At least the dey had C0mG- Yes. the day we were to begin our high school career. With a
group of about fifty-five bright, intelligent-looking prospects we nervously walked down the
giant halls of A.T.H.S. for the first time since Eighth Grade Day
During our first class meeting we elected our class officers who were Tom Poulos, presi-
dent: Rudy Kacer, vice-president: June Hunter, secretary: and Shirley Miller, treasurer. On
January 28 a sudden blow came to everyone when we learned our classmate, Rudy Kacer, had passed
axay. John Holub was then elected to fill the office of vice-president for the remainder of
In order to become better acquainted with the sophomore class, they gave us a party which
proved to be very successful and which was enjoyed by all. Later in the year we freshmen gave
the sophomores a return party that was a box social and an old-time dance.
Our class was well represented in all activities at A.T.H.S. Jane Hunter and Laurence
Reidel were representatives on the Student Council: Jane and June Hunter were selected as cheer-
leaders: and all clubs had a good share of freshmen members. June and Jane Hunter were elected
by the football team as freshmen attendants to the queen's court for the Homecoming dance. The
freshmen also had their share of assembly entertainers with Yvonne Lux, Norma Jarnigo, Dolly
Ries, and Joan Hughes performing at either a pep assembly or a concert. Our class sponsors were
Miss ueber and Miss Krueger.
In our second year we were a little better acquainted and waited for the opportunity to
initiate the freshmen as they had previously initiated us. we were then sophomores and, our
class had expanded to sixty eager and active members.
The first thing we did to start the year was to elect officers. They were June Hunter,
president: Jane Hunter, vice-president: Sally Flint, secretary: and Jackie Schroeder, treasurer.
We welcomed the new freshmen with a party in October, and in April the freshmen gave us a return
party. Annabelle Barthel, Verna Kufalk, Bob Scott, and Tom Poulos were our representatives to
the Student Council.
During this year the Hunter twins and Annabelle Barthel were elected as cheerleaders, and
all clubs were well represented with sophomore member. June Hunter was elected by the football
team as sophomore attendant to the queen's court for the Homecoming dance. Our class sponsors
were Mrs. Quedenfeld and Miss Kreuger.
We then began our most exciting year of them all, our junior year. It was full of many
activities, much hard work, and a great deal of planning as we had a class play to present be-
side the prom, our biggest event of the year. Our class officers were Tom Poulos, president:
Bob Simon, vice-president: Beverly Lasco, secretary: and Bob Scott, treasurer.
In November we presented the light comedy. Miss Adventure, under the direction of Miss
Darrough. In order to earn money, we sold pop and hot dogs at games, sold candy after school,
and sponsored J.A.G. dances after basketball and football games.
The Hunter twins, Marlene Heder, Bob Simon, Floyd McKinney and Bob Scott were representa-
tives to the Student Council. Our sponsors were Miss McKinney and Miss Meiners.
Marlene Nader was chosen as junior attendant to the queen's court for the Homecoming dance.
Our banquet and prom, held may 22, had a Dutch theme, and Tom Poulos president, crowned Jane
Hunter Queen of the Prom, and she was attended by Norma Jarnigo and Marlene Nader.
By our senior year when we were.the upperclassmen, our members had dwindled to forty-six.
Beverly Lasco was chosen Homecoming Queen, and Verna Kufalk was her senior attendant. Our class
officers were Bob Scott, president: Jim Zimmerman, vice-president: Norma Jarnigo, secretary,
and Verna Kufalk, treasurer. Our sponsors were Miss McKinney and Miss Meiners.
Bob Simon was president of the Student Council with Elsie Farnsworth, Annabelle Barthel,
Joan Smoc, Marlene Nader. Floyd McKinney. Bud Reidel. Bob Scott, and Vic Conrad as senior re-
presentatives. In May we presented the comedy Tish under the direction of Miss Meiners.
As the covered wagons roll slowly toward the newly-opened territory of California in
181-P9, we find an old prospector talking to his young son.
'Well, son, this has been a long journey: but as I see it, things should be easier soon.
In fact, the other night while we were all sitting around the fire, I dozed off and had a
strange dream in which I found myself in the year 1959 wandering through the streets of a
town in Illinois called Antioch. The first thing I saw was a little house owned by a cou le
of newly-weds. The former Elsie Farnsworth had a gift for keeping house. I guess that was
why they were so happy.
'This town called Antioch used to be a small place, but energetic Floyd McKinney showed
his ability for big business by incorporating the stores of Barnstable and Brogan, William's
Department Store, and MariAnne's into a second Marshall Field's called Floyd Field's.
'Upon entering Floyd's store, the first thing I saw was Johanna Cobb and Ella Mae Edwards,
the Bookkeeper and the secretary, working very hard. Then m attention was attracted to an
argument going on between Bob Scott, the floor walker, and the Reidels. It aeemed as if Edith
insisted on bringing her pet duck into the store: and even though Bud told her to leave it
with the rest of the ducks on the farm, she had to bring it along.
'After that little incident I decided to wander around the store and went to the men's
department. There was Wayne Polsgrove, the head of the department, selling a new suit to Bill
Vos. After B111 took over the lumber and coal company, he became very dapper and had been
buying a new suit every month. He must have kept the store going!
'Grac1ous, what could all that racket be? It was coming from the basement where the
janitor, Bob Simon, was relaxing by playing jazz music on his sax. That music certainly
did not sound like a minuet.
'I got into a strange box-like contraption that took me to the second floor where I saw
Art Ducom un, the store decorator, talking to Sally Flint and Jackie Schroeder, the two most
exclusive Floyd Field models. Jackie seemed to be telling Art how his wife, the former Nancy
Reeves, should fix her hair for the society ball.
uNext was the farm section: Noel Elfering was in charge of that. He gave free demon-
strations on some phase of farming every Tuesday morning.
'The store got crowded, so I walked down the street to the horseless carriage barn
called the Chevrolet garage managed by Ronald Gaa. Ronald told me there must have been a big
teachers' meeting that day because Rex Stearns, the principal of the kindergarten, and Jane
Hunter, one of the teachers, had been in to have their carriages checked. Jane told Ronald
that June Hunter, her twin: Marlene Nader: and Lynette Keating were all nurses in the new
hospital for which Jim Zimmerman. the famous surgeon, and his assistant. Norma Jarnigo, had
'While Rex and I were sitting there talking, Annabell Barthel and Joan Hughes walked by
in their smart-looking uniforms. Rex explained that they were hostesses on a carriage that
flew through the sky piloted by another native of Antioch, Bay Heath. Al Appanaitis and Tom
Poulos, both All-American basketball players, walked by with Verna Kufalk, Marilyn Ries. and
Yvonne Lux. Verna was playing piano at Orchestra Hall, Marilyn was singing in the opera,
Carmen, and Yvonne was a professional dancer in Chicago. Just then Elaine Geng, a photographer
for Vic Conrad's Police Gazettg stopped them for a picture.

