For their compe¬ tent leadership of the Pioneer Staff and their untiring efforts in carrying out all the big and little details that go into the making of an annual, they have earned no laurels. Your approval of the result will provide that reward. MARY FRANCES PARRIS, Editor HORACE BARNETT, Business Manager FORTY-FIVE Alma Mater Oh, Andrew Lewis, school adored, Our Alma Mater dear, Fond memories of thee we 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. THE PIONEER Dedication To Mrs. Pearl C. Strickler, a teacher known and loved by all, we, the Staff of ’45, wish to dedicate this edition of the Pioneer. Mrs. Strickler teaches English Grammar and English Literature and has some strange power that makes English appealing to her students. She also teaches public speaking and is the faculty advisor of the National Forensic League. Often, while walking down the Senior hall, we hear, “Massa John, Pse come home,” or “Mammie, wheah ya gwine?”. Turning to see who is speaking, we find Mrs. Strickler, arms outstretched, her glasses on the tip of her nose, reciting a Negro dialect poem to her public speaking class. To us, she is an example of everything we may ever hope to be—lovable, genial, sympathetic, intellectual, versatile, understanding—she is “Our Ideal.” FORTY.FIVE Foreword As the Class of ’45 and other classes to come leave Andrew Lewis, we know that they will take with them the everlasting memories of activities carried on at our Alma Mater. We, the Pioneer Staff of 1945, present to you this book and sincerely hope that it will help you to retain these memories. It has been said, “Without a song, the day would never end,” and, believing this to be true, we have endeavored to bring to you, through the pages of this edition of the Pioneer, the old familiar melodies we all know and love. To anyone who has ever attended this school, such songs as “Alma Mater,” “Blue Team,” “Sons of Andrew Lewis,” and “Salem High Spirit,” will never be forgotten as they symbolize the happy and carefree days spent here.

But we made it—still living and breathing just like any other human being. After working and struggling to get the clubs, pictures, copy, etc., together on time, we have no fear of life’s problems which we will meet after graduation—they couldn’t be any worse. Especially, though, were things difficult to accomplish this year. Every time the editor would try to have something typed or try to get a picture taken, we would get a reply similar to this: “Sorry, Pm two weeks behind in my typing already,” or “We’re rehearsing for an assembly program,” or “Can’t do it, I’m due at a Hi-Y meeting in exactly two minutes,” or “I have to get a report on ‘The Theory of Electronics’ before fifth period.” Sometimes she had to do a little work herself, which, of course, was very unusual. But after it’s all over, we find we’ve really had fun working together with Miss Alice Lindsey, our faculty advisor, in publishing the 1945 edition of the Pioneer. 4 n FORTY-FIVE A. L. H. S.

H. Spruhan. The club was formed around a nucleus of eight members and after the football and basket ball season, the new letter winners were voted in the club. The activities of the club have been somewhat curtailed, like other clubs due to the war. We have had one dance. As this writing goes to press we are planning a dance and a banquet for the members of the club at the end of the basket ball season. THE MEMBERS OF THE MONOGRAM CLUB David Miller, Guy H.

Faculty Advisor The Projection Club is an organization which was formed for the purpose of operat¬ ing the equipment provided for the school’s audio-visual education. The club has rendered valuable service in this school and has also aided the student member by broadening his fields of interest. The Club was founded six years ago and has progressed rapidly under the direction of its sponsor, Mr. Selden H. Watkins. This club is composed of nineteen members at this time. The boys keep the equipment in order, show films in the classrooms and in the auditorium, make slides, operate the slide machine, and set up the speakers and amplifier for assemblies and other programs. They also take quite a number of pictures for the annual. Since no films for machine movies are available this year, we have not made movies of school activities as we have done in previous years. The girls in the club have charge of the secretarial work and of keeping the Projection room in order.

President Joe Brogan . Vice President Mary Frances Parris . Secretary Bill Shaw . Treasurer Mrs. L. G. Pedigo . Faculty Advisor The purpose of the Beta Club is to encourage effort, to promote character, to stimulate achieve¬ ment, to cultivate leadership qualities, and to encourage and assist students to continue their education after high school graduation. The Andrew Lewis Beta Club was organized in the fall of 1936, with a membership of twenty- six. Today, the total membership is thirty-one with twenty-five others who will become members this spring. Of the total membership in nine years, only 64 out of a total of 279 were boys. This club is an important factor in the life of Andrew Lewis High School as it encourages scholar¬ ship, leadership and develops the highest type of character. This pledge, which each member makes his aim, explains the real meaning of the Beta Club. “ I solemnly declare that I shall always strive to hold fast to the principles of honesty; to cultivate in my life and conduct the principles which The National Beta Club is organized to encourage. I further pledge myself to cooperate with the members of this club in the promotion of a sense of individual responsibility to our school, community, state and nation; to make right the master of might; and to consecrate our fellowship to mutual helpfulness and to the betterment of our fellow students.” To become a member of this great organization is not simply to join another club. It means that a person has earned by faithful work and acceptable behavior—the honor of being among the leaders in this school. It means also that he is a member of the larger group of young Americans in fifteen states organized for the encouragement of scholarship and the development of good citizenship.

