Mr. Fuson was a graduate of the North Kansas City High School, Class of 19235 later he was treasurer ot the school district for twenty- three years. In the words ot Mr. H. W. Schooling, Superintendent, "Probably no one in the community has contributed as much toward the development of the North Kansas City school system as has lVlr. Fuson during his long tenure as treasurer oi the school district." With this page, we, the class ot 1954, pay tribute to lVlr. Fuson, a man known and loved by high school students and faculty alike.

Because of their interest and labor, North Kansas City' High School has been able to rank with the best schools in the state. Members pictured above are: Seated: Arthur Schroeder, W. Lindsey Smith, Vice-President, W. W. Chick, President, and Boy Bentley. Standing: H. Virgil Bower, Secretary, Glen Crain, E. D. Lewis, and Richard Poynter, Treasurer. ADMINISTRATION SUPERINTENDENT S6 Mr. H. W. Schooling, our Superintendent of Schools, is known throughout the state as G ' a leading educator and administrator. His effort and his influence is noticeable in every , f phase of work being carried on in the entire system. Bond issues are carried unanimous- ly, schools are built, tracts of land for further building sites are purchased, budgets are Q carefully weighed and balanced-these are just an few of his many projects which keep the North Kansas City system a model i throughout the country. In his spare time, Mr. Schooling teaches classes during summers 1 on the Missouri University campus. 4 P l ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT f si o I sr bd FORREST GREER Mr. Forrest Greer, the Assistant Superintendent of Schools, has been given the tremendous task of taking charge of the buildlng and maintenance for the entire system. He works with MI the maintenance department very closely, and can very seldom be found in his office, for this important phase of school admin- istration keeps him going from school to school and then back again.

WHALEY The student body is very proud of their princi- pal, Dr. Robert F. Whaley. With his calm, efficient manner, he has taken over the affairs of our school for the past two years and kept them running smoothly. Last summer Dr. Whaley obtained his doctorate of education at the University of Missouri. MRS. MARGARET LORENZEN i , ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL NELSON KERR Mr. Nelson Kerr has had a tremendous respon-- sibility this year in handling enrollment because of the large increase of students. Taking care of changes in schedules and the school's athletic busi- ness manager are just a few of Mr. Kerr's adminis- trative duties. MR S. VIOLA FULLERTON I lllz "Wm1 1 1: Af ,Wh y . Jr l Wm! ?,,,.,---'- AMELIA TCELLER WM ! , , ff IOHN CRAIG THE ATTENDANCE DEPARTMENT The work of the attendance office is a full time fob, morning, noon, night, and every minute in- between. Tardies are checked, as well as absences: files are maintained for every student as long as he is enrolled in school. This task falls upon the shoul- ders of three individuals, Miss Amelia Keller, Dean of Girls, Mr. Iohn Craig, Dean of Boys, and Mrs. Mar- jorie Neer, their very valuable assistant. Too, credit must be given to the student help used throughout the school day. These people collect the slips from the rooms and help with the filing. MRS. MARIORIE NBER HEALTH SUPERVISICN X 1 MRS.

And yet her du- ties around North Kansas City High School, as well as all the other schools in the entire system, are as important a function of daily school life as anything else. She is interested in the health and safety of students and to this interest she is a devoted worker. To help her with this tremendous responsibility she has a group of girl students who act as nurses' aides and take charge of the health room throughout the day. Too, she has organized a Future Nurses' Club which is very active during the school year and is largely responsible for influencing graduating seniors to take up the proud task of caring for others. Mrs. Beigel holds many high local, county, and state offices in various nursing organizations. l .1 f f 1 1' DO I Ame f X f ff ,f f X-:D-f .

They learn of the relationships between countries, the customs of countries, the political leanings, and a great deal about the people themselves. The past is delved into and a con- nection with the present is usually revealed. Students in social studies also learn of psycho- logy, sociology, economics, and citizenship in order to broaden their outlook on life and to prepare themselves to become useful citizens. Too rnuch importance can never be placed on the valuable time spent in these various classes.

