These changes made education more beneficial and the year more interesting. Emerson, Gary ' s oldest high school, was established in 1908. Through the years, EHS has witnessed many changes, but 1969 has found a blend¬ ing of tradition with exciting new methods and ideas to meet the needs of the school. You will notice changes in academics. Technical courses are now being offered from the new Technical Vocational School and there will be cover¬ age of this in the academic section. School life and organizations will re¬ main almost the same with the exception of people. You will notice a change in the people. More students are taking part in organizations and activities. Athletic teams, whether winners or losers, provide the bond known as school spirit. Emerson High School has been striving for improvement in many areas and 1969 shows evidence of great progress. MD OU ' I ! ' .. ”W- ? Activities . . . We Have The Answer! In Memorium Michael Coleman (1 3 51-1 3 69) Sunset and evening star. And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar. When I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam. When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell. And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness df fa rewell. When I embark; For tho ' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face. When I have crost the bar. Alfred Lord Tennyson Jody Acosta Julian Adames Lynne Adamson Irene Aguilar Vernita Aikens Wedell Allen Thank You for the Memories I have enjoyed all the sports at Emerson and have enjoyed being a part of the football and basketball teams. I liked the different pep sessions and all of my teachers. Aldean Miles Freshmen Frolics, Sophomore Hop, Junior-Senior Prom, class rings, G.A.A. Banquets, pep sessions, and caps and gowns, have made my years at Emerson joyous. Mary Gajewski The lunch hours with the boys and girls eating at separate times did nothing for my love life. Alice Magee Donald Armour Rosetta Askew Clarence Atwood 20 " Time " on Our Hands My right eye got cut during drill team practice. Donald Armour The most exciting thing that ever happened to me in my high school career was when I pulled away from an opposing runner to take third place in the two-mile relay at Hammond Clark. Gus Anton I became involved during my junior year. William Thames I hate making up time. It ' s a dumb rule. Peggy Miller Stella Batagianis 21 Highlite—EHS 62 THS 55 Lowlite—EHS 6 AHS 61 Danny Carpenter The most exciting happening in my high school days was the Tolles- ton game during my junior year. Everyone thought we didn ' t have a chance. But the team came out and played a controlled ball game. We won by about ten points. Sam Irons I found the rules at Emerson funny. While I was adjusting to them, I discovered they had a lot of tradition. Ellary Word Sherry Carter Albert Clark Gail Clark Kathy Clifton Doris Collins Charles Cornett Cynthia Cortez 22 Lydia Davis Skating Parties, Guys and Dolls, Mark Last Year. We had many good times, but one of the best was the Junior Class ' s skating party. Even though some of us didn ' t know how to skate, we managed to learn. Stella Batagiannis In years to come I will remember the enjoyable years I have spent at Emerson and the friends I made. After Emerson, I will encounter the road to the future, which looks tough, but I will use my edu¬ cation to overcome any obstacle. Gregory Serrano James Davis 23 David Echols Sandra England Pamela Epps John Essany Freddie Flack Cherolyn Ford Down The Up Staircase I will never forget the summer of ' 68 when two other girls and I drove Coach Sosh crazy in the drivers training car. Elizabeth Martinez I was accused unjustly of stealing five bucks. Lorraine Friley Erskine Nichols Mary Gajewski My role in Guys and Dolls will be memorable to me. Albert Clark Preparing for GAA ' s yearly banquet was fun. Regina Watson I think Emerson got tough when Mr. Hambrick came here. One can no longer cut classes without getting caught. Elena Azcona Mary Galindo James Galka 24 Robert Hartfield Can ' t Forget Scum Week When I was a junior, I decided to quit school, but I quickly realized the value of an education and stayed. Elizabeth Perez I truly look forward to the day of my commencement. Bessie Holloway