After her nine years at North Kansas City High School, the death
of Hazel Bggeman came as a great loss to her pupils and fellow
59Miss Eggeman died after several months illness on December 31.
Her quiet, gracious manner contributed greatly to the esteem she
compelled from thou fortunate enough to know her. To her students.
she attempted to impart a thorough knowledge of the two subjects
she taught, Common Learnings and World History.
This pa e can be but a small tribute by the Class of 1960 to
Miss Hazel gggeman. who will long remain a part of Northtown.

peech and Debate
What's this, "The Monster that Devoured
Cleveland"? No, it's just a scene from one
of the many one-act plays and pantomimes
beginning drama students do in Dramatics
classes. This group also presents, as their
annual project, a three act play, doing all
the lighting, staging, making-up, as well as
the acting themselves.
"Now see here!" In Debate classes
they both "see here" and "listen here"
as cases are prepared and practice is
given to actual debating.
"I think we've lost something in the trans-
lation!" This is sometimes a common comment
in French class when songs, skits, or lessons
are acted out. However, this class gives stu-
dents wonderful opportunity to learn the gram-
mar, stories, and culture ot the country, and
proves very popular for sophomores, juniors,
and seniors alike.
"Will the real Pancho Villa sit down!"
Si, Si. History, as well as the vocabulary, cus-
toms, and stories of Spain, Mexico, and South
America are studied in the beginning, second
year, and third year Spanish classes. By doing
this, students are given a much better under-
standing of our neighbors South of the Border.
"Hmm, the instructor's smiling. Must be
a snap course!" 300 Seniors know that this
just isn't so because they have learned the hard
way, by taking this elective course, that this
fourth year of English offers them a thorough
course in both literature and composition, pre-
paratory to college or university work.
"Gee, Cinemascope Sentences!" - Almost.
This concentrating Senior Literature class is
attempting to improve their speed as well as
their comprehension by using the Controlled
Reading Machine. This new machine, in its
first year of use, has proved very beneficial
and has stressed the need for more work in the
for close to 3 minutes while
"So that's how you say 'risque' in Turkish!" Well, perhaps
not, but Mac, our exchange student from Turkey, is learning
some rather difficult words in Iunior English class in their study
of vocabulary words, a pxoject of all English classes at NKCHS.

"These 'angels' know all the angles!" Or try to find them out as they work a problem in
plane geometry at the board.
"Dig this crazy Mrs. Jekyll!" - Perhaps this is no
experiment to change a person's appearance, but
plenty of experimentation does go on in chemistry
class as juniors and seniors take this fundamental
science course at NKCHS. Here a class delves into the
many mysteries of the world about them.
"I never knew an earthworm had tonsils!"
Perhaps students in the biology classes do not make
comments such as this, but certainly this class is
full of surprises as these science enthusiasts also
delve into the world about them, namely the world
of biological science, and find many interesting
facets to amaze them.
"The first thing is to get a date!" That might
well be the first step in this illustrated talk on "The
Dating Ladder," one of the many topics discussed
in Family Life, an elective course which also helps
students understand each other as well as some of
the responsibilities involved in growing up.
"Eyes right for the history lecture!" Students who take such classes as
world history, U. S. History, or international relations learn the importance of
understanding the world and its people, as well as important figures of history,
governmental principles, historical facts. Knowledge such as this helps them
now and will later help them in college or careers.
"Who's playing the 'Stars and Stripes
Cha Cha' back there?" Could probably
be anyone in the band because these
musical students play the gamut as they
must do in order to perform for the Ameri-
can Royal parade, the football and basket-
ball games, as well as their many con-
certs and programs.
"Quick! The bubble ma-
chine!" - No Lawrence Welks
these, but they are good mu-
sicians as they must be to make
the orchestra classes of Mr.
Bogosian. Practice helps make
perfect, as these Hornets find
out, and they are given ample
time throughout the year to pre-
sent concerts and programs to
prove practice does just that.
"The Sound of Music" ema-
nates from the vocal music de-
partment almost every hour as
group after group go through
their vocal paces for Mr. Clouse.
These are the A Cappella stu-
dents: others are the Harmon-
aires, the Girls' Glee Club, the
sophomore choir, and a general
music class. These students
also get a vigorous work-out
during any school year as they
are called upon many, many
times to display their talents
at programs, assemblies, and
concerts in school as well as

That's stretching the point!"
The skills of physical dexterity are
learned and displayed in physical educa-
tion classes for girls as well as those
classes for boys. In each, physical fitness
is emphasized: and major sports, such
as football, basketball, baseball, volley-
ball, and hockey are played. For the
second year, classes were often held at
the NKC Bowl where the students were
taught the fundamentals of bowling.
"Look what vitamin pills do!"
"That's fine. Now paint the other eye
in." Future "Rembrandts" are given
classroom experience in portrait painting
with oils along with many other facets
of art experience in the beginning and
advanced groups enrolled in these classes.
Along with art classes, courses are also
offered in crafts where carving, Swedish
weaving, and leather crafts are included.
"I've heard of fancy cigarette lighters,
but this is ridiculous!" Mr. Cochrane and
the boys in General Metal, one of the
many industrial courses offered, know
what they're doing, and graduates who
have taken such classes find jobs in re-
lated fields or go on into college major-
ing in engineering.

