I am a unique me, living to the rhythm I myself create, laughing at the thought of being, smiling at bittersweet memories of loves treasured, striving to overcome and then surpass the goals I set as standard. Yet often I find myself confused. My identity is synonomous with no other. I mimic no one, yet imitate all. Shattering my mind into awareness, in the morn the clock opens my eyes to reality: Reflected in a mirror is my peoples image. But in my mind ' s eye I find: A drop-out turned drop-in, A future of boot camp, reveille, and war. Friendships lost and replaced as my circle of life becomes a sphere. Sunrises, sunsets. All forged together to form me. whirling through, a blur of faces. I find myself incorporated: I am unable to recognize one. Not distinguishable but jointed together, I recognize the electricity created by many tuned to one goal. I am enveloped by the pulsating cheer of a crowd united: " G.R.C. ' s the power. " Our thoughts are not centered on our¬ selves, nor others, but on an achievement. We are one. emerging pieced: a collage One divides into the infinite series of fractions. I am a fraction unique from the others. We are pieced together to form the com¬ munity, within the community the school, within the school the spirit. Who am I? I am an individual, whirling through a blur of faces, emerging pieced: a collage Frontier theme Pioneer Spirit amplifies The spirit of Clark ' s student body dur¬ ing the 1969 Homecoming Week proved the Pioneers ' tremendous desire to win. Clarkites responded whole-heartedly to the various themes represented on each of the five days of the " big week. " For example, the students bedecked them¬ selves with loud and bizarre neckties, but¬ tons, and frontier-type clothing. Also, the Senior Skit stimulated the emotions of the football team, the students, and the teachers by being both humorous and serious. Although it rained on Homecoming Night, the spirits of Clark ' s boosters were not dampened, and both the Band, Twirlers, and Pom Pan Corps performed admirably in encouraging the football team. Regardless of the Pioneer spirit, Clark lost by a narrow margin to Hammond. Dances, fashions are vibrant In constant demand for the ever-popular soul music, the World Column plays at numerous Clark dances. Becoming the shelves of a fashion showcase, Clark ' s halls held the modern dress of today ' s youth. Wire-framed glasses, brogues, higher-heeled specta¬ tors, and scarves added an extra touch. Longer hair and side-burns of the longest legal length (down to the earlobe) were exceedingly popular among the males. Representing school dress, flared slacks for the boys and culottes, which the girls found more favorable over the conven¬ tional skirt, a trend toward comfort developed. Plaid and striped slacks, as well as exotic Indian garb—beads, moc¬ casins, and armbands—turned school dress vivid. Fast girations and on and off blinking many-colored lights created the mood. The band, Pom Pons, and the Twirler Corps presented " A Space Odyssey. " Music was provided by the Telstars, complete with an organ and brass. Decorations of sil¬ very, twinkling stars and space food of pretzels and punch represented the gaiety and imagination of Clark ' s dances. Sounds were loud and blaring, dancers were in constant motion, and lights were touching the inner mind. Dances were more than just school activities, they were happenings. One act plays helped extend the drama experiences of Cheryl Peterson, Gary Novotny, and Sally DePevgh. Preparing for the upcoming spirited year, Terri Wagner, Karin Tolley, and Nancy Zrenchik, Varsity Cheer¬ leaders, cheer after a week at Smith Walbridge Camp. Summer institutes supplement knowledge with fun Learning new skills, experimenting in new and old sciences, and traversing over the European and Mexican countryside developed select Clark students ' summer days. Pom pons, twirlers, and cheerleaders learned new styles, twists, and jumps at specialized camps. Dramatics drew four Clarkites to two universities. The fine arts of music and art interested two seniors while visiting and studying in the coun¬ tries of Europe and in old Mexico turned four students into world travelers. Two se¬ niors, Susie Forbes and Barb Furto, were 17 chosen as participants in the Indiana Uni¬ versity Honors Program which allowed them to travel to Germany and Mexico respectively. Girls ' and Boys ' Staters became diplomats and studied govern¬ mental procedures by electing mayors, giving campaign speeches, and