The Pioneers learned how to get along with others and how to handle responsibilities. We developed our powers of reasoning and of thinking. We also excelled in all fields of education. Our academics were strengthened by a new course and new teachers. Our activities found increased in¬ terest from all Clarkites, and our sports were boosted by good teams and good spirits. It was indeed an easy task this year for Pioneers to find their place at Clark. ’TTtty tty Cace. . . IN SCHOOL LIFE 5 IN ACADEMICS 26 IN ORGANIZATIONS 48 IN SPORTS 78 IN YOUR CLASSES 98 Located at 1921 Davis Avenue, in Whiting, George Rogers Clark High School has an enrollment of 799 students, 409 girls and 390 boys. In the grade school and junior high there are 639 pupils. On the three floors of Clark school are a variety of courses taught by 21 women and 22 men instructors. School begins at 8:30 with a ten minute homeroom period in which announcements for the day are read. Homeroom period is followed by seven 55 minute periods. In order to accommodate the large number of the 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 provide extra time for an activity or club period held between tirst 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. Sherrie Gurevitz and Bernie Jo Jackura catch up on the latest school news before the lunch bell rings. The I 19th Street entrance is Clark’s freeway. Before and after school, and during lunch hours it is always packed with Pioneers going in and out of school. Bill Burk, Jack Warner, and Ron Burk find the auditorium steps a good meeting place before their morning classes. feifes r Ofeeuitiy. . . . ' H v Sxfc uznceA High school is a time for varied experiences which will help mold personalities and characters of future Americans. The experience of learning in high school is utmost in the teenagers’ mind. The diversified courses offered at Clark enable students to acquire a well-round education. In the classrooms numerous subjects are thoroughly discussed. Word derivations, current events, and music are just such subjects. Many times Clarkites find themselves sharing their ideas with others, and even debating them. Thinking is an experience which is encouraged by every teacher. In many ways this is a great part of the education at Clark — learning to think. Gaining and handling responsibilities is experienced in taking the opportunities to join the clubs and or¬ ganizations at G.R.C. Working on committees for dances and programs and taking part in planned ac¬ tivities are encountered by almost every student at Clark. Pioneers working as a team are witnessed not only in athletics, where it is the most prevalent, but also in such organizations as vocal music. Booster Club, and the newspaper. Clarkites working hand in hand with other Clarkites is noted everywhere: en¬ sembles practicing in the band-room preparing for contest time, young actors reviewing their lines for the all-school play, and Art Club members laboring on their Homecoming float entry. For each student the experiences he receives at Clark are different. However, they all help our teen¬ agers of today to grow up to face future problems and conflicts in the world. “PCu t6e f - 2 Stefed TRoccttae After the 8:10 bell, which opens the school, the long parade through Clark’s doors continues until school officially begins at 8:30. 1 ucUviduatitcf tyet l t This year Clark boys came into the fashion world with their own ideas. Paisley shirts be¬ came the rage as the boys sought bright colors and unique designs. Silk, satin, and woolen vests were the style while tapered trousers accentuated the lean look. Pin stripped cords with flash pockets and square and French toed shoes rounded out the guys’ wardrobe. The girls’ wardrobe was added to this year by the gradual adaption of the boys’ vest. Dirty greens and off colors were the trend in girls clothing. Woolen skirt and jacket co-or¬ dinates were the rage. A variety of shoe styles highlighted the year. From open toe and open heel the girls switched to the high boot, back to the conventional loafer, and final ' y ended up with the corduroy tennis shoe. Despite the hectic change of pace in the fashion world, teens were able to keep up and still come out on top. Shoe styles change every year for Clark. Left to right; French toe loafers, suede cobblers, Queen Ann heels, fruit boots, loafers, and square toe ties. The best in fashion for school or dress: John Cox, Sport coat and crew neck sweater; Alma Mazeika, tan pleated skirt and matching tan blazer; Dennie Barton, buttom-down shirt and sweater vest; Bernie Jo Jackura, Empire style plaid wool dress; Susan Clore, plaid pleated skirt and sweater. 10 Iteact la lac lacU zact l z kiaa Coats took a new lead in fashions. Donna Mitchell, boy-coat; Carolyn Nickel, corduroy car-coat with a racoon collar; Kathy Winsberg, shaggy, fur coat with wood buttons; Marcia McCutch- eon, trench coat. Everyone became interested in the sweater styles. Clen Ethridge, textured fur-blend cardigan sweater; Jack Gonsiorowski, pullover sweater with a shawl collar; Frances Condo, bulky-knit, shaggy sweater with a stand-up collar; Bert Mullins, V-neck sweater. Arlene Antilla, Sigrid Trombley, Phil Holden, Marcia McCutcheon, semblies throughout the year. This discussion was held during and Jerry Robey led one of the panel discussions held for as- the Community Chest Drive. IteeuM-teA ' l cvUect ' DeMyaa... (Ztaxkcted Whenever assemblies are announced in homeroom most students openly exclaim “Cot out of that test!” Teachers do not mind postponing that test though because they realize the necessity of assemblies in the educational development of students. Student panel discussions increase our knowledge of history and made us aware of community problems. The poise gained by participating students is of even more importence in contributing to the development of tomorrows leaders. Assemblies have done their part in furthering peace through the understanding of other countries. Upon hearing simple yet beautiful folk songs or watching intricate folk dances, we cannot help but appreciate cultures differing from our own. Terry Bachi and Jim Sandrick take a closer look at one of the winning car models on display at the Fisher Body Craftsmen’s Cuild assembly. The Glee Club from Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Indiana serenaded the Clarkites in an assembly sponsored by the Vocal Music Department. The club surpassed their last year’s per¬ formance with an unforgettable program of popular and sacred music. “Pie etit fo The colorful assembly for United Nations Day included a Mexican folk dance presented by Miss Bank’s fifth grade. Dick Umlauf eyes Bell Telephone’s electronic " tic-tac-toe” ma¬ chine which he is trying to out-smart. Dave “Lady” McClure passes in review for the Pep Rally specta¬ tors as part of the Senior Boys Skit. Many enthusiastic Clarkites. teachers and pupils, coaches and team, combined efforts for the success of the 1959 Homecoming weekend. Loyal students under the supervision of faculty members. Miss Helen Wulkow, Miss Rhoda Kittelsen, Miss Doris Myers, Mr. Bernard Charlet, and Mr. Raymond Buell, gave after school hours to plan and prepare for the event. The pep rally held at Clark Field on Thursday, October 15, officially opened the celebrations. Senior class president Dan Kozlowski and Coach Norman Banas spoke to a crowd of 800 persons. A series of three skits was presented by members of the Senior class. The moment of coronation had arrived. Cheers, tears, and popping flashbulbs added to the excite¬ ment as her majesty, Paula Knish, was crowned 1959 Homecoming Queen by C-Club president John Mehok. Clark’s band and majorettes led the pre-game pa¬ rade on Friday night, with the queen and her court and lavishly decorated floats and cars following. A dance at Madura’s Danceland Saturday night climaxed the exciting weekend. 14 Senim Dayd, tfame, and T Caduta “Dance Paula Knish was crowned ruling monarch for the 1959 Home¬ coming parade, football game, and dance. Sharon Taylor, Junior; Sue Clore, Sophomore; and Sue Eaton, Freshman; were chosen for the queen’s court. 15 " Pefe, Z{Jeek rfctcvctied- .cct faf. £,utku iaAtic Signs of Pep Week hung everywhere throughout Clark halls. Booster Club and cheerleaders devoted much of their time and effort to create them. Here Sharon Ziemkiewicz and Barbara Sichak hang one of these “masterpieces.” Varsity cheerleaders boostered spirits with new cheers and yells. They are: Monica Mihalo, Marcia Madura, Paulette Sullivan, Luelle Obuch, and )oanne Palko. 16 ‘SwMtenA cvCtfa Royalty cuui faicC rfttitudeA Our Pioneer spirit was displayed again this year with Pep Week, February 22 to the 25. There were signs being painted and meetings of all kinds in preparation for the big game ahead. Cheerleaders and Boosters were practicing new cheers to spur the team to victory. On Monday, students began painting signs and practicing for the skits to be given in Wednesday ' s pep assembly. Tuesday, traditional Blue and White Day, everyone was asked to show off the school colors. Full cooperation was given and the day was a big success. A rousing pep assembly Wednesday morning climaxed the week’s activities. Famous members of society giving their opinions on the coming evening’s game were interviewed. A farmer considered Clark a cinch to win, a ravishing society doll agreed whole heartedly, and a member of the opposing basketball team wasn’t sure just what he thought. The big mo¬ ment came that evening when Clark battled against Highland. On Blue and White Day there were not too many Clarkites who forgot to be loyal with blue and white colors. At Wednesday’s pep session Coach Aldrich cannot quite under¬ stand why Clark has been excluded from those favored to win in the East Chicago Sectional. " What did you say, Mademoiselle ShimaLa?” announcer Bill Hoover asks Highland fan. “Clark is not going to win!” 1960 Stayer ,0 Dea i “Then a policeman came, and he jumped on me.

