THE history of the class of nineteen twenty-eight is nearly complete and in this
short space we want to leave a happy reminder of the many accomplishments of this
class of modern youth.
It was only three years ago that we first entered the halls of E.H.S. from across
the way with one hundred twenty-seven in our ranks. There are only seventy-five
of that number still with us, but though some have left, others have taken their
place and we have the distinction of being the largest class to graduate from E.H.S.
As Sophomores we continued our onward march toward the student goal,
doing our part in winning first place in the Arkansas Valley league Scholarship con-
test. As Juniors we captured first place in the Valley Constitution contest, also
helping E.H.S. win second place in Scholarship in the Valley. Each year has found
the honor roll containing its quota of representatives from the class of '2.8.
We cannot forget the abilities of the Seniors as speakers, singers, and actors.
Our Junior play, "A Pair of Sixes" was the introduction of our out-standing dramatic
ability, which was further displayed in our Senior play, "The Whole Town's
Talking." In athletics we have always been well represented.
Each year we have beautifully and artistically decorated our section of the
Auditorium wall, and this year our sign stands supreme.
In high school we have always done our bestg however, what positions we as
individuals are to hold in life's activities have not been determined as yet, but what-
ever they are, we feel that they will be better for our sojourn in the halls of E.H.S.

IT was the Christening-feast of the Junior Class of 1917-7.8. Mother E.H.S'
was very proud of her offspring, for she didn't have such a fine child to Christen
every year. At the feast were seven good fairies, and they had each brought a gift
to bestow upon the child. The first fairy spoke:
"I give to you, Junior Class of 1918, the gift of brilliance. Your honor roll
shall be long, and your grades high. In the Emporia and Arkansas Valley tests,
you will do your part in upholding the standards of your school."
"I give you," said the second fairy, "the gift of music. You shall form a large
percent of the musical organizations of the school, and you shall always do your
best to aid your school in musical feats."
"I," said the little fairy sparkling with fun and enthusiasm, "I give you pep.
Two of your members shall be school cheer leaders, and you shall never be listless and
The fourth fairy spoke, "I bestow upon you dramatic and public speaking
ability. You shall make a huge success of your Class Play, 'The New Poor', and you
shall have a part: in forensics. Yes, one of your members shall win third in the
district constitution oration contest."
"From me," spoke up a lively little fairy, "You shall have athletic ability.
Your girls shall be the school's basketball champions, and your boys shall play a
large part in the other athletic pursuits of the school."
"My gift," said a fairy who carried a palette and brush, "is the gift of art.
You shall have a sign which will show this ability. Your Junior-Senior banquet
will be a 'thing of beauty'.
The last fairy spoke.
"I give you the ability to be a good senior class in I97.8'l9. You will do greater
things than have been done before, and your graduation will leave a space that no
other class can quite fill."
Mother E.H.S. gazed at her child.
"What alot of talents you have," she said tenderly. "I shall never be ashamed
of you. You will be my pride and joy."

A sophomore class with more life than this one is seldom found-everyone
admits it. We have been successful in everything We have attempted-including
the argument after the Wichita game. There was the electric class emblem in the
auditorium, but it disappeared, leaving nothing behind except blue and white ribbons,
mystery and a bare spot on the wall. And then there was the mask party in the
Junior High Gym. There were pierrots and pierrettes, colonial "tlappers" and
"sh1eks", ghosts, goblins, and Witches, boys in short trousers, bare knees and
windsor ties, girls and boys in rompersg Chinamen and dainty little Chinese girls.
There was the confetti, the ser entine, the corn husks on the floor, the cider and the
pie-also on the floor-Oh! Ilqever shall we forget hovv foolish we felt as We
combed that delicious pumpkin pie cut out of our golden locks. But aside from the
battle in which pumpkin pie and corn cobs figured largely, a good time was had by
all. ' f
The class has been Well represented in athletics and scholastic activities. Five
Sophomores : were among the sixteen football letter men: jay Porter, Ralph
Graham, Herman Tarrant, Carroll Honn and our "all-Valley" center, Lynn Mynatt.
Although Ralph Graham was the only sophomore to vvin his basketball letter, the
reserves, who vvon the Butler County league Championship and the Butler County
Tournament, were almost entirely made up of sophomores. Glen Johnson, Kenneth
Parry, and Lynn Mynatt won their on the mats. Helen Lietzke and Virginia
Burch helped El Dorado bring home many debate victories. Max Tompkins and
Ralph Graham, both sophomores, represented El Dorado High in Tennis last year,
when they were freshmen. Coach "Red" Smith expects a number of sophomores
to win their letters in track and field events this spring.
The class has been well represented in the music organizations and on the honor
roll also. .

