A song of the Senior Class
Of old Flora High
VVe'd like to tell each one
'llhat the time is nigh
That we must leave our school
'llo make our wish come true
Our hopes arise neath cloudy skies
'llo see the sun shine through.
Wle dread to leave our school days
'llhat we love so well
Vllhere we had to learn to hgure
Also read and spell
Our basketball games were fun
And football games were too
So with our plays and class night
Hell hid adieu to you.

BOYD Mmm EToN wn.soN
COACH BERT DANCEY-Bert Dancey completed his 20th season as head football
coach at Flora and with this 20th team he produced one of his best aggregations from what
looked like some green material. Bert started his 20th season with one lineman back and three
veteran backfield men and the rest of the l946 eleven were produced from last year's second
and third team. The juggling of players to till vacant spots and the moulding of inexperi-
enced players into seasoned veterans was quite a manipulation by mentor Dancey. Coach
Daneey has produced 9 conference champs for Flora in the past 15 years which is quite a
feat in itself. After 20 years of truly great coaching Bert has topped all previous marks
with his 1946 team which broke all conference records. From very ordinary material Bert
produced a truly great line which went unscored on in conference play, a mark which will
be hard to equal and this same line paved the way for the Flora backs to score 303 points
which is an all-time mark in Flora history.
ASSISTANT COACH RICHARD CONLEY---Dick Conley has faithfully and diligent-
ly worked with the subs so they would be ready for varsity competition when time came to
play. He has become a very fine scout and when it comes to picking out other team's strong
points and weaknesses there are none better. This faithful work of an assistant coach has
become one of the vital factors for the continued strength of Flora football teams.
HUBERT CARROLL-Halfback-"Rlert" as he is commonly known rode the bench
for three long years and then finally came to life in his senior year to make the first team
backfield. Rlert who started the season as just another player began blocking and tackling
with such vigor that he outclassed all other candidates for the vacant quarterback position
After winning the starting position be became an asset to the team as his blocking paved
the way for many a Flora touchdown. He finished the season with such form that he even
surprised himself when he won honorable mention on the all N. E. C. team.
DON "CODY" HARCRAYES-Tackle-"Cody" was the largest man on the squad and
was exceptionally fast for his size. After the first game he showed steady improvement
until at the close of the season he was one of the best tackles in the conference. Cody could
be depended on at all times to do his best on offense or defense. He is a senior and will be
greatly missed off next year's team. Cody was also chosen on the All Conference First team
MARION "PETE" BllDDLETON-Guard-Although one of the smallest members of
the line this year, Pete was a hard man to beat. He was alert and hard to block. On defense
it was a difficult task to go over or around him as many opponents soon learned. Pete was
a consistent player and never let down while he was in the game. He is a senior and will be
sadly missed on next year's team. Pete received honorable mention in the N. E. C, selection.
GALEN "RED" SCHROEDER--Halfbaele-"Red" was one of the fastest men on the
squad and a hard runner. VVhen called on to carry the ball he was always good for some
yardage. He was a good blocker and on defense he was seldom pulled out of position by
fake plays. He was exceptionally good on pass defense and often turned an opponent's pass
into a Flora touchdown or good gain. He was a live wire and was always full of energy.
He, too, is a senior. Red was picked for Center on the All N. E. C. first team.
BOB BLACKBURN-"Blackie"-Tackle-A two year first team veteran, Bob has
been on the first team three years now. His first two years he played tackle but being the on-
ly man back on the line this year he was moved to end on offense and tackle on defense.
Bob was big and had the experience that was needed for good line blocking and was out-
standing end and tackle both. Bob's powerful offensive blocking broke away the backfield
time after time. On defense Bob was a respected tackle and chilled many a runner by break-
ing into their backfield and setting them back for losses-Bob was placed on the All-Star
Conference second team at tackle. He will be greatly missed by Coach Dancey. So long Bob
and good luck.
