It is. now,Jt?i, IF © ® © 53 313 CStfl f We, the members of the senior class, in order to commemorate the men who have upheld the Consti- tution of these United States, in the Revolution and since, in field and forum, here and throughout the world, do hereby dedicate this book. Our Constitution, which is American to the core, has served with very few amendments an ever- growing nation for a century and a half; and stands today a fitting monument, alike to the master build- ers who designed it, and to the colonial institutions out of ivhich it ivas molded. i I ] C A OUR SCHOOL HOME As we, the members of the graduating class of ’38, look back over the years spent at George Rogers Clark, strange sensations creep over us. We have come to the end of countless pleasant days spent in this lovely school. No longer will we enter its portals each school day to meet our old friends and make new acquaintances. No longer will we enjoy the pleasure of being students of this beloved school. f- When we begin to realize this, those strange sensations seem to gather and lodge in our throats. We count our last precious days which have dwindled down to hours, hoping they will pass slowly. Our only consolation is that we may bring all possible honor to our school, for all the success that we may obtain must be credited to these, our happiest and most memorable years at George Rogers Clark. The highest court in America is the Supreme Court. It was created by the first Congress and was given the power to nullify laws if in conflict with the Constitution. Congress definitely established the Supreme Court as the final arbiter in conflicts between the states and federal government. The first Su- preme Court consisted of five associate justices and one Chief Justice. To John Jay belongs the honor of being the first Chief Justice. The Judicial Department of the federal government is made up chiefly of two bodies; the Supreme Court, passing final and supreme judgment upon the constitutionality of acts concerning the rights of persons and rights of property; and the ten Circuit Courts in which final judgment is passed concerning cases which involve no question of constitutionality. So it is in school — the Board of Education passes final judgment on everything regarding the rights of faculty members, stu- dents, and the school’s property. The Student Council passes judgment only on minor incidents pertaining to the student body itself. Seated : Mr. Lynch, attorney, Mr. Caldwell, superintendent of schools, Mr. Sold Standing: Mr. McKay, Mr. Dedelow, Dr. MeVey, Mr. Mason. BOARD OF EDUCATION Acting as a Supreme Court in rendering significant decisions, Hammond’s Board of Education has been very important throughout the past year. Five judges — Mr. Claude C. Sohl, Mr. Fred W. Dedelow, Dr. Clarence A. MeVey, Mr. Clarence A. Mason, and Mr. Elmer Mc- Kay, meet in sessions to discuss scholastic problems. A decision most vital to George Rogers Clark was that one which definitely settled the perplexing problem of an auditorium. It has been through the untiring efforts of this body of men that Clark will be able to realize its ambition for a new addition. Superintendent L. L. Caldwell, as Chief Justice of this Court, is directly connected with all decisions made, and has entered whole- heartedly into the work of this school year. It is with great sincerity that we wish to extend our appreciation to these men for their competent leadership and cooperation in behalf of George Rogers Clark School.

STUDENT COUNCIL Acting as the circuit court of our government make-up, the Student Council was given the difficult task of helping to settle the controversies and problems which arose within the school. During the year of 1937-38 the society was divided into four committees. The Assembly Committee arranged and guided the assembly programs. The Locker Committee checked on all lockers that were care- lessly left open and, by imposing a five-cent fine, warned their owners to keep them safely locked. The Safety Committee made and enforced the bicycle, traffic, and fire regulations. The Magnavox Committee took charge of the school’s newest asset, a victrola which provides music for club entertainments. The Council also has charge of the letter fund and the purchasing and awarding of athletic and scholarship awards. This year they pro- vided for the purchase of the microphone for the Magnavox. The officers are: James Galles, president; Gene Sherry, vice- president; Mary Kennedy, secretary; Ted Arch, treasurer. The most important elective office in the world is that of President of the United States. When the people looked for a person to hold this office for the first time, all eyes turned toward George Washington, the great chieftain who had led armies to victory, and who had shown him- self a great statesman as well as a soldier. iffiCOTWI ©lilMlTrfllKH The Executive Department of the federal government is com- prised of the President and his Cabinet. Because it is physically impossible for the President to supervise and direct more than one mil- lion persons engaged in the civil and military duties of executive and administrative work, he is aided by his cabinet members who act as his chief lieutenants. Likewise in school, because our principal is unable to direct and supervise every student in his scholastic work and extra activities, he is aided by the faculty. ( 13 ) FACULTY Th roughout the school year of 1937- ’38, our principal, Mr. R. B. Miller, act- ing as Chief Execu- tive, has capably su- pervised the entire governmental s t a ff in George Rogers Clark School, and un- der this capable supe r v i s i o n many outstanding accom- plishments have been added. The cabinet — the members of our faculty — served as able assistants to Mr. Miller in rendering valuable services, not only as teachers, but also as spon- sors of classes and various extra-curricular activities. Just as each cabinet member is the head of his own specific division of the gov- ernment, so in our school, each teacher is the sponsor of a club or class, besides being a co- worker in a certain department of the school — Arts, Science, English, Languages, or Math- ematics. There are thirty-seven cabinet members in the junior and senior high schools, and all have willingly cooperated with the students to bring to a close this happy and successful year. Under the competent leadership of this group of advisers, many of the ambitions of our students have been auspiciously attained, and many of Clark’s fondest hopes realized. MRS.

