CAYWOOD Superintendent ANNUAL LETTER TO THE STUDENTS So it is Commencement time again! All honor to what you have accomplished. The last four years have been trying ones, but now the tired world looks forward to a renaissance of Peace, Happiness, and Prosperity, the like of which the World has never known. Despite untold odds we have managed to come through this year with banners flying, have maintained our scholastic standing, increased our enrollment, instilled a new sense of pride in endeavor and achievement, and have developed a fine school spirit. All of this has been because of the cooperation and untiring efforts of faculty and students alike, and for this spirit I am deeply appreciative. The Board of Education and the Faculty have and will always have your interests at heart, and your success is only a reflection of their willingness to help you to think clearly, to reason fairly, and to learn well the courses that will help you in the great new tomorrow which is your heritage.

The dazzling, gorgeous creatures that dance before our eyes are Ken s KUflGSl,, those fabulous showgirls selected and coached by Kenneth Bonner. We rush backstage, to congratulate Ken on his success, and whom should we see but Rosalie Whitlow who as vocalist on the "Hour of Charmu. With much reluctance we depart from the theatre explaining that we have an appointment the next morning with Johnny Felix, the matinee idol. We arrive bright and early at Johnny's, only to learn that he has not returned from a personal appearance tour. However. we have a most enjoyable chat with Alene White, Johnny's secretary, whose duties consist mainly of answering his fan mail and mimeographing his love letters. As we walk up Fifth Avenue, we notice some stunning dresses in a shop window. Upon inquiry, we find that these are designed by the rising young designer, Clara Ashcraft, and are modeled by two of New York's loveliest mannequins, Carolyn Ortega and Rosa Padilla. Leaving the shop, we meet Faye Moore. Faye is a missionary and has just returned from Africa where she has been persuading the natives to wear more clothes. We invite her to have lunch with us. Deciding upon the Cozy Tea Room owned by Iris Bonner, we enter this charming establishment. A mysterious creature in a turbin tells our fortunes and with surprise we realize that it is Wini Brown. Wini informs us that June Hunt, who is now a very successful commercial artist, often lunches here. We bid Faye a fond adieu and upon arriving at our apartment, turn on the radio. We become engrossed in the nip and tuck battle between the two professional football teams of Chicago and Boston. Ruben Jimenez wins the game for the Bears by running sixty yards for a touchdown, the final score being 7-0. The evening paper arrives and we note that Edward Pratt has been chosen as the man having the world's best physique. The paper states that Mr. Pratt is planning to make his methods of body building available to the public in the form of five easy lessons, Turning to the book review section, we read that Mildred Wade, author of "The Capture and Control of Wolves", has been chosen the woman of the week. Mildred's picture, taken by that eminent, young photographer, Jimmy Avenenti, accompanies the article. The next morning we rise earlier than usual, pack, and catch the Westbound Limited. It is with much amazement that we discover Emolina Van Haren to be on the same train. Emo tells us that she is a trick rider and is returning to Florence after taking part in the Madison Square Garden Rodeo. - Telling Emo that we will see her again in Florence, we get off the train at Phoenix, procure a car and go forth to see the sights. Seeing a large building and wondering what its purpose is, we steal stealthily inside and find that it is Louis Espinoza's wholesale house. We are delighted to see George Gutierrez, who is busily securing supplies for his grocery store in Florence. As March 15 is approaching, we have vague misgivings about our income tax report and, therefore, go to see Donald Taylor, the head of a government agency, who is ably assisted by Donna Belle Cole. Donald tells us that Alma Wadkins is the founder of Miss Wadkins' Select School for Secretaries and that her secretaries Hhave everything? Attracted by the sign "We Fix Your Car -- And How" we decide to have a new carburetor installed in our automobile. Who should we see filling up gas tanks but Angie Rodriguez. She owns a string of filling stations throughout the Southwest, but still enjoys taking an active part in fixing cars. Angie tells us that Vivian Dickinson is in charge of an orphans' home and that all the children adore her. After a new carburetor has been installed, we drive to Florence. Upon our arrival, we hear that Sarah Flores, the kindergarten teacher, has just had an emergency appendcctomy. We go to see Sarah and find that Eda Gay is the superintendent of nurses and is engaged to marry a prominent young doctor. It is a lovely evening so we decide to drive out to Gildardo Padilla's ranch. Mrs. Padilla, the former Nancy Owens, is worried about Junior's Hstrepl' throat. She tells us that Raymond Argel and Teresa Martinez are married and have a ranch of their own. Raymond is punching cows - and pinching calves. The next morning finds us inspecting the sign 'tAlibis Made To Ordern, Our curiosity thoroughly aroused, we enter and find Nancy Fulbright, who is now a lawyer, sitting placidly behind a flat-top desk. Nancy informs us that George Taylor QYes! ! l l D is now professor of English at the University of Arizona. Next we fall upon the mayor of the town of Florence, the honorable Walt-er Brunenkant. Walter tells us that James Dunn has invented a sensational new cotton-picking machine operated by atomic power. lt is being financed by Hallie McCutehan, the great industrialist. We learn that Jack Napper, an aeronautical engineer whose office is conveniently locathedat Hollywood and Vine, is in town and we are anxious to. see him.

