Hey I go! Hey you go! Hey everybody goes to cool school! Early in the morning, the sound of lockers slamming, voices soft, then loud, then louder yet. Bells ringing, doors shutting, announcements blasting from the P.A. Sports, plays, queens, homework, always something going on. Then the long-waited day finally arrives — GRADUATION — Now what? College? Work? Or maybe you ' ll be the one who gets caught by the draft. How many of us will survive the next 10 years? We must live while we have life. To do this you must be yourself! Do your own thing! EXPRESS YOURSELF!

Everyone " did their thing " , whether it was with a brush or a spatula and bowl. As the final bit of frosting is scraped from the bowl, the girls complete the cookies for the bake sale. The artist busily stroking the canvas, expresses himself with color and texture. There are hours of practice, scales, and checking off music before the final competition. The burner is lit, solution boiling, test tubes in place — Will it be a success? ACADEMICS The advanced math class learns as Carl Smith demonstrates. A geometry problem is clearer to Julie Bailey as Mr. Baird explains it on the board. Concentration on details is an important and necessary part of electronics class. Dave Clere and Ed Matyas. Radioactivity is studied by Mike Bariette and Fred Kusian in physics. 14 An experiment in general science looks easy to freshman Julian Lozoya as he is assisted by Sue Ackerman. Students Experiment In Unknown " 1 - chloro - 1 - methylcyclo - hex- ane. " " E MC " " In a reaction, mass is neither created nor destroyed. " " A + B = C " Sounds echo the halls from the science and math classes throughout the day. A large variety of science and math courses help prepare students for college and jobs after gradua- tion. With our laboratory facilities, Genoa students are able to learn through experimentation. An im- provement to the biology lab this year was the operating room. Math students rely on various instru- ments for measurements and learn with the help of Mr. Porter ' s toys. Rats are used by biology students for observation. Steve Pinson chloroforms the rat before op- erating on it. Chemistry students Sam Rameriz and Mike Peters work with caution as they measure their solutions. 15 Discovering Technical Skills " Skip two spaces after every peri- od. " " Three-quarter inch plywood. " " Two and a half yards of corduroy material. " " Scale of one half inch equals one foot. " These are some of the common expressions used in the vocational departments at Genoa High School. Industrial arts and mechanical drawing tries to teach boys how to plana and carry out projects and to use tools and machines. These can be expanded into many occupa- tions. Home economics prepares girls for homemaking and family life. Girls taking business courses are ready to go out into the world more composed and capable.

Studying for an American history test puts junior Mark Wenig deep in thought and concentration. The culture and customs of the people is part of Jackie Wolcott ' s and Sharon Porter ' s Spanish education. Spanish four students Adelina Ochoa and Bill Nolte demonstrate how to put on a sombrero. History And Other Countries By the time a student graduates from Genoa High School he should have a knowledge of the histories and the governments of the world and the United States. Sophomores are required to take World History where they learn the histories, gov- ernments, and customs of the many countries of the world. They taped make believe interviews with fa- mous people of the past for a spe- cial project. The history of the American peo- ple is studied during the Junior year. This study of the United States is continued into the Senior year with American government. The highpoint of the year for seniors is a trip to Port Clinton to see how the county government operates. Not only does the GAHS student learn of his own country, but he has an opportunity to learn of two for- eign countries. Classes are taught in both French and Spanish. The class covers not only the language but also the customs and the way of life of these counties. Above: French student Jenny Spears concentrates on the recording of a conversation in that language. Left: Senior Bill Werner glances through magazines trying to find a subject for the Friday cur- rent events assignment in government. 19 Gym Class Provides " Action " Physical Education is required for all students unless they have a credit in health. Gym class means a study hall, two period class or gym every other day. The question " Whose gym day is it today? " was often heard in the halls on Friday because boys and girls alternate Fridays for gym classes. During the year the physical edu- cation department covered many fields of athletics. The girls spent each gym period playing action packed games such as softball, vol- leyball, deck tennis, basketball, badminton, soccer and gymnastics. This year the girls, as well as the boys were instructed on how to use the new mini-tramp. The boys played baseball, foot- ball, basketball, badminton, volley- ball, lifted weights, wrestled and tumbled. Keeping his eye on the bail Don Mathews is set for another hit. Above: Debbie Kusner does the Russian splits off the mini-tramp. Below: Boys lift weights to tone and shape up their muscles. Jeff Vogelpohl dunks another basket as Mr. Johnson spots.

