WITH seven letter men as a nucleus and forty men from which to pick a team,
Coach Watt worked together a combination that won nine out of the ten games
played and scored 236 points to its opponents’ 52.
The first game played was with the Lees Summit High at Lees Summit, Missouri.
The team did not show much offensive but the defense was strong. Argentine won
by a 7 to 0 score.
Excelsior High of Excelsior Springs, Missouri, was the opponent in the first home
game. Each team counted two field goals in the first half and the score remained
tied until the last few minutes of play, when Argentine scored two touchdowns and
won 18 to 6.
Argentine defeated De Soto with ease on the De Soto field 60 to 0. De Soto never
threatened to score. Chiefly second string men were used in the second half.
The Blue and Gold team had little trouble in defeating the Spring Hill warriors
by a 31 to 6 score. Spring Hill was the first team to cross the Argentine goal.
The only defeat came at the hands of the Lawrence aggregation. Argentine had
an off day, while Lawrence played its best and won by a 20 to 7 count. The game
was played on the Stadium field at Kansas University.
Argentine played and defeated St. Joseph, Missouri, Central High, one of the best
high school teams in this part of the country. Argentine played its best before the
largest crowd of the season and came out ahead, 20 to 7. St. Joseph did not expect
such strong competition and was taken by surprise.
Paola was the next victim and Argentine hung up another victory, 47 to 0. The
game was played on the Paola field. Second string men were used for the most part.
On Armistice day the strong De La Salle Academy eleven was Argentine’s oppon-
ent. The visitors were the favorites but were defeated 12 to 7. The first half ended
7 to 0 in favor of De La Salle, but Argentine got together and had the punch to win.
Bonner Springs was defeated by a 7 to 0 score. An easy game was expected but
the “Cement City” lads pulled a surprise and made a hard battle of it.
The final game on Thanksgiving Day was with Rosedale on the Rosedale field.
The game was a thriller but Argentine had the edge. The game ended 27 to 6. Rose-
dale scored its only touchdown in the last ten seconds of play.
THIS has been a very successful season for the second team. Two games were
played and both were hard fought from the start to the finish. There were a
number of members of the second team who showed up exceptionally well in the
games and played in practice against the first team. These men should prove to be
good candidates for next year’s team.
Joe Maher played well at fullback position and won the game against Shawnee
Emerald Kennedy, tackle and guard, was fighting every minute of the game. He
played guard in several games with the first team.
Roy Gallup played center and should be the man for the center position next year.
Roy’s passes were good and his defense showed up well in all the games he played.
Charles Salley was a gritty, nervy, little quarterback. No man was too big for
him to attempt to tackle. Before he finishes school he should be a valuable back field
Howard Mitchener played a guard position on both the first and second teams.
Howard should be one of the first-string men next year.
Herbert Metz did not show up so well until the last of the season on end. When
he did he made competition lively for the ends who played on the first team. He
should take “Al” Petersen’s place next year.
Elmer Kirkpatrick played a half-back position. He could always be relied upon
to carry the ball a few yards, if needed, on off tackle smashes. Elmer has the making
of a good half-back.

THIS year’s basket ball team made one of the best records of the school by winning
25 games out of 29. At the start of the season Coach Watt had four letter men
as a nucleus to build around. The team finished its regular season with only one
defeat. Most of the schools played have an enrollment of several times that of
The Blue and Gold warriors opened the season against the Shawnee Mission
basketeers by winning with a 52 to 21 score.
Argentine had little trouble with William Chrisman of Independence, Missouri, and
won a loosely played contest, 41 to 20.
The first game on a foreign court was against the Lawrence team on the Haskell
floor. Argentine had trouble in hitting the basket but won 30 to 17.
One of the best games played on the Argentine court was with the Ottawa High
team. Ottawa led all the way until the last few minutes, when Argentine spurted
and came out in the lead by two points, 35 to 33.
Argentine defeated Lafayette High, St. Joseph, Missouri, by a rally in the final
quarter. The second team played the first half and was several points behind. The
regulars went in and copped a 32 to 21 victory.

