From far-Hung battle- fields to homefront service, these men and women are doing their utmost to preserve our American way of life.

Z9 og am of F pa afizfn zfrmandy flax Succeedm 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 graduates. 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. will-mliiiflvcl, SllI'1'0SSl'Lll lypm- ul sluclvnl aSSm'ial,Pfl willi Lliv iX0l'llliUlCly Dislrivl.

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. chzflasfic life 1 Page Twenty-One Exhibits showed Spanish students' handicrafts of the people whose language they study and the geography of their lands.

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. German students prepared to use the language Use of the card catalog and reference books IS essential in the senior high English literature courses to read documents of scientific knowledge and the great German classics banned in Germany today. Ancient Roman conflicts, as studied in Latin, can never seem dull While our forces are lighting on the same battlefields and where our generals face the same problems of strategy and shipping that Caesar and Antony had to solve in their day. A nation that is to be a post-war dominant power must equip itself with the proper tools for eo- operaling with its brother nations, and language is one of the rnost important tools.

Sex with and eighth-grade social science and ninth- grade citizenship pave the way for broader studies of the human forces that make up the world.

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.

Miss Elizabeth Foulds and Mr. Felix Serafini teach these classes. Enibryo electricians can take electricity or Morse code. Electricity, under Mr. Thomas Rapp, deals with fundamentals ol that field. lVlorse code is a course of telegraphy in which, under lVliss Joanna Barnes, direction, students learn how to send and take international lVlorse code. Both are special war courses.

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 personal problems, dealing with the problems Bob Fink. who works as cr mechanic. lubricates cz car from the oil pit. workers meet on their jobs and their personal prob- lems at home and in school. Mr. Krablin handles this class himself. Diversified Occupations students earn their 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 doing their bit in our fight for victory by Working in War plants. They hold down positions as spot Welders, sheet metal workers, bench metal workers, and shear hands. Others are employed by grocers Page Thirty Bob Martin records the numbers and cost ot the boxes at Woolworth's in Pine Lawn.

With a ready laugh and a cheery uHi,7' Charlie is a great favorite with everyone. One girl whom I should like to have known better is MILDRED FRISBY. Her commercial work has prepared her splen- didly for a good job after school days are over and she's making her way in the world. Whois that with Marjorie Lynch? Why, it's LOR- RAINE OLSEN, of course. You r'an't mistake those laughing eyes and ready smile. Through all her six years at Normandy, Lorraine has made many friends. DORIS HERMLE hasn't been with us all through school, but she has made quite a name for herself in the Music Department and spent much of her time after school with the Horseback Riding Club. A member of the Art Society, she helped in all extra art projects. NADYNE MATHIS has certainly stepped into the swing of things during the short time she has been here since her arrival from West Virginia at the beginning of the year. Rank- ing tenth in the class, she is sure to succeed in her chosen career. One of the outstanding vocalists of our class was MARIE VENVERLOH. Marie has sung with the Glee Club and Mixed Chorus for three years. You heard her sing with the Norsemen, too, at the Jive Assembly for the Bond Drive.

In 1943 John was the state champion in the 120 pound class, but he also took part in tamer things such as the Boys, Clee Club. Friendly DORIS MELLIES is known to both her teachers and classmates as a most congenial student. Doris isn't quite sure yet whether she wants to be a nurse or an office worker, but she will do well in either. A well-rounded personality is RICHARD CROSS. He has been a hall guard and student council representative for the past two years, was a member of the Junior Academy of Science and Chemistry Club and took part in Hi-Y activities. In addition to his numerous Fine speeches in class meetings, "Deacon" was instrumental in getting advertising for the Saga. MADELINE ZIM- MERIVIAN was a help to the Courier by reporting news in an interesting manner. Madeline is preparing for eniom re Inoue! f work in the business world by studying commercial sub- jects. Her pleasant disposition and friendliness should help her in any career. This year's class will have another angel of mercy in LORRAINE RICKELMAN, who plans to enter the nurs- ing profession. Lorraine was one of the more active members of the C.A.A. and its teams. One of the out- standing girl athletes of the class is CAROL SEY- FARTH, who has made almost every varsity team in all sports during the last three years.

