Homecoming was a weekend that no Clarkite will ever forget. It was a welcoming back of the alumni and also a festive moment in the eyes and hearts of the Pioneers. Sectionals began the new year with both victory and defeat, but the stu¬ dents held their heads high with spirit and loyalty to GRC. Graduation brought an end to the year, but not to the memories. Yes, it was a year filled with hard study, busy activities, success, defeat, and to some it meant only the closing of one door to await the beckoning of another. So to you we say, join us in our travels— LET’S TAKE A TOUR OF THAT YEAR 1964! Institutors Gain Knowledge and Experience Clark’s representatives to the 1963 Girls’ State were Mary Boswell and Mary Ann Kokot. During the summer preceding the 1963-1964 school year, several Clark students attended special institutes in order to acquire the basic knowledge needed to perform their duties during the year. One of the greatest honors a high school student can receive is to be chosen to attend Boys’ State or Girls’ State. These institutes are held during two different weeks at Indiana University. During these institutes the delegates, Greg Terranova, Den Burk, Tom Snider, Mary Boswell, and Mary Ann Kokot, formed a mock state government. Michelle Summers, Clark’s delegate to the librar¬ ians’ workshop, spent one week at Indiana Univer¬ sity learning proper librarian skills. The editors of the Pioneer News and the Powder Horn attended workshops at Indiana University to develop journalistic talents. Kathy Dubich, Pioneer News editor, spent two weeks at a workshop learning the fundamentals of high school newspaper writing and actual production. Henrietta Kasprzak, editor of the Powder Horn, and Mary Toops, assist¬ ant editor, attended a similar two week session. Varsity cheerleaders, K. Pajak, A. Poison, C. Scha- low, R. Vater, M. A. Kokot, and J. Macocha spent five days at the cheering camp in Syracuse, Indiana. The girls took classes in cheering techniques, tumbling, and pep assemblies. Pioneer News editor, Kathy Dubich, attended a two-week newspaper institute at Indiana University. Assistant Editor, Mary Toops, and Editor, “Hank” Kasprzak, spent two weeks at the yearbook institute. 5 “Auld Acquaintances Not Forgotten in 1964 A glimpse into the social studies lounge revealed Mr. Ber¬ nard Charlet, Mr. John Mybeck, and Mr. John Heslin initia¬ ting Student-Teacher Mr. Tom Elder in the custom and tra¬ dition of enjoying a teacher’s “free hour.” Friendship is a basic need for all human beings. Fulfilling this requirement comes easy to Clarkites. A warm and friendly atmosphere surrounds the students and faculty in the halls and in the class¬ rooms. Students and teachers new to Clark find themselves readily accepted as friends and, more important, as fellow Pioneers. Every individual can find activities and friend¬ ships whether it be in clubs, in choruses, in sports, or in academic subjects. The diversified clubs and organizations provide opportunities for any Pioneer to be a real and vital part of his school. The stu¬ dents work together as a unit in backing the teams and participating in extra-curricular activities. The comparatively small size of Clark’s student body makes possible a closer and more personal relationship between teachers and students. Faculty members are willing and able to be of any assistance to a student needing help with an academic or social problem. Clark takes pride in knowing that the friendship which has been extended to students throughout the years has left an impression which has warranted frequent visits from alumni. Seniors Sharon Labus and Jim Ilijanich exchange their last few words before being “cut-off” by the homeroom bell. 6 “We’re on our way!” “New York, here we come!” These were the cries that issued from the three hundred and sixty Hammond students bound for New York City and Washington, D.C., on the an¬ nual one week trip, courtesy of the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad. The students, including thirty-three girls and fifteen boys from Clark, left on October 22, and after spending twenty-four active hours on the train, arrived in New York City. Many students spent the evening sight-seeing along Broadway and Times Square. Early the next morning, the groups boarded spe¬ cial buses to see China Town, the Statue of Liberty, the United Nations, and the Empire State Building. Friday morning the group toured the NBC tele¬ vision and radio studios located in Rockefeller Cen¬ ter, and watched the show at Radio City Music Hall. Following an afternoon of shopping, the groups boarded the train to Washington, D.C. Tours of Mount Vernon, the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the White House, and Arlington National Cemetery filled the next day. Sunday, students posed for a group picture, toured the Capitol, and climbed the Washington Monument; Monday, they reluctantly returned to Hammond. The beautiful view of New York City at night thrilled and impressed Clark journeyers. Clarkites Venture Forth to Distant Horizons 7 Homecoming Activities Lure Alumni Back The theme of the ’63 Homecoming festivities was “Chil¬ dren’s Fairy Tales”. One of these fairy tales, the “Three On Thursday afternoon, October 3, excitement filled the halls and the hearts at Clark as the 1963 Homecoming attendants and senior nominees were announced. Then, early Friday morning Booster Club members, cheerleaders, and teachers set up a Pioneer display on the front lawn of the school. Above the main door stretched the words, “Welcome G.R.C. Alumni”. Upon the four-leaf clovers mingled with grass stood a six-foot horseshoe bidding the Pioneer team “Good Luck”. The senior skit, cheers, pep talk, yell contest, and announcement of the 1963 Homecoming Queen roused the Pioneers’ spirits during the pep assembly Friday afternoon. Reigning as Queen over this festive weekend was senior, Joann Smigla. The Queen’s attendants were: Pat Dado, freshman; Sandy Psikula, sophomore; Eileen Wisemiller, junior; and seniors, Mary Ann Kokot and Lorraine Noworyta. Many cheered the parade of decorated cars that passed through town before the game. Disappoint¬ ingly, though, the Pioneers lost the game. The traditional Saturday evening dance brought an end to this memorable weekend. Little Pigs,” was represented on the front lawn. It portrayed the Horsemen as the “wolf” and Clark as the fearless “pigs”.

