ORG A NIZATIONS
A YEAR OF OUR LIFE IS RECORDED
The 1973 Saguaro staff prepares and assem-
bles a book that pictorially relays the events of
the school year.
Along with the problems of electing officers,
making write-ups and layouts, taking pictures
and meeting deadlines, there were also other
crises, such as financing the yearbook. The price
charged to students for the annual accounts for
less than half the total price to the staff. The re-
mainder ofthe money has to come from the ad-
vertisements sold and through fund-raising
Most of the work is enjoyable and often excit-
ing, but it is frequently hectic, time is so short,
especially when the staff has to meet the dead-
lines to our publishers. That is the time when
they appreciate the help, understanding, and
cooperation of -administration, teachers, and
As photographer, Mike Pappas takes pictures assigned by
the editors, processes film, and prints and enlarges pictures.
All layouts and copy are checked by Miss Crough, Martha Castro, and
Dora Celaya joined the staff at the end of first quarter to assist
with layout and typing.
The Gopher Staff of 1973, under the supervision of
Mr. David English, strive to benefit the student body at
FHS with a more enjoyable and interesting bi-weekly
paper. They have worked to printthe views and opinions
of the student body as well as to keep students informed
of the latest happenings.
The '73 class had a regular time slot in the curricu-
lum. Their number has increased from last year's 5-
member staff to one of twenty. They planned to have
guest speakers and to take a field trip to inspect the
presses of Casa Grande Dispatch where our local
paper is printed.
Mr. English, along with Editor-in-Chief Ria Padilla,
tried to initiate trading school papers with all the
schools in our Conference and with some of the lead-
ing high school papers inthe state, an osmosis
approach to improving "The Gopher." The Staff entered
competition in the Arizona State Universities J-CON
1973. The Gopher Staff should be complimented on the
fine work they have done this year toward improving
our school paper.

Organized in 1957 as the Library Club,
the group charged their name to the Library
Gophers the following year when they
started working for points to earn a Gopher
head and eventually a Gopher pin through
service to students and faculty. Their pur-
pose is to publicize the library through
news releases through the Gopher, bulletin
boards and book displays and to assist the
librarian whenever possible.
Each year they have toured Arizona
Trade Bindery and libraries at the state
Capitol, at the universities, and at Central
Arizona College. In recent years they have
earned money for -special entertainment
treats to the Ice Capades, the Phoenix Zoo,
and the New London Wax Museum.
Though not so ambitious this year, their
plans, nevertheless,- have included trips

assembly held during football and basket-
ball seasons. They loaded their instruments
into the truck to play fight songs down Main

As one manager to another, Coach said, "You do it."
The Gophers enjoyed a tremendous season in
basketball, winning the B Central championship
with little difficulty. They romped right over their
first four opponents, taking Coolidge 61 to 53,
Payson 80 to 56, Camp Verde 54 to 41, and Marana
58 to 56. In the Christmas Tournament played on
December 20, 21, and 22, the Gophers dropped
Eloy 63 to 56, took their first loss from Marana 65
to 63, squeaked by Chandler 86 to 84 in three
overtimes, and rallied to crush Gilbert 94 to 65.
Second loss of the season was 69 to 64 at the
hands of Phoenix Christian on January 5. The next
five games were winners for the Gophers. They
paced Gilbert 46 to 41, Seton 93 to 51, Hayden 64
to 47, Gilbert again 81 to 63, and Apache Junction
78 to 36. On January 23, Ray managed to edge out
the Gophers 69-67. The team bounced right back
to take an easy victory over Payson 73-41, fol-
lowing this success with six more decisive wins
over Superior 59-51, Camp Verde 75-61, Hayden
73-50, Phoenix Christian 64-52, Seton 84-36,
and Apache Junction 72-53.
A season of 19 wins against 3 losses assured
them the B Central Championship. At the State
Tournament played at Brophy on February 28,
the Gophers were disappointed in their bid for
state honors when they bowed to Mohave by a
score of 59-57 in a hard-fought game.

Sensational is the word to describe the 1972 cross country team. Top man was Ruben
Reyes who placed first in all eleven meets he ran and received 2nd place award at the
state meet. Fred Ramon consistently followed Ruben taking either second or third
place, except at the San Manuel Invitational, a six-way meet, where he placed 6th,
Most improvement during the season was
shown by Greg Celaya who moved up from 12th
position in the first meet to take 4th place in a
two-way meet with Tolleson at the end of the ,t
season. Starting the season as a fast runner,
Ricky Rieffer was among the top five for Florence ' N Q Q F
in the overall season. Terry Ballard was the most
consistent runner for the Gopher team. The JV
runner showing most improvement and most
promise this year was Ricky Reyes who moved
up from 18th place at the beginning of the season
to earn the first place medal in the JV section of I
the San Manuel Invitational.
The team took 9th place at the state meet.
Those team members who will be seniors next
year are working hard for the improvement that Gophers make ready forthe meet.

