f'0H ALMOST tlirec-quarters of a century, standing
as a land mark Nupon a western hilltop," the
Tower Clock of Normandy has marked off the
seconds and minutes as they pass into years. In its infancy,
the building it crowns was a theological school, but in 1922,

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

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.

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

non the respect of their fellow Classmates and the
HE class of ,44 leaves Uthe western hill-topw facing
problems greater than any previous graduating seniors.
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. Whether the strife be the

Senior science successfully presents a

the study of first-aid, health, navigation,

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

F ALL sports. wrestling is one of the best body-builders:
yet it holds little interest for the average Normandy stu-
dent. 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
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.

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

for old INormandy that made any loyal boosteris blood tingle and
gave them the urge to get in there themselves and murder the
Without the cheerleaders the color and excitement would not
be on hand at the games of the Vikings. Maybe next year even

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

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

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.

OUBLE doses of hard luck hung on the heels of a de-
termined MBB Football squad, and the season ended with
a record of two wins, live losses, and a tie. 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

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. The center, newcomer
Lynton Bauer, showed the Vikings' opponents how they do it in
Brooklyn. Lynton was a welcome addition because of his height
and level-beaded playing. Starting at the guard positions were
lra Smith and Hlionniew Bergmeier, who played tip-top ball all
the way. These starters were supported by a large group of re-
serves, including Johnny Bowman, "ON" Chalfant, Walter Haller,
and Dale Portmann.

the play progressed, four powerful
teams appeared: Crawfords, Schmidts,

Crawfords were pitted against the
Schraders in the final contest. It was a

championship, while Schraders won the

grades. Keen interest was shown es-

HOUGH volleyball has in other years been
a rather obscure girls, sport at Normandy.
there was a record number who tried out
for class teams in 744. The girls, about 125 of them,
were enthusiastic about the sport and were sorry
when the nets and big balls were put away in favor
of bats and leather mits.
Many of the girls suffered numerous aches and
pains after the first practice of the season, but,
coached by Miss Dorothy? Clark and Mrs. Helen
Dunbar, soon they renewed their skill at getting
the ball up and over the net. Some, after weeks
of practice, became experts, tor so they sayl.

that was a mighty big problem! No matter what

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-
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.
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,
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.
Every year at Christmas time, the Orchesis and
the vocal music department give a program. Wllhe

by Nllhe Little Match Cirlf' the story of a poor
little girl who sold matches and had many beauti-
ful dreams in which she was the principal char-
acter. Some of the leading roles in this program
were taken by Marion Ross, Evelyn Foelsch, June
Murphy, and Doe Hard, who shared roles as the
little match girl. Betty .lean Jackson beautifully
portrayed the fairy grandmother, and Carol Clayton
and Rosemary Kruse played the father and mother.

posium, in which each group presented a dance.
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

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

of prospective members. The girls demonstrate
their skill before Mrs. Schneider and the

sary techniques and indicate their willingness
to spend long, hard hours in practice are ad-
milled lo the group.

54 HE PURPOSE of the Hi-Y is to create,
maintain, and extend throughout the
school and community the high
standards of Christian characterf' There it is
3-the Hi-Y in a nutshell. 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

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.
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.
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.

an absolute necessity to Miss Xviebe, who is very busy with
actual medical care. Not only' do they keep an accurate

UESDAY afternoon after school, the Bible Club meets
under the sponsorship of Miss Dorothy' Clark. led
by Fern Hush. the cluhis president. and jane Core,
the secretary. 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.

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
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,

Striving to maintain the paper,s high stand-

chaos amazingly comes your year book.
Work on the Saga begins at the very opening of
the school year and continues until the book
ugoes to press" in the spring. 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.
Layouts, cover, and theme are the initial prob-
lems. Advertising managers hound the staff
for more ads. Service editors collect and organ-
ize volumes of information for the service di-
vision. 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. Every one at
one time or another is firmly convinced that
the V14 Saga will never come out. But here it is!

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
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.

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

HE RANKS of the graduated classes are
changing colors from red and green to
khaki, blue, and green through a blend-
ing of red, white, and blue. Not too long ago
they were all here-studying in classrooms,
waiting in line at the cafeteria, talking in the
halls, lounging on the campus. Today they are
scattered throughout the world-from California
to North Carolina, from East Indies to Italy. Let
us salute the fighting Vikings!

We were unable to obtain any in-
formation about the members of the
classes of 1925 or 1927.
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
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-
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.

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-

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.
