IPs V m Re . i fUjFi • • Little did man realize when dedication he first use the log as a primitive means of rolling heavy stones, that he was establishing the first in a long series of evolutionary processes which would in time enable trains and automobiles to fly across rails and highways at speeds far beyond his remotest conception. To those who have preceded us and laid the foundation for all that Twentieth Century man has been able to accomplish, and to those who will follow us, making our lives even richer through the further development of what we have thus far achieved, we of the 1949 POWDER HORN staff proudl dedicate our book.

One is sufficient to see what great progress has been century; a time backward look made in every field of human endeavor. Because we of the 1949 Powder Horn staff are acutely aware of the tremendous advances made in these past years in every facet of our culture, we have tried to bring to light the thing that has been the basic factor in these accomplishments . In progress probably no one invention has had more influence than the wheel. History owes much to this ingenious contrivance, and through it we are to see miraculous advancement in the future. In choosing the evolution of the wheel as our central theme, we have tried to catch some of the spirit of this progress. cAdivitiei . . . provide indispensable cogs in the wheel! c Athletic . . . keep the wheels running smoothly! Per onalitieA . . . Attaining a sense of in- dividual responsibility is an ultimate goal for each Clark student. The classes he attends and all of the persons with whom he daily comes in contact, help to develop his charac- iis cultural backgroumlxVfwse lead him to realize k ral from citizens of the future. valuable Clark’s personalities, functioning with a co-operative com- munity spirit, represent a real, driving force, which makes our wheels go ' round. Page Eight J 1 1 Cl t LOU • • • With Principal R. B. Miller at the Pilot Wheel, GRC has en- joyed smooth, firm, imaginative handling of its adminstrative functions and operating problems. Mr. Miller has been the principal of Clark since it was founded in 1932, and it has been largely due to his efforts during these past seventeen years that Clark has moved steadily toward the high standing it now maintains. Quidance CounAelord . . . Miss Pearl Yocham and Mr. Paul Wilkinson together together sharee the office of guidance counselor. For their helpful advice and encouragement to all students in the planning of their courses, and for the counseling of graduating seniors, on their choice of vocation or college, they deserve the thankfulness felt by all. In this most important task, the guiding of all curricular activities of Clark students, our counselors have shown both zeal and proficiency.

Scott, (secretary) Mr. Columbus Smith, (treasurer) Dr. Henry Eggers Mr. Archie Spoerner of education • • • The Board of Trustees, under the capable direction of Superintendent Lee L. Caldwell, has a great deal of influence on every student’s school life. Through its direction of school funds for the entire Hammond system, the board has made it possible for Clark to use facilities which provide both educational and recreational benefits. Office St a •• • Mrs. Mabel Brown, Miss Elsie McCrea and Mrs. Patricia Sheets constitute Clark’s office staff. Their skill, friendliness and willingness to be of service to the students and faculty provide a pleasant atmosphere that will long be remembered. OFFICE STAFF Miss Elsie McCrea, Mrs. Mabel Brown, Mrs. Patricia Sheets Page Eleven It has been largely through the work of its ex- cellent teaching staff, that Clark has been able, year after year, to turn out graduates best equip- ped to meet the demand of adult life. We may look to our faculty with pride, not only because it functions harmoniously as a unit, but also for the close co-operation it achieves in its work with each student.