BAND AND ORCHESTRA
THERE was an entirely different phase put on the delpartment of music in E.H.S.
when Mr. D. T. Lawson and Miss Clara Staadt arrive this year to take charge of
the music division.
There are more than ninety pieces in the orchestra which played all year repre-
senting El Dorado High School. Several members of the orchestra were students
ofthe ninth grade ofjunior High, who excelled injunior High orchestra. An orches-
tra of about thirty-two pieces played at out-of-town entertainments where it was
impossible for the entire orchestra to go. The entire orchestra represented the school
in the Arkansas Valley Music Contest.
Several new instruments were bought by the school and added to the orchestra
during the year.
The high school band carried its work during the year in a fine way. ln snappy
uniform, the band attended the more important athletic games, instilling pep and
enthusiasm in the students, and appearing at any affair at which it was needed.
Pictures on the succeeding page are:
1. The Senior High Orchestra.
1. Woodwind section of the orchestra.
3. String bass section of the orchestra.
4. String ensemble. This organization met twice a week, practicing both on
its own parts of the orchestra selections, and on music entirely for it.

SENIOR HIGH VOCAL DEPARTMENT
GIRLS, GLEE CLUB.
The Girls' Glee Club was directed by Miss Clara Staadt. This club gave some
of the most beautiful music of the year. Although they did not place in the Ark-
Valley contest, they placed first in the meet at Winfield, showing that they were really
of the stuff of which winners are made.
The contest numder used at Wichita was "Children of the Moon", and at
El Dorado feels that they have never had another glee club like this one, and
only hope that we can have another as fine next year.
The first appearence of the group was at the Christmas Home Coming chapel.
It was at this time that the harmony and melody produced by the sixty voices
brought out the appreciation of the school for the club.
Accompanists or the Glee Club were Mary Elizabeth Wheeler and Robert
Many boys' quartets were formed this year in competition for the elimination
tryouts here. However, the judge of the contest decided to make up one of his own
liking, and chose Ned Thompson, Lawrence Greiner, john Higgins, and Tom Fatout.
This one took third place in both the Wichita and Winfield contests.
Boys in the boys' quartet picture are: Buell Mount, George Bacon, Amos Adams,
Lawrence Greiner Leonard Whitlock, Tom Fatout, Lawrence McKinney, John
Higgins, Boyd Bedwell, Everett Hart, Ned Thompson, Kenneth Lichty, Max
Tompkins, Walter Elder and Paul Kemmerley.
The girls quartets were under the direction of Miss Staadt, and did some very
fine work this year. One girls' quartet was taken to Wichita, and with but one change
was taken to Winfield.
The girls worked hard this year, and the effort was rewarded in the best kind of
Girls in the girls' quartet picture are: Louise Sheets, Josephine Waldorf,Lois
Harsh, Helen lone Scribner, Pauline Sayre, Mary Stewart Hall, Mary Elizabeth
Wheeler, and Doris Paulson.
BOYS' GLEE CLUB.
The student body thoroughly regrets that the boys' glee fclub did not appear
in chapel more often. When the sixty boys made their first appearance at the Home
Coming Chapel the Students began to think that the Music department was nothing
to be laughed at.
The glee clubs can not be easily thought of as separate, as they worked so hard
together to make the Musical Comedy the success it was.
The glee club made Several trips out of town, but in times when the whole club
of sixty could not be used, smaller clubs were taken.
The boys have been under the direction of David T. Lawson, who has made them
one ofthe best in this part of the country, with the same kind of improvement that
he has made in all other parts of the music department. He and Miss Staadt have
been a great success in the E1 Dorado schools, and we expect a better music depart-
ment than ever.

