Class of '67 Holds Scholarship Kiosk Reunion 'I- 1
Upon returning to Maine South for the ten-year reunion of the Class of 1967, we are greeted with many familiar faces and memories of events long past. Among the first we see as we enter the school grounds are the parking lot monitors, Jim Raymond and Tom Beck. At the sound of screeching brakes, we turn to see a paisley 442 driven by Mike "Golden Oratory" Ewing, guest speaker at the banquet. As we approach the school, we notice a new addition to the lagoon: a giant statue, somewhat resembling the Colossus of Rhodes, astride a huge plaque bearing the single word, "Disperse." On our way to the library, we see a huge construction site. Jeannie Hosey informs us that just as Maine South was built on a garbage dump, so Maine North-West is being constructed on top of Maine South's cafeteria. Soon we see the scholarship kiosk, where the party is to be held. The kiosk is elaborately decorated in shades of puce and fuschia, as designed by Margo Decicco and Barb Prykan. As we enter the kiosk, we are greeted hospitably with a warm handshake from Pegg Ratcliffe and an affectionate hug from Andy Larsen. Standing just inside the door are lobbyists Gregg Moutoux and Pat Pierce, officials of the Women's Soccer Board, they are watching their star team
Friendship Drive Passes $900 Complex C-140, Mr. Gary Hahn, and complex C-134, Mrs. Barbara Sides, were the winners in the Brotherhood Friendship Kit Drive. C-140 was the winner by $5 and the complex collected a total of $180.31. The entire school collected over $900, which exceeded the amount predicted. Friendship Kit bags are being shipped to children in Vietnam by the Mid-America Chapter of the Red Cross Youth. The chapter hopes to ship 50,000 kits before June 30. The kit bags consist of bright colored bags containing such items as water colors, sketch pads, jigsaw puzzles, balls, mirros, and plastic toys. Each bag is equivalent to about $2, Maine South will ship 225 kit bags this year, and two school kits next year. Each school kit is about $100 and contains school supplies, such as balls, paper, and slates for use in writing. Brotherhood Society is also sponsoring a volunteer Red Cross program to aid the handicapped and mentally retarded children in hospitals. Officers of Brotherhood next year are Dave Switzer, president; Jim Luety, vice-president; and Pat Townsley, secretarytreasurer.

members Carol Van Natta, Barb Naieway, Natalie Paul, Chris Talchlk, and Linda Theis, perfect an intricate play which they will use in next week's game against the East Side Chip (off the old block). A few feet away, Lynn Hagen is crowning her successor, Joanne Rosensteil, "Miss Sunny Side Up", as runners-up Betty Fields, Gail Mazer, and Barb Sensenbrenner look on, turning green, supposedly with envy. Watching the proceedings are Matt Bunyan and Steve Hyde, dressed in Ivy League suits and conservative ties. We found ourselves stuck in one place, as the kiosk was a little crowded, being occupied, according to Tim Mellon's second rough estimate, by over 600 people. However we can still see Judy Jackson and Sue Uaake supervising Bruce Howie as he draws cartoons for the reunion yearbook. Among his models are jolly Jan Christopher, who is jumping jovially for joy, Sallie Thompson, who is busily composing sonnets, and Bill Sterba with his beautiful teeth. Rich Maerk is sitting on the bench, waiting. Several students are recalling the "Senior Superlative Awards" of ten years ago, such as Jay Beaumont, voted "Most Likely to Receive a May Basket", Nancy Tracy, "Most Likely to go Bald"; "Most Fickle", Dick Wenz; "Most Subdued", Kristie Pedersen; and the "True Blue Award" to John McCallum. Heading the list of "Best Dressed Awards" were Pat Price, "Best Dressed E a r s " ; "Best Dressed Legs" to Linda Reidland; and Greg Parsons, who received the "Best Dressed Feet" award. Barb Walker, editor of FORTY-THREE magazine, is interviewing Robin Wilkinson, librarian, and Jim Mc Cullough, pauper, while Barb Ulvilden copyreads over her shoulder. While this was going on, Judy Projahn, Roller Derby champion, was being applauded smilingly by Nancy De Biasi. Feeling a sudden draft, we look upward to see Linda Petrick unexpectedly drop in on the reunion clutching her umbrella. She lands on the shoulders of Ralph Berke, panelist on "What's My Line", who is unsuccessfully trying to guess Joanne Hoff's occupation. Tom Petty, Joanne's manager, is watchfully standing by trying to conceal the fact that she is actually a center for the Chicago Bulls. In what might be called "The Authors' Corner" we find Harold Kiriluk, Jim Goodale, and Mark Romness discussing their latest work, Being an Albino for Fun and Profit, while Sue Bennett promotes her book. My Life As an Exotic Dancer. Kathy King, bendy-action rifle at her side, is hawking copies of her bestseller, Double Up for Safety, as Sharon Strother looks up the word secretary in the

dictionary. Hmmmmmm . . . . see Lynch. Colleen Lynch, mistress of ceremonies, has just finished leading the group in the pledge, and is introducing Mark Schrag, who will tell funny punny jokes. At the Speakers' table are Jcrtm J. Reinke, wheeler dealer, who has recently sold Manhattan back to the Indians at a small loss, and Jeff Krausman and Scott Kaufman, the first two humans ever to be joined as Siamese twins, who have since received the joint title of "Mr. Wonderful of 1977".
