INDIANA Marlene Seehausen, Editor-in-Chief Arlene Bayus, Associate Editor Joe Gerba, Business Manager Joe Lesniak, Subscription Manager Jane Spillar, Photography Editor Bob DeBruyn, Sports Editor Marjorie Melaven, Art Editor Carole Bergman, Literary Editor Gerald Royer, Sponsor Hammond Public Library R Here is the George Rogers Clark story . . . history now. ... It winds through many long miles, over twisting and interesting trails ... up and down the corridors, in and out of the classrooms. . . . Some- times the way has been hard and difficult, other times happy and full of pleasures. ... As in the days of old when Pioneersman Clark explored the wilderness in his soft-footed moccasins, the staff wishes to take you on a historical trip, continuing in these immortal footprints . . . commemorating the 1952 history of Clark school and its students . . . one that those of us who were involved will never forget . . . OUR JOURNEY BEGINS WITH Upper Right — The Freshmen are eagerly registering for the coming semester. Lower — College Night, which was held on November 15, proved helpful for students anticipating a college education. REGISTRATION AND LATER LEADS TO EVENTS 4 Refreshments are usually a must for these girls during the half of the football games. It must be Friday. Why? Everyone is reading the Pioneer News. Since the bus was late for the State Con- ference at Conner sville, the Hi-Y boys de- cided to use Glen Raymond for a means of transportation. Upper — Everyone seemed to enjoy dancing at the Senior Dance, " Yuletide Interlude.” Lower — Melodies filled the auditorium on December 13 when the vocal music department and the orchestra presented a Winter Concert. MANY ACTIVITIES Center — The GAC girls realized that making decora- tions for The Big Hearted Dance” was quite a task. Lower — Starving students seek refuge in the cafeteria. When Clark ' s Pioneers clashed with the Tollestons Raiders at Whiting ' s new gym, the Booster Club, like always, was present to stir the team to victory. « 1 The cast of " Suspect” in action. Tense and mysterious was " Suspect, " the first all-school play pre- sented at Clark on November 16, 1951. Curtain time found the audience at Polcurn, Cornwall, where Mrs. Smith (Jane Madsen), an eccentric widow, lived with her son, Robert ( Bob Guy). Mrs. Smith had good reason to behave strangely. While a young girl, she had been accused of murdering her parents with an axe. Because of the testimony of a faithful servant, Goudie MacIntyre (Peggy Lou Nuckols), she was acquitted. TRAGEDY VERSUS However, her past was brought into the open by a week-end guest, Sir Hugo Const, a newspaper owner, who had covered the trial. Dr. Ren- dle (Dick Studer), the father of Robert ' s fiancee, and Hugo Const were close friends. Mrs. Smith cleverly convinced the men of her innocence, but the audience sensed the real truth about Mrs. Smith. Suspense is portrayed through the facial expressions of the actors and actresses. This hilarious comedy featured the antics of the authors, Emily Kimbrough and Cor- nelia Otis Skinner, during their first ocean voyage and at their destination, Paris, France. j Center — O, Zee bedbugs! Lower — Cornelia amazes her friends with her versatile personality. COMEDY The cast of " Our Hearts Were Young and Gay. " The spirit of the Pioneers showed itself on April 6, when an unwelcome April shower failed to dampen the spirit of the cast, nor the enthusiasm of the audience for the performance of the Junior Play, " Our Hearts Were Young and Gay.” Upper — " Daisy Mae " Austgen and " Li’ l Abner ” Busick are crowned at the " Sadie Hawkins ' Dance " on November 3 while other party-goers look on. TO THE CLIMAX OF OUR JOURNEY . . . Lower Left — Joan Clark and Jack Tallman set out on a night to remember, May 25. Lower Right — Junior Class president Edward Ranostaj and his date, Carol Capek, and Senior Class president John Miskus and his date, Mary Lynn Miller, seem to be enjoying the Junior Prom, " Silhouettes in the Night.” Homecoming Queen Dolores Sutton and her court, consisting of Theresa Chapek, Marilyn Blohm, Joan Clark, Marlene Seehausen, Rosemary Tkach and Marjorie Melaven, reigned at the " Homecoming Dance ” on December 30. Many students make use of the school library which is one of the finest in the State. of the many pleasures of the Latin course. Conjugating verbs in Mrs. Eddy’s Latin class is on. Upper — Mr. Hein demonstrates the correct way to operate a saw in his shop class. Lower — Dale Seliger explains, " And then you take this number — to the other members of the advanced algebra class.

Although leading Hammond High, 25-23, at half time Clark lost, 44-38, in the Civic Center Classic. Our journey halts as we pause to view and par- ticipate in football, basketball, track, baseball, wrest- ling, cross country, tennis and golf. We recognize that sports help build strong individuals, both phy- sically and mentally, and help us to take our place as worth-while citizens of tomorrow. The football fields and the gym have felt the tread of our feet. These trails will long be remem- bered. Our athletes at Clark play with real Pioneer spirit — they never quit fighting. Many thrilling moments will never be forgotten by Clark fans, such as the Whiting-Clark basketball game in the Sectional Tourney on February 28. 17 UPPER LEFT — Asst. Coach A.

