We who are accustomed to the conveniences ot our present building cannot fully appreciate them, since we never attended school in the first building, a frame structure with tour rooms and a hall. ln 1920-1921 the grade school enrollment had grown to the extent that it was necessary for the high school to rnove to the old green building, which was located across the street from the Sears Roebuck Building' and which had been used as the Y. M. C. A. headquarters during the W-crld War. The .rooms in the building were separated by beaver board partitions, which prevented the few teachers frcm con' cealing their classroom secrets, problems, and joys from each other. Since McElroy Dagg school was completed in 1923-1924, the high school moved back to its lcrmer building. The grades and the newly organized junior high school now used their new building. ln 1924-1925 the green building' was moved to the rear of the frame building and was transformed into an auditorium and gymnasium. At Christmas time in 1925 with what joy students and teachers received the splendid Christmas gift of the present high school building' with approximately twelve times as many rcorns as the first building. The additicn to the high schocl was opened in 1930-1931. F' I .il F' 1 455 , r. . M V' iq. P . if r- L. Y' 1. P B V' w..

V 1 K FOREWCRD The year 1917 stands out in the history of the school, for in 1917 we first appeared on the accredited list of Missouri schools as a third class school offering two years of approved work. ln 1921, an even more important date, we offered four years of work and were classified as al first class school. ln this year, we had two grad- uates and now in 1940 we have one hundred forty-five. In 1917 there were only three teachers and about twenty students and now we have grown to thirty-three teachers and over nine hundred students. Foremost among the early promoters of the school was Dr. McElroy Dagg who always said that the best was none too good for the students. ' For twenty-three years one of our faculty, Miss Amelia Keller, has grown with the school and helped it to grow. Two other teachers, Miss Clare Morrow, in 1921 and Miss Doris Arnold in 1922, identified themselves with the school and have aided in its development. These three by their long tenure of 'service can appreciate the progress made more than any other teachers in the system. V-L-X R Q ...dnine FOREWGRD ln a brief resume it is impossible to call attention to the progress made in various departments. In 1925-1926 the Commercial Department, so important in an industrial city, was added and in the following year the Music De- partment, both of which have shown great progress. In 1924 the first annual was published and by 1923-1924 football and basketball had made their appearance. Activities have played and are playing' an important part in the progress of the school. In the spring 1927 the Girl Reserve Club was organized, in 1931, the Science Club, and in 1933, the Commercial Club. However, the year 1934-1935 marked the beginning of many clubs such as 1-li-Y, Iournalism, Art, Home Economics, Honor, and the School Boy Patrol. It was also in this year that the school was granted permission to organize a National Honor Society and a National Athletic Scholarship. In Ianuary 1935 the Student Council, which has helped solve problems and assisted in the administration, was organized. As time marches on, may we continue to grow in mind, spirit, and soul, each one contributing something of which he and the school may be sincerely proud.

Efficient management of books, equipment, buildings, finances, " 1 teaching personnel, community relations, and hundreds of other administrative policies are Lua N important only in so far as they contribute to the Welfare of the pupils as they learn to live in an organization which prepares them for participation in a democratic society. T in developing this attitude it becomes necessary for all, administrator to pupil, to realize that J'-fi 'r" the other fellow has his privileges which must be protected and respected. The proper F- coordination of all of the school's facilities and activities in promoting such a program lui constitutes the chief function of good administration. li' 1 1 L, J 1"""H L, J is J c fc' 1 'I I c Li J b fr jj aj, , iff '- A 11?-:i"'?3.

