Mann 'poneco id This year was basically the same as any high school year; we studied, had fun, and experienced sad moments of trial and error. There were games and dances; voices were hoarse from rooting and singing. There were brief moments of glory for some in sports and for some in musical and dramatic productions. All shared the hopeless reality' of examinations and deadlines, the semester grades, and the noontime cafeteria rush. But what made this year special? What is it that will make us long remember and cherish these impressions? It was the job of this yearbook staff to presene these memories for you in the form of the METEOR. The staff, however, has furnished only the outlines of the story. The rest is up to the individual, for each event will bring back a different mood and memory to every one of us. It is not today that we will fully appreciate the METEOR: but rather tomorrow when it is not so easy to think back on 1965, that we will treasure the memories this book has stored for us. To obtain continuity for our book, the staff sought a theme or central idea around which to weave the ’65 story. After much deliberation and thought, we agreed on a "peoples” theme—specificially the students of Harlem High. To add flavor to our book, we coined some clever phrases such as "who we are” to represent the classes and "what we did” for activities. But the METEOR only pertains to the past, the 1965 school year. However, its theme may be projected into the future by just changing the tense of the phrases. For, the answer to "who will we be" and "what will we do" depends on how advantageously we utilize the opportunities and experiences of our high school years. Tomorrow's achievements arc built on today's accomplishments and challenges; and perhaps one of the most easily met. yet most rewarding, is the challenge of people. The warm relationship and close association with classmates and the valued friendships of faculty members and administrators, all make an important contribution to the personality of each student. Through these friendships, interests broaden and ideas develop, helping each student become better prepared to meet the challenge of tomorrow. 0JU VoaA-vy _6-voA Editor in Chief 1965 METEOR 3w£e t 06 'rtycmlettc cue dtuy 6ucl t you, s4e cucuuene cutcC ue Coeene too 7l e Cl zc6 you eeic6 yu e s4hcC cue Cl cdeesi you to fru ce So fryi 'Zlcviletft ycue all yea 6e4l, 71- 1R z6- «t6.

The sophomores this year met the challenge of high school with great enthusiasm, not only for their class and their athletic teams, but also their school. Freshmen from three different junior high schools were united for the first time during this—their sophomore year. "Juniors, are you with us?" came the second cry; and the entire junior class stood and clamored "FIGHT! FIGHT!” Members of this class contributed to varsity teams, school plays, and most activities of our school, with determination and exuberant spirits. In decorating for the Junior-Senior Prom, their minds were filled with anticipation for a job well done; but most of all with thoughts of next year's Prom, their Prom, where they would be the honored Seniors. "Seniors, are you with us?" challenged the cheerleaders; and immediately 400 senior voices thundered in response with "FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!” The seniors worked hard to make their last year at Harlem the most eventful and worthwhile. They pursued their studies, anticipating scholastic averages required in today's colleges, backed their teams and were deeply involved in school activities. Yet in doing all this, in fact because they did all of this, they provided the example and leadership that is typical of upperclassmen. 7HARLEM HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 122 VERETT L MAGNUS PHILIP E.

Certainly not farewell for from time to time I will see many of you in this building during a college vacation period, or as you attend an athletic contest, or a social event. Many "more of you will establish yourselves in this community as you carry on your life work. Good Luck? Of course, such a wish goes without saying. But, by and large, you will make for yourselves your luck, good or bad. But, certainly, I can congratulate you on what you have achieved. I can say: "You, the Class of 1965, have earned a place high up among the classes that have graduated before you. Among your members are some who have shown unusual ability and will doubtless make a name for themselves." All of you will not achieve equal success; but, watching you in the halls, I have nfot seen one of you graduates who will not develop into a good citizen and who cannot have his share of the good things of life. Many classes have graduated from Harlem and it has been my privilege to observe and to know many of them. Certainly, all the classes have had good qualities, but no two classes are alike. Comparing and remembering the classes preceding you, T will say: "You graduates can be proud of yourselves and of the Class of 1965. Yours has been a job well done. I wish for you the good future you deserve." Harold W. Moore 33 -V UN MOST TALKATIVE Nancys‘ yZF:?r and Mik.Stephen Abernathy JUNIOR CLASS OFFICER? Left to right. Frankie Kraijfowich.

Ivetta June 17, 1946—August 17, 1964 List summer Harlem students and faculty grieved the unexpected death of Alan F. Pena. When the school doors opened in the fall, the junior class sorrowfully felt the loss of one of its most active and enthusiastic members. Alan was an integral part of Harlem. He was active in many aspects of school life; from athletics to student govern- ment. His love of running encouraged his participation in the cross country squad. Alan also served his sophomore class as a member of student council, where he worked with fellow students to improve Harlem. It was through these many organizations and activities, both in school and out, that Alan won his great circle of friends, for he was a cheerful boy who could always be relied upon to do more that his share. He was respected in his church, his community, and his school. The words of one of his classmates best expressed the universal feeling about Alan: "Alan did not ’pick' his friends, but rather everyone was his friend; and he everyone’s." 59Solvcig Sorenson.

To be initiated into these societies is indeed an honor, because of their selectiveness. Other organizations stress a specified area of endeavor—sports, teaching, journalism, singing, etc. Here a student learned new skills, broadened his interests and acquired experience in his chosen vocation. Harlem would not be complete without these organizations, whose membership includes a great percentage of our student body. They add that extra something that makes each year a rich and rewarding experience. 89Student @ M tccC SEATED: Terry Ralston; Frankie Kraipowich; Jan Morgan; Joan Markunas; Nancy Apgar; Treasurer; Paul Blank, President; Rick Huffman, Vice-President; Jim Kasper; Paul Peterson; Tom Clinton.

