THE PRINCIPAFS LETTER
Here at Argo Communityl-Iigh School, for approximately ten months ot the
year, live 800 people: students, members of the faculty, and non-teaching
employees. The school is a community Within communities. Here We have
division of interest, aptitudes, Work, study, learning, teaching, and playing.
The school is a community at Work, a place Where young men learn shop-
craft and trades, Where young Women are trained to be homemakers, Where
potential professional musicians, teachers, dentists, doctors, lawyers, engineers,
and Writers are in the making. Opportunities are afforded for fun, recognition,
and professional performance. How to live together and how to work together
are the core of the citizenship training at Argo High.
'There is an exceptionally fine reciprocity of community agencies, societies,
clubs, and civic organizations with the educational endeavors that exist here.
Seniors: As you leave the school to make your way in lite, cling to the
abiding theme of the Weekly Maroon: "All Rights Grant Others".
Remember the Athletic Code:
A-Always Be Courteous.
R-Razz Not Your Opponents.
G-Give All Abilities To Win.
O-Orderliness ls Next To Godliness.

"Somewhere in a schoolroom today under the care of an unknown teacher
is a child who in his own time, grown to maturity, will lead the world away
from War and toward peace. The affection planted in that child's life by wise
guidance, the sense of right values with which he is constantly surrounded,
the integrity and initiative that are fostered in his unfolding life will come to
fruition in a mighty service to the human race . . . " 'k

"Any kind of good teaching has in it high dourage. To
keep the classroom free and vital and on an even keel
in these times of tension, of home-front economic strife,
and of pupils whirled about in the rip tide of propaganda,
requires a nerve and a sense of battle every bit as good
as that of a mate standing night Watch in a packed con-
voy. For dernocracy's work is never done.
"Besides, teaching has in it a large adventure into the
human soul. lt is not just the seating of a pupil at a desk,
putting a book in his hand and hearing the lesson: but it
is the giving of the teacher's total inner self: counseling
the shy little mite, helping youth battered by circum-
stances, dreaming with the talented, bolstering the self-
esteem of the down and out, trying to reach the mentally
slow, polishing the manners of the crude, bringing de-
linquents into an understanding of their true worth-all
these day and night . . . " 'ff

It was just a year ago this spring that our community had a championship
baseball team. The l948 Argolite honors these Argonauts! They were South
Suburban Conference champions, district champions, sectional champions, and
they were in the quarter-finals in the state championship at Peoria! Three
cheers for the team! Three cheers for Coach Cook!
Looking especially good for the l948 season are: George Hebding, Charles
Neerman, Charles Leimgruber, Fred Threm, Milton Bohannion, Art Leimgruber,
Eugene Schmitz, Wesley Howell, Booker Haynes, Thomas Esposito, lames Copp,
William Bray, Ioe Sparacino, William Scoby, Thomas Hebding.
The program of athletics for girls offers opportunities for developmental and
corrective gymnastics as vvell as learning and sharing in cooperative and re-
sponsible action. The final objective is good health and a sound philosophy of
life. CSee G.A.A. pages!
Weight lifting and apparatus groups Coften unknown to the community?
contribute a great deal to the developmental side of the high school boy. The
progress, the achievements, and the physical development of some of our
boys has been tremendous.

quired of all freshmen

edge of the forces and

Economic geography is
especially pertinent in this
community since our larg-
est industrial plant uses
i raw material from the
farms of the surrounding
area. Thus, the subject
matter taught is closely
related to the activities of
many workers in the corn-
rnunity. This subject de-
velops an understanding
of the farmer and his prob-
Obtaining practical experience, students do jobs in restricted quantities for
their own churches, clubs, and non-profit organizations. This incentive results
in more attention to detail and produces some very fine printing results, a real
service to the community. CSee Weekly Maroon pagesj
THE, CLASSROOM AND THE COMMUNITY
To see the service of mathematics
to the community, it is only neces-
sary to consider life without numbers.
Without mathematics, we should
have no cars, planes, trains, bridges,
electricity, or large buildings, for
math is essential to all engineering.
We would not even have any house
numbers. Stores would be impossible
for we should have no money. ln
short, our civilization would be gone,
and We should live as savages.
CEditor's note: Myll
Chemistry has taken on a New Look since the development of atomic
fission. Things beyond human imagination are possible. There is thus a
necessity that all high school students study chemistry.
This science encourages the young person to appreciate the things of nature,
to know better the plants and animals, to protect himself from disease, and
to protect the forests and wild life. With a knowledge of biology, a citizen
lives a more healthful, useful lite.

