Jhe junior L iadd We, the junior class of nineteen hundred and forty-eight, feel obliged to extend our sincerest apologies to the unfortunate remainder of the student body, to the faculty, and to the parents. We realize that you, placed in competition with such a superior group, have not been given a fair chance. How could you have expected to outshine us in the Vaudeville, in looks, in sports, in prodigious intel- lectual achievements, and, last but not least . . . well ... in everything? In view of this fact we have felt it our charitable duty to allow a few members of the other classes to join A Cappella, Ensemble, and the various basketball, baseball, hockey, and football teams. In the Vaudeville our acts surpassed your unsuccessful, though earnest, endeavors. We are aware that you have struggled under these severe handicaps, and we wish to express not only our very sincere admiration for the herculean efforts you have nobly made to overcome these formidable obstacles, but also to extend our deepsst sympathy for your hopeless situation. Any more words would be superfluous . . . superfluous . . . superfluous . . . superfluous . . . superfluous. 28 JUNIORS— ELECTION EXPERTS 29 ! 1 ' i i.

He is approximately fifteen feet tall and weighs well over 500 pounds, because, don ' t forget, he is the whole class. He has faults, as does most everyone, but also he has many good points. Mr. Soph eagerly participates in school athletics and does quite well for himself. He is of average strength and is better coordinated physically than he is mentally. By that 1 mean he finds it hard to pull himself together and think things over with himself. Sometimes his mind wanders so much that he cannot even finish what he originally started out to do. Ahhhh! Don ' t think for a minute that this does not disturb Mr. Soph, because it does. By talking things over with himself he sees his faults, and then, because he is slightly ashamed, he takes steps toward correction of his shortcomings. Mr. Soph sometimes over-exercises his right to freedom of speech and is often bluntly reminded of it by his teachers and the upper classmen. Howsver, many times what he has to say is intelligent and worth listening to. It would not be exaggerating to say that Mr. Soph really " gets around " and holds his own with other classes. He also makes friends quite easily and adds his " two cents " to school activities. Last but not least, he has a twinkling open eye for the opposite sex, although you will seldom find him showing or admitting it because of his shyness. 30 " WISE FOOLS " 31 Back Row: Bradfield, Dallstream, Blunt, Kearns, Hardy, Dawes, Wallace, Bird, Payscm, Conrad, Selfridge, Lane, Olson, Chadwell.

Jhe jrreskman i lc add " Meeting come to order, " I said. " We all are here to discuss what the Freshman class has done in 1947 and hopes to do in 1948. " As you all know, we have attempted to entangle ourselves in the high school. The first thing we did was to give a Freshman party for the parents and students of the class to get everyone acquainted. That was a successful idea. Then, of course, came the Hallowe ' en Play given by the girls. After fat- tening the school on brownies, we decided that the play was a success. The time for Vaudeville rolled around. Our class had three different acts, " The Lonely Petunia, " " My Dearest Uncle Sam, " and a very humorous skit given by the boys. The latter was decidedly the best act in the show. " December brought the Christmas Play. Four angels generously lent their haloes, and even Gabriel himself (herself) appeared on the scene. " In the future, there isn ' t much we can do except keep what we ' ve been doing so far, and hope that in the near future our committee, The Freshman Outside Lunchroom Radiator Installators, will install a radiator. " Any more business? No? The meeting is adjourned.

We sent some food over, too. This year we have had more communication with it. The students have sent us letters, pictures, booklets, and other things. Mr. Rhodes has written them a few letters. Susan Mudge and Gretchen Veeder have written them a letter in French, with the help of Miss Cahill, our French teacher. During October we went around to lots of houses to collect odds and ends like yarn, needles, and thread. We sent them to our school, along with pencils and other school material. MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS ' HOCKEY This year the Middle School hockey squad was divided into two teams. The teams are called the Deltas and the Kappas. Nancy Piehl was captain of the Deltas, and Barbara Wham was captain of the Kappas. We played three games, two with Lake Forest and the other one with Skokie. We had the two main teams divided into four smaller teams, two from the Kappas, and two from the Deltas. Miss Ingram taught the Middle School team, and we think she did a very good job. 36 IKecit ecorciuon tL Most of the Middle School was redecorated during our last summer vacation. Let us take a tour to see what changes have been made. We go downstairs and enter the old S.S. room. We see that desks replace the tables of last year and that the whole room was painted. The far end is now an S.S. library. We leave this room and go into the Science room. We are amazed to see that it is larger than before and that the tables are now against the wall. As we leave this floor and go upstairs, we see that the halls have new wallboards and fresh paint. Last year ' s seventh grade room has been made into a sixth grade room, and both rooms on that floor have been painted. We go upstairs to the top floor. As we look to our left, we see that the old study hall has been divided into a smaller study hall and a seventh grade home room. To too it all off, we have a new roof.

