We have endeavored to show through word and picture our Alma Mater’s sons and daughters at work and play. From this unfolding portray- al we see that it has been a most successful year in athletics, social life and scholastic standing. We shall not forget the inspiration of all those who in any way have helped to make this book a success. We hope that, as you glance over the pages, they will help you to re-live your high school years with warm satisfaction. This year will bring to a close some of our careers as actors and actresses upon the stage of P. H. S. Soon we will be acting upon another stage which, though fascinating, can never compare with these last four years. Even so, on with the show! It ImJcis September ig 40 cAnd Another year Began THE STORY of a Year of Our Laves at PULASKI HIGH SCHOOL as told by the 1941 ORIOLE VOLUME 20 Published by the Student Body PULASKI HIGH SCHOOL PULASKI, VIRGINIA To OUR FLAG M e Dedicate r H E PLACE- Memories — Yes . . Just a single , simple word, Yet fresh and sweet as the morning dew: For us, a thousand happy thoughts it gives, As through the years we think of you! ■ — Foy Aust. Home Ec. Cottage W HERE WE GREW UP . ELL, here are our pride and joys — the Gymnasium and Home Ec. Cottage! After spending many happy and memorable hours working and playing in these spacious and luxurious edifices we regard them as vital assets to every P. H. S. student. With even Webster at our disposal we could not possibly express in words our fondness for the Home Economics Cottage — our dream house. During the whole year it welcomed us to club meetings, school parties, socials, and the study of Home Ec. itself. The cottage took on a new charm with the efferves- cent spirit and spontaneousness of Miss Charlotte Booker, our attractive “keeper.” Interior Home Ec. Gymnasium Our indispensable Gym, which has greatly augmented our interest in sports, gives each of us a feeling of complacency. We have been strengthened by the vigor and vitality of Coach John S. Coiner and Assistant Coach John Davidson, who were our instructors in physical education. All of us hold dear these memories of our Gym. There is no doubt but that both of these additions have been very profitable to us and will always occupy a place in our hearts. In the future we know that other sons and daughters of our Alma Mater will regard them in the same manner and they will be of lasting service to the students of P. H. S. AND PLAYED Interior G ymnasium THESE GUIDED AND COUNSELED US HE faculty of Pulaski High School for 1940-41 will probably be remembered just as any other faculty left behind by the graduates — some of them because of their patience, some because of their impatience. We k now, though, that they have worked hard in trying to prepare us for that fateful future. Some- times they may have seemed to lose patience with us; but we remember, perhaps reluctant- ly, that we must have been quite aggravating at times ourselves. As we look back over the hours spent in classes, we must admit that they have been enjoyable; and each of our teachers has had a share in making those happy hours. From 9 o’clock every morning until 3:15 every afternoon they pounded us with knowledge, halting occasionally to calm our effervescence, or take a deep breath to begin anew. Often they were quite interest- ed in hearing some of our more personal prob- lems, too. What we are trying to say is that school wasn’t such an awful bore with it all. After school hours were the times we learned them best. Although still retaining their academic dignity, they seemed to be more like “one of the crowd.’’ They had Cokes with us in the drug store; they rode around with us; they shopped with us; they went to football and basketball games with us; why, they even danced with us. It was a friendly crowd, we thought, and they actually seemed to like us too. The teachers had high ideals about our school and we know they took a pride in it. We appreciated their efforts to make ours a better and more outstanding institution, though at times we were not as co-operative as we might have been. Each spent many long hours trying to right our difficulties and put this school ahead; and now that we have reached the end, they are equally as proud of our laurels as we are. We are not trying to paint a beautiful picture of our teachers or put them on a majestic pedestal, but we do want it known that we appreciate every member of the facul- tv. We are proud of them and are pleased to present these efficient leaders in our book. Edgar G. Pruet 1 ft 3 MISS JAN E AKERS. A. 1$. and H. S. WITH PATIENCE AND TOLERANCE MISS LAURA DALTON, ITS. MR.

A HE Student Council, founded last year, got under way with the election oi represen ta- tives from home rooms soon after the open- ing of the first semester. It was sponsored by Mrs. Mary Ann Lemons and was headed by Edith Dickerson, elected by popular vote dur- ing the spring of ’40. Most important aims of the Council are to sponsor and carry on activities which will foster better school spirit and improve the atmosphere of our student life and to aid in the solving of problems which arise in school. Activities of the Club during the year in- cluded the sponsorship of the Lost and Found Department, Second Hand Book Exchange, presentation and dedication of the Hag to the school, purchase of Student Council badges, the organization of a student Co-operative Association group in the grades, the furnish- ing of ushers for school programs and the spon- soring and presentation of a trophy case for display purposes in the school. Representa- tives were also sent to the Students Co- operative Association Conference in Radford. Other than the president, officers elected to serve were Peggy Dobson, vice-president, and Ruth Wallace, secretary-treasurer. Other members were: Louis Painter, Johnny Wygal, Anne Andring, Ruth Wall’ace, Helen Jordan, Bonnie Gallimore, Patsy Miller, Jean Rhoades, Tommy Wagner, Gray Farm- er, Peggy Dobson, Jean Edwards, Hubert Groseclose, Sonny Eggert, and Jane Hiltz- heimer. ■ 1 L- vH - ■k ' V, f- -JgJB K ? oc-MjpPBQl W -» 1 ™» ■ » - i --- Jl ' Fi • Mi ■ r JS| — • 1 — 1 t?w,j( r r v «- - f:Jp - ' f ' _ 10 1 SLBr - » 1 -» 121 t W la AND THESE WERE LEAD SLIGHT L Y T Y R A NNICA1 SOPHS FIRST ROW IRENE AKERS, KELLY ALBERT, GARNETT AMBURN, REX ANDREW, N.