The two act situation comedy proved to be one of Clark’s most humorous productions. The plot of the story centers around Miriam Wil¬ kin ' s writing of “letters from home” to a certain soldier, Lieutenant William Seawright. The conflict arises when she uses the signature of her older sister Ruth. When the lieutenant unexpectedly comes home, as Judge and Mrs. Wilkins discover, he is set to marry Ruth. Even though the lieutenant has uncovered that Ruth is already engaged to be married to Albert Kum¬ mer, he tries to dissuade her with gifts of lilacs and Cracker Jacks. His gifts are not in vain for the lieu¬ tenant and Ruth are quickly married by Judge Wil¬ kins, much to the despair of Albert. Just as the wedding ceremony is over, another one of Miriam’s pen pals, a homesick sailor, walks in and disrupts the entire family — especially Miriam who has gotten a little tipsy from the “spirits of the world.” Production Director, Miss Rhoda Kittelsen demonstrates an impor¬ tant scene with Jerry Robey. 18 ' Pfatf ’Piaveb fo 6c cut T truuvUou ?ance “ ‘But oh my foes and oh my friends, it gives a lovely light.’ Ruth, I don’t feel so good!” moans Miriam.

This play is a delightful portrayal of the comic plights of Professor Charles Burnett and his meddling but well-meaning family. The setting for the comedy in three acts is the living room of a professor’s home in a small univer¬ sity town. In this parlor we watch Marian Burnett, the too helpful wife, involve her husband in a scheme to secure for him the position of president of the university. As an added trouble, the professor’s daugh¬ ter, Christine, falls in love with Eddie West, the editor of the university newspaper. The final test comes when Governor Sam Bright and the editor of the town paper, Mel Granite, decide to involve the professor and Eddie West in their web of political intrigue. Enmeshed in all these troubles, the professor manages to emerge triumphant, com¬ manding the admiration of his entire family. Marian . I Use Economou K a y.Judi Wampler Charles.Joe Jackson Chris .

