin Club, 1, 2; Beta Club, 3, 4. This modest and winsome, blue-eyed blond has been with us not only four years but from the Town Hall up. Mary Virginia has been an honest and steadfast student and has made her mark at Andrew Lewis. She is one of Andrew Lewis’s humming birds, and we expect her to do wonders at Roanoke College next year. RUBY NORRIS McDANIEL Home Economics, 2; Glee Club, 2 Slim and vivacious Ruby has been at Andrew Lewis during her entire high school career. Her hobbies are such sports as swimming, hiking, and skating. She plans to attend National Business College next year and al¬ though she has not decided definitely on her career we extend our best wishes. ELIZABETH McGHEE Girl Reserves; Dramatic Club; Basket Ball Elizabeth, or “Libby” as we have nicknamed her, has been with us four years. In this time we have learned to love and appreciate her “happy-go-lucky” manner and kindly feeling toward others. She has used her energy and talent for all the school activities, sports, public speaking, and club w r ork. We feel sure that her willingness and eagerness for work will take her far in the business world which she has chosen for her career. 27 }• CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Edna Mae ' Miles Anna Christine Miller Mary Alice Morgan James Randolph Morton Mildred Mowles Frances Gillispie Murp: EDNA MAE MILES Glee Club, 1, 2, 3; Senior Choral Club, 4; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Dramatic Club, 4; Baseball, 4. “Daisy Mae” has been with us three years during which time we have found her to be very likeable and altogether jolly. Her hobby is roller skating and she is recognized as champion of our local rink. Her ambition is to attend Duke to major in Sociology. The university is certain to carry on in the company of our “Sonja Henie.” ANNA CHRISTINE MILLER Literary Club, 2; Home Economics Club, 2, 3; Latin Club, 2 A popular girl with boys as well as girls, a good sport, and a friend always is Anna, who has been with us for four years. In a scrapbook she hoards “this” and “that” gotten “here” and “there.” Perhaps between the covers you’ll find dance programs because dancing and collecting things for her scrapbook are her hobbies. Many fevered brows may be soothed by her hands in the future as she wishes to make nursing her vocation. MARY ALICE MORGAN Glee Club, 2, 3, 4; Home Economics Club, 3, 4; French Club, 3, 4. A fine girl, and a good sport, who can be depended on to do her share of the hard work. This is Mary Alice. In cooking and sewing she’s hard to beat. The study of Home Economics has spurred her ambition to become a dietitian. Here’s wishing success in her mission. JAMES RANDOLPH MORTON “Shorty,” as he is known to his friends, is a gay happy- go-lucky sort of boy. He is well liked by those who know him and is a well-known figure at Andrew Lewis. He does very, very well considering circumstances and if he keeps on trying hard he will amount to something. His hobby, stamp collecting, is a worthwhile one. “Shorty” is a good little fellow whom everyone admires for his brave, happy spirit. MILDRED MOWLES Glee Club, 1; Latin Club, 2, 3; Girl Reserves, 3, 4; Dramatic Club, 4; Senior Play, 4. Mildred’s broad and cheerful smile is her most outstand¬ ing feature. Her hobby, strange as it seems, is collecting dogs. Ambition has led her in the direction of a private secretary. We’re certain that either Roanoke or National will carry on well with Mildred as a scatterer of sunshine. FRANCES GILLISPIE MURPHY Literary and, Library Chib, 2, 3; Home Economics Club, 3, 4; Dramatic Chib, 4. “Hambone” as Frances is known to you, is as sweet as a rose, literally, for oh, how she blushes! Her wit and good nature have entertained the Literary Club, Home Eco¬ nomics Club and Dramatics while she has been in high school. She wants to be a nurse and then perhaps an airplane stewardess. We most certainly wish her luck. LUTHER W. NICAR Orchestra, 2, 3; F. F. A., 2, 3, 4; Reporter F. F. A., 3, 4 “Nick” has been a faithful member of the F. F. A. for three years, the last two of which he was reporter. It is very fitting that he should belong to this club because he wants to be a farmer. His hobby, he says, is hunting, but music must take some of his time as he was a member of the orchestra for two years. He will be splendid material for V. P. I. next year. LUCILLE NICHOLS Sweet, blond, and slim is Lucille. Her friends, if asked, recommend her heartily, for her quiet readiness to help others in time of need. She is queen in her own world. Good luck to you, Lucille. { 28 }■ Luther W. Nicar Emily N.

She is headed for Virginia Intermont next year. EVA LILLIAN OVERSTREET Latin Club, 1; Spanish Club, 3 Eva, a demure young lady, has many friends because of her restful personality. She seems to like foreign lan¬ guages, since she belonged to the Latin and Spanish Clubs, and her hobby is reading.

OWEN Home Economics Club, 2, 3, 4 Emily is a small girl with a big heart. She has made many friends in high school, and her favorite subject seems to be Home Economics.

To go to movies and to go hiking are her hobbies. The ambition of this senior is to become a stenographer. Success to Gladys! LEE WILSON PALMER Dramatic Club, 4; Journalism, 4 Lee came to Andrew Lewis from Wytheville this year, and we must say we think their loss was our gain. He has been active in the Dramatic Club and very much so in newspaper work. He wants to go to the University of Virginia and then to become a special correspondent. The adventurous life that he wants to lead would probably follow that ambition realized. VIRGINIA PARKER Virginia is a good sport, who likes basket ball better than any other sport. She delights in collecting snapshots. Virginia has a sweet personality and is liked by all. She is always ready to help in time of trouble. She laughs with all and rejoices over all good news.

