It has, however, been our aim to put together in permanent and accessible form those things which, when time has made it difficult, will help us recall the faces of friends who cheered us when discouraged, and the incidents which re- lieved the monotony of recurring duties, little items which will help us to live again among the scenes and hear the words which made our years so happy here. ln short, we have endeavored to give you a treasured souvenir of the "good ole high school days."

'VM X ' NM . :qw EL PASO ,HIGH SCHOOL El Paso High School, the school on the side of the hill, has stood thru the years giving more and more to each student who enters it, and establishing in its course of time, new traditions that will for- ever live with the school. To a school such as ours, no person could deny it faithfulness. We feel that it is our goal when we begin as Freshmen, that it is our desire as we progress to Sophomores, that it is our ambition as we step forward to Juniors, and that it is a part of us when we step into Seniorship. Then as we are graduated, the school becomes a past so vivid it seems to be the present. Never do we leave the school, for life is a complete school of learning. All who are educated in the El Paso High School feel the binding power and surging school spirit that prevails in it and its surroundings. Our school was first located in what is now known as The Elks Club, later being moved to the school now called Morehead. The present location was completed in l9l6 and is rated as one of the finest schools in the Southwest. The stadium, with a capacity of l0,000, is named the Sun Bowl. The honors which have been bestowed on our school are too numerous to account for in detail. Our students, loving their school, have worked earnestly to give recognition and glory to this insti- tution which although many have graduated, is still endeared in their hearts. ln any educational institute, school spirit backs all, accomplishes all and is the basis of all enterprises successfully undertaken. By school spirit we mean the feeling which surges within us pushing us ahead to better things, making our goal seem nearer to us, arousing in us a new will to attain it, and lastly giving us the never-failing courage to put our school at the top. All visitors who enter the school find that they are no longer visitors but practically one of us. Meaning by that that they are made to feel accustomed to their surroundings and join in activities other than as spectators. lt is a known fact to all visitors of the relationship between students and faculty. Mutual courtesies and friendliness are excelled nowhere. Students, it would be hard to find a school to compare with ours, so if by chance, you haven't done so, before-LOOK UP TO YOUR SCHOOL-it's here to help you. Be loyal Tigers, to fight and to gain for the El Paso High School TIGER SLOGAN- "One for All-All for One" I151 UV:-A un, LW l' fL.,.LLwnM..-S.. ml-4--Nm BMQJJWW 'yi-M.w..w.,.........

It is the first part of the schbol to which the new student is introduced. Tosome it may seem a fearful place to enter, for an office has an important sound at- tached to itg but to others it means a place to secure help and adkfice. Our feeling of friendship for the office increases as we live and learn. It is there that much is done by lvlrs. Byrnes and Mrs. Aycock to clarify uncertainties and lessen perplexities. To talk to Mrs. Byrnes, our Registrar and Business Administrator, is to become acquainted with a sweet smile, a brilliant mind and a willingness always to lend a helping hand. She can say "no" as pleasantly as she says "yes," and if you're interested, she never fails to balance the credit and debit columns of all irregular finances. lvlrs. Aycock, assistant to Mr. Jones, is ever on hand to assist you with difficulties also. Any little favor, she is willing to do it for you. We believe we have considerable justification in saying this, for Mrs, Byrnes and Mrs. Aycock have been very patient and under- standing with the entire Spur Staff. E221 3. I , , M, .a U t.

Various other names were subsequently applied to the regionaand in the early mission days the name TEXAS came into common usage-originating according to some au- thorities, from the roft-shaped abodes of native Indians-dcalled in Spanish "tejas" or "texas" -others believe that the name was derived from a shortening ot lvlixtecas-as the inhabitants were called, being descendants. The most popular explanation credits the name to an Indian word ot salutation, tehas-a synonym tor friend, that greeted the ears ot Spanish explorers in East Texas. T i381 I A .

Many times, safety was jeopardized-officials interfered and when the new govern- ment was established, Austin was forced to Mexico City to claim his rights.

Not the least to suffer was Sam Houston-for his was the job I441 to restrain the eager Texans in the face of ridi- cule. Sam Houston decided the chance had come as he surveyed the over-confident Mexicans on the Buffalo Bank-and in a few minutes on the afternoon of April 2l, IS36, the Texans made good the opportunity and left no doubt as to future security of the Lone Star Republic. gif,- If I. .

Texas Joins the Union The first real development in Texas- it has been pointed out-took place with the intro- duction of American families into Texas. Spain, and later Mexico, made no attempt to maintain a friendly feeling with these colonies -families often sent their children to other states to be educated. Texas was always considered a natu- ral social, economic, and political subdivision of the United States. When Mexico violated her agreements, the colonists felt that they were no l45l longer bound-and Texas had a right to do as she wished. After the Republic was established Texas and the United States grew closer. lt was no surprise to the world when on June 23Q l845, the Congress of Texas passed a joint reso- lution of annexation which had been approved by the Congress of the United States.

