On the calendar the year was only a set of numerals-l946-47.
To us it was ten months of work and play, of doing and learning,
of failing sometimes but usually succeeding. As the seasons
changed the campus, experience changed us.
We were an active lot. All year long we threw every trick in
the book at our friends and teachers, and on Class Day we finally
threw the book, feeling sure we knew almost everything that was
in it. It was a memorable year. These pages record it all for us.
Many of the snapshots in our memories we have caught on
film for these pages. Others we have recorded in writing. Agree
with us-1946-417 was a memorable year.
Ah ha, me proucl beauty! Boarcl the S. S. Nor-
mandy leaving at l5:l5 hours. Check your school

Hi-Y opened the social season with the
Get-Acquainted Dance. Following this
grand opening came the Harvest Dance.
Highlight of the evening was the corona-

Meanwhile a big assembly had launched
the Activity Drive, and once again we went
over the top for a half-day holiday.
Class spirit really came to the front
during Senior elections. Strange sights
seen around here during campaign week
included a speech from the old senior bal-
cony, parades between classes and a street
dance. Lyrics of uBottle Burper is the

Then the presentation of the operetta,
'6Calloping Ghostf' starring ,lim McGee,
Lois Stegg, Don Sitter, and Sally Dillard,
brought the ,lunior high school into the
limelight on November 14. To finish the
season off just right the all-school play,
H0ut of the Frying Pan," was produced as
scheduled by Miss Grammaticoff. A ro-
mantic comedy, it was rated one of the
best ever produced for Normandy. With

gowns received their diplomas on June

now, but next year they'll ring out again
with the new classes and the new faces.

Gaily colored aprons, skirts, and blouses blos-

Vocational training is offered to the boys in the

turns into dexterity.

These students are exploring. The eighth grade
curriculum contains several of these exploratory
courses designed to give pupils a taste of what
lies ahead in Senior High. ln choosing electives for
the first time, eighth graders become more in-
dividualistic and begin to develop their own special
talents in home economics, woodworking, speech,
language, and other departments. These trail blaz-

S0 that no one will fail to have his name on the
graduation list, eighth graders compile their credits
before they enter the ninth grade. They study a
list which shows them which subjects are required
and the possible electives. By this system, they
will know if they are short credits which may be
made up before the time of graduation. Along
with this list pupils receive suggestions as to studies

nward to Senior High
Leaving their junior building comrades,
ninth graders grow up through their summer
vacation and come over on the senior high
side of the campus, even though ninth grade
graduation won't be until June.
While they are not able to be in the Or-
chesis, they try out for dance classes and train
for the day that they may get into this select
group. The ninth grade is also active in
sports. Going all out to try for hockey, bas-
ketball, volleyball and baseball, ninth grad-
ers give real competition to upper classmen.

make their mark in sports were Shirley Hibbs
and Dorothy Meek. Competing for the basketball
and volleyball championship, ninth grade home-
room teams organized and played other homerooms
of their grade.
Taking a place in the music theater, the ninth
grade boasts both a Clee Club and Mixed Chorus.
Chorus members give no programs during their
first year, spend time developing voices for future
participation in advanced singing groups.
Along with many other thrills of entering the
senior school, ninth graders can greatly widen
their curriculum. If they plan to enter college,
they choose an academic course, aided by ninth
grade sponsors and other teachers, who advise them
as to subjects that will be of most use later.
New to them this year, the study of citizenship
helps ninth graders to become better citizens of
the school and of the community. Students learn
much of world affairs, as most classes study a
weekly paper giving news of countries all over
the world. One project of this year's citizenship
class was a community survey in which important
historical points were uncovered.
Other fields open to ninth graders are English,
language, music, history and science. To extend
their linguistic accomplishments, many students he-
gin a foreign language in ninth grade, even though
they do not plan to enter college, and may choose
among Spanish, French, Latin and German.
As for activities, the ninth grade is never left out.

