The or- dinary steps in construction are: l. To determine the purposes and functions that the building is to serve 2. To select and prepare a site suitable for those purposes and functions. 3. To construct the building by carefully following plans that show how the purposes of the building may be realized. You can contribute to this great "VVorld Building." The pioneering work of clearing the site of the most formidable obstacles has already been 'accomplished by the young men and young women in the services of this and other nations. A firm foundation such as the Four Freedoms must be placed by other crafts. The actual job of construction will need the energy and daring that only youth possesses. Yours is the oppor- tunity to build into the thinking of human beings a concept of unity and freedom that will forever be a beacon light of hope to all people. Do not be dismayed by the pleadings of the timid or the demands of the sellish and the strong. Construct the building in terms of the purposes that it should serve. Only when the job is done can you relax and be honestly proud of the results achieved. ive, the faculty, congratulate you. Your opportunity is to supply the world with the vision and the courageous leadership that is so desperately needed. Make the most of it, and you will have performed your greatest possible service to humanity. Cordially, R. A.

With luck we should graduate next year. Meanwhile let's survey our past junior year. To start the year right the traditional junior pencils arrived on time and sold very well. In keeping with the green-and-white of their pencils, the class chose forest green-and-white sweaters after a close vote. N Members of the junior class made up a major part of this year's varsity football squad and a good share ol I K3 the basketball squad. We were also well-represented' on R K j the track team and should prove a credit in athletics to X X t N Q Sycohi during our senior year. The G. A. A., Pep Club, ' Spartan Club, music department, and other organizations were well-fortified with juniors. Three regular major- ettes, two cheerleaders, and one regular Hag twirler were juniorsg many of the leading roles in the operetta were played by members of our class. r-t . 4.

This and the honor roll established this year are the first opportunities we have had for scholastic recognition, and again a good percentage of juniors "made the grade." Of course the main social event of the year was the junior-Senior Prom. Funds to cover expenses were raised hy the sale of the pencils, concessions at games, and profits from the candy machine. The decoration and entertain- ment committees did particularly fine work, helping greatly in the success of the prom. Class officers this year were: Clifford Ells, presidentg jim Potter, vice-presidentg Don Gustafson, secretary: and Dorothy King, treasurer. Our class sponsor was Miss Hulbert. With the completion of final examinations the class of '47 brought their junior year to a close, leaving a rec- ord not easily equalled, and looking forward to'a hright future as seniors. f lst Row: Milton Westlake, Stanley Racich, Clayton McCue, James Patterson, Herbert Renwick, Donald Stearns, Rex Morrison, Dick Smith 2nd Row: Louise Woodward, Betty Sloniker, Marilyn Lloyd, Elsie Nimerfroh, Chester Wig, Robert Westberg, Jeanne Smith, Esther Strong, Mary Taylor 3rd Row: Donald Tedford, Stuart Nelson, Howard Scott, Joy Nieborgall, Audrey McCullah, Donna Wisted, Dolores Meier, Merle Swedberg, Robert Wallace, James Potter 4th Row: Lo Vern London, Grayce Stroud, Elise Singer, Rose Rickard, James Schwab, Lester Wolfe, Grace Lindquist, Lillian Singleton, Velma McMillan, Marion Lindgren, Margaret Morgan .

That is the very pleasing thought in the minds of all Sycohi sophomores beginning their new 1945-46 term. Ah! the thrill of being "upper-lower" class- men, that in-between stage. Now it's our turn to watch, with an air of superiority, the new freshmen in their fran- tic search for their respective rooms and teachers. We view sympathetically the attempts to open their lockers accompanied by many a puzzled frown ni and futile twistin 1' and turnin of the combinations. NVe also viewed, un- .-.

Those of the sophomore class who helped to make a successful year for the "Ponies" were Dick Troeger, Art Gilmore, "Hezzy" McClean, Roger Brooke, Roland Smith, "Swede" Higgins, and Sam Kocher. Neither football nor basketball would be complete without the aid of the "morale4building" cheerleaders, and we are proud to say that one of them,'Barbara jahns, is a member of the sophomore class. Besides football and basketball the sophomores have entered into many' other school activities. There is a large sophomore group in the A'Cappella Choir, baud, operetta, and choruses. The class also boasts members in the G. A. A., Pep Club, and on the Leaves staff.

A The arrival of the Freshmen last fall caused general confusion for awhile. "I'm sure my big sister said Miss Jordan's room was in the basement. ' "The ofhce is near the assembly, but where is the assembly?" The second day was better and by the third most of us could find the way from one class to another in only a little more than three minutes. lVheu the football season began, many of the fresh- men boys could be found out on the field practicing. Aix Next came basketball, and quite a few went out for that c 10 too. ' 9 To us, the initiations were something to look forward f Q l -, - to with apprehension. One afternoon in the fall, you X fi? might have seen boys at school with their pantlegs rolled X AVN' in . ua, doin unusual thin s, or, if the were luck , 'ust X X, Z l S 8 Y Y J W,, f - dod in seniors.

