Class of Nineteen- Hundred and Seventy Presents "The Cometeer" El Paso High School El Paso, Illinois Hi !«OlH - Si" illIt seems there isn't enough time during one's senior year for everything that has to be done, but we, the Class of 1970, would like to take time now to recall some of the happenings of the past few years. On May 31, 1966, we, as a class of 84 students, were promoted from the 8th grade to high school. It was a great event. Following the graduation ceremony, we proceeded to the high school gym and presented the "Grand March." Later we attended a dance in gym entitled "Peppermint a Go-Go." It was a little crowded with 84 students, a band, teachers, and chaperones. The next fall we cautiously entered high school. For some unknown reason, the seniors didn't take an immediate liking to us. It was a common sight to see girls with lipstick smeared on their faces, and boys dripping to classes after having encountered senior boys near the water fountain. Ron Fever was class president that year. Allen Drake was vice-president, with Eileen Berlin serving as secretary and Mary Ellen Kilpatrick as treasurer. Since we needed money, we decided to have a "Slave Day" for our money-making project. Our services were auctioned off to the highest bidders. It was quite a profitable day. Several students brought high bids, but first prize went to Cheryl Pitzer who made $25 for the class. Cheryl, Diane Price, and Curt Heibenthal joined our class in our freshman year. The judges at the homecoming parade that year were not too impressed with our float entitled "We'll Huff and Puff to Victory." In the tradition of freshmen, we placed last. Things picked up during our sophomore year. Driver's Education was very exciting. Our instructor, "Mac," was a calm, brave person. He kept cool even when Marlene Berlin tried to disable a school bus by hitting it in the garage. He was quite understanding when Linda Nauman hit Mr. Claggett's car. He didn't even get angry when Kathy Volz nearly hit a tree. He seemed to enjoy the never-dull trips to the country, and he learned quite a bit about birds from Bob Miller. Class officers that year were: Don Steffen, president; Jim Higgins, vice-president; Becky Armstrong, secretary; and Gladys Moser, treasurer. During our sophomore year we lost several of our classmates who transferred to different schools. Vicki King, Karen Pollock, and Kurt Egger left El Paso for other schools. At homecoming that year, our float got second place. Our theme was "We'll Record a Victory." Things were even better our junior year. Our play, "Home Sweet Homicide," was our first attempt at that sort of thing. It was directed by Mrs. Margaret Hatt and included such stars as Mary Ellen Kilpatrick, Marlene Berlin, Gladys Moser, and Allen Drake. No one won an Academy Award for his performance, but Mark Duffy ended up with quite a stomach ache. He took his role seriously--eating and all. Becky Donze was student director. That year two of our classmates, Eileen and Marlene Berlin were hosts to our foreign exchange student, Carolyn Cousins, from Australia. Although Carolyn was a senior, she was very close to many of our classmates. Janet Schlipf was our class president, with Curt Heibenthal as vice-president, Diane Price, secretary, and Becky Armstrong as treasurer. The "Coronation Ball" was the theme for the Junior-Senior prom. We were hosts to the seniors at a banquet at the Elms. "The Count Five" played for the prom, and "The Surviving Souls" entertained at post-prom. Dave Harroun and Carolyn Cousins were King and Queen. Nancy Canull and Connie Talbert transferred to El Paso from Roanoke-Benson during our junior year, and Chuck Schlattman transferred from Minnesota. Beth Rosenbury left El Paso for Tennessee, Cheryl Pitzer moved to Normal, and Rita Ulrich went to Oklahoma City. Our homecoming float called "Hustle Your Bustle," out-ranked the seniors, and we won first place. Finally the time that everyone of us had been waiting for came. We were Seniors ! We were the rulers now. As "hazing freshmen" comes naturally to seniors, we felt it our duty to initiate them. However, the freshmen and Mr. Kays felt differently. Jane Etcheson was elected class president, and Dennis Haas our faithful vice-president. Our secretary was Mary McWilliams, and Eddie Graber was treasurer. Linda Nauman, Tom Martin, Becky Armstrong, Dennis Haas, and Janet Schlipf were among the stars of our senior play. It was called "The Bus Stops Here," and Mr. Grose directed with the assistance of student director, Carolyn Riker. Homecoming this year was a great event. For the first time since our class had been in high school, we won our homecoming game. We defeated the Flanagan Falcons. Our float, entitled, "We'll Trap Their Mousey Team," won second place to the junior float, but nothing could dull our spirts. The homecoming theme was "Wonderful World of Color." Presiding King and Queen were two seniors who had grown up together, Bob Hunsinger and Cheryl Heller. As seniors we were guests of the junior class at Prom. On June 1, 1970, 74 students received their high school diplomas, and left El Paso High, ready for the future. 2GREGORY ARMSTRONG "Of evils we must choose the least."

