In 1925 the Board of Education said, " Let there be a high school here to further the knowledge, the education, and the wisdom of the Robertsdale people. And so it was. A foundation was laid. The Creation began; seven years elapsed, and progress prevailed. Walls were erected, classrooms were formed, hallways took shape, and lockers were installed. In February of 1932, George Rogers Clark High School reached completion, an indelible landmark that would survive in a changing world. The doors were opened; knowledge was absorbed; an addition was built, and changes occurred. For forty-three years, student numbers have multiplied as generations of Clarkites have passed through the halls of G.R.C., receiving a unique high school experience at 1921 Davis Avenue. Overcrowding was a problem during the initial steps of construction. celift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ...

A brand new swimming pool and a remodeled auditorium, along with modern, aluminum, cool water drinking fountains, lowered ceilings, larger lockers, and revamped classrooms and hallways are all samplings of what is in store for Clarkites. When completed, Clark will be ready, refreshed refurbished, renewed, and revitalized for future generations of the Pioneer Family! ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift .

Students sat through classes as dust, hammering, and verbal " no-nos " filtered through vents. When the bottom floor was boarded, students were forced to move into new lockers, often needing to wait in line to gather books and personal belongings. The halls and lunchrooms became overcrowded, and it sometimes seemed strange to have to enter the building on 119th Street, with no choice but to proceed up the staircase to the main floor. The facelift established patterns and barriers for students, but these students did not become disillusioned as they weeded through roadblocks in excited anticipation. Laugh Lines ... Laugh Lines ...

Lydia Quattrin at I.U., Cindy Dziezak and Nancy Dobos at Western Kentucky University added their special effects to respective newspaper workshops. One week was spent by Dana Serafin and Bill Lantz at I.U. learning principles of Student Leadership. Bill also attended a photography workshop at I.U. Journalism Workshoppers Jean Zajac and Karen Shebesh attended Ball State for two weeks to learn aspects of reporting and layout design. 10 Interest in Trigonometry and Computers brought Suellen Szarmach and Terry Franklin to a one week I.U.

Whether selected for their scholastic ability as Marylynn Samek, Linda Navta, and Boys and Girls staters or if they just wanted to improve themselves or learn new techniques to better our school ' s institutions, workshoppers agreed they still didn ' t have the time they needed to do everything. For some, the day began with a knock on the door by floor counselors or an alarm set for 6:00 a.m. From then on it was a race against the clock; running to classes, applying new techniques in assignments, meeting new people, taking breaks, finishing the afternoon with supper, listening to lectures, attending the last class of the day. Most workshoppers agree this is when the fun began. Confined to their respective halls around 10:00 p.m., workshoppers found ways to amuse themselves until lights out; whether it was by having pillow fights, or more often than that doing homework. A room check concluded the evenings activities for some workshoppers. But others lingered on in dimly lit rooms, under beds, and in closets, cramming to finish that one last all-day assignment, probably all night, too. Returning home, exhausted workshoppers all agreed that there just was not enough time. The Cologne Cathedral was one of the many places Marylynn Samek visited during an eight week stay in Germany. 11 Waiting to consult with their counselors, students mingled in the outer office of the Guidance Department. After the arrival of the long-awaited yearbook, Lisa Jones searches for the right words to express her feelings. Sparkling water from a hose is equivalent to a tall glass of lemonade after a hot summer day ' s practice. The last week in August, Mr. Guiden was on hand to pass out schedules and work out any problems with students. 6 a s b School-oriented life ended and students embarked on a fun-filled summer: cycling, swimming, playing tennis, standing around on 119th Street, or just laying lazily out in the sun. But some industrious students also attended summer school, or workshops, or obtained a job. July passed, August came, summer slowed, and students gave into the fact that school would soon begin. An article in the newspaper let Clarkites know that they would have to come during the last week in August to check schedules and make necessary changes. Students straggled in on their designated days greeted by familiar faces of friends waiting to see counselors. Smiling faces quickly faded after standing in line anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour. The frustrations of waiting finally took its toll. Schedules were fixed, and a week later school began. The halls echoed the footsteps of 1,000 students. 13 o 0) E o X fCemeeetndg- d Fled Oj Sxiiment The halls of GRC were filled with pulsation, penetrating within each individual. Clark ' s indrawn spirit emerged in an atmosphere of anticipation and excitement as students prepared for Homecoming 74. During Spirit Week, students rose to the occasion and displayed a unique form of school spirit. Many students chuckled at the sight of their peers plastered with buttons and bows, and Pioneer blue and white. The week went on and students were busy with last minute rushes and as floats were designed each class began dreaming of the 1st place ribbon. Finally, October 4th arrived. Each student made an extra effort to walk past the Booster Club lawn display and visit Voris ' Ark and his chosen animals. Throughout the morning, students used their spare seconds rushing to see their floats. The bell rang and Clarkites raced to the old gym for the traditional Homecoming Pep Assembly, the last to be held in Clark ' s " little gym. " Nick ' s Gridders managed to maneuver their way through the swarms of hyper students. In the Senior Class Skit, Senior .guys stimulated the football team by imitating cheerleaders, while Ithe girls showed their masculinity by impersonating the players. After listening to Coach Voris in his Pioneer cap, each class " psyched-up " for the yell Contest. Red faces glistened from the Seniors as they combined forces to capture first place. Anticipation mounted, and Celeste Jurek was announced as 1974-75 Homecoming Queen. When the assembly ended, students proceeded to prepare for the parade. Class and club floats were lined up while students put on the finished touches. " We Noah the Tigers ' ll Miss the Boat, " the Senior Class float, snatched the first place, the blue ribbon. The Homecoming Game began soon after the parade, and after a spectacular halftime show, Mr. Voris was proud of his players as they produced a 21-20 victory over the Tech Tigers. Homecoming 74 and " Noah ' s Ark " wound up on Saturday night, October 5, as students waltzed to the music of " Stonewood Fox, " the final Homecoming Dance to be held in the " little gym. " Seniors reminisced about previous homecomings and Homecoming 74, their last as Clarkites, and underclassmen anticipated those to come. Ending the perfect weekend. Barb Powell rocks to the beat of the music at the homecoming dance. 14 Thoughts of the evening ' s performance.

