POWDER HORN 1937 VOLUME III wimmond Public Ubrin OF THE GOOD SHIP GEORGE ROGERS CLARK HIGH SCHOOL Port Of Register HAMMOND, IND. I he Senior ( lass In is tried to present to you in this hxj the achievements of its last voyage — the school year o) 1936 - 57 . The voyage has been divided into three raises: fall. winter, and spring. Each unit presents the activities of its particular season. The class hopes that this hook is now. and will remain in the future, a pleasant reminder of a successful tourney. 37 ? vv e, the senior class of 1957, dedi- cate this log Poivder I lorn to Mr. L. L. ( aid well, Admiral of our fleet of I lammond schools, in sincere appre- ciation of his helpful interest through- out this voyage. 1 he flagship, George Rogers Clark, is ihe most up to date and complete ship in the fleet of Hammond schools. 1 he equipment that is used in chemistry, physics, biology, and home economics is modern and practical- ly complete. For the physical development ol the students, the school has a large gymna- sium having a playing floor seventy-five by forty-eight feet. Adjoining the gym are showers lor both boys and girls. The appearance ol the school itself, is very beautiful. In spring its grassy parkway, newly planted elms, and its beautiful dower garden arc especially inviting to all visitors. It is with much regret that we who are about to set out into the open seas of life leave this beloved school behind us. m As every navy lias its Bureau ol Naviga- tion to direc t the policies of the fleet, so does I lammond have a Board ol Education to direct its fleet ol schools. I his hoard con- sists ol live men — Mr. Fred V. Dcdelow, I )r. Clarence A. Mc ey. Mr. C laude C. Sold. Mr. Clarence A Mason, and Mr. Elmer McKay. I lie duty ol these men is to see that the Hammond schools are kept safe and in repair, and to provide for the high standard ol edu cation lor which the Ham- mond schools are known. In the past year, the Board of Education has arranged lor the building of two line schools which are rapidly nearing comple- tion, and which will soon be ready to weigh anchor. I hese two are the Edison and Morton Schools whose ports lie in the south- ern waters of Hammond. I he board has also arranged for the building of an addition to the Irving School in North Hammond. Our school hoard has helped in the ob- taining and building ol our athletic field which lies in the waters surrounding the flag- ship. George Rogers Clark. I he man who is directly responsible for the management of our sc bools is our Admiral. Superintendent E. L. Caldwell, l o him we express our appreciation lor his constant eflorts in our bchall, and lor his interest in our progress as a school. We Wish to thank the men on the Board of Education lor the things which they have done to make our school the finest of the fleet of Hammond schools. We also take this opportunity to thank the Captain of the ship, our principal. Mr. R. B. Miller, lor his skillful navigation dur- ing the voyage and for his friendly interest in every member ol the crew. MR. 1. I. CAI .DWELL Supt. of Schools MR. R. B.

STUDENT COUNCIL One ol the most important student organi- zations on the ship was the Student Coun- cil. I hrough this organization, all hands on the ship indirectly governed part of the adairs ol the ship. The council made three squads composed of various hands from the crew, and placed a member of the council in command of each squad. Ilach one had a specific duty assigned to it. I he lirst squad, under the command ol Sylvia Franken, was assigned to check up on the lockers ol the hands. Under the direction ol this squad, the hands learned to protect their valuables by keeping their lockers closed. Naturally the safety of the hands had to be considered; therefore the second squad. under the command of Janet Sweezy, was assigned the task of providing safety rules. I his squad also protected the bicycles of the crew by registering them. In this way if any bicycles were stolen, they could be easily identified. I he third squad. led by Marjorie Buell, arranged a series ol interesting and unique assembly programs. Since being in the Student Council pro- vides good training in governmental work- ings, we hope that some day we may be able to say of some great statesmen: We know them very well. J hey took their high school voyage with us. Offic ers are: Steve Novotny, president: Bill Schnell. vice-president; Dorotliymae I lultgren. secretary; Noreen Moore, treas- urer.

These and other nautical terms raced through the minds of the members of the “Powder I lorn’’ staff while working on the “Powder I lorn. I he reason for this was that the stall had decided to have a new theme for the annual of 1937, and you can knock me down a hatch if it wasn t unique. The minute the ship weighed anchor. the staff started work on the log. Although at times the task seemed long and tiresome, they rode out the waves of discouragement safely and reached their goal without having sprung a leak in the frame-work of their idea.

