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

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.

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
