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.

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.

PAGE TWENTY-FOUR SEASON OF 1938 1939 THE ORIOLE GIRLS’ BASKETBALL TEAM FINISHES GOOD SEASON The Girls’ Basketball team began a good season this year when they defeated Draper High in an exciting contest. Journeying to Radford, the girls were in high spirits and were hopeful of a victory, but much to everyone’s disappoint- ment no victory was in store for them. However, they re- deemed themselves in the next encounter, which was with the strong Narrows sextet, by de- feating them 24-23. In B ' acksburg, they again won the laurels when they de- feated the Blacksburg Girls 38-36. It seemed the “Ivory of fate’’ that Christiansburg, the next opponent, conquered the P. H. S. girls in a one-sided score of 33-12, which was ev- ened up in a few days by a 23-13 win over Marion. In the remaining nine en- counters the P. H. S. cagers marked up four losses and four wins, with one tie. Even though the opponents scores totaled more than P. H. S. the season is considered a very successful one. The girls are all credited with p’aying good, clean basketball, which has, proven one of the finest high school spirits. The members of the team, with the exception of two, have played together for two CAPTAIN Mary Stambaugh Front row — left to right — Alice Carney, Elizabeth Adair, Peggy Quesenberry, Mary Stam- baugh, Captain; Sarah Lugar, Dorothy Leach e, Ruth Webb, Dorothy Gilmer.

However, there is a great deal of p -om ' s : ng material in store for the coming season which is being awaited with eager ex- pectation.

WORK Do your work — not just your work and no more, but a litt’e more for the lavishing’s sake; that little more which is worth all the rest. And if you suffer as you must, and if you doubt as you must, do your work. Put your heart into it and the sky will clear. Then out of your very doubt and suffering will be born the su- preme joy of your life.
