To take advantage of the last fall days senior Steve Hussey, frosh Rhonda Foo and soph Tom Dujan enjoy the Nature Center. Plant care requires gentle hands of senior Debbie Williams while spraying the fern leaves in the library. Togas, clickers add ( one wild 5 Chants of “Toga, toga!” echoed through the halls as rowdy Governors stampeded into what Dr. Becker described as the most spirited pep assembly in years. Sore throats from cheering and participation in Spirit Week costumes paid off as the “wild and crazy” seniors grabbed the 1978 Spirit Stick. Despite strange looks from outsiders, students exhibited bad taste in outfit coordinating on Clash Day. Aunt Penelope’s bizarre striped wig along with a favorite bird nest hat were a necessity on Wig-Hat-T-Shirt-Shoe Day. Later on in the week, loyal Governors donned red and grey and purchased senior clicker noise- makers. At the candidate assembly, seniors devised a skit to satirize the Homecoming court. The Gong Show i Toga Dancers performed steps to the song “Time Warp.” The return of the parade brought excitement to Morton and the community. The sophomores’ “Dynamite” truck and the seniors’ float, “Count on a Victory”, highlighted the parade. crazy Homecoming 1 8 — Homecoming Hamlet’s soliloquy provides the perfect cheering routine for senior Tim Kaminski as he mockingly portrays a candidate ' s talent. Was it banana cream? Enthusiasm from wild and c razy seniors, causing class president Gary Adzia to get a pie in his face, much delights senior Tami Lambert at Homecoming pep assembly. Fonzie type characters, saddle shoes, slicked hair, poodle shirts, and cat-eye glasses all make up “Greaser Day” for spirit week. Flower makings, hard work, and patience from the sophomores all helped their float to place first in the Homecoming parade. Homecoming — 9 % Dorm, 5weet Dorm HELP! What am I doing here? What could I have possibly done to deserve such a punishment? Such thoughts ran rampant through the minds of students as they endured long hours of assignments and practices at summer workshops. Instituters got a taste of dorm life by sharing a bathroom with 30 strangers and rising to the sound of somebody else’s fog horn alarm. They soon learned that oversleep and clock ignoring meant missed meals. Girls and boys staters created a government at ISU by running for offices and holding congressional assemblies and state delegate conventions. “We practiced morning, noon and night,” gasped senior Mary Stanny. Defense stances and other basketball drills were perfected when the four varsity players traveled to IU. After seminars on student exchange programs, the Association officers took part in a Leadership Institute micro-lab. They learned how to better relate to people through trust exercises.

XX ■ - cRPicKiriQ Down Police, student I D ' s aid enforcemen Hiring police for the protection of MHS students decreased the problem of outsiders entering school grounds. Even though the officers are considered off-duty, they hold the power to arrest people for smoking, gambling, drinking, and all traffic violations. Patrolling of the parking lot takes place before, after, and on both lunch hours. “We needed the police to keep outsiders from creating disturbances, and to control the behavior of a minority of the students,” commented Dr. W. Winston Becker. Frequent checking of student I.D. cards, both by teachers and the police, assure that the student is enrolled at Morton The cards are similar to a driver’s licensi containing the student’s picture address, phone number, and year o graduation. They are issued in all the Hammond schools as proof of identification Towing became the answer to encourage students to register their car. I was not uncommon to hear licenses reac over the intercom system for towing Students rushed to register their car wher they realized the administration was serious. Last year 10 cars were towed and 5 this year Just making sure everything is fine, Officei Bobowski encounters a group of Morton students on lunch hour in the parking lot. 14 — Special Essay Special Essay — 15 Before the meal is served, seniors Tami Mitchell, Mark Tate, Sue Jones and junior Kim Patton discuss whether to go to the beach or an amusement park the next day.

Seniors Nancy Ziel and Greg Brandner find that as the band begins to play “Walk This Way,” the floor becomes crowded. X 16 — Prom Couples together ' Moment by Moment ' 6:45 — Tick, tock, tick, tock, rinnggg! Crystal Rainbow awakens. It’s May 18, prom day. She gazes at the pale blue dress hanging in her closet, as she goes through the before-school-preparations. 10:15 — The last hour prior to dismissal has finally arrived. Crystal watches the clock attentively as time drags on. 11:10 — Crystal is out of school and ready to run around getting the last minute necessities for the big night. 2:30 — Crystal goes to the florist to pick up her date’s (Leroy Brown’s) blue boutineer. 3:00 — Three hours of getting things together begin. 6:00 — Leroy taps at Crystal ' s door.

Prom — 17 Zeus juice, clouds, gods set mythological mood Two-hundred couples crossed over a wooden bridge to enter the pearly gates of the Winter Semi-Formal " Heaven Tonight " on February 10. Weeks before its presentation, cherubs planned their course of action and got the necessary supplies. Sittings had to be arranged for Zeus and the other gods and godesses. Clouds had to be rented. Stars and constellations had to be notified. Those little cherubs worked and worked. The heavenly night finally arrived; the preparations were complete. The lights dimmed as the time for admittance drew nearer. The little cherubs gazed at the brightly colored murals, the clouds hanging from the blue sky, the rainbows, falling stars and planets shooting out of clouds on the tables. Sighs of relief and exhaustion were heard from these devoted cherubs. Angels from Cloud Nine brought Zeus Juice, Love Potion, and cheese and crackers to couples taking a break from the dance music of Slipstream. Couples posed against a mountain scene for pictures and got back into the dance with their pearly gate key ticket. By 11:30, the guests had gone — most enjoyed a late dinner at an area restaurant. The little cherubs came back. This time it was to change the celestial menagerie back into a student cafeteria once more. On Cloud Nine, seniors Mona Kosiba and 1 Brian Cummings sample Zeus Juice, Love Potion, and various crackers to quiet increasing hunger pangs. “Where are you going to eat? " Couples decide who to double with and have to go afterwards during a quiet Slipstream break at the end of the dance. 18 — Winter Semi-Formal Rock ’n roll, disco, and slow dancing dominate the dance floor as these couples swing to of the band. Through the pearly gates and over the bridge are senior Pam Casper and Gavit alumnus J oe Yerga entering into the world of ' Heaven Tonight’.

Plays — 21 Pair staIks treasure It brings joy and happiness to anyone who owns it ... “The Golden Periwinkle " . This notion seems especially appealing to an unhappy, nasty old man and a greedy spoiled brat of a little girl. So Thaddeus T. Mulberry and Melinda set off to find the treasure. They begin in the magical country of “R " where all is beautiful and happy, yet the Golden Periwinkle is not there. The Land of Light may hold the secret of it’s where-abouts, but the pair must travel through the dark and spooky Land of Night to arrive.