We used to get out by 3 o ' clock, but now we stay until 3:45 or 4 o ' clock. In fifth grade we had Spelling, History, Arithmetic, and English in one room. In sixth grade we go to two different rooms in one morning. Our hours are longer than last year, but we have more gym time. This year is the first year we have played against any other school. It was fun playing against them, even though we did lose some- times. Perhaps the most important difference is that in Lower School we hardly ever did anything on our own and were nearly always with a teacher. Now we get to choose our own lunches, but we have to behave in line. MIDDLE SCHOOL BOYS ' SPORTS The fall sports of the Middle School boys consisted of football. We had two different teams: the Lights and the Heavies. The Lights played three games. They won two games and lost one. The Heavies played four games. They won two games and lost two. The Heavies were coached by Mr. Browne and the Lights by Mr. Steele. During the winter we were divided up into two groups. One group played basket ball on Mon- day and Wednesday for half the winter. They were attempting to learn the basic ideas of the game. The ot her group had other sports, such as soccer when weather permitted, volley ball, dodge ball, and indoor baseball with a big rubber ball. Their days were Tuesday and Thursday for half the winter. In the middle of the winter term we switched activities. In the spring we hope to have a good baseball team. We also hope to play games with other schools. 38 Jhe jriftn jrcide We have found out that it is fun to read books. Some of us just learned that this year, but some of us learned that before. If you want to start reading books, pick out an exciting book that is just hard enough to read, and you can ' t stop reading. You go on until the last page. Then you start another book about something you like very much, that is just hard enough, and you can ' t stop that book until the last page, and then you ' ve got started reading, and you go on reading and reading all the time. These are some of the books that started some of us off reading: Tobe. Tobe is a little colored boy in North Carolina. It ' s easy, but it has good pictures, and it tells about the life of Tobe ' s family. It is very good. Stewart Little, Homer Price, and Mrs. Piggle Wiggle are awfully funny. You laugh and you laugh and you don ' t know what is coming next. Every one should read them. The three books of The Moffets. They tell about the Moffet family. The children have so many funny experi- ences. Jane once got scared and hid in the bread box on the street and was found by a policeman. They are children our age. Sonny Elephant and Kari the Elephant are both stories about India. You learn a lot about India and elephants. Everyone should read both books. The Wilder Books. All five books tell the adventure and pioneering of this family. You can ' t wait to get the next book and the next book, and then you are sorry it ' s the last book. Paul Bunyan. The story is fanciful, but it makes sense. Paul Bunyan is a Wisconsin giant and he has a blue ox named Babe. She tipped over her drinking water that was in a tank, and it made the Mississippi River. That ' s how we got that river. He tells a lot of tales. Dr. Doolittle. He was an animal doctor and a medical doctor too. All the stories are so good. He lived with animals instead of people. The porcupine slept on the couch, the mouse in the piano. The dog dusted the house with his tail, and the duck cleaned the floor by eating up the crumbs. They had plenty of adventures traveling, too. It ' s good. I would like to be Dr. Doolittle.

The scene takes place on Mount Olympus. The gods are watching Phaeton drive the wing-footed horses. Mother Earth and Neptune, God of the Sea, are worried because Phaeton may burn the earth. Apollo is also there because he is anxious to watch his son. Apollo: Look, my son is having a hard time with the horses as the chariot climbs up toward noon- day. I hope he hasn ' t forgotten their names. Mother Earth: Jupiter, f think you should stop that boy from driving the chariot before something terrible happens. You should have told Apollo not to allow Phaeton to drive the sun chariot. Jupiter: But I was here on Olympus all the time while Apollo was doing that. By the way, Apollo, I don ' t understand why you did let that boy drive the chariot. You have told me many times that I couldn ' t do it. Apollo: Well, Great Jupiter, how could I break my oath? I had promised the boy he could have any wish. Mother Earth : I wish 1 could have gotten my hands on that boy. He would never have been allowed to do a thing like this if I had been there. Apollo: Look, my boy has reached the zenith. Neptune: But now comes the frightening part as he looks down that steep path into my sea! Mother Earth: Look there! He ' s losing control! The horses are running away! The chariot is driv- ing headlong into my earth! Oh, Great Jupiter, why should this fate come to my earth? What shall happen to my flowers, my trees, and all my people? Jupiter: Don ' t be afraid. Phaeton will get control again. 40 Jhe Jhird Ljra.de We are having a good time in the third grade. We want to tell you some of the things we are doing. We studied about the pioneers. We read books that were written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. We built a pioneer cabin in our room. We started a newspaper for the Lower School. The fifth grade has been putting stories in it, too. We named it the Thidirf because it sounds like third and fifth together. After Christmas we studied about birds. We started with winter birds. We are making a bird- feeding station in shop. We are going to put it near our windows so we can watch it. In January we decided to have a library. We brought books from home. We made pockets and pasted them in the books. We made cards, too, and we have a librarian. We thought it would be nice to let other people read our books.

