Meet N.H.S! Here are its... sagacious seniors, aspiring juniors, flippant sophomores, green freshmen, and lowly 7th and 8th graders. Here are the patient faculty and office staff, its clubs, from G.L. to the National Honor Society, its musical organizations... band, orchestra, and choir. Glimpse its parties, its athletics: football, basketball, track, its coaches, and teams. Meet N.H.S. in... .ff Iwi' . Hqru. 'mg af' "- f .

George VI administration Ralph E. Beebe Superintendent of Schools "The 19146 Arrowheadn filled a long-felt need and drew favorable co ments from all its readers. This second edition will add to the values of school record and history. The staff and all who have contributed are to be com- mended highly for their success- ful work. Robert Van Adestine Principal of High School To the alumni of Naperville High School the 'Arrowhead' is another evidence of change as it affects our school. To the stu- dents it represents a large order in the major job of gathering a su mary of school activities thru the year. Since an undertaking of this kind represents many hours of hard work, the sponsors and the staff hope yon may enjoy its pages in that same proportion. IEIA L.

Shakespeare HIISTCRY Class of U47 Green freshmen? Not us! The class of 'I47 has never been bashfulgin factgwe enter- ed N.H.S. in the fall of 19113 with a blare of trumpets announcing our very important arrival. We elected our class officers: Joe Dichtl, presidentg Don Dagenais, vice president 3 Norma Heather, secretary-trea- surerg and under their leadership we turn- ed the gym into a big top for "Carnival," the first of the series of successful par- ties we sponsored during our high school career. We proved our importance in oth- er school activities by such things as sending representatives to the constitu- tional committee for the newly-formed stu- dent council, and by participating in aJ.1 the major sports. Our social skill was further proved by our second party, for which there were no decorations Cto con- serve paper for the war effortl, but that didn't detract from the fun. Before we knew it we had entered our sophomore year with our good friend, Miss Scroggie, as our English teacher for the second time. After the candidates had com- pleted their campaigns ,and their followers had stuffed the ballot boxes ,we were happy to receive the good news that Chuck Russell was chief executive, Bill Kupke was vice- president, and Bev Zaininger was our stat- istician-matlmmtkxian. These officers were a. great help in guiding us through our sec- ond year in the 'house of blue lights!" Our first party that year surely was a laugh for it was the "Smiles" party. Here was a masterpiece of ingenuity! The walls of the gym were covered with cartoons ,car- toons ,millions of cartoons ,and all through the evening the halls of N.H.S. "rang with the laughter of merry children!" As time and records will show,the main interest of the class of 'I47 has always been :Ln having a salubrious time. Another cause for de- light that year was our boys' winning the Frosh-Soph basketball title. Upperclassmen at last! This year found us in a. new activity that was being insti- tuted here at N.H.S.x the homeccmingg and we pitched right in to make it a worth- while affair!! With the Prom as our goal, we all sold tickets industriously for our class play and set a new junior play rec- Ordo R fm ii ef A 5 5: wg ' kai? ,z,,. m 1 ' h P W ,, R 5 x wx SENIOR YEAR in Retrospect Sept. 3...seniors at last... we greeted friends we hadn't seen all summer..."Did I tell you where I went for MY vaca- tion?"

Our faces glowing with pride and gaunt with sleep- lessness, we submitted our first term papers to Mr. McCabe. With the big ,job of ordering class rings out of the way, we focused fnote, Mr. Hollandj our attention on the class play. "The Fighting Littles," 1re're convinced, was the best dramatic performance given at N.H.S. in years. The cast did a wonderful job, and everyone worked hard to make the play a success Our thoughts are still dwelling upon the majesty and splendor of the Prom, held on May 10, which brought to a fitting climax our junior year at N.H.S.

