jpAST ILL AND ESTAMENT s ' 7 rm ” E, THE Senior Class of Pulaski High School, being of un- ( Js I sound mind, reposing memory and not much understand- ing, realizing that our scholastic career is about ended, and being desirous of leaving some remembrance to the faculty and others, although we do not have much faculty for leaving, do make and constitute this our last will and testament: To the City of Pulaski we bequeath an overflow of both banks — -ol Peak Creek and the blueprints for a community house and a new school building. To our efficient superintendent, Professor E. L. Darst, we hereby leave a coat-of-mail, guaranteed to resist and withstand any attack of any de- scription, whether verbal or in print. To Mr. Hensel Eckman, we give and bequeath in exchange for four years of heroic and persistent effort with us, our best wishes for his success with the Junior Class, who will continue to try his patience and make strenu- ous demands upon his intelligence during the year 1931-32. To Miss Du Val, we bequeath our collective admiration and the in- dividual and personal love of Jim Joe Crockett and Joe Dink Whitaker, to have and to hold either Jim Joe or Joe Dink forever. To Mr. Walker, we give and bequeath an embossed copy of the multi- plication table and a steam heated bus for transporting his hilarious teams anywhere and everywhere. To our beloved Mrs. Hall we leave our exemplary behavior for the past year and our admiration for her old and antique English, her pure diction and commanding manner. To Miss Blair, who learned to speak French so fluently at Max Meadows, we give and bequeath “Un tres beau jeune honime. Q’ils de- meuerent longtemps et heureusement.” To Miss Ellett, in whose class we have never been, we leave the Sopho- more and Freshman Classes w r ith our profound sympathy. To Miss Croswhite we bequeath a perfect skeleton and a new and fra- grant supply of toads for use in the sensitive incoming classes. To kind Miss Kinder, we fondly and faithfully leave a stab at Caesar, an attack on Cicero, and a bust of Vergil. 57

We go to the arena to see Early Jordan fight the handsome and danger- ous bull. Oh! here comes the handsome toreador dressed in yellow! And who is the fair senorita leaning over the balcony throwing roses upon the famous Leo, fighter of bulls? Of course it is Frances Kash, who has come to wish him luck. Alas, Leo is hurt and is carried out of the arena, and Emma Myers, a trained nurse, takes charge of him and nurses him back to his rightful beauty, though he will soon fight and loose it again. Now “Biz,” my worthy chaperon, and I are off to the wilds of Africa. As we are traveling along visiting pyramids and places of interest, we come upon Russell Williams and Charles White, extracting articles from the tomb of King Shoam, searching for biscuits just like mother use to make. There was mosquito netting over their heads as they are greatly bothered by the insects and pests that Charles sprays with flv-tox while Russell digs. It is an amusing sight, but we must now go to the good old America. We sail and as we are crossing the English channel we pass Katherine Knapp trying to swim across with her lunch on her back. She’ll get to England and then join us on her trip home. We have had a delightful time and will try to settle down for another fifty years when we will take another trip to cheer old age.

To Miss Pugh we give and devise a crown of orange blossoms. May she soon wear them! To Miss Dalton we leave the sincere wish that her chiropractor may strengthen his own backbone, and that she may change some chemistry and physics to more practical domestic science and happiness. Pearle Baugh and Margaret Manuel leave their perfect posture to Bill Weatherford. Neil Fine wills his standing place on the literary programs to Frances M umpower. Nancy Branwell wills her “scales” to Lyons Jones, since she has not been able to make any impression upon them. Mary Board passes on her gavel and her gushing manner to Ruth Eastman. Virgil Anderson leaves the tediousness of the class room for the joy of the open field. Regina Bowles leaves for Richmond on short notice. Jack Bones and Bob Crabtree reluctantly release their Berrys to the Junior Class in general. Alice Breedlove, Irene Rupe and Emma Myers will their boisterous and hilarious manners to Abbie Whitaker. Ralph Bocock generously bequeaths his beloved motorcycle to continue to carry the high school girls. Inez Bunts and Virginia White leave their reserved seat in a Hupmobile to anyone who is able to beat them to it. Jim Joe Crockett gives and bequeaths his sonorous voice to Billy Carson. Virginia Coleman and Katherine Knapp will their incomprehensible giggles, their private and personal jokes and intangible secrets to Catherine Wood and Carmen Dalton. Elizabeth Cox, for the gratification of the faculty, leaves her meek, quiet, demure and submissive disposition to the entire Junior Class. Graham Davis, feeling that he can manage with half of his freckles, leaves the other half to Lillian Davis. Rena Sue Groseclose and Henry Martin bequeath to Margaret Bane their special senior privilege of being late four days out of five. Said bequest to be delivered by special delivery. 58
