It replaced Franklin junior high school and West Park elementary school which failed to meet the increasing educational needs of the growing community. This new and modern building, which housed 12 classes plus kindergarten, contained many classrooms and a gymnasium. In 1939 an auditorium, library, science laboratories and several classrooms were added. A cafeteria expanded the facil¬ ities in 1949. Clark Pioneers of the past were very much like the Pioneers of today. They studied hard, held part time jobs, helped at home and still found time to have lots of fun. There are, of course, some noticeable differ¬ ences between the two eras. Today’s food fad of pizza and Pepsis was probably preceded by chocolate malts and almond ice cream; the jitterbug by the fox trot and short haircuts by shoulder length tresses. No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you! It is the wall of the auditorium at half-mast. This phenomenon occurred during a storm when the school was under construction. (1939 PH) 4 Friends, New Classes Senior Dress-up Day was the one time seniors could legally act like freshmen. (1942 PH) Except for the style of clothing, this scene is familiar today. “Standin’ on the corner’, Clarkites rehash the day’s events. (1942 PH) After-game dances held in room 8 celebrated victory or softened the blow of defeat. (1947 PH) YEARS OF PIONEER SPIRIT Place the face! These faculty members participated in the Dad’s-Faculty game. Who won? There are two decidedly different sides to that story! (1940 PH) uic piuiu n aa a grand and glorious event. The e held in the big gym. (1938 PH) Clark has always had enthusiastic cheerleaders to lead loyal fans in spurring athletic teams on to VICTORY! (1940 PH) Early Pioneer Participants Activities and athletics invited the participa¬ tion and held the interest of former Clarkites. Clubs such as Girl Reserves and the Radio club correspond to present-day organizations. GAC, C Club and Hi-Y of yesteryear are familiar clubs to¬ day. These and many others kept the first Pio¬ neers busy while helping to broaden their interests and develop their personalities. Five hundred seventy-seven Clark graduates en¬ gaged in a far more serious activity—World War II. Twenty-three gave their lives. Many grad¬ uates served in Korea also. In the short span of 25 years Clark’s athletic teams have honored her not only with many vic¬ tories and nobly accepted defeats, but also with numerous championships and awards. In 1937 the wrestling team won the State Wrestling Cham¬ pionship. The football team captured the Western Division Title in 1943 and again in 1944. Not to be outdone, the basketball team won the Sectional Tournament in 1943, the Conference Title in 1944 and twice won the Western Division Title. In 1956 the tennis team attained the Western Divi¬ sion Title. The Commando course was designed to prepare Junior and Senior boys physically for their future in the Armed Service. (1943 PH) 7 Pioneers Go Modern ‘Trip the light fantastic’ . . . and it wouldn’t be hard on this obstacle course! There are a few changes made when Mr. Victor Georgas, modern problems substitute teac her, appears on the scene. Tom Roman and Gary Hopperstad try, in vain, to talk Mrs. Jacobs into reversing the decision and canceling their eighth hours. Pioneers have gone modern — in their clothing and hair styles, which is evident when these pictures are compared with those on the previous pages, and even in their daily school schedule. The bright and shining faces of the eight hundred 1957 Pioneers had to appear in their respective home¬ rooms by 8:30. To some this seemed like the middle of the night, but in comparison with the schedule of their predecessors it isn’t quite so bad. They had to report one-half hour earlier—at 8:00! Some Clark- i ' es managed to be punctual because they drove cars to school. Others were saved only by the fact that the school clocks are set five minutes slow! After the 10 minute homeroom period the students, who by this time were wide awake, passed to classes. Some of them had three 55 minute classes before their lunch hour which began at 11:30. Others found it necessary to endure pangs of hunger for they had the later lunch hour at 12:30. This double lunch hour system was instituted when the num¬ ber of students who ate in the cafe¬ teria became to large to serve in one hour. Have you ever wondered ‘for whom the bell tolls’ ? Please except our explanation. The afternoon session, which in¬ cluded three classes for the early lunchers and two for the others, was dismissed at 3:30. Students streamed from the building anxious to get home early or to get to work on time. But some were left behind to pay the consequences (eighth hours) for their misdemeanors. To facilitate club meetings an ac¬ tivity period was established a few years ago. On Wednesday the first, second and third periods are each shortened 15 minutes. This extra time provides for an activity period between first and second period. Amid requests for autographs everyone feels like a movie star when the POWDER HORN Betty Jean Koney, Marge Lattak and Ruth Ann Rudser confer with Mr. Antilla . . . looks serious, doesn’t it? Joe Mehok and Dave Paskwietz choose their name cards while Dick Dubish orders his from Delores Petri. Jim Agnes declares his state of bankruptcy to Joan Seaman. 9 Daily Except Saturday and Sunday Six hours a day, five days a week, 36 weeks a year Clark students are spectators, members or participants in classes such as these. The variety of classes offered prepares GRC pupils for the future while teaching them of the past. Three courses are offered at Clark: college prepara¬ tory, commercial and general. The classes a student elects, with the help of his counselor, depend on the course he is following. Each has specific requirements for its completion. All students, however, are required to take health, two years of physical education, three years of social studies, English, science and mathe¬ matics (the number of years depending of the course being pursued). Liver, lungs, heart ... In Mr. Norman Banas’ health class Carol Biel and Donna Bragiel prove nothing here has changed in 25 years. Pat Wachel, Marge Lattak and Irene Horvat learn how to operate two new pieces of business machinery. Stress is proportional to strain according to Hooke’s Law and that is what Robert Blasko and Tony Priesol are demonstrating in physics. 10 Richard Hughes, John Kirn, Fred Kieras and James Nagy are attempting to solve right triangles in their study of trigonometry. Getting a preview of some of the materials they will use in biology are James Phillips, Joanne Bernicky, Allan Susoreny and Mary Ann Biel. Looks like kindergarten but really it’s not. Ronn Patterson, Pat Sandrick and Bill Rosenstein are taking IQ tests in modem problems class. 