CLEVELAND A. THOMAS For his swell personality and ever-ready sense of humor, For the boundless energy which he has expended on us in our efforts, And for the way in wliich he has made us think, We, the class of 1946 With many thanks Dedicate Our " MIRROR " To " The Little Dynamo " JULIA B. CHILDS It is with deep regret that the school this year hids farewell to one of its oldest and most faithful friends, Mrs. Childs. To every class since 1919, when the school was founded, she has given of her rich store of wisdom, and has earned the love and respect of all. As hoth Latin teacher and Dean of Girls, she has directed our interests and widened our outlook. Thus we feel that, in losing her, we are losing an integral part of the school, and that her place will not easily he filled. Although she may retire from active participation in school life, the influence of her vital personality cannot fail to live on in t he hearts of all those who have known and worked with her. The whole school joins in expressing our appreciation for everything she has done for us during the long span of time she has been with us, and in wishing her happiness in the years to come. -hreculd of I . .3.

" " What makes you seem so very sad? " the frightened Juniors cried. " We ' re dreading what we know will come, " the faculty replied, " For the Seniors they are going, and the Juniors, they will come, " To head our school they will advance with wads of chewing gum, " With their dubious past recorded, and it seems too had to some, " That these Juniors will he Seniors in the morning. " " What makes the lower classmen groan? " the baffled Juniors said. " They ' re dreading future tyranny, with you right at their head. " " What makes the Freshmen quiver? " the Juniors do exclaim. " They know your lunch-line management, and fear you ' ll do the same " When the school is in your power, when you are at its head. " Many members of the faculty will wish that they were dead. " North Shore indeed is falling down, " the faculty has said, " If these Juniors will be Seniors in the morning. " 26 1946 — JUNIOR DELINQUENTS — 1946 27 Top row— P. Noble, S. Head, T. Butz, N.

It began in September of " 45 " ; Hardly a teacher is now alive Who forgets that famous month and year. We study as little as we can each day, And come late afternoon we must play Basketball which in winter is king, Football in autumn, baseball in spring. And on the weekends our parties hold sway. About our dances I ' ll now recite: Shapes in the lanternglow, the band in the light; Chinese pictures adorn the walls; Cokes and doughnuts to tempt us all; While the cbaperones sit through a long, dreary night. Listen, my children, and you shall learn That it pays the mid-night oil to burn. Those final exams are plenty tough! If you get out your bi-focals and do your stuff, We ' ll all be juniors when we return. ( Sophomores poem I 28 EL SLICKO 29 Back row — P. Steinwedell, K. Montgomery, N. Ferris, B. Adams, B.

You have left all your weapons behind you. You are helpless. Now, finding your prayer-stool, you kneel before it, watching out of the corner of your eye the priestly figure. Dead faced he walks stiffly down the aisle, passing out the blue " prayer " ' books. You think you see behind the masklike face a slight leer as he hands you your fate in a blue cover. Now you are all alone. You read the first sentence of the catechism and bow your head in thought. As your past sins appear before you, a tear falls between the pages. . . . The fellow sufferer on your right is staring at the ceiling and mumbling inaudibly. You also stare at the ceiling, but there is no help there. You are alone to pay for your sins. . . . Memories form, but not the ones you are searching for — memories of our part in the vaudeville, the Opera, and especially the Christmas play; our victories and losses in sports; also the trips we took, and the parties. Then suddenly the person in front of you finishes his last words and, closing his " prayer " book, gives it triumphantly to the scowling priest. As his footsteps die away, you struggle to your feet and stumble down the aisle. Now you know there is a leer on the priest ' s face as you hand him the little blue " prayer " book. You stagger out into the sunlight and freedom ; and towards next year ' s sopho- more sins. SPEARMENT INCORPORATED 31 CANDID BE TRUE? 32 Chapter 111 i F WMW WALLING- ELIOT Back row — S. Wynns, N.

Sonny and his cute little glasses, Nancy Jones shuts up in classes. THE END. 7th Kjracle DREAM OF 1975 As I sat in my house by the fire reading, I slowly dozed off to sleep. I awakened suddenly to find myself in the assembly at school. I looked around expecting to see Priscilla Mudge, who usually sits next to me, only to see an elderly person by my side. Glancing around, I noticed that everyone was grown up. I saw in a far corner of the room a man who looked like someone with whom I had gone to school. I couldn ' t quite place him in my mind. I knew it loked like Tom Prichard. I leaned over and placed my finger on someone ' s shoulder. I said, " Could you please tell me if that is Tom Prichard? " " Yes it is, " was the reply. " He is a famous lawyer, one of the best, I hear. " I looked around still further only to see someone who reminded me a lot of Jack Kearns. Turning again to the elderly lady beside me, I said, " That ' s Jack Kearns, isn ' t it? " " Yes, Mr. Kearns is the president of the Santa Fe Railroad. " Turning in the direction of Mr. Kearns, the elderly lady said, " Sitting on his right is Laurie Becker, manager of the Cubs, and that ' s Paul Jeffris; he ' s a big time banker. " I looked again to be sure I wasn ' t dreaming. Could that man be Paul Jeffris, the harum- scarum boy I knew in seventh grade? " See that lady over there with the cute little girl with the pig-tails? That ' s Mrs. Richardson, used to be Elizabeth Jones. Let ' s see, who else was in that 1946 class? " I named Franny Blunt, Byron Campbell, Nona Everhart, Calvin Selfridge, Nancy Noble, Audrey Lawrence, Dodie Booth, Ann Murray, Fifi Nolz " I ' ll tell you about them. You know they allow women jockeys now, and Franny Blunt, Audrey Lawrence, and Ann Murray were the first ones. By the way, Fifi Notz is a woman jockey, too. Arthur Murray died a number of years ago, and Byron has stepped into his shoes. He has large classes which he instructs in dancing. Nona Everhart is now modeling for Brenda Starr. Cal Selfridge is married and has two children. By the way, what has happened to Priscilla Mudge? " " She is a lady senator. She ' s in Washington doing very well at her job. By the way, don ' t you recognize me? " " Yes, I do now. Aren ' t you Miss Gillett, our seventh grade teacher? " " Yes, certainly I am. Those were tough days, " said she with a twinkle in her eye. " By the way, have you seen Sara Packard? She ' s showing off her new rank of boatswain. " Suddenly there was a loud crack from the fire, and I awoke with a start. It had all been a dream, and this was really 1946, and tomorrow was school. Pris Mudge was coming up the walk. Back row— C. Selfridge, L. Suter, J. Kearns, M. Royer, F. Blunt, A. Lawrence, F.

