THE OLD JAIL
As Jackson County grew, the need for a system of law
and order developed. With this need for law becoming
more necessary, a twelve-cell iail with two-foot thick
limestone walls was constructed in 1859 by order of the
Jackson County Court. This was the county's third iail,
for its rapid growth had caused the two earlier structures
to become small and outdated.
During the Civil War, the Jackson County iail was the
location of exciting and violent moments. Following the
war it was occupied by famous outlaw gangs such as
the notorious James gang.
In 1933 the iail was closed by the sheriff, and ln-
dependence then acquired the property. With a feeling
that the structure was important to the city, the Jackson
County Historical Society restored the old iail in 1959 and
today it appears much as it did in the l87O's.

Teachers engage in building strong minds
In a progressive world it becomes essential for citizens to have an
education. It is the teacher's responsibility to provide every student with
an opportunity to receive an education. The fifty-six persons who make up
the teaching staff of Truman High School set the pace for the school year
and lay the basis for knowledge gained through willing and eager
participation. As required by the state of Missouri, these men and women
have spent at least four years earning their college degrees and teaching
The responsibilities of a faculty member seem varied and time-consum-
ing, however, their first obligation is to instruct and guide their pupils. This
duty involves not only working during school hours leading class discus-
sions or administering tests, but also working after school preparing les-
sons and grading assignments. During evening hours they must frequently
attend PTA meetings and special teacher's meetings. After spending a
busy day in classrooms, many teachers add extra hours to their day by
sponsoring extra-curricular activities and organizations.
The life of a teacher is busy, but highly important. The influence of the
faculty cannot be measured during the high school years only. Their im-
pression on students they teach will go beyond these years and affect the
students' later life. This influence can be the force to build good citizens of
the future. '

The size and population of Independence soon
began to grow steadily, and with this came the
need for a newer andvmore modern courthouse. ln 1932
construction was begun on Jackson County's fifth court-
house, which was completed in 1933. Harry Truman, pre-
siding iudge of the County Court at that time, took almost
complete responsibility for this proiect. He took it upon
himself to make a tour of the South in order to find a
suitable architectural design and finally selected one
with a colonial atmosphere.
Outstanding features of this landmark include an
inlaid seal of Missouri over the north portico and the
county seal over the south portico, a four-faced Seth
Thomas clock and the well-known statue' of General
Andrew Jackson situated on the front lawn. -

Studying various eras in history through the writings
of these periods is the basic program ofthe literature

contemporary magazines in that language. Spanish classes
explore and observe customs of the country, such as the
traditional breaking of a pinata. Through reports and colorful

Science extends a diversity of studies
Advanced biology students innoculate slides with bacteria and then add a stain
which penetrates the bacteria so it will show under o microscope.
Accurate measures are necessary for successful
experiments. Chemistry students learn how to use
the new balances in the balance room.
By use of a pendulum, physics students John Smith, Bill Neely Bob Rupe Bull Herbst and Greg Price perform
an experiment which measures the pull of gravity.
from protoplasm to molecular structure
Science is making an increasing impact on the
personal life of everyone. The science department of
Truman emphasizes discovery through investigation
and experimentation. Emphasis is on the creativeness
of the individual in solving a problem rather than
simply finding the predictable answers.
Biology students are acquainted with basic biological
theories. This study gives the individual an understanding
of the organization and complexities of life.
CHEM study directs the student to observe in experi-
mental work, to find regularities in patterns and to
discover the way of their existence.
The course in physics consists of four main points:
the universe, optics and waves, mechanics and heat and
electricity and modern physics. Through the course of

The math department at Truman High School stresses
a better understanding of numbers and figures. This
goal, accomplished through various techniques, provides
knowledge which can later be used in business and
family budgeting. Class participation and activity lay
a basis for homework and study done outside the class-
room, giving each student the practice needed to
improve mathematical skills.
Basic courses offered are functional math, terminal
math, algebra and geometry. Students who desire a
higher degree of specialization in mathematics may
enroll in trigonometry or math analysis.

Giving students an opportunity to increase their knowl-
edge of past and current events is the goal of the social
science department at Truman.
All students are required to take world history and
American history. Besides dealing with past events in
the history of foreign nations and the United States,
these classes also help students understand the present
and anticipate the future.

