A 53' fi C521 gf 57 Q A 0ur 60 We Faculty Do you recognize this pleasant looking group? For the past few years these pedagogues have had their hands full try- ing to mould the plastics that are our- selves. We have been so formless at times, We wonder that they could shape us at all. Our indifference to education might easily have made them think they were nursing sleeping-sickness victims. It has taken patience and ability to guide us successfully through our high school career, but our faculty possess these qualities to a high degree. They have been not only teachers but also friends-- friends who have left their indelible marks on our characters. In the years to come, after this book and the momories it holds may have been forgotten, they will be remembered. We are grateful for the privilege of being associated with such unselfish, highly-trained members of the teaching profession. To Principal E. L. Harms-leader of the flock, guiding light of our school- we are indeed grateful for the multitude responsibilities you have shouldered in our behalf and the innumerable Ways you have aided us with your wisdom and fore- sight.

The High School Student Council, that group which sometimes can be seen sleeping in room 3-13 on Monday morning, is an or- ganization which functions to the best inter- ests of the E. H. S. student body. The Council organized a long-desired journalism club which through the generosity of The Butler County News publishes a weekly page, The Wildcat Scratches: The Council in an attempt to do its part for America aided in selling Defense Stamps, offered the services of our students to the Civilian De- fense Council, made contributions to the Red Cross, and took an increasing interest in community projects. The Council also sponsored assembly programs to bring for- ward the talents of the students. Through- out the year a committee composed of Miss Flaherty, faculty supervisor, Ross Lay- bourn, Dave Clymer, Patty Gore, Mary Ruth Murray, Catherine Clymer, Archie Leben, and Warren Ralston, planned and directed school dances. These varied activities of the council have on the whole been very suc- cessful. The following were the hard work- ing officers of the year 1941-1942: Mary Ruth Murray ............ President Archie Leben ....... ..... V ice-president Patty Gore ........ .......... S ecretary Charles Omer .. .... Faculty Advisor Board of Education To Superintendent J. F. Hughes and the Board of Education-Although your duties seldom bring you into direct contact with us, we the student body are surely apprecia- tive of the unselfish consideration you have given to our continuous needs.

William Robert Reynolds, United States Naval Reserves in submarine duty. e Seniors National Honor Socfbfy The National Honor Society was estab- lished to stimulate the scholarship of the students in the high schools. The selection for membership is based on scholarship, character, leadership, and service. The up- per one-third in scholarship is voted on by the seniors and the faculty, with this rec- ommendation a faculty committee elects the members. The officers chosen by the organization this year are James Bain, president, Ross Walker, vice president, and Gertrude Stone, secretary. Other members are Bill Biles, Virginia Coffman, Mary Eva Brown, Kel- ley Caldwell, Marjorie Cooper, Byron Cox, Laird Crocker, Marjorie Doyle, Dorothy Ewing, Peggy Fite, Charles Fullinwider, Patty Gore, Ervin Grant, J. B. Hanks. Jeanne Hess, Frank Jensen, Marjorie Jones, Mary Kriftewirth, William McKinney, Joe Moreland, Mary Ruth Murray, Bob Riegle, Eda Rodenkirch, Dick Schmidt, Dick Shields, Harold Steadham, and Dorothy Straubinger. The society's sponsor, Miss Mabel McCar- ty, instructs the members as to the purpose of the organization and directs the initiation ceremonies. She deserves real credit for her work with the organization. The valedictorian for the class of '42 is Charles Fullinwider. The salutatorian is Marjorie Jones. These honors seem fitting rewards for two students who have gained respect from teachers and fellow classmates alike for their outstanding scholarship. ii, l voteofctoamm cuss, FUl.LlNWlDER Z ,, , ,,,,, sfxruiffiiosleiifixxs l i MARJORIE semis ,I A 1 4 Q 0ar 0fHcers Ervin Qvoini Pmsicieni: elamesiflaicher Vieempveslcieniz Honda lieuqh Ma rf orieCooper s Secreicxry Tr ea s u re if Zi. ..:?EEgE .v2E:EA, , The Rest 0f Us V - ...... , f . ., - 2 ' ' ""' . ., 96 ze, ef . f '- "' - ., ,, -.::'s-:ZF M, , ....-:.::a a2",'-' - ,.

