Tll MRS. HASEU
Any institution needs a leader, one who is capable and willing
to devote his or her talents to further the education of its students.
In Mrs. Bascom the students of Bayless High have found just
these qualities. During her entire service to the furtherance of our
education and talents, Mrs. Bascom has given freely of her time
and effort to help us grow scholastically and otherwise. She has
given everyone an equal chance to advance, has created a feeling
of understanding between herself and the student body, and has
never refused help to any one of us who needed her advice
Mrs. Bascom has made Bayless High School what it is. She
worked unceasingly to give it the reputation it has today, and
we owe it to her to uphold Bayless' high ideals. For twenty-six
years she has strived to make these ideals materialize and has been
To you, Mrs. Bascom, we wish to express our sincere thanks
for all you have done for us by dedicating the 1946-47 ORACLE
to your honor.
We shall miss your familiar presence in Bayless' corridors, 'but
we Want you to know that you shall never be forgotten by us.
May all your future undertakings be just as successful as those
you have accomplished in the past.
Thank you, best wishes, and God be with you.

As we, the Seniors, leave Bayless High We
are partially closing the door on many hap-
pily spent hours and memories. Its familiar
corridors reflect the poignant memories of our
Hrst high school days, the athletic events, the
proms, and the thrill of graduation. We shall,
however, return many times in spirit, as Well
as in person, While we relive those happy days,
and the pages of this book will beaturned
many times in fondreverence.

Holstein, Betty Rueschhoff, and Anita Fliegl.
Kneeling: Donald Breihan and John Coleman.
Absent: Frank Balzer, Jacqueline Murphy.
This year has seen a welcome addition to our
administration. Mr. Mitchell has taken over the
duties of the principal of our high school.
He has proved himself a very capable leader
in classes and sports, for he has spurred the Bay-
less Track Team on to greater heights.
The student body certainly appreciates his
fine guidance and helpfulness in solving seem-
ingly impossible problems.
We are sure he will always be remembered
by those who have had the chance to make his
acquaintance as a teacher and friend.
Our administration has been directed by Mr.
Beck during 1946-47. He can often be seen
briskly walking through the halls or sitting at
his desk arduously Working on some current

Richard is a short fellow who has been at
Bayless for four years. One of the more quiet
members of the class, but friendly when one
gets to know him. Of course, we know he has
something behind that bashful air of his! Rich
plays the trombone in our band and has been
a participant for the last few months in the
All-County Chorus. We have all enjoyed his
company and wish that we could get to know
him a lot better. A likeable guy. You bet!
Best wishes for success.
November 23, 1929
For short she's called "Purnmie." The only
way she can answer a question is by the inter-
jection, "huh?" Excels in laughing. Eunice
and Lois are inseparable and nd each other
helpful in writing themes. She is always busy
before 8:30 doing her e ry home-work.
G d luck Eu ice

l Q is,
"Vv'ally" is one of the most likeable and fun-
loving boys of the class. His talents vary from
playing the accordion to being a guard on the
basketball team. What would the Senior girls
do without "Wally" and his Ford? Yes, he
has proven helpful in more ways than one.
Keep up that swell playing, Wally. Bayless
will always remember those grand dance tunes
you played. Good luck!
January 27, 1930
This dark-haired lass has won many friends
in her years at school. "Elem has a clear so-
prano voice which she displayed many times.
She regrets having bleached a streak in her hair.
Her quiet, easy-going manner in addition to
a grand personality will certainly make her a
success in life. All our best wishes to you, Ele.
June 28, 1929
"Hirsh-Birsh" is a Senior with big, brown
eyes. She loves to be with a crowd. Every year
her hair is a different length, but we like
"changeable" people. With her charming per-
sonality the world will gladly accept her. Al-
ways happiest when that certain someone is
around. Bayless will miss her charming smile!
The best of everything to alcheerful girl!

