Text from Pages 1 - 184 of the 1963 volume:

limb every mountain, Search high and low, Follow every byway, Every path you know. Climb every mountain, Ford every stream, Follow every rainbow Till you find your dream! A dream that will need All the love you can give Every day of your life For as long as you live. Climb every mountain, Ford every stream, Follow every rainbow Till you find your dream! fOli As each student arrives at Clark in the fall, he has in mind a certain goal. For some that goal may be to make a varsity athletic team; others hope to achieve a straight A average; still others seek to act in a school play. To reach his peak of success, each student must possess high ideals, a willingness to work, and the courage to face disappointments. The athletic hopeful may not make the team; the dedicated scholar may not earn a straight A; the would-be Thespian may never play a major role. What ever the challenge may be, we face each with the determination and zest typical of Clark teen-agers. Every team, class, or activity to which we contribute adds to our total goal. As 1963 draws to a close, we believe we have at least attempted to climb every mountain that Clark has presented to us. find xjour dr ream and Library Provide Intellectual Stimulus Knowledge is furthered in all facets of a Clark student’s life. In academic courses, the conscientious help of the teachers awakens the individual to the wonders of knowledge. The library makes available vast stores of human thought. There, resource ma¬ terial supplements assignments. Students gather in the library during study periods and after school to complete assignments or to find books for reports or extra reading assignments. Informally, the Clarkite acquires knowledge from his companions. Throughout the entire day, students rehash assignments. Open discussion promotes bet¬ ter understanding of the subjects. In activities stu¬ dents gain information from many different fields. Total experiences of Clark life greatly aid the stu¬ dent in his search for knowledge. Students also learn outside the school. Friendships Widen Interests Friendships compose an important part of each Clarkite’s life. Some friendships are fleeting, while others may last a lifetime. Some greatly enrich a person, while others degrade. Whatever the character of the friendship, it always adds to one’s store of vast and varied experiences. Activities nuture friendships. Meeting with friends in an activity’s special location is an im¬ portant part of the school day. Fellow musicians congregate in the bandroom. Aspiring journalists gather in the Pioneer News room. The athletic- minded assemble in the gym office. Debaters, photographers, and senior class officers converge on Mr. Erickson’s room. Even the teachers are able to find relaxation by retiring to the teacher’s lounge. Friendships begin with the faculty’s ex¬ ample. v % 8 and Nourish Expanded Cooperation When Clark students organize to defend an idea, they strengthen their faith in reliance on a friend. Friendship thrives on faith. When it’s time to relax, thoughts turn to the topics of the day. Both teachers and students congregate to share in casual chatter. 9 C Tie of the group Clarkites Find Teamwork a Snap Students illustrate school spirit by dressing in blue and white with booster buttons. Kathy Plaris and Barbara Ferrence are just two of the untidy locker partners at Clark. Rings pass hands as Clark students discover the boy or girl meant for them. 10 in Organizations Sharing experiences is one of the greatest re¬ wards at Clark. Students work as an enthusiastic group in basketball, Booster Club, debate, and plays. The high caliber of these organizations reflects the teamwork that made them strong. Wherever stu¬ dents are going, to the sectionals, Washington D. C., Springfield, or over to Condes’, they go together. The group, filled with pride for its school, por¬ trays the spirit of the Clark tradition. Perhaps the reason Clarkites work and relax as a group is that they have many things in common. Everyone en¬ joys the “Twist,” “Jack the Ripper,” and the “Horse.” Decorating houses is another fad that keeps students busy. Messy lockers characterize everyone’s busy school day. The epitome of high school togetherness—going steady—is another ex¬ perience shared by Clark students. Bob Vater shows Clarkites’ enthusiasm. Pietrzak Center of Homecoming Clamour as 1962 Homecoming was the most elabroate cele¬ bration Clark had seen in years. The cheerleaders, faculty, and student body prepared for weeks in anticipation of the traditional pep assembly, game, and dance. Enthusiasm soared at the pep assembly Friday afternoon. The Seniors presented a clever skit based on West Side Story. The Juniors proved to be the noisiest class by winning the yell contest. Finally, Jim Stasny, Booster Club President, drama¬ tically announced the 1962 Homecoming Queen and her court: Cheryl Bazarko, freshman attendant; Marge Wisniewski, sophomore attendant; Lorraine Noworyta, junior attendant; Cheri Hoffman, sen¬ ior attendant; and Joyce Pietrzak, queen. The band led the hour-long parade through Whit¬ ing and Robertsdale. The Spanish Club’s float and the senior class’s car won the honors in the com¬ petition. The game against Hammond Tech was dampened by a pouring rain and a Pioneer defeat. A dance in the gym Saturday climaxed the moment¬ ous weekend for the Pioneers. As tension rises among the entire student body before the announce¬ ment of the Homecoming queen and her court, it also rises among the C-Club escorts grasping the roses, awaiting the big moment. Mr. Daugherty inspires the team and cheering section by filling them with the “desire and enthusiasm” to Little George, scout for the Pioneer team, listens to plans made by the Tech team during the Homecoming pep assembly, unaware of the danger awaiting him. 12 Seniors Take Honors Seniors are readying their car for the upcoming parade where they proved fortunate by winning first place. Queen Joyce Pietrzak gives up her cheering assignment temporarily while she represents Clark as the 1962 Home¬ coming queen. Joyce smiles regally at her admiring subjects. Spanish Club seizing second place last year returned this year to take first with their float, “We’re No Fan of Tech’s.” The Cheerleaders’ f aces shine with pride during the successful homecoming festivities. 13 Clark Improvements Add Comfort to Work After thirty-two years of loyal service, these exhausted rem¬ nants are being replaced. Marred by scratches and etchings, the desks are no longer useful to Clark’s new modern trend. Scratch-proof, fire-proof, and student-proof desks have intro¬ duced the “new look” at Clark. The student can no longer engrave their initials in these new formica top desks. A.V.O. boys prepare our new microphone and speaker system for an assembly program. School bells ring. Children sing? It’s back to old GRC again. But old GRC is tainted with a touch of “new”. Forsaking nostalgia for progress, GRC welcomed its 1963 facelifting. A light of wisdom now falls upon students com¬ fortably seated in the most modern desk facilities. So comfortable indeed, that now and then students have been known to fall asleep in them. To further the student’s home-away-from-home, vending ma¬ chines have been provided. Varying from beverage dispensers to fresh-fruit dispensers, the student’s health as well as pleasure is tended. The latest and most efficient speaker systems have been added to our vast audio-visual department. Our instructors have not been neglected in 1963. A recently completed teacher’s lounge replaces the makeshift meeting places previously used. With pride we hold our facelifted heads high. An extra added attraction this year was the installation of vending machines. Freshman Liz Kmetz rummages through her purse contemplating whether to buy a delicious pear while Sophomore Mary Ann Poracky inserts a coin in the fruit machine to get her apple. 15 Inotlxer role - for a time Junior Class Play “Motion study is fine as long as it’s somebody elses motions you’re studying,” complains the Gilbreth’s housekeeper. Fun and frolic invaded the GRC stage when the Junior Class presented “Cheaper By the Dozen.” Six¬ teen players and a patient Miss Jeani Knapp, faculty director, can truly boast a successful two-nighter. Sixteen long days in preparation was enough to make this warm story live again. Our junior thes- pians proved to be just the rascals to fill the bill. Efficiency was Dad Gilbreth’s creed— so efficient that our own Lee Marcisz, portraying Dad, was the first on stage for those nightly rehearsals. The six sons and six daughters of the Gilbreths’, were guinea pigs for the motion study experiments. If occasionally the “dozen” proved unwilling, only an experiment in laughter would result. One such instance was the matter of the family pet. From the moment the frisky collie set foot in the house, you could hear Dad protesting, “Any pet that doesn’t lay eggs is an extravagance that a man with twelve children can ill afford.” The task of leashing the lively collie inclined Virginia Sroka and Karen Vasilko to agree with Dad. Successfully surmounting all tasks, the final cur¬ tain fell and the last of the butterflies flew. It’s a rug for a tub in this bathing demonstration. 16 Proves Theatrical and Financial Success At fingernail inspection the children get a welcome surprise as Dad gives in. Each child receives a gift, manicure sets for the girls and jackknives for the boys. Anne (Janet Macocha) hesitantly displays the pettis and silk stockings she bought, and argues about changing from old childish black stockings to the latest fashion, silk hose. Mr. and Mrs. Gilbreth check a new chart devised by Mr. Gilbreth for the elimination of wasted time. Mr. Gilbreth, an expert timesaver, manages everything with proficiency. Auditorium Sparkles with First Musical Merits “It’s never too late!” contends Lord Brockhurst (Ken Miller). May, 1962 marked the most resounding dramatic success in the school’s history. The Boy Friend was the first full-scale musical comedy to be pro¬ duced on the Clark stage. The directors, Miss Jeani Knapp and Miss Thelma Wilcox, overcame seemingly unsurmountable problems—teaching 6’ 7” Jerry Bercik to tap dance, training altos to sing soprano solos, getting A. J. Saliga to do the Charles¬ ton, and talking Ken Miller into wearing a striped, 1920’s bathing suit. But in two months, the cast was dancing and singing through three acts with fourteen musical numbers—and loving every minute of the experience. The Friday night performance received the first standing ovation in Clark’s history. The Boy Friend is a spoof of the 1920’s. It por¬ trays the razzle-dazzle of the era down to the last “vo-de-o-do.” The stereotyped plot concerns the girls at a finishing school at the French Riviera who are tracking down boy friends. A hackneyed ending resolves everyon e’s love affairs to the tune of “I Could Be Happy With You.” Just as a boy friend was “sine qua non” to the flappers so was the pit orchestra to the total effect of the show. Under the supervision of Mr. Snider, this group reproduced the two-beat, saxophone- heavy, cymbal-crashing music of the 1920’s. Polly (Barbara Hered) sings to Tony (Jerry Bercik) “I Could Be Happy With You”, as they dance on the beach. 