The boys were very ably led by the captain of football team, Henry Patterson. Vice Presi- dent’s office was held by Wel- don Amburn and the secre- tary and treasurer was Louis Painter. Their year was begun by having a “Beauty Con- test” in which the boys dress- ed as girls and the girls as boys. Then came a “Wo- manless wedding,” and final- ly a dance, to which both Hi- Y Clubs, the Girls’ Mono- gram Club, Senior Class, and both basketball teams were invited. All of these furnish- ed much enjoyment to the student body. The boys had their initiation and welcomed the swimming team into their club. The members being Da- vid Jamison, Captain; Coop- er Perkins, and Porter Ham. The other members of the swimming team were already members of the Monogram club. The Girls, though not as large a club, have been very active also. The president of the club was Mary Stam- baugh, who was very ably as- sisted by Vice-President Isabel Gilmer, Secretary Ruth Webb and a very efficient treasurer, Sarah Lugar. A dance was given at the first of year with music by “The Southwest Vrginians.” Later, an Ama- teur Hour was given in order to place the Girls’ basketball team and Monogram Club’s pictures in the “Oriole”. An- other benefit was given to pay for the basketball mono- grams, and last but not least a dance was given as a final “salute,” so to speak, as sever- al members were seniors, and to welcome into the club, af- ter initiations, new members who were Mildred Wallner, Dorothy Leache and Virginia Painter. The Boys’ Mono- gram Club and both basket- ball teams were invited. Thus ends the social year of the Monogram Club.

THE ORIOLE SEASON + OF 1938 1939 Jf PAGE NINETEEN I ' ► t (I I | IT’S THE AHIMAL IM ME . . —by SARAH LUGAR — A THRILLING MURDER MYSTERY- “Th-th-tbere’s a burglar in the house,” stammered Nell. “In the room upstairs!” she shrieked to Henry, her older brother. Henry and Nell Henderson were staying at the home of their uncle in the country for the week-end while he ha’d gone to San Diego on business, and they were alone in the house when Nell made the startling exclamation. “Did I hear you say burg- lar?” asked Henry. “Why, Nell Henderson, you can’t scare me. What do you think this is, ‘The Haunted House’?” ‘And the tempest roared, the lighten- ing flashed, and the sound of a woman’s shrill cry was heard along the shore,” quoted Hen- ry from a mystery novel he had just read. “Aw, go on Henry, cut the comedy. This is no time for MY ORIOLE This book of mine will always be. The nearest thing to you and me; In years to come, when school is gone. And I am old, and things seem wrong. Til open this book, and turn the page; That’ll comfort me in my old age. I’ll see myself when I was your bright remarks. If that’s your epitaph. I’ll see that it is inscribed, but right now, will you please be serious. There’s something moving around in the room overhead. I heard it tipping across the floor. Grab your flashlight and follow ft me. “Yes, ‘Madame Queen,’ he chirped. As you wish.” Just then the two stopped still in their tracks at the sound of scuffling on the Boor above. “O-oh-Henry, I’m afraid to go up there. It-it s-sounds like there may be m-m-more than one. Maybe we’d better call for help.” ‘Oh, Nell, just climb down off your high horse,’ command- ed Henry. “Nothing’s going to hurt you. Go on up the step and I’M follow behind you. Ladies first, you know.” She stepped on the first step of the stairs, and as she did so, it creaked loudly, sending her into what almost seemed like pered, handing him the flash- light and pushing him for- ward. “Oh, allright,” he said and boldly started toward the door. Bang ! ! ! Yeow ! ! ! “Eeh,” shrieked Nell . “Wha’s that? Sounded like somebody’s shot. We’d better run.” Henry listened intently for a brief moment. Then feeling very brave, he said. “Come on. Follow me and we’ll go in and investigate, or my name isn’t Henry Henderson.” So saying, he grasped Nell’s hand tightly and started for the door again. “S-s-s-h! Not a word. When I open the door you push the button and turn on the lights and we’ll catch them single- handed.” young. And recall things that I have done. I’ll see the boys and girls I knew And tell some stories of what we’d do; Then I’ll close this book of gold And pack it with my tokens old. Louis Painter ’41 a convulsion to Henry. “Proceed — ‘Sister Connie’ — it’s only the step and it won’t bite.” She started up on the steps, and with a great deal of ner- vous effort she reached the head of the stairs. “It’s — it’s in this room,” said Nel “I see a light under the door.” “That’s no light shining un- der the door ‘Ellegance’, that’s your own flashlight that you’re holding in your hand,” scoffed Henry. “You go in first,” she wbis- He turned the knob noise- lessly and then Crash! Bang! “Oops.” said Henry, “What was that?” and fell, but pro- ceed ‘Prince Charming’ you aren’t afraid,” she scoffed. Reaching around the side of the door, she snitched on the lights. And there in the middle of the floor was. murder in cold blood — the cat was having a feast at the expense of a poor little mouse. A S ieam 9 At 7 Jie ft! ACfUt — by Sarah Hudson The night was black with that peculiar sort of darkness which seems almost tangib ' e. Black clouds, sullen and threatening, scuttled across the sky. Lightning slashed the somber heavens, casting an eerie g’ow over the landscape. The air was sultry and calm — the very universe appeared to be holding its breath. As I brought my old dilapidated car to a standstill before the palati- al mansion of my intimate friend, Dr. Wayne, the trees looming out of the darkness like ghostly sentinels of the night, began to sway and moan. I stepped from the car, and as if that were a signal, rain began pouring down in sheets, drenching me to the skin. Gaining the shelter of the portico, I looked back, and in a momentary blue - white flash of lightning, I saw that a huge oak had been struck down, completely blocking the one road to the village be’ow. I entered the drawing room. Hickory wood burned in an en- ormous fireplace with a weird blue flame. The only other in- habitant of this singular room was a huge sab’e cat, who arched his back and unsheath- ed his sharp claws when I ap- proached. Suddenly a piercing scream slashed the silence, echo- ing through the dim corridors. I felt a chill touch my spine. My feet seemed rooted to the f’oor. Again came that ghast- ly scream. Was my friend in peril — perhaps already dead? I rushed into the hall and raced up the stairway. Another pene- trating scream came through the panels of a door at my right, cutting through the hard wood like a keen-edged knife. Quick’y I flung open the door, and there, illuminated by the eerie white fire of lightning. I saw. . Dr. Wayne’s parrot.

