You are a sight of beauty
When springtime comes aroundg
You're like a hand with fingers
Stretching out o'er the town.
Your loveliness is exquisite
Made by a heavenly oneg
You're a shelter of learning
To every daughter and son.
Our Father knows the work you dog
He knows for He has seen
So He gives Nature's reward
Through the campus of Argentine.
A UNITY A
We dedicate this issue of
the Argentine yearbook to
UNITY--in the classroom, on
the athletic field, in the home,
in business and in civic affairs.
We feel that the measure of
the success of the individual
is greatly in proportion to his
ability to work or play with
others and assimilate and ben-
efit by the directions and ad-
vice of those in charge.
Unity between student and
instructor brings scholastic
honors. Unity between player
and coach wins games. Unity
between the school and the
community, creates happy sat-
isfied homes and successful
graduates in business institu-
tions. Unity between the com-
munity and its city, state and
country makes a wholesome
government and a good place
Every successful endeavor is
the result of careful planning,
intelligent organization and
the willingness to follow wise
direction with a unity of pur-

A FOOTBALL A
Capitalizing on the fact that there were seven returning lettermen and about one hundred boys
turning out for senior high football the Mustangs won four and lost six games this season. Two of
the wins were in the Northeast Kansas League.
Two new coaches were also a main factor this season. Kenneth I. Dick, former coach at
Bertrand, Nebraska, took over the duties as head coach and Frank Scott was named his assistant.
Roy T. Baker, the Mustang basketball mentor, acted as line coach.
This year's lettermen consisted of fourteen seniors, four juniors, and two sophomores.
Somewhat of a record was set by the Mustangs in the Lawrence game as thirty-four passes
were tossed and fourteen were completed on a very muddy field.
Bill Holtom and Ed Hanson, All-Star tackle and end respectively, were elected co-captains at
the end of the season.
Chet Strehlow gained much recognition for his passing and ball handling for the "T". Gus
Burton, Ralph Ninemire, Karl Eldridge, Don Stephenson and Jack Walling were mentioned on
several All-Star teams.

A FOOTBALL LETTERMEN A
Another outstanding game of the season was the Rosedale game from which the Mustangs
emerged a 6 to O victor. Both teams were fairly well matched as neither team had scored until
deep into the final period when the Mustangs crossed the double stripe into pay dirt.
Many games this season were played under very wet and muddy conditoins, especially the
game with Shawnee Mission to which the Mustangs bowed I8 to O. Coach Dick described the
playing field as a "Sea of Mud." ln the Leavenworth game the weather condition was a little better
and the Mustangs showed one of the finest exhibitions of offensive playing ever seen in the high
The Argentine-Wyandotte game was a tough game for both teams. Being traditional foes,
both teams fought very hard and the goal line was crossed only three times during the entire game.
Football gained the interest of many more persons than usual this year. There was a record
crowd at the Wyandotte game. The largest paid attendance at home games in the history of Argentine
high school was registered this year and the enthusiasm is expected to be even greater next year.

A BASKETBALL A
Establishing a new high in the Northeast Kansas League, the Mustangs won seven and lost
three games in league play and finished in a second place tie for one of the best records in several years.
The result for the entire schedule was twelve wins and ten losses. ln four of the ten games
lost there were seven overtimes and a difference of six points between the total scores of Argentine
and those of her opponents.
Twelve first team letters were awarded this year. The boys who earned their third letter were:
Edward Hanson, senior, Gus Burton, senior, and Bill Holtom, senior.
Two seniors, Chester Strehlow and Karl Eldridge, won their second basketball letters.
Ten boys who earned their first basketball letter were: Lloyd Mairs, Leon Reed, and Donald
Stephenson, seniors, Robert Mullens, and Bob Doyle, juniors, Ralph Ninemire and Joe Valesquez,
Coach Roy T. Baker attributed much of the success of the season to the fine defensive work
of the team. It ranked fourth in the state for defensive ball playing. Another important factor was
that the team was not based on one man but worked as a single unit. All members of the squad
played an important part in the team showing.
Some of the highlights of the season were the games with Lawrence, Shawnee Mission and
The defeat of Lawrence, Northeast Kansas League and state champions, in the first encounter
was highlighted by excellent rebounding by Edward Hanson. At one time in the third quarter the
Mustangs led by a score of Zi-8 before substitutes were sent into the game.

A BASKETBALL LETTERMEN L
After bowing to Wyandotte in a double overtime early in the season, the Mustangs won the
second game in a thriller which saw two last minute goals scored by Gus Burton.
Both the Shawnee Mission games were very well played. ln the first game, played at Shawnee,
the Mustangs won by a two-point margin after a thrilling last half rally. The return game, played
on the local court, saw a perfect defensive battle. The game ended l5 all, in what had been the best
played game on the Mustang court in years. Argentine went ahead in the first overtime, but
Shawnee tied it on a long shot with six seconds to go. ln the second overtime, Mark Rivard of
Shawnee made good his only shot of the game, a long one from near the center of the court, four
seconds before the second overtime expired, and Shawnee won l9-l7.
The first Ward game was another highlight. The Mustangs led the unbeaten Ward team all
the way until the last thirty seconds when the score was tied. Again the Mustangs forged ahead
in the overtime only to have their lead wiped out by one point in the last 20 seconds of the game.
The second team also completed a very successful season with fourteen wins and two losses
to give it a tie with Shawnee Mission for the first place trophy in the second team league play. Over
a three year period the Mustang second teams have won 42 games against lO losses.
The Argentine Junior high school team, under Coach Cody Kukuk, also had one of the most
successful seasons in several years. It was crowned the i947-48 city champion, winning l4 games
and losing only 5 games.

Northeast Kansas League formed because there were only three schools, Argentine, Lawrence and
Shawnee Mission to form a nucleus.
A local tournament was held on the Wyandotte courts April 23 and 24.
The loss of the four lettermen is expected to make a big dent in next year's team, but it is
