prevailed at the Beta Club Halloween party. '

A new high school building for white
students and one for colored are being
built to be ready for occupancy for the i954-
55 term. The people of Tuscaloosa re-
cently approved a bond issue to provide
one and a halt million dollars-for completion
ot these high schools and much needed ad-
ditions to the over crowded grammer schools
of the city. A new Stafford school on
Fifteenth Street will replace the old building
to which so many thousands of students have
gone to school through the years.
Tuscaloosa with a new hotel, a new hos-
pital, new high and elementary schools is
keeping opace with the best in the nation.
Mr. J. R. Pittard-principal of
Tuscaloosa High, Kind, courteous,
and understanding, Mr. J. R.
Pittard is indeed concerned
about each student. With this
year's students grading them-
selves in citizenship, Mr. Pittard
has shown his emphasis on stu-
dent guidance. With us now
for three years, we all appreci-
ate his interest in us and his
ability to see our point of view.
Mrs. Bessie Mae lewis, our school's bookkeeper, is a most cooperative and patient person.
It was recently found that an average amount of S360 a day posses through her office. Although
this amount, including fees, salaries, lunch money, and school supplies, makes Mrs. Lewis a
truly busy person, she is always happy to help any one of us.
Mrs. Verna Bardon, Mr. Pittard's efficient and smiling secretory, is a well known friend
of all connected with T. H. S. Her many jobs, including making schedules, keeping student's
records, and getting out school announcements and bulletins, are done with such ease that Mrs.
lardon is known by all as an authority an managing a school office.
The City Board of Education
Mr. Hurry Pritchett, Mrs. R. H. Richardson, Dr. J. H. Had ley, Judge Reuben H. Wright, Mr. R. H. Davis, Mr. Paul lurnum
Consulting architects, planning to spend school monies wisely, giving unselfishly of their time to the youth of this city
backing the administration and teachers of our system are iobs filled by these civic minded citizens.
Dr. J. H. Hadley-Superintendent of City Schools.
With the great building program in full swing
Dr. Hadley has a tremendous task ahead. His
progressive and efficient manner of administration
has drown the admiration of all. He carries the
message of Tuscaloosa Schools to the public ef-
The P. T. A., under the efficient leadership
of Mrs. Mem Tierce, has had splendid attend-
ance in l953-54. Both fathers and mothers
come to the interesting hour long meetings
which take care of business, problems common
to parents and teachers of teenagers. Buying
two coffee urns for use in entertaining large
groups, sponsoring recreation nights for high
school groups, and assisting in bringing Mrs.
Grace Sloan Overton, nationally knovvn author-
ity, to deliver lectures for teen-agers are major
proiects for the year.
RIGHT-Mrs. Mem Tierce, president of the P.T.A.
For the second year a tea honoring
the faculty has been given by the P. T. A. in
the spacious and beautiful home of Mrs.
Mem Tierce. These teachers and P. T. A.
members enjoy refreshments at the tea.

Whether the future need is arithmetic for simple computation, algebra solutions
of business and scientific formulas or the application of indirect measurement processes,
the math student of T. H. S. has opportunity to get the facts.
