Text from Pages 1 - 148 of the 1951 volume:

from little acorns FOREWORD Like the acorn, the human soul From the infinitesimal start Assumes its place on life’s roll By living, taught to play its part. Before the tree stands the sun, Toward wider vistas there to lead. So the school guides the young one. From student, adult; the oak from seed. As earth and sun develop the tree And strength and vigor into its limbs flow Through wise guidance, studies, activities The maturing mind and body grow. As to the young oak in its forest world To the student, life’s magnificence is unfurtet — Joyce A. Phillip. also grow... 1)17-1 The Christmas customs enrapture the Orchestra unit vocal , I mint present the annual u gardeners plant the seed ... Our goal is to develop sturdy as the great oak, yet humble as the acorn. Glasses and friends, studies and teachers help us to grow and realize the great heights we can attain. These are the water and nourishment, the es senttals of life. As we grow we learn to work, Strong and straight the per¬ sonalities at Clark progress. Principal O. B. Hayward ■ overseer reaps his first crop As a garden needs an overseer to direct its growth, a school needs a principal to guide its progress. Mr. Orville R. Hayward has successfully completed his first year as principal of George Rogers Clark School. Previous to his appointment at Clark, he served at Irving School in Hammond. During the year several systems were revised by our new principal. We now have eight jjeriods, due to the inauguration of staggered lunch hours. The afternoon homeroom periods ' were also dis¬ continued. Students must now obtain passes upon leaving, or to enter a classroom. To lessen the work of the office staff, Principal Hayward gave the job of signing absentee excuses to homeroom teachers. The task of becoming principal of a strange school is not an easy one; there are many problems to solve. Mr. Hayward should be commended on the fine way in which he executed his duties. 12 BOARD OF EDUCATION Under the leadership of Superintendent Lee L. Caldwell, the Board of School Trustees is in charge of operating the entire Hammond school system. This year Mr. R. B. Miller, former Clark principal, was appointed to the position of as¬ sistant superintendent to Mr. Caldwell. Sealed - Mr. C. Scott, Mr. G. Gillett (At¬ torney), Mr. Caldwell (Superintendent), Mr. C. Smith (Treasurer). Standing — Mr. W. Thornton, Dr. H. F.ggers ( President ). Mr. A. Spoerner (Secretary), Mr. D. Cavil. TAKE A LETTER . ..

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY In the fall of ’47, we, the Class of ’51, planted ourselves into the rich soil of knowledge of GRC . . . Mrs. Rehekah Eddy was to lead us through our four years of growth . . . We got under way by electing as our leaders: Jerry Kozak, president; Diana Wiley, vice-president; Bud Golubiewski, secretary; and Alex Lourik, treasurer . . . Bringing our “Freshie” year to an end, we chose the appropriate name, “Greenies Spring,” and swung into the social world by sponsor¬ ing our first dance. Surviving the first year we continued on . . . The “sophies” chose Jim Gilman, president; Alex Lourik, vice-president; Joyce Phillip, secretary; and John Miskus, treasurer . . . Goblins, witches and bats were among the decorations of our Halloween dance, “Witches Waltz.” We were really growing up fast . . . Starting a very busy year as juniors, we selected as presi¬ dent, Steve Stavros; vice-president, John Miskus; secretary, Mella Kessler: and treasurer, Ross McCrea . . . Three of our major tasks of the year were the selection of our class colors (violet and yellow), our flower (tea rose)) and our motto (“No Mission Too Difficult-No Sacrifice Too Great) . . . Miriam Blood was chosen to record the class history for our two remaining years ... A comedy success, “The Man Who Came To Dinner,” was presented as our first class play. Sailing into 1950 on the S.S. Junior “Ship Ahoy,” a sock hop, we had one of the biggest dances of our career . . . Closing our third successful year, the long awaited Junior-Senior Prom was really “A Knight To Remember” ... It featured the music of Hal Miller and his orchestra. At long last we were seniors . . . Taking the leadership of the school into our hands, the Class of ’51 ! egan its final year by electing John Miskus, president; Dick Jones, vice-president; Angie Ambord, secretary; and Ross McCre a, treasurer. . . . Steve Stavros was elected as president of the Student Council after a hectic campaign . . . " The Song of Bernadette,” chosen as our Senior Play, will always be remembered as a moving drama. Sponsoring our fourth and last dance , “Arabian Fantasy” with Reynold Young and his orchestra, we brought to a close our social activities. . . . Joan Dolack, who was unable to continue school with our class due to ill¬ ness for the past two years, was able to keep up her studies and graduate with us. 28 m ' • ’• “ oSfoST i; »i : .

