Students To Become International Diplomats The Maine South Social Science Department will again sponsor an International Simulation Conference to be held on May 21. For the past two years, the LAWS Research Foundation has provided research money for the study of world peace. The program is under the supervision of Mr. Eric Edstrom and Mr. Timothy Little. Simulation is a complex construction of a make-believe world. Each of the 25 nations consists of 5 student participants. The Head of State is the highest official in the nation. He is concerned with developing foreign and domestic policies and selecting means to carry out these policies. The Foreign Affairs Administrator advises the Head of State on all matters concerning foreign affairs. Each country also has a Foreign Affairs Diplomat who handles all relations with other nations. The Official Domestic Leader is responsible for the internal affairs of the nation. The final member of each group is the Domestic Opposition Leader. He heads the opposition party and tries to undermine the policies and actions of the Head of State in order to gain popular support. Simulation was utilized as a result of work done at Northwestern University. Last year Maine Township high schools tested materials to be published on the use of simulation. This year the material appears in a document written by Dr. Harold Guetzkow of Northwestern and

published by the Science Research Associates of Chicago. Mr. Edstrom commented, "The conference is held for the purpose of testing new materials and helping the students to learn about international relations first-hand." The May 21 conference will include simulation sessions, a possible tele-lecture from the United Nations, and a research evaluation conducted by the steering committee. Also featured will be the World Press, hourly news broadcasts over the public address system, and the organization and development of an international organization. Each nation will utilize areas in the outside corridor. There will be rooms provided for the World Press, conferences, the Central Broadcasting System, and the International Organization. The major planning for the conference has been done by a steering committee consisting of Sue Olsen '67, Ralph Berke '67, and Jeannie Hosey '67. They are responsible for the development, operation, and instruction for the conference. Mr. Edstrom concluded, "It is hoped that at the end of the session, the participants will understand the operation of foreign policy and see more constructively the decisions made by those in authority who must deal with the real world."

Bill Murphy, newly elected president of Student Council, and Georgia Soruika, secretary, expressed their feelings about their recent election to office and some of their hopes and plans. "I really can't say how happy I am at having won the presidency, and I would like to heartily and sincerely thank all those supporters who helped make my campaign a success," stated Bill. He especially wishes to thank the Friend family, the Boidy family, the Press family, and the Berger family for supplying him with headquarters to work at. "I also appreciated the extra bonuses (Three free meals) that were provided." Bill also extends his thanks to Rick Kilinski '66 and Peggy Jacobs '66 for making fine speeches in his behalf, and to Pat Pierce '67, Peggy Jacobs '66, Sue Olsen '67, Sandy Guzzetta '66, Peg Ratliffe '67, Bart Christiansen '67, the members of his skit, and everyone else who worked to make his campaign fun and a big success. . . . Bill Thanks voters He feels especially indebted to the student body for the support. "My biggest thanks go out to every voter who showed confidence in me and has allowed me to do something for him and the school through Student Council." Some people have said to Bill, "Now that you've won the election, the excitement, fun, anxiety, and work are over and are merely memories." He feels, however, that the most exciting and challenging parts of the election are still ahead. "Each move or project for a better council will be a minor 'election' in itself. I won't know the final outcome of this next major campaign until next year at this time." Bill is looking forward to the support and aid of Jeff Krausman, Mark Romness, and Colleen Lynch next year. "I'm sure that SC will desire their talents and enthusiasm as was shown by their excellent campaigns for office." Bill's immediate plans for SC include meetings with the new SC representatives, chairmen, and with Dr. Watson. He plans to organize an evaluation and suggestion meeting for next year's Council in the very near future. Before summer vacation begins he would also like to meet with the newly elected committee chairmen and speficically work out a plan for Council's activities next year. In

Gossip Problem Seizes South By Judy Projahn This issue I would like to give you a short commentary on a widespread subject, gossip. This subject is getting to be so widespread that it could be classified as an epidemic. As teenage trends are always being investigated, I feel this one bears looking into. How many times have you heard or used the phrase, "Don't tell anyone I told you this, but . . ."? If you're anything like me, it's beginning to sound like a broken record. Secrets are a thing of the past. Confidential knowledge has become community knowledge in countless cases. Rumors are the ravage of reputations. The complaints concerning these problems are numerous, but the solutions are few. I suppose you could •withdraw and

refuse to associate with anyone. This would undoubtedly cure the communications catastrophe. A more effective answer would be not saying a n y t h i n g you wouldn't want repeated. I realize this would eliminate about half the conversation, but it would also eliminate the embarrassment of being confronted with some little rumor you have perpetrated. Gossip and rumors are bad. There is no in-between about the situation. The only way to stop them is right where they start, with each and every one of us. While you may have a perfectly fantastic piece of news about somebody, just remember he has probably got some fantastic piece of news about you . . . which reminds me, don't tell anybody I told you this, but . . .