The other members were Jim Lyon,Ann Good, Jerry Pickell, George Bentz, Holbrook Rickert, Bob Parcells, Ken Sovereign, Jim Moser, Nancy Nelson,Helene Hayes, Mary Ann Brock, Barbara Van Adestine, and our advisor, Mr. Hill. In September we got off to a slow start because of many newcomers, but were in full swing by the end of the first quarter. Our first activity was the sponsoring of Homecoming in November. The day was a great success with many floats and participants. The Social Gom ittee of the Council put on a number of all-school parties. The first, in October, was an old-fashioned barn dance which was enjoyed by all. The Christmas Party and nRu pus Niten completed the calendar of all-school parties. For the first time in the history of N.H.S.,a method of leaving assembly was put into action. It was com only known as Wsenior seniority.N Plans for a student-activity ticket were in the making, with the possibility of the tickets' being used for out-of-town athletic contests. The Magazine Drive sponsored by the Council went over its quota of 82000. This year the profit was divided among the different classes in proportion to the number of sales made by each class. A revision of the constitution providing for a new method of electing the president of the Student Council was made. Following this amendment, the president will be elected in the spring of his junior year by the student body and will represent the whole school in- stead of an individual homeroom. With these improvements and activities, we sincerely hope we have served the entire student body and have helped pave the way for a better Student Council for 19117-19748. TEE While watching the study hall boards for announcements , you prob- ably wondered why the Girl Reserves were not mentloned The answer lies in the fact that the club has had a change in name, with the result tha.t we are now known as Y Teens Though we may forget the name,we certainly sha.n't forget the good times we've had throughout the year. Our officers for the season were: Beverly Zaininger, president, Rosemary Martin, vice president, Norma Hea.ther,secretary, and Ellen Otterpohl, trea surer Also, the club was fortunate in having Miss Brown as advisor On the first and third Monday evenings of each month, we sophomore, jun- ior, and senior girls met to hear speakers or to join in a more informal program. Our first big event was the G.R. Hallowe 'en Dance, followed by in- itiation a.nd the acceptance of our new name. Then, after a very successful Orphanage Party, we settled dovm for the Christmas holidays. During 19lL7, we all had a good time celebrating our Birthday Supperg and I'm sure no one will forget the Father-Daughter Banquet, which could not have been successful without our Mother Council. In order to repay them for their help, we ended our year with Mothers' Night, followed by the Farewell Picnic. So, regardless of the change in name, the Y-Teens function with the same purpose in mind-"To find and give the best." GIRLS' LEAGUE If you happened to wander into the gym on any one of a number of Tuesday home-room periods during the yea.r,you probably walked right into the middle of one of our G.L. meetings. While apologetically backing out of the door, you may have exclaimed to yourself, "What an overwhelming number of girlsl' Every girl in N.H.S. belongs to Girls' League, and every one of them has a part in its organization. This year our club was headed by Jeanne Clemens, presidentg Mary Lehman, vice-presidentg Alice May Otterpohl, secretary, Ann Good, treasurer, and Miss Gamertsfelder, our advisor. Polly Givler and her Program Committee presented us with some interesting half-hours, covering everything from movie lectures to discussions about clothes and make-up. The Social Committee, under Joann Baumgartnerfs leadership,planned our choco- late chats ,the Freshman Welcome, the Valentine Party,and the May Day Supper which were lots of fun! Pat Ory, with the help of her "Travel" staff, jam- med us all into buses and shipped us to "Harvey," "Lute Song," and the "Chicago Theatre of the Air." The year's finances were ably handled by Ann Good and the Finance Coxmnitteeg and, if there were any odd jobs to be done, the Service Committee with Mary Ann Krueger leading the way, was "Johnny on the spot." This has been a good year in G.L.l Here's to more of them! NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The National Honor Society of Naperville High School consists of juniors, seniors, and graduates. Membership is based on char- acter, scholarship, 1eadership,and service. Members are elected from the upper twenty- five percent of the senior class and upper fifteen percent of the junior class by a two-thirds majority vote of the faculty. The senior members are fseatedl Beverly Zaininger, Norma Heather, Cstandingj Jeanne Clemens, Charles Russell , and Donald Koten.

