Making the staging of our production simpler and a greater pleasure, the administration and faculty of Nor mandy seldom received the praise due to them. Nevertheless they were always present, always prepared to help. The producing and directing of a production as lengthy and complex as this was no easy task: however, with their training and wisdom, the faculty was able to carry out their roles with very few mistakes. The goal of the teachers was not neces sarily to create "stars", but to create people who would be a credit to society. In the Words of Longfellow: "Build today, then strong and sure, With a firm and ample base, And, ascending and secure? t"' Shall tomorrow find its place." Thus we were led through the year by the producers and directors-the unheralded "stars" of The Drama of l952 45' jim or 'X 5.2 .xdcfnainbfraforfi , uid WARD E. BARNES, B.S., M.A. Superintendent of Schools Normandy Consolidated School District ln the past twenty-nine years Normandy has come a long way. ln 1923, the first year of its existence, the entire enrollment was only two hundred fifty-eight. There were no buses, the courses were limited, activities were few, and there was only one building. Although we have advanced far, we have not stopped in our endeavor to keep improving. lust as all other dramas must have an able producer, so must Normandy's Drama of l952. Mr. Ward E. Barnes, in his fifth year as producer of our drama, has done a successful job. As the Superintendent of Normandy Consolidated School District, he has constantly worked for the improvement of educa- tional conditions at Normandy. Realizing that there was a great need to keep the community interested in the events at school, he found he must have a purpose which the ad- ministration would maintain throughout the year. That purpose was to make Normandy a school which would prepare the students for the future. Page Eight .SCAOOK ' g Mr. lt. D. Shouse, Principal, was the fllfltfflfjl ot our Drama. His job was to inatntain the high standards ot Normandy. llu made sure that Normandy was meet- ing the needs ol its Youth, and that it was prrfparing them tor life. He knew that the :school could not help the student until the :student tirst helped himself. Through his knowledge and understanding, Mr. Shouse promoted a better relationship luwlvvoon students, teachers, and parents.

This took much of his time, because he knew that the individual was important. He helped all the students who were having trouble with their programs, and he advised them about taking subjects that would help them after graduation. With his helpful manner and under- standing ways, he won the friendship and admiration of each student. TOP ROW: Heuser, Barrier, Ritchie. BOT Thiele, Wiqhtmari.

Thousands of students have walked through its halls, and to each of them he has been a friend and an advisor. He has helped many students out of difficulties and given courage to many who had lost faith. For each he had o smile and a cheery greeting. Never was he too busy to give advice if it was sought. His kind, friendly manner has won the love of each student who has entered Normandy. To Mr. Green the Saga Staff of l952 respectfully dedicates this book. Page Scvente 6044! of Clwwacfem 6'The real object of the drama is the exhibition of the human character."-Macaulay. The cast-the heart of The Drama of 1952! And what a superb cast it was: every participant, Whether the star, the sup- porting actor, or the understudy, played his part to perfection. "A play is like a picture: the actors are the colors, and they must blend with one another if a perfect work is to be produced." Uoseph Ieffersonl. Through the cooperative efforts of our entire cast, our play, We believed, was a success. Starring in their final season on Normandy's stage were the Seniors, who enacted their roles with great enthusiasm until the final closing curtain. Indispensable to our production, however, were the Iuniors, as supporting actors, and the Sophornores, as understudies. While gaining the experience that they would need later on as stars, they added a great deal to the produc- tion of this year. Every person was important to the success of our play. Yes, the cast was surely the heart of The Drama of 1952. ca n or X59 CLASS OFFICERS Freeman Porter Mason Thacker eniord - nnefeen .ilurwlreal gin? - jwo FREEMAN, IAMES-"lim" was President of the Senior Class . . . was a member of the Hi-Y, Student Council, Mixed Chorus, and the Letter- men's Club . . . was the co-captain ot the foot- ball team, best all-around boy in the Senior Class and one of the five most popular boys in the Senior Class . . . plans to attend Iames Mil- liken College.

