- ANDREW LEWIS MIDDLE SCHOOL Salem, Virginia m -• i CN -V To k I 3 % V 5 -Q Zke 1949 Pioneer Published By THE STUDENT BODY OF ANDREW LEWIS HIGH SCHOOL SALEM, VIRGINIA DEDICATION To you who have brought immortal music to all of us, music that lingers everlastingly in every soul— To you whose untiring efforts in the past years have brought widespread fame for your wonderful work in the choir and in the band— To you who have always shown such great kindness, understanding, and friend¬ liness toward every one of us— It is to you, Mrs. Peery and Mr. Christensen, as a token of our love and deep appreciation for all you have done, that we, the staff of ’49, gratefully dedi¬ cate this edition of The Pioneer. - FOREWORD “The harvest is at hand”; the Class of ’49, having completed five years of preparation, is now ready to reap the golden grain—“graduation.” With high hopes for the future, the joys of new paths that lie before us, and perhaps also a sigh of regret for the past to be left behind, we pass on into the glorious sunlight of the future. This land of the future as it flashes before us on the screen is different from that of our parents. There will be new scientific advances such as television, already introduced, new social ideas, new scenes—in a word, a new world. We seek our “Eldorado”—our place in the sun—the golden horde of experience, learning, and human companionship. Some of us will become the “electricians” and “technicians” of this new world; others will gain the spotlights; the opportuni¬ ties are endless. But, wherever Fate may send us, whatever may befall us, the memories of those early days at Andrew Lewis will be with us. For a few brief moments let us concentrate on the television screen flashing before us familiar scenes of the past as well as those which are to come. May this ’49 Pioneer help us to relive the fun, the rare moments of success and achievement, and the familiar, unsuspectedly dear routine of our high school days. To the Readers of the Pioneer—Greetings and Good Wishes: The broad purpose of the American high school is to promote the develop¬ ment of its students for effective personal and social living, and to help them be¬ come worthy members of a democratic society. To the accomplishment of this purpose Andrew Lewis High School dedicates itself anew. As the years pass and new groups of students come for instruction and guidance, the school shall attempt to do all that it can through its instructional program and extra-curricular offerings to promote the worth and dignity of each member who may become a part of the Andrew Lewis family. To the Class of ' 49, I extend congratulations! Collectively and individually this graduating class has made its contribution to the ideals which Andrew Lewis High School cherishes. In the years to come may each of you be as good a citizen in the nation as you have been a good citizen in your high school. Faithfully yours, E. B.

