CLASS HISTORY








Dear C. H. S.



The Class of 1954 submits, in the record of famous classes of CHS, her addition
to the history of our alma mater. We hope it will be received and read with pleasure
and remembrance.
September 8, 1950, the class of 1954 first entered the halls of Cristobal High School
and with scared looks and mixed emotions, we vowed to make our mark on CHS. That
day also added to our humbleness as the Sophomores beat us in the annual Fresl'man-
Sophomore Brawl. But soon we elected Sheila McNamee as our President, Charles
Thompson as our Vice President, Edna Jenkins as our Secretary, and Larry Cox as our
Treasurer and became full-spirited rooters of CHS. We had big plans for that year,
but Polio put a damper on them and a weiner roast at the end of the year constituted
all our activities.
As Sophomores we came up in the world and beat the class of 1955 in the Brawl.
Our leaders were Charles Lessard, President, Barbara Hickey, Vice President, and
Charles Thompson, Secretary-Treasurer. Mr. Maedl was our guiding light and helped
us plan the Washington-Lincoln Assembly and the Harvest Dance.
We started as upper classmen by voting Tom Catanzaro in as our Junior class
President, Sheila McNamee as our Vice President, Diane McLaren as our Secretary,
and Topper Didier as our Treasurer. Mr. Maedl was again our sponsor and directed
all our productions with expert guidance. We used a Thanksgiving theme for our
assembly and in May we honored the graduating seniors with the gala junior-senior prom.
"Rhapsody in Blue" was our theme for the 1953 prom.
Also as Juniors we received our much-awaited class rings and ordered our class
numerals. In the S. A. elections, three members of our class walked away with offices.
Tom Catanzaro was the new President, Maricha Tagaropulos was the new Secretary
and Topper Didier was the new Treasurer.
Finally we became Seniors and breathed a sigh of relief that we now had only
one more year of high school. With Kay Dignam as our President and helpers, Barbara
Hickey, Ann Maccubbin, and George Platkevich, we had a very successful "Snow Ball,"
alias the senior dance. "Military Maneuvers" was the theme of our assembly com-
memorating Teddy Roosevelt's birthday. Mrs. Smith guided our activities and we re-
ceived our announcements and caps and gowns without delay. The trip through the
canal was eventful and Senior Day was a success.
In gray caps and gowns we graduated and left CHS with fond memories, hailing
the class of 1954 who inhabited the halls of CHS for four memorable years.

Respectfully submitted,

SawP Seta

CLASS PROPHECY






As the tent grew dark and the lone candle played
its weird light on the lined, aged face of an old
fortune teller, Sam Senior waited for the answer to
his question. "What's in the future for the class of
'54? Will we succeed?" The old woman picked up a
deck of dirty worn cards and began dealing them
out on the sticky linoleum table top. Her wrinkled
hands moved deftly as an obscure look shadowed
her face with mystery. Sam watched the faded cards
and then, looking up, saw that the parched lips were
beginning to move.
"In the cards I see a very fine future for your
class. It will be a credit to the world. Ach, yes, a
credit! So much fame, so much distinction, so much
renown. First I see Kay Dignam running for the
President of the United States, and aha! that famous
speaker, her campaign manager, Ralph Reccia, is
predicting a landslide. It is rumored, through Rosalie
Young, the President of Panama's secretary, that the
first lady of Panama, the former Electra Rosania, is
going to invite her to come to Panama on a good-will
tour. That famed pilot, Maurice Leon, has already
offered his service to fly the next president to Pan-
ama, and everything seems to be a certainty.
"And I see more great things. Things that have
never happened before. What's this, a yellow
streak? No, it is Charles Lessard completing his
much-publicized jet trip to the moon. And Bruce New-
hard, following in Clyde Beatty's shoes, has gone far
into the depths of the Brazilian jungle, exhibiting
courage beyond the call of duty. Then I see Miss
Velvia Bringas, after much dispute, has finally won
out to become the first woman editor of the New
York Times.
"Richard Cunningham is now a rear admiral in
the Navy and is trying to change, at the request of
his mates, Alan Alama and John Robinson, the sched-
ules to a four month enlistment at any place the
person wishes to be assigned with a three month
vacation. This, he says, is guaranteed to bring them
in. Dale Cockle, the Chief of the Army, is trying
to help pass this bill in Congress, with Congressman
Tom Catanzaro, the famed debator, being its guiding
light on the Senate floor.
"In Europe, many of your stars are performing.
The race of the ages is against that speed-demon on
the motorcycle, Bob Connard, and that whiz on
wheels, Isabel Serventi. At all the famous night spots
all over Europe, we see the billboards advertising that
versatile dancing team of Marian Didrickson and


