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