"Al" is our one and only Vet-and a valu-
able asset to the class. He possesses a beautiful
pair of eyes and a physique second to none!
"Al" is a good speaker and the members of
the Speech Class obtained much information
about the Navy from him. He is one of the
most traveled persons we know. Thanks for all
those interesting yarns, Al. We really enjoyed
hearing them. To you then, we wish all the
luck that the future can hold.
May 13, 1929
Pretty blonde hair, exquisite clothes, plus a
sparkling personality make up "Ele." She is a
very popular girl as was shown by her being
elected as our basketball queen in her Junior
year. Another Baylessite whose favorite pas-
time is talking. A participant in all sports and
a leader in many school activities. Surely,
"Ele" will take her place in the world.
ARTHUR MARKUS: Q
August 27, 1928
Gay, witty, and an interesting conversation-
alist and a weaver of VERY tall tales. "Art"
has been at Bayless since he was knee-high to
a duck. His ambition is to be a butcher, and
we certainly hope that the meat situation im-
proves so that Art can realize his ambition.
Art's sense of humor adds the finishing touch
to any crowd. Lots of fun-that boy! Keep
it up and you'll go places.

Q .4 bye
October ll, 1929
A four-year "man" at Bayless who excels in
being quiet. Milton is happy-go-lucky, and
never worries. This fact we can all verify.
"Milt" is Harashe's opponent in the sousaphone
section of the band and really does a swell job
of tooting that horn. Always prompt to classes.
But-don't get the impression that "Milt" is
an angel! Far be it from that, but it isn't often
that we find him "in Dutch." Thanks for all
the fun you've given us.
July 23, 1929
"Shirl" is a blue-eyed beauty with a spark-
ling smile and a pleasing personality. As a
pastime, Shirl likes to complain. She can usu-
ally be found helping out in the music depart-
ment. One of her well-known songs is, "Senti-
mental Journeyf' And, another thing! By
shrewd observation we have noticed that she
has, on a very conspicuous linger, a spinell ring!
We wonder where she got it? It seems to be
dated 1946! Lots of luck, Shirl.
June 30, 1929
Tall, blonde, and handsome is this up-to-
date fellow with the big blue eyes. For the
latest Zoot styles you can always depend on
Elmer. Sometimes quiet and other times---.
This 1ad's favorite pastime is sleeping during
classes. His pleasant sense of humor, girlish
giggle, and jokes CU brighten many a dull
moment. Our highest regards to you, "Elm,"

Another blonde! And how! Always eager
to aid a teacher UD. Ed's favorite expression
is "Come on, kids, we want to study!" He
is, strictly speaking, a lady's man: known all
around school for his flashy clothes. We know
all the fellas envy him when he passes in that
flashy Ford. Also, the front seat is never empty.
Need we say more? Good luck, Ed.
KENNETH WooDRow:1"9Z' '
october 12, 1929 fp,
Kenneth and Bob Litnn or vice versa. Either
way you take it, it's a pleasant combination.
Ken is tall, dark, and very friendly with a gift
of gab-except in Speech class. As Mr. Beck
said, "Why is it that they shut you up in other
classes and in Speech they make you talk!"
CAnd sometimes much against your willj
Yes, Ken, you came to Bayless late in your
school life, but we cannot express in words
how much we have enjoyed knowing you.
Loads of luck to a grand Senior.
January l, 1930
This tall, dark, slim Senior is one of the
best liked girls at Bayless. Her ever-ready smile
is flashed wherever she is. Enjoys mostly to be
in the middle of everything. Her serene manner
will take her far in life. Mary is a student--
and every teacher enjoys having her in their
class. Her interests in life are general. Best of
November 10, 1929
This shy, but handsome lad causes quite a
sensation among the girls. "Hersh" is one of
the best dressed fellas in the class and has Won
many a friend with his pleasing personality and
witty disposition. It must take a lot of exer-
tion and effort to produce those low B-flats on
that sousaphone-from what We hear. fAnd
we don't mean gossiplj This cheerful Senior
loves the world and the world loves him. Go
to it, Hersh!
August 25, 1929
Jenny Lind? Why. we have one in our class!
Yes, indeed, Helen, that's what we think of
your voice. lt's a pleasure to listen to you sing
and We hope that someday you'll get THAT
break. She's a cute, jolly, black-haired lass who
delights in driving the car. fPedestrians be-
warelj She has played the oboe for a number
of years and participates in the Mixed Chorus,
Cilee Club, and-All-County Chorus. Keep sing-
ing, Helen, we'll always be listening-no matter
where you are!

