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 Missouri River. 4 T445 Samoa cwtssfia fx-e fl NOKT-H KANSAS CITY -HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTS T-I-IE PURGULD rj ,f- ff ZLL Of Cznfenb Administration Page Classes Page Clubs Page Sports Page Music Page Social Life Page Advertisments Page MEMORIAM In memory of Glen Franklin Hill. class of '56, who died ot polio, on October 12. 1952. .371 Vx? 1 X e fafi' I' x lf 1 ri fff -P , 'puffy-5'? 4225 ' " :fb l iffgfiflfix ' f .is-f ' ' If! ffxg .-:A"""T'2Ldd XXA L 4'-'G-:gulf ' -X ' - H , s 1 J Y W f VAN 4 H ft gflff.

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 . . .

These small, individual streams unite to create a mag- nificent river. 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. f - 1 v , W , , l illi l 'X UV ,ly W 'lf 5 W f I ' tv lv "I 4 W ,GFX nt X fi 7 x, ,9 X 'tl f 'Q fl .,, 4 , ,ttf f if N XX Niall.

O! gyulcafion To the Board of Education we look for the solution of the many problems of the rapidly expanding high school. lt has been through their help and guid- ance that North Kansas City High School ranks with the best in the state in its very high standards and excellent teachers. Members pictured above are: Merrill Burnidge: Virgil Bower, secre- tary: Albert B. Fuson, treasurer: and E. D. Lewis. Seated are W. W. Chick, president: Glen E. Crain: W. Lindsey Smith, vice-president: and Arthur Schroeder. H. W. SCHOOLING FORREST GREEK Superintendent ol Schools Assistant Superintendent of Schools 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- trict. For the first time we have an Assistant Superintendent ol Schools, Mr. Forrest Greer. Mr. Greer, who holds a Master oi Arts degree, and has been Dean of Boys, assists Mr. Schooling in the enormous task of administering the North Kansas City school district program. y m71fLcL7ooz r 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 School. Mrs. Viola Fullerton and Mrs. Margaret Lorenzen Secretaries to the Principal Adidfanf Qfzfncrpa 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.

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.

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. Art PORTER PRICE Art 5 .

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.

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.

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- ZZ 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.

First we would like to leave the center section of the auditorium to the deserving luniors. We waited three long hard years for the honor of using those wonderful seats, and it was worth every year. Kenny Bell is leaving his flashbulbs, cameras, numerous excuses, and the dark room to his little brother, Freddy, Will the prices go down? ? The cheerleaders will their aching backs. sprained ankles, and sore throats to next year's lucky five. loe Stevens leaves seriously. The clever and ingenuous members of the Buzz staff will their worn-out editorials, coke parties, and unmet deadlines to next year's staff. Cornelia Watkins and Iudy Parkinson leave their crowns to the Homecoming and Purgold Queens of '54. Rosalee Gibbens and Paul Walker leave hand- in-hand. Charles Town leaves . .. no, he decided to take everything with him he can. Sharon Denny wills her quiet ways to Sharon Brown. Mike McCall leaves the Student Council presi- dency to anyone Avondale chooses to run. The cast of the Senior Play lovingly will Miss Fulton to next year's stars. The psychology students are fairly certain Miss McConnell will remember their clever remarks. Alvin Fuson leaves his versatility to lim Carney. Yvonne Winkler wills her ability to accomplish things to Betty Hawker. Shirley Bowles wills her sweet personality to Nancy Hill. Charlotte lohnson wills her twirling ability to Rose Ann Akin. Carol Iustus leaves her pep and enthusiasm to Phyllis Riley. Nancy Leonard leaves with stars in her eyes for the future. Beverly Mosby wills her musical ability to the alto section of A Cappella Choir. Iimmy Reed is leaving his muscles to the "Masked Marvel". He didn't think the Marvel was quite up to par. Larry Sharitz is none too happy about leaving Betty. Ted Shaw wills his ability to make those last minute baskets to anyone on the team. Let's hope they don't need them though. Mary Alexander leaves the Y-Teen presidency to any deserving girl not afraid of hard work. Sam Buterbaugh wills his athletic ability to Norman Capps. Io Ann Duffey leaves those dance steps of hers to Ianice Bowen. Ruth Foster leaves gladly. The boys on the basketball team leave their new shirts looking not-quite-so-new. The G.A.A. members leave "Davy lones" chuck full. Gary Crockett refuses to will Ioyce Blackburn to anyone. Ierry Creason Wills his "Casanova talents" to Ierry Elliott. Shirley Stockwell wills her ability with a pencil to Laura Dykes. Margie Kephart leaves her line of chatter to Bobby Stamberger. 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.

The injury riddled Hornets who started the season with six returning lettermen played their best games away from home. Northtown registered a 14-12 upset over the powerful loplin eleven from southwest Missouri in one of the season's highlights. Line Coach Francis Galbraith was added to the coaching staff to assist Coach Cooper this year. apjdn iooflaf 1952 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE ,,, ,, COACH CLYDE COOPER Coach Galbraith came to NKC from Redemptorist and was a great help in drilling the linemen with the fundamentals. In eight years as head coach at Northtown. Coach Clyde Cooper has compiled a record of 46 wins, 25 losses, and 5 ties. Sportsmanship and fair play are top features of Cooper-coached squads while you can see by the record that they usually win their share of the games. 5g....1 101 ,Y E ,-:ia I rmnfg L ii K. Q I?

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 61 defeats.

Coach Clyde Cooper who is joined by Coach Art Pfaff expects Tom Schaeffer, Wes Pryor, Don Ray, Norman Amos, Arthur Kennedy, Charles Logan, and V06 Charles Hensley to help the three veterans carry the load. Last year the team placed third in the Pony Express Conference Meet. This year the track crew has scheduled the Central Indoor, State Indoor, Wrn.

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 the setting. The "darkies" could forget their hurt and sorrow, passions and torment. by express- ing them in song. LLISZC 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 wheel thrashes rhythmically astern. 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.

HUDSON See and Drive the Fabulous HUDSON for '53 Sales G Service HOOPER HUDSON COMPANY 1925 Swift Avenue North Kansas City, Mo. enlior Cfowd - Mojo ecg 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 famous "Buzz." 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- cedure! .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" today. 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 t 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- tainly grown. 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: Let's go!" 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 That popcorn Peggy Foerster and lanet Elliott 14 150 :hh-JK 1925 PERSHING ROAD ' aummG10N , ."'.'TGlEl I I I I are selling sure looks good, but let's buy a candy apple from Margie Kephart, instead. On second thought, it would be hard to cope with a circus of this kind. Maybe it would be better to take a nice quiet stroll through the halls of our old peaceful alma mater. My, the walls have been changed again. 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- coach. Northtown has a new class devoted entirely in -Sw 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 it's been swell seeing so many of our old classmates again. Many of them have gained fame and fortune, and all are realizing their own private goals. Yes, we can honestly say, "We're proud to be graduates of '53." -,ld ,if I WA LSWO RTH I un.sg..,i..4 at sauna by wnlswonru anofmsns u.m.i.... no U s A jr 3 , Jw? My xfwo' Q07Zf?CiW" www?
