The Annual Staff would like to give
special recognition to Mrs. Warwick for
meritorious during the past 32 years in
Tekonsha. She has an understanding of
all the students and is willing to help
them with their lesson, in whatever sub-
ject it may be. Her sense of humor has
taught students to realize that teachers
are human too.

.Yen br C7455 Play
The stage was set for a western dude ranch as
the curtains opened on Friday night, November 20,
to find the seniors performing on the stage for
the last time in their high school career. During
an hour's time the seniors were made to appear as
adults with the use of stage make up,beards, wigs,
and old clothes. The three-act play was filled
with laughter and excitement from start to finish.
The play involved nearly all the guests and hired
help at the ranch in a deal about gold and prop-
erty. As the title suggested, Old Charlie came
along to settle the whole thing. Old Charlie's
appearance on crutches was accidental, but gave
added effect to the part.
Tall and slender Buck Rainey and Pete Williams
were typical cowboys. The highlight of the first
act came as Gail Marshall played up to bashful
Pete just to get some information about a piece of
land. The first act ended as Buck hit Bard Bart-
lett on the jaw for slapping Jane Russell. Rocky
Williams nearly had a baked potato stuffed down
his throat for teasing his brother about Gail.
Allen Mitchell, Bard and Gail got Mr. Nibley to
sign papers for the land, but they were forced to
leave hen Charlie proved them wrong. Jane and
Buck showed a liking for each other as the curtain
closed on the last act.
Between the first and second acts, Marilyn Horn
sang two songs, accompanied at the piano by Anna-
belle Feiler. After the second act, play director
M Strait was resented a gift Then Don Boley

This season was Tekonsha's first experience playing eleven man foot
ball in ten years Due to inadequate lighting facilities, all the
games were played on the opponent's field
Hopes were high with eleven returning lettermen, but the opponent
always seemed to have the advantage Tekonsha's efforts resulted in
broken limbs for some of the boys As the season progressed, the team
showed added improvement The scores of the St Charles and Bellevue
games showed this The game with Bellevue was probably the best game
The Indians were leading by one point all the way, then Bellevue made
another touchdown to win the game

As this annual goes to press, the local Lions Club has undertaken
