ROBERT DAFT Farmer The Ada Board of Education, as the elected representatives of the taxpayers of the community, is responsible to the people for the proper administration of the Ada schools. Some of the duties of the Board are: to provide funds necessary to finance the school program, to pass on the recommendations of the superintendent in all matters of policy and other matters pertaining to the welfare of the schools, and to appraise the effectiveness with which the schools are achieving the educational purposes. MRS. HOWARD McBRIDE Clerk of the Board Secretary to Supt. LucasYour education in the Ada schools is cumulative—class period upon class period, day upon day. week upon week, month upon month, year upon year—and is finally climaxed by Commencement. Every effort has been made by your parents, teachers, and adults with whom you have associated to make these experiences as educational as possible. These efforts have been made with one purpose in mind! namely, to assist you in making this “commencement'’ as constructive and positive as possible. You are entering a complex and constantly changing society. The things of yesteryear are gone forever and will not return. Are you prepared to meet and solve the problems of the future? I, for one, have every confidence in the youth of today. You will successfully solve the problems remaining in the Twentieth century and meet the problems of the Twenty-first century with enthusiasm and determination. To solve these problems will require hard work, creative thinking, anti a new and fresh approach to the future. You have the training, knowledge, and energy to solve these problems. Your future and the future of our nation and world is dependent upon you.PRINCIPAL PAUL H. CRAMER, JR.

The evening was highlighted by competition between moms and daughters, and between the dads and members of the faculty. Those attending the Carnival could not help but stop at the Country Store for a little browsing and buying, take a chance at the cake-walk, watch the pie-throwing, and try their luck at the fish pond. For the teen-agers, the final event was a record hop where any remaining energy could be “danced off.”MICHELE AMES Elementary Art High School Art It is no wonder that Art is a popular course. “MAX” ANSLEY Instrumental Music Bands Mr. Ansley hopes that ASCAP does not see this picture.

It provides vocational opportunities for youth who otherwise may be denied any possibility of securing vocational training of a trade and industrial nature. In the Diversified Cooperative Training program the student receives instruction in the manipulative phase of the occupation in the employing establishment and related instruction in the school. The make-up of the class is such that many occupations may be represented in one class and therefore instruction must be geared to meet individual specifications. Since several different occupations are represented in one class, an individual training plan must be prepared for each student. This plan must include an outline of experiences to be learned on-the-job and related information which can be provided in the school. The general related class in school covers topics and problems which are common to all work situations, such as employer-employee relationships, social security, labor relations, etc. The basic principle of the trade and industrial education is learning by doing. The needs of the individual worker are the foundations upon which all instructional activity is based. DCT members are: Jere Anspach, Ray Binkley, Ernie Curtis, Ken Curtis, Terry Davis, Roger Griffin, Donna Hall, Jane Jones, Gary Nelson, Mike Prichard, Charlie Rayl, John Richards, Tom Ring, Lon Robinson, Bob Stull, Jim Treen, Duane Umphress.Jane Jones, receptionist for Dr. Mark B.

NEW COACH . . . YOUNG TEAM ... This year’s Bulldog squad closed the 1966 football season with a 3-6 record. The team was young and a new coach, Tom Greer, was giving the signals. The Ada squad lost some heartbreakers with close scores, but they always looked forward to the next game. Ada lost the two opening games with Allen East and Belle Center, 0-8 and 6-8, and they gathered their strength and trounced Spencerville 18-7. In the next game Delphos Jefferson overpowered the Bulldogs and scored 28 points to the Bulldogs’ 13, but the next weekend our squad beat Columbus Grove 29-12 for a Homecoming victory. Though Ada lost to the Bluffton Pirates, 6-26, they had their best showing of the season. They were one of the few teams to score against the undefeated Pirates. Ada lost to Elida 16-23 on Parent’s Night and Ottawa-Glandorf defeated the Bulldogs 0-12, but the team took revenge by overthrowing Perry in our last game 18-8. 61SENIOR R. Conley SENIOR B.

Judy, Sharon, and Mary Ellen are kept on their toes by figuring out and practicing routines for the music which the band plays. Some of their favorite performances are the black light routine and twirling fire batons.

