lt has not been the primary purpose of the
editorial staff to compile a volume of statistics
or tabulated information concerning the school
or its work, though we hope and believe that the
progress of our Alma Mater will be made evident,
and that this book will reflect the true El Paso

victories and in so few years, secured for us a
place of recognized standing among our rival
lt has, hovvever, been our aim to put together
in permanent and accessible form those things
vvhich, when time has made it difficult, will help
us recall the faces of friends vvho cheered us
when discouraged, and the incidents which re-
lieved the monotony of recurring duties, little
items which will help us to live again among the
scenes and hear the vvords which made our years
so happy here. ln short, We have endeavored to
give you a treasured souvenir of the "good ole

EL PASO HIGH SCHOOL
El Paso High School, the school on the side of the hill, has stood
thru the years giving more and more to each student who enters it,
and establishing in its course of time, new traditions that will for-
ever live with the school, To a school such as ours, no person could
deny it faithfulness. We feel that it is our goal when we begin as
Freshmen, that it is our desire as we progress to Sophomores, that
it is our ambition as we step forward to Juniors, and that it is a
part of us when we step into Seniorship. Then as we are graduated,
the school becomes a past so vivid it seems to be the present. Never
do we leave the school, for life is a complete school of learning. All
who are educated in the El Paso High School feel the binding power
and surging school spirit that prevails in it and its surroundings. Our
school was first located in what is now known as The Elks Club,
later being moved to the school now called Morehead. The present
location was completed in l9l6 and is rated as one of the finest
schools in the Southwest. The stadium, with a capacity of l0,000,
is named the Sun Bowl.
The honors which have been bestowed on our school are too
numerous to account for in detail. Our students, loving their school,
have worked earnestly to give recognition and glory to this insti-
tution which although many have graduated, is still endeared in their
In any educational institute, school spirit backs all, accomplishes
all and is the basis of all enterprises successfully undertaken, By
school spirit we mean the feeling which surges within us pushing us
ahead to better things, making our goal seem nearer to us, arousing
in us a new will to attain it, and lastly giving us the never-failing
courage to put our school at the top,
All visitors who enter the school find that they are no longer
visitors but practically one of us. Meaning by that that they are
made to feel accustomed to their surroundings and join in activities
other than as spectators. lt is a known fact to all visitors of the
relationship between students and faculty. Mutual courtesies and
friendliness are excelled nowhere.
Students, it would be hard to find a school to compare with ours,
so if by chance, you haven't done so, before-LOOK UP TO YOUR
SCHOOL-it's here to help you. Be loyal Tigers, to fight and to gain

Steps in Development of Texas
Cabeza De Vaca Enters Texas-Alvor Nunez, first white man definitely known to have
set foot on soil of Texas -- more familiarly known as Cabeza de Vaca -survivor of terrifying
experiences that reduced the ship's crew to one man - was impressed sufficiently by natural sur-
roundings to have written a record of his adventures- a source of inspiration to others - so that
the history of Texas may be said to date from a day in i528 when a remnant of Panfilo de
Narvaez's expedition-fitted out as a part of Spain's expansion program-washed ashore at
the present site of Galveston. De Vaca, more fortunate than his miserable companions-eluded
his Indian captors-and found his way thru the wilderness back to Mexico after many years-
to bring the world a fantastic story of a strange new land on the shores of the Mexican Gulf.

Coronado and His Adventures-Leading his armed columns-adventurers arrayed in
medieval splendor-Coronado pursued the dancing mirages of the fabulous cities of Cibolo-
a "will-o-the-wisp" that led across the burning wastes of the Southvvest.- It remained for later
men to discover Quivera-but not as a land of gold and treasureesuch as was envisioned by
conquistadores of i540--but a land of rich mineral resources which were never dreamed of-
Coronado and his men-who traversed many weary milese- inspired by their acts those later
men who came and established an empire according to the ways of the civilized world.

Establishment of the Missions - Religious fervor, earnestly desiring to convert Indians
to Christianity-combined with political undercurrent - provoked the establishment of Spanish
mission colonies in early l69O-when Father Massanet- who journeyed the previous year with
Alonso de Leon to La Salle's ill-fated colony--opened a mission near the present town of
Crockett-hostility of the Indians, however, and the hardships caused the missions to be
abandoned. Nevertheless, the l8th century held in store a new period of mission development
-the missions were encountered by misfortune and abandoned-those ot greatest impor-
tance were moved to San Antonio and permanently established.

