top hat nineteen sixty eight VOLUME XV PUBLISHED BY THE TOP HAT STAFF 0. P. MORTON SENIOR HIGH 6915 GRAND AVENUE HAMMOND, INDIANA The regret of leaving an old friend . . . The prospect of new adventures . . . A place to call our own . . . Morton Senior High School . . . in the beginning . . . PILED HIGH by workmen who hurried to finish the building, stacks of cartons could be seen by students throughout the school. BARE WALLS, AN UNVARNISHED FLOOR and tangled wires were all that greeted students who ventured into the unfinished gym. delayed construction hinders opening DESOLATE AND BARREN, the courtyard waits for the work¬ men who will turn its dirt and stone to beauty. Years of planning preceded the Morton Senior High School opening. Although hindered by construction, tne delayed opening provided most students with a first hand glimpse of the new Governor home. Because the building was far from complete at the original opening date, students were introduced to the new school in stages. Each class had a half-day orien¬ tation at the start of the first semester. Certain areas, such as the gym, the auditorium, and the shop rooms, were restricted from student use while workmen com¬ pleted the work needed on these sections. Started as a city-wide project in spring 1962, Morton was the first Hammond high school to be financed by public bonds. With this plan, it will take 17 years to complete payments on the 7.6 million dollar complex. This was also the first time that a holding company was used by the Hammond School city to finance a project. The holding company is comprised of private citizens who have an interest in Morton. The official title of this company is the Hammond Morton Building Cor¬ poration. Dr. H. Taylor is president, with Mrs. Dan Schlesinger as vice president, Mr. H. Gescheidler as sec¬ retary-treasurer and Mr. P. Singleton and Mr. R. Florence as members. I t was organized on February 26, 1965. The formal dedication was held on May 1, 1968, with city, state and school officials attending. MOVING DAY PROBLEMS were evident in many home eco¬ nomics classrooms. Appliances were left disconnected as crews tried to install the pipes and circuits which would put the new stoves and refrigerators into action. SILHOUETTED BY THE AFTERNOON SUN, a workman strives to prepare the Governors ' Mansion for the opening semester. pupils recall old memories; new scenes SCHOOL BULLETIN BOARD supplies students with current in¬ formation pertaining to various Morton activities. AMPLE PARKING SPACE acquired with the completion of the Governor home. FLYING PROUDLY over its surroundings, a new American flag, a present from the VFW adds the final touch to the building. for school traditions Some old traditions must step aside to permit the formation of new ones. However, there are other tradi¬ tions which continue to bind Morton’s students into that particular group of people known as the Governors. New, spacious parking lots, inside classrooms, a new gym and overall expanded facilities helped replace any and all nostalgic longings for the old school. Other school areas, such as the large and small au¬ ditoriums and the cafeteria, are surrounded by activities upon which new traditions are based. Classrooms are not only larger, but have acoustical ceilings, along with plen¬ ty of bulletin and blackboard space. An efficient inter¬ com system has been put into each classroom while some classrooms even have television. New and better equip¬ ment has been added to the shop and home economics areas. Morton’s first language lab was also installed. On October 4, 1967, the VFW Post 232 presented United States flags and the Indiana State flag to the new school. Association members, class officers, and seniors attended the morning ceremony. The flags which fly over the school originally flew over the capitol building in Washington, D.C. The flags are used in classrooms and special areas such as the library and offices. GOOD RELATIONSHIPS between faculty and pupils is im¬ portant for a strong student body. Mr. Gartner gives aid to a puzzled Tom Arnold, who needs help deciding his future. act as background STUDENTS DASH OUT OF SCHOOL after a long day of classes to meet friends for the walk home. english classes emphasize creativeness NEWSPAPERS SUPPLY EXAMPLES of different writing techniques for journalism students Lerryn Strohl and Gail Muta. Journalism classes make notebooks of newspaper clippings, then rate each other ' s work. ABRACADABRA—a tree! Jane Hluska makes use of origami, the art of paper folding, in her English III class. The newspaper trees were used as props for the skit portraying a Japanese banquet. via writing, oration Separate study units in the new library proved a valu¬ able aid to English students doing research for class. Despite a month’s delay in delivery of furniture and shelving, the library soon became a much-used study- research center for Morton’s student body. During the freshman and sophomore years, literature and grammar are taught together to stress the close link between understanding the written word and expressing ideas. These first two years cover a variety of subject material ranging from Greek and Roman mythology to the agreement of subjects and verbs. Juniors and seniors also delved into the study of literature and composition. A comprehensive study of American literary works was undertaken by juniors while seniors analyzed English and world literature. Composi¬ tion classes instructed students in the art of essay writing and enabled them to review the basic fundamentals of correct word and grammar usage. Journalism, speech, and dramatics gave students an opportunity to express their ideas and to communicate with others in their native language. VIOLENT EMOTION proves to be a difficult challenge for Paul Chiki, speech student, who is working to improve facial expression to be used in communication with others. IMITATION and con¬ centration must be used by dramatics students Steve Marlow and Steve Munsey in this mirror exercise. One student acts as a mirror and must imitate his part¬ ner ' s every expression. 9 study of language, customs, land areas CLEARING UP THE CONFU¬ SION, company representa¬ tive George Jones explains the language lab console to Mrs. Bev Petrunich. DAS RAD, a German magazine, provides Mike Krizman with a change of pace. This magazine supplemented the student ' s text. FRENCH STUDENT Pat Boyle adjusts the volume and speed con¬ trol as she prepares to listen to a playback of a French conver¬ sation. Lab facilities enable students to hear speech patterns. 10 acquaints pupils with foreign neighbors Language students studying Spanish, French, or Ger¬ man used the language lab to improve their pronunci¬ ation and understanding of skills. The language lab seats 40 students and equips them with individual tapes and earphones. The classes worked as a group or individually on the translation and pronunciation of certain tapes. Spanish classes used records and movies to help ac¬ quaint them with the Spanish language. Students made speeches in Spanish and had spelling bees, using the Spanish pronunciation of the alphabet. Advanced classes presented skits and sang folk songs, while fourth year students read OMNIBUS OF SPANISH LITERATURE to acquaint them with famous Spanish literary works. French classes, in addition to learning the irregular verbs, vocabulary, and new nasal sounds, spent two days a week in the language lab. The singing of French Christmas carols added variation to the classes. Match, a French magazine, and other pieces of French literature were available in the classroom for student reading. Students studying German were required to make a three minute speech on a topic of their choice. Part of the final exam consisted of an oral speech in which the student selected a card with a topic and had fiva min¬ utes to prepare a talk on it. Every week German students received a magazine written in German which contained features, crossword puzzles, and jokes. SOMBRERO IN HAND, Spanish I student Paul Torres gives a report on Mexico to inform his classmates of the way people live and work in a Spanish speaking country. T.V. supplemented study in world history classes. Pro¬ grams on Africa were viewed. Making use of this aid are FRONT ROW: Dan Bogner, Bob Grenda, Ed Sharpe, BACK ROW: Mike Marshall. social studies courses strive to analyze TO FIND THE POSITIONS of the world ' s major nations, Randy Hawkins consults an Atlas map and a globe. With the map Randy can find mountains and principal rivers and cities. The globe gives him a per¬ spective of the countries ' positions in relation to one another. PRESENTING HIS VIEWS on the Korean situa¬ tion, Randy Snyder debates in History IV class. COMPARING DAILY PRICES, Mike Sutherland and Phil Hilty obtain knowledge of the stock market in economics. past, current world “Neanderthal Man,” King Tut, Caesar, and Hitler were some persons introduced to those taking world history. A study of man’s inventions and his explorations enabled students to follow the course of history. U.S. History, a course full of dates and famous people, instructed the students in the heritage of their country. Making book reports and scale models of forts and bat¬ tles were required assignments in some classes while opinion polls enabled other classes to express their views on events of historical significance. Learning the function of federal, state, and local government was the task of every government class. To give the students a first-hand look at city government in action, teachers planned a visit to City Hall. Economics, a semester course related to government, dealt with the cost of living and how market prices and working-man wages affect an American’s everyday life. Maps and charts were used in geography to show land surface conditions and relative position and boundaries of the world’s countries. Classes learned how the natural resources can affect a country’s strength. New classes appeared on the curriculum this year. Among them was U.S. History III and IV, a two-semester pilot-course launched by the social studies department. This informal class was limited to 12 to 15 A and B his¬ tory students who showed interest in analyzing recent historical events. No tests were given, but each student was graded on his contributions to the discussions. TO KEEP UP with education problems, Kathy Wozniak studies " The American Observer, " a weekly paper on current events. Students in government classes used the paper to keep in¬ formed about national and international happenings. PAUSING A MOMENT, Mr. Georgas contemplates Glen Cantwell ' s history questions as Hazel Straub looks on. 13 experiments highlight study of science INSPECTING THE PROGRESS of biology class plants, Diane Sumis checks for blight and rust on the leaves. New science wing facilities lacked lab tables, lock¬ ers, and gas jets the first semester. However, after January, students spent more class time in lab. Dissection of frogs offered biologists an introductory look into the function of the animal. Students also raised their own plants and observed their daily pro¬ gress to gain a better knowledge of plant life. Botanists delved into a more complex study of the plant kingdom. Experiments, slides, and films illustrated the plants’ usefulness to man and animals. Scalpel and forceps in hand, zoology students dis¬ sected sharks, pigs, turtles, and rats to compare the man-animal relationship that exists in nature. Mixing, heating, and testing chemicals gave chem¬ istry students an opportunity to observe the physical and chemical properties of elements and compounds. Projects and term papers enabled students to do individ¬ ual study with a minimum of instructor’s guidance. Physics, a more complex study of matter, introduced students to the theories about heat, light, motion, and work. Experiments illustrated these principles while term papers and panel discussions allowed students to do research on a topic of their choice. Studying body reaction, behavior patterns, and brain sections highlighted the study of psychology, a “mind science.” Demonstrations of ESP and hypnotism pro¬ vided additional information for research. Actual ex¬ periments were performed on a few selected students. MEASUREMENT OF SAND and salt is closely watched by John Kwandras and Ed Ferguson in preparing their chemistry experiment. 14 EXPERIMENTATION WITH INTERACTING FORCES that cause a vital theory of physics. The wheel and axle experiment in¬ equilibrium demonstrates to Betsy Bicanic and Jonell Long volves a round graduated disk to which weights are attached. DEEP IN A TRANCE, Rita Sansone clasps her hands tightly while Mr. Gerald Spitzer, psychology teacher, positions her for a class demonstration. DISSECTION OF A FETAL PIG helps zoology student Sandi Boskovitch understand the position and function of animal organs. An incision is made under the skin and students use forceps to examine the organs. math, business classes open new fields FIGURING CREDITS and debts, Karen Farcus utilizes an adding machine. Business classes obtained new equipment and quarters. MISTAKES ARE COSTLY in lost time and effort in typing classes. Pat Weiland neatly corrects errors being care¬ ful not to rip or erase a hole in her paper. Work that has a hole or rip in it must be done over. CAREFUL CONCENTRATION is necessary in transcribing a short¬ hand exercise. Druanne Paswinski is learning the necessary fun¬ damentals that will help her in the business world. 16 for pupils to probe Solving problems in geometry, basic and advanced algebra, and trigonometry perplexed students in the ac¬ ademic course. Geometry students learned the use of the straight edge and compass which aided them when trying to construct the assigned triangles, arcs, and angles. Algebra students worked to solve equations and factors. Now a veteran course of four years, modern algebra in¬ troduced the initial study of number theories, set pro¬ perties, and graphing of equations. Juniors and seniors attempted more advanced courses in algebra and trig. Basic math courses were under the department of general business for the second year. Counting frames and flash cards were a new addition to the subject. Preparing for future secretarial jobs, students took typing, shorthand, and clerical practice. Beginning typ¬ ists learned to type rhythmically to music. Following the rhythm helps in developing stroking patterns. Short¬ hand students had the task of learning to write the English language with symbols. Working with the comp¬ tometer and the adding machine taught students about the maintainance and use of machines in business. RELATING INTERESTING INFORMATION about math is the main purpose of the math bulletin board. The final touch is added by Math I student Sharon Rosenberry. This board showed different types of math careers students can pursue. PUZZLED ALGEBRA STUDENTS Diane Benko and Terry Stanford ponder over an unusual algebraic equation. Extra equations present a challenge for algebra students who have mastered ordinary equations. WORKING WITH AN ISOSCELES TRIANGLE, Bobbi Rathbun shows her class¬ mates how to find the measurement of an angle by measuring the vertex. Geometry classes study different types of triangles and their properties. ADJUSTING THE HEMLINE of a skirt helps Eleanor Kurek practice a basic skill in clothing class. BREAKING THE BARRIER in an all boy class, Pat Novak uses mechanical drawing equipment to sketch a drawing of a three dimensional figure. help to train tomorrow ' s homemakers SANDING DOWN A WOOD BLOCK for his shop project, Ed¬ die Sharpe uses one of the new industrial arts machines. Wood shop acquainted students with various household tasks. “Ouch! Confounded needle!” was one of the sounds heard coming from the boys’ food classes. Boys learned to sew on buttons and iron with the motto “good groom¬ ing is an essential part in one’s daily care.” Members of the boys’ food classes learned the basics of grooming and clothing care, in addition to regular cooking. Because of unfinished facilities, baking and cooking were post¬ poned until the completion of the kitchen units. In preparation for cooking, the girls’ food classes had the job of counting and sorting new equipment as they entered their new kitchen. Girls started the semes¬ ter with book research on the fundamentals of food to prepare them for lab work. This year’s new facilities for food classes consisted of two built-in ovens, broil¬ ers, deep fat-fryers and electrical skillets, knives, waf¬ fle irons and can-openers. In modernized kitchens, girls were better able to prepare their assignments. Girls worked on their skirts, blouses, jumpers, and other items as they learned to be good seamstresses. Home management this year was changed to Family Living I and II. Home nursing was included in the Fam¬ ily Living classes. The classwork was hampered to a de¬ gree because of unfinished electrical outlets for machines. Classes of mechanical drawing covered construction of scale drawings, and special tools were utilized to help the student in this field. Wood shop students en¬ joyed the elaborate power saws and other equipment. VIEWING A MODEL HOME, Linda Hilty uses her imagination to plan a model home of her own. Students taking Family Living are required to design a home they would like to own. ADJUSTING THE TEMPERATURE, Andrea Spears prepares to bake biscuits in a new, more convenient built-in oven. new equipment, surroundings enhance LEARNING TO SPOT a partner is a skill that every gym student must acquire. Pam Holland assists Diane Griffith in a handstand stunt. 20 arts, fitness courses Construction difficulties prevented the use of the gym the first semester. Hampered by this problem, physical education teachers conducted classes in regular assigned rooms. Second semester found classes in the gym. New mats, ropes, and parallel bars enabled students to put their classroom knowledge into practice. Physical fitness played a part in Health and Safety classes. Learning the human bone structure and how it affects body movement was the task of each student. Concert Choir purchased metallic blue robes and egg¬ shell white stoles and wore them in all concerts and assemblies. Girls’ Choir members chose gold blazers for their concert appearances. Vocal groups used a new sys¬ tem of microphones and taping equipment for concerts. Band members utilized their new facilities of a tiered band platform and practice area. These rooms became the birthplace of the band’s new repertoire. New facilities enabled art students to experiment with new art ideas and concepts. Wooden mallets, chisels, soldering irons, and wire cutters, employed by student hands, created sculptures and abstract paintings. Out¬ standing projects were exhibited in the art showcase. MUSICAL ABILITY is demonstrated by Valerie Hodis and Polly McPheron as Mr. Larry Patterson tests them on a song. RECEIVING ASSISTANCE from Mr. Daniels, Health and Safe¬ ty students Anna Mallory and Mike Mazur examine the hu¬ man skeleton. Bone structure is studied with body function. OUT OF CLASS PRACTICE enables Pam Lloyd to perfect her musical ability on the flute with Mr. Melton ' s help.

