We of the 1950 Saga Staff shall unfold to you a panorama of Hve acts entitled 'LNormandy in the Spotiightf, Our first two acts portray the manner in which we met Normandy and grew up in it. The remaining acts depict the organizations, sports, and activities in which we participated. Each student, along with a capable staif of directors and mentors, may deservedly take a how in the spotlight. LIGHT ,ACTIO Yes, many have lent generously of time and effort so that the '4W'estern Hilltopi' may truly he resplendent in light. The work behind the scenes, as Well as the finished product, is part of our collection of memories of the school year l949-l95O. All our past experi- ences will he guides to us in our future. Now, as the lights grow dim, 21 stark white beam pierces the darkness. Bril- liantly illuminating, the finger of light focuses on Normandy in the mid- century. 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. tv Superintende t I n o Schools Normandy Consolidated School District As we stood at the turn of the century, it seemed as wise to look back over the years as it seemed profitable to look ahead F l . or ec u- cation to progress there was need for will' mg and able administratorsg and most assur- edly an attentiveness to The Watchword throu h tl the needs of youth. g ie years was 'Tor- wardll'-forward to new goals, new growth, ne ' ' W prestige. Normandy has indeed been fortunate in having such sincere administrators as the Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Ward E. Bar ' nes, and the Asslstant Superintendent, Mr. Her C ' man . Bleckschmidt. These men continually Worked to maintain the hi lm f g standards of our school. Normandy students were insured the best school facilities.

However, it covered not only the goals of the educational program but suggestions as to the elements needed to attain these goals. These elements consisted of: an active, alert communityg a professionally trained staff capable of recognizing the needs of indi- vidualsg and cooperation between th e com- munity and the school staff. 4 1'-"' Assistant Superintendent of Schools New Philosoph 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. Assistant Principal, Normandy Hiqh School Guidance Director, Normandy High School Junior Principals 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 ,Yi Assistant Principal, Normandy Iunior High School Assist Students Pcxqe Ten .aqnlf , A Principal, Normandy Iunior High School 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 be indebted. upcrfvisors Work For Better Schools l TOP ROW: Hueser, Burner, Ritchie. BOTTOM ROW: Me-rz, This-le, Wiqhtman. 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.

Q SY Assistants Make Thin s Hum 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- fortable classrooms.

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 with September. Letls get acquainted with the Seventh Graders of Nor- mandy! 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 School. Page Twenty-Two 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. Page Twenty-Three BACK ROW: Lange, Lajeu- ness, Lueck, Wichman, Mc- Clure, Wunderlich, Kintz.

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 cooking.

The future honieniakers took cook- ing, which appeared to be the most liked elective of the girls. They learned to plan well-balanced meals and other essentials of cooking.

Extra- urricular 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 successful. Page Twenty-Eight 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. Page Twenty-Nine BACK ROW: Hoffman, Huber, Garner, Foote, Gonsmcm, Fisher, Blount, Gray, Davis, Hale.

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. Page Thirty 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- ciation.

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. 6' x i Y mr. -, mm-11 f -iriwms 1. 1 - 1 BACK ROW: Ennert, Guion, Thorpe, Marshall, Ward, Boes- ter, Iohnson, Geise.

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 ophomores Return 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 any course. ientary tracts of frogs and proj- y were topics of discussion. Lan- ey cou d master P599 Thirty-Four 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. .els they make CL dress, amateur scam- .9t1'cs.vex learn fzlvzrlcmcnfals of sewing.

Portraying events of the Hfar of 1812 are 'ntembers of an Ainewcrm history Class. Juniors Assume 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. Page Thirty-Six ew Responsibilities 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.

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. Page Thirty-Eight 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.

These are the students who brought to a close in June their years of study and work, as well as fun and enter- tainment. As they stood on the threshold of graduation, they looked back o'er the long road they had traveled for six years. Wlio could forget the excitement that ahounded in him the first day at Normandy or the thrill of witnessing his first hig athletic game?

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.

Golden Torch 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 of merit.

Page SixtyfFour 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 Stamstad. These officers look in the files for possible future members.

Improvements and hard work again made this year7s Saga anoth CI' SUCCESS. To gain further knowledge about other top yearbooks, the Saga stall gave up their Thanksgiving holidays and went to Chicago to attend the N.S.P.A. convention. They also promoted the Backward Dance which pro- vided a different atmosphere from that of an ordinary one. At another of their dances, The Sweetheartls Dance, Barbara Read and Pete Smith were chosen nCampus Cupids of '50.,, The crowning event of the year was the coronation of the Saga Queen and King of Love and Beauty.

