Vandalism Meeting l-leld By Liz Fichera Creating student, parent and staff awareness of the vandalism problem and discovering positive solutions to vandalism are the two main goals of the Maine South Vandalism Committee. The committee consists of nine adults and five students: Mr. Robert Simonson, assistant principal; Mr. and Mrs. William DeCicco, P.T.C.; Mr. Bernard Brady, athletic director; Ms. Virginia Feurer, counselor; Mr. John Heuman, teacher; Mr. Melvin Mensching, head custodian; Mr. John Minerick, safety director; Mr. Elbert Smith, dean of students; Pete Omarzu, Student Council president; Dan Ryan, Junior; Beth steffen, Senior; Karen Maiorano, Southwords; and Laz Fichera, Southwords. At the committee's first meeting on Nov. 1, Pete Omarzu suggested a Saturday Work Program in place of restitution. Students would be able to earn the money to pay for their damages by doing odd jobs at school on Saturdays. Pete explained that this program has been experimented with in California schools and found successful. Could this program be a deterrent to vandals as well as an incentive to students who accidentally break something and are not able to afford payment right away? Although several serious vandalism cases have been brought to court, the

administration prefers to deal with the vandals rather than resort to the courts. Restitution, suspension and parent involvement often represent more action than prosecution would involve. "Students appear to be more concerned with personal theft rather than damage done to school property," said Ms. Feurer. Ms. Feurer is trying to organize a Values Analysis Clinic for students willing to attend, as well as developing different counseling approaches. Problems in the cafeteria were also discussed. Pete Omarzu announced that Student Council will propose another Student Cafeteria Monitor Program. Six students, including one captain, and two faculty members would form a team. Only sophomores, juniors and seniors could participate and only juniors and

Senior Wins Scholarsliip David Greising has won the Century III Leaders Scholarship competition at Maine South, according to Dr. Clyde K. Watson, school principal. David is now eligible to compete with other high school seniors throughout Illinois for one of two $1000 scholarships and also for a $10,000 national scholarship that will be awarded at a conference of state winners in Williamsbui^, Virginia. David triumphed in the local phase of the Century III Leaders Scholarship Program, a national futures studies, writing, citizenship, and current events awareness competition. To do this, he scored highest at the school in a current events examination and in the writing of a brief essay on America's needs and challenges for the future. The program is administered by the National Association of Secondary Sdiool Principals and

seniors could be captains. Rewards for cafeteria duty would be honor hall passes and possibly sophomore lounge. Mr. Simonson also reported that he is trying to get a fund for vandalism approved. This fund of $3300 could be used for student purposes if not used up by vandalism costs. Student Council will sponsor a poster contest in February in order to campaign against vandalism. Rewards for best poster will be offered, and the winning poster will be printed up by the Industrial Education Department and displayed throughout the school. The administration wishes to point out the difference between vandalism and accidentally breaking Maine South property. No punishment is involved in the case of an accident.

The two Illinois winners will receive an all-expense-paid trip to the third annual Century III National Leadership Seminar in Williamsburg from Feb. 24-27 to participate in seminars on current issues.

Advice and literature from 330 schools from 44 states and three foreign countries, including France, Mexico and Switzerland, will be available. A special feature of the Fair is the Individual Counseling and Career Information Center, where visitors can sit down and talk with a counselor on a one-toone, basis. These professionals, who volunteer their time, will answer specific questions on college planning. Financial aid and admissions testing information are also available in this area. The Fair is open to the pubhc, and there is no charge for admission or for any of the educational services provided.

Dance Sponsored by Sue Rebedeau The Snow ball, a winter dance, sponsored by the Senior Class, will be held on Dec. 10 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Casual dress suggested. This means a short dress for girls and a suit for guys. The cost is $4 per couple, and the dance is dutch treat. The Snowball is girls' or guys' choice. David Greising, president of the Senior Class, believes that "The Snowball should be successful because of the four month span during which there are no dances. Because the dance is close to Christmas we've tried to hold down the cost as much as possible, and we believe that some of our new, innovated ideas should make the Snowball lots of fun." Ann Fritz, vice-president of the Senor Class feels that the

