A wards-17 AMERICANS FREED AFTER 444 DAYS On November 4, 1979, 66 American diplomats were token hosroge by Iranian militant students in Tehran, Iran. This action set off a world wide concern for the safe release of these Americans. Why did the Iranians capture these Americans? Decouse the Ayatollah Khoemeini, along with the militants, demanded that the exiled Shah of Iran be returned home to face " revolutionaryjustice. " America was the Shah ' s home after he feld Iran in fear of a rebillion. In January, the Shah was treated for cancer and in late July the Shah passed away,- his impact to be resolved by President James Earl Carter. Throughout the ordeal, President Jimmy Carter had taken action specifically intended to retaliate against the Iranians. The President ordered Iranian students to report to the Immigration and Naturalization Service for visa checks and also validated all visas issued to Iranians for future entry in the United Stares. In addition, Carter froze Iranian assets before Iran could withdraw its money from the U.S. banks. Prior to Thanksgiving, two black marines and a woman were released. Shortly thereafter, 10 more hostages were sent home in rime for o Thanksgiving reunion with their families. In several instances, the United Nations met to no avail, namely because of the countries of Iran and Russia. Then in 1980 came one of the most humiliating episodes in United Stares military history — failure of a commando mission sent to rescue the hostages. Drawn up by President Carter, the April 25 mission failed because three helicopters had been grounded by malfunctions. Eight American servicemen died when a helicopter crashed into an airplane. Ironically, they met their deaths after the mission was called off. On the 251st day of the crises, Richard Queen, a vice consul or the embassy, was released because " he needed more sophisticated medical care . " Queen ' s illness was later diagonosed as multiple sderosis. Although many talks concerning the hostages rook place since the takeover, new hope arose from a new round of talks on January 18, 1981. These talks, held at the Algerian Foreign Ministry, were efforts to conclude negotiations to end the 14-month hosroge crises by trading billions of dollars in frozen Iranian assets for 52 American captives. The U.S. ream led by Deputy U.S. Secretary of Store Warren Christopher and the Algerian officers, who acred as intermediaries, worked continuously through the night. Agreement with Iron was reached the following day, January 19, but Iran ' s chief hostage negotiator said the flight to freedom awaited official word that 9 billion dollars had been transferred to the Dank of England. This official word was received the following day, January 20, 1981, the 444rh day of captivity for the 52 Americans. At 10.30 a.m., Chicago rime, the hostages had taken off on the first leg of their long-delayed journey home. Desides o landing in Athens, Greece, where the jet was refueled, the hostages ' next stop was Algeria. There they were to board an American jet and then travel to their " home” for the next five days, an American Military Hospital, in Weisbaden, West Germany. Then finally, at about 3 p.m. on Sunday, January 25, 1981, the 52 Americans first stepped on U.S. soil. After landing at Stewart Airport in Newburgh, New York, the former hostages went with their families to the West Point Military Academy. The nation ' s official welcoming celebration was held on January 27 at Andrews Air Force Dase in surburban Maryland. The festivities or Andrews were followed by on elaborate ceremony at the White House. It was now a fact that the entire nation shored in the joy for the safe return of the hostages. A yellow ribbon became the national symbol; only one of the factors which helped unify the United Stares. HAMMOND UNLOADS WASTE The City of Hammond was found responsible for discharging pollution in Lake Michigan during the latter parr of the post summer. The Environmental Protection Agency said the discharge forced Chicago beach closures last summer between August 6 and November 1. The EPA sued the Hammond Sanitary District for damages of $10,000 for every rime it violated pollution laws, as it was found to be the main polluter. High concentrations of bacteria entered a well beneath the station, due to an unwanted connection between storm and sanitary sewers. The pumping station discharged rhe liquid to the lake. The U.S. District Court of Chicago is going to ensure that action is taken to seal this unwanted connection. The Metropolitan Sanitary Disrrict of Chicago was responsible for beach dosings from July 21 through rhe 23. 16 National LOCAL DEMOCRATS SHUT OUT REPUBLICANS Democrats maintained their hold on Lake County Government by winning oil five county government races in November, 1980. Former Hammond City Judge Frank Srodoto defeated Joseph Amodeo for Second District Lake County Commissioner, while Rudy Bartolomei topped Allen Evans in the race for Third District County Commissioner. COUNTY In other county races, Coroner Albert Willardo and Recorder William Dielski Jr. won second terms, while Surveyor Steve Manich was elected to a fifth term. In addition, four Democratic county judges were elected without Republican opposition. Lorenzo Arredondo was elected to the Lake County Circuit judgeship. Lake County Court Judges Nicholas Shiralli and Orval Anderson were re¬ elected to their small daims post, while Steven Dielok was elected to succeed Arredondo os judge of the county ' s third seat. An estimated 5,000job seekers stormed the Inland Employment office on Wednesday, January 21 after reading in the Hommond Times that applications would be given our on January 21, 22, and 23. Even though general labor applications were not distributed rill 8:30 a.m. that same morning, many people began lining up outside Inland ' s employment office at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, camping over night in order to get the applications. This was the first rime since February of 1980, that Inland was giving our applications for general labor positions. Republican Dan Quale defeated incumbent Senator Birch Bayh, a Democrat, in the election on November 4. Bayh, who is also a liberal, was seeking an unprecendenred fourth term. Democratic Representative Adam Benjamin, easily won his third term turning bock Republican Douglas Harkin. Indiana Lr. Gov. Robert Orr will lead the stare for the next four years. His running mare, and the stare ' s next lieutenant governor, is Republican John Murz. STATE The three Lake County Superior Court judges up for retention on a non-partisan ballot were kept on the payroll. Judge Darlene Wanda Mears pulled the most votes for retention. For the Indiana Senate, Ralph Poresra, a Republican from Hammond, defeated Mathias Kerger in the second district. Applications were for future openings only, nor existing jobs. An Inland spokesman said the applications would only be filed for future reference. When distribution of the application began, the crowd damaged the exterior of the building, o fence along one side of it, and o gate between a parking lor and a driveway. Five person were injured during several incidents of pushing and shoving. All were treated at local hospitals and released. Applications were distributed the following two days without a disturbance. NATIONAL Ronald Wilson Reagan became the 40th President of the United Stares with his landslide win over Jimmy Carter in the November 4th election. Reagan and Carter ran their campaign with the antics of Independent candidate John Anderson in the baGk of their minds. Although Anderson was excluded from the " big debate " , he did win five percent of the vote. Despite predictions in various polls, the margin of victory was quire large as Carter claimed victories in only seven stares and rallied 49 electoral votes compared to Reagan s 489 electoral votes. Reagan and running mare George Bush lead from the earliest returns and it quickly became clear that their rruimph was a prelude to a sweeping shift in American political power. For the first rime in 26 years, the Republicans gained control of the Senate as they captured 10 Democratic Senate sears. The upper house now contains 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats. On January 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as President of the United States. This event, however, was nor the main concern of the nation. For it was on this same day that the 52 American hostages were finally released from Iron. IN UIUCKT Hammond Police Officer Larry Pucalik was fatally shot at the Holiday-Inn South on November 14, 1980. Pucalik, 33, had 7 years of service with the Hommond Police Department.

Students Experiment, Explore, Work Together The Chemistry Club benefits members by giving them an idea of the available job opportunities involving the chem¬ istry field. The Chem Club also gives members a chance to socialize with other students who have an interest in chem¬ istry. The group, sponsored by Dr. Mary Pettersen, went to Inland Steel in December to view the chemical labs, and visited Amaco labs in Whiting to observe chemical testing. At the beginning of the school year, Chem Club mem¬ bers sponsored a fish bowl toss at the International Culture Festival to raise funds. In the future, the club hopes to sponsor projects such as collecting aluminum cans and newspapers for recycling. The Physics Club, sponsored by Mr. David Lindsey, en¬ ables students to explore physical phenomena that would be impossible to observe during class. The additional study and performing of experiments expands the club members ' knowledge and interest in physics. Club members attended a field trip to Yerke ' s Observa¬ tory in Wisconsin to observe the world ' s largest refracting telescope, and went on a camping trip in April to study astronomy. The Physic s Club also raised money by selling doughnuts and raffle tickets. The Electronics Club, sponsored by Mr. Joel Romero, gives students the opportunity to work with electrial equipment. Students are able to share their interests in electrical projects by working on projects together. Most members join the Electronics Club after participating in electronics class. 30 Physics Club Chem Club Electronics Club Quill and Scroll-Front Row: Fatima Yoldash, Diane Fross, Lynn Nicksic, Beth Saculla, Shelley Geissendorfer, Kim Hantz.

