They have studied the travels of some of the different explorers, who discovered different continents, oceans and seas. The fifth grade made the map above from a much smaller map in their Atlas. This map was made to be used in a Morning Exercise given on May Day, 1952. It was a long hard job; but we finally finished it. This year each member of the class made an OF EVENTS enlarged map that wasn ' t as big as the map above, because that would have been too hard for one person to do alone. They put the ex- plorers ' routes on the maps in different colors of ink, each color representing a different ex- plorer. Among the other studies, the boys and girls went on a field trip. The boys went to the stock yards, and the girls went to the Museum of Science and Industry. 36 ' WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO THE BEST IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

The committee meets every Thursday, during the sixth period, in Mr. Smith ' s room on the second floor of the high school building. The function of the Morning Ex Committee is to find, solicit, organize, and schedule appro- priate subject material for the Morning Exercises throughout the entire year. Morning Exercise is a daily assembly occurring in the auditorium from 10:40 to 11:10 each mor- ning. Morning Exercise has three main purposes. develops the poise and self-assurance necessary to be at ease before an audience. The third pur- pose of Morning Exercise is to entertain the audience. While this is not always possible due to the wide age and interest variation which exists within the school, as many Morning Exer- cises as possible are designed to have univer- sality of appeal. Typical Morning Exercises are vacation ex- periences, hobby demonstrations, class project reports, group singing, and educational movies. Special and appropriate Morning Exercises are scheduled for such days as Halloween, Thanks- Kneeling, Left to Right: C. Grant, J. Rogers, McEwen, L. Hunt, Farwell, Friestedt, B. Basile, B. Jacobs, Goldman (Co- chairman) Standing: t. Cain, Mr. Marsh, J. Carstens, Kratz (Co-chairman), Lowrey, Adler, Witherell, Mr. Steel, Norse, T. Tribble. First, it is meant to serve as a source of connec- tion between the members of the lower school, middle school, and high school. This is the only period during the day and the only daily occur- rence at which all of the three schools are to- gether. The second purpose of Morning Exercise is to serve as part of the education of the mem- bers of the school from Junior Kindergarten through the Senior Class. It is in Morning Ex that every member of the school has an oppor- tunity to present some information or opinion which he or she finds interesting and wishes to relate to the group. While doing this, the person giving, Washington ' s birthday, and Memorial Day, while a week of traditional Morning Exer- cises just precedes Christmas vacation. Among the more prominent Morning Exercises are the Educational Series. This is a group of lec- tures by outside speakers who are obtained by a committee of the Parents Association. This year the Educational Series featured local talent, hav- ing had men from the Art Institute, and the Planetarium, as well as such notable personalities as Clifton Utley and Carl Sandburg. Parents often attend Morning Exercise and are always welcome. 47 Left to Right: K. Gilbert, Judy Atwood, B. Basile, Jill Atwood, D. Simmons, Suter, J. Dayton, Behr, Selz, Farwell, Favill, Brandsness, R. Grant, Hinshaw, N. Graves. A Cappella Having decided that sixteen members would be a good number to provide satisfactory volume and balance in their group, the A Cappella, un- der the chairmanship of Holly Cummings, opened the year by adding to its roles the names of Lorie Selz, Betty Basile, Maggie Brandsness, Lanie Favill, Nora Graves, Jill Atwood, and Dee Dee Simmons. Those returning from the previous year — Judy Atwood, Holly Cummings, Berta Grant, Judy Dayton, Kate Gilbert, Carol Hin- shaw, Alice Suter, Lucia Farwell, and Nancy Behr made up the complement. The first project was the Vaudeville, and the girls gave the Hour of Charm a run for its money with their presentation of " All the Things You Are " and " Deep Purple " . Then with only two weeks of preparation available, they sailed into the Christmas season and sang from Britten ' s " Ceremony of Carols " in addition to their ap- pearances with the Ensemble in vocal support of the Tableaux and the Christmas Play. While in the midst of preparing a program for an early spring Morning Ex, A Cappella was asked to contribute to the weekly Lenten Services being held at Christ Church in Winnetka. This they did by singing the lovely " Jesu, Dulcis Memoria " by Victoria and " Bless the Lord, O My Soul " by Ippolitov-lvanov. Thus the group continued its fine tradition throughout the year — offering an opportunity to girls interested in performing music from the great heritage of music written for voices alone, with the fun of the contemporary side as well. 48 Left to Right: Pickard, Farrell, W. Everett, Loomis, Kratz, McLallen, Harper, Newman, T. Taylor, J. Rogers, F. Lunding. Ensemble " The old songs! The old songs! Those good old songs for me! I love to hear those minor chords — and good close harmony. " This, the vocal signature of the S.P.E.B.S.Q.A. (Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America) might weil have been the theme song of this year ' s Ensemble. Stimulated by the interest of Dune Farrell in the " swipes " (successions of more complicated harmonies on the same word) so dear to the heart of the barbershop-er, the boys spent many hours working to master unusual settings of familiar tunes. The first appearance of the year was made at the Vaudeville, where, complete with skimmers and derbies, they added spark to the show with " Cruisin ' Along in My Old Oldsmobile " and " After Dark. " At Christmas time it was " Jingle BeLs " that got the treatment from these ton- sorial tonsil ticklers, and for the annual Talent Show the old favorite, " I Had a Dream, Dear " was prepared. Although perhaps most occupied with the vagaries of the diminished seventh chord, the boys did take time out to join with the A Capella in providing appropriate music for the Tableaux and the Christmas play in December and at other times during the year when music of a more serious nature was needed. A desire to join in the fellowship of good song was the only requirement for membership in the group. Among those who joined forces from time to time were: Glen Smith, Tom Taylor, Tom Kratz, Dune Farrell, Don Tartak, Bob McLallen, John Rodgers, Art Pickard, Bill Everett, Paul Loomis, Frank Lunding, Charlie Newman, Jim Hood, Jack Harper, and Cole Hutchins. 49 Seated, Left to Right: McEwen, B.