of the first quarter.
The Argentine squad had an easy game with the Baldwin team.
A return game with Shawnee Mission ended with a 35 to 18 score.
The first defeat of the season was at the hands of the St. Joseph, Missouri,

Chiefly second string men were used against Gardner. Argentine won by a 32 to
William Chrisman lost its first home game of the season to the Argentine five,

Argentine's second victory over Lawrence was by a 35 to 24 score. The game was
fast and interesting all the way. Most of the Lawrence scores were the result of
Paola was no match for the Blue and Gold team in the game played on the Paola
court. It lost by a 53 to 18 score.
The Argentine offense was working well in the Baldwin game and with the for-
wards making goals from every angle the opponents did not have a chance.
The Lafayette team of St. Joseph was given a 43 to 14 trimming on the Argentine
court. The visitors scored only four points in the last period.
The Richmond, Missouri, team, although outclassed, put up a game fight. Both
teams had trouble in hitting the basket early but Argentine found its range and won,
45 to 11.
Argentine had an easy game with Paola on the Argentine court. The first quarter
ended 23 to 0. The half ended 40 to 4. The seconds finished the game and won, 57

last few minutes, when Argentine spurted and won 31 to 23.
Argentine played I)e La Salle on the Convention Hall court in a game preliminary
to the Hillyard-Schooley game. The game ended in a tie. Argentine won in the play-
off 36 to 28.
The last game of the schedule was with Rockhurst on the Rockhurst court. Rock-
hurst took the lead soon after the start of the game but could not hold it. Argentine
won 37 to 15.
Argentine had little opposition in the Atchison tournament. The first game with
Morrill High was of little interest, Argentine winning 58 to 14. In the second game
the competition was little better and after getting away to a poor start Argentine
won 52 to 22. The final game was with Atchison. Argentine held a six-point lead
at the half and increased the score to 59 to 25.
In the state tournament Argentine won the first game by a forfeit. In the next
round against the Hutchinson quintet Argentine lost a close game 27 to 20. Argentine
could not hit its stride and the opponents were accurate on long shots. Hutchinson
went to the finals in the tournament.
Argentine took second place in the Missouri Valley tournament held at Manhattan.
It defeated in one day three teams representing three states: the first from Valparaiso,
Nebraska, 44 to 23; the second from Shawmee Mission by a 28 to 22 score; and the
third from Ottumwa, Iowa, by a 35 to 15 count. In the game with Ottumwa, Argen-
tine played one of its best games of the year.
Argentine was “off” in the final game and lost to Arkansas City. Arkansas City
made baskets from all over the court and won 46 to 32.

HOMER EVERSOLE, guard.
“Ingy” was a hard, consistent player. His defensive work was the feature of
every game. His place will be hard to fill next year.
JAMES METZ, guard.
“Jim” was Eversole’s running mate. They made a pair that was hard to get by.
Metz was also a good shot. He will graduate this year.
JACK CAMPBELL, forward.
“Jack” was a strong offensive man and also good on defense. He was one of the
best shots on the team. He will be back next year.
NEI) SHIPPER, forward.
“Shiff" alternated with Campbell at forward and played a steady game. He was
in fighting all the time. He will not be back next year.
EDM UN ASH, forward.
“Ed” was the first freshman to earn a basket ball letter. He played a steady
game and was an accurate shot, especially with free throws. He will be back next year.
RALPH HELM REICH, guard.
“Dizz” has played his last year for A. H. S. He was always fighting and was a
hard man to get around. This year he won his second letter in basket ball.
CHARLES PITKIN, guard.
“Pity” was always ready to go into the game and always played a hard game.
He is a Junior and should have little trouble making the team next year.
“Al” has made a great record in high school athletics. He has won nine letters
in the last three years and he has been exceptionally valuable to the football, baseball
and basket ball teams. The A. H. S. will miss him next year but it wishes him success
in college athletics.

