Meanwhile, other students are just beginning their breakfast; they drive to school and have the advan tage of leaving their houses at a later time. 7:05 a.m. Buses arrive at the building, dropping off their passengers. As students open doors to the building, their journey begins through a day at Niles West High School. Students dis¬ perse through the tri-level building and head for their lockers. 7:10 a.m. Noise of lockers being opened and closed awaken many students to the realization that their school day has begun. They are now trav elling throughout the building to meet with friends, eat breakfast, or to find a quiet spot for last-minute studying. 7:15 a.m. Trying to find a parking space become$ more difficult as more and more student dri¬ vers arrive at school. Teachers look over thei : lesson plans, for they too must plan out the day. 1 1 I 7:30 a.m. The previously crowded halls, are sud¬ denly empty for students are now in home¬ room ready to begin their day.

They travel on to various challenges in the classes that they have chosen. Although Academics play a large role in the life of every student, Clubs, Sports, Happen¬ ings and special friendships also add to a student ' s four years at West. The path through Niles West begins as a freshman; unsure of plans, and ends as a senior, well-prepared for the future.

Homework challenges students to work up to their fullest potential. Many sections of the school provide quiet areas for study. The most popular areas are the library, annex, Oakton lobby, resource centers and, of course, study halls. Faculty members are always willing to spend their time and help students with their studies. At times, some of the more popular places to study in are filled to capacity with students. Willing to sacrifice comfort for study time, stu¬ dents must be inventive in finding places where they can get homework done. Nice weather attracts students outdoors to pursue studies and talk with friends. Others become so wrapped up in studying, they fall asleep.

After three-hundred minutes of listening to lectures, note-taking, and tests, the last bell provides an escape out of the classroom atmosphere. For many students, after school means going home and watching t.v., meeting with friends, doing homework or sleeping. The day has been a long one and at home they can enjoy what is left of the afternoon. Work continues, when other students go directly to their jobs. Here studen ts can use some of their skills learned at West and make some money. Various clubs, sports, and organizations keep many students after school ends. Here students meet other students with similar inter¬ ests. Many after school hours are put in by faculty members to assist with a club or coach a team. These activities teach students beyond what classrooms can teach them. Here they learn to work with oth- — ars l to a cc o mp lis h tha i r . ..goals j .L While some would think that after school the building would be empty, it was not. There were many who stayed for the after school action. Everyone had to make choices and " map out " their after school priorities.

He is just one of the many people working to finish the construction. Men At Work Numerous people came to the deserted high school with large machines and big plans, and took control. Sound like a bad script from an old " B " movie? Actually, this reference concerns the many workers who oversaw the renovations at Niles West. Electricians, general contractors, sheet metal workers, bricklayers, painters, window and heating specialists, and special security worked around the clock during the sum¬ mer to complete the construction before the 1984-85 school year commenced. A week after school ended, Goebelt Construction began tear¬ ing down the walls. The pupose of this construction, decreas¬ ing the size and number of the windows of the school, was to conserve money and energy for heating. Construction workers labored all day, often working on the weekends to combat bad weather and other complications. The finishing touches weren ' t completed until the day be¬ fore school started. According to junior Lisa Sandlow, " The hallways and classrooms were in complete chaos. No one be¬ lieved that the construction would be finished by the time school began. " Running up and down the stairs all day can be really exhausting. A custodial attempts to reach the second floor the easy way. Construction Construction 21 22 Seniors Go Hawaiian Sending the Senior Class to Hawaii would be virtually im¬ possible, but bringing Hawaii right to our classrooms and hallways was not. The seniors proved to the whole school that summer was still in their systems in September. Dressed in grass skirts, colorful flowered shirts, bright shorts and plastic leis, they let West " Go Hawaiian " . Not only was the day fun, but it showed spirit and togetherness in the Senior Class. There were many different kinds of Hawaiians to be found around the school: cowboys Hawaiians, red and white faced Hawaiians, pom pon Hawaiians, cheerleader Hawaiians, con¬ servative Hawaiians, and wild-outgoing Hawaiians. No matter what kind of Hawaiian there was, everyone knew he or she was a senior. When the school day of Friday, September 6th, ended, we may have felt our last warm breeze from Hawaii. (Until spring break, of course!) " Aloha " with a smile says senior Debbie Cohen, as she dressed up for the Emptying her locker, senior Lisa Coconato searches through the final pile senior spirit day. books.

Some will join the Armed Forces, others will continue their education in college. Whatever their final decision, " College Night " is held to help students make the best possible choice. College Night began September 19 with an opening ceremony during which two military helicopters landed on Niles West ' s front lawn and the Navy band performed in the courtyard. At 7:30 p.m. College Night officially began. Representatives from 220 colleges were ready to answer questions, to distribute pamphlets discussing both the social and the academic aspects of their col¬ lege, and to supply cards with which stu¬ dents could request applications and addi¬ tional information. For the first time, stu¬ dents with a military career in mind had a chance to talk with spokesmen from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. From outward appearances, this was the most successful College Night ever held at Niles West. According to the police, ap¬ proximately six thousand students and par¬ ents attended. Students also seemed to agree with this concensus. Junior Sunny Park commented, " It gave me a chance to find out about new colleges and receive in¬ formation about them. " Marla Wilner, also a junior, stated, " It allowed me to become familiar with the schools and their require¬ ments. I thought it helped a great deal. " Sampling the guns exhibited by the Army ROTC are seniors Steve Dayan, Bob Kirchens, and junior Mike Kirchens. The Army ROTC is just one of the many civil services represented at College Night. Organizing the signs used to identify colleges at College Night is junior Sandy Huber. Without her assistance and that of other dedicated students, College Night would not have been a success. 24 College Night The representative from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee explains the advantages of the school to junior Donna Eriksson and her mother. Although juniors have yet another year to decide which college they will attend, the night was very in ormative. College Night 25 Hanging up college flags is Mr. Len Winans. As parents and students walk through the cafeteria, they are able to see the flags bearing names of schools. Interested parents and students examine some of the many colleges located in the contest gym. Other schools were represented in various areas of the building. Showing their happiness are sophomores Holly Sobel, Stevhanie Howard, and Devra Resnick. They added their own Hawaiian touch to the mixer. This couple share a slow dance together. There were many styles of dancing used at the mixer. Sophomore Dana Shapiro shows all of her friends that dancing is what she doe best. The Mixer was a success because both freshmen and sophomores showe that they could “boogie. " Freshmen-Sophomore Mixer Although the cafeteria didn ' t have a breaking floor, Joey Czernick, Mike Gersh- bein, and Ben Guy make do with what they have. Both freshmen and sophomores participated in the dancing that night. Mixin ' And Matchin ' Mixin ' and matchin ' took place at the Freshmen-Sophomore Mixer on September 21. The action began at 7:30 p.m. in the Ni-We-Hi cafeteria and courtyard. The mixer provided fresh¬ men and sophomores the opportunity to meet new people, and enjoy an evening of dancing. Music by disc jockey Don Davis played all night long. " Davis got everyone to dance, " said freshman Robert Keller. " It was amazing to see how many people showed up and had a great time, " Keller added. Action was delayed for a few minutes when a fire alarm went off, but dancing resumed immediately as strong as ever. Hawaiian decorations created by the Sophomore Cabinet spruced up the cafeteria for the night. " A lot of us wore Hawai¬ ian attire to go with the theme and create spirit, " said sopho¬ more Stevhanie Howard. Ice cream sundaes were devoured throughout the night of dancing and fun. " I met a lot of new people at the mixe r, and everyone danced together showing the spirit and unity of Niles West, " said freshman Susan Silverman. Record attendance proved the mixer to be popular, and a highlight of the underclassmen ' s calendar. After finishing the last dance, freshman Robyn Horowitz calls home to be picked up. Although some people went home, others went to the football game which was in progress at Basrak Field. Freshmen-Sophomore Mixer 27 Sure, Bart Conner was an excellent gymnast in high school, but who would ever dream about seeing him win the gold?! Coaches and family had faith in Bart, just as he did in himself. After years of training, an elbow operation, and hard determina¬ tion, Bart Conner brought home the gold. On Wednesday, October 10, with television cameras and newsmen in place, Bart came to talk to cheering girls and guys. The band played Olympic songs to welcome him. The " Star Spangled Banner " was sung by Mrs. Owens, the Niles West chorus instructor. As Bart entered the auditorium there were loud chants of " U.S.A.! " In his speech he told the audience about his great struggles and hardships. " You can ' t just assume something is going to happen, you ' ve got to make it happen, " stated Conner. After Bart Conner talked, he asked for questions from the audience. Many people wanted to speak but only a few were selected. The assembly included speeches by John Burkel and Bart ' s Olympic coach. They mentioned that Conner will be starring in episodes of " Love Boat, " " Different Strokes, " and " Highway to Heaven. " To keep all entertained, Conner did a routine flip-flop which was a " crowd- pleaser " . Immediately following the assembly Conner met with selected people who had purchased his t-shirts. After that, he had a press conference with Dr. Ring and many others. When asked what his feelings were about returning to West, Bart answered, " It ' s so great to be back home! " Lucky senior Nicole Goetz receives an autograph from Bart Conner. She is one of the selected few able to do so. Coach John Burkel, one of the speakers at the assem¬ bly and Conner ' s high school coach, says a few things about Bart. Our Coach Burkel played an importanl role in Conner ' s great triumph. 28 Bart Conner Assembly Bart Conner spends time at West signing autographs for his fans. West students are proud of Conner ' s accomplishments. Speaking into the microphone, Conner answers a question from Robert Gersh- bein. Robert questions Bart ' s plans for the future. Besides signing autographs, Conner also poses for many pictures. Sophomore Evelina Stipisic smiles as Bart talks to her about his memories of Niles West. Bart Conner Assembly 29 Homecoming week gives everyone a chance to get into the spirit. Sheriff Puff dresses up on Cowboy and Indian Day. Spirit Soars " Cruisin ' to Victory " was the theme for this year ' s Home¬ coming. The spirited week consisted of five days aboard the luxurious " Niles West Victory Ship " ! On Monday morning, everyone, ready in their nautical clothes, embarked from Skokie at 7:30 a.m. During the day students had " flipper " contests on the promenade deck. They docked in Hawaii Tuesday morning with their grass skirts and leis. The activity for the day was a limbo contest which was also held on the promenade deck mods 11-22. On the third day of the cruise students remained on the ship and gathered in the main hall for a pep assembly. The Home¬ coming court was announced, and the soccer and football teams were introduced. Music played by the band helped to raise the crew ' s spirit. After this, the Varsity Cheerleaders and Pom-Pon girls performed their routines, uplifting everyones ' spirit even more. On Thursday morning the passengers on the victory ship docked in Greece and remained there, wearing their togas all day. They finally finished their voyage Friday morning, as they docked in Skokie at 7:30 a.m. At last they had arrived in Indian territory! They were ready to start the day out with a huge pep assembly where the king and queen were crowned. Immediate¬ ly following the assembly was the Homecoming parade. The week ended with a dance for the passengers held in The Cap¬ tain ' s Ball Room on Saturday night, from 8:00 to 11:00. Showing school spirit is freshman Ross Fischoff. His headress and warpaint transform him into a real Indian chief. Bending under the limbo stick is senior Jackie McDonough.

The assembly began with re¬ presentatives from clubs participating in the spirit panel com¬ petition marching their entries around the gym. Next, the Varsity Cheerleaders raised students 7 spirits with their Home¬ coming routine. They dazzled the crowd with their huge pyra¬ mids and creative cheers.

The student nominees for this year ' s court were: Diana Hellestrae, Anna Karalis, Melo- dee Fillmore, Julie Keller, Jenny Smith, Judd Brody, Bob Kir- chens, Gus Atsaves, Mike Lochner, and Mike Ferdman. The football and soccer teams were then introduced by their soccer captains Dan Gabel and Jim Griletz and football cap¬ tains Carlos Fornaris and Eugene Pullano. The assembly was concluded when the Pom Pon Girls per¬ formed their routine. Their coordination and smiles got the crowd enthused. Finally, they were joined by the Cheerleaders in performing the routine to the school song played by the band. Varsity football captains, seniors Eugene Pullano and Carlos Fornaris laugh at the cheers of their fellow players. They along with senior Joe Klancnik an¬ nounce the entire Varsity Football Team.

As one of the spirit panel contest winners, the Art Council shows off their talent. As always, they created an unusual panel with skillful technique. Carefully building a pyramid, the Varsity Cheerleaders show their strength and balance. It takes hours of practice to perfect a routine and to make mounts so high. Indoor Pep Assembly 33 Afternoon Action Students from all class levels gathered to¬ gether at Basrak Field after school on Friday, October 20th. The purpose? To raise school spirit and have a great time before the Home¬ coming game that evening. A special guest appearance by Channel 7 sportscaster Mike Adamle added a special note of laughter as he joined the ranks and became an Indian fan for the night, applying his red and white war paint as his initiation. Next, football captains Eugene Pulano and Carlos Fornaris both urged the crowd to come and cheer the most unusual Homecoming game ever, with soccer taking the place of the tradi¬ tional football game. The cheerleaders enthu¬ siastically performed their Homecoming cheers, inspiring pride in Niles West.

A parade is nothing without spectators anxiously awaiting the parade to pass by is junior Ian Faloona. Big Red Parades Through Towns Spirit Week ended on a big bang with the Homecoming Parade at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, October 19th. The parade started in the school ' s parking lot and proceeded through the streets of Skokie, Morton Grove, Niles, and Lincolnwood, finally ending up back in the parking lot. Leading the parade were Mike Lochner and Anna Karalis, Homecoming King and Queen, followed by their respective courts and the three winners of the float contest. The floats were judged on neatness, creativity, and theme. This year there was a new addition to the parade, a double decker bus in which the senior Midnight Riders rode. Even though the football game was replaced by a soccer game, everyone was psyched. " I think it ' s going to be really great tonight at the game. I love soccer, and I know this is going to be the start of something big to come, " stated Jenny Lund. The Indians were on the war path, and the parade was just what they needed to add the last little dash of spirit that helped the Niles West Soccer Team in its victory over Notre Dame. The color guard begins to practice for the parade. They, as well as the band, join the parade at Oakton Community College. Homecoming Parade 37 Never Before The whistle blew! Two ambitious and hard-working teams set out to win an important game, the Niles West Homecom¬ ing Soccer Game. Even though the players hadn ' t found out about the game until the previous day, the Niles West Indians were able to defeat the Notre Dame Dons, 2 to 1. S enior Gus Atsaves recalled, " I was scared, but very happy and excited. " Due to unusual circumstances, the Homecoming game was played by soccer players instead of the traditional football team. Adding to the excitement, the Pom-Pon Squad danced to the rhythm of " 5 Foot 2 " , and the Marching Band played during an extended halftime. In addition, the Varsity Cheer¬ leaders raised the spirit of the crowd throughout the game. On the whole, fans apparently didn ' t object to the change in plans, freshman Amy Grimaldi commented, " Watching soccer was an exciting experience, since I rarely had the chance to attend a game. " Mental preparation can make the difference in the outcome of a game. Senior Matt Hedrichs puts total concentration into the Homecoming soccer game. jun- Junior Joe Lochner, leaps for the ball in order to send it back towards the Notre Dame goal.

Socializing, dancing, pic¬ tures, and tons of memories were all a part of the night ' s agenda. No one worried as this special occasion, for the crew had everything under control. Sit back and relax, and now a few words from your captain . . . " Ahoy there, shipmates!! This is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard the Niles West Victory Ship.

Many memories were made at the dance. Homecoming Dance 41 42 Parents Visit Doors opened late this October 24th night not for students, but for parents. This was the time when parents learned about their child ' s progress and saw some of the school classes and activities in progress. Parents walked, ran and got lost going through their child ' s daily schedule (shortened of course). School seemed so easy to parents when they were at home, but the minute they walked through the doors, they acted just like freshmen on the first day of school. Other parents who had been to Open House before took on the role of the " SURE SENIOR " . These parent- Ni We Hi experts made it to all of their child ' s classes on time. Other parents lost in the hallways arrived to classes tardy after getting instructions from the cheerleaders who were the " guides for the evening " . Some parents ended up very lost and did not make it to class at all. " Open House was a success, " according to Publications Teacher Jerome Orr, " I had all of my classes packed with interested and caring parents. " Although the school and hallways may have been a little different, parents discovered that school, teachers and classes never change. Health teacher George Galla talks to an interested parent Bonnie Tadelman about the health course. Parents were given the opportunity to ask questions in each of their child ' s classes. Showing her flexibility, freshman Stephanie Pritsker stretches before dancing. Members of Orchesis were present in the gym, to dance for parents at Open .House. Leaders ' gym members practice some wrestling holds at Open House. Many other activities were performed for parents to view. Open House Coach Campbell and juniors Rocky Lee, Marsha Telengater, and Borpit Intawiwat represent cross country and track teams at Open House. Many other sports teams have their awards on hand. As these mothers exit, Mr. Miron thanks them for coming to his class. With the shortened class periods, teachers get to talk to parents of their students. Open House 43 M and M s melt in your mouth not in your hands. Just ask the M and M sisters seniors Marla Friedman and Debbie Frakas if it ' s true. Senior Carolyn Prinz carries her detached head down the hall. Her costume was by far one of the spookiest. " Would you like to buy some girl scout cookies?

