I Feel that the year has seen continued
mental growth of the student body and the
students have gained wisdom and stature to
help them in the goal of good citizenship
through progress in their education.

Is Needed Everyday
lt isn't easy being an educator, a father,
a counselor, a friend and an administrator
to boys and girls. The balance that must be
considered when beingfirm or givinga little,
demanding support and wanting to be a
friend is sometimes very difficult to find.
It's still a challenge I won't turn away
from at anytime.
Counseling and guidance has existed in the
public school since the inception of such
schools. Creation of the post of Guidance
Director or Director ofCounselingis newer
in most schools. The person so assigned is
charged with responsibility of testing,
counseling, guidance, financial aid for col-
lege bound students and a myriad of as-
sociated duties. Evaluation of how effective
the program is has to be measured by the
successes of the product--our students--
who are what make my iob so satisfying.

Perspective of Life
English is essential for anyone wishing to communicate
successfully. Project English emphasizes reading rather
than grammar skills. With this extended background in
literature, the student broadens his perspective of life
by reading and evaluating other's experiences. Journal-
ism is more of a development of general writing skills
which aren't particularly journalistic.
English students are involved with a lot of reading of
works on a given theme and an in-depth study of some
writers. This includes the reading of epics, novels,
poetry, short stories, vocabulary and writing skills.
A few of the projects students participated in werea
newspaper unit using the Omaha WORLD HERALD and
the making of a model structure of Shakespeare's Globe
Theater. The journalism class read in the "Atlantic
Monthly" and had a school news section in the CHIEF-
A few selected students traveled to Peru to hear Nellie
Yost during the unit on Nebraska literature. The journal-
ists also toured the Chieftain office.

Spanish provides better understanding and
knowledge of other countries For the student.
A foreign language is also required For some
colleges or careers.
At Christmas, Spanish students enjoy a
Christmas party complete with a pinata
and a variety of Foreign dishes.
Students present an original speech to the
class at least once a week in the Speech
class. The types of speeches range from
speeches for special occasions, oral read-
ing interpretations, and deloatesto speeches
which inform, convince, persuade, inspire
Speech students performed at the Veterans'
Day convocation and participated in the
American Legion Contest.

History students are taught to understand
and appreciate man's past experiences, that
is, his mistakes and accomplishments, and
to benefit from them. The knowledge ofthese
things helps students to adiust to the
current social, economic, and governmental
p rob I em s that they will face after grad-
In the social science classes, students were
involved with map making, and the Time
Magazine Education program. For the
Seniors in Government, a current event
notebook, or a term paper was required.
The eighth grade class took a trip to see
Dwight Eisenhower's home, museum, li-
brary, and chapel in Abilene, Kansas.
Math Teaches Us fo Think
Math teaches students to think. The ability
to understand equations and problems may
help the students to solve problems through-
out their entire lives.
The Algebra students manipulate with al-
gebraic terms and methods to solve their
problems. Two and three dimension figures,
or plane and solid Figures are dealt with
in the Geometry and Trigonometry classes.
At Christmas time, all high school math
students were required to either create
or construct something useful For the math
room, make a poster dealing with math, or
study about a famous problem or math-
In the first week of March, the Juniors and
Seniors in math took the Nationallvlath Test
here at Tecumseh.

on graphs and made original geometric
designs as did the eighth grade class.

Science is Learning
For a better understanding of the modern
world and of what's going on and why, two
years of Science are required. Science is a
class to learn to think logically, to judge
on the basis of facts rather than on the
basis of emotion. Science is a class of
learning by doing.
The 9th grade Earth Science classes en-
ioyed the benefit of 25 new books this
year. Biology students kept busy by dissect-
ing various animals, and by studyingmicro-
biology. Physics students did experiments
and then Figured out the formulas For them-
The two science rooms are equipped with a
variety of glassware, materials necessary
for exp e r i m ent s, a centrifuge, vacuum
pumps, anatomy models, and acquariums.

