We wanted to have fun with this year’s yearbook. Why not? We had a tough year last year. We have a rea¬ son to party. Top Hat is 35 years old. (Who wants to wait for a 50 year cele¬ bration? We could have our own chil¬ dren attending MHS by then. Scary thought, us with teenagers of our own). ANYWAY. This is our time for fun. Think about it. School doesn’t have to be a bummer. We bring to it our youth. We breath life into it. We shape it with our hopes, dreams and experiences. So, why not have fun with it? We are teenagers. Our party has just begun. Let’s Party!.

Havin S Fun Photos Opening Theme 5 In the Student Life section we will try to explain stu¬ dent life at Morton High. If somethings seem unclear, remember we’re at MHS. While in school, students try to make the most of it by attending school functions such as games, meets, concerts and dances. Although high school years are more than homework and tests, believe it or not, students can have fun in the classroom. Field trips and outings help keep the monotony limited. High school is a time of growing, learning and experi¬ encing life. Gossiping, giggling and just plain having fun are all a part of student life. Teachers, administrators and counselors affect our lives in one way or another. That is why students and teachers have to work togeth¬ er to maintain the “Party Spirit’’ throughout school. Let’s see what the entertainment consisted of this year. 6 Student Life Division —PROM ' 87— Annual Prom Held On April 24,1987, the class of 1988 presented the annual Prom at the Wicker Park Social Center. The theme, “Just You and I,” was chosen because this song was requested so frequently at the previous Prom. Theme colors chosen were black and silver, and girls attending were presented with a red carnation and a chance to win the vase at their table. Attending Prom are juniors and seniors with a minimum of 21.5 credits and sophomores with a minimum of 13.5 credits who are escorted by upperclassmen. Students who attended Prom were presented with a keychain and a keepsake booklet containing prom information and a place to record personal prom information. by Tabitha Dixon 8 Prom RaRXING - Senior John Franovich, and Junior Tracey Mat¬ thews donee to o slow and relaxing song.

It was Morton’s homecom¬ ing game, which started at 7:30 P.M. During halftime, Sue Semon who was escorted by Ron Bukowski, was crowned queen by Mar- cela Guerrero, Morton’s queen for 1986. “Being the 1987 home¬ coming queen has been one of the best experiences of my life, so far. It has fulfilled my high school years here at Morton,’’ said Sue. Morton’s victory over Clark made the evening a little more special. The court, which included Christine Capistran, Danielle Denehie, Dottie Domsic, Sue Semon, Ann Stombaugh, and Karen Sargent, was nominated by the senior class along with suggestions from ad¬ ministrators. by Angela Moore Homecoming Court 13 INSTRUCTIONS Quarterback Mike Hall listens carefully to the Instructions given to him by Coach Kepler.

Spark Spirit Back in the days of yesteryear bonfires were held as spirit raising functions. In addition to this year’s traditional spirit raising functions for Homecoming, the Junior class sponsored a bonfire, which will hopefully become a new Homecoming tradition here at MHS. Homecoming spirit was widespread this year as the students and faculty backed the Govs to a Homecoming victory over the Clark Pioneers. In the traditional news, the Seniors won the spirit stick com¬ petition over the Juniors by a very slim margin. Their float, “Raised on Radio’’, reflected the theme of the same name. by Tabitha Dixon Homecoming 15 16 Homecoming — -pft n€- Govs Show Pride This year’s homecoming was filled with the Governor spirit of pride and accomplishment. During the annual Homecoming queen assembly, Mayor Thomas McDermott congratulated Morton’s only National Merit Scholarship Winner, Brian Stage, Senior. Also during the queen assembly the vocal ambassador’s brought pride to our student body, faculty, and guests by performing “The Words Get in The Way”. Pride rang throughout the day and night of homecoming as the students donned a red and grey wardrobe for the pep rally, game and dance.

In order to receive tickets to the turnabout students were re¬ quired to help out with the decorations or bake cookies, etc. Tick¬ ets were $11.00. Since this annual semi-formal is held here at MHS students must go out for dinner. As in the past, many students ventured out into the city of Chicago for dinner and sightseeing, still others stayed close to home and went to Courtney’s or the Raleigh. by Tabitha Dixon Inaugural 19 The Effects of Gamma Rays on Man-on-the-Moon Mari¬ golds, centers around Beatrice and her relationship between her two daughters, Tillie and Ruth. Tillie takes on a science experi¬ ment involving marigolds and wins a science fair at her school. The climax takes place as Beatrice rejects her daughters success. The theme of the play, Built around Tillie’s experiment, illustrates a valuable lesson that promising things often begin in “barren and afflicted soil.” Beatrice is portrayed by senior Adriana Galvan. Toni Rogers plays a pretty, high strung charac¬ ter named Ruth. Janice Vicory, a contestant in Tillie’s science fair, is played by senior Angela Moore. Senior Lisa Richardson portrays Tillie, the science fair winner.

Play 21 MHS Students Receive Awards Over this past school year many Morton stu¬ dents, teachers, and other faculty members have won awards or received high honors. Among them was Brian Stage who received many high honors. Along with being named DAR re¬ cipient and being a National Merit Scholarship Win¬ ner, Brian was also a boys state delegate and held several other offices. In the special education program, athlete Ivan Hoard went to the Special Olympics where he re¬ ceived a gold medal in track. This year’s Science Olympiad team received a ranking of third in the state in competition. Ray Reigner, a school janitor, was presented with an award from the state reading council for his work and help through the years. The vocal music program was pleased to see several of their music students win awards in state competition. The publication department presented Erika Madison with the Hammond Times Award, Mary Santana with the Cal Press Award for Photography, Lisa Dosado with the most valuable Mortonite staff¬ er, and Robert Perez with the most valuable Top Hat staffer.

There were many camps attended this past year, not only by students, but by teachers and parents too. All of these camps were attended to learn more about the subjects or sports that they were in. However, where there is work, there is usually play! All of these camps gave the individuals free time to do as they pleased. (Within reason.) The teachers and parents who went to “camp” used their free time by playing “Wallyball”. This is a game of vollyball played in a racquetball room so they can hit the balls off the walls. The students passed their free time in many different ways. At the football camp, you could always find them eating at any time, or most students were meeting new people.

News 27 When being an athlete, one must be very disciplined. He has to concentrate on how well he performs, not only on the field, court or track but also in the classroom. A feeling of men¬ tal e xhilaration comes with completing a physical task. Team sports may offer the joy or sweetness of victory over a formi¬ dable opponent. An athlete can then discover what fabric he is really made of. They test their strength against others who are bigger and stronger than they are. Athletes have to learn to accept a loss graciously, which is sometimes very difficult to accomplish. They also must learn how to accept victories, which is a bit easier to accomplish. Bringing home trophies is a feeling of jubilation. Let’s look at our victories in sports this year. By Chantell Vaughan 30 Sports Division Gary Wirt Gary Roosevelt Hammond High Chicago Prosser E.C.

