The 1982-83 PURGOLD staff had several
theme ideas, but could not decide on a specific
one. In October we decided we needed a new
idea, one the whole staff could agree on. During
the PURGOLD assembly, Kelly Duffendack was
announced as the winner of our contest to pick
a theme and received a free yearbook as a prize.
Kelly's theme, "Here's Looking at You, Kid",
developed into the idea of using the eyes of
students and faculty as a continuous element in the
"Here's Looking at You, Kid", is a line from
the movie, "Casablanca", starring Humphrey
Bogart. As a reward to PURGOLD purchasers, the
yearbook staff presented, "Play It Again, Sam", a
Woody Allen movie, also based on a Bogart

The 1983 PURGOLD staff, on behalf of the entire
school, dedicates this year's Purgold to Mr. Don Cobb,
mathematics teacher and resigning head football coach.
Mr. Cobb has coached for 22 years, ln his nine years
as head football coach at North Kansas City, he has won 40
games, lost 47, and has had three ties. In his entire coaching
career, spent at Marshall High School, Kansas City Southwest
High School, Kansas City Northeast High School, and North
Kansas City High School, Mr. Cobb has achieved a 100-77-6
ln 1982, Coach Cobb led the Hornets to a Conference
Championship, and to complete the season, he was selected
the Suburban Blue Division Coach of the Year.
Mr. Cobb and his wife, Barbara, have two sons, David
and Don, both N.K.C. graduates. Mr. Cobb plans to continue
teaching at North Kansas City.
We thank Coach Cobb for his contributions to both the
athletic and scholastic fields at Northtown, and we are happy
to dedicate this 1982-83 PURGOLD to him.

More than a job l
at Alma ater
Mr. Bob Hiatt took over the position of assistant principal in
charge of discipline and attendance after Mr. Francis Galbraith
retired last year. When asked why he decided to take the job,
Mr. Hiatt replied that he wanted the challenge that being an
administrator represented. He also had the inspiration to be an
administrator after he began teaching. He had another important
reason to take this position, because Mr. Hiatt graduated from
Northtown in 1969.
Mr. Hiatt believes that everyone should have a chance to
prove themselves. Communication and being accountable for
one's actions are just part of Mr. Hiatt's philosophy. "I feel that
everyone has a good side to them rather than just a bad side."

Most people know Mrs. jean Anderson as
one of the teachers in the English Department,
but few people know of her as a competition
for Russell Stover.
Mrs. Anderson became interested in the
candy-making business when she went to a
neighbor's party. The first step in starting the
business involved selling candy molds herself.
She then could obtain candy molds for her
own use. After this, advertising was the next
step. She solicited her products around the
neighborhood and at school, and soon her
When asked why she chose the candy-
making business, Mrs. Anderson replied that,
"It's good therapy because you can mold
chocolate better than you can children."
Above left: One of Mrs. Anderson's
specialties are houses made of
chocolate. These houses were made
for Halloween and Christmas.
Center left: The clhess set made of
milk chocolate and white chocolate,
is just another novelty made by Mrs.
Center right: These little figurines are
made from white chocolate, milk
chocolate, and carob chocolate.
These could be given on any occa-
sion, such as graduation, Mother's
Day, and on Valentines's Day.

The entire south wing of the Norclay Elementary
School building was opened to Northtown as a
substitute for Dagg, which was closed at the end of
the last school year. The main objective for the move
was to allow for the classes that were moved out of
the main building, and to try to eliminate some of
the over-crowding problem.
According to the majority of teachers in the
Business department here at Northtown, Norclay is
one of NKCHS's biggest assets. "lt tprovidedj the
needed space to offer the classes that Northtown
students want," stated Mrs. Linda Gross. It also
provided the much needed electrical outlets that
permitted the use of all the business equipment,
such as the typewriters, calculators, and computer
However, there is one major problem for
students with classes located at Norclay. The time
that it takes to get from Norclay to the main building,
or vice-versa, is more than the alotted time between
periods. This meant either a longer time span was
needed between classes which did not occur or that
students traveling to or from Norclay would have to
The weather was another problem faced by
many students. When winter came, with its freezing
temperatures and blowing snow, Norclay was just
another obstacle to overcome.