The race down the court is ended with a shot for the basket. 21 A paintbrush and canvas are used by Art II student, Denise Hammitt to express her artistic pa talents. Before marching to the football field for the game, band member, Julie Bailey waits in front of the Jr.-Hi. building. Concentration is a necessity for music stu dent, Carol Ammons. Sitting on the floor in the hall seems to be the best way for Fred Levee to learn perspective drawing. 22 Christmas cards made by the silk-screen method are arranged by Sue Leppert. Student Talents Are Expressed The art and music departments provided many opportunities for self-expression. Over 180 students participated in music classes that ranged from marching and concert band to beginning and advanced chorus. Music theory and music appreciation were also offered. Solo and ensemble contest aided musi- cians in perfection and perform- ance before a judge for a rating. Concerts highlighted both the cho- rus and band ' s year. Art I and II concentrated on the basic fundamentals of art. Some specialized work was done in Art Appreciation such as a scale model of a Grecian temple. Commercial Art along with their study of letter- ing and design found time to spon- sor the all-school art show. Many projects and posters were complet- ed by Art Service. In March, several students entered the Port Clinton Art Show. Bill Nolte received a first prize, third prize, and an honorable mention. Orchestra member, Don Drummond, fingers the strings of his bass. Dividing her attention between her music and IVIr.

Teammates Scott Cambell and Jeff Ross were named to the all NLL first team. 24 Outstanding Students Honored Ernie Sanchez will be trying out to attend the Kansas City Royals ' baseball camp. Traditionally Awards Assembly is held each year in May. At that time recognition is given to those who have won scholastic honors during the year. The I Dare You Award is the outstanding honor given to a senior boy and girl who represent the best in character, leadership, scholarship, and service to both their school and their community. The boy chosen to make the trip to Washington for the Presidential Classroom must also have the above qualities, as well as an inter- est in government. Scholarships are awarded here rather than at graduation. At Awards Day various depart- ments give medals to their out- standing students — Outstanding Band Member, Outstanding Art Student, Outstanding GAA member FBLA, FHA and FTA awards. New Quill and Scroll members are recognized with pins and certificates. This is the first year that the Betty Crocker and DAR award were won by the same person — Mama Sanderson. However, this is not the first year that Bill Nolte has won the Art Award. Seniors who received scholarships were Audrey Vogtsberger, Sue Richards, and Judy Rice. Winner of the Betty Crocker homemaker award and the D.A.R. Americanism test was Marna Sanderson. 25 The Boys ' and Girls ' State delegates for 1970 were Joanne Schell, Sam Ramirez. Judy Rice.

" It echoes throughout the halls As Friday ' s game draws closer. Not just any game. It ' s homecoming. The Thursday night bonfire Attracts football fans Of all ages. This year, many interested Students got involved Instead of just talking about Politics. They went to Campaign dinners, to meetings. And to the polls.

These are both provided by the band and are under the direction of Mr. Eash. The majorettes lead the band from the Junior High building to the football field and then present a dif- ferent halftime show for each home game using their twirling and danc- ing abilities. They use props such as umbrellas and fire batons. The Pep Band plays their music between the reserve and varsity basketball games and during quar- ter and halftime breaks for home games. Their strains of " Sweet Georgia Brown " not only entertain the fans but give the players a rhythm for their warm ups. Baton routines and band music mix rhythmically for the halftime show. As the lights dim. a murmur rises from the stands. Our majorettes run onto the field and per- form their specialty — twirling fire.

This was the first step in producing the year- book. Following this were many long months of planning layouts, choosing pictures, and writing copy so that everything fit together and looked just right. The annual staff was elected late in their junior year and began early in September to plan the annual. They sponsored a king and queen dance. One girl and one boy were chosen by their class- es to represent them and collect money as one penny equalle d one vote. Albert Ochoa and Connie Rudes were pronounced the win- ners at the Friday night dance. Work for the annual staff continued long after graduation to include all the spring activities. The Comet Tales staff published the school paper twice a month, printing all the current school news.

