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
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-

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

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.

On September 3, 1945, 113 supposedly green freshmen entered Normal Community High School.
Leading them were Jean Plumb as president, Martha Jacobus, vice-president, and Alice Jayne
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.

In September of 1946, one hundred and three eager and ambitious freshmen received their first
glimpse of Normal Community High School. 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
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.

and Miss Colene Hoose, sponsor. Our first big step was to present the Annual Moon-light Mas-
querade Ball. We entered a one-act play in the sectional speech contest, and were very proud and
happy to walk away with third place. We also sponsored the spring play. Another of our under-
takings was to publish a Thespian News-Letter to the alumni of our society. We held initiation
of the new members and installation of new officers at the end of the school term. With this we
had our banquet and ended another very successfu year of our National Thes 'an Honor Societykff Q

Every member of the music department will remember the school year of 1946-47. 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.
Swing Band: Farm Bureau and assembly programs.

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-
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

The Senior Honor Society for juniors and seniors has fifteen members, while the Junior So-
ciety for freshmen and sophomores is composed of twenty-five members. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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
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.

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.
