DOTTY GILMER, RUTH WEBB, PUDDY STEGER, ANNE ANDRING, DOTTIE LEACHE, MISS JEAN BUNDY, Sponsor. rp 1 HL Girls’ Monogram Club is one of the most active, and membership the most honor- ary, of any of the other groups at Pulaski High. 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

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.

FUTURE SECRETARIES AT WORK Y E are met at the door of the typing room by a dimpled Miss Arnold, the sponsor. She knows that we have come to interview her on the Typing Club for the Annual and is on her very best behavior (and probably having told the now beaming class to follow her example, or she will knock them in the head). W ith a sparkling smile, she tells us that the club was organized for those who didn’t take typing so that they might learn the fundamentals. Lois Rosenbaum was chosen president, and Puddy Steger secretary and treasurer. 1 hen, as we turn to watch a member flounder aimlessly about on his machine, Sponsor Arnold quickly confiscates a candy bar upon which President Rosenbaum has been gnawing whole-heartedly. She just had time to take a large bite before we rejoined her. Yes, she tells us, due to the fact that there w r ere not enough typewriters to ac- commodate the number of stude nts wanting to join the club, those who came first were “first served.” At first one could see the students using the “peck” system, but after taking a few instructions from Miss Arnold, each member began mastering the touch method.
