THE 1957 GROWLER il Qi 'i Published By The Yearbook Staff THOMASVILLE HIGH SCHOOI Thomasville, North Carolina FOREWORD SLEEK AND WARM AND STRONG, like a panther stalking its prey, its nostrils emitting fire and its eyes piercing the dark expanses ahead-so did Old Thirty-four surge through a Southern night into a silent and sleeping Thomasville. Its whistle cry broke the stillness-a strange, yet powerful, voice in the night. In an old rambling frame house beside the tracks John Abernathy, lying on his back gazing through his window into the star-filled night, heard the familiar cry and, as always, it filled him with glory. To his youthful heart full of high aspirations and a yearning for adventure, it seemed to call in an unknown tongue, beckoning to lead him to his destiny. Life to John was a series of trains, each leading man closer to his destiny. Across the tracks in a small brick bungalow Kirk Stard mumbled a curse incoherently and rolled over in his bed, pulling a pillow over his head as he did so to shut out the sound of the whistle. To him the train whistle was only a nuisance, signifying nothing, a price one must pay for liv- ing in a railroad town like Thomasville. And so it followed that all through life, as John boarded trains to make himself a greater instrument of service to humanity, Kirk would mumble his incoherent curse and pull his pillow over his head, trading his destiny for forty winks. Little do the students at Thomasville High realize that they are on a train that, if ridden to the end of the line, could well lead them to greatness. Thomasville High is a train that requires no ticket of admission, only a sincere willingness to learn and to mature in a free society on the part of the passenger. It is a train as complete as any mod- ern passenger train, containing its own engineers, con- ductors, passengers, club cars and other recreational cars, flagmen, streamlined appearance, and paid freight. To express this philosophy, this volume has been written. f ff fifff p 1 W ifffffm ra N W WIMW ' 7 f X V 5 X f f X, ,f .f ' , L, lf ' X Y I jx Z X' V' f X X X l X. l A 4 , Z e , f J 4 ,wff f X 4 am.

As news analyst on WAAM-TV, Bal- timore, he won the Peabody, Hill- man, and DuPont awards-three of televisionls biggest prizes. D A ION IT IS ONLY RIGHT that this edition of the Growler be dedicated to the Thomasville High faculty member who best personifies the spirit and challenge of the railroad. Of such stock is Mr. G. M. Eargle. During his years at Thomasville High Mr. Eargle has worked tirelessly to pre- pare students to think in mod- ern society through the study of mathematics as well as to stand up under the rigors of active life through participa- tion in athletics. A great teacher, an athletic enthus- iast, and, above all, a Chris- tian gentleman-these three are one in Mr. Eargle. In recognition and appreciation of these noble qualities this volume is fondly and sincere- ly dedicated.

The new senior high is to be erected in the near future with funds secured in a school bond election in the fall of 1955. Although plans for con- struction and location were incomplete at the time of publication, the new school may be expected to contain 25 to 30 or more classrooms, an adequate home-mak- ing department, modern laboratories, im- proved shop facilities, a large cafeteria, a gymnasium with well-equipped dressing rooms, a recreation room with a soda fountain, and many other features that are a part of the modern American high school. Work Hand in Hand ENTERING HIS OFFICE for another day of working for the youth of Thomas- ville is Thomasville City Schools Superin- tendent George H. Arnold. THE BOARD OF EDUCATION consists of, seated: Chairman Charles H. Prevost, Mr. G. H. Arnold, Mr Robert E. Holladay. Standing: Mr. Amos H. Ragan, Jr.. Mr. Harry Brown Finch, Mr. Van W. Rich- ardson. IO To Better the Life "I ONCE OWNED A HAMMER," popu- lar Thomasville High Principal W. S. Hor- ton mournfully asserts over the P. A. system. of Youth in Thomasville THOMASVILLE HIGHlS capable prin- cipal, W. S. Horton, and well-trained fac- ulty assure students of the best in high school educational opportunities and ad- vantages. Strict enough to demand top performance of each student, yet under- standing enough to be able to help the student analyze and correct his various problems, this competent group of people aids the student in maturing emotionally as well as intellectually. The major link between the parent and the school, other than the child, is the Parent-Teacher Association. At monthly meetings of the Thomasville High P.T.A. parents and teachers have ample oppor- tunity to discuss their child's progress and problems and plan for his future. Such a relationship between parent and teacher is very advantageous to a childls emotional and intellectual growth. PRINCIPAL W. S.

AS EIGHTH GRADERS the present Senior Class officers step aboard the train for the first time. Seniors Travel a Lor SENIORS-the first class passengers on this train leading to man's destiny-are nearing the end of their journey. The train has carried them far: yet, with humility, they realize that the real journey has just begun. Only five years ago the class of 1957 boarded the train as eighth graders, gazing in wonder at the new World that lay before them. Due to reorganization in the school system, that class was the first eighth grade to ever be considered part of the high school. Officers that year were Jim Bodie, president, Marvin Eargle, vice presidentg Cyrette Hol- liday, secretary, and David Howard, treas- urer. Another classmate, Eleanor Gray, was elected THS's first Miss Football. As Freshmen, members of the class of 1957 felt that they had come a long way. Jim Bodie was class president that year, Jack Tysinger, vice presidentg Runell Hinkle, secretary, and Ralph Eanes, treasurer. AT THE END of their journey Senior Class Sec- retary Marie Phillips, President Gene Whitten, Vice President Jerry McCulloch, and Treasurer Runell Hinkle leave the train much better and much wiser people. Vay in Their Five Years SEEKING INFORMATION on college entrance requirements, Runell Hinkle confers with Miss Lois Johnson, former THS principal and present Dean of Women at Wake Forest College. Miss Johnson addressed the student body in the fall. .9 f ? 1 V sq., 4 M., at THS Biology, Silas Marner, and Julius Caesar remind the graduating class of its hectic sophomore year. With popular Jim Bodie again class president, other officers were Ralph Eanes, vice presidentg Runell Hinkle, secretaryg and Roy Stamey, treasurer. Upon becoming juniors the J unior-Senior Prom, magazine drive, class rings, term pa- pers, and electing became everyday words. That year also saw members of the class elected to high school-wide offices, inducted into the National Honor Society and Quill and Scroll, and lauded for excellence in ath- letics. Junior officers were Roy Stamey, pres- identg Ralph Eanes, vice presidentg Patsy Thomason, secretaryg and Marie Phillips, treasurer. With only that solemn walk in cap and gown remaining now, the life of each senior is his to choose. He may continue his journey toward self-betterment and greater service to others or he may disembark and never move again. Yet, with the great amount of knowledge and vast understanding of life that each senior has gained at Thomasville High School, it is only right to believe that he will remain aboard the train to the end of the line.

