1963 EMERSONIAN Emerson High School Gary , Indiana i The bugle plays an important part in the lives of Emersonians. WELCOME Within the Call of the Bugle Dunes of sand, ingots of steel, stacks of books, and friendly people were representative of Emerson School in 1962-63. As the first school in the city of the dunes, Emerson had much to offer. Among her many firsts were a legitimate stage in a high school audi¬ torium, an indoor swimming pool, and a corridor art gallery valued at $20,000. Emerson had academic and eye appeal. However, beauty and firsts could not be the sole substances for a school. It must have academic achievements, too. Emerson could boast of her chapter in the Na¬ tional Honor Society and of membership in the North Central Associations of Colleges and Secondary Schools. History, beauty, and academics were all a reflec¬ tion of the fourth factor, students. The students of 1962-63 were just like their predecessors in that they were victims of fads, fashions, and fun. When stu¬ dents first came to Emerson, a wonder to them was the playing of the bugle immediately before and after school. The Emersonian staff of 1962-63 lays out the red carpet. Welcome . . . “Within the Call of the Bugle.” Weekly pep sessions attract taffy apple-eating students. ACTIVITIES Within the Call of the Bugle The Latin Club Satemalia includes much before-hand preparation. From the beginning of their freshman year to the end of their senior year, Emersonians participated in weekly and annual events whether team sports or the Junior-Senior Prom. Individually, students prided themselves in victories, suffered over defeats, were chosen for G.A.A. basketball varsity, lost their voices at a football game, performed in the variety show at the annual P.T.A. Festival, were elected to Honor Society, received their class rings, cried at Commencement exercises, and eventually, received their diplomas. From sports activities and organiza¬ tion-sponsored dances to daily chats at the lockers and making up time before and after school, Emer¬ sonians were always on the go. Although all Emersonians had some things in common, there were special incidents worth remem¬ bering in each student’s life. Perhaps some will be remembered with the help of School Life . . . “Within the Call of the Bugle.” Awaiting the big moment of the coronation are the queen candidates and their escorts: seniors, Tom Gajda, Bridget Hen- nessy, Ricky Hansen, Suzanne Karan, Tom Wool, Antoinette Bodnar, Kurt Coolman, Johine Ignelzi, Jeff Davies, and Shirley Campbell. Emerson Royalty Reigns Happy and smiling over her title of the 1962-63 Homecoming Queen is senior Bridget Hennessy and her escort Tom Gajda. Gold and grey streamers, glittery crowns, and fresh flowers added to the already festive Homecoming ceremonies on Friday, September 25, during the half-time of the Tornado vs Hornet game. The five candidates selected by the entire student body were Antoinette Bod¬ nar, Shirley Campbell, Bridget Hennessy, Jo¬ hine Ignelzi, and Suzanne Karan. Each girl anxiously awaited the crowning and secretly dreamed of receiving the football signed by the team. Tension increased as the candidates were es¬ corted around Gilroy Field in convertibles. The 1963 Homecoming Queen was Bridget Hennessy and her escort was Tom Gajda. Other escorts were Kurt Coolman, Jeff Davies, Ricky Hansen, and Tom Wool. The entire court was honored at the Homecoming Dance in the girls’ gym following the game. 7 Emerson’s 1962 Football-O-Rama Queen Lynne Oros, right, and attendant, Johine Ignelzi. Emerson Queens Reign Throughout the Year P.T.A. President, Mrs. Jack Burns, presents Shirley Camp¬ bell, Miss Gold; and Gerry Elston, Mr. Gray; with their trophies. If seniors Johine Ignelzi and Suzanne Karan or juniors Kathy Fisher and Lynne Oros were seen go¬ ing in and out of stores, apartment buildings, and stopping people on the street in the summer of 1962, it was probably because they were trying to sell tickets to Gary’s annual Football-O-Rama. From these four candidates the Football-O-Rama Queen was selected on the basis of the girl who sold the most tickets. The climax came when, amid cheering crowds of Emersonians, junior Lynne Oros was crowned queen with Johine Ignelzi, senior, as run¬ ner-up. Also contributing to Emerson’s variety of queens were the Future Business Leaders of America. Out of sixteen candidates, this club annually elects a White Collar Queen with two attendants. Linda Levandoski, was chosen queen with Sandy Spence and Pat Stanislaw as attendants. Two seniors are honored every year with the title of Miss Gold and Mr. Gray. These two people repre¬ sent Emerson as typical Emersonians. Selected on the night of the P.T.A. Carnival were Shirley Camp¬ bell as Miss Gold and Gerry Elston as Mr. Gray. 8 Outstanding Students Receive Recognition Outstanding citizens are chosen from the Senior Class by the Student Council on the basis of student contributions for the good of the school. Recognized at the annual Youth Appreciation Week Program held at Memorial Auditorium were seniors Sandy Spence and Ricky Hansen. Boys participating in freshman, reserve, and var¬ sity football are recognized each year at the Foot¬ ball Awards Banquet. Co-captains for the coming year are elected by the senior players and announced at the banquet. During their junior year Elizabeth Henderson, Whitt Cruce, and Gerry Elston were chosen to be Emerson’s representatives to Hoosier Girls’ and Boys’ State. Held during the summer, the purpose of the conventions are to acquaint high school stu¬ dents with the primary principles of state govern¬ ment. High school students from all over Indiana were taught the fundamentals of government on city, state, and county levels. Attending the Football Awards Banquet are Mr. Marion B. England and Coach A. J. Rolfe. Outstanding citizens: Ricky Hansen and Sandy Spence. GIRLS’ AND BOYS’ STATE REPRESENTATIVES—1 to r: Gerry Elston, Elizabeth Henderson, and Whitt Cruce. The grand march at the G.A.A. Couple Dance highlights the evening. G.A.A. Couple Dance Spins Christmas Magic G.A.A. officers and their dates lead the grand march. Highlighting the Christmas season each year is the Girls’ Athletic Association’s Couple Dance. The semi-formal affair is a turn-about because of the all girl membership of the club. “Christ¬ mas Carousel” was the theme for this year as couples danced to the music of Allan Isley in the Crystal Ballroom of Hotel Gary. The dance really ushered in the Christmas season as the first big social event of the year. Arrangements for the dance were made by G.A.A. Social Chairman, Paula Sivertson. In late spring, the G.A.A. held its final social event of the year; the annual Awards Banquet. Although many different awards were given out at this time, the three outstanding ones were the Class Plaque, for class team sports; the Lazart Sportsmanship Award, for outstanding sports¬ manship throughout the year; and the Jane Reynolds Loving Cup, in honor of the founder of G.A.A., and given to the girl who has been outstanding in her four years of G.A.A. and represents the ideal G.A.A. member. 10 Girls Take an Active Part in Activities These senior girls find basketball a fast game. When it comes to sports and extracurricular acti¬ vities, one finds that boys are not the only ones in¬ terested. A stranger coming to Emerson finds that Emerson girls are just as active as the boys and they spend a great deal of time keeping pace with the boys. With each new year, the rules of girls’ sports change more and more to match those of the boys. This comes in handy particularly when the senior boys and girls match their skills in their annual ex¬ hibition basketball game. Parties were a specialty of girls at Emerson. Al¬ though these parties may not have come during the school day, they were always considered a vital part of school life, for every Emersonian attended at least one such party during the year. Making the best popcorn in town was also a specialty of Emerson girls. They displayed their “popping” talents at both Gilroy Stadium and Me¬ morial Auditorium. VARSITY CHEERLEADERS—1 to r: Charlice Cline; Bridget Hennessy; Johine Ignelzi, head; Pat Burns; and An¬ toinette Bodnar. Emerson Varsity and Reserve Cheerleaders Just as school spirit was an essential part of school life, so were the cheerleaders essential for good school spirit. Sponsored by the Booster Com¬ mittee and headed by senior Johine Ignelzi, the varsity cheerleaders did their best to make the crowd come alive and cheer. The pep sessions, held after school on game days, really pepped things up and put the cheering block in the right mood. Even be¬ fore school started, the cheerleaders were busy learn¬ ing new techniques and cheers. These new cheers made the games more interesting and exciting for everyone. Whether the basketball games were at Memorial Auditorium or at the other team’s gym, there were always Emersonians there to back the team. Many students gave up their nights out or even brought their dates along to the games so as not to miss a single, exciting game. This enthusiasm showed, with¬ out a doubt, that Emerson possessed tremendous school spirit, something no school should be without. Basketball games draw many excited fans. 12 Are Essential for Good School Spirit Excited Homecoming fans cheer their team onward. Those boys participating in varsity sports were not the only ones privileged enough to have cheer¬ leaders. The reserve cheerleaders did a commend¬ able job in getting the pre-game crowds to cheer for the reserve teams. Appearing at the pep sessions, they reminded people to come early to the game and back the reserves. Emphasizing the fact that the reserves would be Emerson’s future varsity team, the reserve cheerleaders helped draw larger crowds to the games with the promise of two exciting games, instead of one. Homecoming always drew large crowds of exu¬ berant fans, and it seems that no matter who the opponents were, Homecoming was always the most exciting game of the year. Emerson girls, wearing their gold mums, and Emerson boys, always shout¬ ing encouragement to the team, seemed to enjoy themselves regardless of the weather or the outcome of the game. The dance following also drew large crowds of both Emersonians and Emerson alumni. It served as a perfect ending to a perfect evening. RESERVE CHEERLEADERS—1 to r: Nancy King; Dawn Davies, head; Carol Ignelzi; and Mary Parnell. Familiar Haunts Frequented by Emersonians “M-m-m, good!” say hungry Emersonians at the Flamingo Lounge. During the 1962-63 school year, there were three places which attracted Emersonians during the week and on the week-ends. The Dunkenburger, located on Route 12-20, was the gathering place of students after the Chapel of the Dunes dances or Saturday night dates. Here, students stopped to exchange the latest news, meet friends from other schools, and enjoy the teen-age favorites—hamburgers and french fries. Another attraction to Emersonians was Polly’s, a local restaurant. Emersonians laughed and talked while listening to the latest record hits and drink¬ ing a Coke or Pepsi. This small, wood-paneled stu¬ dent haven housed students before school began, during lunch periods, and at the end of a tiring school day. On game nights, the Flamingo, a local pizza palace, was the gathering point for Emersonians celebrating a victory or mourning a defeat. Almost every Emersonian can remember table-hopping and enjoying pizzas or beef sandwiches with Seven-Ups or Cokes. 14 Typical Happenings Seen at Emerson “School days, school days, dear old Golden Rule days.” “What’s the center of attraction, girls?” “All right, where’s the dime you owe me for that taffy Alarm clocks awakened sleepy-eyed Emersonians to a new day of fun and learning at Emerson High School. Walking in groups of two’s and three’s, students carry folders with carefully written term papers, copies of Vergil’s Aeneid containing tattered vocab¬ ulary pages, and papers for government prepared at the Gary Public Library. Emersonians deposited their coats, books, and homework in their small, crammed lockers and met friends they had not seen or talked to since the previous day. The lockers are a popular meeting place of E.H.S. students during the school day. After a day full of tests, homework assignments, and classwork, weary E.H.S. scholars gathered in front, of the school auditorium to discuss the day’s events. Girls in gym clothes, boys in lettermen’s jackets, and students with regular school attire dis¬ cussed everything from the school’s newest “stead¬ ies” to student plans for the summer vacation. 15 “Library is open,” was a familiar sound to Emersonians. In the library, students prepared research papers for English, book reports for U. S. history, and did other reference work. Many talkative Emersonians can remember the warning “Shhh” coming from Mrs. Irma Plum, school librarian. In the study hall itself, E.H.S. students did homework, wrote letters, read either The Cov¬ ered Wagon, Julius Caesar, My Antonia, or Macbeth, or caught up on lost sleeping hours. Studies were interrupted by lunch bells which brought a welcome break to each tiring day. After lunch at home, in the cafeteria, at a local restaurant, or in the school gym, Emersonians gathered outside to await the start of afternoon classes. These Are Familiar Scenes to Emersonians The lunch hour—a break in the day’s studying—is welcomed by E.H.S. students. 16 E.H.S. Students Enjoy School Functions “Who needs American Bandstand?” says Lynn Oros to the delight of onlookers. Here are eight reasons why Arthur Murray may go bankrupt! . . and then Larry Gee said to Gerry Elston that . . At the school dances new rages in dancing such as the Popeye, the Scotch, the Pony, the Wobble, and the Wiggle Wobble were the fa¬ vorites among Emersonians. There were certain dances which had a special flair to them such as the Homecoming Dance, the Scum Dance with the dressed-up freshmen of the Girls’ Athletic Association and their sen¬ ior rushers, the Spanish Fiesta, the S.O.S. Hu¬ manity Drive Dance and the Christmas Basket Dance sponsored by the Student Council. The latter two are held annually to provide money or goods for charities. All school dances were under the supervision of the Social Committee sponsored by Mr. Law¬ rence DeLeurere. 17 “E” Day Honors Outstanding Emersonians “E” Day, the first annual assembly of its kind, was held on May 9, 1962, and consisted of two separate period meetings. The purpose of the assembly was threefold: (1) to reduce the number of recognition items on the program for Senior Class Day; (2) to recognize individuals and groups for commend¬ able service; (3) to note how many fine records had been made. Those mentioned included citations for excellence, con¬ sistently high and meritorious work or service and extra¬ ordinary performance. The Executive Board of the Student Council wished in no way to interfere with traditional award giving, banquets, and other recognition. In most cases these functions were those that had not been previously awarded. Awards and recogni¬ tion were given in the following departments and activities: Art Department, Thelma Bowden, Jesse Gonzales, Nan Gracin, Sybil Russell, Gail Stanford, Marie Velligan, and Evelyn Wofford; Commercial Department, Georgia Jablonski, Donna Lambie, Toula Poupolos, and Carolyn Ranney; Drama De¬ partment, Georgia Bisdaris, Rose Mary Clark, Elizabeth Henderson, Bridget He ' nnessy, Mike Hernandez, Pam Ken¬ neth, Tom Miranda, Diana Prentiss, Paula Sivertson, Bruce Cox, Joanne Easton, Kathy Hazimahalis, Delores Herr, Jack Locke, Larry Mullins, Linda Jablonski, Leonard Koldziej, Tony Medina, and Mickey Tesanovich; Homemaking De¬ partment, Mary Ann Jadrnak; Industrial Arts, Tom Brown, Jerome Dabney, and Ray Janiczek; Language Department, Cheryl Bloomingdale, Robert Bodnar, Patricia Bums, Patricia Christo, Juan Colon, Dawn Davies, Jeff Davies, Christine Festa, Esperanza de la Garza, Gerry Gondell, Nan Gracin, Juan Guzman, Elizabeth Henderson, Bridget Hennessy, Johine Ignelzi, Robert Johnson, George Kalin, Mike Keough, Ange- line Korfias, Nancy Kupschick, Hector Lopez, Rita McCon- nachie, Bridget Moore, Jo Amber Neal, Fred Pierce, Karen Pittman, Toula Poupolos, James Rubens, Sybil Russell, Shar¬ on Scroggins, Ralph Shaffer, Karen Skubish, Donna Samard- zija, Kendal Svengalis, Thomas Springman, Judith Teeguar- den, Ronald Vaughn, Jan Vician, Charlene Van Gorp, Terry Wolfrath, Marion Worth, Dorothy Woziak, Helen Young; Music, Don Baker, Wilbert Boyd, Stanley Brown, Linda Chalfant, Joyce Dixon, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Tom Forbes, Esperanza de la Garza, Fred Gresham, Larry Hackett, Linda Heilman, Mike Kazonis, Wayne Key, Jim Kupres, Nicki Pappas, Marie Plesko, Barbara Rainey, Henrietta Rajski, Yvonne Richards, George Stupar, Joyce Tolson, Don Wharton, Edwina White, Sam Wyatt, and Virginia Yancy; Photography, Thelma Bowden; Publications Department, Dale Robison and Paula Sivertson; R.O.T.C., Pvt.