Holding positions of leadership on the campus throughout the year, they carried out their roles with skill. Although it took them a few weeks at the be- ginning of the year to become accustomed to being Seniors, they adjusted rapidly and soon fully assumed the role which they had looked forward to for many years. And what an active role it was! Seniors led such organizations as: Student Council, Courier, Saga, Quill and Scroll, and Honor Society. Their experience was a great help in other activities: sports, dra- matics and speech, music and art, classes, and social affairs. The well-rounded Seniors par- ticipated in several of these activities. As the end of the school year came more and more into view, the "stars" centered their thoughts on the future: college, work, or the armed forces. Those who hoped to attend col- lege were assisted in their planning by "Col- lege Night" and by their counselors. Talk of scholarships was in the air. Those who knew they would work or go into the armed forces after graduation also had plans to make. In all Senior chats the inevitable subject of "grad- uation- -what then?" was brought into the dis- cussion. Few of the "stars" actually realized what it would be like at that final closing curtain until the last few months of school approached. The Saga coronation, the Prom, the May Fefe-these the Seniors participated in for the last time. Class Day, Baccalaureate Service, Graduation, and then it was over: the curtains closed on the Drama of 1952. Only time would tell how fruit- ful it was.

This, indeed, has been proved by the Iunior Class. ln reality the Iuniors were the actors and actresses who spent their time studying subjects that might decide what parts they were to play all the rest of their lives. By ex- celling in scholarship, citizenship, and activi- ties, the Eleventh Graders proved that no part in this great drama was beyond their reach. Led by such capable officers as: Mary Foote, president, Don Klingler, vice president, Marilyn Small, secretary: and Martha Douglass, treas- urer, the Eleventh Grade moved quickly to the top as leading characters of the production. These officers did a splendid job of directing their class in every Way. As they looked forward to their Senior year, Page Forty Klingler Douglass uniorri Mun the Iuniors quickly realized the great responsi- bilities that would be placed on their shoulders. They worked hard to meet this challenge so they would be ready to assume the duties of leadership next year. The first act opened with the players enact- ing their roles in the classroom. As they re- turned for their second year at Normandy, the Iuniors found many new and different subjects were offered. One of the most popular classes was chem- istry. The study of atomic Weights and meas- ures and classroom experiments helped to make this class very interesting for all who enrolled. For those who enjoyed journalism there were the publication and the journalism classes.

For juniors planning to be architects there were the elective classes of geometry, algebra, and mechanical drawing. juniors entering commercial fields after graduation enrolled in typing and shorthand classes. Bookkeeping and office machines were also open to Eleventh Graders. Many students enjoyed the language classes. Nor- mandy offered four different languages: Spanish, French, Latin, and German. To further interest in this field many juniors joined the Language Club. English and American History were the only two sub- jects required. ln order to graduate they had to pass the Constitution test given in all American History classes. This class gave the juniors the opportunity to prepare for future roles as citizens. The scene of this act took place in any room.

Carola Utsch, Mary Foote, and lohna Glaze participated in all tour of the major sports: hockey, basketball, volleyball, and softball. The luniors were quick to enter the many extra- curricular activities. Such organizations as Hi-Y, Honor Society, and Tri-Y gained a large number of luniors. The clubs associated with classes were also popular. The Chemistry Club, Writers' Club, Art Society, and the Bowling Club all gained new members rapidly. Those who were accomplished musicians joined the band and orchestra which contributed much to the on- going oi our school. Many girls interested in dance be- came members oi the Orchesis. As the third and final act began, we found many luniors participating in all oi the school lite activities oi Normandy. When the spotlight focused upon the stage, we saw Don Klingler, Fred Bommarito, and Mary Ann Porzenski all playing leading roles in the all- school play, "Little Women."

