Cameron Advisor Celia Hooper Assistant Editor Teresa Rimer THE 1968 GROWLER IS At a Friday afternoon pep rally before a big game, TSHS students prove to the boys that they are behind them all the way with that “Old Bulldog Spirit!” THE POWER TO INSPIRE For making this school year one of the best yet at TSHS; for lend¬ ing your support to all activities that make up the fun, fellowship and learning at TSHS; for cooperating with each other to build a better at¬ mosphere in which to live, work and learn; and for displaying that “Bull¬ dog Spirit” that TSHS is famous for, we dedicate this GROWLER to you, the Student Body of Thomasville Senior High School and to the per¬ son who we feel has done more to inspire his students and instill the “Bulldog Spirit” throughout the en¬ tire Student Body, Mr. Wayne Shad- rick. 4 TSHS on the Go... Youth is on the move. This fast pacing generation is constantly dri¬ ving onward and upward discover¬ ing new realms of life and attaining its goals only to set new and better ones. The search for answers to our questions is an endless one. We journey far in life, often stumbling, but always returning to this basic knowledge we absorb in our stud¬ ies and everyday relations at school. During this speeding time that we strive for knowledge of our fel¬ low man, we learn, through the ex¬ periences encountered, how we move step by step into the future. Yes, we demand action; always looking for the times and places where we might find it while en¬ gaged in attaining our goals. Dur¬ ing this time of growing up, matur¬ ing, and finding ourselves we find that we must move so that we will not be left behind. We find these daily actions becoming a big part of our lives - classes, friends, fellow¬ ship, games, dances, clubs, sadness, happiness, and a spirit uniting the entire student body, not as Sopho¬ mores, Juniors, and Seniors, but as ONE. This is TSHS on the Go! 5 Students Display That Bulldog Spirit by Proving TSHS students prove with their spirit that “T-ville’s Tops and We Can Do!” Spirit also runs high among the Bulldogs as they prove that they also are “On the Go!” In order to keep “On the Go,” every Sophomore has to have a Senior to lean on. Insane from the noise and hub-bub of the construction work outside her room, Mrs. Martin is driven to drastic measures to hurry up the completion of the new building in displaying her “Bulldog Spirit.” 6 TSHS is on the Go With the persistent chant of “GO, GO, GO” the cheerleaders and fans prove to the Bulldogs that they are behind them 100%. It is the attention from one who appreciates us that keeps us “On the Go.” Mills Home students join in the fun and fellowship each afternoon at 3:15 before their bus leaves the parking lot. With Coach Cushwa at the wheel, our Dogs are still raring and ready to go after one of Thomasville’s biggest victories. LDOGS 7 As the year moves on, each experience we share throughout school life becomes a precious memory. Working together is a big part of the fun when it comes to proving the student’s pride in TSHS. We Share all the Good Times 8 ■ That Make This Year Special a 1 Si Spirit runs high before football games as TSHS’s Bulldog fans and “Cur¬ ley” Miller join in the fun of Friday morning hall pep rallies sponsored by Fulp’s Fearless Fighting Furies. “They’re from T-ville and we couldn’t be prouder,” to have the Class of ’68 and TSHS represented by such two great animals as Baby Huey and our Bulldog mascot. Everyone shares that true Dixie spirit at games and in all campus activi¬ ties. 9 To prove that “Our Spirit Is the Greatest,” class unity prevailed in the nine-hour Marathon Pep Rally at the big chair. “Devil’s Angels?” No. It’s just four spirited Bulldog fans preparing to lead the Baby Huey parade to prove that TSHS is behind our Dogs, win or lose! TSHS Discovers This year has been one year in the life of all TSHS students that will never be forgotten; not because any earth-shattering records have been broken or some great mysterious happening has occurred. It will not be forgotten because this year we have learned what unity means. We know now that through teamwork and giv¬ ing unselfishly of ourselves, TSHS has grown in ways that are not necessarily physical. Learning to laugh to¬ gether when the going gets rough, pretending not to care, but deep inside knowing that by exerting a little “Bulldog Spirit” those “impossible” things really are quite small, is all a part of this new unity. Shouting and clowning around with each other every day made the school year more special. And through all this sharing, the students became closer. No longer were there three distinct classes; only one body of some of the greatest students to be found anywhere! True “Brotherly Love” is displayed just before the crowning of the 1967 Powder Puff King. 10 Ricky just can’t seem to get over all the good food served at the August plan¬ ning session of the Student Council. This meeting is held in order to set goals and make plans for the coming school year for all TSHS students. Importance of Class Unity This is the beautiful sight that all Bulldog fans love to see after a hard-fought game that proves our Dogs are “On the Go!” This is a typical scene every afternoon when that final bell rings and there is no class distinction throughout the campus of TSHS, for all Sophlmores, Juniors, and Seniors alike head for the parking lot at 3:15. 3:16 kS - 11 rSHS YOUTH 20 » J$S9 Wj t2Ue.noov£ 13 Engaged in a battle of wits between the Federalist and Nation- An active interest in the modem world is one of the reasons that Danny Clodfelter, al Parties, Susan Allen and Marian Dove demonstrate an ac- Charles Kenerley and Clavie Cranford are candidates for the Morehead Scholarship. tive phase of Girls’ State. TSHS Students Merit Honors From the halls of TSHS come many students who have merited high honors. Among these are the Girls’ State representatives, the Morehead Scholarship entries, and the DAR citizenship awardee. In addition to these students, there are those who seek to broaden their education by going to school in the summer, a sacrifice for anyone. Whether they are developing high standards of citizenship, reaping the benefits from a scholarly career, or seeking broadened enlightenment, these students will represent our school well. In the wheel of fortune, these young people will succeed. They are a crucial part of the TSHS ON THE GO. Terri Price, recipient of the DAR Citizenship Award realizes that a knowledge of citizenship qualities is based on a study of past government tactics. Summer school students are Terry Bird, Brian Jasperse, Clavie Cranford, Polly Collett, Suzanne Carlton, Georgette Foster, Sharon Fritts, Nancy Leonard, Mike Stilwell, and Charles Gilliam. All studied at Wake Forest or Western Carolina with the exception of Clavie Cranford, who studied electronics at the University of Virginia and Charles Gilliam, who studied anthropology at Mount Herman, Massachusetts. Marshals, Symbol of Intellectual Proficiency Intellectual advancement has be¬ come a vital standard of Thomas- ville High School. It is through this achievement that students are able to cope with learning on a higher level. Garbed in the traditional red and black ribbons, the twelve marshals wear the symbol of intellectual pro¬ ficiency at TSHS. The girls, wearing white dresses, and the boys, wearing dark suits, present a dignified and discreet scene. TSHS Marshals for 1967-68 are (From Top) Jeanne Fesperman, Gail Jarrell, Patsy Floyd, Marian Dove, Janice Fansler, Amelia Sisk, Susan Allen, Polly Collett, Barbara Poppe, Danny Clodfelter, Charles Kenerley and Clavie Cranford (not pictured). Their first and immediate duty was to serve as ushers during the spring commencement exercises. When the school year began the marshals were given another duty, serving as ushers during P.T.A. meetings. With these students representing our school, we can certainly have a feeling of pride and respect for them and for TSHS. Danny Clodfelter, Chief Marshal, maintains a working unity among the marshals. Acting a courteous hostess, Polly Collett registers parents. 2 5908 15 00215870 2 .OLn - y i M ' .. ' .«y . - _ ' nt y ■ I« U Ciy«- t r u December 6, 196? Mrs. K. A. Cameron Thomasville Senior High School 410 Unity Street Thonasville, North Carolina 27360 Bear Mrs. Cameron; I have selected Julia Survell as the " All-American Girl. " Her essay on life was sensitive and thoughtful. She sounds like a young lady who has firm convictions and high standards. Julia ' s concept that a life of service is truly rewarding lines up with ny own philosophy and perhaps this is why I selected her. My congratulations to all the contest¬ ants. Each and every one was worthy of the honor and they are all extremely attractive. My warm, good wishes to Julia Burwell and heartiest congratulations to her. Sincerely, Al:brw T.nrl . 16 ' ra Miss Julia Burwell Miss Thomasville Senior High 17 The Homecoming Queen candidates for 1967- 68 were Sharon Fritts, Julia Burwell, Marian Dove, Terri Price and Judy Teer. October 13 marked this year’s annual Homecoming for the alumni of Thomasville Senior High School. Before the eyes of 4,000 spectators, the TSHS Bulldogs defeated the Al¬ bemarle team. During the half time of this vic¬ torious game, the Bulldogs rendered the spotlight to the crowning of the Homecoming Queen. Prior to the game, five Senior girls were nomi¬ nated as candidates for the title. Elected by the student body, the new queen was Miss Marian Laverne Dove. Accepting the crown with a look of radiance, Marian is a true exam¬ ple of the spirit of TSHS. 18 Miss Davidson County Entry Miss Terri Price Chosen by a panel of students and teachers. Miss Diane Conrad, an attractive senior, was our Miss Merry Christmas Entry. Judged with regard to beauty and poise, she and four other contes¬ tants gave spontaneous answers to questions rapid¬ ly asked by the panel. For her talent presenta¬ tion, Diane sang " I want To Be Free” and “To¬ morrow,” one of her original compositions. Characterized by personality and poise, Diane well represented Thomasville High in the area competition in Fexington. This year Miss Te rri Price was chosen by the faculty to represent Thomasville Senior High School in the Miss Davidson County contest, which is held in October at the Davidson County Fair. Beauty, poise and an extremely active inter¬ est in her school are a few of the many qualifica¬ tions Terri possessed in order to gain this honor. Though Terri did not win, she did an excellent job of portraying TSHS Youth On the Go.

Seniors know that this is the end of their secondary school life; the end of the beginning. They look back and think about all the won¬ derful things they have done and all the good times they have had. This class anticipates the beginning of a new and exciting experience. Our seniors, the Class of ’68, have done a wonderful job leading the student body throughout the entire school year. They are embarking on a new journey, taking with them knowledge gained during the past twelve years. They are leaving be¬ hind them many accomplishments; they have affected TSHS profound¬ ly. They are leaving a deep im¬ pression that proves that TSHS seniors are “All Right Up Tight!” Senior Class mascots, Lori Anne Allen and John Scott, Fit not only into lockers but into all spe¬ cial senior activities.

Politeness and manners are characteristic of Sandra Bumworth and James Payne, Most Courteous. ’68 Superlatives No one person excells in every¬ thing, but certain people are noted around TSHS for their different ac¬ complishments. These people have gained the admiration of their fellow students and were thus selected as superlatives. Selecting superlatives was not an easy task to undertake for the Senior Class this year. There were nomina¬ tions, voting, and revoting; but, fin¬ ally, the honors were bestowed upon twenty-eight members of the Senior Class. These twenty-eight students are naturally the “cream of the crop” at TSHS and are admired and respected by everyone. “Curse you Red Baron” screams Ricky Kanoy as he bails out of Sally Beck’s wounded Sopwith Camel, dis¬ playing the characteristics which earn them the title of Wittiest. 42 You may look the world over but it is doubtful that you could find two more rounded people as Preston Cranford and Terri Price, Best-All-Round. Portray Our Best Susan Allen and Clavie Cranford are “forever blowing bub¬ bles” as they are absorbed in perfecting the art of bubble¬ blowing as Most Intellectual. “One more word out of you, you dirty rat, and I’ll. ..Amelia Sisk and Tommy Baity, Best Sports, are always agreeable and compatible with everyone they meet. 43 “And 1-2-3, hand over head, bend your knees, you’re doing fine, and 1-2-3.” Mary McLain encourages Steve McCulloch to practice so they will maintain their title as Best Dancers. " And when we get through here, we get to mop the floor . . Danny Clodfelter and Marian Dove already show signs of being the two people who are Most Likely To Succeed. Caught in an off moment, Angie Allison and Jeff Hege shatter their image as Neatest. “Keep that up and you’ll be another Charles Atlas in no time”, says Eddie Williamson to Martha Culler, Most Athletic. It is plain to see that as Most Popular, Bruce Mills and Debby Sykes need an answering service. The beauty of the out-of-doors seems to enhance the attractiveness of Best Looking, Gene Vaughn and Sharon Fritts. Senior Leaders Spark Successful Year Being a superlative may be the dream of every senior but being a TSHS Senior certainly is the dream of every student. A senior represents leadership and a quality of character unknown in any other class. Being a senior means having responsibilities and reaping the rewards of this re¬ sponsibility. Our Class of 1968 may be small but its accomplishments will long be remembered. Their enthusiasm at athletic events and their support of all athletic teams helped boost the spirit of the entire school. Their Baby Huey Club Parades were bigger and better than ever. Their support could really be seen when they led everybody in contri¬ butions to the love fund. They gave $120.00 to the fund which far sur¬ passed the amount given by juniors or sophomores. Excelling scholastically is a trait of this class; producing some of the greatest minds yet to come from TSHS. It takes twelve long years of hard work to become a senior. And then to be remembered it takes that little bit of something extra that this class of ’68 truly has. Most talented, Diane Conrad and Phil Christman, display their talent and love for music. 45 SENIOR STA TISTICS Seniors On The Go . . .