MELVIN DOLD-"Joel'-Fullback-Melvin has become one of the best fullbacks in
the State. He ended the season by breaking the state scoring record with 158 points for a
Page Thuty ezghl
nine game season. He was the leading scorer in the conference. He was picked for the first
All-Star N. E. C. and on Pat Harmon's all state team as tackle. Melvin's blocking, tackling,
passing, and ball carrying has aided Flora to two Conference Championships in a row.
Melvin's a senior, but we doubt very much if this ends his football careerg many colleges
are after him already. VVe all wish you the best of luck in years to come, Joe. You represent
Flora wherever you go.
JACK HENDERSON-Halfback--Jack is the fastest man Flora has had in their back-
field for quite a while. He was also one of the smartest signal caller's in the Conference.
He knew just what to do and when to do it. Jack was picked on the All-Conference first
team and we think he rates with the best of them. This is Jack's last year and we wish him
the best of luck. Goodbye, Jack!
ROGER VVELLS-Tackle-Roger played tackle this year. He was a great blocker on
offense as well as on defense. Opponents seldom tried any plays over Wells because he
would have them pilled up before they got to the line of scrimmage. Roger is a senior and
will be greatly missed.
GLENN VVILSON--Center--This year was Glenn's first year to play center on the
varsity team. He had played end for three years, but this year Bert was in great need of a
center. So mentor Dancey put Wilson at the center spot. He seldom made a bad play and
was a very hard tackler at end position on defense. Glenn was selected as Center on the
N. E. C. second team. Glenn is a senior and his shoes will be hard to fill next year.
BOB BROVVN-Guard-This was Bob's second year on the varsity. Bob was Bert's
utility man for the line. He played both guard and tackle. Bob was a good defensive man
and could be called upon when they wanted the line piled upon in defense. Bob is a senior.
GENE "SPIDER" BOYD-End-Gene is to be ranked among the better ends that have
been on Flora teams. He was a fine pass receiver and blocker on offense, but as the season's
scores show Gene had little trouble stopping the opponents on defense. He was a hard
tackler and had an unusual knack of eluding the interference and nailing the runner-Gene
was placed on the All-Star Conference second team. Gene is a senior and will leave Ole
Flora High. Coach Dancey will have a hard time filling Gene's end position. Good luck,
Gene in whatever you try next.
LEON LANE-End-Leon was our lanky second string end this year. He was a good
defensive man, because when he hit them they stayed hit. Leon is a junior and great things
are expected from him next year.
ED CARTER-Quarterback-Ed played part time on the First team. He made a fine
showing while he was in the game. He was a hard charger and a fine pass receiver. He is
just a junior and should be one of the best backs in the N. E. C. next year. Good luck next
'JUNIOR HMOCUSH VVOLF-Guard-"Hocus" is the luckiest man on the first team
because he's the only one back to aid the VVolves to another victorious season. Junior's out-
standing point was defense. The entire squad has little doubt of his tackling ability. He
tackled so hard he often hurt himself but his man very seldom was able to get up very
quickly after he hit him. His offense play was tops also, he carried the ball and was good
for a gain whenever called upon. Junior made the first All-Star Conference team at guard.
Good luck Hocus and let's really go next year.
REX BRISCOE-Manager-Rex was a very good manager. He was always around
when he was needed. He will probably be the football manager next year as he is just a
1946 Footbaff Games
MT. VERNON 6-FLORA 0
The Flora NX'olves dropped their opening game of the '46 season to the Mt. Vernon
Rams by a score of 6-U. Flora held the Rams on tho kick-off and it looked as if they were go-
ing to score in the early part of the game, marching from the 40 yard stripe to the 9, where
they were held. This was the only point in the first half. In the second half, Mt. Vernon
got their chance to score when Bumpus, half-back went off tackle for a nice run putting
them on the 3 yard mark, after Z plays Mt. Vernon scored. The extra point failed and Mt.