MILDRED SECELI-IORST's cheery word of greeting for everyone has made her a favorite with both students and teachers. One of the best, all- around girls of our class is friendly, witty PEGGY RATHERT. Senior editor of the Saga, editorial page editor of the Courier, and president of the Quill and Page Thirty-Six 7 fAe .7wenfiefA Cfadfi Scroll, she also found time for music, varsity sports and Student Council. Peg was o11e of the few to make the Senior Honor Society in the eleventh grade. Blonde hair is not DOROTHY WEllll,Fi's only claim to fame. She is one of the most popular girls on the campus, and brains accompany her beauty. Dot sang in the Glee Club, danced in all Orchesis programs and worked long. hard hours as Saga editor in charge of all organizations. JOSEPH PAULEY doesn't look like the studious type and doesn't act like it either, but he was intelligent in classwork and got very good grades. fo M Judie friendly disposition and long, wavy hair, was an impor- tant member of the Orchesis. Small, zoot-suited HARRY SCHUERMANN was eo- advertising manager of the Courier. Super-salesman Harry spent a lot of time and energy running around getting ads, thus assuring the Courier a sound financial basis. FERN SCHULTZ looks scarcely big enough to tackle typing. but she does, and succeeds very well, too. Fern hopes to continue in the commercial fields as a secretary.

Jacque. noted for her Music Festival, A long standing member of the Orches- tra, Band and Norsemen, Reva also was in the Mixed Chorus and Girls' Clee Club. She also found time for Student Council and Art Society. The first ranking student of the senior class is VICTORIA MECARIS. whose average was a straight "Av for four years. Her sweet disposition and line work were welcomed on the Courier Staff, Where she was copy editor. It's hard to tell. but this one is VELMA TEBBE, of the Tebbe twins. She helped the Vikings at football games as a cheer- leader and was a prominent figure in all Orehesis performances. Page Thirty-Seven is Not much relaxation but once in awhile they found time-our Hi-Y oilicers: Mike Wiqhtman. lack Rutherford, Charley Smith, and Don Davis. 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!

VIRGINIA STACK, 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 class, is no mere child. Bob has made his mark in varsity football, baseball and wrestling, and it follows naturally that he is one of the five most popular boys. A member of the dramatics club, Courier staff and coed volleyball team, ,IEANETTE MUELLER was never one to limit her fields of interest, and if l'Net" goes into clerical work as she plans, we know sheill be good in that, too, for her cheerful way and her merry smile will make her a success in any chosen work. BOB SAMEL's major interest is baseball, in which he is already known outside ol' Normandy. We are proud to say that special notice has been taken of Bobis playing by major league scouts.

Until he entered college at mid-term, Bob was active as a mem- ber of Mixed Chorus, Glee Club, the Swingsters, Band and Saga. Bob has the distinction of being the second 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 like Mixed Chorus and Clee Club count her as a faithful member.

Gaining valuable experience, Betty spent her 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- ing outlined the sports activities of LLOYD GRASS, one of the outstanding athletes of the class. Lloyd worked hard on the advertising staff of the Courier and was loyal to the Hi-Y and its many activities. Small, energetic TERESA Gll,ARDl was the most active of girls? sports enthusiasts.

Her lilting voice has been heard in the Mixed Chorus, Clee Club and Nonettes for the last three years. The old saying that good things come in small packages is true of EDVVARD CARRISON.

Dorothy also managed to get high grades in commercial subjects. ome eniord Curly, black-haired OLIVER SCHROEDER has only been attending Normandy for two years, but in that time he has made himself a well-liked figure through his work on the Football and Track teams. His main inter- ests are the shop courses. Remember the Irish-American theme at the St. l'at's Dance three years ago? And do you remember MAXINE DAVIS who was selected queen although she was only in the tenth grade then? That was certainly proof that she has many friends who like her swell personality. Dark, handsome MEURIEL REED is laughingly called Anderson Markmann Garrison Montague Gerling Edwards Glick Pqetzold Schroeder L'Sabu', because of his close resemblance to the young native actor. Meuriel does not limit himself to elephants, however, for he is a Hall Guard and is interested in all Hi-Y activities.

