Over a century ago, a few courageous people moved westward in search
of a new land and a new life. Wearily, they traveled over treacherous miles
to reach their destination-a wide and magnificent river: sometimes lazy and
gentle, sometimes fierce and destructive, with high steep bluffs and low green
banks-the mighty Missouri.
These farsighted people stood in the wilderness surrounding the waters
and dreamed of the future. They saw huge boats busily loading and unloading
cargo: they saw their children gaily playing along the peaceful banks: they saw
gleaming buildings and beautiful parks: and they saw, eventually, a magnifi-
cent city emerge from the wilderness along the life-giving waters of the wide

MISS AMELIA KELLER
Perhaps no one person has had a greater influence on as large a number
of high school students as our Dean of Girls.
Beloved favorite when only 30 students made up the entire high school,
she has watched the enrollment grow to 1500.
Having served our school in the positions of principal, Dean of Girls,
teacher, counselor, and sponsor of many extra-curricular activities . . . the
Senior Class appreciatively and lovingly dedicates this 1953 Purgold to . . .
Miss Amelia Keller.

It is in much the same manner that the administration of the school is
formed. Each individual member of the faculty and administration contribute
their share of knowledge, understanding, skill, and the many similar traits for
which they are known. Working together for the benefit of the school, they have
formed the foundation on which our school securely rests.

To help the Board ot Education administer
their program, they have chosen Mr. H.
W. Schooling as Superintendent of Schools.
That they have chosen wisely is shown
by the outstanding work Mr. Schooling is
doing. He is responsible not only for the
program at our high school but also tor
the entire North Kansas City school dis-
For the first time we have an Assistant
Superintendent ol Schools, Mr. Forrest

Our principal this year, Mr. Robert Whaley, has quickly
won the friendship and co-operation of the entire student body
through his genuine interest in each and every one of us.
Although this is his first year at North Kansas City, he
has become a very definite part of our school.
Mr. Whaley came from lennings High School in Saint
Louis County where he was principal of Iunior and Senior High
Mrs. Viola Fullerton and Mrs. Margaret Lorenzen
Secretaries to the Principal
Vtdith a school as large and rapidly growing as NKCHS.
there are more jobs than can be efficiently handled by one man.
Therefore part of the administrative duties have been assigned
to Mr. Nelson Kerr, the assistant principal. Mr. Kerr assists with
enrollment, changes ofischedulesfand is the school's rumen-
business manager. ' l
ROBERT F. WHALEY
Helping Mr. Whaley in two important
administrative assistant positions of our high
school are Miss Amelia Keller, Dean of Girls,
and Mr. Iohn Craig, who is being trained by
Mr. Greer, to take over the duties of Dean of
Boys. The two are pictured at the left.
It is their job to check carefully the atten-
dance records ot all the students in school. In
addition to these duties, Miss Keller teaches
geometry and Mr. Craig, physics.

Our fine arts classes add much to the school.
Who wouldn't be proud of our bands, the orch-
estra, and a cappella choir? The art classes, in
addition to making posters for important events,
work on the scenery for the plays and the de-
corations for the Prom. We also have the Ro-
mance language classes in the fine arts division.
Two years of Spanish are offered, and this year,
we have two classes of French.

Three years of English are required in order to graduate
from high school. These requirements are not established with-
out reason. A knowledge of proper English is essential to any-
one. The English classes not only teach us proper English, but
also help us to know and understand the great literature. They
are an important part of our school.

The social studies classes include U. S. history, world
history, citizenship, international relations, and psychology
classes. To study psychology is to study the human rnind.
International relations is the study of relationships between
different countries and how they .may' be improved. A class in
citizenship teaches just what a citizen's privileges and duties
really are. Of course the history classes teach us of the history
of our country and of other countries. '

The practical arts classes are the classes, such as typing,
shorthand, bookkeeping, etc., which prepare us for our part in
the business world. Also included in this division are the home
economics classes, and the shop classes. These classes play an
equally important part in preparing us for the time when we are
no longer in school. A knowledge of any of the skills taught in
these classes is an asset.

The physical education classes help
us to gain skill in sports, such as basketball.
These classes help both boys and girls learn
the rules of such sports. They teach us good
sportsmanship, which is more important than
skill. Besides learning about sports, we learn
how best to use our muscles and how to exer-
cise. These classes are extremely interesting to
most students, many ol whom never before have
had a chance to play any sport and probably
will never again have such a chance.

