SCHLAGLE Superintendent The Argentine Junior-Senior High School is a comprehensive secondary school serving a large industrial area of a great city. It is one unit of the Kansas City, Kansas, school system. As the title indicates, it includes six grades—seven to twelve inclusive. Although the junior high grades are open only to children who live south of the Kansas River, the senior high grades serve the boys and the girls of the entire school district who are especially interested in the offer- ings of this particular school. Since this is a comprehensive high school, the offerings include the college preparatory subjects, the fine arts, the household arts, the industrial arts, a complete office training course, and numerous other vocational courses for both boys and girls. The guidance activities of the school are geared to meet the demands of the comprehensive school. Not only do the students have the opportunity of counseling with staff members who are qualifiedto give extensive information regarding each of the fields, but the parents also have a cordial welcome at all times to share in these counseling experiences. In fact, the vocational program of the school is related definitely to the business and the industrial needs of the community through advisory committees of adults. These committees meet from time to time to keep in touch with the program and to share their experi- ences to the end that the school work is kept tuned to present needs. By sponsoring a large number of activities, the school challenges the interest of the various types of boys and girls. Plays, musical programs, speech events, typewriting contests, athletic events of all kinds, miscellaneous programs, and work on the school's publica- tions, keep the morale of the students high and offer the finest opportunities for the development of good sportsmanship and fair play and for the exploration of latent talents.• GUIDANCE • Argentine is proud of its instructors, o faculty com- posed of thirty-five educators, chosen with care and discre- tion as best fitted to train mind and body. • INSTRUCTORS • MR.

SCHUERER Librarian MISS EVELYN KOESTER School NurseAlong with other educational institutions of the nation, Argentine High School is endeavoring to do all that it can do in preparing students and adults to meet their responsi- bilities as good citizens. At present, the offerings are streamlined to promote the war effort. English, mathematics, science, and the social sciences have a definite function. Office training, radio and code, airplane mechanics, machine shop, and other vocational courses provide the skills which enable boys and girls to serve more efficiently. Courses in home- nursing, first aid, and physical conditioning contribute to the health of the students. Shop courses for both employed and unemployed men and women, courses for auxiliary firemen and auxiliary police, and courses in home nursing and first aid have served large numbers of adults. Thus, the graduates of this school have training which can be used and so they are in great demand. In fact, the large percentage of stu- dents get out-of-school work experience along with in- school training. Employers are eager to have such training and experience, and so Argentine High School is well represented in practically every large business, shop, and factory in the Kansas City area, and her boys are every- where on land and sea and in the air doing a heroic service for their country.All Q- FRIENDLY WELCOME X ?. And now as you enter the Argentine High School we would like to take you on a personally conducted tour through our classrooms and building. Much of the work in the high school office consists of keeping accurate attendance records, accurate and complete scholarship records, and detailed financial records. Enrollment problems which involve a com- prehensive testing and guidance program, services of various types to the public, the teachers and the stu- dents, and an alertness to the many little details which are ever present,—all of these are responsibilities of the office force. Argentine High School has two full-time clerks, one acting as general clerk and the other as record clerk or registrar. Ten senior girls assist for one hour each. This staff serves as the center around which much activity occurs. OFFICE MISS JANET CLARK General Clerk MISS MARGARET PENNY Registrar MR. J. C.

