Students all, we see six years pass at Nor-
mandy before graduation. This panorama we in-
vite you to witness. The 1946 Saga carries you
along the way we pass.
Preparation for life in a democracy--that is our
purpose. Perhaps we do not know this as sev-
enth graders but we know it as Seniors. Teach-
ers, friends, experiences-we see them all, bear-
ing us toward this goal.
We are not educated solely in the classroom.
The baseball diamond and the basketball court,
the Cinder track and the hockey field, are like-
wise theaters of learning in which we practice
sportsmanship, educating our minds as well as
our bodies. Numerous interests, the clubs and
activities we enter into, iill our days to bursting.
And there is fun sparkling through it all. In the
end we also remember the dances and assem-
blies, Class Days and Christmases, and the
lovely season's-end May Pete. We remember so
much along our way, the six years of which we
herewith hand you the record.

Looking large and a bit terrifying, the portals of
the lunior Building open to receive us as seventh
graders. We leave through the Gymnasium doors
in cap and gown, carrying diplomas. ln parting,
the Commencement speaker tells us the world
belongs to our generation, that we can make of it
and of ourselves what We Will.
The speakers Words are a challenge! At Nor-
mandy we learn to fill a useful place in society,
to live with classmates as friends, to help and
share with each other. Thus trained, we graduate,
fully prepared and eager to meet the challenge!
Education is the key to a life that progresses
and makes the journey from youth to age full
and fruitful. At Normandy, we seek and gain
Knowledgeg and with it, the Understanding coun-
seled by sages of the Past. Our six years train
us to make the Future all that We hope it may be.
As it has gone with us before, our education will
go on through the years ahead.

Always ready to cooperate and art' '
in student activities is the Mothers' Club. They
have helped out with lunior School activities
of the Girl Scouts and the Music Department
during the l945 46 school year.

Student activity programs were held at most of
the P.T.A.'s monthly meetings. Retired president
Port and newly elected president Rhoton felt that
these programs were a tremendous success.
The P.T.A. announces that they intend to inter-
pret the school's program to the Community next
year with the help of the faculty, Board of Educa
tion, and the students. A council of representatives
from each of the elementary schools will be organ-
ized to perfect this plan.
Upon the shoulders of the Board of Education falls
the responsibility of making policy for the entire
Normandy Consolidated School District. This group
works conscientiously for the betterment of facilities
at the high school and various elementary schools.
Their continued success in the guidance of school
activities has gained the complete confidence and
respect of the whole school district. To them falls
the task of planning for the further development
and improvement of the schools. New buildings
lor the high school are already in prospect.

Going our way has sometimes been difficult
going, especially in recent years when student
enrollment has increased. In spite of difficul-
ties, our administrators have always managed
to see that Normandy continued to provide the
kind of school experiences its students needed
and deserved. Problems have always ironed
out when they applied their ingenuity.
Fred B. Miller, Superintendent of the Nor-
mandy Public Schools, strives for perfection
and efficiency. Through his work with the Fac-
ulty and the Board these goals have generally
been obtained. The Normandy schools pro-
vide fine teachers, good equipment, a well-
designed curriculum, and sponsor a full pro-
gram of interesting extra-curricular activities.

High school principal R. D. Shouse
believes in democracy and works to
see that democratic methods are em'
ployed in Normandy's classrooms, so
that her students will come forth
equipped to live democratically. He is
also due credit for his effort in systema-
tizing the complicated running opera-
tions of our large high school.
The winning smile and congenial
manner of Mr. H. L. Green have made
him innumerable friends as assistant
principal. Troubled students never
hesitate to consult him about their dif-

ticulties because they know that he will endeavor
to find a solution satisfactory to everyone involved.
He is an ardent Normandy booster and through his
work has made Normandy ct bigger and better
school. His wise decisions have set many students
on the road to becoming good citizens.
New to Normandy's campus this year, Mr. Potter
tackled the job ot administering the Iunior High
School and evolved a system that has won the ad-
miration ot his teaching statt as well as the respect
of throngs of youngsters who pour in and out ot the
Iunior Building daily. These lunior students feel the
warmth and friendliness of his personality and Work
earnestly to meet the goals he sets up for them.
Equipped with a set ot administrators such as
these, the Normandy schools will continue to de-
velop and improve beyond the high standards al-
ready obtained in the district. The l946 Saga
salutes the school leaders and Wishes them well.

Helping to maintain Normandy's reputation
as a beautiful school are the custodians, who
devote many hours to keeping the buildings
and grounds clean, neat and attractive. In the
fall they rake leaves and in winter shovel snow
and melt ice on drives and walks so that
spills can be eliminated
Whenever they are asked to do so, cus-
todians are glad to cooperate with the stag-
ing of plays, giving of dances and other night-

time activities on the campus. They direct
traffic and stay when the festivities are over
to make the buildings ready for classes the next
day. Mr. Talley, chief of maintenance, is the
capable supervisor of the custodians.
Since good food is an essential factor in
everyday living, Normandy is equipped with
a most efficient cafeteria which functions under
the management of Mrs. Blanche Wood. Each
day the cafeteria staff plans and prepares a

well-balanced menu for the students who flock in
from classes clamoring for lunch. Organizing and
operating the cafeteria is not an easy task, but co-
operation from all concerned makes it a pleasant,
economical, convenient place to eat.
lf it weren't for those dependable bus drivers and
teachers who double as bus drivers, students of
the sprawling Normandy school district would either
overcrowd streetcars or walk to school. On cold,
rainy mornings the orange and black buses are a
particularly welcome sight to those students who
live far from school. Bus routes are so arranged that
students do not have to walk more than a block to
the nearest stop, and student loads are discharged
in the bus terminal on the campus, from which the
boys and girls may conveniently pass to their vari-
Supervised by Mr. Winder, the Transportation De-
partment serves the school district very effectively.

Traditionally, faculty members are the gray
boards of a school societyp the people with the
know-it-ally grave, rather aloof folk who dwell
in an intellectual world apart. Funny, at Nor-
mandy they don't seem that way to us.
Really. we can't sum them up in a word.
"Friendly" would describe them very well. So

COllKILjlIl'-j.H So would "lolly Good Fellows" as
they accompany us on tield trips or sponsor
our social affairs. "Understanding" would do
the trick, too, when there are problems to be
considered that might range all the way from
wliat to wear to a dance to how to win a
scholarship. "Too darned clever tor their own
good," some of us say when they see through
our cherished student schemes, although in
the end well, mostly, anyway they turn out
to be right about the schemes after all.
"Personality kids!" We don't mean to be
flippant or disrespectful, honestly. That's how
we like to talk, getting a huge kick out of ref
ferring olthandedly to one and all, teacher or
classmate. Personality may not corne with
B.A.'s and M.A.'s and Ph.D.'s, but teachers at
Normandy certainly have it.

