Our sincere tribute we bring, To honor with one thought and voice The high school of our choice. 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. Its Argentine, Argentine that can make all things spin. SixteenSatperintpntont M. E. PEARSON M. E. Pearson has been superintendent of schools of Kansas City, Kansas, for twenty'six years.

This year a cheer leader was chosen from each of the High School classes. Myra Belshaw, the Senior Class cheer leader, was president of the Booster Club, a member of the Annual Staff and of The Argentian Staff. Elizabeth Wetmore, the Junior cheer leader, was vice-president of the Booster Club, and took part in the Junior play. Kenneth Hagood was cheer leader for the Sophomore class.

The team was built around a nucleus of six letter men with Joseph Nick, quarterback, as captain. Argentine, 0; Leavenworth, 0 Both teams played a typical first season form of football, with much fumbling and penalties for off sides. Argentine, 13; Lafayette, 0 The second game of the season was played with Lafayette on Argentine's field. The line showed a stonewall defense and interference worked like a clock. JOSEPH NICK Captain Argentine, 0; Shawnee Mission, 6 This game was evenly divided, each team threatening to score several times. Indians, in the last quarter, ran ten yards for the only score of the game.

Argentine scored a safety and Central made a plunge of eighteen yards for a touchdown.

GLENN BRUNK Captain.Elect Argentine, 0; Rosedale, 40 The annual Turkey Day game proved disastrous. Always before, the “Mustangs’ had either won or tied with the Mount Martians, but the “jinx” was thrown off.

These two were Melvin Small, cen- ter and captain; and Joseph Nick, guard. A group of promising forwards and guards helped to assure a bright outlook for the season. Prac- tice began November 26, when forty men re- ported for the first work-out. Argentine, 22; Shawnee Mission, 19 j This game was one of the fastest of the season. Ngf mM The “Indians" opened and closed the scoring but the “Mustangs" made enough “in between” j to send them home defeated. Shawnee Mission I H came within three points of tying the score, but L Ikl BB Robert Brant made a goal, putting Argentine out of danger. MELVIN SMALL Captain Argentine, 26; Rosedale, 23 The sixth game of the season was with Rosedale on Argentine’s court. It was one of the most furious games seen on the court this season. In the last quarter, with Rosedale in the lead, Melvin Small and Robert Brant brought the “Mustangs” in the lead and a few seconds later the whistle blew.

Although the Leavenworth cagers virtually walked away with five points in the initial moment of the fray, a shift of position immediately started a steadily rising score. William Beasley stepped in for a spurt of goaling and Melvin Small and Robert Brant pushed the score up five points. In the last quarter, the "Mustangs" scored eight points. Argentine, 22; Lawrence, 38 The fastest game of the season proved too much for the “Mustangs.’ held a lead throughout the game but Argentine fought hard to change it. Lawrence Argentine, 32; Olathe, 23 The return clash with Olathe resulted in a victory for Argentine. The team displayed one of the best offenses of the season. Twice the visitors sank enough to come to a one or two point lead, but twice the "Mustangs" came through for su- premacy. When the whistle blew, the hosts had an eleven-point lead. Argentine, 20; Tope a, 43 The most disastrous defeat was that handed by Topeka. The game was fast and the Argentine crew held the Topeka cagers well but the "Mustangs” weakened to- wards the last and the score began piling up on the other end. § rmnr Htglj ikljonl g mntfc (Uram First Row—Irons, Ashlock, Evcrsolc, Lloyd, Miller, Grey, Wells.

His stellar play and leadership account for his being chosen captain and forward on the all-city team. JOSEPH NICK made his second letter at guard this year. His defensive play was outstanding. He was also an accurate goal shooter. ROBERT BRANT played forward. His fast attack and accurate shots made him a valuable offensive player. He graduates this year. WILLIAM BEASLEY was a formidable defensive player and also went very- well on offense. He graduates this year. WALTER JOHNSON, a Junior, won a regular position this year. He always played a hard, fast offensive game. He should be a mainstay of next year’s team. DANIEL BEASLEY made his first letter as a substitute forward.

