Mr. Lander Van Gundy - Owner and Manager of the Van Gundy Insur- ance Agency. The Board of Education is the policy making body of the school district. Its members are elected by the people of District 348 for terms of three years each. The president and secretary are elected by the members for terms of one year each. The Board of Education derives its powers from the State Legis- lature. It is empowered to handle the business of the local school dis- trict in such matters as levying taxes, approving the budget, em- ploying teachers, buying supplies, etc. All general policies for the op- eration of the school must come from the Board of Education. Regular monthly meetings are held by the Board at which time bills are allowed and all problems pertaining to the school are thor- oughly discussed. The regular meeting of the N. C. H. S. Board of Education is held the second Monday of each month. Special meetings may be called by the pres- ident at any time. The men who serve on our Board render valuable service to our com- munity, devoting much time and effort to the work of the school, all without pay of any kind. Nor- mal Community High School is fortunate in having such men will- ing to accept such civic responsi- bility. f If 5 ,WV il A Q . ,, i y',ffflf'i Will .K S1jJX,MJnzdJi?, N lffvl-MY' nl-'t 'pllf llmlliailiilll f if 5--'-' For their understanding Ways and helpful apprecia- tion, for their Wise advice in the time when We need it most- we, the Staff, respectively dedicate this, the thirteenth volume of the REVERIE, to our parents. .X P6 f Aiillllllgllilil Supermtendent of K Principal of High Schools School MR.

On September 3, 1946, seventy-five grown-up seniors rushed importantly into Normal Community High School, impatient and perhaps a little sorry, too, to begin the last year of their high school career. After renewing acquaintances with our friends and teachers, our first move was to hold a class meeting and elect officers. Emerging victoriously were George Zook as president, George Hinshaw, vice-presi- dent, and Keith Irons, secretary-treasurer. Our class sponsor was Mr. Masters. Miss Forsythe, Miss Brown, Mr. Middleton, and Mr. Miller assisted him. After class elections and opening day assignments, we jumped right into numer- ous activities without even a moment's hesitation. Members of our class were active in band, chorus, athletics and "N" club, F. F. A., F. H. A., I. A. T. A., Science Club, Dramatics and National Thespians, Reverie and Inlcspot staffs, Student Coun- cil, and National Honor Society. A stunt night was held to start the Homecoming festivities. Each class entered an original skit. Mary Jane Hinshaw, and Lois McKinney wrote a phantasy in rhyme, and the seniors came out victorious, winning first place and gaining possession of the Stunt Night trophy for a year. This year it was our turn to sponsor the Home- coming Dance. Working hard at the beginning of the year by selling candy, ice cream, and soft drinks at the football games, we finally obtained enough money to finance the dance. Joan Hinkle was crowned queen. Since we had an over-abundance of money in our treasury as a result of the Home- coming dance, we decided to have an informal senior banquet. The event was held May 9, at the Rogers Hotel. This year we tried something different in the way of commencement. We gave the entire commencement program ourselves. Instead of having the traditional guest speaker, six speakers were chosen from the senior class. Musical selections between the speeches featured only members of the graduating class. And now we have come to the days of parting-the end of our high school ca- reer. In our minds are memories of the friends we have made and of the happy days we have spent in the classroom, at athletic events, at parties, and of everything we have participated in at N. C. H. S. Each of us will follow his own way and try to be a credit to those who have guided us through our four years of high school ac- tivities. To our Alma Mater, our friends, and our teachers, we say, "Good luck, and farewell." ' 11' 3 it FIRST Row LEFT T0 RIGHT: Mr. Legg, R. Rader, H. Beverage, R. Bigger, W. Rafferty, P. Cox, B.

