Guidance counselors. Miss Veva McAtee and Mr. Arnold Corder, help students plan for the re¬ quirements of the elected course, thus enabling them to develop their talents and pursue the vocation of their choice. Extracurricular activities also help prepare stu¬ dents for their vocations. Chief among these is cadet teaching, a popular preparation for those planning to enter the field of education. Girls desiring to enter secretarial work often become personal secretaries for coaches, and aspiring nurses devote free periods as assistants to Mrs. Florence Miller in the nurse’s office. Future journalists may join the publication staffs to gain experience. Five to ten percent of all Clarkites take part-time jobs. Working in drugstores, department and dime stores, service stations, medical offices, and grocery stores, they prepare themselves for the future by gaining insight into possible vocations. Guidance counselor Miss Veva McAtee confers with Senior Arlene Matis, giving her helpful information on college requirements and possible future vocations. Earning extra money and acquiring valuable experience, Tom Goldhagen serves as general handyman after school and on weekends at Rushton’s Wespark Pharmacy. Teaching the A B C’s is Jean Makis, Clark student. During her study period, Jean teaches fourth grade as a part of the cadet teaching program offered through F.T.A. 5 SrfdvUviy . . . Front entrance to George Rogers Clark School, 1921 Davis Avenue, Hammond, Indiana Gene Kokenis and Marcia McCutcheon pause for a moment to talk and exchange notes before returning to class. Breaking the monotony of a busy day, Ron Vale and Judy Oliver relax in the shade and share a good joke. Scenes Around School by Sherry Gurevitz Located at 1921 Davis Avenue, in Whiting, George Rogers Clark High School has an enrollment of 800 students, 409 girls and 391 boys. In the grade school and junior high there are 618 pupils. On the three floors of Clark school are a variety of courses taught by 19 women and 21 men instructors. An “early room” has been established this year for students who arrive at school before the doors open at 8:10. In this newly organized room students can study or talk quietly. School begins at 8:30 with a ten minute homeroom period in which announce¬ ments for the day are read. Homeroom period is fol¬ lowed by seven 55 minute periods. In order to accommodate the large number of students who must eat their lunch at school, the practice of staggering the lunch hours is employed. The first lunch hour is at 11:30 and the other at 12:30. On Wednesday of each week the first, second, and third periods are shortened fifteen minutes to pro¬ vide extra time for an activity or club period held between first and second periods. Located two blocks south of school is the athletic field which is used for football and baseball games and track meets. Because the school gymnasium is not large enough to accommodate the huge crowd of Clark boosters, basketball games are played at the Whiting Memorial Gymnasium. Preparing for an afternoon test, Denise Singer and Gretchen Duerr do some diligent last-minute cramming. Diane Dufallo, Cathy Sabol, and Judy Zweig look over their newly acquired POWDER HORNS and exchange autographs. 7 Over 675 students file into the library every day to use its valuable supply of books or to study in its quiet atmosphere. During biology class, Pam Stewart, Ronald Kurek, Andy Barlo, and Diane Wozniak examine and identify the intricate systems contained in the cross section of a tree trunk. “Mixing a magic potion.” Barb Falaschetti and Ron Beitler perform a typical chemistry experiment. This one is con¬ cerned with combining sodium chloride with sulfuric acid. Science Stressed in Curriculum by Ann Marie Chrustowski Science, a growing concern throughout the nation, received extra emphasis at Clark this year as ex¬ pressed by the increase in the enrollment in science classes. Biology, a course required for graduation, boasted a total of 246 students enrolled, while 83 Clarkites learned the laws of physics, and 49 students devoted their time to the study of the chemical com¬ position of matter. In the biology classes students are introduced to the world of one-cell plants and animals and are able to view specimens under the miscroscope. Physics classes study important facts concerning motion, heat, sound, electricity, and related topics. Chemistry students give seven hours a week to the study of matter, chemical equations, and experimen¬ tation. Two extra hours, beside the regular class period, are used for laboratory work by chemistry students. Ed Bojda describes and indicates the important, but minute, parts of a complicated automobile motor to Bob Zato in Mr. Edwin Martin’s physics class. In other science classes students utilize all avail¬ able equipment and information to expand their knowledge. For practical application of scientific principles, students display products of hard and tedious work—science projects. High ranking proj¬ ects compete in local and district contests. Mary Ann Matyi observes Henry Ashcraft as he demon¬ strates the proper procedure for bisecting an angle with a compass in Miss Leah Booth’s geometry class. Figuring out the final step in a commercial math problem, Pam Botos works it out step by step on the board, while Sharon Poplawski and Kathy Davis check her work. One year of math is required for graduation; gen¬ erally, however, students enroll for two or more such courses. College-bound students usually study two or more courses in higher math, algebra and geome¬ try, since these are prerequisites for enrollment in most colleges. Participating in algebra classes were 182 fresh¬ men, while only 52 enrolled in general mathematics. Geometry students numbered 155 as compared to the 125 who took commercial math. Continuing their study of mathematics, 76 students entered the ad¬ vanced algebra classes. Trigonometry, a study of trigonometric functions, and solid geometry, or three-dimensional geometry, provides an insight to math on the college level. These courses are offered on a divided schedule of one semester each to 14 seniors this year. A senior math class, consisting of 45 students, supplements the regular requirements. Also, com¬ mercial math and general math provide valuable ex¬ perience for those planning to enter the business world. Increased Enrollment in Higher Hath by Annette Palenik Mathematics, the most exact of the sciences, de¬ velops in individuals the ability to apply sound and accurate reasoning. A staff of five teachers instructs 650 students in this field throughout the year. “I can’t see a thing!” Bob Slivka tries to adjust the deli¬ cate mechanisms of a transit in trigonometry class, while Mary Ference and Dick Cavanaugh look on. 10 Mr. Arthur Erickson administers a variety of personality Janice Hendricks work with colored yarn, while Ed Swenson, tests to his Modern Problem students. Jim Hermann and Sebert Tucker, and Dale Boyer work with blocks. World Problems: Past. Present, Future by Arlene Matis Social science deals with the social conditions in¬ volved in man’s existence and his well-being as a member of an organized community. This includes sociology, history, geography, and economics. Modern problems, the sociology course at Clark, consists of one semester spent in the study of cul¬ tural anthropology, psychology, and economics. U. S. History is a required course usually taken in the junior year. Upon completion of this course, one should know more of the American way of life and appreciate his heritage. World history, an elective course, is taught in order to give the student an understanding and appreciation of man’s political history and cultural development, which includes progress in science and the fine arts, and a view of world religions. Another phase of social science is world geogra¬ phy, which informs the student of how man lives in the various regions of the world. In order to under¬ stand how man adapts to his surroundings, the student must first understand man’s environment. Therefore, the study of astronomy, meteorology, oceanography, place geography, and man’s adjust¬ ment to these factors make up the curriculum. Each social science contributes in its own way to man’s existence and well-being in this world. David Benak uses a map of the United States to point out the various battlegrounds of the Civil War for Bonnie Eshena in Mr. Charles Stevens’ United States History class. “During the Flowering of the East, the transplanted roots of Other members of the panel, Bob Margeta, Josephine Mucha, English Literature ...” Arlene Antilla gives an outline Joanne Burkat, and Don Dsida take notes and discuss the of early American authors in American Literature class. different topics reported on by each member of the panel. Culture Contributes to Character by Jayne Koelling Verbs, vocabulary, translations, enunciation, read¬ ing, and sketching are familiar phrases as Clarkites enter the study of courses aimed at broadening their cultural horizons. Three years of English and its counterpart, literature, are required for graduation; however, many seniors enroll in advanced composi¬ tion and English literature classes to gain applicable knowledge for literary work in college. While English and literature deal with the native language and culture, courses in German, Latin, and Spanish languages give insight to the cultural as¬ pects of other countries. Language students learn the customs of the countries involved. In the fine arts, speech classes improve the speak¬ ing abilities of 35 students and inform them on the mechanics of speech. Debate and speech students enter district and state competition with other forensic groups while art classes provide training for 34 artisans through a study of the individual elements of design. Miss Helen Wulkow, advanced composition teacher explains the gross illiteracies in writing to Carol Alloway, Don Thoren, and John Hantz as they check over their themes. 12 Mrs. Rebekah Eddy points out the principal parts of a verb to German students, Carol Francisco, Ken Daugherty, and Bob Mullins as they prepare a difficult translation. Learning a language can be fun; Miss Elaine Garcia uses a tambourine to display the interesting side of the Spanish language for Judy Wampler and Richard Miller. ■ “I’m going to drop her!” Jim Price turns a serious skit in Cecilia Yonke observes Allan Susoreny and Betty Small as speech class into a hilarious comedy by almost dropping Jo they put the final touches on their clay models done in Miss Ann Miller during the tragic death scene. Norabel Morrison’s art class. 13 The familiar buzz of the saws and pounding of hammers are heard as Tom Gallager and John Cook work to finish the shop projects that are required every six weeks. Learning the proper way to fit and sew a pair of slacks in advanced sewing class, Dolores Gyurscan receives special help from Miss Marie Nordvig, sewing instructor. Ularkites Develop Useful Skills bv Carole Conrad Learning to set tables, plan menus and parties, girls in home management class become the perfect hostesses. Here Sandra Zagrocki serves tea to Jackie Gillian. Home economics and industrial arts support the useful skills department of the year’s curriculum. Both of these courses are taught as a preparation for college, business, and homemaking. Included in the home economics course are cloth¬ ing and food classes. Students who aspire to be homemakers, designers, or dieticians enroll in these classes. The importance of personal appearance, design, fabrics, color, and wardrobe planning is stressed in clothing classes. Food classes stress the importance of preparing and serving appetizing and well-balanced meals. The knowledge of attractive table setting, well- planned menus, and wise marketing is included. The industrial arts course prepares students for engineering or industrial occupations. Shop class members find that the experience gained by work¬ ing on various projects has not only an industrial preparation, but a practical application. Future en¬ gineers, draftsmen, carpenters, and machinists dis¬ cover mechanical drawing class can be a help in seeing dimensions and geometrical relationships. 14 Jerry Gajos, Ron Vale, Judy Lovrinich, Nancy Silvasi, Susan Pierce, and Sherry Gurevitz increase their speed. Commercialists Acquire Experience by Alta Mitchell In Mr. Steve Stavros’ business machine class, Dolly Ciez, Diane Dufallo, Mike Sulich, and Penny Flesher improve their skills with various types of modern office equipment. In preparation for careers in business, 346 Clark- ites undertook the commercial course. Dexterity is mastered as the student’s fingers travel the key¬ board in beginning and advanced typing classes. Here, 160 students become acquainted with typing techniques, then work to acquire speed and profici¬ ency. Beginning shorthand courses teach word ab¬ breviations while advanced shorthand and tran¬ scription provides practical application of tech¬ niques. Other classes comprising the full commercial course are business training, consumer education, including facts of advertising and buying tech¬ niques, and business law, dealing with business con¬ tracts and policies. Bookkeeping gives students prac¬ tice in keeping accurate records. In addition to practical exercises, students receive a glimpse of how businesses operate through spec¬ ially prepared movies. Valuable equipment, 56 type¬ writers, two electric typewriters, three adding ma¬ chines, two calculators, one duplicator, and one dic¬ tating machine, are utilized to supplement regular classroom experience. 