play is not sad even though it is about death, but instead it shows love and how much you should appreciate each day of your life.

OLLI Town will be staged as the original, without any scenery. The student director is BethAnn Karabin, with Shannon Vincent and Mike Heitzman in the leading roles of Emily and George.

"OuA ToMn is one of the two or three finest plays of the century," said Mr. Donald Martello, director. "The play changed the course of American theater." "The show is well cast which will provide overall enjoyment for the audience," added BethAnn Karabin, student director. The English Department gave the idea for choosing this play because the sophomore classes were reading it. Oux Tomi was performed at Maine South a few years ago but with a limited audience because the play was done in the summer. This time it will be videotaped and cuttings will be used by the English classes. They will also show dress rehearsals to the junior high schools. The stage manager Ted Bales steps • Mr. Martello said, "The play is in as the minister at George (Mike ^full of humor and romance. It is di- Heitzman) and Emily's (Shannon Vin-

Annie'plans Aniiie. Ge,t Vour Gun,



broadway musical, will be presented April 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, and May 1 in the auditorium. Mr. Loyd Spear, music department chairman, said that Annie- Ga.t Voux Gun was chosen because "it's completely different from anything we have ever done before. It's lighterhearted than past musicals and we wanted to get into a lighter vein this year. It also involves a lot o" iids and will give more people ar jpportunity to get involved in music and drama." Aiiiue Get Voux Gun is the story of Annie Oakley, a female sharp-


advance shooter in Buffalo Bill's side show in the early 1900's. "There's No Business Like Show Business" and "Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better" are some of the popular songs in the musicaj. When asked if the play will be a success, Mr. Spear said, "We've never had a bad one yet, and I hope they'll continue to be as good. tiaine South has a fine orchestra, "id dancers, and plenty of darn yuuu singers, it should be a real fun show for everyone, not only for those watching, but for everyone involved on stage and backstage."

Starting next fall dropping a fifth subject will be wery difficult for students. "When students drop a class, the size of the class drops with them and we would like to operate more full classes," said Mr. Bonney, Chairman of Counselors. 'We can't afford to hire the teachers and get the rooms and then have students drop the course. Choosing a course should be a firm commitment." Mr. Bonney found that students are dropping subjects either because their work load is too heavy or the student does not put enough effort into the class. The principal and assistant principal are working on a definite plan to make it more difficult to drop a fifth solid. Mr. Bonney said one possible plan is to shorten the current quarter limit for dropping a solid, or to include the department chairman, principal, and the counselor in deciding whether or not to let the student drop the class.

Hawkettes win awards, compete in state The Maine South Hawkettes competed at the Badgerette Clinic last November 8 at Mundelein High School. The girls won first place for doing their dance routine, second place for speed learning, and fourth place for their originality routine. The Badgerette Clinic is sponsored by a group of pompor girls from the University of Wisconsin. Barbara Bobrich, Hawkettes spon-

sor, defines speed learning as "Doing a routine after learning it in only a few minutes. It is a real test of squad discipline and attention. " This February 13 the Hawkettes will be competing against 65 other teams in the Palatine Invitational. During the Invitational the varsity Hawkettes will do a 6-8 minute show consisting of their V-Show act with

extra modifications added. They will also perform their novelty act to the music of "Physical", dance to the song "On Broadway", and do a kickline to "Keep on Steppin'". The Frosh-Soph Hawkettes will do a novelty act with the song "Sentimental Journey" at the Invitational. Depending on their success, the Hawkettes might enter the state contest this March 13.

Youth officers added as security bi/ LaLiiit


Three security officers have been added this year at Maine South after .being approved by District 207. No |i-particular incident provoked the additional security, but now the level is up to that of the other two Maine schools. These officers are: Bob Lowen, a Youth Officer for the Park Ridqe Police Department; Bob Kristie, a graduate of Maine South, working on his degree; and Bob France, a student at University of Chicage Circle Campus. All three are Park Ridge police-

Doctor $a

men who are specially trained in adolescent problems. Off duty from their regular police jobs, they work at Maine South for 6h hours a day. Two of the three are on at a time during the day, in addition to Maine South's regular officer. Captain Ben Dryer. Mr. Andrew Bitta, dean of students said, "We have never had security in the halls as adequately as we have now. We didn't have enough people to maintain security before in a building of this size." Mr. Bitta added, "The security officers are totally visible. They

are not undercover." The officers follow the same procedures as a teacher would when a student is breaking a rule: write a behavior report. If a student is caught in a serious, illegal act, the officer does have the power to arrest the student, but usually will get the approval of Mr. Bitta. Mr. Kenneth Reczkiewicz, assistant principal, explained, "An overwhelming percentage ot parents would probably agree to having security in school. The second reason is to keep out trespassers who might want to violate our building security."

