As Morton students you have discovered that MHS offers something for everyone. The abilities of every student have found outlets here. As Morton has grown as a high school, it has further developed its curriculum and facilities to meet the growing needs. Along with this development, school activities have increased and school spirit has become stronger. Morton has recognized the need of pre¬ senting all the necessary requirements for a well-rounded high school career. At the same time, the need for each student to excel in a particular field is also recognized. Participating in activities and developing responsibility are encouraged at Morton. Through this book we are presenting those opportunities Morton offers. In these pages you will find that “there is some¬ thing for everyone at MHS.” ADVERTISING IS a major method of financing the publication of the TOP HAT. Jim Bline, ad salesman, explains the types of ads sold for the yearbook to a local businessman. PATRONS—PACE 136. PEOPLE ARE a school’s most important asset, and Mor¬ ton is no exception to this rule. Students, teachers, and administrators together make MHS a highly-regard¬ ed Hammond school. PEOPLE—PACE 90. 5 Variety Of Activities Provides STUDENTS EMPLOY the facilities of the Student Center on their lunch hours or during a free hour. Here they may study, read magazines, play games, and dance. A DANCE is held for the student body on most Friday nights by some Morton club or organization. The winners of the craziest sock Valen¬ tine dance are shown with their prize-winning socks: Marilyn Swa- lick, Sue Walsh, )ill Harris, Marilyn Plesek, Ramona Crowe, Susan Britt, and Judy Diehl. Outlets For Students’ Abilities WINNER in the Senior Division with the entry entitled " Temperature and the Chick Embryo” was Bruce Byrne shown here at work with the many instruments employed in his science project. Through the entire school year the students and faculty plan and participate in various activities centered around the school. Science programs encourage student initiative in many fields of biological development. Each year Mor¬ ton produces many winners in these fields. The musical abilities of the students have many outlets through the various programs sponsored by the music department under the direction of Miss Miller. THE WINNER of the “Dress Right” slogan contest, Cherie Shannon, poses before the new hall mirror presented to MHS by a local organi¬ zation stressing correct dress. THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT pre¬ sented the " Americana " on March 23. The participants in the program are —SEATED- A. Pumnea M. Roach, C. Barnes, R. Muffet, V. Boelter, N. Hoffman, K. Marcinki- vich, M. Evans, |. Harrison, V. Cetzlaff, P Smock; STANDING: N. Holley, T. Hupp, L. Bell, H A Gentry, j. Hawkins, ). Salka, T. Bielby, S. Paquin, C. Laud, S. Mer- tens, S. Tuttle, D. Whitehouse, D. Mace. THE USUAL PROCEDURE in the past has been for the newly elected presi¬ dent to swear in his chosen cabinet; accordingly President David Teegar- den performs this duty as his offi¬ cers take the oath of office. The 1960-’61 cabinet includes Vice- President Larry Overman, Recorder Judy Bogan, Chief Justice Steve Bel- son, Secretary of the Treasury Mabel Carrico, Secretary of Safety George Berbeco, Secretary of Assemblies Joan Sherby ' , Secretary of the Student Cen¬ ter Richard Pollard, and Secretary ot Social Affairs Alice Takas. Students Practice Government The government here at Morton is patterned extensively after the national government. The Stu¬ dent Association has its own senators and representa¬ tives as well as an efficient constitution. Also contained in our governing body is a student court with a Chief Justice, usually a senior, and one Justice from every class. This court hears cases be¬ fore and after school and decides the punishment. It has heard cases concerning set lockers, eating in the halls, disturbing classes, and jaywalking. The Morton student court has proved to be a worthwhile asset to the entire school system of Hammond. Voting on amendments to improve the efficiency of our procedures, revising the constitution to bring it up-to-date, and taking part in the elections with campaigns and inaugurations are all a part of the gov¬ ernors’ lives during the school year. Practicing governmental operations now will in¬ still a better sense of duty as well as understanding of our American government. It is hoped that Mor¬ ton students will gain the necessary experience to become better citizens and that they will be able to cope with the problems and situations that will face them in the world of tomorrow. STUDENTS WHO WERE CHOSEN to attend the summer institutes are—-FIRST ROW: Karen Clark, Marilyn Swalick, Kay Hemingway, Mabel Carrico, Helen Shoemaker; SECOND ROW: Linda Austin, Alan Smulevitz, Allen Zwinklis, Rosanne Smith, Gail Schlesinger; THIRD ROW: Stuart Lewin, Paul Stivers, Len Bissa; FOURTH ROW: Steve Beison, Jim Palmer, John Bailor, Dave Byrne. To obtain a firm basis for the function¬ ing of the various school activities of the year, students are chosen to atten d nu¬ merous summer institutes which include Cheerleading Camp, Journalism Institute, Boys’ and Girls’ State, Speech Institute, United Nations Conference, and the World Affairs Institute. Each year a number of juniors and sen¬ iors visit the nation’s Capital. This exper- ence is educating as well as enjoyable for the students participating in this annual fall trip to Washington, D. C. Students Become Travelers AFTER A RECENT TRIP to Franklin College for a journalism conference, these students discuss the major points brought out by the speakers. The participants in the conference were Allen Zwinklis, Gary Werskey, Rosanne Smith, Diane Wieland, Sue Dorman, Diane Kominiak, Joe Harrison, Jim Burdeau, and Tim Reid. A CROUP of Morton students are resting their weary feet after a long educational trip through the Capitol Building. 9 Thrills, chills, and unbridled humor were the elements that were so skillfully blended by writer Raymond Dumkey in this year’s fall play, “The House Nobody Lived In. " Virgil Keech (Eddie Baker) came into possession of an old and deserted mansion called Kentforth. This gave him the authority to rent the mansion to Mrs. Fortesque (Cindy Kackley), who has been traveling all over the country looking for a house that is haunted! However, before she can complete the transaction, Virgil Keech is discovered with a bullet wound in his side. Who is the man who poses as a Police Inspector and turns out to be an imposter? Are the ghosts at Kentforth really authentic? Who mur¬ dered Virgil Keech? These are only a few of the puzzling questions that baffled the audience as the Morton presentation of the play " The House Nobody Lived In " developed on the evenings of November 17 and 18, 1960. “STAY AWAY from my daughter, Sherman Norton,’’ yells Mr. Keech (Eddie Baker), threatening Sherman (Lannv Barnett) while Judy Keech (Gail Piekarczyk) looks on with concern for her fiance. RUNNINC FROM THE ROOM, Barrow (Joe Harri¬ son) reveals himself as the murderer, while Jinx (Sue Walsh), Sherman Norton (Lanny Barnett), Judy Keech (Gail Piekarczyk), and Inspector Holmes (Frank Yates) watch him flee. Ghosts In This Day and Age!” REVEALINC HIS HIDINC PLACE where he had been spying on the group. Inspector Wilson (Byron Greg¬ ory) surprises Dolly Keen (Marilyn Swalick), Anastasia (Sharon Friend), and Judy Keech (Gail Piekarczyk). 10 Our Town The absence of scenery always de¬ mands the highest degree of acting attainable by the players. Therefore, when Thornton Wilder ' s play Our Town was presented by the seniors, the pantomiming skills of the entire cast were developed. On April 27 and 28, the three-act play was presented under the guidance of Mrs. Martha Dean, the director. With its stirring action, the presentation commanded the attention of the audience. Portrayed Vividly THE SMALL CONCRECATION of Grover ' s Corners look on joyfully as Emily I Kathy Thompson) and George ()oe Harri¬ son I turn to walk down the aisle of the church after the minister, portrayed by the stage manager (Ted Hupp), has pronounced the young couple man and wife. STOPPING TO CHAT for a moment, joe Crowell I Bob Colec hands the morning paper to Dr. Gibbs (Allen Zwinklis), who is just coming back from a late sick call in Polish Town. Mrs. Gibbs (Susan Walsh) and Mrs. Webb (Marilynn Swa- lick) busily prepare breakfast for .their families. Formals Bring Enjoyable And As the last big social event of the year sponsored by the senior class, the 1961 Winter Formal, Rhapsody in Blue proved a delightful occasion for the students gathering at St. Michael ' s Hall. The glistening snow, sparkling trees, and wintry wishing wells made up the colorful snow scene at the entrance to the dance. A round reflecting mirror cast off a bright array of colors from the spot lights to provide a dreamy atmos¬ phere for everyone. The memory of this wonderful night will exist in the minds of all who attended for years to come. THE EXQUISITE SNOW SCENE of trees, snow, and ponds drew many admirers. THE DANCERS DELIGHT in a chance to show off the latest steps and to see their close friends with their dates. THE BAND CHOSEN for the 1961 Win¬ ter Formal provided a wonderful atmos¬ phere for the students, who danced, talked, or just observed. Relaxing Evenings For Students THE WEARY DANCERS take time out to talk about their various activi¬ ties of the evening as well as of the following day. “Deep Sea Dreamland” presented by the junior class as the 1961 Junior-Senior Prom, was enjoyed by both students and attending faculty. St. Michael’s Hall was rented for this annual occasion which was held on the spring night of May 19. Students anxiously prepared for their dates by picking up the flowers, washing the car, and securing the necessary finances. The committees performed their duties with delight as they decorated the hall, ar¬ ranged for Hal Morris’ band, and supplied the dainty cookies and delicious punch. Excitement filled the air as the students began to leave for the After-Prom Party. THE ATMOSPHERE SEEMS BRIGHTER as the band begins to play smooth music and the dates go on the dance floor. AS THEY LEAVE St. Michael’s Hall for the After-Prom Party or a near-by restaurant, a couple reminisce over the memories of the still-young night. 