' J enior Class History In September, 1943, the curtain rose on a drama of four acts when one hundred and four slightly bewildered "freshies" entered into an active high school career. Dick Britt, president, Eugene Miller, vice president, and Betty Brown, secretary, were the principal characters in Act One. The male members of the cast stole the show in Act Two. They were Virgil Cates, president, Bill Linden, vice president, and Marvin Dunn, secretary. Our one big event of the year was the party at which we entertained the freshmen. Bill Linden, for his portrayal as president in Act Three, deserves a word of praise. Helping him fulfill his executive duties were Jane Callahan and Marilyn Tate. Milton Olson acted as J ane's stand-in in the second scene. Talent was displayed in all fields this year from sports to art. To raise the necessary funds to support "the best prom ever," we inaugurated a stunt show the night before homecoming and a penny carnival in the spring. Marjorie Gates reigned as queen of Shangri La, the theme of the prom. Act Four, when the rewards of four years' labor were reaped, we were ably piloted by Clifford Wilcox, president, Marjorie Gates, vice president, Ann Birky, secretary, and Jean Ann Kewley, treasurer. Our first undertaking of the year was the homecoming dance, at which Lougean Cutter was crowned queen. Bill Linden and Walter Byerly acted as co-captains of a successful football team. Editing The Reverie and Inkspot re- spectively were Margaret Brown and Lois Klump. The D.A.R. good citizenship award was won by Marilyn Tate. Louis Siebert wielded the gavel at Student Council meetings. Bob Thompson was voted by the members of the football squad as the ideal football participant.This is the first year such an award has been given. Many of the prom- inent clubs have had seniors as their leaders. Some of these are the "N" Club, Walter Byerly, the Science Club, Bob Lesher, the Dramatics Club and Thespians, Marilyn Tate, I.A.T.A., Dave Bridgwater, F.T.A., Lois Klump, the Latin Club, Ruth Leary, the Honor Society, Milton Olson. Jim Cloyd was president of the Band Organization, Jean Ann Kewley, Girls' Chorus, and Jack McQueen, Boys' Chorus. At Commencement Minnie Carter, Walter' Byerly, Jean Ann Kewley, Sue Williams, Joyce Mann, Margaret Brown, Dick Britt, and Marilyn Tate were the speakers for the class. Acts Three and Four were ably directed by Mr. Legg, Miss Springer, Mr. Diveley, and Miss 'I-loose. As the curtain draws to a close on an eventful drama of four years that will influ- ence the lives of the participants forever, the sentimental strains of "Pomp and Cir- cumstance" are heard from the orchestra pit. We, the class of 1948, take our departure with the hope that the audience will always be as receptive as this one has been. enior Prophecy Listen well, Class of 1948. Give heed to these words of mystic wisdom as the future is revealed. lMadame See-All gazes into her crystal ball, and the mists begin to break away.J What's this I see? A big building rising out of the heart of the city. The sign on it reads "Mercy Hospital." Here come four doctors down the steps. It looks like Jerry Schad, Bob Lesher, Bill Linden, and Cliff Wilcox. Behind them are six nurses, who appear to be Marilyn Tate, Jeannine White, Mary Lou Wiese, Donna Mae Thoresen, Norma Shumaker, and Joyce Peterson. Here come the proud new mama and papa, Margy Wagner and Dick Britt, with their third set of triplets. The hospital fades away and another edifice appears which looks like an office building. As we look deeper into the crystal ball, we see Sue Williams sitting behind a buyer's desk with Margaret Brown as her private secretary. Peeping into the outer office, we see a number of our friends. There's Carolyn Nelson, Joyce Mann, Donna Marsh, Marilyn Mears, Josephine Pickett, and Susan Pfeifer. In the bookkeeping de- partment we find Ann Birky, Lois Hargis, Marjorie Gates, and Betty Clesson, head bookkeepers. Here is a door which reads "Eugene Miller, General Manager, Assist- aI1tS, Gerald Ll1Sh0I', William Llpllt, Milt0I1 Olson and Richard Pasley." There is still another door. "Andrew C. Harris, Business Manager." As we go to the next floor, we see a newspaper office, "The Inky Star." The door bears some interesting names. "Lois Klump, Editor in Chief, Ronald Smith, Assistant Editor, and Journalists, Sally Veatch, Janie Callahan, Ruth Hargis, Phyllis Stielow, and Alyce Daley." This building soon fades, and we see passing in review a number of people. There's Marvin Dunn and his trumpet, a member of Harry Dorsey's Band, Fred Chapman, now manager-of a big football team, Merle Simpson, now a prominent member of a big league baseball team, and Jean Ann Kewley, soon to appear at the piano in Carnegie Hall. Who's this red headed young lady? Why it's Jeannie Ochs, a famous dress de- signer. There is Harriet Hastings, a famous radio singer. Here is a large sign. On it is printed "Buerkett's Better Built Buildings, Jack Buerkett, Owner, Carpenters, Dave Bridgwater, Dick Kirstein, Ivan Kidd, Ray Shirey, Orville Gannaway, Bob Ogden, Bill Rich, Clifford Vanice, and Bill Fletcher." Now another building is coming into view. It looks like a high school. Why, there's Virgil Cates, Principal, Minnie Carter, English teacher, Marilyn Larkin, history teacher, Ruth Leary, Latin teacher, Ruth Hunter, home economics teacher, Jack Mc- Queen, boys' athletic director, Varda Belle Warren, girls' athletic instructor, and Mel- vin Scarberry, Agriculture teacher. Now we see a large modernistic building. There's a sign, Biddle-Burtis, Adver- tising." A glance inside reveals Pat Goodenough, head of the Stenographic Department. Bud Bauman, Walden Crouch, and Jim Cloyd are the business managers. Here are some little buildings set very close together. Ah, they are homes and there is Sharon Malcolm hanging out her washing and Barbara Anderson and Vivian Schultz talking across the yard. Another peep reveals a lot of people we know living in these homes. There's Agnes Daley, and over there is Lougean Cutter, and Kay Beard, Patty Christ, Betty Alsene, Yvonne Hinshaw, Ina Belle Warren, and Roserita Weinheimer. The houses are getting farther and farther apart. I see a man Working out in the fields. Why it's Richard lRader. And over there is Wesley Rafferty, there's Louis Sie- bert, too, and Russell Bigger, Harold Beverage, Walter Byerly, Roy Sparks, and Bob Thompson. Alas! the crystal ball is beginning to become cloudy again. The many scenes have faded out of sight, and Madame See-All passes her hand across the top of the ball. Her prophecy is finished.