Her fan and kimono make her look au thentic. 44 Halloween Haunted Halls All dressed up and no where to go. Fooling us all is senior Harry Anderson. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. For these two beauties, the situation seems hopeless. Halloween came in a flurry of orange and black crepe paper that decorated the cafeteria and halls on Wednesday, October 31. Halloween spirit was apparent throughout the student body on this day of pumpkins, witches, goblins and ghosts. Originality and creativity went hand-in-hand as both stu¬ dents and teachers dressed according to this goulish day. " I had a lot of fun dressing up as a flasher and I had a even better time flashing people ' stated senior Bob Kirchens. Along with many other seniors, he helped to spread the spirit of Hallow¬ een. A few participants who dressed up included Pom Pon girls Mike Ferdman and Dean Mazetta, " Gumby " Alavana Decker and Mike Durso, " Mr. T " Rob Munic, Thriller woman Nikki Rich, headless person Carolyn Prinz, Indiana Jones Robert Gershbein and " Tom Cruise " Kerstin Hagg and Howard Ma- litz. Teachers who dressed up included James Sweeney and Marjorie Stevens who dressed as a monster and a cat respec¬ tively. Halloween continued after school and into the night, as most people grabbed their shaving cream cans and went " bombing " . Of course, trick-or-treating was still effective if you had the right costume. All remembered, that the Great Pumpkin was waiting with the other pumpkins in the great pumpkin patch. He was waiting to be taken home and carved for decoration. It is “strictly business " for freshman Paul Katz. Halloween brings out many “shady " characters. Halloween Representing the Libertarian party with Steve Givot, Jimmy Walker signs auto graphs For some of his fans. He is given the chance to voice his opinions for the election. Banners and signs hang on the stage curtain to inform everyone who Steve Givot is. He is in favor of a Libertarian society. Political Views On Monday, October 29, Steve Givot, Libertarian candidate for U.S. senator from Illinois, came to speak at the Niles West auditorium. Mr. Givot outlined his party ' s views, including its main stance on less government involvement in personal life. He also stressed the importance of alternative political parties, and said he felt his party was a needed alternative to the other political parties. Appearing with Mr. Givot was Jimmy " JJ " Walker, star of the T.V. show " GOOD TIMES " . Jimmy, who was warmly received, gave his own corresponding views about the Libertarians, also stressing the importance of alternative political parties. Mr. Lorenz, the director of social studies and fine arts, helped get in touch with Steve Givot, and enthusiastic about having him speak. However, he was disappointed that during an election year more politicians weren ' t available. " It is very educational to see the aspects of politics when politicians speak, and more education is needed to get more people to vote. Having speakers here is very important because students rare¬ ly are able to have discussions in class regarding current events, " explained Mr. Lorenz. Mr. Lorenz added that the school had made offers to most major political candidates, both national and local, to come speak. Mr. McMahon, English teacher and sponsor of the Current Events Club who spon¬ sored the event, thought it was advantageous for students to see and question politicians whenever possible, and had hoped to have the Democratic and Republican candidates along with the Libertarians. Mr. McMahon noted that while only 200 to 300 people were expected, approximately 700 attended. This was an encouraging sign to the Current Events Club to spon¬ sor more political events in the future. Almost all of the students who attended appreciated Mr. Givot coming to speak. Sophomore Dale Sherman said, " Steve Givot made a lot of sense to me. He came across firmly with his ideas. I agree with his view that government should stay out of people ' s personal lives. Personally, I ' d like to see more politi¬ cians speak at Niles West. I really got a lot out of the open forum. " Not all students, however, concurred with Mr. Givot ' s views. " Although I don ' t agree with many of his ideas ' said sophomore Tom Abelson, " I enjoyed being able to hear what he had to say, and also to see someone campaigning. " Candidate for the U.S. Senate, Steve Givot tells about his philosophy of govern¬ ment. After he finishes, Givot opens the floor to questions from interested stu¬ dents. 46 Liberatarian Speaker Passing out pamphlets about the Great American Smokeout are freshman Gary Kaufman and sophomores Rachel Oliker and Suzanne Davis. They receive cigarettes from students and faculty who stop smoking for the day and hopefully the future. " Smoking is very glamorous. " This poster is just one of the many around the school. Kicking The Habit Fumar, fumer, and rauchen all mean the same thing in three different languages; to smoke. Many factors can drive a person to smoke. When kids are young, they may see parents smok¬ ing, therefore assuming that it is all right for them to try. Another reason is when a person tries to imitate an idol or a more " worldly " person that smokes. The most influencing factor of smoking is peer pressure. Kids that start smoking in their teens often carry the habit into their adulthood. Once a person has entered a practice that is detrimental to his health, it is very hard to kick the habit. Students and faculty joined the nation-wide effort to kick the habit on Thursday, November 15. This meant that for one whole day, all smoking was to cease among smokers who chose to partici¬ pate. The Great American Smokeout brought in the idea, " take a day off ..Not smoking for one day did not necessarily guarantee that a person would stop smoking forever. Quitting takes patience and willpower. Students and faculty also helped by " adopting smokers. " Adoption meant they would help their friends quit. Remember: Life is sweet, smoking stinks. Laurie Adams ' 86 To inform the students about the dangerous effects of smoking is the purpose of these pamphlets. Many schools nation-wide helped participate in the smoke-out. Smoke Out 47 New theater owner Rob Alpern explains to janitor Howard Malitz his reasons for changing the theater into a parking lot. Being the bad guy isn ' t always easy. Actors Steer In Right Direction The air was electric, as the audience waited for the curtain to rise signifying the opening of " No Parking on the Stage Floor. " " This was the best Pow Wow in years, from the nostal¬ gic opening number ' the Charleston ' to the show stopper ' Celebration ' ' said senior Jackie Sirajullan. " No Parking on the Stage Floor " was about a man Adam Randall, who inherited a theater that was not doing well. Mr. Randall decided to tear the theater down and build a multi¬ story parking lot, against the wishes of others who worked for the theater. Pleasant surprises were added to the stage with seniors Rob Alpern playing Adam Randall and Howard Malitz playing the janitor. Both seniors had their first stage exper¬ iences with this show. Another senior Melissa Lewin played the part of Alice, the zany lady at the ticket booth. The show featured an evolution of music throughout the century. From the 20 ' s there were flappers and from the 60 ' s there were flower children. Musical numbers from the show included: " I Wanna Be Loved by You " sung by sophomore Rebecca Kolber, " Minnie the Moocher " sung by junior Paul Bouboutsis and the heart warming melody, " Send in the Clowns " rendered by senior Julie Moltz. A Special guest per¬ formance in the show was the " Original Thoughts " , a school band. Work paid off for the show ' s directors seniors Stefanie Akwa and Andy Lawler. With so talented a cast, the stage floor also became a dance floor. Steve Blonder and " his girls " act out one of the memories in the old theater. Many performances took place in this theater about to become a parking lot. 48 No Parking On The Stage Floor Amazed by Julie Moltz ' s reaction is Paul Bouboutsis. Paul plays a charming entertainer who unsuccessfully makes passes at every girl in the show. Publicity shots are an important asset for any show. Here, freshman Ann Fisher and senior Lionel Go help promote the student production. No Parking On The Stage Floor 49 “Breaking away " from the crowd, freshman Aurelit Mercado shows off his stuff. Aurelit gets ready for the break dance contest. “Let ' s tango! " says freshman Lena Quilisi to freshman Mary Trenton. All styles of dancing were evident at the Bash. Tunes of the 80 ' s provide dancing music for sophomores Evelyn Winandi and Adam Mizock. The First Friday Night Bash provided fun and frolic for all in attendance. « Best of friends, freshmen Robert Keller and Alexis Hershenhorn boogie down The Bash was the perfect place to get together with friends and have fun. 50 Friday Night Bash Showing everyone how it ' s done are seniors Judd Brody and Julie Huber. When friends weren ' t dancing they were able to enjoy the refreshments offered at the dance. Friday Night Ba sh — A Smash Do you ever have problems deciding where to go to on a Friday night? Is the Riviera too hard to get to? Do you find it hard to get into singles ' bars? Are Broadway musicals out of your price range? Student Union found the perfect solution to all of these dilemas, The First Friday Night Bash. The bash, a first for Niles West, provided an entertaining time for all who were able to attend. However, only 350 students were lucky enough to join in the festivities due to lack of space in the cafeteria. The reduced number did not inhibit students from buying tickets, as shown when all 350 tickets were sold out in less than two days. A definite record for the books! " Dance Experience " provided the music for this event. The disc jockey played an even mix of music, ranging from the music of the 60 ' s and " Animal House " to the music of today. Refreshments were served, allowing students to " cool off " before heading back to the dance floor. The evening culminated with a raffle of gift certificates from Lou Malnati ' s, Baskin Robbins, Dino ' s, Bones, and some chocolate records. Button numbers were called off, and the lucky winner received prizes. " The First Friday Night Bash was a great success, " stated senior Nikki Rich adding, " I was glad to be one of the lucky 350 that got to attend. " The enthusiasm shown by the students prompted Student Union to organize another bash. Student Union has definitely provided a cure for the " Friday Night Blues. " Trying to start a new dance is junior Joe Lochner. He is leading his friends on top of senior Jack Dahm ' s shoulders.

Pooh, junior Howard Tiersky. Eeyore is known for always being unhappy. out of the tree. Pooh will do anything when he smells the honey. Winnie Wins Applause A.A. Millne ' s stories of Winnie the Pooh has delighted children all over the world for many years. Over 3000 elementary and pre¬ school students came to see the Children ' s Theater production, Winnie the Pooh come to life. Pooh came to life — from eating jars full of honey to swinging from balloons, the kids loved him, and the other animals as well. Among the forest friends, Winnie the Pooh, the honey-hungry teddy bear was played by junior Howard Tiersky, Pooh ' s best friend, the mud splattered Piglet, was played by senior Melissa Lewin, and Kanga, the animal feared for soap, brush, and bath¬ tub, especially by Piglet, was played by freshman Ann Fisher. Not only were the children able to see the adorable animals on stage, they also gathered in the cafeteria after the closing show to celebrate Pooh ' s birthday. There they received balloons, birthday cake and even autographs. Whether it was the great performances or the adorable costumes, the kids loved it. A first bath is given to Winnie the Pooh, junior Howard Tiersky, by Kanga, freshman Ann Fisher. Winnie sacrifices his cleanliness for the dirtiness of piglet. 52 Winnie The Pooh As the forest animals blow out the candle on Winnie the Pooh ' s birthday cake Christopher Robbins, junio r Andy Mills, holds the cake still.

Winnie The Pooh 53 Tis ' the season to be jolly, fa la la la la la la la la. The holidays brought cheer to school and the community. As early De¬ cember arrived, plans began for this festive time. Senior Class Cabinet traveled to the Hull House in Chicago, to share the holidays with needy children. Like elves, seniors brought refreshments and presents to the party they planned for the kids. Pin the nose on Rudolph, Duck Duck Goose, Musical Chairs and a Christmas story made the children smile. A big-brother, big-sister relationship formed as the celebration went on and the seniors and children became newfound friends. As Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman were sung, a special harmony was seen and heard. The holiday season is a time to share with others, and the Cabinet through the party, made the children ' s Christmas a brighter one. Concert in the cafeteria described the scene before home¬ room on Friday, December 21. This last day of school before winter break carried the holiday mood. A group of staff mem¬ bers performed holiday carols for the students and also at the faculty holiday party given by Principal Dr. Don Ring and his wife, Sonya. Shari Owens, the new choral director, was respon¬ sible for putting together the choir that consisted of members such as; Dr. Don Ring - principal, Bill Handzel - A.V.E., David Lee - social worker, Barbara Handler - counselor and Len Winans - counselor. Along with the music side of the holidays, members of the band marched through the halls with their instruments and played holiday songs. The sound throughout the school was one of joy and excitement for the two weeks that were about to begin. For some the weeks would include holiday parties, sleeping late, going skiing or perhaps to a warmer climate to get the " savage tan " . Some classes took the last day of school to have a party, like the Chanukah party in Alex Miron ' s Hebrew class, while oth¬ ers would remember the last day before break as a time to get in those last few chapters in a book or take a chapter test. Pat Flynn received a nice Christmas gift from his 2-4 College Prep, class- a singing telegram from Mrs. Santa Claus! Stu¬ dents got into the Christmas spirit by wearing Santa Claus caps, but they weren ' t the only ones, for Dean Erickson and Anne Bohl were spotted wearing the red caps too! 54 Holidays “Surprise!!, " shouts Pat Flynn ' s 2-4 College Prep, class.

Holidays 55 It takes a special know-how to be a host. Jim Puff shows his special know-how as he portrays Chuck Barris of the Gong Show. Going Going Gonged After a long five-year rest, the Gong Show returned and with spectacular results. Over 400 students, parents, and teachers came out in sub-zero temperatures to see the hidden talent. And talent they did see. Unfortunately the theater department was unable to get a hold of Chuck Beris for the occassion, however, they were able to get the next best thing James Puff, head of security, as master of ceremonies. Along with James Puff were the three judges: Donald Ring, principal, Dr. Roger Stein, Spanish teacher, and Sheri Owens, vocal director. The judges based their scores on originality, stage presence, and audience appre¬ ciation. If there were none of these qualities they were gonged! There was a great variety of acts, from cheerleaders jumping around, to sophomores having pillow fights. Among the acts that were not gonged were the three winning acts. The first place act was the Bag Ladies, a group of four girls dressed in bags from head to knees dancing. The " ladies " were juniors Andrea Poet, Ingrid Helgeson, Judy DeAcetis, and sophomore Kathy Campbell. The second place winners were the Summer Daffodils bringing some warmth to the stage with their rendition of Ba-ber ran. This was sung by seniors Moses Nang and back-ups by Angelo Costas, Ho Youl Chang, Ken Wexler, and juniors Mark Pooios, and Al Matan. Arthur Tiersky got the crowd going with his own hit Will it Rain or Will it Snow? He received third place. Judge Donald Ring commented that ' The big boys in tu-tus was probably the best act, but I was confused if the message of the finale was truth or beauty. Overall the show was tremen¬ dous, I hope we do it again next year. " 5c Gong Show With their version of Barbara Ann, members of the soccer team clinch second place in the Gong Show.

Camilli came back to West to choreograph the spring musical, “Joseph " . “Joseph " Reaches Amazing Heights The Theater Department performed one of its best shows ever. The musical was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The show recalls the biblical story of Joseph, Ja¬ cob ' s son. Joseph is endowed with a special power to interpret dreams. This power takes Joseph right up next to the King; The Pharoh. Junior Paul Bouboustis played Joseph and senior Andy Lawler was the Pharoh. The role of the Narrator, who recounts the whole story to the audience, was split three ways by seniors Nikki Rich, Julie Moltz, and Kathy Feingold. The role of Potiphar was played by senior Colin Lawler and senior Steffi Akwa portrayed his wife, Mrs. Potiphar. Lots of hard work went into the show. Rehearsals began even before Christmas Break. The crew and costumers worked just as hard as the cast. The set was designed by Lee Goldberg and Cynthia Philbin. Rita Stewart was a helping hand in preparing Joseph ' s " amazing technicolor dreamcoat " There were two matinees instead of the usual one. There was one for senior citizens and one for junior high students. The show opened Thursday evening at 8:15 p.m., March 21st and ran through March 23rd. The show was directed by the theater teacher Robert John¬ son, with sophomore Rebecca Kolber assisting him. The vocals were done by Sheri Owens, the new Choral Director, and the choreography was done by alumna Gloria Camilli. The cast and crew worked hard to sell ads for the program for a very special reason. This production received a very prestigious invitation — to perform at the International The¬ ater Conference in June at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. To perform there is the " ultimate honor " in high school theater. Freshman Dawn Szabo concluded, " Joseph has gone very well. All the people involved are hard workers and the finished project should be spectacular. " Joseph Musical 59 During finals the library is open for quiet study. Trying hard to stay awake is junior David Jutoresky. Taking a quick nap is junior Matt Mita. Many students find it hard to keep an attention span when studying. Knocked out from finals ' studies, senior Don Gelfund takes a break — sometimes the finals ' pressure can be just too much. 60 Finals Making good use of our school s computer system is junior Alayna Decker. There are many programs which may become very useful when studying for finals. Given some extra time for reviewing, senior Dana Rugendorf prepares for her Biology final. Finally finding a quiet place to study, juniors Lynn Sonkin and Lisa Vick begin to review. Passing U.S. History is very important to juniors. Semester Tester Every eighteen weeks, twice a year, eight times in high school, students are faced with finals. For many students, finals brought loads of studying, late nighters, trips to the library, lots of pop or coffee and nervousness. Perhaps the preparation for finals may seem a bit overboard, but when one-fourth of your semester grade is decided in an hour, it can be quite strenuous. First semester finals began Tuesday, January 29 and lasted until Thursday, January 31. Each final lasted one hour with passing periods in between. Finals were a new experience for freshmen. The Class of ' 88 took their first set of finals without previous experience and set out to ask all of the upperclassmen about what they should study for. For some students, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday they found multiple choice, essay, written or oral finals. Usually they knew what to expect, but even if they did, the tension of walking into a final was amazing. No talking or movement occurred in a final ' s room, for students feared they would lose their concentra¬ tion. After nights and nights of hard work, the students definitely deserved a break. Therefore, Friday was a day off between semes¬ ters. On this day students, slept and had fun to catch up on after the long hours they put in studying. Many ways were found to study for exams. In order to prepare for exams . . . " I just look things over. " Junior Alana Dubin " I don ' t study. " Junior Dan Herman " I start studying ahead of time, so I don ' t have to do it all in one night. " Junior Jodi Nock " I actually sit down and study my notes and study guides. " Senior Sugra Yaybulak " I study with a friend. " Senior Bob Gaughrin " I study with smart kids from my Senior Lou Mitchell ' Senior Mike Dreier Senior Lauri Balbirer Senior Ron Clark Sophomore Michael La- Croix Sophomore Dino San- torineos " I study an hour before each exam. " Sophomore Jim Torrez No matter what the study technique, students either hit the books or don ' t study at all. There are many techniques, some successful and some not so successful. classes. " I don ' t prepare for finals, I am a senior. " I cram. " " I get plenty of sleep. " " I don ' t study. " " I study very hard. " Finals 61 No More Work - It ' s A Celebration “No More Work " , " Party Train " and " Celebration " , were three tunes that set the mood for this BASH. After long hours of studying and three days of tests, students were in need of a way to celebrate the end of finals. Not only did this event recognize the conclusion of finals, it also was a party for the second semester seniors. Finals were over and the three day weekend was here, the contest gym ' s lights were dimmed and its floor was ready for dancing. Thursday night played host to the AFTER-FINALS BASH that drew 500 students for dancing, refreshments and a lot of fun. Student Union sponsored the dance with records spun by Skokie disc jockey Carey Weiman. For a mere $2.00, students could partake in the fun. After three days the bash was sold out. Bash committee members were junior Jenni Holt, seniors Frank Epstein and Tony Sherman and sophomore Devra Res¬ nick. The After-Finals Bash was a success according to junior Debbie Freed who said, " It was a place for everyone to celebrate the end of finals and the beginning of a great weekend. " Contests were in number with a 50 ' s dance contest to songs like " Barbara Ann " and also everyone got down for the twist contest. Some students even pretended to be on the islands, by participating in a hulahoop contest. Students found out that they could boogie at the bash bash, boogie at the bash! All 500 knew how to celebrate good times! Above left- Testing the sound system is Cary Weiman. He is the disc jockey of his own entertainment business, " Dance Experience. " Above- " Let ' s have everyone on the dance floor! " said the DJ. Sophomores Mary Liapis, Tom Choe, and Sue Vargas are following his orders exactly by " hitting the dance floor.