Mr. Eugene'Cole, a math instructor at North Kansas
City High School since 1966, has taught math for a total
of twenty-five years. When asked why he has taught
math for so many years, he replied that he liked working
with the students and that he thought of math as an
interesting subject." This year, he taught trigonometry,
math analysis, calculus, and basic math.
The requirements for being a math teacher are so
many hours of educational background, depending on
the level a person plans to work with, and one has to
have a major in mathematics. Mr. Cole also thinks that
any teacher, "Needs to have a desire to meet the needs
of other people." They also have to have a certain
amount of tolerance for the students' behavior.
Mr. Cole graduated from high school at Saint john's
Seminary in 1946. He went on to Rockhurst College,
where he did his undergraduate work, until 1950, Then
he went to Central Missouri State University,
Warrensburg, and majored in education in 1957. He then
obtained his Master's Degree in math at Notre Dame,
in 1962. He served in the Air Force for five years as a
meteorologist. In 1954, after the signing of the Korean
cease fire, Mr. Cole went over there, but did not
participate in actual combat.
When asked what he would be doing if he weren't
teaching, Mr. Cole said that, with his educational
background in mathematics, he would probably be an
engineer or work in the science field.

Taking a foreign language in high school may be to a student's
advantage. According to a recent survey, ever 700!0 of the businesses
responding said they would like to hire people with some knowledge
concerning a foreign language. Many prominent fast-food restaurants,
such as Pizza Hut and McDonalds have businesses in Germany.
Corporations like I.B.M. have a need for people who have some type
of foreign language skills.
Other jobs, such as teaching, translators for the United Nations,
and other subsidiary liason employees, require a foreign language.
Also, the government employs many people for the United States
embassies located in Austria, Switzerland, and France. These are very
high paying jobs, and have the added bonus of travelling to other
countries, such as Germany, Spain, or Paris.
Extensive language training, however, is required for high-level
translators. There are special translating schools for this purpose.
Otherwise, further study in college is usually necessary to attain a
proficiency in any language, although two or three years of high
school study may be enough to separate the non-language student
from the language student in the business world.
Language teachers Mrs. lacqui Becker, above and right, and Mrs. Lynda Pate,

and Valerie Teachout.

Although he considers it an important facet, his day
in the classroom at NKC is only one facet of what
occupies the time of social studies teacher, Dr. Bill Cross.
After hours during the school year, Dr. Cross is still
involved with education as he helps coach girls' track,
serves as a building representative for NKCNEA, teaches
graduate classes for teachers, and does consulting work
for other school districts, Away from school he serves
on the Board of Directors of the local American Red
Cross chapter, is director of aquatics for Clay County,
writes and is involved with his church.
Dr. Cross has had a total of 15 years at Northtown.
He taught 12 years here before going to Kansas State
University at Manhattan where he earned his doctorate
and taught for six years. When he returned to the
district, he spent four years at Northgate until its closing
and has been back at NKC for three years.

Most high school students attend school to get an
education to prepare them for college, but approximately
thirty area high school students, including one girl, attend
a theme school for half a day to learn skills necessary to build
a house. Other theme schools in the district teach students
health occupational skills, and interior decorating skills.
The building trade theme school has been in existence
for two years. "The students are in the classroom for the
first three to four weeks of school to learn how to build
the house," stated Mr. Stephen Smith, building trade theme
school instructor. When the home is completed in May, it
will be sold to the highest bidder by means of sealed bids.
Basic carpentry, concrete, roofing, skywalling, cabinet-
making, finish carpentry, interior decorating, and landscap-
ing are just a few of the skills the students learn throughout
the nine-month program. These skills can be applied to any
According to Mr. Smith, the purpose of the class is to
help young people learn a trade or to find out "where their
interests lie". This gives them a little head start in the
employment world over most students, because they have
learned a useful trade along with the regular academic skills.

"I enjoy being unique," explained Mr. Gene
McClain, art teacher and designer of the various
characters that plague many of Northtown's
all-school assemblies. The creations included an
armadillo, a- turkey, and E.T., the extra-terrestrial
being that won the hearts of many Americans. He
enjoys dressing up and also having the ability to
create his own outfits to suit the occasion.
lt all began when he started making costumes
at Halloween time for his children. Then people at
school began asking him to appear in various
assemblies. It is almost a tradition at Northtown for
Mr. McClain to appear at certain assemblies during
the year like Thanksgiving and the fall and winter
Most of the creatures are made of paper mache
and cardboard. lt takes Mr. McClain anywhere from
one to four hours to complete a costume. He gets
most of his ideas from current trends, and movies
dealing with science fiction and the future. He also
likes to do something nobody else would think of.
He has also done some rock and pop stars.

