Dur- inq all the past several years of worry and uncertainty, of increased school popu- lation, and lower taxes and payments, the Nounandy Board has heen ahle to keep up the standards set earlier and even tc add tc thein in the way of huildinqs, new equipment and facilities, and landscape ings. When other school systems have curtailed parts of their service to their conununities, our schools have extended inore and more service. Thus, we have our own splendid hus service: we have unusual and recently added facilities for night study for those in daytime einploy' inentg we have a cofoperative spirit in the cornrnunity which has led to partvtirne enif ployrnent of niany of our pupils. These, cunonq niany, would not be listed as our qains hut for the awareness and forward strivinq of the Board. MF. Ml h lv! H lil li lvl li Mit ARTHUR G. SKlil,l.Y lltl Fll 'INT llllT'llfY lx.

Principal of Normandy High School That this school is interested in and does promote democracy is shown by its principals interest in allowing the students more and more control over their affairs. Mr. R. D. Shouse feels that we can learn by doing and by not being bound too closely by rules. ln a democracy such as ours, the success of the undertaking rests on the shoulders of those participating in it, and one cannot accept the privileges without assuming some of the responsibilities. We, as students, feel that Mr. Shouse expects a great deal of us, and we strive to do our best. l-lis concern for the school as a whole is founded on an interest in the individual students and faith in their ability to take responsi' bility and handle it well.

Green, Assistant Principal oi ' Normandy High School Education is the ioundation upon which to build citizens, and Mr. H. L. Green sees that we have opportunities lor broad experiences. When students need guidance and help, he gives it gladly and well, and in a sympathetic manner. That he handles students well is shown by the iact that they term him a "regular fellow" and are willing to follow his advice. He has the diiticult task oi dealing with truancies, and while he cannot keep them from happening once, he can talk to those who "skip" and pre- vent repeats. He knows that the stu- dents possess a great deal of common sense, that they can solve their prob- lems with a little friendly help. Friendly Advisors Mr. Marshall B. Rieqert. B.S.. B.M.

Administrator oi Normandy Iunior High School The administration of the Iunior High School sets a democratic example. Mrs. Bolm, the principal, guides the students and their affairs in a wise manner. We are proud of the juniors, the way they study, their activities, the Way they conduct themselves. Mrs. Bolm is constantly on the alert, mingling with the students, encouraging them, com- mending, correcting, and being firm if the occasion warrants it. Naturally, by being in such close contact with the stu- dents, she sees their needs and is better qualified to meet them. She is fair in dealing with these younger students and encourages self-reliance and de- mocracy. ln such a way these young- sters are given a good start, a sound foundation, that will mean much to them later on.

A little sleuthing will prove it to be the regular meeting of the Mens Faculty Club and the good food they serve. The president, Mr. Koerner, buys the food each time and with the help of Mr. Green and the other members a super-special meal is served with the cost to individuals of only twenty-five cents. Afterwards they all enjoy an evening of bridge and pinochle. Fun is the keynote, for while prepar- ing supper is a kind oi work, the drudgery oi dish washing is removed when a boy, whom they hire for the purpose, comes in to Clear away the maze, Page Twenty-Two Favorite Faculty Mr. Arthur Christ.

Classroom rehearsals precede intensive stage work. lndustriously working, these senior girls make this usual task of drudgery pleasant. Miss Olinger seems to have the knack of keeping the girls happy as they learn the art of making a home and running it economically. After lune, 1941, employers won't be short-handed. This class is typical stenographic preparation. Future working girls are writing their favorite subject shorthand. With their perfect letters, they will make life happy tor the harassed business men. By definition, physics is the science of phenomena ot inani- mate matter involving no chem- ical changes. To the uninitiated these words don't mean much, but Normandy students who study physics with Miss Long can explain them clearly. Knowledge gained here will help them in their engineering courses. Page I' itty-Six Vocational Opportunities Bill Schorr gives helpful ad- vice to Virginia Lueking as she writes a difficult equation on the board in Mr. Christians ad- vanced algebra class. Harold Schreimann supervises the operations in progress, while louis Seyfried is engrossed in the intricacies of the slide rule, indispensable to the engineer. In this Latin class, a lot of in- terest is shown, as pupils ex- amine pictures of ancient life. Latin, as taught by Mrs. Thoelke, is not a dead or for- gotten language. Study of pic- tures and stories makes the ancient world live again for these Latin students. Normandy students show deep concentration as they carefully study the problems that confront them in ordinary life outside school. Sociology teaches them practical ideas which will help them in their association with people in all life's activities. "Accuracy and efficiency" would be a good heading for this picture. Mr. Whitworth's mechanical drawing class works diligently, for after grad- uation its members will be re- quired to be accurate in their drawing and efficient in their methods. Boys not only learn how to draw to specifications but also experiment with blue' prints. 1 qt- Fifty Seven Only One Year Left Top Row: E. Smith, Dempsey, Steber, R. I-leinsohn Schultz, Stanton.

But, no matter how the individual feels, there is a definite satisfaction in knowing that one is so nearly fin- ished with an important step in life, that of education from kindergarten through high school. Though some of us have become attached to ,.rtzht.,1 teachers and friends at Normandy, it is still gratifying to know that in a short time something different will constitute our "daily grind", per- haps, in entirely new surroundings where we may make many new friends. Our class this year was led by an especially competent group of stu' dentsg namely, Fred Aussieker, who Page Fifty-Eight was class president and very well known for his sports achievernentsg Bob Meiners, eleventh grade vice- president and most popular boy: Betty Bushman, who was voted sec- retary and most popular girl in the junior classy and, lastly Ralph Wil- liamson, the efficient class treasurer.