The Seniors gave as their class play, the comedy in three acts, "The Whole

second night of the play.
The Senior class got behind the ticket sale in a way that made the seats disappear
A Hne audience was present both nights of the play, and got their money's worth
of entertainment in interesting plots and laughs.
The play was given under the direction of Miss Sweeney, with the aid of Ruth
The Seniors will have reason to remember this, their last play, with pride, for
they couldn't have given one any better.

THE Girl Reserves Club of El Dorado High School has always seemed to mean
a great deal to the girls, but this year it has meant more than it ever did in the past.
The organization this year functioned on an entirely different plan. ln order not to
overwork the program chairman, and the other students who make the plans for carry-
ing on the Hi-Gr work, the club has been run on a schedule known as the "Individual
Club Interest Groups." There were six groups: Bible Group, sponsored by Miss
Cleland. Esther Heise, president. Music and Art Group, Mrs. Schide, Mrs.
Lawson, and Mrs. Deillinger. Audine Smith, president.
Home Arts Group, Miss Herring, Miss Cassler. Frances Caldwell and Ebba
Foreign Interest Group, Miss Beuchat, Miss Houck. Nan Smith and Louise
Health Group, Miss Weaver, Miss Condell. Helen Teter, president.
Service Group, Miss Clark. Martha Arnold, president.
Every girl in E.H.S. was a member of Hi-Gr this year. This is a fact to be proud of

THE Hi-Y Chapter of E.H.S. in the past year has been an organization of rapid
development both in size and interest. It has been a success in the years past and
this year is no exception. The boys who are members of the Hi-Y are those who
enjoy thinking of the serious and earnest side of life for the short forty minutes once
All the time of their meetings was not spent in seriousness, for the boys enjoyed
may good times as vvell.
A In the bi-monthly meetings the boys have a chance to discuss their problems
and give each other advice, While at their other meetings a Bible study is held.
Reverend Condit, Reverend Wentworth, Reverend Young, or Reverend McFarland
were on the program for Bible study. Reverend F. W. Condit of the Christian
Church has given a series of Bible lessons for the boys.
A regular event of the season for the club has been the sponsorship of the Father-
Son Banquet. This is always one of the more outstanding points of interest for the
boys of the Hi-Y.
The club sold pop, hot-dogs and candy bars at the football games all during the
football season. This served the dual purpose of helping the club's finances and
easing the appetite of the spectators.

KRAZY KATS L,
THE Krazy Kats, Senior High Pep Club, was first organized in 1917. Its purpose
was to create pep and good school spirit in all school activities. The Krazy Kats
reached their goal many times during the past year of their activity in E.H.S. Eight
members ofthe club were chosen by the senior girls Pep club of '16 as charter members
of the Kitten organizations. The other sixteen members were chosen from the
Junior and Senior classes. Each member was required to qualify in leadership,
scholarship, or pep before she was admitted to the club.
One feature of the club was the snappy costumes worn by the members. The
black sweaters with the red Kats identified the girls of the club as far as they could
Two honorary members of the club are Shirley Brown and Rowena Whitvx ang
who are both living in Newton, Kansas at present.

tributed much to the general enthusiasm of the school, and a great deal is expected
of them for the next year. '

After looking at the many fine annuals which had been published by the students
of this school before theirs, the members of the Annual Staff felt that they must
work with all their might to have a book that could be termed a little better.
This would have been entirely impossible Without the cooperation of the stu-
dents, faculty, and organizations of E.H.S., in both financial and literary ways.
The staff takes this opportunity to thank those who have given their help in the
making of this book, the Modern Edition of the El Doradoan.
At the end of the school term of 197.6-7.7, the Juniors, or Seniors-elect, chose
the members around whom their staff would be built. The Editor and Art Editor
worked the following summer on the plan of the book, that it might have at least
the advantage of an early start. Now, as the end of our last school term approaches,
they feel that their work has not been entirely in vain.