Junior Class President Tommy Bowers takes Secretary Mary Sue Bray's class ring measure- ment as Vice-President Jimmy Caldwell and Treasurer David Workman look on. Juniors Like Being Caliecl nUpperclassman' HIGH SALESMEN in the Junior magazine drive-Lynn Harris, Martha Harrison, Beth Casper, and Magazine Drive Chairman Leroy Hill-try to sell Mrs. S. B. Laws a two-year subscription to Ladies' Home Journal. AS FINAL PREPARATION for the glorified life of a Senior, the Junior year has a lot of glory in its own right. Notable among this class's memories are the elec- tion of Juniors to the school's highest of- fices, the feeling of accomplishment at the Junior-Senior Prom, the eagerness With which that little box containing class rings from Indianapolis was await- ed, and the utter exhaustion that became every Junior's when the deadline for term papers closed in. Yet, in all its glory, it lacked the in- spiration and guidance of Miss Vera Dixon, beloved United States history teacher and Junior class adviser Who re- signed last summer because of ill health. In her 29 years at Thomasville High this dedicated teacher was a firm believer in the democratic Way of life and all that is good and of God. Miss Dixon is sorely missed.

TO THE SOPHOMORE, high school life is a midpoint between Freshman abuse and upper- classman glory. He is the student who has passed over the first big hump, yet has not quite arrived. Even in this phase of high school life, however, the Sophomore manages to have his fung and when all is said and done, counts his Sophomore year among his fondest high school memories. The Sophomore year is that one in which the unsuspecting student is introduced to "Bugs" Miller and his varied assortment of pickled crayfish, frogs, earthworms, and fish. This is the class in which girls either develop an iron stomach or don't live to tell the story. And here, eating spaghetti with fervor in the cafeteria after bisecting earthworms third period be- comes a natural act. This is also the year when a few members of the class receive appoint- ments to the Student Council, make the var- sity teams, and take a more active part in Thomasville High clubs and other organiza- tions.

This glory is that of the Freshman. For this reason he doesn't mind sitting in back seats and balcony seats in assembly half so much as most upperclassmen believe. The Freshman class will always re- member reading Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and preparing poetry booklets in English, being fasci- nated by the natural Wit of Mr. G. M. Eargle in algebra classes, learning to conjugate Latin verbs, naming the bones and muscles in physical educa- tion, taking Miss Bain Johnson's li- brary course, and studying very hard to lead the Honor Roll almost every month. HOPING FOR SOME FORM of instant algebra are Freshman Class Treasurer Connie Wood, Sec- retary Milford Cox, Vice President Robert Sherrill, and President Larry Leonard. Scholarly Freshmen Often Lead the Honor Roll CHANGING CLASSES EVERY HOUR confuses the unsuspecting freshman in the fall. The muddled directions of his upperclassman friends leave Milford Cox completely in the dark.

Eighth Graders Get a Glimpse of High 'School Life GETTING ACQUAINTED with Mr. Roy Black- welder's best friend, "George," are eighth graders Mike Wrape, Bobby Johnson, Bobby Williams, and Jimmy White. ALTHOUGH NOT A PART of big- time high school life, eighth graders still manage to get a glimpse of the life that lies before them once the freshman plateau is reached. These youngest of Thomasville High's students are main- ly students climbing the educational ladder from Kern Street, Colonial Drive, and Liberty Drive Elementary Schools. Memorizing Miss Clarisse Rose's notebook of a "zillion" English rules, becoming acquainted with Mr. Roy Blackvvelder's best friend, "George," reading his name in print for the first time in Facts and Fun and the Growler, participating in pep rallies, occasional- ly hobnobing with high school students, and, most important of all, having a ball team of his own to cheer for- these are the things that will make the eighth grader's days rank among his most cherished high school memories in years to come.

