Clay Models by Van Gelder Photograph by Wood ★ ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ ASTERPIECES of art in sculpture and painting have been produced throughout the ages which perpetuate for the world great moments—moments of glory or moments of suffering which stir the human soul. Verses have been written and melodies created which inspire the soul of man to noble thoughts and actions. Books have been written which immortalize great mo¬ ments in the history of mankind. We, THE PIONEER STAFF, have sought to capture and record for you, the students of Andrew Lewis High School, the rapture of such a moment—a moment which you yourselves have made as you went on “striving, seeking, finding,” each day. We present the 1939 Pioneer, the story of “A Day in School,” with the wish that it may glorify for you the moment and enable you to hold forever the joy that was yours in making it.

Our spacious Lewis Halls are scenes of laughter, cheer and gayety, as friends rush to and fro greeting friends, pausing for brief conversations by locker doors. Passing the office door where a long line is waiting we hear a familiar voice, “Is that your mother’s signature?” A glance at the clock warns that there are only two minutes in which to get to Home Room. Sud¬ denly all is quiet. The halls are vacant. The hilarity of the moment has disappeared as if by magic. “Lucifer Lewis” “Present” “Marie, your excuse, please.” “Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom”— “Of course, none of us expect to miss the Jefferson Game. Will the Home Room President get the tickets from Mr. Oglesby, please.” “The principal would like to see John Smith and Rufus Roe in the office, please.” The bell sounds. Again, the halls resound with mirth for a brief five minutes. IN OUR SCHOOL LIFE 9 till 9:15 Clay Models by Van Gelder Photograph by Wood A SENIOR REVIEWS A TYPICAL DAY IN SCHOOL This morning I arrive earlier than usual for today is Friday which means that the newspapers must be delivered to the various home rooms. A moment later, passing along the first floor, newspapers tucked under my arm, I look over the Senior Class in general. How much we have changed from the squirming, giggling freshmen we were four years ago! Can we ever forget those memorable days at Broad Street High before we entered Andrew Lewis as sophomores? So very much has happened in that brief span of years that it is difficult to realize that even we, the Class of ’39, are donning cap and gown. Tempus fugit! Suddenly a loud blast from the hall interrupts my pleasant reverie. Not the nine o’clock bell—it can’t be, but it is—- and I haven’t started to deliver my papers. I’ll have to hurry! I am in English Literature Class now, eagerly watching the progress of “Hamlet” under “teacher’s” direction. I study my nearby classmates. While one of the pupils is swinging her locker key on what must be a five-foot string, another is dozing peacefully. How comfortable he looks! Another young man, a member of our Annual Staff, is arranging his candid camera in order to catch a characteristic pose of our professor impersonating the great Hamlet. Ready, aim, fire!— Yes, he really got a good pose. But at the sound of the next bell, we are in the hall again amid the chatter about Trig Class, the latest “stumper” in Geometry, the happenings in Sociology, and most recent Civics test. Second period finds us in English Grammar Class struggling quietly with a test. As my gaze out the window views the beautiful new addition to our building, I can but wonder how this high school will look ten years from now! Do, re, me, fa, sol—we’re in Music Class now getting “warmed up” for some real singing. What fun we’ve had in Music Class! Shall we ever forget “Pickles,” that grand operetta two years ago, which was followed up by “Miss Cherry- blossom” last year, and ’39’s “Oh Doctor!” And the trips our Music Club has enjoyed! The memories of these, as well as the songs, will live in our hearts forever. When the next bell sounds, the mad dash for the cafeteria begins. At the lunch table the events of the day form the subject for discussion. “Do you know what happened in Algebra 4, today . . . You don’t say. . . Wasn’t that cute? . . . Yes, I mean it . . . etc., etc.” A little later we stroll up to the first floor for a view of our classmates. Oh, excuse me—(I just bumped into some one.) Next is “Lovers Lane.” (In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to-?) Lunch is over and we pass on to Chemistry Class. Suddenly I remember that an experiment is today’s assignment. “Only five more minutes, you’d better hurry,” says the instructor. “Did you hear that? We have only five more minutes to finish this crazy experiment. What—the hydrochloric acid? Heavens, I poured it out. I thought it was water. You say the Bunser burner won’t light? Let’s get a light from Mickey. Now, why won’t this litmus paper turn blue? No wonder—we’ve done the wrong experiment!” At this part of the day, fifth period, we turn our thoughts aside from studies to our extra-curricula activities. On Friday, assemblies usually occupy the time—and speaking of assemblies, remember the Dramatic Club’s production of “The Red Lamp,” the acrobats from University of Virginia, The Pioneer Staff’s Amateur Hour, which presented some of Lewis’ “Men of Brawn,” and numerous other enjoyable occasions? On Thursdays, the various clubs meet and hold programs. Usually on the other days, we study (?) in our home rooms. We’re in French Class now, translating “Labbe Constantin.” As I gaze out the window, however, my mind unwit¬ tingly wanders far from French. Yes, our four years of high school have been full of gala occasions. Going back a few years—the Jeff.-Lewis game when we cheered our team on to victory. We’ll win again soon, we feel, and that’s a challenge to the team of 1940 and all the teams to come. “The Blue and White will wave on high!” And then, we’ll never forget our Senior Play—that rip-roaring comedy, “The Patsy.” In this same class are those tournaments of public speaking and debating that helped put Lewis “on the map.” The publications of our alma mater— The Pioneer and Andrew Lewis News —we salute not only their editors but also the staffs. May they continue to hold high the standards for which they are known. Last, but far from least, we pay tribute to our teachers—those ladies and gentlemen of the faculty who patiently and kindly have guided our faltering footsteps over four years. They deserve a great deal more praise than we are capable of giving them. And our classmates—the boys and girls of our own age with whom we have worked and played—we shall never fail to connect them with the happiest days of our lives. We have come to the end of the trail. Behind us the sun is setting—the sun of our high school career. But there will be another sun rising as a new day in our lives. It is this new day we eagerly anticipate. Let come what may, we shall never lose sight of high school days. . . Horrors! Is she talking to me? “Ma’am? I’m sorry. I didn’t hear you. Yes’m, I have my book open—well, maybe not to the right page. Translate? Ah, ah, yes’m.” The bell! Thank heavens, just in time. A day in school is ended! —Eleanor C.

