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

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
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.

One year ago we entered N.C.T.H.S. 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:

We freshmen started our journey through high school with thirty-
four students emolled. Of course, we were called "green freshies" a lot,
but we took the teasing like good sports. We chose Bobby Spence, Betty
Joyce Gerdes, and Dorothy Moore to represent us on the Student Council.
We are ready to continue our journey in high school and are ready to wel-
come all the "green" things that sprout up next year.

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.

Our aim at the beginning of the school year was to make our band one of the
best. 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.

This fall the student body selected six cheer leaders for the basketball season.
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.
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.

Every Thursday the 72 members of G. A. A.,
which is practically every girl in school, meets in the
gym Some things that the G..A. A. has done this
year are as follows: the initiation of new members
was held this fallg for three days everyone in school
laughed at the queer costumes of the new mem-
bers. Following the initiation a wiener roast was
held on the school ground. At Halloween, the G.
A. A. had a Lil' Abner and Daisy Mae Dance. Every-
one had loads of fun. The members of the G. A. A.
sold subscriptions to the Norris City News. With
this money all of the members plan to take a week-
end trip to Evansville.
This summer we plan to send several girls to
East Bay Camp at Lake Bloomington. Last year we
sent two girls, Gloria Pyle and Kathryn Boyd. The
girls sgent a very enjoyable week and their exper-
ience as made several more hope that they can
go this year. Miss Jones served on the staff as a
crogtnselor, so we were well represented at Bloom-

f f ATHLETICS
KENNETH "KENNY" DOE-RNER. 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.
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
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.
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-
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.
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
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.

As a student enters Room 7 in which the
commercial classes are held, namely, bookkeep-
ing, shorthand, and typewriting, he feels the
presence of a pleasant -business office, and not
a school classroom.
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-
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-

WH ITE COUNTY TOURNAMENT
The White County Basketball Tournament was held this year at Norris City
Township High School. 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.
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
Sandwiches and sodas were served in the music room.
Everyone enjoyed the dance and agreed that the affair was a great success.