CJ E Jane Young 56 Anything Can Happen in the Classroom UNDER THE INSTRUCTION of Miss Leta Miller the Holy Bible assumes the importance it should to high school students. Bible is offered to students in all schools in the Thomasville area under the sponsorship of the Thomasville Min- isterial Association. Certificates of achievement are presented to Bible students at the Awards Day program. Pyramids and boxes might seem more at home in a geometry class, but girls taking physical edu- cation could construct human pyramids and boxes that are a credit to mathematics. In addition to these gymnastics boys and girls alike are familiar with the trampoline, the basketball courts, and the baseball diamond. "This typewriter won't type right" is a familiar cry from first year typing students who tend to blame poor typing of every nature on the defense- less typewriters. As the year progresses, however, the typewriters improve until the second year when they are working as they should. Other than typing, bookkeeping and shorthand are included in the commercial department. There's more than one Thomasville High stu- dent who would be a ready customer for "instant algebra," should it ever be invented. Offering gen- eral mathematics, algebra, plane geometry, and trigonometry, the mathematics department pro- vides adequate preparation for future college students. LOOKING OVER the land of Palestine where most of the Bible has its setting are Bonnie Young, Hugh Hayes, Diana Russell, Miss Leta Miller, and Larry Clodfelter. BUILDING A HUMAN PYRA- MID are members of Mrs. Jean Fritts' physical education classes. MISS NANCY HOUSTON tells Kent Lopp not to peck but type while Glenda Bray, Bobby Jones, Pat Tysinger, and Dorothy Hoffman are finishing a problem to be handed in . . . LEARNING TO ADD alge braically are Tommy Holladay, Linda Brinkley, and Larry Cook. Mr. L. D. Shealy is the instructor. 57 Students Spend 970 Hours on Class Yearly 'QI MADE A BED" might sound a bit un- usual coming from a boy, for that's a girl's Workg yet it's true. Some of the boys in the "shop', classes actually make beds, not to men- tion tables, shadow boxes, and many other Wooden objects. Tax form Worries won't come again until next yearg but when they do, they'll be much easier for students who have studied filing income tax returns in economics. Included in the social studies departments are sociology, DISCUSSING THEIR FUTURE IN- American history, and civics. COME TAX problems are economics stu- I . dents Dale Myers, Evelyn Godfrey, If one wants a small-sized atomic bomb, he Delina Hamer, and Charles Jones- should visit the chemistry laboratory, say the magic formula, and the chances are that someone will make him one. Even simpler is asking for a glass of H20-or water in our language. In chemistry students learn much about the composition of substances and the transformations they undergo. -Parlez-vous Francais? If you don't speak French, you must be among those taking either Latin or Spanish. But if you aren't, don't feel left out. English is still the common language at Thomasville High, though it has one of the best foreign language departments for a school of its size in the state. SANDING is an important shop pro- cess for Donald Cranford and Pete McDonald. BINGO IN FRENCH? Impossible! But that's what Miss Neece's French I class is doing . . . WILL IT EXPLODE? You never can tell what two girls like Martha Stewart and Mabel Hegler might do. Maybe with Roy Catlett giving directions the experiment will be successful. Q :Zlll 58 X X, ia ,Q2ff fff5 4?

Whether the topic concerns traffic congestion in the halls or replacement of potted plants in the main office, the student body can be assured it is handled with great care by this conscientious group. TALKING OVER one of the Council's most suc- cessful campaigns-School Spirit VVeek4are Sec- retary Cyrette Holliday, President Jim Bodie, Treas- urer Patsy Thomason, and Vice President David McColl. Many believe that School Spirit Week, the first large Student Council project, was responsible for the tre- mendous success of the football team. At any rate it certainly made the school jump with enthusiasm. This eventful Week featured, among other things, wearing of the school colors, daily speeches on school spirit by student leaders and pep rallies over the P.A. system, sale of Bulldog buttons and pennants, and appropriate posters drawn by students. When Council members Eleanor Gray, Bobby Yates, Larry Leonard, and Adviser H. C. Hudgins went to the beach in October, it was not a fishing expedition. This quartet was represent- ing the Student Council at the North Carolina Student Council Congress held this year in Wilmington. At this assemblage of Student Council mem- bers from throughout the state, Thom- asville High's delegates gleaned many ideas and much information which have proved invaluable to the local group in succeeding months. These projects, along with prepara- tion of Student Council bulletins for homeroom presidents, purchase of a new American flag, daylight movie screen, and record player, revision of the Student Cozmfil Handbook, spon- sorship of Twirp Season and the Sadie Hawkins Dance. and collection of toys for needy children at Christmas, to name a few, add up to an eventful and Worthwhile year for they S t u d e nt Council.

NAMED IN HONOR of Miss Lois Johnson, former Thomasville High English instructor and principal, the local chapter of Quill and Scroll rewards with membership outstanding students on the Facts and Fun and Growler staffs. Even though it has been inactive in recent years, it still remains as a goal to be attained by students in- terested in the writing pro- fession. Quill and Scroll Rewards Journalists N. H. S. Compiles MEMBERS of the Charles F. Lambeth Chapter of the National Honor Society rea- lize that where there is honor there is also responsibility. And the first responsibility of any honor society member is to be a good ex- ample to other students and to always excell in the ideals of the organization-character, scholarship, leadership, and service. In the way of projects the honor society is not lack- ing either. It is its duty to compile and mim- eography the Student Directory, send cards of recognition to underclassmen who make superior grades, remember the school help at Christmas, give donations to worthwhile charities, and plan and execute two induc- tions each year. These inductions, conducted in quiet dignity and by candlelight, are among the most impressive programs in the school year. There is always a lighter side to honor so- ciety life, such as the annual spring outing. At this function old members become better acquainted with the newly inducted Juniors. Installation of officers for the coming year climaxes this evening of fun. Student Directory PREPARING the stage for one of their two candlelight inductions, are N. H. S. Treasurer Mary Underwood, Vice President Ralph Eanes, Secretary Runell Hinkle, and President Roy Stamey. HONOR SOCIETY MEMBERS strove to get the Student Directory completed by Thanksgiving holidays. With materials in hand they are, forcgrozmdr Mrs. Wanna L. Murphyiadviser, Bobby Yates, Jim Bodie, Bonnie Myers, Cyrette Holliday. Back row: Roy Stamey, Mary Underwood, Runell Hinkle, Ralph Eanes, Marvin Eargle, Miss Betty Welch-adviser, Barbara Little, Roy Proctor, Elizabeth Smathers. 63 FOR MANY MONTHS, the working dummy was Growler Editor Roy Proctor's constant companion. HOME COMING QUEEN CONTEST co-chairmen Gene Whitten and Mary Un- derwood put the finishing touches on the all-important crown. MR. CURTIS FIELDS gives Growleo' staffers Cyrette Holliday and Nancy Beck specifications for his ad. FROM CONCEPTION of the railroad as a possible yearbook theme to arrival of the pub- lished volume, the Growler staff has had a busy and eventful year. Growler staffers will always remember the marathon Work sessions in an attic room at the editor's home, the hard work put in to make Gfrowlefr' projects, especially advertising, successes, and the thrill when the finished volume arrived from Charlotte. Under Business Manager Bobby Yates ad- vertising-the backbone and mainstay of any yearbook - reached its zenith in the 1957 Growler. More advertising was solicited this year than ever before. Growler staffers will always remember the thrill when a merchant increased the size of his ad. The exotic caravan of Growler staff members carrying money to the bank climaxed the most successful Homecoming Queen contest in Growler history.

