NEEDED ENCOURAGEMENT is shouted to this youngster as he makes his first dive. Children of all ages used the pool during the summer. Touches ' During Morton ' s Second Year During the second year of Morton’s existence, all of the rooms of the new school were complete. Students no longer stumbled over workmen, wires and boxes. One of the long-awaited “final touches” was the sec¬ ond set of gymnasium bleachers. The school received them in late February after basketball season. Signs were placed in the parking lot during the fall which directed students and faculty to the proper park¬ ing spot. This was an Association project. Three plaques that depicted the three mythological fates were added to the entrance of the auditorium. On April 12 the plaques were dedicated to Miss Vir- gina Davis, a Morton English teacher who passed away last year after teaching 38 years. Mrs. Lee Schillereff of Illinois sculpted the memorial. For the first time this year Morton’s swimming pool was open at night to children of all ages and adults. Swimmers had to be residents of Hammond. Students who participated in the dramatic produc¬ tions utilized the Green Room which is located below the Auditorium stage. This year the room, a combina¬ tion make-up, costume and dressing room, was deco¬ rated with the framed programs of past plays. HAMMERING AWAY at a parking lot sign is Secretary of Safety, J. Grasha. The addition of the signs was an Association project. AS CURTAIN TIME APPROACHES, preparations are made in the green room, a make-up area below the stage.

Floats, Cars Produce Class Competition Decorated floats, cars, a new queen and the tradi¬ tional parade are all a part of the memory of the 1968 homecoming festivities. The annual affair was con¬ ducted on the evening of Friday, October 18. Presentation of the Homecoming Court and the an¬ nouncement of the 1968-69 queen comprised the half¬ time activities of the football game against Gavit. Each of the five queen candidates was escorted down the football field and presented to the crowd by a senior boy. The Association President then announced the name of the 1968-69 queen to the spectators. She was awarded a bouquet of red roses and a crown and reign¬ ed over the homecoming dance held in the cafeteria. Two floats and cars from homerooms and school clubs composed the parade. Led by a car containing the assistant principal and mayor, the parade began at Morton’s parking lot and continued on the route through the neighborhood before returning to Morton. Constructing plans, designing paper flowers and meeting after school hours went into the preparation of the junior and senior floats. The theme of the senior float, “Skunk ’Em,” was portrayed by a huge black skunk which ejected smoke from its tail. “Guvs Won’t Wear Off as the Game Wears On,” the theme of the junior float, was depicted by a towering football player and a simulated can of “Ban” deodorant. The cars were decorated with flowers and crepe paper. BATON AFLAME, senior Mary Ann Stryzinski demonstrates coordination and agility with a difficult manuever. Homecoming Half-Time Includes Queen Highlighting the ’68-’69 homecoming festivities was the crowning of the queen.

The production, present¬ ed in the Morton auditorium, was the heart-warming story of a young, naive girl, Lili, who joins a lively car¬ nival. Through her experiences with Paul, a bitter, despondent puppeteer, she learns that there is more to life than just love and happiness, that hate and malevolence also exist in the world. In addition to CARNIVAL, the Top Hat Theatre presented three other productions and three one-act plays. Under the direction of Mr. Donn Edwards, as¬ piring thespians presented THE WIZARD OF OZ, TRUDI AND THE MINSTREL and CYRANO DE BERGERAC. Production of THE WIZARD OF OZ, sponsored by the Pi Epsilon Kappa Alpha Gamma Chapter, benefited Boys’ Town. The one-act plays, “Dust of the Road,” “Supressed Desires” and “Riders to the Sea” were presented on Jan. 18. Directed by stu¬ dents, they provided an opportunity to exhibit leader¬ ship, creativity, performing and directing techniques.

" Schlegel (Mark Patai) directs attention toward his " Carnival " dancers as sad clown (Ron Zgunda) contemplates the excitement of performing in Paris. Unusual Activities Part of Student Life This year unusual circumstances added to the ever- changing student life. During the hot spring months the classrooms were uncomfortable and, in order to keep cool, the faculty discovered the solution— teaching classes outside or on the stairways. New and different ways of filling leisure time in school were introduced. Besides studying in the library during their lunch-studies, students went to the Com¬ mons where they could relax and play games of chess. Some went to the gymnasium and played ping-pong. Other pupils took a stroll in the open courtyard. Dur¬ ing the early fall a television was set up in the small auditorium so that students and faculty could watch the World Series during their free hours. Many assemblies were staged in the auditorium. Some contained vital information concerning health, careers and auto safety. Other assemblies were pre¬ sented to raise money while entertaining students. During Christmas time members of the Art Club constructed ornaments and set up a wooden framework for a tree. Located in the Student Commons, the large unique “tree” was supported on a huge sheet of card¬ board and consisted of evergreen branches, colorfully decorated ornaments and silver tinsel. CARDBOARD ORNAMENTS AND TINSEL are placed on the Student Commons Christmas tree by art student Mike Gralski. 12 BASEBALL FANS attentively watch the World Series in the small auditorium.

The cafeteria’s and commons’ oriental setting created the mood for the prom theme, “Far Eastern Fantasy.” Murals of orien¬ tal painting and scrolls of Chinese writing garnished the walls. A life-size rickshaw was used as the back¬ ground for the prom pictures. Placed in the center of the floor was a torii, a Japanese gateway, through which couples walked in the Grand March. Enveloped in the prom atmosphere, couples danced to the music of the Hal Morris Band from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. Sponsored by the junior class parents, the After- Prom Party was held at San Remo Restaurant in Grif¬ fith. Continuing with the Far Eastern touch, the theme was “Let’s Go Oriental.” Decorations were furnished by San Remo’s and party favors were given to all girls attending. Continuous entertainment was supplied by a combo, the Westminsters, and the Todd Family, a feature act. Beginning at 12 midnight, the dancing and dining came to a close at 4 a.m. Concluding their prom weekend, students disregard¬ ed all previous formal attire. Clad in sportswear, they dispersed to Brookfield Zoo, Turkey Run and Indiana Dunes State Park the following Sunday morning. NOT AFRAID of the steady hand of Rudy Skorupa is a playful racoon.