Emersonians Lose a Faithful Friend MR. DONALD CONNERLY Thoughts of Mr. Donald Connerly bring heartwarming memories to the minds of Emerson students and faculty. He taught geometry, senior mathematics, and trigonometry at Emerson. Mr. Connerly was born in Greencastle, Indiana, and attended Greencastle High School. He was graduated from DePauw University with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Arts degree. In September, 1928, Mr. Connerly came to Emerson and stayed until June 3, 1943, when he was com¬ missioned a first lieutenant and taught math in the Army Air Corps. He returned to Emerson in 1945 and remained here until October 29, 1962, the date of his death. Mr. Connerly was head sponsor of the class of 1963 and, in this capacity, also served as a leader, a friend, and a devout Emersonian. Throughout his teaching career, Mr. Connerly maintained that the best way to teach a child was to let him know that a teacher is also his friend. His constant interest in people make his image one for which everyone should strive. “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” AUTHOR UNKNOWN 19 Within the Call of the Bugle With a ring of the school bell, a new day began, and with each consecutive hourly bell, students left one classroom with one group of faces and went on to their next class of new faces and fresh ideas. In their first year of high school, freshmen became accustomed to changing classes with other students. Accompanying the newness of high school were copies of The Yearling, biology books, and rulers and com¬ passes for Algebra I. Sophomores had their first taste of Shakespeare and, with inquisitive minds, they delved deep into the realms of plane geometry. Juniors who were not trying to break the language barrier struggled through the Civil War in the U. S. history class. Seniors not only learned the funda¬ mentals of U. S. government, but also read and evalu¬ ated many works of William Shakespeare. From general science and first year English to Physics and Advanced Literature and Composition, a wide variety of courses were offered at Emerson for the benefit of her students. Learn what Emer- sonians learned by reviewing Academics . . . “Within the Call of the Bugle.” The study of Algebra II is a challenge to many Emersonians.

