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

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

II « I I I f » c Jl « c t I I I I c r f « t i i FEATURES SECTION FEATURES ★ ¥ SECTION ADVERTISEMENTS THE ORIOLE THREE VOLUME XVIII SEASON 1938-39 PAGE TWENTY-SEVEN POPULARITY POLL HELD On April 1 0, the Oriole Staff asked each person in High School to select some High School student to represent the following in the Oriole: Great- est asset, boy; greatest asset, girl; handsomest boy; pretti- est girl; best sport, boy; best sport, girl. In view of the fact that we had just selected our princess for the Dogwood Festival, we agreed to let that girl be our choice for prettiest girl. To be counted in the asset were the boy and girl who had been of the greatest help to the school, in grades, personality, and leadership. The best sport was not es- pecially in the athletic field of sports, but a well-rounded person who had helped us in every way, and deserved much credit for his work. The result of the poll is as follows: HENRY ALBERT Greatest Asset KALIMA DALTON Prettiest Greatest asset — boy — Henry Lee Albert; Girl — Betty Lou- ise Jordan. Handsomest boy — Tom Painter. Prettiest girl — K a 1 i m a Dalton. Best Sport— boy— Bill Dent: girl — Mary Stambaugh. To give you an idea of their popularity in that certain field, the following paragraphs describe them. Henry Lee Albert The best asset that any school can have is the boy who TOM PAINTER Handsomest studies as Henry has studied, and participates in all acts and serves as a leader, successfully, as Henry has certainly done. Just to know Henry has been a privilege, and his friend- ship has meant much to every- one. His good grades have ev- er inspired us to greater heights. Henry, may you always be such an asset in every walk of life. Kalima Dalton “Chime’s’ ' so pretty, so sweet, and so precious to all of us that we couldn’t resist mak- ing her “Miss Pulaski High.” With her blue eyes, her light brown hair, and her repu- tation for being a very well- dressed girl, we know that no person could better represent the Pulaski High School than she, for beautiful things re- quire beautiful persons. “Chime,” always remain as sweet and as pretty and as un- affected as you are now. Thomas Painter Tom’s blue eyes and brown hair won him the almost un- animous vote of every person in the High School. His good looks and sunny smile won him so many friends that we don’t wonder that he was vot- ed the most hadsome boy in the school. May he ever be as handsome. Betty Louise Jordan Betty’s sweet personality and well-rounded life have made her a most valuable girl to the Senior Class, and to the school. To the girls she’s been a great help, and we think the boys agree with us that she’s a big asset to them, too. Betty knows how highly we think of her, and we know she ' ll go as high as possible in life. BETTY JORDAN Greatest Asset We look before and after, And pine for what is not : Our sincerest laughter With some pain is fraught; Out sweetest songs ace those that tell of saddest thought. By Shelley
