New froshlsoph Hawkette squad formed A new addition to the Maine South Hawkettes is the appearance of the frosh-soph squad. The younger team, which will serve mainly as a preparatory group for the varsity corps, will perform at selected sophomore basketball games as well as compete in the novice division at invitational contests. Miss Barbara Bobrich, the groups' coach and sponsor, said, "The creation of the new squad was imminent because of increasing interest in the group, and the small number of girls actually selected to become Hawkettes."

College application season begins t

Ey LauAa Olion College application season begins or seniors with many questions. The application itself sometimes determines whether you will be accepted more than your grades or activities. "Type everything," encouraged Mr. Robert Hunt, English teacher, "I know a lot of admission people who use that as a screening device: the ones who don't, have it tossed. It has happened. It is an indication of the type of person. Typing shows a person who took the time and really cares." If you are retaking or taking the ACT or SAT at a later date, send your applications so they arrive at about the same time as your scores

will. Mr. Ken Reese,career counselor explained that you can send your application in without the scores as long as the scores arrive within the application period. If this is not possible, he suggests attaching a note of explanation. "You can assume most of the time that the school will use the best set of scores," said Mr. Reese. Essays give another picture of you. Mr. Hunt said, "They look for correctness in an essay. Poor grammar can be devastating. Your essay must be perfect because it shows you care. If you don't care, then they don't care to have you." Mr. Reese added that there was nothing wrong with having your Eng-

With the Homecoming festival coming up, here are some student opinions about it: Tracey Degrazio, '84, "I think Homecoming is great because the entire school shows spirit.

lish teacher look over it providing he or she is willing. The topic should "be something that will make you unique and distinguishable from others. It should show you as the kind of person who thinks about the situation you have just undergone and how you fit it in to your life," said Mr. Hunt. Interviews, generally for very selective schools, are simply the school's way of getting to know you in the best way possible, according to Mr. Reese. "Most interviews will ask these type of questions: Why did you pick this school? What kind of activities do you enjoy? What are your goals? Why did you pick this major? Tell me about yourself. I've never heard of an interview that was a tense or uncomfortable experience. Be yourself and relax," concluded Mr. Reese. Mr. Hunt had a final piece of advice: "Please apply to the one school that you really want to go to, but won't because you think you won't qualify or be able to afford it.

Student welcomes bus story Dear Editor: I'd like to thank you for printing an article on a subject that means a lot to many students from the Harwood Heights, Norridge and Norwood Park Township areas. I am referring to your article concerning the elimination of our bus runs to and from school. Upon attending the Sept. 22 meeting (mentioned in your article) with Nortran, I found we might as well have been banging our heads against the wall. According to a law enacted in 1976, bus companies cannot deviate from their regular routes to

provide special school bus service. This year Nortran (as they say) was forced to comply after providing school service since 1976 when the law was passed. We understand they must follow the law, but why in 1981 and why so suddenly without notice? The group of concerned parents that attended both meetings with Nortran has given up on them because there is no way they are going to give us a bus. They are now looking into a private bus for students in our area. I hope it works. Thanks again for printing a story that means a lot to me. Vaim WodJLjta

Usually very selective schools use this procedure and require "a substantial deposit," according to Mr. Reese. "This type of admission is for the student who definately knows where he wants to go. For example, a student who applied Oct. 13 would know by Dec. 4. 2. Early admission is for those students who graduate early or enter early, in January, instead of September for example. - 3. Deferred admission allows the student to postpone enrollment for one year after acceptance. 4. Equal consideration is for all applications received within a certain time period. The University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana has Sep 25 through Nov. 15 as their period. 5. Rolling admission allows the college to make its announcements of admission over several months.

