etiectionS NILES TOWNSHIP COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL SKOKIE, ILLINOIS -Lots iacferikioveM_ J? 4 4 CITIZENS Peter Kluesing Niles Ivan Paroubek Skokie The Trojans of old believed that the destiny of their lives was shaped by the chance will of many gods and goddesses—some friendly, some not. We Trojans of Nilehi are more fortunate! Five people—all united in a friendly, helpful interest—are elected to direct the destiny of N. T. H. S. The people of the township have entrusted to these five representatives the responsibility of providing the best educational opportunities so that, like the men of Troy, we modern Trojans may become “scholarly, brave, and true.” 4 Our O. rojan A. L. Biehn, Superintendent The leader of the Trojans, Dr. A. L. Biehn, has the challenging task of guiding high school students through these perilous times. His prime interest is in education for victory—victory in winning the war, in winning the peace, and in establishing democratic ideals throughout the world. The educational program at N.T.H.S. has been developed to train us to understand and to follow the prin¬ ciples on which our country was established. We appreciate Dr. Biehn’s ceaseless efforts in this direction. 5 Jrojan Counselors John C.

To train its students in clear and democratic thinking is one of the first aims of every school in this country, where independence is cherished above life itself. At Nilehi the Student-Faculty Forum has come to the front as a living symbol of democracy at work. In this body is vested the power of the students to have a voice in their government; and it is through this organization that a clearer understanding between teachers and pupils is attained. The combined leadership and ability of its members and officers has enabled the Forum to secure some outstanding achievements throughout the year; and by so doing, the citizens of tomorrow learn by being the citizens of today.

With Miss Harbert as their capable and hard-working sponsor, they planned, advertised, and carried out many activities with huge success. The whole school has benefited from their efforts and we hope that this organization will continue next year. Top rmv, left to right: Annalicse Nachbauer, Barbara Abbott.

A jeep rally was in order, with one of Nilehi’s jeeps being presented by the students to Private Lees of Camp Skokie. Niles Township can well be proud of its stamp and bond record for the past year, and also of those who pushed the sales so effectively. Through colorful posters, announcements, and personal contact, these people helped to make this year one of the most generous and patriotic in Trojan history.

This year, for the first time in our school’s history, we had a scrap drive. All patriotic stu¬ dents industriously trudged to school with a piece of scrap. Some rendered their services by hauling heavier pieces of metal in cars. Miss Harbert’s activities committee was in charge of the entire project, and here they are grouped around the budding scrap heap.

If ed CroAA Council The Red Cross has always done vital work, and in time of war that work is doubly impor¬ tant. The four students on the Junior Red Cross Committee and their sponsor. Miss Line, have done a fine job during the past year.

Most of these members of the Monitors Club look happy, but Jack Bylsma and William Anderson seem rather glum. Perhaps they haven’t caught their quota of people without passes yet. Ed Keegan is very slyly looking out of the corner of his eye for his next victim. If you are stopped without a pass by these stu¬ dents, you will at least receive a smile with your detention.

They may not be running for a fourth term and they may not be faced with international politics, but it is chiefly on their shoulders that the problem of home room administration rests.

C hristmas Decorations Nilehi owes a debt of gratitude to the aspiring Trojans who planned and produced this year’s Christmas decorations.

On Tuesday, November 9, the second annual Parents’ Night was again held for the fathers and mothers of Nilehi. The school, whose daytime beauty was surpassed by its sparkling illumination, stood cloaked in a mist of radiance —a truly appealing and impressive sight for the nocturnal visitors. The enthusiastic parents started the evening with an air of self-confidence; but before many minutes had elapsed, an atmosphere of bewilder¬ ment seemed to preside through the corridors. The scowling lady at the right was ardently trying to decipher Junior’s illegible handwriting, while the gentleman standing next to her exem¬ plifies one of the evening’s many lost souls. p. aren ts Ah, at last an oasis looms in the midst of hopeless confusion—the biology room! Every¬ one felt quite at ease except for the mother at the fourth table from the front, who just couldn’t help those uncomfortable glances at the pickled specimens on the shelf. Now you know what Susie goes through every day—and just before lunch, too! The way to a student’s brain is through his stomach; and so, in accordance with the normal school day, there was food. The parents, in the role of their offspring, of course, had unusually hearty appetites; and the breadline was its usual crowded self. nudit. Sun This is probably the only time you have ever seen this active group in a motionless study. They comprise the staff of the Nilehilite, and they have spent their “school days” in a fast and furious attempt to keep you posted on Nilehi’s doings. And so for their hard and con¬ scientious work, we offer our congratulations to this year’s staff for a high stack of extra-special 1943-44 “Nilehilites.” First rou ' , left to right: Dolores Johnson, Jack Price, Nona Holappa, Harriet Hart, Joan Taylor, Doris Hampton, Jean Kelley, Barbara Mason.

