This year the slaif of the 1943 Saga has endeavored to preserve in
pictures and in writing the outstanding events of the school year.
War years always bring a changeg therefore, in 1943, we emphasize
the part Normandy students are playing in this greatest of all conflicts.
This year, because of so many boys and girls entering front-line or home-
front service, the training which our students receive in high school has
become important on the battlefields of the world. However, the varied
activities of school life are primarily pointing to the time when all can
take their places in a peaceful world to serve humanity as best they can.
We have tried to show the many phases of the American hero's
training, and, il we have succeeded, our work has been worthwhile. Every
time you glance through the pages of this book we hope you will recall
the events of life at Normandy in 1942-43.

HE BOARD OF EDUCATION is to the Nor-
mandy School District what a general staff
is to an army. Led by Mr. Arthur G, Skelly,
its president, and Mr. Henry R. Bushman, the
vice-president, Mr. A. C. Rothenberg, treasurer,
and MLS. F. Liese, secretary, the Board of Educa-
tion plans and directs all moves for the beneht of
the district. The Board is the highest authority in
the school system, and hence it has the greatest
burden of responsibility in matters concerning the
schools that make up the Normandy District. A
tremendous amount of work is done by the Board,
with the single goal of providing the best possible
educational opportunities for Normandy residents.
The success of their work may easily bc seen by
viewing the high standard of excellence existing in
our schools. The brilliant work of the Board is
responsible for this. ive often take the fine efforts
of this group for granted, but a glance at other
school districts not blessed with such a capable
staff will show us how really fortunate we are to
have such men guiding the destiny of our district.
This year, through the efforts of our Board co-
operating with other county schools, Amendment
Number 1, essential to student welfare, was passed.
Another new development, the bus garage, was
erected and furnished with equipment by the direc-
tion of the board. Many more important duties
are carried out yearly by this efficient group. Some
of these duties include: night-school study, land-
scaping, part-time employment of students, and
college scholarships and financial aid for deserving
Normandy is especially fortunate in having a
Board of Education whose members believe in
combining the best methods of past educators with
the better trends in modern progressive teachings.
The result is a combination which produces the
One oi Normundy's fleet of twelve buses, which are housed in the new spacious garage provided by our Board of Education.

LASSES of the future American hero are conducted
at Normandy in a democratic manner. Student
opinions, debates, and discussions are encouraged,
while co-operative classroom participation is very popular.
This year there was necessarily a change in some courses.
Wartime brought in pre-flight, revised physics, radio code,
first-aid, and military drill in place of some less vital
studies. These new courses were enthusiastically received
by students who were anxious to prepare themselves for life
in a changed and changing world.
MSpecialization', being the keynote of 1943, more stu-
dents enrolled in the commercial, mechanical, academic, and
scientific courses instead of the heretofore popular general
course. This specializing in the student's chosen course
results in a deliberate and planned education, which is the
aim of all true democracies.
Exhibits showed Spanish students' handicrafts of the people
whose language they study and the geography of their lands.

C"' OREIGN languages have gone to War! Be-
cause of the interest centered on France and
her possessions, especially in North Africa
and America, French classes read material on
geography, resources, governmental policies, and
history of these areas instead of the usual literary
classics. Spanish courses, using the Armyis method,
concentrated on conversational Spanish as Well as
learning the songs, stories, and jokes of our
southern neighbors. Study of life and culture of
our Latin friends was emphasized.

Without some scientific knowl-
edge, a real grasp of ballistics is
impossible. It is easily seen that in War-
time science takes on extra importance. It
does not seem so abstract when we hear
every day of its actual and effective use.
However, high school sciences are an ex-
cellent basis for peace-time engineering, a
field, which in the reconstruction period
following the War, will be much broader
and more important than ever before.
Junior science is the initial science
course. It introduces to the mind the sci-
entific Way of thinkingfanalysis, cause
and result, trial and error. ln general sci-
ence this beginning is developed, and all
fields of science touched on. It is, in this
Way, a basis for any physics, chemistry, or

John Krablin, head of the lndustrial Arts

experience by employment in a suitable trade.
Students taking advantage of this course must
spend at least three hours a day in school, taking
three subjects, and three hours on their jobs. One
of the three subjects they must take is a class in

diploma by receiving one unit of credit for their
job besides the three credits for the three hours
they spend in school. Thus they earn the required
credit for graduation. Some of these boys are

OBERT CLARK was one of those talked-abcut
uniformed boys seen on the campus. Bob is taking
advantage of the Civil Air Patrol training course in
preparation for entering the Naval Air Corps. Another
member of Mr. Reid's homeroom who did a lot of apple-
polishing with uljieii was DOROTHY McGLOSHEN. But
she really didn't have to shine the old apple, because she
has a distinctive charm and personality. Dot danced in
the May Fetes and was seen at all Normandy dances.
ROBERT FINK took a particular liking for the lndus-
trial Arts Course, which he bas steadily followed. His
quiet and reserved character make him a valuable friend.
Mixing dancing and singing together has given dark-
haired VIRGINIA ROGERS a lot of things to do. She
holds the unique position of being chosen as the
uMadonna" in the annual Christmas production of L'The
Juggler of Notre Dame" for two consecutive years. As
a member of the Orchesis, she devoted time and energy
to her dancing. Virginia also found time to make very
good grades and ranked fourth in the class. 'fOom-pa-pa!
Oom-papal" That must be UDELL MOSS practicing on
his tuba. Udell has played this difficult instrument in
both the Band and Orchestra for three years. Another
stand-by of the Music Department is VIRGINIA HAGE-
MANN who plays the viola. Virginia is very interested
in music, having also studied piano, but her real ambi-
tion is to become a nurse.

Small LORRAINE BARTH is, in reality, big enough to
tackle the toughest commercial problem that may come
her way. She is now gaining invaluable training for
oflice work after high school. BOB REED has gone all
out for music, being in the Boys' Clee Club, Mixed
Chorus, Swingsters, and the Double Mixed Quartet.

