ROBERT: The 1956 edition of the BLACK WARRIOR of Tus-
caloosa High School is dedicated to the citizens of Tuscaloosa.
These men and women of rare vision have untiringly planned and
labored to make the dream of a magnificent high school building
a glorious reality. in succeeding years hosts of students passing
through these sacred halls will hold in grateful remembrance the
efforts and generosity of our citizens in behalf of the education
of the youth of Tuscaloosa.

LARRY: And don'i forget The library-one of

WE ARE INDEBTED Tt
We welcome Dr. Harvey Nelson to this city from a similar position with the
schools in Huntsville. We believe Dr. Nelson will find Tuscaloosans interested in
proper education of its youth and in the continued development of an out-standing
city school system.
At one of the final board meetings wi
Dr. J. H. Hadley serving os superintende
of Tuscaloosa Schools. We find Dr. Haclle
Mr. Harry Pritchett, Mrs. R. H. Richardso
Judge Feuben H. Wright, Mr. R. H. Dav
and Mr. Paul Burnum. It is to the for
sight of these dedicated men ancl womi
that Tuscaloosa has one of the outstandir
school systems of the state with adequa
school facilities for the city's ever growil
population. We ore indebted to this groi
who have worked so tirelessly to secu
this beautiful new building for us.
FAREWELL TO DR. HADLEY
In paying tribute to Dr. Hadley, we quote from the December 30,
l955, issue of The Tuscaloosa News. "Resignation of City Schools
Superintendent J. H. Hadley to accept a position as assistant to State
Superintendent' of Education opens up a wider field of service for a
man who has given unstintingly of his time and effort for the better-
ment of education in Alabama. Since Dr. Hadley first took office as
city school superintendent, growth has been the keyword for the
school system. lt has been a period of unprecedented expansion for
educational facilities in Tuscaloosa. We believe Dr. Hadley deserves
much credit for the initiative and drive that has gone into the pro-
gram for improving our schools here."
Our principal, Mr. J. R. Pittard, in his
new office. Much thought and planning
went into moving into our new building,
establishing new policies and coordinat-
ing all of the activities of our school and
Mr. Pittard has succeeded well in all of i
l 4 l
.. .s . -..Q -
In Mr. Harold Greer, our assistant principal, we find
a rare combination of disciplinarian and friend to the
students, Attendance supervisor for our large high schoal
is an important iob well done by Mr. Greer.
"Our Miss Brooks" turned office secretary instead of
school teacher is Mrs. Verna Borden, who is Mr. Pittard's
secretary and arranger of schedules, A demon for work,
Mrs. Bardon is the one to see if your schedule is to be
Our photographer was lucky to catch Mr, Tennis
Jackson seated long enough to take his picture. Mr.
Jackson, a trained engineer, is in charge of all school
maintenance. ln a building as large and complex as
ours, this requires an able iackvof-alletrades.
Mrs. Bessie Mae Lewis, our bookkeeper, smiles ap-
proval of her beautiful new office which is adjacent to
the guidance suite, Mr. Greer's office and the central
office. We are fortunate to have a person who com-
bines efficiency with friendliness and helpfulness to stu-
dents and teachers alike.
PARENT - TEACHER ASSOCIATION
OFFICERS: Mr. P. B. Rciiford, Treasurer, Mrs. Ferd Mitchell, Corresponding Secretary, Mrs. Karl
Perkins, President, Mrs. John A. Still, Vice-President, Mrs. D. M. Woodward, Recording Secretary.
EXECUTIVE BOARD: Mrs. Roy Smith, Mrs. Jack Willis, Mrs. T. J. Benninger, Mrs. Ferd
Mitchell, Mrs. C. H. McCrimmon, Mrs. Karl Perkins, Mrs. D. M. Woodward, Mrs. Dan Miller,
Mrs. Chester Walker, Mrs, Manley Hado, Mrs. E. H, Condon, Mr. P. B. Raiford.
Tuscaloosa l-ligh School is fortunate in
having an active and conscientious Parent-
Teacher Association. The PTA's budget this
year gave generous financial aid to the stu-
dent health a n d welfare fund, utilized
through our nurse, Mrs. Kelley, for the bene-
fit of THS students, The money raised by
the PTA barbecue last spring was used to
furnish the women's faculty lounge in our
new building. The PTA sponsored a Christ-
mas dance in the gym, much of the credit for
the success of this dance goes to the hard-
working hospitality committee under Mrs.
Luther Richardson. The members of the
band will long be indebted to the PTA for
helping to finance the annual band banquet
as part of their program to support student
activities. One of the most important and
yet less obvious services of the PTA func-
tioned continually through the school year
in Mrs. T. J. Benninger's keeping the people
of Tuscaloosa informed of school events
through regular newspaper pub-
licity. Under the able guidance
of Mrs. Karl Perkins, PTA Presi-
dent, the many phases of this or-
ganization were coordinated in-
to a working program th at
greatly aided our design for
learning both in and out of the
PTA members enioying the fund
raising Turkey Dinner.

