Page Six ix ADMINISTRATION GETS BACK TO NORMAL The end of the war brought changes to many industries and occupa- tions-especially to the school and teaching. These changes were evident also at Norris City Township High School. With the help of the Board of Education, Mr. Phelps was able to fill the vacancies on our faculty which had been caused by the war. Several former instructors, who had been serving with the armed forces, returned and others who had been forced to double-up in their work relaxed and returned to their own fields as new faculty members were added. Among those who returned were Kenneth Cole, the coach, who served for three and a half years as a Physical Training Instructor at a Naval Airbaseg Duane Mount, instructor in Science and History, who formerly was an officer in the Army Air Corps. He left in Janu- ary to continue his education and his place was taken by Herschel New- comb, a former instructor in the High School, who had recently been re- leased from the Army. Another reappearance on the faculty was an agriculture teacher. This position was filled by Mr. Davis. The valiant efforts of those who worked so hard and under such ad- verse conditions during the war will always be remembered and appreci- ated. The return to peace is bringing a return to normal of school enroll- ment and faculty numbers and will give those' tireless workers a well deserved rest.

Between the courses speeches were delivered by the principal, Mr. H. J. Phelpsg president of the school board, Frank Bayleyg and by Betty Gwaltney, Secre- tary-Treasurer of the '46 class. . After the banquet a dance was held in the ballroom. At intermission the dance floor slid back revealing one of the school's three swimming pools.

Entertainment was also provided by Donald Stovall and his "Swooney Swingsters". Mary Jane Knight, the renowned torch singer, sang several numbers including one which was written especially for her by Fleeta Williams, the feminine Irving Berlin.

Model mother Betty Atkins. Betty was a model before her marriage but she norvtdevgtes her time to rearing her young son who poses for the picture on "Chesty" po a o c ips. Diplomat Mary Beth Renshaw. Miss Renshaw made the trip to Norris City by heliocopter from Moscow accompanied by her personal pilot, Avis Bryant. En route she stopped in Austria to pick up the Duchess of Hapsburg-the former Betty Gwaltney. Among those who were unable to attend were: Dr. J. R. Betson, Jr., the eminent physician, who was called out on a case unex- pectedly. Dr. Betson, accompanied by nurse, Dortha Mae Mitchell, was called to re- move a splinter from the big toe of Joy Stovall. Joy sells the Tivoli theatre and got the splinter in her toe when, after removing her shoes to rest her feet, she accidentally kicked the side of the box office. Kenneth Doerner. Kenny, who plays 1st base for the "Mudville Moles" the Doggie league champs, found that his schedule made it impossible for him to come. Radio announcer Billy Roark.

Page Nineteen Junior-Senior Prom April 26, 1946, will stand out as one of the most important dates in the high school lives of the Senior class of 1946. On this memorable oc casion, as guests of the Junior class, they were entertained with the Ju- nior-Senior Prom. This year the Prom was held in the Empire Room of the Vendome Hotel in Evansville, Indiana. The Empire Room, a beautiful ballroom, is decorated with murals of landscapes and with mirror walls. The music was furnished by a local Evansville orchestra of ten pieces which played from 9:00 until 12:00. Midway through the evening a delicious buffet supper of sandwiches, salad, and drink was served. Transportation to and from the dance was provided by two chartered buses. The people who enjoyed this unusual treat included the members of the Senior and Junior classes, the members of the school board and their wives, and the faculty. This was one of the most unusual and most enjoyable proms ever held by the Norris City Township High School. All those who were for- tunate enough to be able to attend this affair wish to thank the Junior Class for their very successful and truly different prom.

Our class consisted of 51 mem- bers. Naturally, as with all Freshmen, we received quite a bit of teasing from the upper classmen, but soon became accustomed to our new school' and took part in the activities. This year we have only 48 members. We're sometimes called "Silly Sophomores" but we are looking forward to next year when our name will be "Jolly J uniorsf' We have enjoyed our year of school very much. Three of our members were chosen as cheer leaders. They were: Gloria Pyle, J erry Esch, and Lloyd Donehue. Our Student Council representatives are: Raymond English, Tommy Cavender, and Gloria Pyle.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY This year a chapter of the National Honor Society is being established at Norris City Township High School. This organization has chapters in high schools all over the nation which are members of the North Central Association. The students who are elected are members of the upper third of the senior class whose scholarship, citizenship, and participation in school activities have made them outstanding and worthy of member- ship in this organization. The Norris City chapter will be sponsored by by Miss Forchee. Page Twenty-eight I I..

We knew this would take practice and lots of it. We practiced at every possible moment-during the noon hour, after school, and dluing activity periods. Now as we look back over our work we are proud of the many things we have accomplished. Here are a few of our activities: We represented Norris City at Carmi for Corn Day, proudly marclung down Main Street in our cardinal and white uniforms. We attended the Teacher's Institute at Carmi. There we had a "Ragtime Wedding" accompanied by the band. Those who participated were Gloria Pyle, the bride, Lloyd Donahue, the groom, Dale Phelps, father, Donna Brown, mother and Gregg Eubanks, the preacher. Mr. Blacker wrote a loyalty song for the Springerton High School and dedicated the song to them. For this, they gave a dinner in our honor. The band holds an important place in the Norris City High throughout basketball season. We played for the county tournament and all home-town games. The band has cardinal sweaters with white lyres to wear for the non-conference games. Most of the instruments have been repaired and now look like new. We will have a band banquet for the band members and their parents. The seniors will be awarded the Silver Seal.