Day Nursery. ROBERT BODLEY is another of the many
students who has found the Diversified Occupations
Course the thing which will be of the most use to him.
Another vocalist who has lent her Voice to the Glee
Club and Mixed Chorus for many a performance is tall,
eflervescent BETTY MAJOR. Betty's practical jokes and
ready laugh were present in all her classes. And now we
go from Major to Majorette, for that is just what we
will remember most about JUANITA DAVIS SCHMUCK.

many a math and science class, since they have been his
specialties. As a member of the Chemistry Club, Norm

like so many of this senior class, is planning on entering
some kind of defense work after graduation. During
her six years at Normandy HCin', has shown considerable
interest i11 science and was a member of the Biology
Club. BOB BOEHLOW, the treasurer of our senior

football, baseball and wrestling, and it follows naturally
that he is one of the five most popular boys.

highest ranking student in the class. A potential secre-
tary is MARY CAMPIONE, of whom the commercial
department speaks highly. Activities like bowling make
'iCappy" an all-around student. Varsity football and
soccer qualified LEWIS JOHNSON for the Letterman's
Club. We wonder how much "Red" had to do with
those crazy initiations. One of the favored few with a
fine voice is ,IACQUELINE KELLER, and vocal groups

extra time working in one of the local stores. The
Music Department claimed MARILYN SHOUSE as one
of its star singers. Marilyn's fine soprano voice will be
missed by the Mixed Chorus and Clee Club. She also
found time for girls' athletics-both volleyball and
basketball. Varsity Baseball, Basketball, Golf and Bowl-

Theater Orchestra and Norsernen, .Ioe had a well-filled

drawn by JOHN DAVIDSON. Johnny came to Nors
mandy from a city school but was admitted to the Art
Society immediately because of his artistic talents.
BEATRICE KEISKER was a competent, efficient helper
in Mr. Shouseis office. Bea's pleasantness and smile will
be missed next year when she will endeavor to seek an
office position. Being president of the senior class was a
big job, Init BILL STANLEY handled it well. Bill's
drawings are well known to the entire school, for they
have enlivened the pages of the Courier and Saga for
the last six years. His friendliness and intense interest

popular boy in the senior class. Any time he had left

the Hi-Y. Students who saw MARIE FREISE Walking
around mumbling to herself were slightly puzzled. but
later, when they discovered she had a lead role in
"Spring Feverf' the senior play, they understood. Marie
was second page editor of the Courier, in the honorary
Quill and Scroll and sang with the Senior Girls' Clee
Club. Though quiet and reserved, EARL WILSON was
one of the best Vikings on the gridiron. Earl's school
spirit and pleasant disposition made him one of the most

many friends. C0-captain ol' the basketball team was an
honor held by BILL lN'lI'Il,'l'l'lll. Bill's ability to tip that
ball into the hoop helped Norinandyis Vikings countless
times. He was also on the winning intramural football
team. "Never serious" is the best way to describe .IANH

Peg has Worked in many school activities: among them
are Student Council, Glee Club and Art Society. Blonde,
good-looking EUGENE WILLS was another who took
advantage of Diversified Occupation. Although Gene
drove the visual education truck for the Normandy
school, he managed to maintain high grades. LUCILLE
DOREY's black hair is known throughout the senior
class. Lucille should have joined a debating team, as
arguing is one of her strongest points.
CLAUDE Wll.KlNSClNls quiet manner masks a
friendly, intelligent boy. Claude is known for his gen-
eral class attentiveness. He is also one of the few boys
interested in commercial training. Dark-haired JOSE-

Student Council, president of the Hi'Y, circulation man-
ager and athletic editor of the Saga, and a member of

rounded out her activities by being a member of the
Orchesis. Tall WILBERT JUST was well liked because
ol his pleasant disposition and quiet bearing. Though
Vlfilbert was absent once a week to work, he maintained
above average grades. That diminutive girl who makes
all those witty remarks in our classes is JEANNE
MacCREADY. l'Mac" went out for basketball and vol-
leyball and has danced in the last three May Fetes. She
worked on the Saga Staff, too.
Another typist and home economies student is LOIS
JANE BECKHAM. Lois will be remembered lor her
black, wavy hair and pleasant disposition. Though
MARGARET LEVENE looks like a quiet girl, she is
really lively when you get to know her. lVlaggie's ehief
extra-curricular activity was the Bowling Club, in which
she was a prominent worker. DlCK MELl,.lS's high
scholastic rating enabled him to make the Senior Honor

ETTING acquainted with new faces,
new teachers, and new subjects is not
an easy job, but our wide-awake
Seventh-Grade Class has done a good joh of it.
The students adjusted themselves quickly to
their new surroundings and early started con-
tributing to the success of the school year.
This group has many outstanding musi-
cians, who will make names for themselves
in the school life. Among these prominent
students are Robert Graves and Jack lmmell,
who are members of the Boys' Choir, part of
the St. Louis Symphony's annual Bach Fes-
tival. Three violinists, Joanna Crawford, Ruth
Miller, and Shirley Robertson, made the
Senior Orchestra at the heginning of the year,

developed through high school athletics.

sports for the boys, but wrestling, tennis, and golf come in
for their share of popularity. Girls, too, have athletic
clubs. winning teams, class play-offs, and games with other

their chief activities, but again lesser sports, archery, tennis,

TARTINC off the season with a sparkling victory over
the Ritenour aggregation, the HBN team gridders
seemed headed for an undefeated season. Unexpected
power in the Vikings' next opponents, Maplewood, soon
squelched the hopes for a perfect record. Clayton, too, proved
too strong and went home on the long end of a 141--0 score.
When the season ended, the Normandy boys had won only
two contests, the Kirkwood game in addition to the Bitenour
contest. The picture was not discouraging, however, for the
team improved in working together, and they profited by
their mistakes. Being on the small end of the score didnit
mean our boys didn,t learn their football. They mastered
techniques and plays that will be useful ir1 their future playing
days. Besides these valuable lessons, sportsmanship and how
to play the game until the final gun sounds contributed to
Coach Aussieker was pleased with his gridders, and he sent
four of his players up to the varsity fGentner, Curtis, Ful-
bright, and Scott. A sure fire pass combination in Fulbright

LTHOUGH the B team cagers lost two of their first-
string players to the varsity squad, they succeeded in
breaking even for the season -- winning six games
and losing the same number. Mel Swyers and Don Kronsbein
were promoted after about half the season was gone, but Walter
McHugh and James Timlin filled the gap. Tom Barrett was
the all-round star, shining both in the defensive and the offen-
sive. His bell-ringing shots were the necessary winning margin
in many of the games. Charles Curtis, the Red and Green
center, provided the spark to the team, while Carl Radcliff was
a steadying inHuence in the clinches.
The fact that the last three games of the season were wins
for Normandy shows that the players were on the up-grade
and getting better every day. This late-in-the-season spurt bids
well for the beginning of next yearis team. Let the boys just
pick up where they left off, and we'll stay in the winning
column. Hopes are high that the vacancies left on the varsity
by graduating seniors will be capably filled by the B cagers.

