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

' 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

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 }
