INTRODUCTION 



In this compact survey of the year's activities, travel plays an important role. Always on 
the go, members of the JJC student body and faculty have made the country's oldest public 
junior college known and respected throughout the nation. 

The fact that JJCers are usually seen traveling together vividly illustrates the spirit of 
unity felt by all who enter the college. Travel with us then, as we recollect the year's events and 
those who took part in them at JJC, a school of which Illinois residents can rightfully be 
proud, knowing that JJC is doing its job well.

DEDICATION 




DEAN E. W. ROWLEY 



Dean Rowley is one of the busiest persons at 
JJC. He has been Dean of the college for the past 
twelve years. It is his responsibility to help 
students work out their problems, organize 
student activities, plan class programs, assign 
teachers to classes, sign requisitions, and attend 
about forty junior college events, such as dances, 
assemblies, games, meetings, during the year. 

Although he has a lot of work to do he is 
always available to students. Some students may 



have serious problems; others may just want to 
come in and talk with him. Dean Rowley wel- 
comes them all and wants them to know that he 
is interested in each one individually. He enjoys 
working with young people. This can be seen as 
he takes a direct interest in all student activities as 
well as in community affairs. 

To show our appreciation for his many hours 
of effort in our behalf, we, the staff, dedicate the 
1059 SHIELD to Dean Elmer W. Rowley. 




Young people are his specialty 



He enjoys a good joke, too!

SOPHOMORE 
CLASS 



As we, the sophomore class, leave the 
halls of Joliet Junior College we look back 
over the past two years with warm memo- 
ries. Could two years have passed so 
quickly? It hardly seems possible that we 
entered as scared freshmen such a short time 
ago. Remember the awful dragged-out en- 
trance exams we took, then that first fate- 
ful day of registration, the encounters with 
the sophomores and the silly tricks they 
played on us? As school settled down and 
became a routine for us, we found that JJC 
wasn't such a bad place after all; slowly we 
fitted into the pattern by attending football 
games, mixers, skating parties, splash 
parties, homecoming, the fall formal, clubs, 
or any of the other activities which were 
constantly going on. 

We learned though that school life 
wasn't all fun, for there was much work that 
went along with attending the oldest junior 
college in the nation. Themes had to be 
written, term papers compiled, tests and 
exams studied for, endless hours of research 
completed after endless hours in the library 
under Miss Skidmore's watchful eyes; but 
we took all these in our stride for Joliet 
Junior College was fast becoming dear to our 
hearts. 

As spring approached, the spring 
formal was foremost in everyone's mind, 
but it, too, soon passed as did our freshman 
year. In June we bid a melancholy farewell to the sophomores, with whom we had become good friends; 
as they left, we realized that their responsibilities were now ours. 

We began the fall semester with a newly gained dignity, for as sophomores we acquired a new status 
in school life. Although our number was reduced, for some of our classmates transferred to other colleges or 
dropped out for various reasons, the ones that remained were a compact and closely knit group. Members 
of our class were elected to high offices in many of the clubs and a sophomore was elected homecoming 
queen, a fact which made us all quite proud. 

Before we realized it, the first semester was over and the long hours of studying for finals began. 
How could we ever live through those examinations! But we all did, and we all welcomed the semester 
break which followed. During the break some of us went on the ski trip while others simply chose to 
relax at home after a tough semester. 

Again we found that time was flying, and spring had arrived once more. The annual spring formal 
was well attended and was an affair which will always occupy a warm spot in our memories. Soon we 
realized that we were doing many things for the very last time. Our days of sitting in the lounge or 
smoker were almost over, along with our daily trips over to the Lighthouse for coffee. 

On graduation night, as we marched in to the strains of "Pomp and Circumstance," our hearts were 
filled with a mixture of happiness for having achieved our goal; and sadness, because once and for all our 
days at Joliet Junior College were over. 