Viking quintet, 35-30, the Trojans were hoping for
a 'Lrepeatf' The scoring was nip and tuck through
the whole game-first Normandy would lead, and
then Wellston would. This kept up until in the
last minute of play, when lVlelter was awarded two
foul shots and made them both good. The Wellston
cagers tried vainly to break the score of 26-25, but
the game ended that way, the Red and Green on top.
Don Kronsbein shared the spotlight with Bill
Melter for top honors. Don, only a ninth-grader,
with his left-handed shots led the Vikings to many
victories. Bill Melter, the consistent high-point
man of the squad, ended the season with 139 points
to his credit.
Bob Duncan, who will return to the team again
next year, was the long-shot artist. His uncanny
accuracy was the feature of many of the early sea-
son games. Overcoming a mid-season slump, Bob
came back to end in a blaze of glory with his seven
long shots record in the Ritenour game.

ment by our pepsters. Under their guidance stu-
dents are inspired to co-operate in presenting, with
the help of cards and special costumes, many de-
signs and formations that bring messages of
patriotism and good sportsmanship to the crowds.
Such entertainment during intermission periods
keeps crowds orderly and eliminates rowdyism.
Choosing the Cheer Leaders is entirely up to the
student body. Interested students sign up and per-
form in assembly for the school. After the try-
out, homerooms vote on the candidates, and the
nine receiving the most votes comprise the squad.
These nine then elect one boy and one girl as cap-
tains, and practice begins. Gymnastics, school yells,
and ideas are discussed and rehearsed. Each year
new yells are devised and taught to the student

early in the fall. Sometimes the new yells 'fcatch

dislocated a rib, and the match was stopped. Ster-

Pardue fought to two practical throws, but had both

in fourth with but six points. Boehlow, captain,
placed second in the 165-pound class, Bob Fuchs
and Sam Pardue grabbing thirds in their divisions.
Coach George Bruno is to be commended for his
excellent training of these boys. They have an art

a crowd of boys were developed into a wrestling

PURRED on by the pitching of Bob Boehlow
and the hitting of Larry Volo, Eddie Garri-
son, and Charlie Smith, a fine Baseball
Team took the diamond for Normandy this year.
The Vikings piled up an enviable record-winning
eight and losing two contests.
The Viking nine initiated the season by gaining
the nod over Curtiss-Wright, and in so doing
avenged the defeat we suffered last year. The Major-
men then ran up against a strong Blewett team. It
was a hard-fought contest, but when the game was
ended the Vikings had lost. The Normandy picture
was not altogether black, however, for the twirling
was promising and hitters were meeting the ball
well. Centerfielder Lee Bergmeier made some fine
fielding plays, one being a sensational diving catch
of a line drive.
The Jennings nine, the Vikings' next opponents,
ran into a Normandy team that was anxious to
regain its winning ways. Hitting was the deciding
factor in the contest, each Normandy player getting
at least one safety. The Vikings were beginning to
work smoothly and in a manner that gave promise
of things to come.
The following week found the Normandy nine
playing a confident Ritenour team. In this con-
test, the Vikings reached their peak of perfection.
Combining Bob Boehlow's one-hit twirling with
some fine hitting and fielding, the Vikings scored
a sparkling victory. By this time the Vikings had
established themselves as formidable opposition
for any team in the district.
Fairview was unfortunate in running up against
the Vikings at a time when they were playing flaw-
less baseball. The Vikings were still hitting the
ball well, Garrison was outstanding, hitting two
The Ritenour aggregation came to Normandy for
the second contest of a fine series of games. This
was a closer game than was the previous meeting,
but the Vikings emerged the victor by a two-run
Facing the Ritenour team for the third time in
three weeks, the Vikings were over-confident, how-
ever, for they garnered only two bingles. ln the
meantime the Ritenour team had hit the pellet sing
times. The Vikings continued to hit the ball, but
the Ritenour players were always there to field it.
When the Wellston Trojans invaded the Viking
diamond for the first time this season, they were
anxious to take away with them a victory. The
Normandy boys were just as determined to keep
them from winning. Wellston drew first blood
when they scored one run on two singles and a fly
to the outfield. The Vikings came back in their
half of the frame and pushed four runs across the
pay-off station. From the second inning on, the
Vikings were never to be headed, and when the
last out was made the Majormen were four runs
ahead. Eddie Garrison and Renard Benning were
the leading hitters in this encounter-Renard get-
ting two singles while Eddie was clouting a homer.
In a return encounter the Vikings again sub-
jected the Wellstonians to a defeat. Benoist, Butler,
and Boehlow did the hurling for the Majormen
with Benoist getting credit for the win. Charlie
Smith and Ed Garrison led the way with three
Facing the Fairview team in the last game of the
season, the Vikings came close to losing. Only a
five-run rally in the last frame saved them from
the depths of defeat. Dale Wray received credit
for the win, even though he threw only one pitch.
Although they did not have an undefeated sea-
son as they did last year, this year7s nine was one
of the best ever to take a Normandy diamond. One
of the main reasons for the fine Baseball Team
was undoubtedly the excellent guidance of Coach
,lim Major. His alert baseball mind was always
ahead of the play, and the raw recruits that began
the season were well-trained veterans by the end of