" Student Life Homecoming 74 15 Becoming the shelves of a fashion showcase, Clark ' s halls held the modern dress of today ' s youth. Wire rimmed glasses, pierced earrings, platforms, and scarves added an extra touch. Boys continued to sport long hair, while girls considered shorter hair styles. Representing school dress were the midi-skirt, dresses, wool and knit pants, cardigan sweaters or fancy blouses and shirts, and the more casual jeans, flannel shirts, vests, T-shirts, overalls, and work shirts. Although a variety of styles were seen around school, students wore what they were more comfortable in. Inaugural Ball kicked off the dancing season. A lack of time and planning forced the dance from the 74 season into the first dance of 75. Fast gyrations and on-and-off blinking and many colored lights created the mood. Classes and or¬ ganizations sponsored dances as a source of entertainment for Clarkites. " Anything goes " governed the way students reacted to the pul¬ sating beat of the music. If someone didn ' t enjoy dancing, they could relax by listening to the music. Dances were more than just activities, they were happenings. Jackets, midis, parkas in plaids with a variety of colors, and fur trimmings were displayed throughout the halls. Lax dress codes enabled students to dress casually and comfortably in over¬ alls, sport pants, and T-shirts. Student Life Fads Dances 17 Melissa Moynihan and Craig Spanburg " strike-up " a hearty laugh. Polkas were just a few of the many tempos set by the Blue Tones. ' Twas the night of the Formal and all through the town, the boys donned their sport coats-the girls, their gowns. The couples were nestled in Vogel ' s Gold Room, from seven to twelve with " Blue Tones " in tune. The youth was " hung¬ up " with a holiday cheer, thinking that Santa soon would be here. The girls were so charming, the boys divine, that Dec. 22nd, a night, so fine. When out on the dance floor there rose such a clatter: a polka, a waltz, it just didn ' t matter! They wiggled and they jiggled and they swayed with such ease, from " Rainy Days " to " Rudolf " -no one was displeased! With punch, with cookies, with enchantment endowed, this night, a highlight, S.C. should be proud! The minutes flew by and the Grand March drew near, marking eve ' s end with a laugh, smile, or tear. The clock struck twelve and all was well. Old flowers and favors can only now tell, of the joy and delight, ending with " Merry Christmas and Good Night! " •SW W lifktHkifrjj Assemblies and intramurals were placed sparingly on the school calendar because of various difficulties encountered by Student Council. Assembly plans were initiated over the summer when committee members began writing letters to folk groups, candidates running for office, magicians, and others in hopes of receiving favorable answers. Responses soon came back but several of these groups asked for unreasonable fees and the Student Council, who at that time was in financial trouble, had to turn them down. A few of the respondents who refused were " M. R. Rush " and " Styx. " Others had to be cancelled because of unforeseen circumstances such as Senator Birch Bayh who was unable to come because of developments stemming from Watergate, and an ESP specialist, Bobby Nuckles, who was unable to come because of a car accident. Further mishaps plagued Student Council. Assemblies had to be cancelled because of inadequate facilities. One of the most important assemblies cancelled was Mr. Buemiller ' s " Let ' s Travel. " He has come to Clark for years with movies of his travels from across the world and was turned away because of problems with the auditorium. These difficulties resulted in only two assemblies; the first with gubernatorial candidate Richard Lugar; the second being folk singers Mickey Camp and Ray Barony. Intramurals also were few because of a lack of planning, interest, and participation. Attempts made to start basketball intramurals failed when student interest dwindled. But three successful intramurals were held: tennis, bowling, and homeroom volleyball. These intramurals united classmates and encouraged sportsmanship among the participating students. In order to influence students ' voting decisions, Dave Pecenka spoke during the S.C. Campaign assembly. A concert of folk music was the final assembly held in the auditorium. 20 Doug Sfleets sfets i during the homen Precision and timing, shown by Jon Toops, are both important factors in bowling technique. Renee Zubay takes everything in stride during intramural tennis semi-finals. Campaigning for votes, Mayor Richard Lugar spoke to Clarkites about his political aims. Gilbert Lozano gets ready to block a spike from Mr. William ' s homeroom. To bring further attention to their cause, some Clarkites protested in front of the Administration Building. The announcement made during a School Board meeting that Football Coach Voris was not recommended for a contract renewal caused great concern among students and parents. The following morning, March 21, some students planned a walkout on Mr. Voris ' behalf. They arrived at 8:00 a.m. with signs and pins saying " Retain Voris " or " Clark needs discipline " and staged a sitdown just outside the principal ' s office, blocking traffic, gathering a crowd of onlookers and bystanders. As the morning classes began, these students proceeded out of school chanting " We want Voris. " After marching around school, they headed for the Administration Building. The day ' s disturbances subsided, school ended, and Clarkites headed home fo r Spring Break with time to ponder these new events. Returning to school, students were greeted with the news that at the coach ' s request a hearing had been granted. These hearings customarily held at the Administration Building were moved to Clark ' s gym so all interested public could attend. The hearings were held three evenings, April 14-16, during which time members of the School Board listened to testimonies of students, concerned Adult Booster Club members, and Administrators. Over 1,500 students and parents showed their concern by attending. At the beginning of each of the evenings, several students and parents gave Mr. Voris a standing ovation. On the final evening of the hearing. Board members conducted a one-hour executive board meeting to deliberate on all testimonies given and to decide whether or not to renew the Coach ' s contract. A one-to-four vote in favor of renewal of his contract resulted. Students, parents, faculty, and the general public left the gym at 3:30 a.m. on April 17, without having any regrets. Cheers and standing ovations during hearings expressed the public ' s support of Mr. Voris. Student Life Controversy 23 One of the many students testifying on Mr. Voris ' behalf was George Grabovac. With the aid of his lawyer, Mr. Voris was able to have his contract renewed. An estimated 3,000 people crowded into the gym on the final night of the hearing. Much time was exerted by expanded curriculum committee members as they hashed out problems, cut all necessary red tape, and planned classes. Hours were spent thinking of interesting classes and obtaining teachers and guest speakers for them. It meant handing out surveys, talking with teachers about their avocations, asking if they would be willing to share them with students, and mak ing several phone calls. Additional time was spent finding materials and rooms necessary for each class. Expanded curriculum, ready for student sign up the Friday before Spring break and due to large absenteeism, was cancelled until the Monday after break. Sign up was then held in an orderly fashion during the students ' English classes. Inadequate numbers of signatures on the part of uninterested students during sign up, caused Expanded Curriculum to be canceled. Food-Fun Fair the annual PTA fund-raising project held around Halloween for many years, was rescheduled to January 21, due to conflicting school activities. Renovation forced the Fair, traditionally held in the basement, to be moved to the first floor and into the new wing of the building. These moves affected the placements of booths and the selling activities at the fair. The Student Council dance previously held in the old gym, was moved to the new gym, initiating a first and a new tradition. The dance featuring Urizon highlighted the evening activities. Handing out prizes for the basketball toss game booth, Marybeth Bereoles helps raise money for the Band. Committee members help interested absenteeisms sign up for classes. The raffling of the pinnata was one of the many exciting moments for fair- goers.

The Food Fair Dance concluded an enjoyable evening for Ann Marie Bugyis. J i s4 " I can ' t wait until Friday and the weekend. " This comment was more commonly uttered during warm Fall and Spring weather when Clarkites had the opportunity to walk downtown or sit in front of school; go horsebackriding, cyclying, or camping; to play tennis, baseball, or basketball; to take in a movie or attend a concert at Civic Center. Winter time also found Clarkites longing for a chance to go skiing, skating, tabagoning or to play hockey, or to just sit at home watching television and forgetting about school problems. For industrious students, weekends and after school meant work at White Castles, McDonald ' s, Bercik ' s Station or at Park View and other local businesses. For Clarkites job hours ranged from one to two hours to a four-hour or eight-hour workday. The part-time and full-time jobs supplied Clarkites with extra spending money and necessary finances for college, giving students insight into future responsibilities as adults.