Before school began, they painted the bleachers at the football field and cleaned up the stadium so that the games could be more enjoyable for the fans. Their latest project was the purchase of visual-aid equipment. Key Clubbers, being concerned with the rising drug problem, presented several drug abuse programs to the community. Genoa Key Club was selected as the top Key Club in their division in the State of Ohio. Student Council was changed this year and provided more repre- sentation of the students. It consist- ed of three sections: the general assembly, the inter-club council, and the executive council. Meetings were held weekly so many more goals could be accomplished. They were successful in revising the dress code, and in April, they cleaned up Veterans ' Memorial park in Genoa for the beginning of the summer season. KEY CLUB: Standing In Front: B. Skilliter; K.

Gaylord Sheldon wields the paint spray gun here. Future Homemakers of America and Future Farmers of America are clubs concerned with the future vocations of their members. They shared a chili supper in March that the FHA members prepared. One of the FHA meetings was a pot-luck dinner with the Oak Harbor FHA members. In December, the FHA decorated the Lutheran Home of Mercy in Williston for the holiday season. Santa Glaus passed out gifts at the FHA Christmas party for small children. The annual Mother- Daughter Tea and style show was held in January. Several conven- tions were attended during the year. Nancy Chalfin, Debbie Jensen, and Jenny Widmer attended the state convention in April. FFA members were best known for selling popcorn at the football games. The members also sold seeds as a moneymaking project. School grounds were plowed, culti- vated, and tended by the group. They purchased tools and equip- ment for the school with the money they earned. FFA: Front Row: Fred Huss, Tom Burdge, Bill Vargo, John Adams, Mark Theilen.

Many services such as making signs and displays for the schools and area are undertaken by this club. In April the club sponsored an All School Art Show for students of the Genoa area schools. The annual " Psychedelic Dance " was also held by the Art Club that month. This dance was their biggest project of the year. Decorations of beads and posters, along with the mod cloth- ing of the people and the sounds of a rock band filled the cafeteria to its capacity. High school librarians are mem- bers of Hi-Li. In December this group held a Christmas Tea. Former librarians were invited to return and see changes which had taken place. Hi-Li members also made a field trip to the library at Bowling Green State University to compare notes.

Bottom: is Maria who likes to look at pictures. Membership in the French and Spanish clubs is limited to students presently taking French or Spanish. Each of these clubs has adopted a child, one from France and one from Portugal. They earned money all year to support these children. The Spanish third and fourth year classes observed the migrant children at Allen School in Septem- ber to practice their speaking techniques. Their meetings are held during class time where they play games to improve their speaking abilities. For their end of the year activity, both clubs went out to eat and to Cinema to see a show.

In December they presented a Christmas play ' The Villain in the Toy Shop " for the children at Allen Central and the Genoa elementary schools. They also had charge of the make-up at the musical. For their last activity, they saw " West Side Story " at Bowling Green Uni- versity Theater and had dinner. JCWA had programs at their meeting and attended district semi- nars in Toledo. In the spring they participated in the U.N. model as- sembly in Toledo. Some of the members made a trip to New York in November to visit the U.N. They also had foreign exchange students from Ghana and Belguim visit our school. Appearing in the Christmas play are Linda Joehlin and Theresa Gargac.

Varsity Club is made up of all the boys who have won let- ters in school sponsored athletics by earning points. The popcorn and pop sold at the basketball games was provided by these boys. With the money they earn at the conces- sion stand, they have a banquet at the end of the year. The Girls ' Athletic Association (GAA) was busy most of the y ear and sponsored several activities. This year the GAA had the gym ev- ery Monday after school for the in- tramural program. Their year was kicked off with the football home- coming which they planned, deco- rated for, and presented. In April they sponsored the annual " Battle of the Classes " basketball game and presented a trophy to the winning senior team. k J Eji BL Ri VARSITY CLUB: Front Row: F. Molina, K. Gladden, M.