This organization, under the direction of Mr. Collins, has displayed the high¬ est quality of loyalty and school spirit by provid¬ ing pep and color at several school assemblies in addition to every home football and basket¬ ball game.

Another organization which deserves a great deal of credit is the orchestra. Though the play¬ ing personnel of thirty is somewhat smaller than that of the band, the patience and encourage¬ ment of their leader, Mr. Collins, has spurred the members on to enviable accomplishments.

Jim Rasmussen, end Another senior who really showed he had what it takes as the season went on. Ed Dean, end A junior, who played in the center of the line last year, but switched to end this vear to play a consistently good game. Jim Harrer, guard One of two sophomores good enough to make the varsity. Jim was handicapped because of injuries. Jack Harrer, half-back Jack, a senior, was elected the team’s most valuable player. He ran over (not around) opponents. Art Schmidt, end A junior who could snag passes, tackle, and kick extra points. Roland Piastrelli, tackle A senior who did a great job in filling Fritz Tolzien’s shoes when Fritz was injured. Chuck Gockenbach, half-back Another senior who will be missed next year. Chuck could run, pass, and if need be, kick. Jack Ritter, quarter-back Jack, a senior, was one of the best blockers on the team and the most vicious tackier. Bill Meyer, full-back A terrific little runner who plunged like a fullback, hut was as shifty as a halfback. He is also a senior. Don Christensen, quarter-back Christy, a junior, was a real scrapper and will be back to do more of the same for next year’s eleven. Chuck Valkenaar, guard Chuck played a steady game all year. He also will graduate. Bob Roman, end The only other sophomore to make the team. Bob turned in some nice playing. Touchdown (Lozver picture) Juzt another tally for the Trojans zvho thoroughly trampled their old rivals Lake Forest 33 to 12. This zvas the Trojan’s fifth con¬ secutive victory of the year. At this stage of the game the Scouts had lost most of their fight and zverc ready to accept defeat. Bob Sandin, center A senior who really did some fine replace¬ ment work. 48 Jack Fredericks, half-back A junior who topped everyone in the scoring department. He was one of the fastest men on the team. Jim Lannert, end Played some great ball in the early part of the season and then came injuries. He is a senior. Bob Warehan, guard A senior who knew ' what he w r as doing and played good football whenever he was called upon. Fred Tolzien, tackle A senior who captained this year’s outfit. He played top football until late in the season when an injury forced him to the sidelines. Charles Leibrandt, full-back Senior Chuck Leibrandt did just about every¬ thing except referee this year. He called plays, ran, passed, blocked, and kicked. Bob Weidenmiller, guard Bob, senior lineman, bolstered the line when¬ ever he was in there. Good on offense, even better on defense. Quentin Blewett, center A hard working sub who is a senior. Bob Ellis, end A hard fighting senior who made it tough on anyone trying to go around his end. Bill Shay, tackle Bill was all a lineman should be plus a great passer. He pulled out of the line several times to connect on long heaves. Bob Denley, guard Still another senior who won’t be back to do or die for old Nilehi. Bob did more than bis share in making the ’43 season a success. Bob Humburg, guard Bob, a senior, plugged away all year. Jack Price, half-back Jack, another senior, was out most of the season with a sprained ankle. Bob Arnold, full-back A good player, who could be used next year. Frank Boufford, guard An outstanding guard who was one of the main factors in the Trojan forward wall. Milan Voyvodich, manager This was Milan’s fourth year as manager of the Trojan eleven. And may we extend our congratulations to a sw ell guy. Bob Berkow, manager Another boy who received praises from the coaches for his splendid work as manager.

You’ll See These Next Year. Indispensible to the junior varsity and freshmen squads are the junior varsity cheerleaders. These are the girls who do all of the hardest jobs and receive the least amount of glory.