As usual, much of our time was spent in the pleasant sport of conver- sation. The winter season was topped off with the annual Varsity Club Party This year there were several new and improved ideas in the way of decora- tion. In addition to the surroundings of trophies and sporty atmosphere, within the gym itself there was set aside a. small uniform-strewn locker room and a. table of old sports photos which seemed to hold a great interest for all. These photos are some which have been in the athletic office for many years, bringing back memories of teams gone by to some of the fellows who have time to kill, but this is the first time that they have had a. public showing. Incidentally, the traditional refreshments of home-made pie, sup- plied by frosh-soph lettermen, and ice cream were in abundance. HOME ECONOMICS CLUB The N.H.S. Home Ec. Club is composed of about forty-three members. It meets every second and fourth Tuesday of the month with Phyllis Hosler, presidentg Shirley Yackley CJr.J,vice-president, and Joan Hiltenbrand, sec- retary-treasurer. Our program theme for the year is "Girls United". At the beginning of the year We had our a.nnualPotluck Supper after which we had the installation of new members. During the Christmas Season we participated in the World Festival Drive to send packages to children in Europe. Each year we send a delegate to the summer camp, which is at Lake Bloomington, Illinois. Also, every year a Rally Day is held at some nearby school. The last outstanding event in which our club participates is that of the Home Economics Club Tea at the time of the styling of garments made in the clothing classes.

At these meetings a different phase in the life of a Roman boy was discussed. Beginning with the birth and naming of a Roman boy, the story finally ended with the burial of the Roman man. The b i g event of the year was the Roman Banquet, which proved to be very grand. We all dined whzile reclining in true Roman manner. EL ELUB EEFHNUL SPANISH CLUB This year ihe Spanish Club, under the direc- tion of MaryAnnKrueger, presidentg Pat Ory,sec- retary-treasurerg and Miss Brown, sponsor, participated in numerous school activities. In the homecoming parade our club was represented by a brightly decorated "Fordecito." In the 'winter we had an informal dinner with Mexican food and decor- ations. The winners of the Spanish games were awarded Mexican - made baskets. Pan American Day, an important date for our club, was celebrated at an assembly program. The Spanish "Comida", a gala affair , climaxed the club activities for the year. CLARA BARTON LEAGUE The Clara. Barton League is organized to include all girls who are inter- ested in the vocational possibilities of nursing. With the need for nurses so great, the organiza- tion seeks to guide girls in their decision to en- ter the nursing profes- sion. Group projects such as trips through hospitals, talks, and so- cial affairs add inter- est to the group. LENSMEN The Lensmen,under the supervision of Mr. Hol- land, had a very educa- tional yea.r.The officers, were Bob Sebastian, pres- identg Ed Knickerbocker, vice-presidentg and Ken Sovereign,seoretary-trea- surer. The club meets on- ly once every two weeks. The time was divided in- to talks by members, and the showing of pictures taken by members. LEADERS' CLUB Leaders' Club is com- posed of a. group of jun- ior and senior girls who wish to gain experience in leadership and prepare for a career in the field of physical education. The girls assist in phys'I.m'.I. education classes as well as in after school athletics. The club is ably sponsored by Miss Stark and headed by Anna. Nevsimal, presi- dent, and Jean Wehrli, secretary-treasurer. CHORUS The chorus has been very fortunate in having Mr. Weldy as its director this year,his first in Naperville. Nevertheless, he has presented the group in concert on no less than five different occasions. At the High School Christmas program the Chorus furnished the musical setting for the tableau. It appeared before a large audience at the Naperville Youth Congress in Feb- ruary. The same month it sang before the junior and seniorhlgh school moth- ers. It presented anassembly program in Marchand concluded the year in May with its annual appearance at the High School Baccalaureate. The Chorus also journeyed to Elgin to sing in the annual Fox Valley Music Festival in the spring. ORCHESTRA Under the able direction of Mr. Robert McCabe, our orchestra has grovm from a mere handful of strings to an active organization whose instrumenta- tion is constantly increasing. So far this year, our public appearances have been limited to playing for the Christmas takileau, but our plans include assembly programs, in both high school and grade schools, and we may participate in the Commencement week doings . K BAND Both First and Second Bands in N.H.S. are organizations that are hard to ignore. If you're not