Many luniors were to be seen waltzing around the floor at the dances. Planning the Iunior-Senior Prom was the biggest ree sponsibility they had. They proved their enthusiasm by working with the Steering Committee many long hours to produce one of the best proms ever given at Normandy. Climaxing the social season was the Sagas Corona- tion. lunior representatives in the Queens Court, Mary Foote, Nina Garofalo, Harry Ctautsche, and Don Klingler, made their way to the throne amid sparkle and much applause. As the curtain fell on the final act, the Iuniors looked back on the roles they had played and found that many fond memories and events had made this year one of the best they had ever known. Yes, the "Drama of l952" had been a truly wonderful play. Although next year, when they will be Seniors, the scenery will be changed, there will be a new setting for the produc- tion, and perhaps different actors in different roles, the Iuniors shall never forget their "Drama of l952" in which they were cast. CLASS OFFICERS Antonio Miller As the house lights dimmed, the curtains slowly parted. The "Drama of 1952" began. The wellchosen cast showed that they had worked diligently to perfect their parts. The Sophomores as understudies hoped to be able to take part in the various activities so that they might be the stars in a later production. Setting the pace for the other performers were the class officers: Paul Miller, presidentp Carol Leber, vice president: Anna Antonio, secretary: and Sue Thompson, treasurer, who contributed much to the success of the Sophomores' drama. Without their leadership many things would have been left undone. Being actors in the Normandy Senior High School was a new and thrilling experience for all. Exciting fields of discovery were opened to the Sophomores as they enrolled in their Leber Thompson QZLUC OITL 6115 l"el96ll'e elected classes. Only two classes were re- quired: English ll and World History. This gave the Tenth Graders an opportunity to choose the fields in which they were most interested. A very popular elective among the Sopho- mores was biology. They genuinely enjoyed learning about animal and vegetable life. Dis- secting fish and frogs opened another new field for them. Field trips to the zoo and class- room demonstrations helped to make this sub- ject even more interesting. Plane geometry seemed to be the most popu- lar mathematics course among the Sophornores. They learned theorems and propositions. Many found this course more difficult than they had anticipated, but hard work enabled them to soon achieve success. Home economics was chosen by many Page Forty-Six HANK HOW: Clmtcl--l, Stlwrlq, flmaky, tTln1::tun:1s-n, llfnlcinq, Um:-lf'lx, Mlllwr, Hozilrr.

In these classes, they learned to cook and to sew their own clothes. They learned the fundamentals of plan- ning ot balanced meal and to style many of their clothes. Other much enjoyed classes were foreign languages. Normandy offered the Tenth Graders their choice of three: Spanish, Latin, or French. Within a few weeks after school had started conversations were filled with such expressions as: "Habla Vd. Espanol?" or "Vent, Vidi, Vici." To make this study even more interesting many Sophomores joined the Language Club. A new atmosphere and a variety in the Sophomore program made the Tenth Graders work hard to succeed. Many ot them made names tor themselves in scholar- ship as well as citizenship and activity. Many Sopho- more names were placed on the Honor Roll, and lane Dachroeden and Don Allen were chosen Best Citizens ot their class by the Student Council. Page Forty-Seven Olglfefg gill QP5 Sports held much of their attention. Many Sophomore boys were to be found on the football team. Don Pol- kinghorne, Romer Hodges, and Iirn lohnston made the Varsity first string. The curtain rose and fell on the basketball season, but not without disclosing many promising young athletes. Iirn Heidbreder and Iirn Iohnston are to be counted among this group. Nfurlmzfx lmrrn of 7IH'llff't'f1l rluyx in lr story vlaxsex.

So many of those scenes throughout the year Wi11 remain always in our memory: the ciassrooms, the sports events, the assemb1ies, the dances. Many of the scenes required numerous hours of rehearsal, however, the high qual- ity of that scene was worth every minute of time spent on it. Emotions were mixed throughout the year as various scenes were enacted: tension at taking tests in the classrooms, excite- ments at the games, relaxation during assemb1ies. dreaminess at the dances.

Many of these boys were playing their Hop to it, men! first Varsity game. Hard work and scrimmage had preceded the season's play, but inexperi- ence haltered the team for the first half of the season as the team lost its first four games. The players made no excuses but continued to concentrate on victory. The Vikings' hard work and fighting spirit paid dividends as they romped to victory over Ferguson, 31-O. The Shipherdmen then played host to a highly rated Cleveland team and upset them in a hard- fought game, l2-6. Because they could not quite overpower Coach Shipherd's boys, Welo- ster too fell victim of the Normandy march. Although all previous victories had been proudly accepted, all attention and enthusiasm was centered on the Thanksgiving Day game with Wellston, This was the traditional game which decided who would possess the Little Brown lug throughout the following year. Page Fifty-Four .Awl l9,mm On a dreary, rainy day the two teams met. Despite the bad weather, a good number of spectators turned out to cheer their respective teams.