Our most-helpful junior sponsors were Mr. Bergmann, Mr. Christian, Mrs. Farmer, Mrs. Ferguson, Mrs. Franklin, Mr. Ianssen, Miss Long, Miss Pitney, Mrs. Findley, Mr. Whit worth, and Mr. Krablin. Page Fifty-Nine Earliest Specialization GHG of the "must take" sub- jects of the senior school is American history. This picture, showing students doing some map work, depicts a typical day in this interesting and im- portant subject. Future voters must understand and appre- ciate the history of their govf ernment. After having learned the lighter but very important fundamentals of math, these students take an advanced course in mathematics. This one-semester course deals with arithmetic and geometry. Here students see advantages of short cut methods of calculation in solving intricate problems. After mastering the funda- mentals in beginning typing, advanced students of Type II concentrate on intensive prac- tice to increase skill. Miss Beck, Mrs. Ferguson and Mrs. Farmer supervise classroom work and give outside assignments des signed to make these girls Afl typists. Interest shown in this informal shot of Mr. Greens commercial law class is typical. Students discuss basic laws of this coun- try in connection with business procedure. Such information is not just for those who want to be lawyers but for every con- sumer. Page Sixty Personalized Learning Art appreciation aims to in- crease the students understands ing of famous artists in their paintings. Masterpieces are analyzed for design, composi- tion and general effect. Trips to the City Art Museum are ex' tremely beneficial in connec- tion with the study of this class. Pro and con! Thats the gen' eral idea of this panel discus- sion in one of Miss Pitney's eleventh-grade English classes. These talks on subjects of cur- rent interest give students opportunity for wide reading and oral expression. They are conducted completely by the students. This class, for the scientific- minded students of the senior high, is concerned chiefly with elements and their actions under special conditions. How to solve each problem, think clearly, understand technical points and evaluate findings are additional points empha- sized. These students won't have to worry about being stranded on a lonely road. ln this auto mechanics class students are learning what makes a car go or stop. The repairs most likely to be needed are the ones that are stressed. Opportunities for advancement in the automobile industry are also discussed. l'ti-it SixtyAOne Senior High Beginners Top How: Bonney, Becker, Fuchs, Bodley, Atkin Grue, Fink, Garrison. Third Row?

Thot's the situotion the sophomores force ot the beginning of the yeor. They hove just groduoted from three yeors of teoching entirely different from their grode schools ond now the senior school looms big ond terrify- ing before them. However, showing the fighting spirit ond couroge of the sophomore closses thot hove pre- ceded them, they come through with their heods up ond their minds crommed with knowledge. Not logging behind in onything, the tenth-groders were in every octiv' ity of the senior school. They were on severol vorsity teoms, portici- ported in every club, ond worked dili' gently for the betterment of the school.

Page Sixty-Three Classroom Shots Although early European history is a required subject, students find it absorbingly interesting. They learn interesting facts about the backf ground of countries whose present destinies are of supreme importance to us. Birds, bugs, worms and trees are the main topics in the biology classes. Examining different subjects through the microscope, to see what makes them "tick," arouses the inf terest of these biologists. They eagerly search for facts. Increased interest in South and Central American countries mean big enrollment in Spanish classes. Ed Tracy seems to be having trouble finding some obscure place on the map! His classmates watch him intently. Page Sixtyef' "Friends, Romans, and Country- men, lend me your ears" one of the well-known phrases in Hlulius Caesar," which tenth-grade English students study.

This subject teaches the boys how to handle rnetal and how to use their hands. They inake articles such as cookie cutters, cookie pans, and sugar scoops. A very popular language aniong Norrnandy students is Spanish l. Be- lieving this subject especially useful now because ot our association with neighboring Latin countries, the pupils hope to do their part in irn- proving international relationships.

An "Eighth-Grader" represents a rare combination of pep, enthusiasm, personality, and friendliness. lf the ultravsophisticates ot the upper term could pause and refresh their mem- ories, they would remember that a wonderful part of their lives was spent in the eighth grade. For most of them it unlocked the treasures of Normandy. Accustomed to class routine, the second-year student participates in extracurricular activities. Nearly four hundred students in this class have lived up to the standards of the school and have proved themselves worthy ot the title "eighth-gradersf' School athletics, orchestra, student council and all junior school activi' ties attracted them. The important Page Seventy subjects in the curriculum are aqain mathematics, English, and social sci- ence. A favorite elective is auto mechanics, where boys learn the anatomy of automobiles.

In Memoriam CHARMAINE DAHN March 29. 1941 Page Seventy-One Learning Predominates Knowing the importance of science in the modern world, the junior school starts its pupils on the path ot scientific discovery early. The classes ot junior science teach the necessities ot the scientific profession and its foundations and tunda- mentals. A typical scene in a math class is the struggling of students over a Vrolnlem in front ot the class. Here are shown two pupils working on a square root prohlem. Other phases ot this course are banking, income t1ix, insurance, areas, and volumes. Eloquence, enunciatton and starve are what Miss Schmuclcers pupils in iunior speech learn. Shown here is a student giving one ot a number ot speeches required ot each member of the group. Because oi the variety ol subjects, these talks are always interesting. Ch inyl A tlat tire. Well, it seems these two students know what they are doing. ln this class all sorts ot tacts about automobiles are tciuaht to the boys so that they may he a help instead of a hindrance in an emergency. Iudging by the students' expres- sions, we believe the answer must have been funny, but sometimes we can profit by our mistakes. A good foundation for the English language has always been helpful in every kind of business. The fundamentals of English are now being formed. Everyone knows that physical edu! cation is of prime necessity in good health and sound mind. It will never be said that a Normandy student doesnt get enough exercise. During his gym period he participates in all sports. Practical Experience This social science class studies the ever-changing maps and social conditions in Europe. These students try to link European happenings to their own text book knowledge and make comparisons. They follow cur- rent events closely and are able to carry on interesting conversations. These girls believe that to get to a man's heart they can go through his stomach. Under our cafeteria manager, Mrs. Woods, they learn all the "ins" and "outs" of cooking. They will keep their husbands happy with fine tasty meals.