The Senior Class dance, “Poinsettia Party,” was climaxed by two kings and two queens, David Talabay and Lenore Kocot, and Bert Mullins and Beth Adams. Band music added spark to Clark’s fun lovin ' dances this year. While popular records still went round and round, at many casual dances a group known as the Rejects played popular rock ’n roll music. Enthu¬ siastic teenagers clapped and screamed their approval of this group composed of Clark students and grad¬ uates. Other popular dance bands appeared at the prom and semi-formal dances. Several dance ideas caught on at Clark. At our Halloween dance students paraded around in their trick or treat costumes and revelled at the discovery of disguised friends. In the true leap-year spirit girls were given an added advantage at several turnabout dances. Various school organizations and classes worked hard to make their dance a successful and enjoyable one. Streamers seemingly floated above the dance floor while clever decorations, expanding upon the theme of the dance, attracted everyone’s eye. The Rejects, a rock and roll group, are a familiar sight at many of the dances. They are composed of present and past students of Clark. 22 The Junior and Senior Class presidents with their dates lead the Grand March. St. ‘SoMct fatut The height of the social season, the Junior Class Prom, came on Friday, May 29, 1959, at Madura’s Danceland. The Class of 1960 and their guests, the Class of 1959, danced to the music of Buddy Pressiner and his band, enjoyed refreshments, and talked with class friends at tables decorated with lilac and silver. The grand march brought the dance to an end, and for some the evening was over. Others flocked to local restaurants to dine and dance before their evening finally came to a close. The day after the prom finds people picnicking at the beach to climax their prom activities. 23 £nct ' tyeat ‘TtuatCe cuicC " Subtle, ifeferoack Remember that last, hectic week of school? What happened to those resolutions to keep the locker clean? Everyone still ended up carrying home odds and ends that accumulated in the locker since last Sep¬ tember. Who ever thought of holding report cards until library fines were paid . . . That’s another thing that had to be taken care of during the last week. Oh, that sneaky eighth hour that never was taken — you were nearly in your library seat but Miss Lake just never seems to understand. And all the text¬ books have to be turned in; how can books ever gather so much scrap paper! The Senior Class Day assembly was the climax of that busy week. There were a lot of laughs at the Senior Class will and history. Seniors had a lot to think over - four years of fun and study. Al¬ though all had dreams for the future, Seniors felt sentimental during that last week of high school. Counselor McAfee advises Freshman Jean Tolchinsky about the advantages o f attending Clark summer school. 24 Sutiaete tkc ' Jutune Choosing announcements is a sign of approaching graduation as seniors Judy Lovrinich, Marco Trbovich, Judy Makson, and Monette Brown discover. Baccalaureate on June sixth opened the graduation exercises for the Class of 1960. To the music of “Pomp and Circumstance,” played by Mr. Eret’s or¬ chestra, the soon-to-be graduated Clarkites march to the stage for Commencement, June eighth. With mixed feelings of happiness and sadness they proudly received their diplomas from Principal O. B. Hayward. Graduation is the climax of the four years spent in high school. For these seniors even the graduat.on will soon be part of the past. ' tyoicr " PCace Each Clark student has a place in academics. George Rogers Clark extends to its students a wide variety of courses for all interests. These courses range from sewing to chemistry, from trigonometry to speech. Three courses offered at Clark — college preparatory, commercial, and general — prepare each student for his future. Backgrounds of Literature and Language Cross illiteracies, vocabulary, public speaking, and translations face the students enrolled in the various cultural courses at Clark. Three semesters of English and three of Literature are required for graduation. In their senior year the college-bound pupils may take advanced composition and senior literature to prepare for the challenges of university work. Students become proficient in English through mastery of grammar and the art of composition. Through literature the student becomes acquainted with the history and the people of his native land as well as those of foreign lands. Besides gaining a knowledge of Spanish, German, or Latin in a two-year foreign language class, Clark- ites become familiar with the people, customs, and culture of the country involved. Speech and debate train students in the mechanics of speech and give valuable experience in public speaking. Debaters enter district and state competi¬ tion with forensic groups of other high schools. In journalism the students learn the principles of good writing. ‘‘Has the bell rung” or ‘‘Did the bell ring” — which one is correct? Miss Silvasi confronts her Junior English class with this problem. Speech courses enable students to develop their public speaking habits. Here Paul Smirga gives a speech on measles. 28 Prepare Students For the Future Mrs. Katherine Benne, Indiana poetess and G.R.C. grade-school teacher, leads a panel discussion concerned with F. Scott Fitz¬ gerald. Members of the literature panel are Karen Johnson, Lauretta Coppage, and Norm Issacs. Marco Trbovich writes c the board the title of one of Fitzgerald’s short stories as Mi Wulkow, English instructor, looks on. The study of contemporary United States history at Clark gives a chance to compare and discuss their opinions and to defend such students as Gail Burney, Bob Shumaker, and Judi Wampler their ideas. Knowledge of the World Strengthened Social studies, which pertains to society and human relationships in a governed community, includes United States history, world history, economics, and government. Economics is a relatively new course being offered to seniors at Clark. The course explains in detail man’s production, distribution, and consumption of goods. As a one-semester course government is offered to seniors to help them attain a better understanding of the form and functions of American government. Designed to give a better understanding of the development of civilization from the earliest times to the present, world history also develops a cultural background of the fine arts for the student. Mean¬ while the primary object of United States history, a one-year required course, is to give the student a full knowledge of the history of his own country and cf current affairs. In Mr. Erickson’s Economics class, students get a chance to look over the baffling financial pages of the leading United States newspapers. 30 Mr. Martin, chemistry instructor, points out the different parts of the atom to his chemistry class. Clark witnessed a big change in the science depart¬ ment this year when biology, formerly a required sophomore course, was transferred to the freshman schedule. Now the freshmen must absorb some in¬ formation about insects, plants, and a tremendous array of other living objects from microscopic organ¬ isms to man. Health, a required course, delves fur¬ ther into the study of man. Specific gravity, accelerated motion, vector forces, transverse waves, and Boyles law compose but a small fraction of the new terms which our physics students have learned to apply. Studying about the physical nature of matter, these brave students meet the chal¬ lenge of assimilating new and complex information. Often detected by the odor in the hall about the library, the chemistry class may be found studying the chemical composition of matter. Clark’s young chemists learn to balance equations, to write form¬ ulas, to predict reaction results, and to perform a myriad of other functions concerned with matter. In two extra hours of class, these chemists are released in the laboratory to observe for themselves the laws of chemistry. Scientists Accept the Challenges Higher Mathematics Extends Opportunities In advanced alegbra Richard Miller carefully checks the slide rule to be sure his answer is correct. The Mathematics department at George Rogers Clark offers a widely diversified program of study suitable for the interests and needs of any student. To provide a firm foundation for students who plan to engage in advanced mathematical work five sub¬ jects are offered — algebra, advanced algebra, plane geometry, trigonometry, and solid geometry. Algebra introduces students to technical mathematics. In ad¬ vanced algebra the students delve into more complex algebraic problems and solutions. In geometry stu¬ dents not only learn the laws applying to geometric figures, but they also learn the principles of logical thinking. In their final year of high school mathemati¬ cally inclined seniors may take trigonometry and solid geometry. In trig the students combine their knowl¬ edge of algebra and geometry with new mathematical principles in solving problems of the triangle and other figures. In solid geometry students develop their abilities to visualize mentally and to think scientif¬ ically. Meanwhile general mathematics provides prac¬ tice in solving non-technical problems. For Thinking and Reasoning Miss Booth trigonometry instructor explains the graphs of the sine and cosine of an angle to her math-minded students in sixth period trigonometry. General mathematics enables Clarkites to improve their general mathemat cal skills as these students are discovering. Clark Commercialist Prepare For Future Future secretaries increase speed and accuracy on machines in the business courses offered at Clark. Senior girls in transcription courses are tested by recordings played to them on phonograph records. This year approximately one-half of the student body participated in the commercial program. This number included not only students participating in the regular commercial course, but also students par¬ ticipating in the general course and in the college prep course. There are eight major commercial subjects — short¬ hand, typing, business machines, bookkeeping, bus¬ iness law, commercial mathematics, consumer educa¬ tion, and general business. After a year of typing, a student should be able to accurately type between 40 and 60 words per minute. Typing is the most popular subject. Second in popularity is shorthand. In begin¬ ning shorthand the student learns to transfer spoken words into shorthand symbols. In transcription one learns to read shorthand and transfer it into typed longhand. Business machines is a subject in which the student learns to operate the adding machines, calculators, and duplicator. Fundamental filing is also taught. Bookkeeping trains him to keep records of business transactions. A survey of legal forms and laws of the business world is given in business law. Commercial mathematics is of use not only on the job, but also in everyday situations. One learns how to buy wisely in consumer education, and in general business learns to use banking facilities and other business facilities. These subjects have a practical value for everyone. Senior Glen Etheridge carefully completes his bookkeeping and checks it to be sure it is right. 34 Business Occupations Charts to trace the values of common stock are plotted by consumer education students. Here Barbara Cootee adds the latest informa¬ tion to her chart of Gillette stock. 35 Practical and Fine Arts Complete Home Management aids prospective homemakers in anticipating the problems for perfecting the home. Here Donna Mitchell and Judy Bednar inspect some crystalware. Classes such as industrial arts, shop, mechanical drawing, and home economics may be used by stu¬ dents in anticipation of college, business, and home¬ making. Students employ industrial arts courses to aid them in careers of engineering or other related occupations. In shop classes, students become acquainted with tools and their efficient use. As preparation for being an engineer, carpenter, or draftsman, mechanical drawing classes are valuable. Art class aids many students who plan to become artists, designers, or decorators. In home economics various subjects are studied, thus giving a well-rounded background for the home¬ maker, dietician, clothes designer, or teacher with well-balanced appetizing meals being stressed. By taking home economics, clothing course students learn of various fabrics, designing, and general appear¬ ance. Before graduation every student must take four semesters of gym or athletics. Many students choose music classes for enjoyment or experience. Student ' s Academic Schedules The sewing room is always full of Clark girls eager to learn the Cynthia Werner, and Pat Adams work on their various sewing tricks of clothing and sewing. Here Susan Konechni, Pat Keller, projects. The bandroom is constantly filled with musical sounds coming from the pupils of Mr. Snider, band director. 37 Bob Margeta, right, attained the highest scholastic average in his four years at Clark to be named valedictorian. Phil Holden, left, received the honor of salutatorian. Students of High Caliber Receive Honor and Junior Rotarians: Dennis Barton, Cary Hoffman, Rudy Almasy, Phillip Holden, Robert Margeta, Dan Kozlowski, Bert Mullins, Pat Foale was chosen to represent Clark at the 1960 Girls’ and Jerry Robey. State. Her alternate is Donna Mitchell. Philip Holden and Mary Beth Silvian were named among the National Merit Scholarship finalists. Philip was also named the recipient of the Bausch and Lomb Company honorary science medal. Recognition Arlene Anti I la was chosen by her classmates to be the recipient of the D.A.R. award. Arlene, active in several clubs, was a delegate to Girls’ State in 1959. Phyllis Kandalec was named Clark’s 1960 Betty Crocker Home¬ maker of Tomorrow. She received the highest score in a written examination on homemaking knowledge. Clara Welty was the initial recipient of the Lyle Memorial Award. The award is given to the outstanding Sophomore biology student. 39 Faculty Develops Student Qualities Principal 0. B. Hayward Ph.B. University of Chicago, A.M. University of Chicago, Brown Univer¬ sity, Illinois State Normal University. Abundant and varied opportunities are offered to Clark students by the many clubs and activities in which they may participate. While scholarship comes first in any true scale of values, active member¬ ship in extra-curricular affairs gives students a chance to work with others and to develop those qualities of character so basic to a wholesome and effective personality. Almost every student has found a place for himself somewhere in the varied field of the activities program. The record of honors, activities and achievements of our students in this year is an imposing and interesting one, and the POWDER HORN as a me¬ dium of presenting them is unsurpassed. We take great pride in this record and commend most heartily all students who in scholarship or in activities have helped to honor the name of George Rogers Clark. 3 - 4T- 7 - Counselors Anticipate Student Needs Miss Veva McAtee, Director of Guidance B.A. M.A., National Mr. Arnold Corder, Guidance Counselor B.S.