18 Wide Acclaim “Don’t worry!” Percival Brown (Ed Jacobsberg) consoles Polly (Barbara Hered). “He will come back again.” “Come on baby, let’s show them that old vo-de-o-do!” says Bobby Van Husen (A. J. Saliga) to his flapper girl friend, Maisie (Linda Field). Assemblies Improve as The school year 1962-63 marked a change in the assembly system. Because of increased enrollment, assemblies were divided into two shifts. Assemblies were financed by the Student Coun¬ cil’s magazine drive. The Council held its own assembly to encourage sales to earn the money. A panel of representatives from four classes presented an assembly on the Community Chest. After touring Hammond charities, the students took part in a “Truth or Consequences” program hosted by Clark’s own Mark Moynihan. The panel mem¬ bers were asked serious and stunt questions. Wrong answers to questions found Tom Allison and Barb Hered twisting and Tom Snider singing. Students were enlightened in the facts of the March of Dimes peanut drive in a Talent Scout assembly. Other assemblies throughout the year were presented by the Vocal Music department. One of many assemblies for 1962-63 was the Earlham College Choir which spellbound the students during the hour program. 20 Participants Harmonize Facts and Comedy A Bell Telephone representative is about to turn these four Clarkites into a human tele¬ phone line. This assembly informed the students on Telestar and how it is and will be used. Senior Bobby Priesol demonstrates his musical ability by “playing the water.” The music from this new instrument was heard during the Community Chest assembly. Arthur Condo Godfrey rises as he introduces his next guest, Moishe Kokot Pepic, in the Community Chest Assembly. A wide variety of talent was presented at the assembly in order to inspire students’ enthusiasm. Pep Sessions Launch Clark Spirit while iffBil? ESC! i l illii | : ' U iSrl This year Clark High organized the first card section in Sectional history. Here, are Miss Knapp and Mr. Mybeck shout¬ ing orders to the section as it forms a huge blue G.R.C. This section helped Clark win the Sportsmanship trophy. Pep assemblies boosted the spirit of the students before many of the important basketball and foot¬ ball games. The pep band playing jazz tunes, the students filing into the gym, the cheerleaders lead¬ ing cheers, and the singing of “Go You Pioneers” were commonplace at every pep session. Before the Homecoming football game against Tech, Mr. Daugherty, a Clark graduate, gave a rousing address. The seniors presented their take¬ off on West Side Story. Songs included “The Clark Song” and “Sargeant Halupke.” Basketball coach Steve Stavros addressed the students before the fierce Clark-Whiting basketball duel. Jim Stasny, Booster Club president, added a few comments on school spirit in anticipation of the cross-town rivalry. The assembly before the all-important Sectional Basketball Tournament was started by Mr. Lockey, who encouraged the whole student body to back the team. The cheering section, which was unique in its use of cards, took his advice and solidly presented a demonstration of school spirit and were awarded Sectional Sportsmanship Trophy. “Coach” McCampbell shudders from the applause as she prepares to talk to her “team” at a pep assembly. Dances Mark Victory Junior Mike Maruszczak was one member of this combo which provided the music for one of the school dances. Seniors reminisced at the Senior Class dance, “Memories are Made of This . . Several posters, containing the major activities sponsored by the Class of ’63, decorated the back wall of the big gym. Cartoons of the Ideal Seniors adorned the walls of the little gym, where refreshments were served. Barbara Hered and A1 Lewandowski were chosen senior Queen and King. The Junior Class earned money for the Junior Prom by presenting “Shangri-La.” They created “a little bit of paradise” in the big gym with the oriental atmosphere and a striking pagoda. Homecoming would not have been complete with¬ out a dance Saturday following the game. Home¬ coming Queen, Joyce Pietrzak, presided over the frolic. Hordes of alums gathered with the student body to help in the elaborate celebration. G.A.C. used a bit of sectional spirit at their pre-lenten dance. The Freshman and Sophomore classes added to this list of dances. Shoeless Nancy Bragiel and her date Leo Ruzycki enjoy a good fast dance at this school affair. Two of Clark’s most active teachers, Miss Myers and Mr. Mybeck, try their hand at a few whirls at a school dance. Elegance and true beauty describe the 1963 Prom as the couples are led in the Grand March by Junior class vice-president Cliff Liehe and president Bob Ference and their dates. The orchestra plays on as they parade around St. John’s Panel Room. Versatile Class of 1963 Stages Prom then The big night arrived. Proud Juniors and eager Seniors hastily hurried to their pre-Prom parties. The Juniors were proud of their Prom arrange¬ ments; the Seniors were eager—eager to enjoy the Prom. “In the Still of The Night”, amid a silver and blue theme, dates, friends, and honored guests descended upon the Panel Room. A fine Junior Prom committee arranged for the hall, proposed the theme and exquisite decorations, and employed the melodies of Mr. Michael Golden and Orchestra. This gala formal event of the year climaxed the Seniors’ high school social calendar. As is tradition, the Juniors bore the brunt of the expenses for their big brothers, the Seniors. As the magic hour of midnight neared, the fren¬ zied anticipation of the Grand March materialized. The climaxical symbol of proms, the Grand March signaled the exodus of “high-steppers” to the night lights of Chicago and local areas. Enjoyment abounded and with no regrets, weary night owls made their way to the sandy beaches for a Saturday of relaxation and more FUN. The decorations for the Junior Prom, “In the Still of the Night” are displayed by Dan Pramuk and Carol Tkach. The decorations are the results of one month’s labor. 24 The plaudits and honors, trophies and awards from oratorical and musical, athletic and scholastic competitions have been presented and received. A sigh of relief, and well rewarded by but weary Seniors pause a moment and reflect on their final fling at fun as young men and women, as Clarkites, but most of all as seniors. The class of 1963 has been notorious for its liberal light-heartedness, but recognized for its boundless potential and lauded for its achievements. It has its brains and brawn, and odds and ends, but also a rare form of individuality. This individuality is the classes’ greatest achievement. Our seniors have fortified those extras that are part of every graduating class. Of course a certain amount of protocol was retained, the traditional senior banquet and graduation announcements. The class song compliments the collegiate features of graduation. Even without the extras, our seniors remain as graduated as ever. .. . Turns Class Rings Michelle Kampo writes out the order for the name-cards Bill Kussy has chosen. Part of the profit from the name- cards is donated to the Senior Class. Senior Pat Schrage measures Ron Burk’s head, arms, shoulders, and height to insure a perfect fit in his gradua¬ tion cap and gown to be worn June 13. rr Studying in the library or at home, typing up a theme or a term paper, taking a quiz or a final exam . . . whichever it may be, one can be assured someone at Clark is doing it. At the conclusion of each school day every Clarkite has learned a little more. Whether it was as small as one vocabulary word in Spanish or more complex as a physics problem, he now has gone that much further in reaching his academic goal. ACADEMICS Liehe Named Valedictorian and Recipient Cliff Liehe received the Bausch and Lomb Sci¬ ence Award for maintaining the highest grade aver¬ age in high school science courses. Cliff was eligible to compete for a scholarship to the University of Rochester in New York. The recipient of the Daughters of the American Revolution Award was Barbara Hered. After being selected by the seniors and the faculty, Barbara took a three-hour test on citizenship and government. Eight senior boys were selected to attend meet¬ ings of the Hammond Rotary Club. The Junior Rotarians, as the boys were called, were chosen on the basis of their grades and participation in activ¬ ities. Each boy attended the weekly meetings for a month. Meeting community leaders and hearing discussions on current problems served to widen the boys’ interests. Junior Rotarians then contributed the acquired knowledge to the whole school. JUNIOR ROTARIANS—BOTTOM ROW: C. Liehe, M. Levin; SECOND ROW: M. Trombley, B. Ference; THIRD ROW: L. King, G. Gardner; FOURTH ROW: R. Burk, T. Allison. Cliff Liehe was the recipient of the Bausch-Lomb Award for 1963 for his academic achievement in the science field. Clark’s Daughters of the American Revolution Award was received by senior Barbara Hered. of Bausch-Lomb Award Clifford Liehe, with a near perfect high school academic record, captured the Valedictorian honors in his class, and Barbara Hered captured the Salu- tatorian honor. Gary Gardner and Tom Allison ranked number three and four, respectively. Gary Gardner rose from the ranks of the senior class, and became a National Merit Scholarship finalist. Thousands of students across the country competed for this high honor. The outstanding homemaker of 1962-63 was sen¬ ior Pat Mores, who received the Betty Crocker Homemaker Award for her outstanding perform¬ ance on a test taken in December. The Elizabeth Lyle Memorial Award was won by Junior Tom Snider. Awarded each year to the out¬ standing biology student, this award is in memory of one of Clark’s past biology teachers. Ranking two and one academically for the class of ’63 are Barbara Hered and Cliff Liehe, respectively. LEFT—Junior Tom Snider was presented the Elizabeth Lyle Memorial Award for his outstanding work and interest in the field of biology. MIDDLE—Senior Gary Gardner ranked as the only finalist from Clark in the National Merit Scholarship competition this year. RIGHT—Senior Pat Mores was chosen as the Bettv Crocker Future Homemaker of the Year. Pat won this title by making the highest score of all the girls at Clark who took a special test on home economics. 