The first project of the council was homecoming. We decorated the gym with a football theme and sponsored the dance for the celebration. The dance was successful and profitable.
The Council has sponsored a Christmas dance and several assembly programs. Other council activities included, selling T. shirts and sweat shirts. They also sponsored parties in co-operation with the V. F. W. Auxiliary.
The Annual National Convention was held in Peoria at the Pere Marquette Hotel, April 21 and 22. The representatives from our school were Lee Robbins, Bob Martin, and Miss Plese.

At last, we’ve finally made the grade. After spending four long years here at E.H.S., we all have to agree that they have been four wonderful years.
Under the guidance of our class sponsors and officers, we feel we’ve become a swell bunch of kids. (Conceited? No! Just proud.)
For a while, we’ll find it hard to be on our own, but gradually, we’ll become accustomed to our new life and have many happy memories of our old pals at E. H. S.
20C faSA f- roph
Early in the spring or 1950 a national and much-
OISCUSSED CONVENTION WAS HELD IN THE STATE CAPITAL,
El Paso, for the purpose or electing a President or the United Comics. The convention was about to
GET UNDER WAY, BUT CHAIRMAN "SUPERMAn" WAS DELAYED
because he had been called to the aid or the "Queen Mary", which had been rammed by "Little Toot" and WAS RAPIOLY SINKING. "Sup" REPORTED THAT HE CARRIED "The Queen" to safety.
The anxiety or the conventioners was somewhat quelled, however, when "Brenda Star" arrived to cover the convention. Gossip columnist, "Tessie the Typist" flooded her typewriter when she saw "Brenda" arrive on "Red Ryder s" horse. "Tessie's" romance was shattered. Her sorrow was turned to joy, however, and the whole convention cheered when "Little Herbie" rose and announced that he and "Little Lulu"
WOULO MARRY AS SOON AS "Lulu" COULD RENT A FARM. "Herbie" already has the house--—a Spanish adobe MODEL.
The convention was called to order, ano nominations WERE MADE FROM THE FLOOR. VISUALIZING THE SUMPTUOUSNESS OF THE BLACK HOUSE "MAGGIE" IMMEDIATELY NOMINATED "jlGs" FOR PRESIDENT, BUT "jlGS" DECLINED THE NOMINATION WHEN ATTORNEY "SMOKY STOVER" REMINDED THE GROUP THAT AN AMENDMENT TO THE COMIC-STUTION PROHIBITED THE COOKING OF CORNED BEEF AND
cabbage in the Black House. "Dagwood" was pleaseo
WITH THE "jlGs" WITHDRAWAL, AND HE IMMEDIATELY ROSE AND NOMINATED HIMSELF. "BAGGIE" DIDN'T HAVE THE AF-FA I RS OF STATE IN MIND, BUT HE FELT THAT ON A PRESIDENT'S SALARY, HE COULD MAKE BIGGER AND BETTER SANDWICHES. "Blondie" RESCUED the NATION FROM COMPLETE RUIN, HOWEVER, WHEN SHE TESTIFIED THAT HER AMBITIOUS HUSBAND COULD NEITHER READ NOR WRITE. "FLUFFY Adams" HEARD ONLY THE WORD SANDWICH AND DEC I DEO THAT THE CONVENTION SHOULD RECESS FOR LUNCH. "FLUFF" WAS CONCERNED ABOUT HER WAISTLINE. SINCE SHE AND STATESMAN "Buzzy" hao a falling out, "Fluff" was eating ONLY EVERY OTHER HOUR NOW.
Since the chosen restaurant was across town "Mary Marvel" and her partner "Flash Gordon" offered to
FLY THE GROUP OVER IN THEIR NEW COMET SKY SERVICE.
The Service is obviously a profitable one, because "Flash" is drawing up blue prints for a new and more exquisite "Kemp-Majal" to be dedicated to his wife. "Mary" is making plans for the purchase of the Iron-Curtain. Rumor has it that she and "Stalie" are "chummy", shall we say.
Upon arrival at "Wild Rose's" "Tame Thorn Garden Cafe" the convention was much pleased to find that
THEY WERE GOING TO BE ENTERTAINED WITH A FLOOR SHOW.
It was an extremely successful show. "Hedy DeWolfe"
THRILLED ALL THE WOMEN GUESTS WITH LATEST FASHIONS from Kappa. "Dick Tracy" modeled his new diamond-set BADGE WITH A HIDDEN RAZOR FOR LONG AND SLEEPLESS DETECTIVE JOBS. DICK IS NOW DEEPLY INVOLVED TRYING TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF WHO PUT THE POISONED THUMBTACK on Senator Claggett's chair. The guests were HILARIOUSLY ENTERTAINED WHEN THE FAMOUS DANCER "HENRy" ROSE AND GAVE A SOFT SHOE DANCE TO THE TUNE OF
"Rio Rita". The group then divided into two groups. The ladies found their way to the Gold Room where author "Daisy Mae" gave an interesting and usable
LECTURE, "How TO CATCH YOUR Man". "Daisy" IS CONSIDERED A FOREMOST AUTHORITY ON THIS SUBJECT. THE MEN ADJOURNED TO THE PURPLE ROOM WHERE "L.IL Abner" ADVISED THEM. HlS TOPIC WAS "THESE WILD, WILD WOMEN ’.