You hear the vocal music department with their Christmas assembly, their operetta: the art classes with their finished products of beauty and originality, the band at the pep assemblies and concerts, their performance during football and basketball games: the Span- ish and French classes, the library and its year-round work. All of this makes for an interesting and varied school year. 15 lu- w if-iw 2 f A I I LOIS FANN ARTHUR PF F K GLADYS WILLIAMS E, F.

While the majority of these classes pre- pare the students for the business world, home eco- nomics provides the girls with instruction for home- making. Many students will be able to secure jobs in these fields immediately following their graduation from high school. A knowledge of these skills will be of great value in the future to all students who take these courses in school. his 17 aw Lise?--1.4 4 l .

Therefore, the school offers general mathema- tics, algebra, plane geometry, advanced alge- bra, solid geometry, and trigonometry. Because mathematics is used in nearly every occupation in life from budgeting household expenses to solving involved scientific equations, it is an important phase of education that should not be neglected.

Basket- ball, baseball, track, and football are among the major boys' sports, while hockey, baseball, volleyball and bas- ketball are offered to the girls. Although only two years of physical education are required, many students enjoy tak- ing more.

Qi This is a picture of six wheels. Five of them are Senior class officers, the sixth one is the left rear tire on Philancy Catlin's MG. These chosen few were elected by their classmates to guide them through that last "dangerous" year and to see that each and every one got a genuine diploma. As these five recall their freshman year, they immediately think of their electing Ioyce Cameron and Sue Markwell to the Student Council. To help support Pep Squad they elected Ioyce Borden, Ianice Bowen, Betty Hawker, Nancy Hill, Ann Markwell. Sue Markwell, Iva McGuire, and Phyllis Riley. During their sophomore year they elected Phyllis Peters and Mary Ann Underwood to Pep Squad. For class officers they chose Richard Kurek as president, Robert Murphy as vice-president, Phyllis Riley as secretary, and lean Shultz as treasurer. Edward Ful- ler, Robert Murphy, and Carol Smith voiced their opinions for their classmates as members of Student Council. Along with the third year came the Iunior Play, "Growing Pains" with Betty Hawker, Richard Kurek, Buddy Mosby, and Vivian Lawrence. They were well on their way in school activities when Carol Smith, sENnoRs sf' lean Shultz, Raymonette Rucker, Patty Shupp, Rose- mary Giffen, and Bobbie Stamberger became active in Pep Squad. The class officers were Wesley Pryor. president: Robert Murphy, vice-president: lanice Bowen, secretary, and Bob Williams, treasurer. lim Carney, Wesley Pryor, Norman Capp, Robert Mur- phy, Carol Smith, Richard Kurek, and Nancy Hill were representatives in Student Council. And they held their Iunior-Senior Prom in the field house for the first time. At last they reached the climax .... their Senior year. Phyllis Riley, head cheerleader, Raymonette Rucker, and Phyllis Peters led them in spirited yells. Memory Burgess and Myrna Smith were elected to Pep Squad: Norman Capps, lim Carney, Gary Dar- nell, Nancy Hill, Robert Murphy, Carol Smith, Mary Ann Underwood, and Ierry Yeager became their last spokesmen in Student Council, with Norman holding down the office of student body president very nicely. And at last we get back to the wheels pictured above. In the driver's seat is Gary Darnell who was elected Senior class president. Standing or seated around him are lim Carney, vice-president: Dick loslyn, sergeant-at-arms: Myrna Smith, treasurer: and Prudence Platt, secretary. 1"'tf ' .0 - - .. . . , .. , in . .

