The top one shows a fall scene; the middle one, winter; and the bottom, spring. In the fall the students, fresh from a summer’s vacation, start the long journey which they must make through the year. As winter sets in, they are in the full swing of activities; and by spring, they put the finishing touches to their assignments. No matter what season it is at Clark, though, students may be found working hard on their school work and extra-curricular activities. Classes With an emphasis upon world peace and the building of individual charac- ter, all nations are striving to better world conditions. Each member of the various classes at Clark endeavors to gain this desire by accumulating know- ledge to establish himself in a just society. Through co-operation and hard work in class events, each student rea- lizes that many goals which are bigger and better than his own may be attain- ed for the benefit of all. Page Twelve Our Principal PRINCIPAL Mr. R. B. Miller For fifteen years Principal R. B. Miller has been guiding George Rogers Clark High School past numerous difficulties. Busy as he is in administrating to the needs of the school, Mr. Miller, known as " prince-of-a- pal,” is always ready to help and encourage students by a cheerful smile, sound advice, and pleasant words. Miss Pearl Yocham and Mr. Paul Wilkin- son share the office of guidance conselors at Clark in directing the curriculum and activities of the students. The Board of School Trustees, composed of five members elected for a four year term, is in charge of operating the entire Ham- mond Public School System. Under the leadership of Superintendent Lee L. Caldwell, the present board consists of Mr. Walter Thornton, president; Mr. Charles N. Scott, secretary; Mr. Columbus Smith, treasurer; Dr. Henry Eggers and Mr. Archie Spoerner, members-at-large; and Mr. Gerald A. Gillett, attorney. GUIDANCE COUNSELORS Miss Pearl Yocham and Mr, Paul Wilkinson I S T R A T I O N Mrs. Mabel Brown, Miss Dolores Cross, and Miss Melba Johnson supervise the office and along with the help of the student workers take care of the secretarial needs of the faculty and students. Their loyalty to Clark, friendliness, efficiency, and willingness to help at all times provide a cheerful atmos- phere in the school office, where much business is transacted during the entire day.

Besides carrying on their regular class work teachers have often helped students find their way through perplexing problems and difficulties. For this reason the faculty members at Clark are not just teachers, but friends to the students. In addition to this many of the teachers act as sponsors for the numerous clubs in school. Combining a love of teaching with a fine sense of humor and a sincere interest in the physical and mental health of each student, our teachers have done their part in keeping the George Rogers Clark Creed — ' To the best of our ability we shall en- deavor to faithfully serve our school. Honor and uphold its name. Strive for high scholarship, citizenship, and sportsmanship. ” ■■■ Page Fourteen y F a c u I t Although our teachers could have left Clark for higher paying jobs in industry, many of them faithfully remained in school. Several instructors were added to the GRC faculty this year. Included among them were Mr. Emerson Aldrich, mathematics teacher and assistant football and basketball coach; Miss Dorothy Clark and Miss Harriette Shoe- maker, English instructors; Mrs. Rebekah Eddy, Latin teacher; Miss Leota Kenzie, physical education advisor; and Mrs. Shirley Wilson, nurse. Because of the resignation of Mr. Max W. Beaty, former Publications Director, Mrs. Doris Fuller was obtained as journalism instructor. As their social activities the teachers held their annual banquet at Christmas and their spring picnic in May. Seniors 1944 In the fall of 1943 GRC welcomed the freshman, the Class of ’47. Under the guid- ance of Miss Ida Iversen, the students chose Jim Eggers, president; Bob Tallman, vice- president; Sally Roberts, secretary; and Arthur Powell, treasurer. The " Freshies” made known their ' enthu- siasm and perserverance by topping the magazine subscription drive. The first social function of the class was a Freshman mixer. Their initial school dance, " The Victory Stamp,” followed. 1945 Under the leadership of President Paul Voreacos, Vice-President Dave Roberts, Sec- retary Donna Stumph, and Treasurer Mack Foreman, the sophomores prepared for their Thanksgiving dance, " The Cranberry Crawl.” The class abandoned tradition to select its motto, flower, and colors in the sophomore year. The class history was recorded as it was made. 1946 As the junior year became a reality, the class elected Dave Roberts, president; Art Gasenica, vice-president; Mary Jane Quinn, secretary; and Joe Dolak, treasurer. Following the " Valentine Vamp,” the class 19 4 7 dance, the junior play, a comedy named " Help Yourself,” became another noteworthy success. Breaking tradition, the class held the prom, " Moonbeam Mist,” at Madura’s Danceland, June 7. 1947 Feeling that once again capable offiicers would help them accept the responsibility of leadership, the Senior Class named Ted Wiley, president; Mack Foreman, vice-presi- dent; Donna Faye Stumph, secretary; and Arthur Powell, treasurer. The class presented its Christmas dance, " Winter Wonderland,” without an orchestra. " Double Door,” a mystery drama, proved a hit. Twins Sally and Dave Roberts were the DAR winners. For the first time in GRC history co-vale- dictorians were named. They were Ted W iley and Bill Vobach. And so as another graduating class passes through the portals of George Rogers Clark, it will proceed into the hazy expectations of the future, but the Class of ' 47 has left its indelible mark in the history of its Alma Mater.

