The Beta Club MRS. CARRIE MARTIN PEDIGO, SPONSOR The Andrew Lewis Chapter of the National Beta Club was organized in . 1936. The first installation included twenty-six members of the senior class. Since that time we have had each year a spring installation adding members of the junior family to the club. The total membership to date is 192. 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 stand¬ ards. The presidents of the Beta Club have been Shirley Hoover, Martin Wil- bourne, McClellan Whitmore, Robert Greene, David Thornton, Bob Logan and James Sluss. Although the club has been in existence eight years, we have had only seven presidents. The change from four years to five years required for grad¬ uation caused the 1943 group to remain in school another year. In the spring election the club unanimously reeleeted all four of their officers: James Sluss, pre¬ sident; Charles Richardson, vice-president; Jane Sumpter, secretary; Anne Ro¬ well, treasurer. Although war conditions prevented our holding regular meetings and pre¬ paring special programs, we have done a fairly good year’s work. We led the school in a paper salvage campaign and earned one hundred dollars. Prac¬ tically every member of the club has taken an active part in some worthy pro¬ ject sponsored by members of the faculty. Our club has received the honor of having its president, James Sluss, elected president of Virginia Beta Clubs. Nearly all of the boys who have gone out of our club are now in the service of their country. Only one of our girls is in the service. Ann Akers is in the WAVES, and has taken her training at Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts. Of our present members. William Bain and William Gentry have already been inducted into the Army Air Corps.

The Andrew Lewis Band The band, under the direction of Mr. L. Christensen, has worked hard this year, but not in vain. So far they have had only two assembly programs, but they have both been successful, if applause can be taken as a judge. Aside from playing for all the school football games, the band also played at the Thanksgiving game between Maryland and V. P. I., on the side of Maryland. Although the band trips that have been so greatly enjoyed in the past were an impossibility this year, they are willing to make this sacrifice in the face of the great sacrifices of the day. The school is very proud of the band which helps so much to cheer and pep up, not only the people in the school, but also those in the community. The drum majorettes are Evelyn Frank, June Garrett and Florence Kime. Projection Club THE DEPARTMENT OF AUDIO-VISUAL EDUCATION Since Pearl Harbor every branch of the armed services has stepped up its training program through the use of audio-visual aids. The time required to develop a certain degree of skill has in many instances been materially reduced by using specially prepared Audio-Visual aids. As the result of this use by the armed services and industry there is no doubt that Audio-Visual Aides will be used more than ever before as a regular part of any educational program in the school of the future. Andrew Lewis High School will be ready to meet this need with its fine equipment and highly trained students, in the form of a club known as the Projection Club. This year the Projection Club has carried the heaviest program since the department was organized. These fine students are helping to bring victory by serving their school at a time when it is most needed. Besides the everyday classroom films which are shown, this club has a regu¬ lar monthly feature. Either a movie is presented or some outside speaker comes to us. These pictures and speakers are both educational and interesting. This club is under the supervision of Selden Watkins, teacher in the science department.

Girl Reserves The main project of the Girl Reserves for the year has been the sale of war bonds and stamps. They have erected a booth at one end of the hall especially for this purpose. Each Girl Reserve has her own day for selling and is in com¬ plete charge of the booth at her allotted period. The total sales to date, March 13 , are $1,705.00. In December the Girl Reserves entertained the student body with the pre¬ sentation of a playlet “Red Hot Ridin’ Hood,” which was also presented for the Lions Club a few weeks later. During this month, a tea was given in honor of the faculty in the Home Economics Department. The special feature in February was a dinner dance for the Athletic Associa¬ tion, carried out in a Valentine motif. The newly organized Junior Girl Reserves, of approximately 50 members, have as their sponsor Miss Jananne Larson. They have taken over the paper drive, collecting it daily and then turning it in to the community. The officers of the Senior Girl Reserves are: President—Betty Crawford; vice-president, Minnie Lee Bowman; secretary, Helen Sue Macom; treasurer, Marilyn Holliday; program chairman, Jane Sumpter; bond chairman, Jo Ann Foster; sponsors, Aminee W. Jones and Nancy C. Pierpont. The members of the Senior Girl Reserves are: Minnie Lee Bowman, Betty Broome, Barbara Campbell, Dixie Carter, Jackie Clinevell, Norma Cox, Betty Crawford, Betty Jane Dean, Kathleen Dickenson, Jo Ann Foster, Evelyn Frank, Joyce Galbraith, Betty Jean Garst, Juanita Graham, Louise Harris, Jeanne Hann, Betty Ruth Haupt, Opal Helton, Marilyn Holliday, Dorothy Ann Johnston, Florence Kime, Phyllis Kingery, Ann Lumsden, Helen Sue Macom, Betty Mar¬ lowe, Peggy Marlowe, Geneva McKinney, Lou Messick, Betty Phillips, Grace Poff, Martha Price, Barbara Rakes, Jane Sumpter, Frances Weeks. The Forensic Group The National Forensic League members combined with the public speaking class made up our Forensic Group. On account of the difficulties of transporta¬ tion the activities have been almost wholly confined to our school. A Thanks¬ giving play, a spring play, and several assembly programs have been sponsored by these boys and girls. A special program “The Four Freedoms,” was given by the N. F. L. mem¬ bers. The county-city literary tournament held in Roanoke was one of our high¬ lights and the American Legion Contest held on Armistice Day, in which Hugh Brand won first place and Anne Obenshain second, was an event of which we were proud. All in all, the aim of the organization is to develop the talents of the mem¬ bers for reading and speaking so that they may be useful to their communities at all times and especially in emergencies.