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.

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 life training. 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 to Scott resulted in many a touchdown. The future varsity will be an experienced team when this yearis "Bw gridders take over. We'll expect them to show their stuff and give us another championship. ie erf fund jbr jufure 9 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. Coach "Mike,' Riegert deserves much credit for putting the team in shape at the same time he was busy coaching the varsity quintet. Page Seventy-One uinfef Avenged 06:5 0 grown ug All eyes look to the center oi the court as Melter and Beaumont center jump for the tip off Coach Reigert in cz happier moment in Sub-Regional Tournament. EING paced by the Mblindw shots of Captain Bill lVlelte1', the fire of Herman Egli, the alertness of Lloyd Grass, the long shots of Bob Duncan, and the tenacity of Don Kronsbein, the varsity quintet put down ir1 the scorebook eight wins and eleven loses. The 'LRiegertmen'7 seemed Ferguson watches as Melter tips one in the hoop. on the bench. very adept in last-minute steadiness and scoring. Three of the games were won by one pointe- against McBride, Sullivan, and Wollston. Perhaps the real uheadlinern of the year was the defeat of the Wellston Trojans in a second attempt. Having won the Brown ,lug on Thanksgiving Day from the Football Team and having already beat the 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. ln its own Christmas tournament the Vikings did Page SeventyATwo garigefeerfi id fa orman At I0 3 if 9 Devil for possession of the ball. gn Egli Vieg with q Maplewood Blue TOP ROW: Beach, Fuchs, Melter.

OU HAVE heard them at assemblies, watched their antics at sport events, helped them in cheering Normandyjs teams toward victory-the Cheer Leaders! Heading this year7s squad were Gloria Capstick and Ralph Short, ex- perienced in this art. Special uniforms and, of course, the big mega- phones distinguish the Cheer Leaders as they take the field. Their distinctive red sweaters and white trousers or skirts are supplemented at the end of the year by large MN's,77 bearing the typical mega- phone, which they have earned by their year of service. Cheer Leaders arouse greater school spirit and instill loyalty in the hearts of the students. Schools having large attendance at events, assemblies, and games can attribute part of this interest to faithful cheer leaders, who are always fostering support for all school activities. Cheer Leaders contribute much to team spirit and victory. Inspiration to tired and weary folks is supplied by ably-directed cheering. By their peppy uYeal Normandylw the leaders spur the teams on and give the athletes new life and energy. Lending color to games and programs and pro- viding good entertainment during intermission periods are other duties of the Cheer Leaders. Many Smith, Larkin, Miller, Fitzsimmons, Sachs, Short, Rudy, Renault, Capstick. a drab football game or assembly program is remembered because of carefully planned entertain- 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 body in the pep assemblies that are held regularly early in the fall. Sometimes the new yells 'fcatch onw and are successful, but our all-time favorite still remains- N-O-R-M-A-N-D-Y N-O-R-lVl-A-N-D-Y N-N-NOR-M-M-MAN-D-Y NORMANDY HIGH YEA! Page Seventy-Four l' ralala em .Slow ing rawn HE WRESTLING SQUAD was better than its record indicates. The record says one win against four losses and a fourth in the state meet. This doesnit tell the story. Two of the matches lost could have been wins with another match victory. Another one was almost that close. Only one defeat was decisive, that one by Ritenour. However, this loss was more than compensated by a crushing victory over our county rivals, Univer- sity City. Things were bright when December and wrestling practice started as 41 candidates turned out, includ- ing five veterans, one a state champion, Johnny 1V1cClinton. However, interest seemed to drop, and by mid-January, half that number was an excep- tional turnout. ln spite of transportation difliculties, the team opened officially against lV1aplewood's 1911-2 and 1943 champions on January 13. They dropped the meet 22-18, after a 13-5 lead. Then on the nine- teenth, Ritenour beat the Vikings at Huskie gym, 32-8. Only Sam Pardue and Dick Sterling emerged victorious. An inexperienced University City squad met disaster here on February 3 as Normandyis grap- plers swept every match, winning all but one by a pin. The score was 53-0. Then, three days later, under the gym arcs, the squad almost beat Ritenour, winners of thirty-six straight. After building up a 12-0 lead, the Vikings fell behind the Huskies and lost, 23-17, in the final match. At Maplewood, the Blue Devils again beat the Norsemen by overcoming the early lead built up by the lightweights, 26-16. Then came the state! Miller pulled a muscle, lost his match. lVlcClinton, state 120-pound champ, dislocated a rib, and the match was stopped. Ster- ling, undefeated in the regular season, became sick in the semi-final, and lost the decision after leading. Pardue fought to two practical throws, but had both called against him. The result was the squad came 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 useful in times such as these. Under his guidance, a crowd of boys were developed into a wrestling squad that delivered against veteran groups from other schools. Several boys experienced in coni- bat will return as a basis for next year's team. TOP ROW: Brennan, Sterling, Fuchs, Larkin, Beard, Boehlow, Powers, Dingmcxn.

