A Silve Celebration 5 IT ALL HAPPENED ON MIKE BASRAK FIELD r ’ • 1985-1986 was definitely the year of football for Chicago and although our own team went 3-6 it hasn ' t always been that way. In the past twenty-five years we have definitely had some winning teams. Here are the records of the Niles West football team for the last quarter of a decade. 1985-3 wins 6 losses 1984-3 wins 6 losses 1983-2 wins 6 losses 1982-2 wins 7 losses 1981-7 wins 3 losses 1980-6 wins 3 losses 1979-3 wins 6 losses 1978-no record 1977-6 wins 3 losses 1976-4 wins 5 losses 1975-6 wins I loss 2 ties 1974-7 wins I loss 1973-6 wins 2 losses sv ' (CO Indian quarterback sen¬ iors, Rick Maybrun, re¬ ceives the snap and decides to run the ball down field by himself. 1972-9 wins 0 losses 1971-6 wins 2 losses 1970-5 wins 4 losses 1969-no record 1968-5 wins 3 losses 1967-7 wins I loss 1966-5 wins 3 losses 1965-3 wins 8 losses 1964-4 wins 4 losses 1963-5 wins 3 losses 1962-7 wins I loss 1961-no record 1960-no record By: Elliott Baretz and Laurie Adams Waiting for his opponent to make the first move sophomore Kevin Lochner keeps his hands up and his eye on his target. A Touchdown Celebration THE " CLASSIEST” HIGH SCHOOL Niles West, what a school! It has certain uniqueness to it. I suppose you can say it has a style all its own. But when you actually think about it, it’s the students and teachers that make West the extraordinary school it is. Without them, who would make arrangements for dances or plan activities and fundraisers? Who would see to it that the year is a challenging and prosperous one, yet also fun and exciting? Looking back at some of the many memorable events that made Niles West the ’’classiest” high school, we can smile at all the good times we had and shared with others. Who could forget Friday Night Bashes, senior Hawaiin Day, the Niles West Gong Show, Homecoming week contests, and the faculty Christmas carol perfor¬ mance? These and many others added on to West’s description of ’’classy.” Then, of course, there are certain features found only in Niles West that add a special touch of style to the school. The pictures found in the hallway remind us of Indian victories, special events, and wild ’n’ crazy times. The ’’seniors only” section of the cafeteria, the electri¬ cal message board, and, of course, the pink hallways are sights to be seen in no other school. Last, but never least, the athletes, c heerleades, pom pon girls, Midnight Riders and Indian mascot. They’re cre¬ ative, outgoing, and most of all. they keep that Indian spirit soaring! So you see, no matter how you look at it, Niles West is, and always will be, the " classiest” high school! -Estelle Nikolakakis ’89 Seniors Julie DiModica and Joe Lochner enjoy their reign of Homecoming Qi King. 1986. Sophomore Greg Czernik concentrates on get¬ ting his work done for class.

Judy kept up spirit even in times of trouble. The joyous ride through the streets of the I township community was another highlight for the 1985 Homecoming court. Members here seem to be enjoying this ride. Sophomore Joe j Rarba casualll sings the tunef from the hit; Celebration.” Both music and acting in the production proved to be most entertaining. AN$!” The varsity football victory against the Maine A Silver Celebration 9 A Tarnished Image Many of us have a simple answer to taking a test we did not study for. We call it cheating. Although everyone knows that cheating gets us nowhere, students still feel it is the only way to achieve a good grade in class. Nowa¬ days, college is very grade conscious. In order to even be considered for admission, students have to have a good class rank which directly reflects that student’s grades. Also, some parents stress very heavily the importance of achievement. Older brothers and older sisters have al¬ ways done " A” work, therefore, the youngest should fol¬ low in the exact footsteps. The result could prove to be disastrous for the student’s learning habits, by continu¬ ously cheating himself. There are many ways to cheat in class. Students draw up cheat sheets, or even put these cheat sheets on their pocket calculators. Girls utilize their long finger nails for easily available answers, and even write on their legs while wearing a mini skirt. Enevitably, these cheaters will get caught when taking a peak at the helpful " hints” they appear to be using. Unfortunately, cheating does not stop at the high school level. Colleg fraternities or dormatories have a useful device called a test file. This file is comprised of tests which are usually in use that semester-, they are stolen or copied. Cheaters are definately not helping themselves or those around them. One last thought for those who make cheat¬ ing a regular practice-, how would you like to be on an operation table, not knowing that your surgeon cheated on his MEDICAL EXAM? The varsity cheerleaders are " benched " but still smiling. These spirit¬ ed girls cheered through rain and cold weather. Senior Julia dj ttin rform« rfectly during the Celebration jJ ance poldin is active¬ ly involved in the musi jepartmijnt. Indian chiefs Gary Kaufman and Mrs. Stevens show their spirit during the " Cowboys and Indians " day. This day was one of the dress up activities of Homecoming 1985. A Silver celebration II Senior year is a time to say your last goodbyes, and to try and treasure life-long friendships. The senior class sponsored events such as battle of the bands, and bake sales. Seniors Elke Bojes and Judy DeAcetis represent themselves well as they sit in as Student Union and Senate members. Both clubs tried to boost school spirit, and activities. Division-Seniors 13 Concentration on future plans Senior Steve Hester spends his free time constructively in the Annex. During free time many students use the Annex to study, read or ' veg-out’. Seniors Judy Mercado and Ann Chutivanich look over the new Josten’s selection. Class rings are very important high school souveneirs. 14 Seniors LETS HEAR IT FOR SENIOR SPIRIT SENIORSI SENIORS! The words echoed from the Senior bleachers at the pep assembly. The class of ’86 has finally reached the top and they ' re proud. Fi¬ nally the oldest in the school, seniors feel their power and display their spirit in cheers, clothes, and activities. At assemblies there is no hesitation from the seniors to yell, clap, and be the loudest, rowdiest group in the school. " Although I’ve never been able to sit in the senior section due to participating in the band, I’ve always noticed the sen¬ iors have the most spirit,” said senior Jill Zabo. The bleachers resound with cheers of pride for the Indians. Our school mascot runs around the gym floor screaming Indian (and of course senior) power during her cheers. " Re¬ presenting the school as the mascot is fun and exciting. It’s a great experience being part of the spirit,” said Judy Ash¬ er, senior mascot. The colors red and white can be seen on jackets, hats, shirts, and almost any¬ thing else worn around Niles West. Though everyone, including underclass¬ men, wear these colors, seniors glorify them. It is not unusual to see spirited seniors walking through the halls with NW written on their faces in red and white during a big event. Everything from clothes to red and white polished fingernails demonstrate the seniors ' In¬ dian spirit. There are special activities or tradi¬ tions the seniors take part in. Sitting at the senior tables in the cafeteria has become a status symbol over the years. Senior Paulette Arvanitis said, " Sitting at the senior tables makes you feel like the oldest and no. I. It seems like people look up to you.” Though seniors have school spirit, they also have class spirit. They stick together in the cafeteria, on the bleachers, and on the field during graduation. Many seniors will soon be in college working their way up from little fresh¬ men to big seniors once again, but for now they are the big seniors. They know it, and it shows. Seniors 15 Seniors, as well as other students, can often be heard complaining about tests, homework, and the teachers that give them but what would they do if they were . . . teachers? When put to the test, seniors answered: If I were a teacher I would . . . Never give tests on Monday but on Friday. " Michelle Burdeen " Never teach gym! " Sonia Bychkov " Want my own personal marker board. " Andy Mills " Never go on strike! " Paula Krone " Not be in it for the money. " Sheryl Shimanovsky " Never wear plaid pants that clashed with a checkered tie. " Judy Man " Move into the private sector. " Eric Kopfstein Have mandatory nuclear war fall-out prac¬ tice. " Wendy Sedelsky Improve the methods of teaching freshmen English. " 16 Seniors Jennifer Gaiser Senior Debbie Freed concentrates on the intensity of the players.

The English Resource Center is a quiet place for preparing for tests. 20 Seniors I don’t know where I’m going I don’t know what I need But I’ll get to where I’m going And that’s all right with me The Who- " Drowned” Senior Barbara Silverman finds a quiet hiding’ place where she cah study comfortably. Seniors 2 Taking a water break between classes is Senior Paulette Arvanitis. Students can al¬ ways be found making their breaks useful. SENIOR HIDEAWAY Have you ever felt unwanted, out of place, or just plain lost? If you have recently then you probably are not a senior at Niles West. The seniors at West don ' t have that problem because they know that from the first day of school until graduation there will be a place for them where no freshmen, sophomores, or juniors are, a place where they can kick back and relax, a place where all their friends will be. That is, the senior tables in the cafeteria. These tables are on " reserve " for seniors only from September Until June and no one except a senior would dare sit there. These tables are used during the day for the various lunch mods and also after school when getting together. These tables aren ' t just for eating lunch but for talking with friends, studying, or just sitting back, putting your feet up and saying, " I belong. I ' m a senior!” 22 Seniors Reed Davis Judy De Acetis Shereen Deal Alayna Decker Frank DelPhin Julie Di Modica Linda Deutsch Barry Dodd v.

The English Resource Center is a useful place for students to get extra help. 24 Seniors Although no one really thinks about it, there are many differences between a freshman’s school day and a senior’s school day. Differences not only with the classes they take but with the way they actually live the day. Here are some examples: Freshman Day 1. Starts early (5:30 or 6:00) 2. Gets to bus stop (6:45) 3. Gets to homeroom (7:25) 4. Carries a minimum of five books all day. 5. Has one lunch with no one he knows. 6. No study halls (too many classes) 7. Starts homework at 2:45 8. Prepares for tomorrow before end¬ ing today. Senior Day 1. Starts later (6:30 or 7:00) 2. Backs car out of driveway (7:20) 3. Gets to homeroom (7:35) 4. Carries a maximum of one. 5. Has two or three lunches with ev¬ ery one he knows. 6. Three study halls (not enough classes) 7. Starts homework at 10:45 8. Prepares?

It seems like everyone is into fitness these days. New health clubs, videos, and clothes are showing up everywhere. Healthy bodies are what’s in style in the ' 80 ' s and people are getting involved. Health clubs have been around for many years but it wasn’t until recently that they became so popular. Many students at Niles West are members of the North Shore Club, East Bank Club, and various Chicago health clubs. ’’After working out at the club I feel good about myself and energized,” said junior Evelina Stipisic. Commericals can be seen on television showing fit popular stars such as Heather Locklear and Cher keeping in shape at local clubs. Because of the popularity and facilities available, many clubs have high membership prices. For people who have the money and will to work, health clubs have become a popular attraction. Some people don’t attend clubs but work out at home instead. Aerobics videotapes have become a big part of the home workout. Jane Fonda is one of the many people who has tapes and books available in stores. The tapes usually run around an hour and work your body by movement rather than by machine. Senior Cindi Moss stated, ’’Aerobics is like dancing and exercising at the same time. It’s a lot of fun.” At first aerobics was considered a girls’ sport but now men are also involved. There is a co-ed class available in the P.E. department at Niles West. The fitness craze has hit our clothing stores, too. Years ago the big thing was designer jeans, today it is workout clothes. Sweat pants and tops are worn to school, out to lunch, and, of course, to work out. ’’Sweats are very comfortable to wear around school and they are usually pretty inexpensive,” said junior Brad Jones. Even the style of the workout clothes has changed. It used to be that a plain body suit or a shorts outfit was fine. Now if you’re part of a club or class, designer clothes are a must. Detailed print designs and exciting wild colors are the style on body suits and sweats today. Nobody knows if the fitness craze will last or not, but for right now it’s here and big. As Billy Crystal (or should I say Fernando?) would say, ”lt doesn’t matter if you feel good as long as you look good because YOU LOOK MARVELOUS!” Students ’Gets that Pepsi feeling during free mods. Most students meet in the cafeteria during free mods to Share a Coke and a smile.’ Seniors 21 Taking advice from friends is Senior Nadine Hug- meyer. Many Seniors agree that friends made in the last four years will be friends for life. Seniors Sonia Bychkov and Eric Kopfstein study together in the English Resource Center for tomorrow’s test. The English Resource Center is a quiet study area where students can go to help others and get help themselves. Startled by her appearance is Senior Kathy Sokalski. For many Seniors glancing in the mirror can be a lifetime trauma.

The Marching Band competed in two competitions bringing back 2nd and 7th place trophies. MONEY!! During a student’s stay in high school, one object is of the utmost need. MONEYII There are two ways a student can obtain this much desired need. They can either turn to a life of crime, or get a job. The latter seems to be the more popular choice among the students here at Niles West. Many fields are open to students. Department stores are popu¬ lar places to work. McDades and Courtesy Home Center both employ many Niles West Students. Their wages are adequate, but they work there for special discounts, or so they say. Grocery stores are also popular places of employment. Stu¬ dents pack bags, or stock shelves at Jewel and Dominicks, looking for free handouts. They keep in mind their life-long goal, to work a check-out counter. But how could we forget, the most popular field of all, the fine chefs. The people who work at fast food restaurants. These fine and talented people can prepare a cheeseburger, small fries, and a medium Coke in three minutes flat. It seems as if at every McDonald, Burger King, or Wendy’s, a familiar face is preparing your meal. 30 Seniors Kiss John Klancnick Mian Klein James Kobyleski Joanna Kohl Charlotte Kokulski Seniors 31 Sitting in the Annex highlighting the im¬ portant words in her text is Senior Debbie Shugal.