a meeting with Dr. Watson, Bill wishes to discuss ideas for next year, including the improving of SC-administration and student-administration relations. . . . Plans to sleep In between meetings and SC planning, Bill plans to catch up on all of his lost sleep and back homework, "especially in Mr. Craddock's class." Bill has been looking forward to the state convention being held this weekend. "I hope it will give me insight into how to better lead SC and also give me ideas for next year." "I am very excited and happy to have the honor of being next year's Student Council secretary," were the feelings expressed by Georgia Soruika, who is looking forward to a busy year and hopes the SC can succeed in accomplishing many things for the school. . . . Georgia Thanks Helpers "I can never hope to thank everyone who worked to make the campaign a success," Georgia continued, "but would especially like to acknowledge my campaign managers, callers, and the people who had headquarters for me." She thanks Terry Johnson '67, Beth Splinter '67, Betty Paulas-

kas '66, Kathy Metz '67, and Bob Holz '66, for their "endless encouragement and support. They were just great! "Georgia added. "The unbelievable enthusiasm and cooperation of Judy Projahn '67, and all the 'Yellow Brick Road' kids will never be forgotten." In conclusion, she expressed her thanks to everyone who voted. She feels that their support ultimately made election week a success, not only for the winners, but for SC on the whole. She stated that two out of every three students voted. . . . Enthusiasm To Help SC Georgia hopes that the "enthusiasm, cooperation, and understanding" the s t u d e n t s showed for all the candidates" will be continued next year in supporting SC. She also feels it is the responsibility of all interested students to take part in electing the future SC representatives. This will insure the best representation possible for them in SC. She concluded, "Next year, scheduling, and interest, and with the proper organization support of the entire school, I think we can all look forward to an active and productive year."

Afterwords

Does Bond Issue Failure Show Lack of Concern? The recent defeat of the bond issue for School District 207 could result in a cut-down on funds allocated to Maine South. Classes could be enlarged and some languages could be dropped unless the school board decides to go on deficit spending. If these economy measures are taken, the quality of education at South may well deteriorate, despite all efforts of the board, administration, and teachers to keep standards high. In an era of increasing competition in all areas of life, we cannot afford to allow the education that we are receiving to slip in quality in any area. Our efforts to keep up standards in the Maine Township need to be especially effective now, because in surrounding towns the high schools are among the main concerns of the people. New Trier, Evanston, and Lyons are sources of great pride to their communities and provide a great drawing point for new citizens because of the outstanding achievements of their students. And their communities do not hesitate to give these schools money. Even Lyons, which is in an area less prosperous than ours, is amply supplied with funds. Yet we are not. Our community has just denied us. What has caused this denial? Is it that we do not deserve good educations? That we have done something wrong? Or is it that our parents are just not interested enough in us to go out and vote "yes" on a bond issue that has failed because every one against it does not hesitate to run (not walk) to the polls and vote "no"? If they deny us now, we may lose chances later on in life because of this denial. The high school years are the only time that money can buy good educations so cheaply and contribute so much to the image and appeal of the community by doing this. Our township is losing a good bargain by voting down the bond issues. They'll be sorry someday. The only problem is that so will we.

Letter to the Editor

NHS Initiation: Not One Came! Dear Editor: As a new member of the National Honor Society, I naturally attended the initiation ceremony on Friday, April 22. Approximately 115 students who had been chosen by the faculty for their qualities of leadership, scholarship, service, and character were present; teachers and parents of the students were also invited. Fifteen times as many students as teachers were there. The only teacher I saw was Mrs. Aida Farmer, sponsor of the society. The faculty knew about this event nearly a month in advance, so why didn't they come?

If the teachers can't be bothered to attend a two-hour ceremony and reception recognizing the supposed leaders of the school, why should the students bother to put forth the effort? The installation ceremony was to acknowledge the achievement that teachers encourage, but the teachers seem to be more willing to acknowledge the work of vandals. I am requesting that my name be withheld. I would like every teacher to think that one of his students may have written this. I would like every teacher to feel ashamed of his irresponsibility and lack of interest in the students.