The Board feels that the G.A.A. can be a very important group. In order to authorize and make clear to all members, present and future, the aims of the Board, it has been decided that a Constitution would be help- ful and would add weight and dignity to the G.A.A. and its endeavors. A committee was formed at the beginning of the second semester to draw up a Constitution and it is well underway. The G.A.A. also decided to have an an- nual tournament with inter-class competition. Some of the sports to be included in this program will be: Basketball, Baseball, Volley- ball, Tennis, Badminton, and Hockey. Others such as Lacrosse and Bowling are being considered also. The tournament will have its climax at the annual G.A.A. Spring Ban- quet at which time a trophy will be awarded to the team having the most points. There is on the G.A.A. Board at this time a representative from the Middle School. The G.A.A. seems to be gaining in pop- ularity and strength. If it continues to do so it will someday be one of the most important organizations in the school. Much of the credit for this increased feeling belongs to our new gym teacher, Miss Bonnie Pick. 50 Stage Crew Left to Right: Bacon, Gorham, Pickard, A.

The Library Committee is composed of members selected from each class. These members are trained in the operation of the library so that they, in turn, may be of service to the other class members. Meetings are held during the Wednesday sixth period. At this time the problems of running a library on the honor system are discussed. This year a new constitution for the committee was written which, we hope, will give the future library committees clearly defined duties and responsibilities. This con- stitution should help in the solution of prob- lems that arise from time to time, assuring the highest standard of service to the school. It is, however, only with the full cooperation of the school that the library has and will continue to exist without a full-time librarian, fines, and the other formalities of a high school or public library. This high level is necessary in view of the fact that the state accredits each school according to the quality, size, and services of its library. A great number of copies of a national magazine were recently donated by Mr. Thomas D. Eliot. Our magazine table has been greatly expanded, and many new books are being accessioned as rapidly as possible. We wish to thank the Parents ' Committee and its chairman, Mrs. Olson, not only for their actual work in accessioning and cata- loging the books, but also for the real in- terest they have shown in improving the librarv. Since Miss Gilbert ' s retirement, Miss Lennards has put in many valuable hours as our faculty representative, ably carrying out the responsibilities of her position. We appreciate, too, the fine spirit that the stu- dents and faculty have shown, and hope that it will continue for many years. The members of this year ' s committee wish to congratulate Margo Pirie on her election as chairman for the last semester of this school year, and the first semester of the next. We are sure that under her leader- ship, the committee will continue to perform ably its needed job in the school. 52 May Day The flower covered throne was ready and the excited crowd waited eagerly for the appearance of the May Queen and her two attendants. Then the royal proces- sion came in view. The beautiful May Queen was Judy Olson and her attendants were Lenny Hunt and Martha Allen. The ribbon girls were Cariene Blunt and Carol Osborne. The girls sat down to reign over the joyous festival. All of the grades then presented dances in honor of the queen and May Day. The dances were begun by the lower kindergarten, and culminated with the May Pole dance, done by the seniors. The girls were all in pastel dresses, except for the seniors, who were dressed in white. After the festivities the students and their guests had their picnic lunches and the ice cream and drinks which were provided by the May Day committee. Under the supervision of the sophomore girls with Miss Deane and Dr. Landau, the May Day cele- bration was a successful and memorable occasion. 53 54 r i T The Auditorium.