Patton has been more than an active member of the Newspaper and Annual Staff. The oncoming classes to pass through the halls of our Alma Mater will not know what they miss, having no Patton to look up to. Her ambitions go high. She wants to be an anaesthetist, even if she can’t spell it. Lucky patients. 4 29 ) CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Sara Lee Poage Mariam Rose Poff Julius Eugene Puckett Glenn Wood Ramsey Ralph Ramsey Garland Reed SARA LEE POAGE French Chib, 3, 4; Literary Club, 4 Sara has made herself well known around Andrew Lewis. Her genial personality has made her a favorite with everybody. Perhaps her versatility is due to her two excellent hobbies, music and reading.

JULIUS EUGENE PUCKETT Orchestra, 2; Latin Club, 2, 3; Beta Club, 3, 4 This chap is a bit of all right, pip! pip! and stuff. A boy whose rise in the world will not be caused by “vaulting ambitions” but by a determination to get ahead. Do we see the young fellow leaving West Point to take up his life-long ambition to become an army airplane pilot? We hope that our vision is true. Cheerio! Old chap. GARLAND REED Music, 2, 3; French Club, 3, 4 “Tiny” makes up in brains and energy what he lacks in size. With a disposition as sunny as his hair, he is well known and liked by everyone. “Blondie” is as good in music as he is in outdoor sports, but at the present time he is more interested in the opposite sex than in music. He should succeed in both. ROSCOE NELSON REED F. F. A., 2, 3; Latin Club, 1 Nelson is a rather typical boy, fond of hunting and fishing. He hopes to become an a Number 1 Bookkeeper and works hard toward this goal. His friends at Andrew Lewis wish him luck. GLENN WOOD RAMSEY Glee Club, 1, 2; Hi-Y, 1, 2, 3; F. F.

When he came to school he started to sing, But when he got through he was the ten pin King. He’s a fine leader we hear people say— No wonder he got his training in the F. F. A. 4 30 DAVID KOLMER REICH Glee Club, 1 Small in stature, but large in heart and mind, Kolmer never lets a difficult problem stop him. For recreation, hunting and fishing appeal to him. His willingness to help others makes him a welcome guest wherever he goes. His ambition is to be respected by everyone. Certainly he deserves it. Roscoe Nelson Reed David Kolmer Reich Lonnie Ellen Saul Rachel Mae Saul ROBERT LAWRENCE RIDGWAY Robert Lawrence Ridgway Margaret Schuler Charles Rowell John Sellew RACHEL MAE SAUL David Rucker Donald Monroe Shelor Glee Club, 1 Robert is the embodiment of the proberbial senior dignity.

Her hobby is collecting bracelets and reading. An enviable ambition is hers—to be suc¬ cessful in whatever she undertakes. We hope she realizes it. CHARLES ROWELL “Chuck,” as we know him, is one of the most likable fellows that it has ever been our fortune to encounter. His basket ball ability has made him invaluable to the team and he will be sorely missed next year. Clear skies and all you wish for is our hope for you, “Chuck.” DAVID RUCKER Latin Club, 1; Sports Editor of Roman Herald, 1; Spanish Club, 3; Secretary, Hi-Y, 2, 3; Monogram Club, 3, 4; Midget Basket Ball and Baseball, 3; Basket Ball, 3, 4; Captain, 4; Baseball, 3, 4; Football, 3, 4; Dramatics, 4.

Margaret, better known as Peggy, is an eager, talented lass with an expansive grin. Her activities, many though they be, can’t lure her away from learning and it is needless to say that she is in high standing with the Beta Club. As “Ye Old Editor” of The Pioneer her motto is “this is going to be the best annual.” Her voice, ah, but you’ve heard her in the operetta. Fredericksburg gains what we lose. JOHN SELLEW Ili-Y, 2, 3, 4; Band, 3, 4 Johnny is a conscientious and ambitious boy. He makes good grades and is very smart, although he does not say much. Johnny is well liked at Andrew Lewis and has taken part in many school activities. His ambition to be an electrical engineer, is well suited to him. He also has talent in music and wood carving.