Pictures are the order of the day in this book, with additional pages to accommodate more of them. With our advisor, Mr. Hauswald, and Photography Editor Muggs Miner both clicking the shutters, we received quite a collection of snapshots. The individual senior pic- tures and most of the group pictures were taken by a photographer from Morrison's Studios in Milwaukee, lVis- consm. The Leaves of '46 was planned by a committee of six girls with the help of Mr. Hauswald. Regular meetings of the committee were held at 2:00 P. M. every Monday afternoon, so that ideas or suggestions might be discussed and plans for raising funds might be made. Those who attended the meetings were Doris Hillquist, Editor-in-cliiefg Ida Arison, Associate Editorg Muggs Miner, Photography Editor, Nancy Slezak, Art Editorg Elise Singer, Business Managerg and jane Hayes, Literary Editor. These six girls met so often with Mr. Hauswald that they became known fat least among themselvesj as "Hauswald's Harem". Speakingvof raising funds, Elise Singer is to be complimented upon her eflicient handling of the financial end of this project. The Leaves obtained money from the magazine drive fhandled by Miss Patersonj, the Leaves Concert, subscriptions, concessions at games, activity tickets, and the school board. One of the major sources of income was the concession at the State Regional Basketball Tourna- ment held in Sycamore from Feb. 27 thru March l. During this time the business and literary staffs were drafted to sell and cook food. lVe pay special tribute to the committee, headed by Betty Nowlen that cooked the hot dogs. The members of that committee sacrificed their chance to see the games in order that the "dogs" might be kept steaming hot. Also we praise each and every one of the people who braved the crowd to sell from the floor-the gym was so packed no one could have moved to leave his place during the last few nights. You may have noticed an occasional caricature accompanying an article. These were created by the Art Stall, headed by Nancy Slezak, and serve as reminders of occasions which could not be recorded on film. lVe of the annual stall wish to express our gratitude to all those who have made it possible to successfully publish the Leaves of l946. eauea EDITORIAL STAFF j Editor-in-Chief ...,..,.,,.................,........, ..,....

The band has joined with the choruses to present several programs of interest to the whole community. Service was also render- ed to the community by playing at civic events such as Memorial Day and Armistice Day programs. At Christmas the Band and A'Cappella Choir presented an evening program of Christmas music, with the Band playing a group of carols and the "Skater's Waltzn. N On April 5, the Band took the main part in the annual Spring Concert, which was sponsored by the Leaves. 1 Assisting were the other organizations in the Music Department. Our band was represented in a very large group which played at the Teachers' Institute at DeKalb, on the eighth of February. In this group were members of high school bands throughout the county. Each band sent about one-third of its members to DeKalb. The large band was directed by Dr. Toenniges, music instructor at the Northern Illinois State Teachers College. i On April 6 the band, together with the AlCappella Choir, went to the District Music Contest at Rochelle. j Since this was the hrst opportunity for organizations to appear in the contest since before the war, most schools sent at least one large group. Late in the spring the band ushered in the departing class of '46 to the strains of "Pomp and Chivalry" by Roberts. The linal appearances of the Band at Baccalaureate and Commencement brought to a close a year which had been enjoyed by band members and other students alike. .X4 Cdldpeffa glzou' lst Row: Jane Hayes, Elise Singer, Margaret Miner, Mary Ann Gray, Miss Russell, Ida Arison, Audrey Knudsen, Helen Mont- gomery, Genevieve Russell, Jean Fellinger 2nd Row: Marvin Waldo, Rudolph Parker, James Stark, Georgianne Bauer, Shirley McGetrick, Shirley Howe, Doris Ann Slezak, Judy Wade, Herbert Leonard, Jean Rubeck, Barbara Jahns, Paul Burke 3rd Row: Dorlan Ells, Rachel Buettell, Barbara Siostrom, Rose Thompson, Dorothy Johnson, Hallie Belle Matthews, Sally Stevens, Jeanette Cassier, Doris Hillquist, Jeanie Maclean, Mariorie Johnson, Mary Underwood 4th Row: Allan Doane, Nelson Hanks, Roland Smith, Arden Carlson, James Schwab, Bruce Hudson, Roger Michael, Marsh- all King, Gerald Smith, Elmer Hughes, Gail Parks 5th Row: Keith Sellers, Elliott Doane, Vincent Ahnquist, Gordon Drayton, Elvin Carlson, Herbert Renwick, Theodore Jackson, James Phelps, Orville Chambers, Marilyn Miller During the school year of 1945-46 the A Cappella Choir has been very active, participating on many occasions. The choir practices during homeroom period, from 11:05-11:45, on Tuesday and Thursday. The shop class has constructed some new risers this year to replace the previous clumsy benches. With the new risers,'the choir can sing in more places, and can practice the arrangements for concerts all year. The lirst concert of the year, the Christmas Concert, was held on December 20. The A'Cappella choir sang a varied program which included several of the more familiar Christmas carols. The concert ended with the "Hallelujah Chorus" and "The Glory of the Lord" by Handel, "There Shall a Star Come Out of Jacob" hy Mendelssohn, and "A Mighty Fortress is Our God" by Mueller. , J "The Pirates of Penzance", by Gilbert and Sullivan, was presented on March 22, and was highly enjoyed by the large audience present. Fine chorus work ably assisted the cast and did much to make the production a success. On April 5 the band and the A Cappella Choir again co-operated in the Spring Concert, an annual program looked forward to by all. On April 6 the choir went to the District Organizations Contest, and competed with many other choral groups. The contest numbers included, "Go, Song of Mine" by Wtlill Barton, "Open Our Eyes" by Will McFarlane, and "Ole Ark's A-Moverin' " by Noble Cain. As in the past, the choir sang for Baccalaureate this year, and with this appearance ended a very active and productive year. 0I"ll,6 Q6 .-SR.

