The man who has had all the headaches of
handling school. club. and bookstore finances
this year has been our capable business man-
ager, George B. Brotherton. In addition he has
ably filled the post of Dean of Boys.
Mr. Brotherton's sincerity. patience, and
friendliness have placed him in the highest
esteem of every member of the student body.
The trials and tribulations of the handling of
every penny of club funds alone would be
enough to try the patience ot' Job: but Mr.
Brotherton has come through it all with the
same warm, congenial smile.
At left: Nancy Marusa and Mrs. Flo
Batson, members of the office staff.
After a year of much planning in the interest of the Amphitheater school system, the Board
of Education is looking forward toward the activation of many of these plans in the coming
One ot' the major plans for the coming year is bringing to our school a dean of girls.
Also, a new eight-room elementary school is being established on west Wetmore Road. The
board is now looking for a site in which to build a new high school. A plan to add nine new
teachers to Amphitheater will make our school more etticient, too. Mr. Paul E. Guitteau stated
that five ot' them will be placed in the high school department and the others are to be placed
in the elementary department.
The members of the school board below are, left to right: Mr. Arthur A. Softley, member:
Mr. W. R. DuBois. president: and lVlrs. Christina A. Bloom, clerk

The Student Council has just finished the most active and successful year in its history.
Under the leadership of an executive committee composed ot' Ed Cottingham, president: Frank
Pellicci, vice-president: Margaret Elberson. secretary: and Helen Ahlgren, treasurer: the group
has materially aided the school administration in building Amphitheater to its present high
The Council got under way on October 4 by putting the rules and iegulations concerning
the Panther Fight Flag into the by-laws of our Constitution. The organization then proceed-
ed to start an organized cheering section called the Panther Pep Squad, joined the National As-
sociation of Student Councils, and participated in two radio broadcasts under the general theme
of bettering the relations between the home and the school.
Perhaps the most outstanding of the Student Council projects this year was our Teen Can-
teen, which was originally to be a meeting place for any of the students who cared to come
either to study or to utilize the recreational facilities. There was to be a snack bar, a coke
machine, a phonograph, and table games, and it was to be open both in the day and in the
evenings. The Tucson Boys' Choir gave a berefit program toward the furthering of this aim:
and the Canteen Committee, with the assistance of many other clubs, fulfilled many hopes
with the procurement of a coke machine and a snack bar. However, due to the innumerable
difficulties and limitations, our present canteen was used only as a meeting place for organized
During the second semester the Council continued its busy schedule by helping the P.
T. A. with their "Back to School Night". sending the executive committee and Mr. Nicholas
Paynovich to the State Convention of Student cr uncils at Flagstaff, suggesting a plan for the mak-
ing of school awards. and conducting a successful drive to improve the cleanliness in the cafeteria.
It terminated an eventful year by handling 'he Student Council elections and sponsoring a
drive for the purchase of CARE packages for schools in Europe,

As the seniors pass through the poitals of Amphitheater high for the last time their minds
drift back into thc past Fhey iemembei the exciting and ex cntful foui yeais that led up to this
The giaduates iecall a gieen bunch of kids trying their hand at putting on a dance the Fresh
man Dance and how amazed they xxeie when it was successful So thev again ventured into the
social field this time with a picnic at Sabino Canyon This too was a success' It is quite possible
that the confidence gained through these early successes is vshat has made this senior class the
biggest and best the school has evei seen
In their sophomoie year the group was full of school spirit This was caused by the fact that
many sophomoie boys weie on the athletic teams and of course the others had to get out and
cheer for them Many new gnls clubs were inaugurated this year and the sophomore girls took
an active part in all of these 'lhe social tradition was continued with the annual Sophomore Hop
the Mexican Hat Dance and many others
The year 1948 started with the Junior Dance This set the mood for the most important so
cial function of the year the Junior Senior Prom For the first time in the history of the school
it was held away from school at the El Rio Country Club The Juniors became prominent by
putting on the best assembly of the year The graduates looking back remember the fun they
had at the end of the vcai when the class used its left ox ei funds to promote a hayride and
picnic at Tucson Mountain Paik
The seniors remember the exhiliration they felt as they became the leaders of the student body
The first material sign that they had really become seniors came with the arrival of the class rings
Then, with these symbols of superiority worn proudly on their fingers, they proceeded to begin
their last year. The first senior social function was the Halloween Dance, which proved as suc
cessful as all the class's other undertakings. In November everyone was kept busy with the Home
coming celebrations. The Hrst semester was concluded with the annual Christmas Party. Ditch
Day in April really lived up to everyones expectations and will remain as a cherished memory
in the minds of all seniors. In this same category as a cherished memory remains the Junior
Senior Prom. In addition to these numerous activities, many new clubs were started this last year
and to the seniors fell the job of leading these organizations. Thus, four years of timeg an unfoi
gettable, carefree period came to an end. A year which had seen the largest and most. active
senior class in Amphi history drive through all obstacles which it faced and emerge quiet and
confident on Graduation day, ended leaving the young men and women standing upon the
.li 7 V