Your knees were shaking, and you wore a frightened look. Such experience is common with all seventh-graders. The change from grade school to high school is a very important step. Many are the adjustments and changes that must be made, but after the students become accustomed to the routine, they find junior high M school even more interesting and enjoyable than elementary school. Although the courses of a beginner are of a wide variety, few electives are available. Only by investigating many subjects can the young stu- dents get a good foundation and determine their special interests. English, mathematics, and social science f-their basic subjects -meet Page Seventy-Four 1 ' 'Q Jkf'-4 every day. The minors, which meet on alternate days, constitute the re- mainder of the course. There is sew- ing for the girls, and home mechanics for the boys. All take nature study, art, music, geography, penmanship, spelling, physical education, and health.

Heuser, Mr. Hohreiter, Mrs. Shay, Mr. Gillilan, Mrs. Punshon, and Mrs. Bock, gave helpful guidance to the students in special periods for that purpose. Clubs, offering all kinds of activi- ties, allow the boys and girls extra time to develop special interests - either for academic purposes or for entertainment, such as development of special interests into hobbies. Page Seventy-Five Experimental Process A qroup of seventh-qrdde stu- dents working rndth problems dt the board in Mr. Heusers cldss is d frequent sight. Other pupils lobor iust ds industri- ously ot their seots, ds is shown in this picture. Advanced drithe rnetic, such ds froctions and simple interest, is their chief concern. Study of current events is ctn dll-irnportont time-tctlcer in Mrs. Brurnrnett's socidl study closses. Every student is obsorbed in these clearly onolyzed items from the news. Such study effects interest in other counf tries' notional problems ond in our own internal projects. Coreful exornindtion of this dioqrorn in or heotlth closs will no doubt brinq benefits to these seventh-qrdders in the form of hecrlthy bodies with sturdy structures. They'll know the purpose of the vdrious orqons und whot they con do to keep them functioning properly. The lure of fdr ploces cdn beqin while one is younq ond can be answered somewhat by QI study of the qeoqrophy of the world, coupled with all the ree ldted pledsures of science ond health investiqdtions.

Pdqo Seventy-Six Preparing for Future ln this unusually larqe class, the art pupils are industriously working on their projects as they hurry their efforts to be ready for inspection. The pur- pose of this class is to know pleasant color schemes and the careful execution of individual ideas which are encouraged in the individual. lndustrial achievement for social aood, rather than actual skills, according to Mr. Gillilan, is the primary aim toward which ZOO seventh-grade boys are workina in their course of home mechanics, the most elementary industrial arts course offered in the Iunior School. ln Miss Musarave's first semester class the qirls are learninq to make useful objects for themselves and for the home. But before the start of any work, they must study fabrics and colors. Here are the hem-turners and needle-threaders of to' morrow. These pupils are analyzina a simple English sentence at the board as an interested class- mate looks on. Correct English is an essential in life, as these students are quickly learning in one of Miss Schmucker's classes. You won't catch them making mistakes in speech and writing.

"Co-operation with the corridor officers in enforcing rules" seems to he the most effective suggestion received from talking to other students about conduct. After making a motion to this effect, the llfi-'rv S6 V ,-. Council turns to other business, which it handles in an orderly and able manner, giving the school excellent self-government. The administration and student body are grateful to these lunior Law-Makers for their interest. r1tyL1itl1t Student Legislators Participation in Council Nets Better Trained Citizens and Leaders tor Tomorrow Although Mary was quite sure that the school took pride in its student government, she was rather vague as to what the Student Council did. Curiosity prompted her to attend the next weekly meeting. Mary, seated in the back of the room, watched the proceedings. President Ioe McGovern called the meeting to order. tMary noted that the vice-president, Nancy Kolbohn, was ready to take charge it Ioe was absent.l Betty Bushman, the secre- tary, called the roll and read the minutes of the last meeting. Treas- urer Ralph Williamson reported on the financial condition, and the Council, composed ot representa- tives from every homeroom, settled down to business. "Should the Council authorize the purchase of some educational records?" "Would records made by famous people like Helen Hayes and Walter Huston for regular broadcast pur- poses be a worthwhile investment?" Suggestions and criticisms shot from the floor, but finally a member moved that the records be bought for use in the weekly homeroom pro- grams. This pleased the entire group, and the motion passed. Surprised that the group could spend such a large sum ot money, Mary wondered at the competence of the boys and girls. "How could they handle such situations wisely? Such experience certainly prepared them to be better citizens. The posi- tion ot Student Council Representa- tive must be an envied one." With a start, Mary realized that Ieanette VViss, to whom the task usually tell, had made the motion for adjourn- tContinued on page 1891 Top Row: Kolbohn, Kundle, Mellies, Schultz, Scliorr, Sheehan, Mellis, Rudy, Williamson, Moore, Secdnd Allow: Dixon, Houlle, Dunne, Eason, Borqstede, Bushman, Carpenter, Stoddard, First Row: Fritz, Cox, Smith, Wiss, McGovern, Lueking, Gorman, Barrier Iohnson.

The juniors have been com- plimented many times for their be- havior during assemblies. Corridor Officers posted at frequent positions throughout the building deserve the credit for the speed with which the students get quiet. Chief Assignment for Year The members of the force are selected very carefully by the spon- sor, Mr. Robert Rupp, and other faculty members, who make recom- mendations. Students must have good personalities, pleasant man' ners, and good grades to be eligible for consideration. The officers wear a distinctive silver badge, and the captains have similar ones of gold.

They're members of the National lunior Honor Society. To merit such recognition from their fellow students and the faculty, students must be outstanding leaders. This year only sixty out of the twelve hundred junior students were eligible for niembership. Scholarship, activities, and citizen- ship are the fields in which students may collect points. To amass the necessary one hundred is no small assignment. lt requires a great deal Rewarded for Excellence of work, study, concentration, and ability. ln order to be considered as a candidate a student must have a better than a "C" scholastic average, must hold offices or be selected best citizen in his classes, and must par- ticipate in sports or other extra- curricular activities.

The talents of these younger staff members are many: their chief asset is enthusiasm. Their ettorts equal those of the senior members, and working with Mr. Percival and Mrs. Byrant they receive training that will prepare them for key positions later. "We're going to do our write-up in play form." "We have an idea that will make ours especially interesting and readable."