11 Clarkites Strive to Perfect In order to meet the wants and needs of Clark stu¬ dents, a German class was added to the curriculum this year. Along with Latin and Spanish, the other languages offered at Clark, German prepares college preparatory students for further and advanced study. While learning the mechanics of the language stu¬ dents also become acquainted with the country and the people from which it is derived. Shop, sewing and cooking help to prepare Clarkites for their future, whether the student plans to have a career in one of these fields or to use the skill in his daily life. Besides the smashed thumbs, pricked fin¬ gers and burned morsels gained throughout the year, students pursuing these courses gain much knowledge and skill. In addition they profit by material items. Shop classes construct useful articles, sewing classes make various pieces of clothing which they model in their annal style show and the cooking classes gain in more ways than one by the luscious goodies they concoct! In Mrs. Rebckah Eddy’s German class, Camille Kessler puzzles over a translation while David McClure and Marcia McCutchcon trans¬ late ‘Der Ratze fangt die Maus’. While Joan Dubeck and Kay Kollmar work at sewing machines, Annette Gajewski fits Maryann Koselke’s blouse for her. Dances Highlight School Year Clarkites are frequently seen in the gym on Satur¬ day afternoon hauling ladders around, dangling from the balcony and throwing rolls of crepe paper to each other. These actions are entirely normal—they are decorating the gym for a dance! Their efforts prove to be most worthwhile, for the gym that houses classes and athletic teams five days a week is transformed into a splendid ballroom for the week¬ end dance. Ranging in type from sock hops to semi-formals, dances are sponsored by school clubs and classes throughout the school year. Special events were featured at several dances this year. The main attraction of the C Club dance and of the Junior class dance was the crowning of royal¬ ty. At the “Basket Ball”, sponsored by Booster club, varsity, B-Squad and Freshman basketball teams and their respective cheerleaders were introduced. An autograph dance was given by the POWDER HORN staff to celebrate the publication of the 1957 PH. “Blue Moon”, a dress-up dance, was given by the Junior Class on November 10. The crowning of a king and queen was the main attrac- 14 Another Class . . . Come and Gone At last the long-awaited moment arrived. Adorned in blue caps and gowns 165 members of the Class of 1956 received their diplomas on June 7, 1956. Mr. James Sparks, president of the Class of 1935, Clark’s first gradu¬ ating class, delivered the commencement address. We Could Have Danced All Night! Madura’s Danceland was the setting for the Junior Prom, “Mo- dance band provided dreamy music from 8:30 until 11:30. Many ments to Remember”, on June 1, 1956. Pat de Mure and his couples attended the Post Prom Party. Curtain Going Up Junior Class Play Trials and tribulations of a high school dramatics teach¬ er producing her first play are revealed in this comedy by Gregory Johnston. Miss Irene Burgess (Beth Madsen) is faced with the disappearance of the playbooks on the first day of rehearsal, a grouchy janitor Mr. Tony Peterson (Robert Shoemaker), a stage-struck leading lady Loretta Fuller (Crystal Ruskin) and several mixed-up romances. Other characters were Nancy Leveridge (Barbara Dean) who vied for the leading role in Miss Burgess’s play; Jocko Guthrie (Tom Regeski) the male star in Miss Burgess’s play; Andrew Fullbright (Michael Benne) the jealous lover of Lo¬ retta; Mr. Norman Carter (Frank Lenz) the suitor of Miss Burgess who was futilely pursued by Miss Carolyn Moran (JoAnn Stolarz); Milt Sanders (Ron Hooper) the practical joker of Miss Burgess’s cast; and Elsie Hunter (Ruth Ann Rudser) Miss Burgess’s stage director. Janet Young (Judy Pivarnik), Sylvia Moore (Phyllis Burosh) and Joan White (Sue Cox) were cast members; Buck O’Hara (Douglas An¬ derson) was the matinee idol of ‘the play within the play’; Miss Henrietta Rivers (Ruth Klemm) critic of Miss Burgess’s teaching techniques; Kyle Roberts (Pat Sandrick) Broadway actress and aunt of Jocko; Mrs. Young (Lora Lee Throm), Mr. Leveridge (Fred Thurston) and Mrs. Adkins (Marcia Tolchinsky) along with townspeople John Redding, Bill Liehe and Lorraine Mazur congratulated Miss Burgess. “Jocko! Andy! Don’t fight! I’m not worth it!” Loretta and Nancy separate the two boys who are fighting over Loretta’s affection. " But Papa, Randolph will be killed!” In Miss Burgess’s play Loretta urges her father Andrew to give up a duel. “Buck, Buck, sign my program!” (Oh, what a man!) Buck O’Hara is chased by his ardent admirers. 16 As the curtain went down on the final act of Curtain GoingUp, the cast took its bow. 17 “Miss Burgess, just look at all the telegrams congratulating you on the play.” With their director Miss Burgess, Elsie Hun¬ ter, Sylvia Moore and Joan White look over congratulatory messages. “Humph! Teachers yet! I ain’t seen ‘sech’ goins-on since I come here.” Mr. Peterson expresses his feelings about the ac¬ tions of Mr. Carter and Miss Burgess. You Can t Take It With You All — School Play This merry comedy about the madcap Sycamore family and their goofy diversions was written by Moss Hart and George Kaufman. Uninhibited is the word for this zany clan. Mrs. Sycamore (Marcia Tolchinsky) became an aspiring authoress when a typewriter was delivered to her home by mistake. Her husband Paul (Frank Lenz) and Mr. DePinna (Richard Render), an iceman who made a delivery eight years earlier and never got around to leaving, manufacture fireworks in the basement. Essie (Jean Goginski), the Sycamores’ daughter, makes candy when she’s not taking ballet lessons from the ‘mad Russian’ Kolenkhov (Don Antkowiak). His protege Olga (Judy Grogan), ‘the Duchess’, whips up some cheese blintzes when she visits the Sycamores. Essie’s husband Ed (Dennis Matusko) prints Trotsky’s maxims on his press in the living room and distributes them with her candy. Alice (Shirley Ringgenberg), the Syca¬ mores’ other daughter and the only normal member of the fam¬ ily, falls in love with her employer’s son Tony Kirby (Brian Fry). Their romance is nearly wrecked when Tony’s parents (Ruth Klemm and Fred Thurston) pay an unexpected visit to the Sycamores and find them acting ‘naturally’. Gay Wellington (Jo Ann Dudzik), a has-been actress, camps in the Sycamores’ front room in an inebriated condition and helps to give the Kirbys an undesirable impression. Martin Vanderhoff (Michael Benne), the wise grandfather, is mistakenly accused of with¬ holding income tax from the government. Henderson (Ron Hooper) and the other government agents (Bill Etheridge and Bob Passage) are appalled by this eccentric family. Rheba (Kathy Zvonar), the Sycamores’ maid, and her boy friend Donald (Larry Rollinson) add to the hilarity of the play. “My Pavlova, art is only achieved through perspiration!” Ko¬ lenkhov and Essie work, work, work toward her debut. “Really, Tony, are you sure this is the night?” gasps Mrs. Kirby to her son when they vis ; t the Sycamores on the wrong night and find them en¬ gaged in their ‘normal’ pur- 18 Grandpa, Rheba, Paul, Don¬ ald and Mrs. Sycamore listen eagerly to Gay Wellington’s inebriated chatter. “I don’t care if you don’t be¬ lieve in jncome tax, you have to pay it!” roars Henderson to Grandpa. The ‘family’ gathers around the table for dinner and Grand¬ pa asks the blessing, “Well, Sir.” 19 Sports Panorama in Clark ' s Silver Year Cheerleaders Crystal Ruskin, Arlene Mini- uk, Cooky Kaleta and Elaine Doerr lead a rousing cheer at the pep session held prior to the Clark-Whiting football game.