Through four years of high school growth our class has known a true friend in our sponsor, Mrs. Rebekah Eddy. From the very beginning she has shown active interest in all our activities. Always ready to share experiences with us, she will remain in our memories long into the future. When prob¬ lems arose, or advice was needed, Mrs. Eddy stood by with ready assistance. It is always hard to part with friends, but the moments of laughter, com¬ mittee work, and class meetings we have shared will always linger in our hearts.

Com petition runs high, but this is another aid in developing us into capable, outstanding citizens. Good sportsmanship are the big words stressed by coaches and stu¬ dents when our teams take the field. This is the spirit which exemplifies all our activities. 44 ver-say-die spirit of true Pioneers lifted the boys when they needed it most, s in the first half of the season at the hands of East Chicago Roosevelt, Thorn ■ nd High and Gary Tollcston, our boys broke into a three game victory streak, nipped Creston High, Hammond Tech and Horace Mann in this string but lost " year to their cross-town rival, Whiting. We swept ’em off tlieir feet. They took to the air, too. ' V " Hoosicr Hysteria” reigned supreme here at Clark this year. Our Blue-an l-Whitc cagcrs completed a fine season with a record of nine wins in twenty starts. Despite these losses, the Pioneers, with their highly respected fast break, proved themselves of explosive calilier. One of the first major upsets of the ’51 cage season was over E. C. Roosevelts’ Rough Riders in which the Pioneers showed their exceptional speed. The underrated Olarksters surprised even some of their own fans by fighting to the final game of the Hammond sectional tourney. Dyer, Crown Point and Noll were rolled over by the Clarksters on their way to the finals. Ken Quisenlicrry was greatly missed the last few weeks of the season because of a physical handicap.

They Dashed Ahead Track, a major spring sport, underwent a very favorable season last year. It was the most successful of the Pione er cindermen since 1946, under the guiding hands of Mr. foe Franklin and manager Mike Koleszarik. Among the accomplishments of the ' 50 squad was the copping of four duel meets. The Clarksters also gained fifth position down- state at the Indiana|Kilis relays. In addition, more men qualified for the regional meet than in any prev¬ ious year. New records for the 880- yard run and the 120-yard high hurdles were established by Bob Adams and Eugene Rolph respec¬ tively. Prospects for ’51 seem encourag¬ ing.

AFTER BIRDIES THEY GO In Africa sonic of the native tribes practice the strange custom of treating the ground with clubs and uttering wild, blood-curdling yells. Anthropologists call this a form of primitive self-expression. Here at Clark we call it golf.

IT’S A RACQUET An extra lesson and a night of enjoyment was added to the work of the tennis squad this season, when they attended the Bobby Riggs tennis show. The guiding hand of Mr. Gerald Royer lead them to new conquests for the year. The record consisted of one win and seven losses. They ranked fifth in the conference. Left to Right — A. Sullivan, I ' .

C Club GIRLS ENJOY SPORTS, TOO Girls found fun and exercise in the sports of the Girls ' Athletic Club. Softball, volleyball, basketball. Ixiwling and tennis were the main sports in which the girls participated during the school year. This year ' s officers were Rita Sparks, president; Anna Mae Sanusky. vice-presi¬ dent; Marie Kickenapp. secretary; Dorothy Saliga, treasurer; and Rose Rrazina, head of sports. Miss I cot a Kanzie sponsors the club. Ihe GAG sponsored its annual volleyball and its basketball tourneys for all girls interested. This offered a chance for all girls to participate in a sport, whether they were members of the dull or not. I ' pper Left - Let’s go gang. Upper liighl — (live us that hall.