Shorthand Rate A Plus Plus Plus Diane Willey '68 recently completed a steno time test on which she received the score of 140 words a minuteâ€”a score which falls far above the 100 words per minute which is the requirement for an A in Steno 1. Mrs. Mabel Harken, Diane's stenography teacher, c o mmented. "This was a very remarkable, outstanding job. Learning shorthand is like learning a foreign language and Diane's high dictation speed shows that she is capable of mastering a very difficult subject." When asked how she was able to achieve such a rapid rate, Diane said, "It was made possible by the steno-electronic equipment. The four channel dictation makes it possible for every student to work at her own speed." Diane ranks sixth in her class with an A average. She is a junior leader, a member of Sigma Chi Sigma, and was elected to National Honor Society this year. Diane also received a Spanish Department Award this year for her high ability in Spanish. Earlier in the year she received a third place in the regionals of the Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portugese contest. The NATS? contest was held at the Chicago campus and covered Spanish grammar, comprehension, and vocabulary. In the future Diane plans a career that combines foreign language and secretarial skills.

Unfortunately, rowdies are bound to spoU any event, so John Archibald is taking disciplinary measures against such well-known troublemakers as Bob Wenz, Gail Griffiths, Gary Muka, and Linda Patchett. Roaring into the kiosk and almost knocking John down are the Suzuki Seven, a motorcycle gang of fierce watermelon thieves. Led by Ted "Wild WUd" Whltson, called "Wild " by his friends, other members of the heartless gang include Tom "Lefty" Lynch. Pete "Ruthless" Ranallo, Jeff "Killer" Kroon, and Dave "Legs" Wintergerst, Wild's bodyguard, who has a gun concealed in his crutch. Riding along behind are Wonder Wron Wronski and Dianne "Farina" Broman. Bob Lane is advertising his new barbershop with the help of Bill " P i p " Weurhman and Jack Eichler. Nearby is Don Lossman, world-famous broad jumper, who was last seen vaulting over Linda Boidy, Jeannie Chamberlain, Sue Conforti, Roni Sklba, Sue Scfaneller, and Roxanne Schuessler. Lenwe Lindeman is leading spectators Mary Lou Kilinski, Kris Demehl, Sue Braun, Chris Geisler, and Pat Standa in the throbbing cry of "Go, Golden Boy, Go". Debi Hall, walking on stilts, is having an interesting chat with Bill Murphy's knee, while blushing Randy O'Hare is hesitant to explain her error. The entertainment, anxiously awaited by all, is ready to begin. First on the program is Nitti's Folhes, a rythmic review hy such lovelies as Sandy Drnek, Ivy Letschka, Connie Brandt, and Sallie Sensenbrenner. Rick Seabolt, unfortunately is missing the fun because he is asleep in his carrel. "Basoonist in the Basement", a one-act operetta by Joe Hermann, is about to go onstage. Jack Miller and Edie .Mangun are patching the curtain while Dick Katschke is making last minute script revisions only seconds before the overture, a piccolo solo by MarUyn Conners. Anita Hosford and Don .Anderson, stars of the show, are eagerly passing out autographs signed "Mr. and Mrs. Theatre" to their admiring throng of Meg Williams and Chris Matthiesen. At last comes the climax of the evening. The string quartet, known as "The Mellow Fellows" comes out on stage and its members. Rusty Siebold on
the cello. Bob Simpson with his viola, Charles Sippel in the first and only violin, and last but certainly not least, Ted Solomon on the harp, begin to set up their instruments. As they be- . gin the strains of "The Bush League" Symphony by Gunnar Rutkowsky in honor of Kirk Waberzeck, we hear Kathy Metz giggle in time to the music. Reverend Mark Nordskog and Carol Niemann are doing a mean frug in the comer. Other couples on the dance floor, doing a sedate waltz, are Lew Graham and Jeanie Weinthaler, Terry Johnson and Jim Popp, Gail Swin- " nert4Hi and J. P. Sally, John Pirie and Linda Malby, as Cathy Raimondi and Chris Weinke request the lovely ballad "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." .As the applause dies down, we realize that it is time to leave â€˘ when we hear the first stirring notes of the hymn Kay Watson has composed in honor of the reunion. The authoress is lead-' ing a tearful choral group of Paula Lindgren, Laiuie Dunlop, Marcia Le Sage, Sue Kott, and Julie