With the " island look " of shades and shirt, Quilici is ready to boogie at the bash. As " Jam on it " plays, seniors Catherine Kim and Tony Sherman set the night on fire at the Bash. Now with second semester for the seniors, there is a reason to celebrate. Making use of the dance floor is senior Fariba Namin. There was plenty of room for dancing in the contest gym. A celebration is what freshmen Ami Grimaldi, Abby Starr, and Christy Roberts are enjoying. Their first feeling of final exams has come and gone. After-Finals Bash 63 Skywalkers II Rule The Court " It ' s fun because I ' m good, " stated junior Phil Rodgers, member of the Seamen Team during the N-Club Volleyball Tournament held in the Contest and North-South Gyms. The tournament was held on Wednesday, February 20. The volley¬ ball tournament was planned and coordinated by the N-Club. As Senior Tony Hehn said, " It ' s the best thing the N-Club has done for the school. " Twelve teams competed at the tourna¬ ment. These teams were formed individually by students with three to seven players on a team. The teams ' names were thought up by the creative members on the team. Some were: Silver Spoons, Slim Trim and Jordan, Party Animals, Purple Pegasus, Knards, Dead Heads, Toe Gobblers, Cheerleaders, All the President ' s Men, Crafty Beaver Hunters, Magnificent Sev¬ en, Ham ' s Porkchops, Hawaiian Swans, The Seamen, The Gyno ' s and Skywalkers 2. " There is no beating us, " Hawaiian Swan ' s Lou Mitchell said, " If we can ' t take first in the Gong Show, we are sure gonna do it here. " The team ' s played fifteen point games, or if after fifteen minutes neither team had fifteen points, the team with the higher score was the winner. The tournament was played with double elimination. " It ' s a war out there, the girls are just too tough. " stated senior Ron Fortman. At the end of the night the championship game was held between the two remaining teams. These teams were the Crafty Beaver Hunters and the Skywalkers II. After a very tough game the Skywalkers II took first place. Ready to “spike back " senior Lou Atsaves jumps a few inches higher than his opponent. What a dunk it would have made! Teamwork is what make Skywalkers II the champions. Seniors Jack Dahm, Carlos Fornaris, and Lou Atsaves struggle to return the serve. Mickey may be the leader of the Mouse Club, but junior Robby Munic and his team sure didn ' t play like mice. Here Munic executes a side arm serve. N-Club Volleyball Tournament Most games resulted in a battle for every last point. Waiting for the ball to come back down senior Mark Sobczak and junior David Young battle for the final points. Power is evident in the overhand serve of junior Cynthia Papoutsakis. Eye contact and intensity create the perfect serve for Cynthia. Hawaiian shirt, black dress socks, and bandana show the individuality of senior Carlos Fornaris team The Skywalkers II " . Fornaris hopes to get on a roll and serve fifteen points in a row. N-Club Volleyball Tournament 65 66 Retirees Ready For Rest And Relaxation Three-point turns, angle parking, parallel parking and the rules of the road have been taught to students by Driver ' s education teacher James Kettleborough. Through Kettleborough ' s teaching students have been well pre¬ pared to take their driver ' s test and hit the roads and expressways. Kettleborough has been teaching since 1953 and will retire after 84-85 school year. Kettleborough attended the University of Illinois and received his business degree. Freshman Football has been one of the many activities Kettleborough has been involved in over the years. As for the future, Kettleborough will be enjoying the sun. “I hope to move to Florida for the winter, and spend my summer in Mendota, Illinois, " bragged Kettlebor¬ ough. Among the many retiring teachers is Dr. George Bauer, or " Coach " as he is known to many students. He has taught at Niles Township for the last 28 years. Education has brought Bauer many degrees. Starting at Southern Illinois University he received his Bachelors of Science degree, Master of education at the University of Illinois and his PHD. from the University of Indiana. Besides being a Physical Education teacher, Bauer coached Varsity Base¬ ball (Niles North), Freshman Baseball and Basketball (Niles West), Fresh¬ man Football (West and North), Sophomore Football (West) and was the Director of Intramurals. According to Bauer, " Niles Township has only changed over the years in respect to keeping pace with our society. There remains a firm commitment to educational excellence. " Bauer described being a part of the " Niles Township experience " as commitment, exciting and rewarding. Bauer ' s plans for the future include moving to a warmer climate and possibly teaching part-time at the university level. Busy, busy, busy is Richard Antes, Director of English and Foreign Language. Besides Administrative duties, Antes is in charge of overlooking the West Work and Specturm publica¬ tions and Senior Class Cabinet. " I have never regretted going into education, " said Richard Antes, Director of English and Foreign Language. Antes retires in June after being involved at West for t he last 23 years. The University of Wisconsin at Madison was where Antes got his Bachelors and Masters degrees. In the past, Antes has taught English, was a department chair¬ man and taught Advanced Place¬ ment Engish class. For the past 14 years. Antes has been an Admin¬ istrator. Antes outlined the changes at school over the years saying, " From a well run school until the late 60 ' s and early 70 ' s when it was chaotic, to the present status - an excellent, international school where there are so many different cultures, everyone can learn something. " Antes described his " Niles Township experience " as involved, challenged and en¬ riched. After so many years, Antes has had many memorable expeir- ences. One of his most memora¬ ble was taking the first theater production to the International Thespian Conference in Muncie, Indiana. Retirees Antes, Bauer, Kettleborough Rollie Korol began her teaching career at Oak Park Elementary from 1949 - 1954, after finishing her graduate education at the University of Illinois and Northern Illinois University. Korol began her career at Niles East from 1961 - 1980, before coming to Niles West. Not only was Korol the speech therapist, she also took part in extra¬ curricular activities as the Medical Careers Club sponsor. One of the experiences Korol would never forget was when she " sat in the Board room during the 1976 teachers ' strike and listened to my name being read as one of the 267 teachers that were fired.” Korol added, " That was memorable, but so was being re-hired.” Korol found changes at Niles over the years, as " When I started discipline, attendance and dress were all very strict and controlled. (If a boy was wearing a belt, he was sent home for the day.) Korol added, " I see the 80 ' s a return to rules, discipline and attendance tempered with some lessons that were learned from previous years.” For the past 28 years, Ralph Wiedl has been teaching at Niles West. Wiedl went to Loyola University where he received his Bachelor of Science and Masters degrees. As a math teacher, Wiedl has had many memorable experiences. One of his most memorable was teaching Geometry in the printshop at Niles East in 1957. One of the changes Wiedl commented on at Niles Town¬ ship over the years was, " The blackboards are now white! " Besides being a teacher, Wiedl was the National Honor Society sponsor and the Math Contest Coordinator for the annual mathematics contest. Spirit, enthusiasm and " GO BIG RED " , come to mind when speaking of Nick Odlivak, better known as " Coach O " . Assemblies were full of pep and excite¬ ment during Homecoming and others with " Coach O " leading the students in the direction of school spirit. If anyone was " loyal to Niles West and gave ' em his best " Odlivak was the one. After working at Niles Township for 30 years, Odli¬ vak retires in June ' 85. After receiving his education from the University of Kentucky, Odlivak taught at DuPont Manuel High in Louisville, Kentucky. Athletics are a favorite of Odlivak ' s ana besides teaching Physical Education, he has coached football, baseball, basketball, swimming, softball and track. Odlivak ' s most memorable experience was at Niles East, when the baseball team took third in state in 1968. Particularly special to Odlivak was the student spirit at the pep assemblies in ' 83 and ' 84. Guidance is what counselor and coach Harry Sortal has given to Niles Townships stu¬ dents since 1956. Whether it was coaching the basketball team to victory or helping stu¬ dents decide on courses to take, Sortal could be found do¬ ing it. After 29 years of service to Niles, Sortal retires in June. Sortal attended St. Louis University where he received his Bachelor ' s Degree and Northwestern University where he received his Masters Degree. Besides being a counselor, Sortal has been a Physical Education and Health teacher and also a basketball and foot¬ ball coach. Sortal ' s memorable exper¬ iences go back to his coaching, • when he had some " pretty good teams. " The most memorable would have to be when one of my teams - won third place in the Michigan-State Basketball Tournament, " said Sortal. Sortal concluded, " My relationships with students and staff have always been good. These relationships have made it very pleasant to work here! " Retirees Korol, Odlivak, Sortal and Wiedl 67 More Retire Keeping track of the bills, receipts and accounts for 17 years is bookkeeper Dorothy Groth. All of the bills and pur¬ chase orders travel through the main office each day. Everything is kept up-to- date with Dorothy Groth as the bookkeeper. Since Oc¬ tober 14, 1968, Gorth has been working in the main of¬ fice. At the be¬ ginning of her employ¬ ment, Groth said that she did not plan on staying as long as she did. " I have enjoyed West while I have been here, " Groth said adding, " I like what I am doing and the people I work with. " As for her future plans, Groth said, " I have nothing planned at the moment, but I do plan on keeping busy. " Groth added that she will miss the students, co¬ workers and her 17-year job. Groth concluded, " There has never been a dull moment! " Make-up social studies test, reading world news in maga¬ zines and just studying before tests goes on in the Social Studies Resource Center. Whenever students need help finding a test or an article, Lydia Hinz, the secretary takes care of them. After 15 years Hinz retires in June. After retirement Hinz plans to rest, travel and maybe work a little. Need a pencil? Run out of typing paper? Forget your protractor at home? Is Romeo and Juliet due tomorrow and you have not bought the book? For these supplies and more, take a trip to the school bookstore. Among the supplies, text books and workbooks stands Gertrude Natker, better known as the " Bookstore Lady " . After 16 years at Niles Township, Natker retires in June. Natker began the challenging job in 1969 at Niles East. One of the biggest changes over the years Natker said was in the students. " The students are much quieter now. When I started work they were still demonstrating against the draft and various other things. " Good morning, Niles West! That familiar cheery voice heard when one calls school is of Rose Blum. As switchboard operator, Blum transfers calls to the many areas of the school. Whether it is a parent calling a teacher, or companies calling administrators, Mrs. Blum ' s friendly voice sends calls directly to their of¬ fices. After 15 years of operating the switchboard, Blum retires in June. Over the years there have been changes in the switchboard operation and location. Blum commented, " It used to be a little hectic with two girls running the switchboard for four buildings. " After retiring, Blum plans to just do things that she has not had time for. One of Blum ' s most rewarding experiences was training students in the business education depart¬ ment on the switchboard. Retirees Blum, Groth, Hinz and Natker Although the new blinds have not been installed on these second and third floor windows, the windows added a " modern " appearance to the school. Besides blinds and windows, the outside bushes and trees were changed. Ch Ch Ch Changes Above- Lines were long at the two Pepsi machines, but students did not mind the wait. The saying around school was, " No Coke, Pepsi " . This electrical message board is a new " flashy " extra in the cafeteria that informs students and faculty of events and Birthdays. Students and faculty now receive information in a new light. 4k PEPSI Two pepsi machines arrived - crowds gathered to buy cans of Sunkist, 7-UP, Dr. Pepper and Diet Pepsi during lunch, free and snack times. No more syruppy or watery juices, now it was time for cans of favorite soft drinks to take over the cafeteria. Upon arrival, students jumped at the chance to " POP " 454 into the new machines and receive a can of Pepsi. No longer were trips to 7 - Eleven or sneaking into the teacher ' s lounge necessary- Now when stu¬ dents wanted a can of pop they had their " own machines " to buy it from, just a few steps out of the cafeteria. As with any change, at first there were a few problems. " It is kind of an experiment to see if kids can keep the building clean and enjoy the pop, " said Principal Dr. Don Ring. Information availability is an important need of students. Besides the " Daily Bulletin, P.A., and Poster " came a " flashy sign in the cafeteria. " All day long messages ran from an¬ nouncements of a turnabout d ance to the " CHESS TEAM WINS " and a new addition, " THE DAILY HAPPY BIRTH¬ DAY!!!! " Every day students ' an teachers ' names flashed across the board with messages of Hap¬ py Birthday. Now students had another means of communica¬ tion. " GET the MESSAGE " ????? Blinded by the light? New blinds and windows were or¬ dered to add to the school ' s ap¬ pearance. Times changed, people changes and West changed. In just one year there were many CH CH CH CHANGES! CH CH CH CHANGES 69 Team Spirit Benefits Double session practices, chalk talks, practice with the sophomores, five cor¬ ners with " no guts, no glory, " including a little sweat and pain, and there was the Varsity Football Team. At 2:25, school was out and it was time for practice. Everybody was ready by 2:45 for either a chalk talk or a pre-prac¬ tice stretching and agility warmup, fol¬ lowed by a half hour or so of specialties (kicking game, punting, punt return) and an hour of team offense and defense practice. By then every player was pretty tired, but still ready to go and still suck¬ ing in the pain, while thinking positive thoughts. After all that, the players would go to the ir position coaches. Coach Richardson dealt with the first of¬ fense and the first defense. Coach Gra- lewski and Coach Shane trained the de¬ fense, Coach Spagnoli lined up the of¬ fensive line and defensive line, and Coach Kruiser worked with the tight ends and the split ends. Team pride is a special need for a foot¬ ball team and the varsity team definitely had it. They were proud to work for and be a part of Niles West. Discipline was required, both individual and team. The varsity team had every square inch of the discipline needed for a successful season. If individual discipline was molded with every player, then there was team disci¬ pline, because football cannot be won by every man for himself. It took support and talent from the eleven players on the field and off it. Talent, Niles West had that also. It took talent for a victory, along with discipline, pride, concentra¬ tion, goal work and a positive attitude. Niles West was a winner as a team and as individuals. Niles West had spirit, the Season spirit to become a successful team, to become number one. Niles West had love, love for the gridiron game and hard work. Niles West had determination, a determination to play the best play every play, until the end of the fourth quarter. They gave 110% on the field. Niles West had good football players, just as good in academics as on the field. People looked up to the football players, like tri-cap¬ tains Joe Klancnick, Carlos Fornaris and Eugene Pullano. Ladies and Gentlemen, this was what made a team. Niles Wests ' football team motto was: Together Each Accomplishes More in ' 84 72 Varsity Football Front row: R. Failma, C. Fornaris, M. King, R.

Has Promising Outlook " The Junior Varsity team is basically next year ' s Varsity team, since most of the guys on the Junior Varsity team will start on Varsity next year, except for a couple of sophomores ' said head coach Ron Gralewski. The Junior Varsity had very few substitute players; the team had one extra fullback, two extra tight ends and split ends with a couple of linemen. The force of the Junior Varsity team came from players like quarterback Tom Merkel, linemen Louis Mitchell and Joey Barber along with other mem¬ bers of the team. " The Junior Varsity team is made for the coaches to take a look at the future Varsity prospects, " said assistant coach Ron Shane. It looks like a fairly promis¬ ing 1985-86 Varsity football season. The Junior Varsity had several assets: good attitude, intensity, power, talent, pride, courage, good form, and the love for the game of football. Sophomores Have Tough Practices Practicing with the hard-hitting Varsi¬ ty team and new assistant coach, Bill Porter, were just two aspects new to the Sophomore Football team. There were new plays to learn, and an exciting foot¬ ball season in store. The season was tough, yet the team managed to have fun. The sophomores learned some of the fancy plays that the Varsity used, for some of them will play on the Varsity team next year. " The sophomore year in football is probably where most kids im¬ prove greatly, " said Head Coach Bob Murphy, while Coach Mel Schmidt nod¬ ded in agreement. The team worked hard and was taken seriously by both their fans and opponents. The engine was ig¬ nited by such players as quarterback Todd Kassel, fullbacks Paul Kasprak and Curtis Takiguchi, along with linemen Marc Johnson, Tony Kim and Li Wang.

Bains Freshmen Gain Experience Freshman football is perhaps the least publicized sport in any high school. This is because many people think that fresh¬ men cannot play the hard-nosed, tack¬ ling game of football. This has been proven false by the likes of Coaches Bauer, Odlivak, Erbe and Kettleborough. They are good coaches, disciplined yet gentle and caring as any father would be to his son. That ' s the kind of relation¬ ship that has developed between the coaches and the freshmen players. " These kids are real easy to work with even though they are new to the game. Today ' s young people should be given a chance to play football once in their life¬ time, " remarked Head Coach Bauer. A good way to look at freshman football is to see it as a chance for some basic learn¬ ing and some " good ol ' fun " on and off the field. Todd Kassel punts the ball down-field to the waiting The sophomore offense prepares to advance the ball down the field for the touchdown. At times like these, team. Kassel was not only the team ' s kicker but also a the long hours of practice pay off for the team, starting quarterback. Freshman And Sophomore Football 75 Kickers Illustrate Experience Soccer is one of the largest growing sports in the United States and the West¬ ern World. Throughout Europe soccer is known as " football " . This makes much more sense considering that, with the exception of the goalie, the main part of the body that comes in contact with the ball is the feet. Th e quality of the varsity team ' s footwork was clearly illustrated by their numerous victories. " Speed, grace, and hard work are what it takes to make a strong soccer team, and that ' s what we ' ve got, " explained co-captain Jim Griletz. This season instead of one captain, they had two co-captains, sen¬ iors Dan Gabel and Jim Griletz. " Above everything else, I think I ' ll remember this season as the year of the goalies. We had two first-rate goalies. I only wish they could have both started all the games, " stated coach Joe Brennan. Win or lose, with hard work and improve¬ ment, the varsity team had something to be proud of. Mike Reinhardt and Joe Lochner congratulate each other after executing a perfect shuffle to clear the ball down the field. 76 Varsity Soccer Halftime gives the Indians a chance to concentrate on the game, and get ready for the second half of play.

And Sophomore Stamina Accounts For Success The Junior Varsity Soccer Team ' s ex¬ cellent stamina and running ability ac¬ counted for much of its success on the field. " We all feel that this season turned out the way it did because of long prac¬ tices and working together as much as a team can ' commented member John Hahn. Even though their record could be improved, the players agreed that they worked hard and had a great time. The team maintaned its looseness through¬ out the whole season. J.V. player Dean Marinakis stated, " Everyone had a chance to play, and next year we ' re hop¬ ing to have a successful season. " The pinnacle of the season came against Glenbrook North which was one of the toughest teams Niles West played. The game was played under very harsh weather conditions, but the team main¬ tained its composure and gave Glen- brook North a great battle. " These play¬ ers will hopefully be on the Varsity team next year. I just know they ' re going to have a great varsity season, " concluded Coach Dave Hart.

A And B Learn Some Basics Some people may call it sacrilegious, but the strenuous workouts of the Fresh¬ man A soccer team got everything out of them plus more than they put into it. Soccer practice consisted of skilled drills and four to five miles of running. Major emphasis was placed on handling the ball. This included learning how to drib¬ ble, volley-kick, instep-kick and trap¬ ping. " Some teams had bigger and better players, but they did not play together as a team. What we had here was a team that worked as one, " stated Coach Peter Zorn. Underway and ready to take their team to the top were the Freshman B team. " Members of the Frosh B squad showed a great willingness to work and im¬ prove, " said coach Jim Sweeney adding, " Several of them moved up to the A team as a result of this improvement. " Kris Hainke and Kolza Sarov strive hard to gain con¬ trol of the ball and lead Niles West to a victory. Leonid Gubenko maneuvers to control the ball over his opponent to try to drive his team in a last ditch effort toward victory. Freshmen Soccer 79 " Strong Year " For Spikers Bumping, setting, and serving the ball were all terms set in motion by the three girls ' volleyball teams. The varsity team, inspired by high goals, started off with a boom. Victories against Highland Park and Glenbrook North carried them on a roll of enthusiasm throughout the sea¬ son The team was led by varsity team N captain Karen Wilczewski who felt that the team had improved greatly from pre¬ vious years. Head coach Ms. Sfikas de¬ scribed what she called a " strong year " and said that the girls were hard working and diligent. There were five returning seniors, Karen Wilczewski, Carol Billi- sits. Sherry Dougal, Regina Shemroske, and Deanne Zych. Teamwork and individual skills were what the junior varsity team was all about. They trained hard all season. JV coach Mr. Carr said he looks forward to next year when the girls will be playing varsity volleyball. Some outstanding players were Linda Steiner, Madeline Partipilo and Dominique Partipilo. The freshmen volleyball team mas¬ tered the basic skills of the game. " Their future looks very promising and im¬ provements occurred at every practice, " said Coach Oshay. Some hopefuls to look for in the coming years are Joy Grossberg and Jeannine Domonica. Carol Billissits sets the ball up, while Regina Shemroske backs her up.