STANDING: Mrs. Eva Nell Dorsett. Mr. Leighton Hilton. Junior Class Officers are: Mike Bodenhimer, Vice-President; Steve Noblitt, President; Linda Clodfelter, Secretary; D. D. Ott, Treasurer. Juniors often find certain subjects very hard, but with Howard Bumbgardner’s brilliant mind he finally sees the light! “Don’t try to tell a junior that there are 60 minutes in an hour — there couldn’t be with 30 hours in a day!” You can always recognize a junior as he runs through the halls every morning with that “ooh—ah” ofTSHS. “What color are you getting?” “What size is yours?” These are the questions heard in October after or¬ ders are placed for classrings — the symbol of the Junior Class. Striving to boost the unity of the Junior Class, juniors carry out num¬ erous projects and activities through¬ out the year. Their enthusiasm was character¬ ized by the annual magazine sale. They broke all records since 1965, exceeding their goal of $4,000. This money goes to finance the highlight of their year — the Junior—Senior Prom. Juniors break their backs working days and nights, often giv¬ ing up valuable study hours to give the seniors the best Junior —Senior Prom ever! 52 Lea Abbot Robbie Anderson Doug Adams Pam Ashmore Terri Allen John Atwood Bonnie Allison Delores Baker Dennis Anderson Robert Baker Juniors Plan Early for a Great Senior Year i lit 4 Judy Baity Donnie Beasley Kathy Ballard Dianne Beck Kathy Barnes Bill Bird Bobby Joe Bates Jimmy Black Yvonne Batten Diana Bobo PSAT Scores Are Good Indication for Juniors Mike Bodenheimei Lewis Bowers Linda Bowers Janice Brewer Andy Brooks Donna Brown Howard Bumgarner Gerry Burchfield Jim Burris Steve Burroughs Larry Burton James Byrd Danny Caldwell Judy Calhoun Carolyn Callicut Debbie Camp Suzanne Carlton Linda Carter Lonnie Clinard Linda Clodfelter 54 of Future Success on College Board Exams Jeff Cochraine Lanny Collett Marilyn Cox Patsy Cox Patricia Craddock Susan Cranford Jon Craven Sammy Craven Amy Creech Marie Damphouse Mike Daniel Gloria Davidson Lanny Davis Greta Day Rebecca Deal 55 Taney DeHart Tom Dorety Robert Dula Deborah Edwards Magaline Farabee Diane Ferguson Austin Fine Karen Fitzgerald Ray Fortenberry Brenda Foster Georgette Foster Lynn Gantt Loria Gathings Don Goins Richard Gordon Class Rings Symbolize Junior Year for Many Students John Grainger Carolyn Grubb Elise Hair James 0.

Big Senior Dogs, middle-sized Junior Dogs, and itsy-bitsy Sophomore Pups all unite in proving that the spirit of Thomasville Senior High School students is the GREATEST! 64 Sophomores Become Part of a Three Year Adventure Sophomore Class Advisors are, SITTING: Mrs. Judith Dolle, Miss Eloise Buie, Mrs. Aileen Myers, Mrs. M. G. Almond. STANDING: Mr. Wilburn Everhart, Mr. Kent Willard, Mr. Larry Younts. Sophomore Class Officers are Ricky Floyd, President; James Steele, Treasurer; Jean Regan, Vice-President; Susan Cagle, Secretary. Traditional ribbing of “lost” sophomores, while perhaps over¬ worked, is not totally unfounded. They are suddenly faced with the mysteries of myriads of new sub¬ jects, new schedules, and new scho¬ lastic demands. With the help of understanding teachers, and gradual self-acclim- ation, the daze wears off. Sopho¬ mores fit into the school’s academic life and extra-curricular activities with ease and enthusiasm. This is evident by their display of posters for football and basketbal l games. They have rallied our spirit by their support at pep rallies and all school functions. They have also proved their scholastic abilities by making up a large percent of the honor roll. The class of 1970 has begun its drive to be the most capable future leaders of Thomasville Senior High School. Senior boys show no mercy to meek sophomore girls, especially during Twirp Week. 65 Darlene Angle Linda Ashburn Dale Atwood Ricky Baity Beth Ball Eddie Ball Ralph Ball Debbie Batten Diane Batten Walter Bean Darryl Beck John Beck Terry Bird Victor Black Cathy Blake Melissa Blake Danny Bland Lee Bowles Sophomores Become Integral Part of School Activities Miriam Bowman Joe Boyles Ronald Bratton Martha Brewer Van Brewer Pam Brinkley Libby Britt Jackie Brooks Bibb Bruton Cathy Bunting David Burkhart Vickie Burton 66 Susan Cagle June Carter Bucky Clark Vickie Couch Mary John Cameron Sam Carter Dwight Clinton Donald Crafton Thomas Cannon Mary Lou Carver Debbie Coggins Steve Cranford Tim Capel Ann Cash Debra Cole Kenny Crouch Annette Carpenter Faye Caylor Sandra Coleman Gerry Crowder Tony Carrick Jo Ann Clapp Danny Connolly James Culler 67 Sophomores Love Learning about Brenda Cullipher Gary Curry Gregory Dorsett Mark Dove Carol Fisher Karen Fisher Janice Fouts Judy Freeman Mona Czarnecki Mark Deaton Priscilla Dula Willie Eaddy Judy Flannery Brenda Floyd Sheri Gantt Ricky Garner Charles Anna Dickens Penny Diggs Mike Edwards Diane Faulkner Ricky Floyd Lewis Foster Jim Gilliam Toni Gilmore Kay Trantham controls her urge to scream by gnashing her teeth while being terrified by a snake in Biology. “CREEPY CRA WLERS” in Biology Mary Ruth Gravely Joyce Ann Hamilton Joyce Sue Hamilton Tommy Hamilton Debbie Harrington Diane Harrington Imagene Harrington Keith Harrison Jane Harrison Phil Harrison David Hartley Terry Harvey Cathy Harville Michael Hedrick Clarence Hegler Janice Helms James Helms Dale Hiatt Jeff Hiatt Jimmy Hiatt Billy Hill Gloria Hill Greg Hill James Hill Teresa Hill Wilson Hill Teresa Holder Thomas Honeycutt Randy Hoover Carol Hubbard 69 Cathy Hughes Debra Hulon Sharon Humphrey Roy Honeycutt Gerry Hunsucker Ann Hunt Mike Ingram Beverly Jackson Jimmy Jackson Craig Jarrett Penny Jarrett Margaret Jennings Brenda Johnson Janice Johnson Mary Jane Johnson Larry Jones Alvin Kennedy Tempie Kennedy Sophomores Marvel at TSHS Phil Kennedy Carolyn Kindley Cathy Kirk Bobie Knotts Phillip Lambert Lyn Leonard Robin Lewallen Brent Litwin Penny Long Milton Lowe Ruth McAllister Dianne McCarn 70 Daniel MacDonald Lynda McDonald Janie McLain Carolyn McPherson Sherry Mayes Bob May ton Susan Means Anthony Mitchell Jo Lynn Munday Debbie Myers James Myers Michael Myers Steven Myers Shannon Nealey Larry Nesbit Evelyn Norton Phil Olshinshi Billy Owens Gazelia Payne Clyde Perryman Reata Pilkington George Poppe Shirley Price Susan Price On College Night each student decides on the college of his choice.

BY-WORD OF ALL BULLDOGS 75 • H ; 77 The 1967-68 TSHS marching band perpetuates a proud tradition as it lives up to high standards of excellence. Beauty and Talent Characterize One of the major functions of our band is its performance as a marching unit. Many times during the year the band is called on to perform at various gatherings, the highlight of which is the beautiful pageantry of the halftime shows presented at all home football games. And, of course, a football game wouldn’t seem complete without the stirring national an¬ them performed by our marching band. Contributing in an important way are the young men of the color guard. One young man who really works hard with Mr. Litwin to line up marching performances is the drum major, Bob Hinkle. Stern and tall. Bob Hinkle, drum major for 1967-68 leads our band during its beautiful half-time performances. Oops! Keeping his shako on and looking com¬ posed at the same time presented a challenge for Bob. The stern looks on the faces of these young men: Mike Styers, Johnny Lawing, Brent Litwin, Phil Bean, and Steve Madison indicate the importance of their task as the 1967-68 Color Guard. " n : ' • ‘T The free time of TSHS m ajorettes is consumed in rigorous drills and practice sessions after school Pretty Sharon Fritts, chief majorette, leads and on weekends. TSHS high-steppers. Pageantry of TSHS Band and Majorettes Adding color and beauty to all of the band’s marching engage¬ ments are seven lovely, talented majorettes. Under the skillful gui¬ dance of chief, Sharon Fritts, these girls work hard preparing intricate routines involving careful co-ordin¬ ation in timing and rhythm for each engagement. When spectators are huddled in the stands watching a football game or parade, these young ladies brave the bitter cold with bright smiles and beautiful routines. Hours of hard work characterize this group of girls as they represent TSHS proudly. Nancy Ward, Swanee Ward, Sharon Fritts (chief), Diane Conrad, Ellen Spoolman, Maureen Schneider, and Polly Collett are the talented and attractive 1967-68 TSHS majorettes. 79 Members of the Woodwind Section are, FRONT ROW: Collett, Hanes, Spoolman, Ritchie, Cole, Young, Hiatt, Wade, Whisnant. SECOND ROW: Lawing, Hinkle, Ferguson, Jordan, Litwin, Yokely, Walker, Hiott, Mitchell, Hunsucker. THIRD ROW: Humphrey, Wilhite, Ward, Carpenter, Jarrett, Calhoun, Ward. Fritts. Deaton, Carter, Madison. FOURTH ROW: Cagle, Dickens, Harrison, Couch, Kennedy, Jackson, Jennings, Hundley, Conrad, Schneider, Gantt, Swain. Hard Practice and Diligence Make the Dedication and talent characterize our band director, Mr. Litwin. Our band’s renown as an excel¬ lent unit brings invitations from many outstanding festivals each year. Any unit as large as our band is made up of several integral parts, ail striving for the success of the whole. This is true of the TSHS band. Woodwind, brass, percussion, major¬ ettes, drum major, color guard, and an excellent director—all go to¬ gether to make up a great high school band. Sixth period everyday brings together this talented, hard¬ working segment of “on the go” students skilled in music. Long hours of practice and just plain hard work result in a good performance— gratifying both to performers and audience. At last the close of the day has come, and with it comes the end of band practice. The students eagerly put their instruments UP! 80 Members of the Brass Section are, FRONT ROW: Hilliard, Moorefield, Dorsett, D. McDonald. SECOND ROW: Chandler, Crowder, Jasperse, Anderson, Craven, Terry, Hill, Vaughn, Bean, Black, Cranford. THIRD ROW: Newsome, Hedrick, Tucker, Christman, Snyder, Myers, Lamb, R.