Ms. Lueken was disappointed in the team because she claimed that the team had so much talent and she felt it was bad to let them throw away that talent. Another factor that took part in the number of losses in both the J.V. and Varsity teams was young and inexperienced players. On account of this, some games that were lost should have been won. Team honors of The Most Valu¬ able Player went to Sue Semon, who made the all-conference team, along with her teammate Patti Revere who was elected to the all-conference and Most Improved Player, also. The Junior Varsity Team ended their season with a record of 8 wins and 14 losses. Ms. Lueken has the same feelings toward the J.V. squad. Although their record was better than that of the Varsity, she still feels they could have done bet¬ ter. Ms. Lueken feels that in order for the team to have a winning sea¬ son next year, the team will have to be more dedicated, and will need better attitudes. She feels that they must have a desire to make a com¬ mitment. That includes starting their season in the summer so they can have more practice time.

They were motivated by their senior leadership that came from Andy Sojka and Brian Stage. Also the title of Most Improved Runner was awarded to Dominic Vernengo. Andy Sojka and Eric Cavanaugh were awarded Most Valuable Run¬ ners. The team is already looking for¬ ward to next year, because they feel they will be strong. Next year they will only be loosing two runners. The girls, on the other hand, took a third in conference. The Chompions bright spot of the season was a 3rd place finish in each of the Gavit and Clark invites. Individually, Sophomore Sandy Jansky was named to the all confer¬ ence team. Also looking forward to next year’s season, like the boys, the girls Cross Country Team will have all but two runners returning. The girls are hoping for a much better team next year. Coach Larry Stevens hopes that since this was his first year as coach of the girls team, that next year they will take confer¬ ence.

It was Coach Tom Taylor’s first year as coach, since coming over from Portage, where he was an assistant under Greg Curby. This years most valuable player was Brett Parker, who had the best field goal and free throw percentage along with most points and most rebounds. George Vasic recieved Best Atti¬ tude Award and the Most Im¬ proved Award went to Junior Dave Snedden. Morton lost two games this year that could have been wins, a defeat at Munster against a good Munster ball club and a tri¬ ple overtime heart breaking loss at the hands of the Whiting Oilers. Coach Tom Taylor felt that the team had a sub-par year, but progressed during the course of the season. The Governors lost in the first game of the sectionals to Andrean in the final game of the year. Next year, Morton will be without the help of Brett Parker, George Vasic, Tom Montague, and Greg Ziel. Coach Tom Taylor is looking forward to having Eric Gruener, Dave Snedden, Dual Crowley, Eric Kolisz, Paul Lipski, Ron Gasior, and the conference winning freshmen to compile the varsity and Junior Var¬ sity next year. Still, Coach Taylor, re¬ alizes a ballhandling guard and a post position player for next years team is needed.

The Varsity improved their record from last year with four more wins, and they ended thier season with a 6-11 record. The Junior Varsity also im¬ proved thier record. They finished with a winning record for the first time in three years with a final record of 11-7. The Varsity averaged 42.7 points a game which was an improvement over last year. Laura Phieffer led the Lady Govs with a 9.2 scoring average a game. The Lady Govs will graduate five seniors this year. Mrs. Lueken commented on that although the team will be young and inexperi¬ enced next year, the future will fook bright for the Lady Govs basketball program. Next year the Lady Govs will have to work hard to obtain a win¬ ning season. Several girls will be moving up to the Varsity level. They are sophomores Sandy Jansky, Jill Campbell, and Lynn Berta. The Junior Varsity squad was led by Daphne Humco and Tina Vas- ic. Sue Rutkowski and Amy Klepsch added to the consistency of the team.

These sports are to get the new Freshman inter¬ ested so when they become upper¬ classmen they have the experince to support the Junior Varsity and Var¬ sity teams. Freshman sports to train the upcoming Varsity teams are “Freshman Boys’ Football,’’ “Freshman Boys’ Basketball,’’ and “Freshman Girls ' Basketball.’’ This year our Frosh Boys Bas¬ ketball ended very well. They had a final record of ten wins and eight losses and they recieved the title of 1988 Conference. They were unde¬ feated in their regular conference games. Also they were the Griffith- High School Tournament Cham¬ pions. This years Boys’ Football team 44 Frosh Program did not do as well as the basketball team did but ended the season with a final record of one win and five loses. The Girls freshman basketball team had enough involvement that they were able to compile two teams. The A team ended their sea¬ son with a record of two wins and eight losses. The B team only played three games but unfortunately they were unable to pull out a victory. They ended their season with a final record of zero wins and three losses. These sports are not only to train them, but are to experience them so if they do well when they are freshman when they become upper¬ classmen they can regain their titles they earned at the freshman level for th e junior varsity and varsity levels. by Robert Perez Photo by Bodie BRINGING THE BALL UP COURT! - Freshman John Lopez tries to work his way up court to score a basket.

The returning so¬ phomores are Toby Milenz, Colin Salapski, and diver Regina Done. Alice Jackson, Jim Rile, Shane Car¬ ter, Michelle Sawyer and diver Tom Kelly are the returning freshmen. The five seniors that left were diver, Todd Morris, and swimmers, Pat Poland, Steve Pautler, Jeff Sawyer, and Dennis Nelson. Dennis Nelson, and diver Todd Morris were the only two team mem¬ bers to make all conference. Junior John Jackson was asked how he felt about this years team, his comment was “We did good considering the small number of people who stayed out for the team.” His comment about his indi¬ vidual performance was “In the be¬ ginning I started off good, but I didn’t drop my time as much as I wanted.” There were two four year letter winners, six three year letter win¬ ners, two two year letter winners and seven first year letter winners. Years ago, there was a girls and boys swim team but this year there were only four girls on the team.

Morton ended up with a confer¬ ence record of 11-1, two games up in the standings against Bishop Noll. Their season started of with a record of 2-4, but when conference started they setted things straight and pulled out a thirteen game win¬ ning streak. On the fourteenth game of their winning streak they could of wrapped up the conference title with a victory over Bishop Noll. But un¬ fortunately the “Big Red Machine” ended up with their worst defensive performance of the year. On the comment of team hon¬ ors it was answered as no one play¬ er had carried the team throughout the season. There were very good perfor¬ mances by many different pitchers. Junior Don Ward carried the team early in the season. Senior Jim Tail- Ion came with a no hitter. Junior pitchers Eric Cavenaugh and Scott Garvey won a tournament with back to back victories.

