We’re the Morton Governors . . . We represent a cross section of feelings, attitudes, and leaderships. We comprise a student body striving for one common goal — a key to replace ignorance with understanding. Whether rooting for our team, compiling statistics, or lost in deep contemplation we are a part of that body; we know that we belong. Able teachers acquaint us with the problems of the surrounding world which will one day be our legacy, hoping to cultivate a barren mind and watch it develop in its quest for truth. We are a cross section of nationalities, beliefs, and personalities; each one different from the first, but each one sharing a common tradition, remem- branches of social functions, a thriving spirit, and a friendly conflict between upper and lower classes. Morton’s Governors are a young, fresh, vibrant generation — this is the story of our year. And No One Could Be Prouder BERMUDA DAY brought about strange changes in the behavior of seniors D. Hiduke, E. Hawk¬ ing, and L. Blackman. LOYAL MORTON boost¬ ers present skits to arouse school spirit. GOVERNORS SAW a magnificent view of the city from the top of the Washington Monument. The tall structure is a must for tourists visiting the Capitol city. On their trip to the nation’s capitol Governors visited such places as the Lin¬ coln Museum, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Capitol Building, and the White House. Students boarded trains early Tuesday evening, October 20, for the ride to Washington. Late Wednesday afternoon train-weary Governors caught their first glimpse of the Capitol. As they embarked buses waited to wisk them to the hotel for dinner before a round of sightseeing. Thursday morning the travelers journ¬ eyed to Arlington National Cemetery where they paid their respects at the grave of the late President Kennedy. After¬ wards, they viewed the impressive “changing of the guard” ceremony. From Washington the students traveled to New York City where they spent the final hours of their trip seeing Chinatown, the Statue of Liberty, and the Bowery. A yacht cruise topped their stay. Governors Journey to New York, Capitol ; PAINTINGS, the great rotunda, and the chambers of both Houses of Congress were visited by Governors during their guided tour of the Capitol Building and grounds. 6 WASHINGTON D. C. ' s White House, the home of the presi¬ dents, was a favorite stop on the tour. President Johnson was not at home when M.H.S. students visited. Pay Respects at Late President ' s Grave MOST SIGHTSEERS found the climb to the top of the Statue of Liberty long, but the view was quite rewarding. A NATION ' S SORROW was remembered with a visit to the grave of the late President Kennedy. The October 22 visit was one month from the first anniversary of his assassination in Dallas, Texas. President Installed ; Cabinet Recites Oath RESTING HIS HAND upon the bible, George Bewley repeats the oath of office which is being administered by Principal W. Winston Becker at inauguration assembly. George Bewley was sworn in as the 12th President of the Student Association on November 20, 1964, by Principal W. Winston Becker. The new president next administered the oath of office to the other executive officers Drew Hiduke, Vice-president, and Chris Toth, Recorder, and then to the members of his cabinet. Summaries of the offices and the duties involved were presented to the student body after George de¬ livered his inaugural address. In his address George expressed his wish that the student body would take a more active role in their student government. The judiciary branch was next to swear alligance to the new government. Tom Krughoff, Chief Justice, administered the oath of office to the members of his courts including the judges, recorder, and bailiff. Within the course of the assembly students acknowl¬ edged the help given by the two association sponsors, Mr. William Volk and Mr. Joseph Gartner. At the end of the assembly period President Bewley led the standing student body in the student pledge to insure cooperation from all Governors throughout the remaining months of his term in office. NEWLY INSTALLED president, George Bewley, administers the oath of office to his Vice-pre sident, Drew Hiduke. Drew outlined his plans for the association in his acceptance speech. He stressed the need for students to take a more active part in the formation and passage of association policies. Assemblies Offer New Facets of Education Assemblies are a necessary component of the curriculum at Morton High School. This year, for the first time, Middle School students were given their own as¬ semblies since they were excluded from the normal gathering. M.H.S. programs presented educational material such as films and slides dealing with a variety of subjects from zoology to social pressures and prejudices. Popular music and styles characteristic of the teenager were also included as a part of the regular format. At M.H.S. programs were under the direction of Jennifer Evans, Secretary of Assemblies. Thus, the material was not only seen by the students, but the Gover¬ nors themselves took an active interest in what was presented. Clubs and various other departments often used the assemblies to acquaint Governors with the work of the organiza¬ tion and its role in school life. SKITS concerning summer institutes were given to reveal the benefits of additional study. FUTURE ASTRONOMER Terry Mears makes use of a disguise to illustrate his work at Indiana University ' s Science Institute. GOVERNORS PLEDGE allegiance to their nation ' s flag at the beginning of each assembly program. The words bring to mind the proud heritage of America. Gov ' nors Uphold Tradition Despite Setbacks Mother Nature played an important role in Mor¬ ton’s 1964 Homecoming as rain checked all activity and caused a shift in float themes for the junior class. Assemblies and a bonfire, held in preparation of the announced date, allowed students to meet the queen candidates. The six girls were judged on their appearance, personality, and service to the school. The Governor’s choice was revealed four weeks be¬ fore the second Homecoming date to reduce the candi¬ dates’ suspense and tension. Morton’s queen, Mary Lynn Waters, was crowned on October 30, 1964, by Student Association President George Bewley. After the game, the queen reigned over the annual dance. SENIORS CHOSE " We ' re Draggin ' Down the Archers " as the theme for their Homecoming float. A sudden downpour changed the name on the float from " Archers " to " Wildcats " . STUDENT ASSOCIATION PRES. G. Bewley bestows a kiss upon newly crowned Mary Lynn Waters. Moments later, Mary Lynn descends the " top hat " platform with the help of her escort L. Stout to begin her reign. QUEEN ' S COURT members for 1964 are — Nancy Creekmore, JoAnn Frye, Janet Glasgow, Judy Jeneske, and Kathy Teegarden. 11 High School Moves to Larger Home in ' 66 Yearly expansion in the enrollment of students at M.H.S. forced administration officials to hunt for larger accommoda¬ tions. A new school was proposed to eliminate the crowded conditions and the corner of 169th and Grand Avenue was chosen as the site for the construction. Three main sections will make up the new building. These are academic, liberal and practical arts, and and physical edu¬ cati on. Each section will be granted a cer¬ tain area of the two story building. In ad¬ dition, the academic wing will accomo¬ date counselors and office personnel as well as the nurse. Also in this section will be the long awaited library which has suffered greatly from lack of space. Other features, such as a spacious auditorium with a 1,200 seating capacity and a large gym, will be included. SANTA CLAUS offers advice to Principal W. W. Becker on the location and size of the new Morton High School building. A NEW SCHOOL will provide a pleasant, spacious atmos- the high school while the present building will be turned over phere, different from the conditions which exist within the to the Middle School under the guidance of Principal Daniel present " home of the Governors. " The new building will house Gyure, appointed in February. 12 MORTON students enjoy cheering the team. CHEERLEADERS generate energy to surrounding supporters. Pep Rallies Arouse Spirit, Support Teams Essential to the morale of any team is a strong group of loyal boosters who will stand behind them regardless of the record. Morton Governors are such a group of fans. In order to channel this support to the right areas, pep rallies are held often throughout the fall and winter seasons by the cheerleaders. Pep rallies enable the fans to demonstrate their approval of the team’s performance and to let the boys know that they are being backed all the way. The annual pre-school pep rally, held in a local bank parking lot each fall, rings in the new school year with some enthusiastic cheers. During this rally juniors and seniors, together with the cheerleaders and pep band, put on skits which depict the favorite play¬ ers of the football team. Basketball sectionals afford students with another opportunity to cheer their team. A pep assembly is held to arouse support and to introduce the team. Pep talks given by the coaches increase confidence in the boys’ ability to perform and represent M.H.S. well. BOOSTERS turn out in large throngs for any pep rally to yell for their team. 13 Stage Productions Serve as Talent Outlet SUPPORTING CAST MEMBERS Bob Jamison and Terry Rhodes place veils on Sharon Buza and Carleen Adams while Diane Burke looks on during a pause in rehearsals. ASSEMBLED in their " kitchen " during Act I of " Dumbell Peo¬ ple " are Gary Austin, Terry Rhodes, and " The Gordons " — Jack DuFrain and Mary Lou Czarnecki. 14 MORTON SENIOR CLASS and the MORTON DRAMATICS DEPARTMENT HARVEY by Mary Chase Directed by Donn L.

