Thoughts Wheii I iiin given to deep and serious thought About tliis ever-elianging world of ours, Witli all its pomp and all its mighty powers, Its great resources and riches ever sought By some, I see the lessons it has taught; T realize the ,ioys of certain hours ' I’hat I have spent in various haunts and bowers; I recollect my hopes tliat came to naught, And if the world has bad among tlie good. As seems to be the case, why should I fret And bother over it ' ? The world long stood Befoi ' e I came and it won’t tumble yet. Let me ignore hei- faults, not see the pain.

Class. Do you know Hallie? If you don’t you’ve missed something, for she’s always there with a cheery smile. She is a bit quiet, but, speaking confidentially, we believe this is due to " Dan Cupid,” who seems to have enjoyed perfect success with his " love treat- ment.” If you want to hear the latest love song, ask Hallie. FREDA BECKMAM ' Freda” “Friendship is love loithout his wings.” History Club; 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; .Athletic .Association. Freda is a stalwart friend, ever willing to give you a few moments of her precious time. She says little but accomplishes much. Success to you, Freda! CATHRYN SYDXOR BENNETT " Kitty” “Haste thee, nymph, and bring with thee Jest, and yoiithjul jollity.” Page Literary Society; History Club; Sponsor, Senior Hi-Y; 4-L and 4-H Civics Clubs; .Assistant Business Manager, The Missile. " Kitty” has plenty of pep, fun, and vitality. She is attractive, poinilar and a good sport — what more could you wish for? .And what would our class play have been without her? ROBERT M.ASON BERKELEY " Bobboo” " Handsome is as handsome does.” President, Page Special; Public Speaking Society; Secretary and Treasurer, Page Literary Society; Vice- President, 4-H Civics Club; Vice-President, His- tory Club; President, 4-L Civics Club; Treasurer, .Athletic .Association; Editor, School Weekly News; Editor, The Missile; .Assistant Circulation Alanager,, Till’ Missile: President, Senior Hi-Y; Vice-President, Monogram Club; President, Student Council; Foot- ball Team (two years); President, 4-L Class. " Bobboo,” also known as " Red,” has been one of the outstanding hoys in P. H. S. for the last few years. His ability has been proven in athletics as well as in other activities. You can see by his rec- ord what a prominent part he has taken in school life. We foresee that some day " Bobboo will be a distinguished professor of Latin at some college. LESLIE EARL BOWERS " Les” “True worth needs no interpreter” Football Sciuad; 4-L Civics Club; Public Speaking Society. In " Les” we have one of our truest friends. He tends to his own business, but at the same time he takes an interest in everything else that goes on. Witty — yes, but without show — these who took Trig can testify! — 18 — HENRY BUCKIUS BROCKWELL " Buck” “A man nj fcui Tvords is a man of judgment Hi-Y Club: Physics Club; Green Troopers: Page Literary Society; Athletic Association: Baseball Squad ( 1926); Football Squad (three years): History Club; 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: Monogram Club. “Buck” is generally quiet: but when the time comes, he has his humor and a good laugh. Buck is a sturdy football player, a good friend, and a willing worker. ELIZABETH DOROTHEA BUDD “Betsy” “With lots oj pep, sincere in mind, The truest friend you’ll ever find.’’ Square Circle: Page Literary Society; Athletic As- sociation; History Club; Biology Club: Junior Page Literary Society. If there’s any fun going on you may count on “Betsy” being present; and she’s " there with the goods,” furnishing more than her share of fun. “Joke Editor,” “Poet Laureate,” and a " good sport” — that’s Betsy! LENA MARGARET BUTLER “Marte” “She is as good as she looks. In ways as well as books.” Spanish Club; Athletic Association; History Club; 4-FI Civics Club: 4-L Civics Club; Biology Club; Commercial Club. Good old “Marte” is always on hand with a smile and a witty remark. She is just the kind who is always ready for a good time. BERKELEY DANACOTT CARTER “Berk” “For, whole in heart and act and word was he.” President. 4-H Civics Club; President, Athletic Council; President, Hi-Y: President, Student Council; President, February Class; President, Junior Hi-Y: President, Monogram Club; Captain, Football Team ( 1927): Vice-President, Hi-Y; Vice-President, Student Council; Vice-President, History Club; Page Literary Society. “Berk” has certainly made a name for himself during his sojourn at P. H. S. vnile he was a fair student, his main “racket” was football. He starred for four years on the gridiron. Easy going and amiable, kind hearted and even tempered, “Berk” was respected and liked by everybody. LUCY PEARL CRAFTON “Mary Pearl” “Unthinking, idle, wild and young, I laugh’d and danc’d and talk’d and sung.’’ Athletic . ' Association: Commercial Club: Winner, L nderwood Certificate; Biology Club; Spanish Club; Girls’ Chorus. Lucy goes around in her idle, carefree way e njoying life to its greatest extent. She quickly becomes oiie’s friend. She isn’t serious, even in Miss Left- wich’s bookkeeping class, and does not allow the cares of the world to bother her. — 19 — 1 ,1 ROULETTE 1 1 BERNICE : IABLE DEAN “Bern Dean” “She’s lovely, fascinating, yet not a hit wild. And she always greets you W ' th the tenderest smile. " Athletic Association: Spanish Club; Biology Club; Reporter, The Missile; Commercial Club. No sweeter girl ever lived than Bernice, and to those who arc privileged to know her intimately, Bernice is truly a loyal friend. She greets you warmly; and when she leaves you, the sunshine of her smile remains. PHOEBE READE DREWRY “Fileebie Lee” “We don ' t know why we like you, Except because it ' s you. This may not be good logic. But goodness knows it’s true. " Square Circle: Page Literary Society: Daniel Lit- erary Society; Associate Editor. The Missile; Asso- ciate Editor, The Roulette; Public Speaking Society: Biology Club; History Club: Secretary and Treas- urer, 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club. Well, here’s Phoebe! She’s a good sport, always ready for anything. She may be quiet, but wait until you get her started. Some day Phoebe may be ranked among the great writers of the world — here’s hoping so, anyway! ' ERNON WARD FONTAINE “Vernie” ‘M pal who will help his pal along. " Senior Hi-Y; 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club; Chemistiy Club: Spanish Club: 4-L Physics Club: 4-H Physics Club; Green Troopers. Vernon is a jolly good fellow and a real sport. He is also talented in the art of boxing. We would not be surprised to see his name in the headlines some day as a champion with the gloves. BESSIE MEADE FRIEND “Bess” “Laugh and the world laughs with you. " Page Special: Junior Page: Page Literary Society: History Club: 4-L Civics Club: Secretary and Treasurer, 4-H Civics Club: Secretary, Febnrary Class: Associate Editor, The Missile; Biology Club; Athletic Asscciation: Square Circle. Laughter is the secret of Bessie Meade’s host of friends. She sees fun in everything, and you can’t help but see it yourself when Bessie Meade laughs! But she has her serious side too — Sait-elle son jran- cais? And how! Though we all love her as a friend, here’s hoping she will not remain a “Friend” always! LUCIE JORDAN GROSSMANN “Lucie” “Nature was here so lavish of her store. That she bestowed until she had no more. " President. Page Literary Society: Treasurer, Junior Page: Treasurer, Page Special (two years); Secretary, Student Council: Athletic Association: Vice-President, History Club: ' ice-President, 4-H Civics Club; 4-L Civics Club; Biology Club: Editor, The Missile; Associate Art Editor, The Roulette; Basketball Squad: Square Circle; iMember, Debating Team (two years.) Wanted — A sincere and true friend; one who has wit and pep, fun and frankness, but judgment and common sense as well. Found — In Lucie Grossman. Here’s to you, Lucie! — 20 — y MARGUERITE BUCHANAN HARWELL “Marguerite” “Come, pensive nun, devout and pure; Sober, steadfast and demure. " Secretary, Junior Page; Secretary, Page Special: Page Literary Society: Girls’ Basketball Squad (three year ): Captain, Basketball, 1929: Secretary, Athletic Council. 1928: Square Circle: History Club: Bio- logy Club; 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: Art Editor, The Roulette; Athletic Association. Here’s tc Marguerite, a fine athlete, a splendid student, and the be t of friends. Add to this her willingness to work, and what more could you ask? ESTELLE MARGOT HONEVMAN Honey” ' Laugh and grow fat. " Daniel Literary Society: Public Speaking Society: History Club; 4-L and 4-H Civics Clubs; Spanish Club; .- thletic Association. The “Spirit of P. H. S.” — that’s “Honey!” She is “the world’s best rooter.” Her good nature and fun have won for her a big place in life. Hurrah for ' ‘the biggest nuisance of the February Class!” ELIZABETH EDWARDS KIRKLAND “Beth” “To be, rather than to seem. " 4-L and 4-H Civics Clubs; Biology Club; History Club; Athletic Association. “Beth” goes about in a quiet and unassuming manner. You’d never guess it, but she can be very jolly, especially when she’s cooking. How about it. Beth? ANNIE LILLIAN KRELL “Blushie” “The head is not more native to the heart Than is your help to all. " Orchestra: Reporter. The Missile; .Athletic Asso- ciation: W ' inner, E ' nderwood Typewriting Certificate. My, how willingly you helped those in need of an explanation of any lesson you knew and always in the same calm and patient voice! Nature was lavish in her store of wisdom here, and we are sure of your success in later life. Congratulations to our “honor graduate!” EVELYN LOUISE LEIGH “Evelyn” “.