A reminder from the rear that we were having an English test quickly brought me to my senses. Three—four—five minutes passed. Time staggered on, drawing me nearer and nearer my doom. Oh Fate, what hast thou in store for a little girl who doesn’t let studying interfere with her education! Teacher gave me a very kindly smile as I entered the classroom which made me feel just a wee bit guiltier than before. When she began to put up that test, my agony really began. For one hour the brainstorm raged and at last came the blessed bell releasing me. I took two or three steps in the hall and suddenly found myself surrounded. “Did she really give you a test? Hard? ’Djew flunk?” Each question was succeeded by wails from those innocent little butterflies. Indeed, they had my most heartfelt sympathy. Finally I managed to wade through the crowd to French class—“Comment allez-vous, mademoiselle!” Irregular verbs rattled off my tongue. “Ah, vous savez votre lecon tres bien!” A kind word helps a lot, doesn’t it? Then third period in choral class, I was a shining light. For the first time in my life I hit high “A” with the greatest of ease. But I thought the remarks from that senior with such a superiority complex about my not feeling well were both baffling and uncalled for. Mrs. Peery said something about strained, screeching notes, but I guess she meant the girl beside me. Can you imagine how happy I was? I always have thought lunch time about the most delightful part of the day (that is, except breakfast and supper time). I contributed my share of rare and juicy gossip, as usual. After I had finished my lunch I made a tour through the halls to observe some of the bleeding hearts. The first thing I saw was that a cer¬ tain young man’s fancy had lightly turned to thoughts of blonds! (grrrrr—rrr) I tried to shut out such a heart-rending sight by retiring to the Cafeteria (ice cream sandwiches sometimes help). The sound of the bell marked the renewal of the eternal grind. Feeling a little depressed, I marched to history class. There under Commandress Moore we fought the Civil War again. I was dozing—the South was gaining her victory—confusion —turmoil—and then the hammerings from the workshop awakened me in time to hear the announcements: “The following clubs will meet in etc., etc.” Fortunately, I had prepared my geometry homework for Sixth Period. I went to Debating Club and thence to Geometry class. The instructor asked me to explain a problem to the class. I timidly crept to the board. My tottering reputation fell as I realized my shortcomings in math. Disgustedly she explained the situation. “Young lady, when you can read with seventh grade intelligence, you can work any problem in this book!” I meekly sank in my seat, red with confusion and embarrassment. After school I was standing at my locker. I saw him approaching—without the blond—he was going to speak to me—could I be dreaming? “Basket ball game tonite?” “Y-Y-Yes, sure, I mean I reckon so!” “Isn’t life wonderful?” I gasped. Bettie C.

V. »• • m ' Jm f 1 - - 4K j A S ophomore s Day in School Regardless of the “isms” at home and abroad, I have accepted “sophism” as my creed for the year, for I am now a wise Sophomore. I have advanced from the status of protected to protector, and no longer do I seek the advice of others but am ready and willing to initiate the timid, “star¬ gazing” little Freshmen into the secret lore of Andrew Lewis life. At last—on October 9—I have been able to settle down to the hustle-bustle of our daily routine. When the first bell rings, there is a rushing and clamoring for the different home rooms to answer roll call. In ten minutes, the next bell sends me scurrying on my way to History class where I must get all the information about the New Deal, etc. The next period I must pass in study. But am I always in the mood to study? How glad my home room teacher must be to get rid of me on the days that I take gym and what a strenuous hour of acrobatic stunts are there performed! The bell! Alas, I am doomed! Geometry! Woe unto me when I am told to go to the board and bisect an angle. Why can I not look wise? But poor me—no bluffing—my blank expression betrays me. Aly spirits mount again for the summons to lunch is gladly heard. Then to the Frenchy section of the building (oh, if one could only observe the French custom of greeting each other, the class would be too large to teach)! Assembly next with our capable principal presiding. Last but not least, I go and absorb the pleasing personality and manner of my English teacher. My Sophomore day has come to a close. I can look back and survey my failures and successes with sufficient pride, for I have profited by all. And in two years I shall be a Senior!

