For Dreams and ambitions are quite the same
And empires rise at their magic name:
There is never a blessing we have today,
But somebody's dreaming has paced the way
Why! Out on the edges of endless space
God dreamed a dream for the human race.

Upon a Western hilltop
Enshrined in iorest green
The hoary halls ot Normandy
Rise lofty and serene.
We pledge anew our heart's devotion
And steadfast loyalty
And may thy spirit ever reign
Upon the hills oi Normandy.
ln generations passing
Thy sons and daughters fair
Shall pause beneath thy porta
And render homage there.

"Nothing happens unless first a dream."
Rising out of the mist and hue of a man's sub-
conscious thoughts is the first inkling of his dream
-a dream which will encompass his life and make
him a slave until its final consummation. Education
was once a dream in the mind of some man long
ago. Slowly, it has evolved until it has, at long
last, reached a high pinnacle of attainment.
Normandy fits into this pattern-another wave in
the sea of dreams. Perhaps this is the wave which
will lap on the shore of Great Discovery-Great
Ultimate Success-Great Men.
The faculty and administration of Normandy
l-ligh School are eminently aware that they may be
directly influencing the potential leaders of the next
generation. Each student, dreaming of his own
ambition, appreciates their concern and applies
himself to their demands.
Education has evolved from an intangible dream
to a veritable reality.

Dreams have been man's inspiration
down through the centuries, always
pushing him forward to the realization
of many new goals. Normandy, too,
has had its dreams. Through a sincere
and able administration, these dreams
have become realities.
Believing in the educational birth!
right of every child and the opportunity
for him to find his place as a useful
citizen, the administrative body con-
tinually worked to insure the best in
instruction and school facilities. These
administrators, Mr. Ward E. Barnes, the
Superintendent of Schools, and Mr.
Herman C. Bleckschmidt, the Assistant
Superintendent, have willingly worked
toward better education for each stu-
dent, and they have been most attenf
tive to the needs of youths of today.

This past year of progress and
achievement definitely showed that
without careful study and planning by
the administration, one of the finest
school systems in this part of the coun-
try could not have progressed.
is success was due in part to the
know-how and ability of the adminis-
tration in keeping the community alert
active, and interested in what was hap-
pening. They had to be able to recog-
nize and handle the needs of individ-
uals and to cope with each of these ac-
cording to his need as far
They have to be the best professionally
trained group obtainable to maintain a
balance of cooperation between the
community and the school staff. For
no achievement or progress could ever
be realized without unity of purpose
and a willingness to see it through.
Herman C. Bleckschmidt, M.A.
Assistant Superintendent of Schools
Mr. R. D. Shouse, the Principal of Normandy
Senior High School, Mr. C. E. Potter, the Assist-
ant Principal on a Special Assignment: and Mr.
Walter C. Bergman, the Acting Assistant Prin-
cipal, worked untiringly toward the betterment
ot Normandy. They assisted in the execution
ot numerous measures that helped to bring
about the adaptation ot a tar-reaching philoso-
phy to a thing ot reality. Lending a wise and
helping hand wherever it was needed won
them esteem and admiration of the faculty and
the entire student body ot Normandy.
Among the problems of this past year was
the readjustment that came about with the
change trom, or the separation ot, the Iunior
and Senior High Schools. With the problem
ot over-crowding removed, it was felt that more
time could be given to the individual needs of
each pupil. Many organizations helped in the
endeavor of developing a program oi educa-
tion that was suitable to the actual needs oi
One of these, namely the Student-Teacher
Planning Council, could not be praised enough.

