VOLUME XIX NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY-FIVE NILES TOWNSHIP COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL SKOKIE. ILLINOIS (rfamnistn tm . Classes . 41 Sjiecmt Cvenis . 89 jlcfmties, . 105 jltliletics . 027 community on the Jhonth Shone... Since 1935, the population of Niles Township has grown from approxi¬ mately 11,000 people to the present 45,000. What was once miles of hayfields is now an area of new homes, industries, and shopping centers. A small, quiet, rural trade center which has developed into a suburban community offering unlimited opportunities to us, its youth—this is Niles Township! Moving into the Niles Township area, our families find a pleasant suburban life, away from the city ' s older and more crowded conditions. We, the youth, find endless opportunities for happy living, education, and employment in modern industries. Here is an ideal community— a community in which we young Americans are rapidly finding our place. 4 5 Girls in sewing classes work in the ultra-mod¬ ern setting of the new wing. ... JtoJetn School facilities... In 1937, when ground was broken for a new high school for Niles Township, few present foresaw that the school would expand to in¬ clude two new wings. At the time the doors of the school first opened, citizens of the town¬ ship doubted that the many rooms would ever be put to use. Today, however, not only is every room in the school occupied every hour of the day, but the cafeteria and library are used as study halls. The wing opened for use last fall, the first of two planned additions on the present site, pro¬ vides us, the students of Nilehi, with the most modern facilities and equipment for applying the theory gained through textbooks. Girls en¬ rolled in the home economics courses no longer find themselves " slaving over a hot stove " or struggling with old-fashioned sewing machines as their mothers once did. The latest equip¬ ment, including a new valve grinding machine, metal lathe, and a camera for offset printing are available to those who have classes in the auto shop, metal shop, and print shop. Because of the ever rising enrollment, how¬ ever, this wing is but the first step in a long range building program. The third floor of this addition, which will include classrooms and a study hall to be ready for occupancy in Sep¬ tember, 1955, was begun ni December. In the spring of this year, contracts were let for a wing to extend north and east, which will pro¬ vide facilities for print shop, wood shop, elec¬ tric shop, mechanical drawing, social studies, and business-education classes. Since the completion of these two additions will provide for only 2,000 students and since the enrollment is expected to reach 1,900 by next fall, even these facilities will be inade¬ quate. Therefore, the next step in our school ' s expansion program will be a new high-school building for Niles Township. Steel beams, cement blocks, and construction equipment are a familiar sight as the school builds to provide for its increasing enrollment. Modern equipment helps boys enrolled in auto shop to learn through experience. Each year finds an ever increasing crowd of Nile- hiers gathered on the front steps on that dread¬ ed, but looked-forward- to day—the first day of school. Every day is registration day at Niles. Mr. Ihne helps a mid-term trans¬ fer make out her pro¬ gram. ... fan 6,600 Students lif 1962 And still they come . . . Our school, which has grown from a student body of 450 in 1937 to its present total of 1,500 students, expects to enroll 1,900 by next fall. Dr. Claude Reavis of the University of Chicago, in a study under¬ taken for the elementary schools as well as the high school, predicts an enrollment of 5,300 to 6,600 by 1962 on the basis of children already in the district. In seven years, then, Niles will move from its position as the sec¬ ond smallest suburban league high school to that of the largest. Returning graduates of the next four years, seeing the masses of students and the new buildings, will feel " you can ' t go home again. ' ' And yet, for all the physical changes, some things will always be the same — the crowd discussing weekend plans at the locker, the mad dash to class before the five-minute bell, and the rush to after-school meetings, all of which add to the excitement in the air. Above all, the same friendly " hi " will still be heard throughout the halls. trf fiQwinq tfidministfiatm § OFFER GUIDANCE AND INSTRUCTION Despite the pressures of our ever increasing stu¬ dent body, Dr. Mason and our teachers strive to meet the needs of each of us. Conferences between our homeroom teachers and parents provide oppor¬ tunities for educational, vocational, and personal guidance to help us and our families better under¬ stand our abilities and interests. The varied curriculum provides opportunities for the development of these different abilities and in¬ terests. Variety of subject offerings, however, is not allowed to substitute for the basic learnings ap¬ proved by tradition; consequently, of the thirty-two required credits, sixteen must be gained in the fields of English, science, mathematics, and history. Furthermore, our choice of electives is so planned that, on the completion of four year ' s work, our knowledge and skills will have been developed in a pattern suitable to our abilities and post-graduate plans. To achieve these educational goals, the faculty has expanded to keep pace with the increasing number of students. Of the seventy-five members of the staff, fifteen were hired this year, six as replace¬ ments and nine as additions, thereby injecting new ideas and vitality into the life stream of the school. This, then, is Nilehi—a school changing, growing in its student body, faculty, and physical plant, yet remaining constant to its ideal of helping each of us build the best possible life for tomorrow! Board members Dr. Walter Bornemeier, Leo Bushey, Warren Meyer, Clyde Anderson, Clarence Payne, and Dr. Daniel Lang study plans for the north wing with Dr. Mason and Miss Helen Johanns. The people of our township express their will con¬ cerning the school through a seven-man Board of Education. These men, whose integrity and good judgment is respected by the entire community, advise without dictating and direct without domi¬ nating in the formation and execution of policies concerning our school. The present board, which has expanded from four to seven members, faces the problem of reconciling the cost of more space for the increasing enrollment to the financial ability of the community. In June the people will be asked to express their approval of another high school by voting the funds neces¬ sary for such a program. Clarence W. Payne, Dr. Walter Bornemeier President of the Board of Education Warren Meyer Leo Bushey Clyde Anderson Dr. Daniel Lang Earl Girard The Parent-Teacher Association, which meets the third Thursday of each month, brings our parents into closer contact with school ac¬ tivities and teachers. This year for the first time a monthly paper, the Nile-A-Gram, was sent to all parents to keep them informed not only of programs for the monthly meeting, but also of fu¬ ture school events and general facts of interest. Selling refreshments at football games, entertaining faculty fam¬ ilies and school board members at a buffet dinner were social ac¬ tivities organized this year under the direction of Mrs. Weissburg, president. For the first time since its organization in 1951, the P.T.A. gave a farewell party for the par¬ ents of graduates. This year a Booster Club was organized to increase attendance at athletic events and give sup¬ port to the players. The Boosters have also taken over the custom of serving refreshments for foot¬ ball and basketball players after the games. P.T.A. officers for 1954-55 are Mr. K. Stevens, first vice-presi¬ dent in charge of programs; Mrs. A. Bolt, second vice-presi¬ dent in charge of the P.T.A. newspaper, the Nile-A-Gram; Mrs. R. White, corresponding secretary; Mrs. A. Weissburg, president; Mrs. D. Ames, re¬ cording secretary, and Mrs. H. Walters, treasurer. Mom and Dad get a taste of what students go through dur¬ ing an Educational Develop¬ ment Testing Program. Parents and teachers have a friendly get-together over cake and coffee after the business meeting. 