15 pCM . . . “Is there room for my coat?” Jean Makis voices a familiar complaint and wishes her locker was about two feet larger as her locker partner, Penny Flesher packs in her books. “The 8:25 rush.” Every morning students hurry to the main office and buy pencils, paper, notebooks, folders, and a variety of other essential school supplies. Between classes a stampede occurs in the halls. Students lockers, and greet their friends, all in short five minute hurry from room to room, crowd the stairways, rush to their intervals. 16 A Rreak in a llus Schedule by Rudy Almasy After the school day officially begins, numerous intermissions occur in the daily routine of study. An “early room,” room 8, provides a convenient place for Clarkites arriving at school before 8:10 to congregate or study before the school day begins. During the three minute break between periods, students scurry to their next class and find time to talk with their friends. Many have arranged their schedules to include study periods where they can catch up on homework or read. Fourth and fifth periods are the usual lunch hours; during this re¬ treat from activities, students eat their lunches, cram for tests, or converse with their friends. An unexpected interlude in the school year came when the Calumet region was buried under 13 inches of snow. This set a new precedent in Hammond’s history, for all schools were closed for two days. Scattered throughout the school year are various holidays, including B.L.I.E day, Christmas, mid¬ terms, and Easter, when Clarkites can take time for a break in their nine-month academic schedule. The “early room,” room 8, gives sleepy Clarkites a chance to get together before school begins and discuss the day’s activ¬ ities. Here a group of girls relax before the 8:10 bell. Taking a much needed break, a group of girls enjoy their lunch in room 6, the lunch room. Both room 6 and the cafe¬ teria are available for all who eat at school. Between classes and after school Clarkites meet in the halls and at their lockers to discuss the happenings of the day and homework assignments. 17 Ken Brooks, Nancy Carlson, and Joan Liehe, champion sales¬ men in the Student Council magazine drive, receive the prizes they earned by selling magazine subscriptions. The Los Errantes, popular Mexican singing trio, entertained the student body at the Pan-American Day assembly with their renditions of current hits in Mexico. Student l artici by Annette Palenik Besides an emphasis on academic subjects, as¬ semblies provide an opportunity for students to appear as speakers and performers. Held in Clark’s auditorium, the assemblies impregnate in the stu¬ dent’s mind cultural and entertainment aspects. These assemblies often coincide with studies and prove to be an extension of classroom activi¬ ties. The expenditure for assemblies requires approxi¬ mately $200.00 a year. The Student Council wages a magazine drive to acquire sufficient funds for sup¬ port of the assembly program. Mr. Arthur Erickson procures the performers and adjusts the assemblies according to school sched¬ ules. The Board of Education furnishes speakers and performers, while employees of regional indus¬ tries appear to relate information pertinent to their particular fields. Through the Student Assembly Service in Chicago, Mr. Erickson obtains other per¬ formers. To liven school spirit, pep assemblies are sponsored by the varsity cheerleaders. “Ole!” Professional Spanish folk dancers Lola Rey and Gloria Lopez performed traditional folk dances in colorful costumes at the Pan-American Day assembly. pation Emphasized in Assembly Programs After the intramural volleyball tournament the home room the faculty. The assembly was held in the gym during the 7th against home room, the championship team competed against period for the entire student body. Sandy and Caroline Paton, American folk singers, came to present an assembly program during their tour. Mrs. Paton is the former Caroline Swenson, 1950 Clark alumna. In a flash of flying color, Bob and Carlyn Galati, world re¬ known folk dancers, exhibited their talents as they interpreted the dances of a variety of foreign countries. 19 Pep Rally, Bonfire, To officially begin the exciting and unforgettable Homecom¬ ing weekend, a pep rally and bonfire were staged at Clark field the night before the big game. A familiar scene during the weeks preceding Homecoming, Suzanne Falda, Joyce Adams, and John Kohan work during study periods and after school to finish their signs. Capturing first place in the pre-game parade was the Modern Dance groups’ float executing the theme, “Blast ’Em Into Orbit.” Pictured on the float are Carol Kubeck, Beth Dudzik, Paulette Sullivan, Marcia Madura, and Luelle Obuch. Parade, Dance Spark Gala Homecoming by Karen Johnson Industrious Clarkites, under the direction of the Varsity cheerleaders, Mr. Raymond Buell, Miss Leota Kenzie, Miss Dolores McCampbell, and Miss Helen Wulkow, displayed their school spirit during the 1958 Homecoming weekend. To launch festivi¬ ties, students and teachers wore brightly painted tags on Tag Day, October 28, and sported school colors on the following day, Blue and White Day. Opening the victorious weekend was a pep rally and bonfire at Clark field on Thursday, October 29. Coach Emerson Aldrich and alumni Jim Kelso and Arnold Novotny spoke to the assembled group. A skit was then presented, and amid flashing cameras Judy Oli ver was crowned Homecoming Queen. Leading the pre-game parade on Friday was Clark’s band and majorettes followed by 35 gaily decorated floats and cars. Later, spirit reigned as the Pioneers defeated their crosstown rivals, the Whiting Oilers, by a score of 6 to 0. To conclude the weekend, the Varsity cheerleaders sponsored a Homecoming Dance Saturday night. “The finale to a memorable weekend!” On Saturday night the Varsity cheerleaders sponsored a sock hop in the gym for students and alumni. Her Majesty! Judy Oliver was crowned 1958 Home¬ coming queen at the Thursday night pep rally. She was presented with a glittering crown and a bouquet of red roses. Freshman Carol Francisco, sophomore Donna Macko, and junior Mary Rose Sweezey were elected from three can¬ didates selected by their class as attendants to the queen. 21 Fashion Minded Teens Sport Newest Styles by Lenore Kocot “The roaring 20’s” Typifying this year’s school ensemble, Martha Kammer and Mary Beth Silvian sport bulky knit sweaters, short skirts, tights, and matching headbands. “Our best foot forward!” The latest shoe styles come in a variety of colors and fabrics—Mike Kobe, desert boots; Gretchen Duerr and Jackie Roznawski, T-Straps; Nada Vast numbers of diverse styles are depicted by fashion conscious students at Clark. Crew neck and bulky knit sweaters worn down to the waist, knee- length skirts, ropes of beads, and head bands are the main theme for a rebirth of the “roaring 20’s” in the girls’ fashion world. Similarly, the men sport black derbies, bulky knits, crew necks, and button- down vests. Tights are a unique addition to clothing this year. These socks, available in nearly every color, plus tinted nylons, contribute to the co-ordination of skirt, sweater, and hosiery. Blouses worn out of the skirts are found with scalloped edges and in gaily printed fabrics to highlight any wardrobe. Pointed toes in dress and school shoes are dis¬ played by Clarkites. For the female gender, shoes come in many shades of suede or leather to match the outfit worn. Italian styled or slipper-like shoes are preferred by many of the males. Blazers worn over skirt-sweater ensembles are seen in red, grey, blue, white, black, or even checks and plaids. For out-door wear, car coats, boy coats, man-made furs, and jackets with attached hoods constitute favorites among students. New fads and fashions, crazes and rages are con¬ tinually sought for and followed by Clark students as they spiritedly enter their academic world. Ranchich and Barb Ramsey, fruit boots; Bernie Jackura, Jayne Koelling, and Sharon Guy, bubbles; Barb Palikan, soiled white tennis shoes; and Bob Slivka, square-toe loafers. Lynn Weiss, Dolores Gyurcsan, and Nancy Crouch show off the latest craze in blouses: the scalloped edge over-blouse, bright flower print, and the monogram blouse. “First in Fashion!” Jan Coppi, Karen Johnson, Dick Freck- elton, Joyce Adams, and Monette Brown model the last word in sport and casual clothes at Clark : bulky knit crew neck sweaters, blazers in a variety of colors, pleated skirts, ivy league sport shirts, beige car coats, plaid slacks, and ber- muda shorts with matching vests. Popular sweater styles are shown by Denise Singer in a hooded sweater, Ed Kawlec in a striped Perry Como sweater, and Jo Ann Lukacek in a turtle-neck, pocket sweater. “Net those Bulldogs!” Pat Foale, Jackie Thomas, Donna Mitchell, and Sue Nelson work on the G.S.S.C. sign that captured third place on Poster Day. Sportsmanship Mary Ellen Wasieleski distributes pennants and pins to Booster club home room representatives Joy Jackson and Mary Veenheizen on Pennant Day. “The Long Wait!” The annual wait for Sectional tickets began on Monday morning and continued throughout the week before school, at lunch time, and after school. At the evening rally, Hecate, the witch that causes students to lose their school spirit, sprinkles royal boosters with magic confetti and destroys their enthusiasm. 24 Trophy Climaxes Pep Week Activities by Arlene Matis The loyalty and good attitude of the fighting Pioneers was rewarded by the presentation of the 1959 Sectional Good Sportsmanship Award. This award, presented annually by the Hammond and East Chicago Manufactures’ Association, is based on the conduct of the school ' s coaches, players, and cheering section. Pioneer boosters also demonstrated their loyalty by participating in the activities of Pep Week, February 23 through 26. On Monday the activities began with the distribution of Clark pennants and pins. Tuesday, designated as Poster Day, found the corridors decorated with signs and posters con¬ tributed by school organizations. Loyal boosters sported the school colors on Wednesday, Blue and White Day, and later attended the night pep rally. At this rally, Hecate, the witch who had caused Clark to lose its school spirit, was destroyed by Professor McDuff, thus restoring Clark’s enthus¬ iasm and pep. Activities of the week terminated with a pep assembly Thursday morning and the Clark-Crown Point game, opening the Sectional Tournament. Reenacting a typical scene of tournament time, Sharon Pop- pen helps Sharon Fisher by pinning on the traditional white mum corsage with a blue “C” in the center. “Go You Pioneers, Fight!” Mr. Emerson Aldrich enthus¬ iastically leads the student body in the cheer named in his honor at the pep assembly Thursday morning. “A Little Bit of Blue!” Carole Palikan, Clark mascot, led cheers throughout the basketball season and made a special appearance at the season’s finale, the Sectional Tournament. 25 Various Steps Highlight Variety of Dances by Donna Enright “Rock ' N Roll South American Style!” The first bermuda dance was presented by the Class o f I960. “2000, 2001, 2002!” Susan Clore shows her skill with a hoop and has a good time as she competes for the prizes offered to the hula hoop champions at the A.V.O.’s Hula Hop. The Cha Cha Cha, the Stroll, the Mexican Hat Rock, and the Rock-a-Conga are some of the types of dances that sparked sock hops and shoe dances during the school year. Various forms of slow dances, especially the Hesitation, are always the most popular at the proms and out-of-school semi- formals, the Sub-deb and the Sweetheart Ball. Choice of attire is decided by the type of dance. School clothes and bobbi socks are worn at the hops which are sponsored during the basketball sea¬ son. Best dresses and heels or flats for the girls are in order for the semi-formal class dances, while suits are required of the boys. At the Junior Prom, the biggest dance of the year, the most formal at¬ tire is displayed. Following these school activities students flock to pizza places or local restaurants. Each of the sock hops and shoe dances is spon¬ sored by school clubs or other organizations. Semi- formal dances are usually the projects of the four individual classes. “The Big Night!” Enjoying the fruits of their labor, mem¬ bers of the Class of 1959 take time out for a coke and rest their tired feet before returning to the dance floor. “Moments to Remember!” As the evening drew to a close, the orchestra played its final number and the Junior prom, Mystic Moments was only a wonderful memory. “Her arm fell off!” Denise Singer tries to adjust a loose arm as she and Gretchen Duerr hoist a manikan onto a platform and commence pre-prom activities. Excitement and anticipation reached its high point as Jackie Roznawski, Vickie Lacko, Gretchen Duerr, and Jack Williams finished up after a hectic week of decorating. Sarttiwp and fc i “Number One Citizen!” Linda Gilman addresses the 950 delegates and their parents after being elected Governor of Girls’ State, the highest honor any Hoosier girl can achieve. Beside this great honor, Linda also received the D.A .R. Award for out¬ standing citizenship and the State Youth Leadership Award offered by the Elks. Dave Tharp received the Bausch and Lomb Company honor¬ ary science medal for attaining the highest high school scholastic average in science subjects. 28 Penny Flesher was the recipient of the Betty Crocker Fu¬ ture Homemaker Award, and Barbara Kussy was appointed to the teen-age fashion board of McCall’s magazine. eviafy a tyoal .,, “Opening the door to a successful future!” Rich Balko, salutatorian, and Linda Gilman, valedictorian of the Class of 1959, beam with pride after receiving their diplomas and completing four memorable years with highest honors.

