Second Row: Charles Hiltzheimer, Norman Byrd, Blaine Huff, Carlton Tester, Carlos Melton, William Walls, James Slaydon, Kenneth Stafford, Billy Combs. TAKING OFF EEP ' EM FLYING, " the motto of our country ' s air force, was also adopted as the motto of our own Airplane Club. Miss Elizabeth Blair was always " flyin ' around " so who, but she, could be the sponsor of this club? Their purpose was to promote more interest in aviation through modeling and discussion. At each meet- ing discussions were led by a member of fhe club. The boys planned visits to the local airport, but these were thwarted, due to the closing of the field by the government. However, they had a model contest, some entering " nifty " little gasoline-motor jobs. This is a comparatively new club, but this year they had a membership of twenty, ably led by John Lyons, who served in the capacity of president. Assisting him were: Blaine Huff, vice-presi- dent; Bill Dougherty, secretary, and Norman Byrd, treasurer. PAGE FORTY-ONE

SEARCHING SCIENTISTS HE Roy Chapman Andrews Museum Club of Pulaski High School was originated " three years ago and was named for the director of the Museum of Natural History in New York. The aim of this club was to promote science instruction and to aid those interested in scientific achievements. This club met once a week and discussed facts concerning or connected with science in any way. This enthusiastic group was composed of about two dozen students who anxiously took advantage of the opportunities of the club. They participated in programs and learned valuable things about science under their sponsor, Miss Patsy Fletcher. Each member chose a project and worked on it throughout the year. The officers leading this organization were: Patsy Whitaker, president; Alex Haller, vice-president; Ellen Eskridge, secretary, and Jane Ann Hogg, treasurer. At a meeting last year in Richmond, the Museum Club of Pulaski High School was honored by having the vice-president of the Virginia Junior Academy of Science selected from its club. Patsy Whitaker, local president, was elected to this newly formed state office for the year 1941-42. This year ' s conference was held in Roanoke from May eighth to the tenth.

WATCH THE BIRDIE i ET ' S organize a Photography Club this year ! ' 1 " We want a Photo Club, " was the cry from students when they were asked to offer suggestions for the formation of a new club. So, a Photo Club was organized under the sponsorship of Miss Mary Helen Brosius, an ardent candid-camera fan. The purpose of this newly formed club was to make better " snaps, " to lighten the darkness which always draws near when the " dark-room " is mentioned, and to profit by the other person ' s mistakes. Under the guidance of Ben Knapp as president, and Denny Landis as vice-president, the club advanced rapidly. Of course, these are always notes to be kept and the " small " matter of money to be looked after. Lillian Keister was elected to fill the office of secretary-treasurer. Miss Brosius was used as " guinea-pig " when the " snaps " were taken. She was " shot " from every angle. Other than the officers, the following fans were enrolled: Charles Byrd, Dick Miller, LeRoy Sellner, Tommy Dickerson, Eleanor Imboden, Bonnie Gallimore, Polly Gatewood, Ruth Nelson, Eloise Covey, Gray Farmer, James Webb, William Umberger, Tommy Silcox, Nellie McCall and Ruth Cummings.
