How stately, calm and serene. 1 She stands in sunshine or in storm, I ' as if to say to us, Her children, “Do thou likewise!” The Shop, where we have been trained to make many beautiful and useful things with our hands. Through this portal we have entered the Hall of Learning, day after day. Through the spacious Lewis cor- ridors we have pursued our various ways, pausing often between classes for a pleasant moment to chat with classmates. And how familiar this doorway through which we have passed to attend to some matter of routine, or perhaps to seek some kindly counsel from the genial gentleman, our principal, who inhabits the in¬ ner office beyond. I Salem High School, since its beginning in 1900, has represented that which is highest, noblest, and best in ideals and in scholarship. Andrew Lewis High School has gone forward, holding out to you the same ideals—high standards of scholarship and noble principles of character. Those who have been your instructors within these portals have desired to equip you with knowledge, a knowledge which will enable you to discern the truth from that which is false and worthless; they have endeavored to guide you in making wise decisions for yourselves. It is the sincere hope of The Pioneer staff of 1941 that, in years to come, as you turn back the pages of your life here at Andrew Lewis, this book may remind you that knowledge is power and that the world has great need of the power which comes from knowledge and truth. In a world which is sick today, because in some parts of it so much power has fallen into the hands of some who seem utterly unfitted for leadership and whose aims seem to be the destruction of civilization, the need for leadership of a different type where there is vast knowledge, wisdom, and character, becomes paramount. The staff, therefore, feel that they could leave with you no better thought than to remind you that scholarship may be of great value to you in your future life. Your Alma Mater has started you along the path of knowledge and right thinking. Continue your education, if possible, for it may be of more value to you than any of us now realize in the changing world of the present. If you cannot pursue your learning further, remember that Andrew Lewis and those who have gone from Salem High School, before you, are looking to you to uphold the ideals which have been given you, wherever your place in the world may be. At the right is a picture of the cover of the first Salem High School year¬ book, “The Aeroplane” of 1910; also, a reproduction of the Dedication page from that book. Note, too, the first Salem High School Senior Pin. We are grateful to Mrs. Roland Cook for furnishing us with this pin, and other pictures and information regarding the Class of 1900. Mrs. Cook tells us that the cost of this pin was fifty cents, and that she remembers that there was much discussion among the members of the class as to whether they should have a pin, even at this price. The class colors were silver and purple. The pin carries purple letters on silver. It was some years later that the Senior Class established the precedent of pur¬ chasing Class Rings. The 1941 class had their choice of the beautiful pin or ring, pictured also in the cut, at the right. Mr. and Mrs. Roland E. Cook Mrs. Cook Mr. Cook The above portraits were made in 1901 just after Mrs. Cook’s graduation from Salem High School. Mr. Cook be¬ came Superintendent of Roa¬ noke Count}- Schools five years later. To the ideals and ambitions of all those who have worthily preceded us in the history of Salem High School, we dedicate this thirty-first edition of the yearbook, The Pioneer. We appreciate the ideals which they have given us to follow, and we of Andrew Lewis High School have wished to follow them worthily. Especially, do we wish to pay tribute in this edition to our beloved Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Roland E. Cook, and to his admirable wife, Mrs. Ella Bullard Cook. We feel that their ideals exemplify the ideals of Salem High School and of Andrew Lewis High School. Mr. Cook, himself a scholar,, has labored to maintain a high standard of scholarship in the schools of Roanoke County during the thirty-five years of his superintendency. For this and particularly, for his ambitions and ideals in the erection and development of our own beautiful and modern Andrew Lewis High School, we are deeply appre¬ ciative. Mrs. Cook, a graduate of the first class of 1900 of Salem High School and a very charming lady, has ever been interested in the progress of our school. We are grateful to her for the ideals which she, as a graduate of the Class of 1900, has demonstrated in the beautiful example which she has given us. We take pleasure in expressing our appreciation, in this small way, to Mr. and Mrs. Cook, and to all who have had a part in establishing the ideals of our Alma Mater. Paude Uene ad we dtn ll In turning back the pages of time, the staff has made some interesting discoveries regarding faculty members and others connected with Andrew Lewis High School. What we found we give you here: i. Mr. and Mrs. Kyle, 1925. Mrs. Pedigo, a grave and reverend senior at Farmville College. 3. Miss Sarah Goodwin, 4. Mr. Blayne Miller, some years (?) ago. sweet girl graduate from Salem High School. At the time of this picture, Mr. Kyle had just been given the principalship of the elementary schools in Bluefield, Virginia, and Mrs. Kyle was working for her B. S. degree at Radford State Teachers College. The picture was made by Jenkins Photo Company in 1925. Mrs. Pedigo (quote): “In the early teens my ear caught the whisper, ‘Some¬ thing lost behind the ranges.’ I felt called to teach. Before I was twenty-one I had attended the Woman’s College in Richmond, Virginia, one year, had graduated from the Farmville State Teachers’ College and had taught one year in ‘Our Town,’ Callaway, Virginia. “In autumn of my twenty-first year, I went to teach in the picturesque and delightful town of Tazewell, Virginia. Though my ever-present conscience always prodded me to duty, the three happy years I spent in Tazewell were more social than professional—more filled with delights than with drudgery. I cherish the memories of Tazewell’s scenery and its charming people. “Other towns in which I have taught are Rocky Mount, Roanoke and Salem. In each of these places, I have left big chunks of my heart. The many worthy people I have learned to love, and the boys and girls from here and there (now people I have learned to love, with their boys and girls), who occasionally cheer my faint heart with words of appreciation, just keep me believing that in spite of world conditions and some modern philosophies, life is truly worth living. When the question of guidance is being discussed, I always advise my pupils thus: ‘If you hope to make a living, don’t teach school. If you love people, love to teach, and have the true missionary spirit, then teach! But—you must have enough faith in God to believe that He will provide for your physical comforts when life ' s twilight comes.’ Whispers still come to my ear. I’m trusting Him.” Mr. Blayne Miller: At the time of this picture, we find Mr. Miller a “gentleman farmer,” age 10 years. Since then he has graduated from the University of Cincinnati, the Cin¬ cinnati Conservatory of Music and taught eight years in high school and university. cujxUn alo+icj, Me n uf, -Haste i. Mr. Voci, at the age of 29. 2. Mrs. G. G. DeHart when she was Miss Dorothy Wells, graduate of Salem High School, 1925. 3. Mrs. Clifford Rice, another member of our faculty, when she graduated from Salem High School, 1925. 4. Mr. and Mrs. Kyle in 1917. Mr. Voci was at Saltville, Virginia, when the above photograph was made. He tells us that he was working for Mathieson Alkali Works there. He came to Salem in 1926 and took over his duties as custodian of the beau¬ tiful new Andrew Lewis High School building with its erection in 1932. Mr. Voci says that he feels it is an honor to have an institution like ours to care for. He was a bricklayer prior to 1932. Mrs. DeHart graduated from Salem High School in 1925. She attended Virginia Intermont College and Roanoke College. She has been a teacher in the Roa¬ noke County Schools for the past fourteen years. Mrs. Rice graduated from Salem High School in 1925. While she was in high school she was a member of the girls’ basket ball team for two years. She majored in Latin at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College and received her A. B. degree from this college. In June, 1929, she served as Off-Campus House President and member of Student Council her senior year. She has been teaching in Salem High School since September, 1929. In August, 1932, she was married and she now has a son three years old. This picture of Mr. and Mrs. Kyle was made in the summer of 1920 in Nashville, Tenn. Mr. Kyle was a graduate student at Peabody College and Mrs. Kyle was a special student in a school of chemistry, majoring in dietetics. This was Mr. Kyle’s second summer in graduate school, working for M. S. degree in Secondary Education. Although Mr. Snapp would not bring us an old pic¬ ture of himself we have a few facts about him. Mr. Snapp came to Salem High School in 1924 and, during these seventeen years, he has taught English in every winter session. For approximately ten years Mr. Snapp has taught summer school. In summer school he has taught Latin, Civics, History, Mathematics and So¬ ciology. Senior English would hardly be Senior English without Mr. J. H. Snapp. Mem ui Jla+te In presenting these pictures, the staff reminds you of the appeal which “old things” have—old pictures, old books, old music, old customs—all have charm and interest. Perhaps, a reason for this is that the past seems odd when compared with the present, and this comparison impresses one of the change that all things undergo with time. Compare, for example, your basket ball teams, typing department or faculty today with these pictures Our adviser, Mrs. Turner, when she graduated from Blackstone Junior College, in 1920. (She was then Miss Clyde Ramsey.) 2. Salem High School Dramatic Club in 1916. 3. Upper —The Salem High School. Girls’ Basket Ball Team, 1925. Lower —The Salem High School Boys’ Basket Ball Team, 1925. Mrs. Turner taught in Hillsboro High School, Lou¬ doun County, two years; Rocky Mount High School four years and Vinton High School four years before coming to Salem in 1931. She has been a member of the Salem High School English faculty since that time, and has sponsored The Pioneer since 193;. In the history of Salem Lligh School, dramatics has been an outstanding activity. In 1916 there were twelve members in the Dramatic Club. Since then, plays of various types have been presented throughout each year. Although there has been no organized club in the 1940-41 school year, much work has been done in this line and many pleasing performances have been staged at Andrew Lewis under the direction of Mr. Snapp, Mrs. Peery, and others. Athletics has been a major feature through the years. Football, Basket Ball and Baseball have been the main activities and in recent years Track and Tennis have gained popularity. The staff regrets that it was unable to procure an “old” picture of Mr. D. E. Denton, popular coach at Andrew Lewis for many 3 ' ears. Under his direction, athletics has gone forward and the Physical Education Department, as a whole, has progressed. M mo-tuf, Jlam below. Notice the difference in manner of dress as well as the difference in the number represented. Yes, old things are interesting and, although it is sometimes said that age is creeping up when one is inclined to reminisce, there is scarcely a person living who does not enjoy reliving the past. If these pictures are interesting, your own will be equally so in years to come. Baseball Team, 1916. Hi-Y Club, 1925. Typing Class, 1923- Faculty, 1923. Supt. R. E. Cook, 1910 In like manner, the Hi-Y Club has played an im¬ portant part in the development of young men. In 1925, there were only ten members. In 1941 there are about four times that number. In 1923 the typing class numbered around thirty-five. The Commercial Department has probably grown more rapidly than any other phase of the curriculum in re¬ cent years. Stenographic, bookkeeping and typing classes run each period in the day in the present year, with four teachers giving full time in this field. The faculty of 1923 offers a striking contrast to the present one of 1941, and further demonstrates the rapid expansion w ' hich has taken place in Salem High School since that time. The faculty, which then numbered twelve, has increased to forty-nine. In all this progress in the history of the high school at Salem, Mr. Cook, the gentleman pictured at the right, has had no small part. For thirty-five years he has been a great force in the education of the youth in Roanoke County. Mr. Cook’s years of labor as Superintendent may have added a touch of silver to his hair since 1910, but they have not lessened his vigor in the interest of educational development. Happy have been our jour¬ neys to and from school on the big yelloiu buses, though ive were a little crowded. Many pleasant strolls ive have enjoyed betiveen times about the beautiful campus. What fun to congregate out front and exchange pleasan¬ tries at lunch time! Even the spruce tree, covered with snow, stands straight and elegant, an example of fortitude and uprightness.

