PATTERNS IN School Year. 4 Patterns in Academics . 26 Patterns in Activities . 48 Patterns in Athletics. 82 Patterns in Clarkites . 106 Patterns in Advertising . 144 EDUGATIO School Life Weaves Patterns in Education The school year 1964-1965 was one Of the busiest ever. Clarkites Bought class rings, made Homecoming floats, studied for Exams, cheered at sectionals, Bought Booster Club buttons, and Danced at the Prom. The Year had special meaning, However, for the Senior Class. After they leave Clark, The Class of ’65 will Use their past experience As they seek new Patterns in Education. An array of extra-curricular sports, including those sponsored by G.A.C., share the athletic limelight. The relaxed atmosphere of the cafeteria allows Clarltites to converse while enjoying a well-balanced meal. One mode of transportation for hundreds of students is the bus. Boarding the bus on 119th Street is a daily procedure for North Hammondites. In Classes and Clubs Teacher-Student The lounge provides a place for teachers to regain their composure and discuss the day’s events, while student teachers get better acquainted with the faculty. Mr. Mybeck, familiar figure at Clark activities, dances with Mary Ann Poracky. 6 A spirit of friendliness pervades the halls of G.R.C. This quartet awaits the dreaded ring of the homeroom bell. Relations Grow The friendly atmosphere surrounding Clark creates a healthy environment for All facets of student life. The busy Faculty finds time to sponsor Extra-curricular activities. Such Gatherings do much to bring Teachers closer to students and Students closer to each other. The faculty and the student body Share a school spirit That never diminishes Whether our team wins or loses. Alumni Return to See Pioneers Victorious Enthusiastic spirit comprised th e Homecoming atmosphere at Clark, as students worked day and night For weeks in advance. The many cars, Floats, exhibits, banners, And signs displayed the time, effort, and Work of all Clarkites concerned. Organizing the parade, winning the Game, crowning the queen, And celebrating at the dance Helped to make the 1964 Homecoming A memorable experience. Clark’s ’68 Homecoming queen Joann Smigla crowned the ’64 queen Lois Mrzlock during half-time ceremonies. Her Majesty reigned over the entire evening and following day festivities. Homecoming queen Lois Mrzlock, Seniors Nancy Gora, Mari¬ lyn Cison; Junior, Sharon Granger; Sophomore, Jane Ehlers; Freshman, Marilyn Krause. During Homecoming the G.R.C. cheering section, always one of the best, manages to put forth a little more energy for 8 “Oom-pah-pah.” Melodious sound from the Pioneer band echoed through the streets of Whiting on Homecoming night. The annual parade is a popular event for the community. the returning alumni. The booster block had much to cheer about when the Pioneers beat Highland 20-7. The Greek charioters, depicting the 1961 homecoming theme “Mythology”, symbolized the fall of the Highland “Trojans.” With Gay Hearts Juniors Stage Class Play The auditorium clock struck eight, The velvet curtains parted, And the adventures of two teenage girls, Cornelia and Emily, began. The girls were refreshingly funny as They experienced near shipwreck, Romance, the theater, and even Bedbugs. The cast will never forget when “Our Hearts Were Young And Gay.” Fearing an accidental sinking, Emily Kimbrough (Sharon Granger) feverishly practices her swimming strokes. The ship’s steward (Ron Gaspar) waits patiently for his tip as Cornelia (Mary Lou Jamrose) is berated by her parents. 10 Therese (Sandy Hanusin), the French maid acquaints the vacationing Emily (Sharon Granger) with her new lodging. Mrs. Skinner (Mary Rudser) reassures the doubtful Cornelia (Mary Lou Jamrose) that all young girls wear safety pockets. Dick Winters (Ron C.otner) helps the cautious Emily (Sharon Granger) to struggle into a complicated life preserver. The ship’s pompous purser (Wayne Kacoha) and tottering stewardess (Tessa Zajac) conduct a search for a stowaway. The all-Junior cast of “Our Hearts Were Young and Gay’’ —Front row: Dick Girman, Mary Lou Jamrose, Sharon Granger, Ron Corner. Second row: Rick Leimbach, Ron Gas- par, Tessa Zajac, Beth Forbes, Sandy Hanusin, Carol Whyte, LeAnn Leimbach, Mary Rud¬ ser, Pete Jansak. Third row: Wayne Kacocha, Joe Lattak, Jan Pisowicz. 11 Excited over the prospect of meeting Donna Lucia, Kitty Verdun (Muff Cervone) and Amy Spettique (Kathy Kowalski) pump Charley Whkeham (A. J. Saliga) for information. The cast of " Charley’s Aunt”, including sophomores, juniors, and seniors, Bob Smith, Jack Greenberg, Kathy Flaris, A. J. Saliga, Kathy Kowalski, Bob Harper, Muff Cervone, Jim Laughter, Applause Resound as Thespians For weeks the cast of Charley’s Aunt Worked to ready it for the public. They Were rewarded, when on April 16 and 17, Laughter resounded in the auditorium. The action of the play centered Around two English school boys who were Intent on asking their proper young Ladies to tea in their room. Needing a Chaperone, they induced a schoolmate To impersonate Charley’s Aunt. The Scheme ended when the real Aunt Arrived. This play successfully Concluded the year’s theatrical season. 12 While unwillingly impersonating Charley’s Aunt, Lord Fan- court Babberly (Jack Greenberg) fiercely resists all advances by Mr. Spettique (Bob Smith) for obvious reasons. Madsen, Liz Hryniowiecki, and Dave Winner, beam proudly after the two successful performances of this play which was viewed by full houses both evenings. Give Charley’s Aunt While Donna Lucia D ' Alvadorez (Liz Hryniowiecki) listens wistfully, Ela (Kathy Flaris) expresses her desire to inhabit a cool, leafy garden and a home in England. Will it be a success or a failure?” This question weighed on the minds of every cast member of Charley’s Aunt as they listen to last minute instructions. Finally managing to steal Kitty Verdun (Muff Cervone) away from the crowd, Jack Chesney (Bob Harper) valiantly tried to make her realize how he felt about her. Springfield Tourist View Lincoln’s Tomb Clark students left for Springfield On a Forum Club sponsored trip. The trip included a visit to the Imposing Lincoln Tomb; the majestic Illinois State Capitol; the Illinois State Museum; and New Salem, Illinois, Once the home of President Lincoln. The Clarkites felt the tour was Informative, interesting, and educational. Pam Kelso and Ron Gaspar stop at a well in the reconstructed village of New Salem, the home of young Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was the guiding light for the members of the Forum Club during their sojourn to Springfield last fall. The mystery of history touches Clark students as they examine a replica of Abraham Lincoln ' s home in Springfield. Clarkites Tour East Coast and Capitol Hill Clarkites braved the windy weather as they crossed New York to visit the Statue of Liberty. ] Mary Rudser and Greg Montgomery toured the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D. C. On October 20, Clark students left On a six-day tour of Washington and New York. Highlighting the tour were such Impressive sights as the White House, The U. N., and the Statue of Liberty. 15 Assembly Portrays Annapolis’ Life; No, it ' s not a scene from an old “Three Stooges” movie. It’s just Seniors Kathy Flaris and Andy Dzurovcik practicing the pie routine for the assembly launching the Magazine Drive. Mr. Erickson symbolizes the attentiveness of Clark’s student body as Indiana’s Senator Hartke addressed an assembly. Student Council Co-Presidents congratulate Midshipman Dames on his interesting assembly describing life at Annapolis. College Day Held After formal initiation Kent Hannon, National Honor Society president, congratulates the newly elected members. Interested Seniors and Juniors Attended the annual College Day on November 22. Various colleges, Universities, and technical schools Sent representatives to inform students About enrollment requirements, And campuses. National Honor Society Organized the proceedings. Student Council sponsored The many assemblies of the school year Including Kiwanis speakers And an Annapolis cadet. Representatives of various colleges help Clark Seniors and Juniors decide on their choice of colleges. British Influence Dominates Fashion This year’s fashion motif was definitely International. England’s “Oliver” Blouses, France’s discotheque dress, Ski pants and parkas from the Alps, And the U. S. Navy Middy style were the vogue. For out-of-school activities, students chose stretch slacks, ski jackets, “knee knockers,” white levis and school jackets. The current trends in hairstyles, the Ivy Lea¬ gue look and long straight hair, are model¬ ed by John Merker and Tamsie Miskus. Many fashions prevailed at Clark during the year. Girls wore coordinates, “discotheque” dresses, knee socks, and madras. Boys donned the college look with sweaters and loafers. ■ Casual Dances Break School Monotony A special attraction to the Latin Club dance, “Sacrifice Smash,” was the mop chariot race. The balcony of the gym boasts a view of many dancers exerting themselves in the latest maneuvers. Cha-cha lines wriggle their way back and forth across the floor during a Friday night dance. Clarkites in pairs, trios, and circles swing to the discotheque rhythms popular this year. The ever-popular Clark dances increased In favor with the students This year as bands provided most of The entertainment. The GRC ‘Discotheque ” or big gym as it is More commonly known, was the scene Of a vivacious display of all The latest steps. The dances ranged From the informal class swings To the gala spring affair, the Prom. 19 Select Pupils Attend Summer Institutes Many Clark seniors attended special summer sessions at various colleges. Among them, Mary Ann Poracky, Latin Institute, and Jan Michalak, Social Studies Institute, spent a week at I. U. Last summer Janet Duncan and Joan Varellas attended Indiana University’s Library Institute during the month of August. Throughout the week they learned library skills. Holly Humphreys, Jim Ruf, Ava Markonni, Bob Moynihan, Car¬ ole Girski, and Tim Beaudrie represented Clark at Girls’ and Boys’ State during the summer of 1964. The American Legion sponsors the mock government for the high school seniors. During the summer of 1964, many Clark students gained further Knowledge in their fields of interest By attending one of the many Summer institutes. Boys’ and Girls’ State gave the student an Opportunity to take part in the Operation of state government. Yearbook and newspaper editors Learned the basics of journalism. The library workshop gave Future librarians additional Information on cataloging and Bulletin board displays. To expand their knowledge of newspaper journalism, Geri Dzurovcik, Pioneer Nexus assistant editor, and Barb Vaughan, editor-in-chief, spent two weeks each at Indiana University. Summer institutes meant learning for Rose Duhon, Jeff Weiss, and Rick Weiner who studied science, business, and speech at Purdue, Northwestern, and Colorado Universities, respectively. At the I.U. High School Journalism Institute, Connie Masura, associate editor, and Holly Humphreys, editor of the 1965 POWDER HORN, learned yearbook editing. For Clark students music Serves as a means of Enjoyment and pleasure. Audiences enjoy concerts because Concerts give them a chance To relax and forget their problems. Students take pride in seeing Their fellow classmates show Their musical ability. At Clark Music is in the forms of band, orchestra. And vocal concerts, musical Plays and operettas. Dorie (Lois Mrzlock) sings and dances joyfully with her step-children in her new home. Concerts Feature Pop, Classical Music, After spending two years at sea, Johnny Dee (Leonard Marcisz) re¬ turns home to find that Dorie (Lois Mrzlock), who thought that he was dead, has married. 22 Fear, concentration, and pleasure lights the faces of the clarinetists during a number on the Mid-Year Band Concert. Dixie, Operetta When women of Scarlettown spotted a ship, Hannah (Mary Ann Poracky) and Dorie (Lois Mrzlock) rejoice together. 23 Parisian Theme Sets Romantic Mood Junior Class officers Jim Ruf, Mary Ann Poracky, Roy Moffitt and their dates plan for Saturday at the Dunes. “Soiree Magnifique” was the phrase used To describe the night of the Prom, May 29, 1964. Beautiful Sherwood Country Club provided a Romantic setting to dance to the music Of the Hal Morris Revue. With midnight the mood shifted from one In the closing minutes of the Prom, Mr. Aldrich directed the couples in the traditional grand march. 24 Of dreaminess to fun, and the After-Prom party was on. Festivities ended, signifying the close Of a magnificient evening. A fitting end to the Junior-Senior Prom was the traditional grand march in which all couples took part. Wally Steliga and Carol Tokarz seem to be in a world of their own as they dance to the music of Hal Morris. Seniors Open the Doors to the Future Graduation, the moment anticipated by Members of the Class of 1965 for four long Years, finally arrived on June 9. Adorned in caps and gowns, the Seniors received their hard-earned Diplomas. Commencement, As the final event of the traditional Senior Week, brought to a close four hectic But wonderful years for the members of Clark’s most recent graduating class. Graduation means something different to every student involved; but the traditional feeling is that it symbolizes the dosing of one door and the opening of another. The true realization of com¬ mencement becomes evident to these Seniors as they re¬ hearse the graduation exer¬ cises for that rewarding final moment. 25 Academics played a major role in the over All pattern at Clark. Developmental reading, a new Course introduced this year, helped Seniors meet college Requirements in reading. Many New devices, such as over Head projectors, Were employed by the teachers To make classroom Lectures more effective. These And many other phases, Old and new, made up the Patterns in academics. Talented Students Receive Academic On June 9, Rosemary Duhon delivered her valedictory speech. Her near perfect academic record afforded her this honor. Opportunities are unlimited for Dan Mihalo, who claimed the title of salutatorian of the Class of 1965. Allen Clements was the 1965 recipient of the Bausch and Lomb award for his high standing in science classes. There are several positions of high honor in a high school graduating class. Among the outstanding students are the valedictorian, the salutatorian, and the Bausch and Lomb Award winner. The valedictorian holds the most honorable posi¬ tion in a senior class. To achieve this high honor, a person must hold the highest grade point average in the graduating class. The work required to attain such an average is by no means easy and earning such an average is a full time job. Ranking right behind the valedictorian is the number two stu¬ dent, the salutatorian. Being one of the leaders in a class is not just getting good grades. Usually these students are active in service clubs and deserve much merit for their achievement. Another scholarship award is the Bausch and Lomb Science Award, which is given to the out¬ standing senior science student. 28 The senior girl honored by the D.A.R. for her citizenship, service, and scholarship was Mary Ann Poracky. Each year an outstanding sophomore biology student is the recipient of the Elizabeth Lyle Memorial Award. Carol Leskovich was honored for the year 1964-65. Honors and Awards The Daughters of the American Revolution Award was presented to Mary Ann Poracky, a senior girl who best exemplified the American ideal. Her qualities of leadership and citizenship have been used to a great advantage throughout her years at Clark. This award entitled Mary Ann to take a comprehensive essay test on American history. Carol Leskovich was the recipient of the Elizabeth Lyle Memorial Award. Each year this honor is be¬ stowed upon the student who does outstanding work in the field of biology. Carol’s accomplishments in this area were a tribute to the memory of a former Clark biology teacher, Elizabeth Lyle. The Rotary Club is an organization composed of businessmen and teachers. Junior Rotarians are chosen to represent our school on the basis of character, leadership, scholarship, and honor. Each boy attends the weekly Rotary luncheon meetings for one month. There the Rotarians have an opportunity to meet community leaders and learn the role that business plays in a community. JUNIOR ROTARIANS—Front row: D. Mihalo, G. Brown, T. Beaudrie, J. Weiss, N. Bubnovich. Second row: A. Cle¬ ments, M. Moskal. Freshmen Allen Jamrose and Mike Novotny demonstrate an interesting way to learn vocabulary by playing the French version of Scrabble in Miss Sauvain’s class. Variety of Languages Instill In Students As part of the school’s curriculum, several foreign language courses were offered at George Rogers Clark. Continuing progress has been made through¬ out the past years in this field of learning. In today ' s world, knowledge of a foreign language was certainly beneficial due to the increasing amount of foreign communication in every aspect of life. The classical language of Latin still remained the most popular at Clark. Young Romans often sur¬ prised their instructor with personalized transla¬ tions of Caesar’s Gallic Wars, increased enrollment in the conversational languages of Spanish, French, and German provided an avid interest for a back¬ ground in language arts and development. Due to the increased attention towards foreign language many modern facilities and teaching tech¬ niques have been adopted. The language lab pro¬ vided a means to improve speaking a language fluently. Audiovisual materials also aided students in the interesting field of linguistics. The language department constantly sought new instruction techniques and study aids to continue the progress of ancient and modern languages. 30 one of Clark’s newest educational facilities and it is equipped with tape recorders and direct contact with the instructor. Culture and Background of Foreign Lands Vergil’s birthday, October 15, posed as a special event for advanced Latin students Nick Bubnovich, Joan Paylo, Kathy Kowalski, Mary Ann Poracky and Bob Bubnovich. For the first time in Clark history, a fourth year of a language was offered to any interested students. This language was Latin and the two Senior girls, Mary Ann Poracky and Kathy Kowalski took part. The class was run on a semester basis with the main portion of the work consisting of the translation of Vergil’s Aeneid and other Roman works. There were also third year programs in the other three languages, French, German, Spanish, and also in Latin. These groups consisted of advanced stu¬ dents who were interested in the specialization of culture as well as in the basics of grammar. Through the use of the language lab, Spanish stu¬ dents learned much background material on the Spanish-speaking countries. Mrs. Encinosa, the new Spanish teacher and a refugee from Cuba, added many interesting lectures, discussions, films, folk songs, and recordings to the classroom routine. French and German classes learned to appreciate the finer points of their languages through the study of maps, reports, foreign newspapers, and back¬ ground. The entire language department hopes to further the languages through progress in techniques. 31 Shakespeare, Advanced Comp, Themes, Helping students to gain poise and confidence was the aim of both the Debate and Speech classes. This year, students debated the following topic, Resolved: That nuclear weapons should be controlled by an international organization. In Speech class, students spent time covering persuasive and demonstration speeches. Debates, original pantomimes, interpretive reading, and the rules of parliamentary procedure were also taken up. Every student at Clark must take at least three years of English and those going on to college must take four years. Not only were English grammar and usuage studied but also the literature of the world. Students studied literature from Chaucer to Shakes¬ peare and on down to contemporary writers. All forms of literature were taken up so that a student had an adequate background in all phases of writing. An equal amount of time was spent on poetry, short stories, novels, essays, and plays. Whether a student wished to increase his self- confidence or to improve his English or to appre¬ ciate literature, the opportunity was provided in the English and Speech Departments. Juniors Sharon Granger, Jim Navta, and Lyne Dostatni re¬ vise their themes written for Miss McCampbell’s English class. One phase of advanced composition is the study of famous plays. The seniors in Mrs. Gates ' class received first hand experiences about Hamlet by attending a live performance, listening to records, and examining the skull of Yoric. 