-1 happy smile makes life worth while. " Public Speaking Society; Biology Club: .Athletic -Association: History Club: 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: Assistant Circulation Manager, The Roulette; -Assistant Business Manager, The Roidette. Yes, Evelyn is our class clown, and we could not have chosen a better one. Always laughing and p’aying “fool,” she fully deserves this title. And yet she has her share of good sense and ability. — 21 — WILLIE MAE MANGUM ‘ Willie iMae” " Knowledge is the material with which genius builds her fabrics. " Page Special; Biology Club: History Club; 4-L and 4-H Civics Clubs: Associate Editor, The Missile; Assistant Circulation Manager, The Roulette; Ath- letic Association. In Willie !Mae genius may truly find ample ma- terial with which to build her fabrics. She has plenty of sense, and great things are expected of her. Here’s to our rising journalist! BERNARD WOODWARD iMATTHEWS “Box er” “.1 friend in need is a friend indeed. " Athletic Association. ‘Booger” is a friend to everyone— -especially to the ladies. Lie’s a quiet sort of fellow, wending his way through life undisturbed and yet winning friends ever by his willingness to serve them. ISLA BLANCHE McCANTS “Blondie” “IIV will miss that hair that shines like the sun. And the smile you have for everyone. " Athletic Association; Reporter, The Missile; Span- ish Club; Girls’ Chorus; Commercial Club: Biology Club. Llere’s one who is always willing to talk to you about — well, no, we are not going to give the name. All of us have reason to talk about the beauty of Isla’s golden head. GR. HA: I EVANS iHEREDITH “Graham” " The valor of manhood wears a noble face. " Athletic .Association; Orchestra: Band; History Club: 4-L Civics Club; Treasurer, 4-H Civics Club: Statistician, February Class. Here ' s our cornet player, voted the best looking boy in the February Class. Look him over, girls! MASON JOYNER Ml ' NFORD “Dor lie” " Far may we search before we find a heart so gentle and so kind. " History Club: 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club; Ath ' etic Association. ‘ Dollie” is one of those happy-go-lucky per ons that one likes to meet. She is never in a bad humor or cross, .- lthough she rarely expresses her opinions, she has a mind of keen judgment. MRGINIA LEE PARRISH “Peggy” “To know her is to love her, And love but her forever. " Athletic Association; Spanish Club; Biology Club; Commercial Club; Girls’ Chorus; Orchestra; Reporter, The Missile. “Peggy” is always the same, ever loyal and friendly. And when it comes to playing a piano — I mean she shines! A brilliant career along this line seems open for her. ilay her life of melody and harmony be happy! DOROTHY VIRGINIA POWELL “Venus” “Whose happy heart has power To make a stone a flower. " History Club: Biology Club; 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Spanish Club: .Athletic Association. Lucky is the girl or boy who calls you f riend! Pep and personality, with oodles of humor thrown in, go to spell “Dot.” ANNIE VIRGINIA R.ADCLIFFE “Half-A-Pint” “Infinite riches in a little room.” Spanish Club; Music Club; History Club; Bio- logy Club: Athletic Association. Virginia is an accommodating, lovable senior. She possesses a warm heart. She has plenty of giggles — ask her for one! SHEILA RENA SHAPIRO “String Bean” “Every smeet has its sour. Every evil its good; Thou art to me a delicious torment.” History Club; 4-H Civics Club; .Athletic Associa- tion: Basketball Squad. Alischievous, fun-loving — that’s Rena! If you feel blue, just go to Rena, and she’s sure to chase away your blues. Her remedy is unfailing. SUSAN TRGINI.A SMITH “W hat ever she did was done well. " Biology Club; History Club: 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: Spani.sh Club. If you want a job done and done well call on ' irginia. She’s always willing, and that’s why it’s a pleasure to ask her to do anything. With this spirit she can’t help but be successful in life. — 23 — DOROTHY MAE STEWART " Dot” “W iat ' s the use oj % ' orrylng It never was ivorth while. " ITolosy Club; Athletic Association: Reporter, The .l 55 7f; Spanish Club; Winner, Underwood Type- writing Certificate. What would we do without Dorothy? Always smiling with never a care — not even over bookkeep- ing. She is the kind of girl we all admire. HERMAN ULYSSES TEMPLE “Hershf.y Bar” " Founded on a strong ambition, Sustained by his ability. " Biology Club; Athletic Association: Spanish Club. Ambition is the beginning, ability the next step. With these, Herman, we believe you arc going to reach the goal to which you a.-«pire. WILLIAM THOMAS TEMPLE " Bill” " Still water runs deep. " Spanish Chib; 4-L and 4-H Civics Clubs; Daniel Literary Society; Secretary, History Club. " Bill” looks quiet, but don’t be deceived. When- ever a prank has been played you will usually find him at the bottom of it. He is of an inquisitive nature, always trying to find out the why and wherefore. We all wish you the best of luck, " Bill,” and may you achieve your highest ambition. GERALD MERRIT YAIDEN " Jerrv” " A man oj keen judgment Is a man oj jew words. " 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club; Spanish Club; Athletic Association; History Club. Gcra ' d is very quiet, never disturbing anyone as he goes about his work in his calm manner, and yet we are sure that one of these days he will be successful. ELLA ELIZABETH WALTON " Ella” " By the work, one knows the workman. " Commercial Club; Girls Chorus. We all know Ella by her work, especially by her pretry. Quietness, thoughtfulness, and sincerity — these are the qualities which her work reveals, and these are the qualities which make her liked by all her classmates. VERNA GRACE WILL " Sis” ‘ ' Her mirth the U ' orld required; She bathed it in smiles of glee. " 4-K Civics Club; Spanish Club: Athletic Associa- tion: Girls’ ChcTus: Chemistry Club. Verna isn’t a " Pollyanna,” but she is one of these girls who nearly always have a smile and the " Imp of Mirth” hovering near the surface. We need more sincere smiles: so go to it, ‘ Sis,” and we can’t help but join you! FLORA ELIZABETH WILLCOX " Wee Willie” " Happy am , from care Vm free; Why can ' t they all be contented like me? " Page Literary Society: President, Junior Page: Page Special: History Club; Vice-President, 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: Square Circle: Vice-Presi- dent, Athletic Council ( 1928): Basketball Squad (three years): Sponsor, Junior Hi-Y ( 1928); Class Prophet: Athletic Association: Cheer Leader. Flora was voted the most popular girl in our Senior Class. What mere can we say about her? She is care-free, gay, and happy. Flora truly de- serves the honor of being " Miss Popularity.” Add to that her friendliness and her prominence in all P. H. S. activities — and there’s Flora! ELEANOR VAUGHAN WILLIAMS “Eleanore” " For manners are not idle, but are the fruit of a noble mind and loyal nature. " 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: Athletic As- sociation: History Club: Spanish Club: Biology Club. A heart of gold and that subtle charm which you possess are two assets of your personality which make you to be known and loved. EDWARD FRANKLIN WILLIAMSON “Eddie” " Friendly, fat, and full of folly. " Junior Hi-Y: Spanish Club: Athletic Association; Raven Society; History Club. As an all-around man, Eddie is hard to beat. Fie serves well in any capacity and is always ready to “lend a hand” — and even a dime! Here’s three rousing cheers for Eddie! RUTH GARDNER WOOD “Ruth” " Well timed silence hath more eloquence than speech. " .Athletic Association; Junior Page: Page Special: Treasurer, Page Literary Society: Winner. Declama- tion Contest: Spanish Club; Biology Club: Asso-- ciate Editor, The Missile; Treasurer, February Class; Class Historian: Member, Page Debating Team. Being short of stature does not hinder Ruth, for she stands high in her scholastic activities. Wliole- someness, sincerity and a sunny nature have made for her a place in P. H. S, EDWIN MORRISON YOUNG “Ath-e” “IVc shall not look upon his like again” Juri ' cr Hi-V: Senior Hi-Y; Page Literary Society; ’ice-Presi(jent, History Club: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Football Squad; Public Speaking So- ciety; Editor, School Weekly News; Associate Editor, The Missile; ] Ieml)er, Page Debating Team. “Cutie’s” middle name is versatility. He’s smart, quite good at an editor’s job, a good actor, and what’s more, an ’‘athlete.” Taking him all in all, he’s hard to beat! NETTIE ROSE ZITTA “Ned” “Blushing is the color of virtue.” History Club; 4-L and 4-H Civics Clubs. Nettie is shy and blushes frequently, but this does not keep her from being a good student. She is as quiet and studious as her teachers wish her to be. — 26 — JUNE CLASS MARGARET NAOMI ANDREWS “Peggy” “In hrr we find sobriety Yet mixed withal, with gaiety.’’ O. G. Club: Spanish Club; Biology Club: Page Special Society; Girls’ Chcrus; Athletic Association. A good smile and a word of cheer for everyone, that’s Margaret. She never fails to have her les- sons well prepared, but still, odd to say, she hates tests. That’s where she differs from the rest of us. May her life be as bright and happy as our high school days were. KATHRYN ROBERTS BEACKV ■ ' Sassy” “Always laughing, always jolly, .Always full of fun and folly.” -Athletic .Association. Step lively, everybody — here ' s “Sassy,” the snap- piest little dancer we know of. She’s a grand mixer with everyone and always ready to play pranks on her teachers and friends. Her motto is, " Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weeii alone.” GEORGE STROTHER BERNARD “George” “Kindness is wisdom. There is none in life But needs it and may learn.” Secretary, Public Speaking Society; History Club; 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Junior Hi- ' ; Daniel Literary Society; Football Squad; Athletic Association. “Let George do it,” says an old adage or proverb. Quite right. He will and gladly. This specimen of St. Bernard is one of the quiet, reserved, easy- going, studious fellows of which there are so many in the High School . What-ta whopper! George has no equal at hitch-hiking and thinking up novel ideas. For some reason or other he has suddenly become interested in statistics. Why? CHARLES KILGO BRADSHER “Charlie” Friendliness encourages friendship.” Public Speaking Society; Page Special; Biology Club: 4-L Civics Club; History Club. " Charlie” possesses a happy smile that will never wear off, has plenty of pep, and says things that would make anybody laugh. .Although he is rather timid in the presence of young ladies, he is a true sport and liked by all. ETHEL MAE BREEDEN “Jada” “.A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” Secretary, Daniel Literary Society; History Club: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club: Secretary, Spanish Club: .Athletic Association: Class Statijtician; Stu- dent Council: Reporter, The Alissile. Don’t let that innocent look in Ethel’s eye lead you astray! Gaze again upon the girl who loves hot dogs and Packards, who can out-talk Aliss Riddle and Mr. Burns (which is no small accomplishment I and who makes a golden every month. She is the solution to the question that has baffled us, why gentlemen prefer blondes. LEONARD LEE BREEDEN, Jr. ‘‘Brother” ‘For he lives twice who can at once employ The present well and even the past enjoy. Secretary and Treasurer, June Class; Assistant Business Manager, The Missile; Business Manager, The Missile; 4-L Cicivs Club; 4-H Civics Club; Athletic Association. Leonard is good-natured. Much to our surprise, we found that he could realize the responsibility of a task; so we gave him plenty of them. If Leonard hits his mark — and we know he will — there’ll be another lawyer somewhere in this universe. VIRGINIA NEWELL BULIFANT “Ginia” " Come let ns go while we arc in our prime. And take the harmless jolly of the time. " History Club; 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Biology Club; Athletic Association; Spanish Club; Girls’ Chorus; Chemistry Club. Do you know " Ginia?” Well, if you don’t, you have missed meeting a regular girl and a true friend. Don’t try to make her angry, ’cause you’re just wasting your time. It’s impossible to do it. We all crave to know why she liked to study about the Spanish Armada. There is always a reason. ISRAEL CANTOR ‘Tzzy” " Honest and sincere, a true friend to everyone. " 4-L Civics Club; Public Speaking Society; 4-H Civics Club; Editor-in-Chief, Cavanaugh Special; History Club; .Athletic .Association. “Izzy?” Yes, sir, you can get loads of fun out of him. He’s one of our most prominent class members. His favorite pastime is eating cheese tid-bits in Latin class. LEROY FRANKLIN CLEMENTS ‘Gozy” " With lots of pep, sincere in mind, The truest friend yoicll ever find. " Public Speaking Society; Biology Club; History Club: Orchestra: 4-L Civics Club; Spanish Club; Athletic Association; President, June Cla s. " Gozy” has a winning personality an acquaintance could never forget. He is a quiet, witty, deep- thinking student, who proves his worth every time. Surely the future holds rich rewards for this studious young chap. ETHEL MAE CORNETTE “Saxophone” " In every class you need a smile. So smile and make your life worth while. " Ethel’s hobbles are “gassing” and laughing. Her nickname fits her to a T (not to mention the rest of the alphabet). Bookkeeping? Man, she takes it as it comes — there’s no worrying her over it. - 28 - JACOB CROCKER “Jake” ' ' An honest maUy dose-buttoned to the chin. Broadcloth without, and a warm heart within.” Athletic Asscciation; 4-H Civics Club. And here is “Jake.” Everytime we see him he always has friends around him. My, what a di-spo- sition, almost too good to be true; but, nevertheless, it is true as we all well know. “Jake” has a heart warm enough to use for a frying pan. JAMES FREDERICK D’ALTON “Jimmy” “Heroes are made, not born. " Football Team; Junior Hi-Y; Senior Hi-V; Basket- ball Team; President, 4-L Civics Club; Vice-Pres- ident, 4-H Civics Club; President, Biology Club; Orchestra; Athletic Association; History Club; Pres- ident, 4-L Class; Class Will Writer; Daniel Literary Society; Monogram Club; Reporter, The Missile. “Jimmy” well deserves his reputation of being class clown. He’s always ready with some witty remark or foolish act. The Hi-Y Minstrels would be lost without him, and there is going to be a mighty big place in the school to fill now that he has derided to take wings and leave the old institu- tion. He does seem rather angelic lately, doesn’t he? SUSIE CATHERINE DOWNING “Suzee” “Her very jrowns are fairer jar Than smiles of other maidens are.” History Club: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Athletic Association. “Suzee’s” jolly nature is so contagious that she “peps” us all up. She is persistent, conscientious, and out to make a big success of her life. Ga to it, Susie, we’re backing you. ESTHER DRAKE “Majoy” “. ' Utuay true and kind and sweet Industrious too, and hard to beat.” O. G. Club; Athletic Association. Esther is one of our happy seniors who fills a large place in our hearts because of her kind feel- ing and willingness to help us all. Rather quiet, but that’s all right — she can tone us down when we need it. JOHN METCALF DREWRY “Jack” “I laughed and laughed, and still my wonder grew. That one small head could carry all he knew.” Vice-President, Student Council; Daniel Literary Society; Athletic Association; Page Special; Presi- dent, Biology Club: History Club: 4-L Civics Club: Football Squad; President, Junior Hi-Y; Editor, School Weekly News; Reporter, The Missile; President, Stu- dent Council; Editor-in-Chief, The Roulette; Public Speaking Society. What would our “Roulette” have done without Jack? He had the ability to manage it, and good- ness knows he exercised this ability. He made an .V-1 job of it, we think. Besides doing all this he has taken an active part in other school affairs. So here’s three cheers for our dandy good editor- in-chief. - 29 — GEORGE CASTLETOX EDMUNDS “George” “Full many a jlowcr is born to blush unseen And waste its sweetness on the desert air. " Public Speaking Society: Biology Club: History Club; 4-H Civics Club: Hi-Y Club. Oh! Oh! Look what’s here! George with all his zest, and his patience is really amazing, especially when that Bradsher bey gets around him in Civics class. We wonder where he gets it all. He has plenty of sense, and when he gets out on his own hook we’re watching to see the fellow who can put anything over on him. ANNIE BELLE GAY “Annie’ ' " Whom not even critics criticise. ' Biology Club; History Club; 4-H Civics Club. To strangers Annie may appear shy, but don’t let her put anything ever on you like that. Every- one in the class knows she’s “there.” With brains she is blessed, and she’s one of the “shining lights” in the class. RICHARD HENRY GODSEY “Dick” “The glory is not in never jailing, but in rising every time you jail. " Public Speaking Society: Biology Club; History Club: 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club; Athletic Association: Reporter, The Missile. What the — what is all that noise? Oh, that’s just “Dick,” the original disturbance! “Dick’s” love of fun will ever be in our memcry. GLADYS BERNELL HAWKINS “Shortums” “ may be as good as I please, Ij I please to be good. " .