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 }■

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

' 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. Ruth Elizabeth Wright ’ J Verlin W. Wygal FOREST WIMMER Basket Ball, 3, 4; Captain, 4; Baseball, 2, 3, 4; Dramatic Club, 4; Latin Club, 1; Literary, 2, 3; French Club, 3, 4; Annual, 3, 4; Sports Editor, 4; Newspaper, 3, 4; Girl Reserves, 2, 3, 4. 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
