The passing of a school year is important to the students, regardless of their grade level. Each student was, in
part, responsible for making the year what it was; for without students, what would a school year be?
Even though the events were the same, this year was uniquely different because the participants were different.
For some, the year was the beginning of the fun they will share with others for the next six years. For others, it was
the end of their carefree life as a teen-ager and the beginning of their road to becoming an adult.
The objective of a yearbook is to give a pictorial as well as verbal record of all the happiness, sadness, gaiety,
and the seriousness that occurred during the passage of one year. This was the goal we strived to achieve as the
1967 yearbook staff.

Larry Cole exhibited muscular strength on the parallel bars.
Kathy Rader and Jan Channel! provided a change
of pace by singing folk songs.
Shows displayed local talents
The annual ABOPS Variety Show afforded
local talent the opportunity to audition and perform
before a large audience. The variety of talent ranged
from orchestral to modern combo music, from folk
songs to ventriloquism. Patrons of the Argentine
Band and Orchestra Patrons Society were headed
by Mrs. Jim Clayton, president; Mr. Les Wing,
vice-president; Mr. Jack Blythe, treasurer; and Mrs.
Jim Gilmore, recording secretary. Proceeds from the
show were used to buy instrumental music needs.
Members of the gym classes displayed muscular
and athletic prowess in the 1967 Gym Show. The
newly formed Girls’ Gymnastics Team was part of
the evening of games, dancing, precision balance,
and rhythm routines. Many extra-school hours of
practice and organization resulted as preparation for
fine entertainment before a pleased audience.
A unique favorite called "Texas Basketball'' was demonstrated
by seventh graders in the Gym Show.
Junior high chorus, accompanied by Mrs. Cross, filled the air with song.
Festival opened vocal season
Vocal expression in the form of show tunes,
spirituals, and classical music found its home as
members of the Seventh and Eighth Grade Choruses,
Senior High Chorus, Glee Club, Concert Choir, and
Choraliers opened their throats during the annual
performance entitled Fall Festival of Song. The two-
hour program held in the auditorium on November
22 highlighted such numbers as “Wonderful Copen-
hagen,” “Every Night When the Sun Goes In,” and

Halftime. The Mustang band marched onto
the field for its first performance of the year. To
a background of music, five Ford Mustang convert-
ibles carrying queen candidates and attendants
drove around the track and paused for the girls
and their escorts to take their places in the throne
area. The Mustang Club President, Paula Haas,
then gave the long-awaited announcement: “The
1966-67 Homecoming Queen is Miss Marsha Maxim.”

The theme “Moonlight and Roses” set a romantic
mood for the Homecoming Dance which was held in
the school cafeteria the night following the home-
coming game. Queen Marsha and her escort Herb
Marble led the first dance to the music of the Dave
VanZant Band. Musical arrangements such as “Moon
River,” “A Summer Place,” “Shadow of Your Smile,”
and “Moonlight and Roses,” added a sentimental
touch for students attending this memorable occasion.
Decorations and refreshments were furnished
by hard-working members of Student Council. Many
hours were spent making red, white, and pink roses
from crepe paper. Wrought-iron furniture placed
around a lighted fountain containing floating mums,
added atmosphere to make the dance more decor-
ative and enjoyable.
Many couples enjoyed dancing slowly in the romantic atmosphere.
As two students catch their breaths, other students and alumni danced the latest step to one of the band’s faster numbers.The apparel of Paula Erwin and Sue Ferguson becomes visual

Young models in clothing classes queue to display their own creations
in the fashion show.
From culottes to formats and from slacks to
skirts, the fashion show presented by Miss Mason's
clothing classes offered a pleasant afternoon for local
PTA members. Argentine’s young seamstresses
culminated their efforts of selecting or designing,
sewing, and finally modeling their handiwork when
they appeared on the raised platform, gracefully
turned while Miss Mason described their attire,
and left the platform after the applause of the audi-
ence. The show, the theme of which was Fashion
Fun. was part of the annual Founders' Day program

