Many things have happened within m wall -- things which would be very
amusing if revealed to your attentive ears. For instance, at the beginning
of the '43 school year, I saw a large group of freshmen entering the building
from various doors. They were all typical looking, but there was that usual
awed look upon their bright and smiling faces. They were just coming out
of that adolescent stage when they were all arms and legs. Their ability to
make new friends and acquaintances was soon put to work, and they set out to
accomplish many great things. First they chose class officers, who were:
Duane Weber, president: Jerry Pregenzer, vice-president: Eleanor Schaefer,
secretary: Lucille Kuhn, treasurer. Student Council representatives were:
Kathleen Gindick and Jerry Pregenzer. JoAnne Saylor was elected freshman
attendant to the Queen's Court for the Homecoming activities. The class
advisors were Miss Kruse and Miss Paulsen. In January they gave a party for
the Sophomores. All the class was laying groundwork for future sports,
music, dramatics, and other activities.
The Sophomore year was started off on the right foot by welcoming the
freshmen with a fun-packed party, which broke down all barriers. Howie
Nevitt proved to be an enlightening Master of Ceremonies. The class officers
were: Dan Jones, Presidentg Len Mattson, Vice-president: Jim Fields,
Secretary: and Mary Jean McCann, Treasurer. The Sophomore representatives
in Student Council were: Jerry Pregenzer, Duane Weber, Esther Weber, and
Jane Nelson. Gerry Sass represented dur class in the Homecoming activities.
Due to the large class, our advisors weres' Miss Paulsen, Mrs. Funkhouser,
and Mr. Von Holwede.
The Junior year was a very active one for all. It was started by elect-
ing Len Mattson, President: Ray Ohlgren, Vice-president: George Grunow,
Secretaryg and Mary Jean McCann, Treasurer. The class advisors were:
Miss Paulsen, Mr. Von Holwede, and Mrs. Lavold, who was later replaced by
Mr. Breese. The Student Council meetings were attended by: Alyce Pedersen,
Pat Milz, Jane Nelson, Lee Ipsen, Jerry Pregenzer, and Ken Heuer. Candy
sales, which were under the direction of Betty Ring, helped to furnish money
for the successful prom. The Broadway production, WJanieW, was presented
to a packed house on November 8 and 9, under the capable direction of Mr.
Samuel Wenet. The play revolved around the trials and tribulations of teen?
agers in a small town, which was affected by the impact of war. The setting
for the prom was a Mexican patio. Soft lights and mellow music set the mood
for the evening dancing. Preparation for the prom called for the cooperation
of the class, due to the fact that there was but one day to complete the
decorations after the Senior Play. Leonard Mattson, our king, chose Gerry
Gresens to be queen. The Junior boys Cl6D proved outstanding in various
sports. The girls, too, did their share by participating in all GAA activi-
ties. Several girls were chosen on the All-Star team and walked off with the
game. Nancy Ellis was elected cheerleader and also the attendant to the
Queen's Court for Homecoming. Len Mattson surprised everyone in attaining
the co-editorship of the annual. On Flag Day, Len Mattson received the Amer-
ican flag on behalf of the Junior class, and Jerry Pregenzer recited the
history of our flag. Yes, it was a busy year, but the one ahead held more
fun and at the same time maintained its seriousness.
But let the Seniors tell us about this one ..... ......
Here we were at the top of the ladder. We had always looked upon that
position of 'Senior Big Shot' with longing. But when we got there, it proved

