LIFE Nloqoziiie reflects the world: it brings you in Contact with people
ond plctces ond hcrppeninqs. With the permission of the Editors ot LIFE, we
hctve chosen it os our theme. PURGOLD LIFE reflects the world of the Hornets,

The death of Mr. Albert B. Fuson, Gctober 6, 1953, left an emptiness in
the hearts ot us all. 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-
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.

BOARD CDF EDUCATICN
The members ol the North Kansas City Board of Education have solved
successfully many of the problems of our school with its ever-increasing
enrollment. 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,
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.
ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT f
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

PRINCIPAL ROBERT F. 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
Last summer Dr. Whaley obtained his doctorate
of education at the University of Missouri.
MRS. MARGARET LORENZEN
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-

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. Emily Beigel's work is usually forgotten
when bouquets are passed around. 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

In social studies students become familiar
with other countries as well as their own United
States. 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.

The efforts of the fine arts classes are
noticeable throughout the school year, this
past year, or any year. 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.

Those classes included in the Practical Art cate-
gory are typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, junior busi-
ness training, secretarial practice, shop, and home
economics. 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.

Although only one year of mathematics is
required to graduate from high school, many
students prefer to take more than the minimum.
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

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

"Growing Pains" with Betty Hawker, Richard Kurek,
Buddy Mosby, and Vivian Lawrence. They were well

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

elected Senior class president. Standing or seated
around him are lim Carney, vice-president: Dick

LETTERS TO THE EDITORS l
We are enclosing the following will and testa-
ment that you may print it for the betterment of our
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
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.
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 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
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
Third, we just leave the following.
We leave the Prom with aching feet.
The girls leave Miss Foster's office with many
We all hope to leave our graduation with a
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
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."

We enjoyed your recent article on interplanetary
travel very much. 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.
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-
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
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
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?

"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.

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.

'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.

Broadway comedy, "A Young Man's
Fancy" to a large and appreciative
audience. 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
Are you sure you're breathing?

hes, ludy Yeager, ludy Hayes, Beverly Lewis, Gail
Wigger, and Marcia Michelson were the six girls
chosen to back the team.

that number of vacancies on the Varsity Pep Squad.
Those fourteen included: Sherry Williams, Beverly

This is not a meeting in a phone
booth, but it easily could be. These
are the three Freshman class offi-
cers: Marshall Sherlock, secretary-
treasurer: Conrad Schroeder, pres-
ident: and Carroll Cheek, vice-
president. No doubt the class is
loaded with girls, ,since all the
officers are males, sd hurry up and
make that phonevtltl-pll, boys!

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.

Music plays a very definite part in the lives of
all people, but especially in the liv'es of these music
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".

AND THE FOOTBALL MANAGERS WHO WERE BUSILY ENGAGED IN
DECORATING THE GOALPOSTS FOR HOMECOMING ......
Harold Cordell, Leonard Grabowski, Bob Berkebile, and Dick
Brand. The fellow on the fifth step of the ladder was a foot-
ball player, helping out just for the exercise.

The basketball team had one of the best
seasons in Hornet history. The team started
the season with four returning lettermen,
Norman Capps, lim Carney, Albert Dunbar,
and Ronnie Stevens. A newcomer to NKC.
Norman Francis, completed the starting five.
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. The Pony Express Champion-
ship was theirs with a conference record of
9 Wins and 1 defeat, the latter a heart-break-
ing loss to Wentworth.