JV Frosh Valley ball 81 Dedication Triumphs In The End Despite their meager turnout of ath¬ letes, the Boys Cross Country team had a relatively successful season. Runners such as Rocky Lee and Borpit Intawiwat often found themselves leading the var¬ sity team to victory. The team as a whole had a rough season with many injuries. Much of this can be attributed to the rigorous training schedule of Coach Pat Savage, as he often had his runners train with college runners from Oakton. How¬ ever, the stamina and endurance finally paid off when Rocky Lee came in first place at the Milwaukee Apple Invita¬ tional with Borpit finishing right behind him. " The practices were a pain at first ' confides runner Rocky, " but after a few races, we knew that it was all worth it. " Although the sophomore team was also rather small, they too had a reward¬ ing season. They are currently trying to rebuild their team and hope for a win¬ ning season next year. The freshmen have had an outstanding season, thanks to Steve Rosen, Matt Achett, Eric Wat¬ son, Robert Liu, Henry Chen, and Bryan Mittelman.

Varsity Cross Country 83 Hours Of Practice Key To Success Varsity diver Diane Rubenstein displays perfect form as she does a double. Diane was one of the top divers on the team. She placed fifth in Conference. Hard work and dedication were two main factors that helped the girls swim¬ ming season. Although workouts were tough, the Girls ' Swim Team stuck togeth¬ er and made it through a long season. " Spirit and dedication are the main keys to a good swimming season, and our team definitely had both, " said junior swimmer Lori Burns. Head Coach of the team, Nick Whelan, was the man in charge who pre¬ pared his team for upcoming meets with rival schools. Most of the swimmers agreed that practices were tough, but the key to success was hours and hours of strenuous swimming. Even after swim¬ ming constantly, morale was always at a high level. Senior swimmer and captain, Diana Santillan, did her best to keep the team ' s spirit up when they needed it most. " Besides trying to keep up morale, it was also my job to get my teammates as psyched as I possibly could for each meet that we had, " said Santillan. During the season the Girls ' Swim Team did an excellent job of setting goals and accomplishing them. Other swim¬ mers Sonya Tolksdorf, Wendy Martin, and Misty Sienkoski accomplished their goals by keeping up the team spirit to help drive their team toward victory. Mary Theodore leans to get the extra advantage over the other team in order to win the 400-free relay. Although Mary is only a freshman, she com¬ peted on the Varsity level and contributed a great deal to the team ' s success. -mM V V wT Girls Swimming Front row: C. Park, J. Langfeld, C. Balter, J.

However it was a necessary ac¬ tion that the golf team needed to take. Golf member David Cohen said, " Even though it ' s a pain to lug our equipment all the way to Wilmette every day, the practice really improves our game. " Golf calls for a lot of skill and coordi¬ nation. A steady arm and accurate judg¬ ing distance is required. If you ' re ever on the golf course and you hear someone yell ' fore ' cover your head and move out of the way. " Fore ' is a golf term that means the ball just hit is heading right in your direction. The guys on the team practiced more than two hours at the course every day. The final record for the team was not that good, but according to most players next year there should be some major improvements because everyone is plan¬ ning on practicing a lot during the sum¬ mer. There are seven spots on the varsity line-up. The spots were determined by Coaches George Galla and Dennis Hoeppner. Varsity player sophomore Tom Joseph won an outstanding second place at a major 18-hole invitational. At invitationals 18-hole games were played, while in regular dual meets 9-hole games were played. 88 Golf Team Scoreboard NW 166 Notre Dame 171 NW 163 Glenbrook North 154 NW 182 Niles North 196 NW 162 Maine East 161 NW 176 Maine South 151 NW 157 New Trier 151 NW 167 Deerfield 145 NW 175 Waukegan West 156 NW 181 Waukegan East 177 NW 175 Maine West 164 NW 171 Highland Park 147 NW 163 Glenbrook South 142 NW 324 CSL No. Div.

You may think, oh no for baseball, but it was all right for the bowlers. At first, there were not too many strikes and the team lacked confi¬ dence because they had lost three varsity bowlers last year. They thought they were going to get rolled over and knocked down, but soon the bowlers had strike after strike which led them to a great season. Then, they realized that all of the practices were worth it. Perfect form is necessary in accurate bowling. Junior Nikki Theodore aims to bowl a 300. You may think, oh all you have to do is roll a ball, but it is more than that. It all depends on form, concentration, and of course, a woman ' s soft touch. You may think that bowling is for the weak only, but bowling has grown substan¬ tially with more incoming freshmen ev¬ ery year. " We didn ' t just have a success¬ ful season, but also a lot of fun, " stated sophomore varsity bowler Sharon Smith. 90 Girls Bowling With concentration and a soft touch Linda Deutsch rolls the ball down the center of the lane.

Dedicated fans went to home and many away games, showing that they were behind the Indians every " shot of the way " . The team showed off their tal¬ ents with three pointers, dunks, stuffs, jumps and slams. The cast of characters was led by seniors Louis Atsaves, Jack Dahm, Marc Goldstein, Jay Chepulis, Ron Fortman, Larry Rivkin, Carl Czer- nik, Mike Ferdman, and Carlos Fornaris. Determination and confidence were two qualities that made the " team con¬ cept " . " We might not have the most in¬ credible talent on our team, but we defi¬ nitely compensate for that disadvantage with team hustle and determination, " commented senior Mike Ferdman.

" I was really im¬ pressed with the way the team worked hard all season, and made the most of their ability, " said Capitani adding, " For me personally, it was a very enjoyable season working with the boys. " Senior Ron Fortman summed up the team when he said, " We may have lacked height, but we worked twice as hard to make up for it. " Junior Varsity Basketball was coached by Dave Hart. The J.V. team was like the varsity team according to most players, although some of the team members dis¬ agreed. Center Rob Acheatel said, " There is a lot of difference between the two teams, becaus e many guys don ' t get to dress up for varsity games. " Guard Mitch Ratnow commented, " The only thing bad about J.V. is that games are usually on Saturday mornings and there are no fans. " Leaping into the air to perform a perfect shot from the free throw line, is senior Atsaves. Atsaves entered the Niles West Hi ry Books by scoring over 1000 points in high school career.

" The freshmen are real¬ ly not experienced, so this is a good year for them to learn all they can for their future, " commented Coach Cohn after coaching a tiring, 95-degree practice. These practices, also known as " torture workouts " , lasted two hours every day.

Sophomores, exemplary in showing what it means to be a team, were down in the Hoffman Estates game and stuck to¬ gether enough to come back and win. " Our best defensive games were against Maine West and Hoffman Estates, " said sophomore Todd Kassel.

In addition to the varsity ' s win, the junior varsity team also defeated New Trier. " I think we got off to a great start. We know we ' re going to make it all the way, " stated Coach Hartoonian. Wrestling is not just a sport, but also a way of life for these athletes. " We expect to win and have a fun time doing it. We want more than being conference and regional champs. Our goal is to make it to the state tournament, " concluded ju¬ nior Craig Brabec. 102 Varsity Wrestling " Sweating it out " was a statement that applied literally to the varsity wrestlers. Wrestlers who had to meet the standard weight for their class tried everything, from sweating gallons upon gallons of body water to starving and wearing their entire wardrobes to bed. Staying away from food was often difficult. Members would support each other by going to a movie together, or doing just about any¬ thing else to stay away from food. Spit¬ ting was one of their favorite ways to shed that extra pound. " You would be surprised how much you can lose by spitting for a couple of hours, " com¬ mented senior Steve Brabec. " Get up, you sleepy head, " was often heard by the wrestlers on a Saturday morning. The first meet of the season started at 10:00 a.m., but wrestlers were already there training, preparing, and getting psyched for the first match. Con¬ quering the opponent match after match led the varsity wrestlers to a victory at their first meet of the season against New Trier. " I ' ve been wrestling since I was in ju¬ nior high, and this is my third year so far on the Wrestling Team. I ' ve learned about work, friendship, and understand¬ ing.

Being overcome by the opponent is an intimidating thought and a disasterous outcome. But with physical and mental abilities the Freshmen Wrestling Team overcame the odds, with wins against the highly ranked Deerfield Warriors and New Trier Trevians. As the spectators go wild chanting " Indians; " in a low tone, the determined wrestlers struggle for the pin. The points are scored, throwing the team into a deci¬ sive victory. The JV2 wrestling team had many moments of victory due to the tre¬ mendous amount of skill and practice. Practice for the team was every day after school during the season. Through the leadership of undefeated wrestlers like Pat Cattern and Andy Rudin, they went on beating schools like Waukegan West. During the off-season, the dedicated wrestlers kept in shape by working out in the weight room. Besides strength and endurance, strat¬ egy is a major part of wrestling. When a wrestler is about to be pinned, he has to make a split second decision on how he is going to get out of the situation, pref¬ erably in a reversal. Pleased with the outcome of his match is junior Varsity Wrestler Mike Wiltgen. Wiltgen defeated his opponent from Proviso through a superior de¬ cision.

Graceful Gymnasts Have High Hopes " Coach, please set the vaulting board at 3 " ... " Coach, my bar setting is at 7 ' W. If you happen to be around a girls ' gymnastic area, requests such as these may be heard from the gymnasts. " Triv¬ ial " matters, such as board and bar set¬ tings, unseen by the spectators, are abso¬ lutely crucial to the gymnast. One wrong setting can result in a painful injury. One main goal for the gymnasts is to maintain an injury-free season. Careful planning by the coaches is needed to avoid painful mishaps. Spirits ran high this season, with high hopes for titles such as Conference, Sectional, or Re¬ gional champions. Over the past few years, the Gymnastic Team has received Sophomore Lauri Margolin is flipping into a full twisting back. This is Lauri ' s second year on the Varsity Gymnastic Team. the honor of being named an All-Ameri¬ can team. Being selected from top teams gave the girls more to strive for and to uphold. As for the present season, try-outs were held to guarantee a competitive team and not just a performing team. Sophomore, all around competitor, Lauri Margolin blazed the trail with her high scores and advanced technique. Equally as impressive was senior captain Peggy Thill, who continued in her pursuit for excellence on the uneven parallel bars. Third year team member, junior Steph¬ anie Leader executed brilliantly on the uneven parallel bars. 106 Girls Gymnastics Front row: S. Leader, N. Kim, N. Goetz, K. McKeon, P. Thill, L. Barasch, L.

Boys Gymnastics 109 Runners On The Right Track As the words " On your marks, and Set " were said, hearts pounded, legs shook, and only one thing went through the minds of runners — win. The Girls ' Track team planned on winning. They had reason to believe so, because many hours were put in before the season started. Running through the halls, working out in the hydro-fitness room, using track facilities at Niles East, and even running outside in January were just a few of the things the girls did to prepare themselves. " We hope to come in the top half of our conference. We are in a tough con¬ ference and have a young team that needs development and are eager to learn, " commented Coach Jean Armour. The girls had set a lot of goals for the year. Some were to learn to work togeth¬ er like a family, discipline themselves, and to master their skills. At the beginning of the season there were many enthusiastic runners like Chris Sammuel, " Since this is my first year on track, I feel very optimistic about the season ahead. The people on track are friendly and the coaches are very supportive. " Freshman runner Laura Oroni, who is on varsity said, " I love being part of the team. It was great when we won our first meet against Maine South. " Co-captain Diana Hellestrae stated, " We have a lot of talent and if we work together, we can achieve our goals. We may lack quantity, but we make it up with quality. We plan on doing well in conference.

Soccer Team Kicks Into Action Kicking, passing, blocking, dribbling, and a great deal of running are just a few skills needed for a successful soccer team. The Girls Soccer team was constantly drilled in these skills. The proof of how successful these tough workouts were was revealed when they entered on to the field. At the end of last season the team finished with a 10-2-2 record. The girls only lost to the number one and number two teams in the state " We only lost one senior last year, so this year should be dynamite. With all our start¬ ers returning including four seniors that have been playing Varsity Soccer since fresh¬ man year, we ought to be very tough this season ' said Senior Captain Diana Santil- lan. Junior goalie Karina Doyle practices heading the ball before a game. Doyle was named All-Conference last year. This was the first time there was a fresh¬ men team. " I think it is a good idea for there to be freshmen team. It prepares them for Varsity and they will get the experience they need to compete on a high school level. It also allows all the other members of the JV to play that didn ' t get a chance last year because of the large group of freshmen that joined. " said junior Georgia Sotiropoulos. Varsity captain Diana Santillan ' s goals were to qualify for the finals in the state tournament. " We have a very good chance of making it because we were just two games away last year ' explained Santillan. The team ' s quest for victory was led by coaches Joe Brennen and Peter Zorn. 112 Girls Soccer Front row: A. Santillan, K. Doyle, C. Bychowski. Back row: D. Cickoski, K. Wilczewski, L.

Girls Soccer 113 Boys Track Keeps " We are going to develop a team, a new team. This year is a new year. We are starting off with a 0-0 record, and we have to find out who ' s good at what. I plan to d o that. " This was only one of the things that new Coach Ron Campbell of the Boys Track Team said referring to the season. " We have to take advantage of what we have, " Campbell concluded. The team consisted of about seven shotputters, five discus throwers, two high-jumpers, four long jumpers, four triple jumpers, along with sprinters, hurdlers and distance runners. Ail were coached by Assistant-Coach Pat Savage, who had formerly served as Head Coach. Coach Campbell was in the mood for changes in the coaching system. One major change was the addition of Coach Terese Kimura to help the long jumpers. He also arranged to have the Boys and Girls Track teams practice together on Tuesdays and Thursdays. After a rough race water bottles are a common and welcome sight among runners. Pace " This team is a fairly young team, con¬ sisting of mostly freshmen, with a few lettermen returning, " commented Assis¬ tant-Coach Savage. Junior Rocky Lee agreed adding, " I think we have a fine team with young, multi-talented track stars, mixed with experienced long dis¬ tance runners, which should make us a well-balanced underdog. " This was a small team compared to the opponents teams and past West teams. They strived to be a winning team and were successful. Besides their team goals they also achieved many personal goals, such as record times, jumps and throws. The team traveled to far-away lands such as Rolling Meadows, Sterling, Mor¬ ton East, University High, Luther South and Robeson. The track team may not have been the Conference Champs, but they were the Niles West ' s champs, win¬ ning the hearts of their true blue fans and parents. 114 Boys Track Mental preparation along with " good tunes " get sophomore David Bloom psyched for the track meet. Walkmen have become very popular among track runners for before meets and practices. Reaching out for his teammate, junior Steve Lee passes the baton to the last runner in the mile relay. Long strides in the third lap of the relay by Lee gives the mile relay team the energy to gain a first place for the Indians. Intensity is shown on the face of senior track member Tony Cheung as he gives it his best up to the finish line. Track team runners " grit and bear " the pain in order to beat their opponents. Perfect passing of the baton by a teammate enables junior Dean Marinakis to head for the finish line in the last lap of the 400-relay. Boys Track 115 116 Optimisn And Experience - Key To Winning Season Strike one! Strike two! Strike three! You ' re out! The baseball team did not do much of that in their season. In fact, as they got their bats cracking and their arms throwing, the players were very op¬ timistic about their season. The team had good reasons to be ex¬ cited. One contributing factor to their enthusiasm was the excellent season by the team last year and in the summer. Through great pitching, excellent hitting and outstanding fielding, the team placed first in their division and traveled downstate to battle with the best during the summer. Unfortunately, after an up¬ setting loss in the last inning 2-1 to Her- shey, the state champions, they placed fourth in the state. Senior pitcher Joe Klancik stated, " We had some heart¬ breaking losses last year, but this year we plan to get back at Hershey. " Another reason for their optimism was the outstanding group of players. These boys contributed to the team ' s success last summer. Such players were Behind all the catching gear, starting catcher senior Ron Clark can get very hot. Behind the pads and mask is one tough catcher ready to throw out any player that attempts to steal a base. senior-pitcher Joe Klancik, whose pitches were close to 90 m.p.h. last sum¬ mer, senior-short stop Jack Dahm, sen¬ ior-pitcher Bill Wolter, senior-catcher Ron Clark and junior-pitcher Joe Lochner. All of whom were willing to put in 100% to have a winning team. Joe Klancik also added, " To be a winning team you must contribute to the team as a team player, and not as an individual. " Overall, the outlook on the upcoming season was good, with great players and the spirit from the previous summer, the team plans to go far. Coach George Galla stated, " We have a good team, but the other teams have gotten better also. The two toughest teams to beat in our confer¬ ence should be Waukegan East and Waukegan West. " Nevertheless, the spirit of the team was up. Senior-short¬ stop Jack Dahm stated, " We are going to take it one step at a time, we ' re first go¬ ing to win conferences then we ' ll do well in the state tourney. We have the materi¬ al. " After an Indian win, seniors Jack Dahm and Scott Marshall are ready to celebrate with their team members. Now, after a victory, there are lots of high fives and contratulations. i ij i Perfect form is shown by senior Robert Puetz, as he makes contact with the ball. The third-baseman Puetz is a strong hitter for the Indians. Front row: Dale Lasky, Mark Poulakidas, John Panchisin, Robert Puetz, Jeff Lowell, Scott Marshall, Rick Maybrun.

Boys Baseball 117 Softball - Not Just Hit And Run Softball originated in Chicago in the year 1887. It was developed by a man named George W. Hancock. It was first invented as an indoor baseball game, but is now played competitively in over thir¬ ty countries. Of course it has made its way to West! The softball team consisted of four¬ teen players. They practiced everyday after school for two hours, and had games two to three times a week. A game of softball is not just " hit and run. " Soft- ball can be hard on the knees and hard on the hands. Sliding to " steal " second base can certainly promote sore and scraped knees. A softball is not as " soft " as the name Successfully catching a ground ball is Junior Mar- iann Janessa.

Dawn Fendt was the Varsity Softball coach. This was Fendt ' s second year of coaching softball. The team ' s closeness greatly added to its success. Considering that the team had mostly new members, they showed enough experience to play a " tough " game. The biggest rival team they played was New Trier. They are a tough team and play a hard game. " I really liked this year, because there were mostly new players. They made it a whole new experience, " said junior Diane Mimp. 118 Girls Softball Following through on a swift pitch is sophomore Kim Back row: A. Hartman, S. Boscapomi, J. Carstens, M. Janessa, K.

