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.

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.

Bennett, Librarian The Andrew Lewis Library aims to provide the students and teachers with adequate books, newspapers and magazines for reference work and recreational reading. The library contains 8277 volumes and has a seating capacity of 118. It has an attractive reading room, reference room, librarian’s work room and stor¬ age room. Growing plants and colorful displays make the library an attractive place in which to read for pleasure or to do reference work. A quiet atmosphere prevails to encourage concentration and enjoyment of reading. The library sponsored a poster contest during Book Week in November 1943. First prize was won by Joyce Galbraith (208); 2nd prize by Scott Doyle (208); 3rd prize by Mary O’Bierne (308); 4th prize by Baxter Duffy (208); and 5th prize by Jean Hann (208). The library staff had its annual Christmas party just before the holidays. Nineteen girls serve as Student Assistants. They do all the routine work, e. g. stamping and filing passes, carding books, shelving books, reading shelves, typing and filing cards, etc. These assistants contribute a great deal to the school in keeping the library running smoothly. Their service is invaluable. They serve without pay, but receive an extra-curricula credit grade on their report cards.