THE EL DORADOAN STAFF
THE EL DORADOAN, the Official paper of the El Dorado City Schools, was
published by the Journalism Class of the Senior High School.
This four-page paper, appearing semi-monthly, gave the news of all the schools
in the city, as well as articles of interest from other papers.
The Journalism Class was composed entirely of Seniors with the exception of
two juniors who entered the class later in the year. The class worked under diffi-
culty during the year as none of the students had ever studied this subject before.
They learned theory and practice together. One handicap of the class was the
change of instructors. Mr. Curl started the class and published two issues of the
El Doradoan, then Mr. P. Dix took charge Of it.
The eagerness of the students to get their papers when they were published was
proof of the popularity of the E1 Doradoan. Q

These teams met those of the Arkansas Valley which p they were scheduled to
meet. The reward they received after their season of hard work was third place in
the Arkansas Valley League.
The teams well deserve credit for their hard and strenuous hours of toil. Miss
Sweeney spent time and patience instructing the debaters, while Miss Milford
coached extempore speaking and oratory.
The public speaking department, coached by Miss Sweeney, had an active part
in the inter-scholastic contests.
ln the Arkansas Valley extempore contest held at Arkansas City, El Dorado
was represented by Ruth Carinder and Victor Boellner. El Dorado placed third.
Victor Bcellner represented El Dorado in oratory with "Tumble Weeds", the
oration he Composed and delivered. Victor placed third in the Arkansas Valley
Contest, and first in the contest at Winfield.
Helen lone Scribner represented El Dorado in the interpretive reading contest
at Newton, but was unable to place for El Dorado.
Old E.H.S. has reason to be proud of the students who have so willingly strived
to represent the school in a way that would bring honor to it, and who have helped
make this year one of the most eventful in the history of El Dorado Senior High,

FROM the time the El Dorado Wildcats opened the season against Kingman High
here on a dreary, rainy day, until they closed the season with a brilliant 7.7. to o
victory over the Newton Railroaders on Thanksgiving Day, the local eleven enjoyed
uniform success. The only real setback was the Wichita game, when the team that
later vvon the Valley championship defeated the Wildcats, Il to o. El Dorado held
the powerful Marion team to a scoreless tie, and, late in the season, defeated the old
rival, Augusta, by a big score. El Dorado finished in a tie for second place in the
Arkansas Valley League. The Wildcats met Arkansas City in a game which Was
to determine the runner-up position, but the final score-of the contest was knotted,
6 to 6, so the Wildcats and the Arks remained in a tie for second.
The team this year was almost wholly different than the one which brought
the Valley championship to El Dorado last year, and the players and Coach "Red"
Smith must be given credit for accomplishing so rnuch.

His real name is Carroll H. Smith, but everybody calls him "Red" for obvious
reasons. He came to El Dorado this year from Marion, and he speedily earned a
place as one of the best liked members of the faculty. "Red" is a skilled
athletic coach, an expert gymnasium instructor, and a real friend to the boys who
work for him. The best thing Marion High School ever did for El Dorado was to
give us their coach, "Red" Smith.
p HARRY HASLER
ONE characteristic distinguishes Hasler more than any other. That is his
everlasting pep and fight. No matter how discouraging things appear to be "light-
horse Harry" is bound to be shouting encouragement to his teammates. Hasler
shared the captaincy of the eleven with Noble. He alternated at quarterback and
halfback and played equally well in either position. His puntinfg ability many
times saved the day for the Wildcats. Hasler was named captain o the All-Valley
Jack Noble, one of the two captains of this year's eleven, is another steady and
dependable player. His regular position was at right guard, where he served
faithfully against all kinds of opposition. Noble could always be counted on to
give his very best, and El Dorado High will lose a good gridiron man when Noble
graduates this year. Jack was given one of the guard positions on the Second All-