13 YET FINDS TIME TO BE FRIENDLY WITH EVERY STUDENT Dr. Joseph Mason, B.S., Bradley University, M.S., Ed.M., Ed.D., University of Illinois. " Superintendent " is Webster ' s very simple word for the complex operation of " overseeing or directing some work, en¬ terprise or institution. " Dr. Mason knows from experience how inadequately this word describes the many roles he plays. He has the responsibility of " overseeing " a school pro¬ gram to meet the needs of each of us, of providing leadership and direction for a faculty dedicated to the carrying out of this program, of interpreting the needs of the community in whose service the school finds its reasons for being. Moreover, he is active in civic and educational organizations; he is presi¬ dent of the Rotary Club, president of the Illinois Association of School Administrators, and a member of the Governor ' s Com¬ mittee on Education, a subsidiary of President Eisenhower ' s Committee on Education. And yet Dr. Mason is one of us, a man whose warm greeting is known even to the freshmen. Dr. Mason, architects Edwin Bruno and Thomas Higgins, and Miss Helen Johanns study blueprints for the new north wing. Our advisers are very impor¬ tant people with the authority and responsibilities of an as¬ sistant principal. Pink passes, temporary admits, worthy-in¬ advance absences, help with our class activities, curricular and otherwise, a shoulder to weep on when we need it, and strong words of advice when we ' re banished from class are all to be had in those offices at the end of the first floor! Besides making life smoother for us, the advisers act as lead¬ ers of the homeroom teachers of their class assignment, be¬ long to the administrative coun¬ cil, and represent the school in all matters of concern to par¬ ents. Harold Ohlson, senior adviser, con¬ fers with students in regard to post¬ graduate plans. College-bound sen¬ iors are given the opportunity to in¬ terview representatives of various colleges while career interested stu¬ dents talk to representatives of dif¬ ferent industries. Dr. Arthur Ryden, junior adviser, concentrates on the personality and social development of the students. Marvin Ihne and Marjorie Schwab, sophomore advisers, are particularly interested in strengthening the “hold¬ ing power " of the school. Blanche Suchy, our school nurse, besides keeping an eye on the health of Nilehi students, supervises the annual X-ray program and is in charge of the sight and hearing tests. Have you ever tried to keep track of 20,000 books? Well, that ' s the job of Mary Walker, librarian. Walter Duda, visiting counselor, is concerned with the needs of individual students. Whether the problems are school, home, or social in nature, Mr. Duda helps us find an answer. Dr. Lyman Smith and Aune Toivola. freshman advisers, are concerned with the testing and orientation of incoming students. Margaret de Booy is in charge of such all school services as academic placement research, student activi¬ ties calendar, scholarship informa¬ tion. and teacher and nurse ' s train¬ ing , information. " Bubble, bubble, toil and trou¬ ble. " The witches of MacBeth haunt senior Pat Schoonover as she studies the plays of Shakespeare. ' Jhtouqfi the Cnqlish life £em fyadin ftiiin .’ . . English studies help us to achieve the highest development of our individual personality. We deepen our understanding of ourselves and others and of the world of today and yesterday through an analysis of the great ideas of litera¬ ture. We become more aware of the beauty and power of language as a tool for communicating our thoughts to others more vividly and accurate¬ ly. Reading, speech, writing—the improvement of skills in these areas makes each of us, person¬ ally, more interesting, charming, and effectual and so, more successful in our relationships with others. Priscilla Baker, Department Chairman Ronald Van Arsdale Parepa Rice " How do I sound to others? " Speech students Carol Larsen and Leroy Zender record their voices to find out. Paul Eberhardt Doris Tillmann Helen Smith 19 Neil Butzow, Bruce Debes, and Bob Drake use their slide rules to solve a problem in trigo¬ nometry. Below, geometry stu¬ dent Roberta Simmons puts the finishing touches on her project. ... and ' Jltiouql the i Uath dddejiafttment ... 7 h Mathematics is the language of quantitative think¬ ing. The geometric beauty of every snowflake that falls is witness of its art. By skillful use of the sym¬ bols and techniques of mathematics, we solve the problems of labor, industry, and science. When these symbols and techniques become cumbersome and inadequate, man devises another mathematics as he discovers more of the mysteries of the uni¬ verse about him. In this complex world, a knowledge of mathe¬ matics is essential to work out the tough problems of science, to produce new and wonderful materials, to design new machines for industry. We need math for such occupations as tool and die makers, drafts¬ men, machinists, and airplane pilots. Even those of us who do not need mathematics for our business life find it a great help in solving the problems of everyday living because it develops in us the power to think logically and accurately. Vince Donile measures an angle for construc¬ tion of a geometric fig¬ ure. Lois Adelman shows Doug Stryker the correct steps in solving a prob¬ lem in advanced alge¬ bra. Bob Bonebrake patiently takes notes on the experiment as Joyce De Zutter and Connie Carlson produce hydrogen in the third-floor chemistry lab. Below, the model of a space ship and the skeleton of a chicken become the center of attention for Gary Krauss, Dan Lang, and Jim Eischen. We Jueafm to The Pasteurs and Edisons of tomorrow are developed in our classrooms today. Through the study of science, we gain an appreciation of man ' s ageless struggl e for truth by increas¬ ing our understanding of the complexity of ele¬ ments found in nature and of the order of the universe. In addition, the scientific method, applied in laboratory and classroom courses, develops our reasoning powers and prepares us to think clearly about personal and business problems. Florence Harrison, Department Chairman " What ' s this? " A new world opens to bi¬ ology students Carol Stine, Joel Michael, and Ginny Humburg as they examine the internal structure of the earthworm.

