In this, your 1953 Powder Horn, about Clark and its people, in classes and clubs, in school and out. What is Clark made of ? Bricks and mor- tar, books and paper — and people. Students — gay, laughing, friendly and earnest, they fill the halls with their talk of games, classes and dates. Teachers — helpful and enthusiastic, they maintain a lively interest in class and club work. People — this is what Clark is made of. A typical Clark day begins . . . Students with their laughter and noise pour into the silent building . . . pause at their lockers . . . become absorbed in classes . . . relax with a coke after school. Our sports are all-inclusive . . . Will the ball come through ? . . . Girls like volleyball . . . Fall brings football, ever-popular . . . gym classes are required, but fun. Excitement, thrills and fun galore — that’s why we at Clark like sports. And the famed Pioneer spirit is kept alive and renewed at each football, basketball and baseball game. Other sports too, come in for their share of glory — wrestling and track and tennis — all echo the cry, " Go You Pioneers!’’ A club activity for every interest . . . movies for classes . . . nursing for the future . . . Student Council’s magazine drive . . . Latin from the past. Fun for all . . . football queen and court . . . assemblies, instructive entertaining . . . fac- ulty Christmas party . . . students celebrate Hal- loween. flllltS We have classes and work, but we at Clark also have extra-curricular activities — like clubs. Art club, Booster club, C club — through the alphabet there is an activity for everyone, from the studious to the fun-loving, from the serious to the not-so-solemn. And we at Clark have fun — with plays to challenge the latent talents of would-be Ham- lets; concerts, both vocal and instrumental, by budding musicians; school, class and club spon- sored dances; parades and celebrations of all types. Yes, 1953 was a fun-filled year for everyone. . . . The bashful freshman, awkward sophomore, energetic junior and worldly senior; the helpful and un- derstanding faculty — All Clark’s people are recorded on the following pages. enlop C lciSS EMILIE J.

DON ZELEZNIK CU Off; icerA Standing: L. Sparks, R. Kovach (co-treasurers) , B. Guy (president), J. Stasny (vice- president) . Sitting: B. Gacsala (secretary). Beginning their last year at George Rogers Clark High School, the Class of 1953 elected officers early in the fall to guide them through the en- suing semester. Bob Guy, as president, called class meetings to discuss the activities of the year. John Stasny, vice-president, assisted Bob, while Betty Gascala was busy with the duties of corre- spondence, commencement and name-card orders. Co-treasurers Ray Kovach and Leroy Sparks handled the financial aspects of the Senior dance, name card and commencement orders. All in all, the class officers served their class capably and efficiently. dlClAA Sponsor Dear Class of 1953: It was thus I greeted you almost four years ago, but I confess that you were then but a sea of unfamiliar faces to me. Since our many personal contacts in classes, committees, dances, and Commencement events, I think of you as good friends to whom I now must say, " Farewell!” I felt honored to be chosen as your sponsor, and as you have developed and have achieved so much from year to year, I doubt if any parent could have been prouder. The road was not always smooth. We have made mis- takes, and there have been some conflicts among us. As our paths separate, let us be tolerent of each other and forget the differences. And now with my sincere good wishes to each one of you for the years ahead, may I quote from Proverbs III: " Let not mercy and truth forsake thee . . . write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favor and good understand- ing in the sight of God and man.” Sincerely, Edna Howe 30 In the fall of 1949 Miss Edna Howe, commercial teacher, was chosen as our class sponsor. We elected George Kaminsky, president; Albert Carpen, vice-president; Peggy Eberly, secretary; and John Stasny, treasurer, of our newly formed class. Activities of this first year included a Freshman Day and the " Greenhorn Gallop,’’ our class dance. Jo o i . . . S Of)! o » mo res As Sophs we chose Ronald Cudek, president; Grace Kaminsky, secretary; and Donald Frunk, treasurer. Boxes and question marks were among the decorations of our dance, " The Thing!” it n i o rS " Today we follow, tomorrow we lead,” was selected as our class motto along with our colors, red and silver, and our flower, the red rose, during this very busy year. President Bud Suth- erland provided able leadership with the assistance of Vice-President Leroy Sparks, Secretary Marlene Krill, and Treasurer Ted Muta. A comedy suc- cess, " Jenny Kissed Me,” was presented as our class play. " Dancing in the Dark,” The Junior-Senior Prom, con- cluded this active year. Jo oh .. . Senio rS Accepting the leadership of Clark we selected President Robert Guy, Vice- President John Stasny, Secretary Betty Gacsala, and Co-Treasurers Ray Kovach and Leroy Sparks to conclude our high school career. Sponsoring our last dance, " Frost Kist Night,” we brought to a close our many social activities. Junior Class Officers G. Oaks, vice-president; K. Bonds, president; W. Willis, co-treasurer; G.

