THE ORIOLE Page Nineteen After three months of rest and forgetfulness we returned to work, to take up the responsibilities of Seniors and to try hard to be dignified. Al- though our class is now less than half the size of the original one, we made up for this by persistent efforts. The 1934 Oriole is published with Lucille Rhudy, Editor-in-Chief; Chester Palmer, Business Manager; and Miss Dyer, Sponsor. We feel justly proud of the staff for turning out this book. And now our work is over, diplomas are received, and with a smile and a tear for the days of joy and companionship that are over we leave the school to the Class of ’35. Carl Lewey, ' 34.

Page Eighteen THE ORIOLE Senior Glass dKittory September 8, 1930, ninety-five healthy and noisy young Indians swarmed up the stairs of P. H. S. and proudly took possession of the freshman rooms. Our shouts of joy at this triumph were soon silenced by the trials of Latin, algebra and science and the cheerful comments of the Sophomores concerning Rat Week. On this great occasion the more talented members of the class, on encouragement from the Sophomores, delighted the audience with their singing and danc- ing. After regaining our composure we settled down to the task of col- lecting four units with as little work as possible. The four units being acquired most of us moved up to the second year and theoretically left behind us all childish pranks and became dignified young ladies and gentlemen. During this year we added to the class roll the names of Milton Brockmeyer, a budding Rubinoff, and Chester Palmer, who is also a violinist although few people know it. Chester has proved invaluable in keeping the class in high spirits, not to mention his work in football and basketball. About this time some of the more distinguished boys of the class became convinced of their importance, and desiring to impress this upon posterity, made a list of their names on the ceiling of the balcony where they can be seen today. On starting our J unior year we were faced with the problem of deciding whether to take the business or the scientific course. After numerous con- ferences with the harassed Mr. Eckman, each of us chose what seemed to him the lesser of the two evils and some of us entered the struggle against bookkeeping and shorthand while others braved the fields of geometry and physics. At this time Elsie Rogers joined us and entered into the common cause. During this year it became increasingly evident that we had in our midst a number of very talented musicians and orators and several first- class athletes. In a surprisingly short time final exams were upon us; we passed- we were Seniors!

Page Twenty THE ORIOLE !£ast c Will and Testament lAL E, the Senior Class of 1934, since we are convinced of the fact that we will no longer he pupils of P. H. S., and cannot take away all our real and personal property, do hereby be- queath to the oncoming classes the following items and privileges: To the Faculty we leave the following items: To our principal, Mr. Eckman, we leave our best wishes (and also sym- pathy) for success with the Seniors of next year. To our beloved Mrs. Hall we leave our admiration for her as the perfect English teacher. To Miss Pugh we leave a new device w ' hich she can fit on her grade book. This device will enable the book to be carried back and forth at noon without any trouble whatsoever. To Miss Frye we leave a new edition of Shakespeare, so she can have something for tardy pupils to memorize after school. To Miss DuVal we leave a rat trap and the necessary bait, to catch the Juniors as they make one of their frequent raids on the Senior’s typewriting paper. To Miss Blair we leave a class that will not mar the beauty of the school by hanging out of the windows at noon. To Mr. Ingles we leave a private secretary, who can do his writing on the board in chapel. To Miss Croswhite we leave an entirely new specimen of the potato bug raised in Pulaski County to show to her biology pupils. To Miss Dyer we leave a perfect microphone for the radio broadcast next year. To Miss Kinder we leave a new edition ol Caesar which she can read to the Freshmen. To Miss Dalton we leave a new set of apparatus for chemistry class, but we advise that the old ones be used as long as possible. And the members of the class leave the following personal items and privileges : Louis Vaughan and Sherman Hall regretfully leave their privilege of strolling into English class at 10:30 to Conley Albert and Sophia Wallace.
