Jr!.y ? r ots ° n ot«Ns . mmm HiMj im®l pf2 C$M Morton Is The Key MHS students have many opportunities unlocked to them — opportunities in scholastic achievement, organization, companionship, sportsmanship, social activity, and patronage. Morton presents these oppor¬ tunities by being a key itself. Symbolistic of the spirit behind Morton’s unlocked opportunities is the Morton High School key. This small black and gold key is given by a local jeweler as a charm to be worn by graduating seniors. By having this key, seniors will look back on the past years with fond memories of the experiment that blew up in the chemistry lab, the ball team rated sec¬ ond in the state, the senior banquet where everybody stuffed themselves with goodies, and finally, graduation where the tears were in as great an abundance as the caps and gowns. Even the small,. seemingly unimpor¬ tant things will be remembered—coke parties before a big dance, slumber parties where no one really slept, and mad lunches with classmates in the cafeteria. Many students have delighted in the adventure of attendihg Morton for four years. Because of this “fron¬ tier” each day is a challenge, even though it might be only a small one, and it brings them closer to the goals they wish to achieve. Through diligent study and complete cooperation students begin to approach these goals. Morton’s key will unlock future opportunities be¬ cause it will not only give students knowledge, sports¬ manship, and companionship but will definitely aid them in becoming a well-rounded adult. Clubs organize and supervise special projects. The Booster Club provided the award-winning sectional cheering block. Morton Offered Contents Gtcfanijatiens Social Activities Academic Achievements £pwtsmanskijt CcmpanichShi 2 Patnnage Various Opportunities Social activities include many weekly sock hops. Karen Milton, Connie Williams, Norm Houser and Micki McGinnis do the twist. Academics are the mainspring of Morton. Many students realize this fact and study during their lunch hour in the library. These stu¬ dents are Beryl Fry, Mary Kay Thegze, and Pat Walsh. page 6 page 22 page SO page 66 page 90 page 136 for All Students This Past Year Morton Is The Key to Social Activities Memories of the bright, dazzling merriment of the Inaugural Ball and Prom will long linger with Mor¬ ton students. The sock-hops, plays, concerts, fall festi¬ vals, and even the lunch hours spent in the Student Center are only some of Morton’s student activities. Not only are these events a wonderful opportunity for students to have fun with fellow classmates but also to adapt themselves to cooperating with people outside of the classroom. MHS social activities are the finished products of many hours of hard work by the students. Students plan the entire event: when and where it should be, how it should look, and who should make and sell the tickets. When all the plans of the projects are neatly put together, the result is the best social pro¬ gram a school can offer its students. Morton, by offering this type of social program, meets the needs of the students for places to go and enjoy themselves. These activities give a student the opportunity to plan and work out a project in the way he feels best. In this way he may be a witness to the result of his plans, whether good 6r bad. Because Morton does provide an extensive social program, the students have the opportunity of gain¬ ing knowledge not offered to them in a classroom— the knowledge of getting along with other people. Student Association Heads Activities Student Association President Terry Collins swears in his cabinet Cheryl Bothwell, Secretary of Safety Richard Kozdras, Secretary members who are—Secretary of Social Affairs Peg Smock, Secre- of the Treasury Kay Hemingway, and Secretary of Justice Donald tary of the Student Center Eddie Baker, Secretary of Assemblies Sharpe, all new appointments for 1961-62. Inauguration ceremonies were brought to order on November 7, 1961, with the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. Terry Collins, president, Byron Gregory, vice-president, and Judy Kors, re¬ corder, were sworn into office by Principal A. W. Clark. President Collins gave an Inaugural Address and presided over the remainder of the assembly. Judy Kors and Byron Gregory then gave summaries of their offices and duties. Association Representatives, Senators, and Cabi¬ net Members were sworn in by Mr. Clark and intro¬ duced to the new executive officers. The Inauguration assembly was brought to a close in the traditional way—repeating the pledge of the Morton student. The Inauguration was completed by the annual Inaugural Ball, a semi-formal dance held November 23, 1961, with grades nine through twelve in atten¬ dance. Officers of the past Association were invited. Other executive members of the Morton High School Student Association, being sworn-in by President Terry Collins following the Inauguration ceremonies held in the auditorium are—Recorder Judith Kors and Vice-President Byron Gregory. Strives for Betterment of Morton High Caught in the act of raiding the icebox after the Inaugural Ball are Pam Evans, Jack Harris, Don Dakin, and Bob Bales. This year ' s Inaugural Ball, honoring the Association President Terry Collins, drew students to Saint Michael’s Hall on Thanksgiving Day. After most social activities Morton students make fully stocked iceboxes their first stop. After their plates are loaded with various left overs or other goodies, the kids grab colas and head for the basement to dance, talk: or just relax. Page Nine During a tussle with a long-time business competitor Lanny Bar¬ nett (left) smears a brush full of paint on Byron Gregory ' s face. Cindy Kackley tries to break up the fight which was over a big business deal while Verna Mae Getslaff and Gail Piecarczyk look on helplessly. The fight resulted In an agreement to colloborate on the business deal that they were both trying to negotiate and go Into business together, even though they had been rivals since they were in grade school together. It was not only the little dog but also the capacity audiences that laughed when they saw this year’s play presented on a Thurs¬ day and a Friday night. Under the direction of the new drama coach Miss Looze, the cast presented the farce, “The Little Dog Laughed,” about a college sophomore who came home to psychoanalyze her fam¬ ily and friends, only to find that she was the one that needed to adjust. Af¬ ter trying to change every¬ one she found that they could do all right alone. Presentation of Two Comical Plays Receives Praise of Capacity Crowds Trying to escape detection, another store clerk (Lanny Barnett) attempts to crawl back to his hiding place in the storage closet but is discovered by the keen-eyed Mrs. Levi. Listening carefully as Mrs. Levi tells him about a new prospective bfide, Mr. Vandergelder finds it hard to believe that anyone could be as lovely as Mrs. Levi is describing. Page Eleven Concerts Given By Musk Department Twirling ruffled umbrellas, members of the Girls ' Glee Club sang " Catch a Falling Star " and " Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella " in the Choir members presented “Tuxedo Junction " and " Bye, Bye Blues " in this production number. In slacks and shirts the choir sang these old favorites under the direction of Miss Barbara Miller. spring concert, Serenade to Spring, presented on March 23, 1962. The Choir and the Boys ' Glee Club also participated. Dancing while the Choir sings " Vienna Waltz,” Barbara Josway and Jim Smith gracefully perform the waltz. This number was presented in the fall concert. Music in Many Lands. Playing records to make the time go faster on the Washington trip are Georgene Eichelberger and Sherry Repay. During the pilgrim¬ age to the nation’s capitol, students find other preoccupations such as eating, reading, or just talking. Gladly disembarking. Governors and other Hammond high school students fumble for scattered magazines and luggage at the Wash¬ ington station. After a night with little sleep, the travelers welcome a chance to stretch and get some exercise. Students Journey To Nation’s Capitol More than 200 Morton, Hammond High, Clark and Tech students made the annual pilgrimage for juniors and seniors to the nation’s capitol this year. Six days were spent getting acquainted with the city of Washington and nearby colonial towns. Enroute to the capitol, a stop was made at Marion Ohio, where chartered buses took the group, first to the Ohio Wesleyan University Campus in Marion, and then to the Ohio State University campus in Colum¬ bus for a complete tour. At the Washington station students put on their coats, grabbed their luggage, and collected their wits before going to the Raleigh Hotel. After checking into their rooms at the hotel, students were free to do any extra sight-seeing that they wished to include in their itinerary. Chartered buses took the group of tourists to Jamestown, Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Fredericks¬ burg, Virginia, to view historical memorials. They also visited Swannaroe, headquarters of the Univer¬ sity of Science and Philosophy; Stratford, the birth¬ place of Robert E. Lee, general; and Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington, first president. Having tired themselves out with all the walk¬ ing and talking of a picturesque tour, our Hoosiers were happy to start for Indiana and settled down for a quiet trip home. On the train coming home students exchanged experiences they had had on the trip. During this time they were able to recooperate and prepare for their morning classes. Paying respect to one of the nation’s most honored monuments, students stand quietly during the changing of the guard, a very ceremonious procedure, at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This monument, located in Arlington National Cemetery, is only one of the many historically famous places that the tourists visited while on the a nnual tour to the eastern part of the country. Page Thirteen Outside Activities Interest Students Morton provides oppor¬ tunities for its students to participate in various out¬ side activities. During the summer clubs sponsor students ' trips to institutes at colleges and universities both in and out of state. Journalism, math and science, Y- Teens, World Affairs, twirling, and debate con¬ ferences were among the many activities in which Morton students took part during the summer. Advertising the senior play, Miss Looze leads the cast of ‘‘The Matchmaker " in singing about its performances. Cast members dres¬ sed in old-fashioned clothes, to suggest the play ' s setting. Boys’ and Girls’ State representatives for 1962 are these six juniors: Ron Stanis, Gene Tomsic, Bruce Byrne. Cynthi a Kackley, Carolyn Winsberg, and Barbara Josway. During the summer they will study the state gc remment at Indiana University. Students attending institutes in 1961 put on an assembly to report to the student body about their experiences. Here Paul Stivers, who was in national debate competition, reacts violently to the remark, “Only third in the nation!” Page Fourteen Sobbing and laughing after the Morton victory over Whiting dur- Polochak, Kay Hemingway, and Marge Moorehead accept congrat- ing the sectionals, Morton cheerleaders Cathy Faussett, Michele ulations and good-luck wishes from Whiting cheerleaders.