29 Science Courses Play Important Part in Freshmen Sandra Hanusan, Joan Norrington, and Carol Bellile watch their fellow biologist Lynn Dostatni take her chances with a stuffed baby alligator. By the end of the year the girls found this was far from hardest projects. The science courses at Clark provide a vital store of knowledge. Health, biology, physics, and chemistry explore the aspects of the physical world and its phenomenon. Man, the world’s most curious phenomenon, is analyzed in Health I. This one- semester course describes man’s physiology accord¬ ing to his nine body systems. Films illustrate and supplement the chapters in the text. Biology students realize that every living thing has certain distinctive characteristics. Learning these characteristics is a year-long project involving microscopes, leaf collections, and dissections. By studying and researching their topic the students are assured they will benefit. Physics is the fundamental science because it in¬ volves matter and energy— ' two basic things in everyday life. Through experiments and demon¬ strations, students can see the subject’s usefulness. Chemistry deals with the materials of which the earth is made. Students learn the properties, uses, and discoveries of the various elements. George, the anemic demonstration skeleton, is carefully examined by Cecelia Brizina and Fred Morganthaler in one of Mr. Daugherty’s health classes. Curriculum of Students Physics students Buzz Madsen, Ron Leckrone, Wally Steliga, and Wayne Michalak get charged up with an induction coil. Senior, Marc Levin and other industrious chemistry students diligently study in preparation for classroom discussion. During lab period, Marc carefully adds an unknown sub¬ stance to C 2 H r ‘(C 1, H 33 C0 2 ) :i to see what happens. Evidently William Jorkon and Dennis Hornsby conduct one of the many physics experiments given throughout the year. This par¬ ticular demonstration concerns tne Laws of Pressure. nothing drastic occurred, for Marc was still alive to discuss the experiment later with fellow would-be scientist Dan Pramuk. Beginning Algebra to Juniors Jim Antilla and Bob Kukta use a “giant size” slide rule to solve a difficult cube root problem in Mr. Watkins’ advanced algebra class. Solid Geometry Pursued in Math Courses The student who is ambitious enough to pursue college preparatory mathematics for four years gains a wide scope of knowledge. The curriculum in Clark’s math departments consists of beginning and advanced algebra, solid geometry, analytical geometry, and trigonometry. Freshman algebra introduces the theory of equa¬ tions. Advanced algebra surveys the complete num¬ ber system. Juniors learn to work with imaginary as well as real numbers. The slide rule, permuta¬ tions, and probability are essential parts of the curriculum, as it is taught at Clark. In plane geometry, sophomores construct geomet¬ ric figures with compasses and straightedges. The Pythagorean Theorem serves as the basis for solv¬ ing similar and congruent triangles. The geometry course touches on loci of points, a difficult topic usually left for analytical geometry. A special math course for seniors covers trig¬ onometry, solid geometry and analytical geometry. This fourth-year course climaxes the math curri¬ culum with a study of Mollweide’s Theorem. Inquisitive, wondering eyes turn as a difficult problem is explained in one of Miss Booth’s geometry classes. Demon¬ strating at the board, an essential part of classwork in geometry, is capably done by Nancy Cervone. 33 Ideas Expressed through Writing, Reading, Jack Brodowski, David Winner, and Jack Greenberg listen as Ward Weinberg debates the proposition of a Common Market for the Western Hemisphere. Communication is the manner in which man makes his ideas known to others. To get along in the modern world, one must be able to express himself accurately and concisely. Literature, com¬ position, speech, and debate classes enable students to develop communication skills. In literature and composition classes pupils learn how to set their ideas on paper. They study the writing of great writers and study the points which contribute to good writing. Speech students learn the basic principles of oration. They also study Parliamentary Procedure and debate technique. Debaters, under Mr. Erickson’s guidance explor¬ ed the area of free trade and built arguments on both sides of the question. Debaters acquired speak¬ ing prowess and the ability to think clearly. Ron Novak delivers his rebuttal as his colleague, Janet Norrington collects additional information and quotes. De¬ bating in speech class helps the students in speech delivery. 34 and Speaking Miss McCampbell discusses the adventures of early American Miss Carol Krupa, teacher of remedial reading, folk heroes with Sharon Labus and Leonard Marcisz. discusses some passages with Dorothy Priesol. Diligent sophomore students in Mr. Meadow’s English class develop a basis for their future themes through clear, concise sentence structure. In later weeks they will concentrate their efforts toward a major task—that of a research paper. 35 Keeping pace with the growing need for adept¬ ness in foreign communication, the Clark language arts department has made repeated progress these past several years. Supplementing the foreign languages of Latin, German, and Spanish is an elementary French course. This conversational language, as well as German and Spanish has created an influx of enter¬ prising students enrolling in the language arts. The Latin language still remains the most popular. These young Romans resounding their “amo, amore, amove”, complete the enrollment of 270 in the language department. Such precedented interest in foreign language warrants some necessity in teaching techniques and facilities. Clark’s long awaited language laboratory will debut in 1963-64. The realization of the lab will coincide with the predicted foreign language enrollment peak of 1963. This supplement to langu¬ age instruction augments a vast repertoire of prec¬ edented study aids. The graphic audio visual ser¬ vices in conjunction with active participation in the revived aspects of the language through sem¬ inars, lectures, and clubs proves to be the ultimate concept in modern language instruction. Latin students Mary Wescott and Jack Greenberg present a puppet show for a special project. Grasps Student Interest Providing a break in the strenuous routine of Latin class is a friendly Latin game of Scrabble. TOP—Students of Latin combine fun with learning by trans¬ lating a crossword puzzle into Latin. This increases their knowledge of the practical application of Latin words and phrases. MIDDLE—Susan Greenberg points out Berlin, the center of the development of German culture to her fellow- classmates. Studying the background of the language is also a part of a language class. BOTTOM—Spanish students read over daily translations of stories in class to become fluent in their chosen “second language”. 37 Social Sciences Stress Taxes and Cuba The social studies department pursues its cur¬ riculum by inductive reasoning. In Geography I and II, freshmen receive a general impression of the earth’s characteristics. Knowledge of climates, topography, and natural resources forms a basis for further study in the social sciences. Sophomores learn about the progress of man from the Stone Age to the present. World history scans the story of man’s adaptation to the earth. United States history relates man’s progress in America. Political, social, economic, and religious trends from the colonization period to the founda¬ tion of the United Nations are studied in detail. Government offers seniors explanations of the theories behind democracy, socialism, and capital¬ ism. Students learn why man in his particular en¬ vironment formed a certain governmental system. With the study of economics, the science of social studies, the department completes its journey from the general to the specific. As the students progress they delve deeper into specific areas of study. By their last two years, students can form personal conclusions about man’s relation to the world. Mr. Mybeck explains the development of the United States to history student, Bonnie Spanier. Mr. Charlet makes use of an opaque projector as an aid in the teaching of United States history to one of his classes. Cliff Liehe and Jim Stasny concentrate on an educational television program during one of their economics classes. Challenge Old Ideas 39 Seven Teachers Give Clark the Business; In preparing themselves for the future. Seniors apply themselves in Miss Coughlan’s advanced bookkeeping. Joe Nanista takes advantage of the adding machine, while others use worksheets. Joyce Pietrzak and Sharon Gootee use an adding machine to complete their assignment in business machines class. At one time or another, students at Clark venture into a commercial subject. Typing is the most popu¬ lar, and practical for use in other subjects. Short¬ hand, advanced typing, and transcription unite to form a firm stenographical career. For those who wish insight with the legal aspects of business, a business law course might prove inter¬ esting. On everyday situations, consumer problems gives ideas on how to interpret and benefit from them. Consumer’s education explains how to trans¬ late advertising claims along with the selection of goods and budgeting of the income. Business machines enlightens one in the use of machines through practical experience. Bookkeep¬ ing prepares students for further study in the field of accounting. Finally, general business offers the student a glimpse of now business affects his life. 40 Influence Many Lives Shorthand tests the skill and ability of attentive, speed¬ conscious advanced students. Miss Coughlan gives rapid dic¬ tation to increase the proficiency of the shorthand students. Speed and accuracy are the main objectives in advanced typing. Warm-up drills help accomplish this goal. Bill Kussy explains a problem to his classmates in consumer problems class. In this class students familiarize themselves with problems which will face them in their future lives. In a completely modernized kitchen, which Clark received this year, future home¬ makers Karen Vasilko and Nancy Wosczcynski follow a recipe closely. Creative Thought Varies the Fine Arts Sandy Fauth, Liz Oxford, Bob Seth, and Virginia Taylor dis¬ cuss techniques in Miss Morrison’s advanced art class. The re-modeled cooking room offered an ex¬ cellent opportunity for prospective homemakers to learn the workings of an efficient kitchen. In cook¬ ing courses students learned the rudiments of cooking, etiquette, and table setting. Sewing classes offered insight into clothesmak- ing. Girls studied fabric, styling, and the mechanics of sewing. Art students developed their imaginations and artistic skills while using the equipment in the art room. During art class, each student was allowed to follow his natural creative inclinations. While many students preferred drawing and painting, some made pottery and fired it in the kiln. Wood-working artists learned the use of the many tools in the shop. Boys learned how to use tools and how to construct items out of wood. Mechanical drawing acquainted students with the basic principles of the construction and design of buildings. Boys learned how to prepare neat and ac¬ curate blue-prints. 42 Wayne Chovan carefully uses a T-square and triangle to com¬ plete a drawing in Mr. Williams’ mechanical drawing cla;s. Future designers practice their skills on a patient model, Claudia Carpenter. A few more pins and it will be hemmed. Junior Mike Gerenda carefully cuts out a part for his proj¬ ect in Mr. Hein’s shop class. He is using one of many mod¬ ern power tools available to members of the class. Hearing speakers for SAC or IBM, taking trips to IIT or Springfield, practicing for a band concert or a solo contest . . . whichever it may be, one can be assured someone at Clark is doing it. By taking part in extracurricular activities Clark students broaden their scope of interests. Clarkites are given an opportunity to show leadership. While in these clubs they strive to reach their peak as an individual. ACTIVITIES Honorary Societies Symbolize the Hard Work NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY—FRONT ROW: S- Green- bsrg, B. Hered, M. Toops, L.