Harlem's Student G uncil represented the entire student body, forming a democratic group that worked to improve our school for students and faculty. Weekly meetings were held in the cafeteria each Friday after school, and though president Paul Blank had to rap for order more than once, it was at these meetings that member enthusiasm was channeled into the numerous projects of the council. As an active member of the council, Ralph Hotchkiss was the first to receive the honor and responsibility of Homecoming Chairman, setting an excellent example for future chairmen as he co-ordinated the many events that made this year's Homecoming celebration successful. Interested in the social aspects of school, the council hosted an after-game hop at Christmas time. Money and canned food were collected for needy families in the name of the students of Harlem High School. The spring dance, which is always a highlight of the year, had a unique theme and was an enjoyable occasion for all. An outstanding project of the Student Council was the establishment of two one-hundred dollar scholarships for a worthy senior boy and girl. The applicants for these scholarships were any college-bound students. From the applicants for the scholarships, the faculty advisors of Student Council evaluated them and chose the recipients. To remind us of our patriotic heritage, this year's council initiated the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance each morning under the leadership of the Student Council president. Student Gnincil is the organization "of the students, for the students, and by the students"; which strives to improve school spirit, promotes newer and better ideas and activities, and provides friendly cooperation between faculty and students activities.

During the year Thespians presented two one-act plays to the student body, "Masque of the Red Death” and "He Isn’t Dead Yet,” which were well accepted by both the faculty and student body. It is hoped that this will become an annual event. Thespians have quite successfully lived up to their motto—"Act well your part; there all the honor lies.” 91ty.s4.s4 "Thump ... Bull's eye ...

Along with its athletic activities, the G.A.A. also provided a coat check service at each home basketball game. "Are you going to the G.A.A. Formal Dance?" was the great question heard up and down the halls of Harlem High before the Christmas holiday. Ambitious committee members beautifully decorated the gym so that it truly looked like a "Winter Wonderland.” The girls spent long fun-filled hours in preparation for the highlight of the Christmas season. When winter gave way to spring, the G.A.A. members got out their golf clubs, tennis rackets, and baseball bats to warm up for the spring events to round out the year's athletic activities. A mother-daughter banquet was a fitting end for an activity-packed year. The G.A.A. members attended the banquet with a feeling of accomplishment in themselves, and the delighted members stepped forward with pride and enthusiasm to receive awards, earned for their active participation in G.A.A.Left to Right: TOP ROW.

In this modern world, and with our modern way of life, there can be question of the importance of being a well-rounded individual; one who has ample knowledge and can use it, one who can get along well with other people, and one who constantly tries to better himself and gives freely of his time and energy to aid his fellow-man. With the sole purpose of giving recognition to the high school student who is outstanding in these important aspects, the National Honor Society was established in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. This society has grown to such an extent that a chapter of it is found in almost every large high school in the United States. Harlem’s Chapter of the National Honor Society was established by Mrs. Dorothy Wood and Mr. Paul E. Mann in the spring of 1951. Membership in this "honor society” is one of the highest honors that :an be bestowed upon a high school student. Only 5% of the junior class and K)% of the senior class are eligible for membership. Candidates for induction arc carefully considered each year by the members of the high school faculty, and the selection is based on the four fundamental concepts of the National Honor Society; character, leadership, scholarship, and sen-ice. These criteria for membership make it evident that getting superior grades in school does not assure one of membership. Membership must be strived for and is not based on grades alone. Only those students who stand out as leaders in the giving of themselves to the various phases of school life are accorded the honor of membership in National Honor Society. OFFICERS: Steve Evans.

The ability to express ideas or describe events in writing is a talent which few possess, and still fewer exercise. With the noble purpose of encouraging achievement in writing and other phases of high school journalism, Quill and Scroll Society was founded in 1926 by a group of high school publications advisers. Today the society includes more than three thousand chapters in every state and in several foreign countries. The Harlem Chapter, organized in 1955, is under the sponsorship of Mr. Paul E. Mann and Mr. William C. Hyde. The present members, elected as juniors, were inducted into Quill and Scroll last spring during the usual impressive candlelight ceremony. Members elected to the society must be of junior or senior standing, rank in the upper third of their class, contribute outstanding work in high school journalism, be recommended by their advisor, and receive the approval of the executive secretary of the society. The influence of Quill and Scroll serves not only to inspire members of the school publication staffs to greater efforts, but also to engender greater interest in journalism work on the part of the students, the school, and the community.

How much responsibility is involved in the operation of a government? The answers to these and many other questions were discovered by the young adults who attended Illinois Girls' State and Premier Boys' State. Last summer hundreds of ambitious girls and boys spent an action packed week at these citizenship training programs sponsored annually by the American Legion. Girls’ State is held annually at Mac Murray College in Jacksonville, and Boys' State is held at Fairgrounds in Springfield. Here the citizens of tomorrow learned the governmental processes and saw them in action. They elected officials and established city, county and state units of government. Courts were set up, lawyers chosen, and school was attended by the junior citizens as the week progressed. An active program of sports rb bon beat- and recreation provided a stimulating change of routine, and the opportunity to make new friends. To attend Girls' State and Boys' State is an honor and a privilege and 'only those applicants best qualified arc accepted. This one week of citizenship training is definitely a worthwhile experience and an opportunity to become better acquainted with the processes of our government. Ambitious Harlem High School girls interested in a nursing career were provided with a vivid and exciting picture of this profession through participation and study of each aspect of nursing. Highlighting an activity filled year were tours to local hospitals and nursing homes, informative lectures on nursing schools, demonstrations of fundamental nursing procedures, and illustrative movies on first aid. As the year progressed, activities were carefully planned by the sponsor of F.N.A., Mrs. Mar)’ Miller. Monthly programs were scheduled to maintain a high interest in the program and keep each meeting new and different. Elected officers of the club were Pat Jackson, President; Betty Ris, Vice-president; and Sandy Jcp-son, Secretary.