Complete concentration and dedicatior attributes to the Orchestra ' s perfection. The Orchestra ' s production of Sights and Sounds 75 was a top-notch presentation of the Orchestra ' s outstanding talents. Throughout the year. Orchestra toured many schools and performed for many groups and Sights and Sounds was their final performance,, a collection of the year ' s hard work. Orchestra performed selections from various popular composers such as the Carpenters, Burt Bacharach, and Frank Zappa and turned to a few of their favorites and contest winning numbers such as " Corazon, " " Banana Flower, " and " MacArthur Park. " Senior members of the group, along with other members deserving credit for their dedication and contributions were acknowledged and received awards. Sights and Sounds 75 was a fabulous display of individual and group talent but only a meager audience was fortunate enough to experience this " Musical Experience.

The end, the purpose, the goal of any high-school student was reached on june 4 as members of the Class of 1975 received their diplomas. Baccalaureate and the Senior Tea on June 1 along with Commencement on Wednesday, June 4 left seniors either happy or sad, cheery-eyed or teary- eyed as they realized that “it was all over. " Only the future remained and this thought, along with memories of activities as Pioneers filled the minds of seniors as they marched to " Pomp and Circumstance " donned caps and gowns, heard speeches, and shifted their tassels. Suddenly, wtTh the mere wearing of the " Big Blue " caps and gowns, the Class of 75 shifted from students to graduates, and from graduates to alumni. 3iem Student Life Graduation 33 Although learning includes films and demonstrations, students still have to hit the books. Deftness, and precision, Larry Zembala finds, are two important factors for metal shop. 4 ducation is the purpose of the learning institution, a requirement to some and an opportunity for those who hunger for knowledge by searching for answers to the questions " Who? What? When? Where? Why? and How? " Many tools may be employed in the learni ng process such as textbooks, audio-visual materials, and remedial programs, making the road to discovery a little easier to tread. But mental cultivation is a two-way street, since educators and professional materials are fruitless if the receiver is indifferent or disinclined. Students at Clark experienced a unique learning situation resulting from dampers that had been provoked by Clark ' s " facelift. " After the first semester, classes shifted from the basement floor to other niches in the building, a major disruption. " Noise pollution " and " Workmen working " invaded classrooms by disrupting lectures and guest speakers, presenting teachers and students with humorous situations, forcing the Pioneer Family to adjust to its environment and allow progress to press onward. r Chairs, desks, and rooms, once occupied by students, are temporarily abandoned so renovation can take effect. Opened Doors ... Opened Doors ... Opened Doors ... Opened D( Academics Opened Doors 35 Speech class enables Jim Pike and Sue Ostrom to effectively air their views. Yarn t|J Compositions, speeches, novels, poems, and term papers-these bits of material are quite common to the English student. Though cries of complaint were commonly heard from the mouths of frustrated students, a great many of them consented that they felt English was their most interesting and enjoyable class. Members of freshman English classes spent many hours in class reviewing the fundamentals of grammar. Feelings like " this is dull, this is uninteresting " frequently raced through their minds. Sophomore English students would agree that speech making was a nerve-wracking Frosh discussion group members wait for someone to break the ice. With a semester ' s experience in oral presentation behind him, Mike Buksar gives a flawless “final " speech. experience. Sweaty palms, headaches, and plain old anxiety made many sophs ill at ease. As the year progressed, however, the students found their oral deliveries easier to handle. " Liberation " can best describe the English situation for juniors and seniors as they were able to select from a number of different English classes. Those enrolled in literature classes had a chance to exercise their independence, for much of their work was done on a task assignment basis. Comp, students will long remember thumbing through their dictionaries to avoid spelling errors and will never quite forget such logical falacies as " hasty generalization " and " undefined term. " In Business English, students became familiar with the procedures of large companies when they set up their own corporations. Members of speech class were able to develop mastery of the spoken word. Those who had expected it to be a " hack off " class found the subject matter to be " not as easy as everyone said it would be. " No matter what course one elected to take, he found he gained much valuable knowledge, usable both in and out of the classroom. Academics English 37 The world in 1975-due to rapid technological changes-appears to be " shrinking " at an extraordinary rate. This " shrinkage " is bringing nations into closer contact, making the knowledge of a foreign language a true asset. Language mastery seems to be difficult, though, as only a fortunate handful seemed to be able to remember long lists of vocabulary words and correct conjugation of verbs. Some strived diligently to succeed in their language, hoping to be able to convey their ideas clearly in a foreign tongue. Others found their chosen language to be nothing but a hassle, using their dictionaries not for assignments but only to locate various obscenities. Be it French, German, or Spanish, students absorbed from the class exactly what they put into it. Verb tense mastery will aid Karey Pieters in her study of Spanish. Exchange student Renan Aguero of Costa Rica enjoys being the center of attention. Could she be jamming? Suellen Szarmach concentrates on a taped conversation. Academics Language 39 The Li sit Bright students, as well as burn-outs, attempted to see the light when snowed under in mathematics class. They entered the room with a ray of sunshine ready to switch on to new ideas, but a blackout immediately occurred upon leaving the mathematics basics. Freshmen made endless efforts to prove the commonly known 1+1=2. They knew the solution to this equation in childhood, and they wondered why a mathematics major had to have proof of such a simple problem. This is where the lights went out for them. The remainder of their math years was traveled through blindly. Sophomores measured their competence of lines, angles, surfaces, and solids. They defined, compared, and sketched more than their little hearts desired. As they progressed, a speck of light appeared to open their minds and materials began to stay in place. Pupils could then search their minds and use already proven theorems to test new principles. Yesterday, as the day progressed, the sun rose in all its glory. As students continually advance in math, their minds become enriched and they eventually see the light. In a state of astonishment, Mike Mashura watches Chuck Badnarik breeze through his problem. The heat is on Brian Ciastko as he attempts to prove a difficult theorem. Embarrassed by her mistake, Doris 1 oth just laughs it off. 40 challenge of working proofs. Academics Math 41 Concepts Chaos A world to explore—be it the complexities of the structure of the minutest sub-atomic particle or the awe-inspiring vastness of the universe— these things and much more awaited the science student. Blurry-eyed seniors stumbled into physics class at the ungodly hour of 7:20 hoping to increase their knowledge of motion and energy. The idea of playing mad scientist appealed to some chemistry buffs, as they applied what they learned in the classroom to their lab work. Others could not adjust to the atmosphere of the laboratory and found themselves breaking test tubes and causing minor fires. Those enrolled in biology classes studied various organisms of the plant and animal kingdom. Lab work commonly consisted of the use of the microscope in identifying cellular structure and bacterial presence. Advanced biology students conducted many experiments on live rats, gerbils, white mice, and hamsters, while advanced chemistry students did an indepth study of their favorite vitamin entitled " Everything you wanted to know about Vitamin C but were afraid to ask. " Muddled minds and blank expressions are characteristics common to the chemistry student. Physics-minded Ron Wleklinski and his colleague Bob Strempka try to verify Hooke ' s Law. Three minutes seem more like three hours to Jeff Batson while addressing his biology class. Academics Science 43 Sophomores find note taking an essential part of history class. juniors become bored with the facts of America ' s past. Shorthand efficiency gives Sharon Banas a marketable skill to offer employers. Filing teaches students like Janice McCoy the importance of organization. In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. In 1975 the business world continued to strive. Things began with future bachelors and bachelorettes preparing themselves, throughout the school year to begin their voyage down the sea of life. The prospective secretaries braved the storms of shorthand, filing, and typing to prepare for a smooth landing. They didn ' t want to enter the world with closed eyes, but with open minds. Some girls combined college prep along with business courses hoping to enlighten their lives. They wanted to increase their knowledge as well as their abilities. The world is not always calm and peaceful, so they planned to sail, well armed. Even the male of the species can ' t be forgotten. They, too, faced the turbulence of bookkeeping and business machines while striving to master these skills. As they clicked through typing, fury arose within, only to cease with the day ' s end. Grunts and groans were heard frequently, but almost everyone rode out the storm. Social study students drifted into affairs by increasing their knowledge on the economic turmoil. Pupils entered classrooms empty minded and for some, note books remained blank, but many departed with gears in motion. Sophomores and Juniors scurried sluggishly through history class o nly to find themselves caught in the maze of government and econ. Here they learned the true meaning of boredom, an extra hour to catch up on lost sleep. In the meantime, sociology brought about class discussion to get things off of one ' s chest. At the journey ' s end, the cruise into life will long be remembered. Academics Business, Social Studies 45 " Exercise! Eat the right foods! Dress properly! " These are three cliches w hich are heard often but are not taken to heart. " Kids " finally began doing something about the increasing lack of interest in life. Due to the fact that students wished to expand their gymnastic abilities, an advanced phys. ed. class was offered for the first time. Juniors and Seniors were given more freedom to express themselves instead of following strict schedules. Later, if one walked through the corridors, he could detect the aroma of different concoctions. Following his nose, one would stumble into the foods room. Here the pupils learned what foods to eat for healthy living and how to prepare them. To gather the facts, students turned to sewing class to put a stitch on the rising cost of living. They fashioned clothes to fit their images. All in all, new enthusiasm shaped the life of the eager beaver. Academics Home Ec Phys. Ed. 47 " It ' s a break from the hum-drum of the classroom, " was one of the reasons cited by many students for their involvement in the Music Department. With scheduling difficulties as they were, however, students were frequently talked out of taking band, orchestra, or choir by counselors who felt that other, more scholarly courses should receive top priority. " People don ' t seem to realize, " commented one choir member, " that I ' ve got to use my brain more in choir than in any of my other classes. " In the choir room, students learned music theory as well as performance. Even experienced concert choir members became tense at the thought of singing before the Choir. Reaping laurels were those involved in the NISBOVA contest. The efforts of the entire Choral Department brought forth their album. The Music of Christmas. Orchestra members put their personal feelings aside for the betterment of their organization. This co-operation paid off as the instrumentalists felt the " thrill of victory " in capturing a first in both the NISBOVA and the state Stage Band and Swing Choir contests. Band members used class time to add to their repertoire of marches, musical comedies, and pop tunes. Usually seen WinU ak den music al abiliti In art class, shop, and mechanical drawing, boys and girls are given the chance to express personal ideas and are able to design something of true originality. There are many kinds of tools and machines used during the art and shop classes, and students must learn about them and how to use them before they can begin to construct certain items. After these basic understandings are achieved, students can master the art of shaping and combining different materials to create definite objects. Mechanical drawing is the fundamentals of dimensions and sketching. In this class, students are acquainted with the basic principles of the construction and design of buildings. They also learn how to read and prepare neat and accurate blueprints. This year the Northern Indiana Art Association sponsored the first annual high school art show. The students 13 projects were expected to be creative, therefore, much time and effort went into their works during class as well as outside of class. These classes allow the students to express a part of themselves.