The best tribute we can pay thern is to suc-

is to say, "We like them. We respect them.
We thank them for helping us."

The class of '51 this year climbed the first
rung of the Normandy High School knowledge
ladder. This,first step meant a bit of readjust-
ing on seventh graders' parts to new surround
ings, activities and friends. Cn their first day
they were issued program cards detailing their
various subjects. This was followed by an
orientation course which introduced the newe
corners to school life and to the fields avail-
able to them in the coming years.
Seventh graders enthusiastically tackled
their study of English, one of the most vital
courses in the curriculum. They began to
understand the "whats" and "whys" of our
native tongue. lt was pointed out to them that
lawyers, doctors, statesmen, authors and re-
porters all need a command of the English
language. Poems, stories and skits in their
literature books all played an important part
in their English education.
Not to be left out of consideration of impore
tant world affairs, seventh graders applied
themselves earnestly to the study of social
0l'l'l'l6lI'l y 5 Clgff
science. While world governments struggled to
align themselves under the leadership ot the
United Nations Organization these students
worked in their classes to keep abreast ot the
progress being made at the conterence tables.
One live-wire group staged an actual confer-
ence complete to costumes, tlags, and speeches.
Moving pictures, map studies and field trips
provided a change from the regular classroom
Figuring commission, interest and percentage
problems kept seventh graders busy in their
math classes and at their study tables doing
home work. Many a summer vacation's rnoney-
raising activity will pay real profits to these
youngsters as a result of the ability to corn-
pute developed in these classes. To add inter-
est this year, house plans were constructed
in some of the classes. These courses are
caretully planned to show the practical ap-
plication ot mathematics to everyday life. Our
tuture engineers, drattsmen and architects will
emerge from these classrooms.

"What makes a ship float?" "How many
miles away is Mars?" "CDf what does soil con'
sist?" "How fast does light travel?" lnauiring
minds bombarded teachers with these and
dozens of other questions, and students
searched textbooks and reference books dili-
gently for more and more information about
fascinating and mysterious scientific principles.
The science courses offered limitless opportuni-
ties for extra credit projects through which stu-
dents were able to demonstrate to their own
satisfaction the prinfiples they learned in their
Artistic expression found full scope in the
construction of advertising posters, color wheels,
still life poses and creative drawings. Most
seventh graders agreed that art was a top
ranking study with them. The lobby of the
lunior Building was profuse with color and def
sign all year long as displays were tastefully
arranged in it from month to month.

Sewing and mechanics are the only voca-
tional subjects offered to seventh graders. The
boys explored a bit of sheet metal and wood-
working and learned something ot the mar-
vels ot electricity. Girls made and proudly
wore their gay colored broomstick skirts and
blouses. In these subjects the amount com-
pleted by each student depends on his capacity
to learn and his liking tor real work.
Two modern gymnasiums resounded with
shouts of enthusiasm as seventh grade boys
and girls entered wholeheartedly into their
gym classes. The lower corridors of the Iunior
Building likewise resounded with strains of
well-balanced harmony as young voices under-
took musical training.
Five more rungs up the ladder will lead these
enterprising seventh graders out ot Normandy
into colleges or into vocations ot their own
choosing. May each year be as successful as
the first one has been.

If one were to explore the mechanics of the

eighth graders can build their future high

a foundation are found in the subjects of Eng-
lish, mathematics, science, and social studies.
English is taught in every phase of the word.
Young literary aspirants study grammar, com-
position writing, and read literary works of
famous authors chosen from the well stocked
library in the lunior building.
An eighth grade social class teaches the stu-
dents American history combined with current

If you ever wonder just how a delicious ap-
ple pie is made or how pork chops are fried
so tasty and golden brown, the answer is found
in the junior foods kitchen. The girls are taught
the values of the various foods in calcium,
proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, at the same
time they are being taught how to prepare
many appetizing dishes.
Combining the fundamental principles of
biology, chemistry, physics and astronomy all
in one, the result is the eighth grade science

spotlight was Anita Lawler, who was crowned
St. Pat's Queen at the biggest dance of the
year. Through popularity polls, Denny Galla-
gher and Mary Ann Dunn were chosen to serve
in the Saga Queen's court at the annual May

makes up the greater part of the round of ac-

There is correlation between the world litera-
ture of the English class and the world history
classes, in which students see how the chang-
ing pattern of history has always reflected it-
self in the writings of the times. These world
history classes review the story of rnan from
ancient to modern times.
ln the mathematics classes a large percent-
age of the Sophomore class bends earnestly
over new propositions and rules as students
tackle plain geometry with all of its difficulties.
Well constructed workbooks help ease these
difficulties in most of the classes.

Reminiscing over this crowded and exciting
year, the eleventh graders may well be proud
of themselves, for the class of '47 has proved
itself a capable and energetic group in all its
undertakings. Led by their officers, Ioe Moore,
president: Doug Finley, vice-presidentg Dave
Klasing, secretary, and lack Radcliff, treasurer,
the juniors planned and put over a successful
This year the traditional athletic honors were
received by Doug Finley, Bob Ries, Dave Klasf
ing, Dale Portman, Dewey Millay, Ioe Moore,
Roger Cagle, Bob I-lolthaus, Dale Heinick, Don
Vlfaldron, McCorkle, Thies, Likes and Fitz-
The eleventh grade girls must be mentioned
for their part in sports. Their ability and co-
operation in after school sports won wide-
spread admiration from outside spectators.
In the music department, the class had much
outstanding talent. AlIfCounty Grchestra inf
eniora oming I9
cluded cellists Lora lean Rossel and Lois Law-
ler in first and fifth seat, respectively.
The popularity spotlight fell on lean Flori as
Harvest Queen candidate, Nancy Kopplin as
candidate for Valentine Queen, and Mary
Carol Arnold, Vivian Smith, Donna Glick and
Sharon Roth as candidates for St. Pat's Queen.
Representing the class in the Saga Queen's
court were Marilyn Heid and loe Moore, most
popular eleventh graders.
World affairs of this past year have lent a
new interest to history and economics classes
as the postwar problems were presented one
by one in a neversending line. Here the voters
of tomorrow began to understand these prob-
lems and discuss a solution.
The values of foreign languages have not
been underrated by this crop of seniors-to-be.
With the need for international understanding
so great, language study as a means to pro-
mote this becomes increasingly valuable.

edge of the functions of our government and
of the mental makeup of human beings.
Offering solid geometry and advanced alge-
bra, the math department expounded to stu-
dents interested in science, engineering and
medicine the fundamentals and some advanced
techniques in the number and figure sciences.
The work in solid geometry was made simpler
through the making of models to show more
clearly' the principles of geometry.
Artistic designs and patterns and a great
deal of practical experience was available to
eleventh grade art students. Painting, model-
ing statuettes, molding pottery and designing
jewelry all offered outlets for artistic expres-
sion. Exhibits throughout the year afforded
parents the opportunity of seeing and admir-
ing the work accomplished.