Pupils studied their assignments in the quiet atmosphere of the room. 24 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS, Tom Vanes, Randy Snyder, and Carol Sharpe re¬ ceive flags from VFW members. The officers of each class accepted the flags to be used in their classrooms. traditions, loyalty to new environment A new school year, a new school, and a completely new environment welcomed Morton High School stu¬ dents back to classes. The building was new and modem, but the old traditions of MHS were still observed. Even though the building wasn’t entirely completed for the opening of school, students overcame handicaps of unfinished classrooms, hammers pounding, and con¬ struction workers sometimes more numerous than teach¬ ers. The excitement of moving into a new home and spa¬ cious surroundings were the only concern of the students. Both students and faculty especially enjoyed the new facilities available. Students spent free hours in the cafe¬ teria commons or studying in the quiet, carpeted library. The faculty had their own cafeteria and lounge. One by one, during the course of the year, the new facilities were finished. First the football stadium, then the gym, the pool and finally the auditorium were able to be used. With the moving into a larger home, the school main¬ tained a closed-campus policy. Students were not allowed to leave the school during lunch hours, but had the choice of where to go to work or talk. There were no assigned study halls, nor was attendance taken. Students were free to go wherever they wanted to in the building. STUDENT GUIDE Mary Jo Stewart directs parents at the open house, which enabled the public to visit the new school.

