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.

CLASS OF THIRTY-EIGHT Katie C. M. 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.
