Divergences of abilities and in- terests have necessitated the enlargement of the curriculum to include subjects that meet the demands of the majority of stu- dents. A corresponding expan- sion of curricular activities has followed. Despite the addition of new teachers each year, classes have increased in size, but this rapid growth has not lowered the quality of teaching here.

The three hundred and forty-eight stu- dents in this sophomore class, have been especially active in all extra-curricular activities. Many of them were interested tn physical education, and not a few were assets to the musical groups. Academ- ically, these tenth-graders have a record that any class might well envy. Robert Lovell, chosen as representative of the best qualities of the class, was awarded a trip to Ieiferson City. The sponsors, who aided in increasing the good of this class, are Mr. Walter Bergmann, Mr. William Christian, Mrs. Ruby Farmer, Mrs. Mary Ferguson, Mrs. Mary Franklin, Miss Ernestine Long, Miss Mary Pitney, Mrs. Helene Priester, Mr. Lynn Whitworth, and Mr. Arwin lanssen.

Ninth Grade When a student reaches the ninth grade, he is more interested than ever before in his studies. By this time he is beginning to contemplate his future and is more conscientious about what subjects to take. He is able to accept greater responsibilities and is ready to do more specialized work. This year's group of ninth-graders, as a whole, have willingly participated in many activities. The boys were of excep- tional value in athletics and the girls in dancing. They were extremely co- operative and generous in such things as subscribing to the P.T.A., and donating food stuffs to Christmas baskets. An honor roll was started to encourage the students to better their work. This was apparently a good idea for their scholastic record has improved. Because they are the seniors of the Iunior High School, they set an example for the lower classes to follow. For this year's class that was not hard to do, for they were a very dependable group. The sponsors who so ably helped this class to succeed are Mr. Robert Rupp, Miss Helen Wallace, Miss Helene Villard, Mrs. Anita Keaney, Mr. lack Percival, Mr. Charles Koerner, Miss Dorothy Clark, Mr. Iames McClanahan, Miss Martha Tillman.

During his second year in the Iunior High, he knows more about the courses which are offered, and is better able to choose the subjects which he desires to take the next year. These eighth-graders were outstanding in Junior athletics and gave staunch sup- port to the varsity games. They also par- ticipated wholeheartedly in their own after-school games and sports. With train- ing and practice some of them will de- velop into excellent material for varsities. One very commendable action of these students was their willingness to spend long hours in group and individual prac- tice with such musical organizations as the band and orchestra. Possibly this illustrates youth's growing interest in and appreciation of good music. Since the years in the Iunior High School are character-forming years, the sponsors have a tremendous task of start- ing their charges out with high ideals. These sponsors are Miss Bernice Schmidt, Miss Dorothy Rauscher, Mrs. lennie Pun- shon, Mr. Reinhold Press, Miss Marion Musgrave, Mrs. Ruth Shay, Mr. lack Hohreiter, Mr. Edward Haefler, and Mr. l. O. Gillelan. Top Row: I. Davis, Bonney, Fleischauer, Bla Buchmueller, Kahl, Gore, Leonard, Leao Henkel, Calvin, Burnett, Callier, Amol English.

'x r' I Seventh Grade As newcomers to Normandy, the seventh-graders were naturally rather slow in adapting themselves to the pro- cedures and regulations of the Iunior High School. However, after they became accustomed to their classes and clubs, they forgot their shyness and began par- ticipating in as many activities as time would allow. Then, they also began accepting responsibilities as willingly and as ably as though they were senior high students. That an outstanding characteristic of this class is leadership may be verified by their initiative and accomplishments. The seventh grade is composed of three hundred and seventy-three students, who, according to their teachers, are always willing to co-operate to the best of their ability. Having shown that there are some outstanding personalities in the group, these students will undoubtedly develop into a promising senior class. Normandy will some day be proud to have this group of neophytes assume the major activities and responsibilities of the school, and next year we expect great things from this fine class. The sponsors who have greatly aided these students in becoming adjusted so completely are Mrs, Anna Brummett, Mr. Galt Schrader, Miss Louise Schmucker, Mrs. Elizabeth Lashly, Mr. R. R. Eddie- man. and Mrs. Claudine Bock. Page Fifty-four Top Row: Russell, Deitrtch, Hilliker, Bus McCormack, Thompson, Storm, Lov Willman, Maynard, Burgess, Ochman Ladendecker.

By offering numerous College pre- paratory and vocational sub- jects, the departments of Nor- mandy help students adjust themselves for later lite. Education Page Fifty-six Educational Opportunities at Normandy No longer does Normandy High School offer only such college preparatory work as classical languages, literature, and science, but today a student in our sphool has his choice of a variety of courses. Those students who are planning to attend college may still take the academic studies, but, as the enrollment in the public school has grown, an increasing number of stu- dents are interested in subjects that lie outside the old curriculum. Normandy, as a progressive high school, has met this need by an enlargement of its educational opportunities until no matter what the student's chief interest may be he will find ample training in one of the courses offered. Basic training in English, science, and history is still required of the graduate, but a varied range of electives enable the student to choose a general course that fits his particular interests and needs. Probably one of the most important trends growing out of this new interest is the development of extensive work in the Industrial Arts Curriculum. The old-fashioned manual-training has become within itself probably one of the most splendid training grounds for proper ideals and attitudes that the modern school affords. In the process of teaching the skills that naturally are of paramount con- cern in an industrial arts course the teacher finds opportunity to give students practice in forming habits and gaining knowledge that will benefit them in whatever profession or work they choose. Some of the more important of these are a spirit of co-operation that comes from working with others, a well- founded sense of self-reliance and poise, ability to work out and follow a careful procedure, self-mastery which results from forcing oneself to complete any task, and a knowledge of some of the problems involved in being a wise consumer. Page Fifty-seven lndustrial Arts Seventh-grade boys who elect to take work in the lndustrial Arts De- partment are enrolled in Home Me- chanics, a course which deals briefly with electricity, sheet metal, and woodwork. The classes meet two periods each weel: and are so orqan- ized that every boy has an oppor- tunity to spend about one-third of his time in each field. ln all phases of the work direct application is made to experiences and problems with which the boys are familiar and that they are apt to meet in their home life. Opportunities are many for exploration in fields in which the students show special interest. The instructor stresses safety in handling tools and economical use of time and materials. Emphasis is on the development of useful and worthy habits of work rather than the acquisition of advanced skill in any operation. The boy, thus, is layinq a foundation which will help him in any later work to be happy. useful, and successful. I 11n1i4'w'1' in H'uurlu'm'l.'iny1 1lU'wi's Vlvrlilizlyl I'1: Ihr- Nlmrinyx.