Ah, yes! Five foot eleven inches of merri-
ment, genius, and personality. Answers to
"Herk!" Rich expects to enroll in Washington
U. to study CU engineering. This happy-go-
lucky fellow is interested in math and science:
his ability to understand many such intricacies
is envied by all. This statement can be proven
if you examine this book more closely and see
that he was elected President of the Science
Club. Best of luck to you always, "Herk!"
Nlay 30, 1929
Here's a girl with a charming personality.
Lois' popularity has won her the candidacy for
basketball Queen along with Betty Muller this
year. Lois' refreshing humor can be heard echo-
ing through the halls from Monday through
Friday. Besides being very active, this little
miss isn't so bad at solving domestic problems.
Good luck, Lois.
January ll, 1929
Quote, "I'm tall, handsome, intelligent, and
intellectual" CU unquote. CThis is Joe's ver-
sion of his personalityj This chap loves sports,
especially baseball and basketball. He can usu-
ally be seen strolling through the halls with a
certain Senior. His ambition is to be a profes-
sional baseball player and a part of this ambi-
tion has already been realized, for Joe has spent
several summers playing professional ball. Best
wishes, Joe, maybe someday we'll be seeing you
in Sportsman's Park.
January 7, 1929
"Herby" is Cone of the most studious girls
inb our class. She was elected Assistant Editor
of this "Oracle" and as Secretary of the Dra-
matic Club. Any time the Seniors want to
know anything, just ask "Herb" and she'l1
know the answer. Doris excels in playing the
piano and is the chief accompanist for the Music
Department, and plays in the Band. Doris and
Dot-they're always together and have a good
time playing jokes on each other. We wish
"Herb" all the success life can hold. Another
All-County Chorus member.
April 23, 1930
Just a practical joker and quite a character!
Most frequently seen with Ed. When anything
foolish circulates around school, Herman is
usually in on it. He always blames the girls
for talking. Cf course, "Hemi" never talks?
His favorite pastime is playing ball and Ending
surprising things to say. Keep the world laugh-
March 5, 1929
Marion is more or less on the quiet side.
She's a sincere singer every Wednesday night
and also participates in the Bayless Mixed
Chorus. She possesses a happy-go-lucky per-
sonality and always has a smile for everyone.
Marion is a very punctual student and the
faculty enjoys her presense. We know she'll be
a success in any profession.
February 23, 1929
Just call him "Johnny" He's a very popular
lad-in more ways than one! Johnny is a very
speedy typist and also an excellent ball player.
He has helped Bayless to win many victories.
Johnny was elected as Editor of this book and
while others are engrossed in exciting novels,
he can be found with his nose stuck in a his-
tory book. Imagine-just for pleasure! His
ambition is to be a history teacher. We hope
you reach that goal, John.
April 7, 1929
"Willie's" laughter echoing down the halls
signifies that she has arrived to begin work.
Always rushing out of the building five minutes
before the bell rings to go to work. Her favor-
ite saying corresponds to that of another Senior
which is. "Who me? I didn't say a word!"
Colette doesn't believe that arguing with the
teachers pays off. U1 Her ambition is to be a
California songstress. We sincerely hope this
dream comes true, Colette.

Lois came to Bayless in her Junior year and
has won many friends with her pleasant per-
sonality. Lois is one of the most charming and
humorous girls in our class. She has been active
in Girls' Glee Club, Mixed Chorus, and Home
Ec. Her chief interest is to be a librarian as
is shown in 7th hour study hall. Keep up the
good work, "Pat,"
June 22, 1929
Elmer's amiable personality has Won him
everyone's friendship. He was elected president
of the class in his Junior year. Elmer seems
to lose all sense of direction when taking a tour
through a cave. Quite a cave-man! CYou'l1
never live that down, "Elrn."j The only way
the Seniors could distinguish "Elm" from the
donkeys was by his glasses and pipe. All our
sympathy to those poor, dumb animals! But,
as a matter of fact, here's one Senior who is
August 10, 1929
"Shorty" is just a little bit of everything.
Her ambition is to reach the very excessive
height of five feet. Her saying . . . "All precious
things come in small packages." Her giggle
fwhich reaches from do to doj can set every-
one into spasms. She studies just enough-no
more. The World will gladly accept this little
Senior. Good luck.
February 27, 1929
His name is "Don" and he is the possessor of
a very likeable personality. He came to Bayless
in his Sophomore year. The girls ind Don
"drool bait," but deff! He can usually be found
on a basketball team. His pastime is to see
what's cooking in Home Ec and We don't mean
food! Don is sure to become a business success
with his many pleasing ways.
December 17, 1929
This Irish Coleen has gained admiration
from all her friends as revealed by her being
elected as secretary of the Senior class. Jackie
is a hard worker and an asset to any organiza-
tion. A Baylessite for only two years, she has
made a hit with everyone. Her interests lie
wherever there's help to be needed. Good luck
-and thanks for all of your assistance, Jackie.
She, too, helped make the All-County Chorus a
success. 4 A16 ,V I If I' ,E