Evanston J.V., Sept. 25 Traveling to Evanston, the Trojan gridsters scored a knockout blow on the Wildkit junior varsity 26 to 0 in the season opener. The Men of Troy were slow to start but made up for it in the second and third quarters, scoring all of their points then. Leyden, Oct. 1 The Trojans drew first blood in the first quarter with a sustained drive of 69 yards. The Eagles came back in the second with a safety and a touchdown but before the half ended Leibrandt intercepted an Eagle pass, paving the way for another Trojan tally. The second half found both teams scoring one apiece and the final score of the rough and tumble contest was 20 to 16. Warren, Oct. 8 Taking for granted that the Warren game would be a pushover, N.T.H.S. was greatly surprised when they were the ones being pushed. Warren gave and asked no quarter and the Trojans were lucky to escape with a 13 to 13 tie instead of the defeat they deserved. Crystal Lake, Oct. 15 Racking up their third victory in four starts the Trojan grid machine downed a fighting Crystal Lake eleven 19 to 14. Starting off with their usual power and drive the Troys piled up two touchdowns in the first quarter but were unable to keep up the pace after scoring their tally in the second quarter. Arlington, Oct. 22 The home team found easy pickings when they met the Cardinals, decisively trouncing them 20 to 0, making it four straight. Scoring in every quarter except the last, Nilehi showed the fans some colorful offensive playing; and to top it off they played the best defensive ball of the season. Lake Forest, Oct. 29 Reaching their top form the Trojan gridsters ran wild over a surprised Lake Forest squad, trampling them 33 to 12. This was the home team’s fifth victory of the year. Libertyville, Nov. 5 Proving to be much more powerful than expected. Libertyville’s aggressiveness and spirit to fight back snowed the Trojans under 37-13. Although overpower¬ ing the Wildkits in the first half, the Trojans were unable to cope with Libertyville’s point producing machine in the second half; thus marking up the Trojan’s first defeat of the year. 50 J4. ontecomincj Hoboes This is part of the Homecoming celebra¬ tion. The hoboes above are Elaine Dali and Mars Bishop. These two were elect¬ ed King and Queen of the hoboes. In the background is the Niles band which played at all the home games. Drop Kick Here Harrer is dropkicking for the extra point in the Lake Forest game. This is another ex¬ ample of the strength the Trojan line pos¬ sessed. Players vis¬ ible are Rasmussen (38), Leibrandt (45), Ritter (20), Boufford (47), Shay (35), and Schmidt (11). Line Plunge Jack Harrer, left halfback, smashes his way through the Scout line for an¬ other big gain. Bill Shay (35) trails the play while Bruce Gifford (15) gets a warm’s eye view of the goings on. Arlington Falls Bucking the line was the key to the Trojan success over Arlington. This method of attack wore down the smaller line of the Cardinals, enabling the Troys to win by the lop-sided score of 20 to 0. Pictured here is Rasmussen (38) ready to join the in¬ terference. Extra Point! Arty Schmidt converts the extra point from placement after one of five Xilehi touchdowns in the Lake Forest game. The Trojan line holds while the attempt is made. Frank Boufford (in the center of the picture) is the big half of the Troy line. 51 Action Teamwork Kxecuting a per¬ fect deception play, the Trojans opened a beautiful hole for Harrer (30) who plunged his way through for another touchdown against Crystal Lake. This proved to l e a tough game for the Trojans but they were capable of it, coming through with a 19 to 14 win. First Aid After being shaken up quite a bit in the second quarter of the Arlington game, Boufford (47) finally had to leave the field. Pictured here are Coaches Isaacson, Kent, and Mackey, who appear worried about Bouf’s injuries. Trojan Spirit The crowd (what there was of it) appears to be pretty happy, and w’hy shouldn’t they be, for the Trojans were in the process of trouncing Lake For¬ est by quite a huge score. The cheer¬ leaders on the left did a great job that day making up for the small attend¬ ance. 52 VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM Top row, left to right: Coach Boh Mackey, Charles Leibrandt, Croat Kuhn, Jack Harrer, Jack Fredericks, Eugene Putnam.

