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 Heath. 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, Nas her senior attendant. Our senior play, "The Late Christopher Bean' surpas-. sed the one we gave the year before, and went further to prove our dramaticH lability. We were entertained by the juniors at the annual promand having giten one previously, we appreciated the hard work they had put intoit.

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 towmkl 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 my diploma. 12. UTHEY TAKE THE BEST AND LEAVE THE mesa" Phyllis Chops leaves her reticent manner to George Sass.

Miss Reynolds, having changed her name to Mrs. Tom Dixon, was our advisor, with the help of Mr. Wenet. We were represented in Student Council by Dolores Gross, Gertrude Hawkins, Jerry Gresens, Georgia Reidel, Clifford Mirocko, Robert January, Franklin Olson, and Ralph Trieger. A noteworthy achievement was made by Mary Ryan, who did a fine Job of co-editing the Sequoia. Dolores Gross and Joan Felter again led cheers for the home team and both received their cheerleading letters.' Our last few days of school brought a whirl of excitement to all the' grad- uates. Flag Day ceremonies were carried out with the usual solemn splendor and Baccalaureate services soon followed to give to all the religious touch. Grad- uation over, the graduates clutched their diplomas with zeal. Well done! .f Q QQ. fc, ZWWQWQQ? 45 :iw A 'tn-I Q EQQKEQE ek . I i??' ff'- 14. ETHEL DIXON Hometown: Gurnee, Ill.

CHORUS This year the chorus is the largest branch of the music department,nnmber- ing 196 students in all. The group not only excells in quantity, but also in quality. Some of the members do solo work for assemblies and with the Swing Band. With diligent practice, the chorus, under the supervision of: Mr. Von Holwede, has sung its way into the hearts of many with a variety of good music. The chorus also furnishes entertainment for the people of the community during the course of the school year. Some of the highlights of the year have been the Christmas concert, given for the benefit of the Red Crossg the spring concert, and a short concert to brighten up the Com- mencement exercises for the graduates. u 'J fg 42 'F-Z?-f 51.

Making a better showing with 'each successive game the Antioch team improved until, near the end of the season, they were one of the 'best teams in the conference. The win over Northbrook, during Home- coming week, and the close game with Grant, who became Conference Champions, showed the improvements of the team. With all but four of the regular players returning next year, Antioch's prospects are good. Although Coach Kruzan is losing his two best playersg Ralph Trieger, Captain of the team and All Conference Fullback, and Joe Ster- benz, All Conference Tackleg he will have more experienced players to choose from next year than he had this year.

DON GAA LIGHTWEIGHT BASKETBALL 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. First Row R Kufalk, G. Morris, W. Kuligowski, D. Weber, F. Olson, K.

Some of these games were lost by small margins. The closest andmost disappointing game of the season was ? 'sa' 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 are four members of this team return- ing next year, plus many players who have been gaining experience on the lightweight team. First Row: Jones, Trieger, Sterbenz, Mattson, Heuer.

Under the able direction of Miss Leitha Paulsen, the play was a great success, with the cast giving a splendid performance. The story is centered around one character who is dead and buried be- fore the play even begins. Christopher Bean in his living state had been an artist. When he died , however, he left nothing but an unpaid doctor bill and a few worthless, dirty canvases. These paintings suddenly, take on some value and a mad scramble occurs in which many people are willing to pay the doctor bill and buy these pictures Most of the action of the play is cen- tered around Abby, the maid, to whom Christopher Bean remains a really won- derful memory of happiness. ,nnuunlnli ,Ma ...Zi up ,f K of Cast, at ease.

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.