More than 900 members of the Peoples Temple religious cult died. The California-based religious sect was located at Jonestown, Guyana in the jungle on the northern coast of South America. Reverend Jim Jones, a once respected Indiana-born humanitarian, headed the colony. Visiting Americans, including California Congressman Leo Ryan, three newsmen and one defector from the colony, were ambushed when trying to board two planes that were leaving Guyana. They had been checking the cult’s strange doings. Rev. Jones, upon hearing of the ambush, felt that the colony was being threatened and ordered a destructive suicide. The followers sipped a lethal drink concocted of potassium cyanide and potassium chloride. Purple Flavor-Aid sweetened the potion. Parents and nurses squirted the poison onto the tongues of babies with syringes. Gacy charged. Hears! freed First he put handcuffs on himself and unlocked them. Then he persuaded his victims to try the cuffs on but failed to teach them the trick in releasing them. In this way, John Gacy alledgedly trapped 32 young men and boys and strangled them. Gacy alledgedly buried most of the victims under his house and garage, and threw five into the Des Plaines River. If his confession to 32 murders is true, he will be the worst mass murderer in U.S. history. After thousands of calls and letters, President Carter and the Department of Justice decided to act upon the requests to free Patty Hearst. Her sentence of seven years for her part in the S.L.A. bank robbery was commuted, and she was released five months before parole eligibility. 24 — National, Local Kenny L«g:g1ns...Blneis Straight-legs, vests, spikes complete wardrobe The key word in high school dressing this year seemed to be vests. There were down- filled vests, tapestry vests, satin vests, ... Straight leg western-style jeans made from corduroy and denim were often worn with them. Designer jeans were a big interest. Calvin Klein, Sassoon, GaVinci, ... were names dropped on the backs of these jeans. Ruffled collars, preacher collars, and small pointed collars swept into the limelight and on to the backs of countless girls. New colors, or dusty variations of old colors, came into existence this fall. Khaki green and khaki tan also frequented halls and classrooms. Accessories took some drastic turns and tumbles. One such change occurred with shoes. Three to four inch heels, along with clogs, and last year’s knee high boots scuffed floor and stairs. Long scarfs, neckties, and pouches were hung around necks. Double wrap belts made their debut on the high school waistline. Brothers ...To . Heading the list of some of the top albums of the year were Billy Joel’s “52nd Street”, Foreigner’s “Double Vision”, and Steve Martin’s “A Wild Crazy Guy”. Pledging their proceeds from “Too Much Heaven”, the Bee Gees helped with the United Nation’s fund. Also top artists such as Rod Stewart, Earth Wind and Fire, and John Denver donated a song. John Belushi teamed up with Dan Akroyd, both of " Saturday Night Live”, to form the Blues Brothers. On their album “Briefcase Full of Blues”, their single “Soul Man” was successful. Disco music came alive with Village People’s “Macho Man”, and Donna Summer’s “MacArthur Park”. 1 f H g © f Carter probes crises After 13 days at the Camp David Summit, Host President Carter, Israeli Premier Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat emerged from secrecy to television cameras. From the summit, two documents were drawn up that outlined plans for Middle East peace. After signing the agreement, old enemies Sadat and Begin embraced, climaxing the spirit of Camp David. In 1949, the Chinese government split and Chiang Kai-shek fled to Taiwan to establish the Chinese Nationalist Party, while the mainland remained Communist China. The United States then recognized Taiwan as the official Chinese government and failed to acknowledge mainland Chin ountr jnti December 1978. President Carter nullified a 24-year-old defense treaty with Taiwan and established a new bond between the United States and People’s Republic of China. When China’s Vice Premier Teng Hsiaso-p’ing visited the U.S., Taiwanese Americans became in inflamed with demonstrations protesting the betrayal of the once Taiwanese ally. His honest attempts to westernize Iran failed to outweigh his lavish way of life when angry Iranians compared the Shah’s good and bad points. Fearing assassination, the Shah fled the country, ■ leaving Bakhtiar in power. Still not satisfied with the government, Iranians looked to Ayatollah Khomeini to lead them in a revolution. National, Local — 25 5coop Highlights Notable folks from ‘78-79 After the death of Pope Paul VI, the people of the world turned their eyes to the Sistine Chapel for white smoke promising a new Pontiff. Successor Pope John Paul I, " the Smiling Pope, " died after a reign of only 34 days. Then for the first time, the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church elected a Polish leader, Pope John Paul II. Norman Rockwell, 1895-1978, captured the innocence and charisma of an overlooked, everyday America. His illustrations on the cover of Saturday Evening Post delighted readers for years. Before his death in 1979, Nelson Rockefeller had served four terms as New York governor and two years as the Vice-President under Gerald Ford. Although he was well-qualified, the Republican Party three times denied him the presidential nomination. Teenage heartthrob Donny Osmond celebrated his marriage to his new bride with grape juice toasts. Princess Caroline of Monaco exchanged vows with twice her age Philippe Junot. Couples previously unable to bear children were given an alternative to long adoption lines. With the birth of the world’s first test-tube baby, Louise Brown, England, made a scientific breakthrough.

If you were in the Calumet Region during the winter of 1978-1979, you probably wouldn’t hesitate in answering NO! Students trudged through three feet of drifted snow, and five feet of plowed snow in some places, on their way to school. Those driving had problems too. Skidding, getting stuck, and accidents were frequent topics during lunch and in between classes. Mayor Raskowski and other city officials spent long hours devising plans for snow removal in Hammond. Contract plowers averaged $70 each hour to clear the city’s streets. Along with snow, ice, and cold comes chuckholes. These craters caused innumerable flat tires.

S ' Spin-offs on the tube ( originated from movies, not series this year. “Delta House” and “Brothers and Sisters " were patterned after the wild antics of fraternity life characterized in “Animal House.” From “Starwars” came the spinoff “Battlestar Galactica” with Starbuck and Redeye. Mini-series ranged from “How the West Was Won” to “Holocaust” — the story of how Hitler attempted to annhililate Germany’s Jews. Alex Haley came up with the sequel “Roots II — The Next Generations.” Viewers saved movie ticket money by catching “Rocky,” “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,” and ‘‘Shampoo ” on T.V. CIA employee William Kampiles was found guilty of theft and espionage in a Federal jury court in Hammond. The Munster resident confessed to having stolen a classified manual for the KH-11 surveillance satellite and selling it to the Russians for $3000. Four separate fires at the Whiting Amoco Refinery in one week prompted suspicions of sabotage. During the first fire, residents in the area were forced to evacuate their houses and congregate in the Whiting Community Center. An apartment complex at the Kennedy Park Apartments burned down leaving many people homeless. With the building of Griffith Park Shopping Center, local consumers found an alternative to Woodmar Shopping Center. The new site of Venture, Sambo’s and Fayva provided easier access for some people and store employment for others. Because of the deterioration and declining enrollment of Hammond Tech, discussions arose questioning whether or not to close its academic section. National, Local — 27 lop notch individuals stand out “What does ornithopter mean? " strained senior Tim Kaminski as he took the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. High scores led to a semi-finalist position in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. Breathing correctly from the diaphragm and bringing her vibrato to an equilibrium were foremost in senior Sue Boilek ' s mind as she successfully auditioned for the All-State Choir. The sole Morton winner journeyed to Kokomo to join the talented group.

