THE 1953 EMERSONIAN EMERSON HIGH SCHOOL GARY, INDIANA Ready and Waiting The Queen and Her Court PRINCIPAL OFF £E l 1 Reason and calm judgment, the qualities specially- belonging to a leader. Tacitus ADMINISTRATION 11 Mr. George Brown, our principal, was promoted from assistant principal upon the retirement of Mr. Spaulding. Dr. Brown is efficiently and capably serving Emerson, and promoting its high standards througth his understanding and warm friendliness. We salute him. Mr. Clint Kelly, a new member of the administration, is assistant principal. He is doing a good job supervising the students and aiding those who need help. Mr. Kelly received his education at Illinois State Normal and the University of Illinois. Before coming to Emerson he was principal of the high school in Madison, Illinois. Miss Gulkowski, our nurse, has served Emerson for five years and takes care of all our medical needs. Mr. Sabotta, our counselor, guides the students, chaperons the Wednesday evening dances, and is willing to listen to all our troubles. Mrs. Fonville sees that the attendance at Emer¬ son remains constant and visits those who have prolonged absences.

Their duty is to g ' ve to each child of Gary the kind of education that will help him to become a good and useful citizen. The main job of the Board is to unite the schools of Gary into a single working unit. We owe much to the men who devote their time and energy to fulfill this purpose. Emerson feels especially close to the School Board because Mr. Badanish, the president, owns the Emerson Pharmacy. The School Board has attended educational meetings in the East to better their knowledge of the school day. The Board of Control is the governmental body of Emerson School. It consists of the Class Presi¬ dents and the three committees that are shown on the following page. Mr. Smith is the sponsor. This year the Board of Control sponsored the S.O.S. Humanity Fund Drive. The Social Committee doubled the Wednesday evening dances by able publicity. The Booster Committee sold programs for the games and made money for the school. 1ST ROW. LEFT TO RIGHT: S. Grimes. Y.

They have been chosen because of their abilities as scholars and leaders. The sponsors of these classes reflect perfectly the understanding and cooperation enjoyed between students and teachers.

At the beginning of the year the class elected their class officers, who were very instrumental in bringing about the suc¬ cess of their first year at Emerson. With already numerous accomplishments of their class it can readily be seen that they will play an important part in their remaining three years at Emerson. As a fitting climax in their most stirring career as fresh¬ men, the class sponsored the last informal dance of the year, The Freshman Frolic. REGISTER 207 FIRST ROW: M. Finnerty. M. Cantrill, R.

Sophomores Finished with the second year of their high school career are the members of the Sophomore Class. Carrying with the foundations thay had laid as freshmen, the Sophomores proved they were a go-getting class by the complete co-operation they received at their annual dance, " The Sophomore Hop. " Appropriate for the season, the dance was built around the theme " Winter Wonderland " with beautiful grey, blue and white decorations. In the many activities at school, Sophomores held a steady hand. Although they accomplished many deeds in their first two years we look forward to an even more vivacious career for the Sophomores in the ensuing years. REGISTER 310 FIRST ROW. LEFT TO RIGHT: C.

Hoping some day to be seniors the juniors qrew from little " Greenees " to upperclassmen. They experienced such high heights in high school as the Freshman Frolics, Sophomore Hop, Junior Play and the Prom. The class of " 54 " is well pre¬ pared to become responsible seniors. Those who have guided us are Bill Hamer, Freshman class president; Dean Gallinatti, Sopho¬ more class president; and Yvonne Spann, Junior class president. The main events during the Juniors ' year were the play, The Night of January 16th. There were no main characters but everybody had a good part. The Junior-Senior Prom was the last big event be¬ fore the year ended. The new upperclassmen realize their duties and are taking over well. They are working hand- in-hand with the seniors in order to attain a better unity. The Juniors, after a long waiting period, re¬ ceived their class rings. They are so proud of the rings which seem so new. Where would athletics be without the Juniors? Emerson should have a good team next year be¬ cause some of the important players were Juniors this year. REGISTER 208 FIRST ROW: B. Schultz. . F. Wellman. M. Yenco. G. Chunkwiler. M. Lazo. H. Short.

