ANSWERING THE CHALLENGE
OF THE FUTURE...
What the future will offer to the members of the class of l957 only the
days and years ahead can tell. How prepared you are to accept, modify,
or reject the situations will depend upon the success of our efforts to build
into your lives the necessary qualities of character and traits of personality
which will determine your decisions. It is quite true that the three years at
Jefferson High School and the experiences which the school has provided
cannot determine all the factors which are basic.
The influence of family and the basic truths taught by Your church
are so much a part of all that you are and will be in the years to come.
The school has provided the place and time where fundamental principles
of your lives have been provided with an opportunity to understand the true
values as a young mature individual.
The years that are ahead will be of concern for those of us who know
you and think of you as a part of our school life. The problems, disappoint-
ments, and failures will leave their scars only to the extent that the pleasures,
successes, and degree of happiness will be able to overcome them through
strength of purpose and skills in adjustment which you possess.
Our constant thoughts will be with you and your ability to meet the
challenge of the future.

We live in a thrilling world of speed and excitement
that during our lifetime has entered a new era. Through
modern science, man has gained new and greater
heights, and yet reaches ever forward toward higher
goals. Our cover represents this elevation of man.
Herein the l957 Monticello we are trying to show
the influence that the rapidly changing world has exerted
upon our community, our school, and us, the youth of
today. Rock 'n roll, hot rods, as well as the urge to join
and be active in organizations, and an awakening regard
for the slide rule, are our expressions of the speed and
progress of our restless age.
Sensitive to the terrifyingly dramatic advances of
science and the resulting socio-economic implications,
we are gravely aware of the great challenge that our
future offers. Jefferson High School has helped prepare
us to meet this challenge. Ever in harmony with the
developments that each day brings, our school has in-
troduced to us each new step forward, be it science,
social theory, public relations, or the needs of the world
Our teachers, together with our parents, have guided
us ever forward morally, spiritually, and' intellectually.
They have given us the opportunity in our classes, in our
club and in our varied activities to explore and rehearse
We feel that we are ready to take places in an adult
world, to accept the responsibility of life and the world's
challenge to our generation.
We have chosen to dedIcate our l957 MontIcello to
you because more than anyone you have Influenced our
lIves You have prepared us to meet the challenge of our
future Whatever decIsIons or responsIbIlItIes the path

We are happy to have as our new principal, one
who has served our school well for many years. As
former dean of girls, Miss Sumner was already an integral
part of our school life when she rose to her present posi-
As principal, Miss Sumner, can best be described by a
verse from our Alma Mater.
"Onward as duty calls her,
Strong to dare and do,
Loyal whatever betalls her
To Jefferson, our Gold and Blue."
Miss Sumner addresses student body before presenting membership cards
to new inductees.
Two Civinettes, Gloria Serralles and Mildred Gonzalez present Miss Sumner
with a new filing cabinet.

Class Officers: Harold Wallace, Linda Medero, Prudye Jo Muniscalco discuss
plans for the senior banquet.
We, the youth of today, are stepping forward into the
most exciting and challenging future of which man has
ever dreamed. Atomic power, cosmic energy, universal
travel, and journeys to the moon-all of these are paths
that radiate into our future. Exciting! Challenging! . . .
but frightening. What lies ahead for us?
We are now on the brink of a new life. Some of us
will further our high school learning by attending college.
Eventually we will graduate and take our places in the
professional world, as doctors, lawyers, nurses, engineers,
or teachers. Other Jefferson graduates will go directly
into the business world from high school. The girls
will begin earning their living as stenographers or sec-
retaries, and the boys will begin as accountants or sales-
men. Another occupation which will claim some is mar-

riage. This will be a full time job of keeping house and
Our years at Jefferson have prepared us for these new
responsibilities. For three years we have been guided by
our parents and teachers. We have been encouraged to
join clubs and participate in school activities.
In these three years we have matured, studying, work-
ing, and having fun with our classmates. We have made
lifeflong friends of some. Others are just acquaintances.
Yet it will seem strange when in just a very short time

Where will each of us be twelve years from now?
Twelve years ago, in l945, the Atomic Era shattered our
concept of the world with the roaring blast of the first
atomic bomb. As this era was beginning, we also began
our era of learning.

