V. Emerson High School Gary, Indiana Volume Llll mersonian This Is Emerson, Our School When the Steel City of Gary was but two years old the need was seen for a high school to accommodate the children of the ever-growing number of steel work¬ ers. The school was named Gary High School and later changed to Emerson High School. Emerson was built with a unique educational system inspired by William A. Wirt which was known as the " Work, Study, Play " plan. It soon became nationally famous. Since that time, 56 years ago, Emerson has grown and prospered with age. A primary building was added in 1926 and with the addition of a third building this year, the school was split into two separate schools—Emerson High School, and the Emerson Elementary School. Named after Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson tries to uphold the ideals of free-thinking and freedom which were first conceived by its namesake. Trying to attain the ideals for which Emerson stands is the goal of every Emersonian. Emerson ' s influence is shown in many of Emerson ' s school functions. From the Student Council based on a democratic form of government, to the elec¬ tion of officers by the entire student body, our school shows that it believes in all the ideals of its name¬ sake patriot, Ralph Waldo Emerson. We, the staff of the 1964 Emersonian, invite you to join us as we review the events of the year 1964 at Emerson, Our School.

The activities that took place during the year will be the first recalled in later years. This year ' s activities began with Gary ' s annual Foot- ball-O-Rama. Following this came weekly school dances, week-end dates, and parties. Homecoming, fall, and Scum Week came in quick succession and everyone seemed busy. The year ' s school activities came to a sudden halt as the terrible news of President John F. Kennedy ' s as¬ sassination became known. All Emersonians were sad¬ dened and shocked at the news and joined with the world in a month ' s mourning for the late 35th President of the United States. The G.A.A. Couple Dance, " One Snowy Evening . . . , was the height of the EHS Christmas season as every¬ one welcomed the two-week vacation. After the Christ¬ mas holiday, most students returned to their studies as the end of the semester approached. The advent of spring brought with it the Sophomore Hop, Freshman Frolic, Senior Day, and Spice and Variety. As the year drew to a close, activity increased as prep- arations were made for Class Day, graduation, Baccalau- reate, and-the most important event of the year, the Junior- Senior Prom. Graduation is a sad day for all seniors but yet a proud one as they look to the future. Join us as we review School Life in ' 63- ' 64 at Emerson, Our School. Roller skating parties provided many Emersonians with a new source of enjoyment this year. 1 Roses and Tears Climax EHS Homecoming Homecoming is thought of as a happy time when Emerson alumnae come back once again to cheer their Alma Mater on to victory and to view the Homecoming Queen. 1964 proved to be no different. Amid brightly colored crepe paper, balloons and flowers, they watched as seniors, Shirley Bewick, Dawn Davies, Pat Long, Lynne Oros, Donna Samardzija and Jan Vician were pre¬ sented as Homecoming Queen candidates. To those students attending their last Homecoming game, the festivities have special meaning, for the full realization of the word " senior " comes to light. Tension and excitement increased during half-time ceremonies as the queen candidates circled Gilroy Stadium in open converti¬ bles accompanied by senior escorts Louis Barreiro, Marty Culver, Ted Kolodzinski, Nino Muffoletto, Tim Roy and Bob Stutesman. Tension reached a climax when the 1964 Homecoming crown was given to Shirley Bewick. The school played host to Emerson alumnae, parents and teach¬ ers at the Homecoming Dance which followed the game. Jan Vician, Football-O-Rama Queen runner-up. Queens Add Color to White Collar Queen, Grace Sanchez, poses with her court Lynne Oros, senior, ancJ Marion Simon, senior. Shirley Bewick, 1964 Football-O-Rama Queen. Hectic School Life Queens, courts, candidates, outstanding students— all of these enter into the school life of high school students. Emerson proved to be no different in electing, voting and honoring senior royalty. Shirley Bewick begin the year by reigning as Em¬ erson ' s Football-O-Rama Queen at the annual Foot- ball-O-Rama games in Gilroy Stadium. The candidates for the position were seniors Shirley Bewick and Jan Vician and juniors Karen Conquest and Norma McAAillan. The F.B.L.A. chose their White Collar Queen at the annual club potiuck in February. This year ' s queen was Grace Sanchez with Marion Simon and Lynne Oros serving as her court. These two honors, Football-O-Rama and White Collar Queen, contributed to the list of " Emerson royalty " and helped make the seniors ' final year at Emerson a well-remembered one. 8 MISS GOLD-MR. GREY CANDIDATES- I. to r: STANDING: Pat Long Donna Samardzila, Shirley Bewick, Valerie Riley, Dawn Davies. KNEELING: Richard Vantrease, Gordon Coolman, Nino Muffoletto, and John Hennessey. PTA Awards Miss Gold, Mr. Grey Trophies Many honors are bestowed upon senior stu¬ dents throughout the year. One of the highest honors a senior may receive is the winning of the title of Miss Gold or Mr. Grey. The Emerson P.T.A. presented its annual Fun Festival in February. The announcement of Miss Gold and Mr. Grey was made at the variety show. The ten candidates chosen for the honor were seniors Shirley Bewick, Gordon Coolman, John Cothren, Dawn Davies, John Hennessey, Pat Long, Nino Muffoletto, Valerie Riley, Donna Samardzija, and Richard Vantrease. This year ' s winners were Shirley Bewick and Richard Vantrease. Mrs. Glenn Springmann, P.T.A. president, pre¬ sented the trophies to the winners. 9 Bob Sumler, senior, assists Carol Crawford, freshman, with her skates at the G.A.A. skating party.

