ONE INTIMATE WORD ABOUT THESE SENIORS w E, the Seniors of 1941, made our debut to Pulaski High on the opening of school in the fall of 1937. 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!
