• saa - C ' diA-on Settiosi eMialt School SaU ottian 1957 £ad£ Qan.u r 9 tJUa ta 9 oductio+t 1 he Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors began their first day of the morning shift of school in the Edison Junior High School Building on Septem- ber 4, 1956, at 7:00 P.M. Because of the delay in completing our new senior high school building, the students as well as the teachers had to begin their school day at an early hour many more mornings than had been anticipated. With enthusiasm and pride we finally entered our new building on that eventful morning of November 27, following Open House, which was held on Sunday, November 25, and another day of vacation. Our first full day of school was on November 28 because part of the chairs did not arrive for school on Monday. In order that this unusual year will be remembered forever, we the staff, have tried our best to summarize and record the important activities, the fun, and the work we had, and the memories of our faculty and classmates in this, “The 1957 Edisonian.” Our Morning Shift in Edison Junior High School Building 2 The 19 5 7 Edisonian FRONT ENTRANCE SOUTH ENTRANCE N REAR VIEW The 1957 Edisonian COACH STEFAN GAZA We, the staff, wish to dedicate this, our 1957 Edisonian to our basketball coach, Stefan Gaza, and our football coach Steve Georgakis, in order to show our appreciation for the many hours of work they have spent in instructing and coach- ing our school athletes on to victory. be icatio+t Your coaching and friendly in- struction will always be remembered by every student of Edison Senior High School.

Vice- president; Carol Maurer, Secretary. SENIORS On September 4, 1953, we, the members of the Class of 1957, entered the halls of Edison as freshmen. We chose as our first leaders: Lawrence Petruzelli. president; Verle Jones, vice-president; Judith Keyak, secretary; and Robert Muraco, treasurer. We proved that we could mix fun with work by holding a dance, the Turkey Hop, and winning the Freshman Basketball T rophy. Time moved on and we were sophomores. We were now accustomed to high school life, and we settled down to work. Our class officers were: presi- dent, Bernard Halaschak: vice-president, William Smith: secretary, Mary Muldoon; and treasurer, Shirley Anne Walker. Our class dance proved to be a real success. Finally, we were upper classmen: we were juniors. It was an exciting year — choosing our class rings, the girls ' powder puff football game, the win- ning of the Holiday Basketball Tournament, the setting of two new track records, and the Junior-Senior Prom. Our junior class officials were: president, Ray Boylan; vice-president, Jacqueline Pocialik: secretary, Phyllis Maurer; and treasurer, Angela Glorioso. Our most important year had arrived as we were seniors at last. We moved into our new senior high school building and. also, tied for the football championship in the Calumet Conference for the first time in the history of the school. The officers who led our class were: William Smith, president; George Glick, vice-president; Carol Maurer, secretary; and Penelope Kettering, treasurer. On May 9, the junior class held a Prom in our honor at the Marquette Park Pavilion. Senior pictures, award jackets and sweaters, name cards, and commencement announcements heralded the arrival of graduation day. Al- though we were happy to be graduating, we were sorry to leave our classmates, teachers, friends, activities, and school. On May 26, we donned our caps and gowns for Baccalaureate. Thus, we brought to an end our four wonderful high school years and began a new era in our lives. On May 28, we, the members of the Class of 1957, were graduated. 12 The 1957 Edisoniart SENIORS John L. Adams Pep Club. Carole Ahern Sunshine Society. Homemakers, G. A. A.. Pep Club.

