CometeerT MEMORIES PRESSED BETWEEN THE PAGES OF OUR TIMES As we near the end of our Senior year, we begin to realize that soon many of the things we take for granted will be no more—the spirited games, the weekend parties and the hated semester exams will soon be memories of the past. Next year we will go our separate ways, many of us never to see one another again. Now is the time for us to stop and look back on these memories— laugh at the good times, weigh the bad, remember the joys and the sorrows and reflect on our days at El Paso High School. So remember: Life goes by so fast, Stop for a moment---- And Reflect. 2ADMINISTRATION FACULTYBoard Of Education WALLACE ETCH-ESON, Pres., JOHN SUTTON, Secty., MELVIN MORELAND, DONALD ZIMMERMAN, GENE WILKEY, MONTE LINDSEY, GILBERT KAUFMAN.

We opened the season with losses to Eureka and to Minonk-Dana-Rutland, then finished the season undefeated with impressive victories over Flanagan, Woodland, Lexington, Gridley, Chenoa, and Farmer City-Mansfield. The highlight of the season was a conference championship which El Paso hasn't enjoyed since 1965. Quarterback JOE BAKER, and all-conference guard and defensive end DOUG NOHREN captained the Comets and did an outstanding job of leading the team to the conference championship. BAKER was a cool customer on the field. He read the defenses well and never seemed to get rattled in the tough situations. NOHREN, along with another all-conference player, DAVE ARMSTRONG, opened tremendous holes on the right side of the line for our running backs. The blocking on the left side was handled by DON CRAIG and CHARLES SCHRECK. Fullback LEROY JORDING, a unaminous all-conference pick, gained over 900 yards on the ground. He and another running back, DAN KEARFOTT, were tough to bring down in the open field. Center, MIKE YOUNG, who was converted from guard, also did a fine job of blocking. RANDY FAULK led the team in pass receptions and along with the other end, junior JOHN CAMPBELL, did a good job of blocking on the outside. The other seniors who played on the meat squad for us this year were LEROY SERVIS, RODNEY WOLFE, BRUCE NORTH and foreign exchange student ROGER SAULCE. One of the defensive standouts for the Coments was junior TOM WILKEY, a linebacker, who led the team in tackles with 84 1 4. The remainder of the juniors who played regular this year and who will be welcomed back next year are MIKE HYNES, linebacker; JIM MCWILLIAMS, halfback; STEVE ARMSTRONG, halfback; LOREN BREACH, tackle; GARY RAYMER, linebacker; WAYNE FURROW, linebacker; JOHN JONES, tackle; and KEN SCHUMACHER, defensive end. This group of young men did a fine job this season—the coaching staff is very proud of them. I would like to wish them the best of luck in the future and continued success in whatever ventures they may attempt. Congratulations 1971 FOOTBALL COMETS !

He filled in quite ably for the entire year. RICK COX--although it was his first year of playing since grade school . . . Rick showed his opponents that he was an able performer. He was elected by his teammates as El Paso's "Most Improved" player. JOHN KNEPP—a first year's starter. John was a floor-leader and helped considerably in practice sessions as well as ball games. STEVE ARMS-STRONG--a very quick and deceptive guardforward. With ball handling improvement, Steve could develop into quite an outstanding player. JOHN CAMPBELL--"Soup" was a starting forward all year. With strength and agility we look forward for him to really excel in 1972-73. RANDY DUNCAN--he was our sixth starter. Randy has size and with more confidence and added strength could become a very able performer in 72-73. JOE BAKER--E1 Paso's leading scorrer and rebounder. He was elected all-conterence center in the Midstate Conference. He was elected as "Most Valuable" and "Honorary Captain" by his teammates. He completes his third year as starting center and was highly respected by our opponents. He will be sorely missed but we look forward to watching him play college basketball.