When a challenge exists, determination, pride, and the thirst for success take command of all bodily senses and the " Impossible Dream is apt to become a reality. This year, attitude, disci¬ pline, self control, and new techniques had formulated squads of victory and newfledged talents. At the eleventh hour the gridiron was struck while it was hot, and Pioneer football was emancipated from its thirty- year-bond of defeat. J.V. Cross Country also experienced the sensation of a conference championship and girls came into clearer focus as volleyball, basketball, tennis, and track laid the firm foundation for Girls ' Athletics at Clark. The trend was broken and doors were opened to any individual with the interest, desire, and drive to participate. The spirit of compe¬ tition was revolutionized and a " lift " was experienced physically-depicted in the faces of the accomplished and mentally-experienced in the thrill of the triumphant and the disappointment of the defeated.

It was high school athletics that put the theories into practice. The first steps in the evolutionary process towards varsity perfection, the systematic " weeding out " of tomorrow ' s headliners, come at the freshman and junior varsity levels of competition. Mr. Yelton assumed the freshman football headcoach ' s job, and along with Mr. Ridgely, had to form an initial cell along the lines of the varsity program. This task must be accomplished with elements from different schools with different football backgrounds. The B-squad consisted of sophomores, juniors, and occasionally a few seniors. Their goal was to adapt to the style of play of their varsity counterparts, with whom they practiced daily. Mr. Hovanec had a task similar to that of Mr. Yelton, except that he prepared freshmen for the demanding world of basketball, " Pioneer style. " Mr. Otis, a new face at Clark, had the most success in the evolutionary process. His J-V basketballers were fit enough to survive in 14 of 20 games and several players " showed real promise. " Not everyone who played football or basketball this year will be here next year, but those who are will be evolving into the athletic future of Clark High School. FROSH FOOTBALL TEAM-Front Row: D.

This year ' s team marked the end of the basketball cycle that rose Clark to prominence in recent years. Ron Sieman ' s second season as the Pioneer coach was marked by injuries to key personnel. Only one starter who was a starter last year, was involved in the nerve skattering, come-from-behind losses, and an 8-13 record. But through the adversity came bright moments ... a tensioi packed 42-41 win at Whiting. Mark Skertich ' s 30 point night in a 74-59 pounding of Morton.

Competition is one of the oldest instincts in man and the most revered form of competition is when one man goes out on his own to try himself against other individuals. Runners experience this; so do swimmers and golfers. But wrestling presents probably the most matched competition possible. Generally, both contestants weigh the same and have the same move s and countermoves at their disposal. When two wrestlers meet in the most primal form of competition, they must rely on their individual quickness and strength. The job of the wrestling coach is to refine these abilities in his athletes. However, not every wrestler attains refinement. A 3-7 record for this year ' s Pioneer wrestlers show that this was the case for Coach Tennyson ' s team. Nearly half of this year ' s starters had a minimum of experience, hurting the team ' s chance. Out of this difficult season emerged four senior stars, Fred Behrens, Rick King, Joe Klen, and Jeff Leimbach; all went as far as the regionals on the state title trail. Behrens and Klen fell early in the competition, but King and Leimbach advanced to the Calmuet finals before being stopped. King and Leimbach posted individual 21-3-1 records-models of the refinement of competition. Freshman B-squader, Rod King, pulls down an adversary for the first points.

It ' s already been said that change eventually comes to Clark. Yet this school also remains a home of time- honored tradition. And what could be more time-honored than track, golf, and soccer? Organized track and field events date back to the ancient Olympics. Golf found its beginning in Scotland during the twelfth or thirteenth century. Soccer is rumored to have started in very old England when some people unearthed the skull of a long-dead Danish conqueror, and kicked it through the streets. The super patriots of their day. Often this spring, Clark athletes fared about as well as that Danish cranium. Small numbers, early " retirements, " and sickness and injury made the track season a struggle. Whiting, Gavit, and Roosevelt finally fell to the Pioneer runners late in the season. The frosh-soph track team fared only slightly better. Mr. Watkins attributed inexperience to be the cause of a dismal golf season. With no returning seniors, junior Don Moats was the only regular back this year. The soccer team again failed to break out of the aggrevating slump of the last few years. Inability to score and an abundance of opponent ' s penalty shots made the kickers an easy mark despite some admirable defensive performances. Time, honor, and tradition; nice, but no substitute for victory. Ask any runner, jumper, medalist, halfback, or goalie. Soccer Team-Front Row: B. Dugan, D. Zajac,). Vrabel, K. Boswell, R.