JONES On December 17, 1940, Miss Lucy T. Jones, Andrew Lewis High School’s first prin¬ cipal, passed away. She had been associated with Salem High School, now Andrew Lewis, for twenty years and was instructor in Latin at Lane High School in Charlottesville at the time of her death. Miss Jones was always painstaking and conscientious, combining admirably the quali¬ ties of an adequate disciplinarian with a deep understanding of youngsters which prompted many t osay, ‘‘We have never known a better teacher.” BOOK ONE — " 1U School In 1910 when the first Salem High School Annual was publishe d the High School faculty numbered three: Miss Lucy 1 ' . Jones. Prin¬ cipal and Instructress in Latin, Mathematics, and Orthography; Miss Annie McConkey, In¬ structress in first-tear Latin and English, Science and French, and Miss Hannah G. Armstrong, Instructress in English and His¬ tory. The Andrew Lewis Faculty now numbers fifty. The school offers to its fourteen hundred and sixty-five students a diversified program, which includes courses in Shop Work, Home¬ making, Music and Business. During these years which have passed, many changes have taken place in the administration, but one thing has remained the same—Miss Annie McConkey, who has been a member of the faculty each year since 1910, is still teaching Mathematics to the students of Andrew Lewis High School. Many principals have had a part in the progress of the school, but none, a greater part than Mr. Z. T. Kyle, who now so wisely guides this great institution at a period when there is much chaos and con¬ fusion in the world about us. Annie McConkey, Hannah G. Armstrong (Faculty of 1910) Mr. Z. T.