Norgen new aouin cnairman Bt/ Anne S-izopouloi Miss Suzanne Horgen is South's new home economics department chairman. Miss Horgen was a home economics teacher at Maine West and the department chairman at Maine fiorth. "I think the switch has been relatively easy because the staff here has been cooperative," Miss Horgen said. "The kids are kids, they're always nice to work with and Maine South has very nice facilities." A major change in the department is the relocation of the child care lab from the V-wing to a clothing lab. Miss Horgen said the new room provides added space for five to eight more children. Students will also have an observation booth where they can watch the children's activities through a one-way mirror. The V-wing lab will now serve as a department center where teachers can meet with students and hold conferences. Miss Horgen said. "I would like to see students consider taking time in their schedule to take a class in the practical arts area. This ineludes home economics and industrial education." because "I think the things it's you'll important learnmainly will

be helpful throughout your life." Miss Horgen added, "We'd like to invite students to see the child development room." She encourages boys who are interested in recreation and enjoy working with kids to look into the child development program, "I'd love to see some boys get involved," she added. r 1 ^ A ^ l I^Allil/A^ f / ^ O I O C / L l l f frr C/| ( J o I ,. . . tditor-in-Lmet Anne Sizopoulos "^'^^ + rV-i ^^^^^ ^^^ Commentary tditor Laura Olson ^eatures tditor Cindy Coltman Dh°t FH-I Leo Smith Khoto tdUor Mike Vukovich Lopy tditor Cathy Stavrakas D *" ?"^^ D^"ii" '^™ ^^^'^^ Reporters: Phyllis Belmonte, Maria h ^°'"^^'*-h "ci ^°'^"^' ^^'^^''^ Dannen'1^^^'^' "^^^"^ Flynn, Dan Gayford, Ana ,9"^^'^^; Brian Humm, Kris Juneman, '^™ Kaeding, Kersten McLain, Debbie Nelson, Carolyn Schultz, Joanne Sut^°"» Maureen Smith, Debbie Tritt^fc hardt, Laurie Walters, Jeff W o o d J ^ Karen Yates. ^^°^° Staff: Andy Hadley, Lium FarMike rell,01 sen, Eric T.J.

TP'ing: Is it wortt) tlie troubie? by lauJiLz WaMzu On the weekends many houses in rk Ridge can be seen covered under blanket of a paper substance normally associated with the bathroom. This act of enthusiasm is conmonly known as TP'ing. Maine South Pep Council decorates the houses of all of the varsity starting line-up members of major sports during their season before a game. The purpose of TP'ing the players' houses is to psych them up for winning. Missy Kuffel '82, president of Council, said,"A lot of times little brothers or the team members themselves will come out, and we will all TP the house together." In the fall season. Pep Council decorates the homes of either the football players or soccer players. Nick Mitrovich '82 varsity soccer member, said, "I think it's really



super. My parents think it's great because they never experienced anything like that when they were in high school." Bob Pegler '82, varisty football member, said, "I don't mind, but it sip - ' • ' - r t i t i ^ doesn't really get me psyched up for the game." ^WJ» ^'J^^^i.c-iMp? People have different feelings about TP'ing; some even think of it as a form of vandalism. But, for the most part, it is taken in good fun. Brigid Kennedy '82 said, "Police aren't much of a problem because the only time we got caught, we told them we were from Pep Council and they didn't mind." Terri Springer '82, member of Pep Council, said, "most parents don't mind the TP'ing because they know it is just to psych the guys up for the game."

'Eye' recommend 'Eye of the Needle' by KoAen VatzA

. I!jg-iye of the Needlp stands out in my mind as one of the few fine movies to come out this summer. It is the story of a German spy (Donald Sutherland) who has infiltrated England's war department during WWII and discovered beforehand the surprise attack at Normandy. . in an attempt to rendezvous with fne Germans, the Needle (the spy's coae name) is shipwrecked on Storm island and falls in love with a woman (Kate Nenigan)living on the island with her crippled husband.


The film only has one major flaw. The character of the Needle is portrayed as a cold, efficient machine, unlike his character in the novel by Ken Follett. It is rarely in this film that we see through the Needles cool exterior. Even with that flaw, I can highly recommend everyone to see E ^ of the Needle. This movie proves that filmmakers can still produce films of quality. Note: if you missed Tess when it first came out, see it now. It is back again for a limited engagement.

