What will or will not happen? Will inflation continue? Will we run out of gas? If inflation continues to increase at the same rate it has grown over the past 10 years, prices will skyrocket by 1990. In 1970, the cost of a new car averaged $3,400. Presently you ' re lucky if you can purchase the same quality car for under $7,000. A car will cost well over $10,000 in 1990. Car care will also increase drastically. A gallon of regular gas cost 344 in 1970, currently gas averages about $1.00 or more, and by 1990 it is expected to be over a $1.50. Europeans are already paying $2.00 a gallon, (please turn to page 7) MEAN TO MCPTCN? Forever searching to satisfy his huge appetite senior Ron Salach takes a closer look at a pie with a helping hand from sophomore Lorie Woodward at the Cultural Arts Fair. I Many changes have been made on Morton ' s campus this year. One of which is the in school suspension for rule breakers. High stepping marchers move with precise steps to the music of " Grease " during halftime of the Morton versus E.C. Washington game. Opening Assigned parking spaces for driving students are here to stay. Cars not in their designated slots will be forcibly removed. Booster club sign paintings offer seniors Candy Ballard, Yvonne Wilson, and junior Tammy Aguilar, a chance to show their school spirit. Lunch hour chats give Dr. Timothy Brown the opportunity to meet his new Morton students.

(continued from page 4) Along with rocketing transportation costs, entertainment costs have increased. In 1970, a couple could go to a movie for a mere $2.50. With rising rates, a night at the movies may become a luxury for a couple, costing approximately $16.00. Albums may be unattainable to teens in the 90 ' s if prices continue to raise. Since 1970, the price of albums has gone from $3.00 to $6.00. If the price doubles again, record albums may no longer be your best entertainment value. Most students have not been too affected by rising prices, but many of them have had to give up some of their after school activities because of employment. In the next decade can clubs and activities compete against the job force? Opening Nina Bell Kathy McCormick 8 — Homecoming Sue Howard Happiness reigns as Donna Raymond accepts the title of 1979 Homecoming Queen from last year ' s queen Pam Zabinski. The date: September 28, 1979. The time: halftime of the Homecoming football game. Six nervous girls and their escorts walk onto the football field. An excited murmur charges through the crowd. Who will be the 1979 Homecoming Queen? Senior Class President A1 Ramirez asked for the envelope containing the winner ' s name. Silence fell over the crowd as A1 shouted, " The 1979 Homecoming Queen is Donna . . . Raymond! " Tears of joy streamed down Donna ' s face as she was crowned Homecoming Queen of 1979 by last year ' s queen Pam Zabinski. " I never expected to win. This is the happiest day of my life! " said Donna at the post-game dance. Homecoming is just one night long, but the memories will last forever. After a hectic week. Homecoming Queen Donna Raymond takes some time out to relax. Freshman attendants: Michelle Moskalick, and Mike Brimer Homecoming Court Escorts: Joe Kuna, Rob Cashen, Ed Chamberlain, Phil Elo, Steve Millard, and Mike Bermingham _ Homecoming — 9 RAY HCND ICIEIIGNS HCMECCMING - aV YGAIDIITip The days before the game were excitement packed as students dressed in zany outfits. Jersey Day kicked off the week on Monday, followed by Gangster Day on Tuesday. Wednesday was Fifties Day, brought back by popular demand. Thursday was Western Day and the week ended traditionally with Red and Grey Day. At the annual assembly on Thursday seniors presented the Miss Gross Pageant, which was won by senior Robert McAfee. Spirits were aroused early Friday afternoon at a pep rally later followed by the Homecoming Parade. Principal, Dr. Timothy F. Brown, presided as Grand Marshal for the first time. The year 1979 proved to be the year of the sophomore as they won both the spirit stick and the best decorated truck stating, “Sophomores Add Life " . Morton ' s brutal victory over Tech, 32-7 gave a glorious ending to this decades last Homecoming. Senior Robert McAfee displays his ' r this years Miss Gross. At a pep assembly, sophomore Donna Niemiec, junior Amy Boland and Shelley Geissendorfer cheer for their classes to win the spirit stick. 10 — Homecoming ••MEMORIES SET TIME MAGIC €E IPIRCM At the beginning of a new decade, what could possibly be more romantic than a look at the past? This year ' s prom treated couples to a dreamy journey down " Memory Lane " on May 2, 1980. The prom site. Wicker Park Pavilion, was decorated in a nostalgic air of an age gone by, presenting a modern time machine effect unequaled by H.G. Wells. Promgoers began to arrive at 7:30 for an evening of dancing, piture taking, and a dinner served promptly at 10 p.m. The night really began to fly as couples were rocketed back to the present by the fast paced music of the after-prom band. The band played until the prom ' s end at 2 a.m. Beaches, amusement parks, and other popular " day-after " prom " hang-outs " were crowded on May 34d. The junior class funded the annual prom with profits from the sale of two year planners, candy, Christmas candles, and sponsoring trips to Old Chicago amusement park. Exhausted after a romantic evening alumnus Dan Padilla Preparations are complete and the music is about to begin as and senior Kalee Sobek head home to get some shut eye. couples enter a night they will remember for years to come. 12 — Prom COMMENCEMENT: IIS IT aV BEGINNING? Commencement: an origin, beginning. So states Funk and Wagnall ' s dictionary. Commencement is a beginning, but it is also an ending. To start over a high school senior must end what he began four years ago. He must leave his friends, his school, and maybe even his home. But what is the graduate starting? What decisions does he face? A Morton graduate may continue his schooling, starting another year in a strange place. Perhaps he will become a working stiff and be forced to support himself. Another graduation will soon be here. An ending . . . and a beginning. Relieved smiles of pride flash across the faces of graduating seniors as they receive those long awaited diplomas. Anxiously awaiting the moment at which they shall receive their diplomas, attentive seniors listen to speeches with mixed emotions after completing four years of high school. 16 — Graduation ICIEMK HEEE WHEN?