At the end of the season the girls played the boys in a game of hockey. The girls were defeated by the score of 2 to 0. During the Christmas vacation a group of girls gave a skating party, at the Indian Hill Country Club, which we all enjoyed. The girls gave Miss Ingram, our home room teacher, a plant for her desk. In the beginning of the year we all took a science trip to the beach to hunt for interesting stones. Now we are planning the operetta of Hansel and Gretel with Miss Levin, our music teacher. The Middle School had a basketball league. The sixth grade was in it. The team went along well. Now the baseball season is here. We are sure all the boys and girls have enjoyed sixth grade and their first year in the Middle School. Back row— B. McGiveran, T. Clark, J. Glaser, G. Getz, T. Haven, D. Cleveland, T. Potter, J.

Thank you very much for your nice Christmas card. Many things have happened since you have left. We gave the Lincoln Play which was the story of Lincoln from the day he was horn until the famous Gettysburg Address. We learned about a lot of history and Lincoln. We had a little trouble at school with cap guns, so to solve the problem we went to the Winnetka Police Station. Chief Bowers said " A law isn ' t made unless there is a reason. " We learned that a powder burn is very serious. Then we read the law and found out that any explosives are not allowed to be shot off in Winnetka. We gave a skit about it, and the trouble seems to be over. When we found out about the trouble in Europe, we decided to help. We are giving part of our weekly allowances to help pay for Johan Druger ' s ex- penses. It takes $96. We got so interested in Holland we have made very interesting books and maps and many facts.

One of the things I liked best was when we studied about pre-historic animals. We made a mural about it which everyone helped to paint. It showed how the earth was formed from the time of volcanoes up to the dinosaurs. One day we went to the Winnetka Library. The librarian took us down to the Story Hour room and read us a story. We went to the fire-house too. The fire chief told us how to prevent fires. We saw where they slept, and we found out what the duties of the firemen were. We read a lot of books about George Washington and then made our own play. We called it " The Making Of The First Flag. " Another play we gave was a play called " The Gingerbread Man. " After the play we had gingerbread boys to eat. Our grade is very interested in foreign lands. We are studying about Green- land. We painted a mural about Greenland and put it in the hall outside our door. On March twentieth the whole class went to the Field Museum. We bad lunch there, and saw many of the animals we had studied about. Seated- ted — J. Sears, J. Blunt, R. Lowry, D. Shapiro, J. Kirkpatrick, J. Atwood, A. Harriet, T. Greenough, L.

First we had a rahbit who was the son of Thumper, the rabbit we had in the Second Grade. This baby was horn on July Fourth, and that is why we named it " Firecraker. " We have goldfish, and we found that algae formed in the bowl. So we found a science book that would tell us about a balanced aquarium. We bought water-plants and snails to keep the water clean, and we planted them in sand from Bert ' s beach. We have made several plays — some for Morning Ex and some for ourselves. We made the play for Valentine ' s Day with the First Grade. This year we started spelling for the first time, and we are making dic- tionaries of words we need to know. We have been writing stories, and we have been illustrating them. We have been reading a lot of interesting books, and we have a library of our own. Sometimes some of us read stories to the Kinder- garten children. We have had a lot of science. In the fall we learned how plants get ready for next year. They make buds that will open in the spring. Some buds, like the horse chestnuts, are sticky, to keep the birds away. We found galls on some branches, and we found leaves that bugs had eaten so that only the veins are left. We have examined many things under the microscope. We have used mag- nets, blown glass, tested foods with iodine to find starch, and experimented witli litmus paper. We are keeping a notebook of all the science experiments that we have made. We grew narcissus bulbs in stones, and we planted geranium slips in soil and they have blossomed. We have experimented with growing vegetables in water and in soil. We like the third grade. Back — Osborn, Graves, Colton, Atwood, Selz, Hines.

