■ emersonian 1965 emerson high school gary, indiana volume LIV I 1965—a year to rememoer . . . from that very first September day until the final day in June we labored, learned, and laughed together, the term ended, but we knew, that this would be a year to remember. we became freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors with anticipation, a beginning for some, an end for others, challenges met, we forged ahead. preoccupied with the future we forgot the past. then, with one final glimpse, we paused and remembered . . . . the guiding hand of a teacher they taught us with understanding and encouragement, making Shakespeare ' s sonnets, Bach ' s symphonies, or Avagadro ' s number easier to grasp, they gave us the education we now possess. in class, we gained the knowledge we lacked, the practice we needed, and the skill we desired, unconsciously, our world enlarged and our experience widened. take a teacher, a class, and remember their aims— to produce a brilliant scientist, an informed citizen, a mature, well-rounded individual—a person, who will one day show others the same understanding. 7 administrators promote active interest Board of School Trustees — . to r: Dr. James F. Wygant, Mrs. Dena S. Adams, Mr. Andrew D. White, Dr. Alfonso D. Holliday II, Mr. John F. Gutowski. Dr. Lee R. Gilbert, Superintendent of the Gary School System. in school affairs Mr. Marion B. England, principal, and Mr. John H. Smith, assistant principal were two of the busiest men at Emerson; yet they never became too busy to pay special attention to each student. They were always willing to speak individually with any parent, student, or teacher who wished an inter¬ view. But their responsibilities were not limited to ad¬ ministrative duties. Games, dances, club induc¬ tions, and banquets were included in the admin¬ istrative activities. Taking an interest in all Gary Public Schools and the students who attended them, the Gary School Board worked year round to improve our educational system. Mr. John H. Smith, assistant principal, prepares to face a day of blue slips, office chats, and parent interviews. Mr. Marion B. England, principal, begins his school day after battling the morning traffic. IM staffs’ services help students. Miss Julia Baran, Mr. Richard Pearce, and Miss Maxine Thomas, counselors, busily prepare the senior rankings. % After school is dismissed for the day, Mr. Dennis Gately begins his regular evening custodial duties. Miss Alice Conyers, school nurse, demonstrates first aid to her “patient” Jane O’Brien, senior. Behind the scenes of any smoothly-run school are the people who work to make it that way. Em¬ erson has many such people who worked hand-in hand toward the welfare of its students and teach¬ ers. Among these people were the office staff who kept our school records in order. When students had problems or questions, the counselling staff was always ready to lend a hand. The nurse strived to keep students in good health, and the cafeteria staff made sure they maintained this health by preparing well-balanced meals each day. Working long into the evening, the custodians kept our school clean. Mrs. Irene Lahaie, school guard, looked after the safety of students going to and returning from school. Checking the authenticity of absence excuses was the job of Miss Mary Lou Coulter, home visitor. teachers reach year’s goals Cafeteria staff — . to r: Mrs. Rosebud Towshend, Mrs. Helen Hall, Mrs. Margaret Stutesman, Mrs. Mary Miklos, Mrs. Frances Tich- ansky, Mrs. Ruby Bassett, and Mrs. Ollie Robinson relax afte r the hectic lunch hours. Miss Mary Lou Coulter, home visitor, investigates the absence of a student. Office staff—l. to r: Miss Maureen Link, Mrs. Frances Medina, Mrs. Sylvia Frances, Mrs. Mary Calloway, Miss Georgia Slavo, and Miss Anna Marcikic begin their work for another day. Weathering the wintery cold, Mrs. Irene Lahaie, Emerson’s patrol guard, helps children returning from lunch. english key to mastery “Vocabulary lessons due tomorrow” . . . “com¬ position assignment for Friday” . . . “outside reading book next week” . . . these were familiar worries for all English students. While gram¬ mar was an important phase of the total pro¬ gram, literature was the major area of study. Freshmen met Charles Dickens through the eyes of Philip Pirrip in Great Expectations. Sophomores learned a lesson in leadership from Shakespeare’s great tragedy, Julius Caesar. Shakespeare was studied on a more advanced level by seniors, who read his more complex tragedies, Hamlet, Macbeth, and, in advanced literature, King Lear. Besides reading and analyzing Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, juniors spent long evenings at the library preparing their term papers. Helping to make this year a rewarding ex¬ perience for E.H.S. students were Mrs. Mable Bianchi, Miss Diana Blue, Mr. Robert Glazier, and Mr. Steve Parfenoff, new English staff mem¬ bers. Mr. Fred Jones (inset) and Mrs. Helen Conway, special educa¬ tion teachers, work with students on the day’s assignment. of language skills Mrs. Irma Plum, librarian, emphasizes the importance of Book Week to students working in the library. English Department members, seated l. to r: Mrs. Gladys Pierce, Miss Roma Anderson, Miss Mabel Bianchi, and Mrs. Arlene Von Horn. Standing: Mrs. Catherine Greenwald, Mr. Robert Glazier, Mrs. Gertrude Palmer, Miss Diana Blue, and Mr. Steve Parfenoff. Working diligently, Linda Jablonski prepares pictures for a yearbook deadline. language, journalism From fall to spring . . . ttto ' to three hours a day . . . seven days a week . . . vacations . . . holidays . . . weekends . . . this was what it took to produce the Emersonian. With an increased number of yearbook pages to fill, this year’s staff worked e xceptionally hard on a project requiring time, effort, and cooperation. Only after the final page was sent to the printer, the last line of copy written, and the last picture selected, did the staff know their job was completed. Even after the yearbook staff had met their last deadline, the Norse Wind