Century III award recipient Bonnie An has won the Century III Leaders Scholarship competition at Maine South, according to Principal Robert G. Barker. She is now eligible to compete with other local winners from around the state for one of two $1500 scholarships and an all-expense paid trip to the National Century III Leaders Conference, slated for March 15-18, 1985, in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. State winners will compete for the national prize of an additional $10,000 scholarship. As the school winner, Bonnie will receive a $100 scholarship funded by Student Council. Bonnie is a four-year member of Student Council, serving as Organizational Chairman this year. She is also President of Pep Council, and writes for Southwards. Bonnie would like to study pre-med at Yale. Doug Johnson is runner-up at Maine South. The Century III Leaders program is designed to bring together and recognize student leaders who show both strong leadership abilities and an interest in the future of America. Bonnie was judged on the basis of leadership skills, school and community involvement, and a current events examination. She also wrote a short essay on an issue which challenges America in its third century.

This is the tenth year of the Century III Leaders program, which awards a total of $218,500 in scholarships to 204 young leaders. Century III is sponsored and administered by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and funded by the Shell Oil Company. The Williamsburg meeting will be

highlighted by major speakers and seminars, along with discussions among students and leaders from the worlds of business, education, and government. Speakers at past conferences have included newsmen Harry Reasoner, Howard K. Smith, and Tom Brokaw; philosopher and futurist Buckminister Fuller; and Librarian of Congress Daniel Boorstin.

Mr. Robert Barker, principal, and Mr. Dan Misevich, Career Counselor, con-

gratulate Bonnie An as she receives her Century III award certificate.

Student Council offers sweaters Students can raise school spirit by purchasing a Maine South School Sweater. Student Council has endorsed the sale of the sweaters, which were designed by senior Jenny Nowak and her mother. The sweaters, made of high-quality durable wool, are red with a white trim and say MAINE SOUTH across the back. The company which has agreed to make the sweaters is Logar Knitting Mills, a company that specializes in school uniforms, such as cheerleading outfits and lettermen jackets, along with a number of other schools' sweaters. Although the sweater is designed to be decorated with patches, a buyer need not be a member of any specific club. Unlike club

jackets, these sweaters are available to everyone. In the future. Student Council hopes to see a variety of different patches from all the different school-related clubs. The sponsors of the many clubs have received information on designing different patches for the sweaters. Patches are expected to cost only $2 or $3 each. A sweater costs $50; a $25 deposit before being fitted, and the remaining $25 upon receiving the sweater. Jenny Nowak says, "Students should tell their parents the sweaters are a great Christmas gift! And if they sign up soon, the school sweaters can be received by then."

Work programs: separating facts from myt by Karen Frank Although many students have a full day of school, there are some students on the work programs at Maine South who are dismissed as early as fifth period. Most myths about these students conclude that they are involved in these programs just to "blow-off part of the day. Making easy money and having no homework are also false ideas about the programs. According to teachers and the students themselves, there is a lot more involved than just working at a regular job part of the school day. Organization, careful use of time, and responsibility are important parts of the student's day. Because of tight scheduling, work shifts, and extracurricular activities, some students even return to school after work. Office Occupations, a program available to seniors interested in exploring business and office jobs while still attending school, involves spending a minimum of 15 hours a week as a paid trainee in a general office, accounting, data processing or computer operations, receptionist or secretarial position. Students complete their school requirements in the morning and then report to an approved business office where they have been placed with the assistance of teacher and coordinator, Mrs. Catherine Glunz. Once the student graduates he or she may choose to continue business employment or attend a college or university. Two other important parts of the Office Occupations program that help students gain valuable

experience are the classroom and the club. Classroom instruction takes up one period a day and enables the student to expand the knowledge needed to create a confident feeling toward the business world. The class teaches personality and grooming techniques, basic procedures used throughout many offices, and how to get along with fellow employees and still maintain a business attitude. It allows the student to become involved socially and also further the education needed to benefit the future. The last part of the work programs at South is the club. These school clubs are all part of large national clubs organized to help students develop leadership qualities and "insure a better student and a more competent, welladjusted worker," according to Mrs. Glunz. Mrs. Glunz also states that the O.O. program gives a valuable "trial period experience" before spending large amounts of tuition money on a career in college. She adds that it is a realistic career choice since the current job market is yielding to high tech computers and electronics and everyone can use business experience for a later career or something just to fall back on in case prior plans do not work out. Mrs. Glunz concludes that Office Occupations is more than just secretarial work; it covers everything, and students who have been through this program have gone on to executive jobs as well.