Judy AcOSta First day in class, I was scared and backwards. Thomas Gillespie After graduation, I will miss my Emersonian friends. Mary Lee I will never forget the tradition of Scum Week. Bonita Spence Dennis Howard Sushela Ann Howard Emerson Years—Slow Starting, Quick Ending The memorable event that I will remember most is when I walk across the stage on graduation day to receive my diploma. Linnetta Bascum G.A.A., girls ' rifle team, the skating party, and my friends at the Vocational School, cheered my Emerson years. Willie Ann Hope Almost all my experiences and memories at Emerson have been pleasant and they are something I will always treasure. Sharon Rockwell Carolyn Kinsey Tim Klein George Knezevic Queenella Knight Beverly Lofton Mary Lee Roy Lee 26 Grace Lloyd George Logothetis Stephen Molys Drill Team Champions Rank High The greatest thing that happened to me in high school was capturing the State R.O.T.C. Drill Team Competition. Emerson has had the best drill team in the state for five years. Tim Boozer The most memorable thing I can remember is when we got time off from school because of the ' 67 snowstorm. Boy, we didn ' t come to school for two whole weeks! Rod Robbins Giving up my free time to work on the Emersonian nullified my so¬ cial life. Joe Martinez 27 John Newsom Bobby Noel Thomas Olivarez Wiftlynn Owens Edison Pabon Gloria Parker Edward Pate Feet Made for Dancing Thank you, counselors, for the helping hand. Irving Tipton I will never forget Emerson. I grew up in its enjoyable surrounding— enjoyable because Emerson provided everyone with opportunities. In my opinion Emerson is a wonderful school. Julian Adams The most memorable event of my high school years was when I went to the prom in my junior year. I totaled my car. Victor Otero Gloria Poole 28 Walter Scott Remember Mr. Dhar? During my three years at Emerson I had the time of my life. Coming from Pulaski, I was lost at Emerson, but in time I found myself. The best things happened to me when I began participating in Emerson activities. Lavinia Simington The most interesting experience that has happened to me in the last four years at Emerson was my meeting with a new teacher fresh from college. Her name is Miss Schultheis. Since then my life has never been the same. Ann Nita Brooks Gregory Serrano 29 Pass the Spirit Stick As the days seemingly grow longer and the studying harder, I felt myself irresistably drawn to the suggestion of skipping a few classes. Presently I am making up time. Julius Stuart Paula Tamez The mos t exciting thing happened to me in my junior year. I was a William Taylor high jumper in track. In meets before the Regional I had done what I considered a good job, never placing below second. When the Regional came around I competed against the area ' s best high jumpers. I started well. There were five jumpers left, and I was one of them. A boy and I were tied for fourth; only four can go down State. I beat my opponent by jumping 6 ' 2 " . It was the first time I earned a trip down State. Brian Dowdell Arthur Thames 30 Rita Wade Sherry Walker Ronald Wall Delcina Washington Regina Watson Sharon Watson Jerome Webster The Bugle Plays Taps Competing in the state finals of the long jump was the high light of my Emerson career. Elijah Baity The two most exciting things that have happened to me during my high school years were becoming an honorary cadet and a mem- Donna Whiting ber of Emerson ' s G.A.A. board. Whitlynn Owens The tradition of standing for the bugle is one that should never be discontinued. Diane Wilcher There Are Lots, and Lots, and Lots of Juniors Why are these boys happy?

We Have The Student Council provides cooperation between students and faculty, promotes all school activities, and operates on the will of the majority; providing at the same time a chance for the minority to be heard. These pupils are the backbone of our student body. World Affairs Forum is one of the best knowledge obtain¬ ing organizations in our city. Each high school has six repre¬ sentatives at the Forum assemblies. Scholarship, leader, character, and service are qualities that every member of the EHS Senior Honor Society possesses. The purpose of this society is to recognize students who excell mainly in scholarship.

