Free time, academics, friends, sports, and general activities are all a part of the students ' environment. Several of the Morton stu¬ dents also spend time out¬ side of school activities. Some take jobs and others have hobbies or spend time with friends. Most of the Morton stu¬ dents reflect back to the high school years as some of the best years of life. High school gives everyone the chance to express them¬ selves according to each one ' s ideas and concepts. As a student body, Morton also carries out their own type of lifestyle. Academics and sports are activities which provide a group in¬ volvement. Also, general activities in the different clubs and orga¬ nizations provide for group participation. Students learn to work together and to communicate with other people. As the years pass, Mor¬ ton ' s reflection changes ac¬ cording to the type of stu¬ dent body. Yet Morton has many achievements throughout the school years which are a part of Morton ' s overall reputation. Toward the end of the school years at Morton, each student has made his or her own lifestyle, and each has their own ...

COMING AT YA On the night of September 30, 1983, Angie Keutzer, es¬ corted by Ruben Urbano, was crowned 1983 Home¬ coming Queen by last year’s Queen, Chris Dujan. The court consisted of Mary Beth Carmon and Man¬ uel Lopez, Sue Gonzales and Richard Berrones, Kellie O’Brien and Jerry Ryzewski, Shelley Pulkowski and Dan Guzek, and Michelle Taylor and Scott Young. The Homecoming Theme was " Coming At Ya”, based on the 3-D craze during the summer. Spirit week started off with Monday as semi-formal day, Tuesday as pajama day, Wednesday as sports day, Thursday as punk day, and Friday as traditional Red and Grey day. Other activities such as decorating the halls and the cheering block were orga¬ nized by the booster club.

Whether the lifestyle is in athletic ability or just the spir¬ it, students become involved. The athletic program offers fifteen sports that one can be involved with. Students learn to work as a team and how to take on the pressure of the practices and the game. Many of these stu¬ dents spend three to four hours each day after school. These students which par¬ ticipate with athletic activities show a part of their own IMAGES. FORMAL IMAGES On April 29, 1983, the Class of 1984 hosted the an¬ nual Junior-Senior Prom, at the Wicker Park Social Cen¬ ter in Highland. The theme, “Just Be¬ tween You and Me”, was carried out in the red and white decorations. The 124 couples attending Prom danced to the music of “Sun¬ set” and “Looker”. After the evening of for¬ mal manners and dress, some couples went to local beaches, while others went to Chicago. This one night of being with a special person in a special place enhanced the Morton students ' . IM¬ AGES. Denise Meadows helps adjust John Quil¬ len’s tie before entering the dance.

The 1983 commencement exercises were in the Mor¬ ton Auditorium. The gradu¬ ating seniors were dressed in red cap and gow ns. The Morton Concert Choir performed several selec¬ tions. Valedictorian Tim Sa- lach spoke of the future and said goodbye to his class¬ mates. Salutatorian Garry Graban asserted the value of self-image for future suc¬ cesses. Mrs. Kathleen Hill from the Board of School Trust¬ ees and Mr. Richard French, Assistant to the Superinten¬ dent, presented the diplo¬ mas to the class. Class President Heidi Mandichak read the class creed and the cheers and tears began as the members of the class flipped their tas¬ sels to the right side of their caps, becoming official graduates of Morton Senior High. The graduating Class of 1983 are applauded after they have re¬ ceived their diplomas. 18 Graduation MHS PRESENTS ‘MATCHMAKER’ The Morton Top Hat Theatre presented “The Matchmaker” as the organization’s production of the year. “The Matchmaker”, by Thorton Wilder, is the story of an old mer¬ chant of Yonkers.