making laws. History merges with today’s youth Boarding the Erie-Lackawana trains, Clarkites journeyed to the historical east¬ ern coast. Upset stomachs and meeting new personalities introduced Clark juniors and seniors to new experiences. Tired and exhausted from the long journey, Clark travelers arrived in Wash¬ ington D.C., and prepared to tour the city at night. Days following were filled with tours, visiting historical landmarks, and individual entertainments. Weary from all-night poker-playing sessions, tourists prepared for the trip to New York City. Highlighting the days in New York were tours of the United Nations and the Statue of Liberty. Homesick Clarkites rode buses to Hoboken, N.J. where they board¬ ed the train for a long journey home. Spending a summer sightseeing and studying, Martha Durland, Barb Furto, Janice Vrlik, and Susie Forbes add to their learning experiences. 18th Century playboy Tom Jones humors 20th Century audience Partridge George Halik Bridget Allworthy Denise Flaris Squire Allworthy Dean Flaris Deborah Sally DePeugh Jenny Jones (Mrs. Waters) Laura Walker Captain Blifil Jeff Pavlovich Blifil Phil Voter Tom Jones Ken Greenberg Thwackum Joe Rogina Square Jeff Bauer Mr. Western Tom O ' Drobinak Sophia Western Mari lee Ogren Miss Western Chris Olio Honour Alice Kirby Justice Dowling Tim Jez Doctor Greg Tangalos Highwayman Mike Johnson Harriet Fitzpatrick Carol Moynihan Fitzpatrick Jeff Pavlovich Mrs. Whitefield Sue Saliga Susan Sue Slowiak Lady Bellaston Kathie Bullion Nancy Kris Sandrick Constable Joe Rogina Servants Sharon Modjeski Pauline Scepkowski Shari Wolf Director Mr. Richard Carpio The house lights are lowered and Par¬ tridge, a country man, walks to center stage to tell the tale of " Tom Jones " , a play based on the novel by Henry Field¬ ing. Tom Jones, a victim of fate, is a foundling. Raised in Somersetshire, Eng¬ land, he grew to be a handsome man and found himself falling in love with the girl next door, Sophia Western. But, alas, Tom is a foundling and not worthy of Sophia. Sophia is flattered by Tom ' s love ; he is indeed a handsome man. When the play opens Sophia is indebted to Tom when he rescued her from a runaway horse. In a meeting at Sophia ' s home, Tom and Sophia declare their love for each other and wish to marry. Sophia ' s father and aunt have other plans for her—to marry the detestable Blifill Sophia, in anger, leaves home with her fai thful maid Honour. Upon learning that his love has fled, Tom searches for Sophia, finding many adventures upon the road and finally ending his journey in jail. Sophia rescues Tom from the English jailhouse. The grateful Tom and the lovely Sophia are then united happily forever after. The curtain falls. The lights raise. The play is over. After rescuing Sophia from a runaway horse, Tom pleads for her hand, a task which is most rewarding. In the courtroom, Tom begs Sophia ' s forgiveness for his unfaithfulness and pledges his love to her. As Squire Allworthy lays dying, the few who have come to comfort him gather around to hear his wishes. Boldly facing the highwayman, Tom protects a fellow traveler who, unknown to him, is his mother. Eminent Justice Dowling ponders the fate of Jones as Partridge explains Tom ' s unlucky life. Calvin Coolidge comes to Clark Belittled by poet-writer Paul Barringer, Alice Blake ' s lave letter turns into an impersonal composition. " Up the Down Staircase, " under the di¬ rection of Mr. Richard Carpio, brought to the stage talents of the Junior Class. Miss Sylvia Barrett is introduced in Act One as a beginning teacher at Calvin Coolidge High School in New York City. Sylvia finds teaching very difficult, especially when a member of the faculty, J. J. McHabe, appears. Mr. Paul Bar¬ ringer, a handsome teacher sought after by all the female students, focuses his at¬ tention for fleeting moments on Miss Bar¬ rett, and romance blooms. With the opening of Act Two, Sylvia gets into trouble for defending the ill-dis¬ ciplined Joe Ferone. In spite of Sylvia ' s pleas to remain in school, Joe is intent on dropping out—Sylvia announces her res¬ ignation. As the play ends, both Joe and Miss Barrett remain at Calvin Coolidge High. Despite students giggling and passing jokes. Miss Bar¬ rett teaches her class " First Impressions. " -r Trials and tribulations of an administration weigh heavily on disciplinarian J. J. McHabe. o Not worrying about the day ' s classes, delinquent Joe Ferone takes a nap during eighth period English.

