POWDER HORN 19 3 5 PUBLISHED BY ROGERS CLARK p D E R THE GRADUATING CLASS OF GEORGE HIGH SCHOOL, HAMMOND, INDIANA, 1935 Just as that great pioneer, George Rogers Clark, started his explorations, we, the class of 1 935, enter this field — entirely without experience. First at- tempts are ever imperfect and so is this, our first annual. But we hope that the care and the spirit that has been put toward the making of this book, will out-shine all defects that one might find. We have divided the Powder Horn into the following books: ADMINISTRATION CLASSES CLUBS ATHLETICS FRIENDS The staff wishes to thank those who have so willingly helped in the editing of this annual. Generously they have donated their services. Especially the aid given by Mr. Cox, the senior class advisor, and Miss Franklin, of the Art De- partment, was of inestimable value. We, the class of 1935, dedicate this, our first annual, to Mr. Miller, the principal of George Rogers Clark, in appreciation for the untiring guidance he has shown throughout our school career. In the history of the two schools, Franklin and George Rogers Clark, that old saying, " History repeats itself,” is again portrayed. In the latter part of the eighteenth cen- tury, Benjamin Franklin was among the great leaders. He helped to establish the organized government in the East. Then it was George Rogers Clark who took up Franklin’s work and carried it on farther into the West. So it is with the two schools. Franklin School set down the foundation for the education of many students and now George Rogers Clark has taken those students for the purpose of furthering their education. Even though we left Franklin School in favor of George Rogers Clark, we will never forget it, because there some of the happiest moments of our school career were spent. Eight February, 1932, marked a great month in the lives of many, for it was then that we bade a fond farewell to Franklin and entered George Rogers Clark. Those pupils that came from Franklin will never forget the awe and delight that overcame them upon first entering the new building. Halls and rooms seemed so spacious that getting lost was an everyday occurrence for some pupils. We have been at George Rogers Clark for several years now, and the admiration we had for it at first has only been greatly in- creased during these years. The school is still new and young, but we feel certain that it will soon make as big a name for itself as any school in the district. Nine ADMINISTRATION In carrying out almost any project, leaders are necessary for its success. George Rogers Clark, a leader among the early pioneers of this region, was a man well-trained and capable of holding such a position. George Rogers Clark High School is in its pion- eer days, but because of its able administration, it has possibilities of making its name as a school as renowned as the man for whom its was named. Ten Vu uccULon The pioneers of old, those brave men who forged their way westward across moun- tains, plains, and rivers, owed a great measure of their success to strong, capable, sympathetic leadership. The same thing is true in our present day school life. There are financial mountains to be climbed, rivers of discouragement to be forded, dreary plains of ignorance and misunderstanding to be crossed. We are glad of this opportunity to express our thanks and appreciation to Superin- tendent L. L. Caldwell, who has been a true friend at all times and who, to a large ex- tent, made it possible for us to be in the splendid building we are today. Likewise, we owe a debt of gratitude to the Hammond School Board. Until February of the present school year, the board consisted of Mr. Richard C. Arner, Mr. Fred W. Dedelow, and Dr. Clarence A. McVey. Mr. Arner retired from office in February, at which time three other members, Mr. Claude C. Sohl, Mr. Clarence A. Mason, and Mr. Elmer McKay, were elected to serve, making a total of five men on our present board. We feel that all of the above mentioned men have had the welfare of the Ham- mond Public Schools at heart, and we wish to thank them for their sympathy and their understanding of all our problems. Eleven Helen cun a The Student Council, first organized in 1934, is the students’ unit of government within the school. There are two representatives, a girl and a boy, elected from each home room. The officers for the school year, 1934-35, are: President George Petruff Vice President Janis Meldahl Secretary Mary C.