FROM TOP TO BOTTOM: Dave Imig, president; Carole Sue John- 
son, secretary; Wayne Barnett, vice-president were elected to lead the 
sophomore class in their last year at JJC.

Our 1958-59 crop of Joliet Junior College fresh- 
men began with an enrollment of 435. We gaily 
planned the year and took as our leaders Irwin Mann 
for president, Connie DuBois for vice-president, and 
Joan Shepley for seceretary-treasurer. Our first ven- 
ture into entertainment was the New Year's Eve 
dance where the 1C students danced to the music of 
Buddy Everett. 

By mid-term we had lost a few of our class- 
mates, but those of us who were left carried on. Dur- 
ing the second semester we sponsored the sophomore 
banquet and the spring picnic. And then the year was 
gone ! ! !

The Business Club at JJC provides an extra curricular activity 
that is not only entertaining, but also informative to students in- 
terested in business. 

The club which is sponsored by Miss Emery 

and Mr. Corradetti, held regular meetings 

throughout the year, entertained members by 

having banquets and parties, and also engaged 

some very excellent speakers for 

their special meetings.

much to improve school spirit and help back 
some of the best teams JJC has ever produced.

The choir is one of the largest groups at 
JJC. Each year it sponsors a homecoming float 
and queen candidate, sings for the W.A.L. Christ- 
mas tea, entertains various civic groups in Joliet, 
organizes a swing hand, and presents an annual 
spring musicale. This year the choir not only 
undertook their regular activities, but also pre- 
sented an operetta, "Pep Rally." 

The choir is a very closely knit group which 
meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 
mornings. For this extra curricular activity, the 
members are allotted .5 credit hours per semester.

In this way, the Press Club unites the student body 
by means of the power of the press; however, the 



activities are not limited entirely to journalism. The 
club sponsored queen candidates, gave holiday 
parties, attended conferences, and was very active 
in all other school functions. The club is sponsored

Planning social events, non-social events, and 
acting on behalf of the student body are the main 
purposes of the JJC Student Council. 

Representatives on the council are from all the 
clubs, class officers, and representatives elected at 
large. From these representatives, the officers for 
the fall and spring semesters are chosen. Ron 
Knakmuhs served as president for both semesters. 
Gary Lichtenwalter and Carol Clark served as vice- 
presidents for the fall and spring terms respectively. 
Annette DiLorenzo was chosen secretary for both 
terms. 

The Student Council attends to quite a bit of 
non-social business. Disbursements of activity fees, 
proposed plans for a new JC smoker and cafeteria, 
and general items fall into this category. Thus, the 
council controls a large portion of the school's 
business, under the capable direction of Miss Susan 
Wood, sponsor. 



COUNCIL 

Social events for the school are 
planned by the social council, under the 
sponsorship of Mr. Eugene Bondar. 
Among the events planned were home- 
coming, fall and spring formals, ski trip, 
and all mixers and parties. 

Another committee working under 
the direction of the council is the lounge 
and smoker committee. This committee 
has complete charge of all changes or 
additions to these two vital places in 
the school.

SMS, or the Students of Medical 
Science, is an organization made up of all 
the students registered in the medical 
sciences. Its function is to further pro- 
fessional experience and to attract and 
route the better students into the various 
fields of medicine. It also acts as a testing 
ground for those who are unsure of their 
suitability for medical careers. 

Since its beginning in 1947, SMS has 
traveled about 65,000 miles on over 83 
field trips to eminent medical institutions, 
has had over 77 doctors and professional 
people as speakers, and has been loaned 
hundreds of excellent films for medical 
personnel only from over 100 sources, 
coast to coast. 

The 1958-59 school year has brought 
trips to many hospitals, laboratories, and 
medical institutions in and around the 
Chicago area. Many of our members have 
gained hundreds of hours of priceless ex- 
perience in clinical training while work- 
ing in the local hospitals — a fact which 
makes SMS unique in the world. 

It's been a big year ! ! ! ! !

