OUR ATHLETIC HEROES JCiVERY club has some purpose; and “to forward athletics and sportsmanship in Pulaski High School through a gathering of wholesome comradeship and fellowship” is the foremost purpose of the Boys’ Monogram Club. The organization was under the sponsorship of Mr. John S. Coiner and includes all P. H. S. boys who have been awarded letters for outstanding athletic achievements, representing the three major sports— football, basketball, and base- ball, besides swimming and minor sports. Approximately 2.1 boys merited letters this year for athletic gallantry, including Robert Alley, Andrew Ashby, “Bo” Smith, Charles Michele, Jack Bouldin, Kenneth Farmer, Nichol Eskridge, Edward Carney, Bow Haislip, Burman Grantham, Johnny W ' ygal, Dick Haislip, John Tate, Bill Hardy, Howard Golden, Forrest Owens, Ralph Tester, Bill Bouldin, Donald Morehead, Tom Massie, Moody Vann, Eugene Huff and Louis Painter. In the spring the club was entirely reorganized under the direction of its sports-minded sponsor, and they adopted a new constitution; plans were also made toward a more active year during the next school term. Other members besides those listed above were Watt Amburn, Roy Chatman, Douglas Moyers, David Jameson, Cooper Perkins and Porter Ham.

fi fuor OFF THE GRIDIRON Wh EN P. H. S. came out upon the field for the grand and glorious opening of the 1939 gridiron season, our famed eleven was greeted with flying colors mingled with the deafening crescendo of rahs and rahs and sis-boom-bahs that characterize the undying spirit of ye Olde Alma Mater. Several weeks before the beginning of school, our new and, as he’s proved without a doubt, most efficient coach, young John S. Coiner, had appeared up- on the scene; and the boys immediately began training strenuously in order to be in tip-top shape for that first great fight of the season. Coach Coiner is an alumnus of William and Mary, where he coached track and football for a half year. While in college he also starred in foot- ball, baseball, track, tennis and boxing, and participated in various other sports activities. Before coming to P. H. S. he also had a year’s experience in coaching baseball, basketball, and football at Blackstone High School in Blackstone, Virginia. Our curly haired athletic in- structor is a native of Washington, I ).

The boys had been training for only a few weeks when, on September 16, they stepped out to their first battle of the year. Morehead, Vann, Owens, Grantham, Hall, Wygal, Hardy, Golden, Huff, Tate, Massie, and Adams were all in that first lineup and, although the Vinton Terriers topped us by a slight margin of 13-6, our undefeated P. H. S. spirit was clearly shown one week later, when we scored a smashing victory over Hillsville and downed them 60-0. Then victory followed victory! On Septem- ber 30, in the first night game our boys had played, Martinsville fell under our victorious charge as we pocketed an- other winning score of 6-0. October 6 found us facing one of our most dreaded rivals. For seven long years the Radford Bobcats had scored successive victories; but this year the tables turned in our favor when, after a sluggish first half under the hot sun at