For the class of 1986, it marked a final year of learning at West. Learning not only academically, but in many other areas as well. Senior year dispelled many naive beliefs and replaced them with knowledge which freshmen would be wise to heed. Freshmen Believe Staying home is good for the com¬ plexion. G.E.E.K. is a new computer course at school. Curfew is when you go home. In riding at the front of the bus. In waiting in line. A party is ten. It should be less fill¬ ing! Saturday detention is missing cartoons. Study Flails are just that. Seniors are intimi¬ dating. Seniors Know Freshmen have acne anyway. It’s something named for under¬ classmen. It’s when you go out It’s better to take the car. You go to McDonalds. A party is 100. It tastes great! It’s a reason to get up before 12:00 noon They’re social rap sessions. They’re right . . . but ... Seniors 33 LOOKING BACK Can you remember back to that time long ago when Mom said, " It ' s time to go,” and you asked, puzzled, " Where?” It didn ' t take long to find yourself in a hard wooden chair, writing and reciting you ABC ' s. You experienced your first major problem that day, missing " Captain Kangaroo” and " Mr. Rogers” but more serious changes were yet to come. Mrs. Biology reminded you that lightning bugs commonly died in oxygen- starved jars and that for this reason, you received a " check” instead of a " plus”. You also learned that your " Black Cauldron” book report could have been written without reading the book, and that braces made speech class impossible. The lessons never stopped, even when you were old enough for high school. You soon found out that Niles West was a lot larger than your good old junior high, that room 138 (which you walked into that first day freshmen year) wasn ' t your English class after all but a study hall, that math and " A ' s” didn ' t necessarily correspond, and that term papers needed to be started a little earlier than 9 o’clock the night before they were due. Taking time out’ from studies are seniors Gary Paustian and Dean Hagen. A nice pat on the head isn’t always appreciated.

Homeroom is an optional class. Looking nice for school means sweats and combed hair. Taking the bus only happens when the car breaks down. The only living thing in the cafeteria is the food. There is no maximum speed limit for the hallways. The ’rag” is not something you wash with. A ’modified” excuse means Madison for the week¬ end. Homework assignments are only something to fill up the Chandler’s and lastly . . . Graduation is where the class of 1986 takes their hats off to everyone. Seniors 37 Shirley O Charles Oliver Elina Ozei Sheila Oztekin Jerome Pagos Karen Palin John Pankiw Cynthia Papoutsakis Sandy Park Sunny Park Kimberly Partington Dominique Partipilo Madelene Partipilo Margaret Paszko Archana Patel Thomas Petro Glenn Petrovich Rowdy seniors take a break for lunch. Fortunately the cafeteria fulfills everyones needs. 38 Seniors Watching a biology experiment are seniors Yummy Suh and Kevin Chern. Both agree that not all experiments are easy to stom¬ ach. PAISLEY HITS THE 80 s Each year there is a new fashion that works its way into the hallways and class¬ rooms. In years past it has been rhinestone jewelry, Swatch watches. Guess jeans, and spiked belts. For the " with it” student, the latest craze was paisley prints. Paisley first hit the fashion scene during the psychedelic sixties and then it slowly died down with the change in times. Now, twenty years later, we are seeing it again in various colors and styles. Girls and guys alike showed off this new fashion from head to toe. They modeled anything from sweaters, pants, blouses, socks, and even watches containing the paisley print. Many people even wore a paisley shirt and pants with a different paisley pattern just to get into the swing of things. Some people, however, were with the anti-paisley fad. They found it loud and obnoxious and refused to wear it. Many people complained of headaches from the bright colors mixed with so much print. These people had to keep their eyes closed just to avoid the encounter of a fellow classmate wearing paisley. Whoever said that history and fashion repeats itself was right because as we looked down our very own hallways, we saw an old fad being displayed in a brand new way. Whether you find it attractive or not. paisley has hit the eighties.

There are two computer labs located in the school. SENIORS WHO ACT LIKE FRESHMEN You see it all the time. In the halls in the gym, in the cafeteria. You’re so used to it that you probably don ' t even notice it. What is this strange quirk of human behavior? Seniors who act like freshmen. Here are a few things our senior- freshmen did this year: -Took the wrong bus home -Went to the wrong class -Came to class early -Ate in the cafeteria duing lunch -Forgot their locker combinations -Fell down the stairs -Fell up the stairs -Studied for finals.six weeks early -Came to school on a day off If you found yourself doing any of these things don’t feel too bad, there were many other senior-freshmen doing the same exact things. 40 Seniors Coming up with a good conclusion for a biology lab is not an easy task to accomplish. Here seniors Garrett Feinberg and Jon Lisco debate on how to write out their conclusion. Catching up on some lost sleep is senior Shawn Brown. Sleeping is a popular ac¬ tivity for seniors during free periods. Seniors 41 EARLY SENIORITIS What is the newest epidemic to invade Niles West and other high schools throughout the country? Early Senioritis! Senioritis is defi ned in non-medical terms as total laziness and apathy towards school. Seniori¬ tis among upperclassmen is common and wide¬ spread. There is no cure for this disease, but it seems to disappear for seniors in June. As for the under¬ classmen they must wait until they graduate before any relief is in sight. There are some symptoms for Early Senioritis which include: Making a friend go to McDonald’s to get you a Big Mac and fries instead of eating the school food; going to a party the night before a test thinking that there is always homeroom to study; counting the number of days until gradu¬ ation; and, pressing the snooze button on your alarm time after time in the morning. So if you freshmen, sophomores, and juniors think you have this very contagious disease you should call the Early Seniori¬ tis hotline at l-A-M-L-A-Z-Y, and just hope that it’s not too late. 42 Seniors Jobie Rissman Sandra Rivkin David Rolf Anthony Roma Nicholette Romashko Melissa Rosen Sharri Rosenberg Richard Rosenthal David Ross Heather Ross Ira Ross Jacquelin Rozencwajg Melissa Rubens Diane Rubenstein David Rubin Chiaki Saito Sean Samuel Lisa Sandlow Aida Santillan Peter Sarantopoulos Gail llene Sax Anil Saxena Becki Schanz Tim Schnaitmann Seniors 43 44 THE HEAT IS ON! Pressure is one of the biggest problems that face students at Niles West, even seniors. It may seem that seniors have no pressure or problems by the wild, out-going way they conduct themselves during the year, but they do. The pressure of the last three years are corked up inside them ready to explode at any minute. Seniors go through many headaches, explanations to the dean, teachers, texts, and Monday mornings. Senior year is no different. However all seniors agree that the biggest pressure is what they will be doing after high school. Pressure of jobs and colleges, where to go, and what to do add to the stress of senior year. If you happen to see a senior yelling, ripping, or growling in school, don’t worry, he is just trying to relieve some past pressure to make room for the new pressure to come. Seniors Reviewing the chapter before a test is Senior Ronald Skogland. For some students cramming doesn ' t always work.

He always sat in the seat behind the bus driver and asked, " Where are the seat belts?” He always sat " three in a seat” on the bus even when there were empty seats in the back, guarded by seniors, He always laughed at the teacher’s jokes, He was the only one who waved back to Dr. Ring.

SENIOR HANGOUTS Weekends and after school, seniors like to get together and show their spirit. Whether before a movie or after a big home game, before practice starts or after a party, seniors like to " hangout.” The most popular place to meet continued to be Jack ' s Restaurant on Touhy. Jack’s, open 24 hours a day, was very accomodating to many late night seniors. Although the managers of Jack’s were not always thrilled to see hoards of seniors gathering around the tables to munch on late night snacks and gossip about late night festivities, it never stopped the class of ' 86. Another big attraction was the student parking lot. After athletic events, seniors headed to the lot and made their own fun. Car radios blasted as the seniors showed their spirit. When Jack’s was too crowded and the parking lot too cold, seniors traveled to McDonald’s on Dempster or the newly built one on Niles Center Road. The 7-11 on Gross Point Road and Lincoln Avenue was always crowded with seniors who needed a light munch. After school and during the school day, seniors purchased slurpees, Snickers and other junk food. In this case, when it comes to snacking, calories just don ' t matter.

Western shirts were at home on the range and at Niles West, while ascending to the peaks climbed high tops and Reeboks. For the more delicate, gardens of flowers showered across oversized shirts, and stirrups danced onto center stage. Mixed and matched were patterns, plaids, and paisleys galore, even equestrian spirit jumped high. Baroque jewelry played a must as an accessory. For those who just wanted to be comfortable, sweats were high on the list. Looking like everyone else was not the key to style, being yourself and having fun was. If climbing and jumping weren’t exactly up your alley, with the right clothes, no one could tell the difference.

A junior is someone caught between the obnoxiousness of being a sophomore and the complaceney of being a senior. A junior is someone who has no time to do everything and all the time in the world to do nothing. A junior takes his life one test at a time. A junior walks with his head high even if his grades are low. A junior knows the score and will gladly inform anyone who doesn’t. A junior is at his best when school is not in session. A junior hates his title but likes his position. A junior only takes " no” for an answer if he is asking whether or not something was his fault. A junior knows be tween right and wrong, which explains his behavior at school functions. After hours of practice, junior Chris Larkin struts his stuff at a half-time performance by the Niles West Marching Band. A junior commands the respect of any non-senior. A junior is what I am proud to call myself. by Dale Sherman 56 Juniors Mark Fisher Kevin Forman Michelle Frankel Barry Freed Rich Friedman Susan Gallo Maura Gannon Irene Geller Jeff Gassel Steve Geller Lisa Gentile David Gilbert Mike Giterman Lori Glassner Trina Goetz Larry Goldburg Loren Goldbortin Gordon Goldborton Alan Goldenstein Nicholas Goldish Nancy Goren Juniors 57 58 STAYING THE SAME Many times people will talk about the different things that they don’t like and wish to change.

The worst day of the week where EVERYTHING seems to go wrong! What could be worse? After a fun and relaxing weekend, you awake at 5:30 in the morning to find that you must return to another long troublesome week of school. Stumbling out of your house, still half asleep, you realize that it’s freezing outside and you forgot to bring a jacket. As you wait impatiently for the bus, which is late once again, you think of how much more comfortable you’d be lying in your warm cozy bed. Finally arriving at school, you dash to homeroom hoping that you won’t be late. The whole day goes wrong! You flunk an important English test, forget your math homework at home, trip and fall while trying to get through the crowded hallways, and then, to top it all off, you drop a glass of fruit punch all over your brand new sweater during lunch. Storming out of the cafeteria, angry and discouraged, you look down to see that you have accidentally torn your favorite pair of jeans. " What a day, " you say to yourself, almost in tears, " I can’t wait until Fri¬ day!” Estelle Nikolakakis ’89 Juniors Kathy Campbell and Sandra Londano take time out from their pickleball game to give big smiles to the staff photographer. Juniors 63 WEST, NILES WEST I walked into the building with unusual apprehension. Here it was, summer, and I was actually about to enter that forbiding fortress of education they call West, Niles West. I made my way down the twisting and turning corridors. Dare I go further? I didn’t like the idea, but I knew I must press on. Down the hallway, what’s that? A sign? No, not just a sign, an arrow pointing left. I knew I was in business. A final left, then right; I had reached my destination. I casually slipped into the crowded room unnoticed, and proceeded to get in line. What must have only been forty-five minutes seemed like forever. I patiently waited in line , my arms ever-tiring from the strain of textbooks. Finally one person to go until my turn. My mission was to return my textbooks from the previous school year, pick up new ones to carry me through the upcoming year, and still be able to enjoy the week or so of vacation that was remaining. Sure, it sounded easy enough, but I couldn’t help wincing in pain each time I thought of the notice demanding $96.13 that had interrupted my summer vacation. My turn at last! My history book quietly slipped across the counter, the gleaming binding hiding the ’’abused” interior. I calmly explained how the previous owner of my math book must have filled in the answers, and how of course my German book was missing pages in the back when I got it. I was done. No, wait a minute, my ’’Steps to Better Writing” wasn’t accounted for. My suggestion that it was because I never received it was in vain, and I put down $6.00 on the counter. It could have been worse, I suppose. I quickly picked up my books for the upcoming year, and fled as fast as I could from the textbook center and that accursed fortress of learning they call West, Niles West.

You seem to be spending all the time that you used to talk in the cafeteria in the library. Actually, it seems that everybody is doing the same thing because there are very few seats open in the library. On top of the make-up work you have five tests Friday on the material covering the whole six weeks. You start coming earlier and leaving later, to study and to do your homework. All you can think about is your freedom on Friday at exactly 2:26 p.m. After you finish your last test on Friday, your teacher makes the announcement that the term paper, which was assigned when you were absent, is due on Monday. So instead of having a relaxing and fun-filled weekend you ' re once again stuck in the monotonous world of school. Workbooks are often a part of class work.

For most of us, it meant seeing all those friends you promised to see over the summer but somehow never did, hitting the books again, studying for tests, and getting back into shape plus a whole lot more. For the fresh¬ men though it was quite different. Going to high school was a new and unique experience, yet scary. It meant meeting new people, seeing old faces, hoping that you looked right. It also meant getting used to a bigger school, with bigger hallways, and bigger people. It took a while to get into the beat of things but gradually everything fell right into place, and the new faces were now friends.

This years Mixer, held in the cafeteria on September 27, turned out to be a very popular event among underclassmen. The music ranged from hard rock to new wave, and even some slow tunes. It gave freshmen and sophomores a chance to meet new people, dance, and have a great time. Colorful decorations added life and creativity to the dance. Many added their own touch by wearing togas. In general, the Frosh-Soph Mixer turned out to be a total success! The crowd was wild and lively and seemed to be having a terrific time. That’s the spirit of ’88 and ’89!

It’s what students call their " Hangouts.” To most it’s more than just a hangout. It ' s a place to see those friends you never see the rest of the day. Many people exchange gossip, hear the latest on the favorite sports team, see what ' s happen¬ ing around school or just comparing notes from biology class. These hangouts might be located in the cafeteria at a certain table, the band or pool hallway, or just at some¬ body ' s locker. A hangout is great to have because you know you will see some faces-, not the strangers in a crowd.

Fire drills are necessary even though they are disruptive to the classes in session. Students and faculty should know how to exit the building quickly, yet safely, in case of an actual fire. Since fire drills are practiced, the students know where to go, and what to do, so that in a real fire they would be less likely to panic. Classes are disrupted by fire drills. A student may be taking a test or listening to a lecture. This can be very upsetting to a teacher. When all things are considered, how¬ ever, it is important to know something that can save your life.