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. THIRD ROW: Davis, Oliver, Shipherd, Sounders, Ge-lven, Anders, Hundley.

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. Page Sixty-Eight 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 of it. 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. , See my Christmas p1'esent.' THIRD ROW: Hershtield, Price, Godfrey, Saunders, Lotz, Edwards, Fisher.

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 Tri-Yfs. iv 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. FOURTH ROW: Kuriiz, Bohley, Edwards, lanes, Shipherd, Ellis.

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, Missouri. The spirit of Oi1.1' is forever with Ili-Y. Page Seventy-Two 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. i 3 1 ,E ii , Z r r Y S 5 i 1 Praise ye the Lord!

Page Seventyffhree 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 own problems.

Page Seventy-Four 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 at Normandy. 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. FOURTH ROW: Haynes, Lorenz, Guariqlia, Slattery.

Page Seventy-Five 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. strc these the' leaders of fomorroiv? This is the way we keep our health. Page Seventy-Six 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- justed the ume over PI'Ogl'3ll1S, in perfect tone according to an individual's vol- the microphone. Besides assisting at they repaired and kept their equipment working order. Don't fog the pictures. These are the men behind the scenes. Testing one, two, three, four. Page Seventy-Seven 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 other organizations. 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 prizes. 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 comes gems. Our microscopes are trained on future improvement. Can there be a greater honor? Page Seventy-Eight 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- ture artist. 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. We judge the future by knowing the past. Promoters of modern art are these cre- ative youths. We can prove what we say.

Page Eighty Senior rchestra 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 Department accompanied the Senior English classes in a dramatic presentation of Christmas in Old England. Christmas forgotten, five All-State Orchestra repre- sentatives started out on icy roads to Joplin. Linda Hardy, Carol Vonckx, Karen Kuehner, Bob Edwards, Provides En 'o ment and Dean Skelton still tell ol their experiences at the meeting. For the Valentine Day Concert, Senior Ann Bran- nan was soloist with the orchestra. Playing 4'Deep Purplef she received many well-deserved compli- ments ol her interpretation and performance. An 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. BACK ROW: Merriman, G.

Almost immediately after school opened, the band began practicing for the first of many coming football games. Perfecting such melodies as wfhe National Emblemw and wfhe Black Jack March" and by using theVNational An- them and the Alma Mater over and over, they pre- 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, Club meeting was on the calendar also. After the final football game with Wellston, away Went the marching equipment and the Concert Band was in full swing. The fall concert was first on the agenda with the Band and the Orchestra forming the musical enter- Paqe Eighty-Two :it The Bandg' tainment. After this outstanding performance, every- one eagerly looked forward to the next concert. The next major concert was the Winter Concert, in which such songs as: HlVlemories of Stephen Fosterfi HCape Cod Capersw and 'GSongs by Jerome Kerni' filled the Normandy Gymnasium. During the spring the Senior Band took part in the annual Music Festival at Webster Groves and played for the fifth consecutive year at the Creve Coeur Lake lVlemorial Day Service, sponsored by the American Legion.

Junior Urchestra ehearses Jtmzior Strings gain perfection fm' the County Music Fcstiral, 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. Page EiqhtyfFour 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- hlended tone. 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 voices. 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. Page Eighty-Six From the regular Mixed Chorus. Director David Thorton picked the most zealous singers. These vocalists became the Special Mixed Chorusg a few representatives from each section-soprano. alto. tenor and bass. Chosen for adaptability to a musical score. these singers participated in many extracurricular activ- ities. Their services were much in request. Taking time from after-school hours this group practiced on alternate evenings or after regular Mixed Chorus practice. During the few weeks pre- ceding a special performance, diligent practice was observed in order to present the polished presenta- tion synonymous with Normandyis Special Mixed Chorus. During the year, several of these outside perform- ances have been given. Taking time from school to give these, the Chorus was a credit to its director and its school. The Chorus did several specialty numbers in the Music Association's Christmas performance. The most impressive of these was "Carol of the Bellsii C'ho1'iste1'S choose robes for Music Association U07l't'B'l"f. . when the choir stood in the spotlight. - j !!