Those comparatively few children who were taken into that wilderness were taught at home by their parents. Since then, methods of teaching have been greatly improved, until we are now given the opportunity for education in specially equipped buildings, by teachers well trained in their various fields. Sixteen Sponsor President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Mr. Ralph Cox Jimmie Sparks Robert Straker Mary C. Smith George Petruff ’Twas the last year at Franklin and all seemed quite well, What might come in the future no one could foretell, For at George Rogers Clark would begin a new life, Of real pioneer hardships and plenty of strife. But having Clark’s spirit always in view, They began in full swing with their subjects so new, “By our efforts we hope to rise " — their slogan did stand As they strove to become the best school in the land. Two whole years passed with activities at hand; Chorus, athletics, as well as a new band Were now organized with the young Sophs in the lead — By all means this keen class would do great things, indeed. “Tea Toper Tavern” served many a guest, Weary from travel and in search of some rest. We must remember the cast had loads of fun Many hours were spent happily and much work was done. Hurrah, they are Juniors, so dignified and wise, And look .they have proved to us “It Pays to Advertise,’’ Henceforth, they score again in a pleasing way, And we are sure they will yet for many a day. Whew! they’re Seniors. How fast the years have passed, There’s a Senior meeting to be called at last. “We might have an annual,” said helpful Mr. Cox, " But first we must find means to get money in the box.” There’s a smell of good doughnuts fresh from the fire. Hear Ye! the seniors are taking them straight to the buyer. They’ve worked hard, but ’twasn’t at all in vain For the proceeds of the sale showed quite a gain. Faint and gentle murmurs are heard throughout the hall. It sounds as though they are planning a great ball. Oh, yes, ’tis the beginning of the gay, gala affair, The Junior-Senior prom and of course everyone is there. Winners they are, for they’ve reached their goal They entered their project with heart and soul The first graduates of George Rogers Clark School Are passing from school life to life’s school.

ALICE JIM ALFRED WALTER BETTY ADMIRAL GILMAN HEIN PORACKY YOUNG Sponsor President Vice President Secretary Treasurer One snowy, wintry day in February, 1932 — anxious, eager-eyed, thrilled, perhaps a little awed— a group of young people marched from Franklin to t heir splendid new school home at George Rogers Clark. Leaving Franklin was a hard thing to do, for it seemed like deserting an old friend with whom one has had many enjoyable and interesting hours. But new experiences called, and in true Pioneer spirit that first freshman class forged ahead. High were their ambitions, dauntless their courage, beautiful their dreams of the next four years. Willingly, they cooperated with the sophomore class in blazing the trail for future Clark classes to follow. And so that first year passed by in routine work and as they became more acquainted with their new home, they grew to love it. Prominent have they been in all school activities. The drama called to some, while those athletically inclined found their places in the various sports. Many of the school clubs installed enthusiastic members of the class of ' 36 at their heads; band, chorus, and debate teams were supported by these girls and boys. How fast the days flew! Before they realized it, the junior year appeared in sight, a busy, prosperous, happy year. The class play, “Three-Cornered Moon,” a comedy with a realistic setting, was successfully produced. But the year was not over, for with it came the climax, the Junior-Senior Prom, in honor of the first graduating class of Clark. Everyone who participated in this glamor- ous, colorful event will long remember it. We wish to congratulate the juniors and their sponsor, Mrs. Alice Admiral, upon their splendid work throughout the years, and we hope their last year will be the hap- piest, finest year of all.

Thirty MISS PEARL EDWARD MARY MADELINE ANNA YOCHAM DAVIDSON DMITRUCK BICKHAM SNOW Sponsor President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Self-assured, meeting the eyes of the upper classmen without fear, smiling a bit condescendingly at the timid, wide-eyed freshmen, the members of the class of ’37 entered the C. R. C. portals in September, 1934. They had made their place in the school and its activities the year before, and they lost no time in organizing their class and proving to themselves and to their sponsor, Miss Yocham, that they intended to ac- complish something in the next few months. Their names appeared upon the Honor Roll; letters were presented to both girls and boys who had distinguished themselves in athletics; budding actors and actresses, and musicians were discovered among their members; and all school activities were enthusiastically supported by this class of ’37. And so with half of their high school days in the future, the sophomores are looking ahead in the true Pioneer spirit for new fields to conquer.