Top Hat would like to thank The Times Staff for their permission to reprint this article. The ailing steel industry was the Calumet Region ' s top story in 1983. Soaring health care costs and utility rate hike battles also lead the list of the Re¬ gion ' s top 10 stories for 1983, as chosen by The Times’ edi¬ tors. The year also saw political history in the making with the election of a Republican may¬ or in Hammond and the first black mayor in Chicago. And the long, hot summer of 1983 won’t soon be forgotten by Indiana and Illinois farm¬ ers, some of whom lost up to half of their crops because of the drought. The top ten stories for 1983 are: STEEL When the 1983 industry losses are tallied, they are ex¬ pected to reach the $2 billion mark — an improvement over last year’s $3.6 billion in¬ dustrywide loss. The United Steelworkers union lost, too, when it signed a historic concessions agree¬ ment on March 1, giving back $1.25 an hour and a portion of the benefit package. The biggest story was at U.S. Steel’s South Works, where the battle for a rail mill and the fear of a shutdown plaughed workers all year. Last week, U.S. Steel said it will not build the rail mill, but it will not shut down the two operating departments there either. The company offered no committments as to how long the mill will continue op¬ erating. On a more positive note, Jones Laughlin Steel Corp. unveiled a continuous caster at its Indiana Harbor Works, while Inalnd Steel Co. and U.S. Steel Corp. announced plans to build similar facilities at their plants in East Chicago and Gary, respectively. Inland and Bethlehem Steel Corp. began operating their new heat-treating lines, which will help them meet their new higher quality stan¬ dards of the auto industry. The industry has operated at about 55 percent this year, up from 48.4 percent last year. HEALTH COST An exhaustive, six-month study by Times Staff Writers Lori Olszewski and Timothy Bannon revealed that most of the Calumet Region’s not-for- profit hospitals make a profit above the national average for hospitals. St. Anthony’s Medi¬ cal Center in Crown Point was the most expensive place to stay among 14 Regional hospi¬ tals in Indiana and Illinois studies by The Times from 1978 to 1981. Following the series which was published in March, St. Anthony began lowering its rates. Lawrence T. Filosa was removed as the hospital’s ad¬ ministrator on May 31, and the 16-member board of directors was dissolved. The Times re¬ ported in August that Filosa headed a network of not-for- profit corporations associated with the hospital which paid him $344,193 from July 1,1981 and June 30, 1982, including $180,000 a year as president and chief operating officer at St. Anthony’s hospital. UTILITY COST Indiana ’s Public Service Commission granted North¬ ern Indiana Public Service Co. a 20 percent, $161.6-million rate increase in August. On December 21, however, the PSC began reconsidering if NIPSCO’s construction costs for the $543-million Schahfer Unit 17 power plant are rea¬ sonable. PSC members said if the rates aren’t reasonable, re¬ funds will be ordered. Commonwealth Edison filed a request with the Illinois Commerce Commission to in¬ crease revenues by $462.2 mil¬ lion annually starting April 1984. ELECTION For the first time in 32 years, a Republican was elect¬ ed mayor of Hammond. Thom¬ as McDermott defeated Ed¬ ward Raskosky — the incum¬ bent two-term Democrat — with 61 percent of the vote on Nov. 8. Raskosky’s campaign manager. Brad Bodney, said he was aware three weeks be¬ fore the election that Ras¬ kosky wouldn’t win. Thomas McDermott was elected in Nov. 1983 as the first Republican mayor of Hammond in 32 years. 