The dominant effect was a casual one. Girls rated mohair sweaters with oxford cloth shirts and co¬ ordinated skirts as their favorites for school wear. The shift reached a new level of sophistication. Jumpers, high boots, spats, and clutch purses, too, rated high and were available in all styles and colors. The boys preferred the casual look of cardigans and dark tapered pants. Trench coats reached a new popularity while tennis shoes became tabu. During their leisure time, girls sported suede or corduroy tops with matching slacks or bermudas, perts, culottes, and stretch pan ts. Both boys and girls donned colorful ski parkas. three-quartered suede-edged coat, and Rick Pemberton wears the popular trench coat. Paul Makis shows Clark’s athletic jacket, Carol Schalow wears a fur-collared suede coat, Pamela Popovich models a 11 Whiting Sub - juniors Present “Snowbound “Sub-Debbers” pause to chat with friends for a few moments during one of the breaks between dances. Seniors Donna Ogle and Jerry Poloncak pause a moment to catch a breath and have a few pictures taken. Sub-Junior officers Mary Ellen Kew and Karen McCutcheon dance with their dates around cheerful center of attraction, “Frosty the Snowman.” The annual Sub-Deb, or turnabout semi-formal, was held December 23 at Madura’s Danceland. Girls with their favorite guys danced to the music of Frankie Gry’s Quartette. The theme, “Snow¬ bound” was complimented by a fresh layer of new- fallen snow especially ordered for the dance. In the middle of the dimly-lit dance floor, surrounded by silver ball ornaments and crepe paper, stood “Frosty the Snowman” all “perked up” with bows and ornaments for Christmas. On a platform at one end of the floor was a flocked Christmas tree illuminated with rotating colored lights. Directly in front of this, the punch table glowed with float¬ ing candles. Beautiful semi-formals and formals added to the expression of festivity. Over one hundred twenty-five couples from Clark, Whiting, Noll, Morton, and Roosevelt attended the affair sponsored by the Whiting Sub-Juniors. The officers: Karen McCutcheon, president; Mel- by Treadway, vice-president; Mary Ellen Kew, treasurer; and Linda Hric, secretary and chairman of the dance, led the Grand March. A program was given to each girl as a memento of the occasion. 12 Winter Concert Spotlights Contemporaries On January 22, 1964, the George Rogers Clark High School Senior Band presented the first of its two annual band concerts. Mr. Carlyle J. Snider, the conductor of this talented group of musicians, directed the band in a series of numbers which exhibited a variety of types of music. The Dixieland combo, consisting of Jon Fech, Tom Mullins, Dennis Burk, Tom Snider, Godfrey Jarabak, and Buzz Mad¬ sen, presented to the student-adult audience the “swinging” music of the 1930’s. This group orig¬ inated through frequent jam sessions in the band room during study halls or lunch hours. The entire band presented a Twentieth Century piece of music, “Prairie Overture” by Ward. For those who crave light music, the group played “No Strings” by Rogers and “Vincent Youmans Pantas”, a collection of contemporary, popular songs. To satisfy those who enjoy a number with a snappy, Latin beat, the musicians played “Beguine for Band” by Osser. Stimulating the folk music craze, the band performed a piece by Walters entitled “Hootenanny.” The audience responded with a vigorous round of applause on completion of the finale, “Russian Dances” by Barrymore. As a member of the Dixieland combo, Senior Tom Snider executes a jazz passage on his coronet during the Concert. Much hard work and rehears¬ ing goes into the band concert. Director Mr. Carlyle Snider conducts the group through their first number in prepara¬ tion for the coming event. 13 CAST—FRONT ROW: B. Bugajski, J. Madsen, M. A. Poracky, K. Flaris. BACK ROW: J. Miller, R. Duhon, B. Harper, S. Harangody, D. Dijak, B. Leslie, A. J. Saliga, N. Cervone, R. Serafin, G. Gurevitz, P. Banik, H. Humphreys, M. Benko. Energy, Talent, Perseverence Combine to Tootie (Kathy Flaris) consoles her distressed mother (Mary Ann Poracky) when the family learns that they must leave St. Louis and move to New York. In November the glittering personalities of a rollicking St. Louis family came to life on the G.R.C. stage when seventeen members of the Junior Class and a patient director, Miss Jeani Knapp, presented the well-known story of Meet Me in St. Louis. Working along with the cast were two student di¬ rectors, Janet Macocha and Leonard Marcisz. The Smith children were well-known for their crazy antics in their St. Louis neighborhood. When Mr. and Mrs. Smith (Jim Madsen and Mary Ann Poracky) tell their family that they’re going to move to New York, the children’s antics become crazy no more. They have one purpose in mind— to remain in St. Louis. Rose (Barb Leslie), Ester (Nancy Cervone), and Lonnie (Bob Harper) try older teenage tactics to stay and see the opening of the World’s Fair. When their tactics fail, Agnes (Barb Bugajski) and Tootie (Kathy Flaris), the two younger Smith chil¬ dren, try their devilish luck. If Mr. Dodge (Gary Gurevitz) wasn’t getting his leg bitten by Tootie, the daring ten year old, Mr. Dodge and his sidekick, Mr. Duffy (Paul Banik) were being drenched by water bombs. With the last hearty handshake and the bursting of fireworks, the curtain fell, the stage lights dimmed, and the players were merely juniors again. 14 Two girls from the “make-up” department work to age Dennis Dijak for his role in the play. Joel Kaplan assists Gary Gurevitz with last minute costume preparations before the first performance. Present the Hit — “Meet Me in St. Louis ” L v r [1 h Barb Leslie, Kathy Flaris, and Mary Ann Poracky argue with Gary Gurevitz and Paul Banik about their transfer to New York from St. Louis. 15 Production of “Girl Crazy”Amuses Audience Dan’s Dude Ranch was the scene of plenty of action when a gr oup c f “desperadoes” came to town. During the months of March, April, and May, some 100 teachers, students, and parents began feverishly working on the all school play Girl Crazy. It was a hectic period for all concerned. Teaching sixteen left-footed students eight dances was no easy job for Miss Jeani Knapp, the production manager. An equally hard job was in store for Miss Thelma Wilcox, the musical director, who had to teach these same sixteen students to sing the eight numbers. The plot centered around Danny Churchill, a young New York playboy, who was sent to Arizona by his father. Despite his parent’s demands to stay away from women, Danny soon built a dude ranch, hired chorus girls, and started to build a huge fortune. Performances of the play were May 10 and 11. After eight weeks of preparation, the show did go on and proved to be one of the most successful and entertaining productions ever attempted. It was definitely another fine compliment to the theater department of George Rogers Clark. Along with their partners, Barbara Hered and Nancy Miller ability during one of the musical numbers featured in the demonstrate their dancing prowess as well a3 their singing spirited all school play, “Girl Crazy.” 16 G. R. C. travelers, constantly on the go, only stopped long enough to look around and snap a few pictures. The Air Force Academy, with the peaks of the modernistic chapel in the background, highlighted the trip to Denver. Air Force Academy Fascinates Our Clarkites Two fun-packed days amid the splendor of the Rockies describes the trip taken by the Forum Club to the “Mile High City”, Denver, Colorado. The fun began on a Friday early this spring when 45 anxious students, teachers, and parents stepped aboard the Denver Zephyr and embarked upon their weekend journey. This was, indeed, to be no ordin¬ ary high school field trip. From their arrival Saturday morning at 8:30, until their departure Sunday at 4:00 P.M., the enthusiastic tourists were constantly “on the go”. The minute they reached the Denver Union Station, they threw their luggage aboard touring buses and wheeled away for a delightful day of sight-see¬ ing. After touring the Denver business district and University of Denver campus, the tourists proceeded to Colorado Springs. There they saw the business district; Colorado College campus; the impressive Air Force Academy, with its modernistic buildings, its awe-inspiring Cadet Chapel, and its vast parade grounds; and the fabulous Broadmoor Hotel district. Before returning to Denver they viewed snow-cap¬ ped Pikes Peak, South Cheyenne Canyon, Garden of the Gods, beautiful Seven Falls, Manitou Springs, and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. The travelers ate din¬ ner and spent the night at The Hilton, Denver’s newest hotel. After Sunday breakfast the group checked out of The Hilton to begin their final day of sight-seeing. Even though our tourists experienced a drought¬ breaking rain, their spirits were as high as ever. They stopped for a view of the famous open-air Red Rocks Amphitheatre and moved on to Mt. Vernon Canyon, Squaw Pass, Echo Lake, and Chicago Creek. They enjoyed a luncheon in Central City, an historic old mining town once famous for the “richest square mile in the world.” Here our tourists saw such silent reminders of the Gold Rush days as the Teller House, with its famous “Face on the Barroom Floor,” and the Old Opera House. The trip home that night was certainly a happy one, for everyone was filled with the satisfaction of having been to one of the most scenic and pic¬ turesque areas of the United States. 17 Senator Birch E. Bayh Advises Clarkites Honoring Clark with a special appearance, Senator Birch E. Bayh speaks with good-natured humor on the “Dunes issue,” school reorganization, and active citizenship. George Rogers Clark High School was honored on February 20, 1964, by having as its guest the distinguished Senator Birch E. Bayh. Mr. Bayh, who is a Terre Haute resident, was graduated from both Purdue and Indiana Universities. The Senator was elected to Congress in 1962 and will be up for reelection in November of 1968. In addressing a third hour assembly, Senator Bayh spoke on several topics from school reorgan¬ ization to the Civil Rights Bill. While presenting his highly interesting talk, Mr. Bayh quoted the legendary Winston Churchill. The Congressman dis¬ played a youthful vigor and was warmly received by the students. As his last point, he emphasized the importance of being a “first class citizen.” “Now Mr. Senator . . . . ” Following Senator Bayh’s address to Clark students and faculty, Mr. Arthur Erickson snatched the opportunity to give his opinion on a pressing political problem to the Senator. “Magic Is the Moonlight” Highlights Year Prom couples assemble themselves for the beginning of More Hall to a medley of school songs performed by the the Grand March. Prom-goers process around the St. Thomas Reynold Young quintette. This event climaxed the formal. The Class of 1964 presented its junior prom “Magic Is the Moonlight” on May 31, 1963. St. Thomas More Hall was the site of this long-awaited event. Upon crossing the wooden bridge covered with white carpeting which stood at the entrance of the hall, the guests were confronted by the beautifully decorated dance floor. Picturesque murals, a skyline of Chicago and the moon shining on Lake Michigan, covered two of the walls. A life-sized garden with white wrought- iron furniture accented a third wall. Hundreds of silver stars hung from the ceiling, and in their midst was suspended a revolving, glittering globe. Couples danced to the delightful music of Reynold Young and his orchestra, and enjoyed the refresh¬ ments which were served in an adjoining room. The Grand March was led by James Stasny, president of the Class of 1963, and by the co¬ presidents of the junior class, Ken Kantowski and Walter Wood. Among the chaperones were Miss Doris Myers and Mr. Arthur Erickson, sponsors of the class of ’63, and Mrs. Robert Dunham and Mr. Joseph Franklin, sponsors of the class of ’64. One of the guests of honor was Mr. D. D. Lockey, principal of Clark High School. By midnight everyone departed for the post-prom party which was held at the Del Prado Hotel in downtown Chicago. The famished couples enjoyed the hotel’s good food and entertainment. With regret everyone knew the evening was rapidly coming to a close and that all would be too soon a memory. 19 Seniors Close One Door in Their Lives; Laura Kessler envisions the day when she will receive her well- deserved diploma. To many seniors high school graduation had been a distant thing. When the measuring for caps and gowns came in February, however, many seniors were hit with reality. They were seniors and their days in Clark’s halls were growing short. Plans conceived years before were finally materializing. The senior class dinner was held on May 14, at the Sherwood Country Club in Schererville, Indiana. Instead of the customary signing of yearbooks, a program was planned for the enjoyment of both teachers and students. Beginning in June, activity reached a frenzied pitch as studies and graduation competed for stu¬ dents’ time. The first Friday of June brought Com¬ mencement. On the afternoon of June 7, Baccalau¬ reate was held. The following Monday was designated as Senior Activity Day. Volleyball and ping-pong were played during the day, and the highlight of the evening was the distribution of the 1964 POWDER HORN. Dr. Dean Berkley, Director of Field Service for Indiana University, spoke at the Commencement exercises. On that night 215 seniors received their diplomas, completing and leaving behind a segment of their lives that will always be remembered. 20 n Kauchak, Senior Class President, addresses the grad- ting class of 1964 during Commencement exercises.

Since the creation of man, one’s mental well-being has been greatly affected by his recognition of true and lasting abstract ideas. A large part of the G.R.C. curriculum is devoted to the attainment of excellence in judging, formulat¬ ing, and expressing these ideas. Courses in freshmen and sophomore English and literature teach the invaluable rudiments of gram¬ mar and good literature. Miss Lambert’s and Miss McCampbell’s junior composition and literature courses supplement the “basics” with increased attention to values and ideas. By reading Greek tragedies and Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Mrs. Gate’s senior composition and English literature students are introduced to the humanities. Particular notice is paid to the timelessness of hu¬ man nature. Miss Knapp’s speech students are drilled on de¬ bating techniques and parliamentary procedure. By presenting demonstrations and speeches they notice¬ ably increase their oratorical skill. Guided by Mr. Erickson, the debate team learned to present facts and arguments clearly, convincing¬ ly, and logically. Junior Ruth Tkach discloses her oratorical ability during Miss Lambert’s third hour English class. 24 in the Language Dept.

At least one of these identical fundamental phrases can be comprehended by College Prepara¬ tory students due to the varied foreign language courses offered to them. Clark can now boast four languages which are firmly implanted in the foreign language curriculum thus, rounding out the previous departmental arrangement. The foreign language department has continually advanced in its fight against “cultural lag”. As an example, the extension of the Spanish and Latin programs has afforded the students the opportunity for specialized study in culture as well as grammar essentials. A major help to the progress of the new three year Spanish program was the advent of the lan¬ guage lab. This new method of study provides students with the use of individual tape recorders to improve speech fluency. Background material on the Spanish-speaking countries was attained by the B. Reid utilizes the overhead projector, one of the many aids used throughout the Latin program. Her fellow classmates, use of films, tape recordings, and folk songs. Background material in the Latin program was obtained through the study of myths, plays, mottoes, quotations, and famous Roman personages. Latin students soon found that their “chosen language” gave them an insight into many different fields of study such as: law, medicine, literature, and music. German students learned to appreciate the fine points of the language by means of foreign news¬ papers, maps, book reports, and poetry. The phys¬ ical aspects of Germany were inspected and dis¬ cussed through extensive map work. The newest language heard throughout the halls during the year was French. Although French is only a newcomer to the foreign language depart¬ ment, it has been greeted with enthusiasm by knowledge-seeking students. The language lab was used in conjunction with records, background study, and regular textbook preparation. The language department hopes to continue in its present course as well as d evelop new instruction techniques to further progress. R. Graves, S. Hammersley, J. Lados, C. Krenz, are expected to absorb her discussion and apply it to their lessons. Second Year French Second hour Advanced German students tape short speeches to be played back for critical listening. Marcia Gaughan looks on as Debbie Etter demonstrates the French guillotine, much to Mike Janek’s dismay. Ron Yates laughingly wards off the “playful” advances of “bull” Jim Smolar during second hour Spanish class. 27 College - Bound Students Must Master Math metric theorem.