Hiott, Smith, Burkhart, Lowe. 1967-68 Version ofTSHS Band Successful One of our band’s many opportunities to demonstrate its talent to the community was the Christmas parade. The beauty of sound and color the TSHS band contributed to the parade bore witness to the hours of practice that went into the performance. These five young men bear our colors proudly as they pre¬ cede the band on the field to open each home football game. Countless Memories of Band Are Priceless Members of the Percussion Section are: Collett, Perryman, Cranford, Bowers, Gordon, Anderson, Boyles, Crowder. Someone became a little over zealous in pound¬ ing that big drum; right, Jackie? High school life is a time for amassing lasting, precious memor¬ ies. One never forgets the fun or the hard work. This is true of our band. Three years of hard practice and close as¬ sociation with fellow-band mem¬ bers result in the formation of a close-knit fraternity. Ninety stu¬ dents with a common interest and talent in music become fast friends after years of practicing and travel¬ ling together. Certainly no segment of our student body is together as much as is our band. The antics and hilarity of the group endear their memory to the student body. The memories of the fun they’ve had while they worked will be some of the most precious memories of high school life—a time they’ll never forget. Band members know that practice makes perfect, and their expressions show that they’ve had plenty today. They’re all thinking, “Oh well, just one more for the photographer!” T’ville teamwork is in evidence as these members of the Sportsman’s Club help clean the school grounds. Happiness for Ricky Kanoy is bagging a fine rabbit. Perhaps Rick would not be quite so happy if he knew that Ronnie Bailey’s rifle barrel was pointed nonchalantly at his head! Safety in Sports Comes to TSHS in Formation of Sportsman’s Club Can you clean a gun, make a duck blind, or explain the parts of a rod and reel? The members of TSHS’s Sportsman’s Club can master any one of these skills and more. Their advisor, Mr. Willard helps the boys with the fascinating study of living with nature as a sportsman. To en¬ joy sports such as fishing, hunting, and boating one must understand the correct procedure for operating sports equipment. Thus, the ulti¬ mate aim of the Sportsman’s Club becomes: “To add excitement to learning the safer way to enjoy good times.” Experts in the art of rod and reel are officers: Eddie Williamson, Secretary; Ronnie Bailey, Vice President; Mac Childers, Pete Knight, Sergeants-at-Arms; and Max Rollins, President. 83 What Makes Our World Click ? Members of the Science Club are, FRONT ROW: Newsome, Jordan, P. Cranford, Black, Day, Hiatt, Slack, Smith, Allen. SECOND ROW: Ingram, Carter, Culler. Yokely, Whicker, Hill, Litwin, Dorsett, C. Cranford, Ferguson. THIRD ROW: Snyder, Jarrett, Harrison, Wall, Lawing, Henderson, Bean, Honey¬ cutt. Huffman, Spenser, Burkhart. FOURTH ROW: Ball, Clinard, Styers, Stilwell, Leonard, Crowder, Gilliam, Hedrick, Tew, Jackson, Taylor, Batten. Clavie Cranford is not really interviewing Jim Hill; they are conducting an experiment in sound. What makes our world click? This question supplied the initiative for a group of scientifically minded stu¬ dents at TSHS when they began a Science Club in our school. One of many new ideas in our extra-curri¬ cular program has been the begin¬ ning of special interest groups. Un¬ der the capable guidance of Mrs. Tice, these students tackle the prob¬ lems in the world of physical science. Operating on the principle two heads are better than one, they multiplied the effect to involve 45 students. Through projects, reports, field trips, and bull sessions, they explore the world of science collec¬ tively—learning from and adding to the knowledge and opinions of fellow-students. Perhaps these fu¬ ture scientists will make some dra¬ matic break-through in the scienti¬ fic world as a result of the stimula¬ tion provided in the Science Club. Officers, John Lawing, Corresponding Secretary; John Black, Treasurer; Ronnie Crowder, Vice President; Clavie Cranford, President; and Brenda Allen, Secretary brush up on Scientific knowl¬ edge. 84 Members of the Fine Arts Club are, FRONT ROW: Dula, Russell, Ward, B. Harris, Hanes, Clinton, Conrad. Bobo, McCam, Brewer, Todd. SECOND ROW: Day, Reid, M. Cox, T. Hedrick, Foster, Ingram, P. Cox, Edwards, Floyd, Brown, Wilhite, G. Payne, R. Smith, Camp.

