Opening Section Sophomore f.ric Schulman uses his free time to read an aiiommous note he re Academic fare goes beyond classroom for the average student, academics form the major part of the day at school. Considering that academic courses, with few exceptions, are the only classes which are required, this is quite reasonable. Accord¬ ing to junior Aaron Joffe, " Really, little else exists that ' s worth my consideration other than the core classes. Anyhow, the school was established to pro¬ vide general liberal arts and sciences education. " Within this realm, though, there are many options, numerous levels of difficulty exist within each respec¬ tive subject, and four different languages are offered. " For example, " said Junior Tom Mazarakis, " If I wanted to, I could easily take A.P. chemistry and basic French, if I were extremely proficient in chemis¬ try and poor in French. " In addition to the usual academic fare, students may augment their learning in certain clubs. Clubs such as Debate, Seminars for Scholars, and Current Events are fine examples of activities which add to class experience. Tutors ' Club may also be put in this category since it helps the struggling student and refines the successful student ' s skills. The resources of the school also provide opportunities for a wider range of experiences, as well as general help with academic studies. The respective resource centers, computer rooms, li¬ brary, and library annex, all offer opportunities for learning to the interested student. Of course, the teachers should not be left out of this web of education. Their efforts are an integral part of the students ' learn¬ ing. It is then, the teachers, the scholarly clubs, and the numerous resources of the school which together form the overall academic experience of the high school student.

A popular place to go is Ed Debevic ' s, a fifties-type restaurant where a lot of people go to eat or just hang out. Down the street is the Hard Rock Cafe. Hard Rock is a restaurant that not only has good food, but also rock and roll memorabilia. It is a good place to go to eat or just so they can say they ' ve been there. Ball games: whether the Chicago Bears, Cubs, White Sox, or Bulls, there is usually a game someplace. Friends go together, sit in the bleachers, and cheer their team on. This was also one of the biggest years for concerts. Genesis, Van Halen, David Lee Roth, and even the Monkees all had sold out shows. Students showed them off the following Monday by wearing the T-shirt that they bought. Finally, there were the basic movies and parties. People flocked to the theaters with their dates, to see such flicks as " Reform School Girls " , and " Eat and Run. " Then they would go to their prospective parties.

" The Pied Piper ' ' was presented before 1500 students. Schools sent letters of thanks, with many students drawing pictures of what the Pied Piper meant to them. " It was amazing how their minds remembered exact lines actors said. I was impressed by the children who remembered how the set looked and then remarked on the costumes.

Children s Theater 37 38 " Stop The World " gets go ahead S top the World — 1 Want To Get Off! " was the annual student- produced musical. At the close of the 1985-86 school year, the direc¬ tors chose to recreate this musical- comedy with several new ideas to give the production a fresh, modern look. In previous years, students wrote the productions as well as directed them, but in recent years, many of the writers were plagued with a lack of story ideas. As a result, beginning with the 1985 production, " Celebra¬ tion " , the decision was made to per¬ form pre written shows. Usually, the student-produced musical was the first production of the year; this year it is the second. " Stop the World " is the story of Litt- lechap, played by senior Bruce Ram- seyer, a clown in the circus who goes through his entire life making the same mistakes, never being satisfied. During his lifetime, he meets four women, one of whom he marries and cheats on with the other three. His Student Produced Musical wife is Evie, played by sophomore Amy Flack. By Evie, he has two daugh¬ ters, Susan and Jane, played by soph¬ omores Laila Stein and Katy Born. The other three women he meets are a Russian, Anya, played by senior Alyssa Tadelman; a German, Use, played by junior Allison Brooks; and an American, Ginnie, played by junior Lisa Lasowski. Senior director Rebecca Kolber stated, " Stop the World ' is a strange and wonderous musical. I hope the audience had as much fun watching it as I had directing it! " Sponsor and technical advisor Cynthia Philbin commented " Being the first musical of the school year. Stop the World ' has brought together many freshmen, and different large organizations in the school. " It ' s one of my favorite shows! " Cast member Katy Born said, " I ' ll never forget this show. The music was wonderful and it ' s.all so energet¬ ic, I can ' t imagine anyone not liking it! " Steering commitee members con¬ sisted of senior Rebecca Kolber, di¬ rector; senior Andrea Field, choreo¬ grapher; senior Cheryl Lanski, techni¬ cal director; junior Joy Grossberg, vo¬ cal director; and junior Arthur Tiersky, assistant to the director. Sen¬ iors Larry Van Mersbergen and Mark Schaffer conducted the orchestra, senior Tony Blumberg handled the publicity, and senior David Allen was the assistant vocal director. Junior Ann Fisher designed the costumes; junior Ami Schwartz was assistant to the technical director, and sopho¬ more Beth Lichtenstein was the chor¬ eographer ' s assistant. To help actors with the mime for the show, the direc¬ tors asked professional mime T. Dan¬ iels to come in and help. " Stop the World — I Want to Get Off!

Field learning F ield trips have been a part of our educational pro¬ cess for as long as we can remember. Some field trips are considered " Blow-offs ' ' to students, but other field trips provide an educational experience that can not be found in a classroom. This years economics class taught by Charles Anderson took a very interesting trip to see where fortunes are won, lost, counted, and shredded daily. They visited The Chica¬ go Board of Trade and The Federal Reserve Bank. " Just sitting in a classroom and memorizing facts is not enough ' said Senior David Nakabayashi, " visiting the places we study about in class is very mentally enriching. ' ' The economics class ' s day in the city started at the Board of Trade where they witnessed the opening of trading at 9:30 a.m. From the Board of Trade they crossed the street and took a fascinating tour of the Federal Reserve Bank. Millions of dollars in checks and cash are processed at the bank each day. " The bank was very interesting. 1 have never seen so much money in my life, " said Senior nick Tziavaras. " This is one of my favorite field trips because it gives the students an insight to our greedy capitalistic economy. 1 think they learned a lot, " stated teacher Charles Anderson. David Wallerstein Economics teacher Charles Anderson picks up the receiver to hear all about the day ' s trading activities. After watching the opening of trading, the economics class viewed a movie explaining the complex process involved in trading options. Mr. Anderson ' s economics class poses for a picture outside of the Federal Reserve Bank. Senior economists included Michelle Frankel, Steve Dalgetty, and Carlos Talbot.

Buzzzz . . . Get Out! A lthough they present an unfortunate disruption to most classes in session, fire drills are nontheless an important part of the educational process. If a fire were to suddenly besiege Niles West most students would be likely to panic and endanger themselves. Fire drills provide the necessary means of the students ' fire- education. A student may miss class time due to fire drills, but in the event of fire, at least he or she will be safe with the knowledge acquired through fire drills. Some students, however, view fire drills with a bit of levity. Said senior Depak Sathy, " I hate having fire drills during free time or lunch, but they ' re okay during classes, like calculus ' Mark Gussin During a fire drill, students neatly file out of the building into the cool morning mist. To many students the fire alarm is quite a shock first thing in the morning. fire Drills 43 King honored M r. Lacy J.

The dance titled " Second Chance Valentines Day Dance” gave students who were not able to be with that special someone on the famous holiday another chance. Starting a couple weeks before the dance (Oct. 21) Cupid started shooting his magic arrows. The result was many lucky guys walking around school with happy grins on their faces because the girls of their dreams had just asked them to accompany them to Turnabout. Whether the couples were long-time boyfriends and girlfriends or just good friends, it was agreed that all had a good time. According to senior Devra Resnick, " It was like Valentines Day all over again.” The D.J. played a variety of music to get the dance going. There were rock tunes for those who wanted to boogie a nd slow songs for those who were in a romantic mood. As usual the dance turned out to be a huge success.

T he annual cherry pie contest, which was held in the cafeteria, gave Foods 1, Foods 2, and Chefs course students the opportunity to show off their baking talents. Two students were represented from each class, making a total of eight contestants in the contest. Half of their school day was spent in the kitchen creating their delecta¬ ble cherry masterpieces. The other half spent in the cafe¬ teria watching the others eat their works of art. Senior Rachel Smith commented, " It was a tasty diversion from the normal, everyday classes. " Five judges were chosen to be the pie tasters. They consisted of business education teacher Mrs. Wise, board of education president Mr. Wiener, board of education member Mr. Tiersky, superintendent Dr. Olsen, and princi¬ pal Dr. Ring. The pies were judged before and after they were eaten on appearance and flavor, keeping such things as color, texture, and tenderness in mind.

Portraying the parables T his years final musical produc¬ tion was originally to be " Car¬ ousel. " After careful delibera¬ tion by sponsors Robert Johnson, Cynthia Philbin and Sheri Owens, the musical was changed to " Godspell, " a rock musical based on the times of Jesus Christ, who was portrayed by junior John Barba. There were many special changes incorporated into this production. Mr. Johnson decided this version of the show had to be modernized in order to help the audience understand the underlying morals to the parables, which are the lessons taught to Je¬ sus ' followers throughout the course of the show. For instance, the parable of " The Judge and the Widow, ' ' was re-written with dialouge created by both the director and cast. The par¬ able had the same basic theme, but at the same time parodied TV ' s " The People ' s Court. ' ' Other changes included the fact that there were no traditional " lead ' ' roles, with the exception of Christ and the character of Judas, played by ju¬ nior Matthew Winer. During the first week of rehearsal, Johnson pointed out to the cast members that it was they who were to decide how much of themselves they wanted to put into the show, for there would not be any specific character names used. As an example, " Judy " would play " Judy " in the show. Everyone got their chance to be seen or heard from at least once. The cast was completely ensemble, no separation between " leads " and the " chorus. " Everyone was the same designation. The cast was made up of eighteen people in total, including seniors Rebecca Kolber and Adam Zimmerman, ju¬ niors Alison Brooks, Michelle Dayan, Joy Grossberg and Paul Katz, sopho¬ mores Maggie Duffy, Amy Flack, Kir¬ sten Gieler, Carl Helwing, Melinda Flepner, Beth Lichtenstein, Kevin Steele and Pascale Trouillot, along with freshmen Adam Telengater and David Winer. The lighting was designed profes¬ sionally by Mr. Marc Schwartz. The set was designed by Cynthia Philbin, Lee Goldberg and Peter Sharpe. Johnson concluded, " By far, this is the best production of " Godspell " that I have ever had the pleasure of directing. I would drudge through my day as an English teacher until I got to those rehearsals. " " Godspell " was per¬ formed four times: a senior citizens performance on March 11, a junior- high performance on March 12, and two night performances on March 13 and 14.

NiWeHi of¬ fered many opportunities for peo¬ ple to express their interests and talents. They varied from chess club, to band, to the many foreign language clubs, of which the newest addition was the Chinese club. The clubs also did a lot for our community. " The Israeli club gave the money they raised to dif¬ ferent charities ' said President Da¬ vid Wallerstein. " Clubs allow a student to tempo¬ rarily forget the rigors of academia, and that can really help a person get through a school day, " said Senior Class President Dale Sher¬ man. Clubs can play an important part in a person ' s education. Students come across new experiences all the time. Students learn to work to¬ gether and get a chance to leam about themselves and others. 68 Clubs-Division CLUBS A member of Midnight Riders, senior Renee Le- Comte helps make posters to boost the spirit of the football players for their upcoming game.

Events consisted of a fall choral concert in the cafeteria, A Holiday Festival in December, and a performance at the Museum of Science and Industry for " Christmas Around the World ' Other activities were a Boston Pops Dinner Concert and a May Festival to close the school year. Sponsor Sheri Owens stated, " The choral program has really grown this year. The students in all three groups are performing better than ever! " Senior Rebecca Kolber said, " Expressions com¬ bines the benefits of learning music in class along with the ability to perform at events.

It is a group of twenty-five girls who practice all year for a show that is given the first weekend in April. The show consists of all different forms of dance. Jazz, modern, ballet, and tap are all incorporated into the choreogra¬ phy. For the most part, the participants in the club choreograph the numbers in the show. Gretchen Glader, the sponsor of Orchesis, helps with some of the choreography. Junior Stephanie Pritzker stated, " I think it is great that we choreograph our own numbers. It makes me feel like the show really belongs to us ' The April show is not the only performance given by Orchesis. Orchesis also takes part in junior high performances and performances for the elderly at various nursing homes. " Entertaining other people is what 1 think is best about Orchesis. We all feel really proud and good about ourselves after we do a show at a home for the elderly. It is reward enough just to see them smile, " said senior Un Joo Choi. Instead of the band tour, which Orchesis usually participates in, they went on a dance tour of their own. This and other ideas are helping to make Orchesis more fun and profitable.