Jne Second (tirade This year we are studying Eskimos. Just as the big snow came, we started thinking about Eskimos. Mrs. Harker is reading a story called The Eskimo Twins. We learned some new words. Here are the words. Kamiks are shoes. Sledges are sleds. Igloo is an Eskimo hut. Three sleeps ago means three days ago. We are making an igloo. It is made out of Orange crates. We are getting to make it round like an igloo. It will be covered with paper, and we will make black squares on it to make it look like snow blocks. Tom brought an Eskimo village to school. We put it in the sand box. Eskimos see Northern Lights. Sometimes they think the world is on fire. They think that, because the light gets so bright way up North. We wrote this story. The name of it is The Eskimo Ride. Once there were two Eskimo twins. They had two little dogs. The twins names were Kee-kee and Chee-chee. The dogs names were Nip and Tup. Once they went on a sledge ride. The dog team pulled the sledge. On the ride they saw a bear. They killed the bear with spears. Chee-chee had to take the bear to the igloo, because she was the girl. That is a rule of Eskimos. They divided the meat with the other people. That is a rule too. 42 Jhe rirdt Ljrade We went to the cafeteria. We saw Mrs. Linnig. She said, " Do you want to taste the dessert? " We saw the big stove. We saw the big, big ovens. We saw four big ovens. Cakes were in the oven. We saw the dish washer. We saw four sinks. The cold room was very cold. There was jello in the cold room and milk and prune whip. We liked going to t he cafeteria. We said, " Thank you, Mrs. Linnig.

Senior JsinderaarL % We like to play with the blocks and build things — houses, train tracks, road bedding, castles, and churches. We like to play in the doll corner and clean up, and sometimes dress up in costumes. We like to draw pictures and make designs and work in our work books. We love to skate on the ice pond. We love to play out on the hill-top and go sliding down the hill. We have lots of birthday parties at school. We have cup cakes and candles and juice. 44 JR. KINDERGARTEN COMMENTS ABOUT SCHOOL I like to play with the big blocks. I like to stay in school, and I don ' t want to go home. I like to watch Brownie and Cherry-pie (our two Hamsters, small rodents). I like to sleep at school. I like to eat at school. When we put our doll dishes where they belong, then we can always find them the next morning. I like to rest in school, and I fold my rug neatly, and then I put it away on the shelf. I hurt my thumb, and it has a big bandage on, and now it is magic. We were expecting Santa Claus for the Christmas party, and one youngster said : " Santa Claus is coming all the way from Marshall Fields. " " Do you know what my dog did! " " No, what did he do? " " He died. " Clockwise: Mrs. Kellogg, Bengston, Beecher, Marco, MacColl, Firestone, Stone, Ulrich, Miss Sigrid, Shehorn, Webster, Thomas, Gardner, Hoffman, Galloway, Moller, Sweeney.

Since there was no real standout on the team, a chance was presented for real teamwork. This challenge was met admirably throughout the season. In almost every game it was possible to sense that the eleven individuals on the field were working as an efficient and hard-charging unit. The season itself was definitely on an uphill plane. Two quite easy games were first on the schedule, follow- ing which came four games with tough, big teams. The premier of the season was a game with a very inexperienced and light Latin team. Frequent fumbles set up many of the Raider ' s scores. The final score was a lopsided 32-0 North Shore victory. Next was Elgin, and they, too, were very green. Reserves used throughout the contest held it from rout proportions, and the score ended, N. S. 21, Elgin 0. Following was the Detroit game, in which North Shore had its only loss of the season. Detroit was the hardest hitting team played in the past two years. The game was hotly contested, with both sides threatening more than once. The home team scored its lone touchdown by a spectacular short pass-lateral play which was good for fifty yards. The Raiders threatened twice and once had a touchdown, only to have it called back by a penalty. Then came Evanston. Their J. V. representatives were a pretty fair team. However, North Shore ' s ability to only tie them, 0-0, might be ascribed to a lack of that extra " oomph " to push the ball over the goal line. The last two contests of the season were both against St. Louis teams, one Principia, the other St. Louis Country Day. These powerful teams, untested before by a North Shore team, both went down in defeat. In the Principia game the score was 19-6 N. S. and the St. Louis C.D.S. contest was a 25-7 upheaval in the Raiders ' favor. 48 North Shore— (32) North Shore— (21) North Shore— ( ) North Shore— ( ) North Shore— (25) North Shore— (19) Latin— (0) Elgin-(O) Detroit— (7) Evanston — (0) St. Louis C.D.S.— (7) Principia — (6) TOTAL WON-4 LOST-1 TIED-1 Back Row: Roberts, Suter, Judson, Corrington, Perlstein.