26 Local The Hammond election also produced another unique twist-a tie vote in the 4th Dis¬ trict Council race that was de¬ cided on Dec. 23. Lake Superi¬ or Judge Cordell Pinkerton ruled in favor of Republican Janet Moran and declared Democrat Mark Scholer ineli¬ gible to serve because he is a police officer. Scholer is ap¬ pealing the ruling. CH. ELECTION In a radically charged elec¬ tion campaign, Rep. Harold Washington was elected Chi¬ cago’s first black mayor on April 12, defeating Republican Bernard Epton with more than 51 percent of the vote. Soon after taking office, Washington’s 21 black and liberal aldermen squared off in council chambers with a group of 29 white aldermen led by 10th Ward Alderman Edward Vrdolyak. WEATHER With the exception of Cook County, every county in the Calumet Region was declared an agricultural disaster last summer because of the long, dry spell. Corn and soybean yeilds were 30 to 50 percent lower than last year’s levels in most Region counties. New¬ ton County crops were the hardest hit, with a 70 percent loss reported. Because of agriculture di¬ saster declarations farms are eligible for federal assistance for 1984 plantings. But tighter federal restriction on disaster loans mean the number of peo¬ ple who can apply is limited. WILLARDO Lake County Coroner Dr. Albert T. Willardo, convicted of theft by a Lake County jury, resigned May 22. Lake Criminal Judge James Clem¬ ent reduced Willardo’s felony conviction to a misdemeanor, then suspended a one-year prison sentence on the condi¬ tion that Willardo resign. Clement also ordered Wil¬ lardo to make restitution for $4,299 in fradulent milage claims which were diverted to his campaign in 1978. Willardo’s successor — Dr. Daniel D. Thomas of Gary — was elected June 4. KOMYATTI A Hammond mother and son, a Morton graduate, each were sentenced to 100years in prison on December 28 for the March 20 dismemberment¬ slaying of Paul Komyatti Sr., whose badly decomposed body was found buried in six plastic bags along the Lake Michigan shoreline in May. Lake Criminal Court Judge James Letringer sentenced Rosemary Komyatti, 58, and Paul Komyatti, Jr., 18, each to 55 years for murder and 45 years for consipiracy. Mrs. Komyatti is to serve the time consecutively; Paul Jr. is to serve the sentence concur¬ rently. William Vandiver, 35, the elder Komyatti’s son-in-law, faces the death penalty for his December 19 murder convic¬ tion. Vandiver’s wife, Mar- iann, testified against her mother, brother, and husband. Charges against her were re¬ duced from murder to a lesser felony in exchange for her tes¬ timony. ANTON Lake County Sheriff Chris Anton died Oct. 9 of cancer after serving just nine months in office. In an election decided by Lake County Democratic pre- Former Lake County Sheriff Chris Anton died of cancer last year while serving in office. cinct committeemen on Oct. 29, former Lake County Com¬ missioner Rudy Bartolomei was elected sheriff over An¬ ton’s widow — Anna Nuzzo Anton — by 10 votes. DRUG BUST A total of 41 persons were indicted in July after a five- year federal drug investiga¬ tion, dubbed “Operation Sky- Caine”, revealed that 120,000 pounds of marijuana and 2,300 pounds of cocaine valued at $139 million were illegally im¬ ported. It was the largest drug conspiracy case in Indiana’s history. Federal authorities charged two Calumet Region men — Ronald Markowski, 44, of East Chicago and George Chiatello, 42, of Burnham — with oper¬ ating a continuing criminal enterprise involving the il¬ legal importation of cocaine and marijuana. Local MARINES TOP NATIONAL NEWS On the morning of October 21, 1983, the Marines of the U.S. peacekeeping force in Beirut, Lebanon, were sleep¬ ing in their barracks at the Beirut International Airport. At 6:20 AM, a terrorist truck laden with dynamite barged past the guards and crashed into the building. Moments later the building exploded. During the next several hours rescue workers re¬ moved the bodies of 241 dead U.S. Marines. Rescuers lift a U.S. Marine on a stretcher out of the wreckage of the U.S. Command Post in Beirut. U.S. LOSES The United States lost the American Cup for the first time in the 132 years history of the event. In September, Australian II beat the U.S. Liberty in the seventh leg by 41 seconds, making the final score 4-3. The event, one of yachtings most prestigious, was held off the coast of Newport, Rhode Island. EVACUATED The late winter early spring of 1983 brought record warm temperatures to the midwest states. However, the West Coast was not so lucky as rain storms caused millions of dollars in damage. The tides pounded the coastline forcing families to leave their homes as the water swept houses and trailers into the ocean.

