Volume XI Top Hat • isxs 4t Oliver Perry Morton High School “JJo, Q°i Hammond, Indiana 1 A YEAR AT THE MANSION This is Morton High School — a red brick building filled each day with busy, hurrying teenagers. Its classrooms are small worlds where young minds are enriched and expanded. Its teachers are moderators in an exchange of ideas. Its 1800 students, called the Governors, seek to achieve the highest goals in life. Morton is not merely an address or a structure. It is a Mansion where knowledge and learning are stressed, where the noblest of human ideals are taught. Here at Morton each Governor plays an active part in building an idea — Morton High School is the Governors ' Mansion. THE NATION’S FLAG, waving in the the wind in front of the school, greets Morton Governors, reminding them daily of the importance of America’s democratic ideals. MORTON’S “BEATLES,” alias the Vi-Kings, donned wigs and entertained Beatle-style at the benefit assembly held by the Government Club for its orphan, Kim Chun Yung. Activities at Morton Morton High School has a unique personality, a warm and friendly glow created by its students. To the Governors, Morton is not an " institution. " MHS is more like an idea, a frame of mind, or a way of life. Morton can be a greeting between two old friends, bustling basketball games or pep sessions. Morton is final exams overstuffed lockers, student campaigns, play rehearsals and hectic speech meets. Morton means building a Homecoming float, attending the Prom, visiting the nation ' s capitol, and becoming a part of " Beatle-mania. " Morton is the laughter of Senior Week and a tearful graduation on a sunny June afternoon. All these things lend a sparkling personality to the Governors ' school—an atmosphere that makes every year special, one worth living and reliving at the Governors ' Mansion. 4 THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT, visited by upperclass¬ men in October on Morton’s annual Washington trip, stands illuminated in the glow of spotlights after dark. BUS TRIPS to away football games highlighted the fall at Morton. Here Judy Jenjeske and Lynn Blackman help decorate the Booster Club pus to Fort Wayne. Blend Into Mansion’s Own Bright Personality “OUR TEAM IS BACK.” sing the senior girls at the annual pep session before the first football game. Up¬ perclassmen presented skits to arouse school spirit for the upcoming season.