The Welfare Committee, also newly organized, was headed by Al Ehlers. This committee handled several all-school drives, among which were sales of Christmas Seals, March of Dimes, and "CARE" packages for European relief. Bob Lesher's Concession Committee assigned to the organiza- tons of the school the selling rights of candy and pop. Under Winford McElroy's leadership the Building and Grounds Committee helped the school in replacing the shrubbery and in obtaining new school flags. This year the Assembly Committee inaugurated the idea of class assemblies. The Torch, a handbook, was published and given to the students of N. C. H. S. A radio program over W.J.B.C. was given. The Council held a magazine sales campaign and with the help of the Board of Education purchased a portable projector for the school. The first all-school party of the year was sponsored by the council. The Dance Committee also sponsored several all-school dime dances and an orchestra dance in the fall. The Council wishes to express its appreciation to the faculty for its splendid cooperation, especially to Miss Hoose, Mr. Masters, Miss Bopp, Mr. Legg, Miss Garihee, Miss Springer, Mr. Kuster, Mr. Sharp, and Mr. Diveley. ffm-v Ray Gehrt, Bill Linden, Mr. Masters, Sue Williams, Louis Siebert. fuclenf Court The Student Court, newest of the Normal High organizations, was started early in the fall by the Student Council, who felt that our students were 'capable of assuming"the respon- sibility of passing judgment on their fellow students. The court, sponsored by H. E. Masters who served on a military court while in the Army, consisted of twelve members who try the students according to their misdemeanors. Bill Linden, Court Chairman, Louis Siebert, Student Council Presidentg Sue Williamsg and Ray Gehrt are the four permanent members. One new member, starting with a freshman, is chosen each week to replace an old one. In this way there will always be eleven experi- enced members on the court. Penalties for guilt range from a few hours in the detention room to recommendation to the principal for suspension from school. The court has done many things for the betterment of student conduct.

