June 6, 1966
A Look At the Future: Would You Believe...? I was trembling with excitement as I approached cafeteria C-147 where the twenty-year reunion of the class of '66 was being held. Immediately evident w e r e Tom Malik and Bill Fitch, who were picketing the cafeteria with signs reading "Reunions are conformity." As you probably know, Tom Malik, after a long courtship, has married his umbrella; and he and his wife have brought along all their little parasols. Upon entering the cafeteria, I could immediately see that elaborate preparation had gone into making it appear just as we remembered it. Caron Tiberi and her expert committee, Rose Kortas, Kathy Soales, Jackie Overbeck, a n d Bill Ikler, decorated it for the occasion. Half-filled milk cartons, lunch bags, and various other kinds of garbage had been carefully arranged under the tables. The seat of each chair was decorated with chewing gum and spilt milk, and the gayly decorated garbage cans and tantalizing aroma of Parmesian cheese gave the reunion an especially homey atmosphere. I arrived just in time to hear the last words of Greg Knudson's opening speech. He had just boomed the immortal "Vote for Jeff." Sue Bradford, official hostess for the occasion, was lovingly greeting all the guests and making them feel at home, while Karen Decanini mumbled, "You're such a sweetie" to anybody who would listen. My attention was first attracted by weird noises coming from a small group assembled under a table in the corner. Upon further investigation, I found that it was Rich Fess conducting a seance for Sara Mellen, Terry Maloney, Sue Turley, Carole Zielinski, and Diane Reporto in order to contact the spirit of Ray Matthies who had died of peroxide poisoning, while Sue Sieber was singing "Claudia" to the tune of "Gloria." Linnea Priest, who was also with the group was trying to contact the realm of the dead by reading one of her famous poems about death to the accompaniment of Ron Pahnke on the bongos. Bill Crooker, head dietician at Maine South, was in charge of refreshments, but Suzanne Geremia, Sue Gunn and Cindy Loew, who never refuse free food, were eating anyway. Peggy Bussert and Judy Atkins were pushing their "homemade" elderberry wine, but most of the guests were strangely hesitant to accept. Refusing the wine most vehemently were the Kool-aid kids, Jiggs Cunningham, Bart Sheard, Greg Bushelle, and Craig Henderson. Our class has certainly turned

out many notables. Senator D. Alan Harris was discussing (?) with Cherie Hill his upcoming campaign speech to the Sixth Annual Convention of Religious Enthusiasts, which is headed by Bill Rizzo. Dick Dean, Marsha Mountain, Carol Koulos, Bonnie Buderus, Cindi Brown, Sharon Navratil, Chuck Doubler, Linda Krettler, Jill Conway, Karen Meyer, Dave Pirie, Janette Harstick, Ted Gregory, Elizabeth Smith, Chris Wuehrman, and Carol Quick had formed a repertoire group and were still trying to get Wally to check it out. Sue Henkin, Peggy Jacobs, Bunny Parnell, Chris Ryg, Barb Schultz, and Caren Karpiak were prominent members of t h e school board and were trying to push through a regulation allowing co-educational gym in the forest preserve. The entertainment, directed by Sue Gaskill, was spectacular. A sentimental welcoming speech written by Dave Knuth was stirringly delivered by Betty Parkhurst. Opening the show were Greg Ziols and Sam Bruscato who presented a magnificent Flamenco dance choreographed by Jan Goble. Dave Mallow, next on the program, amazed even the most skeptical by pulling Joel Murdy out of his hat. The climax of the show was a rousing rendition of Sergi Prokoviev's Opus 32 in D Minor performed by Dave Anderson on the Jew's harp, Chris Scarpelli playing the kazoo, Gary Erhardt swingin' out on the gut bucket, Jim Richmond pounding the garbage can, Jane Klancnik on the washboard, and John Merz keeping time on the sandpaper blocks. Giving an extra flair to the music were Maggie Friend and Nancy Sullivan who were pre-

