The 1969 Homecoming Coronation was in step with today’s moving world by landing a special girl on the moon.
The Mistress and Master of Ceremonies, Carolyn Young and Donald Donini. introduced the Orbitors in Space, the Lilliputian Space Crew, and finally announced Miss Janice Hill as 1969 Homecoming Queen. Miss Hill was escorted by Football Captain Kim Burke.
The Lilliputian Space Crew consisted of football bearer. Mike Karoski; crown bearer. Matthew Gram-mer; and star bearer, Cynthia Booth. Cynthia presented Queen Janice with a "falling star” to complete the Coronation theme, "Girl on the Moon”. Kathryn Gray and Rhonda Russell scattered rose petals to the Queen’s throne. Train bearers were Karla Greenwalt and Lori Lee Stritzel.
The music for this special occasion was provided by the F.C.H.S. Band and the melodious voices of the Chordettes. The two selections of the Chordettes were "Blue Moon” and "Happy Heart.”

52As the junior class began its third of four years here at F.C.H.S., time seemed to pass more quickly than in previous years. Many new and important responsibilities were suddenly placed upon their shoulders. As upperclassmen they were looked upon to set the examples of leadership, scholarship, and dependability.
As juniors they were concerned about the many new aspects of their future lives. It was required of all juniors to take college preparatory tests to be used for future reference. They suddenly became more aware of the importance of grades and their curriculum choices.
Junior activities for this year were many worthwhile community projects that benefited both the public and the educational unit of the town.
Our class chose as attendants to the queen in the Homecoming Coronation two lovely and charming girls, Marie Doerr and Cindy Morris.
The juniors also elected as class officers the following: president, Tim Ricci; vice-president, Rick Orlowski; secretary, Linda Lamont; and treasurer, Diana Absher. Mr. Warren was the class sponsor.

116The chorus, under the direction of Mr. Morton, provided the students of F.C.H.S. with many enjoyable concerts this year. Although the members enjoy singing, it took many hours of practice and much hard work to be able to perform their numbers with perfection.
This year there were two chorus classes; one second hour and one fourth hour. All of these students, who donate their own time, have helped our school gain the reputation of having one of the finest choruses in Southern Illinois.

denotes conference gamesWith the turnout of only twenty boys the Redbirds overcame the shortage of manpower to finish the season with a 6-3-1 record.
The 1969 season was the best in several years. Coach Winter’s Redbirds were contenders for the South 7 crown.
The Redbirds persistent and tenacious defense pulled through many victories. The experienced Redbirds showed the advantage of ball control offense. They shook the foundations of many opposing teams with the ball carrying abilities of quarterback Don Bolin and fullback Tim Ricci. Ricci was chosen as one of the most outstanding players in Southern Illinois.
The season started with a cancelled Cairo game and a 6-0 loss to Johnston City and ended with victories over consistent conference contenders Mt. Vernon, Herrin, and Marion. Eleven senior Redbirds ended their high school careers on a high note with a memorable 18-0 victory over archrival Benton.

With Tim Ricci and Tom Jordan leading re-bounders against taller foes,
Redbirds showed that team work and the will to win can overcome all obstacles.