Last season, al¬ though the team was set back a bit by injuries, they still came out ahead with second place in districts, and second place in the Glenbrook finals. The success of the team was attributed mainly to the practices. Vigorous prac¬ tices after-school consisted of condition¬ ing, running and fundamentals. Players would practice to improve their forehand and backhand strokes and practice sin¬ gles and doubles matches. " Winning districts and being one of the top teams in state are two of our main goals, " stated Coach Frank Sacks. Also coaching the team was Leonard Winans. Co-captains were seniors Eliot Schencker and Kenny Rosen. When asked, " What do you hope to achieve this year? " Eliot Schencker replied, " We hope to have a strong season and go downstate, " Schencker added, " We have the most talented team we ' ve had in years! " A plus to the team was freshman Mar¬ cus Plonus who played Varsity during his first year on the team. The team ' s strength also was in players sophomore Tom Malkin and junior Craig Izenstark. The team members had a good outlook for the season. Through hard work, dedi¬ cation and court time in the off season, the team was prepared physically and mentally for a good season. 120 Boys Tennis Coaches play a major role in the game of tennis.

AFS ' ers had numerous fundraisers with the hope of earning enough money to give some substantial aid to the adventurers whose applications were accepted. In addition to these fundraisers, the group planned field trips and socials with international themes. One such example was the International Weekend, held on October 25-28. Twelve foreign exchange students, re¬ presenting the countries of Italy, Australia, Norway, and Ghana were treated to an ice-cream social, a Halloween costume party, and a tour around downtown Chicago, and also attended classes at West for one day.

This club is Art Coun¬ cil. These great ideas were turned into various art projects throughout the school year by students who created some of the best art work shown in years. Examples of their superb artwork can be seen in the girls ' gymnastics area, music rooms, and swimming locker rooms. A brilliant display was made of Bart Conner, which was shown when Bart came to school for a pep assembly. Leadership was shown in organizing the club by offi¬ cers John Witte, president; Dena Novak, vice-president; and Dave Kolber, secretary treasurer. Sponsor Gary Da¬ vis stated, " This ' 84- ' 85 Art Council proved to be one of the best in recent years. Positive, mature leadership, and enthusiastic membership with plenty of creative ideas promise more great things for an already successful year " . Art Council had shown tremendous success and will continue to do so in the future. Up, Up And Away The Aeronautics Club is one of the oldest organizations at West. Its primary aim is to provide interested students with a chance to design, build, and fly model aircrafts and rockets. " We hope to introduce and enlarge skills and knowledge in the field of aero¬ nautics by building and flying model air¬ crafts and rockets ' stated club sponsor Mr. Wayne Rogoski. Sophomore Young-Sik Whang, President of the Aeronautics Club, said that he came into the club with only a limited knowledge of building scale air¬ crafts. Now he can build flying aircrafts and rockets with a great deal of expertise and fly them with a certain degree of skill. The other officers of the Aeronautics Club are sophomore Dawn Illing as vice-presi¬ dent and sophomore Christine Olsen as secretary and treasurer. The feature fund raiser for the Aeronau¬ tics Club was a " great balloon race, " in which the contestants had a chance at cash prizes. Anyone could enter this contest by placing a 50 entry fee. First place received $10.00, second place got $5.00, and third place got $2.98. To enter, you wrote your name on a card and tied it to a balloon which was then launched. The balloon that went the furthest won the contest. Front row: Vince Fang, Michelle Yaras, Demetrios Limber, Andreas Papadakis, Jason Hsu.

The fifteen members practiced ev¬ ery day after school. " It ' s a great atmo¬ sphere for making friends and learning more about chess, " stated team captain Jeff Snyder. Jeff took first place in the Evanston High School Tournament. The guys agreed that playing chess after school was fun and entertaining. However, when the time came for a tournament, they had to have chal¬ lenges within the team at practice because only eight people were able to be in each meet. The team was in the North Suburban Chess League. Tournaments at Niles West were held in the Ma th and Science Resource Center. Al¬ though there were no girls on the Chess Team this year, they are always welcome to join. Coach of this year ' s Chess Team, War¬ ren Holz, said, " I had a lot of fun on the Chess Team this year, it is a really intense sport, and can greatly improve your reason- ing ability.

Load: Computer Club After school at 2:45 the computer lab was silent, but at 2:46 beeps and clicks could be heard resounding throughout the room. These technological sounds sig¬ nified turning on the computer and typing programs on the keyboard. Students were to visit the open lab to work individually, thus providing an experience in independent study. Participation in chosen group ac¬ tivities and competition with others was not a require¬ ment.

Candidates running for an office in Freshman Cabinet had a chance to explain their views about what they could do for the Freshman Class over the P.A. system. Each candidate had one minute to talk, and the opportunity to make a video tape to be shown in the cafeteria on election day. Buttons and posters were found in abundance among the freshmen, stating their choices. " Campaigning is the most exciting part of an election, " exclaimed candidate Jinjer Brody. " It ' s important for stu¬ dents to learn and comprehend the fundementals of an election. It helps us later in life to pick the best candidate by understanding the issues involved, " stated Karla Krone. " This election had a large number of students running for an office. I think this shows that the Fresh¬ man Class cares about what ' s going on, " stated sponsor Geri Nash. When the polls closed the winners were Presi¬ dent, Dessie Atsaves; Vice-President, Benje Malkin; Sec¬ retary, Tracy Michaels; and Treasurer, Missy Rabin. Al¬ though only four freshmen could be chosen as the lead¬ ers, all Freshmen Cabinet members benefited from their participation in the activities. 4 Front Row: Lauri Margolin, Patricia Kerstein, Sharon Lapp, Diane Smason.

On these days, the Cabinet took trips to the Julie S. Molloy Center. At the center they visited with the handi¬ capped kids. On certain days, some of the children played basketball. The center had a team made up of boys and girls who practiced and played against other teams. Cabinet members helped them with their practice. Not only was it beneficial for the kids, but members of the cabinet learned a lot from their interaction with the handicapped children. Patience and understanding were needed to make the visit successful. All juniors involved gained a great learning ex¬ perience. The Cabinet also planned a Second Battle of the Bands. As usual, the class planned the Prom. With the greater turnout at Cabinet meetings, they had many accomplishments and gained class unity.

Cabinet Alive in ' 85 The seniors first project of the year was the Senior Cabinet Home¬ coming float, which was part of the Homecoming Parade. Addition¬ ally, they held a Christmas party at at the Hull House Day Care Center and organized their major and most successful activity, the selling of Senior Class T-shirts. They were also in charge of plan¬ ning the most important event of their high school career, gradu¬ ation. When asked whether they had accomplished their goals for the year. President Larry Rivkin explained, " We had an excellent year in Senior Class Cabinet. We had more members in the group than ever before. As an organization, we brought joy to others through com¬ munity service and also did whatever small part we could in making this a memorable year for the Class of ' 85.

Rain, sleet, snow and low temperatures did not put a damper on their spirit. Spirit was at a high, and the Cheerleaders were partly responsible for arousing this feeling of unity. All three squads spent numerous hours practicing and the results showed on the football field and basketball court. Proving to be more than just spirited, were the Vasity Cheerleaders. The girls put in many vigorous hours of practice over the summer in order to prepare for the competitions that they participated in at U.S.C.A. (United States Cheerleading Association) Camp at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. At camp they excelled and won 2nd place in the competition, received the “most spirited " award, four 2nd place ribbons and an elgibility to compete in Nationals - the largest cheerleading competition in the nation. “We worked very hard, but we had a lot of fun too. We were a very close squad and that contributed to our really loving what we do, " re¬ marked Captain Anna Karalis. Before the Varsity Cheerleaders performed, the Sophomore Cheerleaders promoted spirit at the 6:00 p.m. games. Camp provided the squad with many new cheers, mount ideas, and dance routines. The sophomores at¬ tended UCA Camp. Time was short tor the Freshman Cheerleaders to get their act together and get on the football field. With only a week to organize themselves after tryouts in September, cheers and chants had to be taught and learned in a matter of a few short practices before the first game. It was hard to generate a lot of spirit at 9:30 a.m. with such small crowds, but the freshman put their best foot forward and always cheered their loudest. Freshmen Cheer¬ leaders gained experience, a new style of cheering and many new friends through being on the squad. The group ' s future looks bright, with Varsity prospects in just two years. Tryouts, camps, and practices are the parts of cheerleading the fans never see, but they ao see and hear the final results: cheers, cnants, mounts, enthusiasm, and most of all SPIRIT!

The Spirit Squad helped the cheerleaders in lifts, mounts, and pyramids. " It is important to get students involved and to encourage the entire student body to help support their team, " stated Cap¬ tain Harry Anderson. Spirit Squad members included seniors Harry Anderson, Dale Lasky, Judd Brody, and Mark Sobczak. The junior on the squad was Jon Lisco. " Niles West has come a long way in school spirit, we only help to support and encourage it and hope it will continue throughout the years, " stated Harry Anderson. Spirit Squad sponsors included Barbara Chasow and Athletic Director Gerald Turry. " Our goal is to increase support for our Indian team and to keep it alive throughout ' 85, " concluded Anderson. Boosting Spirits 132 Cheerleaders Spirit Squad Performing in unison, the senior cheerleaders work to boost the crowd ' s enthusiasm during a home football game. It takes more than courage to perform a mount such as this. Varsity cheer¬ leaders raise the spirit of the crowd at an all-school assembly. " Go Big Red ...

" Debate Team is great to be in, because you get to meet new people, you ' re able to find out more about yourself, and you ' re able to learn a lot more about the world we live in, " said junior Jerry Kang, president of the team. The team was sponsored and coached by both Sandra Berkowitz and James Batts. The Debate Team officers who also helped the team strive toward victory were junior Helen Shapiro, Vice-president, and junior Judy Mann, secretary and treasurer. The team had a busy schedule during the year, including such tournaments as the 1984 Wamplem Invitational De¬ bate Classic, which was held November 2-3, and the IHSA Sectionals in Debate, held February 22-23. The thirty debat¬ ers accomplished their goals, by increasing participation and determination by all participants. Both participants and staff also agreed that greater knowledge and acceptance of debate was a key factor in their strive toward victory throughout the year.

These are just two of the great advantages of the Ecology Club. The club members spend most of their time outside on the Prairie. They gather seeds in the fall and grow them in the greenhouse during the winter. Then, in the spring, they replant these prairie forbs and and grasses back into the prairie. One of the more difficult tasks for the students is the burning of the prairie. It is burned every year in the fall to rid it of foreign weeds and grasses. This was done long ago by American Indians to make travel easier. It is not all hard work for the members, however. They participated in other exciting endeavors as well. They trav¬ eled to such places as the Morris Fossil Pits, where they were able to search for ancient fern fossils, and many other excit¬ ing ventures. Sophomore member Dawn Illing considered Ecology Club " an educating and fun experience.

A charity drive, music in the cafeteria, and a pop ma¬ chine were just a few ideas discussed around the table in Room 012. Meetings were every so often, for the group was involved in Council activities during Mods 14-16. This was the Executive Coordinating Council. Executive Coordinating Council provided the bond necessary to link together all of the Student Council Activities by having interaction between Union, Senate and Cabinet members. Presidents and Vice-Presidents met along with their respective advisors, John Winter¬ halter, Director of Practical Arts and the Principal Dr. Donald Ring. Views were shared on issues brought up by the specific groups, as well as topics brought up by the principal. Members of the Council gave their opinions on various issues. A Meeting with the Board of Education originated in this group and was taken on by the Senior Class Cabinet President Larry Rivkin and Vice-President Tony Sherman. All in all, these student leaders worked togeth¬ er as an executive branch.

Many are fortunate to actually see the beautiful gardens and castles in France, but at Niles West, the foreign language resource center provided the ambiance of “Gay Paree. " Interested students learned about the heritage and histories of a graceful society. Mrs. Masur, acting as a “tour guide " to the club, helped the members appreciate the culture. So, if you come across the aroma of crepe-su- zette in the language center, stop by and dine with the cultured members of the French Club. The room was filled with the aroma of Weiner Schnitzel, tantilizing the taste buds of all. Other German goodies were also to be found at the annual German Club Christmas party. The party was open to all students, and gave members a chance to show off their German cook¬ ing. Another important event was the stu¬ dent exchange. “We hope to have a more organized student exchange program be¬ tween Germany and Niles West. We want to send ten students to Germany next summer, " stated Cindy Lee. Officers were President Linda Meixner, Vice-President Aleli Estrada, Secretary Cindy Lee, and Treasurer Grace Kwon. Selling suckers and but¬ tons subsidized the exchange program. “Responsibility seemed to be a big factor this year, and that ' s what made the Ger¬ man Club what it is today.

Greek Life From Mount Olympus to Niles West, the Hellenic Club ' s gods and godesses planned many activities to cele¬ brate Greek culture. The activities ranged from their var¬ ious fundraisers to planning their Greek dinner. Interested students took time out from their busy schedules to attend the monthly meetings held in the evening. Many of the club members exhibited enthusiasm as they were eager to partiepate in the various club-spon¬ sored events. Many of the fundraisers held aided needy organiza¬ tions. Club member senior Linda Kontos stated, " We real¬ ly had a good time participating in these events and our time and efforts were worthwhile. " ' Some of the activities held included a dinner at a Greek restaurant, bake-sales, and the annual bike-a-thon. They also participated in an International Night that was held at Niles North by performing a Greek dance. The Hellenic Club provided cultural enrichment to all of its members. I Chaverim Mevalim Tov Friends HaveGoodTime " Shalon " , " Echad, shitem, sholosh . . " I have a little dreidel . . . " Shecket, b ' vakashah! " Hebrew phrases and Jewish lyrics mixed together in a confused mass of sing¬ ing, laughing, and shouting at each meeting of the Israeli Club. Students shared their memories and knowledge of the Jewish culture. Together the members were able to acquire a genial feeling towards their peers, as a special bond formed by learning about the past struggle that unified these otherwise separate and unique individuals. A Chanukah party was shared with the Hebrew classes, complete with spinning dreidels, glittering gelt, and a shiny menorah. The Israeli Club extended the food selec¬ tion to falafel, matzoh-ball soup, and hamentaschen, when it had an Israeli food cook-in. The members enjoyed the preparation as much as the resulting feast. The group also took a field trip to the Spertus College Museum, finding that by sharing impressions and emotions, one is presented with a new perspective of history. Even the typical candy-sale fundraiser was given a special touch when part of the profits was donated to an Israeli charity. Led by sponsor Alex Miron, President Anna Minkov, Co-Vice-Presidents Yana Margolin and Michael Jacobs, Secretary Melinda Ring, and Treasurer Marla Zissman, the group was able to participate in many new exper¬ iences.

If you answered " yes " to any of the above, you should come join in the fun with the Spanish Club members. With the dedicated help of Mrs. Herminia Lopez, the sponsor, a lot was accomplished even though the students met only twice a month for this exciting activity. Don ' t worry if you don ' t know any Spanish, there are no language requirements. The club is open to all students interested in having a good time and learning about another language. " I am pleased that the club has grown substantially over the years. I am also glad that so many students can come and have an enjoyable time, " said Lopez. Accomplished Estudiantes The Spanish Honor Society was, in senior Ken Wexler ' s words, " a group of people who work together to learn the Spanish culture and the language. " The society was made up of twenty students who excelled in the Spanish language. The activities included organizing an International Fair, at¬ tending a Hispanic cultural event, and taking a field trip to an ethnic restaurant.

Those noises became music with the talent and practice of approximately twenty- five musically-inclined students. The Jazz Band re¬ hearsed two or three times a week to perfect its harmo¬ nious compositions. The band performed for the com¬ munity and at various school functions, such as the senior assembly. In addition, these skillful players provided the music for the Orchesis dance show, and accompanied the troupe on tour. The sponsor Bill Koch stated, " Jazz Band is an excel¬ lent opportunity for students to become well-rounded musicians. " The validity of this statement could be seen upon examination of the wide range of music that the band played, with pieces extending from " I ' m in the Mood, " by Glen Miller, to " Roxanne, " by the Police.

Approximately 140 students attended band class during school and practices in the evening to prepare for these events. Band Director Bill Koch and club President Ni¬ cholas Markos were responsible for keeping the band running smoothly. Koch said, " I was pleased with the overall contribution of the members of the Marching Band. The band, Color Guard, and Pom-Pon Girls worked well together, which added to a very exciting show. " After the football season came to a close, the Marching Band divided into two separate ensembles, the Concert Band and the Symphonic Band. These musicians perform at numerous functions throughout the remainder of the year, such as the Holiday Festival, the Boston Pops Din¬ ner and Concert, and the May Festival. " It ' s a great feel¬ ing when you ' re in a fine marching band, symphonic band, or percussion ensemble, " stated sophomore Todd Sucherman. " We ' re all of that. There ' s a lot of pride. " Band members also spent much of their time together rehearsing and performing in shows. They traveled through Michigan, Toronto, Niagara Falls, and Ohio on tour. Though a lot of hard work was required for this trip, there was plenty of enjoyment experienced by all. Junior David Rubin concluded, " The many different activities of the band during the year teach a great deal of musi- cianship and a variety of styles. Band isn ' t just a music class, it teaches the fundamentals of life, too. " Keeping his eye on the conductor junior Marc Cooper plays his tam- bornes. Since his drums are too heavy to march with, he has to stay on the sidelines. Sing, sing, and sing, that was all these people did. Yes, you guessed it, these people belonged to the Concert Choir. Led by newcomer Mrs. Sherri Owens, the Choir strived for perfection. Choir President, senior Nancy Anglin stated, " Concert Choir has given me the opportunity to expand my musical knowledge and to compete with my peers. " The members of the choir worked hard to prepare for performances such as The Holiday Festival and the annual music department tour. The choir has also ex¬ panded, and now they have a girls ' group, an acapella choir, and a musical dance choir called " Expressions. " " Choir has given me the chance to grow mentally and musically, " stated junior Melis¬ sa Rubens. From Bach To Rock Concentrating on the voices of her students, Choir Director Sherri Owens is pleased with the final results.

They practiced one hour a day, five days a week. The special events that Concert Orchestra participated in were the Bos¬ ton Pops Concert, Holiday Concert, and May Festival. The Festival was the biggest event for the orchestra members. Concert Orchestra members also went to Northwestern University to compete for prizes. Senior Vidal Limpin made the All State Honor Orchestra. The state orchestra consisted of the best concert players in state. Some of the fund-raisers held by the orchestra were a car wash, selling cards, cheese and sausage, and calenders. All the money earned was used to take a trip to Canada. At the end of the year a banquet was held for orchestra members. Freshman received certificates, sophomores — letters, juniors — silver pins, and seniors — gold pens. When sophomore Daryl Stern was asked what he thought of Concert Orchestra, Stern replied, " It is a great experience where one meets a lot of new people.