S1114 The elective eighth-qrade course in the lnclustrial Arts curriculuin is General Shop, in which boys have an opportunity to continue the type of work they heaan in l-lonie Mef chanics, with advance work in woode working, electricity, and sheet metal. ln each phase the boys learn to use more coinplicated tools and under- take larger projects. For exaniple, while in the seventh grade the stue dent oi electricity is Concerned with hell wiring, in the eighth qrade he studies house wiring and the repair- inq oi electrical motors. lndusirial Arts ln addition to shop iundanientals, manipulative phases ot each subf ject, and skills, boys learn to appre- ciate qood worlcinanship and design, to plan procedure carefully, and to read worlcinq drawings. Wlicvii the eiqhthrqrade boy conipletes General Shop, he has a basic understanding oi the part which industrial arts play in our niodern education, and he knows whether he has the interest and the ability to continue with the lndustrial Arts courses. 4lIlll'Illllfl l'l1lur' Ii'u,1,w, Ilruu' Filing! in livin-ll .llfzlfiliy ll Jilin' Juinl. ,lI1'!11l.

Industrial Arts ln addition to General Shop, the eighth-grade student with an interest in mechanics may enroll in a begin' ning Auto Mechanics class, in which he learns the basic principles of auto- mobile operation. Before the student does any actual mechanical work, he does extensive reference reading and question answering on units prepared to give him necessary basic informa- tion. After this preliminary work, the boy, then, in the shop makes practical application of his theoretical knowl' edge. Auto mechanics is a valuable subject because knowing what makes a car go saves time, money, and dis couraging moments on the highway. Units of actual work in the shop are based on repairs that are frequently necessary for a car-owner to be able to take care of. Learning how to repair inner tubes and take care ot tires, grease cars, change oil, care for the battery and cooling system, check lan belt, and clean spark plugs are only a few of the things that occupy the time of the junior auto mechanics student. Boys who think they might be inter' ested in entering the automotive indus try have an opportunity to investigate and learn about the details of that industry as well as all allied trades. Safety instructions are an important phase of the beginning mechanics course. The teacher tries to make the student safety conscious in the shop and on the highway. I"nlur1' Shop .lIr'11.

P me Y Industrial Arts Boys who found the bench nietal units in early shop courses interesting may enroll in a class given completely to the study of metals and their hand' ling. The purpose of the bench metal class is to give the student a compre- hensive understanding of the funda- niental processes common in metal- working. The student learns to use the simple metal-working tools and to form both hot and cold metal into any desired shape. ln short, he acquires some knowledge of the production, characteristics, and manipulation of the corniiion metals. Many variations of design are sug- gested to the student. He may employ his originality to a great extent, an opportunity which affords him a chance to give expression to his inventive in- terests and to enjoy the thrill of accom- plishment lngenuity and initiative are developed in the exercising of indi- viduality. The course is so arranged that the beginner upon completing his first project will find that he can put the experience thus learned to practical use in the second project, and so on, cuinulatively, throughout the year. Boys who are interested in home craft will find the projects in the bench class of special interest. lt is hoped that the ever-increasing number of pupils will, through the discovery and exchange of ideas, find stimulation to enjoy further creative accomplishment in a useful vocation or relaxing hobby.

Page Sixty-on lndustrial Arts Built on the information and practice gained in the junior auto mechanics class, the senior auto mechanics courses are designed to give the stue dents more detailed knowledge that will be valuable for the future car owners. A few of the boys may be interested in entering one of the me- chanical trades, and the training they receive in these classes is very helpful. However, the material is arranged in such a way that it is useful to anyone. The first semester is devoted entirely to work based on the chassis. Separate units include the differential, the trans- mission, and the braking system. Stu- dents learn the underlying principles of operation in each of these, together with the advantages and disadvantages of the various set-ups. Engine work, operation of the metal lathe, and safety in driving comprise the second semester units. Throughout, the chief aim of the department is to teach the boys how a car operates, how to care for it, and how to make minor repairs and adjustments. Any boy who expects to own a car some time in the future would do well to enroll in Auto Mechanics. A thorough knowledge of the skills taught in this course would do a great deal to improve care of cars and probably to reduce the number of accidents resulting from faulty cars or reckless driving. llvul 'I'rf'uling Jlrtul.

The objectives ot the course are manifold. Some ot the more important ones are to develop tlie students power ot visuatizationg to strengthen his constructive imaginationp to train him in exactness of thought and procedurep to teach him something about reading and writing the language ol industriesg and to give him a concep- tion oi modern commercial drawings, tracings, and blueprints. ln beginning drawing a program is set up to familiarize the students with the fundamentals and guiding princi- ples ot the field. For those who wish to continue their work, the course in mechanical and architectural drawing is ottered. Since technical knowledge is essential it the student is to produce drawings ot acceptable quality, he must learn all the fine points pertaining to the particular type ot drawing he may be doing. The various types ot drawings discussed and executed in the advanced classes range from tree- hand sketching to architectural sym- bols and house plans, giving the stu- dents a thorough training in the under- lying principles ot this line ot worlc. Naturally neatness and accuracy are ot primary importance in this work. f'll1'4'li'lll!l thc' I"iIr' f'4llIilH'l.

This course, which is commonly known as a hand tool course, teaches the student proper techniques in work- ing with wood. These skills are those which will be the most useful to him in simple constructions and those which the student will need in the beginning of the advanced wood- working course. Use ot the various machines and execution of projects are arranged on a progressive basis. The most prominent and simplest exercises are taught in the first semester, and the less important and hardest exercises are taught at the end ot the second semester. In order that these exercises or skills may be taught in a manner that appeals to the student, suitable projects are sugf gested which cover a whole group of exercises. Planing projects, saw- ing projects, boring projects, gaug- ing projects, curved sawing projects, and joining projects constitute most of the program during the year. ln addition to the regular shop work, related and helpful informa- tion pertaining to lumbering, paints and finishes, wood fasteners, and other hardware supplies is covered. Since most of the boys will prob- ably not take up carpentry as a trade, the material in the course is so selected that it will be of great value to them around the home. nl fwrrr' of 'l'rmIs .tpplying Nluin I-'in-ishiny 'l'mn'I:fw 1 111111111 11 11111111 .l.v.v1'111l1I11111 f'1'1l111' Jf11111i1111 1111 IC1 f'I11'vl I-Xdvanced Woodworking ln woodwoilzintg the student is tiivcn the opportunity to learn about one ot the largest and oldest indus- tries in the world. industrial wood- worlainq is divided into niany trades such as carpentry, cabinet niakinq, pattern nialiin-yi, wood turninq, and wood finishing.

