FAS LTY D CLASSES
The spotlight falls on hooks, pencils, and rulers
--symbols of classes and tools of our trade. The
classes were the haclihone of our future and com-
posites ol various interests, talents, and abilities.
This year, as the students entered the uhoary
wallsf' some laces were new and others were old
time favorites. The administrators and faculty were
there to aid them in any way that they could. ln the
classroom the Viking Spirit was renewedha spirit
of adventure and courage, of willingness to explore
the unknown. Wlemories were stored in these years
that shall serve as joys and hopes in the future.
Certainly a varied curriculum was offered to all
Normandy students. To some the commercial studies
seemed the most important, while to others academic
and scientific courses were awaiting to prepare them
for the future. No matter what their interests were,
Normandy and her faculty were there to give them
the hest possilmle guidance in their chosen field.

These elements consisted of: an active, alert

munity and the school staff.
Assistant Superintendent of Schools
Assisting in the execution of this far-reaching
philosophy was the Principal of Normandy High
School, Mr. R. D. Shouseg the Assistant Principal,
Mr. C. E. Potterg and the Guidance Director of
Normandy, lVlr. Walter C. Bergmann. They won the
admiration and esteem of the faculty and the student
body by their untiring efforts toward the betterment
of Normandy. ln all phases of the school program
they lent a wise, helping hand.
ls Normandy meeting the needs of youth? This
important question required an honest answer. ln
an attempt to determine how well the courses and
practices of the school were producing the desired
results, Evaluation Committees of parents, pupils,
and teachers were formed. This was in answer to a
request made by the North Central Association of
Secondary Schools and Colleges of which Normandy
was a member. Many other organizations worked on
this problem of adapting the school program to the
actual needs of youth. There was continued stress on
the importance of education for all American youth.
A new cog in the wheel of progress was the student-
teacher planning council. This was the first time com-
mittees of both students and teachers had been formed
Principal, Normandy High School
where both were free to enter into the discussion.
This planning council arranged Town Hall assemblies
wherein the entire student body could discuss a prob-
lem or idea openly.

The administrators of the ,lunior High School also
added their support and talents to the carrying out
of the philosophy of the Normandy schools. Mr. Ji. R.
Gunnell, Principal of Normandy Junior High, and
Mr. C. J. McCartney, Assistant Principal, worked
wholeheartedly for the success of this endeavor. Thus
the basic principles for the Normandy Consolidated
School District-grades six to twelve-were evolved.
Having completed another successful year at
Normandy, these competent leaders looked forward
to continually widening opportunities in the new
junior building. With the new and modern equip-
ment available, a more interesting and satisfactory
course of study could be arranged and employed in
the classrooms. These leaders were desirous of the
completion of the new Junior High School building
by September, 1950. All students have expressed the
hope that this wish might be fulfilled by the time the
next semester has begun.
The goals that were aimed for by these admin-
istrators included: an adjustment period for further

education and adult lifeg an exploration in the field
of curricular and extracurricular subject matter, a
study of each pupil's mental and social capabilities,
provision for opportunities to develop a widening
range of cultural, racial, civic, and recreational inter-
estsg and the guidance of pupils in discovering their
specialized interests, aptitudes, and abilities as a basis
for decisions regarding future educational oppor-
tunities and vocational decisions. judged by these
goals, the students of the Junior High School seemed
well on their way to a bright and happy future. They,
too, had been prepared to take their place as useful
citizens in our community, state and nation.
Mr. Gunnell and Mr. McCartney, working cooper-
atively with the faculty of the Junior High School,
gave the students inspiration and guidance in their
quests for knowledge. They were always ready and
willing to give suggestions on any problem brought
to them by the students. With tact and understanding
these administrators promoted good will throughout
the school. To their untiring efforts we shall always

The duties of the Board of Education were numer-
ous and varied, and the problems they faced required
a great deal of their time and attention. The respon-
sibility of solving these questions was safe in the
hands of this well-qualified Board. ln addition to
these problems there were many other activities
which claimed their consideration.
The Board has for many years Worked to make
Normandy one ol the most advanced and progressive
school systems in the country. The Way in which
school activities were guided and the manner in
which scholastic standards were supervised was
determined with this aim ill mind.
The Board of Education was responsible for mak-
ing the general policy for the entire Normandy Dis-
trict. This year a new philosophy was set for covering
the goals of the educational program and the ele-
ments needed to attain these goals. This philosophy
was designed for the betterment of public relations,
for the community is a necessary factor in the success
of any school.
They were constantly drafting plans for the devel-
opment and improvement of the schools in the Nor-
mandy District. The completion of the new Junior
building made a dream a reality. With the added
space and modern conveniences, this structure will
give the senior student body more classrooms.
These supervisors worked constantly and consci-
entiously for the betterment of facilities at the high
school. Their principal objective was adequately to
house all children in safe, comfortable, and educa-
tionally qualihed structures. The effects of long-
range planning were seen in the high school and also
at the various elementary schools, where many addi-
tions and improvements had been made. Eventually
this long-range planning would give to Normandy
a fine system of school plants, enabling it to offer a
more complete program of education to its students.

Behind the scenes yet not out of sight were the
many people who kept the school running smoothly.
Through the year they have assisted in the numerous
school activities. Never failing in their many duties,
their steady and dependable Work certainly deserved
a vote of thanks. To these people in appreciation of
their untiring efforts we dedicated this page.
The Normandy transportation system was respon-
sible for providing safe transportation for the stu-
dents. Under the direction of Mr. Lester C. Winder,
adjustments were made to facilitate the handling of
extra bus routes after the burning of the senior build-
ing necessitated a change in schedules. This fully or-
ganized system accommodated a large majority of
students in a remarkably short period of time. It
operated so economically that not a penny of taxes
was required. The bus system has grown steadily
through the years. Efficient mechanics kept the buses
in excellent operation throughout the school months
by insuring the safety of each vehicle. This efficiency
formed the background for safe transportation for
the students of Normandy High School.
The operation of a cafeteria is not an easy task, yet
daily the cooks in our cafeteria served varied and
nourishing meals for the students and teachers of
Normandy. Though the number of lunch periods
was reduced by the schedules put into effect this year,
there were still a horde of hungry people descending
on the cafeteria at noon each day. The cafeteria was
always prepared to offer a well-balanced menu to
those who daily relied on it for their noonday meal.
The custodians under the supervision of Ray E.
Talley were responsible for the maintenance of the
school buildings and grounds. School dances, plays,
and other evening activities were run smoothly with
the aid of these men. Through the Winter months they
kept classrooms warm and walks and driveways safe
from ice. Taking great pains, they succeeded in main-
taining a neat, well-trimmed campus and clean, com-

Be inners Learn
Amid the typical hustle and bustle of the confused halls
and classes at the beginning of the school year, most of the
Seventh Graders wore a frightened and bewildered expres-
sion that immediately identified them as newcomers to
Normandy. On the first day their looks asked many ques-
tions of what the future might hold for this new class. Old
Normandy, however, was not afraid or worried about her
welcome newcomers, for she had seen many students pass
through her halls and out into a bright and promising
future. After a time the strange looks disappeared along
Letls get acquainted with the Seventh Graders of Nor-
As newcomers to Normandy, the Seventh Graders were
rather slow in adapting themselves to the rules and regu-
lations of the Junior High School, but eventually they
gained self-confidence and assurance. ln a very short time
they were as busy with their clubs and classes as anyone
else on the campus. They formed new friendships which
would last for seven eventful years at Normandy High
to Know ormand
Now shall we follow a few of our seventh grade students
to see how they spent a part of their day? We shall start
with an English class, always a source of joy or sorrow,
which capable teachers made more interesting. Verbs and
nouns were finally untangled from sentences as teachers
and students smiled in relief. English construction and
word usage were learned for future use in school and busi-
ness. They also enjoyed prose and poetry, which gave them
a much needed background in literature. Mathematics held
future businessnietfs attention as commissions, budgets,
and interest were the main topics under discussion. Now,
for the first time in their lives, the girls learned something
of how to make and design their own clothes. While the girls
snipped and ripped in sewing classes, the boys banged and
sawed in the shop. Woodsvorking and sheet metal helped
the youthful boys to become skillful as they outgrew their
clumsiness. Practical arts such as these prepared them to
be the future honieniakers of Normandy. Eine arts were also
an important part of the seventh grade curriculum. Even
though they were attended only twice a week, art and music
classes proved to be enjoyable.

