The Student Council is the student governing body of the school. 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.

"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.
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.
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
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 three pictures above depict the social and
dramatic activities of Pi Delta Theta. 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
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.
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
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.

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.
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
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-

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

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
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.

This group of girls, calling themselves the Gold Diggers,
supply the feminine half of the pep program for Juco. 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 **. >
"Let's go El Dorado
Fight 'em up El Dorado
Let's go El Dorado
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.

Forty-one, fifty-eight, seventy-nine, HIKE ! 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
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.

Here we have flashes of action from the three spring sports.
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
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.

May thy name untarnished be,
Glorious victories crown thy years,
Progress daunted not by fears.
