Out of our graduating class of 27 students, 19 of us started to school
at Gilbert. All of us didn't start at the same time, but through brains,
failures, and newcomers, our class as it stands today, finally got together
in one happy group. In l9b2 there were 61 of us in the seventh grade, and
only 30 in l9L5. In spite of this sharp decrease, it is one of the largest
classes to be graduated from Gilbert High School. And, of course, we think
it is the best. It seems that when a class comes to this point in school its
members always think that their class is superior.
Now we will trace the activities of the Class of l9h7 through the four
trying years of its high school program.
When we entered Gilbert High as beaming freshmen, we were conceited, and
our ambitions were to conquer high school. After our initiation our egos
were deflated somewhat, but we still kept our ambitions, whatever they might
be. We learned quite a few new things, even though we did think we were
already as smart as we could be. In addition to acquiring knowledge, we had
two semester parties which rounded out our social life.
As sophomores our boys gained recognition in football, basketball, and
track. Also our class seemed to be making a name-of its own in the student
body. Strange as it may seem, we felt we knew less than we did when we were
Our junior year was full of studying and fun. With the help of the
Class of IQA6 we practically monopolized the sports and the social activities
During the first semester we gave the play, UArron Slick from Punkin Crick H,
which was a huge success.
Then of course we had the candy sales to raise money for the Junior-
Senior Banquet and Prom. The banquet was held in the auditorium, and the
dance in the gymnasium. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time and enjoy-
ed both the meal and the dancing.
This year we entered Gilbert High knowing that this was our last year of
high school, The senior year always seems like the best, with the most
activities. Again this year our boys sparked all the sports. Their gradu-
ation will seriously aifect next year's teans.
Starting a new tradition, the Seniors sponsored a Christmas formal,
which everyone enyoyed. Second semester we presented the play UThe Mwmqy
and the Mumpsn which proved to be host successful, fron the stand point of
entertainment and finances. The gross income was 5210, and net, 5117.
, Our traditional Track and Field Day was held on April 1. The track
events were staied in the mornin5, and, following a picnic lunch, awards
were made to outstanding competitors. The day's activities were rounded out
with a.novie UThe Lsnd of Libertyu,
Ne extend our thanks to the Juniors for the enyoyable prom and banquet
given in our honor at Encanto Park in Phoenix. It was the first one to be
held away from home in a number of years, and we want all the Juniors to
know we appreciate their planning and efiort.
Je wish the uembers of the Class of l9L8 good luck next year when they
take the role of Seniors. Ne know you will do as well or even better than
we did. And as we say farewell, we thank the members of the faculty for
their guidance and instruction, making possible our graduationt

one pupils, under the direction of Miss Kate Burgett,the mathematics teacher
The class officers elected were: Neales Kennedy, presidentgharry Tang,
vice presidentg Bertha Farnsworth, secretary-treasurerg Jean Cullumber and
Don Clare class representatives.
Looking forward to a busy ye
proceeds from which were used for
candy sales grew so rapidly that
which was constructed by the shop
Christian, After Christmas the
ar, the Juniors started selling candy, the
the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom, The
the class felt the need of a candy stand,
boys under the supervision of Mr. Harold
candy sales were turned over to the Annual
On Friday, November 8, the Junior Class gave a short skit entitled NThe
Country Schoolhousen in an assembly for the enjoyment of the student body.
With this much of the term
gone, the thoughts of the Juniors were di-
rected to the coming class play, HAutograph Annu. Casting was begun with
Mrs. Jane Goldsmith, director, Miss Burgett, assistant directorg Delphine
Clubb, student director, and George Riley, stage manager, with the whole
junior class participating in the
play. To create interest in the selling
of tickets, the class was divided into two teams that cmnpeted to see which
side could sell the greatest number. The class cleared allO from the play.
After the performance Thursday, December 5, pictures were taken of the
cast in various scenes for use in the annual. Then the losing team in the
ticket-selling campaign entertained the winners with a party. After which
the play was pushed to the backs of the minds of the students with sighs of
relief, yet with some regret that it was over.
The drudgery of school was begun anew after the yuletide season, only
to be obscured byfthe glorious expectancy of the class party. During the
class meeting it was decided to have a barn dance in the auditorium on Satur-
day, January ll. Brown and gold streamers were dropped from the ceiling of
the auditorium to give an illusion of an old fashioned barn. Punch and hot
dogs were served during the intermission. The evening ended with a bang,
thanks to the Seniorsllil!
When the past year is reviewed, the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom
stand foremost in the minds of the Juniors. For the first time in several
years this junior-senior event was held away from home, at the Encanto Park
Club in Phoenix. The banquet was a great success with the most delectable
and savory food being served, and everyone enjoyed dancing in the atmosphere
of an old fashioned garden. I
The program conducted by professional entertainers added to the enjoy-
ment of the evening.
That night will remain in the memory of all juniors as one of the most
enjoyable events of their school days.