The longer the boys are in the club, the more expert they become at "getting their man." After they get their man, he is carefully carried to the dark room. All the lights but one are out, and only the tick of a clock breaks the silence. A voice suddenly says, "this solution acid will be best." We might expect a scream, but none is heard. At long last, as we gaze into a vat, we see a face appear. lt grows larger and larger, till at last we see an excellent picture of Iim. These boys learn fast and well be- cause the club has excellent equip' ment. ln fact, they are very anxious to perfect their skills so they may break into the "big time" and bee come members of the Senior Camera Club. Occasionally even these younger students will get a shot that's good enough for one of the publications, but, of course, most of the "expert" work takes several years of experi- ence, These lads, however, are get- ting that early, so we expect bigger and better pictures.

Mr. Hadley Crawford, who does this task for Normandy, should be praised and appreciated very much, tor it is through his tireless eitorts that the group has become such a fine one. White sweaters with green "Ns" tlashing make an impressive sight as the boys iorm their lines to sing. The music they produce comes up to expectation, for no group is more enjoyed by the student body. ln addition to entertaining in as- semblies and at P.T.A., the group went to the U. City Music Festival In Melodious Songs of Old and the State Contest at Columbia. For the past two years Normandy's glee clubs have rated first. The 1941 group was not a disappointment for they repeated the excellent record. As a reward for their achievement they, too, made the trip to the National Music Festival at Topeka, Kansas. Mr. Crawford maintains that it is only through the cooperation ot all the members that the fine reputation oi the group has been established and kept. li really is no easy job to be at school for rehearsal at 8:00 a. m. three mornings every week all year long.

"Why is there a special group ot students called the Madrigal singers?" "Webster says a rnadrigal is 'a lyric, usually amorous and adapted to musical setting' " Mrs. Mary Franklin started a group of the best singers in school working on madrigals early in the fall as an experimental group. The delicate way in which madrigals must be sung to be effective makes them especially difficult to master. One voice takes the melody, and that person must practice diligently to put the song over. Ballads ot Ancient Minstrels After working and practicing once a Week all winter, the members entered the County Music Festival the first group of this kind in St. Louis County. The judges recommended that the singers be entered in the State Music Contest at Columbia. There they received Commendation from the judges and a superior rating, These boys and girls have moved a step further in the expansion of our music department. iNe hope that future students will not allow the group to lapse but will keep up the good work started this year.

The faculty plans club life for the students, but few clubs are en' joyed as much as this one. From the first, there is a spirit of good fun. lf the boys don't sing for Miss Tackett, their sponsor, they have to dress queerly and suffer the laughs of their fellow students. After this ordeal, they settle down to work, and work they do. Although the club is referred to as the Tiny Troubadours, the adjective means small in size, not in accom- plishments. They practice so hard that they make a very excellent showing at the various contests in which they participate. The judge in the County Music Festival com- mended them on their appearance and the spirit they showed. l'le further commented, "The parts are fairly evenly distributed, and on the whole the voices blend nicely. No wonder the Normandy High has such fine choral groups, if they all get such a fine start." These boys are able to combine work and play, with Miss Tackett's help, to such a fine degree that Nor- mandy's Iunior Boys' Glee Club is tops in singing ability and in social activity. They combine with the Girls' Glee Club to have parties that give a pleasant relief to the work. As a climax to the year's study and practice, the Boys' Glee Club combined with the Girls' Glee Club to present for the parents and stu' dent body a concert.

The members ot the class orchestras ot the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades are eligible tor this special group. The Iunior High members of the Senior Orches- tra also play with this group for extra practice. They made several public appear- ances this year, performing for the P. T. A., the Band and Orchestra Parents' Association, and the annual Large Musical Instruments Normandy Spring Festival. Mr. L. W. Guenther selects the members on the basis of their instrumental ability. Mr. Guenther also entered them in the county contest at University City and was highly pleased with the judges favorable comments on their accomplishments. Mr. Guenther states that the aim of this organization is "to provide future material for the Senior Orches- tra." Boys and girls who are ac- cepted in the Iunior Orchestra gain valuable experience in group play- ing and form proper practice habits early in their musical work. These habits are very important when they graduate to chairs in the Senior Orchestra. Standing: Mr. Guenther, Miller, Finn, Bylsma, Tesson. Fourth Row: Dixson, Gamache, Koch, Devos.

Mr. Bleckschmidt: Mr. Guenther and I plan the maneuvers and the qroup practices them durinq their class and club periods. t Normcmdy's Colorful Marching Band Forms N. H. S. on the Field Reporter: For what events did the band perform? Mr. Bleckschmidt: The band fur- nished music for all the pep as' sernblies, and, of course, everyone qot a chance to see them during the half at the football games. For each qame new formations were worked out. Reporter: Yes, I saw them there. They certainly added lots of color Page to the qames. Were you satisfied with their work this year?

Ninety-Six Classical Metal and Wood Symphonies in Gold and Silver Stimulate Interest in Cultural Education Arousing student interest in music of a classical nature proved easier than ever this year. Part of the in- creased interest must be credited to an organization known as the Con- cert Band. Instead of marches and usual band music, our Senior Con- cert Band produced classical music of all types. Working together in close co-operation, the student mem- bers and Mr. Bleckschmidt provided the student body with an improved organization worthy of note. Few people realize the actual work involved, the long hours of practice and rehearsal required. Many of the members gave up their evenings for this purpose, and their efforts were Their merits certainly not in vain. were proved when the band won a lirst rating at Columbia, Missouri, in the state contest. ln another respect, the class attene tion and work was not without re- ward. The band rated not only first, but a party, too. The members who went to Columbia will receive medals and letters will be given those who earn enough points. Try' outs, appearing at public perform- ances, playing solos, and practicing net the individual the points and add an inducement toward putting forth every effort possible. So you see that the band is serious about its work, fulfills its purpose, has been rewarded for its efforts, and develops a spirit of co-operation among its members. Everyone is well pleased with the success of the group and hopes for it to continue. Standing: Ruelil, Tliuerkott, Mr. Blecksclimidt, Taylor, McKay, Riclcenberg.