One was heard to say, “Do you mean we really get to change classes?” And another, “What’s science like?” Soon, however, they were to learn and become accustomed to the new life after they were assigned to their classes. And under the guidance of Hensel Eckman, principal, and the home-room teachers, Richard T. Daugh- tery, Miss Frances Foster and Miss Crystal I " rye, they were, by the end of the first year, transformed into full-fledged high school students and consequently were ready to assume the responsibilities and dignities that become Sophomores. In 1 939, numbering only 97, the Class of ' 42 was no longer timid, but had the tendency to trip the extreme. They resolved to “turn the tables” and be sophisticated upper class- men. However, furthering their scholastic elforts, the Sophs soon forgot their self-im- portance and were ably urged on by the tutor- ing of E. G. Pruet, the new principal from Bama, Miss Lynnwood Kinder, Miss Mary Ann Sanderson, and Miss Mary Hays. They suddenly found themselves within the throes of Latin, history, biology, home economics and algebra and were truly becoming educat- ed. Seeing our advancing group, one of the largest in history, taking up Junior life at (he beginning of ’40, Mr. Pruet came to the real- ization that he would have to find some way to start the class off right. He introduced the formula, H. A. + H. A. Hays, Akers and Hardy and Arnold. We found things very little different ex- cept that the high school had been moved down stairs and there were several new faces among the faculty. We immediately had to settle down to work with the new subjects that confronted us, namely : chemistry, French, geometry, shorthand, and typing. Many of our members became prominent, holding im- portant positions in the Hi-Y, Student Coun- cil, Beta and various other clubs. At mid-term almost all of the 99 Juniors either jumped over, or climbed under the fence, to be only a term behind becoming Seniors. Now that the class was eligible, the ring question made its appearance and was soon settled, through the diplomacy of the ring committee, to the supposed satisfaction of all concerned. The Juniors were well represented in all the plays, programs and athletics. Bowser Haislip, Kenneth “Popeye” Farmer, Von Moody, Jack Scott and Buddy Kegley made the boys’ basketball squad; while Helen Jor- dan, Mary Ryan and Frances Adair were out- standing with the girls. Several others play- ed on the junior varsity team. After attending school into their eleventh year our members have begun to branch out with different talents and select their coming vocations. We are looking forward proudly to numbering among the graduating class of 1942 from dear old P. IT S.l THE SUAVE SENIORS OE 1941 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS President Nichol Eskridge — Heritable Master of Ceremonies Vice-President Peggy Dobson — Amiable Assistant Master Secretary Geraldine Millirons — Resourceful Recorder of History in the Making Treasurer Dottie Leache — Billowy Banker and Broker Not only are these students our class leaders, but they have also been in- fluential in conducting the entire school.