Normal everyday teenagers were transformed into metal plated men and ladies fair of old. Circus murals and seven foot playing cards adorned the walls and cardboard crowns served as centerpieces completing the medeival setting of the semi-formal. The annual dance, sponsored by the Student Association, featured the band “Three ' s a Crowd " . The dance was originally scheduled for January 26, but had to be postponed because Morton was hosting the SAT tests that morning and the cafeteria could not be decorated in time for the dance. Student ' s reactions to the postponement varied. " Maybe my date will grow taller by then. " , " I hope we ' re still speaking in February " , and " Will my dress still fit? " . The extra time allowed still others to get up enough courage to ask someone. The long awaited dance finally took place on February 23, and after which most couples went out to a restaurant for a quiet dinner. Taking a break from the excitement of the Inaugural, seniors Jamie Snyder and Jeff Relinski stop to share a moment of peace. — Winter Semi-Formal Wow! Institute! Visions of Animal House captured the minds of students for weeks before going to institutes. Would be institutes dreamed of night long parties and endless days of soaking up the warm summer sun. Much to the students surprise it was a lot of hard work. Students discovered that institutes are really for learning. Basic skills of government were put to practice by Girls and Boy ' s State delegates at Indiana State University in Terre Haute. Delegates were able to vote, attend council meetings, and run their own mini-governments. Dribbling, rebounding, lay-ups, and free-throws occupied the days of students attending Indiana University ' s basketball camp in Bloomington. New techniques, drills, and ways to arouse school spirit were taught to Morton ' s spirit boosters this summer. Varsity Cheerleaders attended Ball State University in Muncie, and the Twirlers attended Smith-Walbridge in Syracuse, Indiana. Effective editing and newspaper layout were taught to Mortonite editors attending the journalism institute at Indiana University in Bloomington. Picking a theme, designing a cover, and critiquing last year ' s book were among the duties occupying the time of Top Hat editors, at St. Mary ' s College in South Bend, Indiana.

GCDSPEU STAGES TAIIE Plays — 27 Top Hat Theatre ' s second production this season was Godspell, a modern musical based on the gospel according to St. Matthew. Godspell is considered a " modern " play due to the upbeat music, outrageous costumes and it ' s 1960 ' s lower east side, New York City style setting. The production takes Jesus Christ out of the " Biblical " age and presents his life in a contemporary style. His disciples are dressed as clowns and act out the stories in the, Bible with the use of song, dance, and pantomime. The character of Jesus is also quite a showman, teaching his disciples with magic tricks and ventriloquism as well as song and dance. The exhilaration of the show takes a serious trend when the character of Judas is introduced. Judas is said to be offered thirty pieces of silver in return for telling the chief priest the identity of the Son of Man. At the time of the betrayal, the " disciples " remove their clown make-up to symbolize the games are over, then the last supper is portrayed. Judas rushes in, seizes Jesus and " nails " him to a ladder representing Christ ' s death on the cross. The music swells with the Lord ' s pain and winds down at his death. The play ends with the disciples singing " Long Live God " and " Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord " as they form a procession to carry the lifeless body of Jesus down the aisle of the auditorium. Following the crucifixion the disciples carry the lifeless body of Christ offstage for burial. Cast members, seniors Loree Cornelison, Bridget Lauerman, Pam Magginnis, and Sue Vrahoretis, take time to relax after completing the final performance. " Good Samaritan " (senior Bridget Lauerman) takes a wounded man (junior John Swanson) to the inn on her " beast of burden " (junior Gary Allen). When you say the word " school " , what do you think of? Naturally classes, studying, and homework come to mind. Sure, those are an important part of school but there is something that you missed. That is CLUBS. It is these clubs that enable students to take a break from all the brainwork. Here at Morton, one has a wide selection of activities to choose from. If you are an animal lover. Zoology Club and Herpetology Club are for you. If your hobbies include taking pictures, the club to join is Photo Club. In this club, you take and compare pictures and work with different equipment. If you have a big mouth, you can join Booster Club or try out for cheerleading. This is just the beginning of the list of clubs here at Morton.

