CLASS OF 1946
When the Class of '46 entered the halls of A.T.H.S. in the fall of 1941, the
rest of the student body and members of the faculty realized this group' of
freshmen had the ability and intelligence to be an asset to the school. To raise
money for the party we gave the sophomores, we sold tickets for a movie. Our ef-
forts wgre liberally rewarded, for the party was a great success.
'Our class officers were Ralph Trieger, president: Gertrude Hawkins, vice-
president: Joan Felter, secretary: Georgia Reidel, treasurer. Our representa-
tives in Student Council were Joan Felter, June Spanggard, Ralph Trieger, and
William Setek. Joan Felter was elected to be a member of the Queen's court. Ear-
ly in the year we were sorrowed by the death of our classmate, Vida Haley.
Eagerly we entered our sophomore year and our members took part iJ1practical1y
all school activities. We entertained the freshmen with a party at which the
Jazz band furnished the music.
Our class officers were Wesley Reeves, president: Jim Walsh, vice president:
Leroy Ellis, secretary: and Joe Sterbenz, treasurer. Miss Reynolds was again our
advisor,but Mr.Kroll, who was our advisor during our freshman year, was replaced
by Mrs. Coscarelli. We were represented in Student Council by Donald Irving,
Mary Ryan, Jacqueline Kallal, and Clifford Mirocko. Georgia Reidel was a member
of the Queen's court.
Our Junior year was a combination of a great many activities. First, to de-
monstrate our great dramatic ability, we presented 'Charley0s Aunt' which star-
red Victor Sisson as the owner of the dual personality. We sponsored a movie and
also sold candy to raise the funds needed to finance the prom. This social event
will be remembered by those who attended as the finest and most beautiful in
many a year. We used a ULove Shop' as our theme, and chose Ralph Trieger as dir-
ector of the decorations. r A
Our officers were Victor Sisson, president:, June Spanggard, vicer president:
Beatrice Ashe, secretary: Donald Heath, treasurerg Miss Reynolds and Miss Welker
were our efficient class advisors. Joan Felter and Dolores Gross were elected
cheerleaders. Peggy Harvey showed her wonderful journalistic ability as co-ed1t-
or of the annual. June Spanggard attended the Queen as the junior representative
in the Homecoming festivities. Representatives in Student Council were Dorothy
Scott, Gertrude Hawkins, Mary Ryan, Ralph Trieger, Wesley Reeves, and Donald
The last few pages of our high school memory book' will be filled with the
pleasant thoughts of our senior year. We sponsored a Christmas dance which was
greatly enjoyed by all who attended. Members of the senior class provided the
variety of entertainment. Georgia Reidel presided as Homecoming queen and was
duly crowned by Ralph Trieger, captain of the football team. Joyce ,0fteQlh1,

This is it! Finally the time had come. ,After four years of struggling, to-
night we, the class of 1946, were graduating. The night was, well, to be per-
fectly frank, it was hot and muggy. It took scads of energy to breathe and the
perspiration trickled down my forehead. The atmosphere was stifling. WI shall
just put down my head and close my eyes for a minutef, I drowsily said. Oh, this
feels marvelous. It makes me feel so sleepy. too. It seems as if I'm just
drifting along among the clouds. Wait a minute, I gg drifting through the clouds
in a rocket ship Itfs swooping down over some little village and we're gliding
right above the street. There comes a man with a little sign in his shirt that
flashes on and off and says HEAT AT JOE'S'. Why, you know he almost looks like?
it is! Ralph Trieger. I think I'll follow him. We're passing a coat- shop by
the name of Reidel's Ritzy Raps where cloaks are designed by Donald Irving and
modeled by his lovely wife, Geraldyn Gresens. Next door is Kufalk's Bean Cannery
and there is Mrs. Kufalk walking out with Bob. Why, it's that former luscious
looking blonde, Helen Wolf. Oh now we've come to a school. I wonder if we
might take a peak in the window? Here is the kindergarten room as it should be,
and our lovely teacher is Miss Dorothy Scott, better known these days as Mrs.
Myles Van Duzer. Myles, who is still trying to think of jokes, corresponds vol-
uminously with June .Spanggard who runs a small school nHow to Remember a Joken.
Ralph Trieger, whom I have been following, has just stepped into a building,
Joe's Place. Who should the owners be but Joe Sterbenz and his cute little wife,
Mary Ryan. PegIHarvey, the head waitress, is just bringing a double coke to her
intimate friend, Leroy Ellis, who is the town's only plumber.
Since Ralph has stopped here for a short coke, I'll have to continue onlmy
.way alone. Passing along the main thorough-fare, we find Raymond Toft directing
traffic at Main and Lake streets.. Presently he seems to be having a great deal
of difficulty with a young man who has just landed his helicopter in the middle
of the avenue and his challenging wife who is arguing with the policeman. Why,
of course, it is Robert Holem and Bernice Palaske.
Further down the street the blazing lights of Gross's Grotesque Grotto come
into sight. As we draw closer, we are able to read the sign in front and find
that the UHuba huba Girlsn, Joan Felter, Phyllis Stastny, and Joyce Oftedahl,
are offering their nation famous dances this evening. Oh, we must stop in and
see this! The music of Dolores's orchestra is lovely and the trombonist, Norman
Wilhelmi, is now finishing his solo. Coming on to do her number is the beauti-
ful, ultra-blonde singer, Gertrude Hawkins. It is just about closing time and
the Janitors, Harland French and Clifford Mirocko, who had been a vaudeville
steam in early days, have come in to begin their chores.
Back on the street once more, we find the milkman delivering on his daily
route and singing as he goes. My, but that voice sounds familiar! Of course,
it is Frankie fthe Swedish Nightingale of the Dairyl Olson. There seems to be a
young lady sitting on top of the horse. She must be coming home from work. The
girl looks like Doris Portwich. Now, as she climbs off the horse and walks up
the path of the house across the street, her husband comes out the door - going
What is going on next door. Such a racket! Why, it's Robert January in top
hat and tails. He must have come in a little late, for his wife, Phyllis Chope,
is using slight muscular force getting him into the house. Oh, she's hitting
him. I can feel the pokes she's giving him! It almost feels as though I'm the
one who's getting poked. I ggp My goodness, I'm at Commencement and, oh dear,
Mr. Birkhead is repeating my name over and over. Oh, goodness. I must hurry.
I do so want to graduate!
All these thoughts seem to wander into my mind as I stumble forth to receive