In 1900, the chief activity seems to have been the Senior Class play, “The Princess.” In 1910, the Lyceum and the Dramatic Club constituted the extra-curricular activities. Since that time their value in the educational program has been recognized more and more uinil at the present time at Andrew Lewis there are around forty student activities. Among them are the Projection Club, which films home movies and makes available to the students educational pictures throughout the year; the various athletic activities; partici¬ pation in the American School of the Air Program; band and choral; Hi-Y and F. F. A. Clubs for boys, Girl Reserves and Home- Making for girls; forensics; Newspaper, Annual and Beta; Student Monitors, and ether activities too numerous to mention in this space.

Every boy, to be eligible for membership, must have won a letter in either football, basket ball, baseball or track, and must have the unanimous vote of all members of the Club.

Turner, teacher of English. The staff is composed of twenty-five students representing the four classes. Senior members occupy the position as heads of the depart¬ ments, while underclassmen assist and learn the work. Any student of high scholastic standing, who is interested in journalism, is eligible to the staff. The work is conducted as an extra¬ curricular project in journalism, as the school does not have a Journalism Department. The book is planned and edited by students, with the cooperation of the Visual Education Department. All photographic work, except senior portraits, is done by Student Photographer Bob Carlton. Much hard work goes into the production of the book, but the students who engage in it feel that the training and experience obtained is as valuable as that gained in any class which they attend. The staff is exceedingly proud of Helen Chewning, ’39 editor, who edits the National Park College ’41 yearbook and Alice Lindsey, editor of the ’40 Pioneer, who drew up the “dummy” for the ’41 National Cathedral School at Mount St. Alban. { 30 )• Ite New THE STAFF Euitii Marie Johnston .

Associate Editor Rcportorial Staff Peggy Jerrell Betty Jean Pace Evelyn Taylor Smith Charles Swecker Dorothy Thompson Circulation Managers Charles Whitmore Lougenia Woolridge Jno. H. Snapp . Faculty Adviser Johnston and Thornton Friday morning during the home room periods at Andrew Lewis is usually more serene than the ordinary, for it is among those first few minutes before the storm, that all eyes are turned toward the latest news of the day. For eight years, the student publication, Andrew Lewis News, has related stories of life at Roanoke County’s largest high school, and no doubt will continue to do so for many years to come. To incite an interest in the field of journalism among the locality’s future citizens, The Times-Register , a weekly newspaper in Roanoke County, has donated a full page each year since 1932 for the Andrew Lewis News. Ever since that first issue eight years ago, Mr. Jno. H. Snapp, instructor in Senior English at Lewis, has faithfully fulfilled the duties of faculty adviser and has carefully supervised every edition of the paper. Each year it becomes the task of Mr. Snapp to select what he thinks is a competent, reliable staff to edit and write the newspaper during the school term. As the 1940-41 editor-in-chief, Edith Marie Johnston has very capably filled that position. Having but a small amount of experience but a great capacity for learning quickly, Edith Marie has become a talented high school senior journalist. With their jobs mainly as news hounds the Andrew Lewis Neves staff consists of David Thornton, associate editor; Peggy Jerrell, Evelyn Taylor Smith, Betty Jean Pace, Charles Swecker and Dorothy Thompson. These are the ones who are attempting to develop a “nose for news” and whose job it is to turn out the ever-needed copy. However, the staff would not be complete without the names of the circulation managers. Charles Whitmore and Lougenia Woolridge have held the position of seeing that the subscription campaign is carried out and then that those subscribers are insured of getting their paper each week on time. Items that are included in the Andrew Lewis News from time to time vary from editorial to the always popular gossip column, namely, “Et Cetera.” All happenings at Andrew Lewis, such as sports, assemblies, dramatics, public speaking, debating, musical events and all of the varied clubs, are nearly always given full write-ups, as are the many other items of interest arising at the school. The Andrew Lewis News is a member of the Southern Interscholastic Press Association, and last fall sent its editor as a delegate to the annual convention at Washington and Lee University in Lexington.

Mrs. Shockey left our faculty last year, after making a very success¬ ful record at Andrew Lewis, to take a position with the National Youth Administration. The debate teams attended the National Forensic League district meet at Bristol, Va. The teams, as they stood at this meet, were: Affirmative, first speaker and rebuttal, Charles Whitmore; second speaker and cross-examiner, David Thornton; negative, first speaker and rebuttal, Broaddus Chewning; second speaker and cross-examiner, Tom Weir. The affirmative met and defeated teams from the following places: Elizabethton, Tenn., Princeton, W. Va., and Orlando, Fla. The negative met and were defeated by the following: Kingsport, Tenn., Johnson City, Tenn., and Bristol, Va. The negative defeats eliminated the school. The teams, as they stood for competition in the Virginia Literary League, were: Affirmative, Charles Whitmore, first speaker; David Thornton, cross-examiner, and Alan Walrond, rebuttal. Negative, Broaddus Chewning, first speaker; Flarry Johnson, cross¬ examiner, and Tom Weir, rebuttal. Andrew Lewis met Jefferson for the district Virginia Literary League contest on April 19. As result of this contest, the Andrew Lewis affirmative and the Jefferson nega¬ tive will enter the state tournament at Charlottesville. The debate question for the year was, “Resolved: That the Power of the Federal Government Should be Increased.” The question for next year will pertain to compulsory military training. The purpose of forensic work is to enable the stu¬ dents, through practice, to present their ideas and plans intelligently and clearly to other people. When this is achieved the student has a valuable asset which nothing else can replace. N. F. L.

In his Armistice Day speech, “Our Real Defense,” David Thorn¬ ton won first place in the county over William Byrd and William Fleming. This was the first year the contest was all-county. Our school for the first time became a member of the National Forensic League and participated in the district contest in Bristol, Va., sending representatives in extempore speaking, original, humor¬ ous, oratorical and dramatic declamation. Debating schools entering the contest were from Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia.