Lewandowski Ail-conference selection Ralph Rewers puts down a crucial bunt. It didn ' t happen the way it was supposed to. Shortly before the end of training an optimistic Coach Williamson looked forward to what would in his estimation be a very good baseball season. It didn ' t happen that way. The Pioneers eked out a 10-13-1 regular season mark, and a 7-9 Lake Shore Bat girl Karen Pappalardo returns some Conference record. Clark lost four hardware to the Pioneer bench. games by one run, one of those a 1 -0 loss to league champ Bishop Noll. After such an on-and-off season, one wouldn ' t expect a team to do too well in tournament play. But it wasn ' t quite like that, either. Clark drew a bye before defeating Munster 4-3 and winning a spot in the finals. Under the lights at Block Stadium on June 3, the Pioneers surprisingly held off Noll, and even led for a time, before a four- run, sixth inning caved in on the Clarksters, and state finalist Noll had a 4-2 victory and sectional title. Perhaps the only thing that should have happened and then really did were the selections of Jack Kowal and Ralph Rewers to the all-conference team. Otherwise, it didn ' t happen just quite the way it was supposed to. oocr - ' ooo 184 Morton 168 184 Highland 166 5 Whiting 2 10 E.C.R. 1 3 Hammond 3 Hammond 10 Tech 8 E.C.R. 0 Gary Lew Wallace 1 4 Munster 3 2 Bishop Noll 4 ‘Sectionals Clark ictionals 2 .

Physical similarities may exist, but a " certain " something makes each man an original work of art. Personal expression is a facet of individuality that contributes to life ' s variety.

The year provided the opportunity for self- expression through diverse activities o r through the ordinary conventional routine day. Individual personality sparked the halls of GRC, often making Pioneer life bright, cheery-eyed, and a totally unique experience! Renovation provided a unique method of expression: " Pioneer Graffiti!

Under the direction of Mr. Shepard and Barb Franiak, members of the Class of 75 performed Story Theatre, written by Paul Sills and consisting of ten thought-provoking and stimulating short stories. This production k and the sale of fightbulbs were two important projects to raise money in order to reduce the cost of the Prom bids. Spirit and ambition ran high as many juniors campaigned and competed for the responsibilities of the 1974-75 Student Council and Booster Club offices. The year ' s activities came to a climax in May when the Gass of 75 presented the 1974 Prom, " Just You and Me, " held at the Ramada Inn in Dolton, Illinois.

OALE MERRY Alive in ’75 With the arrival of their last year in high school, the Class of 75 gladly ; accepted the traditional responsibilities of seniors. After a successful football season which meant being conference co-champs and a Whiting victory, the seniors anxiously anticipated basketball season. Winning alt the games was not as important as beating our cross-town rivals the Whiting Oilers. Despite an early loss in the sectionals, a better all- around sports season for their Senior Year could not have been desired. The days were flying and anticipation arose. Announcements were purchased and counting-lhe-days-untU-graduation began. Highlighting the year was the Senior Class Dance and the annoucemenf of the Ideal Seniors. Seniors loosened up in spirits and dance to display the true meaning of class unity.

Flowers and more flowers had the Class of 75 in the Pioneer spirit and with pride throughout the homecoming activities. With Fred Behrens ' truck as their vehicle and Margie Seraf in ' s garage as their working station, seniors dreamed of a first place float and a Pioneer victory. These thoughts kept the guys pounding and the gals fluffing. After staying up all night and gladly skipping a few classes the next day, seniors added the final touches to their spectacular exhibit, " We Noah the Tigers ' II Miss the Boat. " At the annual pep assembly, the Senior Skit was presented and senior enthusiasm captured a blue ribbon in the Yell Contest. That night, victory was in the air as Voris ' Ark sailed to its hardworked and well-warned pot of gold. BRIAN PETERSON JAMES PiKE-AVO 9-10 (V. Pres.}; Band 9-11.

Clark High School had been a prominent stepping stone along a constantly moving, constantly changing life style for the Class of 75, After graduation, each senior must depart along his separate way as the road of success branches out before him, A whole future of unknown surprises awaits every senior. Whether it be furthering his education, seeking employment, raising a family, or just being a bum, each one must make decisions about what he will do for the rest of his life. All of this brought a unified class to where if stands, facing tomorrow. Experiencing these high school days helped seniors to look into the fut ure with a little more knowledge and a Httle more confidence. So much of tomorrow is based on today!

It has been said many times before ' Enjoy your senior year-it goes by fast! ' This year was no exception. Measuring for caps and gowns in January left feelings of sorrow and uncertainty about the future among seniors. There were many anxious hearts counting the days, but these hearts saddened at the thought of leaving Clark. Leaning more toward the religious aspect was the afternoon Baccalaureate ceremony. Graduation was the final step before the doors of Clark and high school life closed behind them. June 4 finally arrived, and all the ties were broken, The silent humming in the huge gymnasium set a tranquil background for the thought-provoking speeches of Valedictorian, Linda Navta and Salutatorian, Marylynn Samek. The Seniors have just emerged from four of the most wonderful, confusing and memorable years of their lives.

Led by their responsible class officers, Fred Behrens, Carolyn Kovach, Lisa Schoknecht and Barb Franiak, with the help of dedicated sponsors Mrs. Leland and Mr. Williamson, the seniors were able to make their last year the best. After seven semesters of work, the top ten was determined. Leading them scholastically was Linda Navta. Marylynn Samek was salutatorian. Marylynn Samek was also named recipient of the DAR Award and Exchange Club ' s choice as Youth of the Year. For his intellectual achievements, Tony Matlon became National Merit Commended Student. Seven Junior Rotarians represented Clark, one each month, at the Rotary International Club meetings. Teena Banas ' outstanding musical talents earned her the honor of All State Choir Delegate. Every senior deserves an honorable mention for his achievements through the years. An end was near and the traditional senior class dance was their last big event. Climaxing the night was the announcement of the Ideal Seniors who were chosen for their special qualities and abilities. Many tears and smiles were displayed, but now only memories remain as they departed with feelings of accomplishment.

With Pat Raycroft holding the office of president, several meetings were held to discuss plans for the prom, one of the biggest responsibilities included in being class president. Helping Pat carry on this responsibility were junior class officers Vice-President Bill Pers, Secretary Lisa Bearden, and Treasurer Yolanda Tamez. To raise funds to finance the prom, students sold window stickers and key chains. At all basketball home games the window stickers and key chains were sold at the price of 60c each. The money gained from these items added to the money saved through financing the prom went to the treasury.