Being composed of sixty-eight members in the seventh grade, it now is made up of seventY-TWO girls and seventy-three boys. I In the Seventh Qfflde many students moved away and several came to join our ever-growing class. A fL1DiOI-high orchestra, composed of many of our seventh graders, was organized and Bobby Zulauf iCi1'19d the high .school band and orchestra. Our various home rooms competed in baseball, volleyball, and basketball, proving that while the life of a seventh grader is none too exciting, it can be interesting. 'Perhaps our most successful undertaking during our eighth year of schooling was the junior-high operetta. We were certainly well represented in that glorious affair. Meanwhile, "Lucy" Evans was fast becoming known as an excellent violinist. Who would ever have guessed that Donald Britt and Bobby Bates had not long to wear their knee trousers? Ah! At last we became those much-talkedvabout freshmen and we were 195 strong! Then we were al- lowed' to have three members on the Pep Squad, then we could put on a school assembly: then we might go out for football and girls' sports: then we could elect beauty queens and a carnival queen, and then we could be initiated! And initiated we were! Can't you just see Frances Blogin and Mary lean Vincent now in their big overshoes and the raveled seams on their wrong-side-out dresses? How well I can remember the way we "wowed" them with our all-school assembly. Betty Hicks danced and we all marveled at her never having taken tap lessons. It can never be said that we didn't put our quota of trophies in the front-hall case, either. Our fresh- man basketball team with Carl McMillian, David Hunt, and Lester Ross won tournament after tournament. Then, when the second quarter honor roll was published, we could say we not only had talent, brawn, and beauty in our class but also had brains, for Evelyn Smith set the all-time record for honor roll points in the school. Have you ever heard of any person descending to a higher position? Well, that is what we did. We came down from the freshmen balcony to sit in the main auditorium like real students of N. K. C. At the first of the year we elected our class officers. Later we had a hilarious masquerade party in the boys' gym. Elise Atkins came disguised as a ghost of ghosts and not one of us could recognize her. Afterwards we walked uptown to the show and "Cactus" Welch hobbled along on the cane that was left from his costume. Those were the days! Again we put on a class assembly and we hear rumors that it was one of the year's best. l suppose they all enjoyed Villain Zulauf's romance with Heroine Midge Leonard. Some of us girls got to serve at the lunior- Senior Banquet and peek at the "going-ons" of those' sophisticated upper classmen. We knew it wouldn't be so long until we would be juniors, and at least second in importance. lunior play and junior carnival-the two most important features of any'junior's life! In fact, l think we will all agree that the junior year seems the most important in the North Kansas City High School. We really had a play-"George- and Margaret." All the people kept wanting to know ' who George and Margaret were. Weren't they surprised to find that neither appeared throughout the entire performance? Later in the year we started work on the carnival. We introduced a new type of queen contest and found that we had some exotic male specimen in our school, for we had five boys, yes, five, all clamoring for the queens crown. Our carnival parade was the best that any class has sponsored-We had more and better floats, even having a special fire truck decorated for the five girls finally chosen' as queens. Then, the zero hour arrived. The follies lwith Gertrudel, the country store fwith Victorl, the photo gallery twith Betty lol, the novelty booth fwith Dorothyl, and the many other features were all going' at once. lndeed, that was a hilarious night. Our last undertaking of the year was the junior-Senior Banquet. Everyone looked so grown-uppish teven Charlie Willhitel in his formal dress that evening. Who can deny that our junior year was successful? This year has come all too soon and it has passed much too quickly. lsn't it human to look forward to something in great anticipation and then, when the wish is granted, to feel disappointed and a little regretful? ln spite of these feelings a senior just can't help having the "time of his life," especially when he or she has nature's advantage of Leap Year. We started the year with the election of class officers, Pauline Hartmann being the only girl elected to a position. Who says this isn't a man's world? Norine French went through that thrilling stage all Pep Squad girls do when they first find they are a new member of that organization. We, the seniors, became more interested in the football and basketball games because the teams were composed of many of our classmates. At last the girls in our class won the membership drive sponsored by the Girl Re- serves. We found that Norma Barnes scored highest on the Senior Aptitude Test given by the state. Bugoutters and jitterbugs flocked to the dance we sponsored in the girls' gym. Miss Morrow told us that, according to the money cleared, we might even be called prosperous! Miss Hume had charge of the senior aptitude meetings. They were all very interesting and helpful. Owl Queens were elected and they had their pictures taken. Midge was a scream when she donned her formal and tapped in her saddle oxfords while the photographer suggested, "Look at the birdiel" Fellow classmates, we have yet to come one "sporting" good time-that exourjion 1.x'l1i5l1 is nearest and dearest to every students heart-the senior trip!