Dunbar, Head Coach Curlis, Mgr. Hattery SHOOTING AND REBOUNDING ARE STRONG POINTS New records in scoring and rebounding were established this year by the Ada ball club. The Bulldogs averaged 53 rebounds per game and shot 40.2 7 from the floor. The team’s glory of winning their first three games was stifled by a five game losing streak. Winning ten and losing nine, the Bulldogs’ spirit was low only once during the season. “Their spirit was the highest for the Perry and Carey games. Our boys wanted to be the first Ada team to beat Perry on the hardwood, and we wanted to stop Carey’s winning streak. You might say we owed them both something for our losses the previous vear,” says Head Coach Arvin Curlis. “I think next year’s squad will surprise a lot of people. Though they lack game experience because no lettermen will be returning, they have the ability to win. However, they must realize that it takes more than ability to win. I think their mental attitude holds the key to any success they might enjoy.”ISEXIOR John Richards SENIOR SENIOR Charles Rayl SENIOR John Rodgers SENIOR Robert Newland SENIOR Lee Sape1966-67 SCHEDULE Ada 55 52 Elida Ada 60 47 BlufTton Ada 76 32 Indian Lake Ada 64 71 Upper Scioto Ada 56 86 Kenton Ada 59 62 Allen East Ada 61 68 Waynesfield Ada 51 57 Lincolnview Ada 84 66 Cory-Rawson Ada 82 73 Perry Ada 74 68 Hardin Northern Ada 109 73 Gomer Ada 81 62 Paulding Ada 98 69 Delphos Jeff Ada 57 58 Carey Ada 70 79 Spencerville Ada 50 53 Hardin Northern Ada 81 59 Allen East Ada 59 61 Pandora Gilboa JUNIOR VARSITY TEAM Standing: Shilling, DaPore, Pifer, Keller, Hackworth, Sobers, Wilkerson, Goodwin, Butterfield.

They ended the season with a terrific 11-2 record. The Bulldogs lost their opener but did not taste defeat again until they met Southeastern in regional competition where they were within just two games of state honors. The title of NWC CHAMPS was theirs when they defeated Lincolnview. The boys played as a team and not as individuals. The pitching of Sage was a big asset, as well as the strong hitting of Lucas, Simon, and Sage. All three were hitting .405 at the end of the season. Luvas also took honors by batting in sixteen runs. Derek Dic kinson from O.X.U. was a great asset to Coach Curlis as he helped with the coaching and in boosting the spirit of the team.

They were also seen in the pregame shows playing the “Star-Spangled Banner” and for Homecoming and Parents’ Night activities. During the half-time shows they were sometimes in concert formation featuring many concert favorites; however, most of the time they were seen marching and performing snappy routines to the music of “Sound of Music,” “Trumpeter’s Prayer,” “Wooden Soldiers,” and “Downtown.” One of the highlights of the season was the appearance of the band at the Hardin County Fair. There Ada’s band performed at both the evening band show and the afternoon races.

On Thursday night she was honored at a bonfire and then reigned over the Ada-Columbus Grove game on Friday after being crowned by two of the captains—Bruce Hays and Dan Archer. Her crown bearer was Carolyn Dearth and her football bearer was Dennis Dearth. The squad also presented Queen Jeanette and the crowd with a 29-12 victory over Columbus Grove. On the following night she was again honored at the Homecoming Dance. Asked her feelings after being chosen Jeanette said, “When my name was announced my feelings were first of shock and then of pure delight. I was never so happy in all my life. The thought of walking across the field in front of everybody awed me at first, but I wouldn’t have given it up for anything in the world. It was the most glorious night of my life and I shall never forget it.” oass SOPHOMORE Jo Ann Love FRESHMAN Melinda Sousley JUNIOR Carol Bischoff 1966 QUEEN Jeanette Willeke SENIOR Chris Lehman■’66 HOMECOMING HIGHLIGHTS FOOTBALL SEASON We celebrated our Homecoming Game victory at our annual Homecoming Dance.