INDEPENDENT LIVING - CREDIT: V2 unitj GRADE: 12,
PREREQUISITE: No Home Economics in grades 9-11.
Course teaches basic cooking skills, minor sewing skills,
and skills important to those living alone. Study topics
include apartment selection, food preparation, clothing

This is the course description of the Independent Living
class as taught by Mrs. Lynne Beasley. The class is basically
an all-male class.
The guys learned to sew everything from a rip or a
button, to a pair of shorts and backpacks. They also learned
how to fend for themselves in the "cruel" world.

curriculum. In this picture, he doesn't even seem .

With the coming of inflation, budget cuts had to be
made. Every department was affected, including the Driver's
The major problem with the budget cuts to the
department was the cars that were used to teach students
proper driving techniques had to be stricken from the
curriculum. When asked about the effect this would have
on the classes, Mr. Leland O'Dell, driving instructor, replied
that more time would be devoted to classroom projects and
more time would be spent driving the simulators. Other
activities, such as outside speakers and training films, would
also be used to fill class time. 4
When asked what some of the students thought of the
cars being eliminated from the class, senior Kim Hutsell
replied, "Without actual driving, it's not as good."
Above left: Blake Scott, junior, finds that driving in the simulators in
Driver's Education class is a very stimulating learning experience and
listens intently for the next directions.

fun as dodging the pedestrians in the training film, as Mr. Leland O'Dell
reassures them that their time is coming soon.
Above right: Classroom work is part of the curriculum for these young
drivers. This experience includes making a complete report on buying
a used car on a fixed income, and financing it for a year.

a winning season. They ended the season with a record
of 19 wins and 9 losses. This was after the team took
1st in two tournaments and went to the Quarterfinals
of the state tournament.
The team had no superstars, but had teamwork
which was impossible to stop. Robin West led the team
in assists with 114. Rhonda McConnell was the leading

The lady l.V. Hornets started the season with 3 wins
and 3 losses. Then they won 13 straight, and ended the
season 16 and 3. This was the highest total of wins by
any LV. squad since the program was founded. It also
was good enough for taking first in conference, with a
10 and 0 record in conference.
Teamwork and spirit was the key to this very
successful season. The team averaged 52.6 points a game
and their opponents only averaged 33.3 a game. Coach
Bruce Knipfel feels that these girls are a prime example
of what competitive athletes should be like.

This year was a new start for something different
in the line of spirit. Last year the group who supported
sports was called Pep Club. This club was made up all
of girls who had to wear uniforms on certain days for
points and were required to attend so many games or
meets for points.
This year the Pep Club name was changed to Spirit
Club and both boys and girls were able to join. There
were no uniform requirements but shirts were given to
members when they joined. There was no system to
follow or points to achieve.
These boys and girls provided spirit for basketball,
football, wrestling, track, cross country, softball, and

The 1982 musical was entitled "Grease."
"Grease" takes place during the school year
of 1958 and 1959. The play revolves around
the romance of two teenagers at Rydell
High. The story opens at the start of a new
school year. Sandy, the new girl at school,
discovers that Danny, her summer sweet-
heart, also goes to Rydell High. Sandy and
Danny try to get involved in many school
activities to impress one another, but neither
feel comfortable in the cliques at school.
Danny later ignores Sandy to uphold his
reputation and to keep his friends. By the
end of the school year Sandy and Danny
discover that they were made for each other,
and are together again.

Certain events that happen
in the life of students at NKC
make their years at school even
better. The 1982-83 school year
was made special because of
many activities involving stu-
dents and a few celebrities.
Arm wrestling took place
during an activity period, as did
the band Defiance. The Sharks, a
local band, appeared at a PTSA
dance. Curly Neill, of the Harlem
Globetrotters, stopped at North-
town and showed the basketball
team his form of basketball. The
Comets also visited school to
compete in a game of volleyball
and soccer against a few students
and members of the faculty.
These events were only a few of
the special events that made
1982-83 a successful year, and
distinctive from all other years.