They were Pauline Poole, Gloria Pyle, Betty Atkins, Lloyd Donehue, Jerry Esch, and Bud Evans. Their colorful outfits were composed of white trousers, white shirts, and red sweaters with white letters and chevrons for the boys, and white skirts, white weskits, and red blouses with white chevrons for the girls. With their various yell routines which included exhibitions of tumbling, they attracted attention wherever they went. The cheerleaders did a good job an we are very proud of them. Much of this credit we owe to Miss Jones who taught them new routines and practised with them many evenings after school. PEP CLUB The Pep Club is one of the largest organizations in school. It was organized to take the place of pep sessions. During the meetings, every other Thursday at activity period, the students had a chance to earn new yells with the yell leaders' routines. liaise Piep Club was organized temporarily for the basketball season and is sponsored by ss ones.

Senior The only experienced man from last year's squad. An all round outstanding man who could shoot with either hand. His ability will certainly be missed on next year's team. FRED JR. "WHEEZER" CARROLL. Junior With little experience early in the season "Wheezer" came along and was compliment- ed -by many coaches during the last few games. His greatest asset was ball handling and passing. Wheezer played guard-keep your eye on him next year. BEN "BEN'NY" BOYD. Junior. An outstanding rebounder and a good pivot man. Ben played under the basket where the going was tough and established quite a reputation as a free throw artist. Ben always came through in the pinches, and will be making the head lines next year. JOHN RANDALL "TOUGHEY" JOHNSON. Junior An all round man who had a wonderful one hand shot 25 or 30 feet from the basket. Dead on free throws and with fight from start to finish. Better add numbers to the score board for "Toughey" next year. JOHNNIE "SLIM" BETSON. Senior Inexperienced early in the season "Slim" gave the team that extra touch. Improving near the end of the season "Slim" was becom- ing one of the best centers. in the countxgg We always fig1u'ed on the tip and reboun with Betson. FRANK "DREAM BOY" BAYLEY. Senior "Dream Boy" was known for his fight and his peculiar way of making free throws, giv- ing the spectators a thrill by arching the ball 20 feet high. He had an under hand, pull shot which netted him several free throws. He was never beaten until the final whistle blew which inspired the team with a lotta fight. Page Forty W. D. UMR. CURLEY" NORRIS. Junior A reserve man who was the brains and cap- tain of the second team. "Mr. Curley" was almost overlooked at the start of the season but saw .quite a bit of action on the first team during the latter half. "Curley" should be a regular and a valuable man next season. PAUL "SHADOW" BISHOP. Senior The "S-hadow's" basket eye, speed, and fight would have been a great asset to the team during the tournament season had it not been for illness which forced him to be out during the latter part of the basketball sea- son. IVAN "REID" JOHNSON. Junior A valuable second team man who had an unguardable hook shot. "Red", favoring a bad leg mjury all season, will be big and tough and fighting for a regulart berth on next year's squad. EZRA "EZZ" MILLSPAUGH. Senior A good guard, lots of fight, and with a high percentage of free throws, "Ezz" kept the second team in the game. The object of a lot of kiddin f o th h "E " S Iffll ecoac, zz wasa swell school citizen and a grand fellow. We needed someone to brighten up our loss. Thanks, "Ezz". DALE "DOC"' PHELPS. Sophomore "Doc" was an all star manager, first aid man, statistician, scorer, and all round man. Last - to leave and first to arrive much of the har- mony was due to "Doc's" diligent work and interest in the success of the team. He was mannerly and quiet but always at your elbow when needed. KENNETH COLE. Coach Kenneth Cole is a returned war veteran. We can truthfully say "Kenny" is one of the best coaches N. C. has ever had. As most of the men on the first team were inexperienced he was forced to start from scratch. However, under his expert coaching, the boys became a team, improving as the season progressed.

Twenty-one modern and beautiful maple bookkeeping and typing desks confront the eye upon entrance to the room. Underwood and Royal Typewriters are placed in the drop- head compartments of the desks, two Under- wood-Sunstrand Adding Machines appear in one end of the roomy and an Underwood-Sunstrand Bookkeeping Machine is placed in another cor- ner. During bookkeeping class all students are bent industriously over their work, and in typing class the click of the typewriters is music to the ears of those passing down the hall. Shorthand class is one of especial in- terest with first year students transcribing and writing well-formed business letters. Proof of the excellent work done in this attractive and efficiently equipped room IS seen in the form of a completed set of well-kept bookkeeping ledgers, cash books, etc.g.typ1ng testsg shorthand notesg typewritten P1Ct11I.'6SQ and shorthand pictures. The N. C. T. H. S. student need not hesi- tate or wait until later years to determine the line of work he wishes to follow if he is inter- ested in a business education. Opportunities for almost every phase of work in the business world and development of almost every talent are presented to him. Well-organized courses of interest to every student have been planned to meet his interest and abilities, and excel- lent equipment has been purchased to aid the student in all the work involved in commer- Typing II Wyatt Martin Roberla Davis Leon Spence Pearl Aud Ivan Johnson Fred Carroll, Jr. Typing I ' ns Ezra Millspaugh Mary Beth Renshaw Lee Riley Kathryn Boyd John Randall Joh on Margaret Henson Roberta Wade Frank Bayley Bill Roark Bob Sanders Johnnie Betson Christine Turpin Marian Kennedy Paul Bishop Jerry Harper Betty Gwaltney BCH.