CLARK ENDS UNSPECTACULAR SEASON Coach Emerson Aldrich and his ' 51 Pioneers didn ' t fare so well this year, as they emerged victors in two of their eight outings. Their two wins were over Thornton Fractional and Hammond Tech. The Pioneer ' s machine was only in top-notch working condition in one classic, that being the GRC- Tech tilt in which the Robertsdale lads managed a 34-7 win. GRC’s 52 squad will be minus the services of Bob Companik, Vic Collins, Steve Dupin, Ted Herman and Marcus Hmurovich, member of the Hammond Times All-Star Squad. SCHEDULE Clark Opponent j E. C.

When the varsity machine faltered, it was Coach Peterson and his Settlers that provided the thrills for Pioneer rooters. The younger Pioneers went through the season undefeated, notching wins over Hammond Tech, Thornton Fractional, Mor- ton and Whiting. Bonds, Oaks and Wilson ran the defensive opponents wild and proved to all Clark fans and coaches alike, that the Pioneer camp wouldn ' t be so dark in 1952. 20 HOMESTEADERS BAG HAMMOND HIGH VARSITY PASSING STATISTICS Passes Passes Attempted Completed Yardage Cudek 63 30 417 Companik 4 2 70 Carpen 3 1 9 Busick 7 1 -11 Muta 1 0 0 Poppen 1 0 0 FRESHMAN FOOTBALL SCHEDULE George Rogers Clark’s youngest gridders, the Homesteaders, had a successful season, bagging three wins against one setback.

PIONEER NETMEN BOAST BEST SEASON IN EIGHT YEARS Coach Ed Shields and his 1951-52 netmen had their best season since 1944 when the Pioneers captured the Conference title. The 1951-52 cagers placed third in the Western Division with an 8-3 mark and ran the season count to 15-9- In the year 1951 the Robertsdale lads won only four while dropping five, but when the bell tolled and 1952 rolled in, the Pioneer machine began to move. First they checked Tolleston, Wallace and Whiting from climbing too high on the Western Division ladder, before they tumbled to Johnny Barrato ' s league-leading Senators. Valpo, Fort Wayne South and Gary Horce Mann were the next to try, with no avail, to stop the " red-hot” Shieldsmen. The basketeers closed the season with a loss to the Wildcats, a win over Emerson and a defeat to second-place Froebel. 22 UPPER LEFT — Forward Tom Burosh puts on brakes trying to evade Tolleston ' s guard.

The Pioneersmen gave GRC boosters the usual fine Sectional showing. They began with a thrilling 53-51 victory over Whiting. The Clarksters outscored the Oilers 13-2 in the last three minutes to notch the win. Clark beat " fundamental sound " Merrillville, 54-48, in the evening session and edged Noll, 37-30, in the semi-finals. It was then that the Pioneer machine began to falter. But it didn ' t run out of gas until the final half of the Sec- tional final against Hammond High. The Shieldsmen held a half-time three point margin, but dropped the classic by a 51-41 decision.

SETTIERS CAPTURE CITY TITLE . . . FRESHMEN WIN 13 GRC’s freshmen squad came through in their usual fine style and at the close of the season sported a fine 13-5 record. Mr. Emerson Aldrich thus added an- other winning season to his already long list. The Frosh record was second only to that of the B Squad in the senior high. Mr. Aldrich expressed the belief that his team will offer quite a few good varsity prospects for coming years. " Victory " seemed to be the only thing Clark ' s Settlers knew as they pounded out a 11-3 season record and copped the Hammond City B Squad basketball championship. Coach Hein and his Robertsdale lads topped Whit- ing, Fractional, Hammond High, Roosevelt and Tech before they tasted the bitterness of defeat in a second meeting with their cross-town rival, Whiting. The younger Pioneers dropped games to Washing- ton and Froebel, with wins over the Wildcats, Vik- ings and Emerson Raider ' s sandwiched between. 25 CINDERMEN PLACE THIRD IN CONFERENCE, Clark’s cindermen did themselves proud during their 1951 season by finishing third in the Conference, the highest they have ever finished. Their season, which included such special meets as the Indianapolis Relays, and the Western Division Northern Indiana Conference, indoor at the University of Chicago field house and outdoor at East Chicago, ended with a tally of 6 wins and 3 losses. Some of the outstanding thinly clad lads were Basil Kristoff, who set a new Sec- tional record in the pole vault at 1 YlVl " Frank Sharkey, breaking the school record in the mile run with a time of 4:37; and Captain Bill Moses, who made a fine showing in the high jump and high hurdles.

