Theme of Book EDUCATION: PAST OR PRESENT? Poems by Kathryn Rygaard Sketches by Don Forbos When parents come to school
The things they'll hear and see
Are things that pass unnoticed,
Perhaps, by you and me.
The noise from the typing room;
Shouts from the gym floor;
The ringing of a telephone
Behind the office door.
Chattering girls in cooking class
The smell of chemistry;
Someone in the music room
Trying to hit high C.
They miss all important things
That happen every day.
They cannot understand the work
We put on every play.
They do not see the heartbreak
Over a failing grade.
They do not guess how proud we are
Of good marks we've made
We put our heart into it,
And parents must confess
That they always miss the part
That brings us . . . happiness.
THE PRESIDENT'S CHALLENGE
The crisis can be met, but not in a day or a year, and
education is a vital factor in the meeting of it.—Franklin D.
Roosevelt.PROGRESS IN LIVING DEMANDS PROGRESS IN EDUCATIONNORTH APPROACHE
NORTH DOORAIRPLANE VIEWADMINISTRATION
When our ideal are very weak.
And dim. and far away:
When cur courage will rwx face
The coming ugly day.
When we need tome guidance badly
When we need a cheerful word
Because our be»i plan have been
Laughed at. and unheard.
When we need «omething to cling to
In our world of dark detpair;
When we think we're treated badly
And everything teem unfair.
That it when adminutration
Soothe and prai e —help u on
'Till we know that there i gladne »
Waiting in the coming dawn.
May we recall the courage of those who settle a wilderness, the
vision of those who founded the nation, the steadfastness of those who
in every succeeding generation, have fought to keep pure the ideal of
equality of opportunity, and hold clear the goal of mutual help in time
of prosperity as in time of adversity. May we ask guidance in more
surely learning the ancient truth that greed and selfishness can never
bring lasting happiness or good to the individual or to his neighbors.—
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Thanksgiving Proclamation, November
In November, 1932. 40 schools in the whole nation were closed. By
April, 1933. 5.825 schools had closed. It is now estimated that by April 11.
1934. there were 20.000 schools closed, enrolling 1.025.000 children.

There' the art cla » drawing
Picture of bird , or a tree.
On soaps, in chemistry.
Someone else is drilling
On verb , in English class.
Glee Club is singing a ong
Of a merry lad and lass.
In gym a fast furious game
Of handball being played.
In cooking class we see and smell
The bread that' being made.
In physic we're building bridges.
In typing we test our speed.
In sewing we learn how much
Material we shall need.
Next everything's a nimble;
Confusion and hurry teign.
Then a bell ring ; there's order.
And class goes on again.
Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good govern-
ment and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education
shall forever be encouraged.—Thomas Jefferson.
It is estimated that the schools have never absorbed as much as four
per cent of the national income, that America spends about five times
as much for automobiles as it does for public schools, and that the
proportion of the national income devoted to public education is lower
now than it has been at any time since 1922. CLASS OF 1934

ARGENTINE STEIN SONG
Sing to dear old Argentine,
Fight for the Gold and Blue
Stand and let us honor our school,
Let every loyal Mustang sing.
Sing with all your heart and soul,
. Eyes always toward our goal;
ARGEN llNr. Keep this one and only motto,
Be fair and honest to our foe.
Onward Argentine, Onward Argentine,
We'll stand up for you
Stand and cheer boys, never fear boys
A. H. S. our pride.
Cheer, cheer, the gang's all here
For A. H. S.
Atidc from a dull exiMcncc
Of »tudy. and Icuon . and work;
Aiidc from irkiomc dutic
That we dar? noc ahirk;
There it. in our kKoo! life.
A thine of joy and ease
That's known to all outsiders
When biology is boring.
And history thrills not at all;
When chemistry seems very dull
And English begins to pall;
Then we have the school work
That brings us joy and ease;
The always different happenings
Known as activities.
One of the greatest concerns of all guiders of youth today needs
to be how to steady our children against the high power impact of the
new forces which have developed in our modern civilization.—Ray
During this school term numerous efforts to introduce Kansas City.
Kansas students to music have met with success. The new band move-
ment has been furthered in all the high schools. The first student
symphony concert by the Kansas City Philharmonic Orchestra, under
the direction of Karl Krueger, had a full capacity attendance of 3.000.
The home work shop is another source of recreation that has grown
recently. Many students have set up miniature radio stations from which
they do their own amateur broadcasting.