Of these, the one involving the most preparation was the operetta, "The Pirates of Penzance". Although not all the members of the choruses partici- pated in the actual singing of the operetta, each person was assigned to a particu- lar job in the presentation, and each did his part toward making it a success that it was. Members of the girls' choruses doubled as dancers and singers in the productiong the dancers were directed by Mrs. Schrader and Miss Coady. Another appearance made by the choruses was the annual Leaves Concert, to which the entire music department contributed. This concert was given on April 5, the night preceding the District Music Contest for organizations. As many of the members of the girls' choruses and all of the boys are also members of the A'Cappe1la Choir, the week-end proved a very busy one. Several members of the choruses were sent to the District Solo and Small En- sembles Contest at Rochelle on March 2. Those in the girls' octette were Jeanie MacLean, Jeanette Cassier, Sally Stevens, Elise Singer, Ida Arison, Mary Ann Gray, Marjorie johnson, and Barbara jahns. A boys' quartet, consisiting of Vincent Ahn- quist, Ted jackson, Bruce Hudson, and Keith Sellers, also went to this event as did a third group, the mixed octette. In the latter group were Shirley McGetriek, Doris Hillquist, jean Fellinger, Ida Arison, Allan Doane, Ted jackson, Elliott Doane, and Roger Michael. Members who entered solo selections are as follows: Jeanie Mac- Lean, Jean Rubeck, Shirley McGetrick, Vincent Ahnquist, Keith Sellers, Bruce Hud- son, and Roger Michael. The final contributions made by the choruses was Il group of numbers done by the girls at Commencement. This concluded a very busy year for the musical groups of Sycamore High School. 41 .sztclenf Counci lst Row: Mr. Schrader, Theodore Anderson, Nancy Slezak, William Wesferbeck, Elliot!

The Student Council is the student governing body of Sycamore Community High School. The purpose of the organization is to act as a medium between the faculty and the student body, to advise ways and. means by which the high school may be made a better school and to direct student activities. ' Membership consists of two representatives from each class and one from each major school organization. The Council has fifteen members exclusive of the president, who is elected by the student body. Meetings are held the lirst and third Tuesday of each month. The activities of the Student Council consist of controlling all social affairs and sponsoring several of their own. The Get Acquainted Dance is always sponsored by the Council in September. The record machine is under the direct supervision of the Council. All the student suggestions and complaints are taken under advisement by the group. Thus valuable experience is gained by the students elected to this body. This year the Council sponsored a magician show so that eight members might attend the State Conventions of the Illinois Association of Student' Councils which was held at Peoria on April 12 and 13. The advisor for the Council this year was Mr. Schrader. The oflicers were: President, Ted Andersong Vice- President, jim Potterg and Secretary-Treasurer, Nancy Slezak.