Spelling, reading, out¬ lining, diagraming, and para¬ phrasing were all part of the Eng¬ lish program at E.H.S. In the first year English classes, freshmen reviewed and built a solid foundation on some of the basics of English. English I re¬ quired the reading of such novels as The Yearling, Treasure Island, and The Cohered Wagon. Sophomores memorized those unforgettable lines, “Friends, Ro¬ mans, countrymen, lend me your ears.” Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar was only a small par t of their intense study of the Elizabethan Drama. Students Obstain a Better Understanding Senior English students prepare for the upcoming College Board exams. 22 Mrs. Pierce helps Carla McDowell paraphrase a soliloquy from Macbeth. of English Through a Three-Year Study Tom Wool and Angie Ypsilantes are thinking wishfully as they admire one of the travel posters in Mrs. Pierce’s room. Juniors were introduced to the thought-provok¬ ing science of the Humanities with Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. A requisite for the comple¬ tion of English III was a 15,000 word research paper, which was to develop interest in a pros¬ pective career. Shakespeare’s plays, including Macbeth and Hamlet, composed the main plan of study for senior English. The selected few seniors were in¬ vited to take advanced literature and composition. A progressive study of literature was made by these students. Working with pantomimes, dramatic readings, and extemporary speeches in speech class gave students an opportunity to overcome their shy¬ ness in talking before a group. 23 Mysteries of Earth and Space Were Probed Biology students prepare for one of Miss Tinsman’s quizzes. Tony Poupoulos, David Simmons, and Mary Smith conduct an experiment to find the focal point of a lens. With the help of Emerson’s Science Department, students were able to acquire a proper background for further study. Bio-physics and physical science were the two basic science courses. Insects, animals, plants, and humans were a few of the subjects discussed in biology. Laboratory work through experiments with the elements of nature was done by those taking chem¬ istry. This year the members of the Science Club made individual projects such as bacteria cultures and solar oscillators. Such puzzling questions as How fast does sound travel? How can a camera take a picture? and What are cosmic rays? were answered by the students in physics class. A study of matter, energy, light, heat, sound, electricity, the energy of moving bodies, and atomic energy was accomplished by those who wished to receive a major in the science field. 24 Math Is Important in Everyday Living Jeff Davies and Steve Wetmore work on a complica ted trig identity. Because of the ever-growing need for scientists, mathematics plays an important part in education today. Students who wish to explore the realm of numbers and angles could have taken any of the many math courses offered at Emerson. General math, applied math, and senior math were the basic arithmetic courses. The more interested students took Algebra I. This course dealt mainly with learning how to solve prob¬ lems by using letters and various other symbols in¬ stead of numbers. Those taking Algebra II learned to use determi¬ nants, quadratics, and logarithms in solving prob¬ lems. Tangents, cotangents, sines, and cosines were used in solving identities by. the trigonometry students. Mr. Eivaz explains a tough algebra problem to Paul Mather.