" Cotton tail " was our rabbit. " Smelly " was our mud turtle, and Nancy brought more than twenty fish for our aquarium. We learned many things about Indians, especially the ones that used to be around Winnetka. We found out how the people lived long before the Indians. They were " Tree Dwellers " and " Cave Dwellers. " We made a movie about them. At Christmas time we went " carolling, " and after Christmas vacation we began " Spelling. " " Spelling " is fun. We built a store from orange crates and covered them with paper. We painted the paper like red bricks. We brought empty food boxes and cans to sell. We took turns being " Store Keeper. " Each of us has a purse with paper money in it. We made a movie about the story of food. We opened a cocoanut, grated it, and made cocoanut cookies. We had a party and showed the movie to the First Grade. We shared our cookies with them. We are watching the birds as they come back and are making pictures and poems about them. I love when the robins come back in the spring. They hop and they chirp and they sing. Their eggs are so blue, shining and new; Soon they ' ll hatch and be big robins too.

One morning we had a surprise. Mr. Turtle came up. We said, " Mr. Turtle went down, down, down. Mr. Turtle came up, up, up. " He wanted to swim. He wanted to eat. He wanted to play. He wanted to play with us. We put him on the rug. He crawled here and he crawled there. Then he crawled under Mrs. Kratz ' s desk. 41 Short Table— Gilbert, Weif, Penfield, Fitzgerald, Copeland.

J inderaart 3 The following are the remarks of the children of the senior kindergarten on heing told that they could say anything they wanted to he put in the school yearbook. They have not been changed in any way. We hope our narcissa bulbs bloom soon. We have a rabbit town — school, churches, water towers, diving board, a pond, with streets and houses for the ducks and bunnies. We spread out pl ain paper on the floor and paint long trains, real stream- liner trains and freight trains too! We paint pretty pictures for our room and some to take home, too. We opened up a cocoanut one day, and it was big too! Then we all ate some at juice time, too ! We like to play with blocks and make nice buildings — garages, factories, boats, and towers, and even the Empire State Building!! Our little hampster, Snowball, sleeps in his cage and makes tunnels. He washes his face with his paws and stuffs his cheeks with sunflower seeds! 42 sTr. Jsinde eraarCen L V Four year olds express themselves with unique spontaneity. You can actually hear their vocabulary increase from day to day. Because the advancement is so fast, their expressions are often quaint. Here are a few samples of f our year old conversation from the Junior Kindergarten. D. is eating snow. B. " Don ' t eat that dirty snow or you will get a horrible germ on you! " E. sitting on the floor, unwilling to put on wrap. F. ' " Why don ' t you use your brains? " G. Comes over and looks at E. searchingly. " I don ' t see any brains on him at all. " C. " My friend goes to Faith, Hope, and Charity. " D. " Are you a Catholic? " C. " No, I am only a Junior Kindergartener. " A. " I have been to church. " B. " Did you sing in church? " A. " No, only Jesus was singing. " Back — Hales, Wilcock, Murdock, Gray, McGiveran, Kearns, Kearns, Hoebel, Veeder, Hamm, Rogers.

