TO MISS DORIS ARNOLD,
who, loved and respected by both stu-
dents and faculty, gave generously her
help and understanding to the members
of North Kansas City High School, the
staff gratefully dedicates the 1945 OWL.
"So live, that when thy summons comes to join
The innumerable caravan, which moves
To that mysterious realm, where each shall talqe
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night,
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave,
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."
WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT.

for the news, so without further to-do, here goes!
"The other night at the "38" Club I spotted debonair,
man-about town Richard Kester with a blonde. Quite beau-
tiful-both of them. It's too bad that Kester's junior partner
and general flunky, Lazar tPetel Guilvezan couldn't be along

"The main attraction at the "SG" is Barbara Huck and
her Rhythm Sextet. This girl is really going places on
those sparkling feet.
"Sitting at a ring-side table, eying the chorus, was big-
business man, Charlie Fischer. It's always been a wonder
to me how Charlie has made so much money with so little
work. Those three wives didn't help, either.

Ably lied by Tommy McCully, the Iuniors have gone far in asserting their individuality through the last three years. Striv-
ing for scholastic and extra-curricular gain, they have shown themselves to be outstanding.
On the athletic field Billy Bob Overfelt, Tommy McCully, Donald Klein, Dewey Powell, Bob Sutton, and Ray Eubanks have
lettered. "Spring Green," the Class Play, showed Gene Ritter, Dorothy Nelson, and Shirley Belz, as first class actors. Beverly
Miller, escorted by Bob Talbert, held reign as lunicr Play Queen. Without the assistance of the luniors, the Stinger would have
been much slower in coming to life. As sponsors, they treated the Seniors to a "grand and glorious" Prom.
As the Seniors move out, they are glad to give over their exalted places to the Class of '46.

The Cooperative Part-time Training in Diversified Occupations is self-explanatory. The program is based on coopera-
tion between the business man, the school, the student, and his parents. It is part-time, since the trainee is on the job part-
tirne and in school part'-time, lt is a training program and not a work program. Many different occupations are represented in
the class group.

The combined chorus classes presented an
operetta, "Rio Rico," March 22 and 23 in the
high school auditorium.
A story of pirates and pirate gold, the plot
unfolded before colorful scenery, accompanied
by lilting tunes. One of the highlights of the
performance took place when prim Aunt
lulia tClara Iessie Moorel conducted a dancing
class composed of bloody, cut-throat pirates.
Other memorable scenes included those of
Gerald Reinwald and Barbara Clary's love
songs, th clowning' of Warren Harris as
"Tubby," and the wonderful performances of
Alva Benduce and Don Hartman. Last' but
certainly not least was the convincing acting
of the various swarthy tmakeeupi pirates.
The finale was a broadcast with a complete
cast of 250 members of the combined chorus
classes. "Rio Rico" was directed by Miss

Benton: ln this game the Purple and Gcld seemed a little
over-confident. The Hornets were swatted by a ccunt of 22-6.

pass plays. This was the eighth straight win over the rival
lays in the past eight seasons.
William Chrisman: The Blue and Gold of Chrisman hand-
ed the Hornets their second defeat of the season in the an-
nual l-lome-Coming Game, with a score of 14-l2. Earlene

defeats. The lndians of Central were caught in a steam roller
and crushed on the Hcrnets' home field 3226.
Rockhurst: The Hawklets received a feather plucking' that
all Hornet fans will remember. This victory ranked N.K.C.
with the leading teams of Greater Kansas City.
Lafayette: The lrish men traveled to Hornet Territory only
to be turned back by a score of 32-6.
De La Salle: ln this game the Frenchmen pulled every
trick they knew out of the bag. The Cadets were trounced

Qasketball fettermen, -:Season 1944-45
The Hornets' basketball team this year ranks among the
finest ever turned out from North Kansas City. The quintet
clialked up 22 wins out of 27 starts and also took first
place in the Excelsior Springs tournament. They again
came through at the close of the season to rank first in
the Sub-regional tournament held at De La Salle. Ten
rangy, hard-scrapping boys lettered in the cage season for
the Purple and Gold this year. Among the ten lettermen
there were four seniors, four juniors, and two sophcmores.
Ed Wright, starting Center for the Hcrnets, received his
first letter as a basketball player this year. Wright is
6'25" and weighs 150 pounds. "Slim," as he is sometimes
called, received honorable mention in the Sub-regional
Stepping into a senior's place at center, Eddie Simmons,
a sophomore, won his letter and ticket to the "N" Club
this season. "Pink" is 6'l5" tall, weighs 190 pounds, and
has flaming red hair. Simmons is a good all-around hustler
and a lot is expected of him in his future years for North-
Iim Bishop proved to be one of the outstanding perform-
ers playing on the home court. "Bish's" long shots
from the center of the floor will long be remembered by
Hornet fans. Iim is 5'9" tall and weighs 160 pounds. He is
a two-year letterman. Coach French's 'only regret is that
Bishop is a senior.
Iunior Canady, an up and coming junior, earned his first
letter this year in a guard's position. He started a number
of games and is recognized as the sixth player on the
Hornet Squad. Canady is 5'9" tall and weighs 150 pounds.
Don Lewis. forward for the Purple and Gold, receives
his second-year letter as a cager. Don was one of the out-
standing defensive men in the Kansas City Circuit. Lewis
was a hard scrapper and played an all-around good game.
Lewis is a senior nd is 5'l0" inches tall.
Elmer Rosenbaugh, a tall rangy lad from the sophomore
class, takes his first letter in full stride as a Forward.
"Double Slim" weighs 130 pounds and is 6'3" tall. He is a
dead eye shot and a real rebound man. A lot is expected
of him in his next 3 years at N. K. C.
Roy "Brains" Bender, a senior letterrnan for Northtown,
received his second letter this season. Bender made an all-
star guards position on the team picked for all-stars in the
Sub-regional tournament. Despite being a short 5'9" lad,
Bender was high-point man for the Purple and Gold. His
fancy overhead shots will be missed and will probably
never be duplicated. All in all, Bender will leave a hole
hard to fill in the line up for next year.
Tom McCully, another junior who earned his first letter,
played a guard position for Northtown and received full re-
cognition as a cager for next year. Tom is 5'l0" tall and
weighs 145 lbs.
Lee Allan 'Goodpasture also made his way into the "N"
Club via the first year letter route. Goodpasture is a junior
and a probable starter on next year's line-up. "Blondie"
is a good defensive man, and he hits the hoop regularly as
a clock. He is 6' tall and weighs 160 pounds.
Bill Bob Overfelt, the pride and joy of the Iunior Class,
is a two year letter-man and is an up and coming player.
Bill was out a great deal of the season, but what time he
was in, he set a hard pace for any team to follow. "Ovey"
is 5'9" and weighs 150 pounds.

The Physical fitness classes oi '44 and '45 consist of eighty senior boys, who, under the supervision of Coach French, wilt
be in perfect condition for some branch of the armed forces. Throughout the year the fellows have taken active parts in school
sports, Calisthenics, track, and boxing.
"Physical Fitness" is one of the new courses offered by N. K. C. H. S. It is a requirement' for every able-bodied senior boy
to take this preparatory training. A test is given at the end of each quarter so that every boy can see his own progress. The
test given is exactly like the one given at the Naval Training School tor boot camp.