W.A.L., the Women's Activity League, is a 
newly reorganized club from the discontinued 
W.A.A. of previous years. Its membership is com- 
prised of all women students at the college. 

There were two outstanding events of the 
year, the mother-daughter Christmas tea and the 
annual semi-formal dance held in the early spring. 
The club also sponsored card parties, athletic 
nights, and other social events, which were spon- 
sored by Miss Georgina Smith and Miss Patricia 
Lemanski.

VETERANS 



The Vets' Club of JJC had a busy season 
this year with lots of goings on. Under the 
able direction of Alan Vail, Don Kuna, Rich 
Brandolino, and Joyce Messamore we forged 
our way through the trials and tribulations of 
establishing a functioning Vets' Club. 

Our members have come from the army, 
the navy, the marine corps, the air force, and 
the coast guard. They've traveled from Japan 
to the Suez to Germany. Movies taken during 
our stays in foreign countries were often 
shown at meetings. 

Diane Isberg was sponsored by the club 
for the homecoming queen contest and it was 
a fine feather in our cap when she emerged 
victorious. At Christmas time we sponsored 
a drive for canned foods for needy children. 
Our social event of the year was the "A Night 
in Vegas" dance held in the Elwood Town

Joliet Junior College finished its 1958 football campaign 
with a 2-5-1 overall record and a 1-3-1 record in Illinois 
Junior College Conference play. 

Under the direction of head coach Herm Walser and 
assistant coach George Fahrenholz, the Wolves took a de- 
cisive opening victory over the North Central "B" unit by a 
19-13 score. On their next outing the Wolves faced Morton 
JC of Cicero in the IJCC opener. Joliet defeated Morton 
13-7. 

After these wins the Wolves suffered two setbacks by 
identical scores. Wright JC of Chicago and Grand Rapids, 
Michigan, JC each won by a 39-6 margin. 

Back in Memorial Stadium the Wolves found things a 
little tougher as a power-laden DeKalb junior varsity squad 
hammered them 53-6. 

On the next outing a 76-yard touchdown pass from 
Warren Oldham to Paul Whitmore in the closing minutes 
of the fourth quarter gave Joliet a 20-20 tie with Wilson JC 
of Chicago. In the annual homecoming game the Wolves 
were edged 13-7 by LaSalle-Peru-Oglesby JC. 

Thornton JC of Llarvey spoiled the Wolves' season 
finale by displaying a crushing ground game to post a 26-7 
victory. 

Al Green and Jim Greene, Joliet 's fleet halfbacks, led 
the Wolves in their opening victory and Rich Ginnetti 
sparked the second triumph.

BASKETBALL 



Under the direction of veteran coach A. A. "Fizz" Wills, 
the 1958-59 Joliet Junior College basketball team had a 
banner year. The Wolves met and defeated 1 8 opponents, 
while losing to only six. They were awarded two games by 
forfeit, completed a successful trip to Binghamton, N. Y., 
and finished second in the Illinois Junior College Conference 
winning two hard fought tests, the result a 20-6 record. 

Joliet failed to realize its hopes for a trip to Hutchinson, 
Kansas, for the National Juco Tournament finals. The 
Wolves lost their chance in the semi-finals of the Region 4 
Tournament. 

Ken Rarone, sophomore forward, copped the scoring 
crown with 534 points on 244 field goals and 46 free throws 
for a 22.2 game average. Sophomore guard Harry Ayers 
finished the season in the No. 2 spot with 425 points. He was 
the squad's best marksman, hitting on 182 of 333 shots for a 
.549 percentage. Avers averaged 17.7 per game. 

Joe Pesavento, a freshman starter, took third place 
honors with 393 points and a 16.4 average. He connected on 
163 field shots and led the team with 67 gift shots. 

Larry Waddell, who played 14 games before being 
graduated at mid-year, ended up fourth with 242 points and 
a 17.3 average. He shot a .509 clip, good for third place be- 
hind Rarone's .517 mark. 