Student Congress at Work • STUDENT CONGRESS • The purpose of the Student Congress is to promote student participation in service to the school and enable a larger group of students to become acquainted with the problems of the school and to help solve them. Two representatives from each grade were chosen by class officers of the previous year. The seventh grade elected its representatives the sixth week of school. Additional members to the Congress were elected the second week of school from the home rooms, one from each home room. Committees appointed for the year were: Air Raid, Student-Faculty Relations, By-Laws, Indoor, Outdoor, Senior High Assembly, Junior High Assembly, Interschool. These committees investigated the situations and problems of the school, then reported the information discovered to the government body. The problems were discussed and probable solutions presented. This information was reported to all second hours through second hour representatives. The Congress, this year, worked with other community organizations, interested in the welfare of the district, in establishing a "youth center." Members took charge of the Stunt Night ticket sales and contributed half the proceeds to the "youth center" movement. The officers for the year were: Raymond Miller '44, president; Donald Braun '44, vice-president; Carolyn Whipple '44, secretary. Miss Myrtle McCormick and Earl A. Moody were the faculty repre- sentatives. 9 • ARGENTIAN '44• AIRPLANE MECHANICS • With the addition of this North American 0-47 observation plane to the airplane engine mechanics department, Argentine began a new course in airplane maintenance, taught by Warren A. Swartz, who came from Santa Barbara, California. The four-ton two-cockpit plane was borrowed from the war department through the National School of Aeronautics in Kansas City, Missouri. Along with the plane in the class are one 1150 horse power Allison engine used in P-38, P-40 and P-39; two Pratt-Whitney engines, one Ranger engine, one Wright Cyclone 1300 horse power engine and other airplane accessories. The plane was built by North American Aviation and originally used in study at the aviation school by members of the army air corps. Classes in airplane engine maintenance are for four hours, three hours of practical work, with one hour of related information, then two one-hour metal classes. Argentine is the only school in Kansas City, Kansas, to offer such a program. ARGENTIAN '44 • 10Metal Lathe Work The machine shop course is designed to give the boy two yeors of intensive training on the machines and in the use of such tools os a machinist uses. These machines include the lathe, grinder, shaper, heat- treating equipment, drill press and metal cutting band saw. • MACHINE SHOP • The machinist is a key man in industry. Especially is this true at a time when the country is becoming industrialized. Kansas City, Kansas, is developing into a great industrial city, with its shops and factories increasing each year in size and importance. It can be said, too, that the boy acquires such technical information as machine shop mathematics, trade terms, and trade words. The school also takes the responsibility for seeing that the boy can read blueprints and work from them. Present industrial conditions are creating a great demand for machinists, but the best positions go to those who are trained and ready to fill them. Anybody can run a lathe, but it takes work and study to become a skilled mechanic. • WELDING • The welding course includes the study of the following: Economy of welding, arc welding machines, arc blow and its cause, how to prevent arc blow, penetration and its values. At the completion of the course, the student is expected to have a thorough knowledge of welding and be able to do good work. • The course emphasizes pre- cautions and safe practice in welding and the care and upkeep of equipment. It teaches students to work with their hands with accuracy; it gives relative information about metals, and it gives practice in and thorough knowledge about welding. • 11 • ARGENTIAN '44• BUILDING TRADES • In the building trades course information concerning causes of defects in houses is studied; for example, there are reasons for plaster cracking, foundations settling and cracking, and doors and windows not working prop- erly. The classes study some of the possible reasons for these and many other troubles. Instruction and practical experience are given each boy on standard building methods, kinds of materials used in building, such as nails, screws, hardware, plumbing and heating systems, kinds of lumber, shingles, siding, dimension lumber and interior trim. A short intensive course in brick and stone work is offered to acquaint the student with masonry work. Here students are given the opportunity of making different kinds of brick bands, chimneys, outdoor ovens, fire- places, arch and other work. Four important basic essentials that the course endeavors to get across to the student in home building are, good design, efficient plan, right mate- rial, and sound construction. Each phase of this work is taught not only from a theory side but also a practical side. Very few boys fail in the course. When they enroll, they have definitely made up their minds to learn a trade, and if they find out they can not do the work, they generally drop out and find another vocation more suited to them.Planing and Sanding Principles underlying work on buildings as well as those utilized in the finer work of cabinet-making are acquired by the boy who takes the wood- working course in Argentine High School. The boy begins the work during his junior high school years and may continue it throughout his senior high school course. General safety factors and shop organization are among the things first considered. Factory and production methods, wood structure and furniture repair are also a part of the course. The boy acquires the ability to construct and finish any piece of furni- ture he desires to make. The pieces have included desks, chests, tables, dressers and lamps. By the time he finishes the advanced course, some of the things he must be able to do are the following: distinguish characteristics of different types of period furniture, know types of hinges and their uses, types of locks and latches and their uses, know kinds of grinding and sharpening stones, know the opportunities and requirements in carpentry and other woodwork- ing trades, know methods of bending wood, drying and conditioning glue joints, latest methods of applying wood finishes, hand tools to buy for the home workshop, range of work that can be done on the jointer and shaper, ways of moth proofing woolens, grades of lumber, causes of warping and shrinking, defection in