To all of us our home town is a friendly, progressive community of open-minded, Wide-awake citizens-the kind of men and women who consider it their responsibility to help us over the many problems of life. Here young' people are understood and encour- aged rather than neglected and criticized as is the case in some communities. VVe take this opportunity to extend our deepest appreciation to those who have shown that they are interested in the young citizens of our community and to those who have given most that We might have the best chance for success and happiness. Our sin- cere thanks are also extended to those Whose patience. understanding, and guidance have helped to make us better citizens and individuals. To all these-we, the '49ers, dedicate this-our memory book of 1949. 4 H. C. Cornwell Directm' of Student Acfirities J. F.

With the acceptance of our diplomas as a reward for our efforts, we will now begin to work our claims in earnest. In our search for knowledge the questions of whether these years have seemed short, with each day bringing us new adventures and interesting experiences, or if this period has seemed dull and endless, can be answered only by each individual. A backward glance is proof enough that we 49'ers haven't been idle. We have won more than our share of honors in athletics, agriculture, forensics, music and scholarship, not to mention the various other activities in which we participated. Now at last, our goal has been achieved-graduation. As we, the Senior Class of 1949, view our past, we have a sense of accomplishment and pride in a job Well done. 8 Melvyn David Abels Russell Ralph Abraham Byron Adkison Erma Bernice Anderson Charles Duane Auer Nona May Ball Lorrain Barkley Don Eugene Beam Norma Jean Bennett George F.

With state of seniorhood just around the corner, these juniors are even now preparing for their grand showing in 1950. This promising class has been highly active, excolling in all fields. With the pep and enthusasm they have shown, we know that their last year will be an outstanding one.

Glass of IQSQ Now we present the lowly freshmen. Despite the fact that these underprivileged characters have had to bear the brunt of insignificance, their spirits have remained high. The accomplishments of this up-and-coming class in the many phases of school life can- not be overlooked. And with the initiative and zeal these freshmen possess, we are con- fident they will continue to carry on the aims and traditions of E. H.

Under the direction of our president, Rudy Dietrich, some of the numerous events sponsored have been school parties, especially the successful barn dance, "Help the Children" fund, and a large bon-fire and pep-rally held in sup- port of the football team. At the first of each year a vice-president is elected from the Junior Class. He auto- matically becomes president next year. This year Jim Barber was elected to the office. Jane Murray was elected secretary, and Duane Graham, treasurer for both semesters. Each home room is represented by a mem- ber who is elected for one semester. Through the guidance of Mr. Cornwell, a grand job of leading and democratic representation can be credited to these, our student councilors.

This group of lads who have banded to- gether under the name "E-Club" are actually a group of Wildcat lettermen who have organized for fun and real fellow- ship, Good sportsmanship and friend- ship are stressed in this he-man's club which has become traditional in E. H. S. The annual initiation for new members is always one of the highlights of the school year. New members are always plentiful when this day rolls around, for the rousing good times shared by E-Club members are too much to pass up. Throughout the year, the club, under the direction of Sponsor Jim McDonald, stages various events for its members and in- terested non-members. Several sports Hollis, Butterworth, McMillan, Holladay, Kilgore 5-Club films are shown to the public each year. The annual E-Club Banquet, which is held in May for members and their dates, is perhaps the outstanding E-Club event of the year. This year the hard-playing faculty boys lost out to the E-Club cage crew in the traditional E-Club-Faculty game. The E-Club is one of the finest groups in a school in which outstanding organizations are the rule rather than the exception. The following officers were elected for the 1948-49 term: Calvin McMillan, presi- dent, Bill Butterworth, vice president, Roy Wilson, secretary, Rudy Dietrich, treasurer, Bob Holladay, sergeant-at arms.

The Red Peppers have indeed been an active group of girls this year. You could have seen the colorful association out on the gridiron many a Friday night, as they urged our boys on to the final minute of each encounter. Later, when basketball season rolled around and became the center of interest, they displayed themselves in the gym- nasium with even greater vigor and en- thusiasm. The social highlight of the year was the Christmas dance sponsored by the Red Peppers. Climaxing the entire year's activities was the annual Pep Club banquet.

After close races, Don Beam's American League champions defeated Al Kilg0re's National League winners by a score of 25-20. Whether they won or not, the program was enjoyed by all the boys who took part. Heiicafs The "cream of the crop" is the phrase to describe the Hellcat Intramural Team. Chosen by Jim McDonald, these boys represent the best players of the National and American Leagues.