Organizations Honor, " Focus " On Interests The Photo Club, sponsored by Mr. Dieter Meister, gives students a chance to advance their skills in photography, whether the student is of the novice, intermediate, or advanced class. Members are not required to take a pho¬ tography class to belong to the club, but most club mem¬ bers find that photography class is helpful and further de¬ velops their skills. Many club members have gone on to be photographers for the school paper, yearbook, and local photo establishments. The club offers a training schedule for people who are not familiar with using a camera. The trainers, who are club officers and more experienced members, work with the students in explaining and demonstrating the operation of the equipment. Once the trainees have enough knowledge of camera operation, they are tested, and are then allowed to use the equipment on their own if they " pass " the test. Because photo chemicals and papers are exp ensive. Photo Club members were busy with fund raisers this year. Club members also took passport pictures for students, teachers, and other community members travelling over¬ seas. Photo contests as well kept the group occupied this year. Club members took part in the National Schoolastic Photo Contest, co-sponsored by Kodak, and an inter-club contest during the spring. Quill and Scroll is an honorary organization for members of the Mortonite or Top Hat staffs, who have been on staff for at least two semesters.

Association ' Keeps Up With Annual Traditions If you ever wondered what was going on in room 306, at the end of the hall, you should take a closer look. At first glance you will notice desks, then students. Then you will notice some tables and a couch and-paint and old Inaugural decorations? By now you will have realized that this is the Student Association Office, where Student Association members get school activities rolling. Before the school year started, the association, sponsored by Mr. Mike Damiano, was working hard to raise funds. Saturday afternoons during the summer were spent washing cars and advertising with " car wash " posters at the gas station. The hard work payed off as profits accumulated. Also in the summer, association members donated their time to working at Freshman Orientation, where they introduced Morton to incoming students with a tour of the school. As in the years past, students in the association worked at the annual Culture Festival. Members were there to set up at the beginning, clean up at the end, and do various jobs in between. Soon after the Culture Festival, the association was making Homecoming plans, starting with the planning of " Spirit Week " . Members decided on 50 ' s, Western, Jersey and Hat, Clash, and Red and Gray days as " Spirit Week " days. The association also sponsored the Homecoming dance, featuring the group " Strider " . " Atlantis " was the theme of the association ' s Inaugural Ball, on November 15th. Members transformed paper, paint, and styrofoam into sea creatures which turned the cafeteria into an underwater tale for that special evening. 32 Student Association Stage Crew-Front Row: Chuck Hartlerode, Raul Lozano, Kevin Allen, Sam Polito.

Club Members Construct; Share Common Interests Morton plays and other productions might be impossible without the aid of the Stage Crew, who is literally " behind the scenes " . The crew, sponsored by Mr. Donn Edwards, builds sets and takes care of lighting for Morton plays, and band and choir concerts. They also prepare sets for groups that rent the auditorium stage, such as private dance groups or university tour groups. Stage Crew members are also in charge of maintaining the equipment. Any person with an interest in preparing sets can be a member of the Stage Crew, who meet in class and outside of school on Saturdays and evenings. The word Thespian, coming from the Creek poet Thespis of the 6th Century B.C., today means a person who participates in theater. The organization of Thespians, sponsored also by Mr. Edwards, is an honorary group of students who participate in theater, whether they build sets, sew costumes, or perform in student productions. Students earn points through these activities and are eligible to become a Thespian when 15 points are accumulated. The induction ceremony for Thespians was in the Spring of 1980 on the auditorium stage. After the ceremony, the new Thespians attended a reception along with their parents, faculty members, and other students active in the theater. Chess Club members started out the school year building experience and confidence in their chess games by playing one another at Monday meetings. The group, sponsored by Mr. Don Huts, hopes to participate against other schools in chess tournaments throughout the state.

Freshman Cheerleaders-Bottom: Donna Harakal, Angie Keutzer, Ann Thomas. Middle: Cindy Batliner. Top: Cathy Williams. Cheerleaders Increase Skills At Summer Camp The cheerleading squads were devoted to firing up the crowds and getting the spectators to join in on the cheers at Morton athletic events. Varsity squad member Lori Woodward commented, " I think Morton ' s cheering sec¬ tion has really improved this year. The Pom Pon girls and the Lettergirls have been a great help to the cheerleaders. " The varsity, juniors-varsity, and freshman squads cheer for their respective teams at football and basketball games. The girls were out raising funds before the school year began, having car washes and bake sales, and selling cheese and sausage. During the school year, the varsity cheer¬ leaders sold Reese ' s Peanut Butter Cups, and Krunch and Almond Bars to students. Squad members also co-spon¬ sored an after-school volleyball game between the faculty and the varsity volleyball team. Striving to do their best, the girls could be seen practic¬ ing after school every day during the fall, and practicing every Tuesday and Thursday during the rest of the school year. The varsity cheerleaders got their start in August, when they attended a five-day camp at Indiana University in Bloomington. The girls learned new cheers, cheer tech¬ niques, chants and partner stunts. Some changes were made in the varsity squad this year. This year was the first year for having a sophomore on the varsity squad, and it was also the first year the squad con¬ sisted of seven members. The girls stuck with the tradition of the ' ' governor mascot ' ' , with a different cheerleader wearing the mascot uniform at every game. Pom Pons Revise Rules; Twirlers Throw Sparks Developing and encouraging school spirit is the purpose of the Pom Pon squad, as stated in their new constitution. The new constitution revised rules which resulted in a smooth running year and many new ideas. The squad adopted the name of " Governorettes " , and also elected officers. With the new addition of officers, work was divid¬ ed up, and activities ran more efficiently. The new consti¬ tution also stated special requirements it takes to be a Pom Pon girl. Ms. Helen Siukola, Governorette sponsor, said that the enforcement of rules is necessary for the girls to put effort into their performances, and effort results in a top notch squad. With the aim of improving skills, squad members attend¬ ed camps at Indiana and Ball State Universities during the summer. The Governorettes sold candy, had car washes, and sponsored a booth at the Little Red School House Festival, which enabled them to buy new uniforms. Practic¬ ing with the band every day also kept their summer days busy. Ms. Siukola feels that this has been a successful year due to the effort put forth by each girl, and commented, " I ' ve never had so much cooperation as I ' ve had this year " . Although the Twirlers had only two members this year, they successfully completed their season. They added vari¬ ety with various routines to basketball and football game halftimes. Spark was added to Homecoming night with a fire baton routine. Mrs. Karen Colins, Twirler sponsor, stated, " I think the girls are very fine twirlers and work very well together. They put on a fine demonstration when they perform " .

They organized a formal cheerblock and fifteen lettergirls. This idea was put into effect over the summer. The girls who spelled Morton Governors included Patty Axtman, Sheri Einbinder, Theresa Bell, Sherry Frizzel, Maureen Patterson, Michelle Bartoszek, Roberta Mick, Sue Kielbasa, Chris Sandlin, Lori Brown, Laura Marosi, Nancy Magurany, Karen Kwandras, captain Sandy Knezvich and Joanne Lukas. Just as cheerleaders, the lettergirls have red sweaters and individual letters, and red derbys which say " Morton Govs. " The lettergirls practiced every Wednesday with the cheerleaders to improve their routine. The lettergirls also have a set of rules to obey. They must have a " C " average or better, no D ' s or F ' s in conduct or effort, and the girls were allowed to miss only two football games and three basketball games or she would be replaced by an alternate. The lettergirls also tried to attend all the girls ' volleyball an d basketball games to help boost the spirit. The Booster Club also organized a cheerblock which consists of Booster Club members who are not lettergirls. Those girls also had an outfit which consisted of a Morton Governor T-shirt and a red derby. Next year ' s requirements for lettergirls will include being a sophomore, junior, or senior, and writing an essay on ' Why you would like to be a Morton Governor lettergirl. " This year, the Booster Club provided a stereo for the school from the club ' s funds. It is used to make study halls a little more exciting. Booster Club also sponsored the annual Mr. Football dance. There, they awarded Aaron Soto, Mr. Baby and Mr. Tennis; Jane Herring, Miss Baby and Miss Volleyball. Tony Gresham was awarded Mr. Football and Frank Johnson obtained the Mr. Cross Country award. 36 Booster Club Juniors " Bite The Dust " The annual Powder Puff game is not just a regular flag football game, it is a rivalry game between the seniors and the juniors. To be able to participate, the girls must be a member of Booster Club, have a C average or better, and have no unexcused absences. This year the Powder Puff game took place on September 17. There was a little more spirit this year, as the seniors chose " Another One Bites The Dust, " as their theme song. The juniors showed their spirit by adding Pam Boilek ' s dog, Max, as their mascot. The first touchdown came on the fourth play of the game when Barb Sertic scored on a double reverse. The second touchdown was scored by Beth Saculla on another double reverse. Fighting back, the juniors scored a touchdown on a run by Sue Vermejan. In quick response senior Shelley Geisssendorfer scored six more points on a long pass. The juniors still had hope as Sue Vermejan scored yet another touchdown, but it wasn ' t enough. The seniors won 18-12. This year, to liven up halftime, the seniors introduced Morton ' s Pom Pon boys, which were seniors Aaron Soto, Dan Churilla, Tom Dujan, Bob Seibold, Mike Chance, John Marosi, Alex Vermejan, Nick Boyan, Mike Holper, John Weis and Ron Fary. They performed to the beat of " Macho Man. " There was also an active participation by seniors Joe Zubrenic, Dave Gearman, Kevin Laurion and Gary Allen, along with juniors Will Ramirez and Jeff Wilson, who acted as cheerleaders for their respective teams. This year ' s Powder Puff coaches were seniors Jeff Jusick, Mike Riffle, Jeff Madison, John Keilman, Ed Flernandez, and Brian Adams, and juniors Mike Salapski, Ken Paquin, Marenis Kansfield, Bob Markovich, Dan Schallenkamp, Jim Boland, Jim Joseph and Will Ramirez.