His Cab¬ inet consisted of — Secretary of Justice Bob Van Gorp, Secretary of Student Em¬ ployment Russ Barron, Sec¬ retary of Assemblies Ramona Crowe, Secretary of the Stu¬ dent Center Bob Mitchell, Secretary of the Treasury Fran Vintilla, Secretary of Safety Gary Dietrich. 1964 for the Student Association began with the traditional, stirring Inaugural Assem¬ bly, in which the main officers of the Associ¬ ation were sworn in alongside the Congress and Court. Association President Willie Ruff was sworn into office by Principal W. Winston Becker at the inauguration held on Novem¬ ber 22, 1963. After delivering his inaugural address, Willie administered the oath of office to Vice-President Ricky Tyler, Recorder Dor¬ een Bianucci, and the Cabinet and Congress. Willie’s Cabinet members then outlined their official goals in acceptance speeches. Bob Van Gorp, Chief Justice of the Student Court, swore in his judges and recorders. Finally, the entire student body repeated the Morton stu¬ dent’s pledge led by the new president. 8 ACCEPTING the Top Hat and Tails, symbols of the dignity and importance of his office, Willie Ruff is congratulated by Principal Winston W. Becker. Launched New Year at the Governors’ Mansion The Student Association’s Inaugural Ball, Moonglow, was presented this year on Novem¬ ber 28, 1963, at St. Michael’s Hall in Ham¬ mond, in honor of the newly installed officers of Morton’s student government. First semi-formal dance of the year, the annual ball is open to all four classes. Given each year on Thanksgiving Eve, the affair is a highlight of the social season at Morton and offers students a chance to enjoy a relaxing evening while supporting their government. The three Student Association officers greeted their guests for the ball at the door and then walked out onto the dance floor to lead off the traditional Association dance. The Cabinet, Court, and Congress also danced to the song reserved for Association members. THANKSGIVING EVE couples danced to dreamy tunes at the Inaugural Ball in Hammond at St. Michael’s Hall. DANCE MUSIC provided by Tony Marterie and his band added to the enjoyment of the evening for all. The mellow tones of the trumpet filled the hall with an appropriately romantic atmosphere as couples relaxed on the sidelines at the Inaugural Ball. 9 Fine Arts Hold High Position at Morton; SHAKING HIS FINGER at Barnaby (Don Jamison), Babes in Toyland’s “executioner” Gonborgo (Ron Lohse) prepares for a customer — Barnaby’s nephew. “MY MONEY IS SAFE, where no one can find it,” declares Mrs. Savage (Kris Tenkely) to Fairy Mae (Kitty Bjork- lund) in The Curious Savage. (The money was in the stuf¬ fed bear on her lap.) Strange things occurred in the three-act comedy, The Curious Savage, presented on November 1 and 2 under the direction of Mr. ' Donn Edwards. The play involved a certain Mrs. Savage in a senes of events at the Clois¬ ters Asylum. Mrs. Savage was committed to the Cloisters after she refused to reveal where she had hidden her bonds from her greedy children. Following a wild goose chase, her family found the bonds hidden in Mrs. Sav¬ age’s huge teddy bear. Through the efforts of the dramatics and musical departments, Babes in Toyland was presented on February 27-29. The story began as Barnaby, a wicked old miser, forced the beautiful Contrary Mary to consent to marry him. In desperation Mary ran away to Toy- land with Barnaby’s nephew Alan, whom she loved. Barnaby set out after them, intending to get rid of Alan once and for all. After a hot chase and many close calls, Alan and Mary triumphed over their pursuer. “DID YOU TAKE THE BONDS?” asks Dr. Emmett (Charley Thompson) of Mrs. Paddy (Lu Czarnecki), who ignores his plea. Titus Sav¬ age (Harry Shock) urges her to reveal the whereabouts of Mrs. Savage’s hidden money. Pat Spudic and Don Jamison watch anxiously. 10 Plays and Musical Received Praise of Governors THE MASTER TOYMAKER (Jim Clauson) kneels among the Piper children and wel¬ comes them to the joys of the famous Toyland. Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew was presented by the Morton Drama Department on May 1 and 2, 1964, to com¬ memorate the 400th Anniversary of Shake¬ speare’s Birth. The story of the play centered on Kath- erina, the foul-tempered daughter of Baptista, a gentleman of Padua, Italy. Katherina, com¬ monly known as the “Shrew,” was notoriously independent. Kate’s younger sister decreed their father could not be wooed or wed until Katherina had found a mate. Sweet Bianca’s many suitors were desperate for someone to marry the undesirable Kate, but no one could be found. Finally, the boisterous, carefree Petruchio appeared. In the market for a rich wife, he promptly agreed to many Kate “sight unseen.” Kate objected fiercely to being “sold” like a commodity, but her arguments were of no avail; she was to be wed as soon as pos¬ sible. Her groom, however, arrived at the wed¬ ding in rags, and began his campaign to “tame” his shrew. She finally fell in love and settled down, properly “tamed.” FITTING COSTUMES for the spring play, Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, are Nancy Chamberlain, Linda Herring, and Don Irvin. 11 As Grads Arrived for Homecoming, Morton Presented SENIOR CLASS members, waiting for the parade to be¬ gin, review the last hectic week before Homecoming. The theme for the senior float was “Excruciate those Warriors,” in “honor” of Bishop Noll’s football team. REIGNING AT THE HOMECOMING dance was a thrilling occasion for seven Morton senior girls. The Court consisted of Micki McGinnis, Karen Shanta, Ramona Crowe, Queen Doreen Bianucci, Jeanette Bundy, Francene Vintilla, and Barbara Gallimore. 12 Traditional Bonfire, Parade, Crowning of Queen To begin Homecoming activities for 1963, the Morton Governors held an assembly to introduce the queen candidates to the student body. The annual Thursday night bonfire sparked some of that “o Y Morton spirit.” Weeks beforehand Morton juniors and seniors began building floats to represent their classes in the Homecoming parade. The B-team and Varsity cheerleaders also made a float for the parade. Queen candidates rode to Hammond High field accompanied by other Morton students in brightly “streamered” cars. The Queen, Doreen Bianucci, and her court were honored at the Homecoming dance held at the National Guard Armory after the game where the Vikings entertained. ADDING FINAL TOUCHES to the junior float are mem¬ bers of the junior class. Juniors and seniors worked weeks before Homecoming planning for the “big night.” HOMECOMING EVE Governors lit the traditional bonfire behind the school. A blazing fire set the stage for lively cheers, skits, and a dance on the blacktop. 13 Governors Work Together to Present Entertaining PERFORMING WITH THEIR MELODIOUS BELLS in assembly are the Spartan Bell Ring¬ ers from Michigan State University. The group played a number of classical, folk, and popular tunes with their 49 handbells, each member controlling up to 13 bells at one time. Water pistols, bell-ringers, debaters, and choral groups all had parts in Morton’s 1964 assembly schedule. Fall pep assemblies, fea¬ turing cheers, skits and a pep band, loudly proclaimed Morton’s loyalty to its team. The annual Dress-Right Assembly, held in Octo¬ ber, exemplified correct attire for high school students by contrasting proper dress with im¬ proper dress. The Kim Chun Yung assembly, sponsored by the Government Club, raised funds for Morton’s orphan. Students “forc¬ ibly” collected offerings from the audience, using verbal “lashings” and water pistols.. The Inaugural and the State of the Associa¬ tion Assemblies informed students of con¬ gressional affairs. For Thanksgiving, Christ¬ mas, and Easter, the music department pre¬ sented holiday programs. Not only for pur¬ poses of education and entertainment, assem¬ blies gave Governors an opportunity to work together for the construction and organization of programs for the student body. DEBATING whether the sale of cigarettes should be made illegal are varsity debaters Helen Holsclaw and Bob Mitchell. This as¬ sembly was a practice for the debate team’s appearance on the CBS show “Rebuttal.” and Educational Assemblies for Student Body THE DRESS-RIGHT AS¬ SEMBLY featured students modeling both the correct and incorrect attire for sports, school, and church. Proper dress for Morton’s formal and semi-formal events was shown to the stu¬ dents in the auditorium. SINGING AT THE EASTER ASSEMBLY is the Morton choir. The entire music department participated in many of the musical assemblies during the school year. POSING AS KIM CHUN YUNG, Larry Les- sie arriv es from Korea to join the fun at the assembly held to raise money for his support. Escorting him on stage is his “nurse,” Tom Hopman, who “takes care” of Kim. 15 THE CAPITOL building, home of our federal legislature, was an im¬ pressive sight for Governors. IWO JIMA MEMORIAL, honoring America’s soldiers, was visited by traveling Governors. LINCOLN MEMORIAL, world- famous for its statue of Lincoln, was one of many stops. Washington Trip Granted Fascinating Greenwich Village, turbulent Chinatown, and the world-famous Bowery were included in the sights visited by 365 Hammond students on this year’s New York- Washington Trip. Setting out on Tuesday night, October 22, students eagerly anticipated the seven-day tour. Wednesday evening the train arrived in New Jersey where excited teenagers disem¬ barked and piled into the waiting buses that would take them to their hotel near New York’s Times Square. Thursday and Friday, students visited the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and United Nations Building. Friday evening saw the end of the stay in New York as the “trippers” left by train for Washington, D.C. In Washington students got a first-hand view of the various government buildings and historical monuments. Tours of the White House, Capitol Building, and Arlington Na¬ tional Cemetery highlighted their stay in the capital city of the nation. During a busy Sunday students began to realize that their vacation was rapidly coming to an end. Returning home on the train that night, students slept or chatted, feeling almost exhausted after their seven hectic days. Governors A Recess From THE U.N. BUILDING, the center of international affairs and a symbol of world peace, was toured by Morton students in New York this fall during the annual Washington Trip. 16 WAITING PATIENTLY to see their counselor, these stu¬ dents typify Governors at the beginning of each semester, when schedules often must be changed at the last moment. “DON’T BE GREEDY,” Nancy Creekmore seems to be say¬ ing to hunrgy Governors Bob Zimmerman and Kenny Bock- en at a bake sale as the boys divide “the spoils of war.” Daily Homework, Clockwatching, and Standing in Line School days at Morton in 1964 were not spent entirely in the classroom. Governors gave much of their time to the everyday rat race of high school existence. Mad dashes against the clock often resulted in tardiness and standing in line in the office for an admit. Governors found themselves in many other lines, too — at the bookstore, cafeteria, and counselors’ offices. Organizations involved many Governors in extra-curricular activities, even though stag¬ gered student schedules made it difficult for many to attend meetings after eighth hour. Bake sales, a popular means of raising money, were numerous and welcome. As stu¬ dents left the building, they could purchase cookies or cake to nibble on the way home. All in all, the school year was a well- rounded one at Morton — in school and out. DEMONSTRATING the proper technique for opening lock¬ ers, senior Tom Hopman gives his locker a “love pat.” Frosh Jim Pruitt and Linda Sorbello watch for pointers. 17 A PAUSE from the dance floor at the Winter Formal for some icy ipunch provides Micki McGinnis, Toni Oros, Rich Love, Jeanne Rose, and Jay Summers with a moment to relax and socialize. Welcome Change In Pace Found For Students RELAXING for a few mo¬ ments, Ralph Rhodes, Kris Houser, Bob Mitchell, and Paula Rosenau sit around decorated tables, talking and enjoying their refreshments at this year’s Winter Formal. Attending the Winter Formal, Junior - Senior Prom GATHERED AROUND the band box, Prom couples par¬ ticipate in the delightful en¬ tertainment provided by the Pat DeMure Band. The Winter Formal, “Cupid’s Cotillion,” held on February 15 at St. John’s Panel Room, provided a delightful evening for Morton stu¬ dents. Music furnished by the Vi-Kings, plus the sparkling decoration, added to the en¬ chantment of the evening. This eagerly await¬ ed event was sponsored by the Governmnt Club to support Kim Chun Yung, Morton’s Korean orphan. The 1964 Prom, “Sea Mist,” held on May 23 at St. Michael’s Hall, was the climax of the senior year. The elaborately decorated hall created a dreamy atmosphere. Entertainment for this memorable evening was provided by vocalist and trumpet player Pat DeMure. The juniors and seniors also danced to the enchant¬ ing music of the Don Carone Orchestra at the After-Prom Party held at the Woodmar Coun¬ try Club. Vocalist Ronnie Rice and the Dru- Vells also entertained. The After Prom-Party wasn’t the finale for many attending the Prom. Many students served “brunches” the morning after the Prom. These were followed by out¬ ings to the beach or an amusement park. The exciting weekend came to an end all to soon. SENIOR GIRLS, Janet Bales, Rita Sherer, Pam Opperman, and Betty Sasse spent much of their time rehearsing par¬ odies of popular songs per¬ taining to Morton and grad¬ uation. The girls provided amusing and sentimental en¬ tertainment at the Senior Banquet held in April. Seniors Bid Governor’s Mansion Good-Bye As Senior Week approached, Morton sen¬ iors realized that their high school days were coming to a close. This last week marked the end of a way of life. The Sr. Executive Board helped the sen¬ iors make arrangements for many activities throughout the year. Each Wednesday, seniors wore their brown and beige “cords”. Friends’ signatures or “Nom de Plumes,” and crazy drawings were marked on the cords. Seniors worked diligently to help make a success of the spring play, Taming of the Shrew. The Senior Banquet was held at a local restaurant on April 28. The humorous Class Will and Prophecy was read there. The prom, which was one of the highlights to the senior year, was given by the Junior Class for seniors. The last week of the school year was one of the most fun-filled but probably one of the saddest weeks for seniors. For each day of the week, seniors wore special clothes — ber- mudas, clashing clothes and kindergarten out¬ fits. Monday an unusual quiet fell over the school because seniors were doomed to silence. The final day of the year seniors dressed in their best proving they were really grown up. KINDERGARTEN DAY SILENCE DAY BERMUDA DAY CLASH DAY DRESS-UP DAY Micki McGinnis Bob Mitchell Larry Lessie Judy McAleer Doreen Bianucci GRADUATING students gathered at the Civic Cen¬ ter for commencement ex¬ ercises on June 10. Dean D. F. Berkley, from Indiana University, was the speaker for the ceremony. With Arrival of Spring Fever, Senior Week June 7 and June 10 were two of the most important days in the lives of Morton seniors; their high school careers were brought to a close after Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremonies. Traditionally, blue caps and gowns were worn proudly as seniors partici¬ pated in graduation exercises held at the Civic Center. Faces beamed with pride and joy as seniors received their diplomas, Those “im¬ portant papers” were cherished by all who passed from Morton’s halls. Seniors realized that four of the best years of their life were now passed, but they will always be remem¬ bered as years of personal growth. STUDENTS BEGIN a new life as they leave the Civic Cen¬ ter after Commencement exercises. Following the ceremony, students attended parties to celebrate the occasion. Hlllllllllllllllilllllllllllll X he purpose of every school is to educate. The school Morton fulfills that purpose. There are few better places at which to be educated than at Morton, a school that holds the highest standards of scholarship. Each day Morton leads its students into a world of new things, a world where one can travel the globe by learning, a constantly changing and challenging world, re-formed daily by current events. Morton ' s faculty is of the best quality, and so are the students. They help make Morton what it is—the Governors ' Mansion. 