DOORS TO LEARNING at Argentine High School are
many and varied. Some of them lead to classrooms and
offices; others lead to the gym, the auditorium, and the
secret world of lockers. Behind all of these doors lurk
educational opportunities unlimited. It is the purpose of
this year’s annual staff to enable the reader to peer behind

Fun and frolic
By sponsoring a “Back-to-School Dance"
in September, the Senior High Student
Council expressed its eagerness to get
things started in the right direction. The
Midnighters provided the music for the
dance which celebrated the opening of
school and helped the new students get
acquainted with the old-timers.
Crowds roamed throughout the many attractions at the carnival, spending money and These students find that dancing the

“Three shots for a quarter! Step right up
and get your prize!” Above the noise and
excitement of the annual AHS carnival
these words could be discerned. The
carnival was one of the first big all-
school events of the year. Booths spon-
sored by all the clubs lined the gym,
while the penny toss and other games
drew huge crowds to the center of the
floor. Classrooms became side-shows,
palm-reading parlors, and the biggest
attraction of all —the jail. All students
supported the carnival with their attend-
ance and worked hard to make it a suc-
cess. The proceeds were used to augment
the school budget and supply equipment
and projects which could not otherwise
Again this year the annual ABOPS (Argen-

crowd and money for the treasury. Singing,
dancing, and instrumental music features
were included in the show.
All vocal music classes and organizations
took part in “Music for an Autumn Evening,”
this year's Fall Festival of Song. Under the
direction of Mr. Charles Olson, the choral
groups performed classical and folk selec-
tions as well as show tunes. Gary Tucker
played two numbers for classical guitar.

“Witching Hour” cast spell
Silence was evident in Argentine’s foot-
ball stadium at the halftime of the home-
coming game against Bonner Springs.
Mustang Club president, Paula Curran,
slit the envelope containing the name of
the elected winner, and the students
burst into applause as Jacki Snyder was
introduced as the 1964-65 homecoming
queen. Surrounded by her attendants,
Colleen Staggs, Becky Sparks, Gayle
Stroud, and Jeannie Adkins, Jacki was
presented with the traditional kiss and
bouquet of red roses by the football co-
captains, Alva Thomas and Mike Wood.
Following the ceremony, the happy roy-
alty watched the Mustangs win 31-0.
The following night Queen Jacki and
her attendants reigned over the home-
coming dance. The theme of the dance
was "The Witching Hour.” The flickering
faces of jack-o-lanterns adorned each
table and gruesome masks, skeletons,
witches, black cats, and spiders peered
out from all directions. A real live witch
was on hand to serve refreshments. Dave
Van Zant’s band provided music.

beauty and laughter
Audience interest focused on the construction of the teahouse.
The set was built by the stagecraft class.
Assisted by a goat, a jeep, and two Frank-
lin grade school students, 22 students
presented “Teahouse of the August Moon”
on October 20. Mr. Jerry Davis directed
the Mustang Club play adapted by John
Patrick from Vern Sneider's novel. The
cast faced a hard task as they had only a
few weeks to learn about Okinawain
customs, dialects, and dress; however,
the reports by students and families of a
delightful evening of theater indicated
the cast’s efforts were not in vain.

This year the class of ’66 presented The
Member of the Wedding. In the play,
Candice Hammons as Frankie Addams,
an adolescent girl torn between child-
hood and adulthood, is constantly seek-
ing a place where she can belong, a place
where she can be a “member.” Her actions
often led to both laughter and tears. In
addition to the larg'e junior cast, Jimmy
House, a third grader at Noble Prentis
Grade School, played John Henry, and
Donna Blanks, a senior, played Berenice,
the cook and housekeeper. This drama
was well received by an audience accus-
tomed to comedy.