NHS is a select group of students who are recognized for their participation in activities and an overall good character, as well as an outstanding grade point average. In March of 1980, each senior with a 3.2 grade point average, and each junior with a 3.5 grade point average received an NHS application. These students listed all community and school activities in which they participated during high school. The applications were turned in and reviewed by the faculty, who chose the NHS members. The students chosen were then inducted into the National Honor Society at a ceremony in the auditorium. After the ceremony, NHS members and their parents attended a small reception. Through the months of October and April, members of the National Forensic League kept their time well- occupied with several speech and debate competitions. The 20 debaters in NFL this year made this year ' s team the largest team ever. The group, sponsored by Mr. Doug Fix, travelled to various schools in Indiana, averaging two competitions a week. The NFL participated in three different league divisions; the Calumet Forensic League division, the Indiana High School Forensic League division, and the National Forensic League division, which holds the season ' s three final tournaments. Varsity debater, Junior John Holland, commented, " We had an excellent season this year, and with three of the top four varsity debaters returning next year, we are looking forward to an even better season.

This year the Folk Club, sponsored by Mrs. Jan Gillard, began with a poster campaign, advertising with posters throughout the school building. To improve their guitar techniques, members worked with each other and listened to a folk music tape from Chicagofest. Folk Club members hope to print a folk music songbook that was started last spring. A hayride and a horseback riding trip are some activities also being planned. Not all members must know how to play the guitar. Many students have participated by working at the concession stands and selling tickets for Folk Club coffee houses. Future Educators in Action helps students who are interested in a teaching career to get some practical experience. This year, FEA members visited Scott School to tutor students in various subjects. FEA member Robin Hansen stated, " Through the experience of tutoring, I have expanded my skills and interests " . Members participated in Education Hospitality Day at Indiana University Northwest, where they learned what I.U. has to offer to future teachers. Home Economics Club members were busy throughout the year, working on projects that are useful in homemaking and other personal interests. The girls had a Mother-Daughter supper in early December, serving pizza and salad, and observed a macrame demonstration. Beauty experts visited the girls during the year, giving make-up and hair style demonstrations.

The Zoology Club is an organization for anyone interested in caring for, and working with, small animals. This year, the Zoology Club composed a booklet on how to care for, handle, and deal with animals as pets. The club also took a trip to the Field Museum in Chicago, where members studied prehistoric animals. To be a Caving Club member, one should enjoy exploring and crawling through dark and dirty places. Members of the Caving Club went on several caving trips, where members explored and cleaned out caves. " To be a caver one should be tough, rugged, and not mind getting dirty, " stated Caving Club sponsor Mr. Robert Weiss. " Caving was a great experience, I really enjoyed it, " exclaimed Senior Kelly Walsh. The Cavers strictly obey the Caving Motto, " We kill only time, leave only footsteps, and take only pictures. " The Herpetology Club teaches student how to handle, feed, and care for reptiles. The Club also went hunting for snakes and other reptiles. Members also saw several private collections of reptiles. 40 Zoology Caving Herpetology A. V.

Travel Club Takes To The Snow Morton ' s Travel Club visited Woodside Ranch in Mautson, Wisconsin again this year, where members enjoyed snowmobiling, skiing, sledding and horseback riding. Members of The Travel Club also went to the Chicago Bears football game against Cincinnati, shopped at Water Tower Place in Chicago, and had a taste of Japanese food. The Club also threw a Halloween party at a senior citizen nursing home. To help pay for trips and materials, the Travel Club sold Carmel and Crunch chocolate bars. To be a member of the Audio Visual Club, one must go through a training period, and at the end of that period the canidate must take a written and oral test on handling the A. V. Club equipment. The student must also have a " C " average. Each year the Club has a Christmas and splash party, where old members initiate new members. At the end of each year, the members take a camping tri p to Lemmon Lake, in Cedar Lake, Indiana. " Being in the A. V. Club has been a priveledge to have been able to serve my fellow students and teachers, " stated Junior Rod Elish. A. V. Club member, junior Rod Elish, feels that it has been a privilege to take part in A. V. Club activities, serving the teachers and students. Travel Club, A.V.

Mortonite Editors Provide Features, Sports, Editorials Every two weeks an announcement comes over the inter¬ com for students to pick up Mortonites in room 238. Stu¬ dents hurry through the halls to avoid the rush of the stu¬ dents picking up the paper. Before the Mortonite can be printed, staffers have editor meetings, where the staff decides which stories should be written. Then staffers gather beats which are later trans¬ formed into stories. Pictures have to be taken and developed on time. Then staffers have to arrange the page layouts, finish headlines, and make sure everything is correct. Finally, the paper is sent to the Calumet Press for printing. The job of the Managing editor, Tom Miskovich, was writ¬ ing editorials and making sure that the staff met their dead¬ lines on time. Copy editor. Sue Bardoczi, checked over the staff ' s copy and corrected any errors. " Working on the Mortonite was a great experience, The students, faculty, and especially the staff all contributed to make the Mortonite a first rate publication. I would person¬ ally encourage any individual to enroll in this class, and be exposed to a professional environment as taught and exem¬ plified by Mr. Scott Mark ley, " stated Managing editor Tom Miskovich.

McBride, Lana Kaiser, Lynn Niclcsic, Lori Brown, Barb Top Hat Staff Sums Up Year ' s Events Combine two classes of yearbook editors, advisor Mr. Scott Markley, and a lot of work, and the result is the completion of the annual Top Hat yearbook. The process of creating a yearbook begins with the selection of a theme, or an idea that ties in with school life. The editors must carry out the theme throughout the book. The cover design is then chosen, and the layout designs for the pages are begun. One or two editors are assigned U each section of the book, and are responsible for the page design, copy, headlines, the cropping of pictures, and anything else which will appear on the pages in their section. Editors must complete an assigned number of layouts for each deadline so that copies of the layouts can be sent to the printer. The printer returns the proofs so that the staff can make any necessary corrections. The proofs are sent back for the final printing of the yearbook, which becomes a collection of events enabling students to remember the school year in years to come. The creaton of the yearbook also calls for cooperation and ambition of staff members. Members must be willing to stay after school and to devote study halls, lunch hours, and other spare time to work that needs to be done in order to meet the deadline. The edge editors, who are beginning staff members, are also helpful in the completion of the yearbook. The " edgies " assist the editors working on the book by writing captions and headlines, typing, and doing other small tasks. The edge editors also do assignments which prepare them for higher positions on the staff in the future. 44 Top Hat Aside from producing the yearbook, all members of this year ' s staff sold yearbook advertisements to various businesses. To help raise funds, staff members were busy selling Morton jerseys, baseball shirts, and jackets to students throughout the year. Members of the staff were also responsible for the advertising and selling of the 1981 Top Hat. Each member made posters advertising yearbook sales, and sold yearbooks to assigned homerooms. These students also distributed the yearbooks at the end of the school year. The staff made some changes in this year ' s book, with senior pictures appearing in color for the first time in Top Hat. Another new addition to the yearbook was the listing of patrons, who contributed funds, that aided in the production of the book. During the summer, some of the Top Hat staff members attended the yearbook workshop at St. Mary ' s College in South Bend, Indiana, where they decided on the theme of the book, and agreed upon the cover design, working with the plant artist. The staff members reviewed some of the more basic rules of yearbook planning, concerning page design, writing copy, and selecting pictures, and were also introduced to new ideas to use for the yearbook. Those who attended the workshop also saw slides and shared ideas with staffs fr om other schools. The entire Top Hat staff attended a field trip to Valparaiso University in September, where they viewed slides and listened to lectures concerning yearbook planning. Top HU 45 p The San Diego Chicken discos his way down the street as the band performs dur¬ ing the Hammond Christmas Parade. Band Receives Recognition And Honors Morton ' s band has been more than just an ordinary marching band. They have been constantly practicing, competing, and performing. Every member put forth ef¬ fort to create an organization which was a highly active and accomplished group. This can be seen by their many activities and the honors the band received during this year ' s and last yea r ' s seasons. The 1979 Hammond Christmas Parade, which took place the Saturday before Thanksgiving, was one of the highlights of the year. The band officially escorted the San Diego Chicken, who romped down the Hammond streets as the band performed. Adding to the excitement of the day, the band received a first place for their performance. They were judged on musicianship, showmanship, uni¬ forms, and marching. As described by Mrs. Kolar, the parade was " really a thrilling experience. " The band also took part in last year ' s Little League and Memorial Day parade. The Northern Indiana District Solo and Ensemble con¬ test was on the agenda for February 1980. After compet¬ ing at Highland Junior High School in the contest, many students advanced to the state contest in Indianapolis. During the Spring of 1980, Sean Egan took the spotlight in individual honors. He was selected as one of the top seven clarinetists in Indiana. He first auditioned at Valporaiso High School, playing his own musical piece. For his out¬ standing performance, Egan was chosen to play in the All- State Band. The All-State Band performed a Concert at Butler University in Indianapolis. " We had a great band. I was pleased with the performance and with my ranking, " stated Egan. The band also entertained listeners at various concerts during the year. The Winter Concert enabled listeners to relax and enjoy the talent of the band on a cold winter Band evening. Student teacher Mr. Jeff Westfall, from Indiana University, took temporary charge of the band classes during the winter. He arranged the first performance put on by the Jazz Band. During the month of May, the band visited Scott and Morton Middle Schools with instru¬ ments in hand. They put on concerts for the students, performing " Scherezade " , " Amparito Roca " , a Spanish number, and many others. The Jazz Band added variety to the concerts with several numbers. Aside from all the practicing and performing, band members were constantly busy organizing and carrying out fund raisers. Among the items they sold were Texas Citrus Fruits, popcorn, and salt and pepper shakers. With the profits brought in by the projects, the band was able to pay for trips and order 50 new plumes for their head- pieces. Money was put away for music, band scholarships, uniforms, and instruments. This year, the band was equally active and successful. Band members got an early start this summer by staying after school, working on the music for football game half time performances. They also spent time working with the Twirlers and Pom Pon Girls. Autumn fund raisers in¬ cluded selling acrylic jewelry and sponsoring paper drives. With the savings from last year ' s fund raisers, the band visited Six Flags in St. Louis, where they competed in a concert band contest. Band members enjoyed themselves riding on the rides and touring the city. The group also took a trip to Marriott ' s Great America, where they marched in a parade. Christmas this year was another big event for the band. They were chosen to represent all Hammond bands to officially welcome Santa Claus to Woodmar Shopping Center. They also marched in the Hammond Christmas Parade. Mrs. Kolar feels that this season has been especially good. She stated, " The kids worked hard, and have tre¬ mendous attitudes. In 23 years of teaching, this has been one of my top organizations " .