Mr. Martin enjoys tennis, golf, and bowling. He is also interested in vegetable gardening, carpentry, reading adventure stories, and watching television. He sponsors the Freshman and Sophomore Hi Y and sponsored the Class of 1952. He feels that schools are too lenient, and that many students graduate without learning adequately. He also feels that more than one type of diploma should be offered, one for good grades and one for a student who meets the state ' s minimum requirements for graduation. David Hein . . . B.S. . . .

Co-sponsor of the Class of 1961. Coach Emerson Aldrich, after leaving Irving High School, came to Clark in 1946 where he taught math, physical education, health and safety, and took full charge of varsity football, basketball, and baseball. Because of the amount of work involved in being a coach, he was forced to devote all of his time teach¬ ing math and coaching. Taking slide films and attending any type of sport show rates high as the pastime of one of Clark’s busiest coaches. He finds relaxation by occasionally taking fishing and hunting trips along with short trips around the mid-west. Coach Aldrich enjoys working with young people, and keeps in touch with, his former players and yell leaders. 44 Give Consideration and Understanding Soon after coming to Clark in 1947, Mrs. Eddy was appointed sponsor of the class of 1951. Among her activities at Clark, was the sponsorship of Latin Club. She also taught German and home management. Be¬ sides having a Ph.B., she also went to nursing school for one year. She enjoys hospital work greatly and would like to work in a hospital in the future. Her hobbies consist of photography, traveling, cooking, entertaining friends, and being active in her church affairs. She spent one summer at Colorado Springs taking a course in photography. She has also done extensive traveling. Mrs. Rebekah Eddy retired last year after twelve years of service to Clark students. Lillian F. Wilcox . . . B.A. . . . Latin . . . Remedial Reading . . .

Miller, super¬ intendent; Mr. N. C. Scott, secretary; TOP ROW: Mr. E. C. Wiley, member; Mr. C. Smith, treasurer; Mr. C. Schonert, super¬ intendent of building grounds. The Hammond Board of Education, under the capable direction of the new Superintendent Mr. R. B. Miller, influences the students’ school lives a great deal. The School Board directs the funds for the entire Hammond system. It is under the board’s guidance that the programs in the various Hammond schools are carried out with great dexterity an d punctuality. The board has made it possible for Clark to use facilities which provide for both educational and recreational development. The new Superintendent, Mr. R. B. Miller, was principal here at Clark for 18 years, 1932-1950. Mr. Miller has been at his present duties since December 1, 1959. He has been planning for the future for some time, even before being elected to the office of Superintendent. He hopes that before long, classes in driver-training and Russian will be offered in the Hammond schools. R.B. Miller, former principal of Clark, was elected superintendent of Hammond Public Schools. L. L. Caldwell Denotes Years of Service Lee L. Caldwell, superintendent of the Hammond school for 37 years, died unexpectedly June 1, 1959. Mr. Caldwell came to Hammond as superintendent of schools in 1922 after serving as superintendent in a number of Iowa schools and at Monmouth, Illinois. His work in the Hammond system is regarded as for making it one of the best in the country. Mr. Caldwell, who was never known to take a real vacation, frequently remarked that his relaxing was done at home where he took particular pride in rais¬ ing flowers and shrubs not native to the Midwest. He was a member of the Indiana State Education Commission, Phi Delta Kappa, professional education society, Hammond Rotary Club, Lake County Crippled Children’s Society, and Hammond School for the Blind. His principals and beliefs won him wide recognition and several awards, among them were the Award of Merit from the Hammond Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and a Freedom Founda¬ tion award for outstanding achievements in bringing about better understanding of the American way of life. Mr. Caldwell earned his undergraduate degree at Simpson College and Iowa State Teachers College. He received a master’s degree from the University of Iowa, and took additional post-graduate study at the University of Chicago. In recent years the problem of hiring teachers and building new schools to meet the terrific flood of new pupils had occupied a great deal of his time. He was unquestionably the dominent figure in the city schools. Many sought to replace him as superintend¬ ent of schools, but none succeeded. Many of those who tried ended as close friends and joined those who credited him with creating one of the best school systems in the nation. Student Council Heads G.R.C.