One of the club s activities was sponsoring a cover contest in which the winner won fifty dollars. West of Edens Described as " a festival of literary art prowess ' by senior Craig Keer, West of Edens published another outstanding edition this year. West of Edens, Niles West s annual color literary art magazine, is composed entirely of submissions from West students, ranging from drawings to poetry to science fiction writings. This year s cover was the result of a school-wide contest where the winner was awarded a $50 prize. Commenting on this year s edition, sophomore Christine Kim noted, " We had a plethora of excellent works submitted this year. This edition truly runs the gamut of ideas, creativity, and talents ' Current Events The Current Events Club is unique in that it is the only completely unres¬ tricted club which presents a wide range of contemporary, often contro¬ versial themes to the student. The na¬ ture and purpose of the club was ex¬ plained by its sponsor, Mr. Tom McMahon, who stated, " The main purpose of the current events club is to interest students in the political, social and moral issues of our time. " Approximately twenty students comprised the club s membership. Due to the solely didactic format of the club no officers as such were elected. At the outset, Mr. McMahon stated, " One of the primary goals of this club is to educate students regarding con¬ troversial issues not discussed in the classroom. In keeping with this state¬ ment the club explored the following topics: the racial situation in South Africa; civil rights in Latin America; the nuclear arms race; and two here¬ tofore untouched subjects, sanctuary- immigration in America and the con¬ flict in Northern Ireland. Members of the club expressed their feelings regarding their involve¬ ment. Kyung Chang commented, " I feel I have profited greatly from the rare opportunity this club gives me to leam and think about those philos¬ ophies and people around the globe who truly affect the world. " Hong Park stated, " I really enjoy getting the unique perspective on international affairs which only the current events club can give me. " Sponsor McMahon capsulized his beliefs about the club, " We are basi¬ cally there to give the interested stu¬ dent a better understanding of world affairs, and perhaps spark them to take action in some political realm. " Current Events is then a club with a serious purpose to educate and inter¬ est students about the political world surrounding them. James VanOsdol Tom Dallianis West Of Edens Current Events Club 79 Showtime The school year showed increasing interest by a wide range of students in the Niles West Theatre Department. The majority of new¬ comers to the department were the fresh¬ man, who showed some positive signs for the future. There were four shows produced during the school year. The first was " The Pied Piper of Hamelin. " Directed by Cynthia Philbin, the Children s Theatre production told the famil¬ iar tale of a man helping townspeople rid their community of a host of rats. Featured were junior Matthew Winer as the Pied Piper, junior Arthur Tiersky as the greedy mayor, and seniors Abby Ivener and Chris Larkin as young lovers. The student-directed musical followed. " Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!, " directed by senior Rebecca Kolber, told the story of Littlechap, a clown in the circus, who never realizes his mistakes until all he loves leave him through death. Senior Bruce Ramseyer played the unsatisfied Littlechap and sopho¬ more Amy Flack was his wife, Evie. The musical, directed annually by sponsor Robert Johnson, was originally chosen to be " Carousel, " but the director changed his mind and " Godspell " became his new choice. Mr. Johnson has directed the show twice before but stated, " By far this is the best cast I ' ve ever chosen for this production. I would drudge through my school day as an English teacher just to get to the rehearsals for " Godspell. " " Godspell " tells the story of the teachings of Jesus Christ, played by ju¬ nior John Barba. 80 The Children Theater production, " The Pied Piper of Hamelin, " freshman David Winer performs for the first time in front of an audience.

With riot only adding color and ex¬ citement to our halftime games, but also in parades, the color guard competes in many tournaments. The color guard has joined with north becom¬ ing Panache. The color guard, through their visual synchronated patterns, enhanced the music played during marching competitions. These girls believe practice makes perfect. flying colors With twelve national and local competi¬ tions, the new competition color guard, " Pa¬ nache ' had a busy year. Formed from the regular color guards of Niles West and North, Panache is somewhat of a mix between the traditional color guard outfit, with rifles and flags, and a dance troupe. As band director William Koch put it, " It ' s the best of both worlds! " Panache founder Koch has taught drill de¬ sign and spoken on the benefits of competi¬ tion color guard at such places as Northeas¬ tern and Roosevelt Universities. Mis field of expertise is ostensibly in the different areas of marching band, of which the color guard is included. Commented Koch, " Marching band has just been emerging as a dominant force in the last five years, and universities are even giving scholarships to those who join their marching-band programs. Because of the knowledge and experience acquired here at Niles West, many students have been able to join college marching bands and enjoy the travel benefits of those bands right away. " Panache, under the instruction of Debbie Wiles, provided a unique opportunity to Niles West studen ts. Very few high schools in the nation have competition color guards, and color guard classes comparable to those of¬ fered at Niles West aren ' t normally available at universities. In this, its first year. Panache also had to overcome the inadequate amount of money it was budgeted, through extensive fundraising. As Band director Koch recognized, however, it was well worth it. When asked why more schools don ' t have competition color guards, Koch responded, " Competition color guard is an integral part of my program; most direc¬ tors aren ' t aware of the benefits it offers to the students or to the over-all band program.

Color Guard 81 MHS: Crusading for charity The national Honor Society differs from other clubs in that it is a philanthropically oriented club which restricts its membership to students who are leaders in both the academic and extra curricular life of the school. The civic- minded nature of the club is emphasized by its sponsor, Mrs. Linda Horowitz, who stated, " The purpose of this club is to provide an arena in which students can do good deeds and help needy organizations and causes. " Forty-five students comprised the club ' s membership. Of these 45, Sam Volchenboum was elected president; Tania Lee acted as vice-president; Rachel Oliker was the club ' s secretary; and Matthew Klapman served as treasur¬ er. At the outset, Mrs. Horwitz stated, " We intend to partici¬ pate in more activities than ever before. " This goal was realized by the club ' s involvement in numerous activities, including: an interscholastic volleyball tournament, a snackbar sale, a visit to hospitalized children on Hallow¬ een, a canned food drive, a food drive, a visit to the elder¬ ly, sponsorsip of spelling bees for local junior high schools, and the collection of donations for the Crusade of Mercy. Members of the club expressed their feelings regarding their involvement in HHS. Senior Bryan Wada commented, " The activities we do in HHS are pursued vigorously. Whether their results are immediate or more subtle, just knowing that everything we do will do some good makes a person feel satisfied. " Leah Seef stated, " HHS gives me a chance to help people in the community who are less fortunate than myself. " Sponsor Horowitz summed up her feelings about the club by observing, " Working with HHS is an extremely rewarding experience. These talented young people have given freely of their time and energy to help others. " This is the core of the national Honor Society, gifted students contributing their time and abilities for worthy causes. Tom Dallianis Casa Central Devoted to helping others, the Spanish Honor Society spent much time organizing an eventful, and a most memorable year. They joined the Spanish Club on their trip to Casa Central, participated in International night and had various dinners at fine Spanish Restaurants. Sponsor Mrs. Lopez commented, " I feel proud to be the sponsor of the Spanish Honor Society. These students are the most outstanding ones in our department because they are truly dedicated to studying Spanish and to becoming ac¬ quainted with the Spanish culture. " Senior member De- pak Sathy concluded, " Hot only does the Spanish Honor Society give me a chance to help people who need it, but it also enhances my knowledge of the Spanish culture and their way of life.

Sponsor Angela Graham stated, " Both established Korean - Americans who wish to Know more about Korean culture and language, and recently arrived Korean immi¬ grants who can share their back¬ grounds and leam to adapt to Ameri¬ can ways comprise the Korean Club membership. " President Steve Kim and Vice-Presi¬ dent Ester Bae led the group through various activities. The Korean Associ¬ ation Volleyball Tournament proved to be a fun and charitable event. An¬ other event involved entertaining Ko¬ rean senior citizens, with the enter¬ tainment provided by club members. Other unique events included car washes, Tae Kwon Do classes, and the club ' s participation in Internation¬ al night. Senior member Brian Yoo explained the purpose of the club when he stated.

' ' Hong Park agreed by saying, " This club has enriched my mind and has given me more knowledge of my Korean cul¬ ture. " Jordan Meyerovitz Chinese Club follows suit From authentic Chinese cooking to spirited Chinese songs, the newborn Chinese Club was actively involved in numerous events in its first year. Sponsor Carol Simone and 26 mem¬ bers participated in fund raisers, prac¬ ticed martial arts, " adopted " an Afri¬ can child, and learned about the art of Chinese painting techniques. Club member Daniel Lee stated, " The Chi¬ nese Club is a place of enjoyment and entertainment that also gives a sense of commitment and accomplish¬ ment. " Simone added, " The mem¬ bers of this club thoroughly enjoy be¬ ing together, planning activities, prac¬ ticing their songs and dances, and seeing each others accomplishments. This is a terrific club! " In addition to promoting friend¬ ships and spreading awareness of the Chinese culture to Asian-Americans, the Chinese Club also provided aid to newly-arrived Chinese students. Through its accomplishments the Chinese Club fulfilled its promise to be active during its first year of growth. Front row: Hyung II Bae, JaeWoo Jeong, Leo Rhee, Hannah Yoo, Connie Choi.

The sponsors were Olga Georgiev and Trudy O Reilly. O ' Reilly states, " It is the students ' club and we give them as much support as we can. " Many exciting trips and activities were planned. For ex¬ ample, they visited the Children of Casa Central in order to give them a Valentine party, they held a dinner at a Spanish restaurant, and some juniors and seniors attend¬ ed the Spanish immersion weekend in Wisconsin. Fun¬ draisers were also held in order to raise money for San Salvador and the Mexican relief. The club was led by President Michele Weinberg and vice-president Rachel Oliker.

Early enthusiasm Although freshmen were just starting their high school careers, they were not about to let a moment of it go to waste. In the fall. Freshman Cabinet participated in the sale of Homecoming buttons and built a float for the Homecoming parade. Led by President Brian Marcus and Vice-President Layla Arsan, they also planned many other activities, including a Chocolate Lovers ' Bake Sale and a re¬ creational event with Miles Morth. To its advantage, the Cabinet had an unusually large membership and they were ready to take part in anything. The class of 1990 was sponsored by Miss Zucker, who claimed, " This is the most enthusi¬ astic, creative group of freshmen that I have worked with. ' ' In addition to leading the freshman class activities. Cabinet mem¬ bers had fun and met a lot of new people. Cabinet member Yvonne Barazi explained, " It ' s a great way to meet students from other schools, especially when you ' re a freshman and you don ' t know a lot of people. " If the class of 1990 is this enthusiastic as freshmen, just wait until they are seniors! Ivy Kron Examining shoes has always been a highly regarded, serious discus¬ sion in Freshman Cabinet, as these students demonstrate. The orga¬ nization accomplished quite a lot in the shoe exchange topic. 88 Freshman Cabinet An awesome year Even with their busy schedules, sophomores Hilary Kaden and Elyse Decker still find time to smile for the camera. Sophomore cabinet members develop lifelong friendships with oth¬ er members. Sophomore Cabinet has had a busy schedule experimenting with new ideas, and getting to know their new sponsor, chief of security Jim Puff. Mr. Puff said of his new role at West, " I am new as a sponsor and have found a real great group of people to work with in Sophomore Cabinet. ' ' A few of the activities and fundraisers Cabinet sponsored were the Prosh- Soph Mixer, a lip-sync contest, and a bake sale. President Megan Goldish commented on the year ' s activities, " We attempted a lot of activities. Some didn ' t work as participation wasn ' t very high. The ones that did work, however, went well and everyone had fun! " The Cabinet ' s 45 members are already looking toward their junior year, and hope the many activities carried out will help with the expensive cost of organizing prom. Megan Goldish, along with the rest of the executive board. Vice President Christine Kim, Secretary Ivy Kron, and Treasurer Mindy Gross- berg, are expecting the class of 89 ' s school spirit to increase with graduation only two years away. Mindy Grossberg concluded, " Sophomore Cabinet has expanded in ideas, size and school spirit. This year has been awesome!

Since a pro¬ ject like this is so expensive, many fundraisers were held throughout the year, including a jumbo cookie sale and numerous Tootsie Pop sales. Also, Junior Cabinet sponsored the ever-popular Battle of the Bands. Amy Chertow commented, " We all worked really hard together to get the job done, and it sure showed.

