Officers are: Joe Cosgrove, nresidentg Kenneth Mattson, vice president: Bill Rocpeneck, secretary: and Barbara Tiede, treasurer. Miss Hartley and Mr. Kutil are the advi sore. The football boys chose Ann DeJohn as e representative of the Freshmen class to the Queen's court for Lie Homecoming Dense. i ull 2 On Friday, October 13, 1944 the party, and on Friday, March 3, 1945 party a few of the Freshmen presented Preeily Bratrude and Mies Paulsen. spent in dancing and playing games. The Freshmen were represented in Presily Bratrude. h Sophomoree entertained the Freshmen with a the Freshmen returned the party. At this an original old time melodrama written by The remainder of the evening was pleasantly the student council by Elda Lou Elwood and All in all the Freshmen class had a well-rounded year, participating in the many school activities. 1 r FBESHMEN ASSEMBLY ENTERTAINERS COACH KBOLL SPORTSMANSHIP TROPHT WINNER IIIIIIIVIIIIIIS 7 14 SWING BAND Should you visit the north end of the building in the region of the music room some morning before school, you might hear strains of a favorite classical piece or the boogie rhythm of modern Jive. That 'practice makes perfect' is clearly demonstrated by talented students. The diligence of these students has been rewarded by the com endations re- ceived after the Christmas Concert, Sequoia Musicals, and the annual Spring Con- cert. The group also entertained at the Farm Bureau meeting in February in Grays- lake. In March the band presented its own musicals, which was a huge success. Sev- eral students sang vocals with the band. Much credit for the success of the group should be given to Mr. Von Holwede, who spends a great deal of time in molding the students into a team, which really could render music as we like it, sweet and solid. 15 The Sequoits started the 1944-45 football season with one of the most lnex- perienced teams in the Northwest Conference. There was only one bsckfield let- terman left from last year's squad, which necessitated rebuilding that section. However due to hard work and capable coaching the team developed into one of the best in the county. Three of the boys won berths on the All-Conference team: Bob Hughes, guardg and Stu Good, quarterbackg and Louie Nielsen, tackle. The season closed with the Sequoits in second place with four wins and three loses. DATE TEAM PLACE SCORE We They Sept. McHenry There 0 25 Sept Warren There 13 5 Sept.

This year an ap- pointed committee was asked to draw up a Forty-one Constitution, whereby boys who participate actively in sports, but do not earn an UAWmay attend the meetings but would have no voting power. The officers for 44-45 are as follows: Ken Krueger, president, Don Gaa,vice president: Stewart Good, secretary, and Ralph Trieger, treasurer. At the meeting Don Gaa was elected to have his name put on the WSportsman- ship Trophey,' and Ralph Trieger was elected captain of the 45 football squad. This year there are approximately 15 Hbona fide' members. Of last years 'A' Club, over 50 per cent of the members are now serving in the armed forces. 17 PEP CLUB The Pep Club is an organization to promote cheering and school spirit. The members sit together at games and really let loose on those cheers. They're right behind the team all the way, win or lose. The officers of 1944-45 were: president, Louise Elms: vice president, Joan Ielterg secretary-treasurer, Audrey Kallal. The sponsors were Mrs. Funkhouser and Coach Kroll. To raise money, the Pep Club sold magazine subscriptions. The campaign was very successful, with Bernice Palaske selling the most magazine subscriptions. They intend to use the money for things that the Girls' Physical Education De- partment needs. They also plan to buy other things around the school that are needed, such as stage properties. 18 S? fha fir 633 assist The us tfmfease et this iEa t: 1 43+ QS, X ,,6,ff ffku f. xy 1 Ser?