Upperclassmen Take Yearly Excursion All thoughts of school studies were abandoned by 104 students as they left on the annual Washington- New York excursion. They departed from Hammond on Tuesday, October 20, on the Erie-Lackawana train. After some hectic moments of getting situated with luggage and hotel rooms, students took a night tour of their first stop, Washington, D.C. They viewed the main attractions such as the Lincoln and Washington Monuments. The Smithsonian Institute, the Wax Mu¬ seum, Arlington Cemetery and the Library of Con¬ gress were visited. Students had an opportunity to tour the White House and the Capitol Building. While in Georgetown, a residential section of Washington, stu¬ dents saw many early American architectural styles such as Georgetown University and the Yellow House. Following a four hour train ride the next day, stu¬ dents arrived in New York City. Their days consisted of the usual sightseeing, including the Statue of Liber¬ ty, the Empire State Building, Times Square and the United Nations Building. Saturday night, students saw “The Rockettes” in Radio City and a first-run movie, “Bullit.” During the final hours of their Eastern trip, they wer e allowed to venture out on their own to explore places of interest to them. FINDING DELIGHT in sharing their ice cream cone upon leaving the Statue of Liberty Ferry are juniors Flo Metz and Marsha Hunt. Students Utilize Leisure Time Partaking ASTONISHED AND SPEECHLESS is Alan Parrish as he re¬ ceives the title oi 1969 Mr. Football. He was chosen from five candidates nominated by the football team. in School Social Events, Games, Dances Helping to fulfill leisure time and provide enjoy¬ ment, many soci al activities were held for students at MHS. These events also provided opportunities for pupils to meet people and develop social behavior. Marking the close of the football season was the Mr. Football dance. Students cast their vote for one senior boy whom they felt was most deserving of the acknowledgment from five candidates on the team. Baby pictures of the candidates were on display in the cafeteria to help students make their choice. Booster Club sponsored the annual girls’ basketball game on March 18. Each of the four classes were rep¬ resented in the games. In the first game the freshman girls defeated the sophomores. The seniors overtook the juniors in the second game. In the final game the seniors became champs by defeating the freshmen. Highlighting the evening was the senior-faculty game. The faculty triumphed over the seniors 57-54. During half-time, the six candidates for Mr. Basketball were escorted down the gym floor and the winner was an¬ nounced. A dance was held later in his honor. Several volunteers from the Student Association be¬ came active in collecting funds for the March of Dimes. These students received donations from shoppers at Montgomery Wards and Woodmar shopping centers. MR.

Inaugural Ball Honors Chosen Leaders TO FINISH CENTERPIECES for the Inaugural Ball on time, the Decorating Committee accelerates production. Association partici¬ pants are Lynn Buckmaster, Tom Bevill, Kathy Goldschmidt, Elaine Stevenson, Mary Ann Miner, Andrea Bandura and Sandi Carey. “Phases of School” was the theme for the 1968 Inaugural Ball. The semi-formal affair, conducted this year as a “turn-about,” was held in Morton’s cafeteria on November 29. Couples danced to the music of the Hal Morris orchestra. The Inaugural Ball, held annual¬ ly, honors the newly-initiated Student Association of¬ ficers. To emphasize the theme, centerpieces were garnished with basketballs, governor s, books and musi¬ cal notes made of black paper and mounted on styro¬ foam. Seated at the head table were the Student Associ¬ ation officers and cabinet. Proceeds from the Ball were used as funds to benefit the Association. Elections, which took place in early spring, were held in a different manner from that of past years. A voting machine, installed in the Association office, en¬ abled students to choose Association officers, class officers and senators in a way similar to state and national elections. Campaigning, as in the past, con¬ sisted of posting signs and handing out tags. In addi¬ tion, finalists for president, vice-president and recorder of the Student Association addressed the student body at an assembly and recited their qualifications and opinions on school issues. Students then made their choices on the basis of these speeches. CAPTURING A MOMENT between classes, Lynn Fleischer detects a perfect opportunity to ask Bob Haider to the turn-about Inaugural. Students ' Dress Displays Latest Fashions Dressing in style, Morton students were always “on the go” in their freewheeling, teen-age fashions. They showed their variations in taste as they selected their wardrobe of school attire. Pacesetting students dis¬ played the recent modes during school, social and academic activities throughout the year. Popular shoe fashions for the school year included square-toed loafers and baby-dolls for girls and sad¬ dle shoes, wing tips, chug-a-boots and loafers for boys. Sweater vests for both boys and girls were worn during school. Striped ascots and ties were added to blouses and shirts to “pep” them up with extra color. Plaid slacks were worn with solid-colored shirts, giv¬ ing the boys at Morton a collegiate look. In contrast with the boys’ collegiate look, Morton girls initiated a mod style with the new leather fash¬ ions. Dresses, jumpers and skirts, coupled with match¬ ing vests, were made of a simulated leather. Culotte outfits were permissable for social activities, such as games and dances, but not accepted for school wear. To develop a total look, opaque stockings were worn with the culottes. All fashions worn by students dur¬ ing the year complied with Morton’s Dress Code. SQUARE-TOED LOAFERS and saddle shoes typify feminine and masculine footwear worn by fashion-conscious students. RECENT STYLES, as modeled by Tom Grasha and Barb Zarnik, in¬ clude plaid slacks and pantskirts with matching jackets. STRIPED TIES and ascots, worn by C. Schultz and D. Bertagnolli, are becoming common accessories in school attire. 22 CLASS ROYALTY, the 1969 Kings and Queens, are Patti Dudek and Jim Gra- sha (seniors). Barb Genisauski and Jeff Geissler (juniors), Sandi Brazenas and Richard Davis (sophomores) and Can¬ dy Ladd and Larry Russell (freshmen). Government Club For four years Morton’s Government Club support¬ ed two Vietnamese children, Nguyen Thi Trung and Nguyen Thi Be, by sending them $15 a month. This provided education for the children and food, clothing and shelter for the family. This year the club will ter¬ minate sponsorship. The Foster Parent’s Plan, Inc. in¬ formed Morton that nine year old Trung and her fam¬ ily, after their village had been entirely demolished by the Viet Cong, were reported missing. Eight year old Be no longer requires assistance as her parents are now working and are able to support the family. Under the direction of Sponsor Mr. Moorehead, the Government Club first joined the foster parents plan for overseas orphans eight years ago. Whether the club will undertake sponsorship of orphans in the future is uncertain. Mr. Moorehead feels that funds should now be used to help children in our own country. “Cupid’s Concerto,” chosen theme of the now an¬ nual dance, was the money-making project for the orphans. “Tomorrow’s Hope,” a local band, provided entertainment. Highlighting the evening was the an¬ nouncement of the one boy and girl from each class who became the 1969 King and Queen. The winners were selected from candidates in each homeroom. Loses Viet Children VIETNAMESE FOSTER CHILDREN Nguyen Thi Be and Nguyen Thi Trung are no longer supported by the Government Club. 23 Award Recipients Exhibit Leadership in ACCEPTING THE CHALLENGE AND HONOR of the positions of Boys ' State delegates, seniors Ron Zgunda, Rob Keilman, David Sadewasser and Tim McGuan anticipate their duties. Possessing outstanding qualities in various fields, a select group of students won honors for Morton Senior High School. Several city organizations sponsored these activities for interested students. Chosen by the Social Studies Department as the DAR award winner was one senior girl considered to be the good citizen of the school. The winner of this award has excelled in mastering the qualities of pa¬ triotism, service, leadership and dependability. Judged on the basis of an interest in government, leadership, character, courage, cooperativeness and scholarship, Social Studies teachers chose the Hoosier Girls’ and Boys’ State Representatives. These repre¬ sentatives spent one week during the summer at Indiana University partaking in a mock government. Community Chest representatives aroused class competition while collecting funds. Morton’s commit¬ tee raised the largest amount of money of all the Ham¬ mond schools. By touring the Carmelite Home for Boys, Y.M.C.A., Good Will Industries and Brooks House, they realized the importance of the fund. Science teachers awarded the senior with the highest grade average in science subjects the Bausch and Lomb Award. The winner was eligible for a scholar¬ ship at the University of Rochester in New York. 24 Academics, Science, Community Affairs STUDENT COMMITTEE MEMBERS counting money from the Community Chest Drive are FRONT ROW: Ed Skager, Barb Bogert. BACK ROW: Barb Vanes, Ron Zgunda, Kathy Mosca. Their job was to prompt classes to compete with each other in donating funds. EXPERIMENTING WITH CHEMICALS.

