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. Roanoke College will receive great things in you, Sara RALPH RAMSEY Ralph or “Pudding” as many call him is one of our quiet and reserved seniors. His slow and easy manner has won him many friends in high school. He enjoys all sports, especially tennis and football. He also likes to dance. He plans to enter Roanoke College next year and to attend some other college perhaps later to study banking and engineering. MARIAM ROSE POFF Glee Club, 2; Senior Choral, 4 During her four years of high school Mariam has par¬ ticipated in Glee Club and finally Senior Choral Club. Her hobby is sketching, her ambition to be an artist and better than anything else she likes a laugh. She expects to attend Business College and may some day become a secretary. 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. A., 2, 3, 4; President, 4; Treasurer, 3; Dramatic, 4. Now here is a fellow who’s ideals are high, And whose would be if he weren’t going to V. P. I. 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.

Luther W. Nicar Emily N. Owen Lucille Nichols Gladys Louise Oyler David Ramsey Oakey Lee Wilson Palmer Miriam Eldridge Oakey Virginia Parker Eva Lillian Overstreet Mary Patton DAVID RAMSEY OAKEY Hi-Y, 3; Art Club, 4; Monogram, 4; Football, 4; Basket Ball, 3, 4; Spanish Club, 3. David is well known everywhere in Salem and is a jolly good friend to every one, especially to his boy friends. He is a good athlete and has shown his good qualities in the athletics in which he has taken part. He has also shown talent in art. His ambition is to become an engineer in some line. He has what it takes to do something of this sort if he continues to study for it. MIRIAM ELDRIDGE OAKEY Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club, 2, 4; French Club, 3, 4 Miriam has a cheerful smile and a pleasant word for all. She enjoys reading, swimming, and dancing. With her light, tripping step, her jolly nature and her high am¬ bitions, our “Helen of Troy” will find much joy in life as she gives her best in her chosen work as a Home Economics teacher. 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. Her ambition is to be a nurse and she should be an excellent one, because beneath that quiet dignity is real ability. EMILY N. 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. Her ambition is to live a successful life. When she starts a task she usually finishes it. She has taken a commercial course and hopes to be a stenographer some day. GLADYS LOUISE OYLER Gladys Oyler, a blond with a pleasing personality has attended Andrew Lewis High for the past three years. She likes the commercial side of her curriculum best. 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. Virginia gradu¬ ated at mid-term and since then has been missed by all of her friends. MARY PATTON Newspaper Staff, 2, 3; Associate Editor, 4; Latin Club, 1; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4; Literary Club, 2, 3; Annual Staff, 3; Photograph Editor, 4; President, Sophomore Class. 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 )

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. He is a genial and likable boy, always a friend indeed. We prophesy for him success in his chosen work, bookkeeping, because he has what it takes to succeed in any line—determination and perseverance. He is also ambitious and eager to grasp every opportunity to learn new things. His hobbies are hiking and ornithology. Glee Club, 2, 3, 4; Home Economics Club, 3, 4; Literary Club, 3, 4. As the old saying goes,“Precious things come in small pack¬ ages.” This is Rachel. She is small but mighty. Her desire after finishing high school, is to attend Radford State Teachers College. 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. Dave has a multitude of friends at Andrew Lewis. He has made excellent showings on the hardwood. With his relying force and accuracy he aided the Wolverines to a number of their victories. His sportmanship and school spirit has well pleased his friends who shall find it hard to forget him. MARGARET SCHULER Choral Club, 3, 4; French Club, 3, 4; Literary Club, 3; Beta Club, 3, 4; Girl Reserves, 3, 4; Neivspaper Staff, 3; Editor of The Pioneer, 4; Operetta, 3, 4; Senior Play, 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 ELLEN SAUL Glee Club, 1, 2; Home Economics Club, 4; Home Economics Vice President, 4; Free Trip to National 4-II Club Con¬ vention in Chicago, Basket Ball, 3. 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 }
