Helping senior Gayle Fross to make the right decision, Ms. Betty Lundahl, counselor, illustrates the pros and cons of both. SjJXreparaUonTor futuri cSfrers, senftw Dafl Kraly, Greg Swiercz, and Larry Demko put together a newspaper while acquiring hej ful experience. “Hessville was an isolated down-state community with a fantastic parent following, especially in football. Family influence was much stronger in the 50’s. Students had more respect for their elders. I feel the work ethic has ruined school spirit, extracurricular activities, etc. It’s too easy to get a mill job. Less emphasis is placed on acquiring an education now.” — Mr. Jack Georgas, social studies teacher “Rebels are more open now in their defiance of authority. There was less absenteeism from school in early years. Boy-girl relationships were more reserved in public . . . little open showing of affection and caressing then. The average student today seems to spend less time studying and more time watching T.V. School spirit rises and falls. Students seem to be apathetic now.” — Dr. W. Winston Becker, principal 8 — Anniversary cShomii®® Let your mind wander back, past mini-skirts and flower children .. . back, past sack dresses and pointed-toe shoes ... back to September 1953. Instead of earth shoes and toe socks, it’s saddle shoes and bobbie socks. Instead of Robert Redford and Farrah Fawcett-Majors, it’s Marlon Brando and Marilyn Monroe. Instead of Camaro, it’s DeSoto. Instead of now, it’s then. As the first school bell of the day begins to ring, teenagers fill the halls rushing to their classes. Leather jackets and cashmere sweaters are cast carelessly into lockers. Saddle shoes and sneakers leave imprints on the floor as students proceed to learn the required basics, “reading, writing, and ’rithmatic.” Between classes, the water fountain becomes the local meeting place. The topic being discussed? After-school and evening social plans. Whether to go to the sockhop, Jane’s, or the local roller rink proposes a diffic ult decision. The only solution is to hit all three places. Breaking the school’s rigid dress code, teenagers change into casual clothing before beginning the evening’s activities. Jeans, which weren’t allowed in school, replace dress slacks for the guys. Girls don straight-leg slacks with stirrups instead of “poodle skirts.” After an exciting night at the football game, the gang heads to Jane’s (now the Hessville Restaurant) for a cherry phosphate and then on to Pow-Wow for a quick cruise around the parking lot. Ponytails, bobbie socks, crew cuts, DA’s, sockhops, and soda shops are reminiscent of those yesteryears. And that’s the way it was when Oliver Perry Morton Senior High School began. Some things Seniors Diana Cox experience shared by two. ✓ The vast increase of student driving over the past 25 years has-proved-bazardous at times. Morton has the worst record for traffic violations in the Hammond schools. 10 — Anniversary Marilyn Monroe m ' " 4 l ■ Far rah Fawcett Majors IT’S 25! 25 What? 25 more minutes until lunch? 25 more stairs until you reach the top of the second floor? 25 cents for an order of delicious cafeteria french fries? No, it’s the 25th anniversary of Morton as a four-year high school AND it’s also 25 years since the first publication of TOP HAT was printed. TOP HAT — what’s in a name? Ask Myrna Olson. As a sophomore in 1954, she suggested the name in a contest entitling her to a free annual (yearbook). A surprising number of faculty members — eight in number — have remained at Morton since the beginning of the four-year high school change. In 1954, Dr. W. Winston Becker, principal, taught Speech, English, and was Attendance Counselor. Mr. Charles B. Chidester, head counselor, taught General Math and a class in Commercial Math. Mr. Jack Georgas, U.S. History teacher, taught the same subject in ’54. Miss Jean Martine, Foods teacher, like Mr. Georgas, also taught the same class 25 years ago. Mr. Julian H. Rasmussen, Biology teacher, continued his teaching in the same subject for 25 years. Mr. Walter Ruff, former Dean of Students and teacher of World History, taught classes in Latin and History. Mr. Howard E. Stout, U.S. History teacher, conducted classes in Health and Safety and U.S. History. Mr. Maurey Zlotnik, Physical Education instructor and former Varsity Football coach for 21 years, still teaches Boy’s gym classes. New clubs and classes have entered Morton to fit the needs of students while many of them existing 25 years ago left the curriculum. Junior Red Cross, Junior Historical Society and Hi-Y, to mention a few organizations, no longer exist. The Ski and Caving Clubs appear today as new clubs for Govs to join. ■S SM3 ©fl[K)®8G WSflQ fi “Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song” ... “If’ ... “Take It To The Limit” ... “Lyin’ Eyes” ... “After The Thrill Is Gone” ... Song titles, as good as any example, typify the moods and feelings felt by many Morton students when they learned about the cancellation of the annual Homecoming parade to be held October 6. “Somewhere along the line students have to realize that many irresponsible activities lead to denial of priviledges. The students have been warned about things like that for several years,” stated Dr. W. Winston Becker, principal. Cancellation of the yearly parade occurred only two times in all of Morton’s history. The first time the cancellation resulted from a heavy downpour of rain. Out of the list of “fun” activities that unmentioned students decided to partake in, egg throwing reigned as the leader of the hair-brain ideas, not to mention toilet papering trees (better known as T-P-ing), destroying personal property and racing automobiles over residential lawns. Problems like these had happened before in recent years but no one bothered to stop them. At last someone stood up to take action. Views differed when discussing the cancellation. “The parade is a tradition in Hessville and it shouldn’t have been cancelled. Why couldn’t someone think of parents and little children who anxiously await it every year?” sighed one senior girl. Surviving the Homecoming parade “mess”, the pep rally, football game, crowning of Homecoming Queen, and the dance after the game remained as part of the celebration as usual. On Thursday during Spirit Week, an assembly held in the large auditorium included an introduction of queen candidates and their escorts — Diana Coots, Janet Cunningham, queen Karen Dauksza, Natalie Geissendorfer, Debbie Hendrix, Bonnie Ramirez, and escorts Dan Cox, Herbie Goodrich, Larry Hladek, Jeff Zurawski, Paul Markovich, and Jeff Gardner. Skits during the assembly satirized the Homecoming Queen candidates when couples performed such acts as singing and acrobatics on stage to win a crown. Seniors Kevin Polkinghorn and Becky Pepper won the contest in both assemblies. Adding to the disappointment of this years Homecoming, icy rain soaked the football field throughout Friday night. Despite the rain, the football team managed to overcome Hammond Tech 21-0 before a sparse crowd.

Announcement of the 1977 Homecoming queen came during the halftime festivities. Some students did not expect it to be carried through as it had been in years before because of the heavy downpour of rain which occured that night. “When I saw the couples walk onto the field I couldn’t believe they went through it as scheduled. I thought they would have crowned the queen during the dance — it would have been much better and wiser. “We didn’t even hear who won because there was no microphone due to the weather. Russ Bollhorst had to shout the queen’s name from the center of the field!” commented frosh senator Mark Noldin. Following the game, students attended a dance in honor of the queen, senior Karen Dauksza. “Raven” entertained the crowd with choice rock music. To graduating seniors, the cancellation of the parade, vandalism in sections of Hessville, and the spoiling rain may have sadly disappointed the upperclassmen in their last year. The freshmen may wonder what a Homecoming parade is because this year’s had been eliminated. The residents of the surrounding area of Morton may have resentments toward many students. Was this just another Homecoming? With a sigh of relief, Student Association President Russ Bollhorst pauses after rain- soaked festivities to say, “Thank goodness it’s all over for another year!” Homecoming Court: Alex Vermejan, Debbie Calderon (frosh attendants), Dan Cox, Diana Coots, Karen Dauksza (queen), Larry Hladek, Janet Cunningham, Herbie Goodrich, Natalie Geissendorfer, Jeff Zurawski, Debbie Hendrix, Paul Markovich, Bonnie Ramirez, Jeff Gardner. “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.” Seniors Janet Cunningham and Herbie Goodrich take cover under a helpful umbrella during half-time. 14 — Homecoming Bonnie Ramirez 1977 Homecoming Queen Karen Dauksza, escorted by senior Larry Hladek, stands proudly on the football field after being announced queen by Association President Russ Bollhorst. “ Homecoming — 15 ©momooQ®2 i?a8@s Everything is rising, the cost of gasoline, food, utilities, etc. Even the number of Morton students who attended summer workshops rose this year. Twenty-six students visited various colleges throughout the summer learning new information in many different areas. Students participated in such workshops as the Leadership, Debate, and Journalism Institutes. With batons in hand, twirlers, senior Lynn Carmon, sophomore Pam Marlow, and frosh Diane Vavrek ventured to Smith- Walbridge College. Professional dancers showed them new techniques to help them perform routines with ease. The girls received an ’excellent’ rating.

Tim Guiden received the McHale Scholarship Award of $2,344. “It was really exciting. We were able to work with nationally famous conductors,” stated senior Mary Jameyfield.

After finding it difficult to ask a guy to the annual Turnabout dance, many girls resorted to “feelings” such as this — advertising for a date! Album covers surfacing the walls, a mural of a castle, floating puffy clouds, and mirrored balls causing candle centerpieces to flicker in light, helped present and carry out the theme of the semi-formal, “Grand Illusion,” January 14, 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. “ ‘Grand Illusion’ was really a rough theme — ideas were hard to come by because illusion means nothing physical, it’s just all in the mind,” said junior Katy Egan, Student Association Recorder. Since the Student Association sponsored the yearly dance, there were ample people to participate with decorations and plans. “Freshmen and sophomores decorated the common area, juniors fixed tables with candle centerpieces and decorated the divider walls between the cafeteria and commons, and seniors were put in charge of creating a mural of a castle,” commented senior Dan Cox, Student Association Vice-President. Originally, the date for the dance was December 10. It had to be reset to January 14 because of a conflict in dates — the large auditorium was being used the night of the supposed dance. Comments sounded days after the postponement. “I wonder if Dave and I will still be dating!” “There’s a different guy I want to ask.” “I don’t want to go anymore.” “I spent my money buying Christmas presents!” WANTED: Any job for a female (to replenish spendings from the annual Turnabout dance held on Saturday January 14, 1978! ‘Freshening up” between dances enables sophs Jessica Aguilera and Linda Galka to look their best for picture taking. As they enter the dance, juniors Donna Smith and Dwayne Patlyek tunnel through a “Grand Illusion.” “Ow!” You stepped on my toe.” Sophs John Dragomer and Brenda Edwards experience difficulty while trying to master a new disco dance step. A lover’s quarrel? Juniors Kathy Chance and Kevin Powers disagree whether to dance or not. Many couples chose to listen to and just enjoy the music instead. Couples have their individual mode of dancing just like each separate personality as they rock to “Stayin’ Alive.” Slow music provides senior Stella Fritz and her date, senior Lisa Edwards and alumnus Tom Werkowski a change of pace from dancing to rock all night. Winter Formal — 19 Following a new trend set last year, senior Darryl Simko became the third male winner since 1965 of the Daughters of the American Revolution Citizenship Award. Chosen by staff members, Darryl had to have a good knowledge of American History and Government to qualify to receive the award. He also wrote an essay describing his patriotism to our Government. The ability to logically solve problems, correctly answer verbal questions, and comprehend what was read ... seniors Mick Maslar and Craig Warner found such requirements facing them as they took the National Merit Scholarship Program Test. Both seniors competed among 15,000 entries to become Semi-Finalists. By representing Morton this year in the All-State Choir, senior Pat Nadon and junior Darrell Barnes displayed their singing ability. “It was a great honor for me to be chosen for the All-State Choir. At first I couldn’t believe I made it. Knowing that I was one of many who wanted to be picked made me proud,” stated Darrell. Upholding high academic standards set at Morton, senior Tim Guiden received the opportunity to attend Boy’s State during the summer. While there, he was honored with the McHale Scholarship Award for $2,344. Taking a sentimental journey, All- State Choir members, senior Pat Nadon and junior Darrell Barnes reflect back on the tunes that won the competition. Quenching his thirst for knowledge, senior Tim Guiden, winner of the McHale Scholarship Award thinks back to yesteryear. Awards — 21 i t .BingCrosby...

