SUE YOUNG French Club 1. ADMINISTRATION SCHOOL BOARD SHAPE Kenneth Ward, principal To the Class of 1969: Congratulations to each of you as you complete your high school career. This is an important time in your life, in that it marks the completion of one phase and the beginning of another. A person ' s success in life often hinges on what has happened in high school and what occurs in the first few years after graduation. We are now closing out one of the most turbulent decades in the history of America. Unrest, militancy, and outright violence have been on the increase as one year follows another. During the 1970 ' s the winds of change and turbulence will increase to gale force; it will take a person of exceptional stability and insight to withstand the pressure. As you face all of this, attempt to be a part of the solution of problems, rather than part of the p roblems of the 70 ' s. I feel the real challenge facing youth today is to develope a blueprint for the future. We need a plan to solve the problems, and devise the programs neces¬ sary for tomorrow ' s world. This is your opportunity to bring about a greater society and a better America for all of us. May God guide you at this time in your life and help you to be successful in meeting the challenges of tomorrow in a meaningful and effective manner. Sincerely, STANDING: James Beadle SEATED: Richard Van Vranken and administration SCHOOL POLICIES Charles Coggins, superintendent Robert Birkenmyer, Ralph Henson, Charles Menden¬ hall, Olive Brown, Eugene Stewart To the Seniors: This year, as seniors, you are having the time of your lives. Do you realize that, in a short time, you will refer to these times as the “good old days? It is my hope that the school and home have been able to teach you the responsibilities that you should have as a citizen in our society. Too many people today want to enjoy the results of other people ' s work and responsibility without doing anything themselves to build up our society and make it better. I hope that when you leave school you will be well prepared for what¬ ever endeavor you may follow. If you are, then your parents and the school have accomplished their purpose. Best wishes to all.

THE END OF THE RAINBOW The 1968 season rolled on - victory after victory. K.V. A. rivals and non-conference teamsialike bowed to the Rams. But the pot of gold was not at the end of the rainbow! On a wet, slippery field November 9, the St. Philips Tigers broke the G. A. winning streak of 26 games, and the State Championship slipped out of our hands. This tells the story.

The Rams, lacking in experience and height, gave their all throughout each and every game. There were five seniors on the team: Gwen Brady, forward; Wen¬ dell Stoeffler, guard; Bob Under¬ wood, forward; Delmar Adkins, guard; and Norm Knapper, guard. Junior players were Bill Roberts, Bill Smith, Jeff Jones, David Redi- ker, David Coburn, and Carl Ger¬ man.