Still for the choir, it was a memorable afternoon—for the audience, an nspiring occasion. Everyone returned from Christmas vacation rested and ready—ready to work, that is! It was at this time of the year that ever)- choir member was quite sure that their loving and capable director, "Ma" Peterson, had simply too much confidence in them. l;or from January to early April they tackled the (almost) impossibility of preparing for three things at once; State Ensemble Contest, the Operetta, and State Music (Choir) Contest. However, after long, hard work under Mrs. Peterson's direction, the choir executed an expert job. The arrival of May brought the Choir Banquet; the arrival of the Choir Banquet indicated the end of the year and Baccalaureate. At this, the last performance, senior members came from their respective chairs to take their place for the last time with the 1964-65 A Cappella Choir.I'teMe iee (P£u£ An old club with a new name describes the 1 reblc Clef Glee Club, formerly known as Girls’ Chorus.

The performances of the group included the Christmas Concert, which was a thrill, and the Veterans Day Program Assembly.

Time was spent on things other than Readin’, Rilin’, and Rithmetic. The first of the three highlights of the year was the Christmas project, which put each girl to work making or buying gifts for other children. Next came the annual visit to a teacher's college where the girls could preview what their future college years held for them. A Teacher's Tea, held in behalf of the elementary teachers who participated in the student teaching program, provided a suitable close for the F.T.A. year. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: Secretary.

Through this persistent question asked by many inquiring students, Harlem’s newest club came into existence. Forensic League, the clubs respected name, was formed in the fall of this year to sponsor all speech activities. Its main purpose is to help further interest in speech activities and to cultivate speech skills. Sponsoring the IHSA functions and Harlem’s Debate Tournament were also part of the club's program. All students interested in practicing speeches in front of audiences met every Friday after school. Many nervous students presented their first debates to their fellow Forensic Leaguers. Besides giving these people valuable practice in giving speeches, the orations were also perfected by critical comments from the observers. The officers along with Mr. Arnold, their advisor, worked hard on planning programs for each week. Debates, oration, extempore speaking, and play and poetry recitation were included in these programs. Forensic League's two big projects of the year were the sponsoring of the Harlem Debate Tournament and the Illinois Speech Contest. The debate tournament was a ''first'' for Harlem. It was held on December 19, with debaters from thirteen schools from the Northern Illinois area. The club plans to make this debate tournament an annual occurrence. The Forensic League’s first year prosed to be most successful and they arc looking forward to a bigger and better club next year. iHola! j Coiik) csti usted? My name is Juan. I moved here to Harlem from Mexico. Naturally being interested in Spanish, I decided to join Spanish Club. A scurrying, scrambling scavenger hunt introduced me to a fun-filled year. "Fray Felipe" and "Sc Levanta" were sung as gaily as my fellow Mexicans would sing them. The Christmas spirit ignited us to a lively Christmas party. Pinatas, Spanish Christmas songs, and refreshments (Um! Those cookies!!) helped to make the December meeting an enjoyable and fattening one. A highlight of our year was an enlightening dissertation by an Argentina Senora, Olga Fiben. The strange customs of Argentina fascinated the espanolcs. I was proud and thrilled to be a member of Harlem's Spanish Club. Interesting meetings were always carefully planned by our capable officers. Thanks to the help of Miss Staley', Mrs. Bronn, and Miss Williams, this year’s Spanish Club was successful and exciting. iAdios!

Under the capable leadership of the experienced officers, assisted by Miss Griggs and Mrs. Heggy, the inexperienced Kippers eagerly looked forward to practicing for the highlight of the year—a successful swim show. Arranging for attractive scenery, sewing striking costumes, and working on effective lighting kept the Kippers busy when not in the pool. Unsubmerged ballet legs, round dolphins, and many difficult stunts were finally perfected by all the exhausted members. Along with seemingly "everlasting" hours of practicing and red bloodshot eyes, came fun and enjoyment. Projection (?( "Splice this tape, please; Get me this film, please; Show this movie, please,” these arc just few of the tedious tasks that the members of the Projection Club fulfilled so diligently throughout the span of the school year. Though the audio-visual club started out the year ill-equipped, it expanded to its true potential by receiving new screens, projectors, and other much needed equipment. Here, again, without the helpful suggestions of the watchful members, these additions would not have been a reality. Activities for the year included sponsoring an after-game dance and as a small reward for valuable efforts, a trip to Chicago to visit Cinerama. The student body truly enjoyed the deviation from every day class routine, through the use of audio and visual aids, made possible by the working members of the Projection Club. 103 LEFT TO RIGHT: Larry Gray, President; Karen Brandt.

No, it introduced the Sophomores to the school paper as well as being a sales pitch for THE PEPPER. A highlighted event for the staff was attendance at the Journalism Seminar, hosted by the ROCKFORD MORNING STAR AND REGISTER-REPUBLIC. Many helpful tips along with critical analysis inspired the Harlem staff to publish a better-than-ever PEPPER. "Reporters, get your articles written!" "Don't forget to get the editor's OK!” "Why aren't those articles typwritten yet?” Month after month these phrases were yelled at the staff by the editors. During the monthly PEPPER layout, which took place on Monday evenings, the reporters’, typists', and editors' work was combined. The numerous articles, pictures, drawings, and advertisements were carefully pieced together to form THE PEPPER. Such articles as "Homecoming”, "Prom”, and "The Senior Class Will” filled the monthly issues with fascinating features. To promote school spirit, THE PEPPER instigated a cheering competition among the classes. A "Pep Jug” was the coveted reward for the class which yelled the loudest. With the capable guidance of Mr. William Hyde, Harlem's PEPPER again flourished and was enjoyed by the entire student body. EDITOR: Bob Hinshaw ARTISTS: PHOTOGRAPHERS: B. Campbell. S. Burdick. S.