staff had not quite closed their ’64-’65 news files. “Seniors Judge Juveniles” . . . “Convicts visit Emerson School” . . . “Vespers Feature Madrigal Group” ... were among the stories covered by the Norse Wind staff. Following the old tradition of burning the night oil, students worked long into the evening before a next-day issue. Headed by Angeline Korfias, editor, the twenty-two member crew managed to meet the weekly deadline. “If she’d only move her hand, I could see that answer.” exercise oral, written skills Mr. Lawrence DeLeurere tells Miss Veronica Gurauskas and Miss Mary Ban, language instructors, of the success of his recent Latin Club picnic. French students drill through pronunciation lessons in the language lab. In today’s modern world, countries are closer neighbors than ever before. It is essential that we, as good neighbors, are able to communicate with these countries. Helping to achieve this goal, E.H.S. offered courses in three languages to interested students. Two of these languages, French and Spanish, shared the modern facilities of the language lab. The third, Latin, is no longer a spoken language but is still helpful in understanding the English language since many words are of Latin deriva¬ tion. Many French and Latin students participated in language contests held throughout the year. Sophomore Violet Milisavljevic attempts to “smooth out” her French pronunciation in the language lab. Social Studies teachers l. to r: Mr. Christ Christoff, Mr. Jerome Zeidman, Miss Hazel Grieger, Mr. Richard Wells, and Mr. Daniel McDevitt. history is a guideline for the future Man has progressed a long way since swords, plowshares, and spears. He now has more ad¬ vanced weapons, and there is no longer a threat of war between two nations but between a whole world of nations. In the complex times of today it is necessary that every one knows and un¬ derstands what is happening around him, but before he can begin to understand he must know what has happened in the past. As a basis to begin this study, world history dealt with the civilizations of all countries from the time of primitive man until today. U.S. history gave students a look at the history of the United States from the time of colonization until modern day America. Dealing with the problems that arise today, government and economics gave stu¬ dents an understanding of the operation of today’s government and economic systems. . and then after I v math, science promote student interest Mrs. Margaret Lane looks on as her math students solve problems from the board. Math students Lorraine Forbes and Cleo Milligan, freshmen, attempt to solve a tough algebra problem. Math teachers l. to r.: Mr. Charles Smith, Mr. H. A. Wil¬ kinson, Mrs. Margaret Lane, Mr. Harold Jones, Miss Mildred Gorney, Mr. Sargon Eivaz, and Mr. Richard Lins. in future careers Bio-physics gave students a general outlook into the study of biological and physical science. Plant diagrams, insect collections, and animal classifi¬ cations were familiar biology projects. Advanced biology was a new course introduced to help bridge the gap between general biology and college bi¬ ology. Working with test tubes and formulas, chemistry students learned the technique of per¬ forming lab experiments. The basic principles of friction, motion, and force in physics made stu¬ dents aware of the laws of nature present around them. In the field of mathematics, general math, ap¬ plied math, and senior math were courses dealing in basic arithmetic. Students of Algebra I and Al¬ gebra II learned a new approach to solving math problems by using symbols instead of numbers. Postulates and theorems caused puzzling prob¬ lems for plane geometry students. The more in¬ terested students took trigonometry. Kathy Koutsis, junior, completes a bio-physics lesson by viewing the parts of a grasshopper through a microscope. After seeing a movie on the principles of friction, physics students discuss their notes. Mr. Daryl Boggs demonstrates a new experi¬ ment to his attentive colleagues, Mr. Norman Koerwitz, Mrs. Mary Hunter, and Mr. Phil Ryals, science teachers. photography, industrial arts important After receiving his assignment, Ron Bartley, senior, prepares a lathe project. Mr. Val Aurit, drafting instructor, seems pleased with a stu¬ dent’s completed assignment. Mr. Earl Spiece demonstrates the use of a drill press to his machine shop class. to student vocations Bruce Timberman, senior, adjusts the lens before en¬ larging several photographs. Preparing students for positions as architects, carpenters, photographers, and machinists was the purpose of courses in industrial arts and pho¬ tography. Under the classification of industrial arts were machine shop and drafting. Machine shop offered students the chance to become acquainted with the operation of such machines as the drill press and the lathe. Drafting taught students the basic fundamentals of drawing blueprints. Students de¬ veloped building, house, and landscape designs. Photography courses not only instructed stu¬ dents on how to take pictures, but also on how to develop, enlarge, and reprint them. Another aspect to the Photography Department, the audio-visual class, taught students the operation of projectors and filmstrips. Bruce learns to operate a movie projector as part of his audio-visual class training. Mr. John Holubes demonstrates proper photographic pro¬ cedure to his photography class. music, commercial Shining gold robes . . . stately band uniforms ... pretty girls in formals, handsome boys in suits . . . lovely choral voices . . . huge base drums . . . tiny percussion instruments blending harmo¬ niously . . . crowded auditorium ... an absorbed audience . . . these were the sights and sounds of a musical concert whether it be orchestra, band or vocal. The traditional Christmas Vespers fea¬ tured the combined efforts of the A Cappella Choir, the Girls’ Glee Club, and the Orchestra. When the December snows gave way to the spring rains and flowers, young and old filled the school auditorium for the annual concerts of the