Assistant EditorfLeAnn Bassett
This year Tonlca Community High School changed the name
of its school paper to 6'Warrior Countryv because the students
felt that "School Daze" had grown old and a new name was need-
ed. Another change took place when "Warrior Country" was
given a column in the LaSalle "Teen-Trib". Thus paper staff was
kept busy typing up "Warriro Country" and writing for the
"Teen-Trib". The paper staff has completed another successful
year, and should be proud of a iob well-done.

LEARNING SEASON FOR THE BASEBALL WARRIORS
The 1969 Warriors were young and for the most part, inexperienced. Playing against our
tough Tri-County opponents, we got alot of valuable game experience which will help for
next year. Learning the basics as well as the more difficult parts of the game made 1969 a
building year. We weren't tops, but we practiced hard and learned alot while having fun.
Next year che Warriors should be serious contenders in the Tri-County.
It's a hit!!!

It isn't easy to put together a yearbook. It takes a staff
Willing to design the book, It takes an advisor willing to sac-
rifice his time for the book. It takes a publisher willing to
print the book,
But just as important as all these, it takes money to fin-
ance the book. On the succeeding pages are listed the busi-
ness firms and generous people who have shown their sup-
port for Tonica High School.

Success is felt by these relieved Juniors.
On May 10,1970 at 8:00, some of the Juniors and
Seniors entered a world of their own when they walked
into the Tahitian Twilight.
The decoration consisted of a Teki and a beautiful
pond sumised of delicate flowers and stones.
George Nichols and his orchestra entertained everyone
with his romantic music until 11:00.
