ARGENTINE HIGH SCHOOL
22ND AND RUBY
KANSAS CITY, KANSASWE ENDEAVOR TO BUILD
This, the 1959 Mustang, is presented to you, for its represents the 1958-1959 school year—work,
play and progress. We have tried to capture between these covers, through picture and word, the
many scenes, situations and activities that have passed.
Each new year builds its achievements on past history. It is the desire of the 1959 Mustang
staff to pay tribute to the colorful background of Argentine.
It is common knowledge that 1849 was the year of the gold rush, but few people know that an-
other important strike was made just 100 years ago in Nevada—that of silver. Silver may have been
important to Nevada, but to Argentine, some years later, it became the key to existence. The
smelter processed the silver; the silver, in turn, shaped the town.
. 'f u
In fact, silver was so significant that city fathers chose the Latin word "Argentine," which means
'silver town," as its name. Even the first band was dubbed "The Silver Coronets" and one of .the first
treets became Silver avenue.
Though time and progress have erased many of Argentine's early landmarks, new achievements
lave come in their stead. Through the community's co-operation, Argentine's new school took its
: lace on the landscape in 1956, while the smelter sketched on the first page of this book was de-
troyed in the spring of 1958—to be replaced only months later by a symbol of our rapidly moving
:ivilization—the 18th street trafficway, zooming within a stone's throw from the school.
From this rich heritage comes our theme for the '59er. So—to you, the community, we dedi-
:ate this Argentine high school Mustang, the '59er, black and silver.
Si Cb AWE ENDEAVOR TO BUILD ...
In 1892, one person had the distinction of being the first student to graduate from Argentine
high school. The following year an enrollment increase saw seven students graduating. The grad-
uation exercises took place in the old Opera House between 21st and 22nd streets on Silver. At|
that time, the faculty still consisted of one teacher, and only three years of high school were re-
quired for a diploma. By 1902, the enrollment outgrew the one-room stage, and high school that year
was held in the old jail between 23rd and 24th on Silver.
The cornerstone for the old north building was laid in 1908 at the location of the present school.
In 1921 the east end of the north building was added. Several years later a shop unit and gym were
constructed just south of the building. The shop courses at that time were comprised of woodworking
Need for a bigger and better vocational arts building was satisfied in 1940. The south build-
ing, or old building as we know it today, was completed during the war years. One of the courses
on its curriculum was airplane mechanics.
The old north building was torn down in 1954. It had stood, sturdy as the stone it was made
of, as Argentine's center of learning for 46 proud years. In 1956, out of the dust and rubble anq
tradition of the stone building, rose a new educational symbol—clean, trim, modern and challeng-
ing. High on a windy hill, Argentine high sits beaming and proud, yet humble and understanding.

39The social life of a high school is hinged around its organizations and activities. There are many
intangible qualities taught by these organizations that can't be acquired from books. Included in
attributes are co-operation, friendship, congeniality with one's classmates and the ability to lead.
It is the purpose of the clubs and organizations at Argentine to promote these characteristics.
Among the many clubs at Argentine, the "A” club, organized in 1919, is the oldest. The Mus-
tang club started in 1923 as the Booster club, an all girl organization. Several years later a Pep
club, consisting of all boys, was formed. The two were joined together to form the Mustang club ir
1933. Included in the early clubs were Senior High Honor society, Junior High Honor society, e
French club, Le Cerde Fleur De Lis; a Latin club, Secietas Latina; several Campfire groups and an AH
The Mustang club had the distinction of being the first club to sponsor an all-school annua
formal dance in 1950, which took the place of a yearly dinner followed by a small dance. The Stu
dent council originated the Snow Ball, annual Christmas dance, in 1955.
Many of the old clubs are obsolete, but in their places are others—such as the Safety club, the
Scribblers' club and the Tironians. All combine together for one joint purpose—to make Argentine
a friendly and cheerful school.

51Representing the "cream of the crop" in instrumental music is
the Pep band. This classy, flashy unit was selected from Argentine
high’s regular band.
This group is a very busy organization. It plays for all pep
rallies, home basketball games and other special activities that may
require the Pep band's service. In connection with the "Agricultural
Hall of Fame," the Pep Band greeted the Kansas legislators at the
Argentine railroad station.
New uniforms made this year especially significant. All the mem-
bers sported royal blue corduroy jackets. White lettering on the backs
of the jackets spells out "Argentine." while a gold Mustang emblem
signifies Pep band membership. Vincent May is the director of the 21
Pep band members watch their director for instructions.
RHAPSODY INClad in rich attiro, Argentine's orchestra always excols in the music they play.
BLUE AND GOLD
The orchestra, also under the direction of Vincent
May, is comprised of 51 instrumental music students.
Rendering the musical background at Argentine's dra-
matic productions, playing in the Christmas program and
taking part in the Spring concert were several of the
functions in which the orchestra took part.
Officers of the orchestra were Syliva Colclasure,
president: Barbara Mullin, vice-president; Judy Pringle,
secretary; and Carolyn Rumage, treasurer.
From the band and orchestra, different groups, rep-
resenting Argentine high school, went to the district con-
test in Lawrence in hopes of achieving a superior rating
to gain participation in the state contest at Emporia.
Eighty-one Argentine students, various instruments
before them, watch a pair of hands suddenly slice the air
—and the band is given its downbeat by Vincent May,
director of instrumental music.
Participating in the Kansas Day activities at the
American Royal Livestock and Horse show, marching in
the Argentine Activities parade, the American Royal
parade, presenting the "Rhapsody in Blue and Gold" and
participating in the Spring concert were among the
major roles of Argentine high’s band.
The blue and gold clad band, under the direction of
Vincent May, consists of 81 members. Officers were Ron-
ald Parker, president; Bill Stockman, vice-president; Kathy
Peer, secretary; and Faith Holland, treasurer.