Martha Kime. Pat Smiley. . President Vice President . . . Secretary Treasurer Many important events have occurred in the “49’s” throughout the centuries. In 1649 Charles I of England was beheaded; in 1749 the governor of Pennsylvania made Benjamin Franklin commissioner of the peace; in 1849 there was the great California gold rush; and now 1949 will be marked by a great event—our gradua¬ tion. This is the “Year of Jubilo” to us, this year of 1949. To some it is the Emancipation Proclamation, but to others it is the tolling of the death knell, for at the end of this school year they shall have to part with some of the friends they have grown to know and love. But all is not sadness. In the years that lie ahead we shall recall our high school days, and their memory will be a source of joy to us. Some will remember going to the football games and cheering for our heroes and our school; others will recall the formals, club meetings on Wednesday mornings, “butterflies” before exams, and getting an “A” on the test “I just know I failed.” We will never forget the Senior Program, the Senior Play, Senior Day, and the Junior-Senior Prom. These were ours alone and will always belong to us. Yes, to some it will be the tolling of the death knell, but is it the end? This is just the beginning of our lives, and in the years to come when we have settled down, we will rea lize that these were the best years of our lives, only because they were the first. 4 10 }y Spelled backwards, her name is “I moan,” But Naomi is cheerful at school or at home. x plus y 2 = U x for all the things you do An’ y 2 makes me now declare That I know U are no square. Paris chose Helen— Oh, gay Paree! May you and your Helen Ever happy be. At Smead and Webber’s mixing cokes Alice is cracking nuts—or jokes! Ellen’s sweet and “Tres petite,” Someone you would like to meet. When over his books he should be porin’, You’ll always find our Dalton, snorin’. As fine in school as on the guitar, Her personality’s never “bittar.” 4 A hlhnU Bouuac ) . ' Sfrsi , r r 11 A beaming light for all to see; A nurse in white she longs to be. Can you bake—a chocolate cake As well as read a book? Is your muffin—a tough one? Clyde—can you cook? Blosser blossoms a big A. L. His personality sure can sell. Though he’s Blount he’s really keen— Just shows how little a name can mean. Handsome Ben—he’s just one plan, You see, he’s really a ladies’ man. A gal whose heart is kinda gold-ish, But whose approach is rather Boldish. Cecil’s a modern Danny Boone, An F. F. A. boy—right in tune. A. L. will B AIT After U go, U C, 4 U R a QT. A happy-go-lucky, wise-cracking lad, Sometimes, but seldom, you ' ll see him sad. 12 Bill Shakespeare wrote about Hamlet— We’ll sing praises of Martha Bramlett. When Dr. Brammer comes to town, His pills and stuff don’t make you frown, They’re pills of happiness, we’ve found A hurry and a scurry Almost not in time, A bustle and a hustle But cute as a dime. Dr. Brown is a hit with the nurses, He sends them all away in hearses. A talking, walking cane, A candy cane, A sugar cane, Evelyn Cain, They’re all the same! Here’s a girl that tops them all, She’s really slender, tender, and tall. For every Snapp course she’s the slave, Poor girl! It’s freedom she docs crave. Tops in glamour as in Beta, Betty Jean’s really a “hot potato.” 13 K P ' (2 22 $ mt AlMAi Uf C-Vxujt. U yynQlvw ' ■ c -wiT (2 She wants to be Young And is headin’ for satin, Just so she’s not mixed up And cheerin’ in Latin. A modern Cicero Or else a “ Bing,” In television He’ll sure be king. As sweet as Chocolate is mighty sweet, She’s really a joy—and can’t be beat Here’s to our Queen Anne, The fairest of the clan. Hark! Hark! It’s Rhea Clark— He’ll make his mark. Night-hawk Sidney—really cute! He’s the pride of the institute. To president Fayth of the S. C. A.: We’ll miss you when you’ve gone away. Don’t forget Jan-et She’s swell, you bet. 14 j§8- Martha met George Washington And history was made then, Why don’t you meet a White House boy And have Martha there again? We’ve heard your praises often sung But always by some feminine tongue, You cannot help attract the Miss, Your fatal charms they can’t resist. I dinna ken Kenny But I bet ye a penny He’s as tight as Jack Benny, If ye ask for a penny. No need to Crowe, We all well know, In football He’s sure to show! This majorette’s a right slick chick, With swishing skirts and heels that click. To “dear-old-Cush” let’s drink a toast, Of this fine girl we’ll always boast. With mint juleps and magnolias We’ll toast this Virginia gal, To show how much we like her And want her for a pal. Her parents initiated her F. A. D., In school our favorite fad is she. «f 15 Where’s that gal they