RE LECTI ONS ,7 7
A reflection is a moment of time, caught by the
But reflections--like the days of our lives, keep
adding up, passing by and fading into the past
It is possible to capture a reflection so that
when it fades another glimpse revives the
memory and quickens the senses--so that they
may once again experience the idea or object
just as the moment was real or imaginary, so
the reflection reflects the ultimate
expression of our individual and unique
approach to the reality of our life.
School spirit -
a whole composed
of many -
each a part of
- relationships -
Sharing a part of
only a moment

Treading softly on the shadows which our past had
cast, we suddenly found ourselves in
the bright sunlight.
The door we opened was marked "graduation, "
but we did.n't stop to read the fine-
printed subtitle which read
"an exposure to life. "
We have laughed---and cried. At times we
were disappointed. Finding
contentment in Tecumseh's gorgeous
sunsets, we anxiously awaited the
next dawn. For the dawning of each new
day brought new challenges and involvement
which characterized our discovery--a
reflection of real life.

Our classmates help form the most beautiful
Time of our lives
In the days of youth and forgotten memories.
We pause to reflect now---ever so still as
We gaze over the horizon of the unknown.
Ah, reflections of the past and I see. . .you.
You were always there, eager to care,
Someone with whom to share my personal
Triumphs and silent tears.
But, my friend, people grow older as I
Know We must.
We will grow apart and live our separate lives
When I am content to sit and recall our years
In T. H. S.
I will remember you. . . as my friend.
will we ever find
in our discovery.

The in-between time
A special time--
Time for laughter, drive-ins, new loves that come
The bonfires, the parties, the togetherness of the
Junior class. . .
The moneymaking, the meetings, friends,
Yet, all too soon, it draws to an end
Junior year is gone--
Senior year is here--
A time for remembering, reliving, reloving,
A time for yearning the past--
For wanting and wishing. . .
For another junior year!

t FFA STUDENTS STAY
OCCUPIED IN 1977
There was little time to loaf this year, as FFA
chapter members participated in the National FFA
Convention in Kansas City, and during March we
held the annual Tecumseh Fat Stock Show. This
was a preview and warmup for the Pott County Fat
Stock Show only hours later.
Indeed Tecumseh FFA had a fine ear filled
V with adventure and capped off with our enc,arnpment.
Animals occupied the life of most FFA'ers this
year. It seemed like a never-ending chore, feeding
them, grooming them, keeping them healthy for the
various shows. Above left, Merritt Roberts checks his

I return to the past and I see. . .you.
You were always there, eager to care,
Someone with whom to share my personal

You were gifted with the ability to give,
not only to take.
I know your innermost thoughts and feelings
as you know mine. . .
But, my friend, people grow older as I know
We will grow apart and live our separate lives
When I am content to sit and recall your years
in T .H . S .
I will remember you. . .
as my friend.

HIGH ggi- E:
When as a freshman first I came
Into these spacious halls of fame
Great was the awe that filled my mind,
Wept I for the eight grade left behind.
Then came a teacher stern and tall
Saying, "Don 't stand there in the hall --
You should be working at your lessons now. "
Thus I began my great career
In our old High, In our old High
With teachers true and schoolmates dear,
We'll sing three cheers for our dear old high.
-- Chorus ---
Oh, high school days, how dear to me!
So free from care, so full of glee,
Our truthful hearts in song we raise
And troubles leave for future days!
Come to the class rooms now with me
And the results of labor see,
Algebra, Latin, English too
History, Science ever new.
Here we learn to paint or draw
Work with a hammer and a saw
Or cook a dainty meal for you and me --
And if we do not walk just so
Or turn our head, or Wink an eye,
Then to the office we must go
And beg to stay in our dear old High
-- Chorus --
Now to the gym we turn our mind
Where all our athletes brave we find,
Playing a speedy, skillful game
Adding new laurels to our fame.
Here we see boys and girls galore
Throwing at baskets from the floor,
While others choose the diamond or the track
Here come the giants, s'u'ong and tall,
And very spry, so very spry!
With goal and touchdown conquering all --
The football squad or our dear old High!
-- Chorus --

'EASTER PARADE '77'
A large audience almost filled the Tecumseh High
School auditorium this year to view lastest fashions
and creations of various Home Ec classes.
Girls modelled as if they were professionals. Perhaps
the hit of the style show was the many kids, who wore
fashions made by students.
With pride we cut cloth from dozens of patterns,
then turned to thread, buttonholes, hemming and trusty
sewing machines to turn out our masterpieces.
It was fun, educational--and we got some beauti-
ful clothes to wear!

Perhaps the highlight of the year was when we