Hayward, at the head of the list. Devoting all of his time to the ad- ministration of an active and ever- growing school, Mr. Hayward had to relinquish the position of Student Coun- cil adviser to Mr. Arnold Corder dur- ing the second semester of the year. Being interested in any project that might benefit the school, under his guid- ance many new projects have been carried out. The annual magazine drive was successfully completed with the proceeds going to buy an electric score- board. Always ready and willing to help individuals with their problems, the students will remember their prin- cipal, Mr. O. B. Hayward. Office Staff The efficient and capable office staff, composed of Mrs. Florence Heiden, Mrs. Esther Jacobs and Miss Carol Stanton, are not only concerned with the general office work connected with the school, but also are ready and willing to aid teachers and stu- dents when necessary.

Every game was a thriller, though, as the Settlers did their best for Coach Alvin Peterson. In the season’s opener, the young Clarkites were held to a scoreless tie by Thornton Fractional. Following that they dropped a 6-0 heartbreaker to Hammond and wound up the season with a 7-0 win over Hammond Tech. Row 1: R. Schlcsser, W. Polkinghorn, J. Vargo, E. Broderick, J. Broderick, R.

Trailing, 7-0, in the opening minut es of the second period, Ken Bonds, junior halfback, raced 43 yards to knot the score. The Rough Riders hit pay dirt twice more while two GRC drives were halted inside of the Riders 20-yard line. GRC 14, Thornton Fractional 0. . . . Combining a sound running game with timely passing, Clark evened their season’s record at 1-1 at the expense of host team TF. Ken Bonds opened Pioneer scoring in the sec- ond quarter with a 14-yard touchdown pass to end Basil Kristoff. This gave the Pioneers a lead which they never relinquished. Tom Czyz, senior fullback, put the game on ice with a two-yard touchdown plunge in the final stanza. Hammond High 7, GRC 6. . . . The Wildcats blocked Ron Cudek’s extra point attempt in the second quarter and that was the eventual margin of defeat for the Pioneers. GRC led at halftime, 6-0, via Czyz’s two-yard, second-quarter touchdown. Hammond scored midway through the third period and Don Lambert booted the all-im- portant extra point, which spelled finis to the high hopes of the fighting Clarkites. Emerson 27, GRC 0. . . . Suffering an obvious let-down after the HHS game, Clark was no match for the high-powered Emerson outfit. The Norse put the game safely away as early as the initial period. GRC 28, Hammond Morton 7. . . . Playing most of the game with substitutes, the Pioneers rolled to an easy victory over an inexperienced Morton eleven. Tom Czyz scored two TD’s while Cudek booted three extra points. Upper: Cudek picks up yardage against Morton as Czyz blocks. Center: Bonds takes off around right end while Hammond defenders close in. Lower: Czyz about to be buried by horde of Morton tacklers after good gain. Upper: Cudek throws vital block to spring Bonds free in Hammond tilt. Center: Muta brought down by Emerson defenders following long gain. Lower: Cudek and Czyz lead interference for Bonds in Hammond High game. GRC 21, Morgan Park Military 0. . . . Cudek, Ted Muta and lineman Don Frunk all got into the scoring act in Clark’s 21-0 conquest of Morgan Park Military Academy. The game was played in the afternoon on the cadets’ field in Chicago. Frunk realized a lineman’s dream in the third period when he recovered a Morgan Park fumble in the end zone for a touchdown. GRC 14, Hammond Tech 7. . . . Half- back Ron Cudek was the big man in this game as he scored one TD, passed for an- other and kicked two extra points. The Tiger’s lone score came in the third period and tied the score then at 7-7. Tech’s final victory bid was halted, late in the fourth period, on Clark’s 17-yard line. GRC 14, Lew Wallace 12. . . . Again Ron Cudek’s unerring toe kept the Pioneers beyond reach of the opposition. It was sim- ply a case of Wallace blowing their conver- sion attempts while Cudek made his. Cudek’s passing and Ted Muta’s brilliant running were instrumental in the victory as Clark was forced to come from behind and erase a 6-0 first quarter deficit. Whiting 19, GRC 13. . . . Clark went into this climatic battle with bitter cross- town rival, Whiting, on the wings of a four- game winning skein. The Pioneers were heavily favored to trounce the Oilers but as has happened so many times in the past in this series, season records meant nothing and the underdog Oilers pulled a big upset. Whiting blocked a Cudek punt early in the first period and converted it into a touchdown. The Pioneers tied the score in the second quarter with Tom Czyz going over from three yards out and Cudek con- verting. The lead was short lived, however, as Whiting retaliated immediately and marched 5 5 yards to take a 13-7 halftime lead. Whiting wrapped up the game early in the third period when they recovered a GRC fumble and turned it into another TD. Clark’s final score came with only seconds remaining in the game, Czyz going over for the score. 50 Row 1: D. Frunk, T. Muta, D. Girman, R. Kantowski, G. Kamins ' u, K. Bonds, R. McCampbclI.