Crews and cast alike devoted long
hours of work to produce The Diary
of Anne Frank, the senior class play,
which was the final dramatic offer-
ing of the year. The set, one of the
most complex ever done at Argentine,
gave the play a sense of reality. The
audience was one of the largest ever
recorded for a non-musical produc-
tion. The three major roles were ably
performed by Colleen Staggs as Anne
Frank, Charles Carpenter as Herr

added festive spirit
To enter Santa Claus’s workshop, couples
strolled through the “ramp” draped with
brig'ht paper and guarded by large toy
soldiers. Toys, toys, and more toys decor-
ated the window sill that looked out over
the city. “YE OLD SHOPPE” was locked
up for the night, but through the win-
dows couples could see toys in various
stages of creation. Nobody could guess
that by morning the magic spell would
be broken and the library would regain
At nine o’clock on that snowy evening of
December 22, the sound of sleigh bells
and “Ho-Ho-Ho’s” filled the air. As Santa
Claus ran through the corridor and into
the workshop, couples crowded around
him to hear his announcement; the 1964-
1965 Sno-Ball Queen was MISS BECKY
SPARKS. To the tune of “Babes in Toy-
land” Becky and her escort danced. After
the queen’s dance she was presented with
a dozen long-stemmed red roses and
seated at her table.

Twirp Week provided
change of pace
Argentine’s halls took on a new look dur-
ing- the traditional Twirp Week. During-
this week the girls were expected to make
dates and pay for them as well. The girls
were allowed to wear jeans during the
week and were required to carry boys’
books, open doors for them, and perform
other “gentlemanly” gestures that are
“usually” performed by the boys.
Among this year’s activities were an egg
toss won by Debbie Lillich and Gregg-
House, a tug-a-war won by the sopho-
more girls, and a pie-eating contest in
which the sophomores and seniors tied.
The week was brought to a close with the
Twirp dance, which carried the theme
“007” out of the James Bond thrillers.
This year’s dance provided an extra hig h-
lig'ht consisting of an obstacle course
which eventually led to an area entitled
“Fort Knox.” Music for the evening was
provided by the Caspians.
Larry Brotherton, Bonnie King, and Mary Lou Reed run the obsta-

Senior Prom, held in the transformed service drive.

the world of reality and the world of fantasy.
Juniors created Shangri-la
Cool, windy weather did not dampen spirits of the
junior class as they paid their final tribute to the
senior class at the Junior-Senior Prom, “Shangri-
la.” A Buddhist shrine, an oriental fountain, a
bridge, and a pool with gold fish created Shangri-la
for the gala. Couples danced to the music of the
Dave VanZant Band. Refreshments of punch and
fortune cookies served to the 125 couples comple-
mented the oriental theme.

candidates were nominated by the track
team, one from each class. The students
voted for one of the three when they pur-

On the day of the relays, the candidates
were presented at an assembly. The varsi-
ty cheerleaders carrying the crown,
roses, and corsages preceded the candi-
dates into the auditorium. The sopho-
more candidate Susan Willi'ams was
escorted by Larry Hurt. Junior Mike

Responsibility for the administra-
tion of four high schools, five junior
high schools, the junior college,
and thirty-eight elementary schools
in Kansas City, Kansas rested on
the shoulders of six civic leaders
who comprised the Board of Educa-
tion. These business and profes-
sional men gave of their time and
energies to help determine the pol-
icies which guided the operations
of the schools. The Superintendent
of Schools administered these pol-
icies and led the Kansas City, Kan-
sas educational system. He was
assisted in fiscal matters by the
business manager. Just as the Su-
perintendent worked directly with
the Board, the principals of the
various schools worked closely
with their personnel to achieve a
healthy educational atmosphere.
Mr. Channel, Argentine principal
since 1954, and Mr. Dunn, vice-
principal and activities director
since 1961, shared in the adminis-
trative duties of our school. They
worked with the students and staff
members to insure an efficiently
operated school and to develop the
setting for sound educational op-
portunities. What changes the fu-
ture will bring for the Argentine
school is a matter of conjecture.
Projected plans for urban renewal
have included the possibility of a
new separate junior high school.

