Hpowcter Hornu on such a
theme. Industry is, and ai-
Ways will be, a prime factor
in the tives of the people
in this district. It provides

We, the senior Class of 1Q56, dedicate this
annual to au of our members who will go
forward into industry. and become the industrial
leaders of the future.
Friendliness and comrczdesfrip call to you across the velvety expanse of green.
It is with mingled sorrow and pride that the members of the graduating class of ,56
took back over the years spent at George Rogers Clark AH experience some degree of sorrow
because, as they realize that they are leaving the school forever, they carft help but sense
a strange, hollow feeiingg and their pride surges forth because they are honored at being ttie
first graduating class to attend au four years at Clark. . 5
Now at the completion of their high sciioot careers, and as they took into the future,
the graduates hope to bring all possible honor to the school, for ttiey. Icnow that what suc-
cess they may obtain can be credited to the happy, profitable years at George Rogers Clark.

Xvortc was hegun on the Powder Horn this year with one thought in mind: to produce
a hetter annual than last years However, it didnt take the statt long to Find out that that
was no easy task. XV hat improvements there are, are due largely to the knowledge acquired
in puhtishing Powder Horn Numher Une iast year.

and features. T here were moments when the cotd-hearted husiness man hrusquety turned
down the opportunity of a lifetime to advertise in Ctartes annuatg and there were glad
moments when seniors hegan Coming to schooi with permanent waves, ioest suits, and picture-
taking smiles. But when we turn the pages ot the 1956 edition, we can not help hut smite
at the work we put on it, and feet it has heen worth white.
And we hope you like it.

BOARD QF EDUCATION
The success of a large industry depends greatly upon the ahitity and power of its
leaders. As each large industry has its hoard ot directors, so do the Harnrnondschoots have
their Board of Education. This group consists of Five men-Mr. Fred XV. Dedetow, Dr. Clar-
ence A. Mcvey, Mr. Claude C. Soht, Mr. Clarence A. Mason, and Mr. Elmer McKay.
Vxfe thank them for the interest they have showin in our school and its enterprises. Nve also
wish to thank Mr. L. L. Caldwell, our superintendent, for his friendliness toward us and
As large industries have different hranches, and section leaders, our school, George
Rogers Clark, has its principal, Mr. R. B. Miller. tt is with great sincerity that We take this
opportunity to thankhirn for his thoughtful and sympathetic guidance through the past tour
years. V A L
XV ith such competent leadership, We are sure that our school and its activities will
make progress. A

Ttre Student Council at Clark is not a student government, as are most student coun-
ciis. Ratner, its function is in an advisory capacity. With two students from each room, it
represents time student body to the principal and faculty.
in addition to that function, it has performed several ottrer services. A safety com-
mittee, a iocicer committee, and a iost-and-found committee were appointed at the beginning
of tire year. A group from tiiestudent council is being organized to visit other sctroois in
this region and to study time organization, regulation, and conduct of time student-bodies. From
what ttris committee learns it is hoped that Clark may be benefited.
The council is yet young and is stiH being developed. Within a few years, it will
doutntiess be one of the most important organizations in school.

THE SENIOR CLASS
Marching from Franidin School on a snowy, wintry day in Fehruary 1952, these
memhers of the First freshman class were awed, anxious, and thrilled hy the new school that
awaited them. Leaving Franklin was like ieaving home, hut the spirit of adventure domi-
nated, as heautiifui dreams ot the four years to come were spun.
Closely coordinated with the sophomore ciass, they hiazed the trail for Ciaricys future
classes. Many ciuhs with memhers of the ,56 class as their leaders, set a prestige. Notahie
woric was done hy the argumentative inclined in dehate, white others found their places in
music, arts, sports, and drama.
How unhehevahiy fast the days passed! As juniors, Miihree-Cornered Moonf, a com-
edy with a realistic setting, was produced. Then came an event placed on the first page of
lovely memories, the Junior-Senior Prom honoring the First graduating class. Regretfuiiy they
hade good-hye to the seniors as their close relationship was hroicen.
As sophisticated seniors, words smoothly Hew from journalistic pens, opponents felt
hetore superior dehating, while high scores were made in foothaii and hasicethan. Hdonesyf,
the annual ciass play, was produced and everyone enjoyed its delightful
and reaiistic humor.
Under the leadership of Mrs. Alice Admiral, this was the happiest,
and most protitahie year of an. Vxfhen the date of the Prom, given in
their honor, and the date of graduation approached so rapidly, the ciass
that grew up with this school was sorrowful. Niarching out as they
entered, they passed the torch, that had so adequately lighted their way,
to the ciass of ,57 with the hope that they may pass it on to au future