You are cordially invited
to attend the reunion of the
class of '47 of the Antioch
Township High School held at
the home of Mr. 5 Mrs. Raymond
Ohlgren on May 29, 1960, at
eight o'clock p.m.
The chimes have just finished their melodious notes, and the foot-
steps of Mrs. Ohlgren, the former Betty Ring, can be heard approaching
the door. Incidentally, their home is located in Channel Lake and is
furnished beautifully. Ray is now a Civil Service worker. As the door
opens the hostess greets Miss Barbara -- Madam Hortonski -, who is now a
famous ballet dancer just arriving from a recent tour of Europe to ap-
pear in the leading role of the 'Ballet Russel. The next arrival is
Mr. James Fields, the famous lecturer, who is no touring the country
and lecturing to Women's clubs on WJuvenile Delinquencyn. Along with
him is his secretary, Miss Gerry Rzysko, Among the others to arrive
are: Mr. 5 Mrs. Sorenson, cafeteria manager at A.T.H.S. Cafederia. She
has to support the family. Mrs. Sorenson is the former Elsie Winfield.
Miss JoAnne Saylor, who is singing with Sammy Kaye's WSwing 'n Swayn
music is escorted by George Sass, who is the leading trumpet player in
Spike Jones' revised band. The newly married couple, Mr. d Mrs. David
Arthur, have just arrived. Mrs. Arthur is the former Rosemary Slazes.
Dave is now a traffic cop in the loop district of Antioch, and he claims
he's got the speed! To add a bit of gossip, Rosie just married Dave
because Bob couldn't support her! Len Mattson has just casually strolled
in. He is now an electrical engineer and claims he gets a charge out
of life. A telegram was just received from the Father Marz. He is una
able to come because of bad flying conditions. Roger now holds the po-
sition of Bishop in one of the cathedrals at Rome. Dar Bauer and her
husband Dick Hansen, who now own and operate the local ice-cream parlor,
'Snow White'sH, have just arrived. Dick's red hair has fascinated Dar
ever since their first days of high school, and she just couldn't refuse
his Umodestn proposal. Mary Jean Maplethorpe, who has taken over Mr. Vnn
Holwede's place in the Music Department at A.T.H.S. and Gerald Hunter,
who has replaced Mr. Kutil as the head of the Agriculture Department, just
walked in together. Mary Ann Poulsen just arrived a little breathless due
to an overtime game in which her basketball team, nThe Poulsen Pivoteersn,
have just won by a two point margin, and who now hold the state title.
Wally Garver, the speedway king, enters with an authoratative air about
him. He now holds the title of the Indianapolis W5OO'. Esther Weber is
now the owner of the fashionable 'Tess' Sweet Shopn, which was formerly
known as Ted's. Juanita Heath, who is now the second Kate Smith, entered
with her chauffeur, and still faithful servant, Hay Atwood. Ken Heuer,

Our representatives to the
Student Council were, Barbara
Barthel and Jimmy Kennedy. Mary
Ann Quilty was the freshman at-
tendant in the Queen's Court at
Homecoming. Her escort was Fred
Wolf. We were well represented
in all activities and clubs.
As can be understood by our
Ugraduateu brothers, it was a
great change for us from the days
of spending six hours in the same
classroom to high school where
everything we do is Won the double!
So let us hope that they overlook
some of our mishaps. u

FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
This club is an agricultural club under
the direction of Mr. Kutil.
The members enter many different judg-
ing contests in which they usually come
out close to, if not on top.
Each member has at least one project to
complete during the course of the year
which he proudly displays at the various
shows and fairs.
This year the whole club has a special
project of getting an oak tree, a bronze
plaque, as memorials for those who gave
their lives in World War II.
The year is climaxed by a banquet for
the fathers by the boys.

PEP CLUB '
The purpose of the Pep Club is to
promote enthusiasm, and most of all,
good sportsmanship at games and at
other athletic events. The girls in
the Pep Club cheer equally loud
whether the team is winning or lo-
sing. Because of the large sum of
money in the treasury, the girls
gave a 'Holly Dance' on December 20.
Everyone who came enjoyed a very
cheerful and Christmas-like dance.
The club also sold pop and candy
at some of the games. The officers

This year's Junior Varsity, f
as voted by the Conference coa-
ches, was composed of only fresh-
men and sophomores. The team
started off the season with lit-
tle experience, but under the
able coaching of Mr. Paynic, they
started to show a great improve-
The opening game of the
season was taken, but after that
they dropped four in a row. At
the end of the season each team
upon meeting the Antioch J-v's,
was ready for a good battle.

The Varsity of this year had
quite a few of the returning letter
men of last year and looked forward
to a good season. The season was
started by taking the first three
games, but then the next two hard-
fought battles were dropped a few
points each. With Coach Kruzan as
Chief, the Antioch warriors took
over half of the games. During the
Christmas holiday a tournament was
held at Wauconda. Antioch took the
honors by beating each of two teams
by a large score. The first place
trophy was presented to the cap-
tain, Daniel Jones.