as this year’s, will make such a

Many staffs made
Successful schools are not only depen-
dent upon teachers but all staff mem-
bers, including' the office workers, the
school nurse, the maintenance crew,
the school librarian, the cafeteria staff,
and their helpers.
The office staff aided in making- the
school year run smoothly. These wo-
men kept attendance records, recorded
grades, collected money, and per-
formed other related clerical duties
affecting- the entire school.
In order for a person to learn, he must
be in good health. Tuberculin tests,
administration of polio vaccines, and
audio and visual tests were included
in this year's health program.
Responsible for keeping the cafeteria neat were Kenny Neal, Larry Libeer, Steve
Marler, and Gary Tucker.
The custodial staff was responsible
for the physical comfort throughout
the school, the maintenance, repairs,
and the attractiveness of the school.
For the students needing research
materials or good books, the librarian
was available to offer her services.
Aided by her helpers, she reserved
books, helped find sources of informa-
tion, and managed the library so that
it operated efficiently.
The responsibility of testing, coun-
seling, and guiding students in the
right selection of courses rested upon
the shoulders of Miss Kraft and Mr.
Hoyt. They informed students about
college qualifications, admission
procedures and procedures for apply-
ing for scholarships. When asked,
counselors tried to help students
resolve their personal problems.
Assisting in the library this year were, Row 1: Danny Walker,
Roberta Clifton, Merced Pacheco. Row 2: Sandra Hamilton, Kay Rus-
sell, Dale Rider, Suelene Briggs, Sue Lambeth.
Responsible for a neat school were Bob Johnson, Bill Orrison, John McGhan,
Orville McLeod, Evelyn Penn, Glen Malott, Ray Cazzell, and Earl Green.
Wilma Venis, Rosemary Thompson, Billie Tucker, and Martha
Smith worked as clerks and receptionists for the counselors.
25Responsible for food preparation in the cafeteria were Cleta Marx, Eva Williams, Mary Jane Benton, Frances Knowles, Adeline Ander-
ton, Creta Holland, Elma Williams, Agnes Bean, Lily Carpenter, Marie Moritz, Dorothy Smith and Anna Hayward.
Ringing the cash registers in the cafeteria were Peggy Scott, Sharon Hilton, Registrar
Kendall Houts, Peggy Culter, and Janice Novick.

Humming- sewing machines,

freshly-cooked foods signaled
that the home economics classes
were busy. The domestic science
department included clothing,
foods, and family living'courses.
Girls enrolled in clothing pro-
duced many garments, ranging
from simple gathered skirts to
smoothly tailored suits. Foods
classes learned about nutrition
and cooking techniques. Dur-
ing the Christmas season the
girls held a tea for the students’
mothers and faculty members
and served cookies, candies,
and beverages which they had
prepared. The vocational foods
classes gained experience in
buying, preparing, and serving
foods in quantity by helping in
the cafeteria. The family living
classes studied the relation-
ships of the family and society.
They were instructed in plan-
ning a formal wedding' and dec-
orating the interior of the home.
They also learned the funda-
mentals of home economy.

Clear, concise writing- and reading, as
well as oral communication were stressed
in the English department. In the seventh
and eighth grades Mrs. Latas, Mrs.
Young, and Mrs. McGowan helped stu-
dents form a foundation for future En-
glish classes. Miss Perkins gave the
ninth graders their first work with com-
plicated English grammar. Mrs. Jaquith
and Mrs. Leisy helped the sophomores
through their first attempts with serious
literature. For many students Mrs. Bark-
er, Mrs. Leisy, and Mr. Wherry gave stu-
dents their final English course. The
college preparatory students studied
English literature and learned to write
research papers under the guidance of

Combining bookwork with practical application,
students learned the fundamentals of industrial
and technical training . Mr. Wolfe started junior
high boys in this direction with his exploratory
general shop courses. With this base, some students
while under the watchful eye of Mr. Myers later took
auto mechanics with the idea of keeping their own
“gas bugg y” in repair or of becoming a g arag e me-
chanic. Others became skillful draftsmen under
Mr. Mali’s tutelag e or created projects in Mr. Har-
rison’s woodworking classes. The intricacies of
metal work finished with precision were taug ht by
Mr. Walling: and in Mr. Rankin’s welding classes,
boys learned to fuse metals. After learning the
fundamentals of electronics, Mr. Dreher’s elec-
tricity students elected to build projects such as
radios. All of these experiences contributed to the
students’ general education and for many were the
means of securing employment or meeting pre-
requisites for advanced training upon being grad-
uated from Argentine.

learned basic theories of psychology
from Miss Kraft.