Approximately one hundred and forty couples danced from 9 until 12 p.m. to the music of Wally Humphries and his orchestra and enjoyed a very wonderful evening at this formal social dance. An over-all picture of couples dancing at last year’s prom present scene of gaity for those who attended.

These make up the main part of the extra- curricular activities at G R C. The students are encouraged to take part in some club , for it is the active person xvho gets ahead. Close relationship, cooperation, and responsibility are gained by participation in these clubs. It is through active membership that the students become true Pioneers of Clark. m Top row : Mikuly, McKibben, Franks, Gasenica, Benko, Camp- bell, Swenson, Kissen, Lynch, Kaban, Vladika, Gallagher, Gra- ham, Erickson, Horst, Skrabak, Hrapchak, Bednar, Biel, Theo- dora Economou, Andersen, Gir- man, George Second row : Goebel, Pappas, Ruebhausen, Hanusin, Gilman, Barrix, Scchauscn, Pierce, Shabi, Miller, Goginski, Feeney, Haugh, Easter, Peterson, Blood, Dudas, Fauth, Dolak, Freeman First row: Burgess, Quigg, Ray, Guy, Filas, Richlik, Miss Mar- garet Ide (sponsor), Olenus, Poppcn, Sampson, Sinai, Dzur- oveik, Sass Y- T E E N S The Y-Teens, one of the largest organizations in the school formerly known as the Girl Re- serves, seeks to uphold its members to the main purpose of the club — Service. Under the new point system, the girls are required to render some service to make them- selves worthy of membersrhip in this nation- wide organization. Ten members, seven seniors and three juniors, earned Y-Teen pins. A few of the club’s services included collect- ing old clothes for the needy, sending gifts to the orphans at Christmas, donating appropriat- ions for the reconstruction of the YWCA in war-torn countries, and presenting the annual Easter assembly, a movie entitled " Keys of the Kingdom.” An impressive candlelight service for the- initiation of new members was one of the high- lights of the club ' s social activities. Other social events consisted of an annual fall picnic, Hi-Y- Y-Teen party, and an after-game dance. For the first time night meetings were held monthly. During the month of March the officers and several members of the club attended the Northern Indiana Y-Teen Conference at Elk- hart, Indiana, which was sponsored by the Young Women’s Christian Association. The girls acquired various ideas which proved help- ful in planning the coming year’s program. Miss Margaret Ide, sponsor, and Miss Leah Booth and Miss Edna Howe assisted the girls in their projects and activities. Leading the members in their services this year were Sally Roberts, president; Madge Burosh, vice-president; Jo Ann Runick, secre- tary; Sally Lou Creswell, treasurer; Mary Linda Burnett, program chairman; and Roma Atchi- son, social chairman. New officers were chosen to head the group for the next year in the early part of March, Page Forty -six and they were installed at the April noon luncheon. Dorothy Adams, Eugenia Voreacos, Donna Ralph, Roma Atchison, Lillian Gasenica, and Bernadine Dolak were those chosen to the respective offices of president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and members-at-large. Senior members of the club attended a tea given by the intraclub council in the Hammond YWCA in May. All schools of the Calumet District were invited and they participated in the entertainment. The intra-club council of Hamond, which meets monthly, is made up of representatives of every regional school, and it is organized for the purpose of guiding and uniting the Y-Teens of the city. Bernadine Dolak was chosen as the Clark Y-Teen representative to attend a state con- ference this summer. This affair is held at Camp Mack in Warsaw, Indiana.