Although experience we had none, our faces beamed with pride at the thought of acluallv entering high school. And so, with determined hearts, we decided to oust the term “rats”, used traditionally in referring to our likes, and toact like grown-ups. All one hundred and seventy of us confidently enrolled in the classes of Miss Louise Bon- durant, Mr. D. D. Farthing, Mr. Alderson Propps, and Miss Laura Dalton. After being tutored our Freshman year by these instruc- tors, we were ready to begin making history as Sophomores. We saw the Student Govern- ment tried for a year and made a part of the school activities. At this stage one hundred and sixteen of us courageously entered the home rooms of M iss Lynnwood Kinder, Mr. Warren Bowers, and Miss Mary Helen Crosswhite. Miss Crosswhite, however, was soon retired be- cause of ill health and Mrs. Elizabeth Dalton was chosen as the replacement. By this time all were conscientiously taking part in sports activities, clubs and student body affairs. Some among our numbers started journalistic careers by being on the “Oriole Chirps” staff and others were elected into the Hi-Y. We were also proud of Eugene Huff and Howard Golden who upheld the glory of P. H. S. by playing on the varsity football squad. Now we have all the confidence that be- fits Juniors. Here we are upper-classmen and the realization of that fact is really fun. Many of us made the varsity basketball and football teams and were pledged into such honor societies as the Hi-Y and Beta Club. Another triumph to our credit was the pre- sentation of the Junior play entitled “When Sally Comes to Town,” with many students launching stage followings. Miss Catherine Wood and Mr. Ralph O’Hair, who were with us only a year, proved incomparable as our Junior home room instructors. Anne Andring, a new-comer to our clan, has proved one of our greatest assets; and last but not least comes our respected principal, Mr. Edgar Pruet. He has helped Pulaski High School in many effective wa ys and we were happy to have him lead us during our Junior and Senior years. We now consider ourselves a little on the grown-up side because we are actually Seniors! After three years of hard work we are triumph- ant in our glory. Now we come to the leaders and their offices: Billie Kirchner was the State Hi-Y president; Johnny Wygal was captain of our football team; Louis Painter, captain of the boys’ basketball team; Dottie Leache, captain of the girls’ basketball team; Howard Golden and Hubert Groseclose were editor- in-chief and business manager, respectively, of our annual. Nichol Eskridge was elected president by a large majority. He has shown efficient leadership throughout our high school life and we are proud of all for which he stood and for what he meant to us. Peggy Dobson, who is so beloved in all our hearts, served very capably as our vice-president. She was al- ways ready to co-operate and was a helpful assistant in any task we undertook. Geral- dine Millirons was just what the word “sec- retary” implies. She has served efficiently and responsibly in her position and we will never forget her services. Dottie Leache, our basketball heroine, was selected as treasurer. She has instilled in our minds and hearts her qualifications of accuracy and humor which we will remember for years to come. These, because of their competence and ability, were chosen to head our class. Then came the rush. All of our Senior activities, such as our play, the banquet and dance, our Senior tea, and commencement exercises kept us very busy. The dishearten- ing fact which is in back of all our minds is that this is our last year at our dear Alma Mater. However, we believe that with our dogged determination we have made this year our best yet — and it was not in vain! FOR CONSPICUOUS SERVICE Anne Andring- This versatile lassie is a shining light, whether on the basketball court, in her classes, or in the performance of her many outside activities. Howard Golden — Our Editor-in-Chief is tops in football; as a writer and a leader; as well as a genuine good fellow. Edith Dickerson — Edith has been one of our most outstanding leaders, accepting her many responsibilities with a keen sense of duty; and always carrying her w r ork in an efficient manner. Hubert Groseclose — Hubert was the Oriole’s business manager, performing his many tasks capably and, in addition, maintaining a high scholastic average in his classes. Nichol Eskridge- A congenial fellow is our “Pres”; has school spirit in capital letters, and at all times willing to lend a helping hand at practically any task. Johnny Wygal As captain of our great foot- ball team, Johnny was great, too; and his un- dying energy and fun-loving personality prov- ed an invaluable asset to our Senior Class. THESE WERE OUTSTANDING WE WORKED AT A NUMBER OF THINGS BOYS’ H I-Y 4 ‘rp 1 0 create, maintain, and extend, through- out the school and community high stan- dards of Christian character,” is the motto and aim of the Boys’ Hi-Y. At the beginning of the year the members of the club held a meeting for the purpose of electing officers, with Nichol Eskridge being- chosen president; Hubert Groseclose, vice- president; Elmer Robinson, secretary 7 ; and Kermit Jackson, treasurer. Mr. Coiner, who sponsored the organization in ' 40, continued as the sponsor this year. Various activities of the club included the giving of a very successful “sports hop” presented jointly with the Girls’ Hi-Y follow- ing the Wytheville-Pulaski football game, attending the services of the various churches throughout the town in a body, making arrangements for flying the flag on the pole in front of school, and preparing Christmas baskets for needy families. Regular meetings were held twice a month, while the group en- joyed lunch once a month together in the school cafeteria. The local Boys’ Hi-Y Club is a unit of the national organization and is affiliated with the Young Men’s Christian Association.

We especially had reason to hustle about and get busy with our work because Billie Kirchner was State Hi-Y president and we wanted to give her a big send-off when she attended the November convention at Blacksburg. Along with her went Dotty Gilmer, secretary, Jean Edwards, Louise Dalton, Edith Dickerson, president, and Peggy Dobson, vice-president, as our representatives; and Miss Charlotte Booker, one of our co-sponsors. Letty Waugh, the treasurer, was unable to attend. Besides getting together at the Home Ec. Cottage for meetings, some of which were supper parties, we also gathered our clan to- gether one Sunday a month and attended the different churches in town. We shared our happiness with others too, not only by sending a Christmas basket to a needy family, but also by giving dances (The Sadie Hawkins dance was a howl!) that all the school kids could enjoy. At Miss Sanderson’s suggestion we contributed toward two valu- able school purchases: the trophy case and song slides for assembly. BY WAY OF PRINT iMA !”said Mary Student enviously, “How did you know exactly where to find that book? Why, it would have taken me a month to find it!” “That’s because I’m in the Library Club. You see, we spend our free periods in here learning such things and helping the librarian with her work.” “ Is Miss Akers your sponsor?” “Yes, and a good one, too. She teaches us how to take care of circulation, shelve the books that have been turned in, to read the shelves, or rather, to see that the books are in order on the shelves, and other things — even to make posters.” “If you do all that in your free period, what do you do on club days?” “Oh, we have programs, discuss recent books, learn about authors and once in a while, we have parties. I feel that it is one of the most interesting activities in which I could participate.” As illustrated by the two enthusiastic conversationalists this new club proved to be one of the most beneficial, and although mem- bership involved a great deal of work, it was thoroughly enjoyed and generally helpful. Programs presented during club meetings gave the members a chance to discuss books read, to learn something about the world of books and authors, and to become familiar with routines and principles of library service. Nita Austin as president, Myrtis Fagg as vice-president, Louise Dunlap as treasurer, and Naomi Kegley as secretary, served well in their responsible capacities. Members: Nita Austin, president; Myrtis Fagg, vice-president; Louise Dunlap, treasur- er; Naomi Kegley, secretary; Oreta Steward, Bess Dalton, Y T iolet Miles, Irene Akers, Anna Ruth Hixon, Mary Johnson, Grace Crawford, Frances Brallev and Stella Rigney.