Art Hurtt jumped five feet, ten inches for a record, while Glenn Siler was putting the junior shot fifty- six feet, and Bill Clark was running the junior 880-yard run in 2:09.0. Another of our promising juniors was Ken Schneider, who sped over the I20- yard low hurdles in 14.8. Besides setting records the Red and Green cinder- ment had time to take a third in the U. City Invitational, being nosed out of second place by Maplewood, while the Indians, per usual, were winning their own meet. Of the six dual meets, the Vikings won three, while they lost the same number. On the win side for the tracksters were the Fairview, McBride, and St. Charles meets. As the records will show, the junior division was usually the foundation for the 'twinfi In each of the six dual meets, the juniors outscored the senior division. Outstanding stars of the senior division were Art Hurtt in the high jump, Leo Ladendecker in the 880-yard run, Roland Currie in the 440-yard dash, Glenn Siler and Jack Rutherford in the weight division, and Carl Massot in the 200-yard low hurdles. Leading both divisions in points scored was Bill Koester, thrower of the discus and sprinter in 50 and 100-yard dashes. Ken Schneider and Mel Swyers usually turned up first or second in the low sticks. Clark, of course, was the outstanding junior distance man, but Ronald Bergmeier was speedy in the 414-0 dash. Ralph Short and Albert Mitchell were the team's high jumpers. Vernon Bourner found his place in the shot put and pole vault. 3, Coach '4Mike', Riegert had line material to work with, but this material would have been useless without his leadership. Team spirit ranks as high as ability, and Ken Schneider showed the team had it. In the meet with U. City, Ken was running his 220 of the 880 relay. Suddenly his shoe came untied. Undaunted, Schneider merely kicked off the shoe. Continuing with one foot bare, he crossed the tape a winner. In the State Outdoor, although the record doesn't show it, the Vikings did make a fair showing.

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 home runs. 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 margin. 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. Page Seventy-Eight 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 blows apiece. 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 the year.

INTHAMURAL BASKETBALL givin! jig .jwlofoferd 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.

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." Page Eighty-Two The 1942 May Fete, Hlithapsody in Blueff was ag efe elf' ran lna, e "As Time Goes By" our life at Normandy was finished. 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. Wllhanks for the Memoryw recalled the happy, carefree, pre-war days of 1938.

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.

Whether it be on the hockey field, basketball floor, volleyball court, or softball diamond, the deserving participants are always well rewarded for their ability in more ways than one. They not only receive the material prize of an HN,,' but, be- cause of their contacts with others girls, they learn the important lessons of co-operation, fair play, and good sportsmanship. The first varsity of the year to be chosen is the hockey varsity. Because of war problems, the 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.

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.