"Finland is bordered by Russia, Sweden, and Norway. The country is green and hilly with lots of ponds and lakes. The people of Finland spoke Finnish and Swedish, but my families spoke English fairly well, so communication was not a problem." "My first family lived in a industrial town with about 23,000 people. My second family lived in the capital city of Helsinki, with ^ 5 0 0 , 0 0 0 people." IP "My families, who happened to be ^" cousins, owned a 29 acre estate.

Special effects attract concert bij Vdbbid


Concerts are among the f a v o r i t e ^ a c t i v i t i e s of today's youth. Randy Snodell, ' 8 2 , who used to work at Rosemont Horizon, commented, "Any show that is w i l d , loud, f l a s h i n g , and o u t - o f - t h e - o r d i n a r y tends to be a more popular show." He went on to say that bands use smoke, f l a s h p o t s , explosions, and sparkling l i g h t s . The group Queen used mirrors as an e f f e c t at t h e i r concert, while Black Sabbath has used four foot flames to enhance t h e i r concert. A f t e r Ozzy Osborne l e f t Black Sabbath, his popularity

dwindled. In order to a t t r a c t the fans again, he used gimics l i k e b i t ing the head o f f of a dove on stage. Performers l i k e these were described by Randy as "showmen." At t h i s type of concert, a wide range of ages show up. Children of seven and eight can be seen along with adults in t h e i r 20's and older. The stunts the showmen produce "give kids an u n r e a l i s t i c view of l i f e , but f o r adults i t ' s OK. I t ' s purely entertainment," remarked Randy. What makes any concert, with or without gimics, a good one? B i l l Mel o y , ' 8 3 , claims i t i s "the atmosphere in the conrprt h a l l . " fWhat

was in the atmosphere, he did not say.) Chris Serio, '83, agreed, "The people make it fun." Dave Lemonier, '83, explained, "You need a good group with loud sound free of mechanical problems and a good light show." The success of a concert "depends on who you are with," says Colleen Dempsey, '83. According to Judi LeMay, '83, "A lot of it is the audience participation and if you can tell the band really enjoys being there." Beside the obvious fact that a performer's music is the main reason to hear it done live, concert goers know the impact special effects can have along with the liveliness of the audience present.

'On Golden Pond' worth seeing btj KoAtn Vcit(L.i

When I went to see On Golden Pond a few days ago, the first thing that struck me was the amazing simplicity of the film. No twisty bus-plots, nc clumsy, heavy-handed dialogue are to be found--just fine, solid acting by Katherine Hepburn and Henry Fonda. The movie concerns an elderly couple (Fonda and Hepburn), who have to come to grips with family problems and ultimately face growing old at their vacation cottage on Golden Pond. The relationship between Norman and Billy, the soon-to-be grandson, in the central passages of the movie is predictable, but the fine acting enables the movie to transcend the predictability. As a result, the Tiovie glows with a kind of inner ra^ diance that is rarely found in films today. Hepburn and Fonda both move this film gently along with an ease that



Saudi Arabia: 'IHome Sweet Home?' I O**

No, t h i s i s not another AFS story but a day in the l i f e of a Saudi Arabian. My brother, who happens to be a chemical engineer in Saudi Arabia, recently wrote me to f i l l me in on the other side of the world. Of the many differences between the Arabs and the Americans, the rel a t i o n s h i p between men and women is perhaps the strangest. For example, when a family e n t e r t a i n s , the men and women are always segregated-unless the couple is married. Men and women are not to show the s l i g h t e s t a f f e c t i o n f o r each other i n p u b l i c - - h o l d i n g hands i s even bad. Also, single men and single women should not appear together in p u b l i c . I f they are caught together, the man can be j a i l e d , and the woman can be sent back to l i v e with her mother and f a t h e r . This does not always happen, though. " I t depends on what mood the policemen are i n . " My brother i n s i s t s the women of Saudi Arabia are not looked upon as i n f e r i o r , but when I consider the following t h i n g s , I , personally, tend to wonder. For example, women can onlv assume certain jobs, such as, nursing or teaching. Staying home with the children is a woman's main f u n c t i o n . Women are, a l s o , supposed to wear v e i l s when outdoors--for the sake of modesty. Plus, a women must always cover her upper arms; "Men f i n d them offensive f o r some reason." Men, however, apparently don't f i n d polygamy (having several wives) o f f e n s i v e , because each man in Saudi Arabia is allowed up to four wives. However, the present wives must agree to a new one before the man can marry her, (how t h o u g h t f u l . ) Furthermore, a man can divorce his wife by merely saying " I divorce