Their year included performing on the first showing of Cable TV in the Hammond district. The group was composed of Sen¬ iors Dan Leismer, Kurt Kortokrax, Kevin Kolonawski and Gary Allen. The choir performed in several concerts this year. The Christmas concert took place December 17. " The Night before Christmas, " and " Mount of Olives " Hallelujah by Beetoven. The choir also had a Pop concert in October and their annual Spring concert in April. The choir was asked to perform again at the Woodmar Country Club ' s Christmas party in December. The Choir and Ensemble performed for several differ¬ ent senior citizens, homes, churches, civic organizations at the school administration center. The choir also re¬ corded a concert which was aired over WJOB radio. This year the Ensemble wore new outfits, which were made by teachers and parents of the choir. The uniforms were, brown, beige or red skirts or pants, with brown, beige, or red sweaters. To help pay for activities and transportation, the choir sold cheese and sausage during the fall. The highlight of the season was Kelley Isom ' s selection to the All-State choir. Isom was selected from 28 students from the Hammond district to compete at Butler Univer¬ sity in Indianapolis for the All-State choir. The students selected and performed a solo from their own selection in front of the State Music Educators. Isom was one of 200 students selected to the All-State choir. 48 Mixed Choir And Ensemble Concert Choir-Front Row: Lori Hilliard, Yolanda Torres, Therese Herbert, Karen Kruse, Pam Boilek, Laurie Decker, Tina Nadon, Rosemary Swanson, Susan Ellis, Robin Easton, Kelley Isom, Sean Egan.

English Classes Essential The academic section at Morton High school not only includes the traditional classes, but also offers several different types of special academic classes, and a variety of electives. The traditional classes of English, math, and science are mainly to refresh, im¬ prove or take a step deeper into the ba¬ sics. In order to graduate a student needs eight credits in English, four from re¬ quired classes and four from electives. Using the right parts of speech, improv¬ ing spelling and punctuation and widen¬ ing one ' s vocabulary will only benefit the student to speak his language properly and with respect. It may all seem like a review, but the basic skills are so impor¬ tant and many students must master those skills before advancing in to the outside world. Taking more complex classes such as advanced composition to further an edu¬ cation is essentia] to a student if he is ex¬ pecting to attend college. dHablas espanol? Parlez-vous francais? Sprechen Sie Deutsch ? Does any of these make sense to you? Some people not only feel a need to know their own language well, but they have the desire to master one of the three foreign languages of Spanish, French, and German offered at Morton. Foreign language plays a big part in todays growing world as more and more people migrate to the United States. In these classes beginning students learn simple phrases and verb conjuga¬ tion. Advanced students start learning actual conversation to help them speak fluently. Foreign language is needed for such jobs as Foreign News Correspondents, in¬ terpreters, and foreign embassy jobs, or just for the traveler, who visits foreign countries. As an elective class,reign language is offered to any interested student. Additional Languages Beneficial Foriegn Language S3 Practical Knowledge Acquired What does " taxation without represen¬ tation ' ' mean ? Why is the American dollar value constantly decreasing? The answers to these questions and many more can be found if one just takes the right classes. The social studies department offers more than the requirements of U.S. Histo¬ ry for juniors, and government and eco¬ nomics for seniors. The department also offers such classes as psychology, sociolo¬ gy, and world history. This area of learn¬ ing offers a basic, yet wide field of studies of the past, present, and the inner studies of social life. Psychology is a popular elective class in the social studies department. It discusses what influences a person ' s personality, and Freud ' s and Skinner ' s theories about the study of the mind. Learning how to tell what another is feeling by watching one ' s body movements is a very interesting part of the course. Science can be more than hours of long studying and long lectures. One can leam of interesting things such as amoebas, parameciums, genes, and cell division. The basic structure of life itself is ex¬ plained in the required classes of biology and health and safety. For those interested in further exploring the mysteries of life, Morton offers such elective biology orien¬ tated classes as zoology and animal be¬ havior. Zoology students engage in complex experiments pertaining to pulse, respira¬ tion, and reflexes of rats, turtles, and frogs. Instincts and learned beh avior as well as survival methods are explored in ani¬ mal behavior. The growth of trees, plants, flowers, and reproduction are just a few topics studied in botany. After completion of these courses, stu¬ dents may decide to further their studies with physics, chemistry, and earth sci¬ ence. Students Gain Wisdom Through Lab Experience Problems Baffle Students In the math department at Morton, stu¬ dents not only learn the basics of math, but may also desire to further their math skills by taking advanced math classes. Students are required to take two years of math to meet graduation requirements. For some students, the required two years of math is not enough. In such a case, students may take math as a elective class. Morton offers six types of math classes that can suit almost any students needs. The students who are under the general studies program are only required to take general math. General math students learn the basics in math. Algebra and geometry are the required math classes, under the college prepara¬ tory program. In algebra and geometry, students study such things as angles, theroems, and equations. Some students do not plan to go to col¬ lege, but plan to go into a business career. These students may wish to take the of¬ fered business math classes. 56 Math The business classes in the high schools are just as important to learning as English or mathematics. The many classes offer techniques useful in the business world as well as in the private sector. Typing, shorthand, notehand, and cherical practice teach a student the basic rudiments of secretarial work. Personal typing teaches a student the basics of the skill for those who do not wish to enter the business field. The mathematical part of this field is just as important. Accounting teaches how to keep books and perform other mathemat¬ ical jobs. Another is general business, which includes how to keep a checking account and the importance of different types of insurances. Clerical practice benefits a student planning on working in a office, as a sec¬ retary, by teaching the student how to operate office machinery. Clerical Skills Give Students New Dimension Consumers Educated For Future " 2 cups of flour " " 1 tsp. of baking soda " " 3 whole eggs " Sound familiar? It may, if a student has home economics. Home economics pre¬ pares the student, male as well as female, for future homemaking. As hard as it may seem to believe, many people are lost in the kitchen, or when they are sitting be¬ hind a sewing machine. The purpose of home economics is to help people with the problems of domes¬ tic chores in such things as proper dress, how to cook, and cleanliness. Today, this class is especially benefit- ting to men since so many women are working. After high school or college, men will either be in the military, married, or staying a bachelor, which means they are still responsible for themselves and will need to know the essentials to keep a house running smoothly. Proper use o( a sewing machine was among the valuable skills gained by Michelle in sewing class. 58 Home Economics “Should I. use oil or water olors or this drawing? " questions iVariiy Hladek Art provides students with an opportu¬ nity to express their creativeness. The pro¬ gram gives the students the basics re¬ quired to go on into one of the most com¬ petitive areas of the " artistic " world. The starting point in the art program serves somewhat like a foundation pro¬ gram as learning the art elements of lines, shapes, color, texture, value, and space. When one completes this program he may advance. Free hand drawing of simple objects is accomplished in the second year, along with geometric forms of spheres, cubes, and pyramids. When a student becomes a junior, he is involved in print making, drawing on lino¬ leum, making sculptures with clay, and learning to cast them for reproduction. The final touches in the program in¬ volve acrylic and water paintings, and learning to do alphabetic lettering, which completes the four year art program at Morton. Art Students Work For Perfection problem thoughts Art 59 P.E. Increases Body Strength, Coordination All students are required to take one year of gym to meet graduation require¬ ments. Students are taught the basic skills in such sports as tennis, golf, football, and basketball. Both the boys and girls gym classes go through a physical fitness course, which consists of a 50 yard dash, doing sit-ups, chin-ups, and the shuttle run. At the end of the course, one boy and one girl are chosen out of all the classes as the most physically fit. Physical education class also required each student to take a portion of swim¬ ming. The swimming classes are divided into three groups according to students skills. Group one is for the beginner, group two is for the intermediate, and group three is for the advanced students. Last year a new class, Advanced P.E., was added to Morton ' s electives. Ad¬ vanced P.E. is designed for the most athle¬ tically inclined student. Does this sound familar? " Your homework assignment is to do geometry problems 1-50 page 127. " " Write a composition on student behav¬ ior. " " Finish the frog disection and name all the organs. " Those assignments are just part of the normal academic classes at Morton. But have you heard you teacher saying " To¬ night practice the ' School Song’ and ' Swinging on Parade ' . " Morton ' s music department has a vari¬ ety of classes including band, music histo¬ ry, music theory, and several choirs. Part of the band class includes perform¬ ing at the football and basketball games, and marching in several parades during the school year. Morton s concert choir and mixed choir classes have expressed true talents by ap¬ pearing in public concerts. Extra-curricular music groups such as Barber Shop and Jazz Quartet highlight Morton s musical department. Music Class Involve Time, Full Devotion Susan Kerr and Cindy Neyhart share tha music to Alexander ' s Ragtime Band. Varsity Football There is one word to describe the 1980 varsity foot¬ ball season ... disappointing!!! The Morton players were confident of a good season. Who would have known that the season would go as it did. The factor that worked heavily against the Gover¬ nors was the injuries. First on the injured list was senior Brian Adams with a dislocated thumb that kept him out for four weeks. Next came senior Dennis Zaremba with a back injury that kept him out of the Highland game and three weeks later put him out for the season. Injured in the Highland game, senior Scott Thomp¬ son broke his ankle and senior John Keilman tore the ligaments in his knee. Senior Tony Gresham split his chin during the Roosevelt game and senior Jeff Schneider tore the ligaments in his knee the follow¬ ing week, keeping both out of the Hammond High game. Senior Mike Riffle was the last player on the injured list with torn ligaments in his ankle. When it came to winning, the Governors came short of their goal. Morton beat Hammond Tech in the annual Homecoming game 26-6. The following week they came through again by beatingE.C. Wash¬ ington 21-12. The victories ended at that point and Morton finished the season at 2-8. The bright spots of the season were senior Tom Ramberg being named conference kicker and honor¬ able mention linebacker and Gresham being named honorable mention fullback. Ramberg averaged 30 yards per punt, 48 yards per kick-off, and had a total of 52 solo tackles and 43 assists on the season. Gresh¬ am carried the bcdl 99 times for 533yards, a veraging 5 yards per carry. He also scored 3 touchdowns. Seniors Jeff Oros and Gresham were named most valuable players by their teammates and Adams was named team captain. 64 Varsity Football Varsity Football-Front Row: Jeff Juscik.