A personality in his years at Clark acquires ideals, beliefs, friends, activities and interests and, in turn, imparts the benefits of these to his school. Helping Us to Enter the World, Heads High Surely there could be no better time for prospect or retrospect than the occasion of a twenty-fifth anniversary. Since 1932, when its doors were opened to them, George Rogers Clark has been serving the boys and girls of the Robertsdale area of Hammond and, f or their secondary school years, also many from the Lincoln and Irving districts. The class of 1957 brings the number of graduates to a total of 3315. Many of these graduates have distin¬ guished themselves in business and professional lives and the names of more than 600 are to be found on the honor roll of those who served their country in World War II. Early in the history of the school the following creed was adopted: “To the best of our ability we shall endeavor to faithfully serve our school, Honor and uphold its name, Strive for high scholarship, citizenship, and sportsmanship.” With true pioneer spirit, characteristic of the great patriot for whom the school was named, successive stu¬ dent groups have striven to make that creed operative and effective, and as we look into the years ahead we doubt not that each class to come will staunchly lend its efforts to add luster to the name of George Rogers Clark. 24 Members of a Board Work for a Brighter Future Board of Education—Seated: Dr. H.

Mil¬ ler, assistant superintendent Lights of Guidance and Wisdom Show the Way Guidance at Clark is an important part of all phases of the school program. For the students, guidance is the direction which enables them to understand themselves and to develop their poten¬ tialities. It is encouragement for the desire to learn, the determination to succeed, the courage to face responsibility and the will to accept the success or failure of their own decisions. Miss Veva McAtee, director of guidance and counselor, has her Bachelor of Arts degree, Master of Arts degree and an Honory Degree in Science. Mr. Arvo Antilla, who is counselor and in charge of job opportunities, has his Bachelor of Science degree.