Senior Paul Williams congratulates Iuniors Mary Ruthert and Betty Delvas on making Senior Honor Society. t of j7AQ .gbkoof 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 Normandy. Juniors do not have to wait until they are seniors to work for such a goal. They can become members of the Junior Honor Society if they qualify in scholarship, activities. and citizenship. The requirements are not quite as stiff as those of the seniors, but it is more difiicult to earn points in junior high school. 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.

Finishing its twentieth year, the Senior Student Council has proved itself a prominent and success- ful ruling body. The Juniors, too, are to be com- mended for their activities during past years. Being a democratic organiation, the Student Council is composed of members elected by the various home- rooms, which through their representatives then play a part in the student government. lVlr.

Of course, the chief duties of the organizations have to do with school government. Besides this, they maintain a clean campus and well-kept lawns, supervise order and cleanliness in the cafeteria, and encourage good sportsmanship and enthusiastic cheering at all athletic events. Helping them with these jobs, the Junior Cor- ridor Officers have definite responsibilities. Xvorth- while citizens of dependability, the members of this crew are hand-picked by Mrs. Elva DuGan, their sponsor. ln the Senior School, the Hall Guards, under the supervision of lVlr. Hadley Crawford, keep the corridors quiet and orderly. Once a month the Student Council dances, open to all activity subscribers, are held after school. These gatherings are attended by large numbers of students, who thus have an opportunity to become acquainted socially with many of their classmates. Four lyceum programs, sponsored by the Council, brought interesting and educational relief from routine classes. The Mloost and Foundi' has also been greatly improved since it was put under the supervision of the Student Council. Each morning before and after school a member of the Council takes his place in the small room where everyone finds, or tries to find, what heis lost.

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. ecorcler of 36400 Jdcfiuified C LL-OUT for the war effortf, This might well be the theme of our Normandy Courier, which for three consecutive years has received the highest rating pos- sible for any school newspaper-the Pacemaker. To keep up with the times, the staff has changed the Courier from a large, six-column paper to a streamlined tabloid of five columns and is concentrating more and more on all of the war activities of present and former Normandy-ites. This concen- tration brought a rating of 4'Superior,7' which is the highest possible for this type of writing, from the National Scholastic Press Association. The Courier, under the outstanding supervision of Mrs. Mary Still, is edited by second-year journalism students, with first-year students acting as reporters. Because of their great interest in their work, these students do not begrudge the many hours of work spent to make our Courier the excellent paper it is. The experience that the students get in journalism and news- paper work increases their interest in current events and teaches them how to read a paper intelligently. Those who want to go on with their journalism have laid an excellent foundation for further study.

The band, ably directed 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, gave a musical program at Wellston High School, and presented numerous assemblies here. Aug- menting its fame also was its line presentation in competition with other school bands at University City, where the group received a Certificate of Merit. There are now sixty-five talented musicians in the Band, among whose members are sixteen who ad- vanced from the junior groups. Quite a number 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.

Throughout the school year, the students have received much enjoyment working together and playing for us. ln addition to the fun, they received much-needed ex- perience from playing before audiences. All of them have become better musicians because of this year's study. The Band proved its ability at the annual Spring Concert when they played selections from Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin. Their rendition of the Anzerican Rhapsody, by Long. was excellent and entertaining.

Mr. Joachim has introduced this year a method ol instruction best fitted to the particular instrument, not accepting the plan of study of any individual writer. With private instruction, which some of the pupils receive at home. we have developed a group of capable musicians. The school may boast of an excellent Band, of which we can be justly proud.

EGINNING in the first semester these junior students study' their music and improve on their individual playing. lvhen the Band is assembled, under the direction of Mr. Darrell Joachim, group playing is studied, and they strive for perfection as a unit.

