We of the annual staff wish to thank our many friends for the invaluable aid they have rendered to us. We sincerely hope that this will become a book dear to everyone, and that in its pages you will find a chest full of joys. In looking back, may it serve as a link to your high school days. JEAN GILLIAM Bzzyilzerr Almmger' BETTY JEAN HARTSELL Edimi'-ilz-Chief Miss LAURA E. NEECE Ad'zfi.re1' l in DEDICATION When we consider all that one man's done To make our school the best that can be found, Unseltishly has fame and honor won For students, teachers, parents here around, Who through his zest for living goodly life Inspires us all to hobbies, happy hours, Gives inspiration, comfort in our strife, And makes us long to bring out hidden powers- We realize more we owe than We can pay. We bring our gratitude and thankful hearts, And in our humble, small, but deep-felt way Present a token which we hope imparts A portion of our gratitude. In brief, Wie dedicate the Growler to our Chief- MR. GEORGE H. ARNOLD W" J 'gaflftdfi For more than thirty years Mr. J. N. I-Iauss led in developing the Thomasville schools from a single frame building, housing a seven grade school, to a modern and efflcient system of gram- mar and high schools. Some of those who knew him during those years may feel that a building other than a gymnasium might more appropriately have been named for him. lt is true that he never particularly emphasized athletics or physical edu- cation, but on second thought one must realize that any building that contributes to the develop- ment in any way of the youth of Thomasville may happily bear Mr. Hauss' name. He has always been interested in the education of the whole individual and never over-emphasized any particular field. Let us hope that the Hauss Gymnasium may long serve to promote the welfare of generations of Thomasville students. But Mr. Hauss is far more enduringly memorialized in the lives of hundreds of men and women in this town andielsewhere to whom he taught by precept, and especially by ex- ample, those qualities of character that a good athletic program promotes: integrity, sportsman- ship, consideration of others, clean living, and self- control. A Long ago, when Mr. Hauss used to teach ninth grade English, he asked his students to memorize lines from Shakespeare that might well apply to him, "His life was gentle, and the elements so mixed in him that nature might stand up and say to all the world 'This was a manl' " MR.

CLASS HISTORY Although a few of us had had a taste of high school in the eighth grade, for most of us changing classes was a new and exciting experience. As our president for this year we elected Julius Green. Becoming sophomores at last we now felt very important. Our activities this year in- cluded a very successful class party. Howard Lookabill was chosen as our president. Our junior year was a very busy and en- joyable one. We now began to take a decided part in the activities of our school. This year we were joined by the juniors from Mills Home, who have added a great deal to our class. Paul Smith, Robert Cagle, Peggy Smith, and Nancy Cranford were chosen as our officers. A few of the high spots this year were receiving our class rings, the junior Maga- zine Drive, and the Junior-Senior Prom. We are very proud of the fact that we were the first class to give a prom instead of the traditional banquet. The Dutch theme carried out helped in making the evening a great success. Wanda Beck, who received the honor of being crowned "Miss Thomasville High School," was the pride of our class. Wie entered our last year enthusiastically but with a slight feeling of regret. Bill Hethcock was elected as our supreme officer. Other officers were Julius Green, Vice-Presi- dent, Helen Payne, Secretary, and Ruby Hauser, Treasurer. One of the most exciting events of this year was winning a football game with Lexington. This had not been done since 1942. Our time was taken up with elections, Senior Week, the junior-Senior Prom, the Senior Play, and finally, Commencement. We sincerely believe that our class is the best yet to graduate from Thomasville High School, and we extend to the future seniors a challenge to make our alma mater an even greater school. To the faculty we express our deepest appreciation for their worthy efforts, many of which, we realize, were above and be- yohd their duty. We truly think our faculty is the best to be found anywhere. With our high school career coming to an end, We now look to the future with high hopes. May we all achieve the highest suc- cess in anything we undertake. 9 aa Louise SULLIVAN C lair H irtoriazz CLASS PROPHECY OF 1950 Thomasville North Carolina November 30, 1949 Dear Tootie, How are you liking New York these days?