Displaying her singing ability allowed senior Sue Boilek to become a chosen member representing Morton in All-State Choir. Awards — 29 Paper Chase Clue 1: Finding a place to begin requires much thought. Since school concerns learning, I figured academics would be the best place to start. One piece of info I received concerned the roaming and barking of leashed dogs around the school. I gathered that the pets were being used for English class demonstration speeches on how to properly groom and train man’s best friend. I know every year freshmen seem shorter, but the ones I saw were ridiculous. Then I learned it was all a part of the child development course. Students took care of a small tot for the day going to classes, and lunch.

Smashing Summer Hi! I’m Cary the car and I want to to tell you about my summer. My day started at 7:15 a.m. when the driver education teacher drove me to Morton High School. I saw Hammond students working in the YCC program every morning at 7:30 cleaning up and beautifying the school grounds. Dr. Mary Pettersen, director, started the program by getting a U.S. grant. I overheard some students talking about health and safety. One incoming freshmen said that she enjoyed working with mice and learning about diets. Another liked checking her visual judgement by working with the depth perceptor in drivers education. Still another said that government and economics were worth her while. I remember the day a student driver was learning to parallel park and another car crashed into me! Nobody was hurt, but now my body is scarred and wrinkled. Well, I guess that just comes with learning and age. Our founding forefathers pose no problem for senior Kim Ford as she presents a speech on James Madison in government. “I give up!” jokingly proclaims senior Kathy Chance while working during the summer in Hammond ' s VCC program. Summer School — 33 Driver Education students profit not only from road experience, but from lessons on car engines as well. “Accidents do happen,” was the motto of drivers education teacher Mr. Randy Starewicz after a student dented the car. Irma goes Japanese style Irma Imagination here, nice to meet ya! I am very important and am needed by all. With the English classes this year, students have really put me to work, but I do not mind. In world literature, the class imagined being in Japan at a customary tea ceremony. Mrs. Alberta Lungren, teacher, learned how to officiate at such a ceremony on her trip to the Orient last summer. Describing the class, Mrs. Lungren said, " World literature class teaches not only an appreciation of literary contributions of countries throughout the world, but also an understanding of and a respect for the cultural and traditional practices of various races and peoples. " Many of the English classes give writing assignments and that is where I come in. Like composing poems, plays and short stories in creative writing, or term papers in advanced composition. Mass media is where we write T.V. shows and commercials, then tape them. I love being in front of the cameras! Actors especially need me. In drama, the students do exercises that help build their imaginations. Hope to see you next year! Latest controversies come to full bloom during debate class as seniors Ken Rosek and Mary Richmond cover the world affairs. Books and newspapers prove to be helpful reference material for senior Liz Cruz in advanced composition. 34 — English English — 35 36 — Home Economics Tempting aromas hit hallway Didn’t think a spoon could talk did you? The name is Sherry Spoon. I really enjoy “mixing” with the home economics classes at Morton. As inflation rises, more girls are sewing in order to cut clothing expenses. Consumer education teaches girls to shop around for a comparison of prices and quality of several types of merchandise. The aroma of cookies, bread, and cakes, fill the halls to tempt morning appetites from food courses. During the third year of foods, a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is prepared. Dr. W. Winston Becker, principal, Mr. Philip J. Mateja, and Mr. Joseph F. Gartner, vice-principals, are honored guests during the feast. Who ever heard of a class at zero hour? That’s when single survival takes place. Once an all male class, both guys and girls, learn to manage finances, repair small sewing jobs, cook, and set tables correctly. Once again preschoolers are seen walking the halls of Morton. Their behavior is watched closely for a better understanding of youngsters in child development. Ingredients contained in a soap box are being compared in order to see which is the better buy during a consumer education class. Length of material seems to pose a problem for seamstress Alison Soto, as she tries to fit a pattern on the fabric. Home Economics — 37 Math challenges minds Problems, problems, and more problems — that’s me, Patty the math problem! I love to challenge students and stimulate their minds. After working with me in general math, students gain the basic math principles and are able to get along in life without much difficulty. In Morton’s algebra classes, I introduce students to new concepts of mathematics. This only comes about by working with me. The same is true with geometry. Proofs are solved with the help of axioms and theorems, but without working the problems, one can’t prove whether or not a theory is true. Second year algebra and analytics are also a challenge. Students who wish to prepare more for college take these classes. With helpful hints from senior Sue Jones and her calculator, senior Tim Anoskey correctly graphs his analysis homework. Could soph Ken Davidson be taking a siesta? At first glance it might seem as though, but he’s actually performing for his class. 38 — Math Field trips enlighten students “I ' m glad I took part in the German field trip. It was an enlightening, cultural experience, and I felt that the cultural show was very good,” stated senior Susan Benn. I’m Larry, the linguist, and I agree. The trip to Germantown was very worthwhile. It began with a performance by the Statten Mountain Boys, a German group who yodel and sing German songs at a nearby high school. Afterwards, we went to Germantown and we were able to go shopping and out to lunch. Many students went to Heidelburger Fass and had a very nice German lunch. Others decided to eat “American style” and went to fast food restaurants. Spanish students went to West Lafayette for a Spanish workshop and performed skits. As winter rolls around, sophomore Jeff By explaining how to use the audio visual Schneider gets into the spirit of Christmas and equipment, Mr. John Bolinger teaches soph, decorates the German classroom. Beth Saculla to tape a French skit. 40 Typewriter tells story Hi, I ' m Terry Typewriter! Business classes are different from other courses at Morton believe me, I know. I’ve sat through typing class every day and I’ve seen things you would not believe. Many of my friends have been badly injured by inexperienced typists who are overly ambitious. I’ve been lucky this year, I’ve only needed minor s urgery: just a ribbon change! I really get a work out on the days that the teacher gives a timed writing, everyone tries to increase their speed for a higher grade. Sometimes they pound my keys so hard I could just scream! One thing that puts me in a better mood is when the students type to music to develop rhythm and accuracy. Stenography is a two hour class. The first hour is spent practicing shorthand and taking dictation, the second is for typing. The class gives a lot of experience in office work such as duplicating letters and addressing envelopes. Often they type manuscripts for the counselors. Bookkeeping is a popular class this year. I guess people are interested in learning to balance books and manage cash. The adding machines can really save time during the long complicated exercises. Other office machines add to the class. Business — 41 42 — Science :?igc Microscopes, field trips benefit science projects My name is Mickey Microscope. I think the science department at Morton is the best! Let me tell you about some of the classes offered. Students like it when biology classes use me and my other friend microscopes to observe slides. The classes ventured to the Indiana State Dunes and collected samples of water, soil, bugs and plants to study in class. Animal behavior is a popular class this year. The students observed mice while disciplining them to run through sandpaper mazes. The class traveled to Purdue Lafayette to study wolf packs, they also journeyed to Brookfield Zoo where they observed baboons. Have you ever wondered how the earth was formed? In earth science, students study the effect of rivers and how rock formations develop. During the second semester they learned about astronomy and blackholes. Many of the labs are spent identifying rocks, types of sand, and plants. Chemistry class always seems to concoct some smelly, bubbly mixtures. One overly ambitious girl in chemistry class dropped a testube down the drain containing a formula she and her lab partner worked on for days. The students also took a field trip to Inland Steel Company. In zoology, students have disected cats, sharks and other animals. With a helping hand, Mr. J. Rasmussen points out a specimen to sophomore Jim Bac in biology class. Exactness in weight is necessary for senior Chuck Applequist to see the movement in a spring during a coefficiency friction lab. To get a closer look, sophomore Ron Kaminski focuses in on the small specimen with the help of Lisa Bolch during a lab. Science — 43 Students arrange music Students always push me about. I’m Nancy the musical note and I can never sit still since the music theory students learn more about music’s background and learn how to arrange music in one semeter. I overheard students talking about their six-weeks project just yesterday. The girls were discussing which piece of music they were going to arrange for the band to play. The first girl said that it wouldn’t be too hard to do since Mrs. G lenda Kolar, instructor, had already taught the students how to blend such elements as chords, sharps, flats, and crescendos. Another girl said that tracing the properties of sound, melodic diction, and harmonic diction would be quite helpful too. Ambitious junior Pam Magginnis expresses herself quite well as she attempts to create a musical composition. In attempting this melody, Mrs. Glenda Kolar lends a helping hand to junior Pam Magginnis and sophomore Sean Egan. 44 — Music Theory Individualism exposes creative, hidden talents I work with many students day in and day out — my name is Pete the paint brush. Not all students use me while taking an art course. Instead, they might work with clay or india ink. But to begin with, the new art students first learn how to master the basic principles of art. Hues are blended together to produce new shades and color tones. Some students learn the basic principle of a keen eye and a steady hand, when they turn blobs of clay on armatures into human figures and chisel animals from blocks of plaster. Other students work with cardboard and create beautiful sculptures which are unique from any other. I think individualism is the key to art, and Mr. Anthony Waring, art teacher, lets Total concentration is needed by junior Linda Galka as she paints a water color creation during art class. the students have an opportunity to express their own creativeness and individualism. The students who use me the most, are those who paint with water colors, and tempra. Some students make designs and others paint pictures. Still other students, after making unique collages, use me to put the finishing touches on their magnificent works of art. No matter what level the art student is in, the student will always be expected to express his own creativeness and individualism through his art project. With a steady hand and much patience, senior Lisa Sinchak expresses her own technique of letter painting. Old pieces of wood. wire, and metal can be transformed into a beautiful ballerina as senior Terrie Horvat discovers. — 45 46 Taxes, budgets keep econ students busy Learning how to file income tax returns, and making budgets is what the students are doing in economic class. Some days, they don’t even look at me! I ' m Becky Book. It seems that no one likes me! Students are always dropping me or shoving me into their lockers. They make me look older than I really am. I have a few friends in the next class. It is government, they say that they are read quite often. They contain many important facts that the students need to know, so they get to go home a lot. World history is where the students study about the people and events of many nations, long ago. In world history, the students have to write a research paper. U.S. history concentrates on the study of our country’s history. This is a required course, so every student has to take it. They learn all about the United States and influential people that lived and helped make the country what it is today. Geography books are some of my best friends. They have a lot of maps to teach students about far away places. Newspaper articles prove to be helpful to senior John Siple, while discussing current events with the economic class. H and R Block doesn ' t know all the tricks in preparing your income taxes. Dave Bensinger gives Roger Jackman a few tips. While researching for geography, freshman Jonn O ' Keefe tries to find information in books and local newspapers.