The secondary schools, nationwide, scholastic, honorary group, comparable to the collegiate Phi Beta Kappa, is the National Honor Society. Ad¬ mission requires that the entering student be in the upper third of his class, and be of substantial moral and scholastic character. The eligible Juniors and Seniors pledge themselves to infinite enthusiasm for scholarship, promotion of leadership, rendition of service, and development of character. To these ends, the Honor Society is dedicated; and sponsored by Miss Veva McAtee, these goals are fostered in each of its faculty-elected members. To honor the scholastically adequate but journal¬ istically inclined student, Clark High School has established its chapter of the Quill and Scroll. Membership is achieved by any student whose con¬ tributions to the POWDER HORN or PIONEER NEWS have showed initiative and development in the field of journalism. 46 of Their Members N.F.L.—FRONT ROW: J.

The National Forensic League is an honorary society for experienced speakers. Members of N.F.L. can earn the four degrees of merit, honor, excel¬ lence, and distinction by accumulating points. Points are awarded for participation in debate tournaments and speech meets. Activities included in the League’s program are debating, oratory, extemporaneous speaking, poetry and dramatic reading, radio announcing, and discussion. This year’s debate topics concerned the United States’ trade relations with the free world. Mr. Arthur Erickson sponsors this group. National Thespian Troup 1769 is one of the thousands of secondary-school acting guilds in the United States. Membership is awarded to talented participants in all areas of stage production. Dan Pramuk, the president of the organization, con¬ ducted the monthly meetings. In the spring, the Thespians sponsored the all-school musical Girl Crazy. Miss Jeani Knapp was in charge.

As a group representative of each Clarkite, the Council is under the sponsorship of Mr. Buell. The officers, a product of a newly adapted election procedure, have successfully generated a general enthusiasm so necessary for an effective administration. A vital organ of the administration is the Council cabinet. It has been said that the prominence of this body lies in the names of its members. This reasoning proved erroneous as the cabinet has evidenced itself a powerful and con¬ structive cog in the wheel of student government. The representatives, the officers, and the cabinet have molded to form that necessary link between the student body and the faculty. This link has achieved such privileges and serv¬ ices as the installation of vending machines, provi¬ sion for student directories, sponsorship of the ma¬ gazine drive, and renovation of the intramural sports program. Such proposals have resounded on the Council floor, evolving to fit the best interest and enjoyment of all. Every two weeks, two student council members are selected to put up and take down the American flag.

With the new gym class pro¬ gram, the Girls’ Choruses were able to meet three times a week instead of only two times a week. For the second semester, a fifth hour Girls’ Choir was formed. The Madrigal Group was smaller and more selective this year. Christmas caroling and perform¬ ing for community organizations were two of the many activities on this groups agenda. In February the Madrigals traveled to compete in the Gary Lew Wallace district ensemble contest. The new Concert Choir consisted of students selected from all the other vocal music organizations in the department. In the Winter Concert this group sang selections from Handel’s Messiah. Fea¬ tured soloists in the concert were Roscoe Grigson, Ron Burk, and Mary Jane Schwab. During the Christmas season the A Capella Choir, Concert Choir, Madrigal Group, and Junior High choruses presented a Christmas assembly for the entire student body. The Vocal Music Depart¬ ment enjoyed a good year under the new director. CONCERT CHOIR—FRONT ROW: K. Hrasch, M. Treschak, M. Kenes, S. Amundson, C. To- karz, D. Sallay, W. Wood, H. Strand, R.

Miss Thelma Wilcox, the orchestra director, Miss Jeani Knapp, the drama coach, and many parents cooperated in creating the outfits. The girls’ ensembles consisted of floor length, black taffeta skirts, white blouses, and bright red cum- berbunds. The boys wore black slacks, white shirts, and red cumberbunds. In the Winter Concert the orchestra made its first striking appearance wear¬ ing their new outfits. The group made tremendous progress this year. It accompanied the Concert Choir in the Messiah for the Winter Concert. The orchestra’s repetoire consisted of such numbers as “Sine Nomine” by Ralph V. Williams, “The Great Gate of Kiev” by Moussorgsky, and “Prelude and Fugue” by Handel. The concert in March and the solo contest in Feb¬ ruary gave students great opportunities to develop their musicianship. ORCHESTRA—FRONT ROW: K. Holman, L. Marcisz, N. Cervone, L. Field, M.

Selections included “Waggery for Woodwinds,” which featured the clarinet section, and Music from “West Side Story.” After school had started, the band presented many programs of precision marching at home football games. The band also participated in parades, two concerts, solo and ensemble contests, pep rallies, and the Hammond Music Festival. The pep band, a small ensemble composed mainly of upper-class musicians, performed at pep rallies and all home basketball games. It assisted the cheerleaders and helped boost school spirit and team morale with its peppy music. At the Winter Concert in January, the band played “Bolero” by Ravel, “Finlandia” by Sibelius, and “Triumphal March” from the movie Quo Vadis. At the Spring Concert, Mr. Snider presented the traditional band keys to all the graduating members of the band. A special gold key was given to the senior, whom the band members had voted the most valuable player. MAJORETTES—FRONT ROW: K. Pajak, S. Gootee, L. Parker. SECOND ROW: M. Cison, M. A. Kokot.

Modern Dance Crows; Booster Club Stuns In the spring the modem dancers combined with other sectors of the girls’ physical education depart¬ ment in staging a performance. Techniques of ex¬ ercising, basic movements, and styles of modern dancing were demonstrated. The concentration of the group this year was on the inspiration received from music. Modern danc¬ ing requires a sense of rhythm, limber movements, and a flowing style. The group hopes to gradually improve its concepts of modern dancing through strenuous practicing. Modern dance membership was open to all high school girls. New members were chosen on the basis of their poise, coordination, cooperation, initiative, and regularity of attendance. The group met for 90 minutes on Tuesday nights. Before working with music, the girls limbered up with exercises. This year new exercises were added to challenge the girls’ endurance. The major part of each rehearsal was spent in creating original dances. By the end of the year, the student body could witness the achievements of the group. Sharon Gabbert, a member of the Modern Dance group, demonstrates her dancing skill and agility. Sounds of “Mighty Proud of It, G. R. C.” and “Pioneers, Pioneers, Go! Go!” could be heard echo¬ ing from the popular Booster Club. A valuable asset to the varsity cheerleaders, the Booster Club was one of the largest and most widely supported organ¬ izations. To instill a sense of sportsmanship in the avid Clark fans was the prime objective of the “Boosters.” With enthusiastic supervision of Miss Jeani Knapp, the “Boosters” strive for a rousing Clark cheering section. Countless projects have been designed to boost the morale of the Clark ath¬ letic teams and send them on to victory. The sale of the ever popular booster button was the major source of revenue for the club. This but¬ ton was proudly worn in the blue-white cheering section, which was lauded at home games as well as games away. The sponsorship of booster caravans to out of town games, a renovated cheering bloc, and a proposed card section all enhanced the Clark cheer¬ ing section making it the essence of sportsmanship.

Swenson, “Stage Crew members must never be seen or heard.” This requirement was preached during the first activity period of each month by Miss Jeani Knapp, the group’s sponsor. For the first time in years, the membership of Stage Crew was limited. Ten theatrical-minded, dependable students con¬ stitute the organization. These individuals pulled curtains, operated lights, and moved scenery for all assemblies, concerts, and plays. Experienced mem¬ bers were in charge of make-up for plays. Operating the new speaker system in the auditorium greatly enhanced the technical ability of the group. Stage Crew also constructed the float for the Homecoming Queen and her court. This year the paper-flower float was composed of five coronets and bore the slogan, “Midas well face it; we’ve got the touch down!” The entry won second place. Fun and excitement characterized only a segment of the crew’s activities. Sweeping the stage and cleaning the prop room were responsibilities rarely considered glamorous. Thus, the unofficial motto of the group is “Stage Crew will never die, but just perspire away.” Wardrobe mistresses Mary Ann Poracky and Marge Wisniew¬ ski check over some costumes to be used in the next play. Handle Many Chores Special lighting effects are the specialty of Joel Kaplan. He is seen here making last minute adjustments on one of the large spotlights necessary in a theatrical production. Roger Wetnight is shown as he carefully replaces one of the overhead lights backstage in the auditorium. As a member of the stage crew, senior Mark Moynihan is often called upon to assist during plays and assemblies. Opening and closing the curtain is just one of the jobs he may be asked to perform. 59 Y-Teens Adopt Little Sisters; Hi-Y Pop Y-Teens is the high school branch of the Young Women’s Christian Association. Its goals as a serv¬ ice group are to promote friendship between girls of all races and religions throughout the world. The Clark Y-Teens, sponsored by Miss Wilcox, were quite active. Early in the year, each member chose a little sister at the East Chicago Carmelite Orphanage for Girls. Each Y-Teen visited her sister, wrote to her, and most important, remembered her birthday. A panel discussion sponsored by the Y- Teens gave Jim Stasny, Tom Allison, Buck Makis, Greg Terranova, and A1 Berger a chance to com¬ ment on the opposite sex. They frankly aired their opinions on girls, their dress, conduct, and hair styles. They also answered the Y-Teens’ questions. Y-Teens raised money for their activities by sel¬ ling potato chips in March and yearbook covers in the spring. The money sent two girls to the state¬ wide Summer Y -Teens Conference at Lake Wawasee, Indiana. Y-Teens contributed to the Booster Club drive to improve the cheering section, and to the Hayward Memorial Fund. Miss Wilcox’s room, these Y-Teeners make plans for one of the many Y-Teen’s projects—selling potato chips. FROSH-SOPH Y-TEENS OFFICERS—FRONT ROW: L. Ha- lik, K. Fitzpatrick. SECOND ROW: C.

This year the Hi-Y was redivided and a fresh¬ man club, sponsored by Mr. Wilkinson, was formed for the first time. In addition, there is a sophmore, junior, and senior club sponsored by Mr. Watkins. The sophomore, junior, senior Hi-Y donated money from two paper drives, pop sales, and coat check at school dances to the world service project. Another project of the sophomore, junior, senior Hi-Y was the series of daily morning religious serv¬ ices which were held the week before Easter. For these services, speakers were obtained from various churches in the surrounding area. An activity in its second year for Hi-Y is the an¬ nual Hi-Y city basketball tournament. This year the Clark club sponsored this activity. The tourna¬ ment was held in the Clark gym and six teams from three of the Hammond high schools partici¬ pated in the sometimes wild competition.

Louise Clark and Jim Smolar are preparing Clark’s boxes for shipment. George Rogers Clark’s Red Cross, which was formerly called the Junior Red Cross, completed several major projects this year. The organization sent a large gift chest filled with educational and recreational articles to a high school overseas. Indi¬ viduals in foreign countries received special gift boxes during the holiday season. The third project consisted of sending gifts and knickknacks to Beatty Memorial Hospital and a local veterans’ hospital. The homerooms played an essential role in sup¬ plying canned food and warm clothing for the group to distribute. Thirteen boxes of this food and cloth¬ ing were given to underprivileged children in the Calumet Region. The Red Cross also donated two Christmas gifts to the Good Cheer Project. In the spring, Janet Duncan and Louise Clark organized a special charity project. The results of this humanitarian effort were quite successful. The Veterans’ Project, under the leadership of John Buchner and Leonard Shifflett, also verified the group’s slogan, “We bel ieve in service for others.” LATIN CLUB—FRONT ROW: D. Mihalo, T. Matei, B.

