In its infancy, the building it crowns was a theological school, but in 1922, its Hportals Widew opened to a different type of student, the laughing, vibrant youth of an expanding metropolis. Since that date, many scenes have passed before the face of the old school clock, from days We View only in humorous photograph albums until this instant. To this regulator, to this Wise old historian We, of the 1944- Saga staff, dedi- cate this twenty-first volume of our book, a chronicle of this year at Normandy. We dedicate this book not only to the times the aged mechanical guardian has recorded or is recording, but to the time it will record, in hopes that those hidden days will dawn on a better time, on a happier time. ihe School HNWHAIM ms SMR Editor-in-Chief - Lilerary C0-Editors - Business Manaber Advertising Managei - Photographic Editor - Art Editor - - Faculty Advisor LARRY CUM MINCS DULCINA Rossrzl, DON PEET JIM STEWART ERMA SMITH BOB F1,0R1 WYESIAEY CORNER Miss MARY PITNEY A .3 gf R Q E 5 Q .

The hours We spend over textbooks, the hours We spend on seem- ingly endless assignments, the hours we spend listening to lecture after lecture are all kept track of by the old school clock. The prime purpose of the school is education, and classes provide the formal side of this education. They balance the scales, setting off Normandyas physical edu- cation and its social training. Times at Normandy are well spent in the never-ending pursuit of facts and figures. The old clock, with its steady, calm rhythm, gives the downbeat for studies. lt runs on and on, throughout the years, symbolizing Norn1andy's progress and cease- less building for the future that comes tomorrow. gswy X 4 Hd'- M, R, if ' L a A A.

WINIFRED BOLM, Ph.B. ADMINISTRATOR OF THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL TH CTIU UIDING, directing, and supervising the junior high school is no easy task, but Mrs. Winifred Bolm has done an excellent job. Patient, understanding, even-tempered, and cap- able, Mrs. Bohn makes it her aim to know the young people under her supervision. By Iningl- ing among the students, she has organized a system based on the dependability and capabil- ity of the pupils. Her democratic organization runs smoothly, and the cooperation she receives from the students and teachers is a worthy tribute to her ability.

War jobs and armed forees have thinned their ranks drastically, but those remaining have carried on their jobs faithfully and against tremendous odds.

PLEASE service have doubled and trehled their expenditures of energy and their hours of lahor. Uncomplainingly they have shouldered the hurdens of their war johs with amazing efficiency. Nowhere has the pinch of war re- strictions been more sharply felt than in these departments where procurement and transportation of supplies is so vitally important. Delay and some- times total failure in this service is mel with cheerful patience by these true friends of the school. Their interest in student activities and the extra work they do just to help out is certainly not part of the contract and just serves to prove their real friendship. Their con- stant vigilance, sometimes misinter- preted hy careless students, is really a genuine concern for their welfare. .ffl , I " 1 sm ,P .. , music. . Jlr.

Even divided by the numher enrolled in school, their total service leaves a huge quotient of service per person and a debt that it is impossible to pay. Every student owes a personal note of thanks to each of these hard-working, long-suffering in- dividuals. Without them the school would operate much less smoothly and chaos would soon result. Imagine Normandy with noihus transportation, the cafeteria with no food, the en- tire school with no cleanly swept halls and class roomsithen you will have an idea of their essential place in the life of the school.

The grim specter of war has thinned their ranks, disrupted their routineg more important, it has issued a challenge. The careless strength of youth is to be tried by the cold steel of reality. It is the casual confidence of young Americans that will enable them to survive.

Success in these tasks depends on precision thinking and precision techniques, and those most capable of such jobs are persons with a solid foundation of clear thinking ac- quired through intense mathematical training. Mathematics begins its thorough drills and encouragement of clear, concise thinking in the classes of junior, prac- tical, and general math, required sub- jects for junior students. The higher bracket of mathematics begins with algebra Ig the fundamental principals of dealing with unknowns and symbols are introduced.

