We dedicate this 1959 Reverie to

it. These pictures are only a few

their free time to help others. Among the many duties they per-
form are helping students get reference material from books,
pamphlets, and magazinesg finding books for pleasure readingg

Contributing to community culture as well as school culture, the
mixed choir began the year by taking part in the Thanksgiving and
Reformation Sunday Services of Normal. The performances of both
sacred and secular numbers in the winter and spring music concerts
helped highlight the year, and as the mixed choir also took an active
part in the State Music Contest, they offered substantial salesman-
ship in the "World's Finest Chocolate Sale." Besides the entry of the
mixed, boys', and girls' choirs in State Contest, many vocal soloists
and ensembles participated and did a fine job in both District and
State Contests. Officers for the girls' choir were as follows: Presi-
dent, Judy Wasson, Vice President, Janet Stoltz, Secretary, Phylis
Patton, and Librarian, Becky Chance.
Boys' choir officers consisted of the following: President, Dave
Speersg Vice President, Jo Mar Alwesg Secretary, Bruce Otto, and

Under the able direction of Mr. Duncan Miller, our band
completed another successful year, partly in providing musical
entertainment for football and basketball games, and leading our
Homecoming Parade through Normal. Participating in I.S.N.U.'s
Homecoming Parade and annual band contest, our band placed second
in Class A competition. Contributing to the cultural life of the
school, the 110 members of the band played a part in both the winter
and spring music concerts, besides taking part in the Unit Band Con-
cert in April. A necessary factor in the fund-raising for sending the
band to State Music Contest at Rock Island this year was the success-
ful sale of the World's Finest Chocolate, which required considerable
work on the part of both band members and the Music Boosters' Club.
Officers for the year were: President, George Southgateg Vice
President, Terry Huffg and Secretary, Janet Stoltz.

Girls' Glee Club
This year's Glee Club, composed of seventy freshmen and sopho-
more girls, finished the musical year with the Spring Concert. These
girls met twice a week for practice and joined the Mixed Chorus and
Girls' Chorus for special events such as concerts and a contest. This
year the officers included: Janet Griffin, President, Judy Keith, Vice
Presidentg Arlene Sutter, Secretaryg and Rita Mentzer, Librarian. The
Glee Club had three fine accompanists: Rita Mentzer, Eileen Baird,
and Judy Franke.

The Student Council, a representative government of the student body, was under
the leadership of the very competent officers, Bill Kirby, President, Gary Stephens,
Vice-President, Bob McDonald, Executive Board Member, Marlene Roy, Secretaryg
Frank Wanto, Treasurer, and R. E. Diveley, sponsor.
Soon after the school term begins, several students are nominated in each home-
room as possible representatives to the Council. Several days later, after the students
have had time to consider the abilities and characteristics of each nominee, a final
election is held. The duty of the student elected is to represent his homeroom in
thought and action at each Student Council meeting.
Student Council has sponsored many activities and projects throughout the year.
Among them are the Welfare Drive, picture packets, skating project, in conjunction
with A.N.S., upkeep of the premises, aiding the freshmen in becoming acquainted, and
the promotion of better school spirit and good attitude. Activities outside our school
consist of membership in the Champaign District Association of Student Councils, the
Illinois Association of Student Councils, and the intercity Student Council.
The members of the Council, as well as those students serving on the various com-
mittees, did their utmost to carry out and uphold the purposes, ideals, and high standards
of the Student Council.

The purpose of the student court is to uphold the principles of good conduct
about the school.
Permanent members for the year were Judge, Ray Roppg Co-secretaries,
Janet Nardin and Jackie Vance, Herb Sieg, Harlan McBumey, and Dorothy
Zaiss. The rest of the court consisted of two boys and two girls from each
class chosen by the permanent members and Mr. Gene Masters, Advisor.
Meeting every Friday during the sixth hour, the court interviewed the of-
fenders sent to the court by the student monitors.
Rotating weekly, seven groups of monitors, six students per group, ably
kept order in the halls and cafeteria. These monitors issued tickets to any
student violating the rules established by the court.
Academ of Natural Science
The purpose of the Academy of Natural Science is to promote a student's interest and ap-
preciation for the various sciences. I
The officers, who did an excellent job in managing the business matters of the group, are
as follows: President, Jo Mar Alwesg Vice President, Jim Gee, Secretary, Gloria Cushmang
Treasurer, Paul Bockhorst, Historian, Judy Freese, and Sponsor, Mr. Diveley.
The membership consists of only students sincerely interested in science. This year a new
requirement, writing a research theme in some field of science, was added to the application
form. The initiates are then selected from the group of applicants by a committee.
The fall initiation, concessions, a newspaper summary of the year's events, and the holly
and mistletoe sales, promoting the Christmas spirit, were among the Club's annual events, also
on the Club's agenda was a field trip to Sangamo Electric Company, Pillsbury Mills, and the
state buildings at Springfield. Each year the A.N.S. has several programs with guest speakers,
sometimes open to all science students.