Each year Harlem's Future Homemaker's Association selects a project toward which the year's activities are directed. To co-ordinate this year's project with the idea of promoting international pood will, the girls contributed most of their time to collecting items for the needy. Some of the activities enjoyed by this year's members were: a "Needy Drive" during the Yuletidc season and meetings devoted to handi-craft items for under-privileged children. Mrs. Welsh, the advisor, also arranged for the girls to attend a tantalizing foreign foods demonstration at the Gas and Electric Building. The girls, led by their officers. Cheryl Harwood— President. Linda Lusk—Treasurer. Lynn Swanson. Social Chairman, and Loretta Bossclman—Secretary', took an enjoyable tour of the charming Tinker's Cottage and returned to Harlem to nibble tasty Swiss food.

The "Husky Marching Hundred” enthusiastically plunged into its 1964-65 season under the baton of the new director, Mr. Harold Luhman. The first weeks of practice were spent perfecting intricate marching routines for presentation at the five home football games. Led by veteran drum majors Jay Johnson and Dave Benck, the Marching Band and Twirlcrs again thrilled football fans during the halftimes and saluted each Harlem touchdown with a spirited rendition of the school fight song. Featured in the timely theme of the show preceding election day was the "world's largest flag.” Supported by fifty Boy Scouts of America, the flag was carried down the field, until it was discovered that it represented only forty-eight states.

Many additional activities added to a wonderful autumn of fun, among which were the trip to Northwestern University to the Tenth Annual Band Day; and. naturally, the sophomore "welcoming” part)', held on Mr. Luhman's farm near Belvidcrc. Highlighted by hayrides and a hayloft game called "sardines", the sophomores soon felt like real i.. mbers of the band. With the football season behind them and Christmas on the horizon, the band moved indoors and immediately commenced work on the December Christmas Concert, presented jointly with the Harlem choral department. The arrival of spring brought long hours of rehearsal in preparation for contest in March and April, as well as two spring concerts at the high school. The band's final performance was a tribute played by the junior and sophomore members to the 1965 graduates. Band members nostalgically remembered the past year’s fun and hard work.t965 TKetvn State Shortly after Harlem's doors opened last September, a crew- of seniors and juniors began to assemble faithfully every day in Mr. Mann's room to commence work on this year's edition of the Meteor. Staff members had the responsibility of choosing a format, theme, and cover for the new collcgiatc-sizc annual; therefore, making the first few meetings important ones. On Tuesday nights the entire crew met to finish up the week's work and hash over new ideas, while ever)’ seventh hour a handful of students congregated to labor on behalf of the Meteor. After a two-week trial period, Mr. Mann was in a position to choose his right-hand "men”, the editors. As overseer (Editor-in-Chief) he singled out "Bill Throncburg,” known to most of us as Bill Thurmond. Designated as co-editors to work with him were Terr)' Shallcross, Sandy Townsend, and Al Markunas. Under the. enthusiastic command of these leaders, the real work of putting out this Meteor was quickly tackled. It appeared at times as though our editors had bitten off more work for us than we could chew; but as each deadline arrived, each person dug in with more vigor until the quota of material was finished and shipped off to the publisher. The sound of Stan Turney yelling at the ad staff with the familiar, "All right, how many ads did you sell over the week-end?” and the heart-wrenching sight of Al berating innocent junior girls were common occurrences at the Meteor conclaves.

The 1964-65 athletic season opened as the pert cheerleaders led the spirited student body at the first pep assembly of the year. Remember your first impression of the shocking orange slacks the cheerleaders were wearing?..............the blaring sound of the band in its entirety .and the presence of an enthusiastic spirit of desire to win. All of these and many more made up a year of wonderful excitement for the student body and cheerleaders as the football season slid by and the basketball season appeared on the scene. Basketball season opened with the new idea of the pep jug . . . new coaches ... the new Huskie mascot . . . new cheers, chants, and yells, one of which was "Hello Huskies.” All of these new things plus the helpful guidance of Mrs. Lundgrcn during many hours of learning, practicing, and perfecting cheers helped the cheerleaders to better fulfill their duty to the team and the school throughout the year. It was clearly evident that this honor, enthusiasm and poise. 112 MRS. LUNDGRENVICKI SHERRY02{ zt c cUct 114Homecoming is upcoming . . . Let's back our team . . .