History class chairman Ted Pristash comments on the report made by Sheila Greene, as the class listens and Diana Peterson, class secretary, takes notes. To be a good citizen tomorrow one must build to be a better citizen today. As we pro¬ gress in social studies from the freshman to the senior level, we are made aware of our relationship to the social groups of which we are a part. We learn that it is our responsibility to main¬ tain Nilehi ' s traditions and good reputation. We become acquainted with our community, the services offered, and the protection pro¬ vided through laws passed for the good of the many. We study the state and federal govern¬ ment and trace the development of our coun¬ try with its heritage of freedom and equal rights. Finally, through the study of the history of other countries, we achieve a better under¬ standing of the world in which we live.

Frederick Poor, Marie Green Eugene Napier Joan Coon Onni Hendrickson Department Head 27 Since we live so near the great industrial center of Chicago with its job opportunities, our business-education department strives to develop vocational competency in bookkeep¬ ing, shorthand, typing, and office procedures. These specific skills, however, are only part of our over-all development. We learn, also, general business information that we will need not only as workers but as consumers in our modern economic system. From this study we acquire a better understanding of our relation¬ ship to our modern economic society. " Maybe we should get a few pointers from the salesman who sold you that tie! " re¬ marks Ken Sartini to Bill McFarlane as they use the silk screen process in ad¬ vertising.

" Future homemakers receive training today at Niles in well-equipped laboratories compar¬ able to the most modern homes. A broad pro¬ gram for family living is offered to those of us who are looking forward to establishing homes of our own. In the home-economics department empha¬ sis is placed on the provision of food for the family. We learn the various aspects of plan¬ ning, buying, preparation, serving, conserva¬ tion, and storage in six kitchen units provided with the latest equipment. A beautiful living¬ dining area is used to give experience in enter¬ taining so that even the shyest girls become gracious hostesses. In clothing, problems of selection, care, con¬ struction, assembling accessories, and wearing an ensemble are a vital part of our program. The clothing laboratory, with its late model sewing machines, triple-mirrored fitting room, attractive social area, and large show cases, provides the ideal setting for learning. Homemaking, with its emphasis on selecting furnishings and equipment for the home to¬ gether with providing for the health and care of its members, is education for living.

Robert Mackey Gale Wesley David Murphy Bruce Sorenson Nelson Grote Industrial education courses at Nilehi include industrial arts laboratories, unit shops, and co¬ operative vocational training, which provide us an opportunity for comprehensive develop¬ ment in both general, non-specialized, and spe¬ cialized education. We are being trained for living in a demo¬ cratic society. We are developing desirable attitudes, acquiring knowledges, developing mental and manipulative skills, and preparing for advantageous entrance into many fields of work. We believe that the achievement of these objectives is an essential part of our learning to make adjustments to life and con¬ tributions to the society in which we live.

Through the study of the fine arts, we gain in our ability to express ourselves in art, music, and drama. By developing our interests and talents we are prepared to make more satisfy¬ ing and worthwhile use of our leisure time. Working together in music and drama, we experience a feeling of unity and group ac¬ complishment which develops an insight into human reactions and relationships. Furthermore, through the study of art, music, and drama, we increase our ability to under¬ stand, judge, and appreciate the culture of society, past and present, native and foreign. In this day of international crisis, we believe that the music, drama, and art of a country reveal the way of life of its people as no other media do. Such an insight on a global scale is one road toward that closer fellowship be¬ tween the peoples of the world upon which our future civilization depends. The drama workshop is in “full swing " as acting enthusiasts Bob Martin, Ron Shabel, Dennis Moore, Lynn Watson, and Kathy Krause learn to build and paint scenery.

[fhftouqh [fotieiqn X anquaqes We jZ ) ' iscmfi ine A challenge is offered to the students of for¬ eign language—the challenge of discovering an entirely new country and its people. A study of the romance, culture and customs of a foreign people promotes a deeper under¬ standing and tolerance between races. Through our language study we are given the satisfaction of being prepared to read, in the original, the writings of great men of other nations. We find that " we are there " —in Spain, France, Germany, or ancient Rome—discover¬ ing for ourselves the events of time past or places far away. Furthermore, the pleasure of travel is height¬ ened by the ability to speak a foreign lan¬ guage and by the knowledge of the culture of a race. This year, for the first time, students of Spanish journeyed to Mexico City during spring vacation where they improved their ac¬ cents by conversation with the natives. Donald Blair, Dorothy Hind Department Chairman " C ' est la belle France! " explains French student Claudia Joslyn to her class. Customs and clothing from “south of the border " are a part of learning the lan¬ guage, according to Spanish students Jer¬ ry Altshuler, Diane Daniels, and Felicia Kadens. 35 " I never knew the floor could be so hard!

Physical Cducathn Classes Keefi Its piijsicalhi [fit... In our physical education classes we coordi¬ nate mind and body. Here we develop the physical strength required to keep our bodies functioning properly. Time spent in tumbling, apparatus work, and exercises accomplishes this. Besides developing our bodies, individual and team sports such as tennis, archery, bad¬ minton, swimming, basketball, volleyball, soft- ball, touch football, soccer, and field hockey are learned so that we can enjoy our recrea¬ tional hours. Dance in its varied forms in¬ creases our poise. Through competing cooperatively, we learn the importance of the individual as a member of a team. Sportsmanship is stressed and lead¬ ership opportunities are provided.