Lonnie’s vitality and freshness make her a delightful person. Her mischievous eyes and flashing smile brighten any place. She has a way about her that is enjoyably different. DONALD MONROE SHELOR Aviation Club, 4; Vice President, 4; F. F. A. Club Donald is the modern Andrew Lewis version of Romeo. Incidentally, one of his hobbies besides basket ball, swimming, and hunting, is heart-breaking. In spite of his hobby it seems he desires to remain a bachelor; also, to visit Africa. We hope he escapes the various perils in that vast, uncivilized continent. Bon voyage. 4 31 } CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Bessie Marie Sink Earl Sink Warren Danford Smiley Ruth Lee Smith Warren Hancock Sowder James Spiggle BESSIE MARIE SINK Titian-haired Bessie has been like a bright light in the halls of Andrew Lewis. Her hobbies are music and danc¬ ing. Bessie has not decided definitely about her plans for the future but whether she chooses to further her education or not we wish for her the best there is, from the bottom of our hearts. WARREN HANCOCK SOWDER Monogram Club, 3, 4; Football, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 3 Warren is well known around Andrew Lewis. He has been here four years—plus. His hobbies being football and basket ball, he has been an old stand-by for the Lewis teams. We wish you success in your ambition to be an aviator, Warren. And we hope you get to Oxford. EARL SINK Monogram, 3, 4 Earl’s participation in Andrew Lewis athletics contests have added a great deal toward his popularity, in addition to his own personal friendliness and disarming grin. In anything he undertakes we know he will succeed because —well, we just know, that’s all. WARREN DANFORD SMILEY Glee Club, 3, 4; French Club, 3, 4; President, 4; Annual Staff, 4. “Speed” has taken a great part in school activities. He is a good “Yeller” and also a good speller. To be an automobile expert or a doctor—which? In either line Dan should be fine. RUTH LEE SMITH Glee Club, 2, 3, 4; Literary Club, 2, 3; French Club, 4; Dramatic Club, 4; Library Club, 3, 4. Ruth has been an active student during her high school career. With Glee Club, literary and library activities taking up the better part of her time yet she finds time to devote to reading medicine and studying make-up connected with dramatics. She wants to be a doctor and we know that the patient will be in good hands if Ruth is in charge. Marion is getting to be a good girl and a good student. Here’s hoping you do your best and get the best in return. 4 32 } JAMES SPIGGLE Monogram Club, 4; Treasurer, 4; Football, 4; Track, 3, 4; Beta Club, 3, 4; Latin Club, 3; Student Council, 4; Annual Staff, 3,4. “Big Jim” Spiggle has what it takes. He is better than common in all sports and readily takes a part. He is so kind and courteous that he would have made an ideal knight. He is one of those rare people who can mix every thing good and otherwise and still come out on top in his studies. He is a member of the Beta Club, which is one of the highest honors received in high school. What “Jim” goes after he usually attains, so he shouldn’t have any trouble getting along after he has finished school. JACK STAMPER Speaking of disarming grins, here is one of the most attractive we’ve seen in a long time. Although he is quiet, Jack has made many friends notwithstanding the fact that he’s only been here a year. As an engineer he is sure to reach the top. Here’s to more and better bridges, Jack. KATHERINE ST. CLAIR Latin Club, 1; Choral Club, 2, 4; Home Economics Club, 4; Literary-Library Club, 4; Library Assistant, 4. Katherine is a very active girl, as we readily see from the many activities that she takes part in; also from these activities she has proved to be a good sport. She is very considerate of others. Katherine is very faithful to her school. She attends regularly and shows that she is striving to gain a good education. Jack Stamper irginia Rose Stuart Katherine St. Clair Mary Lois Summers June Stevenson Geneva Thomas Mary Elizabeth Stewart Jack Thomas Frances Stoutamire Betty Virginia Turner JUNE STEVENSON Girl Reserves, 3, 4; Latin Club, 1; Annual Scribe, 4; Dramatics, 4. June is another sweet, amiable girl, always ready to help those who are in need. She spends her leisure time reading and studying music. She plans to enter the University of Cincinnati next year to study art. She then plans to teach art classes in the public schools. May her canvasses be always bright and unshaded. MARY LOIS SUMMERS During her four years at Andrew Lewis, Mary has made an excellent record for herself and has been a credit to her school. If she continues to study in the future, as she has in the past, she will no doubt achieve her ambition. Andrew Lewis will miss her next year, but we think that she will be an honor to Roanoke College, for studying and Mary go hand in hand. MARY ELIZABETH STEWART Literary Club, 3, 4; French Club, 3, 4; Baseball, 2, 3; Basket Ball, 3. B for Betty; E for energetic; T for thoughtful; T for tactful; Y for youthful. Betty is all of these and more. Active in athletics and activities including the French and Literary Clubs, she has been quite indispensable to the school. Like many of our girls, Betty has chosen stenog¬ raphy for her life work. With regret at parting, Andrew Lewis wishes for her, great success. FRANCES STOUTAMIRE Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Latin Club, 1, 2; President, 1; Choral Club, 2, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 3, 4; Baseball, 3, 4; French Club, 3, 4; Dramatic Club, 4. Frances, who answers to the name of “Fuzzie” around the Lewis halls, is liked by everyone because of her genial and attractive ways. She tells us her hobby is rumble seats. We wonder? She has been a member of the Girl Reserves for three years and has played baseball and basket ball for two years. Farmville is sure to carry on well with our flaxen-haired athlete next year. VIRGINIA ROSE STUART Library Club, 4; Literary Club, 4; Library Staff ( typist ) Rose is not very well known in school but all who know her like her. She is a very good sport and is of a very athletic type. Her ambition is to become a famous typist. We all hope that she will some day have this honor. GENEVA THOMAS Quiet and dependable, quite fully describes Geneva. This serene blond lady has made her place among the seniors of Andrew Lewis. Her hobbies are reading and basket ball. She plans to become a typist, having prepared partially for this work in high school. We wish for her clean keys always. JACK THOMAS Dramatic Club, 4; Baseball, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 3, 4; Tennis Team, 4; Monogram Club, 4. A grand friend to everyone and a good sport in every way. His friendly manner and jovial spirit are always welcome in the classrooms as well as on the athletic field. His ambition to become a professional ball player will be fulfilled if the spirit which he always puts into his work is maintained throughout the rest of his career. May you never be behind the eight ball. BETTY VIRGINIA TURNER Latin Club, 1, 2; Glee Club, 2; Literary, 3, 4; President of Literary Club, 4; Debate Team, 3, 4; Beta Club, 3, 4; Treasurer of Beta Club, 4; Library Club, 4. Betty is small but mighty. She makes a success of whatever she undertakes. She has that friendly smile for everyone she greets. She is well known in school, especially for her ability as one of our best debaters. Lucky will be the business man who has her for his stenographer. The best to Betty from us of Andrew Lewis. •§{ 33 fa CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Doris Elizabeth Turner Laura Virginia Vest Martha Ruth Vesi Mildred Elizabeth Vest Evelyn Uzila Webster Hortense Websteb DORIS E LIZABETH TURNER Latin Club, 2, 3; French Club, 3, 4 Doris is a quiet, capable girl who makes friends every¬ where she goes. She spends much of her leisure time read¬ ing. She wishes to become a tutor of the rising generation. She will likely be very successful because her record at Andrew Lewis bespeaks a successful future. Doris favors Roanoke College as the place to receive the finishing touches. LAURA VIRGINIA VEST Laura is an ambitious girl, willing to help those in need. She has been here only a year, therefore everybody has not had the pleasure of meeting this striking ex-Jeffersonian. She delights in reading, and enjoys swimming and dancing, also. Laura is sure to be successful in life, because where there is a will there is usually a way. MARTHA RUTH VEST Martha is an ex-Lee High student. We are glad to have welcomed her to Andrew Lewis. Martha, is like her sister, a willing friend and a congenial sort of person. She will be remembered long at Andrew Lewis for her easy manner and friendly way. MILDRED ELIZABETH VEST Home Economics, 1, 2 We never heard much from Mildred, personally, be¬ cause she was quiet and dignified and so different from us. She has, however, made her mark in the annals of Andrew Lewis as an active member of the Home Economics Club. She has made no definite decision as to her career but successful she will be, we know, in anything. EVELYN UZILA WEBSTER French Club, 3, 4 One of the most striking things about Evelyn is her ambition, namely, to give to the world the best she has. This is in itself a creed which will surely bring its reward. Her winsome smile has won Evelyn numbers of friends. We all wish for her the best always. HORTENSE WEBSTER Latin Club, 1, 2; French Club, 3, 4; Beta Club, 3, 4; Glee Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Operetta, 3, 4. One of Andrew Lewis’ musicians is “Alberta,” and a diligent student, too. She is full of pep and school spirit. Besides playing the piano, she is interested in reading and home-making. She has been successful in carrying a feature of her “Junior” year through her senior year. We wish her success in music—and the rest. CATHERINE FRANCES WERTZ Glee Club, 2, 3, 4; Literary and Library Club, 3; Home Economics, 3, 4; Dramatic Club, 4. Catherine or “Cack” has been an active student at Andrew Lewis for four years. She has announced, during her last years of school, that her ambition is to be a private secretary or a housewife. With her dignity and independence she should make an ideal housewife or an efficient secretary. We wish Catherine luck in her under¬ takings. SYLVIA DOSIA WERTZ Literary and Library Club, 4; Senior Choral Club, 4; Operetta, 4. “Who is Sylvia, what is she—?” Any one at Andrew Lewis can answer that question in double-quick time. She is one of the sweetest girls we have ever known. Consci¬ entious, dependable and quite likable is Sylvia. Her hobby is reading which is very appropriate for this quiet little lady. She expects to attend Bridgewater College and become a teacher. More power to Sylvia. 4 34 }■ ' atherine Frances Wertz Sylvia Dosia Wertz Eugene Williams Forest Wimmer NELLIE ALICE WHITE Nellie Alice White Weldon David Wirt Bruce Whitlock Martin Thomas u tt r WlLBOURNE, }R.

