Highway 24 ” Independence, MO 64050 ry Branch GE Jffomuorli In this volume of The Argentian, the members of the staff have tried to record the things accom- plished by the school during the year. Seven tribes of the Shawnces are said to have dwelt on seven hills between Argentine and Turner. The largest was near White Feather spring, which spring got its name from White Feather, an Indian prophet who is buried nearby. LiBRARyA Ijaiunee IGnjenii After the great flood, an Indian woman lived in a valley, with a hill intervening between her and her white brother, over which she could see the smoke rise from the white man’s wig' warn. When the sense of loneliness came over her, she began to weep bitterly. A heavenly messenger ap' peared and asked her why. She told him that the Great Spirit had left her white brother his family, but she was alone. "Remember how the first man was made,” said the visitor, and then left. From this, she knew that a new creation was meant, so, she made small images from the earth as the Great Spirit had made the first man, but when she saw that they had no life she again wept. A second time her messenger appeared and inquired the cause of her grief. "Remember,” he said, "how the Great Spirit did when the first man was made.” At once, she understood, and breathed into their nostrils and they all became alive. This was the beginning of the red men, according to the Shawnees. It :is fabled that in a cavern near White Feather Spring are the skeletons of a dead Indian tribe and gold and silver beyond realization, but the treasure is not to be had by white men until they can learn to use it in the right way.

Wagon trains started in 1824 between Independence, Missouri, and Santa Fe, New Mexico, initiated “the commerce of the prairies” over the Santa Fe trail, the most noted wagon and pack-train highway in history. This was later supplanted by the Santa Fe rail- road. 1 w M M, — — By the spring of 1856 the people of Kansas were warming up in the fight for state' hood. Eastern Kansas was the scene of seven years of raiding and countcr'raiding, in border strife. Much of this took place in the district between Kansas City and Lawrence. fcoitor....................ittarir Sjiatt S’orrrla iCillian fflay (£rril Hirtur Hfran laitatttPBB iflanagrr.

There is only one we claim, Deserving of the name: Chorus: Now, you laddies, lassies, listen, It’s Argentine; Argentine with its colors so true. We are thinking of you always, dear Argentine, Argentine with its Gold and Blue. It's our pride upon the hillside, Where we work with will, and win. Now, you laddies, lassies, listen, It’s Argentine, Argentine that can make all things spin. Fourteen Many pioneers came to Kansas by way of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to St. Louis and thence up the Missouri to the Kansas. The landing point for “interior Kansas" was Wyandotte, where the boats connected with stage lines.  I  mf rgenfid ®t|p § uj.tprttttpn i ttts nf grbnnla The Kansas City school system has in- creased from nine grade schools and one high school in 1886, to fifty-one grade schools, seven high schools and one junior college in 1926. The number of teachers has increased from fifty-six to six-hundred-fifty-four. The average daily attendance at present is: elementary schools, 13,225; junior high schools 2,810; senior high schools, 2,251; kindergar- ten, 676. M. E. Pearson, superintendent of schools, has watched and directed this development. He is one of the outstanding educators of the state and has placed the work of the schools on a high standard. M. E. PEARSON Superintendent F. L. Schlagle, assistant superintendent of Kansas City schools, was formerly principal of Argentine high school. Under his direction the work of the school was raised to a high standard and the school exceeded all of its former records of achieve- ment. It was at this time that it was made a junior- senior high school. In 1924 he was appointed to his present position, in which he is doing much to ad- vance the interests of the school system. F. L.