Creating an enthusiasm for scholarship, stimu¬ lating a desire to render service, promoting worthy leadership, and encouraging the development of character are the objectives of the National Honor Society, sponsored by Miss Veva McAtee. Students are chosen for this organization on the basis of their contribution to these fields as judged by a specially appointed council of faculty and admin¬ istration. The society consists of five percent of the junior class and 15 percent of the graduating class. To encourage and reward achievements in journalism and school publications is the purpose of the Quill and Scroll Society. Clark, along with 7000 other high schools, is granted a charter in this organization. Sponsored by Mr. George Muir, this journalism society judges applicants for mem¬ bership by their individual qualities and contribu¬ tions to phases of journalism in conjunction with the publication of the Pioneer News and POWDER HORN. 34 National Thespian Society—Row One: S.

McCutch- Dedicated to the advancement of dramatic arts in high school, the National Thespian Society is de¬ signed to give drama enthusiasts a chance to utilize and practice their skills. Students earning a mini¬ mum of 10 points through participation in plays, assistance in directing productions, or supervision of backstage work are eligible for membership in Clark’s newly-organized group. A full-length play is produced annually by nationally recognized Troupe 1769, sponsored by Miss Rhoda Kittelsen. “The youth of today will be the leaders of to¬ morrow” explains the purpose of the National Forensic League — to train students to become leaders and influential citizens by encouraging them to become effective speakers. Debators discuss the American system of education opposed to the Brit¬ ish system, while speech students recite in dis¬ trict and state competition.

