This year’s first actual production by the Top Hat theatre was “The Curious Savage”, directed by Donn Edwards. During the course of the year, the theatre group usually performs about two plays or so but due to scheduling difficulty this year’s first play had to be cancelled. The first was a childrens play entitled “Woodland Christmas”. The crew of The Curious Savage consisted of: Director, Donn Edwards; Settings, Edwards; Ligh¬ ting, Joe Ecsi and Andy Sojka; Properties, Damon Widelski and Gene Ray; Set Construction, Mr. Ed¬ wards sixth hour Drama class; Sound Control, Craig Williams; Refreshments, Ann Stombaugh; Publici¬ ty Tickets, Dean Shanahan, Jim Smith, Steven Dills, and Andy Zawadski; Costumes, Stanley Elgas. During the course of the year the Top Hat The¬ atre group also performed at the annual young au¬ thors conference and sold fundraisers with the help of Mr. Edwards’ English classes. The Curious Savage was a three act play that was performed on February 20 and 21. The play is about a greedy family who wants to put their Mother away in a home so that they may take her ten million dollars. During the course of the play the Mother, Ethel, sends each of her children on a wild goose chase to find the money. Mrs. Paddy finds where the money is, but when she returns to retrieve it, it is missing. Miss Wilhelmina has taken and burned part of the money to show to Ethel’s children so they would think the money is gone. In the end, Miss Wilhelmina turns the bonds over to Ethel.

Hard Work Pays Off The 1986 football team had a good, but challenging season this year. Even though they only had five experi¬ enced seniors on the team this year, they finished the sea¬ son with six wins and three losses. The practices were pushed harder this year, but, the practices are what developed their positive attitudes. Senior Kevin Enright commented, “The season was “The season was enjoyable and rewarding. The team worked very hard for a winning sea¬ son.” enjoyable and rewarding. The team worked very hard for a winning. We accomplished this goal even though we lost a lot of seniors the year before.” The team put a lot of hard work into this season. It was not easy. There was a lot of pressure, sweat, and bruises.

Although we didn’t win many games, the boys were a pleasure to coach because they never quit trying, and that’s all a coach can ask for.” UP FOR GRABS-Senior Kevin Enright and SETTING A SHOT-Junior Brett Parker is Frank Mrvan both go up for a rebound. being covered against his opponent while setting a shot.

When Sectional qualifier Wendy Nugent was asked her overall view on the team’s performance this year, she replied, “The younger girls did excellant. In a few years they will be leaders of an upcoming team. Hopefully, more girls will be on that team. ’’Overall, every girl did her individual best, and I feel that is a great accomplishment. Having more than two or three staying later to practice resulted in more making it to Sectionals. " CLEARING THE HURDLE-Laura Pfeiffer shows great concentration and ability.

Golf Team Drives ' Forward Golf, many may think of it as a relaxing game, but to this year’s team consisting of six seniors, it was more than a relaxing game - it was a relaxing sport. These guys spent hours practicing while trying to keep the ball out of the sand traps and water holes. In order to enjoy a game of golf, you need some golf clubs and a healthy supply of golf balls. The team had a fair season with a record of 11 wins and eight losses. They played in the Rennsselaer Invita¬ tional Tourney scoring 381, putting them in 11th place. In the ILSC Conference Tourney they received a score of 370 and a second place. “The team members expected to play better than they did, and in that sense we were all disappointed.” - Coach Kepler After playing in the sectionals, with a score of 371, they ended their season with a 6th place finish. The All Conference players were Don Cox and Bill Edinger. When Coach Kepler was asked his overall view of the 1986 Golf team as a whole, he replied, “The team mem¬ bers expected to play better than they did and in that sense we were all disappointed.” Morton Wins First Title In 7 Years 54 Soccer The Morton Soccer team returned to it’s traditional winning ways in 1986. The kickmen compiled a record of 14 wins, 3 losses, and 1 tie. This was the largest amount of victories since 1978. The team was lead by Senior co-captains Jeff Orange and Dave Semon. This year’s starting line-up was com¬ prised of four Seniors, five Juniors, one Sophomore, and one Freshman. The kickmen started the season by beating Valparai¬ so and never looked back. Sophomore goalkeeper, Rick Cantrell, recorded seven shutouts during the year while the offense scored 37 goals in these games. “We feel that the 1986 team was as good as it was because of its overall team unity and a talented offense and defense which sparked our state bound victories.” -Seniors Joe Lemos and Troy Stavros After completing the season and winning the confer¬ ence tournament, the Govs went on to the annual Soccer Bowl. At the Soccer Bowl, the Govs played the Lake Sub¬ urban Conference Champions, the Portage Indians. After winning the conference tournament, the Govs went on to the annual Soccer Bowl. At the Soccer Bowl, the Govs played the Lake Suburban Conference Champions, the Portage Indians. Team honors went to Joe Villarreal, best mental atti¬ tude; Rick Cantrell, most improved; and the defense team of Jeff Orange, Jerry Czaja, Alfred Guerra, Brian Hudkins, and Rick Cantrell, was voted most valuable. When asked their views on this year’s team receiving the most victories since 1978, Joe Lemos and Troy Stav¬ ros replied, “We feel that the 1986 team was as good as it was because of its overall team unity and a talented of¬ fense and defense which sparked our state bound victo¬ ries.” LOOKING TO MAKE THE RIGHT PASS- WITH A POWERFUL KICK-Senior Dive Mike Hewlett attempts to head the ball to Semon displays his ability on the field, a teammate.

