FIFTEEN RAHS FOR THE TEAMS! ES, fifteen hundred rahs for the teams! Are we proud of ’em? You said it! Every last lad and lassie of P. H. S. feels a warm glow of pride in remembering the brave and daring battles that our Orioles and Oriolettes put up to bring home fame and glory perhaps not always in victory, but what’s better still, in being true representatives of our standards of spirit and sportsman- ship. ...win or lose!

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS We, the Senior Class of IQ40, hereby resolve : 1. Never to be the Senior Class of 1940 again. 2. Always to be (and we quote) “numskulls and babies, who act like the inhabitants of a menag- erie!” (end of quote). 3. Always to achieve success in every new phase of fun we strive to commit. 4. Positively to procure all our senior class privileges on or be- fore June 5, 1940. 5. To love, honor, and obey all our dear teachers ' til death, marriage or graduation do us part. We, the Junior Class of IQ40, hereby resolve : 1. To be the most undignified of undignified seniors next 1941. 2. To follo w closely in the footsteps of our forerunners, the 1940 “Senior Class Dopes.” 3. To proceed undauntedly in our roles as “children in men’s clothing.” 4. Not to begin our second child- hood before September 1940. 5. Never to admit that any of our underclassmen could possibly ap- proach our status as being the jolliest of “Jolly Juniors.” We, the Student Body of 1940, hereby resolve : 1. To win the State championship in football, basketball, swim- ming, etc., every year in the future. 2. To install a sound recording sys- tem for future cheering at Rad- ford and Wvtheville football games. 3. That P. H. S. shall be our one and only High School Alma Mater. 4. To uphold standards set before us by our 1940 Seniors. 5. To love, honor, and cherish for- ever ideals of invaluable worth which our school lif e at P. H. S. has striven to teach us. We, a few members of the 1940 Oriole staff, hereby resolve: 1. Never again to sit up a minute later than 6:45 a. m. writing for the Oriole. 2. To read every single word of our Annual and to understand it in its full depth of meaning. 3. To let others in on a little secret, that “Experience is the best teacher.”

COACHES JOHN S. COINER JEAN BUNDY CATHERINE WOOD RALPH O ' HAIR And here we give a vote of praise, thanks, and congratulations to our bright and cheery cheer leaders, Ann Morehead, Sonny Miller, Isabel Gilmer, Douglas Moyers and Puddy Steger, for so successfully leading the fans on the sidelines and upholding our true P. H. S. spirit in victory or defeat. These cheer leaders were se- lected by student body election, and have achieved their goal with true success in encouraging high stand- ards of cheering in the cheering sec- tion. We had four basketball coaches this year, Miss Jean Bundy, Miss Catherine Wood, Mr. John S. Coiner and Mr. Ralph O’Hair. Miss Bun- dy, whose preeminence in coaching our girl forwards was so distinctly shown as the records totaled up 240 Oriolette points lor the season, has always been a sports fan. While at- tending Madison College at Harrison- burg she not only took active part in hockey, baseball, basketball, archery, and swimming, but she also conduct- ed swimming classes and coached the Freshman basketball squad. One of Pulaski’s most prominent golt fans, Miss Wood, who so splen- diferously coached our feminine guards, is also a lover of all kinds of sports, including basketball, swim- ming, tennis, etc. Coach Coiner was the director of our varsity boys’ sports activi- ties, and proved his worth in each of our three major sports, not to men- tion all the others; while Mr. O’Hair, a wizard at football, track, tennis, basketball and all the others, in- structed our promising Junior varsi- ty. Basketball season opened with a bang on the night of January 10th when we played Bland on their court. We were defeated in that first at- tempt, but ah!. ..on February 16, we made a glorious comeback in one of the most exciting games of the season. The whistle blew! Our Oriol- ettes were in their linup! Referees were on hand and the fight was on! The Bland girls outweighed ours and towered over them in height! But did that phase them? Xo, indeed! The mad scramble went on tor three quarters and the score stood 13-13!