• thletic Association. Here’s a great girl, full of laughter and fun. The beauty of it all is she knows when to be serious. But what’s all this we hear about Lions? Oh, oh! Do they roar! JAMES EUGENE HEMPHILL “Washie” “.i more interesting person one never could be, F ' till oj jun, jull oj pep. he ' s a sport don ' t you see? Yet again he’s so serious, so thoughtjul and true That you just have to wonder what next he may do. " Junior Hi-Y: Yice-President, Biology Club: Daniel Literary Society: .Associate Editor, The Roulette; History Club; 4-H Civics Club: Orchestra; Band; Public Speaking Society: Science Club: Athletic -Association; Student Council: Page Special: Senior Hi-Y: Yice-President, June Class; Class Historian. One of “Washie’s” greatest faults is his love for writing. All the teachers seem to have realized this when anything had to be done. But, being good-natured and optimistic, he worked like a Trojan and made a success. You bet! Nothing amuses “Washie” more than to ply “Sergeant” with such questions as “Why can’t we all go to the moon in a rocket?” and “If we could, how would we get back?” He’s a wise old bird. — 30 — HILDA BURKE HUDGINS “Baby Doll’ ‘‘Beauty is its own excuse for being” President, O. G. Club: Secretary, O. G. Club; Athletic Association: Spanish Club; Page Special; Girls’ Chorus; Biology Club. We don’t know what we would do if we couldn’t talk w-th Hilda for she knows all the latest topics from the bottom up, and can even make an argu- ment worth while. Her favorite sport at P. H. S. is handing the absentee list to the teachers. INEZ ESTELLE JACKSON “Nez” ‘‘Both in deed and purpose true. To herself and others too; Working, studying, with a zest. Ever striving for the best” Biology Club: Athletic Association. “Nez” is another one of our members who is fond of talking, which only adds to her attractiveness. She seems to be a good mathematician or a good guesser, because we see where she has been winning prizes along those lines. Well, keep up the good work, “Nez,” but you might make the other party do some of the guessing. JEFFREY WILLIAM JAMES “Jeff” “But he whose inborn worth his acts commend Of gentle soul, to human race a friend” Reporter, The Missile; Athletic Association: 4-H Civics Club: History Club: Green Troopers: Chem- istry Club. “Jeff” sometimes seems quiet, but it is only his ability of knowing when to be silent. After spend- ing much of his time riding horses he now wants to ride airpl tjes or gas pipes. “Jeff” is liked by everyone who knows him, especially by someone at The Southern College, it seems. BEATRICE REBECCA KAPLAN “Bee” “An ideal pal in every way. The kind of friend you won ' t find everyday” Athletic Association; Biology Club; 4-H Civics Club: History Club. “Bee” is one of our old stand-bys. If we have anything particularly hard to do, we always call on her. She has more ambition than a whole regiment of German soldiers. Here’s to you, “Bee:” may you always have things as you like them. MARGARET GORDON KEELER " Shorty” “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” History Club; Athletic Association; Page Special: Daniel Literary Society: Square Circle: Reporter, The Missile. Margaret’s laugh is known the school over. She may be serious at times: still she has plenty of pep and is an all-around good sport. In fact, she is a little bit of everything nice all mixed together. Is she an artist? We’ll say she is. vK L — 31 — ' ' y ie ROULETTE o 1 u J 10 VIRGINIA STERLING LAMB “Slewfoot” ‘Go to the cud oj the rainbow, and there you will find a suitable versed Vice-Piesident, Public Si)eaking Society: Secretary and Treasurer, Public Speaking Society; Student Council; Page Literary Society; Vice-President, 4-L Civics Club; Athletic Association: Biology Club; Spanish Club: History Club. Virginia is a rare combination of beauty and sense. She is independent and truly generous. Indeed for- tunate are those who know her personally, for she possesses a personality equalled by few and excelled by none. JOHN ELBERT LONG “Elbert” ' ‘By the work one knows the workman. Spanish Club: Athletic Association: Typewriting Contestant, Richmond, 1928. Elbert is one of the most conscientious boys in the class. He would work his head off rather than fail, and consequently he always passes. He is especially interested in the business of life and will doubtless have a very successful business career. JOSEPH RICHARD MANSON “Joe” “Flow deep, while sluggards sleep. And you shall have corn to sell and to keep. History Club; Biology Club: Athletic Association; 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club. “Joe” has always struck us as being a quiet, but fun-loving boy. He has the highest ideals. His two outstanding hobbies are hunting and following the military life. He is already aspiring to gain one day the highest honors of the military world. Watch out for “Captain Joe,” who will shoot straight and true. NORMAN GRIMSLEY McCALEB “Mac” " Frowning and fierceness do not prove manliness Public Speaking Society; Daniel Literary Society; Athletic Association: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club: Junior Hi-Y; Senior Hi-Y; History Club, There is so much to say about “Mac” (good, of course) that we don’t knew where to begin. Well, there’s his smile, or should we say laugh? He laughs much oftener than he smiles. This alone is an attraction in itself. Then we’re all acquainted with his Essex; he’s forever going somewhere in it, and how he can drive! He drives it on two wheels most of the time, it seems. Some day he will find himself in Richmond with two of his wheels back here in Petersburg. Progress? Sure he’s going to make progress. There’s no doubt about it. ALBERT EUGENE McCANTS “Dick” " Once a friend; always a friend; When a friend, a true friend. " Band; Orchestra: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Associate Editor, Cavanaugh Special; Mono- gram Club; Manager, Baseball Team; Winner, Award for Excellence in Bookkeeping. “Dick” is one of those people who can do most anything. Every Wednesday and Friday morning we find him at orchestra practice, evidently trying to give “Mac” some inspiration. Then we go out to a baseball game, and there he is again. This time he is in a uniform and swinging away at the bat to beat the band. — 32 — MARGARET ELLEN MITCHELL “Peg” " ’Th better to laugh than to cry. " Athletic Association; 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club; History Club; Biology Club; Spanish Club; Public Speaking Society. Oh, how she can roll those eyes! It is wonderful to behold. Margaret is full of pep and happy-go - lucky, generous and kind to the last degree. MARTHA TRIXIE JIITCHELL “Trixie” " Happy am I, Jrom care I’m free, Why aren’t they all contented like me?” Biology Club: Spanish Club: History Club: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Basketball Squad (three years); Circulation Managtr, The Missile; Cir- culation Manager,, The Roulette; Public Speaking Society: .Athletic Association; Assistant Alanager, Girls’ Basketball Team. We can always count on Trixie, whether it’s get- ting subscriptions for The Missile or refereeing a basketball game. .And when it comes to actually playing basketball — well, words fail us. She didn’t get her name on the basketball trophy without de- serving the honor. ANN ELIZABETH NEAVES “Beth” " Her air, her manners, all who saw admired; Courteous, though coy, and gentle though retired.” Reporter, The Missile; Spanish Club; Girls’ Chorus; Daniel Literary Society; .Athletic .Association; Public Speaking Society. One look at Beth’s pretty face and one sees a girl who has made many a heart quiver. Who wouldn’t fall for a blonde like “Beth” with such a sweet and lovable disposition? ORSON BE.NJAMIN NEWTO.N, Jr. “0. B.” " Jolly, yet serious, jun-loving, yet sincere.” .Associate Editor, The Roulette; Reporter, The Missile; 4-H Civics Club: 4-L Civics Club; Spanish Club; History Club; Orchestra: Band; Associate Editor, The Missile; .Athletic .Association. “Fig” came to us from Lynchburg, and his sunny disposition has had its effect. He surely does have his ups and downs with his trombone. LEWIS WILLIAM P.ATTESO.N “Lewie” " Dear son of memory, great heir of fame.” Treasurer, Page Literary Society: Secretary and Treasurer, Junior Hi-Y; Senior Hi-Y; Vice-Presi- dent, History Club: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club: Treasurer, Athletic Association; Public Speak- ing Society. “Lewie” is a very popular chap and a great fol- lower of the sports in P. H. S. W’herever the team goes we always see “Lewie.” He evidently is un- usually fond of “Sarge” or the “chem” laboratory for he manages to get in “Sarge’s” classes every term. — 33 — r C - »il. - DOROTHY HOPE PERKINS “Dot” " She ' s lovely, jasc ' nuitin , yet not a bit wild, And she always greets you with the tenderest smile” President, Page Literary Society; History Club; 4-L Civics Club; 4-K Civics Club: Athletic Asso- ciation: Orchestra: ’ice-President, June Class: Editor- In-Chief, The J m 7r; Associate Editor, The Roulette; Secretary, Student Council. indeed, it was not an ill wind but certainly a favorable one that blew “Dot” to us from far-away IMichigan. “Dot” has applied herself with a will, and taken an active part in P. H. S. ' s activities. She has proved herself a real leader. IMAUDE EVA PERKINSOX “M.vudie” " Success depends not on what you are, but on what you accomplish. " Athletic Association: Biology Club: Spanish Club. W ' hen you want a pal, “IMaudic” is the one to choose. She has one of the sweetest dispositions in P. H. S. and always does her best in everything she undertakes. To her we give our best wishes for as great a success in the future as she has had in school. VIRGINIA HAZARD PERRY “Ginia” " The will oj a giantess, the form of a nymph.” Biology Club: Athletic Association: 4-H Civics Club: Associate Editor, The Missile; Class Prophet. ’irginia’s motto seems to be “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” for she gets in plenty of play and still comes out in the end with a “maxima cum laude.” She has loads of originality and as our class prephet made a big success, we think. BLANCHE ELIZABETH PRIDE “Blanche” " In her tongue is the law of kindness. ' ’ Biology Club; 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; History Club: Athletic Association. Here is a girl who has many fine characteristics, the most outstanding of which is reserve of manner. We are hoping that another of her characteristics, affability, will make for her a bright future. VIRGINIA SUE RAWLES “Ginger” " Be just before you are generous.” 