THEY GOVERN US WELL Obtaining the necessary funds to purchase a public ad¬ dress system for the school was one of the main projects of the Student Council this year. Raising this money was made possible through a successful magazine drive spon¬ sored by the Council members. Promoting a system for noon hour recreation and estab¬ lishing a hall receptionist to greet and direct visitors to the school were projects undertaken by the Council. Dur¬ ing the second semester a sunshine club was organized. These members sent get-well cards to students who were ill and absent for a long time. Row One — M. Kiekenapp. M. Blood. H. Burosli, M.

CHEMISTS EXPERIMENT " Let’s reorganize the Chemistry Club,” was die begin¬ ning of this year’s club for chemists. The club consisted of mem lie rs of the chemistry classes. Miss Veva McAtee, chem¬ istry instructor, served as sponsor. The group met once every three weeks. Each member of the club was assigned to committees that were resjxmsible for planning the programs. Reports on the latest develop¬ ments in chemistry were part of every meeting. Panel dis¬ cussions, field trips to the Hammond filtration plant and Standard Oil and a “bunsen brunch” added variety to the programs. The Chemistry Club took its turn at entertaining the student body by presenting an assembly in the spring. The experimenters, junior grade, had an opportunity to express their artistic talent when Jack Fisher and John Jend el created a modern art monstrosity of glass, bent on their bunsen burners. 65 CREAM OF THE CROP " To the glory of character, To the strength of Leadership, To the power of wisdom. To the love of Service, We pledge our vows.’’ To (he ideals of the National Honor Society outstanding students accept the responsibilities of this great organiza¬ tion. Each year the faculty vole in the members upon the basis of Character, Leadership, Scholarship and Service. Three juniors and twenty-one seniors were elected. Ed Ranostaj. Boh Ringgcnbcrg and Katherine Roshashi were the juniors. Officers were the students elected as Juniors last year. SOMEDAY THEY’LL TEACH In its third year the Pioneer Future Teachers of America has increased its incmlrcrship three fold. Those eager to teach and those undecided, all profited by the knowledge they received under the guidance of Miss Pearl Yocham. The Pio¬ neers played host to the first I.akc County FTA convention. Panel discussion, movies and speakers helped the students explore the field of teaching, which made an active year complete. Shhh! Women at Work A merry Christmas was expressed in the dress¬ ings of our beautiful library. It was the ener¬ getic Library Club that did it all, too. Between searching for long lost books, repairing old books, pasting pictures for the beautiful picture file collection and checking books, the library assistances found time to keep the library the beautiful place it is. The girls kept the books neatly in order on the shelves and helped Miss Harriet Lake, li¬ brarian, and Miss Dolores McCampbell produce the eye catching bulletin boards on display. Money was obtained by selling greeting cards. Jury of Your Peers The Student Panel this year, as in the past, has tried to help Clark students co-operate with the rules and regulations set up by the student government. Student Council Vice-president Jack Fisher presided over the group’s activities. Two im¬ portant jobs were the supervision of the halls during the new double lunch periods and the trial of any student repeatedly misbehaving. The panel members also worked serving the refresh¬ ments at our Victory party. Reorganized this year, the Panel consisted of thirty-two students. They worked hard to im¬ prove our school. IT WAS A GREAT NIGHT T hey’re sturdy oaks now and as a noted philosopher once said of the tree life, As the twigs are Itcnt, so the tree shall grow. " Reverent and beautiful. “The Song of Bernadette” was the play presented by the Seniors to an appreciative audi¬ ence on November 17, 1950. The setting was in Lourdes, France in 1858, where Bernadette Soubirous, a simple peasant girl of fourteen, underwent an experience that was to change the entire course of her life. The play evolves around Bernadette ' s ever failing ef¬ forts to convince everyone that she did have a visit front the supernatural. Dignified Dean Peyramaic. as repre- sntalive of the church, had to Ite cautious about accept¬ ing Bernadette ' s assertion that she saw the Mother of God. A miracle was the climax and sufficient proof that Ber¬ nadette’s vision was real. Upper — Bernadette is comforted by her mother, after seeing vision. Center — Bernadette sees a j’ision of a Holy Woman, l.ower — The cast of “Song of Bernadette. " 1 STARS IN THE MAKING The cultivation of the theater em- Iw-ddcd these fertile acorns into the rich soil of imagination. On April 28. 1950, the Class of r l presented an exciting comedy in three acts, " The Man Who Came to Dinner. " The play centered around wealthy, egotistical. Mr. Sheridan Whiteside, who was invited to dinner by Mr. and Mrs. Krnest Stanley. When Whiteside ' s visit had to l»e prolonged because ol an injured hip. Mrs. Stanley was de¬ lighted and Mr. Stanley was a little more than annoyed. His visit created much chaos and a laughable comedy that everyone enjoyed. Miss O a Cunningham, dramatics director, and Miss Beatrice North- strum. art director, made the play a I ji irr — Mr. Manley objects to Whiteside.