Marriage-minded people filled the script and cast of the fall play, “Red Mill”. Throughout the play the question of “who will marry whom?” was constantly a puzzle. Presented on November 19-21, the play dealt with a small Dutch town called Katwyk-ann-zee in which the red mill was located. The town’s Burgomaster planned to wed his daugh¬ ter, Gretchen, to the Governor of the town. Being young, Gretchen had made up her mind to marry a young sailor rather than the elderly governor. To complicate the situation, Juliana, the Burgomaster’s sister, and the governor have decided to marry. The Burgomaster locked Gretchen in the red mill to keep her from marrying her sailor, Henry. As is the case in most love stories, the lovers are coupled the way they had planned and everyone lives happily ever after. “Dumbell People in a Barbell World,” the winter play, consisted of three separate acts which character¬ ized the title. “The Immovable Gordons,” the first act, tells of an elderly couple forced to vacate their con¬ demned apartment. The second act, “The Little Lady of Friday Night,” relates the tale of a cleaning woman who devoted her life to beautifying the world. The final act, entitled “The Man With The Tranquil Mind,” involved the life of a health lecturer who was engaged to the “healthiest girl at Woolworth’s.” A chivalrous bachelor and his strange friend, an invisible 6’2” rabbit, provided Governors with a touch of light humor when the drama department staged “Harvey” early in the spring. Needless to say, the friend caused the young man considerable trouble with un¬ believing friends. Priority was given to seniors for cast parts by Mr. Donn Edwards, production director. REHEARSALS HELPED " actors " to learn their roles and ac¬ quaint them with stage manuevers. Members of the cast of " Harvey, " Judy Jeneske and Bob Florence, watch Jack DuFrain examine the two holes in the cap. SCENERY is not a problem to members of the cast of " Har¬ vey, " the senior play. Here, Diane Burke, Ellen Hawking, and Tom Krughoff devote their time after school to perfecting the projection of their lines and stage positions. 15 Teens Enjoy Nightlife Attend Formal, Prom Morton’s first formal affair of the season, “Beaus and Arrows,” was held on February 12, 1965, at St. Michael’s Hall. The annual Winter Formal was spon¬ sored by the Government Club to raise money to sup¬ port Morton’s two Vietnamese foster children. Nguyen Thi Be and Nguyen Thi Trung were adopted to com¬ pensate for the loss of the Governor’s first foster child, Kim Chung Yung, who died unexpectedly. “Unforgettable” was the theme for the 1965 Junior- Senior Prom. Held at the Dorchester Club, the prom climaxed a fun-filled social season. Artful decorations combined with soft lights allowed Governors to forget momentary troubles and “dance the night away” to music provided by the Rhythm-Airs. The Dorchester Club was also the scene of the After Prom Party. Here Governors enjoyed the entertain¬ ment of the Drew-Vels and found time to pause for refreshments. Parents of the Juniors were responsible for the planning which went into the party. SECRETARY of Social Affairs, Kathy Teegarden and her date Larry Gardner enjoy the romantic music and soft-colored lighting of the Winter Formal held February 12, 1965.

