Third row: Mrs. Nancy Dobyns. T HE National Honor Society began its second year in Pulaski High School as a senior club. The members were chosen not only for their scholastic ability and offices held, but for leadership and character. The leaders for this year were as follows: President, Sarah Virginia Tice; Vice- President, John Lyons; Secretary, Helen Landis; and Treasurer, Martha Ann Board. They were ably assisted by the other five members. The club started off with many plans and ideas for the coming year. One of the first things it sponsored was a noon dance in the gymnasium. In December it gave two one-act plays for both the grades and the high school. Not forgetting the war effort, they filled Red Cross boxes to be sent overseas to children in liber- ated Europe. The new members were taken from the junior class and initiated near the end of school. They were honored with a supper held at the Woman ' s Club. page forty-five

This council serves a dual purpose. In conjunction with being a medium, it strives to improve our school generally. Some tan- gible evidence of the hard work of this group can be seen in the following list of things that the Student Council has sponsored: boys stationed at fire hose during drills, new reels for the fire hose, broken seats removed from the auditorium, many free assemblies, eight movies, a war bond campaign, selling of second hand books, letters to the boys in the service, and a trophy cabinet. Those are the physical gains alone. It is important to say something about the mental attitude of the school. Pulaski High has continued its tradition of good school spirit without wavering for an instant. This is more significant than all the other things of a physical nature. The annual Farmers Ball, sponsored by the Council, was an amazing success. Girls in gingham dresses and boys in plaid shirts and over-alls danced gaily in and out among the fodder and the straw. Because of the lively spirit that was prevalent, the dance will not be forgotten by any of those who attended. The Council consists of all club presidents and home room representatives. The President, Albert Smith, and the Vice-President, John Lyons, were elected by the student body, while the Secretary, Helen Rorrer, and the Treasurer, Martha Ann Board, were elected by the Council. Miss Clara Mae Bolt was its most capable sponsor. The success of this year’s council can be directly attributed to the excellent cooperation between the faculty and the students. page forty-four

" Its purpose is to promote scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and character. Our sponsor was Miss Lynnwood Kinder. Our officers were Helen Landis, president; Ben Lake Critzer, vice-president; Georgia Tickle, secretary; and John Lyons, treasurer. During the year the following new members were taken into the club: Jim Carras, Jean Anne Gibson, Eleanor Hall, Betty Jo Hanks, Benny Jones, Jean Larson, Ann Laughon, Pauline Mooney, C. W. Stewart, Nealda Stewart, Doro- thy Stoots, and Elizabeth Stoots. The Beta Club gave two Thanksgiving baskets to indigent families this year. On March 1st, the club sponsored a stunt program in which the four classes of the high school participated. An award of five dollars was given to the senior class for presenting the best stunt, which traced the American dance from its earliest beginning to the present day. The Beta Club must also be given credit for the delightful Kiddie Dance which was held in the gymnasium during April. page forty-six
