Niles Township High School ] West Division Senior Amy Fullett tests her strength after school in the fitness room. Daily workouts bring her closer and closer to her goals. Title 1 The Varsity cheerleaders join hands in celebrating a magnifi¬ cent Indian victory. Hours of practice were dedicated by the cheerleaders to make their ex¬ cellent performances possible. Another exceptional pass is acknowledged by Midnight Rider members Lynn Pappas. Estelle Nikolakakis. Ivy Kron, and Stacy Lutz. Junior Mid¬ night Riders enjoy their first year of being on the club. As senior year approaches, college pressures become more demanding than ever. Ramel Failma and Craig Gramatis listen attentively to what is expected from them by the colleges of their choice. 2 Checking In Clever jailbird Lori Utanoff chains herself to Art Hortua and throws away the keys. Halloween brings about many distinct and startling ideas among students. Senior class members take a field trip to the well-known Ed Debevics in downtown Chicago. Field trips offer a learning experience, as well as a change of pace, to everyday school life. throughout a student’s four high school years. Senior Caryn Berk and date happily share one of Many special moments are experienced those special moments at the 1987 Homecom¬ ing Ball. Checking In 3 Karyn Elliott, one of the ten nominees for Homecoming Queen, and Craig Gramatis, nomi¬ nee for King, enjoy a pleasant ride down Oakton street during the parade. Many clubs also took part in the parade with creative multicolored floats. 4 Checking In Checking In Early every weekday morning, the tranquil, undis¬ turbed halls of NiWeHi un¬ dergo a remote transforma¬ tion. Students begin to pile into the building by the doz¬ ens, and tranquility is sud¬ denly replaced by an explo¬ sion of ear-piercing voices. “Checking In” has become a daily ritual of these high school students. It acknowl¬ edges the start of another challenging school day. Students riding the school bus usually arrive first, thus enjoying a full 30 minute free time. They await the appear¬ ance of their buses at var¬ ious stops throughout Lin- colnwood, Morton Grove, Niles, and Skokie. More for¬ tunate students, normally upperclassmen, have the privilege of driving to school. Students prefer to drive rather than take the bus be¬ cause it means an extra half hour of sleep and a later de¬ parture from home. Never¬ theless, even driving has its disadvantages. Arriving at school later often means searching for a parking space, and sometimes walk¬ ing from the far end of the lot in bad weather. Once inside the building, the majority of students lounge in the cafeteria. A manifold of loud, chattering voices echo throughout the cafeteria, Oakton Lobby, and hallways. Others prefer a more serene environment, choosing the library or re¬ source centers to complete homework. An overabun¬ dance of students wait for their turn in front of the overcrowded bathroom mir¬ rors, and the pounding of basketballs vibrate through¬ out the contest gym. Finally, the 7:30 bell sounds. The previously crowded hallways are sud¬ denly empty and peaceful. Only the familiar sound of the P.A. announcements can be heard. Another school day has begun. A smile of satisfaction appears on senior Jinjer Brody’s face as she completes a perfectly coordinated routine. As usual, the pom pon girls use creativity and skill¬ ful moves to impress their audience. Checking In 5 Along with the high ranked status of ’’the senior class” comes the privilege of being nominated to Homecoming court. King and Queen nominees anxiously await the results of the election. Junior Calvin Ramseyer enjoys the excess attention he receives after his unfortunate injury. Close friends and classmates take time out of their schedules to comfort him. Checking Up On Vocabulary Any intelligent student at Niles West knows the impor¬ tance of a well developed vo¬ cabulary. No matter what class a student takes, vo¬ cabulary always plays a part. Vocabulary can even help a student relate to both past events, and new exper¬ iences. Every high school student should know these few terms: Freshman (fesh men), 1. Undermostclassman. 2. A student who buys elevator passes. 3. A student who looks for homeroom grade on his report card. 4. Some¬ one who brings home every One, two, three, four, .. Pom pon members Monica Uhm and Kelly Cordes contribute ideas for a new routine while trying to keep count of the one’s they have already learned. book and studies them vi¬ gorously, even though homework wasn’t assigned. 5. A student who wanders aimlessly. Sophomore (sof a mor), 1. Underclassman. 2. A stu¬ dent who thinks he knows what he is doing, but doesn’t. 3. A student who rules the busses since ju¬ niors and seniors don’t take them. Junior (jUn yar), 1. Up¬ perclassman. 2. A student who realizes college is around the corner. 3. A vic¬ tim of the ACT and SAT. Senior (sen yar), 1. Up- permostclassman. 2. A stu¬ dent who knows what to do yet prefers not to do it. 3. One whose main function is laziness. 4. A student who knows, loves, and anxiously waits for David Letterman to come on. 5. A student who suffers from senioritis. Senioritis (sen yar itis), 1. The incurable disease of de¬ siring to graduate from high school without working. 2. Disease can affect a senior only 3. symptoms include: laziness, boredom, lack of sleep, and carelessness. Varsity football players Brian Buehling and Pablo Blanco receive explosive cheers from a rowdy audience. With that boost of confidence, players feel more secure about the upcoming game. Junior Jenny Duda is deeply touched by a compliment she has just received from a friend. Sometimes a few simple words from others can brighten up a student’s day. As Indian fans watch attentively from the bleachers, the Varsity football team prepares for another clever play. Daily practice is required of team members throughout the season. 6 Checking In Mobs of excited students support the Indians as they advance to another victory. School sporting events prove to be popular among NiWeHi students, and usually result in an abundance of attendants. Sophomore punkers Denise Panoutsos and Lilliana Engel discuss how they obtain their lovely hair color. Many strange and unusual sights haunt the hallways on Halloween. Suspense finally comes to an end as the Homecoming King and Queen are announced. Seniors Joy Grossberg and Anthony Irpino enjoy their reign of King and Queen. Checking In 7 Oral reports are often required of students in many classes. Arthur Khamis and James Lee listen attentively as Tim Ledwon reads his paper to the class. Seniors Regardless of how diverse each individual of the class of, ’88 was, they all shared one common trait — they were finally SENIORS!!! Col¬ lege applications flooded the desks of these students, and frequent visits with their counselors occurred. This was the exciting time they had patiently waited for. The discovery of the college they would be attending highlight¬ ed the entire year. Other special moments added pleasure and enjoy¬ ment to senior life. This time more than ever students were certain to attend events such as the Home¬ coming dance, football games, Turnabout, and prom, knowing that this would be their final opportu¬ nity. Seniors focused their at¬ tention upon possibilities for the future. Besides college, various other options were available. The Armed Forces made frequent visits and talked with interested stu¬ dents. Others chose the world of work as their future by searching for full-time 0 jobs. Seniors made their final year at West a memorable one by taking part in the stu¬ dent government, school sports, organizations, and plays. They were definitely a rowdy bunch, always making themselves known at school assemblies as they chanted loudly, “Senior! Seniors!” Senior Jeannine DiModica and fellow classmate catch up on the latest West Word news. Students look forward to reading the school newspaper when it is distributed on Wednesdays. Gina Bravos and Ken Munic are stunned by the gossip they hear from a classmate. Students find some free time in their schedules to spend with friends. 8 Division-Seniors Let’s hear it for the senior! Pablo Blanco participates in the excitement at the Homecoming Pep Assembly. Division-Seniors 9 Indians Rock The House Enthusiasm rocked the hallways, as school spirit erupt¬ ed throughout NiWeHi! The feelings of suspense and ex¬ citement roared in the gymnasium during pep assem¬ blies. Friends and enemies alike forgot their differences and set out for a common goal, to cheer out teams to victory. The feelings of unity and enthusiasm were evident as the flocks of student crammed into the gymnasium. Ex¬ plosions of red and white bodies filled the once empty bleachers. Fans yelled, screamed, and of course, chanted the school spirit songs. School spirit was not only shown at the pep assemblies, but throughout the entire week leading up to the games. The Midnight Riders displayed much school spirit throughout the season. They went on toilet paper fren¬ zies at varsity athletes ' houses to inspire positive winning attitudes. Homecoming week arrived, bringing with it mobs of psyched Indians. Hundreds of painted students went on a spirit warpath to express their enthusiasm. Activites for the week consisted of dress up days which involved class levels wearing different colors and unusual styles of dress attire, contests for the best toga, greatest putting ability in golf, and the quick football uniform change contest. These were all held to boost spirit and morale. The dedi¬ cation to school spirit will never die in the hearts of our true-blue, red and white Indians. n Senior Craig Gramatis finds the English Resource Center the ideal place for some last minute studying. Cramming half an hour before a test is extreme¬ ly popular among students, especially seniors.

Some alterations were advantageous to students, while others forced students to adjust to different lifestyles at school. Each September, students returned finding at least one aspect of their school different. Some of these changes that the seniors saw dur¬ ing their four year terms were: A NEWLY REPAVED PARKING LOT lacking speed bumps and pot¬ holes and providing a smoother ride for CARS. A CAR and numerous watches painted on the uninteresting cafeteria wall by several talented STUDENTS. THE STUDENTS’dream of a pop machine was finally realized in 1985 when one was installed in the hall outside of the cafeteria. For many students, the soda replaced school lunches and, hence, cre¬ ated disapproval among the ADMINISTRATION. THE ADMINISTRATION decided to revoke stu¬ dents’ privileges of free access in the halls after a series of senior pranks. A new system of closed hall¬ ways was incorporated decrease disorder ar CLASSROOM DISRUP¬ TION. CLASSROOM DISRUP¬ TION due to hallway noise was a key reason for in¬ stalling beige carpeting outside classrooms. Be¬ sides absorbing sound, it gave a neater appearance to THE HALLWAYS. THE HALLWAYS were painted pink to compli¬ ment the tiny bits of pink in the tiles which were covered a year later with CARPETING. While each class might claim to have seen it all, every student will always see the new come in and the old go out. Each year, our school has continued to expand in hopes of cre¬ ating a perfect environ¬ ment in which students and faculty can learn and work.

We’ve struggled through the difficult years of high school. The so called “blow-off year” has finally arrived, right? Wrong! Plenty of hard work was still ahead for students in their senior year. College preparations made up the bulk of this hard work. Many students failed to realize the importance of meeting application dead¬ lines. “Colleges filled up so quickly, this year more than any. If you missed a deadline, they wouldn’t even give you the benefit of the doubt,” comment¬ ed college counselor Frank Mustari. Besides application deadlines, colleges pres¬ sured seniors to keep grades up and to choose challenging senior year courses. Colleges com¬ monly refused to admit students who met class rank and test score re¬ quirements, but took “push-over classes” and let their grades drop dur¬ ing senior year. Students who had been accepted to a college couldn’t afford to let their grades drop either. Even after admission, the col¬ leges kept a close watch¬ ful eye on the students’ performance in the class¬ room until graduation. College deadlines and requirements definitely put a strain on seniors. To cope with these pres¬ sures, seniors had to con¬ tinue working as hard as in their previous high school years. 14 Seniors Brad Carstens Ray Castro John Catuira " uT Kyung Chang Doreen Chen Eric Chern Amy Chertow Julie Cho Junho Cho It’s a bird!

Freshmen walk unharassed. The senior section of the cafeteria is suddenly uninhabit¬ ed. Students notice that the seniors have disappeared. The big question c : Where have all the seniors ;one??? For many years, seniors ave banded together to blow off ne day of school, know as Senior . u t Day. On this day, seniors gather ‘ogether at a beach, the forest pre¬ serve, or other favorite outdoor spot to relax and party with their obnox¬ iously rowdy peers. When asked how long Senior Cut Day has existed, Mr. Albiani responded, " For as long as I An Everlasting Tradition can remember.” Controversy has arisen over this tradition, and many efforts have been made to stop this unruly be¬ havior. " I don’t see anything wrong wit h Senior Cut Day,” commented junior Estelle Nikolakakis. " Seniors deserve a day off anyway.” Howev¬ er, the deans and administration feel differently about the situation. They have tried to deter this one day strike with extra long detensions and suspensions, but the seniors always seem to prevail. " I hope Senior Cut Day will still be a tradition when I’m a senior,” stated freshman Geoff Pyter.

Senior Midnight Riders participate in all the action and spirit as the Homecoming game approaches Marc Fienberg Ross Fischoff Ann Fisher Nikki Florio Linda Fontana Angela Fortuna Angela Fuhs Amy Fullett Noel Garfinkel Steve Georgas Michael Gershbein Cindy Gesklin A Toilet Papered Town Toilet paper, heaps and heaps of soft toilet paper, was found thrown over the trees and bushes. Senior Midnight Riders scurried silently in the darkness of the night. Every evening before a football, soccer, or basketball game, a group of dedi¬ cated senior girls took a couple of hours to bake cookies, make cre¬ ative posters, and gather up rolls and rolls of toilet paper to decorate the players’ houses. These acts boosted the spirit not only of the players, but also allowed these girls to actively participate in bringing spirit to all of NiWeHi. Commenting on the spirited group are some of the senior Midnight Rid¬ ers. “Midnight Riding allowed me to get involved in school spirit. It was a great feeling the next morning when the players told us that we did a great job teepeeing their houses. It made me feel appreciated and totally psyched me up for those Friday night games,” stated Cathy Smith. Another senior rid¬ er, Amy Fullet, added, “Sometimes the players didn’t get enough credit for all their hard work. Having their houses tee-peed let them know that we cared and appreciated all of their efforts.” Even though Midnight Riding was not always compatible with the Riders’ schedules, this activity still allowed them to participate in school spirit, even after the school day ended at NiWeHi!

Students either studied hard and had limited free time, or didn’t study and depended upon pure fate and good luck. When first entering high school, most students studied strenuously to get off to a good start. Like most freshmen, books were carried home by the dozen. Sophomore year, part-time jobs and other activities became part of the daily schedule, and students’ free time was restrict¬ ed to an even greater extent. Even¬ tually, junior year arrived and stu¬ dents received the big warning. “Get your act together for college NOW!” This bit of advice was heard time and time again. Some chose to listen to these sincere words of wisdom, while others ignored them. PSAT’s and ACT’s came into the picture, and students began looking into col¬ lege and career choices. Last, but never least, senior year appeared. Signs of “senioritis” were diagnosed among members of the senior class. Some of the more common symp¬ toms included laziness, lack of inter¬ est in school work, and the down¬ right urge to party! By the end of the year, most seniors hadn’t a care in the world. They felt they deserved freedom from homework after three long tedious years of studying. This was their time to sit back, relax, and enjoy themselves for the remainder of their high school lives. They had finally fulfilled their requirements and applied to schools that they were interested in attending. All that was left to do was wait. So seniors waited for the day that they would become freshmen once again. Soon, they would have to ask themselves that same question one more time. To study or not to study, that is the question. Seniors 25 t Those Crazy Teachers Of Niles West! Many teachers have familiar sayings that their students will al¬ ways remember. Those same words, phrases, sentences and quotes are something we can all relate to. Some of these quotes will go down in the Niles West His¬ tory book. Mr. Schutt - “I’m not going to be your buddy, your pal, or your friend.” Mr. Strnad - “Teens are great!” Mr. Koch - “Join the band wagon.” Mr. Savage - “Join the track team and you’ll get an automatic A.” Mr. Hill - “Hey tigers!” Miss O’Reiley - “Come on chico.” (Erase ... erase ...) Mr. Dvorak - “5, 5, or 1.” Mr. Lucas - “This year I’m going to get real strict with you girls.” Mr. Boevers - “Oh sorry, I got sidetracked again.” Mrs. Hentz - “Alright ... I’m wrong again.” Ms. VanDorpe - “Hmmmm.” Miss Stevens - “25 extra points if you turn your outline in on Monday.” Mr. Galla - “Any comments, any questions, can you think of anything?” Mr. Orr - “This year I’m not going to yell.

Ask yourself these questions before you commit yourself. Are A.P. classes the most challenging courses at West? Can I cram for the essay test the night before? Even though the answers to these signifi¬ cant questions differ, one thing that all students agree on is the 20 hours of studying needed each week. De¬ pending on the content, A.P. classes differ. All teachers conduct their classes in varying ways, and A.P. stu¬ dents have a variety of opinions about A.P. classes: Greg Rudin “For a big guy like me, I can handle anything.” Brian Buehling “They are extremely hard, especially if you do not study.” Tom Dallianis “Not a blowoff, a lot of work. Afterall, it is a college credit it is worth.” Mike Tipesco “Challenging.” Eric Biljetina “I think it is the same as an honors class. There’s just more homework.” Eric Orsic “Basically they are pretty challenging.” Anne Liosatos “Stimulate my thinking.” Memories A congruent group, just as one. Our senior class shared lots of fun. Together we started at a time not so near, Appropriately named freshman year. Meeting each other, such an easy start, Not even a thought of our final depart. Sophomore year developed with the name, Our bunch of wise fools did not easily tame. The games and antics were part of our spirit, Too bad nobody else wanted to hear it. Junior year started off with a blast, Rockets glared, for we became upperclass. College and preparation required some thought, Without all these, most would have been caught. At last senior year was finally achieved, Along with the spirit on which we believed. Together our class laughed, cried, and learned, Obtaining the position we consistently urged. Our spirit has leapt to soaring heights, From here we will try with all our mights.

Seniors walked around empty handed, while the naive babies of the school, the “freshies,” carried around their entire locker with a schedule in clear view. They had to be cau¬ tious of their every move, because humiliation seemed to follow them everywhere, whether walking into the wrong classroom, tripping up the stairs, or dropping trays in the cafeteria. These events caused enough embarrassment to last a lifetime, or so it seemed. Sophomore year brought a relief from the pressure of freshman sta¬ tus. The worries of get¬ ting, or actually forget¬ ting, how to get to the | gym had disappeared. Horray! The excitement I of being an upperclass¬ man came junior year when they were finally seated on the lower level for pep assemblies, re¬ ceived driver’s licenses, and became part of varsi¬ ty teams. As juniors, they began to think about post high school plans. Seniors at last, they had made it to the top! They didn’t have anyone to look up to anymore, just younger people to I look at and impress with) their new superiority. Seniors not only had the chance to feel “cool” this year, but also finally had to decide on the college they would be attending.