Under the faculty sponsorship of Mr. Paul Wilkinson and Mr. Arthur Erickson and the leadership of David Roberts, president, the club began its activities in September with the annual " Get-Acquainted Dance”. Late in the year a group of the members traveled to Kokomo for the State Older Boys’ Conference. The Hi-Y initiated two new Hi-y Clubs in Lake County — one at Edison East Gary and the other at Crown Point. In February the election of officers for the 1947-48 was held. Don Hannemann was chosen as the new president. In the spring the Hi-Y sponsored two assemb- lies and the annual home-room basketball tournament. They also held a Father-and-Son Banquet for the first time which is intended to become an annual affair.

During the school year the girls participate in many sports, including softball, soccer, basket- ball, and volleyball. Every year awards are given for sportsman- ship, athletic ability, and mental attitude. The girls receiving these awards are chosen by the members. The 1946-47 GAC was under the direction of Miss Leota Kenzie, sponsor; Mary Stavros, president; Bernadine Dolak, vice-president; Irene Pivarnik, secretary; Pat Davidson, trea- surer; and Veronica Vine, head-of-sports. In May the club sponsored its annual girls’ home-room volleyball tourney. This gave each girl in high school regardless of membership in the club an opportunity to participate in this intra-mural contest. Miss Margaret Ide’s home room " 221”, captained by Dolores Paunicka emerged as the champions by defeating the Johnsons, 31 to 19. They painted and hung the names and numbers of Clark and visiting basketball players in the gym as one of their service projects of the year. They also sold refreshments.

At the annual " In and Out” game, the out- going seniors, captained by George Peters, won a 47-39 victory over next year’s basketball candidates, headed by Ralph Porter. For the first time in the history of Clark the C Club, guided by President Paul Voreacos, sold football programs to the sport fans at the Hammond High-Clark game. This netted the club a profit and gave the spectators greater enjoyment of the game. Besides sponsoring the " Sweater Hop,” its yearly dance, the C Club brought a movie called " The Gladiator” to Clark and held the annual Father-Son C Club Banquet at which honors were awarded to outstanding players. JUNIOR RED CROSS An organization worthy of merit is Clark’s Junior Red Cross, under the new leadership of Mrs. Shirley Wilson, a former Navy nurse. " Cupid’s Night,” the first dance ever to be sponsored by the Junior Red Cross, was held St. Valentine’s Day and proved to be a great success. Proceeds from the dance went into the Red Cross fund. For its main project this year the club adopted a polio ward at St. Catherine’s Hospital. Red Cross members made the children’s holidays brighter by sending letters, nut cups and favors, and cookies. In co-operation with the local branch of the National Red Cross Council, two afghans were completed and educational gift boxes were filled and sent to European countries in addition to many other services. In addition to being president of Clark’s Junior Red Cross, Nancy Graham holds the position of being president of the city-wide Junior Red Cross Council. Top row.

The girls are assigned to work in the library either before or after school, or at noon. Each girl also works during a study period and one seventh period a week. The members’ duties are many and varied, and their aim is to make the library a service center for the school. A few of their duties are checking books in and out, repairing them, and passing out attendance slips. November 29 the Library Club held its first dance, " The Book Worm Ball.” The money earned from this dance is being used to buy books, magazines, and other materials for the library. The librarian, ten student helpers, and the principal of Morocco High School were the guests of Miss Lake and the members of the Library Club in April. The reason for their visit was to see how the work of our library is done, since it has been voted one of the outstanding school libraries in Indiana.