3 ccord of Season
ARGENTINE continued to show its superiority over other schools in athletics by
placing a winning baseball team on the field".
Homer Eversole, a member of last year’s team, was elected captain. “Ingy” has
always been a hard player and deserves the honor. Other members of last year’s
team are: Floyd Lynch, James Maher, Ned Shiffer and Albert Petersen.
The first game of the season was against the Rosedale High nine. The contest
was called in the fifth inning because of rain. This gave the Argentine team a 5 to 1
A return game with Rosedale on the Rosedale field resulted in an 18 to 7 victory.
Argentine defeated the Country Day team in the ninth inning 15 to 14 on the Ar-
The following day the Catholic High nine was the victim of a 15 to 9 count.
The Tenth Street Athletic Club was an easy victim for the Blue and Gold squad.
Argentine won 15 to 7.
The best game of the season was with the Smithville aggregation. Argentine
won by a 5 to 3 score.
Argentine had several more games on its schedule but the results are not in
“The Argentian” as it was sent to press before the season ended.
Members of the team are: Homer Eversole, captain and center field; Richard
Weldon, catcher; Owen Schwartzfeger, pitcher; Albert Petersen, first base; Alvin Wil-
son, second base; Floyd Lynch, short stop; Edmun Ash, third base; James Maher,

THE first annual Interstate Contest is to be held in Kansas City, Missouri, May 12,
and the school will be able to put its entire strength in competition with the
other schools of the central states. While we do not know just what our competi-
tors are able to do, still we feel that with the formidable array of wonderfully fine
high school writers the high school will be able to win this contest as easily as the
other contests in which it has competed. This will be the last contest of this school
year and we hope it will prove the nineteenth straight victory for Argentine High.

IN January, 1916, G. C. Brink, through the aid of Dean Kelley of Kansas University,
organized the Kansas State Typewriting Association. Under the auspices of this
association, each year a state meet is held. This school has succeeded in winning
this event seven straight years and establishing the world’s high school records for all
classes in high school competition. The 1922 contest was the largest high school con-
test ever held and a phenomenal high school record of 99 net words a minute was
established by a second-year writer.
This year the school feeling that it had greater worlds to conquer surrendered
its voice in the association and gave its attention to the organization of the Interstate
Association which promises to be the largest and must successful organization of its
kind in the country. Because of 'the change in classification made in the middle of the
school year the school is handicapped to a certain extent in that it is unable to put its
entire strength into the contest. However, it is entering eight writers who will have
an equal show in bringing home the championship. 95e RGENTIRN

parcnt-C cacl)cr -Association
THIS year marks the third anniversary of the Argentine High School Parent-
Teacher Association. It now has a membership of over 250. When it was first
organized in 1920 the officers were: Mrs. Louis Helmreich, president; Miss Franc
Sweet, first vice-president; Mrs. J. P. Edwards, second vice-president; Mrs. Alex Mc-
Clure, secretary; Mrs. Ira Shrauger, treasurer.
This association has backed Argentine high in every contest and endeavor. The
third annual all-school party this year was given under the auspices of the P. T. A.
in co-operation with the student body, the students furnishing the entertainment and
the parents the refreshments. A crowd of over 400 attended.
For the first time, the P. T. A. this year offered a series of prizes to students in
the four classes. A total sum of $200 was spent in the following amounts: Fresh-
man and Sophomore classes, ten $5 prizes each; Junior and Senior classes, one $25,
$15, and $10 prize each. To raise the necessary funds this organization gave a play
entitled, “The Suffragette Convention.” Students, parents and teachers took part.
It was considered one of the outstanding events of the season.
The members of the association who attended the state federation meeting at
Pittsburg were: Mrs. H. L. Halladay, Mrs. W. E. Bishop, Mrs. J. H. McMahon and
Mrs. Burwell Miller. Mrs. Halladay was chosen at a meeting March 5 to represent
the Argentine High School Parent-Teacher Association at the national convention held
at Louisville, Kentucky. The officers elected for the ensuing year are: Mrs. Charles
Bruce, president; Mrs. A. C. Hutchins, first vice-president; Mr. S. C. Paine, second
vice-president; Mrs. Fred Snyder, secretary; Mrs. E. B. Culp, treasurer.
THE Activities Association is an organization of business men of the Argentine
section of the city that helps Argentine High School to fight its “battles” and get
the city backing that such a school must have.
This year it has made its influence felt especially by the support it has given
matters pertaining to the construction of the new building.