REPRESENTING MORTON as the 1968 winner of the Bausch and Lomb Science Award is Tom Vanes. scholarship, leadership, service awards Many Morton students, active in both school and com¬ munity functions, brought honor to MHS. Hoosier Girls’ and Boys’ State Representatives, chosen on the basis of interest in government, spent one week at Indiana University last summer. Participating directly in mock elections, students vied for positions of local, county and state administrations. Social Studies teachers selected the DAR Good Citi¬ zenship Award Winner from girls possessing the quali¬ ties of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. This year, for the first time, two girls, Cynthia Arvay and Lu Ann Schwandt tied for the award after the first vote. The vote of the teachers had to be taken twice before a winner could be announced. Recognition of outstanding scholastic standing in sci¬ ence subjects by a senior is the purpose of awarding the Bausch and Lomb Award. The winner of the honorary science award is eligible to compete for a Bausch and Lomb Science Scholarship at the University of Rochester. Tours of the Carmelite Home for Boys, Calumet Good¬ will Industries, YMCA, and Brook’s Home by the student committee launched the Community Chest Drive at Mor¬ ton. The committee encouraged the classes to compete with each other while collecting funds. EXPRESSING JOY after being announced as Morton ' s DAR award winner is senior Lu Ann Schwandt. 29 host upperclassmen capital, new york OUR CAPITOL BUILDING, a symbol of freedom and leader¬ ship, reminds Morton students of the great U.S. heritage. Six days of traveling, sight-seeing, tired feet, and in¬ somnia comprised the upperclassmen’s annual tour to our nation’s capitol and New York City. On October 24, 70 juniors and seniors boarded the Erie-Lackawana train enroute to Washington, D.C. There they toured such famous places as the Capitol Building, the White House and the Library of Congress. Witness¬ ing the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Un¬ known Soldier and the activity at the Pentagon reminded students how much our country protects us in defense. New York City’s sights and sounds were also enjoyed. Planned tours to the Empire State Building, Lincoln Cen¬ ter, United Nations Building, and the Statue of Liberty showed the young tourists the famous highlights of New York City. Students visited Badio City Music Hall where they saw the famous dancers, “The Rockettes”, and a first-run movie, “Wait Until Dark.” Stops at small, in¬ timate coffee houses and shops and conversations with real protesting Hippies gave students a first-hand look into the core of “village life.” MOTHER ' S ADVICE on eating the right foods is forgotten as Stanley McCaw and Richard Mamrila enjoy the variety of meals served in their hotel dining-room. PLANNED TOURS through George Washington ' s home in Mt. Vernon showed students our first presi¬ dent ' s way of living.