13 Colorful Homecoming Presented ENTHUSIASM AND HARD WORK produced the uniquely decorated cars appearing in the parade to the home field. Homecoming night was a triumphant occasion for the Governors. The first big event of the evening was a long and colorful parade of beautifully decorated cars and floats which were the product of many hours of hard work and planning. Main feature of the evening was the half¬ time ceremonies at the game. Master of Cere¬ monies Gary Werskey introduced the candi¬ dates and then announced Jackie Svabik as the queen. The Morton band and twirlers displayed their talents by depicting, in original formations, the professions of alumni. Our victory at the game and the coronation of the queen were celebrated afterward at the Homecoming Dance. It was a pleasant finish for a most memorable evening. 14 Stall Adds To Sectional Thrills Morton once again opposed Hammond Clark High School in the East Chicago sectional tournament as they have done many times in the past. The team’s new stall technique got wide acclaim from the critics, boosters, and newspapers. With the score 8-0 against them at the half, the Governors made a comeback which ended with the final score at 27-26 in Clark’s favor. The “Mighty Governors” fought hard as they pushed the score up to meet the challenge of the highly-ranked Clark Pioneers. Morton boosters cheered the team gallantly. The cheerleaders; Steve Beison, the Big Governor; and Bobby Hays, the Little Governor, led the yells of the MHS backers. The cheering section was formed into the shape of a top hat, the symbol of the Morton Governors. Sportsmanship and fine play utilized by the team and the spirit of the students in the stands made the sectional game successful for MHS. BEFORE LEAVING for the Washington Gym, the cheerlead¬ ers presented a rousing pep session to cheer the team to victory against their opponents from Clark. THE STUDENTS ANXIOUSLY WATCH the Governors as they beg ' n their famous stall tactics which brought the score to 27-26 in the final seconds of the game. WHILE SITTINC EAGERLY awaiting the first moments of the game, the students glance excitedly at the door through which the team will be entering the gym. 15 Faculty And Students Manage DURINC BROTHERHOOD WEEK Principal A. W. Clark planned an assembly which included foreign-born students of Morton High School who gave their opinions of America. The par¬ ticipating students are—SITTING: Maria Kunz, Heike Klinger, Dorothee Bell, Bridget Cernev- ski, George Smundin, Emir Utus, and Modera¬ tor Dave Teegarden; STANDING: Lirda Mun- ro, Jeanne Rose, Aurelia Gincauskas, Dave Fur- uness, Patrick Hill, Ken Lessie, Larry Lessie, Sherrel Thomas, and Pat Cole. Each Friday morning for a period of thirty-five minutes an educational program is presented to the student body. Besides filling education needs, A. W. Clark, Morton principal, looks to quench the stu¬ dents’ recreational needs. These assemblies provide a refreshing lift after four days of school work. The programs include such topics as careers, groom¬ ing, health, holiday observances, and pep sessions. Often guest speakers visit Morton and talk in the assembly on timely topics. Panels by 5 students are given on current questions. At Easter, Christmas, and Thanksgiving there are special programs. ON OCTOBER 21 an assembly was given In honor of Mr. Lee L. Caldwell, late superinten¬ dent of Hammond Schools. Mr. A. W. Clark, MHS principal, and Mrs. Lee L. Caldwell are shown leaving the assembly program. HUMOROUS SKITS accompany the pep session assemblies given by cheerleaders, students, and faculty to honor the sports participants. On occasions the students and teachers represent the team players in enjoyable, delightful pre¬ sentations. 16 And Direct Assembly Programs UNDER THE DIRECTION of Ellis Hays, speech coach, and his assistant Larry Ruff, the speech department presented an interesting and enjoyable assembly. Included in the pro¬ gram were Mike Boa-dman with a humorous interpretation. Aurelia Cincauskas with her dramatic reading, and Diane Wieland with a moving musical solo. THE CALATI DANCERS. Bob and Carlyn Calati, performed folk dances from foreign countries throughout the world for the Morton student body in an assembly on March 10. Will-Be’s Triumphant In Game THE CROWD OF SENIORS anxiously looks at a Has-Been player as he sets at the free throw line. The cheers are led by Marilyn Swalick, one of the senior cheerleaders. The gym was filling to its capacity as the Gpvernors took their places in the bleachers. The Will-Be’s secured the first basket as the game began. For the first time in the history of Morton the seniors were the underdogs. This was due to the fact that practically all the seniors had been eliminated from the team early in the season. The annual Has-Been—Will-Be game held much excitment for the faculty as well as for the students. The seniors or Has-Beens put on a surprising fight as the varsity team, coached by Coach DePeugh, fought to keep the score ahead. The participants played hard and fair as the minutes wore on. The final seconds of the game showed the teams to have terrific stamina, especially the Has-Beens, considering their lack of practice and experience. The game ended with the Will-Be’s ahead by a few points. THE BOYS JUMP HICH as the referee, Mr. Concialdi, throws the basket¬ ball into play. The team members look on with concern for the outcome of this play in the annual Has-Been, Will-Be Came. AT THE HALF the underclassmen presented a skit involving the representation of the players on both teams. Flo Klem and Jody Eichelb r- ger scream with joy as a Has-Been, represented by Bridget Cernevski, limps on the floor to play for the Has-Been team. Morton Adopts Korean Orphan Having seen an article about the adoption of an orphan under the Fester Parents’ Plan, Roy B. Moore- head, social studies teacher, read the article to his economics classes. The following day a group of his students came to him with the idea of adopting an orphan for the school. Under the direction of Mr. Moorehead, enough money was collected from the student body and the sum was sent, to the organi¬ zation. Soon a complete history of Kim Chung Yung, Korean orphan, along with a recent picture, arrived. Kim Chung Yung is now living in a Korean orphan¬ age along with his younger brother. His father left the family when Kim was very young. His mother died shortly after this. Kim reached his fifth birth¬ day on February 15. The feeling of brotherhood lives in the actions of the students and faculty at Morton as they do their part in this gratifying undertaking. KIM CHUN YUNC, South Korean orphan, has been adopted by the Morton students under the auspices of the senior class. Roy B. Moorehead, social studies teach¬ er, has directed the class on its project. THE SENIOR DIRECTORS of the orphan pro¬ gram, Duane Hicks, Karen Clark, and Sharon Brown, proudly show the picture of the new¬ ly adopted orphan, Kim Chun Yung. 19 Seniors Have Eventful Year, DURING SENIOR WEEK faculty and under¬ classmen meet seniors who are dressed for various occasions. Sandra Torok portrays the day for shades or sunglasses; Duane Hicks depicts bermuda day; Diane Wieland recalls the memories of kindergarten; Camille Viland portrays the well-dressed senior. THE SENIOR ASSEMBLY was centered around the awards pre¬ sented to the graduating seniors. The seniors chosen as most valuable players in sports were Dennis Brant, wrestling; Dick Weiss, football; and lohn Bailor, cross-country. Face Future With Strong Hope THE “CLASS OF ’61 observes senior cord day by wearing the chosen colors of charcoal and baby blue. Rosanne Smith looks on as Steve Beison signs Natalie Holley’s skirt. Through the entire four years of struggle and extensive study put forth by this year’s graduating seniors, they have felt assured that graduation would be a happy occasion. Now when the time has arrived, the “old pros " are worried about having to face the future. All of the memories of four years begin to mean more to the graduates than just good and bad times. These anxious thoughts make the seniors rea¬ lize that the work of these four years must serve as a basis for each of their futures. The social season for the seniors included the Senior Banquet, planned by the Senior Executive Board; the Senior Play, Our Town, which recalled memories of the Junior year American Literature class; and the Prom, with its unforgettable memory of the last social event of the seniors’ high school days. The memories of these events will help to ease the pain of leaving the security, guidance, and excitement of high school life. The future now be¬ longs to the graduates—to shape as they may. LOOKING TOWARD THE FUTURE, the seniors are con¬ fident with the hope of tomorrow inspiring them. Janice Bright and Jim Burdeau face the unknown with their love of school, country, and God. Classes For All Offered at MHS The elements that make up an educa¬ tion come from many sources. Knowledge is found not only in books but comes from practical experience in the classroom. Morton plays an important part in making this education available to everyone at MHS. Classes are designed for the education of the individual. The special talents, abilities, and needs of each student are recognized and these qualities are given special attention through skillful counsel¬ ling and careful planning. Preparing young minds to meet the de¬ mands of the future is one of the challen¬ ges encountered in the classroom today. The well-planned curriculum includes the subjects necessary for a good educational background, as well as elective courses to complete the high-school education. Students may take subjects that appeal to them while receiving a well-balanced education. As Morton has grown, the cur¬ riculum has been adjusted