Young spellers had their chance on May 4 to
remain standing and to continue spelling more and
more difficult words —some of which they had never
heard. Mrs. Hoy never ran out of words until she
found the building champion —ninth grader Marilyn
Odell. Janice Simons, Grade 7, and Opal Holliday,
Grade 8, also received certificates for being the
champion spellers of their classes. Special recog-
nition was given at a city-wide awards assembly.Erwentcr convinced the geriatrics members in The Silver Whistle that a bazaar would benefit them.
Aspiring young actors and actresses
Miss Trip (Connie Adams) and Erwenter (Joe Morales) pondered
their futures in The Silver Whistle.
The Mustang Club presented The Silver Whistle
as the first play of the year. This comedy showed
the feelings of older people and how we sometimes
forget that they, too, are human. The cast consisted
of Russell Winkler, Janice Rhodes, Linda Clement,
Mary Ann Franco, Mike Andrade, Joe Morales,
Gregory Whiters, Don Thatcher, John Paine, Marsha
McMahon, Nancy Settle, and Mike Lamb.
A mother’s hold on her sons can sometimes
prove to be very dangerous, and this was shown in
the play The Silver Cord, presented by the junior
class. Mrs. Phelps (Janice Rhodes) had a constant
hold on her sons, Robert and David (Tim Lietzen
and Joe Morales).
Mrs. Phelps served tea in The Silver Cord.

Even the constant attacks made by David's
wife would not convince Mrs. Phelps that she was
wrong. More trouble occurred as Hester, Robert's
fiancee, tried to kill herself. Other cast members
were DeeAnna Berns, Pam Vaccaro, and Danese
The Imaginary Invalid, an adaption by Moliere,
was presented as the last play of the year by the
senior class. This satire about a man’s reaction to
illness and medicine offered a highly entertaining
evening for the audience as Argan (Tim Lietzen)
showed what an imagination can do. Other members
of the cast were Gwen Hauser, Connie Estes, Janice
Rhodes, Anna Bobo, Harry Alcorn, Nancy Settle,
Terry Ryan, Tess Banion, and Joe Morales.
Cleant (Harry Alcorn) and Angelica (Gwen Hauser) sang an
unusual love song for Angelica's father in The Imaginary Invalid.

Twas the night of the Sno-Ball and silvery white
flakes were falling as couples arrived for an evening
of dancing and fantasy. The library had been trans-
formed into a live depiction of “The Night Before
Christmas,” the theme of the dance. A stocking was
hung with care for each couple, and a small fireplace
with note and cookies for Santa provided additional
decor to enhance the Christmas spirit. Some couples
peeked through a picture window to view a child
asleep with “visions of sugar plums dancing in his
head,” while others danced to the music of Dave
Van Zant and his orchestra. One wall was graced
by a huge mural of Santa and his reindeer and oppo-
site it an impressive view of the Kansas City skyline
was seen. As the dance proceeded, Santa arrived
to crown Miss Debby Lillich the 1966-67 Sno-Ball
Queen. The traditional roses were bestowed on her
by Student Council president David Wing. Queen
Debby and her escort Jim Stephan then led the
Queen’s dance. The evening came to a close as
couples drifted away from the fantasy of the not-to-be-
forgotten night, the 1966 Sno-Ball.Santa crowned the 1967 Sno-Ball Queen, Debby Lillich.
Sue Ferguson and Bob Tucker paused to admire the Sno-Ball