Johnson in song as Fred Jaeger accompanies them on the Jew's harp. Gregg Neptune's appropriate facial expressions are adding to the audience's appreciative enjoyment. While sadly leaving the scholarship kiosk, first established as a Maine South reaction center by Eileen Heath, we find our . former foreign exchange students, Nitaya Saiubol and Gloria Reyes, standing at the doorway. Asking them, "What impressed you most about this event?", we received the thrilling reply, "Nothing." We know that Georgia Soriuka is to be thanked for her organization of this reunion. Our last glimpse of the kiosk reveals Margie Press and Beth Splinter, Georgia's galley slaves, picking up" the many memos she has written to them. The last sound we hear is the crack of a whip. As we walk to the bus con-' course, we find Bob Landeck cxtoUing the virtues of the statue of Mr. Pool, which Marcia Gibbons has since painted iridescent orange. We regretfully return to the South parking lot, and leaving by the only' open gate, we hear the words. "Let this reMaine in our memories always", as the roar of the Suzuki Seven fades in t h e ' distance. May the forest preserve them forever.
Ralph Childs AFS Rep, to France Ralph Childs '68 was recently notified that he will represent Maine South as an AFS Americans Abroad student for the summer in France.

Senior Standouts Represent Ten Major Sports Tom Lynch If one was to take a poll to determine the one senior football player contributing most to Maine South grid success, the overwhelming majority would vote for Tom Lynch. Although football season is many months passed , most fans still remember the flashy halfback whose fortunes could often determine the all around fate of the Hawks on any given oc casion. In fact to Tom it must have seemed at times that he was singularly responsible for the success or failure of the Maine South offense. But win or lose Lynch's rugged attitude combined with his natural ability helped this fine halfback stack up more yardage than any other player on the squad. Tom's great open field running won him all conference acclaim from all over the Central Suburban League as well as at home where he thrilled Maine South crowds with his long break-away runs from scrimmage. At 170 pounds Lynch rated as one of the smallest backs in the league, but on the other hand opponents rated him as one of the hardest hitters. His speed wasn't great, but at the same time he was gone once he got into the open. Desire explaines the first paradox, for Lynch overcame lack of size with an attitutde which resembled a sort of belligerance against the opposition. His refusal to be tackled was often illustrated by second and third efforts which netted important first downs even after he seemed hopelessly trapped behind the line of scrimmage. Playing behind an inexperienced offensive line, Lynch's talents for finding the holes seem even more greatly appreciated. As for speed, Tom displayed natural moves which made up for any lack of swiftness afoot. Bob Benedict Cross Country's most valuable runner this year was Bob Benedict, who also has the honor of being the most valuable senior on the squad. Bob won this award because he is the threeyear letter man who has led the Hawk harrier-s to two conference championships in the last three years.
Last year, as a junior. Bob was the captain of the cross country team. He also was the conference champion while as a senior he finished second in individual times. Bob is also a two-year letter man in track where he is used in the distance events. In points this year Bob finished second to John Weiss. He was on the mile relay team that went down state â€˘vith John. This year. Bob has been used by Mr. Ed Smith, track coach, as a utility runner. Bob ran the mile, half-mile. 400-yard dash, and on the mile relay team in some meets, depending on where the points were needed.
ence championship swimming team, and earning a letter besides. In other years Tom has been just as successful. He was elected as an All-American swimmer on two medley relay teams for the last two years. The medley relay team of this year not only won Tom allAmerican recognition, but won the State championship also. Tom finished fourth in the point competition in 1965-1966, and this year he earned 82Vi to earn the honor of being the senior with the most points. Tom also holds the varsity record for the 100-yard breaststroke with the time of 1:07.1.