Junior Zorrine Radovich and senior Edith Janes rest during a G.A.A. hike. 10 Emerson students found many ways in which to enjoy themselves before, during, and after football and basketball games. Before the football games there was the usual wait for buses which provided ample time for socializing. Before basketball games there was the long walk to Memorial Auditorium and the usual scurry for choice seats. A favorite pastime among the senior girls during basketball games was to tally the baskets of a single player. During football season, students either ran to get a good seat on the bus or searched for car keys after the game. During the basketball season, they made the usual rush from Memorial Auditorium to the Fla¬ mingo where pizzas, cokes, and conversation were in order. Of course, the girls who were " going steady " with a member of the team found themselves a part of the unique " Waiting for my Boyfriend " Club. Many football and basketball games will come and go, but for each Emersonian, the one most remem¬ bered will be the one in which the most fun was had, before, during and after the game, for that was the time that friends became closest. There will be many fond memories for future Emerson alumnae. " Hey, he made another basket! O.K. girls. I ' m leading now! " Sports Events Highlight Activities for Many " Hurry up, fella ' s. " Fight back, Torrtado, fight back! " Cheerleaders Sport New Cheering Style in ’64 Varsity and reserve cheerleaders have the job of boost¬ ing their prospective teams ' spirits. The job is difficult at times but this year ' s cheerleaders proved themselves quite capable. Under the leadership of senior Dawn Davies, the varsity cheerleaders learned new cheering techniques, such as the " California " style of cheering. This added va¬ riety and appealed to those who attended the games. The reserve cheerleaders boosted the reserve teams and showed a great potential as future varsity cheerleaders. Both squads are under the direction of Mrs. Leora Davies, Booster Club sponsor. Her enthusiasm and spirit has sparked many fires in the hearts of Emersonians. Many Emerson students will hold fond memories of the pep sessions held after school on or before the day of a game. The cheerleaders, along with student help, pre¬ pared many skits and arranged for speakers to help boost the team ' s spirit. The cheerleaders began the year by selling Booster Club pens, bookcovers and pennants. During the Home¬ coming season, they made decorations for the game and sold balloons and confetti. To add to the spirit of the basketball season, the cheer¬ leaders sported new basketball uniforms this year. The money for the uniforms was raised through the selling of coffee and doughnuts to night school students. Mrs. Leora Davies, Booster Club sponsor, is often referred to as a " dynamo of energy and spirit " by students. DELEGATES TO " ITS ACADEMIC " —!, to r: Angeline Korfias, Tim Kraft, juniors, Biil Jamski, senior, Mr. James Clary, Emmett Paul, junior, and Robin Stuart, senior. Students Develop Scholastic Interest Emerson students were proud to learn that their school would be represented on the television pro¬ gram, " It ' s Academic. " The students chosen to repre¬ sent Emerson werer seniors Bill Jamski and Robin Stuart and juniors Angeline Korfias, Tim Kraft, and Emmett Paul. The group was coached by Mr. James Clary, junior high social studies teacher. Each year, Emerson sends a junior to Purdue to participate in the Summer Science Institute for High School Students sponsored by Purdue University. Be¬ cause of his excellent record in science, Michael Ke.ogh was chosen to attend this year ' s seminar. Emer¬ son is the only school in Gary which still recom¬ mends students to this free summer course. Miss Esther Tinsman, Emerson biology teacher and Mr. Douglas Tweeten, chemistry teacher, recommend the students. Tim Kraft, junior, tries to concentrate in preparation for " It ' s Academic. " Costumes Featured at " Scum” Dance " Scum " week is a week when freshman girls who are interested in joining G.A.A. undergo intense trials and tribulations forced upon them by senior G.A.A. members. If they accomplish this they are considered worthy of membership into G.A.A. Highlighting the week is the annual " Scum " Dance. " Scums " are dressed in various costumes and the girl who sports the most ingenious costume wins the " Best-Dressed Scum " award. The day after the dance brings a picnic at Dunes State Park for rushers and scums only. The final activity of " scum " week is the solemn ceremony of induction where the " scums " are ac¬ cepted as G.A.A. members. Wanda Jurdzy exhibits the latest fashion at the " scunH ' dance. A look of humility seems to appear on the face of " scum " Katherine Covington. G A A Christmas Dance Tops Yuletide Season Seniors John Hennessey and Dawn Davies take time for a dance while others find time for friendly conversation. Climaxing this year ' s Christmas season was the Girls ' Athletic Association ' s Christmas Dance, " One Snowy EvenTng ... " For the first time, the affair was held in the girls ' lower gym which was decorated with royal blue and white crepe paper. Tiny snowflakes and snowmen, attached to the crepe paper, added a festive air. A mural, covering one complete wall, was painted by senior Donna Samardzija. There was also a giant snowman made out of tissue paper and an eight foot Christmas tree which carried out the dance theme. San Remo ' s Restaurant proved to be a popular place for couples to eat, dance and enjoy themselves after the dance. At the end of the year, the G.A.A. holds its final social event, that of the Annual Awards Banquet. Many different awards are given out at that time but the three most hoped for awards are the Class Plaque, for class team sports; the Lazart Sportsmanship Award, for outstanding sportsmanship throughout, the year; and the Jane Reynolds Loving Cup, in honor of the founder of G.A.A., and represents the ideal G.A.A. member. 15 P.T.A.

SEATED, I. to r; George Stupar, Randy Kraft, Bill Velasquez, Bob Sumler, Don Wharton, Jim Kupres, Linda Heilman. STANDING, I. to r.; Yvonne Richards, Don Baker, Wayne Key, Ron Powell, Larry Herr, Bill Quinlan, Tim Kraft, Nestor Velasquez and Frank Grist. Emersonians Boost School Spirit School spirit is reflected in the girls who pop popcorn and sell cokes at Emerson ' s games. Many changes in school spirit have taken place at Emerson. 1964 has seen Emerson ' s spirit made stronger. Organizations like the Booster Club, the Dance Band, and G.A.A. have helped to make the spirit stronger. Booster Club lifted spirits high by painting signs and arranging pep sessions. The Dance Band again won several awards and played for many school activities. G.A.A. added spirit by providing " poppers " and " sellers " for the foot¬ ball and basketball games. Spirit at ol ' EHS has grown considerably strong¬ er and the students, as loyal Emersonians, have backed their organizations and supported the spirit. Many students have organized for a com¬ mon purpose—to make school spirit at Emerson as strong as possible. 18 Pride Prevails at ”E” Day Assembly Emerson ' s second annua l " E " Day, which was held to recognize individuals and groups for commendable service, was held during the 9:20 and 10:20 periods of May 9, 1963.