some about history, and were fascinated at the marvels
During our fourth year we learned how to finger paint
and were doing pretty well in arithmetic. While we were
having our own little difficulties, Berlin was divided into
the Eastern and Western zones, This year also we were
busy starting to learn how to play musical instruments.
Some of us were interested in the chorus.
In the fifth grade the music lessons paid off, for we
auditioned for the operetta and for our efforts many
of us received parts in the play. We were now on our way
forward. This is when we formed our habits of studying,

At the end of this year the halls were filled with

Our last pep rally brought a lump in the throats of

Now we must leave you, dear Jefferson, for we are

to college, others will become business leaders, There
are many and varied challenges in the world to be met
by us. First, though we must ask ourselves, "Have I
taken advantage of all the opportunities you have of-

height and fame we will reach in the years to come, we
will owe it to you, our alma mater.

"Any new business?" asks Mildred Gonzalez, president at the Student
Council , , . and another meeting is under way. The Student Council, the
governing body of our school, is a bicameral organization composed of an
elected council and a representative council. They discuss the problems ot
the school and the opinions ofthe student body. Also at these meetings, court
sessions are held during which students who violate the school traffic laws
are given a chance to plead their cases before their fellow students. ln this
manner no one is offended when they are duly punished for their crimes.
Under the experienced guidance of Mrs. Debbie Sanborn, their sponsor of
l5 years, the Student Council runs the Student Supply Store, and is in charge
ofthe telephone booth. As it this were not enough to keep them busy through-
out the year, they undertake many other projects for the improvement of our
school. They publish the Student Guide Book and The Student Directory.
The Cinderella Dance, one of the main social events of the year, is spon-
sored by the Student Council. The officers of this hard working group include
Mildred Gonzalez, president, Joe Caldevilla, vice-president, Yvonne, Cardi-
nale, secretary, and l-larold Wallace, parliamentarian.

THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT
"The Attempt and Not the Deed Confounds Us."
Sir Francis Bacon once stated, "Reading maketh a full
man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact
man." This is the essence of the English Department
and English Council.
The English Council was formed for the benefit of the
students. Here all English teachers exchange ideas con-
cerning the methods of improving teaching techniques
Through the council they are informed of the latest
teaching coordinations in accordance with the different
phases of English. This makes it possible for the teaching
programs to be uniform throughout the school.
An important addition to our Jefferson faculty is MRS.
RUTH JONES our librarian, Mrs. Jones, who received
her AB. at Michigan State College and B.S. in Library
Science at Simmon's College, has enjoyed working with
the Jefferson students by helping them select good books
and secure information for research. Her stay at Jeffer-
son has been most pleasant "because of its friendly
Despite this being her first year, Mrs, Jones has done
a wonderful job in organizing our library. Aiding her
are the Library Assistants who so willingly aid us in find-
ing books which suit our purpose.

His lawyer's training comes in handy as Mr.

Heading the English Department we find cop-
able MISS RUTH GILLILAND. Jefferson's own
expert on Silas Marner, Miss Gilliland takes a
great deal of pleasure in introducing her sophs
to this old miser created by George Eliot, as well
as the Idylls Of The King and As You Like It.
She also instructs seniors in the art of business
English. Under her direction, our English Assist-
ants perform many helpful tasks for the depart-
ment, Miss Gilliland, a native of Tampa, attended
FSU. where she received an M.A. degree. She
is also sponsor of the active Y-Teen organization.
"Whatl will the line stretch out to the crack of
doom?" "Bells, bells, bells . . ." X does stand
for confusion and MRS. ETHEL SCHILLING "has
had it" where her El 2X class is concerned! These
future college freshmen seem to have a great
difficulty in realizing that the bell has rung and
it is time to enjoy a happy hour with Shakespeare.
As Mrs. Schilling, who received her BSE. from
the University of Florida, says, "lt is alla part of

JOHN DAVIS NAMED EDITOR
OF JEFFERSONIAN GOLD STAFF
In co-operation with Betty Camero, his able assistant,
John Daves has kept the Gold Staff running smoothly for
two semesters. Besides, John contributes feature articles
fmainly on teachersl to the Jeffersonian.
CAMERO EDITS NEWSPAPER
Betty Camero who usually acts as assistant to John
Daves edited the ninth edition of the Jeffersonian in his
absence. This edition was a tribute to the Dragon Band.
Almost every article dealt with the Band. This is cer-
tainly an accomplishment for someone who has taken
journalism for only one year.