Dennis Dijak explains the steps in the solving of a funda¬ mental graph equation in advanced algebra to Mary Boswell. Peggy Davis and Laura Kessler work out a “trig” problem. Carol Leskovich goes through the steps in proving a geo- A wide variety of mathematics courses ranging from general math to analytic geometry is offered at Clark to those students interested in business, or higher mathematics. College preparatory students learned to solve simple equations in Algebra I. Sophomores indulged in geometric laws and the principles of logical thinking as part of their plane geometry course. Juniors worked with more complex equations in advanced algebra. They also learned how to use logarithms and the slide rule. A combination of algebra and plane geometry is needed by seniors taking trigonometry and solid and analytic geo¬ metry. Students interested in business practiced solving non-technical problems in general mathematics. Clark students are fortunate to have adequate department facilities. T-squares, compasses, and protractors are provided in all classes for board work, and each advanced algebra student received a slide rule while studying its use. The combined efforts of Miss Leah Booth, Mr. Oral Watkins, Mr. Emerson Aldrich, and Mr. Mich¬ ael Hriso have developed some of the most well- informed and up-to-date math students in the Calumet region. Invaluable to the study of biology and its related fields Mrzlock, Dave Merry, and Mike Lilly attain experience is the precise use of the microscope. Mike Leland, Suzanne with the microscopes by studying organisms. Biology and Health—Vital Sciences of Life College preparatory pupils as well as general and commercial course pupils took part in biology and health classes this year. These science courses pro¬ vide much needed knowledge as they make it pos¬ sible for students to understand the functions and the life processes of various organisms and their relationship to environment. Biological science is the study of the continuity of living things. In the course of the year the students spanned the biological spectrum from genes to man. They discovered the physiological workings of life, its ingenious methods of perpetuating itself, and the natural balance in nature. In health classes students dealt with the world’s most wonderous, yet most familiar phenomena— the functioning of the human body. They studied health in relationship to anatomy, which takes up the internal structure of the organisms, as well as in relationship to physiology, which probes the workings and functions of the body parts and how they tend to operate. Students were aided in this study by textbooks with extremely good illustra¬ tions and examples. They were also helped to store this knowledge through films and charts. Lorraine Noworyta and Theresa Hajduk check Jack Taylor’s explanation of blood circulation through the heart. 29 Shorthand and typing skills are combined by G. R. C. girls in the execution of transcription. “Notebooks flat, caps off of your pens, girls,” is the order of the day in beginning and advanced shorthand. In beginning shorthand a speed of eighty words a minute is reached at the end of the first year. At the end of the second year of advanced shorthand a speed of one hundred words or more a minute is desirable. Certificates are awarded at various levels of achievement. Typing, bookkeeping, business machines, and transcription classes form the solid foundation of the commercial course offered at Clark. Pupils are drilled ift business courses daily on the basis of their respective subjects. Typing, Clark’s longtime favorite business course, is found to be both useful and practical by all stu¬ dents, regardless of the course they pursue. The ultimate goal in each of these courses is accuracy and a thorough knowledge of funda¬ mentals. Business teachers emphasize the points they feel are keys to the future.

World by Experience 31 Trials Tribulations of the World Probed Contemporary History, an innovation in semester electives, met during the second hour. Mr. Bernard Charlet helps Jim Antilla and Sandra Offredo in their report by pointing out current “trouble spots” on the world events chart. G.R.C.’s social studies department has continued to offer to its students an excellent presentation of the social sciences. An advance course known as contemporary history was offered to seniors for the first time this school year as a one semester elective. In this class, stu¬ dents were given a chance to study present national and international events. Crisis in the trouble¬ some spots of the world such as, South Vietnam, Cuba, and the most controversial country, Russia, were studied. Lectures concerning world news given by Mr. Charlet and Mr. Erickson eliminated the need for textbooks. The class read local newspapers, Newsweek, Time, Russia by Sir Bernard Peres, and What You Should Know About Communism and Why, for insight into today’s problems. In a semester’s study of economics, Mr. Erick¬ son taught his classes about the production, distri¬ bution, and consumption of the country’s goods and services. He presented facts concerning competition with automation, problems of consumers and pro¬ ducers, and education’s role in securing good jobs. The government course instructed seniors in the major administrative systems of the world. The strength and durability of our own government was emphasized this year when it recovered from the tragic shift in our chief executives. U.S. history classes traced the important events in the growth and prosperity of the U.S.—from “birth” to “adulthood”. The real purpose of U.S. history is to instill in every student a sense of pride in our American Heritage. World history, unlike U.S. history, traced the growth of the world from prehistoric times to Egyp¬ tians to the discovery of the “New World” and right up through the World Wars. Past events studied in the various history class¬ es take on a deeper meaning because of the compli¬ mentary study which geography provides. A history student would be lost in a mound of rivers, moun¬ tains, towns, and countries, if geography did not supply the needed background. 32 by Clarkites in Social Studies Department Mr. Mueller gets out his “trusty” globe in world geography to show R. Bailey and J. Macocha the location of Hammond. Mr. Preusz points out the small but important country of Albania to P. Polucci and M. Lilly in World History I. Miss L. Parker, an Indiana University economics major, de- Balint, and John Golembiewski during a class discussion on bates an important issue with seniors Carol Balog, Barbara the pros and cons of government subsidies to agriculture. Clark’s fine arts program offered classes which helped students gain useful lifetime skills. As the odor of “something cooking” drifted through the halls, students knew that the “culin¬ ary artists” were again practicing their skills in Clark’s modern kitchen. Besides cooking classes, home-management was offered for prospective homemakers. In shop classes boys learned the uses of various woodworking tools. The boys’ efforts included lec¬ terns and bookcases used by the faculty. Sewing classes gave girls the chance to develop creative and economical skills. Outstanding work was displayed in the upper halls on the famous and popular model “Sally Slipstitch”. In mechanical drawing classes future engineers sought skills in basic construction and design. After gaining a working knowledge of the tools, the boys learned to prepare neat and accurate blueprints. Art classes supplied opportunities for creative ex¬ pression. The art room facilities enabled students to draw, paint, sculpture, or construct. The annual Christmas project was the designing of ornaments for the Christmas trees decking the halls. P. Drescher, at the blueprinting machine, and P. Nickel, compass in hand, finish mechanical drawing tasks.

Lockey congratulates Booster Club sponsor, Mr. John Mybeck, and president, Walter Wood, on winning the sportsmanship trophy. Through the combined efforts of Clark’s team, cheerleaders, faculty, a nd student body, the Pio¬ neers have proven that they are loyal boosters. In recognition of this school spirit and sense of fair play, Clark has been selected twice to receive the Sportsmanship Trophy. This distinction has espec¬ ially satisfied our Principal, Mr. D. D. Lockey. Pleas¬ ing Clarkites more than the trophy was Mr. Lockey’s proud smile when he accepted it. The presence of these trophies in our school should be a constant reminder that the whole-heart¬ ed backing of the student body is a necessary factor in any team’s success. In future years, the scores for our games will be remembered by few people, but the school spirit of the Pioneers will be remembered by everyone. Are you sure you are ready for the future? If this question plagues you, the answer lies in the guidance department. The great increase in enrollment has made the expanding of the guidance department compulsory. The list of counselors now includes: Mr. Arnold Corder, seniors and boys’; Miss Edna Howe, juniors and girls’; Mr. Raymond Buell, sophomores and attendance; and Mr. Edwin Martin, freshmen. These guidance directors steered students through their hectic high school days and on to their goals. Charlene Salle, bookkeeper; Linda Hatfield, office worker; Mrs. Laura Carlson, Mr. Lockey’s secretary; and Mr. Lockey, Principal, keep the office and school running smoothly as one efficient educational unit. 38 Two of the Faculty Become New Counselors ARNOLD CORDER . . .

The 1963-1964 school year initiated a new figure into the Hammond Public School System. Mr. Joseph Hendrick became the new Superintendent of Schools, taking the place of Mr. R. B. Miller, who retired last year. Mr. Hendrick spent most of his career teaching in the Eastern sector of our country. He attended William and Mary College then, did his graduate work at the University of Richmond. Later he re¬ ceived his Ph. D. from Harvard University. Prior to his newest position, Mr. Hendrick was the Assis¬ tant Superintendent of Schools in Ossing, New York. On arriving in Hammond, the new Superinten¬ dent brought with him the goal of making the Hammond School System one of the best in the entire country. In co-operation with the Board of Education, the Superintendent worked diligently to perfect many ideas which he would like to see in operation. Already he has succeeded in putting lan¬ guage laboratories in the Hammond high schools. Future plans call for the construction of a high school in the Munster area. Under the vigorous leadership of Mr. Joseph Hendrick, the Hammond School System may be well assured of an active future. They Led Us Wisely, and Taught Us Well EMERSON ALDRICH . . . B.S., M.S., . . .

Bill Dalton, Don Kauchak, and Tim Forbes, were selected as finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program. The recipient of the Elizabeth Lyle Memorial Award for outstanding work in the field of biology was Rosemary Duhon. Rosie’s active interest in this field made her a likely candidate to honor the former Clark faculty member. Seniors Bill Dalton, Don Kauchak, and Tim Forbes, were selected as finalists in the annual National Merit Scholarship competition. Final finalists were chosen by a special committee on the basis of PSAT scores, rank in class, leadership, and citizenship. The scholarship program’s purpose is to encourage the nursuit of intellectual attainment. The Rotary Club is an organization composed of teachers and businessmen. Each year they select eight boys from every Hammond Public School who attend the monthly lunch " on meetings alternately. After the business meeting, the boys hear an in¬ teresting speaker. In general, the ideals of fair play in business are discussed and stressed. JUNIOR ROTARIANS—CLOCKWISE: P. Dzurilla, K. Hannon, D. Kauchak, T. Snider, J. Fech, G. Terranova, D. Burk, B. Dalton. 44 Fine Accomplishments The 1964 Bausch and Lomb Science Award was presented to Linda Hric for her consistently high level of achievement in biology, physics, and chem¬ istry. Over and above the usual recognition given, Linda became eligible for a scholarship competition intended for the University of Rochester which is located in New York State. High scorer on a competitive home economics test, Carol Balog was chosen as the Betty Crocker Future Homemaker of the Year. This honor entitled Carol to compete further with the other high school future homemaker award-winners throughout the entire state of Indiana. Mary Boswell was chosen by the faculty and fellow seniors to receive the Daughters of the American Revolution Award. As a result of this vote of confidence, Mary was required to submit an essay to the DAR association on American citizenship and government. The 1964 Bausch and Lomb Science Award was given to Senior Linda Hric for her outstanding work. 45 The Class of 1964 Watches the Year Fade; Marcia Gaughan seized first place honors in the Senior Class with her 3.90 scholastic average. She gave her valedictorian’s address during the Com¬ mencement exercises June 11. Marcia plans to attend Ball State Teachers ' College in Muncie, Indiana, as a language major. Mary Boswell took possession of second place honors in the Senior Class with her 3.75 scholastic average. She gave her salutatorian’s address during the Commencement exercises June 11. Mary plans to attend Colorado College or the University of Colo¬ rado as a psychology major. The theme of the 1963 Homecoming parade was “children’s fairy tales,” and was limited to cars. The Senior Class came through with a unique ver¬ sion of “Little Jack Horner”—“Little George Hor¬ ner.” The Kleenex-flowered car was awarded the third place ribbon in the competition. The Class of 1964, numbering 215, has had much to be proud of in the four years of its high school life. From yell contests, to National Merit Scholar¬ ship winners, to honor students, the seniors gave their “all” in producing results which will be re¬ membered for a favorable length of time. Carolyn Jancik, the Senior Class’s own “football player” proudly rides in the class car “Little George Horner” which captured third place in the Homecoming parade. For compiling the second highest grade average in the Senior Class, Mary Boswell was named salutatorian. Marcia Gaughan was named the valedictorian of the Senior Class for her high scholastic merits. 46 Waits for Graduation The first major undertaking of the Senior Class in its final year at G.R.C. was to elect its class officers. The results of the September 30 election found Don Kauchak presiding as president, Charlie Wolf representing the class as vice-president. Hank Strand undertaking the task of treasurer, and Joann Smigla recording the minutes. College Day gave the seniors an opportunity to obtain information about the twenty-seven different colleges that were represented. Attempts were made to explain problems and to answer questions. The last dance to be given by the Class of 1964 was entitled “Holiday Magic”. Highlighting the pre- Christmas dance was the announcement of the Sen¬ ior King and Queen. Their majesties Tom Zygmunt and Lorraine Noworyta were chosen for the honor. Winning the Yell Contest for the second straight year, placing third in the Homecoming parade, and putting on a skit were the highlights of Home¬ coming to all seniors. Finally, with the ordering of name cards and announcements, the planning of the senior banquet, and the choosing of scholarship and award winners, seniors realized the nearness of graduation. Seniors Tom Zygmunt and Lorraine Noworyta smile regally as President Don Kauchak congratulates them on their election to King and Queen of the class dance. CLASS OFFICERS: D. Kauchak, C. Wolf, J. Smigla, H. Strand, and Mr. Franklin, and Mrs. Dunham, sponsors. College-bound seniors sit engrossed while a representative informs them about housing and entrance applications.