W. -A44 --- -'f--'-- '------ '- - LETTERS TO THE EDITORS l Sirs: We are enclosing the following will and testa- ment that you may print it for the betterment of our posterity. We, the Senior Class of 1954, North Kansas City High School, being of hazy minds and uncertain memories do hereby make this our last will and testament. ARTICLE 1 First we divide a portion of our estate evenly among our successors and beloved faculty. To the juniors we leave our highly esteemed position, that of being seniors. To the "sophs" we leave our front hall lockers, locks and all. To the "frosh" we leave the honor of going to those assemblies labeled for tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades only. To the faculty we leave the student parking lot, as they seem desperate for parking space. ARTICLE 2 Second we leave the following miscellaneous items to needing groups. The center section in the auditorium we leave to the juniors who have waited so long for it. The seniors from Avondale leave their political power to all up and coming Avondalians. The records on the juke box we leave to The Society for the Preservation of Ancient Relics. The Buzz Staff leaves the lost Buzz of December 4, 1953 to the 1955 Buzz Staff. If they can find it, more power to them. The Art Guild leaves their wine bottles to Alcoholics Anonymous. I The football boys leave the extra rolls fromwthe Football Banquet to next year's team. tThey're under the table!! The basketball team leaves their trophies so that the class of '54 will long be remembered. They also leave five empty places! Our pictures on the Hornets Nest and dressing room walls we leave for the preservation of history. The senior Pep Squad girls leave their positions on the Hornet football team to the junior girls. Re- member girls-Hit'em hard! The graduating GAA members leave their over- night hikes to anyone who can brave them. The names on the backstage walls we leave to the guy who paints over them this summer. Clt is a crime to destroy things of such historical value, but they say that it must be done!! The underclassmen of the Radio Club "get the antenna" because the seniors do not feel that they can take it with them. The debaters of the senior class leave their talent to the Chrisman debaters. They need it, we don't. The Kan Kan Kiddies leave their pennies. No! they're taking them. The Honey Buns left their sex appeal to next year's crew. The Student Council seniors leave the remains of the Council's Thanksgiving turkey to Mr. Waley. CThe poor man was laughing so hard he couldn't eat at the Student Council's Annual dinner! The Y-teen Cabinet seniors leave their esca- pades at Gray Rock to the future nightwalkers of the organization. ARTICLE 3 Third, we just leave the following. We leave the Prom with aching feet. The girls leave Miss Foster's office with many memories. We all hope to leave our graduation with a signed diploma. Our school spirit we leave to all: may it help to carry the Hornets "up to endless heights, the top of the ladder of fame. The Purgold Staff leaves their deadlines almost dead. Every one of us leaves with memories-mem- ories of fun and laughter, heartache and tears, exams and homework, coke parties and assemblies. We leave knowing that we are a little older and a great deal wiser, and that we have made many friends. We love this ol' school, it's been our home for four wonderful years. We'll always be proud to sing "Here's to Alma Mater, Northtown we're true." The Class of 1954 The foregoing document was in our presence signed and sealed by the said class of 1954, North Kansas City High School, and by them published and declared their last will and testament, and at their request and in their presence, we hereunto subscribe our names as attesting witnesses, at North Kansas City, Missouri on May 10, 1954.