Advanced al- gebra studies are concerned with more difficult equations and radicals. Solid geometry includes problems dealing with the third dimension. The study of triangles is taken up in trigo- nometry, and the students see the neces- sity of mathematics in engineering, nav- igation, and aeronautics. Special reme- dial and refresher math courses and new teaching techniques evolved through a careful study of Army and Navy re- quirements account for the growing eminency of Normandyis Mathematics Department. Whether he he prowling through icy waters in a PT boat or wending his way in damp, steaming jungles, every serv- iceman realizes his great dependence on science and scientific methods. Wal'- Illllll ll ll llllll time needs have increased attention given to scientific background. The basis of scientific education is laid in the junior science courses and continues in general science, which bring out the rudiments of scientific thinking and stimulate interest in later elective courses. Students interested in plant and ani- mal life most often choose biology, which includes numerous experiments and out-of-school projects ranging from animal dissections to Victory gardens. Senior science successfully presents a well-rounded course in the every day applications of science, encompassing the study of first-aid, health, navigation, meteorology, and fundamentals of elec- tricity. Of coming rank is physiog- raphy, introduced to senior elective sciences this year. The highest degree of the sciences is attained in chemistry and physics. Because of the pertinent material contained in these studies, they remain the essential basis for en- gineering and technical fields. Aizftfomy is the topic of the day in biology, mir!

Does this cross hatch- ing properly illustrate the drawing? Questions and queries such as these are constant from Sep- tember to June in the ears of our staff of coni- petent Industrial Arts Department instructors. The superiority of teaching and organization of this important branch of our curriculum is largely the work of the departmentls head, Mr. John Krahlin. The basic training in shop work begins in the junior high with practical courses of home me- chanics, junior shop, general shop, and beginning wood-working. The juvenile mechanic or carpenter may emerge from these classes with a lustrous new tie rack or a well-soldered container for his boyish t1'easures, the type of product depending upon the direction his twig of interest is bent. Alter the first years of primary training, the pupil usually advances in the phase of work he likes hest. These choices may range from me- chanical drawing to auto mechanics and wood- Paqe Fifty-Six VHEATHI AL TRAINING Ieurrlillff lmfc lo lltlllff' Il Iflue print in mr wlmnicrzl rlrfnrinyf.

Mechanical drawing offers an excellent course for hoth hoys and girls interested in commercial fields of drafting and architectural drawing. The requisite of neatness amd accuracy' affords a training applicable to any type of work. and lor this reason the mechanical drawing classes haye commanded an increased enrollment in comparison to former years. The Normandy' student doesn't fail to recognize the oppor- tunities awaiting an exacting, careful drafts- man. Equally' practical in value for those adept in its execution is the course in advanced wood- working. Many" attractive pieces of furniture and ornaments grace the rooms of Normandy' homes hecause oi the skilled construction tech- niques learned in the shop. Cahinets, desks. and tahles present no great dilliculties to the wood- worker, whether male or female. Yes, even seyeral of the hraver girls have successfully' en- gaged in this handicraft course. lintrespassed as yet hy the lighter touches ol female hands is the auto mechanics, work shop. With the increasing endearment of the auto- mohile. many hoys have found the knowledge gained of its construction and performance to he of indisputalmle value.

Grammar and correctly spoken English, composition and correctly written English, literature and appreciation of the possibilities of English-all are parts of the language we speak. Journalism, dramatics, and public speaking, branches of the main stem of English, are specialization courses which give students experience and training in practical use of skills ac- quired in the regular English classes. The natural successor to a study ol our own language is an introduction to the languages of our world neighbors. ln the eighth-grade general language course a brief time is spent on Spanish, French, Latin, and German.

ED AND GREEN were the colors of a baskethall team that swept victoriously through the district. making the name of Normandy synonymous with speed, accuracy, and sportsmanship. Previous to the Christmas tournament the Vikings had three wins. heating Wellston. Welw- ster Groves, and Ferguson. The Riegert-men drew the inexperienced Eugene Coyle team lor their first opponent in tournament play. and the final score was Coylef23. lX0l'lH3I1Cly'5Al1. ln the quarter finals the Red and Green drew Bis- marck, powerful out-of-town winner of the tour- nament. The Vikings fought hard but were de- feated in the final minutes 32-27, as "Red" Reagan, the None-man-team" from Bismarck, scored 24- points. One of the biggest upsets of the season was Normandyfs defeat of Kirkwood. Going into the last few minutes, our boys were one point he- hindg then Lane Bauer Hdumped 0116 in the bucket" and put Normandy ahead.

