PERPETUATING A MEMORY Our Advertising and Circulation 1 )e- partments did their work so capably and efficiently that soon we came to the startling and joyful realization that our financial goal was practically reached. As a final business enterprise, our inimitable Mr. Aust produced and di- rected an entirely successful freak show, “The P. H. S. Talent Parade,” which brought to light much of our latent P. H. S. talent and provided one of the most delightful entertainments of the year. In this, our IQ40 Oriole, we have tried to the best of our ability to por- tray for you the story of this past school year. We realize that it is far from perfect, but we hope that in years to come, it will serve as a key to the door of many treasured memories of the year 1939-’40. As the years go by, may it ever increase in value as its pages bring back fond recollections of our “ School days, school days, Dear old Golden Rule days!” REAR -MR. FOV AUST. ELIZABETH ADAIR.

. . . . THIS BUSINESS OF Scarcely having settled down from the natural excitement and up- heaval that the beginning of a new school year usually brings forth, we realized that it was definitely time to start working if we were to have a 1940 Oriole; so we promptly elected out- most competent Oriole officials- Editor- in-Chief, Betty Jane Billig; and Business Manager, Elizabeth Adair. Our selec- tion proved to be quite an intelligent one, too; for Betty worked untiringly and, although at times disheartened her- self, she always had a cheery word for the rest of the staff and held aloft the un- dying spirit of the Class of ' 40. Eliz- abeth, the first feminine business man- ager in the history of Orioles , certainly disproved any of the ancient opinions that it takes a man to do business, by quickly and quietly obtaining the neces- sary financial portion of our Annual. This year we decided to choose two sponsors, Miss Charlotte Booker for the editorial division, and Mr. Foy Aust for the business end of the organization. They were both wisely chosen and were invariably reliable, faithful, and willing aids to all of us in our “hours of need.” M iss Booker’s sensible advice and sug- gestions were of the utmost assistance to the Editorial Staff, while Foy’s originali- ty, psychology, and sense of humor often saved the day for the business depart- ment. We’ll all be eternally grateful for their essential contributions to the success of this Oriole. Soon after the Oriole election, Betty and Elizabeth announced their congenial staff appointees as follows: Ass’t Editor- in-Chief, Sarah Lugar; Literary Editor, Alice Carney, who chose as her assistant, Mary Louise Cassell; Art Editor, Ann Morehead; Sports Editor, Virginia Pain- ter; Photographic Editor, Douglas White- sell; Ass’t Business Manager, Donald Morehead; Advertising Manager, John Tate; Circulation Managers, Garland Carper and Kemper Baker; Associate Managers, Franklin Hiltzheimer and Charlie Michele. The underclassmen, who were elected by their separate classes, were: Junior, Nichol Eskridge; Sophomore, Ruth Wallace; and Fresh- man, Lloyd Byrd. Realizing that we should have a special place for official Oriole dealings, we then set about obtaining an Oriole office. With the consent of Mr. Pruet, a small, unused, second-floor room was accord- ingly turned into official Oriole head- quarters, and some old packing boxes promptly made into desks for the Busi- ness Manager and Editor. A few more appropriate decorations, and every- thing was in readiness. First there were photographic, en- graving, and printing contracts to close; and after much consideration, formal agreements were signed with the Pulaski Studio, Jahn Ollier Engraving Co., and B. D. Smith Bros., Printers, respectively. But that was only the be- ginning. Books on modern methods of publishing annuals had to be read and studied; a sequence dummy had to be set up; pictures had to be taken, mounted, and sent to the engravers; articles had to be written; and finally, loose ends brought together and the Annual sent to press. But even that was far from the end. ...in fact, not until the Oriole came back as you see it now, could we really call our work completed. Our editorial staff will always be grateful to those non-staff members who so graciously cooperated by giving their time and energy toward the completion of this Oriole. The Business Staff began its very important task of procuring the neces- sary “wherewithal!” early in the first term when they sponsored a Frolic, directed by our Editor-in-Chief, which consisted of a main show in the form of a musical comedy entitled, “To Schrick the Villain,” numerous side shows and booths, and finally climaxing the whole affair, a big dance. “The P. H. S. Fol- lies,” as it was called, was distinctly a success in every way and will be one of the lasting memories of the Class ol ’40.

HONORARY SOCIETY WAS FIRST TO REORGANIZE ( THE formerly established clubs of P. H.S. the Pulaski Chapter of the Beta Club was the first to be reorganized this year. The club got off to an ex- cellent beginning with Miss Elizabeth McDonald as the sponsor; and under the capable leadership of President Garnett Phibbs, assisted by Vice-President Sara Hudson, Secretary Sarah Lugar, and Treasurer Billy Mumpower, it forged on to new heights of attainment. Other charter members, including Eliz- abeth Adair, Betty Billig, Margaret Bunts, Laura Clark (who took a prominent part in the State Con- vention at Roanoke), Ruth Dickerson, Helen Jackson, Margaret Owen, Kathleen Owens, John Tate, and James Vinson, contributed their essential part to the organization by taking outstanding roles in every activity. They were equaled in achievements also by the Juniors — Nita Austin, Marion Bralley, Peggy Dobson, Edith Dickerson, Nichol Eskridge, Chris- tine Fairchild, Hubert Groseclose, Katherine Jones, and G eraldine Millirons. Those members who were elected and installed at mid-term included: Seniors- Albert Folden, Edward Carney, Mary Lee Hudson, Margaret Kegley, Dorothy Manuel, Charles Michele, Frances Plunkett; and Juniors Billie Kirchner and Dottie Leache. ’Twas a very active club which planned and carried out various projects for the year, such as generously contributing to the new movie screen, supplying free football programs last season, assist- ing in obtaining lockers, and sponsoring the provi- sion of the 1940-41 handbooks, besides innumerable social functions throughout the year. The Beta Club has been successful this year in upholding its main purpose — that of promoting scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and character throughout the entire school, as well as in individual lives.