Millie Kostur and Linda Chalfant sold Christmas projects made by art students. Some students at E.H.S. were given the wonder¬ ful ability to create. The Art Department offered these people an opportunity to develop their talents. Boosting school spirit was a big job for the Art Department. The students spent many long hours drawing and painting the signs that were used at the football games and for pep sessions. During the Christmas season one was quite aware of the work these art classes had done. Along with the decorations for the auditorium, special projects such as Christmas trees, Santa Clauses, and wreaths were made. Throughout the year, art students participated in the making of the posters for Fire Prevention Week and the annual Clean-Up Campaign. 26 These Girls Are Our Future Homemakers . . . “So—a needle pulling thread; Te—a drink with jam and bread” ... Cooking class gave the girls a chance to learn about nutrition and kitchen management. Starting from scratch, the girls not only learned how to pre¬ pare simple basic dishes but also attractive ways in which to serve them. By the end of the semester, the girls had learned the fundamentals of cooking. The other semester course in homemaking was clothing. In Clothing I, the girls were instructed in hemming, cutting out patterns, making buttonholes, and knowing and using the parts of the machine. Clothing II and advanced clothing prepared the girls to apply the basic skills previously learned. Home nursing, a one-semester course, was offered to instruct girls in first aid treatments and caring for invalids. Maria Marianos, Lynn Ward, and Carolyn Richardson are learning to prepare a new dish. Mrs. Tyler helps Charlice Cline with her sewing project as Sandy Spence hems Alice Wilke’s dress. 27 Bringing enjoyment to the many students was the goal of Emerson’s music department. Throughout the year the band, orchestra, A Cappella and Glee Club spent many hours practicing their numbers which were presented in their annual spring concert. Emerson’s band prepared pre-game and half-time shows for football games and also participated in the Purdue Band Day at Purdue University. It was sometimes asked to take part in civic affairs. The pep band, composed of a selected few, added additional spice to the pep sessions. The orchestra members were called upon to perform for gradu¬ ation ceremonies and for various school activities. Taking theory and harmony entitled students to a music major. In this course they learned the structure and composition of music.

School and Industry Join Forces Chris Rogers and David Krieter work on advanced designs in drafting. Industrial arts taught Emerson students creative¬ ness and originality in preparation for careers in the mechanical fields. Drafting students practiced primary and advanced designs, according to their individual ability. They learned to plot building and shrubbery layouts in preparation for careers in architecture. Machine shop students worked with lathes, drills, buffers, and grinders to create tools such as ham¬ mers, screwdrivers, and various other items useful in domestic life. Future carpenters of Emerson used the same basic tools to make tables, chairs, lamps and gunracks. Students interested in gasoline engines and their functions enrolled in the relatively new course to learn their proper care and operation. This includes the repair of lawnmowers and small electrical appliances. 29 Miss Ban instructs first-year Spanish students in the use of the labs. Language Study Increases at Emerson Students prepared for further education through language courses offered at Emerson. The ever-changing world needs people well-versed in different languages. Fluency in various tongues may very well aid a student in later life. Latin is no longer a spoken language, but the study of Homer’s Odyssey related conditions of another world. French is the language of love and many students worked up gradually from a mere “Parlez-vous francais?” to a more difficult, “La Tache du Petit Pierre.” “Como esta usted?” is the Spanish way of saying “How are you?”. Emerson’s Spanish students learned customs along with the tongue. The new lab system advanced the study of languages and enabled more students to take advantage of this new technique of learning. 30 One, two, three, four . . . one, two, three, four was a fa¬ miliar sound in the physical education department during the 1962-63 school year at Emerson. President Kennedy’s physical fitness policy affected Emersonians in that a rigor¬ ous schedule of activity was introduced here. Gym classes participated in exercises including push-ups, toe-touches, and jumping-jacks. Team sports such as swimming in Emerson’s new pool, relays, volleyball, touch football, and softball added to the variety of other physical education activities enjoyed by Emersonians. Good sportsmanship and top performance were the pri¬ mary objects of this type of training. Through Emerson’s athletics, students worked hand-in-hand toward physical and mental fitness. Strong minds as well as strong bodies were the goals of the department as its students were urged to take part in all activities.