Page Fifteen THE SENIOR CLASS 1946 . . . The wheels of progress began rolling for the ’49ers when Miss Emily Johnson was appointed class sponsor. Driving the covered wagon at the start of their journey was Darrel Quigley, president; assisted by Lodie Labda, vice-president; Mary Pappas, secretary; and Paul Wetnight, treasurer. Their first stop was the dance, " The Babies ' Bawl,” which indicated their soon to be famous team of spirit and skill. 1947 . . . Emerging triumphantly from first year difficulties, they pushed forward under the leadership of Fred Eberly, president, Norman Banas, vice-president; Evelyn Latiak, secretary; and Art Clark, treasurer. " Seek and ye shall find” was appropriately chosen the class motto. Reveal- ing their appreciation for beauty, they selected the American Beauty rose as their flower and red and silver as their colors. 1948 . . • After a two year period of traveling, the class established its settlement. Town officials elected were: George Argus, president, Louis Biedron, vice-president; Betty Zehme, secretary; and Conway Hotchkiss, treasurer. A community shindig, " The Breather,” was held to celebrate their safe arrival. Heralding their third anniversary, they promenaded at " Symphony in Gold,” and presented the comedy, " Nothing But the Truth.” 1949 . . . Re-electing George Argus president, the colony also chose Jim Figler vice-president, Roberta Cherechinsky secretary, and John Hertzfeldt treasurer. They gave their second dramatic production, " Our Town,” followed by a December dance, " White Magic.” The true Pioneer spirit returned, however, and restlessness dominated the little group. Seeking adventure and future happiness, they moved forward toward new horizons. Standing: George Argus (president), John Hertzfeldt (treasurer), Jim Figler (vice-president) .

HUB OF THE WHEEL J iji Ctnily £. jjoknAon When several people wish to function harmoniously as a group, a prime requisite is someone who can lead and advise them. So it is when a class enters high school. Before it can begin to act as a body, it must have the guidance and advice of a sponsor. The appointment of Miss Emily E. Johnson to guide the Class of 1949 proved, as time progressed, to be the one factor most directly responsible for its success. Through her natural friendliness and desire to help, Miss Johnson became the friend of every class member. Rather than standing in awe of their sponsor, they came to love and respect her. In general, as 1949 draws to a close, the Seniors find that through their acquaintance with her, they are richer and more understanding toward those around them — better qualified to take their places as adults in the demanding world of the future. Pa c T birty-tbree Page Vbirty-four iJ ' lA.HlO’l (f LcLlJ, • • • " Nothing But the Truth,’’ a three act comedy by James Montgomery, proved to be a real success when produced by the Class of ’49. With a complete double cast, it was presented on April 29-30, 1949. The plot revolved around a young man who bet a friend that he could tell the absolute truth for 24 hours. He tried to conceal this from his fiancee, getting himself into some very trying situations. The cast could not have put forth this suc- cessful production without the efforts of Miss Oza Cunningham, dramatics director; Miss Beatrice Northstrum, art supervisor; Mr. Darwin Eret, orchestra director; the stage production staff; and Miss Emily Johnson, class sponsor, who managed the business affairs. MABLE TELLS HER STORY: TOP: TO EACH HIS OWN! BOTTOM: ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS WELL! Senior Play . . . " Our Town,” a modern dramatic classic, made Clark history, as the ’49ers again displayed their talent. Staged in three acts, the play provided both laughter and tears. Rollin Shoemaker, as the stage man- ager, explained throughout the play, the background, setting and characters of the little New Hampshire town, Gr over’s Corners. The first act was centered about a typical day in the life of its residents, and the second in- volved the love and marriage of Emily Webb and George Gibbs, the two central characters. The last act showed acceptance of death and awaiting of the unknown. Under Miss Oza Cunningham’s able direction, the Senior class left an unforgettable mark in the history of the school and the community. PUPPY LOVE? TOP: UNTIL DEATH DO US PART!

Among the projects the group undertook were teaching part time in the elementary grades, telling stories over the radio and at the branch libraries and sponsoring an educational film for a student assembly. j National J4onor Society, Character, scholarship, leader- ship and service are four essential spokes in the wheel of life. They also comprise the qualities necessary for eligibility to membership in the National Honor Society. Under the direction of Miss Pearl Yocham, the NHS was composed of 15 per cent of the Senior class and 5 per cent of the Junior class. These students are selected by a vote of the faculty each year. Members of the Class of ’49 elected in their junior year include Bruce Cox, presi- dent; Mary Pappas, secretary-treasurer; and Roy Wilson, vice-president. Row 1 — Pappas, Kristotf, Kissen.