Wrestlers compete in districts bij Bob McKuHC

The Maine South varsity wrestling ^eam will compete in the Maine West istricts tomorrow at 6 p.m. At the Jan. 23 Elmwood Park Tournament, Dave Ericson captured the first place medal and broke South's season takedown record. Bob and Dave Phillips took third at the tourney, while Jim Paulette, John Okulanis, Dan Greising, Bob McKune and Andy Skoog took fourth. At New Trier last Friday, varsity lost 47-6, JV lost, but the freshmen won. Ericson and Phillips were the only Hawks to win. At Stevenson, the varsity lost, while JV and frosh won. Ericson pinned his opponent, Bob Phillips won a superior, while McKune, Greising, and Jon Turnquest won by decisions. On JV, Andy Rubino, Tony Denardis, Neil Deichmann, and Tony Colletti

all pinned. Varisty wrestler Rich Mull ins is out for the rest of the season. Rich separated his shoulder while wrest1ing at Maine East.

Girls to host Hawk Classic The girls' basketball team will host the Hawk classic on Sat. Feb. 13.

Deines commented on the tournament, "It's a good opportunity to tune up for

Letter to Editor investigated by


Hu/nm |

The response to the "Letter to the Editor" on the hockey team in the January 15 issue of SoutluWids was overwhelming. The Maine South administration recieved many calls dUI rom parents claiming that the hockI team should not obtain support rom Maine South and they should do something about the player's behavior and foul language. Actually, Maine South has nothing to do with the hockey team. Support is not received from Maine South. Because of this there are never announcements on the "Monday Morning Sports Report" or in the daily bulletin. There is legally nothing that Maine South can do to prevent a hockey team from calling itself a Maine South hockey team.

The freshman team is now 8-4-1. Outstanding freshmen include: Chris Rivisi, who broke a freshman record, Jim Okulanis, BobGiannini, Marty Nistler, and Paul Walker.

Principal Robert G. Barker said, "The hockey team in this area which calls itself the Maine South Hockey Team has no connection with Maine South as a school. We do not manage it and we do not sponsor it." Counselor John Tyler commented, "More students should view the game of ice hockey. There's a lot more interest in it. The image of high school ice hockey is pretty well organized." Several students voiced their opinions of the team. Siobhan Keefe, '83, stated, "I think the coverage of the team should be improved because they work as hard as any other team. I think they should be sponsored by the school like other athletic teams." Wayne Auge, '82, said, "The hockey team needs more support from the school."

the last weeks of the season." Maine South will host regionals for the first time the week of March 8. The teams competing are: Maine East, Ridgewood, Ressurection, and Maine South. Deines said, "We're excited about this, (regionals). We have a good chance to accomplish our goal,(to win regionals). We are getting better every game and we're still improving." The Hawks have reason to believe they can win regionals beRessurection by only one, and to Maine East by only two. The conference has been a disappointment for the girls, with only one win in six games. This win did come recently against New Trier, so the team is showing improvement. Also three of their five conference losses were by less than four. When the hawks went up against second place Maine West, they hung close until three fourth quarter turnovers cost them the game.

Gymnasts in districts Pending the outcome of yesterday's districts, which were held at Maine South, the girls' varsity gymnastics team will take on sectionals at Niles West. Maine East, Maine West, Leyden, Oak-Park, Proviso East and Ridgewood all competed in yesterday's districts. On Feb. 4 at a conference meet held at Maine East Maine South finished 5th out of 6 teams. Michele Ryan placed 1st in conference on the balance beam. Varsity's record is 2-3 in conference. On Jan. 29 varsity beat Niles West 105-103, the highest score in Maine South's history. The freshmen and Junior Varsity won also. On Jan. 23 varsity placed 13th out of 32 teams at the Niles West Invitational. Varsity placed 25th last year and was pleased with this year's improvement. Throughout the year many strong performances have helped the team. Sue Rushford on vault, Debbie Tworek on vault, and Diana Steinhart on floor have scored consistently in the 8's. Due to deadline we are unable to cover districts. If you are interested contact a gymnast who competed. page 9