It was difficult listening to the teacher or doing your homework with all of the heat and sweat dripping down your back. If you looked into certain classes you would probably some people waving their paper fans, (which was once their homework), hoping that the heat would go away.

When first seen from afar, you wonder, what ' s going onl Then you take a closer look and see the " HAPPY BIRTHDAY " or " SWEET SIXTEEN " . The decorating of lockers is a tradition for birthdays at Niles West. Friends of the birthday person get together and make a card. It could be plain white, or fluorescent yellow and pink. Cards might be fancy with newspaper clippings, balloons, streamers or just a simple " HAPPY BIRTHDAY " . Then, friends of the birthday person get together and sign it. It makes a person’s birthday more special. In this way you can show your friends you really care.

During the assembly, freshmen were addressed by Mark Poulakidas, President of the Senior Class, and by Benji Malkin, President of the Sophomore Class, as well as other members of the faculty and staff. As a result of these speeches, freshmen learned about the many clubs, teams, and privileges available at Niles West. Following the speakers, Ms. Howell, Mr. Erickson, and Mr. Kupferberg per¬ formed in a comedy skit in which they impersonated three trouble-making freshmen facing the consequences of detention. Acting out the part of the dean was senior Paul Bouboutsis. All in all, the assembly turned out to be enjoyable for most freshmen. Learning to adjust to a new school is never easy, but thanks to the help of fellow students and staff, freshmen understood what was expected of them, and who they could turn to for help.

PINK WALLS When you think of the color pink, what do you usually think of? Pink bedrooms, a pink prom dress, pink hair-rib bons, pink lollipops! You don’t usually think of school walls, do you? Well, last summer the school decided to paint our walls pinkl Were they painted to cheer up our long and gloomy days here, or to make us feel more at home? Or maybe they did it so we could have yet another reason to hate school? Who knows. Here are some opinions expressed by West students ... " I think the pink walls are rather tacky but, in a way, they sort of liven up the hallways Dawn Jacobs " The pink walls bring a smile to my face! " Jeannine Dimodica " It was stupid not to make them red or white. " Wendy Martin " They’re different, so I like them. " Karen Pintz " I think they’re swell. " Noel Garfinkel " I totally love them!! They remind me of my bedroom! " Stacy Stratigakes " I think the pink walls are ugly, but now I really don’t notice the color. " Stephanie Pritcker " The Pepto-Bismol walls are ugly!

Freshmen have that " new” Indian spiritl " You don’t really notice the walls. " Frank Brodsky Freshmen 91 BETTER OFF DEAD!! Arriving at the first class of the day, you sit down and relax until the bell rings. The teacher walks in with a stack of papers in her hand, but you think nothing of it until she tells everyone to clear their desks. Everyone realizes this is a " pop” quiz. Not getting nervous because you read the chapter last night, you take the paper from the person ahead, look at the test, and realize you read the wrong chapter. You didn’t have the faintest idea of any of the answers. Moving on to the next class you are excited because you’ll receive a test you took and thought every answer was right. Taking notes on a lecture the whole period, all you can think about is the test. Two minutes before the bell the test was returned and on the top you see an " F”. Now all you can think about is a way to get out of the rest of your classes and go home, but it is impossible because you have a huge math test and that’s your last class of the day. You study for the math test every chance you get throughout the day, and by the time math class comes around you know everything you need to know. Walking into the math room you spot a sub who announces that there will be no test. Instead, you will have it next week. At this point you think nothing worse can happen to you that day until you are walking around the corner and bump into a dean. You knock him down and he claims you did it on purpose and gives you a Saturday. By then you were ready to go home, go to sleep, and about a half hour later the annoying sound from your alarm goes off again. Thinking you must have set it at the wrong time you look at the clock and see 5:30 A.M. You get up and look in your parent’s room. They are both there. The question is, was it a dream or was it real?

For example, when the narrator came out. the audience veiled out. " Where’s your neck. " During the rain storm the audience shot water at each other and put a newspaper over their heads for protection. During the wedding scene the audi¬ ence had a rice fight.

Everybody has an opinion of their own. So when students were asked who their favorite cartoon characters were and why they picked these characters, the responses were original and rather amusing. Here are some of them . . My favorite cartoon character is: " Heman, because he reminds me of me.” -Helen Georgakopoulos ’86 " Garfield, because he’s so funny and original.” -Susan Bezanes ’89 " Fred Flintstone, because he’s fat, obnoxious, and eats a lot.” -Jemuel Ripley ’89 " Woody Woodpecker, because he’s very cute.” -Anne Liosatos ’88 " Casper the Friendly Ghost, because he’s a good guy.” -Patty Tzortzis ’89 " Heathcliff, because he’s cute and lovable.” -Melaine Soriano ’89 " Greedy Smurf, because he reminds me of me when I’m hungry.” -Lettitia Cadavid ’86 " Fred Flintstone, because he’s so realistic.” -Jenny Anast ’88 " George Jetson, because he’s futuristic and he’s funny.” -Susan Theotokatos ’89 by Estelle Nikolakakis ’89 - I Owen Masterton Mamie Malolcoff Heather McCulloh Jenny McGeary Jason McGuire Keith McMath Louis Meindle Mary Mercado Kim Miceli Angelo Michaels Kristi Mihelic Cari Miller David Miller Chris Minx Sean Mollet Maria Maloney Scott Moreth David Morris Chris Morton Jennifer Moyer Gordana Mraovic 98 Freshmen Elyse Decker enjoys the company.

Swatches have become a very popular accessory and are worn by just about everyone. ”1 think that they’re cool because they’re original and different from most watches.” commented freshman Ivy Kron.

Freshmen 101 SWEET OR NOT SO SWEET DREAMS Did you ever have a day that you thought was a nightmare, yet was real? The day begins at 5:30 A.M. with that dreaded buzzing of your alarm clock. Your first reaction to the annoying sound is to press the snooze button, but on this particular day instead of pressing that button your sub conscious tells you to turn it off. After what you thought was five minutes, you open your eyes, look at the clock to see if you have a little more time, and see that is is 7:00 A.M. At this point you jump out of bed and head for the bathroom, thinking about how after school you can come home and sleep. Suddenly you remember that you have a detention for cutting the last class the day before. You’re not worried that you missed the bus already, because you figure that mom can drive you before she goes to work. You peek into her room to ask her and nobody’s there. All you see is a note saying that she had to leave early and she hopes you have a good day. All ready to leave at 7:20 A.M. you start an eight mile hike. You arrive at school by 7:35 A.M., but while running up the stairs all your books and papers fall throughout the stairwell. After collecting all the papers it is 7:38 A.M. You finally get to homeroom 45 seconds before the class is dismissed and explain everything to the teacher. In return you get a referral with the statement, ’’This was your second time.” Jeff Seidman Rory Seleman Stella Sfikas Sophia Shakir Ejaz Shamir Margaret Sanders Paul Schramm Kathy Schroeder Eric Schulman Roswitha Schwager Gayle Schwartz Dawn Rugendorf Brian Russel Malathi Sabapathy Wally Sajdak Beata Salethik Hector Sanchez Kelly Seay 102 Freshmen Above: Freshman histo¬ ry teacher Dan Hill talks with interested parents.

ASSEMBLY BEATS THE HEAT On September 6, with the tempera¬ ture a mere 100 degrees in the gym¬ nasium, over 1974 students and fac¬ ulty gathered for the second annu¬ al " welcome back " assembly. Fold¬ ers were turned into fans as every¬ one tried desperately to keep cool, but the heat just became more in¬ tense. Mistress of Ceremonies, senior Judy Zemsky, wished every¬ one a warm welcome back. Many unplanned surprises charac¬ terized the pep assembly. In the middle of Principal Dr. Ring’s speech, chants of " less filling and tastes great " began with the senior class and continued with the ju¬ niors. Student Senate president senior Dean Marinakas, who was supposed to speak, was replaced at the last minute when his speech was not approved by the adminis¬ tration. Indian mascot senior Judy Asher fired up the crowd with a rendition of the song " Shout, " to the point where people began to move from the bleachers to the gymnasium floor to dance. Pom¬ pon girls were surprised by a false Showing their spirit, the senior class expresses their joy to finally be seniors.

Despite these happenings, the as¬ sembly included typical compo¬ nents consisting of performances by the varsity cheerleaders and speeches by Student Union presi¬ dent senior Jenni Holt and theater department representative senior Andy Mills. Robert Murphy, repre¬ senting the faculty was an added touch this year with his welcome back speech. " Overall, I thought the assembly went well. A lot of things that took place were byond my control but that is the risk you take when you plan something for so many people. I was very pleased to see everyone showing so much positive spirit so early in the year, " concluded Judy Zemsky. The Niles West varsity cheerleaders display their agility by forming a pyramid. No game would ever be complete without the spirit and enthusiasm of the cheerleaders. Passing out 3-D glasses before the assembly is senior Mark Poolos.

The Back to School Bash was the first social event of the school year and a definite success. Students rush to the cafeteria to get into the dance. Getting bash tickets is sometimes difficult as the number of tickets sold is always limited. 110 Happenings BOPPIN’ AT THE BASH Summer was over and the new school year had begun. To help students get back into the swing of things. Student Union spon- sored the Back to School Bash. The bash was held after the home football game. From 9:45 until 11:45, the entire student body was invited to come, dance, and have a good time. Tickets were sold in advance for two dollars. Despite the bad weather conditions, many students showed up to make the bash a big success. The disc jockey provided a variety of music to which everyone danced. Refreshments were also served to give students a chance to cool off. For all who attended, the Back to School Bash was a great way to get together with friends, both old and new, and dance into the new school year. According to Sophomore Ryan Stoeterau, " The bash was a great way to forget the pressures of starting school and just have fun.” Helping the students achieve the maximum level of fun is a DJ from Dance Experience. He kept the dance going strong until II p.m. with his interesting mix of songs.

Many new acquaintances as well as old friends could be found at the mixer. UNDERCLASS MIX IT UP The mixing of people took place at the annual Freshman and Sophomore Mixer. This event was held on September 27 in the Niles West Cafeteria and Courtyard. The mixer was sponsored by the Sophomore Class Cabinet, with more than 400 underclassmen attending. It was a good way to meet more people and have some fun. Sophomore Wendy Martin explained, " I met some new people and had a great time doing it.” Music by disc jockey Don Davis played throughout the night. The energetic music ranged from 60 ' s to modern day new wave. Refreshments, including brownies, punch, and every kind of cookie imaginable, were laid out for the students, giving them a break from all the dancing. Most of the students showed up in casual clothes, but some did get punked out. A few of the Sophomores brightened up the evening by wearing togas. Sophomore Dawn Ja cobs commented, " More Sophomores should have dressed up in toga. " All this excitement helped to make the night a success. Getting into the spirit of the dance by wearing togas are sophomores Jason Litwin and Chris Bradbury. This year, many underclassmen li¬ vened up the mixer by wearing togas and other strange forms of dress. Happenings 113 STRIKE GIVES STUDENTS " MINI VACATION " While Niles West students were only in their third week of school, it was announced that there would be a strike. The strike began on September 30 and continued until October 9. Although teachers picketed throughout the eight days, students used this time as a " mini-vacation " to sleep, go out, spend time with friends, or catch up on their favorite soap operas. Freshmen returned to school for half a day on October 8, and were to continue going to school this way. But that night, problems were resolved and school resumed on October 9. The first day back was a bit chaotic. Classes started two hours late and many students didn’t even show up because they were not aware that the strike had ended. But soon, school was " back to normal " and students realized that their " mini-vacations " were over and it was back to work once again. Estelle Nikolakakis ’89 Discussing the recent strike proposal with Dean Kupferberg is math teacher Stan Jones.

Students were not the only ones who attended College Night and collected pam¬ phlets. 116 Happenings College Night is open to anyone interested. As shown by the impressive turnout, students from many schools took advantage of the chance to get more information about various colleges. ACADEMIC PURSUIT On Tuesday, October I, over 200 coleges and universities were repre¬ sented at college night. Juniors and seniors who were college-bound were able to walk around to the different booths displayed throughout the cafeteria, gymnasium, and first and second floors. Larger universities occupied classrooms and held question-and-answer sessions. Students received pamphlets and brochures from various schools. College night, sponsored by the guidance center, seemed to be an infor¬ mative and worthwhile experience for many Niles Township students. Junior Chris Olsen explained, " It helped me decide which colleges would be good for me. " This seemed to be the case mainly for students who knew what career they wanted to pursue. However, for people who were undecided, such as senior Nissin Behar, college night was not as reward¬ ing. Behar stated ' I thought it was a little disorganized. There wasn ' t enough time to ask enough questions. " Many other students who walked into the gym and were overwhelmed by the numerous colleges cramped together shared this view. Dr. Cocking, who was involved in the preparation of college night, ob¬ served, " It went very well. The attendance was as good as in the past and there were fewer cancellations from universities then for the past two to three years. " In reference to the number of colleges undecided students had to contend with, he replied, " It’s a shopping experience. " In the future, Dr. Cocking felt that it would be a good idea to have a preparatory class for college night. These sessions would give advice to students about what kinds of questions to ask and which colleges they might look at if they know what field they will be entering. Meanwhile, college bound students can go to their counselors for answers to these and other questions. Junior Sue Chang answers some questions for Michigan State University. At College Night students were instructed to fill out questionaires if they desired further information about the school. Although hundreds of schools are represented at College Night, other options are also made available to the students. The Coast Guard, along with other branches of the military, made a special landing on the front lawn of the school.

A Silver Screen Anniversa¬ ry” The " Animal House” day theme found students dressed in togas and college sweats. The halls were filled with Flintstones’ sheets and sweatpants with Harvard printed across the back end. Some students wanted to go as far as starting a food fight in the cafeteria to follow the example of " Animal House,” but security assured them that B.A.C. didn’t quite fit into the theme. " Animal House” day brought out a little bit of wildness in all who participated, but it didn’t make a difference because " it was all Greek to them” " Toga day presented West students with a whole new world of fun, " concluded junior Dale Sherman. A firm believer in the ancient Greek art of architecture, junior Gary Nudelman puts a lot of thought into his technical drawing class. Dress-up days help make Homecoming more than just another football game. Here, seniors Jenni Holt and Jon Lisco get into the Greek spirit of toga day. 118 Toga Day Always the orator, junior James Van Osdol stresses his point as he makes himself comfortable in the cafeteria.

