It is composed of three representatives from each class, the presidents of both the freshman and sophomore classes and representatives from all the clubs in the college. The council's function is to coordinate and promote all student activities. Under its leadership numerous dances and parties were held. The highlight of the social season was the dance at which Leonard Smith and his orchestra played. Assemblies were an important item handled by the council. This year funds were available to have interesting outside speakers from time to time. These paid speakers were very interesting and well informed and it was evident that the plan of paying occasional assembly performers was a good one. At the first of the year the council was presided over by Dan Stewart, president of the Sophomore class, until a president could be elected. Soon after the start of school Margaret Wiley, Homer Lear, Leon McCreight and Bill Dustin were nom- inated for president of the student council. The ensuing political campaign was most vigorous and enthusiastic. After a great deal of playing of bands and general hullabaloo Bill Dustin was elected president. Other officers elected were Jack Morris, vice-president, and Evelyn Davidson, secretary-treasurer. The representa- tives from the Freshman Class were Evelyn Davidson, Phyllis Robison and Winifred Grist and from the Sophomore Class Calvin Jacoby, Wendell Tarman and Bert Dace. Representatives from the college clubs were Joe King, Evelyn Crooks, Margaret Wiley, Dale Daniel, Leon Reneau, Jim Hayes, Bob Stafford, Homer Lear, Oliver Hughes and Richard Ramsey. orensics Actives Bob Stafford Oliver Hughes Pledges Ronald Albright Evelyn Davidson Margaret Wynn Mirriam Smith Richard Ramsey Bert Dace Virginia Crawford Jane Pollard Orville Welch Sponsor Ward Henderson "My friends !" And once more the public speakers have turned on the charm, in an attempt to convince the audience that their side is the only fair side in the present argument. The pictures above show the two different methods used in presenting convincing arguments. The picture on the left shows how it used to be done, clenched fist, ponderous books, and thunderous voice all used to scare the audience into submission. But on the right is seen the modern method of bringing the listener into agree- ment with the speaker. This method is much more informal, friendly, and spontaneous than the older form. These speakers representing EJC took part in tournaments and discus- sion groups numerous times throughout the year. While their record was not outstanding they ranked consistently above average and at numerous times defeated teams of championship caliber. At least two different tournaments would have been won by this group if the "breaks" would have been just a trifle different. EJC this year was host to the State Junior College Forensic Tourna- ment. Every junior college in the state was represented at this three-day meet, which through the cooperation of the entire school was a tremendous success. The maze of details for this affair were worked out by Ward Henderson, forensics coach. s c I E N C E C L U B The El Dorado Junior College Science Club functions for the purpose of developing" scientific interests of the Junior College students. Many of these interests were brought to view the past year by one of the most active groups in local Science Club history. Some of the projects completed in this year's organization have been the develop- ment and enlargement of many fine photographs and the growing of a soilless garden with chemicals. The club meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month during activity period. Meetings are devoted to discussions and demonstrations on scientific subjects. Many motion pictures were shown to the club which were educa- tional as well as interesting. Meetings are also held on the first Monday night of every month at the home of Mr. S. H. Coffman, sponsor. At these meetings the individual members delve into that field which they are most interested. This year's club was under the leadership of Clancy Ferguson as president, Jack Schuster as vice-president, and Mac McCormick as secretary-treasurer. y.w. ~y.M. While the Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. are organized in E. J. C. as separate clubs instead of as the Student Christian Movement their purposes are very similar, and in many activities they work co- operatively. The promotion of Christian fellowsh'p motivates the Y's work. Under the leadership of Rosemary Gfeller the Y. W. C. A. has attained a membership larger than that of any other college club. Such Y. W. activities as covered dish suppers, informal teas (see picture above,) and parties have helped to make the social life of the school varied. During the Easter season worship services were held for a short time before classes each morning. At the holiday season the Y. W. adpoted a family. Finan- cially the members proved themselves to be both workers and wizards, as witness the selling technique displayed in the snaps above. Other officers and members of the cabinet were Harriet Bachelder, Ida Mae Foster, Betty Jean Daniel, Maxine Roberts, Wilda Ruth, Wilma Locke. Miss Wrestler and Miss Milford were sponsors of the organization. At the beginning of the year the Y. M. C. A. took the responsibility of sponsoring a game room for the student body. This game room, devoted chiefly to ping-pong, was a gathering place for students at activity period and after school. Ed Brumback was president of the Y. M. this year and assisting him were the following officers and chairman Jim Hayes, Dale Watts, Jack Morris, Gerald Townsend, Forest Cornwell, and Joe King. Mr. Shumway was the sponsor.