Yet there are the more serious moments in the band-those moments in which the band is pulling together to earn a superior rating at the contests and, above all, these moments When its members are conscientiously reflecting the greatest amount of credit possible on their Alma Mater. 68 READY TO PERFORM are members of the Dance Band.

Concerts, Contest Ratings, and Endless Practlc WHILE 'IT IS DOUBTFUL that any of the members of the Girls' Chorus will ever become prima donnas in the Metropolitan Opera, their endless hours of practice have certainly paid off in a lot of glory and many pleasant mem- ories. Girls' Chorus members will al- ways remember Mary Lib Wilson's ex- pert repair vvork on the piano. They Will also remember their first big P. T. A. Christmas concert, the Civitan fruit cake sale on which the chorus Worked and got one fourth of the prof- its, the programs of sacred music given in Thomasville churches, the state and district music contests and especially the long-awaited arrival of the new White stoles and choir room piano.

To fi- nance the spotlight this hardworking group composed of members of Mrs. Harold Modlin's dramatics class presented three one-act plays- "Dooley's Amateur Hour," Sir James Barrie's "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals," and f'Moon- calf Mugfordf' All three plays were successes, . both financially and otherwise. Observing drama, as well as performing it, was an important part of the year's work. In ' this connection the Little Playmakers jour- neyed to Catawba College in March to see the I r Blue Masquers' competent production of Shake- STANDING AROUND SYMBOLS of the the- Spearefs King Hen7,y IV' atrical world are President Lynda Briggs, Sec- retary Mary Underwood, Parliamentarian Lo- retta Gantt, Vice President Bobby Yates, and Treasurer Pansy Cagle.

Here President Jack Tysinger, is magically transformed into an old man by Vice President Lynda Briggs, Sec- retary Patsy Thomason, and Treasurer Linda Carter. All Phases of Stagecraft REALIZING THE NEED to know not only the art of acting but also the art of other phases of stagecraft such as make-up, lighting, and staging, an eager Senior Dramatics Club started the year with special programs on these sub- jects. Through the aid of color film strips fur- nished by theatrical manufacturing companies, lectures and demonstrations by members of the club, these young actors soon became Well versed in stagecraft and its varied application to modern theatre. Even with all the other activity, acting was not neglected. Specializing in one act plays, the first drama of the season was "Stolen Iden- tity," a mystery drama. The other, a comedy, was entitled "The Red Lamp." Both plays were well received by the student body. Financial proceeds from these plays were applied to pur- chase of a complete make-up kit and a dimmer switch for the stage lights, both of which can be used by Thomasville High drama groups in future years. One-Act Plays Interest Junior Thespians THE ART OF MAKE-UP is practiced to good advantage by Junior Dramatics Vice President Tommy Bowers, Secretary Martha Sue Coggins, Treasurer Susie Jones, President Charles Carroll. 'fDoesn't this play sound terrific! Now, Bunny, you know you want to try out for the teen-ager's partf, "We-ll-er-ah I dontt know-uh - I mean, sure I Wouldll' This could easily be a conversation between an eager Junior Dramatics Club member and the president, Charles Carroll. Whether listening to their advis- ers read various plays or attempting to portray a particular character's mood, these young actors and act- resses show rapt interest. Competition is keen when time rolls around for the final selection of a cast. With the Senior Play as their goal next year, Junior Thespians are learning all they can about the art of acting.

BEFORE MERGING after Christmas, there were two Sophomore Dramatic Clubs. Officers of these clubs were Treasurer Carol Clodfelter, Secretary Norma Jean Doss, Vice President Doug Freedle, President Norma Stewart, President Kathryn Allmond, Vice President Ruby Sluder, Secretary Jo Rita Spell, Treas- urer Barbara Stallings, Chaplain Eva Ann Ferguson. Sophomore Dramatics Gets Playwriting Practice PLAYWRITING was added to the list of Sophomore Dramatics Club proj- ered the best plot. The project was com- pleted When these sophomore actors ects this year, adding variety to the year's program. Each member wrote a synopsis of a plot he would like to see written into a play and produced by the club. These plots were turned over to a three-girl committee. This committee wrote its play, using what it consid- presented their original play to Thom- asville High's other dramatics groups. Also on the Sophomore Dramatics 1956-57 agenda were a discussion of current plays, a film strip on make-up, and discussion of different acting tech- niques.

Member E d w a r d Bowles, who saw the play on Broad- way last summer, gave a complete re- view of the play early in the fall. To illustrate his account Edward used re- cordings of the show's hit songs. Rounding out the year's work for this Freshman drama group were pre- sentation of a one-act play before the student body, a discussion of various plays and their merits, and a personal- ity quiz to find out what each member i was best suited to do in life. ALTHOUGH IT'S DOUBTFUL that Freshman Dramatics Treasurer Carolyn Henson, Vice Presi- dent Beverly Carroll, President Donnie Jones, and Secretary Jean Smith will ever tackle Shakespeare, they can still take a few pointers from the world's greatest dramatist.

