1961 EMERSONIAN EMERSON HIGH SCHOOL Gary , Indiana i As the years pass, our memories of the past be¬ come less vivid. These memories, once so important in our lives, have been shadowed by our more recent experiences. The teachers that have devoted their lives to making our future a more learned one have become only names in our memories. The education that they instilled upon us will be with us always even though we cannot remember the specifics. We can remember only silhouettes of our learning. Our thoughts move to the activities that we en¬ joyed so fully. These become mere recollections of the past. One of the most lasting impressions is the memory of the sports activities in which we partici¬ pated. We may be able to reminisce about the more important events that occurred during a football, basketball, or baseball game, or about a G.A.A. activity that we enjoyed so much. Many of the less important experiences have become very hazy as the years have ended. 2 The faces of our best friends and our acquaintances have become very faint with little detail left in them through the passing years. New friends have over¬ shadowed old ones that we haven’t seen in years. We recall our after school activities as a blur of pleasant experiences. We remember vaguely the social dances, the excitement and screaming at the games, the gang meeting in the hall, and the fun we had during the day. These are memories that shouldn’t fade from our minds, but through the years, they have been forgotten in our all-important school life. The 1961 Emersonian hopes that it can complete the missing details of the many silhouettes that are among our memories of Emerson.

We have a difficult time remem¬ bering the teachers that molded our lives during our four years of high school, for many year s have passed since we last had a class with them. These same teachers gave much of their time to help us with personal problems that faced us as young men and women. We express our gratitude to the faculty mem¬ bers who gave of their personal time to sponsor our class or school activity. We may he able to reminisce about the principals standing on the stage giving us a pep talk or some other school information at one of our school meet¬ ings. As we look back on some of these, we may have a real understanding of their concern for us as students and friends. We can now judge through our silhouettes of learn¬ ing the importance of the faculty and administration in making our school days enjoyable. We take this opportunity to say that we offer our sincere gratitude to the faculty and administration that so fully pre¬ pared us for the silhouettes ahead. Faculty Administration PRINCIPAL MARION B. ENGLAND “My sincerest congratulations to the students of Emerson, 1960-61. You have accepted the fine counsel of the faculty and your parents and the net result is a year of progress. It is the hope of everyone who worked on the annual that it has faithfully recorded the highlights of 1960-61. As the years slip into golden memories, take occasion to return to 1960-61 through the Emersonian.” Assistant Principal JOHN H. SMITH Mr. Smith takes care of attendance, programs, admits and the behavior of students. Assistant Principal H. E. SIMPSON This is Mr. Simpson’s first year as assistant principal. He has charge of school supplies and materials teachers need for school work. Office Staff Do you need an admit? Well, go to the office. Our efficient office staff not only makes out admits and sells game tickets, but listens pa¬ tiently to each of our “vital emergencies.” They are from left to right: Sylvia Francis, Dolores Carrabine, Minerva Short, Shirley Massey, Mau- rine Link. Sitting: Mary Cal¬ laway. Cafeteria Staff We are grateful to these ladies for their contribution to our school. It is their duty to prepare our daily lunches.

As we become active citizens in our town, we may have fond memories of the good times we had in school clubs and activities. The memories may be but mere silhouettes of the experiences we had while being an active member. The many new and old acquaintances that we have encountered as men and women helped us fill in the details of our silhouettes. We may meet an old schoolmate and say, “Yes, I remember him. He was president of the Student Council.” Or, we may meet someone new and say, “He sure reminds me of the guy that played the lead part in the Junior-Senior play.” In this fashion, we may be able to recover our lost impressions of many old times. Even if we can’t see a clear picture of the past, we now know the importance of our participation in such school functions. SITTING: Pat Farrell, Secretary, Ed Charbonneau, President, Joyce Dixon, Vice-President. STANDING: Richard Farrell, Senior, John Demakas, Freshman, Chris Rogers, Sophomore, Susan Charbonneau, Junior. The Executive Board of the Student Council serves as a liaison between the- student body and the principal and faculty. It is under the able sponsorship of Mrs. Greenwald. Among their many duties the Council participated in Youth Appreciation Weelc and several charity func¬ tions. Ed Charbonneau, president, was also chosen presi¬ dent of the City-Wide Student Council, thus becoming the first student from Emerson ever to hold that po¬ sition.