Old Man Weather put up quite a fight this season, but in spite of him, we succeeded in playing three of the six games which Manager Cynthia Gale had scheduled. However, even these were plagued with rain. Saturday, October 18, brought rain in Michigan, but, undaunted, we took the field against Grosse Pointe Country Day School. Our hosts displayed consistently fine teamwork, but with our spirit and drive we were able to hold them to a 3-3 tie. A Second Team game was not scheduled. Ferry Hall journeyed down to our field on Wednesday, October 29, to play two games. Again it rained. Although our opponents led the entire first half, we sparked up considerably during the second half and tallied with four goals. The final score was 4-1. The Second Team did equally well in spite of having half their game called off. Score: North Shore 3, Ferry Hall 0. 53 Led by Captain Georgia Elmes, both teams took the field against Francis Parker on November 12. As usual it was raining. The First Team did not score until the second half. Then we scored twice to end the game 2-0 in our favor. The Second Team did not fare so well, owing to the absence of many key players. The final score was Parker 1, North Shore 0. Especially evident throughout all three games, besides the bad weather, were the fine spirit and drive which both teams displayed. When lacking in skill and teamwork, we managed to come through largely as a result of this spirit and drive. The highpoint of the season was our trip to Detroit to play the Grosse Pointe girls. It was the first time a trip of this distance had been undertaken by any of the hockey teams. All of us felt privileged to be able to go, and it was a worth-while experience to play a team of such high caliber. Good luck to Nancy Adams, next year ' s captain, and to Joan Hauser, the manager, who we hope will not equal our undefeated weather record. Back Row: Packard, Everhart, Kochs, Gallery, Brown.

Uctrsitu (l adkeWuil The basketball season of ' 47- ' 48 can be summarized best by simply saying that it was a decided success. The reputations of the local prognosticators who said that the Raiders would not win more than five games were shattered when the latter came up with a 10 won and 3 lost record. Such a showing could not have been possible without the excellent coaching of Mr. McCarty, who, in his first year of directing a North Shore team, has turned in a sterling performance, and the capable leadership of Captain John Noble. Something should also be said for co-managers Monty Judson and Tom Pick, who handled very capably the administrative affairs of the team. The season, as a whole, started badly, with the Raiders suffering their first defeat in the opening game. After the setback, they went on to take five straight, Lake Forest breaking the string with the first of two victories over the North Shore five. The Raiders then managed to win one game from Francis Parker, lose their second game to Lake Forest, and finally to emerge victorious in the last four contests to bring the schedule to a successful close. In their first tilt, the Raiders journeyed out to Wheaton. They were defeated in a close game, 34-33. However, in the next game, played against Elgin on home grounds, North Shore broke into the victory column with an easy triumph. The visitors, without their star player, were ineffective and could score only 27 points against a North Shore total of 48. In the following two contests the Raiders played Lutheran High of Racine, a team previously untested by a N. S. five. They proved to be worthyopponents, as both games were hotly contested. The first ended in a 48-42 N. S. triumph, while the second the Raiders again won in a close contest, 34-33. 56 Latin and Milwaukee proved easy opponents in the succeeding games. However, Lake Forest, with a tall, accurate center and two hard-charging forwards, presented a tough obstacle to the Raiders. The final score was 40-35 in favor of Lake Forest. Francis Parker, the next team on the schedule, was fairly easy to overcome, but when the Raiders subsequently faced Lake Forest again, they went down in defeat a second time, 40-31. This was the third and final setback for the N. S. quintet. The final four victories, all by good margins, were over Francis Parker, Wheaton, Detroit, and Milwaukee.