Romans Auction Off Members to Bidders Latin Club activities include freshman initiation, banquet and Saturnalia preparation, and the infamous Olympic Games. “Io Saturnalia!” This greeting to Latin students is as common as “Merry Christmas” is to us. It means hail Saturn. He was the god which the Rom¬ ans honored in December. During this time of the year the Latin Club held a Saturnalia party at which games of original Roman origin are played. Another activity of the club was the slave auc¬ tion. At this auction, freshman members were put up for sale to the highest bidder. These freshmen must list their attributes and flaws to enable the bidders to pick the one best-suited for the need. The money from this auction was used as the club’s chief source of income. Along with these two events, the monthly meet¬ ings provided a time for members to better acquaint themselves with Ancient Rome’s culture. Under the able leadership of sponsor, Mrs. Miller, the Ger¬ man Club members participated in many activities. Activities of the club included having a Christmas party and singing. German Club, sponsored by Mrs. R. Miller meets every third Wednesday during Activity Period. Members of the German Club strive for greater un¬ derstanding of the Germans and their language. At a Christmas party for all German I and II students, the German Club presented the play, “Die Frohlichsten Weihnachten.” Other activities in¬ cluded making bookmarks with famous German and American sayings on them, singing German songs, playing games in German, and learning about the history of Germany. The members of the German Club realized the importance of talking a language frequently while mastering it. The German Club also aided the lan¬ guage department by buying new language records.

Their theme was “We’re no fan of Tech’s,” and effort was put forth by all. Presiding over their monthly meetings was Jan Michalak, president. Assisting her in duties were Barbara Vaughan, vice-president; Tim Simko, secre¬ tary; and Bob Kovacich, treasurer. Mrs. Judith Stoelting is club sponsor. At the meetings, Spanish customs and ways of life are introduced, explained, and discussed. They also venture into the world of Spanish music, sing¬ ing it to better acquaint themselves with the use of the Spanish language. Spanish Club members gather around Mrs. Stoelting as she strums a gay Spanish tune for them to dance. Singing and dancing are a couple of the favorite club activities. SPANISH CLUB—FRONT ROW: J.

The French Club enables students of French to delve deeply into the language and customs of France. The French Club adds to the knowledge of the students in their daily French classes. During the club meetings, members of the French Club sang many songs like Allouette and Sur Le Pont d’Avignon. Students also constructed book¬ marks with French proverbs on them. To earn money, the French Club sponsored a raffle in Feb¬ ruary. Prizes included a portable phonograph, stuf¬ fed animal, and a free night of bowling. The last activity of the French Club was a Gallic dance. Participating in one of the many activities of the French Club are these members studying French customs, Cheri Ihnat, Kathy Wild, and Mike Janek. In the first year of organization, the club did many things. FRENCH CLUR—FRONT ROW: R. Ihnat, M. Janek, C. Gaughan, D. Etter, C. Berland, L. Bazarko, M. Jamrose, Bazarko, K. Wild, L. Ogren, J.

This year the group’s agenda included a trip to Chicago to see a play, a visit to the Chicago Public Library, and a tour of the Chica¬ go Historical Society. A gala Christmas party was the height of the year’s activities. Students who are interested in creative writing had an opporunity to share their original work and receive assistance in the fine points of style and grammar. Practicing oral interpretations was an¬ other project of the group. By means of a tape re¬ corder, these interpretations were reviewed and critically analyzed. Students studied the inflections of their voices in order to improve pronunciation. The Literary Club is sponsored by Miss Carolyn Lambert, a high school English teacher. Twenty- three students interested in the humanities compose the organization. Barbara Reid and Paul Nickel were president and secretary-treasurer, respectively. Some of the members of the Literary Club gather around Miss Lambert’s newly installed book shelf. The shelf is widely used by the club members for their research. LITERARY CLUB—FRONT ROW: J.

The club gave the boys a better under¬ standing of the use of their cameras, and introduc¬ ing new methods to aid in better picture taking. Their activity never ceased. Whether it was a picture to take for the Powder Horn, or a special picture for an edition of the Pioneer News, the boys, headed by chief photographer Brant Olds, were snapping the shutter. Gym coaches often requested pictures of the outstanding athletes, while the boys automatically cover the varsity competition. Clubs may request their service to take pictures at any special functions or events. The Dark Room, in 223, served as the hive of their activity. Here the boys spent hours developing their own pictures. They could enlarge a print ten times, or make it half as big. They made one pic¬ ture from two prints by using cutouts. With the addition of a new print dryer, the club had a more efficient way of producing better prints faster. Clark shutterbugs now have a medium to improve and share their hobby. Juniors, Stanley Kalwinski and Terry Tomko, members of Clark’s snappy Photography Club prepare to dry some glossy prints in the dryer. These prints are to be used in the year¬ book.

The club, under the direction of Mr. Paul Wilkinson, also obtained a new public a ddress system for the auditorium and a new amplifier for the gym. The A. V. 0. members helped teachers supplement class¬ room work by the use of movie, slide, and filmstrip projectors. Other A. V. 0. equipment includes tape recorders, opaque projectors, and microphones. A. V. 0. boys ran the G. R. C. public address system and provided music for the dances held during the school year in the gym. The sixty members of the club were led by Dan Dziadosz, president; Wayne Chovan, vice-president; Leszek Potapowicz, secretary; and Ron Eberle, treasurer. Recreational activities of the club includ¬ ed a basketball party during Christmas vacation and softball games during the spring meetings. The club obtained its revenue from the fruit machine in the lunch room. A. V. O. meetings were held during Wednesday’s activity period.

The purpose of Nurses’ Club was to acquaint students with medical institutions. Students were given interviews to de¬ termine whether or not they were qualified to enter a career of nursing. Personality and intelligence were prime factors in determining a girl’s aptitude. This year the club had 155 members. Because of this increased membership, Mrs. Snider, the English teacher, was appointed co-sponsor. Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Snider selected the year’s program and tried to channel the girls into the right career. During the first semester the meetings featured films on the history of nursing and a speaker from the Lake County Cancer Society. During the Thanksgiving holidays, 35 girls visited a local hospi¬ tal. The program for the second semester included a film on Project Hope, and speakers from the Lake County Heart Association, Wesley Memorial Hospi¬ tal, the Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County, and the Hammond Health Department. The group purchased the series of films about the history of nursing and a tooth-and-brush model for health instructions. Hosts SAC Speaker The Forum Club is the newest activity at Clark. Juniors and seniors, under the guidance of Mr. Heslin and Mr. Charlet, explore social studies. The objectives of the Forum Club are to interest and to inform students about current affairs. Activities of the Forum Club include lectures, movies, and field trips. A representative of the Strategic Air Command was engaged to present a lecture and to show a movie dealing with air de¬ fense. A member of the Peace Corps explained the foreign policy of the New Frontier. A tour conduct¬ ed by the Calumet Harbor Authority informed stu¬ dents about the assets of the Calumet area. The largest venture was a trip to Springfield, Illinois. Students explored Lincoln’s home and tomb and the Illinois State Capitol Building. Forum Club president, Marty Kessler conducts a monthly meeting. An interesting program is given monthly for its members. Hered, M. Kessler, K. Kurasz. SECOND ROW: M. Kenes, M. Kokot, B. Yackish, J.

The Future Teachers of America Club, sponsored by Miss McCampbell, encourages students to enter the teaching profession. At the monthly meetings, speakers informed students about college life and job opportunities. Each student teacher at Clark was allotted one meeting to express his opinions about teaching. Some members of F.T.A. assisted teaching in the elementary grades. F. T. A. members served refreshments at P.T.A. meetings and operate check rooms at various school activities. At the end of each year the seniors are rewarded for their efforts at an honor banquet. The Future Secretaries Club is organized for the girls preparing for secretarial careers. Through the many club activities the girls achieve a more complete understanding of the responsibilities they will hold as secretaries of tomorrow. During the meetings held every fourth Wednes¬ day, speakers lectured the girls about the business world. Representatives from industry demonstrated machinery, stressed efficiency, good grooming and cooperation. Alumnae who had entered the business world returned to Clark and informed the girls about job opportunities. 72 LIBRARY CLUB—FRONT ROW: D. Dennington, D. Brown, D. Dickey, E. Shade. THIRD ROW: N.

Some of the other interesting activities included decorat¬ ing the library’s Christmas tree, planning a Christ¬ mas party, conducting a fund-raising drive, enjoy¬ ing the annual picnic, and traveling to the John Crerar Library at the Illinois Institute of Tech¬ nology in Chicago. All members must earn above-average grades and show the willingness to work hard. Devoting hours each day to the care of books and magazines was the major responsibility of a Library Club member. Biology Club, under the leadership of Mr. Edward Powell, consisted of thirty scientific-minded Clark- ites. Their activities included trips to the Indiana Dunes State Park, near Chesterton, and Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo. In these excursions the local fauna and flora were extensively analyzed. Members were expected to keep up with modern scientific advances by read¬ ing and conducting experimental research. Soil tests and respiration tests greatly increased the scientific knowledge of the students. BIOLOGY CLUB—FRONT ROW: C. Dvorscak, C. Krenz, L. Harrier, B. Kelley, C. Bellile. SECOND ROW: S.