Different groups of girls have taken charge of these meetings, and they have proved to be most interesting. Midge Leonard brought .the idea back from the Y. W. C, A. camp, Camp Brewster, at Omaha, Nebraska, where she spent a week last summer. The Triangle plan of organization was used again this year after its successful inauguration last year. Evelyn Smith was president, and Miss Hume was advisor of the Senior Triangle. Martha Bell and Miss Arnold guided the Junior Triangle. Helen Richards and Miss Hutchison were in charge ot the Sophomore Triangle. The Triangle meet- ings were based cn interests of the girls. Midge Leonard was president ot the entire group and Miss Mary Hamlin was chief adviser. Highlights ot the year's work were the general meetings, Triangle meetings, cabinet meetings, the opening Be- versia patty, the Christmas service, the Christmas dance, the Palm Sunday breakfast, the Mother-Daughter banquet, numerous works of service, and a number of parties at the Y.

As a result the school newspaper doubled in size but was issused only every two weeks. New columns and pictures added to its attractiveness and the revised paper rnet with wide approval. Pictures of school interest were used extensively. A gossip column was started and was the most popular column in the paper. Other new features were columns about clubs, outstanding seniors, and teachers. The iirst semester the staff was organized by pages, and the second semester by editors with Victor Mathews as third quarter editor and Charles Willhite as fourth quarter editor.

Programs of solo and small ensemble groups were popular, reports were presented and recordings played. Dance orchestrations were secured and everyone either played or "joined in" on the vocal chorus. ln the spring the period was used largely for contest soloists to work with their accoompanists, and, of course, tor the planning of the new Band uniform drive. The Gag-Busters' assembly program tsponsored by Corny Horns Corporationl will not soon be forgotten. The members are: Betty Lou Richardson, Phyllis Stradtner, Iames Riley, Selma Murry, Doris Bird, Charlene Coom- ber, Eugene Custer, Marcella Duffey, Norma Louise Helmer, Iunior Brown, Billy Bob Porter, Audley Campbell, Iames Crockett, Doris Rupe, Billy Brown, Charles Cooper, Fred Sims, Ardin Burnidge, Lucille Evans, De Wayne Quilter, Paul Willoughby, Vernon Brown.

Each year large groups of beginning students are started, and this year tive classes are "making the grade" in the Iunior-Senior high and in three grade schools-a total oi one hundred and titty beginners. Besplendent in new dress uniforms, which the Band members and the recently formed Parents' Club have wcrlted hard to obtain, the band looks very handsome, and has won the approval oi the North Kansas City potions with its frequent public appearances, ' The Orchestra and Band are proud of their new rehearsal room, private practice rooms and their new individual instrunient lockers. The Spring Festival has been made a qualifying contest for the State Competition-Festival and N. K. C. ,zttiied the role oi host to twenty schools on April 4-5. 49 . ......

El 'I MIXED CHORUS J A . . . . . , . Song has always been a universal means for the expression of feelings and ideas. Tnus, using the song kg as a medium for group, as well as self-expression, the members of the Mixed Chorus discovered a "margin" of Q time for the enjoyment of the beautiful through participation in group singing and the study of music appreciation. A Beginning with the study of simple song-form as found in the folk music of all nations and continuing through the development of art music, as found in the madrigals and songs of Gibbons, Bennett, Praetorius, and Purcell, to the great sacred compositions of Bach, Handel, and Palestrina, each student came into possession of a rich r store oi fine music from the vast wealth of vocal literature. 1- ' The study of music appreciation by the Mixed Chorus applied not only to the music sung by the chorus but also to the music available through the use of records and the radio. Radio broadcasts of the opera and various musical programs ot outstanding artists and music organizations were listened to and discussed as part of the music-study of the chorus. 1 The culmination of the work of the chorus was reached in its participation in school and community activities.