I he freshmen chose as their officers: Bob Smith, president: (fill White, vice-president: Evelyn Eddy, secretary: and Ann Brown, treasurer, with Mr. M. L. Mullins acting as their leader and adviser. Many ol these students have already en- tered successfully into the field of music, athletics, and drama. I en freshmen had the honor to he a part of the George Rogers Clark Band, thus enjoying the competition in the district and state contests. Lucille Christy. Doris Ourant. Marvin Francis, and Donald Sh earer distinguished themselves as line musicians on their respective instru- ments, in solo contests and in concerts. I Joyd Conley has the distinction of being the only freshman to receive a major letter in athletics this year. I his was awarded to him because of his line work in wrestling. Joe I labzansky and Curtis Buck received minor letters in wrestling. Seymour Kaplan was awarded a minor letter in tennis. Minor letters in cross country were awarded to Frank Kulasak and Camillus Duha. Mike aliska received a minor letter in basketball, being a regular on the “B” squad. I he Washington Swing, a Washing- ton s I birthday dance, was the main event ol the Midshipmen s first cruise. It takes its place among the best dances of the year. With three full years of sailing ahead ol them, and with such a line record for their lirst year, much may be expected I rom these hardy young sailors.

Fourteen members of this class partici- pated in the annual band contests, some winning honors in solo and ensemble per- formance. Several boys made the varsity basketball and football teams; and many participated in tennis, wrestling and track. I he Sophomores showed that they were as capable in sponsoring social activities as they were in scholastic pursuits, when they gave the most beautiful dance ol the year, the Winter Carnival. With a distinguished record behind them, this group ol Midshipmen may be counted upon to lead in seamanship before tbe end ol their high school cruise. First rou:: Betty Lou Freeburg.

Year Midshipmen boarded the ship determined to make this year the most enjoyable of their cruise. I hey started the social activities of the year with the Corn Huskers Ball. It was a most unusual dance because of the novelties it offered. I he Junior Flay, entitled I he Y oung- est, and featuring Irene Spanier and Steve Gabor in the leading roles, was one ol the best plays ol the year. I he outstanding social event in the career of any junior class is the Junior From given in honor of the graduating seniors. This year s prom was no exception. The gym was beautifully decorated; there was a splendid orchestra; and gay entertainment was fur- nished by the students. The Junior Class is one of the most active classes in school. Its members have distin- guished themselves in music, dramatics, athletics, and scholarship. Twenty Juniors entered the district and the state band contests, placing first in both. Gene Sherry and Dick Martinson, two ol the I ew musicians recommended to the na- tional contest from Indiana, won first place for their solo performances. I wenty boys in the Junior class played varsity football, and live Juniors were on the varsity basketball team, showing that the class excells in athletics. Three of the six members of the debate squad were Juniors. Steve Gabor received the Degree of Excellence from the Na- tional-Forensic League, the next to the highest degree available. Mary C harlotte Powell and Dorothy I arr received the De- gree of Honor. When the new chapter ol the National Honor Society was organized this spring, live Juniors were elected to it. I hey were: Helen Jeanne Beaubien. Steve Gabor. Louis Green, Mary C harlotte Powell, and William Scbnell. Nancy I runnel I was chosen to represent Hammond at the National Red Cross Con- vention in Washington where she gave an address on the subject: How we may keep the service fund growing in the high school.’ We commend the I bird Year Midship- men on the excellent record which they have thus lar made.

[ 23 ] COACHING STAFF I he coaching staff of George Rogers Clark is made up of four men, each heading a different branch of athletics. As each ol the men is Irom a different college, their combined theories help to make Clark an outstanding school in every line ol sports. Coach R. W. Cunningham Irom Indiana is Physical Education Director and is in charge ol track and wrestling. Under his supervision track, and more especially wrestl- ing, have risen to a level almost equal with basketball and football. Coach L. H. I ay lor from Michigan is in charge ol varsity football and basketball. It is Coach I ay lor who whips the men into first class form after receiving them from Coach Cox. Coach R. C. Cox. who hails from Ball State I cachers College, has charge ol grade school football, basketball, and track. It is be who gives the boys their first taste ol athletics and teaches them the necessary fundamentals. Mr. Raymond Harris Irom Illinois is in charge of tennis and freshman basketball and is assistant track coach. I his was Mr. I larris first year as freshman basketball coach and he did a very commendable job. All the students thoroughly ' respect our coaches; and they may well do so, for the Pioneers have risen far in the few years that Clark has been a high school, for our progress in athletics we give credit to the skill and perseverance of our entire coaching staff.

