mm S eW ° v Higf, 3304 Parkside Avenue East Gary (Lake Station) Indiana 46405 Volume XXXVI ED SONIP tdMKlK PBmHGBR! JU .i lllOif i The school year started a day late for us at the High School. Arrangement of the electrical facilities for the new building was the reason for the delay. Excited voices could be heard throughout the halls as students changed classes and exchanged comments about the new teachers. Joining the staff were Mrs. Moylan (Choir ), Mrs. Mandon (Government and Econ.), and the new assistant principal, Mr. Steven Fritz. The lunch hour was lengthened to 20 minutes, and this gave students 55 minutes to eat. As the bells rang, a hoard of students could be seen dashing to their cars heading for McDonalds and Burger Kinq. Those who were less fortunate either ate here for the hoag ies, hamburqers and such, or walked the block or so to Armans or Burger Chef. It was a surprise to all when the E. G. ( Lake Station) Police, as well as Mr. Fritz, issued some 40 tickets for illegal parkinq or parking without a sticker. There was a big hassle over this, but after a few tickets, one caught on. Another problem experienced for the first few weeks of school was the lack of classroom seats. The unfinished portables created many class schedule disturbances. Many teachers had to move from room to room each hour. It was common for students to find themselves in the wrong, overcrowded classroom. With the portables finally ready, classes settled down to the routine of it all. Then there was the problem with lockers. As usual, you could walk down the halls and find that many were open, resulting in stolen books for some. Some lockers were shared by as many as three students while some students had two lockers for their personal use. The school spirit of the students was lacking for the first few months of school. Only three pep sessions were held with the senior class winning the Spirit Trophy two of the three times. The class shared the honor with the juniors one time. Many felt that another class should have received the Trophy during the Nov. 23 pep session, which was for the first home B-ball game. Students were also disappointed over the revised attendance procedures. If a student received three un- excused tardies or absences during a nine-week per iod, the grade was dropped by three percent. And then there were those plastic hall passes. The attitude of many students was hardened. There was some bitterness over the new procedures. Besides student handbook, the administration introduced a booklet concerning procedures for suspension and such. Many students seemed less eager to attend school. Perhaps the new building signaled that we were in for some changes. 4 EVENTS OF THE YEAR Many events that took place here at Edison were accepted by the student with enthusiasm. The Navy Band performed for the school and the really enjoyed their music. Homecoming " 76 " came and went like the previous years. The thrill of floats, parade, the football game, and the big dance brought friends together. The Student Council and DECA sponsored a Christmas convocation that proved to be funny. Yet helpful, because the money and canned goods the students donated were given to needy families for Christmas. The Sweetheart proved to be very successful, ' the theme " A Time For Us " was appropriate for the 78 couples who attended. Construction of the new school moved along very quickly, giving next year ' s seniors a new school. And the last dance of the year, Prom, passed by quickly. The Seniors realized that this va s the last dance of the year. " Over The Rainbow " was the theme and 75 couples attended. The post-prom was held in Woodland Park Hall in Portage. Graduation led the Seniors on their way to their future. Building project What a year for all; changes to come The new Senior High section is now in its final stages of development if not already finished. After five years of planning and three years of consid- eration by the Board, the school was dated May, 1976 and is expected to be completed by the start of this school year. The 5.12 million dollar building is under contract by a variety of firms. Along with the new structure, there is a new gymnasium, better equipped science classrooms, instructional areas for English, math, history and business, as well as, a new library and food service area. The school is designed for a close campus arrangement. There will be air conditioning in both school sections. The Athletic Department will have a new football field, track, baseball field, and practice fields. Tennis courts and a handball court are also being provided. The bleachers at the field will seat some 2,500. The new facility is being referred to as " a school within a school. " 1.

Mrs. Garber-A special dedication to a devoted Eagle fan Mrs. Garber has been the maker of our school ' s class flags for many years. She used to make the flags for all area schools, but now it ' s just Edison. Her husband ' s business is the Garber Lettering on Clay Street. Mrs. Garber has been regularly doing this work since she was 16 years old. " I just decided to continue on after marriage ' she commented. They do anything from numbering to class flags. Depending on the size of a flag, it could take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours to make and prices could range as much as $150. Lettering for all the area school include: Lake Station, Hobart, River Forest, West Central, Kankakee Valley, and Portage among others. The company also does a lot of its business through local sporting goods stores. Mrs. Garber stated, " I like doing work through the schools; it is very rewarding since all of our children are grown. We always try to do whatever we can for them. " Mr. Garber is now retired. " Now he ' s the Big Boss of our operation, kind of a janitor, secretary, bookkeeper, treasurer all rolled into one, " said Mrs. Garber. 1.

Everyone was glad to see this tradition continued and there was much excitement over who would be crowned queen. Three Senior girls competed for the title and a representative from each class made up the court. A few days before the Dance the guys selected the candidates from their classes; the day before the Dance the whole student body voted for the Queen out of the three Seniors. At the Dance Wendy Harmon was Sweetheart Queen of 1977. The dance ' s theme this year was " A Time for Us. " About seventy-four couples attended and the music was provided bv " B.M.