To class—English, mathematics, science, history, or Latin—each sleepily but joyfully winds his way. And so, throughout the day, Father Time keeps his faithful vigil and sounds the hourly warning that marks the transi¬ tion from Caesar’s Gallic Wars to the click of the typewriter; from a study of Hitler’s most recent move in Europe to slay the king and die the Martyr’s death with Hamlet; from mak¬ ing HNO3 to prove that a straight line is the shortest distance between two points. And thus we are guided by the hands of the clock till the day is done.

It is the time that “Lucifer Lewis” snoozes peacefully in home room, goes to his clubs with springing step, or reports to assembly to be reminded by the principal that Andrew Lewis High School will not tolerate “loafers who are just killing time” in this, the finest student body in the State; and that, therefore, he must try earnestly to pass his courses or make room for others who do want to work, etc. In assembly, also, he is told by a renowned speaker that these, his High School Days, are the best of his life, and that he should take advantage of every opportunity. Back to the last class of the day goes “Lucifer,” resolved that he will put a little more time on that Trigonometry for tomorrow.

For some the day is ended. The halls and grounds are filled with these, chatting over the events that have occurred, and saying goodbye until tomorrow. But for many, the ringing of the bell has not finished school activities. Those who go out for sports hasten to the gym or athletic field. The speakers and debaters must meet their faculty advisers for special conferences, as must the club presidents (not forgetting the Editor of The Pioneer). Above all, the High School News MUST be ready for Friday! Tired faculty members assemble in 102 to confer on the brilliancies and idiosyncracies of the thirteen hundred whom they have tried to instruct during the day, as well as to plan schedules, etc. Last, but not least, the Business Manager of The Pioneer puts in an afternoon of work, writing up the adver¬ tisements which business friends have given him. Thus, for all, the happy duties of a day are ended—when? IN OUR SCHO OL LIFE 3:30 on- Clay Model by Van Gelder Photograph by Wood An Athlete Day in School “Listen here you big bum, get up!” These are the first words that strike my ears on the bright and sunny morning of “blue” Monday. As these words roll up the steps from my big brother, I know that I had better move. Out of the bed, I glance at the clock—“Gosh!”—twenty minutes until nine. Into the shower, out, clothes on, downstairs and eating breakfast in five minutes (cutting off a minute and a half from Friday’s record). “Oh, Mom, have you seen my books? Never mind, here they are.” (Right where I left them Friday evening.) Yelling a good-bye to every one I run down the street and up the school steps just as the 9:00 o’clock bell rang. I rush into home room in time to answer “here” to the roll call. “O, heck, I don’t have my Trig.” “Hey, Van, got cha Trig?” “No?” “Hubert, you wouldn’t have yours?” Then to class. “ ‘Miss Annie,’ I’m sorry, but I went to church last night, and I didn’t get home until late and—etc.” Out of Trig and down to the gym door. “Hi ya’boys, what’s new?” “Nothing, you big hunk of balony,” was their sharp reply. “Why didn’t ya catch Burr’s pass Saturday? It would have given us the game.” “Now listen, fellas, that heave was a mile over my head.” (Oh, shucks, what’s the use of trying to get out of that sloppy playing?) “Oops,” bell time. Upstairs to lab to study gases, acids, etc. Gee, but the view is fine from here. “I’m sorry, Miss Webb, I’ll pay attention.” At last—Third period! To the library and pleasant sleep. “Aw, Mrs. Bennett, I wasn’t sleeping. Yes’m, I’ll leave.” Down the corridor just as the whistle blows. “Hi ya, ‘Square,’ let’s go over to the Rhythm Clyb and eat lunch.” After lunch I go back over to the school to hear the latest bull session with P. Whitlock and D. J. taking charge. After waiting for the last bell to ring I slip into English to see if “Hamlet” has really been killed. Fifth period sees me at Mrs. Easter’s desk giving a pitiful tale about seeing Coach. After much try¬ ing I am given a pass and down to the dressing room I go. After talking to Coach until the bell rings, I then race upstairs to Mr. Peters’ room for physics. Get there just in time to remember that we are having a test. After flunking the quiz, we all sit around and hear another bull session with Mullins taking the lead and his side-kick, “Tailspin,” helping out with some airplanes. At last the bell, which gives me the signal to dress for practice. Out on the field the boys are taking their laps so I fall in. After laps, Coach lets us punt a few and then he starts giving us the works—pull ups, push ups, etc. “Gosh, am I tired?” After practicing our pass defense, Coach hollers, “O K, you guys, let’s see what you know on signals.” (Gosh, I forgot to study mine last night.) In formation we start running signals with me carrying the ball. Gee, what do I do with it? “Aw right, see, what are you going to do, play ring around the roses with that ball? Throw it here! Now get out of there and take 15 laps and maybe by that time you’ll remember to study signals.” These words