Band, Orchestra, and Vocal Departments. A more academic area of the musical depart¬ ment was theory and harmony, a course required for students wishing to major in music. In this, students learned basically how to compose music Miss Judith Nichols and Mr. Robert Velasco, new staff meipbers, were introduced to the Music Department this year. Wayne Key, senior, finds time to practice be¬ fore the Regional Band Contest. Relaxing after a day of teaching others to appreciate music are Mr. Robert Velasco, Mrs. Anne Masters, and Miss Judith Nichols, music instructors. skills strengthen mind and talent Upon hearing the signal to start, Typing II begins a five-minute timed writing. General business students prepare for a coming test covering the basic techniques of personal and family budgeting. Serving as an introduction to all business courses, general business gave students a broad look at the various phases of the business world. A more specific course, bookkeeping, trained students in the fundamentals of keeping accurate records of business transactions. Business law, offered for the first time at Emerson and taught by Mr. Ralph Woehler, instructed students in the basic state and federal laws pertaining to business. For those students who were inclined to secre¬ tarial work, courses in typing and shorthand were a must. Teaching typing were Mrs. Lola Clune, a new faculty member, and Miss Bernice Beeler. Switching from the classroom scene to a business scene, distributive education gave students the ex¬ perience of working in such Gary stores as Sears Roebuck Co., Newberry, and W. T. Grant. Brushing up on their typing skills are l. to r: Mr. Ralph Woehler, Miss Bernice Beeler, and Mr. Floyd McKibben, commercial teachers. Timing them is Mrs. Lola Clune. students develop Students add a touch of Christmas spirit to their daily class work. Quality artwork is an important part of Emerson’s art program as stressed by Miss Lucille Solich, instructor. Freshman Lydia Zaronis prepares an exhibit of artificial flowers to be displayed during National Education Week. 24 - talents through creative arts program Shiny bronze pots, round cake pans, oddly- shaped bandages, various colored threads—these were tools of the trade for students enrolled in home economics or art courses. The home economics courses attempted to in¬ struct girls in how to become efficient homemakers. In clothing the girls began by learning the basic steps of sewing, such as cutting and pinning pat¬ terns. By the end of the year, dresses, jumpers, and blouses were popular sewing projects. Cooking taught them the importance of a well-balanced diet and how to prepare difficult but appetizing dishes. In home nursing, girls lea rned basic first aid and infant care. Modern living was a course in which marriage problems were analyzed and solved. Appealing to the interest of both sexes, art of¬ fered students who had artistic ability the chance to develop this talent. Among other things, they learned how to design, letter, and paint signs and posters. Posters were often seen displayed in the halls, and many were entered in such contests as Fire Prevention Week and Gordon’s Fashion Contest. Mrs. Bertha Jessee displays some of the garments completed by her sewing class to Mrs. Bessie Braggs (left) and Mrs. Iris Martinsen (right). All are home economics teachers. Sewing class gives Carolyn Richardson, junior, the oppor¬ tunity to add a new blouse to her wardrobe. Kathy Groover, freshman, tests her skill in preparing tapioca pudding as part of her foods class lesson. students learn sportsmanship, physical skills in p.e. class Exercising, tumbling, calisthenics, sports, swim¬ ming, these make up the curriculum of a typical gym class. Beginning and ending the cycle of sports was baseball. This soon gave way to a more vig¬ orous form of exercise resulting in speedball for the girls and football for the boys. When it be¬ came necessary to hibernate for the winter, bas¬ ketball was the first indoor sport. With it com¬ pleted, everyone tried his hand at tumbling. Soon replacing the tumbling mats were the volleyball nets. Between these other sports, the classes found time for a weekly dip into the pool. Strong minds as well as strong bodies were the prime objectives of the physical education pro¬ gram. Therefore, as much emphasis was placed on good sportsmanship as on good playing ability. Sharing the girls’ lower gym with Mrs. Helen Mosier this year was Mrs. Marcia Dokas, a new faculty member. Swimmers prepare for practice in the backstroke during a swim session. Students begin their gym hour by limbering up before a game of basketball. 27 28 . . the lasting bonds of a friendship the names were unknown, the faces unfamiliar, they sat behind us, walked near us. soon, the names became known, the faces familiar, mere acquaintances became friends. before long, the names became synonymous with loyalty, comfort, laughter, good times as well as bad were shared. . . . the bond was formed. we may forget a gay party, a game with its overtime and victory, a night out with " the gang, " but never a friendship. 29 future goals set pace for seniors After finishing four years of high school, sen¬ iors will further their education, enter the world of business or perhaps look for a career in the Armed Forces. No matter what occupation they pick they will always remember their high school days at Emerson. Reminiscing, they will remember their first foot¬ ball game, their Freshman Frolic, the Sophomore Hop, and their first Prom. They will realize that all the work they had to do such as writing term papers, working algebra problems or just doing everyday homework was not really as bad as they thought it was. Certain people such as Angeline Korfias, vale¬ dictorian, and Pat Christo, salutatorian, will al¬ ways stand out in their minds as being outstand¬ ing academically. Seniors will have many things to remember from their high school days especially the thrill and ex¬ citement of Class Day, Baccalaureate and Com¬ mencement, which marked the beginning of a new way of life.