and expanded so that it continues to offer a complete course of study for all MHS students. — Opportunities Arise Each Day STUDENTS who have first and seventh hours home study are allowed to use the facilities of the Student Center for chatting, eating candy, listening to records, or finishing homework. The less fortunate students sleepily trod on to appear in class at eight-thirty in the morning. Their only hope appears in the after¬ noon when the anticipated lunch hours roll around. Eight o’clock in the morning finds Morton students walking or riding to school in cars or buses. At 8:15 the building starts buzzing with activity as students rush to the bookstore to buy last minute items, to the library to return overdue books, and to the office to have excuses signed before starting to first hour class. DUE TO OVERCROWDING in the study halls, some students are assigned to an honor study hall. This study hall is not monitored by a teacher, and the students, themselves, have the responsibility of maintaining order. THE LIBRARY is at the service of students wishing to use books for pleasure reading, reports, or references. Stanley Elgas, librarian, checks out a book for Glenn Sargent, as Natalie Holley and Jim Hiduke await their turns. Math Aids Thinking, Reasoning Future America needs mathematicians; therefore, our school tries to offer as much math as it possibly can. Morton’s math cours¬ es include algebra, plane geometry, advanced algebra, senior math, commercial math, and general math. Senior Math is the name given to a new course for seniors. It includes solid geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and calculus. Algebra is a prerequisite for advanced algebra. Both courses of geometry work with figures either in a single plane or numerous planes. General math and commercial math are taken by students who are on the general course. Therefore, Morton offers various math cours¬ es to serve the needs of all the students. THE CONSTRUCTION of a perpendicular line in a triangle, as done by Dave Teegarden, is a necessary step in certain trigonometric problems, fjoann Teegarden, Miss Marjorie Groves, and Ed Norris are observing Dave as he explains his strategy in the solution of the probl em. THIS ALCEBRA PROBLEM seems to have stumped John McCreary but apparently not Willy Ruff by the smile on his face. Mrs. Lena Bonebrake checks Willy’s work and approves. HOME-MADE LANTERN SLIDES make geometry easy and fun. Mrs. Nancy Squibb shows ferry Smith, Gloria Osmon, and John Spray the various auxiliary lines neeaed in the proof of a Geometry theorem. Mastery Comes With Study A NEW ORGANIZATION appeared in the second semester—a Literature club. Altr.ough extracurricular, the Club has an aca¬ demic standing. Sponsored by Mrs. Norma Kelly, the students read and discuss Russian novels. Fred Schroeder, Dana Stewart, Earl Creekmore, Pat Sherman, and Ray Price give a panel on the novel CRIME AND PUNliriMENT by Dostcyevski. Appreciation of English comes only with our full understanding of the language. Through the years of high school English, stu¬ dents come in contact with the age-old spell¬ ing demons, Silas Marner, Julius Caesar, Ham¬ let, sentence diagrams, and various American and English poets and novelists. Grammar and vocabulary are stressed in every course of English. Three and one half years of English are re¬ quired for graduation, but there is an elec¬ tive, English Literature, offered to those who are interested in a history of literature other than American Literature. Seniors alone can take this informative course. A PANEL on the Electoral College is presented n Speech V by Judy Bogan, Tom Oberle, Frank Yates, and Jill Harris. Impromptu speeches, dialogues, and prepared speeches are only a few of the many activities taught by Mr. Ellis Hays. COMPOSITION VII develops content and mechani¬ cal accuracy in the writing of the students. Mrs. Harriette Moylan instructs the students in the vari¬ ous phases of this English subject. Spelling and book reports are included in the course. Of Our Complex Language Speech is also offered to increase one’s ability to speak before a group of people. Numerous speech¬ es, panel discussions, and assemblies are given by speech students. Students with ability in writing who wish to fur¬ ther their English skills may take journalism in which they develop clear, concise, and accurate writing techniques. English is one of the most important courses in high school because of the training it gives us for daily communication with each other. To understand it and to master it is a great achievement of which to be very proud and happy. JIM PALMER RECEIVES review sheets on Hamlet from Mrs. Norma Kelly in an English Literature VII class. Poetry, essays, plays, and novels are all included in the course of study of this elective subject for high school seniors. JOURNALISM I CLASS prepares future TOP HAT and MORTON ITE members by providing experience in news writing. Under the guidance of Mrs. Helen Stock the students learn to write headlines and copy, to interpret material as to whether or not it is propaganda, and to evaluate various newspapers. Here Mrs. Stock super¬ vises as these students are writing feature stories. AS MISS VIRCINIA DAVIS looks on, Beryl Fry gives an oral presentation before an English III class. This course instructs students in appreciation of literature, compre¬ hensive writing, and grammar techniques. Foreign Languages Acquaint QUE ES ? According to Tom it is an Aztec Indian mask which he acquired on a trip to Mexico last summer. Judy Mestrovich, Al Brosman, Tom Phares, Mrs. Tsatsos, and Sue Dorman all seem to be very interested in this curious object. THIS MAP seems to be the center of attraction for Bridget Cernevski, Lucian Heacox, and Frances Pecelin. Mr. Ogilvie helps these German III students to find the location of various German cities. 28 “NOW LISTEN CAREFULLY!” Judy Howard says to Dick Weiss as she speaks to him in French, but he still can’t understand. French teacher Mrs. Janet Sachs encourages Dick in his efforts. Two new languages, French and Russian, were offered at Morton this year. Both were open to all students wishing to further their knowledge and education in foreign languages. Russian was offered as a solid, and the students so desiring could obtain high school credit for this course by meeting certain stan¬ dards. This class met after school and during evenings. Reports, conversations, and translations were on the course of study for French classes. First-year fundamentals and rules were studied and learned by the students. Latin, Spanish, and German are still popular among the students taking an academic course. Latin pupils learn of the Roman Empire and julius Caesar. In Spanish, fundamentals of this language are taught. Learning to speak German properly is one of the main objectives in German class. Thus high school students are well- informed of many different languages and ways of life in various countries. Students With Countries UNDERSTANDING FRENCH CULTURE and French his¬ tory is as important as learning the language. Furthering their knowledge, these students give various reports on French art, religion, war, fine arts, and history. With a background of France it is easier to understand this complex language. Here Sue Reynolds gives her re¬ ports as Mrs. Janet Sachs looks on. “PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, " so they say. Striving to perfect their language skills, Cerman students use the tape recorder to hear their own pronunciation of words and also their own mistakes. Joel Mixon and Bruce Byrne look on as Jim Hopp speaks first into the micro¬ phone. Mr. Ogilvie watches with approval. Morton High Students Explore REMOVING IMPURITIES FROM WATER by distillation are Diane Tomlinson, Jay Heming¬ way, Mary Cay Matovina, Mrs. Mary Petterson, and Len Bissa. Various experiments and demon¬ strations are done in the chemistry classes. This is a class in which anything can and does happen when the students begin working on their experiments and projects. Science is rapidly becoming one of the most important courses in all senior high schools. At Morton the different science courses include biology, physics, chemistry, health and safety, and zoology. Zoology was offered for the first time last fall. Chemistry, the study of chemicals and elements, is an interesting subject to all students curious about the composition of .substances. Physics is offered to juniors and seniors with certain mathematical requirements. The course is a study of mechanics, light, sound, and radioactivity. Biology is the study of all phases of life. It is usually taken by sophomores as their required year of science. Health and Safety is a semester course required of all high school students. It is a brief course in the study of the body organs, and it aids in under¬ standing the care needed by the human body. Zoology is a supplementary to biology. It is a science which emphasizes the animal kingdom. All those interested can find some course to further their scientific knowledge. THAT THE MOMENTUM of a steel ball is the same as that of a balsam ball is proved in a demonstration by Bill Witwer, Mr. Bill Came, Ken Kessler, and Ed Norris. Heat, Machines, and force vectors are studied in the Physics course. The Mysteries of the Sciences CIVINC A DEMONSTRATION of the parts of flowers to his biology class is Mr. Julian Rasmussen. Susan Knaver, Rosalee Kuhn, and Carol Polochak look on with interest as they disect their own flowers. The rest of the class watch closely to make sure they are performing the disecting properly. WITH THE AID of Hector, the well-known mannequin of the science department, Mr. Spitzer’s Health and Safety class identifies various parts of the head. Marie Melton and Jim Stahura raise their hands to answer. Future Home Managers Trained In Morton’s home art classes, such as cooking, clothing, and home management, students learn the essentials of copying with household problems. Courses begin with ele¬ mentary procedures and progress into more advanced phases