Now major festivities such as the prom, the Inaugural Ball and homecoming remain only memories. One of the highlights of the senior year was senior week. Graduates, donned in crazy attire, had the op¬ portunity to perform practical jokes and clownish pranks. Finally on May 30, wearing their finest ap¬ parel, the class of ’69 attended the Awards Assembly and outstanding seniors were acknowledged. On May 22 the senior banquet was held at the Log Restaurant in Chicago Heights. Mr. Bill Passmore, recipient of the Handicapped American of the Year Award, was the speaker. Guests of honor included Dr. and Mrs. O. Rapp and Mr. and Mrs. W. Preston. In the auditorium on June 1 the traditional Bac¬ calaureate Service was held. Guest speaker was Rever¬ end Ralph Steele of the First Methodist Church in Hammond. Reverend Joseph Vamos of Saint Catherine of Siena Church in Hammond gave the invocation. Or¬ gan music was played by graduate Larry Rapchak and the Concert Choir sang various religious selections. On June 4 the Class of 1969 walked down a canvas aisle placed in the gymnasium. The graduates heard speeches from the valedictorian, co-salutatorians and class officers. Mr. Alfred Kuhn, a member of the School Board, then distributed the diplomas. 27 ACADEMICS UP, UP, AND AWAY went Aca¬ demics. Technical equipment and countless practical machines were in full use. Pupils explored, dis¬ covering new interests and de¬ veloping the old. Many found their future occupations. Foreign Games Acquaint Students with GREEK STRATEGY that was used in the historic Trojan War is ex¬ plained to Latin classmates by junior Wes Lukoshus. Along with teaching the speech of a country, the purpose of the foreign language classes was to fam¬ iliarize the pupils with the music and recreation of the people of that nation. Students made demonstra¬ tions of games and performed various contemporary pieces of music for the benefit of their classmates. Beginning Spanish included studies of the verb ten¬ ses, structure of sentences and parts of speech. Other classes supplemented the usual material by reading such novels as THE THREE-CORNERED HAT. French students added to their vocabulary by read¬ ing a monthly magazine, “Passe-Partout.” This revue often contained records of songs and stories. German students played German bingo, a game based on vocabulary use instead of numbers. Advanced classes read a magazine “Der Roller.” They also read a short novel, DER VERSCHWUNDEN MINIATUR. Latin classes studied Greek history, which covered the tale of the Trojan horse. Students learned the roots, prefixes and suffixes that compose English words and their general meanings in use today. All language classes utilized the language lab where films where shown and dialogues were heard on tapes. Students also recorded their voices on tapes, then re¬ played them for pronunciation and vocabulary. PLAYING GERMAN BINGO, junior Leonard Strom challenges his class¬ mates to a game that gives more prac¬ tice in concentration and numbers. LE TEMPS Countries; History, Music Vary Courses BANDERILLAS IN POSITION, Spanish student Pam Briggs relates the procedures of Spain ' s national pastime, the bullfight. Banderillas are placed in the bull ' s neck by banderilleros to weaken the bull before the matador ' s final blow with the sword. PRONUCIATION OF SOUNDS is important to senior Mike Balog for French class. The mirror assists in making certain his mouth formations are correct to produce vowel sounds. NORMAL ROUTINE FORGOTTEN, sophomore Pat Verbick seren¬ ades her class with a romantic ballad on a Spanish guitar. Pupils Utilize Visual Aids in Recitations WORKING TO MEET a deadline. Kathy Mosca endeavors to have her page in on time for the printer. She arranges the make-up by pasting galley proofs. Darkened rooms, backdrops and pictures created atmospheres for varied assignments in many of the English classes. Topics ranged from studying grammar and mythology to American and English Literature. Examination of Greek classics such as the AENEID finalized English I mythology studies. English II in¬ cluded reviewing grammar, studying parts of speech and components of a sentence and their functions. Second year courses emphasized different types of speeches such as humorous, demonstrative and per¬ sonal experiences. Memorization of excerpts from JULIUS CAESAR also remained a part of the course. English V and VI dealt with American authors. The works of Longfellow, Irving and Hawthorne, three of the early writers, were read in the first semester while the works of contemporary authors such as Salinger and Pearl Buck were examined in English VI. Stu¬ dents also learned to observe symbolism, style, struc¬ ture, technique and character development. World Literature examined English authors from 400 A.D. to the pres ent. Analysis of THE CANTER¬ BURY TALES and CRIME AND PUNISHMENT led to the comparison of earlier styles to those more recent. Composition VIII was a writing course, consisting of creating subjective and descriptive papers. Speech, debate and journalism were supplementary courses in the more defined areas of English. All of these offered opportunities directed toward a career. LEGENDARY CHARACTERS such as the cyclops were drawn by Pat Yonkee to help pupils visualize creatures from long ago. CANDLELIGHT AND SILHOUETTES provide the proper atmosphere for junior Dick Vanes to recite " The Raven " by Poe. English V students use props and records for interpreting the works of American authors. UNIQUE DEMONSTRATIONS such as the proper technique of ear piercing highlighted a speech class. Terry Smith uses Nancy Dykstra for her " victim. " Novel Teaching Methods Alter Pattern OBSERVING THE PROCESS of a Typing I class. Mrs. Bringas and typing. Introduced in summer school, this co-teaching method proved Mr. Welte work together to instruct students in the procedures of successful and was continued throughout the school year. PREPARING A STENCIL for use on a mimeograph machine, seniors Linda Buono and Linda Cook learn the copy¬ ing steps used in clerical practice. of Classes; Drawings Assist Math Pupils DEMONSTRATING THE USES of a Glenda Oglesby explains volume to geometrical model, sophomore a Geometry I class. Watchful eyes over the shoulder and a guiding voice in the air are characteristic of the novel teaching method introduced this year in Typing I. Mathematic areas continued with the “modern math” teaching techniques, which teachers adopted recently. Co-teaching was responsible for the changes made in the typing classes. While one teacher gave directions using a microphone, the other would help individuals. Students were given various problems used for drill and graded work, such as memorandums, letters and one and three minute timed writings. Clerical practice class experienced working with a new machine, the friden. This ten-key printing cal¬ culator did most mathematical computations. Ma¬ chines associated with the course include the victor, the executary, the mimeograph and the dictaphone. Stenography, a two hour secretarial course, prepared students in areas of dictation and typing. Business law, general business and bookkeeping, also offered in this department, taught the basic fundamentals in personal and business money-management. Senior sales classes learned personal and telephone soliciting. Advanced math pupils took analysis, a course in which students prove an assumed result to a problem. Regular and honor classes in geometry and algebra continued. Also, a two year course of basic math was available for those not wishing to study these subjects. PLOTTING A POINT on a coordinate graph, freshman Carla Usinger demon¬ strates one of the uses of a Cartesian coordinate plane for an Algebra I class. By using this method, solution sets of linear equations were found. 35 PROBLEMS FOR PHYSICS are analyzed by Mark Powers and Joe Ziemba. Labs enabled students to practice fundament¬ al principles of computer programming. Computers, Experiments Widen Range Possession of technical electrical machines pro¬ vided new growth of the science department. Modern equipment such as computers and television sets as¬ sisted the faculty in teaching techniques. In physics, students analyzed simple and complex problems using computers. Programming an exercise into the device and then recording the feedback as data were some of the fundamental procedures learned. Physical science class, a recent addition to the science department, was a general course for students who did not take chemistry or physics. During one lab, participants had the opportunity to make red wine and afterwards sample the resulting product. Models and charts of the body helped Health and Safety students to recognize the functions of each organ. Pupils demonstrated the first-aid techniques showing correct steps for bandaging the injured. Biology classes studied animal life and their body functions. The addition of the closed circuit TV sim¬ plified the steps used in dissecting. Students were able to view in detail the anatomical systems of fish, clams and worms, along with other specimens. Chemistry classes concentrated on achieving correct chemical mixtures and formulas. Lectures and class discussions benefited pupils when preparing for lab. Playing a chief role in the psychology class was the use of ESP and ink blot tests. Experiments in learning and retroactive inhibition were conducted as students performed trials tracing mazes. MUSCLE REFLEXES of frogs are tested by biology students Chuck Mamrila and Kathy White while competing them in a race. During the 36 year students in biology classes studied comparative anatomy, characteristics and behavioral patterns of animals. WITH RELIEF junior Gerard Drapeau sighs " A-h-h, " after stepping under the chemistry room ' s shower. The purpose of this safety device is to wash off dangerous chemicals spilled on the body. Nixon Triumphs in Classroom Elections Presidential election year enabled U.S. History stu¬ dents to hold a mock class election and to vote for one of the three major candidates. The final tally showed that Richard Nixon led with only a slight mar¬ gin over Hubert Humphrey and George Wallace registered third with a substantial minority vote. Investigating the origin of the two major political parties played a key role in understanding the Ameri¬ can heritage. U.S. History pupils studied documents including the Constitution and the Monroe Doctrine. World History classes held discussions on the cur¬ rent crises, including the war in Viet Nam. Govern¬ ment actions and legislative bills were analyzed and discussed, giving the pros and cons of each. Fact-find¬ ing reports on ancient civilizations became a familiar assignment along with the extensive tests covering the information compiled outside of class. Geography students studied the different land ter¬ rains in the United States and foreign countries and re¬ ported on the earthquake which occurred in early November. The earthquake, concentrated in the Mid¬ west, affected 22 of the American states. Government classes learned about the structure and purpose of the U.S. governing body. Obtaining news¬ paper clippings and writing term papers were added to daily classroom participation as learning processes. RECITING THE CONSTITUTION for U.S. History I students is junior Dan Pariso. Portions of the document were memorized. ILLUSTRATING A FURNACE used in the production of steel, geography teacher Mr. Nelson employs the overhead pro¬ jector which aids students ' vision. Electives Assist Students ' Career Plans Adding variety to every student’s schedule, the elec¬ tives offered at Morton cover many different types of interests. Cooking classes for both boys and girls, clothing classes, art, woodshop and electronics are among some of the available choices. With a clash and a clatter, the pupils in Boys’ Foods learned to prepare basic recipes such as pies and cupcakes. Cooking classes for girls were extensive in teaching proper diet and etiquette. Complete meals were planned in the advanced classes. First year sewing classes included good grooming besides basic sewing procedures. In advanced clothing students chose patterns and various types of material such as wool, corduroy and cotton. Rewiring systems of broken home utensils played a major part of the new electronics class this year. The boys disassembled items such as radios, irons and toasters and repaired them in class. Woodshop students made several different projects. The boys had the choice of making ashtrays, podiums or lamps and made model homes for extra credit. Art classes, also offered as an elective, allowed students to express their creative abilities. All aspects of the field were explored during the year. VISUALIZING A HOME suitable to his taste. T.

