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.

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.

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. Miss Jane Akers, sponsor.