of each specific art. Sewing courses are offered to girls of all grade levels. The girls learn the basic funda¬ mentals of this useful art and apply them to more complicated articles of clothing. Budgeting and furniture arranging are only two of the many points of study in home management courses. Cooking is not restricted to girls alone. Boys, too, dabble in the preparation of food. Many students take these courses as elec¬ tives to reap their benefits for future life. EXAMINING THE EMBROIDERY on this dish towel are Diane Thomas, DeLois Droke and Nancy Wiggins. Home manage¬ ment instructs the girls in various home activities which in¬ clude making and following a budget, selecting and arrang¬ ing furniture, and managing the family security and welfare; BOYS’ FOODS consists not only of cooking, but also of discussions and instructions in dating, home managing, and raising a family. “Two cooks are better than one. " This is proved as Jim Ochiltree and Ron Paswinski place these biscuits in the oven. LAYINC OUT A PATTERN is one of the basic steps in creating a fashion. Mrs. Stier gives advice to Gwen Diehl, Pat Doolin, and Pam Drahos before Pam begins to work with her material. Practical Arts Are Utilized MINOR HOME ACCIDENTS can be treated by girls experienced in first aid. Andrea Mancos, Kathy Horvat, Pat Relinski, and Sandy Buckner dem¬ onstrate the technique of weighing a baby and recording his weight. Home nursing and mechanical drawing are the Practical Arts courses offered at Morton High School. Mechanical drawing helps prepare boys for work in an industrial area. Scale drawings, lettering, and solving engineer problems are a few of the skills taught in this class. Home nursing concentrates on first aid for minor home accidents and every day occurrences. This course gives the girls practice in caring for the sick and the injured. Girls learn basic fundamentals of how to care for the sick and also how to keep calm and what steps to take in an emergency. VALUABLE TECHNIQUES are taught and learned in mechanical drawing. Solving this complicated engineering problem are Dick Brooke, Richard Kozdras, and Mr. Frank Concialdi. 33 Students Practice Useful Arts Morton provides a liberal business course for the students who are planning to work after graduation or to further their education. Ceneral business, business law, bookkeeping, salesmanship, typing, shorthand, and clerical practice are the courses that are offered. Ceneral business offers the students a com¬ plete explanation of further business courses. Business law defines the rights and obligations of all citizens in civic and business efforts. Bookkeeping explores vocational aptitudes for commercial occupations. Salesmanship is a course given to enable the students to do a better job of presenting themselves and their ideas. Personal typing is offered for those students not taking shorthand, while office typing is given to those who plan to use their skills in an office. The shorthand courses are aimed to develop the ability to take dictation at an advance rate of speed. Clerical practice is limited to those majoring in business. THE ABILITY TO SELL PRODUCTS in the business world is studied and practiced in Mrs. Soderberg’s salesmanship classes. Jim Pressnell puts his knowledge to use as he demonstrates this tape recorder to Cary Puette, who will be one of the consumers of tomorrow. CLERICAL PRACTICE gives students experience with various business machines. The ability to oper¬ ate these machines will be beneficial to future sec¬ retaries or for personal use. Judy Cotterell is pre¬ occupied with the long list of numbers she is total¬ ing on the adding machine in the clerical practice room, one phase of the course. FUTURE SECRETARIES learn their trade in the stenography class. One hour a day is spent working in the shorthand room, and another hour is spent practic¬ ing in the typing room. Employing the many different functions of a stenography class, which includes dictation and transcription, are Pam Gaughan, Carol Karna- fel, Lois Casey, Nancy Woerner, and Sherry Pelhank. 34 Fine Arts Develop Talent Learning from books isn’t the only type of education needed to develop a balanced high school career. One of the essential parts re¬ quired in balancing the education is artistic training. Experience is gained through various art classes, which are taught in the frame building. Girls’ chorus and boys’ chorus teach the students the fundamentals of singing and helps to develop their voices. Two semesters of chorus are required of those who show an interest in becoming choir members. The choir and the choruses present assemblies, concerts, and also sing for commencements. Students use their musical abilities by serv¬ ing and entertaining the school in assemblies, concerts, and at basketball and football games. Although there is a separate language de¬ partment, language may also be included in fine arts. Russian, the newest language at Morton, is an after-school class open to all high school students. These classes teach artistic abilities and appreciation of the different types of arts. • ' CASPODENE” RUSNAK IS CREETED by Judy Howard, Mary Kay Thegze, and Aurelia Cincauskas as they arrive at an after school Russian class. Mr. Andrew Rusnak shows the class pictures of Russian folk dances. MORTON HIGH’S QUARTET MEMBERS, Kay Hemingway. Diane Wieland, Ted Hupp, and H A Gentry performed for the neighbor¬ ing businessmen on the annual B.I.E. Day. They practiced their numbers during fourth hour when the choir met. EXPRESSING ONE’S IDEA is accomplished through art and draw¬ ing. Marie Melton, Sally Clark, and Sharon Klaubo, under the supervision of Mr. Anthony Waring, are experimenting with mano- printing, a process of reproducing one picture from a single print. Social Studies Bring Culture THESE CEOCRAPHY STUDENTS, Kathi Nemeth, Frances Ecklund, and Danny Johns¬ ton, are concentrating on one of the troubled spots of the world as Mr. Robert Newkirk points to Laos, a small country in Asia Minor. Social study courses are required of the high school students. Geography, a freshman course, gives a complete description of all the coun¬ tries, their people, and their ways of life. In the sophomore year World History gives students a background in all phases of historical significance. United States History introduces the juniors to their American heritage. Government and Economics prepare the seniors for their lives in the world of today and tomorrow. The purpose of United States and World Affairs is to broaden the students’ knowledge of current world and United States events. With this complete outlook of the present, past, and future happenings, the students are able to understand the world and its people. ADVICE AND COUNSEL are being given by Mr. Keith McClellan to John May for a term paper in world history. Mr. McClellan also con¬ fers with all students concerning their six weeks’ book reports. MOCK CONCRESSES were held in Mr. Hays’s Government classes. The students were formed into a senate, and all students participated. Allen Zwinklis was elected to the vice presidency, therefore holding the office of President of the Senate. Joe Harrison, Judy Villadsen, Bruce Siecker, and Bob Golec were executive officers. Bills were proposed; laws passed. Calling for a division of the house, Joe Har¬ rison and Sharon Murchek rise to be recognized. Weary Governors Tread Home When 3:40 P M. arrives the students dash through the halls collecting books, making plans for the evening, and trying to get a ride home. The halls empty fast, and soon all that can be viewed are dim, deserted halls. Some students go home to eat, study, or watch television; others go to favorite meeting places where they can talk with their friends. “HURRAH! It’s 3:40 at last!” shouts Paul Stivers as he rushes out of his seventh hour class. This is not an unusual scene when the last bell brings an end to a busy and active school day. Morton Offers Variety of Clubs The satisfaction of service, participating in worthwhile projects, experience in hu¬ man relations, and a chance to meet new friends are but a few of the rewards gain¬ ed by taking part in Morton’s many clubs and organizations. Morton’s tradition of giving service to the community and developing the talents of the individual is carried out through these various organizations. Activities provide creative outlets for students’ abilities and leadership quali¬ ties. Both the students and the school gain when the Governors achieve recognition and honors through club work. Academic clubs help students to further their interests and knowledge in the scholastic field. Service club projects are important in teaching responsibilty and concern for the welfare of others. Participating in student government and school publications and assisting teachers are other ways students can do their part for the school. Forming friendships, accepting responsi¬ bility, and serving the school are exper¬ iences gained through Morton’s clubs. Yearbook Staff Members Plan, EXECUTIVES DISCUSSING PLANS for the 1961 TOP HAT are—Editor-in-Chief Allen Zwinklis, Photo Advisor Julian Rasmussen, Sponsor Mrs. Helen Stock, Assistant Editor Rosanne Smith, and Photo Editor Leonard Bissa. Deadlines to be met, advertising to be sold, and copy to be written were only a few duties done capably by the staff of the 1961 TOP HAT. Students worked many hours each day to produce an annual of which their classmates could be proud. Under the supervision of Joe Harrison and Diane Kominiak, over $2,400 worth of advertising was sold, while homeroom representatives sold over 600 annuals to their fellow students. During the year, trips sponsored by the TOP HAT were taken by many staff members. Rosanne Smith, Leonard Bissa and Allen Zwinklis attended a two-week summer course in Journalism at Indiana University. In the fall Rosanne and Allen along with Mrs. Stock flew to New York for a journalism con¬ ference at Columbia University to receive an award for the 1960 TOP HAT. There was also a journalism conference held at Franklin College.

