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-

X Part of year only
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.

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
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.

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!

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
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
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
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
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-
The Junior Class is the seventh heaven
for Dan Cupid with such mighty two-
somes as Cox-Wolfe-Holmes-McClure--
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.

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.
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.
FIRST YEAR EL DORADO HIGH SCHOOL FINAL EDITION
Newly Formed WILDCAT SCRATCHES STAFF
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'
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

led by Virginia Coffman,

For a beginner paper the
"Wildcat Scratches" was a
success and contributed
much to the school spirit.
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

the Wichita meet, tying for first speaker in

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.

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
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-
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

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.

The F. 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
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.

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
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
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
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.

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.

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

State Tournament. This squad thought to
only a fair team in the early part of the s

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

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
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.
