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

PAGE TWENTY-SIX SEASON OF 1938 1939 THE ORIOLE ORIOLE CHIRPS WELL RECEIVED AT P. H. S. SWIMMING TEAM WINS AWARDS AT BLACKSBURG Beginning their second year as an organized swimming team The Goldfish. David Jameson. Captain, began prac- tice in January at Roanoke, under the coaching and leader- ship of Mr. Hensel Eckman. The team participated in on’y two meets, one with V. P. I. freshmen, in which they were beaten, but showed fine performance, the other in the state-wide high school meet at Blacksburg, held March 10 and 1 1, Pulaski winning the cham- pionship in the state class. As a reward for their victory, the te’m received a beautiful tro- phy, to be held for one year. Those winning medals and ’etters were: GOLD John Tate — 220 yard free style. Tate. Ned Bane, Porter Ham and David Jameson — 200 yard relay team. Louis Painters — fancy div- ing. SILVER Jameson (2) — 550 yard breast stroke and 50 yard back stroke. Tate — 100 yard free style. Perkins — diving. BRONZE Tate — 50 yard free style. Painter — 50 yard breast stroke. Jameson, Bane and Perkins — 150 yard medley relay. There were two other teams competing — Jefferson High, Roanoke and Waynesboro High. The score stood: P. H. 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

PAGE TWENTY -EIGHT SEASON OF 1938 1939 THE ORIOLE Bill Dent We couldn ' t have made a better choice than Bill as the best sport in P. H. S. He can take a joke as well as anyone, and laughs heartily at joke on himself. (He also likes to tell one on someone else.) Bill is popular with the boys as well as girls, and is always ready to do his part. Particularly did we see his fine sportsmanship in his role as the sheriff in Lady Spit- fire. Bill is a good sport, and we know he will always be the good sport we have known. BILL DENT MARY STAMBAUGH Best Sport Best Sport Mary Stambaugh Mary is a good sport in two ways. An excellent basketball player, she was captain of the girls’ team this year, and was she a good one! Then she also enjoys a joke on herself and takes part in all good fun. She’s gone to the top in po- pularity, and has a great many friends in P. H. S. We know she will always be able to cooperate as she has done during her journey with us. Mary will always have friends and will always be a good sport throughout her life. SCHOOL CALENDER FOR 1939 Sept. 7 — New students register. Sept. 8 — County Teachers’ meeting. Sept. 9 — Opening day.