The Chorus this year consists of one
hundred and fifty members. Because of its
large membership, it was necessary to
have three separate choruses for practice.
The Chorus participated in the Christmas
Concert, which was presented December 19th
In preparation for this concert, Mr. Von
Holwede, our director, had quite a problem
- how to fit all three choruses on the Q
stage at once: but he did it. The Chorus
sang several songs carrying out the Christ-
mas Spirit. The Concert was well attended
and a big success.
The Choruses are now working in prepara-
tion for the Spring Concert and for the
Festival Day at Wauconda. Forty of the
chorus members will represent the school
at Festival Day, which is to be held on
May 5 and 6. Most of the chorus members
are anxious to attend. H
All the accomplishments of the chorus
are credited to the direction of our lead-
er, Hans Von Holwede, and the co-operation
of the students.

games. The original band also played and marched between
halves of the home football games, as an added entertain-
ment for the spectators.

A fitting climax to the football season was our two-day Homecoming
celebration. For weeks in advance the halls of our school buzzed with rumors
of who would be queen, who would be in the court, the secret plans for car
and float decorations and finally withe the inevitable query, 'Who will win
the game?'. As in the past, the Student Council, under the direction of
Mr. T.R. Birkhead, sponsored the celebration.
On Thursday evening, the night before the game, the annual Pow-Wow was
held in the Village Park. The evening was filled with songs, cheers, and
impromptu speeches from the members of the faculty, team, and student body.
The cheers rang high as the team members cast an effigy of Palatine's team
into the flaming bonfire. An early climax was brought to the fun as the
students staggered back down Main Street from the maddening, circling snake
dance, led by Mr. M. Kruzan. S
The parade, held Friday afternoon, was equally successful. The parade
was led by the band and the strutting majorettes. Following were the floats
and decorated cars, the most original of which brought prizes to the owners.
The student body marched behind or rode in Jeeps. The Queen, Betty Ring, and
her court also were central figures as the parade marched down Main Street.
For the night game the goal posts had been decorated in the colors of
our school as well as those of our opponent, Palatine. Leading the Pirates
to defeat through a 7-O score, our Sequoits became the heroes of the evening.
I mediately following the game the traditional dance was held in the audito-
rium, which also had been decorated in colors of the schools. The spirit of
victory turned the floor into a maze of swirling, happy faces as students and
alumni alike danced to Ray Paulson's orchestra. Later the floor was cleared
and the throne prepared to receive the queen. Betty Ring, radiant in white,
was crowned by the Chief Sequoit, Duane Weber. Her court included Gerry Sass,
Joan Conrad, June Hunter and Mary Ann Quilty.
Though happy with victory and the sight of graduate Sequoits returning
again to pay tribute to their Alma Mater, the students and visitors regret-
ted the passage of another year's celebration.

Johnny Clover has been made the editor of the high school newspaper,
The Penggin. He sets up a real office in his home,for it is just across
the street from the school. He gets his pal, Spud Erwin to help him,
for they are determined to put out a real he- an paper.
To his great surprise Johnny finds that Susan Blake has been selected
by the girls to be his co-editor, for the girls firmly believe that any
good newspaper must have girls on the staff. Johnny and Spud try hard
to discourage Susan in all of her efforts, but she shows such unusual
talent when it comes to understanding them, especially when they need
Susan's great desire to help involves the boys in no end of trouble.
They become entangled with the police, create a society scandal, bring
to a climax an unexpected romance, and practically disgrace the school.
Inxthe end all the things are made right because of the unexpected
jovial manner in whichihe community accepts the scandalous but complicat
ed items of the The Pengggn.