Social Committee The aim of the Social Committee is to keep our dances as organized and enjoyable as possible by playing the records and supervising all activity. Everyone takes a part of the Committee home with them for about two days after each dance—because that is how long it usually takes to wash the stamp off your hand. The sponsor Mr. DeLeuere and Chairman Michael Patrick successfully headed the Social Committee. M. Patrick, Chairman, J. Holman, T. Traina, S. Nash. LEFT TO RIGHT: T. Darkins, C. Dashe, W.

Senior Honor Society The Emerson chapter of the Senior Honor Society, formed in 1930, is the only active one in the city. Mem¬ bers are chosen by a faculty committee on the basis of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. This year the Society stressed its principle of service by selling paperback books. It was hoped that this project would encourage students to read and build up their own private library.

Ignelzi, J. Childress, P. Burns, B. Hennessy The Booster Committee sponsored the formation of a cheering block that lit¬ erally “shook the rafters” at all the sports events and pep sessions in a manner that no one has seen in many a year. Certainly it boosted school spirit and prestige to a new high. We congratulate the sponsor Mrs. Palmer, the new co¬ sponsor Miss Gilbert, and the chairman, Judy Beyers, for their fine efforts. P.

Representatives were sent to the State-Wide Latin Contest and the proceeds from their annual dance went to the Leukemia Foundation. Most famous of their activities was the Saturnalia. At this banquet members wore togas and actually had slaves serve them. All this provided the true atmosphere of Old Rome. FRONT ROW: M. Plesko, E. Henderson, P. Burns, K. Pittman, P. Hunt, P.

We may remember many of the specifics of the most exciting games of the year but the less-important happenings of the year’s athletic program may be very vague. The tackles, the blocked shots, and the home runs recall many exciting events of the year. These events were once so recent that we could picture them as they had happened. We can picture the many practice sessions, the pep sessions, the bus rides, and the fans who en¬ joyed the games so much. Time has taken many of these memo ries from us and has left us with only the memory of the most important athletic events. The competitive spirit gained and the silhouettes of the year’s athletic events, however, will continue to exist. 44 The Golden Tornado 1960 ROW ONE: B. Richardson, L. Gee, H. D elaGarza, F.

TORNADO TOTALS (4c) Football-o-Rama EHS Opp. 0 Lew Wallace 0 6 Roosevelt 20 0 Hobart 34 12 Tolleston 13 EHS Opp. 7 Lew Wallace 19 19 Froebel 6 13 Valparaiso 19 33 Horace Mann 27 46 The Golden Tornado of 1960 finished “with a good taste in their mouth,” as Coach Rolfe puts it, when they upended the state-ranked and highly favored Horace Mann Horsemen, 33-27. This thrilling upset not only spoiled Mann’s Homecoming but also de¬ prived them of the City Championship. The heroes of the game for Emerson were John Ryan and Jerome Dabney who scored two touchdowns each. Frank Lewis added a six-pointer to round out the victor’s scoring. Solid defensive play and sharp offensive blocking characterized the Tornado attack. Happy Emersonians whoop it up after their upset triumph over Horace Mann. The start of the season was not as happy, however, for the boys played a good game in Football-O-Rama only to tie a rough Lew Wallace team, 0-0. A very fast and shifty Roosevelt team ran off with a twenty to six victory in our first regular season game. The only thing that had any enlightening effect at all was the accurate passing of Lewis combined with the nifty running of Ryan resulting in the first of many touch¬ downs via the airways. The next obstacle in the path of the Tornado was a heavy and State-ranked Hobart eleven. The Emerson fellows could do no more than hold the score to a thirty-four to zero count. Tolleston Field was the sight of the next game and the heart-breaker of the year. Emerson’s passing attack was in high gear as Templin and Lewis hit Patrick and Ryan, respectively, for the two Tornado tallies. But despite all efforts of a late comeback the score ended with EHS on the short end of a 13-12 score. Then came Emerson’s Homecoming and our arch¬ foes from across town, Lew Wallace, were our oppo¬ nents. In a steady, cold drizzle the Hornets were not to be denied and went away with a nineteen to seven victory. The only score for us was made by Ryan. The following week we again had to play a State- ranked team in the form of Hammond High. The boys did better than expected but still couldn’t muster enough to knock off their rivals. The final was 27-6, with Holman being the only person to cross the last yardstripe for the Tornado. The by now hungry East-siders, with a 0-5 record, met with Froebel, their oldest rival. This was the Golden Tornado’s night as John Ryan again crashed the scoring column this time with two touchdowns which, coupled with Lewis’ TD, proved too much for the Devils. Emerson had its first victory of the season with a 19-6 score. Following their big victory the boys almost turned the tables on a favored Valparaiso team. Dabney electrified the spectators with a brilliant dash of sev¬ enty-six yards, behind marvelous blocking, for his first touchdown of the season. Ryan boosted his TD total to five when he accepted another aerial from Lewis, but nevertheless Valpo managed to eke out a 19-13 thriller. As a finale to a mediocre season, the boys gave the parting seniors, as well as the rest of the school, one they will remember for years to come. Thanks fellows for giving your best all year. And good-bye to the fine guys that will not be again the gold and gray: Jerome Dabney, Mike Roth, Dan McDonough, Don Sipos, Jim Grogan, Don Bayer, Jim Mikovich, Dave Bencie, Frank Lewis, and our great co-captains, Mike Patrick, and John Ryan. Congratulations to John Ryan and Frank Lewis for the honor of having been chosen to the All-City Foot¬ ball team for 1960.

