Hail to thee’ —Virginia I). GilmoreHISTORY «ta| X relating the history of four years of diligent study, along with many frivolous moments leading to this glorious graduation. I shall mention the most prominent facts and events of the graduating class of '53. Four years ago a group of 117 !w ys and girls entered Tarrant 1 ligh. which seemed as unknown and mysterious as the mighty universe. Soon these inferior liodies began learning and taking their place in the regular routine of the school. We take pride in believing we were an outstanding class in participation in all activities and in striving to improve. We had the privilege of helping the Student Council get its start in its good work. When we became sophomores, our number was increased to 222 by additional students from Pinson, Palmerdale, Springdale, Lcwisburg. North Birmingham, Walker’s Chajjel, and Sayreton. We elected class officers, cheered our athletes, served on the junior annual staff, joined dubs, and got down to real studying. Proudly we undertook our duties as juniors. Our number now 172. we felt that we occupied a higher and brighter place in this imjiortant planet, our school. For the first time we enjoyed the privilege of Ix-ing advised by counselors—one for the girls, another for the Ik vs. The counselors have continued to give valuable assistance by discussing problems confidentially and giving helpful guidance. At last, on Scptcmlier 5, 1952. one hundred forty-three seniors triumphantly enrolled in the happiest and brightest year of their educational life. We eagerly began our studies, elected class officers, selected the annual staff, chose who’s who. decided on the dedication, had our pictures made, ordered rings, caps, gowns, and invitations. All these acts, though small in themselves, served as frequent reminders that May 28. 1953. graduation day would eventually arrive with our diplomas. As January came, our number had decreased to 138 localise of the demands of the armed forces, the working world, and marriage. The new lunchroom was opened for our service on January fifth. A few weeks later we had access to the new library and the new classrooms created from the former library and lunchroom. Fourteen seniors succumbed to Cupid’s darts and entered matrimony. Ambitions represented by the graduates ranged from housewife to air-line stewardess for girls, and mechanic to farmer and to Navy captain for the Ih vs. Names indicated by corresponding numbers in advertisementsTarrant High School has done well in serving the needs of the communities patronizing it. Eleven vocational courses—acetylene and electric welding, automotive lxwly and fender repair, automobile mechanics, cabinet and pattern making, electricity, machine shop practice, mechanical drafting, office machine maintenance and repair, radio repair, sheet metal layout and fabrication, and shoe repair and leathercraft—are offered to the lx ys. sixteen years of age or older. In addition, there are courses in home economics, science, commercial arts, English, American Democracy, history (American and World), consumer economics, social living, and a complete semester in driver training. Shining constellations which have brightened our school path arc: In sports our 1m vs have taken their place in baseball, baskctl all. and football. East year they earned the Good Sportsmanship trophy. Athletics, physical education, parties, clubs and the Junior-Senior From served to give enjoyment to the students. And so. with time passing on. we arc preparing to end our days at school to take our place as the future generation. With the home, the school ami the church supplementing one another, we have the foundation to make that generation great. —Nila B.