Sports played an important part in the life of this
vigorous class. Coach McCartney found future grid
stars as well as up and coming basketball and base-
ball players arnong the boys. Their prowess on the
track was equally outstanding. The girls were not
outdone by the boys, however. Under the able super-
vision of Miss Norma Kissner, the Junior G. A. A.
began developing many line girl athletes. Although
most of the girls had never played hockey before.
they produced a good team ere the season was over.
Evidence of outstanding scholarship and citi-
as the weeks flew by.
This proved them to be worthy for membership
of Junior Honor Society next year. The Student

Having finished their initial year of Junior
High School these eighth graders with a year of
experience behind them began to establish
themselves on Normandyis campus. They re-
newed old friendships with warm HHi's" and
Vacation chatter. The new eighth grade students
returned to school in September with confi-
dence, they planned to work for higher achieve-
ments in their new year. They moved through
the halls with assurance as they found their new
classrooms and teachers. Within a few days,
after schedules had been rearranged, everything
and everyone was moving along smoothly. This
was their year to reign supreme in the Junior
School. The coming school year offered new
scholastic possibilities to outstanding students.
To prepare for Senior High School these vet-
erans took courses that would help them to
build a firm foundation for all required sub-
jects. For the first time in their school lives they
were offered electives, and a proof of growing-
up was the ability with which these eighth
graders selected their first elective. Each stu-
dent was allowed to choose such subjects as:
Junior Business, Junior Speech, history, or

were interested in perfecting their speaking tech-

those who wished to learn the proper use of money,

learned new techniques.

The required subjects: English, science, social, and
mathematics were still maintained in their half-day sched-
ule, which left more time for social life and school activities.
Turning out for all sport events, dances, and other activities,
the eighth grade had a very interesting year of school. The
Junior Honor Society, composed of outstanding students,
made up the core of the Junior High School. Directed by
Mrs. Cook and Mr. McCartney, corridor oflicers and Junior
Student Council members patrolled the halls and campus.
These students had to maintain at least a B- average to
keep their positions. Also awarded to students of merit were
positions on the Junior Student Council, which served as
the governing board of the Junior High School, whose
ofhcers were Sandy Dobbin, Don Pfanstiel, Clifford Kam-
mermeyer, and ,lane Dochroeden, president, vice-president,
secretary, and treasurer respectively. Two students were
elected to represent each homeroom. Their help was much
appreciated by the members of the Senior Student Council
at the Student Council Dances. With their expert manage-
ment this yearls Junior Student Council was extremely
Activities Take Time
The time after school was devoted to their many extra-
curricular activities. Social activities made up a large por-
tion of an eighth gra-:ler's time. The school plays inspired
many with the desire to be great actors and to have the
lead in the school play. Beginning to overcome their shy-
ness, the eighth graders attended many dances, which were
places to make new friends in the higher classes and to mix
with other boys and girls. Cliff Kammermeyer was chosen
to be a candidate for Liil Abner. Games gave a chance to
scream away all their troubles rooting for the Vikings in
every season and in many sports. The eighth grade boys
who were very enthusiastic about the sports activities
proved to be good athletes. Coach McCartney was proud
to say that his boys' basketball team would be fine future
varsity players in a few years. For the first time class
ofiicers were chosen as worthy leaders for the eighth grade
class of Normandy.
At the end of thc year, a pair were chosen, as the most
popular boy and girl in the eighth grade class, to attend
the Queen of the Saga Court of Love and Beauty.
S0 their second year ended and another summer began.

Freshman Begin, Anew
The Ninth Graders looked forward to the first day
of school with excited anticipation. Eagerly advanc-
ing to their freshman year, they found it provided
many new, interesting activities and subjects. When
that day Hnally came, they realized that they were on
their way to becoming adults. Cheery hellos were
heard as the Freshmen students entered the halls of
Normandy. This year was their first in senior high
so they settled down to a year of Work and fun. One
thrill of entering the senior high school was the
choosing of courses. Mrs. Mayhall and Mr. Blitz
carefully guided them in their selections.
Courses are Varied
Helping them to become better citizens of the
school and of the community was the aim of the
required Ninth Grade citizenship classes. There they
learned the working parts of our government and the
functions and responsibilities of each individual
citizen. For the first time these students were able to
take a foreign language. Among those to select from
were Spanish, German, Latin, and French. To con-
verse in a strange tongue proved both interesting and
entertaining. Many interesting experiments and note-
books on the theories and laws of science were learned
in General Science, an elective for Ninth Grade only.
With bewildered and confused looks, the Algebra stu-
dents roamed the halls lnurinuring strange phrases,
but the confusion didnlt last long, for they soon be-
came mathematical wizards. With the commencement
of their new courses, the freshmen, however, con-
tinued their studies in English. Here they put into
practice the essential uses of grammar and pronun-

In the department of athletics, the boys enthusi-
astically participated in football, basketball, and
track. The girls spent their extracurricular moments
in hockey, basketball, volleyball, and softball. Keep-
ing always in front of them the goal of varsity sports
and the gaining of the coveted letters, the Freshman
Class put forth all of their effort.
Quite a few of the students made Honor Society
in the Ninth Grade. Each homeroom had one repre-
sentative in the Student Council. Determining such
questions as class colors and the class motto were
the capable ofiicers, who guided their class through
their first year in high school. Cracing the Saga
Court of Love and Beauty were the most popular boy
and girl elected from the Ninth Grade.
All of these ambitious students looked forward to
the final achievement of three years' hard work.
Ciutching their diplomas fondly, each one thought
of the day not too far off when he would receive an-
other diploma and leave Normandy to face the world.

Returning to Normandy, still remembering the
wonderful touch of a ninth grade diploma. the Tenth
Graders set forth on their first year in senior high.
I11 September the tenth graders looked forward to
their second year in the senior high with eagerness.
As the year opened, the sophomores could easily be
picked out of the milling crowd. Their new standing
as senior school students set them apart as far as
they were concerned. They struck a Hdevil-may-carel'
attitude to prove they knew as much about upper
classes as anyone. Thus the Sophomores returned
lo the Normandy campus.

Science is Studied
To the sophomores lhe routine was all old stuff.
Although they were the youngest class in the senior
high, they were well adjusted to the school's way of
life. Meeting old friends and new teachers was .still
interesting to these tenth graders. They found the
classes a bit different and more variedg the activities,
many and interesting.
Biology, world history, and other sophomore suh-
jects oiiered many opportunities to discover new in-
formation. The alin
ects in World histor
guages offered different twists to many tenth grade
tongues. Despite the hard work this class came forth
with high honors and proved that th f l
ientary tracts of frogs and proj-
y were topics of discussion. Lan-
ey cou d master
As they progressed into the school year, they began
to realize all that being a senior school student
signified. Such activities as: after school sports, lan-
guage club, all school play, Hi-Y, and Tri-Y Cle-
manded their time.
Many activities came into their own. Boys inter-
ested in football tried for a place on the HB" teamg
while sports-minded girls played hockey. Boys and
girls interested in being members of the swimming
teams got a chance to show what they could do in
the new Normandy pool.
Social events, too, claimed some of their time.
Senior school dances meant more when they were
more a part of them. The last main event of the year
was the May Fete, a glamorous and glittering affair
capped by the crowning of the king and queen oi
Love and Beauty. A boy and girl represented every
grade as the most popular students of their class.
As June came, many mixed emotions were shown.
Some were glad to leave for a vacationg others were
reluctant to leave the good times and friends. Yet
they knew that their return next year would bring
much, if not more fun. Their fine record at Normandy
made all who knew them positive that this would be
one of the most successful classes to pass within the
"hoary wallsw of Normandy.

Portraying events of the Hfar of 1812 are
'ntembers of an Ainewcrm history Class.
With four pleasant years behind them the 4'Class of 751"
returned to Normandy, when the school opened on Sep-
tember 8, ready to conquer new heights. The halls re-
sounded with merry laughter. Perhaps the gayest laughter
came from the Eleventh Graders. It was one of the most
friendly classes ever to enter the "hoary hallsfi The Juniors,
knowing that they would reign upon the hills of Normandy
only one more year, prepared to assume the responsibilities
of their senior year and to be fine leaders. The leadership
they have been striving for was finally growing near.
Approaching their senior year with great enthusiasm, the
eleventh graders had high scholastic standing. They eagerly
looked forward to a junior year packed with activities,
sporting events, and classwork. Well liked by most of the
faculty, the Juniors lived up to the goals set by previous
classes in scholarship, activities, and citizenship. Their
laughter at the beginning lasted throughout the year.
Striving for perfection in classes, students had a wide
variety of electives from which to choose. Subjects new to
them offered many opportunities.
Juniors had no trouble whatsoever in starting things off
in a big way. Their subjects were as follows: English,
American history, advanced algebra, chemistry, typing,
shorthand. languages, music, Mgynifi dancing, driving,
clothing, journalism, art, and dramatics. Some of the
favorite classes besides 'agymw and lunch, of course, were
the history, Hmathf, and science classes. As English was
the only required subject, students could select courses
that would prepare them for their vocation. Those who
did not intend to go to college were found in such com-
mercial classes as typing and shorthand. During the year
the artistic side of this class produced many projects in
which they brought to the surface their outstanding
abilities. Journalism courses developed writing talents.
Courier and Saga staffs were chosen for next year from
the Juniors who were outstanding in their journalistic
classes. One of the hardest tasks of American history was
HThe Constitution Test" which all students had to pass
before graduation from senior high. Talented members
of the class found lime to participate in the band, orches-
tra, and mixed chorus. Yes, here was a Junior Class that
had put in a year of hard work.

