MISS ALICE E. SMITH: We Wish you to know
that we respect your ability, appreciate your kindness,
admire your character, and truly value your friend-
ship. We know that we have many times given you
cause to doubt the truth of this statement, that We
have frequently tried your patience almost to the
breaking point. Your nineteen years of service as
teacher in the Antioch High School are as compared
with the "teacher on the n1ount',-patient-kind-
steadfast. You represent our school at its best. We
are proud to call you our own.
Thus, we, the Juniors of the Antioch Township High
School, do respectfully dedicate this book.

OUR SCHOOL AS IT ONCE WAS
In 1902 two years of high school were started in the old building of the grade
school. The subjects were: one year of Latin, plane and solid geometry, biology,
English, algebra and physical geography. The teaching staff consisted of one lone
teacher, Professor Frank Gaggin. Social activities, such as we enjoy, were practically
mentionless. So it seems, as one reflects, that we have much to be thankful 'for even
though at present we may think we are suffering untold tortures at the hands of our
OF THE CAST . ..
One of the most important groups in the school organization, and the least
appreciated by the majority of students, is the Board of Education.
Most of the students do not know that they are indebted to this Board for
the variety of programs which they may follow during their high school years.
Antioch students, upon graduation, are well prepared for entrance into college or
into the business world.
The Board of Education is in charge of the physical plant and they approve
the school policies suggested by the principal. The present Board has made mod-
ern improvements in buildings and in teaching devices. The township, village,
and students are proud of these additions.
Each member of the Board has devoted much of his time to solving school
problems as they presentthemselves.
The students of Antioch Township High School are greatly indebted to
these people for their loyal service and for the interest they have shown in elevat-
ing the school standards to higher levels.
Mr. Clarence Crowley, having served nine years on the Board, has resigned
and Mr. Wfalter Hills, newly elected member, is taking his place. We welcome
Mr. Walter Hills.

TEACHERS AT ANTIOCH TOIWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL
The Antioch Teachers have the interest of the school at heart and are always
striving to make Antioch "bigger and better." Many times they sacrihce personal time
and interest for the benefit of the school.
The student body as the potter's wheel, the teachers are constantly moulding
character and personalityg a task that is never iinished during the school life of the
individual. This is watched with utmost care to develop the citizens they wish them
to be. In the student activities the teachers contribute their experience and helpfulness
to develop leaders.
Our teachers are trained in the highest universities of America, and they bring
to Antioch the richness of their training. During the summer, the teachers attend the
universities to keep abreast of the times in education. They take the lead and are ex-
amples to us in our social, cultural, and intellectual welfare.
And last, but not least, they are our best friends in time of trouble and when
we need counsel and advice. We, the students of Antioch High, "Salute youf,

The class of '38 entered Antioch Township H1 h in September 1934 At First school
seemed like a dream, but before we knew it we felt quite at home and were beginning to act like
normal human beings. Our Freshman Officers were:

Under the leadership of these officers, we sold hamburgers at the Country Fair in October

FORECASTING THE FUTURE
In the summer of 1958 I was in Geneva, Switzerland, as a Repre-
sentative Of the United States to a World Conference of Industry. One
morning before the conference had started, I received a wild cablegram:
"Class of nineteen thirty-eight, 20th reunion, don't be late. Don't
try to put on the Ritz. Gather all at Geneva, Switzerland. Let 'er rip.
I was mystified until next day I saw Robert Matthes, who was one
of Marshall Field,s high pressure salesmen. He said he had found out
that many members of our class were to be in Geneva so he had immed-
iately seen Betty Grimes, the U. S. Secretary of Labor, who also was in
Geneva, and together they decided that there ought to be a class reunion.
Invitations were hurriedly typed and sent OIT. The reunion was to take

The first problem the Junior Class and its advisers, Mr. Reuben Childers
and Miss Helen Olson, who replaced Miss Brumund, faced was a way to raise
money to sponsor the many events of the coming year.
In October we presented our class play, "Who Wouldn't Be Crazy?"
a three-act comedy which took place in a sanitarium. The Community party
held in February also aided our funds a great deal.
The members of our class were very active in the sports of the high
school this year as well as the two preceding years.
The profits of the play, community party, and the candy sales through-
out the year, enabled us to have our Junior-Senior Banquet and Promenade. The
ballroom was decorated with colored cellophane, colored lights, and chrome.
Twenty-four spohomore boys and girls waited on the tables in the library.
We, the Seniors of next year, are looking forward to one more exciting
and prosperous year together.