The Angel Gabriel began to speak. This year ' s climax to North Shore ' s festivities during the holiday season had begun. The play presented was " The Wise Men, " which portrays the age-old story of the journey of the wise men to see the Christ Child. The ninth grade made up the cast with Muffy Sweeney as Mary, Jack Hardy as Joseph, Leon- ard Walworth as the first Wise Man, Dick Bers as the second Wise Man, Paul Loomis as the third Wise Man, Lorie Selz as Gabriel, Leslie Anderson as the first Angel, Linda Graves as the second Angel, Charlie Newman as the mes- senger, Bob Schnering as Herod, John Rodgers as Herod ' s son, Marcia McMillan as the Mid- wife, and Joby Kunkler as a Mid-wife. The rest of the girls and boys were angels and soldiers. The play began with Gabriel ' s prophecy of the Savior. Then the three Wise Men discussed the star and decided to follow it. King Herod told them to find the child and determine whether he was the Savior. The Wise Men bear- ing gifts were met by two mid-wives who took them to the manger. There they found Mary, Joseph, and the Christ Child. After the Wise Men presented the gifts, an Angel appeared and warned Mary and Joseph to flee with their child; otherwise Herod and his soldiers would harm him. The stage was then filled with angels, and the play ended with a memorable tableau of the scene in the manger. 58 Senior Play CAST Mr. Pirn Eddy Hines Olivia Marden Martha Allen, Maggie Brandsness George Marden - - Art Pickard Dinah, his ward - Harriet Kelman, Judy Olson Brian Strange - - - Nick Kronwall Aunt Julia - . . Carol Hinshaw Anne, the maid - - Lenny Hunt The Senior play chosen this year was the en- tertaining English comedy, Mr. Pim Passes By, by A. A. Milne. It v as presented Friday and Satur- day, May 28 and 29, under the able direction of Mr. Smith. Mr. Pim is a bumbling old man who " passes by " the Marden ' s country house and makes a series of mistakes which change their lives. Con- servative George Marden is horrified to learn that his wife Olivia ' s first husband is still alive and that he is married to a bigamist. He is also upset because his ward, Dinah, wants to marry a modern artist who draws triangular clouds, and because Olivia is plotting to redecorate the house. When Mr. Pim reveals that Olivia ' s first hus- band is dead after all, she is able to overcome George ' s conservatism, and cleverly maneuvers him into giving his consent to the marriage of Dinah and Brian. 59 The Mikado CAST Friday night listed first) Duncan Farrell, Jack Harper Bob McLallen, Tom Taylor Tom Kratz, Mike Wallace - Bill Everett, Art Pickard - Paul Loomis, Charles Newman Frank Bacon Roberta Grant, Deedee Simmons Judy Atwood, Kate Gilbert Judy Dayton, Alice Suter Holly Cummings, Nancy Behr 60 Student Co-ordinator Publicity - - - - Scenery Design and Painting Scene Building and Stage Crew Record - - MUSICAL DIRECTION - STAGE DIRECTION Mr. Allison Mr. Marsh 61 AUDITORIUM ACTIVITIES 62 Boys ' Gym Athletics . . . 63 BisSFwBmmammtHm First Row, LeFt to Right: Miller (Mgr.), Mr. McCarty (Coach), Wallace, Kratz, Tartak, Jeffris (Capt.), Scott, Bard, Adler, Everett (Mgr.).