Morton opened up against Munster and defeated the Mustangs 14-6. From there the Governors moved on to Gavit and suffered their only loss, 14- 7. The Governors battled the next game out with Clark and, as usual, came out on top 28-7. Bishop Noll proved a worthy opponent as the Warriors gave Morton a run for their money. Morton went ahead in the fourth quarter to win, but unfortunately sophomore Dan Gresham was injured and out for the remainder of the season Morton won by forfeit over Roosevelt and went on to play Hammond High. The Hammond High game was tough but Morton put it all together and won 13-0. Defense was a strong point in the Morton team this year, giving up only 6 point per game. Stated Coach Hunt, “Considering the size and number of linemen, I think they did one heck of a good job. ” J.V. Opponent Football Morton Munster 6 14 Gavit 14 7 E.C.

The Governors opened up against the very tough Andrean team. The game was a hard fought battle and when the game was over, Morton had lost 6-14, the only loss of the season. In the second game, which was against East Chicago Washing¬ ton, the Governors claimed a 24-6 victory. Tezh was next but be¬ cause of a shortage of players, the Tigers had to forfeit the game. Clark followed on the schedule and Morton beat them 14-0. Bish¬ op Noll was the next opponent and the meeting was probably the toughest of the year. Morton won 14-12. Morton, now evidently on the roll, went on to beat East Chicago Roosevelt 16-0, Hammond High 14-6, and Gavit 14-8 in the next three games. “Both Coach Maicher and I real¬ ly enjoyed working with the boys and we were very pleased with the outcome of the season, ’’stated Hea Coach Fred Kepler. Freshmen Football 67 Cross Country The cross country team underwent a drastic change in 1980. For the first time in Morton’s history, girls participated on the squad. The girls who competed along with the boys this year were freshman Diane Frost, and sophomores LaRetha Bright well and Peggy Stevens. Girls com¬ peted against boys in the conference meets, but in regionals, competed solely against girls. The year overall with a record of 2-6 was not a success, but individual accomplishments over¬ shadowed the season. Senior Frank Johnson was the steadiest runner for the team. Johnson competed in the sectionals and took a 6th place which qualified him for regionals. In regionals, Johnson placed 16th which was very re¬ spectable. The talented senior broke the school re¬ cord in the 5000 meter run with a time of 16.53. John¬ son was also the captain of the team and was chosen Most Valuable Player. Freshman Diane Frost was the other outstanding runner. Frost went to regionals and claimed a 10th place which enabled her to compete in the state meet. In state finals, Frost came in 81st out of an over¬ whelming number of runners. The young freshman broke the school record in the 3000 meter run with a time of 11.52. 68 Cross Country During a triangular meet at Kusbel concentrates on Dowling Park, Senior Frank maintaining a steady pass.

The duo captured the number one doubles conference championship by defeating Noll in the final match. Coach Bob Weiss stated, “I put Soto and Fary together at the beginning because they looked like they had potential and could play well together. ” Coach Weiss also added, “They improved steadily all season long which enabled them to win the conference championship. Putting those two together was the best decision I made all year. ” The Governors started off the season with a disappointing loss to Calumet, 3-2. The racketmen then started their streak which led them into the Bishop Noll match with a conference record of 3-0 and in a tie for first place. Unfortunately, Morton suffered their only loss in conference to Bishop Noll, 3-2, which cost them the championship. Coach Bob Weiss had this to say about the match. “The loss to Bishop Noll was a disappointment, but because the boys had worked hard and played very well, I didn ' t feel bad.” The Governors ended up the season with an overall record of -4 and a 6-1 mark in conference play. In the first round of sectionals, the racketmen defeated Clark, 4-1. The Govs were then beaten by Munster, 5-0, in the second round of sectional play. Number one singles players Aaron Soto was the captain of the team and was voted most valuable by his fellow teammates. Soto stated, Although we were upset about not winning conference, I thought we had a great season. ” 70 Boy’s Tennis TENNIS OPPONENT MORTON Calumet 3 2 Gary Roosevelt 1 4 Gavit 0 5 Clark 0 5 Hammond High 2 3 Bishop Noll 3 2 E.C.

All three games of the match were close, but Morton managed to edge out the Gladiators in the third game, 17-15. Commenting on the game, Coach Miriam Costanza stated, ‘‘Gavit had a more talented team, but teamwork and determination to win gave the Govs the edge. ” Commenting on the season, Coach Costanza replied, “All players were evenly skilled, and the reason for their success was that they played together as a team. ” Outstanding players on the team were sophomores Jackie Sufak, Barb Oros, Maribeth Gruener, and Sharon Weis.

The first win of the season came in the second game as Morton beat the Clark Pioneers 30-21. Next came Hammond Tech, and the Governors beat the Tigers 29-17. Seven games later, Morton battled it out with Bishop Noll and just barely squeezed by with a score of 24-23. After playing a tough game, the Governors got a break as they played and easily beat the Munster Mustangs 32- 18. One of the big disappoint¬ ments of the season was the loss of the J. V. Tournament. Morton won the first game against E.C. Roosevelt by forfeit. The Lady Governors next defeated the Whiting Oilers 24-20. In the championship game, Morton lost by two points to the Bishop Noll Warriors. During the season, sophomore Maribeth Gruener was the leading scorer.