England, Emerson principal, addresses the student body during the " E " Day Assembly. 20 CTlcacfemics a Cj nerson Our ScJioo Mass confusion reigned at the beginning of this academic year with the addition of a 7-minute regis¬ ter meeting. A new time schedule bewildered stu¬ dents and faculty during the first few weeks of the new school year. When routine was finally establish¬ ed, Emersonians buckled down to a year of study¬ ing and learning, finding it could be both interesting and challenging. The freshmen were introduced to biology, algebra, and some even tackled French, Spanish, or Latin. The sophomores discovered a whole new world in the study of world history, geometry, and that second year of foreign language. New con¬ cepts in Algebra II and an awareness of American heritage constituted a great part of the junior pro¬ gram. For the senior, the anxious awaiting of gradua¬ tion was offset by intensive assignments in govern¬ ment, economics, health and safety, and for a few, trigonometry, or advanced literature and composi¬ tion. The most difficult was preparing themselves for the future. Their effort was evident on the Honor Roll for they usually had the highest percentage of stu¬ dents listed among the four classes. Join us as we review our studies at Emerson, Our School. Government students completely absorb themselves in the latest issue of U.S. News and Wor d Reports. 21 Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Each year as students progress through high school they obtain a knowledge of the fundamentals of English grammar. As freshmen they learn the technique of sentence structure and experience reading such novels as the The Yearling, which takes them to the fertile swamp lands of Florida and reveals the backward life of a boy named Jody. During the sophomore year, students are given a taste of poetry and view William Shakespeare ' s tragedy, Julius Caesar. Silas Warner introduces the sophs to realistic fiction and presents them with their first lesson in the Humanities. Concentrating on character analysis, the juniors dwell on Per Hansa, the rugged Norwegian pioneer of Giants in the Earth, while research work, a bibliography, at least 100 note cards, and term papers round out their junior year. As final preparation for college, students with a teacher ' s recommendation take advanced literature and composition during their senior year. With intense composition drill and the reading of poetry and literature from Sophocles to R. E. Sherwood, stu¬ dents obtain more knowledge as they prepare for the future. 22 Constitute E.H.S. English Program As students, study high schcjol English, they find they must now rely on the libraries a great deal. They are called upon to put to use the skill of finding the right type of book for various research projects. With the wide span of topics and new material being introduced each year in English, students can be found spending many hours in the Senior Library. Students may utilize the reference section in order to find out what type of literature was produced during the Elizabethan Era. Still others are found searching through The Reader ' s Guide To Periodical Literature looking for an article perhaps, on George Bernard Shaw. Not only do students become proficient in using the card catalogue, but often they refer to the vertical file for various pamphlets, pictures, and leaflets. As freshmen, students are given their first big assignment in English, they now begin to realize the numbers of hours which will be devoted to library work. Milton Hinchman and Louis Miazga browse through shelves of books as they look for material for their term papers. Mr. Tweeten introduces his chemistry class to volume and density problems. Lab Experiments, " Homo Sapiens,” and Such puzzling questions as How far does light travel? and What exactly is a cosmic ray? were answered by E.S.H. students taking physics. With the study of energy, heat, sound, electricity, and the energy of moving bodies, physics pupils were able to grasp basic fundamentals in the ever-chang¬ ing world of science. As chemistry students studied organic compounds and the distillation of water, biology pupils were learning the classification of animals. One of the main activities of biology students is their annual insect collection. Students are required to make a display of insects including one from each of the eight orders. Insects were not the only study area for the biology students since many hours were spent reviewing the types of bones in the human body and memorizing their functions. Bio-physics is a combination of biology and physical science in which the two types of sciences are simplifi¬ ed so that students can easily understand the world of science. Trig. Equations Challenge Students Mr. Jones and Ken Stinson explain a trig, problem through the use of a drawing. Mathematics is the world of today and tomorrow. With the dire need for students who have had a sound background of math, E.H.S. students are urged to take the four-year mathematics plan. Algebra I introduces students to quadratic equa¬ tions and starts them on their way to solving for X and Y terms. Plane geometry, as the second step, brings the world of figures into scope. Right angles, equilateral triangles, proven theorems, and postulates are only a part of the Euclidian geometry. Algebra II continues further in the field of precise calculations. Students are now concerned with solving equations dealing with tangents and co-sines. A semester of solid geometry dealing with objects of the 3 dimensions; length, breadth, and thickness, enables students to move onto a semester of Trigono¬ metry, ending up the final step in high school math program. All students are not so interested in the higher mathematics courses and so, General Math, Applied, and Senior Math give them the basic fundamentals of arithmetic and aid their memory by reviewing all types of problems. Camera Bugs Lurk Through Emerson Tony Medina begins in the early evening to develop the recent pic¬ tures he has taken. Hold it! Smile, you ' re on Candid Camera. That was the sound echoing from the walls of E.S.H. Everywhere students turned, someone was taking their pictures. Students taking a course in photography become proficient picture-takers under the guidance of Mr. John Holubes. These interested Emersonians learn the art of photography and are taught the fine points about the developing, enlarging, and reprinting of pictures. Audio-visual classes instruct students in the opera¬ tion of projectors and filmstrip machines. Here stu¬ dents aid teachers by operating the projectors when various types of educational films are shown in the classroom. Photography is especially important at Emerson since pictures are needed in the production of the yearbook and the keeping of school records. One member of the photography class to which the Emersonian and Norse Wind staffs are especial¬ ly grateful is junior Tony Medina. Most of the photos included in this yearbook are a result of his many hours in the darkroom. After developing the pictures Tony enlarges the ones that need to be enlarged. 26 Boys Learn Vocational Techniques After a brisk block ' s walk on a chilly morn¬ ing, many high school boys find themselves in shop class. Here a drill press or lathe may be waiting to be used in the making of a baseball bat or a wooden bowl. Gasoline engines and small motors are also provided for boys in order that they may learn the basic parts and operations of a car. Returning to the main building and climbing the stairs to the attic, Emersonians are set for drafting. Mr. Val Aurit gives instructions on blue¬ print making, and future architects get their first taste of complicated drawings. If a student con¬ tinues further in drafting, he experiences sketch¬ ing landscapes, houses, and electrical drawings. Many E.H.S. students interested in creating figurines and bowls take arts and crafts, which provides an opportunity for the boys to work with plastic, leather and sheet metal. Advanced drafting students are able to produce such skilled architectural drav ings. Boys taking drafting work hard in order to complete their drawings Louis Grozdanis practices on a lathe in machine shop. 27 Urs. Masters conducts the Concert Orchestra as they prepare sic for the Manchester University field trip. Music Students Strive for Perfection Students interested in music find that orchestra, band, A Cappella Choir, and Glee Club provide them with opportunities to utilize their talents. The Vocal Department, including the A Cappella Choir and the Glee Club, practices daily and pro¬ vides the music for the Christmas Vespers Service and on the last day of school before the Christmas vacation, go caroling. The A Cappella Choir spends a day harmonizing to such tunes as " Climb Every Mountain " and " On the Street Where You Live. " Concerts, football games. Memorial Day Parade, and field trips are only a few items on the agenda for the band students each year. During the fall, students can hear the penetrating sound of the drum beat as the band practices from early morning to ‘late after-dinner rehearsals. Orchestra students are equally busy with con¬ certs and many jobs as accompanists by request from different clubs. The instrumental courses not only teach students how to play an instrument, but familiarize them with the works of the great composers and give them an understanding of worthwhile music. Girls, as future homemakers, are naturally interest¬ ed in sewing and cooking. So, it was typical to see E.H.S. girls rushing a little now and then, to be sure that those cakes and cookies were out of the oven in time. The main purpose of cooking, however, is to teach students how to plan appetizing, yet well- balanced and nutritious, meals. Of course, sewing is a part of a homemaker ' s world too, so it is no surprise to find dozens of Em- ersonians learning the basic techniques of a seam¬ stress. Starting out with simple garments such as blouses, girls learn to sew straight seams and to fit together the pieces of a pattern. Finally, after much practice, the girls attempt making a complete outfit. Since emergencies often occur in most homes, a knowledge of first aid is vital. A semester of home nursing instructs girls in the techniques of first aid and gives practical suggestions in the care of a family. Kathy Peterson begins a day of sewing by first threading the machine. Domestic Talents Stressed in Home Ec. Working in groups of threes and combining their efforts, E.H.S. girls are able to produce such delicious specimens. Languages Aid Man in Communication; Switches, tapes, and microphones, in the form of a language laboratory, aid E.H.S. students in learn¬ ing to speak another language. Students are able to obtain individual help from the teachers and by using the earphones. Thus, much of the shyness in speaking is overcome and students can hear their own pronunciation. From the Latin amo, amas, amat, to the Spanish, " Como esta usted? " Emersonians practice their new¬ ly-acquired vocabulary by repeating the words over and over into the microphone. During Emersonians ' third or fourth year of a foreign language, they are exposed to such novels as Don Quixote, written in Spanish, and to the Latin translation of Cicero. By reading such books, students gain a knowledge of what foreign writers feel, thereby enriching their knowledge of the world and its various cultures. Many students find taking a foreign language profitable, not only for college, but as an aid in developing their English vocabulary. Miss Ban watches as her students use the earphones to pick up techniques in speaking Spanish. 30 History Reveals Past Events Mr. Christoff lectures on one the phases of the Napoleonic Wars. History, as some put it, is the written record of man ' s existence on earth. With this in mind, E.H.S. students added world history as a part of their daily curriculum. Here man ' s life is traced back to the " Cradle of Civilization " in the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys. After obtaining a basic knowledge of man ' s life, students in their junior year then concentrate on U. S. history. Beginning with The Revolutionary War and continuing through to mcxfern day America and the cold wars, juniors review the history of the United States in order to grasp the significance of America and its place in history of the world. As seniors, students are exposed to the world of farm problems, and the capitalistic system through a course in economics. During the remainder of the senior year, students learn how the American government operates. A detailed study of federal, state, and local government in U. S. government classes enables students to see the excellency with which our government works, along with its pitfalls. P.E. Offers Students Cha nge of Pace Frank Anogianakis shows Cesar Alvarez the correct way to do sit-ups. Sound and intelligent minds must be accompanied by flexible and dexterous bodies. The object of the Physical Education Department is to help students develop their bodies as well as minds. Gym class is a change of pace for everyone. Here, students participate in exercises and team sports. The girls are apt to be seen chasing a soccer ball down the field during a brisk game of speedball, while the boys are doing calisthenics or enjoying a game of baseball. One of the many activities in which both boys and girls take an active part is tumbling. Here, students are put through a series of exercises to limber up the body. Then, under the supervision of the coaches, E.H.S. students start with the simple forward roll and gradually work up to such feats as front flips, walk-overs, and back flips. The main purpose for the requirement of two years of physical education is to keep America ' s students physically fit. 32 " Miss Jones, will you please type this letter and mail it right away? " In a few years, many students who took business courses will be hearing those exact words and will be utilizing a portion of what they learned in high school. Emerson offers Typing I and II to boys and girls who are interested in learning to type. For those who are truly interersted in becoming tomorrow ' s secretaries, shorthand, bookkeeping, and clerical prac¬ tice give students the fundamentals as well as the fine points of office work. Clerical practice instructs students in the opera¬ tion of various machines such as the adding ma¬ chine, and at the same time teaches them how to operate a mimeograph machine. In bookkeeping, students learn the intricacies in¬ volved in keeping ledgers, while shorthand I and II teaches them how to take rapid dictation. Since the business world of today is becoming more competitive, the mastery of these skills helps students in later life. Clerical Skills Mastery Aids Students Creativity Is Exhibited in Art Classes Sketching, drawing, and painting are a part of an art stu¬ dent ' s world. Under the guidance of Miss Lucille Solich, talented Emersonians learn to work in pure design, lettering, and murals. The creative and artistic talents of such students can be seen throughout the school. During the Christmas season, the art pupils take it upon themselves to paint snowy, woodland scenes and post them in conspicuous spots where the atmosphere they create can be enjoyed. Throughout the Yuletide day the artists exhibit their talents by making center pieces of styrofoam and decorative materials. During the entire year, the Art Department offers its services by making printed signs for many clubs and by furnishing signs and posters for pep sessions and athletic events. The E.H.S. Art Department also represents the Gold and Gray by participating in poster contests such as the Poppy Drive, the Apple Drive, Fire Prevention Week, and the Gordon ' s Fashion Contest. Art students display their talents through murals and mosaics. 34 Despite Handicaps, Staffs Survive Emersonian Staff Editor Jo Anne Bubik Business Manager . - Sandy Champion School Life .

