Mai The Wildest PRQM There's nothing like a night on the town The room was hot, cramped, dark, and shook with the vibrations of the music. People bumped and shoved each other as they tried to dance to reggae. And the expensive food that was provided simply got cold. These were familiar sights at the 1986 lu- nior-Senior Prom. This year the 1986 Country Day School Prom was held at the Airport Hilton at approximately 9:00 P.M. on Saturday, May 17. Rented black limousines pulled up to the main entrance of the hotel, dropping sev- eral of the couples off for the dance. Inside the Ralph Butler Band played loud reggae music while people danced on a somewhat small floor in a much too small room. Sitting at tables behind the the dance floor couples socialized by throwing pretzels and drinking the soda that was served in an adjacent room. As a couple entered the room, they were sup- posed to take a gold paper key with a number on it. Then, during the festivities, numbers were called out at random and the people with the matching key number received a prize. After the band had stopped playing, which was around 12:00 A-.M., people climbed into their limou- sines and cars to make the long drive out to the Hill Behan Lumber Yard in St. Charles. 24fProm 1986 if ,ty . .f ,,.

V Golf has ELECTRIC season When the Varsity Golf season started in early spring, the team had lost many of its veterans and it was once again a young team. But returning player Ed C-ulewitz led the team to a strong finish with the help of Steve Gontram. Steve started the season well, and played consistently throughout with a season high of 38. Other team members includ- ed Chip Walker, Brian Roche, Bill Shepherd, joe Mueller, and David Strain. The team had an- other year of fine coaching by Ron Holtman. Coach Holtman led the squad to a 9-5 record losing only to Priory, Burroughs, CBC Lutheran South, and DeS- mel. Some of the highlights of the season included a second place finish in the ABC League Tour- nament and a second place in the Best Ball Tournament. The Jv Highlights OPP CD5 WON BURROUC-HS CBC DESMET CBC WON WON WON CBC WON WON PRIORY WON BISHOP DUBORC --- RECORD: WON 3, LOST 4 four players that represented Country Day at the District Golf Tournament were Capt. Ed C-ulewitz, Steve C-ontram, Chip Walker, and loe Mueller. Golf truly had an electric sea- son this year. Either golfer's luck or unfortunate scheduling, bad weather seemed to follow the team to more matches than usual. Clear evidence was pro- vided when Gontram was al- most struck by lightning while playing 9 holes. Could it be that golf clubs really act as lightning rods. Walker summed up the sea- son by saying "I felt we had a rewarding season, and I know they will do an even better job next year."

Gulewitz and Chip Walker. by Tucker Franciscus l-llghllghts CD5 OPP 199 BURROUCHS 206 255 CHAMINADE 261 270 LUTHERAN SOUTH 285 270 LUTHERAN NORTH 320 251 CBC 234 257 PRINCIPIA 291 270 AQUINAS 284 266 CLAYTON 251 274 LUTHERAN NORTH 340 274 PRINCIPIA 320 275 PRIORY 271 247 LUTHERAN SOUTH 258 281 DESMET 243 275 BURROUGHS 267 RECORD: won 9, tosr 5 V Golff23

Bill Latta: CHANGED "I couldn't go to parties without drinking. I would have to drink to rid me of all my insecuritiesf' At age 17, Bill Latta started using pot. He began by getting stoned a few times a week. Often he would leave school to get high. In his junior year at Country Day, Bill was involved in a bombing incident at a party. He left C.D.S., before being expelled, and went to a boarding school. However, things did not change. "I found things the same at boarding school." He repeated his junior year, still getting high, but worse. "I was getting stoned three or four times a day at boarding school. I couldn't survive without drugs." Money ran short and Bill had to resort to selling in order to support his habit. The first realization came to Latta when his parents found pot in his room. He promised himself that he would quit, but one week of abstinence did no good. He was hooked. In February of that year, there was a drug and alcohol seminar at this school. He showed up drunk and passed out. The Dean took him to the infirmary, and Bill had hit rock bottom. "I met a friend in the infirmary who had been through a drug treatment program. He gave me the big Alcoholics Anonymous book and I began to read it. It was then that I realized I needed help." Bill turned to the Edgewood program, located in Webster Groves. Since then he has been sober for 5 "lt was a big change in my life. I'm not as insecure now. I really do feel good about who I am, and I can The treatment will go on, probably for the rest of his life. "What I have is a disease. It is something I'm going to have to live with the rest of my life. I am a Looking back, Bill sees his past life as a "living Hell." He drank until he was 16, used drugs until he was 17. His message is simple: "You can ruin your whole life with drugs. The only person who can do jim Dierberg makes Philip Chyu laugh as he does his impressions PTOIIT cont . . . months, and counting.