Monday through Friday the seniors wore the special outfit of the day which ranged from Bermuda shorts to Dress-up apparel. While their participation in senior week allowed seniors to endulge in some fun before facing the mountainous task of studying for final exams, it also served to remind them that their final high school year would be drawing to a close in a few days. It was the Senior Banquet, held on May 8, which paved the way for final activities. Scholastic achievement and service to the school was announced and rewarded accordingly when out¬ standing seniors were recognized at the awards assem¬ bly. Aside from personal recognition, seniors were able to review with pride and satisfaction their record of the past four years as students at M.H.S. The 1965 graduating class left behind a legacy of high scholastic, moral, and social achievement. Commencement and baccalaureate climaxed four years of fun, homework, and growing pains for Mor¬ ton’s 1965 senior class. Baccalaureate was held in Tech Auditorium while the Hammond Civic Center accommodated the Governors and their parents for commencement exercises on June 10th. UNAWARE of the impending confiscation of his " toy, " ber- muda-clad senior Tim Summner enjoys one of the privileges of senior week. Mr. W. Volk, Assistant Principal, apparently has another thought on the matter. CONFERENCES such as these were held often during April to plan the Senior Banquet. Here Chris Brown, John Gero- vac, Paul Scott, Chris Toth, Sharyn Barynes, and Jim Tomsic form a committee. SENIORS, under the eyes of proud parents and friends, enter the Hammond Civic Center to take their places before commencement exercises. LINING UP to receive their diplomas, seniors have time to remember their past four years as Governors. Commencement marks the end of their student life at M.H.S. DISMISSAL bell sounds the end of another homeroom period as seniors empty the large auditorium. Seniors Bid Farewell to Home of Governors As Governors we study a varied curriculum. Capable teachers, well-versed in their chosen fields, educated our minds to meet the demands of the modern world. Our scholastic endeavors in fields ranging from speech to science are well known and instill within us a special pride. Through our studies at M. H. S. we strive to become a well-informed, intelligent student body. Experiments Highlight Scientific Research Regional and national science honors won by Mor¬ ton students are a reflection of the excellence of the science department at Morton. Capable teachers, ad¬ vanced equipment, and teaching techniques play an important part in the science curriculum. Biology, the science of life, is the most popular science course offered at Morton. Included in the course is the dissecting of worms, frogs, and white rats. A new addition to the department on a trial basis was a closed-circuit television, which aided in the study of plants and animals. The set enabled the en¬ tire class, rather than just five or six students, to ob¬ serve dissections and other such demonstrations. Zoology, offered to advanced biology students, en¬ tails a further study into the animal kingdom. Dissec¬ tions progress to more complicated animals, such as sharks and cats. A study of mammalian circulation using the calf heart and lungs is also made. Physics, open to students meeting specified math re¬ quirements, includes the study of light, weight, heat, sound, density, radioactivity, and motion. Laboratory experimentation is an important part of chemistry classes. Chemistry includes a study of mix¬ tures, elements, compounds, and chemical reactions. An advanced chemistry course is offered to students who satisfactorily complete the first course. IMMORTAL WORDS, " leave no log uncovered, " spur Donna Nelson and Vickie Williams on to victory in the student versus insect struggle, inspired through Biology study. PHYSICS students Don Ward and James Bucko check the clockwise and counterclockwise motion of a lever by attempt¬ ing to evenly distribute the various lead weights. Much of class time is devoted to conducting experiments such as this to find the reaction of certain elements or forces when they are combined the results are astounding. SURPRISED by the reaction of a chemistry experiment which literally exploded are Cathy Callahan, Christine Brown, Richard Seagraves, Ronald Segally, and Ron Vol- brecht. The explosion, trig¬ gered by combining sulphur and zinc sulphate and then applying a lit magnesium fuse, demonstrates a composi¬ tion reaction. Mathematics Create Stimulating Challenge Principles which are the basis for algebra are stud¬ ied along with simple addition and subtraction in gen¬ eral mathematics. Practical experience is given to com¬ mercial math students who are business bound, by learning techniques of writing checks. Principles of buying real estate and insurance are part of the busi¬ ness math. Basic knowledge of mathematics is essential for every student at Morton. A variety of courses in mathematics for students with academic, general, and commercial programs prepare them for all walks of life. This year, for the first time, Morton students were allowed to pursue courses in modern algebra. In the future modern mathematics will replace the conven¬ tional forms of college preparatory mathematics. By memorizing a number of the orems and assump¬ tions, a pupil may develop his power of reasoning in plane and solid geometry courses. Pupils use these principles to prove relationships between geometric figures. Juniors and seniors wishing to continue mathematics at a higher level may decide on taking advanced algebra, trigonometry, and analytic geometry. STUDY AND DRILL help Linda McPheron learn the structure and method of the new modern algebra now being taught to Morton students. 25 PANEL MEMBERS Beth Stewart, Hillard Jasinski, Cynthia Ar- Cynthia ' s reasoning. Panels are frequently used to relate past vay, Mary Hluska, and Bob Meding analyze some of the finer world history incidents to present world situations, points of world history as Mr. Evans points out a flaw in World-Wide Problems Probed by Governors In order to understand the world of today one must be familiar with past events. The study of world his¬ tory enables students to explore, compare, and con¬ trast customs and cultures of foreign nations. Flooded with names, dates, facts, and figures, Uni¬ ted States history pupils acquire a basic knowledge of the heritage of their country. Through the colorful pages of the text book, students are taken back as far as the colonial period. The course attempts to relate current events with previous problems and solutions. An investigation of the federal, state, and local types of government serves as a platform for study in government classes. Conducting mock elections during state and local elections helped to introduce voting procedures and regulations to further voters . Geography, the descriptive science dealing with the surface of the earth, is explored by the geography classes with the aid of globes, maps, and charts. U.S. and World Affairs, an elective course, parallels current events in all parts of the world. JOHNSON OR GOLDWATER? Government students Joanne Frye, Brian Board, Larry Chaney, and Marcel Zlotnik par¬ ticipate in Morton ' s mock election. POINTING OUT certain countries in Europe to Pat Hlavaty, Larry Schmoekel shows how maps play an important part in the study of world geography. Students use and draw maps to become better acquainted with the globe, topography and climate of different countries, and major cities of the world. 27 Mastery of English Inspires Creativity Dangling participles, misplaced modifiers, and other aspects of grammar and composition are only part of the knowledge acquired in a student’s four years of English at Morton. Courses in literature, journalism, and speech are also included in the curriculum. During the freshman and sophomore years, gram¬ mar and literature are taught simultaneously. Juniors and seniors may take courses in advanced composition and American and English literature. Journalism prepares students for work on the two school publications, the TOP HAT and the MOR- TONITE, as well as teaching them the principles of good writing and the organization of thought. Speech students not only practice oration and self- expression, but also learn parliamentary procedure. Due to his appointment as Director of Secondary Education for the City of Hammond, Mr. Ellis Hays was replaced by Mr. Thomas Turpin in February. SOUVENIRS of Mrs. Kelly ' s trip to Great Britain help English literature students B. Taylor, L. Lee, and L. Banas learn about the customs and culture of England. BEING ABLE to use the library effectively is part of the basic knowledge acquired by every freshman taking English I. Mr. Elgas shows George Botman, Robert Matthews, Carol Sharpe, Randy Snyder, Kathy Herochik, and Lu Ann Schwandt the section of the library containing the reference materials. 28 " MYSTIFYING ORACLE OF OUIJA " is demonstrated in speech class by Marijo Cunningham while her entranced assistants, Dan Hull and Brian Doughman, try to communicate with an¬ other world. Demonstration speeches help all speech students gain the confidence and skill they will need for the course. PROOFING GALLEYS enables Donna Nelson and Sharon Knaver, journalism students, to learn the techniques of proof¬ reading used by TOP HAT and MORTONITE. PORTRAYING A SCENE from " Our Town " in American Liter¬ ature are Debbie Glegg and Allan Burns who assist in portray¬ ing a play without the use of scenery. Languages Introduce Customs and Culture Vocabulary and grammar are of prime concern to first year Latin students. Written composition, ad¬ vanced grammar, and Caesar’s commentaries on the Gallic Wars compose the course of study for second year pupils. Traditional marks, such as the “X” in the front of the room for those not reciting loudly enough, and “Siberia” in the back of the room for those talking without permission, are well known in Latin classes. Perhaps the most important element of German classes is translation. Students translate and review novel condensations such as Faust and William Tell. German philosophy, literature, and authors are stu¬ died by the advanced German class, which was offered for the first time this year. REPRIMANDING MR. RUFF, who stands on the " X " for not reciting his Latin translation loudly enough, is first year student Kathie Piwowar. GERMAN STUDENTS Jennifer Evans, Rich Volbrecht, and Roz some of the customs. The trip offers students the chance to visit Brenman discuss Rich ' s recent trip to Austria to study German. the countries related to the language they are studying. Mr. Jordan, who also went on the trip, listens as Rich explains 30 CHRISTMAS IN MEXICO, one of the posters adorning the walls of room 219, offers first year pupils George Dudzik, Ed Fer¬ guson, and Shelia Fowler an idea of how Christmas is ob- Translation, sentence composition, and basic con¬ versation are important components of French and Spanish classes. First and second year students con¬ centrate on fundamental grammar by building vocabu¬ lary and perfecting phonetic techniques. For the first time a fourth year of both Spanish and French was offered to students at Morton. In addition to conversing in Spanish and writing compositions, the advanced Spanish class translated a simplified version of the famous Spanish classic, Don Quijote, which aided in their understanding of the style of Spanish literature and writers. As part of the study of the customs of Spanish-speaking countries, students learned to make pinatas. The culture and customs of France were studied ex¬ tensively by the advanced French class. Students often made use of the tape recordings available to them to help improve translations and to practice pronunci¬ ation of the more difficult sounds. REPLAYING A RECORDING of her French pronunciation prac¬ tice is second year student Barbara White. Steve Vadas and Linda Inglis await their turn as they listen for errors in Bar¬ bara ' s pronunciations and phonetics. served in Mexico. Posters are displayed to acquaint students with various customs of pertinent countries studied in class. WORKING ATTENTIVELY foods class students Bonnie Wheat- meals. This teaches them the necessity of nutritional food and man and Shirley Neel hurry to finish the dishes by the end of the fundamentals to follow in order to plan a balanced menu, the period. During the hour, pupils prepare and consume Pupils Prepare for Home and Business Basic skills in the preparation of food are taught to both boys and girls. Students not only learn to cook a variety of foods, but also study the principles of nutrit¬ ion and the art of housekeeping. Girls studying clothing learn the art of co-ordinat¬ ing color and design. They start by making simple articles of clothing such as skirts and blouses, and work toward more complicated suits and coats. Home management students saw films and visited the Merchandise Mart in Chicago to supplement their knowledge of budgeting and managing a household. Business courses are offered to students who are not planning on a college education. Shorthand and stenography teach students basic office skills. Business law and salesmanship provide students with knowledge of commercial procedures which will benefit them in their future relations in business. CLOTHING STUDENT Nancy Toth uses her knowledge of garment making to stitch the seams of her skirt, which is one of the many projects accomplished in Clothing I. TAKING DICTATION furnished by Mr. Alexander helps sten¬ ography students Diana Hetterscheidt and Linda Johnson improve their shorthand speed and skills. WATCHING OBSERVANTLY while Miss Wolfe checks her typing exercise for errors is Iona Johnstone, who is trying to increase her speed and accuracy in typing. PORTRAYING BUYERS at a showing of the new 1965 auto- learn what a good sales approach should include. Bob Grace mobiles helps salesmanship students Clarence Williams, Larry uses pictures of several automobiles to emphasize his points. Pucalik, Dave Oberle, Tom O ' Brien, and Marsha Randolph 33 Shop Courses Supply Practical Experience Making precise measurements, constructing scale drawings, and exact lettering are a few of the skills acquired by mechanical drawing students. Using spe¬ cial tools designed to aid in drawing, both real and fictional problems from a text are solved in class. One of the more difficult problems deals with making three dimensional drawings on a two dimensional surface. Each task undertaken in the class prepares students for future work in industry. As students construct projects in woodshop class, they are taught the art of using power machines pro¬ perly and safely, as well as learning the tasks of pound¬ ing nails and carving and sawing wood in the correct manner to aid them in future constructions. In wood¬ work students learn to identify woods and their uses, to cut and dry lumber, to plan procedures, and to de¬ sign and construct projects. These activities give pupils the basic fundamentals of woodworking tools. WORKING CAREFULLY and diligently, Frank Padilla and Denis Colbert apply glue to a bookcase they are making as an assigned project in woodwork class. INVOLVED IN A SOLUTION, Jim Gasvoda thinks his problem tural scales, and other precision instruments are used by these out carefully while Bruce Dailey and Bob Hoffman attempt to students to make correct calculations and exact drawings, put their answers on paper. Compasses, slide rules, architec- 34 Fine Arts Encourages Cultural Achievement “Practice makes perfect” is a familiar saying to Morton vocal and instrumental music students. All Morton musical groups rehearse one period each day. In addition, practice rooms are provided for band and orchestra members to drill individually during their free periods throughout the week. As a result of the many hours of intense study, Mor¬ ton students are prepared for concerts, contests, and assemblies. Last year Morton’s band ranked second class, and the orchestra was rated first class in the Northern Indiana School Band, Orchestra, and Vocal Association contest in Goshen, Indiana. Self-expression is also the objective of art students. Pupils taking Art I and Art II learn the basic prin¬ ciples of design through painting and sculpturing. CONCENTRATED PRACTICE is necessary to prepare music students Jennifer Evans and Ronald Volbrecht to play a duet for an upcoming District Violin contest. As Morton’s Governors we take an active role in school organizations. Whether our abilities tend along academic or service lines, there is a club or organization in which we can release our talents and achieve a common goal. By working with others we are able to grow physically as well as emotionally, making us beter equipped to assume our place in the community and the world. 37 Top Hat Staff, Advisor Accept Responsibilities Publishing the actual book is only one phase of the production on the TOP HAT. Another important job is selling the yearbooks. Each homeroom has a representative who takes care of the TOP HAT sales in his homeroom. It is not necessary for the representative to be a member of the TOP HAT staff. The representatives distribute identification cards, imprinted with pictures, to the stu¬ dents who purchase yearbooks. The business staff, headed by Miss Janet Walcott, has an enormous job. One of the main sources of income is the sell¬ ing of ads, which take up much of the time of the staff members. Many of the places are contacted outside of school hours, starting in early June. BUSINESS STAFF members Bev Sheaks, Barb White, Advisor Janet Walcott, Carole Byrd, and LuEtta Parks supervise the bal¬ ancing of the budget for the Top Hat.

Anyone with writing ability and a de¬ sire to work on the annual yearbook may join the TOP HAT staff. This work is all voluntary and there are only two require¬ ments: students must have taken the journalism course and they must have a strong inclination to work. Students participating on the staff have to work continuously to produce an in¬ teresting and informative book. Upper¬ classmen are given sections, such as clubs, social, academics, faculty, or classes. Others offer help to section editors. After each section is assembled, they are com¬ bined to produce the completely ap¬ proved yearbook. Mrs. Helen Stock, advisor of the TOP HAT, teaches and guides the staff and the editors.

Bara- in a yearbook. 39 Those Excelling in Journalistic Production MORTONITE BUSINESS STAFF members handling finances and typing are — Marilyn Yeomans, Sandy Jarvis, Sue Powers, and Adele Bernacki. The business staff is an essential part of the produc¬ tion of a newspaper, and this is also true at Morton. The MORTONITE Business Staff handles all the money matters that are of greatest concern to the financial status of the paper. One of their main jobs is the selling of ads for the paper. This is the largest source of revenue during the school year. Quill and Scroll is an international organization available only to those journalism students who have worked on either the TOP HAT or MORTONITE Staff for a year and have done superior work. They must also be a junior or senior in the upper one-third of their graduating class. If the sponsor, Mrs. Helen Stock, finds a candidate eligible he is initiated and becomes a member. This year’s initiation, held at the editor’s home, was a candlelight ceremony, at which pins engraved with the position of the owner were awarded. The Quill and Scroll sponsored the Junior High¬ light, a junior high periodical. This was paid for by the junior high council and distributed to all students in homeroom. This was the first year for this publication. Another project was the selling of sweatshirts. The sweatshirts, embossed with Morton emblems, came in red and grey. Several members competed for college scholarships through writing and current event tests offered by the Quill and Scroll Society.

