A new coach and a new opponent were added
to Argentine varsity football this year as Richard
E. Armstrong, air corps veteran and former back-
ficld coach at Wyandotte, took over duties as
head mentor. William Chrisman high school of
Independence, Missouri, joined the list of Mustang
Eight Icttermen, seven linemen and one back-
fielder, returned to play the ten-game schedule,
six games of which were won by the Argentine
Gerald Cozad and Marvin Coons returned to
the team after service in the navy and coast
guard, respectively. Marvin, a letterman and co-
captain of the team, played end, while Gerald
filled the fullback position.
Other lettermen who played on the forward
wall were: Kenneth Miller, end; George Ninemire,
tackle; Bill Holtom, tackle; Dick Woodruff,
guard; Charles Walters, guard; and Karl Eldridgc,
center. Bill Greenwood, co-captain and signal-
calling halfback, was the only backficld letterman
to return this year. Miller, Greenwood, and Wood-
ruff were selected for the all-star city team.
The squad was a well balanced one with speed
and ability in the backfield combined with a hard
charging line which had an average weight of 162
pounds a man. It scored a total of 158 points
compared to 1 10 by its opponents.
Eight lettermen will again be back for next
year’s competition and they will be fighting to
improve on this season’s excellent record.

Prospects for the 1947 football season with its
eight returning lettermen show a good possibility
of producing a first class team with an excep-
tionally strong and experienced line combined
with a fast and efficient backfield.
Of the eight veterans who will return next fall,
six arc slated for the all-important line. At end
will be Robert Mullins ’49, who earned his first
varsity last season. Filling the guard spots will
be Jack Walling ’48, and Charles Walters ’49.
Charles has two first team awards while Jack
will be working for his second award. Holding
down the tackle positions will be Bill Holtom ’48,
and Ed Bowman ’48. Center for the squad will
be small but efficient Karl Eldridgc ’48.
Chester Strehlow ’48 will be the only one of
last season’s ball toting regulars to return next
season. He will probably return to his quarter-
back spot while Gus Burton, who earned his first
letter in the ’46 season, will be putting his speed
to good use at a halfback position.
Coaches for the season will probably be the
same as last, with Richard E. Armstrong as head
coach; Roy T. Baker handling the varsity line
and C. E. Swender and C. F. Kukuk taking care
of the reserve squads.

Nine lettermen formed the nucleus around
which Coach Roy T. Baker built the 1946-47 var-
sity basketball squad and its excellent record of
eleven victories out of eighteen regular games.
A precedent was begun at Argentine with the
playing of the first invitational basketball tourna-
ment of January 10 and 11 in which Winfield,
Shawnee Mission, Newton and Argentine partici-
pated. Winfield downed Shawnee Mission and
Argentine to take first-place honors in the tourney.
With the exception of Shawnee Mission, North-
east League champions, no team defeated the Mus-
tangs more than one time during the season. The
squad won two games from Leavenworth, Atchi-
son, and Olathe, while they split games with Rose-
dale, Wyandotte, Ward, Turner and Lawrence.
Ward and Rosedale shared the city title while
Argentine, with its three win and three loss rec-
ord, took third-place honors, and Wyandotte fin-

ished in the last spot. In the Northeast League,
Argentine lost three games to take third place.
Shawnee Mission and Lawrence were tied for first
place when the Mustangs closed their season with
a 29-34 victory over the Lions to give Shawnee
the league crown.
Argentine took another third place, this one in
the regional tournament, played at Wyandotte.
The Mustang quintet downed the Haskell Indians
in the opening game but lost to Ward in the sec-
ond night of play. In the third place playoff Ar-
gentine defeated Wyandotte by a 29 to 25 score.
This is the first time in its history that Argentine
has defeated Wyandotte twice in the same year.
The Ward, Rosedale, Wyandotte, and Lawrence
victories were the most exciting with the first
three of these teams being nosed out by one-point
margins in tight defensive games. The Lawrence
victory was outstanding because of its deciding
the league champion.