SENIOR STUDENT COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVES Joyce Follow and Bernard Halasrhak The 1957 Edisonian 23 JUNIOR OFFICERS Daniel Hardt, Vice-President; Francis Chester, President; Eva Cruikshank, Secretary: Ivan Cole, Treasurer. JUNIORS " Upper classmen at last” was the thought running through the mind of every junior the first day of school on September 4, 1956. With this proud feeling the juniors started a year they will always remember. They began the year by electing their class officers and Student Council representa- tives. Soon afterwards, the juniors met to select the insignia of their class ring. On November 17, the rings arrived amidst a flurry of chatter and excitement. The juniors held their class dance on November 30, following the Dyer Basketball game. As the second semester began, the juniors had one thought in mind — the Prom. They held it in honor of the seniors at Marquette Park Pavilion on May 9. It was an exciting year. Then, as the year drew to a close, they were looking forward to being seniors and making their last year even more successful than their junior year. 24 The 1957 F.disonian Juniors Bart Ahern Mary Ann Bellar Russell Berg Larry Blair Rosemary Bottila Jean Boutwell Betty Boznak James Bradford William Breitsprecher Gene Brock Ursula Burchardt Patsy Burton Francis Chester Eugene Chicos Lee Clapp James Clark Ivan Cole LaVon Comstock Emil Conde Len Conway David Cotter Charles Cox Eva Cruikshank Barbara Davis Lou Denney Joseph Dreyovich Earl Eddy Shirley Ellis Janis Felton Sharon Forney Charles Franklin Rudolph Fusko Happy Gest Carol Glancy Janet Grusak The 1957 Edisonian 23 Juniors Charles Gumm Leonard Halaschak James Hamilton Daniel Hardt Janice Harrison Michael Havrilla Ray Hicks Barbara Higgins Phyllis Jahns Wayne Jakich Joan Jenkins Paul Johnson Thomas Johnson Howard Jones Hiram Kaiser Kathleen Kulavik Roland Maneno Antoinette Mayoch Donald McClaran James McDaniel John Miller Arveta Miskimins David Mize Larry Mockaitis Beverly Moore Roy Moore William Muldoon Richard Mumaw Virginia Newman Gail Parkhurst Russell Pcnzato Elizabeth Poe Arnetta Rafferty Linda Sue Robertson Joseph Rossi 26 The 1957 Edisonian Juniors Darlene Saddler Peter Sarkotich Nancy Schavey Harold Schmelzer Betty Series Truman Shelton Karen Silverthorn Brenda Statum Ethel Stavrakis Sandra Stetler John Stonehouse Charlene Strong Anthony Tamalunas Joan Vickrey Charles Watts Joyce Webdell Faith Wells Judith Wesley Fred Williamson William Winegar Thelma Wineinger Patricia Zajac Jerry Zinkovich Larry Zinkovich JUNIOR STUDENT COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVES Barbara Davis and Joseph Dreyovlcli The 1957 Edisonian 27 SOPHOMORE OFFICERS Joann Meister, Treasurer; Floyd Kettering, Vice-President; Jeffrey Lewis, President; Lillian Sherowsky, Secretary.

This year, with the building of the new high school building, the high school was divided into two divisions: the senior high school, consisting of seniors, juniors, and sophomores: and the junior high school, including the freshmen as well as the eighth grade and seventh grade. Thus, the grade schools included the first six grades. 32 The 1957 Edisonian ACTIVITIES The 1957 Edisonian 33 Officers and Sponsors Top row — Mr. Gaza. Sponsor; Mr. Roos, Sponsor.

During the year, the girls had the privilege of attend- SOCIETY ing the district and state conventions. The final events of the year were the annual Sun- shine breakfast and dance.

Along with the Athletic Booster Club, the Club sponsored the annual football banquet which was held at Co-Conut Grove. Besides sponsoring the faculty-alumni and faculty- senior basketball games and two successful dances, the E-Men’s Club sponsored the an- nual trip of the football team to a college game, the basketball and track teams to the state finals in Indianapolis, and the baseball team to a major league baseball game. The members of the club are major letter winners of at least one of the major sports — football, basketball, track, and baseball. Top row — Gilbert Hamilton. David Mize. Gene Brock. Richard Chontos.

E D I SO Following the first week of school on the half-day schedule, it was quite obvious that the Edisonian Staff would have many added difficulties in preparing the 1957 Edisonian for the printers. Without the guidance and hard work of our sponsor, Miss Hartley, and the assistance of the faculty and the admini- N I A N stration, this yearbook would not have been a success. Our heartfelt thanks, also, go out to Mr. Lee Coner of the Sterling-Goner Studio, our photographer, and our advertisers, who have helped to make this book possible.

YEARBOOK HISTORY The seventeenth edition of the Edison- ian, our 1957 Edisonian, was sponsored by Miss Hazel Hartley, who has com- pleted her thirteenth year as sponsor. The yearbook was first published as a mimeographed book in 1941 under the sponsorship of Hilda Eshelman Chapman. During the first four years under the spon- sorship of Miss Eshelman, Miss Hartley supervised the stencil cutting and mimeo- graphing. The first five editions were mimeographed, the sixth was oft -set copy, and the rest have been printed.