Reviving an old policy, the Y-teens this year opened their membership to freshman girls again. This en¬ abled any girl in high school to Irecome a member of the organization. The girls were divided into four sections according to classification. The seniors were lead by Miss Marie Nordvig; juniors, Miss Leah Booth; sophmores, Miss Elizabeth Lyle; and Miss Betty Mansfield, a new spon¬ sor this year, directed the freshmen. Each group elected its own officers and held its individual meetings after school. They also had their own project of service. These groups, however, met together once a month for an evening of education and entertainment. The girls heard speeches for a better tomorrow, through¬ out the year. It was at these meetings also, that they discussed their future plans and parties. Hi-Y and Y-teen get-togethers were the outstanding events beside the annual fall initiation and the spring installation services. Among the projects undertaken by the girls this year were the stuffing of animals for Christmas gifts, selling wonder sheets and putting on the annual Eas¬ ter assembly. “To face life squarely,” their slogan, was one of the ideals the girls tried to follow. WE RE BUSY ARTISTS Helping the future artists of the world gain useful knowledge and experience along artistic lines, was one of the purposes of the Art Club. Under the leadership of Miss Beatrice Northstrum, the club offered its services to the school by painting the sets for our dramatic and musical productions. A trip to the Chicago Art Institute to view the Vienese Art Exhibit was the big event of the year. During the second semester, many forms of students’ works were submitted to scholastic contests. For the first time dark students received seven gold keys from the state contest in Indianapolis. DANCING IS LIVING ( fifier — I.raping — S. Walker. Sealed, Left to Hight — Af. Hlohm, It.

" They fly through the air with the greatest of ease.” This well descril es the energetic girls of the Mod¬ ern Dance club. Modern dance is a creative art which not only helps those participating keep physically fit, but also learu to interpret music and create dances they feel fit the music. Miss Leota Ken ie sjxmsored this group, which was newly organized two years ago. Since then, the girls have been asked to dance in music festivals, PTA gym demonstrations and school assemblies. For the first time this year the group participated in the annual spring concert presented by the vocal groups. Members were outstanding students in the gym modern dance class. These girls were asked to attend the weekly practices, and to I ecome active mem Iters if they were interested. Row One, Left to Right — J. Lai ink. B. Butcher, Af. Blolim, Af. Blolim, J.

