Few weeks had passed in this last year when we began to realize that
time was not to be wasted. Besides trying to complete enough work for
graduation it automatically fell our task to publish "The Oriole," a task as
well as a pleasure and opportunity to which we have looked forward for three
years, and We knew it meant work to make it a success.
Our first attempt to raise money for this purpose was through the sale
of candy at ball games. Later We received money from entertainments
given by the School, and in December we sponsored a bazaar. Through
these means and the aid of the Junior Class it was possible to raise funds to
publish The Oriole of 1935. The work of The Oriole staff is to be praisedg
each member has worked faithfully and unceasingly for this publication.
Miss Crystal Frye was Sponsorg Cynthia Knapp, Editor-in-Chiefg George
Dewey, Business Managerg Eloise Bowling, Literary Editorg and Ernestine
Seagle, Photographic Editor.
Now that our work is finished it is with regret that we leave Pulaski
High School, and before we go we Wish to express our sincere appreciation
to the faculty through whose untiring efforts We have attained this height.
Elizabeth Summers '35.

N THE early autumn of 1931 one hundred and twenty-live boys
and girls climbed the stairs to the Freshman rooms and proudly
took their seats. It was a noisy crowd, but our class advisors,
Miss Lynnwood Kinder, Miss Laura Dalton and Miss Margaret
Dyer, soon calmed us. When "Rat VVeek" came aroundithe Sophoxnores
gladly Cand unmercifully, we thoughtj put us into our places. After sur-
viving the blows, humiliating to our pride, we settled down to our work and
then elected our class officers, who were: Donald Bane, President, Nancy
Eskridge, Vice-President, James Steger, Secretary and Treasurer.
By the next year sixty-seven of us had become Sophomores and we
were, indeed, a sophisticated group. This year was rather uneventful, as
are all Sophomore years, compared with junior and Senior years. During
this year, however, many of us began to take more prominent places in the
activities of the school. With the aid of Miss Helen Croswhite and Miss
Elizabeth Pugh as class advisors, fifty-eight of us passed one step higher to
the Junior Class.
This year we were divided into two groups, some of us taking the com-
mercial course and others the academic. Although we were in two rooms,
we worked togther as one body and elected for our officers Vtfalter Roberts,
President, Ellen Kate Harman, Vice-President, Nancy Eskridge, Secretary
and Treasurer. It was in this year that we began to look forward with more
hope to our prized diplomas. Under the direction of Miss Elizabeth Blair
and Miss Mildred DuVal we worked more diligently to reach this goal.
On September 8, 1934, we assumed the role of Seniors and tried hard
to fit into our new places with dignity. Again Miss Elizabeth Pugh was
our advisor. Some of our classmates had fallen behind, and at this time we
numbered only forty. Those not with us were greatly missed, several
pupils from other schools had joined us, however, since we started our High
School course. i
It was again time to elect our class officers, and realizing the great
responsibility that would rest upon them, we gave the election a great deal
of thought. The following officers were elected: Nancy Eskridge, Presidentg
Donald Glenn, Vice-Presidentg Frances Hardy, Secretary: and George
Dewey, Treasurer. Throughout the year they have proved by their loyalty
and ability that our election was a Wise one.