Daily walks to the library, long hours at the typewriter, and burning the night oil en¬ abled them to earn their 13 credits to become seniors. Thinking seriously about their future, they consulted with counselors about colleges and vocations in the business world. “Would you rather cook a meal, mend a bro¬ ken toy, or give someone a shampoo?” This was just one of the many questions juniors were faced with on the Kuder test. Other tests that were taken were the National Merit, SCAT, and PSAT. Though there was plenty of work to do, juniors still found time to have fun. At the an¬ nual PTA Fun Festival, the junior girls put on a skit for Spice and Variety called “Kids.” The long-anticipated events were the announcing of the 1965-66 G.A.A.

Writing autobiographies and memorizing lines from Julius Caesar were major class assignments. As the year progressed, the sophs began to realize the importance of studying and getting good grades. While attending football games, school dances, or just walking the school halls, they began to lose that feeling of being strangers. The faces weren’t so strange now, and the other students seemed friend¬ lier. The sophomores now look forward to their last two years with anticipation of receiving class rings and attending the Junior and Senior Prom.

They participated in school,functions and awaited the Freshman Frolic. A Friday night dance, a pizza at the Flamingo, a bus ride to Gilroy, and butterfly nets were a part of the freshman “initiation.” As the year progressed, the novelty wore off, work became more difficult, and assignments seemed longer. The hubbub of high school life became a routine. Gaylene Smith Nada Peyovich, and Janet Ershick perform for their GAA rushers during bcum Week initiation.