Fine Arts Club Stimulates Interest in “Finer Things of Life ” Genuine interest in culture and the finer things of life led to the formation of the Fine Arts Club which instantly became one of the largest clubs in our extra-curricular program. The interest in this club was so great that the turnout for membership quite overwhelmed the advisor, Mrs. Morrison. Because of the large number of students inter¬ ested, it was decided to divide them into three interest groups: Art, Music, and Drama; thus, a brand- new club received enough attention to allow it to be split three ways. On the agenda for the year are concerts, plays, and other things of cultural value. By exposure to these things, this segment of our “on the go” student body enriches our high school community—a contribution truly worthy of praise. Danny Clodfelter, President, points out the different phases of the club to his enthusiastic officers: Tim Smith, Chaplain; Celia Hooper, Vice President; Barbara Poppe, Treasurer; and Robert Adams, Secretary. Fine Arts Club members portray the various Dhases of the club on club day in September. 85 Members of Chorus are, FRONT ROW: Caylor, Gilmore, King, Carver, Cash, Watts, Dula, Reid, Helms, Allison, Thompson, Smith, Miss Montegomery (advisor), Debby Sykes (seated). SECOND ROW: Owen, Musser, Skeen, Jackson, Craddock, Deal, Highfill, McAllister, Hill, Hulon, Johnson. THIRD ROW: Southern, Jones, Ashmore, Damphouse, Cox, Brown, Beck, Shell, Edwards, Hill, Rife, Price. FOURTH ROW: Burris, Hardin, Goins, Home, Smith, Rollins, Freeman, Kanoy, Wallen, Powell, Williams. Songs of TSHS Chorus Fill the Heights With Music TSHS stands out in many areas, but one of the most outstanding phases of any school’s activities is the musical ability of the students. This is another area of excellence at TSHS. Under the direction of Miss Montegomery, the chorus strives to develop the musical talent of the school. Through the chorus, stu¬ dents learn the proper way to lift their voices in song. Reading notes, learning new types of songs, and performing in and out of school are just a few of the things members of the chorus receive experience in do¬ ing. The chorus meets during school time, and the students receive a unit credit for their class participa¬ tion. A fine organization with praise¬ worthy accompanist and dedicated leade rship is the TSHS chorus. TSHS Chorus members brave the discomforts of a cold practice room to lift their voices in song. Without the skill and dexterity of the pianist, Debby Sykes, the chorus would not be the suc¬ cess it is. Miss Montegomery ' s vivacity and enthusiasm lift the chorus to greater heights. 86 Co-ordination ofTSHS “On the Go ” Credited to Co-operation is the word which best describes the successful co-ord¬ ination of TSHS’s many clubs. This co-operation is the result of the work of a special club in our school —The Presidents Club. Every club’s president is a member of this club. The purpose of this unique club is to balance and smooth out the year’s activities so that major projects don’t conflict. In providing this invaluable service to the school. these students take time out from their already-busy schedules to meet and iron out difficult prob¬ lems. Through this club, there is communication between clubs. Un¬ der the capable guidance of co-ord- inator, Bobby Joe Bates, the results of these communications are an¬ alyzed and recorded for the benefit not only of this year’s Presidents’ Club but for future use as well. Beverly Harris, Clavie Cranford, and Bobby Hinkle, members of the Presidents Club, are practicing for their duty—balancing and co-ordinating all of the TSHS “on the go” activities. Presidents Club The co-ordination of TSHS clubs depends on Bobby Joe Bates. His job is to set up a student calendar and avoid conflicts. Members of the Presidents Club are, FRONT ROW: Thompson, Younts, Helms. SECOND ROW: Harris, Brinkley. Sisk. Culler. Bow man. THIRD ROW Bates, P. Cranford, Ward. Clodfelter, C. Cranford. FOURTH ROW: Noblitt, Ball, Rollins, Hinkle. Hege, Floyd. 87 " Honest! I’m not looking!” says impartial Ronnie Crowder about his campaign poster. Pitching in to keep our school on the go are the Student Council officers Bobby Joe Bates, Vice President; Marian Dove, Secretary; Charles Kenerley, Treasurer; and Preston Cranford, President. School Spirit and Hard Work Throughout the school year, be¬ hind every successful project and working hard to make this school ear the best ever, was the Student Council. Back-breaking, time-con¬ suming work characterized the year’s activities for this busy, school-spirited organization. From the very beginning of the school year, the Student Council has been on the go, ready and willing when there is a job to do. Sophomores benefited from an annual Student Council service pro¬ ject, Sophomore Orientation Day, designed to familiarize Sophomores with our campus. Students and par¬ ents recognized the Student Coun¬ cil’s efforts in the successful College Night and Career Day programs. Student Council served the com¬ munity with a true gesture of good and Christmas cheer by bringing joy to three families. For the enter¬ tainment of the students there were interesting assemblies, intramural sports, and powderpuff football— all the results of a hard-working Stu¬ dent Council dedicated to service in our school and community. Personality and capable leadership are the in¬ gredients that make Preston Cranford a good Student Council president. Here Preston pre¬ sides over a regular meeting with his usual good humor and charm. " Okay, this is how it’s got to be!” are Charles Kenerley’s words as he tells members of the council about his next money-making project. 88 Members of the Student Council are, FRONT ROW: Teer, Young, Murphree, Bates, Coffee. SECOND ROW: Bodenheimer, Means, S. Price, Dove, Kener- ley, P. Cranford. THIRD ROW: Ward, Czarnecki, Burwell, Allen, T. Price, Kanoy. FOURTH ROW: Clodfelter, Noblitt, Gilliam, Crowder, Adams, Floyd, Dorety. Characterize the TSHS Student Council To promote better relations between our high school and that of Lexing¬ ton, Alan Jordan, council president, accepted Preston’s invitation to speak to our student body. His moral support, Steve Rainey, seems to think his buddy is rather amusing. A dance at the cafeteria sponsored by the council completes the exciting night of Bulldog Homecoming. Judy Teer, Ronnie Crowder, Charles Kenerley, and Terri Price decorate The council sponsored a get-acquaint- TSHS Christmas tree. ed tea for the faculty in August. Members Ronnie Crowder, Charles Kenerley, and Marian Dove pack gifts for the Love Fund, a Christmas project of the TSHS student body. 89 National Honor Society Perpetuates Members of the National Honor Society are, FRONT ROW: Fesperman, Bumworth, Kenerley, Black, Dickens. SECOND ROW: Dove, Hill, Spainhour, Price, Fansler, Culler. THIRD ROW: Tew, P. Cranford, C. Cranford, Clodfelter, Sisk, Allen, Floyd. FOURTH ROW: Collett, Poppe, Chandler, Crowder, Gibbs, Payne, Dan, Jarrell, Bowers. Character, leadership, scholar¬ ship, and service are the standards by which eligible members of the Senior class are judged prior to the tapping ceremony of the Charles M. Lambeth Chapter of the National Honor Society. Each year the “Torch of Knowledge” is passed to a new group of students. It is the duty of the N.H.S. members to per¬ petuate the fine tradition establish¬ ed in past years. Being a member of this society is a coveted honor among TSHS stu¬ dents “on the go”, and the tapping ceremonies are moments of impres¬ sive beauty and suspense. But when students are singled out for the honor of membership, they don’t rest on their laurels. Hard work characterizes this organization as it carries out its obligation to the stu¬ dent body through the student di¬ rectory and tutoring service. The moment of truth arrives as Sandy Bum- worth climaxes a time of suspense for Patsy Floyd by tapping her into the N.H.S. Upholding the characteristics of N.H.S. are the officers: Danny Clodfelter, President; Charles Kenerley, Vice President; Susan Allen, Historian; Marcelline Spainhour, Chaplain; Clavie Cranford, Treasurer; and Amelia Sisk, Secretary (seated). 90 Fine Tradition by Hard Work Hard-working members of N.H.S. got together at a member’s home to as¬ semble the student directory. Here James Chandler, Jeanne Fesperman, Sandy Burnworth, and Brenda Hill laugh over the confusion created by the “assembly line” method. An interesting and important business meeting captures and holds the at¬ tention of the NHS members. Talent is no rarity at TSHS as Mike Styers proves with his outstanding ability in art. Here Mike is drawing the cover for the National Honor So¬ ciety student directory. To start an effective year for the NHS, the advisor, Mrs. Burrus, and the president, Danny Clodfelter, find interesting achievements of past years in the filing cabinet. One of many contributions made by NHS members to our student body is the tutoring service. Members take time out of busy schedules to help as David Gibbs demonstrates by making algebra simple for Jack Wilcox and Buddy Owen. r A vital part of TSHS on the go is the sports program. Credit for recording the many sports of the Bulldogs goes to Sports Editors Carroll Rickard. Tom Myers, and Jeff Hege. The ’68 GROWLER Staff Meets The labors of the GROWLER staff bring joy to the students of TSHS. Everyone anxiously awaits that day when the GROWLER ar¬ rives in the spring. Editor, Julia Burwell, and busi¬ ness manager, Susan Cushwa, give encouragement to staff efforts to produce a bigger and better GROWLER. The staff raises money for the publication of the annual by selling advertisements to local businesses. This proves to be hard work but al¬ so good experience in the business world. This year is a first in many ways. It is the first year of having an as¬ sistant editor, Celia Hooper, and as¬ sistant business manager, Teresa Rimer, and sophomore helpers. It is the first year that classes have placed advertisements in the annual. But first, last, and unchanging is a desire to serve the TSHS students with the best annual ever. The haid-working GROWLER staff takes time out for play with a real “growler.” Ellen Spoolman, Senior class editor; and Karen Pittman and Joyce Young, Underclass editors, be¬ came familiar with these carbon sheets in performing their duties as class editors. Without the calm efficiency and cheerful atti¬ tude of the advisor, Mrs. Cameron, the ’68 GROWLER would have never made it to press. Every page of the annual gives evidence of Mike Stuers’ artistic talents. Section editors, Susan Allen, Brenda Hill, Vicki Whitaker, Amelia Sisk, and Polly Collett, work together for the unity of the GROWLER. 92 the Challenge of A ccurately Recording a From the first organizational meeting in August until the GROWLER goes to press, mem¬ bers keep up a driving pace moti¬ vated by a high objective—the final production of an annual that will capture an accurate, memor¬ able picture of a year at TSHS. With the attainment of this goal, the staff will have presented to the student body a ’68 GROWLER to be cherished by every proud TSHS student on the go for many years to come. Year at TSHS Patience is the word for Mr. Renfro as he tells Mike Styers to “watch the birdie” while he takes individual pictures. Julia Burwell, editor, and Celia Hooper, assistant editor, are the two girls who were capable of handling the mammoth task of supervising the com¬ piling of the ’68 GROWLER. Business manager, Susan Cushwa, and her assistant, Teresa Rimer, face the unenviable task of balancing the books and keeping up with the finan¬ cial aspect of producing the ’68 GROWLER. Members of the GROWLER staff are, FRONT ROW: Robbins, Cushwa, Whitaker, Spoolman. SECOND ROW: Young, Fansler, Ott, Hill, Murphree. THIRD ROW: Leonard, Hooper, Rickard, Pittman, Burwell, Sisk. FOURTH ROW: Allen, Styers, Myers, Hege, Collett, Rimer. 93 I I i Members of FACTS AND FUN Staff are, FRONT ROW: Helms, Spainhour, Dickens, Baker, Fritts, Burnworth, Kirk. SECOND ROW: Mrs. Haney (ad¬ visor), Nl. Spainhour, Jarrell. Lambeth, Coffee, Ott. Williams. THIRD ROW: Warren, Ingram, Myers, Kindley, Floyd, Christman. Threadgill. FOURTH ROW: Hundley, Wilcox, Tucker, Saunders, Parrish, Payne, Nesbit, Petty. Facts and Fun Staff Strives for On-the-Spot Coverage One asset to the fine FACTS AND FUN Staff is the assistance of Mrs. Haney, advisor to the group shown here helping Kathy Kirk. On-the-spot coverage of both the ordinary and extraordinary at TSHS is the job of the FACTS AND FUN Staff. Editor, Debby Coffee, and as¬ sistant editor, Sharon Fritts, work with a cooperative staff to put out one of the finest newspapers any school could publish. The staffs motto is “Your action becomes our news,” which means that the life of TSHS is relfected in our newspaper. In the spring, the FACTS AND FUN staff creates a little action of its own by sponsoring Twirp Season, a week of vengeance for TSHS boys climaxed by the Sadie Hawkins Dance where Mr. and Miss Dog- patch-TSHS are chosen. Future re¬ porters, photographers, cartoonists, and writers may well be expected to come out of this group due to the excellent experience of striving for the best possible news coverage. Eager sophomore girls are ready to be off and running for the annual Sadie Hawkins event. There’s nothing like practice to keep one in top “Seek and find,” commands Debby as these hard-working staff members, Carolyn Kindley, Patsy running form! " Floyd, and Constance Baker, look for interesting ideas and set ups for FACTS AND FUN. 94 Debby Coffee, editor of the school newspaper, plans the layout and works long hours on each issue of FACTS AND FUN. The success of the FACTS AND FUN rests par¬ tially in the hands of assistant editor, Sharon Fritts, and business manager, D. D. Ott. of Events at TSHS—a Formidable Task Extensive reading and diligence will be rewarded lor editor, Robert Ad¬ ams, when he compiles the literary magazine, CHALENJ. Worthy mention must be given to ad¬ visor, Mrs. Haney. Being an English and journalis m teacher, she is well-versed in what makes a good paper, and she guides the staff toward this achievement. Good is not enough for TSHS because only the best will do, and FACTS AND FUN staff is the best, the best possible newspaper staff a high school can produce. One important aspect of newspaper writing is commun¬ ication with other schools for new ideas. Steve Parrish is exchange editor for FACTS AND FUN. Members of the CHALENJ staff are, FRONT ROW: Conrad, Christman, Johnson, Spain- hour. SECOND ROW: Williams, Tysinger, Hill, Smith. THIRD ROW: Pittman, Capel, Ball, Hedrick, Wall. FOURTH ROW: Jasperse, Tew, Adams, Stilwell, Hege, Madison. “Gentle persuasion” is D. D. Ott’s motto as she convinces the reluctant Tom Myers that he really wants to buy a FACTS AND FUN subscription. The Photography Habit Comes to TSHS Members of the Photographers’ Club are, FRONT ROW: McDonald, S. Smith, Carter. SECOND ROW: Mr. Mullen (advisor), Slack, R. Smith. THIRD ROW: B. Hill, Batten, Petty, Taylor, J. Hill. FOURTH ROW: Clark, Burkhart, Honeycutt, Sechrist, Jackson. The click of the shutter and pop of a flash bulb are the sounds that fascinate this segment of the TSHS student body. Interest in photo¬ graphy not only can stimulate an interesting hobby but can lead to a worthwhile and challenging career. This is the first year for this special interest group, and they got off to a very good start under the direction of advisor, Mr. Mullen. Meeting every two weeks, these students compare notes on photo¬ graphy and share interesting photo¬ graphs and “trade secrets” with each other. To a layman the terminology used in these club meetings would be baffling, but to the up-and-com- ing photography experts they be¬ came everyday words. This is what the Photography Club accom¬ plished in its first year at TSHS. Each year will see it becoming an important segment of TSHS on the go. Absorbed in the study of new cameras are the Photographers’ Club officers Tim Batten, President; Jimmy Petty, Vice Presi¬ dent; Jim Hill, Secretary; and Danny McDonald, Treasurer. Hey! What’s going on in the back io distract the Photographers’ Club so completely? Did someone drop his camera? 96 Shown holding the emblem of their organization are Tri-Hi-Y officers Carol Mur- phree, Treasurer; Jeanne Fesperman, Chaplain; Marcelline Spainhour, Secretary; Amelia Sisk, President; and Polly Collett, Vice President Tri-Hi-Y members must learn to be expert in applying make-up. Mrs. Fesperman, a local beautician, demonstrates on advisor, Mrs. Regan. Tri-Hi-Y Strives to Maintain Standards of Excellence “To create, maintain, and extend throughout the home, school, and community high standards of Christian character” is the motto of Tri-Hi-Y. This is one of the finest groups of girls one could ever hope to find. Consisting of some 150 TSHS girls, the Tri-Hi-Y strives to uphold its motto and does so, giving merit to the school. Presenting in¬ teresting and informative programs is one goal of Tri-Hi-Y. A handbell choir, a chalk-talk, and a panel of boys are just a few examples. In February Tri-Hi-Y sponsors a Sweet¬ heart Dance. Due to the large en¬ rollment, there are two Tri-Hi-Y’s at TSHS: a Junior and Senior Tri- Hi-Y, and a separate organization for sophomores. Both are equally important to the life at TSHS and keep it on the go. Sophomore officers, Susan Price, Vice President; Miriam Bowman, President; Jean Regan, Secre¬ tary; and Libby Britt, Treasurer, helped make the Thanksgiving project a success. Susan Allen would like to see the Sweetheart dance be a great success; so, she’s doing her part by cutting out valentines. 97 Members of the Debate Club are, FRONT ROW: Shaver, Pugh, Brinkley, Warner, Jennings, Foster, Sykes. SECOND ROW: Mrs. Allmond (advisor), In¬ gram. Kenerley, Hill. Ashmore, Thomas, Hooper, Clodfelter, Capel. THIRD ROW: B. Hill, Lee, Czarnecki, Allen, Hall, Rimer, Leonard, Price, Means, Dorety. FOURTH ROW: Webber, W. Hill, Wall, Adams, C. Gilliam, Poppe, J. Gilliam, Stilwell, Floyd, Johnson, Tew. Debaters Organize as a Club and What should the crime policy of the U.S. be? No, this is not a ques¬ tion being directed to law students. This is the question that confronted eager sophomore, wary junior, and confident senior debaters this year. As always, the task at first seemed insurmountable. The information was so over-whelming the students nearly despaired of ever debating with any degree of security. But security comes from familiarity, and through hard work these students did familiarize themselves with the topic. The result was another super¬ ior season under the direction of Coach (Mrs.) Allmond. This year far more active as a club than ever before, the Debate Club had interesting programs, join¬ ed the Forensic League, received and accepted an invitation from Chapel Hill to send two debaters to give a demonstration debate in Jan¬ uary, attended the Wake Forest Speech Festival in March, and suc¬ cessfully collected funds to send the squad to Athens for the highlight of the debate season, A Forensic Tournament. Don’t believe it! Susan’s just trying to convince the sixth period seniors that they should take her along when they go to Athens. “And you, Tom Dorety, will be first negative speaker whether you like it or not!” are chair¬ man, Mike Stilweil’s stem words. 98 Eager debaters Cathy Hall, Hugh Johnson, Mike Stilwell, and Jan Thomas are going to Wake Forest Speech Festival. Brenda Hill is obviously thinking of all that money that will pass through her hands as Debate Club Treasurer. Susan Allen, Secretary; Charles Kenerley, Vice President; and Danny Clodfelter, Pres¬ ident are unaware of her plans as they admire past awards. Tackle the Crime Policy of the United States Robert Adams would have Charles Gilliam believe that the study of Trigonometry is quite dra¬ matic. Through a humorous presentation of the various aspects of debating, senior members soli¬ cited members on club day before the whole student body. RESOLVED: THAT CONGRESS SHOULD ESTABLISH UNIFORM REGULATIONS TO CONTROL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION PROCEDURES. Danny’s statement to Mrs. Allmond sounds like this: “Gosh, you mean it costs that much to go to Athens?!” 99 One ofTSHS’s Largest Clubs, LeCercle Francois, Takes on a Project—Penpals in Foreign Countries The study of a foreign language is often difficult and tedious; many students fail to see the importance or value of speaking and under¬ standing a foreign language. This year many sophomores, juniors, and seniors discovered the beauty of French through the French Club; so many, in fact, that the club had to be divided into a Junior-Senior Club and a Sophomore Club with differ¬ ent officers. One of the main purposes of a French Club would be to under¬ stand the people who speak French as their native tongue, and this is what they set out to accomplish this year. One of the most fascin¬ ating hobbies is having a penpal, and the French Club began that project this year in an effort to live up to their purpose as a language club. Members of the Junior-Senior French Club are, FRONT ROW: Hill, Harris, S. Spainhour, Conrad, Hiatt, Coffee, Foster, Fritts, Dove, Wilhite, Freeman, Cole, Bumworth, Floyd, Smith. SECOND ROW: M. Spainhour, Hanes, Spoolman, McLain, L. Ott, Young, D. Ott, Price, Burwell, Sisk, Carter, Bates, Anderson, Bodenheimer, Terry, Craven.