Happenings Q3 SENIORS SUPPLY SERVICES On Thursday December 20, mem¬ bers of the senior class cabinet vis¬ ited the Jane Adams Hull House in Chicago for the annual Christmas par¬ ty. The purpose of the party is to give less fortunate children the opportuni¬ ty to have the best possible Christ¬ mas they can have. Also, the seniors have a chance to share in the real spirit of the holidays. The seniors this year went all out and put a lot of money into a most worthy cause. They bought a lot of presents for the children and worked hard to plan fun games that they would enjoy. Jon Lisco told the Christmas story and Jordan Cramer came in all the way from the North Pole to play Santa Claus and distrib¬ ute presents. Sherri Owens, the sen¬ ior cabinet’s new advisor, was very impressed with the party. " It was a terrific experience seeing our seniors getting involved with people less for¬ tunate than themselves. It is the only activity of its kind and I think the seniors will always remember it,” commented Owens. Another activity the senior class cabinet participated in was helping to coach the Malloy basketball team. The Malloy Center is a special school for mentally handicapped children. Going for the basket, two Malloy students. Jason and Jimmy, participate in a practice game. The students put as much effort into practices as they do games. Nametags were given to the students at the Hull House to provide a ’personal touch,” The Christmas party was beneficial to Niles West and Hull House students alike. 124 Volunteering Services A good defense is a strategic part of every basketball game. Seniors Jenni Holt and Jordan Cramer help the Malloy kids to understand this tactic. The children of the Jane Adams Hull House feel more comfortable when spoken to in their native language of Spanish. Senior Jon Lisco entertains the kids with a rousing game of " Simon dice” or " Simon says.” Giving one of the Malloy team members a pep talk is Cynthia Papoutsakis. Moral support is as important to the team as learning their basketball skills. One of the games prepared for the children of the day care center was " pin the nose on the clown.

PARADE - A CROWD PLEASER Full of glitter and excitement, the Homecoming parade was an unquestionable success. A new route, going through more neighborhoods, meant that more people were able to watch the parade. The parade started at Niles West on Saturday, October 26 at 10:30, and made its way through Morton Grove, Skokie, and Lincolnwood, ending back at Niles West in time for the big game against the Warriors. At the head of the parade were the Homecoming King and Queen, Joe Lochner and Julie Di Modica, in a Cadillac convertible. The parade’s numerous floats included ones by the junior and senior cabi¬ nets, cheerleaders, pom-pons, swim team, basketball team, and the orchestra, which rated as the best float. The parade was organized by James VanOsdol and Dale Sher¬ man, president and vice-president of Junior Cabinet. Said VanOsdol, " It was a lot of hard work but it all paid off in the end, as everyone involved seemed to have a good time. " " The only thing that didn’t run smoothly about the parade, " com¬ mented Sherman, " was the local city traffic. " Just how much fun was had at the parade? Said junior Scott Mandl, " It was great fun participating in the parade, and it was great to see everyone having a good time. " Recalled junior Mike Phillips, " I had a better time than I ever thought I could have. " 126 Happenings Prepared for every situation, the Pom Pon squad brings along enough toilet paper for the entire parade. The squad gave up their traditional float on a fire engine in favor of a school bus. Representing Senior Cabinet is Garrett Fienberg and Lisa Sandlow. Their Float, like many others in the parade, showed that a great deal of time and effort were put into it. The beaming faces of seniors Zafreen Sirajullah and Albert Rhee show their pride in their float. The orchestra took first place in the float competition. ' ’We’re number one!” is the message that Student Union members express to nearby onlookers.

The Indian football team eagerly awaited the start of the Homecoming game against the Maine West Warriors. On Saturday October 26, at 2:00 p.m., with the temperature a balmy 70°, the Indians began the game.

Maybrun not only scored the first touchdown of the second half, but he helped out on the third score by tossing a 36-yard touchdown pass to Mark Poulakidas. The third touchdown was set up by senior Gary Paustian’s interception. Paustian and ju¬ nior J.J. McCulloh, who was credited with two solo and 10 assisted tackles, were defensive players of the game, according to Head Coach Bill Richardson.

Happenings 129 It was 8:00 P.M., Saturday, October 26, and the stage was set for the Homecoming Dance. The theme was " Stardust Memories " and Student Union had it played to the hilt. The gym was elaborately decorated as a gal¬ axy, with each of the 200-plus couples having their own star. A large parachute was sus¬ pended from the ceiling, which, in combina¬ tion with the band’s lights, helped to create an unearthly atmosphere on the faster num¬ bers and a very romantic setting on the slow songs. The band that provided the music and special effects was " Encore, " a group that was no stranger to West functions, having performed at previous dances. Knowing how the Indians like to party, " Encore " got the crowd moving with hot dance tunes " Oh, Sheila, " " 1999 " and " Sussudio. " To many in attendance, though, it was slow dancing to songs like " Cherish, " " Joanna " and " Who’s Holdin’ Donna Now? " that they’ll remember most. There was an aura about those in attendance that this would not be a night they would soon forget. In the words of junior James VanOsdol, " Maybe that stuff about these be¬ ing the best years of your life isn ' t such a lie after all.

PARENTS HIT THE BOOKS ONCE AGAIN On the evening of October 23, major confusion filled the halls of Niles West. The parents of Niles West students got a chance to experience a piece of their child’s day-to-day school life. Running through halls, ending up in the wrong place, and being late to class on top of it, were just a few things the parents encountered. They were just like incoming freshman coming to a new school. However, with the help of the cheerleaders, the parents came out smiling, knowing they were headed in the right direction. Many activities went on in the cafeteria that evening. Parents were able to meet with athletic teams and the different organizations, such as the Student Union, AFS, and the class cabinets. They were also able to listen to the orchestra perform. A fun and informative evening was had by all. Open House 133 Halloween turned out to be a day of creativity and surprise. Participating in the fun are seniors Carrie Kaplan as a playboy bunny, Lisa Sandlow as a doctor, Laurie Adams as static cling, and Jackie Rozencwajg as a baby. No, it is not Madonna, but it is close.

Students from all grade levels participated in this mysterious and magical day. SCARY SITUATION It was the night of the Black Sabbath. Witches and warlocks gathered around the cauldron and chanted in an unearthly manner. People in the village knew this was the day to hide their young. Witches would sacri¬ fice children from the villages to show their loyalty to their lord, Satan. It was day for the undead to celebrate their day of freedom from their natural dormant state. It was Halloween. Although Halloween is not celebrated with sacrifices anymore, it is celebrated among the living in various other ways. Parents usually dress up their children in costumes and take them begging for candy, " trick’ or treating. " This is an old custom, orignating from those days when the spirits of the underworld would come for children and parents would give them candy in¬ stead, so they wouldn’t take the offspring. Teenagers, especially at Niles West, celebrate in their own festive ways. Egg throws and shaving cream fights are popular during evening hours. " I love to chase the kids around when they come to my house. I put on my gorilla mask and toss eggs at them, " stated David Bloom. Cheerleading is not as easy as it looks as seniors Mark Poulakidas and David Weinberg find out. They also notice that the cheer- leading skirts do very little to keep their knees warm. Halloween 135 POW WOW 1985. A " CELEBRATION! " " Celebration,” the rock musical which depicted an orphan and his struggle to obtain the remnants of an orphanage in which he once lived, marked the theme for Pow Wow ' 85. Held on October 31 and November I and 2, the musical was based on a script written by playwright Tom Jones and its music was adopted from the works of composer Harvey Schmidt. The story’s plot focused upon an orphan, played by sophomore John Barba, and his promise to an old man, Mr. Rich, portrayed by sophomore Arthur Tiersky. The orphan promised to make Mr. Rich feel young again in return for the restoration of his lost home. In pursuit of this goal, the orphan received the aid of Potemkin, played by senior Paul Bouboutsis, and an angel, portrayed by sophomore Michelle Dayan. The mood of the story was further enhanced by the presence of a chorus dressed in masks and headdresses. Through the combined efforts of actors, crew and chorus members, the show ' s run proved a success. As senior Andy Mills, the musical’s technical director and set designer commended, " Celebration was not only more successful than originally thought, but also an experience that will long linger in the minds of those who participated.” Capturing the moment. Michelle Dayan sings to a packed house. Celebration drew large crowds during its three night run. 136 Celebration As cast members John Barba and Michelle Dayan take a break in the wings, the show continues on stage.

" Sophomore Greg Rudin shouted, " I sleep in the E.R.C. every day! " Senior Mike Cristante stated, " I crash out on the lounges in the Library. " Freshman Bob Faskos, a transfer student from Wyoming com¬ mented, " The best place to sleep is over there, yonder. " He said this while pointing to his home¬ room.

Here, a judge gets a closer look at a pie so he can judge its appearance. CHEFS COMPETE Wednesday, February 19 was the day and the student cafeteria was the place for the eleventh annual cherry pie contest. In the first phase of the contest, students from beginning foods classes and chefs courses completed baking cherry pies. Students from each class baked pies which were judged on appearance by in¬ structors from the Home Economics Depart¬ ment. The two best-looking pies were picked, and two winning chefs then combined their ex¬ pertise to participate in the contest. Finally, the cafeteria phase of the contest came. Pies were judges by a panel of teachers and administrators on the basis of technique, ap¬ pearance, and finally, taste. The winners were awarded with a plaque. Foods and chefs course instructor, Elizabeth Oldham, stated that the contest was a great way to introduce and pro¬ mote the foods classes to the students. The proud bakers of each pie line up next to their pies. Winning the Cherry Pie Contest is an honor for aspiring bakers. 140 Cherry Pie Contest •Ml School board members, faculty and administration serve as judges in the annual Cherry Pie Contest.

A SALUTE TO WALT DISNEY There was an element of magic felt in the air, as over three thousand elementary and pre-school children sat waiting in the auditorium for the curtain to rise and the show to begin. Childrens Theatre had a new twist to it. Instead of being a scripted play, it was composed of a medly of songs, paying a tribute to Walt Disney. The show was directed by Cynthia Phobin. Assistant to the director was Junior Abby Ivner. Technical Director was alum¬ ni Lee Goldberg. Assistant to the Technical Director was Andv Mills. Choreographer was Gretchen Glader. Assistant to Gretchen Glader was Andrea Field. Vocal Director was Sheri Owens, and her assistant was Millisa Rubens. Their was a talented cast of characters ranging from fresh¬ man to seniors. Peter Pan was played by Freshman Leila Stein. Pinocchio was played by Sophomore John Barba. Mary Pop- pins was played by Junior Rebecca Kolber, and Burt was played by Sophomore Matt Winer. Portraying Snow White was Senior Liz Kelley. Cinderella was played by Senior Lisa Ferrin, and her Fairy Godmother was played by Heather Doo¬ little.

FIERCE FINALS Though many teachers saw them as an efficient means of measuring acquired knowledge during a semester of a given course, many students saw final exams as a rather tedious chore. For example, junior Craig Keer said that he found them " ... mentally and physically draining - all I could do was watch cartoons afterward. " Sophomore Missy Rabin thought they were " ... a real pain, " and freshman Mark Adriani thought they were " ... just such a hassle. " Some didn’t seem to care. Senior Lisa Sandlow thought finals were only " a minor inconvenience, " and Jamie Bo- ton, also a senior, found them " a joke. " Like them or not, all students had to take final exams in all of their credited courses. Junior Andy Rudin probably summed up the situation best when he said, " I knew I had to take them, so I simply studied hard and did the best I could. " 144 Finals During finals, students find time to study anywhere. Senior George Marks makes good use of his time in the Deans’ office to study for his upcoming finals. Often help from a teacher can greatly assist a stu¬ dent. Here. Ms. Van Dorpe points out some mistakes to a student so he will be sure not to make them again in the future. Knowing that her English final will be tough one, sophomore Caryn Shiftman asks James Sweeney for some helpful hints. Finals are a time of major stress for some students. Bustakers have found that the half hour before homeroom is a very good time to finish up undone homework or to do some last minute studying. Some students do this in the hallway, while others go to the Library or Annex. It is often easier for some people to study by themselves. This student has found a quiet table to review his homework before the final.

Junior high school stu¬ dents completed the chorus. Oliver combined a vast number of students pulling different aspects of Niles West together. Mem¬ bers of music, drama, athletics, cheerleading and all different social strata were involved. Director of the musical was Robert Johnson. Vocal director was Sheri Owens. The band was under the direction of William Koch. Behind the scenes, Cindy Philbin and Lee Goldberg were co- technical directors. The theater department hired Mark Schwartz, a professional lighting director. Some of the stars of the show were Senior Andy Mills as Fagan, Jon Lisco as Bil Sykes, Paul Boubutsis as the Artful Dodger.

The purpose of this evening was to introduce the different courses and activities that will be available to the students in the years that they attend Niles West. Counselors met with parents and students in different areas around the school. They discussed topics such as the new graduation requirements, the grade-weight sys¬ tem, and the basic freshman cirriculum. Teachers from each department had demonstrations and discussions about their individual subjects. Foods classes had tempt¬ ing samples made by students available to the incoming freshmen and their parents. The physical education de¬ partment held a series of games keeping a carnival-like atmosphere in the gymna sium. In the cafeteria members from various clubs and activities like Basketball, German Club, and Student Union were stationed to answer questions and sign up interested stu¬ dents. The Mini Open House proved to be a great way to show the class of 1990 and their parents some different aspects of Niles West. Proud of their many conference and state titles, the Niles West Wres¬ tling team displays the symbol of their victories. Don t worry, kid. we won’t hurt you,” Varsity football players juniors Curt Takiguchi. Paul kasprak. and J.J.