This organization honors all the boys who put out more than average to earn their major letters. Basil Kristoff received the All-Around C Club award at the annual banquet in the spring. In football the most valuable went to Ron Cudek; the best mental attitude to John Stasny. In basketball BobVarshal was voted most valu- able with Holton Easter getting the best mental attitude award. 1952 awards for most valuable in baseball and track went to Bob Figler and John Stasny, respec- tively. Ray Kovach was given the most valuable in wrestling. In cross country Bob Chovanec received the award as did Andy Gabor in tennis. Ron Cudek got the award for golf.

The Pioneers ended their season with a very respectable 14-8 mark. By beating Hammond, 61-49, early in December, Clark ended a period of five years in which they hadn’t been able to turn the trick against the perennially tough Wildcats. Just before Christmas, the Pioneers traveled to Clinton, Iowa, to engage the state’s number one team. The Shieldsmen put up a terrific battle before bowing, 69 - 66 . Then came the Holiday tourney and Clark swept honors in an impressive manner. They nipped Rennsselaer in an overtime thriller and then blasted Noll Central to cop the crown. Basil Kristoff, senior for- ward, set a new GRC scoring mark in the championship contest by sizzling the nets for 29 points. Late in January, South Bend-Riley was rated as the seventh best team in the state of Indiana. Clark blasted them out of the " Big Ten”, 5 5-52, and immediately were tabbed as contenders for Sectional honors. Finally Sectional tourney time rolled around completely with pep rallies, banners and high feelings. The Pioneers opened impressively enough, blasting cross town rival Whiting, 66 - 5 5. However, a keyed-up East Chicago- Roosevelt quintet put a sudden end to GRC championship hopes by edging the fighting Clarkites, 65-60, in a real scorcher. Basil Kristoff set a host of GRC records during the year; total points, most points in one game, most free throws in one game (15) and a new free throw mark for one season. Row 1: Mr. Hein, C.

The Pioneers started slowly, breaking even in their first four games. Then the Blue-and-White really got rolling on a winning streak that took them to the top rung on the Conference ladder. It was during this period that ace hurler, Dick Demkovich, tossed a no-hit ball game against Horace Mann on the GRC diamond. Dick allowed only one ball to be hit to the outfield. Clark reached the pinnacle of its success in the first Hammond High game as the Pioneers dealt Joe Baliga his only loss of the year. Centerfielder Tom Dulack broke the game open in the sixth inning with a bases-loaded homerun. Tolleston dealt the Pioneers their death blow with a 12-1 verdict, which seemed to break the backs of the GRC line. It was downhill for Clark the rest of the way. Baliga was thwarted in a bid for a no-hit game against the Pioneers by MVP Bob Figler’s home- run. It was Clark’s only hit. The Pioneers did, however, end the season on a sweet note, trouncing Gary Emerson, 11-5, and knocking the Norse out of a possible title tie with Hammond High. Uennis dJea m (Lops Runner-up dpot in Cdonf erence Standi my Under the able leader- ship of tennis coach, Mr. Ger- ald Royer, Clark’s racketmen compiled a fine record of 6-2 in the Western division con- ference to conclude a very successful season. Although the Pioneers could never pull the trick on champion Hammond Tech, they possessed double victories over Hammond High, E. C. Washington and E. C. Roose- velt. Left to Right: Standing: G.

Clark’s ’52 cindermen, due mainly to the loss of some nine letter winners, suffered a rather dismal season. For the first time in GRC’s history, city rival Whiting beat the Clarkites. The Pioneers could only mark up one dual meet over Roosevelt and place seventh in the Conference preliminaries on the credit side of the ledger. Basil Kristoff, however, set a new Sectional pole vault rec- ord, vaulting 11 feet, 8 ' 2 inches. He broke his old mark of 11 feet 7V 2 inches. Row 1 : J. Chrustowski, G. Kaminski, R. Pataky, D.