Senior cabinet sets pace The members of Senior Cabinet had worked to¬ gether for three or four years, and by senior year, knew how to put together an activity and make it work. As Vice-President, James Van Osdoi stated, " We had a rip roarin ' fun time this year. Our events were successful and the kids were just great. " Toward the beginning of the year, they sponsored a volleyball tournament, in which only seniors partici¬ pated. The tournout was great and everyone had fun. Around Christmas time, they chose to make a visit to Hull House, an orphanage. They presented the children with gifts, played games, and even had a Santa Claus ' to hear their wishes. Both the kids and members enjoyed it. Senior Elaine Barrington felt, " It was an experience I ' ll never forget. Everyone had a great time. " Along with many taffy apples and bake sales, the cabinet planned a Battle of the Bands, in which stu¬ dents involved in a band of their own got their band to play in front of the school and gave a " mock " concert to earn more money to achieve their two goals: to be able to pay for a huge senior issue of the school newspaper and to buy a senior gift like no other class had presented to the school before. Senior Cabinet came up with new and exciting ideas at every productive meeting. The year was filled with novel ideas that were appreciated by all classes. Julie Hartman Senior Dita Jusufi is taking money from senior David Zazra for a taffy apple. Senior cabinet sold them to sponsor a Holiday party at the Mull house. Senior Cabinet 91 Unity provides success The name says it all. Student Un¬ ion ' s main ingredient is unity. Stu¬ dents from all four class levels work together to plan activities for the whole school to participate. Student Union s largest task was planning Homecoming. " The Wonder¬ ful World of Disney ' ' was the theme of the week. For the First time, the class cabinets helped out with the planning of the activities. Union, though, made most of the general decisions and came up with the ideas. The whole week was very successful. " From pep rallies to the dance, everything turned out great. " commented Union officer Elaine Barri ngton. Another first in Union history was a male president. For the first time ever a guy led the Union. President Andy Sprogis liked the idea of being the first male president. " I think even more guys should be involved in the planning of school activities, " said Sprogis.

Improving conditions Student government ' s legislative group, the Student Senate, found its year filled with all of its usual respon¬ sibilities, as well as at least one very important new one-evaluation of the Closed Hallway System, from the stu¬ dents point of view. Speaking about the traditional role of Senate, President Mike Phillips stat¬ ed that, " Student Senate aims to im¬ prove conditions for the students, not byplanning dances and events which we think will be " fun ' but by address¬ ing issues of policy and petitioning for changes when the policy seems to be unjust or unfair ' Senate ' s method for improving conditions comes in the form of a " motion ' - a formal request for change that is written by a Senate member, is discussed, amended if necessary, and voted upon by the Senate, and, if approved, sent to the Administration for action. Other responsibilities of the Senate included the running of freshman elections, development of the " meet the Board ' and the evaluation of the Closed Hallway System. In the words of Vice-President Mark Qussin, " The greatest thing about Student Senate is that it gives the stu¬ dents a chance to take part in the de¬ velopment and revision of the policies that affect them most. ' ' And that it does. Seniors Craig Keer and James VanOsdol are selling taffy apples in order to support their club. As you can see, Keer is already enjoying their sales.

Students must be willing to spend much time beyond the forty minute class period to pro¬ duce a quality book ' stated sponsor Jerome Orr. The theme of the 1987 yearbook, A Question of Balance, truly characterized the staff. Editors and reporters worked to¬ gether to create a memorable publication. Hours spent agonizing over pictures and copy turned into pages that came alive with details of the year. Without the dedication of the entire staff. Spectrum never could have been com¬ pleted. Finally, in Mid-March, when every cropper was broken, every wax pencil lost, every picture torn, and ev¬ ery sticker, layout paper and copy sheet used, everyone breathed a sigh of relief. t Front Row: Estelle Mikolakakis, Patty Tzortzis, Dale Sherman, Elaine Barrington, Melaine Miller, Amy Cozza, Jill liedrich, Leah Seef.

Cooperation aided in the club ' s success. To sum it up . . Over the years, the Math Team has expanded its num¬ ber of participants and its involvement in competitions. The club ' s membership comprised 50-75 members which included a healthy mix of freshmen, sophomores, and upperclassmen. " I believe that problem solving is one of the most important aspects of modem mathematics, therefore it is extremely rewarding for me to be able to be involved in an activity which has at its core teaching our students this important skill, " observed one of the team ' s sponsors. " Unlike many other clubs in which one does nothing or relatively little, the Math Team gives me an opportunity to expand my horizons by learning some math and having a good time, " stated Junior member Alex Tzortzis. Junior Fernando Fen commented, " The Math Team is really a unique club. It serves as a supplement to my math classes and provides a competitive, yet enjoyable atmosphere for learning math which 1 have found nowhere else.

That ' s some competition! How do Miles West students Find an outlet for their aca¬ demic talent? Joining the Academic Competition Club, otherwise known as the Academic Bowl Team, is one way. Sponsored by Carl Qeis and Faith Shapiro, the Academic Competition Club includes students who excel in aca¬ demic subjects. " You really see quality students in this club, " stated Mr. Qeis. The club ' s plans included an 1HSA sponsored competition, and next year a national champi¬ on will be chosen. This shows how much the Academic Competition Club has progressed throughout the years. Presently, the club consists of twelve members, but with recognition, the club hopes that more quality students will consider this to be a favorable pasttime. As one member of this academic club, senior Fred Pyter stated, " It ' s a strange amalgam of Trivial Pursuit, Jeopardy, and every AP exam known to man. It ' s really a challenge!

Senior Michele feinberg and junior Jin jer Brody realize that clubs are a great way to meet people and become involved. Public awareness of drunk driving has increased, thanks to participation and pubicity of S.A.D.D., Students Against Driving Drunk. Sponsor Jim Puff commented, " I was im¬ pressed with the number of students this year who signed up for S.A.D.D, and showed an interest in wanting to tell others about the dangers of drunk driving. " S.A.D.D. con¬ sisted of 180 members, including the five officers: Co- Presidents Diane Smason and Michele Feinberg; Vice- President Jinjer Brody; Secretary Chris Samuel; and Trea¬ surer Danielle Chams. This dedicated group sponsored a variety of activities. Movies about Driving Under the Influence were shown in the cafeteria, and a " totaled " car rested on the front lawn during prom to remind everyone not to drink and drive. A S.A.D.D. meeting was filmed by Group W Cable to inform those outside Miles West of the dangers of driving drunk. The main goal of the Miles West S.A.D.D. Chapter was to make students more aware of DUI, and the effect it has on today ' s youth. Christine Kim stated, " S.A.D.D. is a great way to leam, and to tell others about the dangers of DUI. " As sophomores Megan Goldish and Mindy Grossberg plainly put it, " S.A.D.D. can save your life! " Christine Kim Junior Bryan Mittelman states his opinions on drunk driving to fellow SADD members. Individual opinions and ideas are openly discussed at meetings. SADD 99 100 Leading the way Helping other students improve their fitness and physical skills was only one goal of the Leaders P.E. pro¬ gram. Leaders was a group of 151 members who had the opportunity to test individual leadership and teach their peers. One member, Dora Con¬ nell stated, " Leaders is really a lot of fun. You leam how to be responsible for other gym classes as well as help out the P.E. teachers conduct class. " The sponsors of the Leaders pro¬ gram were Mr. Bill Schnurr and Ms. Lee Heeren, who agreed that Leaders was beneficial to both students and teachers. " The most rewarding part of our job is to see students working to¬ gether for self-improvement and to see students giving up their own time to help someone else, " Coach Schnurr explained. Sophomore Carl Helwing agreed, saying, " Leaders is such an experience. It s fun, challeng¬ ing and encouraging.

Students who are failing or having problems in a certain subject often seek the Tutors Club for help. Governed by the five-member board, the club said that their main activity was tutoring students who needed help in any subject. Sponsor Terese Klinger, Spanish teacher, stated, ' The student tu¬ tors give generously of their time, even staying after school . their service and contribution to their fellow students is commendable.

Members of Debate are encouraged to state and support their point of view on discussed topics. Proving their point The Debate Club is unique from other clubs owing to the fact that it allows the interested student an op¬ portunity to develop his or her foren¬ sic skills by providing a forum for de¬ bate. The club ' s purpose is described by its sponsor, Mr. James Clark Batts, who stated, " The club exists to facili¬ tate students in their speaking and in¬ tellectual skills while also providing a social outlet. ' ' Twenty students comprised the club ' s membership. Of these 20, Jeanie Ahn was president and Greg Rosow was vice-president. As debate is allotted a budget, it is capable of having very few officers. The club had as its intention the goal of being more active. This goal was realized by the club ' s attendance at a great number of tournaments this year. Members of the club expressed their views regarding the club. Presi¬ dent Ahn commented, " Prom my years in debate I have been taught the meaning of commitment and person¬ al sacrifice while reaping great divi¬ dends. " Member Kyung Chang stat¬ ed, " Debate is an activity which re¬ quires both time and commitment, but it has tremendous rewards. " Sponsor Batts capsulized the club ' s essence when he stated, " Debate is an undeniably worthwhile activity which encourages clear analytical thinking and communication skills, nothing can help a student more. " Debate then is a truly purposeful club with a meaningful goal, improving the thinking and forensic abilities of inter¬ ested students.

This was the second year that Peer Counseling had been sponsored. So¬ cial worker David Lee responded, " I ' m happy that this program has been successful. 1 hope it will continue for many years to come. I feel it can be beneficial to any student who is dedicated to the program. " The participating students met once a week after school for an hour. At these meetings, stu¬ dents learned about problem solving, decision making, and group activities and experiences. In addition, the students were prepared to lead their own peer group. In September, home¬ rooms were divided and leaders were assigned to recruit from a specific homeroom. The re¬ sponse was encouraging. The peer group, led by two leaders, met once a week for about 10-12 weeks of each semester. Peer Counseling expanded by the addition of a group of trainee student leaders for next year. They also met once a week after school for an hour. Senior Adam Mizock commented, " It was a once-in-a-lifetime chance for me to become in¬ volved. I am glad the program was started. I met many new people in the group. Also, I learned a lot about people, and more importantly, I learned about myself. " Senior Andrew Rudin concluded, " I am sorry to be leaving Peer Counseling. However, I am confident that next year s leaders will carry on the program just as well as we did. " Junior Dora Connell and senior Abby Ivener meet to discuss and plan future activities for their groups. Both leaders dedicated an hour per week after school for this purpose.

Athletes keep balance Running the gamut from football to baseball, tennis to track, riiles West athletics are an integral part of everyday school life. Athletes balance their " careers ' ' rather well. Having to practice up to thirty hours a week and complete daily homework to a similar extent, it doesn ' t come easy, but West ath¬ letes manage. Those involved in sports develop a balance of mental and physical strength. Competing in inter¬ school athletics teaches one to al¬ ways stay on top of given situa¬ tions- to outsmart the competition. Senior Daniel Kaplan, varsity football player, said, " Although the equilibrium of academics and ath¬ letics is not always the easiest to maintain, we get by rather well, as evidenced by strong scoring by all our teams. ' ' Senior Craig Keer, varsity soccer captain, remarked, " Niles West sports are happening. Strong per¬ formance results in strong, positive feelings.

The make-up of the team will be different from past years. I ' ve never had this many young players that will start in key positions. Teamwork ' will be the slogan this year. " The freshman team tried to repeat the success of last year s team. The players sacrificed a lot of time in the season to put together a productive year. Coach Klebba said, " We hope to develop players for Varsity play and give the players the exper¬ ience of competition.

Needless to say, expectations for the regular season were high. Captain Greg Czemik a sen¬ ior, was excited about the team and said, " Ev¬ eryone has been looking forward to this season and our positive attitudes accelerated us. The team had four returning starters and six lettermen whose experience aided them throughout the season. Senior co-captain Andy Sprogis believed that the team s experience helped. We ve learned a lot in the past four years and have become a closely knit team, he declared. Coach Tom Meyer also believed that the team s experience, size, and speed was im¬ portant to the team s success.

" Working with this group of girls was very enjoyable. Their great attitude made my job easy ' commented Coach Hansen of the freshmen team. Expressing similar sentiments, J.V Coach Klebba stated, " This group had great spirit and they seem to have enjoyed both the practices and games, even the losses ' Though both teams faced a rather tough schedule and many disappointments, a number of the girls, including, sophomores Gail Hortelano, Hilary Kaden, Kelli Lockner, Kristi Lall, Stacey Lasker, and freshmen Julie Berg and Doreen Kestler, demonstrate great promise. As Klebba verified, " Girls ' Basketball, as a specta¬ tor sport, is one of the best-kept secrets of high school sports.

