UT our ’39-’40 Juniors were plenty jolly enough. Yes, sir ! The fireworks started in their Freshman year three years ago. In reality, at that prehistoric date, they knew absolutely nothing about high school life; but you wouldn’t catch them admitting it — oh, no! And so they tried to put away some of their childish ways and act, with small degree of success, quite grown up; but they still retain some of their frivolous manners. There were 171 of them who gloriously made their famous debut in F. II. S. and they found as their “Modern In- structors ot the Untutored,” Miss Louise Bondurant, Mr. D. I). Farth- ing, M Alderson Propps and Miss Laura ' alton. Of the four, Miss Laura Dalton was the only one who could stand their pressure, for the others left after teaching them just one year. Many of them obtained some experience in journalistic work when they edited a Freshman newspaper, which was most powerful. They end- ed that first year by adding units of Science, Civics, Matfi. and F ' irst Year English to their credit. One hundred and sixteen of them survived their first crucial term and were ready to take the next hurdle, much the wiser. It took three teach- ers to handle them the next year: Miss Lynnwood Kinder, Miss Mary Helen Crosswhite, who was forced to retire because of ill health, and Miss Elizabeth Painter. In addition to their studies, they put in a quite versatile program, taking part whole- heartedly in sports activities, club and student-body affairs. The home stretch was in view as they entered the second half of their career as veterans of P. H. S. and 106 stepped into the ranks as Juniors at the beginning of this last school year. Their regular routine was chang- ed somewhat with a new principal, Mr. Edgar G. Pruet, and many new teachers. But happy high school careers were father pepped up by our large, adequate gym and new Home Ec. cottage. As their Senior year looms ahead there are many of their number who will hold down school and club offices: Billie Kirchner is the new State Hi-Y President; Johnny Wygal is Captain of the 1940 edition of our Football team ; Howard Golden and Hubert Groseclose w ill be Editor- in-Chief and Business Manager re- spectively of the 1941 Oriole, while Nichol Eskridge has already been elected President of the ( lass ol ’41. Miss Elizabeth Blair, Mr. Ralph O’ Hair and Miss Catherine Wood w r ere the Junior home-room teachers and truly deserve a lot of credit for it. On May 10th of this exciting year the class presented a J unior play entitled “When Sally Comes to Town,” a Stark comedy, with Ann Andring in the lead. Other “Jolly Juniors” in the cast were Sonny Eggert, Wilma Carter, Doyle Strain, James Romano, Nickie Meredith, Ruth Rhea Landis, Lois Russell and Elizabeth Vaughan. They now consider themselves a little “grown-upish,” bu t that, of course, is just their opinion. Some of the faculty insist that they’re “just children in men’s clothing.” All in all, they’ve led a most active school life for the past three years, and naturally look forward to the last round when soon they’ll be “(un) Dignified Seniors.”