Making cookies was one of the first recipes prepared in Boys ' Foods. Dancing, Gym Stunts, Tumbling Require BALANCE AND COORDINATION are needed to perform stunts on the parallel bars. Mary O ' Brien demonstrates one of the basic maneuvers, the swan balance. IN PERFECT FORM freshman Patricia Walkowiak demonstrates the seat drop. This is one of the many steps in a beginning trampoline routine learned during the first week of gymnastics class. TO DODGE THE BALL is the idea when playing the game of battle ball. Ken Bosch becomes the target as Joe Hussey, Pat Mullane, Randy Jackna and John Vandenbemden scatter from the ball ' s path. 42 Consistent Practice Composing the main physical education program at Morton is gymnastics, swimming and basketball. Dur¬ ing the course’s required year, a six weeks period is devoted to each of these areas with some atten¬ tion given to the minor sports such as volleyball. Young gymnasts, both boys and girls, learned stunts on the ropes, trampoline and mats. The girls also worked with the parallel bars, horse and balance beam. Short gymnastic routines on each piece of equipment were memorized and performed for the final grade. All freshmen learned basic rules and skills of bas¬ ketball. The first few weeks of the grading period were spent playing practice games. During the last week class members formed teams and then staged a final tournament. Students perfected their jump shots and shooting. They also acquired skill in learning how to guard and out-maneuver their opponents. Constant practice and correct form were necessary requirements in swimming. Both boys’ and girls’ classes offered chances for each student to earn a swimming rank in the American National Red Cross water safety program. Beginner, advanced beginner and intermedi¬ ate classes were the most commonly completed. How¬ ever, swimmer and advanced swimmer were offered. BASIC STEPS such as promenading a square assist freshman girls in learning the art of folk dancing during gym class. PRACTICE DIVES in Physical Ed¬ ucation class enable the boys to perfect their techniques. Swimming is taught for a six weeks period. ACTIVITIES UP, UP, AND AWAY went Ac¬ tivities. Larger facilities made possible the formation of new clubs. Old organizations expand¬ ed their membership. More extra¬ curricular activities created more student involvement. 45 Council Performs Administrative Duties ASSOCIATION OFFICERS— FRONT ROW: R. Pumnea (pres.). SECOND ROW: K. Mosca (sec.).