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 enthusiasts, hut they turned out well rounded stu- dents, ones who knew the joy of winning as well as the values of defeat. Participants of the various sports hecame ac- quainted with students from other schools. As the students visited the schools in the city and county, new friendships were made and new ideas were gathered. The student hody of Normandy as well as parents and friends in the community proved to he loyal fans and turned out to cheer their teams on the vice- tory Whether at home or away. Carrying the red and green hanner into hattle, the Vikings of 1950 fought valiantly and hrought trophies home to the iiW8Sl61'Il Hilltop."

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- mandy. 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 fTurn to page 134, pleosel Varsity i pens Season Coach Sl1.ipImrfZ gil-rw last minute ivzstrizefiovis.

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 Page Ninety-Four 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 once again turned the trick and downed the Vikings Qlczttery Otey Hamm Darnell D. Gucriqlicx Haynes Will it be another thriller? by that same margin of one point. 52-51. Normandy ended its season with a very respectable 18-8 record.

With the shuffling of the five in almost every game, the fact was evident that there were many outstanding players hut no individual stars. Coach Van Ronzelen hoped to find a combina- tion that could play hoth defense and offense effec- tively. Proving to have the scoring touch that this team needed was Johnny Lewis who paced the team with one hundred and five points. Among the freshmen who shaped themselves into the ways of Varsity Coach Mike Riegert were Richard Otey and Harold Beckmann. Southwest . . . .... Normandy Lutheran . . ....

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 began. 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 Page One Hundred Pla Ball saw the Vikings trip Kirkwood. 2-1, at Kirkwood in a dramatic and hotly-contested game. Tommy Butz, who pitched an excellent game, was aided by Augie Abendscheinis long two-run triple in the sixth inning. Greatly bolstered by their first win, the rejuvenated Vikings confidently played host to Webster and de- feated thcm. Although the contest was marred by errors, the pitching of co-captain Wayne Saindon stood out. As this Saga goes to press, the Vikings have played six league games, winning two of them and dropping four. Augie Ahendschein and John Vitale have been the Whig gunsl' in the hitting department, and Larry Ulrich and Tommy Butz led the hurling department.

The Viking Cindermen had placed seventh in the State lndoor at Missouri University and fourth in the Maplewood Relays. Although only a little less than half of the season remained, the Vikings had showed only mild success in all depart- ments. , Now letfs meet the men who performed for you, the guys with the spirit of friendly competition fired State cliampion. Ecltrarflt toes the Zine. 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 air. 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- versity City lnvitational Record, he also took first in the shotput at the Indoor State this year. Johnson clears nine feet with ease. Page One Hundred Two The swift, yet graceful thinclads who skim nimbly over the hurdles included Nile Jamison and Dave Smith who placed Fifth at State Indoor in the high hurdles. To them, precision form was a must, the man who tripped over the hurdle realized this when he began digging cinders out of his Hesh. The real work-horses of the team were the distance men: Elton Jackson, Fred Mason, Herb Vogler, Cap- tain Pete Smith, and Kent Smith who ploughed the 880-yard dash tthe half-male I and the mile run. They pounded away, around and around the monotonous track with a steady pace until 'their muscles ached, their joints creaked, and their heads throbbed. They broke the tape with a glassy stare in their eyes and fell prost1'ate over the finish line. To participate in one of these events required more endurance. energy, and perseverance than was required for any other sport.

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.

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 I iipwarcl as ri basket 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.

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 victorious.

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 basketball. 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. ,At quiet tenseness lies over all as a bully ix in process.

Page One Hundred Nine wimmin is Fun 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 girls. 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. Kick! Kick! Strong kicking makes 1'l1.ythin.ic swimming. Fimdrzmentals' accomplished, these girls start formations.

Page One Hundred Ten 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. Beginning flfzncers train for Orchesis.

