SUPERINTENDENT 'S MESSAGE
You who are graduating,
Are you going to get yrur Job?
You will, if:
You keep on smiling, though your patience

You keep on asking, though gon have asked
a hundred times or even a t ousandg
You keep on preparing, though you may have
a college degree or even much more,
You keep on making friends, though you are
friends with every soul in town or many towns,
For it's by multiplying your efforts a thousand fold,
that your plans work out even far above your fondest
Were it in my gower to do so I would grant that
your every w s some true. f am sorryg that power
is not mine. It has been given to you. In you
and you alone rests the power to secure your 1ife's
ambi ions. I only can w sh for you the very best
' ix 593, .,,. ,".fwy Il IV

One of the most important things we have learned in guy
entirely too short years at dear old N.H.S., is all good
things must at some time come to an end. So, much to the
regret of all concerned, it becomes our painful yet neces-
sary duty to bequest various and sundry articles, for which
we can find no further use, to those of you who have yet
to finish this phase of your education. You, our benefic-
iaries, must understand that we now hold these below men-
tioned as sacred and that you must hold them as such with
all the care and respect possible. With proper use and
observance practically all of these will aid you in achiev-
ing your goal in these palatial halls of learning. Then,
you may follow our fine example and pass them on to those
who are yet to come. We hope, of course, that they too
will derive the same enjoyment from them that we are con-
fident you will surely do.
So let it be known that we, Class of 1957, of the
Napavine High School, in the County of Lewis, and State
of Washington, being of sound and disposing mind and mem-
ory, do make, publish and declare this instrument to be
our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former
wills by us made.
C12 To the student body as a whole, who have been our
constant companions throughout our four years. we leave
Offut Lake as a permanent picnicking grounds, a'boQkeeniSt-
led W0ld Familiar Placesu and the G.M.C. for transportation
facilities. What more could you ask?????'
C25 To the Class of 1958 we give and bequeath all
the flowers and ribbons worn by us on these festive occas-
ions, to be used by them in decorating for their Commence-
Q52 To the class of 1959 we leave our wit, wisdom,
charm, good looks, and our importance, all of which we
possess in enormous quantities, with the added advice
that by striving hard, you will probably graduate. Take
us, for example.
Q45 To the class of 1940 we leave a huge quantity
of perseverance. You'll surely need it before you grad-

thirty strong and hopeful climbers made a second step

the Climbers over the rough places for another year.
Unfortunately, the Climbers did not have 'Amil Lar-
mon, Bud and Myrtle Foister, Donald Grimes, Frank Bagan,
Junior Hodges, Phyllis Ricker, and Virginia to make the
second step with them. Two new Climbers, however, joined
them. They were Louise and Luella Davis.

en Martin, President, Wilma Hanson, vice president, Pat
Fowler, secretary, Elizabeth Kulsley, treasurerg and Alice
Jimmie Carroll and Genevieve Evans were the student

of a scavenger hunt and a thrilling show. Everyone re-
ported a rip-roaring time ---- especially Pat??????
On December 23 the Climbers presented a literary
program consisting of a play entitled, WJust What They
Wantedn and several other good numbers. After that Santa
Claus arrived with a bag df sandy for the big kiddies...
The second semester was a very beneficial one wlth
the following officers: Wilma Hanson, president, Herchel
Johnson, vice presidentg Genevieve Evans, secretary, Eliz-
abeth Kulsley treasurer, a d Margaret Heitman, Sargeant-
at-Arms. Fred Buckavic and Pat Fowler were student coun-

The Climbers were very disappointed when Louise
Davis was unable to climb due to illness. Albert Davis
did not finish the climb.
On May 7, the climbers took time out for a trip to
Deep Lake where they had an exciting time.
The climbers adjourned on June fourth and decided
this year had been a profitable one.