The Board of Education, responsible for the
making of the general policy for the entire
Normandy district, have realized, in actuality,
the fruits of past careful planning. Efforts were
rewarded and a portion of their dreams were
realized with the opening and commendable
operation of the new Normandy lunior High
Many of these men have worked zealously
for a number of years, planning for the better-
ment of facilities and the adequate housing of
all children in safe, comfortable, and educa-
tionally qualified structures. Eventually this
long-range planning will give to Normandy one
of the finest school systems and will enable
it to offer a more complete program of both
mental and physical education to every stu-
dent in the district's schools.
This year marked a progressive step forward
for the Board, in so far as one of their plans
OI" QU8I"y0l'l8 af I'LOI"I'l'LCLl'l g
was concernedg that was the program for phys-
ical education throughout the district. Before
any definite action was taken, this particular
idea was given thoughtful attention and un-
tiring effort by each member of the Board.
Then the program was put to practical use and
their dreams and goals were successfully at-
The above mentioned plans were not the
only questions that they had to face. Many
other problems of various types arose and re-
quired the time and attention of every member.
As long as the planning for the expansion
and progress of the education of the Normandy
District is kept in such qualified hands, the
community can rest assured of the continued
success and advancement of its system. These
men have worked constantly with this aim in

to push ever forward to new worlds. So
the juniors have striven to attain new
qoals. Academically and socially they
excelled beyond all expectations.
This year opened new pathways to the
juniors: Chemistry, American History,
Saga, Courier, and higher mathematics.
By securing thirty-five names on a peti-

We leave a gift, bronze engraved, for future years
To see, to let them know we loved
These corridors, the tower bell, the happy hours.
What's more, We take a gift that's veiled by laughter,
And wrapped in a few tears.
We go with memories deep rooted in our hearts
Of happy times, and quiet voices in a classroom.
To those who stay here yet awhile, remember us.
Soon you will add your tears and smiles as you depart.

"I had a dream which was not all a dream."
Descending from above, each man's particular
vision drifts elusively about him until, hovering just
out of reach, Man grasps it and holds it triumphantly.
Once a vision is captured it may be compared
to a "bubble in a cage"--held in captivity, it is ad-
mired by all who see it.
Such a dream was the desire of all true Vikings
as they hoped for the much coveted State Basket-
Although the Basketball trophy was supreme in
the minds of all on "the Western hilltop", the "so-
called" minor sports excelled in their various en-
deavors. Both the swimming and Wrestling teams
received second place in State events, While the
golf team was first.
To those who aspire to a similar record the ath-
letes of this school year should prove an inspiration.

Displaying a crushing offense early

Smashing, slashing their way
through the Suburban League,
Normandy Tournament, and Web-
ster Tournament to pile up 26 vici-
tories against one defeat, the high-
tlying Vikings ot Normandy rolled
up a terrific 30-l season record.
Then overpowering all opposition
in the State Tournament they han-
dily took the coveted tirst-place
trophy at State. They ran up a
record-breaking string of 24 con-
secutive wins atter their only loss
to Beaumont, and although they
had some narrow squeaks, most
ot the victories were lopsided.
Coach Mike Riegert never had a
team ot which he could be
prouder. The boys fought for him
and the school with a determinae
tion and willingness s e l d o m
equalled and what's more, they
fought as a team. Ron Guariglia,
agile Viking center who is Prep
Player ot the Year, Most Valuable
Player, and a member of the All-
State team and three All-District
teams, was high scorer tor the
year, setting a new Normandy
record. Ron was devastating un-

der the basket, where he featured a beautiful hook
shot and some great faking. Twin brother Don
was the jumpfshot artist and chief rebounder of
the team. He continually amazed audiences with
shots from all angles and distances. The play'
maker and set-short artist was Bill Slattery, Nor-
mandy's smooth-Working, All-District, All-State
guard. "Rabbit" Lorenz often pulled the team out
of slurnps by sheer aggressiveness and timely
baskets, as did Dan Hamm, whose ability to steal
the ball and break up opponents' plays was un-
canny. When the chips were down, "Chuck"
Vogt or lohn Vitale were usually sent in to get
things rolling again. Good floor men and deadly
shots, "Chuck" and lohn more than once gave
that needed spark to the team.
With these capable players pulling as a team,
and Mike Riegert coaching them, the Normandy
Vikings finished their most successful season and
became the toast of the state. The big gilded
trophy will long rest in Normandy High as wit-
ness to this fact.

