Three years have passed since the Student Assembly finished drawing up its constitution and working out plans for governing the Stu- dent Body. Russell Patrick served as President for the first year, Earl O'Rourke the second. This year, the results of the campaign for offices were: Herb Duncan, president: Helene Martin, vice-president: Sally Stabenow, secretary: and Sally Williams, treasurer. Since the time of its organization, two faculty members have been sponsors, Mr. Gordon and Miss Smith organ- ized the body, and now Mr. LaVal has relieved Mr. Gordon. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS PROM COMMITTEE After the election, officers and members were installed in an assembly, and regular meetings were begun. To carry out the work of the Student Assembly, five main committees and any necessary temporary ones were ap- pointed by the President. The Building and Grounds Committee under Iacqueline Cheney improved conditions in and around the school building throughout the year. Many interesting and educational assemblies were given for the students as a result of the work done by the Assembly Committee, headed by Lois Jeanne Davis. Betty Buehrle and the Social Committee did a wonderful job of providing the school with SERVICE COMMITTEE SOCIAL COMMITTEE ur ficerfs xecu f e SUAL l,EE'I' TO RIGHT, Miss Srni'h, S, Shberiow, Durcfria, Mar':r2, S Williams, Mr. l'lV'rl. a social program that provided everyone with a year of fun. The Iunior-Senior Prom Commit- tee, led by Bob Gordon, made the annual Prom one of the best in the history of the schccl. To inform everyone of the events of the year, the Publicity Committee made posters and worked hard with lack McKinney, the chair- man, to keep interest high. A questionnaire was distributed by the Edu- cational Committee, under ferry Smith, to find what the student reaction to the present social program was, what kind of additional activities would be in order, and a number of other signi- ficant facts about student interest and partici- EDUCATICN COMMI'I'I'EE PUELICITY COMMITTEE pation in school activities. Behind the scenes, Mr. Watson sponsored the reviewing and show- ing of films for the school. Chairman of the Vis- ual Education Committee, Howard Gardner, furnished a remarkable service. The job of publishing the student-faculty di- rectory went to the "Whos Who" book com- mittee, and that of collecting funds for CARE to another special committee. Over one hundred dollars was donated and used to relieve suffer- ing families in Europe. Much work has been done by this organiza- tion during its brief existence, and the Assembly hopes to continue it in the future.

They have worked with a good deal of initiative which results are shown in their accomplishments. Iunior candy sales, an annual project, are conducted to raise money tor the Iunior-Senior Prom held at the Gatesworth Hotel on May 28. The proceeds have exceeded last years by sev- eral hundred dollars. Mrs. DeMersseman, the sponsor, has found the candy committee a very industrious groupg they are Iackie Hubert, Bar- bara Meyer, Roy Gillham, Marlene Weigel, Page Twent Hopie Williams, Tom Skinker, and Bob Gordon. Mr. Gordon, Miss Smith, and Mrs. Delviersse man, chairman, sponsored the Prom committee. Departing from tradition the Iuniors have re' sponsibility of ordering their class rings early. Marilyn Ottinger was elected chairman, Besides being busy with committees, the junior girls won the softball and basketball tournaments. The junior boys Won all intra- murals. Each year the Lions Club honors an outstanding junior boy by sending him to Boys' State at Ietferson City, and the Women's Legion Auxiliary sponsors a junior girl to Girls' State. y-Six Leadership ordinarily begins in the sopho- more class where several activities offer oppor- tunities for distinction. Each year one girl who does outstanding work is sent on a Sophomore Pilgrimage to Ietferson City by the 8th District Missouri Federation of Womens Clubs. Other girls volunteer to sell poppies each year for the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Sport activities claim lfVe had the enthusiasm many sophomore boys, especially "B" Basket ball. At its annual backward dance, the G.A.A. extends an honorary membership to the out- standing boy. This year l2l students compose the sophomore class, Bl girls and BU boys. Mr. Gordon serves as their counselor and advisor. This class certainly has developed the type ot school spirit that holds a class together.