Get On The Ball With The J. V. Teams It has been a very disappointing season for this year’s Junior Varsity Volleyball Team. They had an overall sea¬ son of six wins and fourteen losses. Their record in confer¬ ence was four wins and fourteen losses, and the last game they played, which was against Chesterton resulted in a lost. As coach Debbie Lueken said, “It’s taken longer than I expected for them to play together as a team. It’s been an up and down battle.” The 1986-87 Morton Boy’s Junior Varsity Basket¬ ball Team had an outcome of three wins and seventeen losses. The team consisted of three Juniors, eight Sopho- “It’s taken longer than I expected for them to play together as a team.” mores, and one Freshman. They had a bad start with the first seven games as losses and then a win. There were more than twelve players at the begin¬ ning of the season however, a couple moved and others just dropped out. Next year there is expected to be twen¬ ty or so players trying out for the team.

Although their record was only 2-11 it certainly wasn’t any indica¬ tion of the improvement and progress that took place on this years team. Sherry Darnell was the only returning player from last years team. Stacey Harris led the team in 142 rebounds and 75 points. Coach Debbie Lueken says it’s been a pleasure coaching this years team and to look for the J.V. Basketball team to be more experienced and more competitive next year. The girls worked hard and improved throughout the season. The 1985-86 Freshmen Girls Basketball team con¬ sists of fifteen dedicated players. Coach Debbie Lueken says, “The girls worked hard and improved throughout the season.” Their win loss record was not any indication of how successful they were as a team. Amy Oranood is the most improved player this year, but each player played a special part on the team.

The 1986-87 Freshmen Football team played seven games this season. Their season record was one win, one forfeit, and five losses. The team started off well with the forfeit with Hor¬ ace Mann and the win against Clark. Robert Perez said, “Our season seemed to get off to a real good start especially with the forfeit and the win against Clark. I don’t understand what hap¬ pened, but after Gavit’s game things just kept going down hill.” Their team did have a lucky season because there were only mi¬ nor injuries, no major injuries. OPP.

Hard work The printing press was a major landmark in the history of mankind. The Publications program is still advancing. Communications have become more sophisticated, such as our switch to computers and more modernized presses and things, yet people still continue to have the same basic need to communicate with others. Publications try to fill that need, in both newspaper and yearbook. Both groups try to print what they feel is important and interesting to you. The year¬ book staff tries to fill you in on all school subjects and happenings to let you remember that particular year. The newspaper tries to tell you things you did not know and wanted to. The reason the newspaper does not come out as often as it used to is because they are now working with a smaller staff. However, it does have its good points. They now have more time to work on their pages and they can improve their ar¬ ticles and features. The Yearbook also has a small staff, but they worked as fast as possible because they do not want the ‘Top Hat’ yearbook to come out in the following fall. So, no matter how small the yearbook staff is, they try to make the book as good as it can possibly be in that amount of time. FINALL Y GETTING SERIOUS Junior. Amy Vernengo tries to finish a dummy page for the yearbook. 64 Publications Top Hat Continues On ... Both the yearbook and the newspaper are advancing their work more and more every year. Even though the news¬ paper is only four pages long, it still has many good qualities. The “Mortonite” staff tries to compile as much information into those four pages as possible. Each year they try to change something they didn’t like the year before. Even though it may only be a small thing it seems that every year the “Mortonite” seems to get a little bit better. The “Top Hat” staff also tries to change the yearbook every year so that you don’t have to read the same things year after year. They also try to change the books’ layout every year so that it looks a little different each year. Both staffs have tried their hardest and worked to their fullest potential to serve you with a newspaper, The “Mortonite”, once a month and with a yearbook once a year to give you the greatest possible memories of that past year. So, as you can see, with the advancing of the communications our newspaper and yearbook are advancing too. MORTONITE STAFF ROW ONE, Mrs. Gillard. Tabitha Dixon. Erika Madison.

The Vocal Section is made up of Girl’s Choir, Concert Choir, and Ensemble. The Ensemble is also known as the Vocal Ambassadors. Throughout the year all three groups have given many performances. They gave a Christmas concert as they do every year and the band also participat¬ ed. The Vocal Ambassadors (ENSEMBLE) performed at various places through out the year at people’s requests. They do not charge a fee, But people usually give them ten or twenty dollars as a donation for their services. The Vocal Ambassadors (ENSEMBLE) is like an honorary group for the vocal department. In order to be in it you must try out the year before when they hold the auditions. TRYOUTS consist of a dance routine and singing. The Vocal Section has improve over the years. They keep their costumes up to date as they do their music and routines. It seems as the time goes on, the music changes and so does the routines and the way people dress. And as all that changes, our choir changes with it.There is usually a good turnout for choir every year. Many people have alot of fun in choirs and their are many people who feel that if you have a good singing voice then you should join. ROW ONE; Jamie Gwathney. Carl Phillippe. ROW TWO; Lana Moskalick.