Although the Emerson Harriers only placed sixth in the conference meet, they were second in the confer¬ ence round robin, with a 10-1 record, fifth in the Hobart Invitational, and fourth in the sectional meet. As you can see it was quite a successful season. Add¬ ing to the success of this season were several firsts. There were five boys who ran the two-mile course in less than 10:12; for the first time in history three boys, Richard Farrell, Robert McCants, and Ivan Za¬ netti, ran it in less than ten minutes, and when Richard Farrell toured the Hammond High course in 10-15 it constituted the only record of the season. Congratu¬ lations to Rich and also to the rest of the gang for making the 1960 season one to remember. Major “E” winners include Sophomore, Kurt Cool- man; Juniors, Robert McCants, Ivan Zanetti, Harry Flournoy; and the parting Seniors, John Wallace, Al¬ len Gast, and Rich Farrell.

Coach Connelly is anticipating a successful season again in 1961, and well he should, for returning this year are: Seniors; Don Bayer, who qualified in the State hurdles last year, and Richard Farrell, indoor confer¬ ence and city champ; Juniors, Bob McCants, the 880 and John Rodgers, 440 and mile, (Rodgers also holds the city record for Freshmen in the 440) and Jerome Dab¬ ney, the broad jump. Emerson has always been well represented down-state during the track season and this year undoubtedly will not be an exception.

Although this is only the second year wrestling has been a sport at Emerson, we turned in a respectable 3-3 dual meet record. Despite the fact that as a team we ended up fourth in the city, Mickey Sczerba, Garry Burkhart, and Paul Dawson placed in the city meet. Lettermen in Wrestling include: Seniors: Homer De¬ LaGarza and Mickey Sczerba; Juniors: Bob Smith, Rob¬ ert Zum, Paul Dawson, and Archie Pikramenos; Sopho¬ more: Garry Burkhart; and Freshman: Robert Wallace. All Emersonians wish the wrestling teams of the fu¬ ture the best of luck. We know the student body will back wrestling with as much enthusiasm as they do all sports. Freshmen FRONT ROW: J.

The “Fighting Norse” started the 1960-61 campaign on the right foot by defeating E. G. Edison by a 49-37 count. This turned out to be their last victory in 1960. A long drought of 12 straight losses followed this vic¬ tory. But then at Whiting Gym came the first of two upsets for the 1961 Emersonians. The Waiting Oflers were set back 45-31. The following week, after losing a tight one to Valpo, the Norsemen met and upset the favored Horsemen of Horace Mann, 61-60. This was by far the most exciting game of the season. The cry now around Emerson is, “Go get those guys (Horsemen) in Baseball.” Following this game and still on our cloud, we pro¬ ceeded to side-track a fast Merrillville team, 64-57. A fine team was turned out by Emerson this year despite the fact that their record was 4-17. During the year we lost five games by a total of 13 points! The lone parting Senior on this year’s squad is 5’8” “little” Ed Charbonneau. To him and the rest of the “never-say-die” Norsemen, Emerson wishes the best of luck in everything. “E” OPP 49 E. G.