They finished the season with a winning record of 11 wins and five losses, the best record in the last four years. Outstanding runners were sopho¬ more Marty Bach, junior Steve Rosen, and senior Mark Kim. The sophomore team, led by Bach, also finished with a winning record of nine wins and six losses. All-conference Marty Bach ran on both varsity and sophomore levels. Regrettably, the freshman season was more disappoint¬ ing, as they ended the season with three wins and eight losses. With a small team compared to some other area schools, the boys made their mark at many dual meets and invitationals. Varsity Coach Savage commented, " This year we set the nucleus for a real good team next year. ' ' Coach Savage also added, " Good cross country runners are students who have a determination to do well in school as well as in athletics. Few students are willing to pay the price to be good at both athletics and academics. " " TOE-ING " THE LINE. Sophomore Marty Bach con¬ centrates on the finish of his race.

Even though we lost a lot of meets and invitationals during the season, the kids believed enough in them¬ selves to come back at the end of the season and be one of the most power¬ ful teams in our region.

Niles West s starting offense included seniors Dan Kaplan, Paul Kasprak, Curt Takigu- chi, Gary Korrub and Elliott Baretz. The starting defense was built around J.J. McCulloh, Brian Buehling, Matt Klapman, Li Wang and Tony Kim. However, prospects for a winning season changed after a rash of injur¬ ies left the Indians without starting players at 11 of 22 positions. All four team captains, Todd Kassel, Curt Ta- kiguchi, Paul Kasprak and J.J. McCul¬ loh, suffered from injuries. In addi¬ tion, seniors Li Wang, Gary Nudelman and Tony Kim, all defensive starters, were injured. " The loss of this many important players would put any team in a bad situation. You just have to play the guys that are healthy, and be confi¬ dent ' explained junior Ramel Eailma, who was not able to play in six games because of a broken hand. " We put our heads together and tried to play the best we could with what we had ' said senior B.J. Miller. " The way 1 see it, no one else could have prepared any harder. I guess luck wasn ' t with us this year, " added sen¬ ior Elliott Baretz. When asked how the team ' s spirit held up despite the numerous inur- ies. Coach Richardson replied, " I ' ve been very pleased with the attitude and spirit of this football team. Some teams might have given up after los¬ ing their best players. But our boys have played hard against some of the strongest teams in the state. The questions of how good we could have been with everyone healthy always enters our minds. The team ' s numer¬ ous injuries did not completely damp¬ er the season. They learned how to better work as one unit, one team, together. " IM THE CRUnCM.

Developing a positive attitude toward people, school, and life is the major goal. " Quarterback Richard Dubin and linebacker Andy Bok helped the sophomores achieve their vic¬ tories. According to sophomore Scott Gripman, " Sticking together and helping out other team mem¬ bers is the only way you can achieve winning re¬ sults. " On the freshman level, q uarterback Duke Ross and quarterback Howie Amiel were key players in leading the team to a victory over Glenbrook north. Howie Amiel commented " It was a good learning exper¬ ience being part of the freshman team.

Par for the course and then some Playing golf takes good coordination, precise timing, and nerves of steel. All this can be found at Wilmette Golf Club where the golf team practices on its home course. Members travel there every day to work on their game. Their workout consists of put¬ ting, driving, and playing nine holes. Re¬ grettably, the amount of hard work and ef¬ fort that was exerted by the players was not always evident in their performances. The Prosh-Soph team had a winless sea¬ son. This was attributed to various rea¬ sons, but Coach Galla explained, " The main problem was that there was not enough players to fill the positions. " Coach Hoeppner was more successful with his varsity level players. The team had two wins and placed fifth in its conference. Leading the way was senior Tom Joseph. " Our season would have been a complete loss if it weren ' t for the success of Tom Joseph, " commented varsity member, senior Mike Russo. Joseph placed second in conference and first in sectionals. He also finished in the top twenty at state com¬ petition. The season for the golf team was best summed up by George Olney, " Though our season was pretty cloudy, the few bright spots made it all worth while. " 132 Boys Golf Impressive " Impressive ' ' is the best word to de¬ scribe the Boys ' Gymnastics team ' s performance. Varsity coach John Bur- kel, sophomore coach Louis Torres, and freshman coach Jodi riebbia all worked diligently towards the ambi¬ tious goal they set at the beginning of the season — to place within the top eight teams in the state. Varsity coach Burkel commented, " Our Varsity team was larger than usual and their ability was quite sub¬ stantial. The only schools which posed a problem to us were Rolling Meadows, Addison Trail and Evan¬ ston, which had the state champion on its team. ' ' Of the 25 gymnastics team members, those gymnasts whom the coaches felt deserved spe¬ cial recognition included: seniors Tom Joseph, all around; Scott Jack- son, still rings; Sung Kim, parallel bars; Rajen Patel, parallel bars; Jor¬ dan Borak, pommel horse; Glen Christophersen, main vaulter; and ju¬ nior Darrin Bairn, all around. Some members remarked on their involvement on the team. Junior Dar¬ ryl Colen stated, " Overall, gymnastics is a fairly good team to be on. Practice is often exhausting and tedious, but in the end its advantages usually outweigh its disadvantages. ' ' Most members agreed that boys ' gymnas¬ tics is a productive activity which gives students an opportunity to gain expertise in gymnastics with the help and guidance of experienced coaches. As sophomore Andy Browder commented, " The team gives me a unique opportunity to de¬ velop myself physically with training from really accomplished coachs. It ' s a very enjoyable experience.

" Our team is very hard work¬ ing, and will improve with experience, " added Varsity Coach Jodi Nebbia. " The factor is courage, " commented sopho¬ more Ryoko Yamaguchi of the J.V. team. The J.V. team consisted of seven returning girls that had depth and potential. Each girl made her contribution which led to the success of the team. " The girls worked toward improving their level of difficulty, but still were consistent and maintained proper form throughout the sea¬ son, " said Coach Marie Helgeson. The freshmen team showed a lot of personal¬ ity throughout the competitive season. With ev¬ ery meet, their scores continued to improve. All of the gymnasts were outstanding in their own ways.

Boys Hockey Starting a tradition Fall marked the beginning of what will hopefully be a great tradition with West students. It marked the birth of the Miles West Hockey Team. Though not officially sanctioned by the school, the hockey Indians must all be Miles West students and they wear the red and white proudly in each game. There are, of course, doubts about how well any newly-formed team will fare against veteran oppo¬ nents, but the Indians shattered all disbelief through strong victories over tough, experienced opponents like the Motre Dame Dons. Team Sponsor Jim Ledwon, father of junior goal¬ ie Tim and freshmen center Scott Ledwon, stated that, " At first we were hoping for a five hundred ' season, but with each game tha t we played, we proved we could accomplish much more ' and " much more ' ' is exactly what they did accomplish. Explaining the team ' s success, senior wing Scott Mandl said, " There ' s a certain chemistry out on the ice. We play very well together. " As the team improved with each and every game, they soon established themselves as a pow¬ erhouse in the Central Division of the Metropolitan Hockey League. The Indians ' formula for success was a combination of great skating and stick han¬ dling skills like that of team captain junior Chris Kopier, the type of hard checking that junior defen¬ seman Aaron Joffe liked to dish out, and the stin- gey goaltending of Ledwon in the nets. Hopefully, the team ' s first year success will carry on long into the future. Dale Sherman Boys hockey 139 Bottom Row: Ricky Sonshine, Brad Grodsky, Sung Kim.

Late season efforts make for a strong finish Expectations were high as the 1986 Soccer season began. However, the team experienced a frustrating set¬ back when multi-talented Jason Mueller moved away. Senior Craig Keer commented, " I ' m proud of this year ' s team. Despite the loss of lead¬ ership of Jason Mueller, we have been very dedicated and always gave 110%. " The team played close and competitive games with five of the top teams in the state. Throughout the season, the Indians frightened almost every team by putting pressure on them during the entire game. Outstanding varsity players includ¬ ed co-captains Craig Keer and Jimmy Kim. Other excellent players were seniors Rob Wolak, Eddie Engels, and Mike Giterman. Juniors Alix Kogan, Tom Yim, and Henry Yim also played remarkably well, and left the team with an optimistic outlook for next year. Varsity Coach Brennan con¬ gratulated this year ' s Varsity soccer team. Ten out of the 18 teams that were on the schedule had been ranked. It was a credit to the school and the team that they had taken each game, one at a time, and given it all they could. Co-captain Jimmy Kim explained, " This year has been very productive and quite a learning exper¬ ience. Even though our record does not reflect our dedication or talent. I ' m very happy with our results. " Although JV Coach Klebba was not looking forward to losing some of his better players to the Varsity team next year, he was pleased that his team was bigger and stronger than most of their opponents. He felt that the team had a tremendous interest in playing games and that they were always will¬ ing to play a game against anybody. " When we were rained out for three days, I went crazy not being able to play soccer, because I love it so much, " stated junior George Kolo- vos. Unfortunately for the Indians, other schools were just more skillful at trap¬ ping, passing, and shooting. Junior George Langis added, " Even though we didn ' t win all our games, we never quit trying. ' ' Junior Robert Keller con¬ cluded, " This has been a great year for the JV team. We learned a lot and had a great time. I am sorry to be leaving the JV team, but I am greatly anticipating being on Varsity next year.

A goal for the future The coaches of freshman and soph¬ omore boys soccer were very positive regarding the performance of their re¬ spective teams. Freshman Coach Pe¬ ter Zom said that his team was " truly devoted ' Sophomore Coach Jim Sweeney expressed similar feelings, stating, " My sophomore team will definitely form the nucelus of next year ' s Varsity team, and they should place very well in their conference games ' Although positive, both coaches were realistic, and aware of their dis¬ advantages: Zorn commented, " We re doing well, but the rains early on in the season set us back quite a bit, and the lack of park district pro¬ grams for soccer, which other schools have, has certainly hurt us ' Players whom the coaches felt deserved spe¬ cial commendation included Fresh¬ men Rack Lee, Michael Park, Richard Choi, Mark Buisseret and Dennis Ku- secek. Outstanding sophomores were Andreas Limber, center forward; Lam- bros Kalamaris, sweeper; and An¬ dreas Harris, defender. In addition to the players, the coaches deserve recognition.

This is just one of the skills necessary for a goqd team. 146 Softball Softball goes for their goals After a second place conference finish last year, the Girls ' Varsity Softball Team had a tough act to follow. Coach Sfickas, however, felt confident about the team because of the return of twelve varsity players. There are three different levels in girls ' softball: varsity, junior varsity, and a fresh¬ man team. There was an average of fifteen players on each team. Coach Sfickas hoped that with sen¬ ior Diane Field-catcher, senior Jodi Israel-center field, and senior Kathy Cote-pitcher infielder, the varsity team would be led to victory. Part of their success was due to the closeness of the group. Senior Diane Field commented, " The team, this year, is very close knit. We have all made personal goals as well as team goals. A common goal among the team is to go undefeated. I feel that with a lot of work and dedication this may become a reality. " Mew to softball this year was a Freshman Team. The coach is Steve Ramseyer. This new program was started in order to start training the players so that their ability would improve by their senior year. This was one program that tried to strength¬ en the softball team for the future. Elaine Barrington Softball 147 PERFECT FORM. Good form plays an important role in scoring well on a dive. Varsity diver, Kirk Oliver, concentrates before his dive. Setting goals " Take your mark, get set. go! " These magic words, followed by the whistle, signaled the swimmers to dive off the starting blocks and plunge into the water. Whether doing the backstroke, breaststroke, or but¬ terfly, the boys swim team was adept at it all. The Junior Varsity and Varsity swim teams ' major goals were to get third place in conference and to qualify as many swimmers as possible for state. " Although the team lost a lot of seniors, the team is basically look¬ ing for their best times, " stated senior swimmer Da¬ vid Haberkom. The team ' s exceptional swimmers were seniors Ed Sanchez, Mike Gut and junior Brian Gut. Coach Don Larson was very optimistic about hav¬ ing a big season, while sophomore Coach Steve Ramseyer said, " I hope to have an above average season. They just have to work hard and we ll be competitive. Although this year we lost a lot of our key individuals to Varsity, we have a lot of interesting newcomers. They are off to a great start and are in for a promising season. " Julie Hartman Eric Litt UP AND OVER.

