The Seniors Are N0 Longer To Be Ledf
BOB GREGORY , President
Memories are golden . . . Life at
Tecumseh High was not composed onlylof
studies and extracurricular activities, t ere
were certain intangible ingredients that can
be defined only by a senior at THS, As
we glance bac through the pages of time
we remember the final year of our high
school life--the first day of the 1967-
68 school year, the time and effort spent
on learning, the mad scramble before
the anticipated win in football or basket-
ball, the "sneak trip", the hushed re-
verence during the singing of the "Alma
Mater" as we took our last walk in the
With one cycle of education and life
complete, seniors at THS have learned
responsibility and self-dependence. Lives
of the seniors were molded by many
hands--the hands of teachers, the hands
of administrators, the hands of parents.
From the time the seniors ,graduate
most are on their own, Some seniors may
leave home--they're college bound.
Others may descend on the business
world. No matter what the choice may
be,the seniors' future lives are a direct
result of their days at THS and the
knowledge gained there.

CARLA GIBSON , Secretary
Having always looked forward to
being Seniors, the class of '68 had its
dream come true September 5th, the
first day of the 1967-68 school ear,
Numerous class meetin s where
held, where, under the leagership of
able class officers, many important
decisions were made.
The Senior Class of '68 selected
yellow and white as class colors.
Complementing these colors was the
class flower, the yellow rose. The
class motto, "A journey of a thousand
miles begins with one step," charac-
terized t e tmified Luiderstanding that
graduation was the first "step" into
a world of work and wonder.
The rewarding event for twelve
years of school li e was the Senior
"sneak trip" to the Ozarks. Reali-
ziig that approximately two thousand
do ars was needed to take the class
on their three-da vac ation together,
the final year of high school was
Filled wit ftuid -raising activities.
Class dues, magazine sales, a soup
supper, and the Senior Class la
contributed considerably to tflfe tyund.
Four years of high school life
paid off May 24, 1968, as fifty-

66Homecoming Royalt "
The setting of the annual homecoming was traditionally rainy. The five queen
candidates found themselves slushing their way to their "mud-covered" escorts
awaiting them at the center of the field. Cheryl Davis and Russ Eltiste relinquished
their crowns to the newly elected queen and king, Barb Lempke and Mike Phillips.
The hard work put into preparing the activities was not at all hampered by the de-
pressing weather. Our determined team pulled through with a decisive victory over
Johnson with the final score being 26-12.
"Congratulations, King Mike! " You can close your mouth now Barb. lt's true.

Anderson and Coach Stokes, raised money this
year by selling at a basketball game and spon-

trip to Kansas City this year, they planned to
donate their funds to the athletic department in
hopes that some new equipment will be bought
for the department's use in future years.

The key club, led by Mr. Matschullat, had
a very successful year. They raised money by
having a box social dinner, which proved to be
successful, as many of the dinners brought a
good price. They were also able to sell fruit
cakes. Along with other activities the key club
was able to raise enough money with which to
pay for the marquee. This was placed in front
of the schoolhouse and is an object of great
pride for the THS students and faculty.