"Scholarship is more than high grades. There is involved a
yearning for the truth, a desire for greater understanding of the
lessons we are taught: in short, a love of learning."-Dick Morgan

Parents in this community are generous in their praise of
Miss Harriet Hendershot, who deserves much credit for her
devotion to the programs of the National Honor Society. Over
a period of twelve years, Miss Hendershot, Dean ot Girls, has
each year Worked out a remarkable program of dignity and
beauty, a program ot finished perfection and excellence.
That Miss I-lendershot's sterling Worth to the community is
continuously recognized is evidenced by the almost daily
visits and calls not only of parents but also of former pupils.
When Miss Hendershot celebrated her 25th anniversary three
years ago this spring, with memories of Argo High going back
to the days before either section of this building was in exist-
ence, she received hundreds of testimonials, all in the same
tenor: "Miss Hendershot, you are a very important, much loved
part of this community."

market prices, inflation, budgets, and current events dealing with money or
trade are given much consideration. A knowledge of budgeting will be helpful
when the student first obtains a position.

FUTURE HOMEMAKERS OF AMERICA
Fashionwise young people of this community look forward to style shows held
each spring at Argo Hi. This year the NEW LOOK was delineated by
the Simplicity Pattern Company on March 16. The l:'.H.A. sponsored this
showing of lovely fashions, and the lovely, lively models were the girls ot
the homemal-:ing classes. These girls gave their own style show on May 16,
when they delighted the feminine audience with their own creations: the New
Look for morning, noon, and evening wear. Miss Walton and Miss Bringman
are the clothing instructors.
MARTHA SCHOONVELD, Homemaking Ill, deserves special mention for
splendid creative work in this department.
The New Look is brought to the dining table by the girls studying food.

We felt big entering high school as green freshies. We showed we weren't
so small by running a close second in the football contest with lovely Ann

our queen candidate. Defeated again by the seniors, we were determined to
win the basketball contest! Vivacious Lois Lind and our slogan "Win with
Lindl" gave us the spirit to win. At the last basketball game, all were tense
and waiting for the news, "Lois Lind, the Queenlf' This was one time we did
not bow to the mighty seniors!
Class sponsors: Mr. Williams and Miss Buser.
In our junior year, eight fellow classmates were elected to the National

The Quiet Secrets of the Tavern
By Lorraine Kriz
The play is over and the corsaqes are put
away. For some, the evening is forgotten: for
others, the door of a wonderful evening has
been softly closed, but not locked.
Let us re-open the closed door and join the
cast as we recapture moments of fun.
I remember the farewell of the Vagabond. I
owe a lot to this romantic fellow of the world.
And you, Ierry, l'm sure you remember for you
did a marvelous job of portraying him.
Remember the trouble we had getting our
costumes? The day of the matinee, Tedi, You,
and I had to go home to pick up Dick's outfit,
and your coat!
And you, Bill. Remember carrying Fred
around? Those positions were really laugh
provoking. Dick was to say, "Why, it's Tom
Allenl"-And he could.n't even see him!
What about the dust that was raised every
time the gun went off! Could we forget that?
And the times that Bob or Graham dropped
Tedi? We really had some good laughs then!
Those itchy black woolen stockings we wore!
And in the dressing room. We needed traffic
lights. But we had a great time!
Remember piling into Mr. Hauswald's car
after rehearsals, always at least 9 or 10 of us?
When he got the new car, we had to take turns.
Remember the time we pushed the old cor right
down in to Argo? We really did a little bit of
Remember Trudy Brodnicki, Mr. Hauswald's
right hand man?
And those times the prompters had to tell us
this or that!
And you, Larry. Remember the red tape to
get the guns and handcuffs? That was some-
But best of all-the fun we had! Remember?