' Derivation of Name Texas-Alvarez de Peneda, Spanish navigator and map maker.
sailed along the Gulf Coast and Florida in l5l9 and named the intervening coastal country
Amichal. Various other names were subsequently applied to the region-and in the early
mission days the name TEXAS came into common usage-originating according to some au-
thorities, from the roff-shaped abodes of native Indians-called in Spanish "teias" or "texas"
--others believe that the name was derived from a shortening ot Mixtecas-as the inhabitants
were called, being descendants. The most popular explanation credits the name to an Indian
word of salutation, tehas-a synonym for friend, that greeted the ears of Spanish explorers
in East Texas.

Mexican army under Captain Castenado- marched on Gonzales with an order to surrender a

citizens hurriedly organized several volunteer companiesf -and the forces under Col. John H.

Battle of San Jacinto
The most glorious and decisive event of the
entire struggle for Texas Independence was the
Battle of San Jacinto-one of the shortest and
most important battles of the worlds warfare-
yet it marked the long culmination of hardship
Ma final, enlightening day that brought succor
after months of suffering. Not the least to
suffer was Sam Houston-for his was the job
to restrain the eager Texans in the face of ridi-
cule, Sam Houston decided the chance had
come as he surveyed the over-confident Mexicans
on the Buffalo Bank -- and in a few minutes on
the afternoon of April Zi, IS36, the Texans

The Texas Republic Progresses
Sam l-louston, a leader in war-was equally
as fine a leader at peace, and like George Wash-
ington, he played a major part in the organiza-
tion ot government and social and economic life
atter he had assisted in throwing oft the bonds
of oppression. The great natural resources re-
sponded immediately to developmentkand in a
tew years thriving rural communities covered the
country almost entirely-a far oft cry from
conditions reigning two decades before. Under
l-louston, Lamar and Jones, the laws were form-
ulated-commerce, diplomacy, education and
industry prospered- in short, Texas was begin-
ning to benetit from the natural wealth that had
made the territory many times a scene ot con-

Texas Joins the Union
The first real development in Texas- it has
been pointed out -a took place with the intro-
duction of American families into Texas. Spain,
and later Mexico, made no attempt to maintain
a friendly feeling with these colonies -families
often sent their children to other states to be
educated, Texas was always considered a natu-
ral social, economic, and political subdivision of
the United States. When Mexico violated her
agreements, the colonists felt that they were no
longer bound -- and Texas had a right to do as
she wished. After the Republic was established
Texas and the United States grew closer. lt
was no surprise to the world when on June 23,
l845, the Congress of Texas passed a joint reso-
lution of annexation which had been approved
by the Congress of the United States. On
July 4, following-after a convention-this
was ratified by the people and went into effect.

OTHOL MARTIN MARSHALL PENNINGTON HARRY BIVINS
TIGERS VICTORIOUS IN I935
Due to the excellent coaching and brilliancy of mind of Coach Othol Martin, the Tigers
had a most successful football season.
Holding their opponents to three lone touchdowns, the galloping El Paso High School
Tigers won nine out of the eleven games played. Such teams as the Albuquerque Indians, the
Lubbock Westerners, and the Bowie Bears fell before the strong running and passing attack
f the orange and black The team was defeated by the revengeful Phoenix Coyotes after the
Tigers had advanced on two occasions within the Coyotes' five yard line and had failed to score.
The Tigers won the remainder of the scheduled games and emerged City and District Cham-
pions by defeating Austin High School by the score of 33-O on Thanksgiving Day, The team
was defeated in San Angelo by the San Angelo Bobcats in the bi-district fray 7-O.
A harder running, faster charging, and more alert group of young men has not been seen
on the local gridiron before. And may the teams of '36, '37, in fact, may all the teams in the
future follow the example set forth by our fighting l935 elevenl

Salvador played end on the team this year. He was an outstanding blocker and a
tower of strength on the defense. Mena was a Junior the last season, we expect great
things of Salvador next season.
Reading was the most versatile player on the squad, he could play any
position on the team with equal ability. However, he played end position the
greater part of theseason where he proved himself to be a tower of strength.