As long as can be remembered Niles has never won an opening game in basket¬ ball, and this year was no exception. Gockenbach led the scoring for the losers with eleven points. Evanston The Trojans suffered their second straight de¬ feat of the season, losing to Evanston 31 to 13. The score speaks for itself. Niles was outplayed on both offense and defense. The Trojans had not yet come into their own, but at various in¬ tervals the team showed signs of improvement. Waukegan The Trojans, playing before a packed house, whipped a good, fast Waukegan team to the tune of 54 to 45. Niles was unstoppable as they outscored the Brownies in every period. Artie Anderson led the assault with seven field goals and three free throws. Maine With a few bad breaks the Trojans were nosed out by Maine 31 to 35. For three periods the game see-sawed back and forth with Maine possessing a slight edge. Towards the latter part of the game the Trojan team literally fell apart. Lacking a defense they could do nothing with their offense. Gockenbach left the game early, hampering the Trojan cause considerably. Leyden With blood in their eye, Niles snowed under a poor defenseless Leyden team 39 to 21. The Trojans started out like a house on fire, scoring eighteen points in the first period. From that point on the Trojans had no difficulty what¬ soever. Libertyville The Trojans turned back a strong Libertyville team 52 to 44. Niles trailed at half time 22 to 28. The third period saw a flurry of baskets with Niles getting the edge which they kept to the final whistle. Back rmy, left to right: Mark Jenkins, Bob Sandin, Jack Fredericks and Jim Moore. Front row: Chuck Leibrandt, Grant Kuhn, Jack Harrer, Gus Wagner, Chuck Gockenbach, Gene Putnam, Rollic Poehlman, Art Anderson, and Coach Mackey. One For Gockenbach Gockenbach scores a tally for the Tro¬ jans. putting them back in the game against the experienced Maine Pioneers. Jenkins took the ball off a fast break setting it up for Chuck, who drove in for the score. Maine Scores Again Another tu ' o points for a fast driving Maine quintet, putting the Trojans fur¬ ther behind. This was a tough game to lose for Niles zvhich had won only one of its last three starts. Time Out Taking a locll deserved rest are the first string cagemen.

Using the “fast break” to a good advantage the Tro¬ jans took an early lead which Arlington never did overcome. The deadly accuracy of Moore, Leibrandt and Anderson spelled disaster for the Cardinals. Alumni The Trojans whipped an out-of-condition Alumni team 54 to 43. Ed Boyk put on a one- man show scoring 22 points and Stockfish ac¬ counted for 14. Anderson, Leibrandt and Moore led the attack for the victors. Highland Park For another win in the long series, the Trojan cagemen scuttled a hapless Highland Park five 41 to 18. Nilehi stressed defense in this game and did a fine job, allowing the Parkers only 7 points in the first half. Libertyville The team showed that it was rounding into championship class by turning back Libertyville for the second time, 41-43. This marked the sixth in a string of 13 straight wins. Highland Park (Second Game) The Trojans ran into considerable difficulty as they nosed out a 32 to 31 victory in their last appearance against Highland Park. Because of a slow start Niles trailed at the half 13 to 22. Warren Niles toppled a weak Warren team 63 to 29. Grant Kuhn of the reserves led the attack with 12 points w hile Wagner and Gockenbach rang up a total of 21 points between them. Another Win Following through for another straight win the Troy cagemen overcame a not too powerful Leyden five 40 to 25. The Trojans took the lead in the early stages of the game and kept it until the final horn. Starting five: Mark Jenkins, Jim Moore , Chuck Leibrandt, Coach Mackey, Art Anderson, Chuck Gockenbach.

New Trier Before a capacity crowd the Trojans avenged their earlier defeat by beating New Trier 31 to 29. It was a game packed with thrills and excitement as the Trojans led 31 to 27 with 15 seconds to play. New Trier tried desperately but made only one basket when the gun went off ending the game. Arlington Arlington was another team to taste defeat twice during the season at the hands of the Trojans. Although they made a better showing than in the first game, the Trojans were never in danger. Score, 44 to 39. Evanston This was the second of three “revenge is sweet” contests. The Trojans turned back the powerful Evanston team 41 to 36, and won go¬ ing away. Maine (Second Game) In the second game with Maine, Niles beat their opponents 53 to 40. The Demons were a good match for the Trojans until the last quar¬ ter when the Trojan team tore Maine apart with a bucket barrage that netted 20 points for the gold and blue. Zion (First Game) The Trojans played their last game with Zion and walked all over the foe to win by the lop¬ sided score of 40 to 25. At no time was the Nilehi five in danger or threatened in the least. Varsity Baseball Top row, left to right: A. Schmidt, C. Valkcuanr, K. Stezskal, B. Kunkel, P. Jacobs, W. Freimuth, F. Bernard, F.