Donna Geyer. In Spain it seems that doctor Alexis
Vila has recruited some excellent American nurses
to work in his new hospital, which is financed by that
poor-little-rich-boy, Ted Chin. These nurses are
Sylvia Dinkgreve, Carlene Taber, Arlene Vander-
grift, and Diane McLaren.
"Many of your people seem to have business in
New York," the old woman continued. "In the head-
lines I see the famous case of John Delany vs. Carl
Tuttle with the brilliant criminal lawyer, Tony Dyer,
defending Mr. Delany. The arresting cop was "Eagle
Eye" Forrest. Also the news is concerned with the
excellent performances at Carnegie Hall. Seems like
George Platkevich on the violin and Maricha Tagaro-
pulos at the piano are taking New York by storm.
"In the romantic side I see quite a few of your
girls have gotten married. Carol George has settled
down and Aurora Lim went to Venezuela to hook her
millionaire. Mercedes Peterson also had millionaires
on her mind when she went to Texas to get herself
an oilman. And oh, my, I see that Edda Ulrich was
just voted mother-of-the-year for taking such good
care of her twelve kids. Judy Henriquez has become
quite the famous horsewoman and her noted dude
ranch is the center of many social activities.
"As I look closer at the cards I see that the sports
world is going to have many boys from your class
competing in it. Topper Didier is the playing coach
of the Minneapolis Lakers. Jody Roberson is the All-
American football star. Tommy Hughes is still nurs-
ing his hand from a handshaking session after Ladies'
Day at the New York Stadium. And in the 1956
Olympics, I see John Hayes dominating the basket-
ball floor.
"Ann Maccubbin has followed in Oveta Culp
Hobby's footsteps and has Mary Lou Allen as her
special assistant. Marie Fraser and Sylvia Mann are
the famous dress designers in Judy Ramirez's exclu-
sive dress shop in Hollywood. Rosa Santos was the
interior decorator of the shop and I see that she has
done an excellent job. Ach, yes, an excellent job.
Anita Hepburn is now writing a sequel to Rip Van
Winkle and Jilma Lara is the founder of the new
Puerto Rican Republic. Carlene Tuttle is the rotating
secretary of such famous engineers as Robert Hodges,
Ezra Attia, and Jack Brennan. Richard Sasso is taking
care of dogs and cats and also Babs Hickey, who is
the veterinarian's private nurse.
"Featured in Alice Hannigan's all-girl band is the
golden-throat girl, Joan Holgerson. Idalia Samudio
is a hard-working teacher of home economics. Larry
Cox is a lonely forest ranger in North Dakota. I see
that his girl turned him down. Rudy Smith and Gil-
bert Ferro are a famous frogman team and John
Hatgi is seen ardently pulling teeth.
"I see Sheila McNamee, the world traveler, sailing
into New York harbor aboard the S. S. Mob which
is piloted by Ken Roscoe, and Bruce Sanders is the
unfailing, brave captain."
Slowly the old woman laid down her cards; then
looking up again, she concluded the interview. "Yes,
Sam Senior, I see great things for your class. Ach,
I know, for it is in the cards and the cards never lie!"

STUDENT ASSOCIATION

One purpose of the STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION is to promote
unity among the students.
This vital organization has for its members nearly all the
student body which elects a Student Council consisting of four
officers and a representative from each homeroom. The Assistant
Treasurer is appointed.
Officers for 1953-1954 were Tom Catanzaro (president, first
semester), Diane Scheidegg (vice president, first semester, and
president, second semester), Maricha Tagaropulos (secretary), Top-
per Didier (treasurer), and Alice Chambers (assistant treasurer).
Carol Newhard was elected vice president for the second semester.
Mr. Jacques Cook served as sponsor.
Through the purchase of membership tickets, the students re-
ceive the "Trade Wind," CARIBBEAN, and admission to all school
dances, plays and athletic contests. All the awards-sports, dra-
matics, music-are provided for by the SA.

alternates elected by each homeroom, and the Vice Presi-
dent and Assistant Treasurer of the SA. The Council is in
charge of the gate at all sport events in which CHS par-
ticipates.

This year's officers were Diane Scheidegg, President,
and Alice Chambers, Treasurer. The sponsor was Mr.
Eugene Gregg.