Therefore, the experi- ence they gain in the lunior Band is of great benefit to them when their time comes to be in the Senior organization. Each year the group entertains during a lunior Assembly program. The biggest thrill for the boys and girls of the lunior Band is during the Page Ninety-Eight annual Spring Concert, where they really show their colorsl The receipts of the ticket sales for this concert are usually applied on new uniforms or instruments or what- ever they need most. They showed great enthusiasm this year in their work and will prove to be a great foundation for the Senior Bands in years to come. Twirlinq High Sieppers Girls Are Eye-Catchers Twirling and maneuvering, the drum majorettes lead the marching band during the football season. With their clever antics they add much to the excitement of these games. Girls in both the lunior and the Senior High Schools join in the Baton Club, the group's formal name. Under the fine leadership of Mr. Bleckschmidt, their sponsor, they soon become experts at twirling their batons. Harriet Robertson leads the major- ettes, and under her march three At All Gridiron Clashes excellent twirlers, Pat Dondas, lua- nita Davis, and Dolores Rodgers. At the solo festival on March 8, five girls of the Baton Club demon- strated their twirling ability, but otherwise their activities were limited to leading the Marching Band at football games. Together with the band they worked up clever forma- tions and stunts that kept the spec- tators entertained and amused during the usually dull half-time period. They pepped up the crowd and filled them with the spirit to conquer as "lim" and "Ship" inspired the ball carriers in the locker room. Top Row: Weber, Sirnsliauser, Behlman, Drewes, Hentze, Finn.

Whether any of the girls continue studying library work, the experi- ence and familiarity with good literature will be an asset to them throughout their lives. Page One Hundred They Learn Tactics of Office Work What qualities do you think a member of the office force should have? I, too, was curious, so the other day I stopped at the office to ask Mrs. Phillips. As usual, she was glad to give me a few minutes of her valuable time. l was quite surprised that the girls had to have so much ability. Applicants must know how to type, have a pleasing personality, be dependable, have patience, and make good grades. "What are some of the duties of the girls?" I asked. "Oh!" she replied, "they do such things as typing, filing cards, deliver- ing announcements, and answering inquiries." These are tasks for which they receive no thanks. Mrs. Phillips added that most of the girls are tak- ing a commercial course, and for by Gaining Experience Handling Our School Business their work they receive experience, which is the greatest teacher, in actual office work. Splendid jobs wait these girls after graduation in business offices. Another duty, which isn't a pleas- ant one, is addressing pink slips. On the other hand, some of these slips are the "good" kind and will happily surprise the parents. When junior high pupils come into the office to ask how to find a teacher or another similar question that puzzles them, the girls are always glad to give them a helping hand. These workers, also, by their tact, avert minor tragedies and mix-ups whenever possible. After this interview, l knew that the Office Force was one of the essential "cogs" in the running of the school. P. W. Top Row: Schalk, Heinrich, Gorman, Serot, Smith, Schaetter, Mrs. Phillips.

"This isn't the art room, is it?" "See all those 'little bugs' on the papers of the students. Take a sec- ond look. Oh! Its really shorthand that's sprawled all over the papers." You also see "little bugs" crawling over the blackboard. As you listen you learn that a circle, a curve, and a dash make up the phrase "I should like to have." And so on with many other symbols. Ruby Snyder will tell you that this is called the "Pot-Hook" system of shorthand.

It appears that it is possible, for the girls in the Secretarial Club have done just this. Under Mrs. Ferquson's leadership the club members study require- ments a secretary must meet not only in office ability but in qroominq and poise.

An asset to the club is the Nature Trail on the campus. lt provides a first-class laboratory in which the students may experiment with plants not native to this section.

In your last letter you asked about the International Club in our school. I'll try to explain it to you. International good will and under- standing is so important to us that in addition to classroom projects we devote an hour each Wednesday to it. Now that the war in Europe has stopped correspondence with young people in England, France, and Ger- many, we are turning more than ever to our southern neighbors, realizing the importance of knowing them better. We are trying to educate ourselves to the general appearance of each country, their customs, and styles of dress. The numerous travel films Fruit' One Hundred Discussing Foreign Developments that are shown to our group help a great deal.

While other teachers and students are engaged in various activities in which they are interested some of them wax quite noisy too in Rooms 303 and 207B quietness reigns and students busily write, figure, or read. Following Thomas A. Edison's much quoted advice, the members of the Study Clubs believe that suc- cess is five per cent inspiration and ninety-five per cent perspiration. They are willing to perspire, men- tally at any rate, over their work In Quiet Pursuit of Learning before class, instead of going to class and waiting tor the inspiration to strike. "All work and no play makes lack a dull boy." Quite right. But some students think that "any Work" will ruin their reputations. Not so in the study groups. Besides the extra hour they get on home work, they have the advantage oi expert help and advice from the teachers sponsoring the organizations.

Every student at Normandy enters into the mighty varsity cheer. Such yells led by peppy cheerleaders are the life and spirit of any athletic event.

Heighten Spirit of School Booming across the field, the sound of cheering fellow-students urge Viking teams on to victory and keep them lighting even when the score looks bad. Cheerleaders don't quit when the football season ends. They keep right on through basketball, base- ball, and track.

As strange as it may seem, the lunior High Baseball Team is just that. All material for the varsity diamond sluggers comes frorn this so-called league. These boys are trained in the fundamentals of belting, fielding, horsehide-heaving, and all the other twists and tricks which constitute the ever-fascinating and favorite Ameri- can sport of baseball. future lohnny lvlizes and Bobby Fel- lers will be of value to them for the rest of their lives. Who knows but what one or more of them will take up baseball as a life work. Under the competent coaching of Mr. Sarius, they will possess a superb foundaf tion upon which to build their career. Mr. Sarius comments that this team was one ot the most enthusiastic and interested group of fellows that he has ever come in contact with in coaching. On several occasions, he has seen them collecting pointers at Sportsman's Park. Results of these observations may be seen in the out' standing plays which were pulled by lohn Stack, tricky second base, and Melvin Swyers, superb first- sacker. These fellows came through with a hidden-ball stunt that even their coach had never seen. The pitching staff, consisting of Benoist, Butler, and Chalfont, provided many a tense moment for diamond fans. Batting a good 600, the lunior 9 Squad showed its opponents what Normandy teams are made of.