come from the Coach, and “Boy, do I feel cheap!” By the time I have finished my laps the squad is through blocking and tackling work-outs, so we start the scrimmage. It seems like every time there is a pile up, I am always on bottom. “Umps!” Came pretty near bustin’ a knee that time. Back in formation the ball is snapped with “Admiral” yelling, “Gimme the ball! Gimme the ball!” Scrimmage over, we take our laps and race for the showers. “Hey, Mack, cut off that cold water, what do ya want me to do—take pneumonia?” “Fred, throw me the soap. Not in my eye, ya dope.” Coach’s signal now comes to shut off the showers, so the gang dresses and starts up the street. As we come to my house I say, “So long,” and go into the house to ask Mom when supper will be ready. “Pretty soon,” she says, so I turn on the radio. “Hi Yo, Silver—Away,” suddenly bursts from the speaker. I listen to the exciting story until Dad comes in and starts talking. Just then Mom calls us to supper. Afterwards I decide to go down to the Recreation Center. Wandering down slowly, I meet up with Apey and Brown, who are going down to Bob’s, so I fall in with them. After talking over the day’s experiences I think it best to go home and study, so I leave about 8:30. Upon reach¬ ing home I go to get my books, but the thought strikes me that I can study in the morning—before breakfast—so upstairs I go to dream of Saturday’s game. Joe Thomas They Furnish Pep for the Games Myra Bunting Alice McGhee Bea Armstrong Helen Chewning Blanche Gray James Ferris Reginald Jonas 1938 FOOTBALL With the able assistance and excellent advice of Mr. Peters, formerly of Wake Forest, to our already strong coaching staff composed of Mr. Denton, Gus Quisito and assisted by the return of eight letter men, Andrew Lewis made a remarkable showing this year in spite of the loss of Gus, who left us for a better job, in mid¬ season, and the wet fields and heavier teams that our boys had to face. The first game of the season was a 14 to o victory over William Fleming, fol¬ lowed by an upset from Newport News due to the fact that the Shipbuilders outweighed us and that they played one of the best games of their season. Also the accurate passing ability of the Newport News lads helped them to leave us holding the small end of 32 to o. Then came the tight game at Bluefield with Jim Brown’s accurate drop kick saving us by 3 to o. In spite of this victory it was a fatal day for us because many of our boys were hurt so badly that they could not play for several weeks; there¬ fore, we were defeated by Clifton Forge. The next game found us with a hard- fought victory over Charlottesville, due to the amazing defense of Capt. Bob Lambert and John Gleason who, we believe, will develop into one of the best line-backers in this part of the state. The following week we played the State Champions from Lynchburg. This was a very tight game, climaxed by a 77-yard run by Paul McGhee in the last minutes of the game, only to be called back because he stepped outside. Then the biggest tilt of the year—our annual fight with Jefferson. Led by Reynolds, Whitlock, and Marmaduke, the mud-caked Wolverines would have held the Magicians except for a fatal penalty that placed Jefferson too near our goal. The stout little line held as long as their endurance would allow them, but the Roanokers pushed over for a 7 to o win. Our only night game was dropped to Alexandria. The muddy field and the heavy weight of the Presidents was too much for our team who sank in defeat by 7 to o. Our ancient Roanoke County rivals, namely Vinton, were beaten with the totals reading 13 to o. The football schedule was brought to a close on November 19th with the smashing victory of 52 to 2 over Danville. This game not only gave a colorful ending to 1938 football; it placed new names, such as Bowman, in the lineup. Denton Peters FOOTBALL VARSITY Katz G. Poff C. Poff McDaniel Whitlock Wood Reynolds Crowder Marmaduke Lambert Brown Captain Watson Cormell Fisher McGhee 1. John Gleason— 5 ' 10 " —160 “Pretty Boy,” one of the most promising backs in the state, was equally excellent on defense as well as offense. 2. Van Wood— 5 ' 11 " —155 Jefferson’s loss was our gain. Always ready when the going was tough, Van will be sorely missed next year. 3. Preston Reynolds—5 ' 11 " —150 Due to a broken shoulder Preston did not see as much action as should have been his. His ability as a triple-threat man earned him the responsibility of co-captain of next year’s squad. 4. Leon Crowder—5 ' 6| " —132 As fine a reserve back as Andrew Lewis has ever produced. His experience in seeing action in every game should enable him to be a valuable asset to Wake Forest. 5. Bob Saul— Manager 6. Hubert Whitlock—5 ' 7”—151 Small but one of the fastest backs that has ever played for Andrew Lewis. “Little Man” always pulled the squad out when their spirits were low. 7. Pete Holdren—5 ' 10”—145 We are looking forward to Pete’s outstanding passing ability to lead us to victory next year. 8. Gorman Poff— s ' 8”—150 A reserve plugger who held down the guard post faithfully. Gorman graduated at mid¬ term. 9. Fred Cormell— s ' 8”—155 Fred, a first string guard, really earned his position for four years due to his great blocking and pile-driving. 