This year's tennis season opened with cold
weather and wind. There are eight girls out.
Four of them are returning from last spring.
The girls have been using the Ball-Boy tennis

strokes. Later they will also be using the video-
tape to observe their technique and correct their

Although the 1972-73 girls' basketball team were off
l to a slow start, they came back by winning their last five
games. Competing in the Hayden Tournament, they
placed second. On February 10 they participated in the
Ray lnvitationals and came in consolation.
They are a young, inexperienced team that worked
hard to win their games against A, AA, and AAA schools.
During the whole season they competed with only one
B school. Much credit is due the girls for trying their best
to win these A schools.
What the team lacked in height was compensated for
in speed. The two leading scorers were Ana Ortiz with an
average of 13 points a game and Irene Zapata with 9
points a game.
National Honor Society
Florence Chapter of National Honor Society was char-
tered in 1950 and has been an active organization ever
since. Each year ten per cent of the junior class and five
per cent of the senior class is invited to membership.
To be eligible, a student must have completed at least
one year of study at this high school and have achieved
a grade point average of 2.5 or higher. The counselor
prepares a list of all juniors and seniors whose scholastic
achievement entitles them to membership. This list is
sent out to the teachers with instructions for them to
vote only for those students they have worked with in
class or in extracurricular activities. Criteria for selection
are demonstrated qualities of leadership, good charac-
ter, and service to the school. When results of the voting
are made known, the Society sends written invitations
to those who have scored highest.
For the third successive year, the Florence chapter
has extended membership to outstanding sophomores.

among three girls nominated by her
class. The award is given annually by
the Daughters of the American Revo-
lution to a senior girl who has proved
active through her high school years.
Valarie was required to write a theme
about good citizenship stating her ideas
and attitudes concerning the responsi-
bilities of the individual to society. Her
theme will be entered in the state com-
petition against those from other high
schools. A state winner will then be

gether with others.
Our three staters have returned with
valuable experience to share with other
members of student council.
Medallion of Merit
In his junior year Joe Ortiz was
chosen as Outstanding Junior by Ari-
zona State University and awarded the
Bronze Medallion of Merit. This honor
also includes a full year's tuition-paid
scholarship for the first year the re-
cipient attends A.S.U. Joe was chosen
for his outstanding qualities of scholar-
ship, leadership, and citizenship. He
was presented the Medallion at the
Honors Assembly last May by the Hon-
orable T. J. Mahoney.
At Honors Assembly last spring,
Tony Jimenez and Debbie Crawford
were presented with the Outstanding
Junior awards given by the University
Tony has been an honor student for
three years and a member of Florence

since his sophomore year. He has
displayed unusual leadership ability
through the many different offices he
has held in various organizations,
including two years as class president.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT
At the beginning of the second semester, Florence
High School enrolled Consuelo Munoz, ourfirst foreign
Consuelo is a ninetee-year old high school graduate
from Columbia. One of her foremost objectives in
coming to the United States was to learn English,
to see the country, and to learn our customs and way of
life. She is living at the home of the Lester Craigs.
Consuelo is on a full-time schedule and is taking
part in extra-curricular activities such as Spanish
Club and tennis.
The only player to go to tennis camp from Florence
was Kathleen Robinson. She lived on campus at the
University of Arizona for eight days last summer.
At camp students played matches among them-
selves. Kathleen was awarded first place in singles
and was chosen for the State All-Star Team. This
additional training and further competition will prove
a great asset to Kathleen and will give a big boost to
our team during the '73 season.
Rebecca Baker and Joe Ortiz were chosen
as T R A G Y C representatives. These letters
stand for Traffic Representatives of Ari-
zona's Governor's Youth Council. Our rep-
resentatives participated in a two-day
conference at the Westward Ho Hotel in
Phoenix. At the conference they saw films
of young accident victims, learned ways to
prevent accidents by stressing motor vehicle
and pedestrian safety. This year the
TRAGYC committee of Florence High con-
ducted an auto check in the student parking
lot. The process included checking brakes,
brake lights, turn signal lights, parking
lights, backup lights, head lights, horns,
windshield wipers, and mirrors. The com-
mittee has impressed the student body with
the idea of "Safety First."
Betty Crocker Award
Micaela Rieffer took the Betty Crocker
Test in competition with other senior girls
to win the title "Homemaker of Tomorrow"
from FHS. Now she is eligible to compete
at state level with winners from other high
schools through the tate.
Should Micaela be winner of the state
competition, she would receive a generous
scholarship and be eligible to compete at
national level. An additional scholarship is