all want to know? “Peekaboo,” it’s beauteous Jo. « 1 D mpt r 6 0 " Up at Norman’s or out at the cabin, You’ll always find pretty Phyllis gabbin’. Nurse Betty, for pills I thank you, But next time take care; You see they removed my nose — The wart is still there. “15 cheers for the G. O. P.” The only one left is our own Billy. Phyllis, don’t kill us With your cooking— Phyllis, don’t chill us With your looking. A popular young lady is our Miss Eller, Some day she’ll cook for a regular fellow. If you’re lookin’ for our Snookie — Look outside —he’s playin’ hookie. Whether it’s rain or whether it’s snow, There’s always a camera followed by Bo. 4 16 Like $$$ bills he sure can fly, If you don’t believe it, ask Jeff Hi. The reason?—Ask Pat why! I bank, you bank, he banks. We bank on Eubanks, and You bet, Betty Eubanks! If she’s sweet, she’s Farmer’s date, We wonder what he uses for bait. That stuff in her head sure isn’t sawdust, A nice girl and rather modest. Good luck, by the truck To Jackie Ferrill, May Jack make “jack” By the barrel. Leo, the lion-hearted Ferris! If a lion appeared, he’d be embarrassed. Faith and bigorra, it’s Flannagan, She’s tops —and you can say that again. Ze Cisco keed she ees so smart, She knows how to take and break a heart. i. ■) •€{17 } • Once a Little Red Riding Hood Met a chap like this in the wood, “Pardon me,” said she, “Yum, yum,” said he, As he ate her as fast as he could. This gypsy lover is “Campus News,” A wonderful guy we’ll sure hate to lose. While beatin’ Beethoven, Or Chopin she’s choppin’, This smart little lass There’s no chance of stoppin’. The old maid’s heartthrob, Melvin Garman, He cultivates “tomatoes” in his farmin’. To leave ole A. L. This lass can’t bear it, Quite a kid, This Virginia Garrett. Charlotte Ann Garst We’d tell you if we darst That when you’re gone—we’re lost. This Good boy is tops with the tooter, And we think there’s no one cuter. A sweater green, and a carrot top, It doesn’t walk nor does it hop. It’s a sure cure for boredom— What is it? It’s Herbert Gordon. 4 18 fa Commodore Stanley eats his cracker, A fine fellow who’s surely no slacker. Trubie always goes for models; Anyone he’d like to coddle— (Airplane models, of course). W2H his formula is. In Math he surely is a whiz. Monsieur Charles speaks in French, Although he’s not Boyer. He’s right in tune—just hear him croon; “Parlez-vous francais?” Calm and quiet is our Eloise, She’s not hot-tempered nor in the deep freeze. We all go for Harmon eyes And a Harmon smile as well, We’d like to Harmon-ize ‘Cause Nellie rings the bell. Murlene, a siren, With a come-hither smile, Sister, we like your style. £jL.nL t U-.i x . : y lcx- 1 J { 19 } In ’49 we lose our Hart— A swell guy, and plenty smart. Here’s to our dependable Bobby- Painting the town’s his dependable hobby. ' ' 0 h $ if f t o 4 -uJ$- O $ ' o+ , Flash! his news is always hot-dated— Flash! he’s campaigning November 2— Flash! his logic can’t be debated — We know Tom will always come through. When is the Glenn a Hayes? (Please answer right.) When is the Glenn a Hayes? When the son isn’t bright. Charming Charlotte’ll dine on pheasant, ‘Cause her personality’s incandescent. In her “Little White House Just for Two,” We hope our Mae’ll never be blue. The unicorn Has a horn— But it’s true, Betty has, too. The sweetness of sugar, an’ strawberries an’ cream, A touch of spice—makes our Doris Jean. Old Mother Flubbard went to the cupboard. What did she find there? Little Pat Hubbard. A date in the dark For this camera shark— Means photographic mixtures To develop his “pixtures.” A sinister leer from Harry Means—“Ladies, be wary.” Here’s to independent Nancye, She’s cute and sweet, but rather “fancye.” Roses are red, So Violet’s not blue, No Dawn can compare In sweetness to you. This kind of girl keeps your head in a whirl, Not a bit like an oyster, although she’s a pearl. She’s ham and eggs—an’ a touch of caviar; The words to a song, and the spark to a star. A sweet glance from Nancy, Would enhance our fancy. He never moans, This boy named Jones, ’Though his troubles may be Heavy as stones. 4 21 P to « ? 