I ► r Wild ' iV Crazy Weekends Partying, going to flicks, and cruis¬ ing is how we, the seniors, spent our weekends. Even though we couldn’t always find a happenin’ spot, we al¬ ways managed to find a way to have a fine time. Not everyone hung out with the same people, but within crowds. The more mellow student found himself more content just studying at home or simply relaxing. However, the majority of students found themselves searching for something new and exciting to do. Seniors felt that their weekends had changed entirely since their fresh¬ man year. Most say that they now have more freedom. The following list gives an idea of how the class of ' 88 spent their weekends. Julie Wickell ... “I studied and went to church ... I think.” Frank Brodsky ... “I tried to block school out of my mind.” Anonymous ... “I hung out at the Touhy McDonald’s and squeeled my tires.” Lisa Meisner ... “I went out with Gus.” Brad Carstens ... “I studied with Ducky.” Ann Liosatos ... “I caught up on sleep.” Kevin Lochner ... “I had a big tea party and watched the Smurfs.” Roderick Pintang ... “I went to dances and to parties with my friends.” Greg Rappin ... “I played in a band.” Dawn Jacobs ... “I stayed home and studied with Ducky and Brad.” Angela Hanga ... “I got chased by cops from one place to another.” Stacy Stratigakes ... “I planned a diet that would start on Monday.” John Tsau Ari Turetzky Alek Tziortzis Monica Uhm Ann Marie Valenti Lalaine Valignota Helen Vayzman Charlotte Vopal Angie Waggoner Patrick Warden Michelle Weberman Jennifer Weiss Seniors 41 Farewell To High School Friendships People come and people go, It happens every day. And though good-bye is such a simple word, I find it hard to say. Our friendships in these past four years, I’ve cherished from the start. Although we’re going our separate ways, We’ll still be close at heart. As I sadly watch you leaving me, I ' ll try hard not to cry. Because this isn’t the only time, I’ll have to say good-bye.

Studying together often helps students to accomplish more work in less time. Juniors Upperclassmen at last! Unfortunately, juniors found that being upperclassmen wasn’t as glamorous as it had once seemed. Of course junior year brought about many special privileges. Driv¬ ing to school rather than tak ing the bus was one exciting happening. Sitting on the main floor during assem blies. taking part in varsity sports, becoming a Midnight Rider, and attending prom also provided enjoyment for juniors. However, junior year also brought about more pres¬ sure and stress than ever be¬ fore. Preparation for college began with PSAT. SAT. and ACT tests. Class rank sud denly became an important matter To some juniors, this was a pleasant surprise; to others, a maior disappoint¬ ment Upperclassmen learned that scores from the tests, along with their class rank, would almost solely de termine admission to col¬ leges. Challenging classes such as U S. History, chem¬ istry. and American Litera¬ ture appeared as part of ju mors’ daily schedules. As the workload increased, juniors had to find time somewhere in their busy days to concen¬ trate more heavily on their classes. Part time jobs be came a desire of many ju niors who wished to pur¬ chase their own car. insur¬ ance. or simply have extra spending money. Responsi bility came along with the status of being upperclass¬ men. thus transforming na ive students into capable adults. Not another application! Marni Pierini takes full advantage of all the col¬ leges present at College Night while Shannon Crowly waits, rather impa¬ tiently. U.S. History is one of the coarses required of juniors. This class studies diligently knowing that the Constitution test is on its way. Division-Juniors All students need to take a break from their classes at one moment or another. Angelo Michaels finds time to relax be¬ fore hurrying off to his next class. Division-Juniors 45 Prom Preparations Picture a lovely June evening. Imag¬ ine a fancy banquet hall where stream¬ ers drop from the ceiling and brightly colored roses decorate the tables sur¬ rounding a magnificent dance floor. Upon this floor a crowd of Juniors and Seniors dance to a seven piece orches¬ tra and have the time of their lives at Prom. Now picture a group of dedicated Ju¬ nior Class Cabinet members pondering a theme, choosing the favors and ar¬ ranging decorations for the Prom. These Juniors, along with the Sponsor, Mrs. Horwitz, create the glitter of Prom. The responsibilities of the cabi¬ net include choosing the location, audi¬ tioning the band, and selecting the ex¬ act colors and styles of the bids and favors. Students may ask why the Juniors, rather than the Seniors, arrange Prom. Cabinet member. Dawn Rugendorf ex¬ plains, ‘ ' It’s like a present to the Sen¬ iors or a farewell party. By the time May comes along, Seniors are getting set for graduation and don’t want all the responsibility of having to create their own Prom.” Junior Class Cabinet members spend much of their first semester planning bake sales and card sales to increase the treasury so that by sec¬ ond semester, they can focus all their attention on Prom. When the streamers come down and the last tables are cleared, the glitter of Prom Night slowly turns into a mem¬ ory. But, the next year’s Junior Class Cabinet will soon busy themselves with the plans and preparations of the next “Magical Night”.

College Spirit Mindy Grossberg, Ali Kwon, and Christina Gabriel put their heads together during yearbook class for some intelligent story ideas. Teamwork and cooperation are necessities when working on the staff. Taking a quick glance around the hallways, Niles West students might wonder if they are attending high school or one of the many colleges in the nation. A great number of students continue to wear sweatshirts, T-shirts, and sweatpants with college logos printed across their chests (and some¬ times their behinds)! These logos in¬ clude various colleges and universities such as Harvard, Arizona State, or Uni¬ versity of Michigan. Frequently during the weekends, many NiWeHi students flock to the uni¬ versities of Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa, among others, to buy out the local bookstore’s supply of clothing, thus filling their empty closets back home. This habit may become ex¬ tremely expensive for mom, but as ju¬ nior Sundy Thompson states, “They are worth every penny.” Most of the apparel comes from midwestern schools since many of the brothers and sisters of students attend these col¬ leges and bring home wearable pre¬ sents. While walking down the hall, students should take notice of this popular craze and try to confirm if they really do at¬ tend Niles West or some elite college.

A group of juniors find a few minutes to settle a minor disagreement. 52 Juniors Pressures, Hardships, Burdens Headaches, hand cramps, and late night studying quali¬ fy as a few of the hardships many students go through in their junior year. The pres¬ sures of bringing up class rank, taking SAT and ACT’s, and urging from parents and counselors to look at col¬ leges would make any junior want to pull up the covers and go back to sleep every morning. Junior year puts a burden on a student academically, but also provides upper¬ classmen with the best year socially because most indivi¬ duals obtain their licenses to cruise around on Friday and Saturday nights with their friends, finally getting into the long awaited senior par¬ ties and being eligible to at¬ tend prom. Along with the many bur¬ dens and hardships junior year brings, it equally bal¬ ances with the social activi¬ ties that the upperclassmen qualify for.

Slowly rising out of bed, Joe, the typical NiWeHi student, stumbles across the dark shadowy hallways to the shower when a thought jumps his mind: TEST, or more accurately, re¬ morse for forgetting to study for a test. At 7:00 a.m. Joe hurriedly dresses, with suds still in his hair and stubble on his cheeks and chin. While running down the stairs, eating breakfast, and even proceeding to the bus stop, Joe tries to absorb the material from his previously untouched book for his third period class. Purposely missing the first two classes of the day. he tries to cram more information into his head for the test, and as a result, receives two more hours of detention. Arriving for the dreaded test, Joe hears his teacher announce that the test will not be administered until a later date. At this point, Joe, ready for a doctor, or at least a pass to the nurse, hears a high- pitched ring interrupting his nervous breakdown. The scream of his alarm clock causes Joe to bolt straight up in bed as he realizes that this fiasco has only occurred in an extremely bad dream. Hoping that he will gain the final point needed to win. Calvin Ramseyer concentrates on his serve. Tennis was one of the many options available to students in gym classes.

Ah, junior year! The title of “under¬ classmen” has finally vanished. Never¬ theless, not a day goes by that juniors don’t look back on their rise from naive freshmen to the exalted rank of upper¬ classmen. Juniors often reminisce about the time, just a few years ago. when they used to: get up an hour earlier to get a good seat on the bus. carry books. dread getting a dean’s slip. wait their turn in the cafeteria line, listen to the announcements. color coordinate clothes a week in ad¬ vance. raise their hands to answer a ques¬ tion. study two nights ahead for that Peo¬ ple and Their Cultures test. go prepared to class. get excited when acknowledged by an upperclassmen. study in study hall. look up to seniors. pray for junior year to come so they could get rid of the “underclassmen” title. Reflecting upon freshman and soph¬ omore years, upperclassmen remem¬ ber the foolish things they did. But even upperclassmen at some time could not wait for their freshman and sophomore years to be over. Having reached this status, they now cherish many great memories.

During this year, planning for the future and setting goals for life, serve a major role. Counselors and teachers warn students, “Junior year remains as your year to shine.” Two great ways to sparkle are acing admissions tests and improving class status through grades. Ad¬ mittance to the desired col¬ lege, or any college at all, de¬ pends upon these two as¬ pects. Tests and grades weigh heavily on juniors toward the end of the year when la¬ ziness starts to set in. During this same period, with ACT and SAT testing and class ranks released, students feel a great deal of pressure. Two or three points on the ACT can mean the differ¬ ence between a Big 10 and a junior college, and two or three places on the class rank list can place a student in the top third or top quar¬ ter of the class. All of the pressures of junior year plus the trials and tribulations of taking college testing and achieving good grades make junior year a rough exper¬ ience. Although junior year chal¬ lenges students, most see this time as a surmountable obstacle because their fu¬ ture depends upon their ac¬ complishments during this critical year. 58 Juniors Junior and senior girls listen to instructions from their teacher before attempt¬ ing to use the equipment.

No wonder the hallways were so emplyl Juniors 59 Meredith Holt becomes extremely nervous when she realizes that her homework has not been completed. Luckily her friends are willing to help her get it done. Sophomores Sophomores returned to school, cool and confi¬ dent. No longer would they have to check the numbers and the arrows on the walls to see which way their next class was. No more getting hit by pennies, buying bogus elevator passes, or having “freshie” yelled at them as they walked through the halls. The torture was finally over, and privileges such as open campus and driver’s ed had arrived. Selecting coarses seemed easier because a wider variety was made available. The majority of sophomores produced schedules consisting of classes such as geometry, biology, and Western Civilization, among many others. Fortunate sopho¬ mores who met the re¬ quirements of a specific cut-off date were able to begin driver’s ed, while others were forced to ei¬ ther wait until junior year of take private lessons. The only remaining di- lema for sophomores was the fact that they were still considered under¬ classmen. However, re¬ ceiving the title of upper¬ classmen gave them something to look for¬ ward to, for they knew that it didn’t lie very far ahead. ' Hi. Sophomores find that making friends becomes easier and easier as the years progress.

All class levels participated in the elections and chose Joy Grossberg and Anthony Irpino. The Real Thing They entered their assigned rooms, not fully aware of the task being undertaken. As they sat down and checked in, the tension grew. Then they received their test booklets and answer sheets. While taking out their 2 pencils, sopho¬ mores listened to the instructor explain the directions for taking the PACT. Most students hadn’t anticipated the level of intensity for the test. The examination lasted three hours, and began with ques¬ tions pertaining to the student’s personal background and study habits. The test then progressed to the harder ques¬ tions, which dealt with English, Math, Reading Comprehen¬ sion, and Science. As the hours passed, students felt drained. “The test was so long that by the time I reached the last part, my mind was like a mashed potato,” said Karin Much. Some spent most of their time rereading the informa¬ tion given, while others randomly filled in ovals. After completing the PACT, sophomores had strong feel¬ ings about the changes they would like to see in the test. According to Yvonne Barazi, “They should have split it into two separate tests, or at least had five minute breaks be¬ tween each part.” Elizabeth Holden added, “They should consider that just sophomores are taking the test and not make some of the areas, such as the science, so difficult.” Marc Slutzky echoed the sentiments of many sophomores when he said, “They should eliminate the ‘personality’ ques¬ tions, which are pointless.” Nevertheless, as juniors, these same students must face this challenge again, but then the test will really count.

Days Of Glory Jimmy Johnson squirms in his seat anxiously watching the clock in anticipation of one thing — the weekend. A time for rest and relaxation, the weekend serves as two days of cherished freedom from the everyday drudgeries of school. Many students believe they can only survive five consecutive school days by knowing that they are sandwiched between the crusts of life. According to Ju¬ nior Niki Antonakos, “On every Monday morning, I begin the countdown to the weekend. Being in school five days out of seven, those two free days are absolute paradise.” Actually, the school week consists of only three days: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Monday, also known as the day after the weekend, can be better described as a day of gloom, made bearable by remembrance of the days before. Offsetting the gloom of Monday and some¬ how balancing it, comes Friday. Also recognized as the day before the weekend, Friday means a day of cheerful anticipation for the days to come. Generally, the weekend serves as a time to indulge in the advantages of going to sleep late and waking up a half day later than usual. The other half day provides time to ponder idle thoughts or catch-up on homework neglected throughout the week. Frequently, students find them¬ selves glancing at the clock and calculating what class they are missing at the moment. For most student, the escape of the weekend can’t come soon enough, or last long enough. Every time the tension of school overwhelms students who think they can’t go on, the knowledge that a weekend will come gives them the strength needed to survive. Sophs Get New Respect After surviving the grueling journey through freshman year, the sophomores find themselves in possession of a new status. Instead of occupying the lowest rank in the school, they have gained control of the low-but-higher-than- freshmen status. Consequently they can walk confidently through the halls, knowing no one will mutter “freshmen” behind their back and get away with it. The sophomores also receive the privilege of cutting in front of the freshmen in the lunch line. At the “Freshmen-Sophomore Mixer,” a social given to welcome freshmen, the sophomores like to try out their newfound “sophomoric powers” and practice being able to push the freshmen around after having been the “pu- shees.” Aside from the mixer, other events and activities let the sophomores show their true colors. At pep assemblies, the sophomores join forces with the juniors and seniors in chanting “go home freshmen,” and during Homecoming week the sophomores readily challenge any class to one of the games held during lunch mods because their school spirit has increased 100% since the year before. Even though the sophomores have to respect their el¬ ders, the juniors and seniors, they earn respect and flaunt their new status by playfully teasing the freshmen.

Sophomores 67 Jenny Jo Betsy Jordan Joan Jovero Luljeta Jusufi Holly Kahn Karrie Karahalios Craig Karas Everlasting Legends Flinging pennies at freshmen .... the marketing of “offi¬ cial” freshmen elevator passes .... thrusting freshmen into lockers .... or .... perhaps starting rumors about promi¬ nent teachers. These fascinating legends lurked in the halls of Niles West throughout the year. Passed from generation to the next, with new ones created every year, these myths appear indestructable. Seniors employed these myths to frighten underclassmen and prepare them for the years ahead. To upperclassmen, these myths provided something to look forward to and brought humor into the class when these tales appeared to have some truth. Junior Beatrise Revelins, on her experiences as a fresh¬ man, commented, “I knew they were totally false because students of previous graduating classes told me the truth.” Many times these myths appeared fabricated and ridicu¬ lous in the cold light of reality. Originated in spite or just out of humor, they still prove popular among students. Making up a new tale, while explaining how they originated, junior Donna Wezio explains, “I think it was provoked by Nancy Reagan .... No .... perhaps Satan .... then it just became convenient. Isn’t that special?” In any case, for the future arrivals to Niles West these myths continue to be a tradition. So ... underclassmen, watch out! . .. Because of the uncertainty about the truth of these legends, you’d better play it safe and believe them! During the day. students don’t have a lot of time to keep up on the latest news.

At 7:30, students return to the tedious world of school work and exams. In homeroom, probably the hardest part of the day to face because it’s so early, students struggle to listen to the daily announce¬ ments half awake. Students still hear their ears ringing from the concert they attended Saturday night. “I’m lucky if I get to my classes on time on Monday mornings. When I do I end up falling asleep ' states junior Danielle Singer. As lunch time approaches, students view the new week with more optimism because the day is half through. “I look forward to lunch on Mondays because it gives me a much needed break, " says Senior Ann Valenti. As the difficult challenge of surviving Mondays comes to an end at 2:40 many students have defeated the ever-so dreaded Monday morning blues. Sophomore Dana Mohrlein attempts to concentrate on school work after a fun-filled weekend. Monday mornings are usually extremely hectic days. 72 Sophomores Victor Sagalovsky Dimitra Saltouros Ethelind Sangalang Timothy Sauerman Jacqueline Schauwecker Dan Schnaitmann Bradford Schoknecht Marla Schrager April Sebastian Joan Sebastian Dina Seung Cathryn Shemroske Steven Shimanski Benjamin Siegel Anna Silvio Sophomores 73 Discipline Shock “You’re busted.” Whether they liked it or not, many freshmen, unaccustomed to much discipline at their junior highs, may very well have been greeted with this statement within only a few weeks of their entering school. Freshmen most often complained about the lack of the benefit of the doubt extended to them by teachers when they lacked knowledge of the rules. Junior Scott Toban stated, “During one of the first weeks of school, I arrived a minute late. Thinking that late is late, I stopped at my locker before going to homeroom. When I showed up, I couldn’t believe I had been given a detention for being over five minutes late.” Regarding the intensity of change between junior high and high school rules, Mr. Zorn stated. “I teach eighth grade in my spare time, and I am often forced to remind my students that they had better prepare themselves for the transition to high school. Their behavior is often far below par.” Cer¬ tainly some pains must have been taken by freshmen to adjust their habits to high school rules. The problem of adjustment to the detention, mods, and closed hall system for freshmen was universal, yet hardly serious. More than anything else the change requires the student to adapt himself to a new and more demanding set of regulations, definitely an educational experience of sorts. Consequently, students should not have look upon this ex¬ perience as something awful, but rather as an initiation into high school. Exchanging notes for Geometry class are sophomores Jin Kim and Steve Rudin. Students often turn to friends for extra help.

Tye-died shirts and fancy beaded necklaces were among the many types of dress at this “Return to Woodstock bash. Sophomores 75 As early as the first day of school, freshmen find that different class levels are confined to specific areas of the cafeteria. Freshmen eventually become accus¬ tomed to such rituals, knowing that one day their turn to sit in the senior section of the cafeteria will arrive. Freshmen Dozens after dozens of! frightened, yet eager fresh¬ man faces scanned the unfa¬ miliar hallways of Niles West. Incoming students were con¬ fronted with new faces, un¬ accustomed sounds, and a terrible case of the “high, school jitters.” The very first thing that freshmen learned in high ; school was that it is an en¬ tirely different experience from their grammar school years. More homework was I one of the many changes they discovered. Students; now had to set aside more , time for homework and studying. An increased effort was found to be a necessity; for academic success. Freshmen also found it dif¬ ficult to adapt to a larger school. Happenings such as sporting events, school plays, and of course, the ‘Freshman-Sophomore Mixer • helped students to break the ice and meet new people. As the year progressed, freshmen found themselves feeling more comfortable with the school environment rather than feeling pres¬ sured by it. Many close and intimate friendships devel¬ oped among students, and previous fears disappeared. Freshmen became accus¬ tomed to a new way of life, and the “high school jitters” slowly faded away. Gym classes are an entirely different experience for freshmen compared to the gym classes offered at their junior highs. A freshman student finds the equipment in the gymnastics room to be rather entertaining. The Frosh-Soph Mixer provides students with their first taste of high school dances. Many intimate friendships develop that are sure to last throughout high school. Division-Freshmen Freshmen Earl Worthmann and Theresa Danguilan share an intimate dance at the Frosh-Soph Mixer. The Frosh-Soph Mix¬ er is an important event for incoming students because it is their first high school dance.