Obvious to see, it is an entirely democratic organization, elected by the free vote of the whole high school. Perhaps accompanying its extreme democracy, comes the fact that it is rather a lackadaisical one. We really MEAN to be parliamentary, but seem to find it just as efficient to sprawl on our chairs and be natural. The purpose of council is to take care of any special problems that may come up, to pay for referees, umpires, etc., and to generally keep the school in hand as far as that is possible for any organization. Council serves as co-ordinator of various sub- sidiary committees in the school. Every year, it puts on a stupendous show, the vaudeville. The money it earns from this, together with that gained in taxation of money -making concerns, it puts into war bonds, athletics, and anything it deems worthy. Beyond all that, it simply meets and fills everyone full of dignity and well-being. Elections are held at the beginning of the year — only Seniors eligible for the higher offices — and at the mid-year, when the Juniors are allowed to take the reins. This year, as always, the Juniors are filled with a highly commendable holy zeal to re-vamp the constitution, which seems without fail to fall into a state of rack and ruin in the interim from Junior to Junior. Could it be that Juniors are invariably missionary, and seniors blase? Ah, no! In closing we would like to say that the main point of a student government is to make itself unnecessary by making the school so conscious of the few unavoidable laws that any law-making body is rendered superfluous. We feel that every year North Shore comes nearer to this objective — and now that we are leaving we expect it to be immediately achieved. fr iirpie an d ' WL Ite The ' 45- ' 46 " Purp " was headed hy Judi Campbell and Bill Bartholomay. Phyllis Babb was the Business Manager for the first half of the year, followed by Wendy Smith, both of whom handled a difficult job excellently. Mary Jane Carlson took over the advertising end, preceding Pat Patterson. The paper reflected the work of its managers, and the cooperation of the large staffs with them produced what we all think to be one of the outstanding papers in the school ' s history. This year the " Purp " has been notable for several new editorial ideas, a much enlarged size, bi-weekly editions, an Editorial Staff nearly twice the size of former staffs, an addition of a Business Staff which has been unusually smooth running, and a surplus of money. The editorial ideas referred to above are numerous. " Writer ' s Cornered, " a column or more of poems or stories by the high school, which proved very popular because it unearthed some terrific literary talent ; " In the Spotlight, " a series of faculty biographies usually ac- companied by a picture; humorous articles lay the faculty; an occasional column about the Middle School; a full page of sports, and the " Peregrinating Press. " In March questionnaires were circulated which asked for suggestions and criticism. Many replies stated that the " Purp " was too serious, and since, more humor and pictures have been included. The Editors, a slig ht foam noticeable about the mouth as the result of too many midnight " dummying " sessions, wish to thank the school for their con- structive criticisms and for the interest they have taken in the " Purp. " To keep the future " Purps " varied, pertinent, and interesting to the whole school, it is hoped that the Freshmen and Sophomores will next year make up a larger percentage of the staffs. _ r cipellci pi A Capella is North Shore ' s outstanding (or so we like to term ourselves) group of female singers, very ably conducted by Ramsay Duff, the head of our music department. Since it is an entirely extra-curricular activity, with only the last half of lunch period as its practice time, the girls are very grateful to Mr. Duff for thus giving up his valuable time. Giving performances is one of the most important functions of A Ca pella and we fondly believe we bave built up a fine reputation as professional (again you find us dreaming) singers. This year we sang before numerous clubs, at Fort Sheridan, and participated in a beautiful service at the Synagogue in Glencoe. As in the past, any money that we earn is sent to the Master Records Company, which in turn sends records to the far-flung branches of the service. The organization of A Capella is, we believe, unique. It was started in 1942 by a group of girls who were especially interested in music, and though Mr. Duff does all the training and directing, it is run by the girls, who have not only the power of deciding whether or not they wish to continue, but also of picking their own new members to fill in vacancies left by graduating classes, and even of ousting people if occasion demands. This year three new girls were chosen, and in spite of the fact that they had a lot to learn in a very short time, by the vaudeville we had raised ourselves to our former standard — a standard that we are sure next year ' s A Capella will uphold. 48 BIRDS EYE VIEW OF HARVEST FESTIVAL AS SEEN BEHIND THE CAMERA LENS As the autumn sun tried valiantly to find its way through the threatening clouds, we found that we could hardly recognize this moh of hillbillies trudging purposefully around school in jeans and size fourty-four night shirts for the trim and sweet ( ? ) pupils of the day before. Yet we were here to work, and we were ready with all equipment from nail files to massive, terrifying saws. Soon all were off to their various jobs, which ranged from beautifying the school grounds to harvesting crops for unsuspecting farmers. With our cameras slung on our backs and films bulging in our pockets, we set out to catch the laborers unawares and record memories which would live on in posterity. Who could ever forget the sight of our classmates and faculty swinging merrily by their tails while pruning trees, or perched perilously on top of the baseball backstop with drooling paint brushes. Then there were the he-men who struggled under the weight of shovels supposed to be used for digging, or rakes for widening that well-known muddy school walk. Finally we bummed our way out to the squash field. There we found real toilers. At the sly beckoning of some leering " friends " we started to wade across the field. If that mud wasn ' t quicksand, we ' d like to know what it was. Later, back at school, a welcome lunch was consumed on the hockey field by all. At the end of the day, we felt we had accomplished something toward beauti- fying the school, but then we ' d better wait for spring and see if the shrubbery is still living before we make any rash statements. One thing it is safe for us to say, however, is that this year ' s Harvest Festival was well worth the Herculean effort if only for the produce, canned and otherwise, which we managed to glean and send to various nearby hospitals and charities. GENIUS AT WORK THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES At the beginning of the year, as inauguration of the Freshmen, the Seniors started off the season with a whizeroo of a Frosh-Senior dance. The figurative red carpet was unrolled, and, at least we seniors like to believe, a nifty time was had by all. Even though the senior boys each took two freshman girls, strangely enough they didn ' t seem to mind. With that smashing debut, the year could hardly help bringing other colorful dances. Three other pre-proms have graced the floor of the girls ' gym, all for that laudable purpose, fund raising. The first, given by the Juniors toward the prom, starred Teddy Glaser ' s rapid-fire jazz band, and was equally as much fun as the Frosh-Senior. The two others, both given by the Sophomores, were claimed to be for the prom, but some people seem to think that the eager- beaver Sophomores just like to go to dances and found that the easiest way. The rest of the school isn ' t complaining, all being of the same mind. At the first of these two, we had to content ourselves with a mere juke-box, but at the second our own alumni, Dick Batten, and his band supplied the music. All are looking forward with bated breath to the prom. Needless to say, it is going to be the Best Ever — as is every Junior prom to every Senior class. As a parting word from the Seniors on leaving, let us say that although we realize no dance could ever quite be the same without our scintillating personali- ties gracing the sidelines, we hope next year will bring bigger, better dances (we hasten to add, if possible) and more of them. As social exercise, we highly approve. SO WauSba ? ? The May Queen is coming. She ' s young and sheV fair With the sun on her face and her shining hair. Her heart is happy; her eyes are alight. And the May-pole is weaving Purple and While. The people are dancing. I see them now. The young girls curtsey and the young men how. They dance and scatter; they dance and swing. Around the May-pole They dance and sing. The long bright ribbons Weave in the air. They are woven to music with patterned care The people dance and the people go. And the May-pole patterns Weave and grow. And so it goes . . . May Day, and our Queen, Lee Holliday, with her two attendants Carla Esch and Dixie Greeley, spring and the seniors, we shall miss it all, and we shall not forget. SI H T " AN INMATE REPORTS ON LEICESTER HALL This year Mr. " Gadge " Thomas was tender, tender of the whip, with the ahle assistance of Mr. " Will " Talley and Mr. " Mouse " Eldredge, at Leicester Hall, the school ' s hoarding department for hoys. The inmates, as we jokingly re- ferred to ourselves, consisted of Bob " I hate women " Waller, who thinks he will render Charles Atlas insignificant with Bar hells; that man at the telephone who bounced in to liven t hings up at the half year, Derick Jones; the mad physicist, Chuck " Owl " Bacon, who kept us constantly confused proving that B stands for ( I-V2 c2 " V2 ' while explaining in Basic English Einstein ' s theory of relativity! Steven " Here ' s a bargain " Scott, who finally figured out how to get to Chicago on ten cents; Peter " Teddy Bear " Vail, that man who administers the " coup de grace " to all our Jokes; Dave " The Corn Is Green " Holies, the elite gentleman of the house whose claim to fame buds from his magnificent sense of humor; Tom " Senator " Vredenburgh, the continual filibusterer — We shall always remember those thrilling experiments of his on Sunday nights to find out whether or not his stomach was made of cast iron — and, last but not least, our friend who joined us at mid-year, that suave connoisseur of femininity, " Don Juan " Wynns. Among the most popular magnets of enjoyment were those exciting rallies at the ping-pong table trying to defeat " The Mouse. " A colorful collection could always be found at the " eighty-eight " keys trying to find the lost chord. Also the magnificent library of records to be found at Leicester created endless en- joyment for all. This may sound as if it comes from a catalogue, but we feel that the internal policy of living at Leicester consists largely of enjoying a happy, harmonious existence in the same atmosphere that one might find on opening the door of any home. When questioned as to its success, without exception we all categorically reply, " Yeah. " 52 a cipter V DRAMA STUPENDOUS SHOW HITS SMALL TOWN Ua u deuiiie The Vaudeville this year was designed with the idea of retaining the tradi- tional class acts yet tying them together with a running plot. We hoped that thereby we vary the usual procedure and provide a more connected entertain- ment for the audience. Each class worked on and produced its own act, and these acts served as part of a travelling vaudeville show which just happened to have stopped in this particular small midwestern town. The inhabitants of the town, and Jane, the star of the show, were the main characters, and about them the whole plot revolved. Because the story was definitely dated, the task of each class to find a skit which actually might have been in an 1890 production was not easy. They all came through with a bang, and many original and varied acts. The music for the show was provided by a series of songs from the Gay Nineties. With touching sentiment the village gossip reminded us that " She ' s More To Be Pitied Than Censured, " while pure and sweet Mary sang piteously, " Oh Father, Dear Father Come Home To Me Now. " The Vaudeville ended up on a cheery note with the chorus rendition of " Have A Smile " — and we hope that everyone did. Many thanks are due to those — and that is everybody — who worked both on stage and off. They did a swell job. To Mr. Duff ' s and Jamo ' s operetta-in- miniature, " The Safecrackers " ( obtained without royalties ) the greatest success and praise was forthcoming, and we certainly are greatful to Jamo himself, who stepped into the shoes of an ailing senior boy at the last moment. On the whole WE think it was a pretty good show. i nrldtmctd f lci y " My feet are cold. " " Are my wings straight? " " Your make-up is all smeared. " " You can ' t see through my costume, can you? " " Oh, be quiet! " With these notably un-angelic expressions, the heavenly host of angels took their stately places on the stage for the 1945 Christmas play. The scene opens on one of the hills outside of Bethlehem, where two shepherds are playing stick-toss. They go about their usual preparations for the night and are just about to go to sleep when a multitude of angels descends upon them and tells them that Christ is born in Bethlehem. Thus the Christmas story unfolds itself in all the old simplicity and charm, renewed this year by Mrs. Duff ' s approach and beautiful blank verse. To her and to Mr. Howard, an alumni of North Shore recently returned from the service, who so ably directed the Freshmen in their annual dramatic effort, many thanks are owed. The heavenly choir, as always, did itself proud, and it was with hardly a dry eye that the school and alumni retired to the vestibule to sing the traditional " Stille Nacht. " To many, this Christmas, our first in peace, was especially sacred. Mrs. Duff ' s play with its gospel of love, unity, and tolerance which through the ages has been as applicable to every human endeavor as it now is to ours, helped to make it so. 55 a era On March 21, 22, and 23 of this year, North Shore presented its annual opera. Our choice was " Ruddigore, " commonly known in the feverish, frantic days preceding its presenta- tion as " Bloody Gore. " A satire on stock melodrama, it contained an especially villain- ous villain, an unhelievably sweet and inno- cent heroine, and lots of " schmaltz! " The plot centered around " The Witch ' s Curse " on the Baronets of Ruddigore which com- pelled them to commit a crime a day or perish in inconceivable agony. But in the finale our hero, Robbin Oakapple ( alias Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd I , discovered a paradox to this terrifying curse, and the opera wound up with numerous passionate clinches. Although we are fully aware that we form- ulated the best cast that ever hit the North Shore stage, we are equally aware of the many thanks we owe. The production of " Ruddigore " would not have been possible without the help of the many students who worked as members of the stage, scenery, light, and makeup crews or without the coop- eration and help of the physical education de- partments. We want to give especial thanks to the mothers who worked so hard and faith- fully on the tedious job of costuming. An- other especial account of thanks goes to Mr. Howard, who gave so much of his valuable time to help us. As before, we owe Mr. Duff many more thanks than we could ever put into words. Without his patience and hours of hard work, " Ruddigore " could never have been the great success it was. His tireless effort and unend- ing perseverance were much appreciated by all of us, and we are deeply grateful to him. The opera meant long hours of work and rehearsal for all concerned. However, even had the opera not been a success, we all felt that the fun we had far outweighed the un- pleasant side of the task. The knowledge of its success and the experience of being part of it made " Ruddigore " something we shall always remember. Other fond memories will " float in our heads. " How could we ever forget Richard ' s " Huba-huba, " Rose Maybud ' s " Beho-o-o-o- old, " or Old Adams " frenzy of a boy four- teen, " Mad Margaret who killed the fly that went " pop, " Sir Despard who kept thunder- ing " Basingstoke, " or little Nannikin and Roddy Doddy, Zorah ' s " Who is the wretch? " Ruth ' s " big moments, " or the " corpse " of professional bridesmaids? All in all, the opera and all it has meant to us will long remain a pleasant memory. Al- though it would be well-nigh impossible for the opera of " 47 " or years following to sur- pass that of " 46 " , we wish all of you the best of luck and the greatest of successes in years to come.