The sponsors of the Spartan Club are Mr. Stromboin and Mr. Schrader. The regular meeting of the club is held once a month. The club, this year, has sponsored many student activities. These included ushering at games, the spring box- ing tournament, and the annual Spartan Dance. The long awaited-for and secret Spartan initiation was held shortly after the basketball season was over. At this time fourteen new members were added to the Club to make a total of thirty-one members. The boys who had earned the right to be members brought the makings for a pot-luck dinner at the initiation. After the food had disappeared, the new members were submitted to the trying ordeal of proving themselves worthy of being Spartans. All fourteen boys survived and became full-fledged Spartan Club members, thus gaining the right to wear Spartan sweaters. The ofhcers of the club this year were Duane Ells, president, and Ted Anderson, secretary-treasurer. 934,44 lst Row: Eunice Yardley, Marilyn Miller, Audrey Knudsen, Mary Katherine Conlon, Miss Coady, Rachel Buettell, Betty Eltlund Dorothy Meier 2nd Row: Dorothy Johnson, Grace Matteson, Juanita McMillan, Fran Tome, Ruby London, Jerene Sweclberg, Elaine Chris- - tiansen, Gloria Thurnau, Harriet Deisz 3rd Row: Janice Sellers, Frances Conley, Marilyn Harding, Rose Gray, l.aVonne Sparrow, Betty Swedberg, Marilyn Gilmore, Katie Joslyn, Shirley McGetrick 4th Row: Marion Lindberg, Betty Nowlen, Arline Swanson, Doris Hillquist, Nancy Seymour, Hallie .Belle Mathews, Arliss Mat- teson, Venita McMillan, Doris Slezak "Great Caesar's ghost!" Everyone who saw those innocent Freshies on initiation day could make a similar remark. The torturing up- perclassmen made such a mess of their faces'by plastering them with cold cream and powder that hardly one of them was recognizable. They were required to have thirteen pigtails, one of which had to be fastened to the mid- dle of the forehead with a piece of tape. The rest of the apparel they donned looked as had or worse than their faces. Besides waiting upon the old members all day, they met in the gym that night for an informal initiation. After each initiate had taken her turn at doing some silly stunt, she was ofhcially inducted into the organization in a short formal initiation at the close of the party. The outdoor sport for fall was speedball. Many girls participated in the games which were played on Tues- day and Thursday of every week. During late fall the energetic gals tested their skills on the volleyball court. Bowling and basketball proved to be popular winter sports. Every Yvednesday afternoon eight alleys were crowded with enthusiastic "femme" bowlers. You should have seen those pins fall-or did they? This year the live girls with the highest averages bowled in a state-wide telegraphic tournament, placing seventh in the district. Those who bowled in the tournament were as follows: Marilyn Lloyd, Barbara Denby, Gertrude Johnson, Arline Swanson, and jane Hayes. Ten GAA. girls also entered the telegraphic basket-shooting tournament on March 26 sponsored by the state association. 1 g,4.,4. ,,,Nv,,,,,,,,, , ,, 'lst Row: Norma Anderson, Barbara Denby, Dolores Meier, Miss Coady, Jaqueline Whitman, Jeanie Maclean, Gail Parks 2nd Row: Judy Wade, Jean Rubeck, Georgia Howe, Melody Holt, Barbara Jahns, Doris Daniels, Peggy Kullembcrh, JUNE?

Throughout all seasonal sports attendance records were extremely good. This record helped to increase the num- ber of awards presented on Class Day. On February 9, sixty girls and their hand-picked escorts danced to the lively tunes of the Melody Makers, a twelve-piece orchestra from lvest Chicago. Yep! it was the G..-LA. dance-high-light of all G.,-LA. events. The gym was transformed into a Chinese gardan complete with a quaint bridge over a pool and several illuminated, decorative lanterns. Refreshments were served from a gaily decorated table which added to the Oriental atmos- phere. Ollicers for 1946-47 were elected in the spring. These girls were entitled to attend G..-Lt. camp in june at Lake Geneva with the organization helping to pay part of their expenses.

This year the Pep Club was revolutionized by the addition of a few Freshman boys. It's nice to know that the boys are finally taking an interest in the pep organizations. This year we are trying to justify our name and provide a little spark of life in the stands at games. YVe also are adding variety to pep sessions by preparingt a few skits to accompany the usual cheers. Miss Coady, as ad- visor, helped the members of the skit committee in preparation of these, and she worked with the cheerleaders on new cheers. At the last basketball pep session, held in the gym before the tournament, the band, cheerleaders, and Pep Club joined forces to make the program an extra special one. A Pep Club sponsored dances and promoted a general feeling of good will toward opposing teams by exhibiting good sportsmanship and courtesy whenever possible. Immediately following the basketball season, the Pep Club gave a dinner for the boys who had participated in football and basketball. This was enjoyed by all who attended it. The ollicers for 1945-46 were as follows: Marylou Horne, Presidentg Margaret Miner, Vice-Presidentg Jeanne Smith, Secrctaryg Melody Holt, Treasurerg Audrey McCullah, Student Council representativeg and Norma Ander- son, Skit Chairman. , 'lst Row: Mr. Terrell, Clark Rich, Donald Kallembach, Ronald Jackson, John Williams, Leonard Kallemlaach, Orville Cham- bers, Sam Kocher 2nd Row: Donald Stearns, Lester Wolfe, Gordon Williams, Richard Hall, Donald Burrow, Robert Kenneway, William Rob- erts, James Bell, William Gustafson, Lyle Medine 3rd Row: Leonard Wolfe, Marvin Roush, George Clark, Sylvester Hofbauer, Ralph McCall, Arden Carlson, James Schwab, Francis Vosburgh, Robert Rebhorn, Arthur Eberly 4th Row: Ray Bergeson, Elvin Carlson, Wesley Elliott, Alvin Mirotznik, Gordon Jones, Melvin Johnson, John Rich, LaVerne Gronherg, Wilfred Deutsch, LeRoy Lindhlom H ' After seventeen years of service, the Sycamore chapter of the Future Farmers of America is still continuing to further the interests of agriculture in this community.