Looking forward to their title as seniors,
the class of '47 has rigidly observed its class
motto, G'Honor Before Glory.'7 Yet being
juniors, many goals remain unreached: Will
I make Honor Society? Will I make Quill
and Scroll? Many problems remain un-
answered: VVhere will I rank in my class?
What will I do after graduation? Do I have
enough knowledge to hold a job? Mr. Sera-
fini, as chairman of the Junior Sponsors
along with the eleventh grade homeroom
teachers, has given his valuable time to help
answer these questions. Next year juniors

With the donning of caps
and gowns, a sentimental
streak sneaks into every
senior. Reminiscing over
their years of fun and fancy
some can even remember
their first day of seventh
grade. Feeling older and
more experienced? they re-
call with amusement their
first frightened impression
of N0rmandy's huge cam-
pus and throngs of strange
Foretasting what college will be l'k
September and school wel-
comed this new crop of
seniors and found old pals
mingling with new ones.
The first day of school per-
haps confused the neophytes
but proved just "old stuff"
to the seniors. Senior Eng-
lish started right in and it
wasnit long before Macbeth
was recited in every cor-
' i 'e, Seniors 'ransack the library to ob-
tain materials for their English research papers. Favorite subject-love
affairs of great poets.
One of Bob Elliotfs 1'
emarks about the Boxers amuses members of M
Bergmaimls' history class as they listen to a 't . ' ' ' '
repo? on the Boarei Rebellzon
Typical senior spirit was renewed when
seniors received their class rings and pins.
True, many thinking of graduation would
have loved to be in the shoes of any junior
high guy or gal but having no Aladdin
lamps around they looked anxiously ahead
Finals were really a relief to the big
whigs of Normandy. ulust think," re-
marked many With fiendish grins on their
faces, Uwe don't have any more finals and
you dof' Juniors had a comeback-ulust
wait 'till next year," but the 7th graders
had nothing but five glorious years ahead
Well, another June, another graduationg
but this year7s class has a lot to look for-
ward to, as well as six years of pleasant
memories to look back on.
Ten most popular Seniors, from whom the 19.57 Saga
Queen ancl most popular Senior boy were chosen. Stancl-
ing, Ann Quermann, Doug Finley, Marilyn Held, Bob Ries,

Lad aseys at Bat
Ending the sports season is softball, vigorously
played by a large and enthusiastic group of girls.
Lady Caseys at bat, they call themselves, seeing no
reason why AmeriCa's favorite sport should be a
purely masculine prerogative.
This year the short season was curtailed even
more by persistent rain that kept the girls indoors.
When weather permitted, however, they were out
on the field knocking base hits, trying for hot
grounders and improving their playing skill under
the tutelage of Miss Welsch and Mrs. Dunbar,

School Citizens Exercise
Welcoming lyceum speaker in behalf of the assembly
is Student Council President Joe Moore.
Exercising the principles of a democratic govern-
ment in their school society, Senior Student Coun-
cil members meet on Tuesday morning under the
sponsorship of Mr. Walter Bergmann. The repre-
sentatives are elected by the student body at the
beginning of each school year.
Did you ever wonder who helps those students
who stray from the beaten path? Composed of
seven members who are selected from Student Coun-
cil, the Student Court straightens out students, dif-
ficulties as cases are presented to it for considera-
tion. Second offenders are few.
Something new has been added! For the first
time the students can listen to their favorite rec-
ords while eating lunch. The juke box, owned and
operated by both Junior and Senior Councils, has
been placed in the cafeteria for all to enjoy.
Mr. Bergmann commented that the officers are
capable leaders-Joe Moore, presidentg Pat Price,
vice-presidentg Elaine Forys, secretaryg and Joe

Mates keep the boats on their steady course as
the ,lunior Student Council plots the map of activi-
ties for the Junior High School. The course for
this year led students to be more conscious of
their courtesy in manners and speech through a
courtesy campaign in which a boy and girl in
each homeroom were recognized as the most cour-
teous people for each grade period.
lf you happened to journey to a lyceum or Stu-
dent Council dance you would find its leaders,
Molly Price, president, Bob Donovan, vice presi-
dent, Ed Ewald, secretary, and Vern Smith, treas-
urer, making arrangements to help sell cokes, take
tickets or watch the juke box. The Council also
sponsored a hobby show for junior students, sec-
ond semester. Supervised by Miss Louise Schmuck-
er, the members met every other Wednesday to
check campus and cafeteria guards, help return
the lost and found articles in the junior building,
and discuss plans for the coming week.