Varsity Baseballers Tied For First Place by Derek Gilna The Spring sports are now in full swing and it is more than apparent at this stage that the Varsity baseball team is capable of giving any team in conference a run for its money. Maine South has won five, lost one, and tied one, and is two and one in conference, losing a

tough game to Glenbrook North. . . . Four-way Tie At this state Deerfield, Niles West, Glenbrook North, and Maine are all tied for first. This week's action will go a long way in determining who will come out at the top of the heap. Tonight at 4:30 the Hawks will host Niles North at Edison

Park, located on Western south of Devon. On Monday the Park Ridgians will meet Deerfield in another home game. Tuesday night's action at Niles West will be the third game of the series, and last but not least, comes the rematch with Glenbrook North. Glenbrook North, although a strong team, caught the Hawks on an off day the last time around, dropping them 5 to 0. Rest assured that Maine will be ready for them this time. The excitement will start at 4:30. Thus iar in the seven games they have played, the Maine squad has shown an excellent pitching staff, led by senior John Spiggos. John came within an inning of throwing a complete no-hitter against Glenbrook South last week. In his other conference victory John allowed only two cheap hits. All of the other hurlers on the staff are also capable of coming up with the big win. The defense has also sparkled overall. Dave Strom made an excellent catch last week, highlighting the team's unwillingness to let in nuisance runs through poor fielding. Errors

are normally the bane of even a good high school team, but thus far South has been lucky in this department. The only dark spot in this otherwise bright picture is several of the regular's hitting slumps. Auggie Matejzel, Dave Strom, and Russ Gibe thus far lead the team with batting averages above .300. When some of the other players start hitting up to capacity Maine's chances

for a conference crown will be greatly enhanced. After conference comes Districts and Regionals. Maine East (revenge anyone?), Notre Dame, and Ridgewood are the other teams in our District, and none are very formidable. Lest we forget, though, remember that no game is never in the bag, especially if the student body is indifferent to the outcome.

Dick Hood slides safely into second against Glenbrook South.

Hawks Drop Deerfield, Glenbk. South: Fall to Glenbrook North Having completed their nonconference competition with an unbeaten record the Hawks are presently wrapped up in a rugged conference s c h e d u l e which has already seen South win two games out of the first three. . . . Conference Opener John Spiggos went all the way for a 3 to 2 victory over Deerfield in the conference opener. The senior starter gave up only two hits and one walk in a splendid performance. D a v e Strom, Russ Gibe, and Auggie Matejzel lashed out two hits apiece. Tom Dewar drove in the winning run in the eighth inning with a single to left. On the following occasion the Hawks were blanked 5 to 0 on a three hit effort by Glenbrook North's Brubaker. The Hawk attack was confined to only three scattered singles by Gibe, Strom and Bob Holz. Hawk hurlers were touched for seven hits and four walks. . . . Win Over Glenbrook In their most recent contest the Hawks walked off with a 2 to 1 win at the expense of Glenbrook South, strong in basketball but weak in baseball. This close game was one of the finest of the year, each team getting only two hits in a scoreless tie that was finally broken in the eighth inning. Spiggos had pitched no hit baseball for seven consecutive innings going into the top of the eighth. Glenbrook then scored one run on two hits and a passed ball to go ahead, leaving South with one more chance to keep alive. In an all out effort to back the fine performance of their pitcher, the Hawks went on to tie the score and then win the game on a single by Russ Gibe in the eighth. The victory was the second conference triumph for Spiggos, who owns both of South's conference wins. In the early non-conference action the Hawk nine rolled up easy victories in their first three contests before meeting a worthy opponent. . . . Spiggos Again In the first game it was senior John Spiggos blanking East

Leyden on a three hit shutout. The winning pitcher aided his own cause when he tripled and scored in the fourth inning. In the second contest Dick Hood was the winning pitcher victorious over the Forest View Falcons 8 to 2. Hood gave up only 1 hit in the four innings he pitched before retiring in favor of Carlos Maningas. Carlos lost the shutout in the fifth on an error. Randy O'Hare, who came to the plate in three consecutive innings, went two for three and led the attack with two runs batted in. . . . Victory Over Viator The 6 to 3 victory over St. Viator in the next game is deceiving in that Hawk pitching gave up only one hit. The trouble developed in the fifth inning when St. Viator combined their only hit of the game with five walks and a three run inning which started and concluded their scoring for the day. Rick Kilinski, Dave Strom, and Chuck Coad each had two hits for the winning Hawks with

Auggie Matejzel and Strom each getting two RBI's. Spiggos was relieved by Richards in that shakey fifth inning and continued with shutout ball the rest of the way. The next outing had to be termed South's only pre-season disappointment. The Hawks battled Wheeling to a 6 to 6 tie and the whole game might be summed up in the totals which showed Rick Kilinski and Carlos Maningas plagued with control trouble. South had to come from behind to tie the game.