White trellises and flower gardens greeted guests as they arrived at the Sherwood Country Club to enter " This Magic Moment, " the 1969 Clark Prom. After-prom party-goers had dinner at Tiebels Restaurant and listened to the modern beat of The Mauds and The World Column. Laughing in the hallways, crying at homecoming, cheering teams to victory- all are memories to be treasured as the wheels of time turn and another class graduates from George Rogers Clark High School. For the final time the Class of ' 69 was united. It was the last time for some to see friends with whom they went to games, dances, and parties. After twelve years of work, young men and women received their diplomas. The questioning minds were ready to become individuals in a boundless society, ready to face its problems. With the climax of four years at her fingertips, graduate Jackie Ellis proudly receives her diploma.

On trial this year, an open reading lab presented Clark students with the oppor¬ tunity to increase their reading skills. Students were permitted to take advan¬ tage of reading lab facilities during iunch hours and study halls when no regular classes were scheduled. Juniors concentrated on the American scene in English. Transcendentalism and Henry David Thoreau, witchcraft and Ar¬ thur Miller, and satire, local color, witty humor and Mark Twain, were the distinc¬ tive and initial ingrediants in the collage studied. 1984 in 1970? Reading George Or¬ well ' s 1984 and William Shakespeare ' s Macbeth, students envisioned the past as well as the future. Sixth hour Senior En¬ glish students discussed patriotism and wrote a sequence used in The Fall Choral Concert. A Saturday lost in the jungle of books for a term paper due in a week was a common situation to English students throughout the year, as themes and term papers were required for all classes. Paperbacks stashed in back pockets were common. MRS. CAROL HUBER . . . B.S., M.A., Indiana Univer¬ sity . . . Basic and Developmental Reading . . . Read¬ ing Club Sponsor... ninth year at Clark.

The English Depart¬ ment, recognizing the importance of this asset, gave the student instruction in his basic tool—speech. Incoming freshmen found emphasis on grammar and literature in their classes. Reading the novels Green Mansions and Les Miserables, the lives of accomplished writers and abstract ideas were brought into focus. Glaring eyes, isolated snickers, and a yawning teacher were among the numerous terrors encountered by junior Platos and Websters in sophomore English classes. Stage fright and butterflies, con¬ tracted by the beginning students, were combated with experience and involve¬ ment. fc ' ® 1 NT If MRS. LILLIAN WILCOX . ..

East meets west in languages Designing a Roman theater, groping in the dark through the many tenses of Ger¬ man, making a five to seven page critique of a French-born author, and demon¬ strating the makings of a tortilla (and eat¬ ing it!) challenged foreign language students. A chance to explore Europe for five weeks during Summer ' 69 was given to third year Latin students Martha Durland and Janice Vrlik. German student Susie Forbes and Spanish student Barb Furto spend eight weeks living with families in Germany and Mexico where they spoke only German and Spanish. Being foreign¬ ers in strange countries gave the students a new and worthwhile experience to treasure. In a switch from routine, Jackie Colbert reads a seem¬ ingly interesting German magazine. Student power receives impetus by mastering equations Leaving behind the placid atmosphere of summer vacation, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry students were rushed into the worlds of Descartes, Newton, Euclid, and Pythagoreas. Theorems, laws, and seemingly endless equations were matched by moans, but when such mathe¬ matical necessaries were finally under¬ stood, the student no doubt took great pride in his absorption power. Through the use of projectors, dia¬ grammatic models, and dimensional con¬ structions, teachers strived to bridge the gap between misunderstanding and thorough enlightenment. MR. CHARLES STUBER . . .

The moon, which is within the sphere of man ' s touch and influence, has produced circumstances associated with solar system beginnings. Encompassing these circumstances, Earth Science stu¬ dents followed space flights from blast-off to splash-down. Chemistry and Physics classes ad¬ vanced to more specialized instruction. Experiments performed in the chemistry lab began with simple chemical changes found in everyday life and progressed to processes employed in the factories of the community. With the advanced math courses taken previously, Physics students combined science and math in their studies. Why situations occur in nature and how these could be solved—objective of the Physics course—gave students aim at answering occurances of the nonliving world concerned with matter and energy of life. 39 MR.