The parade and football game were both post¬ poned until the next day on account of rain. Since floats were prohibited this year, students de¬ corated cars for the parade. Students assembled at Hard¬ ing parking lot to line up the cars. The parade, consist¬ ing of the Homecoming Court, cheerleaders, ba nd mem¬ bers, twirlers, students and teachers, proceeded to Ken¬ nedy Avenue and then south to the new stadium. During the half-time of the football game against East Chicago Roosevelt, senior Tom Vanes presented the Homecoming Court, escorted by five senior boys, to the crowd. Then, after a few moments of silence, he an¬ nounced Kathy Bocken as the 1967 Homecoming Queen. After the game the queen and her court reigned over the Homecoming dance held in the cafeteria. DANCING IN THE CAFETERIA to the music of Oscar the Majesties brought the Homecoming festivities to an end. DECORATED CARS line up at Harding parking lot wait¬ ing for parade to begin enroute to Morton ' s stadium. highlights homecoming game, festivities CROWNED QUEEN at the half¬ time ceremony of the 1967 Homecoming was Kathy Bocken.

The queen and her court la¬ ter reigned at the Homecoming Dance. stylish fashions dominate school scene This was the year of psychedelic happenings, Bonnie and Clyde, Twiggy, and mini-skirts. The word “psyche¬ delic” applied to anything weird or off-beat and became an active part of every teen’s vocabulary. Although the popular school attire consisted of mostly collegiate skirts, pants and sweaters, students also wore “mod” clothes. Mini-skirts and outfits worn by the popular British model Twiggy became the rage. Bonnie and Clyde, the famous gangster-couple of the 20’s immortalized by a movie, influenced dress and styles everywhere. The hair styles of the 20’s and 30’s were definitely the “in” look this year. Curly, romantic hair-dos for formal attire were especially popular, while sleek, blunt cuts were worn during school. Students were also concerned with the more serious affairs of the Pueblo Crisis, Viet Nam War and election year. Facts were weighed and decisions had to be made by the students themselves concerning these issues. LARGE FURRY HATS, mittens, and a double-breasted coat help Marie Simms to fight off the winter ' s cold in style. SPORTY OUTFITS, appropriate attire for football games, are modeled by Kathy Goldschmidt and Kathy Mosca. COORDINATED V-NECK SWEATERS, pants, and shirts comprise school dress for Rob Keilman and Mark Powers. ass ' n leaders plan annual semi-formal Decorated in silver and blue, the cafeteria was trans¬ formed into a ballroom for the 1967 Inaugural Ball. Dancing to the music of the Hal Morris Band, couples attended the first semi-formal held in the new school honoring the Student Association Officers elected last spring. The officers, president’s cabinet, and their escorts were seated at the head table. Seniors, juniors, sopho¬ mores, and freshmen were all invited to attend the affair inaugurating their Student Association President, Ron Eatinger, on November 24, 1967. Because of unfinished facilities, the office of the presidency was undertaken without the usual inaugural assembly held in the fall. At the end of the year, the president presented the annual State of the Union Ad¬ dress to the student body and reported the progress of the Association during the past year. MINGLING WITH THE STUDENTS, the Hal Morris Band sere¬ naded the couples by playing their favorite requests. RECEIVING the couples at the Inaugural Ball are the officers and their escorts—Gary Gasper and Candy Lessie (sec.); Ron Meseberg (v. pres.) and Andrea Spears; Ron Eatinger (pres.) and Pat Moore. 35 9 finian ' s rainbow, carmen debut as first KEEPING TIME to the number, " When the Idle Poor Become the Idle Rich, " are dancers and chorus members. Bob Wells, Mitzi Zmigrocki, Bob Cantwell and Julie Josway. FINIAN (Larry Buechley) and his daughter Sharon (Sandy Snyder) stop and display astonishment as they enter the United States for the first time after leaving Ireland. LOVE TRIANGLE prevails as Don Jose (Jim Deiotte) falls in love with Carmen (Laura Lundquist), who is infatuated with Escamillo (Chuck Hopf). 36 productions on newly completed stage Conversation silenced, lights dimmed and the curtain slowly rose for the first time in Morton’s new auditorium. The huge theatre, complete with balcony and profession¬ al size stage, narrowly reached completion for the pro¬ duction of the spring musical debuting April 26, 1968. Weeks of hard work on the part of both the Th eatre and Choral Departments resulted in two main produc¬ tions, FINIAN’S RAINBOW and a combination of one scene from the opera, CARMEN, and two 1-Act Plays, “Curse You Jack Dalton,” and “The Lottery.” FINIAN’S RAINBOW, a musical comedy, described the arrival of Finnian and his daughter, Sharon, from Ireland to the United States to find fame and fortune. Colorful costumes, lifelike scenery and peppy songs and dances to tunes (among them, “If This Isn’t Love,” “Look To the Rainbow,” and “That Old Devil Moon,”) resulted in a musical bubbling with life and gaity. One act of the opera CARMEN, produced entirely by the Choral Department, and the two 1-Act Plays, pro¬ duced by the Theatre Guild, were presented together. Romance and adventure highlighted the opera as the shifty, Spanish beauty, Carmen, comes between Don Jose, a soldier in the Spanish Army and Micela, his sweetheart. SATISFIED WITH HIS TREASURE is Og (Larry Rapchak) as he recovers his stolen pot of gold. SHARECROPPERS Rich Goll- ner and Donna Bergner listen attentively as Barbara Geni- sauski bursts forth in song. 37 CLASS KINGS AND QUEENS are Wayne Czarnecki, Barbara Vanes, (freshmen); Cecil Depew, Jan Rogowski, (sopho¬ mores); Jim Dodson, Car¬ ole Cornelison, (juniors); and Jim Gasaway, Debby Berard, (seniors). l government club honors class royalty Cupid’s Concerto 1968, sponsored by the Government Club, raised $405 for the club’s two Vietnamese foster children, Nguyen Thi Be and Nguyen Thi Trung. The Jaguars provided entertainment for the dance held in the cafeteria. Government Club members worked to make the dance a success since Cupid’s Concerto 1968 was the only money-making project for the orphans. In preceding years an assembly was also held to collect contributions from the student body; but because of the unfinished auditorium, the assembly was cancelled. Highlighting the evening was the announcement of class kings and queens by the club’s president Betsy Bi- canic. Each homeroom nominated one boy and one girl and then each class voted for their respective kings and queens to represent them at the dance. GOVERNMENT CLUB SPONSOR Mr. J. Gartner " vibrates " to the psychedelic sounds at the Government Club dance. 38 graduation climaxes high-school career Seniors spent the last month of their high-school years attending and participating in special senior activities. Tuesday, April 30 was the date of the senior banquet held at Teibel’s Restaurant. There the class prophecy and wills were read. The Class of ’68 enjoyed their last full week of high-school in comfort. They celebrated Senior Week by bermuda, hobo-hippie, Roaring 20’s, kindergarten and dress-up days. Each day of the week was different and seniors dressed accordingly. Baccalaureate services were held Sunday afternoon, June 2, in Morton’s auditorium. Rev. John A. Snyder, minister of the First Christian Church of Hessville and father of senior class president, Randy Snyder, was the guest speaker. The first graduating class of the new school was also the first to hold graduation exercises during an outdoor ceremony. Seniors received diplomas in the football stadium after listening to guest speaker R. B. Miller, former Superintendent of the Hammond Public School System, and addresses by the senior class salutatorian and valedictorian. SPENDING ONLY A YEAR at the new MHS, senior Pat Boyle looks back at the building that became a new home.