The club, sponsored by Miss Mabel Hunter, accepts only those with a 3.0 grade average for four consecutive semesters’ work. Students with the proper qualifications apply for membership and are voted on by the faculty. If a mem¬ ber’s average falls, he is not alowed to continue. Initiations are held twice a year. The winter initi¬ ation is conducted during an assembly. The six officers, dressed in satin robes, take part in the ceremony by explaining the ideals of the organization. Gold pins and engraved cards are awarded to the new members. DISCUSSING THE PURPOSE and aims of the National Honor Society are Sponsor Miss Mabel Hunter and President Tom Krughoff. 42 White, C.

The Senate has thir¬ teen members: four seniors, four juniors, three sophomores and two freshmen. The House consists of a representative and an alternate from each homeroom. During meetings, the Vice-President presides over the Senate and the Speaker of the House presides over the Representatives. Meetings are held approximately twice a month to take care of necessary busi¬ ness. This business usually includes the appropriation of money for school func¬ tions and the approval of school issues. Essentially, the Student Association is the link between the student body and the faculty at Morton High School. At Association meetings Congress dis¬ cusses the effects of administrative de¬ cisions on the student body and ways of improving the school. The Association is patterned after the U.S. Congress. CINEMA CLUB members are - Sitting — G. Markiewicz, W. Williamson. Standing — C. Mac- Arthur, B. Ortega, C. Childress, J. Kelly, G. Taggart, D. Douglas, J. Martin, B. Casey, G. Peters, E. Ingram.

Mr. Arthur Gibson, the sponsor, aids the members in learning the skills of operation. For the main activity of the year, the club visited a commercial television studio. However, the mem¬ bers were active every day in fulfilling special assign¬ ments to run the audio-visual equipment. Members received points for their services according to the time they devoted. At the end of the year letters and bars were given to the members with the proper points. Members of the Electronics Club are first acquaint¬ ed with the electronic theory. Throughout the re¬ mainder of the year, members strive to complete their electronic projects, such as the building of an amplifier. Mr. Robert Spry, the sponsor of the club, helped the members with these projects. Mr. Spry also selected members to prepare the programs for each meeting which included demonstrations of experiments and lec¬ tures. The club agreed that this proved to be an inter¬ esting way to explore the world of electronics. ELECTRONICS CLUB members are — Bottom Row — D. Lelito, J. Gromaire. Second Row — M. Pepelea, K.

Opportunities to study living organ- inis and their environments are offered to pupils in Biology and Zoology clubs. The purpose of the Biology Club is to further the understanding and interest in the biological sciences. The club, under the direction of Mr. Robert Spry, spon¬ sored its annual roller skating party in March. They also participated in various field trips and visited the Museums of Science and Industry and Natural History. Students interested in careers as med¬ ical lab technicians, physicians, nurses, or veterinarians all benefit from joining the Zoology Club, sponsored by Mr. Ju¬ lian Rasmussen. The club’s purpose is to further the knowledge and understanding in the field of zoology. Much of this knowledge is obtained through experi¬ mentation, lectures given by professors of various universities, lab demonstrations, and field trips. The club tries to encour¬ age its members to enter various science fairs, and, in past years, its members have won numerous honors. An annual bake sale furnishes activity funds.

Clubs Examine Human, Plant, Animal Life Students planning to enter the field of science re¬ ceive valuable experience and information by joining either the Chemistry or Physics clubs. The purpose of the Chemistry Club is to help the student learn more about chemistry as a career and an interest. In studying inorganic chemistry, the composi¬ tion of substances and the transformations which they undergo is analyzed. The club has visited many dif¬ ferent places accompanied by its sponsor, Mrs. Mary Pettersen. Purdue University laboratories, Standard Oil and Argonne National Laboratories were toured. To understand physics thoroughly, it is necessary to experiment outside of the regular physics class. The Physics Club, s ponsored by Mr. Howard Besch, en¬ ables the enthusiastic physics student to further experi¬ ment with physical concepts and gain added experience with scientific laws. The club members also learn ad¬ vanced mathematics in addition to working with in¬ animate matter which does not involve change. This club also toured the Standard Oil research plant to see how it operates and to receive added knowledge. The club members worked on many pro¬ jects, among them the building of an oscilloscope used for showing wavelengths and high frequencies. CHEMISTRY CLUB members are — Bottom Row — Pres. L.

After the death of Morton’s orphan, Kim Chun Yung, the Government Club, assisted by sponsors Mr. Joseph Gartner and Mr. Roy Moorehead, adopted two orphan girls from Viet Nam, Nguyen Thi Be and Nguyen Thi Trung. During the school year there were two fund-raising projects. The first was an assembly in which all the proceeds were given to the orphans; the other was the annual Winter Formal held on Feb¬ ruary 12 at St. Michael’s Hall. “Beaus and Arrows” was the name voted on by the club members. The children correspond with the club to inform it of their schooling, health, and needs. Travel Club, sponsored by Mr. George Nelson, has one main project during the year — to visit some dis¬ tinctive spot in the Midwest. The members’ dues fin¬ ance the trip. The students have imaginary visits through speakers, movies, slides, pamphlets, and dis¬ cussions. These convey the special interest places that the students cannot visit in person. Learning more about our country, its functions, and geography is vital at Morton. Acting Stressed Through Student Theatrics The major purpose of the Theater Guild, Stage Crew, and Thespians is to develop and create drama interest. Participating in dramatic activities and studying different plays enables the The¬ ater Guild members to achieve self-ex¬ pression and cultural growth. Stage Crew members are responsible for stage prop sand settings for plays, band concerts, and assembly programs. Thespians is an honorary service or¬ ganization made up of students who have earned points based on their dramatic service and ability. Membership points are approximately twenty hours each. On an average of twice a month, these three groups attend productions in Chi¬ cago, Gary, and various high schools. Planning, preparation, and production are the three main “P’s” involved in put¬ ting on a play. The major projects of these clubs consist of a fall musical, and a spring and winter play.

During the O.I.L. meetings, readings are prepared for contests and performances. Students are given a chance to use their initiative to interpre t the cuttings which include humorous, dramatic, and poetic. Members compete in the Calumet region speech meets every Tuesday night. They also enter state and national contests and win many awards. At the sectionals held at Clark High School seniors Barb Hallum and Kris Houser placed first — Barb, in dramatic and Kris in poetic interpretation. Second place was taken by senior Lucy Kennedy, and fifth place was won by Ellen Hawking, also a senior. Both girls had humorous readings. Sixth and seventh place honors were captured by freshmen Diane Christy and Linda Lowrance, respectively. Each year the members help the National Forensics League with-the annual pancake breakfast, and a party is given during the last week of school. " IN OUR COUNTRY right now, " begins Barbara Hallum, in practice for her speech given at one of the original oratory contests held during the year. VICTORY RIBBONS awarded to Lucy Kennedy, Kris Houser, and Barbara Hallum in original oratory contests are viewed with satisfaction by Mr. McNabney, sponsor of the Oral In¬ terpretation League. STAGGERING under the weight of trophies won by Morton ' s speech participants is humorous interpreter Lucy Kennedy. The members of the speech department have excelled in all divisions of competition. 50 N. F. L. MEMBERS are — Side — Sec. J. Cornelison, V.-Pres. D. Burton, Pres. L. Smith, Treas. M. Agnini.

Points Accumulated Through Speech Areas Composed of speakers competing in numerous contests, the National Forensics League strives for perfection both in in¬ dividual speaking and debating. This per¬ fection is reached only by the coordina¬ tion of genuine efforts of members and sponsors. Under the supervision of Mr. Jim McNabney and Mr. Thomas Turpin, the NFL has reached many of these goals. Membership is based on the point sys¬ tem. Points are accumulated through par¬ ticipation in debating, extemporaneous speaking, and oral interpretation. When a total of twenty-five points from com¬ petition has been reached, a student is qualified to become a member of NFL. Officers are not elected, but they receive their ranks on the basis of their points. The member having the highest number of points becomes the NFL president. The annual pancake breakfast, spon¬ sored by the NFL, raises money to meet their transportation expenses. Members gain experience by giving speech demon¬ strations for clubs and organizations. MEMBERS OF THE DEBATE TEAM are — Bottom Row — Sponsor Ellis Hays, B. Burton, J. Cornelison, D. Fix, H. Witte. Second Row — M. Agnini, L. Smith, D. Burton, C.

With the stroke of the baton, the crowd hushes and the musicians begin. Besides conducting the orchestra, Mr. Gregory gives individual music les¬ sons to prospective orchestra members. As well as leading the Senior Orchestra, he is in charge of the Junior Orchestra, which includes the Middle School. The members participated in the State Solo contest at Indianapolis in February. On January 10 the annual Winter Concert was presented. The String Quartet, the Morton Dance Band, and a soloist performed. They will represent the school in a contest in April. Last year the orchestra received a superior rating. The Girls’ Chorus is under the direction of Miss Barbara Miller. It is the Primary music group for girls. The girls join the other vocalists for concerts and assemblies, which are held in the auditorium. LOUIS GREGORY, conductor of the Morton High Senior Orchestra for eight years, confidently raises his baton to gain the attention of the musicians.