The Student Council, sponsored by Raymond Buell, is the major part of our student government. Repre¬ sentatives are elected to the Council by their home¬ rooms. They discuss and then act upon important school problems and new ideas. One of their major projects this year was setting up regulations for hang¬ ing signs in the halls. During the school year the Student Council spon¬ sors assemblies, homecoming, and school spirit week. Everyone looks forward to the Council’s volley ball game. To provide finances for these projects a bi-an¬ nual magazine drive and the annual Inaugeral Ball are held. In addition to the Council, student government in¬ cludes the Student Review Board. The Board tries violators of the code for student conduct and specifies punishment. Inspecting lockers is a major part of the Board’s work. 50 Student Council Representatives ROW ONE: B. Wagner, V.

In this yearbook, the staff tried to tell the story of the school year as simply and clearly as possible. Since our classes are most representative of the school year, an entirely new section devoted to academics has been added. Following modern trends, the book was printed in a new type face. The staff worked hard in an effort to reach the All-American rating of the 1959 POWDER HORN, but much work had to be done before staff work could get underway. Plans were formulated by the editor and dummy editor at Indiana University High School Journalism Institute and conferences were held with the printer and engraver. After taking and cropping pictures, writing articles, and soliciting ads the finished project is distributed at the Senior Banquet. Then at the annual yearbook dance, enthusiastic Clarkites exchange autographs. Editor-in-Chief, Rudy Almasy; Business Manager, Judy Hric.

Potential stories — news, feature, and sports — are first gathered then covered. Page editors then lay out the dummy page, edit the copy, and fit the ma¬ terial to the page layout. Stencils undergo typing, headline application, and mimeographing. Circulation of 1200 newspapers to the studentry and to 100 exchange schools all over the country complete one week’s issue. Included in the goals set by the staff was an All- American rating. Success of the new picture process was the highlight of this year’s accomplishments. Last summer members of the staff journeyed to the Indiana University Journalism Institute and in the fall they attended a meeting at Franklin College. At the Hammond Times office four staff members worked out the Clark High School Edition for the Sunday supplement. Editor-in-Chief, Karen Johnson; Assistant Editor, Sherry Curevitz.

Clark’s loyal Booster Club is instrumental in pro¬ moting school spirit. The club members cooperate with cheerleaders in backing our teams by forming a cheering block at athletic contests. The three hun¬ dred members help make our basketball cheering section a success by wearing white shirts or blouses as well as by shouting encouragement to the team. Clark lettermen provide a sharp contrast to the white background by wearing their blue C-Club sweaters. A successful card section is also in use with the key words: ‘TEAM”, “VICTORY”, and “FIGHT.” Official membership in the club was secured by buying a Clark Booster Club pin. This year’s Booster Club, sponsored by Miss Rhoda Kittelsen, entered a float in the Homecoming Parade which won honor¬ able mention. G.R.C.’s Pep Band, a main organ of the Booster Club, boosts spirits at one of the home games. At each home game Clark’s cheering section works hand in hand with the Pep Band.

A.V.O.-Right Hand Aid to Education The Audio Visual Operators Club, under the leader¬ ship of Mr. Paul Wilkinson, provides a valuable sup¬ plement to Clark school life. The A.V.O. members use movie, slide, and filmstrip projectors to supple¬ ment classroom work with movies and filmstrips. They provide music for the Clark dances held during the school year by operating the tape recorder and record player. Other A.V.O. equipment includes an opaque projector, microphones, and an amplifier sys¬ tem. A.V.O. boys run the C.R.C. public address sys¬ tem. The club consists of approximately fifty-five mem¬ bers. Any boy who learns how to set up and run the equipment and passes a written test covering the equipment may be a member. A boy who earns fifty points by setting up, running, or taking down A.V.O. equipment receives a letter. Starred letters, which indicate the number of points a boy has earned, are also awarded. Tom Murzyn, during his free time, carefully repairs a broken film with a splice in the A.V.O. room. 57 Red Cross Sells Pins for Fund Raisi ng Photographers Contributions were given by the Clark Junior Red Cross to the Beatty Memorial Hospital and to the Carmelite Home. Money for these charitable purposes was raised by selling C.R.C. pins with graduation years on them and by the presentation of the film " Land of the Free " to Junior and Senior High stu¬ dents. Red Cross homeroom representatives collected articles to be sent overseas in a gift chest and in Red Cross boxes. Once each month the club met with the Hammond Council where they learned more about Red Cross work. One of Clark’s Red Cross members, Juvel Mar¬ tinez, was chosen secretary of the Hammond Council. In recognition of her leadership abilities Vaike Kuld- saar was given an expense paid trip to Miami Univer¬ sity where she learned about Red Cross Management. Clark’s chapter of the Junior Red Cross is sponsored by Miss Marie Ide. Junior Red Cross ROW ONE: R. Cooper, J. Burkey, P. Foster, V. Kuldsaar, C. Levin, C. Brehmer; ROW TWO: S. Solis, J. Yedinak, A.

The negatives are developed and prints made in the school darkroom, a small side room in 223. Preparing pictures for school publicity and for the I960 POWDER HORN are the two principle activities of the Photography Club. Since many pictures are taken, from which the best and most appropriate are selected, as many as 500 negatives may be proc¬ essed during the school year. The Photography Club has scheduled meetings dur¬ ing the activity periods and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. 58 Photography Club T. Banaszak, W. Chovan, L. Appleman, C.

Y-Teens Sell Potato Chips to Raise Funds Y-Teens, the high school branch of the Young Women’s Christian Association, is a service group sponsored by Miss Edna Howe. The primary objective of this club is to promote friendship among girls of all races and religions throughout the world. The sixty-five members of Clark’s Y-Teens meet every second Wednesday. Once a month representa¬ tives meet with other Y-Teen representatives in an intra-council meeting to discuss club activities. In February all regional Y-Teens sponsor the Sweetheart Ball, a semi-formal dance. Various money-making projects provide food and gifts for needy families in our community and funds for sending a member of the club to the annual Y- Teens Summer Conference. Plastic yearbook covers, sold by Y-Teens, prove handy for keeping a new POWDER HORN clean. Y-Teens sponsor a potato chip sale and serve refreshments at P.T.A. meetings. Y-Teens Doris Eduy, Jill Sandilands, and Janet Rybarczyk sell Clark folders to raise money for their club. Here Terry Fitz¬ patrick purchases one for his use. 59 Hi-Y Maintains and Extends High Ideals “To create, maintain, and extend throughout the home, school, and community, high standards of Christian character” is the purpose of the Hi-Y. Great enough interest was shown in Hi-Y this year to estab¬ lish two clubs: the Freshman-Sophomore Hi-Y, spon¬ sored by Mr. Edwin Martin; and the Junior-Senior group, sponsored by Mr. Paul Wilkinson. The Freshman-Sophomore Hi-Y gave Christmas food baskets to needy families in the community and donated profits from their dance plus personal gifts Freshmen-Sophomore Hi-Y ROW ONE; M. Trombley, J.

