ARE JUSTLY PROUD () UR beautiful new gymnasium is also the pride and joy of every student of P. H. S. Most of us can remember our anxious anticipation as we watched it grow with wonder- ing eyes from the sturdy and solid foundation; and none of us were disappointed; in- stead, we gazed in awe at its spaciousness. Physical education as a scheduled course of study was introduced this year for the first time in our history, and the regular gym classes were held under the exclusive direction of Coach John S. Coiner, who carefully instructed both girls and boys in the various phases of physical training. Social life in the gym began with its formal opening on October 20, with a dance following. Since then, other various dances, as well as all sports and other extra cur- ricula activities, have found their special places in the use of our P. H. S. gym. Our Commercial Department under the direction of Miss Mary Hays is also located in this new addition. G‘J mnasium

OF WHICH WE OCHOOL life at P. H. S. has been exceedingly brightened by these beautiful and mod- ern edifices which have recently been added to our high school campus. The Home Eco- nomics cottage (as shown above) is a perfect little “dream house with four rooms- li ing room, dining room, bedroom, and kitchen — and bath, besides the activity room; and it s equipped to perfection with the most modern of furnishings throughout. The cottage has been found indispensable for holding club meetings and small school parties; and it has been the center of various other social and educational func- tions throughout the year, beginning with a Silver Tea last October, which formally opened its portals. Miss Charlotte Booker is the attractive “keeper” of the cottage, and under her careful direction the course in the science of home economics has been capably instituted in our P. H. S. curriculum. Under her guidance, approximatley 94 girls have been taught the art of home economics this year and the cottage has proved a most profitable factor in our 1939-’40 school term.

WE WILL Be UG-J ' a (Pruet In THE fall of our school year ’39-’40, the faculty was the first to appear upon the scene. Most of them had come from other locales; but they soon got acquainted and we ' ve all had lots of fun working together throughout the year. From Ashland, Alabama, came our new principal, Mr. Edgar G. Pruet, who claims as his Alma Maters both the University of Alabama and Peabody College, where he received his A. B. and M. A. degrees, respectively. Our Home Ec-spert, Miss Charlotte Booker, hails from Blackstone, Virginia. She spent her last four years at Mary Washington, but has so captivated interest here that P. 11. S. now calls her our own. W ith the new gym, new dressing rooms, modern showers and a handsome coach Mr. John S. Coiner of Washington, I). C., grad- uate of William and Mary — everything in the Physical Education Department was complete; and who should be in charge of the new com- mercial room but Miss Mary Hays, graduate of Bow ling Green Business University. She com es to us from Kentucky and has interested many in the course of Commercial Science. Miss Mary Ann Sanderson, the Bird ' s Nest addition to our faculty, migrated here after obtaining her B. S. degree at Farmville State Teachers College; and she has proved a valuable asset to the Department of Social Studies. We were also able to capture tall, sophisticated Miss Catherine Wood, who came to us from Vir- ginia Intermont College with an enviable record. She received her A. B. from Randolph- Macon and was orginallv from Pulaski. " Gone With the Wind” had its Scarlet O ' Hara, but P. H. S.’s Ralph O ' Hair, from Hampden-Sidney, b!ew : in one day as a third member of our Social Studies Department. Our Bundy hopped in from Lebanon, Vir- ginia, to try out her mathematical wizardry, w hich she acquired at Madison College, on P. 11. S. students; while Miss Virginia Harman of Dublin, Virginia, full of vim, vigor, and vitality, began her teaching career in math at P. H. S. in September, 1939. Miss Harman attended Radford State Teachers College and Randolph- Macon. Included in our Science Department is Miss Laura Dalton, our good ol ' standby, who has been faithful to P. H. S., and we are proud to claim her as one of our own. We’ve a Yankee too, in this department— Miss J. Frances Allen of New York. She’s attended the University of Virginia, Radford, and the University of Mary- land in her young life and her major interest is biology. Civics and English are the subjects which Miss Elizabeth Painter of Draper, Virginia, teaches; and her list of Alma Maters are Farm- ville, V. P. I., and Clountbia; while Miss Eliza- beth Blair, of Max Meadows, Virginia, obtained her know ledge at Stonewall Jackson and Vander- bilt. She is our exclusive French teacher, and also teaches English. Moving hither from Roanoke, two years ago, came Miss Elizabeth MacDonald, who won her degree from Roanoke