The Jeffersonian covers the news from the "big scoops"
During the first semester there was only one staff,
headed by John Daves. The second half, however saw a
division and the formation of the Gold and Blue. With
the two staffs alternating issues, there was more time for
planning, and the paper proved better than ever.
Besides being a lot of fun, putting out the paper
offers Jeffites the opportunity of trying their hand at
journalism. Staff members soon become old ??????? at

Before every issue, groans can be heard coming from
208, the city room. This is the sign of the eleventh hour
rush. The copy is overdue at the printers, and some of
the articles haven't been written yet. What's more
there aren't enough ads to pay for the issue. Some-
how, impossible as the task may seem, these remarkable
kids always come through, because nothing is left out

Charles Groover, the Assistant editor, and Eldra Brod,
the Editor-in-Chief, are shown planning the master
layout ot the entire yearbook.
It all started way back in May-l956. We were all quite
excited at being chosen a part of the new staff but none of
us realized just what we were getting mixed up in. Then
the long line of pictures, copy, layout, proofs, and argu-
ments began . . .
Eldra Brod, our Editor-in-Chief, went up to Southern Press
institute at F.S.U. to learn how to put out an annual. Re-
enforced with this experience, Eldra has had the job of
answering our incessant questions, and making sure that
everything got done.

dual role of Assistant Editor and Business Manager. His

Editor, are pictured working on the yearbook.
Rosalie Castellana, Senior Editor, was responsible for seeing
that every senior got photographed, and then for planning,
and getting out the Senior Section. Rosalie was the first
to complete a section of the book.
Eleanor Corral, faculty editor, prove to be an outstanding
staffer, Eleanor and Irene Palaez, Club Editor, worked out
the J.H.S. Life Section. These two were deep down in lay-
out paper and pictures from the beginning of the year until
the last of the last deadline.
Recording the l956-57 Dragon Story were Larry Dupree,
Sports Editor, and his assistant, Leo Gray. From football to
tennis, these boys followed the big teams.
The two that will be back with the Monticello next year
are Ronnie Gavin and Philip Perricone. Ronnie completed the
Underclassmen and R.O.T.C, parts of the book. Philip, the
supersalesman soph, helped on the financial side.
An important part of the staff were Rene Carrera, Art
Editor, and Ramona Alverez, Assistant Art Editor. These un-
official staff members offered their talent to help make the
Monticello a better book.
lt's been a long trek-sometimes rugged-but we've en-
joyed it. We're happy to present the i957 Monticello to all
of you who have stood by us this year.

"Oh, That Our Lips
Walking past Room 3l4, you may hear this familiar
phrase by Mr. D. R. Zabaldo, "Conjugate 'conquistar'
in the passive voice, senorita." Mr. Zabaldo received his
AB. degree at the University of Florida and his M.A.
at the University of Mexico and is now an important per-
sonality in our faculty. He heads the Spanish department
and in addition to teaching Spanish, he sponsors the Pan
American Club. Mr. Zabaldo adds zest and interest to
the learning of conjugations and declensions with his
teaching techniques. For example, any student who
speaks English in his Spanish class pays a penny fine.
This and the many open discussions make Spanish a
most interesting subject.
The second-year Latin class listens attentively as the conjugation of a
verb is explained.

There is a new occupant in Room 309. He is Mr. Clif-
ford J. Quinlan, who received his A.B. degree at George-
town College in Kentucky. Mr. Quinlan heads the Latin
department this year by teaching first and second year
Latin. With his calm and easy manner, he has acquainted
the first year class with Latin vocabulary, declensions,
and conjugations and familiarized the second year class
with stories of Hercules, Ulysses, and other Greek myths.
Besides his two Latin classes, Mr. Quinlan is busy teach-
ing World History. After a full day of classes, he occu-
pies his time sponsoring the Junior Civitans, a group of
boys who are inducted into the club by popular vote of