As is the custom, the Vikings played host in giving their Annual Chrismas Tournament. ln their first game, the Vikings of Coach Riegert lost to a slightly more experienced Clayton team, 46-41, ln the follow- ing game, the Normandy boys' energetic willingness to win found them romping over Central, 59-38.

Any team that has attained perfection had to spend a maximum amount ot time working and practicing. These champions proved to be an example of the dividends resulting from tour years ot such practice. Throughout their regular season these boys had compiled a very admirable record. Oi their thirteen meets, Normandy won eleven and lost the remaining two to Principia, the team that placed second to the Vikings at the State meet. The coach at these winners, lack Wilson, gave all the credit to the boys and their former coach, Dan Wheatcrott, and he expressed a deep pride in working with them. lt was, neverf theless, a proven tact that both Coach Wilsori and all his swimmers worked together as a team to achieve their outstanding goal.

Because of excellent s p rin g weather conditions, Coach Rieqert's boys were able to meet all opposition as had been scheduled up to the time the Saga went to press. ln Normandy's first dual meet, they were the victims of a superior East St. Louis team, losing by a score of 139 to 69. Retaliatina in their second dual meet, the Vikings qalloped away to vic- tory over Clayton, 187 V2 to 25V2. Captain Vogler strides toward the finish line. ll.I'l'l I9 311.0 The Vikings, after having had a taste of vic- tory, met a repeatedly competitive toe in C. B. C. Riegert's boys gave their best, which was necessary in order to slip past C. B. C., 108 to 105, in a see-saw battle. A visiting Kirkwood team surpassed the Normandy boys and ended their winning streak by downing the Vikings, 117 to 96. Other than dual meets, Normandy's Cinder- men attended the State Indoor Meet, Clayton Invitational Meet, and the Maplewood Relays. Ellerbrook was the only Viking to place in all three meets. Tearnmates Iamison, Boone, Smith, Edwards, and Iacobs also placed at the Clayton Invitational Meet. Of the team, Coach Riegert was pleased with the work of seniors Vogler and Ellerbrook.

With the addition of new matmen and with added experience of the old ones, the Vikings proved too much for all foes except Ritenour and Granite City in their regular scheduled season. At the State Wrestling Meet, the Normandy team proved stiff competition for all other at- tending teams. Anselmo, Benoist, Haynes, and Captain Whitney were the Normandy boys who walked away with State titles. lt was Whit- ney's fourth title in four tries at State competi- tion.

They developed a love for this sport that only the players themselves could explain, The class teams spent endless hours practicing through rain and sleet. All looked forward enthusiastically to an exciting season. These hours of practice meant that soon the hockey sticks would clash, and the inter-school games would start. The teams took advantage of the opportunity to learn new skills, they met with the Women's Hockey Team of Scotland at University City. When class games were over, Mrs. Helen Dunbar chose the Varsity Team. The Varsity Team had nine girls returning from last year, fifteen were added. Mary Foote, as captain, led the girls through a successful season. They met their opposing teams with zeal and vim. As the hockey players looked back over the season, joy mingled with dis- appointment as they recalled some of the games. The Varsity Team had no real stars, but they had something that could never be taken away from them-they had learned to work as a team and to be part of one, they had learned to win or lose with grace. 'J . l ! E 9:5 .QPQJJQ As the scene altered, many actors partici- pated in basketball. At the end of the class games Mrs. Helen Dunbar, the coach of these teams, picked the Varsity Team. Lois Fewell and Gwen Mason worked hard as co-captains of this team. Rehearsing many hours after school, these girls sought through fast shooting and skills to work as one person not as indi- viduals. l-ligh scoring was just one of the points of concentration, for "pivoting and springing" took much practice, time, and skill, but better than this, these girls developed friendship and memories not easily to be forgotten or taken away from them, Many times it was a nip-and- tuck fight as the other team, just as determined, sought the honor, but the Normandy cagers always seemed to obtain it, for they had an un- defeated season. Grace Wood, a junior, showed a great possibility, for she challenged Doi Betts high scoring record. As the season ended many wondered about next year there would be the same practices and the hope of fifteen HN" girls returning, the faces would change, new ones would replace the Senior girls, but experiences and memories of the team could never be erased.