They've a good chance to take top honors at the County and State Outdoor Meets to be held soon. Evan Wright, a new teacher at Normandy, comes from Washington University. He ran the mile for three years on the Washington track. Al- though he coaches the junior track team, he has been known to jog along with the Normandy distance men, talking to them, and, when the boys were nearly ready to quit, he was ready to go some more.

The Viking Cindermen lost a meet to University City, 57-21, consisting of the events in the state indoor meet, but in the actual state indoor meet the Normandy boys lost by only one point. In meets with several nearby schools Mike's boys showed consid- erable strength in only the field events. Probably the best showing this year was in the Chillicothe Busi- ness College Relays when the Vikings brought home the bacon, taking first place. Fred Aussieker broke the discus record and Frank Schwegler raised the distance on the broad jump. In the state outdoor Normandy To Any Competitors on the Track placed fourth with fiften points. First place went to C. B. C. with eighteen points. In the district meet prelimi- naries the juniors placed no one, but the seniors led the qualifiers in the upper bracket.

Finishing the season very success- fully, the lunior Vikings are looking for new fields to conquer next year. Their best competition was fur- nished by St. Charles in the St. Louis County Iunior High School Track and Field Meet. The Vikings were nosed out of first place by St. Charles who won by a margin of lV2 points. The most outstanding trackster was Leo Ladendecker, who won the half- mile, the lU0-yard dash, and placed third in the broad jump. Another point-getter was Billy Ehler, who won the 5O'yard and l0O'yard dashes for the seventh-grade team. Placing sec- ond in the meet, they triumphed over such stiff competition as Home Heights, Overland, Wellston, and Fairview. This was one of the many meets in which the team has placed either second or third or won outright, showing that Mike Riegert needn't have any sleepless nights worrying over material for the senior division. May 2, the team split a dual meet with U. Cityp winning the seventh- grade division, 59 to 31, and losing the eighthrgrade division, 61 to 3-. Charles Foster won five events for the seventh-grade team, taking first in both dashes, the hurdles, the high iump, and the broad jump. Leo Ladendecker again displayed his prowess by taking first in both dashes, and third in the broad jump for the eighth grade. Other winners were Bourner, Steimel, Starkey, Bier- man, and Roth. Normandy is proud of the effort these junior boys put forth and the time they spend on the track training to take their places in varsity com- petition. Early and rigorous practice means everything to the boy who wants to be a track star.

The teams home course is Nor- wood. The boys, however, have played qames at Meadowbrook, Ritenour's home course, and Crystal Lake, Clayton's home course. The matches of only sixteen holes are played after school, rain or shine. Teams play in foursomes, two from each school together. The team doesn't get much opportunity to pracf tice, but still the boys have devel- oped themselves into an efficient unit. 13.5, Page One Hundred Forty-Four Stalwart School Leaders Husky Fellows with Exciting "Boy, would I like to get into that club!"

"They were really all right! I don't believe l've ever seen more team- work and better organized squads during my years at Normandy. Those tournaments do no harm and a world of good." "Yep, I know. Since they are played between the different home- rooms they add variety and excite- ment to the daily grind of classes. lt was thoughtful of Mr. Art Shipherd to take the time and energy to or- ganize these sport programs for the students." "And don't think they don't appre- ciate it!" "You're not telling me anything I don't know. Each team plays hard to earn the pins which the winners get. l'd like to have one myself. Oh, say, Mr. Doyle's homeroom won the football clash, didn't it?" "Uh-huh! They rornped over Miss Pitney's gridiron men to the tune of 13-0 to snatch first place. That game was one of the best, too." "And then after that came the bas- ketball season. Mr. Ianssen's home- room was the victor at the end of the tourney." "There were some real thrills pro- vided on the gym floor during the basketball rounds. One of the big- gest was the Hi-Y-Champ game dur- ing assembly when Ianssen's group nosed out their opponents, 13-12. But l guess the victors' most important tussle was the one with Miss Pitney's homeroom for the championship. They won that round, 19-Q." "Then came volleyball. By the by, who did come out on top?" "Oh, didn't you know? I thought everyone knew that. Why, Mr. Doyle's group, of course. After it was over, their slogan was, 'It was a tough fight, but we won.' " "Softball finally wound up the school year. l do know that Koerner won that diamond deal. The score was 7-B." "All in all, the intramural season was quite impressive and gave a great amount of pleasure and satis- faction to everyone concerned." "Yepl You're right.

There are shouts of joy as one of the girls hits a home run in the first baseball game of the year. Baseball is one of the numerous activities offered by the athletic department. Ground-stick, ground-stick, ground' stick, and they are off after the ball in a cloud of dust. There are cries of joy intermingled with cries of woe as the ball gets by the goalkeeper and a point is scored. The girls are tired and dirty after a strenuous game of hockey, but they all agree it's a lot of fun. Ubiquitous shouts issue forth from the gym during basketball season. There is scuffling and stamping as the referee tosses in the ball. The sport is hailed by the girls at Norf mandy as their favorite. Although introduced to Normandy only last year for girls, golf has gained many new adherents. The girls play at Norwood, using their own equipment. Here Peggy shows Virginia how to begin her swing.

Every contestant is required to perform certain dances and routines. lf she shows ability and promise, she is asked to join the group. The judges ot these "tryouts" are the veteran members and Mrs. Schneider. At the May Pete, the girls exhibit their talent to the student body and community.