4K J- - ' mJ yCj 7 rv — CrJbn Jtf f)- A r c fit-y- ' A word of gloom from Jo Ann You seldom ever hear, She brightens up our high school And fills it full of cheer. When she’s decoratin’ rooms Or somethin’ else instead, This ruby-throated humming-bird’ll Make ’em ruby red. When it’s time to be eatin’ The one always there is Keaton. Elizabeth, Liza, Lizzie, or Bess, A queen of a girl beyond a guess. There’s not a fairer lass in any sunny clime Than our own pretty May Queen, Martha Kime. Little Johnny Kinder Chopping up the timber, There was a heavy fog They thought he was a log, So now he’s just a cinder. I wonder You wander She’s Wonderful! They say, “All Lanes lead to Rome,” But this Lane leads to his lady’s home. 4 22 “Lavender Blue—Dilly, Dillv, Lavender Green,” She’s really tops—Dilly, dilly, A real Lewis Queen. A lawless Lawson helping Hedda Hopper, In “Et Cetera,” nothin’ it seems ’ll stop her. Comedian Dan—always gabbin’, Maybe C. B. S.’ll grab him. Da day fo’ Etta Mae, Da betta, betta day, Is da day—dat dey all say, “Etta Mae—Weddin’ Day. J J A “scatterbrain” in “stormy weather,” She’s cute as a dime and quick as a feather. J for Jazzy—that’s her speed, A for artful—better heed! M for merry—that’s our lamb, Put them together, an’ they make JAM. In this case it’s rather confusin’, When I’m seein’ one, I’m seein’ twos’n. Trie ?c 4 23 } The other one of the pair of two, We hear he’s a camera bug, too. Dashing, crashing Don McGhee, A gay caballero—fiddle dee dee. No. 71—McNutt, Who made that touchdown? Who else but! Who would ask for Moore? We do, When we need him, he always comes through. Morgan, the pirate gal is she, She’ll steal your heart and keep the key. James, James, good at games, He plays with boys, but prefers the dames. News staff Nancy with a nose for news, Personality plus really counts, she proves. We’re owin’ Our own Betty Owen A moan— ‘Cause she is goin’. Jean, are you a Jenne or a genie? Could you grant us our wishes 1, 2, 3? If you’re a genie, don’t be a meanie, Jean. 4 24 } Wanda, Wanda, don’t wander away, We really want you, Wanda, to stay. Don’t look for wings or a halo golden, If he’s had ’em, he probably sold ’em. So fast this perky Perkins makes baskets That he causes a big demand for caskets. When the sun shines bright on Capitol Dome, There John’ll be—right at home. Hello, Hello, Keturah Pillow! Wherever you go, We wish you the best of luck, you know. Little David plunk-at vour harp, Don’t Bb, B . Plywood Plybon, plenty tough — His heart is heavy as a love puff. When Dick Powell Is on the prowl Women howl! 25 C- Q p QVv Ks ' Sc ' Vvq tn. This gal’s neat An’ mighty sweet; You sure can’t beat Our very own Pete. “What news,” we asked, “is your food “A diet of Rice,” we conclude. Hard-boiled or scrambled — He’s a good egg. With a cheery smile For which we all beg. Harum, scarum, Madcap you— When you’re not here, What will we do? Strife rhymes with Rife, Rife rhymes with wife, With that we wish you a peaceful life. The initials of your name— If you add a “ling,” Make what we think of you — It says everything. If you prefer a blond, sir, Why would you Rush, sir, further? A Schaffer drawing With Shaffer pen, In math her grades Equal IO times io. Sir Harless Scott of chivalry, A knight in armor he longs to be. This colonel lets Yankees live in peace, son, As long as they’re north of the Mason-Dixon. Mary was a little shepherdess Looking for her sheep, Look in Wytheville, dearie, There you may happiness keep. A bit of a wit And always a hit. —She’s it! Pat’s “Pat” So that’s that! ! ! Ye gentle maide from ye olde Salem towne Remember to smile and never frown. Napoleon had his Josephine — This we guess is true, But “Nap” didn’t have a thing on us, We have a “Josie,” too. We think he’s as good as Frankie Boy, Our golden-voiced Wayne, But the only singing he ever does Is in the bathtub or rain. ■ Jt njL 4 27 h cZ n. JZ£z An ethereal “rebel” is D. A. R.—ling Donnie, Like her Y-Teens, she’s Sweet, bright, and bonny. She’s the jam of our bread And the “Peg of our Hearts,” We’ll be unpegged When she departs. Mary had a little lamb, Now all Alary eats is Spam, The cost of living causes this, mam. “A rolling stone gathers no moss,” If you find any on him, give it a toss. This gal has ‘Communist’ hair An’ she’s cute beyond compare. Aye, th’ lad’s a right braw Swain, He’ll tak’ ye, lass, doon lover’s lane. “Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true,” They always say that daisies won’t tell, Tell me, Daisy, will you? ‘15 for Tommy Tingler,’ He’s a real bell ringer. 4 28 }• 0 . c Our football hero at “Andy Lou,” He’ll cry when he leaves, and so will you. Negative or affirmative, We’re positive he’s on top, There’s no debate about it, He surely hits the spot. Farmer Turner’ll make his mark some day, ‘Cause he learned his farmin’ the “scientific” way. This shy lass with the rosy complexion Has charms that spread like an infection. This little Wheeler rolls to the goal — She’d rate high in any Gallup poll. He’s the voice He’s on the ball He’s president Of senior hall. We’re really, willy, nilly, silly, About no sweller “feller,” Billy. Wirt worried, were it wise A wife to woo for Wirt? Wait, Wirt, a wife’s a worry Were she Wirt’s, or were she weren’t. WL4 4 29 Were it sad, it yet were so, From old A.