Thirty- two MISS LEAH JAMES WILLIAM ANNA OLGA BOOTH CALLES SCHNELL MURZYN HOLLECK Sponsor President Vice President Secretary Treasurer It was only in the recent fall of 1934 that a group of lively, ambitious, yet some- what bewildered, young students, entered the gates of high school under the capable leadership of Miss Booth. Maybe there were some embarrassing moments, a few mis- taken class rooms, the wrong seat in room 8, but even the mighty seniors, the non- chalant juniors, the condescending sophomores were once “freshies. ’ And it was not long before C. R. C. took notice of this, the largest class in the his- tory of Clark. Material for future all-star football and basket-ball teams appeared; while the fields of debate, drama, and music were enriched by the entry of the class of ’38. A great future is predicted for these enthusiastic girls and boys, and all our best wishes go with them.

Today in school we are able to join clubs organized purposely for almost any interest we may have, whether it be in lan- guages, music, drama, business, or social service.

A few weeks after school began, while walking through the halls, one could hear the buzz-zz of low tones, and upon coming nearer, the word “Annual” could be dis- tinguished from the others. Yes, everyone wanted one, for after all, it would be the first annual in the history of Clark High School. It was no wonder that the pupils were so enthusiastically aroused. With Mr. Caldwell’s much-awaited-for permission and the students’ enthusiasm, it was announced that an annual would be published providing everyone would give his cooperation in the matter. A competent staff, under the direction of Miss Yocham, worked diligently in order to produce a publication that subscribers would proudly keep and treasure as the first annual of George Rogers Clark High School.

With the coming of the new school term last fall, came the organization of a Jour- nalism class together with a new school paper. After considering the many names sub- mitted to it, " Pioneer News” was selected as the most appropriate one for this young newspaper. In order to publish the " Pioneer News” the following staff was elected by popular vote: Editor Bob Straker News Editor Wilma Grindle Editorials Barbara James Sports Bill Binder Exchange Alex Malek Art Capitola Ready Business Manager John Fech Circulation Albert Pieters Advertising Mike Brenkus Mineograph Jimmie Sparks and George Petruff This publication which was distributed every other Tuesday had a very strong finan- cial standing because of its many subscribers and also because of the loyal support of its many advertisers. The staff was capably advised by Miss Laura Schad. This new newspaper aroused the interest of the entire student body, and there is a great promise of future success.

" On the basis of these good debating tactics, I hereby award the decision of today’s debate to George Rogers Clark High School” has been the statement of numerous judges during the past debating season. We award the decision to the debate teams of Clark also for excellent work done in upholding the honor of the school. As a pioneer in the forensic field the Clark debating squad, composed of two teams, affirmative and negative, has lost only four debates this season. It has won twenty- two debates defeating such schools as Hammond High, Washington, Roosevelt, New Trier, Lew Wallace, Merrillville, and Von Stueben. The Clark squad this year became a member of the National Forensic League and the Greater Chicago Debating Conference. The N. F. L. sponsors the national contest for speech and debate and awards honors for excellence in debating. Several members of the team have won N. F. L. honors this year. The Greater Chicago Debating Confer- ence is composed of twelve schools who debate each other in turn, the winner of the greater number of debates receiving a silver loving cup. The question for debate this year has been, Resolved: " That the Federal Govern- ment should adopt the policy of equalizing educational opportunity throughout the nation by means of annual grants to the several states for public elementary and sec- ondary education.” The affirmative team is composed of Alice Catterall, Chester Powell, Meinert Mag- nussen, and Harvey Foster as alternative. The negative team is made up of Bob Strak- er, Bill Catterall, Bill Binder, and Frank Buehler, alternative.