0. G. Chib; Athletic Association; Basketball Squad; History Club. irginia is another one of our new friends. During the short time she has been with us she has taken an active pan in the girls’ athletics. As a jumping center she’s the “cat’s whiskers.” ROULETTE — 34 — DOROTHY BANKS RITCHIE “Dottie ' ‘The joy of youth and health her eyes display ' d, And case of heart her every look convey ' d.” Junior Page; Page Special; Vice-President, Bio- logy Club; History Club; 4-H Civics Club; Square Circle; Basketball Squad; Athletic Association. Here’s a toast to “Dottie,” our class clown and our best sport. She’s the driver of that well-known “Lizzie,” one of the kind that Henry hasn’t made a lady out of yet. She seems to say “thumbs down” as far as the boys are concerned so far. But who knows the future! CATPIERINE ELIZABETH RUDY “Kitty” " Kind words and few are a woman’s ornament Athletic Association; Biology Club; Spanish Club; Orchestra. Catherine’s smile is always ready to urge you on, like a pat on the back, helping you to do your best. She is dependable, and her acquaintance is well worth cultivating. We’re all mighty glad to have come up against such a girl during our high school days. EDITH MAE SCHERER “Pete” " Light of heart, light of step, Quick of wit, full of pep, A smile for all, a greeting glad, A lovable, jolly way she had” Biology Club; Athletic Association. “Pete” is a fine, sensible girl, who enjoys every- thing she undertakes. We love to hear her translate French: in fact, we are quite envious of her ability in that respect. AILEEN ARDENA SMALL “Smiley” " Nor know ivc anything so fair .45 is the smile upon thy face.” Class Song Writer; Associate Editor, The Missile; Associate Editor, The Roulette; Athletic Association; Spanish Club. Aileen has plenty of ability to write, and we are inclined to think that in her we had a poet among us of somewhat above the average that P. H. S. turns out. GEORGE PAYNE SMITH “Country” " Who speaketh kind words hath many friends.” 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club. Behold! Thoroughly original — absolutely none other like him. He comes from the old county of Dinwiddle and like all farmers can milk cows and sling “hot air” in an amazing way. He is a country lad who can take a stroll out, women out and time out, and still get by in his classes, so he deserves his sheepskin. — 35 — i-) J- ' LJ i Jl ® ■■ LOUISE GRAY SMITH •‘Louise” " She that was ever jair and never proud. Had tongue at will, and yet was never loud” History Club; 4-L Civics Clul); 4-H Civics Club: Athletic Association; Biology Club. Louise is one of our quiet, demure little girls, who, like several great peojjle of former times, never has much to say in crowds, but among her friends, she expresses herself a plenty. She never has a word to say against anyone. If she keeps up her good work, she’ll make a name for herself. MARTHA FRANCES SMITHSON " Dick” " Beauty of face and girlish grace, Is hers for joy or sorrow; She takes brightly every day. And never dreads the morrow. " Athletic Association; Biology Club: Spanish Club. Fiances may seem somewhat quiet and reserved, but we have noticed her several times among her friends " acting-up” just as much as any of the rest of them. It just goes to show that a jolly person can put something over on her classmates. Anyway, we all admire " Dick.” VIRGINIA CARRINGTON SMOOT " Ginger” " To see her is to love her, And to love but her forever. " 4-H Civics Club: Public Speaking Society: Biology Club: . thletic .Association; 4-L Civics Club; History Club. Anyone who has ever been in " Ginger’s” classes knows her voice. She’s the one that always pipes up before the rest with the answers. RUTFI BRADLEY STEPHENSON " Skeeter” " What is to be, will be; so why worry? " History Club: 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club; Biology Club: Secretary, Public Speaking Society: Associate Editor, The Roulette; Athletic .Association. To three tablespoons of personality, add one tea- spoon of sportsmanship and a dash of pep. Mix well. There you have the recipe for " Skeeter.” Don’t try to be blue around her ’cause it can’t be done! It won’t be her fault if she doesn’t make her mark in the world: she has plenty of deter- mination. AIARTHA EUDORA STEWART " Dodo” " Her eyes were deeper than the depth Of waters stilled at even. " History Club; 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club; Biology Club; .Athletic .Association. Did you ever see such big brown eyes as " Dodo’s?” We never did — and she doe n’t let them go to waste either. Sometimes " Dodo’s” ciuiet and demure but seldom for long and then only to be thinking of something to spring on her classmates. — 36 — WILLIAM MEADE STITH “Stithy” " One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, Xever doubted clouds would break. " Athletic Association: Football Squad ' two years): Bastball Squad: 4-H Civics Club: Junior Hi-Y: Public Speaking Society: Biology Club: Spanish Club: A ' - ' . istant Business Manager, The Missile; History Ciub. “Stithy” is a true gentleman if there ever was one. He’s chuck full of good sportsmanship and can even appreciate a joke on himself. He’s got all of the girls around here green with envy over that complexion of his. What do you do to it, “Stithy?” HARRY DOWNING TEMPLE “Herkie” " And he is oft the wisest man IVho is not ivise at all. " History Club: Spanish Club: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club: Assistant Circulation Manager, The Roidette; Orchestra: Athletic Association; Biology Ciub. Whenever you see an automobile coming down the street with the headlights about six feet apart, you may be sure it’s “Herkie.” Harry sure has that knack of being popular with the “fairer” sex, and he never lacks a date. He must have ‘ it” with a capital I, and plenty of it. MARGUERITE ELIZABETH TENCH 4 • M.argut” " Drink to me only with thine eyes, .And I will pledge with mine. " .Athletic Association. It is not to be doubted that “Margut” was en- dowed with that indescribable something people call personality. There ' s a twinkle in her eye, a smile on her lips, and a song in her heart always. CLARENCE ALTON TIPTON “Bush” " From the top of his head to the tips of his toes he is all humor. " Band: Orchestra: Monogram Club: Baseball Team (three years): Captain, Junior Basketball Team; Captain. Basketball Team; 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: W’inner, Typewriter Certificate. Have you ever read or heard or seen anything about that rare combination of wit and wisdom? Be- yond doubt you have. W’ell, “Bush” is among the chosen few who have it. He is one of the city’s champion basketball players. How he can toss the ball! DORIS VIRGINIA TIPTON “Invalid” " Small of stature, great of mind. " Biology Club: History Club: 4-L Civics Club; 4-H Civics Club: Reporter, The Missile; Orchestra; .Athletic Association: Public Speaking Society. Dot is the general tonic around P. H. S. You never know when she will pop up for she is always wandering hither and yon over the school. “Invalid” is a puzzle to us. Hew in the world does she do the big sister act and still get all the goldens? — 37 — DEXA LEE TOWXES “Fatty” ' ‘Fatty, the cutest little flirt, Always smiling, quite alert, Popular with girls and boys.

With a gladness untold he does more than his part.” History Club: 4-H Civics Club: Monogram Club: Football Team: Captain, Baseball Team (1928): . thUtic Association. “Mac” is the original hard hitter. If it hadn’t been for him the baseball team would have been sunk more than once. He’s one of the jolliest, most cheerful boys in P. H. S. Xolhing can disturb him. SIDXEV El ' GEXE WALTOX. Jr. “Siiooney” “Unassuming yet sincere and true.” Athletic .Association: Baseball Team. When one has come to know such boys as “Shooney” one’s faith in human nature is almost completely resurrected. We have sought far without having found one whose friendship has been more delightful than his. HELEX GERTRUDE WEBB " Helen” “To those who know thee not, no words can paint! And those who know thee know all words arc faint.” Biology Club: Athletic Association. Helen is an all-around girl. She is jolly and loves a good time, yet she doesn’t let it interfere with her studies. MARY LELTA WELLS “Mary Lelia” “.{ cool even look — oodles of hidden charm, and we have Mary Lelia. " Biology Club: 4-L Civics Club: 4-H Civics Club: .Athletic Association: History Club. Yes, another red head, but we haven’t discovered her temper yet. She has one? We’re from Missouri! With her musical abilities and her charm we know Mary Lelia will have a happy future. — 38 ROULETTE X ' IRGINIA FRANCES WHITT “Frances” “Smiles live long after fUnvers have jaded.

