It was a very warm' and wet evening. Such was the night that the Class of '43
came into being. That night was June 8, 1939.
When we were freshmen, we had many activities. Probably the two that will
stay in all our minds the longest are the play, 'lHans Brinker," and our trip- to the
"New York World's Fair." This trip was well liked by everyone. With our play we
made enough to pay for our admission into the Fair, a sight-seeing tour, our transpor-
tation, and each student received seventy cents as spending money.
We will cherish all the memories of this year, for everyone was happy-a. person
couldnlt be otherwise with the splendid leadership we had.
1940- 1 941
ln September, we entered the Bordentown High School with plans for a year
full of activities. We started out with 'a picnic at Browns Mills. That night every-
one rode home filled to the brim with hot dogs and soda pop.
Our next activity was our first formal dance, the Sophomore Hop. The year
ended with a trip to Philadelphia. We visited the Franklin Institute, the Art Gal-
lery, the Aquarium, and last., but not the least, the Zoo, where everyone met some
long lost friends. And so school closed for the year.
Our Junior year was comparatively light in activities. The highlight of the sea-
son was the Junior Prom with Kip Harbourt and his orchestra. doing the musical
honors. The ball room decorations followed a patriotic theme. Large silver V's were
placed conspicuously about on the walls, and above the bandstand streamers of red,
white, and blue were strung from end to end.
We relinquished the traditional trip to Valley Forge because of the war and
lack of transportation facilities.
The inactivity of this school year' was due, largely, to the destructive and disas-
trous fire of B. H. S., which occurred on January 9, 1942.
1942- 1 943
Seniors at last! And in our own high school, Florence Township High! We are
still a little awed by the realization of the fact that Wye are taking our last steps in
our high school career. We are quite proud to be the Hrst graduating class of Florence
High School, and haver fond memories of our activities in our last year. At our first
class meeting we elected oflicers, who we thought would best fill the office to which
they were elected. Of course, we needed money for the various activities we were to
participate in this year and in order to raise this money we held weekly dances. These
really were very splendid social events and everyone, including the teachers who Zlt-
tended, had fun and enjoyed themselves immensely.
The next event which took place was our senior ball. This was a semi-formal
affair and the auditorium was decorated beautifully for the occasion. The decorations
were in our class colors, blue and white. The senior ball will long be rememibered
because we seniors feel that it was the best affair of the year.
Next on our "Hit Parade" was our senior play. The play comfmittee selected
a three-act comedy, "Nothing But the Truth," which was presented on January 6th
and 7th, This was a successful production due to the efforts of Doctor Moreland, the
director the cast andi also the- teachers whoi helped.

A Trip Into the Future
One lovely night in early spring, I was feeling rather drowsy when suddenly a
lovely creature appeared before me. She spoke, and her voice was like silver bells,
"I have come to take you for a trip into the future. Arise and follow me."
I don't know horw I got there, but suddenly I found mfys-elf in a busy and beautiful
town in California. It was Hollywood. We saw a large studio, "G-F-D," CGoodwin
F. Donnellyj. They were casting a revival ofthe picture, "Nothing But the Truth,"
starring two new brilliant stars, Muriel Sweetman and Ralph Foulks. While there,
we saw the studio's new' fashion designer, Viola Buhan, with her aide, Thelma Kelvy.
Running across the lot and yelling for quiet was the chief electrician, Louis Burr, with
John Cook on the sound track, and Baird Barry as photographer. Over on the side
was hflargherita Agostinelli, that famous fun-loving, party thrower, who invited us
out to a famous night club. Before we left, however, Goody the director, invited us
into his private office, where we saw Olga Pfeiffer as his private secretary. He' told
us about his new art directors, Ruth Carlson and Kathryn Butler, who were working
on some scenery for a forthcoming production.