The first team started out the game slowly, dropping behind at the first quarter. However, they began to catch up and then pulled way ahead of their opponents, winning with a score of 43-29. The second team won by a score of 32-4. The next game was with Ferry Hall. They got a quick lead in the beginning and were obvi- ously outplaying the first team. Towards the end of the game, however, North Shore improved. As it was, the first team lost, 29-38. The second team did not do well either, losing 8-11. The following week North Shore played Kemper Hall in our boys ' gym. Kemper Hall was not accustomed to such a big gym, and North Shore ran circles around them, defeating them 36-11. The second team played a good game, also, winning with a score of 25-23. Our next game was a return game with Ferry Hall. This game showed North Shores improve- ment since the last time they had played Ferry Hall. At the end of the first half, North Shore was winning 10-6. However, Ferry Hall caught up, and it was very sad when in the last few minutes of final score was 19-16. The second team suffered a The an exciting game they won by three points bad defeat, losing 20-11. The last game was at Girls ' Latin School, balconies, which cut out long shots, in a small, Here the teams had the disadvantage of over-hanging box-like gym. This is not excuse enough, however, for the crushing defeat that North Shore suffered. They were just not as good as the Latin team. The final score of the first team was 40-17. The second team lost also with a score of 37-25. In spite of the defeats, the season was a lot of fun, and our hearty thanks go to Miss Land for her coaching and to Estelle Blunt, the captain, and Ruth Allen, the manager. 59 Back Row: Judson, Noble, Moyer, Sholes, Brashears, Rudolph, Ferris.

(7s a5ebciil As the Mirror is going to press, North Shore ' s baseball season of 1948 is getting under way with a double-header against Milwaukee Country Day School. After nearly a month of preliminary practicing, the Raiders should be well prepared for their first game. Although there is no accurate means of telling what will be the season ' s outcome, prospects look encouraging. Last year ' s infield, with the exception of Comer Plummer, who unfortunately had suffered a broken leg, is present again for this season. The catching department is also very adequately staffed. The outfield and the pitch- ing corps are both promising, but are doubtful qualities which will have to prove themselves as the schedule progresses. There is, in addition, a plentiful number of reserves of unusually good quality. Under the dynamic coaching of Mr. McCarty, who is having his premier as baseball coach for the Raiders, the team should be a hard-hitting and aggressive unit. In the absence of Comer Plum- mer, who is a great loss to the team, both from the standpoint of baseball ability and outstanding leadership, Jack Anderson is doing a very fine job as captain. The game schedule will not be easy, as a glance at it shows, but with the spirit and determina- tion exhibited thus far, the 1948 Raiders should go places.

The editors, Tom Pick and Georgia Elmes, continued with the policy established last year of having six pages and pictures every issue. Moreover, this year many of the pictures were posed especially for the " Purp " . Noted among these was the picture showing our illustrious football team with book in hand doing push-ups on the field, the purpose being to show the seriousness over impending exams. Alumni News, the Inquiring Reporter, and What ' s-In-Town were among the regular articles con- tinued from the past. Besides these, a few new ones were added. Jazz news and a column of jokes supplied record data and humor. The Overseas Reports, direct from our " traveling correspondent, " enlightened us cm the situation in Europe. Highly controversial subjects, such as the " New Look " question, were also introduced. Each issue was highlighted by the crusading editorials which objected to everything from bubble gum to bridge. A new capacity, that of Assignment Editor, was added to the staff this year. Betty Jean McGregor, who very ably handled the job, served as right hand man to the editors, helping to plan each issue and assigning the articles. Gingy Allen and Ruth Allen brought in more and bigger ads than ever before, and Cynthia Gale and Midge Chace handled the business end efficiently. The editors wish good luck, a bigger bank account, and shorter, less social dummying bouts to next year ' s editors. IP nil!

