PAGE TWENTY-TWOARGENTINE HIGH • STUDENT CONGRESS • The Student Congress has a two-fold purpose, first to promote student participation in service to the school and second, to acquaint a larger group of students with the problems of the school and to help solve them in a democratic manner. The Congress was composed of student representatives chosen from home rooms by the class members and two representatives from each grade chosen by class officers of the previous year. Committees appointed for the year were: Indoor, outdoor, interschool, by-laws senior high as- sembly, junior high assembly, and student-faculty. These committees after investigating problems of the school, made reports to the government body. The problems were discussed and solutions planned and presented. The activities of the Congress were reported in the second-hour home rooms through the representatives, following each meeting. Harold Armstrong '45, was president for the year along with Leonard Dexter '45, vice-president and Marvin Coons '46, secretary. Miss Myrtle McCormick and Mr. Earl A. Moody were the faculty sponsors and representatives. PACE TWENTY-THREEARGENTI AN 194 5 OFFICE MACHINES • • • TYPING • • • LIBRARY PAGE TWENTY-SIXARGENTINE HIGH e OFFICE MACHINES • Thirty students were enrolled this year in office machines, a course which was started five years ago to meet the growing demands for specialized and versatile skills to help the high school graduate find employment in various business offices. This course includes the study of filing, operation of adding machines, duplicating letters and forms by means of the mimeograph, ditto, and speedograph machines. Included in filing is a thorough study of the fundamentals of indexing in alphabetic triple check automatic subject and soundex, numeric and geographic methods. Included in the operation of the adding machines is practice in addition with special attention to the most commonly used combinations of numbers. Included in the duplication of letters and the mimeograph course is training in the operation and care of the machine and making copies, and training in cutting stencils by the use of a mimeoscope and typewriter. Included in the study of the ditto course is ex perience in running copies on the speedograph and ditto machines by using ditto carbon, ribbon, pencil, and ink. Argentine graduates have a reputation in the business houses in this area for a high degree of skill after taking this course. • TYPING CLASS • The typing department of Argentine high school has won more than fifty contests since the first event in 1914. In the Northeast Kansas or Kansas City area Argentine has never lost a contest. The first twenty-six contests in which Argentine participated, including ten Kansas state events, three inter-state meets, a national meet, and other contests of a smaller scope were won by the Argentine squads. The school holds the all-time state records in both accuracy and in speed, in both the first-year and second-year divisions. The high of ninety-nine words per minute was reached by the second-year group one year in the state contest, and within eight months in the first-year a speed of eighty-one was obtained. The typing squad for the past year was chosen from the following group: Velda Burton, Ann Coats, Roberta Fullerton John Gazda, Marjorie Grube, Rosemary Levi, and Carlene Smith from the second year division, and Anna Marie Albright, Harold Armstrong, Nancy Culp, Shirley Glenn, Cornelia Jordan, Glendora Lapham, L. C. Maddox, Jr., Arlene Markula, Barbara Puhr, Norma Smith, and Mary Weaver from the first year division. In the shorthand division were the following students who were chosen to represent Argentine in various contests: Margie Speaks, Doris Hindman, Veda Wylie, Rosemary Levi, Phyllis Knowles, and Donna Glenn. Argentine graduates have established a reputation in the business houses of Greater Kansas City for a high degree of skill. Many employers come directly to the school to choose their employees. Many students have received part-time work while attending school. • LIBRARY • The library, v ith over 4,000 books, is an integral part of the school curriculum. Serious consider- ation is given to the value of each book in relation to the subjects offered by the school before it is ordered for school use. Technical books are being emphasized more and more by the library. About one-fourth of the material is selected for leisure-time reading. The library is careful to con- sider the literary style of the books and the influence they may have on the student in helping to form a desirable habit and attitude. Over thirty popular magazines are available in the library for pleasure reading and class work. Reference books have been added to the library this year. These included the revised editions of the thirty volume Encyclopedia Americana, the eighteen volume World Book Encyclopedia, and the Encyclopedia Britannica. For the first time the school has purchased a twenty-two volume dic- tionary of American biography. Webster's Biographical Dictionary and the 1944 Who's Who, an English publication which is international in material, also were obtained. An Atlas of American History, which contains changes of boundaries and size of nations according to era, was purchased as an addition to historical volumes. Mabel Smith '47 has acted as assistant to Miss Mary F. Schuerer during second hour. Her duties were to notify students who had overdue books, and to keep books in their proper places.ARGENTIAN 1945 • BAND • Seventy members of the band furnished the entertainment at such programs as the Kansas City Structural Steel Production Drive, Mustang Revue, Spring Concert and other auditorium programs. The full band in complete uniform played at all home football games and performed stunts be- tween halves. A pep band composed of about twenty members of the regular band played at most of the pep assemblies and all home basketball games. At the end of the season this group had a banquet because of its extra duty. Majorettes, led by Dorothy Clevenger, took a prominent part in numerous programs. The major- ettes were: Bobbee Isaac, Eleanor Ann Duckworth, Martha Grube, and Dolores Hisel. 9 9 9 The band presented its annual spring concert May 7, featuring as soloists lames Childers, bass- horn; Veda Wylie, piano; Dorothy Clevenger, who presented a baton twirling exhibition; and a clar- inet trio composed of Glen Mayhugh, Norma Thorp, and Marjorie Grube. • ORCHESTRA • The orchestra was composed of sixty-five members, twenty-eight of whom played string instru- ments. This organization played for assemblies, programs, and presented a nickel assembly. An ex- change concert with Shawnee Mission was held again this year. The entire string section composed a string orchestra which played at the junior and senior plays and other programs. The only senior soloist to play at the spring concert was Marilyn Bell, celloist. The orchestra is under the direction of Harold J. Mould. • GLEE CLUB • The boys' and girls' Glee clubs were combined this year for the first time because of the war con- ditions and the depletion of the faculty. The Glee clubs, in former years, wore sweaters and other uniforms to denote their club. These uniforms had to be dispensed with this year as uniforms were too hard to secure and much too high priced for many of the club's membership to buy. The officers of the club are chosen at the first of the fall semester and are in office the entire school term. The officers were formerly tv o presidents and two vice-presidents, two secretaries and two treasurers, but as the Glee clubs are combined, the officers were chosen from the entire group. The officers are as follows: Bill Ely, president; John Gazda. vice-president; and Roberta Easley, secretary-treasurer. The annual program given by the Glee clubs in the spring of the year was of original ideas, arranged by students from the club, assisted by Miss Mona Walter, club sponsor and director of the club. The class had an enrollment of 52, of whom 16 were boys and 36 were girls. In the club this year there were several different groups of students who practised numbers for special occasions. The groups were a boys' quartet of Paul Stigall, Bill Ely, Paul Ludwig, and Eugene Leaf, and a girls' trio composed of Phyllis Hoover, Ann Coats, and Norma Ayrault.