Tile W- .,,,,, dass 0f 474 In the lower halls of El Dorado High dwells a forgotten race-the Sophomore Class. Its members look with longing eyes at the grace, charm, and assurance of the lofty Seniors or of the slightly less lofty Juniors. Ah, the seniors are our ideals, to be one of them our ambition! But after taking off the rose-colored glasses, we still find that the Sophomore Class has plenty of promise. We were a little green, but, after a few weeks in the big building, we Sophomores had made our place. In fact our skies were clearly blue until on the horizon appeared a dark cloud -the Pep Club initiation. VVhat a shock to discover that some of our oomphiest debu- tantes could be de-glamorized by a gunny sack or a hairnet. We attended all the football and basket- ball gamesg there we cheered ourselves hoarse. Some of our Sophomore boys- Lewis, Shrader, Durnil, and Lumpkins-- seem destined to be the stars of the court next year. Although precedent forbade our staging a play, potential Barrymores and Cornells exist in our midst. Our members have performed in assemblies, in Girl Re- serves, and in Hi-Y. In fact, our ranks overflow with talent, beauty, and skill. COf course, weire not pre,judiced.J Sometimes we are patronized by older students, but this doesn't faze us a bit for into our hands soon will be laid the keys of the high school. Even though you think we have already accomplished a lot, you have seen little yet for we're an up-and-coming lot. The Sophomores of today will be the Seniors of tomorrow. So look out, World! The Class of '44 is on its way! Under Pu dass 0f 473 Although the old saying, "The middle class is the backbone of all", may not be wholly our boast, we have contributed our bit toward making this a successful school year. Under the leadership of our effi- cient head sponsor, Mrs. Harriet Fisher, and our class officers our accomplish- ments have been many. These officers were president, Bill Walker, vice-presi- dent, Rex Gifford, secretary, Gwen Kist- lerg and treasurers, Nancy Schrepfer and Larry Brown. fWe needed one to watch the other.J Characteristics of the banquet were at- tractive decorations and clever toasts cen- tering about the theme "Spring Time." Bill Walker, as toastmaster, introduced the speakers who were Betty Lou Ballew, Kenneth Dulaney, Larry Brown, Miss Ruth Hanson, Rex Gifford, Frank Hall, Penelope Pappas, and Nancy Schrepfer. Everyone agreed that the Junior banquet was one of the outstanding events of the year. At the Junior Class Play, "Who is Mrs. Chimpsief' every actor received his share of laughs. These were furnished by an able cast of ten members under the superb direction of Mr. G. Haldane Crooks. Our athletic ability is found in Rich- ard Lee, Verlan Shearburn, Floyd Holmes, Robert Beal, Rex Gifford, Norman Mur- phy and Lloyd Singer. Of Lloyd we are especially proud because of his proficiency in basketball. If it's music you want, the Junior Class is melodious to a large degree. Sev- eral who make this possible are Dor- othy Doornbos, Mary Jo Staley, and Gloria Browning in the vocal section, Gwen Kist- ler, Mae Doornbos and Penny Pappas in the piano department, and Bruce Hanson with his violin. Few Fridays have gone by when you have not seen some of our Juniors parti- cipating in the assemblies. We even gave our original pageant on Kansas Day which proved artistic, interesting, and in- formational. The Junior Class is the seventh heaven for Dan Cupid with such mighty two- somes as Cox-Wolfe-Holmes-McClure-- Blanchard-Darnold-Gifford-Paden- and of course Mr. and Mrs. John Varble. VVe have talked much about ourselves. Now it is fitting that we pay tribute to that outgoing class, the Seniors. Being in the same building with you for two years, we have come to know you as a hard- working, efficient, and talented class. You have set high standards which we will try to maintain so that others in turn will look to us as we looked to you. Since the world is in a chaotic condition, we realize you are probably confused as to your next step. But we, the Junior Class, wish you all the success you well deserve. flfgli ,ff QW Q49 Ma IC Girls' 6'!ee dub Boys' Wee dub The Girls' Glee Club, this year under the able direction of Miss Thelma Snyder, has indeed been a growing organiatizon. The mid-semester saw many new students enter which helped a good deal for fun and har- mony CYD. Among the highlights of the year were the two operettas in which all of the mem- bers took part. Also they will furnish the Commencement and Baccalaureate music this year. Owing to the war, only four girls represented the club in the contest at Wich- ita. Marjorie Doyle and Euna Mae Brown qualified for the national contest at Omaha, Nebraska. The officers were president, Gloria Browning, Vice-president, Janeva Doornbosg secretary-treasurer, Mary Jo Staley. The Boys, Glee Club, under the direction of Miss McGee, has enjoyed a successful year. This organization has taken part in many school functions. The club sang at the Hi-Y and G. R. Christmas service and at several assemblies. The soloists were Fay Buckner, bass: Eugene Griffith, second tenorg and Jim Mather, first tenor. The officers who presided were Jim Ma- ther, presidentg Eugene Griffith, Vice-pres- identg Paul Cox, secretary, and Bob Brent- linger, orderly. Other members were Wayne Akins, Jim Dunham, Howard Murphy, Frank Ohmart, Norman Paul, Davon Pierce, Bud Smith, and Don Lindley. 