Text from Pages 1 - 100 of the 1944 volume:

Powder Morn GO YOU PIONEERS! Go -- You -- Pioneers, We will back you with all our might, Go -- You -- Pioneers, Win that game for the Blue and White, With nothing less -- than -- vic’try your mark, Let the spir -- it of George Rogers Clark inspire you. Go — You -- Pioneers, let’s see you FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! to you Pioneers The Pioneers of George Rogers Clark have gone forth to war. And what could be more expressive of their fight¬ ing spirit than their school song? With this thought in mind we have chosen it as the theme of the 1944 Powder Horn, knowing that it exemplifies the true Pioneer char¬ acter—courage, love of country, and the adventurous spirit. This book, then, is intended to show that spirit in the stu¬ dents of our school. We wish to thank Herbert McLaughlin, photographer; Charles Delaney, printer; Pontiac Engraving; and the S. K. Smith Company for their kind cooperation. We especially want to thank Nilo Hovey, band director, for permission to print " Go You Pioneers.” May the Pioneer spirit continue to lead the students of Clark to greater victories! ☆ ENSIGN HAROLD ZIMMER, U.S.N.R. Gave his life while on duty aboard a destroyer somewhere in the Atlantic theater, November 25, 1945. 1 i t E hereby dedicate this book to Ensign Harold Zimmer, M former teacher and coach, and to those men of George Rogers Clark who have given their lives that we in America might remain free. They gave their best to their country cheerfully and uncomplainingly, following the tradition of the first Pioneers. There is but one way for us to try to repay the tremen¬ dous debt we owe them; that is to make America a land to which they would have liked to return, a country which has not forgotten the ideals of freedom for which they died. They would have wished a land of free enterprise,where men may rise by what they can do, not by the influential friends they have. They would have wanted a government that was truly representative of the people and a people aware of the responsibility they owed that government. They would have wished a world where all men lived in peace; there was too much hate in the world they knew. Only by striving to achieve such a world, may we express our gratitude for their sacrifice. We must not fail them.

Miller had a sincere interest in their problems and welfare. Not only did he keep the machinery of school life running smoothly, but he also cor¬ responded regularly with Clark graduates in the service. Mr. Ralph Cox, personnel director, gave students advice in plan¬ ning courses and vocations. The efficient office staff consisted of Mrs. Mabel Brown and Miss Lorraine Boness, who were aided by several students from the commer¬ cial classes. SCHOOL BOARD Mr. L. L.

More than ever before the faculty has striven to help the students of Clark prepare themselves for a not too certain future. New subjects were introduced to accomplish this end, especially in pre-induction train¬ ing. Refresher courses, designed to strengthen the basic groundwork of a good education, were also presented. Working harder than ever before under an increased schedule, the faculty members were, more than ever, friends and able counselors to the students, combining a love of teaching and a sense of humor with gen¬ uine interest in the students. This year witnessed the departure of several faculty members and welcomed Miss May Virden, speech instructor; Mrs. Lena Bonebrake, math instructor; Miss Joan Melass, nurse; Miss Edna Howe, typing in¬ structor; and Miss Beatrice Northstrum, art teacher. The faculty gave invaluable assistance in the stamp drive and the waste paper campaign and was a vital factor in upholding Clark’s achieve¬ ments in all phases of the war effort. Page Seem With Nothing Cess Zhan Victory ]f our Mark A new flag now flies beneath Old Glory, a flag that symbolizes both the vigilance and readiness of the Minute Men and the spirit of service that now belongs to Clark students At least ninety per cent of the students at Clark buy a defense stamp each month to keep it flying. They know that each bond and stamp they buy now will hasten the day when their fathers and brothers come marching home. It is typical of American democracy that students in a free school should give to the war effort without being forced to do so. It is typical of Clark that their response should be a hearty one. The students of Clark have proved their worth on the battle field and at home in a less spectacular but extremely important way. Determined to win the war and the peace to follow, the Pioneers truly have " nothing less than victory their mark.” Cet the Spirit of George Kogers Clark Jaspire )ou r HE GRADUATES of 1944 face an uncertain future, but they are not unprepared for it. They have been armed with the most potent weapon they could possess, the best high school education their country could offer. Many have already had to leave school for the service; all expect to serve their country in the near future. How has their education equipped them? First, it has fostered and nourished the ideals for which they are fighting. History has taught them the glorious past of America and has shown them the way to an even greater future. The knowl¬ edge is theirs. Whether it will be used to the best ad vantage lies en¬ tirely with them, the future law-makers and citizens of America. They find inspiration in the struggles and hardships of the early Pioneers who sacrificed their comforts to unite America. The frontier of these future citizens is broader now . Their task is to unite the world. Second, their education has tried to equip them with the truth. The faults and mistakes of America are shown clearly without being minimized. American students can look at the past with pride and yet keep both feet on the ground with no visions of superiority. They know that many difficult tasks lie ahead and that many blunders will yet be made. In looking to the past to find hope for the future, they see the steadfast courage, keen vision, and spirit of service that charac¬ terized George Rogers Clark. He and his pioneers founded American democracy, and in this crisis, it will be the students of today who must preserve it. Senior Class After four years of outstanding achievements, the Senior Class of 1944 looks in retrospect as fond memories of high school days flash by. Starting as freshmen under the courageous and devoted leader¬ ship of Mr. Joseph W. Griffin, the class elected as officers Donald Cadwell, president; Alice French, vice president; Janet Atchison, secretary; and Roger Moore, treasurer. Rules of eligibility were laid down at the first class meeting. The freshmen voted that no member of the class of ’44 could hold an office unless he maintained a " C” average in scholarship. The class was determined to shed the cloak of " green little freshics” that envelops every Freshman Class. Therefore, it initiated the " get acquainted” parties, and the two held early in the year proved to be great successes. During the school year a pantomine given by players from the Earlham College was sponsored by the class. (Continued) Page Eleven With united effort the class presented its first social fling, ' Valentine Dance,” on February 7. Novel advertisements and decora¬ tions proved that this was a go-getting class. Over 350 persons attended, and approximately sixty dollars was netted. Committees for the dance were headed by the following: Barbara Argus, publicity and tickets; George French, decorations; and John Skiba, refresh¬ ments. Innovation of a guidance program by Mr. Griffin resulted in an evening meeting in May, 1941, which was attended by students, parents, and teachers. Extra-curricular activities were not forgotten by the energetic members of the class. The music department attracted many, and the band, orchestra, and various choral groups made room for the fresh- (Continued) h-ge Twelve BETTY COMSTOCK Cheerleader 2, 3, 4; GAC 1, 2, 3, 4; Glee Club 2; Girl Re¬ serves 1, 2; Service Club 2; Forum Club 4; Red Cross 3; Pio¬ neer News 4.

