Reporters: Woodson Cummings, Chas. Gatewood, Hurst Owen. RECEIVES INVITATION Of course by now everyone has heard about the champion team’s invitation to play in the National Tournament held this year at Youngstown, Ohio. This came as a wonderful surprise and equally great opportunity for P. H. S. The ex- penses would of course be pretty heavy, the team being required to furnish railroad tare and Youngstown furnishes entertain- ment. Surely this is the greatest honor that has ever come to dear Ole Hi, and some- thing that Pulaski and Southwest Virginia have to be mighty proud of. So let’s not let this slip by. With everyone backing us why shouldn’t we go into that trournament with the same determination and courage that has car- ried us through many games victoriously, then make a record up there? With a VA proudly written upon each jersey, we’ll play as we ' ve never played before. An- swer this question, Who couldn’t play basketball when they are representing good ole Virginia, Southwest Virginia, Pu- laski and our own Hi? Many enthusiasts have already given liberal amounts for the team which are deeply appreciated. The girls aided by the boys are eagerly working to put this opportunity across, so come on everybody and let’s put Pulaski on the map and keep it there. ’26 BY HECK When ole ’26 rolls around, Ve re going to put out feet on the ground; 25 was good and better still. But ’26 huh — you’ll have to take a pill, by heck. W e ve boosted and boosted and boosted and yelled. We 11 put all the other schools down in the dell; They all will say, yes, ves, yes. Hurrah for P. H. S., by heck. Seniors think that they come first, But Freshies make them die of thirst; Juniors think that they come next, But everybody’s good — by heck. Our school? You know it’s best — Seniors, Juniors, Sophs and Freshies, they never rest; We 11 boost and boost ’till we have to roost; Our annual will get the crest, by heck. Out little Oriole will sing for us, It will do its best, ’twill never rust; And if 1926 isn’t the best, well — We’ll all bust, by heck. — Mozelle Dalton. ENGLISH To make our “Oriole” a great success, We each and all must do our best. Go on and strive with all our might To try, to gain, to win the fight. Please don’t think that I am a fool Because I say “P. H. S.” is a fine old school. The “Oriole” is the best book of all. We must hold it up and never let it fall. We are going to make a complete success Of our “Oriole” of ’26, Seniors, Juniors, Sophies fine, If we survive the time. Our glorious time will come in grand old ’29. — Violet Kersey. Familiar Snatches of Conversation Heard in and Around Hi this Week “I’m thrilled to death; honest I can’t believe it’s really true. Oh! wc must go. Just think everybody will hear about Pu- laski and P. II. S. You know wc must do our best and if we go to Youngstown bring back the same record we took with us.” “Believe me, they played ball; aren’t wc the stuff winning the State Champion- ship?” " Heavens! those hair cuts; they look ex- actly like convicts; of course I don’t mean their expressions. Nerve — well they haveit.” “Can you help type the ads today; the “Oriole” goes to press Monday.” “Demerits! How silly; the very idea. I know I ' ll get about a million. Who on earth suggested such a crazy idea for P. H. S. — goodness.” “Can anybody draw this figure? I simply cannot get this proposition.” “I know it; she told me to stop talking and I wasn ' t saying a word.” “Just because I didn’t quite know all that memory work on Hamlet is no sign that I should be called down in such a manner.” “Oh, me! I’m tired to death and that awful pain in the back of my head.” “Pass such a test — honest, I didn’t know a thing.” “The grandest food you ever ate. The Rotarians surely were nice to think about asking us.’’ “Heck! Another mistake — hit E for R. Somebody lend me an eraser before Miss Woodruff comes in here.” A P. H. S. COASTING PARTY O. what’s more fun than a coasting partv With girls and boys of Pulaski High School. Lessons all learned we can greet each other hearty . No. not a thought of a book nor a rule. Down the hill we go; each one has a sled Merry shouts of laughter now fill the air. LTp the hill we go, the fire burns red. It’s just all fun, for we have not a care. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” A very true saying we are sure, But, combine the two, we’ve a school to enjoy. And P. H. S. is bound to stand and endure. — Mary Eagle Cecil, Junior. SHE’S A LITTLE BEAUTY I’m simply wild about her, Gee, she rates about ninety-nine per. Honest, she’s the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen. But gosh! All the other fellows about her seem just as keen. I stand off and look at her in a daze. I think, for you how I ' d work for that raise, you’re so polished, neat and trim, but with you chances for a guy like me are slim. To ask to take you out once I wish I could dare. Wouldn’t the people turn and stare? Today as I walk sadly by you I turn and longingly watch you from afar. When courage comes to me and gritting my teeth I loudly cry — “Heck it all ; why can’t you be my new car?” HI-ETTS “Just think, invited to be in the National Tournament.” These words are on all our lips. Oh! let’s work like everything and then go up there and PLAY. How those typewriters click. “Oriole” grows bigger and bigger each day. Miss Finks, we missed you Monday and Tuesday. So glad when you came back; your voice is gladly heard, even if it is a bit throaty at present. Seen roaming around the halls of Hi, several strange looking individuals who must have had the misfortune of becoming parted from their wigs. Miss Frye, we command you to make the “flu " flee and fly straight back to Hi. The highest record made by anyone in typewriting belongs to Hurst Owen, who handed in forty exercises in one week. If you don’t think that was hard try and do it. Coming soon! A P. H. S. play. Every- body get interested. It will be a frolic for you. At last we have found out who Miss Woodruff’s “Hampton” is. This much- spoken-of person turns out to be a place — Hampton Roads. We don’t know just why she is particularly interested in that location, but we might guess. Right here and now, the basket ball girls would like to thank Mr. Kirchner for set- ting us up after the last game. Those drinks were good and we enjoyed ’em. Also all those who attended the Rotary luncheon wish to express their sincere ap- preciation for such an enjoyable occasion. INTRODUCTION OF THE TEACHERS (Miss Lillian Woodyard) Miss Woodyard has won a place in the hearts of all the students of Ole Hi, al- though this is her first year with us. She is a graduate of Westhampton and teaches Latin at P. H. S. Her third and fourth year Latin classes are small, but that doesn’t mean she is not known to the rest of those classes. If you don’t believe this you should be in her Senior study period for a little while. ■t |c i| INTRODUCTION OF SENIORS William Thomas — Let us introduce you to Bill Thomas, one of the most valuable assets of our room. Bill isn’t one of those “A” students, but what does that matter? He manages to pull through and has lots of friends to boot. Bill has been very successful in what little business life he has taken part in, such as getting ads for the “Oriole.” The way he has started he will get somehwere before he quits. Frances Mullins — “Who’s that com- ing down the street looking so very petite?” Yes, that’s Frances. You’ll know her the second time you see her too, ’cause “Frankie’s” face is one of the kind that always remains in one’s memory. Her good looks are not all she possesses, however. She is gifted with a remarkable ability to play the piano — and you just bet she can play basketball too. Hallie Swaim— Hallie just arrived this year, but she has lost no time making friends. Everyone who meets “Hal” likes her from the start. She has a person- ality that attracts and this personality has played havoc in the hearts of many in school — and also in the town. We hear that Hallie is a great lover of “Pierce- Arrows.” How about it, Hallie?