At Morton High School, students interested in musi¬ cal activities are able to further their ambitions through the vocal department, which includes approxi¬ mately seven percent of the student body. The department has four divisions — concert choir, girls’ choir, boys’ choir, and girls’ chorus. It stages the annual Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter assem¬ blies. The fall and spring concerts for the public help raise money for the department’s yearly expenses. The main expense is the purchase of new music. Christmas songs can be heard throughout the building as the music groups march through the halls caroling. During the second semester, all vocal department members are required to sell candy during the annual sales. Prizes are awarded to the thirteen highest salesmen. The various prizes range from stuffed animals to a portable televeision set. The proceeds from this sale are put in a fund for new choir robes. This year’s big attraction was the operetta “The Red Mill,” presented by the concert choir and dra¬ matics department members. Another of this year’s activities included a field trip to Chicago to see “Oliver” on stage at the Shubert Theater. A main feature of the vocal department is the “Swing 16,” a mixed vocal ensemble selected from the concert choir. This musical group, which was organ¬ ized in the spring of 1963, performs for assemblies, P TA meetings, concerts, and as entertainment for pro¬ fessional organizational meeting and parties.

Their main goal is donating their services where they are needed. The Homecoming bonfire, the city Hi-Y basketball tourney, and the goodwill baskets collected at Thanksgiv¬ ing are a few of the club’s activities. The annual “Mr. Ugly” contest and dance help to raise money for the Robert D. Newkirk Scholarship which is presented to the boy picked by the club members and the spon¬ sors as the most responsible. At Morton High School all Lettermen belong to the M-Club. Its members are representatives from the track, golf, foot¬ ball, wrestling, basketball, baseball, and cross country teams. However, certain re¬ quirements are necessary for obtaining a letter. Not every team memb er receives one. These requirements are different for every sport.

Y-Teens, an organization for girls, helps its members to realize their respon¬ sibility to their community and its citi¬ zens. To be a Y-Teen is to try to be religious, dependable, and friendly. Mem¬ bership is open to all races. Members are divided into two age groups. The Junior Y-Teens, sponsored by Mrs. Doris Fuller, is composed of freshmen and sophomores. Juniors and seniors make up the Senior Y-Teens, sponsored by Mrs. Lena Bonebrake. Potato chip sales, held annually in the spring, are one source of revenue. Some of the profits go toward the building of a new YWCA building. The remainder of the profits help to send the new presi¬ dent to a summer institute. For Christmas the girls repaired old toys for needy children. They also made arm rests by covering newspapers with sheets, and they made cancer pads. These they gave to patients in a nearby hospital.

Art Involves Much Time, Effort, Work Experimentation with new materials was the aim of this year’s Art Club. The members hoped to learn new techniques with metals and other substances. The sponsor, Mr. T. Waring, also hoped to teach the mem¬ bers skills other than those learned in class. Making enamelled copper jewelry was the main project for the year. The students made their own jewelry while gaining experience and skill in the large field of art. The self-supporting Photo Club trains members to use photo equipment and gives service to the school. The members obtain experience in taking, processing, developing, and enlarging pictures. Finances are ob-, tained from the sale of pictures. The club gives service’; to the Mortonite, Top Hat, and the Hessville Lite. Photography as a hobby often develops into a pro¬ fession through encouragement by the club. Members are permitted to use equipment on weekends for out¬ side practice. An exhibit of photographs was displayed for the PTA. Photo Club enables students to learn photography while serving their school organizations. PHOTO CLUB members are — Left Row — Pres. D. Rasmussen, V.-Pres. B. McAnally, Sec.-Treas. L. Parks, S.

One of their helpful projects was the making of scrapbooks. These books consisted of comics bound together in book form and were given to the people staying at the Lake County Convales¬ cence Home in Crown Point. Each per¬ son received a small gift in addition to the scrapbook. Last February, in order to raise money for the gifts, the Girls’ Club held a bake sale. At club meetings projects were dis¬ cussed and a good grooming program was carried out by the members. At one meet¬ ing two future cosmetologists from one of the beauty colleges demonstrated hair styling and dressing. Under the super¬ vision of Miss Jacqueline Martine, the girls, through membership in this club, learn that charity strengthens character. CLIPPING MAGAZINE ARTICLES to make scrapbooks for hospital patients and repairing old aprcin| used in cooking classes are just two of the many projects carried pn by the Girls ' Club this year.

The sponsors, Mr. Robert Welte and Mr. Donald Wools, assist in supporting Mor¬ ton’s athletic teams. The Booster Club members sold booster tags to raise money for equipment for the athletic depart¬ ment. At the end of each baseball season, prizes donated by stores were awarded to winning tag holders. This year the club’s main purpose was to build an organized cape section for basketball games. All students participat¬ ing wore plain white blouses or shirts. Wearing their cords, seniors formed a black top hat at the sectionals. The red hat band was formed by the B-team cheerleaders. The Spanish Club, sponsored by Mrs. Grace Marion, is open to pupils with two years’ language experience. The members had a Spanish dinner in the cafeteria and served tacos, tostados, salad, and dessert. The following day, the desserts not eaten were sold at the bake sale. The profits the club made went toward a dinner. SPANISH CLUB members are — Bottom Row - L. Foss, J. B. Mola, P. Cole, D. Nelson, S. Barnes, C. Blackman, L. Fur- Osbome, Treas. L. Blackman, Sec. P.

Each worker is then assigned a shelf of books to keep neat and in order. These workers help students locate materials throughout the library. They assist the students in checking out the books and re-shelf them when re¬ turned. The workers must be able to use the card catalogues so they can explain its use to others. Reading good books broadens the mind and in¬ creases knowledge. This is the main purpose of the Literature Club. Members read Oepidus Rex, a Greek drama by Sophocles, as well as French plays such as The Miser. Open discussions of fthe books took place during the meetings. Each member held a specific office with his own duties. The members each portray¬ ed a different character in the books- and read their parts aloud. This led to better understanding and in¬ terpretation of the books. The sponsor, Mrs. Norma Kelly, took part in the discussions along with the members. LITERATURE CLUB members are J. Evans, R.

By teaching in the elementary classes the girls apply techniques they have learned through this club. Speakers, movies of teaching, and reports by teach¬ ers’ assistants are offered to club members. Each year a scholarship is given to some graduating senior. It enables the deserving student to enter a college and sets a standard for the students to maintain. Helping students to learn about nursing require¬ ments is the purpose of the Future Nurses, sponsored by Miss Laura Gibson, school nurse. This club now has a National Charter. The girls also help to promote special education programs and community health. This year the members collected for the cancer drive. Some of the members donate their spare time to work as Volunteens at St. Margaret’s Hospital to gain a knowledge of nursing. Next year the club will spon¬ sor a girl for this service and pay for her training. FUTURE TEACHERS of America Club members are — Left Row — D. Sheldon, R. Wells, L. Kohl, D. Wright, M. Yeomans, J.

Many Helped by Clubs and Financial Drives One of Morton’s most worthwhile clubs is the Tutor’s Club. Upperclassmen with a 3.0 average are eligible to join. Miss Wilma Clair, school counselor, supervises the members. She and the members work together devoting their extra time to assist students who are experiencing difficulty with a subject. Fifty cents an hour is charged for services. Twenty percent of this goes to the club. Money from the club’s own treasury is used for students desiring help but who are unable to pay. After this expense the remainder of the money is given to further the education of a de¬ serving student. Last year the money went to Morton’s Kim Chun Yung. In the future the club hopes to secure pins with money raised from a bake sale. Assignments are given out during meetings and problems concerning the tutoring services as well as ways of bettering the club are also discussed. For the annual Community Chest Tour this year, four students were chosen to represent Morton. They joined representatives from all other Hammond schools and toured the YWCA, Carmelite Home for Boys, Brooks House, and the Good Will Industry. After these tours, they went to Tech to hear speakers discuss how the Community Chest money was used to help others. In order to acquaint the entire student body with the purposes of the Chest, an assembly was given.

Bookstore workers, under the guidance of Mrs. Gladys Reynolds, the financial secretary of Morton, sell school supplies, tickets to all the school dances, as well as football and basketball game tickets. Sorting mail, writing admits, record¬ ing attendance, and running the ditto machine are a few of the tasks of the of¬ fice helpers. These “girl-Fridays” also serve the administration and faculty.

Our team, supported by loyal fans and the desire for victory, welcomes competitions. Healthy competition nurtures sportsmanship allowing our Governors to accept victory as well as defeat. 69 Governors Use Stamina to Acquire Experience Exhibiting a style of play that seldom wanted ac¬ tion. the 1964 Morton football team endeavored to up¬ hold “that Governor tradition” and succeeded partial¬ ly in recording a 2-6 season. Troubled by a series of close losses added to in¬ juries and suspensions, Coach Maurey Zlotnik’s 25th Morton team went five games before securing its first victory, 19 to 0, over a South Bend Adams team which had lost by only two touchdowns to the defending state champions from Elkhart. After a good start in the East Chicago Football-O- Rama, the Governors disappointed fans by losing to city rivals Clark and Tech. Following two one-point losses to Whiting and Bishop Noll, the Governors suf¬ fered a 20 to 0 defeat at the hands of ninth-ranked East Chicago Roosevelt. Morton then blasted Adams. Eager for a mate to go with its first victory, Morton fell to city champion Hammond High in the belated M.H.S. Homecoming. The final game of the season saw the Governors score a 46 to 14 shellacking of the Calumet Warriors. This game provided Morton fans with not only a glimpse into the past, but also a very pleasing peek into the Governors’ future. WITH HANDS OUTSTRETCHED, Jim Gasvoda and an unknown Wildcat reach for the fickle football during the Morton- H.H.S. contest which the Cats won, 19 to 6. CHARGING FORWARD determinedly, backs Rich Volbrecht, Ron Volbrecht, and Darrel Chaney pre¬ pare to " obliterate " the opposition. " OUT OF THE WAY, EAGLE!