Parents from the Booster Club sold various Niles West memorabilia throughout the night. The West word wants you! Senior Rhonda Bergman tries to recruit new members for the student run newspaper. Various clubs and sports, such as the Varsity Soccer Team, had displays and presentations for the students throughout the evening. One of the main objectives of Mini Open House is to introduce eighth graders to the extra-curricular activities that Niles West offers. A representative of the golf team, senior John Spagaletti demonstrates the many skills he has learned while on the team. Mini Open House gave eighth graders the chance to meet some upper classmen. The singing and dancing talents of Expressions were also displayed at Mini Open House. The eighth graders appreciated the efforts of senior Carrie Kaplan and sophomore Joy Grossberg and friends.

Benjamin and Julie raised the most money of all Niles West students to be used to restore the Statue of Liberty. Proudly displaying the Lady Liberty portrait that Niles West received for its participation in the Run for Liberty are sophomores Benjamin Salkin and Julie Doehler. LADY During this past year, the restoration of the Statue of Liberty became a very important matter. Various types of fund raisers took place all over the United States hoping to raise enough money. Niles West also partici¬ pated in the fund raising by entering the Run For Liber¬ ty. An assembly was held in the auditorium explaining what the run was about. Students were given several days to receive pledges from sponsors who would be willing to help. A specific amount of sponsors could win you a Run For Liberty button or T-shirt. The run took place on October 28 and 29, and all students ran wheth¬ er they had sponsors or not. Many teachers ran too. ’’Inspirational” music was played while students ran (or should I say walked) around the track. Although the fund raiser was for a good cause, it was not very successful. Some money was collected, but not as much as they had expected. However, the money that was obtained will be very useful and will serve an important purpose, the restoration of the Statue of Liberty! Athletic Director Gerald Turry congratulates Judy Sloan, who directed the Run for Liberty, on the success of the event. The Run for Liberty could not have occurred without the help and support of the gym teachers. . - Andree Abelkis Joseph Achett Bettina Adam Deanna Alterburg Angelika Antonokos Andy Apostolou Senada Arabelovic Jonathan Arendt Lori Aronson Mike Bartholomew Marty Bach Eunice Baek Denise Barrios Mike Bacan Joseph Bass Lisa Baum Christi Benedetti Debbie Berman Pam Berndt Jimmy Bibizas Corey Borin Benjamin Boshes Janene Breit Johathan Breitzer Prank Brodsky Kathy Brophy Jason Burk John Burkel Bob Burns Neil Butler Boadjee Calara Kathy Campbell Antoinette Canneila Marcos Canneila Erwin Chan Doreen Chen Julie Christensen Conny Chronopoulos Christina Chung Cecilia Cheng Mary Ellyn Coates Dora Connell Suzanne Covington Chris Curtis Kevin Curtis Julie Daehler Sarkis Danavi Susanne Davis Maida Delasalas Gail Dennis Jessica Dickstein Donna Eriksson Garrett Peinberg Pernado Pen Laura Perrin Lisa Perrin Esther Pineberg Lisa Pischbach Joel Pogelson Angela Portuna Anita Pratini Pam Prey Eva Gazdowicz Jason Gelber Andriani Georgakopolo Alan Goldenstein Joy Grossberg James Han Becki Hansen Kevin Hansen Joseph Hansen David Hansen Doris Haromi Andreas Harris Michael Havdala Karla Hellestrae Tim Hieber Carrie Hintzke Susan Hoerrmann Robert Holton Antoinette Hong Sharon Horiuchi Gayle Hortelano Humberto Hortua Tina Hrajnoha Kristina Hugel David Ivezic Steve Ivezic Jaewoo Jeong Brad Jones Matt Karlesky Ccott Katz Lenny Katz Richard Keaton Kevin Keidaicch Christine Kim Jim King Ron Kiss Matthew Klapman Julie Kohl John Korolis Richard Krerwicz Charlotte Kukulski Andy La Liberty John Lally Nick Langis Cheryl Lanski Kirsten Larson Daniel Larver Dave Lee Gina Lee James Lee Susan E.

Though many of the acts found themselves performing after very little prepara¬ tion, the second annual Niles West Gong Show still proved to be the talent showcase that all in attendance has expected. Acts ranged from the bizarre to the ridiculous. A vocal group pleased the crowd so much that they left the stage dodging dozens of thrown dimes. A trio of dancing aliens, a comical batch of nerds, and even a mime, who fortunately, was beat silly by members of his own act, highlighted the show. The winning act, ’’Scholastic Rockers” featuring seniors Jon Lisco, Garrett Feinberg and Ian Fa- loona, wowed the audience with riveting renditions of Saturday morning cartoon ditties from the past. Will the real Bruce Springsteen please stand up? The audience is confused as sophomore Arthur Tiersky does a touching rendition of " My Bar Mitzvah” to the tune of Springsteen’s " My Hometown.” The five-person panel of judges was comprised of Dr. Ring, principal. Dr. Stein, director of Language arts, Rita Stewart, director of student services, William Koch, band director, and Carl (Gong EmI) Geis, math wizard. The panel gonged many well-deserving acts and most of all agreed that they performed their job quite well. Few acts ran the Gong Show gauntlet and lived to tell the tale, but those who did had quite a tale to tell. In the words of Dale Sherman, a junior and surviving member of the act ’’Wham, Bam, Thank You, Mime-” ”lt was an experience like none I’ve ever had before or hope to again.” Obviously pleased with junior Mark Gussin’s guitar playing, M.C. James Puff shows his taste in music. Although he did not win, Mark was able to finish his performance before he was gonged. 158 Gong Show Hosting the Gong Show is a rough job, but somebody has to do it. Mr. Puff took on this difficult task for the second year in a row and pulled it off with style. " Nerds are people, too!” proclaims senior Dawn Mazzetta. De¬ spite some technical difficulties, this " Revenge of the Nerds” act was a big success. Who are these bubble headed aliens? Collecting third prize for their routine " I’m Praying to the Aliens” are seniors Andrea Poet, Karina Doyle, and Judy DeAcetis. The fans went crazy for the first place act, the " Schoolastic Rockers.” Seniors Garrett Fienberg. Jon Lisco. and Ian Faloona brought down the house and left the crowd ( 3 0n g $ how 159 screaming for more. 160 The Turnabout Dance, planned by Student Union, turned out to be one of the most memorable events of the year. Moving to the beat of their favorite tune are seniors George Kotsiopoulos and Steph¬ anie Leader. Freshmen Mindy Grossberg and Rob Mandell pause for a quick picture before dancing to the music of this year s band, the Yanks. Turnabout was a popular event among underclassmen as well as juniors and seniors. Not exactly the next Bruce Springsteen, but the music of the Yanks was good and easy to dance to. The students appreciated a live band instead of the standard D.J. that is always present at the bashes. Excited, but exhausted are freshmen Kevin Hansen and Julie Wiltgen. This year’s Turnabout was a magical trip through Candyland. " Is everybody having fun?” the lead singer from Yanks questions. The students answer with a resounding. “Yes ” CANDY- DANCE Turnabout, what is turnabout? It is exactly what it says, the reverse of the normal formal dance. The girls ask the guys and the guys turn them down or they don’t, depending on who has asked them. This Years turnabout was run by student union who have sponsered the majority of the activities this year. The theme was Willie Wonka: a trip through candyland, fea¬ turing the Yanks. The Yanks of course were the musical entertainment of the evening. According to some, they were a very enjoyable part of their candyland voy¬ age. Adam Zimmerman re¬ marked, " they did not play the top 40, they played stuff that, to me, went over very well. " Others were not so elated with the group. Senior Pam So- tiropoulos was one of them, " they’re weren ' t enough slow songs’’ was her brief critical remark. But as with all candies, things that are good don’t last too long. Eventually the Willie Wonka trip ended leaving many people with memories that they may never forget. N A " golden ticket” was this year’s pass into Turnabout. Here, freshmen Marina Grinshpun and Jimmy Bibizas wait to get into the dance. Admiring the dance decorations and centerpieces are junior Cecile Yoon and her date. Steve Alschuler. Many students thought that the candy dispersed throughout the dance was a nice touch. Turnabout 161 THE YEAR IN SPORTS W Sport Executing his professional baseball knowledge, this player scores and brings home another victory for the Indians. ' TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME” " Take me out to the ball game, Take me out to the crowd ... " Yes, these are the first two lines to the song we all know. However, for sophomore and freshman baseball players, these words mean little. For these dedicated ball players who practice hitting a curve outside in the forty- degree weather the only reason for playing the game, is the joy of playing. Head Coach Klebba summed it up by saying, " High School baseball is not a spectator sport. The players are there because they enjoy playing the game, not because of the glory and recognition they get. " Coach Klebba explained that one of their goals was to have fun and to win as many games as possible. Some of the boys that helped do the job were Craig Harris, Brian Israel, George Langis, and Paul Kim. On the J.V. and Varsity levels coached by Mr. Galla and Mr. Nelson the players used the skills that they had mas¬ tered during their previous years to win all their games. Some outstanding players were Seniors Joe Lockner, Rick Mayburn, Jeff Lowell and Tom Merkel. When these ball players grow up and have their grand¬ children on their knees, do you think they will tell them, " Son, I used to play ball in forty-degree weather for fun? " . You bet your peanuts and cracker jacks on it. Practicing is a major part of team work which leads to success, Senior Joe Lochner practices to improve his pitching. Boys Baseball Front row: B.

This makes it difficult for the coach, players, and everyone else included with the program. When junior Greg Czernik was asked what he thought about this situation, he replied, " It is difficult to adjust to a new coach and a whole new system, but I think we did a good job becoming accostumed to Coach Meyer’s new offense. Even though our record may not show it, we worked extremely hard during practice and games, and have become a respected basketball team.” When Coach Meyer was asked what the school’s team lacked, he replied, ’’There needs to be more basketball played in the community before High School level. They are physically not a very tall team, so we have to concentrate on the skill level and give the team experience.” The basketball players on the Junior Varsity Team felt the same way. Junior Jeff Altschul said, ’’I’m very excited about the new season and the new coach. It is honor to play for Coach Meyer. I hope to be part of the rebuilding of the basketball team’s winning tradition at Niles West.” If past accomplishments by the Meyer family dictate the future, Niles West fans will have a lot to look forward to the next few years. 168 Boys Basketball While trying to beat top ranked Highland Park, senior John Hahn attempts a jumpshot.

Coaches Miner, Opels, and Doyle endlessly drilled the team, practicing until the play¬ ers automatically had the plays in their heads. The experience and leadership developed during the first two years pays off in the junior and senior seasons. " The practices were tiring but we all know that it is for the good of the team,” said freshman Max Schulman. The coaches tried to pound the thought of " playing for the team” into the players, and after two years the players learned that there is no " I” in the word team. This concept remains as one of the main guidelines of varsity sports. 170 Boys Basketball Looking for an open player is sophomore Brian Israel. Brian has been playing outstanding this season. Taking the advantage at the freethrow line is sophomore Brad Kave. This is Brad’s second year on the team. Back Row: Coach Oples. J. Ciemny. J. Lally. A. Lundsberg. D. Klemenz.

Boys Basketball 171 INTENSITY KEY WORD " Intensity” was the word you heard echo from the huddle of the Girls Varsity Basketball Team. They played with an intense style. The team, with their hardwork and dedication, showed great talent throughout the season. Coach Earl led the team to many victories. The music they played inspired them at each practice and before every game, as they ran up and down the court. Although the workouts were tough, the team stuck together and made it through a season full of great memories. With the absence of Kathy Sokalski, the Indians strived to work harder and overcompensate for her loss. " It made us a stronger character team,” stated junior Diane Field. The Evanston Tournament proved to be a thrilling exper¬ ience. Despite the many absences, the team managed to pull together and take a third place. " The team was hard working and played well together. Even though the team is young, we get better at each prac¬ tice,” commented sophomore forward Linda Steiner. Out¬ standing players were Linda Steiner, Diane Field, and Helen Georgakopoulus. 01 ANs 14 01 A $ r 42 9 , 01 H 0 I ANs _ • I. 35 i 21 tyjflk 5 (M%0 1 _ ■ v n n 31 , : Front row: J. Israel. A.

Most of the basketball players agreed that the practices were tough, but the key to success meant hours of practice. The team was lead by Coach Klebba-, " Our coach was very fair in giving us all equal amount of playing time throughout the games,” commented sophomore guard Claudia Ridley.” I think our future looks very promis¬ ing.” Key players were Michelle Alday, Claudia Ridley, and Mindy Shiff¬ man.

In the conference meet they tied for third which placed them fourth in the conference itself. Freshman Peggy Campbell, Debbie Pozdol. and Junior Kathy Campbell, were All-Conference. Captains Felicia Bakshy and Andrea Poet were outstanding leaders. While the teachers were on strike, both the girls and boys on the team organized the Indian Invite and hosted it all on their own. Two highlights were Peggy Camp¬ bell’s first place win in the freshman confer¬ ence meet and Debbie Pozdol’s fourth. " It was a super year.” replied Flead Coach Judi Sloan, " We had an abundance of young runners, the largest group since the team started. There will definitely be improvement next year. There are a lot of new runners plus this was a very good year. " Not only did the runners participate in meets, but they also observed the state meet in Peoria and went to Oglesby during the sum¬ mer. Their record in dual meets resulted in an 8:2 record!

Lee led the team for three straight years and ev en qualifyed for the state sectional. " We had a good year even though we had some bad races but usually we did well as a team. " stated Rocky Lee. The out¬ standing runners included senior Sean Samuel, Juniors Sung Lee, and Mark Kim. Sophomores turned out another fine season with a record of 9-3. They had a challenging season, but worked hard and accomplished many of their goals. The team was led by outstand¬ ing runner Steve Rosen. " We had a very successful season. We all worked hard and are looking forward to the next season " , sophomore Brian Mittleman commented. Varsity Coach Savage is getting ready to start the races in a few minutes.