uation over, the graduates clutched their diplomas with zeal. Well done!

February saw the windup of the bas-
ketball season. Games were played with
Palatine and Northbrook on the lst and
the 8th, Since the game with Barring-
ton on the 9th was to be the last home
game of the year, the Pep Club spons-
ored a dance immediately following the
game in celebration of another season
of basketball. Both the Warren and
Grant games, which were played on the
13th and 15th respectively, were away
from home. The district tournament at
Libertyville began the 19th. Since we
defeated Grant on that night, we were
allowed to play the following evening
and lost to Barrington by a dishearg-
ening margin of 1 point. The girls of

not only excells in quantity, but also
in quality. Some of the members do
solo work for assemblies and with the

The lightweight team had a very suc-
cessful season this yeanwinning twelve
out of sixteen games. Because of the
great number of boys out for basket,
ball,and on the short time to practice
before the season started, Antioch had
lost two games before finding a win-
ning combination.The lightweights then
went on to win twelve out of the four-
teen remaining games. After losing to
Barrington the first time they played
them, the lightweights came back to
their home floor to beat Barrington.
This was the Barrington lightweights
only loss of the season. At the end of
the season the lightweights were play-
ing as well or better than any other
team in the conference.

This year Antioch's varsity basket-
ball team had a very unsuccessful sea-
son, winning only four out of eighteen
games. Some of these games were lost
by small margins. The closest andmost
disappointing game of the season was
lost to Barrington by one point. By
losing this game, we were eliminated
from the Libertyville Tournament.
Although the scores were very dis-
couraging, there were always large num-
'bers of Antioch rooters at each game.
The large crowds at the games played
away were made possible, in part, by
the running of special busses to and
from these games.
Even though we are losing two vel-
uable players, Antioch has prospects
of a winning team next season. There

JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM 1945
The prom of 1945, like the many
proms which preceded it, was a success
both artistically and socially. The
evening's activities started with a
dinner by candlelight served in the
library with sophomore boys acting as
waiters. Following dinner, the guests
went into the auditorium for the dance
itself. The decorating scheme here
was especially novel witha WLove Shopn
constructed at the east end.of the
auditorium and a garden scene in front
of the stage. In the center of the
garden was a gold fish nool surrounded
by bleeding hearts. Punch was served
from the Love Shop. The main color
scheme was rose and white. A floor
show made up of junior class enter-
tainers, and a Grand March around the
dance floor provided additional enjoy-
ment for the guests. Dancing to the
music of Bob Langdon and his orchestra
came next which was a fitting climax
to a perfect evening.
JUNIOR-SENIOR PROM 1946
Bright colors and gay Latin -music
set the predominating mood of the 1946
junior senior prom. As tradition has
it, dinner was the first order of the
evening. It was very much like a Mex-
ican fiesta with gayly bedecked tables
and food served by sophomore Whombres?
Following dinner, the guests adjourned
to the' Wpation to enjoy a floor show
and dancing to rhumbas, and tangos.
The mein decorating scheme was Mexican
.with fiesta colors, adobe bricks, som-
breros, and serapies. Punch was served
under palm trees at the eastern end of
the auditorium which was decorated to
look like a Mexican patio. -