S tudent l ouncil The Student Council has endeavored to accomplish the purpose set forth in the preamble of our student constitution. The preamble states that our constitution is founded on the belief that through active participation in a democratic government we shall better learn the practices and principles of a functional democracy. We, as have others, have learned through mistakes, both in Town Meeting and in Council. Our first meetings were characterized by the lack of a working knowledge of parliamentary procedure, but as we gained that knowledge, our meetings improved both in orderliness and in achievement. Those who have spoken in Town Meeting, and there were many, have not only learned the means of per- suasive oration, but also the value of the chance to voice one ' s opinions. But, what is most important, we have learned to live together in a community, all obeying the same laws; all have had an equal chance to take part in the governing of our school, and all have had various opportunities to con- tribute their portion to the well-being of the whole school. The Student Council has carried out its regular duties, which consist of the enforcing of what few laws we have, the consideration of special problems, and the financing of student athletics. All the funds which are available to the Council are derived from the taxation of money-making con- cerns and the profits of the Vaudeville. We believe the student government, this year as in the past, has made another step forward in the direction in which our student constitution has so ably headed us. 66 Jke i V lornlna- -x L ommiu f The function of the Morning-Ex Committee is to consider all suggestions concerning possible programs, to select the suitable possibilities, and to schedule these programs. The committee en- deavors to provide varied and interesting programs from the various parts of the school and a few from outside. Since the purpose of Morning-Ex is to acquaint the different parts of the school with the work of the various classes, gain the interest of individuals, and make known the various activi- ties going on in the school, the Morning-Ex Committee tries to keep from having too many programs from outside. The outside programs are, of course, provided by the educational series and by various individuals who have travelled or who have done something interesting. The committee is made up of at least one representative from each home room in the High School and Middle School and five faculty members. The committee is limited to these; however, several people who are interested come occasionally, and everyone is welcome. In this way all the grades and the faculty are represented. This aids the committee in scheduling programs that will be of general interest. This year the committee has been fortunate in having among its regular members Miss Gil- bert, Mrs. Kratz, Mr. Thomas, Mr. Steel, and Mr. Marsh, who have all given helpful suggestions and aid in making the work of the committee successful.

Xr L ctppeilu ippt The A Cappella singers are an independent group of female singers, conducted by our able music director, Ramsay Duff. Since A Cappella is an independent organization, the only time for rehearsal is during lunch periods, and we are very thankful to Mr. Duff for giving up this time for us. The main purpose of A Cappella is to give those girls who are interested in singing a chance to sing in a small group and to learn to read and sing unaccompanied music. New members are chosen for A Cappella at the end of each year by members of the group, who try to get those people who are sincerely interested and able. Every girl in the group not only learns, but also enjoys it very much. Throughout the year A Cappella sings for various organizations and at school exercises. So far this year we have sung for the Infant Welfare and for the Christmas exercises at school. Also a school in Rockford has asked us to sing for them sometime in February, and we will be giving a few Morning Exercises throughout the year. The repertoire of the choir consists of contrapuntal music, madrigals, mote ts, Russian church music, and part songs. 68 Jhe (a5ou5 C-f ndem Ue This year the Boys ' Ensemble got off to a very good start. The group contained fifteen boys, some of whom were veterans from last year ' s group. We started out the year by learning " Deep River " and " Rolling Down to Rio " and then went on to one of last year ' s favorites, " The Camel- drivers ' Song. " Although the majority of the group was new this year, the first few practices at lunch period on Tuesdays and Thursdays proved to be very satisfactory, and it wasn ' t long before we were fairly well organized. The Boys ' Ensemble is divided into four parts — first tenor, second tenor, first bass, and second bass. This year ' s group had well balanced parts that blended well together. This, of course, formed the basis for good singing, as it does in any musical group. The Ensemble was begun last year, and up to this time has been very successful under the direction of Mr. Duff. We hope that some day it will be as well known as the girls ' A Cappella, and from the results of the group ' s first two years, it looks as if it has very good chances of being so. All the boys who sang in the Ensemble this year enjoyed it immensely and only wish that they could have spent more time on it.

S taae i t 9 l rew The 1947-1948 Stage Crew was one of the most efficiently run committees in the school. As in previous years, the " Crew " was responsible for setting up any necessary equipment for Morning Exercises including the presentation of movies. The " Crew " also handled the technical work to be done on the Vaudeville and Opera. The Crew this year was divided into two parts, the Regular Stage Crew and the Opera Stage Crew. This measure was taken to get extra help for the work to be done on the Opera, the biggest job for the Stage Crew each year. The Regular Stage Crew, organized by Dave Kidd, was made up of many underclassmen so that in the future the school will continue to have efficient Stage Crews. It is the regular Stage Crew which takes care of the Morning Exercises and the Vaudeville. This year ' s Opera Stage Crew was in the capable hands of Dave Holies, who has been on the " Crew " since his freshman year. The Opera Stage Crew was made up of the regular " Crew " plus any volunteers or anybody who had no other definite job in the Opera. The Stage Crew is one of the few committees that no one hears much about, but it does a good job, and without it dramatic pro- ductions could not have attained the success they have at North Shore. 70 cJLeicester ■ rrcLll With the new management of Mr. and Mrs. Howe and Mr. and Mrs. Brooks Smith, Leicester got off to a good start this year and has been going strong ever since. Leicester Hall is an institution in which boys from the eighth through twelfth grades may live. There are two seniors: John Stallings, who hails from Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and Pete Brashears, a fugitive from California. Pete Vail, Paul Sferra, and Al Bender are juniors and live in Chicago. Tom Belshe, also a junior, joined the happy throng in January. The three sophomores are: Andy Dallstream and Cy Fanning, both from Barrington, and Clif Boram of Evanston. And, last but not least, we must not forget Bill " Wilbur " Getz, an eighth grader from Barrington. Breakfast is at 7:30, and a few of the boys have a little trouble making it on time; however, they are all usually there by twenty of eight. Each morning after breakfast many sounds may be heard in Leicester. Above the soothing voice of Ernie Simon on all radios a newcomer might hear electric razors, victrola, birds, and even the effects of physical violence. All of a sudden someone notices that it is time for school, and there is a stampede to all home rooms. After school the activities of the inmates vary. Some have interests in the opposite sex. Some pursue their hobbies, and a few study. Supper is at 6:30 and study hall from 7:45 to 9:15. After this the boys eat, loaf, and finally are ready for sleep.

