On October 12, one week before Homecoming, the student body chose Becky Snow as queen and Bruce Shedd as king to reign with their court over a week of Homecoming activities. On Thursday night, the cheerleaders led the students in a snake dance through town ending at the school with a bonfire. There the queen, king and their court competed in a hot dog eating contest. Winners of the contest were the junior attendant and her escort. Friday, October 19, a parade downtown followed by a pep rally and skit, helped to fire-up the boys for the big game against Hanover-Hor-ton. A jello eating contest, won by Mark Eberts, and a tricycle race, won by Gail Casebeer, proved that there is always room for more spirit! Half time activities at the game included the THS marching band, along with a parade and presentation of class floats and the Homecoming court. The float winning first place was the sophomores with their version of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." The game ended with a defeat for the Indians. Immediately following the game was a semi-formal dance and the formal crowning of the queen and king. (Above) The THS marching band leads the Homecoming parade.

A Night for All On November 9, 1973, Tekonsha Community Schools was the scene of the annual Fall Festival, sponsored by the Tekonsha P.T.O. This event is an opportunity for classes, school organizations, and community organizations to earn money to carry on their activities. It is a night of fun for all participating with a wide variety of booths - everything from food to games, to a country store, and even a jail! 31CONCERTS THS Hosts Concerts THS hosted many special concerts this year, some of which included Reverend Gonzales and the "God Squad," the KCC singers and band, and a classical guitarist. Along with the special concerts, there was the school band and choir who sang and played at the Christmas and Spring Concerts. (Top) THS band plays for the students and faculty at the Spring Concert.

Under the watchful eyes of Coach Paul Sweet, team members of Mr. Roger Maples, Mr. Nick Lopez, Mr. Larry Stout, Mr. Robert Tyckoski, Mr. Roger Maisner, Mr. Steve Schrock, Mr. Keith Clark, and Mr. Robert Wheeler played an excellent game.

Six seniors participated with only three of them returning lettermen. This accounted for a lack of experience on the squad, but with coaches Duane Richardson, Robert Tyckoski, and Keith Clark, the players were molded into a team. Even though the team did not win a game, they were determined and scored in every game except one. The Indians showed a team effort and gave their opponents a fight to the finish each week until the final seconds of the fourth quarter ticked away.

The team had a new coach, Mr. Robert Currie. Coach Currie worked to improve the team in its weak spots and had some success, but the Indians couldn't produce the points. Tekonsha suffered the most from lack of depth, which they didn’t have the previous year. Five returning seniors came back to help the team: Bruce Shedd, Randy Shank, A1 Richar, Tim Brewer, and Don Green. A1 Richar broke a school record by running the two-mile in 10:40.

Junior labors transformed usually drab surroundings into dance sites of charm and beauty. During Homecoming the juniors gave the sophomores and seniors a real stiff bit of competition when they placed third with their float entry. Juniors also got a chance to turn a handy profit during the annual magazine sale in November and through their "ring toss” booth at the Fall Festival.

SOPHOMORES Class of ’76 Takes First Place The class of 1976 started the year off right by capturing first place in float competition at Homecoming. They went on from there to sponsor two popular school dances, the Sadie Hawkins Dance and the Spring Swing. Their efforts were enjoyed by all the high school. Sophomores helped support the class treasury by sponsoring a "jail” at the Fall Festival, and by selling tumblers in December.

The freshmen sponsored moneymaking projects during the year. These included a "softball toss" at the annual Fall Festival and a dance which followed the first home basketball game. The freshman basketball team, with Coach Robert Currie, put in a well-fought season with a total of 7 wins and 6 losses. Part of their successful season is attributed to the spirit displayed by players, fans and cheerleaders. FRESHMAN CLASS ADVISORS: Mrs. Ila Schroll and Mr. Paul Sweet.

AND FACULTY Learning is Fun This year as in previous years the Emma Perrine Elementary School Administration and Faculty has combined learning with having fun. Special programs, such as the Spelling Bee held annually with Homer, are set up to inspire students to learn and still have fun. The library also has a contest in which one book is chosen by each participating class and whichever class has the most students read the book gets to keep the book in their room. The elementary faculty believes that students will be more willing to learn when learning is fun.

These are the ingredients of a successful yearbook. But most important to me is the many, many people who offered their help and advice to make my goal, a top-notch 1974 INDIAN, easier to reach. First, on behalf of the yearbook staff and myself, I would like to extend a special thanks to Mrs. Sally Hammond, our advisor. Producing a yearbook is a mountainous task. Each of us had our own assignments to complete, but without an advisor like Mrs. Hammond to guide us along the way, we would have been unable to reach our goal. Her patience, endurance and guidance filled the open gaps left by our inexperience. My thanks to the faculty members and school personnel who tolerated disruptions of school routine so that we could set up and shoot the very best pictures. Also, I would like to thank the subscribers and advertisers for their support in making this yearbook possible, and also to the patrons for making the first Patrons List a success. Last, but surely not least, I extend my gratitude to the following people for their continued support: Dr. Joseph Serra, Dr. Charles Williams, Sutula Studio, and Mr. Jim Thompson of Taylor Publishing Company.