The year of 1948 and '49 was a banner year for the freshmen who have completed one year
of their high school career.
The group began the year by demonstrating the talents and abilities of the class in the
freshman assembly. They tried their hand at social affairs with the annual freshman dance.
The general theme, t'Rhapsody in Blue", was carried out with blue lights and other similar dec-
The class excelled in athletic prowess, too, as freshmen provided the backbone for the "Little
Panthers" "B" football squad. Chuck Williams made the most spectacular play of the sea-
son he raced 98 yards along the sidelines for a touchdown in a game with the Tucson Indian
The girls in the class proved they deserved their place in the sun by many times beating jun-
ior and senior teams in volleyball, basketball and badminton.
The freshman class ofiicers, Danny Peterson, president: Helen Hutchinson, vice-president: Des-
mond Miller, secretary: Harry Wagner, treasurer and Jo McFate, student council representative,
proved to be efficient in filling their positions and carrying out their duties.
If the group continues along the present lines, next year's sophomore class promises to be
one of the best Amphi has seen.

An eighth grade student is a student with an exciting future. It's his "getting ready year."
Getting ready for graduation, getting ready for senior high-life, getting ready for big team com-
petition or that hoped for place in Amphi's snappy high school band. No wonder our eighth
grade is such an active and busy class. Look what's in store for them.
Concrete proof of this preparedness was evidenced by this year's top junior-high class in
their assemblies and in their studies, and in their aptness in the afternoon dancing classes held
every Wednesday and Friday, and which were sponsored by the Tucson recreation department.
The eighth grade will remember 1948-49 socially. too. Gay Christmas parties and end-of-
the-year picnics will never be forgotten.
The National Honor Assembly held every year for the classes was presented on May 13. This
assembly was especially interesting as it showed the progress of the students who are now ready
for high school.
The graduation exercises were held May 24 at 8:00 p.m. on the Panther Memorial field.
Now these students have left their preparation days behind them and are ready to be fullfledged
high school students.

SEVENTH GRHDE ..
This year the seventh grade of Amphitheater has had many interesting activities. Since
they are beginning their preparation for high school, they learned quickly the responsibilities, fun
and routine of high school life.
They have had several parties, such as Christmas parties in each of the home room sections
and school picnics at the cnd of the year. These picnics and parties were enjoyed by all who
attended and they are looking forward to the gaiety of their next year's activities and gradu-
ation in May.
The seventh grade has been holding dances in the Teen-Canteen building all during the
past year. Square dances were also held quite often which were called by Mr. A. Clawson. The
recreation department of Tucson helped to instruct and supervise the afternoon dancing classes
which were held on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The annual honor assembly which is held each year to award outstanding students took p
lace on May 13 in the auditorium.

After two Weeks' rest the team traveled
to Glendale via Greyhound bus and gained
their first victory ol the season over the
class "A" Glendale Cardinals. The Cardinals
put up a strong defense against the Panthers
in the first half and held them to a 7-7 dead-
lock at half. In the second half the running
of Joe Venuti was too much for the Cardinals
and the Panthers ran off to a 26-7 victory.
George Lefferts, Amphi tackle, was outstand-
ing on defense for the Panthers.
Looking beat from the beginning to end,
the McCain men fell before a strong Superior
Panther eleven. Amphi's ground attack was

was the first and only time the Panthers were
held scoreless by an opponent. Joe Venuti,

the Panthers on offense.
Playing their second away game of the
season the Panthers rolled over the herd-
fighting Ajo Red Raiders 40-20. The Pan-
thers scored most of their points in the first
and fourth quarters. The Red Raiders were
behind by seven points 27-20 at the close
of the third quarter but a late scoring spree
climaxed by "Sniffer" To1kan's seventy-
seven-yard touchdown gallop assured the
Panthers of victory.