Letter to the Editor

6A lunch: A real drag Dear Editor: Every single day I enter the lunch hues hoping, praying that there are a few measly cheeseburgers (actually soyburgers) left for me to humbly feast on. But, rarely do I get the privilege. Not only are the lines ridiculously long and are a death march on hot days, but when one does go through lunch-line purgatory successfully, there is always the suspense of whether or not any food is left! I personally do not like suspense when my food is concerned. , . . The problem lies with the administrative body in charge of the cafeteria. They are probably patting themselves on the back right now thinking how wonderfully efficient they are selling out every day of all their food. That's just marvelous except for the fact that a bunch of lowly students (whom the cafeteria is supposed to serve) are going hungry. Why not over-produce and waste a little food? At least the students in 6A lunch would not have to suffer through too little food or rejects from the previous periods. 1 feel sorry for the freshmen and sophomores who do not have 6B lounge to

finish their lunches in. I have seen many lunches thrown away because an underclassmen's lunch time ran out. Talk about waste! I propose the following to the administrative body that governs our food supply; 1. A study should be taken to see how much food each lunch period needs, then take that amount and add a bit to make sure there is enough. 2. Open up another lunch line so that kids do not spend an entire 20 minutes waiting for food that might not even be there. My digestion (actually indigestion) cannot take a daily "beat the clock" contest to shovel my food down. With these minute changes the cafe might not profit as much from non-waste, but at least my tummy (and yours also) would be much happier. Sincerely, Kevin O'Hagan

Clothing and Interior Design (CLID) and Food Occupations have been combined this year, and now the program is called Home Economics Occupations, headed by Mrs. Lenore Torp. The club has been working on several projects including the sub sandwiches at the Homecoming carnival, and they soon will be making Christmas cookies. For the work portion of the program, most members are employed at restaurants but some work in clothing and department stores. In the classroom they discuss how to seek employment, the aspects of work, income and social security taxes, writing resumes, and how to select future careers. Mrs. Torp, who supervises the students' progress on the job once a month, believes students don't lose the ability to participate in sports or other extracurricular activities while in work programs. Students still have an opportunity to keep their grades up through tighter scheduling and a good sense of balancing their time. She also states, "I think they work and earn a lot not just monetary; they gain experiences that we can't give them in the classroom." Another program at South is Child Care Occupations, available in and out of school. For either of these programs it is advised that the student take the semester course in Child Development. The in-school Child Care Occupations program, available to all juniors and seniors, is a lab preschool open from first to third periods. There, the students interact with small children to give them an idea of what a career with children might be like. When asked how the in-schooI CCO affects their day, Nancy Norden '85 said, "It takes your mind off of other things and makes your day go by faster, but you still learn a lot from the kids because they're all different ages." Martha Phillips '85 added, "It's fun to work with kids because they're very interesting and different people." Teacher and out-of-school coordinator Lois Berry points out that the in-school program creates an idealistic situation since there is a high teacher/child ratio, while the out-ofschool program, available to seniors, gives a realistic background to a career with children. The out-of-school CCO also has a class and club much like the other programs but they emphasize the methods of teaching and guiding small children that the students work with in daycare centers.

Mrs. Berry states, "they are paid for their work, but the money they earn is incidental to what they learn from experienced people and the children themselves." She also added that P.S. If anyone is interested in following up this child care skills are transferable and these skills letter, please complain to whomever is respon- can be used anywhere, as such skills make the sible. 1 have not yet found out whom I should students more understanding and caring complain to. towards others.