Secretary of Student Projects was a new position adopted by the Association cabinet. The position was founded for the purpose of supplying school areas with appropriate holiday decorations. Other cabinet mem¬ bers voluntarily supervised several charitable pro¬ jects such as the March of Dimes Drive. Learning to accept and carry out responsibilities, members of the Student Association discovered and developed powers of leadership. Students were given the opportunities to voice personal opinions and be¬ come better acquainted with fellow classmates. Student Association sponsored a pre-school orienta¬ tion to help incoming freshmen become familiar with new surroundings and high school procedures. Student government duties also included organizing homecom¬ ing festivities and compiling student directories. Sectional spirit week was a new activity created by the Association. Classes were given points based on signs and enthusiasm displayed at the pep rally and basketball game. Mr. Kurteff announced the winning class over the intercom the following day. During bi-weekly meetings of the student court, stronger rules and penalties were enforced. To aid in the accuracy and speed of the court, an assistant re¬ corder was appointed to help during lunch hours. Future Occupations, In observing our first President’s wedding anniver¬ sary, the History Club held a dance in honor of George and Martha. “Happy Anniversary George and Martha” was chosen as the theme. Silhouettes of the celebrated couple decorated the cafeteria. Profits from the dance were used to take a field trip in the spring. Selling multi-colored ribbon was the chief fund rais¬ ing project this year for the FTA members. The profits from this drive were used toward a scholarship for one graduating senior. A point system was set up by the officers to determine to whom the scholarship would be awarded. At the bi-weekly meeting various repre¬ sentatives from Indiana’s colleges spoke on topics regarding courses and teaching experiences. Government Club’s yearly fund raising project, “Cupid’s Concerto,” was held on February 21. A king and queen were chosen from individual classes. Hi-C membership is primarily composed of those students interested in health careers. Speakers from various health centers in the area lectured on future occupations in the numerous fields of medicine. Future Secretaries Club was open to all students interested in a business career. Regular meetings were held at assigned schools throughout the area. WHILE IN THE MOOD for " swinging, " junior Mike Westerfield dances to the psychedelic music after a Morton basketball game.

To recognize the outstanding students at Morton, honor groups were originated. Members must remain in good standing and fulfill scholastic obligations. Debate, affiliated with N.F.L., captured numerous awards. Defeating 21 other schools, Morton debaters became the Calumet Region Forensic League Champ¬ ions. The debate team received a first place rating at Indiana High School Forensic League Tournaments. Maintaining high entrance qualifications, National Honor Society was established to recognize outstand¬ ing students. High character, service and leadership standards have to be met in order to be accepted. The major fund raising activity of the club was the spon¬ soring of a dance, “Oriental Madness.” Under the direction of the National Honor Society, Tutors Club consists of students who are qualified to aid others with difficult subjects. Assignments are handled by Miss Clair, sponsor of the organization. National Forensic League is an honor group found¬ ed for the purpose of promoting and developing skills in speech. Membership requires that students earn at least 25 points while participating in debate, discus¬ sion, poetry or dramatic interpretation contests. NATIONAL FORENSIC LEAGUE MEMBERS— FRONT ROW: L.

Attending a two week journalism workshop at In¬ diana University, the TOP HAT editor and assistant editor gained experience in yearbook organization and make-up. This year the TOP HAT editors chose to con¬ vey the theme with art work on the division pages. Due to new sporting activities introduced by the athletic department and the expansion of clubs, the addition of eight pages to the yearbook was necessary. Yearbook section editors prepared individual por¬ tions of the TOP HAT. They had the responsibilities of organizing and completing pages to be sent to the printer. To speed up the completion of section divisions of the yearbook, assistant editors were assigned to work under the original section editor. Hindered by money shortages, the MORTONITE staff sponsored a magazine sale. The entire student body was asked to sell at least one magazine to provide sufficient funds for future publications of the paper. The staff was able to continue its work and the MOR¬ TONITE again was given the highest award by the National Scholastic Press Association, All American. Balancing headlines and pictures, MORTONITE page editors worked to create eye pleasing pages. Bi-weekly deadlines were met by the page editors. ASSISTANT EDITORS— FRONT ROW: K. Goldschmidt, L.

She models a sandwich sign to attract perspective buyers. Quill and Scroll members were responsible for the private phone installed in the publications office. This new feature enabled staff members to conveniently make necessary business calls. An MHS pin sale was also sponsored by this honorary society, composed of upperclassmen who have been involved with one of the school publications and are classified in the upper third of their class. Profits from this drive were used to pay for a portion of the annual banquet. Journalists on the TOP HAT and MORTONITE staffs strived to improve their “top-rated” publications. While section and page editors planned the contents, edge editors and reporters assisted them by writing needed headlines, captions and copy. Using a point system compiled by the chief editors, all staff members obtained their grades by the quality and quantity of their work. These factors enabled the students to apply for positions on next year’s staffs. Working to boost yearbook sales, TOP HAT sales¬ men paraded through the cafeteria wearing sandwich signs. They informed students that books were on sale and designated the price. Although the price of the book was increased one dollar, due to climbing print¬ ing costs, this year’s sales surpassed last year’s. MORTONITE REPORTERS— FRONT ROW: E. McBroom, K. Miers, N. Bielak, C.