They even had their own section put aside in the gym so they could play through-out the whole-entire game. They also were ac¬ tive in a few parades this year. They were in the Homecom¬ ing Parade, the Little Red School House Parade, and others. Many more students are participating this year also. The three drum majors, Lori Harney, Linda Schmidt, and Wendy VanDyke and others that wanted to improve their playing skills all went to camp over the summer. They had a fundraiser in which they sold cheese and sausages and they also sold oranges and grapefruits. Another big fundraiser for them was “tag day” mem¬ bers of the band stood on busy intersections asking for do¬ nations to the band. If they donated money they received a tag letting other people know that they donated money to the Morton High School Marching Band. As you can see, as the years go on, our band seems to be getting better and better. Their instruments are im¬ proved as the years pass and as the different types of music pass through, those change too.

It was open to all teenagers of Hesseville and surrounding areas and to adults. They also had an Operation Snowflake for the grade schools of t he area. It was held from April 24th to the 25th. They also spon¬ sored a Snowball dance on the tenth of June. It was a get together for all the Morton students and all the participants of Operation Snowball from other schools. The dance was a big part of the fundraising for next year’s Operation Snowball. The Chess Club meets twice a week in Mr. Bol- inger’s room. During the meetings they pair up and play chess. They trade off their pairs so that every¬ one has a chance to play everyone. Anyone is ele- gible to join. If you want to practice or improve your skills this club is a good idea. They had their own tournament within our own school which was mostly members. They started too late this past year to be in any major tournaments, but next year they hope to par¬ ticipate in a statewide tournament, and many others also.

Stephan 70 Operation Snowball, Chess Pursuing Their Abilities Thespians Drama 71 The Drama Club consists of people who like to act, or who want to pursue a career in acting. Some of them have very good acting abilities. Others are learning to be that good. Their first play of the year, “The Curious Sav¬ age”, was a comedy about an elderly lady whose children wanted to put her in an old folks home, but she didn’t belong there. It turned out okay. There wasn’t that many participants though this year. There was enough people for the parts, but there weren’t that many people who tried out for the parts. They do want more people to try out, and participate. If you are skillful in acting or just want to learn, join the Drama Club. Another part of the Drama section is the Thespians. The Thespians is an honorary group for the drama stu¬ dents. To get into the Thespians, you must be exception¬ ally good in acting and have an “A” or “B” grade point average. You also must have been in Drama class for a certain amount of time. This year there are only three people in the Thespians. The Drama Thespians Department is in need of more students willing to try out their ability in acting. The sponsor for it is Mr. Edwards. Junior, Angie Moore, went to the play, “Curious Sav¬ age” on February 20,1987. Her comment on the play was, “The play was very interesting and entertaining. I could tell that all of the performers practiced very hard and did a very fine job. I laughed through the whole play.” VARSITY. ROW ONE, Pan, Rakoczy. ROW TWO, Dione Brewbaker. Kris,an Killion.

Anxiety The cheerleading squads represent our school by do¬ ing various things. They try to boost our spirit by cheer¬ ing at our football and basketball games. The Varsity and Junior Varsity were picked at the end of last year and they practiced all summer and participated in various camps. They also had a few fundraisers before school started and during the school year. Freshman cheerlead¬ ers were picked this year. They were picked later than they usually are. The cheerleaders were picked from about twenty girls. They have kept up with the varsity and junior varsity squads by joining in on the fundraisers and by raising the school spirit. The varsity squad usually has a large crowd to cheer for, even at away games, so they have a large crowd yelling with them but the junior var¬ sity and the freshman don’t have many people at their games so they have to cheer extra loud to keep up the teams spirit and to try to get the spectators who are there to cheer too. This year the varsity squad had male cheerleaders from the beginning of the basketball season and the crowd really seemed to enjoy it. They really knew how to boost the schools spirit by their crazy stunts and cheers. All of the male cheerleaders were from the senior class. SMILEII Seniors Pam Rakoczy. Kelly Galovic.

The pon-poms select¬ ed their squad last year and practiced very hard over the summer at the school. This year they have a new sponsor. Ms. Engle took over the place of the former sponsors, Mrs. Tuck and Mr. Matusiak. Even though the cheer¬ leaders and the poms have the same sponsor both groups still have their own individualism. They performed in many parades this past year. They also had fund raising booths at some fairs over the summer.

The Student Association is a very active group. The Association put together the Culture Fest which was held on the first weekend in September. The fest was held in Morton’s parking lot and the Howard Branch Library’s parking lot. The fest consisted of many arts and crafts booths and also many games set up as fund raisers for cer¬ tain groups. There was also a big selection of foods from various nationalities. There was also entertainment from many different groups and many different nationalities. They also sponsored the annual Inaugural. The theme this year was “Fantasies”. The cafeteria was decorated like a castle and the mood was set. The ’86 Inaugural was a smash and everyone had a fun time. The Booster Club is also a very active club. They de¬ vote their time to boosting the school’s spirit. They make spirit posters and hang them up all over the halls to boost the spirit for the coming events. The Booster Club also sponsored their annual “Carnation Sale”, on Valentines Day. You can send a carnation to a friend or loved one for a dollar. Each color has a meaning: red is for love, pink is for passion, white is for desire, and blue is for friendship. They were distributed to students in their third hour clas¬ ses. They also sponsored a few dances and things. Both the Student Association and the Booster Club are very active clubs with members who care about the school and want to help boost its spirit. 74 Booster Club cho. Jenine Patacky. Angie Galxan.