This season had a turnout of about 40 boys com- pared with nearly IUO for track and football. What is the reason for the lack of interest? Mr. Ceorge Bruno, Wrestling coach, says mrhe only explanation is that the students do not see the importance of the sport in the world of tomorrow. Many European countries have adopted wrestling as a national sport. and I hope that America will more wholeheartedly support wrestlingfl With these thoughts in mind. Mr. Bruno guided the wrestling squad through a season of ten scheduled meets, winning but two of the ten. The squad was almost wholly inexperienced, with only four returning lettermen, Ken Miller, Jim Sinn, Carl Massot. captain, and Ed Larkin. With every ounce of their strength and courage. the lads faced such powerhouse teams as Granite City, Maplewood. Xllebster Groves, and Ritenour. ln the state meet the squad placed fourth with one state cham- pion. lid Larkin in the 154- lb. class. Four other wrestlers placed: Frank Mclilinlon, Hob Mosby, Ken Miller, and Norman llierman. HU SER HERE GOES another Normandy cheer as the Cheer Leaders spur on the teams of the Red and Green. Cheer- ing from Normandy rooters and students has been rather weak in the past, but this year more interest was shown, and a larger group of students Came out for cheerleading. The girls and boys in red sweaters and white pants were a fa- miliar sight at all the athletic contests in which the men of Nor- mandy gave their all for the team. Yes, these cheerleaders brought new spirit and courage to the Viking men when they were down and needed some inspiration. They rallied the fans with a yell for old INormandy that made any loyal boosteris blood tingle and gave them the urge to get in there themselves and murder the opposition. Without the cheerleaders the color and excitement would not be on hand at the games of the Vikings. Maybe next year even more interest will be shown in this activity, and once again Nor- mandy will have a larger group of cheerleaders to lead a large group of students in organized cheers.

Enfield of Blewett leads Clark and Herman in the mile. Y WINNING five dual meets without the taste of defeat, the cindermen completed one of Normandyls best track seasons. The Red and Green conquered St. Charles, C. B. C., McBride, St. Louis, and Ben Blewett in dual contests. Power was almost equally distributed throughout the squad, with the ,luniors Winning five meets and the Seniors winning four, losing only to ever-powerful St. Louis. It was apparent from the outset of the season that the Senior Division lacked the necessary punch to win consis- tently during dual-meet competition. Coach Riegert wisely moved Vernon Bourner and Ronnie Bergmeir from the powerful Junior Division and placed them with the Seniors. With this added strength, the Seniors did not come close to defeat throughout the rest of the season. There were three stand-outs in the squad. They were Vernon Bourner, Ray Starkey, and Al Michell. Vernon, running in both Junior and Senior Divisions before the season came to an end, ran in the 50, 100 and 220 yard dashes, threw the shot and discus, and ran in the relay. He scored 211A points in his first two meets and at the end of the season had a combined total of 76 points. Ray Starkey, running with the Juniors, Page Seventy-Two el THAEHSTEH , HHNIA HY JU IURU HISTHIET EHANIPS The start of the Junior 4.40, won by Carr, second from right.

HAT SURE SIGN of spring, the crack of Wood on leather, was delayed and ham- pered this year by Weather that can be described only as wet. Consequently, the Viking ball club was slow in getting rolling. In fact, the Norsemen seemed destined to live up to pessimistic preseason forecasts, when they lost their opening game to Ben Blewett by a wide margin. Three of our pitchers were pounded un- mercifully by the Blewett bats, and Normandy's hitting and fielding were also poor. Another defeat, even more crushing, was in store for the Vikings at the hands of Beaumont, city Champs. The St. Louis team battered across ten runs as their pitcher hurled a no-hit game against the Red and Green. This performance was almost repeated in the third game of the season with Ritenour, but Wally McHugh saved a little of the Viking honor With a pinch single in the last inning. Another hero of the game Was outfielder Harold Theis, who robbed a Ritenour player of a home run when he made a sensational catch against a high left field fence. Normandy had its day the following week when Harold Hancock set Ritenour down with Page Seventy-Four YHUTHF L HASEHAL The olcl squeeze play with Fisher rmming to first. three hits while his teammates squeezed the win- ning run across in extra innings. Hancock also struck out eleven men in this first Viking vir- tory. The all-round improvement the team showed in this game was even more apparent When they met Ben Blewett in a return contest. Normandy came out on the long end of a 4 to l score as a result of the steady pitching of Bob tler, a balanced attack, and much improved lense. Confidence increased with a 27-l de- .t of Clayton, but something happened again, d the boys were able to chalk up only vic- y out of the last four contests. Next year should produce a championship ie with a veteran team on hand.

