It was a great success due to the skill of the members of the cast and their capable director, Mrs. Rinkenberger. 4Program by Touring Choir The Millikin Choir from Millikin University, Decatur, Illinois, under the direction of Richard D. Hoffland, presented a fine assembly concert on February 1. Their program included music from the 17th Century, contemporary works and spirituals. As is customary, the choir ended their program with "Praise to the Lord", by F Melius Christiansen. This song has come to be a tradition with the Millikin Choir. It has been the closing song for each concert for the past seven years. The Millikin Choir is composed fof 46 students drawn from the regular student body of the University. Approximately three-fourths are majoring in music in the University's School of Music. The remaining members of the choir are drawn from the College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Business and Industrial Management. Membership in the choir is open to all students who can qualify musically and who are able to maintain an adequate academic record. Each year the choir makes an annual tour and in addition makes frequent appearances throughout the Midwest. The choir was on the last leg of their tour for 1967 when they appeared at El Paso. They were well received by the student body and have an open invitation to return again.

The predominately senior ball club averaged 74 points per game and held opponents to an average of 59 points. Twice the club scored over 100 points setting a school record of 104 points in a single game. The Comets were paced by senior forward Jon Etcheson, one of the finest basketball players in the state. "Red" set two records in his career at El Paso. His total of 548 set a season scoring record, and his three year varsity, that of 1221, was a school high. To go with Etcheson's fine performance was a spirit of team play that was outstanding. Each player's unselfish attitude and willingness to work hard made it a fine team, and a great one to work with from a coach's viewpoint. J.V. Squad FIRST ROW (L. to R.) J. Higgins, T. Everett, M.

ETCHESON--Repeat All-Conference, unanimous senior year--varsity scoring record 1221 in three years--season record 548 points—most valuable player senior year—free throw trophy senior year--honorable mention to Little All-State--a fine all around basketball player—an outstanding shooter. K. ROBERTS--A strong rebounder and an outstanding defensive player. All-Conference senior year. Keith made it because he tries harder. K. KAYS—All-Conference senior year. A rugged rebounder and good shooter. His humor and wit were very important. He gave the team a lot of backbone. R. BOHLANDER--A11 of the opposing guards will be glad when "Chunky" is no longer around to harass them. No one can believe his shot under the basket. D. STIMPERT—The best one-legged ball player around. He and Rick made a very tough pair of defensive guards. Big men always wondered at the way he "tipped". Returning Next Dave Fever—Manager 22 Rick HeikenComets Coach Sullivan T. WICKENHAUSER--Tom is equally at home as a guard or a forward. An outstanding passer and impossible to push around. J. GREENE--A strong forward, deceptively quick, and a good rebounder. The "Silent Sam" of the team. J. HANKEY--A quick ball player with a good "head" for the game. John never will be caught napping. A good shooter, who I wish would have shot more. R. HEIKPN—A tall player with a good attitude. Outstanding feature--he is back next year. A good rebounder who has a big job next year. Can do. C. KNEPP--The way he moves there may be two of him. A lot of speed, a good defense, and a JUNIOR. S. DAVISON—Most people not connected with the team don't know what a good outside shooter this boy is. Next year he will demonstrate.

Several boys went on an end-of-the-year trip to Indiana Beach. Later that summer, Trent Simpson and Curt Knepp represented our Chapter at the State FFA convention. A very good com crop was harvested last fall from our 11 acre ag plot. Another money-making project was selling garden seeds. The FHA co-sponsored the Plowboy Prom with our Chapter. We sponsored a basketball tourney with other FFA chapters, conducted a pest-control contest, constructed a sand box to clean irons at the golf course, put a new roof on the Junior stand, put up "Welcome to El Paso" signs along the highway, and awarded this year's chain gilt to George Gauger. A Father-Son Awards Banquet was held May 16th, and this year's trip will be to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The Chapter sent representatives to the Section 9 activities and contests. Jim Stoller participated on the District level for Star Farmer and Public Speaking. The Chapter sent teams to state judging contests in meat, milk, grain, dairy, and fat stock. Teams went to two breed judging contests, including the Duroc in which El Paso placed first. El Paso had two boys receive the State Farmer Degree; Keith Kelsey, and Jim Stoller. This was the first time in 13 years there has been more than 1. 39El Circulo Espanol ROW Is M. Gilliand, R. Heiken, S. Davison, S. Pinkham, L. Blackmore, J. Sampen. ROW 2: K. Evans, S. Vandegraft, J.