Future teachers learn facts and gain opportunities in this world-wide profession. Young people who decide to be teachers early in life are much more likely to make good teachers than those who merely drift into the profession by accident. The Margaret H. J. Lampe F. T. A. was organized with twenty charter members. The I. S. N. U. chapter performed the initiation rites, December 10. After the initiation, a gift exchange took place followed by refreshments. Under the guidance of Miss Mathew, the club made a splendid start. One of the highlights of our club meetings was on January 21 when Mr. Starke spoke to us on the present advantages and disadvantages of teaching. The Feb- ruary program was in charge of a panel from the McMurray chapter of I. S. N. U. The dis- cussion was "Teaching as a Profession." On February 9 several members attended the formal birthday dinner given by the McMurray chapter of Illinois State Normal University. "The teacher is a builder: he works with the higher and finer 'values of civilization." ! H 0 SEATED: Miss Brown, C. Moore, R. Leary, P. Guinnee, H. Hafer. FIRST ROW: J. Galbreath, B. Clesson, J.

The purpose of the club is to acquaint students with Roman private lives. Ruth Leary was elected president, Hewitt Hafer, vice-president, Connie Moore, secretary, Pat Guinnee, treas- urer. Miss Brown is the adviser. The name of the club is the S. P. Q. R. which means Senatus Populusque Romanus. The officers of the club are addressed by their Roman names-the president, Consul, the vice- president, Aedileg the treasurer, Questorg and the secretary, Censor. The constitution for the S. P. Q. R. or Roman Republic consists of nine articles. Article seven claims the Vestals Virgin's Lamp as our insignia and the Roman Purple as our color. A tax of twenty-five cents per year is required of each member. Failure to pay this tax re- sults in exile from the club. The main event of the year held in the month of April was a Latin Banquet. lVlcfrb"".1 of Latin I class took the part of slaves. The meetings were held the fourth Wednesday of the month. During this time discussions are held concerning the Roman private life, the gods and goddesses, Roman holidays, Roman clothing, laws, and custom. By understanding and appreciating the loyalties and ethics of the past, we believe that our club helps us to become better American citizens. 3 SEATED: H. Hafer, B. Lesher, Mr. Chiddix. FIRST ROW: J.

Science The Science Club began its activities this year by electing Bob Lesher, president, Al Ehlers, vice-president, Marilyn Larkin, secretary, and Hewitt Hafer, treasurer with Mr. Chiddix, Mr. Diveley, and Mr. Legg as sponsors. The membership of one hundred and fifty is the largest in our club history. The aim of our organization is to develop a real apprecia- tion and understanding of the field of science. Programs were given by our students and outside speakers. Demonstrations were given, some of which were on corpuscle counting, dust explosion and spontaneous combustion. Mr. Biasi gave a talk on sulfur and penicillin, and Miss Mildred Lierman spoke on "America's Worst Enemy, Cancer." In May we took our annual field trip. L53 4' 1 fi Q ,L Q. E" 911 5 '- ,.

Barr Industrial Arts ana, Tracie Academy The Industrial Arts and Trades Academy has been running very smoothly under the leadership of our presiding officer, David Bridgwater. He has been assisted by Milton Olson, Treasurer. The purpose of the I. A. T. A. is to stimulate a high class of workmanship and to assist in guiding its members into vocations that best suit their needs, interests, and op- portunities. It is also the purpose of this organization to promote improvements in the school's industrial education studies and at the same to promote a high degree of scholarship and interest in recreational activities. To become a member, a student must be enrolled in his second semester's course in some area of industrial education. A "B" average must be attained to become a member and must be maintained for active membership. A member must also earn an average of three credits per year. The "Industrialists" carry on many activities during the year which include building projects, the Weiner roast, basketball games. The club made lamps, bracelets, and other things in order to raise money for a field trip to the Tucker Automobile Factory in Chicago. We of the executive board are proud of the active members. Next year promises to be another successful year for the I. A. T. A. under the capable leadership of Mr. Sharp and Mr. Middleton.