Page One Hundred Eleven UHO0L LIFE 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. The photographers were always on the spot, and every action was recorded and is shown in this act as a grand Hnale of HNormandy in the Spotlightf, A , ,X Lu -:- ,f,5f.,vyM,MgT 132559 ' ' H 2 iy Li e Is Renewed 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 hurry to their classes. Yes, swimming pools, vacations, summer romances and lazy days were to he forgotten as we settled down to our books and began the new year. Our first assembly of the year was, as usual. the Activity Assembly. The Dramatics Depart- ment, Courier Staff, Saga Staff. cheer leaders and football team put forth their comlmined efforts and produced a riotous program that was loads of fun for all, however, for the first time in Nor1nandy's history we failed to make our goal. The foothall season started off with a perfect night for the game. The crowds cheered ex- citedly, the popcorn man worked feverishly and the team pushed forward to a tie of 6-6 with the Ritenour Huskies. This outcome was an unexpected one, and the team and thc crowd boasted of the score to all of their friends. Normandy's new cheerleaders felt it was time to show the team their great support and a pep rally was organized. Beginning at the high school, a procession of about sixty cars, led hy the hand, paraded throughout the district. stop- ping at Mr. Thiele's and lVIr. Barnesf homes before ending the parade hack at school again. The "peppers" then piled from their cars and gathered around a huge bonfire, where they sang and cheered while football captain. Don Haynes. threw on the fire a dummy represent- ing their next opponent, University City. The jinx was not broken though, for we lost thc next afternoon in a hot, sweaty battle. The Courier hayride was a tremendous suc- K cess. After the ride, the rest of the evening was spent roasting wieners and dancing. This is our last, first look! Yo'u.'re lirealtriiig my heart. Ware just 7l7CltCh'l7If,. Team fight!! Page One Hundred Fourteen ocial Li e Thrives If you saw the girls chasing the fellows around the campus in the first part of Novem- ber, you just took it for granted that these 'ihard-to-getw boys were uleeryw of the Sagais annual Backwards Dance. The big gym was decorated with a huge Ltil Abner and most of the residents of Lower Slobbovia, literally up to their noses in snow. when the girls escorted the fellows in that night. After hanging candy corsages on them, the girls assumed full re- sponsibility and some even ugot them in early" -some old Normandy by-words. Ed Wilsoii was introduced during the floor show, and after giving all a demonstration of his clever chatter, he crowned Dan Hamm the L'il Abner of 1949 and presented him with a giant bouquet of candy. The all-school play was presented after we returned from our Thanksgiving vacations. The leading roles were played by Sally Dillard and Gordon Cimple. The play concerned two teen-agers in typical teen-age situations. Their director, Miss Colleen Tvilkinson. did a fine job, for every audience was well pleased and very amused with each performance. Christmas approached once again. and the gym was turned into a "Wintei' W0lldClAlH!1Cli7 as the couples swirled onto the dance floor for the annual Christmas Dance sponsored by the P. T. A. Mr. Blitz, as Santa Claus. appeared in costume and threw souvenirs to the expectant crowd. Dreams of holidays, parties. gifts, and Christmas trccs sparkled in cveryone's eyes and all seemed to have a Wonderful time. Just before we left for our Christmas vaca- tion. however, the English Department, Or- chestra, Mixed Chorus, and Orchcsis joined together to bring the school the Christmas play entitled. 'Sing Nowellfl The setting was in an English manor. and the cast was dressed in Medieval costumes. With jesters adding life and the mothers a serious note, the play was received with great praise. It was the largest production Normandy had ever attempted. I crown thee King of Ilogprzlrlz S0 this 'is love! We'1'e all kids at Cllristmas. Let's rIi11e English style.

The Pace uickens The Town Meeting Assembly, new this year at Normandy, was received very enthusiastically by allg and through its initiation, Normandy staged a score- board night with fun for everyone and secured funds for a new scoreboard. Representatives from all major colleges gathered in the gym to enable all juniors and seniors to obtain information concerning colleges of their choice. This very important decision made a lot of us start think- ing about our futures. Check your shoes at the door and come on inl That was exactly what happened at the Student Couneilas Sock Dance.

The Art Society worked 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- round to the hands of the clown decoration on the dance floor. Adding to the circus atmosphere even more were the girls' for- mals of every color in the rainbow. The crowning of the queen, Laura Holmes, by two of St. Louis' outstanding artists climaxed the evening. Chosen from among ten candidates for her beauty and poise, Laura truly looked queenly in a beautiful melon-colored formal trimmed with black lace. Yes, the word 4'Carousel7' still brings wonderful memories to the mind of many couples. The Sagals second annual dance, the Sweetheartls Dance, was held on February 18. As usual, we all cast our votes upon ar- riving but waited in suspense until the floor show before discovering the identity of the "Campus Cupid" and 4'Sweetheart." The Hgymn was decorated with a huge heart on which was painted a bashful beaux and a shy young maiden, a picture in direct contrast to the one created for the Sagais Backward Dance. Smaller hearts, hung around the sides, made it a very lovely set- ting indeed! The spring's latest print dresses made the dance floor itself attractive, but soon it was cleared for the Hoow show. The boys' quartet gave us their exciting inter- pretation of the 'LRiff Songf, l .J . 4.115 4 Two are 'made happy. "Our hearts are young cmd gay!"