PAGE TWENTY-NINE'-W' ARGENTI AN 1945 CLOTHING ART PAGE THIRTY FOODSARGENTINE HIGH • FOODS • Two courses in foods are offered to help girls to plan and prepare a meal in preparation for their future homes. The first course of foods offers a study of the selection of food for the high school girl and her family. It teaches her the determination of food values, marketing and food costs under new rationing. This course also stresses the principles of foods cookery and the serving of foods pertaining to breakfast, lunches, and suppers, with emphasis on serving attractive foods. A unit for the selection and care of the kitchen equipment is also included in this course. The second course in foods is a continuation of the work of the beginning course with special emphasis on meal plannings and costs of foods. It includes a study of the nutrition of the family, selection of foods, preparation serving of the family dinner. A unit is also given to the food preserva- tion which consists of the canning of fruits, vegetables, and the making of jellies, jams, and pickles. Through home and school projects, the girl is given an opportunity to plan and work inde- pendently. • CLOTHING • Two years of clothing are offered in high school. The general objectives of the course aro (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, in 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 course stress is placed upon being well groomed and suitably dressed. A study of color, line, and textiles teaches the girl to develop her own standards of judgment in the selection, purchase and construction of a girl's wardrobe. The second-year course includes a brief study of the source of fashion and its influence upon present day clothing both as to design and cost. Greater skill is developed in the construction of tailored garments of which the suit or coat is one. Care and upkeep of the girl's wardrobe are emphasized in a remodeling project during the second-year course. • ART • To stimulate the imagination of the art classes this year, work has been done with crafts and native materials at a minimum cost. Wood was carrved into paper knives with fancy handles and wooden costume jewelry was made. Weaving was done on small looms. Stenciling tablecloths and wall hangings helped the students to develop their interest in color and design. The classes have displayed color and design in posters and linoleum prints. Work was displayed at the Gold star program and in the Kansas City public library. Four wall hangings and twenty-five ash trays were made for the American Red Cross. PAGE THIRTY-ONEARGENTIAN 1945 • JOURNALISM • Consisting of fifteen girls and six boys, the third year journalism class, under the supervision of Miss Frances E. Taylor, was divided into three staffs, headed by three co-editors: Ralph Shankland, Charles Wade, and Eugene Leat. The latter two were succeeded by Dollie Pratt, Anna Albright and Dick Combs. The circulation of the Argentian, the school bi-weekly publication, reached a total of 1200, over three hundred seventy-five copies being sent to graduates and former students in military service. The editors of the yearbook were James Childers and Claud Harris. The Argentian won a first place rating in the Twenty-first Annual contest sponsored by the Col- umbia Scholastic Press association. In the National Quill and Scroll contest Ralph Shankland won honorable mention in the editorial division. Approximately ten students qualified for membership in the Press club. Regular column-features of the Argentian were "Argentians in Service," written by Mary Evans; "Going Around," written by James Childers; "How to Die Young," written by Geneva Lambert; and the Inquiring Reporter column written by Dollie Pratt. Imogene Carr was business manager of the Argentian and George Hoover was business manager of the yearbook. • CODE • In an effort to teach boys who were ready for induction into the various branches of the service the correct radio and code procedure, the code class was formed. This class, consisting of about a dozen members and taught by Mr. Ira A. Noble, met every second hour and after school. The equipment used was that left here by the army signal corps. By the end of the year about five of these boys took tests for, applied for and received radio operator's licenses from the Federal Communications Commission. A person who owns one of these licenses is eligible to operate a radio station such as the large ones we have in this area. • MECHANICAL DRAFTING • The beginning course of mechanical drafting consists of blueprint reading. Th© students worked with the blueprints until they were able to read the various types and then started free-hand sketch- ing. Pictorial, orthographic, and working sketches dominated the work of the first semester of the class. In the second semester instrument work began with the use of the T square and triangles. After the students had mastered this work, they did full instrument drawing. The advanced course was