This year 's Reverie used a mathematical equation in its theme.
In their attempts to develop an outstanding edition of the yearbook,
Linda Patient and Mary Fike, Co-Editors, were assisted by Nancy
Pitts, Business Managerg Pat Burr, Subscription Managerg Terry Huff,
Layout Editor, Dorothy Zaiss, Literary Editorg and Don Mekkelson,
As the year progressed, such expressions as "crop two by four" and
"bleed those pictures" became second nature to the busy layout
workers. The literary staff learned how to construct good journalistic
writeeups, and other members learned how to proofread type, take
pictures, and identify persons. Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Ham-
merlund, the active staff worked two hours after school every Monday
and Wednesday to make this year's Reverie outstanding in every

The programs of the various meetings proved to be very inter-
esting. During the Christmas party, the pinata was hung, swung at,
and broken. For the enjoyment of everyone the contents that spilled
provided all with a treat. Highlighting the rest of the year was the
Spanish Fiesta on April 13 and the Roman Banquet on April 27.

donate ten dollars to a most worthy cause, CARE.

The Playhouse Dramatics Club had another busy and successful
year. Not only did the members work behind the scenes, but also
received experience in acting. Any type of work done in the Dra-
matics Department counts toward points for Thespian membership.

ton, Secretaryg and George Southgate, Treasurer served as officers.
Miss Colene I-loose sponsored the club.

coming float, "Norma1 Cuts Up," won the best organization float award. The fall play THE FAMILY
NOBODY WANTED, provided an enjoyable evening of entertainment. Later in the year a successful
rummage sale added to the many projects of Troupe 613. During the Christmas season the club pre-
sented to the student body the play, "Why the Chimes Rang." In March several students participated in
the contest play and individual events. Besides sponsoring the annual winter formal, "F1ower Drum
Fantasy," members spent an unforgettable week-end in Chicago where they saw several plays.

Practicing diligently by running 1.9 mile
races quite often, the "Harriers" did their best
to make this year's team one which the school
could be proud of. Since Tom Davison will be
the only member not retuming next year, the
team should make a fine showing. The capable
coach was Mr. Gene Masters.

With a record of Three wins, seven losses, and one tie, the golf
team completed its first successful season in several years. Ranking
third in the Corn Belt Conference, the golfers defeated Washington
twice and U-High once, and tied one match with Clinton. David
Norris, Roger Sorg, Dave Adams, Craig Ewald, and Dave Conklin
were awarded golf letters. Although seniors Roger Sorg, Paul Bock-
horst, and Dave Johnson are leaving the squad, Coach Ferree is con-
fident that next year's golfers will develop more skill and compile a
more impressive record than did this year's players.

Dramatized by Christopher Sergei from the book by Helen Grigsby Doss
Produced by National Thespian Society
Directed by Colene Hoose
November 14, 1958
This year the fall production was the delightful
story of the famous international family featured in
Life magazine, the Christian Advocate, and Reader's
Digest, as well as in a television spectacular. In the
play version, the trials and tribulations of the young
minister and his wife, who adopt seven children of
different nationalities, were presented with warmth
The cast and crews enjoyed giving this unusual
play as did the large audience seeing it. Much
credit was due the fine cast for their sympathetic
portrayals of the characters, special recognition was
due to the makeup crew for a terrific job of trans-
forming American students into Nordic, Hawaiian,
Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Korean, and Filipion

Chez Pa ree
Initiating the events of the evening, guests, formally
attired, attended the banquet. After a most appetizing meal
an I.S.N.U. professor showed colorful slides of France.
Toastmaster, Jon Washburn, presented Ray Ropp, junior class
president, who extended an invitation and welcome to the
senior class president, Herb Sieg. Herb cordially expressed a
note of appreciation to the juniors.
The mood of romance was enhanced by the music of
Walt Loftis and his orchestra. Alluring fragrance of bouquets
added to the continental atmosphere. Creating the aura of
the theme, " Chez Paree," the lighting effects and Parisian
decorations blended well together. The traditional crowning
of the king and queen highlighted the evening. Made-
moiselles and monsieurs enjoyed an evening of provincial
gaiety and memorable good times.