5. Band The year 1942 draws to a close and the El Dorado High School Band, Linder the leadership of our very ca- pable conductor, Ralph Wallingford, is completing a most successful year. The band furnished music lending pep and enthusiasm at the football and basketball games. It also played several enjoyable assembly programs. A highlight of the year was the Band- Orchestra banquet May 7. Another outstanding feature of the band this year was the youth of its members. With the exception of a few seniors it was composed entirely of younger students. Thus, much may be ex- pected from them in future years. Due to the war and following tire shortage, the band was not entered in the annual musical contests. The officers this year were as follows: President, Marvin McPhersong vice- president, Helen Ralstong secretary- treasurer, Gerry Wallace. Orcbesfra The orchestra is that group which possessed some of the more musical students. They have daily filled our halls with lilting melodies and sym- phonies of Bach and Beethoven. Now the year is coming to a close but memories never to be forgot- ten by these young musicians will linger on. This year, under the capable direction of Mr. Ralph Wal- lingford, the orchestra has been most successful. During the season the orchestra played three pub- lic concerts to large appreciative audiences. The highlight of the year was the annual orchestra and band banquet, a beautiful spring affair. The offi- cers of the orchestra are: president, Mary Ruth Murray, vice president, Marjorie Cooperg secre- tary-treasurer, Penelope Pappas. rf , mv ,fQg,5vr WILDCAT SCRATCI-IES FIRST YEAR EL DORADO HIGH SCHOOL FINAL EDITION Newly Formed WILDCAT SCRATCHES STAFF Journalism Club ls Big Success For many years EHS was one of the few schools of its size without a school paper. Then, in October of 1941, a Journalism Club was form- ed. It consisted of a select 40 representing Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores. Seldom does a club in its infancy display such fire- works as the Journalism Club. Its members proved that they meant business when they edited a success- ful sheet in the Butler County News one week af- ter their first meeting. This weekly paper im- proved with every edition and the members never lost their enthusiasm and desire to make :Wildcat Scratches' a success. The staff which was un- animously re-clected at the semester were: Editor, Pat Harnettg Jr. Associate Ed- itor, Bob Marshall, Sopho- m ore Associate Editor, Charles McCaI-ter. The club secretary was Mary Jo Sta- leyg treasurer, Cavita Thu- mag and the sponsor, whose advice and ideas were in- valuable, Mr. Smith. The typing was efficiently hand- led by Virginia Coffman, Margaret McHarg' and Mary Eva Brown. Many contributions were made by students not in the A Weekly Review of School Thought and Action.

Advisor The group pictured above is comprised of the Journalism Club of El Dorado High School, who are responsible for the publication of the Wildcat Scratches. club through a press box made by Wilson Dickson which was placed in the of- fice. The chief aim of the pa- per was to print as much as possible about as many as possible, to be interesting to all in the school, and to truly represent EHS activi- ties. The outstanding edition of the year entitled "Senior Edition" was printed by the Seniors Of the club and car- ried pictures of the ten stu- dents voted to be the most outstanding in the graduat- ing class and a cartoon drawn by Jimmy Mather. For a beginner paper the "Wildcat Scratches" was a success and contributed much to the school spirit. Forex: bs The debate group this year has had its share of victories and defeats. El Dorado took third in three tournaments and fourth in one. Perhaps the greatest gain was made in the Enid, Oklahoma, tournament which was the second tournament attended during the season. At this debate, Ervin Grant and Dick Schmidt took third place out of more than one hundred teams from three states. The other students who participated in de- bate this year were Harold Steadham, Peggy Rae Fite, Dorothy Ewing, Dave Clymer, Leon Copeland, Frances Brown, Barbara Rockwood, Gene Gladfelter, Mary Eva Brown, Dorothy Straubinger, Mary Krifte- wirth, Ruth Murry, Bob Gilkeson, Kelley Caldwell, and Charles Pendleton. The forensics group entered many other events besides debate. Frank Jensen en- tered after-dinner speaking at Ark City and gained the distinction of speaking before the assembled group of debaters. Dick Schmidt entered radio speech at Enid, and Peggy Fite and Mary Kriftewirth entered extempora- neous speaking: while Ervin Grant entered oration. Dick Schmidt gained distinction at the Wichita meet, tying for first speaker in the tournament. At the Ark Valley Speech Festival Frank Jensen won second in after- dinner speaking, Dick Schmidt won third in orationg and Ruth Murry won fourth in de- clamation. Most of the credit for getting the El- Dorado teams through the season goes to Mr. Henderson. Not only has he helped the debaters build air tight cases, but he has be- come a loyal friend of every member of the debate group. Debate without Henderson would be like eggs without ham.