32 Celebrating Shakespeare ' s 400th birthday, the English depart¬ ment erected a memorial display to honor the great playright. The new reading machines help Cindy Kinnane to increase her reading speed and comprehension, if used daily. In preparation for a debate, Dave Winner practices his debating skills before his fellow students. 33 As a supplement to the text, once a week Mr. Charlet’s “Newsweek” and “Time”. These publications arouse the government classes read various news magazines such as students’ interest in current world affairs and national politics. Newsweek Used in Studying Current The United States government and economic systems are studied in full by all seniors. Government teaches students the complex mech¬ anisms of our government and the basic principles of democracy at work. This course strives to prepare students for responsibility connected with the privi¬ lege of voting. Government class also endeavored to make every student a good citizen and to create in every senior a vital interest in our political structure. Mr. Charlet tried to put this into working practice by having his government classes take an active part in this year’s national election. All his classes distri¬ buted Who’s Who in the Election to residents of the Robertsdale area. In a semester’s study of economics Mr. Erickson emphasized the importance of the production, con¬ sumption, and distribution of our nation’s goods and services. He also dealt extensively with the prob¬ lem of unemployment and its ill effects on the economy. As part of the text for this year Mr. Erick¬ son distributed many magazine and newspaper articles which were concerned with the value of a completed education as the basis for a better job. The main objective of this class was to present the students with a picture of the economic system. Both courses made Seniors aware of these two most important influences in their lives. 34 Bo Jarabak, Dan Carlson, Pete Burkey and Bob Bueliler complete the finishing touches on their campaign project for Mr. Mybeck’s history class by posting Goldwater’s picture. World Problems Geography students learn about foreign countries, their customs, and their way of life not only through the taking of notes but also through the reading of maps. The factual story of the world’s growth and composition were carefully examined in the history and geography classes at Clark. The slory of man from prehistoric times to the space age was attentively looked at by sophomores in Mr. Heslin’s and Mr. Preusz’s world history classes. Every war and every rise and fall of an empire were carefully studied to find their causes. These world happenings were also studied as to their influence on the culture and background of our own nation. Important to every American, and especially to juniors at Clark, is our nation’s history. Every event from our discovery to our emerging as a world power relives as it is taken up in the United States History classes by Mr. Preusz and Mr. Mybeck. The history of the world is enhanced by the study of its geography. Mr. Mueller and Miss Wilharm took each nation and carefully explained its geo graphy and its climatic tendencies. These two con¬ ditions are primarily responsible for the particular products and other contributions of every country on the globe to the total economy of the world. The geography of the United States is also studied in complete detail. The nation is divided into sec¬ tions and each section is examined for its particular topography, climate, and products. Students, because of these courses, are familiar with all aspects of the world in which they live. Mr. Gerald Preusz utilizes the new opaque projector to help his world history students outline the class discussions. The projector aids classes in map analysis. 35 Math is More Than Simple Addition Opportunities in mathematics at Clark have truly kept pace with the technological age in which we live. Here advanced algebra students concentrate upon the usage of the slide rule. In addition to this advanced algebra course the present curriculum offers accelerated work in college algebra, analytic geometry, and trigonometry. The mathematics department at Clark provides a widely diversified program of study for developing in individuals the ability to apply sound and accu¬ rate reasoning. College-bound students and those interested in advanced mathematics usually indulge in two or more of the six courses offered — algebra, advanced algebra, plane geometry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and college algebra. Freshman algebra introduces students to technical mathematics. In plane geometry, a sophomore sub¬ ject, geometric laws and the principles of logical thinking are emphasized. Juniors delve into more complex algebraic problems and solutions in ad¬ vanced algebra. In the final year of high school, mathematically inclined seniors may take trig¬ onometry and either analytic geometry or college algebra or both. Trigonometry helps students com¬ bine their knowledge of algebra and geometry with new mathematical principles in solving problems. In analytic geometry students develop their abilities to visualize mentally and to think scientifically, while in college algebra more advanced methods of solving intricate equations are learned. All courses of study are supervised by Mr. Emerson Aldrich, head of the math department. 36 As Dennis Dijak and Rose Duhon set up the transit to measure the distance to the north wall of the school, Dan Mihalo and Larry Fuchs take notes and make calculations. Freshman algebra students Linda Spanier and Mary Betli Falda discuss the operations involved in the solution of one of the many algebraic division problems. Freshman and sophomore college preparatory stu¬ dents spent their first two years in the mathematical field studying beginning algebra and geometry. Beginning algebra students delved into the per¬ plexing world of equations. But solving equations was not the only type of problem that algebra stu¬ dents concerned themselves with. They also learned how to make and to interpret line graphs. These problems became easy to solve and to understand through the capable teaching of Mr. Huber, Mr. Hriso, and Miss Wallace, and through the use of the overhead projector. This instrument greatly aided the teachers, as well as the students, in explain¬ ing basic techniques. After successfully mastering the fundamentals of algebra, sophomores plunged intensely into the study of geometry. Geometric theorems and corollaries were solved by logical reasoning and by statements supporting these reasons, not just by manipulating numbers as in algebra class. Mr. Aldrich and Mr. Hriso instructed their students in the correct way to use deductive and inductive reasoning. Compasses and straightedges were tools employed in construct¬ ing simple and complex geometrical figures. Rick Weiner proves his ability to think logically as he skill¬ fully demonstrates the process of angle bisecting. Blackboard explanation helps students to understand their homework. Sophomore Larry Simko listens intently as Mr. Hriso explains an involved geometry problem. The proof will later appear on a screen with the aid of the opaque projector. 37 Earth Science Added to Curriculum Mr. Thomas, health teacher, points out the skeletal structure of George II to Marge Conway and Fred Ehlers. Earth Science, a recent addition to Clark’s ever- widening curriculum consists of a comprehensive study of our planet, Earth. Miss Wilharm, the course instructor, predicts that earth science will soon take on added importance in schools all over the country. Inquisitive science students will explore the realms of the stars, the moon, minerals, geologic time, and will experiment with weather prediction. By the end of the semester earth science students will be able to identify the constellations, common rocks, and fossils. A practical knowledge of our planet and solar system will be their reward. Health, the study of the human body, teaches Clarkites about man, who could be considered the eighth wonder of the world. All the bones of the skeletal system are laboriously counted, the flow of blood through the heart is traced, and the wonders of the human brain are unearthed. With the help of visual aids and George, the skeleton, students can easily grasp health principles. First Aid treat¬ ment and the diagnosis of disease are mastered while the student increases his practical knowledge. Earth science students A. J. Saliga, Dave Sallay, and Ralph Serafin observe the experienced technique of instructor Miss Wanda Wilharm as she analyzes different kinds of rocks by reacting them with hydrochloric acid. 38 Eight biology classes under the direction of Miss Wanda Wilharm and Mr. Edward Powell have cover¬ ed many of the branches of biology this year. Eager Biology pupils have enjoyed the study of insects, vertebrates, spermatophytes, roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds. Part of the fun during the study of fruits was getting to eat the fruit after examining it with a microscope. The young biolo¬ gists have also entered into the study of genetics, cells, and one-celled animals, such as the amoeba and paramecium. All the classes have taken part in using the microscopes, watching many movies on the various phases of biology, and doing some out¬ side research on their own. Clark’s budding biologists created a familiar scene around town last fall as they were seen gathering and identifying leaves for their collections. Besides constituting points for extra-credit, these collections added to the students’ appreciation of the nature everywhere around them. A squealing girl or two could also be found trying to catch a grasshopper for her insect collection. On completing the course, students feel that their know¬ ledge of biology has developed and increased, and that this year has been very worthwhile. Kathy Carpenter and Jerry Banik are performing one of many experiments required in their biology class. Guided by an instruction booklet, they are dissecting a clam. Flora and Fauna Fascinate Biologists Clark biology students are availing themselves of some of Golding is using one of the new microscopes while Reinhard the modern equipment purchased by the department. Patty Fritz does an experiment with an overhead microscope. 39 Pete Burkey and Sigrid Schmidt adjust a microcaliper with which they plan to measure the piece of aluminum tubing held by Tim Hovanec. Last fall sixty-nine Clarkites were enrolled in the physics course offered at Clark. These students were primarily from the Junior Class, but there were a few exceptions. One alumnus rejoined the ranks of the high school pupils by returning to Clark to take physics. A very small minority of seniors was also enrolled in this course. Classes were held during the fifth and sixth periods. To many pupils, this subject was a greater challenge than any other course which they had previously encountered in their high school career. The students learned new concepts applicable to their daily life. By June a wide range of topics had been covered by the classes. Practically everything from the six simple machines (which some pupils didn ' t feel were so simple) to the complex principles of the refraction of light was included in the class discussions. Mr. Oral Watkins instructed the physics classes. In ad¬ dition to reading assignments and fundamental physics problems, students did workbook exercises and classroom experiments to increase their know¬ ledge of the subject matter. Much of the material which the pupils absorbed consisted of scientific concepts that were new to them. Upon completion of the course, many felt a sense of accomplishment. Juniors Pursue Physics Phenomena Physics, a subject vital in developing our future society, is Mr. Watkins’ pupils record data from a scientific experiment an integral part of the college preparatory course at Clark. as they learn more of the natural world around them. 40 Lab Sessions Supplement Class Work Kathy Kowalski and Ruth Tkach utilize the pneumatic trough in displacing water to collect carbon dioxide. Chemistry was an important course for college- bound Clark seniors. With the patient assistance of Mr. John Wisemiller, chemistry teacher, students learned the fundamentals of this study of matter and energy. Classroom lectures and discussions consti¬ tuted a large portion of the learning process. Indi¬ vidual experiments and group demonstrations also added to the students’ knowledge while simultane¬ ously breaking the monotony of classroom routine. Outside reading supplemented the regular study. Mr. Wisemiller taught three two-hour chemistry classes during the 1964-65 school year, including an early-morning lab which started at 7:.‘50 A.M. twice a week. The other two classes divided their second hour between the lab and the library. An addition to this year’s second-semester chem¬ istry course was a lecture on chromatography, one of the most useful methods available for separating mixtures of substances, by guest speaker Professor Brooker from Indiana Central College. A group of chemistry students also combined with a group of biology students to tour near-by Argonne National Laboratories. There, the students viewed a cyclo¬ tron, a cynchrotron, a particle accelerator, and many of the fascinating aspects of the atom world. 41 Office Bound Clarkites Plan Ahead Whatever you choose as your goal in life, you can always benefit from at least one of the many busi¬ ness classes offered to the students at Clark. Typing is considered the most useful of the var¬ ious business courses. It is one of the most popular in the entire school curriculum. Typing is offered in three sections of one semester each, depending upon the degree of accuracy to be obtained. Shorthand is a necessity for the secretarial-minded girl. Accuracy as well as speed are fundamentals for a well-trained stenographer. A knowledge of the machines of the business world is also a great help in this field. There are many such machines available to the student body of Clark. Business law is important in any field, from the smallest candy store to the largest corporation. The rules and procedures are all based on law, and no business can function without it. General business and commercial math are based on the realities of everyday living. Consumer prob¬ lems, which deals mainly in advertising and budget¬ ing, is helpful to everyone, including the most ef¬ ficient and most economical homemaker. Bookkeeping is a career in itself, while accounting is one of the highest paid positions in any firm. Tomorrow’s secretaries, enrolled in the shorthand-transcrip¬ tion class, drill daily to develop skills in taking dictation. When there ' s bookkeeping to be done not even a picture can disturb Burdette Banik and Phil Drescher. 43 Lessons Offer a Choice Between a Musical Overseeing the music education of Barb Krall and Barb Kelley is Mr. Snider, Clark’s senior band director. Ensembles are rehearsed by many band mem¬ bers for various contests. 44 Career or a Hobby As Webster puts it so aptly, “Music is an art of marking a pleasing or harmonious combination of tones.” This can be done through various avenues: choral groups or instrumental groups. It is important that everyone have the opportunity to study music: as it enriches one’s life. While in school, music gives every student an opportunity to express himself. Through music, students gain an interest in literature, history and art. No historic account is complete without music to give the mood of the time. Students also take a greater inte rest in perfection and order for music is not music without these. Music may be a career in itself or a profitable avocation. Music, seemingly unimportant, plays an important part in our everyday lives. What would a stage play or television program be without back¬ ground music to set the mood? One’s social life, too, would be empty without music. Music even gives spirit to many sport activities. Even though music might not be taken up as a career, after graduating a person may use his musical talents for relaxation, as a hobby, or even as enter¬ tainment. Music gives one an outlet for his feelings and brings out hidden ability in many people. One derives not only benefit and pleasure from the study of music, but a greater appreciation of life. Mr. Conyers, director of the junior and senior orchestras, instructs cellist Lynn Larsen in her musical techniques. The Girls’ Choir works to improve its technique under the direction of Mr. Church. During the seventh period the tonal achievements of this group can be heard throughout the lower halls. Membership in the choir is gained through an audition. Boys Display Culinary Tactics, Practice For the first time in several years male members of the student body gathered in Clark’s modern kitchen to try their hands at the creative art of cooking. Culinary students learned the fundamen¬ tals of cooking, the preparation of well-balanced meals, proper etiquette, and correct table setting techniques. To supplement this knowledge. Miss Ide took on the role of guest of honor as the students took turns in the roles of guest and host or hostess. The foods class also provided refreshments buffet style for the annual College Day. Mastering the rudiments of sewing is the goal of Beginning Clothing. Students learn the care and use of the machine, and then apply this skill by making a wrist pin cushion, a simple blouse, skirt, and dress. Each semester of sewing is geared to further the student’s skill. Girls in second semester clothing make a tailored blouse and simple suit. In Clothing III, the girls begin the practical aspect of sewing. First on the agenda is a dressy dress. Next is sewing for others, making over an old piece of clothing, and finally a project of their own choosing. Advanced clothing is concerned with tailoring a suit and a coat, and an additional project which could be designing an entire ensemble. Future homemakers Linda Baranowski and Ruthie Perhach learn and practice the techniques of homemaking and eti¬ quette in foods class by organizing home activities. Bulls in a china shop? Not really. Clark’s most recent male foods class proved as adept as the girls in the fine art of cooking. Could they be aiming for the Betty Crocker Award? There is a strong desire in every boy to want to make things with his hands and to express his ideas in a concrete form. Industrial arts in the high school provides the opportunity for developing this in¬ herent desire to create. To be well educated, a boy must be given train¬ ing and experience in keeping with the industrial age in which he lives. Industrial arts fulfills the need and desire for active and creative work. It stimulates and renews interests in school and offers useful facts about tools and materials for shop work. Mechanical drawing is given in order that the boy may be able to read blueprints, and make sketches and layouts of his work. Blueprint reading is a universal language which all tradesmen must understand and interpret. The objectives of the course are to develop habits of logical thinking and planning, the power of visualization, a working knowledge of illustrating graphically by means of free hand sketching. It also teaches the use of ele¬ mentary drawing tools, the ability to read prints, and encourages the student to seek occupational in¬ formation regarding all phases of drafting. Fine Arts and Skills Tim Merriman and Jack Murzyn receive first-hand technical training as Industrial Arts Instructor Mr. Dave Hein demon¬ strates the fine art of wood shop. Mechanical drawing classes are one of the bases of modern engineering. Future designers are working hard in order to complete a most important project. Mr. Ray Williams is never too busy to help one of his pupils. 47 Activities consumed an important Portion of every Clarkite’s school days. There was a club to suit every Student’s interests. Whether that interest Was science, music, speech work, Service to others, sports, Or just plain fun, there could be found A club devoted to each of these. Hard- Working students were rewarded with Membership in honor societies. All clubs formed a multi¬ purpose design in the Pattern at Clark.