S.C. Makes Proposals by Karen Maiorano Three committees have been set up in Student Council to make proposals concerning a student minitors program, an alternative lunch program, and the lunch lines in the cafeteria. The student minitors program will be designed for students to take the place of faculty minitors. There will be one or two faculty members each period and lounge period; however, the rest of the monitors will be

Snowball will be a big success because everytxxly will be in the Christmas spirit." It will be an inexpensive dance. It should be a really great time." Dave Ryan '78, stated, "The Snowball idea has been thrown around for a while now, and I think that if people keep an open mind about the dance, it should be a goodie." Jim McGlade '80 said, "Since I spent most of my millions of dollars on Homecoming, it will give me a chance to go to McD's afterwards. Anyway I feel the dance is a great idea, and hopefully it will go over big." Many believe that Snowball will be a success and will promote not only the Christmas spirit but also school spirit. So ask a date now to the Snowball.

"Die alternative lunch program is intended to stop students from messing the cafeteria. Students seen messing the cafeteria the second or third time will be removed from the cafeteria. The students will then be sent into a room similar to a detention hall to eat lunch. This program has also been suggested by teachers. The third committee has been formed in protest to the lunch lines. The committee is trying to get all six lunch lines open every day in order for students to get served quickly. The committee is also trying to keep the lunch lines and snack bar from closing too early. At times the snack bar has closed too early during lounge, and the committee hopes to settle this problem also. Pete Omarzu, Student Council president, said, "The conditions of the cafeteria have vastly improved, and the lunch lines need to be open longer."

College Questions? An informational hot line, sponsored by the Illinois Association of College Admissions Counselors, will be available to students on Nov. 25 and 26 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. during the IHSA football play-off telecasts. Students who have questions about college selection, admissions, testing, and financial aid may have their questions answered by calling the hot line. Calls will be answered by high school counselors, college admissions personnel, college financial aid personnel and representatives from ACT, SAT and the Illinois State Scholarship Commission. The toll-free number is 800-942-4622.

Opportunities Overlooiced By John Peters, Commentary Editor How many times have you heard someone say, "Maine South s..."? For some students, this statement renders affirmative agreement; for others, negative dissent; while still others, no response whatsoever. Regardless, a person who makes such a statement is either exhibiting ignorance to, feeling betrayed by, or despising his own failures in the opportunities available to him at Maine South. Sure, anyone can find at least one aspect wrong with almost anj^thing. However, compared to a national consensus, the average American high school just cannot compare with Maine South. (We were rated as number one in the nation a few years back, remember that?) The level of academic training here at South, as well as the abundance and the quality of the extracurricular and athletic activities are quite superior. However, brought to one on a silver platter these opjwrtunities to excel are not; one has to work at them. History has shown, for the most part, that effort, not talent, is the main key to success; that the individual makes his own breaks. If a student does not attempt to exert this effort and believes success in opportunities to be easily attainable ar arm's length, he will most likely be inclined to repeat the above statement due to his failures concerning these opportunities. Some of us here at Maine South just don't know how lucky we are. Next time someone says, "Maine South s...", he should reflect upon what a great education he could get in Chicago somewhere, or what great ways he could develop his athletic talents and special interests in a Rockford high school, where many athletic and extracurricular activities have

been cut out. Yet, alas, someone may contrive a statement such as "I don't need all that effort and activities — I just want to do my four years and get out." However, where will Uiisp person find himself in later life without knowledge, leadership quality.

and moral stability? If however, this person's main ambition in life is to be a total bum, Maine South does, certainly for him, "s...". Otherwise, a Maine South student taking such a lethal cut at such a fine institution would be the same as a rose counting its thorns.

Letter Denounces Clique To Those Whom This Concerns: Homecoming—a time for everyone to get involved. Let's hear it for school spirit! !!Rah. Rah. Now that corsages have withered and the foottiall players have hung up their jerseys for another year, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could extend the concept of school spirit to include more that an annual football game? For as soon as Homecoming is over, school becomes once more a cold place to be even on the warmest d a y s just cold and plastic. For one reason—CLIQUES... Call them what you l i k e cheerleaders, Hawkettes, jocks, brains, burnouts, class officers, thespians, Choir singers. Pep Club loyalists... Just look around. Can a "brain" ever eat lunch with a "burnout" without fear of being gossiped about by his fellow colleagues in accelerated classes? Can a "jock" date a common student without being kidded by his lockerroom "chums"? Can a Hawkette lower herself to conversing with someone who does not qualify for any of the aforementioned cliques? Can a member of Choir ever expand his social circle beyond the first soprano section?