Coming out as one of the nation’s most popular teenage singing idols, Shaun Cassidy of “The Hardy Boys” television series, hit the top of the rock charts with the songs “Da Doo Ron Ron” and “Hey, Deanie.” Other music sensations ranking in pop charts included UFO, “Short People,” Andy Gibb, Foreigner, and an album “Rumors” by the incomparable group, Fleetwood Mac. Guy Lombardo... Freddie 22 — National Kath...Groucho Marx ...C4 Death, orange juice, homosexuality and “suds” titled 1977-1978 as each found its place in newspaper head lines. Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, Groucho Marx, Charlie Chaplin, and Guy Lombardo — a few of the famous entertainers whose lives ended and careers vanished in ’77-’78. Their deaths aroused nationwide sadness and marked an end to an era of top notch entertaining personalities. The ‘Crooner’, actor-singer Bing Crosby, enriched American life with his own special singing style in perfecting “White Christmas.” He also appeared with actor Bob Hope in many “road” pictures and specials. Elvis “the Pelvis” Presley initiated a unique variation of American music to the world — rock ’n roll as he made famous such songs as “Hound Dog,”, “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Frankie and Johnnie.” Dark-rimmed glasses, a thick mustache and a dangling cigar symbolized Groucho Marx of the former Marx Brothers, and game-show host of “You Bet Your Life.” Silent movies founded the ever- expanding film industry of today. Comedy actor, Charlie Chaplin contributed to the introduction and popularity of “the movies.” “Auld Lang Syne” lacked the traditional direction of Guy Lombardo on New Year’s Eve as he did not appear for the annual event with his Royal Canadian orchestra. Along with these celebrities, an entire college basketball team lost their lives in the University of Evansville plane crash. An area member of the squad, freshman Ray Commendella of Munster was on the plane and killed. Orange juice promoter Anita Bryant came close to bidding the Florida Orange Bird farewell because of her protest against homosexuality. Individuals supporting gay rights boycotted orange juice and Anita’s performances. She came close to losing her job. Although her views attracted many foes, readers of “Good Housekeeping” magazine managed to dub her the title of “Woman of the Year.” “Soap”, a new controversial television ‘soap opera’ managed to capture high ratings even though a substantial amount of people disliked it because of the subject matter — murder, homosexuality, and sex. Other rookie television series and celebrities highlighted the year by appearing in homes across the nation on the ‘tube.’ They included “Class of ’65,” “Eight is Enough,” “Fantasy Island,” Cheryl Ladd, Suzanne Sommers, and Jack Ritter. Artoo-Detoo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia emerged as familiar well-known figures due to the success of the motion picture “Star Wars.” The Sci-fi adventure began as an instant hit and soared to top the all-time ticket sale list. Popular movies of the past year included a visit to Earth from another planet in “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” John Travolta reigned as ‘Disco king,’ dancing to the music of the Bee Gees, in “Saturday Night Fever.” Wars from the sky and screen came down to Earth in real life for a war of words. President Anwar Sadat of Egypt announced his attempt at a plan for peace in the Middle East. The peace talks were momentarily halted because of a border disagreement between Egypt and Israel. The U.S. and President Carter joined in the encouragement for peace. A radioactive Soviet satellite, that developed friction between Canada and Russia, fell to Earth and landed in a desolate region in Canada. After being found, scientists studied parts and found some to be highly radioactive.

Flurries fluttered lightly through the air. The wind increased causing the accumulating snow to drift. The start of the ‘Blizzard of 78.’ Within a few hours on January 26, the Midwest became buried in snow. Roads, businesses, and schools closed. Dr. Otis Bowen, governor, declared Indiana a ‘state of emergency.’ Does this sound too familiar? Eleven years ago to the day, Midwest residents had experienced a similar snowfall. Businesses and schools were closed. Transportation was halted. “When I woke up and saw the snow, I didn’t think too much of it. Just flurries, but as the day went on and so did the snow, I asked myself why was I living here and not in Florida,” stated one local resident. Any trip outside, even if only to empty the garbage, proved to be an adventure. Drifts as high as four feet made passage almost impossible. Continuous snowfall prevented plows from keeping main streets clear. Side SHUT roads remained treacherous. New Hampshire Avenue in Hessville was completely covered by a large drift, making it impassable. Residents were stranded inside for an entire day until a plow could clear the street. Those who went to work on the morning of January 26 thinking the snowfall was only temporary, themselves in a dangerous situation. As the day and the snow progressed, travel worsened. Returning home for many included many hours spent trying to drive through the snow. Some Midwest residents who tried to escape from the blizzard failed. Chicago’s O’Hare Airport closed down for only the third time in its history.Most trains and buses stopped running. One Amtrak train became caught in a 17 foot drift forcing its passengers and crew to remain inside the train until they could be evacuated. All schools and most businesses locally were closed down because of the snow. Morton students received ■£ (S only one “free day” from school. When the blizzard hit, semester break was taking place. One extra vacation day was added so staff members could catch up on work missed during the snow. Millworkers already at work when the snow hit were urged to remain at work instead of trying to make it home. ‘Through rain or snow or sleet or hail ... ’ but not through a blizzard. All postal service was delayed during the snow. After the snow ended, postmen found it difficult to deliver the mail through the many unshoveled sidewalks. Traveling was not only dangerous but sometimes illegal. Some city police placed a curfew as t o when one could drive. Merrillville prohibited any traveling except for emergencies. Tickets were being issued to any unauthorized vehicles on the roads for two days. The East Coast was struck by the snow much worse than the Midwest. New York experienced its worst blizzard since 1888. Winds up to 36 mph created large drifts and a chill factor below zero. Roads and businesses were completely shut down. The New York Stock Exchange closed its door for the first time ever. This year the snow, last year the cold. Below zero weather prevailed in the winter of 1976-77 for more than 40 days. Through this cold period, Midwest residents experienced a taste of Arctic life. The ‘Freeze of 77’ and the ‘Blizzard of 78.’ Freak happenings? Maybe not, the National Weather Bureau says that this type of weather is normal. We have previously experienced unusually mild winters for the Midwest. A blizzard hit the Midwest in 1967 closing schools and businesses. Heavy snow hit again eleven years later causing extensive damage. Will it happen in another eleven years?

Wicker Park Clubhouse, the promsite, was transformed into Broadway. Two spotlights lit the way as guests handed theater-styled tickets to the doorman. Inside, round tables seating four to five couples surrounded the wooden dance floor. “Charley Aul,” a six to eight piece orchestra entertained the guests until 10:30. “Jets,” a rock band, picked up after dinner and continued playing faster music until leaving time at 2 a.m. Following the clubhouse’s policy banning hanging decorations, stand- up centerpieces and lights added the final touches to the “Broadway” theme. “We chose the theme ‘Broadway’ after many long hours of thinking,” stated junior class president Nancy Szydlowski. “We thought it would be fun for the students to see what Broadway was really like since most of us will never be able to go there ourselves.” To fund the annual prom, juniors held dances and sold Valentine carnations. The class of ’79 set a new fund raising record this year by collecting $4200. After the spotlights went dim and the music was silenced, couples ventured to various places for “day- after-the- Prom” fun. Turkey Run, Great America, and Pokagon were some places visited by students. “The Prom was really special for me. The place it was held was beautiful outside as well as inside,” stated senior Becky Gardner. Who said slow dancing was a thing of the past? Many students enjoy dancing close together to “Color My World”as well as dancing to fast music. Dancing the last dance of the night with her date enabled junior Katy Egan to recall the good time she had at the Prom. Prom — 27 As he instructs Amahl’s mother (Stephanie Oberc) to adjust Amahl’s (Sandi Jameyfield) hat, Mr. Donn Edwards, director, prepares for the next scene. Because he gave his crutch to Melchior (Darrell Barnes) as a gift to the Christ child, Amahl (Sandi Jameyfield) no longer is a crippled boy. Three Kings — Pat Nadon, Darrell Barnes, Greg Easton. 28 — Plays What would you do if three kings knocked on your front door in the middle of the night? Amahl, a poor crippled boy in “Amahl and the Night Visitors” tried to convince his mother who wouldn’t believe him until she saw for herself. Performed on December 15, 16, 17, and 18, the Morton Top Hat Theatre production of “Amahl and the Night Visitors” helped set the mood for the holidays, being a superb classic Christmas opera for all. Being one of director Mr. Donn Edwards’ favorite operas, he related, “We decided to give it a try because the voices were available, because it has great musical appeal, and because it is a classic.” Finding a boy soprano to fill the part of Amahl was somewhat of an undertaking. Senior Mary Jameyfield commented, “I suggested my brother, Sandy, a seventh grader at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. He auditioned among Morton and other middle school students and was chosen to portray the young Amahl.” Lead cast of the play consisted of three kings: Balthazar, Greg Easton; Kaspar, Pat Nadon; Melchior, Darrell Barnes; and their devious page, Joe Sancya; Amahl’s mother, Stephanie Oberc,| and Amahl, Sandy Jameyfield. Plays — Fantasy found real’ characterized by the jolliness of the Wanderlustrians and Juan of Evergreen and by the cruelty and meanness of the Grand Bunkleman, the town’s villain whom everyone hated. Some views arose concerning the winter children’s play such as it being similar to television serials. “In a way, the play was sort of like a soap opera. It kept you wondering — will the Princess ever laugh? Will she be forced to marry the Grand Bunkleman or will she marry her true love and live ‘happily ever after?’ ” remarked student director senior Greg Blanton.

It includes subjects which can be found in real life — like a bad guy and a good guy,” commented Wanderlustrian senior Georgina Swanson.

Basketweaving I and II b. Speech and English c. Fencing (picket and chain link) Answer: b. Speech and English With the development of new technological advances in recent years came the need for a different system of education. Students must now learn to live in and cope with a very complex world. Morton’s administration realized this need. Through the years, new classes have been adopted as part of the curriculum. One course has been recently added to the Morton High curriculum to help students improve their reading ability. Reading Skills, taught by Mr. Glen Bacus, shows students new methods of reading such as use of a pacer to increase reading comprehension and speed. A new class, Decision Making, was developed this year. Taught by Mrs. Marsha Weiss and Mrs. Nancy Sullivan, counselors, it aids the Governors in making the correct decisions affecting their future. Morton’s academic program has grown in many various directions. Courses now being offered try to present a different and interesting outlook on required subjects. The opportunity to observe the behavior of animals is given to Governors through the newly started Animal Behavior class. Students try to predict the animals’ reactions to a given condition and then run experiments to prove or disprove their predictions. 9®m 32 — Academics YCC enlivens Govs 9 lazy summer days 6:30 — Stupid alarm clock!