A genial personality and a pleasing good nature are assets to be envied. Nell not only possesses these, but many other admirable attributes. She is an outstanding senior. Helpful, resourceful and willing, a pick-of-the- crowd, and a jack-of-all-trades, she has been quite a boon to our school. She has been an excellent athlete. Agriculture Club, 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club, 2, 3; Aviation Club, 4. Forest has been a real pal to those who know him at Andrew Lewis. He has been active in the Agriculture Club during his four years in school and in the Glee Club for two years. He is interested in aviation and belonged to the Aviation Club this year, but his ambition is to be a bachelor. (He’d better watch out.) We all wish him luck. BRUCE WHITLOCK Monogram, 3, 4; President, 4; Football, 3, 4; Basket Ball, 3, 4; Baseball, 4. Bruce, an adopted son of Andrew Lewis, came here two years ago from Lee Junior. He has heen one of our main¬ stays in athletics, especially football and basket ball. He’s expected to scale the heights the last of May. The athletic boys will greatly miss him and we are not too certain about some of the girls. MARTIN THOMAS WlLBOURNE, Jr. Latin Club, 2; Literary Club, 3; Student Council, 2; Mono¬ gram Club, 4; Beta Club, 3, 4; President, 4; Football, 2, 3, 4; President, Senior Class. Every class needs a leader and Martin has filled that place in ours. He has admirable qualities for leadership. He is loyal, unselfish, and dependable, not given to much ego. Certainly these traits account for his popularity at Andrew Lewis. EUGENE WILLIAMS Literary and Library Club, 3; Dramatic Club, 4; Annual Staff, 4; Typist, 4; Newspaper, 4; Glee Club, 3; Christmas Pageant, 4; Spanish Club, 3; Tennis Team, 4; Senior Play, 4. Eugene’s fine character and good humor has made him popular at Andrew Lewis. His school spirit and love for sports has been shown by his attendance at football, basket ball and other games. He played a leading part in “Berkley Square.” He may not achieve his ambition to become the “world’s champion typist” but his interest in his work will win for him success, we feel sure. WELDON DAVID WIRT Weldon, with his dimples and ready smile, has won for himself quite a number of friends who will find him hard to forget. He says that, primarily, his ambition is to be a bachelor. Secondarily, it seems, he wants to be a busi¬ ness man. The latter will probably be easy compared to the first. RUTH ELIZABETH WRIGHT Literary Club, 2; Home Economics Club, 2, 3; Latin Club, 2 Alert and energetic in her classes, a lover of sports, especially swimming, Ruth, better known as “Pee Wee,” is admired by students and teachers. She too, is secretarily inclined and will join the Andrew Lewis ranks at National next year. VERLIN W. WYGAL Track, 4 This tall, lanky chap is a friend to everyone who knows him. His disposition and reactions in his every day habits seem to create an enormous good feeling toward him. He uses good common sense and by it he has become a math shark and naturalist because of his well-based argu¬ ments. He likes to imitate the songs of birds, so perhaps he will soon become a member of one of Major Bowes’ units. 4 35 CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Vera York Leslie Young George Zimmerman VERA YORK Library Club, 4; Literary Club, 4 We envy students over whom this fair lady rules when her ambition is realized! Quite often silence is golden and in the case of Vera, this is usually true. She is one of our assistant librarians and a good one indeed, so consequently she belongs to the Literary and Library Clubs. She wants to be a teacher after she goes to Harrisonburg College. GEORGE ZIMMERMAN French Club, 3, 4; Football, 3 George will be remembered for his placid, studious qualities. He has taken advantage of the four and one-half years at Andrew Lewis by taking a variety of subjects and making good in all of them. He has joined in the sports with a great deal of enthusiasm and school spirit. We see him taking his diploma from Roanoke College to go out to fill a place of usefulness as an electrical engineer. LESLIE YOUNG Baseball, 3, 4 A baseball player for Andrew Lewis—and a boy who likes to hike—is Leslie. For four years he has been taking the preliminary course in the work of his life choice, to be a Business Manager. From Andrew Lewis he goes for¬ ward toward the completion of his vocation at National Business College. 3n Mnttortam Betty Burwell Smiley April, 1923 — May, 1935 { 36 jfr Education and Success Salutatory, Class of 1938 TT ' RIENDS, Members of the Faculty, and Fellow Students of Andrew A Fewis High School: It is indeed with pleasure that I salute you in behalf of the Class of 1938, and welcome you to our graduation ceremonies here tonight. Four years ago the Class of 1938 started climbing the ladder of our high school career. Up and up we have climbed, and now we have reached the topmost rung— our graduation here tonight. May I not sincerely hope that each one of us will be able to continue our educational training in a higher institution of learning or to enter immediately into the vocation which we wish to follow. Education may be divided into four classes: Intellectual, Moral, Industrial, and Physical. Intellectual education brings out the abilities of a youth and arouses in him the ambition for a successful life. It also aids in the welfare of the state by the development of its public honor and public affairs. Plato once said that neglect of education does harm to the state. Moral education prepares the youth of today to be parents, citizens, and leaders in the social and political activities of tomorrow. Upon the moral education depends the future life of our homes and families and the endurance of our republic. Industrial education fits man to work in the business and industrial arts. Physical education is the fourth, but by no means the least, important type of education. We must be observant of the laws of nature as we are of the laws of the state. Nature has endowed youth with a limited amount of energy which, if over¬ taxed, is certain to end with bad results. Over-studying, without sufficient physical exercise, results in broken health, while if too much time is given to physical pur¬ suits and not enough to study, the brain becomes dull. In any undertaking of life, if we wish to be successful, we should prepare our¬ selves thoroughly for it, for success of luck and untrained ability is the exception rather than the rule. It is now the age when educational and intellectual power is the foundation for a successful career. Fellow classmates, now that you are going from this institution out into the different ways of life, set for yourselves a goal which you hope to reach. Prepare yourself for it and, with self-confidence and determination, you are certain to succeed. And now, as we turn into these new ways and habits of life, we linger a moment to celebrate our departure with appropriate ceremonies, together with happiest recollections of our four years at Andrew Fewis. To all our friends, our guests, and our loved ones, we say—We hail your presence with us! The Class of 1938 salutes you and bids you a most hearty welcome. Ruby Grubb. { 37 } At the Crossroads Valedictory, Class of 1938 E, THE CLASS of 1938, have now reached “the parting of the ways” in our school career. “You to the left and I to the right, For the ways of men must sever-— And it well may be for a day and a night, And it zvell may be forever, But whether we meet or whether we part {For our ways are past our knowing), A pledge from the heart to its felloiv heart On the ways we all are going!—” We should think of this turning point in our lives in terms of the name given the exercises of this occasion—commencement. We should think soberly of our graduation with respect to learning and remember that it is more a graduation in the art of learning how to learn than in learning. This occasion represents to us, the Senior Class, both an ending and a begin¬ ning. It ends one phase of our school career, but it should be the beginning of another. Nevertheless, we can go ahead building on the foundations we have laid, regardless of our future opportunities in respect to education. We shall do well to remember Abraham Lincoln and others of his type, in this connection. Aside from Christian character, there is no asset of more vital importance to us than sound learning, or education. There is an ever-increasing demand for it: In business, in industry, and in social life. There was a time when it was thought, I think rather commonly, that a housewife, a mechanic, or a laborer didn’t need more than the “three R ' s” in education; but that idea, born doubtless of the days of pioneer and simpler life, is fast becoming history. As the world moves on, there must be able men and women to fill the places of the older people—all the way from the simpler life to managers, executives, and leaders. Therefore, may we, the members of this class, ponder these thoughts well, and may we endeavor always to do our best to further develop our talents and to increase our efficiencies to the end that we may spend useful lives and be remem¬ bered among those who have made high contributions to human needs and society. Emerson has said: “There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance ; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better or for worse as his portion. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.” We must make up our minds where we are going. We must remember that it is not the way we go that matters most, but how far we go that way; whether, when we have chosen our way, we acquit ourselves like men. The great task set before us is so to prepare in the days of our youth that in carrying on our work in the world we shall do things well. To do anything worth doing we must have a definite purpose. We must have an aim in life. We must make up our mind what we want to do, how we want to do it, and must let nothing come in our way. Let us see that we aim at a high purpose. In Emerson’s splendid words, let us “hitch our wagon to a star.” We are right to seize every opportunity that will help us accomplish our purpose. To do this we must be mentally alert. When opportunity comes along, we must not be asleep, as was David Swan, the boy in Hawthorne’s famous allegory, when opportunity knocked three times and found him asleep. Just a few things in conclusion: We try, as far as possible, to avoid the atmosphere that surrounds a valediction but, if there is such a thing as a pleasant or happy kind of farewell, it must be known only to the man who takes leave of the proverbial mother-in-law. I could not consider my duty complete without including in this address a genuine expression of appreciation to each and all who have been our helpers, our instructors, and our guardians throughout our school days. Now that we, the Class of 1938, have spent our full four years climbing the high school ladder, we pause on its pinnacle, with a feeling of reluctance, to bid our Alma Mater a gracious farewell. 38 Mildred Atkinson.

