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.

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.

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.