AS 5 1 S T 0 FL khAv.- " - History of the February Class 1 •r-r?) OUR years have passed since the February Class en- tered dear old P. H. S. During these years we have entered into various school activities, and thereby made history for ourselves. Let us take a brief but thorough review of our four years of life here. Athletics seem to hover first on the horizon, and as football is the outstanding sport in our school, we are proud to say that our class has given some of the best football athletes who have ever played for P. H. S. Berkeley Carter played four years on the gridiron and captained the squad in 1927. Robert Berkeley was another outstanding player in his two years of service. Henry Brockwell, Edwin Young and Leslie Bowers also helped Coach Day to put out a strong team on the gridiron. Henry Brockwell also represented our class on the base- ball team in 1926. Many of our class carried cheers and enthusiasm to the bleachers to boost the team. Although none of the boys in our class played on the basketball squad, we were well represented on the girls’ basketball team. Our outstanding basketball player was Marguerite Harwell. Marguerite was made captain of the team in her last three terms of service on the squad. Flora Willcox was another member who played three years, while Lucie Grossman and Rena Shapiro were also on the squad. On the Athletic Council Berkeley Carter has served as president, Robert Berkeley as treasurer. Flora Willcox as vice-president, and Marguerite Harwell as secretary. Berkeley Carter and Robert Berkeley each served a term as president of the Student Council, while Lucie Gross- man was secretary for one term. There were many of our class in the tv o literary socie- ties. In the Page Society there were Berkeley Carter, Rob- ert Berkeley, who served as secretary and treasurer, Henry Brockwell, Edwin Young, Bessie Meade Friend, Phoebe Drewry, Kitty Bennett, Betsy Budd, Ruth Wood, who served as treasurer in ’28, Lucie Grossman, president in ’28, Flora Willcox, and Marguerite Harwell. Members of the class on the debating teams of the Page Society v ere Lucie Grossman, who debated two years, and who was elec- ted the best school debater in ’28, Ruth Wood, and Edwin - 44 - FEBRUARY CLASS HISTORY— Continued Young. The Daniel Society claimed Estelle Honeyman, Phoebe Drewry, and William Temple. Members of the class belonging to the Square Circle were Marguerite Harwell, Lucie Grossman, Flora Willcox, Betsy Budd, Bessie Meade Friend, and Phoebe Drewry. Robert Berkeley and Berkeley Carter both served as presidents of the Senior Hi-Y. Carter was also president of the Junior Hi-Y and vice-president of the Senior Hi-Y. Other members of the Hi-Y clubs were Edwin Young, Henry Brockwell, and Eddie Williamson. Two members of our class served as editors of “The School Weekly News.” These were Edwin Young and Rob- ert Berkeley. There were a number of us on The Missile staff. We had again two editors from our class, Lucie Grossman and Robert Berkeley. Edwin Young, Ruth Wood, Bessie Meade Friend, Willie Mae Mangum, Phoebe Drewry, and Betsy Budd acted as associate editors for this school publication. In the History and Civics clubs the following served as officers: Edwin Young, Lucie Grossman and Berkeley Carter, vice-presidents of 3-H History Club; Lucie Gross- man, vice-president of 4-H Civics Club; Betsy Budd, treas- urer of 4-H Civics Club; Bessie Meade Friend, secretary of 4-H Civics Club; Phoebe Drewry, secretary and treasurer of 4-L Civics Club; Flora Willcox, vice-president of 4-L Civics Club. There were three winners of Underwood Typewriting Certificates in our class. These were Dorothy Stewart, Annie Krell and Lucy Grafton. A part of the staff of “The Roulette” was drawn from our class. The associate editors are Phoebe Drewry and Lucie Grossman; the assistant circulation managers are Willie Mae Mangum and Evelyn Leigh ; Evelyn Leigh was chosen one of the assistants to the business manager; and Marguerite Harwell is the art editor. Finally, we come to our class officers. The president of our class is Berkeley Carter; vice-president, Bessie Meade Friend; secretary and treasurer, Ruth Wood. Thus ends the history of the February Class of 1929. In closing, we affirm that as those who have gone before were examples for us, may we be examples for those who shall follow. 45 — History of the June Class OOKING back for four short interesting years my mind visualizes a faint, though somewhat distinct, picture of a group of timid and rather insignifi- cant boys and girls as they first enter the Pe- tersburg High School in the fall of the year 1925. How stupid they seem as they look blankly down the halls and into the classrooms! They are just another bunch of “freshies” with a world of surprises and opportunities awaiting them. Slowly and cautiously my mind turns over a year, and I unmistakably see another picture, quite different from the first. The “freshies” have improved and show a rather startling amount of intelligence. They are peacefully ad- justing themselves and are, at least, attempting to look bright when a teacher calls on them. The Sophomore and Junior years of these former midgets are full of interest and advancement. Gradually they begin to take an interest in the various activities of the school. Members of the class begin to blossom forth with some of their hidden and heretofore unknown talents. Suddenly there is a blank, and then another picture! The once timid “freshies” are now full-fledged, dignified Seniors. Covered in the heroic mists of the glorious football grid- iron of the past several years I see our class well represent- ed by James D’Alton, Meade Stith, Jack Drewry, Gordon Williamson and Malcolm Underwood. As the football mists are cleared, I notice in the noise and excitement of the basketball seasons James D’Alton, Gordon Williamson and Alton Tipton on the boys’ basket- ball team; while Cornelia Friend, Trixie Mitchell, Virginia Rawles, and Dorothy Ritchie starred for us on the girls’ basketball team. In baseball uniforms I recall such splendid players from our class as Mac Underwood, Alton Tipton and Meade Stith. Thus we see that in all branches of athletics our class has given an account of itself. Although our class distinguished itself in athletics, we have gone forward in the various other departments and activities of the school to win an outstanding reputation. JUNE CLASS HISTORY— Continued The Senior and Junior Hi-Y clubs claimed several of our class. The 4-L and 4-H Civics Clubs had a number of our mem- bers on their lists. The Daniel and Page Literary Societies seemed to have thrived with many of our seniors as members. The Square Circle and the 0. G. Clubs have had a num- ber of our girls on their rolls. We have been well represented in the orchestra and band by several accomplished musicians. A very interesting and familiar scene flashes across my brain and I see clearly several students working around a table piled high with papers and notes ; an old stand-by, Mr. Powers, is directing the work. They are working hard on the publication of “The Roulette.” Editor-in-Chief Jack Drewry, James Hemphill, 0. B. Newton, Dorothy Perkins, Aileen Small, Ruth Stephenson, Margaret Keeler and Marie Wilkinson, assistant editors, are hard at work with the other trustworthy members of the staff. Dena Lee Townes, business manager, Trixie Mitchell, circulation manager, Theo. Thomas, chairman of photograph committee, with Evelyn Leigh, Harry Temple and Gordon Williamson as as- sistants, are also seen busily engaged in their efforts to make the annual a success. Along with this picture I see “The Missile” staff equally hard at work under the careful supervision of Mr. Miller. The so-called dignified, studious seniors meet several times to discuss numerous important matters such as the class ring, class pictures, and class play. How business- like they now are ! How well they conduct themselves in the settlement of such important affairs ! So many scenes pass across my mind’s eye as I recall these seniors diligently at work on their class play, “The Professor’s Daughter.” The talented actors and act resses were surely another example of the true worth of our class. And then I can’t help but let my imagination roam for a while on thoughts of the future of our class. Surely the senior class of June, 1929, will endeavor to uphold the fine ideals they have learned while in High School and, leaving behind a record for other poor “freshies” to “shoot at,” will undoubtedly grow and develop into men and women our school and nation will be proud of. — James Hemphill.