" Christmas in Crimson " was the theme chosen by the Senior GAA members for this year ' s Christmas formal, held December 4. Friday afternoon before the dance the cur- tains to the cafeteria were closed, concealing the transformation while the seniors decorated inside. As the couples entered, they strolled along a cobblestone walk and through large double doors. The fire in the fireplace burned be- hind the Christmas tree. Rocking chairs on a hand-woven rug created a warm, homey effect. The crimson theme was carried out with red lighting and decorations. For the first time, attendance was not limited to only GAA members; the formal was open to the whole school. Eighty-five couples and sev- eral faculty members enjoyed a lovely, romantic evening. Music was provided by the Star- lighters. During the band ' s break, there was a surprise visit from San- ta Claus, who gave candy canes to several girls and their dates. The dance brought a holiday spirit to Genoa, and made Christmas vaca- tion seem nearer. Sophomores seem enchanted by the music of the band. Tammy Smith and Glen Draper stop during a break to enjoy each others company. 59 Rhonda Haeft Reigns As Queen " Sounds of Music " was the theme of the 1970 football home- coming assembly. Each of the six- teen candidates chose a theme song to be used for her poster. These posters hung in the hallway for a week prior to the assembly, and were judged for the most attractive. The winning poster belonged to Sharon Porter and was made by Bill Nolte to the theme " Casino Royale. " Schoolwide voting took place in Wednesday to narrow the 16 to 5. These five were voted on by the football team Friday afternoon a few minutes before the assembly. The music theme was used as each girl and her escort entered the gymnasium across a bridge. The atmosphere grew tense as the moment for the final announce- ment neared. Then the emcees, Bill Nolte and Jenny Smith, announced the top five. After fumbling with the enve- lope, Bill finally said, " And now, our 1971 Football Homecoming Queen — Miss Rhonda Haeft! " r ' Escort David Huston congratulates Rhonda with a kiss, and unknowingly puts her crown on backwards. The look on Rhonda ' s face shows her surprise as she is announced queen. From this thrilling moment on. she shall reign as 1970football homecomlngqueen. At the homecoming assembly, emcees Jenny Smith and Bill Nolte announce each candi- date, her escort, and her theme song. 60 Each candidate ' s theme song was aptly played by sopho- more Julie Bailey as they crossed the bridge into the gymnasium. The queen ' s traveling trophy is presented to Queen Rhonda by Miss Ja- net Widmer, the 1969 football homecoming queen. They are being watched by crownbearers Kristen Oberhaus and Lukey Billingsley .

A peculiar mixture of tension, excitement, and anticipation seemed to infect everyone in the school, as the spirit of Homecoming Week climaxed at the pep rally. Thursday night, the student parking lot was transformed into a sea of exuberant fans surrounding a giant bonfire. Friday, the halls were filled with noisy, excited students thinking only of the big announcement and the game. Finally, the queen and her court were announced and the tension for the game continued to build. Before the game began. Queen Rhonda Haeft and her attendants walked across the field with their escorts.

" SPORTS School Shows Its Comet Pride The 1970 season was not an out- standing one for the Comet football team. The team was mostly small and inexperienced, with many sopho- mores who had never before played varsity. But our team and our fans have something no other school could — Comet pride. The height of the season was the November 6 game with Lake. The tension mounted as the score tied at 12-12. A Comet pass was inter- cepted, but was saved as Joe Lach tackled the man in the end zone, raising the score to 14-12 and win- ning the game for Genoa. Third year letterman Jim Reynolds protects the ball and pushes through. Seniors prove their spirit as they let loose with a mighty yell.