If one glanced in room 205 about six or seven o ' clock at night, you would find the journalism classes, better known as the Norse Wind and Emersonian staffs, try¬ ing to meet deadlines. During the school day, the students learn the do ' s and don ' t ' s of of journalistic writing. For weeks on end. Journalism I students practice writing leads which initiate effective and meaningful new stories. The page editors frantically search the calendars for the week ' s news and send out reporters to get the stories. In Journalism II, page lay-outs and photo selection for the yearbook are planned and replanned. The staff searches Roger ' s Thesaurus, looking for interesting and effective words for the copy and headlines which must be written. The Emersonian staff must also meet dead¬ lines, and as March arrives, they work diligently in order to produce a completed Emersonian. Both staffs work jointly many times throughout the year helping each other meet deadlines and find many times that there just are not enough hours in the day. 35 Or anizaiions ai Cjmerson Our Sc ioof Organizations at " e.H.S. have something for everyone, whether they desire to be a teacher, homemaker, secre¬ tary, actor, athlete, artist, linguist, scientist, famous de¬ bater, musician, or a singer. The organizations at E.H.S. train students for any career. This is done with the help of the A Cappella Choir, Art Club, Booster Committee, Building and Grounds Committee, Concert Band, Dance Band, Debate Club, Drama Club, " E " Club, Future Bus¬ iness Leaders of America, Future Homemakers of America, Future Teachers of America, Girls ' Athletic Association, Girls ' Glee Club, Joe Berg Advanced Study Program, Latin Club, National Honor Society, Orchestra, Pep Band, So¬ cial Committee, Spanish Club, Student Council, which is the governing body of our school, and World Affairs Forum. These organizations teach students to accept responsi¬ bility and help them plan a future career. Organizations also play a big part in social activities. Not only do they sponsor dances, but also many school projects. The Christ¬ mas Basket Drive this year, jointly sponsored by the Stu¬ dent Council and the R.O.T.C., collected over 4,000 cans of food to give to ' the needy so that they might have a Christmas as merry as ours. The S.O.S. Humanity Drive is held each year to provide funds for a worthy cause. Join us as we review Organizations, ' 63-64, at Emerson, Our Schcx)!.

Serving as the representative group of the entire Student Council, the Executive Board strives to main¬ tain a high degree of unity among the students at Emerson. The board is under the leadership of Mrs. Catherine Greenwald, its sponsor, and its three main officers—president, vice-president, and secretary. In addition to the officers, the board consists of the president and boy and girl representatives from each class, and representatives from other school activities such as the language clubs, the career clubs, the music clubs, and publications. One of the most important endeavors initiated by this year ' s board was the Courtesy Drive. The drive was held to make students more aware of the need for courtesy at Emerson. The board also directed the Christmas Basket Drive, the SOS Humanity Drive, the Gold and Gray Gathering, and the Shakespeare Assembly. STUDENT COUNCIL OFFICERS: Richard secretary; Steve Szabo, vice-president. 5, president; Pat Long, Students Receive Scholastic Recognition Emerson ' s Chapter of the National Honor Society, which was founded in 1930 as the first chapter in the Gary Public School System, has maintained re¬ spected recognition from both students and faculty. The purpose of this society is to recognize students who show excellence in the fields of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. This year ' s new members were chosen during " the spring and were inducted at a special assembly. In¬ vited to this assembly were junior, senior, and honor roll students. A faculty committee selected those stu¬ dents who were invited to join. Honor Society members find time throughout the year for social enjoyment. The formal tea and the in¬ formal picnic are two such functions. Students who are chosen as Honor Society mem¬ bers truly hold a cherished possession. Membership in this society is a well-deserved honor which is the result of many years of untiring effort.

With reluctant beginnings in September, the staffs began to make preparations for the year to come. The Norse Wind staff members learn correct layout for the newspaper, while the Emersonian staff mem¬ bers learn new ideas in yearbook layout and copy writing. Among the tasks engaged in by the members are selling subscriptions and advertising space, writing and rewriting copy for the yearbook and articles for the newspaper, planning layouts for both publica¬ tions, and, most important of all, meeting deadlines. The efforts put forth by these students are dif¬ ficult and too often thankless. In order to have publi¬ cations that are a credit to Emerson, students must combine both time and effort in producing a year¬ book and a newspaper that can be shown with pride.

Students Boost School Activities To encourage Emersonians to regain the spirit of old Emerson was the dutiful task of this year ' s Booster Committee. The Committee, consisting of the Var¬ sity and Reserve cheerleaders and elected representa¬ tives from each class, handled such functions as Football-O-Rama, Homecoming, and the selection of Miss Gold and Mr. Gray. Mrs. Leora Davies, sponsor, worked directly with the students in planning pep sessions, in making signs for games and other events, and in handling cheerleading tryouts. The untiring efforts put forth by this group helped to make the students at Emerson aware of their duties in con¬ tributing to school spirit. Along with supervising all school dances and handl¬ ing the coat check room, the Social - Committee made necessary the use of identification cards for admittance to many of the school functions. Un¬ der the leadership of its sponsor, Mr. Lawrence De- Leurere, the Committee made school dances a success¬ ful part of the year ' s activities.

Qualities of Leadership and Sportsmanship The Girls ' Athletic Association was organized in 1927 by Jane Reynolds Deputy with a total mem¬ bership of forty-five girls. Today, one of the largest in the school, the membership totals three hundred. Members engage in such sports as softball, speed- ball, basketball, volleyball, and swimming. The Varsi¬ ties chosen from each prospective sport compete to win the class plaque. As freshmen and sophomores, the girls hopefully work toward receiving awards for being outstanding in their classes, juniors hope to be chosen as board members, and seniors participate for the last time in many activities which have been an important part of their school lives for the past four years. Under the leadership of their sponsor, Mrs. Helen Mosier, the girls learn to be loyal Emersonians, good sportsmen, and, above all, well-rounded per¬ sons. 43 Drama Club Introduces Students to Various Drama Club is designed to give students the op¬ portunity to participate in one of the many phases of dramatic production. Publicity, set designing, direct¬ ing, and acting are among these. This organizatic , one of the largest in the school, is made up of students from each of the four high school classes. These students learn the techniques of production through the presentation of students plays. Special activities of the club include a cabaret party for both new and old members, a trip to see a stage production, a special trip to Loyola University, and an awards banquet at the end of the year. Students who did outstanding work during the year are rec¬ ognized and officers for the next year are an¬ nounced at the banquet. Drama Class I enthusiastically rehearses for " The Admirable Crichton. " Phases of Theatrical Production Students portray Biblical figures in " Before the Flood.