Page Fifteen Bonfire And Bus Trips Entertain All Buses crowded with students, clothes, and sack lunches carried the mighty Governers to some of the “away” football and basketball games. Yells and cheers kept the Governors’ spirit high. Class yells kept competition raging dur¬ ing the long bus trip. Praise of favorite play¬ ers rung through the buses before and after the game. Governors took many comforts of home on their excursions. Pillows, blankets, changes of clothes, and sack lunches were among the most common articles seen heaped on the seats and floors. Booster Club sponsored the buses for the students, but some adults found the bus trip sponsored by the Morton Adult Athletic As¬ sociation an exciting experience. Bonfire, game, parade, and dance were among the many exciting activities that brought the stu¬ dents into the real “swing” of school affairs dur¬ ing Homecoming. The Homecoming bonfire the night before the game drew people of all ages to the blacktop in back of the school. A war-whooping group of Indian braves danced around the fire and brought a climax to their dance by burning a Bishop Noll football player in effigy. Students ended the evening’s activities with a dance on the blacktop. Gradually students drifted away to go home and start preparations for the coming “big day.” Expressing surprise at the Can¬ nibal (Vernon Arnold) bringing a shrunken head to contribute is the narrator of the assembly Jack Harris, while Villian (Byron Gre¬ gory) looks on. People represent¬ ing the different walks of life each brought something for Kim Chun Yung and then collected money from the audience. Charity Counts with Morton Students Looking healthy and happy, Kim Chun Yung admires the Christmas present, a snowsuit which was sent to him by MHS foster parents. Supporting Korean War orphan Kim Chun Yung and collecting canned goods for the Thanksgiving Hi-Y baskets were two of the charitable projects that the Morton student body undertook this year. Adopting Kim was originally the idea of the Historical Club which sponsored the money raising campaign for Kim’s upkeep. Last year’s seniors be¬ gan the tradition of passing the parentship of Kim on to the graduating class of the next year. The students responded enthusiastically to the Hi-Y Club’s request to contribute canned goods for several less fortunate families at Thanksgiving. UOO cans! Gene Sankowski, George Berbeco, and Sondra Gallimore helped the 12As collect the most canned goods for Hi-Y baskets. • 12 A ] iftWMGWBCl DON r OHS Prom Affords Moments to Remember Couples dance cheek-to-cheek in the romantic atmosphere of the year ' s only formal which was the Prom “Moments to Remember,” held at St. Thomas More Hall. Being served at the After-Prom Party which was held at the Woodmar Country Club are Robert Rosinski, Dianne Weedon, and Donald Sharpe. The party provided food and entertainment for students after the prom. Whirling and Swirling in a dream world, students looked from the climax of all social activities back on the events of the past year. Crepe paper and spot-lights transformed the hall into the ballroom for the 1962 Prom held on ' May 26. While the band provided soft dancing music, couples drifted to the dance floor, sipped punch from dainty cups, chatted with all their friends, or just .sat back and tried to capture the entire scene in ' their mem¬ ories. The Junior-Senior Prom was sponsored by the juniors in honor of the year ' s graduating class and was attended By only upperclassmen, graduates, and faculty members. Page Eighteen Students Enjoy Dancing and Skating Oops! Skating isn ' t as easy as it looks as these students discovered at the annual Biology Club Skating Party. Being crowned as Mr. Ugly is Dennis Mierzwa. Kay Hemingway. Homecoming Queen, crowned Dennis at the Hi-Y ' s Mr. Ugjy dance. Schedule for Senior Week Was Hectic The annual Senior-Fa¬ culty Banquet, “Years Gone By,” was held at a local restaurant in Whit¬ ing. Seniors and faculty members feasted on chic¬ ken, beef, and fish while joking and laughing about events in “Years Gone By.” Final activities for sen¬ iors presented a hectic schedule. During senior week, students dressed up according to the day it happened to be. The sen¬ ior assembly, baccalaure¬ ate, and finally commence¬ ment were the closing fin¬ ale to all high school func¬ tions for these students. During senior class week, seniors designated certain days to wear special outfits. Sue Svenningsen. Joel Jane, and Sherry Shadoan are shown here in the student center on dress-up day for seniors. Page Twenty Having already received their diplomas, these graduates file out mates. Following commencement exercises, the 1962 graduates of Civic Center to be congratulated by parents and fellow class- rushed off to open houses to celebrate the event. Commencement Brings Year to A Close Morton Is The Key to Organization Clubs at Morton meet only once a week. However, during that time many important things are decided. They make decisions on the project they will under¬ take, destination of their trips; or how the club can help others. A student may belong to a variety of clubs, depending on his interests. If helping other peo¬ ple interests him, there are some clubs that have but one purpose - to help others. Several clubs, such as math or phy-chem club, are available for students interested in academics. These clubs help a student to gain more knowledge in the subject and find true enjoyment in the course. Booster Club ardently supports the various athletic teams of MHS and provides transportation to many of the “away” games for the student body. These clubs offer unlimited opportunities to stu¬ dents. As an officer a student is faced with the great responsibility of running a well-organized club. The club members must work hard and be active to obtain the full benefits of an organization. Clubs may even help a student discover in what career he may find the best satisfaction. Organizations introduce to stu¬ dents other people with the same interests as theii own. An organization such as art club, photo club, chorus, or band may help develop a talent that the student may never have known existed.

