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.

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 }

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