senting an impressionistic watusi on the table. Margo Diamond, Sylvia Domaratius, Donna Hood, Linda Ladin, and Bobbie Lambrecht were on another table teaching their new pompom routine to Terry Cotteleer, Al Parks, Rennie Smith, Fritz Zeisberg, and George Cantonis. Notably absent from the gogo groups was Margi Grant, who was participating in the famous Miss Post Toasties Pageant. The talents of the class were not confined to those of the entertainment world, but encompassed many diverse areas. Working in a near-by factory were Larry< Glaug, Ed Walsh, Al Johnson, Jim Manzelmann, and John Naatz, who were employed by George Cantonis to sew sequins on the costumes for his flea circus. Mary Fisher congratulated Martha Mosher on having received her B.A., B.S.N., M.S., M.M.E., M.A., and A.B. degrees and working on her PH.D. in Macedonian Culture. Leslie Anderson, reknowned nuclear physicist, had recently perfected a method of reassembling the atom that Einstein had split. Chris "Stilts" Headly had become the center of the American Women's Olympic Basketball Team. Linda Lucas, who was running a used car lot, was discussing with Liz Buzas a trade in with her Flammy. Donna Pomeraning had tried to turn in a matched set of West Point plebes for the next year's models, but she could not agree on a price. Tim Nillis, Glen Woerz, Andy Frano, and Wes Hendrikson, were known as the "Dirty Old Men", a string quartet playing strictly classical music. Tony Halda, an English professor, was helping Kathy Dewar brush up on her Shake-

speare. Meanwhile Steve White, top juvenile officer of this area, was questioning Sandy Guzetta, Tom Dewar, and Eleanor "Cookie" Florence about the vicious slaying of the ducks on the Maine South pond. I was surprised to see that Frank Arrigoni had become bald. Jamie Metzger was trying to sell him Gro-A- Hair, her own special brand of hair restorer. Karl Tinghino, who had just pinned his 180th girl, had broken the long standing national record.Augie Matjzel, Ron Grove Doug Robertson, Bob Holz, Joe Cram, Terry Harmon, and Greg Byrniczka, reminiscing over the old M-Club days, were making Mike Sarcia push against the wall and scream, "The walls are falling." Nearby, Joann Engelke was modeling boots that came to her neck for Barb Aman. The boots were from "Boots by Bock," a very exclusive fashion house. The highlight of the evening were girls' and boys' beauty contests. Among the contestants in the girls' contest were Katie Huff, Betty Paulaskas, Chris Swanson, Donna Hodd, and Marilyn Richardson. The lucky judges were Derek "Harpo" Gilna, Jim McClure, Jim Reider, John Mosher, and Tom Glogr. Roger Greene had just skiied in on time to take part in the judging. Tom Devrane, mildmannered reporter, was covering the story for the Daily Planet. Included among the bevy of beauties for the boys' contest were Louis Hardacre, Paul Burr, Dave Strom, Dennis Raffaelli, Al Thorsen, Burt Glass, Mike Petell, Dick Hood, Paul Vollmers, Dick Lizzy, and last but not least, Blozy. Cathy Daly and Janine Fentiman were judging from the vantage point of their motorcycles. As the evening drew to a close, we were all anxiously awaiting the announcement of
the winners. The special awards were presented first by Diane Link, editor of Mad Magazine. Receiving the award for the most original dress was Jane Page, who wasn't really wearing a dress, but had wrapped her hair around herself twelve times. The award for the most successful graduate was given to Jim Sparks, who has taken over for Hugh Hefner. The winner of the boys' beauty contest was Paul Vollmers, who earlier this year had received the title of "Mr. America". There was no winner announced for the girls' beauty contest due to the judges' violent disagreement which ended with Roger Greene's skis being broken. The evening was climaxed when Ray Rozny lead the group in a rousing chorus of "Hail to the Hawk" which brought tears to the eyes of many, especially Marybeth Gaudette. Then as the lights began flickering on and off we knew it was time to go. Nancy Reinhardt, Chris Rojek, Chris Headly, Jackie Ciulla, and Sue Wells were stationed at the door to hand out souvenir corsages of algae from the pond. As I walked from the building, I was suddenly saddened at the thought of never seeing Maine South again. I found, however, that my fears were in vain, for when I reached my car I found a parking ticket and a note saying that I was to appear in Student Court the following Tuesday. As I contemplated the ticket, which was given because the second tread of the left rear tire was less than 5.96 centimeters from the line, I realized that Maine had not changed in twenty years. It had remained indestructible in the march of time and if I may quote from the June 7, 1965 edition of Southwords, the forest has "preserved it forever."
English Dept. Purchases Britannica Lecture Films A breakthrough against the usual lectures took place this spring when Maine South, East, and West purchased 29 Encyclopedia Britannica films on the humanities. The films, tracing the literary heritage of Western man, will aid the art, drama, and English departments. Mr. Marian Davis, English department chairman, said, "These films are the finest aids that we have had. They are a stimulant to the student as well as the teacher." The films include Our Town and Hamlet, films on the Greek tragedies, Aristotle, Dickens, the theater and the arts. Two new series of films added to the collection are Huck Finn and

