Profit. Of 66 Ok Cl 1 3 o n i a n Another school year has come and gone, all to quickly for many of us. During the months that were the school year of 1965-66, many new experiences unfolded for us all. The tense excitement of our first football game . . . the friendly competition in the classrooms ... the Junior-Senior Prom ... bac- calaureate . . . and finally graduation ... all have a special place in the memory of each one of us. The 1966 Edisonian staff wishes not only to portray the activities of this past year but also the feelings that were behind them. We hope that each one of you will find your own profile of ' 66 within these pages. Sincerely, Laura Chance Editor O aUe Of Contents Administration 9 Classes 23 Organizations 69 Sports 97 Activities Ill Advertising 133 2)eJ, i c a ti on A KOSMAS KAYES With great hopes for a future of progress at Edison, we, the Edisonian staff, dedicate the 1966 Edisonian to our new superintendent, Kosmos Kayes. The past year that Mr. Kayes has been East Gary’s superintendent has been a year filled with progress and innovation. Whether he is thinking of new ideas in his quiet moments, or putting them to use in his busy moments, Mr. Kayes has played a large part in making this, the school year of 1965-66, a very special one. Wo ni en ts w om en is 5 It has been said that a person ' s face is a mirror to what ' s going on behind it. So it is with the many different faces at E.H.S. The intense concentration of study, the sorrow of defeat, the joy of happy moments, and the pride of ac- complishment are all reflected on dif- ferent faces at different times. These joys, sorrows, accomplishments, and failures make up what 1966 at Edison has meant to each one of us. 7 £1 is om an Staff 8 Gloria Streetman Business Manager Ruth Hyden Circulation Manager 9 ddo a rd Of Education John Kuruzovich Assistant Superintendent Pete Chapas President Kosmos Kayes Superintendent 10 Carl Jacobs Treasurer Carl Polk Secretary Superintendent ' s Office Staff Lois Anderson, Clerk; Connie Courtney, Secretary Graduation Day is an important occasion in the lives of the members of the class of ' 66. It is a time when each of you will be looking to the future. Many of you will be entering college, while others will be planning to secure jobs imme- diately in industry, stores, offices, etc. Still others will be planning to fulfill their obligation to the military services of our country. I hope that during your four years at Edison Senior High you have acquired these five qualities: the ability and desire to make an honest living; an open- mindedness toward all new knowledge; a spirit of service toward society and your fellow-man; a clear sense of morality in all your activities; and a true feeling of your responsibility as an American citizen. To you departing seniors, I extend my best wishes for success and happiness. I shall watch with pleasure the progress you make in the years to come after leaving Edison Senior High School.

The Senior Band, which boasted over sixty members this year, began the school year by presenting pre-game and halftime shows for home football games. The next event of the year was a hayride and party held for band members and their dates. Another band party, sponsored by the Band Boosters, was held in the spring. W ith the advent of the second semester, the band left its crowded quarters in the old band room and moved into the new portable building at the north side of the main building. Each band member entered District Solo and Ensemble Contest, and three ensembles and the Dance Band competed in State Contest where they each received a second-place rating. Among the most important events of the year were band contest in April and the concerts held in the fall, winter, and spring of the year. 73 B..J Offt c e rs Joyce Campbell, Secretary; Warren Lewis, Vice- President; Belinda Golden, Treasurer; Larry Burton, President. ajorettei Brenda Faurote, Ruth Johnson, Esther Havrilesko, Sue Carter, Judy Ramsay.

The Council forms a link between the students and the faculty. This year the Student Council spon- sored such Homecoming festivities as the annual parade, half-time ceremonies, and the dance. They were also responsible for the distribution of student ' s individual pictures.

Salutatorian Miss Laura Chance 132 133 " Down the fair-chambered corridor of years, the quiet shutting, one by one, of doors. " Hermann Hagedorn The opening and closing of doors has always been a part of life. Every opened door has some flavor of the unknown, a feeling of moving into a new role, a new way of life. Every door closed shuts out the ways of the past. The most important door-closing for seniors was the door to E.H.S. that closed behind each after receiving his diploma. The door closing behind the graduate was also the open- ing of a door into the wider world. 134 135 ron a 9 e Michael Ademik Elmer D.
