THE ORIOLE Page Twenty-three Class Prophecy ERE IT IS 1954 and twenty years have gone by since our Class of ’34 graduated. Having been the Class Prophet of that year, I decided to look up all my old school mates and see how they have come along. By now our Gem City has grown to gigantic proportions and can be compared toalarge wheel with Dublin as the hub and as its suburbs, Wurno, Dublin and Radford, which, although really part of Pulaski, still go under their former names.

By the way, the Times now has the widest circulation of any newspaper in the State. Well, here are the clippings: New York City (Special)- Robert Bocock, well known radio manufactur- er, has just been elected President of the National Broadcasting Company. Mr. Bocock is a graduate of Pulaski High School, Virginia, and has reached his high position by constant work. One of the featured stars of this net- work is Sherman Hall, who has recently replaced Bing Crosby and Rudy Yallee as radio’s most popular crooner. Mr. Hall’s program is sponsored by the Dunlop Tire Company, of which Mr. Woodrow Davis is the President. Wurno, Va. — Misses Dorothy Powell and Opal McCall report great success in their Department of Home Eco- nomics at the University of Wurno. Greensboro, N.

LOCAL ITEMS Dr. Brocktneyer, local dentist, has just announced the completion of his private chemical laboratory, located be- neath the building of the Dix-Brock- meyer Wholesale Dry Goods Co. Carl Lewey, District Manager of the Kroger Grocery Co., was a visitor in the city yesterday. He was a guest at the home of the former Genoa King, who, several years ago, settled down with a local minister. The Strauss Dairies, owned and oper- ated by Margaret Strauss, recently won a prize for their good products. Pulaski. — Mary Ellen Umberger, owner of the Umberger Department Stores of Chicago, New York, Phila- delphia, and Boston, as well as Pulaski, today announced a special introductory offer on a machine invented to scratch backs. The machine was created by Margaret Bane, who says that she often wished for such an instrument while attending school at P. H. S.