Remember Dr. Mary Pettersen, Mrs. Barbara Griffin, Mr. Michael Damiano, along with Mr. Bob Weiss telling you to be there and ready to work by 7:30? This might’ve been a typical day in the lives of 24 Morton students, who, along with 12 other students from area schools, participated in a program to beautify the school grounds. The YCC program was created through a $35,000 grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior. In addition to the YCC program, summer school classes continued to attract students who wished to get rid of necessary requirements. Popular classes consisted of drivers’ education, personal typing, and health and saf ety. See what a difference in beauty a tiny seed can make? Dr. Pettersen explains YCC project to Dr. W.W. Becker and senior Chris Pauer. Gloves, hard hat, shovel, wheelbarrow and new top soil come in handy for seniors Mick Maslar and Don Brumfield while planting grass seed and reviving the school grounds. Drivers Education class provides road experience in traffic conditions while classroom study uses the depth perceptor to test visual judgement. 34 — Summer School Summer School Reflections show artistic ability Have you ever closely studied your facial features in a mirror? Some people may think that you’re a little crazy. But by seriously studying distinct features, art students captured their unique features with a couple strokes of a pencil. The ability to draw, paint and to sculpt are talents that have to be worked on until perfection results. To get acquainted with the elements of art and learn some of its background is the major subject matter in Art 1. After learning about lines, shapes, and color values, etc., Art 3 and 4 students begin drawing, then onward to painting in Art 5. By using watercolors or acrylics a masterpiece can be created. Finally, one of the goals of the art student arrives — sculpting. Using their vivid imaginations, the students’ sculptures portray people or other objects. Letter layout and design are also taught in Art 8. German class visits Konditorei Lutz Can you imagine sitting in the audience, minding your own business, and then suddenly being called upon stage to perform with German dancers? This doesn’t occur to everyone, but it did happen to sophomore Ron Salach and senior Phil Kizziah when they visited the National Theater of the Performing Arts, Ltd with the German Classes. It’s not everyday you go to German Town and eat at ethnic restaurants or shop in German stores. Or what about eating all those goodies at the Konditorei Lutz Continental Pastry shop? “It was fun and we got to see a lot of things,” sta ted senior Sharon Gillespie. Something a little different happened in the Spanish classes this year. For the past three years Spanish students traveled to Purdue Being old is not all fun and games as senior Patty Buitron portrays an elderly lady during her Spanish skit. University in Lafayette, Indiana for one day to present their skits and pinatas in the annual Convention of Spanish Clubs and Classes. Each year they’ve captured the title of first place. This year’s trip was unusual because students stayed overnight in the dorms. “A Star is Born” — well not really, but many French students were able to discover their acting abilities through the video taped movies recorded this year. Many students showed their creativity by putting on puppet shows. It’s not often that you hear Bert and Ernie of Sesame Street speak French. To top the whole year off the advanced students from each foreign language class prepared a program for Christmas. Food from each of the nationalities was offered along with entertainment. With a little help from freshmen Dennis Cashen and Derissa Long, freshman David McNash performs a puppet show in French. Surprised by the high prices and items in a German catalog are freshman Ed Gidcumb, sophomores Rich Nallenweg and Mike Fleming. Foreign Language — 37 With the helping hand of Mr. Nels Kompier, student teacher, juniors Greg Brandner and Randy Shrock are able to study atomic structure. A little turn of a bolt enables seniors Mick Maslar and Phil Kowalski to time the swing of a pendulum more accurately during physics class. 38 — Science Have you noticed any peculiar odors in the halls lately? If so, you might wonder where they’re coming from. At first you’d think that maybe the cafeteria cooks burned your lunch today and you’ll probably wind up eating at Mac’s again or else the “air pollution” problem is really getting out of hand. But believe it or not, the “scent” is coming from the science rooms. Perhaps some great scientist, namely “Doctor Jekyll,” concocted up a great formula during chemistry class. By just adding the compound ironsulfide to hydrocloric acid we come up with one of our every day smells — rotten eggs. If that’s not enough, what about learning all those elements or perhaps solving a problem using the metric system. But the “best part” of chemistry, is going to the Hammond Water and Sanitation Departments. “Let’s not get too carried away with that scalpel!” warned the biology teacher to one of his eager students performing the dissection of his frog. In addition to dissection, students studied cells from prepared slides under the microscope. Later, students learned to dye slides of their own by using the tissues of leaves. Many of the biology classes ventured off to the Indiana Dunes where they collected samples of soil, water, and animal life for future studies. Studying by taking field trips is a great factor in physics. Trips to the Museum of Science and Industry enabled students to see the surge demonstration. Some of the physics students, along with some chemistry students, ventured to the University of Chicago’s open house. After seeing a laser demonstration, the students were able to help the Physics Club construct a laser gun. Can you imagine carrying a waterballoon around with you for a weekend and treating it like a baby? This is one of the experiments the psychology classes performed while trying to get students to realize the responsibility of parenthood. Other science courses offered are earth science, zoology, animal behavior, and botany. Science — 3 Messiness doesn’t seem to plague senior Chris Companiott as he carefully tries not to miss a drop while under the watchful eyes of seniors Brendan McCormick, Joe Sliwa, and Rick Sharpe. Little girls with curls and rough little boys with their cars and trucks add something special to child development class which makes junior Kim Ford smile as she observes them. Looks good, eh? Scrambled eggs his main specialty, senior Jack Downing dishes out a loving spoonful for fellow kitchen members in single survival. 40 — Home Ec. Kiddies invade Governor domain What was that? I knew freshmen came small, but isn’t that pushing it just a bit? Here and there preschool kids could be seen walking up and down the halls on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. No, Morton doesn’t have a nursery school program. The youngsters are here to participate in child development class. Here their behavior is observed, which helps students to learn more about child care by creating a realistic atmosphere. In December the little ones were treated to a Christmas party complete with games for them to participate in. Traditionally thought of as an all-male class, single survival students were invaded by their female counterparts in larger numbers this year than in the past. Mastering the art of sewing on buttons and tying neckties caused anxiety for the guys but laughter for the giris. Baking cookies and preparing for their annual Thanksgiving dinner kept the foods classes busy while stitching and altering various pieces of clothing occupied clothing students’ time throughout the school year. What to choose next seems to boggle the minds of Assistant Principal Joseph Gartner, junior Dana Molodet and senior Gayle Fross while filling their plates from the turkey dinner prepared by foods classes. Hemlines seem to go up and down as fashion trends come and go. Senior Kara Mahan enlists the aid of junior Marilyn Lee in pinning hers up so that it’s right up to date with the current style. Home Ec. — 41 Dull English classes ‘Gone with the Wind’ Conjunctions, pronouns, gerund phrases, prepositions, clauses . .. Looks thrilling, right? Bet you just can’t wait to get to class and listen to that invigorating voice of your teacher lull you to sleep ... All that is past now, agreed? With the wide variety of English courses offered here, you can be as picky as you choose and still come up with the one class that’s really you, whether it be creative writing for the Hemingway in you, or drama, you know how you just madly adore Humphrey Bogart! Have you ever thoroughly examined the details of your favorite red toothbrush? Some advanced composition students have. Have you ever daydreamed the day away over the romantic adventures of Romeo and Juliet? Some English literature students have. Have you ever found yourself in . another time and place pondering over the avenging world of The Count of Monte Cristo? Some world literature students have. And the list continues . .. But what of the aspiring actors and actresses? If you’re one of these, dying to get into showbusiness, then one of the classes which might catch your eye would be drama. After all, you never know when imitating a spoon might come in handy! Later on, after you’ve captured the style of Farrah Fawcett or Mark Hamill, you’re ready to display your newly learned talents. Onto mass media. After all, that’s where they make the movies, right? Now, see. The English curriculum has a lot to offer. It can please even the pickiest person. Viewing last year’s homemade movie excerpts Showing not the least bit of shyness is gives some ideas to senior Karen Brilmyer junior Dave Smith as he explains the basic and junior Mark Gordon in mass media. concepts of jogging in speech class. 42 — English English classes don ’t have to be all just sitting and writing. Here junior Robin Payne readies herself by adjusting her head phone set in reading skills. What famous person died this week? Which city held a mayoral primary? The answers to these and other questions boggle the mind of junior Gary Adzia as he prepares for his weekly journalism news quiz. Envious of Peter Rabbit, freshman Mark Noldin imitates the Easter Bunny during drama class by wrinkling up his nose and hopping about. English — 43 Composing music baffles students Is this the way Marvin Hamlisch started out? Will I be able to compose music myself? The answers to these and other questions may lie in Mrs. Glenda Kolar’s sixth hour Music Theory class. Notation of pitch, note and rest values, time classification, along with time signatures all faced the music-minded students who chose to enroll in the class. Careful blending of the key elements such as intervals, modal scales, major and minor scales, triads, and key signatures proved helpful to class members when confronted with the assignment of converting a sheet of piano music into a band arrangement. After completing this, semester requirements were fulfilled. Sour notes, courtesy of senior Greg Easton, cause junior Nancy Render and senior Danielle Paulich to offer the suggestion of “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” (and again, and again, ...) With optimistic hopes of one day being able to write music herself, junior Pam Casper gets experience by reading music aloud in class. 44 — Music Theory General-vs-ColIege: New math trends? If (a,b) and (c,d) denote complex numbers, then (a,b) (c,d) = (ac-bd, ad + bc); that is, (a + bi) (c + di) = (ac-bd) + (ad + bc)i ... Confusing? If you’re one of the few seniors enrolled in Analysis II, it might seem mind-boggling, maybe even interesting. But if you’re not, the sight of it might be all that’s needed to discourage you from ever again signing up for another math class. Are college math courses the trend at Morton? According to some MHS math teachers, students tend to sign up for more general math classes than the college prep courses: algebra, geometry, and analysis. Mathematics teacher Mr. Randy Starewicz feels that the students aren’t taking the harder courses because their parents haven’t been encouraging college. Even though students may be taking the easy way out, some still are interested and curious to try their hand at the harder courses. Advanced algebra teacher Mr. Joseph Depeugh comments, “Sometimes you have a group that’s exceptional while the next is not so good. It’s a normal cycle.” To understand how planes can be tangent to spheres, sophomore Ed Kielbasa demonstrates by using cardboard and a tennis ball. Math induction poses problems for senior Jeff Zurawski as he pays close attention while senior Gary Balas explains its concepts. When in doubt, sophomores Sandy Hlad and Dawn Bach exchange helpful hints about geometric theorems, axioms, and corrolaries. Econ students receive $10 grand If you earned $10,000 a year, do you know how you’d spend it? One homework assignment in Mrs. Jane Hall’s economic’s class set this figure as the maximum amount earned in one year’s time. Students budgeted their money, planning the amount to be spent on various necessities, such as rent, car payments, food, clothing costs, utility bills and entertainment. Econ students also studied the stock market to get a better understanding of the business world. They were able to buy and sell imaginary stock, and keep track of its fluctuation on Wall Street. Government students began the school year with a study of the Constitution of the United States. Questions about citizens’ rights probed many students’ minds while discussing the Constitution. “Since we live in a democracy we ought to know about the framework of our government. It’s ironic because the founding fathers formed the Constitution for their time and now it’s over 200 years old and it still applies today,” stated Mr. Jerry Woodward, government teacher. Founding fathers wasn’t the only topic studied by students. World and U.S. history classes consisted of various aspects. Assignments included exhibits describing different periods of time. Filmstrips, movies, records and lectures helped students learn a little more about the past. With little time left to complete questions about current events, senior Peter Wick searches for answers in the newspaper in contemporary problems. Social Studies — 47 B-e-s-n-e-s: many different forms K-a-t-l-o-gay, for-gay-e-v, t-r-e-men-d-oo-s, p-r-e-l-e-men-re. You’ve heard of different languages before haven ’t you? Well, this isn’t a different language; it’s just a different way of writing words. With the use of brief symbols, shorthand makes notemaking a breeze! A little writing practice each day enables students to finally be able to read their class notes. Can you imagine typing a complete assignment and feeling so proud that you finished it before the bell rang and then realizing that your fingers were on the wrong key? In the beginning of the semester some typing students wished they had eyes in their fingers so they could see what they were typing when they were not supposed to be looking. But by the end of the semester some people think that miracles are possible, since they’ve reached their goal of 50 words per minute. For those money-minded students bookkeeping is the answer. To be able to handle money matters and balance books is a main goal for the bookkeeper. Have you ever wanted to find a way out of mentally adding columns of numbers? With the ease of pushing buttons on the adding machine this dream comes true. By using the different business machines students are able to adjust to an office like atmosphere. Speed minus mistakes: that’s what senior Kris Johnson seems to be working towards as she concentrates on improving her typing. Typing while listening can result in confusion. Senior Sue Fozkos perfects this skill by using the transcribing machine. To concentrate on reducing mistakes on a typing assignment, junior Donna Kerr blocks out all distractions and wandering thoughts. Columns and columns of numbers can be confusing as senior Wendy Lockridge receives help from Mr. Donald Moretton during clerical practice. What is junior Cindy Deal working on, Japanese or Chinese? It’s neither of the two. It’s the English language but in a different form — shorthand. Business — 49 50 — Gym Ready ... Set ... Hut! Basic fundamentals of football clouded the minds of boys’ gym class members. Proper procedures taught consisted of passing, centering, and ball handling. Teachers also instructed students in the how-to’s of blocking, pass patterns plus defense with the blitz versus offense with the ball. While some took part in the sport of football, the other boys’ class could be found in the pool. Starting out in the beginners’ group, students were encouraged to strive all the way until they reached the ultimate gym swimmer’s goal: the title of a swimmer. While the boys were proving their masculinity on the field and With deep concentration on smashing the ball, sophomore Andrea Macewicz finds success in selecting the side arm swing. 1 _ in the pool, the girls could be either found on the tennis courts or in the gym playing soccer. With goalies at either end of the ‘field’, rules allowed the soccer players to use any part of their body except their hands to get the ball past the opposing team’s goalie and score. The only time they could use their hands was after the ball ventured out of bounds and had to be thrown back in. Love — 15; 15-30; 15-40; 30-40; deuce; 45-40, game! The Billie Jean Kings and the Chris Everts of the gym classes gathered daily on the tennis courts to learn the primary techniques of tennis. Later a doubles tournament was held, enabling the girls to exhibit their talents. Other prominent sports taught included basketball, gymnastics, volleyball, badminton, softball, golf, and bowling. Shop classes attract creators CAUTION: Beware of wood shavings flying through the air (without the greatest of ease), spark showers, and electric volts that may give you a real charge. Some people may wonder exactly what goes on behind those closed doors down by the shop classes. Are they busy creating a Frankenstein, with the help of his ever faithful assistant, Igor? Or perhaps his bride? Or, even better yet, are they doing a ‘turnabout’ and making wooden soldiers instead of the usual run-of-the-mill tin ones? Whatever it may be, someone in the shop classes is just as sure as good Ole St. Nick to be able to grant your wish, whether what you want needs to be bolted together, shocked to life, or else intricately ' carved. You know how you’ve just been dying to tune up your shiny new high-style ‘54 Chevy. No time (plus you’re not quite sure how to do it). Maybe a power mechanics class could show you how it’s done. Lately your stereo’s been blaring out funny snorting sounds. Remember how your friendly neighborhood mechanic offered to fix it (for his usual ‘small’ charge)? Maybe if you took a couple of electronics courses, you could repair it yourself and save $$$. And, this you had better not forget. Remember how Mom hinted about that end table that she wants for her birthday? If you sign up for woods now, maybe by this time next year you can make it for her (and end up saving yourself some money). Time and money ... what everyone’s worrying about saving these days. Enjoyment and relaxation . . . what everyone doesn’t have enough time for nowadays. But why worry about trivial things like that? Just be like the tin soldiers and Frankenstein and worry about looking good, right? Knobs of assorted sizes and shapes confront junior Mike Sapyta and senior Richard Bass as they turn and experiment with each one, trying to decide the best one in electronics. Distinctly pointing out parts, Mr. Cliff Snow helps junior Tammy Bradley learn how motors work during a power mechanics class. Precision is the key to success. Making sure his measurements are accurate, senior Julian Chavez cuts a necessary piece for his structure in woodshop.

