mid-term exams arri -ed. Could it be possible we had just fooled away the first half of the year? First one teacher and then another would tell us that we must get down to work if we expected to be seniors. Finally we realized that though it was all right to have fun we must study also. Some of our class- mates failed to realize this and when the final exams came — alas! Only twenty-five were allowed to be called, what we had worked so hard all through high school to reach — Seniors. CHAPTER I ’— “SEXIORS” Our last year has been a busy one. Some folks think Sen- iors haven’t anything to do. We thought so once, but it would keep anyone busy trying to take full ad ' antage of our one or two pri ' ileges and wondering how on earth we could acquire one more at least. Then there’s our annual that we must give much attention to and try to make it the best ever published. Now let us stop a minute and think. Is this honor of being a Senior really as great as it seems? There’s a sadness as well as gladness, for your school days are the happiest days of your life. And now to think of leaving all your dear class-mates and teachers who have worked so faithfully with you for four long years, and also to our principal must be gi ' en some credit for our Class being just exactly what it is. But I think our memory will not let us forget our friends in P. H. S., even though it did let us forget our studies at times. James Cummings, ’25. 33

SENIOR HISTORY CHAPTER I— " FRESHMEN” O N THE first day of the ninth month, nineteen hundred and twenty-one, we, a band of fifty, entered what is known as a High School Career. In the grades we had been accustomed to being looked up to at least by the ones lower than we. But now it seemed as though e -eryone looked down on us and called us " Freshies.” It took us nearly all of the nine months to get over the feeling of self-consciousness that we felt when anyone so much as glanced our way. Of course, e -erything the Seniors did we tried to do also but usually got the worst of it. By the time school closed, however, we were beginning to breathe a bit more freely. Also most of us had managed to get our hair bobbed, but what was the use — the Seniors didn’t e en laugh at us any more. Frankly we had ceased to exist so far as they were concerned. And so we ciuietly and peacefully took our finals and most of us became Sopho- mores. CHAPTER II— " SOPHOMORES” After three short months of acation, we entered our second year of high school. Now our time had come, we thought, when we could make fun of the freshmen. But before this fun had gotten started good one of the Seniors said: " They are neither man nor woman. They are neither brute nor human — They are Sophs.” So you see e en though we were one step farther toward suc- cess it seemed until we gained success we would be looked down upon. I ' he subjects being harder, they took most of our time. Com- mencement finally came and with more attention paid us than last year, we became Juniors. CHAPTER HI— " JUNIORS” This having been willed to us by last year’s Juniors, we were true to our name " Jolly Juniors.” We made the year a jolly one — perhaps too jolly for some of our teachers.

CLASS PROPHECY S LL CLASSES that go out from Pulaski High School have a prophet of some kind. Owing to the fact that I am always prophesying about and for the Seniors, I suppose they thought 1 was the best they could do. Permit me to lift the veil and bring before you what the future holds for the Senior Class of 1925. Great things, of course, are in store for a class so gifted and studious and so far reaching in intellectual attainments — a class that dreams and plans and looks forward to the day when they can accomplish something worth while, when it can be said that the world has been made a better place to live in by their having li ed in it. First allow me to foretell the future of our illustrious Presi- dent, Mildred Carson. She will begin teaching after the com- pletion of a college course but her perseverance in the classroom and her conscientious efforts will soon win for her the superin- tendency. For the future of Margaret Brewer, I see one of the greatest lawyers the country has ever known. By her great skill and the soundness of a logical mind she has won this distinction and is permitted to argue before the Supreme Court of the Ihiited States — a privilege granted to few. For Mabel Coalson, I see her the mistress of a pretty little bungalow with roses twined around the back door. Domestic duties have not changed the buoyant happy disposition of her girlhood days. She is also one of the foremost charity and wel- fare workers in the city where she resides. For Marie Hardy I see an exceptionally brilliant career. She has ceased to be the quiet staid “grandma” of her high school days; she puts her thoughts into action, she is a famous liteiary woman as well as a social reformer; she is also Congresswoman from the Ninth District and none of us will be surprised when we find that the Hardy Reform Bill will pass Congress by an o ' er- whelming majority. To Lena Gray, who is steadfast, trustworthy and ambitious, success is sure to come. There are many things she could do but she prefers school teaching to anything else, but she doesn’t punish her pupils severely as you might think she would be- cause she hasn’t forgotten her own mischievous school days. 34
