‘ THE ORIOLE SEASON OF 1938 1939 PAGE THREE PRINCIPAL SPONSOR Miss Elizabeth Blair Miss Blair has truly been a friend in deed — a friend in need. Through all our trials in producing an Ori- ole of which w e coul ' d b e j, proud, she has helped us and done much more than her part. She has always made us feel that we could come to her with our problems and that she would help us solve them. Ev- er patient with us through all our mistakes we made, Miss Blair has meant more tc ' us than we have shown and, per- haps realized. We want to thank her now for what she has been to us and done for us. All in all — Miss Blair’s a peach. THE FACULTY Many times in life we meet with things that are so nice that words just can’t express our appreciation f.o r them This is the way we feel about our faculty, and the efforts they have put forth for our benefit. Through their work and sacrifice for us we have achieved what education we now have, and many thanks to them for their fine work. When clouds are hanging low and we are left groping in the dark, our faculty has al- ways managed to see through the mist and find a bright side for us. Such personalities as por- trayed by our faculty are not found in every school. We feel fortunate that we can boast of such a splendid faculty and principal. We seniors greatly appreciate the privilege of having as our principal Mr. Eckman, a man well fitted for the leadership of young people. Having an inter- est in young people, Mr. Eck- man, through his work with them has developed a great un- derstanding of the needs and problems of the student. He is ever ready to extend a guiding hand to all and to mani- fest sympathy for their desires and an infinite patience with them in their mistakes and shortcomings. As we leave our Alma Ma- ter and assume our places in the world we shall long remember our happy associations with him and ever strive toward those goals set for us by his no- ble example and precept. Mr. Hensel Eckman COACH Mr. Bowers came to us from Chilhowie, Virginia where he had coached for the past two years with great success. Mr. Bowers has a well round- ed eduation, having attended three different Universities prior to his graduating from Emory and Henry College in ’36. This versatile fellow pos- sesses a great amount of ingenu- ity and initiative and a fight- ing heart that never knows de- feat. His ability to adapt himself to all circumstances and his willingness to cooperate have given him a permanent pl ace in our hearts. Mr. Warren Bowers DEDICATION Behind each of us there is a sweet influence like flowers, which lightens all our darker hours — it is the influence of Our Mothers — these pages are set apart to honor them. The Oriole is lovingly dedicated to Our Mothers SENIOR TEACHER Miss Margaret E. McDonald Miss Margaret Elizabeth McDonald came to us from Roanoke, and we now think of her as one of us. She has a rare sense of humor, is modest in demeanor, and is pleasing in personality. Miss “Me” is sin- gularly gifted as a teacher in English. Nothing daunts her, and she is endowed with the ability to lead others. Alert, well poised, and ready for any emergency, she’s made a de- lightful teacher. Seniors have gladly followed her guidance and under her leadership the work of the Senior Class has been built and strengthened. Her quiet, steadfast faith in days of trial has been a bene- diction to us. Not one to be satisfied with doing any work halfway, she is somehow able to transmit this admirable trait to others to inspire them to greater achievements. Verily Miss “Me.” worketh with her hands and her heart. A LITTLE WORK A little work, a little play To keep us going — and so, good-day ! A little warmth, a little light Of love”s bestowing — and so good night! A little fun, to match the sor- row Of each day’s growing — and so, good-morrow! A little trust that when we die We reap our sowing! And so good-bye! — by George du Maurier

PAGE TWO + SEASON OF 1938 1939 THE ORIOLE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Betty Jordan Betty Jordan as Editor-in- Chief of the Oriole and Presi- dent of the Girl’s Hi-Y, has proven her executive ability by filling each of these offices cap- ably. As Editor-in-Chief of the Oriole of ' 39 her energy and good spirits seemed boundless. She was always willing to lend a helping hand and give a cheery word to all. Betty’s leadership has again been shown in the successful way in which she led the local Hi-Y in entertaining the state convention here last fall. Notwithstanding these extra curricular activities she is one of the first honor students for the first semester. Her pleasing personality has won her many lasting friends. APPRECIATION To the art contributors, the members of the “Oriole” staff are greatly indebted. Through original sketches of their novel and varied ideas, they have added a unique and distinctive touch to this year’s Annual. Into their unusual drawings, they have unwittingly woven the precious thread of the true and undying spirit of Pulaski High, and, by their excellent portrayal of incidents in school life, have emphasized to a great extent the natural trend of P. H. S. personalities. They have exercised their artistic talent to the best of their ability in this field, and have done a great deal toward beautifying the 1939 Oriole. We are proud of them, and we deeply appreci- ate their unfailing cooperation and faithful interest which has played so great a part in the success of bis year book. ART EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER Kalima, as the Art Editor of our Oriole, has proved her effi- ciency not only as leader but also as an artist. Under her ex- pert leadership and through her untiring efforts we have se- cured a number of original and attractive drawings for our an- nual. These drawings bring the days at P. H. S. closer to us and make the events stand out more clearly in our minds. We feel that we owe a lot to Kalima for all she has done to get these sketches that have helped to make our annual more original and superior than ever before. As business manager of the Oriole, Arnold has proven himself very capable. He also held other responsible offices in his class. He accepted his re- sponsibilities cheerfully, nev- er grumbled about the many things he had to do. His re- sponsibilities were ones of great importance and which require honesty, a keen business sense, and diplomacy Through his splendid char- acter, many of us have gained new inspirations. His spirit seems to be indomitable. With- out Arnold we would have been at a loss in many ways. Kalima Dalton Arnold Lester FOREWORD To present the school year in an interesting and unique manner, yet to build a memorial, not for the present but for the future — one that will recall the associations, happy hours, activities and the proud achievements of the students and Old P. H. S. — has been the endeavor of the 1939 ORIOLE ASST. BUS. MANAGER Bill Dent Without Bill we could hardly have put out our Oriole. He has worked hard to make it a success, and it can truthfully be said that what ever credit the Oriole might receive Bill large- ly shares it. Whenever our spirits were low, it was always Bill’s wit that once more made it easier to go on. In working on our Oriole Bill has shown us that he pos- sessed executive ability and business sense that few people (even older people) possess. He also found time to take a responsible part in the play. “Lady Spirfire,” which netted the Oriole $50.00. Once more Bill helped with the stage equipment, lights, etc., and al- so skillfully portrayed a part which hardly anyone could have played so well. Bill is a student of which any school would be proud. One that will be missed and one that has been a credit to Pulaski High School. ORIOLE STAFF Much credit should be giv- en to our assistant editors for all the work and time spent on helping to make our Oriole a success. They were always ready and willing to help when they were needed and we could depend upon them to do the job assigned them, to the best of their ability. Without the cooperation of the assistants we could not have made a success of the Ori- ole. We also wish to express our appreciation to all others who helped with the Oriole in any way.