Members are taught all phases of etiqu¬ ette and social graces pertaining to home, school and community life. After-school meetings provided op¬ portunities for girls to discuss current attire issues. Advanced methods of painting and drawing were taught during weekly meetings of the Art Club. Work¬ ing with ceramics and making jewelry were extra-cur¬ ricular activities in which the club took part. The elec¬ tion of officers was abolished to give all students a chance to contribute ideas freely. Participants must be enrolled in an art class to qualify as members. Home Economics Club sponsored a stationery sale to provide a family with presents and a Christmas meal. Various field trips to hospitals were planned to bring cheer to the ill and elderly.

Color wheels, black lights and psychedelic posters helped carry out the theme “Kaleidescope” at the Chemistry Club dance. Field trips to Standard Oil Company and Argonne National Laboratories were made possible by the dance’s profits and a taffy apple sale. The curriculum of the meetings included lectures, lab work and films informing the members of the many different types of human and animal life. Students were also given the opportunity to further their scien¬ tific knowledge by viewing microscopic slides. This year Electronic Club’s membership tripled that of last year. Repairing radios was the main duty of all members at each of the bi-weekly meetings. Physics Club’s annual peanut brittle sale was again the money raising project sponsored by the club. The profits enabled the club to attain Dr. Battenburg, an engineering professor from Purdue Calumet Campus, as a speaker at a specially called meeting. After-school bake sales and dances sponsored by Zoology Club helped to furnish a closed circuit TV used in observing special scientific experiments. Club members also performed operations on rats with the use of a Kymograph to record the heart beat. CHEMISTRY CLUB MEMBERS— FRONT ROW: J. Usinger, K. Carter, ROW: M. Reitz. K. Podkul, B.

Larger facilities and addition¬ al equipment aided in the development of new skills. Audio Visual Club was completely independent. All club activities were conducted by the members. Discus¬ sions were led by the officers and hour captains. Cageball, volleyball, basketball and shuffle board were some of the indoor activities with which G.A.A. members became familiar. The summer months gave students the opportunity to participate in soccer, base¬ ball games and tennis matches. Improving coordina¬ tion, the girls enhanced their athletic abilities. Any interest in phases of photography qualified students for Photo Club membership. Proper picture¬ taking techniques and correct camera operations were taught during weekly meetings.

The sale was so successful that an additional 250 caps were ordered to meet the demands of the student body. Lettermen attended all home sporting events wearing either letter sweaters or jackets. To keep order during basketball games, M-Club posted boys in various areas of the gym. Their responsibilities were to sweep and rope off the court. Lettermen also participated in pre-game activities, such as forming victory lines and holding the hoop. At the end of the year the organization purchased pictures of outstanding athletes to hang in the Morton athletic “Hall of Fame.” To increase its size, Booster Club sponsored a drive to recruit new and interested students. As a result last year’s membership was doubled. For the first time boys became members. Males encouraged school spirit by aiding cheerleaders in chants. In addition to the annual football and basketball dances, Booster Club organized an August hop to raise capital. Cape section, which was officially organized last year, also increased in number. Two rows were added, making a total of 120 girls. The cape section chairman and cheerleaders instructed the cheer block on new formations and cheers performed at home games.

The group sponsored bake sales, car washes and a Christmas candle sale, raising enough money to pro¬ vide 50 female students with red and gray pom pons. To keep up with the current style, uniforms consisted of white knee-high boots and red mini outfits. Pom pon girls worked daily on various routines performed at home basketball games. Members of the organiza¬ tion are upperclassmen who maintained “C” averages. Competing in the Northern Indiana twirling contest, held in Goshen, Indiana, Varsity, B-team twirlers and Flag girls won first place medals. To modernize their appearance, the majorettes designed new uniforms. Under the sponsorship of Mr. Melton, frequent prac¬ tices aided the twirlers in learning new routines and improving rhythm. The majorettes demonstrated their talents during half-time of athletic events. Perfor¬ mances were alternated with those of the Pom pon girls. The 26 twirlers and Flag girls participated in the Christmas, Memorial Day and Halloween parades. KEEPING IN STEP to the background music, N. McTaggart, P. Kriz- man and B.

Against Hammond school teams, however, the Governors established a 1-1-2 record. The season was highlighted by a 20-13 upset victory over the Hammond Tech Tigers. Against Clark, E.C. Roosevelt and Whiting, “Big Red” led in the final period, but lost in the closing minutes of play. A temporary setback came in the game with Clark, when the Pioneers scored the win¬ ning touchdown with 49 seconds remaining to play. Morton tied their homecoming game against Gavit. The Governors thus retained the distinction of never being defeated by the Gladiators in football. In the final two games Morton’s defense went to work, holding opponents to a total of 13 points. The defensive team stopped Hammond High in an effort that resulted in a scoreless tie. The varsity squad termi¬ nated the season defeating Horace Mann. Primarily for his defensive play, Mike Mazur was selected as the most valuable player. Jim Dodson was awarded the distinction of honorary team captain.

Morton’s varsity netmen compiled an 8-3 re¬ cord during the 1968 season under the direction of Coach Ed Musselman. Winning two out of their first four meets, the tennis squad strove to improve their previous year’s record. During their next seven meets the tennis team finished with six more triumphs, bring¬ ing their second season to a successful conclusion. Competing in the singles events, a game between two individuals of opposing teams, were Mike Arga- dine, Martin Buechley and Bill Bardoczi. Dave Alex¬ ander and Joe Bardoczi composed the first doubles team and performed during the regular season of play. Two members of each team participated in the doubles. In the sectionals, held at Harrison Park and Ham¬ mond Tech, Morton’s singles players suffered first round defeats to Hammond High. However, Morton’s hopes were kept alive by Dave Alexander and Martin Buechley, who defeated Hammond Tech and E.C. Roosevelt in rounds one and two of the doubles events. The Governors lost round three to Crown Point. Thirteen boys completed the tennis season with the team and seven courtmen received letters. Members of the team selected Mike Argadine as the most valu¬ able player and Bill Bardoczi as the team captain. This year marked the first time the tennis squad’s home games were played on the new asphalt courts.