A dinner dance for orthtow
A new tradition was started at Prom this year.
Prom was at the Inn, where dinner was also served.
Many people were opposed to this new idea, but
the local hotels do not like to rent rooms for
dances without serving dinner, and finances forced
Since the junior Class decided to have dinner
with Prom the Prom tickets cost twenty-six dollars
per couple. This price also included the rental fee
for the room. So with the money that the junior
Class raised, party favors were bought for the
dance. One of the favors was a leather penny that

The stars came out on September 17, 1982, when eight girls made their
debut as Northtown's 1982-83 Homecoming queen candidates.
Tradition was again changed this year as eight candidates were chosen
instead of the usual seven. Carla Classen, Tami Evans, Melode Libra, Kris
Lombardo, Betsy Palmer, Angela Wendling, Lynn White, and jeri Yeager were
announced as the stars of "Movieola", this year's Homecoming theme.
This year a special guest was present at Homecoming, Dr. Ben Aaron.
Dr. Aaron, a former graduate of Northtown, operated on President Reagan
after the attempt made on Mr. Reagan's life. Dr. Aaron addressed the student
body during the Homecoming assembly and congratulated the candidates.
After school, the annual Homecoming parade was held. Floats, cars
decorated by students, and candidates all appeared in the spirit parade.
During half-time at the Homecoming football game the winning floats were
awarded their prizes by Booster Club. The candidates were then escorted
onto the football field. Half-time came to a close as Miss jeri Yeager was
announced as Northtown's 1982-83 Homecoming queen.
The evening ended with Northtown's victory over the Belton Pirates. The
final score of the game was Northtown 18 - Belton 13.

The invitational Assembly took the audience back
to the days of castles, kings, and knights to introduce
the three Queen candidates. The Invitational Queen
candidates were Kelly Butler, Shelly Litrell, and Robin
Rozell. The Wrestling Squad had chosen these three
girls, whom they felt had supported the team the most.
Shelly Litrell was crowned Queen during the 22nd

Of the 56 students in the COE
program, Sharon Mussurici does some-
thing somewhat different than the rest
who leave school early to go to work. She
goes to Glamour Tress School of Hair.
Sharon said, "Going to Glamour Tress
School is a big experience in itself. When
I started there, I had long blondish-brown
hair. By watching all the different cuts
and colors it really makes you want to
experiment. For me, I'm always looking
for something new.
"The first thing I did was to have my
hair permed. But that wasn't enough. So
one day as I was looking at the color
charts, I decided to mix up something
new. Well, I did and now I have a
burgundy-plum hair color. It really stands
out in the sunlight."

Does an eight o'clock bedtime for a senior in high
school seem early? Not for swimmer Andy Maynard. When
he wakes up at 4:30 a.m., he puts in many hours or long
and hard practices.
Andy has been swimming for the Clay-Platte Y.M.C.A.
since the age of eight. Every morning he swims from 5:00
a.m. to 6:30 a.m. and after school at 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
As well as swimming an average of six miles a day in
his 2-a-day workouts, he also lifts weights 3 days a week to
build up endurance, strength, and power.
Tri-weekly swim meets throughout the school year are
held in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and
Florida. In 1982 Andy swam the 200 meter back stroke in
2:08.5, 100 meter back stroke in 58.5, and the 100 meter
breast stroke in 1:04. These scores put him in the 62nd
position for the Y.M.C.A. Nationals. Andy has 20 trophies
and hundreds of medals. Despite all of the time he puts into
his swimming, he thinks it is worth the time and effort.

How would you like to get batting

from Frank White, and base stealing
from Willie Wilson? john West has
since he became a batboy for the
Kansas City Royals in 1979.
Once the season begins john has ,
a full schedule ahead of him. On game
days he goes straight from school to
the stadium. At the stadium he dresses
into his uniform and heads to the field
to shag balls.
After batting practice, john picks
up the balls and straightens up the bats
in preparation for the game. During
the game he gets foul balls off the
screen and picks up the helmets and
bats. After the game he cleans up the
dugout and leaves the stadium around
john does alot of traveling with
the Royals. In 1980 he went to New
York for the playoffs, then on to
Philadelphia for the World Series. In

As with any year many fads hit the
school during 1982-83.
A number of male students
pierced their left ears. They were
motivated because, "it looks neat and
it kicks." Most of the parents didn't
like it and some parents told them to
take the earring out or get out.
Another fad was the punk haircut.
This style consists of the hair left long
in the back and on top and the sides
and front are shaved.
Girls started to wear mini skirts,
ballet type shoes, and colored tights.
Guys dressed by cutting the sleeves
out of their shirts and wearing flood
water jeans. They usually had a punk
haircut to go along with these outfits.

