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.

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 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.