a continuation of the beginning course and included machine develop- ment, intersection, revolution, and transition drawings. Isometric, oblique, cabinet, true prospective, tracing, and blue printing completed the course of pictorial work. Through this course many students were able to find employment in drafting offices in local in- dustries. PAGE THIRTY-TWOARGENTINE HIGH JOURNALISM CODE • • • MECHANICAL DRAFTING PAGE THIRTY-THREE===== ARGENTIAN 1945 MACHINE SHOP • • • WELDING • • • AIRPLANE MECHANICS PAGE THIRTY-FOURARGENTINE HIGH • MACHINE SHOP • The shop classes teach a boy machine shop mathematics, trade terms, and trade words be- sides giving him actual practice on such machines as the lathe, grinder, shaper, heat-treating equip- ment and metal cutting band saw. Two boys, George Scarlett and Robert Montiel, both juniors, have built a bench lathe similar to the original model. Other projects of this sort are attempted by the other boys in the course through- out the year. Usually the boys make the blueprints as well. • WELDING • The welding course includes the study of the following: Economy of welding, arc welding mach- ines, arc blow and its cause, how to prevent arc blow, and penetration and its values. At the completion of the course every student is expected to have a thorough knowledge of weld- ing and to be able to weld expertly. The class was a two hour class this year and was taught by Mr. Harold A. House, a welder from the Kansas City Structural Steel Company. If any boy was in need of an extra credit he was given two credits for the two hours of welding. This was the only class in the building which started at seven o'clock in the morning. • AIRPLANE MECHANICS • With the new addition of the Allison V-1710 engine the students of the airplane mechanics class under the direction of Mr. Warren A. Swartz have completed a 720-hour year. Projects of assembly and disassembly of the airplane engines were the main jobs of the class. Tools needed in the work with the engines were made by the class with the help of the machine shops. These tools would have been impossible to buy. The four-hour class, which consisted of fourteen boys, had a sheet metal repair shop where they riveted airplane parts together. Blueprints and chart reading, engine repair, engine tests and steel fabrication were other projects of the year. The four-hour class is divided into a three-hour period of practical engine work and a one-hour one of related information. PAGE THIRTY-FIVEARGENTIAN 1945 • WOODWORKING • The woodworking department of Argentine high school has tried to vary its program this year to meet the demands and conditions of a nation at war. The boys take pride in their work and appreciate the opportunities offered them by the American Red Cross and Ferrying Command. In the last two or three years these organizations have called upon this department to construct shipping boxes, games, bookcases, officers' tables, mess tables and many other articles. This year the boys have completed officers' tables, bulletin boards, chess boards, and ten ping pong tables. Other than cooperating with the war effort the student attempts to accomplish the following: 1. Develop an active interest in industrial life and methods of production and distribution. 2. Learn to care for and use properly the things we buy. 3. Learn the appreciation of good workmanship and design. 4. Acquire an attitude of pride and interest in one's ability to do useful things. 5. Establish habits of orderly methods of procedure in the performance of any task. 6. Develop elementary skills in the use of the more common tools and machines. 7. Safety practice in the shop. • ELECTRICITY • ''Electronics,'' the new word in electricity, has been studied by many students this year and will continued to be studied in years to come. Electricity has brought about the American way of life with its high standard of living. The efficiency of electronics has changed the course of electricity greatly. High schools are putting to use an extensive course of study in electricity and its uses. • PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION • With a total of 201 members, the Parent-Teacher Association of Argentine high school sponsored many activities this year. Some of these were: operating the refreshment stand at home football games, three paper sales, a variety show, a Founders' day program, Fathers' night, and Back to School night. The officers for the 1944-45 school year were: Mrs. James Longwith, president; Mrs. D. A. Ghrist, first vice-president; Mrs. George Smith, second vice-president; Mrs. Bruce Cartmill, secretary; and Mrs. V. E. Crocker, treasurer. At a meeting held February 5 the following officers were chosen for the next school term: Mrs. Vernon Pierce, president; Mrs. Eugene Griffith, first vice-president; Mrs. V. A. Suggs, second vice- president; Mrs. E. C. Hutchings, secretary; Mrs. Arden Miller, treasurer. PAGE THIRTY-SIXARGENTINE HIGH WOODWORK ELECTRICITY PARENT.