Honor came to the Choraliers when they represented
Argentine high school at the state-wide teachers meeting
in Kansas City, Kansas, at the Memorial hall. This 24
member vocal group also performed in all the major
school choral events of the year and caroled at local
hospitals around Christmas time. The girls in the group
wore light blue dresses which were especially made for
uniformity. White dinner jackets and sharply-creased
black trousers form the boys’ attire.
Without a song? . . . Not Argentine high. The Girls'
Glee club, like the Choraliers. participated in all the
major choral events of the school year. In addition, how-
ever, the senior members song at the baccalaureate and
commencement exercises. The 52 members practice daily
during third hour, and proceeds from choral activities
go toward the purchase of royal blue robes with gold
satin collar-stoles. Linda Hutchison and Michele Holwick

WE ENDEAVOR TO BUILD
Sports at Argentine reached its zenith in the 1920's. At that time the athletic teams under
the coaching of L. L. Watt attained an amazing record. Over a six year period the football team
compiled a record of 52 wins against 8 losses; the basketball team, 134 wins to 23 losses.
The roundballers played a schedule consisting of neighboring high schools and teams from Kan-
sas City, Kansas, Junior College, the steel plant and the Rosedale American Legion Post.
Games were postponed for such reasons as darkness, snow storms, rain and sometimes for funer-
als. A football game with Bonner Springs was called off because of a polio epidemic.
Up until 1930 all football games were played in the daytime, either on Saturday or Sunday
afternoons. The first night game was against Wyandotte on their field.
The football stadium was finished in 1938 at the cost of $40,000. Its seating capacity is 2,700.
The stadium was first lighted by four 65 foot towers. Each tower supports 7—1000 watt bulbs.
During the last year the stadium's lighting facilities were increased. The dressing rooms also re-
ceived a complete face lifting.
The early sports programs consisted of football, track, basketball and baseball. As time went
on, tennis and golf were added to the curriculum. The program now consists of football, basket-
ball and track.
... THROUGH PHYSICAL
DEVELOPMENTMUSTANGS CHALK UP
A win started the Argentine football season rolling as
the Mustangs defeated arch rival Turner, 12-7. On suc-
ceeding Fridays the Mustangs played five grid powers in
the state, Shawnee Mission East, Shawnee Mission North,
Leavenworth, Wyandotte and Ward. The coaches and
boys didn't give up as they played the games one by one.
An impressive showing in defeat against Sumner and
a decisive win over Washington raised the somewhat
dampened spirits of the team.
The season was rounded out with a scoreless tie on a
rain soaked field against the East Kansas Le ague cham-
pions, Rosedale Wildcats.
Leading the Mustangs for the 1958 season were these senior
co-captains. J. E. Lattin, left, and Jerry Dobson.

Affer a slow start against Shawnee Mission North,
the Mustangs, led by Head Coach Fred Kohl, racked
up five straight victories before losing to Wyandotte
by three points. Last year's disappointing 6-16 season
was buried under the 14 impressive victories. The
Ponies added Olathe to their schedule for the first
time, defeating them twice.
The Mustangs also had another "first" to their
credit. They defeated Pern-Day for the first time in
their four year rivalry.
Many Argentine rooters felt that the best game of
the regular season was the 70-56 win over Ward.

Co-favored with Ward to win the regional tournament held at Shaw-
nee Mission North, March 4, 6, 7, Argentine won its first two games with
Ottawa and Shawnee Mission North with little trouble, but lost an over-
time thriller to dark horse Sumner 72-69. Sumner had beaten Ward the
night before in an upset.
After trailing the entire game, Sumner launched a last ditch effort
which brought them to a 63 point tie with 30 seconds remaining in the
game. The overtime saw a determined Sumner gain victory.
Argentine disposed of Ottawa with no trouble, building a big half-time
lead and then coasting the rest of the way for a 66-45 win the first round.
Shawnee North posed more of a challenge, putting up a rather stiff
battle for three quarters before succumbing 63-55.

91WE ENDEAVOR TO BUILD
The town of Argentine was platted in 1880 by James M. Colburn. In that same year, the smelter
was built at 24th and Metropolitan. The early businesses of Argentine consisted of the smelter and
the Santa Fe Railroad yards. The numerous saloons across the street from the smelter were the only
other businesses that amounted to anything.
Construction on the large smokestack that was torn down last year was completed in 1901.
Several months later, the smelter closed down temporarily but it never opened again. Half of the
town s 6,000 people were associated with the smelter in one way or another. The shut-down almost
turned Argentine into a ghost town.
With the purchase of the smelter property by the Kansas City Structural Steel company in
1907, the business outlook of Argentine was on the increase. Also, by 1910 the population soared
back to 6,666.
Argentine became a part of Kansas City in 1909. By this annexation Argentine lost its city sta-
tus, but it gained all the advantages of a large city.
During the following years the business section spread out to the north and west to the loca-
tion it occupies today. Thus, a present day Argentine was established, and is now known as a pros-
pering center of progress.