Coach Emerson Aldrich and his diamondmen had one of the best seasons in the history of George Rogers Clark High School baseball. With 10 victories, 8 defeats and 2 ties to their record, it was the first time in " many a year” a Pioneer ball club had won more ball games than they lost. While GRC’s three .300 hitters, A1 Carpen, Ted Herman and Bob Figler, pounded enemy pitching, hurlers like Ed Doma- sica, Pete Carmichael and Bud Golubiewski stopped the oppo- sition on the defensive end. DIAMONDMEN HAVE BEST SEASON IN 10 YEARS Probably the team ' s biggest thrill of the year was their 4-3 defeat of the unconquered Raiders of Gary Emerson. With the loss of only two players, pitcher Bud Golubiewski and outfielder Joe Kvasnica, Clark fans can expect a better team in ' 52. Who knows, maybe they will be the conference champs. ROW 1 — F.

In the Hobart Invitational, Frank Sharkey brought home a medal for eighth place. Ribbon winners were Charles Barrix, Richard Dikun, Hank Filkow- ski, Ronald Kantowski, Louis Ollis and Edward Ranostaj. Our Frosh-Soph boys had a very successful season by having an undefeated record. The Freshman squad captured the city meet. Lettermen Richard Dikun and Hank Filkowski will return to bolster next year ' s cinder team, along with some up-and-coming underclassmen. FR0SI1 THINLY CLADS COP CITY MEET LOWER LEFT— ROW 1— L.

The last game of the season proved to be the most exciting for GRC ' s netmen because underdog Clark won a decisive 3-2 victory over previously unbeaten Tech. A 5-3 record and a second place tie in conference standings proves that the netmen, under the direction of Mr. Gerald Royer, had a highly successful season. LOWER LEFT — R.

Under the expert guidance of Mr. Carlyle Snider, who in- cidentally made the boys turn green with envy many times with his fine practice scores, GRCs golfers had an active year. Never a team to cause other region clubs too much consternation, the golfers still enjoyed themselves and had a good laugh over Junior Steel Burkey’s " seven putt hole.” SNIDER PROVES TO RE BEST GOLFER 32 N. Hadley S. Polkinghorn A. Hrapchak C. Vater CHEERLEADERS ORIGINATE BOOSTER CLUB The spirit of the Clark cheerleaders was greatly tested when torrents of rain came down in full force during the Clark-Thornton Fractional football game. Instead of running for shelter, the cheerleaders yelled to the bitter end. Last summer, while practicing cheers for the new school year, Nancy, Andrea, Shirley and Carol, had an idea for a Booster Club. The result — Clark now has an enthusiastic Booster Club with Miss Dolores McCampbell as sponsor. C CLUB HONORS CLARK ATHLETES " As long as we have an America, boys will play in sports for the enjoyment that the participation brings,” believes Mr. Arvo Antilla, athletic director and C Club sponsor. The club was organized by and for all the boys who have worked hard to earn their major letters. Two of the highest honors went to Don Clark and Don Poppen in the form of the Harold Zimmer Award and the All-Around C Club medal, respec- tively. In football the most valuable went to Steve Dupin; the best mental attitude, Don Clark. In basketball it was Ed Ranostaj most valuable and Don Poppen with the best mental attitude. Ed also received the free throw award. Ted Herman was most valuable in baseball in ’51 as was Bill Moses in track. Wrestling ' s most valuable went to Jim Daugherty while in cross country it was Frank Sharkey. ROW 1— E. Ranosiaj, S. Dupin, M. Hmurovich, B. Companik, T. Burosh, J. Tallman, T. Herman, F.

(iAC GIRLS PROVE THEIR GENEROSITY BY SPONSORING THE “BIG HEARTED” DANCE The GAC girls found time to show what a generous group they were by sponsoring the " Big Hearted Dance.” The idea originated while the GAC officers and Miss Leota Kenzie, sponsor, were touring the Porter Hospital for crippled children. They realized the need for more equipment and decided to do something about it. The result was a dance, presented on February 8, with the proceeds contributed to the hospital. During the pioneering days, sports were con- sidered strictly for men. It did not take long, however, to discover that girls also needed the exercise and competition. The sports program, which has been established in the Girls’ Ath- letic Club, offers such vital factors. Basketball, baseball, bowling, tennis and volleyball were on the sports agenda for the year. Points were earned for a letter or a pin by participating in these sports and also by selling candy and popcorn at the football and basketball games. ROW 1 — B. Hill, C. Peters, S. Massig, C.

Clark students learned quickly that clubs and organizations help them to develop into sound citi- zens. Therefore, they took advantage of this fact. Through clubs they learned the spirit of co-operation; they learned to accept responsibility that was a little greater than what was expected in the classrooms. The faculty gave much assistance as leaders, and pointed out the way to the inexperienced travelers. Through extra-curricular activities, the students matured and broadened their views of life, so to be ready for the greater journey to come. 37 NHS HONORS 21 SENIORS, 9 JUNIORS Qualifications for membership in the National Honor Society are as follows: a fine character, the ability to lead, willingness to render service and ranking scholastically in the upper third of the class.

