BOWERS SENIORS... JajlqjcL and Jawl Many important happenings occurred in September, 1941. A new era in schooling began—the class of ’45 entered E.T.H.S. Under the capable leadership of Don Gordon we progressed in mighty strides toward achievement. The ordeal of initiation was passed successfully and we became full-fledged members of the “mystic body” of El Paso Township High School. During our Sophomore year we were welcomed by the upperclassmen and had a most enjoyable year, guided by our president, Bill Tipler. Our third year at E.T.H.S. was filled with activity. Bill Tipler again accepted the office of presidency. The Junior stand flourished at the football games. Then we produced, under the direction of Miss Tendick, “Early to Bed, Early to Rise.” Our inevitable Senior year arrived and Bill Tipler again filled the chief executive position. In the field of drama we showed the same ability that our class has always had, by staging the outstanding production, “A Little Honey.” So, as we leave El Paso Township High School, our remembrances will not be held in such temporary objects as pictures, autographs, and souvenirs, but rather in those precious memories of everlasting friendship that we share with the faculty and student body.

All events lead that way—sponsoring the refreshments at games, selling punch at the Homecoming Dance, producing "Moonlight for Herbert." the Junior play. Activities "just for fun" included a hayride in the fall and a skating party in the spring. The end of the year finds us still looking ahead—to being Seniors next year. First row: Miss Salmon.

In September, 1944, fifty-three freshmen entered El Paso Township High School’s portals. We resolved to progress satisfactorily so as to be entered into the hall of fame when we graduate. Our first social event, a wiener roast, was presided over by our class sponsor, Mr. Snyder, who left us after the first semester to take over a new' position. His position as sponsor was filled by Miss Miles, who has been very successful. Many of our members became known in athletics, drama and music, to the upperclassmen. We contributed our share in the bond drive and supported the Red Cross. Next year wre again intend to return to E.T.H.S. and hold our own among the student body. First row: Miss Gibbs. Dallas Oilman.

Coach Bowers, who had directed basketball and track the previous year, was now undertaking the task of turning out a winning football team. He did this very ably by ending the season with six wins against two losses. Throughout the winter he led El Paso’s basketball team for the second straight year. This time he walked off with the Woodford County Championship to his credit. Coach Bowers also handled the El Paso baseball team. Although the records might be misleading, the El Paso varsity team enjoyed a fine season of basketball. Top honor earned by the team was the WOODFORD COUNTY CHAMPIONS FOR 1945. This was the first time since 1940 that the Comets had won the trophy. Coach Bowers first five consisted of Jim Corbitt and Don Gordon at the forward positions; Bill Poorbaugh at center; and Monte Lindsey and Lloyd Raber as guards. El Paso won the County Title by defeating Roanoke, Minonk, and Metamora. In the Washington Holiday Tournament, the Comets were beaten by Washington; and in the Regional Tournament at Lexington, E.T.H.S. was nosed out by Normal Community High School.

Kenny Wessel, Byron Donze and other underclassmen who scored for the second team this year.

Minonk, and Washburn; and the District Tournament which is held as a preliminary for the State Tournament in May. El Paso will take the field for their first game with six of the first nine back from last year. GYM CLASSES With heavy emphasis by the government on physical fitness, the Boys' P.E. program at E.T.H.8. during 1944-45 was planned along those lines. During the fall special emphasis was put on calisthenics, running, and touch football. The winter activities consisted of swimming, calisthenics, and basketball. Following a boxing tournament in the soring, outside activities were resumed with the main attraction being softball. The Girls’ P.E. classes started with baseball and deck tennis. During the winter months basketball, volleyball, and swimming w’ere the main activities. When spring arrived, baseball was resumed and swimming continued.

Camera! . . . Curtain! April 26 and 27 the senior play of E.T.H.S., produced under the direction of Miss Tendick, “A Little Honey,’ vas proclaimed as one of the best plays any senior class has ever produced. The plot is centered around Diana Minton, who, since her boy friend, Tom Corning, has entered the service, has become very much interested in the theoretical analysis of motors, navigation and the like, and because of this has almost lost him. Diana’s younger sister, “Scoots,” annoys everyone with the antics of her pet frog Pegasus, while Jerry Minton and Albert Parker interrupt the quiet household of the Mintons with their unending trial of securing a dress for Jerry to wear to the Junior-Senior dance. Grandma enters via her wheel chair and saves the day with a bit of “good old fashioned” advice.

Bill Nohren played the part of HERBERT RAINS, who was forever clouding his parents’ horizon, and Barbara Oyer as JEAN BRESSART played opposite him. Donna Bishop and Kenneth Wessel, as Herbert’s long-suffering progenitors, gave excellent performances as well as Bob Schramm as Vincent, Herbert’s buddy, who was always involved in the latter’s troubles. Lewis Wes-sel as Vincent’s professor-father gave an excellent portrayal. Other members of the cast were: Joan Roth, the baby of the family; Pauline Berg, the music teacher; Mary Enright, music patroness; Gene Schertz, famous music critic; Delora North as the town’s leading realtor; Marjorie McDonell, a housewife; and Lloyd Raber as a successful contractor.