The loss of Coach Joe Mt-Govern to the Navy in midseason and that "ol, debilw inexperience were factors largely responsible for the gloomy total of losses. After bowing to McBride, Maplewood, and Clayton in their first three games, the Normandy lads began to click and downed the Country Day Eleven 7 to 0. Though more losses were to fol- low, this victory marked the welding of a team out of the un- trained boys who began the season. Pacing the tearrfs attack were Captain Don Bowling and Buddy Garrison in the backlield, with Don Powers and Oris Crowley starring in the line. Though the record of the season may appear black in the won- and-lost columns, the main purpose of the MBU team is not just to win games. It is to provide the training and the experience necessary for future gridiron victories. ln this, the HB77 teamss '43 season was a success, from its ranks will come victorious Viking varsities of tomorrow. "LL" LLSLLLTH LL IKING MBN basketball of this year was something that only happens once in a long, long while. The junior cagers led their league with eleven victories and only three defeats, averaging thirty points a game against their opponents, twenty. The HB77 boys never made less than twenty-one points in a game. The team was sparked by freshman Doug Finley, who was high point man on the squad. Doug made HI1 average of twelve points a game, besides playing on the varsity. The freshman surprise of the year was Bob HPipper7, Ries, who played a dashing, heads- up game. Wlith Finley and Ries at the forward positions was 'iBud" Garrison, who starred on defense as well as offense. '4Bud'7 is scheduled for the varsity next year.

Starting at the guard positions were lra Smith and Hlionniew Bergmeier, who played tip-top ball all the way.

When the foothalls were put away, the crowds gathered in the gym every morning to see the matched homerooms hattle it out for the basketball title. As the play progressed, four powerful teams appeared: Crawfords, Schmidts, Taylors, and Schraders. Finally, the Crawfords were pitted against the Schraders in the final contest. It was a two out of three series, the Crawfords look the first and third game and the championship, while Schraders won the second game and deserved a pat on the hack for a good try. They were ninth graders fighting seniors. Volleyball, the only coed intramural sport. attracted many teams from all grades. Keen interest was shown es- pecially lmy the many girls who came EUNIPETITIH out. The championship was wide open all the way, hut finally a sophomore homeroom, the Franks, came out on top hy showing some fine teamwork, sparked hy Swyers, Kronshein, and Johe. Indian hall, a new sport at lYormandy this year, drew 34 teams of 3 players each. Losing one game eliminated a team from competition. There were so many good teams that the tournament was played in lwo divisions, the Red and Green. A team of Ryan, Hancock, Benoist won the stronger Green division, while Bourner, Klasing, and Johnson won the Red division. These two teams will meet for the championship. Mr. Shipherd, who plans and organ- izes all of the intramural sports, pro- claims the year a highly successful one. The large number of students partici- pating in the various sports and the keen interest in the progress of the competition were most gratifying.

Points for a letter can be earned in any girls' sport: hockey. basketball. volley ball, or base- ball. The average sports-loving girl must work at least two or three years in order to earn the necessary thousand points. The true sportsmanship of the girls was shown during the initiation, which was equally as colorful as the Letter- man's. The initiates also provided the entertainment at thc seasonis Basketball Party. Howexer. the girls are organized to do more than just have fun. They assist their athletic director.

The girls plan to give one party every year to which new members and alumnae will be invited.

Softball claims most of the girls, as they try their hand at fielding hot grounders and knocking out base hits.

Twice a week, Nor- mandy girls, sponsored by Mrs. Helen Dunbar, boarded the street car and headed for the down- town pool. The first problem for the beginners to conquer was that of Hoating, and for some that was a mighty big problem! No matter what they did, they always ended on the bottom of the pool. But they continued struggling until they became great masters at the art of floating. However, all the members weren,t novices at PLAS the water sport. Many of the girls already knew the fundamentals of swimming so the nY'l in- structor gave them a course in life-saving, with a little red canoe!

Membership in this organization is open to any girl in the seventh and eighth grade who has an interest in sports. Activities of the organization begin in early fall when the sponsor, Miss Norma Kissner, takes the youthful athletes out to the girls' athletic field and introduces them to the game of speedball. Speedball is a combination of hockey, soccer, and football, and requires plenty of speed and quick thinking on the part of the participants. It is very popular with the girls, and they throw themselves eagerly into the game. When the north winds begin to blow, action is shifted from the speedball field to the basketball court, and with the first blast of the referee's whistle girls pour into the gym from all sides. Basketball heads the list as the favorite sport. The girls are taught the techniques of shooting, guarding, and passing so that when they reach senior high, the basketeers have a ready knowledge of the sport and can take their places on the varsity. Following basketball, the volleyball nets are Page Eighty-Eight JH HH PHYSIEAL FITNESS FIILT Officers of the J'll.1Il07' G,A.A.

A clean campus and well-kept lawns, order and cleanliness in the cafeteria, and good sportsman- ship and enthusiastic cheering at all athletic events are encouraged by the Council. One of the most important jobs of the council is that of selling war stamps. lt was primarily through the efforts of these student representatives that Nor- mandy Was able to obtain the coveted Sc:hools-at-War flag and to maintain it through a large part of the school year.