" This question is asked fre- quently by the 18 members of this year’s Student Panel to students roaming the halls during class periods. Under the direction of Joe Gerba, the Student Panel maintained order in the lunchroom and handled other problems that arose. 38 During the meetings held this year, an amendment to revise the constitution was proposed and voted upon by the members. This new amendment states that nominees for council offices will no longer have to be previous council members. Long ago when the pioneers settled in a new ter- ritory, they tried to make sure of one thing, a good government. A smaller replica of good government in this school was established by the representatives of the student body who united and formed the Student Council. The election of officers for the coming year was held earlier this year so that they could attend the state meeting at Indianapolis in the spring. B. Companik (treasurer), J.

Miss Harriet Lake, librarian; Miss Dolores McCampbell, English instructor; and members of the Library Club keep everything running smoothly. The duties of the members range from keeping the books neatly arranged on the shelves, mending them and writing over- due book notices, to planning interesting bulletin board displays. 40 Aw f r VI 1 i i-fp ■ } . . i »v W ' :. ’ y 9 1 I i % i SEATED — J.

This year the Forum Club was reorganized under the direc- tion of Mr. Arthur Erickson, government teacher. Meetings were held in Room 207 and discussions about various social problems gave members food for thought. One of the interesting meetings featured pictures by Mr. Erickson of his trips through Central America and the Western states. Membership in the club is restricted to juniors and seniors who have a definite interest in current events and government. FORUM CLUB IS REORGANIZED " Resolved: That all American citizens should be subject to conscription for essential service in time of war,” was the timely question debated this year by the members of the Clark National Forensic League, coached by Mr. Arthur Erickson. The league traveled to Purdue University for a conference which 1500 other delegates from Indiana schools attended. Clark in turn played host to the Purdue Debate team in November.

True to the traditional dogpatch style, they were given crowns of wreaths. Helping the unfortunate children in Europe and making Thanksgiving baskets for people in our own district, were some of the projects in which the group participated. During the general meetings community singing and arious speakers, including a make-up expert, were featured. Another speaker was Mr. Arthur Erickson, social studies teacher, who supplemented his talk on his trip to the Central American coun- tries by exhibiting articles of clothing won by the natives.

Miss Ida Iverson succeeded Mrs. Harriet Shorb as sponsor, because of Mrs. Shorb s retirement. NURSE ' S CLUB ACQUIRES PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE The footsteps of time carry on through the years with Clark’s future nurses. Although they are young of body, they are strong of mind and heart.

" ' " Who gets the film entitled " Jane Eyre?” These are common questions to members of the newly organized Projection Club. With Tom Sims acting as chairman, the club, consisting of 46 Hi-Y boys, has fulfilled its aim for this year by seeing that two experienced projection operators are available for any period of the day. MODERN DANCE ENTERTAINS IN MUSICAL " One, two, three, lift.” These words can be heard coming from the gym every time the modern dancers practice with Miss Leota Kenzie, sponsor. Exercises keep the girls limber and agile, so that their per- formances are hard to excell. Creating body movements to fit the music is the aim of these girls. This year the dancers performed several numbers in the musical production, " Over The Rainbow,” presented on March 15. 45 MORE THEN THE LANGUAGE, IS THE AIM OF THE SPANISH CLUB Learning the Jarbe Tapetio, the Mexican Hat Dance, was part of the Spanish Club’s plan to supplement the teaching of Spanish.

Even though the bus was four hours late, the Senior Hi-Y boys still managed to arrive in time to attend the afternoon session of the state conference which was held at Connersville, Indiana, on November 16. " To create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character " is th e pledge which all Hi-Y members must stand up to. Being a good member includes going to all the meetings, which are patterned to help the boys in school and in the com- munity, and participating in one of the many activities of the Hi-Y. 48 By rendering services to the school and the community, the Junior Hi-Y, composed of freshman and sophomore boys, dis- played their goal of good Christian character in many ways dur- ing the past year. Serving the school was done by watching doors during school hours, acting as paddle boys during football games and selling soft drinks at all school dances. Among their community service projects was a movie, ad- mission being some form of canned food which was later given to needy families during the Christmas holidays. The club also sponsored the " Birthday Ball " on February 22. GOOD CHRISTIAN CHARACTER IS DISPLAYED BY JUNIOR HI-Y UPPER— ROW 1— L. Kessler. H. Bcnash. W. Willis, R. Fruehling, W. Alcorn. E. Adams.

That push-ahead spirit of the Pioneers of old has carried over to this day into the functioning of the Stage Production staff. Members of the Stage Crew, supervised by Miss Oza Cun- ningham, take care of properties, sets, lighting, costumes and make-up, which are used in plays, assemblies and concerts during the year. Every production shows more emphatically the co-operation and skill displayed by those working backstage. THEY WORK UNWITNESSED RY THE AUDIENCE 50 Unselfishingly devoting their spare time for the benefit of the school were the members of the Service Club and the Safety Patrol. The Service Club girls, guided by Miss Ellen Viney, super- vised the elementary children during their lunch hours. They kept the younger boys and girls entertained and busy at some constructive activity. Under the supervision of Mr. Alvin Peterson, the Safety Patrol was responsible for the safety of the students at Clark. They guarded the street corners and conducted the smaller children across the busy intersections. UPPER — ROW 1 — D. Moulder, P. Warnock, S. Horton, J. Eggers, B. Jones, B. Filkowski, B. Kosiba, R.