'I said goodbye to Rex and wandered into a glass building where the petite manager, Bev
Lasco, and her assistants, Sara Davis and George Miller, were crossing different flowers to
produce new specimens. George was also studying to be an agriculture teacher.
'While I was admiring the beautiful flowers, Joan Smoc, the cashier from the local
restaurant, and Ed Kranc, the cook who specialized in French dishes, came in to buy flowers
for a class reunion that night. They mentioned that all their classmates would be present
except George Gossell and Lois Riegler, who would be unable to attend because of their teaching
duties at Knox College. They were especially awaiting the arrival of Frank Benes, who had
recently been elected the tallest hum n in the world after having grown to the phenomenal
height of seven feet eleven inches. He was to be accompanied by Dorothy Py and Anita woolner,
his private secretaries who handled his fan mail.
NAt that point I was suddenly awakened from my dream by a burning ember which rolled from
the campfire and singed my bare foot.n

Bob Scott earned the
Award this spring. Bob was
not a star: he was the
steady, dependable type of
player that meant much to the
team during the year. He was
the fellow who called the
huddles in football, quieted
the boys, and kept them work-
in as a team.
Scotty was a valuable
man not only in football but
in all the other sports as
well. The fact that Bob was
never sent from any game
because of fouls proves what
a good sport he was. That is
a record for any player to

Tom was good as a fresh?
man: and as the years rolled
by, he became progressively
better. He was good at both
offense and defense, but foot-
ball was not his only talent.
He excelled in basketball,
track, and baseball too.
His record should speak
for itself. Next year he will
be greatly missed by the
Antioch's football team this year, coach by Nr. Kruznn, got off
to a had start early in the season. The line was big and rugged, the
backfield average-sized, but the boys lacked experience. Although the
tqam WOR only two of the conference games this peer, they were in there
fighting every minute of every game. The team was handicapped by an
epidemic of mumps which kept some of the players out of the games from
one to two weeks.
Next season, with most of the boys back from this year and the
boys from the lower classes Coach Kruzan hopes to have a team that will
give any one in the conference a tough battle.

The Sequoia Music Makers worked hard and steadily this
year with gratifying results. The members of the swing band
volunteered their time and effort to the practices, since it
was an extra-curricular activity. They played at dances and
and concerts and went to the festival at Wauconda to provide
dance music for the students.
Mr. Von Holwede, pianist and director of the band, was
competently aided by the members and other non-band students
in shaping concert ideas and arranging appearance routines.

grams consisting of musical entertainers, speakers, and movies.

secular numbers, and a versatile, young tenor who played his own accom-
paniment entertained the audience with a program showing how mus1c
influences a person throughout his lifetime. Previews of all the
concerts presented by the music department and the grade school music
students were witnessed by the student body.
The University of Wisconsin sponsored Captain Hook, an Alaskan
explorer and deep-sea diver: Michael Klein, a lawyer who spoke on
youth problems: and Norman Barthel, an Ethiopian explorer.
Vocational movies were shown to help the students when they seek
jobs: and uThe House of Seven Gables,n nhomeo and Juliet,n and Huckle-
berry Finnn were also seen durinc assemblies for the school.
The American Legion participated in an assembly to commemorate
the observance of Armistice Day. The Gold Star Mothers were special
guests at the program.