Mr. DePeugh has been team coach for 9 years. Higher goals were attained by the varsity cagers this year as they compiled a 7-12 record. The round- ballers were handicapped with a height disadvantage in most games. By following the strategic coaching of Mr. Joe DePeugh the team tried to overcome this problem with sharp passing and outside shooting. After losing to Highland by one point in the season opener, the squad absorbed two more losses before registering their initial win over Griffith. Morton lost its final two games before the East Chicago Holiday Tourney to Gary Froebel and Calumet. In the tourna¬ ment games the Governors were defeated by highly rated E.C. Washington and Terre Haute Gerstmeyer. Surging forward after the tournament play, the Mor¬ ton cagers won five of seven games. The squad con¬ quered the opposing teams from Gary Wirt, Hobart, arch-rival Gavit and Gary Lew Wallace. Sandwiched between two overtime victories over Hammond High and Clark was a Governor loss to Whiting. The final two games of the season were lost to E.C. Washington and Hammond Tech, the latter by three points. Morton Loses Sectional Bout to Oilers While trying to avenge their regular season loss to Whiting, the Morton Governors challenged the Oilers at the Civic Center in the opening round of the Ham¬ mond Sectionals. The squad had worked long hours in training to prepare for the approaching game. Trailing at the end of the first period, 18-15, the Morton roundballers attempted to take the lead before half-time by scoring 15 more points. At the end of the first half the squad was at a two point deficit, 31-29. The game continued to be a close contest through the third period with Whiting leading 47-44. In the last period Whiting scored 29 points to Morton’s 15. This ended the team’s hopes of a section¬ al victory. The final score was 76-59. Wayne Bocken led the team with 15 points. Phil Goss and Mike Marshall added 14 and 12 points, re¬ spectively. The squad’s most valuable player, Roger Hankins, injured an ankle earlier in the week and was able to play only half of the game. He scored 7 points. ELUDING FOUR WHITING DEFENDERS, senior guard Phil Goss drives toward the basket while trying to score.

The Governor splashers were paced by their veteran swim¬ mers this year. The new recruits gained experience in the second year of competition in the new natatorium. In Morton’s first two meets of the season they were defeated by two well established swimming teams, Hammond High and Hammond Tech. However, nei¬ ther deficit of these contests exceeded six points. The splashers then suffered two more setbacks against Hammond High and Horace Mann before gaining their initial victory against the Whiting swimming squad. After being beaten in their following three meets, the swimming team was able to bounce back to termin¬ ate the season with a victory. They defeated Lew Wallace for their final win of the season. Being victorious in the butterfly event many times during the year warranted Don Horvath the distinction of the team’s most valuable swimmer. The team select¬ ed as one co-captain Kevin Barnes, who competed in the breast stroke event. Dennis Summers, a member of the 400-yd. relay and a competitor in the 100-yd. free¬ style, was named as the other co-captain. Other swimmers who made major contributions toward the team’s success were senior Kevin Brennan, sophomore Ed Sharpe and freshman Dave Misanik.

Under the direc¬ tion of Coach Bob Gollner and Assistant Coach Fred Kepler, the team completed their regular season play with a record of ten victories against onl y one defeat. In the initial portion of the season, the Governor wrestlers defeated E.C. Washington, Hammond High and Gavit, holding these three opponents to under 20 points each. At this point in the ’68-’69 wrestling sea¬ son the Governor grapplers confronted E.C. Roosevelt, losing to them by a four point margin. Following this setback the wrestlers combined their efforts for five consecutive wins; four of which were won with margins exceeding 30 points. During this winning streak Morton’s opponents were Hammond Tech, Bishop Noll, Whiting, Clark and Gary Andrean. To arrive at their 10-1 record the Governor grap¬ plers completed their season’s efforts with wins over undefeated Portage and Gary Tolleston. At the end of the season the Governors averaged 32 points in con¬ trast to their opponents 13 points per meet. Gaining recognition as co-captains this season were seniors Tom Bevill and Jim Dodson. Senior Terry Broach was selected as the team’s most valuable player. POSED FOR ACTION, senior heavyweight Bob Hopek stalks his opponent while awaiting an opportunity to catch him off-guard.

One of these recently formed sports is soccer. Under the di¬ rection of Coach Bob Hunt, the soccer team emerged from their premiere season with a 2-2 record. All games were played on Edison Field. In Morton’s first attempt to win a soccer game they were foiled by Gavit, due to three second-half goals scored by the Gladiators. However, the team came back in its second game to defeat Clark by one goal. They also beat Hammond Tech by two goals in their final game after losing the preceding contest to Hammond High. Having only one graduating senior on the squad, the majority of the players returned for competition this year. Mr. Hunt has high hopes that these returning players can win the ’69 city championship. Coach Hunt had strong team balance and good depth in all positions to work with in ’68. The team’s overall strength included offensive players D. Horvath and F. Willison who together scored five goals. ENTANGLED FEET is the result of a collision between Don Horvath and a teammate as they fight for the ball during a workout. SOCCER TEAM MEMBERS— FRONT ROW: J.

Placing high in 11 of the 18 meets held last year, the Governor varsity cindermen attempted to capture a noble position in the conference standings. The team won a sixth place in the Conference Division Playoffs and placed eleventh in the Conference Finals. Although the entire team was responsible for the points won during the meets, the highlight of the sea¬ son was the long jump. Rudy Skorupa not only tied the school record of 22-ft. 7-in. but placed first in the sectionals. He also won second place in the regionals. The skill shown by Skorupa during the season quali¬ fied him for the state meet. In the Hoosier finals at Indianapolis he gained a seventh place. Two players earned titles for the season. Rick Bates was chosen as captain and Rudy Skorupa was selected as the squad’s most valuable player. Along with the nine returning lettermen will be six additional upperclassmen for competition this year. Head Coach Nick Luketic and Assistant Fred Kepler will also direct approximately 30 underclassmen. Looking forward to a successful season, the track coaches are hopeful that the returning players will lead the team to many victories. Some of the return¬ ing lettermen include the mile-relay team of W. Lu¬ koshus, B. Luketic, B. Zbikowski and R. Skorupa, 220 runner J. Ziemba and poll-vaulter T. Broach.

Led by Head Coach Jack Georgas and Assis¬ tant Greg Jancich, the baseballers attempted to surpass the 13-6 record compiled the previous year. By scoring a total of 79 runs during the first nine games of the year, compared to their opponents total of 14 runs, the Morton squad figuratively crushed their opposition. However, during the latter part of the season the baseball team met with difficulty as they lost seven games while winning only four. In the E.C. Tournament the team defeated E.C. Roosevelt in the opening round at Block Stadium. The second game, however, eliminated Morton from the tournament when they were upset by E.C. Washington. Pitcher Stan Perzanowski and shortstop Jim Baasse signed professional contracts with the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros, respectively. Team mem¬ bers chose senior outfielder John Costa as their captain for the ’68 season. Jim Baasse earned the honor of be¬ ing selected as the team’s most valuable player.