"At Our History Men Stand Amazed"
The Social Studies group makes up a major part of
our school curriculum. ln these interesting and exciting
classes we study about the patterns formed by the re-
actions of individuals and of nations. This helps us to
understand and to be able to cope with the situations
which will arise in the future.
American History deals with the wars, upheavals,
treaties, compromises, and the reforms in government
that are the foundation on which our present American
democracy is built.
The story of civilization is retold annually in the
World History classes. ln these classes we studied the
developments andthe setbacks that man has experienced
to become civilized as we know him today.
Another phase in the Social Studies group is psychol-
ogy, the study of human relations.
Teaching World History is Mrs. Frances Davis, who
comes to us from Corinth, Mississippi. Mrs. Davis studied
and received her BS at Mississippi State College for
Women. ln her spare time she shows friends her home
movies taken on various interesting occasions, another
of her hobbies is making hook rugs.
Mrs. Cassie Mae Olson, Jefferson's favorite psychol-
ogy teacher, also teaches American History. Mrs.
Olson loves plants and is a licensed florist, but
plans to keep it a hobby until she retires. A far cry from
History, Mrs. Olson is a football enthusiast and travels
all over Florida to follow her favorite squads' games.

"We Have Made A Covenant With Death . "
Jeffites who have paused along the trail to tomorrow
to explore the paths of science and mathematics from
Room 305 certainly have been given a panoramic view
of their possible futures in these fields. Some of the
students inspired in Philip Rosete's classes will take their
places among the engineers, physicists, and research
scientists of tomorrow. Those whose interests lie in other
directions will have a better appreciation and under-
standing of the scientific world we live in, for having
lingered a little while in Mr. Rosete's classes.
Besides explaining the principles of Archimedes, Pas-
cal, and Bernouli, and bursting beakers and thermometers
for his physics classes, Mr. Rosete equates x's to y's for
his algebra students.
Mr. Rosete served this year as president of the County
Science Council and did a great deal to make the annual
science fair a success.
Sponsor of the Key Club, this popular personality

From the Southeast corner of the third floor, you will
hear the constant buzzing of typewriters anytime of the
day. This is the main section of the building for those
students taking commercial subjects. The business stu-
dents of today will be our leaders in the world of business
Heading the Commercial Department this year is
Mrs. Rosalie Prendes, who has been teaching typing and
other commercial subjects at Jefferson for 20 years.
Before coming to us, Mrs. Prendes received her B.S. de-
gree from Florida State University. That first day in typ-
ing, we were sure that we would never be able to type
as fast as the students in second year typing. Mrs.
Prendes soon banished this fear, however, and helped us
to gain a great deal of speed.
Back at Jefferson this year, after an absence last year,
is Mrs. Shirley Robinson, who received her diploma at
Florida State, She directs her students in Business

Walking by 306, one is sure to find girls taking some
fast dictation from Mrs. Olga Spoto. Sometimes they
don't think that they'll ever be able to keep up without
making mistakes, but by the end of the year, they are
amazed at their progress in shorthand. Mrs. Spoto re-
ceived her B.S. degree in Commerce at F.S.U. This year
she is the sponsor of the newly organized girls' service
club, the Opti-Misses.
Rounding out the commercial department is Mrs.
Angie Antinori, who received her B.S. degree at Florida
State University, as did all of the other commercial
teachers. Mrs. Antinori spends a great part of the day
teaching perplexing problems in bookkeeping, These
students breathe a sigh of relief when that long column
of figures finally comes out to the correct answer.
Besides bookkeeping, Mrs. Antinori occupies her after-
school hours with the Future Business Leaders Club.
One of the most important and beneficial of
the future clubs is the Future Business Leaders
of America. This club, which is composed mostly l
of students taking commercial subjects, fre-
quently has guest speakers invited to their meet-
ings who discuss various phases of business. For
additional interest, films are sometimes shown.
During the course of the year, this club toured
the Tampa Electric Company, one of the finest
examples ofa thriving business.
In the way of entertainment, these Future
Business Leaders had a cookie sale during home-
room period, which provided a pleasant interlude
for all Jeffites. The big event of the year was