BILLIE KIRCHNERand PEGGY DOBSON. AND THE STAGE E started off the Dramatic Club with a “bang” this year, beginning our work during October with the huge enrollment of 93 mem- bers. These were soon divided into commit- tees consisting of the acting group, costume, make-up and the business and lighting group. Officers chosen were Billie Kirchner, president; Nicky Meredith, vice-president; Ruth Rhea Landis, secretary; and Elizabeth Howard, treasure r. Our sponsors were Miss Eloise Caverlee and Miss Betty Hardy. The student body first became really conscious of our existence when we presented our initial effort, a Christmas Tableau, in four inspiring scenes. We also “dramatized” two other widely acclaimed hits entitled “Feudin’ in the Hills” and “Professor, How Could You.” Both proved to be hilarious comedies and went over well to packed audiences. We feel that our work and time has been well spent in this club and we have learned many beneficial things about the theatre field. Several interesting speakers visited us, in- cluding Caddall Harman, better known as “Doc” by the townspeople, who gave a very instructive demonstration on make-up. One of the members, Jack Scott, was chosen as the “guinea pig” by Mr. Harman, and was con- sequently quickly transformed from his youth into an old man. The end of the ' 41 school year has sub- tracted many of our number but we hope that they will be replaced by an even greater turnout in ’41 -’42.

Frances Allen of the Science Department, has based its organization upon that of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. It is a charter member of the Virginia Junior Academy of Science. In the gym during the year the club sponsored a very successful animal show which was enthusiastically received by most of the students. The club sent exhibits to the Virginia Educational Association meeting in Richmond where Patsy W hi taker received a prize for her collection of medicinal herbs grown in the state. Richard Quesenberry received honorable mention for his exhibit of fossils. The group also had a part in the science fair at the Junior Virginia Academy of Science. Programs were held every week during the school year stressing some phase of scientific work, or for discussing some ques- tion on natural history. The group also kept a collection of specimens in a show case in the science room. One of the most interesting of these objects is a tarantula, presented by a Pulaski grocery store. At the beginning of the year we elected the following officers: Clinton Jennings, director; Raymond Phibbs, president; George Gerberich, vice-president; Ruby Hearn, sec- retary; Billy Saunders, treasurer; Bob Mac- Adoo, curator; and Miss J. Frances Allen, sponsor. JUST PLANE FOLKS vv E want an Airplane Club!” That was the chorus that hummed among our adven- turous air-minded members of the cruder sex last year when a host of new clubs were un- dergoing organization. After some spirited persistency and persuasion a group was form- ed and invited Miss Elizabeth Blair to act as the sponsor. The club got off to a good start with members discussing new ideas and develop- ments in the field of aeronautics. The boys made models of various types of planes which proved their genius in designing planes. The club was so successful that they re- organized this year with Miss Blair playing her original role. Elmer Robinson was chosen president, with Bill Dudley as vice-president and Frank Akers as secretary-treasurer. The president presided over the meetings in which informal discussions were held in- tended to build up in the members a keener knowledge of aviation in general. Quiz pro- grams were also conducted, often using aero- nautical terms, familiarizing them further with the field. MODEL AIRPLANE CLUB— FRANK AKERS. FRANK BLANKENSHIP, NORMAN BYRD.

THERE WERE HONOR STUDENTS rn I HE Beta Club is one of the honorary or- ganizations of the school. The purpose of the club is promoting scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and character throughout the school, as well as in the individual. During the three years the group has been in function it has been very active in school projects. The first meeting this year was held soon after the beginning of the initial semester and Miss Lynnwood Kinder was voted as spon- sor. The following officers were also install- ed: Hubert Groseclose, president; Edith Dick- erson, vice-president; Geraldine Millirons, secretary; and Dorothy Leache, treasurer. Several programs were presented by the club in assembly, one of which was the in- stallation of 13 new members who were elected by the former group. The old members included: Nichol Esk- ridge, Peggy Dobson, Billie Kirchner, Kath- erine Jones, Nita Austin, Marian Bralley, Christine Fairchild; and the officers: Hubert Groseclose, president; Edith Dickerson, vice- president; Geraldine Millirons, secretary; and Dottie Leache, treasurer. At an installation of new members in assembly early in the school year, the follow- ing were elected new members: Edward Pagan, Charles Pauley, Frank Stafford, Bon- nie Jean Gallimore, Jean Edwards, Frances Adair, Lois Rosenbaum, Puddy Steger and Johnny Wygal. SUBTLE WI ELDERS OF THE SKILLET rp 1 HESE “Cultured Cooks” had a fine group this year. When they organized on Novem- ber 13, they elected Louise Dalton to lead them through the year as president; Jose- phine Ryan to assist as vice-president; and Polly Gatewood to do all the recording and handling of money in the capacity of treasurer. To this group Eleanor Imboden was added to serve as our publicity agent so that we might gain some recognition. The club was different from those in the past in that each member was allowed to de- cide the type of activity that she would work with. This turned out well, too; especially with Polly Gatewood, Mabel Johnson, Helen Freeman, and Bonnie Jean Gallimore, whose interest lay in embroidering, and with Eleanor Imboden who learned to crochet. Blanche Nelson also took up chocheting, while Ruth Otey, Violet Wooten and Marie White added some new clothes to their ward- robe. Thelma Allen, Gatha Lucas and Nancy Jackson were the other members of the club who volunteered to lend their services. Jose- phine Ryan and Louise Dalton were a great help to us, especially at our social meetings at night, since they had been studying personal- ity improvement and contributed much by way of enlightening us on the subject. Of course, there were cooking experiences, too. On November 4, five of the members had a wonderful time when they attended the County Home Economics Club Rally at Draper. Then in E ' ebruary we were hostesses to the Dublin and Draper clubs. The primary purpose of these functions was to bring the clubs closer together so that they might know each other and co-operate in a better and more desirable manner. HOME EC.