Pioneer News Completes Thirtieth Year; As one passed the school late on a Thursday night, he may see a light from room 223. It was not the janitors cleaning up or even prowlers, but the alert, wide-awake staff of the Pioneer News. Since the service of the P.N. must continue in spite of torn stencils or late deadlines, often these budding young journalists were late in getting through. To produce the Pioneer Neivs much thought, plan¬ ning, and man power were needed. The 1962-1963 Pioneer Neivs was again noted by special editions. These were the opening edition. Homecoming, and Christmas editions. There were also 31 other fine issues in this the Pioneer News’ thirtieth year of publication. A new innovation of this year’s paper was the Christmas coloring book. This was prepared as a special project in Mrs. Gates’ senior composition class. These same classes also wrote poetry for the Christmas edition. Sponsor, Mr. George Muir gave much-needed advice to the staff and editor, Gary Gardner com¬ bined to give G.R.C. a sterling example of top-notch journalism. Feature Editor Mary Steliga and Sports Editor Ron Burk of the Pioneer News confer on their weekly assignments. Gardner Leads Staff P.N. typists are S. Gabbert, J. Dybel, J. Vater and V. Murzyn.

SECOND—C. Liehe, J. Stasny, Sports; M. Trombley, Faculty. Accurately documenting the school year 1962- 1963 was the prime objective of the Powder Horn staff. Work started in the spring of 1962 when editor Jean Tolchinsky chose her staff and started preparing them for their jobs. During the summer at the Indiana High School Journalism Institute, the yearbook theme was decided on and the dummy was prepared. In August senior portraits were snapped at the Dressier Studio. After school had started, the different com¬ mittees swung into action. Taking pictures, writing, soliciting adds, holding subscription drives, and typ¬ ing composed the major work. Numerous consulta¬ tions between Mr. Muir and staff members smooth¬ ed out the endless difficulties. Everyone hurried to meet the dreaded deadlines. Over a year of planning and hard work produced the 1963 Powder Horn. At the Senior Banquet and the Signature Swing in June, the anxious students received their long-awaited yearbooks. 76 Don ' t You Think So?

Their job was a never ending one. 79 Punting or passing, shooting or dribbling, batting or pitching . . . whichever it may be, one can be assured a Clark athlete has tried it. Through interschool and intraschool competition Clark’s sportsmen build themselves physically and mentally. Fair play and good sportsmanship are the key qualities for which Clarkites strive. By these means they are in the process of reaching their competitive peak of success. SPORTS Tennis Team Takes Third in League Play TENNIS TEAM—FRONT ROW: C. Liehe, C. Wolf, M. Duray, R. Burk, T.

Manage 5-2 Record The Clark tennis team placed third in Western Division competition this year by attaining a record of five wins and two losses. The netmen won their first match 4-1 against East Chicago Washington. In their second match of the season against Hammond Tech, the Pioneers were defeated 1-4. The racketmen went on to win three matches in succession. Horace Mann was de¬ feated by Clark 3-2. The Pioneer team then defeat¬ ed Lew Wallace 4-1. Clark was also victorious over Gary Tolleston by the score 4-1. In Clark’s next match the racketmen suffered their second loss of the season. Playing host to Hammond High, the Conference champions, Clark was shutout 0-5. The Pioneers came back to win their last conference match of the season by de¬ feating East Chicago Roosevelt 4-1. During the season two non-conference matches were held with Gary Roosevelt. Only underclass¬ men participated in these matches. Clark won the first match 5-0 and won the second one 3-2. Because of graduation, four lettermen will be lost from this year’s team. They are Ron Burk, Mark Duray, Cliff Liehe, and Mark Trombley. Den Burk, Tom Snider, and Charles Wolf will be re¬ turning lettermen for next year’s team. Willowy Ron Burk puts forth a superior effort in reaching for a high and difficult shot. 83 Inspired Pioneers Weaken Roosevelt Myth Sophomore fullback Paul Miskus is anything but happy as he’s buried by Froebel’s line. Clark lost this one, 20-12. Clark’s 1962 football team fought through a heavy nine game schedule with a final 2-5-2 record. Three disappointing losses, Morton 33-6, Froebel 20- 12, and Tech 18-6, combined with a 32-0 loss to Indiana’s state championship team Hammond High for the Pioneer’s four one-sided defeats. The Pioneer’s greatest moment came in the sec¬ ond ball game of the season. Clark clawed and hustled its way to a 0-0 tie with powerful E. C. Roosevelt. Harnessing the best of their defensive strength, Clark stalled the single-wing power of the Rough Riders. Following Roosevelt, Washington clipped Clark 13-0. Once more the defensive line gave a strong performance. Clark faltered again later in the season as they tied Highland 0-0. Late in the schedule Gavit became the Pioneers first victim 7-0. It was a costly victory however as guard A1 Lewandowski suffered a broken foot. The following week, Clark ended the season with a historic victory over cross-town foe Whiting. When Jack Deshincoe took Bill Gulvas’ pass across the goal line, it marked the first time either team had been shut out two years in succession as Clark won 7-0. The Pioneers closed out their 1962 season on a winning note and looked forward to better times. VARSITY FOOTBALL—FRONT ROW: J. Deshincoe, G. Conn, S. Bendis, A. Lewandowski, J. Stasny, J. Banasak, M.

The Homesteaders gained a 6-6 tie with Ham¬ mond Tech on the merits of Phil Dedinsky’s lone touchdown. Tom Strbjak contributed the winning score as Clark won its next game 7-0 at Whiting’s expense. The rest of the season brought little to applaud. After falling to Gavit 25-0, powerful Hammond High shelled the Homesteaders 42-0. Morton dealt Clark its final defeat in grand fashion as the hap¬ less Homesteaders stumbled to a 45-0 loss. Clark’s youngest Pioneers finished the season 1-1-3 with a determination to resolve this year’s inexperience at next year’s varsity level. Clark’s B-Squad football team, despite a rather poor record, showed the promise important to fu¬ ture success. After an opening 20-0 loss to Morton, they bounced back for a 6-6 tie with Hammond Tech. The consistently improving Settlers lost their next contest to East Chicago Roosevelt 7-0. Clark’s defense dominated the game, however, and forced E. C. R. into numerous and glaring mistakes. The Settlers concluded their 1963 campaign as they dropped a close one 14-12 to Hammond High. The Clark outfit led at the half 12-0 as junior Har¬ vey Crouch rallied the Settler offense for two scores. Clark tired in the second half and yielded a pair of touchdowns and the game to the Wild- kittens. The Settlers’ final record read 0-3-1. 86 Snow, Rain Hinders Cross-Country Team CROSS COUNTRY—FRONT ROW: J. Fech, Manager, K. Hannon, T. Vrabel, P. Regashus, J. Ruf, P. Yancich, T. Milanowski, B.

The harriers started and ended their season on high notes with wins over Highland and Whiting respectively. The harriers could not, however, find the formula to keep up this pace throughout the rest of the sometime snowy and rainy season. Even though the harriers had a losing season, they look forward to a better season next year with Tom Milanowski being the only loss. Although lacking in wins, the harriers did not lack in effort this year. Bob Hatczel brought the Tri-City championship to Clark along with a rec¬ ord-breaking time of 8:06 for the mile and five- eighths course. The harriers also soundly defeated cross-town rival Whiting on three occasions. Because of these achievements and the fact that a veteran team will be returning, the cross-country team hopes for a better showing next year. Bob Hatczel and Tom Milanowski were the “take-charge” men for coach Shields’ cross country team. Both of them are shown here practicing at Forsythe Park. WRESTLING SCORES Clark 8 Lowell 39 Clark 5 T.

Dan Dziadosz and Buck Makis illustrate correct form as they execute the difficult pinning combination. Clark’s grapplers opened their season with a sound defeat at Lowell. This set the pace for a dismal 2-10 season record. The matmen followed their first loss with another one at T. F. South. In this match they garnered only one individual victory and lost. Some improvement was seen when the Clark team lost a close contest to Highland. Clark finally met with success on the wrestling mat when the grapplers trounced Lew Wallace in a sparkling victory. After this feat the Pioneer team dropped six consecutive dual meets. Clark was defeated by Tech, Tolleston, state champion Ham¬ mond High, Valpo, E. C. Roosevelt, and Crown Point. The second victory of the season for the grapplers came when they defeated E. C. Washing¬ ton. The season ended with a loss to Morton. In the Western Division Tourney the Clark team was only able to place seventh. However, Stephen Leland and Danny Galatzer each placed second. The wrestlers fared better at the Sectional Tournament by placing fifth with two individual seconds, a third, and three fourths. Hopes for a more re¬ spectable record next season are based on eight returning lettermen. Bob LaBrant puts the clamp on senior Bill Kussy during pre-match warm up.

Win Two in Sectionals Clark shook off a mid-season slump and finished the 1962-63 basketball season with a record of 13 wins and 10 losses. Two early victories by a total margin of two points depleted the Pioneer scoring punch as they managed only 10 field goals during a 53-28 loss to Sounth Bend Washington. The Pioneers made their first venture of the season in the Western Division a wild success as they slammed highly touted Hammond High, 60-42. A glove-like defense throttled the Wildcats while Clark raced to an early lead in the conference. Prior to the holiday season, the courtmen won 58-54 at E. C. Roosevelt, then fell to Tolleston 69-44 and South Bend St. Joseph’s 63-60. In the Holiday Tourney Clark exhibited top-flight scoring balance and nipped Bishop Noll 63-62. In this con¬ test Whiting defeated the Pioneers 44-43 in the final. The new year saw Clark shelling Lew Wallace, 86-63. Clark then dropped three games in a row, losing 54-49 to Whit ing, 61-47 to Washington, and 75-63 to Valpo. Later in the season the Pioneers laid Tech and Horace Mann to rest by wide margins. After whipping Gavit 73-42, Morton and Griffith stopped Clark in successive outings. Emerson and Froebel breathed their last as the Pioneers ended their season with two decisive victories. For the third time in as many years, Clark won their way to the semi-finals of the Sectional but dropped the afternoon contest. With the sectionals behind them, Clark bases next season’s hopes on a full complement of lettermen at all positions.

