INEZ KEITH WEEKS “ Pigeon” “ Thy modesty is a candle to thy merit. " Art Editor; Literary and Dramatic Club ’25-’26; La Societe Francaise ’25-’26; Rapunzel Club ’24-’25; Virginia Lit- erary Society ’22-’23, ’23-’ 24. Inez is noted for her ability to draw. You will notice this if you look care- fully at the drawings in the “Oriole.” At first she may seem a bit calm and reser ed but after getting acquainted with her you will find that she is al- ways ready for a good time. STEPHEN MARK LYON " Bally” “ Pleasure fills my youthful years; Drop study ij it interferes. " Circulation Manager of Oriole; Baseball Squad ’23-’ 24, ’24-’25; Football Squad ’23-’ 24, ’24-’25; Vice-President Mono- gram Club ' 23- ’24 ; Literary Society ’23-’ 24, ’24-’25; Literary and Dramatic Club ’25- ’26; Suicide Club ’25-’26. Junior spent the first half of this year seeking something (an educa- tion presumably) at Roanoke Hi, hence he drew an unusual blank at the top of the page. However, he lost no time renewing his old acquain- tances around his native soil — for proof see “Who’s Who.”

LOUISE VALENTINE WHITT “Whitt” “ ’Tis good nature only wins the heart.” Ad Editor; Literary and Dramatic Club ’25-’26; Virginia Literary Society ’23- ’24, ’24-’25. Louise may have an aspiration to become an excellent student, but it isn’t her greatest aim in life. She is a definition of cheer and joy, being able to make us laugh more in a minute than a clown could in a week. Her whole interest lies in the name of Radford. BLANCHE LORA WHITAKER " Jack” “7 am happy all the time, hut to be everyone’s jriend is just my one supreme dream. " Club Editor; Literary and Dramatic Club ’25- ' 26; La Societe Francaise ' 25-’26; Virginia Literary Society ’23-’24. Blanche is a girl of few words but she is always ready to help us in any- thing we undertake. Although she is somewhat reserved she has a touch of humor and is usually telling a new joke. Indeed, we are proud to have her with us and we wish her success in the future years. [ 34 ]

CLASS HISTORY W HAT is the significance of the date, September 17, 1922? Yes, it sounds like Miss Thomas in History class. But it is far from it. If it were History it would go in one ear and out the other, whereas this date will be stamped forever on our minds as Seniors. Any of the Class of ’26 can tell you why it is important. It was the day on which fifty-two young ladies and gentle- men of the greatest intelligence, in their own opinion and no one else’s, entered the great halls of learning — the halls of Pulaski High School. They thought they knew quite a lot, but in the opinions of the upper classmen they were as green as the greenest of grasshoppers. Some time during the first day their air of bravado fled. They were informed that they were “rats.” It then dawned upon their blank minds that they would have to endure nine long months of “rathood” before they could pass out of this land of torture. They found out that when great peals of laughter issued from the Senior, Junior, and Sophomore rooms, it was usually caused by a teacher or someone else tell- ing about some of the unique answers the Freshmen had given to questions asked them. It was very trying. The first four months dragged by and then we began hearing the groaning and moaning of many students. When asked what disease they had, the only answer they gave was, “Exams.” We pictured some of the most terrible exams imaginable. Then the teachers be- gan talking about them. We were scared stiff and had night- mares for a week beforehand. When the monsters arrived they were no harder, if as hard, as our seventh grade exams had been. Afterwards our heads were held a little higher. So pass- ed the nine long months while we were Freshmen. Then, those who were so fortunate as to pass, became Sophomores. How important we thought we w ' ere. Our noses became highly elevated. It was now our privilege to taunt as we had been taunted. The poor Freshmen were the victims as usual, The year flew by, the monotony being broken now [ 36 ]