GAC, the Girls Athletic Club, is the only or- ganization at Clark that provides girls with the chance to participate in sports throughout the year. Meeting on the first and third activity periods, the club also sponsors after school sports. Among the most popular are the volleyball and basketball games which conclude in a closely-fought tourney. Ping-pong, tennis at Forsythe Park, bowling at a near-by alley, swimming at the Community Center and baseball in the spring arc offered in an attempt to give each girl a chance to take part in some sport.

These and the nine who were elected last year were chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership and character. New members were ini- tiated at a special assembly in the spring before the student body. The faculty-chosen group is sponsored by Miss Yeva McAtee, director of guidance. Stu As a subsidiary organ of the Student Council, the Student Panel acts as an enforcement body to carry out the plans of the Council. The major ac- tivity of the Student Panel during the last year was to successfully aid in carrying out a clean-up campaign of lockers. Basil Kristoff, the vice-president of the Student Council, acted as President of the Panel, and ap- pointed the members (four seniors and two from every other class) in conjunction with Bud Suther- land, Student Council President, and Mr. Arnold Corder, advisor. dent j cinel Row 1: D.

Clark is especially fortunate in having such an organiza- tion in the Student Council, made up of two representatives from each homeroom. Headed by President Bud Sutherland, Vice-President Basil Kristoff, Secretary Peggy Eberly and Treasurer Tom Czyz, who were elected by the student body in March of 19 52, several activities were undertaken. The major project undertaken by the Council was the sponsorship of a magazine drive, the proceeds of which were used to purchase an electric scoreboard for the football field. The athletic department was also aided by funds which went towards the purchase of new wrestling mats. As a forum for discussion, the Student Council talked about con- duct problems and safety hazards, and successfully conducted a drive to clean up lockers. On Monday, March 23, for the first time at Clark, student iden- tification cards were issued as a final major project. Row 1: B. Sutherland (President), P. Eberly (Secretary). Row 2: O. B.

This assembly was conducted by the Forum Club, under the sponsorship of Mr. Arthur Erickson. The purpose of the Forum Club is to give students an oppor- tunity to freely discuss their views of politics and current events. Membership is open to any junior or senior student.

Latin students, in their attempts to " come, see and conquer” Latin, can learn a great deal about the customs and culture of the Romans in the first and second year Latin Clubs. Typical Roman games and holidays, including a Saturnalia party, are parts of the programs planned for each meeting. Finding out more about our neighbors south of the border is the main purpose of the Spanish Club. Meetings are informal and held twice a month during the activity period. Dancing the Mexican Hat Dance is one of the activiti es that stole the interest of the members.

Fancy formations executed with precision, drums beating and trumpets in a blazing fanfare — the band marches down the field during football season. But march- ing is only a small part of the band’s work. Last year two con- certs were given, as well as an ex- change concert in South Bend. Participating in the state and city solo and ensemble contests, in- dividual players had the opportunity to use their talents, and under the supervision of the band director, Mr. Carlyle Snider, won more firsts than in any other preceding year.