Social Studies confronts ' establishment’ People: why they lived and where they fought their battles and how they struggled for existence. Knowledge gained from man ' s past experience led students to a greater understanding of the present time in World History. Changing union and labor laws, stock market crashes, World Wars I and II cat¬ apulted U.S. History students through time to the century they are living in, the century that has most closely affected and challenged their own lives. The United States military-industrial complex, the Vietnamization of the war, and the social security system related to Government and Economic students. An imaginary investment, dwindling under the burden of inflation or growing through wise investments, drew American business and government to the students. MR. BERNARD CHARIET . ..

Historians explore globe United States History instructed individ¬ ual pupils through participation and lec¬ tures. Student teaching for Mr. Roman was Mr. Robert Springer, who instructed pupils of U.S. foreign policy, as it differs from past policies. Relating to the problems of other coun¬ tries, World History classes traveled the globe. Customs, languages, and political histories of the cultures studied brought the far reaches of the world to students in their classrooms. International affairs, past and present, were discussed. In deep concentration, U.S. History students re today ' s problems through yesterday ' s mistakes. 43 Commercialists fuse concepts 44 The finish of one decade and the start of another strongly suggests to both student and teacher that a base be recog¬ nized for maximum use of yesterday ' s ex¬ periences to solve tomorrow ' s problems. Clark ' s business department promoted concepts of the world of commerce through offering to help the student un¬ derstand basic economic principles of a free enterprise system. Courses in general business and consumer problems were two in a variety of ten different course areas of business classes from Advanced Shorthand to Typing 3. They offered op¬ portunity to see much of the world of commerce—its demands, expectations, general problems and structure for achieving better communication. MR. ELDON BUSS . . .

Straining his muscles to achieve the best Janas concentrates on the music before him. Music: medium is the message Individual lessons and group practices helped students in the three divisions of the music department attain perfection for concerts and extra-curricular contests. Mr. Matusiak joined the Clark faculty this year and directed the Orchestra, stressing technique, tonation, and rhythm on stringed instruments. He also assisted Mr. Church by instructing Mixed Chorus. The Choral Department again had the largest enrollment of a ny elective course offered at Clark. Major choral works by Handel, along with many of Mr. Church ' s own compositions, were performed in con¬ cert and in outside engagements for or¬ ganizations. Intricate routines entertained crowds as the band performed at home football games. The aim of the band was to devel¬ op performance ability in concerts as well as marching and to develop desire for ex¬ cellence. The talent of the three music divisions were joined together in December when a Christmas album was recorded and sold. Handymen and home- style chefs alter the typical MR. RAY WILLIAMS . . .

Being accurate in his measurements, John Graun squares a pine board for his latest project. Projects of the Industrial Arts classes had one thing in common: practicality. After acquiring the correct basic concepts and methods, both the Shop and Mechanical Drawing classes advanced to the Construction of plans and household odds- ' n-ends. Shop students combined safety, skill, and wood to produce such useful items as bowls, bookends, and benches. Extensive furniture repair work helped train future handymen, even though these students received several cuts and pounded thumbs. Beginning by sketching bricks, mechan¬ ical drawing students learned how proportion and accuracy relate to the construction of blueprints and their very homes. Cooking breakfast in the afternoon and the satisfaction of eating something you have recently made transformed cooking students into French chefs. Artists brighten the upper halls as they share their finished products with the rest of the school. Casual air prevails in Doing their own thing, art students become new people and create fantastic designs and pictures. Working with every¬ thing from tooth picks, to pencil, to finger paints, to chalk, these students become the Picassos of Clark. Art teacher, Miss Norabel Morrison, en¬ courages her pupils ingenuity as they transform straight lines or broken glass and junk into psychedelic figures. Christ¬ mas ornaments and seasonal decorations brightened the halls as students displayed works of art. The workshop atmosphere of comfort and relaxation in the classroom aided students concentration and work. Dripping bottles of tempera paint, colored chalk, and crayons reflect the workings of an imagination. MISS KAZIA MACEY . . . B.S., Ball State University ...

In competition with Mr. Har- bison ' s class the Special Education students demonstrated achievements in addition, subtraction, division, and mul¬ tiplication. Developing the body as well as a win¬ ning spirit was the goal of the Physical Education Department.