With the excitement of homecoming, taking PSAT and SAT tests, and planning the prom, juniors learned the meaning of responsibility and began to think seriously about their future. Some students made the decision to seek a college education. Others wanted to enter the bustling business world. The Prom was very time consuming with preliminary planning, the decision of the theme, and deciding where this event was to take place. The past three years of life at Clark have been exciting and intellectually rewarding. Juniors will reflect upon this year with much pride.

Juniors added to the excitement of the event with the construction of their float, " We Noah the Pioneers Will Rain, " at the home of Linda Novosel.

As incoming freshmen entered Clark as students for the first time, a new feeling of maturity surrounded them. Upon entering the auditorium, freshmen noticed that Clark had a personality all its own, different from that of the schools previously attended. Minor details were handled, lockers were assigned, schedules were distributed, and friends were made. All in all, orientation day gave " greenies " a glimpse of upcoming events as they began to discover they, too, had a place among the " Pioneer Family.

Freshmen elected class officers and collected class dues within one week. In Mr. Hoelzel ' s own words, the week became known as " Frosh Power Week, " and followed the plan of unifying the class. Election of class officers took place in the first week of the second semester. The reason for this was that early in the school year many new students were unfamiliar with classmates. If elections were to be held in the beginning of the year, the students might have made a poor choice of officers. Selected as President was Joe Biel, with the aid of fellow officers, Joe pulled the class of 78 through one of the most important years of their high- school life. Freshmen 113 MRS.

" ( ■ Although this was Mr. Burdock ' s first year as principal of Clark, he easily adapted to his new surroundings. He was very pleased with the warm welcome he received from his fellow faculty members as well as the student body. Mr. Burdock was extremely impressed with the enthusiasm and school spirit displayed by the Pioneers. Prior to Mr. Burdock ' s entrance as a teacher, he studied at Walbash College where he received his Bachelor ' s Degree in Arts and Sciences. He furthered his education at Loyola University and Purdue University. After obtaining his education, Mr. Burdock began his teaching career in English at Hammond High School and taught for nine years. He was appointed assistant principal and after fulfilling the position of assistant principal for six years, Mr. Burdock was selected among thirty applicants to be the new principal of Clark. Although Mr. Burdock has many duties as principal, he still finds time to keep up with his outside activities. He is an avid sports spectator and also an athlete. Mr. Burdock has proved to be well-placed principal and we, as students of Clark, accept him into the Pioneer Family. MR. JAMES BOYLE . ..

" The year 1975 proved to be an exciting as well as limited year for the faculty and students alike. Many teachers waited with anticipation the new facilities which entailed an improvement for their classes. Clark ' s faculty was forced to work with equipment that was out of date and not conducive to teaching. Teachers were anxiously awaiting the final outcome of this renovation. On the other hand, many teachers were compelled to limit their lessons because of the voices of hammers, as well as chisels. Many teachers felt, however, because of the space and excessive noise roadblocks, the students were being deprived of extra learning that is essential to youth. Teachers also became frustrated with students as their minds wandered while listening to the pounding of a new Clark. Mr. Sieman was inconvenienced when his basketball practice had to be shortened because of the limitation of only one gym. Shorthand students strained their ears in Mrs Wojtas ' classes in order to hear dictation over clashing pipes and falling bricks, and as dust filtered through the vent during Mr. Shaw ' s Econ class, students tried to concentrate in vain. Although teachers suffered from these hardships, as well as many other similiar hardships, they realized the need for the new life Clark will soon see. MRS. CAROL FLORENCE ... Algebra, Business Math, General Math ... 1 year at Clark ... " I am sure all the noise and dust is worth it. " MISS KATHERINE GAZIS ... French ... 1 year at Clark ...

" While the 8:00 bell rang the mobs of rushing students penetrated through the halls, teachers prepared schedules and tried to make their classes more interesting for the school day. Many people think the jobs of teachers are relatively easy, but little do they realize the many situations the teachers are confronted with. Grading papers and determining the scale is a time consuming task most teachers share. As the grading period, sometimes referred to as D-Day, draws to an end, teachers are required to tally up the work of the students and compile the data into a sheet better known as a report card. Besides fulfilling the position as teachers, the faculty are sometimes labeled as " Babysitters. " Many students feel that they are much more intelligent than their teachers; each teacher needs to put the students into their right perspectives and show them who is the boss. This is sometimes a difficult task because students do not care enough nor do they respect the teacher enough to accept constructive critisim. Many faculty members are disignated to lunch hour duties making sure students do not wander the halls disturbing classes. Study hall and early morning detentions are other examples of teachers fulfilling the position of " Childwatchers. " Along with these trivial duties, teachers must try to teach their classes to the best of their ability, attempting to prepare students for their future. MR. JAMES HOELZEL ... English ... 2 years at Clark ... " I just keep thinking of the future and tell myself that the finished product will be well worth the problem-or at least I hope so. " MR. TIM HOVANEC .. .

" As the school year began, The students attempted to welcome new members of the faculty. Pupils still continued their relationships which had grown through the years with the established teachers. Some students were openly able to reveal their inner thoughts in an enjoyable conversation with a special teacher. These teachers are not only authorities to convey knowledge but they are also faithful friends. Clark is also faced with teachers who are not willing to sacrifice time outside class. These teachers are labeled as strict observers of the 8-3:20 bell schedule. Although some teachers are inactive in after-school affairs, they can associate with the students in a friendly manner during the required fifty-five minute period of a school day. Faculty 121 MRS.

Each morning, the cooks wake up to the thought of preparing lunch for a hungry mob of students, as well as teachers. Soon they will be introduced to the new kitchen facilities and the old kitchen will become a memory. Answering phone calls, typing, and filing are just a few of the jobs the main-office secretaries do in order to keep the school running efficiently. Mrs. Allen the Guidance Department secretary, is in charge of keeping the students records filed and aiding the counselors. Being up a floor higher, the librarians are busy assisting students in locating various books to aid the learning process. After school, the custodians begin the tedious task of sweeping, dusting, and cleaning the mess which has been formed by the students during the day. Cooks—Bottom Row: E. Cummings, A. Holliar, S.

The Orchestra, Band, Choral Department, and Drama Department were forced to find substitute stages for their performances. The Whiting Community Center and Gavit High School hosted Clark ' s orchestra and Choral Department in their spring productions, while the Drama Club improvised and transformed Room 123, the large study hall, into its theater for their Spring performance. These groups survived the trials and tribulations of the " facelift, " while other organizations remained unaffected. These groups still enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and switch from routine offered them by the Thursday activity periods. Auditorium renovation hindered theatrical organizations, but the promise of the future was inspiring. oundations ... Foundations ... Foundations ... Foundations ... Foundations ...

" All right you people I want to see some spirit out there tonight, " was a familiar saying of Booster Club President Bob Vrlik while speaking at pep assemblies. The task set aside for Clark ' s Booster Club was not to be tossed lightly aside. The main objective was to promote spirit and support for various team and school events. As Homecoming neared, preparations began early and the product of hard¬ working hours was a lawn display, symbolizing spirit among the club members. Other club activities were organizing booster blocks for games, sponsoring dances, and developing spirit weeks. Another organization for the benefit of students is the Student Council. Cabinet members met in summer to begin preparations for the school year. Plans for intramural programs, dances, Expanded Curriculum, assemblies, and a Student Lounge were discussed, but some ideas were not accomplished. The intramural tennis tournament was avidly supported by students but disinterest in other sports events prevented further intramural programs. S.C. cabinet members participated in Student Exchange with other Hammond schools. Two assemblies during the year featured Mayor Lugar of Indianapolis and an amateur folk group. A third attempt, made in planning Expanded Curriculum, began early to insure success. Student Council Cabinet and Representatives-Front Row:). Zajac, G. Davis C. Kritz, F. Luptak, K. Gaylor, D.

