KEN DRESSLER- - though a late-comer to basketball, Ken's feeling toward the game, his willingness to work hard, and his ability can make him a standout. CRAIC CONSTANT-a fine young athlete--we hated to see him move away. We all wish him the best and say he can play on our team any time. DOUG RATHBUN--a player who gets noticeably better with each game. His defense and speed should make him one of the real tough ones next year. MIKE SNYDER--a player who learning to do it all. His hustle, desire, and defense are making him a tough all-round performer. CURT HEIBENTHAL--every team needs a steady ball handler who doesn't rattle under pressure. At El Paso, his name is Curt. MARK DUFFY--a tough com- petitor who can hustle and play offense and defense.

Foreign Laboratory. The Thanksgiving dinner was combined with the former Spanish Club. Entertainment was provided by the "19th Amendment." The field trip to I.S.U.'s Foreign Laboratory was made by the French II classes. This proved to be exciting and memorable. OFFICERS FOR 1968-69 President: Mike Duffy Vice-President: Allen Drake Secretary: Carolyn Riker Treasurer: Diana Nohren 67Check and decorating of El Paso’s business district Club's activities. Influence Through Example This is the phrase designated as the adminis- trative theme of all Key Clubs for 1968-69. Keep- ing these words in mind, the Key Club of El Paso High School directed many of its projects to the children of our area. Once again the members or- ganized a Saturday recreation program for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. The bi-weekly programs pro- vided the boys with instructions in basketball, tumbling, swimming, and various track activities. On alternate Saturdays, cartoons and a feature movie were shown for the enjoyment of all area youths. On several occasions Key Clubbers from El Paso picked up "buddies" at Salem Children's Home and treated them to a day away from the routine. Their trip carried them from basketball courts and bowling alleys to football games at the U. of I. Organization of the National Vehicle Safety for Christmas were just two outward signs of the Key The El Paso Key Clubber rounded up another year of serving their community, school and nation by honoring their parents and advisors at the annual Parent Appreciation Banquet.