Although they got off to a slow start, Coach
Shipherd's varsity nine was expected to go tar
this year. They nipped Cleveland in the opening
contest and then dropped three straight league
matches in succession. Because the season
started late, the Saga went to press before the
season was completed. Although the team was
built mainly around senior lettermen, several
juniors and sophomores played starring roles.
Injuries again took heavy toll: Brauss, Hudson,
and Small were the early victims. Ctey looked
great on the mound, but the hitting in the early
games was almost nil. When Captain Abend-
schien, Vitale, Kammer, Eberhart, Vogt, Hitt,
Small, and Iohnson begin hitting, though, the Vik-
ings should oiter tough competition.

The Normandy swimmers finished the regular
season with a very good lO-3 record. Though co!
captain and heavy-duty man Bob Richter, out for
the season, was sorely missed, the other boys
on the well-rounded squad made each win a
team victory. Sophomore "Tony" Dobyns, otten
the hero, participated in many events, one oi them
always being the strength-sapping breast stroke.
Co-captain Staehle, Lamb, Douglass, Ziegentuss,
and Sigmund, all seniors, were important links in
the chain ot victories chalked up by Normandy.
Coach Wheatcrott, eyeing the future, had many
sophomores and juniors who excelled, ln the

gymnasium. In this climactic event the mat-
men proved that brains as well as brawn
are needed to win coveted honors. Though
many "star" grapplers were lost last year,
others as enthusiastic and as good took their
places. "Hap" Whitney, state "champ" last

Clarence Brown, colorful heavyweight, also

speed and cat-like agility, brought Normandy

The Normandy golf team had a tremen-
dous goal for which to strive this year. They
won the State High School Golf Tournament
last year and were hoping to retain their
first-place standing this year. They had their
work cut out for them, and as this Saga goes
to press they have done all that is possible.
They have won one match and have not lost
any. Coach Iohn Krablin had his ll-star
team back this year. Captain Earl Moeller,
National caddy champion Don Guariglia and
twin brother Ron, Iirn Douglass and Bob
Reynolds formed the backbone of the team.
These boys were all seniors, and we know
they were capable of repeating as cham-
pions. Mr. Krablin's only worries were in the
future, as good prospects were lacking.

Though the varsity track team had only a l-4
record as this Saga went to press, Coach Mike
Biegert, nevertheless, had reason to be proud oi
his athletes. They placed third at the Maplewood
relays, and a few boys qualified for the U. City
invitational finals. Captain Bob Eckardt, lim
Whitehead, and Bill Slattery were the dependable
point-getters for the Vikings in the senior division.
Bob consistently heaved the shot and discus for a
remarkable distance, while Bill recently set a new
Normandy high jump record, and lim had been
clocked at amazing speeds in the sprints. In the
junior division, weightmen Ellerbrook, Schneider,
and Hodges were especially impressive.
caiofaind infiioirecl feamo
Certainly we must attribute a part of the success
of the various Viking teams to the fight and spirit
of the captains. The leadership of these boys was,
therefore, a contributing factor to the high rating
of their teams.
Because he played the last few games with nu-
merous injuries, Don Giessow was an excellent
example for his team. Captains Bon and Don
Guariglia led their teams to the State Basketball
Championship. Teams led by Clarence Brown,
Bob Richter, Iohn Staehle, and Earl Moeller ranked
high in their respective State meets. As the Saga
went to press, "Augie" Abendshein and Bob Eck-
ardt were leading the baseball and track teams
Thus it can be said, "May their spirits ever
reign upon the hills of Normandy."