After the selection of officers, the class of 1965 began work on a decorated car which won the second place ribbon in the Homecoming parade. Also a success, the class dance held on January 31 was dubbed “Mid-Term Mash.” During the weeks of rehearsals for Meet Me in St. Louis, the Juniors fused into a single co-operative unit and were rewarded with thunderous applause after both performances. The climax of the year’s efforts was the prom, held at the Scherwood Country Club, Schererville, Indiana, on May twenty eighth. a AM 9 jL 923 a ik A O a $9 P H . s o $ c % m t a AM O r % 2St9 1 a p 2 ®? a f 60 Jack Adley Bruce Allison Frances Ambrose Mary Ashcraft Kathy Avery Burdette Banik Paul Banik Linda Baranowski Barbara Barr Timothy Beaudrie Judy Beegle Henry Beitler Mary Benko Kathy Best Tom Blazek Mary Ann Bobowski Sandy Bognar Phyllis Bojda Barbara Boncela Linda Boyer Nancy Bragiel Douglas Brown George Brown Nick Bubnovich Barbara Bugajski Judy Burkat Jim Busch Jim Bzibziak Jim Carnahan Diane Carros Jeri Carpenter Joan Carpenter Nancy Cervone Marilyn Chilla John Cichon Marilyn Cison Claudia Clark Pat Clark Allan Clements Paul Companik Jo Ann Conrad Rich Crouch “Mid-Term Mash ” “Meet Me in St. Louis” James Csigas Frank Czechanski Nancy Dafcik Marge DeChantal Dennis Dijak Phil Drescher Richard Dudzik Rosie Duhon Bonita Dvorscak Laura Dybell Andy Dzurovcik Geri Dzurovcik Jack Enright Debbie Etter Marilynn Fauth Ben Ferko Vickie Filas Kay Fitzpatrick Kathy Flaris Larry Fuchs Nancy Fuller Richard Gajdos Susan Garza Mike Gerenda Carol Girski Pat Golembiewski Susan Gonsiorowski Nancy Gora Stella Grabara Nancy Greskovich Sharon Gross Gary Gurevitz Bill Haddad Lynn Halik Sharon Harangody Jim Harbin Bob Harper Sue Harris Bob Hatczel Kenneth Hayes Mike Hein Dora Hernandez Bonnie Hicko Phyllis Hmurovic Ken Holman Richard Holmes Linda Holt Kathleen Homak Peter Hryniowiecki Holly Humphreys Helene Jacewicz Mary Jakuboski Diana Janik Tom Janik Ethel Jansak Richard Joye Jim Juricic Jerry Kaminsky Joel Kaplan Sandra Kasper Diana Keister Ted Killian Dennis King 61 2nd Place in Homecoming Parade Prom Q jji 2P 2 ' M o V„- m Q • ?

The Sophomore Class began its second year by placing first in the Homecoming parade with their colorful float “Peter, Peter.” After selecting their ring style with much antici¬ pation, the Class of ’66 proudly displayed their treasure in the latter part of January. Then, “In a crazy little shack beyond the tracks” the Sophomore Class sponsored the dance, “Sugar Shack Shamble.” It proved to be a financial success. They concluded the year’s activities by beginning preparations for the Junior Prom.

The first major activity the class participated in was Homecoming. Pat Dado regally represented her classmates in the Queen’s court. The next important undertaking was the election of class officers. Soon after, committees organized to discuss plans for their first class dance. After experiencing the excitement of high school activities, the freshmen eagerly looked forward to three more active years. © A 9 rs o mm r 9 w It © ' T 1 c O 9 Am 2 0 Sir a rs. mA m , v A y m a p $ % ps nn w mm a. w A 4 -Jar m .V ' jm i f). f] Don Abercrombie Iris Allsbury Jerry Ambrose Rich Bailey Catherine Bajda Robert Bajda Jean Bangert Rich Bartochowski Linda Beard Linda Beeson Sharon Bellovich Robin Best Diana Beyer Dawn Brenner Janet Brown Joey Brown Ron Burr Jack Buehler Carol Ann Cerajewski Nancy Chapek Cindy Chariton James Charnago Paulette Chomo Bev Chovanec Louise Clark Brian Cornelison Charlotte Crowel Janet Cyborski Pat Dado Charles Day Danny DeLuna Kathy Demas Mary Beth Dembowski Ronald Derybowski Bill Domasica Phylis Dooley Connie Dostatni John Dubich Beverly Duhon Mary Duhon Kenneth Dziadosz Linda Dzurilla 68 Erickson Chosen to Sponsor Class of 1967 Jane Ehlers Kathy Enright Paul Entrop Linda Falaschetti Matt Ferrara Ed Ferry Ray Ferry d ? cs A. £ tH Karen Foster Michele Franciski Tom Funchik Jerry Gaughan Becky Gootee (S v a ft Michael Gross Tom Guzek Bonnie Hacker Bill Halliar Robert Hanchar Marjorie Hardesty Nora Harris Karen Hayes Virginia Hearne Paul Hegedus James Hetzel Wendy Hickman Scott Hicko Dave Hill Denis Holmes Barry Holt Mildred Hrabovski Mary Ann Jacewicz Robert Jamrose Valerie Johnson Cynthia Jurbala Marianne Kacmarik Suzanne Kacocha Robert Kelderman Pat Kew Peggy Kilburn Jack King Joyce King Janis Kitka Sandra Koroluk Linda Kottka Richard Koval Diana Kroll Jerome Kruczek Carolyn Kukta O r. • (■ © i w mM a 4: as ft ft 2. §ft 9 9 Mike Leland Jerry Lenz Jeanne Lesar Dave Lilly Andrea Lucas Susan Macocha Marianne Masura i.

The assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy on Friday, November 22, 1968, was unpredictable. It was indeed the greatest tragedy many of us have ever witnessed. Probably, a greater tragedy no one ever will witness. World leaders—past and present—have already expressed momentous views on Mr. Kennedy’s death. I hope my speech will not sound superfluous. The deaths of such Presidents as Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, and William Mc¬ Kinley strongly affected the American people. If we, the youth of America, had been alive when these great leaders died, we also would have experienced a great sorrow. Now today, just such grief is magnified tenfold in the heart of every youth in this na¬ tion; for President Kennedy—43 when he was elected and 46 when he died—was, in a sense, our President. He exemplified the vitality idolized by youth. President Kennedy also succeeded in being the champion of parents and grandparents. All America, rather all the world, consequently mourns his death with deepest possible sorrow. A bitter lesson everyone can learn at the expense of so great a human being. Shocked at the news of the President’s assassination, I sat in my sixth-period class Fri¬ day. A singular sound caught my attention. It was the school clock ticking away the solemn minutes of eternity. I thought to myself, “God, it’s funny. One of the most prom¬ inent figures in world history has just died and yet time won’t pause a split second in reverence to him.” Within hours after Kennedy’s death, we had a new President. This procedure did not signify that another could easily take John F. Kennedy’s place. Rather America had to lift up its head and live on without his guidance. As citizens, we must fight to preserve the liberties and ideals for which he died; as a nation, we must strive to secure these rights for other countries. Our first gesture toward him, however, must be the preserva¬ tion of an era—The New Frontier. I sincerely hope that the death of so great a man will not be tossed aside by anyone as an event of little significance. Only by remembering the death of President John Fitz¬ gerald Kennedy will America endure as the world leader. And I pray with all my soul that the lives of American citizens will be guided by seventeen unforgettable words: “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” 72 IN ME MORI AM—John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th President of the United States. Born May 29, 1917, assassinated November 22, 1963. President Kennedy ' was a symbol of freedom all over the world. Let us hope that his loss will unite people every¬ where in freedom’s cause. Council Initiates Student Review Board and Junior Chuck Semchuck points out the permanent “up and down” stairway signs to Junior Marilyn Cison. Clark’s Student Council, sponsored by Mr. Buell, is the government of the student body. Its purpose is expressed in the Preamble to the Constitution of Clark High School. That purpose is, “to provide a forum for the discussion of questions of interest to the student body and to create and maintain stand¬ ards of good conduct and citizenship among the students.” This purpose was excellently fulfilled by this year’s student council. In addition to its stated purpose, the council per¬ formed many services. Council members raised and lowered the flag daily. The policy of flying a battle flag before any athletic event was also initiated. The council issued a second student directory, re¬ installed one-way stairways, expanded intramural sports, sponsored a dance, entered a car in the home¬ coming parade, and elected new officers. One of th e council’s major projects was the incep¬ tion of a student review board. The board’s first duty was to enforce a set of dance codes. Credit is due the officers, cabinet, and representatives. STUDENT COUNCIL OF- FICERS AND CABINET MEMBERS—FRONT ROW: R. Vater, D. Dubich, M. Toops. SECOND ROW: K. Kantow- ski, K. Bryant, K. Hannon.