Industrial Arts — 53 “Just time left for one more drag.” Outside seems to be the right place for those students who need one puff more before class. Vandalism: an ex While strolling down one of Morton’s glamorous hallways, thinking about the undone homework and the test you bombed last hour, you suddenly decide to slip into one of the nearby johns to comb your hair. You choke slightly as you near the bathroom’s entrance; however, by the time you’re completely inside, you’re ferociously gagging. But from what? Need the question even be asked? As you cautiously slither through the smoke to locate the mirror, you catch a glance of it, but notice that in order to see your reflection, you practically have to smash your nose up to the glass. Then, when you finally do get close enough, there’s so much garbage smeared on the mirror that no matter how hard you try, you can’t see your face anyway. Classes begin and faculty members go to investigate the damage done in that five-minute time lapse. Knowing that it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes with his ever-faithful assistant, Doctor Watson, to crack the mysterious case of smogged johns that nobody seems to care about, teachers become more wary than before of who and how many people enter the ‘scene of the crime’ and when they do so. After that happens you hear, “Are there any teachers in here?” before half a dozen smokers crowd into one of the stalls and light up. Day in and day out, washrooms and classrooms along with other parts of the school are vandalized, and it stretches anywhere from a Vandalism Essay r © • tp4 — u a Ira curri simple scribbling on a wall to a broken window or a severely stopped up toilet. Vandalism doesn’t have to be defined; it’s all so obvious; it’s everywhere one looks. But some things that people don’t take into consideration are the reasons for it and what it costs the taxpayer — you and me — every year. Around the beginning of the school year some students decided to trot across town and decorate a rival team’s football field the night before the game. Sure, they probably had a great time painting the press box and goal posts and redecorating the field. What they didn’t take into consideration was what their little endeavor would cost. They had no idea that the bill would total somewhere over $3000! But that’s just the beginning. Replacing broken windows ($2.25 per sq. ft.); ceilings $1.89 for an 18’ : x 32” piece); and exit signs ($22.50 each) can run into $$$$$. Why do students do it? Reasons vary from peer pressure, revenge at a teacher, to home life. Assistant principal Mr. Joseph Gartner believes that a cause may be found in “parents closing their eyes to the kids and pretending they’re unaware of the situation.” Among the offered solutions, one top Hammond school city employee feels help may be found with better family situations, stronger courts, teacher initiation, student monitoring, and tougher administrators. Whatever the answer may be there is no denying the fact that a reliable and workable solution must quickly be found. Vandalism Essay — 55 § a© m 0C3 Who was the leading scorer in football during 1953? a. Mike Ventrella b. Homer Frump c. Idonno Whosit Answer: a. Mike Ventrella Learning to work together with fellow teammates, struggling through many long hard hours of practice, fighting to achieve a desired victory, accepting the letdown of defeat. Through participation in sports, athletes grow not only in their ability to perform successfully in their sport but also in their acceptance of working for what they want — a victory. Athletes learn through very long and numerous practices that reaching a certain goal requires much hard work. Swimmers must rise early to make the before¬ school practices. Football players begin their hard training a month before school is in session. Other extracurricular activities must sometimes be missed so athletes can work at improving their skill. Good sportmanship — an important trait an athlete must possess. When a team experiences defeat, the players handle the disappointment by realizing their mistakes and correcting them for future contests. The victorious team accepts the win with pride and hopes for a continuing successful season. Growth through sports is evident in many various ways. Athletes learn to handle the agony of defeat and the joy of victory in a mature way while struggling for a desired goal. 56 — Sports Strength, endurance, and loyalty to a struggling teammate, provide inner motives for tight-end Darryl Simko to block out the Noll opponent and help a fellow Governor gain extra yardage. Successfully clutching a perfect pass, senior running back Rich Kilar easily displays the coordination and timing required to become a Morton receiver. As he hurriedly attempts to take advantage of an opening left by Gavit defenders, senior running back Dale Snyder moves the Governors farther into Gavit territory.

Roosevelt Morton 20 0 21 0 14 20 14 7 6 31 0 21 13 7 7 6 0 35 14 points hold Govs from title! What do you suppose football players talk about after the season? Let’s evesdrop on three players . . . “I think that our two stalled drives early in the first two games against Munster (20-0) and Michigan City (21-0) were probably the turning points of the whole season,” commented Kevin Polkinghorn. “Sure, even through the latter part of the season we had trouble scoring when we got down close, and it came back to haunt us in most of our loses,” added Gary Balas. “In the Gavit game, we should’ve had them down big at the end of the first half, where we led (7-0), but again we didn’t capitalize on a golden opportunity,” expressed Darryl Simko. “Yea, well we had to put out everything we had into the last two minutes to get the winning touchdown and beat them (20-14),” answered Gary. “That Hammond High game went by so fast that when I looked up at the clock, we lost (14-7), even though both teams were evenly matched,” Kevin exclaimed. “Hey, Kevin, Gary, don’t you guys think that the games against Tech (21-0) and E.C. Washington (31-6) were our most satisfying victories, especially since we played Tech on Homecoming?” Darryl asked. “I agree, and Clark’s game was the most disappointing defeat in my three years of playing on the Varsity Football Team. Worse than the Bishop Noll game in my sophomore year,” responded Gary. “I still don’t believe we lost that game. I must’ve replayed the last 1:40 seconds in my head at least a thousand times, but that’s football. We were leading 7-6; we thought we had them, until they scored that last touchdown and won the game (13-7),” Darryl agreed. “We lost all three conference games by a total of only 14 points, and with a few breaks our way, we could’ve been conference champs,” Kevin said. “We dominated against Noll, but when the big play came, we came up short,” commented Gary. “The record doesn’t show what kind of team we really were. We had a lot of quality players out there, but when we needed a big play, we seldom got it. In the past couple of years, our winning teams got the big plays and that’s the difference between those teams and this one,” explained Gary. “All the seniors on the team did a good job, along with the juniors and sophomores. I hope we taught them enough leadership to have good teams in the future,” stated Kevin. “I like to be a little more philosophical when I think about football at Morton. I’ll always remember my four years of football here at Morton, especially the last two years under Coach Luketic and Coach Georgas, since we won LSC in our ’76 season,” concluded Darryl.