The Con- stitution was merely an outline of government. To the First Congress fell the task of clothing this skele- ton with flesh and blood and giv- ing to it the breath of life. The Legislative Department of the federal government, made up of the Senate and the House of Representatives, is the law making body of the land. There are many times, however, when a law requires the vote of the people before any action can be taken on it. This is espe- cially true of amendments. In much the same manner, we find in school that although the greater part of the membership in the different clubs and organizations is usually composed of the seniors and juniors, no action can be taken on laws pertaining to the school without including the vote of the sopho- mores and freshmen. ( 17 ) SENIOR CLASS " The Nation that has the schools has the future — Bismarck. America ' s educational system, the greatest in the world, has as its goal the education of every American. The senior class of ’)8 is a successful step toward this goal. While to some students it ivill he the last formal educa- tion before going out into the world, to others it is only a stepping stone to a higher education. All, however, bavlt learned how to better themselves both physically and mentally. ... , , . JL . The main purpose of their education has been not only to prepare for future life but to live, durit all work or all play, a Uf iif wpicp f iei dered, and hard wp JC e ifoyed. The modern school has outgre varied curricm atfj £f[ sfajetts froi lucation, a life which is not responsibilities shoul- j c m ' today presents a f eliding upon his interests, mqX ZAppse t t T jjH lift work to a great extent by his choice of subjects. Many students have decided to become journalists because of their interest in the high school course in journalism. Courses in science have paved the way for the study of medicine, nursing, and dietetics. Happy experiences in chorus, band, and orchestra have en- couraged other students to go on with music as their life ivork. Seated: Virginia Till, V. Pres.; Miss Booth, sponsor; Jeanne Vfag- oner, Sec. Standing: Mary Charlotte Powell, Treas.; Steve Gabor, Pres. ( 18 ) Aside from these varied courses, the present day school has made an- other improvement over the old. This improvement has been the addition of extra curricular activities. These may exist in several forms. They may be clubs formed by students interested in the same subject, or they may be teams that compete with the teams of other schools. The result of these ac- tivities is that the students are able to put into practice the principles and procedures they have learned in curricular activities. The athletic teams are an out-growth of physical education courses, debate is one of the activ- ities of public speaking classes, the ' TTchool paper and the year book are closely connected with journalism and-uither English courses. The band has resulted because of the desire their music studies, students outside ils to make something out of s some means of giving A second re uft has been thf hai ning of Hpe i i p Ktafb ;e of cooperation in order to sucfceld ji ' .o bfZfikifiig la£y)r]es(ilf whil thirds result has been the teaching " t Ftp It is no wonder then that the standards, not only in scholarship but in other activities, have been high. The class of ’3 8 is graduated with the feeling that it has upheld these standards and has, in some instances, helped to raise them. It leaves the school with the hope that on-coming classes will set even higher standards of achievement.

( 28 ) SENIOR PROM A NEW LIFE The winter has gone, But leaves no sear upon my heart; For with the spring have come New buds of life to start. Each tiny shoot for freedom yearns , As slowly pushing through the sod; It breathes the freshness of the air, And lifts its lowly head to God. For it, like we, must seek the faith of Flint whose strength must lead us on. To face each strain of storm and wind; And labor still when hope seems gone. —HELEN JEANNE BEAUB1EN ( 29 ) Allan Bell, Treasurer; Billie Vater, Vice-president; Betty Lou Frecburg, President; Janet Arncr, Secretary; Miss McAtec, Sponsor. JUNIOR CLASS " Knowledge is power”. — De Haeresibus Because of his knowledge, man has been able to build such struc- tures as the Golden Gate Bridge and Boulder Dam, conquer disease, and make multitudes of other achievements which have made better living conditions possible. It is because of his knowledge that man has been able to harness the forces of nature to work for him. To keep progress- ing, the youth of today must be educated in order that they may be able to take their place in the world tomorrow. The juniors are completing a third year in their high school stage of education. During the last three years they have done a fine job in everything they have undertaken. They have taken a prominent part in the field of sports, helping to make the athletic season a successful one. Five juniors were elected to the National Honor Society; while band, dramatics, and debate all have profited by their participation. If this is a sample of what they can and will do, their senior year promises to be a bigger and more successful one.