Prom Planners Excel
The Eleventh Grade was a magic year. All sorts of
diversions took up their time. The ,Iunior year was
made interesting and enjoyable hy their participa-
tion in many outside activities. Clubs, sports, and
dances were some of the main activities of this class.
There were such clubs as: language, clramatics,
Tri-Y's, Hi-Y's, I.,ettermen's, Vikingetles, N. F. L.,
Quill and Scroll, Writers' Club, Gamma Sigma, and
for a few-the Honor Society claimed their time.
Planning the 'lPro1n7, helped compose the Work of
the Junior officers. Using the theme 4'Up in Central
Park," they had an outstanding social event.
This class could boast of fine examples of
citizenship. The chosen leaders of this class
were President, Ron Cuarigliag Vice-Presi-
dent, Bill Slatteryg Secretary, Larry Lambg
Treasurer, Charlotte Anders.
The Eleventh Grade social life was, indeed,
a whirl. A high social honor was bestowed upon
a very well-chosen couple who were worthy of
the title :Most Popular Boy and Girl of the
Eleventh Cradew as representatives of the Saga
Court of Love and Beauty. Dan Hamm was
Chosen from all of the candidates for Li'l Abner
at the Backwards Dance of the year.
In athletics this class offered outstanding
boys and girls for our teams. Several starred
on the football, basketball, track, swimming.
or baseball teams. Not to be outdone were the
girl athletes who were principals of hockey,
softball, swimming, and baseball teams.
With but one year to go, this class looked
forward to their senior year with as much vim
and vigor as they had each year in the past.
However. this year will certainly not be for-
gotten as a happy and eventful one.

However varied their talents or skills, Normandy
students found a group of fellow students with sim-
ilar interests. Each group had a particular purpose
and specihed requirements 'lor memhership.
The social groups ollered membership to all and
directed their energy toward welfare work. Other
groups demanded a particular sliill and made
mutual enjoyment the goal. A third series of organ-
izations formed for recognition of student accom-
plishments had rigid requirements.
Opportunities lor learning were numerous and
valualmle experiences were gained in Normandy's
organizations. Through working with others, traits
of cooperation and industry were fostered, and a
democratic spirit was developed. Memhers of stu-
dent government groups learned the principles of
representative government and leadership.
With a record of industry and activity Nor-
mandy's organizations have placed Normandy in the
spotlight and our heam of light now encirclese

Looking otrer the list of oieicly acqilired me1n,be1's
me these Honor Society officers.
The Honor Societyis golden torch symbolized
scholarship, service, character and leadership. To
wear this pin was an honor many students sought,
but few attained.
In order to be elected to membership in the or-
ganization, students must rank in the upper third
of their class scholastically. They must be leaders
in school and must give many hours of service to
it. Outstanding participation in many activities
was a necessary qualification.
Officers of the Senior Honor Society were as
follows: president, Carol Vonckxg vice-president,
Alice Donohoeg secretary, Joyce Roper, treasurer,
,lack Thacker, award secretary, Erma Oliver. The
very capable director was Mr. John Torres.
On May ll., 1950, the group initiated thirty-six
new members. The following program was pre-
sented: Opening the program was a selection by
the theater orchestra. Immediately following this
was the induction ceremony by candlelight, with
last year's officers doing the honors. An inspiring
address was given by Mr. R. A. Waite of the Ameri-
can Youth Foundation titled, uspirit of the Wiri-
nerf, This program made an impressive sight. by
which others might be guided, so that they, too,
could attain such a token of respect and recognition

Junior Scholars Rank Hi h
Highlighting their Spring season, eight ninth
graders and twenty-eight eighth graders were
initiated into the Junior Honor Society in an im-
pressive ceremony May 10 in the Little Theater.
President Marilyn Small presided over the meet-
ing and introduced the other officers as they spoke
on the four qualities a candidate must possess be-
fore he is eligible for membership in the society.
Vice-President Robert Compton talked on citizen-
ship and its relationship to school and community
life. Nellie Damerval, secretary of the club, pointed
out the need for scholarship on the part of each
individual in school.
The necessity for admirable character was
stressed by Treasurer John Rohlfs. This subject
was added just this year as the sponsors felt that
good character was as valuable to a good student
as the other qualities. Mary Me1'kel gave the con-
cluding address on service. She explained how
service to your school is also service to yourself.
A total of seventy-five points were required for
admittance into the Junior Honor Society, with a
minimum of forty in scholarship, fifteen in citizen-
ship, and twelve in service. Sponsors of the society
were Mrs. Helen Kuehner and Mrs. Eleanor

Letter Winner Lead in
Trying to earn their way toward a 1000 point
letter and toward membership in the Vikingettes,
these girls gained points by: getting on varsity teams,
being captains, going to all practices, cheerleading,
and teaching young students the finer points of the
harder sports. Except for the fact that they didnit use
paddles to see that their orders were carried out, the
Vikingettes had a similar initiation to the Letter-
menis. Two or three years were required for a girl to
become eligible for membership in the honored Vik-
ingettesi club. If something puzzled them, 'there was
Miss Martha Ferguson to explain it. They were looked
upon as the backbone of the athletic department and
were held high as examples for others. To win ex-
citedly and lose gracefully was one of the pointers
they learned in good sportsmanship for all games.

ln the spring the Lettermen initiated new mem-
bers to the club. '4Rookies" were their oflicial titles.
Shoe shining, comedy acts, antics, and laughs were
the results. For three days and one night, rookies were
given rough treatment. By singing and dancing and
doing stunts they collected more money and votes
for their St. Pat's candidate and provided entertain-
ment for all. A penny a pound was the price of ad-
mission to their spring dance, the uLettermen7s Ounce
Bouncef' Each one of the sports represented in the
club: football, basketball, swimming, baseball, and
golf, selected their own candidate for queen. ln
everything they did Mr. Morris Blitz advised them.
At school work as well as sports they had to be above
average to get in the Lettermen Club. They were one
of the most active organizations at school. A select
club, it was limited to fellows who had earned a
letter in their respective sports.
Lan ua es Aid Peace
To help stimulate a more thorough understanding
between the nations of the world was the ideal be-
hind the new organization, The lnternational Lan-
guage Association. Instead of having four small lan-
guage clubs with separate ideas, habits and ambi-
tions, they united into one club with one interest and
one idea. Together they studied customs, business
life, and the racial traits of all countries. They worked
toward mutual understanding and the application
Meeting on Thursday nights, they entertained
guests, listened to speakers from other countries, or
talked in small groups in the language they were
studying. Their year came to a peak with the colorful
celebration of Language Week made even more suc-
cessful through the efforts of Mr. Grarnmaticoff and
Mr. Blitz. At an assembly they portrayed life in
foreign lands. Appropriate costumes, songs, and
dances were used to carry out the central theme of
the week which was Worlcl Peace.
Each ol the four groups had its own officers and
two representatives to the Council. Then the Council
picked four general ollicers from the representatives
to govern and settle questions that were put before
them. For a new organization it worked very well in
its first year of operation.

Complying with the sterling standards of health.
fellowship and helpful service was the twelfth grade
Tri-Y. Having only one requirement, that of being a
twelfth grader, there was a large membership. Hold-
ing to their rule of service, the girls took under 'their
wing a group of orphans. As a Christmas good deed
they gave the tiny tots a party. Each girl selected a
name and brought a present for that persong they
also furnished ice cream and all the trimmings. In
May they sponsored a picnic for the youngsters. Two
speakers affiliated with the Y. M. C. A. came out to
tell the girls more about the work being done hy
youth organizations all over St. Louis. Another proj-
ect was the hook review given for the eleventh grade
Tri-Y by Mrs. Skinner, a former history teacher at
Normandy. One of the most interesting meetings was
taken over by Miss Crammaticoff, also a former
teacher at Normandy. She told of her many adven-
turous experiences while teaching in Japan. Strictly
for their own amusement there was a party in April
and closing the year a picnic in May. Proudly claim-
ing that she had never found a group with such varied
talents and backgrounds, who got along so well, was
the sponsor, Mrs. Forgus. A busy and vigorous or-
ganization, the twelfth grade Tri-Y stood as an in-
spiration for the younger and less experienced
Ti-Ygs Provide Fellowship
An emblem of fellowship, loyalty, integrity, and
democracy symbolized all the Tri-Ys.
Such projects as helping the needy, giving to the
Red Cross, and promoting general welfare, occupied
the spare time of the Eleventh Grade Tri-Y. A clos-
ing highlight of the year was the book review given
hy the Twelfth Grade Tri-Y.
A very active club was the Tenth Grade Tri-Y.
Guided hy Mrs. Mayhall, the club participated in
sport activities. The climax of the year came when
the girls challenged the teachers to a volleyball
gameg afterwards they held a dance to celebrate their
victory. Since all members had an enjoyable time,
they called it a successful year.