The Comets then caught fire and swept the last five games on the schedule and wound up with a respectable 6 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie. El Paso finished in second place in the Mid-State Conference with a 5--1--1 mark. Only six points separated the Comets from an undefeated season as the Comets absorbed an 18--14 opening loss to Eureka, an 8--8 tie with Gridley, and a 13--12 defeat at Minonk. El Paso's offense, which averaged 22.2 points per game, reached its peak with a 58--0 blasting of Chenoa in the third game of the season, while the defense shut out three opponents and limited three others to eight or less points. El Paso will lose the services of the following regulars: Line-backer-fullback, Curt Heibenthal; offensive-defensive guard, Bob Hunsinger; offensive-defensive tackle, Mike Stokes; offensive-defensive tackle, Dave Dunmire; defensive tackle, Don King-don; quarterback, Jim Higgins; defensive halfback, John Hinthorne; offensive end, Dennis Haas; and offensive guard, Merlin Haas. The Comets will return two all-Conference selections: defensive halfback, Mark Hynes, and offensive end John Higgins. Honorable mention selections Terry Wilkey at line-backer, halfback Leroy Jording, and defensive halfback Mike Snyder will boost the Comets' hopes for a successful season next year as will honorable mention Little All-State center Neil Kelsey, who was picked at honorable mention on both defensive and offensive all-conference squads. Terry Wilkey was voted "most spirited player" and Leroy Jording "most improved player," by their teammates.

All-Conference Team (Unanimous) Best outside shooter in the conference. KEN DRESSLER--E1 Paso's Top Rebounder and second leading scorer. Ken's highlight of the year was being selected to the All-Conference Team also. DOUG RATHBUN —"Mr. Hustle" on both offense and defense led to Doug's being voted our Most Valuable Player for 69-70. He will be definitely missed and tough to replace next year. JOE BAKER--Came on strong for our squad this year. Joe was voted by his teammates as the Most Improved Player this year. Joe has a great future--his hustle and desire will be respected by our opponents. MIKE SNYDER--Improvement in Mike could be seen by all. Mike's best effort was against Lexington--the night we won the conference title. We will look for even better play from Mike next year. CURT HEIBENTHAL--Curt was our sixth starter. Curt was a top-notch leader in handling press and led our team in assists. He is another conference champion who will be hard to replace. JIM HIGGINS--Jim was a good strong reserve forward. When called upon--Jim met the challenge. MARK DUFFY--Mark was very strong defensively. Mark helped tremendously in our first conference ball games. A knee injury hampered him in the late part of the season. DENNIS HOSTETLER--Dennis was a four-year basketball candidate. Although he played sparingly--he provided excellent enthusiasm and spirit to our ball team. DAVE RINKENSMEYER--Dave is an excellent shooter. He will have some fine shoes to fill for us next year. Look for him to really excel in the 1970-71 season. ANDY HAAS--Andy is a real scrapper. He hustles all the time on offense and defense. Although Andy is only a small man--he will make up his size in desire and hustle ... he doesn't know when to quit.).V.