Barbara Read and Pete Smith were crowned Valentine queen and king. Bar- barais pretty blonde hair and Pete's friendly smile truly won the hearts of everyone. The dance was a tremendous success, and the Sweethearts left the ubig gymn with the memories of hearts and valentines in their minds. Just exactly a month after the Valentine Dance, on March 13. the Courier presented its St. Patis Dance. Since, as always, the queen was determined by the amount of penny votes sold, from about the hrst day of March until the dance, the rush was on. Candidates were chosen by various char- tered school organizations, and it seemed as if everyone were selling votes for someone! i'Buy a voten was the by-word, and many young lrishmen and colleens almost came to blows over their choice for queen. Finally the dance arrived, and the Cour- ieris transformation of the L'gym,'7 too, was thrilling. The shamrock was the main theme. and green carnations were sold at the door. Voting booths were standing at one end of the dance floor, and little people kept pulling at your coat-tails all evening longg they were asking you to buy votes for the Junior High candidate. The floor was clearedg the floor show pro- ceeded. It even included an Irish jig per- formed by the Courier editors. After identifying Lflennyw as a goat, 'Ga good kidj' a Courier editor led her on to the floor. Then the exciting announcement was made. Miss Donna Harris was chosen St. Patis Queen. Yes, the Junior High School had done it againg they had elected their representative as queen. Everyone did have a wonderful time, and the Courier's bank account was once again replenished in their very original way. Page One Hundred Nineteen tudents Work Once again the inevitable rookie week ar- rived. For many days preceding this week, the new Lettermen began to sJeak more res ect- zn l P fully to the "veterans" hoping that they would be a little lenient. Finally though, all the veteran lettermen received thick, varnished Jaddles and l 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 later evening broadcast. After the discussion. 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 amusing. 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. I'm a rookieffand hoax' Bruce Bar1'i1i,glon introduces. Charge!! Atmosphere created with 'root beer and 217 steels. Page One Hundred Twenty 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 suits. All of their efforts were displayed at a Style Show given in April for the Mothers' Club. Under the direction of Miss Cook and Mrs. Stoddard, the girls modeled some lovely creations. A tea followed as a project of M1's. Wooclis Home Economics class and was nice, too. The senior Tri-Y, sponsored by Mrs. Mary Cean Forgus, held a big penny circus on April 22. Fun for all was provided by the many and 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- mittee, the Prom was sure to be successful.

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.

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 4'Cinderella." 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 and fun. 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. Suzy, one of the lady mice, had Cl' izvmzderful idea Page One Hundred Twenty-Four 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 Cinderellais home. 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 at Normandy.

Varsity Football Continued from page 911 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 MOOG INDUSTRIES, Inc. congratulates Normandy High School Graduates If you need employment, we may have a job open for which you can qualify.

Recovering from his surprise he galloped fifty yards for the lone touchdown of the game. The conversion split the uprights, making the score 7-0. 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. Bi:1.Licv1i.L1: 26, NOHMANDY 15 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. Ciessow then fumbled the kickoff, and Belleville lTurn to page 140, pleusej General Insurance Wlniield 4770 John J.

A long Normandy drive was stopped on Belleville's four-yard line. When the Maroon punter stepped out of his own end zone, Normandy had two points for a safety. A Viking pass was intercepted and carried to the one-yard line, and another Belleville touchdown had been set up by Normandy. ln the closing minutes of the third quarter Belle- ville seored again. Normandy Hnally began to click 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. CLAYTON 27, NORMANDY 6 The Vikings were out to beat undefeated Clayton but soon were outclassed by the Suburban Cham- pions. The Vikings' spirit was lost early in first quarter when a punt was blocked and carried over for a Clayton touchdown. When it rains, it pours. Nor- mandy's troubles had only begung an end slipped behind the Normandy secondary unnoticed and scored without being touched. Clayton scored twice more before Normandy be- BUCHANAN MOTORS, Inc.

On Claytorfs one-yard line the Vikings had four chances to score, hut alter failing three times, it seemed they would lose the ball. Then on fourth dOVVI1 a spot pass to Bob Crawford saved a shutout against the Vikings as they finished out a lost game. 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.