In 1956-57 debating centered around the United States farm policy. The first debates were practice contests against High Point Senior High, Gray High of Winston-Salem, and other nearby schools. On March 15 the Thomasville High varsity team competed in the Triangular Debating against Bur- lington and Graham. Winners from this contest par- ticipated in the district elimination debates at Wom- an's College in Greensboro. District winners debated at Chapel Hill for the Aycock Memorial Cup. Other than the varsity squad, there were a team each of alternates and Freshmen. Varsity debaters received either letters or bars. Certificates of merit and debating pins were awarded to members on the basis of a point system. In the fall several members participated in a panel discussion on patriotism which was presented to the Thomasville-High Point Chapter of the D.A.R. In connection with debating at Thomasville High, Susie Jones, Judith Morris, and Barbara Burton attended the Forensic Workshop at Wake Forest College one week during the summer and won sev- eral honors. BUILDING THEIR VOCABULARIES, a neces- sity in good debating, are Debating Club Vice Presi- dent Hilda Maness, President Susie Jones, Treas- urer Charles Carroll, Secretary Barbara Burton. l PREPARING FOOD for a needy family at Thanksgiving are Hi-Y Vice President Jerry Sulli- van, President Roy Stamey, Treasurer Tommy Bower, Secretary Roy Proctor, and Sergeant at Arms Jerry Leonard. Hi-Y Boys Live by Christian Principles ONE OF THE OLDEST ORGANIZA- TIONS at Thomasville High, the Hi-Y has long conducted a program of service guided by Christian principles. Affiliated with the National Young Men's Christian Association, the local club is guided by the principles of that well-known group. Collecting food to take to a needy white and Negro family at Thanksgiving is a good example of the many projects the club has undertaken during the year. To finance these projects, Hi-Y boys Work together to make the Spring Ball a success. This dance, one of Thomasville High's biggest spring dances, features the music of the Royal Knights. With a purpose and the means of seeing that purpose fulfilled, the Hi-Y boys have been a great asset to Thomasville High this year.

International Relations Sponsors Kennecly's Speech SEEKING TO GAIN a better understand- ing of the world and its problems, the enthus- iastic members of the International Relations Club originated a plan of study and recrea- tional learning in the fall which has carried them far. Their many programs included a commentary on Cuba by David Myers, Thom- asville High alumnus who went there last summer as part of the Methodist Youth Car- avan, a special study of the Middle East, adviser Stronach's account of her trip to Europe, and a film on the oil problem in Iran and Iraq. Sponsorship of the Reverend Joe Ken- nedy's first hand report on the Hungarian revolution was perhaps the largest Interna- tional Relations Club continibution to the school this year. The Rev. Kennedy, a native of Thomasville, was doing evangelistic Work in Hungary at the time of the uprising. As a result of this talk the club sent a contri- bution to Hungarian Relief. BROWSING THROUGH current issues of Life, Time, and Newsweek are Mrs. Lydia Stronach- adviser, Treasurer Charles Jones, Secretary Lynda Grubb, President Clay Gibbs, and Vice President Pat Henley. WHEN THE TRI-HI-Y was di- vided into two separate organiza- tions at the beginning of the year because of the large enrollment, the upperclassmen formed the Senior Tri-Hi-Y. Under President Nancy Beck's expert guidance this club has conducted a charitable program fully in line with the club's foundation in Christian prin- ciples. Their charitable ventures have included giving a stuffed toy animal to a little leukemia victim, taking a basket of food to a needy family at Thanksgiving, and giv- ing a large carton of milk to an impoverished family With very small children. To raise money for their service projects Senior Tri-Hi-Y girls PREPARING CLOTHES to give a needy family are Senior Sponsored the Valentine Dance and Tri-Hi-Y Secretary Martha Harrison, Vice President Mary the Mister Sweetheart contestiffhe Underwood, Chaplain Patsy Smith, Treasurer Delores Barrier, year was crowned With an Outing Sergeant at Arms Ann Coffee, and President Nancy Beck. in City Memorial Park.

PLAYING SANTA CLAUS to a destitute mother and her three beloved children at Christmas time is only one of the many Ways in which conscientious Junior Tri-Hi-Y mem- bers practice their Christian outlook. These girls, all ,Sophomores and Freshmen, also took a basket of food to a needy family at Thanksgiving. Program planning is of great importance in the Junior Tri-Hi-Y. Many educational, religious, and social areas have been explored by the members through the study of such subjects as etiquette, vocations, ideals of Tri-Hi-Y, and basic philosophies of life. These areas have been explored in floor discus- sions, panel discussions, outside speakers, and fihnstrips. An outing in the spring brought the Tri-Hi-Y year to a memorable and inspiring close. Looking back over the year the prin- ciples of Christian living carried the Junior Tri-Hi-Y girls far. ALL WRAPPED and ready to go! Junior Tri- Hi-Y officers, working on their Christmas project, are, kneeling: President Carol Hampton, Treasurer Kathryn Allmond. Seated: Secretary Martha Rose Lambeth, Vice President Barbara Stallings, Ser- geant at Arms Sue Beck, Chaplain Lorene Poole. F. T. A. Names Chapter in Honor of W. S. Horton F. T. A. Treasurer Delores Batten, Vice Presi- dent Joyce Wilson, President Dorothy Williams, and Secretary Elizabeth Smathers make calendars for teachers' use. AFTER REORGANIZING, the first 'offi- cial act of the Future Teachers of America was to name the chapter in honor of Thomas- ville High principal W. S. Horton. These girls, all planning to become classroom teach- ers, conducted a program of assisting teach- ers with routine acts, such as grading pa- pers, typing, and mimeographing. With a majority of the girls planning to become high school teachers, the experience they gain in this way is invaluable. The F. T. A. is being sponsored this year by the local North Carolina Education Asso- ciation. Mrs. M. G. Allmond, president of that organization, spoke at the impressive candlelight installation service held at Ad- viser Modlin's home in February. Mrs. Eliz- abeth Leonard, president of the Classroom Teachers Association, also spoke at this service. To these girls, full of devotion for the teaching profession, this service will be remembered for a long, long time.

