THE GIRLS PLAYED, TOO 1 ISS Jean Bundy’s call for candidates for the girls’ basketball squad was met with hearty enthusiasm as 80 aspirants turned out for the first practice of the 1940-41 season. Miss Bundy, who brought the Oriolettes through last year’s season with flying colors, was soon joined in directing the practice sessions by Miss Betty Hardy, assistant coach, who made her initial appearance at Pulaski this year via Farmville State Teachers College. The two mentors soon had the squad reduced to 25 members, including 4 letter bearers, and they were ready for their first clash of the season with the strong Christians- burg sextette. The girls making the first trip to C ' hris- tiansburg were: Captain Dottie Leache, Co- Captain Dotty Gilmer, Jane Ann Hogg, Puddy Steger, Frances Adair, Tiny Edwards, Margaret Hudson, Helen Jordan, Mildred In Letter Four (Left to right)- - DOTTY GILMER, AMABEL STAFFORD.

Getting back on the regular schedule our boys again trounced Radford in fine style. The game featured the pass work of the Orioles and the eagle-eye shooting of Louis Painter. Scoring 15 points, “Popeye” Farmer led the way for the Orange and Black team in a close win over the Draper Blue Devils to make amends for a defeat handed them by the Draper team in a previous encounter. The score was 28 to 23, the same score by which the Orioles were defeated in the first clash with the valley five. The William Byrd aggregation from Vinton won over our team in the next game. The tali boys from the Magic City were too much for our quint and play culminated with the counting set at 40 to 25. Another Roanoke team, William Fleming, took the following game from the “songsters”, but not without a stiff battle. Painter was high scorer for the Orioles, count- ering 0 points. The Orioles got down to business and took a 30 to 12 victory away from Blacksburg the next Tuesday. W ' ith three games left to be played, as we go to press, the Pulaski high team hopes to boost their standing, by winning all three, to make it a fifty per cent average for the season. Diminutive Kenneth “Popeye” Farmer was the high scorer of the season, registering 135 points, and was followed by Captain Louis Painter with 88 points. This pair of forwards really know their way around on the hardwood, and are the envy of all tall men! Their lack of height makes it necessary for them to be“dead shots, ’’and they are just that. The whole team made a creditable show- ing, and although Captain Painter will be missed in ’41 -’42, such court artists as Farmer, Shinault, Haislip Malone, Moody, and an array of stars from the Junior Varsity, should furnish plenty of competition for the teams in ou r district.

Rippetoe, Donna Smith, Virginia Rippetoe, Mary Katherine Ryan, Annabelle Stafford, Anne Andring, Josephine Andring, Colleen Hall, Peggy Laughon, Alma June Collins, Polly Gatewood, Coaches Bundy and Hardy, and Managers Peggy Dobson and Ruth Rhea Landis. As we go to press the Oriolettes have play ed 12 games with 3 more remaining on the schedule, including the annualStudent-Faculty game, Jackson Memorial, and Blacksburg. Al- though not particularly outstanding in their contests, the team showed excellent training, good teamwork, and fine sportsmanship. Out of the 12 games played, the Oriolettes garner- ed wins over five opposing teams including Christiansburg, Jackson Memorial, Narrows, Bluefield, and Marion; while losing to William Fleming (twice), Narrows, Marion, Draper (twice) and Christiansburg. After playing guard for the first three OTHER V i press time our diamond artists were anticipating a fine baseball season on the basis of past records. Our 1940 team turned in a splendid season, but hopes are to better it this year with the seven letter men who are returning to bear the Orange and Black colors. They should have plenty of ex- perience to cope with the tough opposition coming along, with a small, but shifty in- field. Harold “Wrong Way” Smith was unanimously chosen to captain the 1941 squad, and the tall, good-natured receiver is just the one for the job. His pep behind the plate and his uncanny ability to dig ’em out of the dirt has earned him a good reputa- tion on the baseball field. The other letter men who will be turning out for another spring of campaigning for the Orioles include: Robert Alley, George Ger- games, Captain Dottie Leache was switched to forward where her brilliant play and high scoring stood out lor the remainder of the season. The slender Captain led her team mates in scoring for the year with 129 points (to date), being followed by Anne Andring who contributed 81 points. Co-Captain Dotty Gilmer’s consistent defense work stood out as a main factor in the team’s showing, along with Mildred Rippetoe, Mary Katherine Ryan and forward Helen Jordan. The seven Seniors whose play at Pulaski High has culminated are: Captain Dottie Leache, Co-Captain Dotty Gilmer, Anne Andring, Rut h Webb, Janie Via, and the Rippetoe sisters, Virginia and Mildred. These fair maidens will be sorely missed, but our hopes arise when we see the promising material that will be on hand next year to carry the good old Orange and Black on to victory! SPORTS berich, “Popeye” Farmer, Hensel Hawkins, Bowser Haislip and Hez Malone. Twelve games have already been put on the tentative schedule, with a number of practice games being played earlier in the season. () UR new coach, John Davidson, proved to us that he not only possessed ability on the football field, but that he had equal prowess by way of the court craze, basketball, in developing one of the finest junior varsity squads P. H. S. has had the occasion to boast in quite a while. The diminutive cagers, most of the time playing jointly with members of the Midget team, carried the torch steadily and without a let-down, to cop ten contests out of a possible twelve. The youngsters were at their best all the time, succumbing only to Draper and Christians- burg quints.
