YOUR PRESIDENTS cA WAS a wonderful feeling to be reporting to High School for the first time, wasn ' t it? There you were, fresh from a frolicking summer of tranquil days taken for granted. It took a week or more to adjust yourselves to the new schedules but finally you were settled. New acquaintances, exclamations and the criticism of your teachers were heard everywhere. But you settled down at last and entered into the " spirit " with the upperclassmen. This year has been quite a full one for fun; full of disappointments, small fears, happinesses and pleasures. You are already visualizing yourselves as Sophomores and thinking of the happy days to come. You Freshmen are glad to find yourselves leaving the first year due to a number of reasons. One of the main reasons is, of course, the fact that you ' re no longer the " greenies " of high school. You ' re leaving this traditional characteristic for the on-coming Freshman. It wasn ' t so bad, though. Gee, it was fun to be able to make plenty of noise and to change classes, etc. But you didn ' t like the idea of the separate assemblies, this making you feel left-out and forgotten by the upperclassmen. But you soon became accustomed to the situation-at- hand and didn ' t mind so much. Now, in looking back, you are already saying, " Gee, it was fun! " Although you may not have seemed important to others, you have a big advantage over the Seniors; for example, you still have three bright years ahead and they only have their memories. The Freshmen homeroom teachers for this year were: Miss Elizabeth Painter, Miss Elizabeth Blair, Miss Jean Bundy, Miss Laura Dalton and Miss Clara Schultz. - PAGE SIXTEEN

YOUR SOPHOMORE OFFICERS OU WERE Sophomores; some wise and some foolish. Rejuvenated by summer, you began your second year of high school. You found that hard work was needed and that being Sophomores wasn ' t a " cinch ' as someone had said. Having been under the efficient leadership of Mr. Walter Griggs, Miss Lynwood Kinder, Miss Gerry Mertz and Miss Patsy Fletcher, you entered into the struggle with renewed strength and courage with the light of determination going before you, urging you to conquer and emerge victorious. Javelins of criticism have been hurled your way, with great bombs of tests exploding in your faces. Now all that is behind you and you ' re finding yourselves ready to say " good-by " to the sophisticated life and to be quite willing to become the " jolliest of all Juniors. " Being a Junior Is certainly something to be looking forward to throughout the coming year. Judging from the things that you have already accomplished in your high school career, the future looks bright and hopeful for you. In the scholastic, athletic and social matters, you have acquired quite an enviable record this year and won the rights of going on as Juniors here in Pulaski High. The most worthy leaders of the great class of 1944 have proved their ability to lead, with a great deal of efficiency, the fun-loving sophs. The honorable President was Alex Haller, who was helped by the vice- president, Bill Miller. The minute-keeper, otherwise called the secretary, was none other than Don Duncan, and the treasurer was Randolph Crockett, in charge of all their money. May you be highly rewarded for studiousness, accomplishments and perseverance. Keep up the good work! PAGE SEVENTEEN