Normandy 24, Edwardsville 6
Muck and rrrrre were the main enemies of
the Vikings as they sloshed their way to a 24
to ti triumph over the Tigers of Edwardsville.
The Vikings got off to an early start when Gar-
rison drove over the center of the line from the
fl yard line in the first quarter. The Edwards-
ville terrrrr fought hack and the score was tied,
ti-ti, at the half. An inspired Viking eleven
carrie out to the field at the start of the second
lralf and soon drove over for another "6" when
Swyers cnt off tackle for the touchdown. A few
rnirrrrtes later Bergnreier scooted around end
llfi yards for another tally. ln the fourth quar-
ter with the Edwardsville team thoroughly
lroaten, Swyers cut through the line for another
score. Second and third stringers finished the
rrarrre ont. The final score, 24 to 6, Vikings.
Normandy 18, Kirkwood 6
The Vikings retired victorious from the Pio-
neer field with an l8 to E3 triumph. Early in the
first quarter the Vikings put on the drive for
'irray dirt," hitting it when Bergmeier plunged
over fronr the 2-yard line for the first score of
the garrre. The second quarter was scoreless
until the Vikings tried to punt. The punt was
lnlocked and the Pioneers went over the stripe
for the coveted six points. The point after
touchdown was not rrrade. Coming out at the

ternately carrying the ball. Having driven to
the Kirkwood 30-yard line on power plays the
Vikings took to the air. Bauer heaved one to
Swyers, who danced over the goal line tor
our second tally. A few minutes later Swyers
drove over for another score to make the count

Normandy 6. Webster 6
A 6-6 score for the only tied game oi the
season was the result of Normandy's battle
with the Statesmen of Webster. Tying for the
county championship, Normandy and Webster
fought down to the last wire with neither team
coming out ahead. The first quarter brought
no score to the struggling teams but at the mid-
way point in the second period, Bergmeier
broke loose around end to put Normandy in
the lead, 6 to U. Netzela's attempted placement
was short. The half ended with no other scor-

however, the Vikings hit trouble with the States-
men's passing attack and Webster passed to
a touchdown, tying the game at 6 all. Web-
ster's pass for the extra point was knocked
down incomplete. The clock ran out with the
score tied, 6 to 6.
Normandy 14, McBride 0
The McBride Colonnaders were entirely sub'
dued by the Viking eleven in their hard-fought
tussle. Throughout the first half the teams bat-
tled at midfield, but the Vikings showed a bet-
ter scoring punch than McBride. Midway in
the third quarter, Normandy's all-district back,
Ron Bergmeier, broke loose for 30 yards around
end and the first score of the game. Bergmeier
also converted, making the score 7 to 0. A few
minutes later Swyers and Bergmeier combined
on a downfield drive, Bergmeier going over
from the 2-yard line. Again "Bergie" converted,
making the score l4 to O. In the fourth quarter
Normandy's attack slowed down, but McBride
also failed to score. The game ended in a l4
to O triumph for the Vikings.
Normandy 0, U. City 20
Toppled from the ranks of the undefeated,
Normandy lost to their arch rivals, the Indians

of U. City. It was an "off day" for the Vikings,
for their "Steamroller offense" was held in
check, with the Indians pushing over for a
touchdown early in the second quarter. Dur-
ing the remaining minutes of the first half, the
teams battled at midfield, the half ending with
the score of 7 to U, U. City.
At the start of the third quarter it seemed as
if the Majormen's offensive was beginning to
click, but several fumbles at crucial moments
weighed heavily against the Vikings. While
Normandy's offensive was held in check, the
Indians romped over for a touchdown in the
third and one in the fourth quarter, putting the
game "on ice." The final score was 20 to O,
U. City, the Vikings tasting defeat for the first
time of the season.
Normandy 20, Ritenour 0
Displaying a real scoring punch, the Major-
men trounced the Huskies from Ritenour with
a sound 20 to O triumph. During the first quar-
ter the Vikings were held to a scoreless tie,
although repeatedly driving deep into Ritenour
territory. At the start of the second quarter,
with Ritenour on their own 12-yard line, Oris
Crowley recovered a Ritenour fumble in the
end zone for the first score of the game. Berg-
meier converted, adding another point. The
score remained the same at the half. At the
beginning of the third quarter the team of
Bergmeier and Swyers began to click, with
Swyers climaxing the drive with a plunge
through center, good for Normandy's second
touchdown, moving over from the 3-yard line.
Bergmeier's kick was good, giving the Vikings

The boys, clad in their red letternian sweat-

Cheerleaders appear at all of the pep assem-

Their shouts and yells are heard all through

never-ending bursts of support for the Vikings
and their rousing cheers give the team an ad-

George Bruno at the first wrestling practice of
the year the coming season held promise of
nothing more than a lot of hard work. In years
past wrestling has not captured the interest of

the season a success, and proceeded to do just
that, and to make quite a reputation for them-
selves in the doing.
Witti the thoughts of the coming State Meet

with a record of four wins, four losses and oi tie.
After a disastrous defeat at the hands of
Clayton, 32 to O, the Vikings revamped their
attack and rolled over Ritenour, 24 to O. Fol-
lowing their victory over Clayton they held
Maplewoods Blue Devils to a O-O tie score. ln
high spirits, the "B'ers" outlasted Kirkwood, i6
to l4. Their joy was shortlived, however, for
they suffered two consecutive defeats at tho
hands of McBride, 7 to O, and Webster, l3 to O.
Sparkling backfield play from Taylor and
Gallagher dominated the next two games as
Normandy defeated Soldan, l3 to O, and their
arch-rivals, University City, 13 to 6. The season
ended with South Side coming out on the long
end of a 21 to O count.
This year's "B" tearn should provide all the
necessary material for future Varsity teanis.

Batter up! With the coming of spring the
sound of wood meeting leather was heard from
the Viking diamond. Gloves, balls, bats and
uniforms came out of the stockroom. Under the
critical eye of Coach Arthur Shipherd the Vik-
ing diarnondrnen were preparing for the corn-
ing season. With a veteran squad returning,
great things were expected of this year's team
as practice games got under Way.

