This year’s journalism class was much smaller
than in past years. There was only one journalism
class composed of seniors. No sophomores or juniors
were permitted to enroll in journalism.
With the aid of the new dark-room, the journal-
ism department was able to print and develop many
more pictures of inter-school and extra-curricular
activities. In this way, there were many more
pictures of Argentine high school activities in the
During the school year, the publications de-
partment edited fourteen issues of the Argentian.
It was printed at the Wyandotte County Record.
The Mustang, edited by the Argentine annual
staff, was printed at the Yearbook House in Kansas
City, Missouri. It contains about twenty pages
more than the past yearbooks have had.

journalism class published a brochure for the night
the new Argentine high school was dedicated. It
contained pictures of the builiding and construction
of the new school building, plus a complete history
of the new addition and all the new equipment.
Throughout the year, the Argentian gave tre-
mendous advertising to events such as home-
coming, football, basketball, track, relay queen,
Christmas Sno-Ball, Junior and Senior Play, School
parties, and many other school activities.
At the end of the year, the journalism class
held a picnic and everyone had a gay time. The
girls stood the boys in a soft-ball game. You can
be sure it was an interesting game as there are only
four boys counting Mr. Hammer, and thirteen girls
in the class.
An "Annual Day" Party was planned and spon-
sored by the journalism department to be held on

With Buddy Baker, one of the best scat-backs in
the area, the 1956 Mustangs had a fair season against
the power-houses of Northeast Wyandotte County.
Their best games were against Ottawa and Sumner.
McCoys Mustangs showed the glow of greatness at
times (they almost took Shawnee), but had trouble
crossing the twin stripe. Bill Favrow, along with
Baker, were named on the all-area team. They fin-
ished the season with 3 wins, 5 losses, and 1 tie.

Argentine's roundball squad battled numerous problems this year as well as an
exceptionally tough schedule, yet managed to accumulate nine wins. Wins number
two and three were taken at Lawrence where the valiant crew captured first place in
the Lawrence Invitational Christmas Tournament by defeating Garden City and Law-
rence, the home favorites.
Nearing the end of the season, the Pony quintet pulled a second major tournament
upset by downing Ottawa in the semi-finals of the Class AA Regionals. Argentine
had earlier eliminated Fort Scott and after defeating Ottawa, the tourney favorite, fell
to Rosedale who went ahead to place second only to Wyandotte in the state finals.
Although it was a heartbreaking season to the fans, with nine wins and twelve
losses, after Mr. Kohl made some personnel changes about midway in the season the
Ponies won 60% of their games from then on. Three losses were by one point, one
by three points in overtime, and several others turned from victory to defeat in the
waning minutes of the game.

Although the losses overbalanced the wins, this
was not an accurate indication of the team’s playing
ability. With the shooting of Bill Favrow and the
floor play of Frank Bustamante and Sam Robinson,
along with help in the rebounding department by
Melvin Larimore, Frank Petersen, and Jim Redmond,
the fans saw a lot of really good basketball.

Well stocked with returning lettermen, Argentine’s track squad found its
power in a group of outstanding senior performers. Ray Reardon and Henry
Aiman, two versatile seniors,wcre elected co-captains to lead the thinclads through-
out their schedule. This schedule included nine major relays plus the Big 7 In-
door, State Indoor, Shawnee Mission Regionals, and the final State Outdoor meets.
Four school record holders were among the returnees. Early season per-
formances indicated that they would take up where they left off last year.
Bill Favrow, who along with Henry Aiman carried Argentine colors at the
state meet last spring, went into the season with two records already under his
belt. He held school records in the shot-put (50 feet, 8V2 inches) and discus
throw (139 feet, 0l 2 inches).
Aiman, who led the scoring last year and set the school 180-yard low hurdle
record of 21.2, was also a member of the mile relay quartet that set the school
record of 3:33.6 at Emporia last year. Other returning members of that relay
team were Reardon and Sam Robinson.
Members of the varsity track squad were: (seniors) Henry Aiman, Bud Baker,
Gene Baker, Vic Brightwcll, Mike Caroll, Jim Estes, Bill Favrow, Wendell Fisher,
Charles Haas, Ronnie Holland, Jim Johnson, Bob McKenzie, Ray Reardon, and
Jack Slater. (Juniors): Frank Bussey, Olin Bankhead, Bill Crain, David Crockett,
Robert Davidson, Jerry Dobson, Kenny Duncan, Ray Mabion, Bruce Marx, John
Nickum, Samuel Robinson, Darrell Sligar, and Earl Tyrus. (Sophomores): Albert
Lawler, Leroy Maine, Harold Snyder, Norman Waitly, and Charles Kilgore a
In the past, early deadlines have prevented Argentine yearbooks from de-
voting much space to track. This year the annual deadline has been extended
and the annual staff has attempted to capture some of the early season action
although the season record and lettermen cannot be given here.