TOP ROW: Assistant Photo Editor Paul Jackson, Chief Photo Editor Ray Hawkins, Photo Advisor Mr. Julian Rasmussen. Under the supervision of Sue Dorman and Sheila Stone the 1962 TOP HAT was issued. The deadlines were met, ad¬ vertising was sold, and copy was written to make the yearbook a success. The members of the staff worked hour after hour to produce an annual that brought them much satisfaction. The editorial staff members wrote, typed, and cut copy to fit the space available. Pictures of the senior class, classrooms, and the clubs were taken by Bodie Studio, and the activity shots were taken by the Photo Club. Diligently working to meet the deadlines, the staff members put out the yearbook that the pupils re¬ ceived the last week of school. Conferences and conventions were at¬ tended by many of the members of the staff. In the preceding summer Sue Dorman and Sheila Stone attended a two-week summer course in yearbook techniques at Indiana University. Through The Study of Journalism Business Staff Balancing the books for the Top Hat was the main job of the business staff. The advertising man¬ agers were in charge of selling a sufficient amount of advertising. Three typ¬ ists aided the staff editors with typing jobs. Managing the advertising and typing for the 1962 Top Hat are these members of the business staff—Assistant Business Manager D. Speelmon, Sponsor Mrs. Soder- berg. Ad. Manager F. Torok, Typ¬ ists L. Williams, J. Commer, J. Blanchard. Advertising Salesmen By selling advertising to local patrons, these students supplemented the income of the yearbook. As they gained knowledge in the field of selling, they also became confident of themselves. Under the supervision of Advertising Manager Fran Torok, the salesmen sold over $2400 of advertising. Homeroom representatives sold over 800 annuals to their fellow classmates—a 25 percent increase from the previous year. Selling the Top Hats was the principal task of the students. Business Man¬ ager Joe Ludders, aided by Assistant Business Manager Diane Speelmon, kept the ledger, organiz¬ ed the books, handled the circulations, and exchang¬ ed yearbooks with other schools.

In answer to last years plea for a lar¬ ger staff, well-balanced editorial and business staffs took charge of the school’s semi-monthly newspaper. While the busi¬ ness staff sold ads and supervised fi¬ nances in order to “make ends meet”, the editorial, staff organized lay-outs, cropped pictures, wrote copy, and devel¬ oped a sort of radar for any and all news around school. Members of the staff, including the editor Mike Boardman, studied at In¬ diana University in preparation for the management of the paper. The staff hopes to interest enough students in journalism to put out a weekly paper. Selling ads to local patrons handling circulating details and keeping the ledger straight through the year pf " 1961-1962 to pay for the Mortonite issues was the job of—Diane Weedon, Robert Colbert. Mark McNeil, Jim Herochik, and Charley Hill. Students Aid The School With Services Cinema Club Visual aid needs of stu¬ dents and teachers are ful¬ filled by the Cinema Club. MusiS for school sock-hops is also arranged for by this club. This organization maintains all sound equip¬ ment for the auditorium assemblies and programs.

Instructing new members in the essen¬ tials of taking pictures is another of its duties. The skill acquired in this activity may be used later in life, just for fun, or perhaps even in professional ventures. A photographer can be found at almost every school activity, at a dance, a game, or any special event, taking a picture for one of the three publications. The job of these members is both interesting and enjoyable to both the teachers and the students of Morton High. Serving Publications and a number of school or¬ ganizations are these members of the Photo Club. The members are—BOTTOM ROW: Sponsor Mr. Rasmussen, Vice-Pres. R. Hawkins, Pres. R. Barron, Sec. P.

These half¬ time performances, which were quite popular with the Morton football fans, only started the band’s activities during the school year of 1961-1962. The Morton band, which is known all around the region for its performances, marched in parades given in the Hessville area for Loyalty and Memorial days. It also had the honor of marching in Hammond, Whiting, and Chicago parades in which it received wide acclamation for its presentation and fine march¬ ing. The band also performed in the Riverview Mardi Gras in Chicago in the summer of 1962. Bandsmen provided music for the Inauguration and the State of Association address. They also participated in two musical concerts during the year. Morton’s pep band played for the cheering section before and during the half-time at all home basketball games. Playing for school assemblies and athletic events did not conclude the variety of ac¬ tivities in which the band took part. Besides giving two concerts this year, the band participated in an annual contest for bands from many different re¬ gions of Northern Indiana. Last year, in the Northern Indiana Annual Band Contest held in South Bend, the band received an “excellent” rating. Every year the members of Mor¬ Ready to perform for their annual fall concert were the 1962 band members of Morton High School. BOTTOM ROW: J. Sheridan, S. Zaher, L. White. T. Tackas, J. Permuda, L.

First place winners in the District Contest in February had the opportunity to go on to state competition in Indianapolis. Every year the band sells candy. The profits were used to purchase new uniforms and new instru¬ ments that were needed. The band is one of the organizations at Morton that help the students receive a basic understanding of music. This year the band was the largest that Morton has ever had. A total of 88 students participated in the band for the school year. Choir members do not concentrate just on sing¬ ing but also make an advanced study of music. Choir members brought holiday spirit to Morton students at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter by performing in assemblies. Religious and holiday songs were sung at these assemblies. Usually the programs included one or two soloists. Choir mem¬ bers produced a musical review in the fall and an operetta in the spring. Usually these two annual productions portray a colorful place in the world. The choir also performed at the graduation cere¬ monies and many other functions or meetings spon¬ sored by the school. The choir adds musical enjoy¬ ment for the students to the curriculum at Morton High School during the school year. P. Baldea, S. Detvay, J. Vargo, D. Weedon, B. Lubarski, S. Galli- more, M..

Orchestra and Girls’ Glee Clul) By practicing for concerts, plays, and other af¬ fairs, orchestra members were able to find the quali¬ ties of good music. They learned techniques and ways of interpreting music while they studied with their own instrument. Last year the orchestra re¬ ceived a second place in the district contest. The orchestra performed at two concerts this year, one in the fall and one in the spring. These concerts gave orchestra members a chance to present their talents in the field of music. Orchestra concerts usually included a variety of selections ranging from humorous, to strictly classical. Three pieces present¬ ed at the orchestra’s last concert which was given on March 13 were “South American Overture’’ by Isaac, “Rumanian Rhapsody No. 1” by Enesco, and “Russian Soldiers’ Dance” by Gliere. It is the orchestra’s duty and pleasure to perform at all school plays. They gave much enjoyment to their listeners between acts and before the plays began. Every day string players met during the fifth hour to practice and gradually improve their tech¬ niques. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday they were joined by the band members who were inter¬ ested in the orchestra. These band members blend their brass and wind instruments with the strings of the orchestra to make a delightful sound and a delightful tone. Every day the orchestra improved in size and sound. The orchestra now has become a new and quite important part of the music department at Morton School. Members of the Girls’ Glee Club participated in a winter and a spring choral concert and the Thanks¬ giving, Christmas, and Easter assemblies. The spring concert this March included the songs “Let A Smile Be You’re Umbrella,” “Catch A Fallin Star,” “To You,” and “Awake, ’Tis Spring.” The students per¬ formed in the May Music Festival with students from all the other Hammond Schools and sang “Die Musica.” The main objective of the Girls’ Glee Club is to give members the background needed to join the choir. Members enjoyed singing songs of happiness, sadness, and love. The Girls’ Glee Club is another organization at Morton that adds to the musical phase of the student’s education.

Each summer the Forensic League sponsors a national tournament. Local chap¬ ters of the area sponsored all the speech activities. The NFL enabled the students to improve their speaking ability, and it added much to the speech curriculum at Morton. To be eligible for membership in the NFL, members worked hard to gain points— these they received for each speech and debate in which they took an active part. The aim of the club was to present opportunities for students to take a part in speech activities and to develop a greater degree of skill in oral communications. J. Virag, A. Knish, J. Walsh, S.