Starting off in the right direction, the Vikings
eked out a victory over Blewett by the score
of 2 to O. The steady pitching oi Bob Butler
and Orville Chalfant combined with Bill Netf
zela's hitting were in the rnain responsible for
the victory. Following the Blewett ganie, the
Normandy nine was defeated, G to 5, by the
Blue lackets of Beaumont, Willie Willenburg

With a large number of veteran members
returning to the l946 team, the Viking cinder-
men looked forward eagerly to a most success-
ful season. The Riegertmen romped over five
opponents in dual meets, annexing victories
over Blewett, C. B. C., Beaumont, St. Louis Uni-
versity l-Iigh and McBride.
Early in April the Vikings made a journey
to Columbia to participate in the State Indoor
Meet. The squad returned home with second
place tucked under their belts, boasting one
state champion, Captain Ronnie Bergmeier,
who raced across the finish line ahead of all
competitors in the sixty-yard dash.
On April 26th the Vikings went north to par-
ticipate in the Mark Twain Relays held at Han-
nibal, Missouri. Placing in every event except
the mile, the Vikings finished in second
place again behind the powerful Univer-
sity City Indians. "Cowboy" Ronnie Berg-
meier came home with three medals, sym-
bolic of his victories in the 100 and 220-
yard dashes, and his running of anchor
man on the winning 880-yard relay team.
Al Michell took first place in the broad
jump with a leap of I9 feet, llVz inches.
Returning home, the Vikings immedi-
ately began preparations for District, State
Outdoor and University City Invitational
Meets. The Riegertmen had romped off
with the guest trophy at the latter for the
past four seasons, but this year the Vik-
ings were determined to take the meet
trophy from the University City Indians.
However, in the final tally the Vikings
amassed a total of 65 5X7 points and came
home with second place laurels and the

the event with a record-breaking 22:6. "Bergie"
also won the century dash and competed on
the medley relay for a total of llV4 points.
Being especially strong in weights, the Vikings
won the senior shot and discus and garnered
a second and third in the junior shot. Nor-
M ing fjkincfacld
mandy's medley relay team of Bergmeier, Swy-
ers, Bauer and Holthaus won that event in fast
time. Al Michell gathered in third place in the
high hurdles and Mel Swyers placed third in
the low sticks. The Vikings finished second to
the powerful lndians in total points, the lndians
gathering ll85 7 points against the Vikings'

On May l3th the Viking trackmen journeyed
to Public Schools Stadium to compete with
other schools of the district for laurels in the
annual District Meet. Scoring 36 points in the
senior division the Vikings came home with
third place honors, finishing behind University
City and Beaumont.
Ronnie Bergmeier was once again the high
scorer for the Riegertmen, gaining firsts in the
century and 220-yard dashes. His times of lO:2
in the hundred and 22:6 in the furlong were ex-
cellent lor the SOCJCJY track. Lynton Bauer took
second in the 44Ofyard dash and Al Michell

into their shoes to take over where they left oft
and carry on tor Normandy.
This year's team had an excellent opportu-
nity to see golt at its best when the Western
Open was played in St. Louis at Sunset Coun-
try Club. After seeing real championship play
the boys walked oit the green iilled with visions
ot eagles and birdies they hope to make them-
selves next season.
Under the expert guidance ot Mr. Iohn Krab-
lin, golf is once again rising to the prominence
it deserves on Normandys campus.
Intramural sports are sponsored by Mr.
Arthur Shipherd in order to give non-
Varsity members a chance to participate
in the sports program. Since the start of
intramural play some years ago, interest
in the games has been steadily increas-
ln the football intramurals it was evi-
dent from the start that two Senior teams,
the Mannheimers and Streckers, had the
inside track. Both teams showed power
in offense and defense. ln the final play-
offs, however, the Mannheimers' superior
passing attack accounted for a 7 to O tri-
umph over the Streckers for the champions
At the close of the football season a
large field of teams swung into the basket-
ball season with even more zeal. Through
the entire competition the Seuberts and
tho Franklins remained to play in the final
game, which ended in a 22 to 20 victory
for the Franklins.
Volleyball, a co-ed sport at Normandy,
likewise drew a large field of entries. Two
teams, Swyers and Grammaticoff, showed
strength and finally were matched against
each other in the championship games.
The Grainmaticoffs took two straight to
win the title.
The intramural program interests the
entire student body as homeroom students
and teachers alike rally to support their
teams. Champ outfits take great pride in

tfnlri weather and wet fields did not keep
enthusiastic hockey girls from soaring to lofty
heights this year, as they claimed three out of
five of their Varsity games and all four class
aarnes on Sports Day.
As the first girls' sport of the year, hockey
often finds rnany stiff and complaining girls
who, at the first few practices, are sure that
one more swing of their stick will surely fin-
ish them for good. When the girls' spirits lag,
however, their coaches, Miss Mary lane
Welsch and Mrs. Helen Dunbar, are always
on the job to see that practice is never shirkcd
and that every possible skill is learned.
Normandy was the only school to defeat all
four of its opponents on Sports Day, a big
event for county high school class teams held
at Washington University at the start of the
hockey season. In separate interehigh school
games the Normandy girls bowed to Villa
Duchesne and The Principia but were victorious
over University City, Maplewood, and Ritenour.
For their biggest event, however, the girls
must wait until later in the year the award

This season of volleyball has been an un-
usually successful one at Normandy. In the
first place a huge number of girls turned out
to participate in this sport at the beginning of
the year. Then, at the big tournament which is
held at University City High School, our Var-
sity volleyball team came off Champs, thanks
to practice and excellent coaching.
ln the first game of the tournament the volley-
ballers gained confidence when they defeated
Clayton, 39-9. They met Ritenour next, but this
was not much of a fight with Viking volley-
ballers winning, 37-7. Then came the toughies,
Fairview. This game was very close and there
were many tense moments, but again the Vike
ing volleyballers were on top, winning, 18-13.
"We are in the final game," was a cry which
:ame from every girl. The preliminary games
were over and the game for the championship
was left to be played. The teams took their
places on the court and the ball was served.
Our wide-awake girls did not let one player
trick give University City an extra point. The
Viking volleyballers played hard and came
"1'lI gd if," ix thc' vry fluring outdoor mllvylirlll
through, winning from University City, 27-16,
and carrying off the County championship.
There was more interest and will to be bet-
ter volleyball players this year and the girls
proved their skills on the court in this Very
thrilling and successful season.

