Through the years the Class of '51 has been outstanding
in the fields of scholarship, agriculture, forensics, athletics,
and music. Besides this the seniors have taken an active
part in the various youth organizations and clubs.
After four years of extensive study in various fields,
these students are looking forward with mingled feelings to
receiving their diplomas. The students regret leaving E. H. S.
yet they anticipate the fulfilling of their dreams.
"You, the class of '51
Can take great pride in work well done!
To E. H. S. you'll say goodbyg
Before you, great adventures lie."

The 1950-51 Student Council has successfully carried out
its duties under the able direction of its president, Bill John-
son, and its sponsor, Mr. Staerkel. Gene Elder was the vice
president, Dorothy Schmidt, the secretary: and Jack Wichers,
The Council planned numerous student activities, such
as all-school square dances, concession stands at some of the
football and basketball games, projects for raising money for
the library redecoration fund, affiliation with the Butler
County UNESCO, and the management of a W.P.A. Week.
The new method of electing the vice president was per-
haps the most important governmental change made during
the year. This new method requires student registration and
provides election booths for voting.
"The Student Council is the school's
Governing body. It makes the rules,
Suggests new projects, plans for fun-
Thanks, Council, for a job well done."

ing parties. and other forms of recreation.
The club is proud of four members-Ed Chase. Clifton Patty, Ken Schmidt, and

ful gridiron season in years-a season in

doans second place. Don Feller and Larry
Hartshorn were placed on the mythical
All-State team. Don was also given honor-
able mention on the Little All-American
team. On the Ark Valley first team were
Don Parry and Ben Dalton in addition to
Feller and Hartshorn. The third Ark Valley
team had McKown 1359, Guthrie 1375,

With the coming of spring a large number of boys turned out for track. So far
this season the boys have made a good showing, under the able coaching of Galen
Blackmore and Harold Bryan. They placed third in the Wichita University Invita-
tional Meet and first in the quadrangular meet held here. At Wichita Don Feller set a
new record in pole vault. Additional meets which the track boys will cuter are the
K.U. Relays, Hutchinson Invitational, Ark Valley, Regionals, and State. BQQAYYL'

TENNIS GOLF ob mi ,Wm Lei' 4M
For the first time in several years,
El Dorado has increased its spring
sports curriculum to include tennis.
Naturally, since this is comparatively
new on the sports agenda, the netters
are not expected to make an outstand-
ing showing their first year, but it is
believed that the boys will, neverthe-
less, give a good account for themselves
and at the same time gain valuable
experience. As we go to press, the
"racketeers" have not competed in any
matches, but a tentative schedule in-
cludes matches with Augusta, Newton,
Emporia, Winfield, Arkansas City, and
the Ark Valley, Regional, and State
For the first time in a number of
years El Dorado is represented on the
golf links. Although only six boys
turned out for the team, all six will be
back next year. Under Coach Bill Hill
the golfers practice daily at the Amer-
ican Legion and Country Club courses
and hold their meets at the latter place.
The Wildcats entered meets at Ark
City, and Wichita. the Ark-Valley tour-
nament, and others.