Although the number of swim¬ mers decreased slightly from last year, Lucas claimed, " It ' s the quality, not the quantity. " Dedication and spirit were most important this season. Despite their 2-9 record, the team stuck together through the good and bad. " The team spirit is terrific and we always make the best of our meets, whether we win or lose, " commented junior Wendy Martin. Martin, along with junior Mary Theodore and soph¬ omores Mamy Pierini and Patty Tzortzis, led the team in the 200 medley relay. Junior Kathy Brophy, freshman Joan Jovero, and sophomore divers Mia Adler and Mamie Malnekoff also showed outstanding individual perfor¬ mances. Adler broke the JV record and competed at the varsity level. " The self confidence they showed in them¬ selves really helped them achieve their goals, their suc¬ cess is something the whole team is proud of, " replied head diving coach Torrez. Jodi Mebbia, the assistant coach, also helped a great deal, not only with organizing the meets, but also with keeping the swimmers in the water, " next year looks even more promising, not only because almost all of us are returning, but because the excellent support and coach¬ ing that we had will be available to us again next year. Maybe this will bring more swimmers together, " stated sophomore Patty Tzortzis. The girls ended their season by placing fifth in conference.

The Indi¬ ans came off a successful year in 1986, winning sectionals and advancing the entire team to the state tournament. The players also acquired two new coaches, replacing head coach Frank Sacks and assistant coach Len Winans. The new varsity coach was Mr. Ernie Mitropoulis, while Mr. Ron Gralewski took command of the frosh-soph team. The new coaches brought a great deal of excitement as well as many new tech¬ niques and ideas, to the team. " I ' m very excited about our new coach. It was interesting to see how another person takes charge of the same group of kids ' commented senior co-captain Tom Malkin. Boys Tennis 153 Amidst all the excitement, however, the team lost a Fine player. Sopho more Eric " Scoop ' ' Schul- man, a singles player, was lost to the sunny skies of Arizona. The team, however, enjoyed success in spite of this disappointing loss. " We just had to work a little harder to fill the void that Eric left, ' ' stated junior Rohit Patel. The varsity team had five returning members including seniors Tom Malkin, Mike Russo and Sam Varghese. Coach Mitropoulis admitted, " 1 was quite pleased with the performance of the re¬ turning lettermen, as well as the season overall. " Michael Russo On YOUR MARK.

The team, dominated by juniors, worked hard to defend the Indian name. Outstand¬ ing members of the team included juniors Doug Hirsh, Larry Meyer, Steve Rosen, Angelo Tsagalis, Ben Yashon, and senior Mark Kim. Senior Jay Swidler commented, " This year we have a really good chance of making it all the way to conference because of the great effort put forth by the younger members of the team. The Miles West Track Team has a very bright future in front ot it.” The approximately forty members trained day and night for their competitions, running in the hallways after school when the weather was unsa¬ tisfactory, and running outside when the weather was suitable. " The team consisted of several fine individual athletes who expect to have a lot of success during the season,” stated Coach Camp¬ bell. " Everyone had a really great time. The coaches helped us immensely, building up our self-confidence and motivating us to work our har¬ dest,” said junior Roderick Pintang. Being a mem¬ ber on the team can be a rewarding experience. Team members can leam a lot about themselves, from coping with defeat, to finding their physical limitations. Without teamwork and discipline. Miles West would not have such a fine track team.

With their outstanding talent they should do very well in competition. " This statement, made by coach Jean Armour, reflected a great deal of confidence. Coach Armour headed the team of 30 dedicated girls, who worked hard during practices in order to develop their poten¬ tial. Some of these members were: senior Kathy Campbell; juniors Sara Kim, Gail Dennis and Lori Yetter; and sophomore Peggy Campbell. Junior Sarah Kim commented, " On track, a runner learns to work and encourage teammates during those tough meets. It is a good experience for everyone involved. " Junior Gail Dennis added, " Track is really a good sport because it keeps you so fit. " " Track and field is a sport which allows an ath¬ lete to compete both as an individual and for the team, " coach Armour concluded, " There is an event for everyone in track, from throwing and jumping to sprints and distance events.

Volleyball season has come once again. The freshmen teams led by Coaches Mat- lak and Hisbet, had a tough season but im¬ proved a great deal. Coach nisbet stated, " Each of the girls worked hard. I know Coach Sfickas is looking forward to working with this team in years to come. " " The girls help support each other. They are aggres¬ sive on the court and are fighters to the end, ' ' added Coach Matlak. The JV team had a winning record of sev¬ en and three under Coach Ray Carr. The team placed fourth in the Evanston tourna¬ ment. In the conference they tied for first with Deerfield and Maine West. Everyone on the team was pleased with the season. " We played as a team and supported each oth¬ er ' said juniors Emily Yep and Julie Daehler. The Varsity team, coached by Paula Sfickas, practiced long and hard for their season. However, injuries set them back. Senior Karla Hellestrae sprained her ankle and was out for most of the season. Just a few games later Lynn " Peeps ' ' Piper sprained her foot. The injuries did not stop there. Hot long afterward, Linda Steiner broke her finger. Through all of this, the team managed to win seven games. It was not considered a winning season, but the players thought it was a great season. " Even though we didn ' t win a lot of games we had good fan partici¬ pation and we were inspired.

Coach Porter commented, " It is a young team, mostly juniors, and hard workers. " Some of these outstand¬ ing members who, by the season ' s end, became conference champions were: Junior John Lee who competed at 98 pounds, junior Greg Rudin at 105 pounds, junior George Santillan at 119, junior Scott D ' Agostino at 126, and senior Andy Rudin at 145. These wrestlers, and the rest of the Varsity team competed in the Regional tournament. Coach Porter remained optimistic that the Indians would emerge victorious from this year ' s regionals, even through a year when wrestlers learned and obtained more experience.

Men at work When you are a spectator, wrestling seems a lot easier than it really is. In reality, it is a very difficult sport to master. The wrestlers put a great deal of time and effort into their training. Between staying after school to prepare for meets and all the home¬ work from school, there is a lot of pressure on the athletes. Freshman Riki Utsunomiya commented, " Al¬ though wrestling is a lot of work, it is all worth it because it is very exciting especially when you win. ' ' Coach Harootunian has successfully led his team to many victories. " There are a lot of hard working kids on the team. They ' ve made a lot of progress.

Amy Grimaldi Boys Wrestling 163 Achieving the balance Senior year, more than any oth¬ er, taught students to allocate their time wisely. With college applica¬ tions, homework, and extracurricu¬ lar activities such as football, soc¬ cer, student government or news¬ paper, most riiles West seniors dis¬ covered only a few hours could be devoted to each of their pursuits. Homecoming, prom, seminar for scholars, and many other activi¬ ties, held throughout the year, helped to relieve seniors ' anxieties concerning academics, however. By second semester, even a touch of senioritis could be observed in West ' s hallways. So, despite the hectic schedule most seniors faced, their high school experience was a combination of relief, nostal¬ gia, and appreciation. " After four years at West, I ' ve grown accus¬ tomed to its surroundings, and its going to be hard to start all over again, ' ' explained senior Caress Calara. " I ' m really happy to be graduating, but I ' m going to miss my friends.

Ho, it ' s much better than that. It is, of course, the Senior Section of the Cafeteria, a place where plans and friendships have been made and broken. The south end of the cafeteria, near the place where you are supposed to put your trays, is home away from home for many seniors. Seniors even have their own vending machines and lunch line (the one closest to the south exit of the cafeteria). Underclassmen must move over for seniors when they are in this line. The round tables signify the power and prestige the senior has achieved, almost like King Aurthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Still, several seniors expressed some criticism of the area. Greg Czemick sug¬ gested, " We need more tables and chairs, oh, and a T.V. and V.C.R. so we can see the episodes of " Miami Vice " we missed while attending private school related social functions over the week¬ end. " Mike Russo complained, " The ta¬ bles are too small and your feet stick to the floor. " Karla Hellstrke added. " We finally got to sit here after four years and now we can ' t even see the clock. " However, the overall response of sen¬ iors was positive. James Van Odol summed it all up when he commented, " Sitting at the senior tables is more en¬ rapturing than a Robert frost poem and twice as exciting as landing on the moon. 1 want to be buried with one of those tables!

" Hey man. Like what do I do now? ' ' There are many choices for seniors when they leave niWeHi. Some get full-time jobs, either working retail, at gas stations, or even working for dear- old Dad. The Army is always looking for good men and women to put their lives on the line for their country. But jobs don ' t always come easily and the Army might not want you, so that means you may have to resort to a life of crime, or be a bum. So, when this question comes to mind while you are daydreaming in class, think about these choices. And, if worse comes to worse, you could always go to college.

Sizewise since freshmen year, how many of us have grown six inches? How many of us haven ' t? Stylewise- how many of us have changed from sweats to " Guess " jeans, or vice-versa? Weekendwise - this is always the most superior and drastic change made, freshmen year our parents dropped us off every¬ where and picked us up at 11:00, our curfew. How, we drive and stay out until whenever we want. We venture out to new and exciting territory, downtown. Lake Geneva, downstate, and lots of other places we never could have gone before. Partywise- we have replaced our own little freshmen parties with huge parties that can ' t be called our own, but could be called everybody ' s. The scary thought is, next fall we are going to be freshmen again. Bet that all of us will have five pens and three books and the seniors will be laughing at us. Julie Hartman Seniors 173 Leaving the cafeteria, senior Todd Sucherman dashes to his next class. The third time a student is tardy can result in an after school detention It ' s the attitude that counts Regardless of how diverse the Class of ' 87 is, in both people and personalities, we share one common trait, " senior atti¬ tudes. " The most prominent attitude displayed by seniors is apathy. After enduring the past three years of the same old " schtick, " seniors acquire an " 1 don ' t care " philosophy. This is reflected in a new-found negligence of daily school work and a lessoning of stress on physical appearance. Another outstanding trait that most seniors exhibit is a classi¬ cally arrogant attitude. The " I ' m always right, you ' re always wrong, so don ' t argue with me " train of thought is a rather common one. One rather easily noticed senior complex is the " laid back attitude. " We tend to be relaxed and easy-going about anything that comes our way. This feeling usually becomes more evident as the school year progresses, since we ' ve already been accept¬ ed into college and our social standing has proven solid. Those underclassmen who have to deal with seniors pos¬ sessing these three aforementioned traits may find it difficult, but they knowingly accept it because they know that soon they will be seniors too.

Senior year marks the end of formal education for some, and what will seem like just the beginning of the educational pro¬ cess to others. To those who are going on to higher education, the choices are vast. A tremendous number of questions need to be answered, including: " Should I stay at home or travel? ' " Should 1 attend a major state university or a small college?; " " Do 1 want a public school ora private school?; " " What field do 1 want to major in?; " and, " Where will I fit in best? " To answer these qustions a student can consult parents, other students or the college counselor. The best person to ask, though, is one s self. The first step is to visit schools of interest to get a feel for what life is like on that particular campus. Then, after gathering information such as class rank, test scores and complete extra¬ curricular background, students must send in written applica¬ tions to the schools best suited to their interests. Most schools reply with letters of acceptance or rejection within six weeks, and after that, it is all up to the student. Mo matter where he she may end up going, though, there is a high probability that they will do just fine after spending four reward¬ ing years here at West.

" How will I look? ' , " How should 1 act? " , " How do I do this right? ' . These words were ever-present, during our freshman plight. Then, we were sohpomores, maturity no major strength; Getting involved, still making friends; in Hi-We, having faith. Feeling somewhat settled, we became ready for more; taking PSAT ' s, staying out late, claiming to know the score. Junior year, I suppose that we were just a bit more lax. Weekdays went by slowly, weekends much too fast. ACT ' S, SAT ' s, college stuff abounding. We became closer, our collective voice resounding. Finally, we have become seniors, and not at all too soon. The one year to end all, in which great times are strewn. Worries about college, and those things that come next.

I certainly was not as cool as a cucumber on that day. May 12,1986, the day of my first advanced placement test, U.S. his¬ tory. It was probably the tensest. Most nerve-racking, and just plain difficult test I have ever taken. I studied for days, prayed for months, and finally made it through the three hour tests (was it only three hours? It seemed like eternity!) What did everyone do after the test? Stop studying, but continue praying. How the question was not. Will I make it through the test?, but, on a scale of 1 to 5, Will I get a 5? For most people, it was a resounding " NO. " However, everyone was hoping for at least a 3, which as¬ sured college credit. Here are a few other seniors ' opinions on the fascinating, mysterious world of AP tests: Mark Savidge: The difficulty lev¬ el of the AP tests gives me insight as to how 1 will perform in the adult world. Mark Gussin: The AP exams are inten¬ sive tests and really challenge one ' s knowledge of the subject. Rachel Oliker: They take a lot of prep¬ aration, but it pays off when you see your score, usually. Jules Roman: A 2 is better than two I s. Although it takes hours of time and hard work, it is possible to pass the AP test. But that ' s only U.S. history; there ' s still European history, calculus, Span¬ ish, English, physics, . ..