Watt, coach, came to Argentine high school in 1919, from Grinned College, Grinned, Iowa, after having starred in athletics there. His seven-year record with the school is: Football, 60 games won and 9 lost; basket ball, 148 games won and 27 lost. Coach Watt has developed such athletes as Albert Petersen, '23, who has been a member of the Kansas University championship basket ball quintet for two years. This year he was high scorer in the Missouri Valley conference, and was picked as All-Valley center. L. L. WATT V. D. Keyes, assistant coach, came to Argen- tine in 1922. He is a graduate of Southwestern College, Winfield, Kansas, where he won fame as an all-round athlete. In track he held state records for a number of years. He is head track coach. Under his direction, Edmun Ash, '26, won two first places in the national meet at Chicago last spring. v. D. KEYES R. I. Brown came to Argentine in 1924. He is a graduate of Friends University, Wichita, Kansas, where he was athletic director in 1921- 22. He was all-state fullback of the Kansas Conference three years. He has been a great aid to Mr. Watt and Mr. Keyes in turning out successful athletic teams. R. I. BROWN Forty-seven -SO?? (Eaptaina Edmun Ash was captain of the 1925 Gold and Blue football team. He piloted the eleven from the quarterback position. He was chosen albcity quarterback and captain on the myth' ical “all teams" selected by each of the news- papers. “Ed" won his fourth football letter this season. During his four years he also won four basket ball letters, two in track and one in baseball. He has won more letters dur ing his school career than any other Argentine high school athlete. mtm EDMUN ASH James Vohs was captain of the 1926 basket ball quintet.

Jffontball i rasnn Seven letter men were among the forty aspirants who answered the opening gridiron call in Argentine high school for the season of 1925. Around these seven men as a nucleus, Coach Watt built the best defensive team in the history of the Argentine high school gridiron sport, and a team that was conceded to be one of the most powerful in the state of Kansas. The eleven picked by Coach Watt won eight of the nine games played, and lost one, scoring 142 points to its opponents' 32. The solitary loss was to the Lafayette high school of St. Joseph, Missouri, by a score of 13 to 12. All of Argentine's scores came in the second quarter, while Lafayette scored two touchdowns and a point after goal in the final period to win the game. The Argentine high eleven opened the season with a 22 to 0 victory over Osa- watomie. Argentine first scored in the first quarter, Ash picking up the ball on a fumble by Osawatomie and racing twenty yards for a touchdown. During the re mainder of the first half, Osawatomie outplayed the Wattites but was unable to score. The rest of the game was all Argentine's. On line plunges, end runs, and passes alike, the Gold and Blue gridders advanced the ball, scoring two touchdowns in the third quarter. Argentine’s final scoring came on a field goal, which added three points. Benton high school of St Joseph, Missouri, was the victim in the first game on the home field. The Benton warriors were defeated October 2, by a 12 to 6 count. The “up'the'river” gridders proved worthy opponents for Coach Watt's combina' Fifty Amitti} ®pam §qttai First Row—C.

