Talladega High 5011001
Our high school days are almost overe-those vvonderful days when
everything is exciting to our young hearts3,We vvould capture again the
thrill of the football games in the fall, the Christmas party in the vvinter,
the lunior-Senior banquet in the spring, and finally the day of graduation
We would not forget all the little in-between things that make .our
school immortal to everyone vvho enters it vvide-eyed in his freshman
year and graduates a "Sparkling Senior "
ln this tenth volume of the "Tallala" vve bring you familiarscenes,
faces, and events to recall those happy days at T, H S, in V946-'47,
The Senior Class of Talladega l-ligh School dedicates this lOth volume of the
Tallala to Miss Zora Ellis. During the twenty-one years that she has taught English
in the Talladega High School, she has fulfilled her responsibilities with unfailing
enthusiasm and zeal. Without Miss Ellis' help we would often have been unable to
accomplish some of our most worthwhile undertakings, for she has always been
ready to give generously of her time and energy, She is the living example of the
success and contentment we would like to attainin. our lives. We wish to dedicate
this as a token for her services through the year.
The Annual Staff has worked hard t '
o give you this year book. lt wasn't easy to
convince the merchants-who responded most liberally-that the i947 Tallala was
the best way to advertise. Tuesda attern '
y oon meetings kept us at school until dark.
Pict - k' "
ure ta ing days were tales full of sound and fury." But all in all it was loads
With the untiring help of the staff and aids, the co-operation of Mr. Nunnelley
o er members of the faculty, and under the leadership of Miss Ellis, we give
you this tenth volume of the"-l'allala"

This group of fine boys was complimented from every part of the state. They accomplished for
themselves and Coach Shapiro and Coach Wesley, not only an undefeated football season but also a
conduct record that was held true at every place the team went.
Seventeen of the twenty-one boys on the squad graduate this year, but they are hoping that the
team next year can carry on where they left off.
