E VERY club has to have some purpose to merit its being; and " to forward athletics and sportsman- ship in Pulaski High School " is the outstanding purpose of the Boys ' Monogram Club. The organization includes all Pulaski High boys who have been awarded letters for outstanding athletic achievements, representing the three major sports: football, basketball, and baseball. The Boys ' Monogram Club began the year with only two old members, Bates Pauley and Wesley Vaughan, and with the loss of the former sponsor. Surmounting all these difficulties the club was reorganized soon after football season, these boys who had earned the letter " P " on last year’s basketball and baseball teams and those who had received them for service on this year ' s football team were invited into the organization. Fifteen new members were taken in after the usual initiation. The club was under the new and able sponsorship of Mr. Raymond Cure and the officers are: Wesley Vaughan, President; Bill Baker, Vice-President; Dow Owens, Secretary; Bates Pauley, Treasurer.

Margaret Watts. I HE members of this club are composed of the more athletically inclined of the fairer sex in • our High School. They proudly wear their ' ' P ' s ' " not only because they denote distinction as athletes, but also because they represent the fact that they have come through the battle good losers as well as winners and love the game — not the glory; realizing full well the true meaning of good sportsmanship. The good condition of the financial status was accomplished by hard work and zealous effort. There was not a football game at which one could fail to spot a member, laden with numerous and various sorts of " goodies, " shouting her wares for a very worthy cause. These ambitious lassies also sponsored several of the dances given during the year. The group was led by Ellen Eskridge as president, ably assisted by Elizabeth Howard, vice-president. " Catchy " Hinton was an efficient secretary and Sara Virginia Tice was the quite capable treasurer. The Club was well guided by the sponsors, Misses Elna Spradlin and Luciel Coggiano.

X HILE the 1943-44 football team had only a fair record, winning 2, losing 4, and tying I, the ” ’ boys, however, are to be commended for their constant display of good sportsmanship. The boys began practice as usual the first of September. With only four lettermen back, the boys ' future looked dark. Then Coach Raymond Cure loomed over the horizon and with his patience and expert coaching, and determination on the part of the boys, a very formidable team was organized. The boys were hit hard during the season when Uncle Sam needed Co-Captains Bill Miller and Jake Matheney for his teams. Much excitement and rivalry was renewed with our games with Wytheville. This year two games were played and the scores were totaled determining the victor and winner of the victory cup. Pulaski beat Wytheville by a close 7-6 the first game and when we journeyed to Wytheville, the game ended in a 7-7 tie, thus giving the victory cup to Pulaski. If the boys in the future have the determination, courage and good sportsmanship of the boys of this year ' s team, our future teams will have the makings of a successful team. Oct. 1 Pulaski . .