President Vice President . Secretary . . . . Treasurer Impossible, you say? Nothing is impossible at Andrew Lewis. And our proof for that is—we’re going to be Seniors next year! Our Class had the same problem as every other Junior Class, that is, giving the most wonderful Junior-Senior Prom that ever enlivened the gym. Before this wonderful prom could be given, in order to raise money, our Class sponsored the annual basketball clash between the Junior and Senior boys. Next we sponsored an open house, and last, the school enjoyed our assembly, “Spring Variety of 1949.” Next year we hope to enjoy the “leisure” of Senior life and the dignity which characterizes all Seniors. 4 40 THE PIONEER Juniors Juanita Agee Lorene Aldridge Norma Assaid Joan Austin Lawrence Baker Doris Beahm Evelyn Bogle Almeta Bohon Gerald Boone Norma Boone George Bowling Helen Bowman Eleanor Brillhart Joanne Campbell Betty Jean Carper Charles Carper Janet Lee Carter Elizabeth Cawley Winston Chelf Robert Cofer Minnie Collins Wilma Collins Daurice Conner Joan Crawford John Cross Martha Jane Curry Pete Darnall William Davenport Annie Davis Vona Lee Deel DeLois DeHart J.

Treasurer As Sophomores, we are beginning to realize the intrinsic value of our school. We are not only receiving knowledge from our books, but also a better understand¬ ing of the meaning of life. A large number of our Sophomore Class is represented in many of our clubs. Out of two hundred and forty of our members, twenty two have been installed in the Beta Club. Among many of our other honors, the Sophomore Class received the plaque in the Intramural Competition and also won first place in the Window Decorating Contest. When the curtain rises for the Class of ’51, we, as Seniors, will look upon our Sophomore year as one of the greatest of our years at Andrew Lewis. • 3f } THE PIONEER Sophomores Helen Adams Doris Lee Alderman Claudine All Frances Alls Annie Barton Roger Beckner Betty Beeler Barbara Bennett Barbara Bess Sara Bohon Mabery Booher Bennie Boone Donald Bower Jerry Bower Samuel Bower Alan Carter Marian Chapman Robert Franklin Clark Roger Clark Jeanette Coleman Betty Jean Compton Alva Conner Jean Cook Paul Copenhaver, Jr. Betty Corbin Antoinette Cox Joyce Crosswhite Marvin Damewood Marvin Daniel Charles Davenport Alice Ann Davis Morden Charles Dodson Martha Donaldson Joanne Dotson Dorothy Douglas Myra Draper Betty Jane Francisco Don Fritts Carl Curtis Carman Elva Garman Elizabeth Garnand Myrtle Garrett Helen Garst Lewis Garst Walter Garst George Gearhart Lew is Gearhart Deloriese Gebhardt Doris Jean Gordon Margaret Ann Gore Mary Ann Grisso Jack Gunter Imogene Gussler Dorothy Hackman Gordon Hancock John Hankins Harold Hartman Ronald Hartman Robert Hatcher William Haupt { 47 } FORTY-N I N E Sophomores Ella Haynes Imogene Helton Peggy Ann Helton Wallace Helvey Eugene Hendrick Marie Henry Joyce Lee Herrin Alma Hill Gregory Hillenburg Maydene Hoback Jeanne Hobbs Marie Housman Anne Hudgins Colena Hunt Norvell Hunt Ray Jennings Burcelle Johnson Earl Johnston Stephanie Kiernon Wilson Kolmer Ray Lee Jo Ann Lindamood Mary Ann Logan Edgar Loman Sonny Loud Judy Lyons Doris Martin Rita Martin Woody Martin Joe Matisco Jean Scott McCormick J o Anne McDaniel Mildred McDaniel Ralph McDaniel Helen McGue Peggy Miller Mac Minnick Richard Minnix Jean Mitchell Christine Moses Wayne Mowles Louise Murphy Faye Murray Jeanne Myers Arline Naff Dick Normoyle John Obenchain Reba Otey Andrew Lewis Overstreet Barbara Ann Overton James Painter Madie Palmer Elizabeth Paxton Harold Pendleton Elwood Peterson Harold Pillow Joyce Plymale Hugh Poage Sue Powell Tharon Powell 48 Vv THE PIONEER Sophomores Betty Price William Rakes Ruby Reed Marcheta Reese Betty Lou Rettinger Thelma Rhodes Colleen Robertson Kermit Rowe Joseph Rushbrooke Bobbie Saul Xie Mae Saul Fred Schnautz William Sears Gene Sellers Pat Setliff John Shank Betty Sue Shell Lloyd Shelor Louise Shelor Joanne Showalter Nelson Simpson Virginia Simpson Josephine Sink Terry Slusher Doris Smith Philip Smith Ruble Smith Jack Staedel Robert Stanley Joe Stewart Eugene Stultz Ray Stump John Sweeney Betty Taylor Anne Thomason Eunice Thompson Peggy Tyree Dot Underwood Viola Vaughn Frances Vest Helen Wade Douglas Walker Muriel Walker Raymond Watson Anne Webster Opal Webster Eula Wertz Victor West Phyllis Wheeler Furman Whitescarver Lillian Wimmer Mary Alice Woods Margaret Young { 49 FORTY-NIN E I.