third year. She has been an outstanding major-
ette for the past four years.
At camp, she has learned the many graceful
movements of a twirler. She has perfected the
art of the many different steps and routines of
skillful baton twirling.
Her exceptional ability has been a great asset
in band performances during the football
season and at special band exercises at rallies

JV cheerleaders Patty Vasquez,
Vicky Padilla, Michele Pappas went
to cheerleading camp at NAU on
the week of July 9-15. The JV's did
exceptionally well, coming home with
five ribbons. One ribbon was for
excellence, three were for outstand-
ing performance, and one was an
honorable mention. The awards are
even more valuable considering that
they had to compete among AAA, AA,
A, and B division squads. On the first
day, they were awarded a "Spirit
Stick" out of all JV's at camp. In
addition, they learned new ideas,
attended classes, and really showed
their school spirit.

This past summer, five members
of the pom pon squad attended
camp. They were Anna Contreras,
Donna Inglish, Rene Exline, Pamela
Cooper, and Donna McWilliams. The
camp was held at Northern Arizona
University. During their stay they
went to five different classes where
they learned new routines and move-
ments. Also they discussed problems
they had in their squad and in their
school performances. Most impor-
tant, they showed their school spirit
and learned much through sharing
ideas with others and helping one
another in solving their problems.
The most difficult part of their pro-
gram was the daily competition
against the other schools.
Victoria Padilla, Michele Pappas, Patricia Vasquez
Our varsity cheerleaders pictured
at right also attended camp at NAU
with the JV's. Cheerleaders faced
heavy competition displaying heir
spirit throughout the week. They at-
tended classes to learn the basic
ideas of cheerleading. They gained
much valuable experience working
with top cheerleaders from all over
te state. On the first day of camp,
the varsity was awarded the only
spirit stick out of fifteen other schools
in AAA, AA, A, and B classification.
This is the second consecutive year
both of our cheerleading squads
have brought home the spirit stick.
Varsity also was rewarded for out-
standing performance with the fol-
lowing ribbons: one superior, three
excellent, and one outstanding.

CROSS COUNTRY HONOR
Ruben Reyes, outstanding athlete in track and cross
country, has knocked down numberous old records
and set new ones. During this year's competition, he
placed second in State and first in every other event,
ending the season with eleven firsts. ln both track and
crosss country he has competed against A, AA, and AAA
schools in addition to Class B's. So far this junior has
won 1 ribbon, 3 bronze, 3 silver, and 12 gold medals
plus 5 trophies.

The Class of '73 has been noted for their tradition-
breaking antics. As freshmen under President Tony
Jimenez, Vice-president Rusty Ortiz, Secretary
Carolyn Lippert, and Treasurer Becky Baker, the
freshmen built a float for the Homecoming Parade
that took second place.
As sophomores, again Tony Jimenez was presi-
dent, Becky Baker, vice-president, Becky Ruiz,
secretary, and Joe Ortiz, treasurer. They domi-
nated all classes by taking first place with their
Homecoming float. They foresaw the need for
money to finance the Prom, so their first real fun-
raising project went under way-the sale of pens
with the football team schedule on them, a profitable
The junior year was by far one of the highlights
of their high school lives, as their main ambition
was to put on a "prom" for the graduating class.
The juniors again broke with tradition by doing away
with the prom and all the formal details. They had,
instead, an informal banquet and dance which many
students agreed was an enjoyable change. The
juniors were lead by Joe Ortiz, president, Dinker
Holt, vice-president, Bern Joaquin, secretary, and
Martha Garcia, treasurer. Working together,
the junior class made this year a memorable
one for all of them.
Now at the top of the peak, the senior class
of 1973 reigns over all others. They've waited
a long time for the moment they could turn
their rings around and call everyone "under-
classmen." The days of joking around and
causing trouble are all memories now, and
it's time to concentrate on the future. The
senior is the one year a student really has
the chance for the recognition he seeks and
this year's senior class without a doubt was
recognized in more ways than one. During
Christmas the senior hall was awarded third
place and their Homecoming float took first
place, not to mention their candidates Rex
Neal and Betty Lou Smith crowned Home-
coming King and Queen of 1972.
At the time of this writing, the seniors are
it looking forward to being honored at the
Junior-Senior Prom sponsored by the juniors.
The sun will set on high school life for the
class of '73, but those memories will linger on!

