Opening 1 GOVERNORS At 8:00 a.m. Monday through Friday, about 1200 students are drawn to a special place . Morton Senior High School, the home of the Governors. The Governor, a ruler of people, has the author¬ ity and power over his state, just as Morton a ruler of schools, has the strength to overcome. The symbols Scarlet and Gray, Top Hat and Tails, Cane and Gloves, and school song, “We are Loyal to You Morton High, ” are symbolic of the Governor and all Morton students. The Governor brings a closer look at Morton and the administration, faculty, and students; particu¬ lar those who participate in school activities, clubs, and sports all make up the Morton Governors. It is only natural that the Top Hat Staff chose ( Tbe Governor ’ as the theme for the 1983 Year¬ book. The Morton students who work hard to get the job done-academically and athletically do it with the “CLASS” of a Governor. Despite the hard work, practice and time spent here, Morton students still have time for enjoyment whether it is at a game, pep assembly, or at lunch, one will always find the Morton Governors enjoy¬ ing high school life.

TOP HAT TAILS (continued from page 2) Just as the students and faculty are proud to be a Governor, they are also fond of the school. After accomplishing four years at Morton, the seniors may feel as though they hare lost a best friend. The years spent at Morton Senior High School will always be remembered as the “GOOD OLD DAYS” As seniors bid farewell to Morton, they also bid adue to the man in Top Hat and Tails known to us as “The Governor.” Opening 5 The BSU Marching Band performed at the Morton Clark football game. The Ball State Cardettes dance to a number of musical hits. BALL STATE LINCOLN PERFORM AT MORTON The Ball State University Marching Band per¬ formed at the pre-game, halftime, and postgame shows at the Morton Clark football game on Sep¬ tember 30. The Marching Cardinals who performed several popular music selections and a number of different designs, received a standing ovation at the end. Mrs. Carol Loerhrke said, “It was just a fantas¬ tic experience to have a university band perform here at Morton. ” In an assembly on October 19, actor Richard Blake took the Morton student body back to No¬ vember 1864 to President Lincoln’s pre-election press conference in the white house. Several members of the student body acted as press reporters and asked President Lincoln a number of questions about his re-election. Morton Principal Mr. Steve Stavros said that having the Ball State Band and President Lincoln perform at Morton was a good cultural experience not only for the students and faculty of Morton, but for the community as well. 6 Opening Actor Richard Blake portrays President Abraham Lincoln during an assembly.

SPORTS; MIND BODY The athletic program at Morton Senior High School offers interscholastic sports for male and female ath¬ letes in 14 different areas of competition. Morton includes a variety of athletics from the hard contact to the more agile sports, and from the team to the individual sports. Men and women ' s sports consist of a hard training program that includes weight training and conditioning. Along with the physical training, mental preparation, sportsmanship, and proper attitude is emphasised. The mind is also an important aspect in athletics as intelligence is as much a part of the game as physical strength. The mind is developed through academics and learn¬ ing, as the body is built by proper diet and training. An athlete ' s mind and body must be in complete form to compete among the best. Although athletics involve a tremendous amount of hard work, practice, and time after school, sports give the athletes a sense of accomplishment and self satis¬ faction. 14 Sports Varsity Quarterback Mark Wilson calls out a play to his team.

Graduation 17 FACTS AND FICTION Trivia is defined in the Funk and Wagnalls dic¬ tionary as unsignificant or unimportant matters; tribles; of little value or importance. No two people will agree on what is trivia. Many people feel it is limited to a certain part of news facts, others surely would feel it is facts on movies and movie stars. Sports fans quote statistics as trivia, while Civil war buffs cite commanders as trivia. Trivia is not unimportant or insignificant to us. Important matters to us of today such as our hair¬ styles, the clothes we wear, our shoes will be trivia in the future. Anything that happens in the world, local, or at home is considered trivia. Trivia is everywhere. If one were to put all the trivial facts into a book the sources would be end¬ less. 1. Who was the bearded prospector in conflict with Bugs Bunny? 2.