Industrial arts in high school is not taught with the purpose of nialcinq a tradesrnan. Many students, alter completing the industrial arts pro- qrarn, do enter the various construc- tion trades such as carpenters, pattern nialcers, cabinet niakers, and wood finishers. Others qo to trade school and further specialize in some particular trade. For the student who does not use the skills learned as vocational traininq there reniain many benefits. Minor repairs and carpentry jobs are simple tor a nian who knows the principles of wood- working. Many worthwhile hobbies are direct outqrowths ot techniques niastered and interests discovered in the work in the hiqh school wood- workinq classes. f'I11'1'I.'i1111 'l'1111I.v 11111 .ll111.'i1111 ll 111111 l Commercial Department The Commercial Department at- tracts mainly those students who, upon graduation from high school, are planning to seek an office career. Because the number of students looking forward to this type of work is increasing rapidly, the department is becoming one of the largest in the school. According to figures com- piled by Miss Beck, the number of pupils taking commercial work has doubled within the last five years. There are now 308 students enrolled in the commercial subjects. The aims of the commercial dev partment are clearly defined. They are first, to teach skills for personal use if the pupil takes only one year of commercial workg and secondly, to fit pupils for office work if the full, twoeyear course is taken. ln accom' plishing these aims, the department is constantly on the look-out for inno vations which will improve the courses. As a result, we find various activities and projects carried on by the classes, to say nothing of the Various commercial clubs, which do much to improve the pupils' stand- ards of skill and aid them in later adjusting themselves to the business world. For success in an office position, one must possess an interesting per- .tflrliuy 'l'h1'n1 VII l'unzptrm11'If'r l'4m.w-tous Ultiw' .lXNl.YfllIIfV un life .Vllli'l' Tflllf N1ll'l'll IIrmkIt'f'r'11i11y Niniplifiml lfll'ffljl'IlIllI'U1l1'I'1lf1l -.1 - -F - Commercial Department sonality and qood character traits. Realizing this, the advanced short- hand classes conduct business letter writinq and personality projects. The students are presented with problems which are likely to occur frequently in the business world. They are instructed to solve these problems to the best ot their ability in a qood business letterg or, as in the personality project, they learn to be tactful in every-day dealings with people. ln addition, durinq the second semester there are discus- sions ot traits necessary in business. ln the advanced bookkeeping classes, the pupils study not only ledqers and journals, but they also learn to operate such office machines as the bookkeeping machine, the comptometer, various types ot adds ina machines, and a new machine recently added to the department, the calculator. The commercial classes as a whole are often called upon to assist in the ottice work, and some indi- vidual pupils do work tor teachers. Duties connected with this work are typing stencils tor mineoqraphs, tak' inq dictation, typinq letters, and other similar duties. The pupils thus qain valuable experience which will aid them in their jobs later on. tltnu lx S1'1'in1l,s- l:llXillf'NN lltrwuta' 'l'r1.r f'f.l'1l1'I'f "lll'tjlIlfjl" ljI'U1lll'IllN In Nnlrw llflfllllllll .tt-vuttlifx I-'iliny t'1l1'r'l.'ing1 .l1't'1lllHf,Y 'L it :pw If Ilrtl' 'l'u'u l'f'1'!'f'r'f Ulwfs ' tn' 'l'hry1 lmnwf Xu!

Through the study of literature the student gains an introduction to Writers and books and acquires a habit of reading good books which may well become a worthwhile and enjoyable hobby for leisure time. Consequently the classes in English at Normandy are essential and beneficial to a well- rounded education. lnteresting courses in the English Department are those in journalism, dramatics, and speech. The journal- ism course is an introduction to newspaper work, designed to help a student determine for himself whether he wants to make a profes- sion of journalism. Dramatics and speech courses include the study of good plays, the art of make-up, of reading aloud, of acting, and of speaking before an audience with poise and confidence. The English Department through these special courses has an opportunity to meet more fully the needs of the students.

Then, in the middle of the eighth grade they may select the language they prefer and begin a study which lasts for two or three years. The ultimate aim of modern lan- guage instruction is the acquisition of a sympathetic understanding of at least one foreign nation in relation to our own nation by means of learn- ing the language which the nation speaks. The foreign language stu- dent today learns more than just vocabularies and translations -he Ih'm1rI1'r1xI.v Foreign Language obtains knowledge of the back- ground and ways of life in the coun- try whose language he is studying. Foreign language students bring to the entire school group an informed sympathy which brings about fairer and sounder opinions than would otherwise be possibleg therefore, these students are better able to resist the influence of propaganda and are better citizens. Although only one language is studied, the feeling of international friendship spreads through the knowledge of a foreign language and the country that speaks that language. Page Sev enty-one Mathematics A knowledge of mathematics is becom- ing increasingly important in our modern and complex civilization for various rea- sons. Many heretofore vague sciences are being reduced to simple, mathe- matical terms. Success in any profession or trade cannot be attained without com- plete understanding of the principles of arithmetic. ln addition, during our grade school and high school education, solving difficult problems furthers such desirable habits as concentration, accuracy in rea- soning, and self-reliance in work. Mathematics is an exact science -that of numbers and space. lt is the root for the basic and applied sciences: in fact, it is often called the "language" of sci- ence, and it is just as much an interna- tional language as is music. Mathematics, as a whole, is subject to less change over periods of centuries than any other known study. Formulas that were used two thousand years ago have never been dis- proved, and they will be used two thou- sand years from today. During the seventh and eighth grades, every student is required to take math. Throughout high school, the courses in algebra, plane and solid geometry, and trigonometry are elective, but since aspir- ants for college entrance must have two units in mathematics, many pupils take the advanced courses. It is in the high school classes that the foundation for a large number of professions based on mathematics is laid. All boys interested in engineering take all the math courses available. Training such as they get in these high school courses form a valuable basis on which to build their further training. .t Sinrly in Iiolrmy If'.w llvrul l'fl1'f'll'if'ffjI, nur lfrirml Tl'SflIIfl I"ourlx U'i.vf' Inznkx Ptngv St-vi-nty-two Science Thirteen years ago the Science Depart- ment of Normandy High School was poorly equipped, with only five general science classes, two biology classes, and small sections in physics and chemistry. The first small science club was organ- ized twelve years ago. Today there are ten biology classes, two chemistry classes, and two physics classes in the senior high and approximately thirty classes in gen- eral science to accommodate the seventh, eighth, and ninth-graders. There are now two science clubs, both affiliated with state and national organizations, Nor- mandy's Science Department is far richer than the average school because of its fine museum, herbariuin, and Nature Trail. The aims of the Science Department are to teach students how to solve their own problems so that they may live more happily, and to train pupils to collect ine formation, evaluate findings, and think for themselves. No special method of teach' ing is used. During the year optional work is supplied for those pupils having a special interest in some phase of the science that they are taking. The project system grants to students who have fine ished the minimum essential work oppor- tunities to verify their theories experi- mentally. The students at Normandy are given the chance to apply what they learn and think in real life situations. For two years in succession Normandy students have been elected honorary members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This has not occurred in any other high school in America, a fact in which we may take pride.

O'Dorinell, Morrocco Any girl who is interested in music and desires to further her knowledge of choral singing is eligible to try out for the Senior Girls' Glee Club. Mrs. Mary Franklin, the sponsor, makes the final choice of girls qualified for membership. The Glee Club forms the basic girls' music organization, for the members of the smaller and more specialized groups are selected from its roster. The girls were called upon to entertain at various festivities throughout the year. They sang at several P. T. A. meetings, and, dur- ing the Christmas holidays, they pre- sented an impressive candle-light program of Christmas carols. ln addi- tion to performances in the commu- Meye-r, Oberrnann, iiotte-nun, Faquin, P. Rea. Zimmer, Smith, Short, Maynard, Phipps, Stuteviii nity, the Glee Club entered both the District and State contests, where it received first ratings. Since the Na- tional Music Contests were held in Kansas City this spring, the girls had an opportunity to attend. The development of good choral technique requires concentration, time, and effort. Enunciation, phras- ing, tone-production, shading of the voice, and many other details must be carefully studied. The finished performance is so smooth, however, that only an expert can appreciate the tremendous amount of work put into it. The girls are to be highly commended for the willingness with which they practiced and worked. Page Seventy-six F t-V The Senior Boys' Glee Club is com- posed of boys whose voices have fully matured and who are capable of singing more advanced and diffi- cult music. The best male voices in school are selected for membership. Under the guidance and direction of Mr. Hadley Crawford they practice three times a week. These boys received a first rating in the State Contest at Columbia and were given honorable mention be- cause of their selection of such diffi- cult music. With the help of the Board of Education the Boys' Glee Club was able to go to Kansas City with the girls' group and represent Normandy in the National Contest. Senior Boys' Glee Club The boys had more difficult judging restrictions there, but came home with a second rating of which they may justly be proud. The high standards set and followed by the Cwlee Club serve as an outstanding asset to Normandy's Music Depart- ment and should be respected by everyone. Aside from presenting two as- sembly programs, the Glee Club also sang for the Mothers' Club and gave two church programs, one at the Nelson Presbyterian Church and the other at the Bethany Lutheran Church.