" Every game is the most important game of the season. We must prepare for each and every game . . . we can ' t let ourselves down after a loss. We have to hold our heads high and come back alive, " stated coach Richard¬ son during a hot, summertime practice be¬ fore their first game against Maine East. Niles West’s strong offense was headed by the likes of seniors Joe Barber, Doug St. Ma¬ rie, Jeff Lowell and Tom Merkel. The equally strong defense was spearheaded by Ray Gi- derof, Gary Paustian, Mike Kirchens, Chris Cordes and J.J. McColloh. In the Homecoming game, the Indians defeat¬ ed the Maine West Warriors by a score of 19- 6. This was the season’s final game, but not its final honor to the Indians. Named as " All- Conference " were Jeff Lowell, Doug St. Ma¬ rie, Ray Giderof, Rick Maybrun and J.J. McColloh. All in all, the season was looked upon as posi¬ tive. Senior Jeff Lowell stated that " Even if our record didn’t show it, we still had a pret¬ ty good season ... we had good talent and we were strong at the end ... we did the best we could considering the strike. " The Niles West Indians ended the season, then, with what was both a victory on the field and a personal victory for knowing they had done their best.

TEAM GAINS EXPERIENCE Being a member of the Junior Varsity Football Team wasn’t easy for most players. Playing time was limited and the J.V. team played only four games. The reasons for this included a limited schedule to begin with and the obvious interruption of the strike. J.V. players were present at every practice and worked just as hard as the varsity players. However, they received only a small portion of the recognition. The Junior Varsity Team was under the direction of Coach Fred Crusunski. The team lost the four games they played. Most team members felt that not enough time was available for them to practice, leaving them unprepared for their games. Most players also agreed that their losses were due to their disorganized teams. The J.V. players realized, however, that they are the future Varsity Foot¬ ball Team. They are all very hopefull for a better record next year, but agree that some major changes must occur. Junior player B.J. Miller stated, " I would expect a drastic change between this year and next in the football pro¬ gram.” Sophomore Todd Mown The play having th sl tackle to make it third with th Indians m m %, m ' ' i« ss ■ 7 Taking a hand-off from the quarterback.

What do these three terms have in common? They all per¬ tain to the sport of golf. Golf calls for a lot of skill and coordination, as well as a steady arm and accurate judging distance. Several factors affected their season. The strike had a major effect as there was a poor turn-out from the sophomore class. They were also in the toughest conference in the state. Despite these circumstances, two seniors, David Cohen and John Spago- letti qualified for sectionals. The team played 12 tournaments and won three. When asked what he thought about the team’s season, Junior Tom Joseph replied, " We had the talent, but we just didn’t ap¬ ply it.” R. Friedman uses the correct position in order to hit the ball at the right angle.

Posner, along with freshmen, Laura Wagner and Peggy Campbell showed some outstanding talent and enthusiasm out of the ten girls on the team. " If we all stick together, next year should be very promising, " commented freshmen Shannon Crowley. Some of the outstanding members were seniors Lori Aronson, Ingrid Helgeson, Stephanie Leader and juniors Kathy Campbell and Lauri Margolin. Stated Head Coach Jodi Nebbia, " I ' m real excited about the talent on this year’s team. We will miss our four graduating seniors but our sophomores and juniors are ready to step in and fill the spots. " The team had a lot of enthusiasm and dedication. All their hard work paid off when they placed second in districts. Stated Stephanie Leader, " Of my four years on the team, this year was definitely the most fun. There was a feeling of real closeness among us. Our closeness and team spirit helped us to reach our final goal-to defeat Niles North in our Regional Meet!

This year they worked as a team whose goals were to win conference, qualify for sectionals, and have individuals qualify for state. Some of the outstanding team members included Tom Joseph, Dennis Maybrun, Bob Krebs, Marty Fenton, Scott Jackson, and Sung Kim. Bob Krebs stated, " I am involved in this sport because I feel gymnastics is unique and different than any other involves much talent and the Niles West team has what it takes to do the job. " The Sophomore gymnastics team, coached by Louis Torres, was physically strong and mentally tenacious. They set their individual and team goals and were excited about them. Stated coach Torres, " Sports are fun and challenging. I like to see young men who are tough enough physically and mentally to handle the challenges of the great sport of gymnastics.

KICKERS GIVE OPPONENTS " THE BOOT” The Boys’ Varsity Soccer Team had what senior co-captain Mike Reinhardt called " a season of ups and downs.” The team compiled an overall record of 8- 10 - 1 . Along with all the other fall sports teams the strike had a major effect on the soccer season. The team was able to make up the games lost but they had to play five conference games in four days. " For the most part of the regular season our schedule was filled with very tough games, " stated Reinhardt. In one week the team beat the number nine ranked team in the state Ne w Trier, by a score of 1-0, number 20 ranked Loyola, 5-2, and the number 24 ranked team Oak Park 3-1, at home. " Our victory over New Trier was our big¬ gest win as a team. It meant a lot to the seniors and Coach Brennan to beat them in their home field. " Many of the senior members on the team were part of the Freshmen A soccer team that went undefeated. Senior Joe Lochner warms up for the game. Lochner received an honorable mention in the state soccer competition. Boys Soccer 193 KICKING OFF THE SEASON Ability and speed is what a sport needs, along with team¬ work, and the Girls Varsity Soccer had it all. " We play to win, but we have fun when we play. It’s exciting to play in a sport that is rapidly increasing in popularity across America. Some of my best high school memories were made with other members of the team, " answered Jenni¬ fer Lund in response to the above. The kickers maintained the intensity and discipline needed to sustain their po¬ tent, short-passing game. " The team played with determi¬ nation and dedication, " one spectator said. The team maintained their competitiveness at the state level. Goal¬ ie Karina Doyle, and Defenders Peg Donath, Cynthia Pa- poutsakis, and Cathy Tamraz were outstanding team members. " The girls’ soccer team defies words, " re¬ sponded Doyle. " We play to have fun, and because of our high level of enthusiasm — combined with talent — we have been able to remain competitive with some of the best teams in the state. That’s what athletics are all about. " Coach Joe Brennan is happy that the team has come along so far, " from club to varsity. From local recog¬ nition to all conference, all state and all-american. Now we are on the verge of an official state tournament. Front row: K. Bychowski. G. Sotiropoulos, J. Nock, P. Sotiropoulos, K. Strusiner. Middle row: K. Doyle, C. Papodapoulos, L. Piper, K.

Israel It’s a warm and sunny day and your friends are sitting in the shade, drinking a coke, and discussing the up coming week-end events. Suddenly, you hear a sharp crack and you hear the umpire yell, " Home run! " You look up just in time to see the ball flying over the head of the center fielder. You pick up your belongings and head for home. Another Niles West victory. If what you just read sounds familiar or if you lived through it every few days, then you were probably associ¬ ated with the Girl’s Softball Team. The team was made up of a group of girls who worked together like a family to secure a victory for West every time they went out on the field. Diane Mimp, senior softball player, states, " I like playing on the Niles West team because we are just that-a team, and not a group of individuals. Like one big family. " The softball coach, new addition Paula Sfickas, stated, " I want to teach the players the fun of athletic competition. The combined talent and enthusiasm make coaching soft- ball all worth while.

Though some meets and practices were missed because of the strike, the girls made it through the season with a record, and were able to place in the conference meet. No matter what the score, the team stuck together and was always full of spirit, thanks to senior captains Katie Argetsinger and Karina Doyle. " It was a good season overall with victories over Niles North, Waukegaun East, and Elk Grove, " stated Coach Don Larson. Doyle finished the season by placing 1st in conference and 6th in sectionals. Senior Diane Rubenstein finished 5th in conference and 12th in sectionals, thanks to the coaching of Jodi Nebia. Assistant Coach Cami Axelson also did a fine job keeping the junior varsity team together. " Though it is only my first year on the team, I ' m already looking forward to the next season, " stated Freshman Marny Pierini. Pierini, along with freshman Patty Tzortzis, competed at the varsity level and excelled in competition. Tzortzis placed 8th at the New Trier Freshman Invitational and 12th in conference. Other strong and promising swimmers were sophomore Wendy Martin who broke three school records and placed 4th in conference.

Coach Steve Ramseyer commented, " With a little practice and hardwork, we have a great chance to win conference. " The highlight of the season was when they beat Deerfield, a top ranked team in conference. The team was led by a lot of swimmers including freshman Andy Browder. The Junior Varsity Team opened the season with a 2 - 2 record. They had a tough early loss against Deerfield, losing only by two points, but came back with a strong victory against Norte Dame. The Team’s best event was the relay race anchored by Sophomore Art Sanchez along with Junior Mike Gut who had competed in state last year. The Varsity Team had a start of a 5-0 record. Winning their first five meets was difficult because their schedule in¬ cluded swimming against Maine East and Glenbrook South, two strong rivals. Senior Alan Dassow led the team to many victories and broke many records himself. " He was one of the best swim¬ mers I have ever seen. " Said Coach Don Larson.

" The success of the Indians will depend on the development of our younger players, so we are counting on Izenstark and Malkin to help motivate the team, " stated varsity Coach Frank Sacks. " The goals that I have for the Frosh Soph Team are to improve the strokes and skills of each player and to have a winning record for the season, " added Frosh Soph Coach Len Winans.

Mastering their skills, disciplin¬ ing themselves, and working together like a family were all part of going the distance and becoming a winner. The 1986 track team was not large in number, but it was strong in quality athletes with the potential to be con¬ ference champions. " We have many outstanding athletes on our team. If everyone performs to her ability, we should be a strong challenger for the conference championship. Also, sev¬ eral of our team members have poten¬ tial to be state qualifiers, " comment¬ ed Coach Jean Armour. " The reason I decided to join track was because I like to run and I like the intense competion. I also love to win. Niles West is a very nice school and I’m glad to be on its team, " stated Senior Rena Andrews. Senior high jumper Sue Maliwanag added, " I have high expections for this year’s track team, not only competitively, but non- competitively as well. I feel it is as important to have friends from other schools as being a good sportsman. The 1986 Track Team is very unified and family-like. I know that this year will be successful. " Track is an exciting sport where an athlete can test her ability against other individuals. Some outstanding members were Laura Oroni, Kathy Campbell, Sarah Kim, and Debbie Blonder. Freshman Peggy Campbell puts in her spikes before the big race. Besides run¬ ning. Peggy also does the high jump. Sophomore Sara Kim springs into palce to get her personal best jump.

KEEPING THE PACE " Distance and middle distance running takes more dis¬ cipline and hard work than most other sports’, " explained Track Coach Pat Savage. Because of this, practices were more difficult and demanding this year than in past years, which resulted in achieving the team’s goal of faster times and better placing in the meets. Another factor that helped in achieving this goal was that the athletes seemed more dedicated. Their goals were more realistic and they had a winning attitude, as typified by Senior Rockey Lee, who stated, " I am involved in distance running because I love to run and because Coach Savage has motivated me to work hard to improve and to qualify for the state meets. " There were approximately 15 team members, headed by Coach Pat Savage and Assistant Coach Ron Campbell. Some of the outstanding team members were Senior Rocky Lee, Juniors Seung Lee and Mark Kim and Sopho¬ more Steve Rosen. Track is a team when individuals have success. So, having more successful individuals will give you a better team like the one here at Niles West! 208 Boys Track Junior Kurt Takiguchi sprints the last leg of his race. Winning this race could be the ticket to the 1988 Olympics. w Speed, agility, and endurance are three characteristics a person needs to be on the track team. Sophomores Ben Yashon, Larry Meyer, Doug Hirsh, Steve Rosen, and Scott Poulos strongly exemplify these characteris¬ tics. Coach Campbell, track team coach for all levels, was asked how the track team would do this year. He replied, " We are in year two of a rebuilding program. Our goal is to be competitive in invitational meets on the frosh soph level. " In its first two meets of the season the track team was victorious over both Sullivan and Bakesville.

It paid off. Niles West has won many conference titles and regional titles. According to senior Barry Albalch, " Winning is part of our thinking? it has been a tradition at Niles West.” This season’s team had a strong nucleus of returning varsity seniors, including Barry Albach, Scott Binstock, Dean Bravos, Eric Nutting, Mike Wiltgen, and Doug St. Marie.

The American Field Service is an organization to join for new and incredi¬ ble experiences. During the school year exchange students from countries around the world live at a student’s house. The exchange students are ’adopted’ by the student’s fam¬ ily. The exchange students attend school and are able to experience first hand the American way of life. Likewise, in the summer for three months, students from West travel to countries all around the world. They have the same oppur- tunity to experience new cultures and lifestyles. The co-sponsors for AFS were Mr. Murphy and Mrs. Carr. The President of the club was Mr. Kerstein. Meetings were held various days after school and on Wednesday nights. Some of the club’s fundraisers were selling raffle tickets and selling Halloween-O-Grams. One activity the group partici¬ pated in was going downtown and showing the exchange students around the city. The club’s goals are to raise more money to send more students away and to get more stu¬ dents involved. The two students going away this year are Patricia Kerstein and Andrea Wollenberg.

What was different about the Chess Club in the 1985-86 school year? Nothing. In fact, this club wouldn’t have had it any other way. They got together for one pur¬ pose, and one purpose only: chess, the sport of Kings. The Niles West Chess Club, a member of the North Suburban Chess League, played twelve matches in the 1985-86 season. Al¬ though the team wasn’t as strong as had been anticipated, due to the loss of two members from the previous season, the club finished respectably. In April, the club ended the season with the State High School Tournament at Evanston High School. The dedication so often associated with the Chess Club was best summed up by Fred Delphin, captain of the team, who said, ”1 wish to contribute all I can to im¬ prove the game.” TOPICS r. M. rvwv nn The prospect of nuclear war. the Reagan-Gor- bachev summit meeting, the comprehensive test ban treaty and the crisis in Central Amer¬ ica were just some of the main topics dis¬ cussed by Current Event Club members last year. " The club proved a unique forum for the discussion of those relevant issues. " ex¬ plained senior participant Eric Kopfstein. Members not only expanded their knowledge concerning world issues through group inter¬ views. discussions and films, but were also urged to form individual opinions. " The club encouraged critical thinking, exposing stu¬ dents to more controversial subjects than they would normally encounter in day-to-day classroom activities. " verified Tom McMa¬ hon, the club’s sponsor. Approximately 20 students participated in the bi-weekly. Wednesday afternoon meetings. As the young club ' s exposure slowly grew, McMahon clarified that he viewed the club as an adequate supplement to classroom activi¬ ties " whose main intent was the expansion of knowledge through the interpretation and dis¬ cussion of recent world developments.