This year the mer¬ ger of the Freshman-Sophomore and Junior-Senior clubs enabled 36 members to combine their efforts for service in local and world-wide projects. Speakers such as Mr. Harry Cho, a native of Ko¬ rea, touch on various phases of service needed in the world. Members then discuss ideas presented and vote on which project will be undertaken by the club. Many needy families receive food for their Christ¬ mas dinners because of the food baskets that are provided each year by the Hi-Y members. As a part of their world service project, they send clothing and food over-seas. In order to raise funds for these and other projects, members sell schedule pencils during the football and basketball season.

This is heard from crowds as the band marches on the field in perfect formation during the halves of football games. Besides the football shows, the band also participates in parades, contests, basketball games, concerts, pep rallies, high school assemblies, and the annual Hammond Music Festival. City, district, and state contests begin in February, but practice sessions are started earlier in the year. At the completion of marching season, the band also launches preparations for the concerts given in January and May. At the latter concert, the traditional keys are presented to the senior members. The money raising project for this musical organi¬ zation was the sale of fudge and pecan logs. The profits of this sale amounted to $650, which will be contributed toward the purchase of risers for the band room. Again this year the band was divided into two groups: the honor band consisting of the more ex¬ perienced players, and the B-band consisting of the less experienced players. The entire band boasts a membership of 72 and is headed by President Ed Swenson, Vice-president Joan Liehe, and Co-secretaries Sharon Poppen and Dick Bunn. Mr. Carlyle Snider is the director. Consisting mostly of senior members, the pep band performs at home basketball games and pep rallies. The purpose of this miniature band is to help boost school spirit and the morale of the team by providing instrumental accompaniment to school songs. Snappy songs and marches are played by members before the game and during timeouts and halftimes. A job well done by band members is rewarded by letters and chevrons which are given on the basis of a point system. 54 night, S. Trombley, B. Adams, B. Sabol, J. Robey, P. Hmuro- vich, A.

This year’s activities include participating in their annual spring concert, which is prepared for the school audience, the Northern Indiana District Con¬ test and the city-wide instrumental contest, held May 2, playing for high school commencement and baccalaureate, taking part in the Hammoi.d Music Festival, and sponsoring a Thanksgiving sock hop, “Cranberry Capers.” Once again the advanced string group, composed of eight to ten members, was privileged to play in the Manchester Symphony Concert. This year the guest conductor is Arthur Fidler of the Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra. The group chose Arlene Matis to preside this year. Assisting Arlene was Betty Small, vice president. Elaine Pawlus was chosen secretary-treasurer, and Illse Economou, publicity chairman. L. Gilman, S. Guy, S. McLean, S. Poppen, M. Turbovich, L. Carter, J. Robey, P. Hmurovich, A. Susoreny, E.

Modern Dance, sponsored by Miss Leota Kenzie, provides the opportunity for girls to create dances expressing through body movements the moods found in music. Through club activities participants gain poise and self-confidence. The first project of this 45 member league was the organization and participation in “Around the World in an Eighty Dollar Wardrobe.’’ This show, whose proceeds were donated to the March of Dimes, was held January 10 at Hammond High School. The construction of the first-place float in the homecom¬ ing parade was a brief pause before the group began rehearsing with the vocal music departments for the Winter and Spring Concerts. Modern Dance applicants are taught certain dance techniques later to be used for individual dances per¬ formed before the entire group. Each girl is also required to attend a certain number of practice ses¬ sions before being approved for membership. Using artificial snow and colorful costumes, M. Madura, P. Sullivan, L. Obuch, B. Wagner, P. Mordus, P. Foale, and K. Winsberg give the impression of a real “Sleigh Ride.” 57 FOOTLIGHT MAGIC . . . Drama Club—Row One: S. Clore, R. Hartman, C. Keister, P. Krygier, C. Francisco, P.

Masquers Nucleus for Skits and Plays by Gretclien Duerr “The show must go on!” Poor Dawn Hickman is in a fix, but not even Rose Hartman can help her. The villains, Jerry Robey and Jerry Wozniak, continue tightening the rope. To develop interest and experience in the fields of acting, interpretation, directing, and mechanics of the stage and to gain a new outlook towards literary works is the purpose of Clark’s drama club. Meeting on the fourth Wednesday of every month, the Mas¬ quers, as the club is called, work on skits and plays which are presented to the student body. These one- act plays, read before the entire group, help future dramatists gain valuable experience and confidence. Other activities include the reading of classics in the field of drama and a study of famous dramatists. This group comprised of 60 members is sponsored by Miss Rhoda Kittelsen and is in conjunction with National Thespian Troupe No. 1769. This honorary association, composed of 16 members, is devoted to the advancement of dramatic arts in the secondary schools. This year the Best Thespian Award, which is based on active participation, was presented to Diane Harper. 58 Crew Strives for Teelinieal Perfection by Gigi Jackson Stage Crew — Row One: P.