Serves School and Community The Girl’s Club of Christian Service is composed of two groups: the Freshmen and Sophomores, spon¬ sored by Mrs. Loretta Schneider and the Juniors and Seniors, sponsored by Mrs. Lillian Wilcox. The pur¬ pose of the Girls’ Club of Christian Service is to help others. This is accomplished by working on dif¬ ferent service projects. The Freshman-Sophomore group is composed of about thirty-five girls. They meet every activity pe¬ riod on the first Wednesday of each month. At Christ¬ mas the club gave a Christmas basket to an area family. The Junior-Senior group meets on the fourth Wed¬ nesday of each month during activity period. This group is composed of about fifty members. Each month the members perform a different service project. At Christmas time the club adopted an orphan for a day and later on they made a scrapbook and tray favors for a local hospital. Junior-Senior G.C.C.S. ROW ONE: T. Moskal, A. Wachel, M. Rak, N.

An opportunity to learn more about the teaching profession is offered by the Future Teachers of Amer¬ ica sponsored by Miss Delores McCampbell. The chief feature of this club is its cadet teaching program through which upperclass members participate as junior teachers in elementary and Junior High class¬ rooms. Students gain an insight into teaching as well as into their personal suitability for such a career. Annual activities include installation of officers and initiation of new members, an F. T. A. dance, and a spring dinner to honor senior members. A Christmas party was highlighted this year with an exchange of comical presents. Palko, A. Antilla, B. Adams, S. Kalina, P. Fech, J.

Joy Jackson, president, and Mary Rose Sweezey, secretary-treasurer, head the club which consists of twenty-two girls. These students meet every fourth Wednesday to reach a broader understanding of the part played by the secretary in the business world of today. To aid the girls the monthly meetings feature panel discussions by alumnae, who are now doing secretarial work, and demonstrations of office equipment. Talks by members of personnel in local industries describe the procedure for placing job applications and the desirable personal characteristics of a secretary. Czechanski, K.

Under the guidance of Miss Norabell Morri¬ son, this club gives students a chance for art expe¬ rience that they would normally not have. The club works on a float for the Homecoming parade as well as various dance decorations. Funds for art supplies come from proceeds of the club dance and dues. Members work individually with the art activity of greatest interest to themselves. Some prefer the three dimensional work offered in carving and clay molding. Others enjoy painting or doing charcoal or chalk drawings. The unlimited possibilities of mosaic work appeal to many. Members can enter their indi¬ vidual creations in state or local contests.

Library Club Furnishes Aid to Students The purpose of the Library Club is to serve the school and its students. Miss Harriet Lake and Mrs. Shirley Newkirk, sponsors, instruct members in pre¬ paring books for circulation, repairing damaged books, and checking out books and magazines. The club, which is composed of twenty members, enables students interested in library work to gain valuable experience in dealing with books and people. Members devote a daily study hall as well as time before and after school to library work. Any student with above average grades and a willingness to work is eligible for membership. Each year the club sponsors a Christmas party and a picnic for its members. A money-making project is also held to make possible the purchase of books and library supplies. Library Club ROW ONE: L.

Both clubs try to give students an idea of different health careers; the Nurses’ Club emphasizes the requirements and opportunities of nursing. Members are also made aware of the importance of personal and community health. The Health Career Club’s programs consist of speakers, discussions, and movies. These programs explore the professions of the X-ray technician, the medical technologist, and the teachers of deaf chil¬ dren. These students had the opportunity to visit agencies and organizations in order to obtain more information about the occupation in which they were interested. The Nurses’ Club collected gifts for the mental patients at Norman Beatty Hospital at Westville. This year representatives from three hospitals and two community health organizations spoke to the group. Each girl is given the opportunity to work in the nurses office during her free period. The combined clubs include about fifty-seven girls. Helpers in the nurse ' s office aid the nurse with her work. These he.pers are: P. Debnam, C. Nickel, C. Stone, C. Brehmer, J.

During the holiday season a dinner was held in celebration of the Roman Satrunalia, which is similar to the Christians Christmas. An authentic Roman slave auction was held during the Ides of March at which time other Latin students had the chance to buy the services of Latin Club members. At the end of the day, the slaves were freed in a traditional Ro¬ man ceremony. A major club project was to make a Roman calendar and, in celebration of Valentine’s Day, colorful Roman valentines were made. Latin Clu b STANDINC: C. Mihalo, B. Ference, C. Reichert, D.

Spanish Club Ventures into Chicago The sixty-five Spanish Club members strive to fur¬ ther their knowledge of Spanish customs and to enjoy their study of the Spanish language, thereby acquaint¬ ing themselves with Spanish countries and promoting world peace. Besides meeting during activity period, the club un¬ der the guidance of Mrs. Elaine Gonzalez, has fur¬ thered the members understanding of Spanish culture by visiting the Spanish Society in Chicago and by see¬ ing the Spanish ballet dancer, Jose Greco. Added recreation was found in a spring picnic, various parties, and Spanish movies. Cha cha lessons were given to the members. All members have been enrolled in a Spanish class at sometime.

The Biology Club, sponsored by Mr. Edward Powell, was set up as a supplement to the biology course offered to freshmen and sophomores. The 40 club members meet every Wednesday during activity pe¬ riod. To the students interested in furthering their knowledge of biology, the club offers many varied and interesting activities. Movies on the different branches of biology and a field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, were used to stir interest in science. Science projects such as egg incubation and micro¬ photography were used to challenge the students ' scientific abilities. The topics of the projects range from evolution to the free-fall filtration system. These projects were submitted to the Hammond Science Fair in the spring. Hi-Fi Club Attracts Record-Minded Teens The unofficial Hi-Fi Club which meets every Wed¬ nesday during activity period is one of the largest activities now in progress at Clark. Many students who do not have a selected activity to attend, venture into the newly decorated music room to listen to rec¬ ord albums played by Mr. Wakeland. Approximately 65 people attend every gathering. Stereo recordings played on the new Steroephonic Hi-Fidelity are an added attraction. The records which are played are chosen from Mr. Wakeland’s collection, from the vocal music’s collection, and from those records which participating students bring. These records range from symphonies to contemporary jazz, from vocal concerts to the popular rock and roll. Mr. Wakeland supplies commentary about the composi¬ tion, the composer, and the conductor to give the listeners better background to the records being played. 66 One-Fourth of All Students In Music A Cappella Choir ROW ONE: M.

The Vocal Music Department, sponsored by Mr. William Wakeland, stimulates over 200 music-minded students in the development of their musical skills. The vocal music classes are arranged in four younger groups, Boy’s chorus and three Girls’ choruses. A Cappella and Girls’ Choir are the most advanced groups. Throughout the year vocal music students are on the look-out for musical television programs. A large part of the department took a field trip to see Music Man in Chicago. A Cappella, the most advanced group got into the holiday mood by going Christmas caroling at the Bank of Whiting. They also provided a musical supplement for P.T.A. meetings as well as singing for other civic groups. In addition to the groups which meet during school are the ensembles, which meet before or after school. Harmoneers is the boys ensemble and the Harmon- ettes and Melotones are select groups of girls. From these groups are taken a Girls’ and a Boys’ Quartet. A Madrigal group specializes in singing songs written during Medevial days. In February the ensembles participated in vocal contests and were judged on the basis of tone quality, pitch, and clarity. These groups provide music for many community activities. The entire group worked together in the presenta¬ tion of several impressive programs. On December 3, the groups featured both religious and popular music in their annual Winter Concert. Special musical rec¬ ognition was given to the Christmas and Hannakkah holidays. In March the annual Spring Concert was presented featuring show tunes from stage plays. The entire department again participated in the bacalau- reate services held in June. A Cappella, Boys’ Chorus, and Girls’ Choir spon¬ sored the assembly given by the Wabash College Choir. Through these groups arrangements were made for housing the boys. The evening before the assembly a dinner was held in honor of the outstanding Glee Club. 67 Girls Choir ROW ONE: ). Botsch, R. Flisiak, ]. Mihalo, N. Regashus, C. Hoyda, P. Krygier, C. Francisco, D.

