Another year is here, and so are we freshmen. We spent the first
few days getting settled. Ben Boyd, Sybil Ford, and Fred Carroll, Jr.,
were chosen to represent us on the Student Council. Some of our boys
played on the second basketball team.
We had two outings and one party during the year. Although we
have received the usual amount of razzing from the upperclassmen, we
can truthfully say that freshman days are happy days, and we feel
proud to be a part of the busy life of N. -C. T. H. S.

ACT I-FRESHMAN YEAR
In September, 1940, ninety-three freshmen marched in and invad-
ed N. C. T. H. S. After a few days of g-etting lost and trying to get to
the classrooms, we became adjusted to our proper assignments and
duties. We were proud of our freshman basketball team. Remember
the Cardinal Campaign and our candy sales? We freshman girls were
also proud of our venetian blinds which we lb-ought for the English room
and Mr. Phelps' office.
ACT IIQSOPHOMORE YEAR
We sophomores felt rather grown up and helped play jokes on the
little "Freshies," just as upperclassmen had played on us the previous
year. We entered -clubs, games, and various activities of the school.
ACT III-JUNIOR YEAR
In September, 1942, we again enlisted for service in the N. C. T.
H. S. Our class, which was the largest in the history of the school, par-
ticipated in many activitiesg but several of our members had been trans-
ferred to other camps.
We were well represented in the band, plays, orchestra, clulbs,
athletics, and Cardinal Staff. Our greatest maneuver of the year was
the J unior-Senior Banquet and Prom.
ACT IV--SENIOR YEAR
We seniors are taking our final training and will soon go into oth-
er branches of service. Although we must depart, we shall not forget
this act in our lives, and we hope we may be successful in our next
drama of life whether it be on the home front or over-seas.
'Our final -act will be presented here in the high sch-o'ol auditorium
Friday, May 19. We invite you to come to our last public appearance

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy"
say the members of the checker club. They tell us
there is an art in checker playing, but we can't
find out who the champions are. Maybe Theron
Johnson, the sponsor, will divulge the secret. Since
this club presented the assembly program on March
10, we are convinced that some of them are not
only checker players but also musicians.

In addition, during the spring season, those boys not enrolled as regular P. stu-
dents were given opportunity to participate in some semi-organized game or activity
during the student's free hour. This year especially, the Armed Forces have im-
pressed upon the educational institutions the need for a greater emphasis upon the
physical fitness of -the average student. With that in mind, the P. E. Classes placed
the stress upon group calisthenics. Thus through the use of the relay type of game,
small numbered teams and mass participation, the co-ordination as a unit rather than
an individual was stressed.
On Thursday evening, March 9, at 6:00 o'clock, a. banquet was held for the bas-
ketball team in the home economics room at the high school. The abanquet was a re-
sult of a winning on behalf of the second team in which they won seventy-five per
cent of their games in a period set oft by the coach. The members of the second
team invi-ted the first team as their guests. Everyone had an excellent time and en-
joyed the delicious food .prepared by the home economics classes, under the super-
vision of Miss Robison. Those present at the banquet were our principal, H. J. Phelps,
caretaker of the gym, Louis Hill, local referees, Ed Griffith and Norman Gerdes, Mr.
Chapman, the coach, and members of the Board of Education, L. H. Bayley, Dan More-
head and 'Fred Carroll. The members of the second team present were Charles Greer,
Dalton Aud, 'Stanley Johnson, Lyn Martin, Kenneth Doemer, Fred Carroll, Jr., Ben
Boyd, Darrell Mobley and John Randall Johnson. The first team who were the sec-
ond team's guests, were Jack Shain, Norman Hill, Wilbur Clark, Derald Henson and
Carl Doerner. The manager, Ralph Jordan, was also present. The menu consisted of:
Potatoes in Half Shell Buttered Peas
Vegetable Jello Salad
Parkerhouse Rolls Butter
The track season opened March 20 with -thirty boys reporting for organization
meeting in the gym. After two weeks of eliminations were effected, the following re-
main as regular members of the track squad:
Orland Davis, Bill Harrell, Logan Roark, Cyril Austin, Val Pearce, Phil Van
Winkle, Wilbur Clark, Porter McKenzie, Bob Amos, Robert Healy, Norman Hill, Dar-
rell Mobley, Derald Henson, Ted Van 'Winkle, and Dalton Aud with Ralph Jordan as

City came with second honors. The County Track Meet was held April 28 officially
closing the track season, but Norris City continued on with practice meets wi-th neigh-
boring schools such as Crossville and Eldorado.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
They Direct Our Line of March
As We, the seniors of 1944, pass from this school into the many
varied activities of life, We realize that we owe much to our Board of
Education and Faculty. In the years to come we will look back on
these past four years in N. C. T. H. S. as probably the best collection
of years in our lives. We take this opportunity to express our appreci-
ation and gratitude to you who have directed and advised us.