Vernon lead 6-0. The VVolves came back and made another drive that put them on the 4
yard line when they had to give up the ball with seconds to play, Mt. Vernon punted and
the XYolves took to the air only too late, the game was over. Dold, Schroeder and Hender-
son, veteran backs from last year's N. Ii. C. Champs, showed good running at intervals
throughout the game. As this game was not a conference tilt the VX'olves only got a marred
record and some valuable experience for the coming conference games. The next game is
with a team rated even more powered than the Mt. Vernon Rams, the Centralia Orphans.
Let's upset 'em NYolves.
FLORA 27-CENTRALI A 12
Bert Daneey's 20th edition of the Flora XNolves really showed up in their second game
as they soundly trounced the Centralia Orphans by a Z7-12 count. The Flora line came
through with plenty of blocking on offense. The VVolves baekfield showed plenty of ability
in this game as Melvin Dold, .lack Henderson and Galen Schroeder did the ball carrying
with Hubert Carroll paving the way. In the first quarter it looked bad for the locals as the
Orphans scored a touchdown before the game was a minute old, but the XYolves came right
back to tally and gain the lead. Again the locals were put on the short end of the score as
Centralia raced 80 yards for their second and final touchdown. The Danceymcn came right
back to score and recapture the lead which they never again relinquished. The Wolv'es
dominated the play so thoroughly in the third quarter that Centralia failed to get hold of
the pigskin. In the fourth period Coach Trout threw in the towel as he sent in his entire
second team against the now weary Flora offense. The VVolf pack was unable to score
in the fourth period as a heavy fog blanketed the field and bogged down the Flora drive.
The Vlolves showed plenty of improvement in this second encounter and if they can main-
tain this pace they will undoubtedly capture the N. E. C. title.
FLORA 12--SALEM 0
The VVolves journeyed to Salem to play the leaders of the N, E. C. Salem was con-
sidered a strong contender for the conference Championship and many thought whoever
won this game would be champs even though the season had only begun. Salem had already
won two N. E. C. games from Lawrenceville and Bridgeport, and was intending to add an-
other to her list. In the first half Flora received the kick-off and made a march goalward
never to be faltered, a hard running backfield behind a hard charging line pushed the Salem
eleven back 70 yards, to pay dirt with Dold carrying it across for the touchdown. Just be-
fore the half Salem put on a drive to the Flora one yard line, where they were held for
downs. Flora then took the ball and stalled with line plays till the half. The second half saw
a harder charging Flora line and a weakening Salem line. Flora kicked off and held the
Wildcats on downs, then started marching again. The longest runs of the game were reeled
off by Dold and Henderson each with 15 yardsg Flora failed on both. Salem became des-
perate in the final minutes of the game and began passing, completing 4 short ones. Hooks
the star-back of Salem gained much respect from the Flora team as he was capable of
breaking loose any time and frequently making nice gains. A record attendance estimated
over 4,000 was on hand at this game. The team is getting more followers each game.

FLORA 32--MT. CARMEL 0
The Flora Xkiolves made their second appearance on the home gridiron lvy defeating
the Mt. Carmel Aces 32-0 in their second Conference game. The Xtolves on offense as well
as on defense worked like a machine, all charging with the snap of the ball. The perform-
ances of Dold, Henderson, Schroeder and Carroll were spectacular. Henderson and Schroe-
der carried the mail around the ends and Dold smashed the line with Carroll paving the
way. Flora's line was like a lirick wall stopping all threats of little Holcomb and the Aces.
This was the Wiolves' second N. E. C. win of the year. The Xkiolyes will he playing as hard
as they can to retain their Conference Title which they won last year. The 'XYolyes' next
foe is the l,awrenceyille Indians.
FLORA 38 ---1"AIRl"lELD 0
The XYolves continued their wining play hy running over a fairly strong Fairfield team
38 to 0. The NYolyes kicked off 'to the Mules who returned the hall to the 38 yard line
where they were forced to punt. Dold liroke loose on the first play for a 91 yard touch-
down, Henderson conyerted. The Mules were held for downs and punted out of danger

game until Boyd recovered a Flora punt on Fair5eld's 20. After 3 plays Dold slammed
across from the 3 yard line. The extra point was no good. The Vvolves kicked to the 40 where
Fairheld started their drive which went to the XVolves' 21 as the half ended, Score 19 to 0.