23 Governors Explore Mysteries ENGLISH LITERATURE students Eugene Misner, Judy Reeves, and Sherman Waring act out a scene from “A Man for All Seasons,” a play studied in Mrs. Moylan’s class. English, “ye olde language,” is studied for at least seven semesters by all Morton stu¬ dents before they graduate. Through the ex¬ ploration of our intricate language, Governors increase their ability to comprehend and ab¬ sorb the knowledge made available to them. Freshmen study basic grammar and com¬ position skills. They usually read, as a class, one novel per semester along with individual book reports each six weeks. Since this pro¬ gram of study is continued into the sophomore year, books such as David Copperfield, Ivan- hoe, and A Tale of Two Cities add to the store of literary knowledge of underclassmen. Semester courses in composition and American literature are taken by juniors at Morton. Comp. V teaches juniors to express themselves in clear, concise English. American Literature VI provides students with a work¬ able knowledge of the great American authors and their works. Some seniors take another full year of composition while others elect to divide their last year between composition and English literature. In this last semester of composition, “The Atlantic Monthly’ is a teaching aid. RESEARCH PAPERS present a great scholastic obstacle for junors in Composition V. George Bewley uses the library’s sources to begin work on a term paper for his class. HISTORY AND ADVENTURE come alive for freshmen English students through the pages of books. Dave Mustoe and Diane Burke discuss their latest literary “venture.” “Ye Olde Language” Through Recitation, Composition Speech and journalism are “extra” courses offered to Governors by the. English department; not required for graduation, they are electives taken by students interested in these fields as vocations or hobbies. First and second semester speech students study the various types of orations — such as extemporaneous speaking, “heckle” speeches, and after-dinner talks. A unit on parliament¬ ary procedure is also included in the course. Journalism students soon became familiar with the many sections of the daily news¬ paper. They leam to recognize feature stories and “yellow journalism.” “Datelines,” “mast¬ heads,” and “by-lines” quickly become com¬ monplace terms. Students taking journalism likewise try their hand at writing news stories and editorials. Most journalism students even¬ tually take positions on either publication. SPEECH STUDENTS, often called upon to give demonstra¬ tions, use varied props to help carry their points across. Ellen Hawking displays a top hat for emphasis. “PEEK-A-BOO,” Carla Frye seems to be saying as she clips a newspaper article for journalism class. Journalism students, required to cut out and study newspaper stories, at times must search through mountains of newsprint to find just the right article for class. 25 SCHNELWITCHEN, better known as Snow White, is translated by Mr. Jordan’s third year German class while second year students work on class assignme nts. Governors Become Familiar With Other Countries Language study is an integral part of the curriculum at Morton. Through development of the linguistic arts, Governors gain a better understanding of the world around them. A detailed study of grammar and vo¬ cabulary enables German students to “de¬ cipher” stories, novels and fairy tales in Ger¬ man. In third year Geman, offered for the first time this year, students exercise their know¬ ledge of the language through translation and conversation, dictation and memorization. “Magister Ruff” (alias Mr. Ruff, Latin teacher) assigns daily drills in vocabulary and grammar. The “dead language” takes second year students back to ancient Rome, where they follow the adventures of two young boys, and also to the great battle fields where Caesar fought the Gallic Wars. “X” marks the spot where a Latin student must stand if his recitation cannot be heard. In the front of the room the soft-spoken stu¬ dent finishes his translation. A trip to “Si¬ beria”, the corner of the room, is the fate of the student who talks too much. MR. RUFF’S FAMOUS GRIN and “violin” sign confront Jerry Bogner as he receives the results of his Latin exam. THE TAPE RECORDER is used to improve their French conversations by third year students Sue Zaher, Marcel Zlotnik, Sue Cutler, Phyllis Chrisney, Jenny Houchin, Judy Jeneske, Ruth Ann Baxley, and David Ellison, under the direction of Mrs. Hastings, their teacher. Through Study of Foreign Customs and Languages FIRST YEAR SPANISH STUDENT Pamela Scott is helped with her pronunciation by her teacher, Mr. Baker, and third year students Madeline Barabas and John Gerovac. Entering the Spanish and French classes takes one into a world completely apart from that in Morton’s other rooms. Here only the respective foreign language is spoken, en¬ couraging the growth of proficiency in the students through example and repetition. First year Spanish students receive in¬ struction in Spanish grammar and vocabulary, then learn to write compositions in Spanish and translate Spanish stories. “La Luz,” a Spanish newspaper, often supplements books such as Gil Bias. The second year of Spanish, a more detailed study, may be followed by a third course, offered for the first time this past year to Morton students. The “sound of music” resounds almost daily in the French room. Students’ grammar and vocabulary study is enhanced by the sing¬ ing of French songs, accompanied by a tape recorder. The recorder, as well as a “home¬ made” language lab, is used to help students better their conversational French. For those students who wish to obtain a more exact knowledge of the “international language,” a third year is now offered. 27 Laboratory Experiments Highlight Physical Sciences PHYSICS STUDENTS Russ Barron, Bill Rakos, and Er¬ nest Rosenau seem to be en¬ joying their work on an electricity experiment. Physical sciences of chemistry and phy¬ sics enable Morton students to become ac¬ quainted with almost everything from chem¬ ical bonding and atomic energy to crystal structures and electroplating. Physics students study forces and energy and experiment with simple machines and electrical currents. During the year, students are given “unknowns,” which they must iden¬ tify by physical properties such as volume, density, and specific gravity. Projects con¬ cerning light, heat, and sound are also in¬ cluded in the course. Lab periods pay off in many ways for chemistry students; besides burning their fingers and melting the paint on the lab coun¬ ters, they find that experimental data most often coincides with the chemical theory stud¬ ied in their textbooks. A general study of elements, compounds, mixtures, and chemical reactions is included in both Chemistry V and VI. Also, a semester of advanced chemistry is open to students completing the first year. CONCENTRATING on an experiment in electroplating are chemistry students Jim Bucko and Frank McCay. STUDYING THE HUMAN BODY is an important part of zoology. Alice Reichardt and Terry Mears learn the parts of the human hand with the help of a “friend.” HEALTH AND SAFETY student Harold Goodwin studies the parts of the body with the help of “Hector.” However, he seems to think that the lungs are found in the ab¬ dominal cavity of the dummy. Study of Life Sciences Varies from Algae to Zoology To meet the ever-growing demand for biological scientists, Morton offers courses in biology, zoology, and health and safety. Students taking health and safety, a course required for graduation, study the var¬ ious aspects of personal health and the func¬ tions and structure of the human body. One year of science is needed for grad¬ uation, and most Morton students elect to ful¬ fill this requirement with biology. While studying the “science of life,” students col¬ lect and classify insects and dissect every¬ thing from carrots to frogs and earthworms. A course in zoology is offered to thosei students who have successfully completed a year of biology. Zoology students, in studying the more complicated forms of life, dissect sharks and cats and other creatures. ALL BIOLOGY STUDENTS must have a practical knowledge of laboratory specimens. Judy Janssen, Jeanne Sankowski, and Sue Means learn with a microscope and a worm. Social Studies Bring the World to Morton, Economics students soon become familiar with financial up’s and down’s and how gov¬ ernment spending and the national debt affect their daily lives. They study inflation and de¬ flation and learn that the value of one dollar is really about forty-two cents. The various types of government from dictatorships to democracy furnish Morton students with much food for thought. The study of republics and totalitarian states makes students more appreciative of their free government. The role of the United States in world affairs is the subject of an elective history course offered to juniors and seniors. Current events as portrayed in modem news coverage are discussed by the class. INDIANA’S STATE FLAG is discussed by government stu¬ dents Bob Segally, Judy McAleer, Dot Hogya and their in¬ structor, Mr. Gartner. A history of the flag and regulations concerning it are taught in Govt. VII. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS of the Amalgamated Doughnut Company — Becky Francis, Yvonne Ignazito, Tom Sabo, Bill Roach, and Melinda Owens — prepare for a financial report. The company was formed as an experiment in “big business.” 30 ntroduce Governors to Old and New Civilizations GEOGRAPHY OF THE WORLD is illustrated by var¬ ious student-made maps. Ed Ingram and Betty Woerner set up this display for their classmates. The pageantry of ancient Egypt, the rip¬ roaring old West, and the confusion of the World Wars are only a few of the many things of which Morton students become aware when they study United States and world history. Events long past, such as the Crusades and the Battle of Little Big Horn, are relived through the pages of a textbook and illus¬ trated pamphlets and through viewing films. Geography students study “terra firma” with the help of a globe, maps, and charts. This type of study enables students to link geographical conditions with the historical and economic developments of the world. THE REMNANT of an ancient civilization is investigated by Mr. Nelson a nd world history students Ardis Kaufman and Daryl Mattox. 31 ADVANCED ALGEBRA stu¬ dents Jack DuFrain and Larry Stout ponder their al¬ gebraic “endeavors.” Jack doesn’t understand that in this phase of algebra, divi¬ sion by zero is impossible. Basic Mathematics, Plane Geometry, and Algebra A variety of math courses present Mor¬ ton students with many problems, varying from algebra’s equations to geometry’s con¬ gruencies, definitions and thearems. In preparation for a life in a world new¬ ly advanced in the fields of science and mathematics, all pupils are required to take a minimum of three semesters of math. Many, however, are enrolled in various math classes throughout their high school careers. Other courses are offered which interest business students as well as the college-bound. Freshmen taking general mathematics learn elemental math for everyday use. In this course students solve problems dealing with simple addition and subtraction and study the principles that re the basis for algebra. Those freshmen who enroll in Algebra I are faced with solving quantity problems, graphing equations, and finding the “un¬ known” in simple equations. IN DEMONSTRATING the method of inscribing a circle in a triangle to Cookie Creekmore and Bob Novosel, Mr. Huls illustrates one of the many uses of one of the geometric principles studied in Geometry II, the locus of points. ANALYTIC GEOMETRY stu¬ dents are often engaged in projects involving solid fig¬ ures such as cones. Bob Sal- ach and Jack Overman dem¬ onstrate their geometric abil¬ ity in naming the various conic sections and curves. Stimulate New Interests, Fill Heads With Formulas Aside from preparing students for life after graduation, mathematics aids in the development of a student’s reasoning powers. Rules based on logic are used to solve equa¬ tions, to find angles, and to prove theorems. Plane geometry, a sophomore subject, while offering a quick smattering of archi¬ tectural and simple physics problems, delves into the mysteries of angles, arcs, polygons, circles, congruencies and theorems. Students who wish to continue in mathe¬ matic endeavors find taking advanced alge¬ bra, analytic geometry and trigonometery to their advantage. These courses, usually offer¬ ed to juniors and seniors, concern the solving of the mysteries of slopes, parabolas, ellipses, functions, formulas, and the like. Many seniors take commercial math, a course designed to a i d pupils in post-high school life. Classes learn the use of checks, receipts, balance books, and many other bus¬ iness forms. Students soon find that math holds the answers to many of the future’s perplexing problems. Mathematics is the key to chem¬ istry, medicine, physics, space, and life. MONEY TRANSACTIONS are integral parts of business math class. Larry Wall doesn’t relish exchanging his money for an “item” produced by Sharon Christ and Tom Evacko. 33 Accounts Hard to Balance, ADDING MACHINES are used by bookkeeping students Mary Kicho and Sharon Scartozzi to help compute accounts. Students Find Business Commercial courses offer a valuable pro¬ gram for business students. The curriculum includes typing, shorthand, clerical practice, bookkeeping, commercial math, salesman¬ ship, general business, and business law. Typing courses are provided for the stu¬ dents’ own personal use and for future secre¬ taries. Clerical practice gives students ex¬ perience with various business machines. Salesmanship classes teach students the art of selling products in the business world. Bus¬ iness law defines the rights and obligations of all citizens in business organizations. THE SLIDE PROJECTOR is used by general business stu¬ dents Linda Lucky and Jimmy Gasaway to make it easier to study the finer points in sample contracts. “WELL I TRIED,” was Carole Rae’s com¬ ment after looking at the pile of typograph¬ ical errors scattered around her typewriter. 34 Fingers Easy to Tangle, Foods Readily Burned Bathing children, general child care, nu¬ trition, body organisms, and emergency first aid care are just a few of the topics discussed in the home nursing course. Girls in home management are taught the art of budgeting money and coping with the average household problems. In clothing class girls begin their studies by using simple patterns and work up to more difficult items such as suits and coats. Both girls and boys get a chance to show their skills and abilities at preparing bal¬ anced meals in the boys’ and girls’ foods courses. The boys not only leam to cook sim¬ ple meals but also spend time learning to re¬ pair and iron their own clothes. Mechanical drawing courses are avail¬ able to prepare Morton boys for future ca¬ reers in industiy. Included in the course are scale drawing, and lettering. CLOTHING STUDENTS Linda Holly, Bonnie Flesicher, Barbara Frye, and Carolyn Grenda model fashions which they made in class while Mrs. Stier smiles approvingly. PROUDLY ADMIRING their baked apples in boys’ foods class are Wayne Krupa, Skeeter Thompson, and Len Meseberg. 35 Governors Create Own World with Brushes and Pallet Art courses give students a chance to ex¬ press themselves through the various artistic mediums such as painting, and sculpting. Students desiring advanced study are re¬ quired to take Art I and II. In these ‘primary’ classes students learn the correct usage of all art tools. Basic composition and design are mastered through sculpture and stencil exer¬ cises and figure and landscape artistry. All students who have completed Art I and II meet together in one class. Figure draw¬ ing, including the sketching of eyes, noses, and hands, is studied. Continuous-line draw¬ ings are examined, along with geometric volumes. Sponges are often used to achieve varied special effects. CAPTURING THE EXPRESSION of a live model on paper is one of the most difficult techniques studied by advanced art students. Art Berquist serves as a model for his class. 36 GREATLY DISMAYED by Jim Halcarz’s musical inter¬ pretation, fellow choir mem¬ bers Tim Brown, Jeanne Rose, and Jo Rudisell look on in amazement. Morton’s Halls Echo with the “Sound Of Music” Vocal groups lend to the spirit of the holiday season by performing at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter assemblies, as well as presenting a spring and autumn concert. The entire choir and selected students from the other vocal groups participate in the all¬ city vocal music festival. The choir, boys and girls choruses, and the glee club provide musical selections at the graduation cere¬ monies in the spring. The Swing Sixteen, the Eight Notes, and the Carrillons are the three new additions to the vocal department. A madrigal and jazz group, the Swing Sixteen sings at school, political, and community affairs. The Caril¬ lons, a ten-member girls group, won a first division rating at a vocal music contest in Gary. The Eight Notes, a boys ensemble, per¬ formed in assemblies. BOYS CHORUS MEMBERS sometimes find perfect harmony difficult to achieve. Norb Barkowski points out a possible improvement to Don Chesney and Tim Wolf in an attempt to gain a better blend of voices. X He need to belong is one of the greatest driving forces in human life. Each person wants continually to feel himself a part of a group, a necessary part of a whole. Here at Morton each student is a part, not only of the school but also of the school ' s clubs. Every Governor belongs to at least one club, where his interests and ideas are shared by the other members. Morton ' s many organizations depend upon the support of their members, and Governors are loyal to their commitments. This inter¬ dependence helps make Morton what it is— the Governors ' Mansion.

