Mr. V. C. McCluer
With loyal devotion, consecrated efforts, and good faith, twenty-tive years of
Mr. McCluer's life have been given unselfishly to instill into the youth entrusted to
his direction those virtues upon which rest good citizenship and leadership so
indispensable to our American way ot lite.
Mr. McCluer had an admirable dream of becoming an educator and obtained
his goal. But to achieve this goal he 'first received his Bachelor ot Arts Degree
at Westminster College then enlisted in the Marine Aviation Corps during World
War I. Following the war he continued his graduate work at Northeast Missouri
State Teachers College, Southeast Missouri State College, and then became superin-
tendent ot schools at Troy. He received his Master ot Arts Degree from Wash-
ington University. In July, 1930, Mr. McCluer came to Ferguson as its new
superintendent of schools.
May his efforts as an educator give to posterity a challenge to strive toward
the greatest heights of unselfish service tor humanity.
We, the CREST statt, dedicate the l955 CREST to Mr. McCluer and his
twenty-tive years of able supervision.
FERGUSON SCHOOL SONG
Till The rocks are rent a-sunderg
And The skies on us do fall,
Friend and foe shall hear our thunder
Ringing from our sacred halls.
We will ne'er forsake you, Ferguson
Our hearts will e'er stay True
Always proud to be called a song
For peace we'll never sue.
We will fight, fight, fight for victory,
Our heritage a guarded trusty
Till the light we no longer see,
And our beloved halls are dust.
THIS IS WHERE

Education began as a dream in the minds ot men ages ago.
Slowly it has evolved, gaining momentum and at long last has
reached a high pinnacle of attainment. The faculty and adminis-
tration at Ferguson High School are eminently aware that they
are directly influential in producing the potential leaders of to-
The Student Assembly, also included under administration,
proves to students true democracy in action. Our Student Assem-
bly allows the students who participate in it to get a practical
knowledge of a working democracy. With the distinct idea of a
living and working democracy the students of Ferguson High
School will be better able to become good citizens.
Our highly esteemed faculty has taught the students with
commendable success. The administration and faculty have at-
tempted to impress upon the students here at Ferguson that high
ideals and leadership are extremely important.
"lt is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken ioy in creative
expression and knowledge."-Einstein.
Nlr. V. C. McCluer
Not only has much improvement been
made in the R-2 district, but, Mr. lVlcCluer
and Mr. McCollum have accomplished
much by their untiring efforts in en-
deavoring to assist the students ot Fer-
guson High School in obtaining a good
education. These able administrators are
proud of the tact that the triple "A" rat-
ing has again been awarded the R-2 dis-
trict by the state of Missouri.
Because of the tremendous increase
ot population within the Ferguson-Flon
issant Reorganized School District, it has
been necessary to erect new school build-
ings and to provide additional educa-
Among the ettorts of our administra-
tors to meet this necessity was the con-
struction of an elementary school in Cool
Valley and the addition of tive rooms to
the present iunior high school.

The Board of Education consists of six mem-
bers who are elected by and thereby represent
the voters of the R-2 Reorganized District. Two
members are elected each year to serve a term
of three years. This year the board consisted of
the president, Mr. W. C. Brown, vice-president,
Mr. W. M. Gonzenbach, secretary, Mrs. G, B.
Burdett, assistant secretary, Mr. J. M. Geiger,
treasurer, Mrs. S. Patterson, and assistant treas-
urer, Mr. E. T. Sheridan.
The iob of the Board of Education has become
more difficult and complex with the constant
increase of population within the R-2 Reorgan-
ized District, Under the auspices of the Board,
dreams of bigger and better schools have be-
come realities. An eleven-room elementary
school is being built in Cool Valley, and additions
are being made to the DeSmet School in Floris-
sant. Eventually, if necessity so demands, these
schools may be enlarged to eighteen rooms. Five
rooms, including a gymnasium, are being added
to the present Junior High School. lt is anticipat-
ed that this school will furnish supplementary
room for expansion of the high school in the near
future. A contract has been let for the con-
struction of eight more rooms on this property.
An assembly room is being built for the Lee
Hamilton School, and twelve rooms are going to
be added to the Griffith School. The Board of
Education is looking forward to pursuing its am-
bition to see an Administration Building erected
on the high school campus.