Faritield received the kick-off for the fourth time of the game. Flora held them for downs
and took over on the 3 yard line after a 15 yard penalty. Dold tore around left end for
a touchdown. The extra point failed again. Dold kicked to a tiring Fairfield team and after
moving to a 27 yard gain, was held for downs and Flora took over as the quarter ended.
The next score came as Dold passed to Henderson for a 54 yard gain and Dold scored
from the three. The extra point was no good. The next and final tally came in the closing
minute of play as Henderson skirted the right end behind expert blocking for a 62 yard
touchdown. Dold converted making the score 38 to 0. The Flora subs then took over and
held the Mules after a 13 yard gain. The VVolves are hoping for a Conference Title without
being scored on.
FLORA 60-BRIDGEPORT 0
The Vvolves' winning streak went to 7 wins by running wild over the Bridgeport Bull-
dogs. The subs played the most of the last half and also ran loose scoring 4 of the 9 touch-
downs. In the first quarter the Bulldogs kicked off. Dold made the first touchdown and
kicked for the extra point. Dold kicked off and recovered his OVV11 kick, Henderson took
quick advantage of this as he flashed around right end for a 6 pointer and on the next play
made the extra point. The Bulldogs began to pass but quickly found the VVolves secondary
were alert as ,lack Henderson intercepted a pass which had bounced off Dold's hands. Dold
bowled over from the 13 and Carroll converted, making the score 21-0. After a long kick
Paqe Fortx lwo
.nto the end zone the Bulldogs intercepted a pass, but on the second play they fumbled and
the VVolves recovered. Dold slammed over for the 4th six pointer. Henderson converted.
Score Z8-0. The reserves then took over and held the Bulldogs to the middle of the field
as the half ended. The second half was nearly a repetition of the first. Then the reserves
took over and the scoring went on just the same with Frost racing 30 yards around left
end to the 5. Derl Guhl raced over for the score. The Wolves kicked off and again the
VVolves set up an air tight defense and the Bulldogs kicked and Guhl took it on the 45 and
went all the way for the longest run of the night. Other touchdowns were by Frost from
the 39 and Mitchell scored a 30 yard drive, Cummins made an extra point on a pass. This
was the last home game for Gene Boyd, Bob Blackburn, Pete Middleton, Glenn VVilson,
Roger VVells, Don Hargrave, Mert Carroll, jack Henderson, Red Schroeder and Melvin
FLORA 41-CARMI 0
The Flora WVolves made a good showing for the N. E. C. Nov. l when they defeated
a strong Carmi team 41 to 0. The game was played on an extremely muddy and wet field.
This also gave the VVolves a chance to prove they were as good on a wet field as a dry
one. The game started with the VVolves kicking off to the Bulldogsg after a few plays Carmi
was forced to punt. Flora then took the ball on a goalward march. Dold climaxed the march
by smashing over right tackle for the score and Henderson skirted around right end for
the extra point. Until the half it was all Flora's. Carmi just couldn't gain against the "stone-
wall" defense put up by the Flora line. Flora scored twice before the half-time whistle. Dold
scored with the extra point by Henderson. Carmi came back strong after the half and re-
turned Dold's kick-off 60 yards to the Flora 18 yard line. Flora turned back this attack
and took the ball and started on another goalward march. After that it was all Flora's
again. Dold scored three times more before the final whistle and the extra points by Car-
roll and Schrooeder made the total -ll for Flora, 0 for Carmi.