Deatherage, Don Clare.

Each semester every class entertained the student body with an assembly
program. It finally was the Sophomores' turn, and I think we had a pretty

EIGHTH GRADE ACTIVITIES
At the first of the year, the eighth grade class elected class officers
who were: Alene Farnsworth, president, Sara Verrue, vice presidentg Bill
Later the eighth grade was assigned a part in the Christmas program,
and decided to present NBang Goes Christmas.N
The next event was our class picnic at Papago Park, which the majority
of the class enjoyed.
Nhen it was time to present our assembly program, we were quite excited
We entertained with a skit, HSelma Goes Psychic,H and another musical skit
entitled HWhile Strolling Through the Fark.H Then members of the class dis-
played their individual talents by giving readings and musical numbers.
Most of the school thought we did well.
During the second semester we decided to have class government. Ne
elected students to hold different offices and appointed four different mon-
itors every week to keep order in the halls and on the stairs, and to take
down names of those who talked and disobeyed orders. Je had a judge for
trials if any member disagreed on charges against him,

Thirty-one boys answered Coach Byron Gilbreath's call for football this
.ear. Among these were thirteen players from last year's championship club.
Gilbert played ten games this year, winning all but two, which were lost
-y one or two points.
For the first time in the history of our school, the team played, under
ew lights on the football field, which were generously paid for by the Cham-
-er of Commerce, Lettermen's Club, the School District, and the Class of l9L6.
'At the end of the football season Neales Kennedy, Tiger end, was chosen
o play in the North-South football classic at Tempe. He made a very good
-howing, and Gilbert can be exceedingly proud of him.
Ne were honored to have two of our Tigers on the All-Conference Team.
'n end position went to Neales Kennedy, and a quarterback position was filled
-y Nayne Davis. Gilbert halfbacks, Ray Lemons, and Bob Bier, were chosen on
he All-Conference Second Team.
James Butler was Gilbert's leading scorer this year with fifty-one points
-nd Nayne Davis and Neales Kennedy followed with fifty and forty-three respec-
Gilbert 35 -- Nickenburg 6
The Gilbert High School Tigers opened their football season in a game
sith the big Hmountain boysu from Wickenburg. The Tigers played ons of their
best games of the year, coming off the field with a 35 -- 6 victory. Henry
lopez and Dick Coutchie led the Tigers to this win, as Lopez made many gains,
and Coutchie cmnpleted passes all over the field. Gilbert again defeated the
Wranglers L5 -- 21 later on in the season.
Gilbert lil -- Peoria 26
Gilbert met the Peoria Panthers the next week-end and defeated them Al -.
26. Peoria got the jump on us and scored two touchdowns in the first minutes
of play. Ray Lemons completed two touchdowns to Kennedy in the second quarter
to put us back in the ball game. After trailing 26-20 at the half the Tigers
turned on the steam in the last two periods to win Ll -Q 26. Boyce Cook was
very outstanding in this game, as he nailed the Peoria Ubacksn for losses on
many occasions. Gilbert also won the last game with Peoria -- 2A to 12.
Gilbert 39 - Litchfield 27
The third gmne of the season was played with the Litchfield Owls. Ray
Ross of the Owls displayed some fancy running during the first quarter, and
at the end of that period the score stood at six all. Ray Lemons unlimbered
his throwing arm in the second quarter and from there on it was Gilbert's ball
game, as they completed passes during the rest of the game. James HLegsU
Butler did some fine playing in this game as he snagged two of Lemons' passes
The Tigers also defeated the Owls later on in the season 27 -- 20 on the
Litchfield gridiron. As the game ended, Gilbert had possession of the ball
on their own one-yard line after holding the Owls for four straight downs.
Goodman and May were outstanding in this game, as they stopped the Gwls play
after play. Bob Bier scored two touchdowns to head Gilbert's scoring parade,
while Butler and Kennedy each scored one touchdown. Lester Murphy made good
gains on end sweeps. Calvin Johns played his first game of the year, after
be ing out of uniform for most of the season due to a back injury.

stripes in the remaining seconds of the game.
In the second game with Tolleson the Tigers were handed their first de-
feat of the season. The game was thrilling all the way, with Gilbert enjoying
an 18 to 6 lead at the halftime. Wayne Davis started the fireworks for the
Tigers early in the first quarter when he broke loose on his own thirty-five
yard line and went all the way down to the Tolleson fifteen-yard line where
he was finally pulled down. Three plays later, Bob Bier went over for the