Take for instance softball which is a spin-off from baseball ex¬ cept its on the easier side. In the sport softball a larger ball is used in which some people think it is easier to catch. Also the bases are closer together and the field is smaller. Although you don’t see the world series in Softball, to girls it is still a sport that requires much skill just like in Baseball. This year’s 1987 girls Softball Team was very different from previ¬ ous teams because of the amount of underclassmen to join the team. Al¬ though this years team’s season was below 500, the girls did their very best to stick it out and come out with a conference record of 4 wins and 8 losses. The reason for the season be¬ ing below 500 was due to the lack of experience on the team. There were only three seniors on the team. There were Deanna Barnett, Tara Sako, and Chris Lipski. Team honors of most effective players were awarded to Deanna Barnett as the captain of the team, and Tara Sako was voted the most valuable player of the team by her teammates. by Robert Perez 52 Softball FIELDING THE BALL- Senior Tracy Matthews gives it that extra effort in fielding the ball as Tracy Deem looks on.

They ended up with a 5-5 record and a fourth in conference. Which was held at Clark High School. Morton received a fourth with 52 points be¬ hind Noil (1), ECC (2), and Hammond High (3). This year’s team was mainly made up of Sophomores. Some of the members of the team felt that if everybody gave 100 percent they might have done better and not con¬ sider it was an easy sport. The Girl’s Track Team ended their season with a record of 1-6. In dual meets and a 1-4 in conference and placed a fourth also in confer¬ ence tournaments. Mrs. Herring, the girls’ track team coach, commented that she was hoping for a better record, but some key injuries and ineligibilities hurt the teams scoring. Many of the girls qualified for sectionals: Laura Phieffer in the 100 and 300 meter hurdles, Dee Dee Lewis in the 100 meter dash, Kelly Edinger in the 400 meter dash, and Sandy Jansky and Wendy Nugent in the 1600 and 3200 meter run. Some of the most improved members were Wendy Nugent with her 2 mile time and also Sandy Jan¬ sky’s one-half mile improved, and Laura Phiefferr’s 100 and 300 meter low hurdles improved as the season went along. by Robert Perez PASSING THE BA TON- Junior Steve Lopez receives the baton from 54 Track Junior Chris Alaya to finish the race.

Go For The Hole In One With Morton Golf Q ome people think that golf is a sport that requires much skill, technique, and concentration. This is true to a point. Many golfers use this sport to relax. But many profes¬ sional golfers’ skills come from past experiences. To them it is almost a sixth sense. The team practiced at Wicker Park trying to stay away from the tough obstacles, such as sand traps and water holes to enjoy a good game of golf. The 1986-87 Morton Golf Team ended their season on May 2nd. The team did not have one of their better seasons, but according to Coach Kepler the golfers did have fun throughout their season. This year ' s team consisted of two seniors and three juniors. Their record was 3 wins and one loss, with two wins against Hammond High. According to Coach Kepler this year’s competition was just about the same as the years before, but they had been shooting less than av¬ erage. This year’s team honors went to Vince Satterfield and Bill Smitka. Vince Satterfield shot his personal best on May 19th at Wicker Park when he shot a 45. Bill Smitka also did his personal best on May 19th when he shot a 49. Both of these scores were on a 36 par course. These have been the best overall scores on the team. by Robert Perez 58 Golf TEACHING HIS SKILLS! - Coach Fred Kepler shows the proper stance, which is essential for a good swing, to Senior Chris Syndrowski. . -» AFTER THE SWING - Junior Vince off the ball will come to the hole.

It is a lot of hard work, keeping your grades high and giving up one’s spare time, to work on projects. But through it all, one can still find some good humor. Let’s face it, where else can you: color at our age? (map making in Geog¬ raphy) ... sing, dance, draw or toot a horn? (Concert Choir, Ensemble, Art and Band)... cut up a frog without one’s moth¬ er yelling at him? (Biology) ... create disgusting smells and receive a credit for it? (Chemistry)... and argue until your face turns red? (Debate). All of that happens at school, of course. This shows that if one pitches in a little effort, school can be fun and educational at the same time. by Chantell Vaughan 60 Academics Division English is Everywhere! The One Subject a Student Cannot Escape. English, English, everywhere, En¬ glish, English, everywhere, English! How does one escape a subject that seems as inevitable in this school as death and taxes are in outside life? The answer is, one does not escape learning English but learns it, period. As long as a student must learn this highly prized but diffucult skill, exactly what are the benefits? “The benefits of English are helping one to communicate whether speaking or writing! Without English one would not be able to do so many of the things one is doing now!” says Dr. Hazel Stockdale, an English teacher who knows the importance of the subject. The benefits may be rich and useful, but does this make learning proper En¬ glish any easier? Of course not, is the usual reply but anything of value which fulfills one’s life is worth working for. Yet this is not to say that English classes are not adventures, but they are so in their own way. Where else would one learn to write paragraphs not only correctly but interestingly, learn exactly what a ger¬ und is, or read some classic books and actually enjoy them in the process? It is the English class that serves this pur¬ pose and helps preserve our language, through its main medium which is us, the students, who will later pass it on to fu¬ ture generations. But, what of the students, who need a little more help than others in learning and the most important English skill... reading? What happens to them? They get the help they need from taking Re¬ medial Reading. The whole purpose of the course is stated by Mr. Dennis Zel- enke who teaches the class, " I want my students to be made positive about school and themselves! To be involved with print so that what they see in print is very important and that they can learn from it, enjoy it, laugh from it, and know that reading is still as important as any¬ thing else in life.’’ Taking into consider¬ ation what Mr. Zelenke said it does not just cover reading but encircles English as well. It is true, English is an important as anything else in life and we only have to realize this. — by Laura Dosado.

SMILE-Senior Joe Ecsi as the camera man white participating in a creative media project in his French class. WASTING TIME-Students in Mr. Bolinger’s 1st hour, seem to be spending their time foolishly but they real¬ ly are acting. “England and America are two countries separated by the same lan¬ guage’’. This was observed by George Bernard Shaw, and if this is true then the gap between our country and other for¬ eign speaking countries must be wider. Learning a Foreign Language is one of the ways a student can help fill in the lan¬ guage gap instead of falling in it. The three types of Foreign Languages a stu¬ dent may take at this school are Span¬ ish, French, and German. The classes are difficult for a person especially if one’s grammar is not the greatest but with some incentive a student can make it through if he really tries. Each class ex¬ poses a student to a different language, culture, and idea of foreign people. When a student shows exceptional tal¬ ent in learning a foreign language that student may have the opportunity to travel to the land of the language he learned. This happened to Lisa Richard¬ son, who was a second year German student who went to study in Germany for a year. In the opposite respect Mor¬ ton High School received a foreign ex¬ change student, Silke Schierenbeck, from Germany. When a student decides he wants to learn another language that student receives the chance to learn about how his customs and language differ from others. by Laura Dosado The Language Barrier Foreign Language Teaches Students New Ideas Photo by M.

