With, oh, so many windows that let in lots of light.
The rooms are large and pleasant, and there are really spacious hall
That echo with the memories of ea '

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.

"Follies of lfJ56" the theatre inarque reads. 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
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
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
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. We find him flirting with a ravishing
redhead. He pauses long enough to tell us that Martin Ufford is now a contractor.1n.Los Angeles.
Leaving Jack enjoying himself immensely, we continue merrily on our way, tripping the light

OCK THAT KlClK
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.

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
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

Another loss to the Gophers was

position of tackle. He filled in

the state. All around triple

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
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
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.