Treasurer We, the Senior Class of ’52, are just starting, but we are making a fine begin¬ ning. Already many of our class are showing promise of future leadership. Two Freshmen hold important offices in the Latin Club, one is a cheerleader, one is connected with the newspaper circulation, and one is the second best speller at Andrew Lewis. A genuine interest is shown in school activities by the Freshmen. We are well represented in the Student Christian Association, Latin Club, Library Club, Junior Y-Teens, F. F. A., Hi-Y and other clubs. You can be sure that the ’48-’49 Freshmen will be up front in the future. 4 52 A THE PIONEER Freshmen Novella Agee Betty Akers Robert Alls Charlotte Anderson Smiley Anderson Kenneth Argabright Jack Bailey Phyllis Bandy T.

Just as the three Graces in days of old spun their web, so are we weaving our way into the pattern of life at Andrew Lewis. At first our hands trembled as we took hold of t he shears; the thread easily tangled, and all was confused. But now our loom is more steady. We are trying to create a good pattern in various ways. The 4-H Club, the Projection Club, and the assemblies and meetings of the Eighth Grade are making the threads strong and colorful. We want our work to be creative. May our pattern be one of which Andrew Lewis may be justly proud.

Sponsors Mrs. Rose Little Miss Mary Louise Hearing The Student Council, consisting of sixteen members elected to represent the student body, is in its second year after a brief period of dormancy. Only plans were studied last year. The greatest accomplishment of the current year has been the framing of a new Constitution through the concerted efforts of the Student and Class Councils. This Constitution was read and ap¬ proved in all the home rooms. A vigorous clean-up campaign was held in the spring which developed a consciousness of cleanliness in and around the building. The Student Council also has worked to improve the integrity of the student body. A committee has worked diligently to provide better assemblies throughout the year. Several “open houses” have been sponsored by this organization, all of which have proved very successful. The cooperation and perseverance of our chairman, sponsors, and the student body, have made the attainment of these things possible. 4 6 6 fc- THE PIONEER First Row, Left to Right: Marion.