Work¬ ing invisibly behind the scenes, this organization requires for membership the desire to have perfect lighting, make-up, costumes, and sound effects for all dramatic productions, school assemblies, and musical concerts and programs. Consisting of 75 members, the stage crew meets during the first and third activity periods of each month. At these meetings the members are given specific assignments for future productions. Marcia McCutcheon and Jack Williams were selected to work as co-stage managers. Crew projects include behind-the-scenes action for the Spring and Winter concerts, Modern Dance productions, and the annual all-school and junior class plays. To obtain funds, the stage crew mem¬ bers set up colored spotlights to compliment the decorations at all school dances. Stage manager Jack Williams waits in the wings for his cue to dim the lights. Curtains must be pulled, lights turned on and off, and scenery removed at exactly the right second. 59 “Death Takes A Holiday”—Cast: Arlene Antilla, William Oliver, Jim Price, Linda Gilman, Ron Jankowski, Bill Meissner, Sharon Poppen, Jerry Robey, Diane Harper, George Kilkeary. Vischak, Shirley Ringgenberg, Dave Stevenson, Mary Lou Life Prevails as “Death Takes a Holiday” “Then there is a love which casts out fear, and I have found it. Love is greater than illusion, and as strong as death!” Prince Sirki (Death) realizes Grazia’s love. “Death Takes a Holiday,” written by Alberto Casella in Italy in 1925, was rewritten for the American stage by Walter Ferris. The three act comi-tragedy is based on the poetic conception of death suspending all activities to find why mortals fear him so. The cast is as follows: Cora.Arlene Antilla Fedele ..Bill Kilkeary Duke Lambert . Alda . .Dave Stevenson .Diane Harper Duchess Stephanie . .Mary Lou Oliver Princess of San Luca. .Linda Gilman Baron Cesarea . .Ron Jankowski Rhoda Fenton. .Sharon Poppen Eric Fenton . ...Jerry Robey Corrado . .Jim Price Grazia . .Shirley Ringgenberg His Serene Highness, Prince Sirki, of Vitalba Alexandri. .George Vischak Major Whitread. .William Meissner Director . .Miss Rhoda Kittelsen Student Director. .Joan Liehe Production Manager. .Sharon McLean 60 by Diane Harper A castle near the Italian Alps is the setting for this supernatural drama. The characters, who are of the aristocratic class, exist in a blase type of world, not knowing what they want from life. This un¬ certainty of destination is true of all characters, ex¬ cept Grazia, who is almost ethereal in her concept of life. As Duke Lambert, host to the party, relaxes in an unlighted room, a weird form appears before him. This uncanny visitor with green, gaunt, and lumi¬ nous face and hands reveals its ultramundane iden¬ tity—Death—to the Duke and explains, with a touch of sarcasm, that it is going to take a holiday, during which time there will be no dying on earth and everything old will have prolonged life. The reason for this is to find what it is that makes men fear death. Is it loss of power? money? or love? Death, himself, reappears in the form of a fas¬ cinating prince, and after discovering that it is neith¬ er power or money that binds men to life, makes love to three guests: Rhoda, a fresh and out-of-door type; Alda, a beautiful and restless sophisticate; and Grazia, who alone ends his quest in triumph of love over fear. Death returns in his real form to the in¬ evitable with Grazia, who, ardent and undaunted, follows him into the darkness. “Alda, don’t let yourself go! I tell you there’s something inhuman and cruel about that fellow.” Eric warns Alda about the mysterious stranger that appeared out of nowhere. “My dear Baron, are you, by any chance, proposing to me?” The Princess of San Luca jokes with elderly Baron Cesarea who feels younger every minute. Duke Lambert reveals the identity of Prince Sirki to Cor- rado and Eric, “He is the one who waits . . . His Majesty . . . Death . . . amusing himself on a holiday!” 61 Our Town Drama of Everyday Life by Diane Harper Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning play “Our Town” could most certainly be called unique. The presentation was something new to the high school audience, for it was not a comedy, or a tragedy, or a drama. The play was just a story about a young girl’s—any girl’s—life from childhood to deathbed. The entire play is performed in panto¬ mime as there are no props or scenery which might distract the attention of the audience. “Our Town,” as the Stage Manager, who narrates the story through the three acts (Childhood, Mar¬ riage, and Death) states is just an ordinary town in the early 1900’s; its name is Grover’s Corners. The story is primarily concerned with the eldest children, Emily and George, of the Webb and Gibbs families. As time goes by, they mature and discover, as the saying goes, “They were meant for one anoth¬ er.” They marry, work a farm, and raise a family. However, Emily soon dies in childbirth. Not being able to bear the loneliness of the dead, she is al¬ lowed to return to the living for one day. What Emily finds among the living is too much to endure and thankfully returns to her grave. “Our Town”—principal characters: Rudy Almasy, Maynard Kessler, Camille Kessler, Lynn Carter, Susan Kalina, Diane Stage Manager.Maynard Kessler Dr. Gibbs.Don Kaminsky Joe Crowell .Gary Kaplan Howie Newsome.Dale Boyer Mrs. Gibbs.Diane Harper Mrs. Webb.Camille Kessler George Gibbs....Rudy Almasy Rebecca Gibbs .Susan Kalina Wally Webb .Bob Weinberg Emily Webb .Linda Gilman Professor Willard .Mike Kobe Mr. Webb.Thomas Valko Woman In the Balcony.Carol Cudek Man In the Auditorium .Dave Tharp Lady In the Box.Arlene Walczak Simon Stimson .

Mr. Webb and Constable Warren bid a good evening to the inebriated Simon Stimson, who unfathomably staggers past them, and shake their heads in sympathy. mmm “Now, Myrtle, I’ve got to tell you something, because if I don’t tell somebody I’ll burst.” Mrs. Gibbs has startling news to tell Mrs. Webb as they sit stringing beans. As Emily once again takes her place among the dead, she asks, “Live people don’t understand much do they. Mother Gibbs?” and is answered by “No, dear. Not very much.” C-CLUB—Row One: Coach Banas, sponsor, J. Mehok, G. Hoffman, G. Kokenis, D. Kania, C. Sapyta, J. Mikula, T. Bo¬ land, Coach Stavros; Row Two: D. Talabay, J. Wonnacott, B. Hoover, D.

Under the guidance of co-sponsors Mr. Norman Banas and Mr. Steve Stavros, the lettermen have formed one of the most active organizations in school. The athletes sell popcorn at home football games and every day after school hours. Sponsoring Dads’ Night to honor the fathers of football players and printing foot¬ ball programs are other responsibilities of the club. The money raised from projects enables the club to purchase jackets for lettermen. Staging the annual banquet at which Bill Rohr, Northwestern basketball coach, spoke was one of the highlights of the season. The presentations of awards and announcements of the all-around athlete and outstanding leader marked this event. Also, ten¬ nis coach Mr. Edwin Martin presented the school with a picture of the Western Division Champion¬ ship tennis team to be hung in the main hall. Leading the club are Dick Kania, Chuck Sapyta, Gene Kokenis, and Dick Freckelton. 66 . Team—Row One: K. Miller, E. Best, R. Moore, T. Barlo, D. Kollwitz, J. Mikula, M. Kokot, J. Sima, D.

Three days later they walked off with blue ribbon honors at the Hammond City Meet. Led by Kobe, who ran fifth, the cross-country boys dumped Hammond High, Morton, and Tech. The Freshman-Sophomore squad duplicated the victory, making Clark the best in city competition. Smothering Washington 19-40, and Tolleston 15- 50, the harriers retained second place in Conference standings. In two ensuing meets they won over Lew Wallace, Emerson, and Whiting while being dropped by Horace Mann and Froebel. In Sectional competition Clark finished eleventh out of the 20 teams entered. Season’s end found them copping third place in the Western Division Conference standings. The harriers also extended their string to eight consecutive years without a defeat in dual meets. Clark’s City Champs won 11 meets while losing only three. G. Troksa, J. Germich, R. Dembowski, R. Szot, J. Dobrowski, R. Dostatni; Row Five: J. Cox, D. Chyla, T. Veslocki, J. Papach, D. Shimala, G.