Changing yearbook reflects Powder Horn Editor, Jan Jackim, con¬ centrated on change for the 1970 year¬ book. A duotone of orange and photo- 58 silhouettes were used in the first signature and on divider pages. An axis-cluster, three-column layout was set with more pictures and less copy. The senior and un¬ derclass sections also featured select can¬ did pictures of those classes. " Who Am I? I am an individual, moving through a blur of faces, emerging pieced: a col¬ lage. " , the theme, was developed in eight pages and was carried out through the book in the features employed. Senior ac¬ tivities were placed in a separate section.

Disappointment shadows activities Initiating the year ' s activities before September, Student Council worked in co¬ operation with Coach Peterson to sponsor the Blue-White football game. As the reg¬ ular season opened, Council planned a car caravan of boosters to Munster for the night ' s clash. Plans fell short due to the refusal of a police escort. Homeroom representatives were cho¬ sen, and the activity period meetings were held. The old council constitution was reviewed and revised. The PTSA, Parent, Teacher, Student Association, was initiated. During homecoming Council boosted spirit week. In December the council bought Christmas trees for the halls. January brought a roller skating party at the Hammond Roller Dome. Though turnout was poor, those attending enjoyed themselves. A new dress code was reviewed but remained the same.

Countless hours were dedicated to building the front lawn Homecoming display " Let ' Urn Know What Hit ' Urn, " complete with a pioneer-style covered wagon. Spirited fans journeyed to Lafayette to witness a clash between the Purdue Boilermakers and the Stanford Indians, and to Chicago to attend a Bulls basket¬ ball game.

Seasonal Greetings were extended with the aid of Band, Orchestra, and choruses at the Christmas Concert. At this time, the Serenaders also performed out¬ side engagements including programs for the KiwanisClub and on WJOB radio sta¬ tion. The Spring Concert offered still another opportunity for the choral groups to display their talents. During all concerts both traditional and popular songs, as well as original compositions by Mr. Church, were enjoyed by the audiences. " Lord, Love an Ugly Duck " , an original musical adapted by Richard Jaegar, was presented by the Concert Choir. A new look was introduced in the production of the play: both the crews and the speaking parts were double cast to give students varied experiences in show production. Serenaders—J. Jackim, R.

Entrance to Girls ' Choir and Boys ' En¬ semble was attained through tryouts; singers from lower groups aspired to Con¬ cert Choir through auditions. After publicly complaining of faulty microphones and threatening to cancel all concerts until the problem was remedied, Mr. Church received a new sound system. Deep in thought, Gail Wall ponders her next in¬ terlude of music. Orchestra flaunts modern music The Orchestra was a truly special orga¬ nization this year. Under the direction of Mr. David Matusiak, traditions were set aside. Modern music as well as new tech¬ niques made the Orchestra a favorite group around Clark School. The greatest change took place when traditional serious music was abandoned and the Orchestra played selections from " Hair, " Born Free, Magnificent Seven, and Goin ' Out of My Head. Two concerts. Winter and Spring, featured lively music played by an inspired group. Many spare hours were spent initiating plans for Clark School ' s first tour. Accom- panying the Orchestra were the Serenaders and Pom-Pons performing to music supplied by the Orchestra. " Sounds of the 60 ' s " was planned for early May along with the Spring Concert late in May. 71 Orchestra—FRONT ROW: K. Kortokrax, K. Gaitens, M. Durland, Mr. Matusiak, G. Wall, G. Wojtena, N.

Mark, along with various other Band members, fashioned routines to be per¬ formed by the Marching Band. The 1969-1970 Band was a great morale booster for this year ' s Pioneers. The cadence, " Tuff, " and " Celebrate " roused Clark sports fans to frenzied ex¬ citement as close games became victories or bitter disappointments. Pep band played at all home basketball games and added music for performances by the Pom-pon girls. Lost music, broken reeds, and last min¬ ute instructions were all common to the 80 members of the Band prior to every per¬ formance.

In recognition of his ex¬ cellence, member Mike Higgins ' human interest photographs were displayed in the library. Promoting aspects of stage production were Stage Crew and Dramatics, both sponsored by Mr. Carpio. The clubs con¬ centrated on behind-the-scenes activity, accumulating experience in lighting, set construction, and production. As a national organization, Thespian Troupe No. 1769 was composed of those accredited with working on stage crews and having had speaking parts.