We, as Seniors hold many memories of this school, teachers, and friends. But even more, we are looking back to when we first came to Edison. As Freshmen we were shy and insecure. Our class flag, in our class colors of green and white, was hung in the gym for the next three years; we went to our very first football game and that was fun in itself! Home- coming came and as the " new " kids, we had to learn the hard work involved in making our float and decorating our hall. Our float, " Bury the Troopers, " received third place. All the Freshman girls went through the tradi- tional GAA initiation to become a member. We finally became Sophomores. We were no longer regard- ed as the " little freshman. " We were a little more aware of what was going on too. Some of our guys were on the Varsity Footba II team ; we ordered our class- rings and our float; " Dial V for Victory " received second place. Pep sessions were always a battle, and once we even stole the Spirit Trophy from the tough Juniors! Our junior year we finally were considered " Upperclassmen. " We hung around the big Seniors. Our float, " Elton Eagle " took first place After a two year absence. Powder Puff football came back and we took second. " An Evening in Paris " was the prom theme. After earning over $1000 by sell- ing stationery and having a car wash, and bake sale, we gave the Seniors their best prom ever! So here we are as Seniors. We ' ve become closer as a class because we realize that we may never see any of our friends again. Our last Homecoming came and we proved well by placing first on our hall project, " Jammin ' Jukebox " and a first on our hall decora- tions. Our float, " Eagle Spirit Reigns " came in third place. We had to have set a record by winning the spirit trophv five times, once sharing it with the Juniors. Last four years Frank Ennis and Tammy Cherry smile for the camera on that day at Spectacle Lake in Valpo. About 40 members of the class went swimming, fishing, and for fun. " On The Threshold Of A Dream " Graduation: June 5, 1977 Panoramic Pfcotograpbv Inc. Cedar Lake. Indiana 113 Class finds year difficult for fund raising The junior class was better organ- ized than ever before. The summer be- fore our junior year, we had three car washes and a paper drive, doing well on all. As a class we were especially proud of ourselves over the Homecoming ac- tivities. Won was first place spot in the float competition with the theme, " Come Ride with Us. " Also placed second in the Powder Puff football game. The class candy sale had ended up as a big disaster. We didn ' t make any money out of it at all. Also, the key chains the class sold had to be marked down from one dollar to twenty-five cents, because of the town ' s name change. So the key chains didn ' t turn out too well either. The Prom theme for this year is " Over the Rainbow, " and it was hoped the year-end event would be a success. 1.

We hoped our float and hall project would be winners. But our float titled " Cage the Cougars " placed second and our hall project which was titled " Eagles Are Flying High " took a third. In November we sponsored a dance which pushed us ahead financially. After Christmas vacation we all came back with the excitement of ordering our class rings. Disappointment came when we had a snow storm and the arrival of our order was delayed two weeks. They were delivered in February and there was much enthusiasm among our classmates. . . In the spring we planned on having a pop-bottle drive and selling yo-yos. We also planned to raise money with a car wash which really could turn out to be a " Big Splash " . Returning as juniors we hope to have ac- complished many money making projects to give us a good start on our prom. 1. Sophomore ' s homecoming float entitled " Cage the Cougars. " 2.

The class sold pins for Valen- tine ' s Day and also sponsored a car wash. Homecoming proved rather interest- ing but also discouraging. The class placed fourth in all events. Their float theme ' Pressing for a Victory " was inspiring. The class flag was ordered in the early spring. Class president Debbie Minton had this to say about the year, " This is our class, and we feel that as the years go by the class will always remember this year especially. " 1.

Advertisements Advertising is very much a part of the Edisonian; it shows businesses and schools are working together. The yearbook needs ads; the merchants need customers. The staff would like to express our appreciation to these fine merchants and patrons for their faith and confidence in our 148-page product. Their contin- ued support deserves our patronage in return. The design of the advertising is such to serve the student and the merchant by providing more photographs of the year. The staff felt that this is the best arrangement for those concerned. SQUARE DEAL FUEL OIL CO. INC.

The 1977 Edisonian attempts to accurately re- cord those events which effect you. The yearbook staff had many more problems this year than ever before. We did all the paste up work which was usually done by the Jostens yearbook Company. We typed the copy and took it over to the Hobart Gazette to be set. We had a con- tract with Indiana School Pictures but the company seemed to take for- ever to get any pictures back to us. It was already our second deadline and we hadn ' t sent anything to the yearbook company for production. But most of the staff kept on work- ing harder and harder each day, and others couldn ' t hack it and dropped out. Even though we had many arguments and difficulties we finally finished the book. I would like to thank the whole staff and Mr. Gray for all the hard work they did and hope there are no hard feelings. A special thanks goes to Nancy Hughes for doing all the extra work and lots of luck on next year ' s book as the editor. Nancy Daniel Editor josi=ns tM=RICdM y imooc CONRtfNy