GUafiteA (International Student Society) The French Club of Andrew Lewis joined the International Student Society, Vancouver, Washington, in November, and received a charter January i. The purpose of this society is the noblest work of all—the promotion of International Friendship and World Peace. The motto is: “United Youth World Friendship. " By joining this society members correspond with students in other countries, are entitled to purchase and wear I. S. S. pins and, most important, the school is represented in the Student Who’s Who in the Americas, also two faculty members in the Teachers’ Who’s Who in the Americas. The I. S. S. Club holds two meetings each month and for the programs some important literary or historical French character is discussed in addition to French folk songs, poems, etc. In regard to activities, the Club had a Christmas party with dancing at the County Woman’s Club House on December iS. A program in French was given and gifts were exchanged according to the French custom. Choral mem¬ bers of the Club sang carols in French for the Christmas program of the Cercle Francais of Roanoke City. The Club sponsored the French movie, “The Life and Loves of Beethoven.” In addition to Andrew Lewis students, members of the Cercle Francais of Roanoke City and French students of William Fleming High and of Roanoke College attended the movie. This movie has been described as the best that Andrew Lewis has ever shown. The Club for the spring semester is giving an assembly program in French for the senior and freshman groups; the first-year class is entertaining the first of May the ninth grade with a short program and a tea for the purpose of arous¬ ing interest in French. On May 23 is the annual Lawn Party given by the entire department. This consists of short plays, folk songs and dances—everything in French. This is given for the faculty, parents of the students and those who are especially interested in French.

Treasurer The Hi-Y Club of Andrew Lewis during the last year has especially dwelt on a higher and more creative way of living. The Club began the year with several dinners at which some of Salem’s most prominent men spoke to the members. The initiation of new members into the Club was held at one of these dinners. Baskets were given to the unfortunate at Christmas and for a period of two weeks each, boys from the Club were appointed to raise and lower the Flag. Being the host to the district Fli-Y conference was the Club’s largest task during the year. The conference began Friday, March 21, and ended Sunday, March 23. On Friday, after the boys had been registered, they were taken to the houses where they were to stay. That night a supper was given for them. Saturday morning provided for group singing and discussio n groups, in which creative living was discussed. The Roanoke College gymnasium was open for recreation in the afternoon. On Saturday night a banquet was given and later a dance. The boys, after attending church in a group on Sunday, returned to their homes. The theme for the conference was “Living Creatively in Times Like These.” First Row —Thcmas Fleck, Jack Lowe, Bill Layman, Joe Ross, Bill Wrench, J. A.

Vice President Mary Agnes Plybon. Secretary Charles Whitmore. Treasurer In October, 1932, the first charter of the National Beta Club was registered with the State of Kentucky. In the fall of 1933, Dr. John W. Harris, of Spartanburg, became secretary-treasurer of the organi¬ zation and installed several chapters in Spartanburg County, S. C. By the close of the 1933-34 session there were nine clubs with a mem¬ bership of 89. In August, 1936, the original charter was terminated and the organization rechartered under the laws of South Carolina. Under the leadership of Dr. Harris, the work has broadened from year to year. At the close of the 1940-41 session there are chapters in fourteen states with a total membership of eight thousand. The primary purposes of the Beta Club are: The cultivation of scholarship and fellowship among students; the encouraging of high standards of morality and conduct, and the instilling of such ideals of loyalty, integrity and courage as will develop worthy leadership. The honor of membership is awarded only to those students whose records in their respective classes have come up to specific standards. Since September, 1936, ten groups of students have been installed as members of the Andrew Lewis Beta Club. These groups give a total membership of one hundred and fifty. Of that number twenty-three will graduate in June, 1941, and twenty-one will remain in Andrew Lewis to carry on the Beta Club work next session. Of the one hundred and fifty, sixty-one have attended college or university. Five have taken commercial courses. Five are trained nurses. One is a technician. Seven are married. The rest have gone directly from high school into the various occupations in the community. Their positions include stenographers, tellers, journalists, electricians, heads of departments, musicians, government employees, pharmacists, cashiers. Two have remained in the home, where they are indispensable members of their own households. A study of this record renews our faith in Beta Club ideals. We believe the organization is meeting a long-felt need when it recognizes and persistently strives to reward excellence of achievement and character in our young people. Carrie M.

It is doing much to relieve congestion and confusion during the lunch periods. The monitors are selected by their home rooms, each senior room choosing four, each junior room, three, each sophomore room, two, and each freshman room, one. Serving for two con¬ secutive weeks, senior monitors are on duty with the freshmen and junior monitors with the sophomores, in order that the younger members can profit from their experience and so that each post can have a pupil on duty at all times. To be eligible for selection from one’s home room, it is necessary to maintain a passing average. And not only is the scholastic standard considered, but also the character, disposition and will¬ ingness to serve of the individual. There are various duties assigned to those who serve in this system. First, they must keep order on the stairs. “Single file, please,” has become a familiar slogan to the entire student body. And this slogan has been one of the most important factors in making passage on the stairs one hundred per cent easier and swifter. Other duties include keeping the center of the halls clear for passage, asking those who wish to talk to move to one side, check¬ ing building passes to see that pupils who are in the halls have sufficient reason for being there, and giving information to both students and visitors. A monitor may be recognized by his attractive blue and white badge. The success of this system will depend not only on the monitors and teachers, but upon the support given by each member of the student body.

A new department has been established, known as the Department of Visual Education. The purpose of this department is to render service to all departments with visual aids, whereby the student will learn primarily by the aid of the objects or materials rather than reading or listening. Visual aids are used to stimulate interest, providing visual experiences that are beyond the concept of words, and increasing under¬ standings by relating these experiences to life. The department this year has developed the moving picture, slides and film strips as accessories to teaching. The moving picture camera has been used to take pic¬ tures of many school activities in the development of an orientation program. The Graflex camera has been used to take many pictures that will be used in the annual. Andrew Lewis is a member of the Southwest Virginia Cooperative Film Association and receives two films per week, subjects of interest to the Social Science and Science Departments. A full-length feature picture is run once a month before the entire student body. Many pictures of educational and recreational interest are shown at assemblies. A Projection Club has been organized with the purpose of training interested students in the operation and care of machines, films, slides, etc. The membership includes students with free periods during the school day. These students are on call for any department that wishes the use of any machine during the day. The Visual Education Department has purchased this year a new arc-light auditorium projector, a projector found very rarely in schools, with the idea of bringing to the student body the best that can be had. The students can rightly be proud of their Visual Education Depart¬ ment, as from many recent checks there are only a very few schools in the entire country that can compare with the program and equipment that Andrew Lewis has to offer to its students.