Announcements like these posted on the various bulletin boards of Harlem High continually showed the energy and enthusiasm of the students who study, work, and "play” here. Activities arc an important segment of the life of the high school student. They arc a deviation from everyday school routine; they provide a chance for relaxation and enjoyment; and they are a vital part of every student’s life. Just as the student must develop study habits and increase his knowledge, he must also learn to co-operate with his fellow students. From the very first Sophomore Welcoming Dance to the final, greatest activity of all. Commencement, the student broadens and strengthens his personal horizons through activities. Each new experience becomes a part of him, and contributes towards his becoming a well-rounded individual. 1157964 It certainly was THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!!" The weatherman threatened to be unco operative; the night was unfavorably cold and misty. The decorations drooped, fingers grew numb, and scotch tape wouldn’t stick ... but who cared? This was Homecoming; the celebration was on, the spirit was high, the students and alumni could not be held back. The appropriately decorated parade honked, sang, cheered, and waved from one end of Loves Park to the other. Returning to the school gridiron, the spirited mob thronged to the football stadium for a noisy pep rally. The band blared, the cheerleaders fired up the students by song and cheers, the parade winners were announced, and Coach Young presented the Homecoming co-captains—John Peak and Gary Terrell. The outside activities were climaxed as the impregnable seniors slid and strained their way to victory in the popular tug-of-war. Inside, the present and former students of Harlem expended more energy as they "swam”, "jerked", and "bopped” to the latest smash hits. The referee's whistle signaled that the events of Friday were under way. Our scrappy "pups” handed the record crowd of fans an impressive 20-6 victor)' over Boy Ian . . . but the best was yet to come. The mighty varsity, ignited by the enthusiasm of the fans, exploded! The)1 out-dashed, out-passed, out-kicked, and just simply out-played their opponents. When the frolic was over, the score was Harlem 32, Boy Ian 0. Between games came the Queen’s coronation. Sleek and sparkling convertibles, each carrying a lovely member of the court and her escort, lined up at the west end of the field as the varsity teams warmed up for the game. The Senior Class float led the procession followed by the cream of the Senior Class; Elaine Blomgren, Terr)- Shallcross, and Sandy Townsend. Next came the Junior Class float and the choices of the Juniors; Sherry Savalla and Vicky Sundly. Finally came the Sophomore Class float followed by the Sophomore representative, Sandy Burdick. The excitement and suspense reached an unbelievable pitch. Then, amid cheers of encouragement, the crown, along with the traditional salute and bouquet of white mums, was presented by the co-captains to a weeping, but beautiful, Elaine. On Saturday evening alumni, faculty, and students waltzed to the soft, dreamy music of Norris Romeo. As the dance came to an end, the happy, exciting times turned into fond memories. Much praise and thanks flowed upon Homecoming Chairman Ralph Hotchkiss, the Student Council, H-Club, and all those responsible for having made Homecoming 1964 a memory-filled, never-to-be-forgotten event! L. to R. Sandy Burdick, Mary Gilbert. Linda Jeans. Steve Tomaschefsky. Greg Sandberg. Pam Moeller, Mrs. Muntz. At a special all school assembly, winners of the District Speech Contest were presented their tangible awards. The contestants gratefully accepted their hardearned medals. As the entire student body applauded, the faces of Harlem’s 1965 contestants seemed to glow an earnest "Thank you”. The highlight of the assembly was the presentation of the 1965 District Individual Events Tournament First Place Plaque to Principal Harold Moore by the proud and excited members of the Harlem Forensic League. The District Speech Contest was held at West Senior High School with seventeen area schools participating including five of the Big Eight schools. It's no wonder spirits were high with excitement that Saturday as Harlem slipped by the experienced Freeport entries by a scant three points. The contest began about the middle of December with keen competition in the "event try-outs” at Harlem. Months of hard work and anticipation went into each contestant's selection before the District Contest. Practice of long hours after school and partial nervous breakdowns often occurred as tension increased. The closer the final day came, the harder contestants worked and the later the night lights burned. Anxiety increased as both Freeport and Harlem were tied for first place with only two scores to be posted. A mistake in posting put Freeport on top. The jeers of Freeport didn't aid the disappointed Harlemites. Then as the mistake was corrected, all of the Harlem contestants yelled, screamed, and jumped up and down, congratulating each other. Down trodden Freeport went home tied with West for second place. First place is worth five points; second place, four; third place, three; etc. Can you imagine the feeling of superiority as all Harlem entrants placed and points accumulated for Harlem?

Mike Martin 1207t t4u4fiectecC SENIOR PLAY The lights began to dim, the curtains drew back, the sound of an active typewriter drifted in, and there stood Luther Grandison. This year's Senior Class Play "The Unsuspected” was presented under the zealous direction of Mr. David Arnold assisted by Mr. Kenneth Thompson. The play centered around a murder passed off as suicide. The way the victim’s fiance went about proving his theory concerning the true cause of death and the reason that her death was necessary provided a wintry evening’s entertainment for those who braved the elements to attend. It would be agreed by audience, crew and cast that it was one of Harlem’s best dramatic productions. 121 The strains of familiar Christmas carols drifted through the gaily decorated auditorium as families gathered for the Twelfth Annual Tradition Family Christmas Concert. Among the selections played by the Harlem concert band were "A Christmas Festival,” "Sleigh Ride,” and "The Nutcracker Suite,” which was brought to life by Linda Fowler’s interpretative dancing. The choir possessed an air of serenity during the solemn candlelight proc -ssion while the Madrigals set a spiritual mood with "Silent Night". A festive spirit was created by cheerful songs sung by the A Cappella and Treble Clef Choirs. The portrayal of Christ’s birth by the A CappcIIa’s Tableau pictured the beautiful and true meaning of Christmas, while the choir’s moving ballad of "The Drummer Boy" left many with misty eyes. Harlem's band and choral rendition of the spirited "Hallelujah Chorus” climaxed the spiritual mood. 122Children nestled around Mr. William Hyde as he enchanted everyone with the narration of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Realistic sound effects played by the band added to the jovial scene; and, of course, Santa Claus and his shapely "reindeer”, tossing candy to the audience, were the highlight of the concert. Once again Harlem’s band and choral groups had presented a memorable concert with a variety of lovely Christmas music. The true holiday spirit and a realization of the beauty of Christmas remained in the hearts of all as the crowd left the auditorium and dispersed into the frosty air. In r V. y 123'ZVtttten, 0?Vo tcC iC z KC The stars were dear and bright, the wind calm. A new freshness was brought about by the softly falling snowflakes; an air of excitement lingered; a truly appropriate blend of nature on the eve of the G.A.A. formal, "Winter Wonderland." Once inside, the atmosphere of wintry' enchantment still prevailed throughout the gymnasium which had been superbly decorated. The Jack Sweeny Orchestra provided the soft, flowing strains as star-gazed couples waltzed dreamily around the majestic Christmas tree. Anticipation mounted as the time for the coronation grew near. After the curtain unveiled an old-fashioned sleigh against a star-filled background, Harlem’s own Christmas "Gifts” were introduced. The climactic moment of the ceremony came amid excitement and applause with the coronation of Dave Ancona and Nancy Apgar by last year’s king and queen, Lynn Oswald and Sue Kasper. The slight comic flare after the coronation did not destroy any of the dignity of the ceremony; but instead, added to that wonderful something that will make us long cherish the memories of the night.Athletics has been an integral part of every student's career at Harlem, whether they actually participated "on the field” or cheered their team from the sidelines. For some, the active participation in a sport has been a valuable experience. Long, grueling hours of practice depleted the strength and seemingly inhuman coaches tried the patience as these athletes developed in endurance, co-ordination, and character. They tasted the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat as they valiantly strove to "keep the Huskies on top” by being the best of winners... or losers. But this was neither the most important nor the only aspect of athletics. The job of supplying enthusiastic support for our teams fell into the hands of the majority of the students. For them, the opportunity to attend games and cheer for the Huskies was a chance for a few hours of fun and relaxation. But whether the student actually participated "on the field" or stood "on the sidelines” and cheered, he learned and developed in the concepts of sportsmanship, leadership, and loyalty—traits in which we feel that "The Huskies are the best.” o ot -Mju Qi d.cyytJL Uj-AclJ- -Clm cy '-Ox CyCcLx CLn i-J) 127FIRST ROW: D.