Though the re¬ cord might not show it, this was a successful year for the gridman. The team achieved the goals that were set at the beginning of the year. The goals include implementing a strong passing game and obtaining a more positive at¬ titude as a team. There were also some outstanding indi¬ vidual performances.

The team as a whole had a somewhat disappointing season, finishing with a 3-7 overall record.

Students must first pass several require¬ ments before being inducted every March. Seniors must have a 3.2 grade point average and juniors must have a 3.5 grade point aver¬ age before they can even receive an applica¬ tion for NHS. Students must also be in¬ volved in community and extracurricular activites. They must excel in areas of schol¬ arship, leadership, and service. The faculty then chooses the members after reviewing the applications. The Debate Team, coached by Mr. Doug Fix, traveled to meets in Highland, Colum¬ bia City, Butler University, West Lafayette, and Notre Dame this year. Losing one half of the team to graduation, the team was very young and inexperienced. Senior Debbie Buhring was the only returning varsity member on the team. Composed mostly of sophomores and juniors, the group did very well winning 80% of their competitions. These students have the opportunity of im¬ proving public speaking skills which will be a lot of help in the future. National Honor Society — Front Row: Debbie Buhring, Kim Nowacki, Mary Gillis.

ACADEMICS Division 87 CLASSES TEACH SKILLS The academic section of Mor¬ ton not only includes traditional classes but also several different types of academic classes and a variety of electives. The traditional classes of Eng¬ lish, math, and science are main¬ ly to improve the basics. Taking more complex classes from such electives as world and English literature to develop¬ mental reading and advanced composition is for those who wish to continue in formal educa¬ tion. The Foreign Language De¬ partment offers French, Ger¬ man, and Spanish, which may be taken all four years of high school. In these classes, begin¬ ning students learn simple phrases and verb conjugations. Advanced students learn actual conversations. The Social Studies Department offers more than the require¬ ments of U.S. history for juniors, and government for seniors. Eco¬ nomics was changed from a re¬ quired course to a recommended course for seniors. The depart¬ ment also offers such courses as geography, psychology, sociolo¬ gy and world history. They have basic, yet a wide field of studies of the past, present, and inner studies of social life. The Science Department has a vast array of courses. One learns the basic structure of life in the biology and health and safety classes. Elective classes consist of zoology, animal behavior, bot¬ any, physics, chemistry, and earth science. In these classes, students learn the process of life. In classes as zoology and animal behavior, students observe the behavior of animals by experi¬ ments. Morton offers a variety of math classes ranging from general math to calculus. College pre¬ paratory students are required to take algebra and geometry. Also offered is business math which deals with business careers. The business courses, includ¬ ing typing, shorthand, clerical practice, accounting and general business, are also important to learning. They offer students the basis of general offices, secretar¬ ial work or accounting careers. The Fine Arts Department consists of art, instrumental and vocal music. The music depart¬ ment incudes band, music the¬ ory, music history, and several choirs. The band performs for football and basketball games and march in parades. The con¬ cert and mixed choirs sing in public concerts. Art provides stu¬ dents with an opportunity to ex¬ press his her creativity. Consumer Education offer courses as child development, foods and clothing. These pre¬ pare students for future home¬ making. The purpose of home economics is to help people with the problems of domestic chores as proper dress, and how to cook. Students develop an understand¬ ing of health care throughout the life cycle in family health. The Industrial Arts Depart¬ ment consists of electronics, met¬ als, woods, and mechanical draw¬ ing classes. Each class is de¬ signed to help students who plan to go on to careers dealing with Industrial Technology. Such things as blueprint reading and drawing, fixing machines, and making projects are all part of these courses. The Physical Education De¬ partment comes next. All stu¬ dents are required to take one year of gym to meet graduation requirements. Students are taught the basic skills in such sports as tennis, football, basket¬ ball, swimming, and golf. Ad¬ vanced courses consist of further physical improvement. 88 Academics Academics 89 Senior Dennis Toporek sketch¬ es in mechanical drawing class Preparing slides is one of the many assignments in biology. 90 Academics Academics 91 Dan Sabolewski, junior, repairs a carburetor in power mechanics class.