Stevens, was a play written for the municipal Christmas celebration of Duquesne, a steel town on the Monongahela River. In the tradition of the ancient form, the play unfolds itself in all the simplicity and charm of the lovely old Christmas story. The play opens on the three prophets, Isaiah, Micah, Hosea, who foretell the birth of Christ; this scene is followed by the entrance of the Wise Men following the Star, the cruel King Herod, and in a burst of light, Gabriel and a host of angels, who speak to the shepherds watching with their flocks in the fields. The play ends with the revelation of the beautiful nativity scene. The scenery for the play was simple, but effective. The lighting was excellent and in many places, especially in the nativity scene, contributed greatly to the dramatic effect of the production. Presented by the boys and girls of the ninth grade, the play was assisted by the Heavenly Choir, singing some lovely German, French, and traditional music; as usual the choir performed excellently and added a great deal of beauty and dignity to the play. Many thanks are due to Mr. Marsh, Mr. Duff, the upper school singers, and the Freshman class, all of whom cooperated to make this play one of the most beautiful ones given at North Shore. Jhe Uaudeui The Vaudeville this year was reputedly one of the best ones North Shore has ever given. The psychiatrist proved a good listener to all the dreams that the patient had. These dreams excelled themselves in acts like " Dance with a Dolly " , " Martins and the Coys " , and " Uncle Sam " . Perhaps the best part of all was that the acts were original and varied. " The Bold Knight " , " The Light Went Out " , and the record singers proved good variations to the regular song and dance acts. The chorus did a fine job. Even on the difficult part of " Lovely to Look At " , they stayed right on pitch. It was very effective when, in the opening chorus, the boys stood up on the stairs with their purple shirts on and formed an " N " with the white-sweatered girls as a background. " I ' ve Got a Pocketful of Dreams " was a catchy tune, a good snappy song to start and end with. In short, no one could deny that " The Dream Man Cometh " was a very good and very successful show.