This is something you would hear if you were on the B- team or freshman football teams. But this was heard more on the freshman team than on the B- team. Why? Is playing only three out of nine games a good reason? Morton’s B-team coach Mr. Bob Hunt explains, “Six games were canceled; out of these six, four were called off because the other schools involved didn’t have enough players to fill the team.” Another reason is lack of participation. “Not enough kids went out for B-team. Munster has two B-teams; we were lucky to have one, but the team did put out a good effort,” stated junior Brad Bobowski. “Problems of schools not having people going out for football has happened before, but it’s never been this serious. The LSC athletic board has been trying to think of a solution to this problem. So far we have two: one, start a sophomore league, since sophomores complain that they don’t play enough; and two, start combining the freshman and B-team to create a frosh-soph league, but if they did this there would only be two teams per school,” stated Mr. Walt Viellieu, Lake Shore Conference Athletic Director. Winning five games and losing two, the freshman football team proved its ability as a team. Highlights from some of the games include: Morton’s defense stopped Bishop Noll twice inside the 10-yard line; Tony Gresham completed a 74-yard run against Clark; and Jeff Schneider passed to ECW enabling Morton to score three touchdowns and win another game. A promising player, Larry Kielman, played both offense and defense and gave Hammond High’s running backs a hard time. Frosh Football — Front Row: Jeff Juscik, Cliff Biewinga.

Freshman Football — 63 64 — Powderpuff “Better luck next year,” senior Darryl Simko expresses happily to junior Brad Bobowski as junior Joe Walters refuses to accept Darryl’s condolences about the senior victory. Before game time junior center Alison Soto practices some snaps with junior quarterback Linda Christman in order to achieve perfection for the game. This year was no different than any other [ as the seniors demolished the juniors 22-12 ip the annual powder puff game. However, there was one exception: the seniors used passing , in their offense to score. Seniors lead by quarterback Ruth Drake pulled some surprising tactics on the juniors, driving for 52 yards with some great running from fullback Mary McCree and excellent blocking from the offensive line. The seniors were able to score their first touchdown on a quarterback sneak. Not expecting a pass, the seniors scored the extra points with a pass from Drake to senior Renee Polochak. Not letting it bother them, the juniors score their first touchdown on a double-reverse play. Junior Peggy Scott ran 33 yards for the score. With tough senior defense the extra point failed making the score 8-6. Throughout the evening the ball changed hands constantly until the juniors scored their second touchdown on a 20-yard run from Lori Burns pulling ahead of the seniors 12-8. But that was all for the juniors for the rest of the night, as defensive standouts Karen Brilmyer, Pam Fork, JoAnn Stribiak and the rest of the defensive line held the juniors to only two touchdowns all night. For the seniors it was only the beginning as they went ahead and scored two more touchdowns to finish the night off with a 22- 12 victory. Mary McCree, Ruth Drake Who’s got the flag? This is the question asked by senior defensive players Lori Mambourg and Bonnie Ramirez as they express some difficulty in pulling the flag out of a running back’s pocket. Twenty-nine reverse on one, was the play called by senior Ruth Drake while she receives the snap from Janet Cunningham as Carol Stephens and Chris Karalas set up the play. Shotgun! Ready set hut!

Although only practicing, competition runs in their blood as each cross country team member strives to be first. Dave Smith, Jeff Gardner, Frank Herbert and John Lipka push on as the first half of the work-out ends. Cross country caps winning season,7-5 Determination in a young team can be a vital factor and the varsity cross country team proved this with their relative success this season. Morton accumulated an overall record of 7-5 and a conference record of 4-4. The varsity squad had a successful dual season and captured 4th place in the Lake Central Invitational. However, the team faltered slightly as inexperience became apparent when the Morton harriers were forced to settle for 5th in the Conference meet. The green squad consisted of senior Jeff Gardner, juniors Frank Herbert, Dave Smith, Mark Riley, John Lipka, Frank Nevlida and sophomore A1 Frost. Two members of the cross country team splintered school records this year. The varsity record of 12:37 was slashed at Dowling Park this season during a dual match against E.C.W. and Whiting. The record breaking time of 12:30 was recorded by returning letterman Jeff Gardner. He also was named the Most Valuable Player this year. Breaking the junior varsity record was A1 Frost with a recorded time of 12:42. In viewing the upcoming season junior John Lipka revealed, “We are looking forward to next year; we have six varsity members returning and expect a strong team. This season, we improved steadily, but the season took its toll near the end when we received 12th place in sectionals.” Cross Country — 67 Spikers net LSC, sectionals It was only the beginning for the Governors this year as they finished off their ’77 volleyball season 24-5. Their only defeats came against Munster and Portage. Morton, having one of its best years in volleyball, captured the Lake Shore Conference title with some well-balanced attacks. Some of the higher points of the season occurred whjen the Govs defeated city rival, Gavit, three times, two in regular season play. The third victory for the Govs gave them the right to advance to the finals in sectionals. As for the rest of the teams in the lake Shore Conference, Morton had little trouble in defeating them. One of the Governors’ toughest matches came against Munster who defeated Morton four times throughout the season. The Governors added something new to their season as they participated in a Portage tournament. The spikers went up against some tough, smart playing With hopes of blocking a spike sent over by her opponent, senior Karen Brilmyer has her hands up in defense. volleyball teams in the tournament. Morton came through and finished first in its division. The spikers defeated Portage 12-6, 15-8, in first round play and they went on to defeat McCutcheon 15-9, 11-15, 15-6, and Indianapolis Attucks 15-6, 15-9. Later on that night Morton was eliminated from the tournament by Munster 5-15, 9-15. For the first time Morton captured its first sectional crown by defeating Whiting in the final game 11-9, 15-5. The Govs then advanced to regionals where they finished second out of the regional.

With an overtime victory against Calumet, two overtime losses to Highland and Lake Central, and a two and three point defeat by Griffith and Lew Wallace respectively, the roundballers wound up losing four of their first five opening games. The Governor cagers reached a plateau when the squad, after losing seven out of their first eight games including two in the Holiday Tourney, bounced back with victories over Hobart, Whiting, and arch rival Gavit. Coach Russ Marcinek lead his team to a conference record of 4-4 and a season record of 8-15. “Our record should have been a lot better,” stated junior Greg Brandner. “We lost many close games that could have gone either way. It seemed that the nucleus was there, but we just could not put it together.” Lack of height forced last year’s team to rely on outside shooting and the same problem rested on Coach Marcinek again. What the Govs lacked in height, had to be made up for with finesse and ability. Contributing heavily to the cause this year were seniors Dan Cox and John Fowler. Dan Cox, guard, supported a 17 points per game average and center John Fowler scored at a pace of 11 points per game along with an average of seven rebounds. Sectionals sparked the cagers as they played well and defeated favorites Hammond High and Andrean, but lost i the final match to Gavit by two points.

Despite the loss of sophomores Phil Elo and Darin Bensinger to varsity competition, the B-team went on to an inspiring 11-8 season. Led by sophomore Scott Lush, who scored 20 points or more four times this season, along with junior Mike Murray and soph Roy Perez, the squad’s accomplishments included exciting victories in its opening and final games. The junior varsity team ousted Highland 51-46 in its first game and defeated Munster 52-43 in its final effort. Winning eight out of their first eleven, including four in a row, topped the season as the Govs blazed through the first half. “We started the year off with a bang and kept it going for over half the season, commented sophomore Mark Johnson. The team then suffered a few close losses; however, we still finished with a respectable record.” After victories in its first two conference games against rivals Gavit and Clark, the freshman team lost five of its remaining six games and ended the season with a 3-5 conference record for the “A” team. The overall season record was 6-12. Many of the games that the squad lost were decided by only a few points and those close encounters could have easily been victories according to Freshman Coach Richard Volbrecht. Leading scorers for the “A” team were Jeff Schneider, Tom Miskovich, Randy Cummins, and Rusty Hall. These players also led the team in rebounding. The “A” teams ' most valuable player was Jeff Schneider, and the captain was Tom Miskovich as voted by freshman team members. The Freshman also had a “B” squad which compiled an 8-5 overall record and a perfect 4-0 conference record. They were led in scoring by Aaron Soto, Mike Holper, Bill Aguilera, and Paul Sojka. Holper led the rebounding category. Freshman Basketball Team — Front row: Brian Adams, Dan Churilla, Jeff Oros, manager Oavid McNash, Rob Avenetti, Dennis Greaney.

Girls Basketball — 75 Sarwacinski competes at state What happened when some of last year’s most promising swimmers failed to return to the swim team? Was it all over before it began for the ’77-78 swim team? Jobs and class schedule problems forced some swimmers to drop out from the swim team. “It was a combination of laziness, or what you would call senioritis, and supposedly wanting to get jobs to make money for various reasons. Why a person wants to start working in high school, when he has to do it for the rest of his life is beyond me,” commented Coach Bob Hunt. Inspite of the loss of some of the team members, the tankmen placed third in the Lake Shore Conference, set five new school records, and finished the season with a 7-4 mark. During Conference competition, seniors Scott Wilson, and Dale Snyder and juniors Roger Edwards, and Rob Taylor broke the 200-medley relay record at 1:58.2. Recording the time of 24.1, Edwards set a new 50-yard freestyle record. With the time of 2:14.0 senior Joe Sliwa broke the 200-yard individual medley record, while Wilson recorded the time of 1:00.5 for the 100-yard backstroke. Taylor set the record for the 100-yard breaststroke with the time of 1:07.5. Sectionals brought triumph to Snyder as he set a new school record for the 100-yard butterfly at 59.2, and to the team of Edwards, Sliwa, Snyder and sophomore Scott Tomsic as they broke the 400-yard freestyle relay with the time of 3:34.8. There’s a first time for everything, and for the tankmen, it came when senior A1 Sarwacinski placed first in sectional diving competition.

Problems of an inexperienced and young team were revealed in this year’s varsity wrestling season with only six returning veterans. “Rebuilding seems to be the word used to describe this year,” explained varsity coach Fred Kepler. Winning two of their last six matches, the grapplers consider the match against E.C. Washington their highlight win. Remaining close throughout the match, victory appeared to rest on the shoulders of junior Joe Banasiak. With the score tied, Banasiak went on to pin his opponent and pull Morton through 33-30. The match against Horace Mann provided an easy triumph for the grapplers as they overcame the Horsemen by a 32 point spread. Commenting on the past season, Mr. Kepler stated that the outstanding wrestlers were John Browning, due to his four years experience on varsity, and his becoming a ’77 conference champ, as well as John Davenport for consistency in winning.