My name is Mike and this is what happened. They gave me a complete tune-up and checkup, and said I’m in tip-top shape. While they were working me over, I heard one boy say he had just come from electronics class and said he learned the basic principles of electricity at the beginning of the year, and later was able to make circuits and measure voltage. Then a second boy was saying how interesting woodshop and metal shop are. In wood shop, he is able to make individual projects and choose his own wood block. He also mentioned that metal shop is sure noisy, but fun too. Seeing the final product in mechanical drawing, makes the class very worthwhile, said a third boy. Dirty grease and oil doesn’t stop senior Dennis Fryer from giving this car a total checkup and tune-up in power mechanics. It ' s not a dream house, but for Mr. Darrell Johnson, seniors Randy Crague, Jim White, and junior Larry Ciupak, it ' s a beginning.

FOUND: tall, brown-eyed man with red hair to fill the position as yearbook advisor — Mr. Scott Markley. Mr. Markley replaced Mrs. Cynthia Pepelea who resigned last year as the Top Hat advisor. Nearly nine months before the 1979 Top Hat yearbook comes out, the staff is working diligently on the completion of the yearbook. Working on Morton’s Top Hat takes a great deal of cooperation. The yearbook has captured moments of school life based on social and academic functions. While attending a journalism institute during the summer, the co-editors came up with Top Secret. A little detective, designed by Dan Novakowski, gathers information to put the year together. Different styles of copywriting and layout designs were developed during the time spent at I.U. Each section editor and their staff must meet the deadlines in completing the book. Failure of one section to collect information means the delay of the publication. To gain knowledge, edge editors helped section editors meet deadlines. Long hours of cartooning and sketching keep art editors Dan Novakowski and Diane Brady busy with never-ending jobs for the yearbook.

Morton band members had to do it every morning and because of this, having wet tennis shoes, a bad cold, and unfavorable weather were just a few incidents the band had to cope with last fall. Besides performing at home football and basketball games, the band played in other events. They marched in the Hammond Christmas parade on November 18. For fund raisers the band members sold Texas oranges, grapefruits, and candy.