National Honor Society Undergoes Changes The National Honor Society became an active organization for the first time in Clark’s history. In past years the society had been strictly an honorary group. The officers of the 1963-1964 society were Kent Hannon, president; Phil Dzurilla, vice-president; and Mary Toops, secretary. The most important program set up by the society was the system of student to student tutor¬ ing. Willing pupils needing assistance were coached during free periods, study halls, and lunch hours. A system of hall monitoring was also set up. Many of the monitors helped direct adults on College Day and at the P.T.A. Open House, in addition to their daily duties. When the P.S.A.T. and S.A.T. were given, it was the National Honor Society that help¬ ed set up chairs and tables. As a community project, members volunteered to give up study halls on March 13 to collect for Channel 11. Mr. Corder, sponsor of the society, hopes that the group will serve the school and community even more in the future. Clark’s Thespian troupe 1769, twelve strong and led by Miss Jeani Knapp, spent an active year. Many of the troupe’s members made use of their experience and knowledge by assiting in the direc¬ tion and production of the Junior Class play. The prop, light, production, and make-up crews had at least one experienced Thespian among their mem¬ bers. As usual, the Thespians sponsored the annual all-school play.

The first duty of the band was the presentation of precision marching programs at home football games during half-time. To achieve perfected routines, members usually practiced detailed steps during fourth hour on the playground. In January the band presented its annual Winter Concert featuring the first movement of “Second Symphony” by Borodin and “Prairie Overture” by Ward. The Spring Concert later featured the tra¬ ditional presentation of the keys to the graduating members, and a special gold key to the Most Valuable Player. The Pep Band, a small ensemble consisting main¬ ly of upperclass musicians, performed at pep ses¬ sions. They also provided spirited music and needed morale boosting at home basketball games. The majorettes and pom-pon girls worked dili¬ gently on their half-time shows in co-operation with the band at home football games. Highlighting the basketball season was their Christmas routine.

The orchestra’s Winter Concert, in memory of the late President, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, cover¬ ed the Early Baroque to Late Baroque periods of music. The highlight of the program was Angelo Corelli’s “Christmas Concerto.” The Spring Concert covered music ranging from the Early Romantic period to the Twentieth Century. One of the smallest, most select groups in Clark’s Music Department is the Madrigals. Without ex¬ ception, the eleven members have been active. In December the group sang for the Lutheran Ladies’ Aid Society. They were also a featured en¬ semble in both the Winter and Spring Concerts. The Madrigals sang not only the intricate “madri¬ gals” which gave the group its name, but included in their repertoire chamber music, folk songs, and the inevitable Church music—both Liturgical and Mr. Darrell (.)

Immediately following the assembly, the Concert Choir caroled at the First Bank of Whiting. The entire department gave its annual Winter Concert the week following the Christmas recess. Selections for the program were from a wide range of choral literature, including both popular and serious music. The Concert Choir sang portions of a new contemporary cantata, Hodie Christus Natus Est. The Choir was accom¬ panied by Tom Snider, Tim Forbes, and Charles Turpin, trumpeters from the band; and Mary Rud- ser, pianist for the Concert Choir. Highlighting the Choirs was the Shoivboat Se¬ lection which featured Helen Stecy, soloist; the Girls’ Choir; and the Concert Choir in selections which were staged with lighting effects by Miss Jeani Knapp. The Music Department was the first organization to use the new lighting panel. Other selections were Alice Blue Gown by the Girls’ Chor¬ us, which was staged with twinkling lights and a blue background; and In Heavenly Love Abiding, a number written especially for the Girls’ Chorus by Mr. Church, Director. The Girls’ Choir sang the popular number I Be¬ lieve, Evensong, Blessed Jesu, and one selection from Four Sacred Songs for the Night. This choir also sang at the Community Center for the Whiting Women’s Club during the first semester, and jour¬ neyed to Gavit High School to sing for the Gavit Girls’ Chorus. The choir had several visitors this year including teachers, student teachers, and for¬ mer students. This chorus operated on a different schedule started last year—some met three times a week, while others met twice a week. Both groups then rehearsed as a unit after school when concerts were scheduled. The Concert Choir sponsored Gavit’s Choir at an assembly exchange concert. In April the Concert Choir journeyed to Gavit to return their visit. They also arranged a program by Kansas City’s University of Missouri Choir in April. Winding up the year, the Choirs participated in the annual city music festival which was held in early May. CONCERT CHOIR—FRONT ROW: P. Bachi, R. Duhon, B. Krall, K. McCutcheon, B. Vaughn, P.

They participated in all concerts during the school year, journeyed to the Great Lakes Naval Hospital during the Christmas vacation to entertain patients, and also performed for the Whiting Emblem Club. The repertoire for the group was of a more enter¬ taining nature, as basically this group was formed with girls of like voices to perform music of this type. The Triple Trio did not meet on school time. Also participating in the Holiday programs was the Boys’ Chorus. Although the first semester group was small, membership more than doubled for the second semester. This enlarged group of multi¬ grade males gathered together three mornings a week to rehearse their catalogue of both serious and popular choral literature.

Mr. Church, L. Shifflet, S. Wright, B. Kelderman, J. 85 President Carolyn Zrenchik and Secretary Mary Ann Kekich listen intently as Mrs. Byer discusses her lecture with them for approval. She informed the club about the business forms used at Northern Indiana Public Service Company. The Future Secretaries Club, under the super¬ vision of Miss Joan Coughlan, endeavored to expand the girls’ knowledge of the varied secretarial fields. The club brought into focus the many responsibili¬ ties and experiences of the secretary. During monthly meetings members listened to speakers of the business world. These speakers emphasized the significance of good grooming, ef¬ ficiency, and a pleasing personality. They also in¬ formed the girls of the procedures of seeking, applying for, and maintaining a job. A personal touch was given to some of the meet¬ ings by former Clark students who now have secretarial jobs. These alumnae explained their ex¬ periences in applying for jobs, their daily routine once they were accepted, and the varied types of fringe benefits. By receiving a monthly magazine, TODAY’S SECRETARY, the girls learned a little more about the different types of secretarial fields. This maga¬ zine provided stories and crossword puzzles in shorthand; daily typing tests; and a vocabulary of technical, literary, and religious terms. Girls interested in the business world acquired a deeper and wider perspective in to their careers as members of the Future Secretaries of America.

This requirement decreased the size of the group as compared to former years. The smaller membership made learning easier and more fun as the group indulged in new projects. During the year the members completed many interesting projects, such as: analyzing and study¬ ing rocks, classifying shells, and typing blood. New aquariums containing unusual varieties of tropical fish were also started by the aspiring biologists. The new co-sponsors of the Biology Club were Miss Wanda Wilharm and Mr. Edward Powell. “Where can I find . .or “Are there any reserved books left?” are familiar queries asked of Miss Lake’s assistants, members of the Library Club, as they perform their duty of helping Clark students use the school library more effectively. When a student needs help in researching for a term paper or in locating a good book, a member of the Library Club is on hand and anxious to help. Other services provided by the future librarians include the sort¬ ing and shelving of books and the decorating of the library Christmas tree. For recreation the Library Club enjoys an annual spring picnic. Clubs Spark Members Kathy Gregorovich and Janet Duncan assist their class¬ mates as part of their library duties.

Taking place during activity period, the monthly meetings acquired a new and interesting aspect with the addition of bingo and scrabble to the usual cur¬ riculum. The highlight of their March meeting was a guest speaker, Mr. Bartley Brown, from the Public Relations Department of the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company. Mr. Brown spoke about the historical background of South America and expressed his views on keeping that part of the hemisphere free. One of the first group projects undertaken by the club was a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry where they acquainted themselves with the customs of a Mexican Christmas. The Spanish Club ended their diligent year by sponsoring a dance in the early part of May. All of the proceeds from this money-making project were applied toward the purchase of an air con¬ ditioner for the new language laboratory. Selective membership was so successful that the procedure will be followed in future years. There has been a change of pace initiated at the Spanish Club’s meetings—the “matadors” now attack the bulls! SPANISH CLUB—FRONT ROW: B. Bukvich, C. Bajda, D. Dickey, B. Vaughan,-Pres., J.

One group was made up of first-year students, and the other was composed of second and third-year stu¬ dents. The freshmen club met each second Wed¬ nesday during activity period, while the advanced club met every third Wednesday. The main pui’pose of the club was to give its members the opportunity of studying the customs, traditions, background, and, of course, language of the German people. Club meetings included lan¬ guage games, songs, movies, and reports. Language games were especially helpful because they forced the students to use the German language and at the same time provided enjoyment. Early in the school year several of the members attended a language seminar at Loyola University where German exhibits were on display. In Decem¬ ber both groups combined their efforts to hold a festive Christmas party during which the new first-year members were initiated into the club. The club’s activities were under the supervision of Mrs. Renate Miller, who has been a Clark faculty member for two years. Students enjoy playing the German version of “Old Maid” for its recreational and educational merits. GERMAN CLUB—FRONT ROW: M. Kacmarik, C. Sluka, L. Radloff, M. Duhon, L. Taylor, T. Beaudrie, M.

Surging Membership Occasions Readjustment The Latin Club was divided this year into a first year club for freshmen and an advanced club for the remaining members. At the annual Saturnalia, or Christmas Party, freshmen members were required to stage a talent show as part of their initiation. The advanced club awarded prizes for the three best showings. The frosh were put on the auction block at the slave sale in January. Each slave made a poster listing his good and bad points, and his health. When the slaves were purchased, they were obli¬ gated to work under their masters carrying books, doing odd jobs, running errands, and anything else an owner could devise. This activity brought the club its chief source of income for the entire year and completed the frosh’s initiation. Other activities under the able leadership of Mrs. Lillian Wilcox included the club banquet, the bake sale for the Latin classes, and the traditional “Olympic Games.” The monthly meetings of the club enabled its members to become better acquainted with Ancient Roman culture. The group also gained the knack of playing American games with a Roman flare. Sophomores Jim Navta and Mary Westcott “whip” their freshmen “slaves” into docile submission. 90 FRENCH CLUB—FRONT ROW: C. Chariton, M. Gaughan, R. Ihnat-treas., M. L. Jamrose-sec., S.

Smells of “French Pastry ” Permeate Halls “Parlons Francais!” “Let’s speak French” is a familiar phrase echoed among the enthusiastic parti¬ cipants of Clark’s French Club. The group, com¬ posed of sixteen second-year students and twelve first-year students, began its activities by electing new officers. Acting as this year’s president was Sharon Gross. Serving under her were Sharon Gran¬ ger, vice-president; Mary Lou Jamrose, secretary; and Rosemarie Ihnat, treasurer. After various money-making projects were dis¬ cussed, the club decided to sponsor a bake sale which proved to be a tremendous success financially. During gatherings, the club joined in various games such as Allez-Op, a form of bingo. A fasci¬ nating film based on French life was reserved for the group. The film portrayed a variety of customs and traditions of the French people. Several members traveled to the Annual French Dinner at Bishop Noll, toured the language labs, and obtained ideas for future use. In the spring members attended a dinner party in downtown Chicago. Mrs. Renate Miller, head of both French and German departments, is the sponsor. A “Ski in France” poster appeals to the club officers Sharon Granger, Rosie Ihnat, Sharon Gross, and Mary Lou Jamrose. 91 Y-Teens Further Fellowships and Faiths “To build a fellowship of women and girls devoted to the task of realizing in our common life those ideals of personal and social living to which we are committed by our faith as Christians”; this is the creed of the Y-Teens, the high school branch of the Young Women’s Christian Association. The purpose of the group is to bond all girls of all races and all religions in mutual friendship. The Freshmen and Sophomore Y-Teen groups were under the direction of Miss Marion Johnston and Miss Carol Krupa, respectively. The Junior- Senior group was under the direction of Mrs. Doris Snider. All groups met during activity period on their specified Wednesdays. The programs included group activities, films, panel discussions, and spe¬ cial guest speakers. The major money-making project was the annual potato chip sale. Part of the money raised was used to send Bev Jackson and Lorraine Noworyta to a Summer Y-Teens Conference. Continuing last year’s project, the Junior-Senior group helped sponsor a party at the Carmelite Home. JR.-SR. OFFICERS—L. Gurevitz, treasurer; B. Jackson, Vice-President; M. A.