That is what the Midnight Riders do the night before a football game. Midnight Riders are a group of girls who get together at the beginning of the week to make posters and signs and to gather toilet paper to prepare for Thursday night. Grouping off into three or four different cars, girls head for different footall players ' houses and that ' s where the fun really begins. Different talents are exercised by the way toilet paper is thrown, rolled, tossed, and pitched. The art of toilet paper has spread from the bathroom to the trees, bushes, shrubs, gates, flower beds and front lawns. The object is to drape toilet paper " everywhere " ! Senior Brain Gawin, feels that the work that goes into the pre¬ game helps to rouse pep and enthu¬ siasm for the game held the next day. " The posters serve as momen- tos of our football days in high school. It is also a good way for girls to get involved in an activity that is appreciated and fun. " Active Athletes Encourage Enthusiasm The N-Club offered membership to athletes who al¬ ready had received their varsity letter. Sponsor Brian " DOC " Katman believed the N-Club was an awesome force in school spirit. The N-Club raised funds from concessions at boys and girls basketball games. They also sponsored the all-school volleyball game and the annual N-Club-vs-Faculty basketball game. They raised funds for the Paul Gams scholarship, along with other honor¬ ary N-Club memberships that go to unrecognized indivi¬ duals who supported Niles West athletes. " The N-Club is a good club to have fun in, and at the same time, help Niles West athletics, " stated President Ron Fortman. The N-Club, which met once or twice a month, was actively involved in school, with members from all sports. Membership in the N-Club can always be looked back upon as a memorable experience.

During football season people started watching the color¬ ful flags spinning through the field at halftime. The Color Guard also performed at basketball games and parades, with rifles in addition to flags. Due to the growing size of the club, senior Beth McCaw and junior Joanna Kohl were appointed as officers. They helped with flag work, along with Jane Pablich who was hired to help organize the club at practices and games. The Color Guard performs at all band performances and accompanies the band on tour.

" The Niles West dance company has joined many other Orchesis groups found¬ ed in high schools and colleges throughout the United States. The dances performed at various junior high schools and had their annual spring performance. The officers were President Lori Kaplan, Vice-President Nan¬ cy Yamaguchi, Secretary Carrie Kaplan, and Treasurer Nancy Goren. " Being an active member of this activity, I can t say enough about how great an organization the Orchesis dance company is. By means of this club. I ' ve expanded my knowledge of dance and met many other people who share the same interests. There is a very strong bond which unifies all the members of the company, our love of dance! " exclaimed Nancy Goren. We, the dancers of the company, try to acquaint fellow students as well as the people in our community with dance. Using our whole body, we communicate our ideas, thoughts, and emotions. We dance for the sheer joy of dance, " replied Sandy Sun, when asked how she felt about dance. Fundraisers for this organization included selling jewelry, buttons and candy bars. The money made from these fundraisers goes toward the payment of costumes, music and other various expenses of the show. Gretchen Glader, sponsor of Orchesis stated, " The purpose of Orchesis is to promote the development and appreciation of dance by offering oppor¬ tunities for creative dance experience.

Provides Morning Wake-Up Call The P.A. announcers were a vital link in informing stu¬ dents about what was going on in school. They an¬ nounced social events, sports ' results, and other pertinent school information. Announcers were picked on the quality of their voices, including how pleasant and cheer¬ ful he or she sounded. Once a person was selected as a P.A. announcer, he or she stays an announcer until graduation. The P.A. announcers were sophomore Rebecca Kolber, sophomore Chris Samuel, and junior Sheryl Shiman- ovsky. " I really enjoy being a P.A. announcer a lot, " stated Chris Samuels. By the way, those " bells " we hear every morning aren ' t a recording, but actually the multi¬ talented P.A. announcers playing the xylophone.

The squad consisted of twenty-five members. The captains were Sen¬ iors Stephanie Resnick and Yun Kim, and the secretary was Senior Julie Huber. The Squad participated in summer competitions at Badgerette Camp and at the Wisconsin State Fair. For fundraisers to buy new uni¬ forms they had a car wash and in-school bake sales. Year after year the goal for the Pom-Pon sauad is the same; to build a strong reputable group, to let Pom-Pon be a learning experience, and to have the girls ' years as a Pom-Pon girl be one of the happiest memories of all. " The most rewarding and important thing to learn from being in such an organization as Pom-Pon is to learn to work together and be a family, " stated Pom-Pon secretary. Senior Julie Huber. The sponsor of this year ' s squad, Lori Barranco, thinks of this squad as more than an after school activity. " This past year has been a most memorable experience. We ' ve had many obstacles to overcome yet we ' ve gained many accom¬ plishments. Working with these girls is a very important part of my life. They have given me the gift of love, a feel¬ ing of pride, and the joy of accomplish- m e n t . Through all the good times and the bad, I ' ll al¬ ways cherish these memo¬ ries.

" Not many people know much about, because it can ' t be classified as theatrical or musical like other organizations, " commented Cheryl Schwartz. Desired Characteristics: WHO: Approximately twenty-five students of all classes. WHEN: At major productions and concerts. HOW: Dividing into groups of 6-8 per show, each member allowed a choice of days. WHAT: Passing out programs, taking tickets, seating the audience, keeping order at children ' s shows, helping handicapped people, and pro¬ viding extra assistance at senior citizen afternoon performances. WHY: " A service club is really necessary at a high school. It gives the students a chance to gain poise and develop social grace, " stated sponsor Terese Klinger. Solution: The Ushers Club Did you know? 1. Five-hundred people are killed in alcohol related accidents each week; 2. Twenty-five thousand people are killed each year in alcohol relat¬ ed accidents; 3. Alcohol related crashes are the leading cause of death for young Americans between the ages of sixteen and twenty-four. S.A.D.D., Student Against Driving Drunk, is an organization aware of, and concerned with, these and many more frightening statistics. S.A.D.D. member, senior Judd Brody stated, " Due to its large membership and the concern of its members, S.A.D.D. has the potential to become a powerful organization. " And so far it has. In its second year S.A.D.D. membership has grown from fifteen to over sixty, allowing the club to sponsor large activities such as a library display and the Township Reachout to Youth during Drug Awareness Week. Scholars Confront The Issues " The purpose of this program is to confront students with a series of discussions on complex and often sensitive issues. It is our hope that they will have a deeper understanding of the complexity of even seemingly simple issues, " commented co-sponsor Jack Lorenz when expressing his sentiments on the Seminars for Scholars program. Due to the overwhelming responses made by both seniors and juniors eager to take part in the program, only seniors were chosen to participate. The requirements to enter were not based on academic achievement but rather, on the intellectual curiosity to engage in an atmosphere that encouraged debate and discussion among the students and the speaker. The topics covered ranged from Criminal Justice Systems and Prison Reform to Sanctuaries for Central American Refugees. The speakers of the programs were leaders in their field of study. They presented the students with an exciting presentation followed by an opportunity for the students to voice their own opinions. — I proofreads ,the stories that have just come in. )rr plays a major role in th Spectrum Staff.

This jibberjabber, screaming and constant noise was heard in the Spectrum room, 103, before, dur¬ ing and after deadlines. The constant threats of fall delivery and late production days shattered the room, hanging over the editors and staff. It seemed as though it would never come together, but through hard work and mapped-out deadlines. Spectrum ' 85 became a reality. When the yearbook was finally finished, remnants of five deadlines re¬ mained: torn up copy sheets, unused pictures, left¬ over layouts, croppers (broken, of course) and one sticker with that magic production number on it, 10719. This number lived on, implanted in the Spectrum ' 84- ' 85 staff ' s minds forever, a memory of wild n ' crazy times, mapped out from day one. Senior Anna Karalis works diligently as she types down Senior Surveys for the senior section before her deadline — only 435 seniors to go. i JUL mmmmm As Editor-in-chief, senior Julie Keller ' s job is not only to organize the yearbook and make sure deadlines are in, but also to teach new students how to put everything together. Mapping Out Deadlines - 10719 Leading The Spirit Pack Seniors for School Spirit, one of the newest organizations at Niles West, has caught on fire with the senior class. " Founding Fathers " Larry Rivkin, Gus Atsaves, and Brad Kolar have orga¬ nized activities such as hat day and traditional Hawaiian dress days. Seldom has school spirit been organized so that all seniors could participate. By word of mouth, " fun " days were announced. The next day was filled with crazy grass skirts or hats with wings like the FTD Florist! At the Homecoming Parade, S.F.S.S. even represented them¬ selves with a Homecoming float. The group led the parade with painted faces and victory chants. Hopefully, the tradition of organized spirit for seniors will be continued. It gives all a chance to feel like they are an active part of their own senior class. Furthermore, S.F.S.S. helps keep the seniors on top of the school, not just age wise, but especially spirit wise! With faces decorated, streamers flying, and ghetto blaster blaring, S.F.S.S. is ready to show the community that they mean business.

Buttons bearing numbers 1 through 350 were worn around school. Above- After putting in hours of hard work planning homecoming events. Student Union members show their enthusiasm by riding atop their Homecoming truck. The parade allows Union members a chance to let their spirit soar. Record membership sparked high! The effects: increased enthusiasm, spirit, and events. Who would believe that a group of 28 could turn to 80? Student Union did just that, allowing students and faculty to enjoy the benefits of this enthusiastic group. From the beginning, it was all work, yet still fun. Chairmen were selected, and planning for Home¬ coming ' 84 began. As always, it was rush-rush and craziness for the months before Homecoming week, but the group pulled it off with style. As the name says, . . UNION, the members worked to¬ gether as one for the benefit of the entire school. The Homecoming week was aboard the Niles West Victory Ship, creating an atmosphere of sail ¬ ing. Events occurred every day, including many new activities such as flipper races and a Bon Voy¬ age celebration. " I was impressed by the amount of people who worked to make Homecoming so suc¬ cessful. There were many chairmen and members who spent long hours and deserve a lot of credit for making Homecoming so special and spectacular, " said Student Union President Julie Keller. Another new edition to Union events was the " Bash " . The first of these bashes was the First Friday Night Bash after a basketball game, wres¬ tling meet and swimming meet on December 7th. The bash was an informal social where students could boogie with their friends to the music of a Dance Experience Disc Jockey. Buttons sold out in less than two sets of lunch mods on Monday and Tuesday. The tickets were limited to 350 and after one day, 204 were gone. The new craze of the bash was continued with other bashes during the year. As new members poured in with ideas, new life was brought through student activities to the school.

Behind The Scenes Actors aren ' t the only ones who make a show possible. A great deal of time and effort takes place behind the scenes. The Techni¬ cal Service Club worked hard setting up microphones, lights, and other necessary preparations for school assemblies and student play productions. Students came after school and on Saturdays to build, paint, and put the finishing touches on the set for a show. " Although it can be tiring and time consuming, all that work can be rewarding when you finish building something, " commented sophomore Cheryl Lanski. ' The Technical Service Club provides an opportunity for those who don ' t want to perform or didn ' t get in a show, to participate in theater, " stated junior Andy Mills. The club also helped set up and run rentals. Rentals are when an outside group rents out the school auditorium. Club sponsor, Ms. Philibin worked closely with each member, giving directions and showing the technique used when building something for a show. Technical Service Club 157 Time Will Tell 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 . . . , " What ' s his time? " asked all the swimmers, as the members of the Timers Club were ambushed to report the results of the race. Whether the news was good or bad, these volunteer students were required to write the correct times in the record book. Honesty, responsibility, and accuracy are the required characteristics of this group, since the possibility of switching a time was always tempting. Senior Dan Mahan stated, " It ' s fun and tough at the same time. " This summed up the pressure and pleasure felt by th e dedicated timers at every swim meet. Tutors Teach More Than 3Rs Help!!! That seems to be the cry of many stu¬ dents at Niles West. What kind of help do these students mean? They mean academic help. No tears though, there ' s a special club that is offered to anyone who needs help. This is the Tutors Club. Every year students volunteer their time and energy to assist other students who are in distress about their classes. Altogether there are 26 members, sponsored by Ms. Terese Klinger. Five officers helped to schedule and run the af¬ fairs of the club. Tutors Club has given many students the opportunity to improve in their studies through the aid of other students. I hope it continues to grow, " stated Ronna Olney, class of ' 85. When you need help in a certain subject don ' t fret or just give up, all a person needs to do is call on the Tutors Club.

If you are and you want something different, original, and exciting, West of Edens is where it ' s at. West of Edens is an extra-curricular activity, that is in charge of publishing the literary magazine. The magazine contains original drawings, stories, photographs and po¬ ems from students. Junior Sue Lee stated, West of Edens is a vehicle for the students of West to become involved in either the editorial or creative aspects of a literary magazine. Students are encouraged to submit their literary artistic efforts and or to participate in the magazine ' s publication process ' Confided Mrs. Derichs, West of Edens sponsor, " I believe that this year ' s West of Edens could be the best ever. " Art editor John Witte added. There are a lot of students with incredible creative ideas who can and do, use West of Edens as a showcase for their abilities. " West Of Edens 159 Hot Off The Press While many students were learning, eating or studying during mods 20-22, the West Word staff was busy planning and preparing for the publication of their next issue and meeting deadlines. Walking by Room 103 between 12:15 and 1:00, many different sounds could be heard. " Jon ... I have late copy. " " Make sure you get it into Son ' s " " Does anybody have a blue pencil? " " Where are my pictures? " " Did you hear the news? " " I need a headline book. " " Who gets Papa ' s ad? " " Monday ' s copy due. " " Captions help ... " " Samson. " " Mr. Orr, we need your help. " " Get the copy in on time. " " Paste up. " Long hours, cutting, pasting and more were involved in producing the West Word.

The crowds at the wrestling meets changed from week to week, but one group of special people were always help¬ ing out and supporting the wrestlers. These were the Wrestlettes. The Wrestlettes could be seen at every meet taking down the scores of the matches. Two people who helped a great deal in organizing the club were officers Diana Santillian, ' 85, and Andrea Poet, ' 86. The Wrest¬ lettes volunteered their time to the wrestling meets and tournaments. Whether the meets were home or away, the Wrestlettes tried to increase student attendance at the matches. The club is not just an organization to take score at these wrestling matches. " Through the past two years I ' ve seen the Wrestlettes form a strong bond among each other. They are all very energetic about supporting the wrestlers and show a great deal of student spirit, " stated sponsor Lori Barranco. The Wrestlettes, this unique group of people, definitely add spice to the wres¬ tling meets. Wrestlettes 161 Front row : Debbie Virchinsky, Georgia Sotiropoulos, Aida Santillan.

Dr. Don Ring brought the " personal touch " with him as the 4 new principal of Niles West. Experience was br a key factor in the smooth transition. After ! three and one-half years as principal of Jmdk, V Elk Grove High School and six years as the Assistant-Superintendent of Deer- field Highland Park, Ring was more .• than ready, willing and able to meet the challenge. Sitting behind a desk was not the way Ring worked, for throughout the day he spent time in classes, the cafeteria, and hallways. One of the major reactions about me was that people appreciate my visibility, " commented Ring adding, I have found contact with kids in the classroom and in activi¬ ties one of the most enjoyable parts of my job. " After school and evenings Ring spent his time doing such things as listening to seminars with Semin-ars for Scholars and being a judge in the Gong Show. Dr. Ring cared about student interests as he showed at the " Rap with Ring " session by Student Senate, and by bringing his concerns to the Executive Coordinating Council. Ring stated, " I hope kids know that they have access to decisions, for I believe that everyone has the right to be heard and express their opinions. " Goals were set by Ring, one being to maintain the strong academic qualities of the school. " I enjoy working with kids to improve their own goals and expectations in striving for achievement, " commented Ring. A positive aspect of Ring ' s year has been the " personal touch " . Ring said, " A good school portrays a lot of humanness in it. My emphasis has been to try and continue to build on the human relationship that exists in the school. " Ring concluded, " The key to being principal is to spend time listen¬ ing to students, staff and the community. " Clockwise: Dr. Don Ring shows off his Indian spirit and loyalty during his first Homecoming assembly at Niles West. Ring is the captain aboard the Niles West Victory Ship. After attending a Seminar for Scholars program, Dr. Don Ring discusses Bio-chemistry with administrator Jack Lorenz and Seniors Marla Zissman and Lori Tecktiel.

Ring attends numerous extracurricular I unctions and shows his support to everything from the classroom, to athletic events, to clubs and productons. Homecoming was a new experience for the " New Indian Chief " , Dr. Don Ring, as he accepts the football at Homecoming ' 84 from senior Linda Kontos. After the football game cancellation. Ring gave his support to take " lemons and make lemonade " , so Homecoming would be memorable for the student body. Lven though being principal requires a lot of office work. Dr. Don Ring finds time to project a " personal image " , by scouting out the halls and cafeteria in puisuit of student conversation. Students Challenge Board " What does the Board of Education do? " was in the minds of the many curious students who attended the meeting with the School Board. As they discovered, the Board of Education is made up of eight individuals who decide school policies. At the Meeting with the Board, students presented their grievances about the school system. The Board Members explained the reasons behind the policies. Topics such as the new tardy policy, the Student Appeals Board, and the 300 minute school day, were discussed at the meeting during mods 2-4. The Senior Class Cabinet sponsored the meeting and acted as media¬ tors between the groups. Seniors drafted up topics that they felt should be brought up to the Board, allowing time for students and Board Members to comment on the issues. The main reason behind the meeting was for both the Board members and the students to share their viewpoints and allow both groups to try and relate to the other groups opinions. The Board discovered that according to the students, many problems existed within the school system. At the same time, students found out more about the issues and how the Board functions. The Board of Education explained why certain decisions were made, that was - for " the benefit of the Niles Township students. " Both students and Board members strived for that one common goal - to create an improved academic atmosphere for students and faculty. Senior Class President Larry Rivkin commented, " The Meeting with the Board was productive in that it aroused a lot of feelings between the Board and students. " Rivkin added, " It is a process that needs to be continued in the future, because there is still a lot of unfinished business. " Mr. Marcus states his opinion to the rest of the Board while they pay close attention. Many important topics were discussed at the ' Meet the Board " session.

Being a dean is not an easy job. Deans deal with papers, pencils, paper clips, referrals, BACs, Saturday detentions and attendance problems. In fact, being a dean is probably one of the toughest jobs in the school. Three was not a crowd, when Deans Mary Howell, Larry Erickson and Jerry Kupferberg got to¬ gether. Working together the group effectively imple¬ mented the new tardy and attendance policy. Although many students were not in favor of the harsher penal¬ ties, the deans said the policy did it ' s job and cut down absences and tardies in classes. It may have been a rough job being a dean, but the threesome did it with style. Nervously awaiting to see their deans, four victims are ready to hear the verdict. Hopefully their problems will be cleared up and there will be no reason for a Saturday detention or forty-minute BAC assignment.

Computers And Counselors Prepare Students For College ACT ' s, SAT ' s, financial aid, achievement tests, guide books, scholarships and applications all have something to do with applying for colleges. As junior year approached, students were exposed to that whole new thought of COLLEGE! Along with the college scene came the College Counselor Frank Mus- tari. Beginning with PSAT ' s juniors started their search. By tak¬ ing small tests and plugging interests into a computer, stu¬ dents could find out possible careers that would be suitable for them. Other interests such as big or small school, east, west, north or south could be found out through computers also. With this information, the computer could send the students a print out of schools that might suit their needs and read about the school itself and admission requirements. Another asset to the " preparation for college " was the Col¬ lege Resource Center. Everything you ever wanted to or did not want to learn about colleges was in the center run by Counsel¬ or Harry Sortal. Sortal was always ready to get books, show movies, find applications and show slides of campus life at many schools.