Under the direction of new sponsors, Mr. ,lack
Riehl and M1'. Ernest Arnold, the Hi-Y completed its
twenty-seventh year of service to Normandy. Named
after the two original sponsors who first started the
Hi-Y here at Normandy, the chapters were known as
"The William Christian Chapterw and "The Pit Green
Chapterf, Rather than try to explain the purpose of
this organization it would do just as well to state
their motto: WTO create, maintain, and extend
throughout the school and community the high stand-
ards of Christian characterfi Included in their pro-
gram for the year were many worthwhile activities
such as the 1950 Buzz Book, which contained the
names, addresses and telephone numbers of every
student at Normandy. Their annual Get Acquainted
Dance this year was known as the '4Hi Nay Borf,
Finally, they collected canned goods and packed them
in baskets for distribution to the needy at Ch1'istmas-
time. Basketball competition furnished a keen rivalry
between the two chapters, who were battling hard for
the title at Normandy.
Because of outsanding work in their chapters, Bob
Dunford, Merle Banta, and Jack Bock were chosen
to represent Normandy at the Missouri Hi-Y Youth
and Government Model Legislature at Jefferson City,
The spirit of Oi1.1'iSt21z.as is forever with Ili-Y.
Orchesis Practices C0-ordination
Striving to develop correct body position, proper
leg movement, and perfect muscle coordination plus
grace, Normandy's advanced dance group, Orchesis,
practiced three days a week to develop these qualities.
Workiiig tirelessly at side pulls, body lifts, skips,
and leaps, the girls perfected certain techniques.
For instance, the rigidity of the body was necessary
for the sharp movements in fast music, however, easy
liowing, connected movements were developed for
work with waltzes. Body movement alone could not
have given the effect, it was the head held high, the
upward eyes, the pointed feet. and the expression on
their faces. 4'Girls dance from the tips of your toes
to the tops of your headfl shouted Mrs. Elizabeth
Schneider, director of Orchesis. Their first public
exhibition was at the Christmas Program, in which
they used both sharp and dreamy music, this showed
the girls had adjusted themselves to any type music.
The May Fete was based on uCinderella,' a fairy
tale. Every type of technique was used to make this
story come to life. The girls really made one live the
story as it unfolded before him.
Membership in this group was the aim of every
girl, but once she was elected to it she had to work
very hard to become a skilled performer.
Praise ye the Lord!

Juniors Like Clubs
Through the effort of these students, Normandy
maintained its previous high standard for co-
operation among the pupils. The Hall Guards kept
order during the minutes between classes, while
the dramatics clubs spent their leisure minutes in
preparing for and practicing one act plays.
During the intervals between periods all the
students poured out of their rooms and crowded
the halls: there was need for order. A group of
selected boys and girls patrolled the school and
maintained the peace. Besides seeing that there
was no congestion, this group had to prevent run-
ning, loitering, and to enforce logical and courte-
ous rules of behavior. If everyone had observed
the most common rules of courtesy in the first
place, there would have been no need for this
club. Not only did they enforce the rules, but
they set fine examples for all to follow.
There were so many junior high pupils inter-
ested in dramatics that the group had to be di-
vided into two groups. One met on Thursday,
while the other met on Tuesday. Undertaking
nothing too complicated, the two groups worked
as one and produced only one-act plays. Trying
to perfect the one-act plays: they varied them by
producing mysteries, dramas, and comedies. With
no outside help at all, these youngsters divided
among themselves the tasks that had to be done.
Because they were so interested in their jobs, they
accomplished each job with brilliant results. They
did their own lighting, worked on publicity, and
learned the proper way to apply make-up. Tackling
such a huge job meant that all the responsibility
rested on their shoulders. Confident in their abil-
ity, Mrs. Marie Stimson, their director, supervised
their work but allowed them to work out their

Groups Aid School
Composed of representatives from student
groups and the faculty, the Student-Teacher Plan-
ning Council discussed campus problems. Look-
ing at them from the Viewpoint of students and
teachers enabled the council to decide which were
most important. After reaching certain decisions.
they called Town Meeting assemblies to hear sug-
gestions offered by the student body as a whole.
Raising money for a scoreboard and cleaning the
campus were the most pressing problems. Students
earned money for this purpose by a night of enter-
tainment for all the people in the community. Hav-
ing been a success, the council closed its first year
An early start in dramatics was offered to the
ninth graders for the first time. Distinguishing
itself as a promising organization, the Ninth Grade
Dramatics Club, g'The Normandy Players," dem-
onstrated its ability in 'Tirst Dress Suitf a com-
edy and mfhank You Doctor," a melodrama farce.
Practicing every Tuesday and Thursday, they be-
came polished actors. Mrs. Marie Stimson, direc-
tor, accepted as members all who were interested
in dramatics, but regular attendance was a require-
ment for retaining membership in the club.
Participants in Diversified Occupations never
had an idle moment. Ambition was a necessity
for D. O. workers who attended classes for the
first three hours of the day and then worked at
regular jobs in the afternoon. Of these three
classes, there was one in which the students studied
their own and related occupations. Full credit for
their work on the job made it possible for them
to complete their high school education in the
usual four years. Under the guidance of Mr.
Rohlfs, the D. O. students acquired jobs which
provided valuable training and allowed them to
earn while they were learning.

Aides Give Service
Some students gained no glory for work they
did. Their chief interests were to provide better
service for other students. These groups were the
Nurses Aids, Librarians, and Office WOfkC1'S, who
did truly display the spirit of the Norsemen, which
was courage and loyalty.
Mrs. Milne, the school librarian, trained her
student helpers to accept needed responsibilities.
Under her supervision, the assistants performed
numerous duties. They issued books. filed cards,
checked books, and replaced them on the proper
shelves, they learned how to keep up with the
latest books published and the right Way in which
a good library was run. lt helped them learn
orderly thinking. ln these ways they gained worth-
while knowledge for the future.
Typing, running errands, and filing were duties
performed by Mrs. Riehlis office workers. They
worked together to see that our school office system
was run smoothly, that everything was kept in the
right places, and that all notices were put in the
right boxes. Ranking high in courtesy and de-
pendability these workers proved to be excellent
in their jobs. Miss Beffa's ofhce assistants worked
to keep the attendance records of daily attend-
ance clear and absences down to a minimum.
Telephoning, collecting attendance slips, and typ-
ing records were main tasks. Breaking down the
reasons for our efhcient school, we found these
girls to be factors in this cause. For those plan-
ning business careers this stepping stone in their
lives would later help them tremendously. To all
these people we owe our gratitude for helping us.
Each year a complete checkup of teeth, weight,
eyes, and ears is given to all Normandy students
with the help of the Nurses Aids. Under the ad-
vice of Mrs. Anna Weibe, the Nurses Aids per-
formed their many duties in preparation for future
training, after graduation, in that field. After
tests were given, these girls gave the nurse valued
assistance in compiling records of these tests. The
Aids filed reports. ran errands. and did any task
asked of them.
These are the keepers of the books.

This is the way we keep our health.
Help is ur Aim
Turning the wheels behind the scenes on all
occasions, the fellows in Visual Aids, Public Ad-
dress, and Photography deserved more credit than
we were able to give them. These boys added
greatly to a smooth running modern high school.
Without the capable assistance of the Photog-
raphers, the Courier and Saga would have been
lost. Not only did these boys take the pictures,
but they developed, printed, and enlarged the
photos with real professional skill. Learning by
experience, this group of boys gained valuable
knowledge in photography by actual contact with
technical problems. These boys were always will-
ing to cooperate, even to the extent of taking pic-
tures on their own time. Led by Mr. Hoefler, these
boys made possible the smoother and more sys-
tematical means by which our school was run.
Knowledge in this field has prepared some for
their future jobs.
Witli entertaining and educational films, slides,
and photographic examples, the Visual Aids
helped to make classes more interesting and lively
for the pupils. Advantages of movies was far
greater than any that could have been derived
from text books. Ediciency was a major '41nust"g
the boys learned how to repair, operate, and clean
both the camera and the films. Various subjects
were served by this squad, among which history,
English, and science were the most used.
Capable handling of the schoolls sound equip-
ment was the huge job undertaken by the Public
Address squad. All the clear voices heard at school
programs were through the tireless effort of these
boys. At the dances, the floor shows and the coro-
nations ofthe kings and queens were clearly heard
because of this industrious group. Not only did
the boys set up the microphones but tested them,
worked for just the right tone control, and ad-
tone according to an individual's vol-