JUNIOR CLASS PLAY This spring the junior class chose for its annual production, Re- mote Control,” a play based on the happenings in a radia station. The cast consisted of Bob Williams as Walter, the announcer; Drew Miller, Ralph, the control room operator; Allen Bell, Bert, the adver- tising manager; and Roger Shaeffer, Charlie, the reporter. The three detectives wer e: Mark Beaubien, playing the part of Moran; Harold Iverson, the part of Divine; and Andrew Lakatos, that of Burke. Berry Bcrcaw portrayed Dr. Workman, the spiritualist; Pete, Ld, and Joe, members of the holdup gang, were played by Edward Drew, James Groat, and Donald Jansen. Albert Kessler was Mr. Oakwood, the hotel manager; and Marshall Biesen was Murray, the gym instructor. Helen, the office girl in the studio, was played by Mary Kennedy; Eleanor Dem- long was Dorothy, a tap dancer; and Mary Moser was Ruth, the pianist of the studio. Members of the Junior League who furnished the entertainment of the studio in the way of songs and exciting incidents were: Dorothy Binder as Agnes; Shirley Shaeffer as Mae; Dorothy Gardner as June; Janet Arner as Betty; Joanna Ourant as Beatrice; and Lillian Fedorko as Lottie. The mystery, humor, and romance of this exciting episode in a radio station brought murmurs of approval and interest from an ap- preciative audience.

SOPHOMORE CLASS " If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.” — Margaret Fuller. Today, the total number of students attending elementary and high schools exceeds thirty million. It is no wonder, then, that America has made, and is still making, such great progress in the world as a nation. The sophomores are at the half-way mark of their high school education. Despite the fact that they are still underclassmen, several have taken part in varsity activities and have held their own with the upperclassmen. Aside from these members, the class as a whole has always been ready to step in and do its part when necessary. Scholar- ship has not been neglected, as indicated by the number of sophomores on the Honor Roll. With such a fine start in their work, only one thing can be expect- ed from the class in the next two years; namely, success in all their undertakings.

SOPHOMORE CLASS This year the sophomore class enjoyed a very successful season in athletics, band, and speech. Starting the season, football was the first form of athletics to which the sophomores responded so enthusiastically. In this sport Frank Shi- mala won a major letter. The basketball teams were also strongly supported by the sopho- mores. In this sport Mike Valiska won a major letter. He also won the ' C” Clulj award for making the most free throws during the season. This spring the sophomore class was well represented on the track team. The major letter winners in this sport were Frank Shimala and Mike Valiska. Seymour Kaplan won his major letter in tennis, and Mike Valiska won a major letter in cross-country. The sophomores were well represented in the band, and several of them also participated in debate. The important night of the year for the sophomores was Hallowe’en when they staged their annual dance. The large crowd who attended enjoyed dancing to the music of Bill Rutledge’s orchestra.

FRESHMAN CLASS " Knowledge is essential to conquest — Anne Besant. Any problem, whether faced by a nation, individual or groups of individuals, can be solved only with sufficient knowledge. The mem- bers of the freshman class are beginning four years of study which will give them a foundation for this knowledge. The freshman year of a student is important because it is during this time that he decides what he is going to do during the next three years of his education. Since the freshmen are the future juniors and seniors, it is important to note the activities of the class. From all indications, this year’s freshman class shows a wealth of material for all activities, and we are looking forward to the time when they will add to Clark’s conquests, both in scholarship and extra-cur- ricular activities. 0 «) First Row: Anne Dudzik, Viola Cook, Jane Ellen Braley, Roma Biedron, Geraldine Boda, Helen Bernacky, Charlotte Boncela, Frances Banas, Mary Adams, Dolores Antkowiak, Sophie Bugajski.

( 38 ) " Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes.” This was the famous order given by Colonel Prescott at the Battle of Bunker Mill. Although the British won this battle, the moral victory lay whol- ly with the Americans. " Bunker Hill” became a rallying cry of the patriots in every contest of the war. FEDERAL COMMISSIONS In the United States government there are various departments, each under the supervision of a certain member of the cabinet. In our school, clubs and athletics correspond to these subdivisions, the members of the faculty acting as supervisee. The student membership willingly does the work in these divisions, engaging in interesting activities which tend toward the betterment of our school. Firs .

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Because their sagacity, character, statesmanship, and patriotism have been tried, judged, and proved worthy of our confidence, these students have been chosen as our representatives in a great national or- ganization. As members of the National Honor Society, these, our delegates, are ranked with honor students from all over the United States. Juniors and seniors who rank in the first third of their class are eligible for nominataion in the National Honor Society. The election of members is based on four things: scholarship, leadership, character, and spirit of service. The object of the society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character. We stand at attention and offer a salute to the organization which has afforded so much encouragement to the students. It brings to mind this adage: " Sow a character ; reap a destiny.” ( 42 ) First Row: Joan Brown, Patsy Malloy, Betty Lou Freeburg, Norma Buell, Anne Valko, Rose Dubeck, Doris Mae Plumchuck, Miss Sykes, Bonnie Weir, Dorothea Smith, Martha Labda, Jeanne M.