Photo Club not only teaches students how to use cameras and take pictures but also shows them how to develop and print the film. Once a year, Morton ' s Photo Club sponsors a photo contest to show some of the student ' s talents and their ability to work with cameras. " I felt Photo Club helped me a lot by showing me what I had to know about photography, " stated senior Top Hat photographer, Ron Salach. Quill and Scroll is made up of the students on either the Mortonite staff which is Morton ' s newspaper or Top Hat staff which is Morton ' s yearbook. Each year, the Morton students who have participated on either of these staff for two semesters are initiated. This initiation takes place at the banquet at the end of the year. Each inductee holds a lighted candle while reciting the pledge and then extinguishes it. " What is a thespian? " That was a question asked by many of Morton ' s new students this past year. A thespian is a member of the Theatre Guild, such as an actor or actress. It ' s more than just acting. Students can earn points through acting, working on sets, costumes or lighting. It takes twelve points for a senior to become a thespian and fifteen points for an underclass student. For every extra ten points earned, you receive a gold star at the ceremony at the end of the year. " It was a real honor to be elected secretary of the Theatre Guild and I hope this year ' s banquet will be a success, " stated senior Carol Smitka. ©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©© Photo Club: First Row — Eileen Patterson, Michelle Kocoj.

Mrs. Carol Loehrke, choir director, feels this is a good way to wake up in the morning since singing is such a physical activity. At the pop concert this year, a variety of songs were heard. Hit tunes such as " Summer Lovin ' " from the musical " Grease " and the famous Andy Williams song " Moon River " from " Breakfast at Tiffany ' s " , were just two of the many popular songs. This year, students had the opportunity to attend an in-school assembly to hear the Christmas Concert. This type of activity hasn ' t been done in the past, and the response was good.

These students helped out at various activities such as car washes and setting up chairs for the Culture Festival. Choosing spirit days for Homecoming week was one of the first decisions the student association made once school had begun. Jersey day started off the week, followed by Western Day, Fifties Day, Gangster Day, and ended with the traditional Red and Gray Day, on Friday. February 23 was a date most girls looked forward to. It marked the day of the Inaugural, which is a semi-formal dance, to which the girl asks the boy. The theme of this years Inaugural was " Camelot " .

Sign paintings, flowermakings, and the annual Junior Senior Powder Puff game are just a few of the activities that the club gets involved in. Booster Club helps students get into the spirit of things during basketball and football. This year the club sold Homecoming mums in order to raise money for the treasury. This year ' s Pom Pon squad, sponsored by Mrs. Helen Hart, consisted of 20 girls. Captains Nina Bell and Linda Lipkovitch went to a pom pon camp in Florida over their summer vacation for four days, where they learned various routines and new techniques. The girls provided entertainment during football and basketball halftime game shows. Mrs. Hart provided the girls with many different types of exercises to make sure the girls stayed slim. Recognition was given to the students who have varsity athletic awards. This year, the club had 15 girls and in 78, M-club had 12 girls. " I achieved my letter in volleyball, and I ' m really honored for being recognized in M-club, " stated junior Jane Herring. " I think girls should be in M-Club.

Both cheerleaders and twirlers helped with school spirit during the football and basketball games. During this summer, all the twirlers went to Camp Smith Walbridge in Syracuse, Indiana, from July 1-6. They were considered advanced twirlers and won two awards. During the year, the twirlers sold candy. The twirlers meet during second hour, after school, and met everyday during the summer. To make up the routines, all the girls put their ideas together and decide which record to use. The girls twirled the fire batons for Homecoming. The fire is an every year tradition for the twirlers. Having fund raisers such as bake sales, selling rootbeer floats at the Fourth of July Celebration at Hessiville Park, and selling candy were just some of the activities done by the varsity cheerleaders to raise money toward buying new uniforms. Putting hard work into cheerleading, the B- team cheerleaders work four times a week to practice their cheers and chants. This year, selling penants helped the B- team squad buy some uniforms for the warm and cold games. ©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©©© Competition. People thrive on it. Some people even live for it. Morton Senior High School does a good job of competing when it comes to sports. This year our football team was the team to beat. The cross-country team placed first in conference and in sectionals for the first time in the history of Morton. Along with the cross-country team, the volleyball team placed first in their conference. But no matter what the sport, the players at Morton always put forth their best effort and display good sportsmanship. So when it comes to competition, Morton is always in there fighting.

This work paid off as the Governors ended the season with a 7-3 record, the first winning season since 1976. The Govs also placed second in the Lake Shore Conference, the best LSC record since 1977. In the Football O ' Rama, Morton defeated Hammond High and Gavit, making them the only double winners at the O ' Rama. They continued their winning streak by defeating 1979 District I runner up Highland High, 6-3. The winning spell was broken when the Govs lost the next three games to Munster, Fort Wayne Luers, and Hammond High, respectively. Finally Morton broke the monotony by beating East Chicago Washington, 8-0, with a pass late in the third quarter. With the squad consisting of 20 returning lettermen, the team was quite experienced. The seniors led the way. The Homecoming game evened up the record as the Govs crushed Tech, 32-7. Morton ' s touchdowns were scored by seniors Steve Zubrenic, Darin Bensinger, juniors Tony Gresham, and John Hayduk. The following week against Clark, Gresham led the way by carrying the ball 22 times for 120 yards. The upset victory against Noll arose the Govs spirits. Morton, not favored in the game, stomped Noll, 20-0. This enthusiasm continued as the Govs pulled out a last second victory against East Chicago Roosevelt, 14-7. The game was topped off with a pass from Rory Segally to Skip Gyure, with only 41 seconds remaining. Wrapping the season up, the Govs defeated Gavit 16-6 with a fine performance by junior fullback Jeff Schneider who carried the ball 31 times for 110 yards. 52 — Varsity Football Varsity Football — Row 1: Coach Rick Volbrek, Coach Bob Hunt.