The achievements of this band are due to the cooperation of the entire band, and to the executive leader- ship of the following officers: Jerry Demo, president, Bill Hollis, vice-presi- dentg and Mary Jo Dannenfelser, secre- tary-terasurer. Whenever we want to generate pep or enthusiasm for an all-import- ant game, play, or any other school activity, we ask our pep band to lend a hand. We know that they can al- ways be counted on to produce all the snappy music of the right kind and proper volume that's needed to arouse interest in the event. When our spirits lag or our pep weakens, the pep band is there to lift us to our feet and start our hands clapping to the tempo of fast stepping music. 4 ll Dannenfelser, Moore, Riggs, Hatton, Purcell This year Professor R. W. Wallingford concentrated on string choir, bringing in the brass and woodwinds for fortification in contest and other public performances. Preparations for the annual spring contest nearly caused our stout-hearted conductor's downfall, but backed whole- heartedly by Miss Jeanette Barbour, ex- pert on strings and voice, he survived very well, thank you. Ofzclzesffza Helping wherever possible in the realm of the band room were three adorable individuals without whom Mr. Walling- ford would have been perfectly happy in two instances, and completely lost in the third. These light-headed little people were Mary Jo Osborn, president, Merle Heitman, vice-president fthe first two instancesjg and Marjorie Ruckert, secre- tary-treasurer fthe third instancej.

Our school paper, the "Wildcat Yowls," published in The Butler County News, is under the supervision of the Journalism Class and sponsor, George Shaffer. The members of the staff have worked hard and have tried to put out a well- rounded paper which is interesting to our students and to journalism classes of other schools to which the paper is sent. Above all they tried to keep from making the paper a mere gossip sheet and tried to withhold anything which they deemed harmful to the character of any of our students. They have worked faithfully in trying to write a paper which would prove inter- esting to everyone and would be a little better every week. owmalism It is the sincere hope of the journalism class that those who have charge of the paper next year will strive to make the "Wildcat Yowls" a paper of which E. H. S. can be proud. The staff is composed of the follow- ing: Joanne Walter, edfitor-in-chiefg George Reynolds, assistant editor, Bar- bara Blankenship, business manager, Mak Smith and Calvin McMillan, feature ed- itors, George Berry and Dick Crist, sports editors, Leann Chapman, Connie Creswell, and Charlotte Shook, typistsg Jerry Rob- bins, Jean Andrus, Virginia Sweeney, Calvin Bigler, Bonnie Bowers, Mary Jo Dannenfelser, Charles Hudson, Jean Bell, and Mary Jo Osborn, reporters. eniofi Glass Cooperation and capability distinguished the success of the Senior Class Play, "Out of the Frying Pan," presented by the class of '49, directed by George Shaffer.

This comedy, which was a 1948 copyright, was written by Roland Fernand and was under the direction of George Shaffer. The characters were aptly portrayed by Patsy Holmstrom, Phyllis DeLano, Jetta Purcell, Phyllis Riggs, Virginia Smith, Kay Moore, Jean Bell, Becky Breese, Mar- garet Pennington, Marjorie Miller, Larry Riggs, Jim Barber, Bill Moore, and Richard Houston. Gerry Buhler and Jack Scott Were assistants. i-........, 5 44 ol1.gzL...l pf., Whenever success is wanted in a play, just call on Mr. Shaffer as director and representatives from all three classes as was done for the production of the All-School Play, "Yours Until Tomorrow."

Delmte Once again our debate squad has achieved numerous honors in competition with the top teams of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. "Resolved: That the United Nations now be revised into a federal world government" was this year's national high school debate proposition. The El Dorado squad entered the Emporia, Hutchinson, Russell, and annual Ark Valley tournaments and earned second place awards in each. In most cases our squad was well on the way toward winning the first place trophy only to be edged by the Winning team. McMillan, Bigler, Demo, and Matheny won first in the District and thereby quali- fied for the State Debate Tournament at Lawrence. In the state meet, they ranked seventh in wins and second in speaker ranking. Next year's record is expected to be as outstanding as this and last year's record, for the beginners and next year's seniors will carry on the splendid debate traditions of E. H. S. 46 Back Row: Bielefeldt, Hol- lis, Mr. Shaffer, Holm- strom Middle: Moore, Breese, Bar- ber, Bell Front: McMillan, D e m 0, Matheny, Daniels, Bigler glreec The speech department of E. H.

The Ark Valley Festival gave us a hard-fought tie for second place. To top the year, four students-Becky Brefse, Jerry Demo, David Matheny, and Ber- nice Daniel--qualified for the State Festival.