Carrying on many of the fine traditions at Emerson under the direction of Miss Grace Sayers, the A Cap¬ pella Choir enjoyed another successful school year. At Christmastime, choir members have the opportunity to spread cheer by caroling to away-from-home pa¬ tients at both Mercy and Methodist hospitals. The Choir, too, adds beauty and solemnity to the school ' s Vesper services. Combining efforts with the other seven Gary school choruses, the Choir takes part in the annual City-Wide Music Festival in May. This Festival is the product of months of earnest rehearsing. The Spring Choral Concert and Emerson ' s Com¬ mencement exercises and Baccalaureate services are among the other activities in which the A Cappella plays an important role. To give special recognition to its senior members, the Choir holds a special banquet near the end of the school year. The banquet climaxes the year ' s efforts and achievements. 46 Singing Brings Joy to Glee Club Members Providing joyful music is the main objective of Emerson ' s Girls ' Glee Club. Directed by Miss Grace Sayers, the girls learn to appreciate and help others appreciate music. Performances in the Christmas Vesper Services, the Spring Choral Concert, the Commencement exercises, and in the City-Wide Music Festival keep these girls busy rehearsing throughout the year. The Girls ' Glee Club annually travels to Chicago to see one of the musicals being given during the year. This year the members enjoyed a performance of " Camelot " during the month of February. Songs, both traditional and new, were sung throughout the year by the members. " Velvet Shoes, " a new selection for the group, was sung along with the traditional favorites, " Mary ' s Lullaby " and " Silver Bells. " A special thrill for the girls during the annual Spring Concert, was the singing of " Tonight " from the hit musical " West Side Story.

Emerson ' s Band Department plays an important role in the lives of persons in the Em¬ erson School community. Functioning as both a concert and a marching band it provides many services. Among the services are marching in parades, concerts, participating in the City-Wide Music Festival, and performances by the first-rate dance band. Participation in the annual State Solo and Ensemble Contest is one of the main activities of the year. The fine work done by these students is revealed at this contest. Students also participate in the trip to Purdue University for Band Day, the football game half-time shows, and the various Band parties held throughout the year. The excellent work done by the Band is a tribute to Emerson. The many services render¬ ed by its members are appreciated by all. 48 in a Successful Spring Concert TRUMPET; Wayne Key, Don Baker, Ron Powell, Jim Carter, Bob Hatcher, John Grasham, Larry Herr, Dorothia Benedict, Joe Rosas, Bill McCall, Mario Valtierra.

STRING Membership in the Concert Orchestra is not something which is given for the asking. It must be e ned through years of intensive study of music and the playing of an instrument. The desire to attain the status of Concert Orchestra member is the incentive which urges the grade school student to work diligently in his Elementary Orchestra course. The members of this organization participate actively in the Orchestras many functions. The annual State Solo and Ensemble Contest, the City-Wide Music Festival, the Orchestra Concert, and the Commencement exercises are among these activities. To be a member of this organization, the student must sacrifice much time and effort. This, however, is a worthwhile sacrifice to the student who enjoys music and enjoys serving his sch x l. The Concert Orchestra is an organization in which Emersonians can take pride because of the unselfishness with which it renders its services to the school and to the community.

These girls perform with the Marching Band at foot¬ ball games and at various parades. The majorettes assume a position which requires them to learn the importance of punctuality and responsibility. The Art Club carried on many projects during the school year. Helping to make signs for other school organizations and handling the sale of Christmas decorations made by the members were a part of the club ' s activities. Miss Lucille Solich, sponsor, aids her members in learning to appreciate art and in experimenting with work in sculpture, water colors, oils, ceramics, and design.

Future Homemakers of America, one of the newest organizations at Emerson, forms a bond between girls with homemaking or domestic interest. Under the leadership of their officers and Mrs. Iris Martinsen and Miss Margaret Wilson, their sponsors, the mem¬ bers engaged themselves in varying activities. One of the activities which highlighted the year was the very successful candy drive which was held during late November and early December. By working together, the girls in this organization learn to be skillful in the domestic practices of cooking and sewing. The Future Business Leaders of America are a group of students united to help each other develop the qualities of leadership, interest, and understanding in business. The requirements which must be met for membership are that the student must be at least a junior and have at least one business course. Among the annual activities are a potiuck, an Awards Ban¬ quet, and an Induction Service for new members. 54 and Preparation of Their F utures F.T.A.

The Distributive Education Program is one designed for students who wish to secure a business career upon grad¬ uation. Mr. Floyd McKibben, sponsor, instructs these stu¬ dents in the varying aspects of business and helps them to obtain jobs. The junior and senior students participating in this program attend regular classes in the morning and work at various business establishments in the afternoon. The experience gained through the Distributive Education Program helps to assure students of a promising career in the future. Future Teachers of America, more widely known as F.T.A. and sponsored by Miss Veronica Gurauskas, is a club organized for students who are interested in joining the teaching profession. Through this organization the students are given an opportunity to learn more about the career by assisting and substituting for faculty members. The club ' s activities include a fall induction for new mem¬ bers and a breakfast honoring seniors at the conclusion of the year.

Language Laboratories Aid Students Spanish Club is an organization composed of stu¬ dents from the Spanish I, II, and III classes. Under the leadership of Miss Mary Ban, sponsor, the club strives to bring together those students with interest in the Spanish language. The major event held by the Spanish Club each year is the Spanish Fiesta. Prepara¬ tions for the Fiesta usually rest with the sponsor and the club officers. At the Fiesta, students witness en- ertainment of a Spanish variety along with the tradi¬ tional breaking of the pinata. This club, as well as the other foreign language clubs, is most valuable to its own members. However, the traditions learned and practiced by these mem¬ bers help to add variety to life at Emerson. SPANISH CLUB OFFICERS—I. to r: Mike Carnahan, vice-president; Paul Coker, treasurer; Sharon Kummerer, secretary; not pictured, Mildred Knezevic, president. Latin Club, under the direction of Mr. Lawrence DeLeurere, sponsor, undertakes many worthwhile responsibilities throughout the year. The most im¬ portant affair held is the Saturnalia, a festival cele¬ brating an ancient Roman holiday. For this festival the girls ' lower gym is transformed into a Roman dining hall in which the Latin students dine and en¬ joy various types of entertainment. Other activities of the club include the annual picnic held at Indiana Dunes State Park during the fall at which the members enjoy a lunch, hiking, and perhaps a football game, and the National JCL Convention at which Latin stu¬ dents compete for medals. Each year on Class Day a Latin Scholarship is award¬ ed to the senior who has done the finest work in Latin during the four high school years. The desire to win this award and to become better Latin stu¬ dents encourages the club members to work hard in studying Latin as well as enjoying the many activities of the organization. LATIN CLUB OFFICERS—I. to r: Tina Kallimani, secretary; Barry Hansen, president; Alex Glumac, treasurer; Diane Phillips, librarian. 56 The Joe Berg Advanced Study Program is designed to aid gifted students in studying the areas of science, the humanities, and foreign language to a greater degree than is possible during the regular six-hour school day. The purpose of the meetings, held once each month, is to acquaint students with new ideas through study and lecture. The World Affairs Forum is composed of two junior and three senior students from each of the eight Gary high schools. The students for this program are selected on the basis of interest and academic achieve¬ ment in the field of social studies. Miss Hazel Grieger, Emerson ' s sponsor, works with the students through¬ out the year. Emerson ' s Debate Club, functioning for its second year, is striving to make itself known by conducting open debates on some of the controversial matters concerning the students such as the school accredita¬ tion crisis. Under the leadership of Mr. John Aaker, sponsor, the group is learning the importance of an¬ alytical, persuasive, and most important, straight thinking. 57 Drill Sergeants, Inspection, and Discipline Christmas Basket contributions to the As a high school preparatory course, the Reserve Officers Training Corps helps to teach able young men the qualities of obedience and courtesy, along with military routine. The Honor Council, the governing body of the R.O.T.C., formulates the constitution and rules, makes all major decisions, and takes care of courtsmartial. Social activities, too, are important in the lives of these boys. The R.O.T.C. Dance held in the fall is the event at which Honorary Cadets are announced. These girls are chosen by the members. The Military Ball, a spring affair, is given for the enjoyment of the members and their dates. This year replacing Sergeant Allen Costello is Sergeant Leslie Clintsman. The fine work done by the R.O.T.C. in keeping order at school sporting events is appreciated by the student body as well as the faculty.