Ben- ton scored its touchdown in the second period on an end run after a series of passes had put the ball within scoring distance. Argentine's best playing was done in the third quarter, when both touchdowns were scored. A pass followed by a twenty- yard run, put over the first counter. The second was made on a sixty-yard run by Ash. Argentine fattened the “won-column” October 9, with a win over the Shawnee Mission eleven, by a 12 to 0 count. The Gold and Blue offensive attack was not yet perfected, and only a rally in the last quarter saved Argentine from a tie. The “Indians” showed a surprisingly strong defense, and held the Watt men scoreless throughout the first three quarters. The Blue and Gold would work the ball into scoring distance, only to lose it on downs. In the final period, Argentine scored its first touchdown on eight consecutive line plunges. The second counter was made on a pass over the line after a series of end runs and line plays. The Argentine eleven showed their ability as “Mudders” October 16, in de- feating the DeSoto team, by a 12 to 0 score. The game was played in a steady rain, and the DeSoto gridiron was a sea of mud. In the first quarter a DeSoto punt was blocked and bounded over the line, an Argentine player falling on it for a counter. The second quarter was scoreless, play being for the most part in DeSoto territory. In the third quarter, another touchdown was scored on line plunges and a fake play. Fifty-one 4 The Blue and Gold “got revenge" for a last season’s defeat, October 23, when the Crimson eleven of Central high fell before the Watt men by a count of 14 to 0. A crowd of 4,000 was present to see this battle, a crucial one in the city series. Coach Watt's gridders went into the fray slight favorites, and it took them only a few minutes to prove the “dope” correct. The first quarter was scoreless, with Ar- gentine having a slight edge over the Centralites. In the second period, after Argen- tine failed to gain around the end, a place kick was tried, but failed. A penalty gave Argentine the ball on the fifteen-yard line with three minutes to play. Two passes were incomplete; but the third attempt resulted in a counter. The second touchdown was made in the third quarter from the same point on the field and on the same play. Central opened up with an aerial attack in the final period, but failed to gain. The game ended with Argentine in possession of the ball. The team piled up its biggest score of the season October 30, when it defeated the Paola eleven by a count of 27 to 7. The Paola team fought hard but was no match for the Blue and Gold. The Watt men used a speedy and varied style of attack that baffled their opponents. The first two quarters were all Argentine’s. One counter was made in the first period and four were made in the second, passes being responsible for the majority of the gains. Paola held the upper hand during the last half, the Argentine regulars having been replaced by reserves. Paola scored its only counter in the last quarter, on a fifty-yard run after having intercepted an Argentine pass. The strong Rockhurst academy team was defeated on the home field November 13, by a score of 12 to 6. The Argentine team displayed its best form of the season in winning its seventh straight victory. In the first quarter, the academy team seemingly held the upper hand, having possession of the ball in Argentine territory most of the time, but lacking the scoring punch. Rockhurst scored its points in the second quarter, when a touchdown was made on line plays. Following this, the Watt men opened up an aerial attack which resulted in a touchdown, and the half ended with the score tied at 6-all. Argentine's second counter came in the third quarter, after a series of passes and end runs. The only defeat of the season came November 20, at the hands of Lafayette high school of St. Joseph, Missouri, on the Lafayette field by a 13 to 12 count. The defeat was unexpected as the St. Joseph aggregation was not considered formid- able. After outplaying their opponents completely during the first three quarters of the game, the Argentine gridders fumbled the victory away in the final period. The first and third quarters were scoreless. Both of Argentine’s counters came in the second period. In the final quarter an Argentine fumble on the one-yard line was recovered by a Lafayette player and carried across for a touchdown. Later in the period, Lafayette recovered another fumble and on line smashes and end runs carried the ball across for a second counter. A try for goal was successful, netting the winning point. The city championship title was won by the Argentine eleven “Turkey Day” when it defeated the Rosedale gridiron team by a score of 19 to 0. The first Argen- tine score came in the second quarter on a pass. Captain Ash put a fitting finish to his high school gridiron career, when in the third quarter he ran back a punt fifty yards for a touchdown. The final counter came in the fourth quarter on straight line plays. The game was the last on the schedule. Coach Watt took the team to Villisca, Iowa, December 4, for a post-season game with the Villisca high school squad, but a snow storm and blizzard forced the contest to be cancelled. Villisca is Coach Watt’s home town. The Villisca team holds a clean record for the past two years, not having been defeated during that time.Fifty-four Firs: Row—Flower. Ed. Kennedy. Kelley.

The Argentine high school basket ball team finished the season of 1925'26 Feb' ruary 27, with a record of fourteen victories and four defeats out of the eighteen games played. Two of the losses were to the strong Ottawa team; one was to Cen' tral high, Kansas City, Kansas; and the other, to the Olathe quintet. The Blue and Gold quintet amassed 498 points to its opponents' 289 in the eighteen games played. The team fought hard and worked together throughout the season, the play at times being executed with a vim and dash denoting “real class.” Argentine started the season right by winning from the Excelsior Springs, Mis' souri, quintet December 22, by a 32 to 17 count. The Topeka team was defeated in a hard game December 31, by a score of 23 to 19. The next three games were easy victories for the Wattites, the opponents scoring but 23 points in the three contests. The first defeat of the season came January 16, at the hands of Central high, Kansas City, Kansas, on the Crimson court. The Argentine team was sadly off form and lost, 14 to 17. The Richmond, Missouri, cagers gave the Wattmen a hard battle January 22, but lost by a score of 22 to 26. Argentine won from Benton high, St. Joseph, Mis- souri, January 23, by a 40 to 19 count. Rosedale proved easy for the Blue and Gold hoopsters January 26, who gave it the small end of a 35 to 24 score in a game on the Mt. Marty court. Argentine avenged a football defeat January 30, swamping Lafayette high, St. Joseph, Missouri, under a 41 to 13 score. fClrg en tia i Wa Osawatomie fell before the Blue and Gold February 5, by a 29 to 10 count and Argentine showed unexpected brilliance in humbling the powerful Olathe quin- tet by a 31 to 10 count on the home court February 6. Ottawa, however, handed the Watt machine its second defeat of the season February 9, winning a hard-fought game by a score of 14 to 11. Central high school, Omaha, Nebraska, was defeated on the home court Feb' ruary 13, by a 38 to 20 count. Rosedale again fell a victim of the Watt mens speed February 19, taking the small end of a 25 to 18 count. On February 20, Argentine journeyed to Olathe and was defeated by a score of 28 to 13. The Crimson five of Central high stepped on the Argentine court February 23, prepared to clinch the city championship. Argentine was in form this time, how- ever, and the game soon took on a decidedly Gold and Blue hue. The Watt men scored on almost every try, leading by a 29 to 13 count at the final whistle. Ottawa again defeated the Argentine hoopsters February 27, in a hard-fought contest, by a score of 22 to 20. Ottawa won on free throws, each team scoring an equal number of field goals. This was the last game of the season for the Watt men. RECORD OF THE SEASON .. 17 A. FI. S 33 19 A. H. S 23 . 4 A. H. S 42 Jan. 9—Southwest. K. C., Mo 5 A. H. S 27 14 A. H. S 21 Jan. 16—Central, K.