A.P. classes, mandatory courses, and electives may all be found on a senior s schedule, but the reasons for taking these courses are as different as the seniors themselves. For those seniors considering a competitive uni¬ versity and who want a head start on their college education, there are Ad¬ vanced Placement, or A.P., courses. These courses are offered in every area of academic study, including, English, math, science, history, and foreign languages. They are designed to prepare a student for the A.P. test given in May. On a scale of five, if a student receives a score of three or better he she may find it possible to acquire college credit. To fulfill the social studies require¬ ment for graduation, many seniors take one of the following courses; John Roderich Sandra Rodriguez Jules Roman Ellen Root Allison Rosen Christine Ross Stephanie Ross Andrew Rudin Michael Russo Chittukkala Sabapathy Christine Samuel Edgard Sanchez Course offerings provide variety Family Living, Sociology, Economics, Psychology, Political Science, or Eu¬ ropean History. Consumer Education or Management for Living will meet the State Consumer Education re¬ quirement. Senior year is also a time to take electives, courses in a special field of study that interest a student. These classes vary from Clothing and Foods to Technical Drawing and Autos. They also help acquire the thirty-six credits needed to graduate. Senior year is a time for both ad¬ vanced learning and advanced enter¬ tainment. By having classes like A.P, ' s and electives, Miles West affords each senior an opportunity for both within the limits of one daily schedule.

" How¬ ever, many find that their days run from 7:30 until 6:00 or even later. Mo matter what time students leave the building, they have acquired part of " The West Experience. " It all starts freshman year when stu¬ dents walk into homeroom. From there they find friendships, old and new, turkey tetrazzini on the menu, and the " thought for the day. " After that, " MI-We-HI " takes over students ' lives. Classes and homework whiz by with great speed. When students look at the " cafe " experience, they see Mexican Cha-cha, French dressing in¬ stead of catsup, bagels, and a variety of junk food. Students also see the senior ' tables, band tables, and the « 1 ' ' I Diane Smason Daniel Smigiclski Kachcl Smith Sharon Smith C hristine Smolinski ( harlcs Snell llollic Sobcl Kicky Sonshinc Andrew Sprogis Jennifer Stellar Darryl Stern (iarrick Stern artwork of fellow and former students.

Senior Jill tied rich comments, " It ' s not keen, to be mean, to your dean. " The resource centers are available to help students better understand their course work. They can also be quite sociable. Many students find the resource centers an enjoyable place to relax with friends. Seniors That annual dreaded disease " ' Senioritis ' is a psychotic behavior commonly attributed to people In their final year of high school ' ac¬ cording to psychology teacher, Ron Albiani. " It ' s more conspicuous sec¬ ond semester,” adds chemistry teacher Dottle Fugiel. Most students think of it as a sudden attack, but it is actually a gradual four year process. As soon as a freshman enters high school the incubation period begins, noticeable signs can occur earlier than senior year. " I ' ve had It since sophomore year,” explains senior Jill Cohen. There are numerous symptoms at¬ tributed to this disease. For example, the following words and phrases do not exist in the vocabulary of people afflicted: homework; 7:30 am; school bus; cafeteria food; studying; com¬ plete, undamaged gym clothes; and being on time to class. Some people are enthused when It strikes, others are not so happy. Dr. Stein feels, " The later It hits the bet¬ ter.” Still others, a limited few, don ' t acknowledge its existence at all. Dr. Ring says, " There is no such tiling as senioritis.” However, most acknowledge that it does exist Senior Dana Shapiro ad¬ mits, " Yeah, we have It!” Those who have it are proud to say so. " Seniori¬ tis is a sometimes painful disease, but the best one you could ever get,” says senior Rachel Smith. The best sum¬ mary of this incredible phenomenon is a quote from social worker, Mr. Lee, " It ' s there.” Helaine Miller ' 87 Sandra Stiegel Evelina Stipisic Mary Suansing Jacalin Subrinsky Todd Sucherman Jennifer Suess Beth Sussman Jacob Swidler Alyssa Tadelman James Takaesu Curtis Takiguchi Carlos Talbot James Torrez Richard Trujillo James Tuchten Marie Tulen Thomas Turek Hoyo!

Seniors 199 200 Juniors get respect " Life is tough all over ' or so they say. Juniors disagree. As a ju¬ nior, one feels the stress more than ever. As Anne Liosatos explains, " Junior year has been the hardest year, I hope it doesn ' t get any harder. With A.P. tests and PSAT s and worrying about getting into good colleges, 1 have to work twice as hard to balance out my sched¬ ule ' But even with all the aca¬ demic difficulties, juniors have a lot of fun. Homecoming, prom, parties, and football games are only a few of the balancing agents that help them through the year. And best of all, with junior year comes the ad¬ miration from the underclassmen and the status of finally being up¬ perclassmen. Juniors-Division During their free time, juniors Mike Gershbein and Dessie Atsaves take a stroll out on the front lawn.

For some students, their class rank is a major disappointment, to others, a pleasent surprise. Class rank is figured by using a student’s semester grades. All grades are weighted on a scale of two to five, with five being the highest. Classes with the higher weights are usually more competitive and count more when a student ' s class rank is being figured. Senior Heather Doolittle stated. Class Rank puts unnec¬ essary preasure and stress on students. However, it is necessary evil, since many colleges and universities use a student ' s class rank to help determine addmision.

Testing On Tuesday, October 21, many juniors and some sophomores across the country were found taking the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test). The test consist¬ ed of two parts, verbal and math. Students were allowed 50 minutes for each section. Some juniors took the test to qualify for the national Merit Scholarship Program. Oth¬ ers, including some sophomores, took the test to get a general idea of what the actual SAT would be like, and also for extra prac¬ tice. When asked how the PSAT is looked upon, some replies were: The PSAT is a chance for sophomores and juniors to experience the pressure of taking the actual SAT. " Dr. Cocking-Counselor I think the test is a fair-to-good predic¬ tor of how the student will score on the actual SAT. " Mr. Chambers-Counselor " I feel it ' s a confidence builder. " Barbarba Handler-Counselor " I didn ' t think the test was that bad. I would have liked more time to finish the math section. " Linda Steiner-Junior thought the verbal section was a lot harder than the math section. " Katie Swanson-Juniors " The PSAT was the easiest test I ' ve ever taken, considering I finished it within 25 minutes. " Steve Livaditis-Junior " I believe that it is beneficial to the stu¬ dent population, especially for me. This will give me some idea as to how much I have to study to get a 1600 on the SAT.

Believe it or not, there are events oth¬ er than fire drills, finals, and PSAT ' s which interrupt this humdrum lifes¬ tyle. Those which exceed them all are the notorious Mi-We-hi pep assem¬ blies. These spirit-boosters let stu¬ dents forget that upcoming exam or term paper and just concentrate on having a good time. During an assembly, the entire school gathers in one gym and it ' s usually complete chaos as people ea¬ gerly search to find friends they ' ve seen only ten minutes before. After things settle down a bit, a speaker usually starts things off. Unfortunate¬ ly, his or her speech is usually inter¬ rupted midway, due to the sudden up¬ roar of the students. A popular ritual at Miles West is for each class, wheth¬ er it be freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, to continuously chant their class name, however sometimes oth¬ er things, less to the teacher ' s liking, are shouted back and forth. This be¬ comes somewhat of a contest based on which class is the rowdiest, al¬ though the seniors seem to inevitably end up winning. After the crowds tire down a bit and a rubber glove is thrown here or there, the athletes are announced and the cheerleaders do a routine. By then, the students have revived themselves and again start the clamor. Pep assemblies ultimate¬ ly come to a close with the pom pon squad doing a dance routine. What is the purpose to all this pan¬ demonium, one might ask? Well, ac¬ tually nothing, aside from riling up the athletes for victory and a good time. But really, isn ' t that reason enough?

" You don ' t have to shine the Schwinns anymore ' ' stated junior Steve Livaditis. The use of a car is very important in a teenager ' s life. Looking back on freshman and sophomore year, it was not difficult to forget those weekends spent walking around or riding bikes with " the group. " The hu¬ miliation of a carload of seniors that drove by yelling " freshman! " and spat out the window. On that cold, rainy, night when people thought that they were about as wet as they could possibly be, a group of kids drive by, along the curb of course, and drenched the group of pedestrians. There were some people who didn ' t mind not having their license. Says Junior George Langis, " It does not bother me, 1 just let everyone else drive me around. ' ' But the use of a car was very handy. In the words of Junior Paul Kim, " I can sleep later and not have to worry about missing the bus. " Most freshmen and sophomores couldn ' t wait to get their license; some for the convenience of getting around and others because they were just plain lazy. One thing was for sure: Cars and thinness just didn ' t mix. No more exercise; all those skinny fresh¬ man and sophomores turned fat six¬ teen.

Juniors 215 Sophomores slip into gear As sophomores re-entered West, they felt older, smarter, stronger, tougher and in the driver s seat. In fact they were ready to take off and escape from the memory of their freshman year, while driving to¬ wards adventuresome times. To many, being a sophomore had advantages, from open cam¬ pus to driving to school. There were new classes offered, including geometry, chemistry, and, of course, the ever-popular driver ' s ed. With the right touch of extra¬ curricular activities, from football to cheerleading to debate, the school day was complete. Mow that they had been in West for one year, they did not fear getting lost or hav¬ ing pennies thrown at them. Elena Leibovich, when asked what made her sophomore year more special than freshman year, replied, " The best thing is a course like driver ' s ed. There ' s nothing like being able to drive. " In their second year, sopho¬ mores were learning to balance their lives with academics as well as a touch of extracurricular activi¬ ties, which to many made school more enjoyable. When asked how she balanced her school day, soph¬ omore Ali Kwon replied, " During the day 1 focused on my classes, but I found time after school to join clubs and participate in school ac¬ tivities. " The class of ' 89 had much enthu¬ siasm and school spirit. They be¬ lieved they were the best class yet to walk the halls of NiWeHi.

After boarding at 6:50 in the morning, the students try to stay awake as the bus rambles along its route toward school. The first eight seats on the bus are always filled two times over with cowardly underclassmen who aren ' t brave enough to attempt the trip to the back of the bus. On the other hand, the last few seats are never occupied by more than two upperclassmen at a time. Conversation is sel¬ dom attempted, and except for the usual morning greetings and the " soft rock ' ' flowing from the bus dri¬ ver ' s radio, the bus is quiet. Upon approaching Niles West with a squealing halt that opens everyone ' s droop¬ ing eyelids, the students file from the bus neatly, row by row, until everyone is off. This is in marked contrast to junior high, where everyone stood up as soon as the bus stopped, clambering over each other to get into school. But, as one grows older, reaching the school ' s front door is the last thing most students would wish to do voluntarily, and prolong the event in whatever way possible. The bus pulls away and the weary students envy the juniors and seniors who have cars and can catch thirty extra minutes of sleep. The underclassmen wait impatiently until their sixteenth birthday when they won ' t have to do something as demeaning as riding the school bus.

But do you think of school? Probably not. West students were in for a surprise at the start of the school year! When they entered the building in mid-September to pick up their books, they could no longer hear the click-clack-clunk of their shoes on the smooth tile flooring in the hallways. Instead, their shoes sank into the new gray carpeting installed over the summer to match the pink walls painted last year. The administration installed the carpeting primarily to reduce the noise level in the hallways. However, it is also easier to maintain than the tile flooring. There is no waxing or mopping, but vacuuming and a periodic shampoo are necessary. Though the carpeting is not plush or luxurious, it fits the purpose of limiting the noise level in the hallways, a topic which teachers con¬ tinually complain about. Students have varying opinons on the new carpeting. Junior Laura Barreto says, " It gives the school a homey atmosphere. ' However, sophomore Janey Yu remarks, " It ' s a pain because it always makes me trip and I ruin my shoes. ' ' How maybe the carpeting will give students another reason to like or to dislike school even more.