Macbeth. Teachers report that student responses to these films have been excellent. Previously rented, these films were difficult to schedule. Now located in the district, the films will be easily accessible to classes. English students at all levels *. will be able to view the films. "These films are informative; they present a good solid view with supporting evidence. These ' films are more than a supplement, they are a stem of ideas and direction. The money for the films was well spent," said Mr. Gene Haas, A d v a n c e d Placement teacher, who has just shown his classes the films on Hamlet.

ly team to repeat as conference champs. At first singles, sophomore Mike Masoncup finished second in conference behind Greg Peterschmidt of Deerfield. Dave Flanagan, another sophomore, also finished second in conference behind another Deerfield player. Senior Dave Knuth capped four years of tennis competition by taking the third singles championship, 6 to 4 and 6 to 0, as did Bill Osterland and Dick Schneider at first singles. . . . Osterland Top Senior The conference win for Bill and Dick was a fitting climax to a year in which they have chalked up the best team record. Bill was the top performer, chalking up an 18 and 4 ledger overall in both singles and doubles competition. When teamed with Dick he totaled up a 16 and 4 record. Junior Bob Denny and sophomore Don Lathrop took the conference top spot at second singles when they defeated Niles North 6 to 1 and 10 to 8. . . . Frosh-Soph Tops The frosh-soph team also cap-
Varsity Golfers Take Conference; John Places in State Tourney The Varsity golf team remained undefeated to bring the conference golf championship to Maine South. The team had an already predicted good year. Besides winning the conference crown, the team took a second in district and placed a golfer in the state meet on May 19 and 20. The team's overall record was 12 and 0 and 6 and 0 in conference. Steve Johnson remained the low scorer this year and took 17th in State. Steve was first in conference taking the title of Medalist. In the conference meet, Steve had a score of 76 for a first.
Another golfer who had a good year was Rusty Siebolt, '67, who showed his talents with a remarkable 100 in the conference meet. In the last two conference meets, South beat Conant 170 to 180 and won by forfeiture to Notre Dame. In the Conant meet, juniors Dick Wenz, Bob Seidel, and Cliff Haka with the help of sophomore Less Matthews turned in good performances. Seniors S c o t t Candrian, George Yost, and Scott Pitt were also a great help this year. The two Scotts shot an 84 and 83 respectively in District to finish their four years of Maine golf.
Bob Benedict, John Weiss, and Rick Syverson took seconds for Maine in their respective events. The relay team, consisting of Bruce Zintz, Dave Wintergerst, Bryant Murphy, and John Weiss, covered the mile distance in a fine 3:32. Gordie Williams captured the broad jump championship with a leap of 20 feet, 5 inches. . . . Butz Is Runner-up Freshman Dave Butz continued his precocious performances by taking the runner-up slot in the discus, as did Bob Benedict and John Weiss in the 180 and 440 yard runs, respectively. Seniors Ed Ward and Rick Syverson continued their standout performances. Rick added a second in the mile run to cross country and indoor mile championships. Ed took seconds in the 120-yard hurdles and in the 180-yard low hurdles.
Writer Congratulates Athletes, Chides Sports Fans by Derek Gilna It finally hit me last week that these would probably be the last words I would ever write for Southwords. It is with mixed emotions of sadness, nostalgia, happiness and not a little fatigue that I look upon events of 1966. The varsity baseball team deserves all the credit possible for putting Maine South on the Illinois sports map in only its second year of competition. Until now, many unfair things have been said about senior athletics, but the fact remains that recently most of the breaks have gone against us. . . . Heart, Not Size Key The football team, lacking size but making up for this lack by pure heart on the part of key individuals, made a credible showing after many students lost interest in their efforts. The basektball team worked
under the disadvantage of a tough early schedule and was forced to go out to prove itself to the fans after early losses. Despite a loss to Glenbrook South opening its conference schedule, the team roared back and, in a game never to be forgotten by those who witnessed it, defeated a fired-up Titan team on its own court by two points. After the upset at Niles that cost us a tie for first in conference, the fans once again lost interest—as they did after the Maine East loss. No one was more disappointed than the team itself, but it got little sympathy from many fans. . . . Strong Finish The baseball team started with hopes much the same as those held by the basketball team at the start of their season. Despite all-around good play, the team's lack of success against Glenbrook North formed

