‘ 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

F 1 : Si !: k j, tl » ' t t k = ■S ' e THE ORIOLE SEASON OF 1938 1939 if PAGE FIVE HISTORY OF PULASKI SCHOOLS The history of the High School is rather obscure and it was only through the help and assistance given by Mr. Eck- man, Mrs. Woolling, Mr. Frank Wysor, Mr. and Mrs. K. V. Brugh, Mr. Cooley, Mrs. Purvis and Dr. J. L. Kent that the data could be compiled. To these we offer our sincere thanks. Many students have gone in and out the doors of Pulaski High School but few know much about its history. It is our purpose to better acquaint its students with the school and to hope that in doing so it may endear it to each one. The red brick school house that was on the corner of Fourth Street and Randolph Avenue, was built about the first part of the early nineties. This school was combined with the grades and the high school, and sometimes the courses of each were said to overlap due to the small num- ber of students attending. Some of the principals there were: Mr. Russel ' ,, Mr. Darst. and Mr. C. B. Tate, uncle of W. P. Tate. Mrs. R. H. Woolling taught at this school. Also Miss Ju- lia Leache, who now resides in Roanoke. Miss Virginia Stone taught there from 1900-1906. She is now one of the out- standing teachers of the United States. Mrs. Andrew Gemmell was one of the teachers and her daughter, Hartensia, who did much to help put over the lib- rary, graduated from Randolph Macon and is now studying for her master’s degree at Co- lumbia. The first graduating class was composed of six girls. Among these were: Mrs. James Graham, the former Mary Lou Campbell now living in Wytheville; the late Mary Stewart, Dr. Pauline William- son who is now head of the health department of the Met- ropolitan Life Insurance Com- pany of New York, and Dr. Williamson is also on the board of trustees at Hollins College, Mary Thomas, at this time dean of a college in Wil- liamsburg, Ky. f Miss Ida Howard, now Mrs. Childs, of Orlando, Fla., sister of Mrs. Agnes Tilson. Mr. E. T. Howard, and Mrs. Robert Crabtree are ALMA MATER We’re proud of you , dear P. H. S. Of the orange and the black , Your symbols stand for all that’s true There’s nothing that you lack. May you ever be triumphant Your spirit never grave And may your glorious colors With honor ever wave. May your children e’er be loyal Your causes ever just- May time n’er dim your standards Nor dull your guilded lust. among those who attended this school. The first person to take an interest and the one who did the most to put the high school on its feet was Miss Frederica Stone from Roanoke, who taught here several years. This old school was torn down in 1934. The site of the Nunnley apartments on Sixth Street was once the site of an Episcopal church, but because of the defective heating system the church caught fire and burn- ed. A school was then built on this site where Mrs. Sayers taught a private school. Mr. E. J. Cooley was principal of this school from 1911-14. On January 1, 1915, $50,- 000 was borrowed to build the present Pulaski High School. The site was once used for horse show grounds with grand stands along Main Street. The first pricipal was Mrs. Sayers. A p’acque has been placed by the alumni in the hall of the school in her mem- orv. Next Mr. Anderson was nrincipal — 1917-18, then Mr. Fitzpatrick, now residing in Radford, a Mrs. Thomas was nrincipal about the time with Mr. Gresham following in 1919-20. Mr. Elliott followed Mr. Gresham and was orin- rioal in 1921-22. Next K. V. Brugh followed Mr. Elliott, the years of bis nrincipalsbip being from 1922-27. Mr. Eck- man became princinal at this time and has remained so to this present day. The High School students in the future will have more opportunities than they have had heretofore. In recent years several new subjects and courses have been added to the curricu ' um. such as the commercia ' course, in- cluding shorthand, typing, and bookkeeping, which was add- ed in 1928. Then, in Septem- ber 1937, the occupational sci- ence course was started. This enables students to attend school, and work at the same time: that is, training them for their future work. It is espe- cially designed to help those who do not plan to attend co 1 - lege. Mr. Aust has a large class of Seniors and Juniors, and he has beautifully equip- ped a special room for this study. j There will also be a gym- nasium with a seating capacity of 500 erected? behind) the school for use next year.