A delay in practices resulting from the teachers ' strike of late August left the Pio¬ neers somewhat unprepared to meet their out-of-city and thus unhampered oppo¬ nent, Munster. Disappointment shadowed the Clark locker room following the next two encounters, but spirits rose as the Pio¬ neers were victorious over East Chicago Washington and Hammond Gavit. A Homecoming loss to Hammond High did not lower morale as the next game found the Pioneers rallying to beat Tech in the final minutes of play. After being defeat¬ ed by the Roosevelt Rough Riders, Clark Whalloped cross-town rival Whiting by a score of 21-7. Distinguishing himself as a team workhorse, Joe Steliga showed himself both athletically and scholastically. His leadership was exemplified by his posi¬ tion as National Honor Society president and his Boys ' State appointment. On the field his versatility and determination placed him in the position of team cap¬ tain. He was voted Most Valuable Player, adding to the respect of the coaches that of his teammates. To the recognition received at home was added state-wide acknowledgement with his selection as guard for the United Press International All-State first string team.

In the last four games, three were wins over Hammond, Gavit, and Tech. The Homesteaders, recorded their first high school football season of 3-5-1. Tying Munster and then losing to Morton, the freshmen came back to beat E.C. Washington and Noll. Losing four straight, including a game lost to E.C. Roosevelt by a disputed call, the team beat rival Whiting 37-6. Junior Varsity Football Scorebox Opponent Clark 6 Munster 2 26 Morton 0 6 Noll 8 0 Gavit 33 14 E. C.

The doubles team of Chuck Steffel and Rich Skurka was successful in reaching the quarter finals of the sectional tournament, which was better than any previous effort in the school ' s history. The first and sec¬ ond singlesmen combined their skills to defeat Morton, E.C. Roosevelt, and Gavit. Defeated by a duo from Munster, the win¬ ning streak was halted.

For the first time in 27 years, Clark ' s Pi¬ oneers won the Hammond Sectional. After a quick start with wins over Lake Central and S.B. Washington, the Pioneers dropped three in a row to Horace Mann, Valparaiso, and Highland. A win over Hobart evened the tally for the ' 69 half of the season. In the Holiday Tourney, the Pi¬ oneers beat Noll but were upset by Gavit. A win over Chicago Washington started off the ' 70 season. A loss to S.B. Adams, ranked eleventh in the state by UPI, was tilted by a two-game winning streak over Hammond High and Munster. A narrow loss to Tech broke the streak, but the Pio¬ neers bounced back against Gavit and Whiting. Three losses preceeded wins over T.F. North and Griffith. In the Hammond Sectional, Clark drew Whiting for the first game and trounced them 73-41. The Gavit-Clark clash a few days later saw the Pioneers win 90-60. A game the same night was won by a score of 78-65 over Munster and the cham¬ pionship was captured. In the regional, the Pioneers knocked off Lake Central, but fell at the hands of E.C.

The Settlers split their first six games, defeat¬ ing Lake Central, Horace Mann, and Val¬ paraiso. The best part of the year came when the Settlers defeated Tech, Morton, and E.C. Roosevelt to capture the Holiday Tourney trophy. Starting off 1970, the Settlers ' victims were Chicago Washing¬ ton, Hammond High, Whiting, Morton, Chesterton, and T.F. North. A deficit of one point in the Clark-Griffith clash ended in the Settlers defeat and the end of their season. Making their first mark in basketball, the Homesteaders recorded a 12-4 slate. The year started with a pair of wins over T.F. North and Whiting. Wins over Tech and Gavit were sandwiched between three losses to the East Chicago schools, Washington and Roosevelt, and Lake Central. The Homesteaders then won eight out of their last nine games, includ¬ ing a tournament championship, defeat¬ ing Tech in the title match. Junior Varsity Basketball Team—D. Mecklin, F.

The C-Club Sweetheart was crowned at their annual dance. Proceeds from the dance helped pay for the annual sports banquet in May during which trophies for Most Valuable Player and sportsmanship were awarded. As a means of orientation for new members, Girls ' Athletic Club sponsored its annual get acquainted picnic in the fall. Sophomore, junior, and senior girls who majored in two sports and were ini¬ tiated members of the club, earned points towards their numerals, monograms, and letters by participation in bowling, swim¬ ming, and various other sports.