CRISTOBAL JUNIOR RIFLE CLUB


The Cristobal Junior Rifle Club, probably the largest club in CHS, has
a membership of sixty-three, thirty-five of which are really active. There
are plenty of rifle matches during the year, giving lots of opportunities for
winning medals and other awards. The officers for this year are Johnny
Hatgi, President; Johnny Albright, Vice-President; Diane Scheidegg, Secre-
tary-Treasurer, and Donna Geyer, Executive Officer.










The Cristobal Junior Rifle Club Var-
sity is composed of the ten top shooters
of the club. Last year, teams from the
Varsity beat every rifle team on both
sides of the isthmus, coming in first in
the Gallery League. They also placed
fifth in the nation in the U. S. Postal
Matches.
THE VARSITY The "Annie Oakleys" of the club
have really been shooting it up and
THE GIRLS' RIFLE TEAM
can give any team keen competition.
These gals also placed with the top
shooters of the nation.






Donna Geyer and Johnny Hatgi both have
won the Distinguished Rifleman Medal. This
Medal is the highest award in Junior shooting.

Top rating on Field Night was the highlight of the
ROTC year. Other successful events included the
"Battalion Review," an informal dance held early in
January, and the Awards Ball at the Coco Solo Of-
ficers' Club.

Since 1950, the first year of the Cristobal High
School Reserve Officers' Training Corps, the Corps
has steadily improved, in both appearance and
knowledge. The reviews this year were of an un-
usually high calibre; the most important being in
honor of Major General L. J. Whitlock, Commanding
U. S. Army Caribbean, who arrived by helicopter.


N


The Rifle Team, sponsored by Sgt. Lewis Segal,
and Usher Squads were two successful functions in
which the boys gave freely of their time; resulting
in the student body's having greater pride in the Unit.

Captain Lober was a vital factor in the better-
ment of the Corps. It was through his time, knowl-
edge, and ability that the cadets put forth their best
efforts. The Sergeants-"Scotty" Mclnnes, Lewis Se-
gal, and Robert Robinson-also displayed spirit and
willingness to add to the prestige of the ROTC and
to Cristobal High School.

SPORTS

From the Football Jamboree to the Bal-
boa Relays for the boys, and from the first
volleyball serve to the final basketball
whistle for the girls, Cristobal High School
had a full and enjoyable sports year. It
was a year punctuated with
thrills and disappointments, -,
with excitement and, some---
times, gloom.


To the coaches Mrs.
O'Brien, Mr. Palumbo, and
Mr. Moser-and to the many
boys and girls who wore Cris-
tobal's fighting colors, go our
thanks and admiration for a
great 1953-1954 sports
record.

The Journalism Class of 1953-54 hopes that you have enjoyed this "Big Deal." It
has taken many "aces" and "wild cards" to put together what we hope will be remem-
bered as a good yearbook.


We're especially grateful to Sosa Studios of Panama City; to Wayne Wall who
took most of our non-portrait pictures; to Mr. Ben Granger of the St. Petersburg Printing
Co., our printers; to the administration and staff of Cristobal High School, whose co-
operation was certainly appreciated; and to all the students who did what they could
to help us.


Tom Catanzaro was editor of the "Big Deal," Donna Geyer was in charge of
art work, and Sheila MacNamee was business manager.

