F THE Pulaski High School viewed the arrival of one hundred
and twenty-five new Freshmen with stares of amazement,
we were so filled with importance over being in high school
that we were entirely oblivious of the fact. What seemingly was
an endless line of "rats" was soon divided into three groups, and
we were seenall over the building searching for this or that class.
Many 'of ustook Latin-not because of the importance of the
subject, but because it seemed very superior to say that we were
studying a foreign language, knowing quite well that had it been
Chinese we would have accepted it with the same point of view
and interest. Our class officers were Edward Dent, President,
Henry Morehead, Vice-President, Chester Hall, Secretary-
In spite of our best efforts, some of us became so entangled
in the ways of unfamiliar subjects-to say nothing of the search
for the algebraic "x"-that in the fall of '33 only seventy-six of
us became Sophomores. Again we were divided into two classes
-part of us being under the supervision of Miss Croswhite, the
others under Miss Pugh. Our class officers for this year were
Celia Mumpower, President, Elsie VVade, Vice-President, Walter
Smith, Secretary-Treasurer. Being a Sophomore was not such
an exciting state-it suggested just one more year of work because
the Senior year seemed so far away.
However, when seventy-four of us entered the Junior year
this was the'signal for new interests and enthusiasms. This
marked the half-way point in our high school career, and we
were given our choice of the academic or business courses.
VVhen we became Seniors, it was pleasing to find our class
ranking as the largest in the history of the school. Miss Pugh is
our Advisor, Celia Mumpower, President, Edward Bpwman,
Vice-President, Trinkle Davis, Treasurer, and Patty Vier, Sec-
retary. Few Weeks passed until we began to realize the work to
be done in order to graduate and to publish our annual, The
Oriole-a task as well as a pleasure and an opportunity to which
we have looked forward for three years. To raise money for this
purpose we have done everything from selling pencils and maga-
zines to giving luncheons and a minstrel. With Miss Blair as
Sponsor, Helen Boothe, Editor-in-Chief, and Edward Dent as

Business Manager, we feel that our work has been marked with
success and that The Oriole just issued is a credit to our class.
This, our final year, has been a happy one. We have finished
all the undertakings we started four years ago and have added
to them the final touch of dignity. Our work here is completed
but it all now seems a beautiful, happy memory of four of the
most important years of life, and is our basis for the accomplish-
ment of things hereafter-things even more important for the
glory of the Class of Thirty-six and for our Alma Mater.
My dear Miss Pugh:
Pulaski, Va., june 10, 1946.
I am sending you this group of clippings which I have col-
lected during the past ten years. I hope they will give you ideas
of what our Class of '36 is doing. Some of us have wandered
afar and some have stayed in the old home town. Some have
shot to tremendous heights and others remain the same as we
remember them in high school.