OUR HIGH SCHOOL BECOMES A MEMBER OF
NORTH CENTRAL ASSOCIATION
This year the Norris City Township High School joined the North Central As-
sociation. An application for membership was filed and granted several years ago,
but we did not join until this year. The North Central .Association has certain re-
quirements which high schools must meet. There must be adequate equipment, a
specific taxation valuation, and a nine months' term. The teachers must meet quali-
fication requirements designated fby the North Central Association. We are proud to
be a member of this organization as there is only one other high school in the county
VISITORS FROM S. I. T. C. VISIT HOME
On Tuesday, 'February 15, 1944, the home economics department had visitors
from Southern Illinois Teachers' College. The visitors, Miss Pauline Schacy of Gore-
ville, Miss Betty Qualls of Valier, Miss Margariete Wilson of Canbondale, and Miss
Carolyn Smith of Norris City are juniors in the home economics department of South-
ern Illinois Teachers' College. They were accompanied by Miss Gladys Babcock, a
teacher at the college, and Mrs. Dorothy Carty, the Southern Illinois State Supervisor
of Home Economics.
These girls were observing teaching methods and class room procedures. The fol-
lowing day they visited at Noble High School.
STUDENTS ATTEND STUDENT COUNCIL
CONVENTION AT PEORIA
Robylee McGhee and Mary Stephens, members of the Student Council for 194-2-
43, were sent as delegates to the Tenth Annual Convention of the Illinois Association
of 'Student Councils held in Peoria April 20 and May 1.
'Leaving home at 2:00 Thursday morning, the girls arrived in Peoria about 4:00
o'clock Thursday afternoon. They spent the remainder of the afternoon sightseeing,
and during the evening they attended a. movie. After registration on Friday morning,
they attended the first session which began at 10:30. During this session the girls
heard two very fine welcome addresses, one delivered by L. R. MacDonald, principal
of the Woodruff High School, and the other by the Honorable E. N. Woodruff, the
Mayor of Peoria. Friday afternoon the girls attended the second session at which the
subjects discussed were "War Time Projects of Student Councils", "The 'Student Di-
rectory", "Freshman Orientation", "Activity Tickets", and "The Council's Cooperation
with the Student Body". At the banquet given at 6:30 Friday evening, an interesting
and humorous address was given by R. B. Bradley of fPeoria. The program provided
other entertainment including singing by the Girls' Variety Chorus and dancing skits
arranged by the East Peoria High School. After the program, the girls attended the
Saturday morning a Panel Forum was held. The topic discussed was "The Stu-
den-t's Position in His School and State-Today and in the Future".
At the sixth session held -Saturday afternoon, officers for the coming year were
elected. At the end of this session, the Convention adjourned.
The girls arrived home early Sunday morning feeling that the Convention had
been a great success and hoping that the succeeding ones will- continue to be as edu-
cational and enjoyable. A
BOX SUPPER FOR THE BOND DRIVE
On February 8, 1944, a. box supper was held in the high school gymnasium for the
purpose of selling lbonds for the Fourth War Bond Drive.
The gymnasium was attractively decorated with flags and red, white, and blue
streamers, and a. very interesting program was presented. The invocation was given
by the Reverend C. E. Hedges. Inspirational talks were made by C. E. Weirauch,
chaplain of the American Legion, and I. E. Turner, Township Chairman of the Bond
Drive. Two war pictures were shown, and the high school band, under the direction
of G. fC. Blacker, furnished appropriate music.
After the program, artistically decorated boxes, delicious cakes, pies, homemade
candy, and chickens were auctioned to the highest bidders. The proceeds from the
auction amounted to six thousand two hundred dollars.
We wish to express our appreciation to the American 'Legionnaires and to all who
contributed in any way to the success of this event.
THE HALLOWE'EN CARNIVAL
On the night of October 29 at the high school gym, everything was in full swing!
The bingo players were sitting around the bingo stand, each player hoping to be the
lucky winner. The students fishing from the fish pond found the small presents
amusing. On the opposite side of the gymnasium were others pitching pennies de-
lighting in splurging their "coppers". "iHurry! hurry! hurry!" was the cry heard
from other corners of the gym. What a stampede! Everyone was trying to see the
many sideshows-the life-like statues gazing into space, the many freaks such as the
fat woman, the largest -baby in the world, the bearded lady, the wild man from Borneo,
and the other amazing and unusual creatures of this world. Rememfber the Hula
Girls dancing to the enchanting music of -their country, Hawaii? After the palm of
her hand was crossed with silver, the fortune teller told of many things of the past,
present, an-d future. We must not forget the House of Terror-the gloomy, weird at-
mosphere made the students' hair rise at the nape of their necks: the shrill screams
and shrieks, and the blood-curdling moans were sounds which we still remember. The
evening was finished with sandwiches and drinks handed across the counter of a color-
fully-decorated stand. It was an evening of thrills, mystery, and fun.
MAGAZINE SALE CONTEST
Again the girls in the Home Economics Classes were divided into two groups-
the WAVES and the WACS. The captain of the WAVES was Kathleen Keasler, and
Margaret Justice of ,the WACS. Pauline Pool was the Commander-in-Chief. The
girls' profit from the contest with the Curtis Magazine Company was fifty-eight dol-
lars and twenty-eight cents. Aileen Maddox, Bernice Healy, and Virginia Holland
sold over twenty dollars apiece and received a Cardinal free. Other prizes were given
for smaller sales of magazines. The girls purchased a breakfast set for the Home