English, the Backbone of Education English—The involved world of the language we speak is both a curse and a blessing to the stu¬ dents at Emerson. Term papers, poetry, gram¬ mar, and novels, are included in the complex assignments passed out by the numerous teach¬ ers of the English Department. It is not until the student recognizes the style and grace of his manner of speaking and writing that he ap¬ preciates the diligent efforts of his teachings and the reasons for his assignments. Geel It sure is fun working in English IVR. Huh. I sure hope he doesn ' t call on m 92 History—A look at the Past, Present, and Future Man ' s existence is traced back to the cradle of " Cradle of Civilization " between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers on the eastern end of the Medi¬ terranean Sea. World History follows him from the beginning through ancient Egypt, the Golden Age of Greece, and Anglo-Saxon England to the exploration of the New World. United States History continues through the colonization period, the Revolution, Civil War, the Presidents, and American issues and development until the present day. United States Government is a detailed study of our Federal, state, and local government. Here, too, the fundamentals of voting and political parties are taught. Community Civics centers on the function of municipal government. Man ' s financial difficulties such as budgeting, monopolies, and the farm problems are topics of Economics. World Geography acquaints students with the people of other lands. In this class one learns the living conditions, industries, governments, and geographical location of world neighbors. Science—Your science curriculum at Emerson is designed to give all students an insight into the basic principles upon which it is based. This is done by focusing attention on the methods of scientific investigation leading to the astound¬ ing success of modern science as well as pro¬ viding a sound knowledge of basic principles, theories, and concepts. It is emphasized that: (1.) Science is universal and the study of it will yield an understanding of the new worlds now within the grasps of man ; (2.) the study of science helps to the de¬ velopment of an objective attitude towards man and nature, and develops dispassionate approaches toward problems in a world of dilema; (3.) the study of science brings new knowledge—facts, figures, principles and laws basic to science; (4.) certain skills and experi¬ mentation be encouraged—so the students may discover for himself the wonderful world in which he lives. The science curriculum at Emerson can be compared to the words of Blaise Pascal, " Na¬ ture imitates herself: a grain thrown into good grounds brings forth fruit: a principle thrown into a good mind brings forth fruit. " It is with this in mind that the development of your sci¬ ence curriculum has become what it is today. The Role of Science Mr. Ryals explains how Tiny Tim knows so much about Tulips. and Math at Emerson Math—Emerson offers three tracks in math. Level I aims to prepare students for math they need in everyday life. Level II is geared to the college bound and technical students. Level III challenges the students of superior ability. In these courses, more topics are studied, and they are studied in greater depth. This year a new program was initiated in seventh, eighth and ninth grades. The aim of these programs is to make math more under¬ standable and interesting, thereby strengthen¬ ing students ability to use math. Emerson is one of the few schools in Gary using this new pro¬ gram in seventh and eight grades. (You can see Mr. Blum, Mr. Corrigan, or Miss Gorney for more details.) Several students are enrolled in an enrich¬ ment course for the mathematically talented at the University of Chicago. Doesn ' t that student look kind of old? Whot does the square of the hypotenuse times 2 the diameter plus the circumference equal to,—dumb dumb? 95 The Engrossing Study of Foreign Customs can be very interesting. Bonjour! Saludes! Salvete! Each student strains diligently to remember the translation drills. With the knowlege of a second lan¬ guage, one can accomplish many tasks for the government as well as in teaching and journalism. Spanish, French, and Latin; the three languages offered at Emerson are taught at 5 different levels. Along with the Latin I course, ancient his¬ tory is taught by Mr. Deleurere. Miss McGe- hee and Miss Ban work very hard teaching Spanish students, while Mrs. Waddlington and Mr. Deleurere introduces French to many others. Mr. Deleurere also takes full responsibility for all Latin classes. Deter¬ mined to do their best, Emerson students work hard to master the skills of accent, in¬ tonation, and speed. Do—Re—Mi. . . . The downbeat is given in five music classes at Emerson. Vocally, there are Acap- pella and Glee Clubs,- instrumentally. Band and Orchestra; intellectually. Theory and Harmony. The results of our music courses are extremely pleasant to the ear. The work is heard at various occasions throughout the year. In the vocal department Glee Club and Acappella can be heard at Christmas, carolling in the halls on the last day before Christmas vacation, or at the Spring Concert. The Band plays at football games. It has been called upon, too, by the city to play at certain civic affairs. Orchestra members play during intermission of school plays. Orchestra as well as the Band gives annual concerts. Theory and Harmony is required for stu¬ dents wishing to earn a major in music. In this class students are tutored on the tech¬ nique of writing music and the study of cords. 