Wrong! “Due to various reasons three girls were lost before the season started. This, to a certain extent accounts for our losing season,” stated Mr. Darrell Johnson, varsity tennis coach. However, there were two bright spots during the season. Receiving runner-up honors in the City Tournament was Kathy Barrick. Showing promise were two younger players, sophomores Faith Marcinek and Jessica Aguilera winning several matches in the doubles competition during the season. Other highlights of the season included the victory over Clark with two close individual matches that finally allowed Morton to defeat the Pioneers 4-3, and the commanding defeat of Tech 7-0 “Both Mr. Hruskovich, B-team tennis coach, and I are looking forward to the ’78 season although it will definitely be a rebuilding year since we lost five of seven girls,” concluded Mr. Johnson. 1977 Girls’ Ttennis Statistics Girls Tennis Team — First Row: Janee Babbit, Carmela Abasolo, Kathy Howard, Kathy Collins, Second Row: Faith Marcinek, Angie Henderson, Shelly Gillespie.

More depth and a better attitude appear to be the reasons for an improved ’77 season for the girls track team. “Because we had more people entering each event, our chances of placing in that event were increased,” explained Mary McCree. Two-hour long practices, with full effort put out by the team members aided the cinderwomen to achieve an overall record of five wins, five losses and a tie with Gavit during the Munster-Gavit- Morton triangular meet. Setting impressive records for the Governors in the ’77 season were: McCree in the 220-yard dash at 27.5 and Kathy Young high-jumping at 4’8”. Team efforts which produced positive results were: McCree, Ruth Drake, Cindy Deal, and Karen Szczudlak in the 880-yard relay, with a record of 1:56.0. At 2:04.0 Drake, Deal, Theresa Janskly, and Marilyn Landfald set a new school record in the medley relay.

Senior Jeff Jankowski, along with alumni Malcolm Wickramasekara, Jerry Markovich, and Bill Hood, set new records in their respective events. Breaking the mile record at 4.29 and the two mile record at 9.54, Wickramasekara received honors of CO-MVP. Also receiving the CO-MVP award was Jerry Markovich, who set a record breaking time of 14.8 in the high hurdles and later qualified for the regionals. Other school records were broken by Bill Hood in the indoor shot-put with a throw of 51’1” and Jeff Jankowski’s time of 50.3 in the 440. One of the highlights of the season occurred when the cindermen grabbed 2nd place in the competitive Hammond High School Relays. The Governors also managed to capture 3rd in the Lake Shore Conference. The varsity squad ended the season with a dual record of 8-5 and a composite record of 37-32. “Last season didn’t go as well as we expected, stated senior Shaw Collins. Our outdoor meets were definitely our downfall.” This ’78 season, there were ten returning lettermen, including senior standouts Shaw Collins, Greg Swiercz, Jeff Jankowski, Rich Teran, Julian Chavez and Jeff Gardner who were coupled with many talented under¬ classmen that helped the varsity squad keep on track. 1977 Boys Varsity Track Statistics Opponent Lake Central Rela; L.S.C.

Boys Track — 85 12 overtimes result in City Title Two soccer teammates reminisced about the ’77 season ... “The ’77 season seemed like the hardest earned championship, since I’ve been at Morton. We had ten starters back from the ’76 season which helped us win the fourth consecutive Lake Shore Conference and the Hammond City Tournament titles,” commented Perry Rubino. “Yea, I remember the game against our rival Hammond High, when it almost took us four quarters before Mike Wimmer tallied the only goal in the game (1-0),” explained Mike Prljevic. “Mike, do you realize that in our first five games our defense allowed only one goal, while our offense tallied 19 goals, increasing our record to 5-0,” stated Perry. “Sure, Munster was the only team able to score against us during that time, which occurred on a penalty kick,” agreed Mike. “In the first half of the season we just dominated our opponents. We had sole position in the LSC league,” added Perry. “In the second half of the season we outscored our opponents scoring 19 goals, allowing only five against us and with one hard fought loss,” continued Mike. “Yea, Les Eagan had a bad break against Munster. I thought he had the ball stopped for sure, but then he lost control of the ball resulting in the 2-1 final victory in favor of Munster,” replied Perry. “I thought the previous two games against Hammond High 2-0 and Tech 3-1, were an indication of the terrible outcome against the Mustangs, because of a lack¬ luster offensive performance when we only scored five goals combined,” commented Mike. “We bounced back quite well as we won our next three games in a row, to finish with a 11-1 record in the LSC title. It was fortunate that we had relatively weak opponents in the next coming weeks. We walked over Noll 3-1, Gavit 5-0, and Clark 4-2,” added Perry. “As the tournament neared, Mr. Bob Hunt came out to assist in conditioning drills, which proved vital in the 12 overtimes in the final game against Munster. Despite his tough tactics, the team listened very well and proved to be numero uno,” explained Mike. “Coach Pimentel’s strategic moves in the championship game paid off as when MVP Mark Ramberg was ejected. That left us with only ten players and the coach had to rearrange his entire offense and defense. This match marked a first in Indiana history, as it was the longest game played on record,” stated Perry. “In regulation time, there was a mere five seconds left, when Ron Billings scored to tie the game 1-1. Then after more of an hour of over¬ time play, Randy Segally came through with 12 seconds left in the 12th overtime to score the winning goal and our fourth consecutive cham¬ pionship,” concluded Mike. As proof of the tough s eason, the soccer team lost the services of Darrell Huebner due to two broken legs in competition, and Scott Orich for his dislocated shoulder.

For the ’77 season Delache and Vauter both shot a round of 36 and 80, 81 respectively to give Morton a victory over conference-rival Clark. “The ’78 season looks good if the young members of the team do well for us,” stated Coach Onie Penzato. Also returning for Morton are Mike Vercimak and Dave Doan to lead the Govs. During the ’78 season Morton set goals as to what they would accomplish for the year, such as to take firsts in the Lake Hills Invitational, Conference Tourney, Rensselaer Invitational and to place in Sectionals. One of their biggest goals was to win the Conference and knock out top ranked rival Gavit. Powerful strokes are needed to lessen the distance as Chris Delache begins his drive toward the hole. Striving for a perfect stance and focusing his eyes on the ball, Mike Vercimak tees off at a late afternoon practice session. 88 — Boys Golf With a small bucket of practice golf balls Chris Delache and Lou Vauter prepare to warm up before an important tournament round at Lake Hills. 1977 Golf Team — Front Row: Lou Vauter Chris Delache, Mike Vercimak, Bob Soto, Ed Kielbasa, Nick D’Angelo, Coach Onie Penzato.

Washington 8-4. Morton had a good year all around with Dan Cox leading the batting average with .344; Darryl Simko, .333; and Mike Cowan, .296 to help the Governors finish the year off with a 18-11 record. Some of the highlights occurred when the Governors took on Lake Central and 3 runs were scored on consecutive doubles by Don Starkey, Kevin Polkinghorn and Scott Gyure to give Morton a 4-0 victory. Morton defeated Munster 7-6 when Darryl Simko slammed a homerun over the fence to clinch the game.

The National Honor Society Answer: c. The National Honor Society A new and added meaning to the word ‘school’ can be found through participation in organizations. Governors find enjoyment through involvement in activities. Clubs enable students to take a break from the strain of schoolwork. Hobbies and interests can grow or Legion with the variety of clubs available to the students at Morton. The adventurous student receives an opportunity to try his luck on the slopes by joining the Ski Club. Members journey to nearby ski resorts to enjoy a day in the fresh outdoors. Animal-loving Governors acquire new knowledge through membership in the Zoology Club. Animals are studied both by observation and by running various experiments. Well-liked hobbies, already enjoyed by Morton students, are also a part of organizations. For those who like picture¬ taking, the Photo Club proves to be the right club for them. Belonging to the club enables members to take and compare pictures and experiment with new equipment. Organizations such as the Mixed Choir, Concert Choir, and the Band enable students with musical talent to further improve their skill. Student interests have grown through the years. Morton’s clubs have also grown to provide fun and enjoyment to Governors. 92 — Organizations Top Hat reminisces, celebrates twenty-five years of publication yearbook (yirbook), n. a book published annually, containing information, statistics, etc. about the year. Of course, this is just the basic idea of an annual. Creativity and imagination are added to the foundation to result in a book which expresses the students’ mood for a particular school year. Designing layouts and writing copy involve the majority of time spent towards yearbook production. Captions must explain more than what the picture obviously presents, and a layout must magnetize the readers to it. Inventing interesting group poses also plays an important role. “Although it’s fun, it’s a lot of work. But after all the deadlines are met, you feel a rewarding sense of accomplishment,” commented sports co-editor Amel Maximose. Throughout the year, Top Hat staffers further contributed to the 1978 edition by taking part in yearbook sales and distribution, and by selling advertisements to local businesses. To sum up the changes that occur in twenty-five years, the theme “Growing Up” was chosen. “We decided upon this theme to emphasize Top Hat’s silver anniversary and to point out the difference between the era of the old Morton and the new,” co¬ editors Beth Crowe and Chris Diehl explained. For the first time in four years, Top Hat received the highest yearbook rating possible, All- American, from the National Scholastic Press Association for the 1976 edition. To learn new layout trends, co-editors Beth Crowe and Chris Diehl attended institutes at Culver Military Academy and Indiana University.

They were later identified as members of the Mortonite staff, starting their first issue of their 1977-1978 publication to insure its delivery on the first day of school. Reporters began interviewing news sources and gathering information to be transformed later into stories. Photographers busied themselves at taking pictures and developing them. Later, staffers arranged page layouts and finished the headlines. Then Mortoniters completed the final stage by sending paste-ups to the printer. “The biggest challenge in being page one editors is coordinating the modular style and still having the page look eye-catching,” stated Donna Heins and Mike Murray. Not only did the Mortonite staff change printers to the Calumet Press, but the school furnished a publications darkroom. This way, photographers developed pictures in school rather than sending them to Bodie’s. “The darkroom is a definite asset, although it’s small. But we’re just starting it out and in a couple of years it should be fully equipped,” added photographer Jerry Misiewich. Editors decided to use a new type and layout style this year. Julie Marcinek, layout editor explained, “Now we use only three basic headline types to give the paper a more uniform look. It makes it easier to read and improves its appearance. We learned this technique at IU’s Journalism Institute last summer.” New style simplified Ceremony initiates dedicated staffers It all starts with lighting a candle and repeating an oath. This, along with a year of dedicated work to either Top Hat or Mortonite, initiates staffers into the honorary Quill Scroll society. At the annual Quill Scroll banquet, where the ceremony took place, new editors from both Top Hat and Mortonite are announced. “Quill Scroll is more than a ceremony at the Publications banquet. It honors students in the field of journalism,” added Greg Swiercz. Society members elected Greg Swiercz, president; Nancy Roquet, vice-president; Beth Crowe, program chairman; and Suzie Prange, secretary-treasurer as officers this year. Upon entrance to the club, each member receives a charm or pin and a Quill Scroll magazine subscription.