Ability is Useful
Possessing natural ability in any field was a
quality not given to all of us. Only very few were
ever gifted with such talent, that is one reason Why
these people should stand out from among our
Underclassmen and seniors alike respected and
admired members of the Creative Writers, Club.
Guided by Miss Esther Goff, all the members
worked hard to publish their annual ulnklingsf'
which was a book made up completely of their
own works. To admit new members, the club held
two contests. Offered as choices were short stories,
essays, and poems from which the students chose
one to write on. Entries were judged by members
and the winners were admitted into the club. This
was the only method of entry. Many students from
Normandy had their items published in national
magazines. Once a month they met for a upot
luckw supper and read each others, papers aloud
for criticism and comments.
Many were the times that afternoon classes in
the Junior High wondered if the Senior High was
again burning. Enthusiastic members of Chem-
istry Club Were causing echoing booms and
strange odors. The club met after school once a
week to extend further their knowledge of science.
Besides being interesting and helpful, the club
aided the student to know the basic ideas on which
the true age of science was based. Sponsored by
Miss Ernestine Long, club members submitted en-
tries to the Science Fair, and many were awarded
To have the privilege of wearing the golden key
of the Quill and Scroll was the main ambition of
every journalism student. Hard work, skill, excel-
lent journalistic ability, and a high scholastic
standing were requirements for admission to the
club. Of course, you had to be an eleventh or
twelfth grader even to be considered. They earned
points toward this goal by writing news stories
and financing the book. They had to be recom-
mended by the sponsor of the Saga. Miss Frances
Brewington, or the sponsor of the Courier, Mrs.
Mary Still. At an annual banquet new members
were presented the Gold Key.
Out of the mouths of youth offtimes
Our microscopes are trained on future
Can there be a greater honor?
Talents are Varied
While studying in school, some students found
they had natural abilities toward some subjects.
These students joined clubs to further their abil-
ities and knowledge.
Providing the lighter touch in history was the
Gamma Sigma Club. Searching further into the
facts and knowledge of history was their ambition.
If someone wanted to join, she gave her name to
an old member, and it was brought before the
club. Then Mrs. Adele Skinner, sponsor and for-
mer history teacher at Normandy, checked to see
if the student had above a MC, in history and had
leadership and integrity. Toward the end of the
year, the club held its annual banquet, at that
time it elected new officers, brought in new mem-
bers, and said last good-byes to those who went
off to college.
Showing great individual style in all creations,
the Art Society produced many beautiful and
colorful projects this year. They were led on this
road by Miss Helen Madsen. One of the most
decorative was the 1950 Beaux Art Ball, this year
known as the 4'Ca1'ousel.,' This was the highlight
of the year, but besides this they created projects
in the field of painting, potery, and clay fig-
urines. Each member showed great promise, but
most outstanding was the clubls president, John
Ezell. He showed exceptional promise as a fu-
Membership was open to anyone who showed
interest in artistic work and exhibited talent in
any of the wide fields of a1't.
For those interested in dramatics, oratory, ex-
temporaneous speaking, or any other form of
public speaking, the National Forensic League
offered an excellent opportunity. Miss Colleen Wil-
kinson enjoyed another year of helping students
become good speakers.
Meeting once each month at a member's house,
they operated under a new constitution. Lead by
Marilyn Vogt, Lois Stege, and Sally 'Dillard the
League added another prosperous year to its
credit. Their main project was keeping a scrap-
book of clippings from papers. These clippings
told of past or present members of the N. F. L.

Despite innumerable obstacles, the Senior Orches-
tra was able to present several successful concerts.
Hampering their rehearsals was the split schedule,
which caused all students to practice at different
times. Eventually a satisfactory schedule was worked
out that benefited all who were involved.
Highlighting their part of the Thanksgiving Music
Association was the playing of HRoherta." As a direct
contrast to this, the orchestra also played Hliiugue in
C Minori' hy Bach.
Soon members were diligently Working on music
for the annual Christmas Concert.This year the Music

innovation at Normandy was introduced with this
concert. Before each selection was played, program
notes were read from a prepared script.
Besides playing for thc Music Association, the
orchestra performed for the P. T. A., Junior and
Senior graduationsg and as an added honor, a string
quartet was requested to play for the American pre-
miere of Benjamin Brittain's new operetta.
Dean Skelton, trumpet player, was chosen as the
most valuable senior menilaer of the orchestra.
Thus, through perseverance and faith in the or-
ganization, Director L. W. Guenther finally admitted
that he was well-pleased with the results.

sented wonderful entertainment in the form of music
before and at the half of all home football games.
Between football games, the band played at a
Hallowelen celebration in Ferguson. As a reward,
they were admitted to a dance afterwards. Marching
in a parade in Pine Lawn and playing for a Mothers,

The next major concert was the Winter Concert,
in which such songs as: HlVlemories of Stephen

Junior Urchestra ehearses
Jtmzior Strings gain perfection fm' the County
Because of diliiculties in arranging the time for
practice of the Junior Orchestra, Director L. W.
Guenther was unable to prepare the group for any
public appearances. Nevertheless, the orchestra con-
tained much promising young talent for the future.
The members managed to meet three times a week
and worked hard on many different techniques so that
they would be well prepared for the concert orchestra.
The students, themselves, had their hopes focused on
someday being members of the Senior Orchestra in
which their talents might be used to form a line
orchestra that Normandy could appreciate.
Although beginners. much talent was evident
among the groupg they played arrangements of the
old masters and sometimes even borrowed music
from the senior groups. Eager co-operation with each
other and Mr. Guenther made the orchestra an enjoy-
able organization. Everyone agreed that this music
organization was an asset to Normandy.
Be inners Learn Fundamentals
Among the most outstanding organizations on the
Normandy campus were the musical groups. ln this
large group, the Junior Band was included. It was
composed of students from the seventh through the
ninth grade. They rehearsed on Monday, Tuesday
and alternate Fridays. There were forty-eight mem-
bers in the hand.
All year they practiced faithfully for the Spring
concert: that was their big event. Their most impor-
tant goal was memhership in the Senior Band. Work-
ing hard both sectionally and individually, members
of the Junior Band were taught the fundamentals of
timing and co-ordination and production of a well-
Occasionally they had try-outs to determine
whether the student had made enough improvement
to allow him to move to a more important position.
Attaining and keeping the first chair in his section
was important to each player.
Directed by Mr. Edwin Gould, this talented group
was an important organization in the Junior School.

Senior Choristers Make Melodies
The Senior Mixed Chorus was one of the largest
organizations in Normandy. Any musically inclined
student could attend the practices and automatically
become a member. Every Monday or Wednesday
evening after school, the cafeteria echoed with the
voices of the Junior and Senior pupils. The old and
new songs came alive again under Mr. David Thorn-
ton's direction. Because the chorus was an extra-
curricular subject, the choristers worked doubly hard
after school to make perfect the blending of their
The Mixed Chorus appeared in all the Music Asso-
ciation concerts. Diligent practice and endless re-
hearsals led to expert performances. Such favorites
as uDry Bones," uThe Wo1'ld ls Waiting for the Sun-
rise," and 4'Make Mine Country Stylew could all be
heard throughout the gymnasium. During the weeks
preceding the concerts, the chorus willingly gave up
time and effort to give sparkling entertainment.
Standing in formation in their deep maroon robes
and white stoles, they were a credit to Normandy.
These choristers were sincerely interested in good
musicianship and worked earnestly to achieve just
the right'interpretation and intonation.
The students who belonged to the Mixed Chorus
felt they obtained a lot from it. The concerts were
an enjoyment as well as musical education. There Was
the last minute frenzy of lining up according 'to
voice and marching in, the thrill of having done a
performance well, and the audience applause. All
these are reasons Why Normandy students, although
most of them were members of many other organiza-
tions, came out after classes to belong to this excel-
lent musical group.

Thorton picked the most zealous singers. These

This year as in the past, sports at Normandy were
a community interest. Nothing contrihuted more to
keeping our school in the spotlight than the thrilling
games exhibited hy the Vikings and Vikingettes. Not
only did they provide fun and excitement tor sport

dents, ones who knew the joy of winning as well as
the values of defeat.

RITENOUR 6. NORMANDY 6
Opening the 1949 football season, the strong Vik-
ing eleven and a solid. hard-hitting Ritenour team
battled to a 6-6 deadlock under the lights at Nor-
Obliged to kick off after losing the toss, Captain
Don Haynes sent a low bad bouncing ball toward
Ritenour's left halfback, Who fumbled just long
enough for a Viking lineman to pounce on it. Even
though deep in Ritenour's territory, the red and green
couldn't score. The Huskies weren't able to make any
real gains as the first quarter ended without score.
In the second quarter the Vikings drew first blood.
Quarterback Dan Hamm completed a short pass to
Don Haynes, who was stopped just short of the goal
line after his magnificent over-the-shoulder catch.
From there, Dave Smith plowed through the Riten-
our line to register the first score of the game. The
try for the extra point hit the upright of the goal
post and fell harmlessly away. As the half ended Nor-
mandy held its slim lead. 6

Cagemen Provide a Thrill a Minute y,
The 1949-50 basketball season was opened at
Normandy with Southwest shading the Vikings, but
Normandy came back making quick work of Luther-
an. After losing to the Cleveland Dutchmen, the cage-
men went on to beat Lebanon and Buffalo, two strong
downstate teams. Journeying to Beaumont. they suf-
fered their third defeat, a heartbreaking thriller when
the home team sank a field goal as the gun went oil,
losing by one point.
Entering the Christmas tournament with high
hopes, the Normandy cagemen toppled Roosevelt,
Union, and St. Peters in quick succession. only to
lose an uphill battle to St. Louis U. High's Dauphins
in the finals. Although losing, the Vikings showed
everyone a team which wouldn't be beaten until the
game was over.
Opening the Suburban League, Normandy bowled
Vikings Win Again
over a scrappy Brentwood five. Wellston, however,
beginning their role as spoilers, squeezed out a one-
point victory. Strapping back into winning form the
Vikings decisively beat Welbstel' Groves, Ferguson
and St. Charles.
ln the Wvebster Tourney the Vikings again en-
countered St. Charles and Brentwood, and were easy
victors, but Kirkwood then dumped the Riegertmen
in the finals.
Hesuming play in the suburban race, Normandy
whipped a weak Maplewood five. Ritenour put up a
stubborn fight before going down to a one-point de-
feat. The cagemen were out to avenge their defeat by
Kirkwood in the Webster Tourney. but Kirkwood
again proved to be more powerful. A victory over
Clayton and a win in an overtime thriller at U. City
gave Normandy the co-championship with Kirkwood
of the Suburban League.
Normandy smothered Hadley Tech, 61-19, in the
opening game of the Regional Tourney. A victory
over Wellstcnii avenged the earlier defeat by Wellstciii
and moved Normandy into the finals, but Beaumont