Varsity Football The 1953 football season, while not achieving most pre-season expectations, was quite satisfac- tory. We won five out of eight games, tieing one, with a Midwest Prep conference record of 3-2-1. At the end of the year North Shore was in third place in the conference standings. The first two games, against Francis Parker and Glenwood, we won, 45-0, and 6-0, respectively. The third game, and Midwest Prep Conference competition opener, saw the Raiders tie Mil- waukee University School, 12-12. The fourth game, against Milwaukee Country Day School, saw North Shore play its worst half of the season, and also one of its best. In the first half, M.C.D. walked all over the Raiders, scoring four touchdowns to our one. Inspired by Mac ' s halftime talk, though, the team held the Green and Gold even during the second half. The final score was 46-26. The following weekend, North Shore played host to Milwaukee Lutheran. Although the Raid- ers were outweighed, they played a determined game and won, 26-6. The next Saturday North Shore travelled to Beaver Dam, to play in Wayland ' s homecoming. 64 Overcoming an early Wayland touchdown, North Shore won, 25-13. Northwestern Preps had their homecoming the following Saturday, which the Raiders also spoiled, 27-13. The next, and last, game, was our own home- coming, against Lake Forest Academy. Although North Shore had been pointing for the game all season, we went down to a hard fought defeat, 20-13. Much of the success of the team was due to the diligent coaching of Mac, and also to Ric, who once again gave of his time to come out and whip the line into shape. To these two men the team expresses both its thanks and hopes for a good season next year. SCORES North Shore 45 Francis Parker North Shore 6 __ Glenwood 2 North Shore 12 M. U.

With a nucleus of ten players back from last year ' s outfit the squad started off strong against Lake Forest Academy ' s frosh-soph and Luther Institute ' s junior varsity. Highlight of the season, however, was the team ' s play against the always powerful Milwaukee Country Day School squad. Outnum- bered and outweighed, the Raiders out-scored Milwaukee 2-0 in the first half, only to yield one touchdown in the third period for a 6-2 loss. Hampered by injuries in the last three games of the season, the squad dropped two close ones to Lake Forest and a return match with Luther. More than from the injuries, however, the boys suffered from an inability to move the ball in- side their opponent ' s twenty-yard line. Had this one difficulty been overcome, the record would have been completely different. In games with the Lake Forest Day School and with the Glencoe All-Stars, the freshman mem- bers of the squad showed the valuable experi- ence gained from playing in the faster frosh-soph competition and won both games handily by identical 25-6 scores. In elections held before the last games of their seasons the frosh-soph and freshman teams named as their respective captains Bill Pirie and Frank Lunding.

A spectacular hockey season was registered by the girls when they went undefeated in twenty games. Starting very unobtrusively, the team developed into a group with so great a spirit of cooperation and true team wor k that no one could stop them. Every game was a test but the hardest ones in or- der of appearance were Ferry Hall, Downer, and Girls Latin. The climax came when, despite rain and wind, the team swamped the All-Stars in the same methodical manner that marked previous games. Throughout the season there were no individual stars, but at each crucial moment there was always a North Shore player on the spot to score the goal or make the save. The consistency of spirit and the tremendous team work were the standout charac- teristics of the team. Prospects for next year seem bright with Pat Blunt as captain, and Nat Griswold as manager. 1st Team North Shore 2 Milwaukee U.S. North Shore 3 Francis Parker North Shore I Ferry Hall North Shore 2.....

Berndtson, Varsity Baseball As the MIRROR is going to press, the baseball season is in tull swing. The team fell behind this year due mostly to the fact that all but four varsity players went to Florida for the spring vacation. The lack of practice showed up consistently in the opener at Chicago Latin as North Shore took a fourteen to one beating at the hands of the Chicagoans. However, the team showed steady improvement in the next few weeks, and, although they lost the next two games, they cut down the margin of defeat and in the fourth game of the season North Shore gave Milwaukee C. D. S. a decisive defeat, eight to one. The team is made up mostly of seniors and seems to be sound all the way around in both experience and ability. The big question mark before the season began was how the pitching staff would hold up, but as the team progresses, it looks like the pitching spot will be very ably filled by Bill Adler, Don Taylor, and Derek Payson. Led by captain Bill Adler, the team is determined to have a winning season and together with Coach McCarty ' s drive there is a good chance they will succeed. SCORES North Shore I.