The picture at the top of the page shows some new members drinking the initiation toast. The second picture is of a scene from the fall play, "Bury the Dead." The third pictures a group watching fellow members as they go through the initiation rites of impromptu acting. After the whole day of initiation which included wearing ludicruous costumes, drinking toasts and impromptu acting: new members were permitted to join the old in all the fun of an informal party. Dramatics Above are pictures of Jim Hayes and Irene Strotkamp taken on the day of the initiation of new members into Pi Delta Theta, junior college dramatics club. The other picture is of some representative action of the fall play, "Bury the Dead." There was a great amount of interest taken by students in dramatic activities and organizations this year. The membership of Pi Delta Theta was increased to forty-three members, thirty-seven of whom remain dur- ing the present semester. Besides its social activities and smaller productions. Pi Delta Theta produced two major college plays. In the fall it successfully sponsored "Bury the Dead," an impression- istic anti-war play. The spring play, "Laburnum Grove," a comedy, was produced May 14. In accordance with the precedence of the last few years, a reception was held on the stage following the performance. In addition to the dramatic activities, Pi Delta Theta again sponsored the spring banquet on May 10, and thus, looks back with satis- faction on this year of increased interest and activity. Six new members were chosen this fall to Delta Psi Omega, making a total of sixty members in the local chapter which was started in 1935. The six who were initiated into this honorary organization are Bob Huttenhoff, Bert Dace, Christine Hughes, Evelyn Crooks, and Clancy Ferguson. More new members will be selected this spring. PUBL GRIZZLY GROWLS STAFF Editors Russell Smith Leon McCreight Assistant Editor Irene Strotkamp Typists Jeanne Thompson Shirley Stone Reporters Ed Brumback Virginia Crawford Paul Geymann Marguerite Logan Sponsor Mr. Crooks The two official publications of the El Dorado Junior College are the Grizzly Growls and the Grizzly Growl. The Growls is the weekly news- paper and the Growl is the annual. "All the news that's fit to print — and more too," is the motto of the Grizzly Growls. The paper was put out each week as one section of the Butler County News. Leon McCreight was ap- pointed editor-in-chief for the first semester and Russell Smith was elected for the second. CATIONS In addition to the Grizzly Growls the journalism club published a mimeographed leaflet, "The Jinx", a humor- ous publication much enjoyed by the students. The Growls reported news events of all school activ- ities and various features and editorials. One column especially enjoyed by readers was the "Scoop" column written by Virginia Crawford. The journalism club sponsors the paper and passes on its policies. The officers of the club were Virginia Crawford, president; Bob Stafford, vice-president and student council representative ; Evelyn Davidson, secre- tary-treasurer, and Winifred Grist, program chairman. The faculty advisor of the club was Mr. G. Haldane Crooks. The annual, the Grizzly Growl, was published at the close of the school year. Bob Stafford, editor-in-chief, and Jim Hayes, business manager, were elected to their places by the student council. The photography editors were Kenneth Grady and Roberta Barker. Oliver Hughes, editor of last year's annual, served on the staff and parti- GRIZZLY GROWL ANNUAL STAFF Editor Assistant Editor - - Engraving Editor Photograph Editors - Business Manager - Ass't Business Manage Sponsor - - - - Bob Stafford - Bob Sharp Oliver Hushes - Kenneth Grady Roberta Barker - Jim Hayes - Audrey Mack Miss Milford cularly handled printing and engraving contacts. Assist- ants to the editor and business manager were Bob Sharp and Audrey Mack ; Miss Milford was sponsor. The staff attempted to follow the modern trend of annuals in replacing the formal posed group pictures with action photos and informal shots, when at all possible. This change, while making for a more interesting book, presents many difficulties in getting good action photo- graphs. In some layouts the quality of the photographic work is not what the staff would have liked to have, but with the resources and facilities available is the best that it was possible to get. Pep and school spirit were consistently aroused and maintained throughout the year by the attractively be- decked band pictured above. The band, in their purple and gold uniforms, making a striking appearance whether in marching or concert formation. At sporting events throughout the year this organization added much to the thrill of the game by playing both martial and swing