With high hopes and some fears, We begin our career toward develop- ment of knowledge, striving to reach at least one turret in the castle. We picture our school participation as a castle consisting of turrets. Each turret represents an activ- ity in which We participate, or faculty members and students Who iniiuence us. Through these various activities We obtain a fully rounded school experience which will help to guide our foot-steps to the infinite goal of knight-hood: service to the World. I s s MARGUERITE K. PHILLIPS DEDICATION There are ladies in every castle. Our Castle of Knowledge is no exception. Among the most gracious and kind of these ladies is Mrs. Phillips, companion and helper throughout the trials of our high school careers. Not only is she capable in her own turret, Dramatics, but she throws her influence and lends her encourage- ment to other helds of endeavor as well. Her busy schedule is never too crowded for her to give a bit of advice. So to her, who is beloved by every student and remembered by every graduate, we dedicate our annual, Sequoia 1940.

Our castle is exceptionally fortunate in having such a Hne group of men and women to give us the opportunity to climb to the very top of each turret. They have con- tinued to uphold the standards set by pre- vious school boards in providing valuable equipment necessary for our participation in sports, dramatics, vocational clubs, and all extra curricular activities. Mr. Austin, our principal, has come this year from Athens to the Castle of Knowl- edge, Those who are leaving realize that his leadership will be a lasting influence. We have the feeling that he is genuinely interested in our problems and activities. He is always willing to guide our efforts and give us the benefit of his past experi- ence. Mr. Austin has also become a leader in our civic organizations. He is an active member of the Men's Civic Club, the Lions Club, and the Antioch High School Parent Teachers' Association. Left to Right Mr. James McMillen, Mr. Paul Chase, Mr. Arthur Maplethorpe, Mt. Walter Hills, Mrs. Jean Ferris jfacultg The Sequoit faculty is topped by few. We are for- tunate to have instructors who are Willing to guide our steps through the trails of learning. During our four years in this Castle We spend a great deal of our time with these teachers. They are always ready to aid us with our personal problems as Well as our academic work. Mr. Kutil CClarencej University of Wisconsiii, B. S. Agrirzilfzm' I". If. A.