Even during the “lean” years, with poor material to work with, he turned out teams of which Andrew Lewis was ever proud, for their fine sportsmanship and clean, fighting spirit. We, zvho have been associated with him, join together in expressing appre¬ ciation for his faithful work. U NDER the able coaching of Mr. Denton and Gus Quisito, the Andrew Lewis football team had one of the most successful seasons of recent years. The season started off with a 47 to 0 massacre of Christiansburg, followed by another triumph, a 19 to 6 victory over Graham High. This was an especially meaningful event, due to the fact that Graham had not been defeated or scored on in two years. Then came two heart-breaking, one-point defeats at the hands of Clifton Forge and Lynchburg, defeats in which the runback of a kick-off and an intercepted pass scored the de¬ cisive points. The squad took its first trip to play Charlottesville, whom they defeated by the score of 2 to 0, a score that belied the real nature of the game. Andrew Lewis moved deep into Char¬ lottesville’s territory many times but just didn’t seem to have the extra punch needed to score. Then came that eventful day, October 30th, at Maher Field, the climax of the season—the smashing victory over Jefferson—the victory that every member of the squad knew would be ours. The small, light line of Wolverines, fighting like demons, dropped the Magician backs in their tracks again and again. Lewis hung tenaciously to an early lead until the final whistle. The game was won by excellent playing on the part of every member of the team. We took the only scoring opportunity and scored. There were no passes, which was unexpected for Jefferson. Jim Brown, with the other members blocking furiously for him, made it possible for Bruce Whitlock to cough up the only touchdown of the day with a thrilling twenty-yard gallop across the Magicians’ goal line. The following Saturday the squad (mostly the “subs”) defeated Vinton to the tune of 20 to 6. The last games with Portsmouth and Danville were not so successful as to scores, but were well- fought games. The ’38 football year, as a whole, has been a rather gratifying one.