Pickett Future armers of America The Future Farmers of America is a national organization commonly known as the F. F. A. The purpose of this organization is to develop higher ideals and standards for the young American farmer. The four degrees of membership based upon achievement are Green Hand, Chapter Farmer, State Farmer, and American Farmer, which is the highest degree. Only one boy in every one thousand receives this honor. While attending the National F. F. A. convention and the American Royal Livestock Exposition held in Kansas City, four of our officers were privileged to see one of our four American Farmers receive this honor. It was bestowed upon Don Hinshaw of the class of '46. The officers this year are Harold Siegworth, president, Melvin Scarberry, vice-president, Richard Radar, secre- tary, Wesley Rafferty, treasurer, Carl Black, reporterg Bob Thompson, watch dogg and Mr. Kuster, adviser. A recreation program consisting of basketball and softball is carried on throughout the year. The annual summer trip for senior boys was an outing at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The usual ice cream feed, with faculty men as guests, was held in March. The organization was well represented in the Sectional F. F. A. Fair held at ElPaso, where the entries received high rating. They also entered judging, speaking and parliamentary procedure contests. Other projects of the club are the sale of rat poison and the distribution of Funk Brothers garden seeds. r 3 SEATED: D.

It deals with the adventures of a Yankee from Connecticut who finds himself thrown back into the middle ages. He cannot believe it at first, thinking he is in an insane asylum. But he is soon convinced that he actually is faced with a death sentence handed down from King Arthur, and his ingenuity comes immediately to the fore. By predicting an eclipse of the sun, he saves his own skin and immediately becomes the idol of the kingdom. His power becomes so great that Merlin, the court magician, plots against him with several others. However, the Yankee builds up a complete twentieth century industry in short order, and keeps the knights completely baffled by his magic. As the story closes, the Connecticut Yankee is reluctant to leave the lovely ladies he has met in the Castle of King Arthur. 1 I I IN Q, k,f,M 9.

Varsity Fooilraii The Normal Ironmen had a fairly successful season, they had three wins and five de- feats. The Homecoming game, which was played with our Corn Belt rivals from Pontiac, proved to be an interesting and exciting one although Pontiac Won by a close score. Even though most of the opponents were tough, the Ironmen gave them all a scrappy game show- ing that they weren't pushovers. Next year there promises to be a great improvement in the team's record with eight re- turning lettermen plus a few outstanding underclassmen. The returning lettermen for next season are D.

After a few weeks of working on plays and fundamentals of football, the fresh- man team had their first taste of competitive football against the Clinton freshmen. The young Ironmen had an easy game. The game between the freshman and sophomore teams was one of the high lights of the season with the sophomores winning. By the end of the season the boys had been molded into a good team.

In the Second Normal Holiday Invitational Tournament, Chenoa, Normal, Dixon, and Bloomington won first round games on New Year's day. In the semi-finals Chenoa beat Normal and Bloomington ousted Dixon for the opportunity to play in the championship game. Normal won over Dixon for the consolation title and Chenoa whipped B. H. S. for the championship. The Ironmen finished their season at the sectional tournament held in Peoria after they had upset the Chenoa Redbirds in the finals of the regional tournament at Chenoa.

Baselva ll The Normal Ironmen launched their 1948 baseball season with Fairbury on the oppo- nent's field. This was an easy game for the Ironmen. They won by a score of 7-3. The Iron- men appear to be much stronger than they have been in the last few years. They have a good pitching staff not counting the experienced infield. They are using the new suits that were purchased last year. The Ironmen of last year had a four wins and two loss record. This year's nine will find only four members, W. Byerly, J. McQueen, B. Biddle and J. Schad missing next year. SCHEDULE April Fairbury May 3 B. H. S. April Wapella May 5 U. High April Eureka May 6 El Paso April Clinton May 8 Atlanta April B. H. S.

Spang, who won fourth in the 220 yard dash was the only member of the track team to place in the meet. Normal held a dual meet with Leroy and won by an easy score. Anderson and Spang were high point men in the meet. The Juniors won by a four point margin over the Seniors in the annual Inter-class meet this year. The first Normal Relay Carnival was held April 24, with over forty schools entering the A and B Classes. A queen and her attendants chosen from all four classes in the school awarded all trophies and medals. As this year's track team has only three returning lettermen from last year's squad, they depended mostly on underclassmen.