WE HAD A SPORTS CLUB ROM the expressed interest of both novice and experienced sportsmen, the Sports Club has taken its place for the second year among the organizations that have tended to diver- sify our school activities. It is the custom of the weekly meetings to have a combination of friendly social activ- ity and profitable discussion of sports in re- lation to the school. A purpose is held in view- — that of broadening the views of the members on sportsmanship, knowledge of sports, school spirit, and such related topics. The club has been very successful through the enthusiastic leadership of Anne Andring, who has been assisted by the other ofificers who are: Dotty Gilmer, vice-president; Billie Harris, secretary; and Buddy Kegley, treas- urer. Members were: Anne Andring, Josephine Andring, Douglas Aust, N. D.

WHICH BRINGS US TO A GREAT V E A R IN ATHLETICS lj OOTBALL season brought Coach John S. Coiner back to us for his second year as coach of Pulaski Hi. He wasted little time in get- ting down to hard work to round the squad of 30 hopefuls into condition. Coach Coiner was soon joined by Mr. John Davidson who was formerly a team mate of his at William and Mary. Mr. Davidson was an outstanding athlete at the Virginia school, playing guard on the football team while there. He took over the line candidates and soon developed a hard- charging forward wall. The boys had been training hard for sev- eral weeks when, on September 27, they stepped out to defeat Martinsville 6 to 0 in the first game of the season. Haislip, Massie, Golden, Huff, Shinault, Alley, Grantham, Jones, Wygal and the Vann brothers, in the first string unit, all had the satisfaction of being the first team ever to play a night football game in Pulaski. The next week found the Orange and Black team facing the Radford Bobcats on foreign soil. After a surprising first half, the Orioles started clicking and came out of the sun baked game on the victorious end of a 26 to 12 score, to make it two years in a row against our traditional grid rivals. The Pulaski boys kept the winning streak in order the following Friday night by trouncing Blacksburg 21 to 0 before a large crowd at Calfee Park. In the next game, with the Vinton Terriers, the Coiner-men encountered some tough luck and had to be satisfied with a 6 to 6 tie. ANOTHER GREAT GRID SEASON Coaches aar) Capti am Hard luck struck again the following week when the Orioles played the Narrows Green Wave to a scoreless tie. Pulaski put on bursts of power several times, only to be halted within the shadow of the goal posts. The Orioles jumped back into the win column again by defeating the Dublin Dukes, on a mud-soaked field, to a tune of 13 to 0. Dublin put up a gallant scrap, but they were no match for Pulaski’s heavier and more ex- perienced team. The winning streak was continued the following week when Pulaski’s powerful eleven, with two of their regulars on the bench, trounced Hillsville 24 to 0. The game featured t he play of Pulaski’s capable reserves who played most of the last half of the contest.

HERE’S WHY AND HOW Then came the big game of the year — the one that the coaches, players and fans had been pointing to all season. The Pulaski- Wytheville game. Hundreds of chilled fans braved the icy cold to see these two great rivals clash, and as the Orange and Black came out on the field, the crowd seemed to wake up and a tremendous cheer filled the air. It was Pulaski’s night all the way, and it proved to be a most exciting Homecoming with the Orioles rolling over their biggest rival, 21 to 6. The Coiner-coached boys took advantage of a bad punt by King of Wythe- ville in the early part of the first quarter, and with Grantham and Jones carrying the ball on consecutive line plays they advanced to the 5-yard line, where on the next play Grantham scored through the middle of the line for the first score of the game. Jones skirted the end and went over standing up for the extra point and Pulaski was out in front 7 to 0. Wythe- ville came back in the second quarter to net a score when King dropped a pass to Cregger, who starred for Wytheville, to set the stage for a touchdown. Crowgy finally went over from the 1-yard line, but Cregger was smother- ed for the extra point. In the next few minutes of the contest Jones, behind beautiful blocking, got loose for a 50-yard run. Gran- tham counted from the 2 -yard line and Jones went over for the point on a sneak. The teams battled evenly for a quarter when sud- denly Jones intercepted a pass and ran it back to the 18. Grantham made it a first on three tries through the line and Jones went over for the last touchdown of the night, with “Bruising Bent” Grantham plunging through a gaping hole in the middle of the line for the extra point, and score stood 21 to 6. It was a thrilling game with both teams looking good on offense. Pulaski’s whole team starred, with Captain Wygal’s kicking a bright spot of the game. Although the Orioles did meet defeat at the hands of the big Marion Maroons in the last game of the season , every one of their fans is proud of them. Captain Johnny Wygal proved his ability to lead the team to victory, and the whole eleven stood out as one of the most powerful ever assembled at P. H. S. THE JUNIOR VARSITY COMES THROUGH After the Varsity’s football season was well under way, line coach John Davidson issued a call for candidates for the Junior Varsity, which was introduced in the school last year. A huge turnout, even greater than was anticipated, was thinned out and soon con- densed into a hardworking unit that began to show promise with the added attention. The J. V. ’splayed only one game during the season, that being with Christiansburg’s varsity, but they furnished plenty of opposition in scrim- mages with the big “Oriole” team. The purpose of the small eleven was not to play many actual outside or regularly scheduled games, but to teach the younger boys the fundamentals of the grid sport and to see what material could be developed for future varsity squads. The boys tried hard under the capable tutoring of Coach Davidson, and you can count on seeing many of them really carrying the colors for P. H. S. next fall!

