For many years the bear has been the mascot of our school.
The bear, we believe, is a fitting symbol for our athletic teams and
high school, since the bear is well known to be a determined and
intelligent fighter. For this reason we have chosen the bear to
be the theme of this, tl1c thirteenth edition of the Elizabethan.
In this yearbook we have tried to present to you a true pic-
ture of actual school life as we see it. This includes classes, ae-
tivities, athletics, and all those little incidentals that together make
up school life. We find school life completely lacking the formality
that appears in other places. Because of this we have tried to
make this yearbook as informal as possible.
The 1947 Elizabethan staff here wishes to express its great
appreciation to all students, members of the faculty, and friends
of the school for the inestimable assistance which they have given
the seniors in the preparation of this, their yearbook.

We, the class of 1947, desire to express our deepest gratitude to the Board
of Education of Elizabethtown. This fine group of public-minded men have
assumed the difficult duties of safeguarding the welfare and providing for the
education of Elizabethtown's younger citizens.
Very few of us have ever realized the responsibilities that rest upon them.
Among their many tasks are the making of a budget that will provide for the
sehool's many financial needs, the choosing of teachers that will best fill the
needs of the school, the maintenance and repair of the school buildings, and the
providing of courses that will make the best citizens of the younger generation.
'It is for these reasons that we students are here showing our appreciation
for their efforts and personal interest in the schools of Elizabethtown.
fha, plannwl . . .
Mr. T. H. Ebersole
To-the Class of 1947:
Although I have known you but one year,
it has been a pleasure to work with you in
this, your final chapter of your high school
days. I extend to you my heartiest congratu-
lations upon your graduation and sincerely
wish you every success in the future.
RANDALL F. CLEMENS
High School Principal
To the mass of 1947:
I want to commend you for having com-
pleted your high school course. Your yearbook
is a record of your extracurricular achieve-
ments. Your work in the classroom has also
made its impression upon you as well as upon
the school. My wish for you is that you will
continue to grow and achieve as you meet
the problems and responsibilities of life. May
you always have a deep affection in your
hearts for your high school as, I'm sure, it
will have for you.

To thee, Ahna Mater, we bid adieu
As We honor thee with highest praise,
Fondest nieinories we shall carry forth
Of our delightful high sehool days.
As we enihark on the sea of life
Sueeess is the thought we bear in inind
Our aims are high, a goal to reaeh
For freedoni and honor if fate he kind.
Our teachers we leave, and friends depai
The last lesson now is learned,
But a pause of ineniories we reelaiin
After the Hnal page is turned.
A rejoicing class now are we
, That we've reached our destination,
Twelve long years we have awaited
This Iinal day, our graduation.

piness, and fame everlasting.