Second Row — Mgr. G. Bagley, F. Padilla, B. Biscan, Morton’s 1964 edition of “the fighting Governors” established the reputation as one of the Calumet Area’s more balanced squads, with eleven gridders scoring at least one touchdown. Six of the team’s sixteen touch¬ downs were scored via the air route, while the remain¬ ing ten were ground out on the turf. Oddly enough, the team’s high scorer was junior end Jim Gasvoda, whose “sticky” fingers gathered in four touchdown passes from Darrel Chaney. Morton’s number one rusher was junior Dan Hull, whose 358 yards in 95 carries accounted for three M. H.S. scores. Sophomore Ron Volbrecht took the prize for the best yardage per carry, 7.25. Despite the fact that the Governors ended with a record quite lopsided in the loss column, Morton’s struggling defense managed to hold its eight oppon¬ ents to only 100 points, while the M.H.S. offensive machine scored 103 tallies. It is interesting to note that twelve of the sixteen Governor touchdowns were scored by underclassmen, providing fans with a premonition that better things lie ahead for Morton and those who support her.

Morton’s rousing victory over Calumet in the season’s final contest marked the pleasa nt end of Maurey Zlotnik’s twenty-fifth year as Head Foot¬ ball Coach and Athletic Director at Morton. Mr. Zlotnik, a graduate of Hammond High, first came to Morton in 1939 to serve as freshman football coach. When Morton became a senior high school in 1951, Mr. Zlotnik was appointed Head Football Coach and Athletic Director, two posts he has held ever since. During the basketball seasons of 1959 and 60, Coach Zlotnik also served as freshman basketball coach. In addition to these time-consuming duties, he conducts frosh classes. During these past twent-five years, Coach Zlot¬ nik has fielded some very good teams, and some very bad. Undoubtedly his best was the 1961 squad, which notched nine victories without de¬ feat, secured the city and co-state championships, and resulted in the selection of Mr. Zlotnik as Lake County’s Coach of the Year in 1961. Morton’s “coach of the year” every year, Mr. Zlotnik has taught hundreds of young men valu¬ able lessons in life as well as in football. He de¬ serves our thanks for a quarter century of service to Morton and the community. A coach thinks a lot. Sometimes he even laughs. HALFTIME TALKS are important if a coach is to rectify mis¬ takes. Here Coach Zlotnik attempts to give weary Governors some valuable pointers before the second half begins. IN THE TENSENESS of a halftime locker-room, it is Coach Zlotnik who must inspire the weary Governors to greater ef¬ forts in the second half of this close contest. 74 Padilla, J. Martin, J.

Boasting a consistently-powerful offense and a rarely-weak de¬ fense, the Governor junior varsity won four games, lost none, and tied one — par for the B-squad course. Coach Bob Gollner’s charges scored their one-sided romps over Hammond Clark and E. C. Roosevelt, while playing solid football in defeating E. C. Wash¬ ington and Bishop Noll. Only Hammond Gavit was able to score more than one touchdown on the victory- minded eleven in a 13 to 13 deadlock. Through solid practice on the B-squad, Governor players worked to be ready for varsity ball, which will test their stamina and strength even more. REPETITION of important plays was essential to the Governor B-team as it attempted to reach the standards of the varsity. 75 Frosh Begin Trek to Varsity, End 2-3-2 LEARNING FOOTBALL FUNDAMENTALS were these freshmen Third Row — J.

Washington 0 For the first time in many years, Morton’s freshman football team failed to win more games than it lost. Gaining valuable experience which will enable them to fit easily into the varsity program, the Governor year¬ lings wound up the season with two victories, three de¬ feats, two ties, and valuable experience. For Coach Jack Georgas, the season could be called somewhat disappointing. There were, however, several encouraging signs which point to a possibly bright Governor showing in the future. First and foremost among frosh assets was the de¬ sire of the group to excel, whether on top of the score or not. This desire was demonstrated by the defense, which, excepting two games, held opponents to just one touchdown and one extra point. Following a 24 to 7 setback at the hands of East Chicago Washington, the M.H.S. yearlings humbled Hammond Tech, 13 to 0. A close contest with the Wildcats ended in an 8 to 0 win for HHS. The following game saw Morton hold Hammond Gavit scoreless. However, the young Gladiators turned the same trick, and the game ended in a 0 to 0 dead¬ lock. Next on the schedule was Hammond Clark, which rallied to eclipse the Governors, 19 to 13. The final two games marked the high point of a season not abundant with high points. The young Gov¬ ernors bested Bishop Noll, 6 to 0, and turned the tables on East Chicago Washington by holding the Senators to an exciting but muddy scoreless knot. 76 Hill and Dalers Race to Successful Season VARSITY X-COUNTRY RECORD Morton Opponent 38 Hammond Tech 19 32 Gary Wallace 4th Hammond City Meet 23 33 T.

Morton fell to the Gladiators, 62 to 54 although the game was very close. Relying heavily on untested underclassmen and a nucleus of two returning starters, Morton’s defense- minded Governors finished the season with six win s in 21 contests. Banding together behind juniors Darrel Chaney and Jim Gasvoda, the inexperienced Gover¬ nors won the first two games of the year and showed much promise despite the won-lost record. The Governors used a tenacious defense to hold most of their opponents to a low score, but the M.H.S. offensive machine was not quite polished enough to take advantage of the opportunities open to it. The season began on a pair of happy notes — vic¬ tories over Whiting and LaPorte. The latter win was especially gratifying, since not even Morton’s Section¬ al runners-up of 1962 were able to overcome the Slicers. A close loss to eventual Hammond City Cham¬ pion Bishop Noll was followed by another close defeat, this time at the hands of city foe Hammond Tech. Al¬ though unsuccessful in contests against St. Joseph of South Bend, East Chicago Roosevelt, and Chicago Dunbar, the Governors pasted Whiting’s Oilers in the first game of the Whiting Holiday Tournament. Ad¬ vancing to the championship game, the Governors were nipped by Elmhurst High of Fort Wayne. ATTENTION seems to be focused on the ceiling in this tense play during the Clark game. Senior guard Zbig Rybicki at¬ tempts to get off a shot, only to have it blocked by a Pioneer defender. As the ball soars out of camera range, players of both squads attempt to get in position to retrieve it. Close Losses Rob Govs of Winning Season The post-Christmas schedule began with a heart¬ breaking loss to down-county foe Griffith, 61 to 59. The following Saturday saw Morton’s first venture of the year into the state limelight, where the Governors fell first to highly-rated Valparaiso and then to Muncie South, one of the final eight teams in the state tourney, in the consolation contest of the Valparaiso New Year’s Tournament. Morton broke the losing habit by demolishing Gary Wallace and, after losses to Gavit, Terre Haute Gar¬ field, and sectional favorite Highland (the latter by just five points), the Morton squad took a morale¬ boosting 57 to 52 victory over city foe Clark. Gary Wirt’s Troopers took their toll of the Gover¬ nors, but Hobart felt the brunt of Morton’s scoring power, 85 to 65, in the best offensive showing of the year. The final regular season game saw the Governors fall to city arch-rival and eventual Sectional Champion Hammond High, 61 to 53, although the scrappy Gov¬ ernors held the lead until midway in the last period. WITH TIME RUNNING OUT in the Gavit confest, senior Larry Lee fires the ball off, only to have it blocked. Defense Stressed as Governors Limit Foes Boasting nine players with shooting averages of .400 or better, six of them underclassmen, the 1964-65 Morton Governors provided excitement and interest despite the lack of complete success. Although victory celebrations were not too com¬ mon in the Governor camp, Morton’s Varsity round- ballers did exemplify teamwork and the type of effort which goes into the making of a successful team. Most teams in this era of fast-moving basketball concentrate on the offsensive aspects of the game. Scores of games mount higher and higher, while team defenses lose more and more of their importance. In focusing their efforts toward defensive success, the Governors limited all but three opponents to under 70 points. Only highly-ranked teams from Valparaiso, Muncie, and Terre Haute were able to fully solve the tenacious Governor defensive machine. Named this year’s Most Valuable Player was junior Jim Gasvoda, whose 220 rebounds helped to keep the Governors in many games, as did his 233 season points. Leading the Governor scoring was junior Dar¬ rel Chaney, while another junior, Ken Bocken, led all Morton starters in shooting percentage. With only three seniors on the entire Varsity roster during the year, hopes are high that the experience gained this year may aid the team in the future. A solid nucleus of returning Governors will be aided by the addition of those players now on the B-squad. MORTON ' S 64-65 GOVERNORS ARE L. Lee, B. Harvey, D. and managerial staff includes Mgr. R.