The hub around which student legislation revolves is the Student Council. This 48 member group consists of representatives from the junior and senior high homerooms. Under the direction of Bruce Cox, president; Ed Svitek, vice-president; Mary Pappas, secretary; and Paul Wetnight, treasurer; it began its activities early in the school year. Through the work of the council, Clark became the " foster parent’’ of two schools in Bremen, Germany, supplying them with a few material necessities of progressive education —a small step toward international understanding. A dance committee consisting of five student members planned a calendar of dances to be pre- sented by various classes and organizations during the year. Among the other functioning committees were the safety committee and the committee appointed to organize and plan a booklet describing the numerous and varied extra-curricular activities available to Clark students.

Student Panel . • The imaginary wheel of judicial government advanced, through the cooperation of students and faculty, from the crude stage of mere thinking to the modern one of efficient judgment for wayward students. A panel consisting of 85 students, which was directed by Student Council Vice-president Ed Svitek, acted as a court in trials for cases of tardiness, absenteeism and other misdemeanors. Two leaders were appointed for each period and included George Argus and Gloria Darby, first period; Wilma Ellington and Evelyn Latiak, second period; Sheila Goldstein and Mary Pappas, third period; Geraldine Obuch and Joe Wichlinski, fourth period; Lodie Labda and Gloria Lukas, fifth period; Erwin Campbell and Raleigh Vobach, sixth period; and Fred Eberly and Bill Ring- genberg, seventh period. This form of representative government provides an opportunity for a large number of students to participate in the disciplinary phase of school administration and promotes a greater sense of responsibility.

Jorum Club • • Guest speakers, movies and discussions were presented this year by the Forum Club, under the direction of Mr. Arthur Erickson. Outstanding programs of the year included Miss Elma Kahn, Clark kindergarten teacher, who told the group of her trip to Europe the previous summer; Mr. Erickson, who discussed the ex- periences of his trip to Alaska; and Miss Martha Labda, who presented an account of her nurs- ing work with the Navajo Indians. A series of documentary and commercial films depicting various social situations and attitudes was shown to the group as background material for their work in modern problems.

Since the theme of the club is service, the girls were requested to complete at least one project in order to make themselves worthy members of the organization. A merit point system proved successful in determining attendance, committee work and voluntary jobs. Upon receiving 150 points the girls were presented with a club pin. The group accomplished a great deal under the leadership of Mary Pappas, president; Ella Rhee Kissen, vice-president; Evelyn Latiak, secretary; Juanita Freeman, treasurer; Altha Brown and Margaret Kristoff, members-at-large; and Miss Margaret Ide, sponsor. Miss Leah Booth, Mrs. Rebekah Eddy and Miss Edna Howe, faculty members, gave their time to help the girls with their work. Some of the projects of the year included the collection of clothes for the people of Europe; the sale of " forget-me-nots”; the distribution of Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets; the making of an afghan, mittens and a PTA blanket; and the presentation of the annual Easter assembly. This year the initation services and the annual picnic were combined and held in October as a beach party. Other important events sponsored by the group were the Y-Teen dance, a Hi-Y and Y-Teen banquet and a Y-Teen conference held here at Clark. Through this last function the girls became more closely associated with girls from other schools in die Calumet region. Page Fifty-three Jtjibrary, Club • • Attending weekly classes in library instruction, mending and shelving books, taking library and study hall attendance and writing over-due book notices are all mani- festations of the main objective of the Library Club — service. The club’s annual Christmas party, held on December 16, 1948, was highlighted by an exchange of gifts and the sponsoring of the library Christmas tree. During Book Week the library displayed a group of new books purchased with a one hundred dollar gift of the Class of 1948. This year the group participated in the annual magazine drive and sold greeting cards as fund raising projects. The larger part of the money raised by the Library Club was used for the pur- chase of books.

