Due to the loss of eight seniors from the 1962-63
squad, the baseball team suffered a losing season of
four wins and seven losses and tied for seventh place
in the Tri-County Conference standings. One bright
spot, however, was the new strikeout record of fif-
teen set by George Skweres. With eight regulars re-
turning, next year's prospects seem bright.

Hello! everyone. It is now 9:00 P. M. and we are ready for that famous quiz program, "The 3564, OOO Question. "
Back for his fourth week is Steve Kadelak. We have reserved seats for Steve's fellow graduates of the Class of '64,
Let's see how many of your classmates came tonight, Steve. In the front row is Curtis Ryan and his cute Qztle
family. Curt took up playing drums, and presently plays with that famous band, "The Cool Cats" who are now
booked at The Circus Lounge. Next to him is that multimillionaire himself, Dan Obermiller. Back in '64, Dan
struck oil while drilling postholes. At his studio, "Hey Chik, We Clik It Quik," he will take your picture for a
reasonable price. Bob Johnson, has finally married. His cute little boy is sitting next to him. After Bob graduated,
he attended the U. of I. and was chosen their most valuable basketball player. Here comes our celebrity, Shirley
Barr. After the Senior play, a talent scout in the audience, signed Shirley up with M-G-M for a lifetime contract.
Shirley's escort is James Daren, one of her many admirers. In the third row is the former Jane Schmitt and her fam-
ily, who are happily living on a boat. Teek helps her husband support the family, so lhear. Their interests seem
to be somewhat alike, one drags the boat, and the other Iudd's 326.
Down the aisle sits Prof. Dewayne Beavers who attended I. S. U. He teaches Physical Education and Home Eco-
nomics at Tonica, and likes it just fine. And, so do the girls! In one of our S75 seats is Kathy Ploch, who after
hours of practicing Steno, became secretary to Richard Chamberlin. Her intensive study of Shorthand proved very
helpful, as she now takes dictation at 10 wam. Sheri Calkins married a local boy, and took up motorcycle racing as
her new pastime. They have a special motorcycle built for two, equipped with a trailer for three! Across the aisle
from Sheri is her cousin, Karon Calkins, who lives on a 10, OOO acre ranch in Texas, with 17 beautiful children.
Rounding them up each night is her biggest problem. What is coming? It looks like a whole line of hula dancers.
Whoops! Someone fell. Why it's that Rock-a-Hula, Ioanie QSchmittJ. She certainly is good, because she got right
back up and is swinging again.
Here comes Gary Scott selling hamburgers. He runs Gary's Super-Duper Hamburger House, and his specialty is
radioactive hamburgers guaranteed to cure all ails. Someone must be in trouble because there goes a police car.
Yep! But the policeman turned out to be Marcy Hawley. She always did like to chase the boys. There's a familiar
face. It's Madaleine Frangenberg, the champion woman's wrestler. Although she has a black eye, it doesn't seem
to bother her. That girl singing softly in front of Madaleine is Alice Swift. She still loves to sing and now sings to
her triplets. Taking a picture of Alice's family is that famous newspaper reporter, Joe Bernardoni. They call him
on-the-spot Joe, as he always gets his story, even if it is three or four weeks old. In the middle section is Patty
Arkels, New York's top hat designer. Her latest style, which she is modeling, is a bushel basket. Behind her is Larry
Schaibley, who became a full fledged bum! He is very proud of this fact as he had to wait until his suit became
holy before he became a legitimate bum. I wonder if Patty's latest creation is bothering him?
Across the aisle is Carol Duff, present Kentucky Derby winner, with her two foot high pony. I guess Carol never
graduated from her hobby horse. In the front row is Diane Foote, Tonica's new Mayor, who completed 12 years of
schooling to be qualified for her present job. In the front row is Kathy Mareta, jet pilot for T. W. A. , who plans on
honeyrnooning on Romance Island qnot on mapj with her only passenger Bill Gingerich. Some girls have all the
luck! X ! ! Two of our classmates aren't present. Linda Mortenson is on a long truck route. She keeps driving around
the block trying to set a record. Mary Smith is so busy she couldn't find a night off. incidentally, if you dig up any
business for Mary, she would appreciate it. She says business has been rather dead, but she does do her grave digging
cheaply! ! Is that a sign being held up, saying "Cherry-Picking Done Reasonable!" Why it's Steve Zellmer. I didn't
believe him when he told me his aptitude was just for a Cherry Picker.
Now that the Class of '64 is accounted for, the program will go on. Are you ready, Steve? Now, for the 364, OOO
question, who was the movie actor for which the Rock Hudson fan club was formed?