Ugly stereotypes and prejudices have developed here in lily white Maine South. It's time we got off our egoes. After all what good will it do to have been a cheerleader or a class council member, in 1987? If we start treating each other like human beings rather than hiding behind masks which certain activities prefer, school can be and will be a much warmer place. Instead of racing against each other for popularity, why don't we slow down and walk together? Beneath all the various stigmas attached to us, aren't we all humans? A Disillusioned Student

Soccer Finishes

by Dan White The varsity Hawk soccer team closed out their 1977 season last week in sectional play at Maine West. South played Evanston, Elk Grove, and (Gordon Tech. The team with the best record of the three games then proceeds to the state finals at Northern University. Gordon Tech emerged winner. On October 31, South faced Evanston, one of the top rated teams in the area. The Hawks lost 3-2 in a double overtime. South got an early 2-0 lead in the first quarter on goals by Tom Winkowski and Jay Dunsing with assists, from Bill Shinn and Manny Mueller. Maine South had nine shots on goal, while Evanston had 10.

Wlud Haj^md T& Owi SufffioAg Ch^^mie^ by Dan White You're a tiny spot in an empty mass of green bleachers, the wind carrying the distant sound of cheerleaders voices to you, the only loyal Hawk at a typical Maine South game. People realize that school spirit is dwindling, but they don't do anything about it. Maybe this is because few people have been to the games to see for themselves. But, the supporters of the other school's teams aren't as dense. For instance, at the recent varsity soccer sectional tournament two weeks ago at Maine West, a typical observance was made. Several Evanston cheerleaders and some of their many fans asked the few Hawk student fans what had happened to all our school spirit? They said here was a team (Maine South) that made it to the sectionals, but had no fans to cheer them on. This ideal scene of empty bleachers is not only common at the soccer games, but at most athletic events. Lack of spirit is obviously a problem. Its solution isn't very difficult.

Give Son City A Chance

'Heroes' Refreshing, Different by Tina Prodyma In an era of violent, vacuous movies, it's refreshing to find one that's different. "Heroes," starring Henry Winkler and Sally Field, is a heartwarming yet thought-provoking flick. Henry Winkler, of Fonzie fame, in his first major movie role, proves that he can actually act. The complex behavior of Jack Dunn is well-expressed by Winkler. "Heroes" is a love story between a disillustioned Viet Nam war veteran and a confused, aloof woman who is supposed to be married in three days. Dunn, who is constantly being shuffled in and out of the Veteran's hospital, finally escapes to travel to California to start his one desire in life, a worm farm with his war buddies. If that sounds a bit absurd to you, remember that a red-faced doctor decreed that Dunn is a bit nuts. Our Dunn travels to his destination via Greyhound bus, and on that bus he meets his future lover, Carol Bell, played by Sally Field. At first one expects Field to sprout wings and fly (remember the "Flying Nun"?) but she, too, plays her

Wniim Ttwitfed; JCocfe Oh OdeM by Marianne Schmidt Every two weeks, the poor, overworked writers for Southwords feature section are faced with the same dilemma. They must think of an original, exciting idea to write their article on. At first glance, this may seem very easy. However, one must realize that articles pertaining to sports and news are off Umit to feature writers, since there are certain pages in Southwords devoted to these topics. So it is up to the writer to think of something original; something that will interest the students as well as the faculty. It is very hard to think of articles dealing with school which are interesting and original. Of course there are the usual articles about the library system, lounge, and open campus, but after awhile these issues lose their appearl. Then it is time to think of something new. Admittedly, I am one of those writers who has problems thinking of new ideas week after week. So I decided I would ask some of my friends for help. The

response was hardly enthusiastic. Most people couldn't think of an idea either. Many students argue that the articles in Southwords are not interesting. If these students have any ideas on how to improve the articles, they should tell the editors or writers. I'm sure any help in improving the paper would be appreciated. Soemtimes I wonder if writing articles is worth all the time that goes into it. It is very easy to become discouraged, when there is no idea to work with. Then there is always the problem of typing up the article. This can be very traumatic (especially when you can't type very well). After all the work, you wonder if people actually read your aritcle. And then, it happens! Someone comes up to you and says they read your article. The person doesn't necessarily say the article was good, just that they read it. You are filled with joy. Someone (besides your best friend) has read your article! All the time and trouble of thinking of an idea was worth it!

