Pirates of Penzance
THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE is the story of four beautiful daughters who wander from their father's ship while picking flowers. They come upon a pirate who falls in love with one of their daughters. The daughters are frightened by the appearance of three more pirates but are relieved to find that they are friendly. When their father finally finds them, he describes in detail why he is "the very model of a modern Major-General." The story ends happily as the four pirates fall in love with the four daughters and they all live happily ever after.

The Junior ClassTender was the night when the guests arrived at an outdoor patio for the junior-senior prom. In the center of the patio was a fountain with a young maiden pouring water into a round ivory basin. Stars in a sky of blue shone on the hedge-bordered patio.
After the patio dance, couples traveled to the Ada Theater where they saw MARY MARY. Then sleepy prom-goers somehow found the energy to bowl and play bingo at Norada Lanes. Hungry by this time, the guests were served breakfast at the Liberty Conservation Club. Thus ended a lovely and memorable evening.
Romantic music was provided by The L.B. Quintet. Dick Klingler and Jacquie Love provided extra entertainment. Dick sang a selection of popular songs and Jacquie did a tap dance to "From this Moment On."

“Ada High— We Bow to Thee in Defeat or Victory”
The most disappointing fact of the '63 season was the 4-4 record. Although the Bulldogs lacked experience this year and there were several injuries, every player gave 100 percent. Bulldogs on the All-Scioto Squad were Bob Irwin, Dennis Burris, Jay Epley, Rick Tipple, Tom Williams, and Delbert Henry. Ken Amburgey and Steve Simon received honorable mention. Ass't coaches were Tom Coe, Bill Goodwin, and Dave Hansbarger.
Coach Gilchrist seems unconcerned, but Coach Cline seems to FEEL the tackle that had just been made.

By defeating Ridgemont the Bulldogs became Hardin County Champions for the second straight year. The Bulldogs bowed out of 1964 tournament contention by losing their game with Arlington in the sectional.CO-CAP TAIN

AS WE LEAVE YOU, ADA HIGH,
WE'LL NOT FORGET YOUR MANY BEAUTIES SILVER DOMED, YOU STAND UNDER THE OHIO SKY,
A PROUD AND MIGHTY CASTLE OF RED BRICK. EVERYWHERE ARE YOUR GIFTS OF BEAUTY:
ROLLING LAWNS, WINDING WALKS,
SHADY PATIOS, BUDDING BLOSSOMS,
TALL TREES, AND FLUTTERING FLAG.
WITHIN WALLS, DREAMS OF KNOWLEDGE ARE FOUND WHERE TEACHERS LECTURE, GIVE TESTS
AND ADVISE, SEEKING TO INFORM THE INQUISITIVE MIND. THE STUDENTS SELDOM PAUSE DURING THE BUSY YEAR, FOR THEY ARE
ATTENDING INITIATIONS, COLLECTING NOTES,
GRADE CARDS, HONORS, SHEDDING SENTIMENTAL TEARS AND OLD BOOKS ON THE LAST DAY.
AND IN SIX SHORT YEARS WE ARE GONE.
BUT THE CHARM OF ADA HIGH LIVES ON AND ON.