Expressing Ourselves The Fine Arts Are The Makers Of New Talent Band, Concert Choir, Ensemble, and the different types of Fine Arts clas¬ ses all have one thing in common. They are fun and help to develop the different interests and talents a student may have. In Concert Choir, a student learns to sing correctly and the art of showmanship. Usually the choir has at least three major concerts and practices singing daily. In Band a student learns to play along with accompaniment while perfecting their talents with the particu¬ lar instruments they are playing. The Arts classes here at Morton teach not only the basics of all art knowledge but teach a student how to become an effec¬ tive art consumer. Along with this a student learns how to be creative by using his or her imagi¬ nation by assembling materials into a project worth being proud of. Each one of these different classes lets a student show off or develop what talents they do possess. When one takes a class out of the Fine Arts section one gets to do things he normally would not in a strict school setting. These classes can be taken just for fun or for the practice a student may need in a developing talent. Yet it must be remembered that when a student decides to invest his time in the Fine Arts he is still expected to do the work assigned to him in class. by Laura Dosado 66 Fine Arts GETTING IT RiGHT-Ruben Fiores and art teacher Mr. Fisher work together setting an enlarger in the school’s dark room.

No Time To Waste Industrial Arts Keeps Combining physical dexterity and mental know-how Industrial Arts is a class for students who want to work with their hands doing different projects. Just like other classes, Industrial Arts teaches its students different skills one can build on. By putting together what a student learns from one type of class the same student can use those skills and apply them in another class. Indus¬ trial Arts is also a good class to take if one is interested in pursuing a future that involves using one’s abilities to think quickly while using one’s trained hands. The courses an interested student might take are almost as numerous as the pos¬ sible routes these classes may lead Students On The Go them. A few courses that a student might want to invest his time in are Power Me¬ chanics, Drafting, Woods, Metals, and Welding. Each one of these classes can be taken at any time during the years one spends at this high school. Any one of these different skills issues a challenge to each student. The classes do keep even the most efficient student busy be¬ cause once a person gets one project done another is waiting. This is not to mention that a person gets a good skill in the bargain. Industrial Arts is a class that keeps a student busy no matter which field he or she does. by Laura Dosado TIGHTERHI-Senior Chris Walsh enjoys himself as he Industrial Arts 69 has some fun tightening a vise for a project in Wood shop.

Photo by Bodie Skills For Our Lives Students See A Glimpse Of The Business World The Business world is a mystery to most who have no part in it but any stu¬ dent at Morton High School can have a glimpse by taking any of the Business courses offered here. A student can start just about anywhere though the ini¬ tial class most taken is Keyboarding or Typing 1-2. Some other classes a stu¬ dent may wish to take are General Busi¬ ness, Accounting, or Shorthand. In Shorthand a student is introduced to a whole new language which takes the place of usual letters and replaces them with curved lines and dots. In Account¬ ing class a student learns how to bal¬ ance books for a business and at the same time learns a much needed skill in the business world today. A student in Keyboarding learns the positions of the letters and the numbers on an electric typewriter. In Typing 1-2 the learning goes a step further when a student prac¬ tices how to build their speed on typing assignments, letters and tests. Folding envelopes and learning the different styles of typed letters is really just a be¬ ginning of a typing class. A student also learns how to deal with the usual office pressures. What a student gets out of a business class could help them later in life even if they do not go into business. by Laura Dosado Photo by Bodie SECRETARY IN TRAINING-Freshman Ron Estes and Juniors Cheryl Pierce and Jessica Popovich do one of many exercises in Keyboarding.

PLEASE RISE - Junior Terra Relinski checks on her dough for a project in her Foods class which is one of her electives. Whether one is ready or not one will be confronted with tons of dirty laundry, a baby or two or the challenge of creat¬ ing new dinners everyday. These are all the staples of everyday living. This does not mean everyone will be caught creat¬ ing new variations of old left overs or be¬ ing crushed under a mountain of dirty laundry, but the truth is that most of us will. A Home Economics class could give one the background for the perils of ev¬ eryday life. “I think the students will find that the Home Economics class that they take today will help them later in life,’’ says Home Economics teacher Mrs. Mudra, “Each class in the Home Eco¬ nomics Department offers many skills for life.” The Home Economics Depart- pendent Living, Child Development, Foods 1 and 2, and Sewing. Classes in the Home Economics Department are not required and can be taken as electives. A student in Independent Living explores what it takes to live on one ' s own and how to basically sur¬ vive. Foods 1 and 2 instructs students in the art of cooking. Sewing teaches students how to transform simple cloth into wearable garments. Child Development investigates the devel¬ opment of a child and the critical part the parent plays. By Laura Dosado A Quest for knowledge Students Discover Enlightenment in Science There has never been a truce be¬ tween knowledge and ignorance. Sci¬ ence itself is a quest for questions a per¬ son cannot answer. Science is the kind of course that leads students to fin d the discoveries about the world around them and how it works. Science is a powerful combination of all the arts of schooling that has one basic purpose which is to explain everything and to make it easier. There are many courses taught here at Morton High School rang¬ ing to the simple to the advance. Health and Safety is a required course that all Freshmen must take. Biology and Chemistry are two classes that are a bit more complicated but are rewarding in the process. Botany, Honors Biology, Physical Science, and Physics are spe¬ cial classes a student may find an inter¬ est in. Zoology is a class in which a stu¬ dent learns more about animals inside and out. In Honors Biology one learns about what animals really think and their behavior patterns. Physics is a class which teaches the student about how to put physical and chemical happenings together in Mathematical formulas. Some of the Science courses are for a single semester, while others are for a whole year. Any of these courses offer new and exciting experiences to the people who are interested. by Laura Dosado ' - i FOCUSING-Sophomore Billy Smitka draws pictures of cells for his Biology lab which he sees under his microscope.

