Xdministrator F oresees Bright Future for Tomah High
All of us: Students, faculty, and electors are looking for-
ward to the anticipated opening of the doors of the new
Senior High School which is in the process of construction.
This school plays an important part in the total building
program of the Tomah District. It is being built to alleviate
crowded conditions in the present school. Through its con-
struction, basic changes can take place in the re-organiza-
tion of the elementary units by providing the present fa-
cilities for a junior High School program.
We know that the new school must house and serve the
varied educational programs that young people will need
to face the problems they will meet in the future. Not only
must this building be adapted for today's students, it must
be flexible and modern enough to meet the technological
advances and changes thirty years hence.
Your new school has five educational areas: the academic
area with a large library, an art, homeniaking, and business
education area, three physical education stations with ad-
jacent locker and dressing rooms 3 a large modern kitchen
with adequate lunch room spaceg a large auditorium ad-
jacent to a suite of music rooms and an industrial arts
area with three well-planned shops. In addition you will
find an administrative suite including guidance and health
Space does not permit one to tell specifically how this build-
ing will enhance new opportunities for your fellow students.
Changes due to modern technology are constantly changing
our society and will continue to do so. Modern techniques,
new educational offerings both in materials and methods
of teaching must be developed and put into practice in this
new school. It is necessary that this building be Hexible and
large enough to meet the common needs of the total stu-
dent body as well as to meet the special needs and interests
of individual students. Every student must be challenged to
reach his fullest capacity and it is hoped that this building
will provide the work space necessary for students and teach-
ers to do their best.
Wfe want to congratulate the Hainot Staff and the Seniors
of 1966 for their interest in this new building, especially
when you know that you will not be attending this school.
You have a right to be proud of the fact that you have
attended the Tomah High School. Buildings alone do not
guarantee an education for students to improve themselves.
They only provide the opportunity for you to improve your-
self through the help of your teachers, parents, and friends.

while a staircase led to the floor. Tablecloths of bright, gay
colors were topped with clowns in red, yellow, blue, and

ever received the yellow rose was to be king of the 1965

forward, and rightfully so, to a winning season.
After losing three out of eight duos to Sparta and Black

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
Sound Bodies Produced Mature Minds
The G.A.A. was one of the largest organizations at Tomah
High School this year. Its purpose was, as in past years, to
endeavor to keep its members physically and mentally
fit through various activities. Beginning in the fall, the girls
participated in tumbling and continued throughout the
year with bowling, basketball, volleyball, tennis, softball,
and track and field.
Under the direction of Miss Margie Lund, girls' physical
education instructor, the members divided into teams and
chose captains for each of the different program phases.
By taking part in such a program, the girls were given a
better opportunity to learn responsibility and sportsman-
A unique feature of this club is that it is entirely self-suf-
ficient. Since it has a large membership and few expenses, it
is able to depend completely on the money which is col-
lected for dues.

FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA
Members Probe Teaching
Leaming the qualities of a good teacher is only a minute
part of the functions of FTA. This organization also per-
forms a worthwhile service to the faculty members of
Tomah High. Each FTA member is required to help one
teacher with his work throughout the school year. This
outside help is advantageous not only for receiving an
award pin, but also serves as useful experience.
Besides this extra help members observed teaching methods
at the Miller elementary school, and decorated a fioat for
the Homecoming parade.
Throughout the year FTA members learned the inside story
of the teaching profession and endeavored to learn and meet
the standards of a successful teacher.

FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
Members Attained Competence
The Tomah Future Farmers' chapter was organized after
the beginning' of the 1965-66 school year. The club's mem-
bership was made up of agricultural students.
The purposes of the club are many which include: develop-
ing competent, aggressive and rural agricultural leadership,
strengthening the confidence of the farm youth in himself
and in his work, creating more interest in intelligent farm-
ing practices, creating and nurturing a love of country life,
and advancing the cause of vocational education in agri-
culture in the schools of the United States.
To encourage ambitions toward these goals, certain awards
are offered to members each year. These include: Green
Hand awards, Chapter Farmer awards, State Farmer
awards, and the American Farmer degrees.