Skillful maneuvering and excellent team-
work combined with speed and perfect co-
ordination brouaht the Vikinqette basketeers
throuqh the season with one of the niost fault-
less records ever displayed here.
The ninth qrade teani hung up a perfect rec-
ord by defeating their opponents in all of their
four games, The Sophornores won all but one
of their five games, and the luniors, this year's
black sheep of the Vikinqettes, won three out
of their five games.
We're losinq a qreat qroup of athletes this
lune when the Seniors graduate. They achieved
a perfect basketball record in their last year
by winning all six of their qarnes. The coaches,
Mrs. Helen Dunbar and Miss Mary lane
Welsch, had a difficult tirne choosing the Vai-
sity, not because of a lack of aood rnaterial,
but because of the over-abundance of it. Their
aood judanient is borne out by the fact that
the team picked eliminated all competition.

considerably were: Ninth Grade, Dorothy Tap

ln the spring when a young man's fancy
lightly turns to thoughts of love, the Normandy
girls turn their fancy to that of the diamond and
softball, though they do not ignore spring's
Softball is one of the favorite games on the
campus. The season is usually very short be-
cause of other spring activities, but this year
the girls were determined to make a long and
successful season of it and started practice
before the frost was ready to leave for the
beginning of spring, shivering their way
through several practice sessions before the
balmier breezes began to blow.
Skillfully taught by Mrs. Helen Dunbar, girls'
physical education director, and Miss Mary
Iane Welsch, the girls eventually learned to
play good softball and had many a thrilling
and hotly contested game. ln their periodic
after school practices, they were given individ-
ual help by the coaches, who pointed out their
faults and helped them to correct imperfections.
As the softball season rolled around to a

close and the bats and balls were laid to rest
in the stock room, the girls agreed that his had
been a year of many thrills in winning and
losing and trying hard to be the best of sports-
men. Underclassmen are looking forward al-
ready to next spring.

If you have seen a group of girls about 9:30
on a Monday night and they were talking
about floating the back stroke and someone
almost drowned, chances are that you have
met the Normandy Swimming Club.
Once a week these water enthusiasts make
their way to the Washington University came
pus swimming pool, where they enter four
classes, beginning, intermediate and advanced
swimming, and life saving. Most of the girls
start in the beginning class just to brush up
on the fundamentals. After passing the begin!
ners' test they go into the intermediate group.
To be an advanced swimmer requires real
skill in the aquatic art, but to get out of it
and enter the ranks of the life savers means
the student is an expert. However, the Nor-
mandy girls' record gives evidence of their
superiority in this sport. Of the twenty meme
bers, ten are learning the art of life saving.
The club can have only twenty members be-
cause of limited space. Any girl missing two

Skating is one of the two co-ed athletic ven-
tures at Normandy. The Skating Club, just re-
cently organized, is fast becoming one of Nor-
niandy's most popular clubs.
With the first touch of winter, skaters start
shining their silver blades, and the zero weather
finds theni visiting one of the lakes in this
vicinity, Trying their skill on the ice for the
first time in a year, they seem a little shaky.
However, they soon get the feel of it again and
glide smoothly on to a healthful season of fun
and exercise. When the zero weather turns
to subezero, the undaunted skaters go to one
of the skating rinks located near Normandy.
The arrival of spring is just another chal-
lenge to this group, and they greet it with roller
skates in hand. Every Thursday night is skat-
ing night. The only thing that halts the activi-
ties of this organization is the closing of school
for the suninier. Even then, they have one
last hayride or picnic to close their season.
Mr. Felix Serafini, sponsor of the group, in
vites anyone interested in skating to join it,
whether the person is a beginner or an expert

Crack! The sharp sound of the hockey stick
hitting the ball echoed across the girls' athletic
field. This year for the first time the sticks were
in the hands of the Iunior G. A. A., but the girls
handled them like veterans through the slush
and cold weather. Hockey, one of the oldest
sports in the Senior high, was introduced into
the Iunior high this fall in the hope that the
girls would be prepared for the future varsity
and class teams. They really went for it with
hope of becoming a Vikingette.
When the north wind began to blow and
the snow began to fall the Iunior hockey en-
thusiasts exchanged their sticks for the basket-
ball. ln this the girls learned the meaning of
the words cooperation and team work, under
the leadership of Miss Norma Kissner, club
sponsor. The group also held an intramural
basketball tournament which provided fun and
frolic for all participants.
Next, volleyball was ushered into the lunior
gym. Although it is a much milder and less
active sport than basketball or hockey, it is
just as popular. First, the girls learn the fun-
damentals of the game and later such tech-
niques as "set ups" and "spikes" The volley-
ball season is usually cut short when the girls
get a touch of spring fever and head for the

Although volleyball has its place in their
favor the lunior athletes are always anxious
to get outside in the spring air and play the
more active game of softball.
"Play ball" rings across the athletic field as
the girls grab a bat and try their skills at soft-
ball. There are always many spills connected
with this game, and the moans and groans are

plentiful, but the girls forget them and give cr
mighty cheer when one of their teammates
smacks a homer.
As the end of school rolls around the girls
sadly put the bat and ball aside in the stock
room with volleyballs, basketballs and the
newly acquired hockey sticks, to wait for the
next year, when another group of anxious learn-
ers will take them up in their steps of progress
to becoming Vikingettes.
The lunior G. A. A. is one of the largest and
most active organizations in the school. Twice
a week you will find the girls out working hard
for a letter which they can earn by participat-
ing in any of the sports offered. Extra points
are also given to managers and captains.
"Start at the bottom and work up" could
easily be the theme of the club, for the girls
understand that they must start their sports
careers early and work their way to the top
on one of the varsity teams in the Senior high.
Versatile as they are, they find time for nu-
merous G. A. A. social activities in addition to
their basket shooting. Dances, parties, and
general fun go along with membership.

Newly named this year, the Audio Aid De-
partment is striving for greater efficiency and
service. Their director, Mr. E. Fred Miller, came
to Normandy in mid-year to receive the group
from Mr. Galt Schrader. The installation of
some new, permanent equipment purchased
by the P. T. A. has been welcomed. Many
members are working toward licenses and per-
manent jobs as radio engineers and are utiliz-
ing the facilities that are now available. The
boys perform their jobs faithfully, however dif-
ficult they may be.

One of the most useful organizations is corn-
posed of the Visual Aid boys. Members operf
ate movie projectors in all classes from Eng-
lish to physics. The department runs under the
supervision of Mr. E. Fred Miller. An efficient
system of records is kept to assure the show-
ing of films and to keep projectors in perfect
condition. Anyone who joins accepts much re-
sponsibility but those who are members enjoy
their work and hope to obtain extra knowledge
which they can use in the future.

some in their new maroon robes which were
earned for them through the efforts of the Nor-
mandy Music Association. In return, the
chorus provided entertainment at two of the
concerts sponsored by the Association. Their
repertoire included selections from liqht opera
and popular sonqs of the day. Audiences will
not soon forget the perfect blendinq of voices
in such old favorites as "Make Believe" and
the lovely "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes."
These choristers were sincerely interested in
good musicianship and worked earnestly to