THE ORIOLE SEASON OF ★ 1938 ★ 1939 + PAGE TWENTY-ONE UP-HILL Does the road wind up-hill all the way ? Yes, to the very end. Will the day ' s journey take the whole long day? From morn till night, my friend. But is there for the night a resting place? A roof when the slow dark hours begin. May not the darkness hide it from my face? You can ' t miss that inn. Shall I meet other wayfarers at night? Those who have gone before. Then must I knock, or call when just in sight? They will not keep you standing at that door. Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak? Of labor you shall find the sum.- Will there be beds for me and all who seek? Yea, beds for all who come. — by Christina G.

For the purpose of organizing, the group held their first meet- ing and elected the following officers: John Tate, president: Garnett Phibbs, vice- presi- dent, and Nichol Eskridge, sec- retary-treasurer. The first debate presented to the student body was on the question, “R e s o 1 v e d, that Chain Stores Should be Abol- ished for the Good of the Pub- lic.” Those serving on the af- firmative team were Gera’dine Millirons, John Tate, and Bet- ty Billig. The decision went to the negative team, which in- cluded Garnett Phibbs, Frances Cale and J. C. Leffew. The next debate was com- posed of Seniors on the state subject, “Resolved, that the United States Should Establish An Alliance With Great Brit- ain.” The affirmative team was composed of Richard Ward, Nathan Evans, and Nancy Mitchell. The negative won the debate, with Henry Albert, Betty Jordan, and Ruth Dickerson, as speakers. A few weeks later, the Freshmen prepared a debate on the question, “Resolved, That Winter Sports Are More Desir- able Than Are Summer Sports.” Affirmative speakers were DeWitt Creger and Nich- ol Eskridge, who took two speeches, bcause of Jack Scott’s absence. The negative team. Jack Caldwell, Louis Painter, and Ohmer Crowell, captured the decision. In early April, the club pick- ed representative teams to par- ticipate in the District Class B meet at Gate City, Virginia.