Reassignment: effective punisliment? by Tami Bower

Everyone knows that reassignment is no paradise. How effective is it? According to Mr. Bitta, the creator of reassignment, "It is effective. The students are still fulfilling their class assignments, still getting their class credit, and kids have to learn to be responsible for their actions—this is how they learn." It is effective—for some. Most kids do not want to go into reo, and the parents are supportive of the idea. In-school reassignment was created in the early 1970's because there was too much outof-school suspension. Now most kids are punished in reassignment for smoking. By the way, you can be "busted" for the following: loitering (Hamlin Gate and forest preserve); substance abuse (drugs or alcohol); missing a Dean's detention; posing a danger to school and other students; smoking; excessive tardiness. This brings up the question, "Why don't we have a smoking lounge?" First of all, students tried to start one in the 70's, but the board, administration and parents responded with an emphatic "no." Mr. Bitta also feels that the Maine South reputation would be jeopardized by the mere presence of a smoking lounge. Another fear is that drugs, not just cigarettes, would find their way into the lounge. And what happens when the weather gets cold? Then where do we move the smoking area? Of course there would still be the pro-

blem of smoking in the bathrooms. Besides, six minutes is barely enough time to get to your class, much less go to the lounge, enjoy a cigarette and then get to class. Here are some students' views on this subject. Kevin Diaz '85—"No, reassignment is not effective, it's a waste of time. It would be better if we had a smoking lounge with parent permission slips—you could go on your free period and have stickers to get in like on your library card. It would make the policemen's job easier. Besides, I am old enough to decide whether or not to smoke, I know it's bad for me but I am working on that myself." An anonymous first time offender—"I won't smoke in school any more. Believe it or not, 1 normally don't smoke. I just had a bad day, decided to smoke one and I got caught. I am on [an extracurricular activity] and I don't want anyone to find out. I think it's fair to go into a special room and be punished." With extracurricular sports, if you are put into reo, you at the least are suspended from the team. The worst result is being kicked off. Most students involved in the activities feel that it is fair because you signed up, it was a voluntary privilege, the rules were all explained at the beginning of the year and you will go by these rules. Unfortunately, a person can be "prosecuted" on hearsay. The law gives the deans local parentis; that is, legal, by law standing in place of your parents or guardian. Mr. Bitta feels that we are not old enough to choose, and we are not educated enough on the topic of smoking to make an intelligent choice. But the students are

required to take health class, where it seems like they try to scare you out of smoking. The students feel that they are educated and are old enough to choose, whether their parents approve or disapprove. The rules were set up in the 70's—these are the young minds of the 80's. Perhaps the rules need to be revised, but the board feels that these rules are good and no change is necessary. It would be a shame to go through the battle to form a smoking lounge for the problems that it would bring. By local parentis, the administration feels they know what is best for us. I'm sure that they do want the best for us, but aren't we old enough to decide? If adults will sell the cigarettes to us and we have the money for them, then we can smoke, so what's the difference where we smoke? There is a difference, according to the parents, board and administration. Sure, it would be hypocritical for them to give us a lounge, after the money spent on health classes, but by the comments it does not appear as if they are solving the problem of teenageers smoking, just detaining it until 3:30. They are trying and doing all that they legally can do to keep us from smoking, but other adults realize and capitalize on the ^ ^ market in teens' smoking. It is a difficult ^W balance to maintain. The only solution to the administration is don't smoke, to the students, give us a lounge. The history of problems does repeat itself. Is sticking a student in a room for one day going to solve his behavioral problems? No—but it will slow him down.

Suicide is not solution for problems —

Suicide, it's a poor excuse for solving any problem, no matter what the size. The full extent to which stress and society can pressure a person is unbelievable. Stress can cause enough pressure to make someone kill themselves to escape a problem, and that makes about as much sense as purposely walking home the winning run in the 9th inning because you're afraid the batter will hit a home run. I'm not sure that anyone reading this is contemplating suicide, but I know that most are xperiencing stress. Therefore I will attack both problems in order of importance. There's no reason for suicide. KiUing yourself is not in your best interest or others. Not only do you lose the chance forever to be somebody worthwhile and enjoy the rewards of life, but yhou leave a wake of disaster behind. You might escape your problems but you multiply the problems of people who care about you. There's no sense in punishing someone else

