To the Student Body: I would, like to take this opportunity to thank all the students of P. II. S. for their loyalty and support in co-operating with the Student Council and me. I have throughly enjoyed working with the Council this year and I sincerely hope that we, as student repre- sentatives, have laid a substantial foundation for the growth and development cf the future P. H. S. student councils. Our Student Council, which was organized in November, had, as its aim, to give the pupils a medium through which they might express themselves on school policies and coordinate extra-curricula activities. One of the most im- portant purposes is to foster democracy. Some of the things which they have accom- plished included controlling of hall traffic, help- ing, with other clubs, to obtain lockers, and sponsoring a dance. Garnett Phibbs was elected president of the Student Body. Other officers are: John Tate, vice-president; Ann Morehead, secretary; Vir- ginia Painter, treasurer; Miss Mary Ann Sander- son, sponsor. Senior representatives: Sarah Lugar, Elizabeth Adair and Billy Mumpower; Junior representatives: Nita Austin, Dottie I.eacheand Louis Painter; Sophomore represent- atives: Peggy Bosang, Ruth Wallace and G. C. Hall; Freshman representatives: Margaret Black, Jane Divers, Jean Rhoades, Tommy Dickerson, and Porter Ham; Beta Club: John Tate; Boys’ Hi-Y: Hubert Groseclose; Girls ' Hi-Y: Margaret Bunts; Glee Club: Ann More- head; Girls’ Monogram Club: Virginia Painter.

START THE FIRES directions of Old Tom, our veteran janitor. But there was also a little sparrow’s nest entwined around a rain-spout up there, which Bob de- cided to apply his torch to and thus exterminate, forever, pests(?) around the school. Yes, that’s how it really was; and ’twas on that beautiful August morning way back in 1939 that, in attempting to do his duty with a broomstick-torch as a weapon, Bob accidentally set fire to our Alma Mater. The damage has been repaired though, and school started one week later — so what? No sense in being a pessimist about it!

SCHOOL BEGAN SEPTEMBER 14 O NE DAY last fall, September 14, to be exact, there was a terrific uproar in these old halls — an uproar which our old Alma Mater welcomed with joy. For three long, hot, summer months she had stood practically neglected by her P. H. S. children. But now, she was again happily assured that they had not forgotten here. No, most of them had come back to spend another school year within her walls — a school year to be remember- ed always in fond recollection of happy experiences. Yes, there were approximately 460 P. H.S. “noise-makers” who reg- istered on that beautiful September morning; and all of us were lull of vim, vigor, and vitality, ready to start our 1939-’40 school life off right. It was a great day — a day of re- newing old acquaintances, a day of meeting new teachers and friends, a day of comparing vacation notes, and a day of generally getting ac- quainted with the whole set up around which we would build our lively interests for the next nine months. Included in that gay number were nearly 150 bright young studes entirely inexperienced in high school functions and eagerly starting out to travel the highway that would some day lead them either to life’s beck- oning portals or to institutions ot higher learning. These young fresh- men made up the largest class in the school; and soon the bewildered ex- pression that characterized every young fledgling’s enthusiastic coun- tenance grew less perplexed, as they gradually settled down to the regular routine of acquiring useful know- ledge and indulging in their new ad- venture of high school activities. Bubbling over with unsuppress- ed excitement, they were promptly divided into five home-rooms under the faculty guidance of Misses Jean Bundy, J. Frances Allen, Vir- ginia Harman, Elizabeth Painter, and Laura Dalton. Soon after the first bit of glamour had worn off, the en- tire class met and held their first elec- tion to select 1939-’40 class officers. Mary Helen Keith was elected presi- dent, and Vernon Greenamyer vice- president; “Slick” Tench was chosen secretary, while Frank Newsome won the title of treasurer. Thus organ- ized, the class was led through a most profitable and enjoyable year; and despite the major organizations from which they were barred, entered into many activities which their upper- classmen enjoyed.