It was a sunny Septemher morning in 1954, when this group ot amhitious and pro-
gressive young students entered the smatt struggling school of Pioneers who were fighting
for recognition. Quictdy they felt into step, and on hecoming more acquainted with the school,
they learned to love the prevailing spirit.
Another year quicldy rotted around, and found them vvorlcing With enthusiasm that
Won the recognition and admiration ot their higher classmates.
This year Miss Joan Coughtin succeeded Miss Pearl Yocham as sponsor. Zealousty
the class Worked in extending their tist of activities and achievements. As genial hosts and
hostesses, they sponsored a series of matinee dances to aid the underctassmen in dancing.
In the early spring, the junior class play, Hgtciddingf, was successfully produced.
The climax of the entire year Was the Junior-Senior Prom given in honor of the second
graduating class. Those who participated Witt long rememher this picturesque event.
Qur congratulations are extended to the juniors and their sponsor with the hope that
their last year Witt he the happiest and most memorahte of att.

Wbiie it is tbe youngest of organizations wbicb campete witb otber scboois, debate by
no means lags in accompiisbment. A member in two debate leagues, Clark reacbed tbe top
in botb, setting a record for future teams to strive for.
Having iost tbe district contest of tbe Indiana State League to Hammond last year,
Clark took revenge by defeating Hammond in botb debates, and by splitting witb botb
Wasbington and Roosevelt, won tbe district. in tbe regional contest, by triumpbing over
Lew Wallace, Crown Point, and Rensseuaer, Clark became one of tbe eigbt Indiana scboois
eligible for tbe state finals. But only tbere did Clark lose out-to Princeton.
In tbe Greater Cbicago League, tbere was ttie co-cbampionsbip witb Proviso, won last
year, to defend. Losing only two debates, Clark maintained its place by tying witb New
Trier for first. A first next year will give tbe scbooi permanent possession of tbe leagues
Aiso tbis year, Clark participated in tbe annual Misbawaka tournament for scboois
in nortbern Indiana and was tbe only scbooi to sbow a one bundred per cent victory, Its

is devoted to a suhject which is ctiscussect hy two or three memhers who have prepared re-
ports on the suhject. Some of these topics have heen personality, family relations, clothing,
and wise home-management. The ctuh has also taken several trips to department stores.

customs, life, or history of that people. Les Cercies Francais is designed to meet that Iaclc,
to enahte the French students to Icnow the pe opie of France as Weil as their language.
Divided into two groups-one of the first year students, the other of second year
students-the ciuh has met twice a month to present varied programs. Some of the members
have corresponded with students in France, and the letters received have heen a source of
interest and enjoyment. The pupils have read together familiar stories in French, comparing
them with our versions English, and have ie amed French folic-songs wen enough to sing

good thing they don,t know how much they,ve missed or we,d never hear the end of it,H
is the opinion of the memhers of the Horticulture Ctuh.
The ctuh, which was organized two years ago and is growing, meets every week The
meetings vary: slides are shown at someg at other times Field trips are taken. Often the ctuh
meets on the school lawn to study the plants and their care. Clad: is known as one of the

This cluh, less than a year old, was organized with ctouht in the mind of the sponsor,
Miss Carolyn Larnhert,-clouht Whether there were enough interested in poetry to make such
a ctuh a success. There is no douht novv. True, it is a srnautgroup, hut it has heen an enthu-
siastic, persistent group which Wilt certainty grow.
The ctuh faces a general opposition in the too common belief that poetry is an etfemi-
nate interest, one that cannot he uncterstooct hy the orctinary person. One of the main ohjec-
tives of the Poetry Ctuh is to change this opinion at Clark. HDon,t let any long-haired, ahsent
minded, vacant-eyed, would-he-poets ilcid, youf, is their war cry. '
And that sounds like a fair enough proposition to the editors, so they will Wish the ctuh
success, and a long lite.

T he increasing interest in science at Clark has heen accompanied hy an increasing
agitation for a science ciuh. This desire culminated in the formation of the Bio-chem Ctuh
last tau. Derivingfits name from hiotogy and chemistry, and devoted entirety to these two
suhjects, this ciuh is a hranch of the National Qrganization of Science Ciuhs. This large
organization extends over the entire country, with hranches in high schools, and it puhiishes
a current science paper.
The plan at Clark has heen one of individual projects. Each memher has chosen one
or more phases ot these sciences and has done special work on those choices. The result has
then heen presented hefore the ciuh.
Early in the year a hanquet was held at which Mr. L. L. Caldwell, the superintendent
of schools, was made an honorary memher. Ctuh projects have included trips, talks hy men
experienced in these sciences, and movies oncertain phases of the sciences.
Handicapped this year hy the experiment of organization, the ciuh looks forward to
future years with high hopes. I

they surpassed any of their previous playing. And it was Worth it, unanimously 'the judges
placed them in the 'first division and recommended them for the nationat contest at Cleve-