Tuscaloosa High School has a STudent Coune
cil which is an active, working organization. In
our Tirst year in The new school their services
have been invaluable in helping The administra-
tion solve The problems which inevitably arose
from The strangeness of a large, unfamiliar
building. IT is The purpose of The Student
Council always To Tully represent The student
body and To serve as a bridge between The
faculty and students.
Homecoming, an annual event sponsored by
The Student Council, was extremely successful
This year, as was The Beauty Walk, another an-
nual Council sponsored event, which is very
popular wiTh The students.
The oTTicers Tor This year are Robert Ballard,
President, Rob Langford, Vice-President, Pat
Van Scoy, Secretary, Johnny McLaughlin, Trea-
surer, and Buddy Greer, Chaplain. The Council

FIRST SENIOR CLASS T
As Freshman we hitched our wagon to a star, incident-
ally we hit the moon. We excelled in the Sciences, the
Arts, the Languages, the executive branch and the "official
hall roamers club." Let it not be said that our class was
one to pass up the pleasures of T.H.S., There were the
Pep Rallies, the ten minute break between classes, and
particularly the magnificent production displaying the
Junior class's hidden talent. At the price of uncovering
talent we were able to present the senior class with a won-
derful prom. Among the most cherished memories of the
seniors is "first word", ordering senior class rings, and
Problems of Mrs. Cary. Through the eyes of this grad-
uating class we would have made the star, if the moon
hadn't been in the way!

Receiving the Senior rings is certainly
one of the big events of the year. Here

en handing Larry his receipt, and Jeanefie '

Mary Jane- is one of the busiest persons in our
choal. Sho is a constant wonder to everyone as she
toes about doing an excellent iob of being president
if the French Club, Secretary of the Senior Class and
ang-suffering editor of the BLACK WARRIOR. Mary
ane is in both the Honor Society and the Beta Club,
ind the Quill and Scroll. She is a past president of
he Alpha Tri-Hi'Y, and has been elected the most
lependable girl of her class and Miss Citizenship of
,HS by the teachers and students of the senior class.
X charming, even-tempered person, Mary .lane is o
oy to know.
As president of the Student Council, Robert is
widely respected and admired by the students of THS.
He is a living example of the garden that he proposed
in the l954 Student Council campaign: "turnip'f at
every Student Council meeting, "lettuce" be faithful
in our worlc and responsibilities, "squash" indifference
to school problems, and plant "peas" of promptness
and persistence for what is right.
These Seniors were chosen
by a committee of teachers
who iudged them on service
to the school, citizenship, and

Sara is a very dependable person who is al-

her iob as president of the Alpha Tri-Hi-Y,
Sara's leadership, ability and her outstanding
Christian character are much in evidence. She
is o ready, willing, and able worker, and this

Buddy might have gained the title of chief
worrier had it been offered, yet he always has
a smile for everyone. President of his class for
the last two years, this tall, good-looking senior
is president of the Beta Club, of which he is
state vice-president, chaplain of the Student
council, a member of the Honor Society, and
plays on the Basketball team. In addition
Buddy is outstanding as a leader in his church
youth group. We feel that whatever field of
work Buddy enters, he'll be tops!