T'eQS"'e' HISTORY or THE SENIOR CLASS Sefqefml-G'-arms
The great day iinally arrived! After three years
of waiting, we became Seniors, the most important
people in school. Looking back over the years we
have been in high school, we have these memories.
Our Freshman year we elected Shirley Christgen,
Patsy Cooley, Beverly Mosby, Cornelia Watkins,
and Carol Justus to the Pep Squad. Cornelia Watkins,
Don Wolverton, and Alvin Fuson helped the Student
Council make those important decisions.
Donna Little, Linda Colt, Peggy Foerster, and
lo Ann Duffey were elected to the Pep Squad during
our Sophomore year. Galen Hemmerling, Mike Mc-
Call, Kenton Schwarz, Alvin Fuson, Sam Buterbauqh,
and Paul Walker represented us in football.
Don Greenwood was the President of our Iunior
class, with Paul Walker serving as Vice-President,
Nancy Leonard as Secretary, and Ted Shaw as
Treasurer. Yvonne Winkler, Donna Little, Cornelia
Watkins, Mike McCall, Alvin Fuson, and Ierry Crea-
son were members of the Advisory Committee. We
put on the play "Mother Is a Freshman" to finance
our prom with its Moonlight and Roses theme.
' Our Senior year? We want you to meet the class
of 1953. A

quite up to par.

they don't need them though.

to any deserving girl not afraid of hard work.

Io Ann Duffey leaves those dance steps of hers
to Ianice Bowen.

Shirley Stockwell wills her ability with a pencil
to Laura Dykes.

Our favorite niches for bidding class-bound
steadies good-bye, we leave to the lovelorn under-
classmen. May your light bulbs always be out!
To all of you we leave in trust our sincere thanks
for the dreams fulfilled, the hearts broken, the good
times, the hectic times, and all the wonderful four
years we've spent at North Kansas City High.
This twenty-sixth day of May, 1953, we do hereby
under witness sign, seal, and deliver this our last
will and testament.

zation has students entering this club as apprentices
cmd progressing to journeymen. An "S" average in
art is required for membership. The highest degree
of excellence is the master, which entitles the art stu-
dent to membership in the National Art Honor
Some of the activities include sketch trips, visits
to the Art Gallery, and exhibits. Every student an-
ticipates the arrival of the Regional Scholastic Art
Awards each year, and this year NKC was well rep-
resented in the show. Five gold keys were awarded
to Shirley Stockwell, and her portfolio went on to the
National Competition. Helen Shawver received two
Certificates of Merit: Dick Clay. Eugene Caples, and
Kay -Kindred each received one.

it neared its destination. Victory over the rushing river waters!

teaching the students new yells and backing up our teams they devote much of their spare time to other activities:
such as helping with charity drives and making arrangements for the football and basketball banquets.

Under the leadership ot Mr. Clark F er-
QUSOD. the year's small but mighty Hornets
constantly fooled their opposition. Coach
Ferguson changed defenses in surprise
moves to throw off favored opponents.
Northtown's PEC hopes suffered a blow
when their tall leading scorer, Harold
Henry, moved to Hamilton, Missouri. But
the Hornets won first place in the William
Iewell Tournament and the Clinton Tourney
and took consolation honors at their own
NKC Tournament. They finished fourth in
the NKC State Regional.
During his seven years as head basket-
ball coach at NKC, Coach Ferguson's teams
have compiled 158 victories against only

The darting tongues of the great bonfire cast
eerie shadows across the weary faces of the
small group. Except for the sound oi the watel
close by. the atmosphere was hushed, as if wait-
ing and expectant.
Then the slow, mournful rhythms broke over

ing them in song.
Excitement is in the air as the showboat comes gliding down the river.
The performers are singing and chattering gaily on the deck, and the big water

lust as the calliope of the showboat drew crowds of people and put the
feeling of thrill and good times in the air, our band, marching down the field,
puts enthusiasm in the hearts of the fans.
Our marching band, under the direction of Mr. Donald Neuhart, has
been an outstanding attraction during the football seasons, entertaining the
spectators during the game and between halves. Besides participating in
sports, the band was a part of the gala American Royal Parade.
The Concert Band is made up of the better players of the marching band.
Besides participating in several assemblies, they have an annual spring con-
cert. This year they have made plans to go on a concert tour of several schools,
and hope to make it an annual affair.