ACH fall morning before school, one could
see two homeroom grid teams fighting to
advance in the intramural tournament. Each
game was well played and hotly contested, for the
teams were very evenly matched. In the beginning,
twenty homerooms had aspirations to walk oii with
the coveted title. As the tournament continued,
however, eighteen of the teams fell by the wayside.
Only the Musgraves and the Crawfords remained.
Both of these homerooms had trounced all opposi-
tion, and both were confident of victory in the final
battle for the title.
The game proved to be the most thrilling of
the tournament. Both teams scored early in the
first half, but their defenses tightened, and they
fought into the fourth quarter in this seven-to-seven
deadlock. With minutes remaining in the game,
Bill Melter heaved the pigskin to Lee Bergmeier
for a touchdown. This score was enough to assure
the Musgraves of the game and the championship.
Yes, the Musgraves, a senior homeroom, had tri-
umphed after many a tough game. They had won
the plaque that will hang in their homeroom
through the years to come.

gether on our campus whenever there is any men-
tion of dancing. The OrchesisgNormandy's
Concert Dance groupg the four girls-the officers
of one of the school's most popular groups. Mem-
bership in the Orchesis is one of the honors most
avidly sought after by the Normandy girls. The
members are selected from the dancing classes by
Mrs. Schneider and the officers on the basis of their
past performances and their ability to pick up new
routines. From the time of their entrance into the
Orchesis until the close of school, there is a con-
tinual list of special programs to be given and
parties at the Shack and the girls' homes to keep
the new members busy.
By far the most impressive of these programs is
offered to the student body at Christmas time. At
this season each year, the Orchesis gives its master-
ful presentation of the 'fluggler of Notre Dame."
With girls from the dancing classes portraying the
silent, gray-robed monks and the Girls, Glee Club
lending musical background with '40 Divine Be-
deemern and 4'Ave Mariaf, this religious master-
piece is a beautiful and inspiring scene. Virginia
Bogers and Jacqueline Weakley were chosen for
the role of the Madonna, while Betty Westaver and
Sylvia Portmann enacted the part of the juggler in
the 1942 performance.
In the spring of the year the Orchesis reaches its
zenith of accomplishment. The elaborate corona-
tion of the most popular girl and boy of each grade
is combined with an intricate dance program to
form the May Fete.
This yearis May Fete was a review of the favorite
dances for the last six years. The May Pole Dance
was the feature attraction in 1938, when the seniors
were just finishing the seventh grade. In 1939,
Sleeping Beauty was the theme of the May Fete.
The Hunteris Dance was the outstanding selection
from this production. L'Tales From the Vienna
Woodsi' came next from the 19410 May Fete. Sylvia
Portmann, Dot Weidle, and Virginia Rogers did
the solos in the Waltz, and Marion Melton and
Jacque Reichholdt took the solos in the clap dance.
With the advent of War came the patriotic songs
and dances of the 1941 May Fete. lt depicted life
in the North, South, East, and West. The dances
which were recreated this year were of the SouthA
two Negro spirituals, 'Tlallelujahi' and uLament,,,
with the solo done by Betty Westaver. A patriotic
number was also selected from this May Fete. Lola
Gray did an acrobatic tap to the music of lrving
Berlin's 6'C0d Bless America."
The 1942 May Fete, Hlithapsody in Blueff was

"As Time Goes By" our life at Normandy was
the favorite of all time. Betty Westaver, although
a member of the new Saga Court, resumed the lead-
ing role in this production-the same part she held
last year. A special arrangement of three South
American songs was done by Mr. Guenther for the
1943 contribution to the May Fete.
The coronation was not the usual solemn affair.
As the most popular boy and girl in the seventh
grade walked up the aisle, the song that was most
popular in 1938 was played. An important event
from that year was retold, along with a host of
slang expressions the crowd was using. This pro-
cedure continued until the present year and the
entrance of the Saga Queen.

To what does Normandy owe these enjoyable
entertainments? Perhaps we have been fortunate
enough to be blessed with girls who are gifted with
outstanding ability in dancing. But such perfection
cannot be attributed entirely to this, because under
these conditions the same high standard of dance
could not continue to be maintained. We, who have
watched the progress of the Orchesis for the past
few years, lay a great deal of the credit at the feet
of Mrs. Edward Schneider. Mrs. Schneider, as
director of the Orchesis, has accomplished a mar-
velous feat in her expert handling of 1Yormandy's
dancing girls. She has not only developed a group
that is the very epitome of grace and poise, but she
has made the Urchesis one of the outstanding
groups of its kind in the state.
Through her untiring efforts, coupled with the
energy and enthusiasm of the girls she works with,
the faculty and student body here at Normandy
have witnessed really fine dance programs and
have spent many enjoyable hours in assemblies. To
Mrs. Schneider and the Orchesis we can sincerely
express our gratitude for a difficult job well done.

hockey varsity this year was unable to play inter-
school games. Nevertheless, it was the belief of
close observers that the record of this team would
have been very impressive if they had been given
an opportunity to demonstrate their ability.
Basketball came next, and play was moved from
the hockey field to the hardwood. After many
gruelling class games and intramural clashes, the
varsity was selected. Wellston and Ritenour were
the only opponents of this group, and the Nor-
mandy girls showed themselves to be very capable
when they defeated the opposition in two of the
three games played. Twelve girls received the red
and green MN" for their part in these games.
Along in April enthusiasm ran high in the senior
school as the volleyball season got under way with
a bang. Varsity hopefuls waited patiently for the
big moment when the "cream of the cropi' would
be chosen. When the announcement was made,
there were thirteen very happy girls, who later
proved they were deserving of this honor by defeat-
ing Wellston's net representatives in both games
played. Moreover, the volleyball varsity took the
measure of the faculty uvolleyersw when they met,
thus combating the defeat handed the chosen bas-
keteers by the teachers.
To become a member of a varsity squad takes
hard work and plenty of pep. Beauty was thrown
to the four winds as these girls took their athletics
seriously and compiled a very impressive record.
But these sportswomen had their fun, too. Resumed
this year was the initiation which girls who made
a varsity team must undergo. If the initiate went

URE signs that the Junior G. A. A. is going
at top speed are sudden bursts of activity
in the junior gym or on the athletic Held
the year around.
ln the fall, the athletic fields are frequented twice
a week by young speedball enthusiasts. When snow
begins to fall over the countryside, basketballs are
taken from the stockroom, and one of the most
popular sports of the year is ushered in. The par-
ticipants are taught all the techniques of the game
by their able sponsor, Miss Norma Kissner. It is
in this way that future varsity material is trained.
Volleyball is the next on the docket. No sooner
are the nets up than eager girls enter into exciting
games enthusiastically. Spring brings the cry of

quick to respond with their softballs and bats. Thus
the activities of the Junior G. A. A. are brought to
a close for another year. ln each oi the four sports,
the girls get excellent physical and mental training.
Physically they become fit, and mentally they learn
to play the game and take it.