JHNEUHS This year eighty-six of us returned as juniors, starting the year energetically as upperclassmen by electing as our leaders Bill Linden, president, Jane Callahan, vice-president, Marilyn Tate, sec- retary, and Lois Klump, reporter. Our able sponsors were Mr. Legg, Mr. Diveley, Miss Hoose, Mrs. Galbreath, and Miss Springer. Representatives on the Student Council were Margaret Brown, Varda Warren, Jean Ann Kewley, Louis Siebert, Bill Linden, and Milton Olson. In November we sponsored a very successful all school party, using as the theme a gypsy camp. In an effort to raise money for the Junior-Senior Prom, we sponsored a Stunt Night on the Thursday night before Homecoming. In collaboration with the "N" Club, we industriously sold candy and soft drinks at all our football and basketball games. The carnival was another project undertaken by us to increase our funds. The General Prom Committee was kept busy making preparation for "the bigger and better than ever before" Prom. Those serving on this committee were Dick Britt, Margaret Brown, Marvin Dunn, Marjorie Gates, Bill Linden, Jean Ochs, Melvin Scarberry, Marilyn Tate, Sally Veatch, Varda Warren, Cliff Wilcox, Jeannine White, and Lois Klump. We have also been well represented in the athletic department, the music department, the dra- matics department, the Inlcspot Staff, the Reverfie Staff, and the Honor Society. With the able as- sistance of two Juniors, the cheerleaders also did a commendable job. We now eagerly await the coming year when we shall return again as seniors. M Q . 1 2 I K .L I .

Leading them were Jean Plumb as president, Martha Jacobus, vice-president, and Alice Jayne Casebeer, secretary-treasurer. September 3, 1946, saw the return of ninety-seven sophomores, ready and willing to make life miserable for the incoming freshmen. Getting right down to business, we elected Ray Gehrt as our new president, Hewitt Hafer, vice-president, and Floyd McKinney, secretary- treasurer. When Floyd moved away, Patricia McBurney replaced him as secretary-treasurer. These officers, with the able help of our sponsors, Miss Bopp, Mr. Sharp, Mr. Neuman, Mr. Dotlich, and later Mr. Harris, led us through a successful year. Our more dramatic members displayed talent in the All-School Play, "The Doctor Has A Daughter." About half the cast was composed of sophomores. H, In athletics several of the boys made the Varsity in either football or basketball. All did a good job. It's easy to see that we have many future athletics in our class. We are proud to claim ten members of the Honor Society and five members of the Thespians. And what would the band and chorus do without our support? The sophomore class of 1946-47 has been a useful and happy bunch. We are all looking for- ward to next year when we shall return as juniors. X x 55 s s s Q A E Q 3 Q 2 1 33 Q FIRST Row: M. Boggs, B.

After all had become acquainted, class elections were held. The victors were Ray Larkin, president, Sheldon Stark, vice-president, and Mina Mayes, secretary. Mr. Bishop assisted by Miss Donham, Miss Mathew, and Mr. Kuster became our sponsors. In football the following boys participated: Paul Heller, Bob Caldwell, John Draper, Harlan Smith, Bob Thorpe, Don Rynell, Clarence Coon, Wallace Denzer, and Winford McElroy. These boys have shown great possibilities for the future. In basketball we were represented on the junior varsity by Harlan Smith, and Clarence Coon. The musically inclined students of the freshman class who played in the band were Joyce Abbey, Norma Patton, Louise Raydon, Romaine Zehr, Bess Wilfong, Paul Heller, Bob Caldwell, Winford McElroy, Kenneth Reeser, Willis Frink,, Eldon Smith, Don Smith, Don Nenne, and Bob Thorpe. Ethelyn Rodgers represented the freshman class on the Pep committee. Shirley Gehrt, our only freshman representative. did a very good job as cheerleader this year. Some of our dramatically inclined people were Ruth Cates, Shirley Gehrt, Ethelyn Rodgers, Joyce Abbey, Marilyn Byerly, Carl Black, Ray Larkin, and Harlan Smith who were in the Fresh- man stunt. In the one act plays given in March were Joyce Abbey, Bob Caldwell, Bob Thorpe, Marilyn Byerly, and Mina Mayes. We now conclude this history of the freshman class as we turn our thoughts to next year when we will become sophomores. i gf .1 sf . '- ' E Q it Q S 3 f S E. E FIRST Row LEFT T0 RIGHT: A. Cope, J.

We also sponsored the spring play. Another of our under- takings was to publish a Thespian News-Letter to the alumni of our society.

Who can forget our first out-of-town trip since the war when Cox just barely arrived in Morris as the band was starting onto the field for its half-time performance! Embarrassing moments include the time the collection plate went past all of us at the Thanksgiving service and the time Mr. Miller said to a strange man, "Are you from the circus ?" Embarrassed also were we when we blew into Anchor on the breath of a cold north wind, and later in the evening Mr. Sharp blew in on the same wind bringing the music we had forgotten. The Anchor people really appreciated us and Jack, who just couldn't stop. The department for this year will never be forgotten because we did everything possible to make a dollar for our band uniforms which we finally got. Performances for this year: Band: P. T. A., assembly program, winter and spring concerts, the circus, Anchor, Commence- ment, and all basketball games. Chorus: Union Thanksgiving Day Services, the winter and Spring concerts, and Baccalaureate. Girls' Ensemble: Radio, Masonic Temple, and P. T. A. Programs.