The Student Council, the honorary organization of both the junior and
senior high schools, was organized at Argentine High School eight years ago
in order to have an official governing body made up of the leaders of dif-
ferent clubs and athletic teams of the school.
Requirements for membership in this organization specify that a student
must have passing grades in all his work for the current semester and must
have passing grades in all his work for the previous semester. Membership
should be considered an honor to any student for only the following are
eligible: presidents of each class; captains of athletic teams; presidents of
clubs in the school; editor and business manager of the school paper and
annual; home room chairmen; hall monitors, and the upper twenty-five per
cent of the senior class.
As a part of the program of the year, the Student Council sponsored an
assembly which was given in honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the
school. F. L. Schlagle, superintendent of schools, Mrs. Mary Helmreich, found-
er of the Parent-Teacher Association in Argentine High School, Mrs. Thomas
Worthington, president of the Parent-Teacher Association, and W. R. Honnell,
member of the Board of Education, were guests at the assembly. Each gave
a short talk.
A history of Argentine High School was read and membership pins were
presented to the guests and students belonging to the Student Council.
Approximately twenty-five representatives of the Argentine High School
Student Council attended the meeting of the Missouri Valley Federation of
Student Councils, at Wyandotte High School, November 27 and 28, 1933.
J. C. Harmon is the sponsor of the organization.
The following are the officers elected in the Student Council for 1933-1934:

The Mustang Club, pep organization of the high school, was organized
to take the place of the Booster and Pep Clubs, which had formerly been the
pep organizations of this school.
Although the aims of the club are practically the same as those of the
Booster and Pep Clubs, many radical changes have been made. Among
these is the method of choosing new members for the organization. Under
the new plan, members of each class receive a list of their classmates. Of
these a certain number of members from each class are chosen, and from this
list the students vote on those who they think would make the best club mem-
bers. These are then ranked according to the number of votes received and
a percentage of each class are admitted to the club. All senior high school
class presidents and the school cheer leaders are made members with their
appointments to office.
Formerly new members of the Booster and Pep Clubs were chosen each
spring from applications made out by students desiring membership in the
clubs. The old members voted on them.
This year's uniforms have been changed only to the extent that the girls
have adopted blue turtle-neck sweaters of the same design formerly worn.
White shoes and skirts complete the girls' outfits. The boys' uniforms consist
of V-neck sweaters with white trousers. These uniforms are worn at all foot-
ball and basket ball games and at all pep assemblies.
The activities of the Mustang Club consist of stunts at football and basket
ball games and pep stunts at assemblies. In addition to these a marching
exhibit was given at the Parent-Teacher party and a program was presented
at Rosedale High School, this year.
Funds for the club were made by sponsoring two picture shows at the
Club social activities consisted of a picnic and dance at Quivira Lakes,
a party at the home of Nedra Mayo, and a banquet at the Quivira Lakes Club-
The officers of the club were Leo Wells '34, president; Eugene Hiatt '35,
vice-president; Beulah Williams '35, secretary; and Frances Smith '34, treasurer.

The orchestra and band, composed of thirty-one students, played at
basket ball and football games early in the year. They also furnished music
for the pep assemblies, the operetta, cantata, and the junior and senior class
At the music festival in Atchison, held this year in place of the Northeast
League Contest, seven schools were represented, Shawnee Mission, Olathe,
Wyandotte, Rosedale, Atchison, Leavenworth, and Argentine. Howard David-
son, member of the high school orchestra, was concert violinist.
Thurlow Lieurance, composer of "By the Waters of Minnetonka.” and
director of the Glee Clubs, conducted the orchestra in his own famous com-
Members of the advanced art class make up the Art Club. They work
with designing and painting, and furnish some of the advertising posters for
the class and activities plays.
In connection with the spring art exhibit, the students worked out a frieze,
with eleven portals, each representing one of the various departments of a
high school. This was the result of several weeks of study of figure work.
Every student had a part in the frieze, visiting the departments and making
sketches of what he saw.