Like the rest of the calls that night, it came from one of her friends calling to make plans for the forthcoming week¬ end, compare homework, or just gossip. Many students like Suzy employed the telephone to enhance both their social and academic lives. " Nearly every night, I talked on the phone about school, work, and various subjects,” claimed Jeannine DiModica. Calling a classmate on the phone remained a conve¬ nient way to obtain help with homework. Marla Schrager added, " When I didn’t un¬ derstand my assignment, I usually called one of my friends, and they were able to teach me over the phone.” While many teenagers used the phone exclusively for their own needs, many employed it for emergency purposes. When running late, students found the phone a great way to notify parents that they wouldn’t be arriving on time for their dinner or curfew. Because underclassmen lacked dri¬ ver’s licenses, they often needed to call home to en¬ sure a ride from after school activities. Since its invention in 1876, by Alexander Graham Bell, the tel ephone has be¬ come a vital part of many lives. Because of the phone’s convenience and easy access, many students relied upon it for personal, academic, and emergency purposes. By using the phone, communication was as simple as pushing seven buttons. 78 Freshmen Go Big Red! Freshman cheerleaders psyche up the crowds at another of their early morning football games, despite the cold weather and rain. Freshmen 79 Moving To The Top Clothing fashions, cars, and hair¬ styles change from year to year, unlike the ways of freshmen and sopho¬ mores. The freshies, young people with an expanding set of values, rules, and re¬ sponsibilities, now become part of something entirely new, high school. High school seems so appealing and different from grammar school, and the academics and new friendships be¬ come more exciting. The mysteries of algebra reveal themselves problem by problem, and English class explores the family feuds in Romeo and Juliet. The sophomores, a more mature group of underclassmen, begin ap¬ proaching new experiences, such as geometry and other sophomore level classes. With their new status of “non¬ freshmen,” they begin to walk down the halls with their heads held high. The worries of pennies being thrown their way no longer exist, for soon they will reach the title of “Upperclass¬ men.” The freshmen and sophomores learn and mature, growing physically and mentally during the years of being an “Underclassmen” on their way to earning the prized designation of “Up¬ perclassmen.” Freshman year is usually a time of meeting peo¬ ple and creating new friendships.

Invariably, the revised policies and student behavior seem longer and much more severe. Inappropriate be¬ havior. dress codes, parking regula¬ tions, off campus rules, and grounds for detention are always revised when students receive a new edition of the guidebook. “I don’t think it’s fair to give a student a Saturday detention simply because he she doesn’t carry his I.D.,” stated Luey DiCeasar. Most students agree that rules re¬ main necessary, but should be en¬ forced less severely. “Getting a deten¬ tion for walking in the door after 7:30 a.m. just isn’t fair,’’ pouted Toni DiMo- dica. Students would much rather prefer rules that were made by class-elected representatives to assure fairer treat¬ ment. Sophomore Matt Toarmina de¬ clared, “Students should make their own rules if they decide to follow any at all.” Extra help from a teacher is often required when students have difficulties with school work.

With eyelids half shut, still groggy from sleep (or lack of it), and tired of being dragged out of bed before the sun even rises, they endured the years at West. But being in school wasn’t as dreadful as it may have seemed. Amidst the term papers and constant exams, the happy memories some¬ times got pushed aside and forgotten. Those treasured moments of binding friend¬ ships, football games, school activities, and intel¬ lectually stimulating classes, What is the happy grin for? ? ? Freshman Elliott Malkin is glad to know that he has become the first and only male member of the Wrestlettes! Memories often became overlooked. People’s lives were too cha¬ otic and hectic to take time out for joyous recollections. But while students pounded chemical formulas and his¬ torical events into their minds, they also left a little space to save a few good memories for the future. Take heed. One chilling, gray day in the future, when high school has long since passed, a former Niles West student sitting on a park bench feeding pigeons may remember those four years spent in high school. He won’t recall the early morn¬ ings or homework overload, but instead the memories of good times and friendships.

The fire alarm sounds as NiWeHi students, taken by surprise, rush out the doors. Whether in the midst of a stimulating lecture or eating lunch, students always respond the same way. They file out the doors, wondering about the cause of the dis¬ ruption. Fire drills teach students how to re¬ spond in an emergency. In case of a real fire or bomb threat, knowing how to act could save many lives. While the classroom learning process may be halted, the emergency knowledge gained is indispensable. Sometimes, however, students pull the alarm as a prank, needlessly causing much extra expense to the school and disrupting school progress. No matter whether the alarm is genuine or false, the fire¬ men can be counted on to show up and the school must pay. In good weather, fire drills may serve as a time and place for students to socialize and enjoy the fresh air. On the other hand, in rainy or snowy weather, students would rather avoid them. Christina Gabriel summed up the atti¬ tude of most students about fire alarms, saying, “My feelings about them depend on what class I miss.” 86 Freshmen As Cross Country runners Gail Dennis and Elissa Leboy approach the finish line, the competition grows more and more intense.

Many students look forward to their late December winter vacation and April spring break because they plan trips to exotic, exciting places. Whether headed for the beach or the ski slopes, students enjoy these two breaks from the daily routine. “I just can’t wait; it’s time for a break, and I haven’t been to California for so many years,” said sophomore Jakie Katz- man anticipating her winter vacation. The two-week vacation for the winter holidays allows for many adventures with relatives. Family trips to Florida, California, Mexico, and the Caribbean, along with ski trips to western states such as Colorado and Utah are among the favorites. Cruising, a popular way to spend both vacations, gives the Ca¬ ribbean-bound a new option. Florida, a common place to visit, especially Ft. Lauderdale and Daytona Beach, await the students from Niles West who ar¬ rive in the springtime. Breaks give students a chance to re¬ ward themselves for the work they have completed and to relax and pre¬ pare for the weeks ahead.

A utility pass is often needed periods. Academics Anxious students scurried into their assigned class¬ room. As the bell sounded, silence swept over the entire room. All eyes gazed to¬ wards the front, for class had begun. Although extracurricular activities, sports, dances, and various other happen¬ ings took many hours out of students schedules, the ma¬ jority of their time was spent in classes. Academics were the most major part of a stu¬ dent’s year. For this reason, students selected specific courses that were not only appealing, but also beneficial to their future. Counselors played an important role in course selection by giving advice and guidance when needed Teachers always encour¬ aged students to strive for success. After school ses¬ sions were often provided by dedicated teachers wishing to offer additional help to their students. The greatest amount of education possible was given to students through happen¬ ings such as the Speaker of the Month program, peer counseling, field trips, and various classes. Spots such as the Oakton Street Lobby, the library, resource cen¬ ters. and study halls present¬ ed a peaceful atmosphere to study or complete home¬ work. Through the year, stu¬ dents found that their teach¬ ers were not only teachers, but also exceptional friends. A fr eshmen class gets a bit out of control when a substitute is present. Although they try, substitutes usually cannot compare to the original teacher. Mr. VanCleave prepares drivers for the next drill. Driving on the range offers students extra practice before going out on the roads. Division-Academics Mr. Carr shows his excitement now that the week is finally over. Fridays are anxiously awaited by students and teachers as well. Teens Are Great! William Apos tal- Science Jean Armour-Physical Education Finding an “exciting” class at Niles West is a difficult task. Mr. Strnads’ Biology 3-4 enjoys an excellent rat¬ ing because of the teacher’s dedication and availability to his students for extra help. Student Bob Adams, declared “When the students come for help afterschool, Mr. Strnad never turns them away. He makes them feel welcome and ex¬ claims, “Teens are great!” Mr. James Strnad makes sure that all of his students understand what he teach¬ es before moving ahead. Whether a student earns an A or D, Mr. Strand still cares about giving each the best education possible. He wants his students to succeed and feels proud when they do. “If I did not want teen¬ ager’s to do well, I would not be working here for 25 years.” exclaimed this dedicated biology teacher. Some of the highlights of Biology 3-4 include dissec¬ tion of a frog which involves examining the heartrate and finding out how long a frog’s heart remains alive. By dissecting a shark, students analyze and compare shark and human organs and their functions. Students setting up next year’s schedule should be sure to consider adding Biology 3-4 with Mr. Strnad because of the enthusiasm of the teacher and the interesting labs.

Forty minutes in Room 138. 139 or 140 spells study hall, or does it? For some students, study hall signifies bad¬ ly-needed time to complete home¬ work. For others, it means snoozing time, and for others still, it adds up to another period of noise and distrac¬ tions. Since the majority of the students wait until the last minute to finish homework of study for exams, study halls provide a vital service. “I don ' t usually do my homework at home, so I ' m glad that I have forty minutes in school when I can actually study and catch up. " comments junior Mike Hav- dala. Students may leave study hall to go to the library, a quieter study area, to research, read magazines and books, or use the computer. Some students may use the study hall time to relax. " I usually sleep in study hall, because I ' ve done everyth¬ ing at home, and I need the rest. " states junior Sharon Huang. " In the morning. I’m not fully awake yet. so I sleep during my study hall. " comments freshman Pam Dressier. For other students, though, study halls create problems and inconven¬ iences. " I don ' t like my study hall be¬ cause of the restrictions I ' m not allowed to talk with a friend, even if we have to discuss homework. " objected freshman “Tiffany Noe. Limitations in study halls usually include no talking, eating or drinking, as well as five-min- ute washroom and locker passes. Free¬ dom in study halls depends mainly upon the teachers and for some stu¬ dents. these teachers fail to add enough restrictions. Senior Amy Fan states. " The students in my stud hall make too much noise despite the teacher’s warnings. " Although for some students, study halls provide needed study and recrea¬ tion time, other students find them ei¬ ther too restrictive or too chaotic to meet their needs.

For many Seniors, college lurks just around the corner and think¬ ing about it gives some students a very scary feeling. The solution to these un¬ wanted fears may be College Prep Eng¬ lish. Especially designed for seniors who anticipate the difficulties of col¬ lege English, College Prep enables a student to experience the rigors of English 101 while still in high school. Offered for either a semester or a year, this English-credited class provides an excellent background in writing essays, translating poems, and finding criti¬ cism. " The idea is not to exempt stu¬ dents from college English, but rather to prepare them for the level of difficul¬ ty they ' ll find in reading and composi¬ tion so they will have an approach and understanding of how great literature works. " states College Prep teacher Mrs. Shapiro. Even if some students h ave difficulty, they can still benefit from this class. Senior Karen Pmtz states. " I ' m not doing very well in Col¬ lege Prep, but I think even a little bit of information about college English will help me alot. " Counselors highly rec¬ ommended College Prep for any col¬ lege-bound senior. Senior Rossini Par- ayno commented. " College Prep is definitely one of my hardest classes this year, but it will be well worth the work!” Finally, the most important point, adds senior Stephanie Gold is. " College Prep has broadened my Eng¬ lish horizons and prepared me for my college education, I feel as though I will have a great advantage over other stu¬ dents in college ' 98 An .wteriwm Ann Levinson-Science Hermma Lopez- Foreign Language Patricia Matlak- Physical Education Alex M iron-Foreign Language John Moshak-Social Studies Elizabeth Oldham- Home Economics James Olsen-Action Learning Center Gertrude O’Reilly- Foreign Language Jerome Orr-English College Prep teachers Pat Flynn and Faith Sha¬ piro share ideas for the poetry research paper for their classes College Prep attracts many sen¬ iors who plan to continue their education.

Through these modern techniques, students learn about the fields of engi¬ neering and architecture. To enhance his students’ creativity, Mr. Mel Schmidt plans a field trip each year to the Illinois institute of Technol¬ ogy where the students view the annu¬ al exhibits of student projects ranging from models of buildings to complex engineering inventions. This exper¬ ience provides information about the expectations of an engineering college. “After talking with one of the NT stu¬ dents, I don’t think I’d ever make it with all the homework involved,” stat¬ ed Ken Chmielimski. For most stu¬ dents, the field trip suggests new ideas for changes and advancements in the building industry. In addition, the trip influences some students in making ca¬ reer decisions. “The trip certainly made my mind up on two things. First, it helped me decide that I really would like to become an architect, and sec¬ ond, it made me very interested in IIT as the school I would like to attend,” explained senior Herbie Diaz. The Technical Drawing class offers much to a student, because unlike oth¬ er classes, it teaches students an occu¬ pational skill. Mr. Schmidt adds, “I have many students working for archi¬ tectural firms at the moment who have great potential for advancement within the company from the education that they received from this class alone.” David Solovy-lndividual Instruction Center Roger Stein-Director of English and Foreign Language Marjorie Stevens-Social Studies Rita Stewart-Director Of Student Services James Sweeney-English Jerry Turry-Director Of Athletics Celestine Van Dorpe-Social Studies Dorothy Wise-Business Education Peter Zorn-Foreign Language Academics 101 Harmonious Hinck A new style of openness approached District 219 with the arrival of the newly elected superintendent, John Hinck. Having previously acted as an interim superintendent while the school board tried to find a replacement for James Ercikson. He also assisted in the hiring of Kenneth Olsen as superintendent. When the board offered the position of in¬ terim superintendent to Hinck for the second time, he de¬ clined. feeling that acting as an interim superintendent could be done only once for a district. He agreed to accept a long-term contract with District 219 for three reasons. Firstly, he has always wanted to accept a long-term position. Secondly, he enjoyed working with this district and school board as an interim superinten¬ dent and felt he would be able to work with the new school board as well Lastly, he feels he has a lot to offer District 219. including “a willingness to listen, the ability to stand behind decisions, and the ability to acknowledge mistakes.” At the current time, Hinck has no specific plans for the district. He wants to take some time to study what has happened in the year and a half since he left. His long term goal: “to have everyone working together as harmonious as possible.” He anticipates having a successful term. Lois Albanese. Scheduler Phyllis Bower.

Startling enough, a teacher appears; this lucky pupil will experience home tutoring. This scenario may sound like a nightmare to most students, yet it saves the day for students who cannot attend school. If the student cannot go to school, then the school must go to the student. Dedicated teachers give homebound instruction through rain, sleet or snow so that educa¬ tion can prevail. Carrying books, tests, movies, projec¬ tors. and even science ex¬ periments, the teachers faithfully arrive at the homes of students. Each classroom recreated lecture enhances the learning experiences for that special student. These teachers realize the stu¬ dent ' s unfortunate situation and help them through a dif¬ ficult time, from experienc¬ ing the one-on-one teaching procedure, the teachers and students both gam a better understanding of each oth¬ er. Thanks to this system, students do not fall behind in their works while unable to attend school in person. Always helpful. Mrs Newcomb reaches for a box of pens.

Academics 107 Make A Difference Principal Don Ring, upon his arrangement of the program “You Made a Difference,” has recognized and distinguished students who have done something special, but wouldn’t normally be award¬ ed for it. The monthly pro¬ gram consisting of about ten to fifteen students (faculty ap¬ pearance optional) pleasanly surprised many students. In order to partake in “You Made a Difference” a faculty advisor must submit an appli¬ cation for a student stating his or her accomplishment(s). Students are honored with a certificate and breakfast with Dr. Ring. Senior Karin Orsic, one of the first participants to receive this honor claimed, “It’s a nice way to chat with Dr. Ring and to know that things I have done are appre¬ ciated.” Mr. David Lee thinks the program “handles the sit¬ uation for the kids who de¬ serve recognition but won’t be awarded anything for it during a particular school as¬ sembly.” Not many students, before this program, were able to sit down with Dr. Ring, have breakfast, and just talk. “You Made a Difference” seems to have made it’s claim and has started a tradition that will make a difference.

Food For Thought Although most teachers disapprove of eating in their classes, lucky students must sample various foods in one class- Chefs Course. In this class, students pre¬ pare foods as simple to make as pudding and as complex as a Thanksgiving banquet. Lab periods ac¬ company the classroom study of different food types. Activities in labs in¬ clude preparation, cooking, eating, and cleaning up of delicacies, all in 55 minutes. Senior Danny Gold com¬ mented. “I look forward to the labs because I discover that the foods I cook usually taste good.” Classroom lessons consist of lectures and filmstrips on the nutritional value of food, guidelines for storing and preparing food, and informa¬ tion about different food types. Teacher Barbara Chausow explained. “With the evergrowing stress on nutrition in our country, the importance of good eating is intensified. Through Chefs course, students learn how different foods aid their bo¬ dies while having fun prepar¬ ing them.” Because students may have to provide meals for themselves at one time or another, Chefs Course teaches them to prepare and enjoy the wonderful world of food. 110 Academics Enthusiastically finishing their painting of their favorite hero Superman, Rohit Patel and Laura Gunnarson add the finishing touches to their masterpiece.

Many class periods are devoted to lec¬ tures, explanations, and hands-on training. Gus Katsis, Scott Moreth, Kirk Oliver and George Langis pay close attention to the daily lesson. They know that a pop quiz is bound to come soon. Autos and Industrial Arts are very popular courses among many students, but they’re not the only ones. Computer courses, as shown by Ken Zeff, are also among the favorites. 112 Academics A Worthwhile Course In a recent T.V. commer¬ cial people say they’re not going to pay a lot for their mufflers, and after taking the elective course Auto¬ motive Mechanics, students can fix their own mufflers. Glenn Jurek and Lee Sellers teach autos, which intro¬ duces students to the funda¬ mentals of the car. The cur¬ riculum includes reading books and writing several re¬ ports. Senior Keith Kleiner stated. “Autos is a lot of fun because you can really learn a lot about cars.” In addi¬ tion. the fine facilities in¬ clude two; work labs with ex¬ cellent equipment, and peo¬ ple donate old cars to enable students to further their studies by actually working on the cars. Present and past students can bring their cars in the shop to work on after school or during their free time. Students looking for a challenging course may consider taking autos as one of their options. Classwork and hands-on experience, make autos a worthwhile course.

Throughout the semester, students work on a family tree project in which they must track down their family an- two generations ago, and gather old pictures of family members. In this unit, Mr. Bovers always stresses the importance of a camera and the senti¬ mental value a picture can have in years to come. " Unlike other classes, Family Living is a class where you learn about real life relationships and discuss how prob¬ lems should be handled,” said Howie Aronesti.

The range lesson, one of the components of the Dri¬ vers Education course, gives students the opportunity to experience and familiarize themselves with actual street driving. Situations similar to those one might come across in reality are set-up so that students will know proper procedures when confronted with them. Two experienced and trained professionals, Carl Van Cleave and George Earl, share the responsibility of conducting classroom and behind the wheel lessons. Students spend a majority of the classroom periods view¬ ing films showing real life driving situations and ways to avoid possible hazards. The students in the course consist of sophomores and juniors who meet the age re¬ quirement. Although not all schools offer a drivers edu¬ cation course. West recog¬ nizes the program as a ne¬ cessity for later life. Accord¬ ing to Van Cleave, “Drivers education trains you for something you will be doing sixty to seventy years of your life. The course pre¬ pares you for possible dan¬ gers one might come across. It teaches you to be a defensive driver which is the key to becoming a good, safe person behind the wheel.