The game was not too much of a challenge for Morton, as the Governors defeated the Tigers by a score of67-35. Moving on into the tourna¬ ment, the Governors played Hammond High. The Wildcats proved to be a worthy opponent as they put up a real battle with Morton. The last few minutes in the fourth quarter told the story though as the lead sea-sawed back and forth. When the buzzer went off, Hammond High was ahead 62-60. Morton had lost a real heart-breaker. Commenting on the season, Coach Aletta Hicks stated, “It could have been better then it was with a little more work.

Girls Varsity Baskeball 77 Basketball The highlight of Morton’s Varsity 1980-81 basket¬ ball season was capturing the Hammond Tournament crown. In the first game of the tournament, the Governors defeated Gavit 61-49. In the finals, Morton upset the Hammond High Wildcats, 52-45, to win the tourney. Coach Russ Marcinak stated, ‘‘We won the tourna¬ ment because we didn ’t make that many mistakes and our shooting was real accurate.” The Govs started off the season slow by winning only one out of the first seven games. The team’s lone victory in this stretch was over Griffith, 67-62. The squad then won their next five out of nine games including the Hammond Tournament. Morton ended up the season with an overall mark of 6-14 and a 2-6 record in conference play. In sectionals, Morton reached the championship game only to suffer a heart-breaking loss to last year’s Hammond Sectional Champ, Andrean, 71-68. Andrean was also rated 9th in the state at the end of the 1981 regular season and made it to the final four in the 1980 state tournament. In order to get to the finals the team beat Gavit, 69- 56, and revenged an earlier loss to Tech by defeating the Tigers, 63-58. " We played tough throughout the entire sectional but we really played well against Andrean consider¬ ing they had the height advantage over us.” com¬ mented Coach Russ Marcinak.

In Lake Shore Conference play, the Govs ended up at 1-7. The Governors suffered two tough losses at the beginning of the season to Lake Central, 44-37, and Highland, 44-42.

In the conference tournament, the Governors were knocked out in the first round by East Chicago Roosevelt by the score of 67-51. The team was playing well until the loss of sophomore Austin Bar¬ rett to the varsity team. This was the major reason that the team suffered in its last eight games of the season. Improvements were made as the season progressed, but the boys will have to work harder to compete at the varsity level.” stated J. V. Coach Greg Jancich.

Two or more key players missed games. Three or more players missed eight games. Five key players missed two games. “.Inconsistent performance, inability, on numerous occasions to limit our opponents to only one shot per possession, frequent ball-handling errors against pressure defenses, inability to capitilize on numerous 3 on 1, 3 on 2, or 2 on 1 advantages, inconsistent defensive performance, and a high absence rate, all contributed to minimize our success, “stated Coach Rick Volbrecht. Jim Balzco was leading scorer and rebounder for the “A ” squad with 239 points and 167 rebounds respectively. The leading scorer and rebounder for the “B” squad was Keith Kessler with 74 points and 55 rebounds. Freshman Basketball 81 Wrestling This year’s wrestling season was not one of great victories, but more of learning. The team consisted of one senior, four juniors, seven sophomores, and 15 freshmen. Due to the great number of freshmen who were not experienced in high school competition, the team ended it’s season with a dismal 0-9 record. However there were a few bright spots during the season which included juniors Roger and Cleveland Travis and freshman Ruben Urbano. Through this year’s tough season 98 lb. Roger managed to compile an 18-8 record which also included a first place in sectionals at Hammond High and a fourth place in regionals which were at Calumet. One hundred twelve pound Cleveland Travis also had an extremely exciting year with a 14-7 overall season record. Cleveland also earned third place ribbons from both conference and sectional tournaments. One promising grappler for next year’s season is 145 lb. Ruben Urbano did well for his first year in high school wrestling with a 4-3 record. This year’s grapplers compiled 8th, 4th and 16th places at the varsity conference, sectionals and regionals, respectively. Although the season was not the best on record, this year’s team still showed a great deal of good sportsman like conduct. The team never looked back at their loses but more on the hopes of future victories. “We are the team of the future,” stated Coach Fred Kepler when asked to comment on this year’s team.

In the first three meets, Morton won easily against Gary Wirt, Hammond High, and Gary West Side by scores of 125-44, 136-36, and 123-49 respectively. Morton won their fourth meet to the Griffith Panthers by a forfeit. Gary Mann was next and the Governors once again easily won by a score of 138-27. The next meet against Lake Central was the toughest and closest match of the season. Morton barely pulled it off by a score of 87-85. The tankmen easily won the next two meets against Lew Wallace, 120-45, and Clark 128-38. From this point on, Morton, because of sickness, began to go downhill, as the tankmen won only two of their last six meets. In the conference meet, Morton placed second behind state champion Bishop Noll. During the sectionals, the Governors placed fifth. Three records were broken. Senior Kevin Brownwell set a new record in the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 5:04.5. Junior Dave Rycerz set two records, one in the 200 yard-individual medely with a 2:09.4 time; the other in the 100 yard-breast stroke with a time of 1:05. On January 31, at the Lake Shore Conference meet, junior Darla Price placed first in the diving competition. In all dives, Darla scored 253.75 points. Darla’s first place finish was the only first place for the Governors in the meet. Despite her performance, Darla was unable to dive in the sectionals because girls are not allowed to participate in the sectionals. Junior Darla Price uses complete concentration in striving for a first place finish in diving. 84-Swimming Timerettes-Front Row: Shelley Geissendorfer, Kelly Walsh Second Row: Michelle Companion, Shari Companion, Dawn Cantrell, Lori Woodward, Kim Mycka, Cindy Bermingham Back Row: Rebecca Soto, Mary Egan, Ramona Soto, Sue Batliner, Patty Axtman.

Swimming-85 Boys Track The 1980 track team fared pretty well as Morton ended with a 5-5 season record. The biggest meets of the year were the Lake Shore Conference meets. One was indoor, the other was outdoor. In both meets the Governors placed third out of nine teams. In the Lake Central Relays, Morton did a little bet¬ ter than 50% as the Governors placed third out of six teams. But in the Calumet and Hammond High Re¬ lays Morton did not do so well placing seventh and sixth out of eight teams respectively. This year the new all purpose track was finished enabling Morton to host a few meets. The first meet was the Morton Relays. Proud of their new track, the trackmen showed what they were made of as they placed second out of eight teams. In the tri-meets Morton placed second against Bish¬ op Noll and Lowell, second against East Chicago Roo¬ sevelt and Hammond High, lost to Bishop Noll and Hammond High and beat Hammond Clark and Whit¬ ing.

The best performance of the season came in the third match of the year when Morton placed fourth in a 9 team meet. Morton also did well in a triangular meet as the Governors placed second with state ranked Lake Central and Hebron. The indoor Lake Shore Conference Meet was a suc¬ cessful event for the lady Governors. Morton came up with a fourth place finish. Morton started the outdoor season by winning the first two double duel meets in a row. Hitting a slump, Morton lost the next meet but came back to win the next two.

Although the team’s overall re¬ cord was 5-6, the Governors had a conference record of 5-2 allowing Morton to claim a second place in the standings. The highlight of the year was number one singles player senior Faith Marcinek. Marcinek be¬ came the first girl in Morton’s his¬ tory to capture the Lake Shore Conference Championship. The talented senior also had the honor of being named to the All-Lake Shore Conference team. Senior Sue Sliwa carefully prepares to smash one back to her opponent.

The Governors went into the Lake Shore Conference meet at the end of the year in a tie for first with cross-town rival Ga- vit. The meet would decide the win¬ ner takes all. Unfortunately, Mor¬ ton lost to Gavit thus ending up in second place in conference with a 13-1 record and an overall record of 13-5. The Governors placed 14th in the Renessalaer Invitational and came in 6th place in the Lake Hills Invitational. In sectionals, the team took an 8th place. Senior Bob Soto was the only member of the team to qualify for regionals, however, he did not place in the event. “We had a lot of fun during the year, although we did not finish first in conference. I thought we should have.” commented Coach Fred Kepler. Golf 91 Quick thinking and fast ac¬ tion is Mitar Vranie ' s way of playing a good game of soccer. Soccer Winning 5 of 10 games in a tough conference using a team made up of sophomores and juniors, seems to give the impression that a promising future is close at hand. The season started out slowly as Morton tied Tech 2-2. In the next 4 games Morton lost to Noll 4-6, East Chicago Washington 2-4, and Munster 1-5, but over¬ powered Gavit 5-1. By mid-season, Morton was 1-3-1, but this slow start did not discourage the Governors as they won three in a row, beating Clark 9-0, Tech 2-1, and Hammond High 3-0. The key game of the season was against E.C. Wash¬ ington. Had the kickmen won the game, they would have clinched first place. Because of the heart break¬ ing 2-4 loss, Morton ended up in third place. In the Lake Shore Conference Tournament, Morton opened up with Hammond High and a 2-1 victory over the Wildcats enabled the Governors to move on and play Bishop Noll in the semi-final game. The Gov¬ ernors suffered a disappointing 1-2 over-time loss, be¬ ing knocked out of the tournament. The season re¬ cord of the kickmen ended at 5-4-1. The lone senior on the squad, three year veteran Phil Markovich led the team in scoring and was named Most Valuable Player by his teammates. Ju¬ niors Tom Ramberg, Scott Thompson, Jeff Oros, Sean Egan, Mario Matakovich, and Joe Guerra return to head the 1981 team. “Despite the four losses, the season was not a total loss because the younger players got a lot of exper¬ ience for the upcoming season” stated team Co-Cap¬ tain Tom Ramberg. 92 Soccer Soccer Opponent Tech Noll Cavit E.C.W.