a. member yourself, perhaps a brother or sister is, or you've been brovrbeaten into buying a ticket to their annual concert at which both bands perform. You may have been an accompanist for one of them at their solo recitals, and you ca.n't have missed seeing them marching in the Homecoming and Memorial Day parades. And who can forget First Ba.nd's fancy antics on the football field? Then too, there are the assemblies they've put on, and First Band's trip to the Fox Valley Music Festival. Of course none of this would be possible with out the efforts of the well-liked band- master, Mr. Elmer Koerner, whose jokes lighten ma.ny a practice session. One must graduate from Second Band before he is eligible for First Band membership. The First Band practises the first three days afthe week during the sixth hour. The Second Band rehearses at the same time on Thursdays and Fridays. The officers of the First Band are James Lyon, presidentg Dick Schloerb, vice-presidentg a.nd Eldora. Frederickson, secretary-treasurer. JOURNALISM CLUB It is the purpose of Journalism Club to at- tract aspirants to the newspaper profession. The organization, which meets the first and third Fridays of each month, prepares .the copy for our high V school newspaper which is part of the local "Sun" and "C1arion." For 19146-19147 Dave Seidel was elected editor with Dee Netzley as his assistant. Norman Rubin, Warren Bauder, and Don Cowan served as sports writers , while all club members acted as reporters for the various activit- ies at N.H.S. The Journalism Club climaxed its year's work with the traditional Jour- nalism Banquet. ALPHA HI-Y This year, with very capable boys holding office, Jack Klingbeil, presi- dentg Charles Russell,vice-presidentg Ronald Baumgartner,seoreta1-yg and Joe Mazza, treasurerg we got off to a good start. Elmer Landorf was elected service chairmang Dick Schultz, food chairmang Franklin Peterson,membership chairman3Dick Sch1oerb,devotions chairmangand Chuck Russell ,program chairman. We've had several pot luck suppers this year, and also many interesting programs. At one of our meetings the Boys' Glee Club, under the direction of Mr. Weldy, sang. At another Mr. Van Adestine gave an informal lecture on the northern section of our country. Last win- ter Professor Schap of North Central College, a. former member of the facultyaf N.H.S. ,talked on college requirements Just before spring the club enjoyed movies of the 19746 World Series. i.,,z',- V JUNIOR RED CROSS COUNCIL t The Junior Red Cross Council is composed of one representative from each home room. It plans and executes Junior Red Cross activities which develop a sense of re- sponsibility fer the wel- fare of others. During the war, hundreds of books and scrap books were sent to service men, and numerous art and sewing projects were completed. The Council also has charge of the packing of gift boxes sent each year to unfortunate children and of the annual membership drive. Thanks to the generosity of N. H. S. students, each campaign has been a success. The officers for this year were Marilyn Weissenborn, presi- dentg Norma Heather, vice-presidentg Joan Rogers, secretary-treasurerg and Miss Scroggie was our sponsor. BETA HI-Y The year of l9h6-l9h7 has been one of the most successful in the recent history of Beta Hi-Y. The club conducted an auction of "Lena the Pig" in November and thirty of the fift dollar proceeds went to the Save the Chil Y ...L dren Federation in New York for aid to school children in foreign lands. The meetings for the year have been interesting and stimulating, with a large part of the time being devoted to serious discussions. The Hi-Y code of Ethics was studied carefully, andeachmember had an opportunity to assess his value to the club. Most meetings of the year have opened with a devotion, which always seems to get things started well. There have been sev- eral interesting speak- ers. Miss Gale spoke on "What Hi-Y is About." Bob Keyes gave an inter- esting talk on his "Im- pressions of Japan." Mr Mona,ghan,Boy's Work sec- retary, gave a most in- spiring talk for the fi- nal meeting of the year. G I R L S' A T H L E T I C A S S O C I A T I O N When everything else that happened during the school year is put in the background of memory,many a girl is bound to recall her pleasant activities as a member of G. A. A. Ah, yes, those were the days! In early fa.ll,she joined her friends either inpractising Casey's skills, making use of the streamlined archery equipment, or in playing volley ball or cage ball. Then when the jack-o-lanterns were first becoming things of the past, she was officially initiated into the Girls' Athletic Association. By this time, she and her friends were spending their after school hours on a soccer field, playing soccer and speedball. Jack Frost was welcomed with a pat on the backboard as G.A.A. met basket- ball. A class basketball tournament and banquet followed