The spon¬ sor, Mr. George Muir, has upheld the society’s goal of promoting excellence in high school journalism. The Clark chapter of the National Honor Society has initiated thirty-nine seniors and twenty-three juniors who met the 3.0 grade average and leadership entry qualifications. This year’s society sponsor was Mr. Arnold Corder. Among the National Honor Society’s projects was collecting funds to finance the broadcasting of Channel 11 in Chicago. Clark’s National Thespian Troupe 1769 was composed of students who have earned a total of twenty-five points by working on dramatic produc¬ tions. A point was earned at the completion of five hours of work in a particular field, such as costumes or props. Miss Jeani Knapp, the troupe sponsor, has helped to advance many a student’s knowledge of the dramatic and technical phases of the theater. The National Forensic League, sponsored by Mr. Arthur Erickson, spent the ’64-’65 season debating a question of nuclear arms control by an interna¬ tional organization. Participants in debate earned degrees through the point accumulation system. NATIONAL FORENSIC LEAGUE—Front row: B. Hered, C. Leskovich. Second row: H. Humphreys, C. Short, P. Kelso. Third row: R.

The Student Council, besides being the supreme governing body of the school, undertakes many bene¬ ficial projects and helps to beautify the school. Stu¬ dent Council, sponsored by Mr. Gerald Preusz, found itself involved in new and engrossing activities. In the fall the major project of the Council and the first Co-Presidents in Clark history was the magazine drive, which successfully raised the treasury funds to finance better assemblies. The coming of winter only brought more services and projects to the Council. Revising the constitu¬ tion and selling student directories were the first winter projects. Besides these endeavors, mirrors were installed in the halls. During this time, the Council also became a member of the Lake County- Association of Student Councils. Because of the ex¬ change of ideas between schools, this organization was very helpful to the Council. From the Lake County Association came the idea of “tie day” to boost school spirit. An end to the Council’s winter affairs came with intramural basketball and bowling, both more successful than ever before. Completing the year, the Council felt the satis¬ faction knowing that all previously set goals were reached. The election of new 1965-1966 officers and the Inaugural Ball on April 30 brought an end to another year of hard work. Council Headed by First Co-Presidents STUDENT REVIEW BOARD-Fron row: S.