Debate and speech work had many freshmen in their ranks. Freshman athletes showed great promise, especially in football and basketball. During its sophomore year the class was led by James Barnes, president; Rudolph Plcmich, vice president; Nina Lourik, secretary; and William Trebs, treasurer. Living up to its reputation, the class started the year by entertaining the freshmen at a get-together party. The sophomores sponsored a colorful South American tour show, " The Romance of Old Mexico.” On the exact day the class of ’44 gave its " Victory Valentine Dance,” the first Sophomore Class to have an orchestra at its dance. (Continued) Ninety dollars was taken in. Home-made movies were a unique feature in the advertising. Arrangements were under the supervision of Mary Ann Dubeck, decorations; Joe Matis, publicity and tickets; Rindalee Purinton, program; and Jack Williams, refreshments. During the year the class purchased a twenty-five dollar bond with the money in the treasury. George French was chosen to represent Clark at the Boys’ State Convention in Indianapolis. Sports again consumed a large portion of the athletic-minded sophomore boys. Bob Donham and Godfrey Labda showed promise in basketball, while football and wrestling appealed to others.

Vage Eighteen As juniors the class elected Godfrey Labda, president; Joe Matis, vice president; Janet Atchison, secretary; and Dick Snyder, treasurer. Once more the year began with a junior-freshman party for which the admission was one defense stamp. One hundred and eighteen ten-cent defense stamps were purchased. There was some anxiety over the prospect of getting class rings, but happily enough, the class was able to buy them. The juniors presented the social whirl, " Snow Drift,” in January. A tissue paper blizzard enveloped the attendants while they were dancing. Carl Wayo, Mildred Swctnam, Janet Atchison, Tom Letcher, and Barbara Argus led the various committees. ( Continued) " And Came the Spring,” a comedy centering around high school people, was the highly successful play given by the Junior Class. Marian Tarr headed the cast of exuberant students home for spring vacation, and their romantic antics kept the appreciative audience in gales of laughter. In the literary field Alice French and Ed Isberg won the district contest in the American Legion Auxiliary Essay Contest. Alice French was also chosen to represent Clark at Girls’ State. Barbara Argus and Alice French had the distinct honor of being named to the National Honor Society while juniors. The junior-senior prom, " Magnolia Mood,” on June 4 culminated the year. Music was furnished by Rcnald Young and his orchestra. ( Continued ) Through the ingenuity and cooperation of the Junior Class, the prom was a delightful affair. Leaders of the various committees were Ralph Theissen, orchestra; Rosemarie Fedorko, program; George French, decorations; and Ann Marie Watskin, invitations. Taking over the affairs of the school in its senior year, the class of ’44 elected Ralph Theissen, president; Ed Isbcrg, vice president; Mary Ann Dubeck, secretary; and Joe Figuly, treasurer. Dave Wagoner headed the Student Council, and the various organizations were led by industrious seniors. The class again purchased a twenty-five dollar war bond during the year. ( Continued ) Page Twenty-Three The senior play, " Mrs. Miniver,” starring Dorothy Klepach, lived up to the reputation gained by the class for splendid perform¬ ances. The play portrayed a British family during the present war. The cooperative cast turned out a fine dramatic presentation, featur¬ ing a realistic air raid. The class and whole school cooperated to obtain the coveted Minute Man Flag. Led by Ralph Theissen, the jeep campaign went over with great success. " Happy Holiday Hop,” the senior dance presented on December 30, featured the music of Renald Young. As usual, clever and eco¬ nomical decorations festooned the gym. Again, senior boys occupied the sports’ limelight as the football team tied for the conference championship, and the basketball team captured the conference crown. As the Senior Class of 1944 reaches graduation, a jog in the road of life, it stops for a moment, standing on the threshold of a world ravaged and hardened by war, and then thoughtfully steps forward, willing to bear its burden and do its utmost to restore peace again.