lllllll l ASSEMBLY
The Student Assembly is the student governing
body of Ferguson High School. The members of
this highly important organization are chosen
from the homerooms. One representative and
one alternate are elected from each third-hour
class except for the study hall and chorus, from
which two representatives and two alternates are
elected. Special preliminary meetings were held
for the benefit of the representatives in order to
acquaint them with parliamentary procedure and
their responsibilities as Student Assembly repre-
When a student is selected to be a represen-
tative, he automatically becomes a member of
one of the Student Assembly committees. This
year the Student Assembly committees included a
division of the Publicity Committee into Art and
Articles, and a special committee formed to
supervise the collection for our two foster chil-
dren, six-year-old Yum Kwang Sook, a Korean
war orphan, and Regina Zigmunds, a twelve-
year-old Latvian displaced in Germany. Pat
Wehking was chairman of the Special Commit-
tee for War Orphan Collections.
ln the spring of the preceding school year the
Student Assembly officers were elected. They
were Dave Young, president, Don Luke, vice-
president, JoAnn Geiger, secretary, and Bob
The Student Assembly met every other week
to learn and practice democratic principles in
discussing all problems which arose in the home-
rooms and which were brought to the meetings
by the representatives.
The sponsors of this year's Student Assembly

with the students for the betterment of Ferguson
High School since T944 and Mrs. Marian Sniffen
who has also been a sponsor of the Student
Assembly since T952

The future is looking toward us and our dreams. The boy
who sits next to you in chemistry class dreams of being a physicist
or a scientist-one day we may see him as that. The girl in your
shorthand class dreams of becoming a good secretary, this also is
possible. And the girl to whom you are so very close in home
economics dreams of becoming a wife, homemaker, and mother.
Each of these dreams is important, worth-while, and very personal
and dear to each of us.
High school is the runway of our life where we can alter our
dreams or expound them further. Dreams are labor and time
consuming, therefore, wishing does not merely make them so.
As John Masefield said, "Sitting still and wishing makes no per-
son great. The Good Lord sends the fish, but you must dig the
bait." Set your dreams high and within future obtainment. Do
not lust daydream, dream with the intention of fulfillment.

process of being fulfilled. Your sophomore year is crowded with
school activities and clubs. You are full of school enthusiasm,

high point in your present dreams. But your dream reaches its
finale. You are a senior! lt's wonderfull You'll be graduating

This year, in an effort to give more students
an opportunity to voice their opinions in the se-
lection of the CREST Court, the election was held
in a different manner than in previous years.
ln January, the senior boys elected twenty-one
senior girls to be candidates for the CREST Court.
In the first part of February, the entire senior class
voted in an election which determined the nine
candidates for CREST Queen. Then, two days be-
fore the CREST Coronation Dance, each student
of Ferguson High voted for the candidate whom
he thought was most deserving and had con-
tributed the most service to the school. The
CREST staff elected eight senior boys to be es-
The queen was not revealed until the night
of the Coronation, February 26, when the gym
was transformed into a beautifully decorated set-
ting for the CREST Coronation. As the CREST
maids and their escorts walked up to the stage,
Cary Marshall described the girls' dresses and
told of their activities during their years in high
school. Gary Casetta related the high school
achievements of the escorts. After the CREST
Court had assembled, Betty Albrecht was
crowned CREST Queen of T955 by Fred Krieger,
Assistant Editor of the CREST.
The queen was attended by Linda Sue Hamlin
as flower girl and Penn Kelley as crown bearer.
The tense expectancy of the atmosphere was
lightened by their typically childlike reactions to
The processional and recessional for the Coro-
nation ceremonies were played by the high

Striving to make this year's CREST more infor- CREST STAFF
mative and interesting than ever, the CREST staff,
composed of nine seniors and four juniors, met
sixth hour every day.
The CREST staff gave an assembly to acquaint
the students of Ferguson High with the year-
book and to promote the sale of the CREST. This
year each member of the staff took orders for
the CREST, competing with one another to see
who could make the most sales. Janet Burns suc-
ceeded in outselling the other members, and
thereby received her CREST free of cost. This com-
petition may have been a determining factor
which led to a record sale of yearbooks. To help
lower the cost of the CREST, members of the staff
sold refreshments at the football and basketball
games, and sponsored the selling of individual
pictures which were taken at the beginning of
the school year.
The CREST staff also decorated for and sponsor-
ed the CREST Coronation to provide money for
the publishing of the CREST.

ganized Dancing Club. With Anne Mesnier as
president and a membership ot approximately

at the school dances by increasing the students'
skill and enioyment in dancing. With the aid of
recordings, Mrs. Cleary taught fox trots, rumbas,
waltzes, and other types of dances the group
was interested in learning.