Treasurer The Girl Reserves Clubs of Andrew Lewis during the term 1940-41 have been identified more with inter-club affairs than formerly. Carolyn Craw ' ford, the Senior Club presi¬ dent, was sent to Camp Betty Hastings last June. Much help, materially and financially, was given in assisting with the Regional Con¬ ference held in Roanoke in November. A fel¬ lowship dinner was given by the Club for the delegates entertained in Salem, and their hostesses. Twenty-five dollars was contributed from the treasury to help finance the con¬ ference. More than 30 of our members attended the conference. Pauline Webb, Adviser The clubs were represented in every phase of work connected with the Sixtieth Anniversary of Girl Reserve work in America (April 20- 26). The Andrew Lewis clubs attended special church services at the Methodist Church, April 20. Each member made a special contribution during the week and designated it should be used for Girl Reserves in China. At the time of this writing the clubs are planning their spring formal during the month of May and hope it will be as successful and as enjoy¬ able as those of previous years.

Peery, has been very active this year. To begin with, we went to Radford in October and sang for the V. E. A.; in November, we sang for the Thanksgiving Festival and in December for the Christ¬ mas pageant. Also during the holidays we sang at the Salem Baptist Church. In April we again went to Radford to sing in the annual music festival. Perhaps the biggest event this year, as always, was the operetta given on April 18, 1941, at eight o’clock P. M. in the high school auditorium by the Senior Choral Club. The name is “In the Garden of the Shah.’’ Neli. G. Pefry Director The cast is as follows: Zodhah, Edith Scott; Lolhah, Catherine Osbourne; Sheik, Bob Barger; Shah, Leonard Broughman; Ted, Rufus Bowman; Billy, Buddy Chewning; Sam, Lynwood Angell, and Noivobeh, Bea Jones. As the annual goes to press, we are planning for the spring music festival, the music for the Baccalaureate Service and Commencement. First Row —Jimmy Smith.

I will try to summarize them for you. Last August Mr. Christensen took the band to Wytheville to play for their centennial. We played for nearly all the football games last winter, including the Lynchburg game, which was played away. Each Christmas we give a Christmas Concert for the pupils either before or right after the holidays. In February we played a concert at the Veterans Facility, which was a big success. L. Christensen Director Our annual concert was given Ap ril ioth, which included a moving picture and a magician. The proceeds will be used for more equipment for the band. We have also played for the baseball games and will continue to do so until the end of the season.

BOOK THREE — AtkUiicl For some years athletics has been a prominent feature in the life of Salem High School. The year of 1917 seems to have been a banner year in Football and in Basket Ball. Both boys’ teams (pictured on this page) were State Championship win¬ ners that year A handsome sil¬ ver cup was presented the Bas¬ ket Ball Team which had fought its way through the semi-finals at Charlottesville, for which on¬ ly six schools in the state quali¬ fied, defeating Portsmouth and Charlottesville High and thus winning the State Championship for the second time in two con¬ secutive years. A banquet was given by the business men of Salem in their honor, also. The first girls’ basketball team at Salem (pictured at the right) was organized in 1917. Although this team felt the joy of winning only three games out of eight played, they always felt the thrill of having played a clean game; and they gained a repu¬ tation for clean sportsmanship which the school has maintained throughout the years that have followed, and of which we are exceedingly proud. The First Girls ' Basket Ball Team, 1917— Martin, Temple, Logan, Wil¬ liams, E. Clark, M. Clark, Francis, Goldsmith, Stevens. Boys’ Basket Ball State Championship Team, 1917— Crawford, Woods, Peters, Glenn, Williams, llammit, Webber, Bunting, Spruhan {Coach). Scenes from the athletic life of the school—Shirley Richardson purchases basket ball ticket, from Mr. Snapp; Coach Denton holds a “bull session’’ (proba bly before the Jefferson game); Scene in the grandstand at Jefferson game; the Drum majors head the band; band marches at Maher Field; the tilt with William Byrd, Vinton; Danville game; girls ' gym class. 47 tf-ootball John Gleason, Captain To the Faculty and Students We wish to thank the faculty and the student body as a whole for the fine support given the football team. It is you that made it possible for us to have a team. To the Coaches Coach Denton, with the able assistance of Coach Thompson, did a mighty fine job of turning out the strongest team the Wolverines have had in some years. Coach Jim Peters, now in school at V. P. I., assisted in coaching the backfield early in the season. To the Players We must give due credit to those boys who actually made up the team. There was plenty of hard work, bruises, sore muscles, mixed up with the glory of winning on Satur¬ days. To let you know that Saturday was not the only day the football team worked, we give you an account of what is back of the strength of the team—in short, hard work.