JUNIOR RED CROSS One of the most beneficial organizations in the way of good works is the Junior Red Cross. Deriving its powers from the good will and cooperation of the student body the club has done much to promote the general welfare of the school. It is governed by a council consisting of two representatives from each home room. As a branch of the Senior Red Cross, the work of the organization is concerned chiefly with the immediate needs of the school and com- munity in matters of health, prevention of disease, medical care, and general relief work. The students rallied to the cause when a proclamation was issued to call in all available financial and material aid in filling Thanksgiving baskets. Its diplomat, Betty Lou Freeburg, who attended the Indianapolis convention, brought back many new measures to be considered and acted upon. The motto of this assemblage is " I Serve”. The officers arc: Nancy Trunnell, president; Betty Lou Freeburg, vice-president; Alycc Joyce, secretary; Steve Gabor, treasurer; Miss Sykes, sponsor; Miss Silliman, co-sponsor.

" POWDER HORN” STAFF With competent hands the " Powder Horn” staff took up the task of recording the activities and work accomplished for the school year of 1937-’38. Pursuant with the decisio n that the Constitution of the United States was to be used as their theme, the members of the staff searched histories, biographies, source books, and almanacs for ideas and sug- gestions. When the work was well launched, drafts emerged which were a credit to their efforts. Gradually the book took form and was shaped. At long last the epochal document was ready to be sub- mitted to the student body.

" PIONEER NEWS” STAFF Supplanting the town-crier and court journals of yester-year, the " Pioneer News” is a modern, impartial medium through which the stu- dent body may voice its opinions and be informed. This year the weekly publication made its appearance in a vastly improved form. A three-column spread replaced the two columns of previous years. New feature material, under the headings of " They Say ” , " We Say”, and " Rumblings ”, was added. The staff entered into a new field of news reporting this year. Every Friday morning one of its commentators broadcasted a summary of the news of the week over station W. W. A. E. In perfect accord and harmony, and with the cooperation of the journalism classes, the staff completed a year of splendid work. They adjourned with well wishes to the new staff. May diligence and effort prevail, and a bigger and better publication result.

DEBATE The qualities of a good debater include: accuracy, good speech, ability to analyze the question, and ability to " think on your feet.” The members of our debate squad are proficient in all these traits. Early in September they began preparing for the debate season by reading and collecting material on their subject, and through rebuttal practice and practice debates. " B " Squad: Albert Kessler, Betty Lou Freeburg, Bob Williams, Miss Schad, Mary Kennedy, Bill White, Dorothy Binder. DEBATE " B” SQUAD ( 46 ) " Resolved that the several states should adopt a unicameral system of legislation” was the question of the Indiana State League debates this year. Our squad seemed destined to repeat last year’s victory and be- come the district winners, but they were defeated by the Ham- mond High teams with which they were tied, having won three out of four debates. The team traveled over 1,000 miles to participate in debates this year. In the annual Elkhart tournament the Clark teams added seven of the twelve debates that they entered to their list of victories. In the National Forensic League tournament held at Purdue University the team was defeated in the third of the five rounds. Of the thirty-three debates in which they have participated, the affirmative team won sixteen, lost twelve, and five were no-decision de- bates. Of the thirty-four debates in which the negative team partici- pated, twenty-three were won, six were lost, and five were no-decision debates. We are proud of the achievements of our debate squad. Present indications show that there is a bright future for Clark in the field of debate, for interest has grown to a point where more than twenty stu- dents are out for this activity. This includes an " A” and " B” squad and a Junior Debate Club. Sitting: Viola Fretts, Alice Oberniillcr, Harriet Whyte, Barbara Bercaw, Lillian Fedorko.

GIRL RESERVES The Girl Reserves is a union of two factions, the Social Service group and the Charm and Dramatic group. The two groups act inde- pendently and carry on their own activities but combine forces to carry on business transactions and major activities. The club is a branch of the Y. W. C. A. and is affiliated with the organizations of Hammond High and Hammond Tech. An Inter- Club Council, consisting of six representatives from each school, meets every month to plan joint activities. The purpose of the club is to prepare the girls for their social responsibilities and to help them in the development of their personality and character. Their motto is " To Face Life Squarely their purpose, " To Find and Give the Best.” The inter-club meetings were divided among the three Hammond schools. In the fall, an impressive initiation service was held in the Clark gymnasium at which new members from the three schools lighted their tiny candles at the ever-glowing Girl Reserve flame and were wel- comed into the Circle of Light. At Christmas time the girls went caroling in down-town Hammond and were entertained at the Y. W. C. A. as guests of the Hammond Tech club. In the spring the organi- zations were entertained by the Hammond High club at an evening dance to which the boys’ clubs of the schools were invited.

GIRL RESERVES Within our own organization, the Social Service group prepared Thanksgiving and Easter baskets for the orphans and gave a Christmas party for them at the Carmelite home. The Charm and Dramatic group sponsored several excellent demonstrations on make-up, hair styl- ing, and clothing for the instruction of the girls, and presented a unique play for the Christmas program. Some of the outstanding programs of the year were: a talk on the relation of the Girl Reserves to the Y. W. C. A. by Mrs. Mitchell, Chair- man of the Board of Directors of the Y. W. C. A.; an interesting review of two current books by Miss Yocham, former club sponsor; an amateur hour, in which the talented members of the club participated; and a taffy-pull that was conducted, amid much gaiety, in the cooking laboratory.