One of the cheeriest spots on the campus

this interest even when other activities beck-

Thus in the south gym the scene was set for
a dream, the time was set as almost any after-
noon, and the dreamers were there with all
their equipment: their bats and balls, their
stick and guards, their hope and their laugh-
ter, and even their little squabbles. These girls
made their dream of achievement a reality,
for, though they won no titles, they did achieve
grace, co-ordination, and skill--achievements
When crisp October bustled in, the hockey
season began. Enthusiasm bubbled in the play
of the girls who liked this rough game and did
not mind cold weather and a few snow flakes.
As the autumn progressed into November,
the practice became more serious, for now
preparation was being made for inter-school
contests. Finally, Mrs. Helen Dunbar an-
nounced the girls who would play on the class
teams. Each of the class teams played hard,
but the seniors with two victories had the best
record. Though the varsity hockey team faced
tough opposition, it had a good record.
Suddenly Christmas was over, and the bas-
ketballs were out in the gym. Now interest
shifted to a new kind of skill. No longer were
the rowdy tactics of hockey important! Each
girl must practice her finer basketball skills.
Along with the new skills, a new enthusiasm
was growing. It was more seriouseno more
panting and shouting, no more happy "coke"
parties. Somehow basketball seemed more
important for audiences cheered at the once
deserted sidelines. An important day came and
three class teams were again chosen. Looking
back we see that neither these girls nor the
varsity achieved an outstanding record.
ln February, the basketball spirit waned. A
new game brought new pep. Volleyball, with
its emphasis on jumping and twisting, was a
welcome change from the running and shooting
of basketball. The seniors were quite outstand-
ing with a 5-l record.

Games and practices were not the only
events connected with the girls' sports. On
February 3, girls from Clayton, Fairview, Kirk-
wood, and Bayless competed in Normandy's
gym on Sports Day. Acting the part of good
hostesses, our girls directed, greeted, and
served their guests. An assembly and outside
sports day were also planned.
At this time the practice for softball started.
lt was May. The myriad ot events and activi-
ties took a toll, and a smaller group appeared
tor these practices. Thus the school year came
to an end, and the girls turned their attention
to other sports away from school. Each of the
girls carried away her individual memories oi
the past sports year-if--memories of its victories
and deieatsf and all but the seniors looked
forward to another year equally full of thrills

Membership in the National Honor Society, the
highest scholastic achievement at Normandy, was
sought by many but attained by only a few.
To be eligible for this honor group, a student
had to earn points in scholarship, leadership, and
service, in addition to a character recommenda-
tion from the faculty. New members were intros
duced in an assembly held in their honor, May 7,

queen. During the Christmas holidays a pro-
gram for small children was given at Neighbor-
hood House. By the end of the year many civic
duties were performed.
The Eleventh Grade Tri-Y was eager to serve!
Helping to sponsor a war orphan and serving
at a Teachers' Banquet were their chief service
projects. The lce Breaker, their clever dance,
ably opened the social activities of the year.
Although the teachers lost, good fellowship was
promoted in the Tri-Y-Teacher's volleyball

On top of the list of the many worthwhile
projects performed by the Twelfth Grade Tri-Y
was the trip to St. Domenica's Italian Orphan-
age at Christmas time. Showing the Santa
Claus spirit, each girl chose one child and
brought hirn or her a gift. By donating a tree
and ice cream, the Kiwanis Club and Green
Lea helped make their party even more enjoy-
able. Besides making the children happy, they
had a good time themselves. Together with

A l,000-point "N" was the requirement for
all girls to be listed on the athletic Honor Roll.
Showing remarkable athletic ability, these
girls have met the high standards of the Viking-
ettes. They composed, therefore, the honor
group in girls' athletics. After obtaining 1,000
points the usual fun-filled, costumed initiation
was demanded by the veteran members.
The Letterman Club, a select group, was
limited to only the athletes who had earned at
least one letter in their respective sports. Their
outstanding initiation, "Rookie Week", was a
fun-filled Week of costumes and orders given
by superior lettermen. The unusual Ounce
Bounce was successfully directed by the Let-
termen and Mr. Morris Blitz, their sponsor.
To be chosen a member of the Orchesis was an
honor traditionally sought by every Normandy
girl in the modern dance classes. Ability alone
was not enough: she must possess willingness to
spend long hours in sessions oi extra practice.
Following customary procedure, the dancers
presented their Christmas program, and, of course,
the May Petefhighlight of the school year.
Besides these annual assemblies Orchesis pre-
sented several programs on television, partici-
pated in the inter-school assemblies, and accepted