B-Team, Frosh Cain Victories over Whiting This year the Freshman team posted a 3-12 rec¬ ord. The first five games of the season were lost to Valparaiso, Morton, T. F. North, E. C. Roosevelt, and Hammond High respectively. The Homesteaders gained their first victory over Morton, 41-39. They were then defeated by Tech, Whiting, Gavit, and E. C. Washington, but they won against Calumet Township, 39-38. In the city tournament the Frosh were eliminated by Gavit, 53-33. They were then again defeated by E. C. Roosevelt, 46-44. In their second game with Whiting the Frosh reversed the score of their first encounter and won 30-28. They ended the season with a 72-45 loss to T. F. North. The B-Squad team started its season poorly by losing to South Bend Riley, South Bend Washing¬ ton, Hammond High, E. C. Roosevelt, Tolleston, and South Bend St. Joseph respectively. In the Holiday Tourney at Tech the Settlers first defeated Whiting and then E. C. Roosevelt, but finally lost to Tech. After starting the new year with wins over Lew Wallace, 50-26, and Whiting, 39-36, the Settlers were defeated by E. C. Washington, Valpo, Tech, and Gavit. They came back to gain a victory over Morton with a score of 52-48. In the Michigan City Tourney the B-Squad lost out to Michigan City, 43-35, and South Bend St. Joseph, 39-37, giving them a 5-13 record for the 1962-63 basketball season.

Den Burk (top) and Jim Eberle (bottom) improve their techniques as their teammates watch their attempts. Clark’s golf team, coached by Mr. Ray Buell, ended its season with a conference record of 5 wins and 11 losses. This record earned the turfmen the sixth place spot in the Western Division. In conference play, the turfmen were victorious over Horace Mann, Gary Emerson, and Hammond Tech. The Pioneers were victorious over E. C. Roosevelt twice during the season. Highlighting the season play were two tourneys; the Lake Hills Invitational, and the Sectionals. In the Lake Hills Invitational, the four top players on the team shot a total of 375 to place 16 out of 23 teams. Later in Sectional play, the Pioneer divot- makers shot 377 to place 17 out of 24 teams. The Pioneers had only one senior on the team this year, so the returning players should improve on last year’s record because of the experience gained in a year of underclass varsity play. This year there will be three returning lettermen. These lettermen are: Jim Eberle, Ken Kantowski, and Den Burk. Also earning letters this year were Jack Taylor, who was the lone graduating senior on the team, and Greg Gross. 93 Hatczel Sets City Freshmen Mile Record; Speed merchants T. Allison, J. Kocsis, H. LaBrant, and H. Crouch sparked Clark’s mile-relay team to an unusually suc¬ cessful spring season. Star shot-putter Jack Deshincoe improves his technique by constant practice. This past season he made an all-out assault on Clark’s long-standing shot record. Senior Tom Milanowski ranks as Clark’s top distance run¬ ner. He is shown here completing his warm up. 94 13 Lettermen Return Clark’s track team, led by thirteen underclass¬ men, opened the 1962 season with the city indoor meet at the University of Chicago Fieldhouse. The Pioneers managed 221 2 points, which was good enough for third place. High point of the meet was sophomore Harvey Crouch, who captured first in the 440-yard dash with a time of 54.9 seconds. A week later the Pioneers and Coach Steve Stavros returned to the U. of C. Fieldhouse for the Con¬ ference Indoor. The cindermen fared well. Clark played host to Valparaiso in the first dual meet of the year. The Vikings crushed the Clark Hopefuls 74-34. The thinclads regained their con¬ fidence by placing first in every event and 1-2 in six events against rival Whiting. The final tally read 92-16 in favor of Clark. But the glory was short-lived. Morton bombed the Pioneers 87-20. Coach Stavros found T. F. North more to his liking as he led the cindermen to a 63-46 victory. Continuing the streak, Clark soared to a 72-36 win over the Trojans of Highland. After competing in the Hammond Relays, the trackmen journeyed to Tech for a triangular meet with the Tigers and Gary Lew Wallace. In conten¬ tion but not in the money, the thinclads garnered 501 2 points for second place. Clark next competed in the relays at Chesterton. Jack Deschincoe cap¬ tured first in the shot put with a heave of 48’. Returning home, the Pioneers welcomed Bishop Noll to Clark Field for a dual meet. The cindermen found the visitors stubborn but not unbeatable. The final score card pegged Clark the victor, 58-51. Closing out the season the track team ventured to LaPorte for the latter’s Invitational. Clark found the competition much too tough. Clark finished the season at the Hammond City Outdoor Meet. While lettering thirteen underclassmen, Coach Steve Stavros lost only three to graduation. Fresh¬ man Bob Hatczel set the city freshmen mile record, and junior Jack Deschincoe improved steadily. The mile relay team came within five seconds of break¬ ing the school record. With such prospects as these and with continued hard work, the outlo ok for 1963 can be nothing but bright.

Pioneers Third in Western Division Race Behind the capable leadership of Emerson Aid- rich, the hardballers of G.R.C. played even .500 baseball while capturing third place in the Western Division standings. Adding non-conference games, stickmen finished with an 8 and 7 record. The stickmen collected 12 hits in the season’s opener to dump Highland by a score of 11-2. The team then traveled to Lowell where they picked up a 13-0 victory by slamming out an identical total of hits. The team’s home debut was spoiled by a scrappy Governor squad (8-1), and Crown Point’s Bulldogs showed a balanced attack while slipping by the stickmen 6-4. The last non-conference game was a slim 4-3 victory over Calumet Twp., with the winning run crossing the plate in the bottom half of the seventh. Jeff Render pitched a brilliant two-hitter in the team’s first Western Division game, which the stick¬ men won 2-0 over Whiting. The hardballers w-ere once again defeated, this time by E. C. Roosevelt. In this game the team took a 4-3 lead, only to lose by a 5-4 score. Recovering, the diamondmen stopped E. C. Washington 14-1 and Tech 13-2. In the two games the Pioneers’ hit total was 20, and the pitch¬ ers yielded only a scanty eight hits. Rain postponed a few games, both conference and non-conference, but the baseballers quickly returned to action. First- round play was ended with a 5-4 defeat at the hands of Hammond High. The second-round opener found the hardballers absorbing their worst defeat of the season, (7-2) from a powerful E. C. Roosevelt team. The stick¬ men beat a much-improved Whiting team by a score of 8-7. This game was a 13-inning marathon, and ended in an Oiler strike-out with men on base. The following week it was a differentrstory as the Wild¬ cats held the team to two hits and no runs. The hardballers beat Tech, but ended the season by los¬ ing to E. C. Washington a close score of 6-5. Chuck Freeland led all regulars with a .315 aver¬ age. He also banged out 12 hits and scored 12 runs, enough to capture first in both departments. In the R.B.I.’s category, Jeff Render led with 9 for the season. 96 Scenic Clark field provides the setting as junior Bob Kukta launches a burning fast ball. Win Two At Whiting Bob Kukta swings and misses for his second strike. Bobby Jo lined the next pitch for a run-producing single. Junior Greg Terranova holds the runner with a quick glance at second base then completes his toss to first. Tom Hovanec punches a single to right field. Batting skill of this kind helped Clark to a winning season. 97 Physical Education Program Diversifies Tarzan, Joe Vargo, savagely clings to the rope tempts to climb to the top during Mr. Franklin’s as he at- gym class. Both males and females at Clark took part in the physical education program, of which four se¬ mesters were required of all students. The program was organized in such a way as to provide a variety of activities in which the students could participate. Girls, under the direction of Miss Doris Myers and Miss Jackie Bruno, took part in many activities. They learned poise, good sportmanship, and the skills of athletics. They participated in sports such as basketball, volleyball, and baseball. Even the trampoline was used by the girls for a short period of time to keep physically fit. Boys’ gym classes, under the instruction of Coach Joe Franklin, also included varied activities. Practic¬ ing calisthenics was an important, although hardly popular, method of getting the boys in shape. The boys took part in football, basketball, and baseball during the appropriate seasons. Emphasis was also placed on certain carry-over sports which could be played later on in life. Instruction was given in sports such as bowling, golf, and fishing, and even trap shooting and hunting. During free time in gym classes the boys could climb the rope, walk the ladder, do chins on the chinning bar, or skip rope in order to build up their stamina. Mihalo Directs Tumblers in Second Year The Tumbling Club, under the leadership of Joe Franklin, entered its second year as an organized club. George Mihalo was elected president. Serving with him were Warren Prickett, vice-president, and Bob Seth, secretary-treasurer. It has long been the wish of Coach Franklin that a club such as this could be organized. He feels that a boy with gymnastic ability should be given the chance to develop this ability. He also hopes that one day we will have much of the gymnastic equipment that we now lack. The Tumbling Club was formed for boys not out for athletics and no longer taking gym. The boys meet on each Wednesday to work and practice for the tumbling meets that are scheduled during the year. On these days the boys work on new stunts and routines, while also polishing the basic funda¬ mentals that must be learned. During the year tumbling meets are held with the different high schools in the city. In the spring the boys highlight the year with a picnic at Wicker Park. TUMBLING CLUB—FRONT ROW: E. Taylor, A.

Girls Stress Fitness and Interested G.A.C. bowlers discuss the rules and procedures for their yearly tournament at Parkview Bowling Lanes. The three busdrivers will agree that “Ice Cream for G.A.C.” was an appropriate title for the annual G.A.C. picnic, and the G.A.C.ers sang their way to and from Marquette Park in Gary. During the picnic, the girls took part in relays, volleyball, pie¬ eating and treasure hunt contests, and even a few games of touch football. G.A.C. sweaters seemed to have been a real in¬ centive this year. Participation in the four sports was higher than ever before. While participating in softball, swimming, bowling, and basketball, the girls earned points towards their letters. A volley¬ ball tourney was also added. At the Mother-Daughter Banquet, held at the end of the year, awards are presented, new mem¬ bers are initiated, and letters, monograms or num¬ erals are presented to those girls with the required amount of points. Girls acquiring one-hundred fifty points are eligible to receive their sweaters with the numeral. Two-hundred fifty points are required to receive the monogram and three-hundred points are required to receive the letter. Under the sponsorship of Miss Doris Myers, the Girls’ Athletic Club has increased considerably the last few years. Keeping its members fit, trim, and healthy is the main goal of G.A.C. Fun in G.A.C. Pepsi is in unusual demand as the G.A.C. girls take up the task of selling their goodies. G.A.C. provides this useful service at all Pioneer home football games. C-CLUB—FRONT ROW: G. Terranova, A.

