Tuscaloosa High School

Superintendent of Education                         Dr H.G. Dowling

     Through high school they fly! Seven hundred and more a year, our
     young people - thin ones, fat specimens, dull, brilliant, plain,
     exquisite, courteous and gentle, rude with the ignorant haste of
     youth, patient and industrious, lazy beyond description, bane of
     the teacher's existence, and also ample reward for every effort!
     Hullabaloo in the wide hallways,  regular  beat of cheering from
     the pep sessions, roars from the football field,  sweet  harmony
     in band and chorus rooms, secret whisperings of clubs and cabals,
     rumors of heavy thinking in Math and Science and English  halls!
     And then all too suddenly the last day of school is here;we hand
     them a little parchment roll, give them a friendly pat upon  the
     shoulder,and send them out to ways that neither we nor they have
     properly foreseen.......... H.G. Dowling     1940

Principal of Tuscaloosa Senior High School            Miss Clara Verner

     You come to us as freshmen, wide-eyed, expectant, uncertain in
     your new surroundings. You leave us three years later, poised,
     perhaps even a bit sophisticated. In the interval we hope  you
     have experienced the exhilaration of play, the inspiration  of
     dreams, the satisfaction and pride that comes to those who can
     truly say, We have fought the good fight; we have finished our
     course."     Clara Verner (Miss Clara)   1940