Sponsored by "Doc" Watson, the Projection
Club elected its officers early in the year. They
included Phil Holden, president, Gerhart Jaspers,
vice-president, Bill Proctor, secretary, and Bill
Emmons, treasurer. Six active committees were
formed within the club in order that the members
would have complete control over its activities.
The new members of the club were trained and

the required test to receive their membership
The Ferguson High School Proiection Club was
the first acredited proiection club in the state of
Missouri for high school practical arts graduate
credit. One of the biggest iobs of the club was
its community work. This included showing pic-
tures for church groups, P. T. A., Boy Scouts,
women's clubs, and other civic groups. The
members of the club also prepared an audio-
visual exhibit for School and Community Night
On April 4.
The purpose of the Proiection Club was three-
fold: to perform service to Ferguson Public
Schools and the community by presenting audio-
visual programs, to secure knowledge of operat-
ing equipment, and to further sociability among
its members. At the end of the year the Projec-
tion Club members were awarded certificates for
school and community service.
Yum Kwang Sook.
The Student Assembly is to be congratulated
on the highly worthwhile project that they in-
troduced to Ferguson High School this past year.
It was through their action that the students of
this school became the foster parents of two war
orphans, Regina Zigmunds and Yum Kwang Sook.
Voluntary contributions were made by each home
room for the financial support of these children,
which was approximately two hundred dollars
a year each.
Twelve-year-old Regina Zigmunds, was born
in Riga, Latvia, and is now living with her mother
and sister, Velta, in a United Nations Refugee Re-
lief Association Camp at Memingen. She is re-
ported to be "a bright, intelligent child, very dili-
gent in school," where her record is above
Seven-year-old Yum Kwang Sook, the other
war orphan, was born in Kand Won Do, Korea,
and now lives in Seoul with her mother, uncle,
and two brothers, ages four and nine. Kwang
ll ll llllllll llllllllll
Sook is considered "a clever little girl, very spir-
ited, who like all Korean children, loves to sing."
Also, the students were able to write letters
to their wards and they received letters in return.
The following is an excerpt from a letter received
by the students from Yum Kwang Soolc:
For the last month l received monthly cash
grant, 4,080 Hwan, 2 cans of butter, 2
boxes of candle, a box of sugar, a pot, a
bucket, and a kettle through the Plan of-
fice, much thankfulness. Right before Christ-
mas I also received cash gift 510 Hwan from
the Plan as Christmas cash gift. This en-
abled me enough to make happy.
Praying God for your good health and
happiness, l will close for now.
Your loving foster child,
Yum Kwang Sook.
"lt's not that you win or lose, but how you play the game."
All coaches dream of producing a winning team, but still greater
is the dream of producing good sportsmanship and fair play.
A coach is happiest when he sees his team go into play as
a well-organized group embodied with worthy ideals of fair play,
cooperation, and teamwork. These essential qualities are not only
necessary for boys' sports but for girls' sports as well. Girls enjoy
competitive sports equally as well as boys.
When a coach feels his team has played a game fairly and to
the best of its ability, his mission has been accomplished whether
the team has lost or won.

ln the T954 season the Ferguson Comets broke
many records. They broke the record for total
points scored and held their opponents to a new
low for the season. lke Blackman tied the in-
dividual scoring record with 36 points for the
season. Although Ferguson did not have their
best season for a won and lost record of five
wins, three losses and one tie, they played the
toughest schedule that any Ferguson team has
played. For the third year in a row the Comets
finished second in the "Little Six Conference,"
losing only to the champion Ladue.
Ferguson's highlights of the year were their
six point loss to U. City who went on to be ranked
in the top ten teams in the state by the AP and
UP poles and their one-sided victories over Wells-
ton and St. Charles.