FLORA 55---OLNEY 0
The Flora VVolves mauled a good Olney Tiger team Friday night by a big margin of
55-0. The Wolves started right off by taking the ball on the Z1 yard mark with Dold making
the touchdown and kicking the extra point. The next touchdown came when Dold recovered
on the Olney 27 and seven plays later went over for the second touchdown and Henderson
plunged over for the extra point. The third touchdown came as a result of a 24 yard pass
from Dold to Henderson, and then Henderson went over for the extra point. The fourth
tally came as Dold entered the promised land from the 3 yard marker. Flora's fifth touch-
down came when "Red" Schroeder intercepted an Olney pass and scampered 29 yards for
the tally. Boyd scored a pass for the 34th point. Three plays later Gene Boyd recovered a
Tiger fumble, but this time Olney held the hard charging Flora team. Flora's next talley
came when Dold passed to Schroeder, for the remaining 47 yards. Henderson skirted the
left side of the line for the extra point. Three plays later Bob Blackburn fell on an Olney
fumble behind the goal line for 6 points and Henderson passed to Dold for the 48th point.
The Wolves needed one more touchdown to get over 300 points for the season. This touch-
down came when Dold passed to Boyd to climax a 70 yard march. Henderson then smashed
over for point 55. The Flora defense was tight against the Tigers and held them to a yard-
age of minus Z. This was the final game for Boyd, Hargrave, Wilson, Brown, Blackburn,
Middleton, VVells, Carroll, Schroeder, Henderson, and Dold. They did a swell job and will
be missed badly next year,

BERT DANCEY-Coach-Bert finished another successful basketball season
as coach. This made the second appearance of the Flora VVolves in the Sweet
16 in the last 3 years that Bert Dancey has been coach. During his 3 years as
coach Bert has won 2 sectional championships and 3 regional championships.
Before the start of every game and at the half he would say go get 'em boys,
iight them, be relaxed and calm. Bert has a fine way with the boys.
DICK CONLEY-Assistant Coach--"Dick as he is commonly called by all who
know him was in no way a small part of the Flora basketball team's success.
He worked faithfully with his freshmen, hoping to make them players of the
future. He helps with the varsity and his keen scouting eye helped plenty
in preparing for future opponents,
MELYIN DOLD-''IOHNU-Co-captain-Center-Melvin was the highest scor-
er of the teamg he was a line rebounder and an excellent shot. Melvin's high
game in point making was Mt. Carmel when he collected 29 points. There
was no doubt that Melvin was the most outstanding player in the North Egyp-
tian Conference, as he lead in scoring. Melvinls basketball career may have
just started as Melvin is going on to school and we know he'll make good.
Melvin will be missed greatly by the Flora school and fans as well.
AI.-XCK HENDERSON--Co-captain-.lack was a guard of the 1947 edition of
the VVolves. He was sure a scrapperg one of the best dribblers, guards, and
shiftiest player in the conference. jack was an exceptionally good shot from
the floor, from any position. Jack is a senior.
GALEN SCHRQEDER "RED"-ForwardfARed played regular forward dur-
ing the season. He was a good shot and a good rebounder. Red was a he-rd
fighter. This is Redls last year and we all wish him good luck.
GLENN VVILSON-'Guard-Forward--Glenn was our 6'3" guard and forward
this year. This was his second year on the first team. He was a very good
rebounder and a shot from the floor. Glenn played his best games during the
tournaments, especially against Collinsville. Glenn is a senior and his shoes
will be very hard to fill next year.
BOB BLACKBURN-Guardm-This year was Bob's second year on the first team
and his best. He was a very good defensive man and a good shot from the
court. He was a consistent ball player. This is his last year for Flora.
GENE BOYD i'SPIDER"-Forward -Spider was one of the tallest men on the
team this year and was a good rebounder. He has been the sixth man on the
squad and has played good ball all the time. Anytime when the team was
playing a tall opponent Gene was always ready to do his part and do it well.
Gene is a senior.

t.owELL DEVVHlRS'l'f'Forwatd-Lowell started the season slow but by mid-
season worked himself into good shape. Hy the time the season was well un-
der way Dewhirst could always be counted on as a valuable replacement. He
was one of the most valuable subs Flora had as he always came through in
the pincher. He will be tough to replace next year.