Norbert Adams later took over the vice president’s duties when Al Manchak entered the Navy. On January 27 the energetic members of the class presented their novel dance, " Sock Hop.’’ Dancing in socks proved to be great fun, and the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Living up to its reputation of giving splendid entertainment in all fields, the Junior Class presented the very successful play, " Janey’s One Track Mind, on April 27 and 28. Virginia Gay and Genevieve Kowalski starred in the production which centered around Jancy Browne’s dilemma of choosing a career or a husband.

Many players on the football and basketball teams -were members of the class of ’45. Junior boys were also enrolled in track, cross-country, and other minor sports teams. The Junior Class was well represented in speech and debate work. The awards brought home by these industrious members point toward high achievements during their last year. A number of juniors be¬ longed to music and outside activity groups in which they worked fervently. With an outstanding record behind it and new goals ahead to conquer, the Junior Class during its final year definitely will lead the way toward a brighter future for the entire school. Page Twenty-Seven With Miss Bernice Williamson as its able sponsor, the Sopho¬ more Class completed its second year of high school activity. Early in the year class leaders were chosen. Results of the election pronounced Bernard Kotarski, president; J. D. Schlatter, vice presi¬ dent; Corlis Thomas, secretary; and James Mullins, treasurer. As freshmen, the class began its high school career with the dance, " Swing Inn.” True to form, the sophomores again presented a social success, " Pilgrim’s Prance.” On November 24 the attractively decorated gym lured many boys and girls, who tried a bit of prancing with the aid of the magnavox. Both boys and girls participated in sports. A number of girls were active members of the ping-pong, volleyball, and other sports teams. Many sophomore boys were busy winning names for themselves Sophomore p agf Twenty-Fjgbl on the freshman-sophomore football and basketball teams. The records show that these boys will soon become the mainstays of our future varsity teams. Many sophomores enjoyed working in the music and speech departments. A number were members of the various choral groups which provided the background of the operetta. Speech and debate students dedicated themselves to the furthering of Clark’s shining debate record. The Sophomore Class has successfully passed the half-way mark in its high school career. If its past achievements mean anything, Clark can be sure that this class will steadfastly maintain the school’s lofty ideals. Its members will continue to bring back laurels in every field of endeavor.

Iresknian A new Freshman Class entered Clark’s portals in the fall of 1943 with the tradition of " green little freshies’’ hanging over its head. But under the guidance of Miss Ida Ivcrscn, the freshmen emerged, not " green,” but courageous and determined to find their place among the classes at Clark. During its first year the class was headed by James Eggers, presi¬ dent; Robert Tallman, vice president; Sally Roberts, secretary; and Arthur Powell, treasurer. In February the class held a mixer in the gym for the express purpose of getting better acquainted. Games, dancing, and refresh¬ ments were enjoyed by all who attended. Many freshman boys entered football, basketball, and other sports. From the fine attitude and skill displayed by these boys, there Page Thirty FRESHMAN CLASS To,I row, left to right: Linn, Long.

