Another year is nearly finished. For some it has been a year of splendid achievementsg for others, accomplishments of lesser degrees. But for all there should be a satis- faction of having effected some improvement in skills and personal betterments The year has been successful in so far as each student has that satisfaction, accompanied by a desire to do even better next year.

He was none other than Mr. Lanier himself, Stepping into his atomobile, he dropped e little power pill in a slot and roared away. Mr. Lanier, with characteristic sgyggggfgigg, was bent on contacting the successful class of !47.' His interest was purely business and er, curiosity. Upon reaching the cut- skirts of the metropolis, he spied a little gray donkey led by Kenneth Tiffany. J Following him was Sherman Wright with a shovel over his shoulder. Informing Mr. Lanier that they had just invested their life's savings in these two possessions, they added, without further ado, that they were going to the famous Lost Dutchman Mine. If their venture proved fruit- ful, they would most assuredly buy some of his Worthless In- surance. Upon his arrival at the west coast, Mr. Lanier heard Harold CPepsodentl Kleinman had just taken over the Bob Hope show. Furthermore, he learned that Rosemary Davison had had her oscar insured which she won in the Rogg tg Elgggggg, co- starring with Jimmy Durante. La Davison informed him that Gloria Kenworthy was too busy for an interview, as she sang under water every day for the Reynold's Pen Company. Worth Bartlett was famous on the west coast as the yeas! Maggy He led Mr. Lanier to likeable prospects of life insurance,Cordyce Clonts and Montie McCutcham, public enemies No. 1 and 2 erespectively, who had at last resolved to quit stealing candy Pfrom innocent babies. Bai Johns, he found, had given up tennis to become the worldfs champion yo-yo-er. His latest record was 850 yo-yo's. He had insured his diamond-studded yo-yo for t5o,coo. 30' tween yo's he revealed the secret of John Dye 's Transcontin- ental Tunnel for tricyclers. ' e At the push ofea button, Mr. Lanier's automobile turn- ed into a atomoplane. He landed in Sidney5Auatralia,where he met Mrs. Skousen, nee Mary Jo Fates, who was in town shopping for the week-end. She sent him out to see Bobby Skousen and Oscar Montgomery, the biggest, kangaroo barons in the land from down under. They had invested in a double indemnity policy for each of their kangaroos. Gladys Mchlexander had transferred her service from the VaKi Inn and was managing the Rice Bowl, a famous restaurant in Hong Kong, China. With super aplomb, she served a bowl of half-grown rice to Mr. Lanier. ' - .ru - n .. ,+. Stopping in gay Parse he found Mary Solen Holland model- ling hoop skirts for Francene Lovelace's Famous Female Future Fashions. Both bought policies without a struggle. Lady Florence Bradley, wife of the deceased Lord Uyster Bottom, bought a policy for her pet pup's platinum plate. Once again he soared over the water and landed in New York. He purchased cosmetics from Mary Appel who had boug out Helena Rubinstein. Dorothy Blalock took a lot of'credi for her new products as chief chemist in her laboratory. Th tired traveler took the evening off from his insure ance and went to the grand opera. He discovered Bennie Boone singing the leading part in The Barber gg Seville. Her heavy schedule included Carmen and Tristram and Isoldg, Later he met Betty June Clark who explained breathlessly that she had to catch a boat. Her uncle had left her a for- tune and she was now touring the world. Feeling ill, Mr. Lanier decided to stop at John Hopkins in Baltimore. The head nurse, Bonnie Robertson, sent him to Doctors Whitaker and Mirkin, who were packing. After losing their tenth consecutive patient, they had decided to dissolve their partnership and become Pull-fledged butchers in Don Pen's packing house. Don had bought all of his stock whole- sale from the Rodeo association, after Eddie Schell, cham- pion cowboy, had killed them with his wild rope. Going down to Georgia, he found the battling politicians Nadine McC1eery and Rosa Lee Horton---fighting it out, tooth and nail, for the governorship of the state. Nedra Ray, also in the vicinity, was a famous chemist and