Mike Barton crowds the net for the return volley as Mark Popovich slams the ball over the net and makes an ace for another grand slam victory. 69 Gridmen Down llival Tech and Whiting by Maynard Kessler Despite the fine all-around play of Dick Freckel- ton and the spirited running of Gary Hoffman, Clark could not touch Morton’s Governors in their season opener. The Pioneers staged a 50 yard drive in the second half, but an untimely fumble on Morton’s one yard line erased any plans for a Clark tally. The result was an 18-0 drubbing, the only shutout scored against the Pioneers all season. On their next outing the Clarkites were roughed by East Chicago’s Riders of Roosevelt, 27-7. In first quarter play the Aldrich men penetrated to Roose¬ velt’s one foot line, but their scoring attempt was halted when they ran out of downs. Roosevelt scored two “quickies” in the second quarter. Clark answer¬ ed back in the fourth on a three yard plunge by Gary Hoffman. East Chicago Washington was held to a 7-6 half¬ time score before the Senators dropped the Pioneers 21-6. Clark ' s lone tally was set up when Dick Freckelton received a fumble on Washington’s ten yard line. A pass from Dave Ogren to John Mehok placed the pigskin on the four yard line. Two plays later Gary Hoffman hit paydirt in the losing tilt. Dave Ogren plunges through Rensselaer defense and begins the fifty yard march that ended in a touchdown which registered a Clark victory. Clark’s initial victory was registered at Rensse¬ laer. In the second period Dave Ogren started a 50 yard march which he completed with a 10 yard touchdown burst. The Bombers knotted the score in fourth quarter action at 7-7. However, with three minutes left the Pioneers marched from their own 35 for the winning T. D. in 10 plays. Crozier, Clark’s extra point man, made it a 13-7 win. Gary Lew Wallace and Hammond High scored once each quarter, defeating the Pioneers 27-13 and 26-7, respectively. Dave Ogren completed a 10 yard end zone pass to Charlie Sapyta and Gary Hoffman drove over for a six yard T. D., but this was not enough to swat the Hornets. Against Ham¬ mond High, Dave Ogren scored on a 26 yard jaunt for the lone score. Tech and Whiting succumbed to the Pioneers by identical 6-0 shutouts. Gary Hoffman provided the scores for both wins. Against Whiting, Hoffman re¬ turned a fourth quarter punt 27 yards to the Oiler’s eighteen yard marker. Two plays later he scampered eight yards for the decisive tally. In the final stanza, Clark defense stopped two Oiler drives. Thus, Whiting was Clark’s Homecoming guest and victim in the season finale. In Conference play, Clark posted a 2-4 record, placing them seventh in the twelve team Western Division race. Pioneers overall record was 3-5. At season’s end Charlie Sapyta captured a posi¬ tion as end on the All State team for his consistent¬ ly fine play. He also made the first team along with teammate Gary Hoffman on the Hammond Times All Star squad. Jerry Gajdos received honorable mention on the same team. 1958 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE Clark . . 0 Morton .. ... 18 WD Clark. . 7 E. C. Roosevelt. 27 WD Clark. ... 6 E. C.

Hammond High nudged the Jay- vees, 19-6. Jim Benak returned a Hammond High fumble 26 yards for the lone Pioneer score. The Peterson- men then trampled Tech, 26-12. Jerry Crozier, Manuel Gonzales, and Jim Benak paced the scoring with a touchdown each. In the season finale, the Settlers bowed to Whiting, 14-0, and posted a five game season record of two wins and three losses. Clark’s Homesteaders defeated Tech, 19-0, in their season’s opener. Jim Moffitt scored on a 35 yard pass while Kelly Clore added a tally on a three yard run, and Dave Sch- lack returned a 50 yard pass inter¬ ception. Irving was their next victim by a 19-7 tally. The scoring started when Ron Kalina plunged over in the sec¬ ond quarter; he was followed by Dave Schlack, who scored on a sev¬ en yard pass from Kelly Clore. Coach William’s boys suffered their first loss to Hammond High 25-6. Clark’s lone score came when Kelly Clore passed to Carnahan in the sec¬ ond quarter.

Hobart journeyed to Hammond and returned home victorious. With a minute and a half to play, Floyd Prusinski came off the bench to put the Pioneers ahead on six clutch free throws and two baskets. This did not stop the Brickies from recording a 64-61 victory. Suffering from a frigid first half against South Bend Washington, Clark bounced back with the aid of Terranova’s 23 points, but the Panthers scored a 87-70 victory. Wildcat balance and backboard play wrote a 65-48 victory, even though Clark led at the half with a score of 33-25. After losing to Roosevelt 70-65, the Pioneers registered their first win against Carl Sandburg, 62- 49 and proceeded into the Whiting Holiday Tourna- ment.Portage eliminated Clark 66-64 in a hotly con¬ tested battle, but Chesterton bowed to the Shields- men and left them with third place honors. Stopped by Penn Township, Gary Tolleston, and Lew Wallace the Pioneers downed cross-town rival Whiting 59-44. A four game winning streak follow¬ ed after two losses to powerful Washington and Valparaiso. Clark held Washington, ranked second in the state, to a 36-33 half-time margin, before the Senators won on a 26 point bulge, 88-62. Joe Terranova aided the victories over Tech and Horace Mann with his 50 point showing. He bag¬ ged 20 to defeat Tech 75-51 and 30 to tie a school scoring record. Morton was the next victim by a 78-69 score. Terranova bagged another 20 points. The following evening Clark hosted Dubuque, Iowa, and handed them a 79-70 pounding; Rich Balko netted 20 to extend Clark’s streak to four wins. Gary quintets, Emerson and Froebel set the Pio¬ neers back in the season’s final tilts. In Sectional play Clark was eliminated in first round action by Crown Point 66-46. The Pioneers were 3-8 in loop play, hanging up an 8-13 overall record. Varsity Basketball Team—B. Burk, manager, T. Shields, J. Paskwietz, R. Balko, J. Coppi, S. Frenchik, J. Benak, F. Prusinski, J.

Valparai¬ so, trailing 24-13, scored three pins which proved to be the margin of victory. Roosevelt sent the Pioneers off to Crown Point with a 44-6 defeat, where they tangled with the Bulldogs to receive a 41-11 loss. Against Morton, Clark lost a heartbreak- er, a replica of the Valparaiso victory. Bill Hoover captured blue ribbon honors as Clark placed seventh in the 11 team Conference meet. In Sectional action Clark possessed fifth place with 43 points. Bill Hoover grappled for the 120 pound crown while Gary Hoffman and Jerry Wozniak earned seconds, securing regional berths. “Get ready, get set .. . ” Carl Wheeling concentrates intently and plots the strategy he will use in winning the match in the fastest time possible. Turfmen End Sixth in Conference by Rich Balko In their first of six Western Division matches Clark’s turfmen upended Roosevelt lOV - ' D ii while only mustering 1 point to Hammond High’s 14. Af¬ ter losing to Thornton Fractional, they returned to conference play only to receive the same 14-1 pound¬ ing from Hammond High and Lew Wallace. In their second round match with Roosevelt the turf crew bested them 8 V 2 - 6 V 2 . while being dropped by Washington 9V -5V - Gathering six points in three non-league losing tilts with Calumet Township, Hobart, and Crown Point, Clark’s golfers returned to their 3 re¬ maining Western Division matches. Garnering 12 points, the turfmen lost twice to Tech and Valpa¬ raiso, and were also victims of Lew Wallace and Washington. Totaling 40 points, Clark finished sixth in the seven team Western Division Conference. At LaPorte in an invitational meet on May 9, and the sectional on May 16, Clark’s four man team of Balko, Wojtena, Kosalko, and Radamacher posted an identical 395 team total. “Well never do it!” Rich Balko and Paul Wojtena line up a practice putt and hope that the next match will reap that all important low score. Golf Team—Row One: J. Oliver, J. Warner, B. Burk, D. Kania, P. Wojtena; Row Two: Coach A1 Peterson, C. Kosal- ko, R. Balko, B.

Their next practice outing found them dumping Lowell, 7-1. Beginning their Western Division schedule, the Pioneers were clouted by Whiting, 9-0. Bouncing back, they played errorless ball to down Hammond High, 8-5. Then, after losing to Gary Emerson, Roosevelt edged the Pioneers, 3-2. After this shaky start, they proceeded to win 9 straight conference games to post a 10-4-1 Western Division record. Their final loss came at the hands of Gary Froebel, 9-8, a make-up game, in their sea¬ son finale. The Pioneer hardballers finished third in the Conference, one game behind Gary Emerson. Tom Shields led the regulars in hitting with .333, collecting 11 hits. Pat Malone gathered the most hits and runs, 15 and 14, respectively.