The Atom-mizers’ Club, guided by Don Hannemann, president, and Mr. Paul Wilkin- son, sponsor, first held organizational meetings at which they formed a constitution. In the course of the year members went on a tour through the Museum of Science and Industry during which several principles of physics were demonstrated and explained. The atom-mizers traveled to Youngstown Steel in the end of May. There they attended the open-house sponsored by the company and went on a sigh-seeing tour of the mill. Included in the tour were displays of products manu- factured there, views of the open-hearth and blast furnace, and other steps in the processing of steel. Also playing a vital part in the club’s activities was the showing of movies and slide films during the school term. These films had to do with subjects studied in the regular physics course. Along with the showing of movies, the club members gave individual re- ports on related subjects.

The framing of a constitution and the election of officers were its first accomplishments. Under the guidance of Mike Martich, presi- dent, members spent the majority of the year learning Morse Code and listening to reports about radio given by themselves. Arnold Studer and Dorothy James were elected vice-president and secretary-treasurer, respectively. The principles of radio were futher explained to them at Tuesday night meetings with the aid of various movies and new equipment for radio sets. Regular radio textbooks for individual study were also purchased. Some of the members traveled to the Mus- eum of Science and Industry one Saturday in May. During this trip they viewed the radar display which helped in the study of modern radio. Money was earned during the year through dues and the collection of waste paper by various club members.

Page Fifty -six LATIN CLUBS Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Rebekah Eddy, the Latin Clubs played an important part in the study of the language this past year, for it enabled the students to learn more about the Roman social life. The first year Latin Club e lected Andrew Jusko, president; Donna Kaban, vice-president; Mary Sinai, secretary; and Ella Rhee Kissen, treasurer. At the after-school meetings, the members played games which would advance their knowledge of Latin and gave reports about Roman life. They have had two parties, a Christmas and a Valentine party. The second year Latin Club had a late start and did not organize until February. The offi- cers were: John Krull, president; Jim Kessler, vice-president; Elaine Pavelchak, secretary, and Edward Svitek, treasurer. They ended the year with a social gathering for both clubs. As June rolled around to end this profitable year, each student could truthfully say, " Ego Latinam Linguam amavi.” Standing: Miss Hazel Holland (sponsor), Darby, Latiak, Kowalski, Blood, George, Kauchak, Erickson, Whitworth, Pappas, Wilson.

One was to enable students to further their study of biology and the other was to have its research be of service to the classes. The members of Miss Elizabeth Lyle’s club set up demonstrations which illustrated class work, gave reports, and did extra work for their own interest. They also collected material for slides for the projector. Field trips were made in the vicinity to study the birds and trees of the region. Meetings of the ABC (Amatuer Biologists of Clark), under the leadership of Miss Veva McAtee, were held to discuss and report on topics concerning biology. Quizz programs, movies, and an occasional social evening added variety to the meetings. Members made trips to the Board of Health, sewage disposal plant, the Field Museum, the Rosenwald Museum, and the Dunes State Park.

Many contests are entered by this group which is presided over by Lucille Murovich. The members participate in making art projects during their meetings. Ten of these amateur artists and Miss North- strum traveled to Indianapolis to receive awards for outstanding work in a nation-wide contest. Gold key winners included Martha Ann Whelan, non-objective design; Jeannine Hrap- chak, abstract design; and Edward Janosov, pictorial design. Frances Slater, Donald Widiger, Nancy Sutherland, Yolanda Pasztor, Joan Farley, Pay Dell Davis, and Alfred Blahunka received certificates of merit for their entries. Jeannine Hrapchak also won honors in the Senior High division of the Poppy Day Poster Contest sponsored by the local American Legion. Miss Northstrum attended the Western Art Convention in Cleveland in early May.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The distinct honor of being elected members of the National Honor Society was awarded to sixteen seniors and seven juniors this year, making the total membership twenty-nine, six present Senior members having been named to the NHS during their junior year. A fine character, ability to lead, render ser- vice, and rank scholastically in the upper third of the classes are the qualifications necessary for membership in the National Honor Society, which is under the sponsorship of Miss Pearl Yocham. Fifteen per cent of the Senior Class and five per cent of the Junior Class may be selected each year for this added honor. The standing members, chosen by the faculty in their junior year are: Donald Eddy, David Roberts, Chalmers Smith, William Vobach, and Ted Wiley. Each year an outstanding senior boy noted for scholarship, athletic skill, and fine sports- manship is the recipient of the Harold Zimmer Award, sponsored by this organization. This year David Roberts received the honor. Page Sixty STUDENT COUNCIL To give each student the chance of partici- pating in the school government, the Student Council was organized. This year it was com- posed of forty-six home-room representatives, under the leadership of Principal R. B. Miller and President Chalmers Smith. Through the co-operation of all Clark stud- ents the Council was able to administer and finish many projects. A paper drive with Vice-president Art Gas- enica as head was held during the first semester. The goal was 93,105 pounds of paper, and each student was asked to bring 115 pounds of paper. Many safety measures for which the safety committee, led by Chairman Paul Voreacos, was responsible were added to the school. Aquiring a cafeteria for the school was one of the main projects. A committee was organized to obtain money from the school board. The student panel was given more power, and new amendments concerning it were added to the constitution of the Council.