The teachers get involved in the shaping of the students both inside and outside of school. When students become involved in extra¬ curricular activities they participate and learn from their experiences and mistakes. By being given responsibilities and being guided, the students learn independence and develop con¬ fidence in themselves. A student learns more from a teacher than just the subject the teacher is teaching. By helping out the students in various ways, the teachers pose an impression on the teen-agers, so that when the students get older, they will project on what the teachers have taught. Students may look up to the adults and fol¬ low their examples. Students watch the adults take their actions into consideration, and learn from these experiences. ‘The teachers and the staff at Morton are helping to develop society, and will help a stu¬ dent, in the future, to become responsible. Along with developments and responsibil¬ ities there were some changes in the faculty this year. Mr. Anthony Waring, art teacher and head of the art department, retired after 30years of teaching at Morton. The new teacher is Mr. Rob Fischer, who taught at Gavit High School before coming to Morton. Mr. Walter Ruff re¬ tired at the end of the 1983 school year after teaching social studies, Latin, and English for 36years. Miss Colantha Hill, who taught Home Ec for 3 years, is now teaching at Hammond High. Mrs. Mary Lacy, who taught business, was also transferred to Hammond High. Mr. Joel Romero, who taught Industrial arts for 5 years is now at Clark High School. In addition, Mrs. Carol Brundidge, Social Worker of the Year for the state of Indiana, will work inside of Morton as well as the other schools in Hess- ville. Mr. Earnest Alexander Business, Dept.

Miss Clair, valedictorian of Mendon Township High School’s Class of 1941, earned a bachelor’s degree from Western Illinois University and a master’s degree from Loyola University in Chi¬ cago. ' She was a very caring person, ” commented Principal Steve Sta vros. “What really impressed me was that she was always willing to do that little extra for the students; even if it meant bending the rules sometimes. ” Faculty 109 SENIOR Division 111 SENIORS BID ADIEU The time has come to donn our caps and gowns, and bid a teary adieu to all as the last year of high school has ended. Though friends part and life brings dramatic changes, the memories will linger on. The senior year was filled with happiness and sadness. As June neared, memories in¬ vaded the minds of many, and thoughts from the last few years of high school came rush¬ ing back. Of course, the most vivid memories were those of the final year experienced at Morton. Senior year consisted of many activities. Homecoming was a special time for the Class of 1984 because it was the last one. Powder Puff, which was scheduled during homecom¬ ing week, added to the excitement. Special events for most seniors were the last winter formal in November and the Ju¬ nior Senior Prom in April. Some students will always hold special memories of the awards and scholarships received during the last year of high school. Graduation brings serious thinking about one ' s past, present, and future. For some col¬ lege is the next step; for others there is mar¬ riage, work, or just a brief time to decide what to do in life.

The question running through the minds of most juniors is, “How can senior year arrive so soon?” During freshman year, becoming a senior seemed so far away but the years passed quickly, and the time has arrived for the juniors to serve their long waited term at the top of the “totem pole”. As freshman, what classes to take was the big¬ gest decision and what class ring to purchase was the biggest decision during the sophomore year. The main decision junior year was the theme and all involved in making a successful prom. The theme chosen for the 1983-1984 prom, which took place at the Wicker Park Social Center on April 27, was “Steppin Out” and the colors selected for the occasion were blue and silver. At the time, the decisions were of great impor¬ tance but do not compare to those to be made in the years ahead. Now suddenly, the juniors are faced with the decision of what will become of one ' s life after graduation. That determination of which could effect the outcome of one’s entire future. This year was also filled with a lot of fun as the junior girls were given the chance to compete in the annual Powder Puff game. Although they were defeated by the seniors, 34-26, the juniors never lost their spirit. The Class of ' 85 looks ahead with great anticipa¬ tion and some with a bit of sadness for just as quick¬ ly as senior year arrived it will also come to an end. Some juniors believe that senior year is a time for having fun and not worrying about grades, others believe that it is a time to do the best they can academically to prepare themselves for college. But, all will focus on making of memories that will stay fresh in the minds of the Class of ' 85 for many years to come. Bill Adkins Jorge AI tier!