Most of these were done by members of the Art Club, sponsored by Miss Beatrice Northstrum. Competition entered by the club members included the American Legion Poppy Poster Contest, the " Scholastic” Art Contest, and the Lake County Contest. With Constance Smith as president; Marlene Fehrman, vice-president; Lola Zeleznik, secretary; and Frances Slater, treasurer, the group worked on original Christmas cards and sponsored a Mardi Gras dance with a Sadie Hawkins Day theme to raise funds.

Page Fifty-six Spanish • • When members of the Spanish Club, guided by Miss Hazel Hol- land, begin a conversation with " Como esta usted?” it is evident that progress is being made in the study of the language and quaint customs of our Latin American neighbors. Writing letters to boys and girls in Mexico and Central and South America was one of the projects the members of the club completed. Playing games, singing, dancing and reading the Spanish newspaper " LaLuz” were activities enjoyed during the regular monthy meetings. Students of both classes attended a fiesta at Hammond High School in the early part of the year and the club wound up its activities with a Spanish dinner consisting of hot tamales, tacos, tos- tados, enchilades and leche.

As it has always done in the past, the Hi-Y worked hard this year to fulfill its theme and purpose, " To create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian living.” Three important conferences were attended by members during the year. The first of these was the Fall conference held in LaPorte in November. In December several boys traveled to Evans- ville for the State Hi-Y conference. In the Spring they attended the District conference in Michigan City. Bruce Cox fulfilled his duties as president for the year. The other officers included George Argus, vice-president; Richard McClaughry, secretary; Jack Piotrowski, treasurer; and Mr. Paul Wilkinson, sponsor.

The Triple Trio and the Double Sextet brought honors from the District contest in Hobart, Indiana. Both of these groups sang for the Northern Indiana Art Patrons association. All of the vocal music organizations sang in the annual winter concert given with orchestra, the Christmas assembly, the Musical review and the Hammond Music festival held in May.

Stage Crew • • Because an increasing number of organizations use the stage facilities at one time or another, it is necessary to have a dependable group of students to operate these. This year the Stage Crew, consisting of thirty members, was under the direction of Miss Oza Cunningham and student stage manager Don Zurbriggen. " Service” being the motto of the group, the staff helped each sponsoring organization in every major production presented on the Clark stage. Knowledge about stage setting, lighting and make-up was gained by Stage Crew members this year; and after completing a specific number of hours, they were eligible to receive letters.

Pa Seventy-two Photography, Club . . . The Photography Club, to encourage the interest of amateur photographers, was begun in 1948 under the sponsorship of Mr. Frank Concialdi. The club, choosing Bill Ringgenberg as its president, spent the first semester in organization. After the necessary equipment was available, work on picture development was begun. As in the past, various students took shots of the games and objects of interest and turned them over to the Powder Horn staff. Pages have always been set aside for these shots, and it was primarily to further this project that the Photography Club was organized. The high point of the club’s activity was the dance they presented on April 1. Right Foreground : Kaminsky. Row 1: Jerzyk, Wretsky, Schlater, Wiley, Hunter, Vavrck, Brown, Soltis, Stcrbavy.

Cheer leader A . . . The varsity cheerleaders have a great deal of responsibility in backing Clark’s team to victory. It is through their hard work and direction that the cheering section becomes a very important part of all athletic contests. For the football season the girls wore blue skirts and white sweaters. New uniforms of blue- fringed boleros and skirts with white blouses and blue moccasins added to the color of the Pioneer basketball season. jUajorette3 . . . Fronting the band and performing with the group at football games are the important jobs of these girls. Dressed in white satin uniforms trimmed with gold braid, white hats and leather boots, the majorettes added a colorful note to the games.

The members of the GAC have the opportunity to take part in intramural baseball, basketball, bowling and volleyball. The group was led by Betty Zehme, president; Ruth Brazina, vice-president; Janice Hrapchak, secretary; Margaret Furtyo, treasurer; and Mary Ann Palenik, head-of-sports. Miss Leota Kenzie, girls’ physical education director, acted as sponsor. As a service project the club members painted signs with the names and numbers of the basket- ball players and sold refreshments at our home basketball and football games.