Page Sixty-three NATIONAL FORENSIC LEAGUE Dynamically striving onward, the GRC orators finished the year by reaching a new high in individual speaking. Under the guidance of Mr. Arthur Erickson, the students of interpretive speech were once again the recipients of several state honors in the National Forensic League State Contest. Among the individual winners in the state contest were Don Eddy and Raleigh Vobach, first and second place, respectively, in extem- poraneous speech; Ted Wiley and Bill Vobach, first and third place, respectively, in original oratory; Marilyn Smith, fourth place in dramatic reading; and Shelia Goldstein, fourth place in poetry. Ted Wiley and Don Eddy participated in the National Tournament held in St. Louis. Ted placed fifth in the national contest. He added a first place award to his achievements by winning the American Legion Oratorical Contest. Various speech students took part in other local contests. Bill Vobach won first place honors in the Northern Indiana District of Rotary International Convention after prev- iously taking four preliminaries.

The four boys comprising the team were Joe Rueff and Bill Vobach, who upheld the negative side, and Paul Voreacos and Ted Wiley, supporters of the affirmative. Frank Hill was alternate. In the state NFL tournament held in March the first team captured first-place laurels. The teams were members of both the Calu- met Debate League and Metropolitan Debate Union. Altogether they were in fifteen debate tournaments throughout the state during the season. Demonstration debates were presented as a program for clubs. They spoke for the Lion’s Club, the Whiting Woman’s Club, the Ameri- can Legion, and in an assembly.

This name can justly be applied to the GRC stage production staff. The boys and girls who put so much of their free time into this organization really deserve a great deal of credit. They are always ready to be called upon by teachers, students, and organizations to do some helpful task such as run the movie projector, pulling curtains for their programs, setting up scenery, effecting colorful lighting, putting on make-up, and delivering properties. This year’s stage crew was led by Senior Bradley Bodney, who finished his second year of active participation in production work. He has been succeeded by Mickey Horvat, a young freshmen entering the field of stage duties. Without this helpful organization it would be impossible to enjoy plays, movies, and other assemblies in our auditorium. The members of the stage production staff can earn letters by putting in 120 hours work on either lighting, scenery or make-up.

With Mr. Zevenhouse as its sponsor, the club consisted of 42 active members. Each boy in the club had assigned hours during which he performed his duty of safely guiding students across streets. Some members kept order among the fans during the football and baseball games. As a reward for its hard work, the club journeyed to Chicago to see a baseball game. Although never given much publicity, the Service Club has proved itself an invaluable organization at Clark, for this club serves the students and the faculty at all times. It has as its main duty the task of super- vising the noon hour of pupils who bring their lunches in the elementary grades. Under the able supervision of Miss Ellen Viney and Mr. Edwin Martin, who supervises the boys who are on hall patrol, the Service Club has become one of the most helpful organizations.

Under the direction of Mr. Carlyle Snider, the 63 piece outfit kept up its reputation for a colorful performance. The highlight of the winter season was the concert January 22. Dr. C. L. Kingsbury of Indiana University was the guest conductor. At the spring concert May 23, Nilo Hovey, former band director at Clark, led several numbers. Two student concerts were presented, one at Clark and the other at Roosevelt High School for an exchange performance. Fourteen soloists and seven ensembles re- ceived first-division ratings at the annual State Solo and Ensemble Contest at Whiting. Soloists were entered in the city contest also. The entire outfit played at the State Band Contest in South Bend.