lumber, proper finishes for a refinish job, opportuni- ties in the woodworking industry. The following success factor traits that employers desire in employees are emphasized: neatness, accuracy, honesty, reliability, proper attitude, cooperation, willingness to work, persistency, cleanliness, punctuality, pride in achievement, consideration for others, ability to follow orders, self-reliance, mannerliness, and correct working posture. • WOODWORK • 13 • ARGENTIAN '44• MECHANICAL DRAFTING • For an out-of-class project in mechanical drafting several boys in the drafting classes have constructed a miniature office building. The frame structure was structural steel type. The channel H and I beams were all constructed of paper, glued into their special forms. The outside walls and trim appeared in a stone finish which was produced by paint and brush. Some of the problems encountered in the construction were types of beams and braces, load strength, stairway, elevator shaft, wiring, plumbing, expansion, insulation, fire proofing and lighting all of which proved to be interesting problems for the builders. First year mechanical drafting includes blueprint reading, sketching and instrument drawing. Considerable time is given to reading drawings because far more perform the construction and manufacturing operations than do the drafting. The second year work continues with instrument drafting. Problems used are of a practical nature and selected from the field of general drafting. Work beyond the second year is more advanced. The problems selected are taken from the fields of machine and architectural drafting. The prob- lems gradually become more complex as they cover a wide range of expe- riences. Where possible, production drafting is encouraged. Students pursuing one of the shop courses often take the responsibility of providing their par- ticular shop with drawings and blueprints.The student at the left is study- ing the circuits on alternating current generator and switch board wiring, while the student at the right is tracing a circuit from a direct current generator and switchboard. • ELECTRICITY • Electricity has brought about the American way of life with its high standard of living. The efficiency of our manufacturing centers has resulted from the ease with which we are able to make use of electricity. High schools are putting to use an extensive course of study in elec- tricity and its uses. Shop projects begin with investigation of dry cells and magnetism, demonstrations of motor and generator principles and differences in opera- tion of direct and alternating currents. In studying uses of electricity, the student learns how to repair heating devices, extension cords, switchboard relays, sockets for small lamps, fuses, small motors, and metering equipment. A study of the fundamentals of electric power and its generation is taken up, including generators, motors, relays, transformers and the wiring, phasing, and testing of each piece of equipment. In the study of electrical communication systems, the boy studies the operation of the telegraph and telephone circuits. The study of telephone equipment takes up the design and construction of the receiver, transmitter, switch boards, induction cords, condensers, and installations. In the study of the telegraph principles the boys set up a circuit and make a telegraph set for experimental purposes. Time is given to the discussion of the working principles of such motor- ized appliances as electric refrigerators, air-conditioning, washing machines, electric fans, ironing machines, and their repair. Radio construction principles are included so that the boy may be more efficient in these operations. Insulating and connecting as well as theoretical principles of operation of all electrical equipment is taught. 15 • ARGENTIAN '44• OFFICE MACHINES • Office machines, an office training course, was installed to meet the growing demand for specialized and versatile skills to enable the high school graduate to find employment in business offices. The course offers instruction in duplicating letters and forms by means of the mimeograph, ditto and speedograph machines, operation of adding machines and filing. The mimeograph course includes training in cutting stencils by use of the typewriter and the mimeoscope, care and operation of the mimeograph machine and making copies. The ditto course includes: preparation of master copies, using ditto carbon, ink, ribbon and pencil, also experience in running copies on both ditto and speedograph machines. The adding machines course includes practice in addition of all com- binations of numbers, with special attention to most frequently used com- binations, also practice in subtraction, multiplication and division. Emphasis is on accuracy. The filing course includes a thorough study of the fundamentals of filing and indexing in alphabetic, numeric, triple check automatic, geo- graphic, subject and soundex methods of filing. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of filing generally used.Typists Taking Time Test • TYPING • The school has won more than fifty contests since the first event in 1914. Argentine has never lost a contest in the Northeast Kansas or Kansas City area. Argentine won the first twenty-six contests in which it participated, including ten Kansas State events, three Inter-State meets, a National, and other contests of a smaller scope. Almost every year some of the beginning students reach a skill of forty words per minute during the first six weeks of school. The school holds the all-time State records in both accuracy and in speed, in both the first-year and second-year divisions. High marks in speed for the first year are eighty-one per minute in just eight months, while the second year has written ninety-nine one year in the State contest. This year's typing squad composed of Alyse Aiman, Helen Southerland, Lois Stephenson, Dolores Bush, Marjorie Crube and Phyllis Hoover, along with the shorthand team, composed of Angelina Gomez, Lois Ree Carroll and Dolores Bush competed with students from Turner, Shawnee-Mission, Basehor, Topeka, Sumner and Ward at a contest sponsored by Ward high school. Argentine succeeded in winning first place and was awarded a silver trophy from the Kansas City Kansan. The Argentine graduates have established a reputation in the business houses of the Kansas City area for a high degree in skill. Many firms come directly to the school and choose their employees. 17 • ARGENTIAN '44School Nurse Typewriting Annual Editors First Aid Senior Ploy Lunch • Custodian Trophy Case Sewing • Hobo Day Argentian Editors Victim! • CLASSES• CLASS OF 1944 • The senior class this year was composed of only 133 students, 54 of whom were boys and 79 were girls.