If one is a junior or senior, has a ’B’ average, has taken journalism, and has served on either the yearbook (Top Hat), or newspaper (Mor- tonite) staff, he or she is eligable to be induc¬ ted. The inductees are honored at a special banquet organized by the sponsor Mrs. Gil- lard and by the returning members from the last year. The banquet consists of dinner, they induct new members and they hand out special awards to certain members of the or¬ ganization. All the members of the “Top Hat” and “Mortonite” staff are invited to the banquet but, only those who meet the special requirements are inducted. However, some times they can induct a sophomore but when they do that, the sophomore does not partici¬ pate until he or she is a junior. QUILL AND SCROLL, ROW ONE, Kim Garcia. Pam Rakoczy.

The National Honor Society is a very small group this year. There are only six members and it reflects on the basic decline in student in volvement and leadership. Mr. Zelenke, sponsor, likes to think of it as ’The Few, The Proud, The Morton Honor Society.’ The six that were selected this year were selected from about fourteen possible candidates. One of the major problems that kept most people off was their involvement in other activities. Most people had the grades to make it but their involvement in extra-curricular activities were poor. There aren’t enough that make good grades and are in three or four extra-cur¬ ricular activities. Some people feel that if they are in more activities than it takes more time away from their homework time. They feel that they would not be able to pull such good grades if they had to spend their time on something other than doing their homework. But, then on the other hand there are six people in this school who proved that it can be done. NA TIONAL HONOR SOCIETY, RO W ONE, Bill Keutzer. Sue Ann Laramie. Lisa Hunt. Dennis Zelenke (SPONSOR).

They attended the Omni Max theater and they ate at a special restaurant, set up especially to offer the foods of different countries. According to the Vice President, Kelly Troksa, the buffet was quite classy and the food was pretty good. The sponsor, Mr. Bolinger wants to set up a possible summer travel exchange for those who want it. The Home Economics Club’s purpose is to learn more than the basic subjects that you learn in school. They do and make thing s for the community when they are needed. They sometimes donate their own dishes to places that need them. They also have had bake sales as a fund raiser. They had a pretty big turnout this year which is good. Many people are interested in learning how to improve their cooking and baking skills. They also have had speakers come to inform the members of things they should know. They show them how to prepare different dishes and they also have the members help them sometimes. A few members commented that they really enjoyed the club and that they had fun and learned a lot of things. FOREIGN LANGUAGE - Row I: Jacob Hoogeveen. Valerie Saltzman. Kelly Troksa.

Helping Their Future Speech and Debate involves work outside of the classroom either in groups or individually. Each year the Speech and Debate teams schedule events which repuire travel. Depending upon the team’s strengths, they may travel as of¬ ten as twenty times or more each year. Speech and Debate is offered to all stu¬ dents. It is perferable to have had En¬ glish 3 but it isn’t required. To get on the team one has to have a recommendation by another instructor and Mr. Safs- trom’s approval. The decision is based either on the work of the previous semes¬ ter or upon the entire high school record. An agreement to earn National Forensic League member the student must earn twenty-five competitive speaking points and be in the upper two thirds of his class. Some persons may consider com¬ peting in tournaments to earn N.F.L. membership as extra work. Actually, the tournament affords opportunities for improvement and success. ICE DECA stands for Interdisciplinary Cooperative Education and Distributive Education Clubs of America. It is a program which was brought to Morton a few years ago by Mr. Speelmon. In this program stu¬ dents are taught responsibilities. While students work and go to school, they re¬ ceive grades from their various jobs. The student’s boss determines their grades. ICE DECA may benefit students in go¬ ing to college and keeping their part time jobs. Row One-Kelly Troksa. Barbie Farmer. Tina Silva, Sue Praski, Elsa Spisak. Lisa Hum.

John Reed talked about his time in prison for killing a one-year old girl while driving under the influence. It really hit some of the students at MHS and hopefully, it will keep them from driving under the influence. The Ski Club this year was more active than in previous years. They did go skiing more than once. They also had a couple fund raisers, one was a dance, and one was a sale in which they sold little pom pon animals. The members of this club seem really enthused about going skiing more often. “At first I didn’t think we’d be going because of the weather situation, but I’m glad it did snow because we had a great time!” stated President Toni Sancya. Let’s hope more people will get involved again next year. 78 Sadd, Ski The Science of The Science Club, sponsored by Mrs. Turk, involved stu¬ dents who take science classes and want to find out more about the careers in that field. They met twice a month, every other Tuesday. The offi¬ cers were, Gina Atkinson, President, Brandon Cruz, Vice- President, David Lopez, Treasurer, and Sue Ann Laramie, Secretary. During the year they mainly focused on sponsoring the twelve member MHS Science Olympiad Team to the 1987 Indiana State Science Olympiad on March 21, 1987. The team placed fifth in overall competition. At the end of the year they also toured Purdue Univer¬ sity’s science program. The Photo Club is sponsored by Herr Meister and met every other Tuesday. Often the members go to the clubs dark room any day after school or during their spare time during the day. Herr Meister enjoyed the Photo Club and was always willing to take new members at any time. They not only learned how to take pictures, but also how to work the camera properly, develop the film, and how to print the pictures. When the Morton students took their trip to Germany, the Photo Club shot their passport pictures. “I enjoyed learning something new”, comments Junior Debbie Brown. “Using the camera is something I’ll be able to use later on in life”, she added.

