Our 
Buildings 



In September of 1927 El Dorado 
Junior College opened its doors to 
higher education in classrooms on 
the third floor and part of the sec- 
ond floor of the present Junior 
High Building. 




1927 
to 

1946 




Science and library 
facilities were provided 
in the old Senior High 
building, the basement 
of which is the north end 
of the present gym. This 
building was razed in 
1936 to make way for 
the present Senior High 
building. 




The EJC classes moved into the 
McKinley Building, a grade 
school building converted for 
college use, in 1933. This 
building stood about where the 
present auditorium now stands. 
Classes returned to the Junior 
High building when the Old 
Senior High and the McKin- 
ley buildings were being re- 
placed by the new Senior 
High building. 



The new Senior High building 
was completed in the spring of 
1937, and EJC classes moved 
into the first floor in March. 
The library and the science 
classes were located on the 
upper floors. 




EARL WALKER 
Dean, 1927-1946 



H. A. SHUMWAY 
Dean, 1946-1947 



EJC salutes the deans who have 
guided the school through thirty-five 
years of successful educational 
leadership. 



MAX BICKFORD 
Dean, 1947-1955 



TILGHMAN ALEY 
Dean, 1955-1960 




The EJC administrative offices and most classes, except the science 
department, were moved into the formei; Jefferson Grade School building 
in the fall of 1946.

Remembering 



LESTER W. 

NIXON 

Grizzly 

Growl, 

1930 




significant events of the 
first thirty- five years at 
El Dorado Junior College 
has been made possible 
largely through the able 
assistance of 

Lester W. Nixon 

retiring speech and 
English instructor, who 
has been a member of the 
college faculty since 
September of 1929 . His 
devotion to the school, his 
personal recollections, and 
his continued interest in 
those students who have 
attended EJC have greatly 
helped this year's Grizzly 
Growl staff to record the 
activities and achieve- 
ments of our school's- 
history . 



As Mr. Nixon has re- 
called for us many of the 
events of the past, stu- 
dents also have done some 
remembering. Some in re- 
ferring to an appreciation 
of literature that began in 
his American literature 
classes, have frequently 
expressed the desire to listen once again to his reading of some particularly 
favorite selection. Others have mentioned the many artistic displays of his 
excellent collection of art prints . Still others have remembered his skillful 
arrangements of flowers, bottles, candles, and other items which have added 
color and variety to the sometimes monotonous task of securing an education. 

Perhaps the best remembered feature of Mr. Nixon's classroom has been his 
numerous books and magazines which have aroused the intellectual curiosity of his 
students and have challenged them to find a scholarly satisfaction in pursuing an 
education through the printed word . 

We remember our friend and instructor with sincere appreciation. The 
heritage that he leaves us will continue to enrich our lives, for "Gladly did he 
learn and gladly teach." 



LESTER W. NIXON, 1962 




First semester classes convene . 

When school convened in September, 196 1, a total of 405 students reported to 
classes. This is the largest number that EJC has had since 1940, when the en- 
rollment reached the peak of 443. Of the 405 enrollees this year, 318 were fresh- 
men, 80 were sophomores, and seven were high school specials.

"Growl" staff members prepare to remember the past. 



The academic work at EJC 
has, from the opening of the 
school, been supplemented with 
an active program of extra- 
curricular interests . These 
have given students many oppor- 
tunities for social and business- 
like contacts that have aided in 
developing traits and abilities 
needed in the workaday world. 
Some of the clubs of the past 
include the "Purple Pansies" 
(a men's pep club), the YMCA, 
the YWCA, and an international 
relations club. 



The Pi Delta Theta was organized in 1927 for students who were interested in dra- 
matics, and numerous theatrical productions were staged as a part of the cultural fare 
The Delta Psi Omega, a national honor dramatics fraternity, was chartered in 1934, 
just one year after the Phi Rho Pi, a national forensic fraternity. It is hoped that the 
Phi Rho Pi may be reactivated this year with renewed interest in debate and forensics. 

Significant awards were won in 1951 when the men's forensic team took national 
honors in the Junior College forensic festival by winning first and second places in de- 
bate, first place each in impromptu speaking, after-dinner speaking, and in declama- 
tion, and second place in extemporaneous speaking. 

In 1955, the girls' forensic team won national honors in the national Junior College 
speech festival by taking first in debate and first in interpretive reading, and again in 
1958 a member of the girls' team placed first in interpretive reading.

Council since the organization of the school. The elected officers are Sherry 
Baer, President; Jacque Wentling, Vice-President; Bill Searle, Student Promo- 
tion Chairman; Gary Bolin, Student Affairs Chairman; Amy Jo Sobba, Secretary-

Students contemplate teaching 



The Student Kansas State Teachers Association was first organized at EJC 
in April of 1953 as the Paul Hawkins Chapter of the Future Teachers of America. 
The name was changed to the present form in 1958. The purpose of this organi- 
zation is to provide an opportunity for college students contemplating entering 
the teaching profession to become better acquainted with the requirements, 
problems, and compensations of the profession. This organization sponsors 
speakers, films, and other types of informative programs. It also seeks to 
encourage high school students within the county to affiliate with student 
teachers' organizations.

Music at Juco 



For the first time in the history of EJC, students this year have had an oppor- 
tunity to secure credit in a variety of music courses in addition to chorus, which 
has been a part of the program for many years. 