The team had to share the Lake Shore Conference crown with three other teams; Bishop Noll, East Chicago Roosevelt, and Hammond High. At the midpoint of the season, the Governors were 9-2. The team looked like they would sweep the rest of the season and end up on top all alone. Morton then had two tough defeats against E.C. Roosevelt 4-1, and Hammond High 3-2. The Gover¬ nors never did seem to recover from there two crucial losses. The team ended up the season with a record of 14-8 and a mark of 10-6 in conference play. In sectionals, the Governors lost to E.C. Roosevelt, 7-0 in first round play. Senior Scott Lush led the team with a .342 batting average and he also led the team in RBI’s with 19. “Our original goal was to win conference and we achieved this, so the season was a success,” stated Head Coach Jack Georgas. Coach Georgas also com¬ mented “Anytime you win something its a success. It kept our winning streak live.” 94 Baseball Easily beating the throw, Senior Rory Segally scores the go ahead run.

Teachers with the least senority were faced with the task of traveling from room to room and two teachers even worked in two different schools. Mr. Leo Orloff will retire in June after 36 years of public teaching. Mr. Orloff spent the last six years of his career teaching English at Morton. Before entering public teaching, Mr. Orloff served 4 Vi years in the military, two of which he taught as an instructor. Mr. Orloff attended Northern Illinois University. Mr. Nick Luketic, who retired from coaching last fall will however continue teaching at Morton. Mr. Luketic, who coached all 27 years at Morton, was the head football coach for the last 5 years. The year also brought about note worthy accomplishments. Journalism Teacher, Mr. Scott Markley, won “Best Amateur Slide” in a photo contest, sponsored by the South Country Camera Club in Crown Point. Mrs. Karen Collins, Home Ec teacher, won second place in the Times caseral contest; and Mr. Cliff Snow, Industrial Arts Teacher, took first place trophy for the best post¬ war pick up truck at the 22nd Annual World of Wheels Auto Show at McCormick Place. Three new teachers joined Morton ' s faculty this year . .. Mrs. Mary Lacy, Mrs. Debbie McCarthy, and Miss Sheri Williams. Mr. Michael Bandura, who taught 8 of his 27 years in the Hammond School System at Morton, passed away in June of 1980. A moratorium to Mr. Bandura appears on Page 109 of this book.

Mr. Michael Bandura passed away Thursday, June 12, 1980 at Community Hospital in Munster. Mr. Bandura was a Veteran of World War II, and a lifetime resident of the Calumet Region. He was involved in the Hammond school system for 27 years, until his death. In September of 1953 he began his teaching career at Riverside Elementary School. Mr. Bandura resigned his teaching position in June of 1958 for various health reasons. He returned to his teaching career in 1959, at Harding Elemenetary School, as a sixth grade teacher. After Harding Elementary, he joined the Merrillville school system and taught there for three years, before joining Morton Senior High School in 1966 as a counselor. In September of 1972 he returned to the classroom as a Morton business teacher until the summer of 1980 when he passed away. Mr. Bandura is survived by his wife, Leanor, two daughters, Cynthia (Mark) Richardson of Munster, Kathleen at home, and one son, Michael, at home. A memorial fund was raised through the school for Mr. Bandura last fall and a plaque will be placed in the business department in his memory. The remaining money will be used for scholorships. Business Department Chairman, Mr. Ernest Alexander, said, " We were fraternity brothers in college. He was a very good family man and very much devoted to his work. Mike was a terrific person. " Memories of the Way We Were June is the time of year when everyone thinks back to their accomplishments and failures throughout the year. For the senior class, it is a time for looking back on all the good memories and blotting out the bad ones of the past four years. The four years at Morton have molded the class into young adults, though sometimes the students do not realize it. During freshmen year, becoming seniors seemed so far away, and it was hard to stay out of the way of the seniors at that time. It is hard to think back to all of the people that have helped over these four years-the teachers, counselors and, of course, good friends. Some seniors believed that their last year was to be spent having fun and a time to not worry about grades. Others believe that it was the time to work extra hard to make it to college. Some students graduated in January and were able to get on with their lives and new interests. This year’s seniors got together and put all their efforts forth to construct the winning homecoming float. This year’s homecoming queen was Sue Stirling, escorted by Alex Vermajan. The class officers along with the sponsors, Mr. Mike Harris and Ms. Diane Vasquez, decided on a mixture of red and grey for the caps and gowns; red for the girls, and grey for the boys. The sponsors were a great help to the seniors over these past four years. All seniors have different goals set for themselves after graduation. For some, marriage is just around the corner; for others, college and job plans are in the making; but others are still undecided as to which direction their lives are going. Since June has arrived so quickly, we have been Filled with a mixture of sadness and joy. These last few days have been the last time we walked down these halls, and the last time the whole class was together. Now we will be separated and Find new friends and interests. All of the memories of the past four years cannot be erased. All the homework, detentions, and teachers that were impossible to get along with will never be forgotten. Also, the good memories such as football and basketball games, dances, assemblies, favorite teachers and friends will stay fresh in the minds of many for years to come. Class officers and sponsors: Secretary Barb Serlic, Mr. Michael Harris. Ms. Diane Vasquez, President Alex Vermejan, and Vice-President Sue Stirling. 112 Seniors Alice Barrett Brian Bartock John Berg Joy Berry Bernie Bielak -Theme Song “Bite The Dust”- “ s Hiam Abdeihadi Brian Adams Mary Adams Tamara Aguilar William Aguilera Sharon Appelquist Rosalinda Aragon Robert Avenatti Susan Bardoczi Awaiting College Joesph Brzycki Clifford Biewenga Andrew Blythe Robert Bigbie Nicke Bokun Nicholas Boy an Kevin Browne well Jami Browning Sherrie Bryce Ilene Bundy Debra Calderon Lisa Canarini Karen Carmon Dennis Casben Leslie Casper Jackie Catania Joseph Caudle Michael Chance Daniel Cburilla Kevin Clayton Frank Clemens David Colgrove Kathy Collins Michelle Companiott Brian Cox Kendra Crowder “What It Is!” Seniors 115 David Dowling Mary Dracb Douglas Drees Thomas Dujan Ronald Dunn -Harris Vasquez Sponsors- 116 Seniors Marjorie Cruz Nora Csicsko Shelly Cummins Jill Dalton Michael Davidson Thomas Davis Kathy Deasy Laurie Decker Andrea Dehenes Paul DeRolf Colleen Derrow Thomas Diehl Myra Dodd Michelle Dodson Tina Douglas Terry Dunne Robin Easton Mark Eaton Denise Ebeltoft Sean Egan Penny Ellison Ronald Fary Judy Floyd Douglas Fork Alison Frak Daniel Frey Richard Garcia Richard Garza David Gear man Shelley Geissendorfer Curtis Geissler Susan Gilchrist Shelly Gillespie James Gillis Tami Gilmore “Independent At Last” Susan Colon Lorie Grant Vicki Grant Dennis Greaney Anthony Gresham Joseph Grubesic Jennifer Grzych Joseph Guerra Renee Guerrero Dawn Gurnak Patrick Hall Patrick Hanes Robin Hansen Scott Hansen Kimberlee Hantz Glen Harakal William Harmon John Hayduk William Heller Angela Hendron -Male Cheerleaders- 118 Seniors Darren Highsmith Sbirley Hogan Michael Hutts Ed Hernandez Cathrine Herring George Hess Holly Hilbricb Lori Hillard Nancy Hladek Edward Holmquist Michael Holper James Ignas Kelly Isom Ronda Jackman -Pom Pon Guys — Seniors 119 Peggy Higgins Rob Hofferth Kathleen Howard Patricia Jansky Christopher Jasqur Nancy Jazyk Annette Jimenez Frank Johnson Joyce Jones Mericia Jones Jeffrey Juscik Lana Kaiser Ronald Kaminski Bettina Kasper Kurt Kortokrax Herring . . .