Third Row —Bernard Graybill, Rufus Bowman, Bill Cyphers, Harold Shelor, Kenneth Huff, Jack Dame, Manager, and D. E. Denton, Coach. 54 Basket Ball Howard —He was the smallest man on the team, yet one of the best ball han¬ dlers. We are looking forward to a fine prospect in Howard in the coming years. Paul McGhee— Although one of the small¬ est centers in high school basket ball, he stood up to the best of them. Paul will be back next year. David Oakey— Although he didn’t see much action, he came through when the going was tough. David is a senior. Jack Marmaduke— Jack, the most improved player on the team, will be back next year scrapping for a “first string berth.” David Rucker, Captain —His ability to shoot with either hand enabled him to lead the scoring attack with 81 points. He proved his right to the captaincy by his excellent floormanship. Preston Reynolds —Never having played basket ball before this year, Preston proved his ability and should be one of the “main cogs” in the attack next year. J. Willard Brubaker— Although size was against him, he was one of the best passers on the team. Jay will be back for another year. Jack Thomas —He was one of the hardest workers on the team and a fine prospect. Jack will be lost by graduation. Robert Lambert— He is just about tops when it comes to guarding his man and his floor work was outstanding. Bob has another year and great things are expected of him. Jack Dame, Manager. { 55 } • Bruce Whitlock —His left-handed shot was deadly and difficult to guard. “Hook,” lost by graduation, will be sorely missed. Girls’ Basket Ball Jean Maxwell, Guard —Lewis will lose a grand sport as well as an excellent guard when Jean graduates this year. Jean could always be counted on to hold up her part of the team and whenever it was lacking in spirit she was there to help uplift it. Eva Jane Doughman, Guard (not pictured) —Eva Jane has made an excellent guard for Lewis and will be lost this year by graduation. “Doughman” could always be expected to break up numerous dribbles that were made by her opposing forward. Frances Stoutamire, Guard and Forward — “Fuzzy” played two stellar positions this year, receiving a berth on the Second All- County Team. Frances proved that a level head is essential to a good player. She will be lost by graduation and Lewis will have a difficult time filling her position. Frances Harrison, Forward. Frances will be back next year to help pile up the points for Lewis. She has an excellent one-hand pass which, with a little practice, will be a dead shot. Good luck, “Harrison.” Nell White, Captain, Jump Center — Re¬ warded at the end of the season with a post on the All-County sextet. Nell furnished the psychological incentive of a winning team. Her floor generalship and consistent ball-handling marked her as the sparkplug of the Andrew Lewis team. Mary Elizabeth Hale, Center —Though Mary Elizabeth didn’t play in very many games this year she will be back next year to contest for a better position on the varsity team. Mary Lofland, Forivard —Mary has been a dependable player and though she didn’t make the first squad, she is expected to help them next year. Good luck, Mary, and many goals next year ! Miss Staples Persinger, Coach — Miss Per- singer has been a grand coach to the Lewis varsity teams. She has demonstrated great patience with all the players and has taken the losses as well as the victories well. Jean Ann Wilfong, Side Center — Jean Ann will be back at Lewis next year and will be one of the main sparks of the team. She played a good game this year and will be counted on to help the team bring in many honors next year. Caroline Maxwell, Assistant Coach— Caro¬ line was an outstanding player when she was a member of the Lewis varsity team. She came back this year to help develop sportsmanship and good playing, a great quality of hers. Myra Bunting, Manager— Myra has been all that a team could ask for in a manager. She was always patient and considerate to the whines of the team. Myra proved that a good manager must always be willing to listen as well as talk. { 56 } Junior Varsity Frances Harrison Frances Stoutamire Mary Lofland Nell White Jean Ann Wilfong Jean Maxwell Eva Jane Doughman Eleanor Waddell Lirby Myers Charlotte Coleman Mary Shepherd Hazel Sykes Eileen Sale Fay Beatty Hettie Cunningham Polly Mowles Dorothy Jane Hodges Elizabeth McGhee Arlene Whitticar Dorothy Grice Myra Bunting Baseball D.