BUHRING SALACH WIN BIG 1982 was an outstanding year for the Morton debate with a long and impressive list of outstanding victories. One of the more promi¬ nent of these highlights was the performance of Junior Debbie Burhing and Senior Tim Salach at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Burhing and Salach were one of seven teams invited to compete in the Second Annual Redman Round Robi Debate Tournament in early December, 1982. The Round Robin preceded the 49tb Annual Redman Forensic Tournament, a two day tournament which began the day after the Round Robin. In the Round Robin each team debated each of the others once. Buhring and Salach emerged victo¬ rious, finishing with the best over¬ all record, as well as the highest combined speaker point total of all teams competing. Additionally, Salach was the first place speaker in the tournament and Coach Doug Fix was honored for coaching the first place team. “It took a lot of effort on the part of many people to allow us to compete in Oklahoma. I was very concerned about the possibility of our letting them down. Because of this, I was elated with our success in the Round Robin, ” commented Mr. Fix. The Redman Forensics tourna¬ ment followed a different format. The debate competition went four rounds to determine four teams which would be paired in semi-fi¬ nal rounds. The semi-final winners would then advance to a final round. Buhring and Salach were undefeated up until the final round when they lost on a 2-1 decision to place second. “The second place finish was really an anti-climax after our success in the Round Robin, especially since we had de¬ feated the team when we faced them in the Round Robin. Still, the second place is very respectable, ” commented Buhring. In addition to the debate ele¬ ment of the Redman forensic tour¬ nament, a speech meet was also held in which Salach placed sec¬ ond in the boys’ extemporaneous speaking competition. “All in all, the whole experience in Oklahoma was one of my more memorable ones. The competition was top rate, and I had a really good time as well, ’’ added Salach. “For my first year of varsity de¬ bate I really enjoyed the opportu¬ nity, ’’ stated Debbie Buhring. “I’ve bad many memorable ex¬ periences as a coach, and the trip to Oklahoma will always be right up there with all of them,’’ con¬ cluded Mr. Fix. 20 Debate ICE CASTLES The Inaugral dance was on No¬ vember 20, 1982, and the theme was “Ice Castles. ” As the couples danced to the band. Devotion, punch and snacks were served dur¬ ing the evening. The Inaugral is a turn-about dance where the girl asks the guy. The girl pays for the tickets, which were $10, and for the pictures. The guy pays for the dinner at a near¬ by resturant. Many students who did not at¬ tend the dance helped make the dance a success by helping with decorations, serving punch and snacks, or helped with the coat check. Inaugural 21 22 Plays OKLAHOMA Morton’s annual play for the 1982-83 school year was sponsored by the drama department. After casting the leading rolls to Rob Gerka, who played Curley, and Michele Moskalick, who played the part ofLaurey in October, the cast began rever¬ sals in November, for the performances which took place on January 21, 22, 27, and 28.

Morton High offers 11 interscholastic sports for those inclined to participate. The sports vary from football, basketball, baseball, tennis, soccer, track, wrestling, golf, swimming, vol¬ leyball, and cross country. The student builds the body in different ways by participating in more than one sport. One usually participates in a fall sport and then, a spring sport. If a student excells in a certain sport, one could continue participating in the sport in college. Stu¬ dents are able to gain scholarships, if they are phys¬ ically and mentally inclined, which help pay for col¬ lege tuition. Through interscholastic sports, one can obtain a strong body along with the strong mind that is gained through education.