Public Speaking and Ad¬ vanced Public Speaking were two courses that students took advantage of among the many English elective courses. Speaking courses began with speaking from seats with mini-topics and advanced to formal persuasive and problem identification speeches. Slowly but surely timid students, once afraid to say a word, were able to speak in front of the audience — their classmates. At first glance into room 120, novice speakers noticed that something was quite different about this room. No, this was not the average classroom with individual desks; for this was a room converted into an auditorium through means of long tables shaped in a " U " and a lectern. The atmosphere was comfortable and as Ms. Molly Magee began each class, stu¬ dents were introduced to a whole new world of teaching. Ma¬ gee began with three things that students needed to learn . . . 1. Trust each other 2. Trust yourself 3. Trust me From the very first day, wheels were in motion for a comfort¬ able semester. Magee summed up Public Speaking when she said, ' ' Public Speaking is more than just speeches, for it im¬ proves students one-to-one and one-to-group communication skills, eliminates stage fright, and refines writing abilities. " Speaking in front of a group may be the number one fear in this country but gradually, more and more Public Speaking and Advanced Public Speaking students overcame the phobia. - " SK- k Books arc piled high, as senior Mel Speisman studies dilligently before Arnold Agnos-Media Center Barbara Anderson-English Charles Anderson-Social Studies William Apostal-Science Jean Armour-Physical Education John Armour-Physical Education George Bauer-Physical Education John Beeftink-Science 170 Academics Agnos — Beeftink Dressed for a special dress day, Mr. Albiani explains psychology upside-down to interested seniors, Carl Czernik and Joe Klancnik. e o Credit Before College Challenging, inventive and mind-boggling may seem like words that describe a Rubik ' s cube, but playing with colored-cubes can ' t get you college credit - A.P. COURSES can! Advanced Placement courses were offered in many subjects. College credit could be received in anything from Art to Calculus. Advanced Placement courses gave students of advanced ability the opportunity to take college level classes while still in high school. Although the classes may not have been easy, the rewards were worth the effort. As May rolled around, so did the A.P. tests where the long hours of study could pay off for A.P.ers. A " 5 " was what students hoped for on the test. Even if they did not score a " 5 " , chances were they would receive some college credit depending on the college A.P. students had a lot of opinions on A.P. courses " A.P.

The students receive one credit for classroom and one credit for an outside job. C.V.E. provides students with the opportunity to get jobs not only for extra money, but also for valuable exper¬ ience. " C.V.E. helped me learn more about my¬ self and the world we work in, " stated senior Marty Golenzer. Some of the positions included: salespeople, office workers, gas station attendants, stock peo¬ ple, medical assistants, insurance clerks, cash¬ iers, and restaurant workers. The students usual¬ ly left for work around 1:00. Periodically, the workers were evaluated by their employers and teachers to insure punctuality, proper dress, reg¬ ular attendance, and responsibility for complet¬ ing assigned tasks. As wage earners, the students developed appreciation and respect for their work experience. " Hola, " says Spanish teacher Joe Brennan wearing his favorite sheet for a toga.

Of course these skills were not learned by high school students, but rather by the three-year-olds that attended West ' s own nursery school run by students. Child Development allowed high school students to run a nursery school on the second floor of the building. Twice a week the small pre-schoolers walked through the big halls. Once the students reached room 02C, they ran to their favorite corner of the room to play in. The first activity of the day was art time, when the kids painted, colored and made projects. Two of their favorite projects were stencils of their bodies and painted macaroni necklaces. Any day would not be complete without a snack, and that was when animal crackers and graham crackers were served. After snacks, it was circle time, when the day ' s story was told. Some stories were about pets and others were favorite fairytales. More play time, songs and exercises completed the day at school. The " teachers " dressed the students in their coats and walked them down¬ stairs to meet their parents. Hebrew teacher Mr. Alex Miron dictates a story to be translated during an oral test.

These are some of the things you may hear as you are behind the wheel in the Chevrolet Celebrity with your friendly drivers ed teacher beside you. Behind-the-wheel is an unforgetable experience for both the instructor and the student. If the student thinks he she has it bad, think about that poor instructor that has to sit beside a beginner at least five times a day. While it is a nerve-wracking experience for the two, both the instructor and the student seem to survive. As a student is driving, one of the hardest things to deal with is knowing that your teacher is constantly watching your every move. Forgetting about your mistakes is impossible because the instructor is forever jotting down every little fault you make. It is important to keep your eyes on the road, for one false move could be hazardous to you and your instructors health. Behind-the-wheel is definitely a high school experience to remember.

Trying to get out of trouble will just get you in deeper, just grin and bare it and remind yourself that things could be worse. The newest member of the force, Sandra Berkowitz, was asked about her new job. When approached, she responded “It was tough, but I thought it was an enlightening experience in the end. Yes, it can be tough job, but somebody ' s got to do it. " So, just remember the next time you walk down the hall, security guards are around.

Custodians Maintain School Grounds Ever notice how clean the halls and bathrooms are? As everyone knows, it ' s easier to make a mess than to clean it up. However, it has to be done, and it is done by the hard working custodial staff. Thanks to them, students can walk down spot¬ less hall ways and eat in a clean cafeteria. Did you ever wonder about what happened to all the garbage that falls out of your locker when you open it up on a Monday morning? The custodians are constantly on the move day and night. If it wasn ' t for the custodians the school would probably end up looking like our bedrooms at home. That could be a very messy sight! Front row Gene Healy, Mike Irwin, Barry Dixon, Tony LaMantia.

The clerical staff is made up of a group of hard working woman whose se tasks range from supervising the resource centers to secretarial work for the deans and counselors. Students benefit greatly by having the services of the office personnel who provide them with infor¬ mation that would otherwise be difficult to acquire. A lot of times the office personnel are over-looked by the student body, but they play an important role in the produc¬ tion of every school day. ° Studying, Studying: Give Me A Break! The quest for knowledge often leads people to strange and exotic places. While the library, an¬ nex, resource centers and cafeteria are semi-ideal places to do homework, other students find less popular, more creative places, most convenient. For instance, some students will go almost anywhere to be alone when they are studying. Occasionally walking around the school you can find students studying in their cars, the court¬ yard, gym and even garbage cans. There are many places that students study. " I once studied while pumping iron in the weight room " said senior David Levine. " I go to room 309 during my free periods because no one is in there, " said senior Neal Rosenblum. " I study in homeroom, " said senior Matt Unterbugger. " I once studied in the first floor washroom by the Dean ' s office, " said senior Bill Kornit. " Walking down the hallway to public speaking, I write my speeches, " said senior Patty Gunchick. No matter where the place, studying is an im¬ portant part of education. Many students com¬ plained saying Studying, Studying give me a break! Concentration is needed by sophomore Ellen Epstein in order to achieve perfection. The library annex ' s atmosphere is a perfect studying and reading place for freshman Art Sanchez. In Dedication The Academics Section Has Been Dedicated In Memory Of Mrs. Barbara Fleming - Choir Instructor " Barbara Fleming was one of the finest professionals to walk through the doors of Niles West ' said Band Director Bill Koch. Barbara Fleming was originally from Billington, Iowa. She attended Northwestern University, where she received her Bachelors.and Masters degrees in Applied-Piano. Fleming graduated with top hon¬ ors, having been awarded a solo spot at her Commencement exercises. Fleming went on to do church work at Central Methodist Church and she became a faculty member at the North Shore Community Center. In 1966 Barbara Fleming joined the music department at Lincoln Jr. High as both the vocal and general music teacher. Fleming ' s excellent work proved to be the backbone of the incoming freshmen to the Niles West Choir. Fleming left Lincoln in 1983 to take over the Choral Director position when Hugh McGee retired. Mrs. Fleming was not a newcomer to Niles West. Since 1973 she had been busy with performances of " Godspell " , " Oklahoma " , and various other performances put on by the theater department. Barbara married Clem Fleming, the Band Director at Lincoln Jr. High School. Susan and Peter, their children, went to Niles West and attended Northwestern University majoring in music. " It is unfortunate that she could not continue the excellent contributions she made at Lincoln and West " , said co-worker Ted Kait- chuck. Past students of Mrs. Fleming remember her with fondest memories. Senior Nikki Rich said, " She was an extremely talented musician as well as a fine teacher. " Mrs. Barbara Fleming died July 13,1984. All of the students and staff she worked with had great respect and admiration for her and the contributions she gave to school.

Usually it does not go off, so at 7:15 your dad comes in wakes you up. You get up, put some clothes on, and ask your dad to drive you to school. By the time you get to your locker, you have already missed homeroom and part of your first class. While put¬ ting your books away, you realize that you have forgotten your math assignment that counts for half of your grade. You then go to the telephone to call your mom, when you realize that you forgot your wallet at home. While heading back to your locker you wonder what else could possibly go wrong, when a security guard stops you and asks to see your I.D. Reaching into your pocket, you remember that you forgot your wallet at home. You tell the security guard that you forgot it at home, but he does not believe a word you say. Two hours later, the secretary lets you go inside to see the dean. You tell the dean the same story you tried to tell the security guard. The dean lets you go because it was your first offense. Finally something has gone your way. While walking out the door, the dean stops you and says that you were marked absent, and it was unexcused. The dean also says that you have to serve two Saturdays because you missed all of your classes. You are going to flunk math, have a record, and have to serve two Saturdays just because you did not want to wake up at 6:00 a.m. Monday morning. Depak Sathy ' 87 Freshmen 193 " High Schoolitis " Hits Freshmen After eight years, they finally made it to high school. It was a long wait, but it was worth it. Moving on was not as easy as it seemed. There was always that disease that traveled among incoming freshmen. Some called it the " High School Jitters, " but it was more common¬ ly referred to as " High Schoolitis. " High school was very different from junior high. Moving from a big eighth grader to a little " freshie " was an uncom¬ fortable change. There was a lot more homework and, in some classes, more pressure. One of the major changes was moving from a tiny Junior High to Niles West, with over 2,000 people. There were hundreds of new people to meet. Freshman Cindy Gesklin remembered, " I came from a small school so it was both scary and exciting moving into West with so many people. " In the beginning, freshmen felt like they would never make it, but after a couple of weeks, they felt like they had been here all of their lives and suddenly, they were mysteri¬ ously cured of that awful disease, " High Schoolitis. " Amy Grimaldi ' 88 The West word intrigues freshman Jov Grossberg, who still finds time to read the news no matter how much she is carrying.

Well, it ' s a long story. You like long stories? It all started when I missed the bus and had to walk to school. I was strolling along Oakton Street when I noticed a little boy wandering into the middle of the morning traffic. With my quick reflexes, I ran to the boy, who was about to be struck by this giant steam roller, picked him up and got him to safety just in time. All was safe except for my backpack. I looked into the middle of the street with tears in my eyes hoping that the steam roller had missed it. To my dismay, I found my backpack, which contained my homework, as flat as a pan¬ cake. Alas, that is the truth. " That truth got me four hours of detention. I thought my story was original, but Mr. Lopez said he had heard it a hundred times. I really try to do my homework, but I can only spend five minutes at a time with it, then I need an hour break for T.V. It ' s a no-win situation. Either you do your homework and your dog eats it or you don ' t do it and he eats it.

Freshmen Beware Many freshmen worry about starting high school. The wor¬ ry is often caused by juniors and seniors who sometimes forget that they once were freshmen, and consequently pass on many pranks. Pranks, practical jokes and one-liners played on freshmen were numerous and often insulting. The trick to keeping the upperhand on upperclassmen is to pretend that it does not bother you and eventually the senior or junior will give up. To avoid falling victim to the " Senior Prank, " beware of these initatives: do not buy elevator passes and do not accept directions on how to find a class, or you will end up at Room 02F. (For your personal knowledge, there is no Room 02F.) Another common prank is throwing pennies at unsuspect¬ ing Freshmen. Take cover and do not walk under stairwells. Seniors can be sly; beware of standing by an open locker, for you may be forced inside and spend up to three to four days in the locker before someone realizes what has happened to you. Beware of the sweat pants that you wear. Ask yourself these two questions. Should you A) wear sweats with draw strings? or B) wear cute underwear? Seniors are quick, they have de- pantsed many a frosh before. Ever since " Saturday Night Live " the Bill Murry " nuggies " have come. Careful, freshmen, " nuggies " can hurt, especially if repeated on numerous occasions. Wear a hat and keep your head low. Now that you know how the seniors and juniors play their pranks, watch out and keep both your eyes and ears open.

" I use to sing this song when I was a Brownie in the third grade. Those were the good old days. I was care-free, with no worries except trying to be in the " In " group. Now that I have grown up and reached high school the last thing I need on my mind is my friends. It is hard to worry about friends when you have tons of homework, exams, and projects to be done. Since the first day of my freshman year I was worried about making friends, and making sure I didn ' t lose touch with my friends from junior high. I was terrified! There were so many people, it was mind boggling. When I walked into my home¬ room I slapped on a big smile and I ' d say hello to everybody. I felt like the biggest loser because everybody was friends, they all knew each other from jr. high. I sat twiddling my thumbs for ten minutes talking to myself. Once the bell rang I ' d be the first one out the door. In between classes was the best part of the day for me. This time was my only chance to catch my sanity. Walking to class I would see my old friends, for I had not made any new ones yet. I stopped and talked for the five wonderful, glorious minutes I had. As time went by I started making new friends by just saying " hello " . People who I thought were big snobs were the friend¬ liest people. I found out making new friends did not mean losing the old ones. So it just goes to show, all it takes is a friendly hello and a smile.

Sophomores " mapped-out " , and enjoying the fact that they were ring ton, Dene Abrams and Diane 202 Sophomores-Division Sophomores — Class Of ' 87 Tom Abelson Dena Abrams Bettina Adam Shannon Adams Jeanie Ahn Michele Alday David Allen Dealing With Problems Lisa arrives home forty minutes late after attending a friend ' s party. As she walks in the door her parents start questioning and yelling at her. " It ' s already one in the morning. Where have you been? " " You are grounded from using the car for one month, young lady. " Suddenly what had been a fun Saturday night turns into pure misery. Lisa runs to her room, slams the door, and wishes she had never been born. Lisa is no different than most teenagers. Everyone has problems and fights with his or her parents once in a while. However each teenager has his or her own way of dealing with these problems. Feeling sorry for yourself is one of the most popular yet least effective approaches. Wishing for new parents or a different life usually makes the person more unhappy than the argument itself. Frustrations are often taken out on friends. They tend to be yelled at or sometimes they have to listen to hours worth of reasons why YOU are right and your parents are wrong. Then there are those teenagers who realize that talking to their parents in a calm, rational way could help the situa¬ tion. Instead of crying and complaining they simply express their feelings openly. Parents tend to listen more intently to a mature, reasonable conversation than an outburst of tears and complaints. So next time you feel your world collapsing around you because of problem parents, calmly express your feelings and COMPROMISE. Remember, your par¬ ents have feelings and are human, too.

Tina forces one eye open, glances at the time, then presses the snooze button for that extra ten minutes. Now, at 6:10, Tina drags herself out of bed and into the shower. Doing her daily routi ne, Tina puts on her classic Levi blue jeans, an ideal sweatshirt revealing a college em¬ blem, slips on her gym shoes, then goes down for breakfast. It ' s toast and orange juice, once again. Glancing at the clock Tina flips up the collar on her polo, grabs her jacket and runs out to catch the bus. Do you think you are typical? Take this survey and find out. I sleep until: A) My alarm clock goes off B) My mother wakes me up C) The bus comes D) I never wake up. I ' m asleep all day E) Other For lunch I eat: A) Cafeteria food B) At McDonald ' s C) My lunch from home D) Nothing E) Other If you picked letter E for every answer CONGRATULA¬ TIONS! All other answers were very typical. Before going to school you could always go jogging. For breakfast why don ' t you and some friends order a pizza and make them deliver it to the cafe. Be different, it could be lots of fun. Who knows, maybe you will start a new, not so typical trend.

Reaching for the mouthwash and accidentally gargling with Sea Breeze! Getting to school and realizing your purple pinned striped pants don ' t match your orange polka dot sweater! When halfway through English class you realize you grabbed your little brothers " Dick and Jane take Spot to the Zoo " rather than Shakespeare ' s " Macbeth! " Gummy Bears for breakfast! Being a senior and asking a freshman how to get to the cafe! Dealing with the comments people make about your wild, punked out hair style, because you did not have time to wash your hair. Begging your mother to call in for you! Explaining to your dean that you thought there was no school because of the hurricane in Texas! Feeding your dog goldfish food!

The pom¬ pon girls had a great season, filled with well executed dance routines. Illnesses Attack Students These are the typical illnesses of many Niles West stu¬ dents: 1. Shoulder Shlump- caused by carrying an overloaded backpack over one shoulder. 2. Stomache Syndrome- begins approximately one half- hour after consuming cafeteria food. 3. Senioritis- the well-known disease that attacks unsu¬ specting seniors, causing laziness and total apathy to¬ wards school. 4. The Hair Habit- a common disorder among teenagers, afflicting them with uncontrollable impulses to flip their hair back, constantly comb their hair, or look in the mirror to check their looks. 5. Studly Strut- found among many " jocks " who find the need to impress others, often the Hair Habit females. 6. Estudiante Epidemic- students with foreign language as part of their curriculum unknowingly insert foreign expressions, such as " Adios amigos ' " Guten tag, " or " Etonjour amies " into their daily conversations. 7. Computer Complexion- the neon glow that radiates from the faces of computer-oriented students. 8. Secret Scribbler- the artists who feel compelled to make doodles or scratch words (often obscene) into their desks, usually a direct result of extreme boredom. 9. The Slow Stroller- a common nuisance to the traffic flow in the hallways, these people impede the journeys of others as they walk at one-tenth the normal speed. 10. Procastinating Pupils- the complement to the Slow Stroller, these students are always rushing off some¬ where, often to a class that began five minutes earlier. 11. Indian Illness- temporary insanity, lasting for a period of four years, driving students to spirited acts, such as the smearing of war paint across the face.

You hop in and out of the shower, blow dry your hair half way, and quickly walk to your room. You stop in front of the closet. Clothes. What are you going to wear? You rum¬ mage through your wardrobe and pull out the first thing you get your hands on. You run from room to room gathering all of your books and speed to the kitchen and stick two pop tarts in the toaster. It ' s now 6:40. You grab the half-cooked breakfast you have prepared and rush out the door. In the process, your shoe slips off and you stop to pick it up. As the busdriver begins to pull away, he sees you running at full speed toward the corner. You climb up the stairs of the bus and feel everyone ' s eyes on you. You suddenly remember that you have one shoe on, when one of your enemies points out that you have two different socks on. As the bus approaches the school, you see two people. As you get a closer look, you recognize the two figures as your best friend and your boyfriend. This is definitely not your day. Trying to forget about your boy problems, you look for¬ ward to getting back the history final exam that you were sure you got an " A " on. The teacher passes out the tests and as she hands you yours, she gives you a disappointing stare. Your stomach begins to churn. You ' re scared to look at the grade but you peek through the paper and almost cry at the sight of a " D " written on the top. The last bell rings at 2:45 and you jog to the bus. As you sit down with a pile of books on your lap, you realize that you would have been better off staying in bed. Just another one of those days. 224 Juniors Amy Grimaldi ' 88 Before the bell rings, junior Aneshia Winter is kept entertained when she watches fellow classmates.