As if by magic, I saw in the stars the future of my classmates ten years hence. Charldean Bowers, having given up the idea of spinsterhood is now valet to dishpans and rolling pins. Her husband. Kay Songer, owns the dime store. Jo Anne Yates, Marv Booth, and Faye Terry are his The Paramount Theatre, owned by Glynn Monaghan, features Sue Thacker and Malone Gilliam in “Bluebeard's ()thcr Wife." produced by the Hardy Franklin-Billy Barksdale Movie Makers Company, of which Billy Joe Fortenberry and Audrey Dollar are costume designers. Willa Dean Boatright and Kolwrt Daniel, passengers on the space ship piloted by Donald Crocker, were talking to Carolyn Bradley, stewardess. As the sjxice ship traveled through the Milky Way. I saw Corine Belcher. Madge Bonds and Mary Ann Barton selling chlorophyll popcorn to Billy Fountain, Harold Thompson and Jimmy Reeves. Martha Sue Kooker, mother of twins, has as her doctor, Billy Krwin. Site Keplinger is her nurse and Milton Hendricks is Dr. Hrwin's assistant. Their hospital is operated by Donald Morgan and Wavne Thacker. Bobby Ray Downs, owner of the Hercules Club, has just engaged Dinah Hearn, Mary Sims, Barbara Alldredge, Frances Armstrong and Mary Coleman as chorus girls, directed by the famous choreographer. Tommy Kager. Roycc Rotton. Thomas Godfrey. Leroy Ozmcnt. Brooks Sisson and David Lolley arc the principal members of the orchestra there. On another star in the Milky Way I saw George Blankenship, a Wall Street broker, dictating a letter to his secretary. June Hayden. Betty Buckner, a Imarder in the home of Ruth Oliver and Urn-ell Downs, enjoys a radio program in which Wayne Davis, disc jockey, play's Donald Eng-land’s recording of "Starry Eyed Baby." Gazing toward the Ram. I detected Drew Newman and Meredith Sanders eating in I.’Arsenic Coffee Sliop owned by Robert and Carolyn Abney. Other customers. Jennie Mclnvale. Martha Ann McClure, Elaine Hill and Kathryn Lanier, mention the fact that J. C. Brown had succeeded in selling three used Cadillacs to Betty Skelton. Bobby Head, and Wallace Ledbetter. I caught a glimpse of some other friends as my telescope passed by the Little Dipper. Carroll Early, the opera singer, and his leading lady. Barbara Anne Self, were driving to the Kentucky Derby with Joe Faggard to see Carolyn Bryant’s horse ridden by jockey, Roy Burnett. Looking toward another constellation 1 saw Shirley Swindall modeling bathing suits at Pizitz. James Terrell, the manager, broke all records with 98c sales.Salesladies were Claudia Pass. Patsy Heaton. Shirley Jerntgan, and Bertha King, directed by Tommy Walthall. Rex Carter, driver for the Linzey Ballcw and Robert Canu| Taxie Service, had a wreck as he was carrying Jimmy Waldrop to Shirley Millar's house for an evening of dancing. On the Big Bear 1 saw that the iiriiuiigliam A'civs, edited by Franklin Posey, sjxinsored an art exhibit which featured the jKiintings of Johnnie Callahan. Annie Jo Evans, and Sue Thomas. Patsv Yeager had replaced Judy Brown in writing "Advice to the Lovelorn." Turning toward Libra I saw that the Paul Tidwcll-Robcrt Rogers Publishing Company had printed a lunik entitled "My Secret For Staying Young," by Shirley Kite. Joan Reid, C.eneva Hatheock, and Nclda Troulias were zealously studying it. The Corbett Millar Awards were given to: Thomas Perryman for literature, Billy Prank Kelley for science, Thomas I«ong for journalism. Clive Pass for medicine and Harold Carlisle for art. On a falling star I saw fireman Joe Wilson saving Myra Cureton. Jeanette Brown, and Joyce Hall from the Old Maid’s Apartment House, owned by Dorothy Nolen. Policeman Jinum Dobbins was restraining the crowd among whom I recognized David Walker, the evangelist, and Edna Walker Wilson. On Draco I saw Hilda Calloway and Shirley Faile in their New York shop of interior decoration. Maxine Bolton ! eats the drum to announce the arrival of customers and llershell Yates is the floor walker. Peggy Alvis, Dorothy Peoples. Marion Deasnn Kelley, and Nila Ingram left their “little angels" with Shirley My rick, the kindergarten teacher, while they attended an art class laugh by Rita Thompson. On a distant star. Mira. Billy Burchfield was driving one of Amial Smith’s trains. Among the passengers were Virginia Gilmore. Jerry Tillery, Raymond Ewing, Joan Webster. Betty Wilson, and Pave and Kaye Sorrell. I saw Bobby Bankston and Shcral Beasley, candidates for district attorney, drive up to Billy MoCuirk's service station. Ann Howell and June McCullough, as attendants were attracting much business. Karl Stanley and Billie Faye Hill, the most recently newly-weds, occupy a twenty-room mansion which is kept by Wilburn Dcndv, Jack Crick, Joe Chamberlain. 11 omer Taylor, and Carolyn Hopkins. As the sun rose, the stars faded from sight, and 1 put away my telescope, thinking of the wonders that the stars hail shown me. — X A N CY Cl.K M F.