Tarrant, a sophomore, played like a veteran for the Wild-
cats this year, at fullback. He charges the opposing line with
a force that is almost irresistable, and, when necessary, he can
punt and drop-kick accurately. He particularly distinguished
himself this season in the Thanksgiving Day game with Newton,
when he made a pair of touchdowns and a long drop-kick.
Porter is a backfield man. He played at full and at half
and handled both positions well. Never a brilliant or sensa-
tional player, Porter is one of those players who keeps plugging
along until he eventually gets farther than many of the would-
be stars. Porter will be back next year.
"Speed" is his nickname and speed is his chief claim to
fame. Thompson was sent into the line up at many times when
a fast play around end was sure to bring El Dorado a touchdown.
And "Speed" always lived up to his name. His playing was
consistently good, although not brilliant, and he will be re-
membered for his fast footwork, which at times was inde-
spensible to an El Dorado victory.
Steady, dependable, and powerful, Mynatt, another sopho-
more, held down his position at center so well that he earned
a place on the All-Valley eleven, Mynatt seldom made a bad
pass from center, and he always held like a stone wall against
the onslaught of the opposing linesmen. His playing helped
greatly in giving the El Dorado eleven one o the strongest
lines in the whole Ark-Valley League.
"Tuba" is the player elected to serve az captain next year.
His regular position is at right tackle. Thompson is one of
tne heavyweigl-its of the team, but at that he managed to get
around rapidly enough to lay low many an opposing player who
appeared to be headed for a big gain. "Tuba" claims his
football skill is du: to the fact that he walks a couple of miles
to school evzry day, but nevertheless he is always willing to
accept a ride.

Breen is a cowboy from the wild, wild West. He came here
this year from New Mexico. Evidently bronc busting and stee r
roping make good football layers, for Breen is an excellent
batktield man, and he playedla good part of the time at right
half on the Wildcat team.
A'CY" is built on the order of a telephone pole. Conse-
quently, he made a great player at left end on the Wildcat team.
His height and his long arms served him well when it came to
snagging forward passes, and his long legs always carried him
far down the Held when the quarterback barked "Punt Forma-
tion". McGregor is ordinarily rather quiet and peaceable, but
on the gridiron he is a raging Wildcat.
Perfect proof that the bigger they are, the harder the other
fellow falls. When Bob Brittian tackled a man, that man went
down and stayed down for a vvhile. Bob played left tackle and
his ability to tear through the opposing line and break up back-
field plays, or to hold his own line with unshakeable strength,
were great assets to the Wildcat eleven. Brittain was named
All-Valley tackle in the ofhcial selections, he is a senior this year.
"Brownie" is another speed merchant, whose fast gait
often brought big gains around end. One of the most thrilling
sights of a game was to see Brown, from his place at halfback,
begin a sweeping run around end. He was seldom thrown for
a serious loss, and many times a five ot ten-yard gain was cred-
ited to "Brownie". He was given honorable mention by the
ofhcials who selected the All-Valley eleven. Brown graduates
Another sophomore and another good player. Honn's
regular position was at left half, where he displayed lots of skill.
If he continues to play as well, it is likely that Honn will be
holding down a berth on the All-Valley eleven within the next
year or two. One of the best games he played this season was
the one at Newton, where he contributed a touchdown to
El Dorado's 2.7. to o victory, which gave the Wildcats a tie for
second in the All-Valley League.

Perhaps gentlemen prefer blondes, but football teams prefer
red-haired lighters, and Dan Blaine is the why of it. A speedy
and dependable player, he gained renown in the First game
of the season, with Kingman, when, after the two teams had
fought for three scoreless quarters in the rain and mud, he caught
a forward pass late in the game and romped over the goal.
All season Blaine played well at his end position, so well that
when the oHicial All-Valley selections appeared,Blaine was placed
at right end on the first team, He will be back for another
Football is generally conceded to be a game for those who are
either tall, or heavy, or both together. Rogers is none of these,
but he is game a little lighter and his hard work and brainy
playing helped the wildcats immeasurably. Roger's generalship
and headwork at quarterback were respansible for much of the
success of the team, and "Donny" deserves special credit because
he overcame the disadvantage of being small in stature.
Regular left guard on the Wildcat eleven, Whitlock helped
make the El Dorado line a veritable rock wall. Big and husky
as he is, he was able to stand up under the hardest of attacks
and he never flinched when it came to holding the line at an
important moment. He will be back next season, to bolster
up the Wildcats of next season.
"Snags" is an all-around athlete. He plays tennis and bzs-
ketball, as well as football. His speed and size make him an
excellent backfield man in football, and his playing at halfback
on the Wildcat team this season was worth much to the team.
Graham is just a sophomore, so he will be back for two years
more of play with the Wildcats.