On this day though, junior Joe Lochner finds no time to talk to friends as he thinks about his upcoming game. Bubble Trouble Soap operas came to Niles West in a flurry of who did what to who. It was common to hear in the halls, " What is going on in " General Hospital? " ' Students tried to schedule their lunch mods around their favorite soaps. This enabled them to go home and watch the action. Other students taped the soaps to watch after school. Students who got out at 2:30 made it home in time to see the last fifteen minutes of General Hospital. Less fortunate students could always rely on the night¬ time soaps. Dynasty, Dallas, Knot ' s Landing and Paper Dolls proved to be favorites among students and teachers alike. " My favorite television shows are Dynasty and Dal¬ las, " said sophomore Diane Smason adding, " I don ' t watch anything else during the week except these nighttime soaps. " Students watched soaps for different reasons. Janet Rabin said, " I watch soaps because they keep my interest. You can ' t take them too seriously, but you can still have a good time watching them. " Rabin ' s favorite soap was All My Children. " I get so into them and I love watching these people who have so many problems, " said junior Michelle Burdeen. While some students took soaps a little too seriously, staying home just to see an episode and scheduling their lives around the soaps, if watched in proper amounts, soaps can be a fun, light form of entertainment. Soap operas are here to stay. If you are a " soap " fan, have fun and by the way, " Did you know that Luke and Laura are back on General Hospital?

SENIORS " . The Seniors rise to their feet and exclaim the chant over and over again. By far the seniors out spirit the rest of the classes. There seems to be such a strong bond when senior year rolls around that it is impossible to miss. That " bond " seems to really start during junior year. Junior year is a time that the students " must " seriously start to think. There are PSAT ' s, ACT ' s, SAT ' s, and consideration of future plans. The workload is tough but you know you ' ll live through it. Junior Paulette Arvanitis states, " Junior year is tense, there are a lot of things to be done but you know it ' ll be over soon, and there will be a time to kick back and have some fun! " Once the tension is gone, all that ' s left is relief. All that relief turns into pure WEST spirit. The Indi¬ an mascot turns to the side of the Juniors now and chants " JUNIORS JUNIORS " as loud as he can, but it ' s only second. Their competition is tough. No fear though, every¬ one knows next year that once those juniors turn into sen¬ iors that they ' ll be first. Sunny Park ' 86 Juniors 229 MT-Sp t?

Spirit is alive in the class of 85 ' , is a statement that boldly describes the senior class. Although school had only been in session for three days, the seniors went all out to show their enthusiasm. Throughout the halls, many seniors sported Hawaiian dress to show their sup¬ port for the very first football game of the season. The Hawaiian day was the first of many dress-up days to come. In the following weeks, seniors were spotted in the halls bearing togas, ties, and painted faces. The spirit of the seniors did not remain just within school halls. At football games seniors Andy Baker, Robert Gershbein, and Brad Kolar were easily picked out of the crowd with their faces painted with the traditional red and white war¬ paint. Seniors also stole first prize at many ail-school cheer¬ ing contests and heavily participated an all homecoming activities. At all athletic events, seniors were always there to cheer on their fellow classmates. This new-found spirit at West encouraged the football players to play their hardest and the cheerleaders to cheer their loudest. With the leadership of Senior Indian Mascot Barry Gurvey, members of the class of eighty-five bonded together not only to support their peers at athletic events, but also during day to day activities. " It ' s great to be a part of the enthusiasm, " seniors Lauri Balbirer and Julie Huber agree that this class brought the fun back into school and that this class has more spirit than any other class. According to one spirited member Brad Kolar, " Senior spirit started out slowly, but I ' m happy to see that it picked up immediately, Indeed, it is quite exciting to see all of this spirit belonging to one class - a class I ' m proud to call my own.

Here, Auerbach displays hi rabec irueckert Buehler with the sounding of the homeroom bell at Most seniors at this time are tired from whatever they c the night before and navigate the halls in a semi-stupor. Others seek their friends for the daily gossip update. The first class of the day usually is the slowest, and the students are wondering why they are up at such an un¬ godly hour. Going from one class to another, the day gradually picks up, and they start looking forward to their lunch periods. Underclassmen have to bear with the infamous Niles West Cafeteria food, but many lucky seniors escape by going out for lunch. Most seniors go to McDonalds, Abe ' s on Lincoln or Burger King ' ex¬ plained senior Russell Edidin The mods directly after lunch are excruciating for some seniors, especially after eating at Abe ' s. Take it from experience, " said senior Mike Lorenz, Don t get the ' Gettysburger ' , it makes the old stomach raunch in your next class. " The fun and beneficial classroom activities end around 2:45 p.m., and the extra-curricular activities begin. All students involved with these activities are enthusiastic and ready to take on any challenge. Others have job obligations to fulfill. Some seniors just lay around at home after school and vegetate. " Well, I like to sit around the house for a while and watch ' Inspector Gadget " with my bowl of Captain Crunch, confided Jordan Klinsky. Many seniors spend their last waking hours working hard on their school work. Homework is a major priority r seniors, at least until their letter of acceptance arrives.

Barry, a senior and the presi¬ dent of his class last year made such an impression on the school that critics and supporters alike agreed that Barry gave the school a new-found spirit, the likes of which hadn ' t been seen for years. Barry decided to try out for the school mascot last year when he realized that there just wasn ' t that much school spirit around. " It didn ' t seem right to me to see people having some of the best years of their life here, and not even cheering for their football team, " said Gurvey. When he heard the announcement for the school mascot tryouts, Barry jumped at the chance and hasn ' t regretted his decision since. " It just gives me such a good feeling when I get the crowd cheering and see people really getting into the game. " According to Mr. Turry, athletic director, " Barry defi¬ nitely had a very positive effect on the players. He ' s a great kid and the players really respected and appreciated him. " " This was a landmark year, " Barry said. " Attendance for sports was up and people were catching that school- spirit fever more than ever. " Gurvey continued, " These four years will probably be some of the best years in my life and I ' m glad I had them here at Niles West. ' Barry ' s advice to underclassmen: " Take advantage of all four years at West, because it really is a once in a lifetime adventure. " And in the immortal words of the " Gurv " : " Give me an I Give me a N,D,I,A,N,S; What does that spell? INDIANS!!! " Mark Gussin 87 Depak Sathy ' 87 Seniors 237 Academically, Niles West is one of the most outstand¬ ing schools in the mid-west. It is evident because thirteen West students proved so in the 1985 National Merit Competition. More than a million students from all over the country entered. According to the bulletin, " Informa¬ tion About the Competition: 1985 Merit Scholarships " each state takes the PSAT Selection Index scores of all eligible participants, lists them in descending order, and those students that score at or above the state " s assigned number are named as part of 15,000 Semi-finalists. Students must then meet additional requirements to be chosen as finalists. Approximately 13,000 Semi-finalists were expected to become finalists, but only forty percent of those who reach finalist standing, or some 5,000 people would be awarded Merit Scholarships. ' " The Niles West National Merit winners have excelled in the primary task of this school — learning. We applaud their achievement and share in their pride over this accomplishment, " stat¬ ed Dr Ring. V Cohen-Doyle Debbie Cohen - . .

I can clearly remember get¬ ting lost in the hallways, meeting new faces, and the joy of finally becoming a " high school student. " The sen¬ iors seemed so self-assured as they strolled down the hallways or sped through the parking lot in their cars. It seemed as though they had it all .... As sophomore year approached, I felt a sudden boost of maturity. We were no longer the " low-lifes " we had once been. However, finding one ' s identity was still a bit difficult that year. I watched my classmates as they transformed themselves into such Niles West expres¬ sions as " burnout, " " jock, " or " prep. " Junior year suddenly came, and along with it we were given an honorary " upperclassmen " status. We were faced with pressures of ACT ' s and class ranks. Driving to school for the first time was one memorable exper¬ ience that year. I think it was at that moment I realized I would soon be a senior .... Now that our senior year has arrived, most of us admit we are where we have longed to be. But as this year progresses, I can honestly say that being a senior demands a lot more responsibility than one may realize. Of course it ' s fun to dress Hawaiian and bombard the freshmen with pennies, but many seniors are concerned with the life they will face after graduation. Whether at college or work, seniors will be thrown into the real world and this is their last chance to prepare. Karen Yashon Seniors be alone, senior Barbara Kassel catches up on last minute homew ents take advantage of off-campus privileges when weather permits Seniors Hallway Love »JI is a story about a girl named Mary. Mary is an innocent victim of a high school syndrome called HALL¬ WAY LOVE. Mary has had a rough day. It all started like this .... 7:30 a.m., Mary tries to get about the cafeteria and then through the dense hallway crowds. On her journey all through the day, she encounters some strange, totally gnarly situations. At first, they are nothing to get excited about, just some harmless pecks on the cheek of some comrades by their boyfriends. 8:45 a.m., Mary asks her study teacher for permission to go back to her locker, the elevator she hears some romantic giggling. As the happy couple she suddenly feels very ible. , Mary ' s next encounter is a " First Love, " Some people ' s first love may be a pet or even iend, but Mary ' s is a taffy apple. Mary has iat the school is sponsoring a " buy an apple for charity " sale. When Mary arrives at the end of the hallway to purchase her favorite, she believes that noth¬ ing can stand in her way; not even the boy and girl at the front of the line who happen to be intimately sharing an apple. Some people will stop at nothing to get what they want however, Mary is no exception. Unfortunately, her invade and conquer plan somewhat backfires and all she ends up with for trying to separate the candied-apple kissers is a head full of carmel, and two of the unhappiest faces in the world - certainly creating a sticky situation. There is a lesson to be learned from Mary ' s grueling trek: Don ' t get in the way of these hallway cassanovas, just let them sail down the hallway of love Laurie Adams ' 86 Seniors Riders Perform Paper Capers Seniors John Hennessy Denise Herman Ronald Hirsch Tim Hoeft Kevin Johanson Lynda Jutovsky Nancy Johnson Demonstrating his unique shaving technique is senior Jack Dahm.

Seniors Get Taste Of College Life Going West? Going East? Or just staying in the Mid¬ west? That is the question that is in the minds of many seniors. To narrow down their choices, every weekend many Niles West seniors flock to various universities like the University of Illinois, Michigan State University, the University of Iowa, and Indiana University, to see what each has to offer. This also helps them get acquaint¬ ed with " college life " and what awaits them in the future. Others visit the schools to buy out the local book- es, updating their wardrobes and filling up their so- ed " empty closets " with sweatshirts, T-shirts and sweatpants with college imprints on them. As senior Nikki Rich explained, " I love to wear sweats to school because they are comfortable and now that I ' m a senior, I don ' t have to worry about how I dress.

Many seniors enjoy going to a Niles West sporting event like a Friday night football game, while others use the game as a place to find out the " after game action " I always enjoy a good party after a football game, " senior Frank Epstein. " If there aren t any parties, most seniors make their own, or they just find something until wake up early Saturday afternoon, " he added Weekends are great times for seniors to put in hours at their jobs in order to make money for college. It ' s hard for me to work during the week, because of the homework load, but Saturday and Sunday afternoons are perfect, because I make money and still have time to go out at night, " said Osco employee Julie Keller. Other seniors prefer their weekends to be a time of relaxation. " After going to school and to work five days a week, thirteen hours a day, I find Saturdays and Sundays the perfect days to relax til my heart is content, ' plained Tony Sherman, senior class vice-president.

A file cabinet once filled to capacity with photos has been ransacked by editors, staff and pic ture-nappers. There are no croppers. The typewriters still don ' t work well. Amidst the carbon sheets and broken orange cropping pen¬ cils, the Spectrum Staff sits back and laughs at the memories of putting together 10719 ' 84- ' 85. Marlow, in the Heart of Darkness, put it best when he said, " They can only see the mere show, and never can tell what it really means. " When the Spectrum comes out each year, people who read it see completed pages that took many hours and people to produce. Only the editors and staff know the work involved in order to produce a book for Niles West students and faculty to be proud of. Please remember ... To err is human. Sorry if we mispelled your names. The entire staff deserves commendation for not only doing what the editors asked of them, but for putting up with me, " fall deliver " , and our " We have to talk serious¬ ly " talks. Responsibility to meet deadlines rested on the editors, and they met them (sooner or later). Anna Karalis and Jenny Smith became known as the staff comedians. The twosome spent hours typing the Senior Surveys and put¬ ting together Seniors with style in the first deadline. Laurie Adams (Super Woman) not only did the Under¬ class Section, but also helped with the Academics Section. Leah Seef was the " incredible indexer " and another Un¬ derclass Editor. Melinda Ring and Linda Kontos piz- zazzed up the Clubs Section and answered many " dead¬ line phone calls " . Stephanie Leader (Don ' t Worry I ' ll make the Deadline Editor) made every deadline and cap¬ tured the events in the Happenings Section. Diana Santil- lan (I need pictures editor) put together spectacular Sports Section with new layouts and " action copy " . Nikki Rich and Michelle Burdeen got the pictures taken, sometimes three and four times. Lisa Sandlow proofed the copy that was sometimes filled with spelling and typing errors. Paula Krone did the amazing Academics Section with no previous experience. Jackie Sirajullah did more than just keep me laughing with his sarcasm and quoted pictures of Jim King. Even at 2:00 a.m. working on the color section, we still managed to have some great laughs, chokes and falls. Sharon Krone proofed the copy, Josten ' s Re¬ presentative Dennis Eder answered the many questions and Senor Orr did yearbook (even on newspaper time). Orr not only supplied the answers, but the Diet Coke, sugarless candies and gum as well. Although it seemed that we would never complete the Spectrum ' s 296 pages, we did it by working together and " Mapping it Out " deadline after deadline. Julie Keller Editor-in-Chief Clockwise - Sports Editor senior Diana Santillan shows off her dyna¬ mite new design for the sports sec¬ tion to junior David Bloom, Advisor Jerome Orr and Design Editor Jackie Sirajullah. Focussing in on the action in the yearbook room, junior David Bloom captures the moment. Bloom was not only a staff photographer, but a staff reporter for all sections of the book. While Happenings Editor junior Stephanie Leader picks out last minute photos. Copy Editor junior Lisa Sandlow and junior Sunny Park make up captions for the page. 290 Spectrum Staff Counter clockwise - While Club ' s Editor junior Melinda Ring sketches out plans for the clubs ' section, Assistant Clubs ' Editor senior Linda Kontos, Design Editor senior Jackie Sirajullah and Assistant Seniors ' Editor senior Jenny Smith take time out to think about designs for their own pages. After the Underclass Section of the Spectrum is finished, junior Laurie Adams spends time helping junior Paula Krone with the Academics Section. After spending hours typing the Senior Surveys, seniors Jenny Smith and Anna Karalis look through pictures to include in the section. " Index work " is very tedious, but with the help of sophomore Jill Hedrich, sophomore Leah Seef ' s job is a lot easier. Separate Ways As June finally arrived, students and faculty saw the results of their year planned out. Looking back we see a calendar filled with special dates and memorable events. Along the journey we recall such sights as the first days of school. While some students were getting used to the new route, others were working on their last journey through this " Indian Territory " . Midway along the year ' s path, " West Travelers " stopped at such sights as: The First Friday Night Bash, The Boston Pops Concert, Shorts and Sunglasses Day, Homecoming Week, and the Battle of the Bands. As months passed, traffic changed and signals showed that an exit to a new route was up ahead. Signs directed " student journeyers " to Fi¬ nals, Prom and Graduation. This path, Niles West, is only a small part of the map of life. For un¬ derclassmen, this path continues with more stops to be made up ahead before departure. Yet for seniors, this path prepared them for a greater road, with more stops to be made along the jour¬ ney. Their itinerary ahead will take more careful planning and perhaps w ill include some detours and road¬ blocks. But the experience gained in " INDIAN TERRITORY " will provide the knowledge and foresight needed throughout life ' s journey and " MAP¬ PING IT OUT " . Right: Encouragement . Whenever Earl ' s Girls need¬ ed a little pep talk, Coach Gene Earl was there. Senior Nancy Johnson listens intently to Earl ' s words. Below: Team work Whether l Indians were winning or losing, their teammates were always by their side. Here fresh¬ man Sue Rubenstein cheers her team¬ mate on to victory. Right: Loyalty . . . Whether at basketball games or track meets, fans could be seen cheering our team to victory. 292 Departure Far right: Unity . . .

Below: Against the odds Holding tight to the ball, this Indian player is buried by a tough defensive line. Below: Entertainment The Unknown Comic helped make the Gong Show a memorable night. Departure 293 Right: Aggressiveness . . . Volleyball may just be another game, but to senior David Levine, the fight for victory can be seen by his expression. Above: Emotion . . After all the hard work of learning and perfecting routines, all that is left for the pom-pon girls are the memories of all the " good times” they have shared. Above left to right: Silently supporting . Al¬ though they are on the bench juniors Mushtaq Ikramullah and Mitch Ratnow, along with Coach Dave Hart, share all the feelings of the Varsity Basketball players. Returning home . . .

Hours of hard work were put into every performance by the Marching Band. Here junior David Ru¬ bin perfects his trumpet skills. Right: Studying Finding a spot where she can study with music is freshman Traci Dreier. Mapping Out ’ 84-’85 A bus route, a blueprint, and a schedule give directions to all. These maps were followed from school ' s start in the fall. Classes were attended, grades, ranks and scores stu¬ dents know, Students attended HAPPENINGS from Bart Conner to the Gong Show. Athletes set records, many cruised down state, SPORTS were competitive, the Indians first rate. Join, fundraise, and plan in groups AFS to the Band, All of these CLUBS were found in Indian land. ACADEMICS included classes and teachers too. Some took computers and advanced courses were new. FRESHMEN found that meeting each other was lots of fun. First high school classes and assemblies were done. SOPHOMORES were already adjusted to school. Now driving their cars was " totally cool! " JUNIORS began looking towards college and more, ACT ' s, SAT ' s and applications were in store. SENIORS planned for that special graduation day, Memories of West and their friends will always stay. As school began in September, in June summer was alive. This was the MAPPING OUT of the years 1984-85. Julie Keller ' 85 Departure 295 Below: Planning . . . Whether in art class or out on the football field, making plans is vital in achieving perfection. Above: Having Good Times . School can be a place for fond memories as well as hard work. Here, freshmen Marybeth Brocar and Kris Scaletta “kid around " before their gym class. Defeat . . . Senior Deanne Zych expresses her sorrow after failing to return a serve. Below: Spirit During Homecoming week students could be seen in the cafeteria participating in such activities as flipper races. Right: Victory . . . Showing determination as he scores two points is senior Jack Dahm. “Two roads diverged in a wood, and 1 — I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference. ” Departure Robert Frost