The fifty-six members in the sophomore class are looking forward to two
more years of great activity in Antioch Township I-Iigh School.
Among our memories so far we recall that at the beginning of our fresh-
man year the G. A. A. sponsored a carnival to raise money for gymnasium equip-
ment. Each class presented a short feature of some kind, and the sophomores
remember with great satisfaction that our impersonation of Major Bowes' Ama-
teur Hour won first prize.
In sports we have enjoyed ourselves, too. As freshmen our boys partici-
pated in the intra-mural baseball games and took second place. This year the
sophomore girls topped the classes in basketball victories.
Looking ahead to our responsibilities for next year,s expenditures, we have
begun our savings account with the commissions made during the stationery sale
this spring. With our high school career held over, we go forward,

The FRESHMAN CLASS
At our first meeting, we elected our officers for the year: Frank Petty,
President, Jeanette Whited, Vice-President, Joan Smith, Secretaryg Roberta Selter
and Bob Hunt, Representatives to the Student Council.
In order that we might learn to dance, we practiced social dancing after
school. Then on October 22 the sophomores gave us a H.1llowe'en party. Every-
one enjoyed especially the "Chamber of Horrors."
On March 18, we demonstrated our talents in a musical program for the
sophomores-our guests of a Valentine party.
NVith six boys against six girls on March 22, we held a Professor Quiz
program on manners and etiquette. At the close of the period the girls were in
the lead. . . ,
ln our separate group meetings, our leaders were as follows: Boys, Group
-Fred Hawkins, President, Jim Harvey, Secretary-Treasurer. Girls' Group-
Mary Osmond, Presidentg Violet Loftus, Vice-President, Vir Jean Hook, Secre-
tary, and Joyce Anderson, Assistant Secretary. Here we have shared many com-
mon problems. The boys built their pr-ograms around the theme "Good Mannersn
and the girls "The All-Around Girl."
As our freshman year comes to a close, we look forward to an even more
enjoyable year as sophomores.

Herein we gain the knowledge that in after life aids us in
avoiding the wrath of nature and taking preventative measures
against the catastrophes which every year take their toll of human life.
FROM THE FURROWS OF AGRICULTURE
Agriculture has a vigorous challenge for the young men and
women of America. We learn through this study that by scientiiic
and modern methods we may live in the closest possible harmony with
FROM THE LARDER OF FOODS
Without knowledge of this all important subject we cannot
hope to live our life to the fullest, to survive. This is perhaps the
most important subject offered because of its vital relation to the
sustaining of human life.
FROM THE MONOTONY OF STUDY HALL
Mental discipline is vitally important in any subject. It is
here that we learn it, sometimes to our sorrow, but always we benefit
in our adult lives if we have learned our lesson well.

Wfith an added interest in athletics and games of all kinds becoming so ap-
parent at the present time, we of the Antioch Township High School are fortunate
in being able to participate in many activities. A definite effort is made to ac-
quaint us with a knowledge of the technique, tactics, and an appreciation of the
games as a whole. The many activities are developmental in character and stress
particularly good postural habits, coordination and body mechanics. Pupil leader-
ship is a character outcome which ranks in importance with the finest of health

After the first victory they were defeated two games. However, they
found their standing again and won six consecutive games. They finished
in fourth place in the conference and went on to the district tourna-
ment. They were defeated in the first game they played, by Richmond,

BASEBALL AT ANTIOCH TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL
The school officials and Coach R. H. Childers believe that the national game of base-
ball should be one of the major sports in the athletic program of the high school. With
this in View the spring season our after school activities stress the coaching of baseball to
all those interested.
Our teams Without the stress of winning every contest have made enviable records.
In the northern section of the conference we have led the way. The school furnishes equip-
ment for more than two teams. We always have two teams out for practice every night
to ive inning scrimmage games. The outlook for the season is very promising and we eX-
pect to finish again in the first division. Some of our graduates have been called to the
minor leagues of organized baseball. "Play Ball."
Mr. R. H. Childers Miss H. M. Olson
The Antioch Township High School has one of the best set-ups for intramural
sports in the state of Illinois. The system under which the program Works at Antioch is
the latest in the Held of education. Most high schools today hold their interclass sports and
contests after school hours which allows only a limited number because of outside interests
and other school activities. At Antioch the boys and girls engage in athletic sports during
regular school hours. With hour periods for this purpose every boy and girl is exposed to
numerous play activities. Our aim is to teach games and athletic sports so that they will
be carried over into adult life for use during leisure hours. The games and sports taught at
Antioch Township High School are the following: Basketball, touch-football, baseball, ten-
nis, soft ball, volley ball, golf, ping-pong, badminton, archery, held hockey, ice hockey,
horseshoe, soccer, gymnastics, tap and social dancing fold time and newj, tumbling and
apparatus and track and field athletics. Every boy and girl learns the skills of all the games
and then specializes in one or more sports.