Senior cheerleaders were Alyse Aiman, Edith Christ and Jean Welsh. Miss Frances Taylor and V. E. Timmins were senior class sponsors. • CLASS SUNSET • The golden sun of knowledge Sinks below the horizon. The day is closing and we know That we must hurry on. A last, long look at memories Invades the atmosphere. The fun we've had, the tender thoughts Of school days all appear. The sun is sinking lower As our steps recede their pace. Diplomas clutched bring joy But there is sadness in our face. We leave, the sun is setting With our thoughts of school alive. But the sun will rise tomorrow On the class of forty-five.

MUSIC "Servant and master am I, servant of those dead and master of those living. I am incense upon which prayers float to heaven. I am smoke which falls over the battle fields where men lie dying with me on their lips—I am close to the marriage altar and when the grave opens I stand near by. "One I serve as I serve all, and the king I make my slave as easily as I subject his slave. I speak through the birds of the air, the insects of the field, the crash of the waters on rock-ribbed shores, the sighing wind in the trees, and I am even heard by the soul that knows me, in the clatter of wheels on the city streets. "I know no brothers; I am father of the best that is in men, and all men are my brothers, and they are the fathers of the best that is in me. I am of them and they are of me. I am MUSIC."—Anonymous.

ARGENTIAN '44 • 40• LIBRARY • Do you know the insignias of the United States armed forces? Would you know how to find illustrations of them in a library? It is the work of the library to provide books, pamphlets, maps, and other equipment and to make the material easily accessible to the students. With a collection of about 4,000 books it is no easy matter for the patrons to find the subject matter they need, so the library has instituted class instruction on the use of the library. The library is an integral part of the school curriculum. Present day teaching methods require the use of many books and the library must consider the value of each book it orders in relation to the subjects offered by the school. More and more the library is emphasizing technical books. About one-fourth of the collection is selected for leisure-time reading. The library is careful to consider the literary style of the books and the influ- ence they may have on the student in helping to form a desirable habit and attitude. About twenty-five popular magazines are available in the library for both leisure reading and class work. The aims or objectives of the school library are to create an interest in various fields of knowledge and an appreciation of different subjects to such an extent that the students will develop real reading habits. 4 1 • ARGENTIAN '44Art Students Planning Designs • ART • The art program provides for creative, functional, and appreciational experiences. Individual feeling and interpretation are stimulated through actual working with art materials, including various color media for painting two dimensioned drawings, wood and linoleum for carvings to be used in printing, yarn for weaving patterns on small looms, and clay for modeling three-dimensioned forms. The appreciational function is intended to be cultural. The ideals of nations have always been expressed through the arts and it is the aim to enrich the student's art experience through discussion and analysis of color reproductions, prints and replicas of representative works of a few great artists. During the school year student v ork was displayed in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library, at the annual State high school exhibit at Lawrence, Kansas, and in the Scholastic Regional Exhibit held in Kansas City, Missouri. Dorothy Ritter and Bonnie Rafferty received gold keys for their prizes in this competitive exhibition, and Bernice Licklider was given national rating in textile design in the Scholastic finals held at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. During May in the art classroom various crafts including textile painting, clay modeling, and problems in wood and tin, completed the year's exhibits. ARGENTIAN '44 • 42• FOODS • Two courses in foods ore offered to make the work as practical as possible to the girl, from the standpoint of working in her home or seeking employment. In the first course of foods, a study is mode of the selection of food for the high school girl and her family, determining food value, marketing, food costs, planning, preparation and serving of breakfast, lunches, supper, foods for special occasions, and food preservation, consisting of the canning of fruits and vegetables. A study of the selection and care of the kitchen equipment is also included. This course aims to encourage the girl to take an active part in the preparation of meals in the home with the consideration of the proper use of time, money, and energy. The second course in foods is a continuation of the work of the begin- ning course with special emphasis on meal planning, and costs. It includes a study of the nutrition of the family, selection of foods, preparation and serving of the family dinner, a unit in the selection and care of china, linen and silver, problems in school and home entertaining, and a unit in food preservation which consists of canning fruits and vegetables, the making of jellies, jams and pickles. Through home and school projects, the girl is given an opportunity to plan and work independently. Foods Class At Work 43 • ARGENTIAN '44 • CLOTHING • Two years of clothing are offered in high school. The general objectives of the course ore (1) to develop in the girl an interest in being suitably and becomingly dressed considering the family income, (2) to develop a sense of appreciation of beauty of line and color and to learn how to adapt its use to individual types, (3) to develop a reasonable degree of skill in the construction of a girl's wardrobe. In the first year, stress is placed upon the importance of being well groomed and suitably dressed. The first year girl learns the fundamental principles of construction, the various types of stitches, the use of the sewing machines, and the use of the commercial pattern. Care and repair of cloth- ing, which is becoming increasingly important is stressed. Darning, mending and remodeling are just as important as the construction of new garments. The second year includes a brief study of the source of fashion and how it affects the cost of present day clothing. A study of textiles, line and color helps the girl to develop her own standards of judgment in the selection, purchasing, construction and upkeep of her wardrobe.

