J1 T--y Sffp = ii 7 J-- : J Z5fJ 7 m p In September 1944 fifty-three Freshmen timidly walked down the Imlls of El Paso Township High School. After we were in swing of it all, this timidness was soon overcome as many of our classmates became known in athletics, drama and music. Most of our fame was due to the guidance of our sponsors, Mr. Snyder, Miss Miles and Miss Jibbs; the leadership of our class officers, Lowell Crawford, I’res; Tim Enright. Vice Pres.; Carol (Tver, Sec. Treas.; and Kenneth Faulk, Student Council. A year latter we again entered ETHS, this time as Sophomores and with more confidence than ever. As a group we started off in true rytlnnetic pattern and much was accomplished this year. We planned several social activities among which were a roller skating party and a hayrack ride. Our class again showed good taste in selecting their sponsors and class officers. Miss McCue, Miss Miles and Mr. Traylor served as our sponsors; and our officers were: Dick leorge, Pres.; George .Jurgens, Vice Pres.; Don Koch, Sec. Treas.; Kenneth Faulk, Student Council. In September, 194 , our class stepped in and took the role as Juniors and upper classmen with great capability. The thoughts of all of us were directed towards earning do ido re me). This we accomplished through the harmony and willingness of our class and our sponsors. The biggest project was the presentation of the play “Rest Foot Forward." The funds were spent entertaining the Seniors at Prom on May 9, which was the highlight of the year. Our sponsors for this year were Mrs. Frances Miller, Miss Miles and Mr. ("lagged. Class officers were Dick George, I’res.; Don Coyle, Vice Pres.; Middie Diers, Sec. Treas.; Carol (Tver, Reporter; Don Toole and Margaret Barclay, Student Council. In our final year the thirty-six members of the Senior Class, under the excellent guidance of our sponsors. Miss Stuart, Mr. Bess and Miss Nessel. were able to experience true success. We published our school paper, the “Reporter." Our class again displayed their dramatic talents in the presentation of the play “Our Hearts Were Young and Gay." Our biggest triumph of the year was the publishing of the COMETEER under the editorship of Middle Diers and the help of her staff. Yes, we, the class of "48, can proudlvvoice “Aren't You Glad You’re You?” Yet we voice it with sadness as we remember the good times and wonderful teachers and students of ETIIS. For in our minds this song is mingled with the melody of the graduation march. Eleven1. MARGARET BARCLAY—Transfer “Sweet and Lovely" G. Ch. 3. 4; M.

At the beginning of this year the class of ’49 started off in perfect pitch. This melodic atmosphere was continued throughout the year, as our class really worked perfectly as a group. The result of this work was shown in the fact that we held a refeshment stand at the football and basketball games. We made ourselves known in the dramatic field when we presented the play ,4f ride and Prejudice.” On May 15. we proudly p|ayed host to the Seniors at the Junior-Senior Prom.

E. class had a very enjoyable year in Bess’ "OF Swimmin' Hole.” A great amount of ducking was encountered in the pool when Coach was not looking. It seems as if the water was cold at times but who cares how cold the water is when you can go swimming? We all appreciate the efforts of Coach Bess to help make the "Or Swimmin’ Hole" an enjoyable place. “ON EL PASO" Once again sports have come to a close at El Paso Township High School. Every student hates to see the end, for nothing is more important than high school sports. Without the efforts of Coach Bess we could never have attained such a satisfying season. Every boy who has ever taken part in athletics realizes that he owes most of his achievements, as an athlete to his coach. This is exactly what the boys who are paiticipating in our sports owe Coach Bess. He has taught cooperation between athletes and really knows his "stuff” when it comes to any form of sports. Any coach who is responsible for all four sports, baseball, football, basketball and track, proves that he has an abundance of patience. He must spend hour after hour with each sport and Coach Bess has made a good showing in each. Every athlete in El Paso High School thanks Coach Bess for a wonderful job and wishes him success In the years to come. Forty-three"Puj hin First Row: O. Hocker, M. Armstrong. M. Franke, D. Jones. J.

''fcaAkdLall” The COMETS enjoyed a fairly successful season even though they won only five games and lost fourteen. Most of their losses were by small margins due to miss ’ng too many free throws. It was a building year for the underclassmen because the squad consisted of only six seniors. Toward the end of the season the team had improved greatly and gave everyone they played an equ al'y good fight. The COMETS had five returning lettermen at the opening cf the season. Coach Bess, in his first year of coaching basketball, developed some of the reserves who were very valuable to the team. Don Coyle and Don Toole led the COMETS in the scoring department while Glenn Burroughs and Coyle were the floor generals of the team. Don Toole .Bruce Adams, and Tony Hayse controlled most of the rebounds under both baskets. Fiftyr Stimpert. B. Bohlander. D. Nevius. ... Second Row: J. Lampe. M. Bernhardy. B. Dixon. P. Weasel. J.