Art Club Recreates Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae FUTURE ARTISTS? Perhaps. At any rate members of the Art Club are a companion- able group with the capacity for getting things done. To prove this the lifesize draw- ings of Li'l Abner, Daisy Mae, Mammy Yokum, and all the other Dogpatch charac- ters at the Sadie Hawkins Dance were made for the Student Council by members of the Art Club. Other activities of the club have included construction of wire figurines, prac- tice in crayon, charcoal, pastel, and ink draw- ing, silk screening, construction of mobiles, cards, and wrapping paper for Christmas, and a study of the different art forms. Art Club members believe that every club meeting should begin with a laugh. For this reason President Eleanor Gray appointed Franklin Davidson official joker of the club. The duties that go with this high appointive office includes the telling of two jokes at the beginning of each meeting. BEING ABLE to draw his figures is an essen- tial to the modern artist.

A.'s Aid Students in Preparing Term Papers CHECKING OUT BOOKS, shelving books, processing new books, keeping the files and card catalogue up to date, helping students find research materials for term papers- these important jobs and many more fall into the capable hands of the Library Assistants. Yet with all the standard jobs necessary to operate a library, the L. A.'s still find the time to sponsor National Book Week, act as hostesses at the faculty tea in the library every fall, give assembly programs and plays to promote and further interest in books, sell Christmas cards, and publish Who's Who at Thomasville High. This is the first year the L. A.'s have undertaken publication of a high school blue book. Another highlight of the year is sending delegates to the spring convention of the N. C. H. S. L. A. Thomas- ville High's Barbara Burton was elected re- porter of this organization last spring. READY TO CHECK out books at the desk are standing: Secretary Judy Morris, Treasurer Julia Richardson, Vice President Martha Harrison. Seated: President Barbara Little. Thomasville Bible Club Sponsors Japanese Orphan BIBLE CLUB MEMBERS know firsthand that the smile of a child is one of God's great- est and noblest creations. This is the second year that this industrious group has spon- sored Hisako Oda, a little two-year old Jap- anese girl living in an orphanage in Japan. To raise funds to support Hisako the club has conducted a bake sale and also two work days in which members did odd jobs, such as washing cars and raking leaves, for people in the community. Sponsoring Christian Emphasis Week and writing verses of scripture on homeroom blackboards every morning are large under- takings of the club. With the Bible and spirit of Christ to guide them, members of the Bible Club are a powerful influence for good at Thomasville High.

Patrol Boys Sacrifice Much Time in Serving School INSURING THE SAFETY of Thomasville High students is Patrol Captain Wesley Patterson. COME RAIN ,icome shine, come what may -the boys of the outside patrol stand by to aid the student and protect him when cross- ing the streets that surround Thomasville High. Theirs is a job, so often unappreciated by the student body, that demands great sac- rifice of early morning and afternoon time. The life of a patrol boy isn't entirely with- out its glory, however. Each year in the spring the Student Council recognizes these boys by giving them certificates and pins of recognition. The boys are also honored at a banquet given by the Thomasville Lions Club. 88 Shutterbugs Study All Phases of Photography IN A TIME when picture taking has be- come a national pastime and is within the financial range of almost everyone, the Pho- tography Club at Thomasville High has ele- vated this fascinating hobby into an art. The entire photographic process, from pur- chase of film to completion of prints, has been covered in the course of the year. Such areas as learning good camera techniques, learning the parts and fundamental operation of a camera, developing pictures, enlarging, and learning the best way to load and unload a camera are fully explored. Photography Club membership dues en- title the member to special privileges, such as having access to the school developing room. With such a club at Thomasville High it is no wonder that so many Thomasville High students are chanting "Watch the birdie" these days. E l PAUSING FOR REST after a developing session are the combined officers of the Wednesday and Thursday Photography Clubs.

A. A.'s Vote to Join the State Organization WHETHER PARTICIPATING in spring field days in neighboring cities or just play- ing softball among themselves on the school playground, the 29 members of the Girls' Athletic Association put into practice fair play and good sportsmanship that befits membership in their organization. At their first meeting in the fall the club voted to change their name from Girls' First Aid and Safety to Girls' Athletic Association. This led to their joining the state G. A. A., which en- titled them to earn badges of recognition for sports participation. Working on a points system created stiff competition and increased playing skill among the girls. With such stimulus and a natural love of sports, the G. A. A.'s accom- plished much in the course of the year. BASKETBALL, the popular choice of sports of the G. A. A.'s, claim the attention of G. A.

Highway Safety Boys Learn Good Driving Practices REVIEWING THE DRIVER'S HANDBOOK are Highway Safety Vice President David Workman, President John Stinchcomb, Treasurer Wayne Ever- hart, Secretary Dean Lunsford, and adviser J. C. McLain. IN AN AGE when hotrods and drag rac- ,, ing are prevalent throughout the United States, members of the Highway Safety Club have tried to gain insight and under- standing of the proper use and care of an automobile. Its study of the various high- way problems have taken the form of panel discussions, films, and quizzes. Learning the best method of changing a tire is typical of the practical knowledge Highway Safety boys gained this spring. Going over the demonstration car from bumper to bumper, the club soon learned the T name of the major parts and their function. Also on the spring agenda was the Written test of the National Road-e-o. Several High- i way Safety boys entered the driving division of the contest as a result. 91 F.H.A.

