SENIOR CLASS HISTGRY
Listen dear Seniors and you will hear
Of the feats and failures of the past four years
So here now is a quick review
Of what you did and what you'll do.
ln Junior High we knew we'd make a hit
When at last in Gadsden High we'd sit,
Our Freshman year revealed to us
Our Stunts and talents weren't quite good enough.
Then to our Sophomore year we flew
With Algebra problems we couldn't do,
But in our eyes was still that gleam
For Stunt and Talent Show, we started to scheme.
To win first prize and show the rest
That we Sophies could still be best.
Too bad our theme, "South of the Border"
By the iudges was ruled out of order.
So we came to those happy Junior days
With chemistry and high schools plays
But here's what really made us sing
We finally received our high school ring.
Our Junior float would have taken first prize
But alas the judges failed to arrive.
Stunt Night was eliminated, but we survived
Still somehow our talent couldn't be revived.
And so again, we did not place -
Once more we kept our smiling face.
And now the day arrived at last
We found ourselves in the Senior Class.
But even then we were not through
For there was still plenty of work to do.
We sweat and strain in English Xll
Or else in Physics lab we delve.
One proud accomplishment we did attain
We passed our goal in the Magazine Campaign.
This year our talent was iudged second best
But our Homecoming float beat all the rest.
We were glad to have Jennie as Homecoming Queen.
She really and truly did look like a dream.
Patiently we work and wait
For June 4, when we graduate.
And now that we are full of knowledge
What do we do - We'll go to college.
The thought has lust occured to me,
What a catastrophe it would be
lf when the Class of '57
At long last reaches the Gates of Heaven
St. Peter will say of our hard fought race
"You can't come in cause you never did place."

Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Tell me, o witches three,
Who foretold Macbeth's fate,
Where will the class of '57 be
At some, distant, future date?
Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake.
In the caldron boil and bake,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
The weird sisters, hand in hand,
Posters of the sea and land,
Thus do go about, about,
Thrice to thine, and thrice to mine,
And thrice again to make up nine.
Peace! the charm's wound up.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
THE CLASS OF '58 HAS A SIPLENDID HISTORY. WE STARTED OFF OUR FRESH-
MAN YEAR WITH A BANG BY TAKING 2ND PLACE IN THE TALENT SHOW. OUR
STUNT NIGHT WAS CONSIDERED VERY GOOD ALTHOUGH WE DIDN'T PLACE. OUR
SIOPHOMORE YEAR WE WALKED OFF AGAIN WITH QND PLACE IN THE TALENT SHOW.
OUR JUNIOR YEAR HAS PROVED TO BE THE BEST YET. WE RECEIVED THE RED
RIBBON FOR QND PLACE ON OUR HOMECOMING FLOAT. WE CAPTURED IST PLACE
WITH OUR TALENT SHOW, "THE I9TH HOLE." THEN AS A DELICIOUS TOPPING OUR
BEAUTY, MISS SALLY MCCORD, WAS CROWNED QUEEN OF GADSDEN HIGH AT THE
CORONATION BALL. WE HAVE ALSO WON THE SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD FOR THIS
YEAR WHICH REALLY SHOWS WHAT OUR CLASS CAN DO.
THE CLASS OF '58 HAS MADE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES ALREADY BUT YOU JUST
WATCH US NEXT YEAR! OUR PRESIDENT, RALPH GODFREY, HAS DONE A WONDER-
FUL JOB THIS YEAR AND WE ARE VERY PROUD OF OUR CLASS SPONSORS, MRS.
LUKER AND MR. HERLONG, WHO HAVE STOOD BEHIND THE CLASS AND HAVE HELP-
ED US IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTDRY
ALTHOUGH THE SOPHOMORE CLASS HAS NOT WON AS MANY HONORS AS
OUR SISTER CLASSES, WE HAVE WORKED EQUALLY AS HARD.
DURING OUR FRESHMAN YEAR WE HAD A NICE FLOAT, WHICH, HAD THERE
BEEN JUDGES, WOULD HAVE PLACED. FOR "GREEN" FRESHMEN WE GAVE A VERY
GOOD TALENT SHOW.
AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR SOPHOMORE YEAR, THE PEOPLE FROM EAST GADS-
DEN INCREASED OUR NUMBER TO 'THE LARGEST CLASS IN GADSDEN HIGH SCHOOL'S
HISTORY. WITH THIS CLASS WE PUT ON A WONDERFUL TALENT SHOW, WHICH
WE FELT WAS TOPS.
BETTY SUE DENSON, OUR CLASS BEAUTY, FOR THE SECOND TIME, REPRESENTED
OUR CLASS VERY WELL AT THE CORONATION BALL.
ALL IN ALL, OUR SOPHOMORE YEAR WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL. WE ARE LOOK-
ING FORWARD TO THE TIME WHEN WE WILL BE "UPPER CLASSMEN."