There are many organizations who work behind the boys' teams at South to insure a better season. The Wrestlerettes promote enthusiasm and support for the wrestlers. They make locker taas, attend all meets, and on one occasion, decorated the boys' locker room. They provide refreshments for the wrestlers after the meet, and give the team the warm and lively support wrestling teams usually don't get. They also sponsor a Christmas banquet and a Winter Sports' banquet. Wrestler

Bob McKune said, "The Wrestlerettes provide food, sympathy, and when we win, congratulations;" The Pep Council backs many Maine South sports including soccer, football and basketball. Before all the games, they teepee players' houses. Officer Brigid Kennedy said, "I'love it when we get a earful of girls together to go teepeeing. Sometimes we can't find the house and have to ask someone." Even when the teams are losing. Pep Club backs them at every home game. Cheerleaders are an important

South plus for the teams. Basketball player Ed Schmelzer said, "We hear them^^ cheering and it keeps up our spirij^Mv when we're playing." ^^ The Hawkettes dance at halftime at all home games. They support the team and entertain the crowd. Said Christy Scheidt, "The practices are strenuous but the performances are worth it." The timers work with tha swimmers by recording times and scoring. They also support the team. Senior Steve VanSpankeren said, "There wouldn't be a meet without them."

Hawks play conference leader Evanston bif



The varsity basketball team takes on the first place Wildkats of Evanston tonight, away at Evanston High School. This is a key conference battle because a second victory over Evanston would move them up in the conference standings. The Hawks already upset the Wildkats at Maine South on Jan. 8. The team's 3-3 record in conference puts them in fourth place; behind: 4-2 New Trier, 5-1 Maine West, 5-1 Evanston. Evanston's only loss came from the hands of the Hawks. Evanston has beaten both Maine West and New Trier, while Maine South has lost to both. Consistency is the key to the Hawks future. They have beaten the best but lost to the second and third place teams. A look at a non-conference game provides more evidence that Maine

South has the talent but lack the consistency to do it every night. The team beat St. Viators, the 15th ranked team in state, who, in turn, beat New Trier. Unfortunately the basketball team has played New Trier twice in conference. They will not be able to avenge two early season

The hockey team finishes their Chicago Metro League play against Deerfield and Lake Forest, on the 17 and 21, respectively. Face-off for Deerfield, is 8:3C p.m. at Oakton and the final Chicago Metro League game against Lake Forest starts at 4 p.m. at Northbrook Ice Arena. The Hawks are 7-11 in conference and recently lost to second place Glenbrook North 5-1.

Conference meet to be held for swimmers bij



The Hawks' swimming season is reaching its peak. The conference meet is tomorrow at Niles West, with diving starting at 2 p.m. and the swim action starting at 7 p.m. The .Hawks finished the regular season 10-2, winning at cross-town rival Maine East, placing second in the Titan Relays, crushing Maine West, and beating Niles West. Swimmers with exceptional season records are: Jeff Stachelek, who has broken the school's 200 freestyle record, Steve Delano, Fred Palffy, Mike King, and his brother John. JV powers were Roman Berka, Brian Barry and Steve Duerkop, while promising freshmen are Pat Grage, Eric Thorson Matt Par, and Don Mech. Diver Tom Walsh also had an outstanding year. Coach John Doherty said, "I am page 10

losses. To pass the Indians at New Trier, Maine South has to keep on winning and hope New Trier loses. After a slow start, the team has begun to come together. Center Mike Sir said, "We're basically a whole new team, and we're finally blending together

very happy about this season. We've had a lot of successes, like beating Glenbrook North for the first time in the school's history. Even our losses to Evanston and New Trier were close. In all our meets, we've taken more firsts than our opponent. This is the best season we've had in the 12 years I've been here." The district meet will be held Feb. 18 at Evanston. The team appreciates fan support. In districts the Hawks will go up against two tough teams. The home team, Evanston has already beaten Maine South, and Fenwick promises to be another team that has to be dealt with. The following swimmers show the most promise to qualify for the state meet on Feb. 26, and 27; Stachelek, Delano, Mike King, John King, Mazzler, and Vanspankeren.

Against Notre Dame the Hawks took an early lead. By the beginning of the third period the score was 4 - ^ ^ in favor of the Hawks. Then the D o n i ^ of Notre Dame took over. In the last period the Dons scored six goals and only allowed the Hawks to score one goal. This left Notre Dame with a two goal victory, 7-5. With two games remaining their seventh place spot leaves them with no mathematical way to receive a play-off birth. Once again the hockey picture is one of too many injuries and penalty minutes.