Class is great hope that they will be the future Clark stars. The freshmen were interested in speech and debate and organized a debate squad. Its members worked diligently and laid the basis for our future debate teams. The music organizations gained many ener¬ getic freshmen members who certainly proved their worth. The social career of the class officially opened with the dance in May. Clever posters advertised the fling, and novel decorations greeted the many guests as they entered the gym. In the magazine drive the Freshman Class emerged as victors, having sold subscriptions totalling $371.50. Freshman Frank Hill took individual honors as he sold the largest number of subscriptions. With three more years ahead of it, great things are expected of the industrious, cooperative Freshman Class. National Mo nor Society As a reward for giving four years of service to the school and for possessing the requisites of good scholarship, leadership, and fine character, seventeen seniors and five juniors were elected by the faculty to the National Honor Society. Alice French and Barbara Argus, the seniors who had been elected last year, served as president and vice president-secretary-treasurer, respectively. To stimulate the qualities of scholarship, athletic skill, and fine sportsmanship which so characterized Mr. Zimmer, the club presented the school with the Harold Zimmer Memorial Award to be given yearly to the senior boy who displayed these qualities to the highest degree. Each year the winner will have his name inscribed on a plaque bearing Mr. Zimmer’s picture, and he will be presented with a gold key to signify his achievement. Pa%e Thirty-Two We Will Rack you With Ml Our Might Page Tbirty-Tbrcc ERVICE to school and community was the keynote of the clubs and organizations at George Rogers Clark this year. Keenly aware that no matter how small the individual con¬ tribution, the total would be of real help in the war effort, the stu¬ dents participated eagerly in the jeep campaign, the scrap drive, and Red Cross membership drive. Their aim was to establish records that would make the graduates in the service proud of them, and that they succeeded was proved by the many letters which the servicemen wrote complimenting them. Recognizing that recreation was an important factor in keeping up school spirit, the organizations also pursued hobbies, developed cultural interests, and held festive social gatherings. The clubs had still another purpose in mind. This was to make their members capable and poised, able to take an active part in the affairs of their community. The debate teams increased the ability of their members to speak effectively and well. The Forum Club stimulated an interest in government which is so vital to the preserva¬ tion of our democracy. In all the many varied organizations at Clark the students were free to express themselves and encouraged to use their natural abilities to the fullest extent. All club members were expected to be active, and this year they were exceptionally so. Shouldering the responsibilities of a nation at war, they led George Rogers Clark to new laurels and higher achieve- Standing, left to right: Mr. R. B.

Miller as sponsor, the Student Council completed many projects this year. To increase the sale of war stamps and bonds, a double-triple threat jeep campaign was carried on with Ralph Theissen as chairman. The campaign was climaxed by an assembly on the second anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Since at least ninety per cent of the students bought one stamp a month, a Minute Man Flag was ordered by the council and flown throughout the year. The council also assisted the Red Cross in the paper drag and conducted the Infantile Paralysis Drive. It sponsored some of the assemblies. One of them featured Anauta, an Eskimo woman, who gave a lecture on her life in the Arctic. During the second semester, goals for the school, which had been decided upon by the faculty, were discussed by the student body. They pertained to healthful living, self-discipline, service, apprecia¬ tion of beauty, respectfulness, and reverence. The students accepted them unanimously. Page Tbhty-five Red Cross Clark’s Junior Red Cross, a branch of the National Red Cross Council, proved itself an outstanding organization as its activities aided the war effort more and more. Under the leadership of Mrs. Vera Walden, it sponsored the paper drive and the war fund drive. Rag dolls and ditty bags were made. An afghan was completed with knitted squares turned in by students. In addition, games and pocket-sized mystery books were collected for wounded servicemen convalescing in hospitals. The girls aided the Senior Red Cross by rolling bandages at the Com¬ munity Center. Service to others, promotion of health, and promotion of safety were stressed in this year’s membership drive.

A general guidance program! The home room basketball tourney! These and many more service activities may be credited to Clark’s Hi-Y Club. Under the sponsorship of Mr. Paul Wilkinson, the Hi-Y com¬ pleted a very active year of service. Led by President Rudy Plemich, the club followed a calendar which had been prepared at the begin¬ ning of the year. By this means the boys always had a clear picture of what lay ahead in the year’s activities. Cabinet and general club meetings were always in the form of noon luncheons. Throughout the year special meetings such as basket¬ ball, alumni, and award meetings were held in the evening. As in the past, the life blood of the Hi-Y Club was the constant endeavor by all the boys to fulfill its lofty objective, " To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character.’’ Girl Reserves To face life squarely, and to find and give the best is the code of each Girl Reserve member. Anxious to " find” a service and " give her best,” each girl was required to do some service to remain in the organization. The services rendered varied from working for the Red Cross to selling tags for the Auxiliary of Disabled Veterans. One of the most impressive services held during the entire year was the candlelighting ceremony for the initiation of new members. Ten GR’s attended the Northern Indiana Girl Reserve Conference held at Gary. A successful junk jewelry drive was sponsored to collect trinkets to enable the soldiers in the South Pacific to barter with the natives. Two parties highlighted the social activities; a party for the new members, and a combined Hi-Y-Girl Reserve party. A hundred dollar war bond was purchased by the club; they also gave contributions to the Carmelite Orphanage, Red Cross, USO, YWCA, and the Community Chest. The officers of the club also participated in an Inter-Club Coun¬ cil which met at the Hammond YWCA. Miss Emily Johnson was sponsor. Assisting her were Miss Ida Iversen, Miss Margaret Idc, and Miss Leah Booth. Orchestra Providing music on various occasions throughout the year kept the orchestra busy. Each time that it was called upon to perform, it did a good job. Under the direction of Mr. Darwin Eret, the organization played for " Mrs. Miniver” and " Janey’s One Track Mind,” the senior and junior plays. It also presented a variety of numbers in the winter and spring concerts. The orchestra played the overture and provided the accompaniment for the operetta, " Riding Down the Sky.” Later in the year it presented a program in assembly which featured several novelty pieces. A few selections were played at a meeting of the PTA. A small string group from the orchestra performed at a recep¬ tion in honor of Governor Henry Schricker of Indiana. This group played for a church program later in the year. Another string ensemble, composed entirely of girls, provided music for several events in the community. By taking part in so many activities, members of the orchestra gained a deeper appreciation of music and an enjoyment from playing, while giving pleasure to those who heard them.