Une of the outstanding vocal music organizations at Normandy is the Mixed Chorus, which is com- posed of the best singers from the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs. Mixed choral singing, when done properly, is the most effective type of vocal music for several reasons. The wide range of voices permits more spec- tacular arrangements and a greater variety of selectionsy colorful and delicate shadings of expression can be obtainedp intricate background effects, which heighten interest, are made possibleg in short a combina- tion of boys' and girls' voices pro- duces the most satisfactory vocal performance. Mr. Crawford, who rehearses the Mixed Chorus, encourages the mem- bers to participate in the activities of music groups outside of the school. The experience gained by singing under different directors is valuable because each one generally has his favorite technique of directing. Then, too, one organization may excel in the rendition of certain types of music which are not attempted by others. Unfortunately, the Mixed Chorus is hampered by lack of practice time, but the members have made Wonderful progress despite this handicap. More attention should be given to this group because a good chorus is always an asset to the school. Page Seventy-eight Tenth Grade Boys' Cflee Club The Tenth Grade Boys' Glee Club was organized to serve as a training school tor the Senior Boys' Glee Club and the male section ot the Mixed Chorus. lts members, of course, ex- pect to do future work in the more advanced sections. Occasionally, a student has displayed so much talent that he was immediately promoted, but this is not the customary pro- cedure, since even the most promis- ing vocalists need a certain amount ot fundamental training. The organization of the Tenth Grade Boys' Glee Club has given the music department two distinct advantages: as previously noted, it bridges the gap between junior and senior high singing groups: and, in .nu .ar - - f-i - case there is a vacancy in one of the advanced clubs, a replacement can be immediately obtained. This group probably receives the least attention of any music organization in the school. lt is not a "show" club in any sense ot the word, but an appreciative listener can discern real beauty in its performances. The boys, moreover, are interested solely in developing their abilities in order to prepare themselves for advanced work. The reader must not believe, from the foregoing, that the Tenth-Grade Boys' Glee Club is only a study club. Members sing for their own pleas' ure, and, after all, the enjoyment of music compensates tor all the work. Top RCW: Guseriian, Hemkel, S1anton,Steper,Audrain, Schultz. E. Smith, Bauman.

The Glee Club consists of forty members, most of whom are eighth and ninth- graders, although a few seventh- graders of exceptional ability are admitted. ln order to improve their individual voices and also to perfect their group singing, the boys practice during every club period and occasionally in the mornings, when extra practice is necessary. Letters are awarded to the mem- bers on the basis of the amount of points they collect. For each re' hearsal they attend, the boys receive a point, at the end of the year, those with the required number of points receive a letter. In the past year, the club has adopted red sweaters as their uniforms. Now in its second year, the organ- ization has presented several pro- grams. They appeared before the Mothers' Clubs of Garfield and Har- rison Schools, Where they were en- thusiastically received. They entered the County Contest held at U. City and received very favorable com- ments from the judges. Page Eighty lunior Girls' Glee Club i 1 Top Flaw: Nichols, Hotscn, Wibtnelman, Rossel.

The goal of the club is not only to develop group singing but also to inspire an appreciation of good music. This is truly excellent training for these girls, tor the points stressed in this club are the same as those in both the Senior Girls' Glee Club and in all of the daily music classes. When the members oi this club reach high school, they are well versed in the fundamentals ot music. The junior girls are under the leadership oi Miss Betty Tackett, who, although she has had them for only a year, has brought about an excellent co-operative spirit among the members. Their chief perform- ance ot the year was the Spring Festival, at which they truly demon- strated all that they had accom- plished during the year. There were about eighty or ninety girls in this group, a number which is a splendid representation oi junior girl students interested in music. They have by now acquired a knowledge oi singing and an appre- ciation of good music, and we have no doubt that they will be splendid replacements tor vacancies in the Senior Girls' Glee Club when the time arrives.

Some students who are interested in music do not have ability to sing and cannot quality for membership in one of the singing groups. Often those students can find places in the band or orchestra. For beginning students Mr. Lawrence Guenther trains and works with the Iunior Orchestra, and Mr. Alfred Bleckschmidt directs the Iunior Band. Members of both these junior organ- izations strive to improve the quality of their work in order that they may be advanced to the Senior Orchestra or Band. The ability of the Iunior Orchestra, however, should not be underesti- mated: they play arrangements of the old masters and sometimes bor- row music from the senior group. Their performance is indeed startling for such a group of novices. Eager co-operation with each other and with Mr. Guenther makes it an en- joyable organization to work in. Tryouts are held at regular inter- vals and the members of the orches- tra themselves choose the students they think should have the first chair in each section. Mr. Guenther and these boys and girls are indeed to be congratulated for their fine work. Page Eighty-two lunior Band First Row: P. Gena, Nelson, M. Miller, Anderson. Fl. Miller.

By teaching elementary school children about different instruments and showing them the importance of each one, Mr. Bleckschmidt has Created an interest in band music among the younger students. This early training has done much to im- prove the instrumentation, which sur- passes all previous years. Students in the Iunior Band, as well as those in the other instru- mental groups, have the advantage of sectional rehearsals. In such a rehearsal just one of the many sec- tions of the band is present. Thus students are enabled to learn better their separate parts and to overcome minor technicalities that may have bothered them in group practice. Since all of the members of the Iunior Band are ambitious and desire to be admitted to the senior group they work long and late hours to increase their ability. Such effort on the part of individual members shows results in the improvement of the band as a unit. Frequently they practice on music that is being used by the Senior Band.

These are some ot the remarks one is liable to hear it he listens in on some ot the conversations aiter a Senior Orchestra rehearsal. The Orchestra has shown so much improvement that Mr. Guenther, the director, has concentrated most ot the year on music Written by the old masters. The string section this year is the best in the history ot the organ- ization, and the tone, technique, and balance ot the whole group have been excellent. Particularly com- mendable has been the fine inter- pretations that the Orchestra has made oi many ot the world's master- pieces. Several critics have coni- rnented on this quality. Normandy Senior Orchestra made several public appearances and entertained the student body in as- sembly. lts greatest thrill came, ot course, when the judges ot the State Contest at Columbia awarded the group a tirst rating. Norrnandy's ore chestra was one ot the two Class A orchestras in the state to receive such a rating. The entire district should be proud ot the students who have a part in the Senior Orchestra.