10. Jim Brown—5 ' 6 " —135 The toughest red head that has ever played for Salem High School. “The Mighty Mite” will be a great loss to the 1939 squad. 11. Harold Garrett—5 ' 7 ”—150 “Admiral” will be a mainstay in the back- field next year. His superb passing, kicking and power in plunging the line will surely find him a berth. 12. Paul Foley —5 " 11 " —160 Foley, a reserve lineman who helped hold the wall in some of our great battles, will be playing the same clean football next year. 13. Walton Bowles —5 ' 9”—145 A steady running mate who was moved in from the backfield to relieve Brown at guard. We will be watching for him next year. 14. Rufus Bowman —5 ' 9”—135 “Roots,” probably one of the lightest men on the team, is one of the reasons why Coach breaks into a smile when approached about the ’39 eleven. 15. Harold Keith —5 ' 10 " —155 Another dependable reserve who helped Mc¬ Ghee at the wing position. He should be a first string next year. 16. Lewis Surface —5 ' 8”—145 A sturdy little center who shared the honors with Watson at the pivot position. 17. G. C. Watson —5 ' 7 " —137 Short but tough, “George” filled Dan Hurdle’s shoes to a “T” at center. V. P. I. will probably see action from him in the next few years. 18. Jack Dame — Manager 19. Jack Wilbourne —5 ' 10”—155 Jack’s good sportsmanship and steady play¬ ing in the backfield will make him an invaluable cog in the next year’s team. 20. Paul McGhee —5 ' 10”—160 “Mac,” who has played two years of varsity football will be undoubtedly missed from the ’39 lineup. He graduates this year. 21. Robert Lambert —5 ' 10”—170 “Apey, ” the youngest football captain in the history of the school proved himself ably in the leadership of his team. He is one that won’t be forgotten. 22. Richard Fisher —5 ' 7”—185 The heaviest man in the line, “Square’s” love of personal contact will make him a precious possession of next year’s squad. He proved his popularity by being elected co-captain of the ’39 lineup. The Boys Hit the Hardwood When the Basket Ball Season Opens Paul Whitlock Harold Shelor Bernard Graybill Howard Wimmer Bob Jett Preston Reynolds Rufus Bowman Robert Lambert Paul McGhee Frank Hale D. J. Showalter Howard Barnett Jack Dame ( Manager ) With few letter men returning from the preceding season, the ’38—’39 basket ball squad made a good record this year. Six of the games were lost by one or two- point margins. The squad had many difficulties to face, among which was the graduation at midterm of Bob Lambert and Fred Cormell. Sickness also kept many of the boys out of the games. But these mishaps didn’t discourage Coach Denton. The boys worked hard during several weeks of practice and finally rounded out a fighting band of basketeers who tied with Danville for third place in the Western District. Due to the fact that only one varsity player, Paul Whitlock, will be lost by graduation, the ’39—’40 season should be a great year for Andrew Lewis because this year’s experience will be next year’s gain.

Rachel Light— Forward —Rachel came to us this year from Back Creek, and we know that their loss was our gain. She is our best forward and was awarded a place on the All-County Team. Rachel is a Junior and we hope she will be back next year playing for Andrew Lewis. 2. Mary Elizabeth Hale— Captain-Guard — Andrew Lewis will lose one of the best players by graduation this year. Mary Elizabeth is a grand sport, dependable, in fact, everything a good cap¬ tain must be to her team. We’re sorry to see her go and wish her the best of luck. 3. Mary Agnes Plybon— Forward —Although this is Mary’s first year out for varsity, she played an outstanding game. During the season she showed more improvement than any other player on the team. Mary will be back next year winning more honors for Andrew Lewis. 4. Jean Ann Wilfong— Center-Side Center — Although Jean Ann was originally a side center she played almost every position on the team, and did it well. She is one of our best and most depend¬ able players. Jean Ann made the All-County Team and played an excellent game. Great things are expected of her next year. 5. Ruby Horne— Side Center — Ruby is the smallest player on the team, but that isn’t a liability by any means. Greased lightning would be the best thing to describe her. Good luck next year, Ruby! 6. Mary Lofland— Forward — Although she was smaller than most of the girls who guarded her she played a good game. Mary did her part in scoring and put up a good defense. The team will lose a good sport and one of its best players through Mary’s graduation. 7. Eleanor Waddell— Guard —Eleanor is an¬ other of our players who will graduate this year. She is one of our best and most dependable guards. We’ll miss you next year, Eleanor. 8. Eileen Sale— Guard — Although Sale didn’t see much action this year, she could always be depended upon to do her part; Andrew Lewis will lose a fine sport by her graduating. 9. Frances Harrison— Center — Here’s to the girl who held down the pivot position of the team so capably. Frances is a good center; also a good side center, forward, and guard. She, too. is graduat¬ ing this year. 10. Myra Bunting — Manager —Myra has been our manager for two years, and we can but echo what was said about her last year. She is patient, dependable, and thoughtful. Thanks, Mymie, for all your help.