(News Editor Linda Nolan was absent when picture was taken.) Thus, a staff of seven produced the paper. BUSINESS STAFF members checking to see if enough advertising space has been sold to pay for a certain issue are—Del Shipley, Kim Miller, Tim Reid, Mark McNeil, Sandy Kessler, Ray Price. This year a limited number of students worked together to produce the semi-monthly newspaper publication, the MORTONITE. Staff members worked daily writing, re-writ¬ ing, and checking copy to meet their dead¬ lines. A well-organized business staff sold ads to local patrons and to clubs sponsoring var¬ ious activities throughout the year. The MORTONITE gained distinction by being leaders in a drive over all of Hammond for the financing of an air-raid warning sys¬ tem by the city. MORTONITE editorials on the subject created such an impression that a local newspaper ran a series of articles re¬ lating to the system. Present staff members campaigned, wore MORTONITES to school, and ran editorials in hope that a well-balanced staff would be prepared to take over the paper next year. 42 Students Maintain Law, Order Monitors assumed the major role in maintaining law and order in the corridors before, during, and after school. Each hour of the school day eight monitors, under the leadership of a lieutenant, checked lockers, issued court no¬ tices, and inspected passes of students in the halls. This year white buttons with the word “monitor” printed on them were issued to all monitors.

Concerts and Music Assemblies Music is expressed in many forms. At Morton High School many students have discovered music to be both fun and interesting as well as educational. Through the boys’ and girls’ choruses, the band, the orchestra, and the choir, students are able to dis¬ play and express their musical talents. Choir has attracted many fine singers into its ranks. A prerequisite to this interesting class is the newly instituted choruses. After two semesters in the chorus the vocalist is transferred to the choir where advanced music is studied and sung. The choir, together with the chorus and the orches¬ tra, presented two concerts this year. At Thanksgiv¬ ing, Christmas, and Easter the choir, under the direc¬ tion of Miss Miller, sa ng at assemblies, bring the holi¬ day spirit to the student body. Under the direction of Mr. Gregory, the orchestra blended its music to present two concerts. The talent of the orchestra members was displayed by playing music both humorous and sublime.