OUR NEIGHBORS SOUTH OF THE BORDER And then there are those who l end their efforts and linquistic talents to learn Spanish. These students joined together once a month during class time to expand their knowledge of countries “south of the border”. Miss Hazel Holland, sponser, added extra interesting facts throughout the year, as she told of her recent trip to Mexico. This last summer Miss Holland toured by car through the old Spanish country with friends. Driving through the cities and villages, she learned many customs that she was able to desc ribe to the classes. The Mexican Hat Dance was presented for the students in a spring assembly. The clubs enjoyed a journey to Indiana Harbor to the Mexican feast. _— J. Ain. _ Auheson, E. Cieszkiewicz, M. Galbreath, , B. True, G. Eller, K. I chael. J. Hajducb. ___ _ .BUiiL.. J low Three — R, .

YOUNG HI-Y’ERS GROW AND DEVELOP INTO The Frosh-Soph group of the Hi-Y’s in their second year was sponsored by Mr. Edwin Martin. The group worked in preparing for the world in the future. Discussion groups and speakers aided the boys in becoming capable members. “To create, maintain and extend, through the school and community, high standards of Christian character” is the pledge of purpose this boys’ club carries Parties and meetings with the Senior Hi-Y were outstanding programs of the year. The boys also worked hard to make service a part of their growing plans which were formed early in the year. 76 CAPABLE SENIOR Hl-Y MEMBERS The calendar of the Senior Hi-Y was really well fdled with activity. The year began with the regular membership drive in September, followed by a district conference at Crown Point during the month of October. November brought the state conference which was held in Elkhart, Indiana, and then the annual initiation of new members. During the month of December, the boys collected food lor Christmas baskets. The coming of spring brought another district conference and the annual LET ' S MAKE AN ATOMIC BOMB!

The members of the service club, sponsored by Miss Ellen Viney, elementary students who spent their noon hours in school. The girls assisted in providing them with constructive entertainment in their room. I he Patrol boys proved faithful through wintry blizzards and spring showers. With protection of smaller children in mind, the boys, under the guidance of Mr. Edwin Martin, and Mr. Alvin Peterson, filled their duties admirably. Awards were given for special service. Cecilia Bunchek is the outstanding member of Service club with six years of service. Row One, Leh to Right Briggi, B. Shoemaker, P. Filz.. .. _. .... L. bean, W. Schuhrke. F. Perzenowik,. R.

Each job has its duties, and each stall member works hard to make his work the best. With this work there is also fun. Surprise parties and feasts when the jobs lasted into the night will be remembered. To raise money for much of the equipment, a dance was sponsored. A mimeoscope and type¬ writer were just two of the new pieces that were added. Because a scoop is what every paper wants, the staff worked into the wee hours on the sports page after an exciting football game. The page was ready bright and early the next morning, giving students the latest news. The burden of sujxrvising was lightened somewhat for Mr. Royer when Mr. Kermit Clyne came from Indiana University as a practice teacher in journalism. The staff strived to retain the All-American award received by last year ' s staff for best mimeographed high school news¬ paper in Indiana and national competition. During the second semester this year’s staff received an All-American NSPA award for the first semester’s work. Congratulations are in order to Sydney Schlaler and Marlene Goldstein, who, with the aid of Mr. Royer, earned this honor. This summer several of the staff members plan to attend a workshop at Indiana Univer¬ sity, Bloomington, Indiana. Mr. Royer taught there on the staff last summer. Upper — Business Manage) T. Hill. J.