The typing classes adopted a new checking plan this year, by which each
student receives credit for every perfect word written during the fifteen
minute test and each amateur and novice writer is allowed one and one-half
per cent errors on each paper. This system is an aid in the winning of awards
in the monthly Woodstock Award Test, in which many students won pins and
seals. The team participated in the trophy contest sponsored by the Kansas
City Kansan, and the Kansas State Contest.
The Kansan contest resulted in Argentine winning thirty-nine points out
of a possible sixty.
In the Kansas State Contest, Argentine took the first four amateur places,
with Emleen Johnson, first; Emmagene Wilhelm, second; Juanita Atkinson,
third; and Madelyn Bender, fourth.
This made Emleen the state champion amateur writer.
By winning four out of eight debates the Argentine debate teams were
able to tie with Wyandotte for third place in the second district debate tourna-
ment held at Lawrence, Kansas, March 9.
Argentine was represented by Chett Eckman and Donald Powell, affirma-
itve; and Eugene Hiatt and Frank Jirik, negative. The affirmative team won
three debates and lost one while the negative won one and lost three.
The question debated this year was "Should the United States adopt the
British method of radio control?”
In the speech division of the Festival held at Atchison, Kansas, Margaret
Foster '34 won a first place in humorous reading. Vada Mae Presley '34 won
second in dramatic readings. Eugene Hiatt '33 won third place in extempo-
raneous speaking. Chett Eckman '33 won third place in original oratory.
Frank Jirik won third place in oratorical declamation.

Journalism is offered as a three year course combined with English, and
carries an extra credit. From the third year class the staff is chosen for the
‘’Argentian," the semi-monthly publication. Much of the work on the paper
is accomplished after school hours, and points are given for this work.
Requirements for membership in the Press Club are based on a definite
number of inches printed in the Argentian and the number of points acquired.
This club is under the sponsorship of the Quill and Scroll Society and besides
promoting an interest in journalism work, provides an opportunity for students
to discuss plans for the betterment of the school paper and annual.
Officers of the Press Club are Edwin Browne, president; Leo Wells, vice-
president; Emleen Johnson, secretary-treasurer.
Members of the Quill and Scroll this year are Edwin Browne, Dick Hal-
comb, Ruth Bums. Bob Wing, Marie Metz, Don Forbes, Dean Arnold, Harriett
Anderson, Richard Schwitzgebel, Edith Huyck, Mary Harmon. Qualifications
for membership are that the student be a junior or a senior in the upper third
of his class, and have done superior work in writing, editing, or business
management. This year a dinner and entertainment was given for the Quill
and Scroll chapters of the city, by Mr. W. A. Bailey, editor of the Kansas City
Kansan. This was the second dinner of this type.
In the Scholastic Awards Contest, announced in the spring, Ruth Bums
won third place in the United States in interview and third in news writing
in the national contest conducted by the Sigma Delta Chi of Columbia Uni-
versity. In the state contest conducted by the University of Kansas, the Argen-
tian received three first places and one second place. These were first place
for reporting, and first place for editorial, Bob Wing; first place in business
management and second place for a report on service to the school. Reports
for these last two entries were made by Edwin Browne, Bob Wing, and Dick
Each year the Argentian is entered in the Columbia Scholastic Press con-
test, which is sponsored by Columbia University, New York City. This year

six hundred schools. The paper has had this rating practically all the time of
Students have also won personal awards in the Quill and Scroll group
contests, held throughout the year. In the first contest Bob Wing '34 won
honorable mention in the South Central States for his paper on current news.
In the same contest Ruth Bums '34 won third place in the South Central states
in the editorial contest, and Don Forbes '35 won honorable mention in the
South Central states for a news story.
Later in the year Don Forbes received a medal for a national place in the
feature writing contest. In the second group contest James Hall '34 received
honorable mention in the South Central states for a sports story, and Edwin
Browne won second place in the South Central states in the advertising con-
In the third contest Bob Wing won first place in South Central states for
an editorial; Harriett Anderson '34 received honorable mention for headline
writing and Mary Elizabeth Magnenat '35 received honorable mention in
the vocabulary contest.
Twice during the year the staff published a six-page paper, at Christmas
and at the close of the year.
Interviewing is one of the major activities of the journalism work. This
year numerous interviews with notable persons have been obtained, among
whom were Jeffery Famol, English author; Olson and Johnson, comedians;
Clemence Dane, dramatist; Leila Roosevelt, globe trotter; Major Smedley Butler,
Wiley Post, Governor Alf London, General Hugh S. Johnson, Amelia Earhart
Putnam, Amy Mollison, and Miss Marjorie Graves, member of the House of
Commons of England.
This year the newspaper staff had charge of publishing the yearbook.
It changed the style from the conventional to a more modernistic type.