Mortonite, Quill Scroll — 97 blah$ After pitching stacks of 1962 discipline codes and broken Christmas tree lights, cabinet members set out to redecorate the Student Association office during the summer. Red and grey paint covered the walls and new curtains hung in every window to complete the Association’s first major project of the year. Anxious freshmen piled into the large auditorium on August 31 looking for answers to their many questions. At the parent-student orientation, Association members helped explain the what’s and where’s of classes by leading the rookie-high-schoolers on a guided tour of Morton. Brainstorming for Homecoming Spirit Week ideas became an important job for Association members as did elections for the Queen and Freshman Attendants. The dance, featuring Raven, required refreshment stand, coat check and decoration workers. Music accompanying lunch hours? The new Association- purchased juke box brought popular tunes to the cafeteria during 4th and 5th periods. As January 14 crept closer on the calendar, Winter Semi-Formal committees formed and held meetings. Officers, senators and the cabinet chose “Grand Illusion” as the theme, carried it out through decorations, and took part in band selection. Money-making projects such as bake sales, car washes, and working at the Culture Festival by setting up stages and chairs built up funds for this gala affair. r -v uVFV m rw f I] Hlh - LW am ' s fc Cabinet — Front Row: JoAnn Stribiak, Suzie Prange, Sandy Bakker.

The Morton Band came close to marching in the annual Chicago Christmas Parade, aired locally, by being placed first on a waiting list. In addition to marching in the Hammond Christmas and Hessville Memorial Day and Little League Parades, the band showed its imagination by creating different half-time formations at all home football games. Pep Band ignited spirit by playing the rousing school song. The musicians presented their knack for playing instruments at the winter concert. While Orchestra and Stage Band executed the modern pieces, the Marching Band performed all the classical versions. Citrus fruit and candy sales brought funds to the band treasury. These proceeds went for new sheet music, uniforms, buses for trips, and instruments and their repairs. Stage Band — Front Row: Dan Loser, Jim White.

Band, Orchestra — 101 Choir records Christmas album Turntables spun with familiar Morton voices after Concert Choir recorded a Christmas Album. To make it appealing to all listeners, the music ranged from traditional to classical songs. Recommendations from surrounding high school choir directors prompted Delta Recording Company to contact Morton choir director, Mrs. Carol Loehrke. Not since 1968 has the choir tackled such a job. The singers proudly sold the finished product. Reorganization of the Girls and Boys Choirs meant the creation of Mixed Choir. A Girls Ensemble also formed, which took part in all Mixed Choir presentations. While Customers shopped through the aisles of Ribordy Drug Store, yuletide songs sounded as Ensemble members caroled. The Mixed Company also performed at the Indiana State Teachers Meeting and the Hammond- Whiting Junior Miss Pageant. For their Christmas Program, the choral department chose the theme, “Old Fashioned Christmas.” The Spring concert, entitled “Spring Fever,” featured both popular tunes and classical versions of songs. To take part in an All State Choir, Pat Nadon and Darrell Barnes journeyed to Bloomington, Indiana. Selections, made through auditions, enabled the two Governors to join the gifted group of 200. For the third year in a row, the Morton Choir received a first place in the state contest out of solo and entire choir categories. The drama department’s holiday production of “Amahl and the Night Visitors” allowed choir members to sing in the Christmas opera as an extra-curricular activity. xtra time and effort are an important factors in making harmony for Paulette Murchek, Laura Bewley, Rayelle Ramsey, and Carolyn Smitka.

Mixed Choir, Girls Ensemble, Ensemble — 103 Stage crew creates behind the scenes While the average person sits in the audience wondering what comes after intermission, 18 legs hurry behind the curtain setting up the next scene. These workers, known as Stage Crew, take charge of all backstage responsibilities. Constructing sets acts as the backbone of the crewmen’s work. Amateur carpenters come out of the woodwork to construct everything from tall buildings to small props. Artists contribute to the scenery by painting landscapes and murals on canvas backdrops. Whether it be play or choral department presentation, crew members run the stage lights. By blending colored lighting, they display their electronic know-how and create special effects. Costuming the cast becomes another fundamental task for the crew. By designing appropriate outfits, crew members help make the characters more realistic. To aid the audience, crewmen devise a program previewing the acts and songs. They further add to the performance by improvising sounds and working the curtains. In order to enter the honorary organization of Thespians, Theatre Guild members must earn 12 points — each point worth 10 hours of work. At the annual spring initiation, devoted crewmen and actors take an oath and recite a special cutting from a play. This year, Thespian alumni accepted invitations from the incoming members to attend the candlelight ceremony.

Squad changes: rotates captain, adopts mascot Candle light bowling provided the unusual yet effective fund-raiser the cheerleaders needed for summer camp in Midland, Michigan. A dark Plaza Lanes hosted the “couples only” event; alley lights supplied the sole illumination in the building. For their imaginative mounts, jumps and crowd involvement techniques, the varsity squad received four ribbons. Junior Shari Brehmer commented, “By watching other squads at camp, we learned some new ideas that we can use to improve our own skills.” Instead of the traditional one squad captain, varsity cheerleaders rotated the position so that each could gain this experience. The captain of the month also served as mascot by wearing top hat and tails. At a summer clinic, cheerleaders taught middle school girls various cheering skills to prepare them for high school tryouts. The competition for best school squad resulted in the presentation of a trophy. “Quarry” entertained the sold out crowd at th e first dance of the year, sponsored by the cheerleaders.

Harnesses, knee pads and hard hats equipped Caving Club members on their spelunking expeditions. A trip to southern Indiana gave the cavers a chance to explore new and unknown caves in the spring. “Since it’s the club’s first year, everybody’s enthusiastic. We’ve even ordered club jackets,” commented sophomore Joe Salus. Lincoln Park and Brookfield Zoos hosted two Herpetology Club outings for studying various reptile behavior. Members extended their knowledge by viewing snake exhibits in private homes and by conducting biological labs in school. Field trips took a top position on the Zoology Club activity list. Interested members explored labs at St. Catherine’s Hospital as well as the surrounding colleges. Guest speakers performed demonstrations and gave lectures on such topics as veterinary medicine. The Florida Keys provided the ideal location for members to collect many unusual species of ocean life when they traveled to the coast. To measure the speed of light, Physics Club members built a laser, possible through funds raised at a Mr. Football dance bake sale. The amateur physicists did research in the field of nuclear energy when touring Argon National Labs.

By planting oak saplings and shrubs on the school campus, Chem Club members continued the work of the Youth Conservation Corps. The project of cleaning up the nature center also busied the ecologists. In order for Photo Club to buy the necessary chemicals and paper for developing film, members sold Christmas candles. A spring photo contest enabled members to exhibit their talent and gain experience. The responsibility of supplying projectors to classes fell upon A-V Club. Members helped the faculty with the unfamiliar equipment set ups and operation procedures. Chess Club members mastered new strategies for quick checkmates. Tournaments allowed opponents to test their Dlavine skill. A. V. Club — Front Row: Kim McCullough, Mary Chmielik, Marty Booker, Danny Barrett, Sandi Barnes, Doug Drees.

How many students graduated from Morton in 1954? a. 59 b. 119 c. 307 Answer: a. 59 Growing, from Physical Ed. to Drivers Education ... growing, from Orientation to Commencement. Beginning with the first step a student takes in the hallways of Morton, he experiences many various situations which affect his daily life as well as his future. Amid all the schoolwork and extracurricular activities present, the people associated with Morton make the school life most enjoyable. Teachers and administrators work together as one to provide students with the best academic program possible while furnishing many methods of obtaining pleasure. They aid students with the many problems and questions which are always a part of growing up. To comply with the increase of students, Morton’s faculty numbers 86 as compared to 40 in 1954. New acquaintances become close and trusted friends while in high school. Activities and problems such as cheering at a football game and hoping for a certain date are enjoyed and shared with fellow students and Governors. After the thrill of your first Homecoming, dances, and hours spent on homework are long forgotten, the people involved in your high school days such as your favorite teacher and your closest friend will remain forever in your mind. 118 — People Seniors reflect on past years As I walk down these corridors for the last time, I think back on the four years during which I was molded into a young adult. My dreams and fears were secretly kept inside these walls, but as I turn the corner and head for the door, I realize that all these dreams and fears will walk out with me, never to return. I stop at the door and take one last look backwards, and as a tear rolls down my cheek, I can’t help but smile as I remember .. . Darn! Double darn!! I wanted to go to Washington D.C. so bad! I already had my peanuts ready to present to our president, but nobody was interested enough to go so the trip was canceled. Maybe I’ll go to the zoo and visit the elephants. Lights! Camera! Action! “Broadway was this year’s theme for Prom and I had a great time. ' Silly Bob sat in the director’s chair half the night screaming through the megaphone and snapping everyone with the clapboard. Just think; my last formal affair in high school. My last. SPLASH!! “Help! I can’t swim!” Boy was that ever fun. School must have been awfully empty without us. I felt so sorry for Lisa, her mother wouldn’t let her come with us on Ditch Day. I got so stuffed eating all those hot dogs and potato chips. Burp! Oh, excuse me. I’ll never forget the things that Darryl said in his valedictorian speech. As I looked around, I must admit that I have never seen so many solemn faces before. At least not in one place, at one time. Receiving my diploma was a shock. I don’t know what I expected. Maybe I was waiting for someone to pat me on the head and say, “It’ll be all right. I’ll take your hand and lead the way.” But I know it won’t be like that. It’s all up to me now . . . Beep! Beep! “Hurry up slowpoke!” “Hurry up for what?” I thought. This is the last time that I’ll walk down these halls, down these ramps and catch a glimpse in these mirrors. The last time I’ll ... Oh never mind! Come on dreams and fears; this is where we do it, this is the final stage. SIHAM ALI ABDELHADI — Teacher’s Asst.