ROGER XNELL-S-Center-Roger had bad luck during the year as he missed
part of the final season and the tournaments. VVhen called upon he gave a
good account of himself. He is a senior and will be missed very much next
PETE MIDDLETON--Manager-One of the most important men on the squad
was the manager. Hihen anything was to be done Pete could be trusted to
do it. He has been manager for the last two years, and his work was ap-
preciated by all.
HUBERT CARROLL "1lERTi'-Ouard---This was Klert's first year on the first
ten and he played fine ball whenever called on. 1Iert's long shots gave many
thrills as his most spectacular shot was at Effingham when he shot from be-
yond the half line and added two more points to the count in the last play-
ing time. Mert will be greatly missed as a morale builder and a fine basket-
ball player as this is Mert's senior year-Good luck to you, Klert.
IR. VVOLF-Forward-fjr. played in the second team games and was a sub For
the first team. He was a very good shot and has great promise to be a good
forward. He has another year, so good luck, -lr.
LEON LANE-dCenter--Leon played as a sub most of this year in the curtain
raiser. Leon has enough height and should make a good player next year.
lf he keeps up his steady improvement he should develop into one of the
N.E.C.'s top centers.
RALEIGH QUACKENl'3l.7SH--Forward--Raleigh played regular with the jun-
ior five which won 19 games while losing 3. This was a fine record for a
junior team. Raleigh's size and all around ability will be a great help to lflora

ferent from the first, as it ended with a sfrore of 19 to 15. The XYolves eame hack the see-

FLORA 20--BRIDGEPGRT 11
Coach "Doc" Hunsacker came back to Flora via the opponent route. Bridgeport took
the lead early on a free throw. They played an entirely different brand of ball than the
Flora team encountered this season. Everytime they got their hands on the ball they
went into a stalling offense, until they got a clear shotg this accounted for such a low score.
The score by quarters was 4-2, in favor of Bridgeport, at the half they still held an 8-
7 lead. At the end of the third quarter Flora was still behind 11-10. The score was knotted
up at 11-11 then Flora got another free throw to pull ahead 12-11. This was the breaking
point of the game. VVith 45 seconds to play Flora scored 8 points to win 20-11. This was
one of the lowest scores ever to be recorded in the "New Gym," since its dedication when

The game with F1ora's county cousins the Wolves, started off very slowly with the
Danceymen having trouble in breaking through Clay City's strong zone defense. The score
at the first quarter showed Flora ahead by one point, 7-6. Playing nearly the same type of
ball in the second quarter, the half-time score read Flora 13 Clay City 10. After intermis-
sion discussions with Coach Dancey the VVolves came out strong in the third quarter
spreading the zone defense and scoring 18 points while holding Clay City to 4. They then
went to on win 4-4-25. Dold again was high scorer of the evening with 18 points. The Flora
seconds won a thriller from Clay City seconds by a score of 63-16.
FLORA 36-FAIRFIELD 30
The Wolves ran their conference wins to nine by defeating the Fairfield Mules. The
NVolves opened up as Henderson put in 3 straight held goals, and before the quarter ended
the Wolves were on top 8 to 2. The second quarter was a bad one as the Mules forged ahead
16 to 13. The Mules kick softened somewhat in the third and fourth quarters which gave
the VVolves a chance to slip in for the kill and run off with a 6 point victory 36 to 30. Dold
was high scorer with 20 points. Henderson collected 9 and Schroeder 4.
FLORA 39--NOBLE 30
The Flora VVolves redeemed themselves by smacking the Noble VVildcats on their own
hardwood 39 to 30. The Flora five started slow and the VVildcats led for the first haif. The
locals rallied in the last half and went on to win their 18th victory. This moved the Dancey

Flora aggregation as they were humiliated by Noble on their own fioor 31 to 30.