Bob Simpson Bob Simpson was the definite choice for the most outstanding wrestler. Combining muscle with plenty of good moves and a lot of hustle. Bob chalked up the best v,in-loss record on the team with a 15-3-1 mark. In the course of the season, Bub used just about every wrestling move in the book to his advantage. Wrestling the 154-pound circuit. Bob put on such winning displays as 10 to 0, 10 to 4, and & to 2 in addition to several pins. Meet after meet, Simpson came through with key wins to spark up the team. In several meets he was one of the few Hawks to come off the mat victorious. It is interesting to note that during the first part of the season, Simpson wrestled while recovering from a broken hand sustained in one of the early football games. Bob wrestled in his characteristic winning fash ion regardless. In district competition, Simpson placed a respectable third. He was also named the team's most valuable wrestler.
Dick Johnson Dick Johnson qualified as being the outstanding senior gymnast. He worked the side horse during the season. This year, the gymnastics squad consisted of mostly juniors, who did an excellent job. Nevertheless, Dick was one of the team standouts. Coach Riccitelli described Dick as the kind of gymnast who is a great asset to a team. The coach pointed out that Dick would practice what had to be done without a lot of horseplay. Johnson can also be noticed for his great team spirit and above all, his desire to win.
Tom Torgersen Maine South's outstanding senior swimmer award goes to Tom Torgersen. This year, Tom swam the 100-yard breaststroke, and swam the breaststroke leg of the 100-yard medley relay. After coming over to Maine South in his sophomore year, Tom started his senior career off right by being on the 19641965 Des Plaines Valley Confer-
Rusty Siebold Rusty Siebold was Sonthwords' choice for outstanding golfer. He was one of the most consistent golfers on the team and the only senior returning letterman. Rusty served as a leader to the rest of the team. C o a c h Gartner pointed out that Rusty's spirit was a great lift to the team. Mr. Gartner thought that the reason for Siebold's role of leader was due to the fact that Rusty is the only senior letterman on the team. Mr. Gartner explained that this tends to give Rusty a slight edge in experience. Siebold is by far the most consistant golfer on the squad. His score was counted in the team score in every meet. He is the only one on the team that has done this.
Mr. Gartner commented that Rusty would be a great success on any team. Averaging out his scores, Siebold comes up with about 81. His best round this year was a 73 against New Trier West. Jeff Riemer With an abundance of senior talent at both infield and outfield positions on this year's conference championship squad, the choice of one outstanding senior baseball player would seem to be a difficult one. But a second basemen like Jeff Riemer would stand out among any group of players. This slightly built righthander transformed the second base spot from an early question mark to a Hawk strongpoint with his spray hitting and sparkling glovework, Jeff was a 30O hitter throughout most of the season before tailing off to a final batting average of .288 after a late season slump. His club leading total of 24 hits is proof of his value at the leadoff spot where he often led off the ball game by lashing the first pitch for a hit. Even at the leadoff position he tied for third on the team in runs batted in and shared the club lead in triples with Tom Tetlow with three. In the field Riemer was nearly flawless as he handled 53 chances with only 4 errors. His 53 attempts were by far the greatest number of defensive chances on the club and his .93 fielding percentage topped all infield regulars. The combination of these impressive statistics in both the field and at the plate explain the player's selection of Jeff Riemer as most valauble. John Wiess John Wiess is Maine South's star senior trackman. This year. Big John has run the quarter-mile, and was the big reason for both the 880-yard relay team and the mile-relay team going down state to Champaign last May 19 and 20. John has been out for track for the last three years and has lettered in the last two years. This year John was the high scorer for the squad, and many a conference quarter-miler can
describe what the back of John's blond head and the heel's of his purple Tokyo track spikes look like. To add to John's list of accomplishments, since the track team has moved outdoors, he has never been beaten in the quarter mile in dual meet competition. In the Invitational portion of the season, John proved his de-. sire to lead his team to victory. In the Glenbrook North Spartan Relay's, John ran the quartermile in the mile relay in the . time of 51.1 seconds. When the medlay relay was called just 10 minutes later. John had to come back and nm another quarter. John's split of 52.6 seconds showed he had the desire when he finished, but' not much else. John felt very tired that night, so tired he could not walk off the track and had to be carried. Bob Denny Bob Denny, the only starting senior on this year's varsity tennis team, is a two-year letterman in the sport. He received his letters both years while playing second doubles, winning the conference championship both years along with^ his partner. He also partici-' pated in tennis on the FroshSoph level and basketball for three years. Jeff Reinke Jeff Reinke, leader of the varsity basketball team with his> aggressive rebounding and excellent outside shooting, was a leader in school activities as well. President of his class as' a junior and senior, he was also elected to Brotherhood Society and National Honor Society. Lettering two years in basketball and elected captain while a senior, Jeff started as a center on varsity as a junior. He made a transition to forward in his senior year, and his scoring greatly increased, with outstanding performances against Prospect and Niles North. Jeff clin maxed his career in Maine's final game of the season against Notre Dame, when he was called to substitute at center and sunk five quick, successive baskets. He also lead the team in rebounding during his final season.