Last year there were 290 "Jolly Juniors," and 300
this year. Looking back on the accomplishments of our
class, we remember that working on our float meant days
of fun and hectic last minutes in a frantic effort to finish
it iust in time to win second place in the Homecoming
Parade. The Junior Talent Show and the Prom are our
big contributions to the school year. Working together as
Juniors gives us a greater solidarity as Seniors.

The opening of school This year was different be-
cause of our new surroundings. It was fun exploring
the halls and finding new routes to our classes. We
are sure we would have been lost at one time or
another if it had not been for the Beta Club members
who acted as guides.
Our class float helped carry out the slogan of
TNT for the homecoming parade. We all enioyed
working on it, although we didn't win a prize.
Mr. Willman, our guidance counselor, has given
some programs on guidance in the small auditorium
for most of the homerooms, They have benefited
greatly from his help.

tudied from the Anglo - Saxon period
wrough the Elizabethan age, to this

A new course at Tl-lS this year is a variable
course in crafts offered to give students a chance
to develop their talents in many types of handi-
work. Ivlinor sewing such as embroidery, crochet-
ing and knitting, especially appeals to the girls.
Both boys and girls have found basket weaving
interesting, along with work in leather, clay mold-
ing, minor woodworks, printing block linoleum,
rug weaving and metal work.
Industrial Arts is a broad term describing a
class where students learn to use metals, work with
power tools in all types of wood work and train
in the fundamentals of mechanical drawing, the
reading of blue prints and in the elementary princ-
iples of engineering. 80 per cent of the students
in these classes, taught by Mr. Olson and Mr.
Boshell, plan to be tradesman. The other QO
per cent will find their knowledge gained here
valuable in taking care of their own homes.
For seven years Tl-lS has offered Driver's
Training as an elective subject. This course, taught
by Mr. Billy Henderson, is offered to students
sixteen years of age or over who do not have
their drivers license. Austin and Alston Motor
Company of Tuscaloosa has furnished a beautiful
T956 Dodge. Thirty-two students a semester,
eight to a class, go out every other day in the
car and gain actual experience by driving. The
school has insurance covering all of the students

COMMERCE IS BIG BUSINESS
COMMERCIAL TEACHERS-Mrs. Jane Davis, Mrs, Eloise Hale, Mrs. Juarine Van

The big new commercial department consists of
two typing rooms, one for typing classes and one
for shorthand transcript, a machine room with
mimeograph and duplicating machines, plus the
usual class rooms for shorthand, bookkeeping
and general business classes. For the seven typing
classes taught each day there are 36 new type-
writers, much more room and better lighting. Mrs.
Jane Davis and Miss Marion McGraw are new ad-
ditions to our commercial staff.
Shorthand is useful to our students who are
entering the business world and to college entrants
who use it in taking notes in their lecture classes.
General business is the study of different aspects
of business including banking, budgeting one's
time and money, the meaning of credit, the under-
standing of how insurance protects the individual
and the structure and operation of our business
system. Typing is practical as well as fun. Stu-
dents in high school and college supplement their
income with typing. In business law, rules con-
cerning contracts, insurance, real property, bank-
rupt estates and the enforcement of law are
studied. Bookkeeping, another commercial sub-
ject, teaches us how to keep books for a large
or small business and how to revise the standard
procedure to fit any type of business.
Students in Mrs. Van Tassel's typing class try their best
to set a good pace during a timed writing.
Jo Anne and Barbara seem to be enioying their short-

Director-MR. CLIFF HURTER
The Tl-iS Band now feels like "a million" with a new band shell
for practices, lockers for safe storage of instruments, especially the 6 new
basses bought this year, a musical library room and an office far "Cliff",
a separate room for storage of uniforms during the summer and six
practice rooms. No longer does the band practice drills and formations
on the dusty football field, for now they enioy a paved area adiacent
to the band room which is marked by yard lines like a football field,
Dickie Doughty, drum maior, has led the band in performances
in Decatur and Anniston and all home games. They have partici-
pated in civic parades and a concert at the County Fair. In the State
Band Contest, the THS Band made a fine showing under the capable
direction of Cliff l-lurter. Members tried out and made all-state bands
at the State Band Festival. So much interest has been shown this year
in the band that enrollment has been almost doubled over the previous
years, making it necessary for Cliff to train two bandsfa marching, and
o second training band.
Students who have the honor of playing in this band for 4 years
treasure the privilege of being graduated in the beautiful red, white,
and black band uniforms in place of the traditional white cap and gown.