Association Through the guidance of David Teegarden, President of the 1961 Morton Association, the student body became better acquainted with the ideas and organizations of the student government. Mimeographed copies of work done at all meetings of the Association were sent to each homeroom to be posted on the bulletin board. First hour each morning the President and his Cabinet met in the Student Center to discuss solutions to various problems confront¬ ing the school and the students. The cabinet, too, is an important part in the student government. Under Richard Pollard, Sec. of Student Center, the Center continued to be a popular meeting place for students on their lunch hours and free periods. Balancing the books and keeping the Association out of debt was the tedious job of Mabel Carrico, Sec. of the Treasury. Sec. of Assemblies joan Sherby scheduled varied and interesting assemblies each Friday morning which were presented to the student body. Cars driven to school had to be registered with Sec. of Safety George Berbeco. Clubs sponsoring social functions cleared the time and place with Sec. of Social Affairs Alice Takas.

Students participating in Morton’s many sports find enjoyment, learn skills, and meet new friends. The spirit and the abili¬ ty employed by those in Morton’s sports have truly earned for MHS students the title of the “Mighty Governors.” Eleven athletes drive down the field, never stopping until they reach their ulti¬ mate goal—a touchdown. A fast break finds five Governors moving swiftly down the floor to score. A wrestler reverses a hold and gains points that lead to a vic¬ tory. From short to second to first, and it’s a game-ending double play. This ac¬ tion is symbolic of the fine play of the Governor athletes. The fierce competition displayed by the Governors leads to victory for Morton’s athletic teams. In the background, at the sporting events, the enthusiastic cheers of the Morton boosters supporting their team on to victory can be heard. Whether one wants to be a participant or a viewer, Morton has sporting events to meet the interest of everyone. 66 Let’s Go!

