History of the Junior Class or the Class of ’24 In the fall of 1922, when school reopened after the summer vacation, thirty pupils reported ready for work in the Junior Class of P. H. S. This class was put in charge of Mr. Hensel Eckman and the school term of 1922 and ’23 moved off smoothly. Since that time the Junior Class has made a record in school work, literary activities, and athletics which will be hard to surpass. Of course the Junior Class is not a group of angelic beings who always know their lessons perfectly, never whisper during classes, and never have to stay in after school, but it is just a class of American boys and girls who possess “class spirit” and “school spirit.” The achievements of the members of this class are not so much for the honor of the individual as for the honor of the Junior Class and to help P. H. S. maintain its reputation as one of the best schools of its size in the State of Virginia. Now let us note some of the achievements of the Junior Class in school work and literary activities. There are many good students in the class, but the best of these is Martha Derrick, the president of the class. She is one of the leading students in the race for the gold scholarship medal which is given annually. Howard Gilmer and Sylvia Byrd are the best debaters in the High School, and Margaret Dalton one of the best elocutionists. The Junior Class also plays an important part in the “Vir- ginian Literary Society.” Many of the members of the class hold or have held high offices in the society. Having seen what the J unior Class has done in school work and literary activities, let us glance back over the record it has made in athletics. The president of the Athletic Association, Wil- liam Allison, is a member of the Junior Class. He was also captain of the 1922 football team. Howard Gilmer, another Junior, was the manager of this team. Of the 1922 football squad, six first team men and one substitute were Juniors, hour of these were also stars in baseball. Three members of the girls’ basketball squad, including the captain, Pauline Bopp, are also Juniors. With this record in the past and hoping even to surpass it in the future, the Junior Class hopes to become, in a short time, the Senior Class of ’24. Conway Smith, ’24, Historian.

Toast to the Juniors Here ' s to the third year of P. II. S. With thirty members we are blessed. A class just like it never before, If we all get through in ’ 24 . Here ' s to the Juni ors of Pulaski High, With Math and English we mount to the sky. A class that never from duty would shirk; When we think of diplomas We all go to work. Then again to the Juniors of P. II. S. Each and every one the very best. Their ability and honesty is always found When tests and exams are apt to roll around. Margaret Dalton, ’ 24 . t Class Poem From start to finish, first to last, Our class does all excel; There never was another class That did things quite so well. In classes, oh! such diligence; And in athletics, too, Our boys were always leaders — They always put things through. Everything this class has done We can not here unfold. Well might we say and say in truth “The half has not been told. " So here ' s to the Junior Class As their names in history pass; And we know they ' ll make a record Which none can e ' er surpass. Naomi Cannaday , ’ 24 .
