Being down 25 to 6 at the end of the first half, El Paso managed to score only once in the third quarter while the Redbirds extended their lead 31 to 12. With seven minutes remaining in the last quarter and many of the disappointed fans leaving, the Comets caught fire. Harvey executed perfect plays with Armstrong chalking up two quick TD'S. With two minutes on the clock, the Comet's rally seemed sure to be in vain as Armstrong fumbled on a punt return. But it wasn't over as the Comets recovered a fumble on the next play and Quirm received a pass for the winning TD. This vaulted the Comets to first place and the next two decisive victories over Minonk and Cornell gave ths school its first conference championship in seven years. 35Senior LARRY KNAPP All-Conference JOHN ARMSTRONG All-Conference BOB KNEPP All-Conference BILL SEGGERMAN All-Conference RON EVANS Tackling Trophy All-Conference Midstate R.

He was the quarterback of our ball club because of his fine passing ability. John also was probably our most solid defensive ballplayer. LEO HAAS I felt by the end of the year Leo was the most improved ballplayer on the team. He worked hard, rebounded well, and had a real determined attitude. L e LARRY KNAPP "Mr. Competitor" is the name for Larry. A real hard worker with a wonderful team attitude. His use of speed was ideal for our fast-break type of play. It was certainly a pleasure to work with such fine young men, and it will be a difficult job replacing them. 40Cheerleaders The Varsity Cheerleaders and the Junior Varsity Cheerleaders work together to boost school spirit and encourage sportsmanship. Both squads represented El Paso High School well and backed the Comets with pep and enthusiasm.

Members of the chapter sponsored a bake sale, U.N. Day, World Clothing Week, F.H.A. week and Law Day assembly. The girls were kept busy making "Get out and Vote" posters, serving punch at the Homecoming Dance, serving the Faculty-Board Dinner, planning the formal initiation, and during the Christmas season they went caroling at the rest homes.

Wherever they went, they made a tremendous impression with their new uniforms. The band, under the direction of Thomas Swain, was led by drum major Joan Edwards. The band's twirler was again Vickie Armstrong, and majorettes included Carolyn Harper, Linda Talbert, and Kay Ingerski. The Marching Comets started the season with a parade in Streator, Illinois, helping to celebrate Labor Day. The band accepted an invitation to march at the Gridley Homecoming football game in Gridley. The next day they marched in the I.W.U. homecoming parade. Against open-class competition, they took the first-place trophy for the best high school marching band. The band marched at all home football games, presenting flashy pre-game and precision half-time shows.