" When is the bell going to ring? " " I ' ve forgotten my locker combination! " Although busy keeping the complex organization of Nilehi running smoothly — getting out payrolls, keeping records of expenditures, preparing hand¬ books, mailing report cards—our efficient staff still finds an extra minute to iron out the problems of teachers and students. Like the rest of Nilehi, the office is expanding with six new members added this year. In December, the office was remodeled to provide increased space and greater efficiency. More tests! Jeanne Burghard and Betty Johnson, secretaries, run the ditto in the main office. Helen Snyder, receptionist and switchboard operator, takes care of all prob lems, ranging from lost books to important calls for Dr. Mason. Madeline Young, assistant to the librarian, finds that shelv¬ ing books is a job that ' s never done. Pausing during an office con¬ ference are Theresa Schweitz¬ er, bookkeeper. Florence Kep- peler, registrar, and Ann Brad¬ ley, activity account keeper. Jn Jofi Condition Up go the risers for the hundreds of cheering basketball fans at every home game. Preparing the gym for the eve¬ ning ' s crowd are Harold Palmer, head custodian, Cosmo Bova, Herman Ochs, Edward Breden, and Roy Stockbridge. Martha Wheat, matron, checks on Eileen Corr ' s tank suit after swim¬ ming class. Behind the scenes, after the student ' s day is done, Johanna Einarsen, Martha Cordall, and Margaret Henning clean the classrooms and halls for another day. Preparing for the time when fifteen - hundred famished students will swarm into the cafete¬ ria to see " what ' s cook¬ in ' " are Esther Foun- taine, Marie Hudson, Emily Mussil, Ebba Mc¬ Neill, Frances Garner, and Irene Steek. 0 0 Eight o ' clock and the bell rings . . . the clocks are wrong again! We make a mad dash through the halls (knocking every third person on the floor), and finally reach our destination—homeroom. Crawling to our seats, we make futile attempts to avoid a de¬ tention. The P.A. whispers something after a xylo¬ phone solo and closes with an encore. We try to do some homework but never get much done because we spend the whole ten minutes worrying about all we have to do before second period. Between classes we run the four-minute mile with a minute to recuperate, and then another course commences. After the usual " Calm down! " , " The bell rang " , and " Quiet " , we begin working—or at least—stop talking. Around fourth period, every time we talk we get an answer from our stomachs. Lunch time zooms by . . . we sometimes have time to eat! The day drags on . . . " Memorize fifty lines of Shakespeare " . . . " Test tomorrow! " . . . " Read the next twenty pages. " ... Do this ... Do that . . . Finally, the day over (unless we have a deten¬ tion), we rush to comb our hair for the first time since 8:10. And then, time on our hands . . . until tomorrow!

The Frosh-Soph Mixer -started the year with a bang. We got acquaint¬ ed and made new friends as we took time out for a coke. 85 ctoSSS A committee composed of the Senior Cabinet, advisers, and senior home¬ room teachers selected 20 top seniors on the basis of leadership, service, character, personality, and in the case of boys, athletic ability. This list was then submitted to the senior class who voted these twelve as the leaders of the class of ' 55. Of the twelve, two boys were chosen for their athletic ability. v e bet 3 ( tt°P Jn the ffaes oj 1955 Bob Bonebrake, who leads his class scholastically, takes a quick glance at his homework assignment.

This year we said " hardly " while last year our pet phrase was " neat " ; this year we wore rope beads, last year fur collars; this year boys turned to sad¬ dles, while last year the fad was white bucks. Al¬ though this year brought new fads, new faces, new teachers, and a new building, still some things are always the same.

The expressions on the faces of the team members and coaches reveal the outcome of the Homecoming game with Morton. First of the big events of the year was Homecom¬ ing, held this year on October 16. Though the wind cut our faces and numbed our fingers, it was fun riding in the morning parade through Skokie. Here at last were the pink elephant and the giant panda we thought would never be finished on time. Last minute raids on the local stores for more chicken wire, crepe paper, and paper napkins had been successful. Afternoon found us huddling together under heavy blankets in the football stands, drinking steaming coffee as we watched our Trojans battle the Morton Mustangs. Though we were defeated, our loss didn ' t smother the day ' s excitement. Our Homecoming day was brought to a climax by the " Huddle Up, " our Homecoming dance. Spon¬ sored by the Senior Class, the dance, with its huge mirrored football rotating in the center of the floor, was a success. All too soon the orchestra played " Goodnight Sweetheart, " and Homecoming ' 54 was just another memory. Though the cold day found many shivering under heavy football blankets, attendance at the game with Morton was at its peak. This giant pink elephant float cap¬ tured first prize in the annual Home¬ coming day parade. Constructed of crepe paper, paper napkins, and chicken wire, the float was the work of the " N " Club. Gold and blue mascots, a dog named " Fight " and a cat named " Win, " lead a chant at the Homecoming football game. Lynne Izard and Nancy Keppeler are the mascots this year.

Football uniforms were packed away, Thanksgiving had come and gone, and suddenly we found ourselves humming " White Christmas. " The first Yuletime event of the season, Christmas Vespers, helped put us into the Christmas spirit. On Sunday afternoon, December 12, all the choral groups combined to present this impressive music program for both the students and community. Meanwhile, the juniors had transformed the halls into a Christmas wonderland. All thoughts of studying were abandoned on the last day before vacation as classroom doors were opened to the music of the carolers in the halls. At the end of the day, homerooms became the scene of grab bags, refreshments, and singing. Christmas vacation had come at last, highlighted by " Mistletoe Magic, " the annual Christ¬ mas dance. When the clock struck twelve, we rushed to our cars with " Merry Christmas " ringing through the cold night air. Then came vacation, parties, last minute shopping, sleep, and December 25! 92 Alumnus Jon Stromberg (left) looks forward to meeting old friends at " Mistletoe Magic.

The end of January brought sleet, snow, but worst of all, the burning of midnight oil for all. Cramming sessions and comparing notes over the phone were prevalent those last few days. Mothers were astounded to see fun-loving Junior bury his head in books and notes far into the night. Not even the two half days of school, to which we normally would look forward, could cheer us up. A cloud of gloom hung over Nilehi as 1500 students took semester finals. But our teachers really " let their hair down " the following night in the " N " Club vs. faculty basketball game. The teachers had it over us during exams, but we put them in their place as the " N " Club won decisively. 94 " Just stage fright, that ' s all!