The team was formed around a nucleus of six returning lettermen, Ivan Cra- baugh, Leonard Dexter, L. C. Maddox, Neil Borders, Bob Stephenson, and Harold House, who at mid-season joined the United States Coast Guard. It was a difficult season with all opponents strong. One team, Osawatomie, was added to the schedule after an eight-year absence. With a four-star backfield composed of Ivan Crabaugh, Lloyd Sillyman, Leonard Dexter, and Bob Stephenson, the Mustangs scored a total of 134 points to their opponents total of 90. The team gained many yards with passes, Crabaugh being the receiver and Leonard Dexter and Bob Stephenson the throwers. A strong forward wall, with Bud Southerland and Glenn Kitchell at tackle, aided by guards Ralph Bodam and Neil Borders, and with L. C. Maddox as line backer, proved deadly at the right time to smother the opponents. Three ends, Dusty Coons, Alden Thomas, and Bob Price proved hard drivers on defense as well as on offense. Argentine won the starting game of the season against Turner 14-0, and according to coach C. F. Kukuk, who mentored the team for the first time this year, "this game was the best of the season, with fine cooperation taking place among the boys.” This year games were dropped to Lawrence, Wyandotte, Shawnee Mission, Rosedale, and Lea- venworth, by these scores respectively, 38-12, 19-13, 13-0, and 14-13. All victories were won from opponents who went scoreless. Games were won from Osawatomie, 14-0; Atchison, 33-0; and Olathe, 25-0. Next year there will be eight returning lettermen and the Mustangs will be looking ahead to a better season in the North- east Kansas League and also in city competition.