EEEKHEZL The 1946-47 Council under the leadership of Allan Allers has had a busy, interesting year. Among its various projects were these high lights: The Torch, with Chuck Geshiwlm as editor, Don Rynell and Delmar Hunter helped the school's safety program, Donna Adams led the Danc- ing Committee, the Council helped raise part of the money for the new school flag, several parties were sponsored by the Council, our corridors have shown a big improvement since the Noon Hour Committee with Charles Cox as chairman, Louis Siebert's Lost and Found Department returned many valued articles, all organizations were issued charters, the Calendar Committee grew into a really functioning body, all art work was handled by Varda Belle Warren's Art Com- mittee. Cox, P. Bates, B. Zehr, This year the N. C. H. S. Council became a member of the Illinois Association of Student Councils. In order that the new president for 1947-48 might attend the State Meeting, an elec- P 9 F0"Y""' tion was held in March at which Louis Siebert was elected. The State Convention was held at the Hotel Sherman in Chicago this year. Delegates attending for the Council were Allen Allers, Louis Siebert, Paul Bates and Mr. Diveley. Paul represented us on one of the convention panels. FRONT Row: Left to Right, I. Warren, E. Schneider, J. Buth, J. Hinshaw, J. Peterson, M. Carter, N. Arends, J. Plumb, B. Clesson, S. Veatch, A.

Twice a year outstanding students are elected by the faculty on the basis of leadership, scholarship, service, and character. Election into the Junior Society does not, however, insure election into the Senior Society. The officers chosen for the past year were Byron Zehr, President, Waunita Klump, Vice- president and Student Council Representative, Evelyn Schneider, Secretaryg Many Ann Thorpe, Treasurer. The N. C. H. S. Chapter of Honor Society has two yearly social events. Near the end of the first semester we entertain all members of the Honor Society and new initiates at an in- formal partyg then in the spring we have a joint banquet with the University High School stu- dents. This year we'were their guest and we enjoyed their hospitality. SXQEENEE BLUE 'X A Y E K i fu . E. 1 rzuiciuiu Q ' , f 5 x -M ig Q 5 A. S .3 3 - SEATED LEFT T0 RIGHT: Mr. Legg, Mr. Chiddix, P.

FUTURE HHMEMAKEHS UF AMEEEEEA mote the appreciation of the joys and satisfactions of homemaking and to further an interest in home economics. The members of this organization are required to be enrolled in a home eco- nomics course or to have completed one year of high school home economics training. Some of the outstanding activities during the year have included a candle light initiation cere- mony, a trip to Farm and Home Week at Champaign, preparation and service of a dinner honoring the girls' parents, and a tea and style show for the public. The F. H. A. also co-operated with the F. F. A. in giving the February P. T. A. program and the two groups had exchange parties. A number of girls took part in discussion groups at the Sectional Rally and also had charge of recreation for members of chapters from McLean, Wood- ford, and Livingston Counties. One member from the Chapter will be sent to the leadership train- ing camp at East Bay in August. g X5 igqglkim wf .WMM wwwwme FIRST ROW. Left to Right: C. Black, K. Reeser, Mr. Kuster, Sponsor, J.

RRRRRR RRRMRRR RR ARIRRIIRR The Future Farmers of America is a national organization of students interested in vocational education in agriculture. The purpose is to strengthen the confidence of the farm boy in himself and his work, to develop usual leadership and to create an interest in farming as an occupation. The organization has four grades of membership, based upon achievement. The grades are: first, Green Hands, second, Future Farmers, third, State Farmersg fourth, American Farmers. Not more than three per-cent of the boys in the state studying agriculture may achieve the third degree, and only those who have received it may achieve the American Farmer degree. We are proud of the fact that Paul Bates and Robert Gillis have received the State Farmers degree. Robert Gillis received the American Farmers degree. Four of our officers attended the National F. F. A. convention at Kansas City last fall. The officers attending were George Hinshaw, Julius Miller, Allan Allers, and Melvin Scarberryq It was a colorful affair with more than 9,000 boys attending the convention from every state in the Union and also from Hawaii and Puerto Rico. 5.A.ii'.A SEATED LEFT T0 RIGI-IT: G.