"Good heavens! They've moved
the engine up front again!" Mr. Crou-
thers, one of the Driver Education teach-
ers at NKCHS, ignores the comment
and goes on to explain the parts oi the
engine to students who want to become
safe and competent drivers.
C. 0. E.
C. O. E .... Consistently Organized Employment? No, but you're warm. These are members
of Cooperative Occupational Education, a course whereby students may work part-time in places
of business and also continue their education. Mr. Marvin Thompson instructs those enrolling in this
"Yes, we know you WANT to graduate, but. . . " Probably not a common comment made by
counselors to their counselees, especially in this case in which Mr. Ferguson helps Lou Workman
decide upon a college for next fall. This valuable aid helps students to find their right vocation
or the college they might be best-suited for and is carried out through the trained staff of five
"That will be S42.75 book fine, please!" Well, hardly, but just such a thankless job of asses-
sing fines on books long over-due is one of the many difficult tasks assigned to the library staff
which is under the supervision of Miss Beatrice Shryack. Well-stocked shelves, both fiction, non-
fiction, and reference, offer NKC students a varied and rich reading diet.
"Take a letter, Miss Coffman!" So Marsha
Coffman does just that, by means of the new
dictaphone purchased for the Business Educa-
tion department. This, as well as many other
pieces of modern equipment, aids those girls
who use their skills and knowledge gained in
Secretarial Practice, Bookkeeping, Clerical
Practice, and Office Procedures to find good
jobs in the commercial field.

Hornets Surge To Tie Knights
Rick Lee and Dave Mehner sparked the under-
dog Homets to a 19-19 tie with the Southeast gridders
at Southeast's stadium. Lee scored on the first play
of scrimmage, Wayne Kindel scored on a pass with
just 3 seconds left in the first half, and Mehner
plunged across with 47 seconds left in the game to
end the scoring.
olthtown Routs Benton
The Hornets first home game proved fatal for
the Benton Cardinals while it handed Northtown its
25th Pony Express Conference victory, 39-7. Dave
Mehner led in the scoring attack with three T. D.'s,
with the Hornet line providing excellent blocking by
Gary TenEyck and Ralph Ager.
Barrage Sinks liberty
Northtown's gridders, sparked by senior full-
back Dave Mehner with four T. D.'s and junior
quarterback Don Rea, battered the Liberty Blue Iays
51-6. The Hornets, on their home field, displayed an
impressive ground attack. Excelling defensively
were Gary TenEyck, Iim Hobbs, and Ron Wild who
intercepted three Blue Iay passes.
lancers Nip Hornets
N. K. C. was handed its first defeat of the season
by the Shawnee-Mission East Lancers on S. M.'s
grid field. The slow-starting Hornets came back from
a 14-0 half time deficit to end the game 14-13. De-
fensive standouts were Gerry Marshall, Iohn Krebbs,
and Ron Wild.
Chrisman Easy For .K. C.
The William Chrisman Bears bowed in a 21-0
shutout to the Hornets to put Northtown's gridders
one step closer to its sixth Pony Express Conference
championship. The outstanding play of the even-
ing was tackle Richard Parson's 80 yard "gallop"
to pay-dirt on a blocked field goal attempt.
"Coach" Age: looks on with disgust
Larry McGee stymies the Cadet's
Lee smashes off tackle behind the blocking of Marshall and Parsons.

to be the actions expressed dur-
ing the De LaSalle and N.K.C.

pers around end for a first
and ten against the Ben-
Bulldogs' Bite Proves Fatal
The Wyandotte Bulldogs outlasted the Hornets
on the Bulldogs gridiron to defeat Northtown 12-6.
Dave Mehner and Everette McClain triggered the
only Hornet score, a 72 yard march to paydirt in
the third quarter. Outstanding was Northtown's
goal line stand to kill a Wyandotte T. D. from the
1 yard line.
.K.C. Conquers The Cadets
The Hornets won N. K. C.'s homecoming game
from the De LaSalle Cadets "in a breeze" 36-0.
Everette McClain led in the scoring escapade with
three T. D.'s. lon Krebbs dashed 65 yards to paydirt
in the first quarter, while Dave Mehner and Don
Rea also contributed with T. D.'s.
Hornets Chop p lafayette
The Hornet eleven stomped the Shamrocks of
St. Joseph Lafayette, 38-0 at St. Ioseph. Hornet
scoring was spread among Dave Mehner, Mark
Westrnan, Everette McClain, Rick Lee, Iohn Hays,
and center lim Hobbs who scooped up a blocked
punt and raced 24 yards to the goal line.
Hornets Gallop To Title
N. K. C. won its sixth straight Pony Express
Conference title by defeating the Indians of St. Ioseph
Central 31-6 at Northtown's last home game of the
season. lon Krebbs, Rick Lee, Dave Mehner, and
Everette McClain provided N. K. C. with its T. D.'s
with McClain tallying twice. Guard Gary TenEyck
was the outstanding defensive man of the evening.
P. E. C. Champs Win "Big 0ne"
The Raytown-N. K. C. football game, probably
the hardest fought game of the season was a joyous
13-12 victory for the Hornets. Dave Mehner and Rick
Lee were responsible for the two Hornet tallies,
while Everette McClain booted the P. A. T. to bring
the N. K. C. 7-2-1 season to a close.
This, the 1959 Northtown-Raytown clash, will
long be remembered as a "brutal display of foot-
ball at its best."
