The Senior Class EL PASO HIGH SCHOOL Proudly Presents FOREWORD It is with great pride that we present to you this COMETEER OF 1958. It has been a lot of work, and it has been a lot of fun-but here it is I In looking through our COMETEER, you will find that we have compared the El Paso High School to the Universe. We consider the government, administration, faculty, and maintenance workers to be the "Force of Gravity"; the seniors are the "Stars of '58"; the underclassmen are "Satellites"; of course our athletes are known as "Comets"; the various school organizations resemble "Constellations"; and the special activities were held during "Moons of Special Events." And now to you, the reader, and to all those who helped us in any way we say, "Thank you, and we hope you like it."

My train arrived early so while waiting for my old friends, I picked up the El Paso Planetgraph in the lobby. To my surprise, I noticed that the editor was my old classmate, Bernard Shanks. The front page headlines read "President Wesley McKinley's Peace Pact with Russia proved successful After Time Trial. " To further friendly relations, both countries agreed to build a bridge from Alaska to Russia. The contract was given to the Sturm, Mool and R. Evans Construction Company of El Paso. On the next page I read in Dale Porth's sports column that Frank Vogel had completed three no-hit games during the 1973 World Series. Further on, I read that a new fruit—Banberry—had been produced by fruit farmer, Ray Arbuckle, by crossing a banana and a raspberry. In the next column, I discovered that Kenny Aucutt won a Blue Ribbon in a universal livestock exhibit for his fat cattle. Ken says his secret is feeding Bob McClure's Muscle Meal which Bob guarantees to add weight in man or beast. Turning to the society page, a picture of sophisticated Yvonne Porter, wrapped in a silver mink coat, caught my eye. She was standing by a new Colburn Jet-Away Sports Car given to her by one of her many admirers. Reading on, I found an article concerning the former Barbara Crump, now wife of a prominent dentist. She is planning to present a piano concert, and will donate the proceeds to Jerry Moritz. Jerry is engaged in die universal fight against juvenile delinquency. On the opposite page was Janet LaRochelle's column. Janet edits one of the country's most frequently read columns on men's clothing styles. In Karen Sprehe's fashion column, I noticed the newest women's apparel designed by Sharon Tyson. Model Virginia Mounce is pictured wearing one of these creations, which had the finishing touches adaed by the famous dressmaker, Barbara Busker. On page 4 was Margene Jones's "My Advice to You" column, in which appeared a letter from the former Ada Carmen saying, "I used your advice to catch my man and followed it successfully the entire year of our marriage." —18—Under T. V. listings, I found another name I recognized. It was that of Keith Blackmore, who now has his own show, "You Bet Your BootsI" Appearing on his show Is well-known actress and comedienne, Kay Edwards. Hearing a commotion near the door, I looked up and saw Judy Patton enthusiastically greeting 1973's answer to Charles Atlas, Jim Byrd. Joining the ever Increasing crowd were Dolly Sutton and Judy Furrow, stewardesses on the Jerry Holsten Airlines. After a short chat with Everett Stine about his wrestling career, I joined the group of admirers gathering around Terry Gei-selman, better known as 'Terrible Terry, " who had just returned from winning the 1973 Indianapolis 500. Standing nearby was his smiling ever-ready mechanic, George Evans. I hardly recognized Mardelle Famey without her freckles. She explained that Dr. Phil Cryer and his competent nurse, Judy Heiple had performed the miraculous operation and removed each and every one I Lady reporter for the Planetgraph, Cathy Welbes, after counting noses, Informed me that four people were not there to join In the wonderful time. Janice Hall and Carol Mohr, who devote their lives to teaching Illiterate hill-folk In Kentucky to read and write, traveling many miles with their book-mobile, were not there. Nor were Melvin Roth and Melvin Duncan who had Isolated themselves In a laboratory to complete work on a secret project for the government. In a fog of their own, I found cigar manufacturer, Larry Tipler and broker Jim McHugh, debating whether or not Jane Crusius’s new song, "How High the Sputnik?" would be a hit. While this conversation was going on their secretaries, Alice Hartman and Rachel Knepp were discussing the disgusting habits of bosses. Hearing a pleasant voice in the comer, I noticed telephone operator, Betty Fever, and pro-photographer, Charles Lampe, were reviewing the good old days at E.H.S. Charles still clicks with the chicks. While at the refreshment table, I overheard Randy Garrels telling station manager, Bill McKinley, and baker, Tom West, how he made his first million selling coon skins. At first his line was rather vague, but many refreshments later as I left the party with 400 coon skins, I was completely sold on his methods of doing business and was looking forward to 1988's reunion. —19— LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE SENIOR CLASS I, RAY ARBUCKLE, leave my dad to clean up after me. 1, DOROTHY ARMSTRONG, leave my quiet ways to Carol Smoots.

CHEERLEADERS This year the cheerleaders consisted of six varsity members and six junior varsity. One could hear their many yells at all the games cheering the team on to victory. One of the varsity cheerleaders, Dolly Sutton, had an unfortunate accident. On January 21, she fell and broke her ankle. This was the cause of Dolly's being unable to cheer the rest of the season. The cheerleaders had new suits this year. The junior varsity's were purple dresses with gold inlaid pleats, gold cuffs on the sleeves, and a gold ivy league buckle in back. The varsity’s were purple dresses with boat necks, full skirts, gold and white checked lining and tights, and gold megaphones on the skirts which had the girls’ names on them. The cheerleaders worked hard on organizing new cheers and reorganizing old ones to give more pep and enthusiasm. To add more color to their pep meetings, they often planned skits in which some of the students took part. JUNIOR VARSITY: J. Hinthome, J. Diener, L. Diener, J. Jones, L. Harshbarger, B.