Varsity Faced A Rough Season Only two players, Bill Werner and Ernie Sanchez had played varsity ball regularly in previous years. Er- nie and Bill were among the leading league scorers all year. Ernie fin- ished 3rd in the league with 13.9. He also was named to the 3rd team All- League. The team was dominated by se- niors. John Briggle, the leading re- bounder, broke the Genoa rebound- ing record in the 2nd Oak Harbor game with 21. In the first Oak Har- bor game he sparked the team to victory. Jim Helle, the playmaker, was instrumental in Genoa ' s win- ning the Eastwood league game. Carl Smith, the 5th starter, played one of his best games at Oak Harbor and scored his highest number of points, 13, in the Eastwood tourna- ment game. The team set a new record with the number of field goals in one game. They had 35 against Oak Ha rbor. The old record was 32. The Reserve Team, made up en- tirely of sophomores, was led by Coach Baird for his first year. They won ten of their games and present- ed an exciting hour before every varsity game. Six of their games were won or lost in the last seconds of the fourth quarter. Top Right: Before the varsity game begins. Carl Smith breaks through the crepe paper onto the court.

Then the boys decided that if they were going to accom- plish anything it would have to be in the tournaments. They beat Gibson- burg 4 to 2, and Cardinal Stritch 6 to 1 to become sectional champs. From there they moved on to polish off Anthony Wayne 7 to 4 and Ross- ford 8 to 4 and win the district crown. As one of 16 teams left in Class AA in Ohio they were scheduled to play Margaretta in a regional semi- final on May 28. The Comets left the high school early Friday morning to the echoes of a pep meeting send off. Some 80 Comet fans were in attendance at Mansfield to cheer their Comet team on. The Comets lost the game 5 to 2, but their fans still consider them to be topdogs. =1 Above: Another practice grounder Is socked to the outfield by Coach Baird.

Cross Country And Track Teams Cross-country is a fairly new sport in Genoa and suffered a rough season. But it takes a certain kind of courage to face a vastly superior number of opponents knowing thiat victory is almost beyond reach. The Comet Track team was a winner. Perhaps they did not score many points in the larger meets, but nevertheless they are winners. This team learned to compete and con- tribute all they possessed. Led by seniors like Bill Werner and Dave Clere, they provided a formidable competitor when face to face m their individual races. The under- classmen led by Terry Hutcheson picked up this clue and united to help themselves and their team- mates to performances they once thought beyond their capabilities. The Track Team ' s record was 5-4 in dual meets, 2nd in the Ottawa County Meet, and 3rd in the San- dusky-Ottawa County Meet. Precise timing is a necessity for track man Dave Clere when jumping the low hurdles. CROSS-COUNTRY TEAM: Kneeling: F. Molina loff, K. Gladden, J. Herman. J. Opfer, A. Skaggs. Standing: F. Kusian, B.

The Genoa Reds bowling team, comprised of seniors Bill Brooks, Mike Bielowski, Bob Shields, Mike Haack, and juniors Mike Parlette and Jim Fredericks, bowled their way to the NLL championship. Dur- ing their very successful season in which they lost only two matches, the Genoa bowlers also rolled a school record high team series. The Genoa Whites bowled a good season with a 6-6 record. Three seniors were outstanding on this year ' s wrestling team. Glen Parsil, a senior wrestling at 132 pounds captured first place in the Springfield Invitational, second in the NLL, and fifth in the state sec- tionals. Wrestling in the 167 pound class, Joe Lach, also a senior, pinned down a first in the Spring- field and Lakota Invitationals and in the NLL, as well as a second in the Northwood Tournament. Al Scaggs, the last of the senior trio and wres- tling at 119 pounds, wrestled to a second place in the Northwood Tournament. The Most Valuable Player award was presented to Joe Lach, a four year letterman. Fred Levee, a prom- ising sophomore, was voted by the players as the Most Improved Wrestler.

Cheerleaders Encourage Spirit Who are those strange little men with the huge heads coming from the girl ' s locker room? Or those people charging in front of the foot- ball team, racing onto the field? Or the girls leaping around on the bas- ketball court doing cartwheels? They are all the same people — our cheerleaders. These girls give much of their time practicing cheers and planning skits to urge the Comet fans to yell a little louder and ex- press their spirit. Three of our cheerleaders, Jackie Wolcott, Sharon Skees, and Connie Rudes attended a ICF cheerleading camp at Ypsilanti, Michigan, in July. They placed 5th over various squads from Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. Supercomet this year was Candy Walton, who brightened the football field with her sparkling gold suit and gold boots. Cheerleader Marcy Peiffer is pleased as the Comet score is raised two more points. CHEERLEADERS: Joanne Schell, captain; Marcy Peiffer, Sharon Skees, Rhonda Haeft, Judy Rice, Jacl ie Wolcott.

