The yearbook published with the idea in mind that 1970 was A Time for Us
Pat Conley, Editor-in-Chief Linda Long, Business Manager Mrs. Virginia Milnar, AdviserThe Year 1970 — A Time
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven. There is a time to be born and a time to die, but there is an interval between these two times that is of infinite importance. It is with a part of that interval that we are now concerned, the part that constitutes our school lives.
Perhaps our school lives could best be described as a time of challenges. During this time we develop knowledge and skills so that when our time to lead arrives we will be prepared to manage the affairs of the world with some degree of sensibility. As students, we strive to express our thoughts, ideals.
and attitudes in such a manner that they will be comprehensible to others. We compete for awards and honors and meet success or failure, but in either case, we may feel proud that we are able to meet the challenge. We find a time to feel excited about making a touchdown when we are twenty points behind, and the game is nearly over. And we find a time to feel nervous on opening night of a class play as the curtain slides open, and we must remember our lines. But whatever the challenge, however we met it, we will look back some ages hence and know that this time was our time.

Three new and improved subject programs were added -the Ad -vanced Placement Program in English and American History, the Occupational Work Experience Program, and an expanded program in Industrial Arts. A second big change was die scheduling of classes based on a module system.

The Bulldogs opened the 1969--1970 season with two tough games, Paulding and Spencerville. Ada lost to Paulding, 42-0 and to Spencerville, 15-0 due partly to injuries and inexperience. Ada next met Delphos Jefferson on home ground and outplayed them 21-14. When Ada went to Columbus Grove, they were up for a victory which they got,
11- 6. The next stop was back home against Bluffton who was tops in the conference. Ada tried hard but lost 42-6. Ada then went to .Elida, played them in the mud and the rain and won 7-6. The Bulldogs then walked past a weaker Crestview team, 33-22 and then hosted a weak Perry team whom they beat
12- 0. The last game was at home, but Ada wasn't up to Allen East as they lost 6-0.

... SENIOR IT IS...
Senioritis is a contagious disease which attacks only members of the Senior Class. It tends to cause headaches among administrators and teachers -parents too. Even scholars may become the uneducable nightmares that teachers dread. The class spirit tends to rise to a great fever of unity and support. There is no known cure for Senioritis except graduation.

The Senior year is the last time most of us will compete in athletic events. Seniors are honored with publicity and positions of responsibility on the teams. The last game becomes very important. No longer can we go to band contest or enter scholastic events. It is also the last time for class competition. After this year there will be no more Spirit Week and Interclass. Yet the complex competition of life awaits us.

KATHLEEN A. HALL. ..REMEMBERANCE...
There are many times a Senior will get to reminiscing about the past. A group of us will sit around and discuss past escapades . Remember when? And we laugh till we cry. We remember all sorts of things--major events, minor events, tragedies, fights, hilarious jokes, parties, romances, grades --just about everything and anything. Soon we will look back and say, Remember when we were Seniors?

Being a Senior can be a costly tiling. First there comes the ordering of keys, announcements, name cards and memoir books. When the keys arrive the Seniors have officially started to pay for a long list of Senior expenses. After the keys, it's time to pay for caps and gowns. And then comes Senior pictures. Still later comes the rest of your first order. And last but not least comes the thank-you notes. But a Senior couldn’t imagine not having these things. It’s well worth the cost.

.. .STUDIES. ..
Being a Senior means studying. We not only end up the school's required curriculum but we also try to take other courses of individual interest. Along with this comes studying for college tests and entrance exams. We rack our brains for term papers and research work. Through our complaints we crack the books to try and keep up with the extra last year work teachers pile on. And then last, but by no means least, is the studying for Senior finals. Yes, a Senior studies.

The question of the future is a question which problems all Seniors. We worry and wonder what we'll be doing this time next year. Some of us will be in college, others in the service, others working full time, and others married. We begin to prepare to act on those plans we've had for so long. We look forward to the future awaiting us.

Seniors participate in many, many things. We belong to athle -tic teams. We play in the band and sing in the choir. We belong to such clubs as GAA, Hi-Y, and Drama Club. We join vocational groups such as DCT, OWE, FFA, and FHA. We participate in scholastic organizations such as NHS or Latin and French clubs. We participate in class events such as Interclass.
MELINDA L. SOUSLEY
CHARLES M. SPAR.. .LEADERSHIP. ..
Seniors are leaders. We lead the student body. We hold the positions of leadership in clubs and organizations. We lead the team--on the field and off. Seniors have the experience and interest and responsibility to hold offices and to be leaders. Leadership is a difficult task, but we Seniors do our best to be able leaders.