Band x V e With an exceptionally large membership of sixty-seven students from the junior and senior high school, the band completed a success¬ ful year. It was under the leadership of Mr. Nilo Hovey, director, and Mr. Adam Decker, assistant director. w This organization helped to arouse the school spirit of students at the home football games. Clad in blue and gray uniforms, the members, led by the drum major and drum majorettes, appeared on the field playing the school song and peppy marches. A small group from the band provided music at the basketball games. The band performed in the winter concert, playing a variety of numbers and presenting a brass sextet and a flute trio. It also played several selections in the spring concert. In one of the assemblies the organization gave a musical program. Many of the numbers played had been requested by students. The band provided music for some of the pep assemblies also. As a contribution to the war effort, the band played at numerous plaque dedications. It also marched in a bond rally parade. Thus, it was of real service to the school and to the community.

Vocal Music Music has always been held high as a builder of morale, and at Clark it has played its part well. The Mixed Chorus is only one of the many musical groups at Clark. It is also one of the largest, con¬ sisting of about fifty members. Students interested in music were asked to sign up for chorus just as if it were a regular class. They met every morning during the first period. Five-tenths credit was given to every student in the Mixed Chorus. The chorus sang in two assemblies at the beginning of the year. Later in the school year it presented " Ballad for Americans,’’ a cantata, made famous by Paul Robeson. It also participated in the operetta, " Riding Down the Sky.” Before school let out for the Christmas holidays it took part in the annual Christmas program which consisted of songs by the different musical groups. The pro¬ cessional was " O Come All Ye Faithful” and the recessional, " Joy to the World.” Music plays an important part in a war torn world, and the Mixed Chorus has done its job well—to build morale and keep it high. Miss Wilma Range was the capable director in charge of this group. TRIPLE TRIOS AND BOYS ' SEXTET Standing, left to right: Phylln Cannells, Kam¬ insky, Annabellc Giffin, Argus.

Along with the Triple Trios and Mixed Chorus, the Boys’ Sextet presented " Ballad for Americans” in an assembly and also took part in the Christmas festivities. The Senior Triple Trio sang for the Chamber of Commerce and the Girl Reserve candlelighting service. Miss Wilma Range directed these musical organizations.

In spite of the fact that they’re in the youngest clubs at Clark, members of the Spanish clubs have a real interest in studying the language spoken by their Latin-American neighbors. Under the sponsorship of Miss Hazel Holland, the clubs held monthly meetings. Several movies were shown, and the second year class presented a series of one-act plays in Spanish. In April they donned their best sombreros and mantillas to attend a Chili supper. The first and second year officers elected were Frances Argus and Bob Vogel, presidents; Arthur Brown and Maebclle Giffin, vice presidents; and Lois Bates and Marilyn Studer, secretary-treasurers.