HI-Y The knowledge that a Hi-Y club was to be organized at Clark this year was received with great jubilation. With vigor and enthusiasm, the boys enlisted as members of the organization. The initiation service, rendered by the Hammond High Hi-Y club, made them charter mem- bers of the national organization. The club is affiliated with the Y. M. C. A. Its purpose is, " To cre- ate, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of character Although this was its first year of active duty, the club completed an interesting outline of activities which included: sending seven dele- gates to the Older Boys Conference in Peru, Indiana; presenting Miss Geraldine Westaby, well known speaker, in assembly; sponsoring a box social; and sending a representative to the National Hi-Y Conference.

SAFETY PATROL (THE ARMY OR DEFENSE CORPS) Just as a soldier wears the uniform of the country he protects, so the patrol boy wears the white belt and blue patrol letter which mark him as a soldier in the army of safety. Throughout the year, in good weather and in bad, the patrol boys were always on duty. They protected the student body from danger- ous automobile traffic at intersections and did much to develop a safety consciousness among the students. Many boys earned their patrol letters this year. To merit this award a boy must serve a full year in active patrol duty or one-half year of double duty. Also, in recognition of their faithful service, they were entertained at shows, big league baseball games, and parties. Referring to the work accomplished during the year, their chief, Mr. Mullins said, " We feel we have given fair protection at corners. We also feel that some boys are gaining experience in responsibility and leadership.” ( 51 ) SECOND YEAR CLUB First Rou : Edith Hicks, Mac Marie Winberg, Doris Mac Plumchuck, Evelyn Eddy, Millieent Evan, Elizabeth Oleksik, Dorothy Schaefer.

LATIN CLUBS The Latin Clubs were formed to increase interest in the history, the mythology, and the culture of ancient Rome; to stimulate interest in the Latin language; and to vary class room procedure by creating a more friendly and informal atmosphere. During the meetings, reports, plays, and illustrated talks were presented to the club, and games and contests were conducted. This year the first year clubs collected material for mythology and allusion scrap-books. The second year club prepared flashcards for use in vocabulary contests.

LES CERCLES FRANCAIS Potential diplomats may be found in the French clubs. Composed of the first and second year French classes, the organization is divided into three groups, two first year groups and a second year group. The purpose of the club is to aid in the study of the French language by stimulating interest in French social life, history, and customs. " La Balle Francais”, the dance sponsored by the French club this year, was one of the gayest affairs of the social season. The colorful Parisian setting put everyone in a festive mood. Other legislation pass- ed by the club provided for a trip to Chicago to see a French show. Under the direction of Miss Hayes, the clubs have done much to advance the study of the French language and arouse interest among the students. Proof of that was the fact that the membership of the clubs thi s year was larger than it has ever been in any previous years.

POETRY CLUB Artists of the Quill are these, and justly proud are they of their fine collection of original poems, " First Flight”. Under the skillful guidance of Miss Lambert the members of the Poetry Club have developed a fine understanding and a sincere appre- ciation for poetry. During the first semester of the year emphasis was placed upon the enjoyment of poetry. During the second semester the members turned their attention to the oral interpretation and writing of poetry. • • To guide them in their discussion, the program committee pre- pared, for the members of the club, a booklet which contained the topic, the date, and the leader of each meeting. Some of the topics were: " Poems of Childhood”, " Thanksgiving Poems”, " Ballads of Sir Walter Scott and Rudyard Kipling”, " Poetry and Music of Christmas”, " Choric Recitation”, and " Modern Poets”. In the frontispiece of the program booklet the committee inscribed this verse: " The harp at Nature’s advent strung Has never ceased to play; The songs the stars of morning sung Have never died away.” — John Greenlcaf Whittier.

DRAMATIC CLUB Interest and enthusiasm high-lighted every session of the Dramatic Club this year. The organization helped to crystalize many a secret ambition by giving the students a chance to appear in amateur the- atricals. Under the supervision of Miss Schad, the club did much to further its purpose, which is to sponsor interest in dramatics and to enlarge the field so that everyone interested can participate. During the course of the year, this group presented several plays, among which were: " So You’re Going to Paris?”, " The Right Answer”, and the well-known " Bird’s Christmas Carol.” All who saw the club’s presentations agreed that the members were worthy of the names " ac- tors” and " actresses.” Officers are: President, Albert Ploppe; vice-president, Bob Wil- liams; secretary, Dorothy Gardner; treasurer, Anne Valko; program chairman, Drew Miller.

GIRLS’ CHORUS We propose a salute to the Girls’ Chorus for the perfection they have achieved this year in their serious study of voice technique. Composed of girls who are genuinely interested in music, they have worked hard to make themselves the group of perfectly blended voices that they are. Three times a week the music room rang with selections ranging from light operatic arias to popular selections from musical shows, as Miss Ferris guided the girls in the development of their musical talents. At Christmas time the girls delighted holiday shoppers as they caroled in one of the large department stores. In spring they partici- pated in the annual Hammond All-City Music Festival.