We thought that your readers might be interested in our class prophecy because we have written it believing that your predictions on the progress in this field will come true. Here's hoping that you will see fit to print it. Sincerely, The Class of 1954 North Kansas City High School North Kansas City, Missouri The year is 1974: the place is 23rd and Gentry, North Kansas City, Missouri. We are waiting for the Garzee Rocket Taxi to take us to lunch at the Mars Drive-In. Would you liken to go along? Come on, here he comes. l.T! Wait for Us! Here we are. My goodness! -It just took us four minutes to go from Earth. to Mars. There's the waiter. I'll have a Moose special, please. No, not moose meat, Moose is the cook's name. He wanted to be a rocket taxi driver, but his rocket was disqualified. It didn't have a reverse. So he's spending his time mak- ing sandwiches. Now that lunch is over, let's cruise around a- while. There's the Mars High School. They have a marvelous basketball team. All brothers, Yeah, the Carney Kids. Everyone over six feet tall. And speak- ing of basketball. Did you hear that Ronnie Stevens had to quit the Interplanetary Pro's. His father caught him coming in after 9:30 once too often. There's a newspaper boy hawking the latest edition. What a loud voice! Why, it's lim Kincaid. Let's buy a paper from him. Hmm. Here's a poem by old P.A. Remember her? She always was good at that sort of stuff. "Carney da player .... " Hmmm. That sounds familiar. See this headline. Sharon Brown is running for the Senate. Her platform is "More and better rocket ships for children under five." Wonder how she came out in the music publishing business with those ori- ginal western hillbilly songs aimed at the hillbillies on Iupiter. I'll never forget that one . . . "Come Back Little Iupi, Come Back." Here's a big write-up on the sports page about "lncredible Al". Hmm. He's now a coach for the Venus Vigilantes team over in Little Bend. That's one of those typical small towns on Venus. According to the entertainment section the Kan Kan Kiddies are still dancing at the Mars Theater. Appearing nightly, too. And at the show across the street, The Backwoods Babes appearing in a revival of "Tobacco Road." Not a bad newspaper, this "Spaceman's Buzz." I'd better subscribe to it when I get home. Let's look the place over. That must be Dr. Burke's hospital up there on that hill. She has been in that laboratory for the last ten years trying to per- fect her new vaccine, Intelligence Iuice. If she suc- ceeds, she'll make a fortune from school children alone. . What's that? Oh. it's coming from across the street. lust someone screaming in the dentist's office. "Murderin' Murphy" they call him. He holds the universal record for pulling teeth. Cjne hundred teeth. Sure, other dentists have pulled that many, but never from one patient! There goes a woman chasing a man with a rol- ling pin. Egad. Mem and Wes. Run Wes! Look at all the neon signs. A music school. Look. It says, "Markwells' Modern Music School. Twin pupils accepted only." There's another, "The Willis School of Physical Culture." Gee, Margie did make it through MU. What's that strange looking building over there? "The Capps Home for Aged Stu- dent Council Presidents from Avondale'.' Isn't that nice? They can all be together again. What does that marquee say? Oh, a revival of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" starring Bobbie Stamberger. I saw that on Earth several years ago. Sure a good movie. Hey! That driver almost hit me. Yeah. The one in that new cream-colored rocket 999. Who? Well it was Marjorie Arnold, wasn't it? Guess I'd better watch where I'm walking. Look at those identical space suits on those girls across the street? Are they twins, you suppose? Oh, no. Wait a minute. It's Patty Shupp and Ann Meeder. Well, it's time to return to Earth. It looks as if it might rain. Hey, Rocket Taxi, going our way? 39 .,...,,.4 L.. - A - "Okay, somebody, hand us the crepe paper! Let's get this prom on the road!" This could well be the cry of these four Iunior class officers grouped around the faithful old ladder. Besides the prom, the only other thing these people can think of is that they are going to be seniors next year. As "frosh" they elected eight members to the Varsity Pep Squad. The girls were Io Ann Croley, Sondra Wurzer, Ioan Dunbar, Ioyce Blackburn, Iudy Counts, Patty Raines, Nancy Anderson, and Donna Cundiff. Sondra Wurzer and Wayne Black were chosen to represent their classon Student Council. The following year, as sophomores, the Class of '55 elected Kenny Ienkins to be their class president. Assisting Kenny were Larry Cobb, vice-president, and Marilyn Armstrong, secretary-treasurer. ludy Stone, Nancy Elliott, Mary Ann Malone, Carolyn Hall, Iudy Garzee, and Ann Marie Roberson were elected to Pep Squad. This year Robin Reeves was elected to the helm of his class with Larry Bodenhamer as vice-president, Mary Ann Malone as secretary, and Nancy Elliott as treasurer. Sondra Wurzer and loan Dunbar were varsity cheerleaders: and Margaret Cline, lean Win- go, and Marilyn Armstrong were elected to Pep Squad. Cheryl Elbe, Kenny lenkins, Nancy Ander- son, Bill Mark, Don Ray, and Robin Reeves repre- sented their class on Student Council. ' The junior play, "A Young lVlan's Fancy" pro- vided the funds for the prom which they gave for the seniors this spring.