[ 27 ] GIRLS’ SPORTS As we walk along the deck we notice numerous girls competing in the various deck sports which are oflered on board the ship, G. R. C. Some girls are playing tennis, while others are engaged in exciting games ol baseball or vo lleyball. Let us take note of each sport as we stroll around the deck enjoying the sea breeze. I he tennis teams are under the direction of the co-chairmen, Mary Charlotte Powell nis tournament was held in the fall, many nis tournament was held in the Fall, many girls participating. Marietta Sparks won the singles, defeating Dorothy Lidgard. Norma Buell and Betty Lou Free burg defeated Dorothy I arr and Marietta Sparks in the finals ol the doubles. Ihe winners were awarded medals. Baseball has always proved the most pop- ular sport among the girls. So many girls come out lor this sport that they cannot all be pictured. I herefore, the girls put forth their best ellorts in order to be awarded posi- tions on the lirst team. I here is keen com- petition between the two picked teams, and the game becomes very exciting for specta- tors as well as players. Next to baseball, volleyball is the favorite sport among G. R. C. girls, learns were picked from the lour different class groups: Freshman. So, jhomore, Junior, and Senior. At the close ol the school year a tournament was held and the Juniors were acclaimed the victors. I he Seniors finished second, Sopho- mores third, and Freshmen last. [ 28 ] BASEBAI .1.

In a contest ol this sort teams from several dif- ferent: cities take part, all beginning the swim at the same hour in their respective cities. At the conclusion of the meet, the results are telegraphed from each city to all the rest participating in the meet. Another interesting diversion lor girls who have a yearn to handle a basket ball was a long distance basketball-throw contest. Billy Vater and Marion I loppe won at sixtv-five feet.

VOLLEYBALL [ 29 ] “THE GOOSE HANGS HIGH” On the night of November 12 , 1936 , the students of the S. S. George Rogers Clark presented for the guests on hoard a three-act play titled The Goose Hangs High, a play which gained a reputation on broadway and in an N. B. C. radio production. I his entertainment was made possible through special arrangements with Samuel French, publisher, of New York City. The story of ITie Goose Flangs High depicts the family life of a Mr. Bernard In- gals, a city tax assessor, whose three children, Hugh, Bradley, and Lois return home for the Christmas holidays and are showered with invitations to dances and parties given by the younger members of the town’s society. Mr. Ingals has a quarrel with one of the city councilmen. a Mr. Kimberley, who has fired Mr. Ingals stenographer and installed one of his political allies in her place. Mr. Ingals in a moment of rage mails his resignation to the city council and, after re- gaining his self-control, tries to stop the resig- nation before it reaches its destination. Realizing the consequences of their father’s hasty step, the children make immediate plans to give up college and careers in order to reestablish the family fortunes. However, Bernard s resignation is not accepted, the children return to college, and the goose hangs high. Cast Bernard Ingals Eunice Ingals Bradley Ingals .... Lois Ingals Dagmar Carroll . . . .

I he hoys have made a ticket booth lor the basketball games, charging dummies lor football prac- tice, loop tennis sets, a folding ping-pong table, and a hook cart lor the library. I hey have added to their equipment a gigsaw and a circular saw. Unlike any other Hammond school shop, our shop has an electrical teacher (question and answer board.) LIBRARY — We have been fortunate enough to ob- tain nearly three hundred new books in our school library this year. I here are nearly twenty student assistants in the library every day. At the end of May ther e was a library dance called I he Book- Worm Crawl. ART — I he art department did the art work for this year s Powder Horn , has made pos- ters lor all the school activities, and gave an art exhibit in the spring featuring the work of all the grades. An original idea in our art department is the work the students have done in making masks and figures of a new material called Spongex. DRAMA — 1 he drama class, independent ol the club, has produced four one-act plays this semester: Grandma Pulls the String, The Kelly Kid. Mcrrid ew s Right I land, and “The Killer. Steve Gabor was the most outstanding drama student this year in in- terest and activity. FOODS — 1 he foods class has served numerous teas to the faculty and mothers. Luncheons were served to the faculty every day I or a week in the spring. New ovens and an electric refrigerator were added to the department this year. CLOTHING — The girls in the clothing classes have been especially active this year. I hey exhibited finished garments in Gordons windows, made their Easter suits, and are making their lormals lor the Prom. A new iron and ten dollars worth ol scissors have been bought. As the class has studied different subjects, home projects on those subjects have been handed in. I he girls in the cloth- ing classes also modeled their finished gar- ments at a style show at school in May. MUSIC — 1 he music department this year has been furnished with a complete set of records lor a Junior High course in music appreciation. I he most active students in chorus work and other phases ol the music department this year have been Louise Will is and Betty Pearce. [ 52 ] t iu£e W ell manned, with experienced officers and a hardy crew, the cruiser George Rogers Clark sailed from port in a winter gale on January 4, 1957 . During this cruise the members of the crew found lime to indulge their special interests in clubs and deck sports aboard the ship. Many an hour of) watch was spent in the fo c sle spinning yarns and singing a lust} chantey. Sitting: Ann Kapitan. Marjory Rightcr, Miriam Ant i I la . Ludmiiia Vallco, Loretta Cullen.