Then comes the walls, flooring, interior design, and finally the lands¬ caping for the final touch. In gaining an education, one must start at the be¬ ginning, the foundation. First, the student must take the required classes, which the majority are taken in the first two years of high school. Then one goes on to take the courses that that person thinks will be the best for the future, and a wide variety of the general study classes are offered at Morton for just that purpose. As in the example of building the dream house, you become much wiser about plumbing, engineering, and carpentry. Whereas, this holds true for the student — in the four years of high school — one can gain knowledge in many areas of formal education. ACADEMICS ENGLISH Apart from the academic classes required by the State of Indiana, Morton offers special academic classes as well as a va¬ riety of electives. English is taken to refresh and improve one’s ability and skills. In order to graduate stu¬ dents need to have eight credits in English. This year English V and English VI were added to the regular required classes. Students learn correct gram¬ mar and spelling, receive a back¬ ground in literature, and expand vocabularies in order to improve and master the English lan¬ guage. Once a student has achieved the skills needed it will be easier to advance in the world. College bound students or stu¬ dents who want to improve in English take more complex classes such as advanced compo¬ sition or reading skills. Sophomore Andy Haladek gives a demonstration speech for Mrs. Burr’s English Class. Junior Cathy Campl and sophomore Ed gather information for a debate. 88 English Foreign Language Besides majoring in English, some students may feel a need to learn a foreign language as well. The Foreign Language De¬ partment at Morton offers a choice between Spanish, French, and German. Students begin by learning phrases and verbs. The more ad¬ vanced students go on to learn how to speak the language flu¬ ently. Along with learning the lan¬ guages, one also is taught of the custom. Foreign Language is becom¬ ing a big part of the world and this country. As more people mi¬ grate to the United States, there is a need for more interpretures. Other jobs may require a foreign language, such as Foreign News Correspondents or foreign em¬ bassy jobs. 89 MATH Classes in the math depart¬ ment at Morton varies from ba¬ sic general math to advanced math classes. Students are required to take at least two years of math to meet the state graduation re¬ quirements. Students who want to advance or major in math may take electives after the required years. Students on the general stud¬ ies program take general math for the two years required. Stu¬ dents learn the basics of math. College preparatory students have algebra and geometry as re¬ quirements. Algebra and geome¬ try gives students an indepth study of math. Another program in math is business classes for students who plan to lead a business ca¬ reer. Junior Kelly O’Brien programs an equation on the computer. 90 Math BUSINESS Morton’s business department prepares students for general of¬ fice, secretarial jobs or account¬ ing careers. Timing bow many words one can do in a minute and taking dictation in shorthand are a few of the skills taught in the busi¬ ness classes. These classes are typing, shorthand, notehand, and clerical practice. Each class is based on secretarial employ¬ ment. Math is also included in this area. Accounting teaches stu¬ dents bow to keep books and do other mathematical jobs. Gener¬ al business is another class which teaches one how to check accounting and the different types of insurance. Students who go into office jobs it is to their benefit to take clerical practice, which teaches the student how to operate office machinery. Business 91 SCIENCE Science is the explanation why we are the way we are, and the environment is the way it is. In Science classes, students learn of life and the theories of life. The human body and the structure of life are studied in the required classes of biology and health and safety. Physical Science is offered as a require¬ ment for students who want to learn “matter”, instead of biol¬ ogy- If students want to further their knowledge of life and its secrets, classes such as zoology and animal behavior are offered as electives. In each class the student observes the behavior of animals by experiments which pertain to pulse, respiration, and reflexes of animals. The study of plants, flowers, and trees are taught in botany. College bound students may take additional classes Chemis¬ try and Physics. 92 Science Senior Doug questions his test in Mr. Jerry SOCIAL STUDIES Between the months of August and October, 1451, Christopher Columbus made bis voyage to America. Such facts can only come from Social Studies where students receive a rounded edu¬ cation of history and take a look at what is happening today in government and economics. Required classes in Social Studies are U.S. History and government. Along with re¬ quirements, electives such as world history, geography, cur¬ rent problems, pbyschology, and economics are offered to expand ones knowledge. Social Studies not only touch¬ es in the areas of situation of the past and present, but it also gi ves students a look at the behavior patterns of people. Social Studies 93 HOME ECONOMICS The Home Economic classes are taken to prepare a student for homemaking. Some students may not know how to cook and clean, or make clothes. With the classes offered for the home economics, stu¬ dents are also taught how to deal with the domestic problems in the home. These classes are not only for girls to learn, but they are also beneficial to boys who may grow up to be bachelors or even mar¬ ried men with a working wife. These classes are not re¬ quired, but to some the courses are beneficial. Sophomore Lydia Martinez examines the material for loose threads. 94 Home Economic INDUSTRIAL ARTS Industrial Arts teaches one the skills needed to become me¬ chanically inclined. In the shop classes students learn bow to put together a mo¬ tor, make furnishings, and work with electrical equipment. Other classes teach a student how to construct and make drafts of houses and buildings. Students that take industrial art may continue on to a school of mechanical technology. This prepares a student for such jobs as auto mechanics, draftsman, and electrical engineering. Industrial Art 95 Mr. Mayerik demonstrates to his class how to saw a piece of wood to the shape they need. FINE ARTS Fine Arts, Morton’s music depart¬ ment, offers students a chance to ex¬ press their talents and for some to develop talents. The fine arts department offers classes such as band, girls choir, con¬ cert choir, ensemble, and music the¬ ory. The classes teach students about music and proper breathing when singing, and to work to the best of their ability. The band class performs at the football games, in two or three pa¬ rades during the school year. Mortons choir groups have demon¬ strate their talents by appearing in public concerts and singing on WJOB during the holidays. Junior Luanne Stanley and Sophomore Mary Kay Johnson practice their clarinets for the performance at the game. Senior Michelle Moskalich and junior Michelle Muffett practice scales in 96 Fine Arts PHYSICAL EDUCATION Sweaty gym suits, and ripped tennis shoes are just a few of the sights after a week of gym classes. In physical education, stu¬ dents are taught the skills and coordination used in sports such as tennis, golf, football, softball and swimming. All students are required to take one year of gym in order to meet the graduation require¬ ments. At the end of the year a girl and a boy are chosen as the most physically fit. In order to be chosen one must participate in a fitness contest that includes sit- ups, chin-ups, shuttle run, and a 50 yard dash, to the best of their ability. For students wishing to con¬ tinue in physical education, the course Advanced P.E. is offered as an elective. This class is de¬ signed for the more athletically inclined student. Physical Education 97 1 Three administrative members, 66 faculty mem¬ bers, and 16 additional staff members make up the leadership in one capacity or another at Morton High School. The bulk of the Morton High School staff, the faculty, work together not only to educate the 1,200 member, student body, but also provide continuity in extra-curricular activities. A number of teachers work for the so called “extra¬ duty.” The activities include from those who sponsor classes, clubs, organizations, and those who work at the athletic events. Also, the 13 member coaching staff who head the 14 different athletic teams. The additional staff members specialize in the technical areas and the administrators work to unify the entire school. As it has been said, “If you can read this, thank a teacher. ” A FACULTY NEW YEAR BRINGS MORE CHANGES The 1982-83 school year brought about many changes in this years staff.