Opening drills attracted some sixty-three aspiring (and soon perspiring) gridders. As Harlem’s first encounter drew near, the high spirited Huskies primal their offense and readied their defense for all on-comers. Harlem's opening contest witnessed a last minute touchdown by the Cavaliers of La Salle-Peru to send the Huskies down to a heartbreaking 20-14 defeat. The Huskies rolled up a three game winning streak as they stunned the hapless Harvard Hornets 20-0. An inspired Huskic squad led by the Stout defensive unit, limited the Harvard offense to less than 100 yards, ground gain. A week later in their initial Big Eight contest, the Huskies outclassed the Vikings of Guilford by a 17-7 score as fullback Jim Murphy scored a pair of touchdowns and Randy Jones added a pair of extra points and a thirteen yard field goal. The second conference game provided a joyful Homecoming for Harlem alumni as the Huskies whitewashed the Boy I an Titans 32-0. Tim Berg paced the Harlem defense by intercepting a Boylan aerial and jaunting seventy-three yards for a touchdown. The fifth outing of the season saw the Huskies traveling to Freeport to challenge the perennially powerful Pretzels. Following a hard fought first half, the highly-touted Pretzels pulled away from the hard-hitting Huskies to a 33-6 victor)'. In Harlem’s fourth Big Eight contest of the year, East High edged the Huskies 6-0. The E-Rab defense proved to be infallible as the)' stalled the Harlem offense both on the ground and in the air. For the second straight week, the Harlem offense bogged down and West’s Big Eight champion Warriors rolled over us to a 33-0 victory. Our fighting gridders displayed their finest offensive attack of the season in the last home game of the ’64 campaign. Juniors Steve Bainter and L. T. Graham sparked the offensive by scoring three touchdowns apiece. Harlem won the high-scoring game by a 47-33 margin. In the final game at Beyer Stadium, Auburn warded off a strong Harlem challenge to outlast the Huskies, 26-14. The Huskies showed undaunted spirit and tireless effort in the '64 campaign as the)' finished the season with a 3-4 conference record, capturing respectable fourth place in Big Eight Conference.r RICHARDJACK STEVE DAN GARY JOHN All-Confcrcncc MIKE a RANDYFIRST ROW'.

The pups’ formidable attack far outclassed that of the other Big Fight sophomore teams, and Harlem won five of their eight games, tying one, and losing to only Guilford and Freeport. Coaches Phillips and Sundstedt did a fine job with the sophomores this year, as they moulded linemen and backs from three separate Junior Highs into a smooth functioning, hard hitting team. The highlight of the pups’ season was the game against Harlem’s traditional rival. Harvard, in which the sophomores cheated the Hornets out of any score and defeated them 20 to 0. Another unforgettable game was against Belvidcrc. The fighting Bucs held our pups scoreless for three quarters, and gained 19 points for themselves. In the fourth, however, the sophs battled their way to a 19-19 tic. Next year’s Varsity and J.V. teams can expect experienced players.

This was the familiar sound that greeted Harlem’s spirited cross country runners as they streaked over the finish line at the end of each grueling two-mile marathon. Under the capable direction of Coach Delbert Nicklaus, the varsity harriers completed a challenging schedule of 18 meets over a 7-wcek period. Toward the end of the season, Harlem took sixth place in the City Meet and captured 7th place in the Big Eight Conference. In the Big 8 sophomore competition, Dennis McKinney took individual honors with a time of 10:39. In dual meets, Harlem won two of eight as the)- outran Beloit at Rock Cut and Belvidcre on the Bucs’ home course. The Belvidcre encounter featured a 1-2 finish by Harlem’s Bob Hinshaw and Dennis McKinney, with times of 10:01 and 10:09 respectively, but it was a team effort that was responsible for the victory. Prior to most varsity dual contests, a group of Harlem’s 8th through 14th fastest runners competed in a junior varsity meet and compiled a season record of 4 wins and 2 losses. In the season finale. Bob Hinshaw, who later was elected Most-Valuablc-Playcr by his team-mates, paced the harriers to a 13th place finish in the District Meet at Crystal Lake. Varsity runners who won major letters in cross country this season included: Bob Hinshaw, Dennis McKinney, Karl Johnson. Dick Hockison. Donald Vaughan, Brad Drake, David McEleney, and Rich Greene. Three others who also ran on the varsity at times were Jay Peterson, George Bachr, and Terry Maddrell. 133Wind him up. Coach!

The greenness of the Husky team was evident in Harlem’s opening contest as a powerful Beloit five topped the Huskies, 82-67. As the season progressed, however, the Harlem quintet gained valuable experience, which led to the near-upset of many top-rated Big Eight Conference teams. Proving that the)- were a team to be reckoned with, the Huskies dumped the Mount Morris Moundcrs, 64-53, for their first victory of the season. Two surprisingly close contests followed in which the Warriors topped the host Huskies, 48-46, and the powerful Knights toppled the Huskies, 66-49. After steam-rolling over a favored Belvidere team, the Huskies garnered three more wins in succession . . . Guilford, Oregon, and Boylan. Before stopping a tough non-conference foe, Rochelle, 56-50, the Huskies played host to the Freeport Pretzels in one of the finest games of the season. Trailing by ten at the half, the ncvcr-say-dic Huskies rallied to cut the Freeport advantage to a mere three points with one minute remaining. Only tremendous slow-down tactics by league-leading Freeport gave the once-beaten Pretzels their 66-59 victor)'. This year's Harlem varsity team, though certainly not tops in the state, gave the Harlem fans many thrilling moments and promised more action in the future. Many of the proficient performers were underclassmen who will form the nucleus of Harlem teams in coming seasons. 136Se tio Steinsvarsity scores HEAD COACH DEI.

