M.D. PRESIDENT Mr. Ron Parshall Mr. Larry Archer SEATED Dr. Thomas Martin Mrs. DaPore VICE-PRESIDENTs u p E R I N T E N D E N T O F S c H O O L S Mr. Lucas recently reflected on the first eight years of his administration. Since 1960 the enrollment at the Ada schools has increased 25°]o from 887 students in 1960 to 1206 students today. Mr. Lucas is also quite proud of the educational expansion at Ada. He noted that the Industrial Arts program has been expanded and a Diversified Cooperative Training Program added. The library holdings have been brought up to state standards and the music programs have been strengthened. A summer curriculum has been introduced offering Driver’s Education, Speech Therapy, Remedial Reading, and Typing. He noted further that Ada participates in several federal programs - Head Start, Neighborhood Youth Corps, and Titles I, II, III, and V. Mr. Lucas commented that the past eight years have been successful and that he is eagerly looking ahead to the future. MRS. MAXINE McBRIDE Superintendent’s Secretary Clerk of Board of Education 5PRINCIPAL PAUL H. CRAMER JR. As the Senior Class of 1968 approaches graduation, I sincerely hope they will take the time to reflect upon their past years in school. Many forces have focused upon you to give each the opportunity for learning and growing - the policies set forth by the Ada Board of Education, the environment for learning established by the administration, and the challenges put before you by the classroom teacher. It is my desire that every student in our school develops a wise use of judgment, a flexibility of spirit, and an achievement of goal. I would want that each student feels the challenge to be a leader in tomorrow's world. Education is power - a dynamic personal force which is utilized by the people of each generation to teach what is important in their way of life to the next. In an ever-widening spiral each generation discovers exciting new resources of insight, knowledge, skills, power, and hope. Then each student is given the chance to receive the greatest challenge and to progress as high as his ability and education warrants. The future of every boy and girl in Ada High School depends upon his education. Seniors of 1968, I challenge you to face the tasks that are before you and to the best of your ability utilize the education you have received in the Ada School System. I have every confidence that you are prepared to meet whatever the future holds. MRS. JANET KLINGLER H.S. Secretary 6MR.

ZACHARIAH, RELLA 38ATHLETICS BULLDOGS MUSCLE IN ON CHAMPIONSHIP Looking back over the 1967 season I feel we have accomplished two things with our 6-1-2 record. At the start of the season no one really knew what kind of team we had. We proved to ourselves that we were a winner and we did it the hard way. Secondly, I feel we have started a defensive tradition based on desire and aggressive hardnosed football. One point kept us from an undefeated season which is a tribute to this fine squad. I am very proud of this squad which ranked as high as fifth in the state and am looking forward to next year. I also appreciate the fine support given to the team by the school and our loyal fans. “Greer’s Guerillas” got a lot of help from the sidelines from the assistant coaches Mr. Curlis and Mr. Coe. Bandaging the bruises and taking care of the equipment were the managers Joe Plummer and Gary Wire, (absent Bill Westenbarger) 401967 RECORD Ada - - -16 8 - Ada - - - 8 8 - Ada — - 8 7 - Spencerville Ada - - - 8 8 - -Delphos Jefferson Ada - - -12 0 - - Columbus Grove Ada — - 6 0 - Ada - - - 2 3 - Ada - - 28 0 - - North Baltimore Ada - - 22 0 - 41B.

KLINGLER Junior 43QUEEN ALICE REIGNS Qi September 29-30, Queen Alice Neiswander reigned over a wonderland of Homecoming festivities. Attendants for the annual event were Kay VanAtta, freshman; Pam Graham, sophomore; Janet Scott, junior; and Henri Prater, senior. The Bulldogs battled with Delphos Jefferson and came out muddy and tied 8-8. The queen’s crown was carried by Linda Bischoff, and Paul Weimer presented the game ball to co-captains Mike Tarr and Eric Kipker. 44OVER HOMECOMING FUN A most memorable and enjoyable evening was spent by all those attending the annual Homecoming Dance. Couples danced to the music of Bill Smith and His Swinging Gents, as an autumn atmosphere lingered about. Escorting Queen Alice Neiswander was Ron Wyss. Attendants and their escorts for the evening were: Kay VanAtta and Larry Dearth, Pam Graham and Jerry Dearth, Janet Scott and Jack Jordan, and Henri Prater and Dallas Hoffman. 45LACK OF EXPERIENCE HINDERS BULLDOGS A sign of true character is courage, determination, and good sportsmanship. At times it took courage for the Bulldogs to face the opponents, but with determination the best effort was put forth. Whether the score ended favorably or not, good sportsmanship prevailed. “When the Great Scorer came to write against the Bulldog name, he wrote not that they won or lost, but how they played the game The Bulldogs ended the season with a 3-15 record. Coach Curlis had these comments about the season, “We had our backs against the wall before the season started. We were the least experienced team in the conference. The tangibles, for having a losing season, were lack of experience and poor shooting. The intangibles are too numerous to mention. With three starters returning we should be respectable in 1969.“ 46STEVE KELLER Junior NILES PIPER Junior GARY WILKERSON Senior STEVE SOBERS Sr. Captain BILL BUTTERFIELD Sr. Captain STANDING: Coach Curlis, Mgr.

They won one and lost three in their dual and triangular meets but managed to stay up with the best of teams by placing second in their own invitational, fifth in the Northwest Conference, and fourth in the District. Junior Steve Keller showed a lot of promise by breaking the high jump record early in the season. He qualified in both the District and Regional track meets and went on to State to place ninth in his high jump event. Senior Bart Meyer traveled along the same route with the low hurdles. He qualified at both the District and Regionals but he just missed qualifying for the finals at State. Senior Brian Peppier was the most victorious of Ada’s cindermen. He broke records during the season in the mile and he lived up to his titles of “Co-athlete of the Year” and “Most Valuable Trackman of the Year” by becoming the State Champ in the 880 yard run in Class A and breaking the State record of 1:58.7 with his time of 1:57.6.

The team was young, with five sophomores, and only five returning lettermen. Altogether the team had a batting average of .252. Commenting on the season, Coach Curlis felt that the highlight was a 2-1 win over the highly regarded Delphos St. John team. With six lettermen returning next year, he feels that the future looks good. The Bulldogs had two tournament wins which were over Ridgemont and Waynesfield. They lost in the sectional final to Upper Scioto Valley with a score of 3-0. Senior Steve Sobers led the team with the highest batting average of .378. The “Most Valuable Player of the Year” award went to senior Mike Tarr. During the season he compiled a 6-2 pitching record with 92 strike-outs. STANDING: Coach Curlis, D. Shilling, B. Meyer, Asst.

Although perplexed by the crafty plans of Shalimar Ames, played by Pat Mankey, the student council maintained its final victories. Long remembered will be the strong disagreements of janitor, Ron Klingler, and scrub-woman, Jane Wilkerson.
