TOO LITTLE TOO LATE (A former student sees another High School graduation coming to a close and writes on school spirit’’ for those who follow.) In a vision of the future Just a few short weeks ahead, I see a line of seniors And toward a stage they tread. Tis commencement time, I know it, For the teachers seated there. And the crowd is finally settling, There is not an empty chair. A; last I see diplomas And each Student ' s given one; I expect a shout of joy, Cause it ought to be some fun. But the Seniors, they seem silent, As I try their thoughts to trace; It seems they’re losing something By expressions on their face. Yes. I know now what they ' re thinking, ' Cause I had the same thoughts too; And I bet when you ' re a senior These thoughts will come to you. They were all about a building, Second home to me, I guess. And I loved it bout as dearly, Twas my dear ole P. H. S. I felt a true school spirit As it really ought to be, But alas, I could not use it For it came too late for me. And so to you my vision goes; I send it in advance. I trust you ' ll use school spirit While you still have the chance. Yes, school spirit ' s yelling louder, When your team is far behind; And it holds you spellbound minutes As your fullback smacks that line. It sends you to your toes in joy As your tackles plow away, And as a pass is caught, you gasp, A little center saved the day. This is good ole true school spirit The finest type I know. But it is only one good form; There are others we can show. You should really work your heads off To always be aware, That in classes as in football The game should be played fair. The right and wrong you surely know; You ve heard it everywhere; And you know a School s no better Than the students going there. Is your conduct what it ought to be? Do you try at daily task? Do you do your best at anything? These questions you should ask. And to them, I would add a plea — That on graduation day, That you could look upon the past And in truth sincerely say: Ole school, I ve tried to honor you; I hope young folks will see, I left to them a better school Than someone else left me.

YOUR STUDENT COUNCIL STUDENT COUNCIL Sitting Down: Colleen Hall, Helen Jordan, Alma June Collins, Elizabeth Turner, Frank Akers. Standing: Barton Case, Dewitt Creger, Margaret Brookman, Douglas Alley, Miss Whitehead, Sponsor; Raymond Phibbs, Elsie Weeks, Alex Haller, Tiny Edwards, Jane Ann Hogg, Ruth Cummings. HE STUDENT COUNCIL, formed three years ago, got underway immediately this year. Robert Cecil, who was elected president in the spring of 1941, was in charge of book sales at the beginning of school. This proved to be a great help to the students who were able to buy second-hand books at the school library. Unfortunately " Buzz " Cecil found it necessary to resign his extra-curricular activities because of an over- crowded schedule. After his resignation in September, another election was held. Eleanor Imboden, Elsie Weeks, Douglas Alley and Billy Groseclose were the candidates. Douglas Alley received a majority vote on the second ballot. The other officers elected by the Council itself were: Barton Case, vice-president; Elsie Weeks, secretary, and Alma June Collins, treasurer. Miss Estelle Whitehead, the Council ' s sponsor, brought many new ideas to the group. It instigated a new dance called the " Farmers ' Ball, " the first of its kind ever held in Pulaski High School. The Council was responsible for the forming of clubs at activity period as well as for sponsoring the electing of the Junior and Sophomore Classes ' officers. The membership of this organization was composed of home-room representatives and of members selected from each of the important clubs. Those from the home rooms were: Dewitt Creger, Barton Case and Frank Akers, Seniors; Jane Anne Hogg, Alma June Collins and Raymond Phibbs, Juniors; Lois Kegley, Alec Haller, Ruth Cum- mings and George Edwards, Sophomores; Helen Landis, Westly Vaughon, Margaret Brookman and Emerson Knapp, Freshmen. The representatives from the various clubs were: Tiny Edwards, Girls ' Hi-Y; Ben Knapp, Boys ' Hi-Y; Elizabeth Turner, Girls Monogram; Helen Jordan, Beta Club; Elsie Weeks, Glee Club; and Colleen Hall, Oriole Chirps. " A delegation was sent to Virginia High School in Bristol and to William Fleming High School at Roanoke in order to compare our school and its student government with that of these other sch®ols. Many helpful ideas were obtained and a better understanding of other schools was established. Underwriting additional copies of " The Oriole " was another activity the council sponsored in the interest of the school. PAGE THIRTY-FIVE