The second meeting of the Lake County Association of Student Councils was held at Clark. Better student cooperation was subject of the meeting. Talent Show Sponsored by Latin Club The Latin Club was comprised of three divisions: the freshmen, the sophomore, and the advanced club. Under the leadership of Mrs. Lillian Wilcox, these three clubs worked together on many projects. Among their activities was the traditional Saturnalia. This year all language clubs joined together in the festivities. Skits, freshman initiation into the Latin Club, and a visit from Santa highlighted the party. Besides raising a considerable amount of money for the club, the annual slave auction was fun for both the “slaves” and their “masters”. The bake sale in March was another major fund-raising event. An innovation this year was a Talent Assembly in which many of the students displayed their individual skills. The banquet successfully completed the club’s yearly activities. Scholarships were awarded to three out¬ standing Latin students, Nick Bubnovich, Kathy Kowalski, and Mary Ann Poracky. The total membership of the three clubs was eighty-seven. For their active participation during four years in Latin Club, G. Brown, P. Clark, A. Dzurovcik, L. Halik, H. Humphreys, M. A. Poracky, P. Regashus, J. Ruf, and T. Todd received four-year membership pins at the Awards Assembly. Sponsored annually by the Latin Club, the slave auction provided fun for all those involved. Freshmen “slaves” re¬ ceived the traditional treatment by their " masters.” LATIN CLUB —Front row: T. Todd, J. Ruf, P. Clark, P. Regashus, L. Halik, A. Dzurovcik, H. Humphreys, G. Brown, M. A.

The French Club is a relatively new organization at G.R.C. composed of first year students, more experienced second-year students, and the truly adept third-year students. The group has grown steadily in three short years. Through the monthly meetings, the members not only attempted to be¬ come more fluent with the language but also in¬ vestigated the fascinating culture and interesting folklore of the land and people of France. As custo¬ mary, the club’s first act was the selection of officers. Sharon Granger served as President, Jan Pisowicz as Vice-President with Jeri Roy and Helen Stecy as secretary-treasurer and activities-chairman, respec¬ tively. Miss Sandra Sauvain sponsored the group. A wide variety of games not only provided the students with welcome enjoyment but aided in the enrichment of their French vocabulary. Some of these games included the French version of Bingo (Voici) and Scrabble. Singing well-known French ballads proved to be a big hit with the majority of the group. Some students attempted to demonstrate their ability as French playwrights with the presenta¬ tion of original skits and plays in the language. There are plans for a bigger, better French Club in the future. Miss Sandra Sauvain, head of the French Department and also the French Club spon¬ sor, is the driving force behind this organization. 55 Because of an increased membership, the German Club was once again organized into two separate groups based upon the advancement of the club members in the study of the German language. The young freshman club, was introduced to German by using such games as Bingo and Scrabble. Meetings for the advanced club were held the second Wednesdays of each month and were aided by the use of tapes and recordings made possible through the installation of the new language lab late last school year. The advanced club was mainly interested in dialogues and personal aspects of Ger¬ man life. Third and fourth year members, unable to take further German studies because of schedule difficulties, agreed to the need for this advanced club to be in contact with the “Deutsche” language. In cooperation with the other language clubs, the freshmen presented several skits and sang songs for their portion of the combined language department Christmas party held in December. The advanced club also staged a one-act play for entertainment. Both German clubs were combined in March to exchange ideas and activities and were under the guidance and sponsorship of Mrs. Renate Miller.

Presiding over the ad¬ vanced club was Tamsie Miskus. Assisting her were Jerry Milligan, Vice-President; Carol Whyte, Secre¬ tary and Pam Kelso, Treasurer. The officers of the beginning club were Donna Kalina, President; Debbie Levitt, Vice-President; Eileen Jancosek, Secretary; and Laurie Picklin, Treasurer. The clubs’ new sponsor was Mrs. Encinosa, a native of Cuba. Both clubs enjoyed listening to her interesting talks about life and customs of Cuba and other Latin American countries. Along with the lec¬ tures, Mrs. Encinosa shared some of her Spanish music with the clubs. This was highlighted by the Spanish version of “My Fair Lady”. Both sections of the club participated in preparing for the Spanish corner of the Christmas Party. Spanish songs and dances were exhibited as well as the breaking of a pinata full of candy. Both clubs also worked co-operatively on the car for homecom¬ ing. Although they worked together on many things, the division into the beginning and advanced sec¬ tions enabled the members to participate in activi¬ ties and games such as Bingo and Scrabble at a level beneficial to all club members.

Candy Sales Augment Uniform Fund At pep sessions and basketball games Clark’s pep band added musical enthusiasm to the spirit of the cheering section. The Senior Band, under the direction of Mr. Carlyle Snider, began the school year with an out¬ door concert during August. After school had start¬ ed, the band presented many programs of precision marching at home football games. It also participated in parades, concerts, solo and ensemble contests, and other various activities. The pep band, composed mainly of upper-class musicians, performed at pep rallies and all home basketball games. It assisted the cheerleaders and helped boost school spirit and team morale. The majorettes and pom-pom girls, sponsored by Miss Jeani Knapp worked diligently on their half¬ time shows in co-operation with the band at home football and basketball games. The annual Winter Concert was held in January. One of the highlights of the program was Ger¬ shwin’s “An American in Paris.” Mr. Robert Chese- bro, a newcomer to the Clark faculty, directed the Junior Band. On April 23, the band presented another seasonal program, the Spring Concert. Two marches by John Philip Sousa, “Stars and Stripes Forever,” and “Washington Post” were featured. Also at the Spring Concert, was the presentation of the traditional band keys to all the graduating mem¬ bers. A special gold key was awarded to Chuck Turpin voted most valuable senior by the band. 58 BAND— Front row: J. Bangert, S. Smith, B. Forbes, M. Rudser. Second rotv: L. Beeson, H. Humphreys, T. Miskus.

Big Weekend at Muncie Music Festival Mr. Michael Conyers demonstrates the usage of proper dynamics and tone quality in a string trio to two members of the orchestra, Nancy Cervone and Jim Condes. The Senior Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Michael Conyers, expanded its activities this year. Seven orchestra members played in the pit orches¬ tra for the Marian Theater Guild’s presentation of the “Sound of Music.” Later in the fall several gifted members were the weekend guests of Ball State Teacher’s College. These Clarkites, along with young musicians from many other Indiana high schools, improved their techniques by observing the College string instruc¬ tors. They climaxed their visit by participating in a concert given by the Ball State Orchestra. Orchestra members followed this year’s Home¬ coming theme of mythology by creating a Greek ship for the homecoming parade and placed third. The orchestra’s winter concert was highlighted by the Corelli “Christmas Concerto” and the “Wau¬ kegan Concerto” famous for the Jack Benny theme. Many orchestra members played in string groups for their various churches during the Christmas season and also school assemblies. Spring plans include the all school musical, a spring concert, participation in the annual Ham¬ mond Music Festival and Commencement. ORCHESTRA—Front row: K. Holman, N. Cervone, J. Kroll, H.