To obtain this the Varsity cheerleaders attended a summer camp at Vincennes University. The girls were taught several new cheers at the annual session. To raise money, the Varsity sold “Gov” pins at the annual pre-school pep rally in the fall. They also had bake sales to boost their funds. With the money they earned they purchased a megaphone for each member of the Varsity squad. They also made pantskirts and v-neck vests to modernize their outfits. For the first time the B-Team cheerleaders cheered at Varsity football games. The B-Team cheering squad was placed alongside of the crowd to help the Varsity in leading the yells more efficiently. During the summer bake sales were held to obtain money to purchase needed uniforms for the B-Team. With the funds received new box-pleated skirts and red pantskirt jumpers were purchased by the girls. Freshman cheerleaders were unable to cheer during football season due to tryouts being held too late in the fall. However, after learning cheering techniques they performed for the basketball season.

As new faces arrived and old faces disappeared, the building thrived on the growing spirit. 103 Officers Preside over Executive Board, EXHIBITING CLASS ENTHUSIASM. Senior Class President Mike Argadine stands and cheers during competition yell, " Battle Cry. " Mailing graduation announcements was one of the final activities for seniors. Executive board members helped students order announcements and name cards. Identified by their apricot and rust cords, seniors sponsored dances, selected the Homecoming Court and attended Morton sports events. The Inaugural Ball, Cupid’s Concerto and the Junior-Senior Prom were among the important affairs shared by the class of ’69. Homecoming this year was highlighted by a parade of more than 90 decorated cars and a revival of the traditional floats. The senior float entitled “Skunk ’Em” was awarded the first place trophy d uring the half-time ceremonies. Seniors also won the “Spirit Stick,” a mythical award for the most spirited class. Seniors planned and prepared for future ambitions by pursuing either a basic or an academic course. While some seniors took college entrance exams, others ventured out to acquire jobs corresponding with their personal interests and goals for the coming years. Under the guidance of the class sponsors, Mrs. Beth Stier and Mr. Robert Owczarzak, the annual Senior Banquet was held on May 22 at the Log, where awards were presented to class leaders for their out¬ standing efforts during the past year. The class spon¬ sors also helped the seniors in carrying out final pre¬ parations for Commencement and Baccalaureate. Baccalaureate took place in the auditorium June 1. Graduation, held on June 4 in the gymnasium, brought to a close years of unforgettable memories. SENIOR EXECUTIVE BOARD members— FRONT ROW: M. Verbick, B. Stier. P. Dowling. J. Rowe, R. Reba. J.

Juniors Choose Officers to Guide Class Preparing for their first year as upperclassmen, juniors elected officers to lead the class of ’70. These officers along with the sponsors, Miss Jacqueline Martine and Mr. Robert Welte, worked with the execu¬ tive board making decisions concerning the class. Choosing representatives to serve on the junior exec¬ utive board was one of the foremost duties of the class of ’70. At the meetings held before sc hool, mem¬ bers made plans and preparations for the traditional Junior-Senior Prom. Decorated in Japanese style to stress the oriental theme, “Far Eastern Fantasy,” cou¬ ples danced to the music of Hal Morris and his band from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria. “Guvs Won’t Wear Off as the Game Wears On,” chosen as the theme of the float, occupied extra time of juniors for a month. Members of the class made over 10,000 tissue flowers to cover a seven foot football player and a can of deodorant that expelled smoke. In spirit competition held among the classes during sectional week, juniors captured a first place trophy. Individual classes were judged on the amount of spirit shown at the pep assembly and sectional game. Grad¬ uates of 1970 also placed second in sign competition.

Second-Year Students Choose Officers With a year of experience behind them, sophomores found it easier to adapt to high school life. By par¬ ticipating in academic as well as social activities , sophs expanded their scope of interests. Capturing the award for the best decorated car in the Homecoming Parade was one of the highlights of the year for the sophomore class. An Aladdin’s Lamp that spewed out smoke was attached to the top of the winning car and depicted the theme, “Rub ’Em Out.” Ranking first place in the Community Chest Drive was another distinguishing trait of the sophomores. This year the drive was held in November and all stu¬ dents were urged to contribute any extra money. A contest was held among all the classes, and at the end of the drive Mr. Kurteff announced that the sopho¬ more class had donated the largest amount of money. Members of the Class of ’71 also procured the first three honors in the 22nd Annual Voice of Democracy Contest. All Hammond students, in grades ten through twelve, were eligible to participate in this program. A committee of judges listened to the entries, written and recorded speeches, and then evaluated them on the basis of content, originality and delivery. Acknowl¬ edgment of these students took place in a February assembly when their awards were distributed. 134 SMILING WITH RELIEF after completing various plans pertaining to the sophomore class is President Barbara Vanes.

This class was the largest ever to be enrolled at Morton. Not only did they participate in the various school organizations but each homeroom elected two representatives to at¬ tend association meetings and voice frosh opinions. Electing officers and choosing green as their class color were some of the foremost duties of the fresh¬ man class. The officers helped their class to receive second place honors during spirit week. Graduates of 1972 were also active in homecoming festivities. Although the freshmen were unable to vote for a queen candidate, a boy and a girl were selected to present the flowers and crown to her. Throughout the year, freshmen attended the various dances and games sponsored by the school. The fresh¬ man girls showed their athletic abilities by partici¬ pating in the annual Booster Club basketball game. A class king and queen were crowned at the traditional Cupid’s Concerto sponsored by the Government Club. UNABLE TO MANAGE on his crutches, Freshman Class President S.

Winston Becker directs faculty meetings, approves club activities and handles all Morton ' s administrative problems. Striving for a doctorate in secondary education, Principal William Winston Becker attended Indiana University for the fall semester. During Mr. Becker’s absence, Vice-Principal George Kurteff fulfilled the responsibilities of principal. A new position. Dean of Students, was occupied by Mr. Walter Ruff. By visiting classes, Principal Becker and Vice-Prin¬ cipal Kurteff evaluated the faculty’s teaching methods. Acting as a median between the guidance staff and the teachers, a committee was appointed. Composed of one teacher from each department, this committee discussed counseling policies with the counselors. As speech therapist, Miss Karen Shanta specialized in teaching students to enunciate correctly by means of tape recording devices. The recordings were re¬ played to the pupils to enable them to hear the sound of their voices. Under the Child Welfare and Atten¬ dance Program, Mrs. Eileen Kruger visited homes of students to learn about their environment. Newly elected member to the Hammond School Board is Mr. A. Kuhn. Dr. O. Rapp will retire this June after his third year as superintendent. DEAN OF STUDENTS Mr. Walter Ruff directs students in grooming and behavior, according to official school code. He also supervises detentions, checks absences and curbs truancy. RESUMING THE JOB of assistant principal during the second semes¬ ter.