The club also brings the athlete closer to the student body and safeguards the success of the different teams as a whole by aiding them in stimulating and creating an interest in the school. The presentation of a letter, given by the school, depends upon the amount of participation in the first team's games in any sport in one season. To receive a letter in any of the sports, one must be recommended by the coaches and approved by the principal. The "A" Club officers are: Lloyd W. Sillyman, president; Bob Stephenson, vice-president; L. C. Maddox, secretary-treasurer; Harold House, U.S.N. and Richard Ulm, sergeants-at-arms. FIRST ROW—Mr. Clyde Swender. spon- sor, Ulm.

The purpose of the physical education program is to make secondary school pupils physically fit to undertake the unusually heavy tasks they will probably be called upon to assume later. For some students it is induction into the armed forces. For others it will be employment in industry, commerce, agriculture, domestic service, and other essential occupations. The program is therefore, for all stu- dents. Not all students are required to take this course. It is required of seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders, with a few seniors, who have not had constitution, because the physical edu- cation and constitution are combined courses. The course offers a vivid sports program in rhythmics and gymnastics to stimulate happier living conditions and give physical and mental relaxation. • TRACK • Approximately sixty boys participated in track events this year. It was a fairly successful sea- son, Argentine defeating Bonner Springs, Olathe, and Rosedale in a four-school meet. For the first time in eight years the junior high team tied Northwest. Jack and Billy Greenwood were outstanding running the hurdles, Lloyd Sillyman was the all- star pole vaulter, and Jack Greenwood was also one of the best high jumpers. Other outstanding boys who lettered are Ivan Crabaugh and Alden Thomas.

The officers were: L. C. Maddox '45, president; Juanita Jones '45, vice-president; Mary Jane Sal- mon '46, secretary; and Iris Simpson '45, treasurer. On February 21, the Mustang Club Revue was given to raise funds for the annual Mustang Club banquet which was held April 27, at the Ivanhoe Country Club house, Eighty-Sixth and Holmes, Kansas City, Missouri.

The officers were: Chester Strehlow '48, president; Rita Long '49, vice-president; Bob Coulten '50, treasurer; and Dolores Wade '48, secretary. Three committees were chosen by the organization to handle the affairs of the club. They were the publicity, reception, and emblem committees.

Taking part in after school sports in the gymnasium every Friday night, earns the girl's points which automati- cally earn for her either a numeral, letter,sor the highest honor, the gold letters ''G.A.A." in the form of a pin. The six hundred points for a numeral, one thousand for a letter and one thousand five hund- red for the gold letter, are earned through various activities such as skating, tennis, basketball, soccer and a record of her daily health program. The Numeral Club exists to stimulate and encourage members of the Girls' Athletic Association to earn necessary points to become members of the club. In the year 1941 thirteen awards were given, in 1942 twenty-four, and in 1943 twenty-four were given again. The entire organization consists of 83 members. No officers are elected to the Numeral Club, as it is a branch of the Girls' Athletic Association. The officers of the Girls' Athletic Association were: Wilma King '46, president; Betty South '46, vice- president; Shirley Pierce '46, secretary; and Fern Best '47, treasurer.

Our employees and management, prior to about June, 1942, were engrossed and working on the fabrication of bridges and buildings. Neither had any idea of the technique of constructing LCMs or LCTs, they knew nothing about boats. When the call came from the United States government over night the picture changed —Uncle Sam wanted boats—boats were made. So too, after the war is over, a complete change will take place. We will again fabri- cate buildings, bridges, tanks and plate work-in fact our engineers are now available on approved projects.

The young lady with a sense of humor, replied, "How about the old one?" Two amazing facts were revealed in speeches given by Argentine high school students, the first one being that mothers six and seven years old were working in war plants and the second that Alexander Hamilton invented the telephone. (Personally we don't get the latter half of this.) Several students who were staying in after school to make up work were saddened in spirit when they realized that the teacher was whistling, "All Through the Night."

The scene is a hotly contested basketball game. An Argentine player recovered the ball, then tripped and lost it. A sophomore turned to a freshman and quietly asked, "Was that trip necessary?" A question was asked in physics class, "How do you check the freezing point on a thermomotor?" Tho answer, "By sitting in melting ice for five minutes.' After noticing the many trips of the vice-principal, one senior boy observed "He's getting as bad as Eleanor." (Eleanor who?) The following conversation was overheard in the seventh grade halls.