More than 1,000 high school yearbooks all over the nation are judged for the All-American honor. En¬ tries in the two contests are judged in content through photography, copy, headlines, layout, and creativity. Despite money shortages and a cut by the school board in school allotment, the MORTONITE was still publish¬ ed bi-weekly. The staff worked hard to meet their dead¬ lines. This year the MORTONITE received two awards from the rating service. The National Scholastic Press Association awarded the paper an All-American rating. Quill and Scroll, a national journalism society, conferred an International First Place award. For the first time since the MORTONITE has been published, the style of headlines has changed to down style. Another change on the MORTONITE was the new nameplate, which consists of the title and a top hat and cane. Senior Jim Rafalski designed it during art class. MORTONITE PAGE EDITORS are-SITTING: J.

Each salesman tried to sell as many books as possible so more color could be added. Writing copy, headlines, and captions for various sec¬ tions, edge editors worked alongside the section editors to learn the tricks of the trade and to help get the spreads ready for press. Each edge editor kept a stringer, which was a list of all work he completed, to help determine grades. Those that excelled in TOP HAT work applied for positions as section editors at the end of the year for next year’s staff. Juniors applied for editor. MORTONITE reporters have primarily the same type of job as the edge editors. Each reporter was assigned a beat, a certain club or school area, to get information about past and upcoming school events. The reporter’s task was to inform the student body about news occur¬ ring in and out of MHS, pertaining to school life. Quill and Scroll, an international organization, is com¬ posed of students on the TOP HAT and MORTONITE staff. To qualify, members must have done superior work as journalists. They must be in the upper third of their class in general scholastic standing and either a junior or senior. Governor license plates were sold as a fund project. Quill and Scroll’s function is to promote better journalistic ideas. Members visited area grade schools to encourage incoming freshmen to enroll in journalism classes.

Under the guidance of the sponsors and officers, members worked to provide pub¬ licity for games and urged support from all students. Bus trips to “away” games aided in arousing spirit for the teams. This year, Booster Club added another activity. Each of the four classes competed in a basketball game held before the Senior-Faculty Game. The sophomores defeated the freshmen, and the senior girls triumphed over the juniors. The sophomores went on to win their game with the seniors. An annual Mr. Football and Mr. Basketball dance marked the end of each season. At a banquet at Teibel’s in April new office positions were announced, and the year was completed. Bed and gray capes, letter formations, and cheer rou¬ tines all added up to make Cape Section, a newly formed organization. Composed of 90 members, it provided spir¬ it and entertainment at basketball games. Members met as a club, after school, and practiced various cheers with the cheerleaders. Under the direction of Cynthia Arvay, routines were worked out to pep songs such as “Sweet Georgia Brown” and the “Girl Watchers’ Theme.” M-Club, consisting of all boys who have earned a varsity letter, promoted school spirit at all activities.

Members worked after school to prepare decorations on slides and hand painted movies which were used to change the atmosphere or mood every half hour. Art sessions were held after school hours where members experimented with pottery and painting for their own experience and enjoyment. As primarily a service club, the Hi-Y concentrated on helping the needy in the area. Members prepared bas¬ kets or food for the needy at Christmas and Thanks¬ giving.

Members made preparations for closed circuit television throughout the school and operated it on a small scale basis. The club installed a stereo sound system in the small auditorium for use of small class groups and clubs. To obtain more information about the operation of audio visual ma¬ terials, selected A.V. club members attended Indiana University’s summer workshop where they increased their knowledge of both old and new types of stereo high-fidelity and audio-visual equipment. Speakers and trips enabled Foreign Language Club Members to gain additional information about foreign peoples and cultures.