The day started with the arrival of our young guests, the colored children from a Chi- cago settlement house, who were shown around the school grounds. At ten o ' clock the entire school and our guests assembled in the auditorium for the Fourth Grade Play, Iphigeneia in Tauris. Upon its conclusion, each grade lined up behind its brilliantly decorated banner and marched to the May Queen ' s throne, which was surrounded with flowers and branches. When everyone had been seated, the May Queen, Muffy Gebhart, and her attendants, Estelle Blunt and Cynthia Gale, entered. They were accompanied by flower girls and the crown- bearer, chosen from the members of the Lower School. After the Queen had been crowned, dances were performed in her honor by each grade. The Lower School grades wore costumes representing the countries in which the dances presented origi- nated. In each other class, the girls wore gay, spring dresses, each grade having a different color. The boys wore white pants and shirts with sashes to match the girls ' dresses. Each group presented a pretty picture as it danced in front of the May Queen and our guests. Finally, the May Pole was brought in, and the Seniors, all in white, wove the purple and white streamers in and out. The end of the May Pole Dance was the signal for the school to break up into groups for their picnic lunches, after which came the end of the happy day. 74 Jke Senior f- la y This year the Senior Class voted to give Our Town, a play in three acts, by Thornton Wilder. The play is different from most plays, because there is no scenery; most of the play is done without props; and the scenes are set by the Stage Manager, who is used in much the same way that the chorus was used in the Greek theater. The play takes place over a period of fourteen years, and includes most of the people found in any small town. There are the town women, who busy themselves with their families, the churcb choir, and the dreams and gossip of a small town ; the choirmaster, who is the town drunkard ; the doctor; the editor of the weekly paper; and the young folks. In the first act the people and the town are introduced, and the beginning of the plot, a love story, is revealed. The second act goes through the wedding scene, and the third act takes place twelve years later, in the graveyard. There were a great many jobs done in connection with this play, including lighting, properties, costumes, prompting, business, and publicity. There were a great many parts, and almost everyone in the class got a speaking part. But more than anything else, we all wish to extend our deepest thanks to the man whose patience and fine directing made the production a smooth one — Mr. Smith. THE SENIOR CLASS WITH MR. SMITH, DIRECTOR OF THE PLAY, SEATED AT RIGHT. 75 a era r With the sound of ringing gongs and rolling drums the curtain went up on North Shore ' s produc- tion, The Mikado. Gilbert and Sullivan ' s comic opera was given on the nights of March nineteenth and twentieth, with a matinee on Thursday, March eighteenth. In spite of performance dates con- flicting with New Trier ' s Mikado the house was well filled, and the show a smashing success. The production of an opera, an annual event at North Shore, is the result of the combined efforts of the music and dramatics departments. Mr. Duff, our music director, is a seasoned veteran of these productions, and the full force of his talents and long experience was brought to bear on the 1948 Mikado, Mr. Marsh, the able new head of our dramatics department, proved himself in- valuable as a coach and a make-the-chorus-smile man. All of us who had anything to do with the opera this year know the success of the Duff-Marsh combination. There was an excellent cast this year, headed by representatives from every high-school class. The show was full of surprises, crowned by Ko-Ko ' s spontaneous and hilarious singing of " The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring " . The acting honors went to the girls who played Katisha; their por- trayals of a wizened, embittered old hag were superb. Prior to the performance week there was a wisp of doubt clinging to the minds of most people whether the opera would be ready. After seeing the production, however, everyone unanimously agreed on its success. Without the committee of mothers, headed by Mrs. Harper, the show could hardly have been what it was, for in those capable hands rested the fate of over one hundred costumes. Wigs, fans, and kimonos would never have survived and hung together except for the costume committee. The note which gave the high pitch to the opera was the scenery. When the curtain went up, the audience was transported, into a Japanese fantasy. The skill and artistry of Mrs. Holland and her student assistants were unbelievable. The gold flats with their Japanese paintings, the bronze lions which stood guard on the steps, and the gay banners carried by the Mikado ' s guards lent an aura of oriental brilliance which ran through the performance like a golden thread. No opera at North Shore is complete without one of those social gatherings commonly known as " open-houses " , and this year was no exception. The party with the proper amounts of good food, tired but exhilarated actors, music, and smoky atmosphere, made the perfect open-house. Many thanks to the gracious hospitality of Saturday night ' s Yum Yum! The glow of pride which suffused the school after the opera was shared by everyone from the leads and chorus to the expert and efficient freshman girls ' make-up crew. Each person had some part to play, and each committee did a good job; orchestra, stage crew, make-up, and props were essential cogs in the machinery of production. The opera was the work of the whole school, and we point with pride to the 1948 production of the Mikado!

Jhe K-jirld rtkletic f: ddocicition tit The Girls ' Athletic Association is an organization which represents all the girls in the field of sports. It is composed of a president, a secretary, the class representatives, and the team captains. The president and secretary are elected by the girls of the school, and the class representatives are chosen by each home room. The team captains are automatically on the G.A.A. Board. The point of this organization is to promote a keen interest in sports on the part of the girls and to encourage team competition and spirit. When the board had its first meeting, it was decided that in order to promote a good spirit and interest we would divide all the girls into two teams and call them Kappas and Deltas. These two teams play among themselves on Mondays; on Tues- days they play against each other; and on Wednesdays and Thursdays those who were not on the varsity squad played among themselves again. Any suggestions the girls have about the sports program are brought to the G.A.A. Board by the class representatives, and, if the suggestions appear to be good, they are worked into the program. Although the idea of a G.A.A. Board is not new, it needs a good deal of work and coopera- tion in the future. We all feel sure that if everyone shows as much interest next year, the G.A.A. will really be on its way to success. 78 ADVERTISERS ' INDEX Aetna Ball and Roller Bearing Co Page 93 Baumann-Cook Page 87 Bills Realty, Inc Page 95 Byler Sports Shop Page 92 Chestnut Court Book Shop Page 85 Community Service Page 85 Conney ' s Pharmacy Page 83 The Cottage Page 83 Dini ' s Sweet Shop Page 83 Eckart Hardware Page 85 Fell ' s Page 90 Gertrude ' s Music Shop Page 85 Geier ' s Service Station Page 83 Glencoe Animal Hospital Page 90 Frances Heffernan Page 87 J.