THE WINTER MONTHS BROUGHT BASKETBALL C OAOH John Coiner issued a call for varsity basketball candidates soon after football was over, for which the response was prompt, with around twenty small but enthusiastic and game youngsters turning out for the initial practice. The boys realized that they were on the short end of tremendous odds, w ith only one of their number, center Clyde Shinault, a new- comer, hitting the six-foot mark; but they dug in determinedly and after some time developed a fast breaking and deceptive offensive threat, under the patient tutoring of Coach Coiner, which allowed the quint to give a good account of themselves. The squad was at length reduced to ten members, and the remainder of the youths or- ganized into Junior Varsity and Midget teams under the guidance of Coach John Davidson. Captain Louis Painter, “Popeye” Farmer, “Shinny” Shinault, Bill Bouldin, Bowser Haislip, Von Moody and Hez Malone all saw action in the first contest of the season played on the Christ iansburg hardwoods. The Ori- oles dropped the contest to the count of 23-1 7, but they weren’t discouraged by the setback and continued to work all the harder in pre- paration for William Fleming’s formidable aggregation. The Coiner-men, though again falling victims to another much superior oppo- nent, by their consistent play proved to them- selves, as well as to their followers, that they had what it takes to develop into a winning five.

BASKETBALL CAPTAINS AND COACHES Back Row -MISSES JEAN BUNDY and BETTY HARDY, girls’ coaches; JOHN DAVIDSON and JOHN COINER, boys’ coaches. Front Row — LOLTIS PAINTER, captain of the boys’ varsity team; DOTTIE LEACHE, girls’ varsity captain; and BUDDY KEGLEY, captain of the junior varsity five. W ith Coach Coiner shifting the lineup considerably, the Orioles were “ready” for their arch rivals from across the river, the Radford Bobcats! The Orioles came through in splendid style, “Popeye” Farmer leading his team mates by scoring 13 points as they went on to register the first win of the season. When the final whistle sounded the score stood 23 to 9. The next game was a heart-breaker, Narrows eking out a 21 to 18 victory over our boys in a thrill-a-minute game. The two teams were evenly matched, the score being- close all the wav. Pulaski pulled up to with- in 3 points of Narrows’ lead, only to be halted abruptly by the referee’s whistle ending the game and their growing threat. The following week found the Orioles playing host to the Marion squad. After gaining a 5-point lead in the first quarter, the Maroons were never overcome, and came through to win, 21 to 15. Sweet revenge was gained later on in the season, however, when the Orange and Black team trounced the Marion quint 40 to 24. With Farmer, Shinault, Moody and Malone all sinking shots, the Orioles were never threatened, and their lead so decisive that Mr. Coiner had a chance to use some of his subs. Journeying across the mountain for the next game the Pulaski boys tasted defeat again at the hands of the strong Draper Blue Devils. Farmer and Captain Painter tried to keep their team in the running, but they came out on the short end of a 28 to 23 score. Henry Duncan’s long shots in the latter stage of the game were the deciding factor of the contest. Christiansburg again outscored our boys in their next game, winning 30 to 22. The little orange-clad team, nevertheless came back in full force to trounce a thoroughly outplayed team from Jackson Memorial to a tune of 29 to 7. Captain Painter and “Popeye” Farmer, both forwards, again led the scoring, garnering 8 points apiece. Revenge was gained again when ihe Orioles won over the big Narrows team by a score of 28 to 27 in a game that was packed with thrills to the finish. Leading 17 to 13 at the halt the Narrows “Green Wave” was outscored in the third quarter and Pulaski went into the lead. Although almost caught in the last quarter, the Coiner-men held the meager margin stubbornly and at length wound up on the long end of the count. Having an open date in the schedule the next Tuesday, the Pulaski boys played a practice game with the Boys’ Club. The game not meaning much, the coach had a chance to use his reserves and to see how they could stand up under fire.