Classes in music appreciation and fundamentals of music provide an introductory 
study. A course in theory offers work in harmony, sight singing, ear training, and 
keyboard harmony. Credit is also given in courses in applied music, including 
voice, piano, and organ. The ensemble offers to a select group of students a special 
chance to learn and enjoy a wide variety of vocal music. 

Students may also receive credit in band. The college band provides a signifi- 
cant contribution to all sports events . Still another music group this year has been 
the Combo Band that has made a study of various types of dance music and has play- 
ed for a number of social affairs at the college during the year. 

The music opportunities now offered at EJC are a welcome addition to the cur- 
riculum.

In order to deepen the spiritual and enrich 
the temporal lives of its members through a 
balanced program of religious, intellectual 
and social activities, the Juco Newman Club 
was established in 1957. The Juco Newman 
Club is affiliated with the National Newman 
Club Foundation and of the Province of the 
Federation in which the club is located. The 
original Newman Club was founded by Cardinal 
Newman. The Juco Newman Club has been 
under the direction of Father Irvin Lampe 
for four years.

The Junior College Youth Group was organ- 
ized in the school year of 1957 and 1958. This 
year the organization has changed its name to 
Juco Christian Youth Fellowship. 

The purpose of this religious organization 
for college men and women is to provide oppor- 
tunity for Christian fellowship, service, and 
personal growth. The group has sponsored 
each year Thanksgiving and Easter assemblies, 
Christmas caroling, baskets of food for needy 
families, and various campus social events.

Gold Diggers 



The EJC Gold Diggers help promote school spirit and support the athletic 
program throughout the year. 

During the first few years at Juco the pep club girls sent personal notes of 
encouragement to the boys and served lunches after games to the teams. These 
"go Id -digging" activities established their name. 

The Gold Diggers this year have continued to support the athletic program 
through the cheering section, posters, and the sponsoring of the football and 
basketball homecomings.

issues, and social responsibilities which they might encounter in the field of 
business. The club took an educational journey to various businesses where the 
members were introduced to specific problems . Several speakers presented v 
various points of view of particular interest to the club members. All these efforts 
significantly supplemented the work of the classroom to create a more efficient 
business personnel for the future.

Throughout the years the primary 
interests of the El Dorado Grizzlies 
have been devoted to football and bas- 
ketball. Tennis, track, and golf, which 
have at times been a part of the sports 
schedule, have not maintained a 
continued interest. 

The Basketball team of 1952-1953, 
coached by Dave Weatherby, won honors 
for itself and EJC by making a surprise 
comeback and winning the National 
Junior College tournament after a some- 
what ordinary season. One of the EJC 
"greats" was Augustine Garcia, basket- 
ball player in 1931-1932, who went on to 
become a coach at the University of 
Mexico at Mexico City. 

Paul Blazavich, in 1958, was select- 
ed for the mythical Juco All -American 
team in football, and Bob Pekich of this 
year's team was nominated to the same 
honor .

Gruffy T. Grizzly 
Our Mascot 



From the very first year of our school's 
history the grizzly bear has served as our mas- 
cot. The pen sketch at the top of the page 
appeared with other similar drawings in the 
first GRIZZLY GROWL of 1928. Through sub- 
sequent years numerous versions of the Grizz- 
ly appeared according to the interpretations 
of various yearbook artists. The desire for 
securing a visible mascot had long been over- 
ruled because of the impracticality of harbor- 
ing a grizzly bear around EJC. But one day in 
the fall of 1948 when Miss Helen Bradford, 
English instructor, was shopping in Wichita 
at the Innes department store, she beheld a 
little brown bear just begging her to take 
him home with her. A glance at the price 
arrested her intentions, however, for thirteen 
dollars at that time was considered an un- 
reasonably high price to pay for a stuffed 
animal. But those big soulful eyes and that 
delightfully perky tongue won out for an 
immediate adoption. When the little bear 
arrived at EJC, he was promptly welcomed 
into the Juco family and was loved, cuddled, 
and cherished by the entire student body. 
The yearbook staff assumed the obligation of 
his cost and forthwith sponsored a contest for 
his name. Miss Betty Jean Doan (now Mrs. 
Carl Henn), class of 1948, received the 
prize, and the new mascot was christened 
Gruffy T. Grizzly. His first official photo- 
graph, which appeared in the 1949 yearbook, 
is reproduced in the upper right corner. 
Since that time he has been the most photo- 
graphed personage around EJC. No matter 
what the season or event, Gruffy is likely to 
be in the center of activities properly attired 
for the occasion. His certificate listing him 
on the Dean's Honor Roll demonstrates the 
very unique place that he has won for him- 
self at EJC.

Forty -five graduating students and innumerable hours of study bring the year of

graduated 1, 662 students who have gone into many different vocations and professions 
as well as into all parts of the world to use the knowledge they acquired here. May

Order of the Purple 




John Berens and Susan Hildreth 



The Order of the Purple was organized in 1937 to recognize the scholastic attain- 
ments of students at EJC. Originally, the selection of members was made upon the 
basis of service, leadership, and character, in addition to scholarship which was a 
2.00 grade average on the 3.00 schedule. Later the selection was changed to scholar- 
ship only, with a 2.25 grade average on the 3.00 basis. In 1957, the requirements 
were increased to a 2.5 grade average. Students who are elected to the Order of the 
Purple must be enrolled at EJC one full year and carry at least twelve hours per 
semester. Grades are computed after the first half of the second semester. Since 
the organization of the Order of the Purple, a total of 210 students have been elected 
to its membership. We salute the 1962 members of the Order of the Purple.