Bearers of the Torch
Raised requirements this year made earning the
Htorchn pin of the Senior Honor Society a more
difficult task and a greater honor than in years
before. By popular Society student vote the mini-
mum of 36 points was raised to 40 in the scholar-
ship categoryg leaving 24 for citizenship, 20 for
activity, and the remaining 16 to be garnered from
a miscellaneous group of activities.
After final faculty judgment on candidates' fit-
ness, the privileged few were initiated in May.
This year's officers were: Lois Diesel, presidentg
Betty Zumbehl, vice presidentg Marilyn Heid, sec-
retaryg Betty DeBruner, treasurer.

After the editors selected Ol' Man River to roll

engravers were consulted, pictures were scheduled,
and work progressed through the year to the frenzy

Reminiscing on the more happy and joyful side

Slow and Fast! Soft and Loud! As you like it,
the Girls, Glee Club can sing it. Directed by Mrs.
Mary Franklin, the girls participated in concerts,
assemblies, the music festival, and sang Christmas
music at the Yuletide season.
Short or tall, glee-clubbers looked very attrac-

These girls have been praised not only for their
great singing, but also for phrasing, clear tones,
and the willingness to practice before school, or
any time they are called for a practice.
a'Smiling Dawn," 'Tale Moon," and '4Down in
the Floweiy Valen are favorite numbers.

kicking the extra point, the 7-point margin re-
mained until the end of the game.
NORMANDY 26--KIRKWOOD 0
Winning the toss, the Vikings chose to kick with
the wind against their backs. The Kirkwood lads
lost the ball after a futile attempt to 'ibuckn the
Viking forward line. Plunging over his own left
guard for a gain of 6 yards, 5'Pinky', Ries shifted
the Viking juggernaut into high gear.
However, the attack was stopped 10 yards short
of pay dirt, in the form of a fumble, and the Kirk-
wood boys punted themselves out of danger.
The early minutes of the second quarter found
the Vikings again knocking at the door of glory.
Pulverizing fullback "Pinkya' Ries forged his way
through the opposition to score, but Dave Klas-
ing,s attempted conversion failed.
Knute Lorenz's intercepted pass, and a fine run
by Dick Bokamper set the stage for the second Vik-
ing tally. ln the closing seconds of the first half,
Ries was unable to spot his pass receiver and
elected to skirt his right for his sixth touchdown of
the season, this time Klasing made good.
Viking regulars did not play long into the 3rd
quarter before they were replaced by the strong re-
serves. Running, blocking, and fighting hard, they
soon found the Pioneers' weak spots. Halfback ,lim
Russell scampered 20 yards for the third touch-
down. Late in the same period, scatback Bernie
Waters, behind beautiful blocking, crossed the end
stripe, scoring the final tally.
NORMANDY 20-WEBSTER 0
Determination to upset the Vikings was the driv-
ing force behind Webster, and it wasn't until late
in the second quarter that the Red and Green could
shake it off.
The Statesmen ruled the first quarter and their
five-man line baffled the Vikings throughout the
first half, only their own fumble stopped a pos-
sible touchdown drive.