The Varsity squad attended the I.S.U. Cheerleading clinic from June 23-28 along with 600 other cheerleaders. They received one 2nd place and two 3rd place ribbons for daily competition. In the fall, the cheerleaders held a clinic for girls in grades 4-8 who were interested in cheerleading. Coach Watson led the Comets to a successful football season which ended in a 2nd place conference position. Besides the victory over Flanagan Friday, October 17, a skit by the players an an enthusiastic pep meeting contributed to the success of Homecoming week. Football season was terminated by the annual football banquet which both squads had the pleasure of attending. The Varsity received new uniforms for the basketball season. When the Comets claimed a first place tie in the Midstate Conference the cheerleaders included the entire community in a surprise victory celebration for the coach and team. Coach Wolfe was proud to end the season by treating the cheerleaders and players to a victory dinner. TTie cheerleaders' success in promoting school spirit with the cooperation and advice of Mrs. Jean Rodgers added up to a truly memorable 1969-70 athletic season.

Also in October, we attended the annual Section 17 Rally in Normal. In November, we held a bake sale at the IGA. Then just before Christmas vacation, we invited a lady from the Illinois Power Company to show a film on ideas for holiday decorating. It was very interesting and gave the girls a lot of ideas on decorating. February brought our candy sale. It was very profitable and everyone enjoyed the candy very much. For the month of March, we plan a demonstration on make-up by a local lady. Instead of taking fruit baskets to the local nursing home at Christmas time, we decided to take fruit baskets to them around Easter. We felt they would appreciate them more at that time, since few people think of them at Easter. The one thing most of the girls look forward to, is the trip in the spring. This year we plan a trip to Chicago on April 11. To sum up the year, we plan our annual Mother Daughter Tea and installation of the new officers in May. This year we have asked a lady from Northern Illinois Gas Company to show a film on "Careers in Home-making." The 1970 Betty Crocker Award went to Karen Bechtold.FIRST ROW: W. Furrow, T. Punke, M.

TREhlCH CLUB 57"I promise to uphold the ideals of the Girls' Athletic Association, By promoting interest in athletics and the out-of-doors; By living so that I may be healthy and strong; By making good sportsmanship a constant factor in my conduct." 14 ) a I The C.A.A.'s first activity this year was hiking. Seven hikes, totaling 39 miles were offered. One hike was to Waldo Township Hall, north of Gridley, where the girls met the Flanagan C.A.A. hikers and had supper together. We participated in a State workshop at Kaneland High School near Maple Park in October. Our president was selected to be a recorder for one of the discussion groups, our sponsor and two delegates attended discussion groups. Cageball, bowling and swimming were the winter sports. El Paso entered five girls, Lois Aylward, Pam Miller, Cindy Crump, Susan Hunsinger, and Rhonda Graham in the state postal bowling tournament. Spring sports included archery, softball, and campcraft. Money making projects this year were a flower sale at homecoming and a sale of T-shirts, sweater-shirts, and sleep-shirts later in the year. The C.A.A. assisted the cheerleaders by providing cookies for the basketball victory celebration. The "Fast Justice" a group of musicians from Bloomington, was featured at the C.A.A. dance held under crepe paper and mod-flowers in late February. A formal candle lite ceremony initiated 33 new members into the Girl's Athletic Association. A supper honoring the initiates was held in the Home Economics room followed by cageball and peteka in the gym. Several membeis earned local and state awards by accumulating activity points. Three points are awarded for each hour a girl takes part in a C.A.A. organized sport. Points are carried over from year to year with a total of 300 needed for the 4th year award, an outline of our state presented by the Illinois League of High School C.A.A. BOARD KNEELING: K.

The Key Club was established at El Paso High School by Curt Mahaffey and Superintendent Walter Claggett of the El Paso Kiwanis Club in 1959. Through the years it has been one of the outstanding Key Clubs in the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District. There are 5 clubs in Division 10; they are Pontiac, Woodland, Streator, Marquette at Ottawa, and El Paso. The EPHS Key Club has won many outstanding awards and trophies in competition with over 250 Key Clubs in the I-I District. The club has had several Lt. Governors and 1 Governor. Bill Birch has been selected to serve as Lt. Governor for 1970-71.The Art Club is new this year, and has been very active. In the fall they created the Peter Max Mash, a fluorescent and black light effect dance. They earned enough money to take a trip to the Art Institute in Chicago. They dined at the famous Kungsholm Scandinavian Restaurant on Michigan Avenue, and took a bus tour through State Street. The Art Club also sponsored a St. Patrick's Day bake sale to make money for future projects and tours. FIRST ROW: G. Crusius, Sec., D. Kearfott, Pres., J. Schlipf, V.-Pres., M. Kitchell, Treas.