Standing: Mr. George Donnelly, Supt.; Mr. Robert Samson; Mr. Lyie Shiffert. Not pictured - Mr. Ken Sheets. The Superintendent of all Genoa schools is Mr. George Donnelly. Mr. Thomas Jennings did a fine job in his first year as a high school principal. 84 Board Hires New Principa The offices at the Administration Depart- ment are organized by Linda Lobdell. The Board of Education hired Mr. Thomas Jennings to be the new high school principal. He came from Bowsher high school in Toledo to serve Genoa in his first year as a principal. He instituted many new ideas at Genoa. The student council was revised under his direction to be more effective and powerful. The Board worked hard this year attempting to pass the school levy. They finally succeeded on their third try in December. The student council submitted a new dress code to the Board. They approved the dress code and put it into effect immediately. This new dress code allowed girls to wear pant suits and boys to have longer hair. The administrative offices are organized by Linda Lobdell at the Administration Office in Clay Cen- ter, and by Pat Fondessy at the high school. Mr. George Donnelly is in his sixth year as Superintendent of Schools. Mr. Donnelly is in charge of five school buildings and the Administration Office. Under the supervision of Mr. Donnelly class- room additions have been made to the Brunner Building and to the High School Building, as well as an auditorium to the high school. The high school office would be complete chaos without Mrs. Pat Fondessy. Effiency is obtained through the help of the office workers: Deb Fork, Joanne Schell, Adelina Ochoa, Jill Harbal, Judy Rice, Ruth Hodulik, Rhonda Haeft, Betty Lau, Charlene Dietrich. 85 Faculty Have Many Activities The 3:10 bell is a welcome sound to not only the students, but also to all of the teachers. For some mem- bers of the faculty it means another two to three hours at school with football, cheerleading, band or some other kind of practice. Many of the others sit in on club meet- ings, acting as advisors, offering their advice and suggestions. When the bell rings on Wednesday, some lucky teacher gets to take his turn guardingthe detention study hall. Special meetings, decoration, cleaning, planning, counseling, re- hearsals, tutoring, then its home to cook supper or fix the leak in the roof. Finally free and relaxing at home, the teacher has to make the big choice whether to grade the tests, reports, papers, term papers or to make out seating charts, daily plans, and new tests. It seems as though the teachers job is never done. Each teacher at Genoa High school IS involved in something that makes high school more enjoyable for the students. This year the Key club chose Mr. Robert Baird as the teacher of the year, for his dedica- tion and service to the school. Mr. Eash teaches Music Theory, a new course atGerioa High School.

The lines form and as everyone is madly grabbing for the trays the cooks work busily, pil- ing mashed potatoes on all of the plates. An early start every day as well as much experience is the key to the fine meals served in the cafeteria. The cafeteria workers, cashiers, and OWA all work to help the cooks. They all play an important role in making lunch hour a time to relax. Whether it ' s count-out change or washing trays these students are alway busy. There are two people that roam the halls everyday picking up paper, sweeping or dusting. They are Ray and Leroy, everyone ' s friends. The janitors work long hard hours to keep the building in beautiful condition. Whenever there is a movie to be shown or a bulb to be replaced ev- eryone calls on Mr. Novotney ' s troops, the electronics class. Cau- tiously wheeling a projector cart down the hall, these boys are a real help to the school. COOKS: Bessie Strohscher. Jane Swartz, Joyce Lusk, Mary Mathews.

" This comedy was the tale of six aspiring young actors, three boys, played by Bill Brooks, Don Drummond, and Sam Ramirez; and three girls, played by Kaye Clark, Deb Fork, and Joyce Mireles, that live together in a New York apart- ment. They are trying to get a pro- ducer, Bill Nolte, to see them put on a play he produced in the hopes he will hire them. The plot thickens as Dottie Coburn ' s friend Muriel, por- trayed by Betty Lau, tells Mr. Co- burn that the six are living together. Several untimely appearances by the crazy landlady and a slight flur- ry with the police add to the spice of theshow. Left: " But I only wanted to take a bath!