its class time practicing for two concert appearances. The
first was the traditional Christmas concert, which featured
carols, religious numbers, and holiday songs. Barney Cosgrove
James Kennedy, Joanne Midgley, George Miller, Marion Miller,
and Shirley Ross sang solos,
The annual spring concert was presented April 22. Light
and gay melodies contrasted with the reverent, religious music
of Easter. The hard-working chorus was directed by Mr. Hans
Some of the chorus members attenoed the annual Spring
Festival Day at Wauconda April 25 at which a Yorthvestern

The A.T.H.S. music students presented a successful Christmas concert
on December 20 to a capacity crowd.
The concert was divided into two sections with the serious music
being furnished by the chorus and the popular music provided by the
bequoia Music Makers.
The beautiful harmony of the chorus inspired the audience with the
melodious Yuletide spirit, while the swing band's funny acts ranging all
the way from two dolls on roller skates and the inevitable Santa Claus
to a clown doll announcer presented the gayer mood of Christmas.
Spurred on by the results of the Christmas concert, a hard-working
crew planned the annual spring concert which was held on March 18.
The theme of the program was March Medley, which starred not only
popular songs of yester-year but also those that were occupying a spot on
the hit parade at the same time.
The colorful Easter bonnets worn by all members of the band and Mr.
V0nHolwede's stove-pipe hat complemented the floral Setting of the stage.

Jimior' Class pfay
,Stranger in the Night, a mystery-comedy play in three acts,
was presented by the juniors on November 18 and 19. It was under
the direction of Miss Jeannette Darrough.
The plot of the play revolves around the activities of a
small gift shop located in the lobby of a hotel. A newspaper-
man, having overheard the details of a murder plot wherein the
victim is to be selected by the purchase of a certain gift item
from the shop, comes to the store to try to find the item in
which the name of the victim is concealed. The plot involves
the process of trying to find the gift before the murderer could
purchase it. The conclusion was surprising and thrilling.
Sylvia Lee and Mable Crane, owners of the shop, were played
by Pat Kelleher and Joanne Midgley. Robert Small portrayed the
part of Grant Terry, the newspaperman. Other members of the
cast included Melfred Stillson, Betty Jean McDougall, Robert
Dieball, Many Rose Webb, James Kennedy, Clarita Greenlee, Jack
Mahoney, Jacqueline Onstad, and Barbara Barthel.
Peter Poulos headed the stage management with the assis-
tance of June Petersen. Georgia Saylor handled the properties.

Miss Meiners directed the senior class play, Tish, which was
presented May 5 and 6. June Hunter worked with Miss Meiners as a
student assistant, and Jim Zimmerman was the stage manager.
This play is one of Mary Roberts Rinehart's stories made into
an exciting comedy. The plot tells how Tish decided to get closer
to nature by touring the country. She bought a car and set out with
Lizzie and Aggie, her two friends. Lizzie wired Charlie Sands, who
flew to the Southwest to meet them where they stayed at the Eagle
Hotel. Tish had several exciting experiences such as driving through
a plate glass window and becoming the center of international com-
plications. She always managed to come out on top, however.
The cast of characters was as follows:

Homecoming 376 stlvltfes
The Homecoming festivities began October 28 with the parade which
this year was held for the first time at night. The school drum major-
ettes led the band at the beginning of the parade, and the colorful floats
and Fecorated cars followed. The Homecoming Queen and her court led the
student body in the procession.
After parading through the downtown district of Antioch, the groun
returned to the high school where a povhwow was held. The bonfire was
lit by the football captain, Tom Poulos. The effigy of Barrington was
thrown into the flames, and speeches were made by several members of the
faculty, the football captain, and Coach Kruzan. Group singing was led
by Mr. Von Holwede on the accordian. A snake dance was held afterwards
on the football field.
The football game vas held Friday night, October 29: but much to the
disappointment of the Antioch team and fans, the opposing Barrington
Broncos downed the Sequoits 50-O. At the close of the game, the tradi-
tional Homecoming dance was held in the decorated auditorium. During the
dance Beverly Lasco, dressed in white, was crowned Homecoming Queen by
the Sequoit captain, Tommy Poulos. Verna Kufalk, Dorothy Verke, Enid
Karolius, and Pose Ann McGreal served as her attendants.

On May 22, 1948, the junior class entertained the senior, their
guests, and the faculty at the annual prom.
The evening began with the delicious dinner in the gymnasium
followed by speeches given by Tom Poulos, Presily Bratrude, Mr. Birk-
head, and Mr. Petty. Students from the freshmen and sophomore classes
served the banquet.
After eating, the guests danced to the music of Lou Va1's orches-
tra in the beautifully decorated auditorium where the scenery carried
out a Dutch theme. Punch was served from a huge windmill in the rear
of the room. The spokes of the windmill sparkled as spotlights shone
on them, and the ceiling was made of blue and white streamers repre-
senting the sky. Below the stage was a pond, which added to the Dutch
During an intermission in the dance Jane Hunter and Tom Poulos
were crowned Queen and King of the Prom by Presily Bratrude and Elaine