Special Events All work and no play??? Never at Niles West! The stu¬ dent government, along with various other organizations, made certain that students’ calendars were always packed with exciting and en¬ tertaining events. The Back to School Bash started off the year with wild students celebrating their return. Homecoming high¬ lighted the calendars of both underclassmen and upper¬ classmen as they chose funky and original dress up attire satisfying a specific theme. Furthermore, the Homecoming parade, game, and dance were also includ¬ ed to spark the Indian spirit in all NiWeHi students. Other dances included Turnabout. Frosh-Soph Mixer, and of course, prom. College night proved to be a great success as the gym filled with thousands of West ! and North students. School plays seemed to draw a good crowd, while pep assemblies allowed students to go wild n’ crazy. Open House , brought parents back to school once again, only this i time not as students, and i monsters, witches, and all ! sorts of strange sights haunted the hallways during Halloween.

West doners gave a total of over 100 pints of blood. Brave Blood Doners Greatly Appreciated Stiff bodies lay every¬ where. Pale, motionless sen¬ iors had collapsed on stretchers in the once cheery Oakton Lobby. Each body was tagged as the tub¬ ing was removed from its limbs. Were these emaciat¬ ed students the unfortunate victims of senioritis? By springtime, senioritis is a strong trait among the graduating class, but these casualties were caused by professional nurses drawing blood for the annual Blood Drive, sponsored by the Na¬ tional Honor Society for Life Source. The goal of attaining 100 pints of blood was reached with ease as donors eagerly swarmed the Oak- ton Lobby to give blood. Most of the donors were senior students, but anyone fitting the age, weight, and health requirements was permitted to give blood. “I was pleasantly sur¬ prised to find out how easy it was to give blood. And con¬ trary to what I thought, I felt fine afterwards,” said Mrs. Horwitz of the blood drain¬ ing process. Donating a pint of blood was a small part of her contribution toward the success of the Blood Drive. Mrs. Horwitz along with Mr. Boevers was involved with organizing the Blood Drive. By the end of the day, not only was the sponsor’s goal fulfilled, but the donors themselves felt a sense of accomplishment. Life Source expressed their thanks to those who gave blood with twinkies and pins declaring each as a humani¬ tarian for the day. Spanish teacher Mr. Murphy shared his feeling, “It’s a wonderful thing to give blood!” Blood Drive A Niles West participant chuckles while she donates to a worthwhile cause. Many eligible students took part, and it proved to be a success. A volunteer nurse undergoes the procedure of drawing blood from a Niles West donor. Students had to weigh a certain amount in order to give blood. Blood Drive 121 Odd Couple Provides Dynamite Comedy Drama Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. Jack Klugman and Tony Randall.

Felix Ungar and his best friend, a slob. Oscar Madi¬ son. The bulk of the plot takes place after they move in with each other following Felix’s attempt to commit suicide, for his wife has thrown him out of his home, and there is an impending di¬ vorce. Every Friday evening, the two host a poker game for their friends. They are slobs like Oscar, and dirty up his apartment constantly. When Felix moves in everything changes. They cannot be messy any longer, for Felix, being the prep that he is, al¬ ways keeps the place spot¬ less. no crumbs, dust or oth¬ er slobby things. Oscar and Felix’s friends go crazy. Mur¬ ray. portrayed by Larry Mills, is a paranoid police¬ man; Vinnie, played by Joel Dalinka, a complete “nudge,”; Speed, played by David Lieb, a cigar-smoking gangster-type who has no patience; and Roy portrayed by Paul Katz, an accountant with a lust to complain about everything. A few weeks later, Felix and Oscar begin to get on each other’s nerves. To get back on their feet romanti¬ cally, Oscar asks two women who moved into the apart¬ ment on the other side of the building, the Pigeon sis¬ ters, over to their house for dinner. The sisters were por¬ trayed by Ann Fisher and Jennifer Collins. Many more escapades take place, lead¬ ing to a final battle between Felix and Oscar, which is considered some of the best comedy in American history. James Batts, English teacher at Niles West, dir¬ ects the spring play each year. He stated, “I feel I’ve chosen an excellent cast, they are hard-working, and I had a lot of fun with them. Directing the spring play is the best time of the school year for me, because I get so into it that I usually lose a lot of weight during it!!” The set was designed by Cynthia Philbin, Lee Goldberg and Peter Sharpe. The crew who built it was comprised of Niles West students from both the theatre depart¬ ment and the debate team, of which Mr. Batts is a spon¬ sor. Performances were held April 30th, May 1st and 2nd. 1987. 122 Spring Play Oscar Madison, played by David Al¬ len, has the face of victory without agony of defeat. However, Felix Hunger, played by Arthur Tiersky, relishes in his dissatisfaction. Senior Arthur Tiersky relays his troubles to fellow cast members Jennifer Collins and Ann Fisher.

Dreary, lifeless and empty stood the gymnasium, but still a sense of mystery loomed in the dregs of the stale, misty air. The clamor that arose in the next few minutes extinguished that feeling of mystery and began the Back to School Assem¬ bly. In the “Dawn’s earl y light,” choral director Mrs. Owens led the student body in the “Star Spangled Ban¬ ner.” As the anthem ended, the students imitated the waving of the flag by tossing beach balls and balloons. When this excitement set¬ tled enough for a speaker to be heard, the officers of Stu¬ dent Union and Senior Cabi¬ net pumped up the crowd by emphasizing the qualities of each class. “I ' m very proud of our stu¬ dents.” expressed Dr. Ring in his speech welcoming stu¬ dents back to school.

Jay Rosenbaum has difficul¬ ty deciding if a move halfway around the world will satisfy his educational goals. An Educational Evening For one night in the year. West served as the center of all excitement in the Chica- goland area. Cars jammed the school lots, and people packed the hallways, while helicopters landed on the front lawn. Parents and stu¬ dents were not enjoying a night’s entertainment, but rather were participating in a rare opportunity to find out about colleges and uni¬ versities across the nation. For the diverse needs of the students, College Night offered over 300 choices for post-high school planning, the largest such representa¬ tion Niles Township has pre¬ sented. These alternatives included nationally revered schools, state schools, schools for the Arts, private schools, and religiously ori¬ ented schools. Programs were also presented by the Armed Forces, the Paris American Academy from France, and our own Oakton Community College. Happy with the program of College Night, Junior Lenny Katz said, “I thought College Night was a great success from the stand¬ points of the overwhelming amount of universities at¬ tending, and the great amount of families who benefitted extremely. How¬ ever, I thought it should have lasted longer.” Junior Shirley Choi summed-up the value of Col¬ lege Night. ‘‘It’s good, be¬ cause you get a chance to talk to the college represen¬ tatives. I like that the school did this, because I got to know about colleges I didn’t know about, and for those that I had in mind, I was able to find out the require¬ ments.” 126 College Night A Niles North student checks out St. John’s college at College Night. Students from all neighboring schools were welcome to attend. With hopes of enlisting future ca¬ dets, the U.S. Air Force Academy recruitor talks to interested stu¬ dents about a future career in flight training. All facets of the U.S. military were represented at col¬ lege night. Two military recruiters take a break from talking with students from Niles West and Niles North. The Armed Forces have become ex¬ tremely popular among high school students. College Night 127 128 Relaxing after some strenuous dancing, these sophomores relate the theme of the Frosh Soph Mix¬ er. The Mixer was sponsored by the Sophomore Cabinet on Sept. 19th. As an excited Doreen Kestler boo¬ gies her way through the crowds at the annual Frosh Soph Mixer, her face genuinely expresses that she is having a wild and crazy time. Freshman Sophomore Mixer Being an underclassmen is not all that bad. These freshmen and sophomores found that out at the Frosh Soph Mixer. Dressed in tie-dyed shirts, prepared to make new friends, and catch up with the happenings of old, fresh- men and sophomores rushed into the Niles West cafeteria at 7:00 p.m. for the annual frosh-soph mixer, sponsored by the Sopho¬ more Cabinet on September 19th. The purpose of the mixer Meet Me At The Mixer! was for the more than 300 attending to attempt the nearly impossible task of meeting all the others. The theme was Wood- stock. and the common dress was the latest style of tie-dyed shirts. To liven up the party, some sopho¬ mores wore togas. Doughnuts were served as refreshments, and as a break from the dancing, the people went into the court¬ yard and chatted with old and new found friends. At 9:00 as the last chord of the evening was played, students reluctantly inched out and freshman Robin Yu commented, “The mixer should have been longer.” Many others agreed. Truly expressing the theme of The Frosh Soph mixer which was Wood- stock, Ann Pullano, Lule Jusufi, and Dana Mohrlein clad themselves in tie- dyed togas. Togas are usually a popular form of dress at the annual mixer. Freshman Sophomore Mixer 129 Specialized license plates and bumper stickers are only a few of the accessories that adorn the cars in the student parking lot. The un¬ fortunate people that don’t have transportation most often ride the school bus. Two NiWe seniors fortunate enough to have a car, Brad Car- stens and Keith Kleiner, cruise down the street. Only students with parking permits are allowed to park in the student parking lot. Transportation Cruising At The Crack Of Dawn A group of upperclassmen check out their friends new purchase - Motorcycles proved to be both ef¬ fective and popular among stu¬ dents. “Bye Mom, Gotta run!” yells a typical NiWeHi stu¬ dent as he dashes out the door to catch the bus. “See ya later, Dad!” says another as he crosses Oakton Street to school. While students come to school in a variety of ways, they all have one thing in common — they must all be in homeroom by 7:30. Whether they drive or run, the third tardy usually means a detention. The freshman dream is to drive to school senior year, leaving the house five min¬ utes before school starts. This happy thought is all that gets them through those long, cold winter mornings waiting for the bus. Did you ever wonder, though, about why those seniors often drive up before the buses even arrive? No, they aren’t crazy. It’s that mad compe¬ tition for a parking space. Only a sadder but wiser sen¬ ior can tell you the horrors of trying to run from the far end of the parking lot to homeroom in two minutes. Maybe after an experience like that you freshmen wouldn’t leave the house five minutes before school starts, either. Still, many seniors would die without their cars. Though driving is the pre¬ ferred way to go, many oth¬ er means of transportation exist. Some students live close by. Others can’t get the family car and would die before taking the bus. In ei¬ ther case, students may choose to walk to school ev¬ ery day, and the bicycle racks are often full. Those affluent students whose par¬ ents approve may even ride a scooter to school. When all else fails, stu¬ dents still shouldn’t give up hope. They can often count on parents for a last minute ride in an emergency. Still, to all who dream of driving up in a Lamborghini or a Porsche, dream on; you nev¬ er know when your dreams may come true!

A Night To JUST YOU AND I “Just You And I,” the Ju¬ nior-Senior Prom sponsored by the Junior Class Cabinet, provided prom-goers with a glamorous and memorable evening. After arriving at the elegant Hyatt Regency downtown on May 29 at 7:30 p.m., the couples be¬ gan rocking the night away on the dance floor and munching on delicious as¬ sorted appetizers. Prom King and Queen, Jeff Gassel and Jodi Isreal, were chosen from among six couples by the promgoers. Traci Dreier commented, “Choosing the Prom King and Queen was a hard deci¬ sion. All of the candidates Remember were special in their own way.” When Prom ended, cou¬ ples went out to dinner, stopping for a carriage ride or walking down Michigan Avenue. Some people even made a weekend of it, driv¬ ing to Wisconsin the next day or spending the week¬ end at a downtown hotel. The Junior Class Presi¬ dent, Benjie Malkin, conclud¬ ed “The time and effort put into making this year’s prom the best ever brought tre¬ mendous results. To see that everyone had such a great time made all of the work rewarding.” 132 Prom Benji Malkin casts his vote for prom King and Queen while Amy Chertow looks on. The winning couple.

The leaders of the graduation procession consisted of Dale Sherman, President; James Van Osdol, Vice President; Craig Keer, Secretary; Diane Smason, Treasurer; and the Valedictorian, Sou-Pan Wu. Dr. Roger D. Stein, Senior class adviser stated, “The Class of ’87 contains a num¬ ber of very special, intelli¬ gent, hardworking, and dedi¬ cated people. Niles West is sorry to see them leave, but we are certain that they will succeed in their future en¬ deavors.” After four long years of anticipation of leav¬ ing many seniors still felt that they would miss Niles West. Joe Bass stated, “As much as I couldn’t wait to graduate and get out of this so-called “Jail”, I know I will miss NiWeHi. I had some great times here.” Many graduates left Niles West with mixed feelings of nos¬ talgia for the past and antici¬ pation of the future. Some Seniors couldn’t wait to get ouf of high school, while oth¬ ers left Niles West reluctant¬ ly. Whether those students graduated Niles West feeling happy or sad, the Class of ’87 will always be a part of the school. 134 Graduation Valedictorian Nancy Goren. delivers her speech at the Graduation cere¬ monies last June.

Graduation 135 136 The senior stands come alive during the Homecoming Assembly, hoping to win the cheering contest. The Homecoming Court rise to their feet to root their fellow seniors in the cheering contest. Homecoming Assembly Videoscreens Enhance Homecoming Assembly Silence shattered as the entire school escaped from homerooms and stampeded down the halls. The gymna¬ sium rang with chaotic thun¬ der on October 5, as spot¬ lights flew around the gym and added a sense of excite¬ ment to the occasion - The Homecoming Assembly. The noise didn’t cease after the introductions had begun, and the music and vi¬ deoscreens brought forth everyone’s interest. The pompon squad made their second pep rally appear¬ ance, and the varsity cheer¬ leaders led the class levels in a cheering competition. As their faces were magni¬ fied on the videoscreens, the varsity football and soc¬ cer team ran down the cen¬ ter of the gym and accepted the wild response of the spectators. Indian mascot, Julie Wozniak, paraded the floor, performing the tradi¬ tional ritual of her Indian dance. Tension mounted, and ev¬ eryone became silent as the announcement of the nomi¬ nees for Homecoming King and Queen began. Jinjer Brody, Amy Chertow. Kelly Cordes, Karyn Elliott. Amy Fullett. Joy Grossberg, He¬ len Hart, Karin Janessa, Kar¬ in Orsic, and Stacy Stratiga- kis made their way to the main floor as they heard their names announced as the nominees for Homecom¬ ing Queen. Homecoming Assembly 137 A Ticker Tape Triumph Indians on the warpath marched out of Ni-We-Hi’s Oakton exit. The “Ticker Tape Parade” packed the streets with spirited stu¬ dents and colorful creations. The King and Queen proudly lead the Homecoming pro¬ cession followed by their court and the marching band. Thundering drums and crashing cymbols dominat¬ ed the grey October day. Blowing in the breeze, strands of toilet paper and shreds of newspaper marked the parade route. Student Union, the class cabinets, and various ethnic clubs worked together by sponsoring floats, and pro¬ moting spirit. Exploding with enthusiasm, the spirit com¬ mittees: Pom Pons, Cheer¬ leaders, and Midnight Riders lead cheers which echoed throughout the parade. The Orchestra, “noted” for its elaborate floats won first place in the traditional float competition. For the second year, Students Against Drunk Driving contributed to the festivities with their life¬ saving theme float. The ath¬ letic teams and N Club ex¬ pressed their support for the football team by participat¬ ing in the celebration. At¬ tracting the attention of spectators, police sirens es¬ corted the parade in its route through Skokie and Morton Grove. When the pa¬ rade reached its end, Indian spirit raged as the war-paint¬ ed Niles West tribe, hungry for a victory, made its way to the stadium. The Home¬ coming Parade captured the intense excitement of the students and the community as all anticipated the big game. The Niles West Orchestra shows off its first place float during the Home¬ coming Parade. Many hours of hard work by dedicated members ended with great results. Homecoming Parade The Senior Midnight Riders show their spirit while riding on their gar¬ bage truck through the parade. The Homecoming Court waves to passerby during the parade. There were five girls and five boys nomin¬ ated from the senior class. Homecoming Parade 139 Michelle Weberman. Carol Song, and their dates ham it up for the camera during the homecoming dance. More than 200 couples at¬ tended which provided for a fun evening. Excited juniors pose for a picture to remind them of Homecoming. Al¬ though the majority of the couples were juniors and seniors, there were many underclassmen there also. 140 Homecoming Dance Throwing " The” Ball Student Union scored when they “Threw The Ball” for their eager, enthusiastic fans! As couples filed in for the final Homecoming activity, they saw a gym transformed into a grand ballroom. Ball masks and brightly colored steamers lined the walls to complete the ballroom theme. Some couples boogied to the beat of “Adventures in Dining”, while others waited in line to have a photogra¬ pher take a memorable por¬ trait of them. While the band took their break, the couples chatted about dinner plans, carriage rides, and romantic prospects for the evening. Others took advantage of the hors d’ oeuvres table, which consisted of carrot sticks, vegetable dip, and miniature club sandwiches. Returning to the edge of the dance floor, the couples watched as the Queen, Joy Grossberg and King, Anth¬ ony Irpino danced to the theme from “Dirty Dancing” marking the highlight of the evening. In addition to upperclass¬ men, many freshman and sophomores attended the festivities. One underclass¬ man, Stephanie Israel, ex¬ claimed, “If all the dances at Niles West are this great, I’m in for an exciting four years!” As the ball neared its end, couples gathered their be¬ longings, found their friends, said their goodbyes, and headed for an equally excit¬ ing night on the town!

