THE ORIOLE VOLUME XVIII SEASON 1938-39 PULASKI HIGH ORIOLE BREAKS THE NEWS ! ! ! For First Time The Oriole Uses Ideas As Seen In Daily Press. It was the plan of the staff to reduce the size of the Oriole this year. But in so doing we feel we have not lowered the standard of former Orioles, but inaugurated a policy whereby the continuation of the Oriole may be more hopefully antici- pated by succeeding classes. We wished also, to choose a new type or style of book that would be interesting to every student. One main motive was to portray the most cherish- ed happiness so that all the students might look back with pleasure. In order to fulfill this plan just mentioned, two things were done. We chose to make this book on the order of the most widely read and followed type of reading today which is the newspaper. As is known, there is some part of a news- paper to interest every individ- ual. Some look first for the sports page, others, the reports of their clubs, and still others, the front page news. So in the Oriole this year one can find easily that which most inter- ests him. And the second thing was to put more emphasis on pictures. The outstanding feature of any newspaper is the pictures, and it was our idea to bring the school life closer to the students by the pictures which w e have used. In this book there are many good pictures, contributed by the students, which should be of interest to everyone, and which cover the scholastic and social activities of the year. Staff Takes Pleasure In Presenting 1939 Oriole In Three Sections. ORIOLE STAFF DECIDES PLAN-- At their first meeting, the Class, working together, have Oriole Staff decided to change produced a great book, and the the Oriole in order to make it Staff wishes to express its ap- less expensive, and much more interesting. Using the newspaper as their model, they carefully shaped and p’anned the Oriole in accordance with the news- paper. Because a newspaper has many pitures. the Staff spon- sored a snapshot contest, in which any student of the school could participate, enter- ing any picture of school life or school activity. The Staff was very disappointed, howev- er, at the lack of interest that was shown. Few pictures were entered, and they wish to high- ly commend all those students who tried and did enter pictures, ev- en though they couldn’t be used. It will be noticed that this Oriole has been divided into sec- tions, such as sports, news and society, there b y foil owing the newspaper model. The Staff and the entire Senior preciation for the cooperation it has received in planning and producing the Oriole of 1939. The Staff was pleased to know that an Oriole would be produced this year, for a year has passed since the last Ori- ole was printed. Thereby we have set a precedent, although we have kept the name of the Oriole, because of its signifi- cance, representing the school colors. We felt that the chang- ing of the book was enough and that the name could not be changed. The Senior Class felt that it would do its best if we could only have the Oriole this year. The Staff was elected, and we started work to produce an an- nual entirely dif- ferent. and one of more interest to the entire school. We have produced the Oriole, and we feel that it sur- passes all previ- ous Orioles. This Oriole has been in our minds for quite a time. For the past four years we have worked and planned. Then, this year, we entered the Senior Class ready to work, and to give our time to make this the best pro- duction that there has ever been. We ' ve enjoyed every mo- ment of work, and we feel that we have done our best to pro- duce a book that will be of in- terest to each and every one of our readers. Since each indi- vidual has a favorite topic, or subject, which he prefers to read, we have divided this Ori- ole in that form. To do so. we selected the style of a news- paper, since that contains sports, news, society, and pic- tures. And we wish to point out that these pictures were taken by members of the student body, of other students in P. H. S., for the Oriole. We realize that each of us can look at these pictures, years from now and be carried back to the joyful days when we were Sen- iors, and working hard on this book. We ' ve had to work, and we ' ve had a rough time, but with every member of the staff helping, we’ve seen bits of sun- shine, even in the darkest moments. The staff takes pleasure in presenting the News Section, the Sports Section, the Picture Secion of the Newspaper Edi- ion of the Oriole, ’39. We’re proud of Our Book, and we are sure you will enjoy reading it as much as we have enjoyed making it. Long live the Ori- ole!