A harder running, faster charging, and more alert group of young men has not been seen on the local gridiron before, And may the teams of '36, '377 in fact, may all the teams in the future follow the example set forth by our fighting l935 eleven!

E701 ERNEST MITCHELL: A good pass receiver and an equally good blocker-Ernest was placed on the All-City team. Mitchell played exceptionally well in the Austin and Tucson games. 'I JOE JONES: Joe is another one of our graduating lettermen. He was a regular on the team until he was injured in the Lubbock game. However, Joe is highly responsible for our victory over the Westerners, RICHARD DESOUCHES: Richard played regular tackle on the team. He was liked and respected by his team-mates as well as by his opponents, Dick was characterized by his sports- man-like and never - say - die spirit. Desouches was another Tiger placed on the All-District Team. GEORGE AUSTIN: Although small, George consist- ently threatened the regular ends for the first string berth. He was probably the best pass receiver on the team, George layehexception- ally well in the Plsdenix ancmcson games. He isfanother one of Our graduating squadriierwf X E711 H. C. WEISSINGER: H, C. is another one ot our three year letter- men that has played his last game tor El Paso High School. Weissinger starred in the Las Cruces and Lubbock games. His loss will be felt greatly next season. TONY VEGA: Although Tony was a "first-year" man this past season, he could always be depended upon to play an alert, smart ball game. Vega is slated for a first string berth next season. He played well in the Ysleta and Austin games. GEORGE ATTEL: A three-year letterman, George was a stalwart of strength on the defense as well as being a good ground-gainer on a "guard around" play. Attel was undoubtedly the outstanding line-man on the Tiger squad. He was placed on the All-District Eleven by every paper. WILLARD WOOLVERTON: Willard starred at a regular halt-back post until he was injured in the Bowie game. He was forced to remain on the side-lines until the San Angelo game in which he displayed the characteristic gameness for which he is noted. Woolverton was a Junior this past seasong great things should be expected of him next year. E721 CHARLES WEBB: Charles played the position of half-back, He was leading scorer in the city and the most elusive rnan in the district. He was placedoon the All-City team by every paper, PAT NORRIS: Pat came from behind to push aside all bidders for the wing-back position. His blocking was exceptionally good and he could always be depended upon to gain on Neverses, Norris played bang-up ball in the Austin game. ' . J ff . J i'i' DAN sovoz Possessing lightning-like reaction, if ., Danny would usually be the fifth man 3 K h ,,.N' "i' 1 in the opponents' backfield although . ' he played the position of guard.

We predict that Mitchell will develop into an All-District tackle by next season. l731 eww 4 I fi rl" li' fx MIKE CARRASCO: Mike played his last year on the team thi t season. He was t outstanding blocker on the squad for t e year ' is loss will be felt gre y next season. Carrasco was also place the -City Eleven. OCTAVIO BORUNDA: l What Octo lacked in size and weight, he made up in speed and fight. Borunda was a stand-out in the Tucson and Austin games. l-le is another one of our graduating backs. JOE CHAVEZ: This was Joe's first year on the squadg how- ever, he developed so rapidly that by the San Angelo game, he demonstrated that by the coming season he will readily become All- District material. GEORGE MIRAMONTES: Although George was not a regular, he probably played as much as any other tackle on the squad. Nliramontes could always be depended upon to fulfill his assignments regardless of the size or speed of the opponents. E741 JOHNNY SHAW: Johnny played the position of tackle for two years. l-le completed his eligibility the past season when he proved himself to be the outstanding player for that position in the District. The coaches will have a hard assignment in finding someone to take his place. I K RALPH CASTILLO: Developing rapidly as the season went by, Ralph was one of the outstanding ends on the squad. Being a good pass receiver as well as an excellent defense man, he could always be depended upon to give the opponents more than his share of trouble. His loss will be felt greatly next season.