Favorite stars portray plastic character by Nancy Humm Movie stars—the title itself suggests superiority, something or someone just beyond the grasp of the "average, everyday, ordinary" person. So it's no wonder we tend to stand in awe of this elite group whose lives seem so different and more glamorous than our own. So many of our social activities center around television and movies, it's only natural for their stars to be a large part of our lives too. But, what must be remembered is that it is the actor's job to entertain. He must keep the audience enthralled in the program despite problems such as a horrible script and bad directing. While it seems that we 'know' these stars through their appearances on some sitcom or drama, they are acting, and most likely

the person we see on the screen is much different from the one who grocery shops, eats hamburgers, and feeds the dog in real life. With this in mind, students were asked who their favorite television or movie personality was, and their anwsers varied greatly in both subject and reason. John Corthinos '88, admires "Eddie Murphy for his acting in both movies." Agreeing with him that acting ability is an important part of a star's personality is Laura Durkalski '85, who likes, "Shelly Long because she's a natural and knows how to play the role effectively,"and Chrissy Coscioni '87, admires Dustin Hoffmann's ability to be "both a comical and serious actor." Other students believe that looks (both good

and bad) determine the desirability of movie stars. Pam Skafidas '87, likes Ralph Macchio, "because he's so cute," and Beth Hahen '86, thinks Richard Gere's looks "speak for themselves." Mark Murman '86, finds "Bill Murray hilarious, and he's got his own style." Lisa Erickson '86, agrees with Mark in finding humor important, but she prefers Lucille Bali because "she's a crazy kind of woman." Still other students find an actor's ability to play in diverse roles attractive. Liz Cicinelli '85, also likes Dustin Hoffmann, but she likes him because he "has class and can play a variety of roles well." Katie Moore '86, prefers Sean Penn because he, too, can "play different personalities effectively.',

One with higher status is more likely to be in a relaxed position. For example, a boss will sit whereas an employee will stand. For the employee to adopt a reclined position is viewed as disrespectful. Different cultures are known to have different forms of nonverbal expression. For example, in Italy it would be perfectly normal to see two men walking down the street with their arms around each other. However, in America, it would raise a few eyebrows. Speaking of eyebrows, eyebrow and eye contact are also impwrtant in detamining romantic feelings. A couple who are in love will tend to gaze directly and for a longer period of time than a couple who have just met. It has also been suggested that a teacher who gestures regularly gets better results with the students. People who use their hands frequently in discussion seem to have a more positive and enthusiastic outlook. So as a test, watch some of your teachers, and see how often they use body language along with speech.

Television favorites mentioned Is the television audience going to accept what has been produced for this season's schedule or will they stick to the Brady Bunch for the 90th season in a row? A small poll was taken to see what some of the younger audience prefers. Here is a sampling of what some students answered when asked what their favorite television show was. Geoff Pierce '87—"David Letterman is really funny."

Klay Schmeisser '87—"I like to watch 'Monday Night Football' because it marches up the toughest teams in the league, on a Monday night when there isn't anything else to watch." Gary Francis '87—"The Brady Bunch' is a very funny show. It adds a sophisticated point of view to life. Alice is wonderful. I like Cindy and Jan because they are very, very pretty. I also like Bobby because he is just like me. I also like Sam the butcher."

Swim team looks to Sectionals â&#x20AC;˘ The girls' swim team begins sectional meets tomorrow. The team's overall record this season is 7-1, with a conference record of 3-1. Maine South has performed exceptionally well this year as their record shows. Their secret to success is "effort," says Coach Dawn Butler. "They do it because they want to be the best," Coach Butler believes.

Two swimmers showing outstanding effort are Courtney Madsen and Jill Descher. That effort is put to the test with six days of practice each week, some as early as 6 a.m. The team hopes to prove they are the best in the upcoming state series starting Nov. 17. Four-year varsity member Courtney Madsen says, "A large part of our team has a good chance at state." Since girls sports started there has not been a

year that the Maine South girls' swim team was not represented in state. As this season comes to a close Miss Butler says, "Their training is over; it's up to the kids now. The team that wants to win state most will win. It's a team effort and everyone counts." Melissa Mau adds, "As Miss Butler has taught us, it's not always your time that counts, but that you did your very best at that moment."