TH11 Wildcats were only moderately successful in the basketball campaign this
year. W ith the team that won the Ark. Valley championship last season lost through
graduation, Coach Smith had to develop an entirely new squad, with two or three
exceptions. El Dorado show ed good form in many of its practice games with non-
league schools, but the Wildcats could do little against the fast competition in the
Valley League, and El Dorado finished in seventh place in the league.
'lhere were, however, a number of outstanding performances by the team. One
was the brillitnt victory which El Dorado won over Wichita, in a game here early
in the season. Another was the fact that El Dorado managed to defeat its old rival
Augusta High. The local team went to the district tournament at Wichita and de-
feated Cathedral High, of Wichita, in the first round, only to be eliminated by the
Winfield team, which later won the state championship.
Still another redeeming feature of the basketball season was the record made
by the Reserve team. This team went through the Butler County League schedule
with io straight victories, and climaxed the season by winning the Butler County
High School Tournament. Eenefitting greatly by the experience which this seasons
competititn has given them, the Reserx es, most of whom are sure to be back next
year, will form an experienced squad from which to select a regular first team. With
several members of this year's first string back next year, and with the Reserves in
addition, El Dorado should have a team which will make up for the hard luck the
team sugered this season.

Hasler played one of the regular guard positions.
He proved to be one of the most valuable men on the
team, chiefly because of his splendid defensive work,
and his ability to break up the opposing attack. Then
too, whenever the occasion demanded it, he could
come through with a long shot for a field goal. He
was one of the hardest fighters on the squad, and he
will be greatly missed when he graduates this year.
Captain McGregor played center on the Wildcat
quintet. His height and his long arms enabled him
to get the tip-off a majority of the time. His floor-
work was good and consistent and he could be counted
on to carry the ball down the court for an easy shot,
or a pass to one of his team mates. Nile is ordinarily
a good shot at the basket, but sometimes he was off
form and had trouble in locating the goal. He made
a good leader for the Wildcat five.
Tall, tangy, and fast, Breen has all the require-
ments ofa good court man. His playing at forward
was of great value to the team. A good shot most
of the time, he was, in many games, among the lead-
ing scorers. His defensive playing was likewise
good, and his skill at blocking passes or breaking up
a long dribbling-attack stopped many of the oppo-
sition's tries at the goal.
GEORGE BizNsoN, JR.
For all his small size, Benson was one of the best
players on the Wildcat live. He is a good shot, and
his dribbling and fast floor-work made him especially
valuable. Often "June" had to play against players
that appeared to be twice as tall as he was, but he
never minded that, and often, because of his small
size and speed, he managed to elude opposing guards.
Benson will be back next year, to serve again with the
Whitlock, guard, was one of the huskies of the
team. His height and his long reach made him a
splendid man on defense. He often played at center,
also, and here his size hel ed him all the more. He
was a steady player, a goodlshot most of the time, and
above all, he fought with the all spirit ofa dyed-in-

Noble is a guard, and a good one. His playing
contributed a great deal towards making the Wildcats
a strong defensive team. The El Lorado defense
was the team's strongest point, and Nobles steady
playing helped lots. Jack many times broke up
iciup plays and trder-the-l'asket shots by opposing
forwards. His ability to block a :hot without foul-
ing was worth much to the Wildcat team. Noble
graduat:: this year.
Angleton generally played a guard position,
although he sometimes shi ted to forward. He played
slowly and deliberately, yet he often managed
to outwit a speedier opponent. One of the steadiest
players on the team, it was often his calmness that
kept the other players from becoming erratic. Angle-
ton graduates this year.
v Graham is only a sophomore, but he played this
year like a veteran member of the High School team.
He generally played forward, and his skill at hitting
the basket brought many points to the Wildcats. His
defensive work was good, and his speed and ability
to outguess the opposing team helped him immeasur-
ably. Two more years of basketball will surely
make Ralph an excellent player.
Fuhrman, who played forward, was one of the
speediesr men on the Wildcat team. His speed often
enabled him to dribble around the opposing guards,
for a shot from under the basket. On defense he
covered his man well, and he was tireless at following
the ball. His inability to hit the basket is easily
his greatest weakness. His pep and fight added a
great deal to the team spirit of the Wildcat players.
Curry kept improving as the season progressed.
Starting as a member of the Reserve squad, he was
soon promoted to a first-team berth, and later he
began playing one of the regular positions at forward.
Probably hs best quality in basketball is his speed
and shiftiness, which makes him almost impossible
to stop. He is a game fighter, and his red-thatched
head could be seen in nearly every play of the games
in which he took part. He is a good shot.