Fifty-nine green, but promising, freshmen were we -the Class of '40, We chose Ray Baethke as president, Leona I-Iostetter as vice-president, and Gordon Knott, secretary-treasurer. Doris Schneider and Gordon represented us in the Student Council. Johnny Blackman and Marge Doolittle served on the Red Cross Council. Our capable advisers were Miss O'Neal, Mrs. Bennett, and Mr. Stillson. Our class, being lively and energetic, entered into all activities whole-heartedly. Bill Cisna ably represented us on the cheer leading squad. Maynard Schneider and Johnny Black- man played basketball on the light-weight team. Our actors in the play tournament were Betty Hanke, Paul Sterbenz, Bill Cisna, Helen Horton and Marge Doolittle. One of our triumphs was our part in the G. A. A. Carnival. Our candidate for Queen of the Carnival, Jeanne Perry, placed second, and our "Major Bowes" Amateur Hour won the honored first place and the one dollar prize. SOPHOMORE YEAR '37 saw us back in school, fifty-six strong, with Marge Doolittle presiding. Working with her were Johnny Blackman, vice-president, and Leona Hostetter, secretary-treasurer. In the Student Council were Doris Schneider and Gordon DeBoer. Miss Fledderjohn, with Mr. Stillson, became our advisers for this, our sophomore year. As sophomores we came to the front in intramural sports, both boys' and girls' teams win- ning the inter-class basketball tournaments. On the basketball second team were Campbell, Pa- laske, and Blackman. Wells, Campbell, and Schneider were members of the baseball team. On the floor leading cheers with the others was Mildred Van Patten. We all remember the inter-class play tournament, when Bill Thompson, a dignified inn keeper, nearly choked himself on that 'ttalcum powder" smoke. That was in "Rip Van Winklef' Others of our classmates were outstanding in the tournament plays-Ray Campbell, who was given an award as the best Thespian, Lucille Waters, Bill Cisna, Johnny Blackman, Betty Hanke, and Otto Palaske. Later in the year, twenty-four of us were selected to serve at the Junior-Senior Prom- enade. As a finale for a grand year, we held a class picnic at Fox River Grove-and "a good time was had by all-U JUNIOR YEAR Co-operation was the theme of our activities throughout our junior year, and all fifty-four members of the class worked together. Class oi'Iicers were Ray Baethke, president, Bill Cisna, vice-president, Danny Palaske, secretary, and "Red" Behning, treasurer. Ray Campbell and Lucille Waters represented us in the Student Council. In October we presented the play, "The Circus Is Coming to Town," written by our dramatic coach, Mrs. "M, K." Phillips. Few of us will forget "Ceruke" Heath's mustache in the dramatic scene of the second act. Our dramatic ability was also shown by those who represented us in the Book Week Tableaux, Christmas Play, and the Inter-Class Play Tournament. The "Sequoia" of 1939 was successfully issued, with Lucille Waters and Bill Cisna work- ing as co-editors. Many were the nights we spent hard at work, and we recall with much laughter Danny and "Mabel." Thompson, Knott, Baethke, Cisna, Schneider, Campbell, I-Iawkins, Palaske, and DeBoer were our braves on the light-weight basketball tearn. Out on the floor cheering them on was Mildred Van Patten. The baseball season found Wells, Swenson, Schneider, Campbell, and Techert on the dia- mond. Golf and tennis were opportunities to prove the talent of Hawkins, Cisna, Knott, Knickel- bein, and Pierce. We all enjoyed planning and preparing for "then event of the year, the Junior-Senior wut llbaet Promenade. The theme was an Hawaiian setting, with an effective rock garden and pool to pro- vide atmosphere for the guests. As the climax of a year of hard work and real fun, our own Bill Cisna was elected Stu- dent Council President for the year '39-40. The annual class picnic was a big success. We spent the day at Petrifying Springs, where some played golf and baseball, and others hiked. At this time we gave Miss Fledderjohn a farewell gift to show our appreciation of all her fine work. SENIOR YEAR 1 In September, '39, fifty-two of us entered the Castle of Knowledge. We elected Bill Cisna, president, Ray Baethke, vice-presidentg Lucille Waters, secretary, and Mildred Van Pat- ten, treasurer. Our advisers were Miss Rasmussen and Mr. Stillson. In the Student Council we were represented by Lila Dalgaard, Gordon Knott, and Bill Cisna, the president. Bill and Gordon went to the State Convention at Carbondale. We seniors truly took Ufirstsf' Betty Hanke was president of the Girls, Clubg Ray Baethke president of the "A" Club, Zella Ellis president of the G. A. A., and Francis Swenson president of the F. F. A. Marge Doolittle was voted "Queen of the Homecoming," and reigned at the dance which followed our victorious "Winn over Grant, We again proved our dramatic talents by winning the Drama Shield in the inter-class play tournament. Bill Cisna was chosen "best actorf' and Jeanne Perry, Richard Prince, Louise Mueller, Lucille Waters, Otto Gussarson, and Betty Hanke received Thespian awards. Bill Cisna took part in the district play tournainent at La Grange, where we took second place. The Senior Play, "Spring Fever," was put over with great success. Poor Hal-what a Workout he had! Class Night, Ivy Day, Baccalaureate, our last class get-together, and, of course, gradua- tion, and our story of four fine years packed with work and play, enjoyment, and serious thought is ended. wut will We, the Class of 1940, Antioch Township High School, being of sound mind and mem- ory, and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life, do therefore make, ordain, publish, and declare this to be our last WILL and TESTAMENT, hereby revoking all other and former wills by us at any time made.

The third year in the high school is always the most memorable and most activeg our junior class has found this especially true. The first big event of this year was the Junior Class Play, entitled l'S0mewhere in Ohio," which was directed by Mrs. Phillips. We enjoyed working in it and the audience seemed to enjoy seeing it. Next the juniors undertook a Community Party. As you will remember the decorations emphasized the atmosphere of Christmasg a stage show provided entertainment. The month of May was extremely busy for the juniors. The annual was published and the Prom was given, the success of the Annual may be judged by yourselves. The last and probably most anticipated event of the year was the Junior Prom, which the juniors gave in honor of the seniors. XWe are looking forward to a happy and prohtable senior year.

Maplethorpe, Sery. Our freshman class is the largest Antioch has seen in some time. The total enrollment is eighty-one. The sophomore class gave us a party last fall. In january, a return party was given, at which we went skating and coasting. Later refreshments were served and everyone danced. The entire class was in the spring exhibition. Thirteen girls were on the tumbling team and in the tap dancing. Some of the boys were on the boys' tumbling team. A number of our classmates have participated in plays. George Pierce went to the dis- trict play tournament which was held in LaGrange. Betty Sobey and Idal Maier sang frequentiy in school assemblies. Shirley Johanson was a cheer leader this year, which we considered an honor to our class. The class, as .1 whole, is very interested in Sports-especially btseball. XVe look forward to our sophomore year with anticipation. hoping to once again enter these activities. and to make Ll place for our class in the School life.