Mathematics for the talented few are easy but for the rest of us, Math is difficult. It can be said that Mathematics is like a crazed donkey, just when we fi¬ nally get a firm seat on the beast, we usually get thrown off. Why do we again and again try to perfect our Math skills? This question is answered easily enough by the reason that Mathematic skills are vitally important in the modern world to¬ day. Many of the sciences that make our lives more bearable are supported by Mathematical theories. Math has be¬ come essential to our existence. Many doors that are open now would be closed if Math did not exist. The world depends on Math to make it run efficiently. Mathematics are that important in our lives. Without them there would not be any of the machines we now have that make life easier to live. We would not be able to build the rocket ships we have now. Mathematics is a skill that is gradually acquired. One does not know all of what Math is about by just doing one problem or taking one course. Math is like life, most of the time. It is a pain in the neck. Yet, it must be remembered that Mathematics is truly a craft that takes time and rewards all by teaching patience to the brave.

I f In Peak Condition Physical Education Aids Students’ Health The sky is a beautiful blue, people are running around you screaming about some flying spherical object that is doomed to land on your head. The thought hits you — Is this school? Is gym really part of school? Gym is as much of school life as the grubby tennis shoes one wears on one’s feet. It is hard to believe that gym teaches a student im¬ portant qualities, but according to Mrs. Lueken, a gym teacher, it does. “I try to teach discipline whether they take part in the motivation or not. I try to push them to do things they are supposed to do.” Motivation in gym is hard especially when the student is not athletically in¬ clined but the gym program at this school assures that everyone will get a chance to participate. Some of the sports played in gym are basketball, baseball, volleyball, football, soccer, tennis, badminton, weight-lifting, and swimming. All these are given to the stu¬ dent to enjoy and help condition his body. Everyone hopes when he leaves gym he is a little more fit then when he began. Gym is like anything else it is a different experience for each person. To some, gym is perfect bliss especially when it is held outdoors. To others, gym is like being thrown into a river of slime. by Laura Dosado 78 Physical Education THE BIG DISCUSSION - Wayne Pavey and friends casually gather about as they talk over an interesting topic in thier Substance Abuse class.

Photo by Bodie History is Made Today History is a Never-Ending Process No one can really guess what came first — the chicken or the egg, but in the case of history and the social studies teacher, one can be assured that history came first and the social studies teacher not long afterwards. In these fast and fran¬ tic times, the study of how ancient people lived and worked can sometimes be relax¬ ing but the test day following can be a pain. Even if a student could learn all the facts and dates of history there would still be more to learn because everyday of any life is part of history. No matter how small or uninteresting or even useless a life may be that life may play some part in the making of what history is today and may be tomor¬ row. Now while we do the things we are assigned to do, there are important things that are shaping what we will do with our futures and these important things no mat¬ ter how small or unimportant will change our lives. The whole point of learning histo¬ ry in school is to see what mistakes and successes other people have tried in their lives. It is in this way that we can see the path more clearly concerning our own loves and maybe not make so many mis¬ takes. It is by this evidence that makes his¬ tory a kind of never ending process. When we finally do leave school the history of who we are and what we wish to accom¬ plish will fill our everyday lives. The history we learn now in school will help us out later in life and maybe guide us to what will real¬ ly make us happy in our lives. -Laura Dosado CHECKING - Christy Vlaky looks over Roland Galdana ' s papers as part of her work as a Peer Tutor. Peer Tutors Open Up The World For Others Being A Friend Students helping students. That is what Peer Tutoring is all about. As one of the more challanging opportunities here at Morton attracts dedicated, intelli¬ gent, and understanding people. A Peer Tutor not only has to be a teacher but a friend as well. Both students benefit from this relationship and both learn something about themselves. “It’s fun to see the kids doing something that they have not been able to do before, like dialing their phone numbers or remem¬ bering their adresses. Something that you have been working hard with them to see them do that job it makes you very happy because it was really hard for them to do,” replies Kay Ferrer. The Peer Tutor program started as an effort to help students with severe handicaps meet students of their own age. “The special education students benefit in a lot of ways. They learn ' Social Skills’. They learn how to form relationships and how to be friends and the students learn how to treat them as one would treat a friend.” explained Mrs. Medwitz, a special education teacher. As a tutor a student recieves one hour credit in So¬ cial Studies. Students become Peer Tu¬ tors because they enjoy being among people and like the students they are working with. by Laura Dosado LENDING A HAND - Ruben Huarta lends his assis¬ tance to David Chovan who is learninng how to read.

Well if you have, the answer is Organizations. There are a variety of groups that range from spirit leading, to fighting drug abuse. Some of these Merry Makers are Poms, Economic Club, Publications Departments, Ski Club, Drama, Thespians, Cheerleaders, Speech Debate, Chess Club, the Honor Society, Science Club, Photo Club, the Vocal Em¬ bassadors, Band, Boosters, Operation Snowball, Timmerettes, and SADD. All of these Organizations use a lot of imagina¬ tion and talent to get the job done. HUSTLE!-The Special Olympics soccer team rushes on to the field for another victory.

The Honor Society Mem¬ bers serve as hosts when visi¬ tors come to Morton. The re¬ quirements for them are pretty tough. You must have a GPA of 4.4. Also you must have leadership in some way, such as a class officer or an editor. There is an application that must be filled out also. The list of names is sent to the teach¬ ers. If, for any reason, a teach¬ er thinks someone should not be inducted, they write it on the paper before they hand it The Society of Women Scholars is an honorary soci¬ ety for girls with a 4.0 GPA. This group had various speak¬ ers come in and talk about the various occupations that are open to women now a days. The speakers are from col¬ leges who direct some groups.

" It’s fun, learning about cultural experiences. I’d encourage others to join.” Toni Sancya Building Up This past year the Drama club had a successful play, " Effect of Gamma Rays On Man-in-The Moon Marigolds " , on February 26, and 27. It was directed by Donn Edwards. The club also toured to other el¬ ementary schools. There they performed Childeren’s plays, they provided staging for such events as Homecoming, Assem¬ bly, and Graduation. The Science Club also had an overwhelming turnout with the help of Miss Turk, Dr. Petterson, and Mr. Weiss. The group traveled to Indianap¬ olis, March 12, for their third year at the Science Olympiad. Also, on February 20, they displayed their science projects at Gavit High School’s Science Fair. Bringing together their Cultural and Language experiences is ex¬ actly what Mr. Bolinger’s and Mrs. Sersic ' s Foreign Language Club did this year. The Foreign Language Club re¬ turned to Purdue University where they feasted on French dinners. The Morton Foreign Language Club scholarship was also hand¬ ed out this year for one who would like to attend college. Mr. Safstrom’s Speech and De¬ bate team concentrated on real life situations and feelings of indi¬ viduals. The 21 students in De¬ bate attended tournaments on Saturdays where they faced their competitors for organized argu¬ mentation. The Science, Drama, Speech, and Foreign Language Clubs proved that working hard to gain success could be done.