year and we'Il be graduates of
old F.H.S. Remember our fresh-
man year? We won the spirit
award, a major accomplishment
for our first year. As sophomores,
once again we took the spirit
award, the penny race during
Homecoming week, and the
award for the most original float.
The class of '74 has solved its
fund-raising problems with a
variety of activities, most profit-
able of which was the operation
of the concession stand.
For the most of us the thrill of

Sophomores plan activities.
The Class of '75 is a lively one. They
showed their respect for tradition by entering
into the freshman initiation activities with
enthusiasm. They proved their competitive
spirit by winning the Christmas hall deco-
As Sophomores they have begun planning
ahead for the increasing responsibilities
of their junior year. To augment their treas-
ury, they held a sandwich sale and two bake
sales during noon hours. They sponsored a
booster page in the local newspaper to
build up community support of the Gophers
before the state basketball tournament.
The class sponsored several dances after
home football and basketball games. They
planned a Twirp Dance to start off the spring
The class projected their fund-raising ac-
tivities into the summer months with car
washes and bake sales. Eliminating many
of these hurdles early will enable next
year's juniors to direct their energies toward
providing their upperclassmen with an out-
standing prom next spring.

Freshmen Face Future
The Freshmen this year were off to a run-
ning start. The first up on the agenda was
the painting of the F by the freshman boys,
while the girls stayed behind and decorated
the auditorium for the annual Freshman
Handshake Dance where they were properly
initiated into membership of Associated
As the semester rolled on, the frosh be-
came better acquainted with the campus
and the right classes, at the right period,
and the names of their teachers.
During Homecoming week they dominated
in the grapefruit race. They also put on sev-
eral bake sales to boost their savings.
Altogether the frosh have begun their
first year by taking active part in every sport
and in many different organizations, in-
cluding band, chorus, FFA, FHA, Chess Club,
Pep Club, and GAA.

Our sincere thanks go to the members of the board of education of the Florence school district. We
appreciate the sacrifice they make to attend not only the regular monthly meetings held on second
Thursdays but also the frequent special meetings as well. Theirs is the task of approving budgets and
supervising expenditure of funds appropriated for use by the school district.
Meetings are open to the public to give townspeople an opportunity to hear discussions and decisions
made on matters pertaining to welfare of students and teachers. Their duties include reviewing teacher
applications, interviewing applicants for teaching and maintenance positions, reviewing and acting
upon bids, approving Title 1 projects, approving budget requests for teaching and staff salaries and for
equipment and supplies, hearing special reports and requests from student and teacher committees,
and attending to special items of business as they come up.
The board is now in their second year of office. As a new board, they have had to devote considerable
time to studying the duties and responsibilities of their office. Mr. Elliott is senior member. Newly elected
officers are Mrs. Feliz as president and Mr. Burrows as clerk. We commend the members of the board
for their service to the community and for their dedication to the students of FHS.