Phy-Chem Club’s chief objective is to show chemically-minded students the in¬ teresting side of physics and chemistry. The educational side is usually covered thoroughly in the junior and senior class¬ es of physics and chemistry offered dur¬ ing the school year. Members of the Phy-Chem Club ex¬ periment with forms of chemistry and solve puzzling and complicated problems in physics. They learn about the various uses of chemistry and physics, and these two subjects gradually become more in¬ teresting courses to the students. Students who are interested in chem¬ istry, physics, and biology enter their projects in the Science Fair which is sponsored by the Phy-Chem Club every year. Students who win in the regional contest can go on to state and then enter the national competition. Phy-Chem Club also helps the chem¬ istry and physics student to understand and enjoy doing his class work under the direction of Mr. Came and Mrs. Petterson two Morton teachers. Biology Club Promoting interest in the natural sci¬ ence of biology and interesting students in different fields of biology are only two objectives of the Biology Club. En¬ couragement is given to the members to advance their biological view. This club, which tries to increase student’s inter¬ est in biology, helps students to com¬ plete their biology class homework with more ease. Different projects are entered by the students in the annual Science Fair in hope of winning city, regional, or state awards. Each year unusual dances are given by this club. They are so unusual that no one dares to copy them. Chocolate-cov¬ ered caterpillars, pickled grasshoppers, and other delicacies were offered to the brave students. Throughout the year students take field trips to see animals and plants in their natural habitat. Also an annual skating party is given by the club.

Ch ss Club The object of the Chess Club is to help produce a better game. Throughout the year students find new ways to im¬ prove their game. Each Tuesday members of the Chess Club meet to match their wits and skill to defeat their opponents with various challenging moves. These weekly meet¬ ings are held in the Student Center which is necessary for playing the thoughtful and provoking game of chess. The club is divided into two leagues. These two leagues play against each other. This system, as it improves the game, increases sportsmanship. As the semester ends, the competition grows very high. The top four players of the league play off in a tournament as each league roots for their player. The best chess player then becomes the champion of the Chess Club. Students Solve Challenging Problems Math Club Slide rules, logarithms, and the theory of probabilities were only a few of the problems that challenged the members of the Math Club this year. The Math Club provides its members with a deeper understanding of mathematics by del¬ ving deeper into the special problems of math. The Math Club .also broadens the student’s knowledge of mathematics so he may use this information in his class¬ es. This background material enables the student to do better in his math classes. Members of the Math Club are pre¬ sently taking some form of mathematics, thus attaining unity for this organiza¬ tion. Geometry, advanced algebra, and trigonometry are some of the types of mathematics discussed by the members of the Math Club. Members of the Math Club achieve a greater knowledge of us¬ ing mathematics in every day life and applying facts and principles to the things they already know. Increasing their proficiency in mathematics are these members of the Math Club. The Math Club consists of: D. Neff, P. Baldea, G. Schlesinger, L. White, C. Hill, Sponsor Mr. Dant, T. Collins, J.

This organization is very interested in new information about nursing methods. A committee of the club keeps a library of different schools offering nursing and health careers. These girls want all the information available to give them the facts, problems, difficulties, and advan¬ tages of the career they have chosen. The club also tries to show its members different phases of the nursing profes¬ sion so they will be able to choose ca¬ reers suitable to their likes and dislikes. Several trips to schools of nursing show the members different types of people in the actual process of becoming nurses. This visit enables the members to see what is waiting for them after graduation. A tea for mothers and a “Big Sister” day for the junior high girls are some “fun” activities sponsored by the club. Future Teachers The Future Teachers of America or¬ ganization gives aid to students who are interested in the teaching profession by giving them the time and the opportun¬ ity to practice facts they have learned about teaching. This is achieved by giving members a chance to teach in the elementary school. In order to give an annual scholar¬ ship the club sponsors two bake sales and a dance. This scholarship is given to an outstanding student who wants to enter the teaching field. It enables the deserving student to enter a college and sets a standard for the students to attain. At their meetings the club members discuss all phases, assets, and problems of the teaching profession. Also, movies are frequently seen on the subject.

The stu¬ dents must be in the up¬ per third of their class scholastically, must be of a junior or senior classifi¬ cation, and must have done superior work in writing, editing, or business man¬ agement. The society was organ¬ ized to encourage and re¬ ward individual achieve¬ ment in completion of staff duties. It promotes exact, clear, and forceful think¬ ing and prompts students to raise their scholastic average. Morton High School’s Chapter of the honorary Quill and Scroll consist of—BOTTOM ROW: C. Reichardt, S. Stone, Sponsor Mrs. Stock. L.-Hedwall, D. Kominiak. TOP ROW: S. Dorman, B. Cernevski, M. Boardman, R. Price. M-Club Morton’s M-Club serves as a regula¬ tory organization in affairs pertaining to lettermen. The club insists on high standards and ideas. These members have gained much recognition through their sportsmanship and fair play. Every two weeks the Morton M-Club meets to instruct lettermen in fair play. Under the guidance of their sponsor, Mr. Fraser, the members sponsor a dance and the Has-Been-Will-Be bas¬ ketball game in the spring. For the first time in the history of the M-Club, the club took charge of the election of the Homecoming Queen. Pictures of outstanding athletes hang in front of the athletic department. The Morton M-Club pays for these pictures from their treasury. The Morton M-Club is one of the honorary organizations at Morton that offers high goals to Governors.