The picture presented by this group of Normandy Senior High School stu- dents is striking as they canter down the trail at the Chain of Rocks Park. For a nominal fee, every Friday for two full hours they roam on the beautiful grounds of the park. Al- though hampered in the Winter, in the autumn and spring months they make up for lost time as everyone appears each week. Miss Martha Tillman, sponsor of the club, is also an active participant. Fully enjoying the recreation in the fresh air and sunshine, the mem- bers this year have made Horseback Riding a very active club. It is open To Master Art of Riding to all senior high school girls who are interested and have the time. Thoughtful reflections of a typical member show ambition and prog- ress as she analyzes why she fell at that last turn. "Whops! the ground and l said hello just then in a most unpleasant manner. Oh, Well, the bumps don't matter as long as I learn to stay on this animal. I certainly hope when this year's over and vacation is here, I'll be just as adept in this art as Miss Tillman--well, maybe not as good as she is?-but anyway, per- haps, I won't look too bad as I Canter down the bridle path."

It is a tine pastime, and though tew be- come really expert, l believe every- one should know how to play." Throughout the whole year the spirit of competition runs high. Since every boy in the club has an equal chance to play, there is an excellent opportunity for comparison of ability and accomplishment among the boys. The club has an infallible system. When the members join in the seventh grade, they are required to pay a tee ot fifty cents. This fee pays tor everything, such as paddles, balls, and tables, for the three years that the members are in the junior high. After several months of practicing various shots, serves, and returns, the boys begin their annual tourna- ment, which lasts for the rest of the school year. Mr. Heuser arranges the matches so that every boy gets in plenty of competition. Fast and furie ous are the battles, and the iinal win- ners must be plenty good. Dick Houchens and Bob Haist emerged victors oi the double matches for this SGCISOH. T. E. Top Row: Johnson, I-louchens, Curtis, Ladendecker, Siegler, Britt, Haist, Sprinqli.

Crack! Crack! Crack! The steady tattoo of the Celluloid sphere reaches through the gym, as the enthusiastic members of the Senior Girls' Ping Pong Club beat out a steady rhythm, with the little white ball Under the watchful eye of Mr. Arwin Ianssen, who is the sponsor of this club, the girls learn the diffent methods of striking the ball in a manner which is graceful and easy to watch. The easy swing of the arm, the curve which the connection of ball and paddle generate, all are the interesting points to a game which has struck the country with such force that everywhere ping pong clubs have sprung up and leagues have been organized. As a result of the universal interest in this fast-moving game, Mr. lans- sen, in his sponsorship of the club, has made an active and fascinating game for those senior girls who are attracted by the movements which are necessary in starting the swing and following through. No doubt, if one is skillful enough, most of the sets will come to a triumphant close with the best player as the winner. These enthusiasts are continually figuring new strokes with which to amaze and defeat their opponents in home games. Participants can truth- fully tell to all who ask that they have loads of fun in their meetings every Wednesday in our big gym. Early in the year the girls practiced long and hard trying to put Mrs. lanssen's suggestions into practice. After a while they began to play matchesfsingles and doubles. Late in the last semester they plan to have a tournament to see who is really the most skillful player. Top Row: Carpenter, Cool, Hoffman, Dunne, Slattery.

Among the various steps practiced, the collegiate step is the most popu- lar, according to Bobby Bauersachs, one of the members of the group. But, however, the two-step is still an old favorite. The one hundred or more students that belong to this club didn't know how to dance at the be- ginning of the year, but you should see them now!

The spon- sors of the group recognize this need and instruct the pupils in etiquette of the dance. lt's true that it is more fun to know how to dance, and all the students try especially hard. After the mem- bers get acquainted, shyness dis- appears, and everyone is anxious to try out new steps and techniques. The club teachers, therefore, try to put across to their students cor- rect manners as well as grace and skill in movement. They are suc- cessful, and many shy boys and girls who formerly "hated" to dance are getting a big kick out of it and look forward to each club meeting. Aubuchon, Patrick, Baker, Uinbriqht.

What are the Boy Scouts? A. The Boy Scouts is an organ- ization of boys between the ages of 12 and l5. Its program ot "Strengthening and Invigorating Democracy" is designed to train the youth of our land towards more ettective service now, and lull par- ticipation as citizens later. Q. Who is the Scoutmaster? A. The Scoutmaster volunteers his services because he is inter- ested in boys. Q. What do you do in Scouting? A. Hiking, camping, outdoor Cooking, tire making, signaling, tracking, and trailing are some of the Scout's activities. In these the Scout learns to take care of him- self and to "Be Prepared" to help others. Q. l would like to get into Scout- ing, but l'm too old. A. A Person is never too old tor Scouting. There are units of Senior Scouting, Explorer Scouting, and Sea Scouting. He can go even further and be a leader, giving other boys the opportunity he had in Scouting. Q. ls Scouting expensive? A.

"Gallahad lanes," a ripping high school comedy, produced money for the coffers of the Senior Class, with help from the Dramatic Club. Experi- ence gained in this first play went far to making "Black Wings," a mystery, the high point of drama for the year. Experimentation in new fields re' sulted in the development of scenery by different lighting effects against a black background. Three one-act plays presented in this manner, "Heads, He Burns," a stirring drama, and "Overhead" and "Temptation,' comedies, rounded out the well- balanced season of dramatic activity.

"The question of whether or not to be an actor, playwright, director, stage designer, or costumer, ot course." Each ot these tields represents an important phase of dramatics. The most important is the acting or the presentation oi the play. The staqe show, however, must have a back- bone in order to be a complete suc- cess. The other tour divisions con- stitute the necessary elements. The directors discern and correct the mistakes ot the actors in their stage technique. The playwright, a Boards in Theatriccrls very important personage, writes the stories, bringing in the things that he thinks will make his work a hit. And last, but certainly not least, are the stage designer and costumer. These two make the production pleasing to the eye as well as add to its realism. And so, as Miss Louise Schmucker and Mr. Iohn Lake, sponsors of the Junior Dramatic Club, point out, everyone must work hand in hand to turn out the line productions ot which this club is capable. Most ot the club's time is spent in rehearsing one-act plays lor the entertainment of the members.