Being based upon the same elective principles as is the Senior high school
National Honor Society, the junior high school National Honor Society has
existed two years.
Choosing the students is confined to five steps: 1. Each teacher instruct-
ing a grade in the junior high school makes out a list of students he thinks
to be outstanding in scholarship. 2. These lists are combined into one large
list. 3. Permanent records are gone over and names thought needed are
added to this list. 4. This list is again sent out to junior high teachers who
check names of students thought to be outstanding in scholarship, leadership,
service to school, and character. 5. One teacher for each grade takes these
last checked names to each teacher in that grade. After discussion the final
list for each grade is submitted to the office.
For the year 1932-33 there were nine students chosen from the seventh
grade, nine from the eighth grade, and twelve from the ninth grade, making
a total of thirty in the entire junior high school. There is no limit to the possi-
ble number of students chosen.
In order that the students may look forward to being in the senior high
school honor society, this society has no officers, and is not a formal organi-

When children and young people are denied the opportunity for
growth and health that comes from physical activities in educational
institutions and in community life, the saving in such expenditures may
be more than offset by the increase of costs for health clinics, hospitals,
reformatories, and jails.—W. H. Browne, athletic department. University
It is reported that seventy-one per cent of the school children of a
cortain large city had physical defects of such serious character as to
affect the child's future health, happiness, and progress. It is also esti-
mated that 435.000 of these children have from one to five physical
defects, or a total of 1.500.000.

Approximately seventy-five boys answered Coach John Lonborg's call
for football candidates, September 5. Among the seventy-five there were
only seven lettermen available to build a winning team around. The team
went through a very hard season, winning five games, losing three, and
tying one in a nine-game schedule. The Mustangs lost their annual game
with thier most bitter rival, the Wyandotte Bulldogs, by a top heavy score of
41 to 6, but the Argentians showed their football ability by being the first
team in the league to score a touchdown on the city and Northeast league
champions. In their annual Thanksgiving Day tussle with the Rosedale Wild-
cats the Mustangs emerged 18 to 6 victors with Wilby Keyes, 210-pound full-
back, scoring all three touchdowns. This victory placed them in fourth posi-
tion in the league with three wins and two defeats.
Argentine opened the season with an impressive victory over the Wash-
ington Rural eleven. The team showed a powerful scoring attack as well as
an air-tight defense to defeat the rural team by a 20 to 0 score.
Ward high defeated the Mustangs by a 33 to 2 score. This game was the
first defeat of the season. It was just too much Bukaty for the home eleven
to handle. He intercepted three passes and made three touchdowns for his

The Argentians lost their third game of the season in a night game with

By trouncing the Shawnee Mission eleven 13 to 6 the Mustangs climbed
into a fourth place tie with the Atchison high team. Keyes made the first
score in the second quarter. The rural team came back strong after the
intermission and put across its lone tally of the game. Captain Peter Innes
made the last Argentine counter when he broke through the Shawnee line,
blocked a punt and fell on the ball after it had rolled over the goal line.
Playing a superior brand of football the Mustangs defeated the Redmen
of Atchison by a top-heavy score of 31 to 0 and virtually assured themselves
of fourth place in the league.
By defeating the Rosedale eleven by a score of 18 to 6 the Mustangs took
undisputed possession of fourth place in the league race and third place in
the city standings. By scoring all three of the touchdowns in this game,
Wilby Keyes, fullback, took the lead over Edwin Clasen in the league and
city scoring, having a total of sixty-seven points to his credit, to Clasen's sixty.
Approximately forty-five boys attended the annual football banquet given
by the mothers of the players. Seventeen letters were awarded the boys
who played in most of the games. Each letterman also received a small silver
miniature football trophy, with the letters "A. H. S.” engraved on it. J. D.
Richardson, quarterback, was elected captain for the 1934 season.