To some, there ' s a feeling of satisfaction knowing that all the long, strenuous practices and hard work paid off. To others, it may be rewarding just to know that you tried your very best. All these feelings and many more were present as Morton ' s B-Team squad gained a impressive record of 7-0. One of the most outstanding games of the season was the opener in which Morton went onto gain a 7-6 victory over highly regarded Munster. This lifted team spirit as Morton has not defeated Munster since 1977. Another highlight was the match up between the Governors and Lake Central. The gridmen topped Lake Central out scoring them 13-6, in spite of the last minute scheduling, which prevented them from practicing ahead of time. Deserving credit is the defensive unit, as the defense only allowed a grand total of 12 points in 7 games, an average of just under .6 per game. Defensive stand outs included softies John Keilman and Scott Thompson, and left end Tom Miskovich; tackles Rick Rameriz and Marenis Kansfield; ends Doug Heller and Mike Salapski; Frank Clemens and Jeff Oros, cornerbacks. The offensive unit is also to deserve credit, as their determination enables them to stay and practice longer a couple times a week. Offensive standouts included backs Dennis Zaremba and Tom Ramberg. " I felt the boys matured and developed from game one offensively and defensively and they gave of themselves 100%, not only in game situations, but also in practice.

The score was tied at the end of regulation time, the first overtime, and then the Govs finally yielded at the end of the second extra session 59-57. Another close game took place on January 16. Morton was on the road again, this time at Bishop Noll. This contest was one of the more unusual games in recent history, not because Morton won 49-48 in double overtime, but the Governors ended up with only four players on the floor due to fouls and injuries. “The season was disappointing in many ways, after games I did not FIN15H G-E feel low, but I did not feel high either.

But, despite the conditions that occured, the Gov ' s managed an 8- 11 overall record, and a conference record of 3-5. Later in the season, matters were even worsened by the loss of sophomore Tony Vermejan to varsity action.

The “B " squad compiled a 5-9 overall season as well as being 2-2 in conference. One factor causing some difficulty was that the five regular starters had only been on the floor together for two games, due to illness, injuries, and ineligibility. " The season ' s been very disappointing to all of us, but the reason for our record is obvious with all of the absences,” commented freshman coach Rick Volbrecht. Losing to Merriville Harrison 50-13 in the opening game of the season, the Governors started off with a poor beginning. This was definitely the low point of our season” said Coach Volbrecht. But on the other hand, there have been many positive points. One surely is that all of the Governor games have been close with the exception of the Harrison and East Chicago Washington. An interesting matchup occured on January 8, when the Govs were on the road against a fairly good Griffith squad. Morton beat the Panthers 37-28. High scorers for the " A” squad were Mike Brimer and Rob Hernandez. Brimer and Austin Barret also led in the rebounding category. Dave Gonzalez led " B” squad scorers.

Phil Elo and Scott Lush were starters last year, plus Steve Holmes, Darrin Bensinger, and Roy Perez saw their fair share of action during the 1978-79 season. But, when Morton took the floor for the first two times, they were missing two starters, one due to an injury, and one due to ineligibility and then the entire first half of the season saw the Governors plagued by illness. However, when the Governors came out of the Calumet Holiday Tourney, the half-way point of the season, Morton was sitting on a 5-4 record, the best since the 1976 Sectional Championship Team. Coach Russ Marcinek ' s team brought home the tourney trophy on victories over Portage, 84-63, and Calumet, 60-52. Out of the fi rst 10 games Morton played, four games ended in a two point spread or less. The Govs lost to Hobart 65-64, and beat Lew Wallace 57-55, Crown Point 57-55, and Whiting 46-45.

Top Hat is the class which puts together the annual yearbook, but it is more than just a regular academic class, it is also a fun class. " Going along to take pictures, interviewing teachers for stories, and helping to put the book together is all part of the staff working together. " said Paula Theodore, Top Hat Managing Editor. As the deadline date rolls around, many students are running around trying to finish on time. The edge editors are a big help in this aspect, as they do many of the odd jobs for the section editors.

" This announcement is heard every two weeks. During the two weeks between issues, the students in Mortonite write copy, prepare layouts, and do paste-ups of the paper. Mortonite students start each issue by choosing a story to write. The student finds out the facts by interviewing people connected with the story and then writes the story. Copy editors, Nada Vranic and Cecilia Stojan check the copy for errors. Meanwhile, the page editors are preparing their layouts from the list of assigned stories and Sandy Hlad and Robbin McNash, layout Reporters: Front Row, Jerry Walker, Michael Matura, Rich Patlyek.