In Memoriam Janet Carol Kandalec November 16, 1959 — November 6, 1977 Seniors — 145 To escape the mundane school routine seniors Russ Bollhorst, Dave Grubesic, R Phil Kowalski, and Jeff Zurawski go hi home to “jam” to some music and forget W about their homework. di “Doctor, Doctor, is it a fatal disease? Will I die? How long do I have to live?” “No, it’s not fatal, but you do have a bad case of senioritis. Ditch two classes and call me in the morning.” Senioritis is a disease that hits seniors in epidemic propor¬ tions. Once afflicted with the cantagious disease, classes become extremely boring, hom ework is a total drag, and seniors have somehow loss a feeling of responsibility for their work. Like the disease tonsilitis, neuritis, bursitis, and bronchitis, senior symptoms are often treated by seniors who prescribe their own “Medication.” As the snow melts and spring approaches, senioritis becomes more widespread. The beaches are full of students who can no longer stay caged within the cold gray walls of Morton. Shopping malls abound with An early dismissal provides senior Amy Rudzinski with many ways to spend her hard earned money. Shopping sprees at Woodmar and other malls quickly diminish her limited finances. the influx of students looking for some form of entertainment. Even homes of students with working parents become “partying places.” Senioritis affects each senior in a different way. For some, graduation in January is the only cure. For others, ditching classes, early dismissals and dropping out solve the problem. “By doing the same thing day after day you end up feeling like a robot. You get to the point where you can’t take it any more and want desperately to get out,” confessed senior Carol Stephens. For seniors who spent three previous years working hard to keep up their grades, senioritis is an escape route. Instead of blaming themselves for watching an additonal hour of television, or crusin thru Mac’s or staying late at “Rocky’s”, seniors claim to have fallen victims of senioritis not caring if their work is completed. 146 — Senioritis An additional cause of senior¬ ity is the lack of activities out¬ side of school that would involve seniors. There aren’t many places in the immediate area that can be used by students as a recrea¬ tion or meeting center. Thus, students either spend their after school hours watching “the tube” or becoming so bored that they want to do nothing at all. In earlier years, senioritis was a disease that only affected graduating students. But anyone walking down the halls of Morton probably realizes by the number of underclassmen walking out of the doors getting a breath of fresh air or other students trying not to be seen by their next hour teacher as they sneak out the door, that students of every grade level, freshman through senior, are be¬ ginning to contract this disease. As a disease that affects most seniors becomes more prevalent, senior Tina Stripka finds that she, too, has fallen victim to this melody. Gum chewing may not be allowed in school, but senior Kevin Polkinghorn uses it to relieve his “tensions.” Senioritis — 147 to « 8 © s to « 8 O s •s to W 8 O 35 Juniors break fund-raising record With prom plans underway, junior class president Nancy Szydlowski looks for¬ ward to its completion in April. Happy with the outcome of the dance, junior sponsors Ms. Mary Baturoni and Mrs. Shirley Rotenberg eye profits. Stopping in the office to check on funds adds to the regular routine of junior secretary Michele Bac. While reclining in the Association office, junior class vice-president Denise Hilton searches for ideas. Stacks of money, totaling $3800, were stored behind the doors of the main office vault. These bundles amounted to more cash than any class had ever raised before. Three years of selling candy, taking orders, peddling tickets, organizing dances .. . seemed to have been worth the effort. This year the junior class sponsored a dance featuring the group “Rampage.” Class members profitted over $600. Another fund raiser was a Val¬ entine carnation sale. A red carna¬ tion denoted passion, pink signi¬ fied affection and blue indicated friendship. Students sent the flow¬ ers during homeroom Feb. 14. Along with money making pro¬ jects, juniors engaged in an assortment of activities. “This year has gone by so fast because we were so busy with pow¬ der puff practices, dances and most of all the prom,” commented junior Kim Szyndrowski. Beams of light swayed in the sky at Wicker Park Club House announcing the ’78 prom. To develop the Broadway theme, centerpieces depicted popular Broadway plays. Doormen welcomed students, along with a mannequin in a glass case. Hostesses dressed as famous Broad¬ way actresses served refreshments. “It was a little inconvenient to have the prom on a Friday night, but considering the place we had chosen, I think it was worth it,” admitted Denise Hilton, junior class vice-president. 148 V Sheila Abel Gary Adzia Greg Alberts Jennifer Alberts Lisa Algozine Jim Andrews Tim Anoskey Chuck Appelquist Rosemary Ardelean Steve Arnold Michele Bac Joe Banasiak Sue Bandura Frank Bardoczi Carl Barnes Darrell Barnes Becky Barrett Danny Barrett Jim Barrick Robert Barrix Jewel Barron Jay Bartlett Ramona Basiger Sandi Batson Amy Bell Dave Bensinger Mark Bermingham A1 Bethell Michelle Biggs Bridget Bigler Mike Blackwell Brad Bobowski Nancy Bock Sue Boilek Cathy Bolch Barb Boutcher Diane Brady Greg Brandner Shari Brehmer Scott Brey Chuck Bright Dan Brnicky Tim Byrne Judy Calderon ■ 149 4ide basis oS social liSe- © u a X u 8 © Karen Call Rhonda Call Jim Cannon Debby Cartwright Pam Casper Mary Chambers Kathy Chance Beth Chmielik Joyce Chovanec Linda Christman Dennis Churilla Tina Chyzy Maurine Clayton Patty Clemens Mary Beth Colello Connie Cookston OD 8 © 8 x © u 8 © © Carlos Cotto Beverly Cowley Randy Crague Scott Crawley Ken Croft Ginger Crook Dave Crum Gary Cruse Tim Crutchfield Lis Cruz Brian Cummings Bernie Curiel Kimberly Curtis John Davenport Cindy Deal Dory Deem 1 -- 1 " !

This year the sophomores 0 _ accomplished this feat! Approximately 30 teachers had (£ been asked to sponsor the Class of ’80 at the beginning of the school year. Since the sophs were short on funds, many teachers felt that this job would be too big to handle. A) The sophomores still remained optimistic. They successfully organ- F) ized fund raising projects, in hopes of increasing their earnings for the C junior-senior prom in 1979. A car wash during the summer •P4 boosted the class fund with $150, along with three bake sales. Homecoming mums were sold during lunch hours in the cafeteria commons. Students bought the corsages to wear on homecoming. The sophs made $167. A jewelry sale added $220 to the treasury. Each sophomore was given a package of 12 necklaces. Sophs sold each necklace for $3. The Adult Athletic Association agreed to sponsor a raffle for the . sophs. The idea was originated by a student and the tickets were sold to classmates, teachers and families. Additional plans included a dance, another bake sale, a candy sale and a car wash in the spring. Business contracts, which must be signed by an adult, were officiated by the assistant principal, Mr. Philip Mateja. Mrs. Shirley Rotenberg, junior class sponsor, also helped on occasion. Collectively, the sophomores accumulated $1200, money gained without a sponsor. If they had had an adviser, would they have earned more? This we will never know. Money making projects were quite time consuming, but students also had scholastic goals to accomplish and decisions to make. In preparation for college entrance exams, some sophs benefitted from PSAT tests in October. Every year the sophomores are confronted with choosing class rings. An assembly in January helped them decide. Some students bought their rings through school, while others preferred purchasing them elsewhere. The class officers have a lot of work, but they have confidence in their classmates who offer assistance. “They are really a dependable class. If there is an activity, they will be there to help out,” remarked Phil Elo, sophomore class president.

I kept walking into the wrong classrooms and I had a hard time finding the cafeteria at lunch. My arms hurt at the end of the day from carrying my books around all day; I couldn’t figure out how to unlock my locker. I hope everyday isn’t like this! I realized that my feelings were shared with many other frosh. In the locker room I heard Marsha Frenzel say, “It was one of my scariest moments when I walked into school for the First time!” After getting used to the regular routine, we soon felt like we were an active part of the student body. I found out that every class is responsible for financing a prom its junior year. We organized money making projects to build up our treasury for this purpose. We sponsored a trip to Old Chicago and gained approximately $77 for our class. Another fund raiser had us collecting used items for a rummage sale. It was located in the school parking lot and increased our earnings with about $80. One morning during homeroom, Dr. Becker announced that the homecoming parade had been cancelled. While a group of us were discussing it, John Weis commented, “I’m disappointed be¬ cause it’s my first year at Morton and I was sort of expecting it.” Now that I look back, freshman year wasn’t so bad after all. In fact, it was a lot of fun! “Is that where we’re supposed to be?” Freshmen Steve Tall and Mike Plaskett wander through the halls of Morton.

From the beginning of the year the faculty is learning about students while the students learn about the subjects. Faculty strives to make their individual classes as interesting to pupils as possible. With the aid of films, class discussions, field trips, and other such activities, teachers achieve this goal. Herr Dieter Meister and his German classes spent a day in Chicago viewing a German “song and dance” show in addition to visiting German Town. Commenting on the trip, Herr Meister stated, “It was a worthwhile exposure to one aspect of German culture.” Miss Dona Goldman remarked of her class, “When we study Greek mythology, I have the students put themselves in the Greek gods’ shoes, while others ask the “gods” questions. Mr. Don Huls stated, “I keep my classes lively by occasionally interrupting my stories to teach math.” In one English class students choose their own reading and vocabulary list. “I am trying to get away from the traditional way of teaching,” said Mr. Michael Harris. Five new teachers were added to this year’s faculty list. They are Mr. Michael Harris, English; Mrs. Patricia Johnson, science; Miss Diana Vasquez, special education, Mr. Richard Volbrecht, mathematics. Returning teachers to the MHS staff are Mr. Jerry Woodward, social studies and Mr. Dan Mayerik, industrial arts. Dr. W.

Vierk’s, Consumer Roofing, Co., and many others continue to grow with the ever-changing needs of the community to provide the finest products and service possible. In order to comply with the new times, some firms including McDonald’s and Citizen’s Federal Savings and Loan rejuvenated the buildings from which they operate. Modern equipment enables products to be delivered to customers at a much quicker rate. To meet the newly acquired needs of the growing population, many new firms have been established. Fast food restaurants, such as Pizza Hut, Lung Wah, and Bonanza allow ‘mom’ a day’s rest from the kitchen. With the increase in automobiles, more gas stations and car dealerships are now in business. A greater concern about fashions forces more clothing stores, such as Einhorn’s and Rosalee’s into operation to meet the always growing needs of the community. More high school students now belong to the work force, therefore enabling them to make more purchases. Local business must now fulfill their needs as well as their parents’. Such firms as Millikan’s and Black Tie cater to both the young and the old. ©dl(10iM©8 184 — Advertising As they prepare to tackle a homework assignment, seniors Mary Bernacki and Janet Adams find a comfortable place to study.

As production editors of this year’s publication of Top Hat, we would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who made the production possible and all the memories that we will cherish for years to come. Our appreciation is especially given to our adviser, Mrs. Cynthia Pepelea, for her contributions to the staff. Her constructive criticism, suggestions, and aid in and out of deadlines helped the book to be a success (mother knows best). We would also like to thank our yearbook representative, Pat Lindemann, . for seeing us through smoothly. To Lisa, Tom, Brucey, and friends at IU we say, “It was fun while it lasted.” To Katy (alias Estella Torrabella) and Sid we say, “Conehead, go home!” Thanks Georgie Porgie for letting us know your secret. For their dedicated service, the staff thanks Dan Novakowski, Jerry Misiewich, Bodie Photographers, Andros Studios, Harry Dudzik, and Tom Semesky for all their contributions of artwork, student photography, senior and underclass pictures and all other shots in the yearbook respectively. This publication is printed on 80 pound gloss paper; copy is 10 pt. Century Schoolbook, captions 8 pt. Century Schoolbook, and headlines that aren’t set by staff members are 24 pt. Palatino Bold or Lydian. The advertising section is in Lydian and Lydian Italics 24 and 48 pt. Cooper White, Black, and Kabel Heavy were Formatt types used throughout the book. We would like to make one final statement: “The Culver Coneheads” confess to the T.P. job in the dorm. The memories were sure worth all the bother! Beth Crowe and Chris Diehl Managing Co-Editors Acknowledgements — 231 Ip£?®gff®ss9®CQ 9003® Soo3ooff® ooc You still continue to grow as you look over the past year, deciding which direction you should take. All the homework, football games, and McDonald’s hamburgers seem so very long ago. Only the future remains. Remember as the year progressed, you learned more and more and in the process, you expanded your mind to levels that you didn’t even know existed. Accepting a ‘C’ though you knew you deserved a ‘B’ in algebra made you realize problems arise as people continue to grow older. As our high school continues to age, so will you. In time you’ll look back and wonder how you grew up so fast! These events are part of growing up, part of life, as well as part of Morton. 232 — Closing