Showing other people the behavior of animals was also a part of Herpetology Club this year. The club spent three nights at Woodmar Shopping Center letting people hold and touch the animal. The purpose was to make the people realize that the animals are not as bad as they are made up to be. Zoology Club members spent much of their time experimenting with animals in the lab. Enjoying themselves horseback riding and exploring state parks were a few experiences that the club underwent this year. “This year we started something new in Physics Club. Before school, in the cafeteria commons, we sold doughnuts and milk to raise enough money to buy equipment to build a laser,” commented the only girl Physics member Jewel Barron.

All of the girls have been doing a good job of getting the student body involved at the football games by cheering in the stands. “I think our squad has accomplished alot during the summer and throughout the football season,” said B-team captain, Georganne Stoming. Nancy Ziel noted that the cheerleaders went to Ball State in Muncie, Indiana for their summer camp. “The techniques were a lot different down there. They seemed to be militaristic, but we still learned alot of new cheers.’ “You Light Up My Life,” was one of the many good routines the twirlers have done. During this football game they showed a little more talent by using fire with their batons. Car washes and sausage sandwich sales have helped the girls in receiving new coats and uniforms for the football and basketball seasons. " I think we have fun during fund raising activities, and it really helps us get new uniforms,” said Diane Vavrek, B-team member.

Reporters interview for their stories just before the deadline. After the stories are written, the staff designs the layout for the paper. “We weren’t afraid to start the year with a new advisor. Last year, for the majority of the second semester, we organized our own paper since we had a substitute teacher,” explained Mike Murray. Another change besides a new advisor was adding more editors to each page to contribute layout ideas of modular design. Copy editor Donna Heins commented that with every issue came a lot of hard work. One of the problems the staff faced was having enough copy for the pages.

Varsity Football — 83 Govs cope with tough battles Since I was bored last Sunday afternoon, I began to look through all the old newspaper clippings of our past football season. Wow, it was amazing how vividly all those games came back to me so easily. Our first game against Highland was one of the most exciting, because it was close throughout the entire game. Being the underdogs, we weren’t supposed to give a state-ranked team such a run for their money, but Highland overcame and defeated us in the third quarter 14-6. Of course, our game against Michigan City had to be the toughest. We lost senior Joe Walters, one of our key players, with a broken ankle, and sophomore Tony Gresham was out for the next three weeks with a dislocated collarbone cap. Who could forget Homecoming? It was a great spirit booster for the guys with the pep rally and parade. The team was really proud when they werq able to end that exciting night with an impressive victory over Tech. The Tech game reminds me of the reason why John Davenport was chosen " Most Valuable Player” by his teammates. He had over 100 yards rushing against Tech, besides working extremely hard throughout the season. Playing Hammond High always brings back the memories of ... GINSU! Although we lost that game, the guys gave it all they had for the fans who kept yelling ... GINSU! ... GINSU! With the fans chanting ... GINSU in unison, it impressed the team to hear the crowd so rowdie and excited about the game. GINSU, in plain English, means a “Chinese knife” or, in other words, “chop those Wildcats up!” Since Gavit was the last football game at Morton for the seniors, they were especially excited about it. They played hard and gave Gavit a good game, but were defeated. Washington proved to be an easy victory for the Governors, as the offense came alive with a commanding 25-8 victory over the Senators. Parents’ Night occurred on the night the football team played Clark. Parents of each team member line up on the field and are announced to the fans. We lost 28-0 to the Pioneers, but I’m sure our parents were still proud of us. The football team members made a good choice in selecting Mike Hawkins as their team captain. The team felt that he provided leadership and enthusiasm during the year. Well, I suppose I should go outside and rake the leaves, so I guess I should stop reminiscing. Maybe if I stop daydreaming and bring myself back to realty, I could get some work done.

Several reasons were cited for the successful record. Talent was the overall factor, with husky linemen who created a solid defense, and an exceptional speedy backfield. One of the most outstanding games this season was against E.C. Roosevelt. The offensive line was quite impressive as they overpowered the Rough Riders 37-0. On the defensive side, the Govs looked promising as they held Clark scoreless, while tallying 12 points. When asked to pick a most valuable player, freshmen coach, Fred Kepler stated, “I can ' t pick one individual. This year’s team worked together as a unit both defensively and offensively. Everyone involved was most valuable.” B-team coach, Mr. Bob Hunt said that if the B-team members stick together, the future varsity squad looks promising. " The B-team consists mostly of underclassmen with a lot of talent, and this is evident in the 4-3 record,” concluded Coach Hunt. Frosh Football — 87 Battle of flags won by juniors Friday night, November 2, 1978 — I think I’ll head off to watch Morton’s football game ... There’s not too many people in the stands, I wonder who Morton is playing? ... Wait a minute! The players aren’t wearing helmets and they have flags on their sides ... Ooooh, now I remember ... Those players are the junior and senior class girls playing in Booster Club’s Powder Puff game. The junior and senior class girls battled each other for four quarters, and the juniors came out on top with a 12-0 victory. The juniors surged ahead 6-0 in the first quarter when Janee Babbitt scored on a one yard run. Six more points were tallied in the third period when quarterback Lawrie Pastar pitched to Renee Vermejan who then threw a 45 yard touchdown pass to Brenda Edwards. Both conversions failed. The seniors were offensively led by Lori Burns, back; Peggy Scott and Dena Hauperich, ends; and Nancy Ziel and Linda Christman, quarterbacks.

Senior defensive standouts include Tami Lambert, tackle, and Mary Beth Collelo, linebacker. Defensive safety, junior Amy Lauer, prepares to pull the flag from senior Dena Hauprich as she breaks through a hole in the defensive line.

We played to our potential in hard games,” commented Varsity Volleyball Coach Letty Hicks while looking back on the past 21-5 winning season. Not expected to be so hot, the Govs surprised many opponents with their teamwork ability. Upsetting Griffith was one of the highlights of the season. As junior setter Renee Vermejan explained, “We were earning more respect from our opponents because we were beating teams that were state ranked.

Munster and Clark were two of the tough teams to play. But rival Gavit was thought of as the toughest, although the Governors took care of them twice. Leading their team to a record of 13-5, Kim Myca and Sue Vermejan were said to be outstanding as freshmen. Gavit and Munster were also tough in basketball along with Valparaiso and Portage. B-team basketball Coach Pat Premetz stated, “The most consistent part of our game was the number of steals we made. Frosh Sue Vermejan and Sophs Sue Bardoczi and Jane Herring averaged 4, 3, and 3 steals per game, respectively, which allowed us to score quite a bit via our defense and helped us to end a very successful season of 12-4.” Both teams look promising for the future.