Stuart Faced with the problem of no field and lack of material on the mound, Coach Denton started the task of building a ball team on the little field at the side of the school. After much hard practice he finally brought forth his team. But all our hopes were shattered about six days before the first game. Coach Denton was taken ill and removed to the hospital. Then we suddenly remembered Mr. Jim Peters, the football star from Wake Forest. Mr. Peters gladly consented to step in and relieve us of our misfortune. He started the boys back to the grind after losing only one day of practice. The schedule calls for a number of games, many of which will be played away from home due to the fact that our field will not be ready until the middle of the season. Now as The Pioneer goes to press, we wish to thank Mr. Peters and the boys on the ball diamond for showing their respect and loyalty in carrying on in the absence of Coach Denton. We feel sure that he will be back soon to help finish the season with Andrew Lewis on top where she always has been.

They are being coached as usual by Coach Denton and Asbury Maury. The boys have been working hard and anxiously every day, weather permitting, in hopes of pro¬ ducing one of the best track teams that has ever come from Salem High. Roanoke College has again given us the liberty of using her track course and the boys wish to thank the officials for this privilege. As The Pioneer goes to press, we have a number of important meets on the card and we know that the boys will do their best to keep track at Andrew Lewis. SCHEDULE They iVe April 18. .

It is my earnest hope that these four years have left us sensitive in no small degree to the high privileges, genuine pleasures, and serious responsibilities that have gone into the making of your student days. I congratulate you upon your graduation and remind you only that it is your continuing obligation to the school to translate its ideals into broader lives of worthy endeavor. Sincerely yours, t Faculty Meets at 3:40 To those who not only labor long hours for our good in faculty meetings at the school after 3:30, but who, though already tired, often work and plan at home, far into the night, for us, we pause here to pay a tribute. We respect them as our superiors. We admire and appreciate them as our teachers and friends. We are grateful for their sympathy and patience as they lead and direct us through the “Day in School.” Mrs. Adelle M. Bennett Librarian Mr. L. Christensen Band Miss Annie L. Cox Home-Making Mrs. G.

Strickler English Miss Verba May Wood French A Typical School Day I turn on my pillow, dazed and puzzled, fumbling for the cord which I jerk to light my room. No light is needed. Through the window a dim, flickering street lamp reveals the neighbor’s lawn, a tall brushy hedge, and a scraggly mulberry tree. In the distance I can see a mountain peak, innumerable roofs, and a few stars in an inspiring bit of clear and peaceful sky. There are no cars, no buses, no crow¬ ing cocks, no shrieking sirens. Ah! This is rest! I breathe anew the cool, sweet air of Salem the Beloved. I love to live! I greet the coming day. There goes that ninety-eight-cent alarm clock! I wound it last night and set the hand at six. Now it unwinds into my ear the oft repeated tale: “It’s two hours till school time. You must dress—dress care¬ fully. Teachers always should be well-groomed.” Which hose look best with the old blue dress? Gray ones. Oh, there’s a run! I must have needle, thread, spectacles. A letter is due the homefolks. I should send a check to pay that bill today. Here are fifteen different blanks to fill, one hundred and fifty names to copy, ninety-nine test papers to grade. I’m neglecting my friends. The church needs my support. Incidentally, I need a bite of breakfast. (A hungry teacher can’t dole out mental victuals to youths who are hungering and thirsting for knowledge.) Now, while it’s quiet, I ought to complete that questionnaire sent in last week from the Planet Mars. Let me see! How old am 1 ? How long have I taught? Am I white—or green? Figures and words get mixed at school when one teacher has sixteen varieties of interruption to every square inch of desk space. I must be sure to call Mrs. Brown. She desires my poised and gracious presence at a tea tomorrow after¬ noon. I promised to appear on the program at the Anti-Worry Club this evening! My committee meets here Friday! O, the dust on that table! This is the day I planned to have my hair done! I take a sip of coffee and a piece of toast, then make a conscious and not unpleasant effort to chew, digest, absorb, and assimilate all the life-giving, brain-boosting vitamins contained in one soft-boiled egg. There’s a dash of butter, a smear of jelly, and one more piece of toast. There’s a stirrup-cup of coffee and my school day has begun. A neighbor, who is more than kind to do so, stops her car at my curb and hurries me to school. The air is crisp and clear. The very mountains seem to enjoy it. A whole caravan of buses (biliously yellow in complexion) are being emptied of their precious car¬ goes. Long files of pedestrians, as numerous as migratory birds, fill the spaces before me. There are bare heads, bare knees; few books, many books, no books; sweaters, gypsy scarfs, every color of the rainbow; fantastic and faddish jewels; colored ribbons, permanent waves; bouncing balls, wise saws, light