Freshman center, Gary I.ichtenwalter, finished with 
127 points. Lichtenwalter was hampered by a heart condition 
that cut his playing time to only about 20 minutes each game. 

Rohby Greene, who played only four games before losing 
his eligibility, finished sixth with 76 points and a 19.0 average. 
Hank Jessen also tallied 76 markers and held a 5.1 average. 

Joliet as a team outscored its opposition 2119 to 1805, 
scoring 894 baskets and 331 free throws. Average-wise the 
Wolves' 88.3 mark was No. 3 in the nation. Joliet hit the 
hoop at a .481 clip while their opponents had only a luke- 
warm .398 mark. 

In the season opener the Wolves dumped Purdue Ex-

tension of Hammond, Ind. 92-48 and the next night ham- 
mered the Glenview Naval Air Station 104-52. 

Game No. 3 saw Joliet take an IJCC win over Morton 
JC, 73-55. Five Wolves scored in double figures with 
Pesavento leading the way with 18. 

Lewis College handed Joliet its first loss, 89-71 in the 
opening round of the Chanute Air Force Rase Tournament. 
Joliet's next loss was to Vincennes JC, 1 18-74, hut this was 
sandwiched between two conference wins. The first was over 
Wilson JC 110-94. In the second win the Wolves spilled 
Crane JC, 90-74 behind the 23 points of Ed Jones. 

The Wolves' next two games were played at Bingham- 
ton, N. Y. Erie County Technical Institute of Ruffalo, N. 
Y. was their first victim in a 62-58 thriller. Broome Tech of 
Binghamton saw a rampaging Joliet team sink 12 straight 
goals to start the game and go on to a 75-66 triumph. 

The Wolves made it four in a row by returning home 
and dumping Wright JC, 75-69 behind Pesavento's 28 points 
and lashing Elgin JC, 98-82 with Waddell, Ayers and Barone 
all hitting in the 20's. 

LaSalle-Peru-Oglesby broke the skein with an 86-81 
upset victory at LaSalle. Joliet was burdened by 30 personal 
fouls and Waddell's 29 points effort went in vain. 

Joliet came back from this demoralizing defeat to rack 
Grand Rapids JC, 97-84, blast Glenview 100-40 and smash 
Thornton JC 107-66 in three home court battles. Barone 




Joe Pesnvento 



fired in 32 against Grand Rapids with 24 coming in the first 
20 minutes. Waddell hit 22 in his last game against Glen- 
view and Pesavento sparked the Thornton rout with 29. 

On the next road trip the Wolves dropped Wheaton 
JV 90-77 and North Central "B" 104-70. Pesavento and 
Barone took honors against Wheaton with 26 and 20 respec- 
tively, while Greene was high with 25 against North Central. 
Moline JC, behind the 35-point effort of Ron Sargeant, 
snapped this six-game streak by edging Joliet 87-86 in a 
double overtime bout. Ayers, with 28, led the Wolves in this 
50 minute heartbreaker. 

Closing out the regular schedule the Wolves took a 
conference win over LaGrange JC 89-58, a non-conference 
win over Western Illinois "B" 95-91, and lost to Purdue Ex- 
tension 85-64. Ayers was good for 30 against Western. 

In the opening round of the Region 4 Tournament at 
LaSalle, Joliet clobbered Crane JC 112-95. This was victory 
No. 20, the squad's highest total point production, and the 
sixth time they crashed the century mark. Barone established 
another season high with 38 points, Ayers tossed in 29, and 
Pesavento chipped in 22. Joliet had its biggest second half 
total of 64 points, and shot at their highest clip, .600 per cent. 

The season ended on a sour note as the L-P-O Apaches 
dropped the Wolves in the tourney semi-finals, 87-69. Ayers 
led Joliet with 23. 

Post-season honors were accorded Ayers and Barone. 
Ayers was selected to Erie Tech's All-Opponent team, and 
both were nominated for the junior college All-American 
squad. Pesavento, along with Ayers and Barone, was men- 
tioned as All-Conference picks.