CHarvey' Delighted Audiences
A brother who claimed he had a giant rabbit named Har-
vey and a sister who refuted this fact comprised the humor-
ous plot of the senior class play.
The sister, who tried to have her brother committed to a
sanitarium was, however, committed instead.
The story ended on a happy note as the sister accepted Har-
vey as one of her family.
Mr. Wilmer Pearson directed the three-act comedy with

Journalism is mainly concerned with improving the writ-

The yearbook, the Hamot, was another project of the

and poems written by the students of TI-IS, was published
twice during the year. A student directory was also pub-
lished by the students in second-year journalism.
School dances, carnivals, and hootenannies were spon-

They Captured the Memories
of a Grand Year
Embarking upon a different learning experience, the staff
of the HAMOT 1966 broke the ties of tradition by present-
ing a new look to T.H.S. annuals. It was larger than ever
before-both by the number of pages and the new dimen-
sions. Within the walls of the "Pub', many hours were
spent meeting the four deadlines.
Preliminary plans were begun in April of 1965 when the
staff was selected from the Journalism class by Miss Eck,
adviser. Throughout the year, Harold Libke of Harold's
Studio was kept busy photographing life around the school.
In the summer months, several members of the staff soli-
cited advertising from area merchants in order to supple-
ment the money which was to be collected in the fall sub-
cription drive, A total of 900 subscriptions were sold at
S4-.50 a copy.
The staff is proud of their accomplishment and hopes it
will provide both themselves and their classmates with a key
to the memory of their high school career.
Section editors Carol Gray, Kay Rudkin, Barb Bubnich, editor, strived to achieve coherence among the sections,
and Beth Kozarek, with the aid of Edna Myer, lay-out while developing the theme of the 1966 Hamot.
Business manager Jerry Crandall handled the financial as-
pects of the 1966 HAMOT. Assisting him in the subscrip-
tion drive were Chris Zahrte, Sandy Wood, and Diane
Photography Co-ordinator Marti Mogensen supervised as Har-
old Libke, of Harold's Studio, captured Tomah High in pic-
tures. She arranged picture schedules, sorted proofs, and over-
saw picture-taking sessions.

Experience Gverpowered Seniors

senior boys not participating in interscholastic basketball was
held on February l. The senior coaches Rob Mubarak
and Bob Ducklow were, however, unable to spark the sen-

The senior girls and a few faculty members cheered their
respective teams on to hopeful victory.

In October we were proud to have Nani Alapai elected
to be on Homecoming Court from the freshmen class.
The annual winter formal, Snoball, saw Hal Handy repre-

The class, in the year past, knowing its potential, put a
great effort forth to, of course, be the best freshmen class

Graduates Reflect Memories Made Upon the Hill
We were frightened, small individuals in September of 1962.
Somewhere through the growing-up process we opened our
sleepy eyes to peer out into the world.
As the haze began to clear, we saw a freshman Homecoming
Hoat as a unifying project.
As sophomores we grew a little more and became more confident.
"Mardi Gras", our Junior Prom, was perhaps our best achieve-
ment for we learned we could work together as one united
Our last and final year helped to establish our reputation even
further for our schedule was a busy and active one. Many mem-
bers of the senior class were prominent figures in school life.
The class play produced some acting talent, some work, and
From shy, insecure freshmen we have progressed into confident,
assured seniors somewhere on the threshold of maturity. Looking
back, we know that our four years have been hard and trying at
times, but we also know that they were worthwhile.
Now fully seeing the world in its entirety, we, the class of nine-
teen hundred and sixty-six, say good-bye to the school on the
hill, as we walk down the hall for the last time.
In November, the Class of 1966 presented the comedy,
"Harvey", which was a financial as well as an enjoyable
success. Pat Seflow, Carol Larsen, Anne Reardon, and Greg
LaFond express concern over Harvey, the invisible rabbit.