The cast broke down cots, scampered around in bathing suits, and raised general bedlam before the final curtain fell. On this and the opposite page are various shots of the goings-on before and behind the scenery. N ts. 'I Are you sure you're breathing? 48 Now who made with the make-up?

' 49 The Sophomore class officers are lined up on the stairslto make everyone think they are taller than they actually are. Beginning with the bottom step, ladies first, of course, and going up, we have: Bev- erly Lewis, secretary: Iohn Younghanz, treasurer: Richard Jenkins, vice-president: and Ioe Cooper, president. With only two years behind them, they already have a long list of accomplishments to be proud of. As freshmen they were the first class to establish a pep squad exclusively their own, and the members elected the first freshman cheerleaders. Alta Swait- hes, ludy Yeager, ludy Hayes, Beverly Lewis, Gail 50 1" Wigger, and Marcia Michelson were the six girls chosen to back the team. Ioe Cooper was elected to lead his class as president with Bobby Landis as vice-president and Mildred Schroeder as secretary. This year the class picked fourteen girls to fill that number of vacancies on the Varsity Pep Squad. Those fourteen included: Sherry Williams, Beverly Schroeder, Mildred Schroeder, ludy Hayes, Beverly Lewis, Iudy Ganote, ludy Yeager, Alta Swaithes, Betty Cordell, loyce Hasten, loyce Denny, Gail Wig- ger, Sondra Bodenhamer, and Eleanor McCall.

X t W. wwf STUDENT CCDUNCIL MEMBERS AT WORK AND PLAY Members Elbe, Hill, and Ienkins en- ergetically sweep the halls after a highly successful locker clean-up cam- paign. They are smiling tiendishly. They think that the papers are mostly ungraded American History finals and Senior Literature term papers. They are wrong. The sweeping consists mostly of their own typing assignments. These are the loyal members attend- the annual Thanksgiving dinner. They are smiling. They are happy. Little do they know that the turkey is burning in the oven and that the meal will con- sist of only what is on the table. Plus the ham Robin has hidden under the blanket. Later they will re-enact the landing at Plymouth Rock. if ,......7K "S"-. fi, L 2 A -'sw hw? 1511 ' 1?

VOCAL MUSIC Music plays a very definite part in the lives of all people, but especially in the liv'es of these music students. As members of the A Capella Choir these sing- ers enjoy an hour of practice daily in addition to extra practices before performances. These perform- ances are given at school assemblies for Thanks- giving, Christmas and Easter, and miscellaneous ones are given forthe Chamber of Commerce and other organizations during the year. The Madrigal singers are chosen from the A Capella Choir and are a more select group, some students being interested in professional singing. The Madrigals sing for special occasions. The outstanding "master production" of this group is the annual operetta which involves the en- tire choir as a chorus and the madrigals who are usually given the solo parts. Miss Lida Warrick is director of this and all productions. This year's op- eretta was entitled "The Fortune Teller". i l I P sr A , - A E li . .V 1 E L i . i - i l s I l ,Q l 1 1 i r l 5 l 5 A CAPPELLA 3 P P ROW 1: Sue Markwell, Ann Markwell, Gloria Kilgore.

Two juniors, Kenny lenkins and Norman Amos, strengthened their forces. The Hornets took their first trophy in the NKC Tournament by downing the Chrisman Bears 54-42, and were defeated by the Bears by a 52-50 margin in the finals of the Clin- ton Tourney.