Practice, talent and enthusiasm! These are
the factors that account for the excellence of
the Senior Orchestra, which enrolls the top-
flight musicians on the campus.
Their full schedule this year included as-
semblies, P.T.A. programs, Music Association
concerts, County Festival, and May Pete. Se-
lections ranged from Kern's "Smoke Gets in
Your Eyes" to the intricate Bach classic, "Prel-
ude and Fugue in D Minor."
Out of this array of public appearances the
County Festival more than any other crowned
the efforts of the orchestra. After it was over
and the judges' comments were noted, mem-
bers felt fully rewarded for their effort.
Eight individual players were singled out
for recognition by being chosen for All-State
Orchestra in competition with other state
high schools. Carole Baldwin led the bassoon
section and Monti Lawson occupied second
chair. Bill Major played third horn and Eileen
Farmer was fifth flutist. Louise Mahaffy occu-
pied first chair in the second violin section and
Virginia Smith represented the violas in third
chair. Lora Rossel took first and Lois Lawler
fifth chair in the cello section. All-County Or-
chestra also drew twelve of its players from
the Normandy Senior Orchestra.
Pins were awarded to the twentyffive mem-
bers with the highest number of points, earned
by faithful practice and attendance, office-
holding and private instruction. Frank Maineri,
for his individual artistry, was made concert
master and first chair violinist.
Mr. Lawrence Guenther, director, gave skill-
ful tutelage to individual orchestra members
and conducted the group as a whole with a
keen sense of musicianship which drew an
excellent response from the orchestra.

fiudioncos commented, "Beautiful," "Un-
usual" and "VJell done," when they heard
the Senior Girls' Glee Club provide the musical
background for "The luggler of Notre Dame"
at the annual Christmas program. This was
the Glee Club's first public appearance, in
which they demonstrated their musicianship.
Their keenly understanding director, Mrs.
Mary Franklin, spent much time outside ot
class practicing with the girls to bring out ot
their singing the little subtle touches that make
perfection. From the ranks of the entire Glen
Club a double sextette was selected to enter
tain the theatre audiences during the intermise
sions of "lunior Miss," the all-school play.
As spring approached the group worked hard
preparing for the County Festival at University
City. When festival time rolled around the
girls really knew their notes. Iudges com-
mented more than favorably on their rendition
of "The Nightingale" and "Evening Hymn."
Enterprising in social as Well as musical af!
fairs, this group elected its candidate, Gloria
Keeney, queen of the Harvest Dance.

aidcu ine udic Ouerd fun Working to produce good music.
The harmony of these talented boys is wel-
comed Wherever they appear, and their di-
rector, Mr. Megahan, in his tirst year at Nor-
mandy, has their admiration both as a director
and a singer.
The Glee Club's first appearance was in con-
nection with the activity drive. Assisted by the
Norsemen, they started the campaign on its
way with such old favorites as "Stouthearted
Men" and "The Ranger Song."
Soon after the Music association's concert on
March 8th, our boys sang at University City
High School, upon an invitation to appear there
as guest artists.
Then the practice began for the County Fes-
tival, baritones and tenors alike joining voices
in earnest endeavor.
ln the spring at the annual concert the Nor-
mandy district tinally heard and applauded the
results of the long years practice.

Voice testing in the previous year yielded up
an abundant crop ot talent for the Ninth Grade
Mixed Chorus, an organization of eighty voices
conducted by Mrs. Frances Neii. Black skirts
Wntl, graclerd ing, oo
and trousers, white sweaters and shirts gave
the Chorus a sparkling, well-groomed appear-
ance wherever the group appeared.
These eighty ninth grade musicians proved
to have unbounded energy which overflowed
into varied activities throughout the year. Per-
haps the highlight oi their year was their Gay
Nineties Revue, tor which they wrote their own
comedy skits and melodrama and made their
own arrangements of the music oi that period.
The Mixed Chorus enhanced ninth grade
graduation ceremonies with "Now the Day ls
Qveru and "I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag."
Functioning as an organization of the school,
the Chorus nominated Deane Tinker for Val-
entine Queen and Anita Lawler tor St. Pats
Queen and was successful in electing both of
their candidates at the respective dances.
For talent and enthusiasm the Ninth Grade
Mixed Chorus deserves its class laurels.

One hundred young hopefuls with a Well
distributed range of voices constitute the Ninth
Grade Girls' Glee Club, an organization of re-
markable achievement. The girls are mem-
bers of Mrs. Nefl's ninth grade music classes
and did all their work during class time except
for the few extra volunteer practice sessions
that were necessary to provide the finishing
touches for public performance.
Wearirig pastel dresses set off by white col-
lars and cutis, the Glee Club made a charming
appearance when it sang before the public
lor the first time at the Spring Festival held in
University City in April. Selections were
"J-Xbido With Me" and "Let's Dance," the
latter a parody on chopsticks which brought
a gratifying response from the audience and
complimentary remarks from the judges. The
girls also did their bit to put over the ninth
grade Gay Nineties Revue by appearing in
ensemble as can-can girls and contributing
several soloists. They performed again at the
annual school Spring Concert before enthusi-
astic parents and music patrons of the Nor-
Four of the' girls 1li.w'11.v.v Hu' juh of plunniny fha

Mellow tones and hot licks soar out of the
band room every Monday and Thursday morn-
ings as the Norsemen, one of Normandy's most
popular instrumental groups, get together in
rehearsal. Giving students the music they
want in the popular field is the aim oi the
Versatility is one oi the more prominent
traits of this group. Their repertoire includes
hot swing, the blues, and sweet melodies. Most
ot the members also belong to the concert band
and orchestra, and several oi the musicians
play two or more instruments.
When they replaced the troublesome juke
box at the monthly Student Council dances the
Norsemen were an immediate success. To cli-
max their year they took part in a concert
given by the Normandy Music association, at
which their "Toy Trumpet" and "Minuet in
lazz" set the large audience to toe-tapping and
put them right in the groove.

iorms, the Senior Concert Band thrilled every
audience by their neat appearance. When
they began to play, the audience was awed
by the artistry and musicianship which they
All year they were kept busy with assem-
blies, Music Association programs, the County
Festival held at Webster Groves, the Spring
Concert given at Normandy and countless
other special programs.
They made an excellent showing at the
County Festival which was held at Webster
Groves High School instead oi University City
as in former years. A few ot their selections
were "Turandot Overture" by Vincent Lochner,
the Third Movement ot Beethoven's "Symphony
No. 6" and "Packs-ltanz" by Meyer.
In every organization, competition makes
students, parents, and teachers work a little
harder. As a result of these extra eitorts ap-
plied to the band, better players called "prin-
cipals" are chosen to occupy the iirst chairs
in the respective sections. individual tryouts
are held, after which all members choose the
one most skilled in sight reading, intonation,
and technical ability.
The standards oi the band are very high,
and members must show remarkable musical
talents. There were approximately twenty this
year who advanced irom the iunior groups
after hard work and practice gave them a def
gree oi proficiency required to keep pace with
the seniors. At the end oi the year letters were
awarded to the members who had received
the highest number oi points.
Mr. Edwin Gould, who has been with Nor-
mandy only a tew years, has done a remark-
able job ot conducting the band. Through his
patience and through the etiorts oi individual
band members Normandy has a band oi which
to be proud.