At the beginning of the season each class team elected a man- ager. They were Carol Vogt, tenth grade: Iohna Glaze, eleventh gradep and Marion Mc- Farland, twelfth grade. These girls practiced two nights a week after school. Some learned the skills of jumping and twisting, while others acquired the finer points of serving and spik- ing. From the class teams in which there were ninety girls, the Varsity Volleyball Team was chosen by the coach, Mrs. Helen Dunbar. Mar- ion McFarland was chosen captain of the team by the squad. This was her second year as a member of the Varsity team. According to Mrs. Dunbar, the Varsity team had a successful season. The Varsity team played five games and was defeated only once. Although few games were played with other schools, the season at Normandy was an active one. These girls put forth every effort and each played a good game. The members of the team were presented letters in an assembly. As spring ushered in, the volleyball season came to a close, thus ending another scene in the Drama of 1952. V2 A r .. 4. waged QI' ecfion When the signs ot spring appeared, the girls' athletic field became a scene of activity. There were shouts of joy as the girls practiced hitting home runs and sliding into bases. The season was very short, and the conflicts of spring activities kept many girls from par- ticipating in softballg however, there were enough for class tearns. From these teams the Varsity squad was to be chosen at a later time. The Varsity team had four games scheduled with Clayton, Wellston, University City and Ritenour. As the Saga went to press, the girls had be- gun to practice and had elected class man- agers. The class managers were as follows: tenth grade, Lonnie lo Longhofery eleventh grade Margie Noonan: twelfth grade, Marie Kern, As the school year came to a close, these girls turned their attention to other sports away from school. Each girl had memories of past sports and all but the seniors looked forward to another year equally full of wins and de- feats, thrills and enjoyrnents' this completed the girls' sports year in the Drama of 1952.

In water ballet a group of tour girls had to create a routine to a musical number. When these requirements were met, they received letters. With many a "splash and dunk" these very active girls en- joyed the season. Miss Ferguson hoped that many girls would return next year. Another scene in the spotlight of the Drama of l952 was completed.

Practice time was used to de- velop individual skill and technique. Although the season was short, Miss Ferguson picked Lois Chambers, lane Williamson, Iulia Harkins, and Martha Douglass as the Varsity team. These girls played Fairview, Principia, Clayton, and University City. Showing "pep" and en- thusiasm, these tennis players had an enjoy- able season and made memories that can never be forgotten.

The names of the candidates who had succeeded were then submitted to the faculty for approval.

For two years previously many hours YM. fhis11irAl11r4'j'itxpf'1'ff'1'll11. of labor had paid off in the form of consecutive Medalist and All-American ratings. To attain these honors again this year was the aim of the 1952 staff. As the year progressed the section editors worked furiously to make their section the pride of the whole book. Many long hours of pres paring copy, scheduling pictures, and selling ads made the staff look eagerly forward to the publication of its annual. Editor Don Pollard and Miss Frances Brewington, advisor, checked the entire layout of the book to make sure it conformed with the high standards set in pre- vious years by other staffs. To finance its yearbook, the Saga sponsored its annual Backward Dance.