This fall Key Club members painted the football bleachers. Seeing the need for bike safety, Key Club held a bicycle safety program where pamphlets were handed out and talks were given by several Keyclubbers about bike safety. The recreational program this year included swimming, basketball, and wrestling. More than 50 grade school boys attended. In the keeping of community service, members conducted a census of pre-school children. To promote club spirit, Key Club held several competitive games with other school organizations. A soccer match with FFA was held and Key Club played basketball with the men's faculty and FFA. Several members attended the annual District Convention at Chicago. Along with having fun, everyone learned a lot. Our home club member and Lt. Govenor, Don Miller, received an award for Outstanding Lt. Govenor. Thanks to our faculty advisor, Mr. Grose, and the Kiwanis Committee on Key Club, the El Paso High Key Club had a progressive year.

To begin the year, we had an initiation picnic for incoming members at the Corn Belt Park. The senior girls held a bake sale to make money for the April 22 trip to Chicago. The senior girls spent the night at the Palmer House, toured the Chicago Tribune, shopped at Carson's (watching all of the clothes tags), ate supper at George Diamonds, and then went to the Blackstone Theatre to see "Sleuth". On Sunday the return trip was by tTain to Bloomington. On May 16, a Mother-Daughter Banquet was held and the girls of the Home Ec. classes modeled the garments they had made throughout the year. Altogether the year was a most enjoyable and successful one. 7071AFS The American Field Service Club has been very active this past year. A number of activities were staged with the inclusion of Roger Saulce our AFS student from France, to heljj make his stay a more pleasant one. Some of the activities were a welcome party and surprise birthday party for our foreign friend, a bake sale and a Christmas present to Roger of a phone call to France. This year's plans are concluding with the acceptance of TWO exchange students to El Paso next year (A First!). Mary Benedict, a Junior, will also be representing El Paso as she goes abroad for the summer. (Another first! !). Notre bon ami, Roger. 72 Mary Benedict. . .will be a summer exchange student abroad.Girls' Track Team G.A.A. sports activities offered this year were: Archery, hiking, bowling, swimming, dodgeball, track and softball. The last hike was to Secor Grade School where Roanoke G.A.A. met us for supper. A ski trip to Lisle, Illinois in very cold January weather was enjoyed by 33 members. An initation breakfast was held in February. The G.A.A. entered teams in the state postal archery and bowling tournaments. Several G.A.A. members were on the girls track team, which hosted a joint Jr. and Sr. High meet in El Paso. The team also entered a meet at Chenoa High School. G.A.A. sponsored a very successful donkey basketball game in February in which teams representing the fire dept., mothers club, facility and G.A.A. played. The G.A.A. team not only won their basketball games but made a profit of $925.00 on the event. Representatives traveled to Vandalia in the fall for a State work shop and to a playday in Flanagan. Two girls were selected to go to the state G.A.A. camp at lake Bloomington during June. Karen Pinkham was elected to receive the Fay Crusius award. Terry Morgan and Sharon Sutton completed 50 miles of swimming to become the first in El Paso to receive the Red Cross Swimming Award. G.A.A. seniors finished the year with a camping trip using new equipment purchased with profits from the donkey-ball game. 1st ROW-T. Haas, K. Redenius, J. Ledford, C. Allen, P. Miller, S. Haas, J.

Newspaper Staff In November, 1971, Cindy Riggs and Cathy Loisel had an idea: El Paso High needed a school newspaper. They began to contact likely prospects to join the staff. In December, this staff held its first meeting. It was decided that the newspaper would be called THE PAPER! and that Susan Haas and Arthur Drake would be the co-editors. Under the watchful eye of Mrs. Stiles, the first issue of THE PAPER! was released in January 1972. Contained in its six pages (not including the front cover), were an editorial, two essays, a sports page, a poll, the first of a series of regular feature article called "Spotlight," and a few smaller articles. Four more issues were released until the end of the school year, each succeeding issue surpassing the previous one. Next year, under the able leadership of Richard Berlin, THE PAPER! will continue to raise itself to an even higher quality of reading.