Prod ucii Ve People
Business helps students to meet goals
which will be a challenge to them in
the Future by developing a productive
people. Students are taught to think
from now to Future rather than from day
to day. The variety of business courses
available challenge the student's ability
to find out whether they should go on to
a business vocation.
All freshmen are required to take eco-
nomics which teaches how to live a
more productive lite by making, using
wisely, and saving money.
For practical experience in an office,
Library Science was created. In this
class students develope an appreciation
for library materials. They learn such
things as the processing of books, basic
techniques in producing audio-visual ma-
terials and the ability to handle audio-
The Library Science students made useof
this knowledge by making slide-tape
presentations, flip charts, signs, and

Upperclassmen had fun with the
new members during the annual
Initiation. In the latter part
of September the club attended
the district FHA convention
in Weeping Water, Nebr. Dur-
ing football season the chapter
invited the Nebraska City FHA
girls down for a chili-soup
supper followed by a powder-
puff football game. The out-
come ended up in Tecumseh's
favor. ln February the group
helped collect for the Heart
Fund Drive headed by Nlr.

year with election of officers
and a pot-luck supper given

Kansas City and the K. C, Royals were
the subjects most of the lettermen of
THS talked about all year and making
the needed money was their top con-
cern. The T-Club co-sponsored the
Christmas dance with the Pep Club:
and, although both organizations lost
money on it, the T-Club made up the
loss by sponsoring the annual Fresh-
man-Sophomore Basketball Tourna-
ment. With the profits from thetourna-
ment and from selling at games, the
boys had more than enough money to
finance their two day trip to Kansas
City on April, 18-20, 1969. While down
there the boys went to two major league
baseball games in which the K. C, Boy-
als played. The bright point of the
game for our T-Club was when they
were recognized over the loud speaker
and the T, V. camera showedtheir8yd.
sign which read "Tecumseh Nebraska
T-Club says Hi to NBC and fans".
With the left over money, the T-Club
decided to buy decals for the helmets
for next year's football team.

County Government Day
To teach to students the
and functions of the county
and its officers, theAmer-
icon Legion sponsored the
annual County Government
Day for the Juniors of
The activity was started
by a primary election held
the week before. The week
was filled with campaign
slogans, balloons, buttons,
badges, and signs. The can-
didates were then elected
at the end of the week by
the student body.
The students were then
sent to the county court
house in Tecumseh for this
education all-day event.
Here they visited their
elected offices to 'develop
an understanding of how
our county operates. Each
officer explained what a
common day was in his
office and also what role
he played in the function
of this country.

benefit of the move from the com-

athletes this year was something dif-

and therefore, the first time girls re-

"Indian Summer" set the scene for the 1968 THS Homecoming,
October 18, 1968 with an authentic-looking tepee and Indian
squaw and corn shucks as the feature decorations.
Due to a week of heavy rain, the game previous to the dance
was quite sloppy, but the mud didn't stop the game or the
fans. The Indians fought hard, but the Humboldt Cardinals
pulled through with a 12 to 7 victory over the Indians.
During the halftime the Y-Teens sponsored the coronation.
The tension which had mounted all week was at its peak as
Jeannine Davis and Scott Jones were crowned our 1968
Homecoming King andQueen.The otherKing Candidates, chosen
by the football team, were Bruce Staley, Jim Schmidt, Spencer
Morrissey, and Steve PelIa-i Queen Candidates, selected by
the Senior Class, were Beth Dillaplain, SandraGregory,lVlargy
Sullivan, and Naomi Neemann. The King andQueen were chosen
by a general election of grades 9-12.
Along with the dance and game, we cannot forget the tradtional
Bon F ire Fially, sponsored bythe T-Club andthe Varsity Cheer-
leaders. This, with the annual Snake Dance around the square,
helped form a high spirited ball club and student fans. Fresh-
men took the lead for once in the skits in the afternoon rally.
Jeannine and Scott reigned over their dance on thrones of
straw bales and Indian blankets as music by the "Loved Ones"
assisted in completing the 1968 "Indian Summer" memory.