A wave of anticipation filled the room as Santa prepared to crown the queen.
13Hula-hooping hia way across the line, Greg House
introduced a little "Boogaloo” dancing.
Riddle: When was it that Argentine students
had a giant omelet contest? Hint: The girls wore
pants and carried boys’ books. Answer: Twirp Week.
The Twirp Week activities, sponsored by Stu-
dent Council, were held after school for a complete
week. A hula-hoop contest, a shave-a-balloon contest,
the annual tug-of-war and egg toss, a water balloon
fight, and a dance were fun-filled ways to gain pro-
ceeds to support an orphan overseas.
Debby Saye found out that even Burma Shave and Gillette blades
won’t insure against breaking balloons.

joyed a breakfast of fruit cocktail, ham, rolls, milk,
and juice at 8:00. Then students listened to the proph-
ecy and were herded into the gym for graduation

The 1967 Board of Education was comprised
of six outstanding community leaders. The
Board appointed Mrs. Scoville and Dr. Fletcher
to fill the vacancies created by the death of Mr.
Vaughn and the resignation of Mr. Edwards.
Kansas City, Kansas, has entrusted to these
individuals the responsibility for educating its
children. New for the Board this year were quar-

The daily activities of students were made
easier and more enjoyable by the administrative
staff and their assistants. Student helpers relin-
quished their study hall to assist in the library,
clinic, and cafeteria.
With the guidance of Mrs. lone George, director,
the cafeteria women followed menus and cooked
meals to satisfy the appetites of the students. Stu-
dent helpers kept the cafeteria clean and operated
the cash registers. Mrs. Muck and Mr. Linde, li-
brarians, supervised the library, and student helpers
ran errands, stamped cards, shelved books, and
repaired damaged books. Miss Koester, school nurse,
looked after the students’ health and her assistants
helped by typing, recording, and filing the necessary
reports. The office clerical workers were kept busy
helping students and faculty with a multitude of
problems. They also kept attendance records,
recorded grades, and collected money. If student
problems required personal guidance oV counseling,
the counselors were available for consultations.
The custodial staff were charged with the respon-
sibility of keeping the school clean and the grounds

Communicative skills became
increasingly important in this age
The English department used many different
techniques to stress to the students the importance
of skill in written and oral communications. New in
the department this year was the combining of lit-
erature and composition. Selling paperback books
was also a new undertaking, which ended with much
success. Two movies were sponsored by the English
department: A Tale of Two Cities and The Ox Bow
Incident. Miss Hazel Kier, a former Argentine
graduate, retired this year as Coordinator of Secon-
dary Education. Administrators, faculty, and stu-
dents appreciated her many dedicated years of

New books and equipment provided a more
active program for the students in the math and
science departments. Freshman math and science
courses taught students material of practical appli-
cation and also prepared them for beginning algebra
and biology. Field days to a pond and a nearby vacant
lot and increased laboratory work with living
organisms were given greater stress in the biology
classes with the adoption of Biological Science
Curriculum Studies. The biology department
increased its staff by adding Mr. Rapp to the faculty.
New demonstration equipment facilitated the chem-
istry classes’ primary teaching technique, direct
experimentation. Throughout the year the faculty
coordinated efforts to provide for students a smooth
continuity of programmed learning.

Social studies prepared citizens
Mr. Bruce Eighmey files references for his world his-
tory and geography classes.
The main purpose of the social studies courses
was to develop well adjusted, active, and informed
citizens. This purpose was better achieved through-
out the school year by using all available teaching
aids, such as films, tapes, and records. A visit to
the mental hospital in Osowatamie proved to be an
enlightening experience for the psychology class. In-
formed speakers, such as Mr. L. D. McDonald, a
lawyer in the greater Kansas City area, spoke to
several of the social studies classes about law courts
and court systems. An increased awareness by stu-
dents toward international affairs was encouraged
by teachers as the war in Viet Nam continued to be
a major topic of the time and Surveyor III recorded
findings from its moon shovel.