A situation which would give
him a chance to learn a trade
and earn money while going to
school was the desire of stu-
dents belonging to Diversified
Occupations. One of the three
hours at school was spent in a
class in which he learned
about topics related to his job.
The remaining time he worked.
Under the supervision of Mr.
Hoetler the "Visual Aids" under-

were such a great aid in teach-

One ot the outstanding vocal music groups at
Normandy was the Mixed Chorus. Musical talent,
enthusiasm, and cooperation contributed to the
success enjoyed by these talented choristers.
These songsters appeared in their maroon robes
at the Music Association concerts, assemblies,
and special programs. Outstanding was their per-
formance at the Christmas program. The Spring
Concert and Spring Festival also were excepf
Sincerely interested in good musicianship, these
choristers worked earnestly to achieve just the

of the hearty audience response was attributed

With perfect harmony and professional tech-

talented voices to make up the Girls' Glee Club.
Mr. Kennett, in his first year at Normandy, had
the admiration of these ambitious girls for his
keen musicianship in directing and helping
them to achieve perfection. Appearances
throughout the year were successful.
Wherever they appeared the harmony of the
talented, neatly robed Boys' Glee Club was
Welcome. Directed by Mr. Thornton, they ob-
tained quality in interpretation, rhythm, in-
tonation and artistic effects. The long hours
spent in practice and their group cooperation
enabled them to achieve the professional tech-
nique for which they received much acclaim.

Overcoming the many perplexing difficulties
early in the year, the Senior Orchestra strove
to exceed its record of past years. lt was a sur-
prise to many to find the orchestra about one-
half its original size, but the old proverb read,
"Practice makes perfect," so this year it was
quality and not quantity.
Directed by Mr. L. W. Guenther, who con-
ducted the orchestra with fine musicianship
that drew an excellent group, it presented many
interesting, amusing, and enjoyable programs.
The spooks were abroad and the ghosts were
afloat at the first Normandy Music Association
concert. "Danse Macabre" was played by the
young musicians. Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh
Ride," a novelty piece, was enjoyed by all
when Christmas, cold wind, and snow blew
around the corner. Soloing at the Valentine
concert, senior Vivian Banta, accompanied by
the orchestra, played "Piano Concerto in A
Spring fever did not prevail this year be-
cause practicing for the spring festivals took a
lot of extra time.
Out came the old cello and bass cases as
the orchestra prepared to travel once again.
Although icy roads and snow almost cancelled
several ot their tours, every trip was a com-
plete success. On the sixth of lanuary, the
orchestra went to Columbia to accept an invi-
tation to take part in the M. E. N. C. Conven-
tion. Conducting the orchestra, Mr. W. Robin-
son praised the group highly on their good
balance, interest, and cooperation. Eureka,
Rolla, Ferguson, and Wellston were hosts to
the orchestra early in the Spring season. Tour-
ing was fun and very good experience for the
Ralph Steele, outstanding violinist, was
chosen as the most valuable member ot this
group for the '50-'Sl season. Ralph was concert-
master, a member of All-County Orchestra, and
a soloist at the Young Artists Concert. On sev-
eral occasions his talents were displayed while
playing solo parts with the orchestra.
Talent, practice, and enthusiasm were the
factors that accounted for the excellence of the
Senior Orchestra this year.

Although it is universally unadrnitted, the male
population of Normandy receives just as much of
a thrill from the various events in the social cal-
endar. Even as the girls have their own activities
so do the boys. l..etterrnan's initiation, which is
confined to the successful athletes, is one of the
highlights of extra-curricular calendar.
The multitude of dances for which Normandy is
so noted easily lends itself to an atmosphere of
gaiety. After school hours are filled to capacity by
students eager to participate in each new activity.
Assuredly Normandy gives each student an oppor-
tunity to be touched with the glow of its social whirl.