do?n Betty Lou Maxwell and Bernadine
Smith are a couple of questions and
problems who are always up to something.
As the day starts, Papa Maxwell learns
that he has been chosen the new head of

sends a heart-breaking letter to the
lovelorn column. Wilbur writes a very
romantic play in which he makes his
father pose as the leading actor. As
he does so, the lady from the lovelorn
column comes to check on Betty Lou's
story and becomes involved in the
dramatic love scene.
when the Citizens' Committee comes to in-

same circus, entered arm in arm. At some of the matinees this twosome
sometimes play the role of Mutt 5 Jeff. Gerry Sass is unable to come
because she has taken a permanent position in a Physchiatric Ward in a
nearby hospital. Delores Smoak, the owner of NSmoke Smoke A Cigarette
Inc.N bumped into George Grunow, the champion ditch digger of the pope
ular organization the W.P.A., on the walk leading up to the house.
Aldona Berkiel just received the title of Lady Aldona. She is considered
the best we11-groomed woman of the world. Betty Gregory, who is hopefully
waiting for her steady beau to graduate was not present because of
other plans made earlier. Corky Hills, who owns many farms in the Lake
County region and who has just won the state championship in hog-raising,
just came in the door with his date for tonight. She is Miss Mabel Norman
supervisor of the Antioch exchange of the Illinois Bell Telephone Company.
June Kumpik, who is modeling Florida styles for the discriminating woman
in a New York Shoppe, and her model friend, Joan Crawford, head of the
Lingerie Department, were the Wfashion platesn of the evening. Bennie
Drury, the new designer of women's clothes and accessories, escorted these
two lovely models. Mr. and Mrs. Ohlgren were notified earlier in the
evening that Bob Eppers, now a beachcomber, was unable to come because he
prefers the Hquietu life. Mr. Orville Hairrell, who is writing another
book on WEtiquetteH, is having a serious discussion with Phil Burke, the
famous dramatic critic. Alice Pedersen is now making a tour of the world
and is, incidentally, looking for the nidealn man. Results so far have
been fairly satisfactory. Jean Vos, who is now head of the love-lorn
column of the new flash edition of the WAntioch Newsn, is scouting around
for more information. Viola Pedersen is now the head baker at Schultz's
Bakery which is located across the street from its rival, Pedersen's
Bakery. Jean Kiehl, who is now punching tickets and collecting fares on
buses, is hopefully waiting for her companion, Harry Smith, who considers
the name of Smith too common and has changed it to Jones. He now is a
successful bus driver on the Antioch-Waukegan route. Wally Message, noted
English Literature teacher who has just received his Master of Arts degree
fCon't. next pagel
arrived a little late also. He was late due to the unexpected lecture on
Uhomanticismn. Eleanor Schaefer is also late due
to the inconveniences 6f
her most recent divorce fTommy Manvillej. Preston Reckers, better known
as WSwiftyW, has finally arrived. He was doing the 100-yard dash in the
county track meet out of town and his car broke down. UBetter late than
nevern is the motto of the new red-headed tycoon of the movies, popularly
known as WFrankie Swoon Bait', and formerly known as Jerry Pregenzer. On
his face is a broad smile and on his arm is Mrs. Swoon Bait, better known
as Jean Pagels who has finally caught him on the rebound after many rea
peated attempts. On the heels of this charming couple is Miss Patricia
Milz, the town mortician, who was detained because of the arrival of a
new customer who needed her immediate attention.
Otherwise she claims
that her business is very dead. This concluded the list of expected ar-
rivals and the entertainment planned for the evening proceeded under the
capable supervision of the charming hostess. The
tances brought back memories of their youth. Was
ago they had all banged upon the same lockers and
stairs in a mad frenzy, fearful of being tardy to
gladly have skipped? Had they actually once been

it possible that years
soared up the same
a class they would
dance-crazed bobby sox-
ers with nothing more important to worry about than a date and costume
for next week's party? How foolish it all seemed
now, and yet, how dear!
Some who possessed worldly treasures now would gladly have forsaken a
part of them for a chance to recapture some of their lost youth. Reali-

valley df dreams and covered their emotions with smiles, light jokes, and

As the days rolled by, it seemed that stars were seen in
the eyes of the girls and boys every time the Prom was men-
tioned. Everyone was looking forward to a heaven--spent evening
A splash of color, mmhrggog, a Mexican gatio, with glim-
mering stars overhead was the scene of happiness, gay festi-
vity and laughter for all those who attended the Prom.
They say all good things have a beginning and ours seemed
to have begun with a satis-
fying dinner and e. tantali-
zing dessert served by
candlelight in the gma-
sium. After this meal our
appetites were thoroughly
satisfied by the meal
served to us by the girls
and 'boys from the Sophomore
Following the dinner,
the guests adjourned to the