The Mat Maids keep the score for the wrestlers at away matches. At the home matches they collect the money at the door, keep score and announce the matches. The girls really tried to help out the wrestlers and Mr. Kepler as much as possible. There are a lot of people who sign up for Mat Maids but there are only a few girls who really stick it out and go to as many meets as possible. The Timmerettes help the swim¬ mers at home meets by keeping the time for the races and being the announcers. The girls each have their own stop watches, and they are each appointed a lane. They keep time for each swimmer at that lane. The swimmers also ha ve a tradition TIMMERETTES-Row I, Judy Crouch. Lori Harney. Shannon Settle.

SO Timmerettes, Mat Maids Weighing Their Ability The weightlifting club consists of those people who lift weights after school. They try their abilities to see how much weight they can lift. They try to improve themselves and be the best they can. They try to build up their muscles and body and give themselves more strength then they had before. Each one of them gives the other support in what they do and in what they try to do. There were many more participants in the weightlifting program this past year than in the previous years. The days they are allowed to go downstairs and workout were Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fri¬ days. Each guy tries to reach his goal of becoming an “IRON MAN”. When you reach that point you receive a T-shirt and are considered an “IRON MAN”. They hope many more people will get in¬ volved in this as the years go on. It is not just something to join, it is something that is good for you and can help you to improve yourself. Row I: Chris Syndrowski. Rich Salinas. Todd McKe- chnie. Doug Burian Row 2: Matt Smith.

This practice test was designed to improve the test-making skills of our college-bound students. Morton’s English Department also offers many fine clubs, activi¬ ties, and classes that have been designed to improve students com¬ munication skills. The English Department encourages students to be a part of the Speech and Debate program or to get involved with the production of the Top Hat yearbook or the Mortonite newspa¬ per. Some students may even wish to display their unique creativity in plays, poetry, and story writing. English is a requirement and is taken to improve one’s grammar, spelling, reading, and also to receive a background in literature. Most students start off by re¬ freshing their English skills and later wishing to take speech and literature classes. Some students wishing to further their career in English may take such classes as Advanced Composition, Develop¬ mental Reading, and World Literature. The English Department offers many ways for a student to express his or her talents in the field of English. READING-Senior Dave Hlitta reads a book which is just one of the many requirements in order to pass any class. TIME TO STUDY-Senior Tony Mendoza takes time to WORKING-Freshman Rachel Rakos works hard study attentively. to improve her grades. 84 English Studying Government and the Past In the Social Studies classes the students focus on studying the past, present, and the different forms of Government. Geography class is where students learn how to read maps and learn of land formations. World Civilization is where students learn of the worlds past history. However, in U.S. History, the students focus on the past events of the United States. The seniors of our school learn about the many types of gov¬ ernments and how they work in Government class. There are other Social Studies classes that students may take. These are Social Studies electives. These classes are Eco¬ nomics, Current Problems, Sociology, and Psychology. These particular classes are good for students who plan to major in these specific areas. For example, a student who plans to become a teacher may find a Psychology class or even a Sociolo¬ gy class very interesting. The Social Studies electives are offered to only the upper¬ classmen. However, every student must take World Civilization, TAKme THE DA Y OFF .

However. Andy is having a little trouble with a certain part of the sentence. For those students who are college bound, a language is rec¬ ommended. However, any student who is looking for a challenge should take a shot at learning a language. Here at Morton we offer three different languages. These languages are French, Spanish, and German. French, which is taught by Mr. Bolinger, is a hard language to learn. The first year students are drilled with nouns, verbs and lots of vocabulary. However, the advanced students begin to put the pieces together and try to speak the romantic language. They even get the chance to test their abilities with some French re¬ cipes. Spanish, which is taught by both Mrs. Burr and Mrs. Sersic, is a language that takes determination. While the beginning clas¬ ses are working on the basics, the advanced classes work on speak¬ ing Spanish all hour. German, which is taught-by Herr Meister, likes to use the outside world as an educator. The German classes went to Ger¬ man Town and over Easter vacation some German students went to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The classes also went to see a German performance that was performed by the Stratton Mountain Boys. All three languages are equally difficult but rewarding. STUDY TIME - Senior Carrie Griffin listens to Mr. Bolinger while he gives a lecture during French class. Well, we do allow a little daydreaming every once in awhile. TIME OUT - Some German students take a rest on a cor¬ ner in German Town. Foreign Language 87 Science Abilities Show Science is a very interesting field to get into you can learn so many wonderful, exciting, and interesting things. The Science Department has gone on a few trips this year. They went to Lincoln Park Zoo, and to Wolf Park in Battleground, Indiana where they studied wolves, and met each wolf individually. There are other science classes available here at Morton for requirement needs and just for learning. To name a few: Biology 1-2, Biology 3-4, Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, and Physiology. Senior Mindy Powers quoted, “If you are planning to go into a Science or medical related field, Physiology is a very good course to take in high school, and I would recommend it highly.” Science is a complicated subject but if you are willing and have the time, take a few of these classes and have fun while learning.