A ,:.,., WW HH' ' During this year sixty boys pledged themselves "to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character" by join- ing the Hi-Y. This group of boys have met weekly for programs. Various speakers have told things Worth while on numerous subjects. In several meetings, the boys dis- cussed such timely subjects as community betterment, Christian attitude toward aliens, Pan-American relations, and manners. Other programs were made up of music and light entertainment. VVe have enjoyed several social activities, such as a chili feed with a party and group attendance at a show. But the oustanding social activity of the year was the sweet- heart's banquet on February 14. Together with the G. R. the Hi-Y as a service pro- ject distributed baskets to needy families at Thanksgiving time. Each year during summer vacation the El Dorado H-Y sends representatives to Camp Wood near Elmdale, Kansas. There the boys learn how to assume leadership in their club and community. They have good times participating in varied outdoor sports, including boating, swimming, tennis and horseback riding. The club was represented at several conferences during the school year. The pur- pose of these conferences is to train officers and to aid the boys in character develop- ment. Every organization must have funds to operate. The Hi-Y and G. R. cooperated in sales of candy, sandwiches, coffee, etc., at games, parties and in corridors. The officers for the year were the following: President Charles Fullinwiderg vice-president and program chairman, Ross Laybourng secretary, James Coffmang treasurer, John Oliverg devotions chairman, Bob Reigleg social service chairman, Bob Dickg world brotherhood chairman, Ross Walkerg and publicity chairman, Charles McCa1ter. Mr. E. G. Dick and Mr. Allen Shaffcr were our faithful sponsors. 67' I Re erve Introducing El Dorado High Schoolls largest organization, the Girl Reserves, which was composed this year of 175 girls. G. R. has contributed much to the spiritual and soc- ial life of the school and community during the past nine months. The year started off with a grand get-acquainted party for all members. At Thanksgiving time the G. R. joined with the Hi-Y in sponsoring the bringing of food and the delivery of baskets to twenty-one needy families. The next activity was the annual Christmas party at which a group of underprivileged children were entertained. In February every one joined in the exchange of Valentine lovenotes with friends and classmates. The climax of the social year arrived March tenth when the Mother and Daughter banquet was held and pronounced a great success. In January eight girls attended the Conference at Augus- ta and came home brimming over with new ideas. Throughout the year the G. R. with the Hi-Y sold candy or refreshments at school and at athletic events. The G. R. enjoyed many fine weekly meetings, readings, instrumental and vocal solosg panel discussions, guest speakers, and sing-togethers both alone and with the Hi-Y. This sum- mer as in the past the G. R. will help pay the expenses of a small group of its mem- bers who will enjoy a week at Camp Wood. CABINET MEMBERS President .............. Peggy Rae Fite Vice President ............

F. A. is organized for the purpose of teaching boys the most scientific and economical way to farm. Since El Dorado is lo- cated in one of the greatest agri- cultural districts of America, it is only natural that our organization is a successful one. One of our outstanding achieve- ments is a cooperative hog raising project which gives the boys an opportunity to start a good enter- prise with little cost and which is a source of profit to the Chapter. At the beginning of the year we had 50 boys enrolled in agriculture with a total number of 114 enter- prises with stock and equipment inventoried at a net worth of 569,800.00 Four big spring contests are held for the judging of crops, poul- try, and livestock. A shop team has also developed which competed in the state contest. The Chapter is aiding in the de- fense program by putting all pos- sible money in defense stamps, urging that all boys Who can, en- roll in a First Aid Class offered at the school, and requiring that exch boy repair a farm implement in our shop. This repair Work aids the farm labor problem and does away with the purchase of new parts. The F. F. A. is a fine organization and much of its suc- cess is due to Mr. Jesse Cooper, instructor of agriculture. few -.gQg,5sx'9lf Sober?