The second-year class gave a “Roman Romance and Wedding”. . . In the first of a series of lectures by professional people the Reverend Elliott warned us with “Flunko, flunkere’, faculti, fixum,” and followed with an interesting talk on, “The Classics and the Min¬ istry” . . .

The year’s activities began with a Recognition Service in the Salem Presbyterian Church. The spiritual influence of this program has been a light of guidance throughout the year. Our assembly program in connection with the com¬ munity fund campaign gave a boost to the campaign here at school. The program was presented in the form of a skit in which the girls in the club took part. 4 70 } THE PIONEER First Row, Left to Right: Martha Jean Donaldson, Maydene Ilohack, Douglas Anri Lewis, Carolyn Leffel, Mar y Ellen Whitmore, Ann St. Clair, Myra Draper, Dot Douglas, Joyce Owens, Lillian Wimmer, Joan Haupt, Sue Powell.

Senior Y-Teens The annual “Hanging of the Greens” ceremony was undoubtedly a success. The “Gathering the Greens” party at the Fraziers’ made this one of the most pleasant experiences of the whole year. Our Christmas formal was a beautiful and festive occasion and was enjoyed by all participants. Two open house dances were sponsored by our club at the “Y” in Roanoke. Delegates from our club attended four conferences, both local and district. The annual Football-Basketball Banquet was held as a conclusion to our social program for the year. As social service projects this year, donations to the Mercy House and a special overseas package were included. During April the girls carried on the Lily sales for the Virginia Crippled Children Society. One of the most outstanding features of the Y-Teens’ work has been the promotion of the Teen-Age Center. The cooperation and enthusiasm displayed by the girls of this group have made possible this very successful year. f 71 FORTY-NINE First Row, Left to Right: Nancy Carroll, Georgie Buterakos, Lois Stultz, Dorothy Johnson, Marcelene Smith, Evelyn Sprouse, Glenna Dulaney, Shirley Garst, Sagen Kime, Jackie Frazier, Boogie Stevens, Eleanor Porterfield, Ellen O ' Neill, Elaine Holliday, Barbara Mitchell.

Sponsor “To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character” has been this club’s full purpose this year. The Andrew Lewis Hi-Y Club got off to an early start. By sponsoring a football hop, assemblies, and other activities, the club has become a very popular one around the campus. This club held joint meetings with the Y-Teens for the purpose of forming a youth center in Salem. It had the pleasure of sending one of its members as doorkeeper to the Model Assembly in Richmond, and two other members were sent as delegate and senator. With the help of fine leaders and Mr. Paul Coffman, our sponsor, we believe that the influence of the Hi-Y has been far-reaching this year. 4 73 4 - FO RTY-NIN E First Row, Left to Right: Bobby Stanley, Joe Rushbrooke, Wilson Kolmer, Sonny Loud, Lois Bayse, Lillie Plybon, Frances Wood, Bernard Hart, Walter Garst, Gale Ayers.

Debating Club At the beginning of the spring semester ten students, under the direction of Mrs. Smith, gathered in Room 106 to start this year’s debating class. The majority of the group’s debating experience was zero, but now we practically cross examine in general conversation. In preparation for the district meeting in May we debated with William Fleming, William Byrd, and Roanoke College. Our teams have de¬ bated commendably and often victoriously. The question this year is: “Re¬ solved—that the United Nations now be revised into a federal world govern¬ ment.” Whether or not our teams win, each of us will finish this year’sjdebating class with something more valuable than trophies—a deep interest in and a feeling of responsibility in international relations. 85 FORTY-NINE First Row, Left to Right: Elizabeth Kilby, Patricia Hubbard, James McNutt, Donald McGhee, Vir¬ ginia Garrett, Betty Cammer.

Our club has had three outside speakers, made field trips to the Salem telephone office, the Mick-or-Mack warehouse (where we were served lunch), and to Kroger’s new store in Salem to become more familiar with the problem of distribution.

Our theme has been “Safety,” and numerous talks and contests have been held centering around this subject.