CLASS HISTORY Dear C. H. s. Pag e 10 The Class of 1954 submiti, in the record of famous classes of CHS, her addition to the history of our alma mater. We hope it will be received and read with pleasure and remembrance. September 8, 1950, the class of 1954 first entered the halls of Cristobal High School and with scored looks and mixed emotions, we vowed to make our mark on CHS. That day also added to our humbleness as the Sophomores beat us in the annual Sophomore B r a wl. But soon we e lected Sheila McNamee as our President, Charles Thompson as our Vice President, Edna Jenkins as our Secretary, and larry Cox as our Treasurer and became full-spirited root e r s of CHS. We had big pions for that year, but Pol io put a damper on them and a weiner roast at the end of the year constituted all our activities. As Sophomores we come up in the world and beat the class of 1955 in the Brawl. Our leaders were Charles lessard, Pre sident, Barbara Hickey Vice President and Charles T hompson, Secretary.Treasurer. Mr. Maedl was our guiding light and helped us plan the Washington-lincoln Assembly and the Harv est Dance. We sta rted as upper classmen by vo ting Tom Catanzaro in as our Junior class Pre sident, Sheila McNamee as our Vice President, Diane Mclaren as our Secretary, and Topper Didier as our Treasurer. Mr. Maedl was again our sponsor and directed all our productions w ith expert guidance. We used a Thank sgiving theme for our asse mbly and in May we honored the groduating seniors wit h the gala junior -sen ior prom. "Rhapsody in Blue was our theme for the 1953 prom. Also as Juni ors we received our much-awaited class rings and ordered our class numerals. In the S. A. elections, three members of our class walked away with offices. T om Catanzaro was the new President, Maricha Tagoropulos was the new Secretary and Topper Didier was th e new Treasurer. F inally we became Seniors and breathed a sig h of r elief that we now had only one mor e year of high school. With Kay Dignam as our President and helpers, Barbara Hickey, Ann M occu bbin, and George Platkevich, we had a very successful "Snow Ball," alias the se nior dance. Military Maneuvers" was th e theme of our assembly commemorating Teddy Roosevelt' s birthday. Mrs. Smith guided our activities and we received our announcement s and caps and gowns without delay. The trip through the canal was eventful and Senior Day was a success. In gray caps and gowns we graduated and left CHS with fond memories, hailing th e class of 1954 who inhabited th e hall s of CHS for four memorable years. Respectfully submitted,

Her wrinkled honds moved deftly as an obscure look shadowe d her face with mystery Sam wotched the fod e d cords and then, looking up, sow thot the parched lip s w e r e beginning to move.

Other successful events included the Battalion Review, on informal dance held early in January, and th e Awards Boll at the Coco Solo Officers' Club Since 1950, the first year of the Cristobal High School Reserve Officers Troining Corps, the Corps has steadily improved in both appearance and knowledge. The r eviews this year were of on unusually high calibre; the most importont being in honor of Maior General l. J Whitl ock, Commanding U S. Army Caribbean, who a rr ived by helicopter. The Rifle Team, sponsored by Sgt. lewis Segal, and Usher Squads were two successful functions in which th e boys gave freely of their time; resulting in the s tudent body' s having greater pride in the Unit. Captain lober was a vital factor in the better ment of th e Corps. It was through his time, knowledge, and ability that the cadets put forth their b est efforts. The Sergeants-" Scotty Mclnnes, l ewis Segal, and Robert Robinson-also displayed spi rit and willingness t o odd to the prest ige of the ROTC and to Cristobal High School.

CLASS HISTORY



Dear C H. 5.



The Class of 1954 submits, in the record of famous classes of CHS, her addition
to the history of our alma mater. We hope it will be received and read with pleasure
and remembrance.

September 8, 1950, the class of 1954 first entered the halls of Cristobal High School
and with scared looks and mixed emotions, we vowed to moke our mark on CHS. That
day also added to our humbleness as the Sophomores beat us in the annual Fres'imon-
Sophomore Brawl. But soon we elected Sheila McNamee as our President, Charles
Thompson as our Vice President, Edna Jenkins as our Secretary, and Larry Cox as our
Treasurer and became full-spirited rooters of CHS. We had big plans for that year,
but Polio put a damper on them and a weiner roost at the end of the year constituted
all our activities.

As Sophomores we come up in the world and beat the class of 1955 in the Brawl.
Our leaders were Charles Lessard, President, Barbara Hickey, Vice President, and
Charles Thompson, Secretary-Treasurer. Mr. Moedi was our guiding light and helped
us plan the Washington-Lincoln Assembly and the Harvest Dance.

We started as upper classmen by voting Tom Catanzaro in as our Junior class
President, Sheila McNamee as our Vice President, Diane McLaren as our Secretary,
and Topper Didier as our Treasurer. Mr. Moedl was again our sponsor and directed
all our productions with expert guidance. We used a Thanksgiving theme for our
assembly and in May we honored the graduating seniors with the gala junior-senior prom.
"Rhapsody in Blue" was our theme for the 1953 prom.

Also as Juniors we received our much-awaited class rings and ordered our class
numerals. In the S. A. elections, three members of our class walked away with offices.
Tom Catanzaro was the new President, Maricha Tagaropulos was the new Secretary
and Topper Didier was the nev/ Treasurer.

Finally we became Seniors and breathed a sigh of relief that we now had only
one more year of high school. With Kay Dignam as our President and helpers, Barbara
Hickey, Ann Maccubbin, and George Plotkevich, we had a very successful "Snow Ball,"
olios the senior dance. "Military Maneuvers" was the theme of our assembly com-
memorating Teddy Roosevelt's birthday. Mrs. Smith guided our activities and we re-
ceived our announcements and cops and gowns without delay. The trip through the
canal was eventful and Senior Day was a success.