Art Cl til) Under the leadership of Mr. Anthony Waring, students became acquainted with the tools and methods of modern artists. They also learned how to paint in different ways. Main implements of art were paints, pencils, and paper. The Art Club painted most of the scenery for the plays at school and for some of the assemblies on Friday mornings. Stu¬ dents contributed their study halls and many after-school hours to see that the scenery was ready for curtain time. The young artists attempted landscapes, por¬ traits, and modern art during the club period. Members painted in agreement to their mood, an important factor that determined the type of painting that was to be done in the club. Spanish Club By visiting a Spanish restaurant, members of the club were able to become acquainted with Spanish food ajid pastry. These stu¬ dents achieved the under¬ standing of the activities and culture of the people. To familiarize students with Spanish holidays, the club sponsored a Pinata— a Christmas Party. Many activities were performed outside of school since it is impossible for them to be done on school time. During the club period the members of the club spoke the language of the foreign country. The members of the club must have taken or must be presently tak¬ ing Spanish to belong. Cheering the Governor teams on to victory were the officers and members or the Booster Club. The Booster Club officers for 1962 were—BOTTOM ROW: Treas. D. Kominiak, Sec. C. Bothwell. Vice- Pres. L. Williams. Pres. S. Krohman. TOP ROW: Sponsor Mr. Woolls, Sgt.-at-Arms R. Royer. C. Fausset, D. Bianucci, M. Moorehead, Sponsor Mr. Welte. Booster Club Promoting school spirit was a main objective of the Booster Club. The club inspired students to cheer their teams—football, bas¬ ketball, baseball—on to victory. For the first time in the history of the Mor¬ ton Booster Club, a cape section was organized un¬ der the guidance of Sue Krohman, president. Planning pep sessions and organizing cheering sections were important parts of the organizations activities. The club spon¬ sored buses to out-of-town games at Fort Wayne, La- Porte, and Hobart. Mem¬ bers of the club sold base¬ ball tags during the spring. Law And Spirit Inspired Students Lieutenants Secretary of Safety Rich Kozdras’s major duty was supervising the ' monitor lieutenants in maintaining law in the corridors during the school day. Monitors were stationed throughout the halls to keep order when classes were in ses¬ sion. The lieutenants sup¬ ervised the job of nine other monitors, kept the attendance for each hour, and helped people when the lieutenant’s assistance was needed. Monitors checked lockers, inspected passes of students in the halls, and issued court no¬ tices during the hour. Mon¬ itors acted as the enforce¬ ment body of the student court by reporting all vio¬ lators of school regulation. Enforcing law and order in the halls during all the periods of the day were the lieutenant moni¬ tors. Directing their monitors with the correct procedures were—BOTTOM ROW: L. Rosanswank. M. Moorehead, J. Balog, D. Davis. TOP ROW: M. Walsh, D, Dakin, B. Ridge. Page Forty-seven Assistants Gain Knowledge And Skill Office Assistants Aiding an important division of the school system, students assist regular office help. Assistants not only lend a hand to the regular employees but also acquire experience in general office rou¬ tines. These students are responsible for issuing tardy slips, collecting atten¬ dance sheets, running the mimeograph machines, and helping students seeking information. Through working in the office, students can see what the future holds for secretaries. Since most of the girls intend to become secretaries, this experience is very helpful to them. Stu¬ dents must maintain a 2.5 average or better if they wish to work in the of¬ fice for the school semester. During their free hours these high school students lend a helping hand in the school office. The assistants aid other students in the school when they are in need of information. Office helpers are—BOTTOM ROW: D. Spork, C. Fausset, P. Sonaty, L. Davis, J. Kirts, K. Shanta, B. Pruitt. TOP ROW: P. Opperman, G. Piekarczyk, B. Stryzinski, L. Swapt, K. Miller, S. Knaver, J. Bundy. M. Kicko. Booksto rc Assistants Gaining business exper¬ ience by selling school sup¬ plies in the bookstore, these students provide an invaluable service to the school. Having all neces¬ sary materials and a gen¬ erous supply of various paperback novels handy is a great convenience for both the students and the teachers. Novels, erasers, pencils, ink, and other necessary materials are some of the items that the helpers sell to the school students. The assistants must be capable, responsi¬ ble, and willing to give up their spare time. Selling school materials—folders, pencils, paper, rulers—to the junior and the senior high school is the main duty of these students. They gain experience • in the field of selling and the proce¬ dures of business. The helpers consist of students who are willing to work in the bookstore. Helpers are—BOTTOM ROW: C. Kackley, H. Kras, S. Thomas, D. Frye, J. Djenka, S. Reynolds, C. Evans, C. Ventrella. TOP ROW: L,. Stewart, C. Bothwell. S. Tuttle, C. Rice, L. Williams. L. Blair, R. Gentz. Page Forty-eight Through Service and Work in School Clinic Assistants Serving as aids to School Nurse Miss Gibson clinic helpers assist in running the clinic smoothly and efficiently. The majority of these students, who give up their study hall to serve in this capacity, are planning a career in either practical or general nursing. The helpers offer assistance each period in the clinic. These students join the Future Nurses Club in order to gain more knowledge and experience in the field of nursing. Caring for the sick is the main job of the school nurse and the clinic assis¬ tants. The assistants gain knowledge in the different types of bandages, symp¬ toms of colds or headaches, and how to help other people with broken bones. Library Assistants Library assistants give aid to those students who are not very familiar with the arrangement of the li¬ brary. These students gain a knowledge of the differ¬ ent classifications and fil¬ ing systems for books. They help other students open new worlds of know¬ ledge through books and magazines. The assistants are in charge of the library if the librarian leaves for a short time. Student li¬ brary assistants learned the library procedures. Gaining experience in office prac¬ tice and first aid are the girls who work in the clinic during the day. Under the guidance of Miss Gibson, school nurse, the helpers learn the new methods of detecting symptoms of illness. Assistants in the clinic are—K. Shirley, Miss Gibson, school nurse, C. Humphrey, P. Spudic, P. Ban- ovich, M. Ganchiff, B. Bobich. BETWEEN PARKED CARS Education is the most important reason for attend¬ ing school. At Morton this is clearly shown by the high standards set for the students to meet. The rea¬ sons why students continue to meet these standards are numerous: the teaching staff at MHS is one of the best to be found; all the members are required to meet certain qualifications; and the materials used in the school are being improved every day, enabling the students to have the opportunity to work with the best and most modern equipment. The spirit, “to learn as much as possible,” is one of the main reasons the students have accomplished such high goals. In whatever field a student may choose his career he has the chance to gain a solid foundation on which to start his future. If a student wants to attend col¬ lege he may gain entrance to the university of his choice by working hard and making a good record. If he is planning to work after graduation, Morton offers excellent courses in general business. Because Morton presents such a wide selection of elective courses, a student may take subjects for his own per¬ sonal enjoyment and benefit. Students have the opportunity to develop a strong background for the future by having a variety of excel¬ lent courses offered at Morton High School. Morton Is The Key to Academic Achievement Each New Day Provides Opportunities Students learn, over a period of time, that with each new day there are a number of fine opportuni¬ ties available to those who are willing to put forth the necessary effort to get them. Those who will strive to get ahead in the future strive now for good grades and excellent qual¬ ity in their class work. New friend ships are made, and more extracur¬ ricular activities are cre¬ ated each day. Activity begins about 8:15 A.M., when the first bell rings. From then on students can bq seen rushing to the bookstore for last minute items or hurrying to their next class, ready to learn. Guidance Helps To Promote Education Mr. Snadden checks senior college board scores. Schedules, program cards, and advice are all part of a counselor’s job. Each day in conferences with students or other teachers a counselor helps decide which pathway a student should take while in junior high and high school. New freshmen are shown around the school; sophomores are encouraged to push ahead on their studies and to take aptitude tests for the future; juniors are guided through PSAT and National Merit Scholarship testing; and seniors are given valuable career examinations such as College Boards and commercial aptitude tests for job placement. Mr. Chidester, freshman counselor, advises a new student on class schedules. Page Fifty-three English Inspires Cultural Awareness Morton’s English Department provides many opportunities for the student body to excell in their language. Students become acquainted with Julius Caesar, David Copperfield, spelling demons, and various English and American authors. Correct sentence structure, paragraph writing, and grammar are stressed dur¬ ing the four years of study. For graduation, three and one half years of English are required. English Literature is one of the electives offered by the English Deparment. This course puts emphasis on English authors and works. It also more clearly relates his¬ tory and literature. In the senior year, class writing is practiced, and The At¬ lantic Monthly is used as a supplement to the course. Closely connected with the English Department is the Speech Department. Through the efforts of this department the Morton debate teams have earned top honors in national competition. The English Literature course offers students a chance to study famous English works. Cheryl Bothwell, Ron Bocken and Larry Chance portray Macbeth. In Composition V students are required to write a theme about their future goals. Mary Baily and Don Havil seek career ideas. English IV students learn the basics