The beginning class students are called news reporters. They do not secure staff positions the first year but help collect the news. The second-year students are given staff positions and are expected to put in time outside of school to fulfill requirements in that place. The editor, make-up editor, business manager and advertising manager are selected from the third-year journalism students. The Argentian was awarded first place by The Columbia Scholastic Press Asso- ciation, Columbia University, in the 1927 and 1928 contests. The Junior and Senior students are taught in the same class, but each has a separate line of work. Along with the journalism work, each division has its English and literature work. Each student is required to keep a string-book with the articles he has had printed, pasted in it. The Press Club is composed of members of the advanced class, and members of the beginning class who have been able to meet set requirements.

This organization was formed for the purpose of bringing the home and the school into closer contact with each other, and to create a stronger bond between the parents, the teachers and the children. The school as a whole, has been much bene- fited by the co-operation of the splendid workers of the organization and in turn, the student body tries to make the association one of the foremost of the city in member- ship. This year the Parent-Teacher Association offered a scholarship prize of $20.00 to the Senior boy or girl having the highest grades for the Senior year. The purpose of the scholarship is to induce the students to work hard for a higher and better standard of school work, and to help someone in going to college. mm Eighty-nine Argentine Artiuitiea Asaoriatinn The purpose of the Argentine Activities association is to promote the civic in' terests in the Argentine section of the city. It has brought many improvements to Argentine. Some of the outstanding things that have been accomplished by the association are the extending of Metropoli' tan avenue; the buying of the athletic field and the building of the stadium, and the raising of $1,300 for a relief fund for the tornado victims. Under construction now is a sewer connection for the people west of Strong avenue. This will extend south to the city limits and west to the city limits. A contract has been let for the completion of the mile and one'half of Woodland boulevard which will connect the Short Line with Southwest boulevard. During the coming year the association hopes to bring about the rebuilding of the street car tracks to the end of the line at ThirtyTifth street and also the rebuilding of the Southern Bridge, which was destroyed by fire.

Photo on right shows partial construction of steel foundation for Nonoalco Steam Plant Boiler House Steel for every purpose in every land The Kansas City Structural Steel Company has the contract for furnishing the steel for one of the most unique projects in the history of engineering, the NONOALCO Steam Plant for Cia. Mexicana De Luz Y Fuerza Motriz, S. A., in Mexico City. The novelty lies in the fact that the new power plant, which will weigh 20,000 tons, is being constructed upon a barge. This is necessary because of the unusual condition of the soil under the city—a con- dition which does not permit the placing of piles driven into the ground, as is the usual procedure. Fabrication of the material was started in Kansas City December 1, 1927, and the last of the assembled steel was on its way to Mexico City by February 1, 1928. The building will be completed about November 1, 1928. We maintain a large, expert Engineering Force, Fabricating Shops of 5,000 tons per month capacity, and a skilled Erection Department.

' Adopted by the U. S. L. T. A. for the past thirty- seven years as the ball to be used in National Cham- pionships; also used in all Davis Cup Matches played in this country. This ball has met all requirements demanded by the govern- ing tennis association. Every Wright Ditson Championship ball bounds truly and flies accurately. Every ball feels the same off the racket. Official American League Ball The Cushioned Cork Center Ball. Patented March 17, 1925. Registered United States Patent Office. Known throughout the Base- ball World for its finer playing and wearing qualities. The patented center construction insures perfect balance and perfect resiliency. Stays round and lively longer than any other Baseball made. Every ball is inflated by machinery which auto- matically gives each one exactly the same air pres- sure. There is no plug to throw off balance. Play- ers can depend on the ab- solute uniformity of all Championship balls. An air-retaining inner lining seals the pores in the rub- ber walls and retains the original air pressure. The Wright Ditson Record Mesh marked. Made for durability and distance. This ball is guaranteed not to cut or nick in actual play. Tests have proven it to be one of the longest distance balls ever made. We have produced in this ball a wonderful degree of durability without sac- rificing its distance qualities. Record golf balls fully live up to the player’s expectations in every kind of shot. Absolute dependability in the con- tinuous uniformity of the Record ball will inspire confidence which improves the player’s ability.

As you approach its sanctum you are dazzled by the bright lights of splendor and lured on by the promised pleasure of self- indulgence. But as you pass through its portals, the lights are dimmed and the scene is quickly shifted. Then your way is lighted only by the green glow from the eyes of that ser- pent, Remorse, and you retreat—only to be tortured by the derision, jeers and mockery of the falsifier. W. H.