Ch, there is such a contrast between
our new library and the one in the
old building! This year we have a
library department consisting of a
librarian's office, workrooni, a room
for storage of periodicals, two confer-
ence rooins and two large reading
rooms, Another big difference this
year is that students do not use the
library as a study hall, for the two
rooms on each side are used for this
purpose. Because of this, Mrs. How-
ard and Mrs. Martin are now free to
help us find reading niaterial for either
pleasure or reference work. Not only
did the area in sguare feet increase,
but also did the library staff. Our
two new librarians are Mrs, Murphrec
and Mrs. Tidwell, each in charge ol
a reading rooni.
PEOPLE WHO MAKE OUR LIFE MORE COMFORTABLE,
ORDERLY AND PLEASANT
It's "hats oft" to our maids, ian-
itors, and cooks, whose hard
work deserves a debt of grati-
tude from the students. Their
cheertulness in the line of duty
has won many friends among
the student body. The maids and
ianitors have done a wonderful
iob in keeping this huge building
"spic and span". Thanks, too,

choice of a full lunch or a Id carte sandwiches, soups,
salads, drinks, and desserts ata very nominal cost. Just out-
side the cafeteria are 400 book shelves for students to leave

was necessary to form a new club for the
Freshman and Sophomore girls, the Beta Tri-
l-li-Y. The two clubs meet separately and
have their own offices, but they work to-
gether on special projects, At Thanksgiving
the Tri-Hi-Y sponsored the collection of food
in the homeroom, and with the help of the
HifY distributed baskets to 49 needy families.
Every other Monday morning a devotional
is presented over the inter com system by a
Tri-Hi-Y member. To begin Youth Week in
Tuscaloosa, the Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y Clubs pre-
sented an auditorium program on the week's
theme "Our Citizenship Under Christ", with
Rev. J. Will Ormond as speaker. Delegates
were sent to the Mid-Alabama Conference
held in Mobile in the spring and to Youth
Legislature held in Montgomery in th e
An annual project is the publishing of a
daily devotional book written by the stu-
dents. To raise money for this book, a Sock-
l-lop was held in the gym after the Walker
County T. H. S, Basketball Game.

THE SCIENCE Cl-UB THREE CLUBS UNDER SPONSORSHIP OF MR. MURPHY
To increase knowledge of science, to pro-
mote skill, understanding and service, to
create friendship between students mutually
interested in science, and to carry out the
program of the Science Clubs of America:
these are the aims of the Tuscaloosa High
School Van de Graff Science Club. Members
must maintain a C average in scientific sub-
jects as well as have a special interest for
this field. This year the Science Club began
its second year under its new constitution.
Ferd Mitchell, president of the Alabama Jun-
ior Academy of Science, became the Club's
first honorary member.
The long-time members of the Club
found it hard to grow accustomed to the
change of meeting place from familiar room
Q05 in the old high school to a classroom in
the University physics Building.
This year's evening programs included a
field trip to the airport communications
room, a demonstration of the club's own
scientifically controlled tornado, and an ex-
hibition of live reptiles. The year was clim-
axed by a trip to the AJAS convention in

THE PROJECTION CLUB
ln the new school we are fortunate to
have the "small auditorium" in which to
show films and slides. Many teachers find
it profitable to use them as an aid in teach-
ing. Any student who wishes to ioin the club
may do so if he has a free period during the
day. They are trained by Mr. Murphy and
his assistants to run the proiectors expertly
and are available to show movies at any
period during the day. Besides being of
service to the school, the Projection Club
tnay also be of service to individual mem-
bers, for this training may turn into a hobby
or a vocation.

learning how to take pictures, learning
about the different chemicals used in devel-
oping films and pictures, and darkroom tech-