Vikings throw the ball around horn.
Under the watchful eye of Coach Art Shipherd,
many candidates came out and displayed their base-
ball ability. Of these Mr. Shipherd selected only those
who would aid the team. He realized a complete
rebuilding job would have to be done and that many
inexperienced players would have to be tested. Us-
ing the few lettermen that returned as the backbone
of the team, Coach Shipherd entered the Vikings in
a couple of practice tilts before the actual season
ln the Hrst league game, Normandy was edged
5 to 3 by the experienced Clayton Greyhounds, a
strong contender for the Suburban League title. After
a game was rained out at Maplewood, the Vikings
played host to U. City. Even though the Vikings lost
again by a big score, Coach Shipherd found out
more about his young team. Wfellston came next, and
the ace Wellston pitcher turned down the Vikings
for their third straight loss. Journeying to Ritenoul'
for the fourth league game, the Vikings displayed
good power at the plate and collected twelve solid
hits and seven runs. Augie Abensschein blasted out
a tremendous home run and a double, and John
Vitale cracked out three solid singles in this gameg
but the Vikings lost by one scant run. Although Rich
Otey pitched a good game, he ran into trouble at
Maplewood. In this replayed contest the Vikings
came out on the short end, 5-1. The next league game

Vikings had showed only mild success in all depart-

by a passion to win, to fulfill the typical masculine
urge to prove physical superiority over lheir oppo-
nents, seeking the satisfaction of a race well run and.
if possible, the glory of the winners' circle.
First we would like to introduce ,lim Kennedy and
Ralph Edwards. These were the sprinters-speed
personified. They reacted instantaneously to the
sound of the oflicial's gung they shot from the start-
ing blocks and flew to the finish of the 100 and 220-
yard dash almost before one realized they had begun.
Now meet Clift Johnson, Don Jones, and Nile
Jamison, the Viking pole vaulters. A slender pole,
a driving leap, and split second timing lifted them
high into space and over the bar.
Woody Porter, Bill Slattery, Bill Overbeck, and
Fred Bommarito were the high jumpers and broad
jumpers. ln working either for altitude or for distance
powerful legs were needed to drive them 'through
The 440-yard dash was the race of Captain Pete
Smith who possessed both the speed and stamina
vital to success in this event.
No, that wasn't a flying saucer-it was a discus
thrown by Bob Eckardt, one of the big bruisers of
the track team, who with a toss of 155 feet and 3
inches, broke the Normandy record and the Uni-

Juniors Show Varsit Finesse
Coming to the junior high, the seventh and eighth
graders began learning the fundamentals of passing,
shooting and pivoting before ever playing in com-
petition with other schools. Coach Van Ronzelen
knew that these boys must first learn techniques.
After learning the techniques and fundamentals of
basketball, the boys on the junior high basketball
team began using their knowledge when they played
other county teams. The junior teams were deter-
mined by the players height, weight and grade. The
TCU team, led by: Jim Johnston, Jim Heidbreder and
Rich Aubuchon, made a Hne showing by winning
four games and losing two. The MDN and MEM teams
also promised to provide future Varsity material.
Discovery of new material for the junior high
track team was one of the main purposes for the 'tire-
less efforts of Mr. Van Ronzelen. He tried to develop
and further the ability of junior high track aspiranls.
ln the MCM division the boys who made outstanding
times as individuals and as a relay team were Kent
Nichols, Don Joeckel, ,lim Heiclbrecler and Harold
Ray. Romer Hodges threw the discus, and Orville
Beare and Jim Heidbreder threw the shot. Jim John-
ston and Kent Nichols high jumped. The MDT divi-
sion was led by sprinter Richard Eder, Bill McClure,
and Dave Premer. On the ME" team Dililiy Ditto,
i'Creg', Smith, Jack Crider and Fred Stewart were
the sprinters, and Harold Duke offered stiff compe-
tition to opponents in pole vault.

The ambition ofthe seventh and eighth grade girls
was to earn their G. A. A. letter. ln order to do this
they hurried out to the girls' athletic field each Tues-
day and Thursday from ll :SO a. ni. until 1:00 p. m. I
They worked hard to achieve membership in the
Junior Girls' Athletic Association-a title they were
proud to bear. Wheii the cold Weather started, the
girls fled to a warmer spot-the girls' junior gym.
There they learned the fundamentals of basketball.
As warm weather returned, enthusiastic young ath-
letes went out for baseball. Amr-ioiis eyes look

After the first day of school had started and things it ,f,ffe,,,,,tgfi,
had become routine, the girls hurried to the athletic
held to begin their skill as hockey players. For the
hrst few Weeks they learned how to pass and play
more accurately, because they knew that in order to
win they needed to be accurate. After they had
learned the fundamentals well enough, they chose
teams and played against each other. Suzanne Goeck-

Victories Are Man
Often neglected in schools, girls' sports were
important at Normandy. Since competition for
varsity teams was keen, Coach Ferguson had a
chance to select only skilled players.
Membership on the varsity team was the am-
bition of every hockey enthusiast. Consequently,
from the time the girls were in the ninth grade,
they practiced long hours to learn fundamental
skills. When this had been accomplished, Coach
Martha jane Ferguson chose the best players for
the l950 Varsity. This team then played other
schools. Three rivals were chosen: Ritenour,
Principia and Clayton. Playing very skillful
ball, Normandy defeated two of these schools-
Ritenour 12-01 and Principia K3-23.
Chosen from the best talent of the class teams,
the girls, Varsity basketball team was truly "the
cream of the cropfl To be selected for this team
was, indeed, an honor. Twenty girls became
members of the group. Playing similar girls,
teams from other schools, Normandy,s varsity
won every game in its league schedule. Coached
by Miss Martha Jane Ferguson, the varsity was
the core of girls, sports at Normandy.
According to Miss Ferguson the Varsity volley-
ball team did very well. Of the games played,
they lost only one. The volleyball season started
on April ll and lasted only ten school days,
but these girls played eight games in that time.
The team enjoyed its games with other schools,
such as: Wellston, University City, Clayton, Bay-
less, Affton, Fairview twice, and Ritenour. As
some girls graduate this year, the team must be
almost completely rebuilt.
Since Saga went to press before the softball
season had begun, the coach wasnlt definite about
who would be on the varsity team. It was fairly
certain, however, that the regulars: Dottie Bett,
Shirley Hibbs, Dolores Rozier, Betty Hundley,
Myrtle Davis, Charlotte Anders, and Betty Gel-
ven would be members. Three games were sched-
uled for the season-one with Vvellston and two
with Ritenour. Even though they hadn't been
played. we all hoped that the girls would be

Varsity is the Aim
The freshman and sophomore girls made ex-
cellent progress in their sports. Although their
afternoon schedule was a drawback. they prac-
ticed diligently in the morning.
Hockey could well be called a forgotten sportg
in most places it gains little attention, but at Nor-
mandy it is well noted. Girls who had never played
were apt to shun it, but very few who played
madly in the crisp fall air forgot it. This thrill
lured many underclass girls out before school on
icy as well as mild days. Aided by Miss Ferguson,
they practiced the uskillswz passing, dribbling
and working as a team. Although they had no
chalice to play other teams, they worked diligently,
and their eyes sparkled as they spoke of next year.
The Ninth and Tenth Graders made a fine show-
ing in basketball. The Ninth Grade practiced from
9 130 until 11:00 on Monday and Friday morningsg
they had no classes during the morning. Tenth
Graders came on Tuesday and Thursday from
11:15 until 12:30. Because of their late school
day, no games could be played with other schools,
but there was an intramural tournament between
the Ninth and Tenth Graders who went out for
Meeting on Tuesday and Thursday morning
before school. the Ninth and Tenth Grade girls
practiced to improve their techniques in volley-
ball. Expertly coached by Miss Ferguson and Mrs.
Dunbar. the girls soon acquired the necessary
skills. Mildred Davis and Shirley Brose, tenth
grade managers, deserved credit for the assistance
they gave the coaches and teams in attaining the
two victories and one defeat of the season.
Many athletic girls of the ninth and tenth grades
turned out for the first practice of the softball
season. Although they couldn't participate in
games with other schools, these girls seemed glad
to be on a softball diamond again. April saw
ahnost sixty of them there each morning. Prac-
ticing the fundamentals of softball, they soon
gained skill in catching, throwing, and batting.