HE JUNIOR GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIA-
TION boasts one of the largest memberships
of any club in the school. Composed of girls
in junior high who are interested in sports, the
G. A. A. carries on its activities throughout the
entire school year.
Active participation in sports builds strong
bodies and healthy mindsf an important factor in
any country preparing for the future. An early
knowledge of leadership and good sportsmanship
is necessary in the molding of a good citicn---a
citizen that will help preserve the institutions now
being fought for. These girls are getting training
that will aid them when they are confronted with
the arduous tasks they will face after graduation.
NTRAMURAL basketball provides fun and
frolic for the girls of the junior high school.
The teams are chosen in the homerooms alter
each student has proved her ability to play well.
The homerooms then begin a basketball tourna-
ment, which Miss Kissner handles. One homeroom
plays another until all but two have been elimi-
nated, and they, in turn, play for the championship.
There are separate tournaments for the seventh,
eighth, and ninth-grades. Each homeroom must
lost two games before it is completely eliminated.
It must have been a good ball to make
her swing like that.
Basketball is one of the most popular games
played by the students of the junior high school.
This game could hardly be called an easy one be-
cause girls must have a great deal of stamina in
order to participate and come through with a
victory for their homeroom.
The hard playing and pep and enthusiasm of
these basketball fans are highlights of junior school
activities. These girls should make excellent mate-
rial for senior high class teams and varsities, where
they will again get the chance to show their prowess.

LOUD applause greeted the fifty students who made
the Senior Honor Society, as they walked down the
aisle of the junior auditorium on June 4. The pupils
who attain this high honor deserve it, for they have worked
hard during their three years in the senior high. Besides work-
ing diligently in all their classes they have gone out for sports,
Saga, Courier, music, dramatics, and other extra-curricular
activities. To gain their required points in activities they haxc
been elected class officers and student council ofiicers. Perfect
attendance at school also gains a few points. It is plain to
see that a member must be an all-around student. The oflicers
of the Senior Honor Society are chosen from those who made
the society in their junior year. This year's officers are presi-
dent, Peggy Pettigg vice-president, Dewaine lVlcCumber: sec-
retary, Peggy Rathert, and treasurer, Blanche Stoddard.
Every year the students look forward to the initiation, which
takes place in the auditorium. An impressive candle-lit circle
furnishes the only light and gives the entire program an awe-
some effect. Each otlicer gives a speech on one of the require-
ments of the society, and there is always a distinguished
speaker who has an interesting talk. The honor students are
then presented with a pin which is recognized all over the
United States, for this is a national organization. It is easy
to see that to become a member of the Senior Honor Society
is one of the highest honors that can come to a student at
Juniors do not have to wait until they are seniors to work

citizenship. The requirements are not quite as stiff as those

ln former years, the Junior Society has had an elaborate
initiation followed by a banquet. But this year, because of
the war and transportation difiiculties, they have decided to
have their initiation during an assembly. To the young junior,
making the Honor Society is a goal achieved which cannot bc
equated in the junior school. Officers are president, Carol
Baldwin, vice-president, Dot Jones, secretary, Shirley Edes,
treasurer, Alice Hundley.
Normandy is a better school because these boys and girls
have produced the work necessary to become honor students.
Without their co-operation and interest there would he no
athletic teams, there would be no publications, there would be
none of the added activities that make a school and its life
the happiest days of all.

HIS is our Saga-a pictorial review of life at Nor-
mandy, showing every phase of school life-sports,
social life, and student activities. This year it is
especially valued because it is a pictorial monument to the
American hero, the boys and girls in the service of our country,
both on the battlefronts and on the home front. We hope it
will form a link between our school and our graduates who
will soon be in the service. ln the years to come whenever
you pick up the ,43 Saga may you be reminded of all the
incidents that made school life at Normandy the happy, care-
free time that it was.
The Saga naturally requires a great deal of work, but, under
the excellent direction of Miss Mary Pitney, the staff very ably
accomplished the thousands of details necessary. After school
on many an afternoon, the Saga Hoiiicen is filled with gay,
hard-working staff members, striving to make your book a
success. It is not the work of a few weeks, as you probably
know. Work is started at the beginning of the year and con-
tinues until the book Hgoes to pressw in the spring, with a
sigh of relief by all concerned. But all the work needed to
produce this book is worth the finished product-a Saga we
hope you will be proud of.

by Mr. Darrell Joachim. is playing an important
part in building the ideal American boy and girl
and in keeping up the morale on the home front.
Most of us enjoy popular music, but we are all
learning to appreciate and really enjoy the good
music that our Music Department is giving us.
This year the Band has made many public
appearances. It marched in the Navy Day Parade,

and presented numerous assemblies here. Aug-
menting its fame also was its line presentation in

of the junior high students want to become meni-
bersg however, few are able to reach the high stand-
ard of the group. It has been Mr. ,loachim's policy
to seat the musicians in order of their proficiency.
The better players are seated nearest the conductor,
and they are called 'lprincipalsw in their section,
occupying 'gfirst seats?
Among the outstanding members are Walter
Thayer and Josephine O'Dell, both of whom re-
ceived certificates at the University City Festival.
We were, indeed, proud that two of our own pupils
received such awards. Of course, the chief aim of
all the musicians is to become the concert master.