They had read in their English course Rudolf Beiser ' s " The Barretts of Wimpole Street " and had enjoyed it immensely. The play deals with Elizabeth Barrett ' s escape from the tyranny of her home to happiness and love with her husband, Robert Browning. The main character portrayal of the play is that of Edward Barrett Elizabeth ' s warped and cruel father, utter master of his household. Aside from the invalid Eliza- beth and the vibrant Browning, who saves her from the unhealthy atmosphere of her home, there also appear Elizabeth ' s brothers and sisters, eight in all, and a few close friends. The play was given the nights of May 31st and June 1st. The casts were made up as follows: Elizabeth Barrett — Barbara Brueggeman and DeeDee Gregory; Edward Barrett — George Bunge and Dave Burgoon; Robert Browning — Bob Waller; Henrietta Barrett — Barbara Favill and Heath Williams; Bella Hedley — Mary Hall and Connie Chadwell; Arabel Barrett — Ann Jeffris and Phyllis Babb; Wilson — Lee Holliday and Zan Griselle; Octavius Barrett — Lyman Hull; Captain W. Surtees Cook — Jim Keller; Dr. Chambers — Bill Barth- olomay; Dr. Ford-Waterlow — Theo Washburn; Henry Bevan — George Bunge and Dave Burgoon alternated with the role of Barrett. Five other Senior boys played the little seen Barrett brothers. The class feels that it was largely due to the tireless effort s of Mr. Smith, as Director, that the play made such a success, and wishes to offer him their greatest thanks. 58 laae t few This year the stage crew was organized under a faculty advisor and the shop department. The crew had three different parts. First was the regular crew ( composed of two and sometimes three hoys ) which took care of the daily morning exercises and short plays; second was the crew of two boys who cared for the lighting in the Vaudeville, Christmas play, and the Opera; third was the crew that assisted in the manufacture of flats and various kinds of scenery for the Vaudeville and Opera. This third crew contained the boys in the regular crew as well as extra boys who had volunteered for the job and had been granted permission by the Music Department t o join. The scenery for the Opera was first designed by the Art classes. The plans were then submitted to the shop teachers who went to work on them with their classes and the stage crew. After the scenery was completed, it was taken over by the Art people, who painted it. When it was all finished, the stage crew practised setting it up and switching the two sets, so that they would be ready for the performances. The stage crew is very thankful for the guidance and close co-operation of the faculty advisor, Mr. Livermore, and the Art, Shop, and Music departments. 59 Cndemble Every Thursday during eighth period the Music Room in Walling is the scene of action for the North Shore Country Day School Philharmonic Orches- tra. I will endeavor to give you a glimpse of this talented group in action. We come dashing up to the outside door of the music room and find it is locked, so we have to backtrack and go in by the other door. Once inside the music room, we nonchalantly start putting our instruments together, hoping that it will take so much time someone else will have to put the music stands and chairs in place: (let me advise any aspirants to this ensemble to take up the clarinet — it has more parts than the other instruments.) We are tuned up and seated, when we find that one of our members has left his music at home and won ' t be able to play. We wait tensely for Mr. Duff to raise his baton. Up conies the baton, out comes the music, and we ' re off to the tune of a lively dance We go along fine, that is, until it is discovered that someone is playing the wrong piece. After settling the question of which piece we ' re playing, we start again. We run through the piece a few times to get the brasses off the on-beat and on the off-beat on which they belong, and to give the violins and first clarinet a chance to perfect a cadenza. The period goes very quickly and soon it is time to take our instruments apart and put them in their cases. We ' ll meet again, in another week, at Walling and prepare for our next Morning Ex. or the Opera. 60 ( ka p ter VI SPORTS Top row — E.