Eight schools were represented in pre- season meetings to decide on conference regula- tions and eligibility rules. They were: North Shore Country Day and Lake Forest Academy, the only two Illinois schools; Racine Lutheran High School, Milwaukee Country Day School, Milwaukee University School, Milwaukee Lu- theran High School, Wayland Academy, and Northwestern College Preps. The schools aver- age about two or three hundred students, the largest being Milwaukee Lutheran, with eight hundred seventy. North Shore ' s one hundred twenty high school enrollment is the smallest. Top football honors last fall went to Milwau- kee Country Day. Rolling over most Conference competition, the closest M.C.D. came to defeat was a 0-0 tie with Lake Forest. In second place were M.U.S., and, by virtue of beating us at our homecoming, L.F.A. M.U.S. had a pretty good team, ekeing out a 12-12 tie with North Shore early in the season. Lake Forest, although ham- pered by a poor start when losing to Racine Lutheran ' s team which was too inexperienced to enter into full Conference competition, came through at the end of the season by tieing M.C.D., and beating North Shore. In third place was North Shore. Well built up before the start of the season, North Shore fell down noticeably against M.U.S. and M.C.D. However, we did succeed in beating Wayland, Northwestern, and Milwaukee Lutheran by siz- able scores, and thus landed in third place. In fourth place was Northwestern, and Fifth, Way- land Academy. Milwaukee Lutheran, probably the heaviest team in the conference, was sixth. At the end of the season, as is customary in conference play, All-Conference teams were selected. Each feam first chose their All-confer- ence selections, and these choices were then screened by the coaches, and a first and second team were chosen. North Shore placed three men on the first team. They were Captain Rufus Jeffris, Dave Luick, and Don Taylor. We also placed Don Tartak and Jeff Carstens on the second team. Racine Lutheran were the basketball champs at the end of regular conference play this year. They lost only one game all season, to M.U.S. North Shore came in a strong second, losing only three games. The rest of the conference then followed in this order: Milwaukee Lutheran, M.C.D., Wayland, Lake Forest, Northwestern, and Milwaukee University School. E. R. Moore was selected as first string center on the all-con- ference basketball team at the end of the season. A fitting climax to the basketball season this year was the first annual Midwest Prep Confer- ence tournament which was held at the Racine Lutheran gym, on March 6-7. Action got under way on Friday afternoon at three o ' clock, when Milwaukee Lutheran beat Northwestern, 61-50. Immediately following this game North Shore took the floor to defeat L.F.A., 61-51. That night, at 7:15, M.C.D. bowed to M.U.S., 55-45. The final game that night saw the number one team, Racine, pitted against an inspired Wayland five. Wayland had beaten North Shore a week before by one point, and was now out to upset the champs. And upset them it did in a 54-51 thriller, one of the most exciting games of the whole season. At 2:00 the next afternoon, North Shore opposed Milwaukee Lutheran. We won easily, 54-41. This game put North Shore in the finals that night. The other game saw Wayland beat M.U.S., 54-40. At 8:45 that night, the championship finals saw the Redmen of Wayland take the floor against the Purple Raiders from North Shore. Taking a comfortable lead in the first quarter, North Shore maintained it throughout the game. When the final gun sounded, the score stood 50-39 in favor of North Shore. Immediately following the last game, the awards were passed out. On an all-tournament team of ten outstanding players, North Shore placed three. They were E. R. Moore, Don Tay- lor, and captain Doug Bard. Captain Bard also accepted the Championship trophy on behalf of the team. Thus the basketball team of 1952-53 had amassed an impressive 20-3 record. They won more games than any other North Shore team in the school ' s history. Basebail, because of the participation of only six schools, is not a conference sport. Although the season is only about half through, Racine Lutheran seems to have the best team. To date, North Shore has won I and lost 5. Further in- formation can be found in the baseball article. Golf and Tennis are also conference sports, although not all schools participate in these. Some schools compete in track, and any school may send athletes to the conference track meet, to be held in the spring. Over the year, the conference seems to have vastly benefited all the eight schools. For one thing, a full schedule of good teams is assured each school in every major sport. Also, being in a conference adds incentive to teams. They know there is something to compete for, which if attained, really means something. Last, playing in a conference such as this raises the level of the competition, and with it, the added prestige to each school. All in all, the Conference has done much for North Shore sports, and the graduating class, for one, wishes it a long and happy existence. 77 Bottom Row, Left to Right: Pirie, Aid, Payson.