by a like tourna- ment in volleyball closed the season. Miss Stark, the genial sponsor of the organization, with Ruth Drendel, presidentg Millie Bodhaine, secretaryg and Gwenn Foreman, treasurer of the club, planned two home play nights, one league play night at West Chicago, and also one at N.C.C., a. roller skating party and a picnic. All in all, these are wonderful memories 3 don't you agree? SCIENCE CLUB Amid exploding phosphorus ard odorziferous carbon disulfide ,Chuck Russell, Larry Gregory, and Marjorie Schweitzer, came into their own as officers of Science Club. Though few in number, the meetings did not lack excitement. There were a few worried moments as to whether Chuck's phosphine gas experi- ment would go to completion, but all turned out well and the smoke rings rose according to plan. Larry's "barking dogs" exploded true to form whzlle Howie's P305 smoke screen fizzled to a miserable end. Despite the din,the Science Club members, true to their purpose, managed to gain a little more practical experience in their scientific research. 'UTHE FIGHTING LITTLESU Junior Class Play Then there is the Junior Class Play! Every year about the same time in the fa.1l,the juniors get out all their prospective talent and present their version of an amusing play, and the class of 'h8 is no exception. On Fridayani Saturday evenings,November 15 and 16, "'lhe Fighting Littles" was presented to an appreciative audience. This three-act comedy is about a young teen-age girl, Goody Little Cplayed by Ann Goodj, who can't seem to decide between her beaux, Ham Ellers, CHolbrook Rickertl and Norman Peel CJim Simel. Henriette, a southern belle CJoan Baileyl, quickly decides Goody's mind. The antics of the adolescents , Filmer and Antoinette CJerry Pickell and Geraldine Krantzj, provide the humorous twist. Mr. and Mrs. Little CEdward Lyon and Sharon NielsenJ,a.re the victims of this deplorable situation. However, :Ln the end it aJ.l straightens out, and everyone is greatly relieved. The cast was ably supported by Nancy Dudley, Constance Haas, Evelyn Bauer, Lois Baumgartner, Eugene Sprague, Pat- ricia Riedy, and Beverly Brunnnel. 'JANUARY THAWW Senior Class Play "On the eighteenth of April..." in 'MT the senior class presented the first of two successful performances of the three-act comedy, "January Thaw." Herbert Gage, a New York author Clioward Ellisj, and his family have just finished remodeling an old Connecticut farm house, when Jonathan and Matilda Rockwood William Kupke and Ma.ryAnn Krueger! return and place their claim on the property. Because of an overlooked clause in the deed the Rockwoods retain the right to live in the house until the end of their days.The Gages urldllingly submit and with the differences of opinion involving politics and modern conveniences, the two families settle down to a. miniature civil Faro The tension is not relieved when the eldest Gage daugh- ter,Barbara CElea.nor Foucekl, mysteriously disappears with the Rockwood's son,Ma.tt fEdward Knickerbockerl. To add to the misery, a typical New England blizzard cuts the house- hold off from all outside communication. With a case of olives, a package of cornflakes, and a jug of molasses, the Gages prepare to weather the storm. Meanwhile, the Rockwoods are using to good advantage the harvest of their summer garden. One by one the hungry members of the Gage family desert Herbert for the wa.rm,homey room of the Rockwoodsh Finally Herbert, too, succumbs and joins the rest of his family. When Matt and Barbara return and are not mar- ried, the two families become reconciled. Rita Fredenhagen played Marge Gage,Jean Wehrli and Norma Heather were the Gage daughters. George Husted was played by Kenneth Shif- flerg Frieda., by Gwendolyn Foremang Mr. Loomis,by Jack Scrogginsg Uncle Walter, by Joseph Mazzag Carson, by James Shimkus. The play was a challenge to the stage and property committees who spent much time in preparing the un- usual set. 1- t a'rhIETiL5 Kuhn,Baumga.rtner, and Vermaat as well as baclcfieldmen Parcells, Falkenstein VARSITY FOOTBALL Our Redskins ,strengthened by the return of seven lettermen,found the com- petition in the Little Seven much to their liking this year. Their record of seven wins, one loss, and one tie enabled them to attain second place in the conference and also includes overwhelming victories over East Aurora and Marmion. The team's only loss was at the hands of Geneva onrlovember 2, and the tie was a 13-13 affair with Dundee. Coach Harshbarger had the boys in top form,and his retirement before the Geneva game dealt the team a crip- pling blow. Special recognition was given to four players on this year's squad by their election to the All-Conference team. Those four were center, Cecil Brown, half back,Chuck Steck, end John Zolvinski and tackle c ,, Q s Lalvrvy- Gregory. Rounding out the first squad ,were linemen Rieser, Bentz, Ilichtl, 3 Heun, Wehrli, and Eby.