They also assisted the Theater Guild in their candy sale and took an active part in all Guild productions. Pledge members were required to repeat the Thespian oath six times a day to a senior Thespian as a part of their initi¬ ation. Later an induction ceremony was held and the pledges became official Thespians. Creating stage settings and designs enabled Stage Crew members to display their creative ability.

Members received award letters and pins at their award dinner, held at the close of the year. Dance Band differed from Concert Band because of the music they played. While the Concert Band concen¬ trated on classical music the Dance Band played jazz compositions and popular tunes. Along with the new facilities enjoyed by the Concert Choir, members also chose a metallic blue as the color of their new robes. The Concert Choir, under the direc¬ tion of Mr. L. Patterson, sang at a concert-assembly program for Hanover Central High School. Working hand in hand with theater groups, mertibers participated in the spring musical FINIAN’S RAINBOW.

Members raised money to help pay for new uniforms and overlays. twirlers, band add zest to mhs games Members of the Morton Band sponsored a chili supper and sold Morton pennants at football games to raise money for new uniforms. With the money raised, mem¬ bers bought new pants, jackets, and overlays. The Band performed at-home football games and worked out rou¬ tines with the cape section for home basketball games. Displaying community pride and spirit, the Band per¬ formed in both Hammond and Hessville parades. Five members placed in the all-state band and the entire band received a rating of “excellent” in com¬ petition at Riverview Amusement Park in Chicago. Listed as one of the top corps in the Northern Indiana twirling-flag swinging contest, the Morton twirling corps provided half-time entertainment at home basketball and football games. Aside from baton twirling, the corps also performed pom-pom and flag routines. Studying and listening to all types of music and mak¬ ing provisions for a stereo high-fidelity sound system for the small auditorium occupied the time of the Music in Perspective Club. Members learned the fundamentals of different types of music and some factors behind the production of music. Listening to operas, jazz, classical, and popular music aided members in learning how to add to their personal record collections.

To top off the dedication cere¬ monies of the new field, Morton dealt a crushing de¬ feat to the number one team in the state, E.C. Wash¬ ington, 18-13. Later, in a cross-town game, the underdog Governors repelled the offense of Gavit to win 20-7. The Big Red was also able to defeat Gary Andrean and Whiting by scores of 21-6 and 27-13 respectively. But these victories were to be in vain as the Gov¬ ernors lost their five other regular season games. The first loss came during Morton’s second game of the year as Bishop Noll defeated the Governors 19-7. A revenge¬ seeking Clark team then dealt Morton’s team its second defeat of the year, 39-21. The next loss came in a close game at the hands of the Tech Tigers, 26-20. Dampening Morton’s homecoming was both rain and the conference leaders, E.C. Roosevelt, who won by a score of 23-6. In the last game of the season, Morton’s arch-rival, Ham¬ mond High, won by a score of 23-13. In pre-season play at the Tech-O-Rama, Morton de¬ feated Gavit 7-0 in the first quarter and Tech 21-0 in the third for 28 points and second place honors. High scorer for the year was senior Tom Gollner with a total of 7 touchdowns or 42 points, while seniors C. and L. Robertson were elected co-captains.

Morton’s B-Team compiled a 3-1-1 record while hop¬ ing to gain the experience necessary for success in their next two future seasons at Morton High. During the season, the B-Team defeated the Bishop Noll Warriors, Clark Pioneers, and Gavit Gladiators and tied the Tech Tigers with six points accredited to each team. Only E.C. Washington Senators could manage to break through the Morton Governors’ defensive team. Winning the close games was the factor that made the season successful as the B-Team defeated Bishop Noll 9-7 and Clark 14-13. However, they failed to score the extra point against Tech, ending the game in a dead-lock. FROSH FOOTBALL MEMBERS ARE-BOTTOM ROW: Asst. Coach R. Hunt, M. Buechley, T. Stryzinski, T. Sonaty, R.

Eleven boys completed the first season in the new fall sport with eight members receiving letters. The eight team members who received letters led the tennis team to their four victories over Gary Emerson, Gary Tolleston, E.C. Washington and Gary Roosevelt. How¬ ever, the courtmen held the lower end against Hammond Tech, Hobart, Horace Mann, Gavit, E.C. Roosevelt, Hammond High, Clark, Lew Wallace and Valparaiso. Team members chose Larry Buechley as most valuable player and Clarence Childress as captain of the team. This year all of Morton’s home-games were played at either Lost or Hessville parks and their practice sessions were also divided between the two parks. Next year, however, the tennis team will play and practice on their home court. This newly constructed court is located just south of the physical education complex. The Morton courtmen started the season strong, win¬ ning their first two matches, but later cooled off and lost their next three meets. During their next eight matches the tennis team finished with only two more victories to bring home to the Governors’ mansion.

The Governors made a comeback as they broke through the defense of Lew Wallace to win by a score of 60-52. The Governors then fell back when they dropped their next two games to Gary Wirt, 66-63, and Gary Roosevelt, 68-56. Once again the Governors came back to defeat Calumet, 70-66. This gave them a 2-5 record going into the Holiday Tourney. Advancing to the Holiday Tourney at Chesterton, the Big Red fell to Chesterton, 62-53, and Marion, 86-64. After the tourney the roundballers began to pick up steam as they dealt a defeat to Gavit, 76-66. This trend did not continue, however, as the roundballers lost to Griffith, 85-56. Then in the first game in the new gym, Morton lost to highly rated E.C. Roosevelt, 78-49. The team also lost their next game to Hammond High by a score of 76-74. The next contest showed some hope for the tournament when the squad beat the Trojans 92-68. The Governors then defeated the teams from Whiting and Clark with scores of 72-54 and 75-74 respectively. The next three games were losses by E.C. Washington, Tech, and Gary Froebel. The last game of the season was a victory over a powerful team from Gary Edison. GOVERNOR ROUNDBALLERS W. Bocken, J.

Morton’s cold shooting and the high spirited play of the Highland Trojans proved too great a power for the Governors as they were eliminated from the sectionals. Adding only four points to their half-time total of 25, the Governors finished the third quarter with a ten point deficit which proved to be too much to make up in the final quarter. The final score was 52-46. Jim Baasse scored sixteen points, Larry Robertson followed with eleven and Wayne Bocken with six.

