THE ORIOLE Page 51 CLASS POEM It was in the golden month September, As I dimly yet remember, Nineteen hundred twenty-three was the year, When we first assembled here. How long and yet how short it seems Till we realized our graduation dreams. V e came to High School as Freshmen, A motly, disorganized crew, And gradually learned to our sorrow That we knew less than we thought we knew. We have our virtues and faults as do others, But to each we’re as sisters and brothers. Farewell, dear Senior Class to you; We have labored through joy and sorrow too. At the end there is victory waiting For the class that conquers all, And the Senior Class will conquer — Conquer, before it will fall. Gray Baxter, ' 27.

Page 50 THE ORIOLE HISTORY OF CLASS OF ’27 I IE history of the Class of ’27 is divided into three periods, namely, Ancient, Medieval, and Modem. The first written records of our Ancient His- tory were begun when we first entered the Fresh- man Class in Sept., 1923, with 55 members on roll. During this era of Ancient History in the First Year we studied Ancient Civilizations of the world, and we could be compared to it. We were very crude and did not know how to use our books and knowledge — by which it could hardly be called just as the men of the old stone age knew little about how to use the wonderful things in the world around them. Just as the ancients we were a merry group of pupils who did not look forward to the future but just took things as they came. But by degrees we began to learn until we entered the Medieval Age which was begun in the Second Year and lasted through the Third. Where nations became more civilized we became more used to the life in Pulaski Hi. During the Medieval Age we were very much interested in our school wo rk and also in school athletics. We had many mem- bers of the class who became noted on account of their ability as athletes. We were patriotic to our school and looked for- ward to the time when finally we would become Seniors and have privileges. At last we became Seniors which was the beginning of the Modern Era in our school life. Our teachers tried to make us take an interest in art and culture, but we did not take this seriously enough. We were called dignified Seniors but most- ly in jest. Most of us wanted to make this our best year ever and most of us did this so far as fun goes. Although we have had many ups and downs, we feel that our high school career as a whole has been a success and we are all proud to be members of the Class of ’27. Mary Overton Smith , Historian ’ 27 .

We, the Senior ( lass of ’27 of Pulaski High School, supposedly of high intellectual ability and character, and realizing that we must now part with our worldly possessions, priv- ileges and positions, do hereby will and bequeath them to the Faculty, the incoming Senior Class, and others as follows: I . To tlie Junior Class we will the following: 1. Our code of ungranted Senior privileges with the sincere hope that they will turn out to be strictly privileges and not demerits. 2. Wisdom, self-control, determination, and will power, such as has never been excelled. 3. Superior mental calibers. 4. The privilege of issuing a search warrant for all lost property. 5. The privilege of being on hall duty in order that the teachers may have more time to devote to their social contacts. 6. The privilege of cutting classes, and of enjoying being “set up” by some poor, undignified Junior. 7. Our sophisticated Susie (our mascot). II. To the Faculty we will the following: 1. To Mr. Eckman, a class excelling in punctuality, including return of re- ports, note books, payment of tuition, and especially in being in chapel at least five minutes before the last hymn. 2. To Miss Woodyard, a class not so excellent in History that they can not wait until she finishes the question (and answers it herself) to give the answer. 3. To Miss Mitchell, a Senior Latin Class that will appreciate the beauty of Vergil, know ' w ' hat’s pathetic in the pathetic half-lines, and what’s lonely in the lonely words. 4. To Miss Rosenblatt, a Commercial Department that will cooperate in gaining an important place in the world. Also a Senior Bookkeeping Class that will not attempt to prove evolution by climbing poles and chairs during class. 5. To Miss Crosswhite, a season buss ticket to Abingdon. 6. To Miss Stull, our most efficient Athletic Coach and a step-ladder. Also a Biology Class that can dissect anything from a gnat to an elephant. 7. To Mr. Hodges, a telephone call, No. 308-W, the purpose of which to make their transitory friendship develop into a matrimonial tie. 8. To Miss Finks, two-lips, to be given in the “Hall” during early fall. III. As individuals we will to the students as follows: 1. “Mont” Chumbley hereby wills his presidency of the Senior Class, along with his “black eyes,” to “Smitty.” 2. Lila Gilmer wills her editorship of The Oriole, and the right to do as she pleases at any time to, Marvin Sutherland. 3. Olin Munsey bequeaths his love for French to Hilda Bones. 4. Mary Smith wills her A’s and gentility to Bascome Ow r en. 5. Cecil Bosang wills his altitude, as well as his kinky hair, to Charley White. 6. June Hurd wills her youthfulness to Thelma Cole.