Tom is quiet, industrious, 'and the star of
Bayless' Track Team. He has a versatile char-
acter and is a friend to all. Tom is one of the
best dressed Seniors and is well-known for his
witty remarks which add the necessary spice to
any conversation. He hasn't decided what his
life's work will consist of, but we are sure that
he will be a success.
October 28, 1929
This tiny miss is one of the best liked girls
in the class-proven by her being basketball
queen candidate for 1946-47. The question of
the year-"Will Betty ever grow?" "Mull"
is 4'l2" of loveliness-not mentioning those
sparkling blue eyes and a big smile. Here's one
girl that doesn't have to worry about her hair
being straight. A sense of humor and her inter-
est in shorthand are definitely some of her plus
February 27, 1930
Don is one of our more quiet, industrious
lads. In Study Hall he can be seen quietly
observing the antics of the other rough-necks.
Yet, to know Don is to want to know him
better. He has upheld the standard of our class
with his good grades: and has hopes of enter-
ing a college. Here's wishing you a very color-
ful future, Don.

"Frank," a hard-Working student, considers
basketball and baseball his chief interests. For
his thirty points in a single basketball game he
was chosen Prep-Player of the week. His good
nature has made him one of the more popular
of Bayless' boys. I-Iere's an excellent combina-
tion of personality and ability - especially
along the mathematical line. He has been a
decided asset to our class since his first day and
We want to wish him all the luck in the world.
August 26, 1929
Vera's a possessor of a quiet, yet appealing,
personality and seems to be quite a typist. She
has proven that business and pleasure can be
mixed. Here's another one who loses all sense
of direction when in a case. She is loved ,by
all and there's never a dull moment when Vera's
around. No matter what anyone has to say,
we're sure that Vera will live up to our high
expectations of her. Vera is strongly attracted
to red hair and freckles.
September 30, 1929
A quiet lad who's pleasant manners have
made him a friend to all. Quite a student! He
is always in the company of two Bayless' nicest
boys, Richard and Milton. Does anyone ever
see Arnold wi.thout that big smile? Besides
being an ardent lover of animals, Arnold is a
sports fan. We know this good-natured lad
will go far in the business world. Best wishes,
October 15, 1928
When you need help just call on "Don"
Not only intelligent, but a very charming miss
with a friendly smile. "Dot" has a deep, ro-
mantic, alto voice which leads the girls in sing-
ing. Another All-County Chorus member.
This summer she attended Girls' State, a fact
of which she is very proud. And rightly so!
She is a talented pianist and we are confident
she'll be a great success in whatever profession
she chooses be it piano, or . . . who is he? Dot
was president of both the Dramatic Club and
Girls' Glee Club. Good luck.
February 27, 1929
Blanche is a very likeable girl and a friend to
all. She has a passion for flowers. Wherever
help is needed, Blanche is there and eager to
help. Her Indian blood probably accounts for
that beautiful, long, black hair. She aids in
upholding the alto section of the Mixed Chorus
and All-County Chorus. She finds school in-
teresting, but then, school finds her interesting.
too! Lots of luck, Blanche! ,QM
PAUL HALE1 f m

Paul, who has been President of r class inc Q
both our Freshman and Senior years, is a very
likeable chap. He toots a sweet note on that
Sax and has added much to our band. I-H56
extra-curricular activities are unlimited. But, all
joking aside-Paul is a prince of a fellow and
possesses just lots and lots of those things
known as brains! One of America's future