PIONEER NEWS STAFF For the third successive and successful year the Pioneer News staff launched the Pioneer News, the official newspaper of the ship. With the aid of the journalism class, the staff was able to capably man the publication. Each I hursday morning every- one aboard the ship who had subscribed re- ceived his paper. I his year the staff made a vast improve- ment over last years paper. Formerly, the Pioneer News was published every two weeks, this year it was published weekly. In consequence, the paper contained only news which was of current interest. I he paper also had new and interesting columns such as Bits About Em, Man in the Hall. Flere and I here, and a style column. Other features wh ich deserve mention for their interest and originality are the editorials and the art work. As a parting word we say to you members ol the staff Sail on to new heights in your proposed careers, and may your hopes never sink.

Some ol them were experienced hands, and through their guidance the in- experienced members quickly obtained their sea legs. I his club is a branch of the National Organization of Science CIul is. I hereforc, the destination ol the members ol our club is similar to that of the members ol the other branches: that is. to help the students ol our school to have a better understanding an d appreciation ol the importance ol science in modern life. Under the sponsorship of the Officer ol Science aboard ship. Miss McAtee, the club quickly became one of the leading organiza- tions in the forecastle. Some ol the projects undertaken were: trips, (one ol the most enjoyable was to the Abbott laboratories in Chic ago,) talks by persons well founded in biology and chemistry, and most important to the stomachs of all. a grand mess, (known as a banquet to landlubbers.) was held in December to welcome the new members ol the club. An interesting talk on the progress ol science was given by Dr. Schmidt, and Mr. L. L. Caldwell, superintendent of schools, and honorary member of the club gave a short talk. In all sincerity we hope that some of the hands in this organization will in the future contribute much to science. Bon voyage to those who do!

IT Romeo doern t suit you, rlimh aboard ship and go to the Dramatic club. I here you will find more than one handsome young man. willing and capable, to take Romeo s place. But beware! there are many attractive young women there who would stop at nothing to prevent your stealing their Romeos. I he Dramatic club was organized by the budding I hespians of the ship, in order that those who were interested in dramatics might satis! y their desires. I he desire for seeing good dramatic presentations was more than amply fulfilled. The club went to see plays put on by professional groups. Among these was the comedy. Broken Dishes. I he club itself and the dramatics class took turns in presenting plays at the regular meetings. In presenting these plays the members not only provided entertainment lor the club, but they also acquired poise and experience which will enable some of them to sail on to a great future before the footlights. The officers of the Dramatic club are: Wenzel Augustine, president; Noreen Moore, vice-president: Marietta Sparks, sec- retary; Jackie Glair, treasurer: Mr. John E. Shanklin, sponsor.

POETRY CLUB I his is the second year the Poetry club, under the guidance ol Miss Lambert, has been an active organization in Clark. Idle club members can look back upon this voy- age as a successful one lor several reasons. First, the cl ub has doubled its membership over that of last year. Second, frequent regu- lar meetings have been held and interesting scheduled programs have been presented. I bird, some fine original poetry has been written by several members ol the club. I hese original poems will be added to tbe clubs collection ol original poetry First Might. I h rough the year, club members have also handed in favorite poems to be added to tbe club s anthology These — I o Remember. At the beginning of each semester attrac- tive printed programs were distributed w ' ith all the meetings, topics for discussion, and the leaders scheduled. Several of the topics were: Wordsworth. Frowning, and Tenny- son, Poe, Whitman, and Sandburg. I he Poetry of Christmas, Great Poems set to Music, and I he Poetry of Nature. I he aim ol the poetry club is to learn to know and appreciate the beauty and lorce of poetry, and to agree with the words ol W illiam E. H. Lecky, who said: And while the great and wise decay. And all their trophies pass away, Some sudden thought, some careless rhyme Still floats above the wrecks of Time. m Fust row: Lorraine Neering. Marietta Sparks. Virginia Till. Anne Muse, Ann Kapitan.