Prospects tor basket ball did not look very bright at the beginning of the
season because Coach John Lonborg had only one letterman returning to build
his team around, but the team had a fair season, winning seven and losing
nine games for a percentage of .439, although it was handicapped by lack of
both size and experience. The squad did not enter the regional tournament
which was held at Leavenworth. The Argentians tied for fifth place in the
Northeast League with the Olathe Eagles, both teams winning three and losing
nine games in league competition. Eugene Hiatt, forward, was elected captain
of the team for this year.
The Mustangs opened the season with a 24-18 victory over the Golden
Bears of Turner.
Their second victory came at the hands of Manual High, of Kansas City,
The league race opened with the Argentians journeying to Atchison, only
to be defeated 32-18.
After a closely fought first half, the Olathe Eagles warmed up and
trounced the Mustangs 28-10.
The Mustangs defeated the Indians of Shawnee Mission 24-15 for their
third victory of the year.
The powerful Bulldogs of Wyandotte defeated the locals by a top-heavy

Hitting the basket from all angles, Argentine trounced Turner 36-19.
In a game in which the defensive play of both teams stood out, the
Pioneers of Leavenworth emerged 20-12 victors over the locals.
In a return game, the Atchison quintet barely eked out a 23-21 victory
in the closing minutes from the locals.
The Mustangs got back to winning ways, and avenged their earlier de-
feat by trouncing the Eagles of Olathe 30-25.
Argentine rang up its highest score of the year by defeating the Shawnee
Indians 46-16 on the latters' court.
In the closest and most thrilling game of the year the Argentians emerged
one point victors over the larger and more experienced Osawatomie quintet.
The return engagement with the Wyandotte five was a much closer con-
test with the Bulldogs winning 43-28. In this game the Mustangs won an
honor by scoring the largest number of points that were scored against the
champions this year.
The Wildcats of Mount Marty again defeated the Argentine quintet by
a 23-17 score on the Rosedale court.
In the final Northeast league contest the Leavenworth five nosed out a

Since there was no one to take care of the boys interested in junior high
basket ball a regular schedule was not drawn up, but the boys practiced two
nights a week to receive training for future high school teams. Fundamentals,
such as pivoting, passing, dribbling, and shooting were stressed to the boys.
The value of team play was also brought out. Every student had to receive
permission from every teacher that he had and he had to make superior
grades in all subjects before he was allowed to practice.
Price Stephenson, center; John Thorp, forward; Billy Duggins, forward;
Dayton Jenkins, guard; and Lester Moore, guard, were the boys who showed
up exceptionally well and who looked as if they would be good high school
material in the future. The boys were coached by C. E. Swender.
Approximately fifty men reported for track this year, under the direction
of C. E. Swender. With twelve lettermen back from last year's team, pros-
pects were bright for the strongest team in the past ten years.
The inter-class meet was won by the sophomores with the juniors second
and the seniors running a close third.
Dual meets with East and Shawnee Mission, and a triangular meet with
Southwest and Manual, and the regional, state and Northeast Kansas league
meet, and the Kansas University Relays, made up the complete schedule for

Boys in the “A" Club are leaders in the school because they possess both
clean sportsmanship and school spirit. Any boy who has earned a letter
in a competitive sport at Argentine is eligible for membership in the club.
Eight boys in the club were recommended for membership in the National
Athletic Scholarship Society. In order to be recommended the student must
have grades equal to the average of the student body or above. The ath-
letes approved are Alfred Brush '34, Eugene Hiatt '35, James Hall '34, Stephen
Meade '34, Peter Innes '34, William McDonald '35, Lyman Ketchum '35, and
Robert Bean '36.
The officers of the "A" Club are Peter Innes, president; J. D. Richardson,
vice-president; and Eugene Hiatt, secretary-treasurer.
The tennis team played several dual matches with local teams and en-
tered the Northeast Kansas league meet. Only one letterman returned for
tennis this year, but there were several other good prospects for the team.
Richard Heatherton was the only letterman. In a tournament held in the fall,
Everett Ford '34 defeated John Shannon '35, 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 in the finals, to be-
come school champion. A tennis ranking board was kept during the fall to
put the players in good shape before the regular season started.
The golf team, with three lettermen back and several other good golfers,
played dual matches with local schools and schools in the Northeast Kansas
league. The team entered the Northeast league meet which was held in
Kansas City, Kansas. The team also had a six-man dual meet with Wyan-
dotte, which it won. The three lettermen are Floyd Harris, Dale Harris, and