EL DORADOYS successful wrestling teams during the last two vears should assure
the continuance of the sport in the local school. Interest in wrestling grew con-
siderably during the last year, and a fairly big squad of would-be Tarzans, reported
for the team at the beginning of the mat season. When the Ark Valley Meet was
held here, a large crowd attended, and much interest was shown in the contests.
While wrestling is not as thrilling or exciting as basketball and football are to most
fans, it is, nevertheless, interesting enough to attract many. The El Dorado team
had hoped to go to some of the big inter-school meets during the latter part of the
season, but this hope was fruitless. lt is significant of the locals' strength, however,
that Douglass High, whom El Dorado defeated, won the big inter-school meet held
The El Dorado High Wrestling Squad this year was one of the best the school
has ever had. The Wildcat wrestlers won a number of dual matches with other
schools, and climaxed the season by taking second place in the Arkansas Valley
League Tournament, which was held in El Dorado. The Wichita matmen managed
to defeat the local squad in the Hnals, just as they did last season,but El Dorado
battled hard and the Wichita grapplers found things not too easy. Bob Brittain
won the Arkansas Valley heavyweight title for El Dorado, in the last match of the
tournament. Others who wrestled in the Ark Valley Meet, representing El Dorado

FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL
ELDON GRIGGS, Capmzn
DURING his three -years in Junior High
School, Griggs has accomplished the utmost
in athletics. He has earned nine letters, in
football, basketball, and track, served this
year as the captain of both the football and
basketball team, and since his first year at
,junior High, has been one of the most de-
pendable athletes that Junior High has ever
claimed. His graduation this year from
Junior High will be a great loss to the Jun-
icrs, but will help Senior High teams im-
measurably. Above everything else, Griggs
is a modest winner and a good, though sel-
, GEORGE BROMELL, Coach
Coach Bromell conducts the El Dorado
kindergarten school in athletics. That is,
he turns out the athletes, who gain exper-
ience and practice which enable them to
"star" on the Senior High teams. The
Wildcats have won many athletic champion-
. , ships in the last few years, and Coach Bro-
mell had a great share in all, for the training
he gives his "Kitties" is the thing that finally produces real roaring Wildcats. Every
year Coach Bromell has to start all over again, for he annually loses his team just
when it is becoming a world beater. Despite that, Coach Bromell consistently
develops winning teams, in all athletic lines, and his services as athletic coach make
him valuable to the El Dorado High Schools.
JUNIOR HIGH ATHLETICS
With "Red" Smith, Coach Bromell, and Miss Evelyn Brownlee as instructors,
the physical education department at the junior High School flourished this year.
The department presented a big gymnasium carnival on April 7.5 and 7.6, and the work
displayed at the carnival was excellent in every respectf The gym classes spent much
time preparing the drills and dances which were a part of the carnival, and their
hard work was rewarded by the excellence of the performance. Another feature
of the gym work this year, both in junior and Senior High, was the Intra-Mural
Basketball League, which functioned according to a regular schedule during the
court season, and which gave many students a chance to play on organized teams.
Gymnasium, although a required subject in Junior High, is by far the most popular
of all non-academic subjects, and its popularity is due in no small measure to the fact
that the three capable instructors have made the work so interesting and varied.

A "green" team untried and inexperienced, opened football season for the
junior High School. At the close of that season, the team emerged as the most
successful football eleven ever to represent the local school, El Dorado played
eight hard games during the season, and won or tied every one of them. Not once
did an opposing team cross the local's goal, and the Kitties managed to score 2.19
oints during the season, an average of more than 7.7 points per contest. El Dorado
broke all records for high scoring, when they made IO7. points against the Matfield

then dropped one to Blackwell. Continuing to win most of its games with fairly