The memory of recess. Recess is now no more than a blurry image pushed all the way back in our minds. But looking at those swings and the showy merry-go-round forced me to try them out once more. Some time in the course of our high school life this urge will compel us to once again swing on the swings and spin on the merry-go-round. It ' s just inevitable. Unknowingly, as the ninth grade rolled around, we all said goodbye to the swings, jungle gyms, and merry-go- rounds. The laughs and the cries would all be forgotten. Lunchtime would never again be accompanied by re¬ cess. Looking forward to lunchtime would no longer mean anticipating the restless playground or the football games on the field. All those sports and games that we once played would no longer be played. All those past rituals of the playground were just forgotten as relics of the past. But this force that brought me back to the play¬ ground, back to the seemingly ancient swings, back to the towering jungle gyms, perhaps will also bring you back to this once traditional pastime of ours. But for those five or ten minutes that I was there it was enough to revive the sweet memory that still existed in me. As 1 walked away 1 said goodbye to my playground friends, and then 1 knew it was my fond farewell to recess.

Which classes should I take? What ' s a " grade weight " ? What prerequisites will 1 need? Should I take an honors course or a regular course? What does " audit " mean? Sound confusing? Well, it is. These and many more questions are asked by most underclassmen at one time or another. To help students answer these ques¬ tions and make wise decisions is the job of the guidance counselor. The counselor plays an important role in the stu¬ dent ' s decision-making process. Counselors help stu¬ dents balance their workloads, take the required courses, and meet the college requirements for most schools. The process of selecting high school courses is not easy, though. It takes time and active participa¬ tion on the student ' s behalf as well as the counselor ' s. Freshmen probably have the toughest time choosing their courses. The large selection can confuse the aver¬ age freshman, in which case, they usually turn to their counselor. Freshman Jerry Wagner stated, " 1 wasn ' t too sure which classes I should take so my counselor gave me some good advice. " During the sophomore and junior years, there are a few classes that students are required to take, such as Western Civilization and health. Most build the rest of their schedule around these courses. Junior Paul Katz declared, " Choosing my courses wasn ' t hard at all this year. I knew what to expect and 1 got those required classes out of the way. " Selecting courses can be diffi¬ cult and confusing at times, but there really isn ' t much to worry about. You can always rely on your friend, the counselor.

For example, most freshmen get up at 5:30 in the morning to put on a new outfit everyday. On the other hand, sophomores prefer to wake up at 6:00 and throw on a nice sweater and a pair of jeans. Juniors will most likely tumble out of bed at 6:30 and grab the first pair of sweats they find. During the school day, freshmen stumble down the hallways carrying about six books at a time and a Chan¬ dler ' s full of puffy stickers. Sophomores strut around school with about three books and just a Chandler s (they ' ve outgrown puffy stickers by now!) Then what do the juniors carry you might ask? Well, that ' s easy! They ' re the ones who breeze through the day with a folder and possibly one book. As for the Chandler ' s — what ' s that??? Finally, you can always distinguish a freshman from a sophomore from a junior when it comes time to eat lunch. Freshmen wait last in line and don ' t dare to say anything to those cutting in front of them. Sophomors are usually the ones doing the cutting. Juniors don ' t bother with these foolish games. They simply go to McDonalds! Maybe it seems as though juniors always get their way, but that ' s not really true. They ' ve been through those freshman and sophomore stages, and still have to put up with their elders — the seniors. So under¬ classmen, have patience, and eventually your time will come to be on top!

This is the man who comes to school once for a presentation and several other times to collect money that students have either exhorted from their parents or earned on their own. The rings come in many sizes, with or without birthstones, and a variety o f designs and inscriptions on the outside. " Class rings are special because everyone gets the op¬ portunity to design their own. They ' re a great way of remembering your high school years and all the memo¬ ries these years hold, " stated sophomore Estelle Miko- lakakis. It is also popular for couples, as a sign of affec¬ tion, to exchange rings and wear them on chains around their necks. They can be exchanged for college rings once high school is completed, but many students choose to keep them as they are. Class rings aren ' t cheap, but they stay with you for a long time. Their sentimental value grows more and more. " They ' re a great way of remembering the school, " said sopho¬ more Maggie Duffy. Who knows, maybe forty years from now while looking at a school ring, those wonderful high school years will shine once again!

Sophomores 231 Focus on freshmen With eager, yet nervous looking faces, freshmen got their first feel¬ ing of high school as they took that step into Miles West. Different faces, new classes, and more homework- these were just a couple of things that made freshman year a memo¬ rable experience. " I came from a pretty small school, so it ' s exciting coming to Miles West with so many more peo¬ ple ' said freshman Anne Pullano. For some in-coming freshmen, it was hard to adapt to such a change. One event that helped stu¬ dents meet new people was the Freshman-Sophomore mixer. Many underclassmen found it easier to meet new friends in a more casual atmosphere such as a dance or a football game, than in the class¬ room. As the year progressed, fresh¬ men found more pressure being put on them to do well in school. There was more homework than in grammar school, and the classes were more difficult. Students found that they needed to put a lot of time into their studying. Despite all these fears of entering a new world, freshmen managed to feel right at home at Miles West.

If a freshman ' s first day in high school wasn ' t distinguished by some error in judgement such as a missed class, a shortened period at a later date often provided a similar ex¬ perience. " I was late for classes more than a few times, and I didn ' t have a chance to socialize with friends or get books for my next class ' explained freshman Trish Wright. Expressing similar sentiments, freshman Anna Minx commented, " I think the whole system is ridiculous. We should drop the classes that are missed instead of shortening each mod. " Despite the incon¬ venience and general confusion, however, most freshmen were eventually able to ad¬ just. " At first, I was really confused and walked into the wrong class at the wrong time, " stated freshman Mike Hartman. " After a while, though, it was much ea¬ sier.

For example, Mr. Peter Zom stated, " Lincoln Hall students have the hardest time getting used to the rules of Miles West of all my freshman students, since they have or enforce few at Lincoln Misato Miyama Hall ' Other schools, such as Fairview, are said to have fairly strict discipline which makes it easier for them to adapt. Freshmen most often complain of the lack of the benefit of the doubt which they are given from teachers when they are ignorant of the rules. Junior Aaron Joffe, looking back on his freshman year stated, " During one of the first weeks of school, I arrived about a minute late, thinking that late is late, I stopped at my locker before going to homeroom. When I showed up I could not believe I had been given a forty minute detention for being over five mintes late, since I had never heard of it. I guess 1 was Julie Mizock supposed to have read the student guidebook ' the complaints vary. The problem of adjustment to the detention policy is universal yet not very serious. More than anything else it is an education. Students should look upon this experience not as something awful, but rather as an initiation into high school.

Ress Maine Reyes Dahlia Reznik First day jitters As students look back upon this hideous memory, a faint smile lurks on some faces. Perhaps it ' s a recollection of some mortify¬ ing incident simply too unbearable to think about, or just too embarrassing to men¬ tion. For some it was a time of fear and insecurities, while for others, a new, excit¬ ing venture. Whatever one might call it, that first day at Miles West was definitely a period of uncertainty. The most difficult adjustment was the godforsaken hour you were forced out of bed. Scavanging the house for that perfect outfit to wear at 6:00 in the morning was just too much to bear. Another worry many faced was the terri¬ fying prospect of getting lost in the halls and having to check the numbers and ar¬ rows on the walls to see which way your next class was, or as a last resort, having to ask an upperclassman. If you really wanted to get to where you were supposed to be, the latter was not advised. But all the ru¬ mors of freshmen being the targets of flying pennies and mysterious elevator passes are just a myth. Miles West students actually treat ffesmen with the utmost re¬ spect, well maybe not that much respect. Once you got through the first day, things started running more smoothly. Of course, no one wants to be a freshman forever. Just take it step by step, year by year, and climb that totem pole until you too are finally the elite seniors.

Mo, it ' s not what you ' re thinking, it s " Freshmanitis " . Freshmanitis is a disease that strikes you in the first year of high school. It deprives its victim of the ability to accomplish primi¬ tive tasks like walking into the correct classroom, opening lockers, and carrying books. Freshmanitis also makes students highly subject to torment and pranks by upper¬ classmen, such as: 1) getting hit by thrown pennies, 2) being sold bogus elevator passes, and 3) receiving wrong directions when looking for their classroom. For most, the disease lasts for at least one se¬ mester and for some it lasts the entire year.

Academics, sports, extracurricular activities, social functions and part-time jobs might be some of the things stu¬ dents need to juggle and put in proper perspective if they are to succeed during their four years of high school. How much time for ac¬ tivities and sports can students successfully handle? Will there Jbe sufficient time for everything? For the serious-minded student, academics is the key factor and de¬ mands the greatest amount of time to achieve this delicate balance. 246 Academics-Division ACADEMICS Niles West brought new faces to the academic department. Science teacher Mr. Snyder and math teacher Miss Achino look through last year ' s yearbook. Part of balancing out the year was not only in a student ' s schedule and extracurricular activi¬ ties, but also included a little one-on-one with the teachers. Junior Don Nole asks for help from math teacher Mr. Qeis. Numerous chemistry students alternately read the procedure, perform the experiment re¬ quired, and copy down the appropriate data. These students certainly look industrious, yet as those who have already taken chemistry know, not even the shadow knows what mis¬ chief lurks in the heart of chemistry students.

Headed by library director Arnold Agnos, the project s struc¬ ture included a speaker s presenta¬ tion each month, from October to April. " Miles West had some of the leaders in almost every industry speak ' Agnos explained. In October, Janet Hutting of the Real Estate Research Corporation informed students of the opportu¬ nities present in her field. Featured in Movember ' s " Art Jubilee " pre¬ sentation concerning the arts were singer Mick Fortuna of the Buck¬ inghams, actress Kim Fitzwater from the Goodman Theater, jour¬ nalist Dan Ruth of the Chicago Sun- Times, musician Gary Stucka of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and artist Sabina West, an instructor at Skokie ' s Village Art School. On January 15, Martin Luther King, Jr. ' s birthday was commemorated with a guest speaker, and in March, Ruth Ratney, owner and publisher of the movie review magazine Screen, made a special appear¬ ance. " The speakers were not paid, " Agnos stated. " They only re¬ ceived token gifts, yet, they all de¬ voted their time in an effort to com¬ municate with younger people. " According to Agnos, it was this special cooperation of speakers, teachers and students which made the program possible. " We had the cooperation and effort of everyone involved. 1 don ' t know of too many programs that have be n as suc¬ cessful as ours, and I think it was worth all the effort we had to make. " Johanna Pelos Lawrence Broy-Science Academics 249 250 i l Peer Counseling proves popular It was 7:35 and students were doing their usual in homeroom, such as finishing homework, gabbing with friends, and getting in some last minute studying. Then a student walked into the room, interrupted whatever the other students were doing, and explained that he or she was a peer counseling leader. That was the first time that anyone had heard about peer counseling. The leader gave a brief explana¬ tion of what peer counseling was all about, and passed out sheets to anyone interested in joining. For the next week talk went around school about peer coun¬ seling. What was it? And what wasn ' t it? These were just two of the questions that students asked each other. Finally, those interested spoke to either Mr. Lee, the sponsor of peer coun¬ seling, or to a friend who was al¬ ready involved in it, got a group of friends together, and decided to join. As they arrived at their first meeting, students were greeted by two more peer counseling leaders. These leaders were ex¬ perienced in peer counseling, and had their own groups. Basi¬ cally, peer counseling meetings were a place for students to meet and talk about whatever was on their minds, with the guidance of their leaders. Faculty members were never present at these meetings, so students felt freer to talk with each other. Games, called energizers, were played to help familiarize the members of the group with one another. Bonds became formed between the members of each group, and they learned to trust each other, and tell others about their prob¬ lems. Peer counseling was a fun way for students to make new friends, and, rid themselves of some of their anxieties. And in no time, those new members looked forward to becoming leaders.

Devra Resnick Academics 255 An open and closed case Last year, closed hallways be¬ came the new enemy to many students here at Niles West. Teachers awaited those mo¬ ments when they would be able to write detentions out to those who violated the new rule. This year carpeting was put through¬ out the hallways to reduce the noise pollution. With the new carpeting came a trial period of six weeks of closed hallways from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. which became a great success. There are still many mixed feel¬ ings on the closed hallways is¬ sue to this day. here are a few comments. " I feel that closed hallways are a welcome relief to classes in¬ volved during those mods. It does not restrict the freedom of students to going to the library or from visiting a counselor ' Mr. Swanson " I think they are great. It doesn ' t detract from student rights from being in the halls. " Mr. Dvorak " I don ' t mind having closed hallways because my passes get me through the halls safely. " Ken Hogan " I don ' t like closed hallways because it confines me to the cafeteria, which is usually over¬ crowded. " Amy Grimaldi " As far as I am concerned, the students have nothing to do with the decision. Therefore, it is un¬ fair. " George Langis " I think they are breaking our constitutional rights as stu¬ dents. " Frank Psyhogios " I ' m opposed to the whole idea. I walk through a closed hall everyday without a pass. In gen¬ eral it has proven ineffective.