C. Battle The Eagles opened the season with a 21-6 victory over Merrillville in a conference bat- tle. Merrillville jumped to an early lead on a 3-yard pass. The Smith brothers, com- bined with excellent blocking in the line, scored as Bill plunged over on a 2-yard quarterback sneak behind the fine blocking of Barney and Bill Halaschak and Ron Raf- ferty. A 3-yard slant off tackle by Bob Mu- raco gave East Gary a 1 3-6 lead. John Smith picked up the extra point for a 14-6 lead. John Smith carried the mail to pay dirt only moments later to give Edison a 20-6 lead; also, he picked up the P.A.T. to make the final 21-6. September 14: Lriflitli — C. C. Edison moved to the top in the Calumet Conference with a 18-0 shutout victory over the Panthers of Griffith. Quarterback Bill Smith scored Edison ' s first touchdown in the opening quarter on a 2-yard plunge. Midway through the second period, half- back Rich Chontos bulldozed his way to pay 60 The 1957 Edisonian FOOTBALL (Continued ) dirt on a 3-yard plunge. Speedy halfback Bob Muraco crossed the double stripes from 4 yards out to make Edison ' s final score, 1 8-0. September 21: Vi irt — (1, C. Buttle The Troopers of Wirt hammered out a 12-7 victory over the Eagles on the Miller Gridiron and had complete control of the game until Bob Muraco uncorked a very fine 98-yard run late in the fourth quarter for Edison’s lone score. September 28: North Judson During Edison’s surprising victory over North Judson, halfback Bob Muraco checked for three touchdowns — two in the opening quarter on a 55-yard punt return and a 55- yard gallop and another in the next period on a 10-yard blast. Richard Chontos ac- counted for another pair of touchdowns, scoring on runs of 43 and 1 5 yards in the first and second quarters. Rich Lambert went for a 50-yard tally in the third frame. Chon- tos succeeded in five of seven placements. October 5: Dyer — C. C. Battle Held scoreless in the first half, the Eagles stayed “alive” in the conference, downing the Indians of Dyer 20-6. Francis Chester ignited the Eagles’ offense in the third quarter with a yard plunge after his squad had driven from its 24-yard line. Richard Chontos kicked the placement. After a recovery on a fumble, Bob Muraco blasted over from 5 yards out for Edison’s second score. Bar- ney Halaschak picked up a fumbled pass and rambled 34 yards for the final touchdown. October 12: Edison of Gary — G. C. Battle East Gary took the lead in the conference by defeating Edison of Gary 20-6. Jumping to a quick lead, the Eagles recovered a fumble on the fourth play from scrimmage and struck quickly three plays later on a fifty-two-yard pass play. Chontos hauled in the pass for the touchdown. His try for the P.A.T. was good and gave East Gary a 7-0 lead. Francis Chester made a beautiful 28-yard run in the final period as well as a second touchdown on a 5-yard plunge. October 18: Calumet Township The Eagles disposed of Calumet Town- ship 32-0, scoring three times in the opening period and one in the second and third frames for the lopsided score. Bob Muraco scored the first two touchdowns — one run of 65 yards and two yards for the next. Francis Chester plunged two yards for the second quarter tally, and Bill Smith hit one yard for the final score. The Eagles rolled up 271 yards. October 20: Howe Military Academy East Gary recorded her seventh victory of the season by defeating the Cadets of Howe Military Academy 26-0. The Eagles scored in every quarter except the first in which a clipping penalty nullified halfback Bob Mu- raco’s 85-yard sprint. Bob struck back with a 1 7-yard jaunt in the second period to cli- max a 70-yard drive. Francis Chester scored Edison’s second touchdown when he hit pay dirt on a 13-yard run — P.A.T. completed. Muraco scored his second touchdown when he went 1 1 yards; Chontos kicked the extra point. Chester made the final 6 points on a 27-yard sweep. October 24: Lowell — C. C. Lowell’s Red Devils pulled the biggest surprise in the conference race by upending the Eagles for a 13-0 victory. East Gary, who led the race with a 4-1 record, never got inside Lowell’s thirty-five. Lowell gained a total of 253 yards compared to Edison’s 55. November 2: Portage — C. C. Battle The Eagles grabbed a share of the con- ference title by edging a very stubborn Port- age team 7-6 in the final game of the year. See-sawing back and forth, the Eagles finally scored on a 15-yard play by Bill Smith: Chester ran the extra point. Portage scored her lone touchdown in the second period. Edison placed three men on the first team of the All-Conference Team for 1956, as The 1957 Edisonian 61 FOOTBALL Robert Muraco was chosen to fill the back position; Bernard Halaschak, center; and Ivan Cole, tackle.