Because an increasing number of organizations use the stage fa- cilities at one time or another, it is necessary to have a dependable and efficient group of students to operate them. This year the Stage Production Staff, consisting of 64 members, was under the direction of Miss Oza Cunningham; student stage man- ager D on Broderick, and assistant stage manager Tom Fasiang. Helping with stage setting and lighting for all major productions put on at GRC were the services performed by the boys of the Stage Crew while make-up, costumes and properties were the duties of the girls. . . . Exciting games, romantic dances, concerts and plays — Yes, we at Clark can look back on 1953 as a happy, fun-filled year. Summer ends and autumn be- gins as school opens. . . . And no matter how we groan, Clark stu- dents are usually happy to start school again. . . . Activities soon be- gin. . . . Football games are im- portant, and the band has a break. . . . Dances are fun, and often informal in jeans and plaid shirts. . . . Even during the school day there are breaks. . . . For assemblies ranging from student talent shows to professional groups. . . . And the popcorn machine in the lunchroom is busy after school as students pre- pare to leave. The Booster Club scored another first when it sponsored a football rally prior to the big game of the season — the game between Clark and its arch- rival, Whiting. Festivities began at the Clark baseball field at 6:30 with the entry of the queen, Grace Kaminsky, and her court, Gerry Brenkus and Martha Cutka. These girls were chosen by the popular vote of the student body. After the coronation of the queen, each member of the team was introduced by Miss Dolores McCampbell, Booster Club sponsor. The giant bon-fire was then lit and the crowd, under the leadership of the cheerleaders, gave forth with school songs and yells. ’ wr ' " ' w m fL s$m , a V 4 ll « m 1 m M M JM-Sckoot PL,, Jlte c-Hiltle VfjinLdteL Joan Wachel Nancy Juhasz Jim Hazard Jan Silagi Royal Fruehling Jean McFadden Mora McLaren Lord Rintoul Rob Dow Gavin Disharc Carol Bodefeld Margaret Dishart Sandra Krill Babbie Larry Larson Dr. McQueen Ronald Foust Sergeant Halliwell Patricia Foale Effie Joan Sielski Nancy Webster Bernard Smitka Sanders Larry Della Rocco Pearl Ann Kamin Tom I.uchcne Ann Madsen Richard Miller Peggy Lou Nuckols Kent Shoemaker Barbara Tolin Weavers and Townpeople Winter brings with it many of Clark’s most looked- forward-to activities . . . like the Winter Concert.

Congratu- lations and welcome to the future ! In this future, Inland Steel’s opportun- ities are yours . . . opportunities open to high school grads.

There are careers to follow in metallurgy and chemistry. And there are opportun- ities in the office and clerical fields. The job of production — making the steel needed to keep America strong — offers a challenge to alert, young men. You can have a “get-ahead” future through Inland’s training opportunities. You can get apprentice or on-the-job training to become more skilled in your trade.

Inland has been in the busy Calumet Region for more than a half-century. We’ll be here in the future, too, because we’re a basic industry, making a product used by everyone, including the housewife opening a can of peas and the G.I. firing an artillery shell. I nland Steel Company serves the nation — and it can serve you, too, in the exciting days ahead. Inland Steel Company, 3210 Watling St., East Chisago, Ind.

That Madura Danceland was once located in the middle of a large amusement Park (Broad walk) and was moved in one section from where Lever Bros is now? Two horses pulled the huge Terpsi- chorean Palace in a moving feat that astounded the midwest. So the next time when you are out tripping the light fantastic at Madura’s you’ll find this copy will make for excellent conversation with your partner, especially if she’s the quiet type. Also mention that the dance floor is the original one. Still the “master- piece in maple wood” — no steps to climb, no posts, no springs — even though it’s called “a perfect spring cusion floor”. Actually, though, it is a “floating floor”. One of the reasons it was so difficult to move i.e. being a separate wall from the ballroom itself. Over 1,800,000 people have danced on the floor at Madura’s. Not only did such big name dance bands as Russ Morgan, Vaughn Monroe, Griff Williams, Ray An- thony, Jimmy Dorsey and Ralph Flanagan play at Madura’s, but our own regular-night bands such as Mickey Prindl and Johnny Kay would really fool you if a curtain was drawn over the front of our stage. Close your eyes and give a listen. Prove it. NIGHTS TO REMEMBER New Year’s Night Valentine Night St. Patrick Party Easter Sunday Fourth of July Decoration Day Labor Day Halloween Thanksgiving Christmas Night New Year’s Eve A V o r d A I) o u t Dancing Dancing is unquestionably the leading form of recreation practiced the world over. They do it down in the Fiji Islands, over in China, up in Alaska, in the heart of Africa, in Argentine and in Hammond, Ind. (Adv.) They start dancing as soon as they’re able to stand on their pins and they don’t quit as long as they’re able to stand on ’em. Of course, different people in dif- ferent localities go about it a little differently, but it’s dancing just the same and they all get a whale of a kick out of it whether it’s the ka- zatzka or the G.R.C. Polka. Some of it’s pretty violent, some of it’s sedate but all of it’s a lot of fun. It certainly puts folks in a happy frame of mind — you seldom see anyone appei ' r wor- ried or hostile while they’re tripping the light fantastic. Like anything else — in order to get the most out of it you’ve got to be pretty good at it, and the only way you can become proficient at dancing is to enjoy it frequently. RIPPLING RHYTHM “Did Lorraine enjoy her date with Frank list night? “She was never so humiliated in her life. When he started to eat his soup, five couples “got up and began to dance.” IT’S A PROBLEM Since the seats of the new cars Get wider and wider, What excuse can we give To squeeze close beside her? 123 R.