Joe is another one ot our graduating lettermen He was a regular on th
team until he was injured in the Lubbock game However Joe is highly responsible
for our victory over the Westerners
Richard played regular tackle
on the team. He was liked and

well as by his opponents. Dick
was characterized by his sports-
man-like and never - say - die
spirit. Desouches was another

H. C. WEISSINGER:
H, C. is another one ot our three year letter-
men that has played his last game for El Paso
High School. Weissinger starred in the Las
Cruces and Lubbock games. His loss will be
felt greatly next season.
Although Tony was a "first-year" man this past season, he could always be
depended upon to play an alert, smart ball game Vega is slated for a tirst string
berth next season, He played well in the Ysleta and Austin games,
A three-year letterman, George was
a stalwart of strength on the defense
as well as being a good ground-gainer
on a "guard around" play. Attel was
undoubtedly the outstanding line-man
on the Tiger squad. He was placed on
the All-District Eleven by every paper,
Willard starred at a regular half-back post until he was injured in the Bowie
game. He was forced to remain on the side-lines until the San Angelo game in which
he displayed the characteristic gameness for which he is noted. Woolverton was a
Junior this past seasong great things should be expected of him next year,
Charles played the position ot half-back. He was leading scorer in the city
and the most elusive man in the district. He was placed on the All-City team
by every paper.
Pat came from behind to push aside all bidders for the wing-back position.
His blocking was exceptionally good and he could always be depended upon to
gain on reverses. Norris played bang-up ball in the Austin game.
Possessing lightning- like reaction,
Danny would usually be the fifth man
in the opponents' backfield although
he played the position of guard. Boyd
could always be depended upon to play
well, His playing in the Bowie and
Austin games was remarkably out-
E DAN BOYD:
Although only a Sophomore, Bob proved that a hard fighter can
overcome those that have more speed and experience, We predict that
Mitchell will develop into an All-District tackle by next season.
Mike played his last year on the team this past season. He was the outstanding
blocker on the squad for three yearsg his loss will be felt greatly next season.
Carrasco was also placed on the All-City Eleven.
What Octo lacked in size and weight, he
made up in speed and fight. Borunda was a
standeout in the Tucson and Austin games. He
is another one of our graduating backs.
This was Joe's first year on the squadg how-
ever, he developed so rapidly that by the San
Angelo game, he demonstrated that by the
coming season he will readily become All-
Although George was not a regular, he probably played as much as any
other tackle on the squad. Miramontes could always be depended upon to
fulfill his assignments regardless of the size or speed of the opponents.
Johnny played the position of tackle for two years He completed his eligibility
' the past season when he proved hirnselt to be the outstanding player for that position
in the District. The coaches will have a hard assignment in finding someone to take
Developing rapidly as the season went by, Ralph was one of the outstanding ends
on the squad. Being a good pass receiver as well as an excellent defense man, he
could always be depended upon to give the opponents more than his share ot trouble.
His loss will be felt greatly next season.

SAMMY DWYER: lCaptainl
Easily the mainstay of the Tiger tiye, Sammy captained the
team from guard position. A consistent point getter, as well as
being one ot the best guards produced in recent years, Dwyer
was rewarded tor his splendid work by being unanimously chosen
tor All-State honors as guard and captain
An excellent dribhler and passer, Kahn was certainly an
important cog in the Tigers' offense, l-le played one ot the
regular guard positions and was one ot the best detensiye men
on the squad Abieis play in the State Tournament was bril-
Ralph was easily the most improved player on the sciuad During the early
part of the season, he was slow and awkwardg but by hard work and untiring
patience Castillo mastered every phase ot the game so well that he was un-
Qvimously chosen All-State Center at the State Tournament Ralph has com-
pleted his eligibility.
Tony played one ot the regular torwards, l-le was an excellent floor man
and led in scoring in the City Series Vega was chosen by every local
newspaper in their All-City selections. Great things will be expected of him
BILL RIKE: ,
Bill started the season at one ot the regular
guard positions, l-le was shifted to forward, howa
eyer, where his deadly shooting would improve the
Tiger offense. Rike was undoubtedly the most
consistent scorer on the team. Bill Rilce is an-
other one ot our graduating regulars.
K . H.-.
Possessing a tricky one-handed shot, Bob could always be depended upon to
annex points for El Paso High School. Bob starred in the City Tournament,
especially in the Bowie games. He has completed his eligibility.
"Hammer" played one of the alternate forward positions. He specialized in
all kinds of trick shots and passes, being able to manipulate the ball with uncanny
accuracy. Willard's playing during the City Series was of a high standard.
David alternated at both of the guard positions.
He was an excellent defensive man, a good drib-
bler, and could always get his share of the points,
His play in the Regional Meet assured everyone
that he will be an outstanding player next year.
GEORGE MIRAMONTES: l
George was a hard driver from the start
and could be depended upon to be plugging
when the final whistle blew. Although he was
not a regular, he probably scored more points
than some of the first five, George was a
Senior this past season.
Coach Renningtons battling Tigers' thrilling victory was due to splendid team work
and excellent coaching,
Losing only tour out ot twenty-tour games, the EI Paso I-Iigh School Tigers completed
the most successtul season in the last ten years.
Although considered very weak at the start ot the season, the Tigers won the City,
District, and Regional Championships. They were finally nosed out by Cushing in the State
Championship game, 33-29.
This is an excellent example ot what good team-work, splendid coaching, and a "never-
say-die" spirit will do, Therefore, take heed, you I937 "Tigers," and may you show the same
spirit and team-work next season.

