24 THE ORIOLE MARETTIA PAULINE GALLIMORE “For if she will, she will, you may depend on it, A nd ij she won ' t, she won ' t, so there ' s an end to it.” Here is one of our quiet girls who has made herself famous in history because of her ability to remember and recite it. " A friend in need is a friend indeed,” and if any one should see Rettia expatiat- ing history to her classmates just be- fore tests they would say there ‘‘is a friend indeed.” ROBERT MELVILLE FINKS “The most precious articles come in the smallest packages.” Athletic Council; Art Editor “Oriole”; Most original in “Who’s Who.” When Robert, the great orator of our class, prepares a debate and comes out on our stage with a dynamo of ener- gy and natural eloquence, you may feel assured you will be well entertained. Shrewdness, thrift, and common sense are the qualities most conspicuous in Robert. We feel assured that he will obtain his M. D. degree and anything else that he sets out to do. “ANGORA” “O vanity, thy name is ‘Angora’.” No one is so well aware of their blue- blooded and aristocratic ancestry as Angora. When told of her appoint- ment as Mascot of the Class of 1921 she raised her head a little higher, waved her big bushy tail and walked more majestically than ever.

THE ORIOLE 23 THELMA AUGUSTA PILLSBURY “ Much study is a weariness to the flesh.” Joke Editor “Oriole”; Athletic Council; Pro- gram Committee; Literary Society, First Term. Not that she doesn’t study, for we all know she does, but to look at her she wouldn’t strike you as being partic- ularly studious. She’s always ready for a good time, and say — she’s good looking! If you don’t believe us ask -! Oh, well, most anybody can tell you. In her beloved art may the pictures she paints be as charming as the ones we will hold in memory of her. ALTON INGRAM CROWELL “ Laugh and the world laughs i with you.” President Literary Society, First Term; Pro- gram Committee of Literary Society, Second Term; Best looking and most popular boy in “Who’s Who”; Assistant Editor-in-Chief of “Oriole”; Testator of Class of ’21. According to another old quotation, “Skinny” should be very fat, but he is the exception that proves the rule. Al- though he meets everything and every one with the same cheerful grin, life is not all a joke to him, for he is really studious and does commendable work. With his ready wit and bottles of pills we predict that he will be very success- ful as an M. D. ADA LEE CANNADAY “A soaring nature, ballasted with sense.” Assistant Ad. Editor “Oriole.” A typical senior is Ada Lee. Early in her high school career she acquired the habit of always passing on her sub- jects; this habit she has never dropped. For more proof of her determination to get her diplo ma just be out some zero morning and see her, cold but resolute, coming to school. For her we predict a bright future.

THE ORIOLE 25 (Elafis Siatory O XE September morning in the fall of 19 16 seventy-five boys and girls awoke to the realizat ion that at last the day had arrived when they were to start on their long journey up “High School Mountain.” They had been preparing lor this journey for years and it was with happy hearts that they at last set out as freshmen. Those who have been freshmen can understand how one feels, but those who have not can never understand the queer sensations through which they pass. The seniors were looked upon with awe and rever- ence, but the condescending look which passed over our count- enances as we saw a “down-in-the-grader” was really ludicrous. Many were the happy days as freshmen, in spite of the fact that we were constantly reminded that we were just “rats.” The sophomore year was begun with the same enthusiasm as the first, although there were not more than half as many students as the year before. Some enlisted to help “Uncle Sam” fight the “Huns, " while others either heard the “Call of the Wild,” or remained in the first year. The first half of the year was full of excitement because of the influenza epidemic in October and the signing of the armistice in November, but after that nothing unusual happened to disturb the even tenor of our way and we soon found ourselves juniors. The junior year was quiet, our one great aim being to reach the senior year which we had been looking forward to for so long. At last the year of all years has arrived: seniors at last! but we wonder where is all that dignity and superiority we used to think seniors always acquired. For some reason we just can- not be dignified, but in spite of that the Class of ’21 has ac- complished things of which any class might well be proud. We have the honor of founding the Pulaski High School annual, The Oriole, of which we are very proud. May the future seniors carry it on year by year with the same vigor and enthusiasm with which it has been started. Another accomplishment of which the seniors are proud is the raising of money for a school library which has been needed for years. The senior year has been a busy one, every moment has been filled, for there has been much to do. Now that w r e have reached the summit we find ourselves reluctant to go on to new fields and it is with sad hearts that we bid Pulaski High School farewell, and our thoughts will ever turn back to the good times spent there . — Dclrhey Fitzgerald, ' 21 .