While unexpectedly playing the lead. Arthur was also the student director. 142 Musical Kevin Steele rehearses for the musical “Bye-Bye Birdie” after school. Many long hours were put in to make the show a success. A " Good Time” Production Returns When “Bye-Bye Birdie” first hit the Broadway scene in the early 1960’s, the na¬ tion greeted the show as a ‘‘good time” production with cheerful songs and an energetic cast that would keep a smile on one’s face until the night was over. Now, some twenty-seven years later, Conrad Birdie and the town of Sweet Ap¬ ple, Ohio have been reborn on the Niles West stage as the premiere production of the school year. The musical opens with Birdie, senior Matthew Winer, a rock star modeled after the late Elvis Presley, being drafted into the army. Upon hearing this, the mil¬ lions of female teenagers who love this man with a passion prepare to secede from the Union. Albert Pe¬ terson (originally to be played by junior Carl Helw- ing, whos unfortunate illness resulted in director Arthur Tiersky’s takeover of the role), Birdie’s songwriter who practically survives on his star’s career, does not know how to handle the drafting situation either. His faithful secretary, Rose Al¬ varez (senior Lisa Lasowski) comes up with a plan to send Birdie away happily while still in the hearts of girls ev¬ erywhere. Birdie will per¬ form Albert’s latest song, “One Last Kiss,” on the Ed Sullivan Show the night be¬ fore he leaves for the army. When he is finished singing he will plant one final kiss on the lips of Kim Macafee, (senior Joy Grossberg) cho¬ sen at random from a selec¬ tion of Birdie’s greatest fans. Along the way, the charac¬ ters experience fights, dis¬ agreements, and hilarious misunderstandings that lead to the happy ending. Major cast members also included junior Kirsten Gieler as Al¬ bert’s obnoxiously domin¬ eering mother; juniors David Lieb and Amy Flack as Kim’s conservative parents; senior Wendy Doyle as Kim’s sister; and junior Yuri Keegstra as Hugo Peabody, the jealous boyfriend. For the third year in a row, the student steering com¬ mittee chosen to direct this annual production decided to perform a pre-written show rather than an original story. Stated senior director Arthur Tiersky, “The shows chosen for this production in the last two years have re¬ quired an amount of thinking about strange underlying morals. This year, we all wanted a change, and ‘Bye- Bye Birdie,’ one of my all- time favorite shows, was my first choice all along.” Fun and games didn’t oc¬ cur all the time, however. Everyone on the committee believed that they cast roles extremely well, but when lead Carl Helwing had to back out, many thought di¬ saster might strike. Senior co-orchestral director Joel Dalinka related, “The last few weeks of rehearsal, I was scared that the show might not come together as well as past shows have; I am elated that I have been proven wrong! " Musica | 143 144 Back To School One Wednesday evening, October 28. at approximate¬ ly 7:30 p.m., it happened again. School commenced for the second time that day, but not for the stu¬ dents. Hundreds of parents of Niles West students swarmed the hallways to en¬ dure the obstacle course of their child’s schedule. That night was the 30th annual Open House. Open House gave parents the opportunity to personal¬ ly meet and talk to their child’s teachers. During each shortened class, par¬ ents listened to short lec¬ tures on the course curricu¬ lum and content. Curious parents could ask questions about the student’s pro¬ gress in the class or about the class itself. Unlike students, parents didn’t have to attend study halls and physical education classes. Instead they walked aimlessly around the school peeping in rooms or pro¬ ceeding to the cafeteria for refreshments and observing displays. Student represen¬ tatives of numerous clubs such as sports teams, spe¬ cial interest clubs and stu¬ dent government anxiously waited to answer parents’ questions. In addition to cafeteria displays, parents could see other exhibits on Niles West life after school situated throughout the building. The art center pre¬ sented an art demonstration and slide show in the display case. While orchesis per¬ formed in the dance studio, thespians rehearsed “Bye Bye Birdie’’ in the a udito¬ rium. Gym teachers led a formal discussion about fit¬ ness in the Gymnasium while the Board of Education spoke about the Illinois State Report Card in room 016. Cheerleaders Lena Quilici and An¬ gela Hanga take a break from as¬ sisting lost parents at the open house. Students also attended to help parents find their son’s daughter ' s classes. Open House The Niles West Concert Orchestra performs for parents attending the Open House. They played for al¬ most two hours and did not strike a wrong note all night. Parents mingle in the cafeteria dur¬ ing the Open House. Refreshments were served as the parents met with school clubs and sports.

A NiWe student bats her lashes, testing the glue to see if it really worked. 146 Halloween _ Haunted Hallways Ghosts and goblins float down the hallway while oth¬ er students walk in everyday attire. “Halloween comes but once a year and I enjoy dressing up”, said Senior Ross Fischoff who has been a dedicated Halloweener for four years. Many students enjoy dressing up, but “the students who don’t dress up are the ones who miss out”, stated Senior Brad Car- stens. Many of the students who do dress up in cos¬ tumes, trick-or-treat during the day, while others trick- or-treat well into the night. After school, students pre¬ pare for the night time fes¬ tivities. Costume parties, the most popular type of party on Halloween, require a lot of work. Lots of time also goes into the costumes which may need hours of sewing and face painting. “Bombing”, another favor¬ ite activity of some stu¬ dents, requires a heavy stock of eggs, shaving cream, and toilet paper since to achieve the objec¬ tive of “bombing” one must smother others with these materials without becoming a victim first. Is Halloween really scary? Many students would deny that they are afraid, but they won’t be seen crossing the path of a black cat, visiting a graveyard, or trick-or-treat¬ ing past midnight. Showing real school spirit, an unknown NiWe Student parades around school on Halloween. There were a variety of costumes displayed on October 31st. _ Halloween 147 Prisoners of the wicked witch in her gingerbread house are Hansel and Gretel, played by Adam Telengater and Laila Stein. “Don’t trust strangers,” is the archetypal theme of the children’s theater presenta¬ tion, “Hansel and Gretel.” This classic story of two lost young children, who come across a gingerbread house in the woods and end up prisoners of a wicked witch, succeeded greatly, bringing in full houses for the two afternoon performances and a half-full house for the Saturday show. Students from thirty-five schools came to see the show during the day-time showings. Fairy Tale Delights Audience The enthusiastic cast, headed by skillful direction of Cynthia Philbin, consisted of sophomore Adam Telen¬ gater as Hansel, junior Laila Stein as Gretel, and sopho¬ more Jennifer Collins as the Witch. Other cast members included freshmen Barbara Bouboutsis, Julie Doyle, Kel¬ ly Hogan, Davita Levin and Kim Lowenthal, sophomore Karen Guthrie, junior Carl Helwing, and senior Wendy Doyle. Describing the difficulties and pleasures of performing for young children, Telen¬ gater commented, “You have to capture them, which I think we did in the first few scenes. Then they really re¬ spond well.” Sophomore Jennifer Collins shared the delight. “Working with kids was really fun; it was great to see how they reacted.” Before the show began, an innovative skit, called Etiskit, performed by Katy Born, Joel Dalinka. Joy Grossberg, Lisa Lasowski, Matthew Winer, and Arthur Tiersky, who also wrote and directed the piece, received rave re¬ views. Etiskit showed the young children in the audi¬ ence how they should be¬ have during the perfor¬ mance talking about gum chewing, applause, and when to get up during the show. According to enthusiastic audience member sopho¬ more Nicoletta Harris, “The scenery was magnificent, the singing was superb, and the audience was truly in¬ volved.” 148 Children’s Theater Hansel and Gretel get down on their knees, hoping and wishing for a way out of the witch’s gingerbread house. Kim Lowenthal and Davita Levin put on a perfect performance for the Children’s Theater’s presentation of Hansel and Gretel. A wonderful show was the result of weeks of re¬ hearsals. Children’s Theater 150 Marc Adreani and friends enjoy the festivities of the Fiesta Bowl in Ari¬ zona. The Niles West Band was ac¬ companied by the Color Guard and the Pom pon squad. The Niles West Band participates in the Fiesta Bowl Parade on New Year ' s Eve. The band was one of many selected to perform this year in Arizona. Mike Bartholomew. Mike Spiropo- lous and Dr. Ring enjoy the celebra¬ tion in Arizona during the Fiesta Bowl. Tour West Groups Perform At Fiesta Bowl. “Attend Hut!.GO!, Parade Rest! ....... UGH!” No, this is not about going to the army, but about being a member in the marching band. The marching band, directed by William Koch, di¬ ligently worked on their marching techniques from the hot, scorching days of August to the cool, shivering nights of October, in order to prepare a show that was to be watched by millions. The occasion, the “Sunkist Fiesta Bowl Parade. " Last May, the band ac¬ cepted their invitation to play in the Fiesta Bowl, in Phoenix, Arizona on New Year’s Day, 1988. Many hours were put into making this tour a success. All of the fundraising, arranged by Mrs. Fern Katz, had to be fin¬ ished by December 1, 1987, and early deadline which meant everyone had to work fast. Also attending the festivi¬ ties were the colorguard, pom-pon, and cheerleading squads. All of this adding up to one of the largest and most expensive tours ever held. But, not to fear. As for the money, the band was lucky to once again have the support of Mrs. Fern Katz. With her complete dedica¬ tion to the band, she was able to help students nearly split in half the original cost, from $570 per person to $275 per person. She over¬ all helped the students to raise a total of $45,000. But, the money was just one of the main concerns. Now, the numerous hours had to be spent on perfecting music, marching in step, and look¬ ing their best. This was ac¬ complished under the direc¬ tion of Mr. Koch and his wife, who was also the Colorguard instructor. The tour took place from December 28th and contin¬ ued into New Year until the third of January. Due to the inclement weather on Mon¬ day, the students were forced to fly out of Chicago the following morning. The band lost many hours of practice time due to the de¬ lay, but spirits were kept up. They arrived in Phoenix that Tuesday afternoon and ev¬ eryone was anxious to get started. “We missed about fifteen hours of rehearsal, but that only made us work twice as hard in the short¬ ened time that was given to us, stated clarinet player Suzy Bohigan. The four mile parade down Central Avenue ex¬ cited everyone. “When I saw the people along the sides of the streets, it was in serious numbers, like 300,000 peo¬ ple. We’re used to marching down Oakton Street where people are there because they just happen to be,’’ commented another clari¬ net player David Steiner. This recognition and success has brought a smile not only to the band, but to the mem¬ bers of the community. “It was great to see everyone (local businesses) care whether we could go. Tour 151 Spanish Club Visits Day Care Center The Casa Central Day Care Center was filled with Niles West students as well as little children one De¬ cember afternoon. No, the students did not need super¬ vision or parental guidance, but they did feel the need to spread some holiday cheer. The day care center had been visited by the Spanish Club for a number of years, and this year’s club did not end the tradition. Sponsored by Mrs. Georgiev and Miss O’Rei lley, the Spanish Club trekked to Casa Central with about a dozen of its mem¬ bers. Careful planning went into the afternoon’s sched¬ ule, filled with all the old games learned in fourth grade. The bunny hop, for example, progressed almost to perfection, but its tricky footwork caused the stu¬ dents and friends some problems. A miniature play was enacted with hand pup¬ pets, and a little “rough- housing " occurred among some of the more aggres¬ sive boys who had eaten all their “Wheaties " that morn¬ ing. To top it all off, Presi¬ dent Eric Orsic, donned in a Santa suit with all the trim¬ mings, distributed presents to the children. Junior Ran¬ dy Feldman concluded, “Nos divertimos a Casa Cen¬ tral. " A young girl at the day care center looks warily at the NiWe Spanish Club who visited the center before the holi days. 152 Casa Central Day Care Center Eric Orsic gets mauled by the chil¬ dren at Casa Central Day Care Cen¬ ter.

Watching a lip sync contest can al¬ most be as fun as participating in one. These spectators realize this during the event, sponsored by sophomore cabinet. This participant uses a guitar to en¬ hance his performance, and maybe receive a higher score. Judges con¬ sidered originality as part of the overall score. 154 Lip Sync Starring in his second lip sync contest, senior Ted Xentaras really puts on a show for the screaming audience. Now there’s one wild rock ‘n’ roller! nra Keeping In Sync The second annual Lip Sync contest took place in NiWeHi’s auditorium on Sat¬ urday, January 9th. This event was sponsored by the Sophomore Cabinet, and once again had a very large turnout, which raised a great deal of money for their trea¬ sury. Prizes were given to the group or act that had the most originality an d best lip sync performance. The sponsor of Sophomore Cabi¬ net, Mr. Puff, stated, “I am very pleased with the tur¬ nout we had. All the kids worked hard to make it work.’’First place award was presented to Andy Bok, Richard Dubin, and Andy Browder. Lip Sync 155 Junior Beth Lichtenstein strikes a pose during one of Orchesis’s presenta¬ tions. Beth and all the other members of Orchesis put in many long hours to prefect their performance. A Late Night Show Stopper With Orchesis It’s imagination, it’s ex¬ citement, it’s creativity, it’s “Late Night with the Orche¬ sis Dance Co.’’! As the cur¬ tain opened, five dark silhou¬ ettes posed on stage. Sud¬ denly, a spotlight illuminated the stage and the dancers appeared. The audience ap¬ plauded as the opening num¬ ber commenced. The mid¬ winter show consisted of twenty-two different num¬ bers varying from jazz to bal¬ let based upon different types of music which ranged from Michael Jackson’s “Bad” to the more balletic style of “Arthur’s Theme’’. Members of the company choreographed the various dances and alumni-sponsor Gretchen Galder took charge of the overall direc¬ tion of the production. The show differed from past years in that it con¬ tained a special number for the twelve senior members leaving the company. Spon¬ sor Gretchen Glader voiced regrets about have a senior dance, saying, “I can’t stand seeing all the dancers I’ll be losing next year at one time.” Finally, the dancers each took their bows to the tune of “Dancing in the Street’’, and ran into the aisles, still dancing with the same ener¬ gy and enthusiasm that filled the show. The two hours of entertainment came to an end as the dancers conclud¬ ed their performance and the curtain closed behind them. 156 Orchesis “Late Night With the Orchesis Dance Co. concludes with a dra¬ matic pose, ending another year of hard work and determination. Orchesis members perform an¬ other of their creative dances, which are all choreographed by stu¬ dent members. Orchesis 157 158 Amy Berk.

Martin Luther King Assembly Pascale Trouillot sings to the filled auditorium Somewhere ' from the popu¬ lar movie. West Side Story. Banks Praises King When one envisions a man who fought for the equality and freedom of all people, Martin Luther King immedi¬ ately comes to mind. No other man is so universally known as the crusader of justice. King spent much of his life promoting the wel¬ fare of his people and the rights of all those whose rights had been ignored. Un¬ fortunately, few of his ac¬ complishments were recog¬ nized until after his death. On January fifteenth, West held an assembly honoring King. The guest speaker, Dr. Lacy Banks, gave an elo¬ quent address describing Martin Luther King as the true king, one who contri¬ buted greatly to the cause of his people. Unlike other kings who have come and gone. Martin Luther King made a difference in the lives of those who followed him. He gave his life fighting for a cause he believed in. Having helped his people, King died a satisfied man. Dr. Banks advised stu¬ dents to devote a few mo¬ ments thinking about King’s accomplishments in the field of human rights. Students left the assembly feeling love towards all of mankind and respect for a great man — Dr. Martin Luther King. Martin Luther King Assembly 159 Spaghetti Serenade What a better way to spend a chilly February night than to eat to the heart’s content with beautiful music playing in the background. The Niles West band, or¬ chestra, and choral groups provided over two hours of entertainment at the “Pasta and Pops” concert on Feb¬ ruary 27th. This event was sponsored by the Music Par¬ ents Association, and with cooperation from dedicated members and school facul¬ ty, the evening proved suc¬ cessful. The concert took place in the gym, thanks to Mr. Turry, the athletic direc¬ tor. Mr. Dr. Rodakavich and Dr. Ring attended and en¬ joyed the result of many hours of grueling practice. Mr. Kaitchuck, the Orches¬ tra conductor remarked, “Everyone enjoyed the per¬ formance, and the evening was very successful.” Many hours of planning took place before the even¬ ing’s festivities. Faculty and parents alike helped to posi¬ tion the tables and chairs, laid out tablecloths, orga¬ nized food display etc. Were it not for these dedicated people, the evening would not have turned out to be as complete and fulfilling as it did.

Pasta And Pops 161 Seymour, portrayed by senior Paul Katz, feeds the Audrey II for the play “Little Shop of Horrors.” Almost every day of the week was devoted by cast members in order to perfect the play. Little Shop ■ A First “LOOKOUT, HERE COMES AUDREY TWO!,” ex¬ claimed the publicity post¬ ers for this year’s musical, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. Niles West bears the distinc¬ tion of being the first high school in the Chicagoland area to secure the rights to perform this 1982 off-broad¬ way smash hit, which has delighted audiences all over the world. The story, narrated by three girls called the Ron- nettes (a parody of the six¬ ties girl group The Su- premes), centers around Seymour Krelborn, a down- on-his-luck nerd, who while working at Mushnik’s Skid Row Florists, discovers a new breed of plant life hith¬ erto unknown on this planet. He names his new discovery the Audrey Two, so he can perhaps win the affections of the girl he has a crush on, Audrey. Seymour discovers that while his plant looks in¬ credibly unusual, the Audrey Two demonstrates some disgusti ng eating habits: it will not grow unless fed hu¬ man blood! After introducing the plant to Mushnik, his boss, Seymour discovers that his plant’s unusual ap¬ pearance is doing wonders for business in the flower shop. Seymour continues to feed it blood, and finds him¬ self suddenly successful, with TV and magazine offers being presented to him. However, as the Audrey Two grows, it begins to talk and orders Seymour to feed him large quantities of blood at a time, meaning Seymour must kill people to get the plant to bring him more suc¬ cess. It then becomes a bat¬ tle between human morals and the Audrey Two’s night feedings. Theatre sponsor and di¬ rector Robert Johnson stat¬ For The West Stage ed that he had wanted to stage a production of LITTLE SHOP since he had first seen it over four years ago. ‘‘I have never been so pleased with a show as I have with this one,” stated Johnson. “The cast, crew and orches¬ tra and all my fellow direc¬ tors have done an excellent job with an extremely diffi¬ cult production. I am very pleased.” Johnson was as¬ sisted by choreographer and costumer Gretchen Glader, band director William Koch, vocal director Sheri Owens, and technical directors Lee Goldberg, Cynthia Philbin and Peter Sharpe. The light¬ ing for the show was cre¬ atively designed by Marc Schwartz. Casting was a very special aspect of this show. Many of the larger roles were “dou¬ ble cast”, meaning two peo¬ ple would hold down one role in the show. The only exceptions were Pascale Trouillot as Crystal, the lead¬ er of the Ronnettes, Arthur Tiersky as Mr. Mushnik, Sey¬ mour’s boss, Dave Lieb as Bernstein, a pushy NBC con¬ tractor, and Laura Persky as the customer. John Barba and Paul Katz portrayed Seymour, Michelle Dayan and Beth Lichtenstein char¬ acterized Audrey, the Fay Wray-like female lead, and Carl Helwing and Kevin Steele played the sadistic dentist boyfriend of Au¬ drey’s. The other Ronnettes were Laura Abrahams and Kristen Gieler as Ronette, and Joy Grossberg and Me¬ linda Hepner as Chiffon. Production dates for the show were March 9-12 of 1988. The show will be re¬ membered long after it is over by cast, crew and or¬ chestra. 162 Little Shop Of Horrors Audrey, played by Michelle Dayan, captures the attention of the packed auditorium in the closing minutes of her life.