Crocker, Mrs. James Longwith. • PARENT-TEACH ER ASSOCIATION • The Argentine High School Parent-Teacher Association carried on its work this year under the leadership of Mrs. V. E. Crocker. To help win the war it held paper sales, participated in the third and fourth war loan drives and promoted the community youth center. The 1943-44 officers were: Mrs. V. E. Crocker, president; Mrs. James Longwith, first vice-president; Mrs. George Smith, second vice-president; Mrs. Foster Hoover, secretary, and Mrs. George Myers, treasurer. The officers elected for the year 1944-45 or: Mrs. James Longwith, president; Mrs. Ben Holmes, first vice-president; Mrs. George Smith, second vice-president; Mrs. Bruce Cartmill, secretary, and Mrs. Vernon Crocker, treasurer. In the final meeting of the year, Mrs. Crocker presented a check for $200 to J. C. Harmon, principal of Argentine High School, to help cover the cost of the annual. One hundred additional books will be purchased to be used as gifts to out-of-town school visitors. The money was raised through the paper sales held at different intervals during the year. To add variety to the paper sales, one class would challenge the remaining classes to determine the number of pounds of papers or magazines each could collect. 45 • ARGENTIAN 44• VARSITY FOOTBALL • Under the leadership of Captain Don Heard and the splendid coaching of John C. Lonborg and Glenn F. Brown, the varsi'y football team had a very good season although it lacked experience and weight. Having but one returning letterman and only two boys weighing over 150 pounds, the team was greatly handicapped, but with excellent coaching and good material the Mustangs were able to place five boys on the all-star teams. On the line were Don Heard, tackle; Wesley Ninemire, guard; and Charles Norman, end. In the backfield were Tommy McMahon, quarterback, and Eddie Cornelius, fullback, all of whom were seniors. The Mustang seconds also played excellent ball. In their only game of the season they downed the fast Wyandotte seconds 33 to 0. With ten lettermen returning for action next year, the Mustangs are looking forward to a better season. The ten lettermen are Leonard Dexter, Bob Stephenson, Lloyd Sillyman, Jimmie McCurley, Ivan Crabaugh, Neil Borders, Harold House, Glenn Kitchel, Arthur Martin, and Frank Payne. Because experience for the Seconds will be essential for the success of next year's team, Coach Lonborg substituted freely in the majority of the games this season, and used as many as forty-one players in one League game.

E. Swender. This team defeated every Sophomore team from other schools that it played. It was defeated only by the Wyandotte second team by a score of 6-2. Success this year was attributed to the boys' fine cooperation with the coach, to learning plays rapidly, turning out for practice every night and above all, playing for the thrill of winning for the school. The boys had everything needed for a football eleven; speed, weight, and the ability to think while playing and they put it all to good use developing into a champion team. Another thing that counted was the boys' gift for cooperation and team work. They worked together, as a first class team should, as a group of boys playing for sport and not for individual honor. The linemen were perfect, being a coach's dream. They were stocky and had a stonewall disposition during games. Backfield men were fast and versatile, exactly as backfield men should be. By the time these players are seniors, Argentine will have one of th? best teams in the league. 47 • ARGENTIAN '44• BASKETBALL • The basketball season was one of the best for a number of years, as Coach Ed Ash's basketeers were defeated by only Shawnee Mission in the Northeast Kansas League race. One of the highlights of the season was the victory of the Mustangs over the Wyandotte Bulldogs 29-27, breaking their undefeated record up to that time. Charles Norman and Wesley Ninemire, seniors, were the only two returning lettermen and provided the basis for the team. Wesley was the high point man for the season with a score of 131 points for eighteen games, with Leonard Dexter in second place with 85 points. The Mustangs placed second in the Northeast Kansas League and as a result participated in the regionals at Shawnee Mission, where they played Ward and Leavenworth. Ward took the game the first night and thus threw the Mustangs out of line for top honors. They defeated Leavenworth, how- ever. J. C. Shankland coached the reserve team this year, and despite their inexperience they won four of nine games. James McCurley and Marvin Coons were the sparkers for this team.