One highlight of the season was losing to No. 1 ranked East Chicago Roosevelt by only three points. “We walked on the court expecting to get blown away, but after we took the lead in the first quarter, we decided to really give them a game,” remarked junior Sandy Hlad. The Govs captured their third consecutive sectional title by beating Bishop Noll 45-37, and Gavit 42-33, for the championship. “I was real pleased with the way the team pulled together after the loss of Lori Burns.

Close games, injuries hurt varsity squad “If” is a very important word in sports, and this word was a big factor in the varsity basketball season this year. Morton basketball fans have to wonder about the small things that may have given their team a sectional championship. " If” seniors Greg Brandner and Dave Smtih did not have a sprained ankle and broken leg, respectively, would Morton have had enough strength to win? “If " a free throw may have gone in, “if” the other team would have made one small mistake, or “if” a referee’s call may have gone the other way at a crucial point in the game, could the Govs have a sectional banner hanging in the gym? These “ifs " will never be answered, but have most likely been tossed around in the minds of the players, coaches, and many fans of the Morton Governors. The excitement at sectional time was preceded by a 5-13 season for the Govs. A few " ifs” could have turned this record around too, since six of the loses were by four points or less. The Governors had the lead late in the game in two exciting contests against E.C. Washington, and Gary Emerson, but they couldn’t hang on and eventually lost to these state-ranked teams.

Boys Varsity Basketball — 99 B-team, freshmen appear promising The B-team and Freshmen appear promising for the upcoming years for Varsity Coach Russ Marcinek. Freshmen Coach Rick Volbrecht thinks his group of young players will possibly win the Lake Shore Conference title because of their aggressiveness and ability to play the game. This year both teams improved physically by surpassing many tough ball clubs. Both coaches, B-team Coach Greg Jancich and Freshmen Coach Rick Volbrecht, think that the best games were played against Bishop Noll (B-team) and Munster (Freshmen). Although many of the players contributed well to the team, there are some players who stand out in particular. Leading scorers and key players for the B-team were Ron Brandner and Bill Brightwell, and for the freshmen, Ron Palucki and Tony Vermejan. There has been some progress in the development of some of the players, which Coach Jancich likes, and hopes will continue in their years ahead at Morton. Both ball clubs played well as a team, but both made errors, and in the aftermass, after all the hard and long practices, both came out and did what they could do to win. With hope of rebounding the basketball, freshmen John Gruszka strives to recover it as fellow teammates Scott Lelito, Ron Palucki, and Tony Vermejan look on.

Also breaking records in the breaststroke category was senior swimmer Rob Taylor. Impressing Coach Hunt were freshmen divers Pat Kowalski and Darla Price who placed second and fourth respectively, in their first conference meet. Although the team members decreased from last year’s team, swimming Coach Bob Hunt stated, “It’s from the lack of students and their unwillingness to work and to sacrifice time to become good athletes.

Viewing the situation upside-down, a surprised opponent quickly experiences quite a shock as he is flipped over by a Morton wrestler. Davenport nabs conference title conference title, but his mid-term graduation made him ineligible for any sectional competition. Another highlight of the season was the team effort in blanking Horace Mann 72-0. The most valuable players in terms of winning were freshman Nick Companiott, junior Stan Potter, senior John Davenport, and senior Mike Hawkins. These four wrestlers were the consistent point getters the whole season. Coach Kepler is looking forward to next year with returning letter winners Mark Eaton, Bob McAfee, and Dan MacLean. Finishing the schedule with two wins and seven losses is evidence enough of the wrestlers’ disappointing season. However, much of the unsuccessfulness was due to the loss of some important wrestlers. Bob Silaj broke his arm in the Calumet tournament, and Stan Potter suffered a knee injury in practice. Senior Mike Hawkins suffered an illness, which left him weak in sectional competition, and caused him to miss the entire conference meet.

Finishing well under pressure is the reason why Joe Tumbiolo is thought of as one of the exceptional racquetmen this year. Beating Hammond High was the highlight of the season as the victory earned Morton a first place position in the conference. However, the Govs lost a crucial conference match in the season which forced Morton to settle for a second place finish. Senior Joe Tumbiolo concluded, “After losing to Tech early in the season, the team kept its composure and ended the season on a super high note defeating Whiting and E.C. Washington.

Summing up the 1978 season Coach Johnson stated, " Considering the team’s lack of experience they did well for their first season.” When describing the 1978 girls track team, “rebuilding” may be the word that fits the best. “The team was made up of mostly freshmen and, although they were hard workers, lack of experience explains our record of 4-13,” stated track coach, Miss Olive Wade. Outstanding players throughout the season include: junior Ronda Reid who broke the school record in the softball throw, and qualified for sectionals in the same event; Mary McCree who qualified for sectionals in the 100 and 220 yard dash; and sophomore Nancy Hladek who worked hard.

Finishing the year with 7-6 overall, and 5-3 in dual Conference Meets, the Govs achieved second place in the Lake Shore Conference Indoor Meet. Captain of the track team, Jeff Jankowski, and one of the “Most Valuable Players” last year, placed sixth in state, in the low hurdles. Senior Mark Riley was the other “Most Valuable Player,” since he finished the season with most total points in the events in which he participated. Another track record was set by senior Jim Heller who ran the 100 yard dash in 10.2, setting a new varsity school record. Setting Sophomore- Freshmen records were: Al Frost with a time of 1:59.7 in the 880, and 4:38.2 in the mile set a new conference record, Stan Potter hurled the discus for a school record of 127 feet, and Steve Petho tied a school record in the 100 yard dash with a time of 10.6. 1978 Boys Track Opponent Morton Bishop Noll 63 27 Gavit 24 27 Lake Central Relays 1st Lake Shore Conference Indoor 2nd Calumet 87 35 Clark 56 37 Gavit 64 37 Tech 70 74 E.C.

With some practice in fundamentals and timing, this outfit could be a most respectable unit,” explained soccer coach John Pimental. The Morton soccer team, in the past, has always proven respectable. With a record of 6-2 in the 1978 season, the kickmen earned a second place finish in conference standings. The soccer team experienced a heartbreaking defeat to Hammond High in the City Tournament. They lost by one goal, thus preventing them from achieving their bid for a fifth straight title. “The team members voted Perry Rubino as Most Valuable Player since he came through in many pressure situations with a calm air, as though all were fine. He was a very versatik player, used mainly in the front line. But, when needed, he played full-ba and took some pressure off our goalie,” commented Coach Pimenta Mike Prljevic and junior Dean Rubino were chosen as captains of 1 1978 kickmen. Senior Ken Kolodziej concluded, “The Governors hope to start anothf City Tournament string of victories starting with the 1979 season.” Although the first annual Polish Apple Bobbinj Contest came to a close, Mead Polish Migmy Staushak O’McKavenportski steionvich won b) staying underwater for a day.