Bob Ries, with little blocking, pushed over a
tally before the half ended, but Klasing7s kick
A sparkling contrast to the first half started the
second, both offense and defense shone as '4Pinky,'
tucked 440 yards behind him, scoring Websteras
second headache. Dave Klasing followed with a
The pigskin then sprouted red and green wings
and the aerial attack brought the Vikings to the
opponents' goal line once more. Klasing chucked
it over and booted an additional marker, polishing
off a brilliant 20-0 score.
NORMANDY 13-McBR1DE 7
Wild, surging fans jam-packed the Vikings' field
to witness this tense, action-filled fracas.
Underdogged McBride, out to revenge their 14-0
setback of last year, bounced back after a string
of four defeats to give the Red and Green a scare.
Bob Ries chalked up the lone first-half tally,
plowing six yards off his left tackle in the first
period. Klasing's extra point kick was blocked.
ln the middle of the third period, George House-
man, Colonnader halfback, crashed his own right
tackle and raced 50 yards to score. Their extra
point placement edged a one-point margin over the
local boys which made them the first team to lead
and score against the Vikings,
Still fighting for an unblemished record, the Red
and Green gridmen turned the tables late in the
fourth quarter with a spectacular play. End Doug
Finley pulled out of his position, took the ball from
quarterback Denny Gallagher, and flung a high,
wobbly pass into the eager arms of Bob Ries, who
scampered ten yards to turn a defeat into a 13-7

State tournament. A scrappy Versailles team had
different ideas, and in the semi-finals turned back
the Red and Green by two points. The Vikings re-
fused to give up and captured the third place title.

Always a big part of the cage season, the annual
Christmas tournament saw the Viking quintet con-
quer a second place in the Red division, losing to
Beaumont in the New Yearas Eve finals.
Another tournament disappointment was a trip
to the Springfield tourney, where the Red and
Green were stopped by School of the Osage in the
Individual honors were plentiful. Doug Finley,
leading Viking scorer with a season total of 413
points, won a forward spot in the all-state team
and repeated his last year's all-district rating. Cap-

on the all-state and all-district second teams, while
Dale "Ox', Portmann received an honorable men-
tion in the all-district selections.

out-score but not out-play the Vikings, who suf-
fered their first setback.
Taking a long kickoff deep in their territory,
the favored Red and Green gradually moved the
pigskin to the Indians' 20-yard line, but a costly
fumble blacked out the Vikings' first quarter attack.
ln the second period a dark cloud settled over
the local boys. Dick Cone, U. City scatback, re-
ceived a Klasing punt and out loose with a paralyz-
ing 80-yard run-back to scoreg the perfect con-
version set the Vikings back 7 points.
Red and Green staged a comeback in the third
quarter but could only squeeze out 6 markers.
Klasing tossed a high looper to Clark, who strided
20 yards for a TD. A bad extra point kick eventu-
ally spelled defeat for the Vikings.
In the last seven minutes, Normandy's eleven
rose again, Don Tracy being the main cog in bring-
ing the ball to the Indians' 2-yard line. With 30
seconds left a penalty for too many time-outs re-
treated the pigskin to the 7-yard line. U. City then
intercepted Ries, pass and the game ended smiling
at the Black and Gold, 7-6.
NORMANDY 18-RITENOUR 9
Continuing their winning streak where they left
off before the U. City game, the Vikings trimmed
Red and Green materialized late in the first
quarter on a long pass from Klasing to Finley, but
with pulverizing plunges by their star fullback,
Gerald Nordman, the Huskies quickly changed the
score to 6-6.
Costly fumbles quelled the Vikings, attack and
the Orange and Black spurted ahead with a beauti-
ful 30-yard field goal.
In the tense, fading minutes of the first half
Dave Klasing threw four perfect passes, the last
into the arms of Bill Clark, sending the Red and
Green ahead, 12-9.

As the Shipherdmen were turned away from a
possible score by a 15-yard holding penalty and

even more dreary for the local boys.
Despite rain, the second half was filled with
scoring. The Blue Devils tallied first but missed
the extra point. Then the Vikings cut loose: Bill
Clark scored for the Red and Green on a pass in
the third period and Don Tracy followed with two
more TD,s in the fourth quarter. Bob '6Pinky,' Ries
