C 9uU, 9figL Q Pins 9u,o CyyieU ONE SECOND AND THIRD PLACE CAPTURED IN SPEED CONTEST Although bowing to other high schools of the Old Dominion, principally to Manassas and Lynchburg, in the commercial speed contests held at Fredericksburg Saturday, the Pulaski High School representatives acquitted themselves with honor and brought home two speed medals, one for a second and one for a third place in the tests. The Pulaski speed team, comprising Misses Dorothy Taylor, Winifred Duncan and Charlotte Henson, together with Miss Frances Rosenblatt, of the commercial department, left Friday for the contest city. Elaborate plans for the reception and entertainment of the more than five hundred contestants from all parts of the State had been made by the Fredericksburg college wfiere the contests were conducted, and the Pulaski delegation re- ports with pleasure the attention extended them. Miss Dorothy Taylor, who took two first places in the district contest at Salem, brought back highest honors for Pulaski, she winning second place in the junior shorthand division. A silver medal, suitably inscribed, was her reward. Miss Charlotte Henson, competing in the senior shorthand division, took third place in this event, and was rewarded with a bronze medal. Miss Duncan, entered in the junior typewriting section, w r as defeated for place by only a few words per minute, the winner of first place making the record speed of 56 words per minute with three errors. While not bringing home any first places, Miss Rosenblatt today expressed herself as highly pleased by the showing made by her pupils. The students at Fredericksburg State Teachers College received the guests with a warm welcome. The college delightfully accommodated the young women guests wdth rooms and meals, and the young men were furnished meals. At 3 o ' clock the college officials sponsored the Fredericksburg tour. The guests were guided by the Sophomore class president and Senior class president. A delightful musical program was given on the campus immediately after lunch. The commercial department of the Teachers College gave an informal dance honoring the contestants. This was a splendid way of entertaining more of the Virginia districts front which students were repre- sentatives. It was an event long to be remembered. The beautiful city of Fredericksburg offered much by way of historical significance. The college welcomed the guests and the Pulaski students were very much impressed by the fine school buildings and the many advantages offered by the institution. In the contest, Dorothy Taylor won second place in Junior shorthand, writing 60 words per minute for five consecutive minutes. Charlotte Henson won third place in Senior shorthand with 90 words per minute for five minutes. Even though the local contestants did not capture typewriting awards, they made excellent records. Winifred Duncan, who easily captured the district typewriting honor, deserves special recognition lor the splendid record she made in the J unior event. Miss Rosenblatt stated that she wished to express hearty appreciation to the Rotary Club and the school board officials for their support in having financed the t rip which was made by bus. She described the Valley as being very beautiful at this season of the year and wishes that all the of students could have the same trip. Among the places visited by the students on the tour were: St. George’s church, built originally in 1732, whose first rector was an uncle of Patrick Henry; St. George ' s church yard where the brother of John Paul Jones is buried as well as John Dandridge, Martha Washington’s father and other notables; the Rising Sun tavern, built and owned by George Washington’s brother, Charles; Mary Washington house, where General Washing- ton’s mother lived for many years; the horse chestnut tree which Washington planted; Kenmore, the home of Coi. Fielding Lewis, maker of the first guns of the Revolutionary War: President James Monroe’s law office: the home of John Paul Jones and many other interesting places . — Southwest Times, May 4. 107