EXPERIMENTS EQNELUDE Science classes are not all long hours of listening to boring lectures and taking notes. They are experimenting, examining the results and drawing the right conclusions. Animal behavior is a class that fits that description perfectly. In this class, one studies different animal actions, including those of mice and wolves. Zoology also deals with animals. Students in this class are expected to disect and study the internal organs of animals such as frogs, turtles, cats, and even animals as large as sharks. Zoology is certainly not for those who have weak stomachs. But zoology students are not the only ones who are eager to get their hands on a scalpel; biology students are too. Although the animals used are not quite as large as the sharks, they are still as difficult. Only a small part of biology is disecting. Studying plant growth and making slides are also part of biology. The microscope and the stereoscope are valuable tools to the biologist. Botanists also rely on tools such as the microscope for help in their study of flowers and plants. In botany, which is only offered in the spring, one studies all the parts of a plant; the root, the stem, the leaf and the flower. The botany students go to the Indiana Dunes to study over 30 different types of wild flowers. Learning to make terrariums is also an interesting part of botany. Some people think that taking pictures is interesting, and for them the class to take is photography. In photography, one not only learns how to take pictures, but how to develop them too. Because everybody has different tastes, there are still more science classes, including chemistry and earth science. A new and different class taught this year is drug abuse, which teaches students about various drugs and their effects on people. The results prove that the science classes are interesting, informative and worth experimenting. Two heads are better than one Sophomore Bob Markovich uses this device while studying the body in health and safety class. Juniors Barb Petroski and Ron Kaminski work diligently on a project assigned in zoology class, as junior Kim Kotecki looks on. 92 — Science Sophomore Bob Gollner, with the aid of sophomore Ken George, makes a leaf collection for biology class.

Science — 93 •HELP FIND EAREER5 CLASSES Have you ever considered a job in business after high school? Many people are thinking that way these days and will probably profit greatly from it. Morton offers many different varieties of business classes such as typing, shorthand, notehand, stenography, clerical practice, and bookkeeping or accounting. All of which will help you on your way to a job in the business world. These classes are not all work either. For instance, every year, the shorthand classes go on a field trip to Chicago with Mrs. Hart, usually in the spring. There, they get a tour of the First National Bank of Chicago, see the Board of Trade Building, and other businesses in Chicago. Also, in the shorthand classes girls can earn extra bonus points by wearing a dress one day a week. " This helps promote good grooming habits for the girls which plays an important role in making it in the business world,” stated Mrs. Helen Hart, shorthand teacher. Hart also urges exercising and eating right to keep fit. The girls are rewarded for this by having their names printed in a newsletter that is sent out once a month to parents and faculty. Second semester is spent mostly on discussing different careers and finding the right one for you. Mrs. Hart always has a career and fashion bulletin board set up in her room. In the shorthand classes this year, there are two boys enrolled which shows the turnover of all girl classes to a balance in both. In other classes such as clerical practices Mr. Alexander, Business Department Chairman said, " It is mostly learning the use of different machines which should be helpful if you decide to venture into a career in business. " A few of these machines are the duplicator, mimeography machine, dictaphones, 9 and 10 key adding machines and also learning how to file papers. In typing and personal typing classes, one is required to type out letters, envelopes, and manuscripts. Also, there are time writings to do in which one tries to get a better score each time, with as few errors as possible. Then there are always the fun times when students try to type to the beat and rhythm of music. In the accounting or bookkeeping class, students learn how to balance books and work with figures, which is always helpful in getting a good job. ENGLISH MADE INTERESTING Creative writing is a course for those who like to write compositions and stories. This class is a way of expressing yourself through writing. Composition skills is designed as a review of the basic grammar skills for the non-college bound student. Advanced composition, on the other hand, is designed to perfect writing skills, including research techniques. Debate or forensics is a class for those who enjoy arguing. It is a class in theory and participation in structured argumentation. Then there is the famous mass media class in which students tape television shows and commercials they write themselves. This class is perfect for people who like to be " under the lights. " After students complete the required English 1-4, they may choose from any of the other English electives. Among the electives offered at Morton are american literature, world literature, reading skills and more. As a freshman, students are required to take English 1 and 2. In these classes students are taught basic grammar and sentence construction, such as diagraming. Sophomore year students are enrolled into English 3 and 4, where they give speeches and read short plays and novels. The three different one semester literature classes; american literature, world literature, and modern world literature, are all designed as a preparation for college bound students. American literature is the study of the American national literary heritage, which includes many of the Pulitzer and Nobel prize winners. World and modern world literature puts a greater emphasis on the classics of both the Eastern and Wetern Cultures. 96 — English Senior Steve Klosak uses a controlled reader to help improve his comprehension.

BASICS TflUGtiT Interested in learning more about music, such as musical dictation, time signatures and transpose, then you must be in Mrs, Glenda Kolar ' s music theory class. Students learn the fundamentals of music. They learn to read music fast and easily. This is helpful when they create musical compositions that are original. Ear training is an important practice to teach students different notes. It is usually practiced by listening to the notes on the piano. Sharps and flats are determined by listening to these notes. Once the basics are learned, all of their acquired knowledge is put to use by arranging songs for the band. Music theory is a challenging, one semester course. Music Theory — 99 CHILDREN STUDIED Thought you saw an awfully small freshman walking down the hall the other day, right? Well relax, that was just one of the children brought to school for child development. Each year students in child development are asked to bring in a pre-school age child to study his behavior. With the cost of clothes going up, more girls are taking clothing class. They learn the basics of sewing, and the proper way to use a sewing machine. From this, the girls are able to make their own clothes. Students in foods classes have been learning cooking techniques, practicing them, and then eating the results! Interpersonal relationships gives girls insights to happy marriages. GLASSES FOR FUN The foreign language department at Morton is a very complete one, including three different languages; French, Spanish, and German. In these classes, one is taught to use the language well enough to get along in a different country. Also, Morton has a foreign language club for those who like to learn a little bit about different languages. Foreign language classes are a lot of work as well as a lot of fun. Every year, Herr Dieter Meister takes his German classes on a field trip to Germantown in North Chicago, where they see the German way of life and get to eat some of the delicious German pastries and foods. Foreign Language — 101 EAR ENGINES ARE REBUILT To give knowledge, to teach an occupation, and to interest one in an avocation are the three main goals of the industrial arts department. Mr. Onie Penzato, metals teacher, believes that the industrial arts program is one that people can enjoy and also benefit from by participating in it. In Power Mechanics 1, students spend the first six weeks getting to know their cars. They learned the parts of the car and how to give a car a tune-up. To be knowledgeable consumers, the students study many different guarantees of cars. This should help them in the future when they are buying cars of their own. Power Mechanics 2 is an advanced class. This year, these students rebuilt three car engines.. How to use basic hand tools and machines is one of the first things taught in Woods . Once these machines are demonstrated, each student is expected to use them when doing his projects. Every student makes the same first project so the teacher can determine his capabilities and the degree of difficulty for the next project. Welding and forging are two of the main practices of the students in their first year of metals. Introduction to industrial arts is a class that a student must take before he takes any of the industrial arts classes.