Tennis Team Now 3 - 3 ; Meet Maine East and West Saturday The Varsity Tennis t e a m ended its pre-conference competition with a 3 and 3 record. Yesterday the squad opened its conference season with a dual meet against Glenbrook North. Next week South will go against Glenbrook South and Niles West and move into Districts May 7.

Cindermen Go Outdoors Seek Second Title The Outdoor track season started with a 69 to 49 victory over Wheeling and the Varsity trackmen may be off to add the Outdoor season to their Indoor Conference Champs title. In upcoming weeks the Hawk trackmen will be put to a real test in the Spartan and Maine East Relays. Tonight, the Spartan Relays will see twelve schools and South is expected to be among the top three. The boys themselves want first place. Next Friday at Maine East, the top schools in the state will be on hand, including Evanston, defending Champs. Coach Kilcullin, d i s t a n c e coach, said that the Varsity team has a good chance but will have to watch out for Niles North and Deerfield who are not out of contention for the title. Both schools did not give South much room at the Conference meet.

The perfect throw from catcher Kaufman is in first baseman Bob Holz's glove and this Glenbrook South player is out by a step.

One of the strongest areas has been the distance runners. Rich Syverson '66, was the conference mile Champ while Bryant Murphy '66, took second in the 880-yard run. The sprint relay team and Ed Ward added first places in the relays, high, and low hurdles, while Gordy Williams '66, took second in both the pole vault and broad jump. Coach Kilcullin said if the boys keep performing the way they have been, the Hawks have a good chance for the Conference title. On the Frosh-Soph level, the little Hawks were third in Conference but left their mark with Don Seelig '68, the 880 champ and Randy McClure '68, the mile champ. These two runners plus Cris Zei '68, have been moved to Varsity and have started their way toward their letter.

In the first meet of the season, Maine came out second in competition with three other schools. South finished ahead of Wheaton and Argo, but was beaten by a strong Lyons team. . . . Meet Maine East Maine will participate in its second big multi-school meet tomorrow, meeting Maine East, Maine West, and Elgin. Maine West is the most formidable of the opponents, possessing an excellent Argentine player and the normal home court advantage. After losing to Prospect and Niles East by identical scores of 3 to 2, the netmen came back to beat Palatine by the score of 3 to 2. . . . Lost at Prospect In the Prospect match, Mike Masoncup, holding down first singles, lost as did Dave Knuth at second singles. Dave Flanagan at third singles picked up the first Hawk point and the first doubles team of Bill Osterland and Dick Schneider also emerged victorious. S e c o n d doubles players Doug Dypold and Bob Denny were not so fortunate, however. Niles East, led by stateranked Mark Bishop, also proved to be tough. Masoncup lost, Knuth won, and Flanagan lost. First doubles of Osterland and Schneider came out on top, but second doubles of Denny and Dypold lost. . . . Palatine Falls Maine beat Palatine, Mike Masoncup, Dave Flanagan, and second doubles of Lathrop and

Denny emerging victors. Knuth and the first doubles were edged out in close matches. Sophomores are a big factor in Maine tennis this season; Mike Masoncup, and Dave Flanagan are both sophomores and the frosh-soph team, carrying on in the tradition of last year when only one match was lost all year, has yet to suffer a loss. The Hawks now go into conference competition with the team positions fairly well determined. Masoncup, Knuth, and Flanagan will continue at first, second, and third singles, respectively. . . . First Doubles At first doubles we find the winningest competition in Maine tennis this year. Bill Osterland, the squad's only returning letterman, and Dick Schneider thus far are 5 and 1 on the season. Lathrop and Denny look to continue at second singles. As far as the team's conference chances, that Maine should not be seriously challenged for the conference title, the team thus far has encountered the toughest competition with good success and the rest of the season could never be as hard as Evanston. . . . Varsity Golf Varsity golfers squared their non-conference record at 1 and 1 with a 166 to 172 win over Wheeling. The team, under the guidance of Mr. Gartner will go against Notre Dame today at 4.
