When the need for a group to sponsor the Schools at T.'ar Program became apparent, the Counoil was reorganized. Six additional members were chosen from the student oody and they, together with the original Council, form what is near the Victory Council. (6)Vice-president Bob Faulk Presidenti John Taylor Student Council Member; Bloiae Volz SENIOR CLASS In the fall of 1939, fifty-one freshmen started to E. T. H. S. They started by electing class officers In that election, Alberta Nohren became president! Eloise Volz, vice-president! Alta Duncan, Secretary-treasurer; and Boo Faulk, Student Council Representative. Miss Espevik, Mr. Snyder, and Mr. Biackwell were their class advisors. Most of that group of students came back in 1940 as sophanores. Ross Connely and Sene Nooner transferred from Secor. During the year Jane Elting moved to Washburn. The class officers thax year werei Bob Faulk, president! John Taylor, vice-presidentj Patricia Smith, secretary-treasurer; and Alta Duncan was Student Council Representative. The class advisors were Miss Toohill, Miss Shepherd and Mr. Blackwell. In 1941 this group of Juniors really did things, they worked hard to raise the money for the Prom. They put on the much talked-about comedy, "June Mad" and also arranged to have Ralph Pierce, the magician, put an a sheer. The Prctn was a great success to both seniors and juniors. The class officers were; John Tayior, president! Ross Connely,vice-president; Alberta Nohren, secretary-treasurer; and Eloise Volz and Alta Duncan were Student Council Representatives. Miss Miles, Mr. Noe, and Mr. McLane were class advisors.During the year we lost four students; Gene Nooner and Kenneth Forth went to Eureka, and Velma and Loren Kupferschmidt started at Gridiey. Last fall this intelligent group of Seniors started their last year in High School. There were four new students but Margaret Hodgson went to Bloomington High Sohool and June Van Scyoc went to Eureka High Sohool,so that left a total of thirty-eight seniors starting in 1942. The class officers are John Taylor, president; Eob Faulk, vice-president; Charlotte ftrese, secretary-treasurer; and Eloise Volz and Ross Connely, Student Council Representatives. Their olass advisors are Miss UcCue, Miss Tendick, and Mr. McLane. The class is a well balanced olass, most of them have taken part in athletios, chorus, band, or 6cme of the other activities. Alta Duncan was presented the D. A. R. award. They are now practicing for the Senior play called "Brother Goose", and we hope it will be a big suocess.Marjorie Aldrich Trans far Donald Bagby Football 1,2,3,4 Oya Circus 1 B Club 2|9 Judging Contest 2 Joanna Bailey Transfer Mixed Chorus 3,4 Girls Chorus 3,4 Junior Play 3 Senior Play 4 Pep Club 4 Literary Contest 3 Music Contest 5 Operetta 3 F.P.A.