Jeannette Latiak, subscription manager, worked through¬ out the year handling all the money for the pic¬ tures, books and materials. The advertising committee assisted in making the job a little easier. Headed by Ted Hill, they collected $1,015, which was something to Ire proud of. It took persistent effort to raise the amount over last year. These workers inaugu¬ rated the new idea of picture advertising. Jimmy 82 Brooks and Jim Fisher were high salesmen — and received gift books for their work. Rising prices were a big worry to Editor-in- chief Betty Powell and her staff. Rather than cheapen the highly-rated Powder Horn, every¬ one voted to increase the subscription price. The quality of materials remain the same as in last year’s book, which received a first class rating from the National Scholastic Press Association. The index in the back of the book is another new item that the picture names staff worked on this year. All students are listed alphabetic- ally, with the teachers and organizations in¬ cluded. After each person’s name are the pages on which he or she appears in the book. Although everyone did his job well, it would have been impossible to produce the book with¬ out the guidance of Mr. Gerald Royer, sponsor. Mr. Royer spent long hours in directing the work and helping put the book together. The staff wishes to acknowledge the co-opera¬ tion of Bodies ' ; Johnny, the photographer; the Fort Wayne Engravers; the Fort Wayne Typo¬ graphic Service Company; Defiance Printers; and the Kingscraft Cover Company for their work on the 1951 Powder Horn. JUNIOR RED CROSS = BETTER CITIZENS Who is it that cares for the Carmelite home? Knits afghans for the veterans ' hospitals? Sends books and magazines to St. Margarets hospital? And promotes world understanding? The an¬ swer is the Junior Red Cross, of course. The group this year began its successful term under the direction of Miss Harriet Colman. Diana Wiley, president; assisted by Dolores Krieger, vice-president; Irene Economou, secre¬ tary; and Bill Nearhoff, treasurer; carried out the plans of the organization. The guide to bet¬ ter citizens for the days to come, international service, national service and local service all were promoted by the students. Funds for expenditures were raised at a March movie, “Sitting Pretty,” which was presented at an afternoon assembly. Bob Guager, Bill Nearhoff and Betty Powell represented the Clark council on one of the city-wide broadcasts held during the year. Another big project was the Valentine party for the Carmelite boys. Committees worked on nut cups, food and entertainment for the occasion. Row One, left lo right - M. C. Miller. J. Duberk. D. Potis, S. Condo, K. Jurbala, D. Saliga, ]. Mudrak. M. F.. Bra mer. ].

Eager to retain the honor of being state cham¬ pions, the teams participated in over 150 rounds of debate. “The Plot to Overthrow Christmas” was their Christmas program. On November 30 the debaters traveled to Purdue university for a conference which 15,000 other delegates from Indiana schools attended. Barbara True, won a trip to New York to observe the United Nations in session. This trip was gained as a prize for her essay, “What the United Nations Means to Me.” Traveling by air from Hammond, Barbara had all expenses paid on hei three day trip. THE BAND PASSES IN REVIEW Yes! The band marches by with all its glory and splendor. Bob Gauger, as drum major, led the 76 players through all the colorful drills. Honor was brought to Clark when many of our soloists and ensembles received awards at contests Basketball was not forgotten as a loyal pep band showed up at many games. Two concerts were presented, the annual winter and spring concerts. At the latter awards were presented by Mr. Carlyle Snider, director. Other appearances were at school assemblies and pep sessions. Band parties were always envied by other stu¬ dents. The Christmas party in the handroom was full of frolic and fun. The young musicians feasted on pop, ice cream, barbecues and potato chips. Dancing and games preceded the movies in the auditorium. Edwin Blatnicky, president, supervised the or¬ ganization in its active year. Sixteen soloists and seven ensembles received firsts at the district contest in East Gary. From XS FORWARD THEY MARCH 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. the young musicians busily participated in the contests.

HERE IS A HOLIDAY FOR STRINGS Twenty-two students joined together to pro¬ duce the beautiful melodies the orchestra dis¬ played. Under the directorship of Mr. Darwin Eret, the group played for many school activities. One of our assemblies was their first appear¬ ance. They also played for the Junior and Senior plays and gave a joint concert with the vocal music department and the band. The String Ensemble and the Symphonette were two smaller groups taken from the orches¬ tra. These groups played for various clubs that wanted orchestra music. Members of the orches¬ tra also participated in the solo and ensemble contests. Nickie Ganshaw and Irene Singel brought the orchestra honors by winning a first division rating in the solo and ensemble contest in East Gary. Camille Dana, orchestra accompanist, was ac¬ claimed for her presentation of “Rhapsody in Blue” for the Spring Musical Review, given by the vocal department. The big event of the year was the joint concert with our band. In January the two groups got together, after weeks of practice. January 24, the orchestra opened the Pop concert w ' ith favorite " Hun¬ garian Comedy.” Nicholette Ganshaw played a violin solo, and Lorretta Nestor played “The Revolution Etude” by Chopin on the grand piano.