President Bob Hinkle wants to make sure we notice the bullfight as Jeanne Fesperman, Pro¬ gram Co-chairman; Celia Hooper, Treasurer; Brenda Hill, Program Co-chairman; and Debby Sykes, Vice President look on. Spanish Club Programs Sparkle as Eager Members Favor Vacationing in Spain and Holding Real Bull Fights! Under the direction of Mrs. Dolle, the Spanish Club strives to further the appreciation of this foreign lan¬ guage at TSHS. During club meet¬ ings, students enjoy the fellowship of Spanish-speaking comrades. The club often invites guests who have made visits to Spanish-speaking countries. These guests show slides of their trips, present new and in¬ teresting information about the countries, and answer the questions asked by interested TSHS students. This is not only educational but al¬ so enjoyable. This year, due to the large number of students taking Spanish, the club has been divided into two parts: Sophomore Spanish Club and Jr.-Sr. Spanish Club. Both groups strive to make their club an honor to the ideal of being “on the go” at TSHS. Bob has just asked everyone in favor of speaking Spanish at all club meetings to raise his hand. Notice the response? Robert Sink, club member, is teaching advisor, Mrs. Dolle how to operate a tape recorder. CDE, Still Expanding, Provides Experience for Future Members of DECA are, FRONT ROW: C.

These students are really “on the go” as they attend regular classes for half of the school day and then le ave our campus to spend the rest of the day in on-the-job training with local business firms. Super¬ markets, jewel shops, and clothing stores are just a few of the various businesses opening their doors to give these high school students train¬ ing for future careers. This program is an invaluable as¬ set for the students who are career- bound following graduation. For many years, our curriculum catered to the college-bound students, which is obviously unfair. Now, par¬ tially through DECA, our programs have followed the progressive trend toward education for the future. President Chris Ball holds the attention of the members as they discuss plans for future projects and social plans. 102 The Vocational Industrial Clubs of America is a national organiza¬ tion of youth enrolled in secondary vocational industrial education. This includes students in trade, indus¬ trial, or technical education courses that are vocationally and occupa¬ tionally oriented. VICA is the only national organization whose purpose is to serve vocational youth. Mr. Everhart serves as advisor of this group, and his enthusiasm is catching. Students are becoming interested. In VICA’s first year at TSHS, the membership was fifteen. Each year will see this group grow and become an increasingly impor¬ tant segment of TSHS’s “on the go” student body. Members of VICA are, FRONT ROW: Sumner, Mack, Jeffares. SECOND ROW: Freeman, Maxwell, Myers, Mr. Everhart (advisor). THIRD ROW: Stephens, Price, Goins, Hunt. FOURTH ROW: Rus¬ sell, Hamilton, Haltom, Younts, Clinard. VICA Interests Many Students in its First Year at TSHS VICA members work for community businesses who co-operate in this educational endeavor. Here Terry Haltom performs one of his common tasks at Rex Plastics Co. Mike Clinard, President; Jim Price, Vice President; Larry Sumner, Treasurer; and Danny Myers, Secretary are in the “line-up” as offi¬ cers of VICA. 103 F. H.A. Teaches Appreciation of Household A rts Members of F.H.A. are, FRONT ROW: Gilmore, Cash, Braddock, Holmes, Johnson, Todd, York. SECOND ROW: Teer, Kanoy, Miss Buie (advisor). Watts, Jackson, Hughes, P. Hughes, Musser. THIRD ROW: Jerman, Mayes, Brown, Cox, Reardon, Russell, Jarrett, Hubbard, J. Watts, Jackson. FOURTH ROW: Jackson, Bowers, Younts, Gantt, Segers, Baker, Burwell, Deal, Shell, Shuler. Miss Buie is advisor to one of the most interesting clubs for girls at TSHS. This club is the Future Homemakers of America, and through it the interested girls at TSHS learn the art of being a home¬ maker. There is more to cooking, sewing, and caring for a family than meets the eye. All members of FHA learn to appreciate the skills in¬ volved in these household respon¬ sibilities and the most modern and efficient methods of doing them. Experience is what counts in doing one’s best at any task, and these girls receive the most in homemak¬ ing experience through FHA. The highlight of the year’s activities is the Fashion Show. Miss Buie is helping Debbie Darr get her seams straight for the big show. For TSHS girls on the go, mastery of the art of ironing is a blessing as Gaye Southern demon¬ strates here. Officers are, Delores Baker, Vice President; Julia Bowers, Treasurer; Judy Younts, President; Judy Teer, Secretary; and Julia Burwell, Historian. Whether repairing the old ones or making new ones, Delores Baker is a whiz at the sewing machine thanks to the training she receives in home economics and FHA. FTA officers are: Tammy Hedrick, Treasurer; Sharon Everhart, Secretary; Nancy Dickens, Vice President; and Beverly Harris, President. Members of F.T.A. are, FRONT ROW: Kirk, Connolly. SECOND ROW: Dickens, Mrs. Dor- sett, (advisor). THIRD ROW: Hedrick, Harris. FOURTH ROW: Clark, Everhart, Scoggins, Webber. Think of Having That Cute Little Girl for a Trigonometry Teacher!! Within this organization are the future teachers of America. These s tudents have been so impressed by the faculty of TSHS that they wish to learn more about teaching and perhaps become teachers in later years. They receive excellent exper¬ ience by helping the teachers grade papers, by having interesting pro¬ grams which apply to teaching, and mainly by following the fine exam¬ ples set before them. Striving to learn more about the teaching pro¬ fession is truly a worthwhile cause for an organization, and these stu¬ dents take full advantage of every method for learning how they can become better teachers. Despite the hard work required in learning the skills of the profession, the future teachers take time out from their project of serving as teachers’ aids to have fun as a group. Miss Williams enjoys an “apple for the teacher”, Beverly Harris and Nancy Dickens get practice for the future in performing that most common of one of F.T.A.’s projects. all teaching tasks, grading papers. 105 F.

Secretary; Sherry Ballard, Vice President; and Jeannie Helms, President. (Marilyn Caulder, Treasurer, not present when picture was made.) Janice Skeen puts the finishing touches on a bulletin board depict¬ ing the good secretary. On club day members. Sherry Ballard, Nell Myers, and Martha Sue Long, went before the student body to solicit members. In a program on the “proper and improper sec¬ retary” Charlene Donovan and Janice Skeen dressed and acted to fit the parts. The rapid click of the typewriter and the swift motion of shorthand across a dictation pad are the sym¬ bols of this organization for the fu¬ ture. Future Secretaries prepares in¬ terested students for an important and successful career—that of a secretary. It is in this type of club that special interest in secretarial work is developed. Through visits to local businesses, special programs on do’s and don’t’s for secretaries, and study projects, future secretaries learn to perform the efficient, important duties that will be theirs in office work. Members of F.S.A. are, FRONT ROW: Robbins, Helms, Lohr, Cushwa, Owen. SECOND ROW: Ballard, Bean, Myers, Ward, Walker, Mrs. Martin (advisor). THIRD ROW: Skeen, Davidson, Gath- ings, Haywood, Farabee, McKinney. FOURTH ROW: Caulder, Beck, Darr, Long, Warren, Moser, Lanier. 106 Members of the Library Club are, FRONT ROW: Caylor, Walker, D. Hulon, Johnson, Shuler, Wel- borne. SECOND ROW: Mrs. Hughes (advisor), S. Smith, Blake, Worthy, Helms, Holmes, J. Hulon, Cole.