Now in his fifth year as Governor mentor. Coach DePeugh has a 50-55 overall record. LEAPING HIGH for a possible two points are Governors Bill Harvey and Jim Gasvoda, while teammate Darrel Chaney Governors Fight and Fall in Sectional Seasons, especially long ones, always end with the fervent hope that the favorite team will upset a highly- ranked squad in the sectional tournament. Such was the case at Morton as fan enthusiasm reached its peak in the close loss to Hammond High. With a 6-15 record behind them, the Governors en¬ tered Civic Center to do battle with Griffith. Except for an extremely poor start against the Panthers, Mor¬ ton kept up with the eventual victors, point for point. Were it not for a frigid first few minutes, the Governor roundballers would have been around the following night to meet the eventual sectional champion, H.H.S. Junior veteran Darrel Chaney led the Morton team in scoring with 18 points, while Most Valuable Player Jim Gasvoda scored 11. Of the ten Governors who saw action in the sectional, seven will return next year. FOUR FEET separate the basketball from the hoop as junior Darrel Chaney attempts to add two more points to the Gover¬ nor cause. Morton fell, 63 to 52, to Griffith. Will-Be ' s Trip Seniors in Annual Classic With a crash bang and a hearty “Hi-Yo Has-Beens!”, the joys and disappointments of the 1964-65 sea¬ son were forgotten as the annual Has-Been vs. Will-Be donnybrook took center stage. The usual cere¬ monies before, during, and after the game were observed, accompanied by the usual class rivalry evident in every senior-underclass contest. After a close first quarter, the Will-Be’s, under Coach DePeugh’s direction, defeated the departing seniors by a score of 87 to 65. SENIOR Tom EaMnger displays the Has- Been 8-ball as his cohorts, Frank McCay, Larry Chaney, Jim Sherer, and Doug Starewicz exhibit victory smiles. The smiles were to no avail — the seniors lost. AS SENIOR FANS and players alike look on, junior Ken Bocken aims a jump shot at the basket. IT LOOKS LIKE trouble ahead for junior letterman Darrel Chaney as a seemingly-headless Has-Been leaps high to block his shot in the annual class contest. 83 MORTON ' S JUNIOR VARSITY of 1964-65 includes Mgr. R. Skaggs, M. Mestrovich, Rich Volbrecht, T. O ' Brien, Ron Vol- brecht, E. Johnson, R. Skamay, D. Chesney, J. Fozkos, M. Guiden, Coach Howard Stout. Freshmen T. George and L. Robertson also participated on the B-team later in the season.

Garfield 75 47 Hammond Clark 32 34 Hammond B-Teom Tourney 55 This year’s Junior Varsity basketball squad wound up with eight victories and nine defeats in a season abundant with excitement. Taking the court about an hour before the varsity contests, the B-squad featured average shooting and a tenacious, scrappy defense. The B-team Governors managed to fight their way to the final game of the Hammond B-team tourney, where they were defeated by East Chicago Roosevelt. Following a two-point loss to Whiting after taking a 15 to 0 advantage, the Governors edged LaPorte, 44 to 43, setting the stage for the Varsity upset. Bishop Noll drubbed the Morton jayvees, 51 to 34, and Hammond Tech was successful in a thrilling game, 38 to 37. Next came a trouncing at the hands of St. Joseph of South Bend, a close loss to Roosevelt of East Chi¬ cago, and a three-point win over Chicago Dunbar, the second win in two years against the junior Mighty Men from the Windy City. An eleven-point win over the junior varsity from Hammond High and a victory over Bishop Noll in the return match set the stage for the loss to Roosevelt in the tourney championship, 36 to 33. Victories over Griffith, Gary Wallace, and Ham¬ mond Gavit preceded a loss to the unbeaten B-team from Highland, 47 to 41. Terre Haute Garfield down¬ ed the Governors, 75 to 51, and Hammond High ac¬ complished a victory following a Governor win, 47 to 32, over Hammond Clark. 84 Freshmen Cain Experience, Four Victories Although not victorious in a majority of its con¬ tests, this year’s freshman basketball squad did dis¬ play some of the many attributes which a good team must have. Led by two players who later joined the Varsity, Tom George and Larry Robertson, the year¬ ling Governors ought for four victories while losing seven. Three of the seven losses were extremely close and could have easily gone the other way. A tense, exciting season opener was staged against Bishop Noll Institute, with the visiting Warriors edging Morton, 48 to 42. Another close defeat at the hands of Gavit preceded the first Gov win of the year, 35 to 32 over East Chicago Roosevelt. The real highlight of the short frosh year came with a 61 to 46 rout of crosstown rival Hammond High. Losses to East Chicago Washington (twice) and Bishop Noll set the stage for the highest offensive game of the year, 63 to 56 over Clark. The season ended on a rather sour note as Roosevelt took revenge for an earlier defeat and routed Morton in the Freshman tournament held at Morton. The Govs, however, did finish as the number two freshman team in the city. Morton FRESHMAN RECORD Opponent 42 Bishop Noll 48 34 Hammond Gavit 37 35 E.C. Roosevelt 32 61 Hammond 46 58 E.C.

Grappling B-Team Wins Gavit Tournament Smacking up against some of the better squads in the area and the state, Morton’s Varsity and B-team wrestlers of 1964-65 distinguished themselves by tak¬ ing a combined total of thirteen victories. Both divisions of wrestling at Morton started the year off with a bang, the Varsity smashing East Gary, 46 to 8, and the B-squad taking an even bigger win over the Eagles, 49 to 3. During most of the year, the pattern set by the B-team in the preliminary match was followed by the Varsity. Notable exceptions are the B-team’s wins over Horace Mann and Edison followed by Varsity losses to those same teams. High points of the B-team season include a 34 to 18 victory over rugged East Chicago Roosevelt, a first place in the Gavit Tourney, and a 39 to 9 stomp¬ ing of Gary Edison. Although the team finished with three straight losses, each one could have easily gone the other way as the scores indicate. With a 7-7 season behind them, the Governor grap- plers entered the Hammond Sectional. Numerous members of the squad won their preliminary matches, and veteran wrestlers Jeff Andres and Jim Sherer were victorious in the final round, thus qualifying for the Regionals. Despite the two Sectional victors from Mor¬ ton, the Governors came up two points shy of the title, marking the closest Morton High has ever come to a sectional championship in wrestling.

Roosevelt 1 Again exhibiting a style of play which has carried Morton baseball squads to success upon success in the past, the Governors of 1964 notched nine victories, five of them over Hammond rivals. Only Clark was able to stop the M.H.S. nine from a clear sweep of city public schools, and that close defeat was avenged later in the year by a score of 9 to 7. Taking the field for the first time since the in¬ credibly successful season of 1963, the Governor base- ballers trounced William Wirt, 7 to 1. Losses to Clark and Whiting preceded the big game of the early sea¬ son, a 9 to 7 slugfest victory over Hammond High. Now confident of their power and possibilities, the Governors went on to defeat Hammond Tech, Ham¬ mond Gavit (twice), Hobart, Thornton Fractional North, Hammond Clark, and East Chicago Roosevelt. Close losses to Calumet, East Chicago Washington, Hobart, Gary Roosevelt, and Thornton Fractional South dented the Governor record a bit, but the team did finish above the .500 mark, the sixth straight year that they have been able to do this. Through a determined team effort and the excellent coaching of veteran helmsman Jack Georgas, the 1964 Morton Governors rightfully upheld the title given them by an area writer: “Yankees of the Calumet.” Uphold High Governor Baseball Standards With the memory of six consecutive successful seasons haunting it, the 1965 Morton baseball team took to the dia¬ mond to prove that this year’s squad is as good as, or better than, those which pre¬ ceded it. Sporting several regulars and “near-regulars” from the squad which won nine games in 1964, the Gov base- ballers have high hopes of taking the title which has graced the halls of Morton for many years: that of City Champion. Every aspect of the game is represent¬ ed by one or more adept Gov players. Pitching is taken care of by senior Don Ward and junior Bob Biscan. Senior Lar¬ ry and junior Darrel Chaney carry the brunt of the batting load, while such players as Tim Sumner and Dave Cop- page more than hold up their end out on the field. In addition, Coach Georgas gas a strong bench from which to draw. Already the team has shown definite signs of greatness, slapping Crown Po int in the opener, 3 to 0, and following it with victories over Wirt and Washington. The Governors have shown without delay that they intend to be recognized. SENIOR INFIELDER Tim Sumner prepares to field an opponent ' s grounder in a close game. Teamwork such as this has enabled Morton to win the city championship almost annually since the first M.H.S. season in 1956. SPRINTING for first base is senior cather Zbig Rybicki. In this tense game Zbig was safe and so was Mor¬ ton, 3 to 0. Governors Cover All Aspects of Baseball BATTING remains the primary concern of Morton ' s baseball team, as junior Tom O ' Brien shows in this hit. MORTON ' S SUCCESSFUL battery of Don Ward and Zbig Rybicki takes center stage in this crucial victory over East Chicago Roosevelt ' s Rough Riders. Pitching and catching, two very important assets which every team must have, were both possessed by the Morton Governor baseball team of 1964. 1965 VARSITY TRACK - Bottom Row - D. Mustoe, T.