Page Ninety-Four HHH UH HVHTH UCCESS as a student is climaxed by membership in the National Honor Society. ln order to earn admittance a student must have a minimum of one hundred points. This total is reached by adding the specified number of points he gets for each accomplishment in citizenship, scholarship, and ac- tivities. The candidate for membership must make top grades, must be a leading school citizen, and must be active in extra- curricular work. lVlembers are chosen from the eleventh and twelfth grades and must be approved by the faculty in addition to accumulating the required points. An impressive ceremony by candlelight, held in May, marks the initiation of the favored few. Sponsored by Mrs. Edith Bramsch, the society this year has more than forty members, each of whom is developing qualities of good citizenship. Among these members are six juniors to whom this is a double honor. They will become the olhcers of next yearis group and the nucleus around which the future or- ganization will be built. Their duties lie mainly in planning and conducting the initiation service. HHHiJUNlHH VERY junior school student has in the back of his mind the dream of making the Honor Society. However, only a select few are able each year to attain this goal. Twenty eighth-graders were elected last year, and they remain as a nucleus for the group. To become a member, a student must compile points in the fields of scholarship, by making at least a C average, citizenship, by being elected best citizen or holding oflices in classes, and activities, by participating in any of the numerous sports and extra-curricular clubs. Besides earning these points, a student must be approved by the faculty. Records of the activities of students are kept accurately by Miss Geraghty and the oflicers, Lora Rossel, president, Marceline Williams, vice-president, Carol Thiele, secretaryg and Ruth Watts, treasurer. New members, welcomed into the club each year at an im- pressive initiation ceremony, receive pins engraved with the three key words, scholarship, citizenship, and activities.

EMBERSHIP in the Orchesis, Normandyis concert dance group, is an honor most sought by the girls of Normandy. The members of this group look forward to their meet- ing every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morn- ings to work on the many programs given by them. The class is Conducted by Mrs. Edward Schneider, who is to be given much credit for the beautiful performances presented by the girls in the Orchesis.

The Orchesis gave The Aztec Sun Dance, which they repeated in the May Fete. All the girls looked forward to the May Fete, which is their grand finale. This year it was a western theme which captivated the audience with its dancing and music. Everyone gasped as Jeanette Schott. Evelyn Foelsch, and Bebe Kelly high-jumped over the ranch-house fence. Yes, Hlsasso Rancho" was given with success. Part of the success of this group stems from the respect students in the beginning classes feel for the girls who have qualified for Orchesis. Through the seventh and eighth grades prospec- tive dancers look forward to the ninth grade when they are first permitted, if they qualify, to enroll in one of Mrs. Schneideris classes. From that point on they strive for a mastery of tech- nique, grace of movement, and a skill in inter- pretation that will prove them capable of Orchesis membership. Trp-outs in the spring determine the eligibility of prospective members. The girls demonstrate their skill before Mrs. Schneider and the Urchesis. Those who have mastered the neces- sary techniques and indicate their willingness to spend long, hard hours in practice are ad- milled lo the group.

Page One Hundred Two WI H' THE THI H HE NOHSEMEN, Normandyis swing band, has become more popular this year than ever before. Modern swing is typical of Normandy students. and the Norsemen can give them plenty. Every bond drive is topped olf with a Norsemen assembly. A war stamp is each person's admission to these assemblies, and they have kept our Schools-at-Nvar flag flying many months, besides giving us some of our best assemblies. The Schools-at-VVar Hag is awarded schools which have ninety per cent or more of the student body buy- ing war stamps every month. Mr. Lawrence Guenther, the director, says, '6lVlusic of the right kind during times of war is a morale boosterf' That's vcr- tainly been true of the Norsemen and Nor- mandy. Mr. Crawford often sings with the band. and sometimes students who have excep- tionally fine voices furnish the vocals. Two of our favorites this year were Mary Jam- Nania and Marjory Kolkmeyer. NIAHEHI GNIELHHY 44 OLUMIN RIGHT!" is the vom- mand, and the Marching Band is off. If it isn't a football game or a parade, then itis first hour, and the musirians are practiving for the next ap- pearanre. This year the band followed an "Army and Navy" program, alternat- ing airplane formations and Army songs with ship formations and Navy tunes. Ae- vording to Mr. Joachirn, the director, both hand members and audience enjoyed the result. Undaunted by inrlement weather and other major adversities, they march faith- fully hoth at practice and performance, boosting immeasurahly the morale of the players in red and green. Besides regular appearances at school athletic events, the Marching Band from Normandy led the Pan-American Parade through the downtown district of St. Louis in the cityis first observance of Pan-Ameri- can Day.