Practical arts and fine arts availed personal enrichment
Both vocational and personal-use benefits were
derived from the variety of courses in business ed-
ucation. In the fall the installation of new equip-
ment added a new look to the department. Home
economics and fine arts courses added to the stu-
dents’ personal enrichment. Expressing themselves
in art and music classes, students also developed
a greater appreciation for the arts. Girls also made
garments, prepared meals, and learned other domes-
tic arts in the home economics department. Proj-
ects for these classes included displays and dis-
cussions of crystal and china by a local store, sex
education lectures by nurses, and Christmas teas
with faculty members as guests.

Job skills and bodies developed
The vocational education courses, including
Smith-Hughes, were offered to those students hoping
to find possible careers in vocational-technical
arts. Students in these courses entered objects of
high quality in the Industrial Arts Fair.
The physical education and health classes were
offered to any students as electives, but were re-
quired courses in the seventh, eighth, and tenth
grades. Students developed muscle tone and co-
ordination by participating in games and rhythm
movement exercises. Girls interested in gymnastics
and rhythm exercises joined the Girls' Gymnastics
group. They demonstrated their skills, learned after
school, in the Gym Show. Facts about drugs, first
aid, and the care of teeth were taught in health
classes. The health and gym classes were alternated
daily throughout the school year.

Selection and qualification for the award is
based on the third nine weeks’ grades. Students
must have earned a 1.5 average or better while
enrolled in at least four units of credit requiring
considerable academic preparation. Such courses
would involve much study outside of the classroom.

Moli re’s The Imaginary Invalid.
The National Thespian society is an educational
honor and service organization of teachers and stu-
dents established for the advancement of dramatic
arts in the secondary schools. The aims of the society
are two-fold: (1) to establish and advance standards
of excellence in all phases of dramatic arts, and (2)
to create an active and intelligent interest in dra-
matic arts among boys and girls in secondary schools.
To become a member of Thespians, one has to
earn ten points. Each point signifies ten hours of
work on a play. The points are earned by either
having a lead in a play or working behind the curtain.
The officers were: Pam Vaccaro, president;
Karen Kent, vice-president; Gwen Hauser, secretary-
treasurer; and Anna Bobo, historian. The club was
sponsored by Mr. Hunt.

boosting school spirit by participating in the tra-
ditional bonfire held during football season, by putting
on skits during pep assemblies, and by painting
signs that were hung throughout the school the day
before a game was to be played.

The six varsity cheerleaders were judged and
chosen last spring after having tryouts, and last
summer these girls attended a cheerleading clinic
in Ottawa. The six junior varsity cheerleaders were
chosen in the fall after having tryouts. Practice
sessions were usually held once a week after school,
where perfection of old cheers was achieved and new'
cheers were learned.
Junior varsity cheerleaders for 1967 were Eileen Mackleman. Teresa Banion, Judi McCamish, Thcron Stockdale. Linda Hale, and Karen Kent.
65Jack Simons and Bcrnie Bialck seemed to be learning the meaning
of teamwork during A-Club initiation.
The Argentine A-Club, membership of which
includes football, basketball, and track lettermen,
actively promoted the school athletic programs.
Money to finance their projects was gained by selling
pencils and sponsoring dances. This money was used
primarily to purchase new athletic equipment and
to help support the weightlifting program. A-Club
also sponsored a bus for the school’s athletes in-
terested in attending the Fellowship of Christian
Highlighting the year’s activities was the All-
Sports Banquet, held each spring to honor the sports-
men for their accomplishments. This year’s officers

Mustang Club 1967
The Honor Pep, displaying the players’ names on balloons, supported the basketball team at each game.The body of the Mustang Club was supported by the backbone of these Honor Pep members.
Election to Honor Pep was the reward members
of the Mustang Club received when they showed
exceptional school spirit and when they worked
extensively for the club. One of their main activities
was to help paint signs which were put up throughout
the school before games. They also helped with the
preparation of skits for assemblies, with planning
for the homecoming dance, with the organization of
trips for away games, and by hanging crepe paper
on the goal posts for home games. Honor Pep spon-
sored a contest between the sophomores, juniors,
and seniors of the Mustang Club to see which class
could boast the most members. The winning class,
the sophomores, won a free bus ride to the Rosedale
game. The work of Honor Pep members and the spirit
they displayed provided additional support for the

