The original 10 column layout was developed by our staff for our own purposes and convenience. The Paragon has 2 pica inner margins with outer margins of 3,4,4,6 picas. The layout style for the Paragon focuses on a dominant picture per two-page spread with an effective use of white space. The Paragon was printed on 90 lb. paper, in a Calais (Dull) stock. Copy was set in 8 pt. Spartan Lite for captions; 10 pt. Spartan Lite for page labels; 12 pt. Spartan Lite for body copy; and 30 pt. Spartan Lite Upstyle for heads. The scoreboxes and cast blocks are in 20% grey screens with a 5 pt. 80% border. The border around the faculty and class picture panels are 2 pt. 100% lines. A 3 pt. 100% border was used around divider page pictures with a 5 pt. 100% border around the divider copy. The theme copy is in reverse on a 100% block. The copy blocks are flush left, ragged right with emphasis on informality. A major portion of our photography was done by Walingers Studio of Chicago, Illinois. The pictures were made from 8x8 black and white glossies. The special effects in photography were achieved through the use of a fish eye lense, wide angle and super wide angle lenses. The 10, four-color pictures in the opening are a part of a Rainbow-Color plan offered exclusively by Paragon Press. The 3 four-color pictures in the closing are not included in the plan. The cover was designed by S.K. Smith of Chicago, Illinois. The cover is in blue book cloth (AL 3-590) with lettering done in Green per 1969 Whigren. The book is smyth-sewn with headbands. The endsheets are color-coordinated with the cover. EDITOR ' S WIND-UP As we come to the close of our 1969 yearbook, we feel a sense of satisfaction derived from surveying a work completed. This work represents a combined effort of our faculty, student body, and our commun- ity. Because we feel very strongly that there is a unique quality in Munster of everyone working together to achieve excellence, we have used this as the theme of our book. It is our hope that this book has captured and expressed this quality of Munster High School. Answering questions such as " How is the yearbook doing? When will the book come out?— Experiencing a sudden popularity when accompanying a photogra- pher around school — Scheduling pictures and over- coming the difficulties of getting the exact pose — Meet- ing people and learning how to get along with all types of individuals, these are some of the trials and rewards of being a yearbook editor. Sharing with us these trials and rewards were our conscientious, dedi- cated staff, and our adviser Mrs. Wilson. Their contri- butions to the yearbook production — cropping pic- tures, fitting headlines, writing copy— made possible a full, complete book. We appreciate the staff members who forfeited their time to work on all — night and even all week-end deadlines. We are most grateful to our adviser for her devotion, energy, and enthusiasm. She was a fellow worker, planner, and worrier from whom we learned a true sense of dedication. Because you, the students of Munster High, are the real substance of this book, we hope it will be for you a meaningful remembrance of the lingering past — its enthusiasm, its failures, its apathy, its achievements. A review of a single year of an experience called life.