Their first appearance before the Clark faculty and student body was a Thanksgiving assembly. “Now Thank We All Our God,” “God of Our Fathers,” and “Bless This House” were some of the songs featured. Following the Thanksgiving assembly was a holi¬ day program which was given before Christmas vacation. A Brass Choir accompanying the choirs on familiar carols highlighted the program. This assembly was the Senior Orchestra’s first perform¬ ance before an audience this year. The group of strings played Antonio Vivaldi’s “Christmas Con¬ certo” and other numbers. The high point of this assembly was the Concert Choir’s rendition of “The Night Before Christmas. ’ The Choir had enjoyed giving a similar performance for the Clark-Franklin Parent Teachers Association a week earlier. It was dramatized by Miss Knapp, and directed and accompanied by Mr. Church. A week after the students had returned to school from their winter vacation, the Choral Department gave one of its more important yearly affairs — the annual Winter Concert. The Girls’ Choir sang “This Little Babe” from Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” and “Snow,” which was written by our director, Mr. Darrell Church. Singing folk songs and anthems were the Girls’ and Boys’ Choruses. The Concert Choir sang “Lovely Appear” by Charles Gounod, “Miserere Mei” by Antonio Lotti, “Born, Born in Bethlehem,” a con¬ temporary song by David Davenport and “America —Our Heritage.” Accompanists for this part of the concert were Lynn Halik and Mary Rudser. Last year at their Spring Concert, the Choral Department featured the operetta, “The Lowland Sea.” For their Winter Concert this year, the depart¬ ment switched to a lighter side and featured a “Panorama of Popular Music” that included tunes from the 20’s to the present time. The program contained “Teasers” from many popular musicals: “West Side Story,” “The Sound of Music,” “The Music Man,” “Carosel” and “My Fair Lady.” Bob Harper narrated and announced the soloists: Louise Clark, John Schaffenberger, and Lois Mrzlock. All the choirs, choruses and ensembles, the entire com¬ pany of 175 voices, sang “With A Song In My Heart” to conclude a splendid concert. As a rest from singing, the Choral Department journeyed to Chicago in the later part of January to see the musical “Oliver.” It felt good to hear someone else do the singing for a change!

The club had its largest membership this year with 127 juniors and seniors enrolled. Three seniors held office in the Forum Club. Nick Bubnovich served as president, Tim Simko was vice-president, and Kathy Flaris held the post of secretary-treasurer. A change was made in the organization of the Forum Club with the introduc¬ tion of a cabinet. Gary Gurevitz was appointed chairman. He was assisted by Bev Liehe, Lynn Dostatni, and Marianne Murzyn. The cabinet regulated the policies and activities of the Forum Club. Among the club’s activities during the year were the Springfield trip, the adoption of an overseas orphan, the UNICEF Christmas card drive, a hoot¬ enanny, a clothing drive, and trips to downtown Chicago to see MY FAIR LADY and OLIVER! Climaxing the school year was the Forum Club trip to Mexico. A Mexicana jet wisked the Clarkites across the border for five nights and six days. The travelers took sight seeing trips of Mexico City by day as well as by night, visiting museums, famous cathedrals, the floating gardens, and other historical places of interest around the city. They also toured the University of Mexico and various government buildings. A highlight of the trip was a bull fight, which most Clarkites agreed they would never for¬ get. The Mexico trip provided a fitting climax to a busy year for all Forum Club members. Augh Ngo Nga, 10-year old orphan from South Vietnam, was re-adopted this year by the Forum Club. FORUM CLUB OFFICERS-Mr. Heslin, sponsor; Mr. Charlet, sponsor; B. Liehe, K. Flaris, L. Dostatni, M. A. Murzyn, T. Simko, N. Bubnovich. Kathy Flaris, secretary-treasurer of the Forum Club, adds data about the Mexico trip to the club bulletin board. One of the many projects for Forum Club was the collection of old clothing for the needy in Cook County Hospital. Echoing strains of “Go You Pioneers” and “Cheer for Dear” rang through the halls of G. R. C. as the members of Clark’s Booster Club fulfilled the task of boosting all school activities. The slogan “Pioneers we’re with you!” appeared on this years’ booster button, encircling the head of “Little George”, the school mascot. These booster buttons, as well as membership cards, were distribut¬ ed to members upon the payment of dues. During the Holiday Tourney, the booster block took on a new look as the members donned blue capes to create an eye catching checkerboard design. A great responsibility of the Booster Club was chartering buses to away games. Spirited members followed the athletes to Valparaiso, South Bend, Tolleston, Gary and even Muncie. The many projects sponsored by Booster Club con¬ sume a good portion of each members’ time. Stuffing- chicken wire for floats, painting signs and organizing a sectional cheering block kept many students after school into the evening hours. Under the watchful eye of Mr. John W. Mybeck, the club was successful in achieving its goal — that of the brand of sportsmanship, traditional at Clark. BOOSTER CLUB OFFICERS-Mr. Mybeck, Sponsor; Judy Rybarczyk, Treasurer; Mary Ann Poracky, Secretary; Debbie Dickey, Vice-President; Bob Harper, President. Boosters’ Enthusiasm Never Diminishes The real enthusiasm of Booster Club is evident as cheering Clarkites rouse their team to victory at the Civic Center. Senior boosters demonstrate their G.R.C. spirit by hanging signs for the annual winter vocal music concert. Student Teachers Speak at Meetings F.T.A. OFFICERS-Barb Boncela, secretary; Mary Ann Por- acky, president; Beth Forbes, treasurer; Carol Shimala, vice- president; and Carol Whyte, program chairman. The Future Teachers of America provided an ex¬ cellent opportunity for high school students to further their interest in teaching careers. Guided by Miss McCampbell, the club participated in Educa¬ tion Week Open House and the annual Food Fair. Club members gave service as assistants to ele- mentarv classroom teachers. While “student teach¬ ing,” club members can learn by this practical experience if teaching is what they really want to do in life. In addition to this, F.T.A. members benefitted from talks with student teachers assigned to Clark. These young men and women tvere able to provide first-hand information about college re¬ quirements and teacher preparation. Movies, pictur¬ ing life and learning at various colleges, were shown at meetings to give future teachers a pictorial esti¬ mation of what college will be like. These films also helped students to pick the college that would offer them the most both scholastically and socially. The Indiana State Teachers Association and the National Teachers Association supply the group with pamphlets as supplementary reading material. F.T.A. officers included Mary Ann Poracky, Presi¬ dent; Carol Shimala, Vice President; Beth Forbes, Secretary; Barb Boncela, Treasurer; and Carol Whyte, Program Chairman. F.T.A.—Front row: L.

The club meets every fourth Wednesday of the month. At each monthly meeting, an alumni or a representative from an industry speaks to the girls giving them a preview of a typical day at the office. The girls are acquainted with the business world by receiving information on job applications, office procedures, and the duties of a secretary. The girls subscribe to a magazine called TO¬ DAY’S SECRETARY. Each issue contains a daily typing speed test, glossary and vocabulary boosters, stories in shorthand, articles on celebrities and their secretaries, and a section on personal appearance. Members of the advanced shorthand class also have an opportunity to join the Calumet-Lakeshore Chapter of the Future Secretaries Association spon¬ sored by the Skyway Chapter of the National Secre¬ taries Association. Membership is open to girls interested in the secretarial field, and who maintain above average scholarship grades. Girls from six different schools compose the membership. Meet¬ ings are held once a month at one of the six schools. The Future Secretaries’ Club is not a money-mak¬ ing club. Its chief aim is to help the girls become better secretaries of the future. Before a monthly meeting of Future Secretaries Club, Sharon Gross, president and Mary Ann Murzyn, secretary-treasurer preview a dictation practice recording. FUTURE SECRETARIES—Fro nt row: P.

The members shelve returned books and file returned magazines. They repair damaged books and magazines and prepare new books for circulation. Several times during the year, the Library Club erects displays recognizing the works of some famous author. The club members also learn the use of the card catalog and the readers guide so that they can quickly locate books and magazines. In addition to these activities, the stu¬ dents work during each of the seven class periods, as well as before and after school. The decorating of the Christmas tree, the annual Christmas party, and the pre-summer vacation picnic are some of the extra projects performed by the Library Club. The Literary Club consists of thirty-six female students interested in the cultural aspects of life. The Club, under the sponsorship of Miss Carolyn Lambert, enables its members to broaden their liter¬ ary and cultural backgrounds. The group, which meets twice monthly, discusses and interprets dramatic works. The members also listen to many distinctive styles of folk music, and read as well as analyze the greatest poems of America’s most famous poets. Elected this year as president of the Literary Club was Liz Kollmar. Serving her as vice-president was Claudia Clark, and acting as secretary-treasurer was Marilyn Cison. The program for each meeting was prepared by Mary Beth McLaughlin. LITERARY CLUB— Front row: J. Matlon, C. Marinaro, B. Trebs, L. Kollmar, M. B. McLaughlin, M. Cison, C. Clark, J. Conrad, S.

Biology Club was composed of students who have an avid interest in life, for biology is the study of life. Membership was highly selective; only students with two semesters of biology were eligible to join. This year Biology Club members were directing their attentions toward projects for the Science Fair. They were conducting extensive experiments and research to apply to a thoroughly analyzed project with hopes of bringing science honors to Clark. The Biology Club was also making movies of the di¬ section of various animals. These will later be used as educational aids for biology students. The char¬ acteristics of plant pigments were examined in an experiment conducted by the entire club. Club mem bers journeyed to the Argonne National Laboratory. The specialized equipment proved fascinating as stu¬ dents toured the laboratory. Information was fur¬ nished by an experienced guide heading the tour. The club also planned a trip to the Indiana Dunes State Park to study plant and animal life, Turtox Biological Supply House, and Michael Reese Hospi¬ tal to view facilities. Miss Wanda Wilharm and Mr. Edward Powell were co-sponsors of the club. Through experience, students increased their inter¬ ests in life sciences. D. Whitten and T. Yearsich find that their scientific curiosity can be satisfied as members of the Biology Club. Biology Club Tours Argonne Laboratory BIOLOGY CLUB—Front row. T. Yearsich, J. Vrabel, J. Brodowski, D.

Interesting guest speakers at meetings helped Y- Teens to better understand themselves. Helping others and growing in the love and knowledge of God were accomplished by all Y-Teen members through service projects performed during the year. An innovation this year was the start of after school meetings. This brought to the club only those girls truly interested in Y-Teens and the community services that they perform. An outstanding service project was the Christmas party held for the Carmelite Home for Boys. The highpoint of this party was the appearance of Santa Claus and his Eskimo helper, graciously played by Mr. Martin and Mr. Mueller. Food, entertainment, presents for every boy and the cooperation of every member helped to make this Christmas project a huge and rewarding success for all who attended. The Y-Teens added to their funds by selling year¬ book covers and by the annual potato chip sale. The Y-Teen Club trained every member for her role in society as a woman and as a leader. The pure delight mirrored in the expression of this orphan’s face was typical of that of the faces of all the boys from the Carmelite Home who attended the Y-Teens Christmas party.