J U OF C COACH REALLY HELPS A new resolution involving the quality of water in the United States was just one of the many changes Niles West traditional debaters faced this past year. The most significant change involved the addition of new head coach Scott Durschlag, a student at the University of Chicago. " Getting a new coach really helped our team ’ explained senior Sonja Bychkov, the team’s president. " Scott brought a lot of new ideas and worked really hard with us. " Another change involved the team’s expansion to the Lincoln Douglas Debate. Under the instruction of co¬ coach James Batts, a few members participated in this new form, which, unlike traditional, involved the dis¬ cussion of moral issues based on liberty, equality and justice, rather than factual ones concerning nuclear war and water contamination. The L.D. debating was done on an individual basis without the need of a part¬ ner as traditional form required. " I thought the oppor¬ tunity to finally participate in L.D. was great, " com¬ mented one varsity team member. " It offered me the opportunity to see what I could really accomplish on my own.’’ Although the traditional sector of the team failed to reach its goal of establishing a national contender to represent West in any of the three competing divi¬ sions, members such as sophomore Greg Rosow felt ’’next year will prove more rewarding. " Senior debater Judith Mann smiles at accomplishments of the club. Debate 225 MATH TEAM Over the years, the Math Team has expanded its number of participants and its involvement in competitions. The 50-75 students included a variety of freshmen, sopho¬ mores and upperclassmen. " It is enjoyable working with math team members because we spend our entire energy on problem solving, " stated one of the team’s sponsors. " Since I’m not taking any math courses this year, I get my " dose " on the math team, plus, I have a lot of fun, " said senior and club Vice-President Andy Mills. " Taking math exams may be a strange way to spend an evening, but for me, Math Team has been interesting, challenging, and rewarding, " state d club president senior Jerry Kang. 226 Mathematics Team Mr. Filliman helps the Math Team prepare for a meet. Members of the team had to practice for hours after school to get ready for statewide and national competitions. A STRONG, HEAVY Mr. Geis tallies the scores after an intense practice for the Academic Bowl Team. His first year as co-sponsor, Mr. Geis has contributed an enormous amount of help to the team. COMPETITION If you have a strong stomach for heavy competition, then you are probably an avid follower of the Aca¬ demic Competition Club. The club is a compilation of sharp, well-rounded members with quick recall. Ian Faloona’s opinion of himself and his teammates was this. " We are all a bunch of nervous basket cases because each question has the paramount intensity of a $500 Double Jeopardy. " The club tried a few new things this year. First on the list was the new coach. Carl Geis. Commented Geis, " I was very excited about coaching the club. We had some very adept members this year. " As the result of an exciting new coach and the well-qualified, experienced coach, Mrs. Shapiro, the club was psyched for the Stevenson Academic Bowl, the Hillsboro and Bradley Bourbon- nais Bowls, and national contests in which the club competed via computer. Although the club began meeting in late November, most competitions took place in the spring. Senior Kim Liou does some quick figuring on paper, then pushes his buzzer. His thinking has been a valuable asset for the club. Academic Competition Club 221 FLY THE FRIENDLY SKIES Once again the Aeronautics Club flew the skies. The leaders of this year’s flight plan were pilot, junior Young-Sik Whang; co-pilot, junior Dawn llling and air traffic controller, science teacher Wayne Rogoski. The two general types of aircraft in flight and under con¬ struction were rockets and line-controlled airplanes, both of which were flown on a regular basis. Sponser Wayne Rogoski stated, " The motto of this club is The sky’s the limit.’ We have proven this time and time again with such successes as Slotkowski, our dirigble, and our Polack series of nine-foot rockets.” The club hoped to challenge the crafting and flying skills of the crew by staging competitions. They also took time to visit the Air Museum, hobby conventions, and military aid stations. Front Row: Vince Fang, Michelle Yaras, Demetrios Limber, Andreas Papa- dakis, Jason Hsu.

Students and faculty were sup¬ posed to give up their bad habit of smoking, for one day. When asked what he thought about the Great American Smoke-Out, Junior Tom Abelson replied, " The smokeout was a very groovy idea, and I wish the period (to help smokers) would be longer. " The other activities planned by the 20 members of the club were helping with the blood drive, planning a fund-raising activity, and hosting speak¬ ers in medical careers. The officers were President Mike Edwards, Vice-President Debbie Virchinsky, and Secre¬ tary Cecile Yoon. Ecology Club member Tracy Rialing, Mr. Firak, Steve Frankel, Don Gutterman, Michele Reitman. An experiment for learning experience. ECOLOGY CLUB EDUCATIONAL The Ecology Club was not only educational, but it was also a lot of fun. " We usually have field trips to places of our choice. We have fun with friends and learn in the meantime, " explained club member Dawn llling. The club was lead by Gerald Firak, teacher of biology and earth science at Niles West, and has seven members. This makes it small enough to go without club officers and to make decisions by concensus. Ecology is the study of living organisms, plants and animals, and their relationship to the environment. Basical!, it’s the study of nature. The club made several field trips, including a trip to Lincoln Park Zoo and a visit to the Adler Planetarium to see the Halley’s Comet presentation. The members also planned to take a spring trip to the Starved Rock area. In addition, the club also did some environmental studies at the school prairie. As for benefits to its members, Steve Frankel put it this way, " The Ecology Club taught me to appreciate, instead of trying to exploit, nature. " Don Gutterman checks the condition of the plant from the prairie. Ecology Club 229 WEST OF EDENS So you enjoy creative challenges? Do you love to see your name in print? Are you an artist?

It was made up of fifty-five students of all ages. Officers included President Kim Liou, Vice-president Andy Mills, Secretary David Rubin and Treasurer Torrey Browder. The NHS helped others by giving parties for disadvantaged children, sponsoring a blood drive, and collecting canned food and toys for needy citizens. They also helped promote school spirit with a round- robin racquetball tournament and a junior high spelling bee.

The tutoring club is there to do just that, help people. Last year 21 members gave their free time and stayed after school to help fellow students with their studies. The five board members, Kim Liou, Jerry Kang, Nancy Goren, Natalie Medbray, and Nina Liou, handled the scheduling, matching those needing help with tutors who were free the same periods. Stating why he joined the club was Jerry Kang. " Since tutoring is mutually beneficial, I have learned a great deal by helping other students in their classwork. " It is evi¬ dent that the Tutors Club is an organization of hard-working and intelligent students who are willing to help others. National Honor Society Tutors Club 231 ’ Binding Arbitration Ends Strike ' ’’Mistrial De¬ clared in Richardi Case ' ’’Should AIDS Victims Attend School?

" were just some of the eye-catching headlines used by West Word edi¬ tors in addressing many of the controversial subjects which developed during the 1985 school year. Experimenting with new graphic designs and expanding upon its editorial staff, the West Word created 16 quality issues includ¬ ing a special holiday issue and a senior issue. According to West Word Adviser Jerome Orr, the newspaper’s improvement was the result of a hard-working staff of reporters who produced well-written stories, and a diligent editorial board which included: co-editor-in-chiefs, sen¬ iors Rhonda Bergman and Jonathan Lisco-, news editor, junior Diane Smason-, editorial directors, sophomore Bryan Mittelman and senior June Yang; features editors, senior John Axelrad and sophomore Marc Fienberg-, business editor, sen¬ ior Garrett Fienberg-, sports editors, sophomore Larry Mills and senior Judy Zemsky-, copy edi¬ tor, senior Andy Mills, and circulation editor, junior Jeanie Ahn. ’’The West Word was fortu¬ nate to have several four-year staff members and editors as well as a seasoned group of fact¬ finding reporters, " Orr commented.

With a two week strike, production was drastically held back, and it was hard to get back into the swing of things. Fantastic staff members held up during those hard times when deadlines had to be made, and editors always kept in touch with their staff. 25 years of celebration is not an easy thing to bring together, especially when fash ions and fads have changed so much, but our silver anniversary book has much to offer, and much to cherish. Thank you staff for trying your hardest when times were really tough. Stephanie Leader, Laurie Adams, Co- Editors-in-Chief.

They are generally enthusiastic, motivated, and committed individuals.” Junior Helaine Miller added, " The purpose of this activity was to teach leadership not only in the gym, but in life.” Each Leader spent at least six weeks leading freshman or sophomore class.

To be a member of this proud group, student athletes from any sport must have earned a varsity letter. N-Club members raised funds by working the candy and popcorn concessions for girls’ home basketball games. They sponsored an all-school volleyball tournament and the annual N-Club vs. faculty basketball game. ' N-Club is a good organization for student athletes who want to get involved in school activities,” concluded senior member Mike Kirchens.

Every night before a football game, 25 students, all members of Mid¬ night Riders, drove to each Varsity play¬ er’s house with personal posters and at least twenty rolls of toilet paper. Very qui¬ etly they disposed of all the toilet paper in the player’s trees, grass, doors, and ever¬ ything else they could throw it around. Without a noise the girls would get back into their cars. It was not until they were all ready to leave that they simultaneously honked their horns. The loud honking con¬ tinued until they were at least a block away. " We had a great time t-ping for the players. We had one of the largest Midnight Riders groups yet. I think everyone got close as a group-not all those little cliques. It helped our class as a whole a lot,” said senior Cathy Tamraz. Meetings to organize and make posters were held once a week at Tamraz’s house. Each member had a Mid¬ night Rider jersey which was worn on the days of games. Member Debbie Shugall felt, " I think that doing the players’ houses really helped to boost their spirits. It made them feel that we really supported them and cared if they won or lost.” N-Club Midnight Riders Front Row: Lisa Falleroni, MicFiele Goldberg, Laurie Adams, Jenni Holt.

The Timers’ Club, sponsored by Shirly Daniel, hosted all of the home swim meets. They helped out by setting up the timing pads, putting out the chairs, and timing the meets. When asked why he joined, senior John Tzortzis said, " It ' s the best way to cheer for the team.” With the Timers’ Clubs help, the meets were well organized and ran smoothly. According to Daniel, ’’Without the timers, we could not have run the home swim meets.” Riders admire the job they have done; all with Posh Puff toilet paper! Art students set up display. GUARD CLUB TAKES RESPONSIBILITY While most of us enjoyed sleeping late on Saturday mornings, the Niles West Guard Club was wide awake and ready to teach three forty-five minute sessions of swimming lessons to chil¬ dren. Many students were involved and each was given five to eight children, from ages three to thirteen. The members of the club took responsibility for their understudies and enjoyed the task. They went from teaching kids how to float to teach¬ ing the four basic strokes: back, breast, butterfly, and frees¬ tyle. The thirteen members, sponsored by Shirley Daniel, gained a sense of real responsibility. The Guard Club was kind of a teaching class, too, as senior Nicki Theodore said, ”1 enjoyed helping people learn, I want to pursue teaching.” Front Row: Ms. LaManna, Linda Sax, Laurie Chertow, Georgia Sotiropoulos, Cynthia Papoutsakis, Myra Kahn, Aida Santillan Second Row: Jacqueline LaManna, Gina Bravos, Amy Chertow.

Maria Lereno WITHOUT THEM; DISASTER! _ ’’Without the girls our meets would have been a disaster,” said sophomore George Santillan about the wrestlettes. The wrest- lettes not only kept score, but cheered on the team, gave the wrestlers a lot of support, and brought fans to the meets. They were the wrestlers’ biggest fans. The wrestlettes also spon¬ sored Parents’ Night and sold taffy apples. There were approximately 60 girls, with no division of grade. There were more people, expecially underclassmen, then last year. ’’Being a wrestlette was not only fun, but a great way to get involved in sports and show our school spirit,” said sopho¬ mores Karin Orsic and Rachel Greenspan. Vice-president was Georgia Sotiropoulos. The president was Aida Santillan? the secretary was Chris Miller and treasurer was Cynthia Papoutsakis.

Enthusiasm, energy, and school spirit were displayed throughout the past year by the varsity, sophomore, and freshmen cheerleaders of Niles West. They did a fantastic job of arousing spirit at all football and basketball games, as well as at pep assemblies, the Homecoming parade, and many other activities. As varsity coach Marlene Feldman stated, ’The cheer¬ leaders’ dedication to school spirit is illustrated, in part, by their many tire¬ less hours of practice perfecting rou¬ tines. They are an energetic asset to Niles West.” The varsity squad with the help of captains Carrie Kaplan and Kris Juste- sen, did an exceptional job at all their games.

Not only did they partici¬ pate in all game half-times for the football and bas¬ ketball seasons, but they were also involved with pep assemblies and the Homecoming parade. Along with these activities, they performed with the marching band in two competitions, taking second and sev¬ enth place. Said Barranco about her girls, " I have twenty-two of the best daughters anyone could ask for. They’re independent girls that get things done.” The squad worked together to make a suc¬ cess of all their activities. They are like one happy family. Said senior Rachel Garcia, " I’ve been on the squad for three years and it’s been the most reward¬ ing part of my high school career.” And junior Devra Resnick summed it up saying, " Not only do we per¬ form together, but the whole squad is like a group of sisters. We all get along great.” The pom pon squad proved that this was their year by taking all first- place awards at camp, perfecting new and harder routines, and performing with a flair that was their’s alone. Their greatest feat was promoting school spir¬ it with enthusiasm that no one could equal. All smiles are senior pom pon captains Yung-me Suh and Jenni Holt. These girls have worked hard throughout the year to keep the squad together. Pom Pon 239 MORNING BASKETBALL - A WORKOUT!