There was dancing, singing, games, and refreshments, which were enjoy- ed by all. The various singers were: Barbara Horton, Olga Himens, Joanne Saylor, Bob Risch, Eleanor Schaefer, and the quartetteg Dan Jones, Duane Weber, Bob Risch and George Sass. The Sophomore attendant chosen by the football team to attend the queen at the Homecoming Dance was Geraldine Sass. 23 The representatives of the Sophomore class to the Student Council were: Jerry Pregenzer, Duane Weber, Esther Weber, and Jane Nelson. Sophomore boys on the football team were: Dan Jones, Jerry Pregenzer, Duane Weber, Bill Myers, Leonard Mattson, and Howard Nevitt. Because the Sophomore class was extensive in size this year, three Class Ad- visors were necessary. There were: Miss Paulsen, Mrs. Funkhouser, and Mr. Van Holwede and the officers chosen for the year are as follows: Dan Jones, presid- entg Leonard Mattson, vice presidentg Jim Fields, secretary, and Albert Kumpfer, treasurer. SOPHOMORES zmwvmis 26 The lightweights can boast of a more successful season than the varsity. Their record of 9 wins and only 7 loses is more impressive than the first team record. The boys played very inconsistent ball, giving a display of excellent passing and shooting one game and shoving poor ball handling the next. High point man was Osenbaugh followed closely by Bob Kraft. These two boys will be a valuable addition to the varsity next year. 27 hw' I In spite of the fact that Antioch won only six basketball games this sea- son, the team was much better than the record. Many games were lost by close scores. The boys just weren't able so get that last basket or two they needed to vin the game. There were only two seniors, Louie Nielsen and Stu Good, on the Squad which means that the Sequoits should have a good team next year. The lightweights turned in some brilliant preformances and several of its members will fill the vacancies on the varsity for the coming season.

It consists of forty-eight members and Mr. Von Holwede has several students dstudying so they also may Join. As in previous years, the band paraded through town in celebration of the Homecoming Football game. Its music was also appreciated at all home basketball games. Patriotic anthems, college songs and rounds were among those played and enjoyed by all. Two very successful concerts were given in which the band played a very act- ive and enjoyable part. Armistice Day and Memorial Day programs included select- ions by this group. On Flag Day the band paraded and played while the graduating class dedicated a flag. 50 . GIRLS ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION This year's activities started out with the initiation of new members who earned their one hundred points in volley ball, which was followed by a supper at the Round-up. Volley ball was the first organized activity of the season followed by a tournament won by the sophomores. Basketball seemed to be the most popular activity. Spring activities also included baseball, tennis, and archery. This year we elected a council to head the various sportsg volley-ball P. Stastnyg basketball, B. Prindleg bowling, B. Ashe and D. Bauerg social events, D. Gross: spring activities, N. Ellis. The officers for the year were: president, G. Stimpflg secretary, M. L. Hunter: treasurer, G. Reidel. One of the outstanding events of the year was the All-Star-Teachers game on the first of March, won by the All-Stars. As in past years to supplement the game there were other attractions such as senior boy cheerleaders. 31 STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council represents the student body in deciding student affairs. The members of the Student Council elected the following officers: Trutchen Yopp, president: Mable Lou Hunter, vice presidentg Louise Elms, secretary: and Dorothy Scott, treasurer. The Student Council is made up of twenty members, consisting of: two from the Freshmen class, four from the Sophomore class, six from the Junior class and eight from the Senior class. The Student Council sponsored the Homecoming Dance and decorated the school accordingly. At Christmas time they purchased two Christmas trees and decorated the halls and windows. These and many other activities are handled by the Student Council. 32 1137 fps s , Q fs M gb W., .

This year Over 1600 farm pests such ae: English sparrows, rats, mice, crows, and starlings were caught and destroyed. F.F.A. officers for this year were: Richard Wells, president, Robert Hughes vice president: Robert Edwards, treasurerg Alan Thain, secretaryg Robert Kufalk, reporter., 41 Six lettermen form the nucleus around which Coach Kroll builds his 1945 track team. These men helped score many of the points in the Northwest Con- ference meet lagt year. Particularly outstanding of these veterans are Louie Nielsen who placed third in the shot and discus and Stu Good who won the 440 yard dash. The squad will be rounded out by Dan Jones and Duane Weber who team with Good in the hurdles and 880 relay: Ralph Trieger, who sets a fast pace for the dash meng Ray Scott, Pete Wolowic and Dick Redmer, distance meng and Ken Krueger who also throws the weights. There are several fresh- men propects whom we hope will help strengthen the team into a winning group of speedsters. M-8-UOW Up ana over Form!! 42 CHORUS The Sequoits have not only lent their musical talents to the Band and Swing Band but have formed a chorus, eighty strong. This is the largest in the history of A.T.H.S. At first, because of the number of new members, only about one-fourth of whom had previous chorus experience, many feared that it would be impossible to form a good organization. However, after diligent practice at bi-weekly meetings much success was attained. 43 Since then they have been devoting much time in preparation of the Spring Concert to be presented on May eleventh. The concert was a huge success. The singing group rendered ten or twelve beautiful masterpieces of the lyric world. Some of the songs were familiar melodies while others were comparatively little known. They were all enjoyed immensely by a large audience. When after the con- cert, a dance was held, many people stayed to witness or to take part. The chorus also participated in the baccalaureate and commencement exercises in the late spring. 44 CHARLEY'S AUNT Brassett Jack Chesney Charles Hykeham Lord Fancourt Babberley Kitty Verdun Amy Spettigue Col.