HI-Y OFFICERS-Bob Moynihan, president; Terry Wiak, vice-president; Jim Ormes, secretary-treasurer; and Dennis Sheffield, sargeant-at-arms. Service, fellowship, and leadership were among the principles of any high school Hi-Y organization. The Clark Hi-Y, under the direction of Mr. Oral Watkins, was able to accomplish success in each of these fundamental principles. President Bob Moyni¬ han and fellow officers, Vice-President Terry Wiak, Secretary, Dennis Sheffield, and Treasurer Jim Ormes, led the club in directing its activities. This year the Clark Senior Hi-Y contributed gift- baskets to the needy families of the Calumet Region during both the Christmas and Easter seasons. Each boy brought cans, cartons, and boxes of foods and vegetables which were later distributed by the of¬ ficers and members. In order to increase the treasury funds, the entire club sponsored a car wash in the spring. Because the Hi-Y supplied the soft drinks for all the school dances, the freshman section of the club took charge of distributing the refreshments. In the field of sports, Clark’s chapter of the Hi-Y was successful in dominating the city basketball tournament for the fifth consecutive year. An in¬ vitational softball tournament was originated as a newly scheduled sports activity. The club hopes to lengthen its program next year and to achieve higher goals through sound bodies.

The Clark Future Nurses’ Club, formed in 1951, was the first nurses’ club in the schools of the Ham¬ mond and Whiting area. The club obtained a charter from the National League for Nursing in July, 1964. Formerly, the club’s membership was confined only to junior and senior girls who were serious¬ ly planning to pursue the nursing profession. The membership is now open to any girl in high school. The purpose of the club is to interest high school students, not only in nursing, but in other health careers such as an X-ray, medical, dental, or lab technician, dental hygienist, occupational or physi¬ ological therapist, or dietician. The members of the club are encouraged to visit hospitals and to render community services whenever possible. The club’s programs are centered around speakers from various health and social agencies combined with illustrative films and slides. The Nurses’ Club has given generously to com¬ munity health and social agencies. Some of the con¬ tributions have been a loom bench to the Special Service School, gifts and contributions for the past five years to the mentally ill at Beatty Hospital in Westville, contributions to the Illinois Epilipsy League, and to the Lake County Crippled Children. Health Careers Club Obtains Charter By working in the Nurse ' s Of¬ fice active members of the Health Careers Club, Kathy Best, Joan Varellas, and Debbie Etter, ac¬ quire skills which will be use¬ ful in their future careers. 72 Clothing Drive Sponsored to Aid Needy To inform the Clark student body of their club’s activities, Red Cross officers constructed a hall display. Seeing a child smile when he receives a new pair of shoes or a grandmother’s eyes fill with tears while listening to Christmas carols may be the result of the work of the G.R.C. Red Cross. To help others is not a material reward but one of spiritual value. The Red Cross tries to reach out and help every in¬ dividual with his own, personal needs. The Red Cross occupies most of its time perform¬ ing worthwhile services for others. The Mitten Tree, Clothing Drive, Gift Chest and Beatty Memorial Hospital were only a few of the various activities in which the members participated throughout the school year, in order to help their fellow man. The main project was the showing of the Red Cross film, “The Wackiest Ship In The Army. " Through this endeavor each student was able to register in the Red Cross and contribute to child relief by sending gift boxes to them overseas. The electing of new officers for the next school year rounded out a successful year for the Senior Red Cross. Janet Beeson presided over the meetings; Linda Beard assisted in the various matters; Linda Caston recorded the minutes and Becky Gootee handled the finances. Miss Ide was the sponsor.

Prospers Under New Sponsor The “Shutterbugs” at Clark have an opportunity to practice their hobby and learn more about the art of photography by joining the Photography Club. Members employ their skill at assemblies, dances and games. Some of their pictures are used in the POWDER HORN and for other school publicity. Besides having the privilege of using the fine cameras in their work, the photographers have access to the well-equipped darkroom where they develop and print their own pictures. This year’s membership, totaling sixteen boys, is the largest the club has ever had. Mr. Arthur Erickson, commonly know to the boys as “Mr. E.” is sponsor of the Photography Club. The Audio Visual Operators Club is one of the largest service organizations in our school. Mr. Thomas, head of the audio visual department, spon¬ sors and co-ordinates all functions and activities of the club. The current membership is approximately fifty boys. The duties of A.V.O. members vary wide¬ ly. They may be found taking care of microphones for assemblies, tape recorders for dances, as well as movie and slide projectors for classroom use. The boys receive points for their work which are accum¬ ulated toward letters. This organization is entirely voluntary and provides invaluable service to the school and useful experience to the boys.

The Stage Crew may be considered as the most vital organization as far as the dramatics depart¬ ment is concerned. Without this crew, the operations necessary for putting on a play, concert, or assembly, could become minor catastrophes. For the many jobs that are necessary, the members require a certain amount of skill and preparation. Basically, the Stage Crew consists of a group of students who know what to do with lights, props, curtains, make-up, and all the various details that are needed in the dramatics department. These are the students who are responsible for having the vari¬ ous performances run as smoothly and as efficiently as they have this year. This year, the crew’s major venture was per¬ forming a revue. This revue was done as an assembly before the entire student body. It included skits, black-outs, production numbers, and dances. Not only did the members of the crew perform, but they also wrote all the material that was used. In their monthly meetings, Stage Crew members learn the basics of the jobs that they might be asked to perform. They learn how to light a set that they themselves have built. Sewing costumes that were designed by Miss Knapp; ironing these same costumes or actually performing in them are all a part of a Stage Crew member’s job. STAGE CREW—Front row : C. Crowd, L.

The Pioneer Neius, which is under the sponsorship of Mr. George Muir, has completed its thirty-second consecutive year of publication. Thirty-four mimeo¬ graphed weekly issues were produced and distribut¬ ed during the 1964-65 school year. The first edition, as well as the Thanksgiving, sectional, Easter, and senior editions were highlighted with pictures. Many workers were needed to perform the tasks required for the publication of the P. N. With the help of page writers, typists, proof readers, mimeo- graphers, paper folders, and countless others, the Pioneer News was ready to be passed out to the stu¬ dents every Friday morning. Correspondents also conveyed G.R.C. news from the P. N. to the Ham¬ mond Times and the Whiting Times-Graffic. Delegates from the Pioneer News were sent to the Northern Indiana Journalism Institute at Val¬ paraiso University, and the Chicago Tribune Journa¬ lism Seminar. Barb Vaughan, editor, and assistant editor, Geri Dzurovcik, attended the Indiana High School Journalism Institute at Indiana University. Clark ' s school newspaper, the Pioneer News, is presently a member of many honor societies. It is enrolled in the National Scholastic Press Associa¬ tion, the Columbia University Scholastic Press, and the Quill and Scroll Society.

Powder Horn Editor in-Chief Holly Humphreys and Associate When the girls have moments of great exasperation, Mr. Editor Connie Masura sort through material for the yearbook. Muir, the Powder Horn sponsor, helps to settle the crisis. Innovations-RandomCopy, Colored Prints The 1965 POWDER HORN is a record of student life at George Rogers Clark High School during the academic year of 1964-1965. Preparing the yearbook was not an easy task. Work started in the spring of 1964 when editor Holly Humphreys and her assist¬ ant editor, Connie Masura, selected members for the POWDER HORN staff. Newly appointed staff members were given a briefing on their individual jobs at the Valparaiso University High School Jour¬ nalism Institute. The information they gained here has proven invaluable in performing their duties throughout the year. In July, the editor and her assistant attended the Indiana University High School Journalism Institute. During the two weeks they spent there, the theme for the 1965 Powder Horn, “Patterns in Education”, was chosen and the dummy prepared. In the fall, staffers began writing stories, taking and cropping pictures and soliciting ads. To encourage yearbook sales, subscription drives were held in September and November. Upperclass¬ men representatives organized yearbook sales in each of the homerooms. The salesman who sold the highest number of yearbooks was rewarded with a free copy of the POWDER HORN. After complet¬ ing deadlines, staff members proofread sections of the book as they were returned from the printers, in order to present the book to students at the annual Signature Dance. The literary editors, Pat Golembiewski, Mary Ann Poracky, and Kathy Kowalski, supervised and edited the writing of all copy for the entire 1965 POWDER HORN. 78 First row: POWDER HORN FACULTY EDITORS: Nick Bubnovich and Tim Beaudrie.

Joan Paylo and Bo Jarabak discuss a story. After the deadline date had been reached Barb Vaughan, Holly Humphreys, and Mary Ann Poracky had time to " gab.” 80 Work Long, Hard The news of G.R.C. reaches midwest high schools through the efforts of the Exchange Editors Bev Liehe and Nancy Gora. Sports-minded Larry Fuchs checks over stories as Sports Edi¬ tor, while Faculty Editor and " Mr. Do-It-All” Nick Bubnovich crops one of the many pictures for the Powder Horn. Working hard to meet that final deadline are P. H. staff members, Tamsie Miskus, index, and Barb Bugajski, typist- index, who work on the technical side of production. One of the monumental tasks confronting the production staff is the endless folding of papers for the Pioneer News. Paul Companik, Connie Dostatni, Jim Juricic, Marge Tkach, Tom Michalak, Lynn Halik, Janellen Stipulin, and Sharon O’Drobinak “fold, crease, and press " papers before and after school in order to meet constant deadlines. Enlivened spirit inspired Clark Athletes to great heights. The Pioneer Racketmen finished second in The Northwest Conference. Two Clark grapplers gained firsts in The sectionals. Linksmen participated In the state finals. Stickmen defeated cross-town rival Whiting. Trackmen established Three school records. Roundballers defeated Gavit in The sectionals. Harriers finished fourth In the Northwest Conference. The Pioneer Athletes can boast a successful year. PATTERNS Harriers Post Twelve Victories in ’64 The Clark Cross-Country team completed a very successful season this year. The Harriers began the new season with six straight victories. These victories were over T. F. South, Tech (twice), Horace Mann. Highland, and Morton. The Pioneers then collided with Hammond High and Valpo but were defeated handily by the scores of 44-17 and 40-20. After these two defeats, the Harriers again were on a winning streak. They went seven straight meets without losing a contest. Although they tied Emer¬ son, the Shieldsman defeated E. C. Roosevelt, Gary Tolleston, E. C. Washington, Gary Lew Wallace, Gary Horace Mann, and cross-town rival Whiting. This put the Pioneers record at 12-2-1. In the sectionals, the Shieldsmen journeyed to Crown Point. In this very important meeting, the Pioneers finished eighth. The Northwest Conference became the next meet. The Harriers finished in 13th place out of twenty-five schools. In the last meet of the season, Coach Shields’ boys participated in a meet with Morton and Whiting. In this meet, the Pioneers were able to blast Whiting, but were defeated by Morton. Senior letter winners this year were Vrabel, Had¬ dad, Hatczel, Ruf, Simko, and Dzurovcik. Darryl Kirk and Bob Shourek, along with other prospective Frosh-Soph Harriers, will try to better the great record of the 1964 country team. CROSS COUNTRY—Front row: B. Haddad, B. Hatczel, T.

