The class of 1954, having ended one struggle, is now ready to attack
another. They are beginning a new life.
Twelve years ago these students started to school with stars in their
eyes and a carefree attitude toward the world. As they leave E. H. S.
they take upon their shoulders the many responsibilities that adult life
brings forth. The boy's, some continuing their schooling, others taking
their places in the business world and others joining the armed forces,
are all a great asset to this world. The girls also taking their places in
this world are ready to meet any problems that may confront them.
The class of '54 has been outstanding in music, art, sports, forensics
and scholarships. This class is one of which E. H. S. can be proud of now
and in the years to come.

activities of this class are many and varied. A number rated
high in music and forensic events, as well as in scholarship
and athletics. We know that this class will carry their pep and

The 1954 Tongue-Waggers had a highly successful season. Of 248
debates they won 160 and lost only 88. The group participated in tourn-
aments at Ft. Scott, Atchinson, Winfield, Topeka, Hutchinson, Emporia,
Garden City, Wyandotte, and Haven. El Dorado had their own invita-
tional tournament. A four-speaker team consisting of Terry Sellards
and Bob Evans, affirmative, and Gary Bracken and Joe Schrengohst,
negative, placed third in the district tournament at Wichita. Third place
trophies were won at the Russell, Topeka, and Emporia tournaments.

The Senior Class presented a dramatic mystery entitled "Kind Lady".
Muriel Golobay, portraying Mary Harries, the "Kind Lady", who is a
very wealthy art collector, is held a prisoner in her own home by a
very ingenious crook, John Harrison, and his accomplaces, Joyce
Klintworth, Terry Gladfelter, Connie Beauregard and Billie Jo Harms.
Barbara Nelson played the maid who definitely did not trust the "Too
good looking John. "
Lenea Boucher, Jack Crumrine, Joan VanBeber, Robert Patterson,
Paul Gilmore, Leihl Ogan, and Bill Auer all helped in completing a fine
cast. The success of the play would have been impossible without the
fine directing of Miss Doris Falen.
The rousing comedy "Two Blind Mice" was presented by the Junior
Class, was enjoyed by a large audience. This play centered around two
little old ladies who were in charge of the office of medicinal herbs,
which had been abolished years before. Not only do they get the govern-
ment into a mess, they are invited to have tea at the white house. Hats
off to a fine cast for a fine play!!

tying two the Wildcats ended an outstanding year. When the Ark-Valley league
finished, the Wildcats ended in a third place tie. Holding their opponents to a
total score of 100 while the Cats grabbed 167. The Wildcats defense did as well
as the offense. On the strength of tying the Ark City Bulldogs, Coach McCollum

El Dorado Wildcats as we went to press had already accomplished a
fine season finishing sixth in the Ark-Valley. Seniors on the team were
Vernon Orndorff, who led El Dorado scoring, Dave Dennis, the team
sparkplug, Jack Jackard, the team's center and most injured player,
Marc McLean, who took Jack's place while injured and later became a
starter, and Dick Loban, who was always a constant threat to the starters.
The finish was the highest since the 1942-1943 season.