LAVVRENCEVILLE 39-FLORA 33
The Flora Wolves lost a thrilling game to the Lawrenceville indians 39 to 33. Although

score was always close. The lndians led at the end of the first quarter 12 to 9. The Wolves
fought back and at the end of the second quarter the score was tied 17 to 17. Both teams
battled on even terms and the third period ended 29 to 24 in favor of Lawrenceville. ln the
final period the Indians started on a warpath and out-scored the Wolves 10 to 6 to win a
thrilling game by a score of 39 to 33.
PARIS 38-FLORA 31
A powerful Paris team rated No. 1 in state, handed the Wolves their final defeat of the
regular season. Paris took an early lead and held a 9 to 3 edge at the end of the first
quarter. It seemed as though the VVo1ves were doomed to a bad defeat because at the end
of the half Paris lead 24 to 13. Playing before a capacity crowd the VVolves began to show
a little more fight in the last two quarters to pull up within 4 points of the Tigers, the score
reading .28-24 at the end of the 3rd quarter. At this point the Paris Tigers showed what
made them a great team by settling down to a deliberate style of ball and staving off a hard
fighting attack of the VVolves. The star center of Paris, Bob Owens, had control of the re-
bounds under both boards much of the time and was responsible for more than his share
of the Paris points. He lead the Paris scoring with 11 points. Scoring honors for Flora

So that the class of 1947 may long be remembered, we wish to print our his-
tory so that none may overlook us. This may not seem important now, but as the
years pass, you will lind it a source of pleasure to look back upon your school
days. This history is written for the sole purpose of remembering the class of '47
as Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and finally Seniors. Good luck to the class of
1947 and God bless all of you!
ln September, 1943, we entered the H.S.T.H.S. as freshmen. For the first
few days we never seemed to get in the right class at the right time but that was
soon overcome. At the class election Melvin Dold was elected president, Hubert
Carroll-vice-president, Ruth McLaughlin-- treasurer, Betty Chaney-secretary.
Mrs. Given and Mr. Brock were chosen as sponsors. Class activities consisted of
a hay ride to the park for a wiener roast the first semester. That ended our ac-
tivities for a while as we tore down some haystacks and knocked over a fireplace.
During the second semester, however, we had a party in the old gym and that did
end our activities because of a broken window pane.
Hack to school again in September, 1944. lt wasn't nearly so bad though as
we had a whole year's experience. This year we elected Bob Blackburngpresi-
sident, Jeannine Hout--vice-president, Marion Middleton-secretary, Glenn XYil-
son-treasurer. Miss Pixley and Mr. Dancey were chosen as our sponsors. VW
were still paying for our mischief of the previous year because we had no class
activities. VVe hoped to do much better our Junior year.
VVe came back to school on September 4 for our Junior year. Officers elected
at the class meeting were Melvin Dold-president, Mary Milner-vice-president.
Jack Henderson-secretary, Lowell Dewhirst-treasurer. Mrs. VVatson and Miss
Mullinax were chosen as sponsors. On November 16 we presented the Junior
class play, "Here Comes Charlie," which was a huge success. One bingo party
was held in the second semester. The annual Junior-Senior dinner-dance was
held May 10. The gym was decorated with a large circus tent and pictures of
circus animals for the occasion. A few days later- -21 to be exact grade cards were
given out, concluding our Junior year.
Back to school again after 3 months vaaction. This was our last year, to the
relief of some and the distress of others. The Senior class met and elected its
officers for the year. Mary Milner--president, Al VVinka-vice-president, Marion
Middletonw-secretary and Galen Schroeder-treasurer. Mrs. Duff and Mr. Con-
ley were chosen as our sponsors. In October we had a class party, we met at the
school, went on a scavenger hunt and then returned to the school gym for danc-
ing and refreshments. Several awards were given to members of the Senior Class
throughout the year. Mary Miller was awarded the D.A.R. pin and certificate by
the Daughters of the American Revolution for good citizenship and leadership.