Chris Sosnowski and George Langis are all smiles after winning first place in the Cherry Pie contest. Both of them worked together to form an edible masterpiece. Cherry Pie Contest Watch Out Sara Lee The aroma of home-made pies filled the air. On Friday, March fourth, students from Foods One and Two, and Chefs, baked some delicious pies judged by members of the faculty. Competition spent half their school day in the kitch¬ en, while the other half was spent awaiting the good news in the cafeteria. Each creation was judged on fla¬ vor, color, texture, tender¬ ness. and appearance. Final¬ ly, winners George Langis and Chris Sosnowski were pronounced the winners. Participant Dawn Jacobs stated. “Even though I didn’t win, it was fun. cause I missed a whole day of school.” Cherry Pie Contest 167 Escape To The Orient Via Turnabout That time of the year when the guys sit back and let the girls do the asking, the annual Turnabout Dance, did its job once again in granting couples good memories and a great time. “Escape To The Orient” oc¬ curred three weeks after Valentine’s Day leaving a chance for couples to cele¬ brate the 14th of February on a later date. The Student Union beautifully decorated the gym in green, black, gold, and yellow and set out a delicious buffet composed of assorted Chinese snacks and appetizers. D.J. Cary Smolenski, played the latest hits while creating an atmo¬ sphere of love for dancing all night long. Student Union Vice-Presi¬ dent Staci Stratigakis com¬ mented, “We all worked hard, but the time spent on organizing the dance paid off with a tremendous turnout.” Lori Utanoff dances to the latest hits played by D.J.

Diving competitions were held along with swim meets. Sports Unrestrained voices yelled, and cheered from the bleachers as a Niles West ' team strove for another vic¬ tory. Who provided all of this excitement? The athletes did. of course. Athletics al¬ lowed students to display , their talents whether it was in football, soccer, swim¬ ming. golf, basketball, or oth- ( er various sports. Athletes had to learn to use their time wisely in order to succeed in both sports’, and school. Having to prac¬ tice many hours a day and still keep up on homework was a difficult task. Yet it was required of athletes to sus¬ tain a fairly good grade point average in order to continue playing. “As a freshman on Cross Country. I realized how difficult it can be to han¬ dle both homework and daily practices. It was a lot of hard work, but it was worth it in the end.’’ stated freshman Elyssa Leboy. Athletes contributed ex¬ citement and pride to our school. This was evident by the large crowds which ap¬ peared to support them, even in cold and stormy. weather. Loyal Indian fans- sat upon the bleachers re¬ gardless of the weather and cheered their team on to one victory after another! Senior Art Sanchez puts all of his strength into his performance.

Varsity Discovers Sufficient System Transition describes the varsity gridders. and one of the biggest transitions from last year occured from of¬ fense to defense. Eleven fresh players entered the field as the platoon system hit Niles West. The new sys¬ tem gave the team twenty- two starters, eleven on of¬ fense and eleven on de¬ fense. Coach Richardson employed the platoon to keep players from tiring out, while allowing more partici¬ pation . The system also al¬ lowed injured players to be more easily replaced, with specialists at every position. The varsity squad adapted to the system well, despite early losses to state power¬ houses New Trier and Evan¬ ston. The Indians put it to¬ gether in game three with a solid victory over Maine East. 26-13. Although the Indians en¬ countered other rough losses, including Homecom¬ ing, the team remained hopeful and played to the fi¬ nal minute. With more play¬ ers coming out in the sum¬ mer, the platoon system will give the football program a great boost. Each year the presence of more returning players with varsity exper¬ ience and a greater number of students playing will result in a powerful Indian squad for years to come. Getting a well-deserved break is Leo Gubenko. After a long game, this break is much needed. Despite the Indians trying efforts, they unfortu¬ nately lost. 174 Football Coach Richardson shows his anger as the Niles West Indians miss a key opportunity in scoring.

White 19! Go Go! Screams the quarter back as he receives the snap from the center. Freshman year football is usually for learning of the game. Young Gridders Gain Strength “Ropes”, “Sleds”, “Reac¬ tor”, and “Chutes” devel¬ oped into dreaded vocabu¬ lary among the frosh-soph football teams. Although these apparatus required a great deal of energy while bordening on tedium, they greatly enhanced the skills of the underclass teams. The season began early each day for the sopho¬ mores and freshman with 7:30 a.m. double practice sessions that lasted until 1:00 p.m. Many valuable les¬ sons and ideals learned by the young gridders stemmed from these gruel¬ ing workouts. The sophomores opened the year winning two of their first three games. Following the Varsity coaching strate¬ gy, coaches Murphy and Schmidt employed the pla¬ toon system to the fullest. The sophomores, already acquainted with the system, will enter junior year as wel¬ come additions. Besides getting a taste of the game, the freshmen learned to enjoy the compe¬ tition and camaraderie of high school football. The combination of new talent and hard work in the underclass level makes the future look good for Niles West. A continued level of improvement from the first years can only mean a more successful Indian football team. Front Row: Derek Brown. Keef Weinstien. Seong Choi. Steve Shamanski. Brad Freeman.

Tough Season Provides Struggle Most students know vol¬ leyball as just a game to play on the beach or at a picnic, but for the girls who make up the Niles West Volleyball Team, volleyball holds the ti¬ tle of most important sport. The Niles West Varsity Vol¬ leyball Team struggled through a tough season with a six and thirteen record, de¬ spite the fact that co-cap- tains Sarah Kim and Karin Janessa and members Kim McAllister, Sandy Stergious and Kelli Lochner returned from the previous season with hopes of a good year. “During the early and mid¬ season we didn’t play well and had trouble getting mo¬ tivated, but towards the end of the season we started to play up to our potential.” commented Kim McAllister. Victories over Niles North at home on cable, close games with Deerfield, beating St. Scholastica in the regionals, and having a great final game against Evanston high¬ lighted the season for the team. Coach Paula Sfickas stat¬ ed “Although the team re¬ cord may not show we had a successful season, the pro¬ gress and teamwork showed by the team made it a win¬ ning season for me.” Ac¬ cording to Sfickas, next years team should be stron¬ ger with the help of more ex¬ perienced players coming to the varsity team.

In¬ juries may occur in any sport. Kickers’ Spirit Never Lost areas begin at an earlier age.” A new addition to the coaching staff this year was Coach Melnick, who in his earlier years played soccer for the Indians. He was a real asset to the team by prepar¬ ing them for the games. Two senior soccer players related their opinions about why the team had not real¬ ized its goals this year. As John Puljic stated, ‘‘We had a lot of individual talent but it did not come together as a unit.” Ray Castro added, ‘‘One of our major problems was lack of communication on the field and not enough movement.” One thing was for sure: win, loose, or tie, the soccer team played each game with spirit and always tried to put their best “foot” forward. Soccer Kicking off the soccer sea¬ son with four returning start¬ ers led Coach Brennan to have an optimistic outlook for the season. The team be¬ gan to practice in August and continued the whole season. The Indians’ first and toughest competition was in the Zeedyk Tournament which found them facing the best teams in the Chicago- land area. Although the Indi¬ ans lost to Hoffman Estates 2-0, and Gordon Tech 4-2, the Indians challenged every team by putting pressure on them the entire game. According to Coach Bren¬ nan, “We were always in ev¬ ery game, yet a step behind at the final buzzer. The rea¬ son is our players do not start playing soccer until high school, while other Senior Alex Kogan fights for con¬ trol of the ball during a conference game against Glenbrook South. De¬ spite the Indians trying efforts, they lost 7, 0 to the Titans. Goalie Bill Pergl grimaces as he deflects a bouncing ball kicked toward the goal. Goaltenders usually do anything to save a potential point. While listening to the coach during halftime, Andreas Harris and Lambros Kalamaris decide to take a water break. Halftimes are usually used by the coaches to decide on the game plans for the next half. Soccer 181 Surpassing Swimmers’ Success From the hot summer mornings of August, to the cool windy evenings of No¬ vember, the girls’ swim team took charge of their season. Though there might not have been a powerful girls’ swim team these last few years, this fall a handfull of individuals proved the sea¬ son a worthwhile one. Key swimmers for the In¬ dians included senior varsity captain Wendy Martin who, despite her bad shoulder, pulled through the season in the 200 Medley relay, 100 Fly, and 200 I.M. Senior Mary Theodore, also a main swimmer, took good care of the 200 yard free and 500 yard free. Junior Patty Tzortzis excelled consider¬ ably by switching over to the sprints. “I’m very happy that coach Lucas agreed to put me in the freestyle sprints. The 200 yard free and the 500 yard free seemed to be a little bit too long for me. As I’ve been told by coach Lucas time after time, when they make up a 150 yard freestyle event, I’ll be the first to sign up, until then, I’m going to stick with anchoring the Medley relay, and swimming the 50 yard and 100 yard free.” Two key swimmers were newcomers this year. Niles North transfer Miki Vucic, a junior, earned many points for the Indians in the 200 Medley relay, 200 Individual Medley, and the 100 Fly. Sophomore Jessica Western also gave the team an extra boost in the 200 Medley re¬ lay and the 100 breastroke. Practices were led by as¬ sistant coach Jodi Nebbia, who made sure everyone started by 3:00 p.m. Prac¬ tice usually consisted of a warm up, some sprints, long distance, and a cool down, which roughly averaged to 5000 yards a day. “Since our yardage has slightly in¬ creased from last year, I feel that it has given the team an extra push towards the win¬ ning way,” stated sopho¬ more Joan Jovero. Jovero helped considerably in the 200 yard and 500 yard freestyle, and is a second year member of the varsity team. She concluded, “I feel our team was better orga¬ nized due mostly to our coaches and to our three outstanding captains, sen¬ iors Wendy Martin, Mary Theodore, and junior Marny Pierini. They helped make sure our practices were al¬ ways challenging, enjoyable, and most importantly, worthwhile. Diving coach Louis Torrez once again proved to have a successful season with his divers. Returning to the team were juniors Marnie Malnekoff and Annette Po- lek. Senior Dawn Jacobs, the diving team’s newest addi¬ tion, helped the team not only with her outstanding performance, but also with her encouraging spirit. One diver to look out for in the upcoming seasons will be freshman Nicki Gardner. Gardner competed both on the varsity level and the junior varsity level. Overall, the swimming team and div¬ ing team have been breaking barriers in all of their set goals. They hope to keep up the number of swimmers and plan to take charge again, next September. Junior member Shanin Zarate concentrates on a double back flip. This dive has a difficulty level of three.

Not only is Rosen a speedster in cross country, but he also participates in track. Running on his opponent’s shoes, Steve Rosen gains ground. At a steady pace, Rosen will endure. In the lead, Steve Rosen finally made his way. A good pace, a good pair of running shoes, and a lot of suffering put him in front. Accelerated Abilities The cross country season got off to a slow start but gradually stabilized. In the pre-season, three members quit, ruining an almost defi¬ nite conference title. But due to hard work and dedi¬ cation, the team pulled to¬ gether and did their best. Led by junior Marty Bach and senior Steve Rosen the team placed much higher in meets than expected. At conference time, Bach had run 15:19 for three miles, making him the favorite for first place. Bach ended up second after giving his all. Rosen was expected to place in the top seven to be all conference, and ended up with a ninth place finish. In the summer, the team started working double prac¬ tices along with running road runs to prepare for the sea¬ son. With the help of other runners including senior Bry¬ an Mittleman and juniors Ken Smith, Tim Hieber, and Keith McMath, the team held it’s own. The freshman and sopho¬ more teams were led by Bri¬ an Moreth and Oscar Pala¬ cios. Both runners led their teams on to wins and were occasionally moved up to the varsity or sophomore levels. With wind blowing through their hair, toes pointed In the air, and time running, Brian Morreth and his opponents try to out run one another. Morreth’s superior skills come through again as he wins the race. Boy ' s Cross Country 185 Swift Sprinters Faster than a speeding bullet, pushing themselves to reach higher bounds, ou¬ trunning the competition ... Girls’ Cross Country streaks across fields, leaving oppo¬ nents behind ... Runners are a unique breed because of tough training and intense compe¬ tition. To be the best, a run¬ ner must develop her stam¬ ina until everyone else breathes in her dust. The Girls’ Cross Country Team realizes this, and they act on it. To get in running shape, they do different types of workouts and run 5 to 7 miles a day. Their 5-1 con¬ ference record and 13-1 re¬ cord in duel meets illustrate their dedication and ability. Of all of Niles West’s fall Var¬ sity Teams, Girls’ Cross Country boasts the best re¬ cord. Coach Judy Sloan summa¬ rized the teams efforts, “Our team was smaller this year, because a lot of the kids that came last year dropped-out. Considering this, we’ve had a wonderful year. The JV and Freshmen were fantastic. We won meets, and we did 100% better than I thought we would.’’ Despite the energy and force that Girls’ Cross Coun¬ try exemplified during the season, “West Word’’ failed to acknowledge the magni¬ tude of their success. Al¬ though disappointed by the lack of coverage by the newspaper, the girls realized that they were running for themselves, and not for fame or praise. For Debbie Pozdol, run¬ ning makes her feel great. “Cross Country is like a team spirit, even though you run individually.’’ Halina Orawiec added, “We feel like a family. It’s exciting!’’ Mrs. Sloan pointed a pic¬ ture of the girls in Cross Country. “It’s easy to quit, but I’m proud of the girls who stayed. I wish more kids would join and see how tal¬ ented they are, because it really is a great sport.’’ Two members of the Girls Cross Country Team travel smoothly down the final road to the awaiting finish line.

These sounds could only come from the Niles West Golf Team. Golf requires pa¬ tience, skill, and coordina¬ tion. If these significant ele¬ ments do not combine, a game can be lost. Even though this season turned out below Head Coach George Gallas expec¬ tations, he still stated, “I was pleased with the show¬ ing in the regionals, and I was happy to see the team capable of competing with other schools.” Just be¬ cause the final season scores were not that impres¬ sive, the team members did not lose faith. Nick Strati- gakes added, ‘‘We have a good young team but we need more players to build a real good team.” With the passage of an¬ other season, the players plan to combine patience, skill, and coordination into one succesful season. Jeff Goby stated, “We can be competitive if we practice more.” A few last minute instructions are received from head coach George Galla. This is Galla’s first year as head coach. Varsity captain Nick Stratigakes watches his ball head for the tenth hole. Stratigakes is a leader on the varsity team. Golf 189 Back Again! Taking to the courts for the first time in four years, the 1986-1987 Junior Varsi¬ ty Tennis Team began the season by acing Niles North, Waukegan East, St. Viator and Maine South. The Indi¬ ans maintained an even re¬ cord in conference play 4-4. Senior players Debbie Ber¬ man, Sabina Puthuseril, Meena Revella and Sue Chung brought experience to the court. During the season, the In¬ dians hosted an invitational tournament which included Deerfield and Highland Park. The Indian players finished third and fourth in this tour¬ nament. Team Captain Debbie Ber¬ man thought she would have been a more qualified player if Niles West had had a Varsi¬ ty tennis team during her underclass years. She would have had a goal to aim for. According to Nancy Penn, next year’s captain, “The team played hard, never gave up and looks forward to a great year.” Coach Len Winans feels encouraged by the return of seven out of ten starters next year. He feels the team still lacks the depth to win it all; however, the ability to beat many teams seems on the horizon. First Row: Yvette Gatilao, Nancy Aufrecht, Rohini Patel, Yana Dashevsky.

They posted another winning season record of 20- 2. The varsity team also cap¬ tured the conference and re¬ gional titles winning the 16 Team Glenbrook South In¬ vite and taking second place in the Leyden Tournament. The Indians also claimed four regional champions: John Lee, 105; Greg Rudin, 112; Scott D’agostino, 126; Angelo Tsagalis, HVWT. The following placed second in regionals: Mark Tadelman, 119; Preston Clark, 138; Mike Gershbein, 167; and Mike Nauman, 155; Brett Youstra, 145; and George Santillian, 132, placed third. At the teams sectional at Leydan, the Indians fell short of the State Tourna¬ ment, losing to the sixth ranked Lake Park Lancers, by the slightest of margins. Rudin, Lee, and D’Agostino advanced to the IHSA state tournament held in Cham¬ paign, Illinois. As a junior, Rudin had placed fourth in the State Tournament, but, in his Senior year he missed a good portion of the season battling mononucleosis. Eventually he recovered and took third place in the State Finals. Senior Pr eston Clark stated, “We all worked hard and achieved the goals that we set forth.” Sophomore Coach Bob Porter summed up the season with a final word, “It was a great sea¬ son, we had 9 out of 12 wrestlers selected for all¬ conference, it was a whole team effort.” Aggressiveness proves to be dominating as Senior Mike Nullman demonstrates his skill. He advances to take down the opponent. 192 Wrestling After practicing for many hours, Four year veteran Mike Gershbein tries to pin his Highland Park Gaint opponent.

Wrestling 193 Conference Title Won Jubilant voices rang through Niles West when the Varsity and JV Wrestling teams won their eighth con¬ ference title in nine years. Although the JV team didn’t receive nearly as much credit as the Varsity, much of the Varsity’s success was due to an excellent JV pro¬ gram. Grueling practices with Varsity and utilization of all age levels contributed to the success of this crew of JV wrestlers. Despite the JV’s constantly changing lineup, the nucleus of the boys in¬ cluded Nasser Amer, Pablo Blanco, Kevin Hansen, Ed Lee, Rory Selman, Scott Sharpiro, and Larry Wish- nick. Often due to a lack of wrestlers in a particular weight class, the team would have to forfeit two matches per meet. “Even when we gave the opposition an edge by forfeiting two weights, we still destroyed them”, said Pablo Blanco. Most importantly, the JV team gave wrestlers the valuable experience to one day wrestle varsity and car¬ ry on a great wrestling tradi¬ tion. Deciding about his next move.

The first Indian victory came against Pontiac in a tourna¬ ment over Christmas break. “It was a great feeling of re¬ lief and elation,” remarked Senior Robert Keller. Unfor¬ tunately, the ball just didn’t bounce the Cager’s way all season. Although many of those first ten games began with close scores, the Indi¬ ans fell apart in the second half too many ties. Senior Don Nole commented, “In the second half we couldn’t get our act together.” After an uneventful and unsuc¬ cessful second year of coaching, Tom Meyer joined his players in hoping that next year would be the Cager’s year with a return¬ ing group of five juniors and two sophomores, that dream just might come true.

Win¬ ning 17 of their first 19 games, the Indians slaugh¬ tered a majority of their op¬ ponents. The squads suc¬ cess stemmed from their well-balanced attack. Guards Lori Yetter and Heather Donlon shot im¬ pressively from the perim¬ eter while Debbie Pozdol and Sandy Stergios handled the inside game.

According to ju¬ nior Homberto Hortua, “Even though most of the close meets could have been won, everybody swam up to their potential.” Ac¬ cording to head coach Lar¬ son, “The assistant coaches did an excellent job in train¬ ing the athletes.” Over all, the team ended the year six and six with both coaches and players believing the re¬ cord should have had more wins.