REGISTRATION 
DAYS 



Mr. Drew Castle and Miss Grayce Stadler are giving information to 
Ken Grohar, Bob k'ozlowski, and Jim Monce on sophomore registra- 
tion day. 



Who could ever forget that hectic day of 
registering for the fall term? Those long hours of 
waiting seemed as if they would never end. If you 
were a freshman, there was the standing in line for 
a physical, to see your adviser, making out 
schedules, and paying out money. For the sopho- 
mores it wasn't quite so bad; no physicals were 
required, which meant one less line to stand in, but 
everything else was about the same. And after you 
finally finished standing in lines you went to look 
for your locker, only to find it was on the third 



floor completely isolated from your classes. And 
with that last cheerful thought in your mind you 
went home to Wilmington, Lockport, Plainfield, 
Peotone, Minooka, New Lenox, Morris, Coal City, 
Yorkville, Manhattan, Crete, Mokena, Frankfort, 
some other neighboring town, or maybe right in 
Joliet, to await for the fateful day of Friday when 
your classes really began. 

All told, there were 673 of us junior collegians 
who registered for the fall term at Joliet Junior 
College.

JC PICNIC 

The sophomores played host to the 
freshmen at the first organized social 
event of the school year. After those 
two nerve-wracking days of register- 
ing, making out schedules, and get- 
ting organized in general; it was a 
welcomed treat both for the students 
and the faculty to go to the picnic and 
"let off steam." 

Over 300 students attended the 
event where they consumed 500 
barbecues, 400 bottles of pop, and 
stacks of other food. After eating, the 
traditional tug of war between the 
sophomores and the freshmen was 
held; it ended with a surprise when 
the rope broke leaving both sophs 
and freshies on the ground with in- 
jured dignities. 

It was agreed upon by all that the 
JC fall picnic of 1958 will always re- 
main as a fond memory. 




Some of the committee who worked so hard to make the picnic a success are 
caught by the camera in unusual positions. They are: David Imig, Jim Monce, 
Janet Zimmerman, Annette DiLorenzo, Nat Radakovich, Carol Sue Johnson, 
and Wayne Barnett is "balancing" in the foreground. 




Dave Imig is busy dishing out barbecues for the starving Diane Isberg, Bev Bettenhausen, Sandy Starr, Wilma Schuldt, and 
picnickers. Barb Butterfield, the chief cooks for the day, seem to have something 

in the beans. What's the secret girls?

HOMECOMING ACTIVITIES 




A group of JC students seem to be enjoying them- 
selves at the mixer held in Buchanan Hall after the 
bonfire. Mr. Waltz was the object of their merri- 
ment. Some fun??!! 



Homecoming, 1958, began on a cold Friday night with 
the traditional bonfire being held at the Collins Street Field. 
Over one hundred of us junior collegians braved the cold 
weather to come out and cheer for our team. Wayne Barnett 
acted as master of ceremonies, and as usual he was hilarious. 
Coach Herm Walser introduced the football team, and Dean 
Rowley added his thoughts on homecoming. 

From the field we all went over to Buchanan Hall, where 
a mixer was in progress. Pat Barrowman sang a song for us, 
and Mr. Waltz did some of his ever-popular pantomimes. 
Then the moment finally arrived that everyone had been 
waiting for in high suspense. Our Student 
Council president, Ron Knakmuhs, was given 
the envelope that held the name of the girl 
to reign as queen over the 1958 homecoming 
activities. Diane Isberg, the Vets' candidate 
was announced as the winner.

wonderment at the

HOMECOMING ACTIVITIES 



Homecoming activities resumed 
early Saturday morning on the black 
top as JC students came to work on 
the floats for the parade. Despite the 
cold weather the black top was the 
scene of feverish work all day long, 
starting bright and early at 8:00 a.m. 
and never letting up till all floats were 
completed at 5:30. Main activities oc- 
cupying the float builders time were 
sawing, pounding, cutting, hammering, 
painting, and, of course, stuffing nap- 
kins. Remember all the scratches and 
cuts from the chicken wire? 