Although only one letterman was back, the team was strong in the middle distances, relays and polevault. The returning letterman was Captain Lloyd Sillyman '45, who took first place in the polevault in the league meet last year. The interclass meet was won by the seniors. The sophomores were second and the juniors third. The team consisted of 7 seniors, 9 juniors and 1 1 sophomores. The seniors were Ed Cornelius, hurdles and relays; Don Heard, weights; Bob White, dashes; Jerry Pountain, dashes and quarter mile; Dwayne Tarver, half mile; Harold Smith, hurdles; and Charles Norman, high jump. The schedule included a dual meet with Wyandotte, triangular meets with Benton-Leavenworth and Olathe-Rosedale, City meet at Wyandotte, Kansas University Relays, quadrangular meet at Argentine with Rosedale- Washington Rural-Turner, Northeast Kansas League meet. Leavenworth won first place in the first meet this year. Argentine won second place and Benton dropped out. In the second triangular meet of the season Argentine came from behind to win first place. Olathe was second and Rosedale was third. The boys who won letters this year are: Bob Cornelius, Ed Cornelius, Ivan Crabaugh, John Loya, Arthur Martin, Charles Norman, Bill Perkins, Jerry Pountain, Lloyd Sillyman, Bob Stephenson, Glen Stott, Harold Smith, Dwayne Tarver, Bob White. Last year's squad won fourth place in both the Regional and Northeast Kansas league meets. The team won first place in triangular meets with Benton-Leavenworth and Rosedale-Turner and placed third in the City meet. Captain Kelly Green placed fifth in the low hurdles in the K. U. Relays. At the State meet the medley relay team, consisting of Captain Green, Jimmy Rusconi, Don Salmon and Andy Bordine, won third place, establish- ing a new school record. Andy Bordine placed fifth in the broad jump. 49 . ARGENTIAN '44 ft M ? - a FIFTH ROW—Price. B. Stephenson, Moody, Lansing, Dexter, Ninemire, R.

The Mustang Club was established to create an interest in the school athletic activities, stimulate pep through assemblies, lead cheering at games, and create good will with other schools. The officers were: Jo Ann Jeffries '44, president; Jerry Pountain '44, vice-president; and Lois Carroll '44, secretary-treasurer. Five mixers were sponsored by the club in the gymnasium for the stu- dent body after five of the home basketball games. On February 29, the Mustang Club Revue was held to raise funds for the annual Mustang Club banquet which was held May 19, at the Quivira Lakes Club house. The cheerleaders were: Don Braun '44, Edith Christ '44, Alyse Aiman '44, Jean Welsh '44 and Wanda Parker '46. ARGFNTIAN '44 • 50• PHYSICAL EDUCATION o A trained mind in a healthy body is the combination that counts most in life. The course in physical education has the following objectives: To provide opportunity to develop skills that can be used throughout life. To contribute to the knowledge of and to encourage the practice of desirable health habits. To develop physical and organic structure necessary for normal functions through wholesome activities. To develop mental and emotional attitudes through the medium of challenging and satisfying activities. To provide social experience that will emphasize cooper- ative activity. These objectives are worked out through; team games which aid in the development of desirable personality traits such as courage, initiative, perseverance, leadership, resourcefulness, and unselfishnss; individual sports, to develop an interest in sport activities; rhythms, to develop graceful movements; and gymnastics. Boys are developed physically for military training by ranger activities, climbing ropes and running indoor and outdoor obstacle courses. Students receive instruction in regard to health so that they may conserve and improve their health and form desirable habits. To stimulate happier living conditions, and give physical and mental relaxations, enjoyable games are taught. • Calisthenics Girls' Championship Volley Ball Team 51 • ARGENTIAN '44 1»K • NUMERAL CLUB • The Numeral Club, a part of the Girls' Athletic Association has a larger number of members this year than it has ever had. Participating in sports every Friday night in the gymnasium, the girls earned points which, auto- matically presented them with either a numeral, letter or the highest honor, which is the gold letters of C. A. A. in the form of a pin. Six hundred points for a numeral, one thousand for a Jetter and one thousand five hundred for the gold letter, are earned through various activities, such as skating, tennis, basketball, soccer, dancing and a record of their daily health program; participants strive toward better health. Fifteen seniors, the largest number of seniors that the club has ever had, made up the majority of the organization. Four juniors, and two sophomores represented the minority of the club. The Numeral Club exists to stimulate and encourage members of the Girls' Athletic Association to earn the necessary points to become members of the club. The entire association consisted of 80 members. No officers are elected, as it is a branch of the Girls' Athletic Associa- tion. The officers of Girls' Athletic Association are: Roberta Griffin '44, president; Alberta Griffin '44, vice-president; Barbara Briggs '44, secretary, and Kathryn Ferguson '44, treasurer. Miss Sue Unruh, physical education instructor, is sponsor of both organizations. THIRD ROW — Aimon. Adamson, Prather, Southerland, Buckmon, Dix- on, Vedros, Fuller. SECOND ROW—M. Jeffries, Levi, R.