A consistent point getter, as well as was rewarded for his splendid work by being unanimously chosen for All-State honors as guard and captain. ABIE KAHN: An excellent dribbler and passer, Kahn was certainly an important cog in the Tigers' offense. He played one of the regular guard positions and was one of the best defensive men on the squad. Abies play in the State Tournament was bril- UP i 9 it pig- being one of the best guards produced in recent years, Dwyer ti ii' Y X liantly outstanding. RALPH CASTILLO: Ralph was easily the most improved player on the squad. During the early part of the season, he was slow and awlcwardg but by hard work and untiring patience Castillo mastered every phase of the game so well that he was un- animously chosen All-State Center at the State Tournament. Ralph has com- pleted his eligibility. TONY VEGA: Tony played one of the regular forwards. l-le was an excellent floor man and led in scoring in the City Series. Vega was chosen by every local newspaper in their All-City selections. Great things will be expected of him next year. BILL mics: NA Bill started the season at one of the regular guard positions. l-le was shifted to forward, how- ever, where his deadly shooting would improve the Tiger offense. Rike was undoubtedly the most consistent scorer on the team. Bill Rike is an- other one of our graduating regulars. E771 ww 'W "7 'ia . an - 54+ BOB FOLK: Possessing a tricky one-handed shot, Bob could always be depended upon to annex points for El Paso High School. Bob starred in the City Tournament, especially in the Bowie games. He has completed his eligibility. WILLARD WOOLVERTON: "Hammer" played one of the alternate forward positions. He specialized in all kinds of trick shots and passes, being able to manipulate the ball with uncanny accuracy. WilIard's playing during the City Series was of a high standard. DAVID CARRASCO: David alternated at both of the guard positions. He was an excellent defensive man, a good drib- bler, and could always get his share of the points. His play in the Regional Meet assured everyone that he will be an outstanding player next year. GEORGE MIRAMONTES: George was a hard driver from the start and could be depended upon to be plugging when the final whistle blew. Although he was not a regular, he probably scored more points than some of the first five. George was a Senior this past season. I78I BASKETBALL SUCCESSFUL Coacll Pennington's battling Tigers' thrilling victory was due to splendid team work and excellent coaching. 4 Losing only four out of twenty-four games, -the El Paso High School Tigers completed the most successful season in the last ten years. Although considered very weak at the start ot the season, the Tigers won the City, District, and Regional Championships. They were finally nosed out by Cushing in the State Championship game, 33-29. This is an excellent example of what good team-work, splendid coaching, and a "never- say-die" spirit will do. Therefore, take heed, you I937 "Tigers," and rnay you show the same spirit and team-work next season. BASKETBALL SCORES TsAMs PLAYED E. P. H. s.

The Senior team was victorious in volley ball and planned to be so in all other sports also. Pins, emblems, felt "E's," and sweaters were awarded to those girls winning honors and acquiring a certain number of points, at a banquet held at the Cortez, which is an annual event. One of the main events in the department this year was the Annual Demonstration, which was featured on December 14, in the Austin Gymnasium, for our gym was not large enough to accommodate all the spectators. The demonstration is a combination of class work, tap danc- ing, tumbling, and folk dances. ' The Girls' R. 0. T. C., which is a division of the gymnasium as well as R. 0. T. C. unit, also took part in the program.

Albert Schwartz Vice-President ..... ..... B etty Edwards Secretary-Treasurer ................... David Tappan The Scholarship Club is composed of students making an average of at least and preferably "A," in all studies, Their deportment grades must not fall below an "A" at any time. To be eligible a student must make the necessary average for a whole term and then at the be- ginning of the next term automatically becomes a member, Only a high senior may enter at the close of the first six weeks. The club meets on every other Wednesday and the meetings are varied and entertaining, A banquet is always held at the end of each current school year, Perhaps the greatest privilege offered to members of the Scholarship Club is exemption from all final examinations, Members are given gold scholarship pins to wear throughout the term and if he remains a member of the club and graduates with it, the pin becomes his own possession. Miss Stamps, the sponsor, has done much to promote a feeling of good will and co-opera- tion in the club and the students themselves, have done much to correct the false idea that it is a club for "book-worms" only.

S am Levenson Our chapter, the first chapter of the National l-lonor Society to be founded in El Paso, was begun in i927 by Mr. Lynn B, Davis. lts purpose is not solely to develop scholarship, although it gives recognition to that, but to stimulate and cultivate other qualities in students which make for a finer life-namely, character, service and leadership, As the name implies, this society is national in scope and its members are entitled to wear the national pin which gives high school students everywhere the same recognition that the key of the Phi Beta Kappa gives to college students. Members are selected by the faculty from a list of seniors and high juniors. This year the society departed from the customary initiation, and honored the new members with 3 luncheon at the l-lilton l-lotel - table appointments featuring the club colors, purple and gold. Election into this society is considered the highest honor which the faculty can bestow upon studentsean honor, however, which the students themselves must earn. , ' Noel Alton Jessie Brown Dorothy Chappell Louise Coggeshall Tony Courchesne Lona Dale Cox Jim Cronenberg Larry Duthie Betty Edwards Carol Edwards Ernestina Flores Miss Catherine Flynn has been our sponsor since the foundation of the society, Members for the Spring Term of i936 include: NATIONAL HONOR STUDENTS Maralyn Fritz l-lelen Galbraith Lucille Gessler Liddie l-lardie Bob Huey Grayce Jones Bill Kaufman Charles Lee Sam Levenson Rebecca Luera Laurence Lyles June Martin Dorothy Means Sophia Montes Josephine Nieto Eunice Perkins Otilia Porras Lonnie Rice Milton Robinson Evelyn Rodgers l99I Arthur Rosenbaum Josephine Rosenfield Albert Schwartz Donald Sternglanz Jimmie Lou Stowe David Tappan George Thoirs Lucille Voelzel Frances Wadlingto Virginia West VT RADIO CLU kv' President ...... .....