Attracts Sports-Minded Carls by Jackie Roznawski Under the direction of Miss Leota Kenzie and Mrs. Mary Jane Downing the Girls Athletic Club has grown to be one of the largest organizations at Clark. Freshman members meet after school, while the sophomore and junior-senior groups meet on alternate Wednesdays. Keeping trim and healthy is the aim of all sports- minded members, as they follow a rigorous schedule of baseball and swimming during the fall, and bowl¬ ing, volleyball, and basketball during the winter. Eligibility for membership is based on active par¬ ticipation in at least two sports during the year. New members are informally initiated by a commit¬ tee of seniors and take the pledge of membership, receiving their pins the following day at the mother- daughter banquet held at the St. John Panel Room. Another highlight of the year is the annual picnic staged at Marquette Park during the fall. Upper- class members act as big-sisters to in-coming mem¬ bers on this fun-filled, all-day outing. Club projects are financed by the profits received from the sale of refreshments at all home football games. G.A.C. Officers—Row One: Lenore Kocot, head of sports; J. Liehe, president; Arlene Antilla, vice-president; Row Two: Carol Maus, treasurer; Beth Adams, secretary. “Allah, Allah!” Freshman initiates in G.A.C. receive the tra¬ ditional informal initiation held after school in the gym. After this initiation, the girls are formally accepted. Jackie Roznawski rolls the ball down the alley and hopes for a strike at G.A.C. after-school bowling held Monday through Thursday at the Park View Bowling Lanes. 82 Bovs Exercise. Girls Develop Poise by Ann Marie Chrustowski At George Rogers Clark, both boys and girls are required to participate in a physical education program for four semesters. This requirement is usually completed in the freshman and sopho¬ more years. The girls’ gym classes, under the direc¬ tion of Miss Leota Kenzie and Mrs. Mary Jane Downing, meet on Mondays, Wed¬ nesdays, and Fridays of each week. The girls learn the fundamentals of softball, basketball, and volleyball. Square danc¬ ing and tumbling offer a diversion for the regular routine of athletic games. Cal¬ isthenics help the physical education stu¬ dents develop poise and grace. Activities in the boys’ gym classes include exercises, football, basketball and softball. Mr. Joe Franklin conducts the boys’ physical education classes and pro¬ vides the students with sound background material in gymnastics. Male students have the opportunity to substitute ath¬ letics in place of the physical education requirement. “S-t-r-e-t-c-h!” Elaine Uhrin, Caron Schwei- kert, Barb Sichak, and Gayle Antilla warm up before beginning rigorous games. A squad of boys in third period gym class run as hard as they can but don’t seem to be getting anywhere. John Condes, Frank Gajewski, and Jerry Berchik test their physical fitness by counting the num¬ ber of push-ups they can do. (?Can ite4 Our Junior Prom Was Lost in the Past In the early months of 1956, Miss Leah Booth and Miss Margaret Ide organized the Class of 1959. Many of us were new to Clark; others were only stepping into a different phase of school life. Ad¬ justing to our strange environment took time, but we made friends quickly and easily and soon fit smoothly into the complicated pattern. Our first duty as Clarkites was the election of class officers. Joe Terranova was chosen as president with Rich Balko assisting him as vice-president. Recording the minutes was Alpha Hendon, and counting our mea¬ ger funds was Carol Chovanec. The high point of our green year came on May 5, 1956 with the presentation of our first class dance, Karnival Kapers. Using a circus theme, the gym was draped in brightly colored crepe paper and cen¬ tered around a spinning carousel. Becoming more acquainted with high school life we blossomed into sophomores. This year Mike Kobe led the class as president, and Rich Balko again took over the vice-president’s duties. Elaine Pawlus re¬ corded the activities of our class, and Barb Kussy managed the finances. In the early months of our second year, we voted on class ring styles. The fifty-niners established the tradition of receiving class rings during the sopho¬ more year. Using a cave man theme, our unique sophomore class dance Neanderthal Ball was presented on May 11, 1957. The appearance of a life-size cave man, hanging moss, spider webs, and torches gave the effect of life in the paleolithic era. As juniors, we placed the leadership of our class in the hands of Matt Wozniak. Mike Kobe provided his assistance as vice-president, and Elaine Pawlus again managed the secretary’s affairs. Vickie Lacko handled the monetary matters of the class. “Our Hearts Were Young and Gay”, the junior class play, introduced the fifty-niners to the world Senior Class Officers—Maynard Kessler, president; Jean Makis, vice-president; JoAnn Lukasek, secretary; and Mark Popovich, treasurer. Between dances a group of students file into the little gym for a short break. Barb Dinga serves punch and cookies to hungry students and guests. Diane Harper and Mike Kobe confer with the representative from Ball State Teachers’ College at the annual College Day program for juniors and seniors. September Came—We re Seniors At Cast of grease paint, footlights, curtain calls, and boosted the class’ financial status. Interest in school affairs deepened as juniors readied themselves for Student Council elections and fulfilled responsible positions. April In Paris, our first dress-up dance, was presented on April 11, 1958. The dance reflected a scene of Parisian life with park benches and flower- filled carts. Highlighting the junior year was our Prom, “Mys¬ tic Moments”. Using a purple and pink color scheme, the first Prom decorating committee was established and was found working tirelessly until the Big Night arrived. During the summer preceding our senior year, Maynard Kessler, Ed Swenson, and Matt Wozniak represented Clark at Hoosier Boys’ State. Linda Gilman attended and was elected Governor of Hoos¬ ier Girls’ State. As a result, she was awarded a trip to Washington, D. C. to attend Girls’ Nation. The climax to our high school days arrived; we were seniors at last. Although we could hardly wait for graduation day, it now seems that eventful day came a little too soon. We will always remember the 1958 Homecoming and our Queen, Judy Oliver. On December 19, 1958, we set the pace for Christ¬ mas celebration by presenting our last class dance, Fascination. Glistening stars and a decorated Christmas tree gave the illusion of a world of fasci¬ nation. Refreshments and an orchestra helped make it a memorable evening. Ordering name cards, announcements, and cap and gowns we really got into the swing of gradua¬ tion activities. Committees were organized to plan for Class Day, and the Banquet. We all looked for¬ ward to our Senior Class Banquet at Teibels’ res¬ taurant on June 4, 1959. As the days flew by, we prepared ourselves for Class Day, Baccalaureate, and finally Graduation on June 10,1959. POWDER HORN Senior Headline Committee—Standing: Linda Gilman, Dennis Falaschetti, Mickey Smriga, Annette Palenik; Seated: Linda Render and Joyce Adams. Organizing receipts and counting the funds received from graduation announcement orders, Pamela Foale and Henry Ashcraft take and record all announcement orders. " This one fits!” After being carefully measured for a gradu¬ ation gown, Rita Golden tries on cap after cap until her exact size is found. 87 Again We Returned to Clark in the Fall JOYCE ADAMS Girls’ Club of Christian Service 1-2-3-4; Y-Teens 3; Vocal Music Organizations 1; Spring Concerts 1; Winter Concerts 1; POWDER HORN 3; Booster Club 1-2-3-4 CAROLE BETH ALLOWAY Whiting High School 1; Y-Teens 2-3; Girls’ Club of Christian Serv¬ ice 2-4; Booster Club 2-3-4 HENRY WILLIAM ASHCRAFT Biology Club 2; Conservation Club 1; Art Club JEANNINE MARIE BADOWSKI Girls’ Athletic Club 2-3-4; Girls’ Club of Christian Service 1-2; Vocal Music Organizations 1-2-3-4; Spring Concerts 1-2-3-4; Winter Con¬ certs 1-2-3-4; Modern Dance 3-4; Booster Club 2-3 JOHN RICHARD BALKO Class Officer 1-2; Student Council 4; Hi-Y 1-2-3; Audio Visual Aids 1-2-3-4; POWDER HORN 4; Pioneer News 3-4; Conservation Club 1; Golf 1-2-3-4; Basketball 1-2-3-4; Cross Country 1-2-3-4; C-Club 3-4- National Honor Society 4 EMILY BARBARA BARLO Girls’ Club of Christian Service 3-4; Vocal Music Organizations 1-2- 3-4; Spring Concerts 1-2-3-4; Winter Concerts 1-2-3-4; Pioneer News 3; Booster Club 1-2; Junior Red Cross 2; Secretaries’ Club 4; Stage Crew 2-3; National Honor Society 4 JOSEPH JOHN BARLO Vocal Music Organizations 1-2-3-4; Spring Concerts 1-2-3-4; Winter Concerts 1-2-3-4; Harmoneers 3-4 MICHAEL BARTON Student Council 3-4; Student Review Board 4; Art Club 1: Tennis 2-3-4; Wrestling 4; C-Club 3-4 RONALD ALAN BEITLER Orchestra 1; Health Career Club 2; Future Teachers of America 3- Latin Club 2; Stage Crew 2 JOANNE MARIE BERNICKY Girls’ Club of Christian Service 2-3; Booster Club 3; Junior Red Cross 2; Secretaries’ Club 4; Future Nurses Club 4 Beginning the Year tw Always Hera 11 CAROLE SUSAN BIEL Girls’ Athletic Club 1-2-3-4; Girls’ Club of Christian Service 2-3-4; Y-Teens 2-3; Vocal Music Organizations 1-2-3; Spring Concerts 1-2-3; Winter Concerts 2-3; POWDER HORN 4; Pioneer News 2-3-4; Booster Club 1-2-3-4; Latin Club 1; Stage Crew 4 MARY ANN BIEL Vocal Music Organizations 1-2-3-4; Spring Concerts 1-2-3-4; Winter Concerts 1-2-3-4; Pioneer News 4; Booster Club 1-2-3-4; Secretaries’ Club 4; Stage Crew 2 GEORGE ROBERT BLASKEY East Chicago Roosevelt 1; Audio Visual Aids 2; Track 2 CONSTANCE MARIE BOGUSLAW Girls’ Club of Christian Service 1-3; Girls’ Athletic Club 2-3-4; Span¬ ish Club 1; Stage Crew 2 ROBERT FRANCIS BONCHIK Conservation Club 1 JUDITH ANN BOTOS Girls’ Athletic Club 1-2-3-4; Girls’ Club of Christian Service 4; Booster Club 4; Library Club 1; Stage Crew 2 RUBEN DALE BOYER St. Charles High School, St. Charles, Missouri 1-2; Bay County High School, Panama City, Florida 3; Audio Visual Aids 4; Band 4; “Our Town” DONNA MAE BRAGIEL Girls’ Athletic Club 1-2-3-4; Girls’ Club of Christian Service 4; Vocal Music Organizations 1-2; Junior Red Cross 1; Spanish Club 1; Booster Club 4 RICHARD ANDREW BRAZINA Conservation Club 1 CAROLE ANN BREZOVICH Girls’ Athletic Club 1-2-3-4; Girls’ Club of Christian Service 3; Vocal Music Organizations 2; Spring Concerts 2; Winter Concerts 2; POWDER HORN 4; Pioneer News 2-3; Booster Club 1-2-3-4; Library Club 1; Secretaries’ Club 4 89 Fool hall Came and Ended Too Soon KATHLEEN MARY BUJNA Bishop Noll High School 1-2; Girls’ Club of Christian Service 3-4; Vocal Music Organizations 3-4; Spring Concerts 3-4; Winter Concerts 3-4; Booster Club 3-4; Junior Red Cross 4; Secretaries’ Club 4; Stage Crew 3-4 RICHARD J.