VUir-HeiieJ; Rm - A -T p«v-Huvnpty Dumrty ClSJ1 (13)CLASS HIOPHECY The main reason for our journey' throughout the states was to secure information for the "Who's Who in El Paso". The train on which we were traveling made its first stop at a small town in Missouri. Who should we see there but the former Mar gey Aldrich, who ownoa the largest farm in those parts. The huge farm of sixteen acres was managed by Murgey and her ten children. On board the train wo met several celebrities. We were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of Lyle Crowe, who is famous for his book "Hovr to be a Loud Mouth in Six Easy Lessons”. Incidentally he is married to that quiet girl, Helen Reeves, who never gets a word in edgewise (we don't believe it.) Also on board was the glamorous ohorus girl,Bubbles Nohren, who has just won great acclaim for her masterpiece in literature "How to Win Your Man With One Little .Vink". The conductor told us that the great movie director,Norman Fanther, was traveling to New York to read over his new picture "Better Late rhan Never”.As luck would have it, we did not get to see him. While eating our dinner, a telegram was delivered to us and to our joy, -lash Gordon, the Modem Suporman, was the proud father of a five-pound girl. The telegram seid that the new parents had nameo the baoy Mary Kathryn. (We wonder whioh Mary Kathryn won outj After passing through many states, we finally reached Hew York where we were greeted by Mayor La Sparks. Our first stop was at the exclusive Pot-Bo hotel which was managed by Cleo Potter and her bosom pal, Evelyn Bohlandcr, who,in her spare time, raises Chester White pigs in her penthruse garden. Thru the window, we could see a band of Sioux Indians performing. Among the players was Ross Connely, who was fondly beating his bass drum, whioh, by the way, he had named Pocohantas. That afternoon,the Chambermaid came to our room to clean and we had a nice long chat with her. It was nice seeing Joanna 3ailey again. Joanna worked in the hotel in the daytime and sang at Carnegie Hall at night. Mayor LaSparks oarae back and gave U3 tickets to a concert given oy William Eastman, who was playing his famous arrangement of ”Chop Sticks". Also appearing on the same program was Faulina Stimpert, who is notad as the only woman baes singer in the world. The next day while we were touring the city, the mayor told us that the fine lighting system of the city was due to the LampeLight whioh had been inventod by Junior 1 Gauger. Stopping at the R. 0. A. building we saw Jeanie Rutledge,the chewing gua queen, advertising for the Triplemint Program. Billy Kaufman,the darling of the airways .was also singing on that program. Her theme song was "I'm Irresistiole". That night when we left our hotel, one of rhe first people wham we met was Vio-tor Wagner—in uniform. He said he was a ?• B. S. C. man. When we asked him what that meant he told us—foceral Bureau of Street Cleaners. We paased a five and ten cent store and saw two familiar faoes advertising Tru-House Foot foundation". They were Louise Parkhouse and 3ob PTuin who had toured the nation with their product. Going past a theater, we noticed that the "great lover", Don Bagby, was playing Brett Rutier in "The Wind Want Past". Co-starred with him was the great actress Aita Din-oan, who had the part of Variett. The mayor showed us the U. S. 0. Canteen and who should oe the head hostess but 81 oise Volz. Sne catered to all sailors, and one in particular. Helping her run the center were Margaret O'Connell and Juanita Miller, who were famous for their delicious doygh-nuts they served to the doughboys. Turning into a drug store, we nearly bumped into a fur be-deoked lady leading two Great Denes on a leash. We didn't get a chance to speak,but we know her to be tie ferns r Pat Smith. She had Just divorced her eleventh husband.At one time she had been the Countess of Potznaniaj now she was Patrioia Smith, Johnson,0'Hare,Balonaki,Kaldini, Brown, Whetiel, Olafson, Salono, Zolinski, Spretmouse, Jones. The nation had just elected a new president and Si Paso was oertainly proud of John Taylor, who won that honor. John never married (he always did dislike girlsJ)—-and Ethel Bill is the housekeeper at the White House. Charlotte Preae is new a very wealthy woman. Her invention, "Frese's Favorite Pish food", won her great aoclaim all over the fishy world. She also owns several oil wells in Oklahoma. Since her husband is dead and she has no children, it is rumored she will leave her money to 81 Paso Township High Sohool, to pay off the deot left by her class. Sane of the '43 graduates remained at home and beca:.ie well-known. Lorraine Sands is running the Panola store with the able assistance of her husband—you knew whoJBob Faulk is tho local Johnson Wax salesman,and he informed us that June was hie best selling month. The present mayor of El Paso is Eddie Coyle. The publio must like him for he's boen in for ten years. One of the first laws he put in the schools was that students oould sleep in history olass if they wanted to. Luan Smith is the looal beauty operator. She has the only beauty parlor in the city, and is kept very busy. II er shop covers a whole blook and she has twenty operators working for her. Virgil Hepperley, the seoond Glenn Cunningham, returned to his home town for a visit after breaking the mile record by l 2 minute. I suppose you are wondering about the 43 class sponsors. "Doo” l.cL ne is touring the country with his all-girl basketball team. Incidentally, the five girls are his daughters. Miss UcCue is now secretary to the President. Every once in a while she returns to SI iaso to visit the commercial classes. She says she gets a great deal of enjoyment out of watching the beginners in shorthand. Miss !.iarian Tendiok now has a dootor's degree in dramatics and is teaching at Bradley Polyteohnique Institute. In the summer she goes to New York where she has stock fri ft siBauer theater. Thus completes the oyclo of the '43 graduates.(16) JUKI OR CLASS In the fall of 1940, forty ripe freshmen timidly scrolled in good old B. T H. S After becoming acquainted with each other, they elected John Mai com president{Raymond Shoe-maker vi oe-president, and Bill Kilpatriok secretary .Student Council member was Tinker CTConn® and Mr Snyder was ohosen for sponsor.Most of the students took part in the activities that year and have continued to do so.