Students Want to Advance Careers Many students wishing to advance their career training choose to attend half a day at the Hammond Area Career Center. The Area Career Center is located in the old Tech building. Classes are of¬ fered to all Hammond Area juniors and seniors. Transportation to and from the Career Center is provided by Hammond Area School buses. Students may choose to spend one, two, or even three hours a day there, depending upon their type of career training they pur¬ sue. A “C” average is required to attend the Career Center and spaces are limited. Students, therefore, must fill out an application and be accepted to go by the head counselor. Students may receive two or three credits for the time they spend at the center, again de¬ pending upon their choice of career training. A class offered is Data Processing where the student will be trained on different equip¬ ment, do work for companies to further his career training, and will also learn the fundamentals of the computer. In Fast Foods class a student will learn many chores such as washing dishes and repair¬ ing toasters. Rebuilding small engines is taught in an industrial arts class. The Hammond Area Career Center can be a very helpful place to attend. In each class one learns many valuable and helpful career metals - Working with the welding equipment is just one of the many skills. things at the Career Center. 94 Career Center PREVENTING INJURIES - To prevent injuries when working with the machines students dress carefully and avoid wear¬ ing hazardous clothing. Physical Education Will Change All HIT THA T BALU-Freshman Melanie Krapac improves her volleyball skills by hitting the ball. Physical Education is a required class to be taken by all of the incoming freshman. Some may wish to take the course right as a freshman or others may wish to take it their Sophomore, Ju¬ nior, or Senior year. Physical Education is a two semester class and is worth one half of a credit per semester totalling one full credit per year. Physical Education includes sports such as: bas¬ ketball, baseball, volleyball, football, soccer, tennis, and badmin¬ ton. A physical education student is also required to pass swim¬ ming which is included in the regular physical education course, if a student does not pass swimming then he she is required to take the whole physical education course over the next year. After completing the course of physical education, a student can con¬ tinue in the P.E.,field by going into AdvancedP.E., or Aerobics. The Aerobics class was very successful last year so the course was continued this year. The class is taught by Ms. Sherry Williams. OFF THE FLOOR-Freshman Monica Scott jumps off the floor to get the ball. Physical Education 95 Business Students This years Business Department offered many courses for stu¬ dents wishing to pursue in a Business career or for those who just wish to take the classes for the fun of their high school years.

A s the long journey comes to an end and our hero faces the dark, sinister castle, Broderick knows he has come a long way, yet he has still further to travel in order to accomplish his goal-to become a gallant knight by rescuing the princess whom he loves from the forces of evil. Like Broderick we all must set goals for ourselves and reach out and achieve them. Each school day is a battle and each passing grade is an obstacle we have overcome. The di¬ ploma we receive is our victory. Now let ' s take a look at the heart of the school. People Senior Year-What does it mean? S E N I O R S All of your life you look forward to being a Senior in high school; well, our time has come. We’re SEN¬ IORS!!! During the course of our Senior year, many happenings occur and we develop many memories. Along with these happenings and memories there is also a cer¬ tain feeling that comes with being a Senior - a feeling of seniority. This year the seniors proved that they can handle their feeling of seniority without abusing it, by sticking together and building a float for homecoming, putting to¬ gether a bulletin board, and just by being a class. We had a hard act to follow with last year’s class being so close, but we have done a pretty good job. Our class also had a rough beginning our freshman year. We had to get ev¬ erything together our sophomore year and hope for the best. Well, we’ve done it! But being a senior is more than just being the oldest in the school. It means a lot more to a person like Kelly Daniels a senior here at Morton. She stated, “The best way to explain it (being a senior) is, it is my last year. Make it all work, grades, friendships, and goals. These are what I plan to make work.” Many seniors felt the same way as Kelly did. We had to get everything together. Because of it being our last year of high school, we had to think of the future, whether we planned to continue our education or get a job or join the armed forces. There were a lot of decisions to make. Senior Lisa Hunt told us her feelings about her last year of high school, “It scares me to think about high school being over and going out into the real world, having to leave good friends and teachers. The best part of high school is the people, and saying goodbye to them isn’t something I look forward to. But I’ll always have the memories, which will always be a part of me.” There is one more thing that comes with the title Se¬ nior, it is Senioritis. I asked senior Gina Atkinson what were her feelings of Senioritis and she told me, “Senioritis is a condition characterized by boredom, frustration, and apathy caused by the anticipation of the coming of gradu¬ ation and rush to get accepted into the outside world. Senioritis can only be cured by one thing — COM¬ MENCEMENT —!!!” At commencement everyone was so excited to be graduating but also everyone was sad because we will probably never see most of these people again. After you leave the auditorium all of your feelings of being a senior die. You are no longer a senior, you are a graduate!!! I would like to congratulate the class of ’87 and wish them the best of luck in the future!!!!!!!!! - Pam Rakoczy, Senior Editor DANCING THE NIGHT AWAYI Seniors Rick Ayala.

They showed not only class spirit, but also school spirit. They were really motivated. They wanted their last homecoming to be their best and I think that that was all accomplished. Some of the many festivities of homecoming were: The annual parade in which each class entered a float, (pictured above are seniors Bill Keutzer, and Julie Junkins showing off their float). Seniors tied with the juniors for first place. Then there were the numerous spirit days for which a great number of the seniors dressed up. One of the favorites was Hawaiian day. The decorating of the bulletin board was an¬ other one of the competitions and being the only class to decorate one, it wasn’t hard to win. The final competition (which was only between sen¬ iors) was the crowning of the 1986-87 Homecoming Queen- Marcela Guerrero. It was a gr at homecoming that will always be remem¬ bered. o F ' 87 Lana Moskalick Frank Mrvan Mason Murphy Ron Needham Amy Novak Seniors 107 108 Seniors CLASS OF 87 Jim Smith Theresa Smallwood Matt Smith Elsa Spisak Ron Stahl Dennis Starkey Troy Stavros SENIORS SENIORS Ed Stephens Joe Streveler Sue Sutton Janet Szydlowski Jim Taillon Brandon Tredway Debbie Turean David Turpin Dave Urbin Michelle Vale NO Seniors CLASS OF 87 Craig Williams Joy Williams Marquita Williams Steve Young Robert Wilson Seniors III GOOD LUCK CLASS OF ’87!

