Frank Board and W. V. Smith. The High School Orchestra, which is sponsored by Mrs. W. S. Gilmer and which has in it as a member and old friend “Doc " Harman, re- sponded most favorably to our many requests. The Pulaski Music Club has also done much by way of building up music appreciation in our school thru the many representatives which they sent to us for entertainment. Mr. George Russell, the internationally known radio artist, entertained the school with many varied selections. We were particularly fortunate in having Mr. Russell present at our school. The ministers in town favored us with many excellent short talks in chapel this past year, appealing deeply to the interests and ideals of the students. Mr. Brewer and Mr. Macgill also favored us with instructive talks in which they en- couraged school spirit and the maintenance of higher standards of honor among the students. The school gained much by way of art appreciation thru Mr. Eckman ' s sincere efforts in having enabled us to sponsor an unusually fine art exhibit. Many copies of the world’s greatest masterpieces were, for the first time, brought to our eyes. A small admission was charged which enabled us to buy pictures for the school. The Sophomore class had com- plete charge of the arrangements. 1 rograius The final debate of the Jefferson and Lindbergh Societies was held May 7 in the as sembly hall. The four best debaters, who were chosen by means of elimination debates, contested in what was termed the most interesting debate of the year. The affirmative was upheld by Margaret Spraker and Robert Eastman, while the negative was upheld by Margaret Matheney and Dorothy Taylor. The subject of the debate was “Resolved, That the Counties of Virginia should Adopt the County Manager Form of Government.” The judges, Mr. Charles Macgill, Mrs. George Carnahan, and Mrs. John Sneed, though having favored the affirmative, complimented the negative debaters of the subject on their strong points and splendid debat ing ability. The debating medal, which is given each year to the best debater in the school, was awarded to Margaret Spraker, a member of the Senior Class. Another attractive feature of the program was a violin solo by Elizabeth Cox, accom- panied by Martha Cox. The program concluded with several good numbers by the high school quartet, L. A. Kinzer, Wilbur Lewey, “Bee” Kinzer, and Foy Aust. K 122