Clark is very fortunate to he represented through its coaching staff hy tive different
universities. Boys and girls alike feet that they owe a great deal to these tive men. Their
undivided attention and efforts have helped to make our school what it is in the line of sports.
Michigan University is represented hy Coach L. H. Taylor who coaches varsity foot-
han and haskethan. Mr. R. XV. Cunningham is the Physical Education Director and coach
of track and wrestling. He comes from Indiana. Mr. Marshall Chandler, freshman foothali
and haskethaii coach, hails from old Purdue, while Mr. Raymond Harris, tennis instructor
and assistant track coach, represents minois. Mr. R. C. Cox is the grade school football and
haskethau instructor and comes from Ban State Teachers, College.
Through the efforts of this coaching staff, Clark has provided real interscholastic com-
petition, and the interest in intermurat activities has heen greatly increased. During the very
short time that Clark has heen a four year high school, it has made surprising progress.
Athletics has played a great part in giving Clark the name it has today. The recognition
that Clark has gained has heen due to the fact that the school has proved capahie of holding
its own against any school in the district.

FOOTBALL Q 1
With the closing of the gates on the gridiron, we found ours v ' sing a very suc-
cessful season with Five victories and three def eats. This is a good percen and an improve-
ment over last year,s record.
This year,s team was at a disadvantage in weight and size with most Sf their opponents.
Qur Pioneers, however, were equal to any other team in fight and determination. 4
Again we were unahte to defeat our old rivals, the Vxfhiting Qiters. XV e lost to them
hy a score of 18-7. Vxfe did heat Hammond Tech, and played a very thrilling game with
Hohart when we scored the only points made in the last halt-minute of the game.
Vxfe certainty had a Fighting team this year with a numher of outstanding players.
George Bercilc, taclde, and Captain Ray Gronowslci received honorahte mention on the AH-
State team picked hy Dick Miller of Indianapolis.
Coach Taylor deserves great commendation for his efforts and hard work The hoys

BASKETBALL "AU SQUAD A
ln spite ot some losses, Clarlc proved itselt a great ball team during tbe past season,
and slioweditselt capable ot swapping punclieswitb any team in tbe region. llre squad
truly proved its caliber wlien it played Lew Vxfallace to a tie in two over time periods, only
to lose by tree ttrrows.
Qur big accomplislament in baslcetball tbis year, laowever, was tlie defeat ol two major
opponents, Hammond Teclr and Tlfromton Fractional.
.lobn Navta, tlaat speedy, dead-eye guard bas been seen in a Clarlc uniform for tbe
last time. So bas Bob Doering, tlue tall, lanlcy center. Bob can be rated among tlae outstand-
ing centers ot tlae region, because ot bis good worlc tliis year. Bill Green and Ray Gron-
owslci liave also worn tlae blue and wliite for tbe last time.
Fritz Kraly, tlae speedy deceptive forward, bas been elected captain of tlie squad for
1956-1957. .lolm Filipelc will also be baclc witb lwis dead-eye sbootingg and along witli tllese
boys, we will lmave rloe lVlatonovicl1, Vxfilbur Buerlclaoltz, and Fred Stelow.
At tlae East Claicago Sectional Tournament, Clarlc defeated tbeir two opponents, and
found tbemselves matclied against tlae Hammond Vxfildcats in ttre Finals. Tbe tournament
tans predicted tl'1at Clarlc would be downed by a large score by tlsris team, supposedly tlie
best in tbe region. But a surprise was in store tor tlie Xvildcats, tor ttrey barely beat Clarlc

SONNET FOR SENIORS
The on1y time we knew, when we were sma11,
Existed in the things We did each day:
And too, heyond our games, and toys, and p1ay,
There seemed to us no other wor1d at a11.
Then schoo11 Qur vvor1d increased surprising1y
Vxfhen We had 1earned to read. But time was s1ovv:
'To graduateffl-:the dozen years to go
Vxfere centuries, the time too tar to see.
Vx7e11, so We thought: hut Time, the foo1,
Fhes Fast and taster. Yes1 weive reached the p1ace
At 1ast, that seemed so far - vvebre done with schoo11
Yet, Iiving it again, Within our mind,
Vxfe rea1ize, gasping from schoo1,s 1ong race,
Vxfe 1eave a precious part of 1i1:e hehind.
Chester Powell, ,36

In industry, it has been found that
in order to increase sales, advertising is
an essential feature. Through advertising
and its results, the producer and consumer
are greatly Ioenelfited. In connection with
a yearbook, the purpose of advertising is
twofold: the merchant has an opportunity
to present his products to the public, and
the readers of the annual are able to see
the merchants who cooperate with the
school. We Wish, at this time, to thank
the merchants for the friendly spirit with
which they have aided tus. l