Lattak, T. Hovanec, B. Madsen, E. Roszkowski, M. Ferrara, G. Hayes, T. Whiteside, D. Kocis. Freshman Tom Whiteside speaks to the members of the club. Ann Arbor, Michigan was the place, and 1876 was the year when the high school organization called the Young Men’s Christian Association was formed. The name was changed to “Hi-Y” in 1911. The first national manual, issued in 1927, stated its purpose as “the religious, social, and physical development of young men.” Members strove to ex¬ hibit this Christian character in all activities. Clark’s chapter was divided into two groups. The twenty members in the Junior-Senior group were led by J. Fech, president; B. Smith, chaplain; T. Mullins, treasurer; K. Hannon, secretary; D. Burk, v. president; J. Smolek, program chairman; and D. Bangert, sergeant-at-arms. The twenty-one members of the Frosh-Soph group were led by C. Day, president; D. Whitten, v. president; R. Warner, treasurer; T. Whiteside, chaplain; and D. Deluna, secretary. Activities included the coat checking and conces¬ sion duties at all school dances, and the distribu¬ tion of an Easter basket to a needy Hammond family. For the fourth straight year the club cap¬ tured the city basketball championship. The sponsors of the two groups were Mr. Oral Watkins, and Mr. Paul Wilkinson. War Movie Raises Funds for Unfortunates Representatives Carole Kirk and John Buckner investigate the minutes of past meetings and the financial report. The high school Red Cross is an organization that believes in “service to others.” It is an all-school organization with a “council” consisting of one rep¬ resentative member nominated and elected from each high school and junior high school homeroom. Some of the club’s projects were overseas gift chests to unfortunate countries, as well as indivi¬ dual gift boxes for their children; food baskets and good cheer gifts. Articles needed by the Beatty Memorial Hospital and Veteran’s hospitals are both made and purchased with the funds raised from the annual movie shown at a twenty-five cent cost to the student. This year’s film was a war picture entitled, “Men of the Fighting Lady.” There was offered a “volunteers” program for both boys and girls sixteen years old and older wishing to donate their services to local hospitals by working several hours a week. Presiding over the club as officers were: Janet Duncan, president; Leonard Shifflett, vice-presi¬ dent; Mary Ann Bobowski, secretary; and John Buckner, treasurer. RED CROSS—FRONT ROW: L. Shifflet, J.

This club offered an opportunity to the one hundred fifty-five girls who were interested in medical professions to study the various fields. At the regular monthly meetings films were shown on such topics as: the Peace Corps, the life of a student nurse, the care of the mentally ill, the history of the Red Cross, and the training of nurses on a junior college level. A guest speaker, Doris I. Thompson, Capt., USAR, informed the club mem¬ bers about military nursing. The Nurses’ Club officers were elected from those Senior girls who were definitely planning to choose nursing as a career. These girls were also given the opportunity to apply for an eight hundred dollar nursing scholarship to be awarded by the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Beta Gamma Upsilon Sorority. Girls whose fathers were employed by Inland Steel could also apply for an Inland scholarship. This year the members voted to have the Nurses’ Club chartered into the National Organization of Future Nurses’ Clubs. Senior Eugene Udycz is required to register with assistant Diane Carros before seeing the nurse. THE NURSES’ CLUB The flash bulb and the camera click are familiar parts of every activity at Clark. The members of the Photography Club seem to be everywhere recording scenes and faces for posterity. During the school year, literally hundreds of pictures are taken and developed in the photo lab just off Room 223. In addition to preparing photographs for school use, the club processes many rolls of film for students and faculty members. Taking pictures is only the first act in the drama of photography. It is in the darkroom that the most exciting work is done. The negatives must be care¬ fully developed and dried. Then come the enlarging lenses, lights, silvered paper and chemicals. The result of all of this are photos for the yearbook, the newspaper, publicity and wallet collection. Par¬ ticularly fine pictures are mounted and hung in classrooms and halls to record times and faces for future students. Clark’s Photography Club is now in its fifteenth year. Several cameras, darkroom equipment, and Mr. Erickson are permanent fixtures. Over the years membership could be counted in the hundreds. “Smile, You’re on Clark’s Candid Camera!” PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB-FRONT ROW: B. Kussy, R. Sandrick, S. Kalwinski, T. Stiller, C. Farrell, P.

Sponsor The Audio-Visual Operators’ Club, under the direction of Mr. Thomas, includes about seventy members, females prohibited. The club provides such services to the school as running movies, providing music for school dances, making an¬ nouncements over the P.A. system, and being handy when a distraught boy comes running down the hall crying, “The projector in our room won’t work!” The club was originally started by Mr. Wilkinson who handed his post over to Mr. Thomas this year after ten years of devoted service. Meetings are held twice a month at which the members review the care and safety of handling the A.V.O. equipment. The club has organized many projects this past year. Their main objective is to try and get new A.V.O. equipment for the school and to keep old equipment in good condition. Socially, the A.V.O. sponsored a dance in January entitled, “A Spot of Sunshine.” This dance proved to be a real boost to the club treasury. Knowledge and skill combine to produce an essential unit in present day education and entertainment. A.V.O. member, Allan Clements explains the intricate workings of a film projector to Ed Ciesar. Future Teachers Learn through Cadet Work The Future Teachers of America has a two-fold purpose at Clark. First, it provides an opportunity for sophomores, juniors, and seniors to find out about careers in teaching. Second, it is a service organization providing needed student assistance. The club co-operates with the P.T.A. during Education Week Open House and the Food Fair. Upperclassmen may also make arrangements to participate more directly by working with elemen¬ tary teachers through cadet teaching assignments. The entire group benefits from talks with student teachers assigned to Clark. These young men and women are able to provide first-hand information about college requirements and teacher preparation. Members must maintain a C average and have at least sophomore class status. They also are encour¬ aged to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities to develop a wide range of interests. Meetings are not scheduled regularly. The major event of the year is the spring ban¬ quet honoring the club’s graduating seniors. F.T.A.—FRONT ROW: B. Leslie, S. Offredo, M. Kew, C. Masura, B.

Screams, yells, cheers, and tears are all part of being a member of Clark’s active Booster Club. Membership cards and buttons were given to each of the 500 members on the payment of dues. The club promoted a new policy—that of boosting ALL school activities. Each month different mem¬ bers were chosen for the pep committee to make signs which publicized future games and activities sponsored by other groups. The club also sponsored buses, for members only, to away games. Clark’s card section received so much recognition at the sectionals last year that it was decided to feature the block again this year. Stressing and striving for sportsmanship and character, the club, through the efforts of sponsors Miss Jeani Knapp and Mr. John Mybeck, won the sportsmanship trophy for Clark at the 1963 basket¬ ball sectional tournament. Clark is the only school to have captured the trophy twice. It is no wonder that the cheers ring out, “We will back you with all our might!” “Cards down, now!” to perfect the routines to be used at the 1964 Sectional Tournament in East Chicago.

Wisemiller, G. Kol, C. Mazur, M. Hawkins, V. Gonsiorowski, B. Reid, A small all-female group of conscientious and creative students constitutes the Literary Club sec¬ tion of Clark’s extracurricular activities. The club, sponsored by Miss Carolyn Lambert, is designed to spark the students’ interest in the finer arts and develop their cultural background. Bi-monthly meetings provide not only the oppor¬ tunity to broaden the group’s knowledge of both humorous and dramatic interpretations, but also stresses the importance of literary treasurers. At these meetings, the use of the tape recorder aided in the development of articulate speech. Poetry was critically analyzed according to rhyme and structure. Serving as this year’s president was Mary Beth McLaughlin. Aiding her were Frances Ambrose and Alexa Winsberg as vice-president and secretary- treasurer respectively. High on their list of planned activities was a trip to the Chicago Loop to see a musical stage play. The club was the perfect solution to satisfying any student’s literary desires. Members found that reading without pressure brought more enjoyment. T. Jancik, B. Finnegan. THIRD ROW: C. Clark, J. Conrad, P. Perdock, J. Rokita, P. Popovich, M. Conway, J. Pisowicz, M. L.

Forum Club Brings a Hootenanny to Clark The Forum Club, under the direction of Mr. Charlet and Mr. Heslin, blazed trails of success. Under the able leadership of both officers and sponsors, the club swelled to 180 members, a phenomenal number for its short existence. The club’s first venture was a two-day jaunt to Springfield, Illinois, to see the Capitol Building and reminders of the “Land of Lincoln.” A notable achievement was a novel financial project. Through the efforts of the hard-working members, an authentic Hootenanny was presented on November 10. The financial rewards placed second only to the enthusiasm with which the pro¬ gram was accepted. With the Hootenanny profits, the members adopt¬ ed a South Vietnamese orphan, Huynh Ngoc Nga. Nga was provided with enough money to live well and be properly educated for an entire year. This unselfish endeavor was a source of pride and accom¬ plishment. In December the group chartered a bus to Purdue Extension to hear Mr. Philip Deane, Director, U.N. Information Center. At this discussion the students got the chance to witness “bigots at work.” In February two busloads of members journeyed to the Melody Lane Restaurant for dinner and then to the Shubert Theater to see “How to Succeed in FORUM CLUB OFFICERS—T. Jez, vice-president; L. Gurevitz, secretary-treasurer; H. Strand, president; Mr. Heslin and Mr. Charlet, sponsors. Business Without Really Trying.” The proceeds of a second Hootenanny were do¬ nated to the Hayward Memorial Scholarship Fund. THE FORUM CLUB 101 “Silent ” Force Behind Clark Performances Bob Smith, a hardworking member of Stage Crew, applies the finishing touches to a “flat” for an up-coming play. The Stage Crew, under the direction of Miss Jeani Knapp, had a busy year. The twenty-five members found themselves busy learning about lighting techniques, make-up, props, and many other details that make a show run smoothly. Their first major venture was the Junior Class play, Meet Me in St. Louis. During rehearsals they formed lighting, sound, make-up, and curtain crews. Special crews were organized for sets and personal properties. The crew, in preparing sets for this play, built a fireplace that will be kept for future use. The newly installed lightboard has tremendously improved the lighting system in the auditorium and has made the work of the light crew much more efficient and effective. The Stage Crew worked the lights and curtains for the band, orchestra, and vocal concerts. Besides these extracurricular responsibilities, the members handled all the assemblies. The members had a mem¬ orable year, for their work was far reaching and well done. STAGE CREW—FRONT ROW: M. Wisniewski, T. Forbes, L. Leimbach, D. Winner, L. Ogren, M. Westcott, J. Duncan, K.

