qs. . ' Thornton Fractional South is a growing adolescent. In ten brief years, it has doubled in size, from 1000 stu- dents and 56 teachers to 1850 students and 100 teachers. The school first opened its doors in the Spring of 1958. Even though there was a split between schools, many problems did not arise. Half of North's faculty was sent to South. Of the twelve members of the Double Sextet at North, eleven were from Lansing, and they formed the nucleus of the organization with only one new member. The Meistersingers were carried over from North with the northern branch changing their name to Northernaires. The Carnival-Stage Show was shared equally between schools with North retaining the Carnival and South receiving the Stage Show. It was christened Fractional Follies and debuted in 1958. The first years at South were years of organization. The Seniors of the class of '59 were given the task of picking the school song, colors, and starting many of the clubs and traditions. There was a large amount of campaigning for school colors with the choice being "orange and blue", "red, white, and black", and the chosen "red and gray." The title of "Rebels" was adopted almost unanimously by the entire student body and the Confederate Hag became the schoolls emblem. The original school song, written by a group of seniors, was sung to the tune of "Dixie" Oh we come from the South and we're called the Rebels. We are fighting, feuding devils, Fight away, fight away, fight away, TF South. When they see us come they all quivver. When we win tonight we'll fry their liver, Fight away, fight away, fight away, TF South. . When they see our team a coming, They shout, "Look out!"