CatiH Clubs To the average person who has not studied Latin, the Roman people are thought of as a rather distant race who lived many years ago. To the Latin students they are people like ourselves. The two clubs were not only acquainted with Cicero, Virgil, and Caesar, but learned of the many interesting customs, history, and culture of a race which has contributed greatly to our customs and language today. The Latin Club members met situations everyday where their knowledge of the language helped them to think, spell, and write. Meetings for both clubs were held in the regular class periods once a month. Miss Evelyn Carlson, who taught the classes, sponsored the groups. Some of the programs consisted of vocabulary " spell-downs” of Latin words, and often the clubs played Latin games and gave short skits. The most anticipated event of the entire year for both clubs was the Latin banquet held May 11. It was at this time that many white-clad figures floated around the school participating in chariot races, a circus, and a slave sale. The second year classes acted as citizens, while the first year clubs were slaves. The slaves provided the food; the citizens, entertainment. An adaptation based on the assassination of Caesar was pre¬ sented in an assembly the latter part of the year. It was in the form of an operetta written by the students of Belhaven college. Costumes for the play were in typical Roman style. Playing the leading roles were J. D. Schlatter, Phyllis Cannells, Paul Wampler, and Jim Mullins. Page Forty-the ' Debate and Speech Upholding the past records of achievement, the " A” squad de¬ baters, Ann Watskin, George French, Ed Schroer, and Neal Creswell, debated forty-eight debates, seventy per cent of which they won. A demonstration debate at Indianapolis for the Indiana Teachers’ Association opened the season of discussion on resolved: " That the United States Should Join in the Reconstituting of the League of Nations.” Entering the Chicago League tournament they placed second; they also tied for third at the State National Forensic League contest. With the departure of Miss Laura Schad in February, Mr. Joe Griffin assumed sponsorship. Individual speakers concluded a victorious season by capturing the NFL sweepstakes title at Columbia City. Oralie Herbert, Marian Tarr, and the four varsity debaters achieved the highest award in the National Forensic League, the Degree of Distinction. Jorum Club At the beginning of the year juniors and seniors taking social studies were invited to become members of the Forum Club. Meetings were held every two weeks on Wednesday evenings. Panel discussions were held, and through the effort of Mr. Joe Griffin, able leader of this group, it was arranged to hear several outside speakers. Members of the University of Chicago Forum Club discussed " Student Aspects of Religion and Family Life.” Clark members were encouraged to ask questions during the course of the discussion. " Personal Financing for Young People” was the topic spoken on by Mr. W. R. Sm ith of the State Bank of Whiting. The Forum Club offered opportunities for its members and others attending the meetings to express their opinions and views freely, which is a sign of true democracy. Cibrary Club With service as its aim, the Library Club, under the sponsorship ot Miss Harriet Lake, completed a busy year. Members of the organ¬ ization aided students in the selection of books and assisted Miss Lake with her work. They also arranged displays on the bulletin boards, repaired old books, and prepared new books for use. In the midst of all this activity frolicked Sandy, the club’s cat. Poetry Club Since one of the chief pleasures derived from poetry is in reading it aloud, the members of the Poetry Club chose the improvement of their reading ability as the aim of the organization this year. At one of the most interesting meetings of the year, poems pertaining to the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I, and World War II were read. Original jingles, ballads, humorous verse, and local color poems were featured at other meetings. Record¬ ings of poetry readings were also played. With Miss Carolyn Lambert as sponsor, the club had an enjoy¬ able year.

Radio Club Under Mr. Paul Wilkinson, sponsor, the Radio Club became an important and essential club at Clark for those interested in radio work. The purpose of the club was to give its members basic train¬ ing in radio work. Radio classes were held after school every day at which time the boys learned vital information. One activity of the club was the study of the theory of radio. Learning and practicing the interna¬ tional code was another practical project undertaken by the boys. They also studied the construction of radios. Stamp Club A hobby builds morale, and for those whose hobby was stamp collecting, the Stamp Club was formed at Clark. Students who had an active interest in stamps were members of the club. Meetings were held after school on Tuesdays with Mr. Joe Grif¬ fin, sponsor of the club. At these meetings stamps were exchanged among members. One meeting centered around the discussion of Nor¬ wegian, Swedish, Danish, and English stamps. Students purchased stamps from Mr. Griffin and added them to their collections. Pugf toily-Nint qm To stimulate interest and to promote ideals in girls’ health and physical activity was the aim of the GAC, sponsored by Miss Cor- innc Otto. This was also the purpose of the Indiana League of High School Girls’ Associations to which the club belonged. Since they had to be active in school sports and had to pass certain tests, only those girls who were really interested were able to join the organization. To remain in the club, they had to go out for at least one major and one minor sport. The GAC sponsored all intramural games, but anyone, whether she was a member or not, could participate. The major sports were basketball, volleyball, softball, and speedball. Tumbling, bowling, ping pong, and aerial darts comprised the minor sports. Several pep assemblies were arranged by the GAC. It held its annual play-day with Whiting; however, state play-days were dis¬ continued because of the war.

Coach Arvo Antilla was the sponsor of this active organiza¬ tion and did much to promote the activities and welfare of the club. As its name implies, to become a member of the C Club one must earn a major letter in one of the many Pioneer sports. Joe Figuly was the president of the club this year and led it in its many affairs—the In and Out game, the C Club dance, and the C Club banquet. C Club award winners named this year were Ralph Theissen, C Club all-around award; Bernard Pavlovic, best mental attitude in football; Barney Zagrocki, most valuable in football; Bob Donham, most valuable in basketball; Dave Wetnight, most valuable in track (1943 season); Neal Creswell, most valuable in tennis; Ed Isberg, most valuable in wrestling; and Bill Rapohak, best mental attitude in basketball.