We found that there ' s a little " ham " in all of us as we got our acts together, auditioned, and were final¬ ly accepted. Then came the big night and amid the bright lights, costumes, and grease paint we discov¬ ered our own stage fright. However, although we may have had our doubts and fears during those long night rehearsals, they were soon forgotten as the curtain rose on a smash hit. 96 Ron Shabel, emceeing our Revelries, paced the show in a way to make Ed Sullivan envious. " Hmmmmmmm. Do you think that act was too long? " wonder Reflec¬ tions ' directors Mr. O. Hendrickson and Mr. W. Bost. " Maybe the boy on the left could use a little more make-up? " A more serious act of the talent show was Grace Van Horne ' s beau¬ tiful ballet interpretation of " Tenderly. " Judy Liss applies eye make-up to Jay Denning, who is to portray a 1920 flapper, just before cur¬ tain time. Vaudeville was reviv¬ ed by Nancy Cox and Bob Martin who pre¬ sented a series of imita¬ tions good for a first place tie. Here, Bob gives his impersonation of Maurice Chevalier singing " Mimi. " " Three Guys and a Gal " —Darlene McLeod, Fred Melberg, Lloyd Gadau, and Bill Kuchar — give out their pantomine ren¬ dition of " Sh-Boom " for a first place tie in the show.

Hawaiian dancers Barb Larsen, Carol Gallagher, Betty Porter, and Diane Klinge perform the hula in luminous costumes as " Flight 16 " takes the audience to Hawaii. All aboard for " Flight 16 " —this was the theme of the sixteenth annual water show. We all took a trip around the world via the Nilehi natatorium as the swimmers in each of the acts took us through France, China, India, Hawaii, the Antarctica, and other countries. Airline stewardesses—members of the Ushers Club—took us to our armchair seats for the trip. Swimming may have seemed an ef¬ fortless operation for members of the cast, but actually hours of hard work were put in under direction of Miss Shirlee Wilso n to make the show a memorable event. The presentation of four performances required countless rehearsals and meetings of the chair¬ men of the numbers, student director, and sponsor. " Flight 16 " was the per¬ fect take-off for our spring vacation. Keeping touch with the boys who take care of the sound and lighting are Miss Shirlee Wilson, water show sponsor, and Marilyn Horn. jftt ' (fllaatid [fan flight 16 ' ...

Leaving the Prom for the Loop are Gary Cock¬ rell and Eileen Corr, Diane Petersen (back¬ ground), and Chuck Platt and Kay Eberhardt. The highlight of our evening was the Grand March. Doesn ' t look like the familiar bobby-sox crowd, does it? " Hello, Jane? Guess what? He finally asked me . . . ! " " Gingiss Brothers? I ' d like to rent a summer tux for June 14 " Coketail parties raised the curtain on our big night, and when we arrived at Chevy Chase everyone was there. We were proud of our Prom leaders as they led us in the Grand March. All too soon, Dan Belloc and his men played the final notes of " I ' ll See You In My Dreams " and we were on our way again. In the Loop, we met for a late supper, floor show, and more dancing. Home again for forty winks and up for breakfast parties and a day at the beach . . . swim¬ ming, sunburn, and picnics . . . which brought our Prom to a per¬ fect end. 101 It ' s almost time for that big moment as graduates line up for the commencement proces¬ sional. Waiting anxiously in line, these graduates will soon be taking their places on the stage with their fellow class¬ mates. Realizing that this is the last time they ' ll be together in a long time, graduates wait sol¬ emnly for their diplomas. ' em Oj fliqh School Juife ... Commencement The event that climaxed four years of hard work, fun, and excit ement was graduation. Until the last few months of our senior year, everyone was counting the days. This attitude changed completely, however, during those last days when graduation was becoming a reality. With the arrival of the long-awaited night came tenseness and excitement. As we marched up to the platform, we caught glimpses of our family and friends watching us with pride. Feeling strangely dignified in our blue and white caps and gowns, we accepted the diploma we had looked forward to for so long and shook hands with Dr. Mason. As we glanced around at all our classmates, we knew this would be the last time we ' d all be together as a class. Some of us would be going to college in the fall while others would be continuing summer jobs and taking new positions. Still others would be looking forward to marriage. With mixed emotions we realized our high-school days had come to an end and that we were leaving Niles Township High School to take new and unfamil¬ iar places in our community. One graduate helps another adjust her hat in those excit¬ ing last moments of high- school life. Mr. Clarence Payne hands a diploma to the first graduate in line as Mr. Harold Ohlson calls the name and Dr. Joseph Mason stands ready to extend congratulations. Jjije Begins jJt 3 : 30 ...