Although they are small, the model planes, as explained by Mr. Gillilan, Not with Wings of Wax illustrate main points of the real thing. Air castles about becoming an aviator are built by many boys while they build their intricate and detailed models. Perhaps their hopes will be realizedy they're getting off to a good start at any rate! Aviation is becoming more im- portant every day and these boys will not be left behind. While in high school, they will have laid the groundwork for an aviation career. At any rate, they'll know a lot about airplanes. L. B.

The solution? Nor! mandy Cafeteria! Hot food, well- balanced rations, low cost. It takes some real planning and efficiency to satisfy that many people. lf you should happen to be pass- ing Normandy around noon, you would see students running like mad to and from buildings. You might think, "My Goodness, where is the fire?" But they are only hungry stu- dents trying to beat fellow class- mates to the cafeteria line. They be- lieve in that old saying, "First come, first served." Some time later you can see them strolling leisurely back to class. They've had their lunch, but that's not all. Being an enjoyable, clean, refreshing spot, the cafeteria is nat- urally a pleasant meeting place for the students. For thirty minutes friends gather around the tables, and the conversation is loud and fast. New friends are made and troubles dissolve in the congenial, happy atmosphere. Besides serving food daily for the students, the cafeteria staff, man- aged so capably by Mrs. Woods, serves refreshments for all sorts of parties, banquets, and meetings dur- ing the year. B.

Boys and girls looking out of the school windows yell to friends as they clamber on waiting buses. The answer yelled back could be any number of places.

Students may not know these facts about our big orange buses, lout here are some of the many safety features: all-steel bodies, shatter-proof glass in win- dows and doors. Every bus driver regularly attends meetings to receive instructions about new safety rules and regulations. The following paragraphs picture the advantages our own bus system has given Normandy students. Rah, Rah, Rah! Sissf Boom! Bah! Frenzied screams coming from the throats of Normandy High School students cheering their athletic friends on to victory sometimes as much as l25 miles away from home fires. Ssshhllllf Loud whispers greet late students barging into the sacred lair of the pitcher plant at Shaw's Garden.

Maybe Fibber McGee and Molly stood right here in this studio! These few expressions of pleasure give, in addition to the regular courses, an enjoyment never experi- enced in our parents' days. In the past four years, Normandy has owned and operated twelve modern school buses, over twenty- two daily routes. In the many miles traveled with thousands of students riding the buses, there has not been a single accident resulting in per- Normandy Students Safely sonal injury. No other school can parallel the splendid service our bus system has rendered Normandy in special trips, and the regular trans- portation to and from school. The bus drivers in their neatly-pressed uniforms are symbols of the novel methods of education and the as- sured well-being of Normandy stu- dents during their presence on a Normandy High School bus. Mr. Lester Winder, the capable head of the bus system, must be given plenty of credit for his efficient handling of the school bus drivers' daily routine. E. C.

Reviewing the school year as she walked slowly home, Mary remem- bered that the Student Council accomplished more things than merely deciding upon matters of school policy. Scattered throughout the year were at least four excellent lyceum programs, covering such Various fields as aviation and deep- sea diving. Once a month students enjoyed congenial social contacts through the council-sponsored dances. At Christmas needy families in the district thanked the students for haskets filled with presents and food. All this through the efforts of our Council. Mary came to the conclusion that the work of the Senior Student Coun- cil was vital to the school and exceedingly well done under the guidance of the sponsor, Mr. Walter Bergmann.

Eugene Benoist blocked a punt for a safety and two points, and Schwegler and Aussieker each counted for another touchdown. Final score: 23-7. Normandy again defeats its ad- versary! Kirkwood falls! The Pio- neers held the hard-charging Norse- men back for one half, but nothing could permanently halt their winning streak. Two sets of sixs appeared on the scoreboard before the gun sounded. The fifth victory for the Red and Green came from Quincy. From a hard-battled, thrill-packed game Nor- mandy emerged stronger than ever. Pollard and Moroso both scored on passes, while Schwegler tabulated on a pass and a reverse with Aussieker doing the pass heaving. Quincy succeeded in pushing the pigskin over the line twice, but that wasn't enough. And then came the downfall! After three quarters of good, clean, breath- taking football, the coaches called the Normandy-University City game because of a misunderstanding. U. City took the game by two touch- downs to our one. Had the game continued, the outcome might have been different. No bad results from the defeat. The squad came right back and downed Maplewood for their sixth victory. The Blue Devils managed to push over one point-maker, but the Norse- men had two. Ioe McGovern, de- spite an injury, gave us one of our goals on a pass from Fred, who tallied another himself, to put the game in the bag. Wellston was the next victim to fall before the Viking onslaught. lt was Homecoming, and a royal one it was!

After intercepting a pass deep in Viking lands, Schweg- ler returned the ball into Iunior Billi- kens' territory. On the next play, Pollard caught a pass from Aussieker and romped the remaining distance for the only points in the game. St. Louis, the invincible, had been de- feated. When the last ball had been placed between the uprights, the Majormen emerged one of the best squads seen in many seasons on the Red and Green gridiron. But, best of all, most of the husky backs and linemen were juniors and will be with us again next year.

Then in the last few minutes before the gun could sound, Beau- mont ruined the perfect record of the quarter by defeating the Vikings, 34-26. Score-Vikings, 57 Opponents, 2. Third Quarter: Record unmarred! University City, Wellston, Webster, and Kirkwood fell before Mike's men as they charged over the court. The high point of the quarter was the conquest of Webster, who had handed the Vikings their first defeat. This time the fierce-attacking Norsernen accu- mulated 42 points to Webster's 22. A decisive victory! Fourth Quarter: The roaring Vikings met a stone wall in Desloge's quintet, who de- feated them, 33-18. Refusing to rest, however, Normandy took wins from Ritenour and Wellston and dropped one to Maplewood to end the game and season.
