An old way of late as now enclang forthe I957
Senaors and a new wcay as gust begannang
Thas new way of late wall brang hardsnaps and
the responsabalaty of beang future leaders but the
hardshaos wall never outnumber the rappaness that
wall come from beang mothers and fatners
Some of the boys wall contanue tlnear schoolang
others wall go anto busaness, some anto the Armed
Forces A few garls wall go onto col ege, others
wall get marraed
Senaors hagh school years have been falled wath
many memorable experaences that wall remaan wath
them throughout tlsear laves
Throughout the past year the Senaors of l957
have achaeved an outstandang record for themselves
ana wall contanue to do so an future years

The 1957 orchestra has added musical variety, talent,
and honor to E.H.S.'S hall of fine arts.
At the annual district musical contest the orchestra
received superior ratings. The members who performed
solo or trio returned with more superior ratings than any
other group participating in the contest.
Having also performed exceptionally well during
school assemblies, concerts, and at Baccalaureate and
Senior Class Commencement Exercises, each and every
member proved his unusual abilities under the able
direction of their respected director, Ralph Wallingford.

E.H.S. is very proud of its fine band, which symbolizes the constant beat of
success ringing throughout the school.
The band has created a peppy and vigorous atmosphere during the football and
basketball games this year with bouncing tunes and lively marches.
At the official opening of the Kansas Turnpike the band received an invitation
to demonstrate its unusual talents at the head of a large parade.
ln the spring the band gathered up the drums, cymbals, and brass, climbed aboard
a chartered bus, and headed for the district contest. Late in the evening a bus load
of highly superior ratings retumed home with the students. The trip had proven worthy
of their efforts.
To top off an outstanding year of success and honor the band presented an
exceptionally fine concert.
E.H.S. is well aware that the band's success is the result of the headaches and
tireless efforts of that never failing "little man of great wonders," Director Mr.

different paper filled with new and Interesting features
Wlth the purchase of a multllnth machine the Crier was printed cheaper, an less time, and
much more efficiently These conveniences made lt easier for the Crier staff to publish longer
and better articles, making the 1957 Crler superior to those In the past
A six page paper, eleven mches hugh and eight and one half mches wlde, allowed plenty
of space for E H S S eye catchlng news, attractive editorials, colorful features, llvely sports
and lust for fun articles
Having found the Crier so full of fun, thrills, Interest, and color as well as educational
literature, E H S students pay tribute to the Crier staff of 1957 for a paper well published

The tumbling and wrestling teams are
instructed by Mr. McDonald, who has proved
his worthiness many times this year as his "boys"
brought in the honors.
The tumbling team performed stunts of grace
and skill at the half of basketball games and
during tumbling exhibitions throughout the
year. They lived through many a tumble, but
always returned until the feat was accomplished
The same is true for the wrestling team.
Bump and bruise ignored, these he-men
captured many crowns in return for their efforts.
May each succeeding year be as healthfull

The Wildcats posted a record ot three wins and five loses with ten games left to play as
this annual went to press.
As always the Wildcats showed unusual adaptability, swiftness, effort, team work, and
sportsmanship. lt was these qualities which enabled the Wildcats to win second place in the
West High Invitational Tournament, January 18 and l9.
Downing Kapaun 58 to 55 the Wildcats returned to challenge the Wichita West Pioneers
for the crown. The boys fought well and hard, leading in the first half by one point. The lead
in the second half was unsteady with one team, then the other leading by a few points. The
Wildcats raced across the court .... the score was tied with a minute to go. In the last seven
seconds of the game the Wildcats fouled twice. Making three free throws out of a possible
four, the Pioneers won the game with a three point lead of 66 to 63. However, a new trophy
was added to E.H. S. 'S show case of sports honors for winning second place in the tournament.
Outstanding senior players on the Wildcat line-up included: Morgan Metcalf, high point
man, Gary Fowler, an exceptional rebounder, Galen Unger, an A-l shot, and Ron McGraw,
the Wildcat's most capable passer.
E.H.S. is proud of its athletes and appreciates the tireless efforts of Coach Emmett Breen
