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.

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.

MUSIC MAKERS O-RE-MI-FA " — was the echo that rang out of the school every Monday afternoon for nine months. The voices belonged to those sweet " chirpers ' who call themselves the Girl ' s Glee Club of Pulaski High School. They made an excellent beginning this year by choosing as their very capable director, the talented Miss Frances Hoback. These girls were most popular and active in school gatherings, bringing their bright and merry tunes into many events. Early in the first term the girls sang in assembly to an appreciative audience of high school students. The occasion was one of patriotism, the program being centered around that subject. The Glee Club sang " America ' s Message " under the direction of Miss Hoback and accompanied by Charlene McNew. The club has completed its fifth year. It was organized in 1937. Since then the membership has grown to forty in number. They wisely chose as this year ' s president, Charlene McNew. Other officers included Patsy Miller, vice-president; Lucille Huff, secretary; Colleen Hall, treasurer; and Selena Evans, librarian. PAGE FORTY-SIX