Pictured here are members of the string divisiong other members are taken from the Junior Band. The Senior Band and Senior Orchestra furnished a few able individuals since ninth graders are eligible for both organizations. Sectional rehearsals were conducted separately.

Not content with bring- ing the benefits of a musical education to Normandy boys and girls, the band also participated in several parades, contests, music festivals, and special programs. Though the group is known as the Senior Band, there are many Junior school pupils holding important posi- tions in it. This indicates that member- ship in the band is based primarily on ability and musicianship. This spirit FUR I H SY and the excellent direction the band has received account for its complete suc- cess in high school music circles. ' Despite the abrupt change in di- rectors in mid-season the Band carried ion its full program, and no one would have realized by the end of the year that Mr. Gould had not been directing the band all year. Procuring new instruments and re- pairing damaged instruments were al- most impossible, but the rncmlmcrs of the organization cooperated hy taking the lmest possilmlc care of their instru- ments.

Any boy in his junior or senior year is eligible for membership, and any member is entitled to wear the Hi-Y pin, which has a definite meaning. It is a red tri- angle representing red-blooded service and growth in body, in the center of which is a while cross symbolizing purity. The Hi-Y of 1943-44 was headed by Roy Schaetzel, presidentg Ralph Buchmueller, vice- presidentg Glenn Siler, secretary, Walter Thayer, treasurer. The boys all agreed that the club was not lacking in leadership. The ollicers recipro- cated by saying their job was easy because of the cooperation of the boys. At the meetings every other Monday night, under the sponsorship of Mr. William Christian, the democratic spirit was displayed as President Roy Schaetzel called for discussion, and the fellows argued pro and con on issues concern- ing the school and club.

TEEH IEIA S ESTING-one-two-three-fourI Words which intro- duce every assembly between the walls of the senior gym! This prelude is always anticipated at the be- ginning of any school activity in which the microphone plays an important part. At Normandy when a umikew is brought out, the students know that a P. A. boy will in- variably be behind it to see that it works properly. But these lads really do a fine job, they play an im- portant part in the success of the many dances, assemblies, football games, and other activities. Along with the P. A. boys are those who operate the projector at the many movies that enliven classes and enable students to see what they're learning. They do a top job, too. HALL PATHHL TRATECICALLY stationed throughout the entire school, the hall guards keep an alert and watchful eye for the transgressors who roam about without pass-slips. These sentinels of the corridors play a vital part in checking students who unwisely cut classes. Under the able direction of Mr. Hadley Crawford in the senior school and Mrs. Elva DuGan in the junior school, the hall guards maintain quiet in the halls for the classes in session. A pleasant but firm manner is characteristic of all of the students in this hall-governing body, and great discretion and care is used is selecting the more genial and capable students for membership. HBHAHIA S ID YOU ever think how many books are issued and reissued at the school library in the course of a year? The question that comes to mind is Who does the work? Miss Abigail Holmes, even with an entire staff of student assistants, has her hands full. Issuing books, checking them in, shelving them, helping take inventory, and keeping the records in order are some of the jobs of these library girls. They work before and after school and one period during the day. simultaneously gaining valuable experience and giving valuable assistance. Undoubtedly all students should be grateful to their class- mates who give up so much time to serve their school. Omralt and Zytmrski se! up 6'lI'llI1Hl1PlIf for an assembly.

Some of these girls plan to take up nursing in the future and consider this good ex- perience in preparation for their careers. EXPERT HELPEHS OMMHRCIAL assistants--sounds good! And they are good! These girls work as assistants to the com- mercial teachcrs, devoting one period each day to acquiring valuable oflice experience. They are advanced typing, shorthand, and bookkeeping students who are chosen by the commercial teachers at the close of their junior year because of outstanding ability. Their duties are varied. They may be called upon to type stencils, grade papers, operate the mimeograph ma- chine, or run errands.

