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.

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.

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.

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! -2- 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 -- -3- 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!

"The season this year went real good, " said Coach Ed Mekush. "Robert White and jon Murray led the way with the most wins. Robert White, with only two losses, was outstanding. "We are going to try and win the conference tournament next year. jon Murray won first place this year at the tournament in the 157-pound di- vision. Our goal next year: win all "A" and "B" matches, " the coach continued. Perhaps the highlight of the year was when we wrestled Shawnee junior High. Although we lost 35-22, we got some extremely good experience for next year. Taking ,Shawnee's place next ye ar will be Bristow junior High. We're looking toward it! ED MEKUSH jr.

Track is a good sport to keep you in shape for other sports--es- pecially basketball and football-- and we thoroughly enjoyed running, leaping and jumping. Coaches Paul Sternberger, Mike Combs and Bruce Walck worked us out under tough conditions. We hope to win a lot more meets in '78. ,- T L"Y 'it ' - T .

SAVAGETTES WIN MEDALS, RIBBONS Although thin in ranks, Coach Charles Dudley felt his girl thinclads did "quite well" this year. Each freshman girl was a real competitor and will be heard from next year, he feels. Coach Sue Yate's 7th and 8th Grade tracksters were heard from indeed! The 8th Grade girls won 35 ribbons and eight medals. In the 5-Star Conference, Tecumseh's 8th Grade girls won the 2nd place trophy. Coach Yates felt the 7th Graders learned a lot of funda- mentals. They ran in the 5-Star Conference against freshmen--and won 2nd place team trophy! Kristi Young and Bobbie Botkins were standouts. L if M W, .