Mustang Club members learned a new cheer led by the cheerleaders ut a
Friday-morning Mustang Club meeting.
At the beginning of the 1966-67 school year,
school spirit was again enlivened by participants
of the Mustang Club. Consisting of approximately
150 members from the sophomore, junior, and
senior classes, the club accepted the task of
cheering at football and basketball games. They
instilled a sense of loyalty throughout the school
by painting signs, leading snake dances, and
displaying enthusiasm at pep assemblies.
The club’s activities included creating the
setting for the homecoming dance, “Moonlight
and Roses,” and the coronation ceremonies
beforehand; the Mustang Club play, The Silver
Whistle; exchange programs with Highland Park,
Olathe, and Rosedale; and a trip to the Kansas

similarities between France and America. In the
fall the club attended the French play, Les Femmes
Savantes de Moliere, at Shawnee Mission East. They
also co-sponsored a party on All Saints Day with the

Sixteen members of the secretarial training
class composed this year's Tironian Club. The club’s
purpose was to include activities which would help
students become better qualified secretaries. Listen-
ing to businessmen, visiting the local bank, and
selling candy as a yearly project were activities of
the Tironians. The end of the year was highlighted
by a restaurant dinner engagement. Officers for
Tironians were Linda Waller, president; Audrey Belt,
vice-president; Debby Liilich, secretary-treasurer;
and Mr. George Houghton, sponsor.
Observing and doing are essential parts of learn-
ing, and this was accomplished by five senior mem-
bers of the local chapter of the Future Teachers
Association. Linda Croy and Barbara Holwick spent
several afternoons exploratory teaching at Emerson
Grade School. Ella Jo Taylor and Sharon Blanks ob-
served and taught at Noble Prentis, while Linda
Ingold traveled to Stanley for her enlightening
experiences. A dinner for senior members, sponsored
by the local teachers' association, was served at
the Trinity Lutheran Church in April to honor the
participants of the exploratory program.
Individual talks with AHS faculty members and
student teachers, participation in city and state
wide meetings, and the viewing of films prepared
the students for more teaching experiences by help-
ing them to learn all they could about the teaching
profession. Members traveled to Kansas State Uni-
versity at Manhattan, where the state convention
was held. As a money-making project for the club,
members undertook again the responsibility of sell-
ing AHS stationery.
This year's officers included Linda Croy, presi-
dent; Ella Jo Taylor, vice-president; Vicki Howard,
treasurer; Pam Vaccaro, secretary'; and Linda Ingold

Members of the Glee Club increased their skills,
appreciation, and enjoyment of music. Along with
the Senior High Chorus, they performed in the “Kail
Festival of Song” and the “Spring Concert.” Stu-
dents who had a keen interest in singing joined the
Choraliers. They increased their understanding of
advanced forms of music by performing many times
throughout the year: at a PTA Meeting, at the
Mennonite Children's Home and for retired teachers
at Christmas, in the Christmas Concert, at the
Wyandotte City Festival, and at the Olivet Institu-
tional Baptist Church. The Triple Trio Ensemble
consisted of a group of nine girls and three alternates.
Formed during the second semester, the group per-
formed at the Wyandotte City Festival, the State
Festival at Emporia, and the “Spring Concert.”
The Choir gave students a way in which to express
themselves and to improve singing skill. They per-
formed in the “Fall Festival of Song” and the Christ-
mas Concert. The Choir participated in the City
Festival at Wyandotte and the E.K.L. Festival at
Bonner Springs. Other performances were given at
Baccalaureate and graduation. Officers of the choir
were Don Coe, president; Janice Burge, vice-president;
Bernadine Lewis, secretary-treasurer.