The twelye members in the organization chose as their theme for this yearis study the uBook of Cenesisfi which has been carefully read and minutely discussed. As an outgrowth of these meetings. many personal problems of the indiyidual students have been brought up. and thoughtful discussions have produced solutions and sugges- tions for a better life. The members have enjoyed weiner roasts and an over- night hike besides the regular weekly meetings. 0MMl,M'l'Y service, national service, and world serv- ice---these are the current aims of scouting keyed to war time service. Energetic cooperation in drives for collecting all vital materials and for selling stamps and bondsg industrious participation in making toys for chil- dren, afghans for hospitals, sewing kits for soldiers, and many other much-needed itemsg eager application to First Aid and home nursing courses--all characterize the up-to- the-minute Cirl Scouts. Miss Margaret Huck, sponsor of the Normandy troop, says the highlight of the year is the annual outing to the girl scout camp at Cedar Ledge. Missouri. Here each year the potential female woodsman can put to practice her out- door knowledge while having the time of her life. .EHIUHS SEIE TISTS NYONE who is interested in the latest scientific discoveries or who finds experiments thrilling should get in touch with the Chemistry Club.

Henkel, Brooks, Landis, Risch. ORMANDYSS tradition of leadership is con- sistently upheld by the school newspaper, the Courier. Each year the Courier enters a na- tion-wide contest on a competitive basis with other high school papers to determine its journalistic quality and comparative rating. For five consecutive years, it has won the highest possible "Pacemaker", award, given only to the top one percent of all the papers en- tered. The judges, comment on the quality of this year's entry stated that there was little to criticize, that the paper was practically perfect for a high school publication. Through the untiring efforts of Mrs. Mary Still, sponsor, the Courier has remained on top for these five years. Her progessive attitude and knowledge of current affairs has kept the paper and the staff stream- lined and modern. The policy of the Courier is to announce the news before it happens, report it ac- curately when it happens, and to keep Normandy stu- dents generally well-informed of school affairs. The most popular features from the student stand- point are the columns and the excellent news write- ups, because of their thorough coverage and original, snappy style. HRNIANHY9 PAEENIAHEH Jack and Mac prepare their column on ath- letics. Striving to maintain the paper,s high stand- ards are the staff reporters and the editors. The students of the two first-year journalism classes are recommended by tenth grade English teachers on their ability to write, they comprise the reporting staff. These potential reporters are whipped into shape by Mrs. Still in the first four weeks of school by giving them a Mnose for newsf' a sense of Courier style, and instructions Page One Hundred Twenty-Two IH T HA it Jlllllllllllll to all students.

The editors and managers, selected i11 the spring by the preced- ing staff and sponsors, choose the rest of the staff. Then the merry chase begins.

Photographs are planned with fingers all crossed for good weather. Snaps are scheduled, canceled, and rescheduled. Stray copy and late write-ups confuse matters more. Then head- lines, deadlines, and proofs dominate the hectic scene. The closer looms Class Day, the farther the book seems from completion.

Page One Hundred Twenty-Five IHESUVI III: llllt AT QIIHDIAIUII N ORDER to draw together the preceding sections of this hook, to give it Coherence, and to View it as a single work, we of the 19444 Saga wish to pre- sent here a summation of times at Normandy. The dances, the assemblies, the plays, the games, the lyceums, the campus lile4these are here recorded to remind you always of the glad times you knew at Nor- mandy!-the times you want to remember. The weather- heaten face of the school clock has viewed all these ac- tivities. It has set the appointed time for their appearance and has beat out the seconds they hold the Normandy spotlight. It has seen over two thousand students, from novice seventh graders to departing seniors, stroll on the campus planning these times and later discussing them. As the old clock is a symbol of Normandy tradition, so these times symholize the spirit of the Normandy student body. The Saga gives its readers this portrait of themselves during i943 and 344.

Page One Hundred Thirty-Nine iilglfi 0RMAN HE TOWER CLOCK runs on war-time now. Days of carefree peace are only memories, as Nor- mandy takes its place in a nation at war for an ideal. The Vikings of the past and the Vikings of the present have accepted the challengeg the green campus of the western hilltop has been traded by ma11y for the blood-reddened slime of a shell-pocked battle field. This section of the Saga is an attempt to record the faces and military history of graduates of our school now serving in the Armed Forces ol the United States. These men are fighting for the America they knew at Normandyg these pages are a tribute, a thanksgiving, to them. The hands of the clock move on. The times of the present fade into the shadows and the future, an unex- plored vastness, draws nearer. Perhaps when the tower clock finally announces that the udays of careless peacen have returned, the world will be a better place, as least in part, because of the sacrifice of Normandy men and women in their struggle Nfor Better Tiinesfl 'N-4. hx Dcmiels, H.