Morton’s Student Association Trains the Leaders Most Morton students do not realize the great influence that the Student Association has upon their daily lives. In 1964 the Associ¬ ation served to organize activities, program assemblies, and enforce student regulations. Playing a leading role in the student government were the Association officers. Elected in the spring by the student body, the three officers strove toward maintaining the high standards set by previous administra¬ tions and improving the government where improvement was most needed. Working to¬ gether, President Willie Ruff, Vice-President Rick Tyler, and Recorder Doreen Bianucci made a successful year at Morton. The House of Representatives, composed of representatives from each homeroom, met with these officers every other Tuesday dur¬ ing club period. Although allotted enough time for only short sessions, the represent atives discussed and passed many bills. STUDENT ASSOCIATION OFFICERS who led the school in 1964 are President Willie Ruff, Recorder Doreen Bianuc¬ ci, and Vice-President Rick Tyler. 40 SENATE MEMBERS are — BOTTOM ROW: Sherman Waring, senior; Terry Rhod¬ es, freshman; Cecelia Sher- er, sophomore; Sandy Jar¬ vis, sophomore; Linda Vin- tilla, freshman.

The five secretaries who com¬ pose the cabinet were selected by President Willie Ruff on the basis of dependability, in¬ tegrity, and service. Each control one area of student life. In January a new position was created for the purpose of finding jobs for the students; Russ Barron then became Secretary of Student Employment. Working with the other three branches of the student government is the Senate. Com¬ prised of 10 class-elected Senators, the Senate passed laws and made suggestions that bene¬ fited all students. With the House of Repre¬ sentatives, the Senate met each service-club day to dicuss and solve school problems. CABINET MEMBERS are Linda Foster, Sec¬ retary of Social Affairs; Bob Mitchell, Sec¬ retary of the Student Center; Gary Dietrich, Secretary of Safety; Bob VanGorp, Secretary of Justice; and Ramona Crowe, Secretary of Assemblies.