POWDER HORN COMES OUT DESPITE LOSS OF DUMMY PAGES J. Lesniak (business manager), J. Gerba (advertising manager), M. See- hausen (editor-in-chief). AND MiSSING PHOTOGRAPHER It all began on July 8 when Marlene Seehausen, editor-in-chief of the 1952 Powder Horn, and Arlene Bayus, associate editor, journeyed to Bloomington, Indiana, to attend the High School Journalism Insti- tute at Indiana University. During their two weeks stay, where they gained information on how to plan and organize a yearbook, a theme for the annual was lighted upon. During August the book was really started when the editors met with Mr. Gerald Royer, sponsor, and Mr. E. Hackleman, representative of the Indianapolis Engraving Company, to lay out a tentative dummy. With the opening of school in the fall, schedules were constantly put on the mornings ' bulletins to let students know the time and place of each picture to be taken. 52 STANDING — B. DeBruyn, J. Lesniak, R. Conley, Mr. G. Royer (sponsor). SEATED — J. Brooks. After classes got organized, the subscription mana- ger, Joe Lesniak, went about trying to encourage students for the yearbook. Joe showed his talent by writing skits for assembly presentations and drawing cartoons which were placed in editions of the Pioneer News. His efforts were rewarded with a total of 540 subscriptions. The path to publishing the Powder Horn was not always smooth and easy-going. One day it was dis- covered that five pages of the dummy were missing. Every inch of the PN room was searched, but the missing pages were never found. The day was saved when Jane Spillar, photography editor, drew up the missing pages from sizes that were obtained from another list. Sometimes Johnny Wauro, our photo- grapher, couldn ' t seem to get out of bed mornings and some of our subjects were left waiting to have their pictures taken. SEATED — S. Bunchek, M. Melaven, A. Bayus, J. Spillar, J. Raymond. STANDING — C. Bergman, M. Zajac. Undertaking the job of selling advertising, Joe Gerba and his staff spent many long hours in con- tacting the business houses of the community. Pasting and mounting pictures involved much de- tailed figuring and work with the slide rule. Dead- lines had to be met with the engraver and the printer. At the very last, another problem arose — some of the picture identifications were missing. This involved another of the many trips to Bodies’ studio where a search was made through negatives until the missing people’s names were found. ROW 1 — J. Brooks, L. Nestor, D. Fedor. ROW 2 — T.

PIONEER NEWS STAEE SCORES ANOTHER FIRST WITH INAUGURATION OF HOMECOMING DANCE Sponsoring the first " Homecoming Dance’’ at Clark on December 30, was one of the biggest projects undertaken by the staff members of the Pioneer News this year. Over three hundred alumni and students attended this festive occasion during which a Homecoming Queen was crowned. Publishing an informative, educational and humorous newspaper as well as giving the views of not only the staff members, but the student body and faculty also, is the main purpose of the Pioneer News. Under the guidance of sponsor Mr. Gerald Royer, and co-editors, Carole Bergman and Shirley Bunchek and sports editor, Bob DeBruyn, the staff members worked hard and sometimes burned the midnight oil to make the paper one that our school could be proud of. A scoop was made on Friday, February 29, when the sports page carried the results of the Sectional Tourney from the previous night. C. Bergman (co-editor), B. DeBruyn (sports editor), S.

ORCHESTRA REALIZES DREAM OF HOMEROOM Even though the trail held many barriers, the hardships were finally overcome and the dream of having a homeroom of their own has at last been realized by the members of the orchestra. Under the direction of Mr. Darwin Eret, the orchestra has proved its abilities by playing for the All-School Play, the Winter Concert and at the graduation exercises. To get the students in the Thanksgiving spirit, the orchestra held a sock-hop entitled " Harvest Holiday " on November 20 in the gymnasium. 55 While marching through the football field goal posts, the band members took their first steps of the year. There Larry Larson, drum major, led the players through hours of practice so that the half-time shows during the football games could be presented by the band in all their splendor and glory. The band, consisting of 78 members, is the largest GRC has had in many years. Getting uniforms to fit them all was quite a task for Mr. Carlyle Snider, director. Chartering two buses and journeying to Mishawaka, Indiana, on October 19 to play during the half at the Mishawaka Clark football game provided excitement for the members during the first weeks of school. To begin its long list of concerts, the band performed at the Career Week program held on November 15. Other perform- ances included the mid-year Winter " pop” Concert on January LEFT TO RIGHT— A.

THE HAND SCORES A VICTORY EVERY TIME IT PLAYS 56 ■4 +r. 23; a Sunday afternoon performance at Seneca, Illinois, on February 17; participation in the City Festival on May 7, 8 and 9 and a Spring Concert on May 21. The saying, " You’re only as young as you feel,” did apply to the entire band as they marched in the Santa Claus parade on November 22. Honor was brought to Clark when many se- lected soloists and ensembles received awards at contests in which the members participated. Strutting down the football field in their shiny new uniforms and high top hats were the ma- jorettes, Pat Goginski and Sharon Herberg, who returned from last year, and Alice Adams and Pat Boner, two new additions.