Composed of one president and two representa¬ tives from each class, and a representative from each organization, Student Council, under the guid¬ ance of Mr. Dan McDevitt, met during the lunch period to create rules and regulations to govern the school. Besides being the legislative body of the school, the Student Council planned the Christ¬ mas Basket Drive in December and the S.O.S. Drive in February. They also directed Senior Day and “E” Day activities. 70 “I pledge myself to uphold the high purposes of this society to which I have been elected, striving in every way, by word and deed, to make its ideals of my school and my life.” Students, outstanding in scholarship, leadership, character, and service, were elected into the Emer¬ son Chapter of the National Honor Society during the fall and spring of the school year. They took the society pledge at the April induction with a candlelight ceremony and invited students and parents. During the course of the year, the Honor Society sold paperback books to students and faculty in an effort to raise money for their annual spring picnic at Marquette Park.

Six Emerson students, meeting with other stu¬ dents from area schools, took advanced courses in psychology, political science, chemistry, and math as participants in the Joe Berg program. These students were selected on the basis of test scores and recommendations. Another scholastic achievement by Emerson stu¬ dents was membership in Quill and Scroll, an in¬ ternational honorary society for high school jour¬ nalists. To become members, student journalists per¬ formed superior work in some phase of journalism and were recommended by a supervisor of publi¬ cations. Pursuing answers to world problems, World Affairs Forum members met each month to dis¬ cuss world issues. Every year, three juniors and three seniors are selected from each of Gary’s nine high schools to participate in the forum. Schools rotated as discussion leaders at each month’s ses¬ sion. In May, Emerson led the discussion on Ma¬ laysia and Indonesia. In December, Debate Club members were given an opportunity to exercise debate techniques at the National Debaters Conference at Purdue University.

Occupatus, occupatus, occupatus —busy, busy, busy —could have been the slogan for this year’s Latin Club, sponsored by Mr. Lawrence DeLeurere; if members weren’t hiking at Dunes State Park, they were participating in a pantomime skit at the Edison conference or in a lecture at I.U. Northwest Exten¬ sion. “Miss Ban, would you please pass the hot sauce for my tacos?” was a probable statement made when fourteen Spanish Club members and Miss Mary Ban, sponsor, dined at an Indiana Harbor restaurant that specialized in Mexican food. In April, the Spanish Club spo nsored the Spanish Fiesta. Wearing berets and smocks while carrying easels and brushes, both new and old Art Club members for the first time dressed as artists during the Art Club initiation. Two field trips—one to the Art Institute and another to the Oriental Art Institute —acquainted students with prominent artists.

Throughout the year, members participated in outdoor and indoor sports, earning points to main¬ tain a good standing in the organization. Extra points were earned through bike and walking hikes and by popping popcorn at the football and bas¬ ketball games. In December, the girls and their guests attend¬ ed the annual Couple Dance, “Candleglow and Mistletoe,” held at the Sheraton Inn. Ron Benjamin was named G.A.A. Pin-Up Boy at the Basketball Spread in March. The other can¬ didates were John Prascak and Larry Klim. The G.A.A.

Cooking meals, typing letters, tutoring stu¬ dents, and serving the public were the activities of Emerson’s career organizations that developed students for their desired occupations. Students interested in domestic duties joined the Future Homemakers of America. This year, under the direction of Mrs. Iris Martinsen, mem¬ bers reorganized the club and revised the consti¬ tution. Twelve members of the Future Business Lead¬ ers of America experienced daily routine work at either a business, institution, or hospital on Career Day. Five members of the Future Teachers of Ameri¬ ca tutored students at the Dorie Miller Housing Project. During Education Week, members of F.T.A. served as hostesses to visiting parents and guests.

Drum major Perry Ann Heads high and in s{ep, drum majors and major¬ ettes led the school band while they marched to “Emerson Loyalty.” This year’s band was fortunate to have two drum majors to share the load. Booster Committee, sponsored by Mrs. Leora Davies, helped boost team spirit and succeeded this year in getting a little male backing in the cheering section. But if they weren’t stirring school spirit, they were organizing the Homecoming, the Senior Personalities’ voting, or the Senior Farewell at the end of the year. The Social Committee, sponsored by Mrs. Shirley Simonson, provided a semi-formal night of dancing for Emersonians and their dates at the Snow Ball in January. This committee is also responsible for providing records for school dances. Vibrating every beam with jazz numbers and dance tunes, the Dance Band met every Wednesday after school to practice, either for enjoyment or preparation. In January, they took part in the Regional Solo and Ensemble Contest and provided music at the Senior Farewell in May. Drum major Bill Velasquez music and cheers set the pace Majorettes — l. to r: L.