The Governors ended their season competition with a 12-11-1 record. Louis Vauter led the team with a 39.8 average for the season, and was voted the Most Valuable Player and the team captain. Vauter’s other accomplishments include a second place finish in the conference tournament and a medalist in sectionals. The team placed eighth out of twenty-six teams in the Rensaelear Tournament, and they participated in the Lake Hills Invitational Tournament coming in fourteenth, out of a total of twenty-eight. Junior Bob Soto played well under pressure, and he, along with junior Ed Kielbasa, will be returning letterman for the 1979 golf season.

Capturing the sectional and regional title were indeed a rewarding ending to an equally fruitful season. A record of 24-6 gave the 1978 baseball team a second place finish in the conference standings. Perhaps one of the most memorable games during the 1978 season was the victory over Gavit in sectionals. “Gavit has always been our rival, but this year they were state-ranked, and it’s always exciting to beat a team that’s supposed to be better than you, " commented senior Greg Brandner. Leading the diamondmen offensively with the highest batting averages were Darryl Simko hitting .392, Tom Reigel .333, and Ed Mclver .318. Carrying the team through some tough competition was ace pitcher Dave Grubesic, who had a pitching record of 7-3, with 51 strike outs. 3aseball Team —Front Row: Mark Eaton, Jeff Schneider, Mike Riffle, Dennis Zarember.

The return of the homecoming parade gave the seniors an opportunity to construct a float. Hours of preparation including flower makings and float constructions led to the making of “Count On A Victory.” The senior class had the choice of a trip to Florida or California. After a class vote it was decided that the seniors would soak up the sun in Florida. The seniors, who vacationed spent, two days and nights in Orlando at the Davis Motor Lodge. The next stop was Daytona Beach where they stayed at the Sheraton Inn for six days and five nights. This trip was the last excursion the class of 79 would spend together. Now we’re on our own. A senior’s last year many times is his easiest. Freshman year is spent making friends and getting acquainted with the school. The students’ second year is filled with money-making projects for the junior-senior prom. Junior year is the year of putting on the prom. The last year is more relaxed. For some it means a half day of school and working, for others it means simply doing things with friends as much as one can. But where do we go from here? This is what we have waited for and now that it has come and that diploma is in hand, what are we to do? All our goals we’ve made will be put to the test, it is so frightening out there. But before we can look back, it’s good-bye Morton High. Baggy styles coming back? No, it’s just seniors Neil Wilson and Peggy Scott showing their spirit during spirit week. 124 — Seniors Charles Alan Appelquist — M-Club 4; Physics 4; Wrestling 2-4.