97 Mind and Body Work Hand in Hand in Physical Education They ' re getting ready for the test . . . With the ever increasing amount of leisure time, Americans must prepare themselves for recreational activities. Physical education not only strives to develop the body physically, socially, and emotionally, but also prepare the individual for leading a happier and healthier life. Through the use of games such as football, soccer, volley¬ ball, tennis, and other activities as wrestling, gymnastics and tumbling, the physical education teachers at Emerson High School do a very good job of fullfilling the objectives. 98 You Can Succeed in Business if You Try In the Commercial Education classes, which in¬ cludes typing, shorthand, business law, and cherical practice, students are trained and prepared for the fundamentals of an office aid, that can come in very handy after school days are left behind. The School City of Gary has offered many oppor¬ tunities for youths and adults at the Gary area Tech¬ nical-Vocational School in 1968-69. Next school year the program will be expanded further and in the future it will be evaluated and altered to keep abreast of technological change. The school offers an approach to education which may be new to many Gary people. We want you to understand what is being done and to work with us in the futher development of this important part of Gary ' s educational system. TV is a center for the development of skills and knowledge directed toward successful technical and vocational skills or careers. It serves individuals and works with management, labor, and professional people in identifying and meeting training needs in the community. Students learn commercial skills. W ould you believe the new Technical School? Art—A Vital Part of Education at E.H.S. The art and photography program at Emerson is structured to allow for the growth and development of skills, techniques and knowledge necessary to strengthen the quality and the amount of creative output of the stu¬ dents. Art experiences as a sequential area of learning must be continuous from the sixth grade into the junior high school, and progressively more challenging and involved in the transi¬ tion from the junior high school into the high school. Within the frame work of the func¬ tions at Emerson, art becomes a vital part of the education of all students. You see, it happened like this . . . 100 V 2 Cup + 1 Yard Future Homemaker In cooking classes our ladies are taught the im¬ portance of a basic diet and the various food values. Their culinary skill often begins from scratch, but they usually end the course with a fair ability to make many basic dishes. The kitchen is equipped with up- to-date appliances for the best results. In Clothing I and II and advanced Clothing the girls learn the basic steps of sewing. These include cutting out patterns, using the machines, hemming and altering, and the fine art of making button holes. 101 If the Books Are There, Use Them Librarians are never satisfied! We still say we do not have enough space for all the services we would like to render the faculty and stu¬ dents. But we do have more space in the workroom, more shelf space for books, more more chairs for students. And with them, we push on. Dog-gone it, everytime I come here somebody ' s got that book, " Sex And The Single Girl. " Instructors Strives for Perfection Special Education instructors work very diligently at Emerson. They have one of the most challenging tasks in the educational system today. Since they are teaching below average students, they must be clever, persistant, determined and efficent in guid¬ ing each student to his greatest potential. Special Education courses offered at Emerson are. Math, English, and Reading.

" " The roof fell in, the ship sank, the war was lost, but then the trouble started. " Emerson ' s Golden Tornadoes must have felt that way during the 1968 season which saw them win only one of nine games. The once proud tradition of champion¬ ship football at Emerson was tarnished somewhat by lack of participation, numerous injuries, and the simple fact that Emerson is a small school in comparison with most of the competion that we now face. Not everything was on the bleak side, however. Seniors, Darrell Bodie and Lee Lemon, were chosen to first and second teams, respectively, for All- Conference honors. An upset win over Froebel highlighted the season. Even more important, though, is the prospect of ten returning lettermen for next year ' s team which include some of the highest regarded underclassmen in the City. Seniors lost from this year ' s team include: Rodney Pace, Jimmy Brooks, Dave Echols, Alfredo Garza, Terry Kelly, Darrell Bodie, Elijah Baity, Ray Curtis, Aldean Miles, Roy Lee, Charles Jones, and Charlie Cornett, Mgr.

Broken bones, sprains, and pulled ligaments hurt the team ' s performance. The Norsemen started off well, winning two out of their first three games. However, they dropped the next three with a total of 169 pts. to the opponents ' 186 pts.

Following in the varsity ' s footsteps, they won 2 of their first 3 games. Next came Hammond Tech; they outscored the Norsemen by 23 pts. But the Norsemen bounced back to defeat Mann, Froebel, and Wallace. Success was short-lived when the team encountered E.C. Roosevelt. One out of the next 5 games brought success; the lone victory was a close contest with Gary-Wirt—54-50. A total of 250 pts. were accumulated in the remaining games against opponents ' 211 pts.