Marching on the football field and down the streets surrounding Emerson, the band practiced after school and in the evenings to perfect their performances for Homecoming, Purdue Band Day, and for the Memorial Day Parade. When they were confined to the band room during the colder months, they worked a little harder as members of duets, trios, and quartets for the District Music Contest in Jan¬ uary. In March, they performed for the student body at their annual Band Concert. “Go Emerson go, we’re all for you,” roared from the auditorium doors as students and the Pep Band took part in weekly pep sessions. Accompanying the football team and students, they provided moral support with their peppy marches and lively rendi¬ tions of school songs. Band Officers—Seated: Alexandra Vlassopoulos, librarian.

Featured were numbers by Bach, Bizat, Tschaikowsky, and Gounod. Under the direction of Mrs. Anne K. Masters and Mr. Robert Velasco, the orchestra also found time for the annual State Solo and Ensemble Contest, the City-Wide Music Festival, and Com¬ mencement activities. This year the String Ensemble set the mood at the Christmas Vespers by providing the traditional Christmas music. Three members of this group showed outstanding accomplishments this year. String players, Jacqueline Dodds and Mary Cress were selected to participate in the Chicago Youth Orchestra Concert which performed in Chicago’s Orchestra Hall.

Emerson’s A Cappella and Glee Club tuned up on many occasions to perform for the student body and out¬ side audiences. In November, during Education Week, A Cappella sang for the P.T.A.’s open house, as well as for other meetings. Sponsoring the “Har¬ vest Moon” dance in October, the group raised enough money to buy new choir robes. Combining their efforts with the Drama Department, the A Cap¬ pella and the Glee Club sang for the annual Christ¬ mas Vespers, presenting traditional Christmas carols such as “0 Holy Night” and “Hallelujah.” Both groups sang at their annual spring concert and participated in the City-wide Spring Festival. They finished the year by singing at Baccalaureate and Commencement. In addition to their roles as A Cappella mem¬ bers, ten students performed as a Madrigal group and met for practice sessions every morning. This newly-formed group was featured at the Christmas Vespers and participated in the State Music Festival in February. madrigals add Glee Club—Row 1 , . 88 i sere i !::?: Parrish, M. Dittmer, P.

Also taking a role in drama were “E” Club members, those boys earning a Varsity letter in any of the six major school sports. A comedy entitled “The Woman-Less Wedding” was pre¬ sented as an “E” Club production. Paul Coker portrayed Miss Tiny Oats who wed Mr. J. Filvver- ton, Barley, played by Roger Siler. A new addition to Emerson’s organizations was the Chess Club, sponsored by Mr. Sargon Eivaz.

Under the command of Sergeant Jack McNichols, the Reserve Officers Training Corps surged ahead again this year in performance. Emerson was named an R.O.T.C. honor school after an overall inspec¬ tion of the organization by General John Pugh of the 6th Army Headquarters in Chicago. An R.O.T.C. board of conduct was added to handle disciplinary action, which maintained the high cali¬ bre of the organization. During the year the Rifle Team was awarded second place in competition with Wallace and Tol- leston. In November, they defeated Joliet. For further rifle competition, they traveled to Culver Military Academy in Culver, Indiana, in February, and to Missouri in March. Out of a possible 300, the team averaged 229 for their shooting average. The Rifle Team won the city championship for 1964. The Drill Team competed in precision drills with the Gary high schools and Joliet High School. In April, they competed in Indianapolis, and a selected squad from the team went to Western Michigan University. The Drill Team also won the 1964 city competition.

Norse Wind staff members experienced the joy of a finished story that had to be rewritten and retyped many times and faced the frustration of an issue that failed after hours of work because of an unexpected problem that arose. Picture layouts, pressing deadlines, lack of copy information, and long hours that dulled the mind confronted the Emersonian staff members. Finally, the last deadline arrived and they sent off the last few pages to the Taylor Publishing Company. Then, with anticipation, they awaited the arrival of the book in May when they saw their year of work in finished form. Although these problems seemed overpowering, both staffs succeeded in meeting their responsibili¬ ties: informing the student body and recording the past year. EMERSONIAN STAFF Co-editors .