While buying various goods seniors Gail Hess and Kevin Powers get in a quick chat at the bookstore. Seniors — 149 150 — Weekend Nights OH, OH THE WEEKEND HIQHT5 For two nights each week, the average high school student isn’t burdened with the curse of awakening at an unthinkably early hour. These days, of course, are Friday and Saturday. During football and basketball seasons, you might decide to " cough up a buck” for the game. Post¬ game excitement is open to many alternatives. McDonald’s and Pizza Hut are favorites if you have nothing but your feet to transport you. If you have a car, you might venture out for a cruise down the Boulevard and stop for grub at Shakey’s, Burger King ... Saturdays could lead to anything. Movies, parties, bowling, parties, roller skating, parties ... or maybe even a trip to “ the spot” (if you know where it is). Dowling Park is frequently chosen by couples “in the mood for love.” If you feel exceedingly adven¬ turous, you might agree on a juant to Reder Road in Griffin, telling “mafia dumping ground stories” along the way. Autumn evenings could develop into mischievous fun, if you have a good supply of toilet paper and or as many leaf bags (full of leaves) as you can tote around. During the winter you might decide to take advantage of “Mother Nature’s blanket” and get the gang together for snowball fights and toboggan rides. At 10:30 you race to someone’s house for “Saturday Night Live” viewing (a weekend essential). After you climb into bed to catch some z’s, you lay back and start making plans for the big weekend ahead ... Weekend Nights — 151 Spensers rescue " Do you believe the junior class finally found two sponsors!” " I didn’t think we would ever find them! " No, it’s not a rumor! The junior class finally attained two sponsors — Mr. Bob Serafin and Mr. Don Hodson. These needed sponsors helped the junior class with their fund raising activities. " Prom and graduation are two of the most important events of high school, and without class sponsors these events would be impossible”, Mr. Serafin stated as one of his reasons for volunteering as class sponsor. Earlier in the year the junior class sponsored a dance which made over $400. The dance featured the band " Euphoria”. Another fund raising activity was the selling of “Morton” window stickers. Each student willing to help was given 10 stickers which were sold for $1 each. The juniors greatest goal accomplished this year was winning the annual Booster Club Powder Puff game. Long, hard practices and good coaching enabled the girls to shut out the senior girls 12-0. " Both junior and senior girls played a good game but the juniors had some outstanding plays. Don’t think we could have won without the help of our coaches who spent much of their time teaching us the basics,” said junior Brenda Edwards Powder Puff. jtiiiitt class Camela Abasalo Sharon Adokjan Lisa Adzia Jessica Aguilara Tina Alaniz Cheryl Alberts Lyn Algozine Don Allison Janee Babbitt Dawn Bach Deborah Bach Candy Ballard Duane Banks Marge Bardoczi Charles Barnes Bridget Barrentine Susan Barrera Pam Barrick John Bass Darcey Bell Lewis Bell Nina Bell Pam Brimer Kimberly Bellamy Darin Bensinger Mike Bermingham Donna Bernacki Steve Bethell Lori Beverlin Larura Bewley Kathy Bobowski Martin Boeht Marynell Boer Ron Brandner Bill Brightwell Dave Brilmyer Velma Brizzi Duane Brown Armondo Calderon Debbie Cantrell Rob Cashen Joyce Charles Misty Chavez Larry Ciupak Michelle Clark Belinda Coon Tina Coots Loree Cornelison Juniors — 153 Rose Hernandez Marcie Herochik Sandra Hlad Terry Holland Steve Holmes Sandy Hooper Tami Horn Sue Howard Nancy Hurley David Jen Greg Jen Mark Johnson Rick Josway John Jusko Bill Kammer Jeff Huffs Mike Kelly Ed Kielbasa Helen Kirincic Steve Klosak Nancy Knight Robin Knight Janet Kocur Kim Kolisz Diane Kosinski Jim Krachenfels Janeen Krieter Jane Krizman Debbie Kronland Lois Kutie Amy Lauer Bridget Lauerman Chris Lelito Dawn Lewis Kim Lewis Karen Lipka Linda Lipkovich Juniors — 155 Licenses enable Junicrs Denise Listenberger John Livingston Iva Locke Teresa Lozano Greg Lucas Scott Lush Lisa Lutzenberger Bruce Luttringer Andrea Macewicz Bev Madison Leticia Magana Pam Magginnis Leticia Maldonado Belinda Mandichak Faith Marcinek Phil Markovich Wendy Markowski Pam Marlow Dawn Martin Jerry Martin Ed Marzec Joyce Matonovich Mike Matura Dave Mays Robert McAfee Tammy McCarthy Kathy McCormick Linda McCullough Dawn McDillon Maureen McGing Robbin McNash Joe Medwetz Licenses and cars are finally in the hands of juniors, as the junior guys get ready to go out for lunch. to cruise the ville v Evelyn Mick Joy Milenez John Miley Steve Millard Lisa Mish Terri Morey Chuck Morse Sherry Mullins Patty Munjas Paulette Murchek Nikki Murga Rich Nallenweg Jackie Nemeth Michelle Nevlida Toula Nicholas Lisa Nuccio Carol Olson Lisa Oman Susan Opinker Ray Opperman Susie Orahood Jerry Osborne Deana Owen Mike Pace Carmen Packard Nada Padezanin Pamela Parker Kim Parr Juniors — Roy Perez Steve Petho Georgene Petroski Tim Pickens Randy Pinson Sue Platt Stanley Potter Mike Price Al Ramirez Laura Rapchak Donna Raymond Mark Rebey Sports occupy Jeff Reding Christine Reid Ronda Reid Jeff Relinski Nancy Relinski Rosie Richmond Debbie Riley Judi Roach Dean Rubino Georgene Sabau John Saeger Natalie Sako Ronald Salach Joseph Salus Cindy Sancya Tony Sapyta Sandra Saucedo Dena Schroeter Bobby Schultz Rory Segally Jane Seitz Chuck Shive Sam Signorelli Bob Silaj Lynda Silaj Monica Siminski Vicki Slat Sue Sliwa Carol Smitka Jami Snyder KaLee Sobek Bob Soto Tony Soy Steve Speer Margie Starkey Cecilia Stojan Georganne Stoming Pamela Sullivan wi Diane Sumler iiS UBt KSl Geralyn Swiger Paulette Szczepanski Karen Szczudlak Ruby Teran Paula Theadore Dave Thompson Scot Tomsic Bob Toporek Nancy Urbahns Chuck Valandingham Diane Vavrek Vince Vela Gilbert Vera Veronica Vera Renee Vermejan Robin Victor Sue Vrahoretis Betty Vyner Teresa Vyner Nada Vranic Michelle Weatherford James Westbrook Sandy White Chris Wilson Juniors - 159 After school practicii enables juniors Roy Mark Johnson and Bensinger to improvi Yvonne Wilson Paul Wiltberger Debbie Wojcik Laura Wojcik V Do you know we can order class rings this year? Oh! That’s right! Do you know what color you want? No, I haven’t given it much thought. Class rings were main interest for sophomore students this year. During the year, the sophomore class has been active with candy sales. Candy bars and M M’s were sold during the month of October. November kept the sophomores busy by collecting can goods from students for the Thanksgiving drive. These and many more fund raisers are helping the sophomore’s to reach their goals for a successful prom. The Wicker Park Club House is reserved for next year’s prom. The sophomore class has set the date for May 2. This early planning will help to save time next year. “ Sephs held Sophomore class sponsors Miss Vasquez and Mr. Michael Harris both agree the sophomore class has much eagerness to work. Miss Vasquez said “This is my second year as class sponsor, and I am happy the way the sophomores work together”. Toward the end of the year, the sophomores are planning a class outing. Suggestions have been made such as Old Chicago, Skiing, and Great America. They are not sure where they want to go, but both sponsors agree the class deserves some reward for hard working efforts this year. The sophomores have accumulated $1,800 in their two years of hard work. With this accomplishment and one more year to go, the class is sure to make their goal. Sophomores greatest accomplishments this year was winning the number one float during homecoming.

" , “I never knew a school could be so big!” These and many questions like these could be heard from students of the freshman class. They finally have begun high school and got a taste of high school life. But it didn’t take long to adjust to high school. Attempting to launch their first money making project of the year, the Class of ’82 sold Reeces Peanut Butter Cups. Class sponsors are Mr. Don Maicher and Mr. Phil Hruskovich. Mr. Hruskovich stated, “The candy sale went well because this class has many eager students who are determined to work and get the job done.” But the candy sales were not the only thing that kept the freshman busy. Starting high school means meeting new people and making new friends. Also for the girls it means meeting “special " friends, the upperclassmen. Homecoming became a new and important part of high school for the freshman. Although the freshman could not vote for the queen they elected the homecoming attendants. The winners of the election were Sue Vermejan and Mark Teran. They presented the crown and roses to the queen. Vice president Tammy Harrell, President Mark Teran and secretary Beth Alexander are chosen freshman class officers.

Although 3:10 may be the end of the school day, its not always the end of a staff member’s day. Staff members sponsor clubs and give a great deal of extra time helping out with student related activities. Without the aid and assistance from dedicated teachers, many extra-cur- icular activities would not have taken place this past year. Mr. Philip J. Mateja Assistant Principal Dr. W.

Individuals on the staff make this possible and for this we’d like to share our gratefulness with them. For their service and expertise, a sincere appreciation goes to Jerry Misiewich, Dan Novakowski, Bodie Photographer Harry Dudzik, and Andros Studios for their student photography, artwork, pictures, senior portraits, and underclass photos, respectively. We’d like to thank our new advisor, Mr. Scott Markley for being patient with us his first year here, and to Mrs. Pepelea, our former advisor, for guidance in our earlier years. Also, we’re grateful to our new yearbook representative, Bob Henning. This publication is printed on 80 pound stippletone. Copy is 10 pt. Helvetica and captions are 8 pt. Helvetica. All headlines are hand set by staff members. Minnett Mystique, Helvieica Thin, Broadway, Hobo, Normande, and Elefante are Formatt types used in the book.

These Governors are extraordinary creatures! They portray characteristics quite unlike any other Hammond high school. My first clue: Botany classes made the Hammond school debut at the Chicago Flower Show in 1978, setting a trend for others to follow. Clue 2: The Morton batmen represented the sole Hammond team on Semi-State competition. A student tipped me off to my third clue: Herpetology Club exhibited snakes, ridding people’s fears of the reptiles by letting customers at Woodmar hold them. After careful examination, I’ve concluded that Morton Senior High School has a personality, all its own — comparable to no other education center. 232 — Closing J. SBL