BASKETBALL VARSITY The Eagles opened their 1956-57 basket- ball season successfully on November 17, as they defeated the Black Hawks of Westville 80-69. In their first conference game of the season on November 30, the Eagles broke their own record for the largest number of points scored in one game by scoring 97 points to defeat the Indians of Dyer, who scored 52 points. December 7, the Brickies of Hobart won their first hardwood contest in four starts by edging out the Eagles 71-68 on Edison’s hardwood. With superior height, shooting, and re- bounding throughout the game, the Blazers of Edison of Gary defeated the Eagles 83-48 on December 14. East Gary was outscored in every quarter except the second when she scored 15 points to her opponent’s 13. Tony Peffley scored 7 of the 15 points. Dropping through a torrid 30 points in the second quarter, East Gary’s basketeers lambasted Wirt of Gary 85-47 on December 1 8. Chontos led East Gary’s scoring with 28 points. Brock dumped in 20 points, and Muraco won the fancy of the crowd with his stellar defensive plav and drive-in lay-up and was the thorn in Wirt’s attack as he broke up the Trooper’s offense with steal after steal. January 1 1, the Panthers of Griffith dealt a 65-49 defeat to East Gary. Chontos and Brock led scoring honors with 22 and 18 points respectively. Starting with a past pace and continuing throughout the game on January 13, the Eagles defeated the Red Devils of Lowell 83- 66. Gene Brock took high scoring honors with 29 points, and Richard Chontos fol- lowed closely with 28 points. On January 18, Dyer scored her second victory over Edison 73-67. Edison held her only lead with less than four minutes to play, 59-58, but Dyer scored to stay ahead the rest of the game. Richard Chontos was high-point man with 30 points and was fol- lowed by Gene Brock with 10; Robert Mu- raco, 10; Richard Lambert, 7; William Glea- son, 6; and William Smith. 2. The Eagles showed the Pirates of Merrill- ville how to play ball on January 23. East Gary hit .485 from the field and was favored by 38 points by Chontos. Don Bartos, Mer- rillville ' s scoring ace who scored 40 points against Griffith, was held back by William Gleason, who really showed Bartos how Ed- ison played ball; also John Smith and Rich- ard Lambert helped Bill.

Richard Chon- tos placed first with 32 points, Gene Brock ranked second with 28 points, and Robert Muraco placed next with 22 points. William Gleason did an excellent job in rebounding with 16 rebounds, and William Smith was in next place. Richard Lambert, Paul An- derson, and John Smith played a fine game in guarding their shots. “Indians Scalp Eagles” was the cry as the final score of 77-57 was recorded at the Edi- son-Portage game on February 15. Gene Brock scored 1 6 points, while Robert Muraco and Richard Chontos tied for second place with 1 2 points. Blasting in 30 points in the second quarter for their last home game of the season, the Eagles registered their first victory over the Trojans of Chesterton, 90-65, in 7 years Gene Brock led the scoring with 29 points and was followed by Richard Chontos with 22: Robert Muraco, 16: William Gleason, 12: William Smith, 5: Richard Lambert, 2: Paul Anderson, 2: John Smith, 1; Bernard Halaschak. 1. In the first round of the Gary Sectionals on February 28, the Eagles lost with a final score of 57-101 to the Panthers of Roosevelt of Gary, who turned out to be the sectional champs. High scorer in the game was Rich- ard Chontos with 27 points, and Gene Brock placed second with 1 6 points. The score does not tell the complete story as the Eagles were hard-fighting warriors until the very end of the game. Richard Chontos was selected on the Cal- umet All-Conference Team, and Gene Brock and Robert Muraco received Honorable Mention. Season ' s Record Nov. 17 Westville ....

There has never been a greater need for the good citizen who is economically and socially competent. These phases of citizenship require a mastery of the " three R’s” as well as other fundamentals. The effective citizen must be informed on local, national, and world affairs and must contribute to an informed public opinion if our town is to continue to be effective in its local responsibilities and our nation is to continue to be effective in its share of responsibilities of national and world leadership. The public school has made it possible for the individual to develop his particular talents and interests. The school plays a vital role in the development of strong healthy people through instruction in nutrition, cleanliness, clothing, medical and dental care, safety, and community health problems. The qualified individual who successfully earns a livelihood receives his training in the class- room. In almost every phase of everyday living there is evidence of the effects of our public schools. As science and technology add to our knowledge and as the future unfolds, there is still more to be taught. All of these developments make one aware of the significant role of the public schools in the development of a strong community and nation. To achieve their maximum effectiveness and meet the challenges of continu- ing to build a stronger community and nation, the schools require more facili- ties, increased financial support, the best teachers, and continued support of the community. It is the duty of each taxpayer, parent, and citizen to make it his business to keep East Gary ' s local tax rate sufficiently high and to let the legislators know of his desire for adequate funds to be made available for the efficient operation of East Gary’s schools.