If not building sand castles near the water they were dancing near the concession stand. Of course, a few students spent all of their time eating potato chips, drinking cokes, and barbecuing hot dogs. Although summer vacation lasted only three short months, it appeared to be adequate time for Emerson students to relax for the coming nine months of school. “Hope I beat the mailman!” football-o-rama queen crowned “Oh!

Half-time ceremonies began with a motorcade of soon-to-be queens. Eight new queens were to be crowned, one representing each Gary high school. Four girls ran for the position of Football-O-Rama queen; juniors Carole Paul and Laurie Riley; and seniors Barbara Spurlock and Lynn Ward. Cheers roared as Lynn Ward was announced Emerson’s winner, with Carole Paul selected as runner-up. Football-O-Rama is the first of many ceremonies during the school year in which Emersonians crown a queen to represent their school. The crowning of queens seems to be a great part of the activities of a school.

Couple Dance in December was a semi-formal affair and was the only turn-about dance of the year. Other dance activities included the Sophomore Hop, the S.O.S. Dance, the Freshman Frolic, and the Junior-Senior Prom. Among the closing- dances- of the year were the Publications Dance and the Senior Farewell. For the first time this year, Emerson’s “E” Club sponsored lunch- hour sock hops as between-class activities. 103 Golden mums . . . enthusiastic cheers ... a glittering crown . . . long formats . . . proud escorts . . . hopeful candidates ... a tense crowd ... a reigning queen!!!

After the game, students, the new queen, and her court returned to Emerson to take part in the Home¬ coming Dance held in the girls’ lower gym. Gold and grey streamers, cardboard football players, color¬ ful murals, and scattered glitter greeted students as they arrived for an evening of soft lights, moody music, and friendly conversation.

Boosting the teams involved only half of their year. The other half consisted of practices, con¬ tests, and pep sessions. While at cheering camp this summer, varsity cheerleaders learned many new cheers which were later used at pep sessions and varsity events.

Emerson’s Golden Tornado finished the. 1964 sea¬ son with a record of 2-8-1, being plagued through¬ out the season by many injuries. In the initial contest of the season, the Tornado fought to a scoreless tie against Lew Wallace in the Football-O-Rama. Traveling to Highland, the Emer¬ son gridders defeated the Trojans Uy an 18-14 count. The Tornado then suffered consecutive losses to Hobart, Tolleston, Hammond Tech, Lew Wallace, Froebel, Horace Mann, and Roosevelt. The season ended on an upswing as the Tornado defeated Wirt, 20 - 0 . Senior end Steve Szabo received the high-scoring honors on the team by tallying 30 points.

After winning the city, conference, sectional, and regional championships, 165-pound wrestler, Ayres, placed second in the entire state in his class, while Popa placed first in the city, conference, sectional, and regional competition and placed third in the 145-pound class in the state meet. Alan Pinkstaff, heavyweight, had an outstanding 10-1-1 record in dual competition while much lighter teammate, Roger Siler, went undefeated in the dual meets. Because he was unable to unseat the wrestlers in the 154- and 145-pound divisions, senior Bill Pendleton lost 22 pounds to wrestle in the 133- pound division. “He had t o continually watch his weight and stayed in this class through shear de¬ termination and desire,” according to Coach Harry Szulborski. Gone from next year’s team will be seniors Byron Ayres, Jim Carter, Milton Hinchman, Mike Karls- rud, Bill Pendleton, Alan Pinkstaff, Roger Siler, and Richard Stafford. Coach Szulborski commented that next year’s team should prove to be very strong with re¬ turning wrestlers Paul Mather and Rusty Popa, juniors; and Jerry Stewart, freshman.

Some mothers can do it. A few chefs can be mentioned. But, the true " artists” of this profession are, amazingly enough, high school boys! Trained for months and months by Chuck Wheeler himself, these fortunate young men learn to turn out the tender, golden crusted, delicately-seasoned chicken in perfect batch after batch, around the clock from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week. Many of them earn college money in this manner. Constant dedication to the goal of perfect fried chicken is a wonderful character builder and a lesson in modern methods, combined with an old-fashioned appre¬ ciation of flavors and the human ingredient. When you enjoy Kentucky Fried Chicken from Chuck Wheeler’s, you know the tenderness, flavor, and perfection of each piece of chicken .is no accident. Chuck planned it that way.