Standing 5'11” tall, Tim Berg could well be called the biggest little man in the conference. His consistency in shooting and on the boards contributed enormously to the over all capabilities of the team. Uncanny ball handling and numerous assists marked Tim's rapid ascent to a starting berth. Sharing the spotlight with Tim at forward was Steve Evans. The 6'3” senior led the team in scoring for a time and was one of the Huskies' top rcbounders. The state of Texas made its contribution to the team in the form of a 6' jumping jack—Keith King. Keith, a tremendous defensive player, seemed to delight in making opposing players ' eat” the ball. Harlem's two mighty midgets, Stan Turney and Don Trcsemer, formed the backcourt of the squad. Don, the Huskies' 5'6" "little general" was honored twice in a row as "Prep of the Week” by a downtown newspaper for his outstanding accomplishments. Don shone brilliantly as playmaker and second leading scorer, and he also served as team captain. Stan was usually brought into the ball game when an opponent started scoring too many baskets—his quick hands and cagey defense often stopped the defense cold. Another pair of small guards, 5'7" Dave (Pizza) Ancona and 5'8” Gary Samp, also showed tremendous ability when called upon. Gary's aggressive defense and Dave's long arching jump shot will long be remembered as their identifying characteristics on the basketball floor. A boy who hadn't played on the basketball team for two years, L. T. Graham, came back in his final year of eligibility to fill a creditable role. As a regular starter on the JV squad, he pumped in 15-foot jump shots with amazing regularity. Though it was a dr)- year as victories go, the eight boys who played their final games will always remember that the)- played with the truefJ. 1V. S i 6et zCC The junior varsity basketball team, composed of underclassmen who were being groomed for positions of responsibility on future varsity squads, showed great promise of things to come when it compiled a record of six wins against five losses. Under the direction of Coach Roger Ostrom, the juniors posted double victories over both Bel-videre and Boylan, and lone wins at the expense of Auburn and West. Losses were suffered at the hands of East, Freeport, Janesville, and Gui!ford( twice). Individuals who led the JV's in scoring at various times during the season were Randy Nybcrg, Terr)1 Maddrell, Steve Homewood, Rich Greene, and L. T. Graham. Armed with valuable game experience, these boys will be vying for starting positions on next year's varsity team.HACK ROW L-R: A Dahlmcicr, H. Danger, G. Jones. R Foss. J. Cook. C. Kluth, D. Somers.

Capturing victories over all but two of their Big Eight rivals, the spirited sophomore team provided numerous thrilling moments for their devoted fans. Not one, but three, overtime periods highlighted the first East game before the Pups tasted a bitter and close defeat. A frccthrow by Gar)- Peak at the end of the first overtime was in vain as the East Rablcts went on to down the Pups by a 68-65 margin. When Harlem met Freeport on our home court, a last-second basket by AI Dahlmeier amid the deafening roar of an exuberant crowd sank the high-flying "Pretzelettes" by a single point. A former Little All-American, Mr. Jerald Mell, coached the spirited Pups and much of their success could be attributed to his noticeable influence, experience and general knowledge of the game. After the end of the regular season, which came late in February, all of the team's energy was devoted to preparation for the sophomore tournament in Bclvidere, which annually brings together the best of the sophomore teams in the area. This year's Harlem team gave a glimpse of the future varsity basketball team which will be comprised of these fine young athletes. As the final horn signaled the end of the 1964-65 basketball season, the sophomores and their coach could reflect with pride and satisfaction upon their achievements both in practice and on the court. 140HARLEM 46 OPPONENT lk-Joit Guilford Harvard Boylan Freeport East West Auburn Bcfvidere Guilford Oregon Boylan Freeport Rochelle East West Auburn BelvidcrcTOP ROW: G.

After two long dr)- years, Harlem's varsity team got on the winning side of the ledger this season. The grapplers proved that "experience pays" as the)- scrapped for Harlem's first victory in history, a 31-21 decision over Hononegah. By the end of the year, the Huskies had beaten three of their ten opponents in dual matches. In the Big Eight Conference Meet, Bill Krumwiede became Harlem's first conference champion by taking individual honors in the 103 pound class. Doug Spencer finished second in the 165 pound class after a stunning upset of a top-ranking East High wrestler. Harlem made the best showing among local schools in the Boylan ITosh-Soph Tournament by capturing third place. In this tourney, the Huskies had two individual winners, Henry Bridges at heavyweight, and Terry Johnson in the 138 pound class. Harlem's third wrestling season came to a close with the district meet held at Guilford High School. Paced by third place finishers, Bill Krumwiede, Steve Kenny, Doug Spencer, and Frank Bridges, the wrestlers captured fifth place in the eight-team district. Sophomore Henry-Bridges, the only other Harlem grappler to place, finished fourth at heavyweight. At the completion of the season, Doug Spencer and Bill Krumwiede were elected co-captains by their teammates. Spencer posted a final mark of 17-6, while Krumweide led the Harlem team with a record of 20-3- In eight of the twelve weight classes, Harlem will have varsity wrestlers returning to brighten the prospects of championships in 1965-66. Harlem, coached by Mr. Charles Fletcher and Mr. John Phillips, has firmly established itself as one of the wrestling powers of the area.TOP ROW: H. Burleson. Mgr.. T. Johnson, D. Lower, D.