Business Aids Emerson Students Emerson offered various business courses to in¬ sure an apt student’s success in his chosen field. General business was the basis for a career in almost any field. Bookkeeping taught the student to keep ledgers and journals. Shorthand and typ¬ ing aided students in quick note-taking and neat¬ ness, now and in the future. Distributive Education offered students practical training for a future in business. First-year stu¬ dents learned techniques of salesmanship in the classroom and second-year students trained in business firms in the afternoon. Clerical practice taught students to use adding machines and various other machines and new methods to make office work easily and quickly done. Clerical practice students transfer figures from texts to 32 Pictures Record Events at Emerson Emerson’s Photography Department aided the boost¬ ing of social events by insuring the presence of a repre¬ sentative. The photographers tried to cover every phase of student activities. Sporting events such as the Horace- Mann-Emerson football game were recorded as were the cheering fans and the grid stars on the field by the Emerson Photography Department. Students are responsible for the transportation of screens and projectors to and from classrooms, and the showing of informative films. Audio-visual students as¬ sisted teachers by making sure the correct films were distributed where they were requested. The photography students not only snapped the pic¬ tures but were required to process them also.

ROW II, 1 to r: Miss Hazel Grieger, Mr. Daniel McDevitt, Mrs. Helen Conway. History of the world began with the caveman in his primitive state in world history. It developed into the wars and the quest for Christianity. Blood and circuses entertained the nobles of that time and gladiators were forced to combat beasts in the arenas. U. S. history picked up the pace with the colonization of Columbus’ and Vespucci’s America, later to become the United States. World geography took students on a tour of the world, emphasizing terrain and natural resources. Man’s social problems were solved in American prob¬ lems and government students discussed politics on local, state, and national levels. Modern American eco¬ nomy and business practices were studied in economics. 34 Emersonian and Norse Wind staffs combined their efforts in an endeavor to produce publications worthy of Emerson. Members of the Norse Wind staff participated in after-school sessions that consisted of proof-reading galleys for spelling and usage errors. They set up the paper and cut or lengthened articles as needed. The Norse Wind was improved in both quality and quantity by the new tabloid form. Emersonian staff members drew layouts, wrote copy, and reduced and identified the endless sea of pictures to appear in the 1963 Emersonian. Students were trained in advertising during the summer, before the beginning of this school term. They learned to make catchy ads to please the eye and attract the reader. This was the first time a course of this type has been offered at Emerson because of the newly-revived policy of advertising in high school publications.

Emerson’s Marching Band displays its talent at a foot¬ ball game. ORGANIZATIONS Within the Call Without organizations, school would have been a monotonous daily duty with only vacations in the limelight. Organizations provided the curricular and extracurricular activities needed to bring variety to student life. Whether denoted as a club, organization, association, or committee, all joined in the purpose of promoting interests in things besides books and grades. Athletics-minded girls developed their skills in G.A.A. team sports after school, while lettermen bet¬ tered their sportsmanship by joining the E Club. Students interested in teaching or business careers focused their interests on F.T.A. or F.B.L.A. The students who were dramatically inclined involved themselves in the Drama and Debate Clubs. Those bilingual students participated in their respective lan¬ guage clubs. Science Club interested chemistry and physics students, while those with creative minds worked in Desines. Social and Booster Committees encouraged students’ attendance at all social-functions. Some students limited their activities to one club while others had varied interests and participated in several. Nearly everyone participated in at least one organization. Students may be reminded of their specific interests through Organizations . . . “Within the Call of the Bugle.” of the Bugle F.B.L.A. girls sell taffy apple? for their organization.

Representing the entire Emerson High School stu¬ dent body is the Executive Board of the Student Council. The board is under the direction of Mrs. Catherine Greenwald, Council sponsor, and student- elected officers. Three officials head the govern¬ ment: the president, the vice-president, and the sec¬ retary. Along with the officers, the board consists of boy and girl representatives and the presidents of each class. Other members include representatives from the various organizations in Emerson classified into groups such as language clubs, career clubs, and publications. Stressing the principle of serving the student body and the community, the Council directed the Christ¬ mas Basket Drive, and worked to make successes of Youth Appreciation Week and the SOS Humanity Drive. The Executive Board’s efficiency and earnestness both in presiding at assemblies and in planning Council activities helped to make this year a memorable one. 38 Founded in 1930, the Emerson Chapter of the National Honor Society was the first chapter to be granted to a high school in the Gary Public School System. The purpose of the society is to recognize students who have excelled in scholarship, leader¬ ship, service, and character. Members are chosen twice a year from the Senior and Junior Classes by a faculty committee. Not more than five percent of the juniors and not more than ten percent of the seniors in the first semester of the school year, and fifteen percent of the seniors in the second semester of the school year, are eligible for membership. To be a member of this society is not the result of a short period of diligent work; it is the product of four years of constant effort.

Counting the day’s receipts are advertising manager, Shirley Campbell, and business manager, Vivian Davis. Emersonian staff members Jo Anne Bubik, Diana Prentiss, Carolyn Ranney, and Suzanne Karan ponder the placement of copy on annual sheets. 40 to Produce Emersonian and Norse Wind Working diligently toward the production of a suc¬ cessful yearbook and newspaper, staff members often heard these familiar words, “How many yearbooks have you sold?” “You have to work at selling ad¬ vertising!” “Who is ready to type this article?” “Meet your deadline on time!” From September to June the editorial staffs of the Emersonian and Norse Wind, with the aid of faculty advisors Mrs. Margaret Smar and Mr. John Han¬ cock, worked to make this year’s publications the “best ever.” Preparing picture schedules, writing copy for the Emersonian and articles for the Norse Wind, select¬ ing a yearbook cover and theme, planning yearbook pages, and selling publication subscriptions are only a few of the tasks involved in producing the Emer¬ sonian and the Norse Wind. For the first time in several years, Gary Public High Schools have been permitted to include adver¬ tising in their publications. Accordingly, an adver¬ tising section was incorporated in the Norse Wind and Emersonian. Soliciting advertising from Gary businessmen helped staff members maintain the fi¬ nancial stability of the publications. Norse Wind Editor Dale Robison smiles when deadlines are met.