One of the most practical and valuable organizations in the school, although it is one of the smallest, is the Shorthand Club. Through partici- pation in its activities, a student may become very proficient in taking dic- tation. Since speed and accuracy in making shorthand notes are indis- pensable to the would-be secretary, the Shorthand Club has an enroll- ment of students who feel that they need a little more supervised prac- tice than class periods afford. The inefficiency of most members was due to minor technical defects which were soon ironed out by regu- lar practice. Special work, designed to step-up speed, was done by the group as a whole. After the notes were transcribed, Mrs. Mary Fergu- son, sponsor of the club, compared Officers President La Ver ne Roth Vice-President Betty Hansen Sect etary Kenneth Glasser Treasurer Doris l.f1n' inert Spf-nsm Mis.

By bringing to students a better understanding of the customs and conditions prevailing in foreign countries, Mr. Schill hoped to arouse their interest in the lives of others. Sympathy and understanding would follow interest, and international thought would then replace national and selfish thought. The students designed programs to carry out this idea. Guest speakers gave first--hand information about countries they had visited or lived in, and various racial groups presented their opinions on contro- versial questions. impartial observa- tions by visitors to foreign countries constituted a great many programs. Miss Marion Beck, Miss Helen Villard and Mrs. Anita Keaney were the Normandy teachers who spoke. Mr. Schill also invited several other people to appear before the club. Many students had foreign correspondents, from whom they ob- tained additional information. Stamp collecting and various hobbies con- cerning other nationalities were a part of club activity. Page Ninety-two C 1 S FOR COSMOPOLITAN Foreign Correspondents Hawaii, China, France, England, ECJYDT, and Italy are only a few of the countries in which the Foreign Correspondents Club members are interested. As the title of the club suggests, its purpose is to obtain at least one foreign boy or girl for each member of the club to become acquainted with through correspondence. Mr. Hixson, the club's sponsor, attempted to contact many different countries so that many nations would be represented. He encountered some difficulty, however, since several countries were prohibited the priv- ilege of writing to a foreign locality, because of the present war. During the meetings, conducted by the club's president, Helen Denley, the members occupy them- selves by writing their letters to their "pen pals" or by reading aloud por- tions of the letters which they have received. Club discussions also center on fundamental differences between races. Mr. Hixson endeavors to point out the best and the worst traits characteristic of certain peoples. As a result, students come to realize that no race or nation can lay claim to superiority over any other race or nation. Thus, the Foreign Cor- respondents Club might be called "club with a purpose."

Equipment is furnished by the school, and the organization at pres- ent meets in the girls' gym locker roorn. The girls are trying to arrange for a larger place for next year's games. Because the club period is only torty minutes long, generally the girls play doubles. The teams are shifted each week so that everybody gets a chance to play against every member. Approximately tour games are played in a period. Betty Lee Courtney and lean Gibler Won the doubles tournament at the end of the first semester. Mrs. Burns, the sponsor, believes that the enrollment ot the club will be even larger next year, because ping pong is rapidly growing in pop- ularity all over our country. The girls realize that the sport is as healthful as it is pleasurable, and they are anxious to become good players. They consider it an excellent Way to use leisure time. Page Ninety-six is PoR PLACEMENT Senior Boys' Ping Pong Club During Wednesday afternoon club periods the Senior Boys' Ping Pong Club meets in the woodworking shop of the Vocational Building. Coached by Mr. Russell Doyle, who is quite an expert player, the boys brush up the fine points of their game. The members furnish paddles and balls for themselves, and each pays a small fee used for the upkeep of the other equipment. There are no other dues, since the club is a purely recreational organization. Ed Ford and Earl Shuey, of the Ping Pong Club, gave an exhibition of their skill during an assembly. They showed that ping pong is a really strenuous game, not merely an idle pastime. The club, as a whole, engaged in two matches with the Kirkwood High School. Though some of the individual achievements were outstanding, the team was de- feated. During the second semester, an elimination tournament was held in order to determine the best player in the club. The increase in the membership seems to indicate that ping pong is growing in favor with the student body. The discontinuance of intra- mural competition probably led many students to join one of the several clubs.

Mr. George Bruno, the sponsor, instructs the boys in the various holds and techniques of this fine sport. The club not only furnishes recreational opportunities for senior high boys, but also helps them build up their bodies and develop their muscles. A refreshing thing about the club is that there is an interest in real Wrest- ling and its leverages, something not visible in the slapstick seen in our local sporting arenas. Since it provides future material for the varsity squad, the Wrestling Club is in reality the foundation of the squad, which has one of the best records of the competitive teams in our school. The club is composed of boys in the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. These boys compete in individual matches according to their weights. Two of the club's best wrestlers, lames Pardue and Bob Cord, have won their varsity letters, and the latter won a state championship.

A small fee, paid upon entering, pro- vides the participants in this fast and fast-growing game with the nec- essary balls, paddles and nets. After the entrance tee has been paid, there is no further charge, even though one may remain a member of the club tor several years. Don Heuser won a contest which was held early in March. He had to face the other members who had been selected by their instructor as being worthy to compete. After win- ning the elimination matches rather easily, he beat out runner-up Dick Houchens in a game that had spec- tators on their toes. Few people realize that a well- played game is something of an artistic achievement. But, after all, ping pong is really miniature tennis, and one must strive to perfect his chops, drives, lobs, and even his footwork, just as in tennis.

Sports Pcrqe One Hundred Six is FOR TOUCHDOWNS Although the Varsity Football boys were downed in scoring, they were unsurpassed in courage and deter- mination. Throughout their tussles with heavier, more experienced teams, they displayed commendable traits of fair play and good sports- manship. The boys were in there trying every minute of every game, and they need not be ashamed of any defeat. Coaches Iames Major and Arthur Shipherd did a very excellent job with the green material which came from sophomore and junior grades. With only eight seniors on the squad "lim" and "Ship" had the task ot training an inexperienced group for varsity competition with other schools. The showing of the rookies, however, gave promise of a winning team next year. Varsity Football In Coach Major's opinion the out- standing section of this year's squad was the backfield, featuring the run- ning, kicking, and passing of Rudy, Swyers, Aussieker, and Schwegler. These triple-threat backs gave the opposition many a hard knock and fans many an exciting moment. The line, too, did its part, for without its blocking and rushing the team could not have completed its plays, and the offense would have run up higher scores.

Results of the games played this season, one victory, one loss, and two ties, are an especial credit to the defense, since the offense was very weak. The offense, however, was sparked by several outstanding players in the backfield and line. Iim Bowman, who was captain of this year's team, along with Dillallo and Collett, led the offensive attack of the team to what victory they did have, and also the 6 to 6 tie with Webster. Collett was put out of competition by a bad knee, an injury which was a loss to the backfield. Most of the power and spirit of the line was supplied by Ezell, the center and probably the heaviest man on the team: Cook, a guard: and Tracy, a guard. Some of the boys on the team be- cause of their height and Weight probably won't see action in ad- vanced line-ups next year, but will be the backbone of next year's "C" team. Some of the taller and heavier boys who show football ability will probably be in reserve varsity com- petition next year. Paqe One Hundred Eight is Po'R NOVICE The lunior High Football team under the leadership of Coaches McClanahan and McConnell had an excellent season with four wins, one loss, and one tie. The boys showed excellent sportsmanship, and next year they will probably see action in more advanced lineups. Their best games were those with U.