Studies are an important part of school life, but long after we ' ve forgotten what happened in 1066, or what x equals, we ' ll remember the hours spent in rewriting yearbook copy; the excitement of opening night for “My Three Angels ' ' ; the last minute rush to complete the decorations for the dances; and the burst of applause for newly inducted members of the National Honor Society. Fifty different organizations provide varied acti¬ vities to suit each of us. Working together, we learn to be creative, to be of service, to take our place as part of a -group, to assume responsibility, and to become leaders. Marilyn Dell, Vince Donile, Mike Sheahan, and Bob Bonebrake plan for a system for honor study halls to be tried in the near future. Responsible for promoting citizenship and activating the Code of Ethics is the citizen¬ ship committee which includes Vince Do¬ nile, Norm Garland, Bruce Debes, and Nancy Keppeler. I , 1 sice Oj Student Ojunisn Did you notice the clean-up campaign or the boys helping to guard traffic on Lincoln Avenue this year? These projects, together with the support of Lee Min Soo, a Korean orphan, and the presentation of a Waukegan talent assembly, originated in the General Assembly of the Student Council. This legislative body, made up of elected representatives from each homeroom, has created committees to promote citizenship, to organize a new student court, and to develop an honor study hall system. This body works on problems affecting the interests of the students and studies democratic procedure. If you have a complaint or a suggestion, why not mention it to your Student Council representative? To provide more time for discussion and the solving of student problems, Student Council, this year, meets twice a week. Student Council president Dave Winchester goes over the notes of a meeting with secretary Nancy Kep¬ peler and vice-president Lenny Mi- resse. The Executive Board, which consists of the officers and an elected repre¬ sentative from each class level, plans the agenda for the meetings. Standing: Darryl Bach, Bill Kuchar, Lenny Miresse, Beth Williamson, and Nancy Keppeler. Seated: Dave Win¬ chester and Kay Crouchley. The idea of a Student Court having been approved, Doug Bonebrake. Norm Garland, Alan Johnson, and Rosemary Nitsche work out a plan for its fulfillment. Nancy Keppeler, Lenny Miresse, Bill Kuchar, and Dave Winchester repre¬ sent Niles at meetings of the Subur¬ ban League Student Advisory Asso¬ ciation which works on such prob¬ lems as improving sportsmanship. Members of the safety committee de¬ veloped a system of traffic guards this year. Seated: Ron Shabel, Rose¬ mary Nitsche, Karen Breitzke, and Bob Schroeder. Standing: Ken Sar- tini and Alan Johnson. For the first time at Nilehi, a stu¬ dent, charged with the violation of a school rule, may tell his side of the story to the new Student Court, made up of representatives from each class. Judges of the court are: Bill Kuchar, Diane Payne, Larry Schildgen, Jill Linn, Harold Neimer, Jim Voight, Dave Brownlee, Miss Lois Lamberg (adviser), and Sue Bastow. Working with the dummy of the 1955 Reflections, editors Barb Dischert and Judy Cole¬ man select pictures for the opening pages. The thought and idea for this year ' s Reflections goes back to March, 1954. At that time the staff of ' 55 was selected and the theme of growth was decided upon to tie the yearbook in with the tremendous expansion of the school. In September under the guidance of the sponsor Mrs. Mary Ida McGuire, the actual production of the book was started. The Yearbook Finance Staff, supervised by Mr. Ronald Van Arsdale, took over our money problems by handling the Magazine Drive, proceeds from which helped to pay for the book. Because of the increasing number of students, the General Staff decided to have a larger book than in previous years. The cover was de¬ signed, student pictures and classroom shots were taken, page makeup was planned, and copy and headlines were written. Each staff member became responsible for a different section of the book. Meanwhile, the Senior Section Staff, under Mrs. Lucille Barnes, took charge of the senior portraits. As the April 1 deadline approached, Room 222 be¬ came filled with feverish activity every 5A period. Copy was re-written and editors " burned the midnight oil " as last-minute copy and pictures were turned in. After spring vacation final page proofs were corrected and work on the book was completed. A long-awaited moment arrived when we caught our first glimpse of the completed book at the Reflections Staff dinner held a few days before the book was released to the students. Janet Piper, copy editor, helps Bob White, sports editor, write a head¬ line for the sports section. Nancy Keppeler and Judy Boles look over yearbooks from other schools to get new ideas.

( Ill lu Tamilian jle JlileUiie Staff The hustle and bustle of a newspaper office is re¬ produced in Room 219 when editors and reporters of the Nilehilite rush to meet their deadlines. The three editors make assignments; then, stories are written, edited, typed, and sent to be linotyped. Pic¬ tures are taken, cutlines are written, and Mr. Wesley and the boys in the print shop are visited and re¬ visited by the editors to check on the progress of the paper. When the final " 30” is written at last, the editors, staff, and Mr. Paul Eberhardt, sponsor, for¬ get the headaches in a feeling of satisfaction that the Nilehilite is finally " put to bed” and will be ready for readers on Friday. The exchange staff is respon¬ sible for sending every issue of the Nilehilite to alumni and to other schools. Getting an issue ready for mailing are Barb McKaig, Barb Kitch, and Linda Morse. Standing: Ellen Greiner and Dave Kraus (ex¬ change editor). Any future Shakespeare, Whitman or Poe to come out of Nilehi will probably have been a member of the Golden Galleon Guild. This creative writing group, sponsored by Mrs. Parepa Rice, publishes a magazine yearly in which the best poems, essays, and short stories of students are printed. These stu¬ dents are then initiated into the Guild in June at a banquet. This year the club has been active in other ways by having a " Padded Cell Party, " a tea for mothers, and a trip downtown to see the English production of " Romeo and Juliet.

Provost, is on hand to cheer on the team and the crowd. Often assisted by the twirlers, whose original routines add much to the show, the band also plays at school assem¬ blies, civic functions, parades, and the annual Spring Concert. In addition to the traditional marches, the band plays a wide range of music from classical to jazz.

Music fills the air around Room 110 and, in early October, when the choral groups begin to practice for Christmas Vespers, strains of " Winter Wonder¬ land " drift into the open windows of study halls to set students dreaming of holidays to come. Steady and conscientious practice of " do re mi fa, " repeated plugging away at various parts, and constant em¬ phasis on strict timing finally result in the never-to- be-forgotten thrill of a beautiful song well done. No student who has ever experienced this will soon forget this feeling of satisfaction. " No music without fun, and no fun without mu¬ sic " is the principle of the music department at Nilehi. At the same time, students and directors strive for the goal of that finished performance which will be acclaimed by the thundering applause of the audience. Besides the presentations of concerts in March, the music department is well known for the elaborate C hristmas Vespers and the May Festival. There is no memory of Christmas more impressive than that of the entire music department, accom¬ panied by the orchestra, singing Handel ' s magnifi¬ cent " Messiah.