Juniors have matured in the three years and are now making and coping with decisions they must make. There ' s a feeling of independence, which was not easily felt in the past two years. Junior year is like being in the middle of things, not as underclassmen or upperclassmen but just as an observer of the year ' s happenings. Besides being an observer, they are also given the chance to put their talents to work in planning such activities as the Junior- Senior Prom. Preparations were made for the 1981 Prom " Moonlight Roses, " which took place at the Wicker Park Social Center on April 24. To pay for the expenses, juniors sold candy, gifts for Christmas, carnations for Valentines Day, and the class had a paper drive. Junior class sponsor, Mrs. Shirley Rotenberg said, " Some students in the class are good, hard working, and responsible people. They take care of things beautifully and the ones who come to the meetings are enthusiastic. " The 1980-81 junior girls were given the chance to compete in the annual Powder Puff game. Although they were defeated by the seniors, 12-18, the juniors never lost their spirit. The Class of ' 82 now looks forward to becoming seniors. But as soon as their senior year begins, it must also come to an end. In their own way the juniors will be saying farewell to Morton High, leaving behind four years of memories not easily forgotten.

Class rings were one of the things the class members looked forward to most during the sophomore year. They also enjoyed helping in some of the activities planned in hopes of a successful Junior-Senior prom in 1982. The schedule of events included two car washes during the summer, a candy sale in January, a roller skating party in February, and the selling of school pins, which were all successfully accomplished during the school year. Class sponsor Mr. Jeff Hayden said, " Those of the students that participated in helping the sophomore class along showed great effort and tremendous support " . Mr. Hayden also hopes to see more of the class of ' 83 start showing an interest and begin helping the members achieve their goals during the next two years. Homecoming was not a happy time for the sophomore class, as their float placed last in the Homecoming parade. Prom is scheduled to take place April 23, 1982, at the Wicker Park Social Center. The theme has not been determined. 140 Sophomores BOELT TERESA BOGUNOVICH DAVID BONILLA ELIZABETH BOWER JOHN BOWKER HOWARD BRADY CAROL BRIGHTWELL LARETHA BRILMYER JIM BR1MER MIKE BROOKS TANYA BROWN LORI BROWN VICKY CARTER KATHRYN CASH SHEILA CATANIA RONALD CAUDLE TERESA CAVANAUGH JENNIFER CLARK TRESA COGDILL TINA COLE ROXANA CONTREAS DEBORAH COOTS CAROLYN CORAK THOMAS CORNWELL MIKE COX JENNIFER COX PAM CRUZ LINDA CUDZILLO MARYANN DAVIDSON STANLEY DAVIS CRAIG DEFORD KAREN DEHENES STEVEN DESMOND SUSAN DEUTSCH ELLEN DOUGHMAN BRIAN DOWNEN GREGORY DRACH JAMES DUJAN CHRISTINE EBELTOFT DERRIN EINBINDER EDIE EINBINDER SHERI ELLIS KAREN ELMORE TRACY FARMER DAVID FELLOWS GERRY FERNANDO JUDY FISCUS GREG FLEMING GREGORY FLITAR SAMUEL FRIGO JODY FRITZ SHELLY FRIZZELL SHERRY GARZA GLORIA GATLIN BOBBY GAWRON DAVID GERKA ROBERT GIL PETER GILCHRIST BETTY GONYEA MIKE GONZALEZ DEANNA GRABAN GARRY GREANEY MICHAEL GREER CATHY GRESHAM DANIEL GRIMBERG PAUL GRUENER MARI BETH GURCHEK JAMES HALE KATHEY HALE TINA HALL BRETT HALL SUSAN HANKINS SCOTT Sophomore 141 HARRIS KELLY HARTLERODE DEBRA HOLLAND REBECCA HOPPER RAYMOND HORVAT RICHARD HUDKINS KRISTINE HUNTER JAMES HURT EUGENE INGRAM DARNELL JAIME HILDA JAMEYFIELD SANDY JELENSKI JEFFREY JONES DARREL JONES JEFFREY KANSFIELD CHRISTOPHER KASPER SANDRA KEILMAN LISA KELLEY CHRISTINA KERR SUSAN KEY ROBERT KIELBASA SUSAN KING DWAYNE KLAMUT ANNE KOMYATTI PAUL KOSTECKI TINA KOTLARZ CYNTHIA KOTVASZ CHERYL KRIVO MARIANNE KRONLAND KATHIE KRUSE KAREN KUKULA ROBERT LADENDORF SUSAN LEAR CATHERINE LEVAN DARRYL 142 Sophomore LEWIS JOYCE LEWIS LYNN LOCKRIDCE MICHELLE LOVE MICHAEL LUDFORD KIMBERLY MAAS CHRISTINA MACENSKI GERALDINE MANDICHAK HEIDI MANNS DALE MARCUM TERESA MARLATT TODD MARTIN VENITA MATTHEWS SHERYL MCAFEE RICHARD MCBRIDE MELINDA MCGEE MARTY MCMAHAN HEATHER MEIER NANCY MEZATIS JOSEPH MICHELIN RENEE MILEY BRADLEY MILLER DAWN MIRELES KAREN MITCHELL MARY MOSKALICK MICHELE MOTA LINDA MUFFETT DENNIS MULHERN BRENDA MULLINS PAULA NEYHART CYNTHIA NICK LA PAUL OBRIEN DEBORAH OSSANNA CHRI• OSTOICH JANE OULREY MARIE OWEN JULIE OWENS ROBERT OWENS TED Sophomore 143 PARSANKO DAVE PAUNOVICH KIMBERLY PAVICK KIMBERLY PEARMAN THOMAS PEARMAN TIM PEARSON CRAIG PEREZ KIMBERLY PETERSON DIRK PINKERTON JODIE POWERS MICHELLE PSENAK LOUIS PUDSIAKLILC VINCE PULLEY DIANA PULLEY TRACY QUEER BRIAN RAMIREZ MONICA RANGEL MELIDA RATAJCZAK LAUREL REDING GAY REID CARRIE RICHARDSON RANDY RICHMOND WILLIAM RIDDELL RONALD RIVERA DAMARIS ROBERTSON ALEX ROBERTSON THERESA ROHL PAUL ROSS KIMBERLY ROZWARA REBECCA RUTKOWSKI JANET RYANN ANDREW RYCERZ BRIAN SAKO TERESA SAKSA TRUDY SALACH TIMOTHY SALAPSKI SUSAN SARANG FRANK SAVER NANCY SAUCEDO DIANE SAYERS CYNTHIA SCARTOZZI RICHARD SCHALLENKAMP SUSAN SCHULTZ ALVIN SCHULTZ KENNETH SHELLMAN MARK SLIWA MICHAEL SMITH JUDITH SMITH TINA SNYDER DANIEL SOBCZAK MICHAEL SOLON MICHAEL SOLAN TIMOTHY SPRINGER JACINTA SPUDIC CHRIS STARKEY SHIRLEY STAVROPOULOS HARRY STEELE LINDA STEPHEN JENNIFER STEPHENS PEGGY STEVENS JOHNNY STEVENS SHERRY STROMQUIST KIMBERLEE SUDA SONNAMARIE SUFAK JACQUELINE SULLIVAN JEFFEREY SUTHERLAND JULIE SWANSON MARJORIE SWEET PATRICIA SZCZEPANSKI MICHAEL TAYLOR LISA TAYLOR PAUL THARP VALERIE 144 Sophomore TSOUCHLOS TIM TURCZI DAVID URBANSKI JAMIE VALAND1NCHAM DENNIS VANDEWATER WAYNE VELA ANTHONY VRAN1C M1TAR WAGGONER LAURA WEAKLAND WENDOLYN WEIS SHARON WETHINGTON DA VE WETZEL CINDY WHITE DEBRA WHITMORE JOE WILLIAMS RENA W1LLISON JAMES WILSON DOUGLAS WILSON MARK WITTIG SHELLY WOLAN JOYCE WOLSKI MARY WOOSLEY ROBERT WOZNICZKA KATHLEEN WRIGHT SHERYL WRISTON JEFF WROBFL LARRY YOLDASH MUSTAFA YOLDASH YASEMIN YOUNG ROBBIE ZAREMBA DEVIN ZAWADZKI SUSAN ZISOFF RHONDA Sophomore 145 Frosh Adjust To New Beginning The first day of school. That ' s what the freshman fear the most. High school, of course, is filled with many things that a freshman would not have experienced during their previous years of school. Finding the right room was one of the main problems for a freshman, along with all the embarrassment of walking into the wrong room on impulse just to get out of the halls. One of the many wonders of being a freshman is when they too can be considered an upperclassmen and not the lowest mark on the totem pole. Freshman year also has its good points, like meeting new friends and teachers. It also gives them a chance to do the things they enjoy doing the most joining club activities and receiving a free lunch hour to go to McDonalds, Taco Bell, Conveninent or even to sit in the school cafeteria. Along with Homecoming, two honored freshman we re elected to be attendants. The class sponsor, Mrs. Colantha Hill, said, " Those of the freshman that I have been able to associate with has shown great potential and have the ability to succeed in reaching their financial goals. " Their fun raising activities consisted of a candy sale, rummage sale, and a can good drive. Mrs. Hill hopes that more ideas for fund raising projects will come about.