GIRL RESERVES A salute to the largest girls organization aboard ship! I he Girl Reserves, ninety hands in all , is a branch of the Y.W.C.A.; and it also works in co-operation with the Girl Reserves of Hammond High and Ham- mond Tech. I here has never been any monotony in the routine of the club s meetings, since group activities, cabinet meetings, and general meetings each take a turn every six weeks. During each meeting the business is kept shipshape, and the program is capably com- manded by the officers in charge. Some ol the activities of the Girl Reserves this past year were: movies on various sub- jects; their annual candle-light service; and a Japanese tea, at which the girls were enter- tained with a special program. I he Hammond Inter-club Council con- sists of six girls from each of the Girl Reserve groups of Hammond — Tech, Hammond High, and Clark. I his council meets once a month and decides on activities in which the three groups will participate together. I he Council has planned a several days trip to the Dunes for the week following the close of school. I his organization has already proved so successful, that we believe every girl wi II be able to command her way in life as well as the Girl Reserves commanded their way in the ship s affairs. I he officers in the Girl Reserves organiza- tion were: president, Barbara hiola; vice- president. Margaret Magelon; Secretary. Lucille Liesse; treasurer. Virginia Till. Miss Lange was again the sponsor, and the dif- ferent interest groups were sponsored by Miss Noetzel, Miss Iversen, Miss Pulskamp, and Mrs. Kraft.

JUNIOR RED CROSS No organization on board ship answers the call for help more readily than the Junior Red Cross. Although ours is but one part ol a huge organization, it has made itself lelt time alter time. Whenever the members ol the Junior Red Cross met, you could he sure some plot was being hatched lor the benefit ol those who were less fortunate than they. I hey felt that it is better to give than to receive, and they should be honored lor holding such an ideal, and lor all their work and sacrifices. At Christmas time the Junior Red Cross sought to spread good cheer by distributing many baskets of food to the poor. Hut they did their greatest service ol all when they heard the call of " S.O.S.” from the Ohio flood valley. When they heard this signal, they hove-to and collected $ 195 . 3 which they donated to the cause. I his year a first aid class was started, in- struction being given by Miss Sykes the school nurse. Now, the Junior Red Cross, through the graduates of this class, is able to render first aid in cases of emergency. I o all hands on the ship let it he known that the work of the Junior Red Cross has helped to build the fine reputation which George Rogers Clark has acquired. J he officers are: president, Nancy I run- nelf: vice-president, Wenzel Augustine; secretary, Elmer Jusko; treasurer, Wallace Smith; sponsor, Mrs. Agnes Kraft. [ 39 ] First row: Georgene Barber.

COMMERCIAL CLUB No other organization in the school gives one as litting a send-off into the commercial world as does the Commercial club. Since this region offers many opportunities for per- sons well trained in the commercial held, this club has been a great advantage to those who have entered it. Behind the organization of the Commer- cial club is a three-fold purpose. I he first purpose of the club is to (oster an interest in the business world and an understandii ig of the problems of those w ho enter it. Another purpose ol the club is to intro- duce the business concerns and commercial enterprises ol the community to the club members. I he best way to do this was to visit various business firms, in order to have a personal contact with them. One of the places visited was one we all know because of our countless contacts wi th it, the Bell I elephone Company. I he last purpose ol the club is to encour- age preparation for careers in business after graduation. ITie three-fold aim of the Comercial club has been realized in ihe mind ol each of its members, and because of this they can enter under lull sail the tide of the business world. I he officers ol the Commercial club are: Marie Rostin. president: Mary Dmitruck, vice-president: Irene I licko, secretary: Bessie Uhrin. treasurer: Miss Silliman, Miss Cough- lan, sponsors.

Ordinarily when one studies a foreign language he studies the language alone, and does not learn about the people Irani whom the language is taken. I he purpose of the branch club is to acquaint the members with FRANCAIS the life, customs, and history of the French people. During the club meetings the members played games, sang songs, and read stories in French. An innovation this year was the playing of French victrola records. Members of the club also presented the play La Femme Muette ( The Dumb Wife). We know that when these French stu- dents reach the ports of France they will be amply prepared to cope with the language. I ' irst row: Belly Caswell. Dorothy Gardner. Belly Smith, Janet Arner.