"Margie" is a quiet but pretty strawberry
blonde. Where did you get those great big,
beautiful, hazel eyes, Margie? "And after all's
said and done, there's really only one-oh Mar-
gie, it's you!" Studious, but not always. She
has a hidden sense of humor that creeps out at
the unexpected moment. People love having
her near them because of her friendly, cheerful
disposition. Because of classmates like her,school
continued to be a pleasure for all. Lots of luck,
March 14, 1929
"Don" is another charter member of THE
band and what a musician! Quite a profes-
sional! He plays piano and several other in-
struments. This grand fellow has a pleasing
personality and quite a sense of humor-our
personal belief is that Don would make a good
comedian as he has so often proved at our Stunt
Nite performances. Thanks for the swell music
you furnished at all of our entertainments.
Loads of best wishes to a grand classmate.
June 16, 1929
This blonde beauty was an active member of
the Girls' Volleyball Team, and has helped sup-
port the soprano section of the Glee Club and
Mixed Chorus. She has a disposition that is
a source of comfort and joy to her friends.
Despite her quiet, reserved manner, Elo has
greatly enlivened life at Bayless. We shall miss
this sweet, friendly girl.

January 18, 1930
He is known as "Eddie" When you hear a
low voice with a little chuckle, you know that
Ed has just told one of his corny jokes. His

Here is vim, vigor, and vitality all rolled into
one. "Betz" is on her best behavior when read-
ing a book. Dancing is her favorite pastime.
Her charming smile, big blue eyes, and ringing
laughter helps to keep up the morale of our
class. Yes, she is quite a nice girl and we will
all miss her. Our highest regards to you, Betz,
we've certainly enjoyed your companionship.

Blonde hair, blue eyes are the qualities nature
has bestowed on this versatile Senior. As a ball
player, he is really super! Carl also excels in
math and science. He has been known to be
called "quiet," but those of us who really know
him can see that this is not really so. He has
a grand easy-going way about him and we
know whatever field of work he chooses will
hold many opportunities for him. Carl is Bay-
less' top ping pong artist. Good luck, Carl.

A charming little lady always willing to help
the people who are in trouble. She can usually
be seen with "Flo" "Eddie's" favorite by-
word is, "Hi, Babe," or "What do you know.
kid?" She enjoys taking Home Ec and we think
her mind is set on a domestic future! Who
knows? A vital part of her personality is the
fact that Eddie seldom is without a piece of
gum! Have a piece of gum, chum. We know
she'll be a success in whatever path of life she

Our shortest, blondgfella. Bob is more or
less on the quiet side, and thus we hear little
from him-in class. But on the outside, oh
boy, can he chatter or can he? Another mem-
ber of the band-a French horn player. Bob
also plans on entering col-lege. It is rumored
that he wants to study interior decorating. We
hope you like it, Bob, and know you will be
a success. , - -

twirling a baton in all of Bayless' parades. An-
other Senior "ProXie" who has personality, a
beautiful wardrobe, and a daring smile. She
excels in pounding the typewriter: Jeanne is
one of the best liked girls in the class. In her
Junior year, Jeanne's voice completed the Bay-

Bayless' top camera man. Russ is quite an
eilicient artist, too. We have all seen his beauti-
ful posters and drawings around the building.
He is also a member of Bayless Band, holding
an important position in the trumpet section

Quiet, polite. and ambitious are the personal
attributes that won Jack the title of the "best
boy citizen" in his Soph year. Even though
Jack is quiet he is known to all the students

an anonymous source that it's really sleeping!
Whatever it is, we know Jack, as usual, will

NIIITHER ' CLUB HH PATRIINS' ASSIIEIATHIN
MRS. VEARL MORRIS MR. E. L. LEHMANN
The Senior Class of 1947 Wishes to express its
sincere thanks and appreciation to the Bayless
Mothers' Club and Patrons' Association for the help
and guidance they have given us throughout our
high school years.
THE CLASS OF '47.
Contemporary values and goals shift and change
with changing conditions. But there is a set of stand-
ards nearly universal which include: justice and fair
dealing, honesty, truthfulness. observance of cove-
nants, recognition of regularly constituted authority,
due regard for the rights and feelings of others, coop-
eration and mutual help, disposition to carry one's own
load, tolerance, and respect for individuality.
Assuming that means are adopted to insure under-
standing of these standards, there remain certain tech-
nics which may supplement understanding by stimu-
lating emotions and thus produce attitudes. Among
these technics are: ritual, music, drama, literature, art
and architecture, sportsmanship, hero Worship. Cf
course such technics will come to be viewed as means
and not ends. It is important that all social institu-
tions come to be regarded in the same light.