Appreciation developed through fine arts
Students broadened their
field of knowledge through
the study of drama, speech,
art, and vocal and instru-
mental music. Not only did
they learn to perform but
developed greater appreci-
ation for fine arts. Those en-
rolled in drama were able to
learn about communication
as well as make up and the
fundamentals of producing
a play. In speech students
learned how to give a speech
and remain poised. Those in
art worked in many different
media including’ “found”

springs, glass bits, manne-
quin legs, and rollers. The

Demand for office
Training- in typing for personal and
vocational use, basic or advanced
bookkeeping, beginning shorthand or
transcription, and use of various
business machines was available to
Argentine students. While some stu-
dents were interested only in acquir-
ing enoug'h skill to type term papers
or gain part-time employment to
pursue further education, many stu-
dents followed careers as bookkeep-
ers, clerical workers, stenographers,
or secretaries upon being graduated.
Demand for this training was such
that an additional room was equipped
for teaching business subjects this
year. Students supplemented their
classroom work by gaining valuable
experience as stenographers or clerks
for the clinic, counselors’ offices, or
other departments needing assistance.Within these gates the Mustangs scrimmaged and then
played their home football games and held track meets.
With each victory and loss the athletes gained lessons
in sportsmanship and teamwork and realized the re-
wards of their efforts to maintain physical fitness.
Other athletic events were held in the gym and at
parks and golf courses around the city. No matter
where such action took place, the Mustangs took
pride in doing their best for Argentine and the student
body took pride in the Mustangs.

Serving- as a “feeder” for the varsity and jun-

football prog-ram provided playing exper-
ience for team members. Signs of improve-
ment were evidenced as the season pro-

Warren Issac, felt their boys worked hard
and a few showed outstanding- potential.

Under the guidance of coach Larry
Bale, the Argentine Mustangs ended
their basketball season with a 9-12
record. Starting the season with three
returning' lettermen, seniors Bob
Bray, Dennis Vest, and Mike DeSeure,
the team was joined by Larry Libeer
from the junior varsity. Underclass-
men Steve Gaut, Dave McMullen, and
Larry Hurt filled out the varsity
squad. Don Kerns and Richard Hook-
er kept the team and its equipment
in fine shape and were presented
letters for their hard work.
Although not an exceptionally good
season in the won-lost column, the
season did prove to be an exciting one
for all concerned —coaches, players,
and spectators. Seven games were
decided by less than three points.
Among the games were three over-
times and two double overtimes. The
Mustangs took second place in the
EKL Tournament and finished EKL
play in fourth place with a 5-5 record.

Two basic criteria for determining bas-

progressed and the extent of his par-
ticipation in varsity games. The perform-

was also considered.

The sophomore basketball program is de-

for the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams.
Through competition, these boys have an
opportunity to develop those skills neces-
sary for playing- a hig-her level of basketball.
The boys pictured, who remained with the
program, demonstrated the self-discipline
and determination essential for improve-
ment. The measure of these boys was in the
self-reliance they will carry with them in
future sporting- events. The results were:

This season saw an overall growth of the
program as well as some fine individual
work. This year’s team had 13 sprinters
with times under 60 seconds in the 440-yard
dash. No other team in the past has had
this good an overall performance. Ten of the
13 boys were underclassmen so they should
return to win honors next year. The season
started with a triangular win over Ward and
Immaculata. After this, they participated in
large relays where little emphasis was
placed on winning the meet.
Gary Tucker was the most impressive indi-
vidual performer. He set a state indoor
record of 59’10” in the shot put. He also set
records at the Argentine, Atchison, EKL, and
Wyandotte relays. His finest performance
was in the state meet where he put the shot