By working to¬ gether the staff was able to provide students with a yearbook by the end of the school year. Heading the staff this year were editor Kris Houser, junior, and assistant editor Au¬ drey Dixon, senior. Under their direction copy was written, pictures were taken, and adver¬ tisements were sold. Both girls prepared for their positions by attending journalism con¬ ferences last summer. The business staff, headed by Marie Johnson, handles the “money-end” of the book. They work hard to solicit ads, take care of all bills incurred by the Top Hat, and sell books to the students. In their hand lies re¬ sponsibility for the finances of the yearbook. For extra activities this year the Top Hat staff held its annual yearbook-signing party and co-sponsored the Quill and Scroll Banquet in the spring. At the banquet new Quill and Scroll members were initiated. TOP HAT AD SALESMEN are — BOTTOM ROW: Jerry Weber, Lu Etta Parks, Sue Zaher, and Marilyn Gancheff.

These editors produced 19 issues. Morton’s newspaper has “come a long way” since the first issue in 1954. Originally appearing as a page in the “Hessvillite,” it had been under the supervision of the Press Club. The installation of the journalism classes enabled a school issue to be printed. Today the Mortonite is a necessary part of the student’s life. Published semi-monthly, it serves as a handy reference for current, as well as past, events. Facts and features com¬ piled by reporters are offered for the students’ enjoyment and education. The editors prepared for work on the paper by studying newspaper techniques at special journalism institutes held at colleges. Proofreading, makeup, headline structure, and writing style are subjects perfected by students through the study of journalism be¬ fore they take a position on the paper. Membership in Morton’s Quill and Scroll Quill and Scroll is an international hon¬ orary society formed to encourage students to participate in high school journalism. Only students who have done superior work in school publication work are eligible to enter. To be a candidate for membership one must be a junior or senior, be in the upper third of his class, and be recommended by the pub¬ lications sponsor. New Quill and Scroll members were in¬ itiated at an impressive candlelight ceremony in January and at the annual banquet where positions on both staffs were announced for the coming year. TACKLE FOOTBALL is not only for the guys. Female members of both staffs took a try at it in the Top Hat-Mortonite game in October. The yearbook staff won, 21-6.

Scholars Attain Goals of National Honor Society The highest honor paid to a Morton stu¬ dent is membership in National Honor So¬ ciety. Sponsored by Miss Mabel Hunter, the organization maintains the highest standards, requiring its members to excel in all aspects of school life. All upperclassmen with a 3.0 index for four semesters who have been on either honor roll for four consecutive times are eligible for membership. These students make applica¬ tion for membership and are voted on by the faculty. Once admitted, a student must main¬ tain his grade average to remain in the society. Initiation of new members into the Na¬ tional Honor Society took place in January and in the spring. Four of the officers repre¬ sented the spirits of scholarship, leadership, character, and service, and the two o ther of¬ ficers received the students as they were in¬ ducted. After the ceremony each new mem¬ ber received an Honor Society pin. To raise money for initiation expenses, a bake sale was held in the winter at a local bank. Club members baked the “goodies.” NATIONAL HONOR SO¬ CIETY members are — BOTTOM ROW: Pres. B. Mitchell, V.-Pres. S. Waring, Sec. B. Stryzinski, Treas. S. Zaher, Pro. Ch. H. Holsclaw, Alumni Ch. R.

Af¬ filiated with the Y.M.C.A., this club is inter¬ ested in giving service where it is needed. One of the annual projects of the club is the Hi-Y Thanksgiving basket. The entire student body contributed canned goods and money to help fill the baskets. Needy families were selected to receive them. The Mr. Ugly Dance is another annual activity held to raise money. This money goes toward the Robert Newkirk Scholarship, which is awarded to a member of Hi-Y to help finance his education. Good sportsmanship and fair play are stressed by Morton’s M-Club.

Aiding students who are having trouble with certain subjects is the job of the Tutor’s Club. Students with a “B” average or above are eligible for membership. During free hours, the tutors help students. The Red Cross is another organization de¬ signed to help people. Representatives from each homeroom collected donations for the annual Red Cross drive. During the school year the club sold stationery to supply gifts for the under-privileged, and people in spec¬ ial homes and hospitals.

Students participating in these organizations were able to further their musical abilities, to provide entertainment for other’s, and to enjoy playing an instrument or joining in group singing. Under the direction of Mr. Melton, the band participated in many programs, playing in the Loyalty Day Parade in Hammond, the Memorial Day Parade in Hessville, the Fourth of July Parade in Whiting, and the Mardi Gras Parade in Chicago. It also entertained during half-time ceremonies at sports activit¬ ies, besides holding two conceits during the school year and an outdoor performance dur¬ ing the summer month of July. Representatives of the band were sent to the All-State-Band at Andersen. State contest brought first place in sight reading and an “Excellent” rating in concert playing. Entertaining Others Individual band members participated in a number of contests, among them tne state finals at Butler University in February. At the contest 47 first-place gold and 15 second-place silver medals were won by Morton students.

Hard work combined with the blending of voices to make the choir a favorite music group at Morton. Under the direction of Miss Barbara Miller, the choir performed at the annual spring and fall con¬ certs and entertained in various assemblies and at commencement. Several choir members were selected to articipate in the new Honor Choir, formed y Miss Esther Waterbury, head of music in¬ struction in Hammond. Also, choir members represented Morton at the district vocal con¬ test and later at the state contest. The choir’s money-making project this year was a candy sale to buy new choir robes. Orchestra members had a busy year, meeting regularly during fifth hour and, in their spare time, preparing for concerts, con¬ tests, and assemblies. Many orchestra mem¬ bers also belong to the band or play several different instruments. To give their group an extra sparkle, or¬ chestra members this year appeared in uni¬ forms of black and white polished cotton. Directed by Mr. Gregory, the growing group entered the state orchestra contest and accompanied the musical, Babes in Toyland, presented jointly by the music and drama de¬ partments in February. In January the orchestra held a candy sale to raise money for orchestra equipment. ORCHESTRA MEMBERS are — BOTTOM ROW: Kathy Mueller, Maureen Brenman, Paul Lewin.

The club also furnishes sound tracks for various events and recorded music for school dances. Mr. Arthur Gibson, sponsor of the Cinema Club, instructs members on the methods of operating the various visual aid machines and supervises their activities. The club showed movies of previous Washington trips for students who planned to go this year. It also showed films during lunch hours for a ten cent admission fee. The Photo Club provides both the Top Hat and Mortonite staffs with pictures of school dances, games, and assemblies. Mem¬ bers also serve as photographers for a local newspaper. Under the supervision of Mr. Jul¬ ian Rasmussen, members of the club learned to operate cameras, to recognize good subject matter, and to take good human interest, ac¬ tion, and posed shots.

Y-Teens Work Cooperatively for School and Community Affiliated with the YWCA, the Junior and Senior Y-Teens help students to grow as individuals in a society of all races, religions, and nationalities. Realizing the individual’s responsibility to the community, these clubs sponsored various activities during the year to help people. They also held money-making projects to support these activities. The Junior Y-Teens, comprised of under¬ class girls, gave a Christmas party for the Bethany Home. They also held a bake sale in January to raise adequate funds. The Senior Y-Teens, made up of junior and senior girls, made yarn dolls, pictures, and sandbags for a nursery home and various gifts for a home for the aged. The club also held its annual potato chip sale in March. Profits provided money to send next year’s Senior Y- Teens president to a summer camp. JUNIOR Y-TEENS MEMBERS are — BOTTOM ROW: Pres. K.

The bi-weekly meetings, which feature French films, French breakfasts, and speakers, are entertaining as well as educational. The entire meeting is con¬ ducted in French to improve language skills. Activities such as a simulated German beer garden and bake sales not only add to the responsibilities of German club members but also provide a source of revenue for the club. German novels are bought for club mem¬ bers with these funds. Along with new ideas for the financing of this club library, German culture, literature and policies are discussed during the meeting. The highlight of the year was a trip to a German restaurant. GERMAN CLUB MEMBERS are — BOTTOM ROW: Spon¬ sor Mr. Jordan, Y. Pecelin, J. Hunt, S. Martin, Sec. K. Tee- garden, Pres. L. Stout, Treas. J.

Eating Spanish food at a Christmas party and visiting a Span¬ ish restaurant, El Acapulco, were only a few. Money was obtained by sponsoring a dance in November and by holding a bake sale. In December they sent a basket of food to a needy Spanish family and sold Christmas mobiles. To aid them in reading the language, they bought Spanish novels. The club members decorated the language room for a more au¬ thentic atmosphere. Organized primarily as a discussion group, the Library Club was concerned not only with literature and library affairs but also with world and student affairs. The pur¬ pose of the club is to help club members be¬ come aware of the problems surrounding them. SPANISH CLUB members are divided into first and second year groups.

Books, pictures, and maps are used to graphically describe the world for the Travel Club. Missionaries have given talks at club meetings, and films and slides were shown. Historical Club members become aware of different phases of history. The major pro¬ jects this year, a study of the history of Mor¬ ton, was accomplished through oral history, a process in which impressions of people who participated in past events were recorded. Solving problems of higher math proves to be both interesting and educational to mem¬ bers of the Math Club. The club is geared to improve the students’ understanding of dif¬ ferent phases of mathematics for use in every¬ day life both in high school and out. Relaxation, the development of new game techniques and the promotion of sports¬ manship are the main objectives of the Games Club. Every other Tuesday its members match their wits in a challenging game of chess.