The first two games, with Bedford and Radford, played on our home field, resulted in victories for Andrew Lewis. Andrew Lewis defeated Bedford 11 to 3 and Radford 7 to 2. Games with Vinton and William Fleming were canceled because of rain. The squad made a two-day trip to Danville, which was unsuccessful as far as baseball goes. Danville Military Institute defeated us 7 to 3 and Danville High defeated us 4 to 3, in a game in which Lewis’s pitcher, Dickerson, allowed only five hits and struck out ten. Mr. Denton said that it was one of the finest exhibitions of high school pitching he had ever seen. Dickerson also pitched Lewis to a 11 to 2 victory over Bedford in a game there. Remaining on the schedule, as The Pioneer goes to press, are ten games yet to be played. { 58 Jim Spiggle. Track James Spiggle. .. Harvey Apperson D. E. Denton. .. Asbury Maury. . Paul Solaski .... .

The first meet, against Clifton Forge, was won by a score of 59-31, all but two first places being captured by Andrew Lewis, with a tie for another first. The second meet, with Jefferson, was lost by a score of 615 2 - 45 2 . Andrew Lewis took all first places in field events, while Jefferson took all firsts in running events. They gained enough seconds and thirds to defeat us. The third meet, a hotly contested battle with Ferrum Training School, ended with the score 64 -56 2 in our favor. Remaining on the schedule are the county meet, April 30, and th e state meet, May 7, to which Lewis will send several men. 4 59 Sophomore and Freshman Home Presidents (Members of the Student Council ) Book Three CLUBS ORGANIZATIONS Activities The Pioneer HE PIONEER staff has had an unusually active and enjoyable year, under the leadership of competent “Peggy” Schuler, Editor, and her faithful counselor, Mrs. Taylor Turner. The hours spent on the production of the ’38 annual have been a pleasure because of the fine spirit of cooperation among the staff members. They will feel amply re¬ warded if the students like the book. Regular staff meetings have been held after school, once a week, since early fall. All persons on the staff have given willingly of their time outside school hours, because they were interested and not afraid of work. Under Mrs. Turner’s close supervision, Martin Wilbourne, Circulation Manager, and his assistants, Eva Jane Doughman, Reginald Jonas and Bob Saul, rolled up a score of more than six hundred copies, which surpasses any of previous years and offers an interesting challenge to managers in the future, while “Gib” Maxwell, Business Manager, and his energetic co-workers, Cabell Brand, Keister Greer and Bill Bradshaw handled the advertising in an equally successful manner. Mrs. Early acted as treasurer in her usual efficient manner. Mr. Wellons has been a valuable accession to the staff, serving as Art Adviser to June Hoover, Art Editor. Mr. Broadwater has, as always, been ever ready to give his services when needed. Stark Higginbotham has made an alert Activities Editor, Nell White and Jim Spiggle, active Sports Editors, and Mac Hough, a capable Senior Editor. Tom Mullin and Henry Wood derived much pleasure from the snapshot work. Assistant Editors Helen Chewning, Eleanor Folk and Alda Ruth Johnson have obtained good experience for next year. Scribes Esther Clark, June Stevenson, Margaret Cheatham, Mildred Atkinson and Dan Smiley have enjoyed contacting the muses in their efforts to portray the seniors. Typists Catherine Camp¬ bell, Eugene Williams and Ruth Wright have performed their duties faithfully. Mary Patton, assisted by Alice Lindsey, found it real fun arranging the pictures. Sophomore Editors Bettie Peters and Jean Wilfong were eager to fulfill any duty assigned them, as were Mary Ellen Darst and Evelyn Taylor Smith, Fresh¬ man representatives. Editor Schuler, Mrs. Turner and ten other members represented The Pioneer at the Southern Inter¬ scholastic Press Convention in Lexington in October, at which time the publication became a member of the Association. School News A T THE beginning of the second L semester of the past school year a class in journalism, composed of twenty- one members, was organized for the first time at Andrew Lewis. Since then this class has been responsible for the publica¬ tion of the “Andrew Lewis High School News” in the Salem Timcs-Register, pub¬ lished weekly by Mr. J. H. Thornton. Previous to its organization, the publica¬ tion of the high school news was an extra¬ curricular project in school journalism, carried on after school hours. Representatives of the staff attended the Southern Interscholastic Press Convention at Lexington, Octo¬ ber 29th and 30th. They brought back much information and many new ideas by which they might improve their paper. During the football season the staff sold refreshments at several of the games and, together with the Beta Club, sponsored the presentation of " Hamlet,” November 5th. Carl Gottschalk.