It is oomposed of the Student Counoil plus a few more members from each class. The main purpose of the oounoil is to promote the sale of War Bonds and Stamps in our oocn-munity. Its first successful attempt was made in December when our spectacular stamp drive was held. This continued for a week and at that time $1435.00 worth of bonds and stamps had been sold. Sales have been continued one day each week throughout the year. Enoouraged by their first success, the members have planned a spring drive. This, began Maroh 15th and continued until May 12th. Our goal is two jeeps, or $1800. These activities are a part of the School at War program for the purpose of stimulating interest in war activities and helping our country to attain its goal—VICTORY The most important aotivity of the Victory Council this year is the Victory Bond Auction, which is scheduled to take place Saturday evening, April 17th. As this book goes to press, students are hard at work with last minute arrangements—collecting donations, taking care of advertising, and putting up the auction stand. Both students and merchants have been generous with their contributions, and we feel confident that the auction will be successful. Among the many donated artioles to be auctioned are calves, pigs, sheep, chickens, furniture, quilts, and home-canned foods. These articles will be auctioned off for 7?ar Bonds, and we hope to be able to reach our quota of the price eighteen hundred dollars V of two jeeps— ® Members of Victory Council aroj First RowiMr Yens, Ann Burster, Margaret Fenton, Miss Salman, Tinker 01Conner,Bloise Voir Mary Rita Barclay, Ruth Stotler, John Taylor, Mrs. Borror, Mr. Claggett • Second Rwr Kathleen Barclay, John Everetts, Lloyd Raber, Bill Tipler, Gene Steffen, Junior Gauger, John Malcaa, Bob Gordon, Ross Connley, Miss Martin 1st Ron:Kitty Lou pastasn Shirley Quiraa,Marilyn Shaffer,Blaine Lampe,Liss Lilies,Seta Zehr, Amenta Frakes,Mary Rita 3arclay,Joan Cleary; 2nd Row:Paulina Stinpert,Rachel V.'agner,Donna Jane Agnew,Janet Pinkham,Ruth llson, Helen Reeves,Rita Kirby,Roberta LIcConkey,Lois Coyle,Esther Allison,Beulah Martin,Virginia Inthurne; 3rd RowrMary L. »adsworth, Betty Altum,Luan Smith,Alma Newkiik, Mary Enright,Donna Bishop,Agnes Roberts,Juanita Miller,Betty J.

To assist the helpless...to make the life of our country's defenders more pleasant...to aid in rehabilitation work...to remember unfortunate children... to be ever mindful of the aged.....to bring cheer into the hearts of the physically and mentally handicapped---these are worthy objectives of El Paso Chapter of the Junior Red Cross which is sponsored by Miss Miles and Mr. McLane.

Noontime found the band raemoers drilling on the football field and marching down the streets, in preparation for the marching exhioitions which they gave for the football games. Within three weeks after school began, the band gave its first concert. This was in connection with a Community Bond Drive,and was the first chance to do our part for patriotism. They led the Community Hallowe'en parade, and soon afterwards, began training for music for the basketball season. At one of the games, they gave an effective patriotic demonstration, leading the student body in the national anthem.

Surpassing the early season hopes of even the most optimistic observers, the 1942 football season was one of the most successful. Five victories and three defeats is the record which the gridmen rolled up as they scored 117 points and allowed their opponerfcs only 99 points. The season got off to a good start when the Comets opened their compaign on the home gridiron by handing Leroy a 19 to 13 defeat. Fairoury, the next opponent to face the Comets, was unable to stop the high scoring machine as the 21 Paso boys took advantage of every scoring opportunity to run up a final score of 25 to 0. Chillicothe handed El Paso its first defeat of the season, but the Comets were back in shape to overpower Chenoa in the homecoming game by a score of 12 to 0. On to another victory. When Farmer City s attack proved ineffective, El Paso came out on top with the final results—El Paso 7, Fanner City 6. This defeat for Farmer City ended their long series of wins. The game with Washington was not as successful. However, the home boys were in shape to hand Lexington a 27 to 0 defeat. The final fight for victory proved unsuccessful. Eureka toppled the Comets 0 to 28, ending the E. T. H. S. football season with five victories and three defeats.