Sgncopafion 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 properly. 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 classics. Page One Hundred Pour udic on fke arc ARTIAL rhythms, precise maneuvers, and snappy hlue and white uniforms are as much a part of the football games as pig- skins and jerseys, as shifts and safeties. Marching Bands add the pep and sparkle to any game. But marching isnit as much fun as it appears on the surface. Long, cold hours are spent drilling out on the field for weeks before every game. A lot of patience and a lot of energy are necessary to per- fect the formations that appear so simple and effort- less to the spectators. School spirit is the musicians, ustock in trade." They must have plenty of it to take the day after day of drilling without complaining, to turn out in full force at all games, as regularly as the players. in weather varying from stifling, dusty heat to icy, windy cold. Theyive done a good job this year under the direction of Mr. Darrell Joachim and show much promise for next season. Newly-organized Norsemen swing out on "Elk's Parade" in an assembly. In one of their intricate formations the Normandy Marching Band places our lavorite "N" within a musical lyre.

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 usmolce Gets ln Your Eyes," and alive Got Plenty of Nothinf " For a patriotic number, the Orchestra played MAmerican Fantasief' a medley of favorite American songs.

If you recognize this tuneful sound, you have probably heard the Girls' Clee Club when they were practicing for some important musical event. Under Mrs. Mary Franklinis superior leadership and training, the Girls, Clee Club has grown to be an outstanding organization at Normandy. Not only have the girls gained renown for their impressive and entertaining work at school and in 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. MSing, Song, Sing, Song, So Hop Toylw Chinese? No, not exactly.

They're prob- ably singing in assembly or something today? Such a conversation might precede any of the several programs provided by the Boys, C-lee Club throughout the year.

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 they enjoy singing, and it is only by each fellow Page One Hundred Ten ccrmonizerri 0 agznior doing his part that the high standards of the group have been established and maintained throughout the years. This year we were very happy to hear from the double quartet on numerous occasions. The group, under the direction of Mr. Crawford, has had a Jigi varied repertoire at hand. They have realized how much enjoyment is received from the more popular and comical numliers, and since most of their songs are of that category, they call them- selves Millie Swingstersf, They have had a great deal of enjoyment working together.

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.

Scrap and paper collecting were but two of their activities directed by Miss Norma Kissner, their sponsor. The ambition of each scout is to pass as many tests as possible. As a Brownie, the girl Hflies upi' and then begins her series of tests. The tests begin simply, and, later, as a Life or Eagle Scout, they get fairly complex. Tests such as signaling, first-aid, cooking, and home-making must be passed. Because of their bearing on the war, the Scouts were determined to learn something about each of these subjects and soon knew enough to pass the tests with flying colors.

Well, it's a brother- hood organization of the Young Men's Chris- 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 White cross, the symbol of purity. The purpose of the club is to create, maintain, and extend through- out the school and community high standards of Christian character. 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. 4'Have you bought your Buzz Book yet?7, This was an almost hackneyed expression as the popular telephone number and address book came off the press.

The athletically inclined showed their talents at the Father and Son Get-Together Party, which was held in the gym. Various exhibitions were given, displaying the physical standards that the Nor- mandy boy must attain. Another of the Hi-Y's many activities was its basketball team. Everyone participated in the conditioning games, while those with exceptional abilities were chosen for regular games scheduled with former students and other independent groups.

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 school. , 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. Pcxqe One Hundred Twenty-Seven Mr. Rickher removes cz street obstruction alter school has started.

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 QCLFLAFLQ55 CUQJ 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- tinguished servicell' LEFT TO RIGHT: Hinson, Reichert, Creed, Davis, Wilke, Deadrich, Lundberg, Root, Stuck.

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. .S7fuc!enf ML are jlzeir im 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 life. 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. Page One Hundred Thirty-One TOP ROW: Student Council officers introduced to students at first assembly.

