Habits Varied for Studying I hope I get one answer right. 28 Such deep concentration! Humanities Literature Lends to Living Through Language Humanities depict man’s history of struggling to create. One aspect of this love of beauty stems from the written and spoken word. Great oratories, dramas, and literature of past and present offer a richer store of knowledge than all the average experiences of a lifetime. Mrs. Pierce reflects on the day’s assignments. Taking advantage of library facilities promotes a wider interest in all phases of the humanities. Humanities Ages and Phases of Society Reviewed Instructing students in social studies are, STANDING, R. Glazier, R. Wells, T. Campbell, R. Black, C. Christoff. SEATED are W. Fitch, H. Conway, H. Grieger, H. Henry, and S. Parfenoff. To understand this culture and civiliza¬ tion is to unveil the past. It is necessary to study the past in order to make the future better. Students must learn all about themselves physically and mentally since studying history is studying man and his behavior. . . . and if 1 am elected President . Humanities Shrink Universe Through Foreign Fluency Communication is the key that unlocks the doors of the world. Barriers are broken even more as the modern methods of teaching enable students to familiarize themselves with other lands’ customs, and roles as leaders in our world. Atmosphere, one of alert and attentiveness, is the must for any math class. New accelerated forms of the standard figuring have been introduced into this spaceage spectrum as revolutionary ideas are ever growing. Applied and practical forms of math are also holding their places in the world of business and prove to equally as challenging. Math Sharpens Minds Mathematics Department: STAND¬ ING, L. Lewis, C. Smith, R. Phillips, Blum. SITTING, H. Jones, E. Watson, M. Gorney, T. Hildreth. 37 Humanities Science Sparks Science instructors include P. Ryals, H. Thornton, M. Hunter, and D. Boggs. T Enthusiasm in Experimenting Encouraging students to observe and experiment is the prime aim of science. Curiosity is instilled within students eager to understand the physical aspects of their environment. Science attempts to answer such questions by proving that theorums are right or wrong. Humanities Fine Arts Tend A combination of many skills and instruments provides an effective composition. Voices of A Cappella members blend in harmony. Enjoying the tone qualities of the piano are the music department instructors R. Velasco, B. Nichols, and A. Masters. Admiring the backdrop are the faculty members of the art depart J Whitesell, B. Jayne, A. Gattling, and], Holubes. The ability to perform well in the area of Fine Arts is usually epitomized as a cultural achievement. But this field also gives students the opportunity to develop their musical or artistic creations and compare them to famous works or to those of their peers. Through these specialization courses, each student learns to blend his individual style with other students to perfect a smoothly flowing composition. to Test Talent Business Commercial . . .

Through this program many services to the school were rendered and many permanent jobs obtained. The clerical skills offered to Emersonians were well taken advantage of to benefit the community. “ Whee! Ifinally learned to operate the mimeograph machine. ” 42 Practices Aid Students Miss B.

Industrial Arts advisors E. Spiece, V. Aurit, and D. Lebegue check accuracy ojthe blueprints. Fireproofing and constructing stands for Emerson’s Christmas trees was done in woodshop. Home Economics Modem appliances are definite assets in the cooking classes. The family is the basic unit in society. Em¬ erson girls learned the importance of keeping the family a unit as they experienced in the home eco¬ nomics program that efficiency is the key to a smoothly run household. Proficiency in sewing, cooking, and home nursing; compassion in modern living . . . traits ac¬ quired to encourage a higher standard of living. Physical Education i Brains and Brawn Combined for Fitness Exerting the body takes more than physical endurance; mental stability is the “making or breaking point” for an athlete. Working as a team stressed the importance of sportsmanship and co-operation—whether it was tossing rifles at a drill or dribbling in for a lay-up. Throughout life, the principles and ideals behind the philosophy of physical education will strengthen the individual. Concentration is vital to the completion of a tumbling stunt.

ORGANIZE TIONS Attending, Contributing, Belonging; An Opportunity to Seek Identity In Any Group—for Any Creed They Lead the Way Their Burning Torch signifies the Student Council’s job as a guiding beacon to show the students at Emerson the right path to follow. The Student Council serves as the students’ legislative body. Under the leadership of Mr. Christ Christoff, the council met every Monday during the fifth hour to discuss such issues as fire drill procedure and school bus behavior. The Christmas Basket Drive, the S.O.S. Drive, the Gold and Gray Gathering, Senior Day and “E” Day are school functions that are sponsored by the Student Council.

Three seniors and three juniors from each of the nine Gary high schools met throughout the year to try to solve a few of the pressing problems of the world. The students for this program were selected on the basis of interest and academic achievement in the field of social studies. Two weeks in traffic school, a $5 fine, and a suspended license for two weeks, are some of the suggestions offered by the junior jurors in Judge Kaplan’s court. Six seniors from each Gary high school were chosen to participate in the junior juror program. They were allowed to sit on tht bench with Judge Kaplan and observe court procedure; then advise verdicts for minor traffic violations. The purpose of the program is to aquaint the students with the functions of the court. JUNIOR JURORS— SEATED, Tom Tersteniak, Judy Patrick.

And So Sharp Long formals and dark suits were the attire of the members of the orchestra at the orchestra concert in December. The swelling chords of the organ was something new added to the concert as Dan Wellman, junior, played an organ solo, “Concerto in “F” by Handel. A little spice was added to the concert as the orchestra played “Trocadero”, a tango by Isaac. The members of orchestra participate actively in the orchestra’s activities.

But leaving “Old Emerson” Brings reluctant sighs. The time went fast— It was a great year. We really hope they’ll Remember us here. We recall the times That we cut up in class. How lucky we are That most of us passed. The world waits for us, We’ll all goon. For we must do well By “Our Emerson.” 112 113 The Prom was grand; We danced ’til dawn. Slaved on papers, And got them done. Can’t quit now, We must go on! Time goes fast, Soon we’ll begone! Colleges chosen, Careers planned, Aren’t we great? Give us a hand! We fought the Wars By reading nights. Conquered SCAT With all our might. t fl £ f r t I £ p £ I fi Ackley, C.; Adames, C.; Adames, E.; Anderson, B.; Ar¬ mour, H.; Austin, J.; Azcona, A.; Baker, B.

Direction and Dedication; Principals Administer Affairs Despite conferences, handling technicalities, attending city-wide meetings, checking on disciplinary actions, the leaders of Emerson never refuse an opportunity to address the student body and engage in extra¬ curricular activities.

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. c (hudkin eelUr TAKE - HOME OPEN 11 TO 11 Industrious people use saws from Aetna Hardware 1012 Aetna Street Glen Park • 887-2931 3936 Broadway Miller • 938-5599 5729 Melton Road West Fifth • 949-7122 3650 West Fifth Avenue Valparaiso • 462-7242 709 Calumet Street Hobart • 942-1570 405 Main Street Crown Point • 663-0878 301 South Main Street GLEN VANTREASE " No man ever wetted clay and then left it as there would be bricks by chance and fortune.

Many decisions were made by the staffs who diligently prepared the newspaper and year¬ book. Norse Wind reporters were con¬ fronted with a new sponsor, change of type-face, and layout style. The yearbook staff also supported a new sponsor as well as a change in publishing companies. Norse Wind sponsor R. Woehler, left, and Emersonian sponsor J.