of Roman life while studying Shakespear ' s classic, Julius Caesar. This miniature of Caesar ' s death scene was made last year by Mike Bradburn and Bridget Cernevski. Here Eugene Misner points out Brutus “the plotter” to Judy Govorchin while Susan Farkos listens intently. Page Fifly-four English Branches into Other Fields Speech class acquaints students with panel discussions and parliamentary pro¬ cedure as it is used in government. Dramatics, a new course at Morton, has won much acclaim from the Gover¬ nors. Acting methods and techniques which may be extremely helpful in col¬ lege or later life are studied. The class participates in skits, pantomimes, and many well known dramatic readings. Another course open to students who are good in English and have above average grades in Journalism. This elective course gives students the oppor¬ tunity to further their writing and spel¬ ling ability. TOP HAT and MORTON ITE staffs are chosen from the best stu¬ dents available so that top notch year¬ books and newspapers can be produced. Depicting a bus scene are Eddie Baker, Dave Mer¬ kel, Georgette Paulsin, Jim Beiriger, Pat Cole, and Ray Hawkins. The dramatics class performed skits, pantomimes, and dramatic readings. Through the window Mrs. Stock’s Journalism I students can be seen looking at various stories found in local newspapers. The class studies the numerous writing techniques necessary for the production of the Top Hat and the Mortoniie. Vocal expression is emphasized in the speech classes. Students learn to show emotions such as anger, sorrow, and humor. Don Dakin portrays anger while reciting " Mary Had a Little Lamb " as Ken Kessler, Jim Cook, Pat Dodd, and Carl Creekmore listen attentively. Students are taught to express pleasing vocal tones and physical expression to the fullest extent. Old And New Achtung! A familiar Ger¬ man phrase for German students who, for the third year, progress to build up the relatively new language class at Morton High. Be¬ sides the general study of the language itself, films and film strips are shown to familiarize the students with the people, German customs, and the country which claims the language students are learning to speak. The intense study of the German vocabulary, pro¬ nunciation, and gramma¬ tical construction has paid off for the students in having the satisfaction of learning the language well. Students have found that learning to speak the low, gruff tones of German can be difficult but rewarding. Improving their accents and tones by means of the tape recorder are first year German student’s Jo- elln Armstrong and Jim Bucko. Page Fifty-six Languages Are Discussed o o Latin students become acquainted with many customs of the Roman peo¬ ple, and although it is supposed to be a dead language many find Latin to be the basis for numerous words in lan¬ guages around the world. During their course of study, students are introduced to the many ideas on which the ancient Romans built their civilization. Descriptive pictures of these great people are often referred to throughout the Latin text. Students be¬ come acquainted with stories of true in¬ cidents of the time in which the Romans ruled the world, such as stories of the destruction of Pompei by Mount Vesu¬ vius. During the Christmas season stu¬ dents are enlightened about the way in which the Romans celebrated their holidays thousands of years ago. French, the language of one of the oldest countries in Europe, has been taught at Morton for two years now. The smooth flowing language reflects perfectly the holidays, street fairs, and customs enjoyed so very much by the French people. Definite national char¬ acteristics, such as French cooking and the general home life, are brought out in class discussions in which the students are re¬ quired to speak their new language. Conversations, transla¬ tions, and vocabulary building are the three main objectives for the first year. Customs and quizzes are also highlighted! ‘•Quelle est la date aujourd’hui?” which means " what is the date today " is one of the standard phrases asked of the French classes by Mrs. Hastings. Students are taught many everyday phrases From Latin El Camino Real, the test used by students learning to speak Spanish, transports its readers into the land of sleepy donkeys gay pinata parties, and rich, romantic traditions. The Spanish language, which is Based on the La¬ tin spoken by the ancient Romans, has become a popular subject at Morton. In the United States, students are taught Cast¬ ilian Spanish. During the first year, pupils learn the language basics for simple conversation; vocabulary study and grammatical constructions compose the subject matter. Students taking Spanish learn very early in the course the pro¬ per way in which to order Span¬ ish food. Making an attempt to use this knowledge are Franya Larkin, Linnea Furman and Gary Hackman, the waiter. Came French And Spanish New Era Offers More Challenges And Because science is rapid¬ ly becoming one of the most important courses in all high schools, Morton has expanded its science department to include courses in biology, physics, chemistry, health and. safe¬ ty, zoology and, this year, advanced chemistry. Biology is the extensive study of plants, animals, and humans. Physics, which requires math, is the study of radi¬ oactivity, light, density and weight, and sound. Chemistry is the study of all of the elements. Health and safety, a re¬ quirement for graduation, is concerned with the bod¬ ily functions and care. Zoology, offered to ad¬ vanced biology students, is the further s tudy of the animal kingdom. Advanced chemistry fur¬ thers study in the field of organic chemistry. Zoology students, Dean Wiese. Ken Mallette, Steve Davis, Ray Weber, and John Sheridan, dissect small sharks during lab period Page Fifty-eight Encourages Extended Sciences Study Collecting oxygen by displacement of water are Dennis Mierzwa, Barbara Seaman and Mary Ann Mayden. Students are taught the various methods of collecting the gaseous elements found in nature. Students also learn through lectures. Mr. Stout explains to Sue Krohman and Dennis Hepp the pur¬ pose of the air sacs and bronchial tubes in Health and Safety. Page Fifty-nine Social Studies Create New Interests Economic students concern themselves for a time with the intri¬ cacies of the stock market. Students are given " mythical money " In order that students may meet the demands Of our society for well-informed citizens, Morton now offers a complete social studies department. Fresh¬ men are instructed in world geography. Sophomores receive information on world events from a course in world history. Junior Mortonites further advance the knowledge of their own country through a two Because students must show what they have retained from their reading and lecturing periods, they are required to take tests regularly as in Mr. Nelson’s U.S. History class. with which to try their luck as buyers. Mr. Miller points out the best stocks to Joe Piekarczyk, Rick Fultz, and Nancy Bocken. semester course in U.S. History which this year offered a new outlook on old events with lectures given by both Mr. McClellan and Mr. Nelson. Sen¬ iors find much information in courses on government and economics. Included in the government course is a complete study of the Hammond city govern¬ ment and the way in which it operates. Students listen intently as Mr. Moorehead explains seme of the finer points in the study of government. Students Are Outstanding on Rebuttal Rebuttal, an educational program on channel 11, was the scene of and Stewart Lewin present their case during Morton’s first ap- the TV debates for high school competition. Here Paul Stivers pearance at the debates. In this debate the Governors placed first. Mathematics Has Stimulated Reasoning Mathematics, the basis for many modern day ca¬ reers, has in its recesses vast opportunities for any¬ one who dares to venture further. Morton offers classes for students in the academic or general cours¬ es. Included in the curricu¬ lum are general math, al¬ gebra, geometry, advanced algebra, trigonometry, and commercial math for sen¬ iors. General math is an ad¬ vanced course based on junior high math; algebra and geometry, college re¬ quirements, introduce en¬ tirely new ideas on math¬ ematical procedures. Senior trigonometry students, John Thieling, Pat Baldea, and Richard Kozdras discuss the many angles and parallel lines contained in this three dimensional figure. Business-Bound Students Look Ahead The commercial program includes courses of prac¬ tical value to all students. Included in the curriculum are typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, commercial math, salesmanship, gen¬ eral business, and filing. Most popular course is typing, since business- bound and college-bound students alike find it a vital skill. Next are short¬ hand and bookkeeping. Ac¬ tually, the entire program is popular, for students in all three courses of study are enrolled in commercial subjects. Since practical experi¬ ence is the focal point, pu¬ pils are encouraged to make work as accurate as possible, for accuracy and speed are important ob¬ jectives in the business world of today. Personal typing is usually taken as the beginning course for business-bound students or as a means for learning the basics of good typing for those who intend to go to college. To increase speed, regular timed writings are taken. Pat Pisowitz shows that fingers get tangled. Girls taking the beginning shorthand course find it to be almost like learning a whole new language. The dictation must be tran¬ scribed into shorthand symbols. Students must learn to be as swift as possible for businessmen always look for secretaries who are able to keep up with their speaking. Future office workers in all fields find clerical practice to be a most informative and useful subject in job hunting. Efficient machine operation is shown by Linda Petroff and Charlene McAtee. Page Sixty-three Home nursing, home management, and mechan¬ ical drawing are a few of thp practical arts courses offered at Morton each year. Home nursing teaches home and family care. Girls are taught to treat minor accidents, to care for babies, and, also, how to keep calm and what basic steps to take in the event of an emergency. In home management students learn the essen¬ tials of coping with the many problems found in the household. Girls learn how to budget money and how to spend according to that budget. In the advanced shop class Tom Wilson, Don Dakin, Mr. Concaldi, and Dennis Hepp look over one example of fine workmanship. Practical Arts Produce Special Talent Page Sixty-four Students Rush Home after 3:40 Bell ••The bell at last!

