PAGE TWENTY-TWO SEASON + OF 1938 1939 THE ORIOLE ■ — — ; BETA CLUB ORGANIZES On Thursday morning, Feb- ruary 16, the honor students of the Junior and Senior Class- es met for the purpose of orga- nizing a Pulaski chapter of the Nationa’ Honorary Beta Club. Mr. Eckman led a discussion of its purposes and club activi- ties. The following officers were elected: John Tate (Jun- ior) president; Kalima Dalton (Senior) vice-president; Betty Bil ' ig (Junior) secretary, and Grace Hearn (Senior) treasur- er. Pulaski High, as a state ac- credited high school, is eligible and has received its charter for a chapter in the National Beta Club, which is a non-secret scholarship service organization for high school students of America. Its purposes are: “To encourage scholarship, to promote character, and to sti- mulate leadership qualities among its members, " as well as “to cultivate ideals of loyalty courage and honesty among high school students of Ameri- ca. " The membership in the club is limited to those students of the Junior and Senior class- es whose “scholastic standing is sufficiently creditable to in- dicate superior mental qualifica- tion. " However, a student must have the recommendation of the principal of the high school in order to attain membership. The National Council of the Beta Club includes: President, Dr. Sidney B. Hall, who is State Superintendent of Edu- cation in Virginia; vice-presi- dent and comptroller of busi- ness administration at V. P. I., and secretary-treasurer, D r. John W. Harris. Mr. Walter C. Chapman is the official di- rector of Beta Clubs of Vir- ginia. The National Beta Club is in its fifth year of existence. It has grown rapidly since 1933 and now has a total member- ship of over 12,000 in 782 chapters in nine states of the Reading left to right on back row : Henry Albert, Nancy Mitchell, Kalima Dalton, Eliza- beth Adair, Betty Billig, Rebec :a Hillzheimer, Forest Owen, Mr. Eckman. Second row — John Tate, Jack Ward, Miss M Donald, Margaret Owen, Laura Clark, Kathleen Owens, Jo- an Richardson, Garnett Phibbs. Front row — Billy Mumpowet , Betty Jordan, Sarah Lugar, Helen Jackson, Sarah Hudson, Grace Htarn, James Vinson. Union. The first issue of the Beta Club Journal, which is the official magazine of the club, was printed in September 1934. Although the club is a schol- astic organization and not a social one, social activities have a part in its program. The Beta Club is a service and not a high hat organization. The Pulaski chapter is sponsored by Miss Elizabeth McDonald and Mr. Hensel Eckman. As the activity of the year Mr. Chapman suggested that the Pu’aski Chapter of Beta Club visit the Veteran’s Hos- pital, located at Salem, Vir- ginia. On March 23, twenty- two members, accompanied by the advisors, Miss McDonald and Mr. Eckman, and Miss Frances Foster, Mrs. B. F. Adair, and Mrs. Hurst Owen, went to Salem. The Veterans’ hospital is beautiful to behold. The lib- rary, which had just been com- pleted at the time of our visit, was fitted with the latest equipment. The soldiers are fortunate to have a ' ovely game room, a beautiful audi- torium, and moving picture shows at frequent intervals. Of great beauty is the amphi- theatre, where the soldiers, who are able, march daily. Our chapter was treated with the utmost of courtesy and kindness, and was asked to return in 1940, after more buildings will have been com- pleted. The visit was an enjoyable one, and will always be one of our most p’easant memories, j The programs of the year were on Good Manners, and the Origin of Easter, both proving to be most helpful. The last meeting was in the form of an evening party, held at the home of Kalima Dalton. We had a nice chapter, and we a’l were inspired by the meetings. The following is the list of honor students who are eligi- ble for membership: Seniors — Betty Jordan, Jack Ward, Hen- I ry Albert, Ruth Dickerson, | Rebecca Hiltzheimer, Grace j Hearn, Nancy Mitche ' l, Kali- j ma Dalton, Joan Richardson, and Juniors — Billy Mum- power, Shirley Black. Laura Clark, Sarah Hudson, Helen Jackson, Margaret Owen, John Tate, Kath’een Owens, Gar- nett Phibbs. James Vinson, Elizabeth Adair. B tty Billig, Margaret Bunts and Sarah Lu- gar.

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. There was an affirmative and a negative team, each prepared on its side of the question to de- bate against opponents chosen at the meet. The affirmative team, composed o f Garnett Phibbs, John Tate and Ohmer Glee Club HAS PROVEN ASSET Organized in 1936-37 the Girls’ Glee Club of Pulaski Hi has now become one of the most outstanding clubs in the school. This group journeyed to Richmond last spring to en- ter the annual State High School Music Festival. Under the capab’e direction of Mrs. C. C. Carney, these girls re- ceived a rating of excellent for Class B schools. The club has entertained at numerous numbers of gather- ing in Pulaski. They sang for both the baccalaureate and commencement exercises of the Class of ’38, High School and Grade assembly, the High School P. T. A., The Presbyte- rian Church and other engage- ments to be filled later in the year. On April 19, 1939, the group will leave for Richmond to again enter the annual fes- tival. They hope this year to receive a superior rating. This trip tops the activities of the club for the year. Pulaski High School looks with pride upon this club which has proven a great asset to the school and community. Crowell, won over Shoemaker High, but was eliminated in the first round. Although it got another chance to debate, it lost to Radford’s negative team. The negative team, com- posed Henry A’bert.

BOWERS CAPTAIN: HENRY PATTERSON MANAGER: DAN HINSON The 1938-39 football pros- pects, with only four letter men returning and a change in the coaching staff, were not bright at the beginning of the season. However, after much toil and effort both by old and new men, the season became successful. The Orioles opened their season with the strong Blue- field team, and athough they lost, it gave the inexperienced men a good lesson in high class football. P. H. S. tuned up and came through with flying colors in the succeeding games with Dublin, Hillsvile, and Blacks- burg. She slumped in the next three games, lqsing to Nar- rows, Radford, and Saltville, the strongest teams in our sec- tion. Returning to form, the Orioles administered Chris- tiansburg a 26-0 defeat, be- fore a large crowd, inc’uding State Girls’ Hi-Y delegates. All attendance records for foot- ball in Puaski were broken on November 11, when 3,000 or more fans turned out to witness our annual game with Wythe- ville. Both teams were even’y matched and it was a heart breaker for us to lose. P. H. S. closed her ten game schedule with a 14-7 win over the strong Marion team. The boys played their best game of the season, with the seniors leading the way. MEMBERS OF FOOTBALL SQUAD Connie Adams, Ned Bane, Roy Bentley, Russell Cline, Nathan Evens, Howard Gol- den, C. J.