PEP CLUB OFFICERS
President Susan Bindbeutel
Vice-President Maryann Sheridan
Secretary Betty Ruff
Treasurer Florence Schweizer
The main purpose of the Pep Club was to en-
courage school spirit by supporting the football
and basketball teams at all home and away
games. Sponsored by Miss Regina Jersewiak,
Pep Club meetings began early in the school
year during which officers were elected, pep
assemblies were planned, and ideas were formed
for the annual Pep Club Dance. The dance was
held on the evening of November 19, and en-
tertained an interplanetary theme, "Out of This
World." The stduents who attended the dance
entered another world when they stepped into
the gymnasium which had been skillfully trans-
formed by the decorative use of flying saucers
and other imaginative characters from outer
Pep Assemblies were held at the start and
close of the football and basketball seasons in
order to encourage a big turn-out at the games.
These assemblies were especially spirited due
to the large number of students now attending
Ferguson High School and the energetic enthu-
siasm of the cheerleaders.
To become a cheerleader was the greatest
ambition of the members of the Pep Club. In
order to be eligible for the cheerleading try-
outs, members had to obtain a certain number
of points by attending as many games as pos-
sible. Last spring cheerleaders were selected
from the Pep Club by the entire student body.
The cheerleaders chose Maryann Sheridan to be

At the end of the i954-55 season, the Ferguson
Comets posted a season's record of thirteen vic-
tories and eleven defeats. This was the first
time in several years that the Comets have posted
a mark above .500. To top off the season the
team came up with a fourth place trophy in the
Suburban League Tournament held at Webster
The Comets played some very exciting games
and showed spirit and the will to win in all their
games. Ferguson was undefeated in their first
seven games and after losing seven of their next
eight games, the Comets finished strong by win-
ning five of their last nine games in the Suburban
The highlights of the season were the Comet's
defeat of Clayton in the Suburban League Tour-
nament and knocking Brentwood out of their
chance for the league championship.
At the start of the season, Ned Lips was elected
captain for the season. At the close of the sea-
son, Gordon Biermann was given Honorable
Mention for the All-District by the Globe-Demo-
crat and Post-Dispatch and Gary Thompson re-

With ten lettermen returning, Coach Burgess
did field a very successful team for the 1955
season. Seven of the returning lettermen were
seniors with three years experience and the
other three iuniors and sophomores.
Fifteen games and the state tournament were
scheduled this year, with eleven being in the
Suburban League. This was Ferguson's fourth
year in the Suburban League. Before the season
started the Comets played three non-league
games to warm up for the season.
The Comets had solid infield strength with a
letterman returning at every position along with
three pitchers and outfielders. That left only one
outfield post to be filled for the coming season.
The team began practice early in March and fin-
ished late in May. That early practice helped
make Coach Burgess' promise of a high finish
This was the first year that a junior varsity
team existed at Ferguson. lt consisted of the

Track is a sport which develops the individual
both as a person and as a member of a well-
organized team. This year there was a good
turn-out ot seven returning lettermen, many un-
derclassmen, and some former squad-members.
The Ferguson High School Track team, under
the direction of Mr. Merrill McDaniels, Mr. Bob
Johnson, and Mr. Charles Winscott, participated
in the Little Six Invitational Tournament and the
University City Invitational Tournament.
The Meets were divided into three levels ot
competitionethe senior division for boys over
sixteen and one-half, the iunior division for boys
under sixteen and one-half, and the freshman di-
vision composed entirely of freshmen. This di-
vision of the boys gave the younger ones a
chance to compete with other students ot their
own age and abilities.
The senior division featured the l2O yard high
hurdles, 100 yard dash, mile run, 880 yard re-
lay, 440 yard dash, l80 yard low hurles, 220
yard dash, mile relay, shot put, pole vault, broad
jump, discus throw, and high jump.