" Places everyone . . . Act I. " " Footlights up, houselights down! " " Curtain going up! " Before these final words are spoken, however, a great many hours have been put in. There are sets to be made by the stage crew, costumes and props to be borrowed, bought, or made, make-up to be applied, and above all, weeks of hard work and rehearsal. The fall and spring productions this year were two Broadway hits, ' Goodbye My Fancy " and " My Three Angels. " Besides two major plays, the drama department also presents several one-act plays, puts on skits for pep assemblies, and enter¬ tains at P.T.A. and other club functions. The drama department sponsors two large groups at Nilehi, the Spotlighters and Thespians. A student starts out as a Spotlighter, and when he had earned ten points, the equivalent of one hundred hours of work, he is eligible to become a full-fledged Trespian. From there, he may advance to even high¬ er honors by earning additional points and receiv¬ ing awards for these points. The combination of Miss Stemp ' s fine direction and the hard work of both Spotlighters and Thespians provides continu¬ ally better plays at Nilehi. In " Goodby My Fancy, " one too many cocktails at the fac¬ ulty tea for Professor Birdshaw (Dorothy Dziadula) makes it necessary for Professor Ding- ley (Bob Martin) to carry her out. Looking on, aghast, are Mrs. Griswald (Carol Schwe- ger) and her husband Mr. Gris¬ wald (Dennis Moore), chair¬ man of the school board, and Woody (Janice Jack), Agatha ' s secretary.

Three witches, Nancy Cox, Kathy Krause, and Carol Schweger, are called upon to concoct a brew to boost the spirit of Nilehi before the Homecoming game. Waiting her call to appear is Janice Jack. In 1954 ' s spring play, the " Cur¬ ious Savage, " Mrs. Savage (Barbara Simpson), who has disinherited her selfish family, Samuel (Dennis Moore), Lilly Belle (Joyce Baron), and Titus (Wally Bornemeier), bids a fond farewell to her friends at the Cloisters, Jeffrey (Ron Sha- bel), Hannibal (Bob Schroe¬ der), Fairy May (Dorothy Dziadula), Florence (Helen Schwinn), and Mrs. Paddy (Nancy Cox). 0i y and d 0i y (fads • • Planning the Father-Son Ban¬ quet, held March 14, are sec ¬ ond semester officers.

Niles Hi-Y is more than just a club to its members: it provides a chance at clean fun, athletic competition, and spiritual fellowship to those who belong In the eight years since it was organized under the leadership of Mr. George Roth, Hi-Y has grown in size from the membership of seven to one of over one hundred. Hi-Y is affiliated with the Evanston Y.M.C.A., but a boy does not need to be a member of the " Y " to join. Hi-Y sponsors many annual activities such as the Junior Citizenship Award, won last year by Fred Melberg and Anna Otiepka, and a scholarship for an outstanding senior. The winner last year was Rosemary DiGilio. The club was also instrumental in starting the Homecoming Parade at Niles. Membership is open to any sophomore, junior, or senior boy. 118 Tri-Hi-Y, our junior-senior girls ' club affiliated with the Evanston " Y, " boast a membership of over a hundred in 1954-55. Through the efforts of Tri- Hi-Y ; 68 orphans from St. Hedwig ' s Orphanage were treated to Christmas and Easter parties; " Smile Week " was introduced; and the " Hardly Hop ' an all¬ school dance, was held. Mrs. Rita Gauer became the new sponsor this year. The Frosh-Soph Girls ' Club was organized in September, with Miss Janet Loranger as sponsor, because of the need for a group similar to Tri-Hi-Y on an underclass level. The main objective of the club is to promote social and charitable activities. Planning the program for the next meeting are Tri-Hi-Y offi¬ cers Eleanor Collins (secre¬ tary), Fran Marling (treasurer), Carol Schweger (vice-presi¬ dent), Carol Borchert (presi¬ dent), and Dona Baumann (worship chairman). A toothbrush and teeth with the slogan " Brush ' em Off " is the Homecoming float being constructed by Tri-Hi-Yers Jan¬ et Piper, Joyce Rossman, Con¬ nie Carlson, Carol Callisen, Carol Borchert, Diane Donile. and Joyce DeZutter.

Vi vv i n As parents nearly burst with pride, 48 selected juniors and seniors file onto the stage to receive their certificates, roses, and pins. Holding out their burning candles, they recite the pledge, and are officially made members of the National Honor So¬ ciety—the greatest honor that can come to any high school student. But the ceremony itself is merely a climax to years of hard work, because these stu¬ dents had to be in the upper 20 per cent of their class before they were selected by the faculty on the basis of four points: character, scholarship, leader¬ ship, and service. A short time ago, there was much suspense as to who was going to be selected; now, in unison, they finish the pledge— " To the upholding of these ideals, I now pledge myself, mind and spirit.

" Hold that line! " Varsity cheerleaders Sandy Bruen¬ ing, Jo Ann Lotz, Linda Morse, Caryl Bristol, Janet Piper, and Anna Otiepka wait the outcome of a crucial play during the Morton game. The Nilehi cheerleaders and the newly-organized Pep Club proudly boast that the " spirit yell " fits Niles better than any other school cheer. Through the efforts of these two groups, the enthusiasm of the student body was brought to its all-time high. During the football and basketball seasons, Monday and Wednesday afternoons found the cheerleaders prac¬ ticing after school with Miss Shirlee Wilson, sponsor. After a practice session of polishing new yells and reviewing old ones, a business meeting was held to plan the pep assemblies and take care of the organization ' s business. This year, for the first time at Niles, the cheerleaders worked under a rotating captain system, giving each cheerleader an opportunity to organize the pep assem¬ blies and take care of the cheers at the games. At the annual winter Sports Banquet, the cheerleaders were presented with awards in appreciation of their ef¬ forts in keeping the spirit at Niles at its peak. on to iJictotiy ... “Have you got that spirit? " Among the crowd, mem¬ bers of the Pep Club help the cheerleaders spark the enthusiasm of the spectators.

The offense made more touchdowns than Niles had ever scored before in the Suburban League, and the defense, although occasionally spotty, looked great at times during the season. Under their new coach, Mr. Basrak, Niles teams are building for better records in the future. This year ' s Trojans came closer to matching the scores of opponents, and many teams in the League found this year ' s eleven capable of hard fought games Among the high spots of the year was the game won against Amundsen of the City League and the dubious distinction of finally scoring on New Trier.