Learning to use the card catalogue is a vital part of putting the library to good use. Jackie Hulon looks on as Debbie Cole demonstrates. Library Club is “In the Know” About TSHS Library Friendliness and willingness to help characterize the advisor, Mrs. Hughes. Assisted by Jackie Hulon and Brenda Foster, Mrs. Hughes outlines the activities of library convention weekend. Service is the word for the Li¬ brary Club, a group partially respon¬ sible for keeping TSHS on the go. When faced with that research pa¬ per on history report, on the go stu¬ dents are stopped cold until they turn to the group of students who are really “in the know”. Trained by our librarian, Mrs. Hughes, these thirty-one students have at their fingertips the information so vital to that A+ all students would like to have. Possessing the knowledge and glad to be of service, these club members forego their study halls to be of help in the library. A fitting reward for these services rendered is the annual convention trip, the highlight of the Library Club year. Here club members learn how to better serve the students of TSHS on the go. Library Club officers: Melvin Horne, Vice-President; Bonnie Allison, Treasurer; Linda Thompson, President; and Bonnie Overby, Secretary plan for a good year of activities. 107 New Buildings Require Attention of School Board 4 I The chairman of ThomasviUe’s school board, James Dorety, shows an active interest in our school system. By keeping up with the latest trends in education he has done much to im¬ prove Thomasville’s city schools. The Thomasville City School Board, which is the backbone of our school system, works conscientious¬ ly and diligently to maintain a smooth running system. Each mem¬ ber has worked with dedication and efficiency. We realize the worth¬ while services and benefits that have been given to Thomasville Senior High School by them. The School Board truly helps to make Thomasville a better place in which to live by providing for a sys¬ tem which meets the needs of each individual student. Their concern for the future helps greatly in mak¬ ing our school system a better tool of education. They are doing an ex¬ cellent job of providing the Thomas¬ ville City Schools with efficient teachers and an excellent curricu¬ lum. The faith in education and the good judgement and uprightness of character of each member is greatly appreciated by the students and par¬ ents, as well as by the entire com¬ munity. The members of the School Board are now busy planning many projects which deal directly with the Thomasville City School Sys¬ tem. The largest project, however, about which they are concerned is the construction of new buildings at Thomasville Senior High School, as well as the improvement of roads and parking areas. The complete beautification of Thomasville Senior High School has become a major concern of all. The members of the School Board are, SEATED: Mrs. Meredith Finch. STANDING: Dr. W. T. Bird, Aldeen Robbins, James Dorety, Chairman, Bob Powell. 110 Mrs. Joyce Gordon, Miss Katie Shuler, and Mrs. Elaine Hemphill stay busy keeping things going smoothly for Dr. Bird. Dr. Bird proves by his actions his desire to make our schools the best in the state. The Responsibilities of Dr. Bird Are Many Dr. W. T. Bird, our superinten¬ dent, is definitely a man of many responsibilities. Thomasville Senior High School, as well as other schools in the Thomasville City School Sys¬ tem, is extremely fortunate to have his guidance and leadership. Dr. Bird’s interest in the needs of our school has been proven many times. He not only directs the stu¬ dents and teachers in their school activities, but he is a personal friend who guides them on their upward way. Although burdened with the many responsibilities of keeping the schools running efficiently, he seems to find time to take a personal in¬ terest in all phases of our lives. Stu¬ dents at Thomasville Senior High are very indebted to Dr. Bird for the work he has done and for the work he is continuing to do. His contri¬ bution to the education of each in¬ dividual student will never be for¬ gotten. Assisting Dr. Bird in carrying out his many duties and responsibilities are several able office workers. Miss Jewel Sink, office manager and treasurer; Mrs. Joyce Gordon, secre¬ tary; and Mrs. Elaine Hemphill, stenographer, work diligently as they contribute to the efficient run¬ ning of the school system. No school system is simple. Quali¬ fied workers are required to keep it it from becoming disorderly and complicated. In any type of system, people must work together to keep things running smoothly. This is ex¬ actly what these office managers do. They are always willing to work for the improvement of our school sys¬ tem, and each of them is indispen¬ sable to the operation of the schools. The summer school project of 1967 afforded a program of math and cultural enrichment, in¬ novative in the state and especially in this area. Shown below are Miss Jewell Sink, ESEA Di¬ rector in Thomasville; Mr. Robert Bowen, Audio-Visual Co-ordinator; and Mrs. Suzanne Day, Secretary. Ill Being secretary of ThomasviUe Senior High is Office staff members are, Maureen Schneider, Martha Culler, Jeanne Fesperman, Linda Bowers, not an easy job. Our secretary, Mrs. Jane Pam Ashemore, Diana Bobo, Greta Day, Jackie Wilson, Kathy Hall, Judy Teer. Osborne, displays her cheerfulness to everyone she meets. Mr. Miles Stresses High Ideals for TSHS Students The golden doors of opportunities are opened each day in the field of academics to the students of Thomas- ville Senior High School. Mr. Miles heads this drive with the co-operation of an outstanding faculty. There have been many improvements brought about at our school in the past three years by Mr. Miles. He is continually looking ahead to find ways to meet the needs and prob¬ lems of Senior High. He is genuinely interested in every student at Senior High and he has strived to produce a curriculum which meets the needs of college-bound stu¬ dents seeking commercial and vocational educations. Mr. Miles is a man with ideas . . . the ability to com¬ municate them . . . the power to inspire ... a willing¬ ness to listen . . . and a dedication to serve. Through the guidance and interest of Mr. Miles, ThomasviUe Senior High School has become a school that not only her students are proud of, but also all the citizens of ThomasviUe. Mr. Miles is a friend to all students at Senior High. His concern for our school and its students has caused TSHS to become a better place to study and learn. 112 P.T.A. Projects Seek to Serve a Growing School Mr. Miles and the P.T.A. officers work together to make our school a better one. P.T.A. officers are: Mrs. Jerald Jasperse, President; Mr. L. E. Abbott, treasurer; Mrs. Marshall Stillwell, Secretary: Mr. Tom Allen, Vice-President. Our P.T.A. President Mrs. Jerald Jasperse strived hard this year to present programs of interest to both students and parents. The goal of the Thomasville High High School Parent Teacher Associa¬ tion is to create a closer relationship between home and school. The P.T.A. also wants a better under¬ standing between parents and teach¬ ers. The first program of the year on October 19th with a panel compos¬ ed of parents, teachers, and students discussing grading, promoted this understanding. The October meet¬ ing, “P.T.A. Studies the School Board” gave further insight as School Board Chairman James Dor- ety and Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Bird, explained their duties and responsibilities. At the March meet¬ ing the P.T.A. had an open house of the new classrooms. A fashion show was planned for the April meeting. The P.T.A. has been paying for the student phone for several years and this year has added a private phone for the guidance office. At a P.T.A. meeting parents, teachers, and students discussed grading. Those participating were Delores Baker, Susan Allen, Mrs. Robert Martin, Mrs. Charles Fulp, Mr. Miles, Mrs. Hubert Coffee, Mrs. Wilson Hunt, Mr. Ken Huffman, and Gomer Powell. Mr. Hilton plays a double role at P.T.A. meet¬ ings as both teacher and parent. 113 History—A Study in Which MRS. MULLEN “Not that excuse again.” MR.

Through studies of the past, man can better understand himself and his country. Social Studies is inval¬ uable in that it gives students an in¬ sight into governmental workings, a pride in their national heritage, and an inspiration for furthering of their knowledge of past and societies. In¬ cluded in TSHS curriculum are cour¬ ses in American and World History, economics and sociology and demo¬ cracy in action. World History stud¬ ies man from the beginning of time and stresses major trends of Western Civilization. U.S. history probes deep into the history of our own country and enriches upon what we were taught in the earlier grades. Sociology and Economics helps stu¬ dents become aware of problems in our society and economy. Demo¬ cracy in Action deals with the big¬ gest threat in today’s world-that of communism. 114 of the World We Live MRS. MORRISON “Only 15 more seconds.. Senior debator Charles Gilliam comforts sopho¬ more debator Randy Shaver in the problems he encounters in first year debate. Democracy in Action students learn the techni¬ ques and methods of “brainwashing” which can be a valuable asset in the future. Sociology and Economics stimulates students in awareness of the social and economic condi¬ tions of the world in which they live. Projects such as the building of this computer help the study of world history come alive for sophomores. 115 Theirs is the Business of Teaching MRS. MYERS Mrs. Myers gives her sophomores individual attention. Vocabulary books are the crabgrass in the lawn of life. MRS. HELVEY Keep your cool, Mrs. Helvey. Your fifth period seniors will let you back in your room. MRS. HANEY “Cleanliness is next to Godliness,” points out Mrs. Haney. MRS. CAMERON Steve Kanoy rolls on the floor laughing at one of Mrs. Cameron’s sly jokes. MRS. BURRUS “Now students please get your footnotes right,” pleads Mrs. Burrus. 116 And my interpretation of the book, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. While acting out plays in English, students sometimes get out of control. Students often fall asleep while reading “interesting” library books. Pleasant dreams, Mike? The English department is the hub of the curriculum. Through it, the students strive to learn basic skills and to establish the fundamen¬ tals of good English. By studying literature, students establish con¬ tact with the world of material that is to be read, studied, and enjoyed. They are able to gain an insight and understanding of the world about them. Realizing that it is impossible to “learn it all” does not prevent TSHS students from learning what they can. For the sophomores, “Julius Caesar” is probably the largest area of study. For the juniors, there is the first term paper, an event to be remembered for a long time. For seniors, there is the review of past English and the study of “Macbeth.” 117 The prime objective of any for¬ eign language being communication, French and Spanish students strive diligently to speak the languages and to obtain an accent similar to those on the A-L-M tapes. This requires much practice, and practice is ex¬ actly what students get during these classes. Modern foreign language also seeks to include cultural knowledge and appreciation. Students are able to learn from the past while becom¬ MISS WILLIAMS “Miss Williams, are you sure you have on a “Okay, who copied someone’s Spanish home- French tape?” work and turned it in for French?” Frangais, Espanol Make Up Now do you know what the word “lapin” means? ing better citizens of the world to¬ day.

Chemistry stu¬ dents learn how to conduct experi¬ ments and write lab reports. Physics students examine the laws of mo¬ tion. These are all activities within the science department at Thomas- ville Senior High School. The study of science answers many questions and also raises many questions. The study of science is important in to¬ day’s rapidly progressing society. Four science courses are offered at TSHS. They are biology, advanced biology, chemistry, and physics. In sophomore biology, students study plant and animal life. Their study is aided by the use of micro¬ scopes and dissecting kits. Advanced biology is offered to students ser¬ iously interested in this field of science. Most juniors find their way into chemistry. These students are eager to begin mixing chemicals and taking notice of the changes which take place in their composition. Physics is another course offered to students who wish to further their knowledge in a specific area of science. The science courses taught at TSHS are stepping stones to science courses offered in college. Chemistry students Lea Abbott, Mike Bryant, and Suzanne Carlton painstakingly work to complete an experiment testing for the presence of oxygen. Is Ricky being sworn in or is this a physics experiment? Easy Rocky! You’re not in South Africa blow¬ ing darts at the Pigmies. This is chemistry, re¬ member?

Problem to Many Given (1) Mr. Day, Mrs. Fulp, and Mr. Hilton (2) Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Algebra, General Math, and Business Math (3) 406 students Prove: TSHS has a great math department. Mathematics is a necessary and vital part of the complete education of Thomasville Senior High School students. Students of TSHS are for¬ tunate to be able to participate in a well-developed program of mathe¬ matics. TSHS curriculum includes geometry, trigonometry, calculus, algebra, general math, and business math. General math students work hard at perfecting basic mathematic skills. A change in the math pro¬ gram has resulted in geometry being offered to both sophomores and juniors. In geometry, students first solve problems dealing with plane figures, and then they move on to solid figures. Geometry trains stu¬ dents to reason and think clearly. Trigonometry and calculus courses are offered to students interested in furthering their knowledge of math¬ ematics. This is the first year that calculus has been offered at TSHS. These two courses help students to think and reason for themselves through difficult and complicated problems. Mathematics becomes “A Family Affair” for Mr. Hilton and daughter Ann. When trig-cal. studen ts get stumped on a prob lem, they find other students are always willing to give assistance. “Do I know how to graph what?’ 123 Through C.D.E. Students Seek Training for the Future MR. MULLEN “ . . . I know it’s in here somewhere . . Cooperative Distributive Educa¬ tion is in its second year at Thomas- ville Senior High School. This course proved to be very successful last year. Students engaged in this program spend three periods in the mornings taking required subjects. Fourth period is spent in distribu¬ tive education class. After lunch, students go to their training jobs. This program is very beneficial to students interested in entering a vo¬ cation upon graduation. Industrial Cooperative Training is a joint effort of schools and em¬ ployers in business and industry to provide on-the-job training for high school seniors and juniors in occu¬ pational areas of their choice. It provides supervised occupational ex¬ periences enabling student-learners to acquire skills and to gain under¬ standing of their chosen careers. Employers furnish on-the-job train¬ ing to students under actual work¬ ing conditions. The school furnishes a qualified co-ordinator to perform consultative services for employers and to correlate the technical related information in school with the stu¬ dent-learner’s on-the-job training. Mr. Everhart answers the questions which arise during l.C.T.’s first year at TSHS. Sherry Ballard, a member of the Distributive Education Class, gains experience working through her job at the Jewel Shop. MR. EVERHART “You’ll think goof off!” 124 “No, Mrs. Hughes! The book, not my hand!” MRS. HUGHES Mrs. Hughes seeks information for a student from the card catalog. Journalism Students Learn to Convey Their Thoughts Effectively Mrs. Haney and Debby Coffee spend many hours working hard to produce our school’s newspaper. Journalism students assist each other with crea¬ tive writing. This year, for the first time, there are two journalism classes—one for credit and one for non-credit. Both classes help in publishing the school newspaper, THE FACTS AND FUN. The papers are issued to the students each month with extra editions be¬ ing issued on special occasions. The journalism students spend much time preparing the paper. It is cer¬ tainly worth their time; however, for it is enjoyed by all students who read it. Working on the FACTS AND FUN, however, is not all the journ¬ alism students do. They are kept busy with creative writing and with studying the techniques of journ¬ alism. Mrs. Hughes, our librarian, is a great asset to our school. She assists the students in finding material for term papers, book reports, and for personal enjoyment as well. Her concern for the students has made her a friend to all those who seek her help. 125 Students Strive for Perfection in Business Education MRS. MARTIN 1 dare you to come in here again without any typewriting paper!” MRS. DORSETT “Didn ' t I just change this ribbon yesterday?” Ouch! I hurt my semicolon fin¬ ger! This is a likely statement to be made by a frustrated typing student. TSHS commercial courses are de¬ signed to meet the needs of busi¬ ness-minded students. The first few weeks in typing class can be very trying. After the keyboard has been mastered, students then begin work¬ ing on speed and accuracy. Daily practice is essential if this goal of speed and accuracy is to be reached. Other commercial courses offer¬ ed besides typing I and II are book¬ keeping, office practice, shorthand, and basic business. Perfecting skills taught in commercial classes enable students to qualify for future office occupations. The varied sounds of typewriter keys clicking, pencils “I know I do more erasing than typing.” MRS. REGAN “Oh come on, you can think of a better excuse than that.” scratching out shorthand, students borrowing typing paper and hunting for erasers, and adding machines clacking, all prove that commercial students are busy. Because of the usefulness of com¬ mercial subjects, many students work at least one commercial class into their schedules during their high school years. MISS BUIE . . and to make this cake nice and firm, I’ll add a cup of starch.” MR. GRAHAM “You know that’s not the assignment I gave you.” “After Corner does my mechanical drawing, who’s going to do my English?” Vocational Subjects Prove Beneficial to Many Practical experience is gained in shop classes through designing and building. Emphasis is placed on woodworking. Hours of work go in¬ to woodworking projects before they are completed. The finished products, which range from tables to gun racks, are something which shop boys take great pride in. The shop boys also use their skills to help the students by constructing braces and items necessary for decorating for the Junior Senior Prom. Shop training is very valuable to those students planning to enter work in local furniture factories up¬ on graduation. Would-be architects find mechan¬ ical drawing challenging and fascin¬ ating. Serious study now on archi¬ tectural techniques can result in a rewarding profession. Home economics class builds a foundation for future home life. Cooking, sewing, and housecleaning skills are all taught. To enable stu¬ dents to develop successful com¬ munity living, problems in relation¬ ships, management, home safety and improvement, food, clothing, and health are included in the course. You won’t be finding any rings around Miss Buie’s bathtub! MR. LITWIN TSHS’s “Music Man” cuts off the band with a familiar gesture. Taking band often requires more than musical skill. Sometimes band members act as their own repairmen. “Now do I go left or right?” TSHS Courses Build Students Consisting of 88 members, the band was, to say the least, kept busy during football season. The march¬ ing band presented halftime shows at each ballgame, and this hard work did not go unnoticed. With the close of football season, the band turned their thought to the concert season. Still, however they were busy, and there was sel¬ dom a relaxed moment. Under the direction of Miss Jeanne Montgomery, the chorus has provided much entertainment dur¬ ing the school year. The dedicated members of the chorus spend many hours practicing to reach perfection. Their singing is enjoyed by all. The annual Christmas program is one of the year’s high-lights. It brings the spirit of Christmas through song to our school. What’s the matter, Nancy? Can’t you take a little breeze? Baritones, tenors, and sopranos combine their voices and develop their talent by singing in quartets. 128 Is this Garden Club or boy’s P.E.? Culturally and Physically MR.