teacher at the driver's side. Well, you have just seen a
typical Driver Education scene. This usually happens on
the return from a long ride which they take to practice
how to cope with the various problems which are en-
countered on the road.
Driver Education is a relatively new course in our
high school. Students are taught the Florida State High-
way laws, the parts of the car, and most important of
all they are taught to make COURTESY their code of the
Hgh -v rs
road. Students who have taken this course do not end
Fil Nocera explains the various parts of a car
to Driver Education students
Charles Jarczynski and Driver Education stu
dents get ready to go for a "spin
Teaching driving are Charles Jorczynski and Fil
Nocera, both physical education teachers - You can see
how they are prepared to withstand the shocks.
Another organization for the safety of the students is
the Safety Council. Members of the Safety Council serve
as the traffic patrols for Jefferson. They observe the
traffic problems in the school area and make laws to
help both the drivers and the pedestrians.
Students who violate the law get tickets and must go
to traffic court to present their case. This forms the
foundation for good drivers and good citizens.
Byron Gordon, Daniel Fernandez, Gloria Briant, Josie Alfano, and Beth Snyder show that
the Safety Council's warning "a ticket for illegal parking" is more than a threat.
Turning out a fluffy cake, sewing up a fancy dress,
that's what they learn to do in our modern homemaking
department. With the guidance of Miss Rose Messina
and Miss Barbara Pemberton, Jefferson's fairer sex learn
well the art of homemaking. They learn to make use of
all the new improvements in cooking to produce old fash-
ioned recipes that taste like "Grandma's." In sewing
classes they learn to sew their own clothes for economy
and better fit. These girls are making a career out of
what used to be the chores of a housewife.
Twice a year home-ec girls are required to make a
home project and write a booklet along with it describing
how the project was carried out. Some of the projects
chosen this year were the crocheting of a stole, knitting
loud socks, cooking and baking family meals, and plan-
ning parties for younger boys and girls. The accomplish-
ment of a project serves not only as a source of pleasure
to the girl who completes the task, but it is a valuable
family and learning experience.
Shown choosing recipes for their cooking classes are
Miss Rose Messina and Miss Barbara Pemberton, Miss
Messina, who received her B.S. Degree at Florida State,
is the second-year homemaking teaching and is also the
"The best of all physicians is apple pie and cheese." This is one lesson
learned well by the cooking students. Shown here are Lupe Cuervo, Eldra
Brod and Irene Pelaez.

she does just as you would expect, sew. Miss Messina
also enjoys florist work,
Miss Pemberton, who graduated from the University
of Tennessee with a BS. degree, teaches first year home-
making. Miss Pemberton enjoys helping young girls pre-
pare themselves for the future, She is also the capable
advisor to the Kiwanettes.
Stitch, stitch, stitch, clip, clip, clip, and a horrified groan at the slightest
slip. These girls are working on their first dresses in sewing class.
This club is organized to bring together
the girls whose job it will be in the future
to make homes in which fairness, truth,
love and security are the foundations.
With the cooperation of their sponsor,
Miss Rose Messina, these future home-
makers are preparing now to make the
homes of the doctors, teachers, and busi-
nessmen of tomorrow. The goal they
strive for is found in the words of their

Flowers! Ribbon! Pins! Though they are usually in a
state of chaos, the members of this organization are
learning to use and appreciate flowers.
lf you have ever walked down the halls and seen the
students or teachers sporting lovely corsages, then you
have witnessed the work of the Garden Club.
Since they are organized as a hobby club, they have
no regular project.
Heading this group is Ramona Alvarez. Their very
able sponsor is Mrs. Cassie Mae Olson.
Members of this club look forward to trips to nurseries
and other interesting garden spots.
"Tilt your chin upward" was heard throughout the
year as many Art Club members put their learning to use.
Along with making signs and scenery for assemblies
and other club functions, the Art Club sponsored a dance
of their own, Mr, and Miss Portrait. Proceeds from this
dance helped to pay for their annual trip. This year they
visited Ringling's Art Museum where they were able to
learn more about the beauties of nature.

THE DRAGON BAND
The time is 3:00. The place is on the corner of Frank-
lin and Cass streets, We are in a crowd watching a
parade. All of a sudden, a murmur starts spreading
throughout the crowd. What's the reason for the excite-
ment and the bright smiles? Then in the distance you hear
the sound of the beautiful notes of the Spanish march
GALLITO and you realize it is your school band-the
snappy Dragon band. You are proud of your band and
the crowd appreciates the ability at the Dragons' which
were displayed in the Gasparilla Parade, the Sara de Soto
Parade, and many others. Sensing that the crowd recog-
nizes the band, you tell the viewers that not only does the
Dragon Band march well but it also made straight Superior
rating at the district contest last year and was the ONLY
band in the city at Tampa to make a Superior rating at
state contest. This was like telling a college prof that
two and two equals tour, most at these people knew ot
the band's musical talent because they had gone to the
Dragon Band's annual concert.