K Gmc Glflflfelfw' In K6 A Red Peppers The Red Pepper Club leads the girls' cheering section of El Dorado High School. This organization represents pep, enthus- iasm, vitality, vigor, and above all true sportsmanship. It backs the team at all times. After several years the membership has grown to 148. The girls are elected by the popularity vote of the girls in their respec- tive classes. We now elect 30 new sopho- mores, 20 juniors and 20 seniors, each year. We always take a complete day and part of the night in initiating the new members. During the initiation the new members wore outlandish costumes and a good time was had by all. We added an honorary member to our club this year-our mascot, little Miss Joan Royer. She dressed the same as the rest of us and took our kitten to the center of the court before basketball games. Several times we ate at the New York restaurant, before games, and made our- selves at home by yelling and singing school songs. We made money for our spring ban- quet by sponsoring a box supper and dance. The lovely banquet was worth the effort which was put in on it. The one who deserves all the credit for having such a wonderful organization in old E. H. S. is Hazel Flaherty. She has always been a faithful and swell sponsor. The officers for the past year were: President, Marjorie Cooper, vice president, Nancy Schrepferg secretary, Doris Doane: treasurer, Nancy Berry, manager, Gertrude Stone. The E-Club, where We find the muscle-men of our school, includes many of those vvho protect the honor of old EHS. It's members triumph for us on the gridiron, the basketball court, and the cinder track- in fact, in every field of athletics. The E-Club, this year, has been one of the most active in the school's history. First came the initiation of the new foot- ball players. The E-Club members were ushers at the regional basketball tournament, the first in El Do- rado. The joint E-Club and varsity dance was a decided success and vvas the only semi-formal dance of the year. The an- nual E-Club banquet was a gala affair. The tables were decorated with minia- ture basketball, football, track and golf settings. The captains of each team spoke, and each girl was given a rose bud. The able officers this year were Bud Cole, orderly, Dick Shields, secretaryg Leon Copeland, vice-president, and Jim Mather, president. f'-wi Qias l 5 i 57594, -Q , if G .3 , fa Y T " Q A my ? fr'+ ,, ?

Howard Kelly '44f2i' Floyd Holmes '43:ff Willis Neal Co 00 Tile 6'rM1' on Completing the season's pigskin parade, the Wildcats of El Dorado High were trium- phant in four gridiron battles, lost four and tied one. The brawny bruisers, under the most able guidance of Willis Neal, finished fourth in the annual Ark Valley race. The El- Doradoans outgained their opponents in yard- age about two to one, The final game marked sadness in the hearts of many graduating sen- iors, but they will have many memories which they will hold throughout the rest of their lives. After a slow but deliberate start, the Wild- cats started the ball rolling by scoring their first win over Ark City, in a smashing victory 28 to 6. Before this time they played two games, first against Emporia, which ended with El Do- rado on the short end of a 7 to 6 score, the second was taken by the powerful North eleven by a score of 24 to 6. These losses turned the Wildcats from a green inexperienced team to a fighting eleven which enabled them to de- feat Ark City by such a large score. The fol- lowing week-end the Wildcats lost a heart- breaker to Wichita East's Blue Aces, 14 to 25. Defeated but not discouraged, after this loss, they visited the Eureka Tornadoes, and gave them a complete going over in a mud bath spe- cial, trouncing them 25 to 0. Against the pow- erful Newton Railroaders, they held their own in a snow-soaked battle to a 12 to 12 tie. The next two games were a busman's holiday for the veteran Wildcats when they scored wins over Augusta, 34 to 0, and Hutchinson, 35 to 0. These wins led up to the last game which turn- ed out to be far from a Sunday school picnic, they encountered the league leading Welling- ton Crusaders and fell short of their goal by a score of 19 to 39. , sm uiaullsmlnnnnQ ave Clymer '42iC Charles Mason '42t Marvin McPherson '42tf Ross Layburn '42i: Dick Lee '43t Verlan Shearburn '43i: Charles Camp '42f:t Roy Cole '42W Capt. Leon Copeland '42i't Jim Mather '42tt Dick Shields '42i't Dan Blaine Denotes Years Lettered This gave the Wildcats a better season than that of the year before. Much credit is due to the coaching of Willis Neal, who in his first year as the Wildcat mentor compiled a cred- itable record against the toughest campetition in the state. Neal was well liked by all the members of the squad. Not only did he know his football, but he was a friend of the boys. During moments of relaxation, he made them feel that football was not all work. We are sorry for the underclassmen that they are los- ing such a fine fellow