Social Worker Available For Counsel When asked how many students she talks to in a day, Mrs. Dranoff replied, "On a typical day I talk to about eight people." She also added that she not only talks to students, but faculty and parents also. As another facet of her relationship with students, Mrs. Dranoff teaches values clarifications in several English and Humanities classes. One goal of these classes is to provide students with preventive counseling and to develop a sense of awareness or self-discovery. Through several exercises, students evaluate decisions and the reasons behind making them. To be able to evaluate decisions also helps in dealing with fictional characters in literature. By understanding the force that makes characters chose certain

paths, allows for a better understanding of a novel. To affirm an idea in a classroom makes a student see that decision more clearly to himself. Another benefit from these exercises is that they create an atmosphere where students can be honest with each other without fear of embarrassment. No one walks away from a values clarifications class with the feeling that their answer was incorrect, because there are no right or wrong answers. Mrs. Dranoff's office (in the personnel office) is open to anyone who would like to talk with her. A poster on her wall sums up the type of help she can give. "To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are."

Om m Om Ghm Goiul FeeSmg "One on One" is a movie that leaves everyone with a good feeling as they walk out of the theater. It is a surprising and slightly ironical script that emphasizes the old moral that with determination and an understanding friend anything can be conquered. The plot begins as a college freshman from a small town enters a top university on a basketball scholarship. He is treated sarcastically by his private student tutor who thinks all jocks are dumb. The coach, on the other hand, couldn't care less about mentality. The irony

comes out when the roles are switched and the coach's motives interfere with the tutor's realization of the main character's ability to study; as well as love. The audience is easily drawn into the feelings of frustration, anger, love, and the wiU to fight back so that by the time the movie is over you will feel as though you've accomplished a miracle yourself. The best thing about the movie is that it isn't a miracle, but a beUevable portrait of humans and unlike most movies, it relates to teenagers on a serious leveL

goal of the first period for the Hawks, five minutes into the period when a Maine East player was in the panalty box. Assists on the goal went to Dan Zyumal and Barry Thomas. Shots on goal in the first period ended at 6 a piece which gives an indication of how even the first period was played. In the second period, the Hawks started to take command. The Demons had a golden opportunity to score at the beginning of the period when a Demon player was left open in front of the Hawks net. A fantastic save by goalie Sullivan was the only reason the Demons did not tie the game. The Hawks then exerted themselves and at 11:52 Barry Thomas ripped the puck home for a score. Bob Berleith and Hank Smyth assisting. Two minutes later Jeff Starzec scored the first of his 2 goals when the Hawks were shorthanded. Starzec stole the puck from the Maine East defenseman and skated in alone from the red line and flipping the puck over the sprawled Maine East goalie for the score. To give an example of the hard checking going on, at 5:40 the referee was hurt when he was caught in a melee of players and had to leave the ice for repairs. When play was resumed, Starzec scored again on a slapshot when he was given the puck inside the blue line from Bob Havlir, thus the Hawks had a 4-0 lead. The third period began with two penalties, both against Maine East. As a result, the Hawks scored another powerful goal. Then Maine East started to get frustrated at their inability to score and as a result the rest of the game was peanlty filled. With the Hawks again finding themselves on the powerplay, Havlir scored his second goal on a good pass by Starzec. The Hawks defense, by allowing only 14 shots on goal the entire game, enabled the Hawks to coast home with a 6-0 victory.

Their next TD came on a 46-yard run by quarterback Sagan, with the help of some key blocks. North tallied at : 28 of the third period on a 51 yard Iwmb from Sagan to Renshaw, giving the Spartans a commanding 19-0 edge. A Hawk fumble on their own 29 yard hne, just seconds into the fourth quarter, resulted in the final addition to the Spartan victory.