Library Club During the past year, members of the El Paso High School Library Club participated in a variety of activities. Paperback books were sold by the club during the fall Book Fair in order to earn money which was to be used to buy books for the library. The club's second activity was attending the play, "Oedipus Rex," at Illinois State University. Using the Book Fair profits, overdue book fines, and the club's membership dues for 1969-1970, two committees of Library Club members selected paperback books which they thought students would like to have added to the library's collection. A revolving paperback display rack was also donated to the library by the Library Club. In addition to the special activities of the club, during their study halls, Library Club members served as student librarians in both the high school and the grade school libraries. Since this was the first year for a Central Library at the grade school, the student librarians were responsible for helping the librarian to teach grade school students how to use the library and for helping to organize the library's book collection. 6364The Esquires 1st ROW (L. to R.): R.

The first appearance for the Marching Comets was in September leading the annual Com Festival Parade. The Comets performed at all the home football games, doing intricate routines. They gave spirit to the fans at the pep rallies. In December, the Concert Band and Chorus combined to present the annual Christmas concert for the public. Linda Nauman represented the El Paso Chorus in the Illinois All-State Chorus on January 24 and March 8. Arthur Drake represented his school in touring Europe with the Band of America. On March 12, the Band presented its annual winter concert. The Stage Band also performed. On March 14 the Music Department participated in the contest at Class-ford, taking 11 solos and 7 ensembles. The Band toured Minonk and Flanagan on April 14 in preparation for contest. Then on April 18, the Chorus, the Girls' Chorus, and the Band went to Glassford to participate in contest. It is the goal of the Music Department at El Paso High School to provide a varied program which includes all phases of music, both vocal and instrumental. Each student develops certain musical skills by enrolling in the various performing organizations. The object of each performance is to culminate and focus the attention of the student on all factors necessary in producing a quality performance. Courses which carry credit and activities offered to the student are Concert Chorus, Girls' Glee Club, Madrigal Singers, both vocal and instrumental solos and ensembles, Stage Band, Concert Band, Pep Band, Marching Band, Pom-Pom Drill Team and the production of a musical. There is also participation in contests, exchange concerts, University-sponsored clinics and a County Instrumental and Vocal Festival, which is held every two years. The Music Department is supported by the El Paso Music Boosters Club. One of the functions is that of providing financial assistance for the growth of the music department through such activity as providing the music camp scholarships, supporting music projects and sharing in the cost of departmental equipment with the Board of Education. This year the department has sponsored two assemblies for the High School. They were the Peoria Symphony String Quartet and the Illinois State University Brass Quintet. 69Seniors Star in "The Bus Stops Here" Martha Baker ................Linda Nauman Jerry Wald...................Tom Martin Jenny Sims ..................Jane Etcheson J.

A leaf painted Beautifully by frost. Falls bitterly to death. --Sue Haas In the middle of spring, The song of a bird Is a beautiful thing. --Pat Hinthome Fearful is the bee, Because if he has stung one He must now fall dead. --Carol Enright Fall is a dreary time, For then is the time, All life begins to die. --Denise Fever AUTUMN Autumn is when the leaves turn red, Gold, and brown. The grass is dead. The birds leave their nests in trees, And turn south on a peaceful breeze. The fox and deer grow thick hair; So does the rabbit, coon, and bear. The bear hibernates and no longer roams. The squirrels gather nuts in their tree-top homes. Now the leaves are gone, nuts stored away; For today is Autumn's very last day. --Tom Buster 73OrientalCLASS WILL I, CREC ARMSTRONG, leave!