Librarian THE LIBRARY STAFF The Library Staff consists of twenty-one girls who devote one hour each day to the library. They perform all routine desk duties, e. g., stamping and filing passes, carding books, putting books on the shelves, typing, and minor mending. They are not paid for the work, but they receive an extra¬ curricula credit on their report cards. The library could not remain open from 8:30 a. m. to 4:00 p. m., without the assistance of these students. Most of the girls who work in the library belong to the Library Club which meets after school on alternate Tuesdays. The programs vary from the literary to bowling.

Records, bulletins, phone calls, reports—all these must have attention and you’ll find the office students right on the job. Under the supervision of Miss Hester Lee Howell, the school secretary, and Miss Beulah Jones, commercial instructor, the office students help to keep things running smoothly. These students are learning how to work with others so they will be better prepared to meet the public when their high school days are over. The Office Practice Club meets weekly for the purpose of discussing problems related to business. Each member spends one hour daily in the school office applying principles learned from discussions in the club meetings. In spite of glares and stares, the girls like their job and they like you. The club members have spent extra hours preparing programs for the enjoyment of the school. One that all will remember was “The Faculty Album;” another, the radio program on “Will I Have a Job After the War?” The members of the Office Practice Club wish to express their appreciation to the faculty and students for their splendid cooperation during the past year.

ATHLETICS THE PIONEER FOOTBALL Frank Shelor Guy Spruhan The Andrew Lewis Football Team of 1944, although not equal to some of the powerful Salem teams of the past, gave a good account of itself during the season. Coach Guy H. Spruhan, in his first year at Salem for many years, with the assistance of Jim Peters, a member of the Lewis faculty, turned out a fighting team that never knew when to die. Although greatly handicapped by lack of experience and reserves, the Wolve¬ rines knew how to take it and come back fighting. This, they proved many times during the season for “Lady Luck” never smiled toward Salem. The lack of experience was not too greatly shown by the first team as most of them had played the year before but there were hardly any experienced players among the few Salem reserves. And in a close, hard-fought game, this lack really showed. Salem and the nearby parts of the county really need a sandlot football program to compete with the other class A schools of the state. The Wolverines won victories over the other two county schools—William Byrd and William Fleming, and E. C. Glass of Lynchburg but lost to Portsmouth, Roanoke, and Danville. Two games—Christiansburg and Charlottesville, were called off because of rain and bad playing conditions. 02 L FORTY-FIVE FOOTBALL Despite all these difficulties and bad breaks, the team, led by Co-Captains Guy Spruhan, Jr., and Frank Shelor, worked hard, learned a great deal, and played good ball. The Co-Captains were both selected as City-County All Stars, and Andrew Lewis can well be proud of them and all the rest of the Wolverines. Andrew Lewis 19— William Byrd 13 The Wolverines opened their 1944 season with a win over a scrappy but out¬ played Vinton team. Spruhan scored twice for Salem, and Thomas plunged for the third touchdown. Although Byrd gave Salem a scare with their two touch¬ downs, the actual game was clearly a victory for Andrew Lewis. Andrew Lewis 16— William Fleming 7 The game started off just as the previous one with Salem marching for a touchdown by Spruhan early in the game; but Fleming came back and fought Salem to a standstill during the second and third quarters. Lewis began clicking again late in the game, but time ran out. Guy Spruhan’s extra point and the defensive play of Shelor and Kinsey were the leading factors in this victory for Andrew Lewis. •gf 63 b THE PIONEER Football Season Andrew Lewis o—Portsmouth 6 When the Wolverines went on the Portsmouth field for this game, they were clearly the under¬ dogs; but when they came off, they had won a moral victory. Afost of the playing was in mid- field or better, and several times Salem drove deep into Woodrow Wilson territory only to lose the ball on downs or pass interceptions. Ports¬ mouth scored in the first half on a series of long runs; but after this, the game turned into a de¬ fensive battle. The entire team, especially Dave Miller and Spruhan looked great during this game which was easily the hardest fought and best game Salem played all year. Andrew Lewis 7—Jefferson 21 The score of this game tells the story. Salem fought hard, but Roanoke’s power and reserves were too much for the Wolverines. Andrew Lewis used all their plays and ability but could only score on a screen pass from Guy Spruhan to Bill Shaw, who ran about fifty yards for the touch¬ down. Salem completed some other nice passes but could not threaten Jefferson too seriously while sheer magician manpower rolled to three touchdowns. Andrew Lewis played good ball, but it was the same old story of too much Roanoke experience and reserve strength for the Wolve¬ rines. Guy Spruhan Back Ira Feazell Tackle Bill Kinzie Tackle H. R.