THEIR VOICES BLEND EIRE A (I I ANT ORGAN If you would walk through the lower hall during any period of the day, chances are that most often you would hear melodies sounding forth from Room 9. There, girls and boys, under the direction of Miss Wilma Range, head of the vocal music department, blend their voices in singing various songs. These students compose many separate music groups. For example, there is the Boys ' Octet, other- wise known as the " Pionaires. " This group sang for the memorial service for Franklin Thomas and also at the Lions Club. Besides just singing in class for enjoyment, por- traying a scene in the annual Winter Concert was the major performance of the Boys ' Glee Club. If anything is to increase, something must be added. The " Teen Tones,” also known as the Mixed Ensemble, is a new addition to the list of music groups in the department. Their performances out- side of school included singing on the radio during American Education Week and also at the Teachers ' Institute. The Girls ' Choruses form another part of the music department. In the Spring Concert, entitled " Over The Rainbow,” the girls were featured in two scenes. Some girls, performing as dancers, portrayed the sugar plums in the Nutcracker Suite given in the Winter Concert on December 13. To give the public as well as the faculty and those students who are not members of a music group a chance to hear and see the talents of these groups, the department as a whole gave a Winter Concert on December 13 and a Spring Concert, entitled " Over The Rainbow” on March 15. Even though many nights were spent practicing the various scenes in these productions, the reward was always a successful production. Also, every student of the department was eligible to participate in the annual city Music Festival held at the Civic Center in May. 53 SEATED — S. Fricke (accompanist). ROW 1 — J. Stivers, E.

To be a little dif- ferent, the members of the Mixed Chorus wore black robes for their performances as a group. Because of the change in class schedules, the chorus now has a complete class period in which to sing. Besides having vocal ability, the A Cappella Choir also stands out for its dramatic ability. Portraying the story of Little Red Riding Hood in the production, " Over The Rainbow,” proves this statement. The choir, consisting of 48 members, sang for the Teachers’ Institute and at the United Nations assembly. ROW 1 — B. Gascala, C. Dana (accompanist) , M. Schultz, C. Laterneau, M. Galbreath, P.

The day before the starting of Christmas vacation usually finds the Girls ' Ensemble, composed of the " Harmonettes” and the " Melo Tones,” caroling in the halls. This is just one of their many performances. GIRLS’ ENSEMBLE AND CHOIR WEAVE MUSICAL MEMORIES Making a tape recording for the Food Fair at Clark was one of the undertakings of the Girls’ Choir. Also, some of the members danced in the Winter Concert as well as in the Spring Concert. 61 - Counsellor Mr. Paul Wilkinson talks with students on GRC ' s front steps. Joanne Raymond, John Tkach, Joan Clark, Shirley Bunchek, Leonard Hoyda. Last, but most important of all are the people who made this journey. It started at the beginning of school in September, when friends met at lockers and in the cafeteria to compare programs and gossip about summer fun. New romances became open history when guys tarried too long while walking their girls to classes and had to run to beat the clock. The faculty also was very active this year by acting as sponsors for our clubs, chaperons for our dances and guides in our various undertakings. In the writing of the George Rogers Clark story, these are the main characters. 63 A TRUE PIONEERSMAN LEADS HIS PIONEERS SUCCESSFULLY Just as George Rogers Clark led the pioneers of the past to their destina- tion, so has Mr. Orville B. Hayward, principal, guided the students of today through a successful year. It can certainly be said that Mr. Hayward possesses that push-ahead spirit which is so vital in order to attain higher goals. Under his supervision many new ideas have been developed for the betterment of our school. During the first semester of this past year a public address system was established over which 186 programs were presented to 219 homerooms. PRINCIPAL O. B. HAYWARD This year Principal Hayward also inaugurated a new system whereby school Lsegins at 8:30 a.m. and dis- misses at 3:30. On Wednesday morn- ing a period has been added to the school routine during which various clubs meet. At some time during the school year each high school student received a notice to attend a conference with Mr. Paul Wilkinson or Miss Veva McAfee, guid- ance counsellors. These conferences were arranged for the students so that they could plan their curriculum and take care of other matters pertaining to school life. With the able assistance and helpful advice of both Mr. Wilkinson and Miss McAtee, newly appointed guidance counsellor, the various problems of different students were solved.

