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.

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

THE ORIOLE SEASON OF 1938 1939 PAGE TWENTY-NINE i « | « i I ( t i t « » | » i ! ' « i, Ji t t How To Enjoy Y ourself In Snowy Weather — By Betty Jordan “Old Man Winter” is always welcome to me. He can bring on the snow and ice, the frost- ed window panes, the silvery icicles and all, the more the better. What a thrill to wake after a snug sleep on a winter’s night to open your eyes on the prettiest scene nature ever ar- ranged! Every tree bent low with lovely white snow not a footprint to be seen in all that beautiful blanket. It’s hard to get up even with such enticement as that beau- tiful scene and the smell of a good hot breakfast floating up the stairs. But you put on your breakfast smile, for to- day’s a holiday and count one- two-three — O-oh! The floor’s too cold. But, oh, how grand and warm you feel when you’re all dressed and eating breakfast. After breakfast oil your boots, hunt out your heavy knickers, put on your scarf and toboggan, for you have to be mannish even though you are a girl, to have fun in snowy weather. Wheel What a thrill to swoop from the top of the hill, over the dip, and away like “greased lightning.” Aren’t you glad you have the fastest sled on the hill and aren’t you glad we have this bi’l that ends in a field instead of being worried about traffic? Flying down the hill your stomach doing funny turns, snow in your eyes, wind in your ears, laughing all the while, you couldn ' t wish for more fun! A day is not enough and how could you get enough of such fun that makes you “feel like a million,,” and boy! Do you eat. WAVERITE BEAUTY SHOPPE Phone 4 WASHINGTON AVENUE Ground Location INTERVIEW . . ★ — By Betty Jordan There was mother calling again. Couldn’t she under stand that you had to look your best when interviewed by such an important man as Rodney Blake. “Com-i-n-g. I don’t want any breakfast Muh! (I’m too excited to eat anything! And I hate oatmeal.) After bolting down such a A huge friendly bonfire that lights up the hill, and laugh- ter and cheers that ring out of the clear coldness, make night sledding more fun than that in the daytime. Then too, the gang doesn’t really mind if you ask them to gather around the fire at home and have hot choco’ate and cookies. These are only a few of the many pleasures of snowy weather. Try them. I will guarantee that you will neith- er forget it nor regret it. Compliments of PULASKI LUMBER COMPANY lot of “horrid” oatmeal, not without complaint, Debby flew out the front door with one arm in her coat, and her beret, like a large green pan- cake, right on top of her head. Seeing Tom Morrison whom she considered velry young and very silly coming down the street, she came to an abrupt halt at the gate. Quick- ly she put on her beret and mi- raculously, got the other arm in her coat before he saw her. Honestly he was so young, on- ly eighteen. Why, you couldn’t compare him with such a handsome man as Rodney Blake. “Hi gal. How’s the star re- porter? The Alma Mater couldn’t do without her.” This was told to a saucy robin on a nearby tree. “Humph! You just wait. You’ll see what they say at school when I bring in my in- terview with Rodney Blake, the explorer!” School was very boring and the hands of the clock on the by. Debby was the first one out at the sound of the dismissal bell. She called a taxi and was soon in the elevator of Hotel Winston. Her heart was beat- ing like the well known trip- hammer as the floors whizzed wall seemed to be glued. Her hand trembled so much when she knocked on the shiny 700 that she had to knock twice to be heat’d. The door opened to reveal a short, but a very angry little man. “Is — is Rod — I mean, Mr. Blake in at present?” “Wait a minute,” he frown- ed back. Gosh, were all secretaries as rude as this one? Before she could take a deep breath necessary to face what was to come, she was ushered swiftly into a huge room and seated in a chair that made her look like a little girl. Some fifteen minutes of dreadful suspense has passed when, from a door at the side of the room, came a tall, stout, bulbous-nosed, middle aged man. As soon as he had enter- ed, the short, fat man, who had been standing like a sen- try beside the door, left the room. Debby was too disappoint- ed to speak. “Wie gehts, Fraulein.” “Huh — I mean — uh — what did you say?” Then the man began speak- ing so rapidly what was evi- dently German that Debby fled in bewilderment. The elevator was much too slow so she chose the stairs which she fairly flew down. Just as she slowed down to walk out the door with what little dignity she had left, someone called. “Hy gal. What’d he say?” She panted, “Oh-Oh-Tom! he-he was-gulp — a horrid, fat, old man — who talked — wh- like — a-a pig grunts I — think — it was German. But don’t you dare tell a soul!” On the front page of the school newspaper next day ap- peared this small notice. “Rodney Blake had no statement to make to our pa- per Tom Morrison (Ed.)