"Professor" Abner won the coveted "Tate Award" for
THIS INTELLIGENT DELIVERY. THE PROGRAM WAS CLOSED WITH A WILD WEST ROUND UP GIVEN BY ROY ROGERS AND HIS FAMOUS HORSE TRIGGER. THE CROWD PROVED TO BE too much for Trigger. He seemed to be in such a nervous STATE, THAT "SMILIN Jack" LEFT THE CONVENTION TO FLY HIM TO THE NEAREST HOSPITAL. "LITTLE IODINE" and "Little Imogene" provided transportation back to THE CONVENTION ON THEIR ROCKET POWERED TRICYCLES.
Everyone agreed the ride was very breathtaking.
"Superman" called the group to order again, and the Merry-go-round began. Nominations from the floor were in order. "Jug Head" was out of order, however,
AND HE WAS ASKED TO LEAVE THE CONVENTION. HE WAS MAKING UNCOMPLIMENTARY FACES AT "COOKIE" WHOSE
candy he had stolen. He was asked to report to "Brig Hall" where Psychologist "Mary Worth" was ON HAND TO PUT HIM ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW.
Nominations began again, but the process was
BROUGHT TO A SCREECHING HALT WHEN "OLIVE Oil" A RECORDER, FOUND HER LEGS LOCKED IN COMBAT WITH HER CHAIR. DR. "SLUGGO" WAS CALLED, AND HE DEEMED AN amputation necessary. Now the chair has only three legs. The accident yielded results, however. "Slug-go" and "Olive Oil" are a new twosome, seen nightly at Boots's "Saddle Shoe Rendezvous".
"Sup" called order again, and the conventioners WERE DETERMINED TO COMPLETE THE PROCESS. "SmITTy", BETTER KNOWN TO THE CONVENT I ONERS AS "WASTE PAPER Basket Smith", nominated the "Katzenjammer Kids" for President. The foresighted "w.P.B.S." argued
THAT IN CASE OF TROUBLE, ONE TWIN WOULD BE ON HAND TO TAKE OVER PREXY DUTIES. "SMITTy" HINTEO INTIMATELY TO A FRIEND THAT HE ALSO HAD MASTER OF THE BlACK
House in mind. "Willis" opposed the nomination and
RETALIATED BY NOMINATING "FRITZIE", LIGHT OF HIS
life. "Willis" believed that with all "Fritzie's"
BEAUX, SHE WOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE OFF WITH A COMPLETE CABINET.
Competition grew, and "Archie" was not to be OUTDONE. He IMMEDIATELY NOMINATED "MOPSy" FOR President, and "Teena" for Vice President. He admitted FRANKLY, THAT HIS IDEAS WERE "BaRKLERIAn" IN MANNER.
"Nancy", the well-dressed woman of the year,
GREW TIRED OF THE PROCESS ANO MOVED THAT NOMINATIONS BE CLOSED. "SLUGGO" SECONDED THE MOTION. "PATSY Walker", daughter of the famous Hiram Walker, was
APPOINTED TO COUNT THE VOTES. WHEN THE BALLOTING WAS FINALLY TABULATED, THE RESULTS WERE.
Secretary .................. "Olive Oil"
Treasurer ...................... "Penny"
The convention ended with a satisfied group. A PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE OLD PURPLE, WHITE, AND GOLD WAS GIVEN, ANO THE COMET SPANGLED BANNER WAS SUNG.

5051The El Paso Comets enjoyed their most successful season in four years as they wound up the 1949-50 campaign with a 13 won and 12 lost record. This was only two less victories than the Comets had scored in their last three seasons combined. With a few breaks their record could have been much better due to the fact that they dropped three one-point decisions, two of them in overtimes. The highlight of the season, of course, was the stunning 45 to 43 upset of Lexington.
Bruce Adams was the leading offensive threat for the locals scoring 364 points for a 14.6 per game average. His shooting percentage was also tops as he hit for 150 buckets in 336 attempts for an amazing 45 per cent. His 64 free throws in 95 attempts for 67 per cent was also high. Adams was closely followed by Tony Hayse, co-captain and sparkplug of the team, who dropped in 336 points for an average of 13.4 per game. His all around play was one of the main factors in the Comet’s success.
The locals scored 1055 points for an average of 42.2 per game while their opponents scored 1050 for a 42 point average.