"Boys P. E. "
Students at Tonica High School have the opportun-
ity to choose from a varied curriculum. This is a great
aid to a student in preparing for his future.
A complete business course is offered, beginning
with Typing I, in the Sophomore year, and continuing
through bookkeeping, Steno, I 85 II, and office practice.
General Physical Science and biology are the only
required science courses. Tonica, however, offers the
more advanced courses of chemistry and physics to its
Tonica also offers its students a four-year course in
math. Freshmen begin with Algebra Ig the Sophomore
has geometry, the Junior may take Algebra Ilg and if he
still wishes to take a math course his senior year, the
student is offered "advanced math. "
AT T.C. .S.
Being a farming community many Tonica boys take
advantage of the agricultural courses offered. Home
economics course s are equally well-received by the
T. C. H. S. students are also offered four years of
English, a driver training course, two history courses,
and music, both instrumental and choral.
Physical education is important to a healthy mind.
For this reason all stud ent s are required to take P. E.
Tonica students should be proud of their school
ggtgg teachers, as well as themselves.
"Girls P. E. "
"General Physical Science
A good Band is a valuable asset to any school. It is a worthwhile organization which demands skill, coordination,
and cooperation from its members.
T.C.H. S. students can be justly proud of the band. The band journeyed to Champaign and participated in the
first University of Illinois Band Day and also performed at the annual Christmas Parade in Peoria. The pep band also
performed at the basketball games.
Equipment managers, Dan Maack and Larry Still-
well, keep band room neat.

Dexter Smith, wise in math, baseball, and gas station operations, is not wise about women. Spring hits him,
Socko! He finds himself engaged to Marcella Payne and gives up hope of going to college to get married as soon as
he turns eighteen.
Mother says, '1Nonsense, " but Dad says, "O.K., but for a weekend, I want you to take charge of things here
while Mother and I take a vacation. " When we come back, we'll talk about your plans for marriage.
Dutch Kelly, the more irresistable of his adventuresome co-eds is stuck with a varsity show. She finds Deck's
love poems, and finds music to fit them. More important, she finds Dexter, but she finds him in a matrimonial trap
that is about to spring.
Does it spring? Does Butch know how to handle naive, good looking chaps like Deck? Does Deck choose college
Finding the answers to this was an evening full of fun.

"Moment of excitement"
The setting of this play takes place in an Oklahoma farm kitchen. Gladys May and her Uncle Merridew are
summer boarders who are trying to outsmart Mrs. Berry into selling her oil-laden farm for a very measly sum, Much
fun and laughter is the result of Sis Riggs and her tomboy antics against Gladys May and her Uncle. Aaron Slick,
who everyone thinks is a dunce, outwits the summer boarders. He meets his wits end when all of his proposals to
Mrs. Berry are interrupted. It finally ends when Aaron, in Chicago, is just about outwitted by a "mysterious girl in
red," and when Mt. Merridew is finally brought to the 1aw's attention. By the way, was there really oil on Mrs.
Berry's farm, or did Aaron Slick have a hand in this dealg and also did Aaron get Mrs. Berry? This hilarious play was
enjoyed by all.
"Practice break" "A third party in the proposal"
The highlight of the school year, the Junior-
Senior Prom, was held May 4, 1963. Preceding the
dance, the Juniors treated the Seniors to a delicious
banquet in the dining room ofthe Kaskaskia Hotel.
Following the theme "Blue Hawaii, " the gymnasium
was decorated with palm trees, grass huts, and hula
girls. The dance floor was encircled by various col-
ored crepe-paper ribbons. Dancing was to music
furnished by "The Stylists. "

DANCE THRGUGH AN ENJOYABLE YEAR
"The Bleacher Bunch! "
Students at T. C. H. S. danced through an enjoyable
year. The "Back to School Dance," sponsored by the
Seniors, opened the 1963-64 school year. In November
the girls took over with a Sadie Hawkins Dance. Her-
alding the coming of Christmas vacation, the Snowflake
Ball was greatly enjoyed. Students broke out of the
gloom of semester exams and closed their basketball
season at the homecoming dance. After this, all
attention turned to thoughts of the I r. -Sr. Prom and the
closing of a successful year.