"Allowing only two first downs to their opponents is credit to a beau- tiful defense," remarked the coaches. The C.B.C.-Normandy game was also in Normandy's favor. The victory was credited to a variety of playsp Bob Samel's fine kicking and Ralph Keeney's great line plunging were lunior High Football in Normandy's favor. Normandy's final game with Soldan was another victory for the powerful junior high eleven. The coaches credited this victory to the improved spirit and courage of the team Last year a feud was started be- tween the football teams of Coach Bruno and Coach McClanahan. lt was renewed this year when the Junior High Team was challenged by the "B" team to see who could finally win the honors. The teams battled during an assembly period to a 0 to O tie. Whether they will renew their battle again next year is not known. Schedule Normandy ..........,. I3 C.B.C. ......,,........,...

Prophets and observant amateur sportsmen of the district forecast gloomy weather for the hard- wooders, but the sky broke clear as the season progressed and they won nearly halt their games. That many ot their games ended in scores oi such narrow margins shows the prophecy was truly a mistaken judgment. ln the Annual Normandy Christ- mas Tournament, in which our cagers tied for tirst honors with Maplewood, twenty-tive teams ac- cepted invitations. These games were played in the week oi Decem- ber 26-30 and gave the Vikings needed practice. The high-point crown was won by D. C. Wilcutt, and by virtue of this feat, he ob- tained tirst team forward position. Graduation cut out tive ot last year's Vikings from the squad, but there will be only one to go this year- -Kroehnke. This set-up will be advantageous in that most of the '40-'4l team will have had varsity competition experience. Schedule Benld ....,.,,. Normandy McBride .,... Normandy Flat River .

The team, under the coaching of Mr. McClanahan, did an excellent job of ball playing this year. Mr. McClana- han coaches his teams in a unique manner. When a player gets to be good and scores continually, Coach McClanahan takes him out and re- places him with someone else. This gives the fellows on the team a knowledge ot unity and co-operation, which will be very valuable to them, especially when they see action in more advanced competition. The players who were used the most this year were Samel, Walters, Koester, Smith, Aitkens, Bergemeyer, and Swahlstedt. Coach McClanahan claims that il he had kept these boys lunior High Basketball in the game constantly, especially Bob Samels, he would have won three-fourths ot the games played instead of only one-halt. They may not win all their games, but they have learned the lesson ot sports- manship and co-operation. Scores Normandy ............ 18 C.B.C. ........,........... 14 Normandy ............

With the five weeks of bad weather that halted practice considerably, there was little hope for an outstand- ina team. The round-robin tourna- ment arranged between Normandy and the other five leaque teams was cancelled because of the lack of practice for all the teanis. lt was ex- pected that Normandy would play ten qaines this season, two with each nieinber of the league, however, the varsity had to be satisfied with seven qarnes. The ineliqibility of Marvin Nations and Bill Wilson kept them off the teani. However, their places were filled quite adequately by Ray Ray, McGovern, Audrttin, l-leinkel. Harper, Stanton, Dixon, Held. ini P r Wittl lrku tr it edm, owes' iez, .wiv , A Reiners and lohnson. Yet another source of trouble was the lack of experience of niany of the players, Soccer is a qame most boys know very little about before they enter high school. Fortunately, however, inexperience is a temporary factor, and, therefore, these inexperienced players of the l94O season will prob- ably qive Coach Toni McConnell qreat satisfaction in 1941.

Coach George Bruno never found it possible to start his "first string regulars" in a meet. this year was live wins and seven losses. By tar the most outstanding meet was the state meet at Colurne bio. Five Normandy men placed and tour, Mcfflinton, Cord, Flockman and took tirsts, giving Normandy the State Championship Wrestling team. This, however, is no new honor for Coach Bruno's boys, because they have been state champs for tour consecutive years.

The team kept up this good record until the Indians oi U, City scalped them 6-5. The team was aided greatly by sluggers Bachman and Moroso, who led the team with comparatively high batting averages. Most pitching was done by Pollard, Samel, and Hild. The latter is improving steadily and is going to prove a real threat to the opposition. The scoring this year is a great improvement over that of last year because only three players ee Tracy, Connell, and McClinton-were cut out by gradua- tion. This gave Coaches lim Major and Tom McConnell a chance to work with experienced material. The final game with Webster Groves was indeed a fitting climax. Pitching no-hit ball until the fifth in- ning when Webster scored their only run, a homer, ninth-grade Bob Samel pitched his most brilliant game of the season, with eleven strike-outs.

Although the coinpetie tion was not exceptionally stiff, the team ended the season with two victories and two defeats. The Normandy-Fairview game was a decisive victory for the Iunior Vik- ings. Normandy lost her two games by only one run each, a proof of the team's strong defense ability. The tearn's starring batteries were Valadabene, Taylor, and Thayer, pitch, and Samels, catch.

So far this year the golf team has played four games, winning two and losing two, with three more matches to play before school is out. The team started off very well, winning from Maplewood and U. City, but they met their equal in the matches with Webster and Clayton. However, if the boys can win their next three matches, they have a fine record for the season. With improved team' work from practice the team has a good chance to come through. Only one veteran, Clarkson, who plays a good, consistent game, came out this year. The five new fellows are Dunham, Rouse, Gaskill, Vogler, and Brengartner. There wasn't any definite lineup for the boys because Mr. Krablin, who is their very able coach, is trying out different com- binations to see where he can get the best co-operation. Mr. Krablin has high hopes of developing a very efficient team for next year, since most of the boys are under classmen. Schedule Maplewood Normandy4Won U.

This year close to 850 boys and girls participated. However, since some of them competed in more than one sport, there were actually about 350 or 400 individuals taking part. Because of the increased interest in intramurals the Physical Education Department provided this year a larger and more varied program than ever before. Independent basketball, independent volleyball, co-ed volleyball, and track were added to the regular program. Co-ed volleyball seemed to be the most popular. The games are organized between teams representing homerooms. Any- one in the homeroom with the exception of members of varsity teams can take part in the games which are usually played before or after school. In addition to homeroom competition this year, boys interested in any particular sport had the privilege of organizing independent teams, which competed in a special tournament. Such teams were organized in basketball and volleyball. A new award system was inaugurated this year. According to the new plan, individuals of winning teams each receive a medal, and the homeroom receives an add-a-plate plaque with name plates lor each sport won. The credit for the wide range oi our intramural program goes to Mr. Art Shipherd. He gave freely of his time and energy in order that the maximum number of students could be reached and interested in any one of the variety of sports available.