CLASS HISTORY About to depart on the greatest part of our journey, the Senior Class of 1952 looks back upon the four years of travels that have brought it to this turning point. In 1948 Mr. Edwin Martin, former junior high teacher, accepted sponsorship of the energetic " freshies” and lost no time in organizing the class. We chose as our officers, Harry Smith, president; Bob Ringgenberg, vice-president; Richard Demko- vich, secretary; and Olga Dudas, treasurer. Carole Bergman was given the position of class historian. Quickening our pace, we entered our sophomore year and gave the dance, " Fall Frolic. " The motto, " Wis- dom is knowing what to do; skill is knowing how to do it; virtue is doing it,” was picked by the officers who were, Ed Ranostaj, president; Steve Dupin, secretary; Bob Figler, vice-president; and Jack Tallman, treasurer. Progressing rapidly under the able guidance of Mr. Martin, the juniors elected capable Ed Ranostaj to serve again as president; Don Clark, vice-president; Irene Singel, secretary; and John Tkach, treasurer. To conclude the successful year, Silhouettes In the Night, " namely the Junior-Senior Prom, was presented. As worldly seniors the year really Hew by, right from the very first class meeting to graduation. We chose as our officers, Bob Turley, president; Ted Herman, vice-president; Dolores Sutton, secretary; and Bob Figler, treasurer. Gum snapping, day dreaming, note passing, foolish questions and whispering are all part of the past. The future now awaits us. 69 Ted Herman (vice-president), Dolores Sutton (secretary), Robert Filler (treasurer), Robert Turley (president). R. ADAMS J. AUSTGEN P. BADOS P. BALLON B. BALOG C.

WALTER ALBERT IGNATUK " Walt " Brunnudale, Canton, Ohio 1; Art Club 3, 4. 75 UPPER LEFT — The beautiful eyes of Marianne Zajac and Jim Daugherty rightfully gained them the title of having tha nicest eyes. UPPER RIGHT — Jane Madsen and Don Clark show just why they were selected for having the most de- lightful smiles. CENTER LEFT — There’s never a dull moment when you’re with one of the Senior wits, Shirley Bunchek and Ted Herman. CENTER RIGHT — Picking out a record for the next dance are the " best dancers,” Faye Krause and George Udchitz. LOWER RIGHT — The center of attraction are our popularity winners, Shirley Polkinghorn and Ed Ranos- taj. LOWER LEFT — Because they are always ready with a " hello,” Rosemary Tkach and Joe Gerba were chosen Ideal Seniors for friendliness. UPPER LEFT — The tide cf having the " nicest hair” goes to Charlyn Hoff and Richard Tolin. UPPER CENTER — Their knack for wearing the right thing at the right time won Jimmie Brooks and Leonard Hoyda the title of " best dressed” Seniors. UPPER RIGHT — The stairway of success beckons to Kathryn Rosaschi and Bob Figler who were voted most likely to succeed. IDEAL SENIORS A TASK WELL DONE When a task is undertaken it can usually be assumed that many hardships will have to be met and overcome to fulfill that certain task successfully. Even though various problems confronted Mr. Edwin Martin, Senior Class sponsor, during his four years of guidance, he was still able to solve them and as a result the seniors were lead through four successful years. In all of Mr. Martin ' s decisions, he did what he felt best, not for himself, but for the students of the Senior Class. The members of the 1952 Senior Class of George Rogers Clark will certainly remember Mr. Edwin Martin as being a true pioneer in every respect. T. IHNAT J. JANKOWSKI B. JONES J. JUHASZ K. JURBALA N.

Time goes on and as always there is someone else to take the place of those who are leaving. The Junior Class, however, has done its best all along the trail they have taken to make their class well remembered. Chosen to lead the young and uncertain freshmen was Miss Edna Howe, commercial teacher, who has endeavored to keep them on the right path. Work- ing with her were the freshmen class officers, presi- dent, George Kaminsky; vice-president, Albert Car- pen; secretary, Peggy Eberly; and treasurer, John Stasny. Beginning their sophomore year with officers Ron- ald Cudek, president; Albert Carpen, who was re- elected vice-president; Grace Kaminsky, secretary; and Don Frunk, treasurer; the class started off on the right trail. An exciting year was on the calendar for the Junior Class in 1951-52. The class rings, junior dance, the play and the prom brought not only excitement and satisfaction in a job well done, but also its share of headaches. Proving that the whole school liked the leadership qualities of Bud Sutherland, class president, they elected him president of the Student Council. As- sisting him as class officers were Leroy Sparks, vice- president; Marlene Krill, secretary; and Ted Muta, treasurer. Playing to a full house on May 1, 1952, the cast of the Junior Play, " Jenny Kissed Me, " knew that all the weeks of rehearsal had been worth it. At last came the evening of May 23, the night the juniors had waited for all year, the night of the prom. The Junior Class can look upon its history with pride, knowing that during the year to come they would continue to make history at GRC, carving a place among the other outstanding classes who have strode through the quiet halls, which come alive with the beginning of each new school day. 86 JUNIORS ROW 1— E.