These classes are some of the college- bound math courses offered here at Morton. The classes are here to prepare students for college-type math. Students are still a bit afraid of taking the higher math classes because the courses simply " sound " hard. The classes are designed for those who like to take challenging courses. The more general-type classes are taken by those who just simply want to get by. The general math classes just go over basic mathematics concepts that everyone should know. Some teachers also try to introduce the metric system to students, a system which will come into effect in this country very soon. Classes like geometry and algebra help to teach students how to think. The two-year requirement for math is not always easy to meet after the two years are completed, many students do not take any math classes in their junior and senior years. However, some students choose to go on to take the harder college-prep courses. 104 - Math flDVflNEED P.E. ATTRflETS STUDENTS Along with the regular boys and girls gym classes, a new one was added this year, advanced physical education, taught by Mr. Maurey Zlotnik. The class is scheduled seventh hour and they participate in the same activities as first year P.E. bul at a more advanced level. Advanced P.E. is open to boys and girls, both in one class. Senior Steve Holmes a student in Advanced P.E. commented, " It is a little different than first year P.E. since it is co-ed, but none of the boys seem to mind. " The regular gym classes participate in such activities as basketball, crab soccer, football, gymnastics, square dancing, swimming, tennis, volleyball and many more. The teachers are Miss Hall and Miss Hicks for the girls, and Mr. Hunt and Mr. Zlotnik for the boys. 106 — Gym Gym — 107 While studying in the library, freshman Karen Ondo attempts to complete a term paper for her geography class. UNELE SW M0NEY, AND CULTURES Social Studies — N. pi: a part of a school curriculum ... usually made up of courses in history, government, economics, sociology, and geography. Added to the list of social studies electives second semester was women ' s issues. It was started by Mrs. Jane Hall. The course is divided into three major parts: the history of women in America, issues and problems concerning women today, and choices and challenges that face women today. Contemporary problems is taught by Mr. Don Hodson. “In contemporary problems, we talk about things in detail that a lot of people really wouldn ' t know. Some of the topics we discussed were the tragic childhood of Charles Manson, and why cult leader Jim Jones destroyed a lot of people in Guyana, " stated senior Nada Vranic. y Debbie Vance, and seniors Michelle ford. Jami Snyder, and KaLee Sobek look magazines for articles in economics class. kjp r ' s education class is not as easy as ' one might think as senior Mike Herbert found out last summer during a parallel parking session. mm OftlM f OUCATIOH CAW studentdriver junior Steve Bn Conservation cj b§planting a I YEE BUILDS NEW FITNESS TRAIL Students heading toward the beach to relax and have a good time is a sure sign that school is finally out. Summer is a time to take it easy, but for some students it ' s back t o the books for three more months of school. Summer school consists of economics, government, English, social studies, etc. For the coming freshmen, typing is available, and for some students driver ' s education is offered. If you ' re the one for money, the Youth Conservation Corps employes many students to work around the school grounds. The students worked on such things as planting and watering trees, laying sod, taking care of the Morton Nature Center, and last summer, the Y.C.C. built the " Fitness Trail " . Summer School — 111 Ml I ISIS RECEIVE To become this year ' s DAR award recipient, one had to be nominated in homeroom, and then selected by the teachers from the 18 names submitted. Sue Vrahoretis was selected to represent Morton and take an essay type test involving current events, history, government, and economics questions. Pam Magginis and Paulette Murchek competed with singers from Northwest Indiana to gain acceptance in this year ' s All State Choir.