From the time the first four year course of study was instituted until recent years, tour years of English were required tor graduation. When other new requirements were added the English requirement was reduced to three years. The pre-sent requirement is at least three years. Latin has been taught since the beginning ot the school and at one time was a highly reconirnended subiect. Several years ago a modern language :vas added to the available subjects, In i945 a course Ln schocl publications and Journalism was added to the curriculum. The English departments :nain goal is to develcp in the students the ability to put into practical use the essentials ct English grammar. To develcp and enrich the knowledge ct the wr1tten language, a literature text is studied in ccnnecrion with all the English courses, and book reports are required from all students. Composition writing is required of all English stu- dents tnat the ability to write interesting articles will be sirengthf ened. The ccznpcsiticn work develops more trom year to year. iinally ending in fi tive-thousand word research theme written .ri thesgs style. in Latin the course of study is typical of all Latin aourses. There is niuch time applied fo the study ot word forms, ararnrnar, and translation. The most important thing that stu dents learn from the study cf Latin is the granzmar and the words which n the background tor mach ot cur cwn language, 'When much attention was tuned to the Pan-American re- lations, the modern language was :hanged to Spanish. For several years only one year of Spanish was offered, but twr: years ago a second year was added. PCQY: Thirty 4 .TL ocia Si encefi Since the beginning of the high school, the social science department has been very important in the program of study. At first the courses offered were American n1story and world history. Since that time, the course has been expanded to ins clude citizenship, sociology, economics, government, inter- national relations, and psychology. The requirement for gradu- ation in the social sciences has been three units for several years. These three units will include citizenship, American history, and world history. The citizenship course is a course intended to give the students a basis tor carrying the responsibilities ot citizenship in a democratic government. This :ourse is pnrnarily designed for freshmen. Both history courses are graduation reaotirernents which have for their airn the understanding the historical background ct our present life and problems. American h1story deals with the development of our nation. Vtfcrld history deals wgth the development of civilization from the beginning with the accent of the more recent events. Sociology is a study of the problems of Changing human relations, Much time in this course is devotec to study ot spe- cial projects, Sociology is a one-halt ungt course which is 'ol- lowed by economics. Economics is a course in the problems ot productions and consumption oi goods: i' 'noludes a study of the ways in which people rnalce a living. The governrnent and international relations courses are usually halt unit courses, but this year both are stuaiea together in the second semester. They are courses dealing with the operation and relations ot governments in the world. 'cf Tnzrty-Cne WafAemafic5 The mathematics department has been in existence since the high school was first organized. The primary purpose of the mathematics department is to give the students a hacks ground of basic mathematics to he.p them it they go on to college or to prepare thern for the use ot common business rnathematics. One unit ot study is required in this department tor graduationg this can he either elementary algebra cr general rnatliematics. For the people that wish ta go on ta more ad' variced study at mathematics, courses in plane geometry, adf vanced algebra, trigoncrnetry, and solid tgecrnetry are otterea. General rnatnematics is a course which is a :rore ad- variced continuation of grade schrgol arithrnetic with practical Lrpplications. lt is prirnarily intended tcr the slower students wlirlv do not need algehrgi, This lQTjlll'i5Q is not open tr studenls who have had algehra.