Gymnastics, which is under the direction of Coach Bob Breitweiser, was forced to practice in the Orchard Drive School gym until the completion of Morton’s gym. Fields in which the gymnastic team members compete are floor exercises, tumbling, trampoline, parallel bars, the horizontal bar and on the rings. No team members received letters this year because the team, being the first at Morton, was inexperienced. Next year, however, the squad members will have to maintain an average of a third place finish in all of their combined meets to gain a letter.

In their initial season, Morton’s swimmers compiled a 1-7-0 record. After losing their first seven meets the team came back in their eighth meet to defeat Gary Roosevelt. Next year the team will hold its practices and meets in Morton’s newly constructed natatorium.

WITH SPIRITED PRECISION, Cynthia Kaufman makes an effort to encourage the Governor team. enthusiasm in cranberry, pink uniforms “Tick tock, tick tock, count the seconds on the clock!” With these words the Morton cheer block is not asking for the time but attempting to spur the mighty Gover¬ nors on to victory. Led by the varsity, b-team, and fresh¬ man cheerleaders, fans backed the Morton Governors at football and basketball games and school pep rallies. This year the cheerleaders not only taught new cheers and chants but also added new mounts to their cheers. Pom-pon rountines were also worked out to the tunes of “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Girl Watchers Theme,” to help instill enthusiasm within the team as well as en¬ livening the spectators seated on the sidelines. Varsity cheerleaders acquired new uniforms this past season. The style and design of the uniforms allowed for more freedom of movement which enabled them to at¬ tempt new mounts and endings for cheers. FRESHMAN CHEERLEADERS ARE-BOTTOM ROW: Barb Vanes, Marie Simms. SECOND ROW: Kathy White, Sue Hatfield. THIRD ROW: Denise Ward, Pat Verbick. TOP ROW: Laura Skorupa. The freshmen cheered at all freshmen games. B-TEAM CHEERLEADERS ARE-Susan Taggart, Donna Hilty, Marsha Hunt, Elaine Gaida, Carol Bertagnolli, Sandi Carey, and Jan Rogowski. They cheered at all B-team games and helped show school spirit during games and at all pep rallies. album A moment of quiet contemplation . . . The silence of empty hallways . . . A smile from someone close . . . The sharing and caring of friends . . . Faculty-fun during the Senior-Faculty game 101 banquet, dance, exec board meetings, During the first hectic days at the new Morton Senior High School, seniors had a few problems trying to ac¬ quaint themselves with the building. In recent years freshmen have relied on seniors for directions, but this year the seniors were just as inexperienced as freshmen. Under the direction of the Senior Executive Board, the class of ’68 chose sand and dark brown for their cords. Wednesday was the day selected to wear these outfits. In order to support future activities, seniors raised money in several different ways. The class spon¬ sored a carwash and a “Mr. Ugly” Dance. The Senior Banquet was held on April 30 at Teibel’s Restaurant. Though no floats were allowed in this years’ home¬ coming parade, the seniors worked to decorate cars. They formed a train with cars, spelling out “Seniors.” Baccalaureate was held on June 2, and Commence¬ ment was held on June 6 with an outdoor ceremony. This was the first outdoor graduation in Morton’s history. PONDERING OVER VARIOUS IDEAS to boost senior spirit is senior class president Randy Snyder. SANDY JOYCE ALLEN Booster Club 3,4; Exec.

CALLING TO VERIFY PLANS made by the executive board members is the junior vice president Bobbi Stojan. Entering into the new school provoked excitement among many members of the class of ’69. Their first year to experience being upperclassmen found them just as confused as the incoming freshmen. One of the first duties to be undertaken as juniors was the electing of the junior executive board. Juniors chose two representatives from each homeroom. Mrs. Beth Stier and Mr. Robert Owczarzak served as sponsors for the class of ’69. Along with making minor decisions and preparations, the executive board planned the Jun¬ ior-Senior Prom, “Rendezvous in Heaven.” To carry out the theme, the cafeteria was decorated in two predomi¬ nant colors, pink and gold. Couples danced under dim¬ med lights to the music of Bob Kirk and the Griff Wil¬ liams Orchestra on Saturday evening, May 25, 1968. Held in the “Log” restaurant in Chicago Heights, the after-prom party provided a relaxed atmosphere in con¬ trast to the formality of the Prom. Parents decided to use Mexican hats and fans to transform the restaurant into the nightclub, “Latin Quarter.” The juniors and seniors danced to the beat provided by the Renaissance. Some minor decisions facing the executive board were the planning of junior dress-up day and deciding senior colors. The board designated April 11 as dress-up day and chose rust and apricot as senior colors. As upperclassmen, juniors had the opportunity to go on the annual Washington-New York trip. Students visited historical buildings and met many new friends from the other four participating Hammond high schools. " SLOW DOWN!