Experience gained through laboratory work was the goal
of the journalism class under the guidance of Mr. John
Wherry. The work of many of these aspiring young writers
appeared in print in the school paper, the Argentian. Knowl-
edge of all aspects of journalism was a necessary tool used by
the students who published a total of sixteen copies for the
year. In addition, a student directory was compiled, edited,
and published by the journalism class for the benefit of
Writing alone was not the cause of the wide interest
shown in the Argentian. Photography of good quality stimu-
lates interest in any paper. Argentian photographers Ray
Gonzalez and Herb Marble not only took the pictures, but
also developed the negatives and printed the pictures.
Neither copy nor pictures alone can create an interesting
and informative paper. These two essential factors must be
combined in such a way that people are attracted to the paper
and derive a certain pleasure from reading it. The efforts of
the entire staff for 1967 caused the Argentian to be just this
kind of paper.
The job of assigning stories, making photo requests and
layout dummies was the responsibility of each of the paper's
editors. Second semester brought changes: four different
students became the Argentian s editors, thus gaining ex-
perience in management. The main responsibility was carried
by the editors shown on this page, but the paper was the end
result of the work of the entire staff.

was put forth to produce the 1967 Mustang. Several
new features were included in the yearbook: an addi-
tion of eight pages to the original 120 pages made
possible the inclusion of the Honors Section and
provided more spaces for candid shots in the Classes
Section. Members largely responsible were Nikki

Melodious Band and spirited Pep Band
The band concert. “Rhapsody in Blue and Gold," was given by one of the largest bands in Argentine’s history.
80The AHS marching hand members, laden with
their instruments, paraded for the spectators at home
games. Not only did they provide entertainment for
the city-wide PTA Founders Day meeting at Wyan-
dotte, but they also performed in the parade and
participated in the half-time activities while attend-
ing Band Day at Emporia. The band also took part
in the EKL and the City Music Festivals. The high-
light of the year was the annual band concert,
“Rhapsody in Blue and Gold.”
The pep band, chosen from the top musicians of
the senior band, promoted school spirit at pep
assemblies and basketball games by playing popular
and improvised tunes. Among the various activities
sponsored for the music group throughout the year
was a tour to four area grade schools to play Christ-
mas carols and upon returning to AHS to sound
Christmas carols in the halls. Officers of the band

Appearing as a unit of one co-ordinated team
rather than as a group of individuals was the goal
strived for by the Argentinettes of 1967. Gwen
Hauser, head Argentinette, was chiefly responsible
for the routines used in the girls' performances. The
other girls contributed ideas and practiced many
hours to help achieve uniformity. Marching boots,
fur headbands, and pom-pons accented the girls'
attire at the Variety Show, Emporia Band Day, and
at all home football games. Proudly spelling Argen-
tine, the girls could be seen in front of the pep club

Sophomore boys developed poise for future years
Much experience was gained by the sophomore
basketball squad this season. Although they won but
one game, the boys learned much about basketball.
The game they won was against Olathe, with a victory
of 15 points. The starters were David Hollenbeck,
Richard Loya, Mario Marron, Mike Mustain, and
Buddy Terry. Mike Mustain and Richard Loya led
in the scoring column, while Buddy Terry and David