Chief Photographer Spreading News T he Publications depart¬ ment is made up of two separate groups; the Mortonite, and the Top Hat. The Mortonite staff met dai¬ ly during second hour and the Top Hat staff met during sixth hour. Even though they only had one assigned hour of the school day, that didn’t mean that was the only hour they did their work. There was a lot of hard work spent in making the yearbook and the newspaper. Some people even gave up their lunch hour to work on their assignments. Putting together a yearbook and newspaper wasn’t some¬ thing that could have been done in one day, most staffers had work to do every night at home and in their spare time during school. The money that they collected from their fundraisers went into their accounts to help with the many expenses there were. The honors of these groups of students are recognized in an honorary society for Journal¬ ism. This group is called the Quill and Scroll. Their are certain grade requirements to be induc¬ ted also, it is an honor for a jour¬ nalism student to be recognized in this group. Also, another re¬ quirement, is that you must be on Top Hat staff for a certain amount of time.

Sing A Song The Vocal Organization is made up of three active groups, the girls choir, the concert choir, and the Ensem¬ ble. Each had its own class during the day. The Girls’ Choir had first hour, the Con¬ cert Choir had second hour, and the Ensemble had third hour. The Ensemble is also known as the Vocal Ambassa¬ dors. In order for one to be in Ensemble, one must try out for it. A try out consists of a dance routine, and a song to sing. They perform anywhere in the community when asked. They never ask for money for doing it, but most people give them a donation of twenty or thirty dollars. The Ensemble and the Con¬ cert Choir went to Scott Middle School where they did a per¬ formance for the eight graders. They also had their annual Christmas Concert in which the Concert Choir, Ensemble, Girls’ Choir and the Band all partici¬ pated. Mr. Morrison stepped in this past year as the new vocal teacher. It took some time for the students to get used to him and for him to get used to them. They pulled through it and they are doing great. One of the dif¬ ferences from last year is they sang to a piano, now they sing to pre-recorded music.

Makers The Morton High School Band is more than just an after school activity. Each member of the band had one hour of their school day dedicated to band class. The class was held only during fifth hour. Playing an instrument takes years of practice. This isn’t just some club one can just decide to join and donate a few hours. Most members have had years of practice to play an instrument. The band is full very talent¬ ed musicians who may con¬ sider it a hobby or even those who may want to take it up professionally. They also have fundraisers to raise money for new items. The band performed in many places. They performed during halftime at the football and basketball games. They also performed at the Christmas Concert that was given by the Vocal Organization. They also marched in many parades. Some of them were the Little Red School House parade, the Morton Homecoming parade, a few Christmas parades, and a few fourth of July parades. They also participated in the City Wide Pest here at Morton during the spring. Some band members went to Riley elementary school to per¬ form for the students there. This past year, the number of people in the band decreased compared to the previous years, but this past year it was involved in many more activities.

They make posters and hung them all over the school to arouse the students enthusiasum. The Boster Club is full of members who have dedicated their spare time after school. They also sponsored the yearly ‘Powder Puff game. It is a flag-football game be¬ tween the Juniors and the Seniors. The cheerleaders have three groups for the three separate levels. The Varsity cheered at the varsity games, Football and Basketball. The Junior Varsity squad performed at all the JV games and during the second half of varsity games. There were five people on their squad, one ju¬ nior, and four sophomores. This past year there was a boost in the number of the fresh¬ man cheerleaders. Out of the nineteen girls who tried out, fourteen of them made it. They cheered at the freshman games and were required to go to the varsity games in uniform. The Poms were selected after the football season this year. The reason for it was, the spon¬ sors wanted more time to re-or¬ ganize and replan everything from last year. They selected 24 girls for the squad, and a chore¬ ographer. By Kim Hensley FIRST TIME JITTERS!- Junior Kelly Edinger gets kind of mixed up in the first performance given by the Poms.

" It’s an exciting experience, You learn a lot about photography and dark-room techniques.” Mary Santana STUDENTS MAKE THE EFFORT The Home Economic Club’s is to learn about everything from clothing to centerpieces. The club has had a big turn about this year. They partici¬ pated in writing letters to the Hammond Nursing Home to bring themselves to relate to the elder folks. The members helped the elders to cope with everyday life. The Chess Club’s purpose is to participate in tourna¬ ments around the area to im¬ prove their chess skills. The club has had a candy fundrais¬ er this past year to participate outside of the state. They meet twice a week in Mr. Bol¬ lingers room where they also hold their own inschool tour¬ naments. The Photo Club, sponsored by Herr Meister, Learns every¬ thing about photography. President Mary Santana and Vice President Roxanne Ceis- lak help teach their members parts of the camera. The club was very active this year, with having to shoot passport pic¬ tures for people going to Ger¬ many. They also had a suc¬ cessful fundraiser with key chains. Most of all, they en¬ joyed viewing the city of Chi¬ cago to take pictures there. The Timmerettes enjoyed keeping time for our swim¬ mers at the home meets. Each girl took a lane, equiped with a watch, to help the individual swimmer on their own lane. The girls agreed it was a fun experience. by Kim Hensley “I was impressed by the attraction of more people. I hope the interest will continue til the next year.” Heidi Dodson Outgoing Students UP-The weightlifting club pumped up this past year with their new “lift-a-thon”. The weightlifters took pledges from their friends, relatives, students, and teachers. They then received money that was pledged for each pound they lifted. DOWN-Ski Club is a down¬ hill ski club. They want to add cross country skiing to their plans for next year. They took many trips to the Pines, and Timber Ridge. The club collects dues and keeps costs down by spon¬ soring a candy sale and a dance. Their dance was co¬ sponsored with the Speech and Debate. ALL AROUND-is exactly where the Caving club has gone this year. They caved in a seven mile ra¬ dius of Bloomington, Indiana. This past year was the first year in three years in which the Cav¬ ing Club was active, due to Mr. Weis’ unfortunate back injury. The club also serviced the people by cleaning up the caves while they were down there. They picked up the litter off the floor of the cave and then put it in its right place. Caving is like exploring an underground world, according to Mr. Weis, and is also a very fun experi¬ ence. The cost of these caving trips were forty dollars a person. This money paid for their hotel and transportation. They had to bring their own money for food.

