Merry thoughts and childish ways. Passing notes, and chewing gum. I’m afraid we seemed quite dumb! Farewell to friends who brought us cheer Farewell to teachers treasured dear. To studies seeming drear and dark. To sports that seemed to hold a sjiark. Farewell, dear leader whom we love; When we lagged you gave a shove. Today we embark on a tortuous path. Beset with heartaches, tears, and wrath. If we are strong and brave of heart. And make the most of our snail part. A part of something strong and free. Then Tarrant High School. Hail to thee’ —Virginia I). Gilmore

HISTORY «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 advertisements