cook, cooking deli- cious spun rubber for the Sympathetic Rubber Company of Amer- ica. In St. Louis, Leonard WFistyN Fitzgerald, is now fin idol of America's skirt twirlers, having just won the world's kindergarten wrestling matches. Mr. Lanier could not catch up with Francis Kuyksndall and Clinton Nelson, They were riding the rods of only the best trains, publishing and distributing The Egpg Eggs. George Acton was found coaching at P. U. No insurance could be sold there. In Bed Springs, Texas, he found Lafon Buzbee. Sh was chief supervisor of the Texas branch of the American Tele- phone and Telegraph Association. Lafon told Mr. Lanier to look in the dry counties of Texas for Madge Dixon and Edna Veazey. Remotely exconced, they lore'-bootlegging cactus' juice. P ft e Homeward bound, he raced his atomohile toward Eloy. Here he chatted amiably with Mildred Merrill, E1oy's pros- perous architect. She was designing Jack Pretzer's fifty- room tent with a special garbage disposal. Jack had em!-seed a ffutune with his muscle-building machine, B - - Em. Returning to Coolidge, he stopped at the paper office where: he fsund Billie Van Orman editing Martha Ayer writing a daily, 1 o Yo end Ruby Mae Wilson scribbing ' a que ation-and-answer column. Mr. Lanier returned to his 'gpg-tggggggpgm after e not-too-unusual week-end. As he relaxed, he smilingly thought of his class of '47 and how they had all surpassed the heights of their respective abilities: I E e E z E i I E I' I i 1 i E L 5 5 5 E F E E . r 5 Z E I E E i I 1 1 . Z" ,ef7f.41,.g-fd A 2 'nn Class of 47' has had a very successful and eventful four years of high school at dear old CUHQSQ Being initiated as little green Freshmen, we didn't have much of a chance at first, but after tne first day we gained our composure. We elected Mr. Jenkins as our class sponsor who was very helpful with the Sophomore Return and other social affairs given during that year. As Scphmores we got to do the initiating for a change, and then started off the social' affnirs of the year by honoring the Freshmen with the Freshmen reception. During that year we selected Mr. Lanier as our class sponsor who stayed with us for the rest cf our high school days. lhe Junior year proved to be a lot of work, and also fun, as ie sold pop and hot dogs at all football games and sponsored the football dances in an effort to earn money for the annual Junior- Senior Prom. We also helped the cause by present- ing the Junior play, "Charley's Aunt", which was said to be one of the best plays ever given here. We did a very good job of making money, and as usual the Prom was the outstanding social event of the year. We used the desert theme in our decora- tions and got many compliments on our works At long last. we finally reached the honored po ition of "Seniors", and our work being over we made the agreement to have fun, which we did. We had our Senior Ditch Day May 2 and 5, at Mount Lemon beside our other parties. 'lhis year's graduating class has not only been outstanding in social affairs but in all the activities around school, athletics, music. etc. We have maintained a high scholastic average, and have had several on the honor roll each time. In all drives we have como out at the top Although we have lost a few of our classmates that started with us, during the years we have gained some new ones. And all of us will always remember the good times we have had together. 1 2 2 3 I 3 s E 2 z I 5 K5 '1 QE5mf? fW,fyxQy Q k1RN 1 l N Q N NX .. . :L.Jl"N is QM f ...jjj 5 X -1: ,-9, 33' Q .- , ,WXJ Ei ,K f gf 9i 'g - NK..

It was a lot of hard work selling h iffggiard het coffee--but was a lot of fun. The Juniors threw a big Christmas party Dec. 20 with food, punch, and presents for everyone. A swell time was had by everyone there, including a few teachers. Remember all the hubbub at the first of the year? Well, it was only the Juniors choosing class rings. Finally, after much debating and indecision everyone was satisfied. The theme for .he Junior-Senior Prom :this year followed the story of The Wizard of Oz. A banquet honoring the Seniors also carried out the Oz theme. . On Junior Kid Day the true Juniors were 5..w, The years were turned back and the Juniors emerged as carefree children.