to the Junior College, but we hope that with their new coach, they will build a winning ball club and forever carry high the banner of E. H. S. The team this year was greatly bolstered by the line plunging of Gravel Truck Kelly, the brilliant field running of Harold Caro and Floyd Holmes, the able guidance of Capt. Leon Copeland, the smart quarterbacking of Dick Shields, and the carrying out of assignments by very capable line men. Special distinction was awarded to Copeland, who was named on the All-State Second Team and on the All Ark- Valley First Stringg and also to Shields and Kelly by receiving berths on the All Ark Val- ley second squad. The annual football banquet, which was served to members of the squad and their fathers and guests, was a highlight of the sea- son. Dick Lee and Floyd Holmes were chosen co-captains for the '42 season and award certi- ficates were presented to the lettermen. We accredit Dan Blaine, as being the most rabid fan throughout the season and thank him for the amount of interest he showed in the boys. ls x 1,5 wg? f osx If ffyv . 00 ffze 600 1 Despite the ineligibility of one player, Wildcat Basketeers showed real ability 2 doubtlessly might have finished high in State Tournament. This squad thought to only a fair team in the early part of the s son, later offered the toughest competition any team in the state and in an ultim splurge advanced to the semi-finals. It is lieved that El Dorado could have overco Newton in the state finals, because the te had shown a brilliant performance against Railroaders in the Regional Tourname. Many boys on the squad this year are sop mores, who promise to be good material Coach "Red" Royer next year. fan WQXZST 2.

A 11 1 Do wa the Fairway Golf this year did not prove to be a popular sport with many boys. However there were some Wildcat golf enthusiasts who were ready and willing to take on some of the meets. Al- though they failed to place in many of these meets, we know that these boys are capable of doing great things on the golf course. Captain Jim Eastham, Bud Cole, Gaines Bell, Haven Kelly, Don Scholler and Bob Maloney were members of this year's team. The lack of entrants in tennis caused the school to dis- miss this sport. 00 flze finders The Wildcat Trackmen, under the coach- ing of Willis Neal, were very consistent throughout the season. Backed by Captain Harold Caro and Pieratt Johnson, this group placed high in many meets. At the beginning of the season, some thirty men reported for workout. This formed the neucleus of the squad. Neal took most of these boys to the first meet of the season, the Fredonia Relays. Here El Dorado placed third. Also two new records were established by Caro in the high jump, 6 ft. Sfyj, in., Johnson in the half mile, time 2:05. Shields took first in the 100 yard dash. K. U. Relays-Represented here by only two trackmen, Caro and Johnson, this pair scored enough points to finish tenth. Caro took the high jump and finished third in the broad jump for eight of the nine points scored by El Dorado. The other point came by virtue of Johnson's fifth in the half mile. El Dorado Invitational - Because of the fact that the Wildcats strength was in Law- rence, the homelings tried their best in their own meet. This was taken by Winfield, with El Dorado fourth. Emporia Relays-Here El Dorado took top honors with 6816 points, 13Vz points ahead of the runnerup, Emporia. Again Caro showed his ability to the field by taking first in the high jump and second in the broad jump. The half mile was taken by Johnson, and both the high and low hurdles by Holmes. Kelly placed first in the shot put and the jave- lin throw. Eligibility trouble followed this meet and the first place cup was returned to Emporia. Ark Valley-Again paced by El Do- rado leading point makers, Caro and Johnson, the Wildcats captured fifth in this meet. Caro again won the high jump, with Johnson win- ning the half mile. Regionals-This meet was held at Eureka, with El Dorado finishing fourth from the top. Points were again scored with Caro taking the high jump and scoring second in the broad jump with Johnson finish- ing second in the half mile. State - With just two entries, Caro and Johnson, El Dorado did very well indeed by finishing tenth. In this meet Caro tied for first, and Johnson ran a 2:03 half mile for first. Much credit is due to the track team as a whole, they experienced a good season. There were many outstanding members of this year's team, but two who carried their share of the load and more were Caro and Johnson. With Gaines Bell as Captain next year, we know that El Dorado will again be well represented at every meet it attends. ifzrougb the "All Seelhg Eye" It's the year 1952. Having donned our seven-league boots, the El Doradoan staff steps into the middle of Tibet. Charles Fullinwider, world famous as a doctor among the Tibetans, has discovered the Temple of the "All-Seeing-Eye." and in true "Mystic" style foretells the future.