Amazing Talents An amazing thing hap¬ pened to wooden and metal¬ lic equipment when mem¬ bers of the Girls’ Gymnastics Team performed. The hard¬ ware became a tool for the display of style, grace, and beauty. A flat mat became an ocean on which the girls danced and soared. On the bars and vault, the girls floated, turning flips as smoothly as dolphins in the sea. Although gymnastics seems to be an individual sport, when competitions rolled around, all the indivi¬ duals combined to form one powerful representation of the teamwork needed for success. The season went smoothly, with the team performing consistently and confidently. A tough loss to Highland Park was avenged at the Conference Meet, where the team tied for sec¬ ond place. The season end¬ ed with a 6 win- 3 loss re¬ cord, a “flip-flop” of last year’s results and a “leap” of two places from fourth in the Conference. The strength of all four levels led the team to its win¬ ning record, and the prom¬ ise of the freshmen and sophomores gives the team a chance to develop into a first rate competitor. With their outstanding perfor¬ mances, sophomores Laura Bowman and Barbara Koz- lowski showed the bright fu¬ ture in store for the team. According to sophomore Sarah Harris, “There was a lot of team work, and we helped each other more.” With such cooperation, dedi¬ cation, and talent, the team seems ready to take on the world. Girls Gymnastics 207 Rollercoasting With The Gymnasts After a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, the gym¬ nastics season ended on a very disappointing note. Fa¬ vored to win the CSL confer¬ ence title and place in the top five of the state, the Indi¬ ans missed both of these goals due to the crippling in¬ jury that Tom Joseph re¬ ceived at the end of the sea¬ son. Pulling together, the team redeemed themselves by stealing the regional title from Highland Park, the con¬ ference champions. Coach Burkel stated, “This year’s team had more potential than last year’s seventh-in- the-state-team.” Dairin Bairn, Adam Cohen, Scott Jackson, and Sung Kim still made Niles West’s presence felt at Forest View High School, site of the Boys Gymnastics State Meet. The sophomore team flexed their muscles by placing third in a very tough confer¬ ence and also boasting two individual conference cham¬ pions, Mike Colby on vault and Andy Browder on rings. Even though the Indians fell short of their expectations, many coaches still respect¬ ed the Indians’ fight for ex¬ cellence even when the fu¬ ture looked very dismal. Gymnastics Won 8.

Those athletes who ex¬ celled in distance included senior Gail Dennis, juniors Debbie Pozdol and Peggie Campbell, and freshman Elissa Laboy. Seniors Sarah Kim and Stacy Saitta, soph¬ omore Holly Kahn, and freshman Sheyla Pemble performed very well in the sprinting. Lauri Yetter talks with Mrs. Almour about her long jump form.

Larry Meyer commented, “My freshmen year, schools used to invite us to their meets to get an easy W in the win column. Now teams don’t expect that W to come so easily. Ac¬ tually, these teams generally end up with L’s at the hands of the Indians.” Doug Hirsh added, “Our track team is looking hard to beat. Every¬ body’s goal is for the Confer¬ ence victory come May 14. This is the year Coach Campbell is going to see it happen!” Teams expected to give the Indians a run for the con¬ ference title include Deer¬ field, Highland Park, and Maine West.

Kickers Reach The Top When thinking about a girls state soccer tourna¬ ment, Niles West High School should ring a bell. For the first time ever in Illinois, the Illinois High School had sanctioned a girls state soc¬ cer tournament, and the IHSA chose Niles West to host it because in the past years, Niles West had orga¬ nized a local tournament, consisting of teams in our di¬ vision. Taking pride in the IHSA giving NiWeHi the honor of hosting the tournament, Varsity Coach Brennan stat¬ ed, “We are the pioneer school of soccer, and I’m ex¬ cited they chose our school for the first girls state soccer tournament in the history of Illinois.” The decision also impressed the members of the varsity team. Senior player Karin Janessa com¬ mented, “As a four year member on the team, I take this decision as an honor. I’ll always remember that IHSA chose my alma mater to hold the first girls state tour¬ nament.” A great block is made by Kristina Lall while an opposing teammate stares in awe.

If our pitching can come through, we should have a winning season,” said coach George Galla optimistically, hoping for a fourth straight confer¬ ence title. Returning seniors David Neuhouser, Craig Harris, and Brian Israel were ex¬ pected to start for the Indi¬ ans, along with some work from junior Tony Stegich. The team could have had a strong pitching staff if they fulfilled Coach Galla’s expec¬ tations. According to Coach Galla, everything fell into place last year, which led the team to a championship season. If this happens again, Niles West can look forward to a rewarding year.

One ele¬ ment though stands out above the rest and that is practice. As the saying goes, prac¬ tice makes perfect. Here at Niles West, practice plays an important role in all of the sports such as Football, Vol¬ leyball, Basketball, Wres¬ tling, Baseball, and Track. Whether it is practicing shooting baskets, hitting baseballs, or catching passes any kind of practice is necessary. After school you can always find a team either inside or out practic¬ ing and perfecting their skills. You will find the base¬ ball team outside on the field hitting balls, or the basket¬ ball teams inside shooting free throws. Not only is practicing the basics of any sport but also in conditioning. The weight room is always filled with athletes building up their strength and stamina. Coaches are also always making sure that their team players are doing their sit- ups, push-ups, and running laps. Conditioning is also a major necessity in practicing for a sport. Practicing for an upcom¬ ing event takes up more time than the actual event. This is why practice is so im¬ portant. If a team practices hard, then eventually prac¬ tice will make perfect. As George Langis brings the ball upfield the defense begins to take action. Soccer takes a lot of strength and stamina to play. Nick Stratigakis concentrates as he putts his ball into the hole.

In addition, organizations such as the pom pon girls, cheerleaders, wrest- lettes, and the marching band add to the enjoy¬ ment of sporting events and assemblies. The student govern¬ ment which consists of freshman, sophomore, ju¬ nior, and senior cabinets, stude nt union, and stu¬ dent senate represent the students of Niles West and provide many fun ac¬ tivities. The Homecoming dance and contests, prom, the Lip Sync con¬ test, Frosh-Soph Mixer, Turnabout, and other ac¬ tivities are all provided through the hard work and dedication of these organizations. “All organizations play an important role in your future as well,” stated ju¬ nior Mindy Grossberg. “Colleges are very im¬ pressed with students who became involved dur¬ ing their high school years.” Halftime performances are eagerly awaited by the enthusiastic crowds.

The purpose of this club, said Biology teacher and sponsor Rita Kay. “Is to ex¬ pose the students to fields in health sciences.” As one ac¬ tivity to promote that goal, the club held the Great American Smoke-Out, a na¬ tional event encouraging smokers to voluntarily quit for one day. On November 18. 1987, club members ex¬ hibited a Quitter’s Guide, in¬ formation pamphlets on the dangers of cigarette smok¬ ing, book markers and but¬ tons in the cafeteria. In addi¬ tion to the Smoke-Out, the club took a tour of the Northwestern Memorial Hospital to visit its various departments. Other activity plans included a bake sale, another hospital tour and hosting a speaker. Referring to one of the or¬ ganization’s strengths.

For its members, though, the club served as an important means of learning more about their future careers.

Tom Mitchell, began his exploration of the environment with sixteen active members. As the years progressed and the ecology movement slowly diminished, the club still sur¬ vived. “This year we have an en¬ tirely new group. Everyone is enthusastic and apprecia¬ tive.” stated Gerald Firak. the club sponsor. The seven dedicated members shared a common interest in learn¬ ing about the relationships between organisms and the world. Members strove to fullfill their growing interests in ecology by exploring Illi¬ nois’ vast environment. The club kept busy this year taking fall trips to Can- tigny and to Morton’s Arbo¬ retum. visiting the Museum of Science and Industry in the winter, and enjoying a spring trip to Starved Rock. In addition, members also cleaned and planted praire seeds in the greenhouse. The Ecology Club helped the students to become more familiar with nature and brought them to under¬ stand more about their rela¬ tionship with the environ¬ ment. Through field trips and hands-on praire exper¬ ience, members also learned the importance of conserva¬ tion.

The American Field Service or¬ ganized trips abroad for students se¬ lected after completing forms and be¬ ing interviewed several times. In addi¬ tion, AFS, planned an exchange week¬ end for its members as well as several fundraisers including their infamous churros sales. The club also created a great experience for senior Michelle Mackey, the exchange student from Australia, with hopes she would take home memories to cherish. Ali Kwon described the group by stating, “This year seems more unified, dedicated, and enthusiastic than past years.” The Executive Board composed of Jeannie Choi, Ali Kwon, and Rachel Posner, led the group to achieve their goals of raising money and increasing membership.

From the spurts grow talents, which we strive to use in ex¬ pressing our individuality. ‘ Where can students find the outlet for such liter¬ ary and artistic talents? At West of Edens. ' ' revealed Senior Helen Vayz- man. referring to the school’s literary magazine. The uniqueness of WOE. as it is affectionately called by its members, represented the “of the students, by the students, for the students” ideal. Not only did students submit their original work, but students also “grad¬ ed” the work that would be read by students. Peer consideration rather than teachers ' grades determined what was printed for students to read. Requirements for membership did not exist; in fact, a large staff provided more opinions to get the best possible review on a given work. Literary works such as poems, es¬ says. and short stories, accompanied drawings, photographs, and other artwork to create a complete maga¬ zine. During each season of publica¬ tion. the staff has held a contest for the cover design, awarding the winner a cash prize and complimentary issue. The magazine has changed drastical¬ ly over the years, from condemning the Vietnam War during its years as " OPUS.” to more recently criticizing abortion. When asked her thoughts about West of Edens. Junior Yiwen Chang replied. “It ' s a pool of creativity and individual expression that gives yo u an enthusiastic feeling.” Editor of West of Edens.

Service Adults often accuse teen¬ agers of causing problems, but three clubs. S.A.D.D.. Peer Counseling, and Tu¬ tor’s Club are helping stu¬ dents to solve them. Some students work to reduce the number of deaths and injur¬ ies by participating in S.A.D.D. Others help stu¬ dents find answers to their questions and problems in Peer Counseling. Tutor’s Club provides academically talented students with a chance to help other stu¬ dents conquer difficulties in classes. Each one of these organizations helps mem¬ bers to grow while giving as¬ sistance to others.

Small groups with one or two student leaders meet about once a week for a rap session. Member Karin Much exclaimed. “Peer Counseling is a great way to meet new friends and learn new skills. ” According to sponsor David Lee. “Peer Counseling has been a great experience for me. It has al¬ lowed me to meet a lot of terrific kids, teach them some new skills, and then combine those skills with their own natural talents to lead groups and help them¬ selves and their peers grow.” Tutor ' s Club, sponsored by Linda Horwitz. helps any students who need aca¬ demic support. Students who excel in one or more subjects join this club not for personal gain, but because they want to share their tal¬ ents with others. Tutor Greg Rosow states. " It feels good to know that you can help other people, especially when they appreciate the time and effort the tutor gives.

West Word 241 Using a computer as a resource, seniors Robert Liu and Mike Tipescu, work together to prepare for the next competition. Academic Bowl provides students to compete against others in factual knowledge. In The Land Of Academia Senior Kyung Chang ponders the answer to the latest academic bowl question. The club stimulates mem¬ bers to use their minds to uncover the answers to difficult questions. 242 Academic Bowl “What creature inhabits the Tulgey Wood?’” A buzz¬ er sounds, and a student calls out, “Jabberwocky.” After checking the answer, the moderator awards points to the Niles West Aca¬ demic Bowl team. Juniors and seniors comprise most of the team, although soph¬ omores occasionally join on invitation from faculty spon¬ sors Faith Shapiro or Carl Geis, who supervise the ac¬ tivity, attending the meets with the students and pre¬ paring them by running through practice tests, com¬ posed of questions similar to those asked during a meet. Usually, the students attend an invitational, where two four-person teams compete, with a moderator asking questions. Covering a wide spectrum, the topics range from math to useless trivia. In early December, the Academic Bowl team partici¬ pated in a different sort of competition in which the en¬ tire team competed via computer. Inserting a disk into the computer, the stu¬ dents projected the ques¬ tions onto a screen. As the questions appeared, the stu¬ dents shouted out their an¬ swers, and the team’s typist entered them as quickly as possible. Speed and accura¬ cy determined the number of points earned by each team. Competition went on nation-wide, with the high¬ est scorer declared the win¬ ner. Niles West ranked sev¬ enth. Academic Bowl has a 22 year history at Niles West. In 1965, when WGN sponsored a game show called “Aca¬ demic Bowl,” Niles West be¬ came one of the first schools to participate. Today, many members li¬ ken the activity to a more recent game show, Jeopar¬ dy In fact, the Niles West team was named the Jeop¬ ardy theme song their an¬ them and Alex Trabec, the host of Jeopardy, their guru. Moreover, participation in Academic Bowl led senior Greg Rosow to apply to actu¬ ally be on Jeopardy. During the 1986 87 sea¬ son, the team took first place in the Eisenhower Invi¬ tational and went to quarter finals in the state competi¬ tion, where they lost to Niles North. Reflecting upon this loss, Geis firmly states, “This year we will beat North, or I’ll eat my hat!” Speaking of the challenge which the game provides, senior Gail Gutterman re¬ marked, “Academic Bowl is a stimulating mental chal¬ lenge for people who like to test their knowledge on a va¬ riety of subjects.” The Play’s The Thing Thespians Act, Dance, Sing After a long discussion. International Thespian Society members take a vote on the latest idea that they could pursue The club provides those interested in drama to express their opinion. Farce, tragedy, song and dance All these take organization and creative management and junior May de las Alas gives it her all As secretary of the International Thespian Society. May recalls the minutes of the previous meeting and asks for fresh input After a very successful 1986-87 season, the Niles West division of the Interna¬ tional Thespian Society had high hopes for the future. In March. 1987. Niles West took part in a nation¬ wide talent search, under the leadership of theatre sponsor Robert Johnson, and his colleagues, vocal di¬ rector Sheri Owens, and choreographer Gretchen Glader. Nineteen talented high school students from Chicago. Philadelphia. Los Angeles. Atlanta and Denver joined West s theatre de¬ partment to perform the critically acclaimed A CHO¬ RUS LINE at the Society ' s annual festival in Muncie. In¬ diana. Seniors John Barba and Michelle Dayan por¬ trayed Al Delucca and Diana Morales in the production, and thirty-two members of the theatre department served as a backstage cho¬ rus. THE ODD COUPLE, direct¬ ed by English teacher James Batts concluded the theatre season for the 1986-87 aca¬ demic year, and following that production came a summer community theatre show. " Theatre 219 Revues Broadway. ' ' The variety filled production include Niles West alumni, current students and major commu¬ nity talents in a salute to the best musicals of the last half-century. Seniors John Barba and Paul Katz, along with juniors Maggie Duffy. Beth Lichtenstein, and Kevin Steele performed in the pro¬ duction. In September, auditions were held for the annual stu¬ dent-directed musical. BYE- BYE BIRDIE! Other produc¬ tions for the year included Childrens ' theatre. HANSEL AND GRETEL. directed by Cynthia Philbin. and the musical LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, directed by Johnson. Looking back on their suc¬ cessful productions, all Thespians felt pride in their accomplishments. Junior Carl Helwing. treasurer of the department ' s executive board stated.

Violin, viola, cello, and bass provide music galore throughout the year. Whether playing Bach or Beethoven, the 90 members of the concert prac¬ ticed hard deserving the applause they received at performances. Conductor Ted Kaitchuck explained the excep¬ tional quality of their performances by saying. ' The orchestra is successful because the school ' s best are mem¬ bers.’’ The concert orchestra kept busy throughout the year at various func¬ tions. At the annual Open House, the Orchestra entertained parents during their free time. On December 16. at the Holiday Festival they displayed all types of music from Baroque to Ro¬ mantic. Finally, at the Pasta and Pops Dinner concert, the orchestra played exquisite music throughout dinner. In addition, the musicians made stars of hnm Se ives at the Fall and Spring Festi¬ vals held November 4th. 1987. and May 23. 1988. The Orchestra partici¬ pated in the Illinois High School Associ¬ ation Competition, where only the best of schools and best of members per¬ formed. and they also auditioned for the Illinois Music Educators Association District and All State Orchestras. Officers elected by the members, in¬ cluded President Jason Hsu. and Vice- President Xyla Gatilao. who boosted the orchestra’s spirit and informed them of fundraisers. Treasurer Tecla Annes took charge of money from fun¬ draisers. while secretary Jeanme Kim kept track of attendance. By practicing daily, cooperating, and performing on stage like professionals, the 90 members acquired experience for the real world. Due to the hard work of the officers and members, the orchestra had a very fulfilling year. 244 Orchestra u m 4 ■ A ilniU. W ' » If. JKJ v ' i f r i ik Concert Band- First row: Tecla Annes.

" Go Tell It on the Mountain " , and “One Night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster filled the music wing during rehearsals of the choral de¬ partment. Now divided into Expressions. Concert Choir and Girls Ensemble, the cho¬ ral department has expand¬ ed in recent years. Vocal teacher Sheri Owens de¬ scribes her students as. " The best group of kids I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the last four years.” During the very first week of school, nine students be¬ gan working with Owens to prepare an audition for the Illinois Music Educators As¬ sociation (IMEA). in which students would be selected for district and all-state choruses. Of these nine, seniors John Barba. Michelle Dayan, and Paul Katz, and juniors Kirsten Gieler. Carl Helwing and Pascale Trouil- lot were chosen for the dis¬ trict division. Stated Owens. " I am very proud. I thought we may have had one or two chosen due to the competi¬ tion. but to have six is abso¬ lutely outstanding! " In November. Expressions and Concert Choir worked with choir students from Niles North to sing at Centre East with major performer. Rosemary Clooney, most famous for her role in the film. " White Christmas.” A month and a half of rehears¬ al perfected the music. On the day of the concert. Miss Clooney’s daughter gave birth to a baby boy. and to celebrate the happy event. Clooney had every member of the performing choirs sign the stagebill as a present to her new grandchild. The department performs four regular concerts at Niles West throughout the year, and sang at junior high schools to promote interest among incoming freshman. For many, the groups brought not only a chance to meet people, but to learn as well. According to junior Beth Lichtenstein. “Mrs. Owens is a wonderful teach¬ er and the rehearsals are a great time to break away from school by being with friends and having fun.” Expressions- First row: May de las Alas.