Clark’s Cross Country team finished fourth in the Northwest Conference. 84 Clark’s football “brain trust” coaches Hopek, Peterson, and Williams discuss strategy before Highland game. Their strategy proved good as the Pioneers ripped Highland 21-6. The 1964 Pioneer football team showed new spirit in their first appearance at Whiting’s Football-O- Rama, in which Whiting tied Clark 0 to 0 and Washington edged out the Pioneers 6 to 0. The stubborn Pioneer defense was instrumental in down¬ ing Morton’s Governors for the first time in five years by the score of 7 to 0. The Pioneers matched Roosevelt’s Rough Riders in spirit and ferocious con¬ tact but Roosevelt’s break-away speed tipped the fighting Pioneers 20 to 6. Clark pleased a massive homecoming crowd by tromping Highland 21 to 7. Wallace’s first place conference team beat the Pioneers 21 to 0. The Hammond High Wildcats downed the Pioneers 28 to 7 by capitalizing on Clark mistakes. Hammond Tech then sneaked past Clark 6 to 0 in a defensive battle. Gavit, in a second-half splurge, conquered the Pioneers 33 to 13. The Pioneers ended the season by beating the Whiting Oilers in every department but scoring, where Whit¬ ing tied the Pioneer team 13 to 13. This year a new spirit of teamwork was generated within the Pioneer ranks under new head coach A1 Peterson. Playing the toughest brand of football teams in the state, the Pioneers will continue up¬ ward in their quest for football excellence. Pioneer Gridmen Down Governors 7-0 VARSITY FOOTBALL—Front row.

In the first game of the season, the Settlers were completely overwhelmed by a powerful Morton squad and fell to a 20-0 disadvantage in the first half. The Settlers were consoled by Jerry Milligan’s eighty- yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter, but by this time the game was out of reach. The final score was 26-6. Hindered by a lack of reserves, the Set¬ tlers lost their second game of the season to a rough Gavit team by a score of 20-0. Playing with a squad of only fifteen men, the Settlers battled Hammond High to a 0-0 tie. Don Abercrombie, Rich Bailey, and Art Seth displayed an outstanding offensive at¬ tack but were unable to provide a sustained scoring drive. In the final game of the season, the Settlers tangled with the Hammond Tech Tigers, the City Champions. The final score of this lopsided contest was 32-0 with the Settlers emerging on the short end once again. The Settlers have high hopes of greatly improving their record next season. The frosh gridmen opened the highly successful 1964 season against a tough E. C. Roosevelt team. The Homesteaders displayed excellent ball control and battled Roosevelt to a 6-6 tie. The freshmen tied Munster 6-6 in the second game on a four-yard touchdown run by George Yearsich. The following game matched the Homesteaders against the Morton Governors. After a see-saw duel, the frosh emerged with a 19-13 victory. George Year¬ sich scored two douchdowns to lead the team to a 19-7 win over Gavit. The Homesteaders won their third in a row by upsetting Hammond Tech 14-0. Randy Plys scored three touchdowns as the frosh downed the Whiting Oilers 32-6. Boasting a record of four victories and two ties, the Homesteaders journeyed to Hammond High for the championship game. The Homesteaders needed a win or a tie to capture the city title. The frosh played an excellent game and tied Hammond 0-0 to become the new Hammond City Champions. B-SQUAD FOOTBALL—Front row. L. Burch, Mgr.; A. Seth, Buehler, E. Offredo, J. Milligan, R. Bailey, B.

The Set¬ tlers lost three games by one point, one by two points, one by three points, and dropped one game in overtime. After starting the season with wins over Munster and Hobart, the Settlers couldn’t buy a break and lost eight out of their next nine games. The B-squad, under the direction of Coach Hein, showed improvement in the latter part of the season by winning four out of seven games. The Settlers downed Tech, Munster, Griffith and Gavit. The season was culminated in a thrilling overtime loss to Gary Froebel 66-65. Many members of the B-squad gained valuable experience playing in varsity games. The Pioneer freshman basketball team ended its season with a record of seven victories and eight defeats. The Homesteaders started out on the wrong foot by losing to E. C. Roosevelt and Hammond Tech. The frosh then came back to down Gavit, Whiting, and Hammond High. The following two games found the Homesteaders on the short-end, as they were upended by Morton and Noll. The frosh then rolled over Calumet in preparation for the Freshman Tournament. In the tourney the Home¬ steaders edged Hammond High but lost to E. C. Roosevelt in the semi-finals. Following the tourney the Homesteaders lost to E. C. Washington, T. F. North, and E. C. Roosevelt before downing Whiting and Tech to end the season with a fine record. 94 The 1964 Clark Golf team became our first Golf team ever to participate in the state finals. Den Burk, Ken Kantowski, Tim Mihalso, and Charles Wolf set a record for 4-men shooting 18 holes each at a low 335 strokes. Den Burk also set a 9-hole individual record of 36 in the Sectional Meet. Their score enabled the team to place third in the Sectionals. This allowed the Golf team to travel to Indianapolis for the state finals and to meet other sectional qualifiers at the Coffin Golf Course. However, in the state finals, our team made a fine showing and finished 19th. Finishing 19th out of all the teams in the state of Indiana is an honor. Den Burk was a medalist in the Hammond City meet with a score of 80. Coach Oral Watkins guided the team not only to these successes but also to a fine overall record of 16 victories and 8 defeats in dual meets. Losing only to Hammond High and E. C. Washington, our boys’ 7-2 record tied Clark for second place in the North¬ west Indiana Conference. Bob Bubnovich, fifth man on the team last year, will be the only returning letterman. Last year’s strong B-team is expected to fill the vacated positions left open by the graduation of four seniors. Adding all this up, Coach Watkins is looking forward to another fine season at Lake Hills Country Club. Fairwaymen Compete in State Tourney J. Ruf, C. Carter, T. Simko, and R.

The season was highlighted by four consecutive mid¬ season wins including an overwhelming victory over Whiting by a score of 95-14 and third place finishes in both the city indoor and outdoor meets. Three school records fell during the 1964 season. Leading the record-breakers was Jim Antilla with a 6’1” high jump. Bob Hatczel smashed the record for the mile run, while Tom Yearsich broke the Frosh- Sopli shot put record with the longest throw in Clark’s history. A fourth school record was broken by the mile relay team but was unfortunately nulli¬ fied due to an illegal baton exchange. Other praise¬ worthy performances include Bob Hatczel’s city championship in the mile run, and John Schaffen- berger’s championship in the Frosh-Soph 880. Jim Antilla’s consistency in the high jump enabled him to qualify for the Regionals in that event. The second annual Clark Relays was held in May. The meet was very successful with 12 teams participating. Eleven of the twenty lettermen will return for another season. They are the following: Tom Vrabel, Tom Yearsich, Paul Ratkovich, Ron Yates, Jerry Novak, Dave Sallay, Ben Ferko, Ron Hoelting, Bob Hatczel, Bill Haddad, and Daryl Kirk.

Athletes who earn their major letter automatically become eligible for membership in the C-Club. The Lettermen’s Club maintained its reputation of being one of the most active organizations in the school. C-Club members sold popcorn after school and at various home athletic events. During the basketball season members of the club served as ushers at all home games. The C-Club sponsored the blue and white game and the annual in and out game at the end of the basketball season. The Let¬ termen’s Club held their dance the first week after Lent and it proved to be a success. In the latter part of the year the C-Club sponsored a car wash to raise money to buy trophies for the C-Club banquet and winter jackets for deserving members. The highlight of the year was the annual C-Club banquet held in May. At the banquet awards were presented to Clark’s outstanding athletes.

The girls per- leaders, Barbara Barr, Ava Markonni, Jan Michalak, and Mari- formed many new cheers because of training at cheering camp. The Cheerleaders chosen this year to lead the yells for the Freshman team were (clockwise) Debbie Levitt, Linda Span- ier, Donna Kalina, and Laurie Picklin. B-Squad cheerleaders Lynda Poison, Lynn Dostatni, Cindy Pajak, and Diane Krajnak were seldom this motionless when cheering at B-team basketball games. Gym Classes Host Student Teachers, At the beginning of every gym class period is a ritual which every girl looks forward to. Exercises, such as jumping-jacks. knee-bends, push-ups, squat-thrusts, and rag-dolls, are done as a group in order to “warm up " the girls ' muscles. 102 Assembly Shows Skill in Tumbling Only one of the many feats performed by boys in physical education class is the handstand executed by Bob Brown. Because physical fitness means a great deal at Clark, Mr. Franklin’s gym classes participate in a large variety of sports. Football, basketball, volley¬ ball, and gymnastics are some of the activities aimed at keeping boys in top physical condition. Freshmen, who are required to partake in two semesters of physical education, constitute a large number of Coach Franklin’s students. Sportsmanship is stressed and instructions regarding the rules and regulations of many vigorous and popular sports ate emphasized. All activities are put on a competitive basis and inspire each student to try harder to put himself “on top.” Student teacher Douglas Hendrickson gave valu¬ able assistance during part of the year by instructing Clark boys in fundamental exercises. The importance of physical fitness is stressed as Jack Pavlovich and Ken Solkey do push-ups in gym class. TUMBLING CLUB—Front row: B. Chmiel, F. Foreman, T. Galus, A. Elbaor, B. Bryson, B. Barr, J.

To be eligible for membership a girl must participate and major in two sports. Sports for major-seekers consisted of softball, swimming, bowling, and basketball. A volleyball Christmas Party and the Roller Dome Skating Night were added to the agenda. The World Series added spirit to the annual GAC picnic. The girls, grouped according to National and American League baseball teams, participated in softball, volleyball, and even football. The pie eating contest and the scavenger hunt highlighted the day at Marquette Park. At the traditional Mother-Daughter Banquet held in May, awards were presented; numeral, monogram, or letter earners were honored, and new officers were announced and installed. Under the able sponsorship of Miss Doris Myers, the Girls’ Athletic Club has remained one of the largest and one of the most active clubs of the school. In each of its activities, the club promotes physical fitness through fun and education. This year attendance at volleyball gave G.A.C. members the opportunity to gain additional points for awards while participating in an active social group. G.A.C. OFFICERS—Barb Vaughan, vice-president; Gloria Duplaga, head-of-sports; Nancy Gora, president; Janellen Stipulin, secretary; Tamsie Miskus, treasurer; Miss Myers.