music. At numerous assemblies during the year the students were kept awake by the beat of the drum and the blare of the horn, as well as by the excellent baton twirl- ing of Delphine Wyckoff and Mary Ruth Brandon. The band under the very able direction of Mr. Ralph Wallingford performed often throughout the year for the benefit of the Band Regalement Fund. The business of the band was transacted by President Leon Reneau, Vice president Bill Dustin and secretary-treasurer Ida Mae Foster. INSTRUMENTAL » » MUSIC The Calvacade of American Song, January 30, will be remembered by the entire community as well as by the junior college as an outstanding musical program. The history of American music was pre- sented in the form of songs, new and old. The girls' trio, the girls' octet, the boys' octet, and the entire mixed chorus partici- pated in this song fest. The mixed chorus, dressed as negroes, sang spirituals and other songs of the Old South. The boys' octet, gathered around a campf ire, typified the West with cowboy songs. Modern music was represented in songs sung by the girls' trio. In this program the music department was assisted by the choral groups from the grade schools and the high school. Another successful accomplishment of the college music department was the vesper service held in the college audi- torium the Sunday before Christmas. Be- fore a beautiful mosaic stained-glass win- dow as a background the choir sang Christ- mas carols and spirituals. Jeanne Thompson, Erma Viele, and Roberta Holt made up the girls' trio, which made many public and radio appearances. The girls' octet appeared before civic or- ganizations, assemblies, and in church services. The boys' octet took part in many programs both local and in rural school districts throughout the county. The girls' octet was made up of Mir- riam Smith, Jeanne Thompson, Winifred Grist, Erma Viele, Maxine Miller, Phyllis Robison, Margaret Wiley, and Roberta Holt. The members of the boys' octet were Jack Schuster, Harding Lawrence, Harry Barr, Clair Daniels, Bill Dustin, Max Hill, and Delmont Jackson. These special groups and a mixed chorus of about forty- five members were under the supervision of Miss Merle Fischer.

In the bleachers at the stadium, at pep rallies, in assemblies, everywhere there is any evidence of pep they can be found cheering. Thirty-five girls, a larger number than formerly, were initi- ated into the order of the Gold Diggers this year. And this group with the members of last year planned and executed activ- ities of a pep-inspiring nature. Helping to whitewash the college letters on the East Hill, arranging assembly programs calcu- lated to set the enthusiasm of Juco rooters seething, organizing pep rallies "at one o'clock sharp" for the dual purpose of cheering teams to victory and of shortening fourth hour class — these are a few of the Gold Diggers' activities. At both basketball and football games the girls of this club and members of the Y. W. C. A. had a joint enterprise of selling candy, hot dogs, popcorn (when it would pop), coffee, and count- less yards of gum. During the state debate tournament held here in February the Gold Diggers acted as information clerks and guides. Perhaps the most notworthy single project undertaken was the sponsoring, with the aid of the Purple Pansies, of the annual Sports Banquet given on March 28, in honor of the Junior College "letter men". "1 **. > - jfe. PURPLE PANSIES "Let's go El Dorado Fight 'em up El Dorado Let's go El Dorado Wow!" came from the bleachers as the voices of the men's pep club were raised in Juco yells at all games. The Purple Pansies met twice each month, and at each meet- ing new ideas for the furthering of school spirit were discussed. •Together with the Gold Diggers, the Purple Pansies made an effective group both aud'ble and colorful at all football and basketball games. Around them E. J. C. pep revolved. A very successful assembly program was presented to Jr. College students by the Purple Pansies and the Gold Diggers. The stunt was a mock wedding of the Grizzly football team to Lady Victory, with Bert Dace as the officiating parson. During the second semester the club sponsored the election of the most popular girl and boy in Juco. At a general assembly candidates were nominated, and a week later the student body selected their choices. The two elected presided over the sports banquet as King and Queen of sports. Louise Lee and Jim Hayes were selected with Miriam Smith and Jack Morris as alternates. Ralph Jackson served as president of the Purple Pansies, and Mr. Bayne as sponsor. Warren Huff and Jack Schuster were vice-president and secretary-treasurer respectively. Ed. Brum- back acted as reporter and Dale Daniel was representative of the club in the student council.