Girls Strive for Betterment In Homemaking Clubs Girls clubs at Morton are very active, helping their members learn while they assist others and enjoy themselves. Gaining valuable experience in the field of home economics, the members of the Home Ec. Club organized various charity projects. During the Christmas holidays, they held a party at St. Anne’s Home, served refresh¬ ments, and distributed gifts. They collected clothing for the Welfare Department of thG Hammond Public Schools and food for the Carmelite Home in Crown Point. To finance their projects, the club sold candy. The Girls’ Club gives the feminine por¬ tion of Morton a chance for distinction. “Self¬ development” is the aim of this beneficial club. Members raised money for activities through a bake sale. They visited the Lake County Home for the Aged during the year and gave the senior club members a farewell banquet in the late spring. HOME ECONOMICS CLUB members are—BOTTOM ROW: Sec. B.

Helping to develop talent, giving practice to regular art class students, and offering many interesting and educational activities, the club functioned through the creativity of its mem¬ bers. One of the club’s main projects in 1964 was the designing and making of decorations for the various holidays of the year. The com¬ ing of December turned the members’ talent towards the making of Christmas tree orna¬ ments out of cardboard cylinders. The fin¬ ished products adorned many a Christmas tree. For Easter, cards were made from paper, string, glue, and paint. Trips were also on the club’s agenda. At a commercial art school students had an oppor¬ tunity to begin plans for a career in art. Help¬ ful advice and valuable information were given. Old Town in Chicago was also toured by members of the club. SCULPTING is only one of the many facets of art featured by the Art Club. Ralph Rhodes, junior, is cutting and shaping a ball into a sculpture of papier mache. 71 thletics at Morton involve almost all Governors, not only through direct participation but also through the support of our teams. Physical fitness, emphasized in all phases of sports, is a watchword here. Physical education classes, coupled with opportunities to become active in athletics, assist pupils in becoming physically fit. The Governors ' interest in health and sports helps make Morton what it is— the Governors Mansion. 73 Exciting Victories Over Clark and E. C. Washington VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM — BOTTOM ROW: J.

With nine returning lettermen, Morton’s 1963 varsity football team “took a year off” from state competition to rebuild. Opening the season with a decisive 27-6 victory over cross-town rival Hammond Clark, the Governors flashed much of the power and finesse which placed them among the top Hoosier teams in previous years. The next week, however, the Morton football machine came to a sudden halt when a powerful Ham¬ mond Tech team downed them, 32-6, the sec¬ ond loss in the last 20 Governor starts. The third w eek of play saw the Gover¬ nors and Fort Wayne South battle to an 0-0 deadlock. Whiting scored an upset the following week with a 6-0 victory. Bishop Noll, one of the strongest Calumet Region teams, damp¬ ened Morton’s homecoming with a 13-0 win. E. C. Roosevelt, a perennial state power, downed the hard-fighting Governors for their third consecutive loss the next week, 27-6. 74 lark Path of Varsity Rebuilding Season EYEING THE GOAL LINE with intent, Morton fullback Floyd Coapstick heads upfield to gain yardage and a possi¬ ble first down during the Clark game.

The Governors led 6-0 for three quarters but lost with a 7-6 decision in the fourth quarter. Strategy, Planning Aid Governor Offense Inexperience proved to be Morton’s major handicap in 1964; a green team’s first six games yielded a poor 1-4-1 record. Although close decisions snatched “sure wins” from the Governors’ grasp in the closing minutes of contests, the engineering of offen¬ sive plays and the training of a young defen¬ sive squad developed potential. South Bend Adams, Morton’s seventh opponent of the year, defeated the Governors by a close 7-6 score. However, Morton led in¬ to the final seconds of the fourth quarter. The fol 1 owing week Morton battled Ham¬ mond High’s top-ranked crew “down to the wire.” Deep in Wildcat territory late in the game, the Governors were forced to give the ball to Hammond on their 3-yard line, thus losing 7-0 to the highly rated team. Because of heavy rain, the upcoming game with Gary Tolleston was cancelled. Morton then went on to win over E. C. Washington. SOPHOMORE QUARTERBACK Darrel Chaney listens in¬ tently as backfield coach Nick Luketic gives the young Gover¬ nor instructions during the E. C. Washington game.

Washington 0 20 Hammond Tech 0 14 Hammond High 0 18 Hammond Gavit 13 19 Bishop Noll 0 32 Hammond Clark 0 14 E. C. Washington 0 Averaging over eighteen points per game, the Morton frosh team out-manuevered its op¬ ponents to end the season with a perfect 7-0 record. The main asset of the freshman team this year was its defense, which held all op¬ posing teams to a meager total of 13 points. Consecutive shutout victories over E. C. Washington, Hammond Tech, and Hammond High were followed by a fourth victory over Hammond Gavit, the only team to score on the Governor yearlings. Then came three more shutouts over Bishop Noll, Hammond Clark, and E. C. Washington (two games were sched¬ uled with Washington). With six shut-out victories in seven games the Morton freshman team showed promise of performing the same feat two years from now as the varsity football squad. City championships have graced the an¬ nals of Morton’s frosh football squads for quite a few years, and it is hoped that this same incentive for victory can propel the var¬ sity to new and better successes in the future.

Varsity Roundballers “FLY BIRD, FLY!” yells the crowd as Morton’s tall center Tom (Bird) Hopman launches a shot against Chicago Dun¬ bar. Even though the Governors came out on the short end of the score, a close game provided a moral victory. “IT’S MINE!” says sophomore Darrel Chaney as he keeps the ball from a Dunbar player. The Governors started hot but had a cold third quarter, losing to the Mighty Men from Chicago by a 67-63 score. Start Slow but End Season LEAPFROG OR BASKETBALL? Larry Lee and this Red Streak seem to be playing a game of leapfrog during the Terre Haute Wiley game. The Governors played a strong first half before surrendering to the downstate foe, 67-55. With Winning Streak New Year’s marked the beginning of the Morton basketball upsurge. Through the con¬ stant and diligent efforts of the team and coaches alike, the Governors showed flashes of greatness in their post-New Year contests. With improved scoring punch and an aggres¬ sive, “ballhawking” defense, the Governor cagers made the Calumet area fans sit up and take notice. Following a close loss to high-scoring Gary Edison, the team bombed Griffith with senior Tom Hopman scoring a season high of 36 points. Next came a tough loss to a rugged downstate foe, Terre Haute Wiley, and an in¬ spiring victory over Gary Lew Wallace. In their next game, the Governors broke loose a 12-point lead against Chicago Dun¬ bar in the first quarter before the “windy citians” took the contest by just two baskets. Then an encouraging winning streak was started with Highland, Gary Wirt, and Ham¬ mond Clark falling to Morton’s consistently tenacious offense and defense. “TAKE IT EASY!” yells Coach DePeugh in a tense moment in the Highland game. The Governors scored an upset over the Trojans from Highland with a 57-47 victory. 81 Hard Work on Defense Proves Aid to Varsity Cagers •‘LET’S GO!” shout Governor reserves as Morton’s varsity performs during the Highland game.

REFUSING TO GIVE IN to efforts of this Highland grap- ipler, senior Wayne Capalby nears a pin in one of Morton’s seven victories. Tough wrestling such as this made for an interesting and rugged season. Morton’s 1963-64 wrestling team started the season off right by romping over E. C. Washington, 56 to 0. Led by the fine coaching of Mr. Gollner and Mr. Kepler, the wrestling team won 6 of 13 matches, beating E. C. Washington, Highland, Bishop Noll, Gary An- drean, Hammond Clark, and Merrillville. The Governors lost close decisions to Hammond High, Gary Mann, E. C. Roosevelt, and Ham¬ mond Tech. Since Morton’s regular season schedule ended one week before sectionals, Coach Goll¬ ner decided to “drum up” some action rather than wait for sectionals to begin. The result was Morton’s First Annual Invitational Tour¬ nament. Four teams — Morton, Gary An- drean, Bishop Noll, and Hammond Gavit — competed in the tournament. Coach Gollner felt that dual meets were not sufficient to prepare wrestlers for section¬ als and that larger meets offered more of the needed competition for top-notch wrestling. The First Annual Invitational Tournament proved to be a success as the Governors took their four opponents and all team honors. 1963-64 B-TEAM WRESTLING RECORD MORTON OPPONENT 8 Evergreen Park 48 27 Highland High 25 16 Hammond High 31 13 Gary Andrean 43 38 Lowell 18 19 E.