Selectively chosen, members of both clubs cru¬ saded to achieve their goals, whether it be a blood drive, a food drive or a cultural learning experience. The National Honor Soci¬ ety, sponsored by Mr. Bo- evers, combined their ef¬ forts to help various organi¬ zations. A blood drive, a spelling bee for Junior High students, interscholastic ac¬ tivities, as well as a canned food drive for the hungry during the holiday season contributed to their achieve¬ ments. NHS provided a unique and enjoyable learn¬ ing experience for its mem¬ bers. Summing it up, Senior Nick Nafpliotis commented, “It’s a useful function in our society which kids our age can participate in.” Likewise, Spanish Honor Society educates and pro¬ vides an experience to re¬ member for its members. As president Gail Dennis ex¬ pressed, ‘‘We all get along well and it’s an educational experience. The members in this group focused their ef¬ forts in understanding the Spanish culture. Visiting a museum of Mexican art and watching a Flamingo Dance Show highlighted their year. Spanish Honor Society- First row: Emily Vep, Mrs. Lopez.

Seniors Steven Schaffer and Larry Mills discuss their plan to promote school spirit among the students. To be a member of the N-Club one must be a senior and have received a varsity letter. Varsity Letter People Are varsity athletes really better students? Both Mr. Nebbia, the sponsor of the N-Club, and the N-Club members would enthusiasti¬ cally answer “yes”. A stu¬ dent wishing to become a N- Club member must be a sen¬ ior and have a varsity letter. Members take great pride in being an N-Club member. “I worked for four years on the soccer team to earn my ma¬ jor ‘N’ and being an N-Club member gives me a great feeling of pride.” stated Robert Keller. N-Club mem¬ bers tried to promote good sportsmanship, fellowship, and school spirit. Along with these positive contributions, they also worked the con¬ cession stand at the girls’ basketball games and kept some of the faculty in shape after school recreational competition. The N-Club members aided in communi¬ ty service such as working at carnivals for the handi¬ capped. Speaking of his work at the carnival Ramel Failma commented, “Volun¬ teering my time for those who are underprivileged made me feel good.” Throughout the year the members of N-Club worked to set a good example for other students by helping their school and community.

N-Club 251 Topically Speaking ■ That’s The Subject The Seminars for Scholars program also dealt with political issues and even shared the same faculty adviser as Current Events. Only a select group of seniors, who applied for the honor, at¬ tended the lectures. To be accepted, students had to have good grades and exhibit an interest in current events. Once a month, these students missed their last two classes to listen to a lec¬ ture given by a guest expert on some field of current interest such as nuclear freeze, AIDS, or South Africa. Following each lecture, students asked questions and discussed issues. Senior Meena Ravella voice strong approval of the program, saying, “It gives us a chance to get acquainted with current, volatile issues, and we’re also allowed to give our opinions on these issues, which is a big improvement over most of the oth¬ er programs.” McMahon also believed that this group opened students up to a new experiences by providing a forum for provocative, controversial points of view. Debate shares an interest in contem¬ porary affairs with both Current Events and Seminars for Scholars but debat¬ ers do more talking. Veteran Debate members began researching the topic of Latin America during the summer. Opening her briefcase, sophomore Trisha Hoo Chung sorts through her eviden ce. Debators must have evidence on hand to use during a tournament. The debating season extended from September to March, culminating in a state-wide tournament, with top stu¬ dents going on to compete nationally. By early November, the team of Ken Zeff and Tim Paek had already qualified to compete in the state-wide junior var¬ sity division. A new coach, Audrey Skwierawski, Northwestern student, encouraged many new students to join, increasing the team’s size to more than twice the previous year. Skwier¬ awski anticipated success for the team, saying “Debate is one of the most valuable activities available to high school students. It combines a working knowledge of world events with communicative, analytical skills in a social, group-oriented activity. Lead¬ ers are forged in debate; friendships are formed.” Debate team president, senior Greg Rosow, agreed that partici¬ pating in debate had helped him, but for a different reason. He claimed, “Debate is a great excuse for yelling at total strangers and telling them why they’re wrong.” Judging by the number of members in these three groups students enjoyed these activities that encouraged them to carefully analyze the world beyond high school. The upcoming presidential cam¬ paign, the AIDS crisis, political stability in Latin America have all caught the interest of many Niles West students. Three extra-curricular activities en¬ couraged interest in contemporary is¬ sues: Current Events, Seminars for Scholars, and Debate. Faculty sponsor Thomas McMahon explained that the objective of Current Events is “to encourage students to be more knowledgeable about contempo¬ rary events and interested in the politi¬ cal process.” The Current Events Club gave all interested students a chance to discuss and learn more about poli¬ tics. Members saw films and talked about major international issues, such as problems in Central America. This year, club members have also had a chance to experience a Presidential campaign first-hand, working as volun¬ teers for the presidential candidates of their choice. “Current Events gives students the chance to realize how events in the past affect the present and the future.

Talking to the dancers about the show, sponsor Gretchen Glader offers her advice and critique. The show entitled ‘‘Late Night with the Orchesis Dance Co.” was held in late January. Orchesis dancers remain transfixed on stage awaiting the curtain to fall. The Dance Company prepares months in advance for the mid-year show. All smiles after the completion of their opening number, during dress rehearsal, Orchesis dancers stand in their last pose before dispersing to prepare for their next dance. Stu¬ dents audition in the beginning of the year to be part of the dance company. 254 Orch esis Dance Co. Freshman Mickey Kamenetsky per¬ forms a one hundred and twenty degree kick into the air. Kicks are only a part of the diversity in dance technique offered by the Orchesis Dance Company. Keeping In Step Sleek silhouettes slide across the darkened stage. Suddenly, bursts of light illu¬ minate the dancers as they jam to a funky beat. On Jan¬ uary 23rd and 24th, the Or¬ chesis Dance Company suc¬ cessfully choreographed and produced the show, “Late Night With the Orche¬ sis Dance Company,” con¬ sisting of a creative display of a variety of dance styles. Under the leadership of sponsor and professional dancer Gretchen Glader, as well as President Maritess Tamunday, the Orchesis dancers prepared dances in¬ fluenced by jazz, street, and ballet styles. “The diversity of styles allows the Orchesis Dance Company to creative¬ ly express themselves,” ex¬ plained Treasurer Rachel Posner. Throughout the year, Or¬ chesis raised funds to pur¬ chase new costumes. Rang¬ ing from camouflage to sexy street wear, this wardrobe contributed to the unique and usual impression exud¬ ed by each number. The flexible practice schedule al¬ lowed individual dancers to practice on specific days, eliminating waiting and pro¬ viding maximum time use for busy members. Organized practice schedules, eye¬ catching costumes, exper¬ ienced leadership, and fresh exciting student choreo¬ graphed dance numbers all contributed to the Orchesis Dance Company’s success in producing a memorable show.

Mathletes Figure It Out “AAARHGH!” screamed another frustrated math stu¬ dent as he crumpled up his homework paper and threw it away. Members of the Math Team, a group of 40- GO students whose common interest in math goes be¬ yond the amount ordinarily done in the classroom, sel¬ dom react to math in this way. Pondering over topics as radicals, quadratics, and polynomial functions, mem¬ bers enjoyed Math Team as a fun environment in which to learn more math. After doing academics throughout the day, some students preferred a fun ac¬ tivity rather than an aca¬ demic club, however, Math Team made learning fun. As junior member Sharon Huang said, “Math Team is a good learning experience in that the coaches make math fun, unlike math classes dur¬ ing the day. It is a change from other clubs in that we are like one big happy fam¬ ily, one biggroup of friends.” Each grade level held its own practices, participating in the monthly NSML con¬ tests and also the AT-PAC and the IML. The series of contests culminated in a trip to Normal, Illinois, in May. Only the best schools in the state qualified for this event, based on their performance at a preliminary regional exam. Not just for brilliant would- be mathematicians, Math Team provided an activity which anyone with a funda¬ mental knowledge of math could enjoy. Events such as the eight person team, the calculator team, and the oral competition allowed op¬ portunities for those lacking the self-confidence to take math tests alone. Encourag¬ ing everyone to join, sopho¬ more Misato Miyama stated, “Math Team is awesome. I love it.” Members and spon¬ sors alike agreed that they had a great year. After the thirty minute test, Sam Hwang explains to freshman Delia Lorinez how to solve a puzzling problem. Members have many practice sessions in order to prepare for the monthly contests. Math team members work diligently during a contest test. Students with high scores are honored by the math department. 256 Math Team A Show With their waving flags, smiling faces, and new uni¬ forms, the Niles West color guard contributed an excit¬ ing addition to the marching band. Hours of long hard practice paid off when the color guard performed to perfection at every home football game. Sponsors Jeff Fielder and William Koch, along with the captain Kathy Schroeder and co-captain, Julie Cook, choreographed and organized these eye¬ catching routines. Traveling with the band to Tempe, Arizona, the color guard marched in the Fiesta- Bowl Parade on December 31, 1987. The color guard’s Of Flags other performances includ¬ ed pre-game basketball shows and junior high per¬ formances, which helped the color guard program to become a more recogniz¬ able group. According to sophomore Wendy Abragan, “It’s a big commitment but joining is fun. Doing A per¬ fect routine can be most re¬ warding.” The color guard proved to be a viable and exciting ex¬ tra-curricular activity be¬ cause of good leadership and active members.” Hard working, caring, and friendly define the color guard girls who are a joy to work with, stated sponsor Jeff Fielder.

The Hellenic Club continued with 6 years experience under the guid¬ ance of sponsor Mrs. Angie Panos, while the Korean Club, headed by Mrs. Angela Graham, and the Chinese Club, sponsored by Mrs. Carole Simone, began their second year of activity. An¬ other ethnic group, the Fili¬ pino Club, also gained ap¬ proval. Although these clubs represent students who come from different ethnic backgrounds, members shared the same reasons for establishing their clubs: the desire to develop a secure and friendly surrounding for students new to this country who might have problems communicating with peers, and also to help members maintain their ethnic identi¬ ty. Throughout the year, these clubs sponsored var¬ ious fundraisers including bake sales, taffy apples sales, and candy sales. The funds raised went to chari¬ ties such as the Salvation Army and to people who needed money for serious ill¬ nesses. In return for these donations, the clubs gained experience in having meet¬ ings, organizing schedules, and balancing books. “It’s a course in itself. Belonging to an ethnic club truly makes a better person out of you be¬ cause you learn to deal with problems that could easily occur in everyday life,” stat¬ ed Filipino Club member Fehlyn Tulen. Each club also held activities such as din¬ ners, field trips, picnics, vol¬ leyball games, and horse¬ back riding. Sometimes two or more ethnic clubs joined in an activity in order to pro¬ mote unity and avoid isola¬ tion from the rest of the school. Each of these ethnic clubs involved students who wanted to learn more about their own culture as well as the cultures of others, “Be¬ longing to an ethnic club of¬ fers students a terrific ex¬ perience in meeting new people and it brings them to¬ gether where they can have fun, and share ideas,” stat¬ ed Korean Club member Judy Kim. Conducting the Korean club meeting, officers James Lee and Meehee Hong, offer suggestions of possible activities the club can hold. The club plan many activities under the supervision of sponsor Mrs. Graham. Helenic club officers Susan Theotokatos and Patty Tzortzis discuss the agenda for the next meeting.

Spirits were high during the holiday season as junior Ji Sun Kim helps a group of children during a Spanish Club field trip. Foreign language clubs offer students to enhance their knowledge in areas not covered during class time. Foreign Language Clubs Offer Fun, Food And Film Those students who long for foreign foods and films and enjoy experiencing a to¬ tally different culture, make up the foreign language clubs. Each year, enthusias¬ tic students meet on a bi¬ weekly basis to share views and to participate in fun¬ draising activities such as bake sales and candy sales. Because of the devotion of the members, French Club planned many cultural activities including a trip to the French play, “The Mar¬ riage of Figaro,” as well as their annual trip to a French restaurant chosen by the club members. “We had a lot more people in the group this year, and we had a lot of fun,” exclaimed secretary Rachel Posner. German Club started or¬ ganizing their priorities very early. A trip to Great Amer¬ ica, and winter ski weekend, a culture walk through Ger¬ man Town, lunch at Cafe’ Lutz, and a shopping expedi¬ tion with the West German exchange students, kept members active throughout the school year. Many new ideas inspired the record breaking mem¬ bership of the Israeli Club. Along with Israeli Clubs from other schools, members competed in a volleyball game, attended a dance fes¬ tival, and went to an Israeli restaurant. With the money earned from bake sales, they provided gifts for the el¬ derly at the winter holidays. With new leadership also came new aspirations for the Spanish Club. Using money from bake sales and donations, members pro¬ vided toys for underprivi¬ leged Hispanic children. In the spring, the foreign language clubs also joined the ethnic clubs to present different aspects of their cul¬ tures to parents and stu¬ dents at an annual Interna¬ tional Night. All these activi¬ ties provided foreign lan¬ guage club members oppor¬ tunities to learn about par¬ ticular cultures while helping others. French Ciub- First row: Meredith Holt. Niki Antonakos.

Discussing their latest plans, freshmen cabinet members put their heads together to reach the best decision. Cabinets hold weekly meetings to plan and organize particular school events. Cabinets Unified The Freshmen and Sopho¬ more cabinets both had the same goal in mind: To pro¬ mote school spirit and plan activities for the classes of ’90 and ’91. The Freshmen Class Cabinet, led by Presi¬ dent Elliot Malkin and Vice- President Josh Feinberg, or¬ ganized many fundraisers in¬ cluding a Valentine’s Day bake sale, and an “end of the year” banquet. Accord¬ ing to sponsor Laurie Zucker, “I was thrilled with the large turnout and eager participation for the Fresh¬ men Cabinet.” The Frosh-Soph mixer, lip- sync, and a volleyball tour¬ nament headed the list of the accomplishments of the Sophomore Class Cabinet, with Brian Marcus as presi¬ dent and Leyla Arsan as vice-president. All forty members helped to make sure the class of ’90 had a successful year. Member Lori Utanoff commented, “This year’s sophomore cabinet has worked hard and we’ve enjoyed every mi nute of it.” Although the jobs were new to some and old to oth¬ ers, members of both clubs had some fun while working hard to reach their goals. 262 Freshmen Sophomore Cabinets Officers Grace Diaz, Brian Marcus and Leyla Arsan, initiate the sophomore class cabinet meeting.

Cabinets offer students a chance to develop friendships while at the same time it teaches members to work together. Cabinets Get Together For Varied Activities “Birds of a Feather flock together” was an appropri¬ ate title for the work of Ju¬ nior and Senior Cabinets. Both Cabinets worked their hardest to ensure an out¬ standing year. Senior Cabinet members unified, coming up with sev¬ eral ideas for various school activities. To start the year off, Senior Cabinet success¬ fully planned the Homecom¬ ing Parade, followed by a winter visit to the Hull House Orphanage to bring Christ¬ mas Cheer and some gifts to needy children. In February, the Senior Cabinet again presented the ever-popular Battle of the Bands. To finance these activi¬ ties, several sold-out bake sales took place. Senior, Karin Orsic, stated enthusi¬ astically, “The whole Senior Cabinet has joined together and has been very success¬ ful in raising money for our activities and we are looking forward to raising money for the best Senior Issue ever!” Junior Cabinet- First row: Nancy Penn, Gordie Mraovic.

Each week, the bang of the gavel announced the be¬ ginning of both Student Sen¬ ate and Student Union meetings. The members of these two organizations worked to improve the qual¬ ity of student life. “Student Senate gives students a chance to work with the administration to better our school and its policies,” commented sen¬ ior member Frank Brodsky. Senate not only worked with the administration, but also with parents and teachers as well. Students worked di¬ rectly with the administra¬ tion in the Student Appeals Board where students and directors had equal voting rights. Student Senate, also known as the student body government, handled all the school elections for class Cabinets and Student Union, as well as Student Senate. Mr. James Sweeny, the sponsor of Senate stated, “The enthusiasm of both the leaders and members is ex¬ tremely gratifying.” Student government members vis¬ ited another high school for a day to observe that school’s government. Sen¬ ate also provided opportuni¬ ties for members to meet and work with the Board of Education. While Senate dealt with school government, Student union took charge of plan¬ ning exciting activities for all class levels. “Student Union upholds school spirit by unit¬ ing all class levels,” com¬ mented senior member Amy Chertow. This active group sponsored the Homecoming Dance in October, the after finals bash in January, the turn-about dance in March, and Spring Activities Week in April. In addition to planning dances and spirit weeks, the members found reward in working together in order to make school more enjoyable for all students. According to treasurer Stephanie Gold, “Student Union promotes leadership skills which help the members to partici¬ pate.” Throughout the year, Stu¬ dent Senate and Student Union provided opportuni¬ ties for interested students to participate in the govern¬ ment and social activities of the school. Reading the minutes of the previous Senate meeting are senior Joseph Jovero and junior Eric Orsic. Senate provides students to work with the administration to improve school policies.

Checking Out After lot of brief break. tiresome dancing, Pablo Blanco and Danielle Cham take a Their space on the dance floor awaits them to return. The mod 28 bell buzzed throughout the silent hall¬ ways of NiWeHi every week¬ day at 2:25 pm. Mobs of cheerful students filled the deserted halls as they “Checked Out” from their fi¬ nal classes. For a number of these students, the mod 28 be ll meant running to catch the early bus, grabbing an after school snack in the cafeteria, going to a sport or club activity, waiting in front of room 140 to serve a de¬ tention, or rushing out of school in order to make it to their parttime jobs on time. As for the other less fortu¬ nate students, the mod 28 bell did not designate that it was time to “Check Out”. They were forced to remain behind closed doors until 2:40, therefore the 2:25 bell only reminded them that they had 15 minutes left of class. Concentration was dif¬ ficult for these students due to the constant disturbance of banging lockers, the roar¬ ing sound of engines running as classmates exited the parking lot, and other ex¬ cess volume within the build¬ ing. These deprived students who either had a lab or an art class envied the others who left at 2:25. “Having a class until the 29th mod tended to cause difficulties for the unfortunate students who had to catch the bus,” stated Marny Pierini. Check¬ ing out at 2:40, or 2:25 if you’re lucky, was actually a privilege that West students enjoyed. Other neighboring schools checked out of school as late as 2:50 pm., or even 3:30 pm! Despite the fact that classes ended at 2:40, that did not mean that the school doors closed. An abundance of students tended to leave school at a much later time. Being involved in a sport or club activity often meant re¬ maining in the building for quite some time. Eventually, students did check out of school, but only to find themselves checking in again the next morning! ’Senior, seniors, ” chant Midnight Rider members Julie Wickell and Gabi Tomacic.

Ann now realizes that school is a great place for meeting other people. 298 Checking Out Being the end of the day, junior Mindy Grossberg receives a kiss from ex-student Eric Schulman. Departure time often means not seeing friends until the next day. It’s time to tango! Elyse Decker and Amy Cho share the last dance of the evening together.