Bottom row — Bunge, Waller, Eddy, Piehl, Anderson, Parker, Burgoon. u ardlii ootbail Pre-season practice started early in Sep- tember with twenty boys reporting to Coach Harritt. Because the opening game with Wheaton was coming up in three weeks, the squad buckled down to the serious task of conditioning. This year there was an innova- tion in the training, plays were given the first day of practice, and so, when the first game came, North Shore was prepared with a strong and varied attack. Wheaton took the field with a highly touted, but untried team on September 29, under warm blue skies. Wheaton elected to kick off, and the Raiders ran the ball hack to the forty yard line. After gaining little ground, the Raiders kicked, and the game became a punting duel. Early in the second quarter the Raiders found an opening and marched to a touchdown. This score was followed in the third period by another which was the result of the Purple ' s hard charging line, which blocked a Wheaton punt. From there on, it was just a matter of time until another talley was pushed over to make the score 13-0. Wheaton was unable to do anything with the ball, and so early in the last period the Purple scored their third and final touchdown of the day to bring the score to 20-0. The following week North Shore played the finest game of the season against Harvard on their field. The game started by North Shore receiving the ball. Not being able to do anything with it, North Shore punted. Harvard began by running the ends and gained great yardage. Then the Raiders let down for one play and a Harvard tackle ran 60 yards for a touchdown. The conversion 62 was not good, and the score remained six to nothing until the end of the fourth quarter when the Raiders scored on a short run fol- lowing two successful passes. The conver- sion was good and North Shore took the lead. Suddenly Harvard unleashed a lightning pass- ing attack and won the ball game 12-7, thirty- three seconds to go. Even though losing, North Shore played a hard fought game, probably one of the best in the history of the school. The third game of the season, against North Park, was a different story. The Raiders lacked the fight they had shown the previous week against Harvard. When our line once again blocked a kick and recovered the ball, North Shore missed a golden opportunity to score. That was as far as the Raiders got, and eventually the ball was lost on downs. In the second quarter North Park scored twice on passes to make the score 14-0. The same thing happened in the third period as North Park scored once on a pass and once on the ground. North Shore countered late in the game with a long pass and a short run, resulting in a score, but the damage was done, and the Raiders left the field on the short end of a 26-7 score. A week later the Raiders traveled to Todd, seeking to atone for their poor showing of the previous week. Todd controlled the ball for the first half and once penetrated to the five yard line, but an alert North Shore guard intercepted a poor pass and saved the day. In the second half, the Raiders started driv- ing, only to be stopped on the Todd four inch line. Demoralized after failing to score, the Purple let the Red and Yellow walk through them, up to a last minute hold. The game ended at a tie of 0-0. The next Saturday found Luther at North Shore. Luther was a newcomer on our sched- ule this year, and the Raiders were deter- mined to win the first game. The Purple outplayed and outfought their heavier op- ponents, although outweighed fifteen pounds per man. At the end of the first quarter, North Shore led 2-0. Luther then stiffened and intercepted a pass which they turned into a touchdown. Another score made the score 13-2 at the half. In the second half, the Raiders started strongly, and after a series of long end runs, made a touchdown. Luther was unable to do anything until they inter- cepted another North Shore pass which was turned into a touchdown after an excellent pass attack. This left the score at 20-8 when the game terminated. Although the score does not indicate it, North Shore played a fine game. In the second to last game, North Shore travelled to Latin to face their undefeated team, ultimately winner of the League title. Latin started out strongly with a hard run- ning attack. The Purple line countered by opening large holes in the Latin line, which enabled the backs to register three first downs in a row. However, that was as far as the Raiders could advance, and soon Latin con- nected witli a long pass, climaxing a series of short line smashes, which pulled the Pur- ple defense in close. The score at the half was Latin 13, North Shore 0. Early in the third period Latin put the finishing touch on the game with a third and last touchdown to make the scoreboard at the end of the game read 20-0, favor of Latin. Intense practice was held during the week previous to the Francis Parker game, which was to close our season. The spirit ran high when Parker took the field, but their big blue team was no t to be denied. Before the half was over they scored three times from their traditional double wingback formation. Be- fore the end of the game they had piled up a score of 34-0. It was just a case of spirit willing, but flesh weak. The boys owe a great deal to Manager Ernst Benkert and his staff of aide workers. Thanks and gratitude also go to our coaches, Mr. Harritt and Doc Anderson, who taught us to play good, hard football. Co-captains Chick Brashears and Bill Carroll were re- spected for their sportsmanship and ability to play the game up to the hilt as was Comer Plummer, next year ' s captain. We are sure that with all the returning material, the 1946 football season should see North Shore once more at the top. 63 SJ ro$h — S oph and t V fiddle S choo l 64 THE PURPLE SWEEPS (?)