ARGENTIAN '44 • 52• ARGENTINE HIGH SCHOOL STADIUM • • Sitting 'high on a windy hill' where a person may get a good view of the surrounding city, is the Argentine high school stadium, located one-fourth mile south of the high school. The stadium is concrete and was completed in 1 939 at a cost of $40,000. The seating capacity of the stadium is 2,700 people. The field was sodded ot the cost of $1,000. A track, one-fourth-mile in length with a curb encircles it. For lighting, the field has four sixty-five-foot steel standard towers, each standard equipped with seven, one thousand watt bulbs. Dressing rooms for athletes are at each end of the stadium. These rooms provided space for 50 boys. There are lockers, drying racks, showers and storage rooms here also. Gas is used to heat these rooms and to provide hot water for the players. The stadium has an important part in the school activities by offer- ing a place for out-door athletics and commencement exercises. The field has a full term of activities beginning with the autumn football games and extending through spring track meets and finally the senior high gradua- tion. This year a grade school track meet was held May 18, to raise funds for the summer recreation program. 53 • ARGENTIAN '44• SHIFTY SENIORS NET RESULTS • DON BRAUN—A fast, shifty guard, was consistent at eager practice and proved a faithful substitute. ED CORNELIUS—As a result of his "go-getting ability", Eddie became second high gridiron scorer in the city. Although small for a fullback, he had a knack for connecting on screen pass plays which resulted in long runs to many touchdowns for Argentine. Eddie was considered a fine general handy man during the track season but specialized in middle distance events. • • • JOHNNY EGER—One of the finest fighters on the football squad, Johnny took coaching naturally and carried out instructions to the best of his ability. • • • DON HEARD—The only returning letterman, Captain Don Heard was one of the heaviest gridsters, weighing 170 pounds. As a right tackle, Don was a hard hitter. • • • CHARLES "CHIEF" MALONE—"Chief" was a good defensive player with pep to aid in lifting the morale of the team. Always present at practice, he was a versatile eager. TOMMY McMAHON—The smallest backfield man in the history of Coach Lonborg's coaching career, this 130-pound quarterback had no fear of his opponents and had plenty of spirit. • • • RAYMOND MILLER—A fine worker, Raymond followed his coach's sugges- tions to a "T". Although this was his first year for athletics, he showed fine judgment in his decisions as quarterback. • • • JACK MOODY—Jack excelled in both positions as center and guard for the Mustangs. Weighing 165 pounds, he improved with the experience of each game. He was a fast, hard-charging lineman. ARGENTIAN '44 . 54CHARLES "BULLDOG" NORMAN—One of the top-flight scorers, "Bulldog" filled left end position. To spectators he appeared to play nonchalantly but this is the action of a true athlete. On the eager court, Co-coptain Norman was a high rated guard. He is one of the only two seniors who participated in three major sports during his senior year. Previously, he had received recognition for his low scoring talent in golf. • • • WESLEY NINEMIRE—Wesley was the biggest player on the gridiron and displayed some quick charging talent. He was a vicious defense man. Co- captain Ninemire was a fast rebounder on the eager square ond o high scorer. • • • JERRY POUNTAIN—Jerry was a conscientious backfield man. Quiet ond small, he was a shifty broken field runner with plenty of spirit. Jerry was a prominent figure as a trackster where he spent his season as a middle distance man. Incidentally, he ran the 440-yard dash in record breaking time. • • • HAROLD SMITH—Scholastically, Harold was an ace. He applied his standards to track season where he ran the hurdles for the Mustangs. This was Harold's third year to enter competition with the cindermen. • • • DWAYNE TARVER—Another senior who participated in the three major sports his senior year. Dwayne was a quiet athlete but made good decisions in all sports he entered. He was the only red headed senior on the teams and developed rapidly in football, besides contributing plenty of speed in the middle distance events during track season. • • • BOB WHITE—Bob developed plenty of speed along with spirit and determin- ation during track season this year. He was an excellent sprinter and aided in winning the middle distance events. 55 • ARGENTIAN '44• CALENDAR OF EVENTS • SEPTEMBER 13—School began 20—Back to School Night 24— Football gome; Turner there OCTOBER 6— G.A.A. election of officers 8—Football game; Shawnee Mission here 13— First nickel assembly 15—P.-T.