The purpose of this club, which is under the very
able supervision of Mr. Alvin Oberg, is to teach one
to think by analyzing and solving problems: and to
acquire a better understanding of mathematics.
During the year many interesting problems were
solved and every member took an active part in trying
to solve these problems, and the meetings were antici-
pated with great enthusiasm.

vision of Mr. Mitchell, our science instructor. The
club is divided into two parts, science and photog-
The purpose of the scientific section is to give
students a chance to do scientiic experiments and to
explore things which are of particular interest to each
of them. How could we forget their excellent per-
formance on Stunt Night?
The members who are interested in photography
have learned how to take impressive pictures also
wanted to know how to develop these themselves.
Therefore, this became their main object. Many of
them did fine jobs as many of the students can prove.

The American Red Cross Club was organized in
October. This club is made up of the Civics class
which consists of 41 members.
The first project that was completed by the Red
Cross Club was the making of Hallowe'en place
doilies for the War Veterans in the hospitals. The
club also made two scrap books about American
school and social life and our own community affairs.
One book was sent to France and another to Egypt.
These countries will in turn send the club a book
similar to ours.
Mrs. Kardell has charge of this club and we can
honestly say that this group has done an excellent

goal in mind-to create a deeper appreciation of line
music among our students. It has made great strides
in this direction since its first meeting under the
competent supervision of our sponsor, Mr. Loyal

The Bayless Boys' Cilee Club is maintained for the
enjoyment derived from training the ear and voice to
appreciate and to sing good music. The members of
this club meet twice weekly, on Tuesday and Thurs-
day. Besides this regular training the boys partici-
pate in school activities such as Stunt Nights, the
Christmas program, Music Festivals, and graduation.

The principle of fair play may be stated as follows:
"Men must play the game of life so that each will
get as much as possible out of it." There must be fair
play in all fields of human activity-domestic, social,
religious, esthetic, educational, political, and economic
-and everybody must be admitted to the game.
Two methods of securing fair play at present are:
the compulsory method, fair play, laws: and the vol-
untary method, self discipline by organized groups.
But fair play, particularly that represented by the con-
cept of social justice, can be secured lastingly only by
a shift from narrow individualistic and group loyalty
to a loyalty to the common good.

The school's 1946-47 basketball team started off
with a bang-in the Wrong direction, with a first
game defeat by Mehlville in overtime. After that
game, the Bayless team enjoyed a ten game winning
streak until another loss to Southwest was suffered
in overtime. Winning again, we then were defeated
by Jennings in an overtime game preceding their nine
consecutive victories. At that time the team had a
20-3 record with all three losses occurring in over-
time. The final game of the year QBayless vs. Kirk-
woodj proved to be an evening of hard work for
the live regular members of the team. These boys
played the entire game and emerged as the victors.
The final tabulation was a season's record of 22
victories and 7 defeats. We can therefore consider
this year as very successful.
During this year the team brought home these
Hrst place trophies: one from Bayless' own Invita-
tional Tournament, another from Ferguson Tourna-
ment, and a third from the South County League.
The team also went to Desloge and Poplar Bluff
for games out of St. Louis. The Desloge try was
successful as the game was a six point victory. After
traveling to Poplar Bluff, the Bayless Bronchos re-
ceived the Worst defeat of the season. The trip was
enjoyable but We can not say the same about the
outcome of the game.

The "B" team had a 8-7 record for their season

or less. This will not affect the future of the l947-

A FALL "46"
With seven returning lettermen Bayless, under the
able direction of Coach Ficklin, began the fall base-
ball season of 1946 which proved to be very success-
ful. This team captured the County Championship
with seven victories and no setbacks. This was the
first undefeated team at Bayless in quite some time.
The pitching burden was placed mainly on Harold
Steinmann, Carl Holstein, and Jim Doerr, with the
latter two showing plenty of new talent on the dia-
mond. Carl Holstein also showed his batting eye
with a nifty .4-28 average. Here's hoping the future
baseball teams of Bayless will be this successful.