The gymnasium leaders' class was a new idea this year, inaugurated by
Leslie Davis, physical education instructor. Boys who did outstanding work
last year in the physical education classes were chosen by Mr. Davis to act
as gymnasium leaders. The objective of the class was to demonstrate the
exercises the other gymnasium classes used. Each leader took physical
education during the second hour, during which time he received instructions
on advance gymnasium work. Then, during one other hour of the day, each
leader was assigned to a class, where he acted as a leader, helping check
roll, demonstrating exercises, and assisting Mr. Davis in general.
These leaders formed the nucleus of the school gymnasium team, which
was coached by Mr. Davis. The team met in competition with Wyandotte
and Rosedale in a double round robin schedule and also participated in the
all-city meet, which was held at Rosedale. This is the second time that
Argentine has had a gymnasium team, Leo Green, physical education in-
structor at Rosedale, coaching one here two years ago. Letters were awarded
to all those on the team who had scored a total of ten points, in either the
meets with other schools, or in the inter-class meets, and who placed in the
During the gymnasium show, the gymnasium team gave a special dem-
onstration in advanced work on heavy apparatus.
The leaders' class originally represented boys of the senior class only;
but later any member of the junior class who showed a marked ability in
gymnasium work was chosen for the class. Only those boys who were pass-
ing in all school studies were eligible to the leaders' class; consequently, the
same rule was applied to boys seeking a position on the gymnasium team.
The training received from the higher degree of work in the leaders' class
gives the boys who are seeking positions as physical education instructors
a greater opportunity for success.

A girls' leaders' class was organized this year for the first time in the his-
tory of the school, by Miss Ruth Dunmire, physical education instructor, for
the primary purpose of training girls in the matter of leadership and perhaps
give them some instruction in the matter of a future career on the basis of
gymnasium instruction. The primary purpose for the organization of leaders
was to assist Miss Dunmire in classes where congestion is very pronounced
and the large number of students could not possibly be handled by one
The curriculum for girls' physical education revolves around three main
objectives, and offers a wide field of endeavor. The three-fold plan which
envelops girls' physical education includes posture, correction, at least one
sport which a girl can carry over with her into adult life and the developing
of a healthy and sturdy body while she is attending high school. The program
for this year was concentrated for the most part about sports, heavy apparatus
exercises, and tumbling.
The "A" Club and the Numeral Club are organizations whose members
are made up solely of girls who have earned in competitive sports at least
one thousand and five hundred points, respectively. These points are earned
by the students' participation in various sports such as basket ball, volley
ball, tennis, deck-tennis, archery, handball, and baseball. When one thou-
sand points have been earned, a girl is entitled to receive a letter in sports;
five hundred points must be secured before she receives a numeral.
Every girl who takes gymnasium and who is interested in sports is given
attention and is directed toward the sport which is best suited to her. No
highly trained athletes are developed or given special instruction and ad-
vantages at the expense of others who are not so well adapted to strenuous
play. A happy medium is striven for and if this goal is reached, the purpose
of girls' physical education will be fulfilled.
Flfty-tevenThe sophomore girls' volley ball team, captained by Dorothy Hall and
coached by Miss Ruth Dunmire, physical education instructor, won the inter-
class volley ball tournament.
The victors played decisive rounds with every other class team and all
were given equal chances to prove their valor.
Miss Dunmire selected all teams and all of the games were held in the
gymnasium after school hours.
Basket ball, also a major sport for girls, became a much more developed
sport this year. The tournament was won by the juniors, with Frances Nor-
wood as their captain.
In the minor sports the juniors won the deck-tennis tournament while the
sophomores were victorious in handball and the free-throw competition.
The annual physical training exhibition, consisting of regular class work,
sports, and novelty dances, was held May 15, in the gymnasium. Emleen
Johnson was crowned May Queen by Beverly Brown, the May Queen of last
year. Her two attendants were Frances Norwood '35, and Frances Smith '34.
The May Queen presided over the program of marching, setting-up exercises,
dancing, tumbling, acrobatic stunts, heavy apparatus exercises, the building
of pyramids, and sport tableaus.