The girls receive instruction and participate in the team games of hockey, basketball, volleyball, and softball. During the winter season a new group game similar to basketball, Goal-Hi, was introduced. Goal-Hi was demon- strated by Normandy girls for the Women's Physical Education Club of St. Louis, in a meeting at Washington University. Individual sports included in the program are tennis, table tennis, badminton, and archery. During the winter months sports classes are divided into squads for each of which a leader is chosen by the group. These leaders are responsible for their groups and help in the organization of a class tournament. New leaders are chosen to begin each new sport season. ln the spring each girl chooses two activities from tennis, archery, softball, and badminton, and her spring work is divided between these sports. Health instruction in the junior high school consists of classes meeting one period a week while lectures are given in the senior high school once every two weeks. Posture work is carried on in the regular physical education classes. The dancing classes are also a part of the physical education department, giving the girls a choice of either a sports or a dance program. The dance classes presented again this year their annual assembly in addition to their after-school entertainment. As a climax to their year of work they presented the program of dance for the Saga Queen and her court.

The purpose of the club is to help its members develop a likable and pleasant personality and to assist each one in acquiring social adjustment. The club has undertaken several projects. One of the most interesting was a contest in which a blonde, brunette, and a redhead were judged individually on poise, personality, and dress. The brunette won the contest. An excellent selection of books on personality was always available. The girls were encouraged to read that they might profit by the experi- ences of others. ln addition, the club had outstanding Women speak on various phases of good personality.

This bit of conversation gives clue to the efforts of beginners in the Knitting Club, but the more advanced students chatter away about any- thing, their hands working auto- matically. Some of the projects of club mem' bers are sweaters, mittens, and socks. Each one usually finishes two or three articles a year. Crochet ing and embroidering occupy sev- eral girls, who make pillow slips, table scarfs, and dainty little squares which some day become a table cloth or bed spread. If it is possible for the girls to help one another they do, for they feel that solving problems, routine or complex, ultimately benefit them. Some cases, however, require more expert advice: then everyone turns to Mrs. Margaret Witherspoon or Mrs. Genevieve Luce, the co- sponsors. Page One Hundred Thirty S 5 1 PORSTITCHES One of the most popular of the girls' clubs in the Iunior High School is the Iunior Knitting Club. A few of the girls prefer to embroider or crochet, but knitting is by far the favorite pastime. The members are divided into three groups, according to their experience. ln the first group lunior Knitting Club are the beginners, who, after learn- ing the fundamental stitches, put their knowledge to practice by mak- ing scarfs. The second group is com- prised of those who are far enough advanced to knit mittens or sweaters. The veteran knitters make up the third group.

An example of skill and muscular co-ordination was given by the boys of the lunior Tumbling Club in a March assembly program. One member jumping over a pyramid composed of six of his colleagues is usually the most popular stunt, although it is comparatively easy to perform. As the work progresses, the stunts become more intricate, and naturally, more popular. The boys' performances are so well-received that they are kept busy all year. Besides giving an as- sembly program, the club performed at a Normandy P. T. A. meeting, and at the lefferson, Garfield, McKinley, Harrison, and Washington grade schools. The instructor feels the boys will improve next year, as a number of the members are seventh graders who possess a great deal of talent. The Tumbling Club is an all- around health club. Tumbling makes the body more flexible and supple and exercises little-used muscles. Besides being beneficial physically, tumbling is a great deal of fun. These are a few points which tend to make tumbling a popular, fast- growing sport.

The tumbling results from a break- down of some formation. Sometimes the Tumbling Club is thought of as nothing more than a stunt club. This is an erroneous idea. Though the junior girls perfected such difficult stunts as the bridged- bottom man and pyramid building, they also learned much about the fundamentals of acrobatics during their club periods. ln addition to regular tumbling, the members con- ducted investigations about mus- cular control and reflexes. After completing this study, students felt that they had profited immeasurably. The Tumbling Club is important because it affords a healthful, safe outlet for excess physical energy. To the girl who enjoys athletics but Who does not have the time necessary to play on a school team, it offers a period of pleasure. Then, too, its graduates are well prepared to par- ticipate in the activities of senior high Qym groups.

At their meetings, the girls learn to practice the fundamental rules of practical etiquette. They are in- structed in the best way to prepare and serve food, the proper way to make formal introductions, and how to act on a "date" Miss Wallace encourages them to ask questions in order to banish doubts and fears they may have about certain situa- tions. Complete informality reigns during club meetings so that no one will hesitate to advance her questions. A popular feature of the club is the writing of critical compositions by the members. The girls analyze themselves to find the type of clothes best suited to them, the most attrac- tive Way to Wear their hair, and other important details which, when combined, go to make them all- around, well-groomed girls. Sports are also one of the main features of the club. The girls often go bicycle-riding and ice-skating together.

They have always sought new ways to vary the assemblies, and this year they have been particu- larly successful. Co-operating with the lunior Council, the group pre- sented four lyceum programs, which instructed and entertained the stu- dents. Their most popular contribu- tion, however, was the informal after-school dances, held once a month, where students had a grand time together. In addition to these tasks, at Christmas the Council supervised all the details of collect- ing and delivering the baskets of food to needy families. By observing the development of innovations in other schols, the coun- cil has been able to inaugurate many improvements. ln February the Council sent representatives to a conference at Webster Groves. Ideas were exchanged with students from the Councils of other schools, and the members came back inspired to co- operate in building a more effective program of student government.

Besides having improved their news mal-ze-up, the staff has under- taken the ownership of its own photographic department. This proj- ect was made possible through the profit from the St. Pat's Dance, which was, as usual, one of the best dances of the year. Much of the success of this year's paper must be attributed to the ex- cellent work of the two journalism classes, who are responsible for a majority of the feature articles.

With each edi- tion improvements have been noted, and now the Saga ranks among the outstanding annuals in this section of the country. Credit for this success goes to the members of the staff, who have given freely of their time and talents, and to Miss Mary Pitney, who, as sponsor, has guided them through all the difficulties of publication. During the first semester, the edi- tors and the business manager, with members from the Courier staff, at- tended the N. S. P. A. convention in Chicago. Some of the ideas ex- pressed there were employed in producing this Saga. The staff sponsored the annual Valentine Dance and the Coronation of the Saga Queen at the May Pete. Besides the staff members listed, many eleventh grade people worked this year to gain experience so that they may become the staff leaders next year.

Theirs is an enviable position. Through their activities, they come to know the works of great authors, the opinions of wise men, the customs of various and sundry peoples but more than all that, they come to feel a close kinship for the books they file, check in and out, and shelve. Most of the girls on the force were last year members of the Library Club, where they studied correct library procedure. By using this pre-training system, Miss Abigail Holmes has eliminated the disrup- tions of library functions, which would be unavoidable if an inex- perienced group was added to the staff each year. Most of these girls will undoubt- edly use this excellent training later on in their careers. There is always a demand for good librarians in the numerous public libraries or at schools which are fortunate enough to have a library. This knowledge may even help a girl work her way through college. Normandy has a very fine library -one that is well equipped and efficiently run. lts excellent standing is due to the tireless efforts of Miss Holmes and to the co-operation of the girls who have given up their music and free time in order to keep the library running smoothly.