CHEESE!- Freshman Deanna Beagle sports her spirit on Hawaiian Day during spirit week. “Being on the COE staff gives you alot of experience for jobs. You learn alot about certain things and you broaden your horizens. I work form 8-12 everyday and get paid while going to school.’’ Lisa Smeberg Helpful People S.A.D.D. (Students Against Drunk Driving) and Operation Snowball are two very impor¬ tant organizations. They let students show how they feel about students using drugs, and driving drunk. These stu¬ dents try very hard to spread the word around that you do not need to drink and drive, or use drugs. They had a dance this past November to raise money to go to lectures and conferences on these sub¬ jects. On October 24th and 30th they attended a state confer¬ ence in Indianapolis about driving under the influence of alcohol. Student Association and ICE COE are also important groups in our school. The Stu¬ dent Association sponsors many activities that show our school spirit. They sponsored the Culture Fest held before school started, and they also sponsored the yearly Inaugural. This years theme was ‘A Night On The Town’. The Student Association president also gives us the daily announcements in the first ten minutes of second hour to let us know what’s going on. The ICE COE program allows students to attend work as well as school. At work their boss’ act as teachers and give them their grades. This program, bought to our school by Mr. Speelmon a few years back, teaches the students responsi¬ bilities of handling a job as well as going to school.

It’s chair¬ person, Ms. Williams, is trying to get students, teachers, and par¬ ents involved in the welfare of our school. SIP gathered after school in the library and in the evening in the fac ulty lounge monthly. The Future Problem Solvers is a group brought to Morton this past year by Miss Draskovich. This team brainstorms prob¬ lems that are given to them in the form of a fuzzy situation. After brainstorming, they pinch the problem with the most impact and find a reasonable solution to it. Then they send it to the judges through the mail. They are graded on thier problem solving ability and on the effectivness of their solution. Acid Rain was their first prob¬ lem: What could it do? What could be done to prevent it? Their next subject was space traveling. On their solution, the senior team scored 500% better then the first time, and the freshmen team scored 200% better. Their next problem was the regional qualifying situation. It dealt with the elderly of the future. Maybe one day these solu¬ tions might actually help us pre¬ vent this.

Well, this past year it seems as though Ski Club was, with its boost in membership and greater interests in activities. This past year they were much more active than previous years. Presi¬ dent Andy Zawadski thinks they are more organized this year due to the problems that have risen in the past years. They also had two fundraisers: | a dance, co-sponsored by Speech and Debate, they also sold candy. They are only a downhill club right now, but they may become both with the growing interest in the club. Our newest club to Morton was the Health Careers club. It was started by our school nurse, Mrs. Perez. In this club, Mrs. Perez will edu¬ cate the members in health ca¬ reers and different conditions. Mrs. Perez’s long term goal is to teach them CPR. Along with learn¬ ing about all these things, they have fundraisers. These fund¬ raisers will start a fund to help those students of Morton that are sick, and need financial help with doctor bills. It will be confidential. by Kim Hensley 106 Faces Division Morton High School has a variety of young people. Each day a student wonders, “What am I going to do after gradua¬ tion?” This question comes to the minds of everyone, although it is most common for juniors and seniors. They’re reaching the point were childhood is going to be left behind and maturity is one step away. Juniors have the feeling of one more year, while seniors go through the preparations of growing up. Some will continue and go on to college, while others will go on to get a job. Each and every one of us will miss the good old days of our high school years, by looking through the mem¬ orable pages of faces. Wedding Bells Are Ringing This has been a very good year for two of our administrators and two of our teachers here at Morton. Mr. Steve Stavros, and Miss Ramona Engel were married on October 2,1987 on Homecom¬ ing day. Their wedding was a com¬ plete surprise to Ms. Engel. She recieved a message telling her to come to the teacher’s lobby. She walked in and someone said, “Welcome to your wedding.” They were married by the mayor Mr. Tom McDermott. The wedding was very casual with all plans made by Steve himself. Also Mr. Dan Mayerik and Ms. Teresa Kline were married on No¬ vember 21st, at Valporaiso Uni¬ versity Chapel of the Resurection. The ceremony was a traditional Christian ceremony. They had a large old fashion ethnic Slovack- Polish wedding reception. The best man was Dan’s brother Rich¬ ard and the matron of honor was Teri’s sister Patrica. Teri’s daugh¬ te r Kari was the flower girl and her son Nick was ring barrer. The ju¬ nior groomsman was Dan’s neph¬ ew and godchild Richie. 108 Faculty Morton’s Administrators Mr. Steve Stavros Principal Mrs. Teri Mayerik Assistant Principal Teachers Are Involved Photo by Bodie TALKING IT OVER - Coach Fred Kepler talks over a play with Senior Christopher Walsh. “COME ON DOWN " !! - Mr. David Safst nounces the graduating class of 1987. Here at Morton the teachers are not here just to teach but also to en¬ joy the fun and activities and really get involved with the students. Some of the activities in which teachers participate in are: being coaches, and sponsors for classes and groups or clubs. Alot of stu¬ dents feel that teachers participate in these activities because they get paid for it, however, they do not. Teachers deserve credit for all their work in planning and time they put in out side of class. So next time you recieve an assignment to do just re¬ member you only do it once and your teacher does it for about 25 times for 5 classes. Photo by M.

Senior Summaries 131 Class of ’89 The Junior class is all ready for their Senior year. Some of the Seniors to be said, “I can’t wait to be a Senior. I’ve looked forward to being leaders for years now, to be the UPPER CLASS MEN,” said Amy Turner. Daniel Thompson said, “I can not wait to be a Se¬ nior either. I want to walk down the aisle to get my diploma with my name on it and prance around my parents looking proud.” The Junior officers were unable to take a pic¬ ture for this page so they will just be mentioned here: President, Kathy Stevens; Vice President, Dee Bednar; Secretary Gina Rivera and Treasur¬ er Patti Revere. They are all leaders and represent their classmates very well. The council has done many things this year in¬ cluding a bonfire, Thurs¬ day night during Home¬ coming Week, which was the first time in many years this has happened at Morton or any other school in this district. They also have had sever¬ al fundraisers and saved quite a bit of money on their account to put to¬ wards the Senior Prom. The sponsors for the Ju¬ nior class are Mr. Larry Kocal and Mrs. Turk. I hope the Juniors have a great Senior year. by Lisa Smeberg Juniors Think ' 89 KI CKS-Shown here a colorful display of Junior class spirit. They must really think that the class of ' 89 kicks.