Fires in homes are born of carelessness. Papers accum ulate in closets and basements. Old rags and discarded rubbish await but the right moment to spring into destructive flames. Prevent that destruction of your home by keeping rubbish cleared away. Electricity saves many hours of labor and drudgery in the home. It is a servant to mankindy but, if defects in wiring are neglected, great tragedies occur. Sorrow and grief are brought face to face with facts. The object of this club is to help in every way it canfto prevent fires from originating from carelessness that brings disaster to our homes and community.

Since this was the first game of the season the play of both elevens was ragged but the Tigers managed to whip a passing attack into order and crossed into pay dirt twice, while the Hornets failed to score. On the following Friday, came the annual battle with the Red Raiders from Pembroke Country Day. North Kan- sas City combined a powerful ground attack with sensational passing and crossed the Pem-Day goal line twice. During' the entire game the Red Raiders were never able to get within the Hornet twenty-yard line. With the fine showing of the week before to their credit the Hornets hoped for Victory No. 2, but failed. Although they were leading Haskell by a score of l4 to 13 at the end of the third quarter, the aerial attack of the boys from Lawrence was too much for the Hornet defense and the game ended with Haskell on the long end of a 25-to-14 score. T Although the defeat of the week before was the second or me season, the Hornets still had hopes of winning 'more than half of their contests and increased that hope by trouncing the Liberty Blue-lays, 28 to U. Scrapping their hardest throughout the entire game the Hornets completely outclassed their opponents. The next week the Hornets journeyed to South East Missouri to play Iackson, which was one of the best teams in that section of the state. During the first half of the game both teams scored touchdowns. But in the second half the Hornet steam roller began to move and didn't stop until the final gun sounded. N. K. C. Won by ct 19-to-6 score. A first quarter touchdown was the margin by which the Hornets nosed out the powerful eleven from St. los- eph Benton. The Benton team displayed the finest line play of any team met by N. K. C. this year. Except for the -Hornet tally the game was played between the twenty-yard lines. The Hornets took a week's rest before playing the big game of the year-the Wm. Chrisman game. Even with a week's rest it seemed as though the purple and gold clad boys didn't have the pepper necessary to send Chrisman down in defeat. The Hornet offense couldn't click and the defense was Weak. The Indepen- dence team pushed over three touchdowns and the Hornets managed to score once. For the final game of the season the home team invaded Higginsville. As in the Iackson game, the Hornets got off to a slow start, having possession of the pigskin few times until the second quarter. N. K. C. was able to cross Higginsville's goal line twice, while Higginsville scored only once. Considering the loss of many stars due to graduation last year, the year was a big success with 5 wins and 3 defeats. The boys had a fine year with many memories which they will never forget. 84 gl -K A' 1 R.

Although six of the twenty-two games were lost, the record is still one of which we should all be proud, because these six games were lost to excellent teams. One game was lost to Ioplin, last year's State Cham- pions and another was lost to William Christman. Two games were dropped to St. Ioseph Benton, a team rated among the best in the state. The North Kansas City quintet, crippled by the loss of two regulars because of injuries, was defeated twice more--once by Turner and again by a flashy team from Columbia. ' Of the sixteen games won, the win from William Christ- man outshines all the rest. This was the first time in ten years that the Chrisman Bears have been defeat- ed .in basketball by the Hornets. At the Holt Tournament North Kansas City easily took first place and the following week Walked off with the first place trophy at the Lee's Summit Tournament. ln the last two games of the latter tournament the Hornet quintet came from behind in the fourth quarter to win by a very narrow margin. The Hornets lost their final game to Columbia in the Regional Tournament at Marshall. , , f f..' 5 ff ' M V -W 4 ..", if. , .--- .-V2 ' , - 3 ' ", ,f-yfff " ziff fw ff f fyiff 'f,- ' 'V 74f7fy' WY Vfffii ., , S, N 4 Q. 3, wwyg , ,f, .M Q' xi. .j,, 5: 1 ,Q ,, f My X ,.'v t M. fvsxp .

At the William Iewell Invitational Meet the Hornets did not do so well. The competition was exceptionally strong and the Hornets placed last.