Idefetfa jk? Hfftterf of p0l'LZ6U'lC2 Friday evening, March 22, the students of Sycamore High School presented the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, "The Pirates of Penzance." The operetta was directed by Miss Allene Russell, with jean Fellinger and Elise Singer as student directors, and it was accompanied by Doris Slczak and jane Hayes. The first act opens on a rocky seashore on the coast of Cornwall. Samuel QTed jaeksonj, the pirate Lieutenant, and a group of pirates are engaged in a boistrous drinking song. When the song ends, the Pirate King QKeith Sellersj congratulates Frederic Wineent Ahnquistj for today he ranks as a full-grown pirate. Frederic replies that he has done his duty only because he was apprenticed to the band due to a mistake made by Ruth, his nursery- inaid, fShirley MeGetriekj. She was supposed to bind him apprentice to a pilot, but due to bad hearing, bound him to a pirate, Frederic pardons her but -'H ' since his apprenticeship is over, he feels he must devote himself to their extermina- tion. He tries to persuade the King to return to civili- zation with him, but the King says he will live and die a Pirate King. Samuel, the pirates, and the King. leave the stage, but Ruth and Frederic remain. Ruth tries to talk him into allowing her to stay with him, and after an argument he agrees to do so. At this . moment a bevy of beautiful maidens appear, and Fred- eric turns upon Ruth, who Hnally leaves in despair. Due to his unsuitable costume, Frederic hides as the girls, who are all daughters of Ma- jor-General Stanley fElliott Doa nej , a p proaeh . ll ls Indeed u Glorious Thing to be a Major-General ,mira Kate Q-leannie Maeleanj, Edith fNorma Swansonj, Isabel flda Arisonj, and the other girls are entraneed with the beauty of the seaside spot, and they decide to take oil their shoes and wade in the. water. However, they are interrupted by Frederic who tells them he is a pirate. At this, the girls immediately reject him, and they 'will 'not listen to him as he sings, "Oh, Is There Not One Maiden Breast." At the end of this song, Mabel fDorls Hillqutstj. the youngest daughter of Major-General Stanley, appearsg and she and Frederic fall in love. ' W At this point the pirates, with matrimonial plans in mind, enter and seize the girls. The Major- Qeneral ap- pears, and he demands to know what is going on. A humorous tangle of words develops between the King and the Major-General. In the finale of the hrst act, the Major-General gains permission from the pirates to depart nw-ith his daughters. This is done by telling the pirates he is an orphan, and thus working upon their credulous simplicity. The setting of act two is V at night in a ruined chapel -'T'T"' ' on the estate of the Major- General. He is surrounded by his daughters, and present- ly Mabel and Frederic join them. The General learns that Frederic will lead an ex- pedition against the pirates that night, and he asks if lfrederic's followers are pre- pared. lfrederic replies that they are. The policemen enter, led by the Sergeant fliruee Hudsonj and burst forth in a gallant marching song. - Undauniecl Men in Blue pefetta Ah, Leave Me Not You May Go, For You're at liberty False One io Deceive Me After Mabel and the chorus leave, and Ruth and the Pirate King enter. They inform Frederic that he is still bound to them, due to the fact that he was born in leap year on Feb. 29 and hc is thus only live and a quarter years old, counting by birthdays. Frederic again becomes one of the band, and the King, upon learning of the Major-General's deception, decides to attack the General's castle that vcry night. Frederic pleads with them, but they take their leave. Mabel enters, and Frederic explains the situation to her. He then bids her farewell, after promising to return for her in 1960. She calls in the police and orders them to capture the pirates, alone. The pirates are heard approaching, and the police conceal themselves. The daughters enter, curious to know why the Ma- jor'General, who knows something is about to happen, has not yet gone to bed. The pirates declare themselves, only to be in- terrupted by the police, who bid them yield in Queen Victoria's name. This they do, and the police are about to take them agvay when Ruth reveals that they are all noblemen who have gone Wrong. Then everyone is forgiven, and the ex-pirates win t e girls.

The members worked on the revision of the school handbook called the "Navigator" This book is to be given out to all freshmen upon their entering school, to help them with all information concerning school rules, courses, and activities. This society also helped with library work and received the paid hnes for overdue books for their treasury. The main service of this organization was to give awards to one outstanding student from the freshman class and to one from the sophomore class. The same standards were to be met by these honored students as were met by the members of the National Hon- or Society. The winners were given due recognition on Class Day. The oflicers of this society for this year were as follows: William lVesterbeck, President: Marvin Roush, Vice- Presidentg Doris Hillquist.