Prophecy of the February Class OODNESS, but this life is boring ! This was my thought as I dressed for the usual dinner party and round of night clubs in New York City. Just the same people to be seen every night; the great American metropolis certainly is an awful place for meet- ing old friends by chance. Wouldn’t it be great, I asked myself, if I could see some of my old school friends of ten years ago? In this gloomy frame of mind I set out to make “whoopee.” Walking into the dining room of the Ritz I saw a dapper- looking individual hurry toward us. I looked at him in- differently, expecting to see the familiar head-waiter, who was always there, but, much to my amazement, it was “Buck” Brockwell, with whom I graduated from P. H. S. ten years before. With a smile of recognition “Buck” led our party of friends to a table and managed to whisper to me that Vernon Fontaine was also there, and that he was out in the kitchen washing dishes. With renewed life I looked around the dining room. Why, who was that? Willie Mae Mangum and Edward Wil- liamson were enjoying a dinner that appeared very ap- petizing. After dinner, as we walked through the lobby, I bumped into Nettie Zitta, resplendent in diamonds and gorgeous evening wraps. Talking with her a few minutes, I learned that she was going to a concert to be given by Virginia Parrish, who now was regarded as second only to Leginska. Thinking now what a wonderful place New York was for meeting old friends, having changed my opinion in this particular, I didn’t realize that we had reached Texas Guinan’s night club. Going in, the doorman gave me a terrific punch. I turned around to give him a piece of my mind and looked into the grinning face of Graham Mere- dith, better looking than ever in his glittering uniform. We had only been in Guinan’s notorious club a few minutes when with a rattle and bang a big, burley police- — 54 — FEBRUARY CLASS PROPHECY— Continued man came in leading a squad of fellow policemen. Another raid ! Fleeing through the back door, I looked back and recognized the leading officer as Robert Berkeley. What a shock ! Not looking where I was going, I ran into Freda Beckman, now a dishwasher, and nearly stepped on Kitty Bennett, the cook. No wonder the food hadn’t been as good as usual. As w ' e had been driven out of Texas’s club we hurried to “The Green Owl.” Why, the girl who was checking the coats was Isla McCants, as blonde and smiling as ever! Bewildered as I was by seeing so many old acquaint- ances, I could not believe my eyes when I saw a merry trio, consisting of Marguerite Harwell, Bessie Meade Friend and Lucie Grossmann come dancing out, singing a snappy song. This song had been written by Betsy Budd. The lights were lowered, and it was announced that Estelle Honeyman would do an Egyptian dance. It couldn’t be the same, but — yes, there was “Honeywagon,” thin and willowy, gomg through the many movements of the dance. Overhearing the conversation at the next table, I heard mentioned the name of Phoebe Drewry, the young girl who had just risen to fame in grand opera. So Phoebe had accomplished her long-desired wish to become an opera singer. Suddenly, everyone turned around and looked at the entrance. Turning also, I saw ' Berkeley Carter, the heavy- weight champion of the wmrid, stalk in with his trainer. But “Berk” was too high and mighty now to speak to me. He walked over and sat at the table with — yes, it was Ful- ton Youngblood, who, one of my companions told me, was putting on a new show, which everyone said would be better than the Ziegfield Follies. Imagine it! Hearing a commotion beside me, I saw Leslie Bowers, a waiter, who was so busy looking at Ruby Newton, ac- companied by Herman Temple, her proud and adoring es- cort, that he dropped his waiter, breaking and spilling everything. Poor Leslie ! A party in a far corner of the room were certainly rais- ing “whoopee,” hilariously laughing and shouting. There — 55 — | |roulette1| I FEBRUARY CLASS PROPHECY— Continued were Mason Munford, Ella Walton and Hallie Badgett, with four prosperous looking husbands. I wondered if I were dreaming; but, after pinching myself a few times, I real- ized I was not. My companions, tired of “The Green Owl,” decided to go to “The Pink Mule.” With many a backward glance at my friends who had not recognized me, I hurried out with my party. “The Pink Mule” was a new night club, which had just been opened. The owner was standing at the door to greet us. It was Bernard Matthews. He recognized me at once, and after talking over old times a bit he told me he had a surprise for me. Bernard led me back to the dressing rooms of the chorus girls, and there were Rena Shapiro, Virginia Smith and Margaret Butler. They all were glad to see me, but we couldn’t talk about the happy times we had had in high school together as it was time for them to go on the floor for the next dance. I rushed out to watch them, and they certainly could dance. After this was over, they all came out to talk with me. They told me that Annie Krell, brilliant as ever, was run- ning for governor of Ohio, that Evelyn Leigh was in the movies and would soon be a second Greta Garbo, and that William Temple was making a tour of the country giving talks on evolution. Much to my sorrow they informed me that Bernice Dean was a scrub woman in the Woolworth Building. Eleanor Williams, they said, was head of an orphan asylum in Peoria, Illinois, and Dorothy Stewart was teaching French at Columbia University. They also told me that it was rumored that Dorothy Powell was going to marry a distinguished aviator. As they were leaving for their next dance, Virginia Smith showed me a business- like young woman across the room. It was Lucy Grafton, a newspaper reporter, getting all the latest dope. With many good-byes, I left my old schoolmates in “The Pink Mule.” Thinking over the good times I had had in the past with all these friends I had met tonight, I did not realize how recklessly our taxi was being driven. Suddenly, with a sickening lurch, we crashed into a telephone pole. I was - 56 - ROULETTE FEBRUARY CLASS PROPHECY— -Continued sinking into unconsciousness when I heard Edwin Young, the taxi driver, arguing with Gerald Vaiden, a street sweeper, about which one was to blame for the accident. I’m afraid “Cutie” had been “whooping it up” just a little too much. The next thing I remember I was going up and up on an elevator in Bellevue Hospital. Again as I was relapsing into unconsciousness I realized that I was on a fresh, white, hospital bed with a trim young person in the regulation nurse’s uniform standing by my side. It was Ruth Wood, calm and quiet as she used to be. She assured me that I would be perfectly all right. What an ending to my eventful night! — Flora Willcox. —57 Prophecy of the June Class ELL, here I was exploring one of those dark, damp tunnels, all because Mr. Miller had said that we in Petersburg didn’t know anything about our own city’s historic places. The atmosphere was slight- ly oppressive, and I wondered how the Civil War soldiers could have stood it. Moving on through the tunnel, I came to a rather large hole, into which I stuck my head inquisitively and, to my surprise, found it blocked by a little gnome. “Come in,” he piped in a wee, small voice. “Lord Juss is holding court.” In a maze I followed the queer little creature. “Who is Lord Juss?” I inquired. “Oh, he’s King of Gnomeland but also a great prophet,” he explained. A prophet ! I grasped at this word as the proverbial drowning man grabs for a straw. Here was a way out of my dilemma. And so I was led into the presence of the great Lord Juss and allowed to gaze into his magic crystal, which fore- told all things. The first person I saw within the crystal was Leroy Clements, who dolefully informed me that the name of Pe- tersburg High School had been changed to Anderson High. Then, along came Claiborne Hawkins, Jacob Crocker and Alfred Young, arguing themselves blue in the face as to which was the best appellation for our dear high school. On a street corner I glimps ed Leonard Breeden, quite the center of attraction, lecturing on “The Hub of the Wheel” and using Elbert Long as one of the spokes, evi- dently. Doris Tipton, whose bank account was swept away in the Union Trust and Mortgage Company failure, has at last succeeded in saving enough “chink” to buy that new Ford, it was seen, and was breezing Helen Webb, Ethel Cornette and Elizabeth Kirkland up and down Sycamore Street. — 58 — r Snf •i ' 111 ROULETTE r E 3 EI 1 . . j JUNE CLASS PROPHECY— Continued Elizabeth Neaves and Ethel Breeden are models for the great sculptor, “Izzy” Cantor. Izzy’s side partner is, of course, none other than the great and renowned Albert Wice. Frances Whitt is playing the part of Lanky in George Smith’s Freak Circus. Dot Ritchie is the clown. He also has Margaret Keeler as the world’s most famous giggler and “Pinky” Friend as the lady whose hair is on fire but never burns. Peculiar, isn’t it? Fulton Youngblood is now French teacher at Anderson High and smiles covertly at Gladys Hawkins, who has sup- planted Miss Browning. Virginia Rawles has received an international prize for translating French the fastest. “Jimmie” D’Alton, having become so used to the uni- form, is now a sailor scrubbing the decks of a U. S. cruiser. “Mac” Underwood is an admiral in the Navy. Alton Tipton is a big league ball player, and Gordon Williamson is manager of his team. Now, we know which team to bet on — and how! Harry Temple is a Packard salesman. Dick Godsey and Lewis Patteson are prospects. And who do you suppose buys one? Why, “Louie” does, of course. “Fatty” Townes, Marie Wilkinson, Louise Smith and Margaret Mitchell are seen in the crystal as bathing beauties in a contest at Miami Beach. And there is dear old Norman McCaleb at his old job, dealing out towels and keys for the bath houses. He would! Depend on “Mac.” “Trixie” Mitchell is assistant to the advertising man- ager of the Progress-Index. She seems as busy as in former times at P. H. S. Edith Scherer is a permanent wave specialist, and has as her victim Inez Jackson. Poor thing, didn’t you know better! James Hemphill is vice-president of the United States and has appointed 0. B. Newton postmaster general. Charles Bradsher is advising him on the matter of a sweet mucilage for postage stamps. — 59 — JUNE CLASS PROPHECY— Continued Meade Stith, having attended V. M. I., is now Secretary of War. Meade ' s for world peace, we know. He never quar- reled about anything in his life. Albert McCants is manager for the Boston Braves and is quite a hustler. Dorothy Perkins, the answer to a “Teacher’s Prayer,” has at last achieved her highest ambition and is Civics teacher at high school. Louise Sadler is a famous jockey. She won the last Kentucky Derby, according to a medal she wears. “Dick” Robertson is a minister. Last Tuesday he made a talk in assembly. Sufficient to say, he didn’t need a stop watch. “Dick,” you’re a good product of P. H. S. I pinched myself to be sure if I was quite all there, because there were Annie Gay and “Bee” Kaplan just chat- ting away and using the most atrocious English. Can you imagine that? Mary Lelia Wells has at last succeeded in driving a car and, at the same time, can speak to her acquaintances. Congratulations, old dear, but please don’t try to be an aviatrix! We’re afraid you’ll “snoot” us all the time. Are you sure that’s ‘‘Sassy” Beachy teaching in a school for the deaf and dumb? “Sassy,” they can’t even hear you. What do you do? Keep a parrot for company? Maud Perkinson, Blanche Pride, Virginia Lamb and Catherine Rudy are shown by the crystal as the famous “Flying Four.” They make their balloon ascension to- morrow, competing for the endurance prize. Virginia Smoot is engaged. We wonder if he’s a saint. “Joe” Manson is now a member of a secret Corsican organization, having received the idea from Mr. Freas’s ti- rade on “Colomba.” Blood and thunder! We hope he won’t get revenge for any of the wrongs done him while at P. H. S. George Edmunds is sponsoring a Hi-Y club for girls. Oh, man! On with the idea! — 60 — JUNE CLASS PROPHECY— Continued Nelson Sturdivant and Sidney Walton are now prohib- ition officers. Sons of P. H. S., we hope you may succeed in finding- what you look for. Behold! There is “Jack” Drewry, justice of the peace, indicting George Bernard for writing the worst hand in this whole universe. “Dot” Young was seen just eating up a Latin book. Horace is now her love. Aileen Small writes poetry by the volume for a group of lovely idlers who attracted my attention. These were Margaret Andrews, Virginia Bulifant, Susie Downing, Es- ther Drake, Frances Smithson and Marguerite Tench. Suddenly, I felt someone punch my arm, and it was no love-tap either. “Say, sister, you’ve been in here all day. We’re closing up.” It was the guide of the tunnels. “Aw, become parched and explode,” I mumbled quietly under my breath and followed him out. Mr. Miller, you have always been of the greatest as- sistance to every Senior Class; but, oh, how you helped it out this time!

