O CREATE, maintain, and extend throughout l he school and community high standards of Chris- tian character is the threefold purpose of this very prominent organization, which was led ihrough 1939-40 by its capable President, Sarah Lugar; Vice- President, Virginia Painter; Secretary, Elizabeth Brown; and very efficient Treasurer, Elizabeth Adair. Excitement reigned in the hearts of the members when they took off for the State Convention in Charlottesville last November. They were well represented by Local President and State Vice- President Sarah Lugar, Billie Kirchner (who was elected State President at the convention), Mary Ann Ratcliffe, Elizabeth Adair, Peggy Laughon, Frances Plunkett, Virginia Painter, Margaret Bunts, and Elaine Eggert. Last December they were again honored by the invitation to install a new Hi-Y Club at Virginia High School in Bristol, Virginia. The girls attended some church in a body once a month, and in the spring a Bible study was held. At Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, baskets of food and clothes were given to charity. Our Hi-Y prides itself in the selection of Miss Catherine Wood and Miss Mary Ann Sanderson as club sponsors, while the membership is composed of Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. Seniors who sparked the club in all achievements included Frances Plunkett, Elizabeth Brown, Isabel Gilmer, Sarah Lugar, Mary Louise Cassell, Virginia Painter, Mildred Keister, Katherine Harman, Mary Ann Rat- cliffe, Elaine Eggert, Laura Clark, Margaret Bunts, Margaret Owen, Betty Billig, Elizabeth Adair, and Ida Wallace; the underclassmen — Edith Dickerson, Peggy Dobson, Dorothy Gilmer, Letty Waugh, Billy Kirchner, Helen Jordan, Peggy Laughon, Lois Rosenbaum, and Patsy Miller — contributed a part to the organization that could not be outdone by any Senior member.

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.