September 2 to 14 Few of the students remember September 2, 1940, as vividly as the members of the football squad. We reported early that morning ready for practice. Every one in the dressing room was in an uproar, complaining about one piece of the equipment or the other. After quite a struggle the hoys were all ready for the first drill of the season. We ran our customary two laps and had our regular calisthenics and then the real work began. Coach Denton introduced the tackling and blocking dummies to linemen and, no doubt, they knew the old fellows pretty well before the day was over. Coach Thompson and Coach Peters had the backs and ends working on passing, side¬ stepping and kicking and in order not to slight the ends they were introduced to the dummies. After what was termed an easy morning, we headed for the showers, only to receive the cheering news to return at 2 o’clock that afternoon. All the boys returned for practice that evening with some muscles and countless aches and pains. The aches and pains were soon forgotten out in that hot September sun, as the boys went through their regular drill. These drills continued until about the fourth day; it was then we received our fundamental plays and began our real football. Running our plays and becoming in better physical condition each day, we were now ready for our first scrimmage. With plenty of hard work, we were now shaping into a football team. Im¬ proving our timing of plays and drilling on defense, we were soon ready to meet our first foe. On that Saturday, September 14, all the boys were anxious to put on those new blue uniforms and, with a feeling that only one who has played football can describe, we went to the field. ANDREW LEWIS 41, BEDFORD o The referee blew the whistle and the season of ’40 had Garrett and McCallum, Incoming Co-Captains really begun. Salem kicked off to Bedford, and in the next few plays, Richard Fisher, guard, recovered a Bed¬ ford fumble on the 15- yard line. On the fourth down Jack Wilbourne faded and tossed a pass to Captain Johnny Glea¬ son, who crossed the goal line for the first score. Richard Haskins, the boy with the educated toe, kicked the extra point. The mighty Wolverines, mixing, running and pass¬ ing plays equally well, scored at least once in { 1 !) K F LEWIS CHEER LEADERS Crawford, Holdrcn, Ferris, Garnett, M. Wygal, ]. Wygal, Williamson James, Haider, Kimmerling tf-bO-thcdl each of the remaining quarters and added four extra points. The entire squad of Coach Denton’s boys saw action in the game. The following week we ironed out the rough spots in the plays and added a few new ones. With great hopes of winning, we left for the coast on Thursday, to encounter the “Ty¬ phoons” of Newport News. ANDREW LEWIS 6, NEWPORT NEWS 19 The Wolverines went on the field that Friday night confident of winning. It seems that the Wolverines just couldn’t click and the Newport News “Typhoons” crossed our goal line three times. In the third quarter, Jack Wilbourne made a spectacular run of eighty yards only to be stopped short of the goal line. In the fourth quarter, the Wolverines, now beginning to click, took the kick¬ off and in successive plays drove sixty yards into scoring position. Rufus Bowman, in a play wide to the left, went over for the score. Rather disappointed, we returned for another week of drilling and with the same dominating spirit of winning we were ready for the next game. ANDREW LEWIS 44, COVINGTON 7 The Wolverines, to redeem their defeat of the week before and to prove their strength, really romped on Covington. Salem counted one touchdoAvn in each of the first time quarters. In the second quarter Covington scored their only touchdown. In the third, Salem reached their peak with 19 points. In the fourth Rufus Bowman intercepted a pass and raced 70 yards for a score. No doubt, without that strong, ever-charging line, the outcome of this game would have been different. By this victory we hoped to restore the students’ confidence in us. The following Friday we were again ready for a tilt. ANDREW LEWIS 47, WILLIAM FLEMING 7 Again we saw the mighty Wolverines go into action, and what action, with the team scoring at least once in each quarter. Coach Denton used his entire squad of players, and it looked as if they just didn ' t know when to stop scoring. The William Fleming score came in the last quarter of the game, against an entire team of substitutes. Another victory for the Wolverines is now on the books. Gaskins Loop Shelor Starkey Bowles King McCluer With valuable experience being gained each week, it seemed that no team was to stop the strong Wolverines. ANDREW LEWIS 33, LANE HI o By the looks of the above score, the Wolverines had another field day. Seeking revenge for the defeat of Andrew Lewis’ crippled last year team, nothing could stop that powerful Wolverine line and their spedy, hard-hitting backs. The two ends of Salem’s eleven, Bob Jett and Harold Keith, played outstanding games, they continually stopped plays around end and were in the Lane Hi backfield a good part of the time. With all the boys playing heads-up ball, Coach Denton was very well pleased with his team’s victory. The following week we had light work-outs and, after the previous crushing defeat, we were due a rest. The follo wing Monday we were back at our regular drills, preparing for our old rivals of Roanoke. ANDREW LEWIS 15, JEFFERSON 7 With perfect weather for this traditional battle with Jefferson, the Woolverines invaded Roa¬ noke. Before a large crowd, the Salem eleven went on the field with the will to win. In the first period of play, punts were exchanged freely between Harry Walton, of Jefferson, and Jack Wil- bourne, of Salem. It was in the last of the first period that Salem started its first touchdown drive. Bowman gained five, Haskins added five more for first down. Bowman was stopped at the line and Wilbourne, side-stepping two tacklers, completed a pass to Bowman on the Jefferson 25 as the first period ended. Haskins gained five through center, Garrett picked up two and on the third Wilbourne passed to Gleason for a score. Haskins booted the return point. Wilbourne made a nice 20-yard run but was stopped on the Jefferson 27. Failing to gain, Wilbourne kicked over the goal line. The charging Salem line drove into Jef¬ ferson and tackled Wal¬ ton back of the goal for safety. Salem had 9 to o at the half. Shortly after the kick¬ off in the third, the entire Salem line sifted through the Jefferson forward wall and hit Walton hard, causing him to fumble. Wyatt Corbin fell on the ball for a Salem score. The placement was wide. Jefferson scored their { 51 } The Tilt with Jefferson tf-Goiball only touchdown in the third period, when a long pass was thrown to John Cassell. Salem came back strong and drove to the Jefferson 9-yard line, only to be stopped short of an¬ other touchdown. In the fourth period Jefferson, in a vain effort to wfin, took to the air, only to be stopped again by the Salem team. A few plays later the game was over. That was a tired bunch of boys heading to¬ ward the shower room, for each had put his whole heart and best effort into the game. After this victory over Jefferson, the squad had the first of the week easy. Soon, however, our rough w r ork began and we were ready for the next team on schedule. SALEM 48, VINTON o With the Salem eleven scoring twice in the first five minutes of play and again in the first period, once in the second, twice in the third and once in the fourth, the Wolverines met with little opposition. The “Terriers” couldn’t make a dent in the strong Wolverine forward w T all and did not get into scoring territory all evening. Again the entire squad of Coach Denton’s players saw action. ANDREW LEWIS 13, LYNCHBURG 14 This was the closest and hardest fought game the Wolverines had played. The Wolverines, scoring in the first three minutes of play, had made a good start. It was impossible for the Hill- toppers to gain ground through that unyielding Salem line but in the second period McKenna, of Lynchburg, threw a long pass for the score that tied the Wolverines at the half. The Salem boys really came back fighting in the third. Harold Garrett ran the ball back to the Lynchburg 22, Salem gained nine yards four downs and Lynchburg took over. Big Buck John¬ son, Salem center, interrupted a pass and the Salem boys drove to the four only to be stopped again. The Salem line kept driving into the Lynchburg backfield and when Salem kicked to Lynchburg they fumbled, and again it was Salem ' s ball. Roots Bowman carried the ball over for a score this time. The try for extra point failed. In the fourth, with the Salem line still pounding Lynchburg on defense and on offense, the Hilltoppers made a long pass good and Bob Murray, of L) ' nchburg, kicked the extra point to win Morris Hudgins Katz Moose Williams Thompson Wilson 52 } this tilt. All those who saw the game know that this Salem eleven outplayed the Lynchburg team in every respect. The team rested a week and then prepared for their last game of the season and for ten boys it was to be the last game played under Andrew Lewis colors. ANDREW LEWIS 33, DANVILLE 6 Still showing its mighty offense, the Wolverines again scored in each period of play. In the first minute of play Roots Bowman made a beautiful 53-yard run for the first score. Wilbourne carried the next one over. Harold Garrett took the ball on a reverse in the second period and scored standing up. In the third, Haskins went over for a score and at the beginning of the fourth McCluer crossed the line for the last Salem score. Danville scored on a 65-yard pass from Reigh Puk to Charlie Roysten, Danville end. This game ended our season of ’40. The statistics showed that we had the highest scoring team in the state and the most powerful offense in the school’s history as well as a very creditable defense. Among the outstanding players on the squad was Richard Fisher, guard, who w ' as chosen on the all-state eleven. Richard is the first player from Salem to win this honor since 1930. Jack Wilbourne, back, was chosen on the second team all-state eleven. John Gleasoon, Ed McCullum and Rufus Bowman received honorable mention. We are all proud of these boys and know that each deserved these honors. FIRST TEAM, First Row —Bernard Katz, Richard Fisher, Walton Bowles, Millard Bryant, Herald Keith. Back Row —Claude Hollyfield, Rufus Bowman, John Gleason, Jack Wilbourne, Richard Haskins, Johnny McCluer. 4 53 ) Basket Ball Like every other sport, to have a good team means regular practice and hard work. Basket hall is no exception. With several registers from last year’s squad to build his ’41 team around, Coach Denton started his regular drills in November. The Salem five began their season with a 32 to 23 victory over Rocky Mount. This game was a little ragged but the boys had made a good start and were soon to play some fine ball. One of the most exciting games of the season was played against the strong Hampton team. With the score tied in the last seconds of play, Harold Shelor made a final shot to give us a 28 to 27 victory. For the first time in several years, Salem gained a victory over Lynchburg. It was in this game that Bob Jett, tall Salem center, played a bang-up game and had a total of nine points to his credit. Howard Barnett, who was absent when the team was pictured. Showing a strong offense, the Salem boys beat Lexington by a score of 48 to 35. Harold Shelor and D. J. Showalter played outstanding ball and each bagged 17 points. The Salem team won ten games and lost eight. Although they could have had a better season, they considered it a successful one. Coach Denton is looking forward to his next year’s team. Many of this year’s players will be back and they should have an above average season. Among the outstanding players was Harold Shelor, honorary captain, who had a total of 197 points for the season. This is the biggest number of points made by one individual in the history of this school. Upper —Scenes from the Vinton, Rocky Mount and Danville games. Lower —The Danville game.