through the gym doors regularly. The Mustang Club,
Colt Club, and their cheerleaders yelled at the basket-
ball games, and the student council and other groups
met in the gym before school. Other organizations met
in the cafeteria, the clinic, and in classrooms. Regard-
less of its meeting place or what its specific g oals were,
each group offered students opportunities to learn and
broaden their horizons.
ORGANIZATIONSLeading the Mustang Club were Bev Taylor, vice-president: Paula Curran,
president; Donna Clune, secretory, and Cindy Gray, treasurer.
Spirit, enthusiasm, and support of teams typ-
ified the Mustang- Club. This lively organiza-
tion, consisting- of 195 members from the
sophomore, junior, and senior classes, was
headed through many successful activities by
Paula Curran, president.
The first activity of the year sponsored by the
Mustang Club was the play, “Teahouse of the
August Moon,” followed by club participation in
the bonfire rally sponsored by the Student
Council. The next major task of the fall season
for the Mustang Club workers was the prepara-
tion for home-coming festivities, including the
coronation ceremony for the queen and the
dance, “The Witching Hour.”
A new organization within the Mustang Club
this year was Honor Pep. This organization
gave special recognition to those members who
gave extra time and effort toward promoting pep
and school spirit by attending all home games,
participating in pep assemblies, making post-
ers, decorating goal posts, checking member
attendance, and any jobs requested of them.
The twelve students selected in addition to the
Mustang Club officers wore special uniforms
consisting of white pleated skirts and white
blouses for the girls and black slacks, white
shirts, and ties for the boys. A navy blue blazer
with the school insignia on the pocket com-
pleted the uniform. The Honor Pep Club occu-
pied special positions at all athletic events dur-
ing the year and were responsible for helping
organize the pep club members at each game.

58Representing the Junior Varsity at
football and basketball games were a
g'roup of five sophomore girls which
made up the 1964-65 Junior Varsity
cheerleading squad. Debbie Lillich,
Marsha Maxim, Linda McCamish, Becky
Myers, and Susan Williams were selected
for their ability by a seven member facul-
ty committee. The Junior Varsity Cheer-
leaders were responsible for several new
side-line cheers, as well as new motions
for some of the existing cheers.
Minutes before the game begins, .Junior Varsity cheerleaders practice
to perfect routines.
A bon-fire rally for the Argentine-Turner
game was held on October 22. During the
snake dance the students threw card-
board boxes on the bonfire. Six boys
donned cheerleading skirts and sweaters
and led several hilarious cheers. A mock
football game was played with Argentine
girls acting' as the Turner Bears. The
varsity squad represented the Argentine
team. Argentine won the amusing game
by a landslide. The rally closed with the
real cheerleaders leading several cheers
dedicated to the football team.

To begin the school year, the orchestra
performed in the ABOPS Variety Show.
They also participated in the Christmas
program and Music Time. A Spring Vocal
and Instrumental Concert replaced the
annual musical stage production. For
this program a string ensemble accom-
panied the chorus for Faure’s “Requiem,”
and the orchestra played several other
selections. To climax their season, the
orchestra prepared selections for com-
mencement. Members of the Orchestra

With the arrival of new uniforms, the
marching band looked forward to an
exciting year. They not only marched
at all home games but also partici-

group was chosen from the regular
band for its playing- skill. They prac-
ticed after school each Thursday af-

This music not only calmed flared
tempers but also added to the spirit

Ushering, acting, building, competing,
entertaining: all were part of Thespian
activities. The group, active since the
spring of 1960, did a fine job of emulat-
ing their namesake Thespis this year.
They toured local PTA meetings present-
ing a play about child discipline, took a
Christmas play to Noble Prentis g rade
school, and entertained a nurses’ club
at a Christmas meeting. Under the guid-
ance of Mr. Jerry Davis, the group took
a play and two cuttings to contests.

