Established January 1926 5T1 j r ©attlrr Published by The Seniors Volume One PULASKI HIGH SCHOOL, JANUARY 19, 1926 Number One STAFF OF TATTLER Editor Margaret Dyer Assistants: Frances Mullins, Mary Draper, Ruth Jackson, Lillian Lowman. Reporters: Woodson Cummings, Chas. Gatewood, Hurst Owen NEW CLUB IS ORGANIZED Have you heard of the Boosters? Yes. but you want to know all about them, now admit it, don ' t you? Well herein doth lie the whole history of the Boosters and their cl ub. Not so many days ago the Seniors, aided by Miss Thomas, decided that more in- terest and enthusiasm concerning the “Oriole " was badly needed. After much discussio n the idea of having a Booster Club was agreed upon. That is how this new club came into being. In order to carry out the work and decide upon some definite plan of advance (to use the words of honorable Caesar) five committees were selected which are — the school, art, pub- licity, literary and speakers, each with its own individual purpose. From the school committee the plan of Booster Week was marked out. The combination of the publicity and art committees produced our posters, the efforts of the literary com- mittee result in " The Tattler,” while through the speaker ' s committee several representatives have appeared before var- ious clubs of the city. These Boosters are attempting to produce a bigger and better Oriole. You want a good annual and so do we; we are doing our part and you will do yours, Hi, so let ' s all pull together and help each other — then the result will spell SUC- CESS. HEE-HAWS Billy H. — How do you get so many girls? Chick K. — Oh! 1 just sprinkle a little gasoline on my handkerchief. NOTE TO MISS WOODYAR1) “Dear teacher, kindly excuse my son ' s absence yesterday. He fell in the mud. By doing same you will greatly oblige his mother. " Mr. Eckman (to Freshie during Science exams; Freshie is not writing but sitting idly) — Why aren ' t you writing? Freshie — I ain’t got no pen. Mr. Eckman — Where’s you grammar? Freshie — She’s dead. H= He He MYSTERY IS SOLVED The mystery has been solved. We are both thankful and relieved that it was not a terrible, blood curdling one, but one of pleasure and delight. The Boosters are certainly workers of the mystic as their Booster Week showed. Oriole says: “I am perfectly delighted at the interest you have shown in me; for ages I’ve longed for nil you students at dear ole P. H. S. to really like me and help me to be my best. This of course is impossible unless everyone is willing to help. Do you know when just one person doesn’t think anything about me and doesn’t care, why it hurts terribly. Please let me thank you, oh! so much, for all you are doing. " Yes sir, we are surely going to back Oriole, BASKETBALL Faculty-Alumnae vs. P. H. S. For benefit of “The Oriole,’’ Pulaski’s High School Annual, under the auspices of Senior Class of ’26, the Faculty-Alumnae have dared to play the fast High School Regulars on Parish House Courts, Friday night at 7.30 p. m. The probable line-up for our venture- some opponents will be: Misses Finks, Thomas, Greene, Moore, Hurley, Daugh- erty, Tucker, K. Frye, Moyers and M. Painter. For the alumnae Polly Bopp, the speedy center of ' 24, and Ethel Nunn, of ' 25. Come see P. Cecil, Mullins, Dyer, M. Bopp, Capt. Gilmer. T. Cecil and Bones as regulars compete with our fair teachers and friends of alumnae. This game is a part of campaign of Booster Week in P. H. S. toward financing “The Oriole.’’ Every basketball fan should not miss this spectacular event. Remember Friday night. Parish House, at 7.30 prompt. BOOSTERS SEND REPRESENTATI VES TO CLUBS Dean Creger Sent Dean Creger was sent as representative from the Booster Club to the Rotary Club Monday night to put the subject of Booster Week before them and ask for their sup- port. This was brought about in a very persistent manner and all the men showed a spirit as if they were school pupils them- selves. Great enthusi asm was shown and they were glad to help us in any way pos- sible. Several ads were given by different business men and it is hoped that more can be gotten. They also appointed Mr. Knapp to come over and speak on “School Spirit’’ during the program in the High School auditorium at 2.30 p. m., Friday. The enthusiasm and “boosting spirit” from this club is accepted by a very thank- ful and appreciative class. Selection, Midnight Serenaders. Kathleen Hurst Speaks to Woman’s Club The Senior Class sent Kathleen Hurst and Margaret Kirkman as representatives to the Woman’s Club Monday afternoon to explain Booster Week, in the school. In the short talk made by Kathleen the object, main points and the hoped for re- sults were explained. The club seemed very much in favor of boosting “The Oriole” as much as possible and said they would back up all plays and the like which the class or school should put on. This co-operation coming from the Woman’s Club is greatly appreciated by the Senior Class and all those concerned in Booster Week. Margaret Kirkman Speaks to Kiwanis Club The Kiwanis greeted very cordially two representatives, Margaret Kirkman and Kathleen Hurst at their business meeting held Thursday night in the Pulaski Nation- al Bank Building. Their mission was to explain Booster Week and to ask for their hearty co-operation and support in making “The Oriole” one grand success. After the talks were made several men responded by giving ads to help finance “The Oriole” which is greatly appreciated by the entire “Oriole” staff.

A MISTAKE OF MANY Rose Neil, formerly a Pulaski High School student and a resident of Pulaski, had returned for a short visit with friends, not having been here for several consecu- tive years. She had moved with her parents shortly after her graduation; so, she had completely lost all connection with her beloved Pulaski Hi. Rose ' s friends had graduated, also gone to college, consequently knew nothing of their Alma Mater, so naturally they were unable to send any news to Rose, who had finished her last semester. “My, what a change,” she exclaimed as she . stepped off the train. “Could I be getting off at the wrong station, ’’she thought. “No, this was Pulaski, but not the Pulaski she had known several years ago. Her friends greeted her and question after question wound its course to school affairs — “Say, Rose, guess the surprise, " her chum eagerly teased. “Can’t you? P. H. S. has an annual, “The Oriole,” and it was given honorable mention at the Chicago Art Exhibit and they say its to be better this year than ever before and will probably take the prize. Just think! They’re overflowing with school spirit; the Seniors have organized a Booster Club, and my! they surely know how to boost too. " “Let’s go over and congratulate them, " sang a chorus of merry pals. THOUGHT FOR TODAY How many of the readers are just as surprised as the new comer? How many know enough about our “Oriole” to tell a new comer? Don’t get rusty on the news of your own school. Come on, and show a little school pep. HI-ETTS Subscriptions for the “Oriole” are now being taken. All those wishing to subscribe please see one of the Seniors. Whew! now that exams are over we can at last draw a breath of relief, can’t we. Hi? Hi is so sorry that the mean ole steam had to go and burn you, Robley, and we hope you will be back with us right away. Don’t forget the game tonight. Votes for the “Who’s Who” have been counted by three hard working and very mathematical students. They keep their mouths tightly closed concerning the re- sults. So look for them in the “Oriole.” [ 108 ]
