TO MAINTAIN HIGH STANDARDS 7his CLUB was the first to reorganize this year. Their officers were: Pafsy Miller, president; Helen Jordan, vice-president; Eleanor Imboden, secretary, and Lois Rosen- baum, treasurer. Having been deprived of both their sponsors by Dan Cupid they immediately chose Miss Mary Helen Brosius and Miss Nell Hall to guide them. Throughout the year the girls attended church in a body once a month. The first act of the group was to give a dance in the gym after the Homecoming game with Marion on October 31. Delegates were sent to the state convention at Martinsville and they came back full of new ideas and plans for the club for the year. The delegates were Patsy Miller, Helen Jordan, Jackie Seagle and Tiny Edwards. Contributing a Christmas basket closed their activities before the holidays. In February, a Mock Faculty was presented in the auditorium, with the teachers " seeing themselves as others see them! " Next they began preparations for their annual Mother- Daughter banquet. This group has worked with the boys ' group by holding Joint meetings; and they helped present a plaque to the school in memory of John Davidson.

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