The teachers new at Clark this year were Mr. Norman Banas, Miss Kathryn Carlson, Mr. Bernard Charlet, Mrs. Eva Proctor, Mr. Steve Stavros and Mrs. Shirlee Wil¬ liams. In joining the faculty at Clark, they became members of one of the best trained and most experi¬ enced faculties possible in any high school. 26 Join Faculty Clark teachers do their utmost to prepare their students academically and socially for the future. They participate in extra¬ curricular activities to benefit the student body, including sponsoring clubs, chaperoning dances and pre¬ senting special assemblies and programs. To promote understand¬ ing between the parents of their students and themselves many teachers participate in the Parent Teacher Association.

They have charge of such tasks as preparing students’ transcripts for college admissions, keeping financial accounts for school clubs and classes and distributing supplies and bulletins to teachers and students. Office Staff — Seated: Mrs. Esther Jacobs, Mr. Hayward’s sec¬ retary; Mrs. Charlene Salle, bookkeeper Standing: Miss Carole Stanton, in charge of supplies Culinary Artists “Hot cross buns! One-a-penny, two-a- penny” . . . this isn’t the price nor the commodity but for a similarly nominal fee a nutritious, savoy, steaming- hot lunch can be purchased in Clark’s cafeteria. Many faculty members and students eat here each day because of the satisfying meals and pleasant service. The stff prepares the food in the morning and serves it piping hot for both lunch h ours. Cafeteria Staff — Seated: Mrs. Mary Vargo, Mrs. Anna Root Standing: Mrs. Christine Krull, Mrs. Lillian Adams Dutiful Dust Chasers “Where’s Fritz? My locker is jammed.” The task of opening jammed lockers constitutes only one of several various jobs performed by Head Custo¬ dian Fritz Krause and the Janitorial staff. They spend many long hours sweeping and cleaning the halls and classrooms and keeping the grounds well in trim. It is through their efforts that the school is kept in ex¬ cellent condition. 29 Maintenance — Seated: Mrs. Dorothy Loera, Mrs. Angeline Przybyla, Mrs. Mary Pindiak.