The junior members elected Sally Schmidt, president, Shirley Dunham, vice president, Ro- setta Vitale, secretary, Marilyn Small, treasurer, and Mary Foote, chaplain. Upon these officers and their sponsor, Mrs. Mary Mayhall rested the responsibility of the group's success. Led by their sponsor, Mrs. E. Sporich, lane Dach- roeden, president, Carol Schwitzer, vice presi- dent, Dolores Godel, secretary, Iackie Rutter, treasurer, the Sophomore Tri-Y planned many events for the future. Pigtails tied with varied colored ribbons and huge stuffed animals and dolls invaded the campus as the Iunior Tri-Y initiated the mem- bers of the newly-formed Sophomore Tri-Y. Sophomore girls were often seen carrying huge stacks of books and answered all the requests Light your fcmdle of ff?NOZL'-Skill and loyalty. with "Yes, Ma'am." With all foolish pranks and the horrors of initiation aside, an impressive candlelight initiation presented a different atmosphere. By the light of candles the Sophomore officers were inducted as they received the duties of their offices from the Iunior Tri-Y officers. After this candlelight initiation, the luniors treated the Sophomores to a party. The lunior Tri-Y girls also helped wrap candy to send to Berlin at Christmas time. They spent a whole afternoon at the County Teen Center along with other Tri-Y members to complete this project. The Iunior Tri-Y also helped at Christmas with the children of the Neighborhood House. They served the youngsters ice cream, cookies, and candy. The children were thrilled with the books and toys which they received from these girls. There Were many tears when the girls left to go home, but these subsided when the girls promised to return at a later date. Page Eighty-Two 0 141161 me emocrafic ag Plans and more plans were made as time quickly passed. Faculty-Student basketball and volleyball games were scheduled. Hi-Y-Tri-Y hayrides and box suppers were just a couple of the rnany successful planned events. Money- rnaking projects a stage show and selling pencils to students were discussed as possible spring events. Each Tri-Y planned many suc- cessful events which only improved their repu- tation of good fellowship and loyalty. The last meetings ot the year were open dis- cussion sessions when extensive plans were made for the next year. The Iunior Tri-Y made preparations to assume the leadership of the Tri-Y's in order that they could aid the younger groups. The Sophomore Tri-Y thoroughly dis- cussed how they could aid the organization of a new Tri-Y and make the new Sophomore girls feel at home. 'With the help of the Senior Tri-Y, both groups were certainly ready to ascend and assume the leadership ot the fellowship, loyalty, and democratic way of life of the Tri-Y.

For officers they chose: Bill Hargate, presidentg Laura Holmes, Vice presi- dent, Charlotte Collier, secretaryg and Mary Fisher, treasurer. Club members strove to earn two hundred points for a pin, a small brass and silver palette with tiny paint brushes. The mem- bers looked back with pleasure upon their out- standing achievement, the Beaux Arts Ball. To provide the students with a better under- standing of business methods was the aim of Mr. Rohlfs and Miss Grammaticoff, the co- sponsors of the Diversified Occupations Club. Through this club, closer relations between stu- dents and employers were established and maintained. While D. O. students received full credit towards graduation, they were also ac- quiring an invaluable amount of training and experiences in the business field. Page Eighty-Four t Solving the many perplexing problems oi both students and teachers and preparing a combined handbook and buzz book for the stu- dents were the main undertakings of the Student-Teacher Planning Council. Clirnaxing the year this Council, sponsored by Miss Ger- aghty, Miss Long, and Mr. Blitz, prepared an assembly in order to inform the students what improvements had been made during the year by tho Student-Teacher Planning Council. To promote interest in science and to de- velop the individual scientific interests ot the student was the aim ot the Chemistry Club which was led by Miss E. Long, sponsor, Bill Cook, president, and Bob Malison, secretary- treasurer. The club's special project this year was a cancer research. Many members, be- cause ot interest stimulated by the Chemistry Club, have gone on to successful lives devoted to science. 2 cienfidfa .xdndl pfannerd ain xloerience 'llllltlt HUW: Lawns, l'rt'--man, Klinalwr, Smith, ljanimkonliler, Dunn, Malison, Porter, Dunkel.

Saga and Courier editors kept the photographer busy every day tor the whole year, and the results were the finest pictures ot campus lite that had ever been taken. Setting up microphones and running the spot- lights were the jobs of the boys who worked with the Public Address System. These jobs not only covered the school activities but also the night social events. Visual Aids played an important part in school lite. These well-trained boys were ale ways on the job. Also trained by Mr. l-loetler, they did an outstanding job with their work for Visual Aids. The last tew weeks of school were spent in training new staff members and repairing elec- trical equipment.