"Tigers" were well coached, thanks to Track Coach l-larry Biyins, and showed a splendid spirit.
Inspired by their leader and captain, Reading Black, the El Paso "thinly-clads" were nosed out
only because ot the lack ot reserve material. l-lowever, we certainly look forward to a successful

The Scholarship Club is composed of students making an average of at least and
preferably "A," in all studies. Their deportment grades must not fall below an "A at any time.
To be eligible a student must make the necessary average for a whole term and then at the be-
ginning of the next term automatically becomes a member. Only a high senior may enter at the
close of the first six weeks. U I
The club meets on every other Wednesday and the meetings are varied and entertaining
A banquet is always held at the end of each current school year. Perhaps the greatest privilege
offered to members of the Scholarship Club is exemption from all final examinations. 1
Members are given gold scholarship pins to wear throughout the term and if he remains a
member of the club and graduates with it, the pin becomes his own possession.
Miss Stamps, the sponsor, has done much to promote a feeling of good will and co-opera-
tion in the club and the students themselves, have done much to correct the false idea that it is
a club for "book-worms" only.

Our chapter, the first chapter of the National Honor Society to be founded in El Paso, was
begun in l927 by Mr, Lynn B. Davis. lts purpose is not solely to develop scholarship, although it
gives recognition to that, but to stimulate and cultivate other qualities in students which make for
a finer life-namely, character, service and leadership,
As the name implies, this society is national in scope and its members are entitled to wear
the national pin which glVGS high school students everywhere the Same reeegrritien that the key of
the Phi Beta Kappa gives to college students.
Members are selected by the faculty from a list of seniors and high juniors. This year the
society departed TVOVTT the CtJSTOmary ll'titlatlOr1, and homered the new members with 3 Iuneheort at
the Hilton Hotel -table appointments featuring the club colors, purple and gold.
Election into this society is considered the highest honor which the faculty can bestow
upon students-an honor, however, which the students themselves must earn.

Miss Catherine Flynn has been our sponsor since the foundation of the society.

About three years ago a Photography Club was organized under the leadership ot Mr. J. B.
Jones, the head ot the Science Department. The interest in this club has grown until it is now the
largest club in the school.
Boys and girls have learned to take, develop and print their own pictures. This year all
the pictures for the Spur were taken by the Photography Club.
The growth of this club has made it necessaiy to have a larger work room so new shades
were put in the physics laboratory and the work of the club has been very successful.

The French Club, Le Tigre Francais, has done much to promote interest in the French
customs and habits. During the meetings, the members sing French folk songs and enioy games
well known in France. Our students correspond with French students in France and in the French
provinces in Africa, writing letters in French and receiving them likewise.
Members ot the club seek out information about French lite and customs, giving short
talks about each, Two plays are given each year and then, too, occasionally guest speakers are
invited to be present at the meetings,

The Omicron Omicron Epsilon Club was organized this school year and is establishing
itself more and more each day. The organization is affiliated with the state home economics
association and the American Home Economics Association which gives each member the right
to wear the club pin and the club the right to send representatives to the meeting of the state
association, The club colors are gold and purple, Aims of the organization are mainlyi to
develop interest in home economicsg to develop personality, leadership, self-reliance, initiative,
social poise and professional interestg to develop team-work and friendshipg to provide social
training and to stimulate interest in hobbies and in the vvise use of leisure
The club has been very active and has accomplished a great deal, The initiation cere-
mony, which was held at night and following a social hour, was the first activity the members
participated in. A Thanksgiving box was the club's offering to a needy family. The members
enjoyed the merry Christmas party because they had made scrap books, dressed dolls and var-
ious other things for the orphans. On March twenty-seventh, the club sponsored a "Cotton
Cord" dance in the El Paso High School gym. A tea for the mothers of club members was
given Friday, May eighth, The main project of the second term has been to enlarge the Health
Department, A portion of the proceeds of the dance and of an assembly was given to the