Sports events had the added support of the newly-formed cheering block and provided lively entertainment for both specta¬ tors and participants. Gilroy Stadium, Memorial Audi¬ torium, and games away from the home fields, added incomplete assignments, hoarse voices, and a group of either jubilant or sad Emersonians. The school gyms were used for wrestling matches which continued to increase in popularity throughout the year. Track, golf, and base¬ ball also attracted a growing number of fans among the student body. Varsity and reserve cheerleaders added pep and spirit to every game. Their spirit-rousing cheers gave confidence to the players and made the spectators an active part of every game. Sports have always been a favorite pastime of all Emersonians. At E.H.S. it is an honor to represent your school in an athletic event. Those who are not participants are proud to be boosters.

Emerson, along with the seven other Gary high schools, helped kick-off the 1963 Gary football sea¬ son in the annual Football-O-Rama. Lew Wallace ' s Hornets supplied Emerson ' s opposition and triumphed over EHS, 13-0. The Tornado traveled to Highland to officially open the gridiron campaign and emerged from the fracas with a 13-13 tie. After bowing next to Hobart, 26-0, the Tornado bounced back to defeat Tolleston, 13-12. This was a come-from-behind victory highlighted by a stout Tornado defense in the fourth quarter. Following the Tolleston game, Emerson met the powerful Lew Wallace Hornets and were defeated, 38-6. A 13-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jerry Wellman to halfback John Hennessy accounted for the Tornado tally. The Tornado grabbed an early 6-0 lead against East Chicago Washington ' s Senators by virtue of a 25-yard T.D. run by Hennessy. This lead was not enough, how¬ ever, as Washington tallied four times and finished the game with a 27-6 win. Following East Chicago came losses to Froebel, 34-0; to Horace Mann in the Homecoming game, 28-7; to a surprisingly improved Valparaiso squad, 26-0; and to city-champion Roosevelt in the season finale, 32-6. Leading scorers for the Tornado were halfback John Hennessey and fullback Rich Patrick. Each had three touchdowns for eighteen points. Halfback Bob Pittman scored two touchdowns against Highland for twelve points but was Injured later in the year. Quarterback Jerry Wellman tossed one touchdown pass and tackle Julius Vinzani kicked three conversions. Hennessy pro¬ vided the highlight of the year by going 80-yards around end on the first play from scrimmage against Horace Mann to give EHS a brief lead in the Home¬ coming game. Missing from graduation next year will be backs Fred Grasham, John Hennessy, Theo Koulianos, Bob Pittman, Rich Vantrease, and Manuel Ypsilantes.

William Hanyard slides to a stop halting a fast break against E. C. Washington. In the 1963-64 season, Emerson ' s Norsemen did what no other EHS quintet has been able to do with¬ in the last few years; they advanced to the finals of the Gary sectional. Without a doubt, this was the number one highlight in EHS sports for the year. Emerson started the season by defeating East Gary Edison, 41-40, but then followed nine straight defeats. In the remaining eight games, the Norse played .500 ball, winning four out of eight. The last week in February brought " Hoosier Hysteria " and victories by the Norse over Wirt, 46-41, and River Forest, 68-57, as they moved into the finals against Froebel. Here they were defeated, 82- 49, thus ending the season. Three players of the 1963-64 squad will be lost through graduation—John Hudgins, forward-center; Greg Moore, guard; and Nino Muffoletto, forward- guard. Returning from this year ' s varsity will be Ben Bunkley, Dennis Jolly, John Jolly, William Hanyard, Pete Lalic and Steve Szabo. 68 Reserves and Frosh Tomorrow’s Norse BOTTOM ROW, I. to r: B.

This was because the grapplers were busy compiling a 9-2 record and placing second in the sec¬ tional wrestling meet. In the city-wide wrestling meet held at the end of the season, Emerson ' s one winner was Roland Wilson, junior. In the sectional meet, three Emersonians came away with first places. The winners were Wilson, for the sec¬ ond year in the row, and the Popa brothers, Rodney, freshman, and Rusty, sophomore. Next year ' s team will lose four members via the graduation route—Michael Collins, Paul DiPiazza, Randy Kerhin, and Rich Vantrease. However, Coach Szulborski will have eight lettermen returning for the 1964-65 sea¬ son. They are—Rodney Popa, freshman; Danny Mala- matos and Rusty Popa, sophomores; and Bryon Ayres, Mike Karlsrud, Alan Pinkstaff and Roger Siler, juniors.

In 1963, Emerson ' s baseball team matched its record of the previous year, 7-3, and finished in third place in the West NIHSC. The Norse, under the new leadership of Coach Szulbor¬ ski, began the 1963 season in quest of their second straight division championship, having tied with Lew Wallace for the title in 1962. Opening with victories over Froebel, 10-0, Tolleston, 6-3, Lew Wallace, 8-4, Horace AAann, 4-3, and Froebel, 12-0, EHS appeared to have a secure hold on first place. The Norse then lost their next three games by a total count of three runs, 1-0 to Horace Mann, 1-0 to Wallace, and 3-2 to Valparaiso. Rebounding from these heart- breakers, Emerson closed the season with a 4-3 squeak¬ er over Valpo, and an 8-0 waltz against Tolleston. Returning to bolster the 1964 squad are—juniors Bob Ricard and Jerry Wellman, and seniors Lou Barreirio, John Cothren, John Demakos, Fred Grasham, Randy Kerhin, Nino Muffoletto, Bob Pittman, Jim Rubens, and Rich Vantrease.

Eddie Evans set a new record for EHS by shooting a three over par 39 on the par 36 front nine at South Gleason Park. This was done against East Chicago Roosevelt. In 1963 Coach Mike Sosh, in his first year as golf coach, built his squad around returning lettermen Jeff Davies, Dennis Denslaw, Eddie Evans, and Don Wharton. With Davies, Evans, and Dave Noble, grad¬ uated, Coach Sosh will be using Denslaw, senior, and sophomore Dave Carnahan as the nucleus of his 1964 squad. Returning along with Carnahan, Denslaw, and Wharton, are sopho mores John Burns and Joe Day, and juniors Neil Byrum, Jim Kupres, and Mick Tesanovich.

Emerson ' s cross-country team, under the super¬ vision of Coach Harold Connelly, finished the 1963 season with a 4-7 record. Victories for the thinclads came against Edison, Wirt, Horace Mann, and E. C. Roosevelt. The fact that EHS fell below .500 for the second time in the past five seasons can be attributed mainly to a lack of experience. The only returning major letter winners from 1962 were senior Gordon Cool- man and junior Judson Parker. Returning minor let¬ ter winners were sophomores Jimmy Mantakounis and Frank Senovic. Major letter winners for 1963 were senior Gordon Coolman, juniors Jud Parker and Ken Wilson, and sophomores Jimmy Mantakounis and Raleigh Plesko. Of these five, only Coolman will be lost because of graduation.