Mirifanfd prove gygcienf Although the school assistants gave a great deal at service to the school, they were seldom thanked and usually forgotten. These people spent a lot ot their time in helping to make the school run smoother. They were like the tor- golten pronipters behind the scenes oi a play. The ollice assistants had to be able to do almost anything. They ran errands, answered telephones, tiled letters, rninieographed an- nouncements, and took the place oi the regular otlice workers who were absent. The jobs oi the attendance office workers required a lot of hard work. Besides writing excuses tor the abf sorilcos, they were responsible for keeping an accurate Student Absentee Chart. Helping sick students and general checkup work were the jobs of the nurses assistants. Library Workers shelved books, checked out all kinds oi litera- ture, and aided students in securing their needed materials. P 1:10 Whatever the job was, these assistants were able and willing to help. Their individual ef- forts should have been commended.

Although the club was new, it accomplished a lot. The members became active members of the National League for Bowlers. They re- ceived their membership in the National Leagueg therefore they were qualified ior league bowling. The club also received a charter from the Student Council in order that the members were eligible to receive points for the National Honor Society. , if Mr. C. Frees, who sponsored the bowlers for til, entire season, was very pleased with the bdilvling results.

Enthusiastic dancers practiced every Friday after school in order to develop poise and self-confidence. This strenuous activity was participated in by stu- dents from all the grades. Swirling about the floor in their brightly col- ored costumes, the dancers produced a profu- sion of colorful designs. The members of the club performed for the Mothers' Club and at many assemblies at other schools. They re- ceived recognition for their work in write-ups and pictures. Besides learning the regular square dances, new round dances presented an added attraction. Special couples who had learned special dances were presented as solo- ists at school assemblies. Mrs. H. Dunbar, who had introduced this vig- orous dance in 1949, was pleased with the great amount of enthusiasm in the student par- Around, around, and around we go. ticipation.

Although temporarily paralyzed during the football season, because some of the band members were also on the football team, the band appeared in full force for the four Nor- mandy Music Association concerts. The audi- ence heartily enjoyed the Christmas concert which featured a Christmas overture and the novelty piece, "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Rein- deer," played by the band. Baton twirler, Ioan Shasserre, was featured on two of the Normandy Music Association con- certs. Ioan, who was the state champion twirler for the past three years, worked hard as she prepared to again defend her title at the state tournament. Many of Normandy's band members were soloists or played in small ensembles at the Spring Festival. Band members also added Skill and p1'ar'Ii0e nmkf' rr staff' Ullllllllllllll. their talents to the programs of the All-County Band and Orchestra.

Stars, cast, producers and di- rectors had outdone themselves in preparing for this gigantic produc- tion. Long before the opening of school many of the year's social events had been scheduled. The calendar was filled with dances, plays, assemblies, club meetings and numerous other things. As the first day of school drew near, the stage was set: the drama, ready to begin. Early Thursday morning, Septem- ber 6, the curtain rang up on the first scene of the "Drama of 1952" as Normandy's doors were flung open wide to greet its students. Eagerly they plunged into a year which meant new friends and faces, new courses and new teachers. Return- ing to the western hilltop after a year's absence, the sophomores took their place in the spotlight along with the juniors and seniors. Near the end of the first month of the fall semester, the school's social life began with the Hi Ball given by the Hi-Y fellas. Couples entering the gym found it decorated with pink elephants, bubbles, and a huge champagne glass. The friendly at- mosphere, soft music and hilarious floor show made the dance a big success. fl , -X4 ,n wen ufumn A morning assembly launched the 1951-1952 Activity Drive. Skits given by the Student Council, Dramatic De- partment, Courier Staff, Saga Staff and football team helped to convince students they should "Take Activity." Admttting all Activity subscribers free of charge, the Student Council sponsored a Sock Dance as their first school project. Cautious at first, couples soon found that dancing without shoes did not hamper their style one bit. Everyone had a won- derful time, Country style. Party slogans, posters and ban- ners were the first signs of the Senior election of class officers. Soon, these three political parties the Lollipops, the Muck-Ducks and the Goodfellows were the talk of the campus. To put the seniors really in the spirit of things, cr campaign assembly was given the day before the elections. When the big day finally came, the seniors swarmed to the polling place and anxiously dropped their votes into the ballot box. The girls of Normandy proved as persistent as the Northwest Mounted Police when it came to getting their men for the Saga's annual Back- wards Dance. The big turnout was proof of the dance's enormous such cess. ln a hillbilly setting, Harold Haynes was crowned Lazy Luke and Nadine Dulce, Lovely Lou. 1 Page One Huridii-d One .Nm'k.w inxpirr' II f1'olif'sunir' fi I'I1'f'ry ruff' f'0IlllfS.