WHETHER MAKING APRONS for the school maids, caring for the planters in the front hall, or making a donation to Hungar- ian Relief, the energetic Future Homemak- ers of America were constantly doing good in all areas of life during the past year. These devoted girls realized that to be a real home- maker requires more than just knowing how to cook and sew. Rallies, conventions, and summer camps figure heavily in the lives of local FgH.A.'s. They still remember the wonderful time they had picnicking in Raleigh's Pullen Park after the state rally. Their biggest, most pleasant memory, however, is of the day in April when they were hostesses to a Davidson County F.H.A. rally in Memorial Park. Edith Williams, local F.H.A. president, figured prominently in this rally as county reporter. 92 LOOKING OVER the F. H. A. scrapbooks are Treasurer Annette Hall, Parliamentarian Joan Hol- lifield, Reporter Betty Bradshaw, President Edith Ann Williams, Historian Mabel Hegler, Vice Presi- dent Frances Beck, and Secretary Linda Brinkley. THOSE DANCERS who blithely waltz around the gym while others are laboriously doing the two-step at school dances are more than likely "graduates" of the Dance Club. This popular club, which only admits students who cannot dance at all, learned the waltz step at the first of the year. From that they took the box step and then the dif- ferent styles and variations of social danc- ing, both smooth and rock and roll. It doesn't take two weeks and S5200 at Arthur Murray's to learn to dance. Member- ship in the Dance Club and a lot of patience will do the job just as well. WITH PAT BOONE AND ELVIS PRESSLEY competing for top position among teenagers, these officers of both the Wednesday and Thursday Dance Clubs don't mind dancing to the old favorites. They are President Jimmy Murray, Secretary Irene Bentley, Secretary Judy Buckner, Treasurer Bobby Allen, Vice President Bonnie Young, President Mel- vin Patterson.

REVIEWING THE TYPING MANUAL are Commercial Club Vice President Runell Hinkle, Sec- retary Pansy Cagle, Treasurer Judy Buckner, and President Elizabeth Smathers. Typing, Cutting Stencils Commercial Club Tasks A TEACHER'S LIFE is certainly made more pleasant by members of the Commer- cial Club. These 35 efficient girls, each an experienced typist, are assigned to teachers at the beginning of the year. It is the mem- ber's duty to do her teacher's secretarial work, such as typing, cutting stencils, and mimeographing. Good examples of Commer- cial Club efficiency are Elizabeth Smathers' typing speed of 74 words a minute and Mar- tha '6Whiz" Hunt's daily stencil cutting. Club activity isn't confined entirely to work, however, learning is also an important part of the program. Programs on secretar- ial procedure in business offices preface each meeting. A lecture on this subject by a Thomasville secretary was a highlight of the year.

Hobby Club Combines Information with Recreation IN A CLUB YEAR that combined infor- mation with recreation, Hobby Club members learned not only more about their own hob- bies but also more about the varied and often unusual hobbies of the other members. After beginning the year with an interesting talk and exhibit on taxidermy by Troy Tysinger, many other interesting programs ensued. Among these were Douglas Ball's and Bobby Disher's practices, Leonard Smoot's program on fishing and different types of lures, Bry- ant Ragan's account and exhibit of the con- struction of model ships, and Leonard Smoot's interesting exhibit and commentary on the coins his father collected While in service overseas.

Its membership is comprised of those athletes and managers who have earned a letter in a varsity sport and also to cheer- leaders of more than one year's service to their credit. Preparing football and basketball pro- grams is the largest task of this honorary organization. This includes gathering data, seeing that copy is written and pictures are prepared, and soliciting advertisements, all necessary jobs to be undertaken in the pro- duction of interesting, varied and profitable programs. nl!" 4- T' REVIEWING FOOTBALL PROGRAMS pre- pared by the Monogram Club are Secretary Patsy Thomason, President David McColl, Vice President John Stinchcomb. and Treasurer Tommy Bowers.

They mean that it is time once again for America's favorite college and high school sport-football. At Thomasville High this year "football" was a magic word. The varsity team, sparked by the most school spirit the school has had in many years, came out second only to Lexington in the North Division of the South Piedmont Con- ference. THOMASVILLE 0 . . . FAIR GROVE 0 Before the largest football crowd to attend a football game in Memorial Park Stadium, the Bulldogs fought their close neighbors, the Fair Grove Tigers, to a 0-0 deadlock in what proved to be largely a defensive battle. As the season's opener, it served to let the local gridders get the feel of inter-school competition. THOMASVILLE 18 . . . DAVIE COUNTY 12 After two fast touchdowns by Davie Coun- ty early in the second period, the Bulldogs were not to be outdone. Not many minutes passed before Tommy Bowers broke loose on a touchdown jaunt from the 28. This was followed by a 35-yard touchdown run by Bobby Almond, climaxing a 50-yard drive. It wasn't until the final moments of the game, however, that the T'ville squad was able to break the 12-12 deadlock and pull into the winning margin. After a 37-yard run by Tommy Bowers, big John Stinchcomb bulled over to win the game. THOMASVILLE 33 . . . SPENCER 6 In their first conference game of the year the Bulldogs ran the Spencer Railroaders out of town on a rail.

McLain attributed this Bull- dog victory to "our unsurpassed hustle and excellent blocking." After an early first pe- riod 70 yard touchdown run by Dean Luns- ford, the Bulldogs could do no wrong. A sec- ond quarter pass of Alex Gibbs to Bobby Almond in the end zone and a 39-yard charge by Tommy Bowers rounded out the score. THOMASVILLE 21 . . . CHILDREN'S HOME 14 An 84-yard touchdown run by Dean Luns- ford started this game off on the right foot for the Bulldogs in Bowman-Gray Stadium.