Teamwork here gets the job done faster. Students learn about life Humanities is one of the most in¬ teresting and unusual classes of¬ fered at Miles West. It is normally a two semester course, but students have the option of taking it for only one semester. Students must de¬ cide in advance which semester to take, however, since different mate¬ rial is covered each semester. First semester covers several dif¬ ferent topics, including an introduc¬ tion to music, dance, painting, pho¬ tography, and poetry. The course also focuses on the Holocaust and the threat of the nuclear age. Mov¬ ies, books and Field trips are all a major part of the class. Senior Devra Resnick commented, " Hu¬ manities is like no other class I have ever taken. We see a lot of movies and go on plenty of Field trips. ' ' Second semester covers many of the same ideas as First semester. However, the emphasis lies on the change in traditions in America, and the effect of ethnic groups on this change. The Negro, native American Indian, and Mexican- American are all studied. Humanities is a course for the student whose interests cover a wide range of areas. It has a grade weight of three and the instructor is Tom McMahon. Senior Michele Feinberg sums her thoughts on Hu¬ manities, " I Find this class extreme¬ ly interesting. It deals with current events and other topics that affect me everyday. It is not just the studying and memorizing of school books. I have really gotten a lot out of this class. ' ' Elaine Barrington Marjorie Stevens-Social Studies Sr 1 Academics 259 Counseling the college bound Frank Mustari received his bachelor ' s and master ' s degrees from Loyola University, in Guid¬ ance and Counseling. Since re¬ ceiving his master ' s degree, he has attended over 15 summer programs for college counsel¬ ors, including ones at Stanford and harvard. He has even been to a class in London, England. His first job was as a high school history teacher. Then he came to Miles West where he was a guid¬ ance counselor for about 20 years. He left in 1981 to be a prin¬ cipal at a performing arts school in Chicago, then returned to Miles West three years ago to be our first college counselor. Mr. Mustari calls himself a " college junkie ' ' because no matter where he is, he never re¬ jects an opportunity to drive through to look at a campus. In the past three years he has seen over 200 colleges, in cities such as Mew York, Boston, Washing¬ ton D.C. and Miami. Most visits are by invitation, either from one school, or from a group of schools in an area. After seeing a school he comes back to give a report to our guidance counsel¬ ors. " It is beneficial that the counselors are informed about the schools so that they may bet¬ ter assist the student when he or she makes this important deci¬ sion. " When asked about his plans for the future Mr. Mustari replied, " I plan to stay right where I am. I enjoy being a college counselor. I feel it is very exciting and ever- changing. I love it. " His advice for students is to investigate and visit many schools before mak¬ ing a choice. " There are more than 3000 colleges in this coun¬ try. The possibilities are end¬ less.

A continuation of public speaking, this course offered the more gifted speakers in the school a chance to expand their rhetorical ho¬ rizons. Speeches of persuasion, intro¬ duction and debate were but a few of the difficult assignments tackled by the class. Senior Elliott Baretz described the class as " AP Talking " . " It gives us speakers a chance to earn solid credit for our talents " he quipped. Senior Brad Qrodsky, described by his class¬ mates as a " modem day Cicero " , stated, " Work for that class was a la¬ bor of love. The class definitely re¬ fined my already near-prizewinning talents ' " It ' s great to be in a class of speak¬ ers all on the same level, unafraid to give lengthy dissertations in front of an audience, " junior Stefanie Krakow remarked.

No charge for admission, just sit back and watch the movie. But when the film goes on, the heads go down on the desk with the eyes shut. Watching history films and seeing pictures of guys doing experi¬ ments in technicolor will do that to you. And for some reason, the film " Why Man Creates " seems to keep popping up in every classroom. Watching films in class will always be more pop¬ ular than listening to bor¬ ing lectures about Eur¬ ope or, even worse, lis¬ tening to poetry. Howev¬ er what it comes down to, movies in class will al¬ ways be an opportunity to catch up on some of the sleep you lost the night before. Senior Bet- tina Adam states, " Mov¬ ies are a waste of time for most people, except for someone who wants to learn something. Never¬ theless, it is a nice break from the everyday class¬ room routine.

I love it ' senior Craig Keer explained of his psychology class. Psychology, a one-semester course, year after year, draws a large amount of students. Focusing on human behavior and the way the brain operates, the curriculum is of key interest to stu¬ dents. " I completely enjoyed the cou rse, ' ' senior Scott Mandl stated. " Studying for the tests was no ma¬ jor deal. I wanted to because the subject matter was so interesting. ' ' In addition to the core subject matter, students received an addi¬ tional education. " I learned a lot about myself, ' ' junior Dessie At- saves said. " The course changed my life, " she concluded. Psychology instructor Ron Al- biani summarized the course by saying, " Psychology can provide in¬ sights into human behavior which may not be directly and readily available to a student studying oth¬ er disciplines. Questions of how and why we learn, the relationship between physical and mental func¬ tioning, and the approaches to and achievement of one ' s unique po¬ tential can be of immense value to a thoughtful student.

Begin¬ ners have a choice of taking either the Chefs course or Foods 1 first semes¬ ter, and Foods 2 second semester. Chefs introduces the techniques and terminology a future chef should know. Foods 1 2 takes one through the world of quick-breads (breads that do not require yeast to rise), and also includes how to choose different kinds of meat, vegetables, fruits, and soups. After taking either the Chefs course or the Foods 1 Sc 2 prerequisite, one is ready to take more advanced courses. Foods 3 is a culinary trip through Europe Asia. This course lets you make delicious dishes from countries such as China, Italy, France, and Germany. Germany is a favorite country to do in this unit be¬ cause old-fashioned, gingerbread houses are made there. Foods 4 cov¬ ers the advanced techniques of can¬ dymaking, cake decorating, restau¬ rant operation, and catering. Some of our devoted Miles West Foods teachers had these comments to say about the Foods courses of¬ fered at Miles West. Since we all have to eat, why not learn how to cook right? Mrs. Chau- sow Due to the dual role of young men and women making wise food choices, it will be even more impor¬ tant after high school to make these choices. So by taking foods, they can improve themselves in this area. Mrs. Oldham Amy Cozza _ _ J Academics 269 r r People cultures flourish at West One of the most interesting classes a student can take is People and Their Cultures. Unlike most other classes, this one offers students a choice. One may study either Africa, China and Ja¬ pan or the Middle East, India and Chi¬ na. The class is also unique because it is a survey history course which has no time barriers, is mandatory for freshmen, and has only one grade weight offering. At the time they are participating in the class, few students realize its val¬ ue. Junior Aaron Jaffe commented, " When 1 was taking it, I thought the class was a waste, except for the easy grades and the nice teacher. But now that 1 look back, I suppose I profited considerably ' Junior Tom Mazarakis stated, " 1 think that the most perma¬ nent feature of that class for me was my first semester teacher, Mr. John Moshak. Me really meant a lot to me _ Georgiana Nord-Reading Center Secretary Cindy Philbin-Social Studies Re¬ source Center Secretary Lois Samuels-Special Education Secretary and is still an acquaintance of mine, if not a friend ' The curriculum of People and Their Cultures is quite simple. A good por¬ tion of first semester is usually devot¬ ed to teaching the theory of evolution and second semester concentrates on the respective cultures. Junior Alex Tzortzis stated, " My favorite culture was Africa. I really found the many comparisons to Paleolithic cultures informative and interesting ' People and Their Cultures is a unique course with many different di¬ mensions. The interaction between the student, teacher and educational media forms the educational exper¬ ience. Mo student can graduate from such a class without gaining a better concept of history.

May¬ be it ' s the fact that she went to McDonald ' s for lunch while everyone else ate the cafeteria food. Balance is the key So many questions and such confusion came with a new school year. Already our scales were tipped over. With failing our biggest fear. This shirt may seem as though it speaks for itself, yet the Genesis pandemonium created by their concert in October sur- Student Union did it again. Their elaborate planning was not wasted. Homecoming was perfect and a huge success And our victory just waiting to be tasted. prised most fans and critics. The " Invisi¬ ble Touch ' ' had very visible effects. Junior Dennis Agnos and senior Dena Abrams try not to pose too much for this " candid ' ' picture. Try a little harder next time, guys. NP A ity t r a 19B Half the year is gone The last final is finished. And though the scale is somewhat even. The thought of balance has not diminished. The musicals and plays students performed this year Should not have been missed by a one. They rehearsed long hours and many days- the good old-fashioned way to get things done. Our failures might have pained us at the time. But remember we each have gifts and hidden talents. Or we wouldn ' t have reached our highest goal And achieved a sense of balance. We live a life where balance is the key The key to unlock the difficulty of each day. We need patience, friends and positive thinking To allow it to show us the way.

Closing Section 295 " Wondering " how well bids will sell, sophomores Sandi Jaggi and Lori Clark sit at the front of the cafe. As usual, dances were highly popular this year. A balance well struck June finally arrived and, at last, the balance had been struck, from their well-balanced positions the seniors took their first step into the adult world, while underclassmen progressed to their next educational plateau. Glancing back, all had their special memories of the year, but the greatest memories were those that were shared by others. There were memories of Miles West ' s salute to Walt Disney with its Homecoming week that was wrapped up by a most memorable Homecoming Dance — " Cinderella ' s Ball ' Other memories included the Turnabout Dance, Spring Activities Week, the frosh- Soph Mixer, great times spent at Miles West sporting events, and participation in athletics, clubs and other extra-curricular activities. The most special memories of all, however, belong to the seniors as May brought them Prom and June brought them graduation and a full four years to look back upon and smile. The year saw all of West ' s students working hard to accomplish their respec¬ tive goals and gaining great knowledge and experience along the way. Per¬ haps their single greatest gain, though, was the collection of memories that they had gathered along the way — memories that would always be there to help maintain the balance. DALE SHERMAM Closing Section 297 Balancing the book A Question of Balance, Spectrum 86- 87. This year, more than ever, saw the idea of balance put into ac¬ tion. Everyone worked hard to make the deadlines. This often meant stay¬ ing up late, working after school, and for the editors, some Saturday nights at home. But Spectrum could not pos¬ sibly have been completed without the effort of the whole staff. The deadlines were met, and on March 2 all the editors breathed a sigh of relief. Happenings editor, Jill Hedrich, finally could stop searching for more pictures to fill her pages. (Where did those blood drive pictures go?) Mark Gussin, editor of the senior and academic sections finished his last " goofy " layout. Underclass and Clubs editors Estelle Hikolakakis, Pat¬ ty Tzortzis, and Rachel Greenspan fin¬ ished their last of a total of 80 pages. This trio did a great job in their first year as editors. Gina Lee once again turned in a super sports section. (1 guess the spring sports pages really couldn ' t be turned in before March). Photography editor, Elliott Baretz, made sure all the pictures were taken. He managed to fulfill his position as editor, even with the hardship of tak¬ ing over in the middle of the year. Thanks especially to: James Van- Osdol, who cheerfully volunteered to do the ever-so-tedious index; artists Fernando Fen and Hick Hafpliotis, for all the balances and question marks throughout the book; and Dale Sher¬ man, who helped tremendously with his creativity in captions, copy, and headlines. 1 believe 1 speak for all the editors when 1 give my grateful thanks to the staff members who turned in copy on time, " typed and approved! " Also, thanks to the training class for doing extra stories, and captions by the dozen. Sharon Krone proofed an endless supply of copy. Our Josten ' s Repre¬ sentative, Dennis Eder, answered all my questions; literally, from the first page to the last. And, of course, my very special thanks to Mr. Orr for help¬ ing with the many details I didn ' t even know existed. It was his encourage¬ ment and support that helped every¬ one through the year. Sincerely, Leah Seef Editor-in-Chief Editor-in-chief Leah Seef and special events edi¬ tor Jill hedrich discuss pictures for a section with photographer Helaine Miller. " Double-take, " says photography editor Elliott Baretz as Spectrum photographer David Zazra and another photographer take each other ' s pictures. Senior Devra Resnick studies the 1984 year¬ book intently. She marvels at the senior sec¬ tion, nothing especially the pictures of the sen¬ ior boys. 298 Thank You " Kicking back ' in the director s chair as the brainstorming session pours, adviser Jerome Orr adds his own inimitable input. Brainstorming is a vital process to the yearbook ' s production. Busy at work, junior Jeannine DiModica takes time to smile for a picture. It is her type of dedication that everyone appreciates when rushing to meet a dead¬ line.