Titles of Mr. Football, Miss Volleyball, Mr. Tennis and Mr. Cross Country were given to honored sports players at a Booster Club dance. Rich Nallenweg, Renee Vermejan, Bill Golon, and A 1 Frost (respectively) were chosen by the student body in homeroom ballots. Daughter ' s of the American Revolution Citizenship Award Sue Vrahoretis 112 — Awards Awards — 113 NEW PRINCIPAL SHAPES UP MORTON Look around you. Do you notice anything different in the school environment this year? You should! Many changes were made this year at Morton. One major reason for these changes is Morton ' s new principal. Dr. Timothy F. Brown, who replaced Dr. W.W. Becker this year. Dr. Brown has a long list of credentials. He was an English and Humanities teacher in Indianapolis, an administrator at Dyer Middle School, and supervisor of instruction for three Hammond Public High Schools. Dr. Brown has made many alterations in the curriculum this year. The big problem in the parking lot has been solved and you won ' t be seeing any more beer cans lying around because of stricter enforcement of the rules on lunch hours and at dances. Also, each student was assigned a parking space. If a student parks in the wrong space, they risk getting their car towed away at their own expense. All in all. Dr. Brown has done a fine job of cleaning up Morton. The administration, faculty and student body were saddened by the loss of the Superintendent of Hammond City Schools, Dr. Willard Congreve, who passed away on November 29, 1979. A moratorium to Dr. Congreve is on page 19 in this book. Two other new faces have joined the Governor counseling staff this year. Ms. Marilyn Bercik has replaced Miss Judith Anderson, and Miss Wilma Clair has taken Mrs. Marsha Weiss ' s place. The counseling staff has come up with a new policy for schedule changes this year. If a student wants a schedule change, that student must write a letter explaining the change needed and get the letter signed by their parent or guardian. The counselor then looks at the letter and decides whether or not the student should receive the change. This method has avoided much havoc in the counseling department. Seven new teachers have joined the Morton teaching staff. They are Mr. Stanley Bobowsky, Mrs. Elaine Craig, Mr. Jeff Hayden, Mrs. Colantha Hill, Ms. Ramona Engle, Mr. Tim Margerum, and Mr. Tom Schaefer. Mrs. Mikler is the new paraprofessional, and Mrs. Francis Michalak is the new school nurse. These new teachers were a welcome addition to the MHS teaching staff. 114 — Administration Mr. Ernest Alexander Mr. William Archer Mr. Glen Bacus Mr. Michael Bandura Business Science English Business Dept.

" Comments like these can be heard around school as seniors go to their last homecoming, football and basketball games, and their " last dance. " Remember when we were freshmen and our class won the spirit stick? Sophomore year dragged on and we could not wait to be juniors. And, of course, junior year when the junior powder puff team beat the seniors 12-0. What a night! Now at last the long awaited senior year. Everyone looks forward to it, yet we also are hesitant when we think of leaving Morton forever. But even after we leave the halls of Morton, we will not leave our memories. They will always be with 126 — Seniors — June brings sadness for some relief for others Four years ago, a group of frustrated and nervous frehmen appeared at the doors of Morton High. At first, timid of the size of the school, we walked along trying our best to stay out of the way of the seniors. Now, before we knew it, those four years had passed and we were the seniors laughing at the freshmen, remembering that we had been the same way. Yes, as we look back on those years, each one of us will hold memories that can never be erased from the heart. The good times of football games, dances, and the not-so-good times of term papers, detentions, and homework. We came into this school a group of indecisive young teenagers, and as we leave, hopefully, we will have grown up. We will be more sure of ourselves, our lives, and our future. We won ' t even be able to thank the countless number of teachers and friends who have helped us along the way. The climb to the top was a hard, demanding one and many times we wanted to quit, but the realization that without the education we have received, we would never be able to let our lives amount to anything. As June approaches closer some of us are filled with sadness at the thought of being finished with school. Although college may be the plans for some, it can never be as high school was. The close friends we had in high school usually don ' t attend the same college, and as much as one would like to continue friendships, sometimes they must end in order for new friendships to begin. Letting go of your childhood and stepping into the adult world is something we all must face. It is sad to think it is almost completed now but it is a good feeling to know that we have learned enough to start out as young adults in the world. High school has given us a base to start on, something which has taught us a very important factor in life — responsibility. It taught us to set goals for ourselves and if it was what we wanted that we would have to work our very hardest. This will be the last time I will see all the seniors with such a serious expression on their faces. Each of their minds wondering how those years could have gone by so fast. It seems we had only just begun to become sure of ourselves and now we ' re being pushed out the doors into that wide world of adulthood. And finally my name is called and I walk with my head held high and I look around to see all those proud parents patiently waiting to see their own son or daughter walk up the aisle with jelly knees. Now with diploma in my hand I turn my tassle and realize it ' s over and slowly a tear slips from my eye and rolls down my cheek. So, we the class of 1980, shall step out into the world and put our best foot forward. It will truly be the dawning of a new decade after twelve years of preparing. We will be the adults of tomorrow, the educators of the future.

Traditionally it is a great rivalry both mentally and physically between the juniors and seniors. To play in the Powder Puff game the girls had to make sacrifices such as practicing long hours after school or at night. In order to be eligible to play in the powder puff game, the girls had to attend six practices, possess a C average or better, and not have any unexcused absences. Also, this year a teacher had to be present at each practice. The preparation culminated Friday, November 2, with all the girls wearing their jersey-to school. After weeks of practice, it was all over. The seniors won 18-6. Senior Sandy Hlad scored two touchdowns. Senior Renee Vermejan scored one touchdown as did junior Tina Sknerski. The seniors first touchdown of the game came in the first quarter as Sandy Hlad scored on a reverse. Their second score came in the third quarter as Janee Babbit tnrew a 30 yoia pass to Hlad.