A navigating party landed at old NHS for a whole
long year of hard study. Learning that Miss Dorothy
Ward was their advisor, they kept her busy answering
questions about initiation.
Though many dreaded it, everyone came out alive.
Some of the outstanding things that happened at initia-
tion were Zoel Samples and Edward Pemerl demonstrating
how to be happy though married, May Young and Art Brock
using the same type of technique in making love to one
another. Buttonhole Smith enjoying herself when nspeaking
her mindn about some members of the faculty.
Class leaders were as follows: President, Bud
Eiswald and Ted Dec, vice-president, John Halloway and
Art Brock, secretary, Ted Dec, and Helen Seroshehg treas-
urer, Orabelle St. John, council representatives, Helen
Seroshek, Billy Moses, Zoel Samples, and Edward Bemerl.
It wasn't long until these Navigators were informed
that they were to give a program for the student body.
An original amatuer variety program was presentlifla with In
Arthur Brock acting as master of ceremonies. A piano solo,
an infant marvel, a saxophone solo, a duet, and a bathroom
band were included in the repertoire.
A theatre party was a social event of the year which
will be long remembered. After seeing, WBig Broadcast of
l957n at the St. Helens Theatre, the group indulged in
light refreshments before returning home.
As their last outstanding social event for the year,
the Freshmen had a picnic at Deep Lake on April 50.

For the second year Nepavine has ever participated
in track, the results have been better than average in
Last year the cinder men won ghiguynece in the coun
ty. This year they went one better and grabbed second
p ace. r
H k There were meets with Chehalis, Toledo, and Castle

The positions the boys won in the Lewis County meet
were as follows:
440 Carlson first
880 Carlson first

pole vault Wallace second '
Discus T Linhart second
Pierce third -
Milton Dunham, Arnold Carlson, and Russell Linhart
were entered in the Southwest Washington meet at Cen-
tralia. Although the boys came close to winning, the
competition was a little too good.
The Napavine golfers had a perfect season as they
took Chehalis and Longview into camp by the scores of
twelve to zero and six and one-half to five and unaehalf
Those on the golf team were Stanley Dec, Lester
Slade, Howard Kure, and Lester Kure.
During the past year the basketball team was
handicapped by lack of experience and size. Mor-
avec was the only returning letterman. Most of the
boys were smaller than last year s team. 'The biggest
triumphs of the gear were a win over Adna and a
double win over oledov A few points in the right
games would have made Napavine a title contenler,
for the Tigers were beaten badly only by Boistfort.

WIN THE YEAR OF 19509
Bells are tooting, whistles are blowing, and confetti
is blowing about. The old year is gone, but not forgotten-
l95O is now here! I, Shannon O'Nei1, the author, and my
assistant, May Selph, are throwing a big reunion midnite
party at my large home in Napavine.
The purpose has been to have a reunion of all the
class of dear old Napavine's '37. And my purpose has been
rather well fulfilled. Of course, there are some who are
unable to attend, but I shall call on them separately.
V Among the guests are Mrs. Lucille Gorley and her old
man, Roy Gorley. She said they live on a stump ranch
two miles south of Napavine. She does equally well, either
in making apple pies or blasting stumps with her husband.
Clark Nicewonger has found himself a nice little
woman, Helen Woroch, and he is making a profitable living
digging graves. He says that business is always better
in the winter months!
For my program of the late evening, I was able to
persuade Miss Bonnie Van Cleve, Know Mrs. Harry GorleyQ,
the famous fan dancer, to do a number. e - A

of milk to the Darigold Company in Chehalis every other day.
I bid goodbye to Joyce and started out to see Law-
rence Newman and Arnold Carlson. On my way out there I saw
on one of the roadsides, Vernon Moravec leaning on a shovel
in a P W A position.
At Newman's he told me that his position was that
of agriculture instructer at Napavine High School. He said
that he was the first man to hold down the Job. CThe other
eighteen years they had hired Swedes.,
I was unable to see Arnold as he is now an All,
American tackle on one of the leading professional teams.
He roomed with Lester Kure, who is the world's champion
heavyweight wrestler, also known as Uwild Man Twerpn. Newman
gave me a couple of tickets to see his next match in Chicago.