In 1963, Emerson ' s track team finished the sea¬ son with an 8-4 record, better than in 1962. In addi¬ tion, EHS placed second in the annual city-wide Fresh¬ man-Sophomore Track Meet. First place went to Roosevelt. In compiling their excellent record. Coaches Harold Connelly and John Petrou fielded a team which had a majority of sophomores. Because of this, 1964 should be especially bright for Coach Petrou, who will be starting his first year as head coach. His as¬ sistant will be Coach Christoff. Many EHS records were tied or broken in 1963. Junior Byron Ayres tied a record by running the 60-yard low hurdles in 14.0 flat. Alan Pinkstaff, junior, broke the EHS freshman-sophomore shot-put record with a toss of 46 feet, 16 inches. The mile relay team of juniors Byron Ayres, Don Baker, and Bob and Rich Utroske set a new record with a 3:37.5 clocking. Only one member was lost through graduation in 1963. He was Kurt Coolman who ran the 440-yard dash and the half-mile. Leon Stath and Larry Parker are shown in spring practice practicing the important " sprinter ' s start. " 77 CPeop e ai Cjmerson Our Sc oof Memories make up a school year but without the people in the school these memories would be empty. People at Emerson are the life blood of the school and make the school a place with a certain air of liveliness and vitality. Faculty, principals, office staff, secretaries, cafeteria staff, and students all are a part of people at E.H.S. They determine the mood of the school, whether it be great pride in a victory over archrival Horace Mann, mourn¬ ing the loss of our youngest President, or an atmosphere of concern for up-coming exams. The memories these people gain during their years at E.H.S. will never leave them. These memories will vary with the individual. Some will concern initiation into G.A.A., the time he made a touchdown, popped at her first Sectionals, or took that long walk down the aisle at Memorial Auditorium,- the climax of a high school career. Join us as we meet the people at E.H.S. and as we re¬ view the memories they have made at Emerson, Our School. Junior boys find the front stairs very relaxing while waiting for the lunch bell to ring. 79 Emerson ' s principal, Mr. Marion B. England, to¬ gether with Assistant Principal, Mr. John Smith, have done much this year in keeping school life at Em¬ erson well organized. Mr. Homer Simpson, former Assistant Principal, became Principal of the Emerson Elementary School in early fall. The administrators checked on absences and tardinesses, talked with parents and students about school problems, and regulated office procedures. On several occasions, the principals spoke to the student body concerning school spirit and care of school property. They also attended extracurricular and school activities. Despite all of these things to keep them busy, Mr. England and Mr. Smith took time to consider the welfare of each Emerson‘stu¬ dent. Mr. Marion B.

Often times, teachers are subjected to indif¬ ference, uncooperation, and over-whelming odds. Yet they do not give up but continue to persevere, trying even harder. The main job of any teacher is to teach students so that they can understand their respective subjects. All teachers do this and something more. What about the educators who spend long tedious hours working with students after school? Yes, what about the teachers who fall into this category. Here are found men and women who unselfishly give of their time. These are teachers who devote their after school time to various activities which benefit the students. What is their reward? The satisfaction they gain after seeing that their efforts were not in vain.

STANDING: John Cothren, Jim Rubens. Commencement Awaits Class of ’64 Pat Long speaks to the student body at an assembly in the auditorium. As the seniors of 1964 embarked on their last year at Emerson, they were enthusiastic, scholastical- ly-minded, and eager for the responsibilites and bene¬ fits that were part of their hectic senior year. But, as the year draws to a close, they are left with many fond memories. As they reminisce, they see them¬ selves and their classmates as freshmen, just be¬ ginning their high school years. Their legs were shaky and their knees weak, but they continued in their quest for knowledge. By their sophomore year they were not quite so green, but were a long way from their final goals. Their junior year followed and with it came class rings and the Prom, amid much study and paper work. However, it was decided by most that the senior year is the best of all. Students felt that they ac¬ complished many things this year both academically and socially, with the help and guidance offered by their class sponsors and officers. When they receive their caps and gowns in the Emerson tradition, they will be jubilant, but behind all of the happiness will be sad and tearful hearts. In a few days they will leave Emerson where they have spent four memorable years. In spite of the many tears shed, their gradua¬ tion will be one of the happiest days they ever ex¬ perienced. 90 Decisions Confront Busy Seniors Janet Diane Andrey Concert Band Concert Orchestra All City Band Pep Band Frank Anogianakis Steve Archer Drama Club Debate Club Norse Wind Band Latin Club Mickey Arias Sandra Gail Barr Louis Barreiro Peggy Ann Barton G.A.A.

The juniors experienced a year filled with fun, new responsibilities, and last, but not at all least- hard work. As upperclassmen they gained new prestige and an awareness of the future. They all shared the study and anxiety preceding exams, and the relief afterwards. When they weren ' t study¬ ing they spent many an hour writing letters to col¬ leges, and businesses, narrowing their ultimate choice to a few. Numerous social activities and functions provided the basis for experiences to be shared and remember¬ ed for years to come. Among these cherished mem¬ ories was the day their long awaited class rings brought and the excitement of the Junior-Senior Prom. The junior year is a year of joys and sorrows, of successes and failures, but looking back, this thought occurs to them, " Could anything be as wonderful as our junior year? " Juniors use class time to prepare for a test 107 Class of ’65 Prepares for Busy Senior Year Addison, Annette Alexander, Mary Anne Alicea, Carmen Anast, Nick Andrews, Mary Archer, Lynn Arnett, Peggy Arthur, Robyn Atsas, Linda Ayres, Bryon Baker, Donald Baker, Mabel Bartley, Ron Benjamin, Ronnie Berry, Helen Blankenship, Juliar Bloomingdale, Cheryl Boyd, Richard Boyle, Carole Bragdon, Mary Brown, Larry Bryant, Linda Capata, Gloria Carter, James Centeno, Sonia Cerda, Joe Chaney, Sharon Chionos, Becky Christo, Pat Clifford, Mike Coker, Paul Conquest, Karen Cook, Wendell Daggy, Bob Day, Diana Dean, Marcia Dodds, Jackie Fortner, Homer Gajewski, Jerry Gallagher, Pat Galouzis, Tom Georgiadis, JoAnn Goodwin, Harold Gorby, Linda 108 Hopes Grow High as Year Fades Gorski, Dave Gould, Dennis Grau, Sharon Gusman, John Hackett, Pamela Hake, Kathy Hanaway, Carol Harris, Danny Hazimihalis, Sophie Heilman, Linda Hinchman, Milton Hollingsworth, Yolanda Holman, Vivian Huntley, Diana Igneizi, Carol Hie, Cathy Jablonski, Linda Jasperson, Jim Kalavros, Thelma Karedes, Margie Karlsrud, Gary Kazonis, Nick Key, Jerry Klim, Lavry Korfias, Angelina Koschal, Bob Kozar, Joe Kraft, Tim Kruchowsky, Pam Kummerer, Sharon Kupchik, Nancy Kupres, James Lalic, Millie Lowe, Bobbie Lowe, Jfm Lutz, Barbara Mako, Mike Maleniak, Tamara Marley, Donna Marschand, Lyle Marsden, Dale Massas, Ramona McCarthy, Timmi McKee, Diane McKnelly, Cheryl McMillan, Norma 109 Prom Thoughts Are of Fun and Relaxation Medina, Tony Melvin, Lee Miazga, Lewis Miller, David Miller, Dirk Milisavijevic, Angie Miranda, Estrella Momcilovich, Diane Montgomery, Gail Morris, JoAnna Morris, Stella Nixon, Gloria O ' Brien, Collette O ' Brien, Jane Pappas, Rena Parker, Judson Parker, Larry Parrish, Ronald Patrick, Rich Paul, Emmett Pendleton, William Phillips, Roger Pinkstaff, Alan Powell, Ronald Praseak, John Prentiss, Sheryl Pritchett, Leila Radovich, Zorine Repya, Joe Ricard, Robert Rodriguez, George Rogers, Joe Romanowski, Ted Rubens, Sandy Saliaris, Peggy Santiago, Ruth Schneider, Roger Sheper, Claudette Short, Pat Siler, Roger Sims, Cary Smith, Margaret Springmann, Tom Spurlock, Barbara Stone, Joe Stupar, George Sullivan, Ronald Sumler, Bob 110 While Term Papers Revert Juniors to Study Svengalis, Ken Swain, Donna Szabo, Steve Taylor, David Tesanovich, Milan Thomas, Annette Thomas, Renee Thompson, Diana Timberman, Bruce Tipton, Brenda Tomala, Lillian Torres, Raymon Tsakrris, Mary Utroske, Bob Utroske, Richard Van Gorp, Charlene Velasquez, Nestor Velaquez, William Velez, Elisa Vinzani, Julius Vulinovich, Donna Warchus, Joyce Ward, Lynn Wardrop, Deloma Warne, Sue Webster, James Wellman, Gerry West, Martha Whiting, Velma Williams, Clavin Wozniak, Dorothy Yargas, Jean Zarakas, Sevasti Zukowski, Mitzi Zurn, Marlene Sophs Scamper Through Second Year SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS-SEATED, I. to r: Patty Neel y, Kathy Thompson. STANDING: Richard Pierce, Mike Ypsilantes, John Burns. The sophomores had good reason to be proud and happy because they were no longer green freshmen. Instead they were sophomores who knew their way around and felt at home in Emerson High. They greeted their new subjects with eagerness and open minds because they realized they would soon be at the half way mark of their high school career. Among their many assignments was the writing of an autobiography as a part of their English course. The sophomores did much planning for their Sophomore Hop which was a highlight of the year, along with the ordering of their class rings. With their endless enthusiasm, class spirit soared high, and the sophomores ended the year with anticipation of the years ahead. Sophomores listen intently as Mr. Christoff discusses the problems of World War I.