Strickler Mrs. Ethel S. Shockey Miss Elizabeth Sutherland Miss Adf.lle Moore 65 }E Girl Reserves Miss Pauline Webb, Sponsor Twelve new members, juniors and seniors only, were taken into the Girl Reserves last fall and their advent celebrated by a combined initiation banquet and Christmas party. As soon as the initiation ceremonies were over, they put their heads together and planned how they would play Santa Claus to some family in the community, this being an old custom. To break the monotony of the winter months, February 12th was fixed as the night for a co-ed dance. ’Mid white and red colors to carry out the Valentine theme, they say “a good time was had by all.” But the real highlight of the year was the spring formal, which was given with the Hi-Y on May 6th, to the music of the “Virginia Swingsters.” This final event closed the season of ’37-’38 with great merriment. Home Economics Club The Home Economics Club has been one of the most active clubs in school during this past term. The first function sponsored by the club was an initiation party for new members, which was held a short time after the club was organized. At the close of the football season, a banquet was given for the football players and their coach. The spring social was a kid party. A dance has been planned and will serve as the spring formal. Those who do not dance will take part in outdoor activities, such as hiking or skating. There are sixty-one members in this club. Miss Christine Hailey is faculty adviser. The officers are : President, Geraldine Keith; Vice President, Lottie Helms; Secretary, Eleanor Jo Lemon; Treasurer, Sarah Greenwood, and Song Leader, Mildred Carper. { 66 }• Hi-Y Club Mr. J. E. Oglesby, Sponsor In January, 1938, the Hi-Y reorganized with an opening banquet, entertaining practically all the members. At this banquet the following officers were elected : Ralph Ramsey, President; Bob Carper, Vice President; Paul Solaski, Secretary, and Bob Saul, Treasurer. Mr. Oglesby is faculty adviser. The true aim of the Hi-Y is to create, maintain and extend, through the school and community, a higher standard of Christian character—a cause far nobler and more challenging than any to which the knights of old pledged allegiance. Salem Chapter F. F. A. Mr. E. A. Harding, Sponsor The Future Farmers of America is the national organization of farm boys studying vocational agriculture in the public high schools throughout the United States. Through the leadership of these boys we may expect a new agriculture—an agriculture lighted by science and organized to demand an equal share with industry in the country’s general prosperity. Rural leadership is the outstanding need of the hour. It will continue to be the greatest need in the future. Our leaders, who live up to the F. F. A. motto, cannot fail in this task. “Learning to do-—doing to learn—earning to live—living to serve. " Senior Choral Club It has been said that music washes away the dust of everyday life. Believing that the knowl¬ edge and appreciation of music has a definite value in the life of an individual, the Roanoke County School Board made provision for in¬ struction in music at Andrew Lewis High School for the first time in 1934, with Mrs. G. G. Peery in charge. This year the Music Department has an enrollment of two hundred and twenty-five students. The group presented a Christmas pageant in December and a sacred concert in May. The Senior Choral Club gave a patriotic pro¬ gram in November ; a Thanksgiving program ; sang for the S. C. A. Convention in Roanoke ; broadcast over WDBJ ; appeared before the P. T. A. and, as a climax of the year, gave the operetta, “Miss Cherry Blossom,” in April. Andrew Lewis High School Band Much progress has been made by the Andrew Lewis High School Band since its organization in 1936. It has become an important part of the school, adding pep and encouragement to our athletic teams and increasing our school spirit. Under the excellent direction of its capable lead¬ er, Mr. L. Christensen, the band is adept in march and concert music. We are proud of our band and think it deserves the interest of the school and community. French Club The French Club, of which all French students are members, has spent an interesting and in¬ structive year. The officers for the year were Dan Smiley, President; June Hoover, Vice President; Dorothy Lewis, Secretary-Treasurer, and Miss Wood, Faculty Adviser. In December the club held a French tea at which the members received the names and addresses of French students studying English, with whom they are corresponding. During the meetings the club learned French songs and the members presented several short plays. Art Club Mr. William Wellons, Sponsor The love of beauty and the ability to see the beautiful in life around us definitely adds to the joy of living. Feeling that the Fine Arts should have a definite place in our High School, we ventured to organize an Art Club this year. While our meetings have been few and our progress for this reason perhaps a little slow, we have at least enjoyed working and watching our creations take on material form while still reflecting the deep colors of a soul. It is our sincere hope that this venture will prove an idea planted in receptive minds and that the classes to come after us will take up our palettes and add bright colors to a dull canvas, knowing we made a sincere beginning. Literary Contestants In the picture at right are the students that represented Andrew Lewis in literary events during this year. They are, left to right, front row: Rebecca Yeatts, sight reading; Cabell Brand, debate; Betty Turner and Eleanor Folk, winners of debating cup at Radford; Faye Beatty, debate; Betty Peters, Radford public speaker; Dorothy Emory, University public speaker; second row: Helen Chewning, mem¬ orized reading; Keister Greer, Manley Tobey, Bob Carper and John Kinzie, debaters; Mar¬ garet Schuler, vocal music ; Esther Clark, spell¬ er ; third row : Mrs. Strickler and Mrs. Shockey, faculty advisers; Bob Powell, declamation at Emory and Henry; Mac Whitmore, University public speaker; Miss Southerland and Miss Moore, also faculty advisers. Dramatics Mr. William Wcllons, Sponsor The searching for props—the hustle and bustle of the stage crew—the smell of grease paint— lines worked over and over again for just the right shade of meaning —rehearsals—witty jests of actors, by nature keen, intelligent and high-strung—the breath-taking feeling of void emptiness that comes as one awaits his first cue—and from it all has come loads of fun and many happy events that the tide of time cannot wash into the sea of forgetfulness. The play must go on—are we ready? House lights off—floods up—curtain! Aviation Club Mr. E. B.