'True essence of Homecoming' debated by Ve.bbiz


Without trying to remind you of any nightmares from English I, the "true essence of Homecoming" can be figured out by breaking up the word and turning it around. "Coming home" is exactly what some alumni will be doing in order to see the Hawks play football.

But, is this Homecoming weekend intended mainly for the students or visiting alumni? Robyn Krug, '82, says, "I think it's for everybody. There's a lot of people from the class of '80 that are coming back." Lynn Seaberg, '83, also agrees. "I think it is for both. A lot of

Topical Topics

Driving drunic a serious offense by LauAa Coynz About two months ago, four girls, ages 17 and 18, were hit by a car as they walked on the shoulder of Rand Road. One girl was killed instantly, another died after several days on a respirator, the third suffered broken bones all over her body and the other sustained minor injuries; however, she later went into shock and had a nervous breakdown. Unfortunately, the sad part of this story is yet to come: the man behind the wheel was a 35 year-old drunk. The entire incident could have been avoided if only he did not have "a few too many." Traffic accidents are the greatest cause OT violent death in the U.S. today, and drinking is a factor in at least half of these accidents. About 25,000 people are killed annually by alcohol-related accidents. This figure makes the U.S. the undisputed leader in deaths by drunk drivers. Here is how other countries deal with the situation.

people that I know in college have plans on coming back." There are others that say this/ weekend is for the students. Ann Seidel, '82, reasons that "it is for the people that are already here, because very few people want to come back after they've escaped from here. Agreeing with her is Carolyn Szumal '82, who says, "It is more for students that are here now mostly because I think anybody that's already graduated would not want to come back." Laura Weaver, '82, takes a humorous approach to the question. "It is for the people here but not the sennior girls because they never get asked. All the guys there are to ask are going with underclassmen." Remember, Homecoming is what you make out of it. If you can't go to the dance, cheer up and go to the carnival and firelight rally with your friends. As to the question of alumni coming back, watch the football game and keep an eye on old familiar faces. You never know who might be there.

'JK"M Fitness kick starts in P.E, On Oct. 2 an elective gym course began. The class is a combination of exercise and dance to music that allows one to work out vigorously without realizing it. The program was added due to student demand. "It has great appeal," said Miss Catherine Pierce, the department chairman. "The program will increase the participant's fitness and flexibility. I think it will be popular'.' Miss Phyllis Goll and Miss Joanne Barnes will begin teaching the pro-

gram. Miss Barnes, from Maine North, has had previous experience in this type of exercise. "The girls at Maine North really liked it," said Miss Barnes. "Girls who are interested in dancing wil'^B^ really enjoy it." ^ ^ "I was skeptical at first but now that I'm starting to get into it I really enjoy it," Miss Goll said. "I would like to evaluate it at the end of the program to see if it has taken effect."

Girls' swim team to dive at Maine East

Girls' swimming Coach Dawn Butler expects two easy victories as the Hawks face conference rivals Maine East today and Maine West next Fri. Both meets are home. The following day (Sat. 24) Maine South hosts the Hawk Invitational, a 12-team event. According to Justine Descher, team

captain, the invitational "will be a tough one with strong teams." However, being tough is nothing new for the Hawks. Both varsity and JV levels have an undefeated conference record of 4-0. Varsity suffered their first dual meet loss when they faced Naperville North; JV, on the

other hand, pulled out another win. "The JV squad this year, says Butler Miss Butler said, "The JV squad this year is the best we have ever had. We are not only defeating our opponents, but we are beating them by a wide margin." Coach Butler is equally impressed with the varsity level. Tracy Keenan who is a four-year varsity member is the only undefeated swimmer. Butler added, "We hope Tracy will be state champion in the breaststroke, right now, she has the best time in the state, but she could face some tough competition." Janine Engel is another swimmer who deserves recognition. Janine broke last year's diving record of 222 with a score of 225. Maine S o u t l ^ has never had a diver in state coifl^' petition. "If Janine competes her point score would help the team immensely toward our goal: to be third in the state," concluded Butler.