Nearly every Sequoit is interested in the Club program and does his most toward the betterment of it. In the club program nearly every field of endeavor is found-dramatics, athletics, handicraft, home economics, agriculture, and music. Drama lovers find an outlet for their talent in the Curtain Call Club. Music lovers have many organizations from which to choose. For the talented students-the glee club, chorus, band, and swing band offer opportunities. For the jitterbug Qwith which Antioch is generously endowedj we have the Swing Club. The Student Council is the student governing body of the school. Its members are representatives chosen from the various groups and clubs in school. The purpose of the Council is to form a more intimate understanding between students and teachers, to control school social functions and activities, and to act as an advisory body to the faculty for the students. Under the Student Council, all turrets in the Castle are unified to form an active, contented, co-operative body working together for the good of the school and its students.

Severson 4 time 7 eunnmitz Glluh The Home Economics Club of Antioch is one of the most active clubs in school. Isabel Larimer is its adviser. The aims of this organization are to develop girls socially and mentally and to develop their home living. Many of the club meetings were devoted to the discussion of fashions that are appropriate for the high school girl. The Home Economics girls, in collaboration with the F. F. A. boys, gave a joint party. This proved such a success that later in the year another was given. A tea- dance and several hot dog sales were given to raise money. A Mother and Daughter banquet was the Hnal event in the spring of the school year. This club has been active in school life for the last ten years. Sequuii ,Staff During this year, it has been a pleasure and a privilege to work on the Annual staff. This has been made possible by the co-operation and generosity of all students and teachers as well as outsiders. NVe wish to take this time to express our apprecia- tion of their genuine interest. The staff is made up of fourteen juniors to whom different assignments were given. These assignments gave opportunities to write biographies of teachers and stories of classes and clubs. Besides these, many stories were written concerning school functions, class activities, and various programs. The staff had Joyce Anderson and Roberta Selter as co-editors. l3lU1If1IEIli51lI Glluh This club is responsible for the school newspaper that is published semi-weekly. Every student enjoys his school newspaper with its news items, its "SpiceH column, fashion notes, editorials, and feature articles. The reporters and their adviser, Miss Rasmussen, spend a great deal of their spare time in preparing the paper. There is a larger membership in the club this year than last. We all hope that we will always have a "Sequoit Newsl' to let us know about everything that is going on in the school. Qllarltei Qlluh The Racket Club was organized for the purpose of promoting interest in racket sports, such as ping pong, tennis, and badminton. This club is striving to create good sportsmanship and fair play. The Tennis Club was not active for several years, but this year it was reorganized under the name of the Racket Club. The group sponsors the school tournaments for racket sports. This year they will take part in the inter-school matches. It is hoped that girls as well as boys will participate. Probably interest and membership in the club will increase next year. First Row, Left to Right-P. XX'h,rg, M, DQ BAICS. E. Horton, Miss Liirimcr, advisor, A. Denman, D. Carney, D. Drury.

Almost as soon as school started, work on the Book Week Tableaux was begun. Twenty-ive tableaux, representing books about every part of the world, were presented to the students. At Christmas, the club produced four plays, with the theme "Christmas Through the Agesf, The Play Tournament entailed the co-operation of the entire school, but was centered about the club. A minimum admission was charged for the two nights. The money taken in from the Play Tournament sustains the club throughout the year. The final activity was the Thespian Banquet. Fourteen awards were given to outstanding Thespians who had helped to make the year a success. nh zmh Cbun Maynard Schneider, Pres., Edward Knickelbein, Vice-pres., Bill Thompson, Secy.-Treas. The purpose of the Rod and Gun Club is to train boys in handling a gun, a fish- ing rod, and a sling shot. This club is also interested in wild life. Although the mem- bers are interested in hunting and fishing, they are sportsmen and believe in conserva- tion. To this end they have done much in the short time they have been organized. Because of growing enthusiasm in the club work, we feel certain that it will be a real improvement to the school. I uhzrn: 7 ziriunrs nf ,Aiiwrim u Francis Swenson, Pres. Richard Hartnell, Sexy.

Chapter, which was organ- ized in 1929, is the oldest in the state. It was organized under the leadership of Mr. Kutil, the present advisor. The main purposes of the club are to create more interest in agriculture and to improve the standards of farming. Some of the activities of this club include the pest contest, judging contests, and stock shows. The club also helps the "ag" boys to finance their projects. A thrift banking and co-operative buying system is kept throughout the year. Such a club is the foundation for good country citizens. Cbirls' Pdlileht Ae-suttattnzi The cfniecs of the Antioch association, supervised by Miss Margaret Stanley, are Zella Ellis, president, Lois Bonner, vice-president, Roberta Selter, secretary, Betty Hanke, treasurer, and Violet Loftus, song leader. - The activities of the G. A. A., organized by Miss Cornelia Roberts in the fall of 1935, are girls' intramural sports: baseball, hiking, field hockey, basketball, ping-pong, badminton, callisthenics, archery, track, and tennis. This year the group gave a skating party in conjunction with the "A" Club, another party in Cctob-er, and a tobogganing party during the winter. An all-star basketball team was chosen to play in the gym exhibition. The big event of the year was the final banquet at which the awards for the year's accomplishments were pre- sented. The high ideals set up by the G. A. A. have helped all girls who participated in the program. First Row, Left to Right-fA. NVard, D. Klass, M. Doolittle, R. Srltcr, lwlrs. Phillips, advisor, kl.