A total of twenty-one boys reported for the First practice session, only live of which were from last year's heavyweight squad. The first week of practice dealt mainly with fundamentals and with the picking of each boy for the position in which he would be best suited. . The Spartans opened the season with the annual game with DeKalb, Sycamore's traditional rival. The game was held at DeKalb on the night of September 14. DeKalb, as iii past years, held a decisive advantage in weight and substitutions. The Spartans, captained by Duane Ells, gave the Barbs a hard battle throughout the game. The Barbs' defense prevented the Spartans from ever seriously threatening and DeKalb led at the half, 14-0, and at the game's end by a score of 20-0. As in the past years, there was no lightweight game. On September 22 the Spartans journeyed by bus to Batavia for their first conference game. A muddy field, caused by the rain throughout the game, catised both teams to fumble a great deal, with Batavia crashing in on two Spartan fumbles in the Hrst half for touchdowns and on two intercepted passes in the second period to win by a score of 25-6. Don Hale scored for the Spartans in the third quarter on an end around play. The Spartans fought hard throughout the game but were unable to overcome the hardship of the muddy Held. lotta!

The highlight of the afternoon was Gerald Fraunberg's long touchdown run early in the game, which was nullihed because of a backheld in motion penalty. The Spartans came back strongly a week later, on Sept. 29, against a strong Dundee team. Dundee's speedy Ed Unruh took the opening kickoff and ran it back for a touchdown. The Spartans catne back again, but lost the ball at midfield on a fumble. Dundee then proceeded downfield for the second touchdown of the game. Don Hale took a pass on the 30 yard line the second quarter for the Spartan's only touchdown of the game. Westerbeck made the extra point which made the half-time score, Dundee 14, Sycamore 7. The Cardinals tallied another touchdown and extra point in the third quarter to win by a score of 21-7. Coach Schrader's Ponies, were upset by a strong Dundee Lightweight team to the llllle of 26-0. The Dundee team outweighed the Ponies and tallied three touchdowns without much difhculty during the first half. On October 6, the Spartans traveled to Geneva for their third conference game. Geneva managed to squeeze out a I3-0 victory over Coach Stromhom's scrappet' Spartans after a hard-fought and close game. The Spartans received two very tough breaks, when two touchdown passes were dropped, one in the end zone and the other on the goal line. The Geneva lights handed Coach Schrader's Ponies their third conference loss in a closely contested game by a score of I4-0. Both teams were scoreless up to the last live minutes of the game when Geneva scored two touch- downs on passes. , 57 flwflaff On October I3 the Spartans tangled with St. Charles on the home field. St. Charles dominated the game almost entirely af- ter Don Gustafson and "Stub" London went out of the game because of injuries. The Saints scored two touchdowns on passes and then the Spartans scored on an end around play by Don Hale to make the halftime score St. Charles 14, Sycamore 6. The Saints came back strongly in the second period to score three touchdowns and an extra point to win the game by a score of 31-6. Coach Schrader's Ponies displayed their scoring power in a very closely contested battle with the Saint lightweights. The game was a see-saw affair with both teams scoring freely. The Sycohi lights led up until the last two minutes of play by a score of 21-18, when a Saint pass was completed for a touchdown to win the game 24-21. On October 20 the Spartans met the Naperville Redskins at the Naperville home Held. The Redskins went on a scoring spree, running up a score of 54-0. The Spartans never gave up trying, as was well displayed by Chester Wig and his hard tackling and lighting spirit throughout the game. The Spartans were also hampered by the loss of four first-string men-Ken Rudy, injured at Bataviag Don Gustafson and LaVern London, both hurt in the St. Charles gameg and co-captain Duane Ells who was injured in the first quarter of the Naperville game. Sycamore's lightweights suffered a conference loss at Naper- ville by a score of 28-13. The Redskin lights took full advantage of their superior weight, scoring on long drives downlield. Fraunberg contributed one of the Spartan touchdowns on a long end run, and Troeger scored the other on a trick pass. The Spartans met West Chicago on their lield on October 27. The boys thoroughly outplayed the Wegoes in the iirst half, goofgaf but fumbles and inistaekles in the second half gave West Chi- cage a 21-0 win over the Spartans. The Ponies were defeated in a close game with the Wego lightweights by a score of 13-6. The game was very close with both teams in scoring territory a number of times. The Spartan's final conference opponent was WVhcaton, who turned out to be the Little Seven Conference Champions of 1945 by defeating Naperville 13-6. The game between Sycamore and Wheaton was held at Sycamore on November 3. The Spartans held Wheaton scoreless until the Final minutes of the hrst half when Wheaton completed a trick pass for a touchdown. Whea- tons weight advantage began to tell in the second half, as they moved downfield to score another touchdown in the third quar- ter. The Spartans fought back hard and held the Tigers score- less in the last quarter untilthe last few minutes when a Spar- tan kick was blocked on the five yard line. WVheaton drove over for a touhcdown to win by a score of 19-O. The Spartans dis- played a great deal of spirit and hght throughout the game. The Ponies came through with their first conference win by beating Wheaton by a score of I3-6, in a very close and exciting game. Fraunberg scored both Pony touchdowns-the first on a line plunge and the second on an end nun. The Spartans never stopped fighting although they were out-weighed in every game they played. They should be, con- gratulated for the fnht they displayed even though they were a losing team. Howard Scott was given a first-string guard po- sition on the Little Seven Conference Team, with Don Hale on the second team as an end, and Duane Ells received honorable mention in the backlield. Co-captains this year were Duane Ells and Bill WVester beck. gan!