Our senior year conclud- ed our preparation for the future. From senior pictures in July until graduation day, our year is filled with involvement — The first " big day " of being the oldest in the build- ing and being looked up to by fresh- men. Football games filled with " se- nior spirit " echoing through the stands. Trips to Port Clinton to reg- ister for the draft, as another guy turns eighteen. Government class- es, day after day, teaching us about our country. Homecoming queens chosen from our classmates to rep- resent our school. The senior class play. Out of the Frying Pan, is presented with many mistakes but much laughter. The year ends with the class trip to Ce- dar Point and finally — graduation. As we await the end of the ceremo- ny, some think of parties, some think of vacations, but most think that — yes — this is the first day of the rest of our lives.

Ill Juniors Choose Suspenseful Play " I Was A TeenAge Dracula " was the play chosen by the Junior class officers to be presented November 20, 1970. It was directed by Mr. Charles Johnson. The plot centered around Steve Draca, played by Mike Schimming, and Sue Marshall, por- trayed by Sharon Skees. The plot builds as Steve arrives and is thought to be a vampire by everyone but Sue. Then people around the neighborhood begin to disappear, and a patient from a nearby sanatorium escapes. Every- one holds Steve responsible for the troublesome happenings. There is a surprise ending as a romance blooms between Steve and Sue. Uncle Clyde, played by Marty Wicks, turns out to be the vampire and the villain of the play.

They had the smallest class, numbering only one hundred forty-five mem- bers. This was evident at pep meet- ings when their class didn ' t fill their allotment of bleachers. At the end of their sophomore year they ordered their class rings, being the first ever to do so, but due to a strike the rings were not deliv- ered until September. They started earning money for their Junior-Senior prom by having the traditional candy sale. In No- vember they made more money with their Junior Class Play, " I Was a Teenage Dracula. " February began the busiest time for the Juniors. From then on the only thing they were concerned with was the prom. Picking a theme, choosing chairmen and commit- tees, and ordering the decorations took up the first few months, but the real madness began about the end of April. Suddenly all the deco- rations arrived, the invitations need- ed addressing, and the ball started rolling. Attendant to the basketball queen represent- ing the Junior class is Linda Shiffert.

Sophomores are looking forward to the responsibili- ties of being Juniors. They do the usual things — serve at the prom and the band banquet. Sophomore boys may now play varsity ball; the girls can now be reserve cheerleaders. Their course of study is not so structured, and they are able to choose more of their own subjects. But this year our sophomore class moved a little from this groove of tradition. In October they held a pen sale to begin their savings for the prom. January brought the big- gest change as the sophomores chose and ordered their class rings, the earliest of any class. Many of the boys in the class showed a fine athletic performance this year. The sophomore class shows a promise of continued and enthu- siastic efforts to improve Genoa High School with their spirit and pride.

The first day of school, with everyone prancing down the halls in the latest fashions and shiny, new shoes; the special feeling that was present as the homecoming game approached; play rehearsals and performances; the salty smell of popcorn that filled the Friday after- noon halls; SPIRIT, like no other year; the relief felt as the 3;10 bell rang every day, especially on Friday; great friends you know you ' ll never see as much of, or again; the wild tingle down the spine each time we won, and the dry throat and tears when we lost; teachers you ' d like to talk to again, and those you ' d love to , . All of these memories and many more are kept fresh in this yearbook. Now as the cover closes, and it is shoved back on the shelf they stay trapped in time and space, for you to explore . , , whenever you please. It was sure- ly a year that will never be forgotten. Not by the stu- dents and faculty at Genoa High School ... or by you. The 1971 Limelight Staff would like to express its gratitude to Mr. Earl Parks of The American Yearbook Company for the ideas and help he gave us throughout the year; Powell Studios for capturing just the right expressions in their photographs; the local businesses for the support they gave us; and the students and fac- ulty of Genoa High School for their cooperation. We would like to extend a special thank you to our advisor, Mrs. David, for without her help we wouldn ' t have been able to " Express Ourselves. " ' • . . ■ ■ : ;! ' ' ; ' •:.