SAFETY PATROL George Rogers Clark School has always had a safety patrol, but as the school grew the grade school patrol became inefficient and it was soon realized that because of the range ol ages and sizes in the student body, older boys would be needed lor patrol duty. Subsequently at a meeting of the I acuity and representatives of the student body, the idea ol the High School Safety Patrol originated. Shortly after this meeting, the lirst liigh school safety patrol was organized. About thirty-six members were enlisted, and today it consists of thirty-two boys. I hey are re- quired to take patrol lime from the study halls, and in many cases this means giving up valuable time. I he schedule called for lour patrols of nine hoys each. From the first, the high school patrol proved itself to be a success and despite the frequent bad weather, the boys generally seemed to enjoy their work. Patrol duty was made even more attractive in view of the fact that a years satisfactory service would merit the boys a Clark “C.” I hese C s are blue with a traffic light emblem on them. The first letters were awarded about Christmas time and were greatly appreciated by every hoy who re- ceived one. To protect the patrol boys Irom exposure in bad weather, it was decided that raincoats and hats would be needed. Fifteen ol these were presented to (lie patrol by the faculty and student body on April 6 , 1937 . During the year the Safety Patrol has been entertained at ' banquets, big league hall games, and Iree movies. I he boys appreciate these pleasant rewards for their lai ihl ul service.

This club, made up ol fifty-two members under the direction o( its sponsor, Mrs. Admiral, held a meeting one I hursday alternoon of each month. At these meetings the programs were based on early Roman life, customs, religion, amuse- ments, wars, and language. I hese facts were usually acquainted to the students by reports and talks given by the club members, often the talks were illustrated by slides pertaining to the subject of the program. Occasionally the program consisted ol Latin games or vocabularly spell-downs of Latin words. I he program chairmen I or the year were Beatrice I Iruskovich, Dorothy Binder, and Elizabeth Oleksik.

BASKETBALL In basketball tbe Pioneers bad a very suc- cessful season, winning 16 out of 19 games. They defeated two major opponents twice for tbe first time. These were W hiting and Hammond lech. I he team also defeated Warren Central and Ben Davis of Indian- apolis. The Pioneers bowed to Washington, Emerson . and I lammond l ligh, who were all top-notch competitors. Led by Captain Kraly and under the supervision of Coach I aylor, the Pioneers used the fast break which netted them many of their points. The squad was made up ol eleven men for half the season, but Mike Kampo was lost at the end of the semester. Four ol the remaining ten boys arc seniors, leaving six “A” squad boys to form a nucleus for next year s team. I hose graduating seniors are Captain Fred Kraly. John Filipek, George lhnat, and E dward Davidson. I he six re- maining boys are captain-elect I ' red Stelow. Bill Burk. Gene Sherry, Wilbur Buerckhollz. John Kanocz, and Bill Schnell. Although the season was very good, the tournament was a disappointment. I be Pioneers, picked as a favorite team, lost to an inspired Hammond High quintet in the semi-finals. Coach Taylor would rather have a successful season than a tournament vic- tory, if only one of them was obtainable. I he B squad also had a very good season, winning 13 out of 16 games.