Band Begins First High Year on Risers Sigrid Trombley narrates the comical story of the conductor’s podium and baton at the mid-winter concert. Clark’s Senior Band begins its years activities marching in perfect formation during half-time at the home football games. Throughout the rest of the school year, the band turns in fine performances at parades, concerts, basketball games, pep rallies, as¬ semblies, and the Hammond Music Festival. The band membership this year totaled sixty-six persons. An added facility for the band members this year were the risers, which the Clark P.T.A. helped purchase. Under the direction of Mr. Carlyle Snider the band presents two annual concerts — a Winter Concert in January and a Spring concert in May. At the Spring Concert the traditional keys are presented to the Senior members and the gold key is given to the most valuable senior member. The most valuable person is chosen by the individual band members. The pep band, consisting mainly of senior mem¬ bers, is a miniature band formed for the purpose of boosting school spirit. It performs for the basketball games, assisting cheerleaders with peppy songs and marches. Senior Band ROW ONE: M.B. Silvian, P. Fech, C. Kessler, ). Vater, J. Tolchinsky, M. McCutcheon, ).

Halik, Orchestra Members to Manchester Every day during fourth period the ventilator shafts at the north end of the building leaked music, as the orchestra room was taken over by Mr. Darwin Eret’s Senior orchestra. While chamber music was the fav¬ orite of the twelve string members, pieces ranging from Bach to Broadway show tunes were played. This year four ensembles and one violin solo rep¬ resented the orchestra at the region’s annual music contest. The top musicians from each section of the orchestra journeyed to Manchester College in Man¬ chester, Indiana to play in t he annual string music festival. The orchestra again played for Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises. A pleasant diversion for the musicians was a birth¬ day party for Beethoven on his 150th birthday. All orchestra members interested in gardening were in¬ vited to join the Carden Club. Shirley Hobbs carefully checks her cello to be sure it is in tune before the orchestra rehearsal begins. 72 Modern Dancers Perform for Teachers Through Modern Dance, girls interpreted, through body movements, the moods found in music. Miss Kenzie, sponsor, hoped that through club activities participants were able to gain self-confidence and poise. The years activities included an October program given for a Teachers ' Association meeting in Ham¬ mond. In March the dance group cooperated with the vocal music department in the presentation of the Spring Concert. They performed to the “Dance of the Siamese Children, " “I Could Have Danced All Night, " and “Steam Heat. " After numerous tryouts. Modern Dance members were chosen on the basis of skill and practice session attendance. The 43 members met in the evenings or on weekends. After certain dance techniques were taught, girls worked individually or in small groups creating original dances. Modern Dance girls practice Wednesday evenings in the big gym to perfect their dances for presentation. Modern Dancers Dawn Hickman, Carol Ruf, Kitty Kurasz, Carol Cudek, and Pat Kreiger perform to the music of " The King and I” at the spring show, 1 Stage Struck. 73 Stage Crew Backs All Productions Stage Crew ROW ONE: D.

Offers Active Sports for Girls jMm Under the sponsorship of Miss Doris Meyers, Clark s Girls Athletic Club participates in four major sports. These are basketball, swimming, softball, and bowling. Each member must actively participate in at least two of these major sports. The main objective of G.A.C. is to stress good mental and physical health. Selling refreshments at all home football games is one of the financial aids of the club. Another financial aid of the club is the G.A.C. dance. This years dance was a Halloween Masquerade Dance. All those who attended were dressed in some traditional Halloween costume. The popular and anticipated event of the year is the annual Mother-Daughter Banquet. At this affair the next years officers are installed and awards given out. Girls who have earned a substantial number of points are awarded monagrams or letters. Trophies are also awarded to the members of the winning teams in each of the major sports. The senior girl with the highest number of points during her mem¬ bership in G.A.C. is presented a special pin. Approximately 120 Clark girls participate in G.A.C. basketball, the most rigorous sport offered to the girls. 90 Freshman Elaine Pinkston displays her perfect diving form during C.A.C. swimming at the Whiting Com¬ munity Center. Swimming is held after school for those girls interested. C.A.C. Officers: Lenora Kocot, Secretary; Paula Knish, Treasurer; Arlene Antilla, President; Nancy Crou.h.

