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

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.

Quesenberry, Stam- j baugh and Wa’lner are in the! Senior class and will not be j with the; team next year, i They have been an asset to the team and their splendid sports- manship wil be greaty missed. 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. Mildred Wallner 20, Isabel Gilmer 16, Janie Via 15. and Virginia Painter 7. making a total of 316 for the season. 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.

S 53 Jefferson 47 Waynesboro . 26 Next year The Goldfish hope to meet many more teams, and with the present team aug- mented by new members, hope to win again. Nothing is easier than fault- finding; no talent, no self-de- nial, no brains, no character are required to set up in the grumbling business. — Robert West On Decmber 22, 1938, the first issue of the Pulaski High School newspaper, “Oriole Chirps,” came off the press. For a long time, the students and faculty had realized that P. H. S. should have a school paper; finally, under the lead- ership of Miss Crysta 1 Frye, a staff was selected and work on the first issue was begun. The original staff was chos- en as follows: Editor-in-Chief, Rebecca Hiltzheimer; Assistant Editor- in-Chief, Betty Billig: Busi- GOLDFISH TEAM John Tate Ned Bane Porter Ham Ohmer Crowell Cooper Perkins T om Massie Louis Painter Sonny Miller Donald Richardson David Jameson, Capt. ness Manager, John Tate; As- sistant Business Manager. Gar- net Phibbs; Literary Editor, Ann Morehead; Society Editor, Ka’ima Dalton; Joke Editor, Billy Mumpower; Sports Edi- tors, Isabel Gilmer and Ed- ward Carney; Advertising Manager, E’izabeth Adair; Class Reporters, Nancy Wor- ley, Senior; Alice Carney, Junior; Louis Painter, Sopho- more: Pauline Gatewood, Freshman Donna Smith and Alec Haller, grades; Sponsor CAPTAIN David Jameson Miss Crysta ' . Frye; Assistant Sponsor Miss Elizabeth Pain- ter. Since then, several chang- es have been made. One issue of “Oriole Chirps” is printed each month of the school year, and the genera’ make up includes: First class news articles, editorials, poems, short stories, various feature articles, jokes, gossip, sports, and ads. While originality is particularly stressed through- out, the foremost objective is to print the news of P. H. S. truthfully in an attractive, as well as interesting manner. Miss Frye has proven a very capable sponsor of the school paper. She has cooperated and stuck with the staff through thick and thin and deserves ail the credit for the splendid way in which she has successfully handled this responsible and progressive undertaking for P. H. S. The cooperation and sup- port of the faculty and especi- ally Mr. Eckman, principal, has been deeply appreciated bv those closely associated with the inside story of printing this reliable newspaper, which is of. for. and by, the students of Pulaski High, and the pres- ent staff sincerely hopes that, as long as the high school re- mains the Oriole Chiros will be an important part of it. It takes a great deal of bold- ness mixed with a vast deal of caution, to acquire a great for- tune; but then it takes ten times as much wit to keep it after you have got it as it took to make it. Mayer A. Rothschild The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one has to do. — James M. Barrie That is a good book, it seems to me. which is opened with expectation and closed with profit. — Louisa M. Alcott Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings. — Samuel Johnson People do not lack strengt h — they lack will. — Victor Hugo