Charles O' FROSH-SOPH FOOTBALL The frosh-soph football squad brought a championship home to N. H. S. this year. They emerged undefeated in conference competion, winning most of their games by two or three touchdowns. Their lone defeat was a non- conference affair with East Aurora, the first game of the season. Coach Welzel fielded a heavy line composed of Schulze, Brown, Sovereign, Mueller, Rieser, Effner, Cowan, and Breyne. The fast, shifty backfield was made up of Dornburg, Sebastian, Gauger, Modaff, and Falkenstein. Roger Dornburg turned in the outstanding performance of the year by breaking the conference scoring record with 106 points. However the whole team was impressive and deserve a. pat on the back for their fine showing. SCOREBOARD NDH QS 0 East Aurora.

The Redskins presented a small but fast quintet headed by Captain Don Heun, the squad's highpoint man. During their nineteen games, the Redskins totaled six wins against thirteen losses. In conference play they won six and lost eight, enabling them to finish fifth. The season was highlighted by the defeat of the powerful Batavia Bulldogs, one of the better teams in the conference. The squad was composed of seniors I-Ieun, Knosher, Brown, Shiffler, Dagenais, Mathiasen, Haggart, and Zolvinski. Sievert, Vermaat, Bentz, Baumgartner, and Rickert represented the junior class, and Parcells was the lone sophomore. Cecil Bro1m's name 1rill go on the free-throw trophy for having the highest percentage of free throws made.

In conference play their record was six wins against eight losses ,duplicating that of the var- sity's. The squad was composed of Brown, Moser, Dornburg, Sebastian, Van Pouche, Ehrhardt, Enck, Glass, Mueller, and Bergh. Jim Moser was the high point man for the year, while Bob Ehrhardt made free throws his specialty. The team showed great possibilities in many of its games , often losing out in the last few minutes. Many of these boys will move up to the varsity next year and should help strengthen Coach We1zel's squad of returning Juniors.

Three members of the thin clads, Shiffler, Morrison, and McClenaghan were selected to compete in the state track meet by virtue of their outstanding records. Shiffler, who set a new school mark of h:33.2 in the mile, finished sixth and McGlenaghan narrowly missed copping a state title in the pole vault, finishing second to his tra- ditional rival Laz of West Aurora. Other fine erformances were given dur- : P ing the regular season by Zolvinski and Rumsfeld in the hurdles, Steck in the dashes, Morrison and Case in the mile, Cowan and Shimkus in the hhO, and Shimkus, Wehrli, Steck, and Cowan in the relay. In the field events Dobrowski established a new school record in the shot put, with Dichtl also entering in the event. Stibbe and Kuhn threw the discus, and Heun divided his time between the high jump and pole vault. Rounding out the squad were Pickell, Vermaat, Sargent, J. Shultz, and Drake. All in all, Coach Harsh- barger's boys had a very successful season, and with many of these boys re- turning next year the future looks just as bright. C H E E R L E A D E R S N.H.S.