Activities Increase under C-Club Plan With the able leadership from co-sponsors, Mr. Ed Shields and Mr. Richard Daugherty, plus high- spirited willingness to co-operate, this year’s C-Club established itself as one of the most active or- ganziations in our school. Boys automatically be¬ come a member of C-Club after they earn a major letter on the interschool competition basis. Some of the club’s major undertakings were selling programs at all home football games and selling popcorn at various home athletic events. A letterman jacket was presented to a sick letter holder who has been confined to bed for the past year. An annual C-Club dance in the latter part of the year and two parties for club members rounded out the social events for the boys. Highlighting all was the annual banquet at which time awards for the year were presented. Most of the money accumulated during the year was spent to procure trophies and other rewards for deserving members. What remained was stored in the treasury for future use. As leaders in the school, C-Club members dis¬ play sportsmanship, school spirit, and above all gentlemanly attitude in all their activities.

Laughing or crying, walking or running, playing or working, eating or sleeping . . . which ever it may be, one can be assured someone at Clark is doing it. While each person at Clark is an individual, each wants to be one of the group. Although everybody is searching for his peak of success, all are trying to reach some goal. Whether it be teacher or student, one will find this type of individual at George Rogers Clark. PEOPLE The Administration Overcomes Problems As the principal here at Clark, Mr. Durward D. Lockey is kept quite busy supervising the activities of the entire school, dealing with unexpected prob¬ lems, and handling important school business. Although most of his free time is spent with his wife and two daughters, Mr. Lockey still finds time for other interests. He is a past President of the Hammond Lions Club, and is still very active in the organization. Mr. Lockey is a member of the board of the First Methodist Church in Hammond, and enjoys teaching Sunday school. He is also vice- president of the City Council of the P.T.A. In the past he has served as a colonel in the Community Chest Drive. His hobbies include all types of sports. He likes to golf, to bowl with the faculty team, and is Clark’s Number One booster. Mr. Lockey also en¬ joys gardening, especially raising flowers. Now in his second year here, Mr. Lockey says that he likes Clark very much. He commends Clark students for their friendliness, school spirit, and fine attitude toward their studies. He advises all students, that throughout life “When you play, play hard, and when you work, work hard.” Principal D. D. Lockey stops a moment during his busy schedule to catch up on necessary reading. A moment of peace and quiet is a rare one for our conscientious principal. Mr. Lockey converses with Dr. Tatum, former principal of Roosevelt High School following a monthly PTA meeting. Mr. Lockey and Miss Morrison, Clark’s art teacher, relax during a well-deserved coffee break. 106 and Plans for the Future HAMMOND SCHOOL BOARD—Mrs. Margaret Allen; Dr. Henry Eggers, president; Mr. Leo Bereolas, treasurer; Mrs. Claire Stern, secretary; Mr. Charles Scott. Another busy school year has been completed by the Hammond Board of Education. The board is made up of trustees elected by the people, and is headed by Dr. Henry Eggers, president of the five member group and R. B. Miller, Superintendent of Hammond Public School System. The board is responsible for the building of addi¬ tional educational facilities, the purchasing of land and school equipment, the appointment and transfer of teachers, and dealing with the various problems which arise during the school year. Much of the work done by the board is often not apparent to the students, but this is not always the case. Many changes and repairs seen throughout the building, such as new desks and fluorescent lights, are the result of work done by the board.

B. Miller’s long and dedicated career in education. Throughout his career, Mr. Miller has worked tire¬ lessly to fulfill his goal, which is “To render an important service to the youth of America.” After attending high schools in Illinois and Missouri, Mr. Miller entered Central Weslyan College in Warrenton, Missouri. He completed work on his B.A. degree at the University of Chicago. He did graduate work at Columbia University where he ob¬ tained his M.A. degree. Mr. Miller has since done additional graduate work at Indiana University and the University of Chicago. In 1915 Mr. Miller started teaching in Watson, Illinois, after which he taught for a single year at Whiting High School. From 1922-1926, he taught at Irving School. This was the first of many posi¬ tions he was to fill in the Hammond school system. He next served as principal of Franklin Jr. High School for six years. In 1932 Mr. Miller became principal at Clark. Throughout his eighteen year stay here, Mr. Miller was very popular with both faculty and students. It is said that he could walk down the hall and call every student by name. In 1950 he became Assistant Superintendent of Schools. In 1959, he was named the new Superintendent. Mr. Miller has held many positions and received many honors in connection with education. He has also been active in the community as a member of the American Legion, Masonic Lodge, Lions Club, and the Chamber of Commerce. He is married and his son Dr. R. Drew Miller is an Associate Director of the Mayo Foundation at the famous Mayo Brothers Clinic. 108 Faculty Keeps Scholastic Standards High EMERSON ALDRICH . . . B.S., M.S., . . .

Dear Seniors: “Too bad that youth is wasted upon young people,” wrote George Bernard Shaw. However, we don’t believe it has been wasted upon the young people of the Class of 1963! At times your enthusiasm and energy almost overwhelmed us; you used them with such conscious responsibility and exciting creativity that open pride was our emotion. Your presence has made a difference for us. We hope that these bright stars of youthful purpose will shine through your eyes again and again. We want you to make a joyous difference for the lives of all of those with whom you share the years ahead. “Should auld acquaintance be forgot and ne’er brought to mind?” Every year will bring reunion if we keep our youth, our stars, the pioneering spirit! - 113 Numerous Activities Occupy a Senior ' s K CLASS OFFICERS: B.

And senior Dan Pramuk proves it while putting finishing touches to the class float, “Roll Thoz Tigers” We, the class of 1963, formed high ideals and goals to guide us through our four years at G.R.C. Our freshman officers were Jim Stasny, president; Jean Tolchinsky, vice-president; Sue Eaton, secre¬ tary; and Mark Trombley, treasurer. Our sponsors during our freshman year were Rhoda Kittelsen and Boyd Scarborough. Our freshman dance, “Hula-la,” was the most successful dance of the school year. Our first undertaking as sophomores was the con¬ struction of a class float, “Give ’Em The ’Ole Heave Ho.” After selecting our class rings, we began work on the class dance, “Bullwinkle’s Bounce” which proved to be a huge success as was the dance in our freshman year. Our junior year proved to be a challenge to our talents and capabilities. Mr. Arthur Erickson and Miss Doris Myers, our new sponsors, helped us to gain the success for which we strived. To our great disappointment, our class float, “Knock ’Em Down with One Blow,” was not considered for competi¬ tion in the Homecoming parade because of late entry. A few months later we eagerly awaited the announcement of the cast for our class play, The Matchmaker. Next on our busy schedule was the class dance, “Roaring Twenties.” Two chorus lines composed of junior students performed a Charleston for the amusement of many spectators. The climax of our junior year was on June 1, 1962, when we presented our prom “In the Still of the Night.” After three years of an uphill struggle, we ar¬ rived on top. We were seniors. We would work on our last Homecoming, make our final entry in the parade, choose our queen, perform in the senior skit, vote for our final officers, and hold our last dance, “Memories are Made of This . . .” which was a huge scrapbook commemorating the events of previous years. Following Baccalaureate and Com¬ mencement many of us will still retain the battle scars received from working on dances, on floats, on cars, in committees, on plays, in athletic com¬ petition, and in scholastic competition, but they are mementos of four wonderful years at Clark. 114 Lively Day at Clark “Ya think you’re tough don’t ya?

He participated in such school activities as Band, Wrestling, and Biology Club. He will al¬ ways be remembered for his friendliness. 127 A Touch of the Orient JUNIOR OFFICERS: FRONT ROW—D. Stombaugh, treas¬ urer; M. Popovich, secretary; W. Wood, co-president. BACK ROW—K. Kantowski, co-president. As Juniors the class of 1964 had a busy and suc¬ cessful year. Their float for Homecoming won a third place ribbon and they took first place in the pep assembly yell contest. Soon to follow in November came their dance and play. The theme of their dance was Shangra-La. Exotic Far Eastern decor added to its success. The play, Cheaper By The Dozen, brought funds to finance the Prom on May 31, 1963.

The greenies began their whirl this year. This whirl will get faster and faster until such events as their prom and graduation deem an end. The choosing of a homecoming attendant was the first big step for the Frosh. They set a field of four girls from which the student body selected one, as in previous years. Dances, clubs, games, pep-sessions and the rest of the high school activities welcomed the Freshman Class to the G.R.C. curriculum.

Perhaps your decision will be to go on for fur¬ ther education. Or it may be, you will be looking for the job of your choice. In either event, this deci¬ sion will affect and shape your future life in many ways. Regardless of what you decide, we hope that the Inland Steel Company will be a part of your future. Many graduates are currently involved in successful careers here at the Harbor Works as part of the nation’s basic steel industry. Steel mill work today is highly complex, involving automated production lines which require people who can be trained in skilled jobs. Most of the jobs are in¬ volved directly in the steel- making process while others are available in the labora¬ tories or in various departmen¬ tal offices. Regardless of your interests, excellent opportunities exist with Inland Steel. In addition to excellent paying jobs and an out¬ standing benefit program, Inland offers a variety of on- the-job training programs plus the Purdue-Inland Program. This Program, offered to a full time employee, provides training in the areas of steelmaking, mechanics, and electricity. Plan now to investigate the many opportuni¬ ties for your future with Inland Steel Company.

Smith Co. Yearbook Consultant . Mr. Richard Brier Journalism Sponsor . Mr. George Muir One more Poivder Horn is completed and so is one terrific year. Aside from a few traumas, head¬ aches, and near heart attacks the staff has come through and completed the book. There is no way to express appreciation to the staff, students, fac¬ ulty, and businessmen who have co-operated to make this book possible. All I can do is say “THANKS” to every “cutie” and “bush” who has helped. There were times when I wasn’t sure if it could be done. So, I yelled and screamed, and threatened—and in return got barked at, criticized, and ignored. But through all this came an experi¬ ence which I know I shall never forget. To tell the story of Clark would require several volumes and demand full-time employment. I have tried to do it in one book, a few hours a day. If I have accomplished my goal—to tell the 1963 story—I will have “climbed every mountain” which has been presented to me. Jean Tolchinsky Editor-in-chief 176