hearts, laughter. Across my mind flash such trite phrases as Mamma’s darlings, job-hunters, future generations, responsibility, cannon-fodder, democracy, opportunity, immortality of the soul. I pass into the open door of the best high school in Old Virginia. Couples to right of me, Couples by stairway walls, Couples to left of me, Couples ’gainst locker doors, Couples in front of me, Couples in window sills, Volley and thunder. Coo—to my wonder. A few unsophisticated mortals romp and play like natural boys. Some rare specimens of humanity are grouped in a deserted classroom preparing a lesson. (0, newsibus rarebus!) Groups swarm into the library. A few seem to be seekers after knowledge. (See Robert L. Ripley.) Several teachers dart through the corridors. They seem to be racing with the bells and Father Time. The principal interviews a carpenter, an electrician, the janitor, the secretary, three teachers, and an irate patron. He signs one hundred and fifty-seven excuses, sells ten books, makes change, writes a receipt, greets an agitated bus-driver, and fingerprints two prospective pugilists who have used the school bus as their temporary ring. (After these two have completed their education, they hope to appear in the Arena at Rome.) Nine o’clock comes. I dust my desk and set it in order, provide proper lighting and ventilation, check excuses, sign building passes, call rolls, make absentee lists, greet students and co-workers. (I preen a little on the sly, for the sake of my pupils’ eyesight.) Then I inquire about sick members, discuss the warring nations beyond the seas, supervise devotional exercises, and read the announcements from the office. By this time I am eminently qualified for all the odd jobs of a Handy Andy in a three-ring circus. As each teacher begins the strenuous task of throwing into the vast pool of ignorance the few pebbles he has gathered from the shore, the sound waves ripple and reverberate along the hallway. A medley of accents falls upon the ear like the most spasmodic of Wagnerian operas: ioi—“These are the times that try men’s souls—He snatched the lightning from the skies and— A stitch in time saves nine. A good book is the precious life-blood of—Once upon a midnight dreary— Build thee more stately mansions—(I can’t teach people who have no desire for knowledge!) 102— Sit, sat, sat; set, set, set; lie, lay, lain; lay, laid, laid; lie, lied, lied; love, loved, loved; am loving, are loving, will be loving; to be about to be loved. (You’d better listen! I already know this! I’m not trying to teach myself!) (Gesticulations.) 103— And smale foules maken melodie. That slepen alle night with open eye. Something is rotten in the State of Denmark. The time is out of joint. Sweets to the sweet. Never shake thy gory locks at me. Shake off this downy sleep. (Don’t use an apostrophe in the pronoun its.) 104— Caesar had the Gaul to invade Britain. After all these years of strenuous civilizing processes we seem very little ahead of the stage in which J. C. found our forbears. 105, 206, 204, 203—If A passes by working all the time, and B, by working only half the time, how does C “get by” without working at all? Answer: Horse sense. (I could teach you mathematics, if you knew how to read.) Office —Don’t worry about it. Count it as a part of the day’s work. Everything deserves just so much time. 212— An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Glee Club —O, say can you see- I’m Salem born and Salem bred — Here Comes the br-Blue Team— There’s a Little Dutch Alill on a Little Dutch Hill—Where one night after the quilting party, On the Bonny, Bonny Banks of Loch Lomond I was seeing the Only Star in my Blue Heaven—But my Heart Belongs to Daddy. It Makes no Difference Now. 106—Where are the Whitlocks? 213— The sum of all the tasks and activities which are striving to turn a pupil in one direction is equal to the sum of all the outside interests tending to turn him in the opposite direction. (Therefore flaming youth prefers the primrose path.) no—Noah Webster wasn’t even a third cousin to Daniel. 211—Tell that idiot to stop blowing that horn. 306—Who is the biggest bluffer since Napoleon Bonaparte? 102—John Doe has not yet taught this school teacher to balance her budget. 210—A man who lived in Illinois was standing in Indiana. He was shot by a man standing in Ohio. In which state will the case be tried, and who will pay the lawyers’ fees? Is it larceny to steal a cat? 303—And what he thought was H 2 0 was H2SO4. Band —Toot! Toot! Toot! Bang! Bang! Bang! Squawk! Squawk! (Who hit that sour note!?!) O, What a nut I am! ) Gee, What a gump I am! j Tune, America Ah, What a boob! J (Interruption No. 99)—A youthful sheik returns with his library pass, signed A. M. B. and E. B. B. It reads thus: “J. B. has lost all library privileges. Don’t send him to the library again for sixty days. He thinks this is a trysting place.” The third hour ends. A caesural pause breaks the accentual rhythm. It is lunch hour. (Only thirty minutes, though.) Doors open as if by magic. A mad and hungry mob besieges the corridors. Coxey’s Army, the Ride of the Valkyries, and the Storming of the Bastille are minor matters compared with this melee. To Cafeteria, to Rhythm Club, and to the inviting open spaces the problem of appetites and weekly allowances are taken for quick solution. Now appetite gives place to romance—and to romping. Even a