After one learns how to drive they will not have to worry about how they’re going to get home, how to get to and from a basketball, football, or a soccer game, and how to just get around. It also leaves the option to just KROOZE around with friends when there is nothing to do. Although being able to drive can be alot of fun, it brings with it a lot of responsibilities. Such as gas , car insurance, taking care of it, paying monthly payments, and just keeping it up and clean. All the students may not have their own cars now, but in the future or in their Senior year they may be owning one or just using mom and dad’s. Many car accidents have occured for many various reasons. Sometimes bad weather, people not paying at¬ tention, speeding, or just reckless driving. Owning your own car, you must obey traffic laws, even though you think you are a good driver you still have to watch out for those drivers who don’t pay attention or are driving under the influence. There are many advantages to owning your own car, or just having your licence and using your parents car. Some of these are; you can come and go as you please, drive to school, drive around at night with friends, or just take it out on a nice sunny day. There are also a lot of disadvantages. You have to maintain your vehicle at all times. You have to take care of it, you must have insur¬ ance in this day and age as there are many thefts, and vandalism going around. You have to always make sure there is enough oil, transmisson fluid, water, and most of all gas in your car at all times. Anyway there are a lot of things you need to know about a car than just how to drive it. Every one drive safe¬ ly and have a good year!! By Lisa Smeburg ABSOLUTELY AN ACCIDENT - This car was once in an alright position to drive, but after an accident that would have been stopped is right now at a junk yard not being driven. Please be careful when driving and wear your seat belts. CLASS OF ’90 The Sophomores are glad that they are finally over the title name of “Freshman”. For some of the upper class- men they ' feel that sopho¬ mores are still at the bottom of that long ladder of which we all know that the final step of that ladder is being a SE¬ NIOR. The Sophomore class is very enthused that they can finally walk the halls here at Morton without the word freshman being used against them. For some of the sopho¬ mores this was not a prob¬ lem. Either they grew up with upper classmen or had older brothers or sisters that they could hang around with. The Sophomore class ar¬ ranged many fund raisers throughout the year. They ranged from Halloween suckers in October to Spree candy sales in the Winter months. These sales will enable the Sophomores to sponsor next year’s Ju¬ nior Senior Prom. Al¬ though the Sophomores had many fund raisers, they still face the problem of not enough money. They feel that this prob¬ lem of not enough money can be solved if they have more involvement and have more than that same handful of kids sell¬ ing the candy and partici¬ pating in the various fund raisers. by Robert Perez 140 Sophomores Sophomores JIB SHOVELING IT IN-sophomore Jim Prucnal makes sure he’s full at the German Cultural Experience.

Their attendants for the Homecoming Weekend were Tina Vasic and Sean Anderson. They were chosen to lead the whole Freshman class. They had a few fund¬ raisers to put in their Freshman account for when it comes their time to hold a Junior Senior Prom. Class sponsors are Mrs. Stavros and Athene Stevens, who have put much time and effort into the class of ’91 and much time into the entire school. The Freshman Council is Rachael Agosto, Denise Davis, Anatoli Stravopoul- os, Allison Kwaitowski, Brandi Roger, Daphny Homco, Tina Vasic. Dean¬ na Beagle, and Patti Axa- rides. All whom are very qualifed for the council and to lead the Freshman class. A freshman was quoted assaying, " Iwaitedforthis time to come when I would be able to go to the same school and walk down the same hallways with the upper classmen and to participate in the sports I want to.” The class of ’91 will go far. I think and hope they achieve everything they want to in life and in the future. 148 Freshmen Freshmen Rachael Agosto Kimberly Alee Michelle Altieri Jon Anderson Sean Anderson Patti Axardies Milena Balalon Mary Barrientez Dylan Bartley Lisa Baxter Deana Beagle Sherry Beller Jennly Bevil Robert Bicanic Cathy Bisect Scott Biller Mariann Bircher Brand Bisbee Candy Blue Theresa Blumenhagen Carrie Bodenhofer Tanya Bohencamp Renea Boe Jerry Bradley Cathy Breclaw Nancy Bright Chris Brown Scott Brown David Brys Larry Buckner Tim Burcham Scott Cambell Mike Carbone Mark Carrothers Joe Cartensen Sean Carter David Chapman Stephanie Chokey James Clark Stacey Cole STUDYING HARD- Freshman Stephanie Juran studies hard for a test in Mr. Cooliges’ World History 1 class.

Going from place to place trying to get a person to buy an ad, takes a great deal of courage. You have to have a good attitude and a smile at all times, to make all the effort worth while. Your cheerful laugh will not get the job done all the time. You have to use your charm and wit and believe you’re the best salesperson around. If that doesn’t work and all else fails you have to get down on your knees, flash on the puppy dog eyes and beg!!!!!! 156 Advertising Division 7042 KENNEDY AVENUE (Hessville), HAMMOND, INDIANA 46323-2290 219-844-1600 LINDA L.AULT Secretary Treasurer 158 Advertising Advertising 159 Advertising 161 mufflers-shocks CUSTOM BENDING BRAKES PHONE (219)844 3939 Lrtflc Caesacs HERB GUTTERMAN 6135 KENNEDY AVE.

Some just sit bach, while others stand up and cheer. PUNCHING IN - Senior John Clemens punches in at his place of employ- CONIC ON - friends gather together around before school to make plans for lunch and after school. GRRDURTION Graduating is o time for beginning or starting life for some. Most will go on to college but some will work. 3a Q Closing 187 We must come to another glorious end, as we close out the 87-88 school year, just as all parties must come to an end. The graduating seniors have pushed their final step to graduation. We have laughed and we have cried, but know it’s time to say good-bye. Some of us may have a great feeling of satisfaction and completion from completing another year full of trying times. Every class, from freshmen to seniors, has a special place in their hearts for Morton Se¬ nior High. We will all remember the hallowed hallways, where we shared our deepest secrets and our most vibrant announce¬ ments. For many of us, the party has just begun. The graduating seniors will be start¬ ing their lives. Many will go on to college, while some may find employment. Respon¬ sibilities for them will increase. The 1987-88 Top Hat Party Is Over.

Kathy Barbara Greg Brown Heidi Dodson Jeff Galinski Advisor. There are many who will complain about this book, because there are natu¬ ral born critics. I have no true com¬ plaints. I feel, the completing of this book, is an accomplishment within itself. There are many who do not know what it takes to put a yearbook together. They are usually the complainers. I would like to thank my staff. We all put this book together, just as a team works together. My special thanks goes to Mrs. Jan Gil- lard, our advisor. The book would not be finished if she were not here. She did ev¬ erything from advising to taking photos and helping with the copy. Mr. Bob Hen¬ ning, who helped us with layout designs and choosing the theme deserves a spe¬ cial thanks, also. He is the representa¬ tive from the yearbook company. Mr. Jim Bis also deserves a special thanks. He is the professional photographer from Bodies. He did all of the senior por¬ traits and some photos throughout the book. Lisa Dosado and Wendy Nugent deserve a thanks for their special art¬ work. We chose the theme " LET’S PAR¬ TY " because we felt our style needed a little change. The same thing each year gets boring. Do not ever forget " LET’S PARTY”. It was a fun book. Thanks to everyone who pitched in and gave a helping hand.