So we conclude our listing of Nor- mandy graduates, who have taken up arms in defense of their rights to choose what government and what ideology by which they will be governed, to choose any religion their hearts dictate, to choose any kind of life they desire. This listing is not a complete cataloging of these patriots, but it is as complete as all our efforts could make it. Consider Sllllllllllllll the volume of work concerned with it, and bear with our shortcomings. Any suggestions for improvement will be welcomed. Our efforts were sincere and pains- taking, but subect to human error. Undoubtedly you will find omissions and mistakes, therefore, we ask your kind indulgence, hoping you will find suflieient satisfaction with the entire section to overlook unavoid- able errors. Each time we hear of a titanic sea battle or a furious attack on an en- emy stronghold or of a gargantuan raid over Germany, it brings anxiety to the hearts and minds of many people throughout Normandy. We know that Normandy boys are repre- sented on every front. They are fighting in the jungles of the South Pacific and Asia, in the mountains of Italy, and in the air on every theater of war. Perhaps a letter from the son or husband or brother or father overseas relies the troubled spirits of his loved ones, but to some, sueh a happy letter never comes. To these homes we pay special tribute in these last pages of the Saga. Normandy homes exhibit several golden stars for those "honored dead who gave the last full measure of devotionf' To these parents, these martyrs for a cause, we, of the 1944 Saga Staff, dedicate this Memoriaxn to our revered Normandy war dead with a hope, with a vow, that their efforts will be for the accomplish- ment of lasting peace and liberty. fm rj A ml Yr!! if Dx rad' if T l I ' Q 'V i ig t I I 5 lt on McNichols, B.

Page One Hundred Fifty-Nine V HSITY FUIITH LL CContinued from page 671 of the second half and wasted little time its All-District back Lahay carrying the ball over and converting, to tie the score at 7-7. The game was rapidly coming to a close when Swyers in- tercepted a pass and ran to the Southside 35. A short pass to Curtis advanced it to the 20, but a second pass was in- tercepted by Froetter of the visitors, who carried it 85 yards for the winning touchdown. NORMANDY, 19, MAPLEWOOD, 12 The upset of the season! The Vikings trounce the vaunted Blue Devils of Maplewood! The Normandy boys were feeling a little bitter over their past two defeats and were hungry for a victory. That they were facing one of the countyis toughest teams didnit seem to impress them. A pass from Nealy Fulbright to Joe Conrad took the ball almost to the enemy goal, but it remained for Kronsbein to plow through for the score. Sparked by the running Mundwieller, their star back, the Blue Devils came back down the field to tie it up. But no sooner had the second half begun than Lane Bauer, the Normandy back from Brooklyn, cut loose with a beautiful bit of broken-field running, going 79 yards for a touchdown. Phil Bourner then drop-kicked the extra point. But Maplewood refused to concede defeat, and again Mundwieller came to the rescue of his team, catch- ing a pass and going over half the length of the field to make the score 13-12. The extra-point was blocked. To make victory certain Swyers intercepted an enemy pass and led the Vikings to their third touchdown. A real upset! NORMANDY, 6, WEBSTER, 21 Bitter medicine was in olfing for the Red and Green in their next contest. Over-confident after their surprise win from Maplewood, the Vikings found themselves face to face with a 'GT formation" that really worked. ln the air and on the ground the formidable Statesmen swept through the Normandy defense to roll up score after score. With the exception of Normandyis single offensive drive that ended in our lone touchdown, the game was Webster all the way. Not only did they have a sterling offense, but their defensive power gave them two more points on a safety. A sorry day for the Majormen! NORMANDY, 19, RITENOUR, 13 The story of Normandy scoring here might well be a record of Mel Swyers' accomplishments. lt was Mel who went over the first touchdown, Mel who intercepted a pass and tossed the ball for the second touchdown, Mel who slipped through the Ritenour team for the third touch- down, and Mel who played a brilliant defensive game. This kind of playing gave Normandy the victory, despite their visitors, aerial attack and a Viking misplay on which Rite- nour scored. NORMANDY, 6, WELLSTON, 13 Thanksgiving day and the battle for the g'Little Brow lugw! While the Wellston Trojans came back to our camp seeking vengeance for their opening defeat, Normandy fa were looking for a repeat performance. Both team had ii proved, and neither could gain an advantage until the ei of the first half, when Wellston tallied. The Trojans aga scored by taking to the air in the latter half. But the Vikin were not out of the contest. Slowly they rolled Wellstt back until Swyers lugged the ball across for the lone R and Green points. As the game and season ended, Swye and Ken Schneider were leading the team in another dri downfield. But the referee's gun sounded, and footbz came to a close at Normandy High. The driving, fightii spirit of the ,43 team will be carried over to next yeai squad by veteran players, the team that reports to Maj next September will be of championship caliber.