Finally, after a day of labor and 
worry, all floats were finished and 
ready for judging, which took place 
shortly before parade time. The ques- 
tion in everyone's mind was who would win. 

Parade time arrived, and the floats left with a 
police escort for the stadium and the football game. 
The chilled procession got to the field with only 
a few minor mishaps, just in time to cheer the foot-

ball team as they entered the field. At 
half-time ceremonies, Ron Knakmuhs, 
Student Council president, crowned 
Diane Isberg queen and introduced her 
court. The presentation of all the floats 
followed as they went around the 
track, and then the winners were an- 
nounced. JC Players and Choir shared 
first place honors and received the 
applause of the homecoming crowd. 
With half-time ceremonies ending, the 
football game was continued and the 
JC Wolves lost to LaSalle-Peru-Ogles- 
by with a score of 1 3-7. 

The homecoming dance was held 
in the girls' gym at the school. Queen 
Diane cut the victory cake with the as- 
sistance of Joe Gariboldi, football 
captain. As the last song was played and home- 
coming ended, all work and trouble was forgotten 
and only pleasant memories of a wonderful time 
remained — Homecoming 1958. 




The ^ 
Top" 

One of the floats that tied for first 
place honors was the entry by JC Play- 
ers. The eighteen-foot-tall billboard 
listed the Wolves as the "Twenty-six 
Angry Men." Besides being the tallest 
item in the parade, it also was unique in 
that it could be collapsed in order to go 
through underpasses. Bob Almasy, Pat 
Ward, Jeanne Williams and Bruce 
Binder, members of JC Players, rode on 
the float.— CONGRATULATIONS!!! 



The other float that tied for first 
place honors was constructed by the 
Choir. The large gold-and-blue trumpet 
depicted that we would "Blow Them 
Down!" An interesting attraction about 
the float was the fact that a small combo 
rode on it and played popular jazz num- 
bers throughout the course of the 
JC Player's float tied for parade.-CONGR ATULATIONS ! ! 

first place in the homecom- 
ing parade. 



SMOKER and LOUNGE 




With free time on our hands, where did we 
JC students go to spend it? There were many 
places where we might have been found, — the 
library, cafeteria or in the halls, but two of the 
most popular spots proved to be the smoker and 
the lounge. 

At any time of the day, from early in the morn- 
ing to the end of the last period, loud voices and a 
radio blasting the latest rock J n roll tunes through 
a thick haze of smoke set the typical scene of the 
smoker. Remember the mad dash to the smoker 
for a quick cigarette between classes? Or the old 
friend who always appeared to "bum" a cigarette 
from you, managing to take your last one. Second 
semester found a new addition to the smoker. A 



coke machine was installed by the Student Council 
and proved to be successful. 

Many contented minutes were spent in the 
lounge, either doing homework or just listening to 
Hi-Fi music. It became a haven for all who wanted 
to escape the rigid routine of school life. At any 
time at least one of our junior collegians could be 
found stretched out full length enjoying a quick 
ten minute nap before his next class. In addition to 
the weekly Student Council meetings, many of the 
other clubs made use of the lounge for their meet- 
ings. 

These two places were, indeed, an important 
part of our life at Junior College and will join our 
many other pleasant memories that will never be 
forgotten. 






FALL FORMAL 




The chilly evening of November 28, 1958, ushered 
in the annual fall formal, this year entitled "Blues in the 
Night." The Joliet Junior College scored another hit by 
having Louis Armstrong, the fabulous and world-famous 
jazz artist, provide the musical tones. 

Upon entering, couples were greeted by eye catch- 
ing decorations which carried out the theme in detail. 
Silhouettes of jazz men and buildings covered the walls, 
while in the middle of the false ceiling hung a sparkling

using different shades of blue as background material. 
"Satchmo" was showcased in the center of the combined 
gyms atop a revolving platform decorated so as to typify 
a traditional American jazz group in action. 