This is only one of the many inter- esting assemblies given during the course of the school year. Our Music Department always pre- sents fine entertainment. Proof of its outstanding abilities is the many awards won in the numerous contests the groups have entered. September 18 dated the first assembly with Mr. R. D. Shouse introducing the new Normandy teachers and pupils. War time brought with it numerous new additions to both student body and faculty. With the passing of the first month of school, the Activity Drive became the center of attraction. The advantages of an activity ticket were illustrated in the Activity assembly, which opened the ten-day campaign, with speeches by George Fuchs, Blanche Stoddard, Bill Stanley, and Bill Storm on sports, Saga, Courier, and dramatics, respectively. The Boys, Sextet adorned funny costumes that greatly amused their listeners, and Mrs. Schneideris dance classes gave their first performance of the year at this assembly. After this assembly, the pupils re- turned to their homerooms to sign their Activity pledges. Besides the regular assemblies, programs of special educational interest by outside performers were given from time to time throughout the year. The first of the lyceums was presented by the Gesters, magicians, Who are always amusing to the students. One of the most interesting of the lyceums Was "Sounds of the Airi' in which Harold Allen and Alice Demmons gave demonstrations of how radio sound effects are made. Mr. Allen also gave imita- tions, and Miss Demmons played the piano. For music lovers, the Wade Trio was especially inter- esting With its accordion, piano, and marimba solos. The Student Council is to be congratulated on its fine selection of entertainment presented in both assemblies and lyceums. Page One Hundred Thirtyffwo S THE first month of the fall semester r'olls away, the schoolis social life opened with the Get-Acquainted Dance, presented by the Hi-Y. The smooth rhythm of Bill Lemonls Orchestra brought favorable comments from every- one present. The next affair on the school calendar was the Harvest Dance. Keeping pace with the times, the Music Department entitled their dance the uHangar- Hopf As master of ceremonies, Bill Stanley crowned Sarah Bowman the l91l-3 Harvest Queen. The Christmas Dance was not such a gala affair as in former years. Everyone missed the fine enter- tainment of the floor show usually presented by Mrs. Schneider's classes. Nevertheless, Morton AleXander's Orchestra provided plenty of invigorat- ing entertainment. Then came the Senior Sweater, Saddle-Shoe Swing sponsored by this year's graduating class. Dancing to records in the cafeteria will long be remembered by all juniors and seniors who at- tended. Although the Lettermen cancelled their dance at bil' the close of the football season, they sponsored a sweater dance in the early part of the second semester. Sandwiches and cokes provided the re- freshments, while dancing and ping-pong provided the entertainment. March 20 dated the l9-'13 St. Patls Dance, spon- sored by the Courier. The decorations supple- mented the theme, which was lrish Songs. The big moment arrived at eleven-thirty when Bill Stanley canre forward to announce that Billye Jean Up- house, eighth-grader, had received the honor of reigning as the 194-3 St. Patas Queen. With the coming of the war and rationing, came the cancellation of the Hi-Y Dinner Dance. To replace this wartime casualty, the Hi-Y held a dance in the Variety Room of the Roosevelt Hotel. The biggest event of the year-fthe May Fete-M came on May 6 and 7. After the performance, entitled 4'lVlemories and Melodiesf' was given for the last time on Friday night, The Saga sponsored a dance. Dancing to the music of Bill Schreirergs Orchestra helped make this yearis May Fete an- other outstanding memory. TOP ROW: This year Lettermen sponsor Sweater Dance.

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.

Page One Hundred Thirty-Four Page One Hundred Thirty-Five guenfd of jde your 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 'cswella' social life that Normandy pro- vided. 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- back riding and bowling. Their lunch hour, no doubt. The Bowling Club goes into action.

Q-Emi W9Afew lTH the War hitting closer and closer to our own country, state, city, even school, there arises the 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 January, Was a three-act comedy telling of the adventures and troubles of four young boys and girls during their mother and fatherls vacation in South America for four months. Nancy Marlcmann, Tommy Chamblin, Anna Rickmann, Joe Venezia, and Sylvia Borgstede had the leading roles. The Senior Play, given in May, was the ever-humorous :Spring Feverf' showing the rush of the last days before graduation in a small college town: grades, finals, the prom, and their commencement all are im- portant. There were no leads, every part being equally important. Mr. Torres and his actors deserve and receive our vote of thanks for their efforts toward helping a bleak world seem a little sunnier.