'Ihis year's team consisted of a well balanced line and a firey backfield. The veterans returning-1ke4.. from last year were Jim Vidano, Oscar Montgomery5,'a' ,ggij2y,E qi Jack Pretzer, kent McEuen, Sylvester Jones, Gene Volmar, Uscar Bueno and eddie Schell. The new members of'the starting lineup were Don Pew, J. B. Carter, and George Acton. This year the foot-all team of Coolidge High continued its domination of the East Central Valley Conference by taking its seventh Consecu- tive Conference Championship. The Bears placed two players, lineman, deck Pretzer and back, Eddie Schell, on the Conference first team, and lineman, Oscar Montgomery on the second team. .Coolidge was represented at the all star North South Game at Tem e by lineman Jack Pretzer and backs Eddie Schell and George Acton. Eddie Schell was chosen Second Team All State. After a hard sixteen days of practice under the watchful eyes of coaches Uhlson, Lani0r, and Wismer, the season was opened against Aja. The Bears defeated the hed Raiders by a score of 32-13 with a powerful running attack by Acton and SchelL All the touchdowns were made by runs between 40 and 86 yards in length. ' In the second game the Coolidge Sears out- scrambled the Amphitheater Panthers, 13 to 6, in the rain at the Panther field, with little Eddie Schell scoring both touchdowns. Right Guard, Jack Bretzer was the standout for the line. The Bears eked out a 6 to 6 tie against the Tempe Buffalows in the first home game of the sea- son played in Coolidge High School's new stadium. a smooth passing attack of In a game marked by Tbmpe's team, Coolidge showed itself weak on past defense. The Coolidge Bears defeated the Superior Panthers 34-13. The touchdowns were made by runs between 50 and 96 yards long. Eddie Schell made s 96 yard run which was the longest of the season. Montgomery stood out by placing his kickoffs be- tween the Panthers goal and I0 yard line. M-fly? Q4- New the Bears were put to a real fight when they played Florence. The odds were against them by weight and the Gopher's strong aerial attack, The final Score was 7-O in favor of the Gophers. However, this was not the last of the Coolidge and Florence game. A Florence Gopher was proved inel- ligble and the game was forfeited to Coolidge 1-0. T e following week the Bears invaded the Chandler Wolves domain and succeeded in trouncing the folves 31 to 13 with the Cubs playing half the game for Coolidge. Scoring 20 points the first five minutes of th game, the Bears smashed the Nogales eleven, L7 to 13, in the eighth game of the season, The Bears journeyed to the Casa Grande Cou- gar's field of mud where both teams had all kinds of bad luck. The teams came out about equal in had breaks in their scrambles for the ball. At the final quarter the score was 14 to 13 in the favor of Coolidge, Every Bear who played showed unusual spirit and determination. In the last game of the season against the Mesa Jackrabbits, the Bears held their opponents scoreless for the first quarter. The first half promised a good game, but injuries and lack of sub- stitutes for Gcolidge gave the Jackrabbits the de- cisive victory of 42-0. The following players were awarded letters in football: Sylvester Jones Eddie Schell Oscar Montgomery George Acton Roland Freeland Gene Vollmar Duane McKinney J. B, Carter Bobby Skousen Kent MdEuen Nelson Gammon Oscar Bueno Jack Pretzer B111 Davis Don Pew Jim Vidano O . i The Coolidge Bears started their season by drubbing a Casa Grande team 14-4. Oscar Bueno and Warren Thompson were the Bear's pitchers for the day allowing only 3 scattered hits between them, and striking out seven batters. Joe Ortiz was the outstanding hitter getting 4 hits out of 5 times at bat. Salazar and Armenta were worked for l2 hits. Runs vera made as follows: Ortiz, 33 Perkins, 25 Jones, 25 Acton, 35 Freeland, 23 Vidano, lg and Bueno, l. The Bears opened the Conference with a win over Hayden of 3 to 1, with pitchers Bueno and Thompson holding the Hayden boys to two hits. Acton completed the battery behind the plate. The Hayden pitcher, Roy Montana, allowed 7 hits and struck out 12 Coolidge batters. Runs were made by Ortiz, Perkins, and Schell. The lone run made for Hayden was made on a Coolidge error. In the next game Casa Grande was defeated for the second time bv the Bears. George Acton pitched for 4 innings and Joe Ortiz was behixd the plate. Then Ortiz pitched and Acton caught. They both allowed only 3 hits while the Bears pound- ed out 9 hits from the two Casa Grande pitchers. The game ended with Coolidge again the winner, 12-1. The only run the Cougars made was a ho e-run by Salazar. Coolidge won their next game at the expense of the Sup- erior Panthers, 12-5. Bueno pitched and Acton caught. The Panthers collected 4 hits from the Bear pitcher and Coolidge collected 9 from the fcnther pitcher. Bueno pitched seven strikeouts. Coolidge made three errors to Superior's four. Catcher George Acton of Coolidge and catcher Joe Herrada of Superior both tallied home runs, the first of the season for the new Coolidge field. Coolidge racked up three runs in the first inning, four in the second, and five in the third be- fore Superior tightened up to hold the Bears the rest of the gamr. George Acton of