V Pulaski High School boasts this year of one of the largest Junior Classes ever enrolled in y the school. At present there are eighty-four members. It is ' deeply regretted that several members have had to drop out, but it is hoped they will not be permanently out of school.

History of the Class of ' 39 as Written by Nancy Mitchell to Former Student of Pulas- ki High. Dear Judy: It is indeed a privilege for me to have the pleasure of writing the history of our Sen- ior Class for you. I was more than thrilled when you asked me to do it. And here it is, or at least, as much as I can re- member. You may have to check up on me sometimes, Judy, for you know I have a mighty poor memory. I imagine the three room teachers, in our Freshman year. Miss Dalton, Miss Bon- durant, and Miss Frye, thought we wejre making a great beginning, for we had 137 members. Our teachers were very patient with us, but I still don’t see how they stood it. We had only four subjects, and two blessed study halls! Remember? We didn’t study very much, either, and perhaps that was our fatal move. Only 78 of us were divided between Miss Kinder and Miss Croswhite, in our next year. We still didn’t study, and we had a very hard time. Tres- sa Peters came to us from Pear- isburg, and we welcomed her with open arms. She’s added much encouragement to this class. Then 64 Juniors went to Miss Blair for French and to Miss Gardner for the commer- cial course. It ended with both classes being very small. Last year we had four more stud- ents to join us — Anne Cruise, from Hillsville; Ercel Ryan, from Woodlawn; Nick Ogles- by, from Draper, and Ernest Tolley from Radford. They have certainly done a great deal to make the journey easier and more pleasant. But the sad part came, dear Judy, when we found we would have to give you up. It was a sad, sad time. But we did survive until this year, when 50 came into Miss McDonald’s room. And I’m sure you would like her, for she is a darling. Besides our new teacher, we had two new students — Joan- ne Richardson, from Eggles- ton, and Sarah Elizabeth Ever- ett, of Bluefield. West Virginia, joined us. And Judy, we had three post - graduate students with us — Tom Painter, of Draper; Ruth Martin, of Gary, W. Va., and Helen Walker, John’s wife. We en- joyed having these students for they helped us a lot. We only wish that they could have started in high school with us. We lost a student, Thelma Parks, and how she was miss- ed! Our class officers were; Henry Lee Albert, our capable president, who worked right along with us; Donald More- head, vice-president, whom we couldn’t have done without; Audrey Williams, who was a most efficient secretary, and Arnold Lester, the treasurer, proved himself to be a very fine financier. Dan Hinson was our very able reporter. We are proud to say that the Editor-in-chief of the Ori- ole-Chirps,” our school news- paper, was Rebecca Hiltzheim- er, and she really made it a suc- cess. Last came our crowning glory — The Orio’e! We had to work. We had candy sales, a “Grand Ole Opry,” and a snap-shot contest, and we couldn’t have done it without Continued in 3rd Section, Page 33 FAREWELL The ship of life sails onward. Few clouds across the sky. And another group takes passage At the port, Pulaski High. Their high school days are over; On the topmost decks they stand. Gazing eagerly into the future As a not far distant land. A tear unwillingly dims our eye As we watch them cross the line; But we smile and say, “Bon Voyage” To the class of ’39. —Billig ’40 «