They say that there is an organization at North Shore which gleefully meets every afternoon for a period of relaxation, alias hockey. This group, with happy smiles shining from all the bright little faces, is a miracle of collective co-opera- tion. As soon as the varsity squad was picked, there evolved, however, two types of hockey players; the girl who wracked her brain all day long to find an excuse logical enough to release her from the torments of physical exercise, and the girl who appeared with stick in hand to practice. The latter formed the first and second teams, both showing an exceptional amount of spirit this year. Part of it was due to the " tenth undefeated year " title that we had to uphold, and the rest to the keen interest that the whole squad had in the game itself. The objective was not only to win, but also to improve ourselves in form, sportsmanship, and team work. Our games, three in all, helped, although they were less in number than in former years. To develop these qualities, we challenged Francis Parker to a bloody duel. It turned out pretty well for both sides, as our first team won 3-0, and their second team won 2-0. Our next game was with Latin, a serious rival since the 66 early years of the school. They brought four teams, all of which we defeated. The last and most difficult struggle was with Ferry Hall, who surprised us with its strength. Though the second team lost 2-0, the varsity finally managed to come out on top with the narrow margin of 2-0. The season was not over, however, for the glamazons had challenged the hardy Aardvarks to a great battle. With a little pity on our part, the hoys managed to pull off a 2-2 tie. We were a changed team as we limped off that glorious stamping ground. The boys seemed to find it as hard to forget their football tactics as the girls to con- quer their fear of being unintentionally (of course) mashed. It was lots of fun, and we hope that the teams to come will keep up the tradition of so polishing off the year with a comical touch. We all want to thank Miss Jewett for her great help as a teacher and friend, and also Miss Wolsey, her assistant. They will, we ' re sure, have an eleventh undefeated year with Wendy Smith as spirited captain and Audie O ' Dell as efficient manager. Here ' s luck, you guys!