Netmen Take League Meet In this year's state tennis meet, Maine South was represented by the varsity doubles team of Mike Masoncup '68, and Don Lathrop '68. Mike and Don qualified by taking second place in the district meet, being defeated only by the district champions from Glenbrook South. They were then paired with first place winners from another district, Malottkt and Popâ€˘markoff from Granite City. Mike and Don were victorious in two sets, 6-2 and 6-2. They then advanced to meet Clements and Crawford from New Trier East, only to lose both sets 6-1 and 6-1. These opponents became the eventual state doubles champs. New Trier East also won the state championship. ' In conference the varsity extended its record to five victories and one loss in dual meets as they defeated Niles North 3-2. Mike Masoncup took first singles with set scores of 6-0 and 6-3. Dave Flanagan '68, at second singles, also won in two sets, 6-land 6-3. Bob Shannon
'68, at third singles, lost after going three sets, winning the first, 6-4, then losing 9-7 and 8-6. First doubles, consisting of Don Lathrop '68, and Cliris Hansen '68, won 6-1 and 6-4, while Bob Denny '67, and Roy Martino '68, were defeated at second doubles in three sets, taking the first 6-3, and then losing 6-1 and 7-5. Coach Kent's varsity netmen concluded an excellent season last Saturday when they won first place in the conference meet with 33 points. Mike Maso cup was runner up in first singles, while Bob Shannon, third singles, Don Lathrop and Chris Hansen, first doubles, and Bob Denny and Roy Martino, second doubles, all won conference championships. Both doubles teams played three sets in the finals before winning their championships. Deerfield came in second behind the Hawks with 26 points. Together with the points won at the conference meet. Maine accumulated 53 points for the season.
Senior standout John Weiss runs for South in State Meet at Champaign.
The Frosh-Soph tennis team encored the performance of the varsity as they also took the conference meet, chalking up 34 points and achieving a firstplace finish in the Central Suburban League. First-p l a c e championship.s were won by Fred Henshaw '69, playing first doubles, and Tom Pomorski '69, and Bruce Gjertsen '69, at second doubles. I, Cyndi Gercken, do hereby will my snazzy, shocking pink V-Show costume to some snazzy, shocking pink junior girl who would like to be Missed Amerika 1968. I, Bill Murphy, do hereby will my most valuable possession, "smoking powder" to Dave Larsen. Star of Tomorrow.