Coached by Mr. Sheahan, they ended the season with a record of 7 and 7 in the Suburban League and an all over record of 12 wins and 9 losses. The success of the team was due in no small part to " Buckets " Karnatz who led the Suburban League scorers and set a new league record of 336 points. Karnatz was picked on the Daily News, Herald American, Tribune, and Sun- Times all-star teams of the area. The team needed five men to win as it did, and Dave Winchester, Rog Peterson, Dave Chevrier, Shel Mikkelson, and Jim Elliott gave Niles fans reason to be proud of the whole team during the season. High spots of the year were an upset win over Morton, a third place trophy at the Kankakee Christmas Tournament, and a Regional win over a Proviso quintet which had beaten Niles twice during the regular season.

Overshadowed by a successful varsity season was the very fine work of the junior varsity. With a final record of seven and three, it can be stated that they were plenty good. The win over New Trier after having lost the first time they played was the most exciting point in the year. High scorers were Joel Febel and Ken Walter.

Jim Esbrook, one of Nilehi ' s top wrestlers, is up in the referee ' s position. Jim went down state this year. The story of the varsity wrestling team was a success story this year for the first time. After losing the first three matches, the team visibly improved and near the end of the season won four in a row, the longest winning streak the school ' s team has ever had. The record was eight wins, nine losses, and one tie. The high spots of the year were a tie with a rugged Glenbrook squad, a fine showing against New Trier (even though it was a losing effort), a two point victory over Evanston, the first shutout the team has ever dealt another school, and a very interesting match against the Kentucky School for the Blind. Constant winners were Dale Wright, Laurie Salamon, Lenny Miresse, and Bill Albert. Jim Esbrook placed second in the sectional and wres¬ tled downstate. As most of the team were underclassmen, the chances for a winning squad next year seems good.

Carol Schweger (treasurer), Karen Holmberg (secretary), and Carol Larsen (vice-presi¬ dent), discuss with their presi¬ dent, Bertie Jorgesen, plans for their girls ' Suburban Playday held in February. Our G. A. A., which began in 1939, has grown to be the largest girls ' club in the school under the direction of Miss Helen Heitman, Miss Betty Schmidt, and Miss Shirlee Wilson. Through its many activities, 330 girls learn good sportsmanship, teamwork, and the sport skills. G. A. A. members elect four officers each year: presi¬ dent, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. These girls, with former officers and seniors on the board, read appli¬ cations from girls who wish to become board members. From this information the new board is selected. Each girl then becomes the manager of one sport, assuming leadership in organizing that activity. In addition to sports, the G. A. A. also sponsors three of the year ' s main social events: Mistletoe Magic, the Christ¬ mas dance; Broomstick Bounce, the jean jump; Hawaiian Enchantment, the turnabout. This year two playdays were held at which times girls from selected schools came to the Nilehi gym to enjoy a day of sports. In this way G. A. A. members meet new girls and learn new ideas. G. A. A. board members gather to make final plans before setting to work on their Christmas dance, " Mistletoe Magic. " Back Row: M. Kamin (square dance), K. Kivi- magi (golf), E. Sahs (soccer), B.

A. camp in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin where they join with representatives from schools throughout the state. Here they receive new ideas for the organizing of their club and the improving of activities of¬ fered. Playing together, they make new friends. Bertie Jorgesen and Dona Bau¬ mann, G. A. A. camp representatives, read over the material they saved from camp. Once a week the junior gym leaders, under the direction of Miss Helen Heit- mann, learn the correct way to officiate and to instruct in sport activities in the classroom and after school in the G. A. A. The rule books as studied here are very important. Back Row: L. Thing- gaard, S. Howard, J. Gutowsky, P. Whitesell, B. Duckers, E. Sahs, P. Holms. Front Row: J. Klemmer, B. Rohner, K. Holmberg, D.

The major letter as earned by these girls was worth 150 points. The girls are proud of their accomplishment. Back Row: J. Nelson, K. Holmberg, D. Baumann, S. Jacobsson. Second Row: K. Krause, C.

A. girl must recite the following pledge when she is initiated: " I promise to uphold the ideals of the Girls ' Athletic Association by promoting interest in athletics and the out of doors; by living so that I may be healthy and strong; by making good sportsmanship a constant factor in my conduct. " To achieve these objectives and develop leisure time inter¬ ests a wide range of individual and team sports are offered. After school in the gym in the winter and out on the playfield in the fall and spring—three hundred girls develop skills and increase their knowledge of the rules of basketball, volleyball, soccer, field hockey, dancing, swimming, tumbling, golf, tennis, bowling and horsebackriding. " Fifteen love is the score! " Wendy Racine tries for another as she serves to her oppon¬ ents Pat Czerwonka and Lynn Racine. Tennis, an individual sport, is offered during the fall season. Handstands, flips, and hanging from the par¬ allel bars are routine stunts in tumbling. Barbara-Wolff spots over Betty Farwell as she goes up into a headstand. Phyllis Roubal swings easily from the new ladder. Concentrating on a game of table tennis, Miss Betty J. Schmidt returns a backhand smash to her opponent. The final page in the 1955 Reflections seems to be the appropriate place for acknowledgements to those who helped make this yearbook possible. Our thanks go to Mrs. Mary Ida McGuire who as sponsor guided the staff and contributed to the book itself, to Root Studios of Chicago who did the photography for the book, to the King Co. of Berwyn, Ill., who prepared the dummy and published the book and to the typing classes of Mr. F. Poor and Miss Ada Immel. This year our goal was to make Reflections an ever better year¬ book than it has been in previous years. We wanted to include in it pictures and copy that would tell the story of Nilehi and of the student body and faculty within its walls. This meant many changes and different ideas. This year for the first time we changed the size of our yearbook from 7 3 A " x IOV 2 " to 9 " x 12 " . Naturally when new and diff jnt ideas such as these appear there are bound to be differences of pinion. We know we cannot please everyone, but the staff has striven to create what we think is a yearbook best representing Nilehi. ( fdmwmqements .
