The football letters were presented at a banquet given for Bill Dudley by the University Alumni Association on February fourteenth at the Maple Shade Inn. The regular starting line-up which began the Martinsville game received letters in addition to Buddy Kegley, Ohmer Crowell and Manager Frank Moore. Soon after the football season ' s close, basketball swung into the spot and carried the added event of the fairer sex ' s entrance onto the floor of athletic contests. Headed by Captain " Popeye " Farmer and B uddy Kegley, forwards; Groseclose, center; and a Miller-Haislip combination as guards, the Pulaski Varsity climbed the class B " conference ladder with ten wins and four losses. The reliable and alert second team presented: Franklin Newsom, Jack Caldwell and Douglas Aust, forwards; Von Moody, George Gerberich and Hencil Hawkins, as guards. The season ' s games were composed of seventeen games, fourteen of which were conference games with the best school teams in this area including William Fleming, William Byrd, Christiansburg and Blacksburg. The quick-passing Orioles were defeated only by Fleming and Christiansburg. The former was the winner of the class " B " tournament. The schedule of the Orioles was climaxed by their entrance in the Southwest Basketball Conference held at Roanoke over the week-end of March seventh and eighth as well as by the Faculty Game in which " Potts " Kegley made six points for the overawed and needy faculty.

LET’S GO, TEAM CHEERLEADERS Catherine Hinton, Dewitt Creger, " Rutty " Ryan, " Tiny " Edwards, Frank Akers and competitive football in their hearts and minus the injured Guy Whitaker, the Orioles defeated the Narrow ' s Green Wave to the tune of 6-0 in a moment when even water boy Alfalfa " hoarsed " his lungs as he watched quarterback Buddy Kegley intercept a Narrows’ pass which began the Pulaski drive to victory. The William Fleming Game retains a place in the mind of every Pulaski fan as the tops in Oriole sportsmanship. It was also the occasion when fiery Jack Caldwell and active end Douglas Alley broke into the Pulaski line-up to help keep a weighty team on its home ground to the score of 7-0. The " Orange and Black " clearly displayed their fight and caused the Roanoke team to quake and requake by the brilliant plays and fine teamwork of the Oriole backfield and line. By October twenty-six with a record of two wins and two losses the Orioles attacked William Byrd on the Calfee turf and went down to the disheartening score of 27-0. Marion, the team with the band, " entered into contest " with Coach Long ' s team and despite a series of completed passes on the part of the Orioles they squeezed through with the large end of the horn on a score of 7-6. That bitter day of November seventh is the memorable date Pearisburg failed to use their Red Devils forcefully enough to thaw themselves out and keep the Orioles, reinforced by the " debut " of heavy-set Pulaski tackier Crowell, from a victory of 6-0. The Maroon Wytheville team at their own field on November fourteenth returned to their dressing room at the half trailing 7-6; they came out, and returned at the end of their season with a triumph of 12-7, with a trophy, and with the knowledge that however they might have outscored the arrogant and courageous Orioles they could PAGE FIFTY-ONE

Our Coaches MISS JEAN BUNDY and MR. J. WARD LONG The active and energetic J. V. ' s were lead by Captain Douglas Aust and supported by Charles Watts, Alec Haller, Harrell Tester, Sam Lowman, Bates Pauley, Stephen Roustio, Charles Hiltzeimer, David James, Randolph Crockett and Billy Richardson. Their games with Radford, Marion and Christiansburg displayed promise for these younger basketball athletes. Basketball letters were awarded to the first string varsity line-up and to Jack Caldwell, Bill Groseclose, Barton Case, Manager; and to Carl Smith, J. V. manager. The cheerleaders, enthusiastic, energetic, did themselves proud ' throughout the athletic year at the home of the Orange and Black with their clever methods of leading cheers. They not only had a yell for the home lads and lassies, but before the echo of that yell died they were on their toes with one for the visitors. A handshake is deserved by the able head-cheerleader, R uff y ’ Ryan, and her animated assistants, Catherine Hinton, Dewitt Creger, Tiny " Edwards and Frank Akers. Miss Jean Bundy, an alumna of Madison College, and Coach Ward Long, a graduate of Bridgewater College, led the year ' s sports. Mr. Long, who managed football from 34- 38 and actively indulged in basketball and baseball at his " Alma Mater, " found his first year a successful and pleasant one. Miss Bundy encountered a rush of feminine joy over her coaching of the year ' s Girls ' basketball team. During college she took part in hockey, tennis, basketball, swimming and majored in mathe- matics and physical education. Early in the season baseball promised to have a lively schedule with anticipated contests againsi last year ' s bitter rivals, Dublin and Draper, with other games against Radford, Narrows, and probably Hillsville.