The Governors closed the ’61 season by defeating the Noll Warriors by a score of 40-8. 83 Girls Participate In Sports The Morton Chapter of the Girls Ath¬ letic Association, a state organization, or¬ ganizes competitive sports for all girls in¬ terested in joining.

STEVE PAQUIN, center-fielder, carefully watches the pitched ball so that he will be ready to move on the play and field any balls that are hit to him. Governor Nine SECOND BASEMAN DON BELL waits cautiously for the pitch while his teammates look on. Don was one of Morton ' s “Mighty Mites " this year as the Governors played to a successful season. With the coming of spring, thoughts turn to baseball, and this is true at Morton. At this time the baseballs, bats, and gloves are taken out of stor¬ age, and the baseball season gets under way. The Governors were led by the strong left arm of Bob Guzek, sophomore fastballer, and by Steve Pa- quin, senior center-fielder, with a .425 batting aver¬ age. This year, the Governor hardballers, under the coaching of Jack Georgas, had an excellent season. Scoring as many as fifteen runs a game and no-hit pitching by the Governors proved Morton to be one of the outstanding baseball teams in this area.

MARIE MELTON AND DIANE MILNE, Mor¬ ton’s feature twirlers, demonstrate a twirl¬ ing exhibition in an exciting performance. Twirlers Provide Entertainment Adding high stepping highlights to all of, the football games are the majorettes and cadets. They have contributed beauty and pre¬ cision to the halftime festivities as well as to numerous other shows given by M.H.S. This year, the twirlers performed at the basketball games for the first time. Both groups are in¬ structed by Mrs. L. Melton every day after school. Marie Melton and Diane Milne, fea¬ ture twirlers, led the formations. The Morton twirlers participated in a number of local and state contests this year. THE 1961 MAJORETTES are—BACK ROW: Cheryl Bothwell, Judy Potis, Mari¬ lyn Mayden, and Nancy Hoffman; MIDDLE ROW: Janice Bright, Judy Cuy, Joyce Vargo, Eileen Ritthaler, and Cheryl Szoke; BOTTOM ROW: Diane Milne, Nancy Hill, Cynthia Ventrella, Sally Rohl, Mary Ann Zych, and Marie Melton. Everyone Can Find Friends At MHS Morton’s most important asset is people —students, teachers, administrators. Stu¬ dents in the halls laugh and exchange greetings. Serious faces in a classroom study the world’s past or the nation’s fu¬ ture. Eager fans cheer the team to victory. Students take part in school activities, meet friends, and bring honors to the school everyday. The faculty does their part by preparing students for the future. The friendly relationship formed with teachers and fellow students are the truly important things gained from high school. Students make friends with whom they participate in the same activities, attend the same events, and work in the same classes. Morton’s greatest pride is its students. The memories of scholastic achievement, athletic prowess, and honors and awards will linger on, but Morton will be best remembered—not for the debate tourney, nor the band contest, nor the football games—but for the “Mighty Governors” who were responsible for Morton’s achieve¬ ments. Many things about high School may be forgotten, but friendships and person¬ alities are the qualities which remain. 90 GIRLS’ STATE REPRESENTATIVES: Kay Hemingway, Caroline Reichardt, Judy Ho- D.A.R. AWARD WINNER: Judy Bogan, ward. Students Receive Morton students work for excellence in all that they attempt and, achieving their goals, receive many honors and awards. Each year outstanding juniors are se¬ lected by the faculty to attend Boys’ and Girls’ State. For one week delegates learn about government activities and affairs by participation in a mock state. Students run for offices and govern themselves. A junior also is selected to be the Mor¬ ton delegate to the United Nations. On this trip, the delegate learns the func¬ tions of the U.N. and is able to view the many famous sites of New York. A great knowledge of government and DELECATE TO THE UNITED history is the major qualification neces- NATIONS: Jerry Hutsler. sar y for candidates for the D.A.R. Award. MERIT SCHOLARSHIP FINALIST: David Teegarden. T.V. DEBATERS: Linda Nolan, moderator; Paul Stivers and Cary Wer- skey, participants.

This year two Morton students partici¬ pated on “Rebuttal,” a televised debate program in Chicago Another student told the viewing audience about MHS. Two seniors who rank one and two in their class are named Valedictorian and Salutatorian. respectively. Through these activities students bring honor to themselves and to Morton.