-efgaf 0bLI'IlCl.l'neflf in The team enjoyed a successful year, winning 18 of 26 games. Three of the defeats were by Dundee who eventually finished number three in the State Tournament. Eight of the first ten players will be lost through graduation, and it will he a hard job to replace such players as Anderson, Vlesterbeck, Lindstrom, Ells, and johnson. Best of luck to the team next year. MR. SCHRADER TED ANDERSON -made a line record as a high school player. He played the last part of his sophomore year on the varsity team, and as a junior lhe played regular for- ward on the varsity. This last season he was the second highest point maker in the Little Seven Conference, and he set a new conference free throw rec- ord. having made a total of 79. He was elected captain of the team of 1945- 46. DUANE ELLS -a flashy little player-very good on defense and a good floor man on offense. He played his best ball of the season during the Regional Tourna- ments. Very good to follow training rules and a fine all around boy. DON GUSTAFSON -one of the two juniors on the tournament squad. Don is a good shot from the floor and should develop in- to a line player next year. He played as a regular guard a good portion of the year and contributed his share to a successful season. ' W ESLEY JOHNSON -returned from Uncle Sam's team to help us complete the season with a good strong finish. Although not in the best playing condition, his cool- headed leadership helped to steady the team, and he ably contributed to the winning of the Regional title. FRED LARSON -lack of experience is all that pre- vented Fred from being a star center. He is a very good shot around the bas- ket as well as being a rugged defen- sive player. His performance against Somonauk was the highlight of his career. BOB LIN DSTROM -played a guard and performed very well. He played as a regular dur- ing most of his senior year, but was handicapped somewhat by illness and injuries. His best game was played against Dundee at Dundee. LAVERN LONDON -the second of the two juniors, played a reserve guard and performed in a creditable manner. He should. be one of the stars of next year's team. CLARK RICH ' -played a line game of basketball, and lack of previous experience is all that prevented him from becoming a regular on the team. He was used pri- marily as a reserve player and always came through when called upon lo perform. JIM PATTERSON ' -a fine manager. Always thought- ful and competent, jim took very good care of the team as well as the equip- ment during the past season. DONALD HALE -was a good lightweight player and proved to be a good standby on the varsity. His best performances were against Dundee as a junior when he scored I9 points, and this last season against Hampshire when he scored 23 points to help win the Regional Championship. BILL WESTERBECK -played as a regular during his junior and senior years. He was an outstanding defensive player, and was usually assigned to guard the high scorer of the opposing team. His spec- tacular shooting during thc Hnal game of the Regional Tournament turned the tide of victory in Sycamore's favor. gaaaefdaf BCl,5L2tA6L! ecwyweigdfd 'lst Row: Duane Ells, Robert Lindsrrom, Donald Hale, Theodore Anderson, William Wesierlaeck, Wesley Johnson. 2nd Row: Mr. Schrader, l.aVern London, Clark Rich, Fred Larson, Don Gustafson, James Patterson. 3rd Row: James Potter, Donald Tedford, Theodore Jackson, Richard Smith, John Rich, Edwin Harding. Sycohi's 1945-46 heavyweight basketball season began on Nov. 7 with the Spartans first practice session. From the twenty-one boys who reported for this practice, fifteen were chosen by Coach Schrader for this year's squad. They were Don Hale, Ted Anderson, Bill lllesterbeck, Duane lills, Bob I.indstrom, Fred Larson, Dick Smith, .lim Potter, Clark Rich, john Rich, Rex Morrison, Don Tedford, Ted jackson, Don Gustafson, and I.aVern London. Hale, Anderson, lills, and Xllesterback returned from the first team of the previous ycarg and Larson, Lindstrom, and john Rich made up the remainder of the boys back from last year's squad. The rest of the boys came up from the lightweights. The Spartans began their 20-game schedule on November 21, by thoroughly trouncing Maple Park, 52-283 Coach Schrad- er's starting line-up for this game, and the following seventeen, was as follows: forwards, Hale and VVesterheckg guards, Ells and Lindstromg and .at center, captain Ted Anderson. Sycamore entered the Holiday Tournaments at the Northern Illinois State Teachers College in DeKalb on Dec. 26, 1945. The Spartans defeated a favored Rock Island team by a score of 40-30. The following night lvest Aurora out-rebounded the Spartans, and emerged with a 50-37 victory thus eliminating Sycamore from the tournament. YVesley Johnson, who left Syeohi in his junior year to enlist in the U. S. Navy, received his honorable discharge in February. 1946, and returned to Syeohi to take up his basketball career where he left it two years ago, Yves proved to be a very valuable asset to the team because of his excellent lloormanship, good judgment, and ability to come through with points whenever they were needed. This year the Spartans rated fourth in the Little Seven Conference with nine wins and five losses. Ted Anderson took second place in conference individual scoring with 415 points in 22 games, and he took first place in completed free-throws having 79 to his credit. The Regional Tournament, held this year at Sycamore, began on Feb. 26, 1946, with Sycamore defeating l'Vaterman, 27- 28. ln the second game that evening Hampshire was victorious over Shabbona, 51-20. The next night the winners were DeKalb over Genoa and Marengo over Burlington. Sycamore took Halnpshire on Thursday night by a score of 54-42 with Hale tally- ing 23 points. Marengo dumped a favored DeKalb team the same night, 27-21. The Spartans beat Marengo in the champion- ship game on Friday night for the Regional Championship. The hnal game was a basket-for-basket affair during the first quarter, but from there on, it was all Syeohi. The Spartans pulled steadily away under the sharp eye of captain Ted An- derson, who rang up 24 points, most of which he collected in the last half. The final score was Sycamore 44, Marengo 26. 62 Z?aaLefLa! The Spartans played Dundee, 1945-46 Little Seven Champs, at Proviso of May- wood in the second game of the sectional tournament on the evening of March 8. A red-hot Dundee team defeated the Spartans by a score of 50-34. Anderson was high point man for the Spartans with 15 points and Grover of Dundee tallied the same number. The boys who will be back next year from the heavyweight squad are Don Gustafson, Ted Jackson, Dick Smith, jim Potter, Lavern London, and Rex Morris- son. These boys will bc helped considerably by some very up-and-coming light- weights such as Richard Troegcr, Art Gilmore, and Gerald Fraunbcrg. VARSITY GAMES OF 1945-46 1J,'Yl'li S. C.-H. S.

