The Senior Class of 1963
Tuskegee High School
Tuskegee, Alabama Mr. E. W. Wadsworth
On the fortieth anniversary of the publication of your student annual,
The Tuskala, I extend warm greetings and congratulations for a job well
done, Over the years The Tuskala has been primarily the results and
efforts of the Senior Class, and the unselfish devotion of the senior class
sponsor, without whose help and guidance it could not have been done,
As you leave Tuskegee High School may I leave with you the admoni-
tion and advice of a very wise king, King Solomon, the son of David, who
said in his proverbs, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:
but fools despise wisdom and instruction, "
"My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law
of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and
chains about thy neck,"
"My son, forget not my law, but let thine heart keep my command-
ments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to
"Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck:
write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good
understanding in the sight of God and man,"
These truths I leave with you to remember in the years ahead,
Yours very sincerely,

The history of the class of 1963 in some ways resembles a long trip or journey. With your per-
mission I will review the trip taken by the seniors on a bus called the T. H. S. EXPRESS.
If we look closely we can see a line of 3l young passengers waiting for their tickets to the big
CITY OF KNOWLEDGE. They are as follows: EDWARD ERASWELL, ALICE BRYANT, GARY COOPER,
STEVE COOPER, FAYE DIXON, NELLIE DOBBS, JOHN DYSON, NANCY FISHER, WAYNE FORTNER,
RENI I-IUDDLESTON, HOWARD JONES, DIANNE KIRK, BRENDA LAMBERT, LINDA MCLEAN, MAMIE
MORGAN, SHARON PETTYJOHN, FRANK PORTER, ALLAN SEGREST, BILLY SELMAN, TALEEDA
SHARPE, CHARLOTTE SISTRUNK, PATSY TAYLOR, MICHAEL TERRY, LAVINIA TYSON, FRANCES
LOUISE WADSWORTH, CHARLOTTE WALTERS, EDWARD WILLCOXON, BERRY WILLIS, MARY ANNE
YARBROUGI-I, and BUNNY SPRATLING.
As these scared passengers boarded the bus, they became very excited about the first stop that
they would make at Harrisonville in Cambell County. It seemed as though none in the entire 31 had
ever made a trip like this before, and naturally they didn't know what to expect. But, by the time
they reached the second town, Herdville in Anderson County, they had begun to get a very vivid
picture of the entire trip.
It was while they were in this second town that they picked up a new passenger, GAY BOWERS.
At the next town, Hurtville in Howe County, they received another new passenger, JIMMY STILLWELL
but lost NELLIE DOBBS, who got on another bus. At the fourth stop, Sheppard City in Oster County,
FREDDIE LEDBETTER boarded their bus. When they reached Webbville in Varner County, the fifth
stop, they unfortunately lost HOWARD JONES, but at their sixth town, Thomasville in Cosby County,
they were joined by JIMMY GREEN. After touring the sixth city the passengers were treated to
festivities by the owners and operators of the bus, and were reminded that they had already com-
pleted half of their trip.
They had such a long rest at the previous city that they decided not to stop in the seventh city,
but when they did stop at the eighth one, DIANNE KIRK stepped off, and HOWARD JONES stepped
back on. At their ninth stop, Freshmanville, NELLIE DOBBS and DIANNE KIRK decided to join them
again. At the tenth city, Sophomoreville, they gained RICHARD WALKER and once again lost NELLIE
DOBBS. Before reaching the final stop they picked up SANDRA BEASLEY, FRANKLIN TALLY, and
If we look closely once again, we can see the bus approaching its destination, the CITY OF
KNOWLEDGE. All of the passengers will in a very short time leave the T.H. S. EXPRESS, never
again to take a tour on her. Their futures have in some ways been shaped by this bus, but once they
complete their trip, their destinies in the CITY OF KNOWLEDGE will be shaped by themselves.

A PRCPH ECY F0
While riding home one afternoon after school, I noticed a trailer on the side of the road. A large
sign out front proclaimed the following: "Madam Lucifer--Knows All, Hears All, Tells All." I
suddenly decided that it would be fun to have Madam Lucifer tell me her version of what the Seniors
would be doing 20 years from now. So here are the predictions of my far-seeing friend as to what my
classmates and l would be doing in the year 1983.
1. Gay Bowers is now employed at the Gay-Love Department store owned by Phil Godfrey and managed
by Tommy Bradley.
2. Frank Porter is having to work very hard these days so he can pay alimony to Brenda and support his
present wife, Linda McLean. He has a part-time job as a Fuller-brush man and he's really enjoying
3. Taleeda Sharpe has invented a new dance called "The Charles Bell Stomp." lt's done with the
accompaniment of "many little Bells. "
4. Admiral Howard L. Jones was lost at sea when he tried to water-ski behind his submarine. The sea
will never be the same again.
5. Diane Spratlin Kirk, whose husband is President of the Better Plumbing Bureau, is at home busily
producing numerous little pipes and corks.
6. Wayne Fortner is now Chief Grocery Sacker at the ASLP. He was finally promoted when Charlie
Bell retired at the age of 103.