As a stepping stone for young musicians the
Iunior Band is an ideal organization. Here
players gain valuable training and experience
needed if they expect to play in the Senior

Band, as most of them aspire to do. Although
some of the band members have instrumental
training before they enter the lunior School,
the majority take up instruments for the first
time in their music classes.
The band rehearses in three separate soc-
tions of seventh graders, eighth graders, and
a combined ninth and tenth grade group.
These sections combine for public concerts.
The Iunior Band performed this year at the
annual Spring Concert at Normandy and tool:
part in the County Music Festival. They played
"Qld Glory March" by Robert Smith, "The
Black Prince Overture" and "The Prince and
lester Overture" by Otis Taylor.
These selections gave the band members
opportunities to display a fine technique ac-
quired in their months of practice. The Senior
Band will open its ranks to a number of in-
dividuals showing the requisite skill next fall.

become a member of the Senior Orchestra,
and many long hours of hard work and prac'
tice are required to achieve this goal. These
beginners learn the fundamentals of timing
and coordination and experience the pleasure
of working together to produce good music
under the ever-helping hand of Miss Selma
Three of the members, Bob Travers, Shirley
Bates, and Dorothy Taplin, were promoted to
Senior Orchestra in the first semester.
To keep their talents from being hidden, the
orchestra gives programs, through which play-
ers acquire poise in playing before an audi-
ence. Une of the programs given during the
year was a concert for the High School Moth-
ers' Club, at which the orchestra performed
Schuberts "Ballet" music and the delicate
'Cavotte and Musetteu by Bach. Each spring
the orchestra displays its musical talents in the
County Music Festival at Webster Groves and
again at the Annual Concert at Normandy.

Taking its place with the other vocal groups
of Normandy is the Iunior Mixed Chorus, newly
organized this year. Under the direction of Mrs.
Rosalind De Bolt, also new to Normandy, this
group is composed of two hundred and fifty
members from seventh and eighth grade
Marked by ambition and hard work, these
youthful singers have presented several fine
programs throughout the year. At Thanksgiv-
ing they sang a varied program that included
"Prayer" by Von Weber and "You're a Grand
Old Flag" by Cohan. At Christmas time a
selected group presented a cantata, "The Child
Iesusf' for the Parent-Teachers' Association.
The chorus' heavy schedule continued with
a concert in March in cooperation with Senior

These are comments of the corridor officers
as they patrol the halls of the Senior Building
during the intervals between classes when
hundreds of students are passing through the

seen by the good record of no scuffles and ac-

eleven members of the force mainly on the
basis of their general behavior, citizenship and
dependability. Although grades were not a
factor in the choice, most of the boys have
high scholastic averages.
Duties of these boys are to keep order, pre-

which everyone should observe.

a month in the afternoon tor a business
meeting, and once a month in the eve-
ning to increase their knowledge of history.
They plan a trip to the Art Museum once a
year, see historical movies and occasionally
have book reviews. Tentative plans for next
year include a dance and a party tor teach-
ers. The big event ot the year was a ban-
quet at Town Hall on December 5.

Beta Hi-Y'ers, not to be outdone by their tel-
low chapter, have triurnphantly ended their
second year ot organization at Normandy.
To repay the Alpha's lor the assistance that
was given them last year when they were
newly formed, the Beta's gave a Shack Party
for the Alphas and their dates. Iudging from
the bleary-eyed students the following Monday
morning, the Alphas were more than repaid.
Larry Bartram, Beta president, was elected
chairman of the State Hi-Y Council. Other Beta
officers are: vice-president, Bob Barrier, secref
tary, Bill Netzelag treasurer and program chairf
man, Lynton Bauer: social chairman, Walter
Holler: devotional chairman, lohn Youngp lac-
ulty adviser, Mr. Felix Seratini.
In Alpha-Beta basketball contests, the Bf
Boys shellacked the A's twice and lost once.
They also edged out the Men's Faculty, 20-19.
Working with its cohchapter, the Beta HifY
published the Buzz Book, Norrnandys pocket-
sized phone directory, and helped make the
"Meet Ball" one ot the outstanding dances of

Starting the year with the annual Get-
Acauainted dance, this year changed to "Meet
Ball," the Alphas co-sponsored with the Betas.
The dance was a tremendous success.
An air of excitement filled the school as the
new '46 Buzz Books finally came out after much
delay. The Alphas oversold the Betas.
Showing Christian kindness, the Alphas gave
food, money and a Christmas tree to a needy
family at Christmas time.
Highlighting the year of activities was the
Alpha basketball game. The cagers won first
place in the second annual Hi-Y basketballl

The Iunior and Senior Student Council ot
Normandy are representative groups elected
by the student body as part of the training
tor democracy so necessary tor all American
youth. The juniors are presided over by Presi-
dent Pat Erbe, Vice-President Bob Young, Sec-
retary Dorothy Hopkins, and Treasurer Peggy
Shenigman. The Council is sponsored by Miss
Members have been preparing a pamphlet
for issuance to all sixth grade pupils to ac-
quaint them with lite at Normandy. By study-
ing this pamphlet sixth graders coming to our
large campus will be better prepared to par-
ticipate in the many school activities.
This Christmas the members decorated a
large tree which you may have seen in the
hall of the Iunior School. They plan to make
this an annual event.

Mr. Walter Bergman devotedly guides the
seniors and is ably assisted by LaVerne Forys,
president: Al Michell, vicefpresidentg Mary Lee
Haupt, secretary, and lean Flori, treasurer.
The purpose of the dual Council is to main-
tain law and order at Ye Olde Normandy High.
When infractions of the rules occur, the stu-
dent is brought before the student court, which
has six members chosen by the Council, each
of whom serves five weeks. The vice-president
presides over the court every Tuesday and
Friday. Iudgements meted out have success-
fully prevented second offenses in most cases.
The Council performs many duties. It spon-
sors eight Student Council dances a year, for
which music is provided by the hep-cat Norse-
men. Four lyceum programs are presented
tor the student body. This year the lyceum as-
semblies have included a magician, a collector
of rare canes and an actress who specialized
in portrayals of well known fictional and true-
to-life characters. These assemblies are always
eagerly anticipated by the student body.
lt is the responsibility of both the Iunior and
and Senior Councils to maintain an efficiently
operated book room and lost and found depart-
ment. The huge Normandy campus daily pro-
duces a large number of stray objects, rang-
ing all the way from hair ribbons to well'
stocked wallets, all of which need matching
up with their owners. Members also police
the cafeteria during rush hours and conduct
cleaneup campaigns to keep the campus look-
ing trim and neat at all times.
These Councils typify the valuable experi-
ences in democratic living provided by Nor-