hy Gary Muka One hates to end a fine athletic season on an envious note, but when a spwrtswriter begins to speculate on Maine South's athletic promise for next year, the prospects are enough to make anyone green-eyed, let alone a graduating senior. To start the year on the winning side Coach Nyren will take the football field with the biggest, most experienced squad ever assembled at South. Underclassmen who held key positions on this year's squad (and there were many of them) wiU be ready to mature into conference standouts. Size should be in the Hawks favor for a change with names like Butz, Sigmund, Kaiser, and Plessner around, and Tom Tetlow and Tom Spotts, along with sensational Sophomore prospect Dave Larsen, to keep the Hawk backfield going where Tom Lynch left off. In basketball there could be no limit to how far Coach Brady and his varsity cagers could go next season. Led by all conference forwards, Gary Lange and Henry Perez, and by big Dave Butz, the squad already has the nucleus of a great one in both size and skill. Butz showed signs of coming into his own late in the season, and Lange and Perez are great frontcourt basketball players Mike Masoncup and Tom McClayton are slated for the backcourt where they both played regularly at times during the season. Combined with the JV talent that took a conference championship under Coach Schmidt this year. Coach Brady seems to have talent to burn. Names like McGuire, Holden, Larsen and Gibe are ready to step irto most varsity lineps but may have to be satisfied with a spot on the Hawk bench next season. To forget the gymnastic squad in discussing next year would be to neglect one of the greatest potentials in the school. A varsity squad made up almost entirely of juniors this year will be back next year to improve on a second place finish. Coach Ricatelli, who was prob-
ably as surprised as anyone else at the team's strong showing, will be working with an experienced group next year led by such names as Dwane Kelly, Paul Riis and John Davis. In Golf the great Les Matthews will be back to try and bring the State championship to South after this year's third place finish. In swiming the magnificent McCullough brothers, Frank and Ray, will be on hand to challenge state and national records. Its all that a sportswriter could ask for, but instead of being envious, I guess one should just wish next year's athletes good luck and hope that they all live up to their potential.
W e Seniors Bequeath... I, Lenore Lindeman, will to next year's Varsity Cheerleading captain enough Ben-Gay to remedy all the pulled legs, twisted ankles, and sore muscles that may occur at the same time and enough patience to endure the somewhat motley-looking squad at the next game. I, Pat Barcheski, will to one humble and worthy junior, my exquisite carrel overlooking our most esthetic rock garden. I, Rick Steffen, do hereby will my title of "Great Bent One" to Tom (Squatty Body) McClayton, who wishes he could fulfill the requirements. I, Jeff Kendall, will to any senior next year who plays on the JV Football team, nine and one-fourth ounces of splinters gathered from the surface of the bench during the eight games of the '66-'67 season. I, Maureen Fanning, do will to Mrs. Gordon and the future Special Activities Chairman all the joys, sorrows, and excitements of having a three-wheeled flat upon which another prizewinning Pep Club float may be built. I, Ted Solomon, will not will this will to anyone that will will a will next year, will I?
Another Season F inished; Brilliant Outlook Ahead The Hawk varsity baseball squad clinched its second s t r a i g h t Central Suburban League championship last Monday with an 8 to 3 win over Niles. A loss against Niles North on the following day gave the Hawks a 9-2-2 conference record and concluded the season with a final record of 17-3-3. Senior righthander Chuck Richards started the Niles West game being held for the first time on the Hawks home field. He christened the new Maine South diamond with a three hit performance and contributed to his own cause at the plate where he went two for four. Sloppy infield play was largely responsible for a Hawk rally in the second inning when South scored four runs on only one hit to take an early 4 to 0 lead. Niles West however came back to threaten in the remaining following innings until the Hawks opened up with one of their rare power barrages in the fifth and sixth innings. Scott Kaufman led off the fifth with a double to left center and scored later on long double by Richards which cleared the left field fence on one bounce. In the sixth, Randy O'Hare
brought another run across with a tremendous double to left center. Against Niles North, coach
Van Proyen did a little experimenting with his pitching staff at the expense of one game in the final win and loss total.

Mother Duck Turns Art Court Into Maternity Ward South's very own duck is back again in the Art Court, ready to raise another family. She is nesting near one of the walls and has laid four eggs so far. Mrs. Virginia Clausen, secretary to Dr. Watson, was honored last spring with the presence of a duck raising her brood only one foot from her window. She isn't sure if this year's guest is the same duck that inhabited Maine South last year. "I certainly hope so, for those ducks were very dear to me," Mrs. Clausen said. Six photos of the mother and her ducklings are framed on the wall in her office. "Last spring my office was as busy as a maternity ward as teachers went in and out to take a peek at the new mother," she added. To her surprise one Monday morning last year, a duck frantically flew out from the bushes as she opened the drapes. "At
first no one believed me when I told them there was a duck living outside my window," Mrs. Clausen explained. "They had to find out for themselves." Custodians lovingly cared for the nine little ducks and their mama last year, providing them with food and even a little swimming pool to splash in. "This year the mother duck was a little late in arriving. Unfortunately the eggs will not be hatched by the time school is out." Mrs. Clausen added. When the ducks are finally able to care for themselves, the custodians must direct them out of the school area to find a new home. "Last year they tried to direct them through the school corridors and out the front door. The little ducks couldn't quite manage, and kept slipping and sliding on the newly waxed floors," she remarked. After the custodians finally carried the ducks outside, they
stayed on the front pond a few days and then disappeared. "Mother duck was quite a shrew â€” she never stopped yelling at her children." Mrs. Clausen stated. "All of my photos show her with her mouth open." "There was one duck that was weaker than all t h e others," she continued. "While her brothers and sisters were walking within 24 hours, this one couldn't. When the little one finally made it up the steps, all the spectators in my office proudly cheered." Sometimes the ducks would come to the window and look in at Mrs. Clausen. "I was very privileged to have them as guests last year and was hoping they would resume their old home again this year, but they are living near a different waU." Now, in addition to our distinguished moat of colored rocks in the library, we have our own family of ducks.