These scary witches and goblins aren ' t for real they ' re just seniors from the Top Hat class trying to have some unusual fun on Halloween. As the Homecoming parade returned it was necessary for seniors to give spare time to flowermakings at senior homes. Don ' t shoot! Seniors Debbie Riley. Paula Theodore. Pam Marlow and Mike Herbert show their spirit by dressing up for Western Day. Studying, getting involved, and having a good time are the three essential parts of high school. All three are needed in order for high school to be the best years of our lives. This year the freshmen were just getting acquainted with the new surroundings and new teachers. All the freshmen met many new friends and students. The sophomores started the year off right by winning the annual homecoming spirit stick. They won the spirit stick by participating at the football games and the homecoming pep rally. The juniots spent most of their time raising money and working on the prom. The prom was at Wicker Park Memorial Club House in Highland. As the year comes to an end, the juniors anxiously await their senior year. 154 — Underclass Underclass — 155 Class of “81” plans prom " Will we have enough money? " " When will the band get here? " " Will everyone have a good time? " These were some of the questions that were asked by many juniors as they prepared for the annual Junior-Senior Prom at the Wicker Park Club House. With the help of the two junior sponsors. Miss Diana Vasquez and Mr. Michael Harris, three years of fund raising activities were a success. " All the hard work that was put into the fund raising activities really paid off. " stated junior class secretary. Barb Sertic. This year ' s activities included car washes during the summer with calander and candy sales during the year. Although the juniors were unsuccessful in the annual Powder Puff game, they did obtain first place in the Homecoming float competition. Mr. Michael Harris, junior class sponsor commented, " The small group of juniors who participated in class activities are very enthusiastic and hard working students who are capable of getting the job done.

They didn ' t have a class sponsor. But two generous teachers came to the rescue of the sophomore class, Mr. Dan Mayerik and Mrs. Shirley Rotenberg. Sophomore year is a time to look at schedules and requirements that need to be fulfilled for graduation. It also means the privilege of choosing a class ring. Fund raising activities kept the sophomores very busy. During the summer, car washes took place at neighborhood gas stations. Key chains and stuffed animals were sold at the beginning of the year in addition to the windshield scrapers that were sold during the winter months. Selling carnations on Valentines Day and corsages on Mothers Day also aided the class in their fund raising activities. The sophomores have been a very responsible class and they work together to achieve their goal. Mrs. Rotenberg stated " This is a very good class that has many enthusiastic, hard working students and I think the class will be a very successful group. " Homecoming week was very special to the sophomore class this year. During this week, they showed their creativity by winning the number one decorated truck in the Homecoming parade. The sophomores also exhibited their school spirit by winning the annual Booster Club Spirit Stick. " Because of the hard working students in the sophomore class it has been a successful year, " commented sophomore class secretary, Marie Dankanich.

Many anxieties go along with being a freshman, such as wondering if you will be accepted at a big school or getting lost and walking into the wrong classroom. But as freshmen adjust to high school life they find it full of new experiences. Meeting new friends, joining clubs and Homecoming festivities were a brand new part of a freshman ' s life. Homecoming is extra special because two freshmen were elected as Homecoming attendants. To help the freshmen in acheiving their goals are class sponsors Mr. Jeff Hayden and Mrs. Mona Sherman. “The freshmen class is just getting organized and hopefully we will be working hard at earning money for the Junior-Senior Prom, " stated class sponsor, Mr. Hayden.

A wide variety of places are available in Hessville. If a student is really hungry at lunch, he does not have to settle for cafeteria food. Within walking distance are Bonanza, McDonalds, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. For the students fortunate to drive, Arbys and Wendys are close by. In the clothing department, this area has an abundance of stores, such as Woodmar Shopping Center, The Gap, and Goodeal Pant Co., just to name a few. For ordinary household items or groceries. Van Tils, Jewel, Ribordy Drug, Fifield Pharmacy, and Lindy ' s True Value Hardware take care of the problem. So as one can see, Hessville is well equipped with business ' to serve the people. 4 180 — Advertisers Advertisers—181 PRIME MINISTER RESTAURANT 8601 SO. INDIANAPOLIS BLVD.

Thanks for the memories, but it ' s time to be moving on. We hope the 1980 edition of the TOP HAT will not only bring back memories but will also serve as a catalyst in helping us achieve our goals in this new decade. I guess every editor, in their closing comments, tries to relate to the school the tremendous amount of hard work it takes to publish a yearbook. And no matter what I say, the only way you can fully appreciate the dedication and work is to be a part of the staff. In simple terms we collectively spent over 10,000 hours producing this book. Contrary to popular belief, they were not all fun. Many hour were filled with frustration and just plain hard work ... but certainly, now that it ' s all over, it was worth it! A big thank you to all the staff! You were great to work with and you can be proud of your accomplishments. Each of the 60 staff members know that they have had a part in the designing and content of the book. It is truly a unique product. A note of special thanks goes to Mr. Bob Henning, our yearbook representative, for helping us make it through the year. Also to our advisor, Mr. Scott Markley, for his continued support and for his little pushes to keep the ball rollin ' when the work slowed down. Thank you Bodie photographers Harry Dudzik and Jerry Misiewich for the bulk of the pictures in this book and also Andros Studios for underclass pictures. I hope you will enjoy reading this edition of TOP HAT from time to time as you live through the " dawning " years of the 80 ' s.