C-Club Actively Displays School Spirit Under the direction of the co-sponsors, Coach Norman Banas and Coach Steve Stavros, the C-Club has formed one of the most active organization in George Rogers Clark. The club is made up of major- letter winners from all the inter-school sports in which Clark is a participant. The C-Club was designed to band the athletes into an organization to promote school spirit and sportsmanship. Selling popcorn at home football games and in room 6 every night after school is one of the many C-Club activities. They also sell football programs at all home games to help raise money to purchase jackets and trophys for the lettermen. Completing the sources of revenue for the C-Club is their annual dance. Held in April, the dance fea¬ tures the crowning of the C-Club sweetheart. Each C-Club member votes for one girl that is nominated by the C-Club. Holding their meetings on every second Wednes¬ day of every month, the C-Club formulates plans for displaying their school spirit and sportsmanship. Forming a line for the basketball team to run through at the Whiting and Morton games highlighted the season. Forming a block “C” in the cheering section at the sectional tourney was also a highlight of the season. Topping the year was the annual C-Club banquet held in the Clark cafeteria. At this affair all the de¬ serving athletes receive awards for their efforts. Wayne Cunningham, former athletic director at Clark, was the principle speaker while Mr. Ralph Cox acted as toastmaster. 97 ' tyoun Place it Each Clark student has a place in his class. Pioneers take part in their class activities: elections, dances, plays, and banquets. Through the several class-com¬ mittees, Clarkites learn to handle responsibilities and to work with those in their class. With Memories of Prom Only to Remain The Class of 1960 was officially organized in Feb¬ ruary of 1957, under the sponsorship of Mr. Bernard Charlet. Our first important task as freshmen at George Rogers Clark was the election of class officers. Mary Beth Silvian was elected President with Sherry Gure- vitz assisting her as vice-president. Recording the minutes was Carol Conrad, and counting all the funds was left to Bob Zato. The most outstanding event of our ‘green year’ was our class dance, “Jump ‘n Jive”, on February 15, 1957. Our Sophomore year began with the addition of another sponsor to our class, Mr. Raymond Buell. Lee Weiss was chosen president. Assisting him were Ed Bojda as vice-president, John Mehok as secretary and Gary Hoffman as treasurer. The early portion of the year was spent in choosing our class rings. The most spectular event of the year was our unique class dance, “Bermuda Holiday " , on May 2, 1958, which was characterized with bermudas as the offical garb. As Juniors, we placed the leadership of our class in the hands of Bert Mullins. Dave McClure served as vice-president, Joanne Palko as secretary and Paula Knish handled the monetary funds of the class. Now upper classmen, we portrayed our acting talents in the class play, " Dear Ruth”. “Oriental Holi¬ day” set a misty motif for our class dance on April 10, 1959. The spectacular of the year, however, was our Prom, “Lilac Champagne " held on May 29th. A lilac and silver color scheme was used by the decoration committee in preparation for the Big Night. At last, we are Seniors! We chose Dan Kozlowski as our president, Mary Rose Sweezy as vice-president, and Marcia Madura and Paula Knish as secretary and treasurer respectively. We’ll always remember our Big Homecoming — our Queen, Paula Knish; the skits given by hard-work¬ ing Seniors; the pep rally, parade, game, and finally, the Homecoming dance at Danceland. But most of all, we’ll remember our last class dance, “Poinsettia Party” on December 18, 1959. Ordering name cards, announcements, caps and gowns, we finally get into the swing of graduation. The hustle and bustle in preparation for the Senior Banquet at Teibels’, Class Day, Baccalaureate, and finally, GRADUATION, June 8, 1960. Senior Class Officers SEATED: Marcia Madura, Secretary; Paula Knish, Treasurer; STANDING: Dan Kozlowski, President; Mary Rose Sweezey, Vice-President. 100 In September We Started School Again This is Jerry Wozniak, an average senior at George Rogers Clark. Jerry begins his school day with a good breakfast and a quick scan of the morning newspaper. Chemistry, one of many classes in his curriculum, is a course taken by many seniors just like Jerry. Jerry proudly displays his C-Club sweater, a symbol of athletic achievement. Besides school work, many seniors find time to participate in extra-curricular activities. This is a scene from “Dear Ruth”, in which Jerry played the part of Sergeant Chuck Vincent. Dancing, a form of relaxation enjoyed by many seniors at Clark, is an activity which Jerry likes very much to take part in. 1 Again We Returned to Clark in the Fall SARA BETH ADAMS " Beth” — Student Government 4; POWDER HORN 2-3-4; PIONEER NEWS 3; Vocal Music Organizations 1-2-3-4; Debate 2; Booster Club 1-2-3-4; Future Teachers of America 1-2-3-4; Stage Crew 2-3; Spanish Club 1-2; Conservation Club 1-2- 3-4; Y-Teens 1-2-3-4; Modern Dance 1-2; C.A.C. 1-2-3-4; Girl ' s State 3; National Honor Society 4.

Vast opportunities ranging from military service to degrees in scienc e, liberal arts, and business are the goals challenging the abilities and incite of this Senior Class. Weighing their accomplishments, interests, and abilities the seniors have decided: Approximately forty per cent are planning to enter college . . . extension or campus. Scholarships and funds which are offered, have been used to the best advantages. Colleges from Harvard to the University of Cali¬ fornia will be receiving applications. Thirty-eight per cent plan on secretarial and clerical offers together with various business colleges. The others comprising twenty-two per cent are interested in marriage or military life. 116 We Bid Our School a Sad Good-Bye Mr. Bernard Charlet, Sponsor Mr. Raymond Buell, Sponsor Dear Class of 1960: It has given us a great deal of satisfaction to have worked with you these last four years. As your class advisors we hope that in some way we have contributed to your intellectual, artistic, and social development. Many of you have great possibilities to become cultural and intellectual leaders. In any endeavor we are certain that the education which you have received at George Rogers Clark High School has helped you to become very constructive young adults concerned that society may benefit from your own abilities. Thomas Jefferson said, “If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” In the face of today’s challenges to freedom, it is highly important that you, as citizens of this great country, make the best use of your abilities and talents. For you now belong to a generation which must face new ideas, new issues — a new call to carry on the work of democracy. Both of us wish every member of the Class of 1960 the very best luck in the future. Sincerely, 117 Junior Class Anticipates " Senioritis” Junior Class Officers: Mr. Michael Hriso, sponsor; Aaron Roy, vice-president; Sharon Taylor, secretary; Jim Paskewietz, presidant; Bob Shumaker, treasurer; Mr. Oral Watkins, sponsor.

Hot lunches planned on a balanced diet are offered to every teacher and pupil. The government school-lunch program aids in keeping the cost of lunch extremely nominal. The office staff keeps the correspondence, financial, and supply aspects of our school running smoothly. The duties of the office staff greatly help every student. Care and maintenance of the school building and surrounding grounds is carried out by Clark’s jani¬ torial staff. Excellent cooperation and general effi¬ ciency describe the friendly nature of the members of this staff as they aid Clark students daily in various ways. Emergencies or special events are always ac¬ companied by extra help from the janitorial staff. People behind the scenes are responsible for the general affectiveness and success of our system. 129 ' tyou ' i ' Place 1 1 rfdventiautfy Each Clarkite has a place in advertising. Because of Clark’s location in Robertsdale. Pioneers have at their disposal the facilities of both Whiting and Hammond shopping centers. Students learn to become intelligent consumers which is important to high school pupils. HARRY OLON ' S PRINTED BY Benton Review Pub. Co. f Inc. FOWLER, INDIANA 133 what’s their future The young people you see in these pictures are all on their way to successful careers in one of America’s basic industries . . . steel. They decided (as we hope you will decide) to let Inland Steel Company help them plan their future. Some are gaining knowledge and experience in spe¬ cial trades to become journeyman machinists, car¬ penters or electricians . . . some are concentrating on certain phases of steelmaking by working in the open hearth shops, the cold rolling mills or the galvanizing lines. Still others are working in laboratories building a sound foundation for a future in steel research. Inland offers the high school graduate an excellent opportunity to further his education. Employees may participate in a variety of on-the-job training pro¬ grams, or they can continue their formal education by registering for evening courses offered by local Purdue and Indiana University Extension Centers. Plan now to investigate the unlimited opportunities for you in steel . . . with the midwest’s own steel company ... inland steel.

After almost a year of careful planning and hard work we find the 1960 POWDER HORN com¬ pleted. Our bruises have healed; our minds are back to normal. Many things—too many things—have hap¬ pened while compiling G.R.C.’s annual: much gob- bledly-gook . . . nifty picture retakes ... A Multz’s . . . cooperation galore. We hope, however, that we have produced a yearbook that will depict an accurate story of Clark life during 1959-1960. Actually it has been an easy task. We have combined the qualities of our school and its people to show that everyone has A PLACE AT CLARK. Editor-in-chief . . . Business Manager . Literary Editors . . Assistant.