The Universal Sound Track, a combo

Seniors--Take one last look back before you go your
separate ways, and you will see yourselves lost in the
whirl of school activities--doing your part to make the
school year run smoothly. You were no longer followers,
but leaders--the heads of organizations, the stars in
sports, the best informed, the biggest, the most mature--
Look into a typical classroom. You may see yourself
gazing out the window at a beautiful spring day while a
teacher explains in a monotonous voice the difference
between inflation and deflation or why x equals y. You
may find yourself sitting entranced as he explains why
Hamlet was mad. You had favorite teachers and favorite
subjects. You were given assignments you didn't mind
doing and those which you dreaded.
Although you may not have realized it, your teachers
and your textbooks were preparing you for the adult
world that you now face, after leaving those desolate yet
warm and inspiring classrooms.
Another vital contribution to this final year which has
been unnoticed for your last 13 years is a little ball
which started with your parents, the taxpayers, who elect
a school board. lt ricochets through the school board, to
the administration to the faculty and finally to you, the
BETH DILLAPLAIN-Ways and Means
student. The ball takes the form of your education and
never stops rolling.
Under the efficient and tireless efforts of Scott Jones,
Senior Class President, the class of "69" set out on a
school year of brilliant social activities and hard study,
and enjoyed the distinction of being one of the most
active classes in many years.
The sponsors, lVlr. Blumhorst and lVlr. Beck, working
together with Scott andtheother four officers were always
alert to see that their class was well represented in all
the activities which were undertaken during the year.
These included, Senior Soup Supper, Senior Class Play,
Magazine Sales, Selling at Games, Bake Sales and C ar
This year--Seniors--represents the end of High School,
and the beginning of your future. Plan it wisely. For some,
for most, it is the starting of more years of schooling--
important years. For others, a time to stop and plan your
life, before you realize that it has alreadyplanned itself.
No matter where you go or what you do remember your
high school life and use it as a guideline and memory of
comradeship. Hold it dearly, for its whole baseand make-
up belongs to you because you are--a Senior.

The Senior Sneak Trip to the Gzarks
was one well worth taking. Sponsored
by Mr. and lvlrs. Dyer andlvlr. andlvlrs.
Blumhorst, the 46 Seniors herded into
the chartered bus and settled down
C???J to a long and excitingnight'strip
. . . a trip never to be forgotten.
Leaving on April 25 at 12:01 A.lVl. the
excited Seniors bounded aboard the
Continental Trailways chartered bus.
Their destination--Kalfran Lodge, at
the Lake of the Ozarks in Nlissouri.
Boatrides, dances, tours, swimming,
shopping and entertainment were all
piahned forthem as they approached the
Lodge at 8:00 A,lVl, Friday morning.
Rooms were assigned, clothes unpacked
and off they were for three days of
excitement and adventure. A special
highlight of the trip was the ferry ride
down the lvlissouri River on the "Larry
Don" while dancing to the combo in the
mystic brightness of the crimson and
orange setting sun. Another favorite
attraction was the exploration of"Dog-
patch", a shopping center and amuse-
ment area. All in all, no one can ex-
press all the little things which makea
trip of this sort so meaningful, re-
warding and memory-filled.

For some years, from time totime,
the students at Tecumseh High
School have seen fit to dedicatetheir
yearbook to a person deserving hon-
or. This is NOT a dedication. Dedi-
cation so many times implies good
bye or farewell and we do not intend
this to be either. Pictured on this
page are some scenes from impor-
tant occasions for Nlrs. Boyden.
There are far too many to picture
all. Our thanks to her for making
math students of some of us, for
teaching all of us to become ladies
and gentlemen within our limits, and
for the patience and insistence on
our being able to produce with what-
ever we could. There is no substitute
for excellence ----- and we thank you
now and in the future for teaching
this very important fact to us.Some-
times when friends must part it is
painful ---- but, where true friend-
ship exists the memories and pleas-
ant everydayl associations carry
meaning forever. Mrs. Boyden, you
ARE that kind of friend, and we will
always be grateful that circumstance
placed you in Tecumseh, ratherthan