To have all Normandy High School girls know
at least the basic rudiments of swimming was the
final goal of Swimming Instructor Martha Fer-
guson. As a means to this end she incorporated
unique methods to inspire them.
This year beginning swimmers not only had
the advantage of learning how to swim but also
received pointers on intricate strokes and involved
water ballet routines. These novice swimmers were
not eligible for water ballet work until they had
won their Bed Cross Beginning Swimmers Badge.
Each requirement of the Badge had a point valueg
as the girl demonstrated her ability to execute it,
her skill was noted and evaluated. When the swim-
mer had finished all the requirements, the points
were totaled. This determined whether the girl
passed or not.
Splash! Splash! At the beginning of the year
the ninth and tenth grade girls' swimming classes
were just getting under way. Three divisions of
swimming classes were formed: the beginners, in-
termediates and advanced. In the beginners?
classes there were about twenty strokes that had
to be mastered by the end of the year. The inter-
mediate classes had twelve and the advanced had
ten. For each stroke mastered five points were
given. These points were averaged with a sports-
manship grade, which consisted of responsibility,
orderly conduct, and class attitude. Swimming was
definitely one of the girls' favorite classes.
The colorful and graceful movements involved
in Ballet Swimming attracted many senior high
Participating in Ballet Swimming were forty
ninth and tenth grade girls, from the swimming
classes, and thirty juniors and senio1's who prac-
ticed after school on Monday and Vlfednesday.
Results of the diligent practice were very grace-
fully displayed at their three evening perform-
ances April 19-20. The program contained novelty
numbers, floating formations, and rhythmic move-
ments. Those doing solo numbers were: Joyce
Roper, Betty Doney, Pat Dobyns. and Molly Price.
These graceful ballerinas were thoroughly en-
joyed by all the spectators.

Dancing is Popular
Dancing, the most popular subject for girls,
developed beauty, poise. self-confidence, and in-
tricacy of movement in all participants. Orchesis,
the outstanding dance group, was composed of
girls who had perfected the fundamentals, and
were ready to design dances.
ln the Beginners' Dance Group elasticity was
the keynote for Mrs. Dunbar's eager pupils. Exer-
cise after exercise was performed by girls who
were determined to lilnber up and strengthen
muscles in order to become more graceful dancers.
Rhythm, dance movement, and composition of
dances were the goals of the ninth graders. All
this hard work was rewarded when May Fete time
came around, for the girls were allowed to perform
in this big event.
Girls. eagerly preparing for their chance to
audition for Orchesis, studied advanced dancing
under the expert direction of Mrs. Elizabeth
Schneider. Various exercises composed the be-
ginning of the hour, while routines done to
assorted tempos comprised the latter part. Stu-
dents were encouraged to perform original dances.
A part of their grade was based on this ability.
Grace and form were stressed. Every movement
was made in time to the music and was suited to
the idea to be created. Using a specialty number,
members of these classes participated in the Christ-
mas program. Toward the end of the year all em-
phasis was placed on preparation of the May Fete.
The advanced classes, as well as the Orchesis, ap-
peared in this t1'aditional event.
Square dancing, one of the newer activities, hit
an all-time high in popularity. Mrs. Helen Dunbar,
who introduced the vigorous dance last year,
found an even more enthusiastic following in 1950.
Students from all grades participated in the stren-
uous activity. Swirling about the floor in their
brightly colored costumes, the dancers created
fantastic kaleidoscopic designs. Two exhibitions
sets performed in the Symphony of Fashion and at
many other affairs. They received recognition for
their work in pictures and write-ups in the Post-
Dispatch and the Globe-Democrat.

Throughout the year. from autumn to spring,
there were various social events to keep the school
year alive. Since no one could expect to enter the
world with only Hhook knowledgef' picnics, dances,
parties and hay rides became a part of every stu-
dentis life. Many organizations sponsored these
events in order to secure money for their group.
Fads and fancies, trends and tendencies were all
part of the exciting year.
Many assemblies were sponsored hy the school.
These programs enalrled the students to hear inter-
esting speakers in various professions and fields.
At other of the assemblies, the students took part in
discussing the prolmlelns of the school. Of course, thc
year would not have heen complete without our tra-
ditional May Fete which hrought the social season
to an exciting cliinax.

Things were a little different this year as we
filed from the buses to begin a new year and a
new half century. After greeting old friends and
meeting new ones, these seniors paused to gaze
up at the Senior Building, which this year held
only the administrators' offices. The old tower
clock still smiled down at them, however, and
watched the crowds of friends lireak up to

vacations, summer romances and lazy days
were to he forgotten as we settled down to our
books and began the new year.

for many hours on the decorations, and their
effort was not in vain. The minute you
stepped inside of the door, you were no
longer conscious of the basketball court and
the bleachers, but only of the magnificent
spectacle which you beheld. Surrounded by
white horses with Hying manes and tails, a
huge carousel, the theme of the dance, stood
in the center of the floor. There were multi-
colored streamers and balloons sweeping
from the top of this wonderful merry-go-

Once again the inevitable rookie week ar-
rived. For many days preceding this week, the
new Lettermen began to sJeak more res ect-

fully to the "veterans" hoping that they would
be a little lenient. Finally though, all the veteran
lettermen received thick, varnished Jaddles and
rookie week was in full swing. The campus was
full of football players riding to class on the
back of some 98-pound wrestler. No swats were
given without due cause: however, due cause
was always found.
"How can we improve our curriculum to
better suit the needs of our students?" This
was the question that was given to the four
speakers: .lim Kennedy, Gene Walters, Marilyn
Vogt and Judy Harrington. Their job was to
prepare three-minute speeches on different
phases of the question.
Bruce Barrington of KXOK tape recorded
the junior Town Meeting at Normandy for a

there was a question and answer period.
The four sections of the language depart-
ment combined their talents to produce the best
assembly of the year as a part of their Language
Week. This assembly included representatives
from many countries who performed skits
symbolizing their country. The root beer and
pretzels consumed by German representatives
tasted good and created a wonderful picture ol
a Cernian villageris evening entertainment.
The French class put on a similar skit using
a sidewalk cafe as their setting. The Latin class
reproduced the assassination of Caesar in a
modern day versiong this proved to be very
The bull iight was reproduced by the Spanish
classes. This, too, kept the audience laughing,
for the antics of this two-sectioned bull was far
from the usual happenings in a bull ring.
The climax to the assembly was a world-
wide dehnition of peace.

As The Pla
The senior play, NDear Ruthfl directed by
Miss Colleen WllkCllSOIl, was given on April
5, 6, and 7. With Marilyn Vogt and Bill Berg-
feld playing the leads, the hilarious experiences
of Ruth and her family were related. Ruth Ray,
as the typical "little" sister, of course, was the
character providing most of the comedy. Her
portrayal of a drunk but sad little girl was one
of the best.
The seniors were happy to know that they
made money and had a lot of fun tool
Beginning with aprons, the sewing classes
started their yearis work. They had planned
wardrobes, cut patterns and some even suc-
ceeded well enough to make themselves Easter

Club. Under the direction of Miss Cook and
Mrs. Stoddard, the girls modeled some lovely

The senior Tri-Y, sponsored by Mrs. Mary

varied booths set up inside the 'Ggymf' The
Kissing Booth, Fortune Teller's Booth, and
Dart Came Booth were just a few, but the most
popular by far was the Fish Pond.
The carnival decorations added to the atmos-
phere. The crowds huddled around each booth
trying their luck and deciding what to do next.
All this for a few pennies!
Witli spring here once again, it came time
lor the planning of the ,lunior-Senior Prom.
The Steering Committee was selected, and it
began to plan committees to take care of decora-
tions, refreshments, orchestra, and floor show.
The Prom date was set, changed and finally it
was planned for May 20. The actual work on
the Prom was not nearly as much work as it
was fun. but with the capable Steering Com-

Normandyas senior girls have many friends, some
of whom were acquaintances made in grade school
days. Wlieli asked to choose two or three for the
Senior Pals page. it was very difhcult for these girls.
Since Normandy has activities which suit almost
everyone's fancy. we have tried to picture the girls
doing what they like best. Organizations such as
Orchesis and Wi'itei's, Club plus sports as golf.
hockey, basketball. and swimming offer wonderful
outlets to the regular curriculum. These activities
also helped to cultivate new friends and keep old
ones. They weren't all fun. although that was the
main idea. With such variety, how could any girl
have helped but enjoy Normandy's senior life?

