Last Will and Testament We, the 1922-23 Senior Class of Pulaski High School, feeling that we are facing the end of P. H. S. life, do solemnly declare this to be our last will and testament, disposing as wisely and dis- creetly as we are able all our real and personal property. First: We, the Senior Class of ’23, hereby will to the Junior Class our “Good Will,” together with our neversharp pencil sharpener, so that they may always be supplied with pointless pencils in case of emergency — such as a surprise written lesson. We also will to the Junior Class the responsibility of keeping alive The Oriole, the little bird that came to make its home in P. H. S. in 1921 and finding conditions favorable for its growth remained, becoming an essential and creditable asset to Pulaski High School. We hope that it may continue to grow with the coming years, in the hands of our successors. Second: To the remainder of the high school we will free tickets to the Senior Class, with our compliments. Third: Elizabeth Matheney wills her fame as an actress to Isabelle Miller. Beveridge Roberts wills her editorship of The Oriole to Thelma Richardson. She also wills her curls to James Cummings. Gerard Southern wills his good looks to Foy McGuire. He also wills to William Allison the right to ring the period bells. Minnie Peirce wills her winning ways to Alyne Hurd. Ernest Lewey wills his popularity to Marvin Harden. He also wills the honor of being president of his class to Billy Cheves. Aline Stuart wills her cheerful nature to Alene Miller. Marshall Runion wills his love for Miss Watts’ Latin to John Cox. Nannette Livingston wills her cute smile to Beatrice Webb. Henry Foglesong wills his sporty nature and red hair to Ronald Powell. Mamie Russell wills her bobbed hair and freckles to Naomi Cannaday. William Bones wills his fame as a walking history to Clarence Miller. Sena Thompson wills her low and musical voice to John Crowder. Robert Bunts wills his right as the tallest boy ever to graduate from P. H. S. to Hastwell Sizer. Anna Allison wills her flirting ability to Maxine Umberger.

time in our scholastic lives we were overawed (the first time being when we entered the sacred portals and were dubbed Freshmen). Otherwise, we didn’t feel one bit different from what we had before. We were, evidently, not very responsive to environment. And would you believe it, we didn’t seem to care about anything much but having a good time, when we should have been obtaining our education and planning life careers and so on. From this one might judge that the class of ’23 did neither toil nor spin nor set the midnight oil to burn- ing. Though we fear we never quite equaled the lilies in glory, neither did we become old and wrinkled because of much study, which we read somewhere was a weariness to the flesh. We were only normal boys and girls who really studied quite a lot when it was absolutely urgent. It was during ’23 that the class started their famous picture gallery. During the previous year, we boasted only one very swell and obscure calendar, while in the second semester of the following year no less than twenty, and no more than twenty- five, calendars dotted the walls and various articles of furniture, such as desks, chairs, and blackboards; the only explanation is that it was a sudden and over-artistic fad. Hikes, parties and entertainments further added to the pleasure of the class, being “heartily enjoyed by all those pres- ent.” Through it all you may see that 1923 has been “out for a good time,” but don’t think that we are never serious and think no deeper than the “thrills” of class night or various forms of jollification. We truly realize how much dear Pulaski High School has done for us and how very, very much we owe her that we can never repay. We hate to leave you, P. H. S., now that the time for departure has come, but we trust that you will not completely forget the fun-loving and oftentimes thoughtless, but ever loyal, members of the class of ’23.

Alice Lowman wills her habit of being tardy to Martha Der- rick. Lillian Pack wills her gentle, Puritan nature to Evelyn Worley. Daisy Nelson wills her love for all things christened “Henry” to Vera Groseclose. Gertrude Jennings wills her spontaneous giggle to Conway Smith. Dorothy Jameson wills her brains to Howard Gilmer. Minnie Cannaday wills her “specks” and rosy cheeks to Virginia Roberts. Fourth: To the members of the faculty we will the following: To Mr. Brugh, our sincere appreciation of his kind advice and inspiring influence during the past year. To Miss Thomas, our gratitude and thanks for her most helpful aid all through our four years of high school. Also, a class that will love her almost as much as we do, not quite, though, for it couldn’t be found. To Mr. Eckman, the respect and love of each individual member of the Class of ’23. We also will to him a French class that will study regularly all irregular verbs assigned by him. To Miss Finks, an English class that does not believe brevity to be the soul of wit. To Miss Chaffin, a Geometry class that can put a figure on the board in less than forty-five minutes and “stand up” when reciting. To Miss Watts, a Latin class that does not kick at too long or too short lessons. Also, a smaller Virgil class. In testimony whereof, we have written and signed and do declare this paper this the 23rd day of May to be our last will and testament. Minnie Cannaday, ’23, Testator.