Coolidge turned in the best hitting performance of the day with with a 3 for L average. Coolidge managed to keep a clear record for 5 consecu- tive games when they defeated Ray l.'3 in a tight ball game. Neither team scored until the xixth inning and all the runs for both teams were made in that inning. The Bears, with Bueno pitching and Acton catching, collected six hits from the Ray pitcherg Hay, with Gonzales pitching and Martinez catching, got four hits. Three of the Eesr's runs were made on errors and all of Ray's runs were made on errors. Cool- idge's winning run was made by Joe Ortiz, after he doubled and he was brought in by Jones with a single. The next game was a tie between Coolidge and Superior. The reason for this is explained as follows: with two outs, Joe Herrada, Superior catcher, was on third base in the last of the second inning. Fraijo was up to bat, George Acton, who was pitching, pitched the ball and the batter, who was Eryiggtto get out of the way, accidently hit the ball with is . 50021440 Joe Ortiz, who w's catching, fielded the ball and threw him out at first. Herrada came in on the same play and crossed the plate before the out was made. The run was counted in the scorebook, but in the rule book it says: Wwith two outa, if a hitter is thrown out at Fgrst base, even if a runner from third scores befgre the out is made, the run gill ggi ggggt.' -So the real score was A-L, but Superior stillhad the last of the seventh to bat, and maybe they would have won the game in that last half. Who knows? The next game was with Florence, and the Bears blew up in the 6th inning. Florence collected A runs to tie the score 8 to 8, This was the first loss in seven games. The final score was 10-8. Bueno struck out ll Florence batters and gave up 6 hits. The Florence pitchers, D. Celera and Hawkins, gave up 8 hits.

R L i C 1 E E The Coolidge High School Bears opened their basketball season with a five game win streak be- fore the Tempe Buffaloes snaped it with a ,43436 victory. At the opening of the season the Bears were without the service of several of their regu- lars. This was due to the North-South football game and to injuries received during the football season. Even with this handicap the Bears had little trouble downing a determined five from Mar- ana 43-34. After the Tempe defeat the Bears came back in great style to smother both Chandler and Hayden with lopsided scores. When the week of the Florence game came along the Bears were determined to snap a four game losing streak to the Gophers. At the end of the regular game the score was 3Lup. In a two minute over time the Gophers were able to take a two point lead 36 +0 34. So again, five straight, the Gophers had come out on top. The following week the Bears expected to take an easy victory from the weak Cougars, but again the overconfidence never pays off. Coolidge came out under the heap 34 to 36. The Bears now sought revenge for two defeats and took their next two games in short order. With the Marana game coming up the Bears figured they would have no trouble, but at the end of the game Marana was on top by a score of 33 to 28. - Determined now to come out of their slump the Bears bounced back with a 42 to 27 victory over the strong Tempe five. The Bears now came to the top only losing one more game of their regular season to Mesa 44 to 34. In the second of their two game series with Florence the Bears de- termined to snap that five game win streak, and when the dust and smoke had cleared the Bears were on top 27 to 25. 4-.., Q5 ' . Mgf In the tournament Coolidge dropped their game to Tempe 29 to 25. In their second game for Con- solation, Coolidge dropped Hayden 42 to 15. In the third game Coolidge and Gilbert battled it out and at the end the score was Gilbert 33, Coolidge 31. Thus the 1946-47 Basketball season ended. Coolidge had a successful season although they never made the State tournament.

It is give ard take, build and break, Aid often it ends in a fight. But he surely wins who honestly tries, Regardless of realth or fame. He can never despair who plays it fair-- Say! How are you playing the game? Do you wilt and whine if you fail to win In the manner you think your due? Do you sneer at the man in case that he can, And does, do better than you? Get into the thick of it--wade in, you! whatever your cherished goelg Brace up your will till your pulses thrill, And you dare--to your very soul! Do something more than make a noiseg Let your purpose leap into flame As you ,lu ge 'ith a cry, NI shall do or dieln Then you will be playing the game. 4-1 1 Velda Abbott-.Working in Coolidge Tom Adamo--University of Arizona Helen Anderson--Going to school in California Olivia Barrios--Married living in Coolidge Jimmie Davis--Army Air Corp Milton Burroughs--Working in the bank at Casa Grande Betty Corbett--Working in Prescott lhrilyn Elsberry--Working in Coolidge lhggie Fields--Tempe State College Sue Kyser--Living in Coolidge Mack lIoEuen--United States Army Frank Mauldin--University of Arizona Betty Ruth Moody--Arizona State College, Flagstaff lhrgie Neighbors--Junior College, lfhngun., Oklahoma Mary Ellen Rose-Married living in Coolidge Curtis Shaw--Working in California Vance Taylor-QUnlversity of Arizona Bill.