Faculty 109 Filling out college applications, talking with armed force recruiters, or just counting the days until one can sleep until noon are some of the experiences a senior faces as the high school years come to an end. As a child most said, “When 1 grow up, I want to be a” ... (anything from an astronaut to a farmer) But, by age ten each student probably has changed occupa¬ tions at least ten times. Now as a senior, it’s time to choose from one of those numerous ideas or decide on a new one. Even though it may be difficult to realize, it ' s true. The end of the high school years has come. -4s in a fireworks display, the end is called the grand finale. This is where all the loudest and best fireworks are displayed. This applies to the senior as, the senior is the best mandatory education ' s grand finale. J SENIOR CLASS MAKES BEST OF ’82-’83 Since this was the last year of high school for the Class of ’83, several joined in on the many activities that occured during this past school year. Homecoming was a prime time for seniors. They brought their efforts forward in constructing the winning float and defeating the underclassmen for the spirit stick. The year will have a special place in the mind of Chris Dujan who was voted the 1982 Homecoming Queen during half time of the Morton Chicago Washington Football game on September 27. Some seniors used their last year of high school to try for different scholarships, nominations or awards. Among the various awards given out during the 1982-83 school year was the National Merit Scholarship A ward. This award is given for perfor¬ mance in the preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. Jackie Sufak and Rob Gerka won Semi-Finalist Nominations and Scott Hankins and Tim Salach were presented with Letters of Commendation. The senior class and faculty chose Tim Salach as the recipient of the 1982 Daughter’s of American Revolution award. The DAR award is given yearly to the senior who shows good leadership, depend¬ ability, service, and patriotism. Bob Balczo received a nomination to participate in the annual Senate program in Washington D.C. To be eligible to participate in the Senate program, one must be a citizen of the United States, a perma¬ nent resident of the state in which he she is nomin¬ ated, and must be serving in an elected capacity such as class officer.

LAURA DAWN - Teachers Asst. 1 WALTERS, JIM P. 132 Underclass When one attends a concert, they see so many different faces. One begins to think, “Do I look like that?”, “Am that thin?”, or “Wow, he’s got good looks. ” The same general questions must run through the freshmen’s mind as they are faced with 1,000 new faces on the first days of high school. After completion of the sophomore year, one has made it halfway. Now all of the faces of teachers and students, and classes are familiar to the student. But then as a junior, all of the faces have become good friends and associates. Still, the faces have changed. Hairstyles are different, braces have come off, and students are taller. The underclassmen anxiously await the completion of the three years so that they will no longer be the “underclass”. UNDERCLASS CLASS OF ’84 The juniors had a busy year in 1982-83 in preparing for the Junior Senior Prom on April 29tb at Wicker Park Club House, which the junior class sponsors each year. The theme, “Just Between You and Me”, was voted on by the class. Junior year is thought of as a working year because of the financial responsibilities of the prom. The students raised money by selling can¬ dy and sponsored a dance. The class of ’84 discovered that the junior year is also a working year academically. Juniors kept busy throughout the year working on U.S. History and Am erican Literature, which are re¬ quired for graduation. Classes in the Science, Business, Math, English, Industrial Arts, Music, and Social Studies departments were taken as electives. Students also took the Scholastic Apti¬ tude Test in preparation for the college they plan to attend in the fall, after completing their senior year. One of the highlights in 1982-83 for the class of ’84 was Homecoming, in which the juniors placed second in float competition. A few privileges also came along with the re¬ sponsibilities of junior year. The class, who was second only to seniors, finally became “upper¬ classmen” for the first time since coming to Morton. Now the Class of ’84 takes on the re¬ sponsibility of “ruling the school. ” Ray Aguilar Lisa Alaniz Roy Alice Hank Antkowiak Kris Ashcraft Kim Bach Don Bacso Sue Bair § § r ft E $ a Jim Balczo Melissa Ballard Michelle Ballentine Janet Baranowski Adrianne Barnes Cindy Bat liner Mark Beal 0 $ 0 ' % Dawn Bednar Phil Benton Rich Berrones Brian Bewley Glen Blackburn Michele Blalock Sandie Bonomo Joan Borchert f s i»».