A Senior celebrates graduation from September until June. We have Senior parties and plan gala events to celebrate that terrible wonderful day called graduation. We celebrate games, school parties and all sorts of events. In truth, we celebrate to celebrate.

A Senior has many feelings about graduation. We look forward to it.
We breathe a sigh of relief as we near our goals. We laugh about how great it is. And yet we tend to be sentimental about actually leaving school. Graduation is such an important day of our lives. Ultimately, being a Senior means graduation.

The band prepares to play ’’Happy Heart’’ and ’’Big Spender.
Erwin and Kelly do their thing.
Seniors ended the school year with two big, much -awaited events. First, on May 29, the traditional Class Night program was presented to an audience of parents and friends. The readings of the class history and will received hearty applause as did the more dramatic presentation of the class prophecy. The class of 1970 also at this time presented a representation of their talent. Music seemed to be the basis of the seniors’ talent with a band, a group, and a girls' ensemble making music and two chorus girls, two accomplished prima donnas, a stripper, and a host of seniors dancing and otherwise performing to music. Earlier in the day, the seniors presented, for underclassmen, a preview of the evening at the Class Day Assembly.
The second big event arrived two days later, Sunday, May 31. Graduation.. .at last! Held at Lehr Auditorium at 2:00 p.m., the 88th graduation exercises for Ada High School combined, for the second year, baccalaureate and commencement into one ceremony. The baccalaureate speaker. Rev. Aubrey Hancock, spoke on youthful possessions. Following, salutatorian Cec Miller enlarged on the class motto, and valedictorian Pat Conley spoke of pride and responsibility of graduates. Special music was presented by a senior trumpet quartet and a senior mixed ensemble. Then in finale, each senior received his diploma and congratulations from board president Mrs. Nancy DaPore.

135To Begin Again
These pages have endeavored to depict the spirit of the school year 1969--1970.
It has been their purpose to reflect the creativity that spices the daily and, at times, monotonous routine of school life, as well as to picture the kaleidoscope of intellectual and athletic achievements.
The year itself has been an impressive one, one punctuated with moon landings, Paris peace talks, school bond issues, and senior trips to Old Man's Cave. Rivalry and cooperation between classes began in September, carried over to the new year, and lasted throughout May. We made many new friends, fought with old enemies, and, of course, made new enemies. But whether we admit it or not, we had fun.
Someday, not so very long from now, we’ll look back on this year and say, Remember when we were seniors back in '70? When all those guys painted the sidewalks? When we had that big controversy over the dress code? And when we won a basketball game, remember how the stands went wild?” We will remember the first day of school, September 3, 1969, how very foggy it was, and how Sue Roth and Lynn Dilts stood at the front door greeting everyone with complementary issues of THE VOICE. We'll remember the first, somewhat depressing football game with Paulding, and then we'll remember Homecoming--all its beauty, pageantry, and spirit. Band members will never forget the night we were to march at the Elida football game until it rained and Mr. Ansley made us sit on the buses. But the braid on the uniforms and the plumes faded anyway, and the white overlays and hats became speckled with purple and gold.
We had a lot of fun that fall, but when Christmas came we were ready for a vacation and a few parties on the side. Yet before we knew it, we were back in school trying our best to win Spirit Week. And none of us can ever forget Interclass--all the long hours we spent making decorations and all the money, too, all the hopes we had for our four contestants. Then we'll remember the prom, the elegance, the fringed camels, the costumed servers, and the good times afterwards. We'll remember a lot of little things and some bigger things like people drinking cold coffee from the spout of the pot, the Dad-In the senior members of Y-Teens presented at the Daddy-Daughter Dinner, Hi-Y volleyball games, GAA tournaments, VICA candy sales, OWE record hops, Class Day and Night, and the class party the night before. But perhaps the one thing that we’ll remember best is graduation. We were so nervous when we marched in, afraid that we might trip on the stairs to the stage or drop our diplomas in front of everyone. But when we came out, we came out proudly, some smiling, some sober, some crying.
Yes, we will remember 1970 as a very good year, one worth remembering. It was a time for us. And now, like so many other things that begin and end and begin again, we end this annual and begin the rest of our lives.