JACK CALDWELL. Getting back on the regular schedule our boys again trounced Radford in fine style. The game featured the pass work of the Orioles and the eagle-eye shooting of Louis Painter. Scoring 15 points, “Popeye” Farmer led the way for the Orange and Black team in a close win over the Draper Blue Devils to make amends for a defeat handed them by the Draper team in a previous encounter. The score was 28 to 23, the same score by which the Orioles were defeated in the first clash with the valley five. The William Byrd aggregation from Vinton won over our team in the next game. The tali boys from the Magic City were too much for our quint and play culminated with the counting set at 40 to 25. Another Roanoke team, William Fleming, took the following game from the “songsters”, but not without a stiff battle. Painter was high scorer for the Orioles, count- ering 0 points. The Orioles got down to business and took a 30 to 12 victory away from Blacksburg the next Tuesday. W ' ith three games left to be played, as we go to press, the Pulaski high team hopes to boost their standing, by winning all three, to make it a fifty per cent average for the season. Diminutive Kenneth “Popeye” Farmer was the high scorer of the season, registering 135 points, and was followed by Captain Louis Painter with 88 points. This pair of forwards really know their way around on the hardwood, and are the envy of all tall men! Their lack of height makes it necessary for them to be“dead shots, ’’and they are just that. The whole team made a creditable show- ing, and although Captain Painter will be missed in ’41 -’42, such court artists as Farmer, Shinault, Haislip Malone, Moody, and an array of stars from the Junior Varsity, should furnish plenty of competition for the teams in ou r district. THE GIRLS PLAYED, TOO 1 ISS Jean Bundy’s call for candidates for the girls’ basketball squad was met with hearty enthusiasm as 80 aspirants turned out for the first practice of the 1940-41 season. Miss Bundy, who brought the Oriolettes through last year’s season with flying colors, was soon joined in directing the practice sessions by Miss Betty Hardy, assistant coach, who made her initial appearance at Pulaski this year via Farmville State Teachers College. The two mentors soon had the squad reduced to 25 members, including 4 letter bearers, and they were ready for their first clash of the season with the strong Christians- burg sextette. The girls making the first trip to C ' hris- tiansburg were: Captain Dottie Leache, Co- Captain Dotty Gilmer, Jane Ann Hogg, Puddy Steger, Frances Adair, Tiny Edwards, Margaret Hudson, Helen Jordan, Mildred In Letter Four (Left to right)- - DOTTY GILMER, AMABEL STAFFORD.

As we go to press the Oriolettes have play ed 12 games with 3 more remaining on the schedule, including the annualStudent-Faculty game, Jackson Memorial, and Blacksburg. Al- though not particularly outstanding in their contests, the team showed excellent training, good teamwork, and fine sportsmanship. Out of the 12 games played, the Oriolettes garner- ed wins over five opposing teams including Christiansburg, Jackson Memorial, Narrows, Bluefield, and Marion; while losing to William Fleming (twice), Narrows, Marion, Draper (twice) and Christiansburg. After playing guard for the first three OTHER V i press time our diamond artists were anticipating a fine baseball season on the basis of past records. Our 1940 team turned in a splendid season, but hopes are to better it this year with the seven letter men who are returning to bear the Orange and Black colors. They should have plenty of ex- perience to cope with the tough opposition coming along, with a small, but shifty in- field. Harold “Wrong Way” Smith was unanimously chosen to captain the 1941 squad, and the tall, good-natured receiver is just the one for the job. His pep behind the plate and his uncanny ability to dig ’em out of the dirt has earned him a good reputa- tion on the baseball field. The other letter men who will be turning out for another spring of campaigning for the Orioles include: Robert Alley, George Ger- games, Captain Dottie Leache was switched to forward where her brilliant play and high scoring stood out lor the remainder of the season. The slender Captain led her team mates in scoring for the year with 129 points (to date), being followed by Anne Andring who contributed 81 points. Co-Captain Dotty Gilmer’s consistent defense work stood out as a main factor in the team’s showing, along with Mildred Rippetoe, Mary Katherine Ryan and forward Helen Jordan. The seven Seniors whose play at Pulaski High has culminated are: Captain Dottie Leache, Co-Captain Dotty Gilmer, Anne Andring, Rut h Webb, Janie Via, and the Rippetoe sisters, Virginia and Mildred. These fair maidens will be sorely missed, but our hopes arise when we see the promising material that will be on hand next year to carry the good old Orange and Black on to victory! SPORTS berich, “Popeye” Farmer, Hensel Hawkins, Bowser Haislip and Hez Malone. Twelve games have already been put on the tentative schedule, with a number of practice games being played earlier in the season. () UR new coach, John Davidson, proved to us that he not only possessed ability on the football field, but that he had equal prowess by way of the court craze, basketball, in developing one of the finest junior varsity squads P. H. S. has had the occasion to boast in quite a while. The diminutive cagers, most of the time playing jointly with members of the Midget team, carried the torch steadily and without a let-down, to cop ten contests out of a possible twelve. The youngsters were at their best all the time, succumbing only to Draper and Christians- burg quints. IN THE LIGHTER VEINS September 2 — Registration of Sophomores.

OuR Girls’ Glee Club has become one of our most active and popular organizations, under the untiring efforts and wise direction of its talented originator, Mrs. Cldoe Carney. It has grown steadily since its organization in 1937 and now has a membership of 81 tune- ful young members, who contributed their melodic voices in harmony to various types of programs throughout the town, as well as in the school itself. The club, as a whole, has a remarkable record and has done much to build up music appreciation at these com- munity and school gatherings. In the fall they were invited to sing at the District Teacher’s meeting, and at the Radford State Teachers College. Their re- sulting presentation was well received and they in turn were invited to broadcast in Richmond in the spring. At Christmas the girls entertained at a OWENS. Seventh Row— NANCY MITCHELL, MRS. CHLOE meeting of the Rotary Club, singing a group of Christmas selections, and as a fitting climax to a happy and successful year, the group at- tended the State Festival at Richmond at which they sang “Sunset,” by Warrell, and “When the Roses Bloom,” by Reichardt. A smaller group of selected voices presented their version of “Absent,” by Metcalf and Lynes. Since its organization the club has had charge of all music for the Commencement activities and furnishes group singing and solos for those programs. Officers chosen at the beginning of the year included Dorothy Leache, president; Ruth Rhea Landis, vice-president; Elsie Weeks, secretary-treasurer; Charlene McNew, Elizabeth Vaughan, Charlotte Ray and Lucille Huff, assistant librarians.