In 1936 the band won first division in the district and state contests. In 1937 they tied for the honor of " State Champions” with two other schools and won plaques at the Lion’s convention in Chicago. This year the band again received a first division rating in both the state and the district contests. In the district contest, which was held in Plymouth, Indiana, they were the only band in their division to receive a superior rating. Clark has several soloists who have won district and state honors and also has two national champions; Gene Sherry, first division national French horn soloist, and Dick Martinson, first division bass horn soloist. This year, in addition to their annual fall and spring concerts, the band played a concert at Edison High School, participated in a gala musical program at the new Civic Center in Hammond, and took part in the Hammond All-City Musical Festival. May all their active seasons be as successful. ( 59 ) First Rou : Doris Dvorsack, Lillian Fcdorko, Dorothy Schaefer, Beatrice Hruskovich, Betty Lou Freeburg, Arlene Hcnrikson, Mary Kennedy.

BIO-CHEM CLUB Ben Franklin, scientist and inventor, would have enjoyed attend- ing a session of the Bio-Chem club. He would have appreciated the type of work carried on at its conventions. He would have commended highly its purpose — to help the students of our school to have a better understanding and appreciation of the importance of science in modern life. When the Bio-Chem club convened this year, it was noted with much gratification that a large majority of those present were new dele- gates from the biology and chemistry classes. Also present were those who had just recently become interested in the type of business trans- acted at the club’s convention. Prompt and emphatic action on the part of the program com- mittee provided an interesting outline of activities which included the annual banquet given as a welcome to new members, and a trip to the Lever Brothers’ soap factory, as well as many interesting talks and dem- onstrations given by the chemists and biologists of the club. This year’s convention was adjourned with a feeling of work well done. May many a successful career result from this stimulant of scien- tific interest. Officers are: Drew Miller, president; Mary Powell, vice-president; Nancy Trunnell, secretary; Joan Isberg, treasurer.

When that call flashes over the short waves there is sure to be an answer. It is the call of the Clark Radio Club. The Radio Club is an association of radio amateurs formed for the promotion of interest in amateur radio communication and experi- mentation. This year, under the guidance of Mr. Wilkinson, the boys con- centrated on learning the International Code and worked for their amateur radio operators’ licenses. Their president, Daryl Fraley, suc- ceeded in obtaining his license and call letters. The club is of great benefit to the student who is interested in radio, as it gives him a chance to gain practical experience and helps to increase his interest in a vocational field. We hope that Clark con- tinues to build up this reservoir of trained operators and technicians for the future. The officers are: Daryl Fraley, president; Dick Jones, secretary- treasurer; Mr. Wilkinson, sponsor.

G. A. C. The Girls’ Athletic Club gives the girls a chance to earn a major letter in their high school career. They are able to earn letters by a point system. T ?o points are given for each hour that is spent on any sport. For a total of 300 points a small " C” is given; for 600, a G. A. C. mono- gram; and for 1000 points a large blue " C”. Tournaments in basket- ball, baseball, tennis and volleyball are held throughout the year in which the girls receive fifteen points for each match in which they play. If a girl makes a varsity team, she receives 50 points. The highest award that can be obtained in the G. A. C. is a large white " C” for 1500 points. The three girls to obtain the award this year were Marietta Sparks, Lois Goerg, and Marion Hoppe.

GIRLS’ SPORTS This year tennis was the most popular sport. More girls come out for the tennis tournament at the beginning of the year than ever before. The girls played their matches as soon as possible, and each girl enjoyed herself greatly. Volley ball was second in popularity among the G. A. C. girls. One night a week they had the gym in which they played volley ball. So many girls came out for this sport that it was rather difficult to pick a varsity team. Some of the girls chosen to be on the varsity were Billie Vater, Marian Hoppe, Mildred Zugel, Dolores Keister, Mary Adams, Mildred Anthony and Ernestine Pozo. More girls came out for basketball this year than last. This was the first time that they enjoyed playing basketball after school under girls’ rules. Mary C.

It is composed of boys who have won major letters in some form of athletics. Under the sponsorship of Coach Taylor, this club has fostered many worthwhile projects. The club donated a blanket for use in foot- ball and basketball games, and sponsored the ' Ins-and-Outs basketball game in order to raise money for track equipment. Annually the club presents the ' C” Club trophy to the best all- around athlete. Last year awards were also given to the most valuable men in football and basketball. This year two more were added to the list: awards for the most valuable men in the two other major sports, wrestling and track. Last year a new trophy was given to the school by Mssrs. Harry and William Gold, and this year they gave a second trophy to the school. TheSe trophies are to be awarded each year to the boys who show the best mental attitude in football and basketball.

COACHES Down through the history of the United States there has been one vital factor that has preserved the spirit of union and liberty that exists under the Constitution. That one factor is good leadership. The im- portance of this point was clearly shown in the Revolutionary War, when, through the careful planning and forethought of Washington and his generals, the American colonists won their freedom. As good leadership is important in a government, so is it equally important in school athletics. Behind the touchdown play, the winning basket, and the record run, is a carefully laid plan of action. This plan is formulated only by much thought and planning on the part of the cats” conquered the Clark team by the score of 20 to 7. In the coaches.