These students along with 200 other Clarkites Beverly Liehe, and George Humphreys wait eagerly for their helped to make intramural bowling a great success. Intramural Sports Prove Successful Senior Ralph Serafin sets his sights on the basket during the intramural basketball all-star game. Once again the Student Council sponsored a very successful intramural sports program. Students eager¬ ly participated in intramural basketball, bowling and volleyball during the school year. For the second year intramural basketball proved to be a great success. More than one hundred boys took part in the programs. Team captains were selected, and ten basketball teams were formed. The teams were divided into two divisions. The winners of each division met in the championship game at the end of the season. There was also an all-star game featuring the best players of each division. This year much interest was aroused in the new intramural bowling program. More than 150 Clark¬ ites signed up for intramural bowling. Because of the large number of students interested in intra¬ mural bowling, a new program was adopted. More than forty teams composed of five players were formed. Trophies were awarded to the best team and to the boy and girl bowling the highest game. Intramural volleyball once again proved to be the most successful intramural sport. A tournament was set up with competition between the members of each homeroom. The winning homeroom received a plaque designating their victory. 105 106 Clarkites are people who need People. Students and Faculty followed a pattern established by The School Board. They were closely Knit together in classes And out. Underclassmen began Their high school Years, as Seniors put the Finishing touches on their designs in the Pattern. The cooks And the custodians worked Silently to keep our school running Efficiently. Many people working together Molded Clark’s atmosphere. PATTERNS IN CLARKITES Lockey Heads Efficient Administration Did anyone lose a book? Can’t get a locker open? These and many other reasons send students scurrying to the office to seek help from one of the efficient workers there. The staff, Mrs. Laura Carl¬ son, secretary to Mr. Lockey; Mrs. Mae-Marie Adley, secretary to Mr. Corder; Miss Charlene Salle, book¬ keeper; and Mrs. Barbara Hendricks, typist, is al¬ ways eager to assist the student in any way possible. Though always busy, the office staff’s work increas¬ ed with the introduction of the new IBM method of report cards. As is the case with all new ideas, much explanation was needed for both teachers and students. Through the patience of the office per¬ sonnel, however, the system is now understood and is beginning to prove its usefulness. The principal’s office is one of the most impor¬ tant parts of any school, and Clark’s is no exception. Within the confines of Mr. Lockey’s office, some of the most significant matters of school business are discussed and decided. Clark’s “Number One Booster,” Mr. Durward D. Lockey, is also very active outside of school. He is a past president and still active member of the Ham¬ mond Lions Club. He also participates in many other civic and school organizations. Mr. Lockey’s hobbies include golf, bowling on the faculty team, and gardening. Mr. D. D. Lockey, principal at George Rogers Clark School has stressed a program of student-faculty cooperation and school spirit in his four years as administrator. The conscientious office staff consisting of Mrs. Carlson, Mrs. Adley, Charlene Salle, and Mrs. Hendricks assist in running the school efficiently. School Board Re-Organizes System The Hammond Board of Education, legally des ignated as the Board of School Trustees, is organized under an Act of the 1949 State Legislature. The Board consists of five members elected by popular vote on a non-partisan ballot for terms of four years. At present the Board consists of Dr. Henry W. Eggers, President; Mrs. Claire D. Stern, secretary; Mr. Leo Bereolos, treasurer; and Mr. Charles W. Scott and Mrs. Margaret J. Allen, members. The Board of School Trustees is charged with the re¬ sponsibility of organizing, financing, and governing the local school system officially known as the School City of Hammond. The Board elects its own of¬ ficers at the first of each year. In order to conduct school city affairs and to accomplish its responsibilities as required by law and for the most effective benefit to the city and the state, the Board of School Trustees employs a superintendent of schools, an assistant superinten¬ dent, a director and an assistant director of elemen¬ tary education, a director of attendance and child welfare, a business manager, a purchasing agent, an accountant, an engineer of maintenance of build¬ ings and grounds, and an attorney as its advisory and administrative staff. As Superintendent, Dr. Joseph Hendricks presided over the Hammond Public School System for his second year. During this time his major concern has been school improvement. As members of the Hammond Board of Education, Mrs. member; Dr. Eggers, president; and Mr. Berolos, treasurer; Allen, board member; Mrs. Stern, secretary; Mr. Scott, board have helped regulate the public school system. 109 Superior Counseling Benefits All Students Mr. Arnold Corder, B.S. and M.S., is the Director of Guidance and also Clark’s Assistant Principal.

Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Benko, Mrs. Barr, Mrs. Krull, and Mrs. Kristoff comprise the cafeteria staff. Whether it be a broken door, a jammed locker, a littered hallway, or a burned-out light fixture, our four capable janitors, Ed Rathburn, Alvin Peterson, Chester Centkowski, and Fritz Krause always deserve credit for a job well done. Time Has Skipped by So Fast-It’s “Too Soon a Memory,” the theme of this year’s senior class dance, recalled sentimental memories of our past four years at George Rogers Clark. We launched our freshman year activities by elec¬ ting class officers. Our class dance, “Peppermint Paradise,” taught us the importance of hard work and co-operation. Sophomore activities began with the construction of our homecoming float, “Beat Those Striped Cats,” which captured the fourth place ribbon. A moment of pride was selecting our class rings. During our first year as upperclassmen, we saw our activities increase. We entered a decorated car in the homecoming parade and came away with second place honors. Our junior class dance, “Mid- Term Mash,” provided a change of pace during exam week. To raise money for the prom, we pooled our talents and successfully produced “Meet Me In St. Louis,” our junior class play. With the aid of our class sponsors, Mr. Preusz and Mr. Meadows, we planned our prom. With the Parisian theme of “Soiree Magnifique,” the prom was held at the Sher¬ wood Country Club on May 29. The formality of the prom was forgotten the next day as everyone packed a lunch and headed for the Dunes for a day of fun and a sunburn. We returned in the fall of 1964 as seniors. Home¬ coming and sectionals had special meaning this year for they were to be our very last. As the year pro¬ gressed, we crammed for finals and anticipated class ranking. Spring brought with it the final months of our senior year, while the prom and the senior banquet were soon memories. On June 9, the Class of 1965 completed one journey to begin another. Plastic strips stuffed with balloons and covered with stars were “Too Soon A Memory” after the Senior Class Dance. Being a senior class officer is a time consuming, yet rewarding job. Jeff Weiss, president; Dan Minalo, vice-president; Jeri Carpenter, secretary; and Dave Sallay, treasurer directed im¬ portant class decisions during our final year. Leading their slow number at the annual Senior Class dance are Kathy Kozak and Bob Mastej, Senior Queen and King. “Too Soon a Memory” for Our Class Class sponsors must be patient, consoling, and advising when problems arise. For these past four years, Mr. Robert Meadows and Mr. Gerald Preusz have availed their precious time in sponsoring all the endeavors of Clark’s Class of 1965. Coach Stavros (Mary Benko) emphasizes the importance of “beating Gavit” during the Senior Sectional skit. As their final Homecoming game approached, the Seniors displayed their never-ending school spirit with the organiza¬ tion of a homecoming skit. Every Senior, whether partaking in the sketch, or not, displayed the enthusiasm of the entire class. 117 The “Peppermint Paradise” Gave Us Jack Adley—Booster Club 1, 2, 3, 4; Hi-Y 4; German Club 1, 2; Cross Country 2; Tennis 1, 3, 4; Wrestling 2; C-Club 4.

DENNIS DSIDA 1946—1963 DANIEL COOTEE 1946—1963 Class of ’66 Elects Kraly to Presidency; JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS-Mr. Hriso, Sponsor; S. Kraly, President; D. Dickey, Treasurer; S. Psikula, Secretary; G. Jarabak, Vice-President; Mr. Watkins, Sponsor. The class of 1966 saw their third Homecoming season this year. After the election of officers, work began on the Junior class float which won the second place ribbon in the competition. Our Hearts Were Young and Gay was heralded as a tremendous success. The Junior s knew that all the weeks of rehearsals and other tedious work were well worth their time when a thunderous round of applause was heard after each performance. Throughout past years, the Junior class has al¬ ways put forth extra effort in all of their activities. Their spirit was truly evident in the highlight of the year. The prom was held at the Sherwood Coun¬ try Club in Schererville, Indiana on May 29, 1965, and proved to be a huge success.

Stecy, Secretary; Miss Johnston, Sponsor; J. Roy, Treasurer; M. Leland, Vice- President; Mr. Erickson. Sponsor; R. Weiner, President. The Sophomore Class completed its second fun- filled scholastic year. Braving the evil omen of Friday the thirteenth, the class sponsored its annual dance. This year the class selected another very clever theme “Superstition Swing”. With a tremendous effort and long hours of hard work on a Homecoming float, the talented Sophs captured the inevitable, the first-place ribbon. Their float, displaying a sword in a helmet, was titled “Slash the Trojans”. Jane Ehlers regally represented her class as attendant in the court. Christmas offer¬ ed a wonderful surprise this year, namely the arrival of new class rings. The rings are Clark’s first standardized, round rings. The style will be worn by future Clarkites.

FRESHMEN CLASS OFFICERS: Mrs. Turner, sponsor; George Yearsich, president; Duane Duracz, treasurer: Bob Ruf, vice-president; Ellen Geffert, secretary; Mr. Mybeck. The thrill of entering high school brings new -tnd exciting experiences and for the Class of ’68 there was no exception. For the first time becoming an active part of the magical gayiety of homecoming, the Freshmen displayed their imagination and talents and produced a colorful entry in the float competition. The customary selection of class spon¬ sors soon followed and Mr. Mybeck and Mrs. Turner were chosen as sponsors. With the traditional class dance, the frosh added funds to their treasury and gained experience for future activities. The excite¬ ment of their first election reigned and able leaders were chosen to handle class affairs. The class of ’68 can look back on their first year with satisfaction and can look forward to three remaining eventful ones.

Smith, Mr. Jack Bundy Yearbook consultant . Mr. Larry Wells Journalism sponsor . Mr. George Muir Yes, it’s a great feeling to finally be through — we did have our doubts at times. But putting to¬ gether the 1965 POWDER HORN, the story of this school year at Clark, has been a rewarding, educa¬ tional experience. Those of us who have spent many hours cropping pictures, making lay-outs, and writ¬ ing stories have learned a lot about Clark, about “yearbooking,” and about one another. Thanks are due to so many people who have help¬ ed put the book together—to the faculty and Mr. Lockey who have given us “journalistic freedom,” to Mr. Muir who has given us patient advice and loads of time, and to our parents who have spent most of the year without seeing much of us. To the staff whose work may not have seemed appreciated, I as editor give my most sincere thanks, for all their work and cooperation. Telling the complete story of this Clark school year could have easily been a full time job, but we have tried to do it spending two or three hours a day. We truly hope the product of our efforts adds a pattern to your education. Holly Humphreys F.ditor-in-chief 176 3 1161 00821 0596