Courtesy, dependability, patience, and scholarship are traits necessary for such a position. In re- turn for their services pupils receive the opportunity to learn the details of routine office procedure and to obtain the poise and self-confidence which are essential to success. Office work consists mostly of typing, filing cards, delivering mes- sages, and answering inquiries. Per- forming such tasks affords the student enough experience in busi- ness to decide whether or not he or she should pursue a business career. In addition, since these duties re- quire strict co-operation, the ability to carry out an assignment in per- fect harmony is developed. Some of the girls on the office force are majoring in commercial subjects. The practical training they have received in the office, coupled with their typing, shorthand, and bookkeeping, has given them a solid business foundation. Without any further training, they will probably be able to obtain a position after graduation. The office force probably performs more thankless tasks than any other school group. These girls have in- deed been an asset to the school. By their cheerfulness and willing- ness in assisting the faculty in any- thing required of them, they set a fine example for the student body as a whole.

The competition is keen, because in one year no more than fifteen per cent of the senior class and five per cent of the junior class may be admitted. The requirements for membership are that a student must be outstand- ing in scholarship, citizenship, and participation in extra-curricular activities. By making high grades, being elected good citizen in his classes, and taking part in activities, a student may amass the necessary total of one hundred points. The term "activities" includes not only clubs but also Saga, Courier, dramatics, music, entertainments, and athletics. ln addition, each student eligible must be approved by the faculty members who are familiar with his work. Each year, in addition to the seniors who are elected to member- ship, the two highest ranking boys and the two highest ranking girls of the junior class receive bids to this organization. This is considered an appointment of great distinction, for these four juniors become the officers of the Honor Society in their senior year.

Naturally, it is to be in the lunior Honor Society, and to attain this goal is the ambition of Anita Keaney, the sponsor, who de- votes much time and effort to the society. It is very unusual for a student to become a member in the seventh mitted to the society. Records of the Treasurer ever, only a select few have the qualifications. Pupils become eligible for membership by earning points in activities, in citizenship, and in scholarship. Participating in any of the numerous sports and extra- curricular clubs, holding offices or being elected best citizen in their classes, and earning grades above a "C" are a few of the ways in which students may accumulate points. They must have one hundred of these points before they can be ad- grade, and few are selected from the eighth grade. Membership may be retained until the end of the tenth grade, and then, of course, the aim of the student is to work for eligi- bility in the Senior Honor Society.

Again new-comers were initiated in the same hectic manner as were their predecessors. The fun, of course, was all for the old timersg some of it was rather painful to the rookies.

The work of the group has been carried on this year by the four charter members who returned to school. The club is open to those who are capable of doing the more intricate steps and techniques necessary to make dance routines more effective. The girls who belong to this club are energetic and ambitious in their work and are always looking for ways in which to better themselves and the dancing of the group as a Whole. In order to become a member of the Orchesis, the girls must first take part in a number ot try-outs that are judged by the tour officers and Mrs. Schneider. Only a selected and agreed number of girls are taken into the club each year.

They sing more difficult numbers than do the regular music classes. Various programs are planned for them with diiierent ones presiding.

Two by two, the most popular boy and girl from each grade came forward to bow before the retiring queen, Ruth Cassens and her escort, Dick Bushman, and take their places on the honored platform.

The queen graciously recognized the burst of applause from an admiring student body as she entered the auditorium. Then came that moment when Bill Qetting, co-editor of the Saga, placed on Anna Mae's head the crown, marking her as the outstanding girl graduate of 1940, an achievement which represents the highest honor that can come to a Normandy girl.

Were it not for them, the student would be forced to wade through many feet of snow and ice on wintry days during the cold sea- son. What would the campus look like if there were no one to cut the grass or rake the leaves and papers? Inside the building, examples of their industry can also be seen. The custodians clean the rooms after the students have lefty they keep the building heated to a comfortable temperaturep they make general re- pairs around the school: in short, they are always on hand when there is work to be done. Many more in- stances could be cited showing the innumerable tasks they perform in order to beautify the school and campus, but the space here is inadequate. Under the very able supervision of Mr. Talley, the custodians have brightened the days for the students and teachers of Normandy. All of us on the Saga appreciate their efforts to make our dances successful. Be- sides helping in the decoration of the gym, they wax and take care of the floors. On the evening of the dance, they direct parking and prevent con- fusion on the grounds. The custodians are truly the "Keepers" of Normandy High School and its campus.

One of the cooks, Mrs. Dammerman, who has been with the cafeteria for fifteen years, has attended every football, basketball, and baseball game, every field trip, and has been an Cinpp, Mrs. Rudy, Mrs. Stille, Mrs. Dammerman. active member of P. T. A. She often treats winning teams with cakes and parties. It is often said that too many cooks spoil the broth, but Normandy seems to have the correct number -Us no more, no less. Due to the efforts of the staff and the manager, Mrs. Wood, our modern cafeteria is some- thing to be proud of. Not only does the cafeteria staff furnish food daily for the students but they also serve food and refresh- ments for different banquets, parties, and meetings throughout the year. They serve for Hi-Y activities, P. T. A. and other club meetings, and also small parties and treats necessi- tated by Christmas, Valentine's Day, or Easter.

One of Normandy's biggest assets is its excellent system of bus service. A fine staff of experienced drivers, led by Mr. Lester Winder, transport about fourteen hundred boys and girls to and from school daily. ln addition to the regular morning and evening runs late buses are operated so that those students who partici- pate in athletics and any extra- curricular activities may also receive the benefits of bus trans- portation. Not only are our buses used for bringing students to school and tak- ing them home. Many times this year teachers have taken advantage of the availability of cheap trans- portation and arranged special edu- R. Crutnly, R. Rogers, A. 'Mclnturfi, G. Biedernian. Lewis, T.

History and art classes make fre- quent trips to the Art Museum, com- mercial classes visit business offices of big industries: science groups take a variety of field trips to exhibits and laboratories. The Music and Athletic Depart- ments make ample use of the buses. All groups eligible for state-Wide activities were enabled to participate largely because of the buses. The buses covered 8,3l8 miles on special trips around St. Louis and to such places and points of interest as Springfield and Benld, Illinois, Ieffer- son City, Columbia, Bagnell Dam, Arcadia, Meramec Caverns, and Kansas City. The large number of Page One Hundred Seventy-six trips and miles covered are ample proot that the teachers believe in and the students are interested in this type of education. In 1937, the school purchased eight buses to transport approximately 985 students living two miles or more from school. These buses traveled 39,221 miles over regular routes and 7,050 miles on special trips. In 1938, due to a large increase in enroll- ment, two additional buses, of the larger cab-over-engine type, were purchased, and 1,295 students were transported to and from school daily. These ten buses were operated over nineteen routes, covering 44,858 miles on regular trips and 8,950 miles of special trips. ,. Z3 Transportation A further increase in enrollment this year required the purchasing ot another large bus and a small spe- cial bus. At the present time, the school owns and operates twelve modern school buses over twenty- two routes, transporting 1,397 stu- dents to and from school daily. This year the buses were driven 60,115 miles on regular trips and 8,318 miles on specials. For the past three years, the buses have traveled 181,473 miles and transported 1,318,188 passengers on regular routes without serious road failures, accidents, or injuries to passengers. Such a record is one of which the whole district should be proud. Normandy's Fleet of Buses .. .-fl v " .tiff ,U .