Dave Miller scored two touchdowns—one on a pass and the other on an end-around play. Frank Shelor scored on another end-around, and Guy Spruhan ran the fourth touchdown over. Lynch¬ burg scored on a long pass and a safety but were never really in the game as the Lewis line was vastly superior to the Hilltoppers. Andrew Lewis o—Danville 14 This was another close, hard-fought game. George Washington, who tied for the State Championship, scored one touchdown in each half while Salem’s greatest threat was in the second quarter. They drove deep into Danville territory, but a pass interception, as the half was ending, stopped the Wolverines. This was the last game at Andrew Lewis for about twelve of the players. Although they would have liked to win, they had nothing to be ashamed of in the out¬ come.

Andrew Lewis won twelve games and lost only three during the regular season but were defeated in the state Class A semi-finals at Alexandria—35-30. The other losses were to Army reservists at V. M. I., George Washington High of Dan¬ ville, and Thomas Jefferson of Richmond. However, all of these losses were away from home and each of these teams was soundly defeated in Salem. Led in scoring by Dave Miller with 273 points and Guy Spruhan with 227, the high scoring Wolverines, who set a new Salem record with 602 points, won both the Class A Western District and the Roanoke City-County Championships. The only loss in district games was a very close 36-35 defeat in Danville. However, the Danville team was easily beaten in a return game 62-44 while both Roanoke and Lynchburg were defeated twice. The City-County Championship was easier to win as Jefferson was defeated twice, and William Byrd and William Fleming were both easy prey for the high-stepping Wolverines. In the game at Vinton, Andrew Lewis had a field day and ran up their largest score of the season, winning 72-19. The climax of the season was the second Roanoke game which decided the District Championship. Before the largest crowd ever to see a game in the Lewis gym, the Wolverines defeated the Jeffs 45-30 and proved that their previous victory in Roanoke had not been a mistake. 4 66 FORTY-FIVE The Season David Miller, Guy Spruhan, and Bill Shaw, all of whom had played at least two previous seasons, alternated as game Captains throughout the season. The other two members of the starting five were George Graybill and Frank Shelor, both of whom had won letters the previous year. The only other members of Coach Spruhan’s un¬ usually small squad were Charlie Webber and Dickie Bunting.

FORTY-FIVE Girls ' Sports BASKET BALL Basket Ball is the favorite sport among the girls of Andrew Lewis High School. Enough girls have entered after-school basket ball to form io teams with the teams being determined by the classifications in school. The winning team will either play the faculty or be given a special privilege. The junior team won this honor by defeating the senior team. SOFTBALL “Please let me play softball,” is a very familiar saying heard by Miss Larson. A great many girls show interest in this sport helping to create keen competition. TENNIS A single’s and double’s tournament was scheduled for this spring. June Crosswhite and Doris Lee Howell won first and second places. PING-PONG This game is enjoyed by many of the girls here at school on rainy days when physical education is carried on in the auditorium.

Leader (Not Pictured) The Season GIRLS’ PHYSICAL EDUCATION It is the purpose of the girls’ Physical Education Department to develop poise, to set up ideals, attitudes, habits and standards of living which will be beneficial to students as individuals and leaders. In the classes which average eighty girls, and in the after-school sports in which many girls participate, are brought out the lesson of cooperation, develop¬ ment of a sense of leadership, and the lesson of sportsmanship. They are all valua¬ ble traits to carry through life, for they enable individuals to enjoy life within themselves and to enjoy life through virtue of getting along with other people. Let us not forget that a very important fact in physical education is coordina¬ tion of movement and rhythm of activity result in a physically adjusted girl. Physical education is a very great influence on the development of the “whole person.” Jonanne Larson BOYS’ PHYSICAL EDUCATION This year’s Physical Education program is being carried on as well as possible considering the handicap under which we are working. Since we lack the proper equipment for and intensive course in Physical Education, the present program is intended to give both work and play to the students for one hour each day. It is believed that this system assists also in developing coordination and teamwork. Now is the time to make plans for a postwar system which would allow enough room for a thousand students to take gym inside one hour each day, since the problem is a big one and will require a lot of study and work to complete satis¬ factorily. { 70 Coach Spruhan ADVERTISEMENTS BOYLE-SWECKER TIRE COMPANY Third Street and Church Avenue, S.