At first the footsteps were slow and light, but they gained more confidence as the leaders hip of the Freshman Class was given to Lawrence Kessler, Dona Clark, Gregoria Argus and Judy Eggers elected to be president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, re- spectively. To help keep their footing on the right path, Miss Margaret ide, home economics teacher, was chosen to be their sponsor. Proving their ability, Delphine Kovacik and Illoma LaPert won gold keys for art entries at a contest held in Indianapolis. Not to be outdone, Margie Bachman, Grayce Etter, Joyce Latiak, Charles Smith, Victor Swenson, Pat Tobias, Barbara True, and Carol Warm- bier won first and second places at the annual district solo-ensemble contest at Gary. Judy Roy and Barbara True also received first place in a solo contest at Ham- mond High. In an American Legion sponsored Poppy Contest, CLASS HISTORY Lois Gardner won first and second place in Group II. Besides being a very talented class, they also showed great signs of leadership. In the Junior Hi-Y, which consists of boys in the Freshman and Sopho- more class, Jerry Ranostaj was elected president; Charles Smith, vice-president; Holton Easter, secre- tary; and George Oaks, treasurer. Did you know that the class has a pair of twins — namely, June and Warren Alcorn? We also have some famous show people — Dean Martin ( Gregoria Argus); Jerry Lewis (Sandra Krill); Mary Hartline ( Diane Keim). Having finished being " Freshie greenies " the Sophs got down to business and elected Lawrence Kessler, president; Bill Studer, vice-president; Carole Bode- feld, secretary; and Erwin Adams, treasurer, to lead them on to greater achievements. Peggy Lou Nuckols and Barbara Tolin represented the class in the all- school play " Suspect.” With the end of the year, the Class of ' 54 is look- ing ahead with anticipation of becoming upperclass- men and forging ahead.

During their first year in high school they have had an opportunity to observe and gather impressions about the new activities they have entered. Trying to act a little more mature after looking up in awe at the seniors, who appeared so self-confident, was a phase they went through. Not knowing that sometimes the seniors would look down and be a little envious of the laughing, happy-go-lucky group who have three more years of school life filled with parties, dances, basketball and football games, prom and yes, even classes, to look forward to before leaving school to earn a living. Head man on this four-year journey, guiding ap- proximately 175 members, is Mr. Arnold Corder, social studies and business teacher. The first officers in the history of the Class of ’55 were Clarke Miller, president; Monica Brazina, vice-president; Audrey Bodney, secretary; and Bill Zajac, treasurer. Mike Kenes was elected class historian, a position he will hold for four years. Assisting him are Donna Cross and Tom Leimbach. This year the Freshman Class worked hard to pre- sent the best dance of the school year thereby prov- ing that even though they are a young class, they can keep up with the others when it comes to orig- inality. This year the class gave their dance on April 18. FRESHMEN ROW 1 — J. Adams, L. Allen, E. An- ton, B. Ashcraft, E. Augustyn, A. Bachi, J. Bachman, R. Bados, S. Baran, J. Bays. ROW 2— R. Betustak, S.

Late Amusement Edition Wait. ' piece in Dance and Relax! It ' s Good For You! P RAISE they heap about bands galore Not one word about a ballroom floor Something to dance on is taken for granted To be a Maplewood floor — once a tree was planted G EE, an air-cushioned floor— one in the nation Compared to all others it ' s a real sensation Just the other day, I heard a lady say; " It ' s the world ' s finest floor in the USA " Relaxation must be done in two ways . . . to rest both muscles and nerves. And health authorities agree that one of the most ideal forms of relaxation . . . a form that DOES rest both nerves and muscles — is dancing. Dancing rests muscles by bringing into play those muscles one does not ordinarily use in the day ' s routine . . . rests the nerves by taking one ' s mind off the cares and worry of the day. Try it the next time you ' re almost to that " all frazzled out " point. See if an evening of dancing doesn ' t send you home to a night of delightful sleep and rest, from which you ' ll awake the next morning refreshed and ready to tackle the new day ' s problems with renewed spirit. T O slide your foot across the grain Will send a message to your brain " This is it! " you ' ll say to yourself The rest they can put back on the shelf Men ore like steel; when they lose their temper, they are worthless. THE BEST BANDS IN THE LAND PLAY AT MADURA ' S DANCELAND WHERE THE BEST PEOPLE DANCE. Dancing Develops; Denotes Deauty . Grace Expels Self-consciousness, Insures Youth; Dance Often, It ' s Good for You DANCING, above all other exer- cise, is the best insurance of youth. In this modern, beauty age of ours it is no longer necessary to be told that we need exercise. It is as im- portant to our good looks and well being as food is in building up muscle and tissue. In dancing, there is an exhilaration and joy felt in every movement and, with the exception of some of the eccentric numbers all dances are arranged with an assur- ance of grace and harmony. The well-trained dancer is cne whose every movement is done with ease and precision; there is a co- ordination between the mind and body in any dance step which gives one alertness and poise. Dancers may be temperamental, but as a rule, they are good humored and interesting. The girl who is a bit self-conscious or awkward in her movements, will find there is nothing to relieve her embarrassment like dancing. It works like magic in giving her a feeling that she is in tune with the world. She is thrilled with the actual musical rhythmic motion, and is awakened to o new joy in self-expression. The dancer attracts admiration in her walk. There is always a graceful rhythm to her well-trained muscles as she glides along with an easy swing. It would be so easy for every one to move with ease and grace, if one would just give the matter a little thought, and besides the beauty of movement, it is possible to conduct oneself in an intelligent, time-saving speed through the crowded centers. 116 Compliments of Phone Sheffield 685 AMICK RADIO DR.