Patrol and Service Clubs " Service to others” might well be the motto of the Patrol and Service Clubs. These organizations placed the welfare of others before their own interests. Regardless of weather, the patrol boys were out doing their duty as good soldiers on the home front. Three important duties of these boys consisted of patrolling the halls at noon, helping smaller chil¬ dren cross the streets safely, and maintaining order at football games. Able supervisor of this group was Mr. M. L. Mullins. Under the direction of Miss Ellen Viney and Mr. Howard Steven¬ son, the Service Club came to prove itself an invaluable organiza¬ tion at Clark. Members of this club supervised the noon hour of lunch pupils in the elementary grades. Page Tifty-Two ftgt Fifty-Tbi Stage Production Staff Service was truly the purpose of the Stage Production Staff, dir¬ ected by Miss May Virden, faculty adviser, and Jack Cravens and Ernest Balog, student managers. Members of the staff worked on all phases of production for the plays, the operetta, and assemblies. New scenery was constructed for the junior play, and a new motion pic¬ ture screen was made. The Dramatic Club, also sponsored by Miss Virden, worked on a one-act comedy, " So You’re Going to Paris,” which was presented for the Girl Reserves. At one of the meetings an interesting talk on make-up, the fundamentals of acting, and general stagework was given by Miss Laura Schad, former dramatics coach. Pioneer News Presenting an accurate account of all school activities, clubs, classes, and sports, and reporting it in an interesting and neat form was the goal of twenty-five Pioneer News staff members. In addition to printing the paper, they were responsible for play and football programs and conducted several polls for the Institute of Student Opinion. The hours spent in production were rewarded by achieving the highest rating granted by the National Scholastic Press Associa¬ tion, the All-American rating. Mr. Max Beaty, sponsor, had a great deal to do with winning this award, for, without his helpful criticism and sincere interest, it would never have been accomplished. Members of the staff were Janet Atchison, editor-in-chief; Mar¬ ian Tarr, managing editor; Norma Hansen, head typist; Amelia Kacer, Betty Vater, and Jeanette Rakoczy, page editors; Maxine Van- denberg and Irene Molnar, copy editors; Dave Wetnight and Neal Creswell, sports editors; Thcresc Murzyn and Mary Ann Dubeck, proof readers; Rosemarie Fedorko and Marilyn Studcr, mimeograph- ers; Macbcllc Giffin and Alice French, mimeoscopc operators; Betty Comstock, exchanges; Dorothy Klepach, Lorraine Kozak, Gerry Can- ner and Roseann Dulski, typists; Helene Economou and Margaret Zvijak, feature writers; Frances Florkiewicz and Carolyn Foreman, circulation.

First row: Tarr (managing editor), Vandenberg, Rakoczy, Kacer, Atchison (editor), Giffin, Mr. Max Beaty, Hansen (head typist), French, Kozak. Realizing what an important place school spirit has in deter¬ mining the success of any organization, the Powder Horn staff chose as its theme the school song, " Go You Pioneers.” The words and music were written by the band director, Mr. Nilo Hovey, and de¬ note the true Pioneer spirit. War time regulations demanded a yearbook even smaller than last year’s. Under the guidance of Mr. Max W. Beaty, the staff set out to produce a compact recording of the year’s activities. With Alice French editing the book, and Janet Atchison, asso¬ ciate editor, work began on the production of the " students’ book.” Rindalee Purinton, who headed the subscription staff, set as a goal six hundred subscriptions, and with the aid of home room repre¬ sentatives reached it. Other staff positions included Dave Wetnight and Neal Creswell, sports editors; Maxine Vandenberg and Irene Molnar, copy editors; Barbara Argus and George French, advertising managers; Oralie Her¬ bert, art editor; Marian Tarr, activity editor; and Norma Hansen, Lorraine Kozak, Dorothy Klcpach, Roseann Dulski, and Gerry Can- ner, typists. VtRf fifty-five Drum Majorettes and Cheerleaders The cheerleaders, sponsored by Miss Corrinne Otto, were present at all of the games to arouse the students and to encourage the play¬ ers. In addition to the regular yells, Karl Kasch and Delores Canner performed some daring acrobatic tricks. Also seen at the football games were the drum majorettes, who led the band on the field. Page Fifty-Six Win Zhat Qame lor the Blue and White e LARK athletes have won a state-wide reputation for their fine ability and their over-powering will to win. This desire for victory carried them to conference championships this year a major sports, football and basketball. In many of the minor sports the coaches had only young and inexperienced material, but in all cases the battling Pioneers made up for what they lacked in ability and experience by fight and the will to win. This fine spirit enabled them to turn in good season records. Coach Arvo Antilla ' s gridders had a remarkable won and lost record featured by the trouncing of two of the region’s strongest elevens, East Chicago Roosevelt and for the first time, our cross¬ town relation, Hammond High. When injuries beset them in the latter part of the season, the fighting Pioneers, although badly under¬ manned, made every opponent scrap for each inch of ground gained. When forced into defeat, this true Pioneer spirit caused them to go down fighting to the final gun. During their outstanding nineteen game winning streak, the Shieldsmen were besieged at all times by opponents primed to defeat them. When the strain of battle became almost too much as in the Hammond Tech and Horace Mann games, this fighting spirit and desire to win allowed them to crash through and gain the final victory. When the inevitable happened and the Pioneers tasted bitter defeat at a time when victory meant the most, as always, the Clark- sters showed their ability to take the bitter with the sweet and took their licking as true sportsmen should. In all sports the Pioneer athletes displayed this commendable spirit for which there can be no other reward than victory. He who wants to win, will win!