Standing: Eighth G1'ade Football Coach G. M. Eargle, Varsity Foot- ball Coach J. C. McLain. Best Season Since 1944 In spite of touchdown plays by the Fighting Meth- odists in the second and fourth quarters, the Bulldogs held their one-touchdown lead until the final whistle with touchdowns on a quarterback sneak in the second quarter by Alex Gibbs and a third period score by Johnny Stinchcomb after a Children's Home fumble. THOMASVILLE 19 . . . ASHEBORO 7 Before 1,200 fans in the Memorial Park Stad- ium the Bulldogs defeated a team they hadn't beaten in five years-the Asheboro Blue Comets.

DEAN LUNSFORD, star Bulldog halfback, scoots 84 yards to paydirt on the first play of Thom- asville's grid contest with Kannapolis. Thomasville triumphed in this one 20-0. 109 J SPURGEON LAMBETH'S ABILITY to receive passes landed this top-notch left end on the first string in his first year of varsity play . . . HARD-HITTING TACKLE ROY STAMEY ranked among the lightest tackles in the conference . . . CONSISTENCY IN PLAYING made right guard Craig Davis a 1956 grid standout. "I think the difference in the two teams was the quarterbacking of Alex Gibbs," Coach J. C. McClain remarked after the game. "He continually checked plays at the line of scrimmage, throwing Asheboro's de- fense completely off balance." THOMASVILLE 0 . . . ALBEMARLE 41 Despite a majority in first downs for the Bulldogs, this game proved to be the biggest football disaster in the history of Thomas- ville High. Only once, in the third period, did the Bulldogs penetrate deep into enemy territory. This drive was soon thwarted, however, in a pass interception by Albemarle. THOMASVILLE 0 . . . STATESVILLE 0 A surprisingly large homecoming crowd sat in the rain and drizzle to see Thomasville battle Statesville to a 0-0 tie. This game, along with the Fair Grove game, proved to be the "sleeper" of the year. Its only bright spot occurred at halftime when Loretta Troxler was crowned Homecoming Queen. Gridders Place Seconf STATISTICS PROVED Dale Myers the top punter in the North Division of the South Piedmont Conference. THOMASVILLE 31 . . . BARIUM SPRINGS O After a seven year jinx Thomasville High footballers finally succeeded in defeating the Red Tornadoes of Barium Springs-and by a whopping large margin, at that. Scoring stars in this contest were John Stinchcomb with two touchdowns to his credit and Spurg- eon Lambeth, Dale Myers, and Tommy Bow- ers with one apiece. THOMASVILLE 0 . . . LEXINGTON 26 Bulldog supporters all agree that this de- feat hurt the most of all, for on this contest hung the championship of North Division of the South Piedmont Conference. After the game Coach Clinton Ingram summed the game up simply in this way. "We were beaten by a better ball club. They outplayed us, taking advantage of every mis- take that we made, and there were many." TOMMY BOWER'S excellent broken field running accounted for many Thomasville touchdowns. Conference Division, Lose Only Two Games DOUG STREETMAN'S outstanding defensive linebacking made him a top-notch 1956 gridder . . DAVID McCOLL'S RUGGEDNESS earned for him the position of first-string defensive linebacker . . IN HIS FIRST YEAR of first string varsity ball Dean Lunsford shined as the team's star scatback.

LATE ON A WINTER AFTERNOON, long after students and teachers had left Thomasville High for the day, the dribble of a ball and the sound of rushing feet echoed through Hauss gym. As on every afternoon the varsity cage teams practiced tirelessly to do credit to Thomasville High. It was such endless practice fat least two hours a dayj, plus proper dieting and plenty of rest, that made the Bulldogs and Bulldogettes the ter- rific influence for school spirit and good sportsmanship that they were. In looking back over the cage season, Thomasville High students and players will always remember Dale Myers' agile jump shot, Jerry Leonard's ability to steal the ball in crucial moments, Linda Carter's versatil- ity, Gene Whitten's rebounding and height 16' 4"J, Runell Hinkle's calmness, Spurgeon Lambeth's layups and driving ability, Alex Gibbs' long set shots, and the expert playing, both defensively and offensively of the other members of the teams.

Joining Conference ls Milestone for Racqueteers IN ITS FOURTH YEAR at Thomas- ville High, tennis has finally come into its own as a leading spring sport and strong competitor in popularity With baseball. This is partly due to the team's becoming a member of the new- ly formed North Piedmont Conference for tennis and partly due to increased spectator interest. The 1956 net season Went down in the books as better than average in many respects. Outstanding factors in its success were Jimmy Bodie's playing consistency, "Peanut" Leonard's mean net smashes and serves, David How- ard's quick overhand serves, and Rock Teague's reputation as the team's fast- est rising player. Craig Davis and Jimmy Sutton, the remaining return- ing lettermen, rounded out the team and gave it depth. l2O ATTENTION MOUNTS Jimmy Bodie, number one netter on the 1956 team, toughens up to meet the challenge with stamina and the will to win. Baseball Remains King of Spring Sports WITH RETURNING LETTERMEN Larry Rudisill, David McColl, Billy Cook, and Darold Cranford forming the nucleus of this year's baseball team, Coach Clinton Ingram's boys have much in their favor from the start. The highest batting average 1.4075 on the team is held by Larry Rudisill, third baseman and right fielder. Con- sistency in playing is the key to Larry's success. David McColl's receiving abil- ity have held the team in good stead in many crucial moments. Winner of the Baseball Sportsmanship Trophy in 1956, Billy Cook is the Thomasville High nine's star first baseman. Billy has the reputation of being the tean'1's most powerful hitter. Darold Cranford, noted for his pitching ability and fast ball specialty, rounds out the honored foursome. MOST OUTSTANDING SLUGGERS, selected by the 1956 baseball team, are Catcher David McColl and Third Baseman Larry Rudisill.