The “A” club is an organization founded by and consisting of young men who have earned one or more first team letters in any of the high school's four major sports: football, basket ball, baseball or track. This club was organized in 1920 to promote athletics, to secure a closer co'opera' tion among the members of the teams and of the student body, to insure the success of the teams by aiding them in any way possible, to create an interest of fellow students and townspeople in attending the games played by the teams, and to culti' vate and promote true, clean sportsmanship in the high schools. Each year the club gives an entertainment. The money collected in this way goes to pay for the banquet which is given every year by the club. The requirements for entrance to the club are: for football, playing fifteen full quarters in first team games during the season; in basket ball, playing in two'thirds of the games of the season; in baseball, forty'five innings are required, and in track one first and two second places in dual meets are required or placing first, second or third in any event at the state meets.

The advanced class is divided into two divisions, the upper, or third year students, and the lower, or second year students. The third year students are taken from the second year students of the previous year, and the second year students are advanced from the beginning class of the year before. The class has organized a Press Club, to which members are admitted only after meeting certain requirements. The Press Club makes it possible to get a letter in journalism by earning a total of one thousand points in the school year. The points are given for various types of work, and are very hard to obtain. The Press Club gives an annual banquet for its members. This year about twenty-three guests and thirty-eight members attended. OFFICERS OF THE PRESS CLUB.

The purpose of an annual is to bind together a record of all the activities of the school year. The Argentian for the last three years has been given an alhAmerican rating at the National Contest held by the Central Inter'Scholastic Press Association at the Uni' versity of Wisconsin. Last year it won first place in the state contest held by the Kansas State Agricultural College at Manhattan, Kansas, and received a loving cup from the Art Crafts Guild in Chicago. In 1920 the first annual under the title “Argentian,” was published. The idea originated with F. L. Schlagle, who was principal of Argentine high school at that time. STAFF.

The purpose of the National organization is to create an enthusiasm for scholar ship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character. Not more than fifteen per cent of a senior class is eligible for membership. Five per cent of the junior class is eligible during the last month of the sixth semester. Those chosen must have a scholarship rank in the first fourth of their re- spective classes. Argentine high school also has an honor roll to which sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible and to which students are elected each six weeks. The names of thirty students have been on it some time this year. SENIORS. JUNIORS. SOPHOMORES.

The Junior High School Honor Society was organized in 1924. Membership is based upon the four following qualities: Character, service to the school, leader' ship and scholarship. Membership in the organization is limited to twenty'five members, ten students from the ninth grade, eight students from the eighth grade, seven students from the seventh grade. The purpose of the association is to establish a high standard for scholarship, to offer opportunities for aiding the school, to develop character in the students, and to assist in the promotion of leadership so as to aid the school as a whole. Eligibility is determined by a majority vote of the faculty. An active member in the society must retain the standard work during each six weeks. If a member should fail in any of the requirements, he is given the opportunity as a suspended member to regain his position in the organization. The president of the society is chosen from the ninth grade; the vice-president from the eighth grade, and the secretary-treasurer from the seventh grade. Miss Bess Wilhite is sponsor of the society.