Varsity football " Terrors of the Conference” might well be a suitable title for the 1943 edition of Clark’s football Pioneers. Following an initial l oss to South Bend Washington, potential state champion, the Pioneers ran roughshod over all opposition. Bar¬ ney Zagrocki, George Buksar, and Norby Adams became the most feared backs in the northwest corner of the state. This touchdown trio ran and passed 1,948 yards in nine games. Washington, Tech, Griffith, Hammond High, Roosevelt, Froebcl, and Tolleston were all hapless victims of the Clark steamroller. It was the line and backfield hitting hard together that caused the Pion¬ eers to be hailed as " one of the greatest teams in Western division history.” A perfect conference record was lost when Whiting upset the Pioneers and threw the Western division race into a four-way tie. This situation was broken by a quirk of fate, and the Pioneers pre¬ pared for the playoff game with South Bend Washington. In a hard fought contest, it was the Pioneers who fell still fighting. All in all, the football team enjoyed the most successful season in the history of GRC. P ' S ' Fifty-Nil ' Conference NORBERT ADAMS GEORGE BUKSAR MR.

Three victories apiece over their bitterest rivals, Whiting and Hammond High! These were only a few of the brilliant tilings Coach Ed Shields’ Pioneer cagers did during the basketball season erf 1943-44. Godfrey Labda, Will Rapchak, Bob Donham, George Buksar, and Ralph Theissen were the main cogs in leading the scrapping Clarksters to their outstanding season record of twenty-one victories against only two defeats, with nineteen of those victories coming in a row. East Chicago Washington gained a full measure of revenge for an early season trouncing when big Vince Boryla and his teammates knocked the Shicldsmcn out of sectional play with a convincing upset in the semi-finals. Racing to many victories, the Pioneers were a scoring team led by their forwards, Labda and Rapchak, each of whom averaged ten points per game. Against East Chicago Roosevelt the Clark cagers smashed the team scoring record for one game by fielding 68 points, and Labda equalled the individual record with 23 points. Clark’s reserve team, the Settlers, showed great promise for next year as they placed second in conference standings and second in the " B” squad tourney.

Led by the veterans, John Roberts, Jim Barnes, Al Freeburg, Joe Figuly, and Emil Cutka, the harriers emerged victorious in seven out of ten dual meets. At South Bend in the N1HSC meet the distance runners placed fifth in a field of twelve schools completing. Tennis, still in its infancy at Clark, saw a good season with the racket-wielders taking second place in the Western division meet. Individual triumphs were scored when Neal Creswell and Edmund Schroer won conference championships in the number one and num¬ ber two classes, respectively. Wrestling and Zrack Coach R. W. Cunningham, along with his duties as athletic dir¬ ector at Clark, found time to instruct the wrestling and track teams, managing always to turn out high caliber squads. Although hard hit by graduation, the draft, and boys enlisting in the armed forces, the wrestling squad went through its meager schedule this season, building up the nucleus of a fine team for next year. There was a fine turn-out for track this spring, but only a few of the boys had any varsity experience. Nevertheless, the squad im¬ proved as the season progressed and had a splendid record in the larger meets, with the distance runners winning most of the team’s Pane Sixty-Eight Qiris ' Sports Tumbling, speedball, basketball, volleyball, and bowling made up the girls’ sports schedule this year. Open to all girls interested in participating, practices were held during the noon hour Monday and Wednesday of every other week. As usual the nucleus of the activities was made up of members of the Girls’ Athletic Club, and all sports were under the direction of Miss Corinne Otto. Imogene Eberly received the reward for the best mental attitude, and Elaine Gehring was named best athlete. Page Sixty-Nine October September The 1942-43 PN won the NSPA All-American award . . .