Football team closes winning season Good attitude and determination were the motivating factors in this year's varsity football squad. The team never gave up and finished with a surprisingly good record in comparison to last year's record. The Hawks suffered disheartening losses in two important conference games with Evanston and New Trier. The Hawks could have taken the conference if they had won. Coach Phil Hopkins commented, "We had a tremendously successful and exciting season.

A great number of boys contributed to our success. The kids were very intelligent and had an outstanding attitude. They're a tremendous pleasure to work with. This has been the most enjoyable season for me." Senior Bob Giannini said, "The team has a much different feeling and attitude than in past years. Everyone on this team liked each other and everyone helped each other out. We worked hard this past year." Junior Tom Gatz added, "It was unfor-

Cross country runners honored The Maine South boys' cross country team is wrapping up their season with a record of 6 and 6. The team's most outstanding runners were senior Dan Lamken, junior Pete Delano, his first year on the team, and junior Mariusz Polkowski. All three were named AllConference runners. Pete Delano also qualified for this week's sectional meet. Sophomore Josh Lamken ran >vith the varsity on a few occasions, and Coach John Kilcullen expects him to be a regular addition to the varsity next year.

Other varsity members included Mark Fritz '85, Mike Moore '85, Pat Grage '85 and Tom Walker '85. Coach Kilcullen believes that the team's best meet was one against Glenbrook Nonh, the conference champs, early in the season. Maine South was the only team to beat them this season. When asked whether the team had lived up to his expectations he held at the beginning of the season. Coach Kilcullen replied, "Yes, we had some good surprises." He went on to state that he was pleased with the team's effort this vear.

Volleyball team finishes season The girls' varsity volleyball team ended their season losing to Maine East in the first round of the state tournament

also in three games. Riverside-Brookfield eliminated the Hawks from the finals by winning in two games.

The Hawks lost to the Demons in four games, 15-13, 5-15, 15-12, and 15-13.

The varsity team ended their season with a 2-8 conference record, 3-22-1 overall.

According to Coach Jim Lonergan, the team "played a great match." Although the Hawks lost, Mr. Lonergan felt "they played with a lot of heart."

Next year the Hawks will be young and inexperienced. The freshman team had an excellent season this year and they have what Coach Lonergan feels is a good attitude.

Before the season ended the varsity participated in Glenbrook North's annual Discovery Tournament. The Hawks advanced from pool play by beating Barrington in three straight games and losing to Lyons Township,

This leaves the possibility of moving freshmen up to varsity next year open. Returning varsity players will include juniors Laura Haaning, Chris Schaefer, Cindy Carlson, Killeen Leahy, Nancy Wilkas, and sophomore Chris Pintz.

tunate we lost to Evanston and New Trier. The seniors were 2-7 last year and nobody expected us to do this well. I think the seniors did a really good job."

Tennis goes state The varsity tennis team closed their season Fri., Oct. 26, at the state meet. Qualifying for state at singles were freshman Katie Clark and Jane Tully. The doubles teams of senior Laura Kashul and junior Lori Bonahoom and senior Jody Broud and junior Julie Swalla also went on to state competition. Katie Clark advanced to the third round after losing to number four-ranked Kristin Hill. Jane Tully advanced to the second round after losing a tough match. The two doubles teams lost in the first round, both in tie-breakers. The varsity finished its dual meets with a 5-5 record. The highlight of the season came with the sectional championship over Maine East.

Girls cross country ends The giris' cross country team began state meets earlier this month. The finals will be held tomorrow. At the end of conference competition, the team had accumulated a 3-2 record and an overall dual record of 4-7. In the conference meet held at Glenbrook North, the Hawks placed fifth; however, overall they placed third in conference. Leading the team into regionals were Sheila Malec, Andrea Hug, Evelyn Clark, Karen Davlin, Karen Frank, Gwynn Lockwood, Chris Fontaine and Michelle Modica. Coach George Gabauer expected this team to place in the top five teams and hoped to qualify a team for the sectional meet that was held Nov. 3 at Niles West. As far as next year is concerned, the team is ranked number one in conference because no one is graduating; therefore the entire team should be returning.