C Club . . • The C Club, headed by Paul Wetnight, president, finished another eventful year. The members played an important part at all home football games, selling programs to increase their treasury. As in the past, the club sponsored the annual " In and Out” game at the end of the basketball season and presented the movie, " Smith of Minnesota,” as additional fund-raising projects. On May 19 the club held its annual Father-and-Son Banquet at which time awards were presented to outstanding athletes by Coaches Arvo Antilla and Joe Franklin, co-sponsors of the group. Norm Banas received a double honor in football when he was presented with both the mental attitude and the most valuable awards. Jack Barnett was the recipient of the mental attitude in basketball, while Mike Andel was named most valuable in this sport. The free throw award went to Norm Banas, who also was chosen to receive the C Club all-around award. Boys declared most valuable in the other sports were Oliver Campbell, wrestling; Ed Svitek, cross country; and Ralph Porter, track. Page Seventy-eight Halfbacks: E. Clark, Brenkus, Lourik, D. Vrabcl, Walendowski, J. Smith (captain), Bollhorst. Page Seventy-nine U J Guards: Schochnecht, Vargo, A. Clark, Horwath, Krull. GRC’s gridders started the season with the impressive record of five straight wins. The Antilla- men went on to taste defeat, however, in their last four contests. The Clark team was one of the lightest in the region, but what they lacked in weight was more than equalled in fighting spirit. Clark’s varsity began on the victory road by downing Gary Tolleston, 26-14. Then came Morgan Park, East Chicago Washington, and Hammond Tech, all of whom met defeat at the hands of the smooth-rolling Pioneer grid machine. The Blue-and-White eleven then journeyed to Mari- nette, Wisconsin, where it polished off the highly rated Marinette aggregation, 19-6. Tackles: Dzurovcik, A. Smith, Gronowski, Piotrowski, Thompson. Page Eighty Ends: Dubeck, Franklin, Tiemersma, J. Vrabcl, Drach, Hotchkiss. Last year s state champs, East Chicago Roosevelt, finally broke the five game winning streak by shellacking the Clarksters, 20-0. The Pioneers lost their next tussle to Hammond High, but showed great spirit by holding the Whiting Oilers, NIHSC champions, to a mere 13 points. The Clarkites received their final defeat of the season in the Western division playoff game with Gary Tolleston, 14-7. With ten members of the first team lost via graduation, next year’s team will lack experience; however, it should prove to be a small and speedy outfit. Damon Franklin, end, will be the lone veteran, while backs Lyndell Bollhorst, Tony Brenkus, Earl Clark, Jonathan Kuzminski, John Leisge and Alex Lourik will carry the point making burden. The forward wall will be centered around Jerry Kozak. Quarterbacks: Figler, Wetnight; Centers: Helm, Banas; Fullbacks: Siska, Kuzminski.

The Blue-and-White reached the win column when it trounced a highly-touted Lew Wallace a £g re S at ion by a score of 51-34 in the Pioneer goalery. The boys from Robertsdale showed their Labda Banas Andel . Page Eighty-three Brenkus D. Vrabel J. Vrabel fighting spirit and ability to come back when they embarked on a five game winning streak in the latter part of the season. Their victories included wins over such regional powerhouses as South Bend Washington, Gary Horace Mann, Hammond Tech and Gary Froebel. Two decisive victories in the Hammond Sectional tournament definitely tagged the Pioneers as championship contenders. The Shieldsmen defeated Hammond Tech by a 42-39 score in the opening game of the sectional. They rolled over Noll Central, 81-43 before losing to Hammond High, state semi-finalists, by a score of 44 - 40 . Barnett Franklin Figuly Page Eighty -four Only three boys, Tony Brenkus, Damon Franklin and Jerry Kozak, will return to form the nucleus of next year’s varsity quintet. The six varsity cagers who will be graduated in June are Mike Andel, Norm Banas, Jack Barnett, Lodie Labda, Don Vrabel and Jim Vrabel. Clark’s " B” squad, coached by Mr. David Hein, garnered a season’s record of six wins and three losses. Some of the reserves who will undoubtedly lend their assistance to the Pioneer cause next year include Orest Catchur, Jerome Figuly, John Leisge, Alex Lourik, Kenneth Quisenberry, Eu- gene Rolph and Steve Stavros.