'X'HE home room plan of organization was introduced in January, in preparation
for next year when, with the installation of a junior-senior high school, the en-
rollment will probably be more than doubled.
The purpose is to provide a place where teachers and students can meet on a
mutually helpful and sympathetic basis.
Students are grouped according to £heir classification and assigned to certain rooms
where the teacher in charge acts as advisor, writes excuses for absence and makes
It is to form the basis of a student council to be organized later.
THE Hooters’ Club was organized this year by a group of nine girls who felt that
more enthusiasm should be shown by the other students of the school. These officers
were elected: Helen Enright, president; Velma House, vice-president; Nadine Miller,
secretary; Margaret Erwin, treasurer. The other members are: Olive Butcher, Marie
Culp, Louise Chamberlin, Elizabeth Willson, Lois Hutchins. The club was very active
at all the athletic events of the year, and did much toward promoting interest in
American Legion Contest
JACOB ROSEN, ’24, won first place for Argentine High School in the American
J Legion essay contest conducted in the city, by Wyandotte Post No. 83.
The subject of the essay was, “The Requirements of Good Citizenship for One
of My Age and Class.”
Five hundred papers were submitted in the contest.
The first social event of the year was the alumni homecoming, October 13, which
took the form of a hike in which students and alumni participated.
A contest in selling football tickets determined what classes should provide “eats”
for the all-school hike, November 22. The junior and sophomore classes were the
quests of the freshmen and seniors.
BANQUETS FOR ATHLETES.
A series of banquets was given during the year in honor of the athletic teams.
On December 8, Dr. D. E. Clopper entertained the football team at his home.
This was the fourth consecutive banquet he has given football teams. He celebrated
his birthday by banqueting the basket ball team at Gilmore’s Restaurant. In May
he gave another banquet for the basket ball team.
An oyster stew was given the football squad by coaches L. L. Watt and V. D.
Keyes as the fulfillment of a promise of such an event if the Argcntine-De La Salle
game proved a victory.
Others who gave dinners in honor of the teams were, Mrs. Mary E. Helmreich
and Mrs. H. L. Halladay.
JOURNALISM-HONOR SOCIETY BANQUET.
The Buzzer staff and Honor Society gave a banquet at the school February 17.
All details were carried out to be suggestive of newspaper work.
“A” CLUB BANQUET.
The annual banquet of the “A” Club was given May 4 at Unity Inn.
The junior-senior banquet took place May 18 at Unity Inn. All money spent
on the occasion was earned by the junior class.

Matinee Sunday, 2:15; 4:00
You cant go wrong.
To follow the throng
About the hour of seven;
You'll lose the blues,
From hat to shoes,
And dream you are in Heaven
We all have seen.
Upon the screen,
A picture worth our trouble;
Or laughed until
We've laughed our fill.
And stretched our waistbands double.
A gorgeous line
Is sure to greet our focus
Not just a chunk
Of modern bunk
Or dreamy hocus-pocus.
bo when you find
No ties to bind.
But find your mind at worry
Take cents; a score.
Flag through the door;
Belief comes in a hurry.
U hen I m away.
Where business is more flourishing
Do not be loath.
To act for both.
With tickets to the Pershing.

We know a man that has a pull.
That causes pain and trouble;
Hut when he's pulling for the school.
His pull is even double.
We like to see a man of brain.
Do things we can't forget;
With sense enough to leave the rain.
When he is getting wet.
IT hen e'er he sees a forward pass.
His nerves are so intense;
He hits Doc Clopper and alas.
He knocks him o'er the fence.
Now Doctor House is really good.
We know he's for the best;
So please excuse this devilish mood.
And take it as a jest.