Looking into the future, sophomores anticipated en¬ tering the world of upperclassmen. Members were no longer new comers to high school life but had a year’s experience in academic as well as social activities. In their second year of high school, sophomores stud¬ ied the classics in literature, and, for many, science for the first time was offered to them. Many participated in other activities such as plays, and forensics. Graduates of 1970 became active in school life through social events. They were allowed to cast their vote for the homecoming queen, and each homeroom entered a decorated car in the parade. Many were busy throughout the whole year designing signs for many causes. For the annual Government Club dance, Cupid’s Concerto, the sophomore class selected Jan Rogowski and Cecil Depew as the queen and king. The officers represented the class at spirit promoting discussions sponsored by the Student Association. To boost spirit every homeroom voted bur¬ gundy as the class color. Some form of burgundy was worn by class members each Monday. All clubs were open to sophomores. Showing their athletic ability, soph girls, wearing “70” jerseys, reigned as the number one basketball team in the Booster Club. By defeating the freshmen 14-0 and overpowering the seniors 9-4, they became champions. This year a new square style class ring was chosen. The sophomores have the distinction of being the first class to adopt this style completely. CAST SIGNING by secretary Diane Green seems to be rather comical to president Wes Lukoshus. Vice- president Barrett Luketic looks on humorously as he awaits his turn. 132 student government, spirit movements Kirk Agnini Carletta Ahlfield Bill Allen Lynette Allen Paula Anderson Gloria Arvay Debbie Austin Jack Babinec Chris Baker Andrea Bandura Bev Barabas Nancy Barbara Bonnie Bardoczi Judie Barkowski Barbara Bates Lewis Belcher Carol Bell Delba Bell Ron Bero Carol Bertagnolli Pam Bewley Chris Bindas Rosemary Biscan Laurie Blair Becky Blythe Andrea Bobich Pam Bocken Wayne Bocken Eric Boesch Lora Bokori Rick Bosch Chris Brack Keivin Branch Amy Brandenburg Nancy Brandenburg Sue Brazenas Kerry Brennan Sue Bright Jim Brouilette Diana Brown Lynn Buckmaster Steve Budzik Debbie Burns Dan Butoryak Gail Buxton Calvin Byers Larry Byrnes Joan Camp Bob Cantwell Sandi Carey Karen Carter Ronald Casey Daniel Cerajewski Rosanna Charette Diane Cheek Carole Chlebowski Cheryl Christmann Ken Churilla Celeste Ciupak Leslie Clarke Laurel Clinton Kathy Clipka Chuck Cochrane 133 sophs enter into " now " look in fashions; Paul Cody Becky Collins Rich Colvin Pat Cummins Harold Curry Marty Darnell Joyce Davis Linda Davis Charlie Dayhoff Karen Debold Becky Deering Bruce Delau Donna Demeter Patty Demeter Paula Fisher Glenda Fix Jean Flickenger Cindy Foster Barbara Frankovich Ruth Frink Ray Fulkerson model latest leg-wear, foot-wear trend WINDOW-PANE STOCKINGS moccasins, saddle shoes, and girls show variation in tastes as they model the latest foot chain—loafers are " in " at Morton.

Barb Bond (pres.), Randy Canady (v. pres.). Officers were chosen on their ability to guide the class through their first school year. Efforts began this year to involve freshmen in all phases of school activities. Class officers were elected in October to organize their class. These officers accepted American flags at the ceremony presentation by VFW and represented the freshmen at two spirit meetings. Homecoming festivities provided freshmen with an opportunity for participation in school affairs. A fresh¬ man boy and girl presented the crown and a bouquet of roses to the newly elected homecoming queen. First year Governors selected king ana queen can¬ didates for the Cupid’s Concerto dance. A class Mr. Ugly was also chosen from homeroom candidates. Later in the second semester, the class of 71 chose blue as their class color. An attempt was made to have all freshmen wear blue on Tuesday, With the help of the Student Association, class sponsors were selected to work closely with the officers. Play presentations helped freshmen to learn about the various aspects of productions. Major and minor parts in Finian’s Rainbow were played by these underclassmen. Freshmen also tried out for chorus and choir positions. Freshmen demonstrated class and school spirit as they attended athletic events, dances and plays. Clubs brought these students together and enabled them to work at bake-sales and dances. Frosh girls displayed their athletic abilities at the Booster Club basketball game. DETERMINING THE BEST ROUTE, freshman Robert Rutkowski concentrates on school ' s floor plan during frosh orientation. 139 to generate enthusiasm, promote spirit Janice DeBold William Deem Dennis DeRosa Rege Detterline Betty Dilbeck Sue Dixon Paul Doughman Dan Douglas Les Downing Rita Dudenski Nancy Dykstra Jim Echterling Pat Essary Barbara Fairchild Pat Farcus Doris Farmer Marsha Floyd Steven Forsythe Debra Fox Mary Fraiser Bob Frak Russel Friend Geri Fromm Jim Fulk Sharon Gambino Debbie Gasaway Jacque Glover Tom Goldschmidt Rich Gollner Beverly Gordon Sandra Grauvogl Allen Greenwood Bob Grenda Diana Griffith Mike Gunter Kathy Gurchek Darlene Gyurko Gary Hallum Lucy Hamerla Debra Hardison Gail Harvey Dawn Hasselgren Dean Hasselgren Sue Hatfield Ikandice Hayduk Dan Heist Jeffrey Hess Bruce Hickman Dennis Hilty Deborah Hmurovich Pat Hohenegger Janet Hojnacki Don Holland Pam Holland 141 frosh depend on service of counselors, Vickie Hudacin Gerald Hulsey Pat Hunter Tony Jackson Randy James Kathie Joy Diane Junkens Vicki Kelly Cheryl Render Cindy Render Elke King Susan Kiraly Diane Klys Mary Knight Wilma Kohler Tom Kolwicz Rick Komar David Kopanda Donna Korlin Peggy Kostoff Garry Kostyo Jamie Krasowski Lorraine Krcelich Dave Krizan Bill Krizman Kathy Krizmanic Gary Krucina Janet Kruse Susan Kudla Ernest Labas Kim Lambert Patrice Land!

W. Becker. WORKING to solve the issues of the city ' s school system are School Board members (seated) Treas. C. Scott, Pres. R. Potesta, Sec. Mrs. C. Stern, (standing) Superintendent O. Rapp, Mr. E. Hudson, and Dr. H. W. Eggers. Unexpected problems arose when the dream of moving into the new Governors’ mansion came true this year. The administration, the faculty, and the entire student body learned that cooperation was needed to prevent the confusion caused by the school’s delayed opening. Mr. W. Winston Becker, principal, and Mr. George Kurteff, vice-principal and head of discipline, worked to¬ gether to solve the new difficulties which developed due to Morton’s new, closed campus. This program was also put into effect this year to regulate the students working hours in school and to help curb truancy. Students were not allowed to eat lunch outside of the cafeteria except by attaining special permission from the office. Employed under federal grants at Morton this year are Mrs. June Jones and Mrs. Pat Argus. Mrs. Jones is work¬ ing closely with the School Psychology Department under the Intensive Counseling for Underachievers Pro¬ ject. The Visiting Teacher Program, under which Mrs. Argus is working, classifies her as a “visiting teacher.” Her work can be compared to that of a social worker. Morton High School’s accreditation to the North Cen¬ tral Association was reinstated this year due to the con¬ stant efforts of the Hammond School Board. Respect has been acknowledged to the late Virginia Davis, a former English teacher at Morton High School, by a Memorial Fund dedicated in her honor. Both the administration, alumni, and students contributed.