In gray cops and gowns we graduated and left CHS with fond memories, hailing
the class of 1954 who inhabited the halls of CHS for four memorable years.

Respectfully submitted,

II THE CAKi>S"

CLASS PROPHECY



1^



^



As the tent grew dark and the lone candle played
its weird light on the lined, aged face of an old
fortune teller, Sam Senior waited for the answer to
his question. "What's in the future for the class of
'54? Will we succeed?" The old woman picked up a
deck of dirty worn cords and began dealing them
out on the sticky linoleum table top. Her wrinkled
hands moved deftly as an obscure look shadowed
her face with mystery. Sam watched the faded cards
and then, looking up, saw that the parched lips were
beginning to move.

"In the cards I see a very fine future for your
class. It will be a credit to the world. Ach, yes, a
credit! So much fame, so much distinction, so much
renown. First I see Kay Dignam running for the
President of the United States, and aha! that famous
speaker, her campaign manager, Ralph Reccia, is
predicting a landslide. It is rumored, through Rosalie
Young, the President of Panama's secretary, that the
first lady of Panama, the former Electro Rosonio, is
going to invite her to come to Panama on a good-will
tour. That famed pilot, Maurice Leon, has already
offered his service to fly the next president to Pan-
ama, and everything seems to be a certainty.

"And I see more great things. Things that have
never happened before. What's this, a yellow
streak? No, it is Charles Lessard completing his
much-publicized jet trip to the moon. And Bruce New-
hard, following in Clyde Beatty's shoes, has gone far
into the depths of the Brazilian jungle, exhibiting
courage beyond the call of duty. Then I see Miss
Velvio Bringos, after much dispute, has finally won
out to become the first woman editor of the New
York Times.

"Richard Cunningham is now a rear admiral in
the Navy and is trying to change, at the request of
his motes, Alan Aloma and John Robinson, the sched-
ules to a four month enlistment at any place the
person wishes to be assigned with a three month
vacation. This, he says, is guaranteed to bring them
in. Dale Cockle, the Chief of the Army, is trying
to help pass this bill in Congress, with Congressman
Tom Catanzoro, the famed debotor, being its guiding
light on the Senate floor.

"In Europe, many of your stars are performing.
The race of the ages is against that speed-demon on
the motorcycle. Bob Connard, and that whiz on
wheels, Isabel Serventi. At all the famous night spots
all over Europe, we see the billboards advertising that
versatile dancing team of Marian Didrickson and



Donna Geyer. In Spain it seems that doctor Alexis
Vila has recruited some excellent American nurses
to work in his new hospital, which is financed by that
poor-little-rich-boy, Ted Chin. These nurses are
Sylvia Dinkgreve, Carlene Taber, Arlene Vander-
grift, and Diane McLaren.

"Many of your people seem to have business in
New York," the old woman continued. "In the head-
lines I see the famous cose of John Delany vs. Carl
Tuttle with the brilliant criminal lawyer, Tony Dyer,
defending Mr. Delany. The arresting cop was "Eagle
Eye" Forrest. Also the news is concerned with the
excellent performances at Carnegie Hall. Seems like
George Platkevich on the violin and Maricha Tagaro-
pulos at the piano are taking New York by storm.

"In the romantic side I see quite a few of your
girls have gotten married. Carol George has settled
down and Aurora Lim went to Venezuela to hook her
millionaire. Mercedes Peterson also had millionaires
on her mind when she went to Texas to get herself
an oilman. And oh, my, I see that Edda Ulrich was
just voted mother-of-the-yeor for taking such good
core of her twelve kids. Judy Henriquez has become
quite the famous horsewoman and her noted dude
ranch is the center of many social activities.

"As I look closer at the cords I see that the sports
world is going to hove many boys from your class
competing in it. Topper Didier is the playing coach
of the Minneapolis Lakers. Jody Roberson is the Ail-
American football star. Tommy Hughes is still nurs-
ing his hand from a handshaking session after Ladies'
Day at the New York Stadium. And in the 1956
Olympics, I see John Hayes dominating the basket-
ball floor.