ESHIIQIIDISTHKAIL ARTS THAEE AEAEEMY The Industrial Arts and Trades Academy got off to a good start at their first meeting by electing officers. Kay Ward did a very capable job of presiding over the club for the year. Dick Warner was vice-president, Roger Jones, secretary, and George Mayes, treasurer. Soon after the election of officers, the first initiation was held to procure new members. The "Industrial- ists" carried on many activities during the year, which included steak fries, a basketball tourna- ment, building projects, speakers, and contests against other schools. At one of the night meetings, Mr. Davidson gave a very interesting speech and demonstrations on toys. His demonstration con- sisted of many educational scale building models, cars, and motors. Everyone enjoyed this very much. His group of equipment came from Nuremberg, Germany. Afterwards, the "Industrialists" played a basketball game with Bloomington High School's Craftsmen Club. The "Industrialists" won 45 to 18. The Industrial Arts boys can be recognized by the black and white "I" which they wear so proudly on the shoulder of their sweaters. The executive board is very proud of its members, and we hope that next year will be another successful year for the I. A. T. A. Q51 f N r FIRST Row, LEFT TO RIGHT: W. McElroy, K. Reeser, D. Ochs, H.

"Nl" ELEM The "N" Club of Normal Community High School has enjoyed its second year of activity since its organization in November of 1945. The members holding office for the year are Chuck Geshiwlm, presidentg George Hinshaw, vice president, and Charles Cox, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Dotlich, Mr. Legg, and Mr. Neuman acted as the club's sponsors. To become a member in the organization one must be a student of N. C. H. S. who has earned one or more varsity letters. Managers are required to earn two letters in service. The organization was very active this year. They sold refreshments at basketball games and sponsored a Donkey Basketball game and an interclass basketball tournament. Proceeds from these events were used to buy football equipment and to sponsor a trip to see a major league baseball game in St. Louis. The purpose of the "N" Club is to foster athletics and to promote greater appreciation foi the letter awards of N. C. H. S.

FUIEJT ALL When the 1946 football season rolled around, the prospects weren't so bright, for most of the boys were green. As it turned out, we ran up against some very tough teams, including High's undefeated eleven. The season wasn't a very good one, but there are hopes for a better one U. next year. The results of the games are as follows: Normal 6 Gridley 20 Normal' 12 U. High 32 Normal 28 Fairbury 0 Normal 6 Trinity 0 Normal 14 Morris 0 Normal 13 Dwight 14 Normal 7 Pontiac 35 Normal 0 B. H. S. 26 i The lettermen who are graduating this year are Zehr, Hinshaw, Zook, Stephens, Irons, Gesh wlm, and Bates. Lettermen returning to form the nucleus of next year's team are Bridgewater, Linden, Gehrt, Siebert, Thompson, Byerly, Schad, and Britt. The managers who received letters are Chapman, Inman, and Scott. Finsr Row, LEFT 'ro RIGHT: J. Buerkett, K. Irons, H. Smith, R. Gehrt, J. Schad, K. Ward iCaptainJ, B. Zehr B Linden, D. Bridgwater, J.

EAEKET ALL Prospects weren't very bright for the '46-'47 season with only two lettermen returning from last year's squad. They were Kay Ward and Byron Zehr. From the boys on the freshman- sopho- more squad, Coach Dotlich picked out a few of the better looking prospects and proceeded to make a team out of them. When the playing season finally got under way the first squad had already been made up. It consisted of Kay Ward, Captain, Byron Zehr, Jack Buerkett, Jerry Schad, Bill Linden, Dave Bridgwater, Ray Gehrt, Jack McQueen, Harlan Smith, and Keith Irons. The team started off rather slowly at the beginning for lack of experience, but progressed rap- idly. At the time of the Paris Tournament they had really started rolling, and there they won their first tournament game, but lost their second one to a powerful Danville quintet. The boys had many thrilling games throughout the season, and kept the crowds on their feet to the last minute, but they just cou1dn't seem to come out on top very often. Though the schedule for this year shows very few wins it did a lot toward developing the boys for next year, so watch out for an improved "Ironmen" club next season, for seven of the first ten varsity boys will be back. l S d C C x A Allers J McQueen W Byerly SITTING, LEFT T0 RIGHT: H.