MORE MUSIC AND
The act of participating in and enjoying music is
truly accomplished by our Glee Club and Orchestra.
These groups are conducted and directed by our capable
band-director, Robert Scott. The Orchestra is a rather
new addition to Jefferson and is a step toward improve-
ment ot our school.
The Glee Club played a very important part in our
Christmas program, They created an atmosphere of re-
ligious inspiration which added a great deal to the theme
of the play.
This year for the first time in many years, you can
hear the powerful baritone voices ot the new male mem-
bers of the Glee Club above the higher-pitched voices of
the sopranos. These male members don't fool around,
they can really sing?

morning Jeffites walk into the auditorium and know
that this is the day! As before, the stage is beautifully

"Chartering the Course" and the four cardinal principles
are compared to the four points of a compass. Five per-
cent of both the Junior and Senior Class receive the honor
of being inducted this time, The goals are high, but they
are well worth attaining.
After this induction, the Honor Society selected four

Sponsored by Mrs. Rosalie Prendes, these girls serve
both school and community. Along the line of entertain-
ment, the Jefferson chapter of the Civinette Club spon-
sored a dance. This dance, the first one held, was called
the "Howdy Doody Get Acquainted Dance." A banquet
was held in honor of our group by Plant High School's
Along with representatives from the Civinettes, they en-
joyed themselves very much at the State Convention
held in Daytona Beach, Florida. During the football
season, a pep rally and dance was held before one of the
most important games. Appropriate skits were provided
by these boys, and by other members of different clubs.
The Civitans offered a prize for the best skit.
The newest addition in the way of Service Clubs is the
Opti-Miss Club. They are sponsored by the Ybor City

during their first year. Some at their important activities
were selling reserved seats for the night Gasparilla Pa-
rade, attending a luncheon given by the Ybor City
"Better Boys Build Better Men." So the Jr. Optimists
strive to better themselves by serving their school and
community. Much of their time is spent in helping their
father club, the Optimist Club of Ybor Cityfsell tickets

Helping Senior Jeffites formulate their plans for the
future is the Wheel Club, As their school service project
of the year this new, but active club has set aside one
day when, with the help of the Tampa Rotary Club, the
Wheel Club will give the Seniors an opportunity to visit
offices or professions in which they are most interested.
Most Jeffites will long remember the "Holiday Hop"
given by the "Wheels" in December. This was their

The Y-Teens are one of the oldest organizations in the
school. These girls start the football season off with a
bang by sponsoring the Hillsborough-Jefferson Pep Rally.

lt is hard to imagine what Jefferson would do without
these two groups who are so determined for us to win
that they do all in their power to keep the players' morale
at its peak, Sponsoring the Cheerleaders is Mrs. Betty

The head coach, B. W. Stewart, is a native Texan who
attended Daniel Baker College of Texas where he re-
ceived his B.S. He graduated in l94l, was a member of
the "B" Club, and was a four year letterman in football
and basketball. Among his hobbies are fishing and
Fil Nocera is another out-of-state teacher. He attended
college in Pennsylvania, obtained his B.S., and grad-
uated in l94l. He later came to Florida and went
to University of Florida where he received his M.E. de-
gree. He graduated from Florida in l952. Two of his
hobbies are sports and fishing.
Henry Verges is a home-town lad who attended Jeffer-
son. He later went to Florida University and graduated
from Tampa University in l95l. He received a Bachelor
of Science degree. Mr. Verges would rather hunt and
fish than eat.
If you ever happen to see a certain coach surrounded
by a mob of boys, you can bet they are listening to a
"fish-tale" because Mike Karaphyllis is an avid skin-
diver and hunter. Likeable Mike attended Florida Uni-
versity, received a B.S. degree, and graduated in l956.
Ted Green, a native New Yorker, came to Tampa
when offered a scholarship in football. He was in the
Tau Omega Fraternity, has a B.S. degree, and grad-
uated in l956. This husky guys favorite sport is golf.
lt's probably no surprise to any Jeffite to learn that
Coach Chuck Jorcznski's favorite sport is basketball.
This 6 foot PLUS giant is the very capable coach of our
junior varsity basketball team. He admits that, like most
other coaches, whenever he has the time he loves to go
Another capable coach is Ray Abreau, who gives of
his own time and effort to help teach boys football and
basketball. He says, "My reason for doing this is so l
can help build boys into men."
Coach Bob Hiller hails from Tampa University where
he played football. Coach Hiller is married to a teacher
and has two children. He coaches Jefferson's J. V.
football and the tennis team.
Betty Groven, who says she is always at a loss for good
words, must have made out somehow because she grad-
uoted from Florida State University in i953 with a B.S.
and was in the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. Her hobby is
spending money and she does flips over sports cars.
New at Jefferson this year is Addie Humphrey, who
attended Northeastern Oklahoma State College and re-
ceived her B.S. in l954. She was in the Alpha sorority
while there. Miss Humphrey enjoys riding horses.