An essential to every pupil's school life is a good library with a competent supervisor and
helpers. Certainly our library, with Mrs. Mamie Lyles and her staff, aids El Paso High students
in their work. Throughout the day and after school hours we may find boys and girls working
away at some assignment, or perhaps reading for pleasure.
Over 9,000 books of all types furnish ample reference and diversion material, A student
in English, after taking library lessons, is not at a loss to find what is needed, but library aids
are always on hand. The staff of I7 girls have among their duties the issuing, receiving and
shelving of books, the care of scholastic and other magazines, and helping in every way. Mrs,
Lyles made the statement that without the student helpers, it would have been impossible to
run the library without a trained paid assistant.
This year the library was moved to new quarters, combining with the Junior and Senior
study hall. The upper classmen have benefited greatly through its use. Plans have already been
formulated for next year, and an even better system has been worked out,

The R. O. T. C. in the El Paso l-ligh School had its most successful year in the history of
the school in the year l935-l936. , V
For the fourth consecutive time our R. O. T. C. was put on the honor roll of the Eighth
Corps area. This honor rating is very hard to attain but through the efforts of splendid com-
mandant of cadets, James P. Moore, we were successful in getting this rating.
The R. O. T. C, Competitive Drill, held annually, was a decisive victory for the First
Battalion of El Paso l-ligh School over the Second Battalion of Austin l-ligh. Our Battalion
won twelve out of fourteen possible first places. A ,
The Battalion commanded by Cadet Major l-loward Newton won the Battalion trophy.
Company B, commanded by Cadet Captain Jimmy Ferguson, won the company drill. Company
C, commanded by Cadet Captain Bob Folk, won the freshman Company drill. Second platoon
Company C, commanded by Cadet 2nd Lt. Dick Fletcher, won the Freshman platoon drill. The
Fifth Battalion, commanded by Cadette Captain Liddie l-lardie, won the Girls' Battalion drill.
Company R, commanded by Cadette Captain Liddie l-lardie, won the Girls' Company
drill. First platoon of Company R, commanded by Cadette 2nd Lt. Louise l-layward, won the
girls' platoon drill.
Cadet Master Sergeant Bob l-loover won the Individual Competitive drill for the second
consecutive year. This is the first time in the history of the R. O. T. C. in El Paso that this was
ever done. Cadet private Frank Brown won the Freshman Individual Competition. Cadette
Sergeant Charlotte Cole won the girls individual competition.
Cadet Major l-loward Newton won first place in the Don Thompson trophy for marks-
manship. Cadet Captain Jeff Parham won second place in the Don Thompson trophy for marks-
Cadet Major Howard Newton was chosen the most outstanding cadet in the corps and
was awarded a gold medal.
Our victory is largely due to the excellent leadership of our Cadet Officers and the de-
termination of our.cadets and the untiring efforts of Second Lt. Thomas K. l-lerman.

The Story of the Spur is not an unusual one. The
hardest and most intense work was done after the so-
called dead line, and what for a time seemed a hopeless
task is now accomplished. There are many friends who
helped make this book a reality and to whom the editor
extends her everlasting gratitude.
The work of the staff, both editorial and business,
was most enthusiastic and faithful. Nights as well as
days of work have been tirelessly spent 'preparing this
annual. To all my staff who worked after hours putting
the Spur before all else, l extend my unlimited thanks,

The members ot the Student Council of El Paso
High School are elected by popular vote by mem-
bers of their class division. The Council is an
organization of honor and government in the
school. lt has furthered democracy by establish-
ing a student court, with the council members
sitting as judges. The council has in its power
the right to pass judgment on the cases coming
before it. With the equalness of the student on
trial and students as judges, it is believed that
greater steps will be accomplished in the under-
standing of the arising cases.
Every school wishes to gain in strength and
prestige and to have better student government.
That progress has been made by our school thru
the Student Council, The Council takes care of
the publicity tor our school, decides questions
arising concerning the student body as a whole
and makes our school what it is with the help ot
the fellow students and the guiding influence ot
the sponsor, Miss Flynn.