Under the leadership of Mrs. Jane Dieselhorst,
Miss Lorraine Mohrman, and Mrs. Marie Cleary,
the Girls' Athletic Association enioyed an event-
ful year of basketball, softball, volleyball, and
tennis. The purpose of this organization is to
give all girls an opportunity to participate in
sports and to promote good sportsmanship.
This year the social committee planned and
directed the annual G.A.A. Dance with the
theme, "Fantasia." According to custom, the girls
asked the boys to this dance. Traditionally, the
corsages which the girls make for the boys are
iudged and prizes are awarded to the three which
appear the most unique. This year, due to in-
climate weather, on March 25, the dance had to
be postponed, and therefore this feature of the
dance was eliminated. This, however, did not
dampen the spirits of the students who attended
the dance on the following Monday afternoon,
and Bob Tippett was heartily welcomed into the
G.A.A. as an honorary member.
The ambition of every member of the G.A.A.
was to earn her letter. TOO points must have
been earned in one year in order to have re-
ceived this coveted award. A girl who earned
IOO points for the second time was awarded a
chevron, and anyone who earned 200 points in
one year was awarded a star. Points were earned
in gym classes and for athletic achievements dur-
ing G.A.A. games. It was the task of the point
committee to record all points earned by each
girl during the year and then to compile them
for the letter awards.

After an exciting season the iuniors
took the championship by playing off a
three-way tie among the senior, iunior,
and sophomore classes, for first place.
The sophomores placed second, the sen-
ior team third, and the freshman, fourth.
A Hodge Podge League consisting of
three teams was formed of girls who
did not make the class teams. They
had their own tournament of after-school
contests and the winners of this league

gan after Christmas under the manage-
ment of Carolyn Griffith.
On February 12, the class teams went
to University City for the annual Play-
day. This is the only opportunity the
teams have to play other schools. The
freshman team was the only one of the
four to claim victory, which they did by
defeating Maryland Heights. But the
fun and experience gained from playing
against other teams was quite worth-
The seniors captured the championship
by defeating the iuniors in a game held
the night of March 4, preceding the B-
Team - Faculty Game. In after school con-
tests the sophomores won second place,

ln March the G.A.A, Volleyball tour-
nament began under the direction ot
Janet Burns, Volleyball Manager. A new
system was initiated tor choosing the
captains of the learns. Two co-captains
were placed in charge ot each class group
and atter the teams were selected, they
in turn selected their captains. The mem-
bers ot each team were picked up by a
vote of the three sponsors, the G.A.A.
president, the manager ot the sport, and
the team co-captains. Little League teams
were also formed from the girls who
did not make the class teams.
The volleyball little league, known as
the Crazy-Mixed Up League, consisted of
three teams with highly irregular titles:
the Curly Mops, the Cryptic Mob, and
the Crummy Mummies.

Each grade period thirteen girls were
chosen by the physical education instruc-
tors to become members of the T-13.
After a girl had been on T-l 3 three times,
she became a permanent member and
was allowed to wear the insignia on her
gym shorts. A girl must, though, be en-
rolled in a gym class each year to re-
tain this honor. T-l3 members are out-
standing gym students and high in lead-
ership and cooperation.
In each field of team sports a G.A.A.
all-star team was selected, which was
composed of thirteen members. Girls
were chosen for their outstanding ability
in that particular sport. The three spon-
sors, the president, the manager, and the
four team captains chose each team.
They had to be a member of a class
team, however, to be eligible for this
honor. Membership on an all-star team
counted ten points toward a letter.

HODGE PODGE SOFTBALL
The Hodge Podge League was made
up of three teams: the Happy-Polka Dots,
winners of the league, the Hodey Pokeys,
and the Horse Powers. The names of the
little league teams were derived from
the league name itself. All the names
of the teams started with the same be-
ginning letters as the league titlefH.P.
They also chose outfits which corres-
ponded to their team name and which
would distinguish them from the other

A basketball intramural tournament
was held for those boys not participating
in interscholastic basketball, but still
wanted to take an active part in the
sport. Six teams were organized and
played every Wednesday night, At the
end of the tournament the winning team
played an all-star team chosen from all
of the losing teams. This year the intra-
mural winner won the game.

LITTLE SHOTS BASKETBALL
Four basketball teams composed the
Little Shot League. The Little Squeaks,
the Lady Shmoos, the Licketty Splits, and
the Lazy Susans. The Little Squeaks,
were readily discerned by the replicas
of mice on the backs of their shirts. The
outfits of the Lazy Susans and the Lady
Shmoos also provided interest, the Lazy
Susans with imitation "black-eyed susans"
attached to their shirts and the Lady
Shmoos with "shmoos" on the front of