The time is finally coming when the Class of ’86 can safely say that they are “upperclassmen.” Without a doubt, the Class of ’86 is halfway to the top. In the midst of the 1983-84 school year a num¬ ber of things took place for the sophomore class, one of them being the traditional purchasing of class-rings. With the help of class sponsors, Mr. David Lind¬ sey and Ms. Nora Mann, class officers, and mem¬ bers of the sophomore class, raffle tickets were sold to raise money for the 1985 prom. The Class of ’86 would like to attempt something totally dif¬ ferent for their prom but the final plans are still in the making. The sophomore class also worked hard aca¬ demically to meet graduation requirements — bi¬ ology, English 3 4 and a math class — geometry or math 3 4 were just a few of the classes taken. Homecoming was not an exceptionally happy time for the sophomore class, as their float placed last in the homecoming parade. With junior year in mind, the Class of ’86 bid a farewell to the title “underclassmen”. 140 Sophomore 142 Sophomore Sophomore 143 Students take advantage of the last few minutes of class. 144 Sophomore Sophomore 145 FROSH BEGIN The Class of ’87got off to an extra difficult start as freshmen. Along with the traditional problems that come along with starting high school such as initiation, the freshman were left without a class sponsor. The freshman soon found out that fitting in at high school was not as big a deal as it once seemed to be, as it did not take very long for one to get acquainted with the system at Morton. The freshman class did not take a big part in homecoming due to the problem of not having sponsors but the class was represented by Sheryl Reyes and Shannon Doughman as freshman at¬ tendants in the homecoming court. English 1 2, health and safety, physical edu¬ cation, and a math class — Algebra or Math 1 2, were just a few of the classes taken during one’s freshman year to begin to meet graduation re¬ quirements. The Class of ’87 is beginning to consider the agenda that they will be faced with during the sophomore year. Getting started with fundraisers to prepare themselves financially for prom and the purchasing of classrings are just a few exam¬ ples found on the list. All of the students life he she was told what to do and when to do it but seldom told why, as freshman, one discovers that a big advantage of high school is being able to make some of one’s own decisions, the student also discovers that he must likewise learn to live with these decisions. 146 Freshmen Freshmen 147 148 Freshmen Freshmen 149 150 Freshmen Freshmen 151 BURGERS SUPERMARKET 165th And Columbia Hammond 12 Ridge Road 1830 45th Ave. Munster Munster ( OUN1MI - ' l LA I m tClX h. 1 Wolfe, Joan Borchert and Lisa Zur- awski go shopping for a weekend party. 154 Advertising SOLINA’S BAKERY Complete Assortment Of Bakery Goods Special Decorated Cakes For All Occasions 6712 Kennedy Ave. 844-6815 KENWOOD LANES VIRGIL HUBER FUNERAL HOME 6311 Kennedy Ave. 7051 Kennedy Avenue Hammond, Indiana Hammond 845-0980 844-1020 Sophomore Class Officers Maureen Gruener President Basilio Lopez Vice-President Tierney Rodda Secretary Q.T.

staff. Everyone worked to¬ gether wonderfully and met their deadlines. The whole staff worked hard in putting this yearbook together. Whether it was drawing up layouts, cropping pictures, selling ads or writing captions, everyone helped each oth¬ er. I’d also like to thank Mr. Scott Markley, our advisor, for all the help and inspiration. I don’t think that words can express what I learned from being involved in putting a yearbook together. It can be frustrating for an editor when he she had to do one thing over and over until it’s done correctly. While working on a yearbook or even a newspaper, one can nev¬ er expect to do something one time and get it right. It’s a process that takes patience, time, and devotion. We chose the theme “Images” because we feel it symbolizes our four years of high school. High school provides each student with an “image” of many different careers and lifestyles. It is the time when one must start considering an avenue. The avenue, in turn, may be chosen on an impression, an “image”, that he she received while in high school. We hope that each student at Morton will again read Top Hat several years from now and the book will provide the stimuli that brings back all of the good times and dreams that each student shared with friends. After all, they can say these are the bpst of times! Good Luck, Cindy Psuik Managing Editor The 1984 Top Hat contains 188 pages on 80 bound shadow paper. The book is smyth sewn andbound with rounded backed binding. The 800 copies of this book were published by Josten’s American Yearbook Company, located in Clarksville, Tennessee.