Probably its most outstanding achievement was the concert with the vocal groups, flhich was presented in December. This was the first time in the history of the school that these two organizations performed together. The orchestra played exchange concerts at Whiting and Crown Point High Schools beside S T R A cr presenting an assembly program for the GRC student body. For " The Double Door’” and " the Clean-Up,” senior and junior plays, respectively, the musi- cians provided between-act music. They also provided accompaniment for solo and chorus numbers in the operetta, " The Golden Trail,” style show, and the Hammond City Music Festival. Individual members of this organization worked extra hard. A small ensemble performed at school functions and events in the com- munity. Three soloists received first-division ratings at the state contest. Several of the musi- cians attended Saturday night concerts of the Chicago Symphony with Mr. Eret, and the orchestra was a guest at a concert at John Mar- shall High School of Chicago. Their activities were brought to a finish after playing for Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises for the Senior Class of 1947. Page Seventy-one VOCAL MUSIC A group of musically-minded students make a pretty picture as they sing several classical and popular selections for an all-school assembly. Through unlimited co-operation the vocal music groups, under the direction of Miss Wil- ma Range, have brought more and varied musical programs to the people of the com- munity as well as the students of Clark. The vocalists presented a concert with the orchestra for the first time in the history of GRC, featuring a varied program of classical and popular selections. Following this, the classes participated in the annual Christmas program. " The Golden Trail,” a musical comedy, was given by the vocal department in March. It continued the fine reputation of such previous productions. This light operetta was set in southern California and took place during the early growth of America. The plot centered around " a stolen consignment of gold dust and the coveted Alvarado family jewels.” The cast consisted of cowboys, bandits, dashing Span- iards, and gay senoritas. The Double Sextet sang for a school assem- bly, for the elementary book fair, and provided music for a meeting of the Whiting Woman’s Club. The Triple Trio sang for a city-wide meeting of the PTA in Hammond and for a meeting of the Methodist Women’s Society of Christian Service. Before Christmas vacation both the groups carolled at Minas’ in Hammond and in the school halls. All groups of the Vocal Music Department participated in a Christmas assem- bly. The program consisted of a series of tab- leaus representing the first Christmas. It was directed by Miss Oza Cunningham and Miss Range, and it was also presented for the Parent- Vage Seventy-two Girls ' Choir Standing: Petiach, Benak, Butcher, Koliada, Lynch, Miller, Guy, Schuhrke, Nauch, Hlavach, Barton Seated: Murzyn, Dzuroveik, Pakan, Hodge, Gruener, Dolores Kowalski, Zekar, Mis, Pat Kowalski Tripple Trio, Double Sextet, Quartet Top row: Keist:r, Wilkinson, Rankin, Gilman, Swenson, Oak, Sotak, Blood Second row: Kammer, Eddy, Banks, Gasenica, Davidson, Gallagher, Kristoff, Scchausen, Huspck, Erickson, Miss Wilma Range (sponsor) First row: Darby, Mullins, (accompanists), Gruener, Horst, Olenus, Malloy, Burnett, Miller Vocal Music Teachers’ Association. Each group also won first division in the State Music Contest, which was held in Whiting March 29. The Boys’ Glee Club sang for an assembly, and the Girls’ Choir sang for a PTA meeting. Members of the vocal department have par- ticipated in the Music Festival at Hammond, the style show, the Thanksgiving assembly, and the Baccalaureate and Commencement Programs. Included in their social activities were the following: the Girls’ Choir entertained their friends at a supper-dance April 14, and the Vocal Music Department had a very enjoyable roller skating party at the Palace Roller Rink. i T 111 . ■», v- . jj LBSK : • Bfewi Jr 4 ' ) •% FgJ r_ Jlj ' 1 (J BOYS’ GIRLS’ GLEE CLUB Top row : Moor?, Stiller, Adams, Zahrndt, Svitek, Krull, Matus o, Kroush, Schuman, Rammer, Owczarzak, Cranor, Bollhorst, Rolph, Mish Third row: Zurbriggen, Jusko, Ingraham, Richlik, Bobalik, Antkowiak, Pazdur, Franko, Fisher, Korenchik, Bonczyk.

