The E D I S O N I A N for 1959 and 1960 of Edison Senior High School East Gary Indiana Published by the staff as an everlasting memory of our high school days Dedication We, the staff, wish to dedicate our 1960 Edisonian to you, Mr. Whitby, for your example of leadership, companionship, and guidance that you have given us during the past four years as our teacher. Your splendid personality and your sincerity in all that you do will prove to be an inspiration to this graduating class as well as a very pleasant memory. 2 Foreword Many years after the Class of 1960 has departed from these halls, there will come a time when each one will be reminiscing— remembering the days filled with laughter, happiness, and fun shared together! The staff has endeavored to record those events which meant so much to the students in the hopes that this book will be your " Moments to Remember.

The class was organized under the leadership of James Spanopoulos, president; James Kitchell, vice-president; Juanita Johnson, secretary; Martha Babarik, treasurer. Finally advanced to the position of upperclassmen, their junior year was filled with many happy moments and exciting events including the return of the junior class play, class rings, and the most wonderful event of the year, the Prom. The officers for the year were William Dopp, president; Mary Pirjas, vice-president; Juanita Mattingly, secretary; Georgia Rogers, treasurer. The fall of 1959, they were SENIORS and the most important year of their high school life had arrived. This was their final and busiest year, and class officers were elected at the beginning of the year. Although the Hard Times Dance was held on October 23, the annual Powder Puff Game was postponed a number of times due to the rainy weather but was finally held on November 9. Besides their class play, they sponsored a Post Prom Party which was the first to be held at Edison; then with an air of festivity came the distribution of programs, name cards, baccalaureate, and graduation. Looking forward to the future, the Class of 1960 left the halls of Edison Senior High. 1 6 Seniors CARROLL ALLISON NED ANDERSON Student Council, F.T.A.

Hartley, FRONT ROW: Lane Robertson, William Poe, Basketball Reserves The reserve basketball team finished the 1959-1960 season with an 8 won - 8 lost record. This was a very successful season considering the lack of experience on the team. Most of the members of the team had not competed in basketball during their junior high grades. Coach Hartley was well satisfied with their steady, rapid improvement. Their team field goal average for the year was .362 and their free throw average was .586 — both very good reserve averages.

Student Council With a membership of twenty-five members, the same as last year, the Student Council sponsored several projects, one of which was the annual Homecoming Dance after the Calumet Township football game on October 9. Other projects were helping in the supervision of the lunchrooms, lockers, monitors in the hall, and a newly organized Student Court formed under the revised constitution. Under the constitution of the Student Council, students were tried for violations contrary to the laws of the school. At the close of the school year, the officers were elected for the next school year. Barbara Czilli, Parliamen- tarian; Juanita Johnson, Secretary; Juanita Mattingly, Treasurer; Mr. Kuruzovich, Sponsor;James Coffey, Vice-President; Richard Bartos, President. Honor Society Through the efforts of the 1958-1959 Student Council, a National Honor Society was established in Edison Senior High School. This year, the organization was composed of twenty-six members, juniors and seniors, upon its establishment. Togain membership into the Honor Society students were graded upon four qualities, which were scholastic achievement, leadership, character, and service. All members were presented with pins and membership cards at the installation ceremony. Honor Society Seals were placed upon the diplomas of the senior members at graduation. Once a person was accepted as a member, he had to maintain his qualifications to remain a member, as anyone becoming lax in any of the required qualities could easily lose his membership.