Trackmen Third in CSL; Ward Sixth in State The Maine South varsity track team climaxed a highly successful season last Saturday by taking a third in the outdoor meet held at Glenbrook South, Mr. Smith's boys piled up .42 points to finish behind firstplace Deerfield and host school Glenbrook South. Previous to this the Hawks were four and one in conference dual meets, but the placing is determined by the results of the conference meet. . . . Ward at State In the state meet, senior cinderman Ed Ward finished in sixth place in the 120-yard high hurdles with a time of 14.6 seconds. Ed also qualified for state in the lows, but failed to reach the finals. In the conference meet Gordie Williams and the mile relay team took the only first for the Hawks. Dave Butz, Ed Ward,
an unfavorable impression on many South fans, many of whom had not—and have n o t seen any other but that 9 to 2 shellacking of our Hawks on their worst day of the season. Just as our football and basketball team had, the baseball team kept trying. In tournament play the pegs began to fall into the proper holes. Once again people came to the games—to support a winner. In reality the success of the team and their uphill fight to Peoria came not so much from fan support as from pure guts. It was the result of hard efforts which in other sports have gone largely unnoticed. . . . Fan Support An I'm not just talking about football and basketball, either. A little fan support does wonders, as Maine showed in the second Maine-Glenbrook basketball game. No matter what the sport, my hat goes off to all
athletes, and non-athletes too, who had the guts to keep plugging when the going got tough and the fans lost interest. My hat also goes off to the baseball team, which has shown what comes of hard work and deserved breaks. I'd like to thank all the coaches and players for all the valuable help they gave me, especially Mr. Brady. G a r y Muka, John McCallum, R a y Rozny, and Dan Pittman who deserve credit for lightening the load on my shoulders. . . . Last Will To Gary Muka, next year's sports editor, I leave a year's supply of midnight oil, in the hope he does not have to use it as much as I. I also leave him a five foot samurai sword, for chastizing recalcitrant girl editors. I also leave Gary Mr. Beatty, the best friend a struggling sports editor ever had.
Coaches Cite Top Senior Athletes
After Ridgewood tied it in the fifth, Russ Gibe put it away for the Hawks in the seventh with a run-scoreing single to right. Spiggos got the win. The Hawks advanced to regional competition where they met Holy Cross. The crusaders proved to be a soft touch for Van Proyen's nine as South
Knuth Wins 1st, 2cd Doubles; Tennis Men Conference Champs The varsity tennis team, following in the footsteps of last year's championship team, became the fourth varsity team to cop conference honors. The netmen finished five and zero in conference dual meet competition and cinched the crown with a first place finish in last Saturday's conference m e e t . The Hawks finished second in the district but did not qualify anyone for state competition. The team edged out secondplace Deerfield 33 to 23 (out of a possible 40) to become the on-

