Christmas Shopping,” by Emily Bushong, were delightfully given as concluding numbers Miss Peter ' s Latin Class also favored the student body with a Christmas song sung in Latin P. H. S. was hostess to many patrons as well as to many old-timers (alumnae). The beauti- fully decorated Christmas tree in the center of the hall added much to the spirit of Christ- mas, and Santa’s visit to each home-room brought merry tidings and good cheer to every student at old P. H. S. Several joint debates between the societies have been held. These programs showed much progress along the reading and debating lines. special m ssevn u v cm e ings Among the other interesting features that were enjoyed this year were solos rendered by Messrs. 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

(Suff-knL and fancl-cuff. s IE BASSWELLS were a very young married couple; that is their marriage was still a dream and, of course, they were very young. John Basswell was a very promising insurance agent. He had already gotten a raise, in only one year. June Basswell was a small brunette with long hair and very modern ideas. Although not always showing it, they loved each other dearly. “John, dear,” entreats June, “please remember this is our first formal theatre party with your new friends from the office. YVe must, just simply must, make a good impression on them, especially your boss, Mr. Jedson, and his wife.” “Yes, dear, I know,” answers John, “even better than you. In fact, I am more afraid of the rest than the boss, because 1 hardly know them, and I’ve known the boss long enough to argue with him.” “And you know,” she continued, not heeding his reply, “Mrs. Jedson is so aristocratic and formal and — and everything. 1 know my beaded georgette will not look nice to her — O — John! Did you get your cuff-links from the jeweler where you were having them fixed? You didn’t?” as he nodded the negative; “how could you, when you know your others do not go with the studs on your dress suit? Go down right this minute and get them. I declare, if we don’t hurry and get started we’ll be late and that would be awful!” John hurries to get the desired articles which, he remarked later, “Weren’t worth a whoop, anyway.” The time draws near when they must start and still no John. June is frantic. Going to the tele- phone a one-sided conversation, or at least one side of the conver- sation is heard. “Is this the jeweler’s?” Evidently it is. “Has Mr. Basswell come in yet for his cufi-links?” “Left an hour ago?” she gas ps; “Did he say anything about what he was going to do, but of course he wouldn’t — so like a man not to tell anyone what he was going to do.” “That’s all, thank you.” “I will, never you fear,” when asked the usual sales request. What must she do, John has not arrived yet, well — “It’s three- fourths of an hour until time to start so I will finish dressing, so I can help John — he never could find anything, anyway”— this to herself. Eifteen minutes pass and still no John. “I believe I’ll go mad if he doesn ' t hurry up — what’s that- — footsteps — not John, there’s more than one man. Who can it be? They are coming in here!” “Hello there, June, let us in, will you?” This from a man with John’s voice. 124