The G. A. A. started out very active by initiating the Freshmen into the
organization and having a kids party.
Near the beginning of the year the girls decided they should raise some
money. They had a magazine campaign in which the whole school cooperated.
It turned out to be very successful. The money earned was for awards, sending
girls to G. A. A. camp and any other item that came up.
They chose a leader for each sport and it was her responsibility to interest
girls in coming out for her sport and taking attendance. The leaders elected for
the different sports were as follows: .
Eileen Synder - Archery Lois Craft - Valley Ball
Mildred Horan - Baseball Mildred Van Patten - DIIllC'll1g
Clarice Minto - Hiking Jeanette Whited - Track and Field
Betty Grimes - Hockey and Soccer Zella Ellis - Tizmbling
Marjorie Doolittle - Baxkeiball Joan Snaith-Inrlizfizlzml Sports
Janice Kapple was elected song leader. Many came out for the different
An informal banquet was given on January 20th, for the presentation of
many hard earned awards. One of the outstanding events of the evening was the
basketball game by the teachers, the other event was Miss Olson's surprise, the
presentation of a movie picture taken at G. A. A. camp where four of our girls
were last summer.
An archery tournament was held in the fall. Dorothy Jacobsen, Julia
Huffhes, Clarice Minto, Ruth Glenn, Ph llis Hu iles and Eileen Sn der were the

were given out to designate the teams. Two girls from each school were given
the same color. Many games were played. The day ended by singing songs and
a good time was seemed to be had by all.
Two of the sports we enjoyed the most were:

Last fall Antioch Township High School started what was recognized
as the only project of its kind in America, "A Game Refuge," sponsored by
a public high school. Newspapers carried the story from California to
Maine, giving the high school creditable praise and wide publicity. Con-
servation is the byword with the boys and girls in the school. Our local
refuge is a natural grove having an artificial pond for migratory water fowl
and natural cover for upland birds, such
as pheasants, quail, partridge. Song birds
are of interest to our local people and make
our school park one of beauty. Care of
flowers, trees and grasses gives our refuge
the natural setting. Feeding stations were iJu,,, P r
built to take care of the pheasants during 1 i w
the winter months.

place in two days at the hotel uFreedom', which had been rented ex-
clusively for the ,38ers.
I decided that I would arrive early so as to miss none of the fun,
and reached the hotel soon after our two sponsors. However, right
after me came Bernard Osmond, the best criminal lawyer in New Yo-rk,
and his great friend Chuck Smith. Chuck had developed into a leading
electrician and was improving his position in society rapidly. His as-
sistant was Wilson G. King.
Just then we heard a loud horn blast and reached the window in
time to see a great long car pull up to the curb. A figure quickly opened
the door and stepped out. It was none other than Charles Hawkins, the
wavy haired movie actor, who had recently been chosen king of the movie
colony. At present he was at work on another picture in France. Also
in the car was George Hawkins, his almost-as-famous cousin, a noted
comic writer for the Chicago Tribune. His wife, formerly Miss Vir-
ginia Ames, was unable to accompany him because of illness. We did not
pay any attention to the chauffeur until he entered the hotel. Then we
recognized him as Joe Thomas.
The next to arrive was Mabel Simonsen, who had only recently
secured the job of beautician on one of the largest steamships in the
world. Luckily her boat had just landed. Closely following her was
Robert Chinn, the radio crooner who specializes in singing love songs.
Just then we heard heavy footsteps approaching. We instantly
recognized them as Jack Riddel's, in Europe at this time coaching the
Clympic boxing team. Right after him came Bud Anderson, the archi-
tect, closely followed by his faithful assistant, Wilson King, and Wil-
son's wife, Harriet Goodell. After them comes one of the world's most
famous diplomats, Parker Hazen. At present he is the American am-
bassador to Germany.
Hearing the sound of an airplane, we knew that Wendell Nelson,
America's foremost aviator, would soon be with us. He was also bring-
ing his assistant, Charles Miller, and his mechanic, Stanley West.
Ah! Here comes Grace McCormack who just inherited part of
the McCormack fortune. She and her close friend, Velma Greenwald,
are now living in a luxurious New York apartment. They are accompan-
ied by Hazel Olsen who is teaching American History at Antioch High
School and Lois Craft who is the Physical Ed. teacher there, these last be-
ing supervised by Ed Dressel who has just taken the position as princi-
pal at Antioch.
Wilson King reports that Robert Denman, James Nielsen and Don
Truax will be unable to be with us because of their work. At present