On this day the Wave over- came their rivals from the Wonder City by a score of 25-6. The next game was played on October 5 when a fighting team from Blackstone High School was met. The game was very tight in every instance. The Wave, however, emerged the victor by a 6-0 score. On October 12 Petersburg met, for the first time, the Salem High School gridders. This game was also played on the home grounds. By catching the Crimsons off their guard the mountaineers took the long end of a 19-0 count. The first trip of the season was taken to Portsmouth on October 19. Woodrow Wilson proved to be a real match for the Crimson Wave. The playing of Smith for Peters- burg and Casey for Portsmouth was outstanding. The game ended in a 7-7 deadlock. The ancient rivals from Richmond, John Marshall, prov- ed to be the next foe of the Crimson Wave. It was a con- test between a good big team and a good little team. John Marshall’s big team returned home with the scalp. An excellent game, though a mud battle, with Maury, furnished the excitement for a dampened crowd on No- vember 2 at the local park. Despite the mud the Wave had many good chances to score. The game, however, ended in a scoreless tie. Petersburg met another conference rival for the first time on November 9, when they journeyed to Roanoke to engage the pigskin chasers of Jefferson High. Although leading the mountaineers in the first half, Petersburg was unable to continue the lead against Roanoke’s much heavier team and lost the game. The Shipbuilders of Newport News were the next op- ponents of P. H. S. This game was played in Newport News on November 16. During the game the Crimson Wave made many good advances toward the goal but lacked the - 82 - extra strength to put the ball across the last line. Newport News won by the score of 13-0. The last game of the season was played in Ashland on November 23. The Randolph-Macon Freshmen proved to be the victims of the Crimson Wave. Although trying hard, the Freshmen were unable to withstand the charges of the Crimson. Here the season was ended with a 12-0 victory. The 1928 football team of P. H. S. goes down in the history of the school as one of the hardest fighting aggre- gations ever to be turned out. The spirit of these grid warriors created much enthusiasm among the local fol- lowers of the game.

The first four games were good wins. One of the victims was Woodrow Wil- son High, of Portsmouth. This game was one of the most interesting of the season. Five minutes of extra play was necessary to decide the winner. In the contest with the Shipbuilders of Newport News the opponents proved too much for the Petersburg boys. Although winning two from Hopewell, the Wave got the short end of the score in battles with Maury, William and Mary Freshmen and Newport News. The Crimson Wave came from behind in the con- test with the soldier boys from Blackstone Military Aca- demy and won by a 16-12 score. The cadets from John Marshall were a little too strong for the Crimson Wave this year. St. Christopher’s proved to be a good match for the Wave. The Saints conquered the Crimson by the close score of 19-17. The season was ended triumphantly with a 15-14 win over Woodrow Wilson. Petersburg was weakened in the last few games of the season by the absence of several varsity men from the line-up. The former Yannigans proved to be good substi- tutes. They ended the season well. — 86 — The Tennis Club Setting a precedent in the history of the High School, a tennis club was organized this year. In March a meet- ing of those boys interested in tennis was called; it was decided to proceed with plans for a tennis club and a tennis team. Rules and regulations were adopted, and Bolling Cameron was elected manager of the club. Mr. Powers is the responsible factor in the organization of the present club. It was through his efforts that the Petersburg Country Club gave permission to use their courts for practice. At the time of this writing there have been no matches by the tennis team of P. H. S., but the squad is rapidly getting into form and expects to have contests with other schools as well as intra-mural matches.

S. in the baseball league of the Virginia Lit- erary and Athletic Conference. P. H. S. won five out of six conference games. Maury High school, of Norfolk, was the only conference team to defeat the Crimson Wave. Throughout the season the team was handicapped by the shortage of pitchers. Johnny Ayers was the star and mainstay of the team and the only pitcher who was a letter- man. He was therefore saved for all conference tilts. The infield of the 1928 baseball team was especially strong. The captain and veteran, “Mac” Underwood, was its main support. Ben Campbell, the captain-elect and center fielder, led his teammates in batting. The climax of the season was reached when the Crimson Wave tied Maury High School for the championship of the eastern division of the conference. The winner was de- cided by a play-off in Norfolk. The Wave, however, lost this game. Upper: Student Coiineil.

A word of encouragement, a wink of his eye, Wake me wish some d;iy that I may be To someone the same dear friend he’s been to me. Would to God that I could, before this day goes by! We all have friends in our lives, but the friend most deal " . Is the one who smiles and in some mysterious way .lust banishes Inii-dens and laughs away the tear, When we feel sad and downhearted some dreary day. Such a friend my old school chum has been — old lioy. You lift the sorrows, reidacing them with ,ioy. — .James Hemphill. In addition to the general dedication of “The Roulette” to “Sergeant” Holmes we dedicate the Humor Section to him on account of his earnest desire to provide material for this part of the book. In order to remember him better, we insert a few of his outstanding expressions. They go: 1. “Did you know that?” 2. “x w, it’s a lot of hokum.” This is spoken with very expressive gestures. 3. “Take up your bed and walk. On your way.” 4. “Some of you ignoramuses would believe anything.” 5. “You can take your diploma and go to a hot dog stand and buy a cup of coffee for ten cents any time. Try it without the dime.” In the following pages there are many jokes. Some of them are funny and some otherwise (mostly otherwise) ; but have you every tried to be a joke editor? It’s a great life. Maybe you have heard some of our jokes before. But then, it need not make you down on the joke department, need it? If the joke is on you, it is quite possible that you will live it off in time. We had a lot of material for this, lots of good jokes, but, sad to relate, we chucked most of the good ones aside, and you are reading the rest, unless you throw down the book now. — 112 — And then there was a dog named Jason beeause he was always hunting fleece.

Look out! Here comes our professor in his Cadillac; you would be surprised at tlie way he masters it, even better than he does Latin. Gee, how easily he slips by the traffic cops, and even the traffic signals! There is one good thing about tliis ramljling Cadillac, and that is that the driver can go as fast or as sloiv as he likes, and no one tries to stop his two-wheel vehicle. The greatest dis- advantage is that only one person can ride at a time. So, when Mr. W. goes riding Mrs. W. has to stay at home. — Margaret Woodroof. — 0 — Gladys Dillon: “What would you do without me?” Marie Wilkinson : “Enjoy life.” — 113 — ' ' 7A ROULETTE A Boj’ (at a tahle) : “Tliero is a fly in my soup.” The Waiter : “That’s all right; it’s .iust a small one; he won’t drink much.” He: “I like thin .(am hettei ' than thick .(am.” She: “And why?” He: “The seeds are tartlier ai)art in the thin .jam.” Teacher: “Why don’t you answer me?” Boy: “I shook )ny head, sir.” Teacher: “Do you expect me to hoar it rattle way up here?” — 0 — Seen on the college bulletin board: “Lost, a fountain pen, l)y a rat, full of red ink.” — o — P ' ’irst Student: ‘A ' our I ' azor will not cut at all.” Second Student: “I guess then that your beard must be tougher than my pencil.” ASYI OYIN ei.AC9( AMD WHITE - 114 — The sweat stands nut upon his face, His hands move at a rapid jiat-e.