First the whole staff would get out and scour the town for ads. “Mr. Snodhopper, I’m collecting ads for our school paper, 5()c an inch; $1.00 for two inches and—” “Naw, not interested. Get out!” he snarls. With undaunted heart and newly- composed courage, you continue your beat. “Mr. Coffup, the man that runs the only- other clothing store in town got an inch.” He looks at you slyly from the corner of his eye. “Weee-11-1, put me down for an inch and a half now get out!” And that’s the way it went until we got $35 worth of ads. Then a staff meeting would be called and finally- the material was collected, written, checked (censored), and typewritten. When copies had been printed, they had to be folded neatly- — (or otherwise) — 500 of them! Then — the catch — they had to be sold. When they- didn’t sell so good we promptly went into debt (hang your heads, students). But we didn’t stay there long. Of course all of you remember the hit, “Head- lines,” that we gave to raise money-. Many excellent ideas were obtained for our paper from the newpaper convention at Lexington attended by- Editor Anne Andring, Assistant Editor Nickie Meredith and Typist Sonny Eggert.

J ' E got off to an early start on the 1940-41 Oriole, in contrast to previous years, with the editor-in-chief, Howard Golden, and the bus- iness manager, Hubert Groseclose, being elect- ed during the spring of our Junior year. The purpose of this was so that they could plan their work ahead and get the annual out on time, something which had always failed to be done. Although they failed to announce their selections until the beginning of school this year, Howard and Hubert picked the staff and sponsors which included the following: Anne Andring, assistant editor; Jordan Howard and Roy Reese, photography editors; Louise Dalton, art editor; Nicky Meredith, mis- cellaneous editor; Lorcne Duncan and Billie Kirchner, literary editors; Walter Fanning and Nita Austin, typists, and Miss Charlotte Booker, sponsor, on the editorial staff; while the business staff numbered Perry Haley, Dorothy Gilmer, Dorothy Leache, Peggy Dobson, Puddy Steger, Nichol Eskridge and Foy Aust, sponsor. Our main objective, in addition to keep- ing within the time limit, was to cut expenses by moderately reducing the size of the book, reducing the number of pictures and dispens- ing with various other expenditures which were felt less necessary. By the unrelenting co-operation and energy of our annual group and all concerned we believe that we have successfully attained our set goals, but in so doing have not lowered the standard of former issues. We feel that the ’40-’41 Oriole which we have produced surpasses, without doubt, books put out by other schools the size of our Alma Mater and also all previous P. H. S. annuals.

The purpose of the organization is expressed well in its pledge: “As a member of the Girls’ Monogram Club, 1 promise faith- fully to uphold the standards of sportsman- ship, loyalty and fair play, by which I was admitted to this organization.” The five girls who make up this group are elected and initiated into it after fulfilling the qualifications. Membership, briefly, does not come automatically; only to those who have fought the hard battles, those who have obtained poise as losers as well as winners, and to those who have right to claim merits by their athletic prowess, do we award the distinction or wearing our “P”. With our five starlets, all possessing a great share of geniality, the Girls’ Monogram Club feels that it has truly been representative ol a ll that the school would have them stand for and that they have established themselves as capable Student leaders, setting a spotless example for those who look forward to attain- ing the cherished goals which they have al- ready reached. Memories of writing and adopting a con- stitution; of spending laborious hours selling our wares, candy, drinks and the like, in the icy cold, while our football heroes were suc- cessfully registering victory after victory for P. H. S.; of serving as unskilled cooks and hostesses to the Martinsville eleven; of spon- soring dances; and of resuming our trade of salesmanship at the basketball games — all these things that we accomplished and the work that we did will not be forgotten. LOYAL AND COURAGEOUS FUTURE SECRETARIES AT WORK Y E are met at the door of the typing room by a dimpled Miss Arnold, the sponsor. She knows that we have come to interview her on the Typing Club for the Annual and is on her very best behavior (and probably having told the now beaming class to follow her example, or she will knock them in the head). W ith a sparkling smile, she tells us that the club was organized for those who didn’t take typing so that they might learn the fundamentals. Lois Rosenbaum was chosen president, and Puddy Steger secretary and treasurer. 1 hen, as we turn to watch a member flounder aimlessly about on his machine, Sponsor Arnold quickly confiscates a candy bar upon which President Rosenbaum has been gnawing whole-heartedly. She just had time to take a large bite before we rejoined her. Yes, she tells us, due to the fact that there w r ere not enough typewriters to ac- commodate the number of stude nts wanting to join the club, those who came first were “first served.” At first one could see the students using the “peck” system, but after taking a few instructions from Miss Arnold, each member began mastering the touch method.
