As untutored pages We enter the Castle of Knowl-
edge to learn court life and living. 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
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.

J. o. AUSTIN
Behind the scenes of everyday life in the
Castle of Knowledge is the guiding hand of
the school board and the principal. 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-
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
Left to Right
Mr. James McMillen, Mr. Paul Chase, Mr. Arthur Maplethorpe,
Mt. Walter Hills, Mrs. Jean Ferris
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

'Member way back in September '36? 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.
'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-
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
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-
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
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.
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!

THE JUNIOR STORY
F, Hawkjng, Prcg, Smith, View-Pres. M. Osmond, Secy.
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.

During the year, our class was well represented in most of the school activities. Pour of
our boys played on the regular basketball team and three of our girls upheld our honor on the
girls' all-star team. Six of the sophomore boys represented us in the boxing tournaments. Mar-
garet DeBates was elected as our candidate for home-coming queen. Five of the students of our
class belonged to the student council and twelve sophomores were in the play tournaments.

Our freshman class is the largest Antioch has seen in some time. The total enrollment
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.

Clubs comprise one of the most important turrets in Antiochls Castle.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

The Dramatics department always looks forward to a busy year with its activities
centering around Curtain Call Club.
The ofhcers of the club are R. Selter, president, M. Doolittle, vice-president, J.
Perry, secretary, D. Klass, treasurer, and B. Hanke, program chairman. Mrs. Phillips is
th: advisor and sponsor.
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 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.

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.

The Future Farmers of America, an industrious agricultural organization, plays
an important part in our high school. The Antioch F. F. A. 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.

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-

Some of the outstanding players have organized the Swing Band which has con-
tributed much toward making our school parties successful. 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.
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. Antioch can well be proud of its high

Its purpose is "dance and enjoy it." Antioch's jitterbugs have been offered the oppor-

"Somewhere in Ohio" a young man was doing his best to make his
trailer camp put him through school. 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.

Ehe Sports Story
Our sports program for this year was a very complete and successful one.
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
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."
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.
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.
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-
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.

The A Club was organized for boys who have received one or more school letters
for outstanding playing on any of the organized sport teams.
The purpose of the Club is to encourage good school spirit and enthusiasm
among the students.
This Club has many accomplishments to its credit. The members worked with
Girls' Club to make Courtesy Week a success. The A Club also put up posters re-
minding the students to keep the school clean.

Marjorie Doolittle was crowned Queen of the Homecoming and was attended by M.
DeBates, R. Selter, and C. Waters. Each girl was elected by the popular vote of her
group. Marjorie was formally designated Queen of the Homecoming at the dance fol-
lowing the game. This, the first homecoming to be held at the Antioch High School,
proved to be very successful.
the ever-active Dramatics department presented the community their Christmas gift
in a program depicting Christmas through the ages. There was the modern play,
"Christmas Trimmingsug the pioneer play, "Star on the Trail", the Puritan play, "The
Christmas Spirit of Swift Deerng and Hnally, the story of the first Christmas, "So
Saith the Prophecy."
The music department led the audience in the singing.