Two important events that the band played for were the Homecoming and the Junior Community Party. Dale Smith acts as assistant conductor. Mary Kay Lynn, Violet Loftus, Betty Shank, and Bob Hunt are the bandis vocalists. Mr. Von Holwede is looking forward to a larger band next year. Zllianh The school band is conducted by Hans Von Holwede, Antioch's good natured music instructor, better known to students as "Hans," There are approximately forty pieces in the band, which are played by talented members of every class. The instru- mentation is exceptionally hne for so small a school. Our band has played ably and willingly for home basketball games, for the gym exhibition, and for several town functions.

His trouble really starts when he is descended upon by a bus load of school girls-minus their chaperon- and two pairs of boys, both fitting the description of escaped bandits. Marooned at the camp by the flood, the girls and boys give the poor owner a terrible headache and the audience a good many laughs. The comedy goes merrily on its troubled way -to a happy ending. Senior filing We sincerely hope that all college students do not run into as many difficulties as did these young people when they were suffering from "Spring Fever." Term papers, graduation, chemistry explosions in the homemade "lab,,' romance, mistaken identity-what more could one ask for excite- ment. The young hero holds that "honesty is the best policy," even when it means his failure. His "Policy,', however, turns out to be perfectly right, and the comedy comes to a close happily wiifa c'vc'ry011e U96 best of friends. Standing, Left to RightsF. Petty, M. Osmond, R. Selter. J.

Several different fields of interest were added to our program. It now consists not only of inter-school competition, but also of intramural competition. All of the boys and girls who are interested may participate in these contests. Basketball was the main inter-school sport. This year the team had a very full schedule, which consisted of about twenty-three games. We won approximately one-half of these games. An intramural basketball tournament was held for both the girls and boys. In recent years golf has come forward as a major sport. We have many capable boys on the team, and we expect to have a successful season. Besides our regular golf tournaments, we annually stage an intramural tournament. Boxing is a sport in which many of our boys took part this year. A boxing team was organized and proved to be quite successful in bouts with other schools. Many fine matches took place at our own boxing tournament which was staged before record crowds for three successive nights. A Tennis is one of the newer sports open to both boys and girls. This is our first year so we are not placing our hopes too high, yet our prospects look promising for this season and for the years to come. Great interest has been shown in another new sport, track. Although in for- mer years our boys could go out for track, this is the first year we have had an es- tablished team. Mr. Edwards, who coaches the boys, says that they are confident of their ability. Our baseball schedule this year consists of ten games. Although the competi- tion is "stiff," we expect to come out on top. Thus, with the introduction of new sports and a complete intramural program, this year's sports mouto really has been "Many studenfs in many sports." glileahgfnnighi Uezxm After training for several weeks the Sequoits played host to Richmond on Tuesday, November 21, to officially open their 1939-40 basketball season. Paced by Bill Thompson the Sequoits easily emerged with a 34-29 victory. Then, after dropping Hve straight games the Sequoits romped over Grant on December 15 for their first conference victory. Wauconda was the next victim and was nosed out in an overtime game 22-21 when Thompsf 'pped in a rebound shot. January 9 and February 6 will go down in sch-,ol history because on both occasions we defeated Warren, our foremost rival. Probably one of the biggest events of the season was our first homecoming. On this occasion Grant was our opponent and the Sequoits, led by Jim Harvey, swamped Grant 39-29. This was our third conference win. Palatine and Wauconda, the Sequoits' next conference games, were lost by decisive scores. Northbrook was our last conference opponent and was easily defeated 25-19. Thus our conference season ended with the Sequoits in fourth place with five victories against five defeats. lightweight 61921111 The lightweights furnish the material and opposition for the first team. Each day they are pounded in practice by the heavyweights. To them goes more credit than is ever given. They are the boys who will next year be the Hrst team. This year they ended a successful season with a total of ten victories. Qlheerlvuhrrs Six students, selected by a student vote, represented Antioch this year as cheer- leaders. From a large field of contestants these six, four girls and two boys, were chosen. Those who did their best to cheer the teams on to victory were Mildred Van Patten, Virjean Hook, Violet Loftus, Shirley Johanson, Robert Pedersen, and Charles An- derson. Mildred Van Patten, the most experienced of the group, was unanimously elected head cheerleader by her fellow members. In this position she acted as chairman for the pep meetings that preceded the more important games. This year was considered very successful with the introduction of new cheers, new actions for them, and four new squad members. "CAM Qilull Reuben Childers-Advisor Ray Baethke, Pres.