We have several boys who are outstanding in their own events, but to win meets, it is necessary to have second and third places, too. We have Richard Fisher, who is outstanding in the weights; John McCluer and Roots Bowman, in the dashes; Bob Jett, in the 440, and Claude Hollyfield in the 880. Andrew Lewis 27, Hargrave Military Academy 36. Our first meet was with the Hargrave Military Academy. We lost by a score of 36 to 27. Our boys did some mighty fine work, but the Hargrave team was too strong for us. Andrew Lewis 67, Clifton Forge 23. This was our second meet and the Salem boys had gained more experience. They literally swamped the Clifton Forge lads. The Salem team won nine first places of the ten events. As the Pioneer goes to press, we are looking forward to our other meets. wi 1 .

The year’s schedule of events shows this tendency with a sport the year around— from crisp fall days with basket ball to spring, when shorts, sun glasses, and peasant scarfs make their appearance on the tennis courts. Intramural sports began at Andrew Lewis last year and have con¬ tributed to the social, physical, mental and ethical qualities of every girl who has participated. It has given them command of certain fundamental processes and contributed much to her sportsmanship, her health and her citizenship. Intramurals have been highly successful and it is planned to add additional sports to the calendar for another year so that every girl may find something to her liking. Rebecca W. Kern, Coach BASKET BALL From the warm fall days to the cold wintry days basket ball had its place, consisting of individual practices and hard-fought intramural games. It looks as if the old saying, “Practice Makes Perfect,” is right all. The Seniors proved that when they beat the Junior, Sophomore and Freshman classes. The scores were: Senior . 50 Junior . 20 Senior . 56 Freshman-Sophomore . 12 Junior . 45 Freshman-Sophomore . 24 class after SENIOR PICTURE —Beverly Showalter, Missouri Lyerly, Viola Mowles, Mary Agnes Plybon (Captain), Anna Westwood, Arlene Whiticar, Minnie Wygal, Margaret Kelly.

SOFTBALL The girls of Andrew Lewis have definitely placed softball on their list of after-school activities. By the number of students out the prospects are excellent for the interclass games. A number of new girls are out this year and we wish them success in carrying their team to victory. TRACK Again we find track a popular activity for girls. High jump, standing broad jump, and running broad jump have been added on to the usual events of 50-yard dash, relay, baseball and basket ball throw. The track meet this spring will determine both individual and team standing in this field. If determination has anything to do with records, then many of them should be broken when the track meet is held. TENNIS The tennis season opened in the fall with classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced players. A keen interest was shown and it was decided to hold the tournament in the spring. The champion of last tear, Elinor Watson, will be on hand to defend her crown and everything points toward an interesting tournament. GYM EXHIBIT Of course you saw our second annual Gym Exhibit on the night of April 8. Bang ! !c-? )|—” crash?!— zingx . ?! Yes, that’s the one. ‘‘Believe it or not” there weren’t any cracked skulls or broken limbs. Did you see how the people covered their eyes when the stunts, tumbling and the building of pyramids were going on. Oh-no, I wouldn’t be such a sissy as to cover my face—(sh, yes, it was rather hard for me to get under that chair). There goes the whistle—here comes the grand march and there goes the patriotic drill. Why do we have to go home? Will you give us a Gym Exhibit next year if we go home now? Oh, you will try to! All right, I’ll go, but I will be back next year. so THE CLASS OF 1900 First Row —Blanche Johnston, Grace JViley, Mr. William M. Adams, teacher, Margie Logan, Ella Bullard.