" A” SQUAD FOOTBALL The " Pioneers” marched through an eight-game schedule, being vic- torious in all but two of the eight battles. The " Pioneers” victory march was first halted on the Hammond battlefield where, after a hard fought battle, the Hammond High " Wild- cats” conquered the Clark team by the score of 20 to 7. In the last game of the season the " Pioneers” once more met defeat at the hands of the Whiting " Oilers” by the score of 7 to 0. Clark, however, emerged victorious from the other six battles, winning from Thornton Fractional, 12 to 0; from Washington 7 to 0; from Hobart, 27 to 6; from Hammond Tech, 7 to 6; from Valparaiso, 26 to 7; and from Catholic Central, 12 to 6. This year’s team was ably led by Captain Jim Galles, who, along with Bob Buehler, received honorable mention on Dick Miller’s All State team. Clark is proud of this year’s team and the success it has achieved, and we only wish Captain-elect William " Tiny” Fech and Coach Taylor the best of luck for an even better season next year.

CROSS COUNTRY This year’s team was under the supervision of Coach Paul Wilkin- son, and, although they won but two out of seven meets, many boys participating in cross country gained much valuable experience in this sport. The Pioneer cross country team won from Lew Wallace and Wash- mgton but was defeated twice by Roosevelt and once each by Froebcl, Hammond High, and Washington. The letter winners this fall were Captain Bill Burk, Mike Vaiiska, and Jim Groat. TENNIS The Pioneer tennis team, under the supervision of Coach Raymond Harris, had a very successful season this year, winning six matches out of nine. Three of the Pioneer net team’s victories were won over Whiting, and the remaining three were won from Emerson, Horace Mann, and Washington. They were defeated twice by Hammond High and once by South Bend Central. This year’s letter winners were: Captain Jack Kaplan, Seymour Kaplan, Donald Stiller, Julius Sopo, Mark Beaubien, and Harold Wargo.

" A” SQUAD BASKETBALL Under the direction of Coach Taylor, Clark’s 1 9 3 7-’3 8 basketball team, composed of eight seniors and four underclassmen, marched tri- umphantly through a strenuous twenty-five game schedule to the tune of nineteen victories and only six defeats. Lending additional signifi- cance to the team’s record was the fact that this year’s schedule was an unusually difficult one, for the ' Pioneers” were matched for the first time with many of the topnotch teams of the state. The " Pioneers” were defeated twice by Hammond High and Whit- ing and once by Emerson and Hobart. However, the boys more than evened up the score by defeating five conference teams. Three of these teams, Whiting, Tech, and Washington, bowed to the " Pioneers” twice during the season, and the two remaining teams, Roosevelt and Froebel, were defeated once. The team also defeated five out-of-town opponents, Ben Davis, Warren Central, and Southport of Indianapolis, Washington of South Bend, and West Lafayette. The Pioneer’s fine season was brought to a fitting climax by their outstanding record in the tournament. Getting one of the worst pos- sible draws, the " Pioneers” fought their way past Whiting and Hobart only to be defeated in the semi-finals by Hammond High. This game, however, was the outstanding game of the season, for the Pioneers held the strong Hammond High team to the score of 22-19.

" B” SQUAD BASKETBALL Captain Fred Stclow received the " C” Club medal which is award- ed to the most valuable boy on the squad. Bill Burk was awarded the Gold Trophy for showing the best mental attitude of any player on the team. The 1937-’38 basketball team has had a really successful season, and we sincerely hope that the 193 8-’39 team, under the leadership of Captain-elect Wilbur Buerckholtz, will have an even better record. Although the " B” squad had a very poor season, winning but two out of sixteen games, it had several promising players who in all prob- ability will make good material for next year’s team.

WRESTLING The Clark wrestling team, under the direction of Coach Wayne Cunningham, emerged with flying colors and a crown of glory from a strenuous twenty-meet schedule. In the state meet the " Pioneers” nosed out their home-town rival, Hammond High, by the score of 36-35. Clark again had three state champions: Captain-elect Jack Foster, 125- pound class; James Galles, 155-pound class; and Elmer Spisak, heavy- weight. The Pioneers went through a twenty-meet schedule, losing but once to Hammond High and tying Tilden Tech of Chicago. TRACK A spring sport in which many boys participate each year is track. This year’s team, under the supervision of Coach Wayne Cunningham, started training the first of March, and their first meet was held on March 19 at the Purdue fieldhouse. Eleven letter men of last year’s team returned again this year to strengthen the team greatly. These returning letter winners are: John Kanocz, Wilbur Buerckholtz, John Ihnat, Captain John Fetzko, Bill Turpin, Frank Shimala, Bill Burk, Dick Schroeder, Jim Groat, Chuck Tageson, and Russell Merry.