This tradition of presenting the key, one class to another, was began by the first graduating class in 1935. 30 The Class of 1957 was officially organized in Febru¬ ary of 1954 under the direction of Miss Alice Bollin. Earl Fruehling was elected president with Jim Spataro as vice president, Dorothy Figler as secretary and Maureen Raycroft as treasurer. The most outstanding event of our ‘green year’ was our class dance, “Moonlight Sere¬ nade”, on May 28, 1954. Don Kurcz was chosen president of our Sophomore Class in the fall of 1954. Assisting Don were vice president Bob Ciesco, secretary Dorothy Figler and treasurer Frank Lenz. On February 28, 1955, we presented “Mardi Gras Mingle”. In March we chose our class rings and in April we selected “Hitch Your Wagon to a Star” as our class motto, red and silver as our class colors and the tea rose as our class flower. As juniors we made our debut as upperclassmen. We elected Bob Ciesco, president; Tom Regeski, vice president; Dorothy Figler, secretary; and Nan Collins, treasurer. “Snowflake Whirl” was our third successful class dance on December 3, 1955. We presented our class play, “Cur¬ tain Going Up”, on April 13, 1956. Twenty-two juniors took part in this hilarious comedy. Highlighting this year was our Prom, “Moments to Remember”, held on June 1, 1956, at Madura’s Danceland with Pat DeMure’s Band. The post-prom party was at a local restaurant. These certainly were ‘moments to remember’! At last, vye were seniors! We chose Bob Ciesco to lead our class as president, with Dick Dubish as vice president, Dorothy Figler as seerretary and Mike Benak as treasurer. “Starlight Rhapsody”, our last class dance, was held on December 15, 1956. Refreshments and a band added to this unforgettable occasion. As time passed we were busy ordering name cards, announcements, graduation robes and preparing for our banquet and the senior assembly. We shall often think of our happiest days — our high school days.

Each of you had some¬ thing to offer and many of you offered much of your time, talent and energy. At times it seemed that you were letting me down but seme faithful ones always came through and success was ours. I shall miss you next year, bu t I shall never forget you. Now that you are leaving high school I ex¬ tend best wishes for your success and happiness. I would like to leave with you a thought which may be as helpful to you as it has been to me: “Know thyself, be thyself, accept thyself and allow no exceptions”.

Paskwictz Governing the student body of George Rogers Clark is the function of the Student Council. It is composed of representa¬ tives and alternates who are elected from their respective homerooms. To be eligible for mem¬ bership on the council, one must maintain a “C” average or better throughout the school year. This year the council’s main objec¬ tive was to improve the student attitude both in and out of school. The first step in attempt¬ ing to accomplish this goal was the establish¬ ment of the Student Safety Commission. To celebrate the silver anniversary of Clark special activities were sponsored by the council. During the year the council mem¬ bers also presented a program for the PTA and sponsored a magazine drive. Future assem¬ blies will be sponsored by the profits from this drive. Under the jurisdiction of the vice- president of Student Council is the Student Review Board. Violators of the code of stand¬ ards for student conduct are reported to the board. The offenders are acquitted or punished justifiably by their fellow students. Student Council Cabinet — Row One: R. Patterson, president; N. Noblitt. secretary; D. Petri, treasurer; D.

For several years the PN has been awarded the highest honor possible in the National Scholastic Press Association judging, ‘ALL AMERICAN’, for presenting a neat and accurate account of all school activities. This year the paper was accepted to the Quill and Scroll Society, a journalistic honor association. Special entertaining editions of the Pioneer News for Thanks¬ giving, Christmas.

New ideas gained by the editors while attending the Indiana High School Journalism Institute were introduced in the 1957 yearbook. Special features include a full color picture and, for the first time, studio pictures of the teachers. Much credit is due to the advertising staff which sold $1650 worth of ads, a record amount. Seven hundred books, more than ever before, were sold by the subscription staff. Working to make the yearbook a success were 36 staff members. Mr. George Muir advised the staff and sponsored the publication. Shown looking at the plans for the 1957 POWDER HORN are Pat Schultz, associate editor, and Nan Collins, editor.