None of us will ever forget the tremendous show put 
on by Louie and his All-Stars as they blasted through the 
night with jumping musical vibrations. So ended one of 
the greatest fall formals in the annals of the Joliet Junior 
College.

CHRISTMAS PARTIES 




Bruce Rungaitis, caught by 
while doing his hula dance. 




As December finally rolled around on the 
calendar Joliet Junior College students began to 
think in terms of vacation and parties. Two of the 
parties that proved to be the most popular were the 
ones sponsored by the Business Club and the 
Social Council. Bruce Rungaitis served as chairman 
of the Associated Business Students' event which 
was held at Marquette Hall. The hall was decorated 
with a typical Christmas theme and the entertain- 
ment consisted of dancing, refreshments, and a 
program which proved to be quite hilarious. Bruce 
entertained everyone with his special adaption of a 
"genuine" hula dance. 

The other party given December 19 at 
Buchanan Hall by the Social Council had Pat Ward 
and Jack Lambakis as general chairmen. After 
dancing and group singing a program was pre- 
sented which was highlighted by a visit from the 
three chipmunks singing their hit recording. Santa 
Claus made a surprise entrance and brought ap- 
propriate gifts to some of the deserving JC students 
who had written him letters. 

These two parties and the many others that 
were held all helped to make Christmas at Joliet 
funior College a memorable one! 




Santa Clans (played by Ron Knakmuhs) 
dropped in and surprised everyone with a 
cheery "Ho! Ho! Ho! and MERRY 
CHRISTMAS TO ALL."

NEW YEAR'S EVE 
DANCE 

The Freshman class again sponsored the an- 
nual New Year's Eve dance which was held this 
year in the combined gyms. Approximately 500 
couples came to welcome in the New Year by at- 
tending the dance. Buddy Everett's orchestra pro- 
vided the musical background for the enchanted 
couples as they dreamily whirled their way 
through the evening. As the magic hour of mid- 
night arrived, the whole gym was transformed 
into a wild scene of confetti and confusion as 
hundreds of bright colored balloons floated down 
from above the dancers. 

With a bit of sadness we said goodbye to 
1958 and its good times, and all its troubles were 
forgotten with the arrival of the new year. Nine- 
teen fifty-nine began with new hope for a bright 
future and more fun to come.

W.AL. CHRISTMAS TEA 




W.A.L. gave their first annual 
Mother-Daughter Tea for the members 
and their mothers. In previous years the 
tea had been presented as one of the 
W.A.A. projects, but since the organiza- 
tion was terminated this year the job was 
taken over by the newly formed W.A.L. 

The tea was held in the dance studio, 
which was decorated appropriately along 
the Christmas theme. Donna Line wel- 
comed all the mothers and daughters 
present and introduced the program 
which consisted of Christmas selections 
by the JC Choir, under the direction of 
Dr. Hal Dellinger. 

Following the program, refreshments 
were served. Thus ended another ac- 
tivity enjoyed by JC students. 



Mrs. William Zimmerman and daughter, Jan, are being served 
by Mrs. E. W. Rowley, and pictured below are some of the offi- 
cers' mothers: Mrs. John Line, Mrs. Donald Johnson, Mrs. 
Bernard Ward, and Mrs. Albert Clark.

"IRON MOUNTAIN 
OR BUST!" — with these 
challenging words, a merry 
group of thirty Joliet Junior 
College students set off for a 
week end of skiing and fun at 
Iron Mountain, Michigan. 
As the final bell rang ending 
semester exams, the would- 
be skiers and sponsor, Mr. 
Bondar, loaded suitcases and 
equipment on a bus and pre- 
pared to trade the level Joliet 
terrain for the hilly, mountainous scene of Michi- 
gan's Upper Peninsula. 