The 1967 track team entered the East Kansas
League Meet as the defending champions. However,
members soon discovered that more depth and better
balance were needed to retain that title. The team
instead won third place in the meet. Nevertheless,
many fine performances were made by individuals I
of the 1967 team. Larry Hurt broke the school record
in the 220 in 21.6. He tied the 100-yard dash record
in 9.9 and ran the 440 in 48.7 at the State Meet to j
pick up a second place medal. This placed him as one
of the top 15 quartermilers in the country. Jim Madl !
advanced his own school record to 199 feet in the
Bishop Miege Relays. Jim also won the javelin title
for the third time in a row in both the Argentine
Relays and in the East Kansas League Meet. David
Richardson took up distance running this year and
finished by downing the school two-mile run record,
set in the Argentine Relays with a time of 10:40.0.
The 880 relay team consisting of Larry Hurt, David
Mason. Bobby Johnson, and George DeWeese, won
the traveling EKL trophy by winning in 1:34.1.
David Mason won a trip to the State Meet along with
Larry Hurt by qualifying in the Regional 220 in 2.3.Wynne Jennings, Jim Madl, and Glenn Bennett focus their energies
on throwing the javelin.
Sixteen members of this year's Argentine track
team earned varsity letters. They received training
under Head Track Coach K. E. Clohecy, Jump
Coach Bob Hampton, Weight Coach Lee Flachs-
barth, and Distance Coach Loren Green.

Ray Balandron. George Higgins, and Alvin Phipps. Not pictured is Larry Snyder.
Cross-country team braved rugged workouts during rugged season
This year's cross-country team did not do so well
in its all-over record, but they gained much ex-
perience and conditioned themselves for track in
the coming season. They finished sixth in EKL and
traveled to Ottawa for a 13-team invitational meet.
They also went to the Regionals to gain experience
in a big race. Coach Green commented that the boys
had worked very hard and that he was looking for-
ward to next year. Lettermen for this year were
Robert Blass, George Higgins, Larry Hurt, Dave
Richardson, Ray Balandron, and Glenn Tucker.
Larry Hurt and Ray Balandron listened attentively to their coach's instructions.
George Higgins stepped lightly on the final stretch
of the two-mile run at Bonner.Weightlifting, here at Argentine since 1961,
is for those boys who want to be an athlete or become
a better one. The season starts after football in
November and ends in March just before track.
Boys not out for basketball, but who still want to
be in some sport, may lift weights in order to keep
their bodies in condition for the span between the
sports. Weightlifting, however, is not a continuation
of football. The boys involved in the weightlifting
program this year were George DeWeese, George
Higgins, Wynne Jennings, Jim Keagy, Bob Kennedy,
Jim Madl, Dave Richardson, Jay Rose, John Russell,
and Denis Sullivan. The coach was Mr. K. E. Clohecy.
The main concentration of weightlifting is on
building the larger muscles of the body, as in the
arms and legs. The different lifts used in developing
these muscles are the military press, bench press,
incline bench press, arm curls, leg squats, toe raises,
overhead pullovers, lying tricepts, upright rolling,
bentover rolling, pectoralis major dips, and bent

of four sophomores and one junior, grabbed their
clubs and put on their walking shoes in preparation
for the practices and meets they would have during
the 1967 season. The team practiced at the Quivira
golf course two nights a week and practiced using
their short irons at Klopper Field. Nine-hole matches
were held four times at Quivira, twice at Ottawa,
and once at Olathe; and the eighteen-hole league
matches were held at Quivira and Olathe. Even
though the boys were winless this year, they had
many opportunities to improve their skills. Steve
Appleton, Mike Mustain, and Mike Smith received
varsity letters; and Robert Danks and Danny Shoaf,
B-team letters. Coach Olander anticipates a nice
turnout of sophomore boys for next season.

Enthusiastic Colt Club members supported
their teams this year by faithful attendance at all
home football and basketball games and by learning
and shooting victory cheers. For the first time in
several years, the 120-member organization sponsored
a trip by bus to Rosedale to cheer on its ninth grade
basketball team. Colt Club members also had their
own pep assembly, during which time the freshman
football boys were introduced, a skit was presented
and routines to songs were performed by the cheer-