"Ann Moccubbin has followed in Oveto Culp
Hobby's footsteps and has Mary Lou Allen as her
special assistant. Marie Froser and Sylvia Mann are
the famous dress designers in Judy Ramirez's exclu-
sive dress shop in Hollywood. Rosa Santos was the
interior decorator of the shop and I see that she has
done an excellent job. Ach, yes, an excellent job.
Anita Hepburn is now writing a sequel to Rip Von
Winkle and Jilmo Lara is the founder of the new
Puerto Ricon Republic. Carlene Tuttle is the rotating
secretary of such famous engineers as Robert Hodges,
Ezra Attio, and Jack Brennan. Richard Sasso is taking
core of dogs and cats and also Bobs Hickey, who is
the veterinarian's private nurse.

"Featured in Alice Hannigan's all-girl bond is the
golden-throat girl, Joan Holgerson. Idalia Samudio
is a hard-working teacher of home economics. Larry
Cox is a lonely forest ranger in North Dakota. I see
that his girl turned him down. Rudy Smith and Gil-
bert Ferro ore a famous frogman team and John
Hatgi is seen ardently pulling teeth.

"I see Sheila McNamee, the world traveler, sailing
into New York harbor aboard the S. S. Mob which
is piloted by Ken Roscoe, and Bruce Sanders is the
unfailing, brave captain."

Slowly the old woman laid down her cords; then
looking up again, she concluded the interview. "Yes,
Sam Senior, I see great things for your class. Ach,
I know, for it is in the cards and the cards never lie!"

CRISTOBAL JUNIOR RIFLE CLUB



The Cristobal Junior Rifle Club, probably the largest club in CHS, has
a membership of sixty-three, thirty-five of which are really active. There
are plenty of rifle matches during the year, giving lots of opportunities for
winning medals and other awards. The officers for this year are Johnny
Hatgi, President; Johnny Albright, Vice-President; Diane Scheidegg, Secre-
tary-Treasurer, and Donna Geyer, Executive Officer.




THE VARSITY



THE GIRLS' RIFLE TEAM

of the club. Last year, teams from the
Varsity beat every rifle team on both
sides of the isthmus, coming in first in
the Gallery League. They also placed
fifth in the nation in the U. S. Postal
Matches.

The "Annie Oakleys" of the club
have really been shooting it up and
can give any team keen competition.
These gals also placed with the top
shooters of the nation.



Donna Geyer and Johnny Hatgi both have
won the Distinguished Rifleman Medal. This
Medal is the highest award in Junior shooting.

Top rating on Field Night was the highlight of the
ROTC year. Other successful events included the
"Battalion Review," an informal dance held early in
January, and the Awards Ball at the Coco Solo Of-
ficers' Club.

Since 1950, the first year of the Cristobal High
School Reserve Officers' Training Corps, the Corps
has steadily improved, in both appearance and
knowledge. The reviews this year were of an un-
usually high calibre; the most important being in
honor of Major General L. J. Whitlock, Commanding
U. 5. Army Caribbean, who arrived by helicopter.



The Rifle Team, sponsored by Sgt. Lewis Segal,
and Usher Squads were two successful functions in
which the boys gave freely of their time; resulting
in the student body's having greater pride in the Unit.

Captain Lober was a vital factor in the better-
ment of the Corps. It was through his time, knowl-
edge, and ability that the cadets put forth their best
efforts. The Sergeants "Scotty" Mclnnes, Lewis Se-
gal, and Robert Robinson also displayed spirit and
willingness to add to the prestige of the ROTC and
to Cristobal High School.

FOOTBALL JAMOREE

The 4th Annual Football Jamboree was
one of the school year's "High Lights."

Four powerful football teams fought hard
for the beautiful trophy donated to the
winners by the firm Smoot and Hunnicutt.

Judy Henriquez was chosen as Cristobal's
Jamboree Queen.

All four teams were tied at six points
each, and since defense was the next point
of consideration. Junior College's Green
Waves walked away with the honors.

CARIBBEAN STAFF



The Journalism Class of 1953-54 hopes that you have enjoyed this "Big Deal." It
has taken many "aces" and "wild cards" to put together what we hope will be remem-
bered as a good yearbook.

We're especially grateful to Sosa Studios of Panama City; to Wayne Wall who
took most of our non-portrait pictures; to Mr. Ben Granger of the St. Petersburg Printing
Co., our printers; to the administration and staff of Cristobal High School, whose co-
operation was certainly appreciated; and to all the students who did what they could
to help us.

Tom Catanzaro was editor of the "Big Deal," Donna Geyer was in charge of
art work, and Sheila MacNamee was business manager.