Uarsitu tAJasketbciil Under the tutelage of Mr. Harritt, this year ' s team reported for practice immediately after the football season had come to a close. So many boys turned out for the initial practice that it was necessary to cut some of the hope- fuls. The squad began scrimmaging hard because the opening game was barely three weeks away. On December 8, North Shore journeyed out to River Forest to engage Con- cordia. The Purple was highly keyed for this game because a North Shore team had never beaten Concordia in basketball. The first half was close all the way with the Purple holding a 19-15 lead. Tbe second half was bitterly contested, but North Shore managed to hold its four point lead and the game ended 42-38 in our favor. On Friday, December 14, the Raiders opened their home season with a night game against Luther Institute. This marked the first night game ever played at N.S.C.D.S. With an overflowing crowd on the sidelines, the Purple got off to an excellent start. At the end of the first period North Shore led 11-10. However, from this point, Luther ' s hot-shots began to hit the basket with numerous points. The contest ended with Luther on top 43-30. This game completed our pre-Christmas schedule. During vacation the team practiced hard against assorted alumni teams. The entire squad is very grateful to the alumni. On January 8, North Shore traveled down to the University of Chicago to play University High. The game was a thriller all the way and at the end of regulation time the teams were tied at 25 all. In the overtime period U. High outshot us and finally won, 31-27. The following Friday we played host to an excellent North Park team. The game was close all the way until the final minutes, when the Chicagoans pulled away to a 36-27 victory. Todd was our next opponent, and on January 19 we traveled to Woodstock to engage them. The game was closely contested throughout, but Todd event- ually triumphed, 29-26. On January 25, the Raiders met Christian in their gym. The score of the game was never in doubt from the beginning. North Shore built up a lead in the first half which it never relinquished, and the final score read 44-34. On February 1, we played host to Francis Parker. This was another close game which wasn ' t decided until the final minutes. Parker won out eventually 36-30. Rapidly following on the heels of the Parker game, we met Wheaton at Wheaton. This was probably the worst game a North Shore team has played in a good many years. The less said about it the better. Wheaton 42, North Shore 23. The remainder of the season was marked with thrilling victories over Har- vard and Latin, 34-33 and 49-34, respectively. These triumphs were very gratify- ing. The final two games were against an extremely powerful Milwaukee team. The scores were 57-44 and 73-35, in favor of Milwaukee. Although short on victories, the 1945-46 team never let down. They had great spirit and were always giving their best. We all feel sure that next year ' s team, under the leadership of Captain Ralph Harper and the excellent coaching of Mr. Harritt, will be a tough one to beat. Best of luck to them both.

After a few weeks ' intensive practice we started playing games with other schools. The first game was played against Francis Parker, in our hoys ' gym. This was the world premiere of our heautiful new electric scorehoard. The first team walked all over a disorganized Parker team, to achieve a smashing vic- tory of 32-4, and although the second team came up against harder opposition, they also came out on top, 34-29. The next game was at Roycemore, where we were not so successful. The first team was nosed out hy a speedy Roycemore team, 29-28, and the second team also lost, 28-20. In spite of the adverse scores, hoth games were well played. A few weeks later we traveled to Ferry Hall, to hattle them on their own court. The first team seemed unahle to get around the tall and speedy Ferry Hall guards and lost, 23-5. However, the second team managed to hold up its end and won easily, 25-16. The final contest was with Girls ' Latin, on their court. As usual, we were severely handicapped by the overhanging balconies, which make long shots impossible. Latin ' s first team, with phenomenal marksmanship, rolled up the imposing score of 44 to our 18. Thanks to many short and accurate shots by our second team forwards, the second team won, 32-18. On the whole, although the season was not a very successful one, it was a lot of fun. Here ' s hoping that next year ' s team will do better — Good luck ! Back row — Gregory. Babb, Hicks, Hull, W.

The following games constitute North Shore ' s schedule: April 19 — University High There April 20— Milwaukee C.D.S Here April 23 — Francis Parker Here April 27 — Wheaton There April 30 — Chicago Christian Here May 3— Luther There May 10— Harvard Here May 14 — Concordia There May 17— Latin Here May 18— Milwaukee There The outlook for the season is very bright. With nine lettermen returning from last year ' s squad, the team should have little trouble in finishing high up in the first division, if not at the top. At least the team will uphold North Shore ' s tradition of producing better than average ball clubs. With a squad of thirty boys, it is sure that there will be plenty of com- petition for the nine positions. This is a big squad compared to last vear ' s seventeen members, who finished the season in a tie for second place in the league. We are positive that the combination of timely hitting, flawless fielding, and dependable pitching will make the 1946 baseball team one of the best in the league.