Her concern for the individ¬ ual student is recognized by all stu¬ dents who make visits to her office. Mrs. Jane Larabee, dietian pre¬ pares menus for the students in the school system. Among her duties are ordering the food and paying for it. This year, Mrs. Clarice Rains is serving as our new Supervisor of Education. Her job is to co-ordinate the art, spirit, and skills of our teachers, and to help promote a uni¬ fied purpose in education among them. And this college is perfectly located— —right near a boys’ school! Mrs. Schnopp’s Helpers are, SEATED: Ann Hilton and Debby Coffee; STANDING, left to right: Priscilla Dula, Mary Jerman, Debbie Walker, Sidney Ingram, Julia Bowers, Ann Johnson, and Yvonne Lohr.

If there is anything wrong at Senior High our janitor can fix it! Keeping TSHS beautiful is a project which re¬ quires the interest and co-operation of all stu¬ dents. TSHS Personnel Perform Their Tasks Most Efficiently Preparing a hot lunch each day for the student body is a big job, and our cooks deserve to be complimented for their fine work. 131 133 Displaying that old “Bulldog Spirit” was not a hard job for such a great group of girls as our TSHS cheerleaders. They are KNEELING: Chief, Terri Price. FIRST ROW: Betty Lou Thompson, Pam Perrish, mascot, Debby Sykes, Linda Clodfelter, Joyce Young. SECOND ROW: Kay Trantham, Kathy Warner, Susan Cagle, Jean Regan. Cheerleaders Promote the Outstanding Bulldog Spirit Spirit — it starts with nine viva¬ cious girls; it spreads rapidly to the entire student body — the result — a great school year! TSHS cheerleaders sponsor a var¬ iety of projects during the year to keep the spirit high, but the actual work for the cheerleaders begins in the summer with long hours of prac¬ tice. Early in the summer, TSHS cheer¬ leaders work toward perfecting fa¬ miliar cheers and learning new ones. They work endlessly making origi¬ nal posters and signs to deck the halls of TSHS before each game. Cheerleaders are also faced with the task of planning pep rallies, skits, and projects to boost the spirit in all phases of school life. It is certain that our cheerleaders exemplify the reputation that our student body has made because they are ON THE GO! Chief cheerleader, Terri Price, did an excellent job in boosting the spirit at TSHS to make it the greatest year ever! Our cheerleaders boost the spirit of both the Bulldog fans and the boys on the team as they show their enthusiasm during the game with Davie County. 134 TSHS cheerleaders are known far and wide for their pep and enthusiasm throughout the school year. Even during the long, tiring Christmas parade they never ceased to let onlookers know that “We’re From Thomasville, Couldn’t Be Prouder!” That Keeps Our Dogs on the Go £ 3 “Heads it’s Myrtle, tails it’s OD!” TSHS cheerleaders take a break after their long, tedious hours of planning pep rallies to decide where they are going after graduation.

Starting the practice season on August 8, a week earlier than last year, the boys made the new Brown Finch Physical Education Building their residence for the next two weeks. Arising at 6:30 A.M., Mon¬ day through Saturday, they ate breakfast after which three hours of rugged practice was manipulated. They were then dismissed for lunch but were required to return to the gym at 2:00 P.M. for a skull session. Next on the agenda came another practice session of two hours. Sup¬ per was the most welcomed meal, but not much time could be wasted. The boys had to return to the gym once again by 7:30, and be ready for bed by 8:00. Bulldogs sweat through the many hours of “light” practice which demonstrates the Bulldogs’ be¬ liefs of true dedication. Coach Cushwa reveals his plan of strategy to his Dogs during a quick breather. 139 Determination is depicted by senior halfback Danny Hill as he chums for a few val¬ uable yards. Junior ace halfback Ronnie Miller leads a tenacious adver¬ sary and streaks toward paydirt. Bulldogs Display Potent Offense Though it was a demanding and tiring schedule for the team to fol¬ low, it paved the way for a great football season at TSHS. Dedication - the “password” at TSHS. Coach George Cushwa is one of the persons mainly responsible for football’s great success at TSHS. Coming from Roxboro nine years ago, he has established a tradition of winning and pride that carries over from each team to their successors, fhe highly praised “defensive” unit of the TSHS Bulldogs results from the many hours Coach Wayne Shadrick has placed upon its prior¬ ity. Through his instructions, the Thomasville defensive unit has be¬ come well-known for its tough¬ nosed goal line stands. Responsible for turning out a championship line each year is Coach Larry Younts. A winning team must have a good line, and the fruits of Coach Younts’ labor can be seen in past winning seasons. Robert Sanders and David Stepp go Page Pirate hunting as senior fullback Bruce Mills digs to¬ ward a much-wanted treasurer — the winning touchdown. Gene Monroe flings a superb block for quar¬ terback David Gibbs on a very important fourth-down situation. Senio r guard Gary Hill paves the way for Eddie Williamson’s tremendous burst of speed in an important conference encounter. 140 Junior end Robert Sanders displays the strong aerial attack of the Bulldogs with one of his many circus catches. Running ace Eddie Williamson scores another touchdown against Kannapolis as the referee displays the prominent arch of victory. and Malicious Defense Coach David Day, also mainly junior varsity coach, has aided fu¬ ture varsity teams by instructing the younger boys about the main necessities in football. Because of these four men, who are truly dedicated to their jobs as coaches, all boys who have worked under them have developed strong standards of sportsmanship, and have learned the importance of working toward a goal. Everyone is visualizing the magnificent run¬ ning moves of TSHS pride - Eddie Williamson. “Bear” Leamon barrels for a couple of rugged yards against arch-rival Asheboro. Our Dogs take a pause after a hard-fought battle. 141 “Dedication ”—The Password of the Bulldogs With senior halfback Eddie Wil¬ liamson leading the team, the Bull¬ dogs opened the 1967 season on a victorious note. They squeezed by Kings Mountain 7 0 in a very hard fought skirmish. After an excellent performance against Kings Mountain, the Bull¬ dogs smashed the Page Pirates 8—6. This was a very strong defensive game. In the third game, after two con¬ secutive wins, the Bulldogs dropped to the Blue Comets of Asheboro 22 6. It was a close game for three quarters, but finally the Blue Com¬ ets overcame the Bulldogs. Perhaps one of the most impor¬ tant games of the year was when the Yellow Jackets of Lexington invaded the home of the Dogs. It was a hard-fought battle but finally the Jackets survived with a 27—6 pounding of the Dogs. As a result this game was decisive in determin¬ ing the Conference Championship. The Bulldogs gained revenge dis¬ playing the meaning of the word “determination ' ’ as they defeated the Statesville Greyhounds 7-6 for their third well-earned game of the year. Albemarle invaded T’ville the next week only to receive a 14—6 defeat. It was a perfect Friday night for the football game at Memorial Park as the high ranked Kannapolis Little Wonders invaded Bulldogland. In a game termed as one of Thomas- ville’s “greatest in history,” the Dogs literally slaughtered the Won¬ ders 21—3. After their eighth victory of the season, the thoroughly confident Bulldogs chewed up South Rowan 26- 0. In T-ville’s game with Con¬ cord, the Spiders handed them their final defeat of the season 6 0. However, the Bulldogs bounced back to climax a rugged season with a 6 0 win over Salisbury Boyden. Overall the Bulldogs had a tremen¬ dous 7 3 season with a third place tie with Kannapolis in the South Piedmont Conference. Congratula¬ tions, Dogs! We’re proud of you! Ronnie Miller “fights” his way through a staunch Kannapolis line which proved to be sufficient for a Bulldog victory, 21 - 3.

J. V. ’s Prepare for Their Future as Mighty Bulldogs TSHS junior varsity Bullpups, through countless hours of turmoil, exemplify themselves as true Bull¬ dogs. Although the J.V.’s did not have a particularly astonishing sea¬ son, their value to TSHS was more than exceeded by their contempor¬ aries - the Bulldogs. The J.V.’s played an important part in their role as Dog’s. The J.V.’s each week were faced with the opposing team’s offense and de¬ fense and would strangely maneuver it against the Varsity Dog’s. It re¬ quired great intestinal fortitude which gave the J.V.’s their start as true “Champions” in the eyes of the thankful student body. Next year the J.V.’s will display their knowledge gained through ex¬ periences which shall once again prove fortuous.

This year’s girls’ basketball team has worked hard and faithfully to bring exciting and rewarding games to the many spectators that so faith¬ fully support them. The team has shown pride for its school through good sportsmanship at all times and every game. All of the girls playing, whether they were returners or new mem¬ bers, worked solidly behind their new coach to produce a team TSHS could be proud of. It can truthfully be said that this team was an exper¬ ienced one. There were seven girls returning from last year’s squad, several of whom started on the team last year. Anxiously waiting for a rebound, Lady Bulldogs Sandy Williams and Yvonne Batten are ready to pounce on the ball at any minute. 144 All hands grab for the ball as Lady Bulldogs fight desperately for its possession. TSHS Bulldogettes fight furiously for a loose ball against two Davie County invaders. “Action-Packed” Season The girls practiced strenuously everyday to develop their skills in passing, dribbling, shooting, and guarding.