And away went the Grizzly football eleven toward one of the most successful football seasons El Dorado has ever had. The Grizzlies were under the supervision of a new coach, Melvin Binford, this year. Coach Binford came to El Dorado from Oklahoma University. In his training of the junior college squad this year he proved to be most able and efficient. Under his instructions the Grizzlies succeeded in piling up 110 points to their opponents 79. After being defeated by Pratt with a score of 26 to 14 in their first game the Grizzlies proved in their second game to be more than an ordinary football team. In this game with the Emporia College Reserves the jucomen swept the reserves off their feet, winning the game 43 to 0. The next week at Iola the Grizzlies proved they could take care of their own fellow conference teams. The Iola squad failed to score. El Dorado made seven points. Chanute proved to be a little too strong for the Juco eleven at Chanute and succeeded in scoring twenty points while the Grizzlies failed to score. On October 27 the most thrilling game of the year was fought out on the local gridiron. Fort Scott, El Dorado's ancient rival, played hard. The Grizzlies fought courageous- ly but at the end of the game the decision was one point in Fort Scott's favor— 8 to 7. Again the Grizzlies began a winning spree. On Novem- ber 2 the Parsons squad was defeated 12 to 6. The next week Dodge City was held scoreless while El Dorado piled up 21 points. It was with bright hopes that the Grizzlies went to Hutchinson for the final game of the year. El Dorado led with one touchdown for nearly the first half. Then Hutchinson began pushing over for three touchdowns. The final score was 19 to 6. BASKETBALL » » » At the end of the basketball season the Grizzly basketball team wasn't the champion, but it had beaten one of the co-champions. And throughout the season it had threatened to be a contender for the championship of the Western Conference. El Dorado won one-half of the games played. In spite of losing five games the Grizzly squad finished close behind the leading teams of this conference. It is interesting to note that in conference games the total points piled up by El Dorado equalled the total points of their opponents. At the close of tha season the Grizzlies had 324 points chalked up in their favor. The opposing teams had made the same number of points. Paul Geymann, center, was the champion point scorer for the Grizzlies. In the ten conference games he made thirty-four field goals and twenty-six ree throws. This gave him a total of ninety-four points, or an average of nine and four-tenths points per game. Next in line were Keith Miller and Homer Lear with seventy-two and sixty-eight points, respectively, and seven and two-tenths and six and eight-tenths points per game. Joe King, J. W. Stephenson, Homer Lear, Keith Miller and Paul Geymann each played in every conference game. In addition to these, Raymond Yelley, R. V. Brown. Harold Smith, and Frank Gonzales played in a majority of the games. Lear, Miller and Gonzales are sophomores this year and will not be back to play next year. In addition to the conference games the Grizzlies played several non-conference teams. The first game of the year was with Sapula. El Dorado won the game easily with a lop-sided score of 34 to 15. Two days aftsr the Sapulpa game the Grizzlies were badly defeated by Friends University of Wichita with a score of 16 to 23. St. Johns defeated the junior college team 30 to 28, and the jun'or college team outpointed the Haskell Indians 37 to 23.

It is impossible to give a complete pictorial story of these activ- ities because they do not swing into full action until too late to be included in this book. This year's track team showed its power by defeating several four-year colleges and by placing high in both the Fredonia and the Baker Relays. Chances look very favorable for winning the State Junior College Meet on May 18. The tennis team also played the role of "giant killer" by defeating teams from several much larger schools. A high standing in the State Tournament is virtually assured these boys. This year as in past years our golfers have been a team to fear in each match played. Paced by Ed Cole this team is definitely one of the best, if not the top, Junior College teams in the state. These teams have been unique in that they have worked as a TEAM, and not as individuals seeking publicity. In doing this they have found a secret to victory not discovered in previous years. The three gentlemen in mufti and rather obviously posing for the camera, are Calvin Jacoby, Fred Robison, and Bob Hubbard, officers of the Varsity Club which is the lettermen's organization. QUARTERBACKS The Downtown Quarterbacks Club was organized at the first of this school year to foster athletics and other school activities, primarily in the Junior College but also in the High School. This it does by helping to provide employment for worthy students and in various other ways. The club has held regular Monday luncheon meetings and has a membership of almost three hundred. Most successful of its ''promotions" this year was a stage show, the Fumble Follies of 1940, given in February to raise money to apply toward needed improvements on the track at the Athletic Field. This will make it possible to hold the state junior college track meet here next year. Officers are President, George F. Bacon ; Secy.-treas., Kenneth Downey; Directors: Joe D. Turner, chairman, H.
