TUMBLING ABOUT JO ENABLE those boys with exceptional ability to improve their their tumbling technique beyond the level of achievement found possible in physical education classes was the goal of the Tumbling Club. Their exhibitions given at the basketball games were the outstanding highlights of their first successful year. One of the featured exhibitions was the performance at the Faculty Game. It included high jumps, long jumps, head springs and somersaults of various kinds. The little fellows, especially, won the admiration of the entire audience by their exceptionally fine displays of tumbling. Their head dives sent thrills through the grandstand, causing wave after wave of applause. Frosty ( " Doug " ) Aust furnished the fun with his clowning, ending his antics by throwing a bucket of confetti on the crowd. The climax of the show was the Club forming a " V, " with each person standing on his head. The chief aim of the club was to promote a tumbling carnival for the purpose of raising funds to purchase additional gymnasium equipment and tumbling apparatus.

O THE announcement that boys, as well as girls, could join the Home Economics Club, the boys tell over each other trying to be the tirst ones to the cottage. Miss Estelle Whitehead and Miss Nell Hall were waiting to teach them what they wanted to know (about Home Economics, of course!) At the first meeting about seventy students attended, a number too large for one club. If was decided fo divide the club into two groups; Miss Hall taking the forty-five girls, while Miss Whitehead undertook the difficult task of training the twenty-three boys in household duties. The boys elected the capable Jimmy Henry as their president, with George Gerberich assisting them as vice-president, and Barton Case as secretary-treasurer. Erma Harris was the girls ' efficient president; with Doris Howlett, vice-president; Helen Freeman, secretary, and Helen Black, treasurer. This cheerful group of girls took up, at the beginning of the year, a general study of personality. Later they divided into two groups, each choosing the group in which she wished to work; which were: manners, grooming and cooking. The " rough-and-tumble " bunch of boys, who due to their bashfulness, chose to call themselves by the more masculine, independent and aloof name of Bachelors ' Club, meekly took Miss Whitehead ' s advice on the subjects of cooking, selection of clothing, modern manners, and, yes, even sewing! ...

ON THE TRAIL fj £AKS KNOB, here we come! " shouted a group of outdoor v enthusiasts as they pushed their way through dense under- brush and briars, scaled steep precipices, and tumbled down rocky ravines in their efforts to follow the leader, Curtis Jordan, the " Daniel Boone " of Pulaski High School. They were off again on one of their expeditions which was to make 1942 a red letter year in the history of the Hiking Club. This club, first organized in the fall of 1940 as an extra- curricular group who enjoy scouting the surrounding area, was co-sponsored by Miss Elizabeth Painter and Miss Constance Christopher. No dues were required, nor did they select officers in their unique club. They dispensed with all the usual formalities, conven- tions and shackles which usually surround club life, making their sole requirement for membership a zest for the more rugged life spent in nature ' s woodlands.