The Gadsden High School Band probably appears before more people than any other school or-
ganization. The band appears in football games, civic parades, and out-of-town parades. This year
the band, in colorful new uniforms, made particularly outstanding appearances and was o real credit
to the school. A unique activity of the band is its two-week camp during the summer. The flog-
swingers this year took up twirling and constituted o baton corps.

The Tigers ended their "So" season with
a not-too-impressive record. The Tigers had
a very inexperienced team to put up against
a very rough schedule. Captain Robert
Weathers and center Myron Hawkins lead
the line in some very fine defense while
quarterback Gerald Reynolds and haltback
Harry Littleton did the majority of the ball
The Tigers ended with one win, six loss-
es, and two ties, but Coach Watford is ex-
pecting a more successful season next year
due to more experience.

DECATUR DEFEATS GADSDEN 14-I2
The Bengals lost a very disappointing game to the Red Raiders of Decatur 14-12.
Gadsden was unable to move the ball at all the first half, registering not one first
down. Decatur, had lost their first two games to Athens and Tuscaloosa, showed great
offensive power and on defense iarred the ball loose from Tiger backs several times
throughout the game.
After a disappointing l4-O half-time score, the reiuvenated Tigers came back to
start a drive in the third quarter sparked by a touchdown in the opening minutes of
the tourth quarter. The Tigers scored again but time ran out with the score I4-12.

PANTHERS BATTLE TIGERS TO 0-0 DRAW
The Tigers iourneyed to Huntsville with every intention of spoiling the Huntsville
The entire tirst halt was dominated by the Tigers and was played in Panther
territory with all the backs moving the ball well. Twice in the first halt the Tigers had
the ball inside the TO yard line.
In the second half the Tigers played most of the game in Panther territory getting
down very near the goal but never quite having that extra punch to push the ball over.
The Panthers played a good game in holding the Tigers when they got down
near the goal line. Their best stand was in the closing seconds of the game when
they held the Tigers on the one-toot line.
The game ended in a O-O tie.

THE 'I956 - '57 TIGERS
E 1956 - '57
Gadsden's Tigers Finished the i956-'57 season with an overall record of 7-25.
This was Coach Fred Newcome's third season at Gadsden. For the first time since his coming,
Gadsden did not win the County Championship or a trophy at the District Tournament.
Many things point to a better season for the Tigers next year. Juniors figured prominently in Tiger
wins and carried a big load for inexperienced players. Myron Hawkins, All Tournament, Gerald Rey-
nolds, Jim Vice, and Gary Suttle all showed promise of even better things to come. Two spohomores
broke into the varsity ranks this year, and should be very valuable to the Tigers in the future.
Of course, the seniors should not be discounted. They carried the brunt of the load for the Tigers
and if they had had a little more experience or a little more help perhaps they would have done great
Good luck to the 1957-'58 Tigers!