Solid geometry is very similar to plane geometry except that it involves Figures in space instead ot in a plane. Page Th:rty'Two cience Science has been one of the rn.ain division of the curriculum since the early years of the high school. When the high school was first organized, courses were offered in botany and physics. As the years have gone by and the importance of the study of science has increased, the science department has been en- larged and changed. Though only one credit is required for graduation, there are four courses offered. lt is preferred that a student present credit in one of the three laboratory sciences instead of general science. The laboratory sciences are bi- ology, chemistry, and physics. General science is a course designed primarily for fresh- men. lt is a course which is intended to give a fairly complete view of the whole field of science. ln general science a student is given a chance to form a good idea concerning the various fields of science and the importance of each one. Biology is a general course in the science dealing with the life processes in plants and animals. The laboratory work in- volves making several drawings, the use of the microscope, and some dissection. Usually one semester is spent in the study of plants, and one semester is spent in the study of animals. Chemistry is a study of the composition of all matter and the laws governing chemical combinations and reactions. Most of the course is devoted to the study of the general laws of chenxstry with special emphasis on inorganic chemistry. Some special work is devoted to the study of organic chemistry near the end of the year. Physics is a study of the basic physical laws involved in the actions of solids and fluids, rnechanics heat, light, sourgd, and electricity. As in cheniistry all laws are substantiated by actual work in the laboratory. 'T ,4 uw rfri The fine arts division of the curriculum has only recently been established as a separate part of the curriculum. For many years some of the courses which are now included in the fine arts portion of the curriculum were placed in other classifications. Recently a separate requirement for graduation has been established in the field of fine arts. One unit of work is required: this may be from any one of several classes, music literature, drarnatics, or art ln the field of music, there are the instrumental groups and the chorus. There are two instrumental groups which are open to any student who has a knowledge of any instrument. The band is composed of wind instruments and a percussion sec tion. The orchestra is composed of many members of the band and several others who play stringed instruments. The chorus is a group of mixed voices which offers good training in group singing to any one who is interested in learning. Literature is a full unit course which is devoted entirely to the study of the literature of the world. The course covers two units of study: one semester is devoted to the study of English literature and the other is devoted to the study of mod- ern literature of the world, The dramatics class is concerned with the study of two things, dramatics and public speaking. Students learn the art of declarnation and other phases of public speaking. ln their study of dramatics they learn a little about all phases of the production of a play, but special emphasis is placed on the art of acting. ln art students usually take no more than two years, but some have taken three or four years. Art is the study of the pictorial representation of ideas and the mechanics of drawing. Page Thirty-Four racfica! .fdrb The division of practical arts is a relatively new one in the high school curriculum. The first courses in domestic and industrial arts were authorized for the school year of l94O-194l. Since that time these courses have been enlarged and improved greatly. The purpose of this division of the curriculum is to train the students in some practical work which will assist them through the practical knowledge rather than through theory, such as is taught in many typical high school courses. One unit is required in this field for graduation. ln the field of commercial arts, courses are offered in typ' ing, shorthand, and bookkeeping. Typing is designed to give the student a basic knowledge of the fundamental processes in typing. Instruction is also given in the proper forms to be used in typing for commercial work. Shorthand is a course designed to give the students a basic knowledge of Gregg short- hand. In the first year students learn the basic forms, in the second year the basic forms are applied to dictation and trans- cription. Bookkeeping is intended to give a knowledge of the fundamentals of commercial bookkeeping. ln the home economics courses the accent is placed on two phases of the work, cooking and sewing. The basic aim in home economics is to prepare the girls for the career of keeping a home. ln industrial arts there are two distinct courses offered at the high school, shop and mechanical drawing. For many years, the shop course was altogether a course in woodwork- ing, but recently the work has been enlarged to include some metal work. The first year shop students receive instruction in the use of the simple hand tools: the second year students receive instruction in the use of power machinery. Mechanical drawing is a study of