DISTRICT MEETING OF HOME
The Home Economics teachers of District
III met at the Norris City Township High
School on Saturday, March 18. Mrs. Lella
Endres, the White County Ll-Iome Adviser,
talked about "Ho'memaking in China, North
Africa". Mrs. Dorothy Carty, the Supervisor
of Southern Illinois Home Economics, talked
to the teachers of how they can make their
summer supervision more effective. 'Miss
Dorothy South of Crossville gave a review of
the film "Blame It On Love". A discussion
of films for classroom work followed. Each
teacher exhibited and told about some illus-
trative or stimulating material that she has
used in classroom procedures.
The members off the Homemaking II
class who served luncheon at noon were:
Bernice Healy, Eulah -Short, Christine Turpin,
Ruth Hughes, Dortha Mitchell, Stella Healy,
and Lenora Haynes.
STUDENT COUNCIL DELEGATES
G-O TO CHICAGO
Our student council sent Roy Oneal and
Fred Carroll, Jr., as delegates to the Illinois
Association of Student Councils Convention
which was held at the Sherman Hotel in Chi-
cago, April 14-15. Two hundred twenty-nine
schools were represented and over one thou-
sand students were registered.
After the convention was called to order
on April 14 the Honorable Edward J. Kelley
gave a welcome address. Others spoke on the
welfare of the people and the government.
In the afternoon session Dr. Harry C. Mc-
Kown, who has written several books on edu-
cation, gave a very interesting address on the
work of student councils. A panel forum on
"Developing Competent and Responsible
Citizens" and a round table discussion on "The
Student Council, Today-Tomorrow" were two
outstanding features of the Convention.
The boys had time to do some sightsee-
ing also. They arrived in Norris City Sunday
morning feeling that they had had a. very
profitable and enjoyable trip.
F. F. A. DELEGATES GO TO
The YF. IF. A. of N. C. T. H. S. sent three
delegates to the 16th annual meeting of the
Future Farmers of America at Champaign,
April 7-8. The boys who represented our
school were Carl Doerner, Bert Weas, and Ted
Van Winkle. Approximately one hundred
fifty schools of the state were represented at
the conference, which was held in the audi-
torium of the University of Illinois. The high-
light of the convention was the meeting at
which state officers were elected. At this
meeting a program was presented and the fol-
lowing topics were discussed by prominent
men of the organization: "Soil Conserva-
tion", "Soil Erosion", "New Frontier", and
"Postwar Effort". Various contests were
held and prizes amounting to 52,500.00 were
awarded to the winners.
After returning home, the boys made re-
ports to the F. F. A. on their experiences at
On Wednesday, April 19, from 3:30 to
5:00 p. m., the Future Homemakers Club en-
tertained with a Mother-Daughter Tea in the
home economics room of the high school. The
room wa.s beautifully decorated with spring
flowers, and the table decorations were in
keeping with the spring theme. On display
were exhibits which were made by the Home
Economics Classes. These interesting ex-
hibits included dresses, aprons, rugs, pot hold-
ers, calots, jumpers, skirts, jerkins, doilies,
embroidered pillow cases, quilt tops, and em-
broidered luncheon cloths. Also on display
were some of the canned foods -prepared by
the Home Economics Classes. The guests en-
joyed seeing the exhibits and commented on
the fine Work which is 'being accomplished
by the various classes.
The girls and their guests were served
iced tea and dainty cakes and cookies, which
were prepared by the various Home Eco-
nomics classes under the direction of Miss
The following committees helped to make

Now that work on the "Cardinal" is finished and compliments are coming to the
staff, we want to extend our thanks to the merchants and business men who have
made these compliments possible-the advertisers. Without this aid, there would be