In our free enterprise system and competitive atmosphere, the responsibility of the merchants to make their goods and services available to the public at reasonable prices, and to conduct their businesses fairly, is great. The good businessman is the one who accomplishes this task and does it with such a friendly and warm attitude that it is a pleasure to patronize him. He is the businessman who goes beyond the basic business transaction and becomes our friend and earns our respect. Such are the businessmen of our community; those we offer our hand in appreciation for their considerations. 161"Nothing but camping equipment" 4825 North Second Street Huskies Strike at REITSCH'S 3007 North Main—Rockford, Illinois DUSING'S D-X SERVICE Dean, Doug, Sib "The Sign of Friendly, Personalized Service" Washing, Greasing Firestone Tires, Batteries and Accessories Congratulations FromMCOFFEE PARK STATE BANK Member Federal Insurance Corporation 5817 North Second St. DIAL 877-5751Compliments of HOUSE OF BOTTLES 5619 North Second Street "Loves Park's Pioneer Grocer" PARKSIDE FOOD MART "Your Modern Self-Service Mart" North Second Street at Grand Avenue Open 8:30 A.M. to 11 P.M., 7 days a week Compliments of TOP HAT TOWN AND COUNTRY DINING ROOM 5335 North Second Street Loves Parle, Illinois i Compliments of COURTEOUS AUTO SALES 5305 North Second Street — .Compliments of A.

'TAYLOR PUBLISHING COMPANY The World Beil Yearbook Are Taylor-made 'THE PRINCE OF PILSEN 7 e 'P'tcKce “Pel eK CAST A trip to Paris for a gala FESTIVAL of Perfumes was the setting for characters and playgoers alike as the A Cappclla Choir presented its annual operetta, "The Prince of Pilsen.” The enticing French Riviera scenery put everyone in a mood to visit the Festival themselves. The myriad of colorful guests at the Hotel Internationale included a group of American college girls, (under the supervision of the "fussy" Miss Crocker) a handsome English photographer. Artie Wintcrset; and a group of Heidelberg students including the Prince of Pilsen. A comedy of mistaken identity ensued when Jake Boomer, a gullible Texas oil and cattle millionaire, and his beautiful sister Jean arrived. To their amazement the)- were welcomed as the Prince and Princess of Pilsen and Wilbert and Dilbcrt, a pair of confidence men, lost no time in selling the exalted identity of "prince” to Jake. Confusion mounted as the real prince-arrived and became known as Herr Schmidt, only to have fun with the pretender to his title. As the plot thickened, Francois, head-waiter at the Hotel Internationale, and Miss Crocker's Maid, Sidonie, plotted to steal the formula for the winning entry in the perfumes festival. A French band, soloist, costume group dancers, and French can-can dancers brought the Festival of Perfumes to a thrilling climax!

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going,” and this is what our cindcrmcn did this year. With limited potential hut unbounded enthusiasm, Harlem culminated the track season with 7th place out of 42 schools entered in the District Meet. Track is considered to be the sport that requires more individual intestinal fortitude and drive than any other sport. Weeks and weeks of physical strain go into each meet, tagged along with a tremendous amount of positive thinking. In track, as in all sports, it's mental power over material things, or in other words, it's "Mind over matter." The squad, after being a little lax, did exceptionally well at setting new district and school records. Gliding over the bar, Gary Samp showed outstanding skill in the pole vault at the District Meet, along with speedster Ed Foreman, who churned up the track at Beyer Stadium to set another new District Meet record. Both of these eminent cindcrmcn went to the Illinois State Track finals at Urbana. Tom Luepkes broke his old school record for the pole vault and Bob Hinshaw set a new record for the 2-mile run during the regular season.

However, as the spring progressed, and the season drew near, Coach John Sunstcdt looked forward to a very promising year as three returning lettermen composed a strong nucleus for the 1965 squad. Senior Craig Smith led the way with Steve Evans and Rick McGuire, playing supporting roles. Rounding out the varsity squad were juniors Mike Broach and Bruce Campbell and sophomore Bob Niffcnegger. Once into the season, the Harlem linksmen faced many stiff tests as Big Eight competition proved to be more than an adequate challenge. The golfers finished dual meet competition with a 3-4 mark and placed eighth in the District Meet and sixth in the conference meet held at Belvidere. The JV squad was led by senior Dave Anderson, and sophomores Paul Peterson and Bob Bergman, and compiled a respectable record. Coach John Sunstcdt can look forward to a promising season next year with an experienced veteran squad."Afa she's Miking ' »t me- Talent at its best Ho • t 's a ( ., “Throw it— I dare you!" (Every saa "66 " Ask Any Girl and they will tell you that the Junior Class Play was one of the best comedies ever presented at Harlem. The story revolved around a vivacious, small town girl of twenty, Meg Wheeler, who defiantly moved to New York City to gain independence and to capture a husband. Her parents and two doting aunts, insisted, that for her own good, she live at the Madison Avenue Girls Hotel. The hotel, occupied six husband-seeking girls unanimously agreeing that it was impossible to hook a man in New York and when informed of the situation, Meg becomes determined to prove them wrong. After some unusual scheming to get Evans Daughton, an advertising company executive, to propose to her, she suddenly realized that she really loved his brother Miles. The final curtain descended to find Meg and Miles together while Evans stood aside, puzzled over the change of circumstances. Mr. Dennis Biiycu, director, and the members of the cast and crew arc to be commended for this truly fine production. Meg Wheeler Mrs. Wheeler Mr. Wheeler . Aunt Fern..... Aunt Let tie .

Forming beautiful patterns and performing many difficult stunts, the girls portrayed different scenes of the fairy tale. To create the mood the pool area was decorated with a huge Emerald City, the castle of the Wicked Witch of the West, plus a meadow of beautiful but deadly poppies. Miss Griggs’ and Mrs. Heggy’s capable direction of the swimming and Mr. Thompson’s skillful supervision of makeup, scenery, and narrations, easily transformed the girls into realistic characters of the talc. Other than a little technical difficulty the first night, the show was a tremendous success. The fine performance is a tribute to the school, and the Kippers have many promising years ahead. _TtatcOKOC s444e tt6lct Guest speaker, sponsors and present officers The traditional National Honor Society induction ceremony impressed proud parents, faculty members, students, and inductees.