Seated: Reginald Shepard, Mrs. Betty Felizg Standing: Allen Elliott, Jeff Martin, Melvin Burrows
Mr Celaya New Superintendent
A native of Florence, Mr. Celaya was graduated from
Florence High School and the University of Arizona.
He returned to FHS in 1953 to teach Spanish and his-
tory. Soon afterward he became head baseball coach
taking his team to state runner-up in 1957 and to the
state championship in 1965. Mr. Celaya has always
believed strongly in the value of extracurricular activi-
ties in the school program and has served the students
as adviser to Lettermen's Club, Spanish Club, and
1964 saw him as counselor and 1966, as director of
athletics. His knowledge of sports and his great inter-
est in them allowed him to slip easily into this new role.
The board of education advanced Mr. Celaya to the
newly created post of principal in 1967. On July 1,
1972, he took over his new office as the superintendent
of Florence High School. It has not been an easy first
year, but it has been a good one. Mr. Celaya has long
since won the confidence of teachers and students
alike. They appreciate his cheerful, friendly attitude
and respect the firmness and honesty of his decisions.
E i A
Administration Sets Goals
Mr. Patterson came to FHS from Cool-
idge High School where he w's teacher
of English and journalism for three years
and vice-principal and athletic director
for two years. He received his Bachelor's
degree in Edinboro, Pennsylvania, in 1966
and his Master's at Northern Arizona Uni-
versity in 1971.
Most important is Mr. Patterson's phil-
osohpy of education. He believes that he
is here to help students understand their
responsibilities in securing an education
and taking part in the democratic process.
He hopes in the future to offer some type
of vocational training at FHS. He believes
the attitude of students is far superior at
FHS to that of students in many other
areas of the state. He feels that extra-
curricular activities are an important part
of the learning process and that a number
of students do not realize what they are
capable of. The job of the administrators
and the teachers is to help them attain the
oan A. Patterson, Principal highest degree of proficiency possible.
What does a guidance counselor do?f
Ask Miss McNaught. Since Florence High
rolled out the welcome mat, Miss
McNaught has directed our testing pro-
gram. She gives Lorge-Thorndike tests
to freshmen, the Metropolitan Achieve-
ment Test and National Education Devel-
opment Test to sophomores and the
Lorge-Thorndike and National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Tests to juniors.
She assists seniors in applying for the
ACT, for scholarships and for college
admission. She keeps a file of student
testing and scholarship records, honors,
Much of her time is devoted to personal
interviews with students seeking help
with personal problems, career infor-
mation college planning, and employ-
ment. She works closely with colleges and
universities and with the armed services
recruiting officers, thereby serving as a
liaison between them and the students.
Miss McNaught visits classrooms at
the invitation of teachers when group
guidance can be registration in August
and of scheduling individuals into their

Joe Valdez, who has been on our staff since
1952, is supervisor of building maintenance and
construction. He drives a regular bus route and
special buses. Arthur Johnsen, new to the staff
this year, is building custodian and night watch-
man. Manuel Olvera is another newcomer to the
maintenance staff. He drives a regular bus route.
Jim Armas is in his fourth year as transportation
engineer. He serves as a relief driver and takes
pep buses to out-of-town games.
Manuel Olvera Joe Armas
We thank you Joe for four wonderful
years You ve been our counselor, our
adviser and our most devoted fan. You're
as much a Gopher now as you were when
you played on the team You've encour-
aged us when the going was tough. You've
helped us to celebrate our victories and
have given us sympathy in our losses.
We owe many of our happiest memories
of FHS to you For your devotion to the
Gophers we have named you our
Honorary Director of Athletics.
A Tribute to Joe!
Joe Padilla has served the school as custodian, maintenance
man, and bus driver for twenty-seven years. During that time
he has seen a complet change of personnel. Students he has
driven to games have returned to work with him on the custodial
staff or to join the faculty.
His specific responsibility is to have charge of the maintenance
and upkeep of the athletic fields. During the day you can always
find him seeding the grass, painting the dugout, cleaning the
stadium and stands, repairing the speakers, replacing flood-
lights, and supervising the many other tasks that are necessary
for the safety and comfort of the teams and their fans. He drives
the team bus.
Joe has full charge of maintenance of the gym for basketball
season, for physical education classes during the school year,
and for special recreational activities in the summer. He keeps
the locker and shower rooms clean and orderly and operates
the laundry room for the department.
Joe spends much of his time in the maintenance shop.

Early in the school year several inter-
ested students got together to discuss
the benefits of a chess club. They asked
Mr. Gardner to help them organize and
act as their sponsor. Accordingly, the
newest club was formed at FHS.
Membership is open to anyone who en-
joys chess or who wants to learn to play.
The chief concern of the club at present
is to find a time to hold meetings since
most of their members are involved in
athletics or other extracurricular activities.
So far, their competition has been
pretty much limited to games set up
among their own members. They did, how-
ever, accept an invitation to play at
Kearny on February 9. They have made
noticable progress in developing their
skill and hope to be able to extend their
area of competition later on.

The time has passed, our work is done, the long hours spent in production of the Saguaro
-1973 are but a pleasant memory. It has been our desire to have every student appear
in the annual as many times as possible. We have attempted to give a complete and accur-
ate record ofthe school year so that this edition of our yearbook may serve, not just as a
memory book to browse through in the years to come, but as a reference book, a history,
for the school and community.
We want to thank the administration and the teachers for their patience during those
hectic days of picture taking, our fellow students for their wonderful cooperationg our
parents for keeping dinner warm until eight o'cIock while we finished those last few pagesg
our photographer, Mr. Lawrence, for his understanding and for the excellence of his workg
and our advertisers whose support made the publication of our yearbook possible. Our
very specail thanks go to Mrs. Bartwau, who gave us the negative for our cover picture.
May your memories of FHS be even fonder as your turn the pages of the Saguaro-1973.
