PULASKI HOST TO GIRLS’ HI-Y CONFERENCE FIRST TIME IN 10 YEARS For the first time in many years the Girls’ Hi-Y of Pulas- ki High School took the ini- tiative to entertain the delegates of the Virginia State Hi-Y Conference from November 4th to the 6th. The Conference chose as its theme “Youth at the Cross- roads.” as its slogan. “Choose Ye This Day Whom Ye Shall Serve. ' ’ and as its hymn, “Faith of Our Fathers.” Each of the twenty girls who compose the local unit set to work diligently, early in October, to acquire homes for the delegates, and were pleased to donate the large number of people who cooperated by of- fering their homes for use. Ap- proximately 70 homes were used in housing the delegates. We were proud to have the State Hi-Y president. Miss Jean- ne Hall, as a member of our club and it was with poise and self assuredness that she presid- ed over the conference. Other officers were: Mary Jane Sneed, of Charlottesville, vice- president; Mangane Hyde, of Harrisonburg,, Secretary, and Dorothy Childress, of Chris- tiansburg, Treasurer. Many committees were ap- pointed to help systematize the preparation for the conference. Some of these committees were: Registration, transporta- tion, ways and means, enter- taiment, etc. After they had registered, approximately 125 girls were taken to their places of resi- dence by members of the trans- portation committee, members of the Boys’ Hi-Y, and other people of the town who so graciously offered their ser- vices. At seven o’clock, Friday night, November 4th, a buffet supper was held in the base- ment of the First Methodist Church, and after the supper, a “Jolly Up” was enjoyed by the delegates at which time ac- quaintances were made and games were played. At 8:30 o’clock the same night in the auditorium of the church, the Rev. W. H. Bowman, of Wytheville made the opening address. On the following morning the conference resumed with a worship service from 9:30 to 9:45. Discussion groups were led by the Rev. Francis Hume Scott, the Rev. Jesse H. Clay, Dr. McLedge Moffett, of Rad- ford State Teachers’ College Radford. Va.. and Dr. Vernon P. Bodier, of Blacksburg. Va. From 3:00 to 5:30 Satur- day afternoon. Miss Betty Jor- dan, president of the local club, entertained with a tea at her home. A banquet was held at the Apnalachian assembly room at 7:30 for the delegates at which time J. C. Ingram , secretary of Stare Hi-Ys. was speaker. Following this the Boys’ Hi-Y entertained with a most en joyable dance. The Boys’ Hi- Y cooperated in every way to help make the conference a suc- cess. The Hi-Y Gifls met in a body on the steps of the High School for a group picture Sun- day morning and from there attended the First Methodist Church where the services were conducted by the Rev. Foye G. Gibson. At the business session held Sunday morning, officers elect- ed for the coming year were: Mary Jane Sneed. Charlottes- ville, president: Sarah Lugar, Pulaski, vice-president: Doris Painter, Rural Retreat, secre- tary, and Martha Todd. Mari- on, treasurer. Mrs. Carson Dalton, spon- sor spent untold hours of work on the conference, and any- thing that could be said would be inadequate in expressing her worth to the Hi-Y, for without Mrs. Dalton, this conference could never have been. The girls feel fortunate in having Mrs. Dalton as their sponsor, and are very grateful for her cooperation.

This being the first time in ten years that Pulaski had been host to the confer- ence. The scene of this auspicious occasion was the spacious Elks ' Club, appropriately deco- rated in the club colors, red white, and blue. Enhanced by the varied colored gowns of the girls, the spectacle was en- tirely glamorous. Miss Jeanne Hall, outgoing state president, was becomingly gowned in maroon velvet and wore a shoulder corsage of Talisman roses. Miss Hall is to be congratulated on her successful term as state presi- dent. She executed her duties faithfully and diligently, win- ning much favorable comment and praise for the charming manner with which she under- Bcluoxd ActuUti i With A Punch!-- took and performed the most difficult tasks. Miss Betty Jordan, presi- dent of the focal club, was at- tractively attired in a fovely gown of turquoise and wore a shoulder corsage of Talisman roses. Miss Jordan, too, has proven very successful in her role as president. Several fine projects have been completed because of her splendid leader- ship and executive ability. Dainty refreshments con- sisting of punch, cookies, and ice cream, were served through- out the evening — the punch bowl proving the most popu- lar center. Dancing was enjoyed by ap- proximately 150 guests and friends from ten to twelve, with the music furnished by the Southwest Virginians, who were ably directed by Bob Wallace, one of the founders of the orchestra.

This was the first time in ten years Pulaski has had the pleas- ure of entertaining and being host to the conference. For this noteworthy occas- ion the Elks’ Club very graci- ously donated its hall which was most attractively and effec- tively decorated in the Hi-Y colors, red, white and blue. Guests were received and welcomed by Miss Jeanne Hall, state president, Miss Betty Jor- dan, local president, and Mrs. Carson Dalton, sponsor. They were then directed to a beauti- fully decorated table where Miss Isabel Gilmer, gowned in a becoming creation of red crepe, ladled punch. Miss Gil- mer was assisted by a commit- tee of local Hi-Y girls.