WING bands are popular in any school, and
Normandy's Norsemen come in for more
than their share of popularity. Patriotism
is their theme and purpose, patriotism, the reason
for reorganization this year.
Ten years ago the first of Normandy's swing
bands came into existence and chose a name that
would correlate with Normandy's adopted Norse
ancestry. For three years they rehearsed during
club periods, played for school dances, and enjoyed
universal popularity. When the problem of paying
students to play at dances broke up the group, it
became an outside organization under a different
name and finally dissolved completely.
Mr. Lawrence Guenther had a very delinite rea-
son for resuming rehearsals this year-to reduce
war tension by playing music purely for relaxation
and enjoyment. Music of the right kind is an eX-
cellent morale booster- that7s his idea.
Before long, another patriotic opportunity pre-
sented itself-war bond and stamp drives. Mr.
Guenther's plan for war stamp admission to Norse-
men assemblies was the school's first concentrated
effort along that line. Thereafter war bonds and
swing band made a team that clicked. No drive was
complete without a Norsemen assembly to climax it
Versatility is another trait of this group, lor they
are required to play a variety of music for a
variety of occasions. Their repertoire must include
sweet music and hot music, patriotic numbers and
novelty tunes, brand-new hits and old favorites that
are always popular. Many of the members play
several instruments. ln fact, Director Guenther
alternates between saxophone and clarinet with an
occasional viola solo thrown in. When he takes a
solo, you know you're going to hear the best.
The vocalist is an integral part of a band, and
Marie Venverloh ably lives up to her role, proving
herself as versatile as the rest in varying moods
and tempos. The Swingsters frequently lend their
support as well as their arrangements, and HThe
Swingsters and Marie" means some really Hneata'
vocals are forthcoming. lVlr. Crawford, too, often
sings with the group, specializing in popular light

of Mr. Lawrence Guenther, offered music training
to juniors. The goal of a junior instrumentalist is
to belong to the Senior Concert Orchestra. Students
know by working hard they may make their goal,
this thought spurs the juniors on.
The orchestra performed at the Annual Music

high commendation. Their other appearance was

ERE is an organization to which Nor-

pridegthe Senior Orchestra! Throughout
the year, the Orchestra produces a never-ending
flow of fine musical entertainment. The selections
range from the classic to the modern, including
such varied Works as Francliis monumental HD
Minor Symphonyw and Ferde Grofe7s HMardi Gras
Suitefi All are played under the eXpert baton of
Mr. Lawrence Guenther.
For the many years that Mr. Guenther has been
director of this group, he has always produced an
orchestra of high symphonic quality. Mr. Guenther
is especially fitted to understand the problems of
the various players, since he himself is a capable
performer on most of the instruments which are
found in the Orchestra. The smooth manner in
which the Orchestra performs is a tribute to the
high musicianship of its conductor.
This year the Orchestra sponsored a umusical
good-will tour" to Wellston High School, where
they were enthusiastically received and invited to
a return engagement.
Here at school, the students, faculty, and parents
were entertained by the Orchestra in several assem-
blies and P. T. A. programs. The music was selected
for its general popular appeal. Some of the fea-
tured compositions were 'clVlardi Gras,', Gershwinis

excellent cellist. and this year she was elected stu-

performed in public under the direction of a stu-

of the organization and the Orchestra's candidate
for St. Pat's Queen.
But let it not he thought that our Orchestra is
composed ol individualists. The symphony or-
chestra is one instrumentfan instrument of many
voices, it is truefhut, nevertheless, it is one com-

individual is subordinated to the welfare and har-

Not only have the girls gained renown for their

surrounding communities, but they have won con-
siderable praise throughout the state. Dressed in
rose-colored jumpers and white blouses, the girls
received an MAN rating at University City at the
musical festival. Because of the girls, neatness and
uniformity, they make a splendid appearance. The
girls excel in tone quality, interpretation, musician-
ship, enunciation, and phrasing. The girls in the
Clee Club are to be highly commended for their
fine showmanship and the willingness with which
they practice and work.

Such a conversation might precede any of the
several programs provided by the Boys, C-lee Club
throughout the year. The boys are always enthusi-
astically received, because their vocalizing equals
their fine appearances.
The man responsible for the achievements of
this organization is Mr. Hadley Crawford. But
one man cannot make a glee club, co-operation,
however, on the part of each member can, and
thatis the keynote in this onefco-operation. The
boys are in the club of their own choosing, because

slogan of Mrs. Mary Franklin, director
of the Senior Mixed Chorus. ln spite
of practicing ditliculties, the chorus Won the Cer-
tificate of Merit, the highest award given at the
Double Mixed Quartet wins praise at Music Festival.
Greater St. Louis County Music Festival in Uni-
versity City this spring. They received a perfect
score in tone quality, interpretation, showmanship,
diction, artistic effect, intonation, and special com-
mendation on their appearance. They were also
complimented on their choice of selections.
Meeting only two periods a week, this organiza-
tion has been able to build a repertoire of fine
music and excellent literature, including selections
of Russian music, those in madrigal style, contem-
porary American music, ballads, and many sacred
selections. These selections from the Russian group
were sung a Capella at the contest, they were
'4Cherubim," by Bortniansky, and Wllhe Nightin-
galef, by Tschaikowsky.
Appearances outside of school have been cur-
tailed because war restrictions limited possible
transportation. Many of the members are engaged
in work after school hours, and scheduling of pro-
grams was extremely difhcult.
Evidence of the popularity of this group is
obvious from its rapid growth. It has doubled in
size this year, and Mrs. Franklin forsees an even
larger enrollment in the chorus next year.