At last we are on our wav to visit the old home
town, NKC. Wonder if things have changed much
in ten vears? We haven't seen some of the old gang
since graduation in 1953.
We're having a grand cruise up the beautiful
Missouri River. Since the great genius, Professor
Bob Bowers, perfected the formula of "Wonderful
Waters, Inc.", the Mighty Mo has been known as the
Miracle Mo. No one knows what the formula is,
but the professor has given exclusive rights to it
to the Missouri legislature.
"Boy! Oh, boy, will you bring me a paper
please? Why, if it isn't Ierry Creason! How is
everything, Ierry? . . . Not Really! You're working
on your second million now? . . . Yes, saving your
pennies and being a good boy does pay off . . .
You don't have change for a dime? Well, just keep
it: no one can say I don't help my friends."
Why, this is a copy of the famous newspaper
the "Drippy Dribblings," edited by Mary Alexander.
Mary gives all the credit for being able to dig up a
scoop to Miss Mildred Fulton and the now equally
Hummm . . . Yvonne Winkler is expected to
walk away with the president ioops, presidency?
next year. Norene Landis is running as vice-presi-
dent. Norene is in charge of kissing senators and
all reasonable facsimile. Strictly campaign pro-
.Speaking of politics, we hear that Shirley
Stockwell is completely redecorating the walls of
the White House with her murals: but whoever
heard of having blue horses in the "blue room,"
green horses in the "green room," and rose horses
in the "rose room?"
Let's take a look at the stock exchange. The
"Fuson and Father Insurance Company" is doing
so well that "Lloyds of London" have been forced
out of business. "Clay's Clanky Cars" are selling
for the same price as "General Motors" and "Ford"
On the society page we notice that Cornelia
Watkins was elected Homecoming Queen from the
combined universities of the entire country. Cornelia
asserted that it was much more of a thrill when she
wore the crown for Northtown.
Carol Iustus was recently named Miss Amer-
ica, Nancy Leonard was a very close runner-up.
Tough luck, Nancy: Carol just had more seniority.
The Business Men of America chose Linda
Colt as the "Secretary I'd Most Like to Hold on My
Knee." Linda was disqualified, however, when it
was discovered she couldn't type.
The boat is about to dock: the people are gath-
ering around therail. Why, there is Patsy Cooley,
the world famous prima donna. She's been touring
Europe with her own troup of dancers. Ierry Naylor
and his symphony C?J orchestra have been traveling
with the group playing original compositions. All
the critics agree it is very unusual entertainment.
That can't be Kenny Bell setting up his cam-
eras! But it is! He must be going to take some pub-
licity shots of Pat. Kenny has an exclusive photo-
graph studio catering only to babies from 16 to 25
years of age. He's quite famous now, you know.
Off the boat and in Northtown at last. Sure
is good to be home again. My, the town has cer-
There is that luxurious night-club, Mike's Mel-
low Mickeys. Ravishing Ruthie Foster is currently
starring on the bill. Ruth has caused a sensation
in the entertainment world with her combination of
torch singing and adagio. Unfortunately, she isn't
allowed on T. V. any more. Her first appearance
burned out all the tubes on the sets.
That big building must be the new store of
Genial Ioe Stevens. No, he doesn't buy or sell any-
thing: just gives it away.
Say, isn't that Paul and Rosie? They certain-
ly seem to be in a htirry. "How's the Walker fam-
ily these days? . . . You're taking the kiddies to the
circus? . . .Oh boy, I haven't seen a circus in years:
There's the big tent up ahead. The billboards
say two sensational acts have been imported from
abroad. Oh, no! The Kan Kan Kiddies from Paris
and the Honey-Buns from Hawaii! They're still fight-
ing over who has top billing.
Beverly Mosby, Shirley Christgen, Donna Lit-
t1e,and Shirley Bowles have a unique high wire act.
They perform 60 feet in the air with no net under
them. The entire crew of men with the circus simply
stand and catch them. Three of the girls have al-
ready become engaged.
Who's making all that racket? Oh. it's only
the circus barker, Kay Kindred. Iudy Parkinson is
selling the tickets to the people while Iudy Richards
collects them at the tent door. fThe tickets, that is.l

Such a soft lovely shade of fuchsia!
"Hello, Principal Buterbaugh. How are you and
the faculty making out? Vice-principal Goebel is
having trouble with the women teachers? Yes, it
would be bad to be so irresistible."
Say, can that be? No, not Bill! Bill Iackson
behind the desk marked "Truant Officer."
Let's go down to the gym and see how the
Hornets are making out. Bill and Bob Stevens are the
two football coaches. They take turns being head-
Northtown has a new class devoted entirely
to muscle building. The instructor, Gary Norton,
recently won the title of Mr. America.
The Hornet cagers have won the P.E.C. trophy
for so many years now that all the other teams have
dropped out of the conference. It seems Ted Shaw,
basketball coach, will accept no players under 6 feet
5 inches tall.
"Hi, Greenwood, say, those are nifty shorts
you're wearing . . . Oh, they're for your gym class?
. . . So you're the new girls phys. ed. teacher?"
Say, isn't that George Bickley? "Don't tell me
you're a teacher here too . . . Oh, you're still just
trying to graduate."
Well, we had better be on our way now. But
