Another busy year followed the Syracuse Band.
The band made trips to the King Korn Karnival,
the Plattsmouth Marching Contest, State Marching
Contest, and the State Fair. Concert band played
courtesy concerts at Nebraska City and Auburn.
This replaced the AkSarBen Conference Clinic
that had been held in previous years.
Music was heard floating through the halls
early in the morning and several nights after school
as the various ensembles rehearsed. Early sessions
found the Trumpet Trio, Woodwind Quintet, and
Brass Sextet hard at work while the Sax Quartet
and Clarinet Choir produced the late sounds.
A highlight of the year was the 15th Annual
Mid-Winter Concert presented February 2 in the
Senior High Auditorium, Songs ranged from "The
Sounds of the Tijuana Brass" to "Symphony in B
flat." A special feature on the program was a
trumpet solo by Phil McCallum.
A new project of the band this year was to
raise money for new uniforms. A candy sale was
staged and proceeds from the Mid-Winter Concert
and May Dance went into the uniform fund.

FTA sponsor, Mrs. Marlene Orton, enjoys refreshments
at a meeting.
A more elaborate program was set up for
this year's Future Teachers of America. Along
with films on new developments in teaching,
the members took a "field trip" to Lincoln
and visited some of the schools. Also they
put their future plans into practice. The mem-
bers took over some of the classes at the
Junior High and Senior High Schools.
The members elected Deanna Lamb,
Presidentg Darline Wilken, Vice-Presidentg
Susan Morrissey, Secretaryg Howard Isaacs,
Treasurerg and Marylyn Kraenow, Historian.
Mrs. Orton served as faculty sponsor.
The main event of the year for the FTA
was the St. Patrick's Day Carnival, which was
sponsored by the FTA and "Countdown" staffs.
"Exit and the Wayouts" played at the
carnival dance where Dan Crownover and
Marylyn Kraenow were crowned King and
Queen of the Leprachauns.

An ambitious newspaper staff and advisor,
Mrs. Orton, worked vigorously to gather ten
pages of news, features and editorials so that
the "Countdown" could once again come out
every three weeks this year.
The number of sales grew as the paper
improved. Staff members temporarily took
care of one handicap, no camera, by drawing
cartoons to fit the articles and occasions.
At the beginning of the year, the
"Countdown" staff attended the Journalism
Clinic at the Nebraska Center for Continuing
Education in Lincoln sponsored by the Nebraska
High School Press Association. The day was
spent attending classes dealing with editorials,
features, headlines, and news articles.
In the later part of the year in conjunction
with the FTA, the newspaper staff helped to
sponsor a St. Patrick's Day Carnival and
dance. A large crowd, approximately 275

"Launched with a bang" is the only
way to describe the 1966-67 school year at
Syracuse High. The typical "first day of
school" confusion prevailed as disappointed
students mobbed the office to have schedules
rearranged and courses changed. After a few
days, everyone settled down to thirty-six
weeks of normal, event-filled, school life.
SHS Sophomores started the year with
a Surfer's Dance, to acquaint themselves
with their upperclassmen. Then came the
time to pick class rings--a day every
Sophomore eagerly awaits.
The Junior class returned to heavier
books and hardercourses. With rings on
their fingers, the Juniors climaxed their
year by presenting an unforgettable Prom.
The annual magazine sales campaign and
several other events expanded the Junior
treasury for future Sneak Day plans.
This pace continued throughout the
school year. Dances, contests, meetings , and
games filled up the days--and nightsfand
rounded off a year of increased knowledge
Although it's only natural that each
student believes his class is best, all stu-
dents agree that each class is an important

by holding a "Surfer's Dance" for their
upper classmen at the Senior High School,

It was September, 1963. Dozens of
confused, young freshmen entered Syracuse
High School, wandering aimlessly through
the halls. After a few weeks, the freshman
of 1963 became involved in homework,
extra-curricular activities, and a feeling
of class pride. They had just begun to
realize that they had a lot of living to do
throughout the next four years.
Finally they were sophomores--no
longer the underclassmen. And then juniors-
-time to pick class rings, and moving into
the new Sr. High building.
Then the class shifted into "high" as
it became the Senior class of 1967. It was
an event-filled year as Seniors made all-
important decisions on graduation an-
nouncements, caps and gowns, class
colors, flower, and motto. Every Senior
eagerly participated in making plans for
their Sneak Trip to the Ozarks.
Time and effort provided the Senior
class with competition, spurring them on to
the final processional to receive their
diplomas. It is the hope of Seniors that they
have contributed what they should have to

The SHS Senior spent a considerable
amount of his time planning and partici-
pating in the various fund-raising events,
in an effort to earn finances for the annual
Sneak trip to the Ozarks,
One of the first "Senior sponsored"
events was the Christmas Ball. This dance,
in which mistletoe prevailed, helped pro-
mote Christmas spirit among the under-
classmen as well as Seniors,
Another money-making project for the
Senior treasury and the new athletic field
was an attempt by the faculty to defeat
Seniors in a basketball game. A large
crowd viewed the escapades of the "teach-

Seniors from many Nebraska cities
congregated on the University of Nebraska
campus, October 22 for the annual Senior
Information Day. After aquick welcome,the
students found themselves traipsing around
the campus in search of various classes.
The afternoon was spent visiting the special-
ized colleges. These day-long sessions were
held four times throughout the year to better
acquaint Seniors with college life.
The Seniors have quickly passed their
last busy, fun-filled year at SHS. For
some, graduation only marks the real
beginning of a long road ahead, filled with
more study and learning. For others, it is
the end of their studies, as they prepare
to begin a career of their own. All look
back on their high school days with fond
memories but they also look ahead to the
fulfillment of long-planned dreams. All are
reminded and left to ponder over their class

Viewed throughout the pages of the "67
Rocket are glances of the social activities
ich made u the
of the year--glances wh p
memories of the Seniors of 1967.
As the Senior takes a backward gaze
of his final year, he is reminded of the
social events which made up his world.
A look at the autumn months brings about
memories of registration, football games,
and Homecoming. As autumn is replaced
by winter, the Senior relives memories of
sleigh rides, Christmas parties and dances,
and semester exams. Soon winter is turned
into spring, and amid the flurry of Prom
and graduation activities, the Senior finishes
his career of study at Syracuse High School.
As the year ends, Seniors glimpse forward
to a new and different world of the future,
taking with them memories of a school
sorrow, joy, laughter friendships
social activities a searchfor knowledge--
glimpses which have been preserved in
these past pages of the '67 Rocket.