UST what is the Hi-Y? Well, it's a brother-

tian Association. A unique pin is the sign
of membership. lts shape is a red triangle, repre-
senting red-blooded service and growth in body,
mind, and spirit. On this background appears a

the club is to create, maintain, and extend through-

Meeting every other Monday night, the boys,
under the capable guidance of Mr. William Chri-
tian, debate and decide on important issues of the
school. The democratic spirit for which the club
stands is displayed as Mike Wightman, the presi-
dent, calls for discussion and the members argue
the pros and cons.
To add variety to the meetings, the boys invite
prominent men from the community to act as guest
speakers. On one occasion, Mr. Small, formerly
an aeronautical engineer and now With Union
Electric, spoke on electricity.
Not only the administration, but other school
organizations come to the Hi-Y for help in putting
over this idea or that. Among the services that
the club has rendered are the planting of shrubs
to beautify the campus, aiding and iinancing the
Service Section of the Saga, and collecting food-
stuffs to put in Christmas baskets for the needy.

N THIS year of war, chemistry and physics
have special significance because men
trained in these fields are needed by our
armed forces. With this idea in mind, the sponsor
of the Chemistry Club, Miss Ernestine Long, con-

This club has varied activities, but some of the
more important ones were field trips, visiting other
clubs, and attending lectures at Washington Uni-

Driving the huge, orange buses is no easy job. Students wait ior the buses to arrive. Mr. Torres comes in to pick up his pusseno
64 OMETHIINC new has been added!" Yes, Thus, we can see that the sole concern of the bus
indeed, something new has been added
to Normandy High School. Of course,
weire speaking of the long-awaited, badly needed
bus loading station, which was oflicially opened at
the beginning of this school year and is now used
daily for the transportation of seventeen hundred
boys and girls, coming to and going from school.
The completion of the station by the Works
Progress Administration was another example of
how the bus division of the school continues plan-
ning for the safety and convenience of the pupils.
Formerly, the students were obliged to wait in the
parking space behind the main building or in the
old gymnasium, which was hardly suited to hold
the large lines of bus riders comfortably. Safety
was another factor to be taken into consideration,
since the exposed position of the pupils waiting on
the parking ground was not very secure from pass-
ing cars. The erection of the new loading station
solved both problems. Now, students may wait
in complete comfort, protected from both the
weather and the danger of accidents. All will agree
that the station was a welcome addition to our
administration is to provide for the safe and
efficient transportation of the students of our high
school. To attain this end, thirteen powerful,
modern buses are used morning and afternoon.
However, the war has caused limitations in the bus
service as it has in all other service organizations,
In the past, the orange and black buses could be
seen all over the St. Louis area carrying Normandy
pupils on visual education trips and other special
activities, the necessity for mileage rationing has
caused all such trips to be cancelled for the dura-
tion. Now the buses may be used only for the neces-
sary trips, getting the boys and girls to and from
school. So, the war conservation of rubber pro-
gram has curtailed the quantity, but certainly not
the quality of the bus service. On the runs it has
been permitted to continue, the bus service has been
as efficient and safe as it ever has been.
Another problem caused by the war is the man-
power shortage. This situation has caused great
difficulties for Mr. Lester Winder, the superintend-
ent of transportation, and his staff. ln an inter-
view, Mr. Winder disclosed that the bus department
has lost two-thirds of its drivers, leaving only four
Page One Hundred Twenty-Six
Zag five arefuf g an ML
regulars on the runs. This gap might have greatly
hampered the transportation program had not re-
placements been found in the Normandy teaching
staff. The teachers who have taken over buses have
shown themselves to he as capable behind a steer-
ing wheel as before a blackboard, and they are to
be complimented on the fine way they have taken
the places of those drivers who are now engaged in
the war effort. borniandy students may consider
themselves lucky to have faculty and bus depart-
ment co-operating so successfully and so resource-
fully. The teacher-drivers have taken on a dilhcult
job and have performed it in a manner which
deserves nothing but the highest praise.
lvhen he was interviewed, Mr. Wiinder announced
that the future of the buses was in doubt. The
chances are that the government regards school
transportation as essential but may provide extra
duties for our buses. such as carrying war workers
to important work projects. But, as Mr. Vllinder
said. any speculation at this point would he nothing
but guesswork, and we shall just have to wait and
see what plans the government may decide upon
for making use of Normandyis excellent bus service.
This well-built station was erected by W. P. A. labor and
stands northwest ot' the school.
The important function the buses play in Nor-
mandy High School may be seen by listening to a
few conversations around the school buildings. All
are bound to contain such remarks as:
uYou can give them to me on the bus."
'cDon't stay too long, or you'll miss the bus."
ul was looking for you at the bus station."
i'Have you asked your bus driver about it?"
These comments from the students show the
essential part the buses play around the school.
They perform an invaluable service for all who
live at any distance from the school, and what
would happen if we were forced to do without them
is unthinkable. It is almost impossible to conceive
of Normandy without its shiny buses and skilled
drivers making possible the advantages of educa-
tion to many in such a large area. lf a poll were
taken on the organization most valuable to the
school, you could do far worse than to put your
money on the bus service. The ever-faithful drivers,
the capable administration, and the first-class equip-
ment-all these go to make the Normandy bus
service the pride of the school.
"Show your ticket" is the demand ot all bus drivers
as students board the buses.

Scene: Normandy High's Cafeteria.
Time: Last lunch period.
BOY comes dashing into the cafeteria,
hastily throws his books on a table. Per-
spiration trickles down over his worried
face. With frantic eyes he scans the room. He has
been delayed in his last class and is twenty minutes
late to lunch. He looks for food, but there is none.
He sees containers which had been filled with meat,
potatoes, and delicious egg plant now standing
empty. His mind is occupied by a single thought:
Will I get any food?
Our friend need not worry. Let him but look
in the back of the room, and he will find women
glad to make a special lunch for him. Always
helpful, always courteous, always willing to serve
the school -these are the cafeteria women! They
are as much a part of school life as the 3:30 bell
and are just as indispensable.
Ably assisting these women in performing their
daily duties are a group of boys selected by Mrs.
YVood, the manager of the organization, to do the
nominal labor required for the smooth functioning
of the cafeteria. Among their many duties are
washing the dishes, cleaning trays, replenishing the
supply of silverware and working at the ice cream
and candy counters. Their work is a proper com-
plement to the work of the women, and the result
may be seen in the smiling faces of Normandy stu-
dents enjoying the delicious food.
Equally important to our high school is that
group of men without whose unceasing effort school
life would be diflicult and uncomfortable. They
are little praised, and their work is often taken for
granted, but both students and faculty will admit
that as a unit in our school, the custodians are
second to none.
The object of their job is to keep our western
hilltop a place of which we can all be proud. All
through the year the custodians, under the direction
of Mr. Ray Talley, may be seen doing their many
jobs, sweeping the halls, cleaning the windows,
mowing the lawn, keeping the walks free of ice,
and performing the many specialized duties neces-
sary for the welfare and security of the school.
lt is hard to imagine that such a small body of
men can do so much so efficiently. The high
Page One- Hundred Twenty-Eight
quality of their work may easily be seen by a glance
at the cleanliness and order existing in our school.
As a result of the war, their ranks have been
diminished, but judging from the results of their
labors one could never tell it. Those who are left
with us have worked longer hours and performed
more duties so that school Work can move along
as smoothly as ever. No complaints from them
for they are doing their part to keep our buildings
clean and in repair and our campus beautiful.
To the custodians, Normandy students should
be ever grateful. Student body and faculty join
in a great yote of thanks to these men. If Normandy
were to issue medals to those who aid the most,
surely one would go to the custodians, Mfor dis-

