THOMASVILLE HIGH SCHOOI
Thomasville, North Carolina
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
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.

OVER THE RAILROAD, under the railroad, across
the railroad, through the railroad-the lives of Thomas-
ville High students cannot escape the railroad.

Dr. Johnson, one of Thomas-
ville's most distinguished sons, has
distinguished himself not only as a
leading historian of our day but
also as a television personality. As
news analyst on WAAM-TV, Bal-
timore, he won the Peabody, Hill-
man, and DuPont awards-three
of televisionls biggest prizes.

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-

Administration and Faculty
WITH THE TASK of planning and
supervising the building of Thomasville's
new senior high before them this admin-
istration will surely go down in Thomas-
ville City Schools history as an important
and decisive group in the making of a
better Thomasville. 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

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-
To Better the Life
"I ONCE OWNED A HAMMER," popu-
lar Thomasville High Principal W. S. Hor-
ton mournfully asserts over the P. A.
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.

SENIOR CLASS MASCOTS Mike Eddinger
and Janie McLain smilingly look forward to the
day when they will be seniors.
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
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
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.
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,
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.

AS FINAL PREPARATION for the

among this class's memories are the elec-

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-

In her 29 years at Thomasville High this

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
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

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. To the approximately 160 Sophs, theirs is
a very special and wonderful year.

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
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

Under Jim Bodie Council Makes Great Strides
And thus is offered another problem
for careful consideration by the Stu-
dent Council, the student governing
body at Thomasville High. 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.

cessful campaigns-School Spirit VVeek4are Sec-

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

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

advertising, successes, and the thrill when the

A Band Member's Life Is Varied and Interesting
PLODDING through ankle-deep mud in White
shoes to do halftime shows at football games,
joining in the joking and fun on the buses re-
turning from music contests and other band ac-
tivities, belting out 'tRock Around the Clock" at
pep rallies, and dolefully listening to Director
Chester LitWin's famous last Words, 'Tm not
going to fight you people"-these are all a part
of the Wonderful and often unpredictable life of
a band member. 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.

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

Spotlight Is Playmakers' Gift to the School
THE LITTLE PLAYMAKERS will be re-

fine acting ability but also for the spotlight fa
professional model capable of many special

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-

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

THE ART OF MAKE-UP is practiced to good
advantage by Junior Dramatics Vice President

'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,
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

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.

Freshmen Become Familiar with Broadway Play
THE PAJAMA GAME-a current
Broadway musical hit-is thoroughly
familiar to members of the Freshman
Dramatics Club. 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

Debaters Become Well Informed on Farm Policy
DEBATING IS FUN-ask any debater.
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-

Hi-Y Boys Live by
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

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.

WHEN THE TRI-HI-Y was di-

because of the large enrollment,
the upperclassmen formed the

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,

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,

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.
GRADING PAPERS-an important part of the training of a future teacher-are club members, first

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. Here Art Club Treasurer
Bobby White, Sergeant at Arms Delores Barrier,
Vice President Harold Robinson, President Eleanor

L. 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

Thomasville Bible Club
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.
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.

G. 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
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.

Highway Safety Vice President David Workman,
President John Stinchcomb, Treasurer Wayne Ever-

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Sparlced by Student Support, Bulldogs Chalk Up:
FALLING LEAVES mean more than just
the end of summer and return of students
to school. 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-
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
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. Tommy Bowers, John
Stinchcomb, Alex Gibbs, Don Deese , and
Doug Streetman all contributed touchdown
points to the Thomasville victory column.
THOMASVILLE 20 . . . KANNAPOLIS O
Coach J. C. 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.

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.
John Stinchcomb, Tommy Bowers, and Alex Gibbs
were the scoring stars in this one, running the
ball twelve, ten, and five yards, respectively.
Bobby Jones, a native of Thomasville, scored the
only touchdown for Asheboro in the third quarter.

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

spot occurred at halftime when Loretta

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

and Boys' Varsity Basketball Coach L. D. Shealy.
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.

IN ITS FOURTH YEAR at Thomas-