much-traveled person finds it difficult to decide whether he is in the Wall Street Stock Exchange, in Frank Norris’ Pit, or on the Boardwalk at Atlantic City. Three blasts of the bell announce time for one more hour of work. Then come home-room, assembly, club meetings, guest speakers; amateur actors making a wild scramble for costumes, stage equipment, cues, and composure. After thirty minutes of histrionic, terpsichorean, and oratorical effusions, the safety valve of assembly has released sufficient energy to make the last hour of school safe for democracy. Following several furious blasts of a very positive bell, we resume our pebble-throwing until three-thirty arrives. The bilious buses return. Doors fly open. The caged birds again begin to migrate. I return home. From my room I see once more the neighbor’s grassy lawn and the distant mountain. I ponder over life’s futilities, wondering if today I have picked up the right pebbles. Madame Conscience speaks a word or two about Air. Browning—his opinion of a man’s reach and his grasp. “Youth presses forward,” she says. “Let youth solve some of its own problems. Call it a day. Ah, why should life all labor be? In eight more hours you must be on the whirligig again.” Carrie Martin Pedigo Songs of the Moment BLUE AND WHITE Sing to the colors of nature dear; To them we’ll ever be true, In old Virginia with waters so clear, Salem, they brighten for you, Blue are the mountains that round you arise, silvery the moon of the night. Evening doth scatter the clouds in the skies, Mingling the blue and the white. (Chorus) Andrew Lewis with its blue and white, Where our hearts abound, in joys delight. Now and ever more, Honor and adore, The Blue and the White. VICTORY There is a high school in this State—in this State, And its football team will rate—yes, will rate, For the Blue Team of dear Andrew Lewis High will win that game today—or die. Andrew Lewis we adore you, Loyal Blue Team we are for you, And our colors Blue and White shall wave in victory. Fight, Fight, for Andrew Lewis High—Lewis High, Fight, fight, a touchdown is our cry—Is our cry, Oh Blue Team brave, put down the enemy, Victory! Victory! Victory! ALMA MATER Oh, Andrew Lewis, school adored, Our Alma Mater dear, Fond memories of Thee we’ll hold, Our hearts and minds to cheer, We’ll evermore Thy name adore, And honors to Thee bring, And now Thy sons and daughters, true, Loud praises to Thee sing. YIPPY—I —0 Andrew Lewis High, for you I’d die, For I love you dearly—And that’s no lie, You’re the best high school in Virginia State, And all the honors you will take, For the best of citizens you will make, Yippy-i-o—Andrew Lewis High. PALS Where are my pals of the Little Red School, Playmates like Jimmy and Jane, New pals may come and new pals may go, But memories of old ones remain. Let me go back to that quaint little shack, Where I learned the great golden rule—Let me wander once more, thru’ that Dreamland of yore, With my pals of the Little Red School. HAIL TEAM Hail! We toast our football team, Shout! till Andrew Lewis halls ring, Stand! and give a cheer again, Let every loyal student sing, Then fight and do the best you can, Fight for the dear old Blue Team, Fight and we will be victorious, For the high school of our hearts always. (Chorus) To the team, to the coach, To the students who cheer in their loyalty, To the life, to the staff, To the school we’ll remember always. Take me out to the ball game, Take me out with the crowd, Buy me some peanuts and cracker-jacks, I don’t care if I never get back And it’s root, root, root, for the home team, If they don’t win it’s a shame, So it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the old ball game. BLUE TEAM We will fight, fight, fight for the blue team, When the blue and white appears, We will pull like heck for the blue team, When they hear our mighty cheers—Rah! Rah! We will circle the end for the blue team, When they romp right down the field, Touchdown! Touchdown! Blue Team! Old Roanoke High will surely yield! SALEM HIGH SPIRIT Old Salem High may surely boast, Of a grand and glorious name, For Salem High is sure to win, All honor and highest fame, Hearts proudly loyal to thee, To cheer thee on thy way, So onward once more and show again, That we will win today. Rah! Rah! Rah! Cheer now for Salem High, Cheer for the spirit bred, No one can stop our men from smash¬ ing, crashing through that line of red, And we will fight, fight with all our might, And fight for the spirit true, Cheer now for Salem High, Cheer for the spirit true. SONS OF ANDREW LEWIS Sons of Andrew Lewis, Take the challenge to us, And march on to victory! Now we stand to praise you, Colors proudly raise you, And march on to victory! Onward, onward, straight against the foe, Forward, forward, see our banners go. Sons of Andrew Lewis, Take the challenge to us, And march on to victory! The Business Staff of The Pioneer Speaks We appreciate the pleasant, cooperative spirit which our advertisers have shown us as we worked with them in financing this ’39 Pioneer. We have enjoyed the part of “the day in school” which brought us in contact with our business friends. In many cases they have “patted us on the back,” have wished us luck and have been a source of real inspiration to us. It is our hope that Andrew Lewis students will boost the firms represented in this book for they handle the best in their respective lines.