At all basketball and football games they may be seen leading the students in their cheering for the team. Pep assemblies were held for the cheerleaders and the Clarkites to practice as a unit. New yells and clever antics to brighten the games were made up by them. For the basketball season the cheerleaders wore new outfits. Their costumes were made up of blue fringed jackets and white skirts. The fine peppy spirit of the cheerleaders has aided in livening the games and encouraged both players and fans. They helped decorate the gym for the C Club’s dance and decorated and served at the athletic banquet. The 1946-47 varsity cheerleaders were Joan Beckman, Sally Lou Creswell, Elaine Osborne, and Betty Jane Petkovich. Next years’ squad consist of Sally Lou, Marilyn Brady, Pat David- son, and Eloise Haugh. Page Seventy-file m Of all the activities in which Clark students participate, athletics hold more interest than any of the others. Every year more than half of the boys enrolled in GRC take part in at least one of the eight inter-scholastic sports sponsored by the Pioneers. The GRC program also plays an integral part in providing a sports program for athlet- ically-interested girls. All of these factors help build strong individuals both physically and ment- ally, ready to take their place as tvorthwhile citizens of tomorrow. m V ' JFJS ■’in ' ■wti VARSITY FOOTBALL Halfback Ebbic Levitt, leading ground gainer and scorer, is helped off the field by Coach Arvo Antilla after receiving a slight injury. Pioneer gridders, after winning their first three starts, took a nosedive in the season’s final five contests and ended up the campaign with a record of three victories, three losses, and two ties. This record, however, does not tell the whole story, for only one game was lost by more than seven points — a 26-0 affair dished out by E.C. Roosevelt’s state champions. Highly under-rated at the season’s start, the Pioneers went on to win three straight games before tasting defeat. Gary Emerson’s over-con- fident Norsemen were the first foes to fall before th onslaught of the Antillamen, 7-6. Hammond Tech and E. C. Washington then met their Waterloo at the hands of the Clark squard, 26-0 and 6-0, respectively GRC’s forward wall, which averaged close to 185 pounds, proved itself one of the scrappiest lines in the state, and if it had not been hampered by injuries, Clark might have gone much farther than it did. Standing: Coach Arvo Antilla, Gasenica, McCoy, Render, Levitt Kneeling : Franchimont, Krausky, Economou, Voreacos, Eggers, Tumidalsky, Foreman All seven line regulars are lost through grad- uation. They are Mack Foreman and Prosper Franchimont, ends; Frank Krausky and Bernie Tumidalsky, tackles; Milan Manchak and Glenn Eggers, guards; and Paul Voreacos, center Krau- sky was voted most valuable player by his team-mates, and Eggers won the best mental attitude trophy. The outlook for next year is one of both joy and gloom. Everett Levitt, Cliff Kender, Jim Smith, Jerry Bauer, and Ed Siska all have had considerable backfield experience. Only Norm Banas, Ted Economou, and A1 Lorenzen, how- ever, have shown promise in the line. The 1946 Pioneer football squad was a fighting, determined aggregation — a team of which Clark rooters may well be proud.

The above record doesn’t seem very im- pressive at first glance; yet many team and and individual honors came to GRC during the 1946-47 cage season. Regular season victories over such perennial powers as Thornton Fractional, Hammond Tech, Gary Froebel, and Harvey Thornton gave Clark the reputation that it could fight it out with the best in the region had to offer. In the sectional tourney, the Pioneers downed Griffith and Tech by lopsided scores before dropping a close decision to Hammond High’s power-packed Wildcats. The fact that the Pioneers could bounce back from a humiliating defeat and dish out as much as they had taken was shown when they rolled over Valparaiso, 68 to 37. Just four days before the boys suffered a devasting set-back at the hands of State-finalist E. C. Washington, 67-30. Individual laurals must go to Captain George Peters and Prosper Franchimont. George copped Page Eight-two the individual scoring record for a single game by tallying 24 points against Gary Tolleston, while Prosper fell just four markers short of the season record of 272 points held by George Buksar, class of ’45. Only three boys — Peters, Franchimont, and George Bobos leave the cage ranks via gradu- ation, so everything points toward a stellar campa ign for Coach Ed Shields and his squad next year. Among those who will vie for starting positions on next year’s squad will be Howard Usselman, Ralph Porter, Ed Langohr, Jerry Bauer, Norm Banas, and Mike Andel. All of these boys shared regular assignments this last year. Coach Joe Franklin’s Settlers had a very sucessful season. The Clark reserve squad finished their campaign with ten victories and four losses. Outstanding players included Dick French, Everett Levitt, Clifford Render, and Loddie Labda.