Below is printed a year's summary of the school's unforgettables: • • • THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES: e26u« v , New dresses and starched hair ribbons just couldn't classify the brand- new September seniors as ladies. More than holf a dczen walked home at noon after the first day of school in their bare feet. Intervaled quips of humor from the American history teacher, at least formed the basis of many of the seniors' sense of humor, and prompted the pro-discussion of "Why We Should Not Have Tests," which, by the way, died o hopeless death. Because the lost and found department has collected a score of unusual things, we are glad to report that the trombone that reclined on the office desk for a few days, finally claimed an owner. Beginning typists emerged from their first series at the typewriter with confused thoughts about the continuance of their course. But where else do would-be-stenographers learn to type by listening to a recorded swing session? Football practice and water bottles go hand in hand, so the football captain handled the situation by carrying along a sophomore valet to guard his personal water bottle. ARGENTIAN '44 • 5S• THIRTEEN YEARS AS CLASSMATES • • • • Sixty students of the graduating class have attended thirteen years, including kindergarten and elementary work at seven respective grade schools of this community.

ARGENTIAN 44• KNOWABLE SENIORS D O YOU KNOW • • • All of us Chiles who have gone to this high school will always Know(les) about our school days as Full(er) of fun and a Long(with) this are many unforgettable things. The first year we were a Bunch of Eger small Fry Pountain(pounding) around the big dark halls. When the Bell rang we were bound to Bush and Crowder round everyone to get to class. Ve(dros) were sand among boulders. 'Hinkle twinkle little star' was gone forever. Next year we got the drift a little Moore and began to Mill(er) around and pay less attention to studies. All the boys were a Boyer to the girls and the girls were a Durbin to the boys. Life was wonderful. In the ninth grade we were a Beck of fun loving kids. We were kings to all the underclassmen, seniors of the junior high school! Henny thing we did was Heard by all. We left our junior high school Griffin (grieving) in fear of the big senior high and the talked-about teachers. Sophomores, yes sir! Senior high school at last! All the Joneses and the Smiths were Wacker than ever. Loud clothes, something to be different, came to the Braun looking boys. A bright Vest or a new style Cerby (hat is what I mean) was Hard(esty) on the eyes. To the teachers we were a Payne in the neck. A Buckman (boy with money) had a way with everyone this season. It was "Pap(pas) how about a couple bucks? Cotta date tonight with a South(er)land gal ' Juniors, almost seniors, lessons were getting better as the thought of getting out of the place came near. The Mason and Dixon line would come next year so we had to study more. Everyone Briggs (brags) about everyone else so we can copy each other's homework. Everything else would Boris, including the homework after we would go through such Myer(s) to get it. Lovsky (Polish for love) sick boys could be seen almost Carrender girls to class. Crub(e) or what we might call food was important to us growing kids. Our motto for the year was, "Buy a Bond now and Carroll in prosperity ten years from now." Welsh, everything went along just fine, except this poem, which isn't so hot but Cornell do you good if you don't eat too much of it. ARGENTIAN '44 • 60In 1943 we left our Holmes to come to good old Argentine every morn- ing, leaving behind us the thought of staying home on the Couch—so our mob Saunders on to school. American history is a Berry of a class flavored with a little Salt(s) and White Whipple cream (we might call this class the picnic place). Here we learned more about our Nation and the South. English literature proved a deep subject where we read Robert Louis Stephenson's poetry, but oh! the explaining of those poems. We are the symbols of the school. No matter whether you were an Adamson, Ferguson, Lawson, or a Jamieson or the daughter of a Purinton we were still seniors and the idols of everyone. We were beginning to see where we were going to Ritter selves of a lot of wonderful times, and still all of our Parker and Schaffer pens were going double time. For the girls the Huggins get less and less and they grow a bit Moody, as the last days become nearer and nearer. The Kitterman tells fewer jokes and nobody knows what anyone else is doing—everybody is in a Rudd (rut). We must have Water(s) on the brain, anyway we can hardly keep up with time and as our parties and dances end, we're on our own. World, have Mercie(r) on us Tine(r) girls and boys—we are to be the ones to make you better. • TO THE TEACHERS • When the last few days of school arrive, it makes a fellow think Of all the teachers through the years that helped him o'er the brink. When we first arrived at high school and our knees seemed not so stout, We always turned around to see someone to help us out. The eighth grade brought a problem. That's right—we were it. But did Teacher doubt our ability to think a little bit? Then ninth grade graduation and talks in English class. But when final grade day rolled around, we didn't fail to pass. The Sophomore year was filled with bliss, and every day more joy, 'Cause teachers seemed so interested in every girl and boy. As Juniors we were next in line to lead the senior high, So the teachers helped us learn the ropes, as time went swiftly by. But Senior year was full indeed, and important things were done To make the finol escapade the very finest one. You teachers, played the leading role in the drama the six years through. And so the Class of '44 takes off its hat to you. 61 • ARGENTIAN '44• AUTOGRAPHS • « f P+ -4 i2 € u LL J ' u '% '■ I O .