Jane Reynolds Deputy organized the Girls Athletic Association in 1927. During its first year, forty-four girls were initiated; today, the organization numbers three hundred. Competing to win the class plaque, G.A.A. mem¬ bers exhibited athletic prowess in speedball, basket¬ ball, volleyball, baseball, and swimming. Looking forward to the banquet in May, freshmen and sophomores hoped to be chosen the outstanding players of their class, juniors hoped to become board members, and seniors chose successors to their cher¬ ished board positions which they had achieved through hard work and effort. Memories of G.A.A. may fade, but its ideals of loyalty, sportsmanship, and sociability will always remain part of our high school memories. G.A.A. girls learn to officiate the games they play. 43 Budding Actors Further Their Talents hy Dino (Mickey Tesanovich), helps Shirley (Paula Sivertson), carry her books to the library. Mr. Sheridan (Whitt Cruce), Dino’s parole officer, tries to help Dino (Bruce Cox), understand himself and learn to get along with other people. Taking Part in Phases of Stage Production As Drama Club Technical Director, Alan Templin, junior, has charge of the lighting and set construction of all club produc¬ tions. Taking part in the various phases of stage pro¬ duction, Drama Club members, as a group, are able to learn something of dramatic technique, directing, stagemanaging, lighting, costuming, make-up, set creation, and publicity promotion. Placed in one of four committees—publicity, pro¬ gram, production and technical, club members are able to choose the one committee they would like to work on throughout the year. Combining fine acting with thought-provoking plots, the result of the talents of these amateur thes- pians was shown in the presentation of the fall and spring plays, “Dino” and “The Diary of Anne Frank.” DRAMA CLUB OFFICERS: Alan Templin, technical di¬ rector; Paula Sivertson, president; Rose Mary Clark, girls’ treasurer; Tony Muffoletto, boys’ treasurer; and Pat Long, publicity director. 45 Concert , Marching , and Pep Bands Participate FLUTES-PICCOLOS: Martha Fleming, Janet Andrey, Linda Berry, Stephanie Vondorkovich, Elizabeth Knowles, Loma Wetzel, Mike Muzar.

Masters and Mr. Joseph Zawistowski, the Emer¬ son marching and concert band has developed into one of the school’s most valuable organizations. Adding to the zeal of Emerson football fans with colorful half-time shows and providing a pep band to spur enthusiasm at pep rallies, band members played an important part in school life. More important than these services were the presentation of the annual spring band concert, and participation by band members in the State Solo and Ensemble Contest. These activities proved the merit of the work that the marching and concert bands had done throughout the year.

Public programs gave Concert Orchestra members an incentive to work. The first semester’s work consisted of preparing for their Christmas debut. Years of study on the part of these aspiring musicians helped to make the night a success. Completing this project, members had little time to relax before it was time to enter the annual State Solo and Ensemble Contest. Emerson musicians scored well in both local and state competition. Taking part in the City Wide Music Festival, providing intermission music at Drama Club plays, and performing during Commencement ceremonies, the Emerson High School Concert Orchestra is an organization in which Emersonians can take pride.

These girls received a glimpse of the career of teaching by substituting and assisting for teachers. By doing so, the students decided whether or not they were suited for this career. New members were inducted into the club in the fall, and all members attended a senior breakfast which concluded the year. The Distributive Education Program, better known as D.E., was designed for students who wished to make a career in business. Mr. James Fallace, sponsor, found jobs for these students in the afternoon while they attended classes in the morning.

Among its annual activities were the Christmas Vespers program and carolling in the halls of E.H.S. as well as in Mercy and Methodist Hospitals. In the spring, the A Cappella had its concert, and partici¬ pated in the City Wide Music Festival, and in the Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises.

Mrs. Leora Davies, sponsor, and Antionette Bod¬ nar, president, worked closely together in planning Booster Club activities such as selling coffee and doughnuts and sponsoring voting. Two members from each class were elected by their classmates to serve in this organization whose primary purpose was to further the glory of the Gold and Gray. Playing the latest record hits and supervising all school dances were functions of Emerson’s hard¬ working Social Committee. Under the leadership of sponsor, Mr. Lawrence Deleurere, and president, Richard Hansen, the So¬ cial Committee took charge of seeing that I.D. cards were presented at the door by Emersonians before they entered the dances, and that Emer¬ sonians observed proper behavior habits.

Their biggest affair was the annual Saturnalia, celebrating an ancient Roman holiday. The members dressed in gaily- decorated Roman costumes with sparkling jewelry to match. The first year students acted as slaves, and were required to cater to the other students. Music and entertainment were provided for this occasion by club members. Other activities included a pic¬ nic at Indiana Dunes State Park, and the National JCL Convention held annually at different colleges and universities. The officers, Liz Henderson, president; Jim Jas¬ person, treasurer; and Bob Bodnar, secretary; helped with all the club’s successful dances. To investigate analytical and persuasive think¬ ing in the area of drama was Mr. John Asker’s aim in organizing the Debate Club ' this year. Members took trips to the Purdue Legislative As¬ sociation and Debate Conference, the Regions De¬ bate League Conference, and the Indiana State De¬ bate Conference at Terre Haute.

Promoting advanced study in the areas of science, humanities, and foreign languages were goals of the Joe Berg Program. At the general meetings which were held once every two months, guest speakers contributed in learn¬ ing more about the different phases of biology and chemistry. These students toured an oil refinery, the Gary Steel Works, and the Argon National Laboratory. Students recommended by teachers were given tests to qualify for the advanced program. Those re¬ ceiving the highest scores were chosen as representatives. The World Affairs Forum, sponsored by Miss Hazel Grieger, dealt with world problems. Students were selected on the basis of interest, grades, and teachers’ recommendations. Two juniors and three seniors were selected from each of the eight Gary schools. Emerson’s topic for discussion this year was “The Common Market.” JOE BERG—SEATED, 1 to r: Mike Keogh, Steve Whetmore. STANDING: Robert Pittman, Bill Jamski, Terry Wolf- rath, Tom Torie.

ROTC Boys Learn Phases of Military Life All phases of military life were covered in the high school preparation stage, the Reserve Offi¬ cers Training Corps. Directing the Emerson unit was Sergeant Allen T. Costello. Bullseyes were hit more often after daily prac¬ tice by members of the Rifle Team. Emerson’s Rifle Team won the city championship after de¬ feating Tolleston at a home match. They com¬ peted with teams from Gary and out-of-town for the honor. Officers were Bruce Summers, presi¬ dent; Ed Pickford, vice-president; and Tom Cor- der, secretary-treasurer. After winning first place in competitions at Tolleston Field in 1962, Emerson’s Drill Team was hopeful of retaining the trophy again in 1963. Often, alternates of the sixteen-member team challenged other members for their positions. Head commander was Fred Trathen.