Coach Leland Strombom's "Ponies" began their 1945-46 basketball season on November 7, 1945. Coach had a large number of boys reporting for practice that day, thus making it necessary to cut the squad down to three teams, or fifteen boys. The fifteen boys chosen were Gerald Fraunberg, Sam Kocher, Dick Shields, Richard Troeger, Bob Reuss, Robert Brooke, Art Gilmore, Art Nuckles, Joe Lee, Emmett McLean, Charles lvynn, "Mose" Kings- north, Bob Smith, Gene Haugen, and "Swede" Higgins. From these fifteen boys Coach Strombom's starting hvc in the first game of the year were Fraunberg, Troeger, Gilmore, McLean, and Smith. Richard Troeger was elected captain for the lightweights. Troeger was high point man for the lightweighls this year with 169 points in 20 games. I-Ie played forward the first part of the year and center the latter part. Gerald Fraunberg followed closely behind Troeger in scoring with 153 points in 18 games. Fraunberg played for- ward all year and proved to be a very valuable player. The lightweights lost the services of Art Gilmore on january 18 when Art turned 17 years of age, making him ineligible to play lightweight basketball. Two outstanding highlights of the lightweight season were made possible by the smallest and most cool-headed player on the squad, Orville Kingsnorth. In the game at Geneva on December 7, 1945, the score was tied at 21-all when "Mose" received a pass down the floor, dribbled in, and made the basket just as the busier sounded for the end of the game. Sycohi won 23-21. The second highlight took place in the first game with our neighboring rival, DeKalb, on january 15. With about a minute and a half to go, the Sycohi ponies were trailing by two points, 22- 20. "Mose" dribbled down the floor and sank a long shot to tie the game at 22-all. He came right back a few seconds later and sank another long shot to put Sycamore ahead, and then just before the game ended, he put through another long shot for good' measure. This made the final outcome Sycamore 26, DeKalb 22. The lightweights had a very good season this year, winning 17 games and losing 3, two of which were to the undefeated Little Seven Lightweight Champs, Dundee. The Sycohi ponies finished up in second place in the Little Seven Conference. A From the pony hrst team, three boys will be playing heavyweight ball next year. They are Richard Troeger, Gerald Fraunberg, and Emmett McLean. Dale November 21 November 30 December 1 December 7 December 8 December 14 ....., .

With Ted Anderson swiftly pros the cases, and executioners Rudy and Shott fairly meti justice, the cases against the frosh were quickly run off.