the graphic language of engineersg it is description by drawings and accompanying notes. Page Thirty-Five f E HN l9Ag5ica! glcluca fion Since the beginning of the high school the physical edu- cation department has grown from nothing to the point where it plays a very important part in the life of many students. One unit is required in physical education and one-half unit is re- quired in health for graduation. The course in physical educa- tion is a one-third unit course which meets on alternate days. The basic goal of the physical education department is the development of physical endurance and muscular co-ordina- tion. The health course is designed to teach the fundamentals of hygiene and elementary physiology. The area of interscholastic athletics is closely co-ordinated with the ordinary physical education classes. In the field of interscholastic athletics, boys can participate in football, base- ball, wrestling, basketball, and track. The boys' physical education classes are for the most part devoted to the participation in several sports and games. Us- ually at the end of the season for a sport, intramural tourna- ments are conducted to determine the physical education class champions. In the girls' classes participation in sports is still important, but more emphasis is placed on body building exer- cises. From very small beginnings the facilities for physical edu- cation have grown until the high school has a good athletic field, all-weather tennis courts, a good gymnasium, and a va- riety of equipment for the best particiption in a Wide variety of sports. The physical education department maintains periodical testing of vision and hearing. Special cases are referred to the Health Counselor for further consultation and diagnosis. Iuniors and seniors are given X-ray tests under the auspices of the County Tuberculosis Society. The health class is intended for the sophomore physical education classes. Sa 4 e Thxty Six eruicefs ln recent years the number of student services have been growing steadily as well as faculty services to the students. In the way of improved student services several groups were formed: these were the cafeteria assistants, office assistants, library assistants and the projector staff. The faculty assistance to the students comes in the form of a better vocational and educational guidance program. The Student Assembly com- mittees have also been of great value in the planning and operation of many activities at the school. The projector staff was organized by the student assembly about three years ago. Its purpose is to relieve the teacher of the responsibility of handling the movie projector and similar equipment. The library assistants assist the librarian by check- ing out the books and assisting in other ways. The office as- sistants help with the routine work in the office. The student assistants in the cafeteria assist with the serving of the food and with the cleaning up after the lunch period. For several years a plan has been in operation for the guidance and assistance of seniors who desire to attend col- lege. In conjunction with this program the Ohio State Scholastic Aptitude test has been given to all seniors for several years. All seniors have been assisted in their application for college by a senior counselor. From this program of senior counseling has growr, the new plan for vocational guidance in all grades. Through a series of tests the vocational guidance counselors can find a students interests and abilities. By applying this infcrrnaticn the coun- selor can advise the student regarding his vocation and edu- cation. C .

Loehrer, Lotlmun, Poor, Pace Fmty The baseball team of this year wasted no time getting started as they began practice the first day of school. The team was under the able leadership of coach Aleck Burgess. He had four lettermen: pitcher, Captain Stan Bren- ner: catcher, Gene Loehrerg third baseman, Glenn Christopher: and shortstop, Ken Stan- field. Then as the first game approached, Roy Meyer took over second base, Frank Marriott, Bob Van Reed, and Ed Lottman filled in the out- field and Fred Nash was on first base. The team opened its season on September 12 against Berkeley. This proved to be an easy victory as they won 9-l with Mr. Burgess using everyone on the squad. Then, in their second game, the Comets met their old nemesis, River- view, who gave them their worst loss, a hard- fought 4-l game. Next came lennings, whom they defeated l-O in a pitcher's battle. The Ferguson team then played our usual grudge game with Riverview, who, as they had done before, beat us this time 3-l. Fairview, a team Ferguson can usually handle, downed us 6-4. With our hitting shoes on, we then massacred Pattonville 13-5 and came back two days later to smother Berkeley 14-O. Ferguson in its last two games lost a heartbreaking 7-5 game to Eureka and a disappointing 4-3 tilt to Fairview. These last two contests gave us a 4-5 "won-lost" record. The odd thing about our losing more games than we won, was the fact that we outscored our opponents in run production 5l-30 for a 21-run margin. For the third straight season Ferguson occupied the second place spot in the North County standing. With all but two of this year's regulars and great freshmen and sopho- more prospects, Ferguson is hoping for several first place positions in the North County League.