Should we forget our G.A.A. As on through life we pass Should we forget the gold and grey Or love it to the last. We’ll not forget thee for the fun We’ve had right from the start We’ll love our school of Emerson And thee, with all our hearts. This song is taught to G.A.A. members and it is sung at special social events throughout the year. The girls Athletic Association is one of the major factors that contributes to the maturity of Emerson High School girls. It provides a well-rounded social, as well as recreational, program where girls learn sportsmanship, acquire a zest for activity, and develop a sincere friendship with classmates.

We can reminisce about the many things that happened during the school day and school night, and the days we were not in school. We all remember little incidents that happened to us but on the whole, we are able to hang on to only the more important ones. We can remember the laughs we had between classes and at lunch time. We recall the times spent at the neighborhood restaurant talking things over while having a snack. The many nights at the games and dances may be one of the highlights of our school life. These were the enjoyable times we spent socializ¬ ing and having fun with our schoolmates. The en¬ tertainment that the games and dances provided was a part of our schooling. Many of the memories of our school life will fade from our minds, but some will remain among our silhouettes of learning. 104 School Life “Class, I dare you to Translate it.” “You Cotta Get Up in the Morning” The Girls and “Old Glory” Ascending the Steps of Knowledge Honorary Cadet Colonel is Barbara Caldwell and candidates Joyce Dixon, Joyce Campbell, Bonnie Blum, and Karen Skubish.

What was that teacher’s name? What was it she used to say? I wonder if she looks the same. Ah! those were the “good ole days.” In twenty years or maybe ten, We’ll skim through this book, “I wish I could go back again— How funny I used to look!” A silhouette of learning. Is all that we can hold; In years we’ll all be yearning. For those golden days of old. —Joyce Campbell Norse Finish Second With ten returning lettermen of the 1961 roster, it looked as if Emerson was going to repeat its 1959 first place finish in the WNIHSC. We were well on our way with victories over Tolleston (5-4) and Froebel (7-5) when we ran into the sharpest Horace Mann team in years and bowed, 9-4. Lew Wallace trounced the Norse 9-5 and Valpo squeaked through a 2-1 decision in nine innings. As the second round began we found ourselves on the winning track as Piaseczny blanked the Blue Raiders 2-0. Froebel again ran amuck against Emerson and was defeated 9-6. The Horsemen again proved too much for us as they romped to a 9-5 victory and then marched to the championship. The East Side Gang did not throw in the towel, however; we proved that we were the second best team by de¬ feating Wallace and closed out the season with an easy 8-4 victory over Valpo. We ended the season with a second place finish and a record of 6 wins and 4 losses. The host of graduating Seniors who will be missed next year are: Joe Piaseczny, Bill Franklin, John Ryan, Jim Richmond, Homer De la Garza, Tom Corwin and Ed Charbonneau. 18 Baseball Varsity KNEELING: Mike Keogh, Larry Mullins, Don Wharton, Dan Kapica, Art Wright, Art Neely.

A Parisian backdrop and a flower cart as the main decorations carried through the French theme. Flower baskets served as centerpieces for the tables. Our music was played by Mike Golden’s Bacchantes. The Post Prom Party at Vogel’s in East Chicago followed. 122 Jock Kish and Connie Appel, Senior Class Vice-President, and Bill Franklin and Susan Charbon- neau, Junior Class President, lead the grand march. “Au Printemps” Pastel yellow programs were given as mementoes of the occasion. 123 And so we say good-by to the Seniors of 1961. This school year which saw . . . the election of a new President of the United States—John F. Kennedy . . . Mrs. Reyher’s thirty- sixth and final year as a teacher at EHS . . . the Juniors shine in G.A.A. competition . . . and the downfall of Horace Mann at the hands of the Norsemen . . . was theirs. Their troubles and triumphs have now become a part of Emerson history. They have carried on our traditions; they will carry on the name of “dear old Emerson.” TAYLOR PUBLISHING COMPANY arbooks Are Taylor-made "