As South's second year of progress draws quickly to a close. Southwords again cites eight Hawk athletes for their individual achievement in the field of sports. These are some of the standout performers responsible for bringing conference championships to Maine while exhibiting the kind of sportsmanship that brought the Milton Sprunger Award to South. . . . Dick Hood An all-around athlete, Dick Hood lettered in football, gymnastics, and baseball during his junior and senior year. As a senior he was co-captain of the varsity football team and received honorable mention on the all-conference selections. In gymnastics he captained the varsity in his senior year. In the conference meet he took a fifth on rings, fourth on high bar, sixth on parallel bars, and fourth all-around. After doing well in Districts, Dick Hood took a fourteenth place on rings in State. . . . Rick Kilinski Rick Kilinski this year climaxed four years in baseball and basketball. This year Rick was chosen the basketball team's captain and was one of Maine's three all-conference selections. The "out" man, Rick still managed to compile the third highest scoring average on the team. In baseball Rick last year pitched and played but this year mainly confined his talents to the hot corner where he was a regular all season. . . . Greg Knudson Greg Knudson, this year's top swimmer, was elected most valuable player on this the varsity. Greg was the team's top butterfly specialist individually and swam this stroke on the 200-yard relay team that placed in state. . . . Ed Walsh Ed Walsh was a fine competitior in football and wrestling throughout his four year career. Ed lettered in football as a junior. He was most valuable player on the vasity football team as a senior and was an honorable mention all-conference back.

As a senior, Williams took a first in conference in the fourlap relay; a second in the pole vault and a second in broad jump. . . . Steve Johnson Steve Johnson concentrated all his efforts on one sport in becoming South's finest golfer. He was captain of his freshman team. He was most valuable player on his sophomore team and tied for second in conference and tenth in districts. He also had the lowest average on the soph squad. As a letterman, he captained his team and led the team with low average again. Steve took a fifth in the districts. . . . Dave Strom Dave Strom has excelled in both basketball and baseball. He captained his basketball and baseball teams in both his freshman and sophomore years. He lettered in both sports as a junior. As a senior, Dave was the outstanding man on the varsity five in basketball as an allCentral Suburban League forward. After this laural, he was awarded honorable mention on the all-area team and honorable mention on the all-suburban team. He lettered for a second time in baseball as a senior and has hit two homeruns to date in tournament play.
On a conference championship team in his second year he set another Maine East low hurdle record, breaking his own previous mark. He was elected most valuable by his teammates. As a junior he was Conference champion in high hurdles and set the conference champion high hurdle record. He placed second in districts and competed down state. In his final year Ed took the conference indoor records in
both of those events. In the Proviso Invitational he took a first in high hurdles and a second in low hurdles. In his final performance as a Hawk in the Districts he took a first place in high hurdles and a second place in low hurdles. . . . Gordon Williams Along with Ed Ward, Gordon Williams has been one of Maine's outstanding track stars for four years as well as a fine football player. Williams has played football all four years,

Members of Southwords staff get their first look at the 1966 Eyrie as it was delivered to the student body on May 26. Using the gymnasium as headquarters for distribution, the Eyrie staff distributed 1500 books in fortyfive minutes. The balance of the 1800 books were handed out during lunch periods. Miss Carol Singer, Eyrie sponsor reported there were absolutely no extra copies this year. The moral is: order your book early next year.