A history of winning seasons has put the Governors among the top teams in the region and state. With 80 wins and only 27 defeats over a seven-year period, Coach Georgas’s teams have repeated¬ ly won the city championship. Last year’s baseball team won city su¬ premacy by compiling an incredible 18-1-1 record. Coach Georgas stated, “Being inde¬ pendent, the only thing we can shoot for is the city title. That was the case last year.” Senior catcher Ken Hyde, who bats near .400, returned from the 1963 team. Bob Van- Gorp, senior, and junior Dan Hull were the two starting pitchers in most of the games. Reserve depth in the pitching staff came from junior right-hander Don Ward and Dar¬ rell Chaney, a three-sport star who was the only sophomore to make the team. Chaney, although slated for shortstop, showed promise for a future on the mound. DURING THE GARY WIRT GAME senior Wayne Capalby fields the ball. Besides aiding the team with outstanding outfielding, Wayne also made two hits. Morton won 7-1.

SENIOR PITCHER Bob VanGorp takes advantage of a warm spring day to timber up his throwing arm. Spring practices like this kept the team members in shape. Governor Nine Seeks Fourth Consecutive City Title Victory was the word during the 1963 Mor ton varsity baseball campaign, as the Gover¬ nors won 18, lost 1, and tied 1. Led by some strong pitching and excellent fielding, Mor¬ ton downed Griffith and Highland in the first two games. Following a heart-breaking loss at Merrill¬ ville, the Governors settled down to seventeen straight games without defeat. Hammond Clark, Hammond High, Bishop Noll (three times), Gary Roosevelt, E. C. Washington, and Crown Point were among the most respected teams in the Calumet Region beaten by Mor¬ ton’s crew. Morton fans were gratified to see a victory over Merrillville later in the season which avenged the team’s earlier loss. The Governors compiled 102 runs in 20 games and held all opposition to a mere 27 runs for an average score of 5 to 1 for the season’s games. SENIOR FIRST-BASEMAN Bob Segally leaps skyward for a hardhit ball during one of the Governors’ baseball prac¬ tices. Such practices contributed to a successful season.

The Gover¬ nors began the season with a win over Bishop Noll and a second place in the City Indoor Meet. Following a victory over Hammond Tech, the Governors lost to the fleet runners of Hammond High. As the season wore on, it be¬ came apparent that Morton would probably not be an area power, but Governor fans were presented with victories over such teams as East Chicago Washington, Highland, Gary Lew Wallace, and Michigan City. Seniors Bob Salach, miler; Ron Estep, 440-yard dash expert; and Bob Muller, half- miler, were outstanding members of the 1964 track team. Bob Salach was timed at 4:50 in the mile and Ron Estep at 52.7 in the 440-yard dash. John Gerovac, junior, turned in some re¬ spectable times this spring in the half-mile 1 dash. Outstanding freshman prospect was Ron Volbrecht who high jumped 5’ 8”. UP AND OVER goes high-jumper Paul Scott during one of Morton’s strenuous track practices. Sessions such as this characterized this year’s track season. STRAINING TO CLEAR a low hurdle, junior Tom Eatinger concentrates on his form.

Basketball, baseball, soccer and kickball are a few of the many sports in which Mor¬ ton’s Girls’ Athletic Association engages. This club meets daily during eighth hour in the girls’ gym where the 21 members learn the rales and skills of sports varying from vol¬ leyball to horseshoes. A point system provides impetus for en¬ terprising members. A member receives ten points for each organized activity and five for each unorganized activity. Numbered among the latter are bicycle-riding, swim¬ ming. bowling, ice skating, skiing, and arch¬ ery. When a member earns 150 points, she re¬ ceives her choice of a red felt letter “M” or numerals. For 250 points a member receives a chenille letter. With 350 or more points, a member receives a handsome engraved pla¬ que; senior Kazia Macey has received one. Each May a district camp is offered for members at an area campsite, where they learn the value of competition, sportsmanship, and cooperation. Each October Morton’s G.A.A. officers spend a few days at a spec¬ ial officers’ camp learning new ways to aid their organization. ALL EYES Are “GLUED” to the ball as Debby Ruff and Kazia Macey prepare to leap for the tip in a G.A.A. basket¬ ball game. Members took part in many other sports.

They often practiced long hours after school to perfect new cheers for approaching games and assemblies.

Un¬ der the direction of Mrs. John Melton, girls ranging from freshman to seniors, practiced daily to perfect routines and skits which add¬ ed to the color of sports activities. These girls participated in various local, district and state contests, bringing honors to Morton. At football games the twirlers performed along with the marching band directed by Mr. John Melton and were led onto the field by drum major Jerry Weber. When basket¬ ball season arrived so did the twirlers, as they entertained Governor fans at intermission of home basketball games. The twirlers perform¬ ed their routines at basketball games with music provided by Morton’s pep band. PERFORMING FOR HALF-TIME at a home football game, Morton’s senior drum major Jerry Weber added color to sport contests.

Members of a club must support their club if it is to continue, for they themselves are the body and spirit of the organization. Neither can any school exist without the support of its students. The student body constitutes the life blood of an educational institution like Morton. In a sense, the Governors own Morton. This is their school, and as its most important components they are proud of it. Their pride and presence helps make Morton what it is— the Governors ' Mansion. 99 Outstanding Seniors Receive Honors SENIOR EXECUTIVE BOARD members are SEATED: Sponsor Mr. Moorehead, H. Shock, R.

For the class of 1964 it was a year filled with unforgettable memories. Seniors started planning activities soon after school began. They wore senior cords, were measured for caps and gowns, and chose announcement cards to complete their last, year at the Governor’s Mansion. Homecoming and the Inaugural Ball fol lowed by the Winter Formal were.the first big social events. The Has-Been Will-Be Game came and went. As a close to their social ac¬ tivities, the class enioyed the Spring Play, the Senior Banquet, and Senior Week. The Jr.-Sr. Prom, “Sea Mist,” climaxed every senior’s last year and was a wonderful farewell tribute. PRESIDING OVER and leading the senior class are Secretary Barb Stryzinski, Veep Paul Lewin, and President Jim Ferguson.

Tom Hopman, with 26 points, was the leading scorer for the Has Been’s. The Will Be’s were led by Jack Repay with 19 points and Steve Banka with 16. Traditionally, the seniors presented a skit at half-time to bolster their team’s spirit. This game, which ended the basketball season, broke a two year winning streak for the Has Been’s. ONE SMALL WILL BE can cause lots of trouble, as exhibited by freshman Dennie Berard, who shoots for a basket as seniors Tom Hopman, Ken Hyde, and Jim Ferguson try to block his attempt. DURING HALF-TIME of the Has Been-Will Be Game, seniors Nancy McConnell, Toni Oros, and Jan Kiger “crack¬ ed the whip” at juniors in preparation for the second half. OFFICERS of the Junior Class are President Don Ward, Vice-President George Bewley, Secretary Kathy Teegarden. Junior Class Participates In Many ‘Extra’ Activities The 375 members of the Class of ’65 have many accomplishments of which to be proud. Juniors worked hard to make a class float, a covered wagon labelled “Beat ’Em or Bust,” for homecoming. Class dues, collected each fall for anticipated expenses, were contributed to “Sea Mist,” this year’s Jr.-Sr. Prom. The Junior Executive Board, comprised of a rep¬ resentative from each eleventh grade home¬ room, and the class sponsors, Mr. Gerald Spit- zer and Mrs. Jean Hastings, helped to make these activities possible. Besides all this, the junior class consistently claimed the highest number of students on the honor rolls. A COVERED WAGON surrounded by “dead” Bishop Noll Warriors was the theme of the Junior Class homecoming float. Four Weeks’ preparation was spent to ready the float in time for the parade October 4.

Tom Kerr, Sec. Bev. Sheaks, and Vice-Pres. Donna Nelson. Sophomore Class Officers Guide Student Activities As this year’s sophomores grew accus¬ tomed to their new stations in life, they also became aware of Morton and its many oppor¬ tunities in each field — academics, sports, friendship, and social activities. Sports events became more important to each member of the class as sophomores entered the ranks of varsity athletes. Social life and companion¬ ship, too, became more important to each sophomore as he attended dances such as the Inaugural Ball and the Winter Formal. School work grew harder and more time-consuming, but there was always time for relaxation. MORTON STUDENTS buy and wear mums for both Sectional and Homecoming games. Sophomores Donna Nelson and Kathy Creek- more try on theirs after the pep rally pre¬ ceding basketball Sectionals. 128 Charles Adams Mark Agnini Lynda Aker Terry Anderson Kathy Argadine Emily Austin Nancy Baasse Chester Bailor Roberta Balka Ilene Balog Michael Barta Andrea Batsel Paul Bauck Charles Bell Brian Bement Don Benton Dennis Berard Adele Bernacki Dorothy Bienko Chris Biewenga David Biro Michael Black Larry Bogner Kathy Borsits Carol Bowersox Bill Bowley Jim Bowley Lenore Brandenburg Sophs Achieve Academic Excellence and Social Stability Tom Brouillette Jim Brownewell Fred Bruner William Bucko Ilona Bujaki Nancy Butoryak Theresa Castro Nancy Chamberlain Darrell Chaney Susan Charette Barbara Chess Linda Chigas James Clapp Dale Coapstick Penny Cole David Coppage John Cornelison Linda Cotterell Linda Crawford Cookie Creekmore Teresa Davis Dennis Dawson Pam Detvay Sue Dietrich Linda Dyar Mark Eastwood Martha Eastwood Larry Eaton Viola Eaton Lynne Ecklund Lucia Fabris Diane Fedak Doug Fix Jackie Flickinger Linda Ford Joseph Fozkos Bob Franklin Barb Fredericks Pat Gardner Jim Gasvoda Kathy Grenda Tim Groat Gerry Guiden Eileen Hamerla Ralph Harrison Kathy Hayduk Tony Heavener Beverly Hendricks Candy Hess Steve Hether James Hines Kathy Hmurovich Elaine Hoggatt Laurie Hudzik Patricia Idzik Melanie Ignazito Ed Ingram Wyona Ingram Karen Ison Sandy Jarvis Larry Jillson Janice Johnson Linda R.