Your life at Clark has led you to become successful members of a group by achieving recognition in the many fields of sports, drama, club work, music, and debate, as well as scholastic achievement. Many of you have proven your capabilities as leaders; others have, through a fine spirit of service and co-operation, made a success of your many class activities: the dances, play, prom and graduation preparations. Many of you will further your education in schools of higher learn¬ ing; others will take their place in society as industrial workers, officer workers, or homemakers. You are living in an age of many opportunities; great work can be accomplished if you will avail yourself of these oppor¬ tunities. It gives a twinge of sadness to say farewell, for it has been a great pleasure working with you and getting to know you these past four years. We shall miss you, but before we part we wish to every one of you the greatest happiness possible in every future endeavor.

B. Hayward, Principal of George Rogers Clark School, states that he has always believed that the object of America’s school system is to give every student the best start in life he can receive from an educational point of view. Principal at Clark for nine years, this administra¬ tor is completing work on his doctorate at the Uni¬ versity of Chicago. Mr. Hayward is now serving as President of the Lake County Principal’s Associa¬ tion. George Rogers Clark School is a 12 year edu¬ cation program involving 1646 pupils and 72 faculty members. Clark senior high school has an enrollment of 807 students and 41 instructors, a ratio of 20 to 1 . Most of the faculty members are engaged in edu¬ cational advancement at nearby colleges and uni¬ versity extensions. Of the teaching staff, 20 hold bachelor degrees and 21 have earned master de¬ grees. Teaching experiences, the use of audio and visual aids, and a remedial reading course have helped to enrich educational opportunities. Counseling students and advising them on recom¬ mended programs of study are Directors of Guid¬ ance, Miss Veva McAtee and Mr. Arnold Corder. Included in their wide range of activities are class counseling, employment advising, maintaining permanent records, conferring with parents and students, interpreting grades and test scores, ad¬ justing attendance problems, arranging home-school adjustments, and general guidance. Miss McAtee adds to her active schedule the sponsoring of National Honors Society and the an¬ nual College Day Program. Mr. Corder assists ad¬ ministration by serving as boys’ counselor.

Miss Lyle’s ability and fairness in her teaching of biology earned the great respect and admiration of the faculty and students. An annual award for the outstanding student in the biology classes and a memorial shelf of science books in the school library have been dedi¬ cated to the memory of this inspiring instructor. “While her active teach¬ ing career has run its course, the profound impact of her life and work on the lives and minds and characters of the thousands of students who have made up her classes cannot but continue to be felt for many years to come,” —Mr. O. B. Hayward, principal. 120 In Truth They Lead Stacks of pamphlets and books illustrate the wealth of material Mr. Arthur Erickson makes available for his Debate team. This year’s debaters are following last year’s Clark team who achieved state championship as the outstanding debate group in Indiana. Mr. Erickson also sponsors National Forensic League and Photography Club. A travel enthusiast, Mr. Erickson can add many personal ex¬ periences in illustrating to his classes of United States History, modern problems, sociology, psychology, and economics. Mr. Erickson has taught at Clark for 20 years and throughout that time has added a great deal to the standards, values, and dignity of the school and the students it has pro¬ duced. Mr. Erickson expresses loyalty to Clark and pride in its graduates. (o Help I Succeed Emerson Aldrich . . . Mathematics . . . B.S.,M.A. . . .Varsity Football and Baseball Norman Banas . . .

Mr. Wakeland holds degrees of Music Edu¬ cation, Bachelor of Arts, and Master of Arts. In¬ cluded in his many extracurricular activities is the supervision of five vocal ensembles and a music ap¬ preciation class, which he initiated at Clark. The Winter and Spring Concerts, produced by the vocal music director, highlight each school year. Annual trips to the regional vocal music contests show the merit of Clark’s singing groups as Mr. Wakeland can boast of first ratings in every judging. A special accomplishment of this year was the purchase of 52 new robes, worth approximately Merit Student llespect and Admiration Swarms of hungry Clarkites pour into the cafeteria during fourth and fifth periods everyday.