President Chester Powell Vice-President William Green Secretary Robert Straker Treasurer Martha Ann Avery Program Chairman Regina Haslam Adviser _ Mrs. Agnes Kraft In the spring of 1934, this organization was first introduced to our school through the inspiration and encouragement of Hammond High and Hammond Tech girls. The club was not officially organized, however, until September 1934. " To face life squarely” and “To find and give the best " are the guiding principles that each Girl Reserve tries to follow. Interesting trips, combined meetings with the Hammond and Tech girls, picnics, teas, and dramatics were some of the many activities enjoyed by the girls of this club. The great success of this organization lies in the cooperation of the sponsors of the different interest groups with the entire group of Girl Reserves. The officers are: President, Doris Vater; vice president, Dorothy Evans; secretary, Elizabeth Dedinsky; treasurer, Ludmilia Valko; general sponsor, Miss Pearl Yocham; sponsor of dramatic group, Mrs. Agnes Kraft; sponsor of charm group, Miss Elizabeth Brown; sponsor of recreation group, Miss Leah Booth; sponsor of social service group, Mrs. Eddy; program advisor, Miss Laura Schad.

The Choral Department of George Rogers Clark, under the direction of Miss Pearl, has as its two main organizations the Girls’ Chorus and the Mixed Chorus. The Girls’ Chorus completing its second year of existence, is composed of selected voices. This choral group practices four days a week during the third period and in the last year has participated in the Christmas Festival at Clark, the January and April band concerts and the Senior Commencement Exercises. Increasing interest has made this organization one of the largest in the school. The Mixed Chorus, which meets every day during the seventh period, was organized last fall as an A Cappella choral group. In the past year it has performed at the Hammond Chamber of Com- merce Welfare Drive luncheon, at the Whiting CR. S. Parent-Teacher joint meeting, the Fall and Spring band concerts, and the Lion’s Club Christmas luncheon. During the second semester this choral study was made elective with a .5 credit toward graduation. It was the beginning of serious study of vocal technique and an introduction to A Cappella singing of an advanced type. TOP ROW: Lewis Hensley, Edward Blohm, Wm.

The George Rogers Clark High School Band organized for the last school year with the election of the following officers: President George Schmidt Vice-President Meinert Magnussen Secretary Rosamond Uhrin Treasurer Edward Blohm Under the direction of Mr. Elkin the band displayed its talents at many of Cla rk’s football games. Likewise, they entertained the parents and teachers at one of the P. T. A. meetings. In order to prove their musical ability, they entered as a contestant in the Annual District Contest. Their activities were climaxed with the presentation of two successful band concerts given at the Community Center. One of these was the Winter Band and Choral Con- cert, the other was a Spring Band and Choral Concert. During the past few years, Clark has been proud of its band which has increased in membership and improved in quality. The entire school is backing and hoping for its future success.

The proceeds were turned over to this department. Two charter members from each room make up this club. In the future it will be known as the Athletic Board. President Janis Meldah!

In one of the interesting assemblies at Clark, Mr. Emerson, a horticulturist of prac- tical experience, surprised the student body by announcing his willingness to organize a Horticulture Club. This ambitious group of naturalists took advantage of his suggestion and readily fol- lowed his ideas. News was soon spread that this group was working on miniature home and garden planning projects which would be entered in the spring contest. Instruction sheets were given out at meetings to give members ideas how to plant rock gardens and improve home-gardening as a whole. These students derived practical experience by working around the school as well as around their own homes. Since this club numbered only a few members, the work was more interesting and personal, as the instructor had a better opportunity to give in- dividual training.

Like many other clubs at Clark, the French Club has had quite an active year. It is divided into two divisions, the advanced group and the beginning group. Under the direction of Miss Andrews, the meetings were held once each month. Many interesting persons and places of importance in France were discussed. One of the features of this club was the correspondence between Clark students and students of France. Many of the letters received were of an educational and interest- ing nature. Pupils read their letters and displayed photographs which they received. In this way their enjoyment was shared with the other members. Some of the club members received Christmas gifts from their French correspondents. The programs consisted also of French games, crossword puzzles, songs, stories, and original dialogues. Among the activities of this organization was the presentation of the French play, ‘‘L’Anglais Tel Qu’on le Parle.” The officers of the Advanced group are: President Elizabeth Chermak Vice-President Paulene Gilman Secretary : Doris Vater Treasurer Milton Kaplan The officers of the Beginning Croup arc President ....