We decided to visit a concert being held for charity. At the concert we heard
the famous pianist, Miss Nolah Sutphin, also Julius Ilku, the noted violinist. John
CDukel Ellington, a we-ll-kno-w'n baritone, sang a selection from a new opera, "La
Florencefl written by that great composer, Claire Dougherty. She is now composing
an opera centering around a 'ballad that she had written in senior English class.
We hailed a cab to go to the night club for- our promised party. The driver
was a chap by the name of John Tinnickg quite an interesting and sociable fellow.
But, alas! On our way, our driver saw a group of girls, Mary Bago, Betty Sweeney
and Betty Moffet, who were in town to make a picture concerned with their pro-
fession, nursing, walking up the street. As he turned to watch them, we ran into the
back of a car containing some women officers, among them was a WAVIE captain,
Betty Ford, a WAAC officer, Violet Fischer, and a Marine Commander, Ruth
McCue. As those in the other car were quite badly shaken-up, we sent for an ambu-
lance. When it arrived, it wasp driven by nurse Anna Duffy, with another nurse,
Florence Robotin, and the famous surgeon, Basil Yurcisin. As we had sustained no
serious injury, we continued to the club, the Hi-Hat, owned by Arnold Wilson and
James P-ennacchi. They were featuring the Top Hatters band, the best band of the
year, with their vocalist, La Verne Hulehan. The arrangements for the band were
by Harold De La Roi, accordion solo by llildred Lambert. At a nearby table, we saw
VV'illiam Gourovitch, the Hollywood gossip columnist. He came over to us, and
mentionedl that they had just got a new editor, and was he a slave-driver! When
asked who it was, he told us it was Edward Trainor. Bill said that he was sorry but
he had to rush off to interview a group of secretaries in town, who were trying to put
through new methods in office management. He- told' us some of them: Barbara Ben-
net, Mary Bombelli, Eileen Jones, Catherine Clyde, Nancy Ciryan, Venona Lee and
Clara Matlack. They had come to put their ideas- into a picture, the-reby advertising
their improvements. After Bill had left, we admired the murals on the walls. Won-
d-ering who had paintedl them, we called the head waiter, who turned out to be
Matthew' Sparta. Matt said that Evelyn Pley had done the murals, and that she was,
at present, working with Carl Frappolli, the advertising tycoon. Finally, we left the
Hi-Hat and went to our hotel.
Rising early the following morning, we decided to visit the school where the
young actors and actresses were taught. At the office we met Sarah Griffith, the school
secretary, who took us into see the superintendent, Douglas Anderson. He only had
time to show us part of the school, so we attended the high school section. In modern
home economic surroundings, the teacher, Ruth Eells, was happy and glad to see us.
As we had little time, we- decided just to peek into the rooms. VVe saw Helen Papp
as a shorthand teacher, George Hathazi as a mathematic instructor, Jennie Fidati as
English teacher, Clayton Durham as history, and Lola Camp as physical education
instructor for the girls.
After we left the school, we went shopping. YVe stopped at a milliner's. to see
what the latest was in hat styles. There we met the designers and proprietors, An-
nette Othmer and Beatrice Berryann. We selected a. hat and left for a dress shoppe
up the street. The salesladies, who had also designedl some dresses, were none other
than lilable Johnson and Jean Lower.

Florence High started its first season of basketball with but two experienced
lads, VValt 1Vargo and Jule llku. lr was not a too good season according to games
Won. But according to the closeness of the scores of the games, our boys showed they
had plenty of zip. Leading this array were 1Valt 1Vargo with 206 points and Jule
llku with 101. All the fellows received "Vs" and only two fellows are not expected
back next year, Jule llku and lid Trainor. VVe won four games and lost thirteen.
The jayvees, under the guidance of joe Pasqualine, had truly a spectacular
season, winning 9 out of 13 games. Seniors not expected back are Doug Anderson and
Louis Burr, who is already in the Coast Guards.
Two of the upsets of the year came when the Alayvees were victorious over the
Varsity, 54--113 and when the faculty conquered the football team, 31-2-lf.