This is due to “the will to win” (quot¬ ing Coach Jesse Dees) and it is also due to individual ability and skill. The Trojans defeated Highland Park, Loyola Academy, Lake Forest Academy, and Elgin Academy. The most out¬ standing of these wins was the one against Loy¬ ola, for after losing their first meet here 40 to 28, Niles came back and beat them by 10 points, 38 to 28. Batter Vp ! The opening of the baseball season found plenty of material at Coach Norm Kent’s disposal, for there was a large turnout including an ample supply of veterans. This raised the hopes of everyone for a bigger and better team and al¬ though the boys were up against some pretty tough pitching in their first games they soon found their batting eyes and increased the number of marks in the base hit column. P review Up to the Palatine relays April 29, the Trojan track squad had not as yet reached its peak. The team had failed to win a meet although it had shown signs of having the ability. The team boasts of such stars as Meinke, Aliprandi and Alterini, who are all juniors. Coach Dees predicts that we will have one of the best teams in our school history next season.

Board Representatives The girls pictured here represent one of the most active groups in the entire school—the G.A.A. Chosen as freshmen, they retain their membership during their four years of high school. The achievements of the G.A.A. are wide and varied and include everything from magazine campaigns to school dances. At the end of the school year the proceeds of the maga¬ zine drive are used to send an elected group of girls to G.A.A. camp for a week. Top row, left to right: Jackie Perrin, Mary Jane Nelson, Carolyn Hamden, treasurer, Patricia Schirra, Eleanor Nelson. Bottom row: Beverly Kramer, secretary; Betty Bray, president; Ann Marie Schirra, vice-president. Tumbling Although this is the beginning group of tum¬ blers, its members can do forward rolls, flips, back and front somersaults, and aerial flips. These girls exhibit their skill in performing daring feats at some of the programs sponsored by the G.A.A. The young acrobats may groan about their aches and pains now, but in twenty- five years they will be very glad that they still have their girlish figures, due to the complicated feats of their high school days. Left to right: Lorraine Sorenson, Dorothy Anderson, Marilyn Herbert, Marianne Ruesch, Manlxn Lumpp, Shirley Peters, June Maier, Betty Steek, Ruth Bcrkoiv. Jean Jump Planning Committee Jeans, plaid shirts, plenty of jivy music—what does that sound like? Why, the Jean Jump, of course! This most unusual dance of the year was hugely successful as was indicated by the gigantic turnout. And here is the group of gals who really deserve orchids, for they did the planning and decorating.

Second row: Dolores Lauth, Mildred Zavrel, Anita Schmid, Charlene Werner, Jane Sparkman. Bottom row: Mary Jane Nelson, Carolyn Hamden, Pat Schirra. Archery There is no doubt in the minds of Nilehi’s girls as to the popularity of the archery classes, which are directed by Miss Spikings. Judging from the classes’ membership of thirty-six and also, by the smiling faces of the fair ladies pic¬ tured here, shooting arrows at an innocent little target has been found a rather enjoyable sport. Left to right: Ann Marie Schirra, Betty Bray, Gerry Henberger, Pat Canty, June Ohlson, Miss Spikings, Dolores Wilson, May Robinson. Water Carnival Committee Smiling, and for a change, relaxing, we find Miss Schaefer and the carnival committee. Be¬ sides arranging for rehearsals, costumes, partici¬ pants, music, and so on, members of this group arranged and directed all the swimming num¬ bers, and helped with the surrounding dolls. All that can he said is “Congratulations,” and “Thanks” from the student body! Front: Dolores Chapman. First row, left to right: Rose¬ mary Racine, Miss Schaefer, Mickey Callmer. Last row: Jim Tagney, Don Lyon, Tom Davidson. It seems that the third bass of Don Lyon’s “Quartette” is being unavoidably detained by the provocative glances of the Hawaiian dolls, and who can blame him? Maybe it’s their flashing smiles, or the flowers in their hair, or their magnetic personalities, but whatever it is, it seems to work! Hey, Mac! Remember, the show must go on, and “Mairzydoats” and Don wait for no man! Dolls: Pat Canty, Mary Ann Wenzel, Barbara Horton, Nancy Ohlson, and June Ohlson. Interested visitor: Sherrill MacDonald. 4 Dolls, dolls everywhere—in the Swiss Toy Shop, the setting of the 1944 Trojan Water Carnival. Costumes ranged from Hawaiian glamor girls to comfy-looking mammies, as wit¬ nessed in the picture. Cute scenery, cuter real- live dolls, and plenty of spectacular swimming combined to make this year’s water carnival tops in entertainment.