Although this is a newly organized club, it has done much in its two years of existence in making itself a success. Remember “Three Cornered Moon " sponsored by the Junior Class? That was a play worth seeing and of course everyone that saw it enjoyed it to the fullest extent. Many favorable comments could be heard after its presentation. Then came the Senior play entitled Big Hearted Herbert. " This, too, proved to be very entertaining to its amused audience. Besides these two plays, the Drama Club gave a play for the Whiting High Drama Club. Whiting in turn gave a play for the enjoyment of Clark ' s Drama Club. One-act plays were given at many of the club meetings. The officers of the club are: President : - — Harvey Foster Vice President Archie Judson Secretary Meinert Magnussen Forty-nine ATHLETICS At the time when the Northwest Territory was inhabited by the early pioneers, much of their time was spent in laying the foundation for our present states. In spite of the fact that they were burdened with work, however, the pioneers always found time to hold matches of various sorts. Among these were knife throwing, shoot- ing, and log-rolling. All these helped to train the contestants for any thing they might meet in their daily lives. Besides affording amusement, these matches helped one to become trained and skilled. Correspondingly, the athletics of today provide super- vised pastime which trains the contestants and helps them in their physical develop- ment.

With the clamping of the lid on the football season of 1934, we find that we are closing a very satisfactory piece of work, with the exception of one walloping by the Whiting Power House, which was accomplished to the tune of 26-0. Otherwise we find it containing many thrilling and hard-fought battles which went to make up a very successful football season. A great deal of credit must be given to Coach Taylor and his assistants who through their efforts and hard work turned out this successful team. The team was led by Captain Frank Buehler who did a wonderful job in his position at center. Then we had Mike Brenkus who starred all year and was given an honora- ble mention in the All-State selections. A great many members of the team are graduating this year. Those boys who re- ceived letters were: Frank Buehler, Edward Bakos, J im Gilman, Walter Waggoner, Ray Gronowski, Joe Burosh, George Bercik, Meinert Magnussen, Leaton Graham, George Petruff, Bob Doering, Al Kasperan, Jimmie Sparks, Mike Brenkus, Louis Hensley, Frank Horonsky, and Joe Derybowski. Those who received reserve team letters were: Mike Muse, Eugene Walzcak, Alex Malek, Ray Pachinlski, Ed Davidson, George Ihnat, Joseph Macnak, Fred Render, Al Kovach, Mike Kampo, and Stanley Sheaffer. Ray Gronowski was chosen captain for next year and he has the best of wishes for a successful season.