The purpose of the club is to ac¬ quaint members with vocational oppor¬ tunities in medical professions, and the rewarding experiences in aiding liumani ty. White Caps Any girl who is interested in acquiring more knowl¬ edge about the nursing profession is welcome to join the Future Nurses’ club. Some of the members become seri¬ ously interested in pursuing a career in nursing while others are helped to realize that they are not suited for such a career. To acquaint the members with the various aspects of the field of nursing is the purpose of the club. This year representatives from various schools of nursing in this area informed the girls about their nursing programs. In addition there were also representatives from the Nurse Corps of the Army, Navy and Air Force and from specialized fields such as surgical and pediatric nursing.

Membership was limited to those students who were enrolled in biology and to students who had been members previously. Divided into two groups, one section met after school and the other held meetings during activity period. The members work¬ ed on any type of project which interested them par¬ ticularly. Because the organization is a work club, no officers were elected and no fund-raising project was necessary. 69 With the Future in Mind A relatively new club at Clark is the Conservation club which is in its second year of operation. Under the sponsorship of Miss Wanda Wilharm the members make a constant and persistant effort to understand and learn the urgency and necessity of conserving their natural resources. The aim and purpose of the Conservation club is embraced in the Conservation pledge which reads “I give my pledge as an American to save and faithfully defend from waste the natural resources of my country — its soil and its minerals, its forests, waters and wildlife.” Synchronized to Serve Preparing a gift box of food for a needy family at Thanksgiving time and constructing nut cups and gifts for hospitalized children during the Christmas season occupied the Junior-Senior Girls’ Club of Chris¬ tian Service. They also found time during the latter part of the school year to sponsor a dance. Under the direction of Mrs. Shirlee Williams, sponsor, the club met during activity period on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Rae Lemmon.

According to tradition they sponsored the first dance of the school year, “The Hi-Y Mixer”. Proceeds from this dance were donated to the World Service Fund. Another dance was given by them later in the year. Several members, with their sponsor Mr. Paul Wil¬ kinson, attended the state conference in Muncie. Selling milk in the lunchroom, checking coats at dances and selling football and basketball schedule pen¬ cils constituted some of the activities of the Freshman- Sophomore Hi-Y.

For the girls these jobs ranged from applying make-up to making costumes and locating properties. The boys’ responsibilities in¬ cluded constructing and situating scenery, regulating lights and adjusting the curtain. Letters were awarded to those members .who had accumulated 120 hours of service. Those who had a total of 150 hours were presented with gold pins. When in Rome . . .

To become a member of Modern Dance one must pass several dif¬ ferent tests. After several try-out sessions Miss Leota Kenzie, sponsor of the group, chose the new members. Because this organization is the only one of its sort in the Calumet region, it is often featured at special programs for other schools and at Parent Teacher Association meetings. In addition to these special pro¬ grams, the group gave a joint performance with the vocal music department at the annual Spring concert. Some Senior members of modern dance demonstrate the correct way to leap.

Their efforts were directed toward presenting con¬ certs with Hammond High’s orchestra in February and again in May. The best players on all instruments were sent to Manchester to join musicians from other schools in presenting a concert with the college orchestra. Soloists and ensembles participated in the city and state con¬ tests and the entire orchestra played in the Hammond Music Festival. “Sleighride Fantasy”, the orchestra’s dance held on December 21, and their annual bake sale were the money¬ making projects this year.

To prevent this from happening at a crucial moment, preceding concerts and contests special practice sessions are held in addition to the regular fourth period practice. Under the direction of Mr. Carlyle Snider the 65 piece band performed during the half-time at home football games, presented concerts in January and in May, participated in the Hammond Music Festival and Majorettes — J.

Instead of having a dinner as their money-making project this year, the band members sold fudge. At the conclusion of this project the band was $675 richer. Band funds are used to repair and buy instruments and to finance trips. Band members may earn letters and chevrons as well as solo and ensemble medals.

Members of Booster club sold shakers, Clark buttons and introduced the sale of Clark decals this year. Their dance, “The Basket Ball”, was given to promote the sale of season basketball tickets Money collected from these projects was used to purchase paper and paints necessary for the traditional signs and helped finance trips to out-of- town games. Organized in 1952, the club this year had over 250 members who cheered the Pioneer teams on to victory. Karen Ogrcn, Rosalie Bebenek, Bev Macy, Diane Soraparu.