Page Sixty-f Morton Is The Key to Sportsmanship The title of the undefeated 1961 City Champs was earned by the MHS football team. In basketball the team did an equally good job of bringing home titles. The other fall and winter sports received their share of glory, also. When spring came the Governors came, too, with all the honors. But what does a good record really mean, and what goes in to making it? MHS athletes could tell anyone without any hesitation. It takes not only big or strong players but ones who know how to work hard and keep on working even though they are win¬ ning. They realize that it is one team ' playing against another, not one man against another. They have, more or less, a sixth sense for the game in which they are participating. These principles and other important things are taught to a player when he first starts out in sports at Morton. In order to learn to cooperate and play the game well, he must always practice the ideals of the team and firmly respect the meaning of teamwork. By participating in various sports at Morton, a player must have sportsmanship as his basic founda¬ tion. In any sport he soon finds out that it will win him a great deal more than a game—in later life he will be rewarded in many ways by the continued prac¬ tice of this same sportsmanship. Mighty Morton Governors Attain State These boys, by not losing a single game, achieved victory and brought fame to Morton High School. BOTTOM ROW: L. Fredricks, J. Parchem, C. Mickey, J. Perdew, S.

Minchuk, managers With inspiration and desire growing stronger each game, Morton’s gridmen racked up the best football record ever compiled by a Governor eleven. Under the spirited leadership of head coach Maurey Zlotnik and his assistants Bob Gollner, Nick Luketic and Jack Georgas, the Morton varsity completed a per¬ fect 1961 season with an action-packed nine win and no loss football record. With teamwork and timing on offense and ag¬ gressive playing on defense, the Governors finished the 1961 football season with a second place state rating. Led by a versatile group of ball-carriers, the Morton contingent rapidly developed as a threat to their opponents, both in passing and in running. The aerial attack was led by quarterback Ron Royer, who found sure-handed receivers in ends Bob Guzek and AlJ-Stater Jim Perdew. Prominent in the ground game were underclass halfback Mike Brad- burn and Dennis Palmer, both of whom were noted for their end sweeps. Leading the squad in scoring was All-State fullback Carl “Crazy Legs’’ Creek- more, whose 154 points bettered the old Calumet area record of Gary’s Tom Harmon. J. Hemingway and E. Rosenau.

Iorio, J. Pouch. D. Mierzwa, R. Arvay, B. Ferguson. W, Ruff, and manager D. Sharpe. Perdew and Creekmore were named to Indiana ' s all state team. Morton’s mobile offense rolled up a season’s total of 365 points which was second only to first ranked Evansville Reitz (368). The rugged Governor de¬ fense, led by the “bone-shattering” tackles of team captain Don Dakin, held all the opponents they encountered to a meager total of 35 points. Morton opened the season with a 53-0 runaway against city foe Hammond Clark. The gridmen cap¬ tured their second city win with a 49-14 romp over Hammond Tech. Journeying to Fort Wayne South- side, the Governors ground out a 7-D win. For their fourth triumph the Governors rolled over Whiting 41-0. The gridmen celebrated homecoming with a 33-7 victory over Bishop Noll. Coach Maurey Zlotnik’s crew recorded their sixth win and fourth shutout with the 45-0 conquest of East Chicago Roosevelt. The Governor’s trip to Frankfort proved to be a 52-7 success. After a rugged 19-7 contest with Hammond High, Morton claimed the city championship. The Governors ended their first perfect season by running Gary Tolleston off the field with a triumphant 66-0 score.

Page Sixty-nine Teamwork Was The Outstanding Merit in Carrying Coach Maurey Zlotnik off the field in jubilation after a triumph over East Chicago Roosevelt are Governor players Mike Bradburn, Jim Perdew, and Jim Stahura. This victory was the first time a Governor eleven had beaten the Rough Riders from East Chicago. Coach Maurey Zlotnik called this Morton win one of the most significant victories in his 10 years of varsity coaching at Morton. Roosevelt couldn ' t cope with the speed of the " pony backs” even though the game was played on the muddy turf. Precision Blocking, And Accurate Passing Gang tackling was displayed in the Governor’s contest with E. C. Roosevelt. Assisting on this tackle are Don Dakin. Ken •Chooch” Hyde and an unidentified Governor at the bottom. Team play such as this helped Morton gain its state prowess. The mighty Governor defense gained as much statewide praise as did the noted Morton High School football offense for an outstanding season. The explosive Morton offense was not only recognized throughout the state but also gained nation-wide recognition from the Scholastic Coach magazine. The magazine noted that Morton had an average of 317 yards per game and were fourth nationally in rushing offense. Also, by gaining 401 yards, the Gover¬ nors were rated seventh in the nation in total offense. The Governors displayed th6 power they were noted for in the homecoming game against Bishop Noll. Morton’s ag¬ gressive defense held the Warriors to a single touchdown while the Governor offense amassed a total of 33 points. The Governors, rolling in high gear with four successive victories, ground out a decisive triumph avenging the previous year’s defeat suffered at the hands of the Nollites. Defensive “blitzing” was an important part of the Governor defense. Here middle linebacker Bill Ferguson tries to bring down a Noll player. Soon to assist Ferguson are teammates Jim Stahura (50), Dennis Mierzwa (60) and Ken Kessler (35). Page Seventy-one Creekmore’s 154 Points Shatter Records All State Halfback and most valuable player senior Carl Creekmore heads for a touchdown despite the defiance of a Frankfort defen¬ sive man. Creekmore is an excellent example of the speed that the 1961 Morton gridmen possessed. Against this Southern foe Creekmore, fullback, scored three touchdowns on sweeping runs of 56, 44, and 35 yards. Carl was only one of the main cogs which the mighty Governors had this year. Without the cooperation of players the wheel would not have rolled. B-Team in football closed their season with a record of six wins and no losses. Although small in number, they showed through spirit that hard work does not often go unpaid. BOTTOM ROW: G.

Pattern Play Provides Exciting Results With valuable experience gained from the previous season’s play and the un¬ daunted leadership of Coach Joe De- Peugh, the 1962 squad rolled up a cred¬ itable record of 16-6. The Governors lose talented seniors Ron Bocken and Jim Perdew via grad¬ uation. Bocken was chosen captain of last year’s squad and was named M.V.P. for this year. Ron was also named on the honorable mention list of the Lake County all-star team. Perdew snared 156 rebounds for the second best total on the team and has started every game the last two years.

Senators, but the matmen suffered their first defeat at Thorn¬ ton Fractional South, 20- 19. The Governors bounced back at the expense of their Portage opponents, with a 40-6 triumph.

Page Eighty-nine Morion Is The Key to Companionship High school is a student body working for the same goal—a good secondary education. More than twelve hundred Governors are enrolled at Morton. They are not merely going from one class to another in a simple existence; they have a way of life which is centered around the school that they attend five days a week. Here is a world of their own—people of their own age, people with the same interests. As students walk from class to class, they meet old and new friends. The every-day things are essential parts of this life: the certain someone who walks you to the fifth hour English class on the third floor; the faithful morning meetings in front of the locker bays to hear any new gossip; and students who are pour¬ ing over a text book at the Student Center for a test next hour. These times and many other every day occurences like these make up a normal high school life with times and friends no one will ever forget because of the many life long friendships which will be formed in this life. At Morton, as at any other school, true friendship is a cherished thing. All the friendships and the peo¬ ple comprising these friendships make a school what it is. This opportunity is the reason one can look at the students of MHS and realize why it has grown in prestige so rapidly in only a few years. Seniors Reflect with Fond Memories Seniors will always cherish the memories of years gone past. Ever since they can remember, they have been customers of the local pizza house and hamburger palace. The girls never spent their lunch hours eating but painting “good luck” signs for the team. Senior open houses are not a part of school curriculum but they are con¬ sidered equally important because most of the time is spent reminiscing over the past years. The Prom, a climax to every sen¬ ior’s high school career, is a vivid memory that will long linger as a wonderful farewell tribute to the class of 1962. Tears flowed and laughs bubbled as seniors congratulated one another on having “made it” after Commence¬ ment.