South's mother duck that inhabited the art court last spring proudly displays her brood. Only questionâ€”how many this year?

Gloria Reyes, Nitaya Saiebol Say Farewell and Thank You
Dear Friends: It is nearly time for me to return home to leave you. I can't tell you how I feel when I think about it. I know only it is sad and happy together. I have to leave my school, Maine South. It was a really great experience and the time moved too fast for me. Since I have been here, I feel like we both exchange something to each other.

I do like having boys in school. In Thailand the boys go to other school. I don't like playing volleyball with the boys. They are too strong, and I am afraid. I wish I could ride my bicycle to school, but you don't do that here. Something different is in Thailand I wear size 48 shoe but here it is just seven and one-half. My language was so different from English. I didn't quite understand everything here, because American use many slang. I have a story so funny that I will never forget. A boy said to me "Hello, Baby." I got mad because I thought he meant I am a little child. I socked his stomach and told him I am not a baby. I was upset about that all day. Mom laughed when she knew that. In V-Show I really had a good time to be with many friends, goof around with them getting to know more and more friends. In ba.sketball team for GRA I had really nice senior friends. Even if I got sick and couldn't go to practice they still say, "never mind." I will never forget the nurse room with the big tea pot, and many of my teacher that were real nice to me. I can't tell how valuable your smiles were, more valuable untU I can't write down in words. They still stay in my heart. I will leave here very soon. I am not sure I will have chance to come again or not. Next Christmas please help me ask Santa Claus to send me an airplane ticket and I will come to see you. Even if it is only one year to me, it is just the most valuable experience or dream. I knew many friends in may hair's colmany friends in many hair's colwould like to say goodbye to everyone from my heart. 1 will miss you always. Think about me sometime even if 1 am not the first person that you think about, but don't forget to include me as the last person. What can I say? Nitaya Saiubol Dear Students: There have been so many interesting experiences for me this year that I cannot really say that there is only one thing that has been more outstanding than the rest. Coming to a school completely different than my own was by itself something special. As I told you in ray speech, my school was a private Catholic school of girls and the
study programs are different. At the beginning it was difficult to get accustimed to it here, and there are still some little things that seem strange to me. I am always asked what impressed me most in the United States. The answer is that nothing really did. I knew almost what to expect because I have studied, read, and heard very much about this country. What 1 did not know before were just small things that only surprised me a little. One thing 1 liked very much is all the clubs and extra-curricular activities that there are in school. There is something for everybody; there are sports,, arts, science, etc. I participated in some of them, and I enjoyed it very much. Student Council was of course the principal thing I participated in, and even though many people criticize it, I think you have a won-, derful Student Council. For The Sound of Music I worked backstage in properties. For the first time I realized how much work was involved to have the sets arranged as beautifully as they were for the play. During V-Show I used to complain for having to stay late for rehearsals. After workuig backstage, I knew that I had been silly in doing it, because the' work done by every member of the crew was much harder an^ required more responsibility, learned a lot from that worB What I liked best was the school itself and all of you students here. I have met many of you, and from each and every one I have nothing but good memories. I am very fond of this school and proud of attending it. It is wonderful to feel that now I am part of the school. During every game in which Maine South participated, I wor-' ried about the winners. Every lime we won I rejoiced as much as everybody else, and every loss made me sad. Now the school year is almost over. I am sure the seniors are happy and sad at the same time. That is also how I feel. Happy to return home and see my family and friends again, but sad because it is the end of high school â€” one step more in my life and a very important one. It also means leaving my .American family, the school, and this wonderful year that you have given me and helped to make a memorable one. Thank you for all, and may God bless you always. Gloria Reyes