Some Juniors that went said that it was really nice inside and worth their money. Prom is sponsored every year by the Junior class. In order to help boost the class of ’88’s funds, the class sold plain and peanut M M’s. One of the highlights in 1986-87 was home¬ coming, in which the Juniors tied for first with the Seniors in the float competition. Another highlight was the Powder Puff game which was held on October 24,1986. The score was Seniors 24, Juniors 14. The Juniors Sponsors are Mr. Safstrom, and Mr. Kaczymarczyk. The council consists of Ann Stombaugh, Dottie Domsic, Diana Turner, Traci Kerr, Karen Sargent, Christine Capistran, Rox- ann Cieslak, and Sue Semon.

The freshman class came into Morton unaware of how classes went, how long classes were, how to act in front of older kids, and how to join clubs, and organizations. The class has had several fund raisers, some included two candy gram sales, one in October, and one in December for Christmas. A bake sale in October. A poster sale. And a taffy apple sale during a Freshman football game. The Freshman sponsor is Ms. Osmulski. The council consists of President: Julie Flagg, Co- President: Mark Baker and Sandy Jansky, Secre¬ tary: Chris Kaminsky, and Treasurer: Erika Luttman Ms. Osmulski also quoted that she loved working with the class, they were all out going and looked forward to planning their Junior-Se¬ nior Prom in the near future.

Mr. Volbrecht has been in the Ham- STICKING AROUND - In the fall Mr. Donn Edwards will be starting his 26th year of teaching at Morton. 140 Faculty mond schools for quite sometime. He’s back in the build¬ ing again this year after being at Scott for four years. Administrators have moved around as much as some of the teaching staff. Although Mr. Stavros has been here for four years, he has been in education for 25 years. Mr. Mataja has been the most constant administrator in this building and he’s had 29 years in education. 18 were spent in Hammond, and 11 years were spent in Whiting schools. The most recent addition to the administration Ms. Kline, who was added this year. However, she’s no new¬ comer to education either. She taught in LaPorte school for nine years, before taking Mr. Tanke’s place. A new counselor was added, Dr. James Novosel (re¬ placing Ms. Lundahl who retired), but he’s not new to the system either. Mrs. Jennings-Sarten was added to the business department, but she came over from Clark. Mrs. Draskovich was added to the math department, but she came from Hammond High. Ms. Lueken was added to the physical education department, and she came over from Scott. In the special education department seven teachers and two aids were added: Ms. Osmulski, Ms. Foster, Mr. Sever, Mrs. Mikler, Mrs. Byers-Hurdish, Mrs. Martinez, Mrs. Bogey, Ms. Matus, and Ms. Hatch.

Teachers and Not many people wonder what teachers do during lunch. Most people figure they just go out someplace or sit and talk in the teachers’ lounge. When lunchtime comes for them, they usually do the same thing each day. Nobody even thought of the fact that teachers have their own cliques. Why not? They are people too, and like others, teachers like certain kinds of company. Some teachers like Mrs. Carter, Mrs. Rotenberg, and Dr. Stockdale like to stay in their rooms, maybe grade pa¬ pers, plan for the day, or to even be alone. Other teachers go out to lunch. Still, teachers enjoy eating in the teachers’ lounge, and of course, at their special tables. Who would have it to be odd if Mrs. Craig went to sit by Mr. DePeugh? Mr. De Peugh along with Mr. Huber, Mr. Archer, Mr. Woodward, Mr. Nelson, Mr. Hodson, Mr. Mar- cinek, and Mr. Hruskovich, sit at the well-known “Macho Table.” Mrs. Craig prefers to sit with Mrs. Burr, Mrs. Mituka, Mrs. Mann, and Mrs. Sersic. Another large group is the English and Science depart¬ ment which included Mrs. Turk, Mrs. Gillard, Mr. Bacus, Mr. Zelenke, Mr. Bolinger, Ms. Luttringer, M r. Edwards, Their Cliques Mr. Weiss, and sometimes others like Mr. Sarang and Mrs. Sullivan. The secretaries and the Special Education teachers sit with their own groups. Of course, this isn’t every teacher. Still, there are others who have hall or cafeteria supervision. Mr. Penzato, Mr. Kolar, Mr. Mayerik, Mr. Stavros, Ms. Engle, Mrs. Kline, and a few more have a fifth hour lunch. Other teach¬ ers go off on their own or are with students who need to make up a test or serve a detention. Teachers’ cliques don’t just stay at school. Mr. and Mrs. Weiss and Mr. and Mrs. Bacus spend time together often. They, as well as Mr. and Mrs. Gillard and Mr. and Mrs. Bobowsky, go to movies and plays, visit each other, shop together, and dine out together. And, again- Why not? They are people too. In the special education department seven teachers and two aids were added: Ms. Osmulski, Ms. Foster, Mr. Sever, Mrs. Mikler, Mrs. Byers Hurdish, Mrs. Martinez, Mrs. Bogey, Ms. Matus, and Ms. Hatch. Genita Cofield was added as a speech therapist, and Lucy Perz replaced Mildred Reese as school Nurse.