For the 259 students of the graduating class it was a year filled with innum¬ erable experiences. The class of 1961 began planning their activities soon after school began. Wearing their senior cords was a tradition they enjoyed. The Winter Formal was the first big social event of the year organized by the seniors. The senior class ad¬ ministered the adoption of a Korean war orphan by the entire student body. The Has-Been Will-Be basket¬ ball game between the seniors and the underclassmen was another tra¬ ditional event. The seniors looked forward to the Senior Play and Sen¬ ior Banquet in the spring and Senior Week in their last week of high school. LEADING THE CRADUATINC CLASS of 1961 were—Royleen Shanta, Vice Presi¬ dent; Sharon Murchek, Secretary-Treasurer; and Dennis Brant, President.

Hicks, Sponsor Mrs. board members—BACK ROW: Sponsor C Spitzer, D. Squibb, S. Kessler; FRONT ROW: R. Shanta, Thomas D. Stewart, S. Farley, C. Viland, J. Sherby; S. Murchek, D. Brant. Members of the Senior Executive Board combined their efforts in planning the senior activities. The members of the board were chosen by their homerooms and were assisted by the senior class officers and the class spon¬ sors, Gerald Spitzer and Nancy Squibb. During the course of nine months the board planned the Winter Formal, the Senior Ban¬ quet, and Senior Week- Various members assisted with other acti¬ vities of importance to the senior class, such as the measuring of caps and gowns. Some seniors were assigned to keep order through¬ out the measuring process. Others assisted the representatives from the E.R. Moore Company in copying measurements on individual cards. BOB HOLLOWAY poses eagerly for the measurement of his gown. Seniors Realize End Is Near DEEP IN THOUCHT and down in heart, this reminiscing senior recalls the memorable events of his high school years. The final round of open houses, senior parties, and school activi¬ ties as well as cramming for final exams has been too much for George Rivich. He pauses to rest and reflect about the past and the fu¬ ture before the important final event of his high school career, graduation exercises. He and his classmates soon must leave MHS. Juniors Anticipate Final Year The main project of the junior class, the 1961 Prom, was financed by the sale of ribbon and cookies. Helping with the projects were class sponsors Mrs. Soderberg and Mr. Alexander. Members of the future graduating class of 1962 have but one year left to prepare for college or future voca¬ tions. They have spent three years set¬ ting up ideals to follow and preparing themselves to accept the responsibili¬ ties that are required of seniors. THE JUNIOR CLASS selected Kay Hemingway as Secretary-Treasurer and Jerry Hut- sler as President, who, along with Paul Stivers, Vice-president, (not shown in the photograph) led the juniors in all of their projects.

Following goals set down in the previous year they prepare for the responsibilities to be laid upon their shoulders in their junior year. Having the experience of their freshman year, sophomores are pre¬ pared to plan for the future. THE SOPHOMORE CLASS chose Secretary-Treasurer Flo Klem, Vice-president Jerry Sako, and President Tom Phares to manage the activities of their class this year. These students have the responsibility of leading the class.

They go to various social gather¬ ings and attend athletic events, thereby becoming acquainted with their new school and fellow classmates. Soon after arriving at Morton the freshmen begin conferring with their class counselors who guide them toward future achievements at M.H.S. Students rapidly become orien¬ tated to their new surroundings at the school and find Morton a “second home.” DISCUSSINC THE PROBLEMS which they face as Frosh officers are Helen Holsclaw, Secretary-Treasurer; Larry Lessie, President; and Ron Lohse, Vice-president.

W. WINSTON BECKER, administrative assistant, has countless duties on his daily agenda. He plans the school program schedule, compiles attendance records, and acts as the school disciplinarian. Mr. Becker can always be trusted to give fair and impartial decisions. Mr. Becker received his B.A. degree from Huntington College and his M.A. from Indiana University. The members of the Morton High School faculty believe that it is their purpose and re¬ sponsibility to develop a sense of good citizenship so that each student may assume an intelligent and commendable place in our democratic so¬ ciety, to help each student make any necessary social or physical adjustments, to pro¬ vide a curriculum which will meet the needs of the student body in life situations. To accommodate the less gif¬ ted students, the faculty mem¬ bers are constantly broadening the curriculum. rather than lowering the standards. The administration and fa- culty hope to attain these goals through proper guidance, counseling, discipline, and ac¬ ademic instruction. MR. A. W. CLARK, principal since 1942, has shown his devotion to youth and its interests through his par¬ ticipation in community, school, and church activities. Morton students can always remember Mr. Clark as a sympathetic and warmhearted person. Mr. Clark received his B.S. degree from Central Normal College and his M.S. from Butler University.

A good relationship be¬ tween the school and the community is necessary for better schools, more school spirit, and a better community. Many school activities, projects,, and publications receive the support and back¬ ing of the community. Often financial aid is necessary, so these publications solicit advertising from merchants. The exchange that advertising creates between the school and the community benefits both. Advertising helps Morton students to form buying habits and build good will for the buyers of tomorow. It also develops responsibility and good business habits. The interest of patrons is also an im¬ portant e lement in this relationship. Ad¬ vertising in student publications is profit¬ able for the merchants because of the in¬ creased purchasing power of adolescents. Advertising has established the tradition that has developed at Morton of students taking an interest in the community. Ad¬ vertising benefits everyone involved— patrons, students, and the community.

Sports Formals Dear Governor, You. as a student of Morton High School, are primarily responsible for the 1961 TOP HAT. For without you there would be no reason for this yearbook. The production of this book was a tedious task. It took co-operation, not only by the staff, but also the printer, the photographers, the faculty, the administrators, and you, the students. The editorial staff deserves much credit, for it was they who worked so diligently to com¬ plete this publication. Rosanne Smith, my assistant editor, aided and answered the questions of the staff, besides working on her own section. The teamwork and effort displayed by the edi¬ torial staff members are major reasons why the task of putting out this yearbook was completed. Mrs. Helen Stock, our advisor, was always near to give assistance or to answer questions. Our printer, Emerson Delaney, gave us professional advice concerning the yearbook. Through their efforts we were able to put out a better yearbook. The business staff contributed greatly to the success of the TOP HAT. Homeroom sales¬ men sold nearly 750 books, while the advertising salesmen, under advertising manager Joe Har¬ rison, sold $2,500 in ads.