As freshmen we were starting our high school career. Some of us went out for the var¬ ious sports, while others became interested in other activities. As Sophomores, as a united and well organized class, we all started our climb upward. We were familiar with the school traditions and felt that we belonged to the school. Next year we were Juniors. What a feelina! Upper-classmen! Our class was very active, espec¬ ially in athletics. During the junior year, we had a lot to look forward to, mainly, our class play, " Twelfth Night, " Spice and Variety, " and the long awaited Prom. Remember? Our Senior year! Our championship football team games, dances, meetings, Mr. Flinn ' s classes, and civics and economics, are things we shall never forget. Now we are leaving, a little sad perhaps, for we will all miss our gang, our school, and our old friends. With us there will always be, however, the memories of the good times we had at Emerson.

FRESHMAN FOOTBALL FRESHMAN FOOTBALL SCHEDULE The Junior Tornado opened their season against Lew Wallace, with Joe Dishman scoring three TD ' s and George Toneff making the extra point. They walloped the Hornets 19-0 and finished first in the city losing only to Gary Roosevelt with the score 12-7. Their biggest thrill came in beating Froebel twice. The final record, with 7 victories and one loss, gave them an .875 average. Coach Klug can well be satisfied with this year ' s team and Coach Rolfe has an excellent lookout for a coming Varsity team. Lew Wallace Tolleston Roosevelt Froebel Horace Mann E. C.

Varsity Football The Golden Tornado of Emerson started the 1952 season with a veteran team that possessed experi¬ ence, speed and deDth. The first game was with Gary Tolleston, September 12 and the Golden Tornado emerged victorious 14-6. Gene O ' Connell and Clif¬ ford Flynn scored the two T.D. ' s with A1 Karras con¬ verting both points after touchdowns. The following week Gary Lew Wallace scored one of the biggest upsets in the state as they pushed across a touchdown in the last minute of play to nudge Emerson 14-12. Joe Molnar, half-back, and Steve Glusac, end, scored the T.D. ' s. The Tornado gridiron machine began to roll in the next game as it held Gary Roosevelt to minus eight yards and went on to win a resounding victory 15-7. Hammond Clark was our next victim as we whitewashed them 27-0. Gene O ' Connell scored twice on two spectacular runs and Steve " Glue- fingers " Glusac caught two passes for T.D. ' s. The next game was an easy win for Emerson as they beat Gary Froebel by 27-0. East Chicago Washington, the second place team in Ind’ana, succumbed to the bruising power of the Golden Tornado 20-0. The Horace Mann game turned out to be a fitting finale for the Emerson football season as we romped to a 39-12 victory. The season ' s record of 6 wins and 1 loss was a proud one. We won the City Championship and became the N.I.H.S.C. Co-Champs besides sharing mythical State Championship honors with E. C. Washington, Richmond and Indianapolis Cathedral. WE .

Coach Klug and his seven returning lettermen started their season with practice early in December. On the fifth of the month we played our first game and beat E. C. Roosevelt 66 to 56. The fighting Norsemen, a conversion of our Golden Tornado football team, showed great improvement as they went through the basketball season and came out with a 11-10 record; tieing for fourth place in the N.I.H.S.C. One of their biggest thrills came in the Holiday Tournament when we defeated Froebel ' s unbeaten team 47 to 42. As our records shows, we came out on top with an average of 540. Coach was greatly satisfied with his first five as well as the fellows on the bench who proved tremendously dependable and came through when they were needed. In the Sectionals meeting E. G. Edison we defeated them by a score of 72 to 53. In the second game the Norse met a small but determined Horace Mann team and after a very good battle the Norsemen finally subdued 55 to 50. SCHOOL E.

Playing on certain nights with the varsity and on Saturdays they well established the name of Emerson. They ended their fine season in a game against E. C. Washington.