Through real team¬ work and sportsmanship they dis¬ played that true “Bulldog Spirit” that makes for a successful season. Girls’ basketball managers are Jackie Wilson and Brenda Allen.

The junior varsity team, compos¬ ed of sophomore and juniors, prac¬ ticed tirelessly to develop talents needed in basketball. These talents and the directions of Coach Larry Younts boosted the team to an ex¬ cellent season. The experience gained by these boys will prove to be very valuable to the varsity team next year. Fight¬ ing for rebounds and retrieving the Bullpups work hard to gain possession of the re¬ bound. loose balls proved the Bullpups de¬ termination each hard-fought bat¬ tle. Trying to not only win, but also to spread and display sports¬ manship was a prominent character¬ istic of the J.V.’s.

Senior Danny Hill demonstrates the winning form called for in the stiff competition of track meets. When winter comes to an end the boys of the TSHS track team begin to hustle about preparing for the oncoming meets. During track season the team heads for “Death Valley” to sweat out their after¬ noons in rugged practice in prepar¬ ation for coming conference en¬ counters. Wind sprints help Seniors Max Rollins, Gomer Powell, Roger Walser, and Randall Frisbee build strong endurance for spring competition. Eddie Williamson knows that practice not only makes perfect, but helps build speed in running the 100 yard dash. There are many events in track, each different and very exciting. The discus and shot putt display in¬ dividual strength; the high jump and broad jump demand a combina¬ tion of speed and agility; while the running events call on one’s endur¬ ance. Junior James Byrd gets in position to put the discus into high flight It is evident that the 1968 track season will be both exciting and successful for TSHS.

Tri-captains Charles Kenerley, Eddie William¬ son, and Ronnie Miller work with Coach Jen¬ nings Withers to produce a championship team. Wrestling at TSHS has come a long way since it started ten years ago. Our team has won one state championship, two district cham¬ pionships, and many individual championships. One of the prime reasons our team has been so suc¬ cessful in the past is because it has one of the finest wrestling coaches in the state — Coach Jennings Withers. A wrestler must be in superb physical and mental condition in order to participate in the arduous minute matches. Speed, skill, and endurance are the three main goals of ambitious wrestlers; and though strength is a valuable asset, it is usually the skilled matman that wins. Being an individual sport, wrestling builds great self-confi¬ dence. Jimmy Hall displays his tremendous ability to “get the job done” as he applies the pressure to Jim Burrus. 150 for TSHS in Race for WNCHSAA Title Mike “Stud” Turner is breaking his North Rowan opponent down as he prepares for a pin. Eddie Williamson and Ronnie Miller go over some standing moves during practice before an important match. This year’s team will have gained experience, because only two or three of the total thirteen positions will have to be filled by sopho¬ mores. Four seniors will be return¬ ing in the capacity of leaders; they include: Charles Kenerley, Eddie Williamson, Darrell Miller, and Gary Everhart. Also seven juniors will hit the mats again along with sever¬ al starting sophomores. Coach Withers is expecting one of his better seasons due to the exper¬ ience of the returning grapplers. During the months of December, January, and February, the grapp¬ lers have fifteen matches which ex¬ plicitly define a strenuous season. They will participate in the WNCHSAA tournament which will be held during the latter part of February in Salisbury. Bobby Joe Bates illustrates the result of hard work and determination through endless grind¬ ing matches.

SECOND ROW: Jimmy Burrus, Johnny Musser, Steve McCulloch, Don Goins, Robert Saunders, Richard Slack. THIRD ROW: Tommy Baity, Tim Russell. As spring comes to Thomasville, the Bulldog nine take to the new field behind the Brown Finch Me¬ morial Gymnasium. Every after¬ noon such sounds as the crack of the bat, the swish of the ball, and the pop of the glove can be heard echoing from the practice field. Under the leadership of a well- trained coach, the team learns the techniques of good hitting, precise pitching, and expert fielding, which together with co-operation and teamwork, provide the Bulldogs with the ability to compete for the SPC title. Individual work is an essential part of each team victory. Coach Shadrick realizes this as he instructs Kemp Harvey in batting procedure. Tim Russell demonstrates how to put the tag on a sliding player in a tight squeeze. 153 The members of the 1968 TSHS Tennis team are FRONT ROW: Mike Bodenhimer, Bill Bird, Chuck Tew, Steve Noblitt, Brian Jasperse, Robbie Anderson, Robert Jordan.

Every afternoon the tennis team goes through its various drills to build the skills needed by a win¬ ning team. Strong serves are prac¬ ticed faithfully, while emphasis is With a confident smile, Brian Jasperse gets ready to slam the ball for a serve in practice. also placed on learning to hit the ball with clean, hard strokes. Each player works on his own speed, which enables him to move from place to place with quick reactions. This year, TSHS has thirteen exper¬ ienced men who have proved their ability in previous matches and will definitely strengthen the team. The boys do take their tennis seriously, but there is always time for a little clowning around. Steve Noblitt shows the winning form for net jumping. Powerful Golf Team Drives for Perfection For some members of the golf team scores can prove to be exasperating! Under the direction of Coach David Day, the TSHS golfers ar¬ dently practiced each day at the Colonial Country Club. Coach Day and Coke Trimnal, the pro at Colo¬ nial, taught the boys the finer points of the game and as time progressed and experience increas¬ ed, the improvement in their scores was evident. At a point decided by Coach Day, four golfers were selec¬ ted to represent TSHS in the mat¬ ches; the pertinent selection of these players was the mark of will¬ ingness and desire and was the apex of glory for them — a job well done! With thirteen of fifteen golfers returning from last year, the ensu¬ ing season is expected to fluctuate with the seeds of victory. Ronnie Crowder and Rusty Fer¬ guson, two returning lettermen, are relied upon heavily for superb per¬ formances this season. With a val¬ iant team effort this season, Coach Day will wholeheartedly endeavor to bring victory once again to TSHS golfers. The TSHS Golf team for 1968: Austin Fine, Keith Hillard, Jimmy Hall, Jim Miles, Tom Dorety, Rusty Ferguson, Ronnie Crowder, Bobby Hinkle, Lanny Davis, Terry Tysinger, Mike Daniels.

A year of energy, effort, and enlightenment at Thorn asville Senior High School. Each class is unique in itself, with a persona¬ lity of its own. For the new Sopho¬ mores, who quickly became a part of the school, life at TSHS enabled them to accept more responsibility. They learned they must think for themselves and be on their own. For the Juniors, this was a year of hard work, not only academically, but as future leaders of TSHS. The year seems to speed by, and they can hardly believe they are finally to become Seniors. For the Seniors this was truly a year of laughter, tears, and plans for the future. As spring approaches they realize they have reached the point of no re¬ turn. With June, comes the finality of graduation and each Senior walks across the campus for the last time as a proud student of Thomasville Senior High School. The Class of ’68 has that “do-or-die” Dixie spirit that makes them sincerely believe that the “South will rise again” with the help of the TSHS Bulldogs! 1967-68 Year of Senior boys display their spirit and promote this enthusiasm throughout the halls of TSHS every Students enjoy fellowship between cheers at day. pep rallies. 200 Class time, game time, anytime, even lunch time, is spirit time for TSHS! Energy, Effort, and Enlightenment at TSHS Early morning pep rallies sponsored by the Baby Huey Club of the Class of ’68 sparked interest for the big games. 201 have that desire to reach only the top in everything they do. This “ON THE GO” student body lives and thrives on enthusiasm and pride combined into that powerful moving force which unites all three classes — SPIRIT! TSHS—this symbol stands for more than Thomasvilie Senior High School. It also stands for Thomasvilie Students Have Spirit! TSHS students show spirit in the clas sroom, spirit in club activities, spirit in sports, and spirit in their friendly relations with each other. They 202 Learning, living, and laughing together for 180 days out of each year, students grow and mature in ways that are not only physical. They learn the importance of getting along with fellow students, helping each other when the going gets rough, and all the while building a strong character based on many school experiences. These are the molding years — full of experiences that make us face life realistically. During these trying high school years there must be something to fall back on when things seem to be going wrong. What can we rely on? It is as simple as saying TSHS Thomasville Students have Spirit! Win or lose we will be the winners in the end for the students of Thomasville Senior High School know that the old “Bulldog Spirit” will never let them down! Alone, as well as in groups, the students of Thomasville Senior High School are united in heart as shown by their fellowship. 203 INDEX Advertisements. 158 199 Athletics, 132- 157 Band. 78 82 Baseball. 1 53 Basketball. 144 148 Board of Education. 1 10 Boys’ Monogram Club. 157 Business Education Dept., 1 26— 1 27 Cafeteria Staff. 131 Challenj Staff. 95 Cheerleaders. 134-135 Chorus. 86 Closing. 200—206 Cooperative Distributive Ed., 102 Debate Club. 98—99 Dedication. 4 Dietitian, 130 English Dept., 116—117 FACTS AND FUN Staff, 94-95 Features, 12—19 FHA, 104 Fine Arts Club, 85 Football, 136-143 Foreign Language Dept., 118—119 Foreword, 5 French Club, 100 FSA, 106 FTA,105 Girls’ Monogram Club, 1 56 Golf, 155 GROWLER Staff, 92-93 1CT, 124 Guidance Counselor, 130 Journalism, 125 Junior Class, 52—63 Library Club, 107 Maintenance Staff, 131 Majorettes, 79 Math Dept., 122-123 Music Dept., 1 28 National Honor Society, 90 91 Opening Section, 6—1 1 Photography Club, 96 Physical Education Dept., 129 Presidents Club, 87 Principal, Office Staff, 112 PTA, 113 Queens, 16—19 Science Club, 84 Science Dept., 120—121 Senior Class, 22—41 Senior Statistics, 46-51 Social Studies Dept., 114—115 Sophomore Class, 65—75 Spanish Club, 101 Sportsman’s Club, 83 Student Council, 88—89 Superintendent, Staff, 111 Superlatives, 42—45 Supervisor of Education, 130 Tennis, 154 Track, 149 Tri-Hi-Y, 97 VICA, 103 Vocational Dept., 124—125, 127 Wrestling, 150 152 204 THOMASVILLE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL THE 1968 GROWLER Julia Burwell Editor Susan Cushwa Business Manager Mrs. Joanne Cameron Advisor Celia Hooper Assistant Editor Teresa Rimer Assistant Business Manager STAFF Susan Allen Polly Ann Collett Janice Fansler Jeff Hege Brenda Hill Nancy Leonard Carol Murphree Tom Myers Leslie Ott Karen Pittman Carroll Rickard Shirley Robbins Amelia Sisk Ellen Spoolman Mike Styers Vicki Whitaker Joyce Young This year we have been made aware of the importance of class unity and student body spirit. We have learned to appreciate these things because they play a large part in growing up throughout our high school years. I only hope the 1968 GROWLER has captured this “ON THE GO” Bulldog spirit that exists in the leaders, faculty, and entire student body of Thomasville Senior High School. I wish to give special thanks to those “ON THE GO” people who have made the 1968 GROWLER possible. . . Mr. Miles, faculty, and student body for their cooperation. Mrs. Joanne Cameron, our advisor, for the patience she has shown during the many trying times of our publishing the GROWLER and in her earnest support of the fun and fellowship of the staff. Lester Henley and Tim Batten who illustrated their support by their fine photographs; and Mr. Bill Renfro who represented Delmar Studios. Mr. Frank Fleming, consultant from Delmar, who spent many hours lending suggestions and altering his schedule when problems arose. The staff members for making this 1968 GROWLER a reality. Ann Landers, for selecting our Miss Thomasville Senior High. Mr. and Mrs. Russell Van Landingham whose home was used for some “special” pictures. Thomasville Furniture Industries, for allowing us the use of their showroom for photographs. The businesses and manufacturers, whose advertising made possible the funds for the GROWLER. And, finally, my family and friends for their understanding, their optimism, and for listening.
