Presented by the Annual Staff
Ada High SchoolSeniors.......................5
Advertising 141The theme of the 1973 Ada High School Annual is "Keep on Truckin'..."
Our front cover and this special theme page are adorned with four cartoon-like characters who are commonly known as the "Keep on Truckin' Men."
What does this theme really mean? We, the members of the annual staff, feel that this slogan is quite meaningful. It can signify the desire to move on to new and exciting ambitions and horizons that will best suit what you want. Keep looking for what you really desire and when you find it, you will know that you have been "Truckin'" to discover your goal. If detours confront you as you "Keep on Truckin’", just remember that these obstacles will eventually right themselves and you can continue where you left off.
"We" wish that you will keep this thought in your mind for many years to come. "We" hope it will help you find the way to what you truly desire.4Seniors “Keep on Truckin’’

93Juniors Keep on Truckin-Sweep Spirit Week CompetitionSpirit Week
Juniors Eighth Grade Sophomores
This year, as always, there were many different themes for the Spirit Week competition. Themes varied from the Juniors' winning theme, "Father Fries and his Nursery Rhymes" to the Sophomores Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."Spirit Week in Bulldog Country
The "Spirit” found in "Spirit Week" is easily seen in this picture of the "Spirit Week" pep rally. The Freshmen not to be "out-done" by anyone, are seen busy waving their signs.
What is Spirit Week? Spirit Week is an annual competition between grades seven through twelve. It involves each class making decorations, giving a five minute skit at the Spirit Week pep rally, and giving their very most in spirit at the pep rally. A panel of judges, made up of teachers, decide which of the classes was best in each of the three categories, and then picks an overall winner, according to which class has gained the most points. The purpose of Spirit Week is to raise the morale of the basketball team and school alike.

The 1972-73 annual staff at Ada High School has completed another volume of the WE. At this time we would like to thank all of our advertisers and patrons. Without their donations and patronage we would not be able to publish the WE. With their donations they are supporting the student body's way of remembering their years at A. H.S. The staff would again express our gratitude to our local merchants and businessmen.