With only five lettermen returning from last year’s squad, the Pioneer cindermen expe- rienced a mediocre season. The Clarkites participated in eight outdoor meets and five indoor contests. Their outstanding in- door meets included the Indiana Invitational at Bloomington and the Howe High School meet at Purdue. Several of the outstanding performers and their respective events are as follows: Bob Adams, 880-yard run; Mike Andel, quarter mile, broad jump and high jump; Lyndell Bollhorst, dashes; Earl Clark, dashes; Damon Franklin, shot put and quarter mile; Eugene Rolph, hurdles; Ed Svitek, mile run; Steve Vargo, shot put; Paul Wetnight, pole vault; and Dick Whitworth, hurdles. The outstanding individual performance of the campaign was turned in by Paul Wetnight, who set a new Clark pole vault record with a jump of 1 1 feet 2 inches at the Hammond Invitational meet. With several members of this year’s squad returning to bolster next year ' s aggregation, Coach Joe Franklin can look forward to a successful season.

Although the Blue-and-White thinly-clads did not show any team strength, they did find a capable performer in Senior Ed Svitek. Ed captured a first place in the Hobart Invitational meet and third and fifth places in the sectional and con- ference meets, respectively. The future looks bright for the Clarkites, since five lettermen in the form of Bob Adams, Jerome Figuly, Richard Senchak, Dick Whitworth and Ed Zahrndt will return to bolster next year ' s squad. Ed Svitek will be the only member lost via graduation. Page Eighty-eight UJredtlu • • • The GRC wrestlers completed this year’s campaign with a record of three wins and eight losses. They won their first match by defeating Hammond Tech, 36-20. Their second and third victories were garnered at the expense of Muncie Central and Thornton Frac- tional, respectively. The outstanding individual performance turned in by a Pioneer wrestler was the second place honor which Oliver Campbell gained in the state ratings of his division. Next year should see a large but inexperienced squad, since the team will lose Erwin Campbell, Oliver Campbell, Captain Art Clark, James Fauth, Bob Malone, Don Miles and Jack Piotrowski via graduation.

The team also found capable performers in Joey Bilka and Buddy Golubiewski, both of whom were first year men.

Dancing is not only a form of exercise, but it gives you poise and alertness. Everybody should dance, young and old. Good dancers are usually good humored, sharp mentally and trim physically. Self expression is a by-product of dancing. 1. Acquire proper position. Hold your partner slightly in your right arm, not tensely. Your body should be parallel with hers, unless in a so- called " open position,” in which case you both face the same direction side by side. Start with the left foot. 2. Develop a strong lead. Lead her with the right hand and slightly with the left. You are the leader. Timid leaders usually finds himself following his partner, which causes 90% of the bumping on the dance floor. Bumping calls for apoligies so remem- ber to lead firmly with the right, light with the left and somewhat with the shoulders. These three make good coordination. }. Don’t dance monotonously. Learn to turn as much one way as the other. For some turning around right is a bit more difficult than turning around left. Once you acquire both turns you will never forget them. Dancing is never forgotten. You can bore your partners to tears with endless march, march around the dance floor. Learn to combine steps, but care should be taken not to overdo it either. 4. Develop sense of rhythm. Some people have more rhythm than others. If you lack it, guard against being ahead of the rhythm or behind it. The blame can sometimes be the orchestra’s rhythm section.