This year is the first time a student council has been organized in Argentine high school. The purpose of the council is to provide student participation in the adminis' trative policies of the high school; bring about closer cooperation between faculty and student body, and secure a medium on questions which should be agreeable to the faculty and students. The council helps make the laws and see that they are enforced. Some of the problems of the council: To unify all the school activities; im terpret ideals and standards of conduct; and to sponsor the annual school exhibit. Membership consists of representatives from all vital factors in the school, such as: All class presidents, president of Girl Reserves, president of Booster Club, presh dent of “A” Club, editordivehief of the paper, president of Girls' Athletic Club, business manager of the paper, cditoHivchief of the annual, business manager of the annual.

Schlagle, principal of the school at that time, was the founder and organizer of the club. He chose nine girls and put the club into their hands. The constitution of the club states that at no time can the membership exceed twelve members. This year the membership is twelve. At the end of the year, each girl graduating from school recommends one girl in the school to take her place in the club. If the girl meets with the favor of all members of the club, she becomes a member. No one can be a member with one vote against her. This year the club with the help of the school bought uniforms. They consist of white and blue sweaters, powder blue skirts and white and blue caps. OFFICERS. Josephine McMahon ....Margaret Bruce ........Edith Dillon President.......... Vice-President.....

Although, when first organized, it consisted of only a few prominent men in Argentine, it boasts now of one hundred and forty members, who wish to make Argentine a better place in which to live. ! The association meets in the Argentine library twice a month to discuss the prob' lems which arise. When a complaint is to be made to the city, a committee is ap' pointed which goes to the head of the department to which the complaint is to be made. The association is always willing to help the school in anything it undertakes. It was chiefly through it, that the bleachers were erected at the athletic field. It has done a great deal in regard to city improvements. It was through it that Metropolitan avenue was paved to Turner and from Turner it is being paved to Hollb day. The Turner road was paved from Metropolitan avenue to Gibbs road. Some of the improvements it is about to undertake are: Paving Woodland boulevard from the place where the paving now stops, to Steel road; the paving of Ruby drive and the improvement of Emerson Park grounds.

The play opens with Mrs. Huff just returning from an expedition to Iceland and Mr. Huff returning from Ecuador. Jack and Jill, the son and daughter, are in the living room ready to greet their parents. Jill is in love with Billy whom her mother does not approve of and Jack is in love with Marjorie whom the father does not approve of. Mr. Huff brings a young man, Tommie, home from Ecuador, hoping to see him marry his daughter Jill, and Mrs. Huff brings Tillie from Iceland, hoping that Jack might fall in love w'ith her. The remainder of the play relates how the plans of Mr. and Mrs. Huff go at cross purposes.

The mind is moved by finer things—expression—poise— rhythm—perfume. The clever woman makes herself an artist in the use of these aids to charm—aids as subtle as the caress of a nightwind— as certain as tomorrow. She lays greatest stress on the choice of her per- fumes. For she knows that more depends upon them than upon what she says, or does, or wears. For this woman Cheramy has created two odors that are destined to be far more than mere fragrances —Cheramy, that house so rich in the perfume tradi- tions of Old France, has created “The Perfumes of Youth”. Perfumes of Youth. The first is Cappi—a bouquet, complex, mys- terious, inscrutable—as meaningful as a glance from the eyes—as colorful as sunset in the gorgeous East— The second is April Showers—the freshness of spring- time—a silvery laugh in the moonlight—a magic spell —part music, part color, part poetry— Each of these odors is loveliness incarnate, yet just enough different, that the two may accent by delicate contrast the charm of your varying moods— to your inner consciousness they whisper the secret of a vivid personality—a self-confidence and assurance —that is the very soul and essence of Irresistible Youth.

To make a lengthened story short. The Pershing show is good; It takes you through a line of sport, In sympathetic mood, Then brings you safely into port, Well fed by Hollywood. —5— So lay your burdens at its feet, When you are tired and blue; And drink of romance true and sweet, As true souls long to do; And in the morning walk your beat, With life inspired and new.