Athletes and athletics lovers united to form the booster organizations of C- Club, CAC, Athletic Aids, and Mat Maids. The officers planned monthly meetings, discussing the C-Club banquet, dances, sweaters, and jackets, working at basketball games, and the concession stand, where most of the dub profit was consumed. CAC officers, along with club members, attempted to maintain an active organization permitting any girls to participate in volleyball, bowling, and basketball in a compettive spirit. Points received from participation in various sports are tallied for a final goal, a CAC letter and monogram. The CAC banquet was another major event the members attended at the close of the academic year. Mat Maids and Athletic Aids supported athletics by assisting in various sports as score keepers, timers, and officiators. During activity meetings, sponsor, Mr. Hemmingway describes proper scoring techniques to the girls.

" echoed through the halls as girls practiced for cheerleading tryouts. Long hours of practice paid off for those who were chosen. Many cheerleaders attended a one-week workshop learning new cheers and mounts. They returned home anxiously awaiting the football season. Homecoming arrived and spirit swelled as they painted signs, decorated locker- rooms and player 7 houses. Climaxing the season was the traditional Whiting-Clark game. Balloons with the slogan " We ' re backin ' the bustin ' Pioneers " were sold. Later, the cheerleaders treated the team to milkshakes. The basketball season meant more spirit and involvement. Extra efforts were put forth by cheerleaders for sectionals. A pep assembly was held banners were hung, the varsity team ' s bedrooms were decorated, and senior yellmen were incorporated into cheers. With the loss of Sectionals cheerleaders ' hearts grew heavy as they realized it marked the end of another year of cheerleading. Freshman Cheerleaders-Bottom to Top: B.McClelland, K. Tansky, M.B.

Their motto was " practice makes perfect " and under the direction of leaders Annette Girman and Karen Shebesh that is exactly what they did— hours and hours of practicing for precision and accuracy. Poms ran into some difficulty not having a specific hour scheduled during the day as a Pom activity. Therefore, practicing and planning had to take place after school hours. Among Twiler ' s activities were developing routines for games, practicing during fifth hours, and bake sales. Leaders this year were Sandy Wheeler and Celeste Jurek. Twirlers also took part in the Fourth of July, Christmas, and Memorial Day parades which were preceded by hours of marching, practicing, and planning for near perfect performance they could be proud of.

Society members were chosen for their qualities of leadership, character, and service. Under the guidance of Mr. Corder, NHS has carried out a tutoring program for high school students. This year, NHS sponsored Career Night, held on March 12, providing valuable information to both parents and students. Although the Thespians had a rather inactive year because of auditorium renovation, the ten members kept tradition by producing a food fair play. The major objective of the Thespians was to support theater both in school and in the community. To become a member, candidates must have earned points by participating in theatrical productions or other related activities. Members of Quill and Scroll gained membership by ranking in the upper one-third of the Junior or Senior Classes and demonstrating superior work on school publications. The major goal of Quill and Scroll was to promote better journalism in school and community. Mr. Burdock congratulates Nanci Dobos during National Honor Society induction. Thespians—Clockwise: R.

Organizations 137 Deadlines, headlines, copy, captions, and columns became important building blocks in the creation of a modern school newspaper format. Guided by first semester editor, Lydia Quattrin, P.N. staff engulfed in a new and exciting adventure, changing from an obsolete mimeographed newspaper to an offset, printed Pioneer News. Staff members ' efforts were rewarded by encouragement and congratulations from teachers and students who reacted favorably to the long-awaited breakthrough. It was difficult for staff members to become accustomed to working on the new format, but it was worth the extra work and confusion. When the second semester arrived, matters were not as rosy. Because of the unbelievable expenses of publishing an offset newspaper, the P.N. fell deep in debt. In order to make up for this loss of money, the staff had to regress to its previous position, reverting to a weekly mimeographed issue. Under the leadership of Cindy Dziezak, the staff continued publishing a weekly Pioneer News. Although the staff was not as enthused about working on a mimeographed paper, they continued supplying the student body with weekly information concerning school-related news and editorials. Frustrated Advertising Editor, left Glass worries and works over his bills and payments from patrons. Pioneer News Staff-Front Row: B. Lantz, ). Glass, ). Biel, ). Lovrinic. Second Row: Mr. Muir, S.

As darkness enveloped their surroundings, yearbook staff members Karen Pappalardo, Ann Marie Bugyis, Carolyn Kovach, Margie Bobos, and their editor Mary Lynn Samek worked on into the night to meet a deadline. 140 Yearbook Hysteria was implanted into yearbook staffers ' brains as soon as school began in the fall. As the first deadline approached, staff realized this was only the beginning-the beginning of a long, work-loaded, emotion-packed year filled with tears, headaches, decisions, arguments, and fun, with the end result being Powder Horn 1974-75. It was the hope of the entire staff that all their energies would successfully capture those precious memories. " Get your copy done! " " Think heads! " " Why are you guys so behind? " These were only some of the commands of yearbook editor Marylynn Samek and co-editors Karen Shebesh and Jean Zajac. Room 206 was always alive and buzzing with activity, while staff members ' brains turned on to yearbook style and composition. The room shook with emotion and excitement and enlightened the creativity of everyone there. Staff occasionally wished they had brought their sleeping bag and pillow to school that day as they worked long hours into the night and early morning. Room 206 became a second home for devoted and dedicated staffers involved in the book ' s assemblage. The fun times outweighed the difficult, tension-filled times, and food, glorious food was definitely an element of fun and enjoyment. Merry Isle profited considerably by the LARGE appetites of staff members. Eating supper in Room 206 became a habit. Being a part of the Powder Horn ' s completion brought staff members to the realization that developing a book was not the only accomplishment. Staff matured by the fact that working together and compromising was no easy task. One had to forget about me, myself, and I, and work for the good of the entire staff: The end result depicted the satisfaction, success, fulfillment, and pride of everyone involved.

Mike Carter, drum major, awaits the band ' s attention before beginning the half-time performance. Practicing long hours daily is a regular activity of G.A.C. band members. Early in the school year marching band industrously prepared for home football games producing a variety of half-time shows. Concert band waited in anticipation for the annual Christmas, Winter, and Spring concerts, and basketball half-times featured the pep band which added variety to home game activities. Without band members providing spirit and musical variety to school activities, ordinary events might have seemed unimportant. Beginning in the hot summer months band members prepared for the traditional Fourth of July Parade. They drilled marching formations and routines and learned new marching melodies. In addition to the Fourth of July parade, Clark ' s band participated in several Christmas parades and the Memorial Day parade. The end results were performances to make members proud. An hour for band scheduled each day enabled members to practice new techniques and skills, and perfect old ones. A Band-Front Row: S. Wheeler, B. Eski,). Baranowski, L. Zelenak, B. Kish.