During the first semester our meetings were inspired with Biblical character sketches given by the Reverend John Elliott. During the last semester the club alternated programs by having student participation and visiting ministers. The meetings have been helpful to all who attended. The S. C.

There were only six lettermen. The opening game, however, was a great success as the Wolverines shellacked Dublin 33-0. Wilson hit the line for three touchdowns, while Peters and McNutt added one each. Ervin kicked three out of five extra points. Andrew Lewis lost the next two games to two of the most powerful teams in Virginia, T. J. of Richmond, and William Byrd, by scores of 27-0 and 26-7. Lewis bounced back into the win column the next week with a 12-0 decision over Fleming. Lewis scored twice the first half and held on for the victory. Wilbourne, Ervin and McNutt starred for the Wolverines. Even though Salem lost to Jefferson, the game was the highlight of the season. Lewis scored twice the first half, and it was only with long passes and old “Lady Luck” that Jefferson pulled the game from the fire. Garst’s booming punts repeatedly set the Magicians back. Lack of reserves cost Lewis the game. The whole team was great, with McNutt, Peters, Moore, Ervin, Kittinger, Elmore and Garst particularly outstanding. Because of the injuries sustained in the Jefferson game, the state champions from Hampton easily beat Lewis 32-7. The Wolverines won their first Group I game over Lane High when Wilson took a short pass and went 60 yards behind beautiful blocking to score. The Wolverines lost a heartbreaker to Glass, 7-6. Ervin scored the only Salem touchdown, but missed the extra point. The following week the Wolverines ended the season by beating Danville 7-0. Wilson bucked the line to score in the final two minutes. Black, Wilson, McNutt, Peters and Perkins ended the season with good play. { 91 }b- THE PIONEER First Row Left to Right: . D.

As the season went along and our team gained experience, we made a much better showing against our old rivals from all over the state. Although the team didn’t win any Western Conference games, it did win two in the Eastern Conference. But the number of games won is not what really matters; what counts in the long run is the fact that the players played good, clean games, games which showed lots of hard fighting and a spirit of sportsman¬ ship that would be difficult to equal. Because of this, everyone is very proud of the boys on the team, and we mean it when we say—“Hats off! !” and “Fifteen for Team! !” With several experienced players returning, the team can look for¬ ward to a good season next year.

Girls’ Sports This year at A. L. the Girls’ Physical Education Department has really been busy. In gym classes the girls have been very enthusiastic over square dancing. Everyone was busy promenading and swinging her partner. In addition to square dancing, basketball, and softball, other games were played. The fourth period was looked forward to by all the eighth-grade girls who had their own basketball tournament. Playdays on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week were sponsored by the Sports Club. All girls who were interested were invited to come to the gym after school where they were instructed in shuffle- board, badminton, peteca, volleyball, deck tennis, basketball, ping-pong, and other games. As usual, a great number of girls considered basketball the most interesting of all sports. There were two Odd and two Even teams. From these four teams, an honorary Odd and Even varsity was chosen. These teams played two out of three games for the championship. As last year the Odds won and thus gained io points toward the color cup. Volleyball is rapidly becoming an important after-school game. Softball comes next, with all the girls yelling, “Let me bat.” Let us not forget the individual sports. Sheridan Carter won the badminton championship, with Lucille Lee as runner up. Next comes our instructor’s favorite sport, tennis. This game takes a great deal of skill and patience, but under the leadership of Miss Watts, our girls will “come smiling through.” The competition between the Odds and Evens was very strong this year, and although the winner of the color cup has not yet been determined, we know it will be a close race. 4 99 FORTY-NINE Girls’ Sports “ODDS” BASKETBALL TEAM Clockwise: Patsy Sisson {Manager), Jeanette Coleman, Mary Ann Logan, Joanne Showalter, Dot Robertson, Dorothy Underwood, Claudine Smith, Doris Gordon, Joyce Herring, Jean Cook, Betty Jo Taliaferro, Helen McGhee, Doris Roop, Imogene Helton. “EVENS” BASKETBALL TEAM First Row, Left to Right: Irma O ' Bierne, Nancy Carrol, Pat Templeton, Shirley Blackwell, Betty Greshman, Irene Swedberg.