Coach Joe Franklin’s boys annexed ten victories in 14 contests and showed depth as well as power. Coach Franklin used no set starting line-up but alternated about ten mem- bers of the squad throughout the season. Though Coach Emerson Aldrich’s Frosh-Soph and Freshman didn’t enter the win column as many times as did the Settlers, they showed the team play so needed in future varsity tussles. Among the outstanding players were Sopho- mores Bryon McClure and Paul Wetnight and Freshman Anthony Brenkus.

It was in a night meet that the Pioneers, coached by Joe Franklin, accomplished a feat which no other Clark squad in the past had been able to do, and that was defeat Gary Froebel. The Blue and White came through with flying colors to down the Blue Devils, 56 to 53. Richard Blastick and Ralph Porter registered the most outstanding performances of the year. Senior Blastick set a new school record in the mile run, clicking off the distance in 4:40:3, while Porter, a junior, qualified for the state finals in the 200-yard low hurdles by placing second at the sectional meet i n a school record- breaking time of 23.9 seconds. Throughout the season the Blue and White won two of five duel engagements and were victorious in one of four triangular affairs. Page Eighty-six Standing : Lourik (manager), Vladika, Zelenack, Vargo, Gronowski, Slingsby, Piotrowski, Langohr, Pctkovich, Hadley manager), Coach Henry Zevenhouse Kneeling: Bar.as, Usselman, Gulvas, Siska, Figler, Render, Dolak, Foreman, Labda BASEBALL The Clark baseball squad, tutored by Coach Henry Zevenhouse, turned in a fairly sucessful season. Joe Gulvas, one of the region’s better pit- chers, registered many fine performances and was an important factor in the team’s gaining a .444 pre-conference average. Such foes as Hammond High, Hammond Tech, Fenger of the Chicago City League, and Thornton fell before Pioneer practice-game scoring drives. In conference play the Blue-and- White nine tangled with many regional aggregations. Among them were E. C. Roosevelt, E. C. Wash- ington, Horace Mann, Tolleston, Lew Wallace and Whiting. The snappy infield play during the season was provider by Norm Banas, Mack Foreman, Cliff Kender, and Howard Usselman, while Outfielders Bill Figler, Loddie Labda, and Joe Siska did a fine job of keeping opponents to the minimum bases on outfield hits. Prospects for next year appear pretty bright for the Clarksters, since regulars Banas, Kender, Labda, and Usselman will return. CROSS COUNTRY - WRESTLING Under the able direction of Coach Ed Shields, Clark’s harriers won five of eight contests, losing only one of the six dual tussles in which they participated. They also placed eighth in the 19-school NIHSC meet. Mike Andel, Allen Doris, Fred Eberly, Eddie Langohr, and Ed Svitek, most consistent Pioneer performers, will see action again next year. The Blue-and-White grapplers, coached by Mr. Arvo Antilla, won six while losing four meets. They captured third place in the annual NIHSC meet and gained eighth position in the state event. Veterans Ted Economou, James Fauth, Roy Isberg, Dan Krc, Ernest Palagyi, and Dale Schroeder will return to bolster next year’s squad.

Five members of the eight man team will return to strengthen next year’s squad. The Pioneer tennis squad, coached by Mr. Edwin Martin, ended their season with a record of no victories, five losses, and one tie. Next year’s team, however, should provide strong competition for any foe, for only Everett Crippen and Bill Vobach will be lost via the graduation route.