C. disbanded: and 1 d heard nary a word ol em since. I hen one day I dropped in at an employment agency lor old and disabled sailors and inquired ol Madalyn Bickham, the secretary, as to the whereabouts of our fellow sailors. She told me I was in luck, for one ship about to sail to parts unknown was captained by an old graybeard who was none other than our former mate, Eddie Demkovich. The old salt gave me a hearty welcome and suggested that 1 ship on the whaler with him for a three month voyage. Adventure called, and 1 had a ready answer! Fhe first twenty days of the voyage were ideal. We had f air weather and smooth sailing; and no one could have asked for better lood than that which our chief cook. James I Ilisny, prepared for us. Finally we docked at port Wavy Waters in the South Sea Islands. Here we met two of the most .renowned deep sea divers, Herbert Goran- son and I Jcrbert Weiner. I hey don t use suits, they merely hold their breath. Walking along the beach of the coral islands one day, we were surprised to find Irene Hicko and Mary Dmitruck each teach- ing an octopus to type. I heir only diffi- culty was supplying paper fast enough for the eight-armed creatures. We were told that Evelyn I luddlestun was in the shark- taming business, and that George Saliga and Frank argo had captured a tribe of the natives and converted them to cannibals. On another small island we saw a large sign which read: Lucille Sammons, Queen ol the Island ol Himalapoochee Is Out for Lunch. Please Wait. However, we could not await the return of the cjueen, for our attention was irresistibly drawn to a group ol mermaids, Sonia Modin, Agnes Kamin- sky, Mary Hajdule, and Janet Sweezey. I hey really work as chorus girls at the Codfish Ball which is sponsored every three months by Joe Wright. As we listened, entranced, to the songs of the mermaids, we saw lar out in the ocean three whales; and, riding majestically on the backs of the whales, were Leora Widinger, Marie Rostin, and Betty Pearce. A fourth whale was seen in the distance and as it drew nearer we ob- served that it was quite old and was being towed by Rudolph Kapitan. Alter he had rested from his exertions, Rudy told us that Marjory Righter had be- come a great fencer and had defeated every swordfish in the Pacific. Furthermore, he said that Lodi Navta, Steve Novotny and Leonard Novak were operating the 1 rans- Island Airways, employing lilty flying fish. w e were not at all surprised to learn that many ol our old crew had turned out to be experimental geniuses. For example, Nor- man Isaacs collects lamps from lampreys. Elmer Jusko and Dorothy Kamen catch electric eels and store the electricity in the wet cells in the Waterville jail which is con- trolled by Wilbur E ans. Milton I Imurovich and John Kitchen are still trying to extract the gold Irom Lhe gold fish. I hey have a crew ol Adolph Jakubielski, Charles Kam- po, Al Kasperan, and Mary Dihenes who capture the fish by sprinkling salt on their tails. Among others who have distinguished themselves, we find Strong Man Milton Rusina who pulls the tides in; and his wife, Florence Schnoor, who pushes them out. We might note also that Norecn Moore manages and directs all the star-fishes in HoII ' wood. At the end ol our voyage Captain Dem- Kovich and I concluded that our seafaring days had at last run their course; so we in- vested our small savings in a chowder house down on the water front. Here we planned to spend the rest of our days dishing out clam chowder to hungry sailors. — Ed Davidson 57 [ 48 ] n tuue I lie Iasi cruise of ihc year brought I lie Ensigns ( Seniors ) their final training in navigation, arid with it. their last opportunity to distinguish them- selves aboard the training ship George Rogers ( lark. I his they did in the fashion of true seamen: and wh en the last trick was over, the Ensigns came ashore with many pleasant memories, un l the knowledge that they had lived up to the traditions of the sea: courage, and the faithful performance o f duty. llMcjllA Edward Davidson I ' red Kraly Madalyn Birlcham Ludmilia Yallco President V ice-president Secretary Treasurer SENIOR CLASS In the fall of 1936 , the Ensigns set sail with three full years of experience behind them. Eagerly, they ordered the midshipmen to the hard tasks of the voyage, as they had once been commanded. I his class has been well represented in athletics, dramatics, the honor roll, and the musical organizations during its lour years ol cruising on the G. R. C. Captain Mike K ampo and Lhe football squad have recorded the best season in Clark s history. Likewise, the basketball team headed by captain Fred Kraly report their most successful season. Ihree members of the senior class were on the varsity debate squad. Steve Novotny received a Degree of Excellence. ; while Noreen Moore and Dorothy Stross received Degrees of I lonor. I hey all are members ol the National forensic League. I his class was represented by nine mem- bers in the band. Betty Pearce was recom- mended to the national solo contest from the I ndiana stale contest. Ludmilia Valko was chosen D. A. R representative because of her line spirit ol citizenship in school. She is also the va Icdic- torian of this year s senior class. Edward Davidson is salutatorian. I welve seniors be- sides these two were elected members of the National I lonor Society. I he seniors opened their whirl of social activities with a Diploma Dance. Being the lirst dance of the voyage it was a huge success. I he next festivity they sponsored was the Snowball Dance, given during Christmas vacation. I he last dance ever to be sponsored by the class of 37 was the Spring frolic. I his climaxed an enjoy- able season ol social activities. I he senior play, I he Goose Hangs I ligh, starring Noreen Moore and Wenzel Augustian, was a success Irom all points of view. I he Ensigns now prepare to leave the ship as lull fledged officers. May they lace the demands ol life with the same readiness and courage which has characterized their four- year cruise aboard the G. R. C. MIRIAM ANTILLA - Our best girl athlete.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY A new step in the progress of George Rogers Clark School was the organization this year of a chapter of the National I lonor Society. 1 he object ol this society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the develop- ment of character. It is considered a mark of distinction to be elected to this organization since its member- ship includes honor students from all parts of the United States. Membership in our chapter ol the National Honor Society is based on four things; namely, scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Juniors or Seniors eligible lor membership must stand in the first third ol their respective classes, in scholarship. All of the students elected to this society have at some lime held an office in a high school class or club. 1 hey have rendered service by their willing participation in the many activi ties which our school provides. They have shown themselves, beyond a doubt, to be ol worthy character. I o the fourteen seniors and the five juniors who are now members of the National Honor Society we say: ‘Hats off! We re proud of you.” f59] Steve Gabor. Dorothy Stress, Dorothy Charlotte Powell. larr. Miss Schad, Coach. Ncrcen Moore, Steve Novotny. Mary DEBATE Resolved that all electrical utilities should he governmentally owned and oper- ated. The six hearty spokesmen of the George Rogers C lark debate squad deserve much credit upon the completion of a successful season of debate. 1 o be a debater one needs more than a good voice. The ability to think clearly and discover and organize important points is essential. After a course in public speaking in which the student is taught to prepare and deliver speeches in an excellent manner. he is ready for the course in debate. An entire semester is devoted to the studying of debate tactics and the seeking of information on the question. Scores of magazines and books are read before the important material is assembled and organized in rebuttle boxes. I he student is then given the opportunity to show his ability in the several practise debates that are held before the actual season begins. Clarks debate teams bave won a total of thirty-three debates out ol forty-four that they have participated in this season. In the Indiana Slate League. Clark won the district contest by defeating Washing- ton. Roosevelt, and I lammond High Schools. They succeeded in getting second place in the Chicago League while Proviso High School came out in lirst place. I he latter lost just one debate throughout the whole season, and that was to Clark. I ' or the lirst time Clark won both the affirmative and the negative debates I rom New I rier High School. 1 he two debates C lark lost in the Chicago League were to two new schools, Morgan Park Military Academy and Main I ownship 1 ligh Sell ool; these were not mem- bers ol the league last year. As a further venture, C lark participated in the annual Elkhart tournament for schools in northern Indiana and won four out of six debates, defeating such teams as Napanee, Central ol South Bend, Mentone, and Columbia City, the recent winners of the state debate title. It was the first year ol debate lor all the members of both the affirmative and negative teams; and their experience has surely pre- pared them for future conquests. [ 60 ] Director.