After completing and pass¬ ing a test which covered all military tactics, the boys had personal interviews with Major James Reeves, Professor of Military Science of the city of Gary. Tom’s appointment was based on his high test score and the interview. Emerson’s annual R.O.T.C. Dance, held in honor of the three girls chosen as Honorary Cadets, was held at the American Legion Post. The girls were pre¬ sented with roses and engraved bracelets by the R.O.T.C. as remembrances of their positions. After the annual Military Ball, for which all Gary units combined, Emerson cadets planned a field trip and senior supper to conclude the year. HONORARY CADETS—1 to r: Pam White, Captain, Paula Sivertson, Lieutenant Colonel, Connie Corder, Captain. 61 Loyal Emersonians back their team at Homecoming. SPORTS Within the Call of the Bugle Jonathan Blanton attempts to score against East Gary Edison. Sports occupy an important place in the extra¬ curricular life of Emersonians for both the partici¬ pant and the spectator. Accompanying the pigskin were red flags, flashing scoreboards and the brilliant lights of Gilroy Field. Also frequenting the stadium, Emerson’s cross-country and track teams were as fleetfooted as the wind. The grapplers mounted their third season hopeful of receiving the city champion¬ ship. Basketball entered the sports picture abounding with referee whistles, free throws and overtimes. Con¬ tinuing with a fairly new sport, Emerson golfers minded their clubs and tees carefully. Bats, balls, and mitts were again brought out for the 1963 Norse¬ man baseball season. The 1962-63 sports picture is complete. Another year of sports activities has passed, but that clear, musical tone before each event will often be remem¬ bered. Join us as we recall sports “Within the call of the bugle.” 63 Golden Tornado Lose to Wallace; Lou Barreiro listens intently as he receives instructions for the coming half.

Victories over arch rivals Horace Mann and Froebel proved to be the high points in 1962 for Emerson’s Golden Tornado. The 3-6 record com¬ piled by the Tornado was the same as their 1961 record. Following a 7-6 defeat inflicted by Lew Wallace in the Football-O-Rama, the season officially opened at Mishawaka where the Cavemen drubbed Emerson 35-0. Defeats by Hobart, 26-19, Tolleston, 39-13, Lew Wallace (Homecoming), 13-0, and Whiting, 25-13, followed. The team finally exploded as they beat Froebel, 25-6, Valporaiso, 21-6, and, at Horace Mann’s Home¬ coming, dashed the hopes of the Horsemen for a conference title, 26-13. This marked the second time in the last three years the Tornado has upset Horace Mann. The Roosevelt game marked the end of the season and the winning streak as the Panthers toppled Emerson, 13-7. Missing next year will be senior co-captains Gerry Elston and Eddy Volk, seniors Alex Brown, Gary Burkhart, Fred Callaway, John Chionos, Whitt Cruce, Larry Gee, Dave Noble, Tony Poupoupolos, Ray Radoja, Roger Sullivan, Walter Thompson, and Tom Torie.

Pin him!” This was the cry heard from the bench all season long as Emerson’s wrestling team, coached by Harry Szulborski, finished the 1962-63 sea¬ son with a 5-4 record. In both city meets and sectional competi¬ tion, the Norsemen had one first place win¬ ner. Garry Burkhart placed first in the city, and Roland Wilson in the sectionals. As a team, the Norse finished fourth in the city. Winning varsity letters were seniors Garry Burkhart, Dave Krieter, and Tony Poupolos; junior Paul DiPiazza; sopho¬ mores Alan Pinkstaff, Roger Siler, and Ro¬ land Wilson; and freshman Rusty Popa. Next year’s team will lose, through grad¬ uation, Tony Poupolos, who wrestled in the 138-pound class; Dave Krieter, 156-pound class; and Garry Burkhart, 165-pound class.

Upsetting Tolleston in the Holiday Tournament, 65-63, and near upsets of East Chicago Washington and Lew Wallace in the sectionals highlighted the 1962-63 season for Emerson’s Norsemen, head coach Bill Klug, and his assistant, Chris Christoff. The Norse were well through the season with vic¬ tories over Lew Wallace, 59-57; Whiting, 57-55; Tolleston, and Wirt, 47-40, when it was learned that forward Willie Jones was overage. As a result, the four victories were forfeited and Emerson en¬ tered the sectionals with an 0-21 record. Against Wallace in the sectionals, the Norse fell behind early by twenty points. Their second half rally was short and the Norse fell, 63-60. In the course of the season, Jon Blanton, Kurt Coolman, and Joe Tidwell turned in twenty-point games. Coolman had the high scoring game for the season with 26 points against Tolleston. Lost through graduation this year will be guards Jon Blanton, leading conference scorer for the Norse, Tom Gayda, Woody Willis, and Kurt Coolman, lead¬ ing team scorer for the season.

The tee-breakers ended the season tied with Hammond Morton for twenty-third in a field of twenty-six. Victories were scored over Hammond Clark, Hammond Tech, Wirt, Roosevelt, and Edison. In the City Golf Tourney at Gleason Park, Emerson finished third. Lost through graduation last year were Joe Festa and Dan Kapica. Returning lettermen Jeff Davies, Eddie Evans, seniors; Dennis Denslaw, and Don Wharton, juniors, formed the nucleus of the 1963 team coached by Mike Sosh. Dennis Denslaw takes a practice shot for the upcoming season. Norse Place Second in Conference Volk unleashes portside delivery against Horace Mann. 1962 saw Emerson’s baseball team tied for first place in the Eastern division of the West NIHSC with a 7-3 record. The first victory for the Norse was at the expense of Hobart in a non-conference encounter, 8-7. Fol¬ lowing victories were scored against Tolleston, 18-5; Lew Wallace, 1-0; Horace Mann, 2-1; Tolleston, 11- 2; Froebel, 5-0; Horace Mann, 2-1; and Valparaiso, 4-2. Defeats were administered by Froebel, 8-7; Roose¬ velt, 3-2, in a non-conference game; Valparaiso, 1-0; and Lew Wallace, 7-0. In the best two-out-of-three play-off for the con¬ ference crown, the Hornets stopped the Norse in the first two games.

Seniors Harry Flournoy and Rickey Smith set new records while junior Fred Boddie tied an old mark in a season which saw Emerson’s track record drop to 2-7. Flourney broke the old record of 2:02.2 for the 880-yard run with a clocking of 1:59.8 in the sectionals. Smith topped the old shotput record of 50 feet 6% inches with a heave of 51 feet 4 4 inches against Edison. In the Conference Trials held at Gilroy, Boddie ran the 440-yard run in :50.7 which tied the record. Head coach Harold Connelly and assistant coach John Petrou will have twelve returning lettermen on this year’s squad. They will be senior Kurt Coolman; juniors Gordon Coolman, Fred Lutz, Jack Phillips, and Joe Tidwell; and sophomores Byron Ayers, Don Baker, Mike Karlsrud, Larry Klim, Judson Parker, Larry Parker, Alan Pinkstaff, Bob Utroske, and Rich Utroske.