Clark Royalty One of the greatest thrills a Clark girl can know is to have a title of royalty bestowed upon her. The dream of owning a royal title is familiar to many girls and for four Clark girls it came true this year. Delores Petri was crowned Homecoming Queen at the pep assembly held prior to the Clark-Whiting football game. Highlighting the Junior class dance was the coro¬ nation of Judy Grogan as Queen. Dan Przybyl was chosen King to reign with her. Crystal Ruskin was elected by Clark lettermen to reign as their “Sweetheart” at the C Club dance. Amid starlight and snowflakes Loretta Woj- R cik was selected Princess of the Senior class dance. Jim jl Kokenis, as Prince, shared honors with her. These royal Clarkites presided over some of the top I events at Clark and added considerably to festivities of 1 the year. Homecoming Queen and Court: B. Kosmoski, attendant; D. Petri, Queen; R.

The opening game promised much from the Aldrichmen for with two seconds remaining in the first half and Morton ahead 12-0, Don Kurcz’s 15 yard pass found Dick Dubish in the end zone. Later, with five minutes left in the game, Clark took possession on its own 43 yard line. Again pin-point passing put the ball in Morton territory. By spirited passing and running Clark scored, kicked the extra point with less than one minute to go and won in true Pioneer fashion. E. C. Roosevelt 33, Clark 7 . . . Don Kurcz hit Dick Dubish with a 50 yard touchdown pass for Clark’s lone score after Roosevelt had scored early in the first period. The Pioneer line, a bit shaky during the first half, held the Rough Riders to a single touchdown in the second half. E. C. Washington 19, Clark 7 . . . The Pioneers had Wash¬ ington shut out for three quarters but in the final period the Senators tore loose for 19 points. When Mike Benak hit Dick Dubish with a 19 yard pass the Pioneers scored. Rensselaer 33, Clark 28 . . . After Rensselaer’s Bombers had scored on the opening kickoff, Clark’s Pioneers fought back and Mike Benak scored on a one yard plunge.

The lead changed hands time and again with Bombers holding it at the finish of the contest after a final touchdown play with 19 seconds re¬ maining. Clark 13, Froebel 7 . . . Driving runs by Clark’s backfield and good support from the line highlighted the Pioneers’ first home game, as Bill Puskas returned a punt 42 yards to set the play for the first touchdown. In the fourth quarter a four yard line plunge put the gridmen ahead 13-7. Kurcz missed this conversion after making eight in a row. Hammond High 35, Clark 0 . . Hammond High’s Wild¬ cats broke loose in the first half to score 28 points but were tamed in the second half as the Pioneers allowed them to score only one touchdown. Don Kurcz paced a Clark passing attack which netted 141 yards but three interceptions killed any scoring ideas. Mike Benak also threw three passes to help in the attack. Clark 20, Hammond Tech 20 ... In the first period Don Kurcz scored from the six yard line ending the drive from the Clark 28. Tech fumbled the kickoff and Clark recovered on the Tigers’ 27 yard line. Early in the second quarter Mike Benak scored Clark’s second touchdown with a plunge of less than a yard. With only one minute and 15 seconds left in the game halfback Chuck Spanburg intercepted a Tech aerial on the Clark five yard line. Clark failed to score again and the con¬ test remained tied at 20-20. Clark 21, Whiting 20 . . . Senior fullback Don Kurcz scored two touchdowns, passed for a third and booted three extra points as Clark gave its Homecoming crowd a thrilling 21-20 victory.

In the South Bend Washington game the Pioneers, trailing at halftime, defeated Washington, 53-46, after a torrid second half. At Valparaiso the roundball squad played one of the most thrilling games of the season. With less than five minutes to play the Pioneers trailed by eight points. In the remaining minutes of game time hot Pioneer shooting, coupled with fine passing and ball-handling, overcame the deficit and secured a three point victory for Clark. In the first game of the Holiday Tournament, played at Whiting this year, Clark faced Roosevelt who had defeated them earlier. The inspired Pioneers defeated the Rough Riders but were stopped by a hot Rensselaer team in the cham¬ pionship game. During the season Mike Benak grabbed 140 offensive and 150 defensive rebounds. Cliff Bartlett, high point man with 244 points, had 52 interceptions and 38 assists. In the course of the year many free throw records were es¬ tablished. Early in the season Art Mehuron’s 13 consecu¬ tive free throws broke the old record of 11 held by Bill Schuhrke. Later John Shields hit 19 consecutive free throws to set a new record. During the Froebel game Dick Majcher hit 13 free throws. Jim Harmon, lanky center, won the annual trophy for the highest free throw percent¬ age, sinking 50 of the attempted 65 for 76.9. By defeating Morton in their first game of the Sec¬ tional Tournament, the Pioneers not only gained revenge on the Governors who had beaten them during the regu¬ lar season play, but maintained the tradition of all basket¬ ball teams coached by Mr. Ed Shields—being victorious in their first sectional clash.

