THE ORIOLE are to be destroyed at once. Also our gratitude for her most helpful aid during our high school career. To Miss Birdsong, the exclusive right to translate this, our will, into Latin and a study period in which only the deaf and dumb are allowed. To Miss Hughes, a muffler for her fast, commanding voice, to prohibit her from saying more than five hundred words every ten seconds. Sixth: To all we leave behind us, we will the joys of school life, without its sorrows; the pleasant and helpful associations we have had with faculty and students; the capacity to form lasting friendships, the one with the other; and a full share in the tender memories which will always gather as we think of Pulaski High School — to have and to hold unto them and their successors forever. In witness whereof, we sign and seal this solemn last will and testament in the presence of our faculty, fellow students, friends and relatives, this Commencement Day, the twenty- second of May, nineteen hundred and twenty-four. Howard Gilmer, Jr., ’24.

Fifth: To the faculty we will the following: To Professor Brugh, our deepest appreciation for the lectures made before the Senior Class during the year, and for the in- terest which he has shown in each one of us, and also, a football team which will- — some day — beat Roanoke. To Miss Thomas, our love and respect, and the right to feel that everyone of us is indebted to her for many favors and kind- nesses and the never lacking interest she has taken in us during our four years of high school. We also will to her a mansion on “Top of Peak Knob.” To Mr. Eckman, a French class that will never, never use present participles, “regardless,” and a Chemistry class that will hand in irregulary all regularly assigned note books and problems. We also will to him our many thanks for the numerous things he has done for us. To Miss Finks, all our “ain’ts” and incorrect English, which

THE ORIOLE © PROPHECY OF CLASS OF ’24 EHOLD! a prophet is raised up among you! Come, gaze with me into the crystal ball. Let me rend the veil that bars our mortal eye from all that lies beyond the present. Let us annihilate time and step beyond the present — say twenty years. It is 1944, my friends. We have wandered back to visit the haunts of our youth and clasp again the hands of classmates and friends. The Gem City has grown to vast proportions. Radford is a suburb, Dublin the hub. The Class of ’24 has invaded the exclusive circles of every walk of life from Science to Religion ; Astronomy to Agriculture. Noted among the most prominent is Albert Kirkner, who has invented a pocket radio that keeps him informed as to every thought of his best girl. Foy McGuire was the inventor of a rocket that traveled to the moon and bounced back again. He is trying to persuade Louise Kirkner to take a ride with him on his next trip. William Allison has perfected a model road that can be carried with him, unfolding in front and rolling up behind as he travels. Ah! I see a dear little bungalow, surrounded by hollyhocks, and who should be the proud mistress but my old classmate, Sylvia Byrd. You can guess the rest! And on down the block is the comer drug store. The stately proprietor may be a stranger to you, but on second thought, I’m sure you all will recognize John Cox. His face brightens. Following his glance, I behold two white-clad figures entering the establishment of Dr. Cox. There is something familiar about their faces that takes me back to my high school days. Oh! I have it! — Louise Dudley and Maxine Umberger, now head nurses at Wurno Memorial Hospital. But lo! there looms before me the dome of the Capitol. The city of Washington is presented to my view. I see the Presi- dent reclining in a wicker chair, his face pale from the effects of a long and serious illness. Further explanation is not neces- sary, as we have all seen from the late presidential campaign, the overwhelming vote for Howard Cecil Gilmer, Jr. His personal physician, Livingston Sheppard, is watching over him patiently, but for other reasons than professional ones. A stronger tie binds their hearts — they were classmates at P. H. S.