lt's a classic tale - the Hollywood
agent comes across a young girl in a
drug store and makes her a star. Well
for NKC junior, Suzan Howard, it
wasn't a Hollywood agent and she's not
a star yet, but the basic plot is the
While shopping in Parkville one
day, a man approached her and asked
Suzan to pose for him as a photog-
rapher's model. The man turned out to
be of questionable character, but
Suzan was motivated to strike out on
her own at the age of 14. She put
together a portfolio to show some
prospective employers, and the com-
posite shown at the right to leave with
them, and headed out for the pho-
tography studios and advertising agen-
Her ensuing success keeps her
busy, and she earns about S65 per hour
with runways shows and photo layouts.
She is under consideration for a lead
part in a new movie "Space Patrol".

Prom planners this year felt the
economic crunch and were forced into
a change of form, thus initiating NKC's
first dinner-dance prom.
The admission price was 526.00
per couple, which covered both meals.
Prom was at The lnn at Executive Park
on April 30 from 7 p.m. to midnight.
The meal consisted of French
onion soup, garden salad, prime rib,
baked potato, vegetables, bread and
The Sharks, who have played at
various Northland functions, provided
the music. "A Penny for your
Thoughts", the theme, was carried out
in favors given to the guests. Those
attending received "I Like NKC" mugs
and leather penny coasters. The
coasters and invitations immediately
became collectors' items with the
unique spelling of "penney".

good year. They helped out in many
fund raisers. They sold the Class of '86

helped STUCO by selling I Love N.K.C.

Pool sharks are usually thought to
be fat, bald, and 55 years old. By
contrast N.K.C.'s pool expert is trim,
has lots of hair, and is only 14 years old.
Despite his relative youth, fresh-
man Larry Mael is quite a seasoned
veteran of 8 and 9 ball competition. He
is the only under 21 member of the 30
member Heart of America Pool
Association that meets every Tuesday
evening at the N.K.C. Pro Bowl.
May 7, Larry competed in the
Missouri State Championship, but
unfortunately did not qualify for the
trip to the Nationals in Detroit.
Through adult level competition Larry
has met some of the best in the field.
Like most players, he practices daily,
but receives little formal instruction. If
he sees something he likes, he just
watches the player very closely and
then practices on his own until he
masters the shot.

In spite of all the negative publicity
about schools and the hard job and the
low pay of teachers, both Mrs. Doris
Lamkins and Mr. Glen McDole, retiring
after 27 years in the classroom, say they
would choose to go into teaching if
they had to do it all over again.
During his career, Mr. McDole has
taught drafting, metal shop, wood and
study hall. The times he says he will
remember most fondly were the
contests his students won with the
projects they had made.
Mrs. Lamkins recalls two memor-
able moments of her career. In 1979
she was voted favorite teacher, and on
another occasion a scholarship student
wrote an essay about Mrs. Lamkins and
her accounting class. Besides account-
ing, Mrs. Lamkins has taught basic
business, record keeping, economics,
personal typing and clerical practice.
Neither teacher plans a specific
course for retirement, choosing rather
to enjoy the new free time to travel

The North Kansas City High
School is one of the three high schools
serving the North Kansas City School
District. Its simple beginning was in a
two room building erected during the
summer of 1913, approximately one
block from the present location.
ln 1914-15 the second year of high
school was added. It was at this time
that two additional rooms were added
to the existing structure of high school.
The present high school is a
campus type organization, composed
of six individual structures. The main
building was constructed in 1925,
housing a majority of the classrooms
and offices. The "annex" was built in
1950, it houses the gymnasium, nurse's
office and a number of classrooms. ln
1958, because of expanding enroll-
ment at the time, the Dagg building
was taken over for additional class-
rooms. In 1959, a northwest wing was
added to accomomdate the music
department and cafeteria. In 1961, a
new library was constructed between
the main building and the annex. The
industrial arts building, located directly
behind the gymnasium, was built in
1962. In 1981-82 the Dagg building was
closed and in the 1982-83 year half of
the Norclay Elementary School was
used for high school classes.
Since 1962, there has been no
major renovation until last year.
Architect, Herschel Tognascioli was
hired to redesign and bring the school
more up-to-date. The contractor hired
to do the work during both summers
of the project was Drexel-Noble.
So far the renovation has cost a
little over a million dollars and is
expected to cost around S978,000
more, before all work is completed.
After this project, no other major
renovations are planned for the