The bewildering anticipation of the freshman year was heightened as the freshmen faced high school courses of study, clubs to join, and com¬ mittees to work on. As semester exams, stand¬ ardized test, " puella est bona, " and " 2x -f 4x " be¬ gan to clarify themselves, the freshmen lost some of their greenness. With the help of teachers, counselors, and upper classmen they soon ad¬ justed to high school life and gained joyment and satisfaction from their academic and social ac¬ complishments. They learned the routine of high school and how it differs from junior high and grade school Behind them they left the world of children and entered a whole new world called " young adult¬ hood. " The freshmen, no longer plebes, can look ahead to the rest of their high school career with confidence and assurance. 118 First Glimpse of High School Awes Frosh Ackley, Carrol Adames, Carmen Adkins, Richard Anderson, Brenda Anogianakis, Mary Arroyo, Eddie Azcooa, Art Babagan, Barb Bartosik, Bruce Batagianis, Harry Baumgartner, Charles Beeks, Earl Bennett, Ernestine Benjamin, Diana Benjamin, Gloria Bercaw, Edwin Bernal, Margarita Blackburn, Charles Bright, Mary Brown, Tom Bryant, Doris Buczek, Ken Butler, Ronnie Campbell, Brenda Campbell, James Campion, Deleen Casko, Danny Camery, Robert Canter, Shelby Carlock, Cynthia Carter, Shelba Castro, Carmen Cauchon, Irene Chalfant, Ron Chmiel, Judy Colon, Ed Colon, Chris Colosimo, Jennifer Cpniey, Ron Cox, Austin Cox, Charles Crawford, Carol Curley, John Cutri, Karen Daniels, Bobby 119 Ivanhoe , Equations and Day, Donna Deleon, Anthony DeJesus, Maria Deleon, Anthony Dipiazza, Barbara Docks, Clementine Domazet, Paul Donald, Daryl Donald, Larry Duffie, Loren Edwards, Janice Emig, Lloyd England, Darrelyn Enrico, Art Evans, Ann Evans, Bob Farley, Patricia Feezor, Barbara Flores, Homero Fowler, Lana Gacsy, Bill Galouzis, George Garrison, Bill George, Barbara Gillaspie, Ethele Gillaspie, Ray Gillum, Carol Gillum, Robert Gianikos, Sophie Goodman, Ann Gould, Duane Griffith, Bill Guydon, Anita Hackett, Debbie Hanko, Edward Helton, Linda Heridia, Manuel Hinchman, Judy Holman, Tom Holt, Angela Hope, Carolyn Howard, Mary Ellen Howard, Leroy Hudgins, Elizabeth Hutchinson, Wayne Ilic, John Insect 120 Collections Invade Freshman Studies Ison, Charles Jackson, Douglas Jackson, Patricia Jakovijevic, Gloria Jasperson, Judy Karan, Judy Karver, Richard Katsimpalis, Helen Kenneth, Wyman Klimis, Manuel Knowles, Elizabeth Kolodieg, Judy Kouremetis, Elena Kouremetis, Mike Krok, Carole Kupchik, Charles Larsen, Fred Lazelere, Linda Little, Peggy Long, David Lopez, Joe Lopez, Mercedes Lugo, Edwin Lumella, Cathy Malamalos, George AAarschand, Larry Massas, Maria Moxwell, Ronnie Mayes, Mary McCann, Susan McLoughlin, Bill Mihajlovic, Radmila Miller, Lennie Milisavljevic, Violet Milligan, Cleo Mitseff, Karen Moody, Randy Monik, Cecelia Moreno, Don Moreno, Donna Morphis, Carlene Mouchan, David Mouhourtis, Jimmy Muffoletto, Margo MuHoletto, Paul Mujica, Sergio Muzar, Mike 121 " Greenies” Enthusiastically Await New Term; Neal, Robert Newcomb, Gary Nunley, Cheryl Onika, Debby Panagiotos, Theodora Panuzzo, Pete Papacaloducas, Ciovana Parker, Fayette Pasiemiak, Felicia Pauik, Lindsay Pavlecich, Martha Petalis, Christine Pierce, George Pinkstaff, Janice Poole, Randall Popa, Rodney Pritchett, Norman Rankin, Herb Repya, Joanne Rivera, Elsa Rivera, Margaret Rivera, Rosemary Rivera, Thaiia Rockwell, Ron Rodriquez, Donald Rodriquez, Maria Rogers, John Ross, John Rosser, Gary Rowe, Robert Rushing, Ronnie Russi, David Rzepcznski, Danny Schafer, John Shaffer, George Schaffer, Sharon Schiess, Terry Schneider, Joyce Sebastian, Nancy Senovic, Steve Serrano, Gloria Simio, Bruce Smith, Art Smith, Betty Smith, Billy Smith, Donna Smith, Helen Sobh, Alex 122 Look to Future as Upperclassmen Stinson, Allen Stone, Sandy Sulcer, Terry Tallant, Richard Tesanovich, ' Mary Thompson, Alan Tichansky, Allan Tichansky, Cynthia Tolson, Jane Tonis, Mary Tripp, Joyce Tsakyris, Suzanne Vajner, Pam Valdivia, Joy Valdivia, Rich Vasques, Paula Veeck, Steve Vega, Basilic Vela, Tony Vensel, Doug Vulinovich, Roddy Waggoner, Nancy Ward, Gloria Wardrop, Carolyn Waugaman, Roberta Wellman, Dan Wetzel, Lome Wharton, Sue Williams, Alicia Williams, Connie Ypsilantes, Faye Zaganas, Steve Zapp, Diana Zarakas, Joyce Zaronis, Lydia Zeigra, Charles Zeimis, Janice 123 12. 39, 42. 88 88 88 52, 5.5. 66, 6. 7. 8. iK-ri .52, 88 88 26. 46. 59. 55. 66. 89 Flournoy.

The staff of the 1964 Emersonian would like to thank everyone who helped make this annual possible. I, per¬ sonally, would like to thank Mr. Robert Lewis of Sterling- Coner Studios for his help in taking necessary photographs; Tony Medina for serving as staff photographer; Rena Pappas for her art work; the United Press International for the use of the presidential page photo,- and the Journalism I class for displaying their excellent salesmanship in soliciting advertisements. I also would like to thank the entire faculty and students for their cooperation in helping the staff with pictures, in identifying people, posing for pictures, etc., etc. The story of the year 1964 is coming to a close. It has been a year like no other year. It will live again in the minds and memories of Emersonians for years to come.

Our (ScAoo Gary ' s merchants displayed their appreciation to Em¬ erson students by placing advertisements in this annual. Their patronage played an important role in permitting the staff to enlarge this book. For this, sincere thanks are given. Students learn during high school the value of learning how to shop and develop habits for later life. The merchants shown in this yearbook are aware of this fact and welcome the patronage of students. Together the student and the merchant develop a beneficial re¬ lationship. The merchant is helped because of the fact that the student will some day patronize the merchants he knows and trusts. It is beneficial to the student be¬ cause he will gain experience and knowledge which will be helpful in the future. The staff of the 1964 Emersonian would like to thank this year ' s advertisers for their support. The staff invites you to join us as we review those merchants loyal to Emerson, Our School. 5 amburgers " If Lowe ' s can ' t fix it, nobody can!