All through the year, writers could be seen run¬ ning down the halls trying to find stories, and the page editors could be seen running down the halls trying to find their writers. Despite ripped stencils and deadline rushes, the Pioneer News never failed to appear on Friday morning. Each of the staff members, from the paperfolder to the hard-working editor-in-chief, had a definite job essential to the weekly publication. The award-winning paper completed its thirty-first consecutive year. A pictorial Christmas issue, an April Fools’ Day issue, and the senior edition highlighted the school year. Four pages of famous paintings and articles appeared in the Christmas issue, courtesy of Mrs. Gates’ composition classes. Clark’s Pioneer News, a member of the National Scholastic Press Association, the Indiana High School Press Association, the Columbia University Scholastic Press, and the Quill and Scroll Society, was sponsored by Mr. George Muir. Production staff members, Janellen Stipulin, John Golem- machine while Laurie Gurevitz, production editor, and Tom biewski, and Ken Kantowski, prepare the mimeograph Jez, production staff, “cut a headline” for the Pioneer News. 103 Features editor Cathi Tokarz and her sister Sandy examine a stack of newly printed newspapers for errors. Responsible for the weekly Pioneer News were Kathy Dubich, editor; A1 Berger, assistant editor; Mr. Muir, sponsor. Qualified typists for the Pioneer " News are: Mary Ellen Lew, Mary Ann Bobowski, and Mary Ann Kekich. “Paul” Kenes and “Ringo” Hric show their Beatle paraphernalia to the “Beatlemanic” Powder Horn staff, M. Toops, P. Bachi, M. A. Kekich, L. Bartholomay, K. Hannon, D. Ogle, D. Stombaugh, and H. Kasprzak. This break in their rigorous “deadline¬ meeting” schedule was a rare and enjoyed one. Staff Glories in the “Fruit of its Labor” “Where’s my lay-out?’’ “The proof hasn’t been returned,” “That cut-line was supposed to be fifty- eight characters across,” were familiar and well- worn phrases used by one P.H. staffer or another during many months of exacting work. These people that were seen snapping pictures or asking questions or begging for a story or leav¬ ing school after the sun had set were connected in some way with the Powder Horn. The hub of these concentrated energies, Room 223, literally crawled with editors, photographers, printers, and engravers throughout the year. Every spare moment was utilized, and rest periods were rare, brief, and well-deserved. Middle-of-the- month deadlines were met, both not without pots of coffee, strained relations, and inevitable bags under the eyes. Hours were spent writing, cropping, typ¬ ing, checking, re-checking, and re-checking again. Discouraging as it sometimes was, no staffer will ever forget it. After a year of confusion, hard work, raves, and desperation, the entire staff—from the “chief” through the contributors—had gained experience in journalism and in co-operation. The headaches were worth the benefits—satisfaction and the 1964 Powder Horn. Holly Humphreys consults literary editors Marita Kenes and Linda Hric about copy she has written. Henrietta Kasprzak was selected as the 1964 Powder Horn editor. Assisting her as associate of the annual was Mary Toops. Both girls attended a two-week institute concerning themes, dummies, lay-outs, and cropping, etc., as a founda¬ tion for their work. This basis combined with Mr. Muir’s advice turned an imaginative idea into reality. Donna Stombaugh, subscriptions, and Pat Bachi, advertise¬ ments, are responsible for a great deal of yearbook money. Underclass editors Jeri Carpenter (left) and Connie Masura (right) begin a final check on hundreds of class pictures. Identifying and alphabetizing must be completed before the “cuts” are sent to the engraver. Faculty editors Mary Ellen Kew and Mary Ann Kekich organize the teachers section. Now Mary Ann, teachers aren’t that bad! 106 Senior Lynn Bartholomay has the thank-less job of ploughing through the “chicken scratch- ings” of the literary editors and coming up with captions, “heads,” and body copy. Senior Yvonne Trbovich matched hun¬ dreds of faces with extracurri¬ cular activity credits. Sports editor, Kent Hannon, keeps track of the box scores for tennis, football, wrestling, basketball, and baseball. Kathy Broderick, Jon Fech, and Barbara Krall complete the monotonous task of folding papers for the Pioneer News. 107 Clark Racketmen are New Conference Champs no Gary Hayes shows the perfect form of the serve in practice at Forsythe Park. Gary ended the year undefeated and won the Northwest Conference crown for third singles. Gary is one of the five seniors that will be missed next fall. Clark’s tennis team, coached by Mr. Steve Stav- ros, won the 1963 Championship of the new North¬ western Indiana Conference. The squad finished the season with a record of seven victories and no defeats. With a flock of returning lettermen the Netmen had early hopes for a successful season. The first pair of victories came relatively easy. East Chicago Roosevelt and East Chicago Washington were de¬ feated 4-1 and 5-0, respectively. When the Hammond Tech Tigers fell, 4-1, the team realized that it had a great opportunity to win the conference crown. The Stavrosmen next risked their perfect record against the three Gary teams. Clark dispensed with Horace Mann, Lew Wallace, and Tolleston by scores of 5-0, 5-0, and 4-1, respectively. These three vic¬ tories boosted the Pioneers’ record to 6-0 and left them in a tie with Hammond High, their final opponent. A large group of Clark boosters gathered at Harrison Park Courts to watch the championship match. The Netmen edged the Wilcats in a close contest, 3-2, to win the first Championship of the Northwestern Indiana Conference. Seniors Tom Snider, Dennis Burk, Gary Hayes, and Charles Wolf will not be around next year. Their presence will certainly be missed but veterans Larry Fuchs and Terry Wiak will return to defend the title won by this year’s squad.

Ill Clark’s 1963 football team suffered through one of the worst seasons in its history. The Pioneers failed to win one game out of nine attempts. The Pioneers started off the season by losing to the Morton Governors, 27-6. Roosevelt’s rugged line and their speedy backs drubbed the Pioneers, 33-6. Washington’s speed proved to be too much for the gridmen to handle as they lost 25-6. The Pioneers played their first road game of the year against Highland. The Pioneers led for three quarters, but a fourth quarter rally by the Trojans was enough to win, 13-7. Gary Horace Mann handed the Pio¬ neers their fifth straight loss of the year as they stomped the gridmen, 21-0. Conference champions Hammond High rolled to a 37-0 win. An inspired homecoming crowd cheered the Hammond Tech Tigers to a 46-6 win at Tech field. On November 1, the Pioneers ' journeyed to Whit¬ ing field with high hopes of beating their cross¬ town rivals. But the Oilers proved to be too strong to cope with and won 22-0. At the end of the season, Coach Emerson Aldrich announced that he would retire as football coach. Mr. Aldrich had been coach since 1949. Junior end Bob Harper grabs a key pass thrown by junior Bob Mastej. The Pioneers’ opponents in this game were the Hammond High Wildcats.

The team opened the season with an 18-6 loss to Gavit. Early in this game Charles Day rammed down to the Gladiator one yard line on a fullback draw play. Quarterback Bob Wetnight sneaked over from there and the Homesteaders led 6-0. The of¬ fense failed thereafter and Gavit came from behind to win, 18-6. Against Tech it was a different situa¬ tion. Danny DeLuna scored on a 15 yard end run in the second quarter to give the team a 6-0 lead. The defense refused to yield and the score remained. Against Whiting the Homesteaders ran into a tough defensive squad. Late in the fourth quarter Wen¬ dell Turpin took a handoff on an end around and raced 25 yards for a touchdown which gave the team another hard earned 6-0 victory. The Morton Governors, destined to win the championship, de¬ feated the frosh only a few days after the Hammond High Wildcats had turned the trick. In both games the Homesteaders were held scoreless. Morton ham¬ mered out 37 points, while Hammond High managed 22 . Following Morton in the league standings were Gavit, Hammond High, Clark, Hammond Tech, and Whiting.

Harriers Participate in Olympic Relay The George Rogers Clark Cross Country team concluded the 1963 season with an impressive record of eleven victories and only five defeats. Eight members of the varsity squad earned major letters. They were: Bob Hatczel, Bill Haddad, Daryll Kirk, Bob LaBrant, Bob Shourek, and Kent Hannon. Only Hannon and LaBrant are seniors, so Coach Shields can look forward to another successful season next year. One of the real highpoints of the season came at the rugged Hammond City Meet. Here the Harrires finished second among five teams. They defeated Tech, Gavit, and Morton, while losing only to power¬ ful Hammond High. Beating arch-rival Whiting twice in the course of the season was important, although close lesses to Tolleston and Washington were heartbreaking. The Harriers finished the cam¬ paign by winning five straight! They defeated Froebel, Horace Mann, Lew Wallace, Emerson, and Whiting in succession. Perhaps November was the most important month of the 1963 season. It was then that the Harriers first eight runners ran in the Olympic Torch Relay. The event was instituted to promote Detroit as the site of the 1968 Olympic Games. The Harriers were to carry the torch from the Illinois state line to Gary, Indiana. Bob Hatczel is shown running his leg of the Olympic Relay in pre-dawn darkness. As one of three teams in Indiana to participate, the Harriers received much news¬ paper publicity, were shown on television, and appeared in Sports Illustrated. WRESTLING—FRONT ROW: R. Cotner, M.

Grapplers Finish Season with a 7-6 Record The tenseness of the situation is reflected on the referee’s face. Mike Leland of Clark is about to pin a Crown Point wrestler in a hard fought contest in Clark’s gym. Mike’s victory helped the team defeat the scrappy Bulldogs. The 1964 Clark wrestling team finished a rugged, but successful season with a record of seven wins and six losses. The most discouraging point of the season came at the time when the team’s record was 6-4. The Highland Trojans, on their home floor, beat the matmen, 23-22, in the closest match of the year. Six days later an inspired team from Morton beat the matmen 22-18, in another close match. Victories in these two contests could have pushed the team’s season record to 8-4, in stead of 6-6. Earlier in the campaign the team had ridden the crest of a real hot streak. From December 13 until January 22 the squad won six meets, while losing only two. Included in this steak were five consecu¬ tive victories. The last win during this period came over the East Chicago Washington Senators by a score of 51-3. The team then warmed up for the Sectionals by defeating Bishop Noll in a home meet, 32-12. Steve Leland and Dan Galatzer emerged as Sec¬ tional Champions from the East Chicago center. Although Steve was defeated in the Regionals, Dan went on to finish fourth in the State Finals. 116 Bob LaBrant makes his initial move on the way to victory.