The hoys at Normandy, too, have made many
friends and through the extensive hoys' sports pro-
gram. these senior fellas had just as much fun in
school as off campus. Many of them wouldn't admit
this and said that the girls were sentimental. hut it
was evident near the end of the second semester that
they would miss old N. l'l. S. as much as any one.
The fellas football, hasketlmall. and hasehall games
displayed their understanding of teamwork: all en-
joyed playing together no matter what the outcome.
Their numerous Mstagi' parties also strengthenecl the

As Spring approached the Orchesis and
Mrs. Schnieder sat down to decide on what
to do for the 1950 May Fete. Suddenly
someone said, L'Let's do a fantasyf, Every-
one agreed immediately and tried to re-
member all of the fairy tales that he had
heard as a small child. When the new Walt
Disney picture "Cinderellaw was mentioned,
there was no further discussion. Orchesis
would do a modern dance version of
This decision was much easier made
than carried through. First, tryouts were
held, and three Cinderellas were chosen.
They were Ruth Wylie, Pat Creve and Sally
Dillard. The step-mother, Molly Price, went
to work to change her usually smiling face
to an expression of cruelty. Dot Primeau
and Lois Stege, the step-sisters, also prac-
ticed harsh expressions. Marcella Wilker-
son, as the prince, began to practice on
dances that were not only suitable for woo-
ing the beautiful Cinderella but also for
rejecting all other maidens of the kingdom.
The six little mice needed work in both
dancing and dramatics, for they provided
the comedy of the production. They were
Peg Schenigman as ,laq-Jaq, Peggy Peet as
Suzy and Judy Harrington as Gus-Gus.
Dottie Hopkins, Shirley Olive and Carolyn
Foster aided the other three in their work
King, Marilyn Bierman, with ,lo Rosser
as his queen, practiced to create a character
of a strict disciplinarian to frighten the
arrogant royal duke, Carol Voss. Fairy
god-mother, Marlene Smith, had many
hours of work, too. Her task was to change
the pumpkin, mice and cat into a coach,
horses and coachman fPat Erbel. This
took very clever co-operation of all of the
other dancers. Six taller girls were chosen
to be the horses. Their costumes of pink
satin with silver trimmed reins and har-
nesses made them a very pretty sight to
behold. These six were Catherine Mattingly,
Dolores Simon, Connie Borchelt, Norma
Louks, Betty Celven and June Korte.
Please may I go?
I order you, my royal duke, to hold CL royal ball.

Ma Fete Is Success
The fairy god-nzolher appeared with all of her 'magic fairies.
Here comes the key-key.
They lived happily ever after!
The story opened in Cinderella's little
kingdom far away. Cinderella was a mis-
treated, overworked, but beautiful young
girl. Her stepmother and stepsisters, de-
mands were portrayed in modern dance
movement to the 'iWork Songf' The mice
then appeared on the scene and saw Cinder-
ella's dreams before them as she danced to
'LA Dream ls a Wish Your Heart Makesf'
The King, Queen and Duke suddenly ap-
peared, and the King demanded that there
be a royal ball in order to interest the Prince
in one of the maidens of the kingdom. The
arrogant Duke left the palace, and the procla-
mation telling of the ball was delivered to
When Cinderella said she would like to
go to the ball, her. stepmother and sisters
laughed at her. Finally they said that she
might go if she finished her work. Appear-
ing again, the mice danced to the 4'Work
Songf' They tried to do some of Cinderellais
work for her, but they were frightened away
by the cat, Lucifer. After the stepmother and
stepsisters left for the ball, the pretty fairy
godmother appeared and sent Cinderella,
changed into a smiling princess, after them.
The Prince, rejecting one maiden after
another, saw Cinderella and joined her in
the dance, MSO This ls Lovef, The lost slip-
per Was tried on every young girlg finally
Cinderella, after the mice let her out of the
trunk in which she had been locked, tried
it on. Since it Ht, the Wedding was planned.
The wedding scene was next, and it formed
the finale. All dancers joined in the gaiety
as they danced to the 4'Weddi1ig Marchfg
The music for Normandy's production
was taken from the musical score of the pic-
ture. All forty-four of the girls in Orchesis
went to see the movie before completing
their modern dance version.
This production was truly lovely and one
of the most enjoyable May Fetes ever given

Early fumbles and two large penalties set Nor-
mandy hack in the whole and set up liitenourjs lone
touchdown. The Huskies, touchdown came in the
third quarter when a pass clicked perfectly. The try
for the extra point was good, but an oifside penalty
nullified the first attempt. The second kick was blocked.
Going into the fourth and final quarter the score was
6-6. Neither team could make any real threat, al-
though Ritenour connected with another pass and
scored, hut it was called hack as the Huskies were
offside. Normandy in the closing minutes made a gal-
lant drive only to have the door closed in their face
by the ending of the game.
KIRKVVOOD 0, NORMANDY 13
Led by Captain Don Haynes who accounted for
both touchdowns, the Vikings scored early to whip
a favored Kirkwood team on the Pioneers, field.
The Vikings soon showed that they were on the
way to their first victory of the season by scoring
midway in the lirst period on a three-yard plunge
by Haynes. The try for the extra point fell short.
ln thc second quarter Dan Hamm intercepted a
Kirkwood pass at mid-field and ran it back to the
ten-yard line. Then Normandy was penalized fifteen
yards for holding, and on the next play the Vikings
were again penalized for holding. The hall was on
the 40-yard line with ugoal to gofl Dan Hamm see-
ing Don Haynes open downfield, connected with a
touchdown pass making up for the ground lost on
penalties. Hlflaliliif' Lorenz converted for the extra
point making the score 13-O as the half ended.
ln the third quarter Kirkwood came back lighting,
driving twice to Normandyis two-yard line and once
to the ten, hut time after time an inspired Viking
line with its hack to the goal line heat hack Kirk-
woodjs bid for a touchdown. Finally Normandy moved
up the field out of danger and played Kirkwood to a
standstill until the game ended.
U. CITY 7, NORMANDY 0
The Vikings fell victim to an old jinx when the
University City indians eked out a 7-0 victory. Witli
Normandy winning only twice in their long series,
it seems that U. City once again had the lndian sign
on the Viking eleven.
Lady Luck handed the lndians the play which led
to the downfall of the Vikings. ln the first quarter
she smiled on U. City when their left end lilocked a
pass, which fell into the outstretched arms of their

Only once did Normandy threaten when a long
drive late in the fourth quarter took the ball down to
the U. City five-yard line. But Normandy lost the ball
when they failed to make a yard o11 the fourth down.
U. City then took over and held the ball until the
final whistle ended the game and the Vikingls hopes.
BRENTWOOD 0, NORMANDY 21
Being rained out of their game Friday night, the
Vikings came back the following Monday night, rack-
ing up their biggest score.
The Bed and Green began their drive for the end
zone midway in the first period with a clicking ground
attack. A plunge through center by Captain Don
Haynes for five yards climaxed the long drive and
Lorenz, kick made it 7-0.
Losing the ball to Brentwood after having it deep
in the Eagles' territory, Normandy sat back with its
lead. With Brentwood using its double wing attack
to good advantage it moved closer and closer toward
the Viking goal line, but the ending of the half stayed
off a touchdown.
The third quarter was played without either team
gaining much ground, but in the early minutes of the
fourth quarter Don Ceissow skirted his left end for
twenty yards to add another touchdown, and Lorenz
made good his second conversion. A few minutes
later Bob Crawford caught a twenty-yard pass and
raced to the twelve-yard line. Ceissow, on the same
play he had scored on before, carried the ball over
again. Lorenz converted making the score 21-O. With
Brentwood being unable to score, the Vikings went
on to an easy victory.

The Bed and Green were out to avenge last year's
defeat, but soon found that it was not their night as
they discovered themselves handing the game away.
Normandy received the kickoff but went into punt
formation on fourth down. A had pass from center
sailed over Dan Hamm's head and before the Vikings
realized what happened it was Belleville's ball on
Normandyls fifteen-yard line. After holding for three
downs Belleville crossed the goal line and converted.

A Viking pass was intercepted and carried to the

when a long pass from Hamm to Dave Smith took
the ball to the one-yard line. The following play Dave
plunged off tackle to score. A few minutes later Jim
Kennedy scored, ending a drive against time. But it
was too late, for time had run out, and the Vikings
found themselves on the short end of the score.
WEBSTEII 6, NORMANDY 0
With a chance to stay in the running for the Sub-
urban League Title, the Vikings lost as they were
unable to start their attack.
Wel'Jster was on the move from the opening kick-
off but never could quite keep up their drives as the
Vikings stopped one drive after another. Then in the
third period a Normandy punt was returned deep
into Viking territory. It seemed all the Red and
Green had to do was stop the Statesmen again. But
on the next play Hutchinson broke away for the re-
maining yardage to scoreg however, the attempted
conversion was wide.
Normandy was unable to start a long march, and
time after time lost the ball on downs or punts as it
was a game Normandy wasn't to win. Thus ended the
game in which fate took a hand against Normandy.

VVELLSTON 12, NORMANDY 6
It was a sad gloomy Thanksgiving for the Vikings
as they went down to defeat in a bitterly fought battle.
Being only the third defeat in the long rivalry, the
team was hurt in losing the Little Brown Jug.
Normandy, winning the toss, elected to receive.
From the kickoff it hegan a march up the field. How-
ever, when it seemed as if Normandy were going to
score from Wellsttuills lour-yard line, a fumble ruined
the chance for an early touchdown. Another touch-
down was staved oil by Wellston as the hall ended.
Although Normandy had not scored in the first half,
it had heen the hetter team. Suddenly in the third
quarter the Trojans came to lifeg their halfback
broke loose for a touchdown. Minutes later, before
Normandy had recovered from the shock of the iirst
touchdown, Wellston had scored again. The Vikings
were becoming desperate now for they knew they
must score to get hack in the game. However, it
seemed that everything they did was wrong as one
pass after another was intercepted. Finally on the