DRAGONS TROUNCE GREEN DEVILS 'I4-12
The Dragons threatened three times before scoring
two touchdowns in the second quarter. Sam Rodriguez
scored on a 38 yard drive. Later Ralph Rodriguez re-
covered a fumbled ball on St. Pete's 8 yard line, setting
up Sam Rodriguez to score again.
The Dragons held off the Green Devils until late in the
game when they scored twice, once through the air.
Long hours of hard drilling and a great deal of Dragan
drive combined to make the big team a rugged oppo-
nent for any Western Conference squad. The Dragons
placed fourth in the Conference race, with bad breaks
and injuries hampering their chances for more glory.
Being able to field a fine team was made possible only
by the fine coaching and harsh, but friendly "chewing-
outs" of Bill Stewart, Fil Nocera, and Henry Verges.

first half, but the second half had plenty of action. Boca
Ciega scored on a 61 yard drive in the first quarter after
a Dragon fumble. Jefferson came back in the second
period as Rudy Reina picked up a loose Pirate pitchout
and lumbered 73 yards for a T.D.
Later the Dragons punched to the two and the ten
but were stopped on a penalty and a fumble, respectively.

of its life and drew well-deserved applause. The
team outcharged and outfought the terriers, holding
them to a O-O first half stalemate.
Outstanding for the Dragons were Rudy Reina,
John Felicione and, until he was injured in the
second quarter, Ronnie Blanco. Sam Rodriguez was
Jefferson's leading gainer with 35 yards and Blanco
second with 34 yards.
Touchdowns for Hillsborough were made by end
sweeps and a center plunge. For the Dragons,
Harold Wallace sneaked across from the one, and

breaks, Sarasota scored once in the second period,
and twice in the fourth, and a freak pass play
was completed, but the ball was fumbled on the
40 and bouncing toward the goal, it was picked up
by a Sailor who carried to the 8, setting up a score.
The Dragons scored in the second quarter on a
l yard plunge by Sam Rodriguez, and Reina scored
the extra point. ln the fourth, Ralph and Sam Rod-
riguez carried the ball to the four where, with ten
seconds remaining in the game, Sam Rodriguez ran
a right end play to score, Twice, Jefferson had T.D.'s

MESSAGE FROM THE MOUND
Coaches Fil Nocera and Henry Verges, our baseball
wizards, have turned the trick again. They have another
successful team. The Dragons placed second in both the
City Race and the Western Conference Race.
The highlights of the season came when the Dragons
blasted Hillsborough pitchers for an 8-4 triumph and
trounced Plant for a 9-4 decision. Another time when
the team played heads-up ball was when they defeated
Sarasota, the Conference Champs, by an impressive 8-6
The over-all record for the Dragons is eleven wins,
five losses, the last six games being consecutive wins.
Against local teams they have won five, lost three, and
their Conference standing is seven wins against two
losses for a highly successful year.
The starting nine are composed of Paul Traynham at
first, Clarence Sheoly at second, Manual Gonzalez at
short, and Pete Ragano at third. The outfield consists of
Joe Ciccarello, Ronnie Blanco, and Robert Perez, Our
hurlers are Ream Wilson, Sam Liccio, and Gene Butler.
On the receiving end of the battery is Tony Saladino.
From left to right: Coach Ted Greene, Rudy Reina, Robert Guerra, Phillip Guggino
and Peter La Russog not shown are Harold Wallace and Jerry Mones.
The Dragon Golf Team had a new coach this season
as Coach Ted Greene took the reins. Under his leader-
ship the golf team worked hard and did very well, al-
though they were under a slight handicap playing with-
out the services of some members of last year's team.

This year the Dragon Tennis Team was gifted with a
new Coach also. Coach Bob Hillier has taken the job
although he does not teach here at Jefferson. He teaches
at Calhoun Elementary School and works with our team
afterwards. The tennis boys have worked hard for the
coach and Jefferson this year.