OCK THAT KlClK Page Forty-four Starting out fast and furious this year were the Florence Gophers, under the supervision of their new coach, George Ahee. Incidentally, Coach Ahee is from the University of Arizona, where he played guard on the All Conference Team. The Gophers swept through a nine game schedule winning seven and losing two. The team was off to a good start by defeating Amphitheater of Tucson 34-7 in their first game. The Buckeye Hawks came next and were felled to a 39 to 0 'before the onslaught of the rampaging Gophers. The third straight victory came at the expense of the Chandler Wolves who were easily defeated 38 - 0. The next game, the old rivals of Coolidge and Florence battled it out, the Bears were a little too much for the Gophers, upsetting them 13 - 7. With the usual fighting spirit, despite the fact the squad lost two key men through injuries, the Gophers won over Superior 20 - 12, Ago 20 - 12, and Nogales 34 - 20. Climaxing the year, the Florence Gophers went to Ysleta, Texas to engage the powerful Ysleta Indians who were a fast, hard-hitting bunch of players. After a scoreless first half, Ysleta won out 18 - 6. The last game of the season Florence trounced Casa Grande by a score of 33 - 6. PRACTICE PERIOD n Y l N ' Practicing . . Unofficially and Offically W Page Forty-five RAYMOND ARGEL. handicapp- ed with bad shoulders, was the best offensive center on the team. His accuracy as a snapp- er-back made it possible for many of the teams precisely executed plays to develop. For the red and White, WALTER BHUNENKANT played left tackle position in a top-notch way, being dependable, capable, durable. He had as much play- ing time as any one man on the team. LOUIS ESPINOZA, watch- eharm guard, was the best defensive lineman of the whole squad, despite his pint-size stature. Breaking his arm early in the season, he was unable to complete his senior football season, Another loss to the Gophers was GEORGE GUTIERREZ, fullback who was shifted to this position this year from his regular position of tackle. He filled in notably well until being side- lined for the remainder of the Season after receiving an injury in the Superior game. Page Forty-six NIOR STARS bf 5 RUBEN JIMENEZ, '46 team captain and all-conference half- back, was undoubtedly one of the finest school-boy backs in the state. All around triple threat player, running, punting, and passing - - he completed 26 out of 31 passes in one game alone. DON TAYLOR, one of the smallest linemen on the squad, was perhaps the gamest of all. Playing a fine defensive game, he was a capable blocker and High scoring end, GILDARDO PADILLA, proved to be the greatest pass catcher seen in the district. This high school end had size, speed and ability. Teamed up with Jimenez, they were one oi the best passing combinations in the state. Backfieldman, EDDIE PRATT, perhaps the team's finest block- er, played the up-back spot in Very fine fashion. He was a great defensive player and could also run with the ball when called upon. will be missed next year. MESSAGE FROM THE COACH During the past year we have watched Florence Union High School take big strides forward in state athletic circles, just as we have done in the past. Athletics have always been an integral part of school life with definite educational aims and values - - thus it should be at Florence. Athletics should be a total student activity, one in which we participate wholeheartedly, whether on the playing field, in the band, or in the student cheering section. We, at Florence Union High School, possess the qualities so necessary for all-around student participation. I sincerely hope not only to see it continue, but to increase in intensity. Coach George Ahee Page Forty-seven DlS 'l'RlC'l' CHAMPS After a very successful season during which the Gophers won nine and lost two in conference plays, they entered the district basketball tournament with high spirits. Having proven their worth during seasonal encounters, they found Superior an easy mark in their first game of the East Central Conference Tournament, win- ning by a score of 40 to 2l, The next night the Aheemen played Tempe, again winning 38 to 12. The age-old feud between Coolidge, the winners of the upper bracket, and Florence, the winners of the lower bracket, culminated in struggle for the championship. After a nip and tuck battle the ever fighting Gophers won the District Championship by edging Coolidge out by a score of 20 to l7. This automatically gave the Gophers the right to enter the State Basketball Tournament at Tucson where they made a very commendable showing, finally losing to superior ability and height possessed by other teams in the state.