Vivacious ninth grade cheerleaders were Mayetta Rees, Cindi
Henness, Diane Barker. SheHy Stockdale, and Gloria Martin.
Eighth and ninth grade cheerleaders used many
opportunities to arouse student enthusiasm. This
year was the second year the eighth grade has had
its own cheerleading squad, and hopeful girls were
given the opportunity to audition for the five-member
squad. Increased attendance for eighth and ninth
grade games held after school was one sign of
successful accomplishment for the junior high cheer-
leaders. Because of their hard work and enthusiasm,
these girls aroused a sense of participation for their
classes. Officers for 1966-67 were Sue Keith, presi-
dent; Susan Babcock, vice-president; ami Julie Ede-
mann, secretary-treasurer. The Colt Club and junior
high cheerleaders were co-sponsored by Mr. Loren

publication on an annual basis because of the en-
thusiasm of students and the worthwhile function
it served. The monthly publication offered news
and bits of gossip of interest to junior high readers.
Headed by Editor-in-chief Russ Ferree, staff members
included such things as a society column, creative
writing, sports and club activities, and advice from
Nellie Knowsit to the lovelorn. Staff members had
their first taste of journalistic responsibility, which
included getting story information, writing, typing,

Junior High Student Council
Junior High Student Council members were
elected in homerooms in September of 1966 and
functioned as representatives of the junior high stu-
dent body. Meetings were held every second Tuesday
of the month, and the junior high honor roll was
tabulated by them each nine weeks. One project
of the student council was to polish the trophies in
the south building. Officers this year were Shelly
Stockdale, president; Billie Braden, vice-president;
and Jerri Duncan, secretary. Sponsor was Vlr. Archie

Junior League Players
The Junior League of Kansas City, Kansas,
presented the premiere performances of its children's
theater production to seventh and eighth grade stu-
dents on February 24. Land of the Dragon told the
story of three jealous cousins who tried to prevent
the pretty princess from marrying and from taking
the throne. The cousins' attempts were foiled, how-
ever, when the princess identified the real dragon
and married its owner. The play was presented to
some 20,000 children in Wyandotte and sur-
rounding counties.Junior Hi-Y is a clui) which centers around
civic projects for club participants. Sports
activities and fun nights at the “Y” were weekly
events for the AHS members. The year’s ac-
tivities were highlighted by a candy sale, in
which all members participated, and the selection
of Bruce Armstrong, Tom Doran, Larry Flynn,
and Darrell Johnson to be pages for a day at the
State Capitol. The president was Tom Doran, and
the sponsor was Mr. Mark Wright.
The purpose of the Junior Y-Teens was to
help each member to grow as a person, to grow
in friendship with people of all races, religions,
and nationalities, and to grow in the knowledge
and love of God. This year’s Y-Teens group
strived to fulfill this purpose in many ways.
They gave many services in and out of the
community, which included sending pencils
to Viet Nam, contributing to the World Fellow-
ship Fund, contributing to the March of Dimes,
sending Easter treats to the Mennonitc Children's
Home, and observing the World Day of Prayer
program. Social events were also a part of this
year's program and included activities such as
a hayrack ride, a slumber party, a Mother-
Daughter Banquet, and a Christmas Party.

Thirty-one freshman football boys experienced 3-4 season
Freshmen boys knew that contact would be made each moment
after the ball was snapped.
Freshman football teaches a player self-discipline
and gives him the valuable experience he will use
as he moves up to the sophomore and varsity foot-
ball levels. The freshman squad had a taste of both
victory and defeat this year, and in the process it
learned the value of good sportsmanship. Final tallies
for the 1966-67 season were:

to pinpoint potential trouble spots.
The Argentine freshmen completed their most
successful season in several years. The eight-win,
three-loss record was even more significant con-
sidering the same team won only two games the
preceding year as eighth graders. Of the three losses,
two were thrilling contests with Central. In the first
game, the Colts pushed Central into two overtime
periods before losing. During the second encounter,
Argentine went down to defeat by one point, a game
also played at Central. Off the court, the team demon-
strated equally fine scholarship with six of the team
members being named to the honor roll. Argentine
will look to this group in the future as they have
demonstrated the potential of continued success
while moving up the ladder to varsity competition.
