Appearing in the Inserts — HUBERT GROSECLOSE (top) Business Manager, HOWARD GOLDEN, Editor-in-Chief. J ' E got off to an early start on the 1940-41 Oriole, in contrast to previous years, with the editor-in-chief, Howard Golden, and the bus- iness manager, Hubert Groseclose, being elect- ed during the spring of our Junior year. The purpose of this was so that they could plan their work ahead and get the annual out on time, something which had always failed to be done. Although they failed to announce their selections until the beginning of school this year, Howard and Hubert picked the staff and sponsors which included the following: Anne Andring, assistant editor; Jordan Howard and Roy Reese, photography editors; Louise Dalton, art editor; Nicky Meredith, mis- cellaneous editor; Lorcne Duncan and Billie Kirchner, literary editors; Walter Fanning and Nita Austin, typists, and Miss Charlotte Booker, sponsor, on the editorial staff; while the business staff numbered Perry Haley, Dorothy Gilmer, Dorothy Leache, Peggy Dobson, Puddy Steger, Nichol Eskridge and Foy Aust, sponsor. Our main objective, in addition to keep- ing within the time limit, was to cut expenses by moderately reducing the size of the book, reducing the number of pictures and dispens- ing with various other expenditures which were felt less necessary. By the unrelenting co-operation and energy of our annual group and all concerned we believe that we have successfully attained our set goals, but in so doing have not lowered the standard of former issues. We feel that the ’40-’41 Oriole which we have produced surpasses, without doubt, books put out by other schools the size of our Alma Mater and also all previous P. H. S. annuals.

OUR CURRENT ACTIVITIES WERE Many of the students who received the issues of the Oriole Chirps with so much enthusiasm, probably did not realize the amount of work behind each issue. First the whole staff would get out and scour the town for ads. “Mr. Snodhopper, I’m collecting ads for our school paper, 5()c an inch; $1.00 for two inches and—” “Naw, not interested. Get out!” he snarls. With undaunted heart and newly- composed courage, you continue your beat. “Mr. Coffup, the man that runs the only- other clothing store in town got an inch.” He looks at you slyly from the corner of his eye. “Weee-11-1, put me down for an inch and a half now get out!” And that’s the way it went until we got $35 worth of ads. Then a staff meeting would be called and finally- the material was collected, written, checked (censored), and typewritten. When copies had been printed, they had to be folded neatly- — (or otherwise) — 500 of them! Then — the catch — they had to be sold. When they- didn’t sell so good we promptly went into debt (hang your heads, students). But we didn’t stay there long. Of course all of you remember the hit, “Head- lines,” that we gave to raise money-. Many excellent ideas were obtained for our paper from the newpaper convention at Lexington attended by- Editor Anne Andring, Assistant Editor Nickie Meredith and Typist Sonny Eggert.

The purpose of the organization is expressed well in its pledge: “As a member of the Girls’ Monogram Club, 1 promise faith- fully to uphold the standards of sportsman- ship, loyalty and fair play, by which I was admitted to this organization.” The five girls who make up this group are elected and initiated into it after fulfilling the qualifications. Membership, briefly, does not come automatically; only to those who have fought the hard battles, those who have obtained poise as losers as well as winners, and to those who have right to claim merits by their athletic prowess, do we award the distinction or wearing our “P”. With our five starlets, all possessing a great share of geniality, the Girls’ Monogram Club feels that it has truly been representative ol a ll that the school would have them stand for and that they have established themselves as capable Student leaders, setting a spotless example for those who look forward to attain- ing the cherished goals which they have al- ready reached. Memories of writing and adopting a con- stitution; of spending laborious hours selling our wares, candy, drinks and the like, in the icy cold, while our football heroes were suc- cessfully registering victory after victory for P. H. S.; of serving as unskilled cooks and hostesses to the Martinsville eleven; of spon- soring dances; and of resuming our trade of salesmanship at the basketball games — all these things that we accomplished and the work that we did will not be forgotten. LOYAL AND COURAGEOUS