It was the first time in years that it has been held at our school. Since this was the first to1n'nament in our gymnasium since we have been in high school, naturally we were all thrilled. People crowded into the gym until it looked as if it would not hold another person, but by sitting very close and seating the band on the stage we were able to seat several hundred spectators. The first night of the tournament-January 24-three games were played. They were as follows: Spring- erton vs. Mills-Prairie, Norris City vs. Grayville, and Enfield vs. Crossville. The band, under the direction of G. C. Blacker furnished music before the games started and at the half of the first game. At the half of the second game, the girls' P. E. classes, under the direction of Miss Jones, gave a colorful tumbling demonstration. At the half of the third game, the boys' P. E. classes under the direction of Mr. Cole, gave a thrilling demonstration of various gymnastics. On the second night of the tournament the winners returned and so did the spec- tators. Mills-Prairie, the winner over Springerton, was victorious over Maunie, and Grayville, who defeated Norris City the previous night, scored a victory over Cross- ville and thus became the White County Champs. Again the on-lookers were entertain- ed by the band and the demonstrations of both the -boys and the girls' P. E. classes. We all had a truly wonderful time at our tournament and we cordially invite all of you back to our next one. CARD! NAL CAMPAIGN One of the biggest events of the year at N. C. T. H. S. is the annual Cardinal campaign. This marks the time when the Athenians and Guestonians show the great- est loyalty to their organizations. This year the campaign was held earlier than usual. It opened December 3 and continued until 1 p. m. Friday, December 7. During these five days everything was in more or less different atmosphere around school. As you walked throught the hall- way it could easily be told who was a Guestonian or who was an Athenian. During activity period every morning of this week, speeches were made by various students- and, of course, we shall not forget those made by Mr. Phelps, definitely a Guestonian, and that great Athenian leader, Mr. Blacker. After a week of canvassing the town and selling our yearbook to everyone whom we thought would be interested, we eagerly awaited that final announcement of the winner. The announcements started coming in-"just five more minutes." "If you have a subscription, turn it in now!" "Just two minutes." And then, at last the cam- paign is over. The Athenians are victorious!! Soon the shouting is over for another year. And we are anxiously awaiting the next Cardinal campaign. Page Forty-eight GAA CAMPING TRIP On October 19th the GAA girls, under the leadership of Miss Jones, who was accompanied by Mrs. Dan Morehead, were eagerly awaiting the trip to Sandy Run for an -all night camping trip. Naturally, the trip to camp was full of GAA songs and loads of laughter. Each girl had her own -blankets, and was well prepared to spend a night Hroughing it". We had plenty of food on the bus, too. Arriving at the cabin a fire was made in the fireplace, as well as the outdoor oven, which was ideal for our midnight wiener roast. We all gathered around the fires telling ghost stories, playing games, dancing, and gossiping. After a busy evening, we began to get sleepy, and, as there were plenty of beds 4????D for everyone, we went to bed-but who slept???-the one who said, "You never sleep on a slumber party, girls." After having chili and coffee at 3:00 A. M., several girls decided to go on a moonlight walk which ended in a "pile on sacks" for everyone. Oh, those skinned knees! - Need we say that everyone enjoyed this camping experience and had a wonderful time. But, after witnessing a beautiful sunrise, we rolled up our blankets, cleaned up the cabin, and waited for the bus. At 8:30 we arrived back at school, a very tired but happy group of girls. Yes, we had a wonderful time. DAISY MAE AND LIL' ABNER DANCE During the fourth week of October everything was hurry and bustle between the contestants of the Daisy Mae contest. The Friday of that week the contest ended. Every penny counted a vote for the candidate. The boys and girls had quite a lot of fun paying out their pennies for their favorite. Friday night, October 26, the dance was held at the school gym. The gym was beautifully decorated in colorful design. Everyone went dressed in all kinds of costumes, from a "negro mammy" to an aged married couple. Prizes were given to the couples most originally dressed. After Daisy Mae had arrived at the dance, she chose her Lil' Abner. A playlet was given by them later on. J We were entertained by skits, all sorts of contests and games sponsored by Miss ones. Sandwiches and sodas were served in the music room. Everyone enjoyed the dance and agreed that the affair was a great success. Page Forty nine Page COMMENCEMENT May 17, 8:00 P.