The score was 87-60. This loss gave the team a 5-16 record for the year. The Pioneers opened at home with South Bend Riley. The defending NCAA Champion Loyola Ram¬ blers were also on the bill, playing an intersquad game before the Pioneers took the floor. The round- ballers lost this game to Riley, but rebounded with an impressive 76-52 victory over Hobart. The team failed to score fifty points in dropping the next four games. The seventh game was a narrow 62-58 loss to S- B. St. Joseph. The last games of 1963 v ere losses to Bishop Noll and Whiting in the Whiting Holiday Tourney. The first game of 1964 was an 81-66 defeat at the hands of Lew Wallace. For the first time in a long spell, the team played good ball and trounced Whiting 72-59. Four more losses intervened before the next victory. The Horsemen of Gary Mann were the victims by a score of 65-59. Morton topped Clark 64-48. The roundballers shot a fantastic .525 from the field against Griffith while hustling to an 80-73 victory. The team followed the victory up by downing Emerson in a 56-54 thriller at the Civic Center.

Two of the losses, however, came in overtime games. Hammond High beat the Homesteaders, 54-51, and Gavit turned the trick, 49-48.

This spirit typified the Frosh squad’s desire to win. One must realize that with a few breaks the team’s record could have been 9-5. Don Abercrombie led the team in season scoring, although the team was always bolstered by balanced scoring. Eberle Sets School Record in City Meet Mr. Raymond Buell coached the Clark golf team to a record of nine wins and eighteen losses for the 1963 season. During the campaign the Turfmen beat Hammond High and Morton twice and defeated E. C. Washington, Tolleston, E. C. Roosevelt, Horace Mann, and Portage once each. The Lake Hills Invitational, the Indiana Section¬ als, and the Hammond City Meet were the season’s major tournaments. With twenty-eight schools par¬ ticipating in the Lake Hills Invitational Clark s score of 362 was good enough for fifteenth place. Clark’s team score of 364 in the Sectionals placed the Turfmen fourteenth out of twenty-six schools. Clark tied Bishop Noll and Hammond High for second place in the City Meet. In this match, Jim Eberle fired a 77 to set a school record. Den Burk, Tim Mihalso, Ken Kantowski, and Charles Wolf are returning lettermen from the 1963 squad. With four returning lettermen the future of the Pioneer golf team looks bright. Because of counseling duties, Mr. Buell will not coach the team in 1964 as he did last year. Mr. Oral Watkins, algebra teacher and Hi-Y sponsor, will take over the coaching reins. Senior Den Burk eyes a tricky putt that seems to be heading 1 straight for the cup on the tenth hole at Lake Hills. Clark Track Team Displays Winning Form TRACK—FRONT ROW: A. Seth, R. Eberle, S.

Three sparkling performances highlighted Clark’s 1963 track season. Senior Jack Deshincoe set a new Clark shot put record of 51’ 10”. Sharing the lime¬ light were sophomores Bob Hatczel, who set a new Hammond City record in the frosh-soph mile, and Paul Ratkovich, who leaped to a new high jump record for the school. To add to the luster of these outstanding feats the Pioneers initiated the first annual Clark Night Relays. In a field of six teams which included Bishop Noll, Hammond Tech, Gavit, E. C. Roosevelt, and Whiting, the squad finished fourth, garnering 46 points. The crowning of the Relays’ Queen, Diane Smigla, climaxed the evening. The Cindermen finished their dual meet season with a record of four wins and five losses. The Tech Tigers handed the Pioneers two of their losses by scores of 56-44 and 93-26. Bishop Noll, Valparaiso, and Gary Andrean beat the Pioneers in those re¬ maining three defeats. Clark rolled up 103 points in beating Whiting. Other Pioneer victories came in meets with Gavit, Crete Monee, and T. F. North. In events outside the dual meet season the Cinder- men placed fifth in the Chesterton Relays, tied for first in a triangular meet with Gary Emerson and Highland, placed third in the Hammond City Indoor Meet, placed fourth in the Outdoor, finished tenth in the Hammond Relays, and placed sixth in the Sectionals. In the Conference Indoor Meet the team took eighth place by garnering 18 points. In what was perhaps the lowest point of the track season for Clark the squad scored only five points and finished exactly last in the Conference Outdoor Meet. The 1964 season looks much brighter for Coach Powell and his squad. Nine returning lettermen will return to bolster the team in what will be a most successful campaign. Those lettermen are: J. An¬ tilla, B. Hatczel, B. Jorkon, J. Illyanich, G. Koehler, J. Kocsis, P. Miskus, R. Moffitt, and J.

The Aldrichmen finished three and three in non-conference games and five and five in the Western Division. Oddly enough, the team beat everyone in the conference and was beaten by the same teams. The season began with five warm-up games against non-league opponents. The Pioneers opened successfully by troucing Highland 12-2. Next on the list came the Lowell Red Devils who fell by a score of 10-0. In the third game of the season Clark suffered its first defeat, 5-0, at the hands of Ham¬ mond Morton. The team recovered quickly, how¬ ever, and downed a young Gavit squad by the score of 6-2. The last exhibition game turned out to be a slug fest with Calumet Township. A home run in the last of the seventh inning gave the opponents a 12-11 victory. In the first conference game of the year, Clark lost a heartbreaking thriller to cross-town rival Whiting. Regulation games are seven innings long, but this contest lasted thirteen. Bob Kukta turned in a brilliant mound performance for nine innings during which time he yielded no hits. The contest ended just as the sun was setting. The stickmen lost, 1-0. Hammond High posted an 11-4 victory over the diamondmen on the Pioneer’s own field. The slump did not last long before the Aldrichmen succeeded in stopping Tech, 15-1, and Washington, 11-8. Roosevelt needed a late inning homer to down the hardballers by a 3-2 score. The first round ended with Clark holding a two and three record in the conference. The second part of the conference season started on a happier note. The baseballers powered their way to a fine 12-2 victory over Whiting. A much- improved Tiger squad slipped by the stickmen in a surprising 5-4 decision. The team ambushed Ham¬ mond High, the league champs, in an exciting 8-7 game. Washington took advantage of their home field to defeat the Pioneers by a 10-2 score. In the final game of the conference the diamondmen even¬ ed their record by slipping by Roosevelt 2-0. To end their season, the baseballers took on Morton in an exhibition game. The Governors needed a sterling mound job from Bob Guzek to win 2-1. The totals show that the Aldrichmen outslugged their opponents by thirty runs—111 to 71. Senior A1 Lewandowski led the team in batting with a tremendous .500 average, and also had the most hits, 18. Jeff Render led in R.B.I.’s, 13, and runs, 11. With many returning lettermen, the baseball squad is looking forward to a successful season in 1964. 124 BASEBALL—FRONT ROW: E. Bogucki, B. Harper, B. Mastej, L. Ruzycki, J. Latiak, J. Render, A.

Mr. Franklin guided the Tumbling Club through its third year as an active organization. Any boy from a freshman to a senior was eligible to try out for the team. This year’s squad consisted of nine¬ teen boys. A great majority of these boys were underclassmen and will probably return next year. The Tumbling Club met every second and fourth Wednesday during activity period. During the short time allotted them, the boys practiced their various routines. At different times in the year Clark’s Tumbling Club competed with the clubs from other schools. This year’s squad did a fine job in such competition. One of the highlights for the boys this year was performing at the half-time of the varsity basket¬ ball game between Morton and Clark. Although very nervous, the tumbling team made a commendable showing, and the fans were well pleased. Mr. Franklin hopes the club will enlarge in the next few years, and he also wishes to supply the boys with better gymnastic equipment in the future. Senior Joe Vargo, member of the Tumbling Club for three years, performs a near perfect diving forward flip as interested spectators look on. 126 Merry, C. Carter, D. Seth. THIRD ROW: J. Vargo, S.

Miss Myers and Clark, Wendy Hickman, and Cathy Berland execute a man- Mrs. Kompier instruct the girls’ classes. Fitness is Paramount in Phys. Ed. Program The aim of every physical education participant is to keep fit. The late President’s program has encouraged everyone to maintain his own physical prowess. At Clark both boys and girls are given opportunities to excell in athletic fields. Every Clark student is required to take at least four semesters of physical education training. Mr. Joe Franklin is in charge of the boys’ gym classes. Boys participate in football, volleyball, base¬ ball, basketball, tumbling, and competitive drills. Calisthenics are an integral part of each day’s physical activities. Mr. Franklin frequently takes time out to instruct boys in the proper techniques of various sports. On days when bad weather keeps the boys inside, they busy themselves by skipping rope, walking the ladder, and rope climbing. Girls are under the supervision of Miss Doris Myers and Mrs. Margaret Kompier. They play many of the same sports that the boys play. Baseball, basketball, and volleyball are favorites of the girls, while the trampoline is something extra special. The third hour physical education class work at their daily routine of calisthenics.

Mr. Shields and Mr. Daughterty, co-sponsors, co¬ operated with president Roy Moffitt in compiling a full program of activities. The club continued its regular duties of selling popcorn after school and at home grade school and freshmen basketball games. In the fall the members busied themselves with selling programs and pop¬ corn at home varsity football games. In December, and again later in the year, the members had a party in the gym. The annual C-Club dance, held the first week after Lent, was a huge success. The banquet in May was the highlight of an active year. Many new activities were scheduled this year. A car wash was conducted in the early part of the year to raise money. During the basketball season a benefit game was played. The game featured the alumni and the Clark faculty. Profits from the game went toward the purchase of summer jackets for deserving members. As the year passed new members were inducted. All in all, the year was a fruitful one.

C. Keeps Members Healthy and Happy G.A.C. bowling extends for eight weeks at Parkview Bowl¬ ing Lanes which is constantly filled with bowling groups. Here Pam Kelso, with intense concentration, rolls the ball down the lane hoping to get a strike. “Elephants Jump for G.A.C.” was the theme of the annual club picnic held at Marquette Park early in the fall. Each year softball, swimming, bowling, and basketball are offered. Any girl can become a mem¬ ber if she obtains a major in at least two of these four sports. By participating in sports, homecoming activities, the selling of concessions at games, and the annual dance, the girls can also obtain points towards their letters. At the Mother-Daughter Banquet awards, num¬ erals, monograms, and letters are presented to the girls who have the required number of points for them. Small trophies are also awarded to all the players of the champion basketball team and to the highest scoring bowlers from each class. An¬ other activity at the banquet is the formal initia¬ tion of the new freshmen members. Miss Doris Myers, G.A.C.’s sponsor, helps make one of the largest clubs one of the most active clubs. As varied as the activities seem, they are all con¬ centrated on one purpose—to keep its members healthy and happy. G.A.C. OFFICERS— FRONT ROW: B. Vaughan, vice-pres.; N. Gora, head of sports.