Before him, John Molnar was an administrator, and be¬ fore him, Joseph Gartner. Steve Stravros has been principal for four years. He replaced Tim Brown who was here for two years after Win¬ ston Becker. Ms. Kline completed her first year at Morton as vice principal. Kline has been teaching for nine Principal Steve Stavros years, and this is her first vice principal position. She taught for two years at Cen¬ terville Indiana.

This year there was cause to cele¬ brate ourselves. This year was the 100 year anniver¬ sary of the Statue of Liberty. Much me¬ dia programming featured stories of the immigrants who came to this country from Europe. The Calumet region has long been known as a “melting pot” and the Hes- sville community continues to change as more people of different ethnic back¬ grounds move into it. Locally, every first weekend of Sep¬ tember is an ethnic celebration. The La- Care International Culture Fest took place again on Morton’s parking lot and the surrounding area. Another cause for celebration this year was Corazon Aquino’s defeat of Fer¬ dinand Marcos in the Phillipines. Her rise to the presidency seems not only a reason to celebrate for freedom of the people of her country but also seems to be a celebration for women. It is not ev¬ eryday that a housewife becomes a presi¬ dent. A couple of marriages also captured everyone’s attention. The Kennedy’s and the Windsor’s still intrigue most people. Caroline Kennedy and “Randy Andy” got married, but not to each oth¬ er, however. Speaking of setting up housekeep¬ ing, mortgage rates dropped this year and made it easier to buy a home. CELEBRA TION - The city of New York gave the Statue of Liberty SWEET VICTORY - New York Mets Cary Carter it lifted in the air a big 1986 bash - a Fourth of July festival of song, celebrities and by relief pitcher Jesse Orosco following the Met 6-5 victory over , _ _ Fireworks honoring her first 100 years. the Boston Red Sox in the seventh game of the World Series. 182 News For Celebrations Within the school, there is also cause for celebration. The Leadership Conference was held for the second year, and this time it was totally run by stu¬ dents, with faculty members in advisory capacity. Though not as well attended as last year’s, it was received favorably by those who attended it. The School Improvement Commit¬ tee has had some problems with mem¬ bership this year, but they are still meet¬ ing and are still dedicated to improving the school. They began work on the area of peer counseling, with the goal of trying to get students involved in areas best sui¬ ted to their interests. They were also in¬ volved with the Leadership Conference. The P.T.S.A. offered programs on topics such as college financial aid, sub¬ stance abuse, at their monthly meetings. They also sponsored a Christmas dance, and tried to increase their exposure to students. Some News Is Always Bad News It doesn’t matter what century we live in; certain problems continue to plague the human race. There is the problem of drought and famine. There is the problem of death and disease. There is the problem of crime. Poverty and unemployment still exist. Abuse of others, and abuse of one’s self are time¬ less. Locally, the big newsmakers this year were crime and unemployment. Ac¬ cording to the The Times, the USX Corp. work stoppage idled more than 6,000 workers in the Region and 16,000 others nationwide. It also broke the pre¬ vious steel strike record for longevity. LTV filed for bankruptcy, and Inland Steel cut back seriously again on work¬ ers. The stories surrounding £ aula Coo¬ per and co-defendents were frequently on the front page. At fifteen she mur¬ dered Ruth Pelke, an old Bible school teacher. Robbery was the motive. Later she bragged about the killing. She was also involved in a sex scandal while im¬ prisoned which led to the dismissal of prison guards. She was sentenced to the death penalty. “The death penalty was adminis¬ tered to William Vandiver in October. He was found guilty of murdering and dismembering a local Hessville resi¬ dents. Vandiver was lethally injected, and had been requesting to die for what he had done. His accomplices are still in prison. Nationally, the top story of 1986 was the Challenger explosion, w hich hap¬ pened last January. 184 News CELEBRITY DEATHS - Among the celebrities who died in 1986 were singer one of Hollywood’s famous tough guys, died March 30 at age 86: and Ted Kate Smith who died June 17 of respiratory arrest at age 79: Benny Goodman.

Without the pa¬ trons and advertisements we sold this year, we would not be able to finance this book. During the year we had many complications from the beginning to the end. In the fall we didn’t have many people on staff, and the 1985-86 staff had many graduates which left this year’s staff, young and unexperienced. We did get the hang of things, for a while, but three editors dropped the class second semester and that put an extra burden on all the other staff members. With help from the second semester journalism students and the vol¬ unteers that graciously volunteered their time and effort, the staff worked hard as a team and got the book complet¬ ed. Most of all we would like to thank our advisor, Mrs. Jan Gillard. No matter how much work she had she was always there for us. She was there when we needed that ex¬ tra push, or that little bit of patience. She put a lot of her own time into the yearbook helping us out and we appreci¬ ated it very much. Most important we become close. We put all our efforts together and became a team. We learned how much we depend on each other, and how we always need others as The Saga Continues ... Thank You, The Top Hat Staff m WALS WORTH PUBLISHING COMPANY