The ensemble, under the direction of Mr. Matusiak, has taken part in numerous public performances including competition in NISBOVA Contests and the ISU Jazz Festival. The group has also taped a thirty-minute Jazz showcase. With its many performances in and out of school, the group has broug ht musical enjoyment to both students and community members. Although the " big Band " sound is definitely popular with them, selections vary from charts done by Stan Kenton and Woodie Herman to Carole King and Frank Zappa. The group consists of a fine trumpet section, a mellowed sax section, trombones with a definite but low brass sound, and a driving rhythm section. Many members felt that orchestra was an experience not to be missed. The gymnasium vibrated with pleasant sounds as Jazz Ensemble harmonized.

Opening the year, the choral groups presented the 11th Panorama of popular music. Selections included songs of musical teams. In the December Concert, selections ranged from traditional carols, to modern holiday songs. In keeping with the spirit of good cheer, the band presented a Winter concert. In May, the Choral Department presented the Spring concert; the groups were able to choose what theme they wanted and with help, were able to reproduce scenes from Broadway Musicals. These selections were performed by Serenaders, Concert Choir, and Girls ' Choir. The band also performed their last concert in May. The band ' s program included various types of music. The concerts provided outside recreation for those who attended. 148 Fall Concert provided a new learning performing experience to Mixed Chorus.

" Although the greetings mean the same, the languages are different and language club members soon discovered another aspect of learning a foreign language. Activity periods found them listening to popular foreign music, singing various songs, playing games to promote better vocabulary, reading stories and folklore by well-known authors, and devising new money-making projects. A number of bake-sales were held by the clubs throughout the year, raising funds to contribute to the I. U. Honors Program. German foods provided just the right accent to an already exciting field trip to Chicago ' s German Town. The members saw two movies and were allowed to go shopping in " vielen verschiedenen Laden. " The German Club Christmas party was a complete success, including the initiation of the freshmen members. In order to broaden their cultural horizons, French Club members attended skits given by students at a French Festival held at Spohn. Celebrating " Chriistmas Around the World " at the Museum of Science and Industry was one of the year ' s highlights for Spanish Club members. The homecoming floats produced by the various clubs were judged with Spanish Club emerging at the top with a first- place ribbon. Organizations 153 Creativity was given the opportunity to run free in the form of the talents of the Art, Handicrafts, and Sewing Club members. Under the careful supervision of Mrs. Grych, the members of Art Club allowed their imagination to take over as they employed various materials to create original masterpieces. For those students with a creative knack for everything and anything, the Handicrafts Club provided time to work on projects and learn new craft ideas and techniques. The club sponsors made arrangements for a new demonstration each week. Some of these demonstrations involved guest speakers, such as Mr. Mueller, who explained the construction of a candy Christmas wreath. Other presentations were given by the sponsors themselves, such as decorating " surprise-inside " Easter eggs. The purpose of the Handicrafts Club was not only to provide new ideas for the fulfillment of a hobby, but also to teach members to make use of unusable odds and ends. Orginality was not the only requirement of the Sewing Club. A certain basic skill with a needle and thread was necessary to insure the successful completion of projects, as member attempted new projects, some of which would have been too difficult for sewing class, they were assured of the able assistance and helpful advice of Mrs. Avery, the club sponsor.

Home Ec Club members quickly clean up before the bell. 156 Working at home or on the job is one of the hardest decisions faced by many high school girls. Three clubs at Clark which provided backgroud information in these fields were the Future-Teachers, Home Economics, and Health Careers Clubs. Insight into the different health fields was the main purpose of the Health Careers Club. The members, sponsored by Mrs. Siara, travelled to Highland to learn the functions of the Co-op Program, a program designed for teaching the mentally retarded and physically handicapped. The officers, being invited, travelled, to Indianapolis to an Officers ' Workshop where they learned new ideas for money-making projects. Another project which broadened the experience of club members was when the Future Teachers Club was given the chance to do some cadet teaching on the elementary level. A club that developed an interest in the community was the Home Economics Club, sponsored by Miss Ide. The main activity of the club, which meets the first and third Thursdays, was to work on various projects beneficial to the community. The Home Ec Club, along with Health Careers and Future Teachers, broke the monotony of a daily routine. Home Economics Club students converse as they prepare some of the ingredients for a recipe.

Many students chose to participate in game clubs on activity days and to develop the arts of concentration, skill, and strategy. The two card games. Bridge and Pinochle, under the supervision of Mr. Kostopoulos and Mr. Watkins, offered students the opportunities of learning two internationally popular games and increasing their desire to strive for perfection by competing against each other. Bridge Club required attendance at both second and fourth Thursday meetings while Pinochle Club met at either one or all of the first, third, and fourth Thursday meetings. However, in both clubs, no prerequisites for knowing how to play the games were required. At each meeting, beginners learned the basics of the games, while the other students continued to improve their skills. Along with these card games. Chess Club sponsored by Mr. Casey, also helped to develop intense concentration, skill, and brilliant strategy. An air of silence prevailed as the students applied all of their conscious efforts to outwitting their opponents during the first and third Thursday meetings. A tournament was held and the four top-ranking p;ayers would then play in the tournaments of the Northwestern Chess Conference. 158 Boys Pinochle Club-Front Row: D. Robertson, D. Kazmeirski, R.

The scientists of tomorrow depend upon the students of today. The natural sciences are always being explored and the Conservation, Rockhound, and Biology Clubs gave students that opportunity. Conservation Club is well-known because of its efforts to improve the environment. A field trip to Jasper- Pulaski, Fish and Game Reserve gave the members an opportunity to extend their knowledge of nature ' s beauty as well as relax in a different setting. Although field trips did not highlight their year, rockhounds learned to quickly identify field specimen minerals and tumble certain rocks and minerals into gem stones during their activity meetings. The lab was the main setting for the members of the Biology Club as they carried out their club experiments. Under the guidance of their club sponsors, Mrs. Leland and Mr. Yelton, members were free to familiarize themselves with aspects of biology attractive to them. Individual research and experimentation was stressed in each club. The mini-tramp provides an exhilarating experience for a straddle vault well executed. Reading Club-Seated Clockwise: D.

They tried to develop an understanding for the proper and safe methods for the use of equipment and safety techniques. Industrial Arts Club taught proper maintenance and safety of equipment. Special projects were done in various areas. Reading Club sponsored by Mrs. Huber was divided into two sections: freshman and advanced. The goal of the club was to create an interest in reading and to become aware of its importance in society. Forum Club was an experimental club this year. Sponsors Mr. Otis and Mr. Bogee brought students into discussions on current event subjects such as President Ford ' s foreign policy. Experiments lead to new discoveries and the Forum Club was an experiment successfully conducted. Striving for perfection, two members of the Industrial Arts Club professionally complete their projects.

Adaptation to change is difficult, oftentimes opposed and loathed. To progress may mean to regress-for a season¬ turning the tide for the already-established. It is a fact that the 1974-75 school was a difficult in¬ terlude. Change infiltrated an aging forty-three- year-old and left its mark: a scar to some and an adornment to others. The wrinkles and phys¬ ical fraility born of age are slowly but surely being strengthened. The Spirit of Togetherness, of working as a unit with the hope of achieving a common goal has been vital to the Pioneer family and will become more vital as changes press onward. Pioneer Pride had been the result of total and complete unity. acelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ... Facelift ...