Leadership emerges as Navta, Hoover chosen Girls’ Staters Homecoming was a major factor in drawing the Junior Class together. Their float, " Blast Dem Cats, " received much support from class members and merited a second-place ribbon. In anticipation of the 1970 Prom, the class of 1971 started the year by formulating plans to raise funds. At the suggestion of class sponsors Mr. Watkins and Mr. Hriso, the class dance was held without theme and decorations to save money. To insure a working balance, class dues of $1.50 were collected from members. The Junior-Senior Prom was held on May 22, at the Dorchester Inn. Couples danced and were serenaded by the music of the Hal Morris Orchestra until mid¬ night. The Nickel Bag, a rock group from the University of Illinois, highlighted the After-Prom Party.

Paula Zehner, Carl Zuboy, Eddie Novice superintendent slammed by teachers’ strike The proposed merger of Clark High and Hammond High schools remained just that—a proposal—while the union of the two schools remained questionable. Succeeding Dr. Oliver Rapp as Super¬ intendent of the Hammond Public Schools was Dr. Robert L. Medcalf. Taking the Hammond position, Dr. Medcalf had previously held the post of Superin¬ tendent of Greater Clark County Schools of Jeffersonville, Indiana. Threatening to postpone the start of school in September was a teachers ' strike that began in June, 1969 with a walkout. A settlement three weeks later revised the salary schedule to the teachers ' advan¬ tage. Injecting enthusiasm into the entire school, Mr. Durwood D. Lockey serves as both principal and Pioneer. Counselors project dreams Dean of Students Mr. Hriso concentrat¬ ed on the discipline of students and the dress code. Girls were permitted to wear slacks when the temperature dipped below fifteen degrees,- boys grew their hair longer with parental discretion the modifying element. Under the guidance of Mr. Stavros, se¬ niors completed their course of study. Useless study halls were eliminated through late homeroom and early dismiss¬ al programs. Mr. Welch directed the junior class, while he and Miss Myers teamed to super¬ vise the sophomores and freshmen. Dean of Curriculum Mr. Joseph Esterhay prepares a schedule for the upcoming school year ' s courses. Taking over the position of Senior Counselor this year, Mr. Steve Stavros makes a schedule correction. Personnel supplement background services The extensive facilities of the library provided students and teachers with countless references for research papers, themes, book reports, and out of class as¬ signments. Because of study hall assign¬ ments, oftentimes the library was closed. While the cafeteria remained one of relaxation, its staff continued to prepare tasty and nutritious meals on the govern¬ ment surplus program. From and upset stomach caused by an upcoming test, to a sliver in a finger, the nurse ' s days were as diverse as a student ' s imagination. After the final bell sounded it remained for the janitors and janitresses to return the school to proper order. Announcements to be typed, money to be deposited, and questions to be an¬ swered were only a few of the chores secretaries performed daily in the main office.

Picture schedules often disrupted classes, with frenzied teachers wondering when it all would end. But they patiently bore with me, and I ' d like to thank the faculty and administrators. Yet, I feel this book is their book too, and to produce it. Root Photographers captured the school ' s movement through their pictures, thus enabling me to paint our picture. I thank them. Always present, Mr. Muir sponsored and advised me through long hours of work and worry. Thanks to the people who worked and to those who just wanted their picture experiences both good and bad must be taken. tolerated. 1970 Powder Horn Staff Subscription Editors Andrea Kaminsky Linda Matusik Editor Jan Jackim Sports Editors Mark Janas Literary Editors Barb Furto Jack Gabor Laura Walker Identification Editors Sally DePeugh Advertising Editors Nancy Samek Jeff Pavlovich Nancy Zrenchik Index Editors Peggy Golding Senior Editors Kris Sand rick Theda Retegan Martha Durland Patty Matura Michele Vincent Underclass Editor Dean Flaris Exchange Editor Joyce Navta Faculty Editors Jeanne Milligan Janice Vrlik Typist Karen Lilly Photographers Mr. Arthur Erickson Dennis Stack Chuck Steffel Mike Higgins Interstate Studio Root Ph otographers Cover Design Eric Antilla Linda Lacinski Printer Paragon Yearbooks Mr. Al Schlegelmilch, Consultant Cover S.K.