Four senior members of the football squad were given honorary posts on the con-
ference all-star team. They were: Jack Henderson, Melvin Dold, Don Hargrave.
and Galen Schroeder. Gene Boyd, Hob Blackburn, Glenn VVilson, and Hubert Car-
roll were also given honorable mention. Ruth McLaughlin, Jeannine Hout and
Ramona Hamilton are good members of our cheering squad this year. During
the last month of school we were quite busy with the Junior-Senior Dinner-
Dance, the Senior picnic at the park, Class night, Baccalaureate and Commence-
ment which we had looked forward to for four long years.

FLORA 50--NEQGA 25
The VVolves won their first game at Effingham by defeating the Neoga five. The Flora
Quintet led as the quarter ended 18 to 4. ln the second quarter the Neoga boys shifted their
defense and the locals found it harder to work the ball in and were out-scored 10 to 6.
The half-time score was 24 to 14. The third and fourth quarters were a repetition of the
first two and the XYolves won easily 50 to 25. Dold lead the scoring honors with 26 points.
FLORA 554-TGLEDO 19
The Flora VVolves rambled to their second tournament victory when they smashed
Toledo 55-19. The Toledo five were red hot the first period and stayed in with the locals
5-5. ln the second stanza the 'Wolves completely shackled the Toledo team holding them
scoreless and scoring with ease. By the half the NVolves led 22 to 5. it was 4 minutes in
the third period before Toledo again tallied Ct point. They finally broke the ice and made S
points. The Flora seconds finished the game playing the last quarter, which turned into a
rough and tumble atiair with plenty of fouls on each team in the final period. Their victory
entitled Flora to play in the finals against Etiingham,
FLORA 47--EFFINGHAM 32 A
The Flora XYolves won the regional tournament by a score of 47 to 32. lt was a hard
fought game with Effingham always a threat. The l.Volves had a hard time the first half as
they had a slim 17 to 14 lead at the end of the 2nd period. The VVolves pulled away in the
third period and stayed so the rest of the game. The Flora reserves came in with about
ZW minutes to play. The XYolves did a good job in this tournament and we hope they do
as well in the Sectional.
IILORA 38-LAXNVRENCEVILLE 36
The Flora VX'olves showed what a hard fighting team could do by downing the Law-
renceville lndians in the first round of the Sectional tourney. The Indians were favored to
win but the VVolves jumped to an early lead by out-playing and out-rebounding the Indians.
The first quarter ended with Flora leading 9-4. The second quarter was a different story as
the Indians came back with a 15 point rally. It seemed as though they couldn't miss a shot
and the half time score read Flora 20 Lawrenceville 19. Coming out the second half the
XYolves playing desperate ball built up their lead to 10 points and were leading 32 to 22 at
the end of the 3rd quarter Starting the 4th quarter Glenn Wilson fouled out, this was
Glenn's night he had played the best ball of his career when it was most needed. Our lead
began to dwindle and for the first time in the game Lawrenceville went ahead 33 to 32 but
Blackburn put Flora into its final lead 34-33. Flora then staved off a final Lawrenceville at-
tack to win 38 to 36 in one of the most consistent ball games of this season. Dold topped
Flora scoring honors with 13, VVilson had 8, Schroeder 7, Henderson 7, and Blackburn 3.
Centers, a Lawrenceville guard lead the scoring of the game with 14 points, Summers and
Shidler each 9-7 respectively.
FLORA 49--MT. CARMEL 28
The Flora Wolves won the right to represent this section in the State finals at Cham-
paign when they defeated an improved Kit. Carmel team 49 to 28. The VVolves were never in
much trouble in the game as they took a 10 to 4 lead the first quarter and continued to widen
this margin to 19 to 6 at the end of the half. The final period was just like the others and the
VVolves finally won out 49 to 28. Dold xx as high scorer with 21 points. followed by Hender-
son with 11. The entire squad played excellent ball through the tournaments and let's hope
they continue this good work.
COLLAINSVILLE 40--FLQRA 37
The sixth entry from Flora into the sweet sixteen got a bad case of tournament jitters
dropping a very dull game to Collinsville 48 to 37. The VVolves were hopeless as stage fright
never let them get going. In the tirst period the Kahoks opened with a volley of good shots
and the locals never recovered.