Absorbed in the book are sophs Mary Mosko, Linda Munro, Sue Dietrich, Shar¬ on Knaver, and Mel Ignazito. 132 Freshmen Voters Become Good Citizens of Tomorrow FRESHMAN OFFICERS are President Mort Schlesinger, Secretary Diane Burke, Vice-President David Mus- toe. This year’s freshman class had many ex¬ citing things to do. Besides meeting new friends, as freshmen they had study halls and gym classes every day for the first time. Lock¬ er combinations were confusing and trouble¬ some to new students. As 9B’s and 9A’s they had fewer subjects than in junior high but a much tougher schedule to maintain. In September freshmen were introduced to Morton’s facilities when they took part in the “Big-Brother, Big-Sister Program” sponsored by the Morton Student Association. FRESHMEN have the priv¬ ilege and the obligation to vote for their class officers and senators for the first time. Hazel Witte, Jack Mar- tain, Terry Rhodes, Lois Hopp, Paul Guiden, and Cheryl Pickette take advan¬ tage of this opportunity.

Here several discover the unfathomable amounts of “junk” in one locker. Keep Clean Don Williams Kenneth Williams Linda Williams Jerry Winders Becky Wing Garry Wiseman Hazel Witte Betty Woerner Donna Wright Valarie Wright To Open, Even Principal Becker Begins Blueprints for New School As a team Charles B. Chidester and Wil¬ liam A. Volk, administrative assistants, work together in assisting Mr. Becker in school management. As a counselor for Morton students, Mr. Chidester has charge of the activity program and the master teacher’s schedule. Mr. Chi¬ dester received his B.A. from Yale Univer¬ sity and his M.A. from the University of Ken¬ tucky. In charge of discipline, Mr. Volk aids Mr. Chidester in the guidance program and group testing. Mr. Volk received his B.S. degree from Valparaiso University and his M.A. from the University of Chicago. ASSISTANTS TO THE PRINCIPAL, Mr. William Volk and Mr. Charles B- Chidester, aid Mr. Becker in school administration. They also share in giving guidance and tests. Mr. W. Winston Becker, principal of Morton, supervises an efficient administrative staff. The job of principal can be compared to public relations work if one considers Mr. Becker’s daily duties. He must approve stu¬ dent activities and supervise all actions of the school. This year he is also busy attending numerous administrative meetings with the new superintendent. Our principal spends many hours co-or¬ dinating plans and blueprints for the new Morton School. He has also instituted a split lunch-hour system to ease pressure on the over-crowded cafeteria and study halls. He also reports ideas and issues brought up at school board meetings. MORTON’S PRINCIPAL, Mr. W. Winston Becker, spend a great part of his day approv¬ ing papers and communications at his desk. 138 Superintendent and School Board Set School Policy During his first year as Superintendent of the Hammond Public School System, Dr. Joseph L. Hendrick, along with his two as sistants, Mr. M. H. Thorsen and Dr. 0. L. Rapp, has encouraged the continued progress of Hammond Schools, and has provided the necessary leadership for the school admini¬ strators in the city. Dr. Hendrick, formerly Superintendent of Schools at Ossining, New York, stated he will “not be satisfied unless the Hammond Public Schools are the finest in the country.” He has already introduced the use of an IBM com¬ puter system to expedite student program scheduling in all city high schools. Among its various duties, the school board approves the plans for the new Morton School, appropriates funds for the school bud¬ get, and passes bills concerning the welfare of the school city. A new school board was elect¬ ed this fall, but will take office next year. A familiar figure in the downtown of¬ fice, business manager Donald Gavit, plans to retire this year after 28 years of service. PRESENT SCHOOL BOARD members are Mrs. T. Allen, Dr. H. Eggers, Mr. L. Bereolas, Mrs. L. Stern, and Mr. C. Scott. 139 Teachers Show Various Interests Through Hobbies, 140 wSS? U VaSity MR.

Teachers Get Welcome Respite With Midday Meal Across the hall from the cafeteria is the teachers’ lunchroom. Unlike the students, the teachers have a full hour for lunch in which they can discuss student problems and teach¬ ing methods. Here the teachers are able to take time out from an often exhausting sched¬ ule for lunch and conversation. Since this small room is also used as a classroom, the teachers must “evacuate” after sixth hour. Nevertheless, the teachers’ cafeteria is still t he faculty’s “refuge” from the vigorous, energetic student body. ENJOYING THEIR LUNCH are several members of Morton’s faculty. At noontime a var¬ iety of tempting lunches await teachers as well as students. 143 MORTON’S OFFICE STAFF Mrs. Payne, Mrs. Reynolds, Mrs. Stryzinski, and Mrs. Pink have the job of keeping the school running smoothly. Office and Cafeteria Staffs Meet Student Needs Efficient office workers maintain and control the school office. They forward im¬ portant office calls to Mr. Becker and super¬ vise intra-school communication. Tardiness slips and reports of delinquency from classes are also checked in the office. Mrs. Reynolds, overseer of the bookstore, sees that all funds are handled promptly and properly. The six cafeteria workers are kept busy by the Governors’ appetites. Well-balanced meals are served twice during each of 4th, 5th, and 6th hours on the new split lunch hour pro¬ gram. The cafeteria is self-sufficient except for the food received from the government. The posted prices give the buyer a chance to see what’s cookin’. CAFETERIA STAFF MEMBERS Mrs. M. Shadoan, Mrs. A. Konyu, Mrs. L. Garson, Mrs. B. Johnson, Mrs. E. Warkentien, and Mrs. H. Shock take responsibility in preparing hot noon-time meals for the hundreds of hungry Morton students. 145 ApmTMilllKKS As 1964 drew to a close, the Governors looked forward with aniticipation to a " new " school. Blueprints were being drawn up for a new Morton High; this year ' s juniors expect to be the last class to graduate from the old building. The seniors, however, have already " sold " the old school to the junior high, who will occupy Morton after the high school is moved. The seniors found that ads save time and trouble when one wants to find information quickly or sell something to the Governors. Governors use and appreciate the ads in the Top Hat. Their interest in good communication helps make Morton what it is— the Governors ' Mansion. 147 BEST WISHES TO THE CLASS OF 1964 FROM PEPSI-COLA BOTTLING COMPANY 148 On top of car: T. Hopman, F.

INVITE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO BE THEIR GUESTS AWAY FROM HOME John Fitzgerald Kennedy 1917-1963 " If we are strong, our strength will speak for itself — if we are weak, words will be of no help. " — John F. Kennedy The Undelivered Speech at Dallas November 22, 1963 168 About the 1964 Top Hat Dear Governors, A yearbook is a memory book, and this Top Hat is filled with memories for the staff—memories of such things as the confusion on picture taking day, the many times we spilled the rubber cement, and the many, many times headlines just wouldn ' t fit. We will remember leaving layouts at home, trying to index the entire book in one day, cropping the pix that never would fit the layout, searching for pica rulers, fighting for pica rulers, and the horrible time we had only one cardboard ruler to our name. We will remember losing grease pencils, not understanding the slide rule, and not under¬ standing both Mrs. Stock and printer Mr. Larry Wells. We ' ll remember the pictures lost in the photo lab, the pictures lost in the Top Hat room, the editor ' s basket on deadline day, how we produced 90 pages in two weeks, and our worries about delivery. Yes, there are many things to remember about this year ' s Top Hat, but what will stand out most in our memory is the joy and pride we feel in having been allowed to create a yearbook for Morton ' s students. We hope you, too, will remember this book. Sincerely yours. ouAer Kris Houser, Editor Staff Editor.Kris Houser Assistant Editor .. Audrey Dixon Business Manager.