By participating in all musical events, these boys received a great deal of stage experience. The songsters also sang for the Hammond Music Festival.

WE RAISED OUR VOICES IN SONG The Boys ensemble was originally the Boys Octet, but it was enlarged this year to include four more boys. This was to allow more tal¬ ented male singers to have small group op¬ portunities. They joined their voices with the Girls En¬ semble on several occasions. What beautiful harmony! That’s our A Gapella Choir. Under the able direction of Miss Wilma Range, these singers represented a highly selected group from the less-experi¬ enced vocal students. To open their very successful year they sang for the PTA. Row One — ( ' .. Rexroat. N. Ronds. Row Two — At. C. Miller, M. Thompson. Row Three — R. Staler, (•. Harnett. Row Four — T. (Reason, R.

MUSIC FILLS THE AIR Miss Wilma Range, director of the vocal music department, worked hard to build these large groups of talent. Always full of new ideas and inspirations this busy little lady directed Winter Concert, the Christmas program and the Music festival. Girls’ Choir sang clearly in all the vocal presentations and programs. As you can see by their costumes these girls kept on the serious side of music. Fun and work combined to make the Mixed Chorus an interesting class and a fine sieging group. They resounded through the school every seventh period as they enjoyed both classical and popular music. Singing in the Winter Concert and spring musical were the high points of the year for the Mixed Chorus. Center — Director Miss Wilma Range. Lower Left — Directing — J. Snarich. Seated — .. Irvin, L.

The Polish folk dance, given by some of the girls, was one of these unforgettable dances in the Winter Concert.

The programs included reading poetry by the famous American and English authors, lis¬ tening to reports given by students on their favorite author, listening to records, reading plays and developing their ability for creative writing. One of the big projects of the year was read- Under the supervision of Miss Carolyn Lam¬ bert, the club had as its officers this year: Sophie Condo, president: Peggy Lou Nuckols, vice- president; Leroy Sparks, secretary; and Thespa Condo, treasurer.

A booster club among themselves, the girls made large signs heralding our teams, throughout the year. The new cheers will always be remembered. Cecilia, Carolyn and Jeanette had quite a time trying to hold up their spirits one evening. Starting out to a Clark-Fort Wayne game, the girls had car trouble. By the time they reached Valparaiso, the car was dead. Not being able to continue they left the car in a garage and returned home via bus. The ending to this story was that Janet, who was in another car, was able to get there and lead the fans. Left to Right — J. Latiak, C. Bunchtk, J. Savior, C. Burnett. MARJORETTES, TWIRL THAT BATON Shiny color paraded the football field as the majorettes marched with the band in white and blue uniforms. Through freezing weather the major¬ ettes faithfully appeared, leading spiritedly. Twirling at the annual Music Fes¬ tival with other Hammond school majorettes was a thrilling event for the girls. A new majorette was added to the group last fall. Sharon Herberg quick¬ ly learned the tricks and joined the other girls to perform their picture¬ sque drills. Left to Right — P. Murovich. P.

THEY’LL BE ANGELS IN WHITE A future nurses’ organization was started at Clark this year for the first time. Its purpose was to promote and learn about the different fields in a nursing career. Sponsored by Miss Patricia Hilliard, school nurse, the twenty-two members planned the meetings around nursing advantages. A movie on physically handi¬ capped children, speakers from various medical fields and trips to local hospitals were on their program. Next year the girls hope to continue to grow and explore the field of nursing. 97 | min 1 W ' Tf‘ i m H VV Hg h| _ " For the Smoothest Dancing this side of Heaven " n MADURA LJancelanL) Dancing Tuesday, Saturdays, and Sundays Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter!!