The class of ’85 had a good start by selling M M’s tQ raise money for the 1984 Junior Senior Prom and the Wicker Park Club House has been reserved for the event. One of the privileges of being a sophomore was being eligible to order a class ring. Students picked out the ring of their choice from the display at school or a local jeweler. Sophomores showed their school spirit by win¬ ning the chain link competition sponsored by the cheerleaders at Homecoming. Classes competed by donating a nickel for every link to make their chain the longest. The class of ’85 met their academic requirements for the year by taking Biology, English 3 4, and a Math class — General Math, Algebra, or Geome¬ try. 140 Sophomores 0 r 0 Ron Gabberl John Gallagos John Gassner Dare Garza Liliana Gediemeric Shelley George Rick Golgart Ed Gonya Sophomores 141 Rushing to the cafeteria after third hour paid off for Tony Hillard as he was served first.

Now, a whole new lifestyle is underway for the Class of 1986. Middle school and high school hare many differ¬ ences, but each year a new class must make the adjustment. High school presented new courses, new teachers, and new schedules all at once; and the freshmen had to try to fit in to the new sur¬ roundings. Although the first year is the hardest; the tradi¬ tional beginning is over, and it’s time to turn atten¬ tion to the sophomore year. The sophomore year will be focused on preparing for the Junior Senior prom and the purchasing of class rings. The year 1982 closed leaving the freshmen with their first year of high school memories. Although the frosh may not agree, they are the luckiest class at Morton since the freshmen have three years remaining on what will someday be referred to as “The good old days. ” Brent Adams Tom Adams Greg Aguilera Don Allard Lori Allee Jeff Allen Erik Anderson Mike Andrews m el fa ft Is Angela Anguiano John Archibald Tony Arena Laura Arredondo Brian Aube Karen Aube Tammy Aubrey Carol Axarides ft r © o Tom Balczo Flavio Baldoni Emma Ball William Ball Terri Ballentine Jim Balta Linda Barker .

One knows that courtesy, patients, and pleasantness are all a must. If one attempts to sell by telephone, a pleasing voice is required. If one attempts to sell in person, good grooming is essential. Also, advertising the product plays a major part of the actual success of selling the product. In advertisements catchy logos, prestigious people, and bright colors are used to capture the attention of the public eye. Advertising can be done in many ways: newspapers, radio, and neon signs. Advertising can even be done in a yearbook. This section contains 30 pages of advertisements that the Top Hat staff sold to businesses and organi¬ zations. The advertising, in turn, paid for a portion of the total cost of the yearbook. j ADS 154 Ads AP DAVIS SPORTS, INC.

Every staff member worked diligently to achieve the goal of an outstanding, on- time yearbook. I would also like to thank Mr. Scott Markley, our advisor, who earnestly worked with us to help us achieve our goal. Also, Mr. Bob Henning, our Jos ten ' s representative, forgiving us his advice on what to do and what not to do, and Mr. Harry Duzik, of Bodie’s Photographers, for the majority of the photographs in this year’s book. Without all of this help, we would have never been able to convey the message of what we wanted our theme to be, “The Governor”, We chose the theme, “The Governor”, because be¬ ing a Governor will always be a part of our lives. As much as we anticipate graduation day, we’ll all prob¬ ably find ourselves in tears on that day. Why? Be¬ cause it will probably be remembered as the best four years of our lives. Think of all our fellow Governors: We have beauty, brainpower, atheletes, actor, musicians, and hundreds of other great futures. But most of all, the Governor’s have class. The Governor’s are a classy group of young adults. They strive to be the best at all they attempt. In view of all this, everyone of us should be proud to say, “I’m a Governor!” Top Hat Staff Managing Editor Brenda Mulhern Opening Editors . Sue Salapski Nancy Sarver Academic Editor .