7. Patsy Taylor has been working at the Big Bear for "Evers and Evers and Evers."
8. Ricky Walker is running for Governor of Alabama. He finally graduated from the John Patterson
Trade School and insists he has all the qualifications.
9. "Crash" Cooper is one of Ricky's biggest supporters. He's also running for Lt. Governor. "Crash"
is a little late in getting started on his political career, because he has been busy completing his
10. Gary Cooper has signed a new contract as "boss guitar" with George Daughtery's Combo. They
travel around with Ricky and Crash helping them get votes.
11. Frances Louise Wadsworth, having finally decided between her Andys', is contentedly milking cows
and feeding chickens in the big metropolis of Roba, Alabama.
12. Jimmy Stillwell is in New Guinea trying to sell false teeth to the cannibals.
13. Brenda Lambert, better known as "Big-Un, " is still trying to improve her figure by riding bicycles
down to the Pike with Tom-Tom and Greff.
14. Bunny Spratling and Jean finally got back together and they're declaring to everyone they meet that
the second honeymoon is much more romantic than the first.
15. Sharon Pettyjohn is running for State Senator. One of the main policies in her platform is the entire
abolishment of all roads leading from Tuskegee to Roba and Tallassee.
16. Edward Willcoxon is the top scientist in the country. He became famous with his two great in-
ventions: instant cars and instant girls.
17. Nancy Fisher has started her own baseball team, the Roger-Dodgers. Their home base is Notasulga
and its rumored they even get free publicity in the "big" Tuskegee News.
18 Edward Braswell is busy writing books. His latest is Simple Rules for the Young Man on His First
' Date or in other words How Not to Fall Off a Girl's Front Porch After Kissing Her Good Night.
E SENICR CLASS
19. Mary Ann Yarbrough has created quite a problem at St. Maggie's. It seems every time she walks
down the hall all the men patients' temperatures go up 10 degrees.
20. Allan Segrest finally got to be principal at T.H.S. He's really doing a fine job and has added
several new courses. One of them is "I-low To Succeed After Trying For 20 Years."
21. Freddie Ledbetter has settled down to one girl, Gloria Knight, and they run the Dari-Delite, which
was left to Gloria by a former owner.
22. Alice Bryant is in the courts in a big legal hassle. It's rumored she tried to put out her own line of
"Bobbie Brooks. "
23. Lavinia Tyson is now Middle-Weight Champion of the World. It seems she won her title protecting
"a certain boy" from a few of his fans.
24. Michael Terry graduated from the John Patterson Trade School with a degree in hair dressing. He
devotes most of his time to keeping Lillian's hair its "natural" color, so that now her hairdresser will
be the "only" one that knows. -
25. Faye Dixon has replaced Dale Evans as the "Queen of the West. " They say she's mobbed by her
many male fans every time she steps out of her mansion in her hip-slung riding pants.
26. John Dyson, having finally discovered girls, is trying to get Gay Bowers to leave her job at the Gay-
Love Dept. store and come to work at Lakeview as his private grease monkey.
27. Mamie Morgan, after all these years, still hasn't gotten over her crush on Billy Selman. So now, she
runs the "Little Texas Spinster's Club" where all the girls at T.H. S. that had crushes on "Our Hand-
some Guy" go to live with precious memories.
28. Jimmy Green married Shirley Owens and they have a vegetable garden in Roba where they're raising
spinach, turnips, and other "Greens. "
29. Charlotte Walters and Calvin Sears finally got married. At first they said they were going -to wait
until he was 21, then it was 31, then 41 and so on for many years. But they finally made it and the
lovely "old" couple have gone to the Golden Age Rest Home in Montgomery for a long, leisurely
30. Franklin Tally is still piping sunlight in to the natives at Society Hill.
31. Sandra Beasley is the typical housewife and is very busy bringing up all her little "Beasley's Blessings.
32. Berry Willis is the new singing idol of the nation. He got his start on "Rocking With the Deuce", a
variety show in Columbus, Georgia.
33. Linda McLean, better known as "Lip, " "Poopsie, " and "Picklepuss, " after chasing Hamp Boles,
Thomas Lawrence, Frank Porter and Heaven-Knows-Who-Else, finally caught Frank and persuaded
him to marry her.
34. Charlotte Sistrunk is serving a long sentence in jail for bigamy. They say when she couldn't make up
her mind between Charles Russell and Donald Martin, she just married both of them.
35. Nellie Dobbs is a missionary somewhere in South Africa and is busy teaching the natives the ancient
dance rituals of the Baptists.
36. Billy Selman, famous for his great atheletic career at T.H. S. , is now chief water boy and assistant
bat boy for the Tuskegee Institute Golden Tigers.
37. Reni Huddleston had her classmates worried for a long time: she just never seemed to get over the
fact that Donnie married someone else. But Jim, Cooter, and Richard have helped her snap back
and she's now her happy self in Panama City running Reni's Roost, a nice family-type resturant.
I don't know if any of these predictions will come true, maybe we'd better hope some of them don't.
But, nevertheless, I do hope that the next 20 years will bring much luck, happiness and the best of every-
thing possible to each and every member of the Senior Class of 1963.