The purpose of the foreign language clubs of El Paso High School is to foster a better understanding of the language and of the Spanish--and French-speaking people of the world. Through a better understanding, the students can better work for peace in the world. Both clubs usually meet bi-monthly in order to conduct the business of the clubs. In addition to these meetings, parties are sometimes held in the evenings. Membership of the clubs includes all the students who are presently nenrolled in a foreign language class or who have previously been enrolled. The combined membership of the clubs is 128 members.

The El Paso Girls' Athletic Association is an active group that "works and strives to reach our highest aims" — aims set forth by the Illinois League of High School G.A.A.'s. Each girl must earn at least 24 points each year by participating in the after school sports program to be a member. Sports offered this year included hiking, soccer, archery, bowling, cage ball, swimming, softball, and camping. The G. A. A. entered the State Archery Contest and placed in the top 25%. Delegates were sent to playdays at Normal Comm, and Pontiac high schools during the year and to the State G.A.A. leadership camp during the summer. A supper was held honoring the new members in January. Five members of the Peoria School of Judo and Karate provided a program after the supper with G.A.A. members from other schools as guests. A camping trip for senior members was the highlight of the spring activities Cook-outs for the whole group were also a popular part of the camping program but hiking was the most popular activity with more girls participating in it than any of the other activities.

"INITIATE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY" . . . International Key Club theme for 1967, exemplifies the many activities carried on by the El Paso High School Key Club. The club participated in the annual district project which is to collect soap for the Dixon State Children's Home, and collected over 800 bars of soap. The Key Club was given the responsibility of the refreshment stand at games, and of candy sales at noon. Over 50 4th, 5th, and 6th graders participated in the annual recreation program. Swimming, basketball, tumbling, and wrestling were offered. Key Clubbers worked after school, weekends, and vacation periods redecorating the "Teen Trap." Through these, and all their activities, the Key Club has served school, community, and state. The group was greatly aided and encouraged in their many projects by Mr. Hallock, faculty advisor; and Curt Mahaffey, Rev. Ken Christiansen, and Tom Swain, of Kiwanis Club. 43EL PASO HIGH SCHOOL CONCERT BAND FLUTE Patsy Edwards Linda Mahaffey Cathy Roy Margaret Stokes Ellen Wickenhauser Fay Crusius Curt Eggar Rita Ulrich Diana Nohren Susan Brucker Connie Knapp Susan Sparks ALTO CLARINET OBOE Jill Wendland Marilyn Berg BASSOON Reg White CLARINET Don Sampen Barb Lykkebak Jane Salyards Cyndy Mayne BASS CLARINET Myra Duffy Martha McGough Gladys Moser Pat Byerly Debbie Wickenhauser Mary McWilliams CONTRA-BASS CLARINET Carol Cox Judy Wessel ALTO SAX Linda Nauman John Sampen Mike Duffy Karen Kaufman Eileen Berlin Doug Shadewaldt TENOR SAX Allen Drake Danny Steffen BARITONE FRENCH HORN Randy Bailey Pat Enright Marlene Berlin Ray Attig George Scheer PERCUSSION Mike McWilliams CORNET Geniece McGhee Jerry Lay Pam Nohren Ron Fever Roger Jones John Lykkebak Carolyn Riker Curt Heibenthal Mark Duffy Don Steffen Pat Pitzer Grant Van Scyoc TROMBONE Dennis Grube 44EL PASO HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING COMETS The Marching Comets first appeared in our opening game of the football season at Eureka.
