THE 1977 INDIAN Rose D. Warwick High School Tekonsha, Michigan •'THEME FROM MAHOGANY (DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO) ' Words by Gerry Goff in Music by Michael Masser Do you know where you're going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to, do you know? Do you get what you’re hoping for? When you look behind you there's no open door. What are you hoping for, do you know? Once we were standing still in time, Chasing the fantasies that filled our minds. And you knew how I loved you but my spirit was free, Laughing at the questions that you once asked of me. Do you know where you're going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to, do you know? Now looking back at all we planned. We let so many dreams just slip through our hands. Why must we wail so long before we see How sad the answers to those questions can be? Do you know where you're going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to, do you know? Copyright 1973 by Screen Gems - EMI Music Inc. and Jobete Music Co.. Inc. Under U.C.C. Copyright 1975 by Screen Gems - EMI Music Inc. and Jobete Music Co., Inc.

David ThoreauSophomores Money Raised for Dances The Sadie Hawkins Dance proved to be the biggest success of the year for the sophomores, featuring "Eastwood Park,” a band from Detroit. To raise money for the dance the sophomores sponsored a pizza party after a girls’ basketball game, a slave day, and the fish walk at the Fall Festival. In April, the sophomores put on a "Spring Rock" in place of the traditional "Spring Swing." "Lady Grace," a five piece band from Kalamazoo provided the music for the evening.

Twelve seniors were lost this year, but THS will be gaining last year's freshmen along with the rest of the football heroes. All in all, the coming season looks very promising.

Before meeting the Yellow Jackets, the Indians triumphed over both the North Adams Rams and the Reading Rangers. This is the first time in 15 years that Tekonsha has beaten North Adams in varsity basketball, and also this was the first time since 1968 that the Tekonsha Indians won a district title. The Indians didn't stop by winning just districts, they went into the regional game at Sturgis beating the Burr Oak Bobcats. They then played for the regional title, but lost out to the Covert Bulldogs. This is the farthest Tekonsha has gone in the regionals in 50 years. The Indians' returning coach after a three year rest, was Larry Stout, who took the Indians to a winning 13-11 season. This is the best record that the Indians have had in a long time. High point man of the season was Joe Lindquist with 341 points, with his brother Bryan not far behind with 325. Joe was also high rebounder with a total of 237, Terry King was next with 182 rebounds. Tim Carlson had the most assists and steals with 75 and 57 respectively. VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM: Jerry Mains. Randy Powell. Terry King. Mark Gipson, Tom White.

David ThoreauHomecoming Twins Reign The festivities of Homecoming started the Friday before with the announcement of Tim Carlson and Sally Carlson as King and Queen. This was the first time in THS history that twins became THS royalty. Throughout the week there were many winners of the Hex days. These included: Monday - Fat Albert Day (sweatshirt and jeans): Tuesday - Dress up your locker and jersey Day; Wednesday - Charlie Brown Day (T-shirt and jeans): Thursday - painter pants with Tekonsha Indian T-shirts; Friday - the traditional Red and White Day. On Friday October 22, the cheerleaders held the annual pep rally with the parade through town that directly followed. The theme of the floats was commercials. The winning float was made by the freshmen. Due to the snow covered football field, the powder puff football game between the junior and senior girls was changed to basketball. Many of the girls found "the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat" throughout the game with the senior girls winning. On that very cold Friday night, the Tekonsha Indians met the Pittsford Wildcats with the Wildcats coming out on top 24-8. The dance afterwards, sponsored by the juniors, had the theme "Homecoming in the Autumn." It was at the dance that King Tim and Queen Sally were crowned.

If you were at this play production, November 15, 1976, you would know the answer. This comedy mystery portrays a mystery writer, Alexander Arlington, who is murdered and goes to heaven. Not knowing who the murderer is, he cannot live peacefully. He returns to earth to find out who it was. And there he finds "who dunnit." (Middle Left) Harry serves drinks to all the guests.

For the first time in THS history, a play was presented with several changes of the set. The well-known comedy play ’’Harvey" by Mary Chase was the goal set for April 23, 1977. Harvey is a six foot rabbit, only seen by Elwood P. Dowd. El wood's sister, Veta, tries to put him in a sanatorium. Harvey is also a "pooka" and protects Elwood to the fullest. This creates many hilarious events which take place all through the play. (Below) Mertyl and Veta have a good time at rehearsal. (Bottom) Kelly realizes that there really is a Harvey. (Middle) Mrs. Chauvenet watches as Elwood talks to Harvey. (Far Right) Wilson reads from the dictionary what a ’‘pooka" is. CAST: (Silting) Katie Tetreault, Darla Casebeer, David Kempton, Harvey?