Outstanding members of the lunior and
Senior classes are the privileged few who are
eligible for the Senior Honor Society, the great-
est mark of achievement in high school.
.galil ml' era 26210
There are three divisions in which a student
obtains credit to be awarded membership in
the society. Scholarship requires a minimum
of 36 points. ln Citizenship 24 points are needed
and in Activity 20 points. The 5Ufpoint maxi'
mum in each field can be obtained if candif
dates are exceptionally wellfrounded persons.
One hundred points must be earned before
a student can become a candidate for the
"torch" pin. A final faculty examination checks
the candidates rank as to his personality and
character. After passing this last milestone, the
lucky few' are officially taken into the society
at the initiation in May.
Those seniors who made the requirements
in the eleventh grade are Qrville Chalfant,

Sept. 4th Their eyes bright with the prospect
of a new year and new courses, Normans
turned their noses hill-topward once again only
to find themselves directed to lands beyond,
into the "valley." Their expectancy was satis-
fied: newness was theirs in the form of spacious
classrooms and slight but significant vocabu-
lary increase -"Pyrobar!"
Sept. 5th -Enrollees resignedly reached out
for their new textbooks, obligingly signed
names to roll sheets, carefully averted glances
from sunshine pouring in windows, excitedly
boarded buses headed for home at 3:l5.
Sept. Zlst- The activity assembly laid em-
phasis on hilarity, with jokes and capers by
the three "funnies," lack King, Iohn Altheide,
and Walter Haller. Singing by the Girls' Glee
Hotdogs mingled along with lusty cheers
as player after player entered the game.
Hooters started the long ride back, filled
with high hopes as to success of forth-
coming football season.
Sept. 29th---Soft music, dim lights and
a friendly atmosphere made the Hi-Y
Meet Ball a rollicking success. Gaiety
reached its zenith as Bud Garrison romped
off with the crown and scepter to become
Iitterbug King. The proverbial "dainty
dish" was set before His Highness, a most
regal serving of spaghetti and meat balls.
Garbed in fresh white surplices, the Junior Mixed

Slogan for the evening was "Howdy" and no
standoffishness was allowed.
Oct. 2nd---"We did it! Completed! Eight full
pages, tool" These frenzied shouts swelled the
Courier room. Excitement over the first publi-
cation was promptly eclipsed by preparations
for the second. That's Courier. Students eag-
erly devoured the contents of the first issue to
learn the latest school news.

Oct. 6th -Hurrah! A throng of cheering stu-

Oct. 24th---7:30 on this snappy autumn day
saw drowsy Seniors aboard buses Old New
Salem bound. Although seat mates were bare-
ly perceivable in the dim light, the trip was a
part of a plan to acquaint Seniors with each
other. As eyes began to open, hungry mooch-
ers sniffed lunches. Thoroughly mixed and
properly edified by the sights of New Salem,
the group returned home in high spirits.

all out for this holiday in a series of parties
complete to the last eerie detail.

mirth found its way in through the enactment

The spring season, flowers, music and an
admiring Court combined to grace the crown-
ing of lovely Moira Guthrie as l946 Saga
Queen of Love and Beauty during the May
Fete ceremonies on May l6th and l7th. Esf
corted by Al Michell, voted most popular boy
in the Senior class, the new Queen took her
place on the throne as Audrey Zeller, retiring
Queen, stepped down to make way for her.
Directly in back of the throne the Eiffel Tower
rose toward the ceiling and to either side chic
French shops gave evidence that this was not
the Normandy High School gymnasium, this
was Gay Paree. Immediately following the
Coronation the Queen and her court were spec
tators at a performance of Gershwirrs "Ameri-
can in Paris" ballet. To the bustle of street
noises and cacaphony of taxi horns expertly

off Normandy's repeated drives.
Normandy 34, Maplewood 12
As a tune-up for their district clash with the
Rough Riders of Roosevelt, the Normandy grid-
ders trounced the Blue Devils of Maplewood,
34 to 12. In the first quarter Bergmeier broke
lose for runs of 45 and 30 yards, yielding two
tallies. He also converted both extra points,
turning out a score of 14 to 0. In the second
quarter Swyers racked up another seven points
with Bergmeier's aid in converting. The half
ended with the score 21 to 0. The Vikings kept
their Steamroller going in the third quarter and
Garrison crashed over from the 5-yard line.
Bergmeier's kick was blocked. The Blue Dev-
ils kept driving and rang up one touchdown
in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter Swy-
ers ran over Maplewood for another score.,
Bergmeier's kick was good with the score now
at 34 to 6. With Normandy's second and third
strings in, the Blue Devils shoved over another
score, but the game ended in a 34 to 12 tri-
umph for the Vikings.
Normandy 6. Roosevelt 13
In the game of the year, Normandy was
chosen to represent the county in a contest
with Roosevelt's "city champs" for all-district
honors. With pre-game ceremonies taken care
of, the battle got under way and Normandy
took to the offensive quickly, driving to their
own 40-yard line before being stopped. Roose-
velt took over but the Normandy line met the
test, holding for downs, and the Vikings got
the ball. The first quarter went much in this
fashion but in the second quarter the Roose-
velters drove over for the initial score and then
Wayne Fleddermann passed for another Roose-
velt score, the extra point not being made.
The fans got their thrill of the game as Berg-
meier ran the kickoff 85 yards for Normandy's
score. Bergmeier's kick was wide, and the
score was 13 to 6. In the fourth quarter "Pinky"
Ries recovered a Roosevelt fumble and ran it
over for a touchdown, but Viking ioy was short-
liver, for the ball had touched the ground, nul-
lifying the gain. Normandy's hopes faded
when Roosevelt took possession of the ball
with a minute left to play.

the Riegertmen easily defeated the Blue Devils
of Maplewood for the second time in the sea-
son. Inspired by the taste of victory, the Red
and Green clawed Soldan's Tigers, only to
fall at the hands of the Roosevelt quintet.
Renewing their efforts after the Christmas
season, the Vikings rolled over all opposition
to rack up nine victories against only one de-
feat, which came at the hands of Beaumont's
Blue Iackets. In the final scheduled game of
the year the Vikings defeated Kirkwood to cap-
ture Suburban League honors.
The Vikings swamped Berkeley and Fer-
guson in the opening games of the Normandy
Sub Regional, but Fairview gave Normandy
stiffer competition, the Vikings finally pulling
ahead in the fourth quarter to win. The "old
iinx," Beaumont, turned up again to end Nor-
mandy's winning streak.
Moving on to the regionals, the Red and
Green, led by "Pinky" Ries, defeated a highly
touted Cleveland five, but in the next game St.
Louis University High proved to be too much
for the Vikings. In the final playoff with Roose-
velt for third place, the Vikings lost a tough
one, 33 to 37.
The team was sparked by All-District Doug
Finley, who scored 290 points, and "Pinky"
Ries, who scored 241. Next year's squad should
be of championship caliber, since all but one
of the starting five are returning.