• MECHANICAL DRAWING •
The first-year mechanical drawing class has a
course offering problems in sketchings, free hand
drawing, pictorial drafting and blue print reading.
First learning to read the various types of blue-
prints, the students start free hand sketching.
The second semester begins with the use of in-
struments, the T square and triangles.
Second year work is a continuation of that of
the first year. Here problems of machine develop-
ment, intersection, revolutions and transition
drawings arc solved.
Isometric, oblique, cabinet, true perspective,
tracing and blue printing complete the course.
Beyond the second year, drafting students take
advanced machine drawing and architectural.
This type of work is used in drafting rooms of
local industries. The class is under the direction
of E. A. Moody.

licas of representative works of a few great artists.
Class work deals with clay, metal, and wood
molded, carved and shaped with the student’s own
designs under the supervision of Miss Maud
The classes arc composed of both junior and
senior high school students.
• BIOLOGY •
The work of the biology classes is studying the
laws which apply to all living things and their
application in both the plant and animal kingdom.
The laboratory in which the students work has
a south exposure which permits observation and
experiments with growing plants and is well
equipped with preserved material making possible
the dissection of both plant and animal types. It
has many models and museum specimens and more
than sixty charts. Microscopes, stereoscopes and
lantern slides arc available to the student for
A large aquarium with running water and a
variety of cages permits both the keeping and
study of water and land animals
• PHYSICS •
Physics is a laboratory science open to juniors
and seniors. It deals with the interaction of force
with matter. Such subjects as machines, heat,
sound, light, magnetism and electricity arc
Physics is an interesting and valuable subject
because the principles lend themselves to measure-
ment and demonstration by experiments, and be-
cause they are widely applied in everyday living.
The laboratory is well equipped with apparatus
for both demonstrations and experiments. The
physics students, either individually or in groups,
perform more than fifty experiments during the

A trained mind in a healthy body is the com-
bination that counts most in life. The physical
education course endeavors to make secondary
school students physically fit to take on their
various tasks in later life. It promotes a degree
of health that allows one to live most.
Physical education endeavors, through team
games and individual sports, to develop a desire
to continue a program of physical activities in
The objectives of physical education are many,
but may be summarized as follows:
1. Development of organic power and vigor, by developing
the heart, lungs and muscles.
2. Development of skills in team games, gymnastics,
rhythms, recreational and safety activities.
3. Development of desirable character and social traits.
4. The development of appreciation of physical education
through a knowledge of the techniques, rules, strategy,
and history of the activity.
• MACHINE SHOP •
The machine shop class is intended for a boy
who wants to become a machinist. The boy is in
the class room one hour each day studying related
information, which includes shop mathematics, a
study of the construction and operation of ma-
chine tools, blue print reading and other subjects.
Three hours each day arc spent in the machine
shop where actual experience on the machine tools
is had. The shop is well equipped with modern
up-to-date machines, including engine lathe, mill-
ing machine, shaper, grinders, band saw, hardness
tester, and heat treating equipment.
The course is a two-year one and must be taken
in the junior and senior years. The instructor of
the machine shop course is D. F. Schultz.
• AUTO MECHANICS •
Realizing that several years of experience arc
required to master a trade such as auto mechanics,
the goal of this class is to give a good foundation
for future building.
Auto mechanics is a four-hour course revived
this year, taking the place of aircraft mechanics.
The twenty-two boys enrolled in this course
are learning most phases of the trade. One hour
each day is devoted to related information and
three hours arc spent in actual shop work.
Approximately sixty cars have been repaired in
the shop, the work ranging from minor repairs
to major overhauls. The cars repaired belong to
the boys in the class, their families, or friends. The
only cost required is that of materials or for such
outside work as cylinder rcboring, crankshaft
grinding, and other phases which the shop is not
equipped to handle.
Some of the new equipment that was added this
year includes a Black and Decker valve grinder,
cylinder hone, sandcr, portable grinder, clutch
alignment tools, and a Devilbiss paint spray.