Gosh! it seems as if summer vacation only started a few days ago. We get back into the old routine in a hurry as clubs are organized and reorganized and class elections are held, not to mention a little school work on the side. Steve Gabor heads the senior class while Betty Lou Freeburg is elected to preside over the juniors. The social season gets into swing with the ' ' Book Worm Crawl” which draws a large attendance. September also sees bright prospects for the football season with two games and two victories. Thornton Fractional and Ho- bart are the first two victims.

We’re really getting educated! By the way, Hammond High handed us our first defeat of the season by a 20-7 score. Approximately 250 attend the " Spook Town Jamboree” sponsored by the sophs.

Judging from the turnouts at both dances, Clark students prefer the night life. Assemblies are given to celebrate Armistice Day and Education Week. The band plays and stu- dents give talks there is also community singing which sounds a bit weak in spots. The big game of the year, Clark vs. Whiting — we lose. Rivalry is forgotten after the game as both Clark and Whiting students see " Varsity Show” at the Hoosier. The seniors put on " The Ghost Train” with sound effects and everything. Bob Fischer gets desperate as he tells his story " About 20 years ago, etc.” Three times while Tom Wheeler is getting back in to the swing of things. However, " All’s well that ends well!” and the play is a big success. LAWRENCE FRALEY Cross Country 1, 2, 3, 4; Band 3, 4; " C” Club 3, 4; Basketball 2; " Pioneer News” Staff 4.

December The basketball season starts and Clark fans listen (?) to the broad- cast of the Southport game over station W-I-R-E. You can almost hear what the announcer is saying, especially during the half. Athletes feel important as they are honored at a banquet given at Phil Schmidt’s. Bo McMillan is the principal speaker of the evening. We all enjoy Miss Geraldine Westaby’s interesting and enlightening talk, concerning the problems of youth in foreign countries, given at a student assembly. How did she remember all those names? The annual Band Concert starts the Christmas holidays off right and is followed by the ' Winter Carni- val.” Thanks to the class of ’37 for the new Magnavox; it sounded " swell” at the dance. Clark graduates hold a banquet for the purpose of forming an Alumni Association. We hear that some of them hid their dishes of ice cream so they’d get second helpings.

Mildred Speichert and Albert Kessler do a good job of trying to keep us all singing together and on key, but it seems that different parts of the audience have their own ideas of how the songs are to be sung. Members of the Bio-Chem Club enjoy a scrumptious feed at their third annual banquet. After dinner speeches and presenta- tion of pins are also featured at the banquet.

February The birthdays of two of our greatest presidents are commemorated at the Lincoln-Washington Day assembly, and we gain some valuable information from the student talks, pantomimes, etc. Talking about gains, the boys who sang the old Civil War songs didn’t do so bad, judg- ing from the amount of small change thrown at them. Two dances are held this month; first, the Valentine Dance with the gym all decorated in big, little, and medium-sized hearts; and second, the Bio-Chem Mixer with decorations ranging from the pre-historic to the ultra modern.

( 75 ) March The Chicago Motor Club gives us an opportunity to find how we rate as drivers by bringing out some of its testing equipment. Tunnel vision, glare resistance, and speed estimation are some of the things that make up the test. Tournament time — this year it’s held at the new Civic Auditorium. Clark makes one of its best showings by beating two strong teams, Whiting, and Hobart, and in losing by three points to Hammond High in the semi-finals. " Back to School Night” — this time it’s the parents who come back. Mr. and Mrs. Parsons give three episodes from the life of Lincoln at a student assembly. Mr. Parsons proves to be the ex } act image of Lincoln in regard to personal appearance. " The Sun- bonnet Girl,” first musical commedy produced at Clark, is a big hit and brings requests for more of its kind. The Spring Band Concert is ac- claimed the best ever. With that kind of playing the band ought to go far in the coming contests. STANLEY MUCHA Student Council 4; Track 3.

April Mr. and Mrs. Parsons prove to be so good that they are brought back for a second engagement — this time they give " Rip Van Winkle” in three acts. The band places first division and gets a superior rating at the Regional Contest. The next step is to take first place in the state contest. Easter vacation, and is it welcome! Back to school, and the journalism classes take a long awaited trip to the Tribune Tower. The Social Service group of the Girl Reserves see social service on a large scale as they visit the famous Hull House in Chicago. The Junior Dance draws a big crowd and everyone has a wonderful time.

May Juanita McComb, sponsored by the Student Council, puts on an interesting program of bird calls. ' Remote Control,” put on by the juniors, is tops and supplies the audience with plenty of laughs. The Hi-Y, just to be different, sponsors a program of glass blowing by pro- fessionals. Everyone enjoys it, including the glass blowers themselves. ( 76 ) The G.A.C. holds its first banquet with the main event being the award- ing of athletic letters. The characters and events in " A Tale of Two Cities” are made more real to us when it is given in an assembly pro- gram. The city-wide Physical Education Demonstration is presented by the Hammond schools, and Clark, as well as others, makes a very fine showing.

First in line is the Junior Prom with everyone dancing far into the night and then hating to leave; next comes Baccalaureate with all its solemnity; then Class Night, which provides fun for everybody; and finally seniors say good-bye with tears in their eyes on Commencement night.
