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.

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. Captain Mary Stambaugh and Peggy Quesenberry were high scorers for the sextet totaling 105 and 128 points respectively. They were fo’- lowed by Ruth Webb with 25 noints.

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.

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.

This initial victory gave the boys untold courage to face the Radford quintet which struggled constantly to defeat the Orioles by a score of 24 to 15. However, this “upset” by Radford did not daunt their spirit. With renewed vim, the P. H. S. cagers met their op- ponents from Narrows in a thrilling game which exempli- fied exce’lent coaching on the t part of both teams. Coming out of this encounter with the marginal score of 23-22, Pu- laski rapidly built up a strong, fast team which equall- ed, if not surpassed the strength of the opposing teams which I followed. The remainder of the season included two wins each over Blacksburg and Marion , one over Bland and Draper, with losses being meted out by Christiansburg twice, Wm. Fleming, Marion, Narrows, and Bland, and tying Draper. The Midgets’ season didn’t prove so successful in winning scores as the Orioles, but they showed much promise for fu- ture seasons. High scorers for the Orioles were: Tester 84 Haislip, R. 71 Bouldin 68 Lambert . . 61 Haislip, C.

I have seen the great green pines Lean to with the breeze, I have seen the calm winds Lift away all the leaves. I have seen the snow fall And cover everything white. But lovlier than all of these Are the stars in the night That shine with a beauty Of freedom and light. Louis Painter — ’41
