T H E 0 R I O L E Page Twenty-one CHAPTER IV Seniors at last! And our long march almost finished. In chapel we repose in calm dignity Con the front rowsl and feel the weight of the world on our shoulders. This is a year of important eventsw-Oriole,cards, invita- tions, no end of plays and bake salesg last but not least the prized diploma. We fought the election of Roosevelt and Hoover on the floor of' our Senior room, the Democrats coming out victorious, In our own private election We named Mildred Brockmeyer President, Kathleen Hurd Vice-President and DuVal Seagle Secretary and Treasurer. With the help and advice of Mrs. Hall we have succeeded in matters undertaken by the class. The time and patience given to The Oriole by Miss Pugh is not to be overlooked. And all the Seniors feel deeply indebted to our principal and faculty for the help- ful guidance rendered for the last four years. Not all the classmates that started on this journey in '29 are still with us, and we have added new friends each year. Our plans and dates for graduation have been made: Baccalaureate Sermon, May 28thg Senior Class Play, june lstg and Com- mencement, june Znd. This year of '33 is one that will be remembered many years hence. Kate Robinson, '33,

Pa8eTWeHfY Tl-IE ORIOLE . Q9 . , , QgUe1f1zo1f ZCLSS Q-Jyifzsfozfy CHAPTER I E ENTERED our eventful Freshman year with our heads slightly swelled and took the leap from the down stairs up with some of the air of a conqueror. Rat week rolled around, and in this year of '29 the Freshmen had their last Rat parade. After this heart-rending jolt to our delicate pride we calmed down so far as to choose the meek lily of the valley for our class flower. Wfe elected class officers: President, Dick Crockett, Vice-Presiden t, Flora Mae Haislip, Secretary, Nancy Bushong, Treasurer, Alfred Porter. Then we settled down to intensive study and dreamed of the day when we would be Sophomores. CHAPTER II After we completed our long and hard march from Freshmanville to Sopllomoretown we found hfty-two of our marchers were with us. Skirts were a little longer fbutterlly skirts in large numbersj , also bobbed hair was a feature among the girls. Most boys now Wore long trousers. VVe chose our class ofhcers: President, Ernest Lyons, Vice-President, Mary Ellen Wlilliams, Secretary and Treasurer, Aulden Lemons. Again we assumed a very superior air, and took time and particular care to make things rough for the Freshnien. Those first few months passed quickly and we were shocked to hnd examinations so near. After seeing our examination grades we, that is most of us, began some real study, and didn't have much time to be sophisticated. i CHAPTER III XN7e had marched a long way by now and stopped to consider our suc- cesses and failures. Surely we were too far up the road for any turning back or stumbling, even though Geometry, Bookkeeping and other terrors appeared before our bewildered eyes, and some classmates ran around in a panic trying to get twelve units or squeeze in an extra subj ect. After getting thoroughly adjusted to our new position we elected class off1cers:President, Roy Duncan, Vice-President, Frances Coleman, Secretary and Treasurer, Mary Ellen Vtfilliams. Then came the selecting of rings and pins. By March we were all dreaming of being Seniors and practicing how to be dignified.

Page Twenty-two T I-I E O R I Q L E Qiggzass Wvfoplaecy Roanoke, Virginia, june 2, 1943. Dear Mr. Eckman: In response to your letter asking for information regarding the present occupations ofthe Class of '33 l am writing the following: Christo Pack has a controlling interest in the N. B. C. network. Paul Davis and his L'VVonder Boys" broadcast their popular dance programs each Friday and Saturday from Cincinnati, Ohio. Edythe Martin, with her quiet, sweet ways, is managing the Old Ladies' Home in Tampa, Florida. Billy Matheney, the declaimer of '33, is now a promising lawyer in Dublin, Virginia. Each morning at 6:30 Nellie Carrico gives exercises for the early risers which helps produce good dispositions and figures. You will be surprised to learn that Herbert Hall is in New York, instructing the choruses in Ziegfeld's Follies. Yes, Kathleen Hurd is the leading solo dancer. Several of our class turned their talents toward the art of food making. Do you remember the girl who always made our bake sales a roaring success? Nancy Bushong is in Chicago managing a chain of bakery stores. Blanche Aust has charge of the confection- ary department. You undoubtedly have tasted her excellent fudge. Anne Vifallace was located, after quite a bit of searching, in the South Sea Isles, sell- ing Parisian dresses to the natives. Her cunning shop is really quite different from any I have ever seen. Du Val Seagle is organist for St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome. l suppose he has over- come his reluctance to appear in public. Hazel Davis, as you know, is still residing in Pulaski. A brick bungalow and a beautiful flower garden keep her quite busy, but in her leisure hours she turns to poetry. She just completed her outstanding poem, "Conquers the Argonne." Doris James is in a New York beauty shop advertising "Kissproof Lipstick." A sample with each sale. Roy Duncan is chief auctioneer for the Duke Sales Company in San Francisco, Calif. Mittie Nunn is the head dietician at a new institution in Denver, Colorado, which attempts to help the underweight folk to gain. Aulden Lemons still plays havoc with the hearts of the ladies when he gives his week- ly broadcasts. His voice is as vibrant as ever, and he owes a great part of his success to the lovely way in which Mary Ellen XVilliams accompanies him. She has written several of his best l1its. Stuart Blackburn has won fame as a comic strip artist. "Pop-eye" is his specialty. Frances Cummings was recently granted a divorce from her husband, Sherman Hall, in Reno. Unusual as it may seem, an old school mate, Curtis Covey, was the divorce Judge.