the opening moments of the game. For the first
time in the season the Tigers began to control the
boards with Ronald Copeland, Tom Sedam, and
"Smokey" Smith grabbing rebounds out from under
the noses of the Sonsom Cogers.
After a torrid opening, the Tigers never relin-
guished their lead, although the margin of difference
was seldom more than 5 points. A junior, Myron
Hawkins, began hitting from the corner early in the
game and opened up the Rebel defense for Smith,
Sedam and Reynolds to shoot iump and drive-in
Gadsden led 20-I3 at the end of the first quarter and by a margin of 5 points, 31-26 at the holf.
The tension of the game was evident in the third quarter, as three players were expelled from the
game for improper sportsmanship. Gadsden led at the end of the third frame 46-37. The Tigers played
the last quarter with the confidence and coolness of seasoned veterans. Sedam displayed a magnificent
floor game, in addition to contributing IO points to the Tiger cause. lt was a dream come true when the
final horn blew and the scoreboard read Gadsden 62-Sansom 52. The teom was swamped by their
supporters and received well deserved praise from both sides of the creek. High point man for Gadsden
was Smith with 18. Hawkins, Reynolds, and Sedam followed with 14, I2 and 10 respectively.
SPRINGVILLE DOWNS TIGERS IN OVERTIME
Gadsden played what was probably their best
game to date when they met Springville. The Tigers
set an amazing rapid pace, which did not slacken
until the game was over.
The Tigers jumped into a first period lead of
26-I2. This was mainly attributed to their fast
"Smokey" Smith and Gerald Reynolds continued
to baffle Springville with their rapid fire fast break
in the second period. Springville continued to peck
away at the Tiger lead, never creating a threat but
always just a few points away. The half time score
In the third period it seemed that neither team
miss, as both piled up the score and began
from the outside. Gadsden still lead at the
end of the third frame 57-69.
Springville began a full court press at the onset
of the last period and Gadsden began to crack
under the pressure. At the end of the regulation
game, the score was tied 69-69.
The visitors from Springville could not be stopped
as they ran over the Tiger five. Then the three
minute overtime expired with Springville ahead 76-
Reynolds was high point man for Gadsden with
20, Smith had I9, and Tom Sedam brake into the
double figures with IO.

Bulldogs. At the end of the game the score stood
I-iighpoint honors were shared by Sophomore
center Gusty Nordgren and "Smokey" Smith with IO
TIGERS TOP PIEDMONT 73-59

man with I7, Hawkins followed with l2, and Smith

The Tigers faced the seventh seeded Bulldogs of Anniston in their initial game
of the Sixth District Tournament. Gadsden went into the game as a fifteen point
underdog, but almost surprised the Bulldog Cage-rs.

indication of a runaway.

THE 1957 TRACK TEAM
The '57 edition of the Tiger thin-clads was the most successful in the history of GHS. In addition
to sending eight men to the state meet, the Tigers were very well represented in the Alabama-Georgia
Meet with six contestants.
Many new records were set by the track men. Nine new records for GHS alone were set, two in
the district meet, five in the county meet, and three in the sectional meet.
The Tigers placed first in the county meet, second in the sectional and district meets, and third
in the state meet.
The majority of the team was made up of sophomores and juniors, so look out next year!

The Tigers '57 Baseball Team, under the fine coaching of Bill Abston, had a very good season.
Because there were only two Seniors on the team, they were thought to be inexperienced, but they
proved their ability with a ball and bat by a successful year.
The Tigers should be well represented on the diamond next year since all of the lettermen will return
except the two seniors.

SELECTOR OE OUR QUEEN
Miss Marion Sheppard, Editor
Gadsden High School Crucible
Dear Miss Sheppard:
The pictures that you sent of three class
beauties were certainly lovely. Each girl's picture
possessed very much poise and beauty. I considered
it quite a privilege to select the Gadsden High
School Queen from these attractive girls' pictures.
After much consideration my choice for queen was
Miss Sally McCord.
I sincerely hope the Student Body will be
pleased with my choice.
I wish you the greatest success on the 1957