ALL GOD'S CHILLUN GOT SHCES BUT ME!
By Ieanne La Roshe, English IV
Selecting a pair of shoes can be either gay
or grueling, all depending upon the way you
look at it. If you like to sit in a leather-covered
futuristic chair and watch a pile of shoe boxes
grow up behind a stout little man whose collar
looks as if it were too tight for him, you probably
get a big bang out of it. I would rather go bare-
At first, the shoe salesman is extremely po-
lite, pointing out the good features Coh, never
the bad onesli of each shoe in honeyed tones.
After the first seven try-ons, however, his man-
ner alters noticeablyp his conversation is con-
fined to an occasional muttered "That's what
you said you wanted", or "That's the same size
as the other one," and finally "Do you have
anything at all in mind?"
He looks so flushed and pathetic that you
really want to leave a tip, as with a hysterical
"Thangzinnyway," you scoot for the door, feel-
ing somewhat as the Pilgrim Christian must
have felt when the burden rolled off his back.
No matter how hard you try, what approach
you use, or how superior the manner you as-
sume, you can't win! When you do finally
track down that elusive pair of shoes, my Friend,
you're going to need them!
I M A G I N A T I O N
By Lucille Gerches, English III
There was once a gay land in which a mag-
nificent castle stood. The castle was made of
diamonds, rubies, and sapphires: it was sur-
rounded by a wall made of gold. In the castle
courtyard, there were flowers the colors' of the
rainbow and trees of stately form. The trees
were filled with birds which sang like warblers
sent from heaven.
The land was ruled by a very beautiful prin-
cess named Imagination. Even though they
weren't rich, her subjects very happy, for they
loved and worshipped Imagination. Imagina-
tion was never lonely, for she used to roam
through the country visiting her friends of na-
ture. The princess loved to play with her sub-
ject's children for they were just like her own.
One day when the princess was walking
through the woods, she didn't see or hear her
friends of nature. Something strange had hap-
pened! Imagination began to weep under an
A squirrel poked his head out of the tree and
told the princess: "Tenseness is coming. Flee,
Imagination! Lock yourself in your castle!"
Imagination fled and just locked the castle
door as Tenseness tried to get in. His main idea
was to make Imagination his slave. There was
one thing wrong. He couldn't get to her!
As Imagination was looking from her window
one day, she saw her friend Relaxation ap-
proaching in the distance. She was very hap-
py, for she knew he was the only one that
could defeat Tenseness in battle and free her
from her imprisonment. As Relaxation ap-
proached the castle, everything came back to
life. Tenseness, already defeated, fled. Imagi-
nation was once more free!

A POEM AND TWO THEMES.Eng1ish I
F A T H E R
By Lorraine Sokolnick
At supper time I must not shout,
At relatives who are about.
Father though jumps from his seat,
And says, "Lord, when may we eat?"
I think it better if he roared,
At relatives and not the Lord!
THINGS THAT SOUND SILLY
Did you ever stop to think of how silly some
things sound? For instance, did you ever think
of how silly square feet and cubic feet sound?
I've always heard of flat feet, but when I hear
of square feet and cubic feet, I am greatly
At assembly one day we had an excellent
speaker who brought to our attention how
amusing some titles are. Well, I have some
silly ones too. Doesn't this sound silly? "The
Stars Will Remember, So Will I." I never knew
that the stars could remember anything.
Did you ever hear someone say he was go-
ing to the show? Think how silly that sounds!
When I was in the seventh grade, our social
studies teacher frequently told us to pass out
quietly. lt seemed she wanted us to faint with-
out disturbing anyone.
When a person says he's going to the dime
store, you'd most naturally think everything in
that store would cost a dime, that the store was
only worth a dime.
Vtfhen you say you're going to a pharmacy
for some medicine or some other drugs, it
sounds as if you were about to visit a farm.
Many of us have thought of how silly some
words and things we say sound. If all of us
got to thinking how silly some things sound,
we would choose our words more carefully,
especially the words of our songs.
By Mary Ann Bak
It was the morning of November 14, and all
was unusually quiet at Argo Hi. Corridors were
still: class rooms were apparently abandoned.
No sign of students anywhere!
Silence reigned, but only for a moment. The
next instance the building shook! Corridors
echoed with laughter coming from the audi-
torium. Here the student body had met for an
assembly. No one knew much about it, except
that there was to be a speaker on some educa-
tional topic. It was expected to be very boringg
on the contrary, it turned out to be a real suc-
cess. He surprised everyone with his educa-
tional talk, which kept the audience in rapt at-
tention and almost constant laughter.
The topic was one for which many people
have a dislike-poetry. Nevertheless, he proved
to many that there are all kinds of poems, some
of which are -exceptionally good, many very
humorous. I-Ie proved this by pointing out that
singing is a form of poetry which many people
enjoy. Taking one song in particular, "The
Girl That I Marry," he showed how silly it
sounds when read as a poem. I-le had the
whole audience gay with laughter.
Everyone came prepared to take a nap, but
the assembly turned out to be a laughing suc-
cess. !See page 4.7