The Vikingettes decorated the goal posts, and the Pep Club sponsored a lively pep assembly. All ettorts were not in vain, tor Normandy Won the game. "Tho 11Iuy's the thing." "All for Normandy stand up and holler." .gluvfenfa mr The long hours spent after school rehearsing for the all-school play, "Little Women," pro- duced good results. The director, Miss Colleen Wilkinson, and her cast were greatly apprecia- tive ot the Warm, applauding audiences. Snow flakes, a snow-covered tree and silver "itll hail hm' nmje'xfy."'

The detailed decorations transformed the gym into a wonderland of beauty, a Carnival in Paris. Amidst this splendor, Nina Garofalo was crowned Beaux Arts Ball Queen. The Student-Teacher Planning Council and the Hi-Y combined efforts to present the Sweet- heart Swing, the proceeds going to the pub- lican of a school guide book. Nancy Poos and Kenny Eikelmann took the spotlight when they were chosen Queen of Hearts and Campus Cupid, respectively. The senior play, adapted from the book, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay", was a rollick- ing success. Aided by authentic costuming, the cast did a marvelous job of amusing and satisfying their audiences. All agreed that it was one of the school's best dramatic produc- tions. The possibilities of the wrestling team taking a first place in the State Tournament brought many spectators to the meets. The spectators' time was well spent too, for the Viking matmen provided them with many tense and thrilling moments. Upon entering the gym, couples were greeted by lovely lassies selling green carnations. The occasion was the Courier's dance, the Clancy IIm'0rr1.ting's fun, too .'

Those couples who Won attendance prizes agreed it was merely "the luck of the Irish". Chuck Norman was on hand to crown the lovely colleen, Iean Brower, St. Pat's Queen. The Student Council, in order to encourage talented students to perform before audiences, undertook to present a Talent Assembly. A sig- nificant assembly of nineteen different acts gave the students just one more good reason to be proud of their school. Wheri aspirant lettermen began to speak re- spectfully to their superiors, it was easy to tell Rookie Week was near at hand. Much to the dismay of the rookies, the Lettermen, with their thick, varnished paddles, wasted no time get- ting things into "full swing", however, it was all in fun, and the suffering rookies soon forgot their rniseries. Immediately following Rookie Week, all members, new and old, met as Lettermen to plan the annual Ounce Bounce. The fellas shouldered the responsibility well, for the dance attracted an unusually large crowd. Although a group of Indian dancers presented a color- ful and different type of entertainment, the out- standing event of the evening came when the title of Lettermen's Queen, along with a coveted trophy, was bestowed on Barbara Putz.

About thirty Vilcingette initiates donned gay ninety costumes, rolled their hair in pin curls, and did a thorough de-glamorizing job. Their amusing dress and antics brought smiles to many serious faces and helped to relieve the tension of the last weeks of school. The favorite pastime of the student body, be- sides eating, was lounging on the gym steps.

Their hard work was justly rewarded when each won a four-year college scholarship. Sponsored by Quill and Scroll and backed by Albert's of Wellston, the fashion show, "Pretty as a Picture", was a gala event. All who left the show were filled with visions of beautiful new summer frocks. Page One Hundred Six rom ana! graduafion ln rireprrrcrtiorr for Commencement seniors were rnocrsured for cups ond gowns.

When the great day finally arrived, many excited people filled the gym. A reverent hush fell on all as- sembled as each couple of the court made its entrance.