UR MOTHERS play an important part in our school
life just as they do in our home life. The Mothers,
Club is well known for its co-operation with Nor-
mandyis organizations in contributing money for the promotion
of education. The Saga staff is one of these groups and will
always be grateful for this assistance.
The third Weclnesday of every month brings many of our
mothers to school with us. The junior auditorium is the scene
of these gay meetings and the setting for many a speaker.
After their business meeting they are entertained by many of
the same organizations as the Parent-Teachers' Association.
But donit let us lead you to believe that it is all play and
no Work. Sponsoring a welcoming tea for the mothers of
incoming seventh-graders at the end of the year and a card
party during the year, they are kept busy.
Besides the entertaining and educational features of the
programs they have, there's the big item of social fellowship
and the exchange of ideas among the mothers.
All these activities make for better understanding between
mothers and their children. Wleire all for the Mothers' Club.

EINC one of Normandyis most helpful organizations is
the reputation of the Parent-Teachers' Association. lts
monthly meetings have as their purpose the discussion
of the students' problems. An attempt is made to promote the
welfare of the young people in their home, church, and school
After the business part of the meeting is dispensed with,
some sort of entertainment is furnished by different organiza-
tions composed of the students, such as the Clee Clubs,
Orchesis, the speech classes, and the Physical Education De-
partment. lmmediately following the program of the evening,
refreshments are served in the cafeteria.
Perhaps the one event that makes the memory of the P.-T. A.
indelible ill the minds of the students of Normandy is the
Christmas Dance. Annually, they have been its sponsors, and
Santa Claus, the star of the evening. The money collected
from this dance goes to a relief fund for needy families in the
Normandy district and to establish a scholarship reserve from
which worthy graduates may borrow to continue their educa-
tion after they leave Normandy. Many students have benefited
from the money earned at this dance.

Mr mi f...
ORMANDY students were very
active in various drives to help
win the War. Proof of this is
found in the success of the Scrap and Bond
Drives, the Victory Corps, and in the win-
ning of the Schools-at-War flag.
The Scrap Drive commanded our first
efforts. The school went over the top with
a total of sixteen tons of scrap. Mr. Schill's
homeroom led with 3,089 pounds. The
spirit of patriotism prompted the students
to share this task.
Probably the most important of the stuf
dents' War efforts was the Bond Drive. Mr.
Bergmann originated the idea of promoting
the homerooms according to the bonds
bought. A military basis was established
for recognition of the homerooms. The
rankings ranged from private first class
for 35100, to a four-star general for 35,000
At the present writing, Mr. Schrader's
lieutenant-general homeroom is the highest
ranking. This rank was achieved by pur-
chasing 3S1l,047.55 worth of bonds and
stamps. Miss Schmucker's homeroom de-
serves particular mention because her room
was the only leader in both the Scrap and
Bond Drives. As the Saga goes to press,
the total Bond and Stamp sales for the
entire school is S,i1L7,325.60.
The Victory Corps was slow in getting
started. Officers have been selected, and
big things are planned for next year.
Last but not least was the Schools-at-War
Flag. To have the honor of possessing this
Hag, a school must have ninety per cent of
its students buying war stamps. Normandy
is the only St. Louis County school to have
this flag proudly flying oier the campus
because ninety-four per cent of the students
have bought stamps each month.

EMORIES of school life at Nor-
mandy came flooding to our
minds as we glance through our
Sagas from years gone by. The familiar
scenes depicted in the numerous campus
shots bring thoughts of many happy
moments spent beneath Normandyis beau-
tiful trees. Here, students congregated for
bull sessions of that last date, exams,
themes, new faculty members, classes, the
next football game, and other pertinent
subjects. Our campus, of which we are
justly proud, has certainly provided much
restful relaxation and a general meeting
place during lunch hours and after school.
At the suggestion of the dances, for
which Normandy is famous, we naturally
remember the queens first. The Normandy
students find this way of honoring a few
of its outstanding girls. What a thrill is
experienced when the gym becomes quiet,
and the master of ceremonies steps forward
to announce the girl who has been chosen
to reign as queen! We'll never forget the

Athletics, too, plays a big part in our
Normandy memories. Sometimes we cheer
undefeated teams, sometimes not. But
whether they are good or fair, we cheer
them just the same. The team members
are worthy of the pride we have in them,
for they give something indispensable to
school life. The hard work they put into
these sports builds not only strong bodies
but strong characters as Well.
Both on and off the campus, Normandy
students are athletically inclined. The many
clubs sponsored by the school stimulate
interest in such outside activities as horse-

lTH the War hitting closer and
closer to our own country, state,

greater need for moments when we can
turn from the thoughts of the World and
relax. Plays offer us some ol these
moments which we can enjoy.
Under the leadership of lVlr. John
Torres, dramatics has been expanded as a
school activity of the first rank. This year
dramatic students gave two plays for the
student body and a one-act farce for the
Mothers' Club. 'Tootloosefl given in

the adventures and troubles of four young
boys and girls during their mother and