Dramatized by Anne Coulter Martens from the book by Graeme and Sarah Iorimer'
Produced by Playhouse Dramatics Club
Directed by Colene Hoose
May 1, 1959
"Stag Line" has been called by critics "a rare
sort of comedy." The authors, Graeme and Sarah
Lorimer, "have a knack of catching the sub-deb off
guard, and presenting her with all her foibles and
irresistible magnetism, to her own generation ac-
cording to the "Ladies Home Jouma1" which origin-
ally published a series of the now famous "Maudie"
stories, from which this play has been dramarized.
The "New York Times" makes the following com-
ment: "The amorous experiments, triumphs, and
misadventures of the youthful heroine are un-
failingly diverting." It is seldom that lighthearted
fsometimes hilariousj writing about young people
achieves such substantial critical backing.

Senior Class History
We, as freshmen, electing Roger Sorg, President, Bob McDonald, Vice-President, Judy Wasson, Sec-
retary, and Judy Freese, Treasurer, began the seemingly long, difficult years of pursuing knowledge.
Janet Nardin, an outstanding figure in our class, was not only a member of the varsity cheerleading
squad, but was selected as queen candidate of the Normal Relays. Jeanette Bryant and Jackie Vance
showed their leadership qualities by being Secretary of Girls' Glee Club and junior varsity cheerleader,
The magazine sale highlighted our sophomore year with Roger Sorg and Janet Nardin, co-chairmen
of the sale. At that time we had an unsurpassed record for the number of magazines sold. The fact that
our float won first in the homecoming parade proved that ours was a class not to be underestimated.
Again a nominee for Relay Queen, Janet Nardin was chosen co-queen. Pam Anderson, Janet Nardin, and
Jackie Vance, as varsity cheerleaders, and Judy Hartupee as a junior varsity cheerleader, vigorously
promoted school spirit at games. Dave Anderson served as President of the Band, and Judy Wasson served
as President of the Glee Club. The officers who directed this year were Bob McDonald, President, Jim
Huber, Vice-President, Dave Speers, Secretary, and Dorothy Zaiss, Treasurer.
In the fall of 1957, we started our junior year by electing an all-male slate of officers headed by
President, Bill Schenfeldt. Other officers were Frank Wanto, Vice-President, Dave Speers, Secretary,
and Jerry Hoffman, Treasurer. Janet Nardin, Jackie Vance, Pam Anderson, and Judy Hartupee did much
to improve school spirit as varsity cheerleaders. Juniors serving as presidents of organizations were Bob
McDonald, Pep Club, Carol McBurney, F.H.A., Harlan McBurney, Boys' Choir, Bruce Otto, Band, Phylis
Patton, Girls' Glee Club, and Gary Stephens, F.F.A. Just before Thanksgiving we received those little
bands, our class rings, which denoted our stature. Winter saw Phylis Patton and Bill Schenfeldt crowned
queen and king of the winter formal, "Moonlight Masquerade." Committees for the Junior-Senior Din-
ner Dance worked diligently as spring drew near. Spring's arrival brought the Normal Relays, and Janet
Nardin was nominated as a queen candidate for the third year. ln her capacity as an attendant she
presented medals and ribbons to the winners of several events. Also with the advent of spring came the
Junior-Senior Dinner Dance, "Hawaiian Paradise." Acting as master of ceremonies, Gary Stephens
introduced the nominees for prom king and queen, Dave Blunk, Bob McDonald, Bill Kirby, Bill Schen-
feldt, king, Herb Sieg, Dorothy Zaiss, Janet Nardin, Jackie Vance, Phylis Patton, and queen, Sherrill
At long last the much anticipated year had arrived. Chosen as qualified leaders of our class were
Herb Sieg, President, Frank Wanto, Vice-President, Sue Lohnes, Secretary, and Jerry 1-loffman, Treasurer.
President, Bill Kirby, vice-President, Gary Stephens, and Executive Board Member, Bob McDonald, gave
their services as officers to the Student Council. Being traditionally in charge of the Homecoming
Dance, the seniors, using the theme "Fall Fantasy," hired Toby Davidson's Orchestra to complete the
autumnal atmosphere. Elected as queen, Jackie Vance and her court: Janet Nardin, Sherrill Moberly,
Phylis Patton, and Mary Lou Thompson reigned over the dance. As evidence of our abilities, we again
captured first place in the class float division. Proficient officers leading various organizations were
Linda Patient and Mary Fike, co-editors of the Reverie, Judy Freese, President of Honor Society, Melanie
Cade, President of Thespians, Tim Smith, President of Dramatics Club, Phylis Patton, President of Girls'
Choir, Jo Mar Alwes, President of A.N.S., Tom Ochs, President of l.A.T.A., Leonard Sigler, President of
Projectionist Club, Carol McBurney, President of G.A.A.g Frank Wanto, President of "N" Club, Gim Gee,
President of Pan Lingua, and Robert Colvin, President of Camera Club.
In spring our thoughts tumed to the senior picnic, Baccalaureate, senior breakfast, and commence-
ment. These events terminated four memorable years of study and frolic.