Whether they plan to go into business or use their
training for other purposes, commerce students probably
will find their courses valuable to them in the future.
Although many students will not become stenogra-
phers or secretaries, they find other opportunities to
use their skills. College students will find thattaking notes
in shorthand improves their rate and accuracy, and
anyone who writes a formal letter, theme, or composition
finds typing essential. . '

jobs is the goal of Cooperative Occupational Education and
Supervised Office Occupations.
The COE program encourages students to take an active
part in extracurricular activites through participation in iobs
outside of school. Students enrolled in COE go to school for
four periods and then devote the remaining part ofthe school
day to their iobs. These iolos involve a variety of 'different
interests such as clerking in a department store, sacking or
stocking in a grocery store and working as gas station
SOO students also devote part of the school day to out-
side iobs. Being limited to clerical work, students are en-
rolled in a secretarial or clerical practice class to further
develop the commercial skills they use.
COE sponsor is Mr. Kenneth Smith, and SOO sponsor is

THE TRUMAN HOME
While President Truman was in office, his home in
Independence was often referred to as "the summer
White House." This house was constructed in the 1860's
by George Porterfield Gates, Mrs. Truman's grandfather,
and has been part of the family ever since. When her
grandfather died, the then Bess Wallace packed up her
belongings and took her mother to live with her widowed
grandmother. This remained her home even after her
marriage to Harry S ,Truman on June 28, I9I9. The now-
famous home was the birthplace of their only child,
During President Truman's administration, the Secret
Service installed the iron fence to protect the home and
its occupants from the souvenir seekers and tourists who
flock to see this historic landmark.

opportunity to aid the under-privileged. An example
of this is the Veterans' Christmas Stocking proiect.
Each homeroom has the chance to fill a stocking for
a veteran who is a patient in the Kansas City Veterans'
Other proiects ot the Red Cross include an auxiliary
service to the Independence Red Cross program of
recorded Christmas messages, constructing a float for
the annual Independence Halloween Parade, sponsoring
a Truman representative to make a trip to the Unity

TH E TRUMAN LIBRARY
The Truman Library gives Independence a lasting
reminder of the fact that at one time one of its citizens
served as President of the United States. All this is due
to the foresight of Harry SxTruman,who arranged to pre-
serve the historical -remnants of his administration before
leaving the Presidency in 1953.
The 51,700,000 library, financed by private donations,
was given to the Federal Government at the formal
dedication on July 6, l957. At this dedication such

This year a new field was added to the growing
athletic program at Truman. Competitive wrestling,
open to any sophomore, iunior or senior boy, began its
first season with thirty participating matmen.
Daily practice after school included calisthenics
and exercises designed to develop the skills needed
for the sport. Basic techniques, moves, and holds are
perfected through mock bouts between varsity and
iunior varsity team members.
The boys are divided into weight classes ranging
from the 95-pound category to 180-pound heavy-
weights. Matches are held in the school gymnasium,
and a point system is used for scoring.

The class of Il968 makes its mark
Beginning their first year at Truman, sophomores become
part of this history-making year as they help establish the
traditions, standards and ideals for future classes.
Sophomores perhaps find high school to be a rather
different experience as they become involved in the flurry
of activity present at Truman. They gained recognition
through participation in athletic, music, organizational and
With the experience and knowledge gained this year
through many events and activities, sophomores have the
opportunity to be better prepared to meet the more difficult
scholastic challenges of the future.
Phil Bosler, Mickey Rupe, Joe Laxson and Dotty Craig find
holding a class office an experience which requires both
leadership and responsibility.

Hap Graff, Barrie Smith, Susie Walters and Kay Carlisle often
meet at spare moments to discuss various activities and events
in store for fellow classmates.
Observing the turning point in their high school years,
juniors find old problems and situations appearing in
new aspects and with different approaches and -solu-
tions. With one year of high school life behind them,
they are faced with preparing themselves to meet the
challenges of one year beyond them. '
Truman iuniors learn to recognize duty and obligation
as they progress through another year of activity in
club and classroom alike. Fulfilling individual responsibil-
ities while upholding the reputation of their class
presents iunior students with a goal to keep in mind
as they prepare! to assume leadership as graduates of
presented to them by senior graduates

David works closely with Bob, Tanya and Lollie in selecting the design for
the senior announcements.
LOLLIE ZAN DER
Truman High School, growing through phy-
sical additions, also fosters an academic and
social expansion in The members of the senior
class: This expansion develops from active
participation in the classroom and on the foot-
ball field, at The library and during pep rallies,
at The lunch Table and in the lab.
Senior class members, working toward The
completion of a four-year period of growth and
transition, find Themselves The possessors of
certain hopes and ambitions. These aspirations
become their tools in building both a superior
senior class and a successful future life.
Assuming the role of leadership and ener-
getic cooperation in athletics, clubs, and class-
rooms, The Truman High School senior class of
1966 made history in the activity of its final year.