The Settlers defeated Hammond High in the first game, 50-30, and then beat Hammond Tech, 49-26. The Jayvees found themselves trailing at halftime in many contests, but the fight¬ ing Pioneer spirit proved too much for 13 foes. Only three times did their efforts fail them and never were they complete¬ ly overwhelmed. During the season the Set¬ tlers hit 60 percent of their free throws. High point man was Chuck Sapyta with 114 points, fol¬ lowed by Joe Terranova with 103. Homesteaders Ending the season with a record of 10 wins and nine losses were Coach Norm Banas’ freshmen. The Home¬ steaders defeated their cross-town rival Whiting once, East Chicago Roosevelt twice and Irving three times. Their other victories were at the expense of Hammond Tech, Morton, Munster and Valparaiso. In the annual Holiday Tournament the Homesteaders captured second place. They also secured second in the Valparaiso Tournament. An overwhelming victory over Irv¬ ing, 54-11, ended their season. Freshman Basketball Team — Row One: M. Benko, manager; T. Boland. D. Miniuk.

Playing rather streaky ball, they beat the first place Tech Tigers twice, but lost to Gary Lew Wallace and Gary Froebel, who finished seventh and eighth respectively. In the first contest with Whiting, the diamondmen collected only one hit, but capitalized on eight Oiler errors for their first victory, 8-0. One of the highlights of the season came in the eighth inning of the Roosevelt game, when John Figler’s pinch single to right center with two out pushed across the winning run. Later the Pioneers held highly rated Bishop Noll to a one and one tie, which was called after eight innings because of rain. Dick Majcher led the regulars in hitting with .325, collecting 13 hits. Rudy Kutansky paced the team with 11 RBI’s, and Bill Schurhke scored the most runs, 12. The Pioneers finished fourth in the conference behind Gary Tolleston, Hammond Tech and Hammond High. The Diamondmen with strong pitching arms, a tight infield and a speedy outfield were the most balanced team in the re¬ gion.

That evening the annual C Club award was presented to Bill Schuhrke, who was also named one of the region’s top athletes. Mr. Norman Banas and Mr. Steve Stavros, Clark alumni, are the new C club sponsors, initiating ideas for jackets and proper dress. This year C Club members sold programs at all the home football games, and sold popcorn after school and at athletic contests. The profits were used to purchase jackets for the members of a champ¬ ionship team or for members who earned two letters in two sports in two years. To supplement school spirit at athletic contests C Club members who were participating in the game sat together to cheer. November 30 was the date of the C Club dance. Crystal Ruskin was elected C Club Sweetheart by club members at a regular meeting. This began a tradition for the club as they will elect a new Sweet¬ heart every year. Pushing the sale of popcorn at a home football game are Nikki Kutansky, Jim Campbell, Dave Paskwietz and George Vischak. 106 For Ladies Only Participating in many sports and activities constitutes the schedule of members of the Girls’ Athletic club. They started the year by selling refreshments at home football games. Before the fall season was over a picnic was held at Marquette Park. As the year continued the girls played softball, basketball, volleyball, swam and bowled at the near-by lanes. Candidates for membership in GAC must take an active part in two sports. Having fulfilled this requirement they are informally initiated by the Senior girls. During the same week formal initiation is held at a Mother-Daughter Banquet. At the banquet awards, monograms and letters are presented to girls having the required number of points. The main event of the evening is the presentation of a special pin to the senior with the most points. Sophomore members enjoy a game of basketball during an activity period meeting.

The next best thing is to advertise in a school yearbook. Local businesses and industries, by advertising in the 1957 POWDER HORN, enable the Clark student, who will be the adult consumer of tomorrow, to better acquaint himself with their products and services.