CHRISTOPHER BECKER BRENNER NASH Page Fcriy-Two When Ferguson corrxpleted this years bas ketball season it ended the twenty-third sched- .ile of Ferguson auintets. ln twenty-three years, Ferguson has had four coaches. The first was Fred Schultz, who was also principal of Fergu- son High. He started coaching in 1925. During his time the Ferguson Tourney was inaugur- ated. At the beginning of the 1939-1940 season he was succeeded by Bently Bolin. When Mr. Bolin went into the service he was followed by Walter Smith for one year. Then Aleck Burgess, a former member of Ferguson's first team, took over coaching chores until the 1946-47 season, when Mr. Bolin resumed his chores. Coach Bently Bolin with a nucleus of five lettermen Captain Glenn Christopher, lim McKown, Marvin Haddox, Bob Becker and Stan Brenner gave Ferguson its first 500 average team in six years. From this aspect we had a fairly successful season. With only seven days' practice the Comets opened their season with a 47-29 victory over Eureka in the Bayless Tour- ney. Then in their first home game they easily beat Berkeley 40-33. With Becker leading the way, Ferguson beat McKinley and lennings and lost to Riverview to give them a 4-2 record before the Christmas holidays. Ferguson then lost to Fairview 41-33 which proved to be their worst defeat for the remainder of the season. The Bolinmen then took an easy 60-35 game from Pattonville, the North County Member. Working up to the Ferguson Tournament, the Comets lost two thrilling ball games to Blewett and Biverview by scores of 58-52 and 38-34, re- spectively. We then entered our own tourney, seeded fourth, with Bayless, Riverview, and Hancock seeded first, second and third, respec- tively. Making cur debut the second night we defeated Affton 45-33. Then we created the up- set of the tourney by downing first seeded Bay less 43-41 and entered the finals of the Tourna- rnent. lt was the first time the Comets had gotten to the finals since Coach Bo1in's team of 1942 won the tourney. We then lost a heartbreaking 43-39 game to Hancock in the finals. The Fergu- son boys lost four of their last seven games. Their season was wound up in the subregion- '1s with a 45-40 loss to Blewett, to give our over- .rll a ten and ten record.

FIRST ROW: Smopole, Grosshemder, Carson, Skmlcer, Chnsfopher, Ambrow, Lorenz, Soles, D. Albm, Ehrman, Becker, Munroe, MfKe-P, POQP Fcrty Four In its first varsity football season in 22 years, Ferguson had a fairly successful year. They were under the able coaching of ex-Washington U star, Bill Pufalt. The coach had a foundation of eight lettermen: D. Fulbright and M. Ambrow, co-captains: Bob Lorenz, Dave Albin, Iim Mc- Kown, Ed Carson, Torn Skinker, Art Soles, and the team's leading scorer, Bob Becker. As the first game neared, Tome Munroe and Glenn Christopher, seniors, broke into the line-up with iunior, Bob Erhman. The team worked from a T-formation on offense and used a six and five man line on defense, switching to a seven and eight when opponents were at the goal. The team had a seven game schedule with no soft touches in it. They opened their season against a strong suburban team, Bitenour. The Ferguson Gridders lost their game 21-U, but did not succumb without a fight. In the second ball game, they Won from a small but fast DeSoto team, 13-O. Then, in their first home game, the Comets lost a disappointing 13-7 game to St. Charles. Ferguson was the first to score, but they just couldn't keep up the pace, losing on a touchdown in the last quarter. Then playing against teams which didn't seem to outclass them, they were decisively beaten by Roxana, 13-O and Principia, 20-O. The gridmen from Ferguson then outfought a stub- born Wellston team for their second win by a score of l3-7. Then, playing the St. Louis area's only undefeated team, Western Military Acad- emy, the home gridders were very decisively beaten 41-0 in their last game. The team is to be congratulated on its fight and spirit which we hope the coming Ferguson teams will pos- sess. It is felt by all that with experience, Fergu- son can produce some good football teams. We hope so. Page Forty-Five wafcA fAQl'l'l 90 L...