Mr. Woodrum’s words are much more beautiful and fitting than any tribute which we might write, and express our feelings about Gordon so well that we quote from his address: “Mr. Speaker, in this fateful hour when our way of life is challenged, when horrid war is spreading over the earth like an ever-consuming flame and nearer and nearer our own shores, we are deeply impressed with the tragedy of it all. It is time for meditation and for prayer. Already many American homes have been grimly reminded that we must ever be ready to sacrifice, if need be, if our institutions of freedom are to survive. Today I am thinking particularly of one fine American home that has made the supreme sacrifice. February 24, 1941, Ensign Gordon S. Maxwell, age 23, of Roanoke, Virginia, aviation pilot, United States Naval Reserves, lost his life in line of duty when his plane crashed during hazardous dive-bombing practice near the naval base at San Diego. Gordon Maxwell typified the very finest in American youth. He was passionately fond of avia¬ tion. He loved to soar up into the heavens and wing his way amongst the snow-capped clouds. On one occasion, not long before his last flight, he ' wrote his mother, ‘If I ever crash in my plane, don’t sorrow for me, for I’ll still be flying up in the clouds, laughing down at you and waiting for you.’ Yes, Mr. Speaker, our Sky Pilot rides the airways today, bidding us have courage and faith and strength to meet the challenge to America—the blessed land for which he gave his life.” Our hearts are saddened at Gordon’s passing, but we are proud of his spirit, his ambitions, and ideals. Truly, they were ideals of which Andrew Lewis High School may be proud. uttiosi GlcM 1941 Junior Officers The Junior Class of 1910 Tfiomas Stamper President Robert Logan Vice President The Sophomore Class of 1910 Cj 81 Maxine Amos Jacqueline Garner James Gaskins India Grice Howard Baker Geraldine Garner Virginia Godbey J.

BOOK FIVE- AdhtebtiAceMesitA, CO-OPERATION Andrew Lewis High School has a host of friends among the business firms of Roanoke and Salem who co¬ operate each year by advertising in our yearbook. Many of them have sup¬ ported us consistently since the first edition of the Salem High School An¬ nual in 1910. The opposite page shows some of these ads as they ap¬ peared in “The Aeroplane”, in 1910. The Pioneer Staff is deeply appre¬ ciative for the friendly helpful spirit of our sponsors and friends, and en¬ deavors to impress upon the student bod) ' the fact that the school can, in return, render great service to the mer¬ chants of our community. Movie films featuring our advertisers were made and run on the screen in regular Home Movies throughout this school year. The following excerpt was taken from the 1917 Annual, “The Oracle”: FELLOW SCHOOL STUDENTS— “You have read what the advertisers have to say, NOW WHAT ABOUT IT? ADVERTISERS are not merely a group of philanthropists, they EX¬ PECT RESULTS. It is up to you to patronize those who patronize us. When you trade mention the ads in your school publication and thus make the publication a success.” Thus, you can see that this co¬ operation of school and community is nothing new in Salem, but that it has been stressed by other staffs. Theirs is our message to the student body of ’41. Jefferson CJjcater " ,e " ai ;: l : " - vl ” " High-Class Vaudeville and the Worlds Best in Life Motion Pictures Malinees, 2:30 to 5:30 p. m.

Mrs. Pedigo likes puns and Irish jokes. She gets a bigger laugh out of a mixture of the two. Mrs. Strickler (having a rare sense of humor) likes a good joke any time. Mrs. Strickler is also famous for her dialect readings and jokes. Mr. Miller seems to have an inclination toward music and art. Some¬ day he may be a finished musician (and I do mean FINISHED). Miss Spradlin likes pupils to speak their minds ( ' f they possess such) while in her sociology c ' ass. But here is a tip, you had better speak with logic! Miss Moore likes her Civics students to have their cases and units up on time. And don’t forget to learn the preamble!

Turner believes in work and plenty of it, so if you want things to go smoothly, better have your drill book, notebook, pencil and a recipient mind, and leave your childish, playful ways outside when you report to Room 216; for this lady can get more Composition and Grammar out of you in an hour than any one person you ever saw, if she does supervise the Annual, too. (By the way, don’t try talking instead of doing your assignment if she goes in the Annual Room next door, for we do believe she can see right through that wall.) In case any of you are interested, Airs. Rice can distinguish between LATIN and PIG-LATIN, so don’t try to get through on the barnyard variety. Aliss Webb doesn’t like for Chemistry I students to mix explosives, so don’t try it unless you want your head up on the Roanoke College campus singing “I Ain’t Got No Body.” And, girls, don’t forget teachers are becoming more averse to this thing of applying make-up and combing one’s hair in the classroom! Don’t talk out of turn and don’t take too many shots at the basket in the gym if you aspire to get along with Coach Denton.

Could it be that the teachers were late leaving home in the morning, instead of the students, and had no time to eat their breakfast: Better be careful how you juggle those biological terms in Air. Watkin’s class. Even the most level-headed teachers can’t stand to see the language which they speak literally butchered by a lot of people who don’t know protoplasm from chloraphyl. What ever you do, please don’t play with those typewriters while Aliss Goodwin is talking, and above all don’t ring the bells. If you have not already learned you will soon learn not to cross the librarian, for she is as much a member of the faculty as any other person here, and she wields much power also. And we would let you know that if you don’t join some clubs you are not enjoying your short stay at A. L. We endorse the Hi-Y Club for boys and the Girl Reserves for girls, and don’t overlook the Choral Club. These are only suggestions, take the club of your choice, and give it cooperation. You are losing great dividends if you don’t (not monetary, of course). Visit Our CURTIS G.

When you get to Plane Geometry, under Miss Annie McConkey, always have your lesson prepared, but in case you don’t, don’t say “I didn’t have time,” for she says that those who say they don’t have time, never even tried. And the only fault you can find with her is that she is usually right. We Seniors leave these wise words behind as we pass on to the cold, cold world. Take interest in Andrew Lewis, make a name for it by having a cooperative spirit, and by doingyour part in the extra-curricular activities.