This year Elizabethtown High School set
a new precedent for Lancaster County in that
the football team was conditioned at Camp
Thompson in the Pocono Mountains. This
undertaking was financed by benefit sports ac-
tivities and generous donations of the towns-
people. The boys, under the direction of
Coaches Windish and Eppler, profited greatly
by the training acquired during the ten days
spent at camp. When pre-season training at
home began, the boys were ready to meet
their first opponent.
The most successful football season in
E-town high school history got off to a Hying
start by winning over 1Vest York 15-7 on
September 6. The game was never in doubt
as our boys had complete mastery of the field.
The following week Palmyra journeyed to
E-town and was soundly trounced 39-7, with
each Bear back scoring at least once.
Excitement ran high on September 21, as
the Blue and White met Columbia on our
opponentls field. Coming from behind a
6-point deficit, the Bears racked up 4 touch-
downs to beat Columbia 24-6 for tl1e first
time since 1939.
Manheim Township, E-town's fourth con-
secutive Conference of Roses opponent, was
next on the schedule, and in one of the most
thrilling battles witnessed on the new field,
held our Bears to a one-point win, 14-13.
Sterling line plays and the hard running of
the E-town backs were the deciding factors.
The Blue and iVhite stocked up their fifth
straight win the following Friday, downing
what later proved to be a good Duncannon
The next week, playing in the 1'ain, our
boys proved they could handle the HT," come
what may, by winning over Highspire, 45-0.
This was the sixth straight win.
October 19 proved to be our unlucky day.
In the deciding battle for the championship
of the Conference of Roses, Ephrata blanked
our Bears 18-0. This proved to be our only
league loss of the year.
The following Friday the Bears came out
victorious over Biglerville to the tune of 74-0.
This team had beaten us three successive
On November 2, we traveled to Middle-
town and came home down, but not out, the
score being 64-13. The score was 14-13 at
the end of the second quarter, but when the
huge Middletown team took the lead, they
started to roll.
In the final game of the season we took
Patton Trade by the largest score in the long
series between the two schools. Taking com-
plete mastery of the game, the Bears led 33-0
at half-time and ended 53-0.
During the season an impressive total of
316 points were scored against our opponents'
115, to lead this part of the state. This total
was distributed among five men: Yurkovic,
112, Kniley, 63, Goodling fseven gamesl, 61,
Reider, 515 Shirk, 24. Four of these were in
the first ten of the county's high scorers.
Our line was particularly outstanding,
paced by Seniors Reider, Heisey, Gassert, Ney,
Charleston, and Kauffman.
The backfield composed of Seniors Good-
ling, Yurkovic, Kniley, Bishop, and Ebersole
equalized the sterling play of the line to form
an exceptionally well-balanced team.
Teamwork was superb and in using the
HT7' formation for the first time in our school
history, much credit must be given to Coaches
John Windish and Alton Eppler, who did such
a magnificent job both at Camp Thompson
and at home.
All the games were played at night before
capacity crowds. The Bears played before
approximately 20,000 people during the sea-
son, this testifying to the staunch support
given the team.
Dick Dixon, competent cook for the boys
at Camp Thompson, promised the team that
when they had won six games, he would en-
tertain them at a banquet. And so the week
before the final fray witl1 Patton, tl1e players,
together with friends and school officials, were
Diek's guests at Aunt Sally's Kitchen.
After the Patton-E-town game, the mem-
bers of both squads attended the annual foot-
ball banquet sponsored by Dr. T. M. Thomp-
son. This year the banquet was held in the
high school gymnasium for over two hundred
persons attending the affair. This annual ban-
quet is always eagerly anticipated by both
the Patton and E-town teams.

For thc first time in the history of Elizabethtown basketball the school
was represented in the P.I.A.A. state playoffs. By playing Muhlenburg Town-
ship at Lebanon, our '47 team established a precedent. Although we lost 46-33,
the score was no indication of the game, for in the first six minutes of the fourth
quarter we had worn down a 13-point defeat Q33-205 to a mere 36w32, mainly
by hard fighting and .lunie Goodling's 17 points.
XVe led up to this game by winning 12 and losing 6. Of these, 9 wins and
3 losses were league games. The Blue and XVhite beat eyery team in Lancaster
County, Section I, at least once and received losses from East Donegal, East
Hempiield, and Marietta. This record gave us second place in the Section and
entitled us to a berth in the Class A playoffs.
Mention must be made of the East Hempfield game at home. This en-
counter was one of the sports thrillers of the year. YVith only one second to go,
Gil Shirk sank a long shot to win the game 32-31, and hand East Hempfield
their only league loss of the year.
Outstanding performers beside those already mentioned were Center Jim
Reider, Forwards Joe Kauffman, Pete Hoffman, and Amos Good, and Guards
.lack Ney, Ken Kniley, and John Ebersole. All of the boys played to the utmost
of their ability and each contributed highly to a successful season.
Due to thc large attendance at our games, all but two of them were played
in the spacious Elizabethtown College gymnasium. This additional seating
space provided room for the teamls loyal followers.