'Steve' 'Stas' 59 I CLASS HISTORY The beginning of school in the year of '41 brought a group of eager and intelligent freshmen to the portals of A.T.H.S., to begin school with a feeling of awe that any freshman experiences. It didn't take us long to become acquaint- ed with the upper classmen. After having been made to feel at home,we set out to acgomplish even greater things than any class had done before or will probably ever o. During this year we had a very successful pie sale and a party for the soph- omores. For officers we had Laurel Sobey and Charles Vykruts as girl and boy presidents, respectively: Marilyn Tiede and Don Bratrude, vice-presidents: Doris Burdick and Stephen Rzysko as sec-treas. Our class advisors were Miss Lyne and Mr. Hack. We ended our year with a picnic between the seniors and freshmen at Petrlfying Springs. The following year we came back prepared for anything to happen and were not so meek as when we were freshmen. Our class was well-represented in sports, band, chorus and other activities. Mabel Lou Hunter, Dottie Wilton, and Louise Elms became cheerleaders and several of the sophomore girls made the Q.A.A. All-star team. Several of our boys made the track and basketball team. Louise Elms rep- resented our class in the homecoming court. Ruth Winfield made us proud by co- editing the yearbook. The Sophomore representatives in student council were Trudy YOPP. Louise Elms, Kenneth Krueger, and Charles Vykruta. Our class officers were Kenneth Krueger, presidentg Mabel Lou Hunter, vice presidentg Doris Burdick, secretaryg Lucille Rhymer, treasurer, Mrs. Cass and Mr. Kutil were our able class advisors. The social highlight of the year was the party we gave the freshmen on Nov- ember l3th under the leadership of Trutchen Yopp. Our Junior year we were out for money and started the year selling candy un- der the direction and guidance of Miss Bullis and Miss Thomas. On November 19th and 20th we gave the play NMystery at Midnightn under the direction of Mrs. Coe- carelli which was a great success. As a result of all our money making schemes we put on the greatest prom of many years. Much time and hard work was put in to create the southern garden scene of the prom. Louise Elms was again representative to the homecoming court. Mabel Hunter, Louise Elms, Trutchen Yopp, Don Bratrude, Stuart Good, and Kar neth Krueger were the Junior student council representatives. The class officers for the year were Don Bratrude, president: Kenneth Krueger, vice president: Trut- chen Yopp, secretary, Alan Thain, treasurer. This year we enjoyed a feeling of superiority as seniors. Our class again showed up with many achievements to its credit. Having a lust for dramatics, the class play 'Feathers in a Ga1e,H was consideredone of the best plays of A.T.H.S. Mabel Hunter, Stuart Good, Louise Elms, Don Bratrude, Kenneth Krueger, Don Gaa, Trutchen Yopp, Ellyn Wilton, and Barbara Prindle are the studentcouncil rep- resentatives. The class officers, Alan Thain, presidentg Louis Nielsen, secretaryg Stuart Good, vice presidentg Don Gaa, treasurer, were ably assisted by Miss Weber and Mies Baxter as class advisors. The seniors were pleasantly entertained by the juniors at the annual Junior- senior banquet, realizing the great amount of work put into it from our own ex. perience. We closed our final year at Antioch Township High School with the an- nual Baccalaureate Service and Commencement. 60 I lill-- Richard Atwood-- Edna Barnstable- Betty B8rt16tt-- Don Bratrude ---- Doris Burdick--- Betty Busscher-- Freya Edlmann-- Robert Edwards.- Louise Elms---- Charles Flint--- Don Gaa----.--..