According to David Lee, Niles West Social worker and head of the pro¬ gram, " The goal of the program is to help students to devel¬ op a more positive self-concept, make good judgments, de¬ velop better social skills, and to become more responsible ' Participating students met once a week after school for an hour. At the meetings students learned about problem solv¬ ing, decision making and group activities and experiences. Next year student leaders will go to study halls to recruit students. The peer counseling groups will meet once a week for 10-12 weeks. Peer-Counsel 243 Tina Anton. Georgette Pagos, and Tamara Moss discuss some soothing advice during peer-counseling. The colorful backgrounds at the home football games were provided by the Niles West Color Guard. The Color Guard, consisting of about 20 members, not only performed in many home foot¬ ball games, but also marched in the Homecoming Parade. Competitions were also done both at Whitewater Wisconsin and at Marango, Illinois. Long hours and hard work were involved through¬ out their long season.

Besides ushering for performances and meetings, the club held a fund-raiser and planned social events. Ushers could be identified by the new sashes they wore as uni¬ forms. The 1985-86 officers of the Ushers’ Club were President Marina Fialko, Vice-President Doreen Smith, Secretary Sheila Patel, and Treasurer Meena Ravella. The club spon¬ sor was Miss Klinger. Said President Marina Fialko, " The Ushers’ Club was a wonderful way to meet new people while doing a great service to the school. Club member Tania Lee added, " The Ushers’ Club was a special organization to be involved in because the members were so friendly and willing to devote their time to provide a necessary service to the school. " " I’ve joined this club to see my ideas be used by actors. There’s nothing better than to see something that you have invisioned come to life on stage,’’ explained Technical Service Club member Jenny Shedroff. This club, also known as " Crew’’, involved 25 students who were responsible for setting up the microphones, working the lights and sound, and hiring speakers to come to Niles West. These students also built from scratch all the sets for all the shows, including " Celebration, " " A Salute to Walt Disney, " and " Oliver. " The sponsor of this group. Miss Philbin, explained that decisions were made by group consensus rather than by officers.

Although this is the club’s first year, the success and membership was out¬ standing. Performances included the Winter Festival, Bos¬ ton, Pops, Fall Choral Concert and many others. They also sponsored the smash hit " Star Search” which involved many North Shore high school students. The success of " Expressions” goes to the help of choreo¬ grapher Gretchen Glader, and to Ms. Owens, the vocal director who helped a great deal with having such a well rounded swinging choir. " Next year looks like a good one, as long as we stay together,” stated freshman Rachel Posner. Expressions 2-T FORWARD MARCH BAND PLACES AT SECTIONALS A call for " forward march " echoed throughout the football field as the Niles West Marching Band enjoyed one of it’s finest years. For the first time the band competed in marching competitions. In a national tournament at Whitewater, Wisconsin, the marching band placed seventh. At Marengo, Illinois at a sectional competition, the band placed second. Also the percus¬ sion section went on their first competition ever, placing fourth. All of this and they also marched in two parades and every home football game. " Being involved with such a large group of people who are devoted to the same goals teaches a great deal about family, people and most of all, pride, " stated band president senior David Rubin. After the marching band season, they moved indoors to become the sym¬ phonic and concert bands. The transition is difficult from loud, marching music to soft, flowing concert music. Both bands performed at the Holiday Festival, Boston Pops Concert, and played for graduation. The Marching and symphonic bands keep hopeful outlooks that years to come will be as successful as 1986. Warming up her flute for the homecoming parade is sophomore Lisa Mar tinson. A lot of practice and dedication was put into the parade. Jazz Band-Front Row: Megan Knowles, Roddy Loewenthal.

The concert choir worked hard to prepare for their annual Christmas performance. GOOD NOTE What’s the best way to start the year off on a good note? Sing in choir! With the help of spon¬ sor Sherri Owens, the Girls’ Ensemble strove to improve their voices. And it was evident that their dedication and hard work paid off. From the Fall Festival to the May Concert, their voices were heard loud and clear. The choir hopes to attract even more people in the future so the altos and sopranos are more evenly balanced. Junior Michelle Cohen expressed the enthusiasm of the group saying, " Singing is fun and interesting, and we learn a wide variety of songs. Each person is given an equal opport unity to sing by our wonder¬ ful teacher Mrs. Owens. " Front Row: Gwen Singer.

" Included in those perfor¬ mances was the addition of a fall choral _ concert, a dessert concert in the Oakton ■ Street Lobby, and a combined concert with ■ Niles North.

Sponsor Gretchen Glader said, " Putting together a production such as ours is a learning experience from beginning to end.

SOPHOMORES BUSY! Sophomore Class Cabinet, under the advisory of Mrs. Krone, was very busy. All thirty sophomore students in this organization, including Benjie Malkin as president, Marc Fienberg as vice-president, Missy Rabin as trea¬ surer, and Stefani Ivisic as secretary helped in some way to make sure the class of ’88 had a successful year. Their first major activitiy was planning the Frosh Soph mixer in September. Cindy Levine enjoyed that activ¬ ity, remarking that she joined cabinet because ”1 want¬ ed to help plan for dances ' With her efforts and many others, the dance was a total success. The next activity on their agenda was to make a spirit panel for Homecoming. It took a lot of work, but it was worth it since they took 1st place in the spirit panel contest! In November, for a fundraiser, they had the original idea of selling bagged popcorn. The popcorn sold fast and the cabinet benefitted from the profits that were made. ALL NEW GOV’T. Planning for bake sales, the Frosh-Soph Mixer, the vol¬ leyball tournament, and grade level activities are a few of the accomplishments of Freshman Class Cabinet. According to sponsor Ms. Nash, " Freshman Cabinet is a great way for students to get involved from the very beginning of their high school years. " The officers were President Stacy Lutz, Vice-President Fehlyn Tu- len, Secretary Rachel Cohen, and Treasurer Mindy Grossberg. Although this was all new to them, the 30- member club did a great job and had a very successful year.

Senior Class Cabinet involved between 30 to 35 students. Offi¬ cers were: President Mark Poulakidas. Vice-President Lisa Sand- low, Secretary Jordan Cramer, and Treasurer Jon Lisco. Senior Cabinet had planned many activities such as the bake sales, the Homecoming float, a Christmas party, the Battle of the Bands, and the Senior Breakfast, for their class. Club sponsor Sheri Owens said, " I have enjoyed my first year as sponsor for the Senior Class Cabinet. The groups dedication to the school and community provides excellent leadership for the class of ’86 ' Secretary Jordan Cramer stated. ’’The reason I am involved in this activity is to do good things representing our class for the school and community.” President Mark Poulakidas said, ' The purpose of Senior Cabinet is to promote spirit and have fun by planning activities which serve both the school and the community.” JUNIORS PLAN FUND RAISERS Senior George Kotsiopoulos " munched on some bake sale goods. As is tradition, the responsibility for planning Prom was placed in the hands of Junior Class Cabinet. Part of that responsibility entailed fundraising with all profits going to the Prom. Fundraisers included selling taffy apples on two separate occa¬ sions, having a bake sale, the " After Game Madness” dance, showing a feature film in the auditorium and running conces¬ sions at the Battle of the Bands. The twenty-plus members of Junior Class Cabinet and their sponsor, Mrs. Linda Horwitz, worked patiently and diligently through the weeks to organize and develop, " Once In A Life¬ time. Prom 1986. This work included inventing a theme, choos¬ ing a favor, designing the bid, and picking a Prom logo, as well as planning the details of the dance itself. Junior Class Cabinet raised a substantial amount of money to help defeat the costs of the fine Prom they had planned. In the words of Junior Class Cabinet President James Van Osdol.

STUDENT UNION — PLANS ACTIVITIES Homecoming parade and dance, Back to School Bash, Turnabout, pep rallies . . . the list goes on and on. These are just some of the many activities that were planned by the Student Union. What is Student Union? According to junior member James VanOs- dol, " Student Union is the entertainment branch of student government. We’re the smile producers in this school, we plan rip-roarin ' fun activities that the kids just love. It’s a lot of laughs and good times being involved in Union.’’ Throughout the past years, the number of members involved in Student Union has increased greatly. Who ever believed that group of 80 would become 106? Yet all the members worked hard and worked well together and the outcome was simply amazing. The officers included President Jenni Holt, Vice- President Devra Resnick, Secretary Judy Zemsky, and Treasurer Michele Feinberg. The sponsor was Mrs. Forman. Thanks to all the effort, creativity, and enthusiasm put in by the members of Student Union, the 1985-86 school year was fun, exciting, and one that will always be remembered! Junior MicFielle Feinberg works on decorations for Turnabout Dance, ’’Willie Wonka.” Student Union STUDENT SENATE PROVIDES ■ GROUND RULES " Student Senate plays an important role acting on behalf of the students and preserving the rights of students. I think it’s great because one can fin d out what’s really going on and do something about it,” stated junior Mark Gussin, secretary and treasurer of Student Senate. He, along with President Dean Marinakis and Vice-President Mike Phillips, made up the club’s officers. The 30 member club was active and involved with various activities. They attended regional conferences, and sent representatives to sit in on board of education meetings as well as EPAC meetings. In addition, they were the sponsors of " Meet the Board,” and participated in the student appeals board. When asked for his opinion of Student Senate, sponsor Mr. J.A. Sweeney replied, " I feel that I am associated with the most exciting activity in the school. " Members of Student Senate. Evelina Stipicik. Nicki Romashko. Rhonda Bergman. Jeannine DiMadica. and Elke Bojes are here to represent the organization. Student Senate 255 ECC COORDINATES GOVERNMENT Whenever new ideas came up for all-school events, such as fundraisers, E.C.C. provided a forum to hear those ideas. Whenever conflicts of interest arose between student groups, E.C.C. helped settle the debate. If friction occurred between students and the administration, E.C.C. provided the lubricant to keep Niles West a well-oiled machine. Yes, the Executive Coordinating Council played a pivotal role in communications between all the groups at Niles West. Topics for discussion could have been channeled through the representatives of any of the respective administrative and student governmental groups. Once channeled, these topics were thorough¬ ly discussed and consensus decisions made, usually to the satisfaction of all involved. Senior member Judy Zemsky listens up to the next activity to be discussed. Senior Lisa Sandlow, Senior Class Vice President, speaks of her next plan. 256 ECC Senior Howard Tiersky shows Mr. Golata that he can carry Greece on his shoulders.

The computer population at Niles West has almost tripled in the last four years. Nowadays, computers do all our work, from balancing our checkbooks to counting our calories. In general, the average American has a little silicon chip doing all his thinking. " Computers are fine to a point. But when they start to rule the world somebody ought to pull the plug on them and go back to using the abacus as a counting machine, " said Junior Chris Larkin. How¬ ever, without computers where would we be now? Sophomore Ann Fisher explained, " Computers help me a lot with my typing skills and my homework. I sure am glad I bought one.

The class taught by Jean Derichs, was much more that a literature class. Derichs described it as the closest thing to a philosophy class at Niles West. Research reports on the supernatural and cults were written. There were also many in class activities. The students created their own hell, in writing. As a class they discussed the change in attitude about the devil throughout the ages. They also disscussed the origin of evil. They read many books dealing with the devil. " Inferno " by Dante, " Mysterious Stranger " by Twain, " Childhood ' s End " , by Arther Clarke, " Exorcist " by William Blatty, and " Dr. Faustus " by Marlow are some titles of books read. Derichs added another reason the class was so stimulating, " I like it because I get some of the most interesting students in the class. I find that they look at the ordinary in a most t nordinary way. " j Biology teacher James Strnad works after classroom hours to prepare for his classes.

Various students were asked of their favorite spot and these were some an¬ swers. The cafeteria seemed to be the most popular study area of the school. But almost everyone agrees it is one of the hardest places to con¬ centrate. " Food is the main attraction to studying in the cafe. " according to Junior Gina Lee. For band members the band wing and main room is the best spot. Besides being able to practice music, there are other reasons for using the room. Senior Jill Zabo said, " I enjoy the quiet atmosphere, studying by the win¬ dow for fresh air and being with my friends. " A couch and chairs in the band wing also make studying more comfortable. Senior Paula Krone voiced the opinion of many newspaper and yearbook staff mem¬ bers. " I like working in the Westword office because it feels like I’m at home. There is unlimited amounts of paper, pens and of course a phone. " Academics Some of the more unusual spots for studying were, " In the hall between classes " according to Sophomore Bryan Mittleman, " At my desk during the test. " said Senior Jim King, and Junior David Bloom says " I don’t study. " Senior George Marks checks out the days news during his free time.

The District 219 Board of Education consists of a six member team that works out potential problems in the schools. One problem that the board is working on is the change of the gradu¬ ation requirements by raising the num¬ ber of credits necessary to graduate, rather than the traditional thirty- six. Another important issue concerns that of discipline. The Board wants to change punishments for violations, such as suspension. Lastly to dispute on wheter or not to make up the days lost from the strike. Students were able to learn of and discuss these and other important issues with the Board at the ’ ' Meet the Board” session held in Octo¬ ber. Students question The Board of Education at the highly successful, second annual ’Meet the Board.” Members of the Board of Education : Back row.

Always willing to try to make the student feel better, the school ' s nurses are to be commended for doing a fine job. After taking your temperature, whether they send you home, excuse you from gym, or just let you lie down for a little while, you can count on the nurses to take care of you. When leaving the nurses’ office, you may want to clear up your unexcused absence with the dean. Although most people, including the deans, feel that the less one is in the deans’ office the better. Niles West is lucky to have three fine deans and their secretaries doing a professional job of what needs to be done. Another group of people that deserve credit for doing a job that needs to be done is the security guards. When trouble arises, the security guards act quickly and efficiently to return everything back to normal, and to maintain a calm and studious atmo¬ sphere.

But for each and every day.” I find it hard to cope. With the things life has in store It’s hard growing up When you don’t know what your for Our sun is finally setting Our times together are few It’s time to start our lives again Forget the old and look to the new It all seems like a dream Those years of learning life. We must now go out on our own Taking the happiness and taking the strife. Most of will succeed. But some of us will fall So wish me luck in this time- And good times through it all.