P ge One Hundred Eight A Year That Seniors Will Remember Sadly these seniors, Linda Petroff and Eileen Ritthaler, see their high school lives coming to a close. This was the last year that they would be able to attend the various activities as MHS stu¬ dents. 1962 was the year of having cola and pizza parties and dropping in at the numerous open houses. These fond recollections will long linger in the minds of the graduating seniors. Page One Hundred Morton Juniors Prepare To Accept Morton’s juniors expres¬ sed their goals in every¬ thing they accomplished during the school year. Hours at Morton were filled with study. Every class was an im¬ portant part of the day and helped shape the lives of these Governors. The completion of term papers, notebooks, and themes helped to build their fu¬ ture as seniors and tomor¬ row’s citizens. Thus, with each passing day they grew closer to attaining the desired goals for their future life and education.

They discovered they had let many activi¬ ties go unnoticed during their freshmen year. They had more time for sports, dances, and clubs, having learned how to study in their freshman year. With the help of the sophomore counselors these prospective juniors select¬ ed courses and prepared for their chosen careers. This year’s sophomore class chose Dan Johnston as President.

Looking up to a tall senior, Norm Houser, is Doreen Bianucci. Locker stuffing is an old fad at Morton High School. The idea is to see just how much pupils can fit into the four foot by one foot cubical called a locker. When two or three share a locker the job of stuffing becomes easier. Most of the Morton students are forced to share a locker. One might be surprised by the articles found in a locker—a red sneaker and white sneaker, both for the left foot, a four day old lunch and a change of clothes are just a few. Occasionally a person gets stuffed into a locker, but this is not regular practice. Fitting one more book into this locker is Charleen Adams as her partners Janet Bales and Judy Janssen watch. Page One Hundred Twenty Morton Freshmen Set High Standards With a world of new ex¬ periences awaiting them, the freshmen began their four years of study at Morton. Even though the “freshies” received the traditional teasing, they soon fell into the scheme of school activities, join¬ ing clubs, having parties, and attending athletic events. They elected offi¬ cers, paid class dues, adop¬ ted new languages, and studied laboriously. The most important part of their freshman year, though, was establishing the goals they would fol¬ low throughout life. Serving as freshman class officers are President Nancy Creekmore, Secretary-Treasurer Sandy Dun¬ can. Vice President Judy Jeneske.

MHS Bids Farewell to Mr. Clark Principal Albert W. Clark, who has seen two generations of Governors tread Morton’s halls, an¬ nounced during the 1961-62 school year that he would retire at the end of the summer school session. Mr. Clark became the principal of Morton in 1942 after coming directly from a similar job at Columbia School. In referring to his work, Mr. Clark commented, “No one could ever work in a finer community. The parents have been cooperative; the students, respectful.” In 1924 Mr. Clark started teaching at Columbia. Before this time he taught in Boone County Schools for two years and in Kentland for one year. Principal Clark started his college education at Central Normal College, where he majored in social studies for his B.A. degree. At Butler University Mr. Clark did post-graduate work in school administra¬ tion for his master’s degree. The organizations he has been affiliated with are numerous. Mr. Clark was Character and Spiritual Education Chairman of the Indiana Congress of Par¬ ents and Teachers. He was chairman of the First Methodist Church building committee when that church instituted its new structure. He has been a member of many of the National Education Associations.

Newkirk On January 10, ' 1962, the students and faculty of Morton felt the loss of a fine social studies teacher, Robert D. Newkirk. Mr. Newkirk suffered of neph¬ ritis and was hospitalized for some time before his death. Mr. Newkirk was a graduate of Ball State Teach¬ ers’ College and in his fifth year of teaching at Mor¬ ton. He was co-sponsor of the H i-Y and aided in athletic affairs during the football and basketball seasons. The M.H.S. Governors contributed towards buying a $600 bond for his daughter Susan.

Page One Hundred Thirty-four They Deserve Admiration from Many Office Staff Efficiency is the word that best describes Mor¬ ton’s office workers. A var¬ iety of tasks keeps them busy during the week. Stu¬ dents and even teachers would be amazed at the extent of their responsibil¬ ities. When teachers are ill or unable to be at school, the office workers phone sub¬ stitutes, making sure each class is supervised during the teacher’s absence. When tests such as the National Education Devel¬ opment Tests are given, Mrs. Reynolds collects the money for these tests. Cafeteria Staff Page One Hundred Thirty-five The members of the cafeteria staff give the stu¬ dents an opportunity to obtain well-balanced lunch¬ es. Tasty lunches are serv¬ ed to the hungry Gover¬ nors during the fourth, fifth, and sixth lunch hours daily. Since the govern¬ ment gives aid to the cafe¬ teria, adequate lunches are served to the students at a nominal cost. Even dur¬ ing irregular school days, like final exams, the cafe¬ teria staff has fine meals prepared for the students. The state pays part of the cost of the milk so that the students can buy the milk at a low price. Morton Is The Key to Patronage It has been proven that the teenagers are the big¬ gest customers in the country. For this reason the local merchants have put advertising in this book. Many feel that an ad in this book is more of a donation than advertising. This is very contrary to fact. It is one of the best methods of advertising. An ad in the TOP HAT, unlike one in a newspaper, is a permanent rec¬ ord of the qualities of the business, address, telephone number, and even the hours. Selling advertising to the businesses develops a strong relationship between the school and the com¬ munity. It is desirable to have this type of relation¬ ship because the students of Morton will one day be part of this community. By attaining this relationship now the students will have a better understanding of the functions of the community. Morton is greatly esteemed to have the merchants select our book as a source of presenting themselves to their customers. The TOP HAT gives to the students the opportun¬ ity to actually go out into the business world; in this world the students encounter the practice of competition in this community. Having this relationship between patrons and school has enabled the students to have the high rank¬ ing yearbook they are entitled to have.

Some are gaining knowledge and experience in spe¬ cial trades to become journeyman machinists, car¬ penters or electricians . . . some are concentrating on certain phases of steelmaking by working in the open hearth shops, the cold rolling mills or the galvanizing lines. Still others are working in laboratories building a sound foundation for a future in steel research. Inland offers the high school graduate an excellent opportunity to further his education. Employees may participate in a variety of on-the-job training pro¬ grams, or they can continue their formal education by registering for evening courses offered by local Purdue and Indiana University Extension Centers.

Employment Division ►3 3113 Block Avenue East Chicago, Indiana Page One Hundred Fifty-nine uSL go; OUp- 1962 Top Hat Dear Governors: A yearbook is not made in a day, as the members 1962 TOP HAT soon found out. Teamwork was a vital element in the production of the book and was practiced daily by the staff. This yearbook was not made by one person nor a whole staff of people; it was made by you, the student. The book merely records one year of your attendance at Morton High School. Through the guidance of Mrs. Stock and her unfailing patience, the staff put together the past year’s events which were the many wonderful things achieved at MHS. The Photo Club, supervised by J. H. Rasmussen, captured in pictures the Morton students in action. Under all conditions, such as in bad weather, after school, or during a lunch hour, the photographers would seek out the places and people specified on the TOP HAT picture orders and fulfill instructions. Getting blamed for all the mistakes was our printer, Emerson DeLaney, who realized many of these were our own and aided us in correcting them. He also permitted us to hold several of the pages until the last minute so we could record the recent occurences in sports and social activities. Teachers and the administration had to suffer many inconveniences. Their classes were interrupted for information or it was necessary for students to leave class to have pictures taken. In the office the daily routine was many times delayed while pictures were taken or the spelling of a name was found. The staff members have given a great deal of their time and energy to prepare this book. The busi¬ ness staff made nearly $2400 from the sale of advertising and over $4000 from the sale of books—the most ever collected on yearbook sales at MHS. To all the others that have given their assistance to the production of the TOP HAT I would like to extend my greatest appreciation for your services. I hope that you have gained as much joy from working on the book as energy you have given. I am very proud to present the 1962 TOP HAT, and I wish to congratulate the staff members for their very fine achievement. Sincerely, Sue Ann Dorman Staff Members Editor .