People made up the personality of Emerson; with¬ out them, the building would have been a shell filled with mere memories. Emerson’s people were divided into classes. Freshmen got their first glimpses of high school with initiations by the G.A.A. and the football play¬ ers. Freshmen and sophomores attended the Freshman Frolic and Sophomore Hop, respectively, as their first semi-formal high school dances. Juniors got their class rings and attended their first prom. Seniors experienced the thrill of being on top and the regret of not doing all that they could have done. From the beginning to the end of high school, Emersonians changed. They developed from “green,” self-conscious freshmen to experienced and worldly seniors. Classes came and went, but the people of E.H.S. remained primarily the same—friendly and warm-hearted. Here are the 1962-63 Classes . . . “Within the Call of the Bugle.” 81 Mr. John Smith, assistant principal. Mr. Homer Simpson, assistant principal. Adult Leaders Influence Emerson Uppermost in the minds of Emerson’s adult leaders was the welfare and happiness of E.H.S. students. Emerson’s principal, Mr. Marion B. England, and the assistant principals, Mr. John Smith and Mr. Homer Simpson, worked busily to keep Emerson in order. Their day was filled with activities such as interview¬ ing, overseeing school improvements, and checking on supplies. During assemblies, Mr. England and either Mr. Smith or Mr. Simpson spoke to the student body on such matters as school spirit, absences and tardi¬ nesses, and the need for better care of school equip¬ ment. They also attended school activities, curricular and extracurricular, such as teas, luncheons, dances, games, and Parent-Teacher Association meetings and functions. Even though these gentlemen were always quite busy, they had time to talk with students. Mr. Marion B. England, principal. 82 Officials Govern Gary’s School System “Onward and upward” may well be the motto of our Gary School Board and its superintendent. These officials strive to improve and perfect the operations of the Gary Public Schools. The School Board ' is appointed by the mayor and its members serve for a term of four years. They can also be reappointed at the expiration of their terms. The Board, in turn, appoints the superintendent, whose staff members check on each of the schools and their activities. The School Board is ultimately responsible for all School City activities. They also review con¬ tracts of teachers, principals, and custodians. Dr. Alden H. Blankenship, Superintendent of the Gary School System. SCHOOL BOARD—SEATED, 1 to r: Raymond Zale, Leroy Bingham, Andrew White.

They were always willing to lend a help¬ ing hand when we were faced with problems that seemed large and unsolveable. The counselors helped us choose courses, find proper colleges, listened to personal problems, and many other things. It can be said with no hesitation that they were masters of all trades. The ladies of the E.H.S. office staff were always ready to cater to our millions of questions, deposit money for us, write admits, sell tickets to games, and issue cash boxes for other extracurricular ac¬ tivities. Their duties include everything from sort¬ ing report cards to issuing paper from the supply room. OFFICE STAFF—ROW 1, 1 to r: Maureen Link, Sylvia Frances, Mary Calloway. ROW 2, 1 to r: Minerva Short, Judy Radulovich, Anna Marcikic. 84 Emerson Administration Has Many Phases CAFETERIA STAFF—1 to r: Jesse Burr, Frances Tichansky, Mary Miklos, Margret Stutesman, Ollie Robinson, and Anna Everything from soup to nuts was prepared in the immaculate stainless steel kitchen of Emerson’s cafe¬ teria. Daily, during the lunch hour, E.H.S. scholars could be observed waiting anxiously in line to sample the culinary feats of our lady chefs. The well-fed Emersonians will long remember the delicious meals and taste tempting smells that originated in our cafe¬ teria. Another phase of Emerson’s administration was that of Mrs. Agnes Fonville, home visitor. Mrs. Fon- ville’s duties included visiting the homes of habitual¬ ly absent students and checking to verify that all absences were justifiable. She worked in cooperation with Mr. Smith, assistant principal in charge of school discipline. Bandaging scrapes and cuts, taking temperatures, and keeping Emersonians healthy were the major concerns of Emerson’s registered nurse, Miss Adeline Golkowski. She kept Emersonians safe from disease and bad health. Mrs. Agnes Fonville, home visitor. Miss Adeline Golkowski, school nurse.

INDEX Within the Call of the Bugle Newspaper subscriptions are kept in order with the aid of index cards. Proper nouns refer to names of particular persons, places, and things. At Emerson, all of these came into the picture. Places Emersonians visited were the language room, the cafeteria, Memorial Auditorium, Gilroy Stadium, local snack shops and restaurants, and their own homes and the homes of fellow stu¬ dents. “Things” meant a dance in the girls’ lower gym, an assembly in the auditorium, a class ring, a newspaper, or even a biology book. Most important of these, however, is persons, and all the persons at Emerson are pictured in the 1962-63 Emersonian. The index section is an aid for Emersonians to find themselves and their friends . . . “Within the Call of the Bugle.” SENIORS Anderson, Arnett 86 Andrews, Judy 86 Armour, Geraldine 50, 56 Batalis,

the annual. MERCHANTS Within the Call of the Bugle Emerson students patronize local merchants. Businesses play a significant role in the life of Emerson School. By advertising in the 1963 Emer¬ sonian, business concerns promoted good will within the school community and enabled the staff to pro¬ duce a bigger and better yearbook. Through adver¬ tisements students and their parents were made aware of the products and services available in the Gary area. Services rendered by businessmen developed friend¬ lier relations in the school community. Students ate with friends at the local restaurants and drug stores. Department and clothing stores provided items soon to become teen-age fads and fashions. Doctors and dentists in the downtown district kept Emersonians and their parents in good health. Hair grooming was taken care of at local beauty and barber shops. Stu¬ dent and teacher-owned automobiles were kept in good working order by East Side gas stations. The 1963 Emersonian extends its appreciation to this year’s advertisers. Out for a new catch? Try a new hairstyle. It’s sure to do the trick. BEST BEAUTY SHOP 31 East 6th Avenue “Don’t worry.

Yearbook staffs seldom work without the help of others. This year, the Emersonian staff has had to employ the services of the photography department, the art depart¬ ment, and many individuals outside of the school. Without their aid, the publication of this book would not have been possible. TAYLOR PUBLISHING COMPANY