School name boosted
Selected on the basis of marching ability
and the recommendations of teachers
and graduating Argentinettes, a group of
nine girls proudly spelled out Argentine.
Supervised by Mr. James Sherbon, the
Argentinettes performed routines,
marched, and represented the school.
They practiced diligently during the
football season and fronted the band in
all its performances. Seated before the
Mustang Club during basketball games,
these girls indicated Argentine’s cheer-
Janice Reynolds, Sondra Corbin, Pam
Marshall, and Janelle Perkins served as
alternates to the regulars.

diverse personalities of the student body as well as
the row of lockers. In these will be found the expected
books and school supplies, but from this point on, in-

a place to meet, and memories of events and people to

£Z2CQ FOAs the junior higil students passed through these
doors for the first time, they launched their high school
career. No longer protected as they were in grade
school, the educational adjustment was a giant step for
some. Using this entrance every day since September,
they learned what to expect of themselves and their
school and prepared themselves for further education
and their futures.
JUNIOR HIGHMembers of the Junior High Student Council discuss a new activity during their meeting.
Headed by its president, Nina Vargas;
vice-president, Tressa Lucas; and sec-
retary-treasurer, Judy Holland the leg-
islative branch of the junior high had a
very active year.
James Peters and Dan Lillich load the Thanksgiving offering.
Among the activities undertaken by the
Junior High Student Council were the
operating of the Thanksgiving offering
for the Life Line Home, and the cleaning
of the trophy cases.
Student council officers met regularly with their sponsor, Mr. Fiel.

is typed and proofread on its way to the reader.
Tired arms grind out hundreds of copies of each page
of the Coltenian on the Mimeograph.
Coltenian ended fourth year
Starting out as a ninth grade English class
project, the Coltenian ended its fourth year
of publication this year. It is now considered
the official junior high paper and is read
with great enthusiasm by its subscribers.
Stories and features are written by the stu-
dents, typed on stencils, and mimeog'raphed
under the guidance of Miss Lola Perkins.
Most of the work is done after school by a
devoted staff. Lynn Carroll was this year’s
editor-in-chief and Ben Saye served as as-
sistant editor. Other editors were: ninth
grade, Barbara Hand; eighth grade, Yvonne
Vanoy; seventh grade. Candy Ward; sports.

Coach Sjoblom and Favrow attributed their
successful season to the defensive ability
of the team, their willingness to work hard,
and high spirits.
Led by president Candy Ward and
guided by sponsors Mrs. Shanklin
and Mr. Hanna, the Colt Club officers
steered the activities and kept the

7th and 8th grade cagers had fair season
Under the leadership of Mr. Warren Isaac,
the eighth grade basketball team compiled
a record of 4 wins and 10 losses. Their wins
were over Olathe, Ottawa, Rosedale, and
West. Although their season was not too
impressive, a few games were lost by only a
few points. They lost to Central by 1 point;
Highland, 2 points; and Bonner and North-
west, 3 points. Mr. Isaac was well pleased
with the work of these boys, who practiced
in the morning before school.
Behind the coaching of Mr. Darrell Sjoblom,
the seventh grade basketball team ended
their season with a record of 4 wins and 5
losses. Coach Sjoblom had much praise for
his inexperienced charges and is expecting
great things from them as they develop.
Because of the large number of boys out,
they were able to sport a second team. This
group finished with a 3-5 season.

Rodney Moore displays his hurdling form during a warm-up
Although the seventh graders won no meets and
set no records, they did participate and learned
to compete. The main g'oal of this squad was to
start training- in fundamentals for the various
track and field events. The coaches said that
several of the boys showed promise.
Coaches Allison, Fitzgerald, and Isaac agreed
that the eig'hth grade boys should afford a few
surprises as freshmen, if they learn to discipline
themselves. John Simmons, the only eig'hth
grader to place in the city meet, took second in
the 220 yard dash.
Members of the junior high track squad finished
high this year in their meets. The ninth graders
fared well at the city meet. Mike Palmer, who
set a new Argentine junior high shot put record,
50’ 3%”, placed second in the shot put. Rodney
Moore, Bob Newton, George DeWeese, and David
Mason took second in the 880 yard relay. David
Mason took fifth in the 100 yard dash. By the
end of the season the freshmen had won five of
their seven meets. The coaches stated that these
fine boys should be some help in the senior high
program next year.