The Nogales Apaches played their best
game of the season by holding the Panthers
to a 34-O victory in the border city October
29. The Panthers' ground machine never
could get into high gear as the Apaches
put up a strong defense. While holding the
Apaches scoreless, the Panthers led by "Sniff
cr" Tolkan's long runs, scored touchdowns
in the first, second, and third quarters and
scored twice in the final quarter.
'Traveling to Tolleson the Panthers reached
their scoring peak of the season as they
walloped the VVolverines 59-0. Led by Doug
Lindsley, the McCain men never seemed to
do anything wrong as their ground attack
was in high gear. This victory gave the
Panthers a 4 win, 3 loss record for the season.
The Panthers brought their victory string
to four in a row by beating the Badgers in
the "Mile High City", 42-6. The Badgers
fought hard but could not stop the Panthers'
ace halfback, Joe Venuti, who ran all over
the field. The whole Panther forward wall
played a good defensive and offensive game.

state. In '48 they took the class "B" relay
title and a cup with it.
Howard Sanders was the only other re-
turning letterman. He runs the half mile.
Many newcomers were added to the roster.

Bill Kautenburger is a sophomore with
one year of experience and promises to be
one of the best sprinters at Amphi in the

of an elbow injury, Larry Hart. who plays catcher
or infield equally well, Ed Cottingham, who plays
first base and is a good hitter. Paul Waltz, a de-
pendable hitter and shortstop and Frank Pellicci.

In pitching, thc Panthers were given a severe
jolt when Barney Huser. ace Panther flinger, in-
jured his shoulder in a P.E. mishap and didn't
play again until near the end of the season. Bob
Hart. acc southpaw. suffered an elbow injury and
didn't pitch until the middle of the season. Genung

ty to all athletic games. Traditionally they accompanied the band in the Armistice

MARILYN SERGEANT ED LEFFERTS RITA GALLAGHER
Editor Assistant Editor Faculty Sponsor
Early in the year, annual editor Marilyn Ser-
geant and faculty sponsor, Rita Gallagher mapped
out the year's strategy. Section editors and
committees were chosen and things got under
Ed Lefferts, assistant editor, served as the edi-
tor's right hand man. He was always present when
pictures were taken and he did much tracking down
and hard work to get pictures and copy. The admin-
istration editor was Pat Deines who did an admir-
able job of organizing pictures and data on the fac-
ulty. Betty Deeming and her committee put in many
hours arranging the seniors and the lower classes'
individual pictures. Betty cared for the seniors
while her committee members, Dorothy Bennett,
Jane Ralston, and Jo McFate were in charge of the
juniors, sophomores, and freshmen, respectively.
Martha Ballard, junior high editor, was in charge
of the portion of the annual devoted to the seventh
and eighth grades. The athletics section was ef-
ficiently handled by Frank Pellicci and his two
assistants, Bill Hutchison and Johnny Gleeson who
dug up many accounts of games and statistics.
Beverly Shaw, activities editor, had the tremen-
dous job of overseeing the preparation of the Ac-
tivities section, Hers was the job of receiving the
varied copy as it came in and seeing that it was
properly written. Marvin Cohen serving as pho-
tography editor also worked tirelessly as a rewrite
man and copy reader. Marvin and Helen Ahlgren
did much to make the annual a better written
When speaking of an annual it is easy to forget
the very people who make its publication possible,
the behind the scenes workers such as the business
manager, Helen Ahlgren: advertising manager,
Ann Wolff, and the typing editor. Joan Wright.
Helen did an amazing job in keeping the accounts
straight and understandable, while Ann did an
excellent job of selling advertising space. Probably
one of the busiest people on the annual staff was
Joan Wright and her staff who patiently typed and
retyped an endless stream of stories.
Overseeing the assistant editors was editor-in-
chief, Marilyn Sergeant. Her job was that of
laying out the annual, then generally watching the
progress and keeping things moving toward the
ultimate publication date. Miss Gallagher worked
patiently and tirelessly with the entire staff and
to her go manv thanks for her guidance and advice.