Track and Field Teams Gain Moral Victories Although the Morton track team of 1964 won only one meet in the seven in which it participated, the Governors who took part secured valuable experience which will be of help in the cinder seasons to come. With a primarily underclass aggregation, Coach Nick Luketic saw that 1964 would be a year of trial and error, a year of experimenta¬ tion and revamping. This was proven beyond a doubt after the first few meets. Bishop Noll and Hammond Clark, normally downed by Morton in early indoor meets, both took their tolls of the Governors. Only Horace Mann of Gary was not able to score a victory. However, fine individual performances par¬ tially cancelled out the effects of a losing sea¬ son, as sprinters Bob Salach and John Ger¬ ovac, broad-jumper Joe Krucina, and high- jumper Ron Volbrecht did their team and their school proud — as did many other members. It was perhaps the poor showing by the Governors early in the season that prompted them to try harder later on. This was shown in the fact that the Morton team finished last in the City Indoor meet, but defeated two Ham¬ mond rivals in the outdoor meeting. TAYLOR races for the tape. PIERSON " chugs along.

Looking back to an eventful but somewhat less than joyous season in 1965, the returning tracksters and new additions began the 1965 season in high hopes of bettering last year’s record. Although the Governors were defeated in the Bishop Noll relays and later in the dual meet with the Warriors, the show¬ ing made by all members of the team was better than at the same time last year. Although Calumet trounced the Morton tracksters, the next two meets were more successful. Despite the fact that M.H.S. has not as yet set any new area records, it is apparent that the rebuilding process be¬ gun last year will pa yoff in the near future. Leaders in som of the track and field events are Ron Volbrecht in the high jump, Joe Krucina in the broad jump, John Gerovac in the half mile run, and Paul Scott in the hurdle events. In their attempts to learn from past mistakes and to merit by them in the future, Morton’s track team has enjoyed the coaching leadership of Nick Luketic and his assistant, Howard Stout.

BLACK AND GRAY senior cords were the choice of the members of the class of ' 65. Chris Brown and Glynn Glad participate in the traditional autographing of skirts and trousers. STUDYING for the future are National Merit Schol¬ arship Semi-Finalists-Kris Houser, Tom Krughoff, Bob Florence, and Allen Nagy. Kris Houser was also the recepient of the DAR award. Morton’s class of ’65 excelled in scholastic achievements. Two students from the Senior class were chosen to speak at Com¬ mencement this year, instead of the traditional salutatorian and valedictorian. This change was due to the entirely new system of class ranking. Seniors, in preparing for Commencement and Baccaulaureate, were measured and fitted for their caps and gowns. The final climax of the year came when the graduates made the traditional procession to “Pomp and Circumstance” at the Commencement services. Good character, citizenship, and a fine knowledge of history are the qualities needed for the Daughter’s of the American Revolution Award. Kris Houser, having displayed these qualities, received this award. Kris was also a National Merit Scholarship finalist. Seniors with exceptionally high scores on the National Tests became semi-finalists and later took the finalists tests. Morton had our semi-finalists this year, who later became finalists. Win¬ ners receive these honors on the basis of tests results, high school grades, extra activities and school official recommendations. PREPARING for graduation day, Janice Zea, Jim Kiger, and Linda Kohl put final touches on their robes. Gowns this year were a metallic blue color with matching caps and tassels. Jr. Officers Proud to Represent Class JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS, Vice-Pres. Darrell Chaney, Sec. Sue Powers, and Pres. Tom Kerr, devote themselves to the task of improving their class and preparing juniors for " Senioritis. " As upperclassmen, MHS juniors have experienced several changes this year. New advanced courses in chemistry and English offered juniors unusual scholas¬ tic opportunities and helped them attain higher aca¬ demic achievements. Although these Governors were kept busy studying, they had their share of fun, too. Planned by the Junior Executive Board, their float, “We’re Robin’ the Archers of Victory,” was to be in the homecoming parade scheduled for September 26. Due to unfavorable weather, the Fort Wayne South game was cancelled and homecoming festivities were postponed until October 30. Since the homecoming game was played against Hammond High, the class of ’66 rallied to build a second float. Sponsors Miss Jacqueline Martine and Mr. Walter Ruff, with the help of the Junior Executive Board Members, made preparations for this year’s prom, “Unforgettable,” held at the Dorchester Club. The After-Prom Party, also held at the Dorchester Club, was made possible through the combined efforts of the class sponsors and the parents of Morton juniors. 124 isa Castro rolyn Cergizan Nancy Chamberlain Darrel Chaney Gary Chansler Barb Chess Bob Chorba James Clapp Jim Clauson Dale Coapstick Penny Cole David Coppage Kathy Copper John Cornelison Cindy Cowan Sandra Cox Dannielle Crane Linda Crawford Cookie Creekmore Marilyn Creekmore Dennis Dawson Rich Decker Sue Dietrich Bill Dowling Paula Dowling Linda Dyar Final Year at MHS Anticipated by Juniors 125 Executive Board Guides Junior Class ; Makes JUNIOR EXECUTIVE BOARD members, striving to achieve dis¬ tinction for the class of ' 66, are Bottom Row — Cecilia Sherer, Lenore Brandenburg, Nancy Thielen, Melanie Ignazito, Sue Powers, and Tom Kerr.

" We ' re Robin ' the Archers of Victory, " their first attempt, was handicapped by rain. Steve Saksa, Lenore Brandenburg, and Cookie Creek- more are working on " Friar Zlotnik " and finishing the flower target which the Morton Governors hoped to hit with victory. Entering their last year as underclassmen, sopho¬ mores found high school more appealing. Class officers and interested students attended meetings held to or¬ ganize present and future activities. The future home¬ coming floats were discussed and arrangements for the time and place of the Junior-Senior Prom were made. Having sufficient funds in the treasury, sponsors Mrs. Lena Bonebrake and Mr. Donald Woolls agreed money-raising projects would not be necessary. As sophomores, they were no longer subject to the friendly ridicule freshmen receive from upperclassmen. Because the B-team cheerleaders consisted of some sophomore girls and the boys played an important part on the team, there was more participation and a greater interest in high school sports this year. Committees were chosen to plan the Sophomore “Get-Together” held April 30. This party enabled classmates to become better acquainted. The date for the election of officers was advanced one week to allow the candidates to give their election speeches. SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS considered by their classmates to have the ability needed to lead their class are — Pres. Hazel Witte, Vice-Pres. Betty Bakker, and Sec. Linda McTaggart.

" Freshmen Overcome Election Difficulties Due to lack of communication and understanding, the scheduled election for the ninth graders was post¬ poned until enough candidates were nominated for office. These difficulties were overcome as the new Governors gained interest in the welfare of their class. Although a part of Morton’s newly established “mid¬ dle school,” the students still considered themselves freshmen in high school. Even though the ninth graders were not allowed to attend the regular assem¬ blies, they had several of their own. A pep assembly was held to help arouse their school spirit and to give these young Governors an additional interest in sports. These middle schoolers studied a variety of high school subjects ranging from foreign languages and algebra to shop and home economics. Gym classes and study halls were also a part of their daily schedule. FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS are - Pres. Ron Canaday, Sec. Karen Young, and Vice-Pres. Janet Blackman. i £r , rk ; 7 4 99 t fir i , I i (JiJ ft ft a ft 1 ft ft 0 9 a 1 IQ 1 ft , ,) WAITING in line to get a schedule change requires per¬ severance and spare time.

Freshmen Terry Hiduke and George Dudzik begin to count their " pennies " , while Marquita Jenkins, bookstore attendant, looks on sorrowfully. 139 Administration Regulates Activities Serving his third year as the principal of Morton High School, Mr. W. Winston Becker has had many extra responsibilities concerning the construction of the new Oliver P. Morton High School, scheduled for completion during the fall term of 1966. Besides mak¬ ing plans for the new school, he must also take care of his duties at the present home of the Governors. Mr. Becker must approve the various school activities, con¬ fer with the faculty members on the many problems facing the school this year, and talk with Dr. Joseph Hendrick, Superintendent of Hammond Public Schools, from time to time on various school issues. The most pressing of these problems is how to cope with the over-crowded study halls and lunch hours. Mr. William Volk, head of discipline, and Mr. Charles Chidester, head of curriculum, have also had special problems to handle this year. The switch-over to I.B.M. has complicated the scheduling and planning of the programs of both teachers and students. PRINCIPAL OF MORTON High School, Mr. W. Winston Becker, has served in his position for three years. VICE-PRINCIPALS Mr. Wil¬ liam Volk, in charge of dis¬ cipline, and Mr. Charles Chidester, in charge of curric¬ ulum, discuss some current school counseling problems, which include how to help a student choose the right col¬ lege or university. HAMMOND ' S SCHOOL BOARD members are - Seated - Mrs. T. Allen, Mrs. L. Stern. Standing — Mr. C. Scott, Dr. H. Eggers, Mr. L. Bereolos, and Superintendent Dr. P. Hendrick. The Board, elected on a bipartisan basis, meets twice each month to decide its policy on governing the Hammond public schools. COUNSELORS Mrs. Nancy Squibb, Mr. George Kurteff, and Miss Wilma Clair work hard to keep records in order. Most of the day, however, is spent counseling the students. Faculty Members Enjoy Outside Activities OFFICE WORKERS combine ef¬ forts to form a useful and effi¬ cient mail receiving system, of which Mr. Joseph Gartner and Mr. Ronald Jordan take advant¬ age.