Lett a u Cl to nc l c rt In winning thirteen out of twenty-one games Clark closed the best basketball season in its history. Marking her entrance in the four year high school class, she has set a rec- ord and standard for the coming teams to follow. Mike Brenkus and Louis Hensley, those long-shooting fast-breaking speedsters, have been seen for the last time in a Clark suit. Alex Kompier, whose wonderful work un- der the basket made him outstanding, has also donned the blue and white for the final game, as have Frank Horonsky, Jim Sparks, George Petruff, and Joe Burosh. Bob Doering, who took high honors and easily clinched the center position, will be back next year to improve on his outstanding record. That speedy, deceptive guard, Johnny Navta, will also be back, with George Dubich, Mike Kampo, and Fred Kraley to be all important cogs in the five who are sure to go places next year. Clark has beaten at least once every team she has played, with the exception of Lew Wallace, Whiting, and Hammond Tech; and has scored an average of twenty-six to their opponents twenty-two points per game. Mr. Birkett, who coaches basketball, has great hopes for the future when he looks at his B squad, who were beaten but once during the season and won nineteen out of twenty games. His successful coaching of the basketball team is greatly due to his intimate knowledge of each player’s abilities, having known and coached some of these boys when they were yet in grade school. 17 Clark ... 21 22 Clark 25 16 Clark . 30 31 Clark 20 16 Clark ... 30 16 Clark 31 20 Clark 26 23 Clark 19 Whiting ..... 28 Clark 25 . 21 Clark 20 23 Clark. 26 27 Clark 23 22 Clark 20 22 Clark 25 14 Clark 30 ..... 24 Clark 39 27 Clark 29 Catholic Central 31 Clark 33 18 Clark 15 Calumet Township 28 Clark 36 Fifty-three Robert Savage, Jim Gilman, Lewis Hensley, Bob Straker, Jimmie Sparks, Mike Brenkus, Edward Bakos, Raymond Gronowski, Robert Ward, William Green, Frank Hronsky, Robert Doering. Track, like football and basketball, has gradually grown with the school. Some track work has been done for the past three years, but this year ' s team was the largest and showed far more promising ability than any team of the past. Track was supervised by all three coaches, Mr. Cunningham, Mr. Taylor, and Mr. Birkett. The boys owe a great deal to these men for the time and effort spent in successfully coaching the different athletic teams. Four boys attended the state meet: Brenkus, who took part in the broad-jump and sprints; Sparks, in pole vaulting; and Bob Doering and Bill Green ran the mile. Two of the above boys are juniors and two are seniors, but there is also some prom- ising material in John Fetzko, Norman Issacs, and Raymond Siegal, who are but soph- omores and freshmen. Prospects look bright for a successful track team next year. Wrestling, like swimming, has just been started and so far has been a huge success. Mr. Taylor started the season with five boys and ended it with twenty-five. He is very enthused over the growth of the squad and predicts great things for them next year. All of the boys now on the squad will return next year, most of them being sopho- mores and freshmen. Mr. Taylor hopes to increase his squad to thirty-five next year. Although the team was defeated by Morgan Park they did very well for the length of time they had practiced. An intramural wrestling meet was held for the purpose of bringing to light some prospective wrestling material for next year. £ w mi mu i 1 Swimming is yet in its infancy, mostly because of the lack of a swimming pool, but also because the sport is just beginning to be built up. Mr. Cunningham, the swim- ming coach, is fully satisfied with the start that has been made this year in swim- ming. He plans to continue to build up this sport until it becomes one of the school’s main events. About fifteen boys were out for swimming and even though their meets did not bring many honors, the experience gained was of much value. Fifty-four euniA Julian Kapitan, Rex Boal, Meinert Magnussen, Archie Judson, Leonard Ogren, William Binder. Tennis, although a popular sport, has not had very much of a chance at Clark to rank among its major sporting activities. The school had its first tennis team last year composed of about seven players, five o f whom received letters. Those players who received letters were Archie Judson, Bill Binder, Rex Boal, and Meinert Magnussen. They were required to win three matches to receive a letter. Mr. Cunningham, who coaches tennis, voiced the opinion that “tennis will grow very rapidly in popularity, just as football and basketball have, and we hope in the future to produce some very good teams.” The “C” club is an athletic organization composed of the boys who have received a varsity “C” in any major sport. The boys on receiving their “C’s” automatically be- came members of the club with no initiation or requirement other than that of obtain- ing the letter “C.” The purpose of the club is a dual one; the first being the betterment of athletics, and the second establishing a closer contact with the alumni. Once a member of the club you are a member for life and have the privilege of tak- ing part in any of its activities even after becoming an alumus. The officers are: President, George Petruff; vice-president, Jimmie Sparks; secre- tary, Mike Brenkus; treasurer, Archie Judson; sponsor, Mr. LaVerne Taylor. TOP ROW: Walter Poracky, Deloss Burk, George Petruff, Joe Burosh, Robert Doering, Leaton Graham, George Dubich, Jim Gilman.

THIRD ROW: Jimmie Sparks, Mike Brenkus, Frank Hronsky, Rex Boal, Meinert Magnus- sen, Edward Bakos, Frank Buehler. All girls interested in sports may be members of the Girls ' Athletic Club. The mem- bership consists of approximately one hundred twenty-five members. The purpose of this organization is to promote good health, to make well rounded athletes, and to practice good sportsmanship. Any girl who is active in any sport eighteen hours, over a certain period of time, re- ceives twenty-five points. Those girls receiving three hundred points earn a small “C.” Athletes having six hundred points get a monogram, and for one thousand points they are honored by getting a large " C.” C. A. C.