Early Saturday morning found the skiers some- 
what bewildered but bravely buckling on their skis 
at the bottom of famous Pine Mountain. All the ex- 
perts said the skiing conditions were ideal, but then 
who out of the group was an expert? After much 
hesitation the skiers began slipping and sliding their 
way down the slopes; by midday there was boasting 
and some of the over-confident JC wolves decided 
to try their skill (or should I say skis?) on the 
steeper slopes. By some miracle all made it safely 
through the first day of skiing and were ready for an 
evening of ice skating, tobogganing, dancing, or any 
one of numerous activities offered.

fine early morning. Jim Agazzi, Carole Johnson, Nat Rada- 
kovich, George Hendricks, and Jan Zimmerman make up the 
smiling group of five. 



TRIP 



Nat Radakovich and Jim Agazzi were 
caught in a typical position as they ■ 

fell for the forty-second time while at- i % 
tempting to climb a hill. 



Sunday morning dawn- 
ed brightly, but much too 
early for most of the tired 
and sore junior collegians. 
Somehow we all managed to 
limp out of the motel to the 
bus which again delivered us 
at the bottom of Pine Moun- 
tain. Although many muscles were strained and 
bruised, we all were veterans now and bravely headed 
for the rope tows or chair lifts which carried us to the 
top of the mountain. 

The time finally came when we had to say fare- 
well to Pine Mountain and start the journey back to 
Joliet. The group that dragged on the bus wasn't the 
same as the group that had left; this group was tired 
and sore, but very happy in the knowledge that the 
memory of skiing on Pine Mountain and the closer 
friendships that were formed would last through the 
years. 




After buckling on her skis outside the Chalet, Pat Ward 
bravely prepares to approach the rope tow and ascend the 
mountain. 




JoAnn Ulrick, Nat Radakovich, and Jan Zimmerman are 
inside the ski lodge adjusting their equipment before challeng- 
ing Pine Mountain.

trying to decide which one he will conquer next. 




3 ONE-ACTS 









or* ***^ 




Mr. Mallary congratulates Jeanne Williams, 
student director of "The Terrible Meek," which 
was one of the three one-act plays presented by 
the JC Players. Mary Lou Fletcher and Annette 
DiLorenzo look on. 



The JC Players, with the able assistance of Mr. 
Robert Mallary, presented their annual Three One- 
Act plays, again this year. The student directors and 
the plays chosen were as follows: Jeanne Williams 
directing the "Terrible Meek;" Carol Clark directing 
"Overtones;" and James Padley directing "The Fish- 
erman." Tryouts were held and talent was canvassed 
from the whole student body. 

Competition for parts was keen and after much 
discussion and thought the casts were selected for the 
plays and all settled down to a strict routine of re- 
hearsals. The weeks leading up to opening night were 
filled with much hard work, but finally the nervous 
actors took their places and the curtain went up. As 
usual there was no need to worry, for again the JC 
Players scored another hit with three memorable 
performances. Thus another activity took its place in 
the annals of JJC dramatic history. 




One of the many hilarious scenes from "Overtones," directed by 
Carol Clark. Here the haughty innerselves of Sharon Rumchak 
and Barb Dunn, played by Janet Briese and Karen Boland, have 
an argument over a handsome man.

Working under a new plan of organization 
and using last year's rating as a guide, the SH7££D 
staff has collected material for another yearbook. 

It is hoped that this annual has given you 
many pleasant thoughts about your stay at JJC 
during 1959 and will continue to bring these mem- 
ories to you throughout your journeys in later 
life. 

Staff members who made invaluable contri- 
butions were: Bill Caisley, Mary Dow, Barb Dunn, 
Les Goldstein, Dave Imig, Jeanne Lambert, Carol 
Rackham, Judy Regis, Joan Shepley, Alan Vail, 
Bob Van Dyke, and Janet Zimmerman. 



Les Goldstein assisted Pat Ward, staff 
photographer, in taking some of the 
pictures for the yearbook.