C. without a hand, lo the strains ol its stirring music we pep up our teams, cele- brate our victories, and entertain our friends. It may he said that this has been the most successful season in the history ol our school band. Under the inspired leadership of the director, Mr. Nilo 1 lovey, our hand won the district contest held at La Porte, taking first division with two other prominent high schools. A week later they repeated this feat, coming through stiff competition to tie for the honor of State Champions with two other schools, W hiting and Columbia City. I he band gave two splendid concerts, one in the fall and one in the spring. At the latter, the members appeared lor the lirst time in their new uniforms before an ap- preciative audience, many of whom had contributed generously toward the uniforms. Tbe band also entertained at a Kiwanis Club luncheon early in April. We congratulate the band for all the honors they have bestowed upon our school; and may they look forward to brilliant sea- sons in tbe future. [ 61 ] G. A. C.

But your hair is not gray in the least; And with all your experience and wisdom 1 think Your brow should be lurrowed and creased. In my youth, the grave Senior replied to the boy, I was fully as pesky as you; My elders, the Seniors. I strove to annoy As you are now trying to do. But didn t they love it? the Freshie returned, Your answer — 1 m eager to hear it — Can they help (when their pep into languor has turned) But admire our exuberance of spirit? You will age, said the sage, and no doubt you will find When a man is a full seventeen F ' le must have, to accompany his adult mind, A stately and dignified mein. I his may all be true,’ said the younger in doubt. But there s one thing I d like to be told — Why, when you and the gang are out whooping about. Do you act like a mere ten year old? I here is something, the Senior replied in a huff, I hat we Seniors have learned through the years. It’s simply, my child, that enough is enough.’ And he gave him a box on the ears. Helen E. Eddy THE PILOT Staunchly he stands at the pilot wheel. Steering his sturdy bark 0 ver the rolling, surging sea. Fearless in storni and dark. Happy is he in the wind and rain As he lollows his guiding star. Confident he will soon attain I he height, his goal alar. Youth is the happy pilot s name As he starts his voyage far — 1 he goal he sees ahead is Fame, Ambition is his star. Helen E.
