BETTY JEAN HARTSELL
Miss LAURA E. NEECE
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
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-
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
"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' "

Two hits and it miss.
Look at t-he legs on that rabbit
Laziness is bliss.