The club colors are gold and purple, Aims of the organization are mainly: to develop interest in home economics, to develop personality, leadership, self-reliance, initiative, social poise and professional interest, to develop team-work and friendship, to provide social training and to stimulate interest in hobbies and in the wise use of leisure. The club has been very active and has accomplished a great deal, The initiation cere- mony, which was held at night and following a social hour, was the first activity the members participated in A Thanksgiving box was the club's offering to a needy family. The members enjoyed the merry Christmas party because they had made scrap books, dressed dolls and var- ious other things for the orphans. On March tvventy-seventh, the club sponsored a "Cotton Cord" dance in the El Paso High School gym, A tea for the mothers of club members was given Friday, May eighth, The main project of the second term has been to enlarge the Health Department, A portion of the proceeds of the dance and of an assembly was given to the department.

Aurelia Arevalo An essential to every pupil's school life is a good library with a competent supervisor and helpers. Certainly our library, with Mrs. Mamie Lyles and her staff, aids El Paso l'ligh students in their work, Throughout the day and after school hours we may find boys and girls working away at some assignment, or perhaps reading for pleasure. Over 9,000 books of all types furnish ample reference and diversion material. A student in English, after taking library lessons, is not at a loss to find what is needed, but library aids are always on hand, The staff of l7 girls have among their duties the issuing, receiving and shelving of books, the care of scholastic and other magazines, and helping in every way. Mrs, Lyles made the statement that without the student helpers, it would have been impossible to run the library without a trained paid assistant, This year the library was moved to new quarters, combining with the Junior and Senior study hall, The upper classmen have benefited greatly through its use. Plans have already been formulated for next year, and an even better system has been worked out.

Herman The R. O. T. C. in the El Paso High School had its most successful year in the history of the school in the year i935-l936. , For the fourth consecutive time our R. O. T. C. was put on the honoriroll of the Eighth Corps area. This honor rating is very hard to attain but through the efforts of splendid com- mandant of cadets, James P. Moore, we were successful in getting this rating. The R. O. T. C. Competitive Drill, held annually, was a decisive victory for the First Battalion of El Paso High School over the Second Battalion of Austin High. Our Battalion won twelve out of fourteen possible first places. 1 , The Battalion commanded by Cadet Major Howard Newton won the Battalion trophy. Company B, commanded by Cadet Captain Jimmy Ferguson, won the company drill. Company C, commanded by Cadet Captain Bob Folk, won the freshman Company drill. Second platoon Company C, commanded by Cadet 2nd Lt. Dick Fletcher, won the Freshman platoon drill. The Fifth Battalion, commanded by Cadette Captain Liddie Hardie, won the Girls' Battalion drill. Company R, commanded by Cadette Captain Liddie Hardie, won the Girls' Company drill, First platoon of Company R, commanded by Cadette 2nd Lt. Louise Hayward, won the girls' platoon drill. Cadet Master Sergeant Bob Hoover won the Individual Competitive drill for the second consecutive year. This is the first time in the history of the R. O. T. C. in El Paso that this was ever done. Cadet private Frank Brown won the Freshman individual Competition. Cadette Sergeant Charlotte Cole won the girls individual competition. Cadet Major Howard Newton won first place in the Don Thompson trophy for marks- manship. Cadet Captain Jeff Parham won second place in the Don Thompson trophy for marks- manship. . Cadet Major Howard Newton was chosen the most outstanding cadet in the corps and was awarded a gold medal. Our victory is largely due to the excellent leadership of our Cadet Officers and the de- termination of our cadets and the untiring efforts of Second Lt. Thomas K.

The members of the Student Council of El Paso High School are elected by popular vote by mem- bers of their class division, The Council is an organization of honor and government in the school. It has furthered democracy by establish- ing a student court, with the council members sitting as judges. The council has in its power the right to pass judgment on the cases coming before it. With the equalness of the student on trial and students as judges, it is believed that greater steps will be accomplished in the under- standing of the arising cases. , . . . . . . . .President Student Council . . , .Vice-President Student Council . . . . . . .Secretary Student Council . . . . .Sponsor Student Council Every school wishes to gain in strength and prestige and to have better student government.
