The junior class of 1957 was on its way again with the help of its ad- visers, Mrs. Robb and Mr. Sawyer. They planned to make it a profitable year with their noon candy sales, car washing project, selling of subscriptions to the Brooklyn Exponent, and by raking the leaves on the school lawn. All of these were quite profit- able, even though quite a few people lost their enthusiasm and dicln't par- ticipate in the projects. The junior play, The Eyes of TLALOC, was presented on April l2th, under the direction of Mr. Whitehead. The three main characters were played by Martha Hurford, Tom Smith, and Roger Copsey. One of the biggest moments for the juniors was the day when their class rings came. After the first few weeks the usual exchange of rings between girls and boys subsided. After much campaigning and speech making the election for Student Council President was held. Pat Jentzen came out as victor. Although Roger Copsey, an opponent of Pat's, was defeated in that field, he became - successful in another by becoming editor of the Pirateer. There were also other successful students in the class. Becky Rowley wrote an essay that was printed by the National Essay Association of Los Angeles, California and Emie Adams got all-county for his efforts on the football team. Throughout the year the juniors have had their surprises and disappoint- ments and good times and bad, but now that the junior year is over it has been the happiest year of them all. 1 ff' ' uh.

STUDENT COUNCIL 'I'he month of October was an unusually busy month for the mem- bers of the Student Council. On the twelfth, Peggy Leeke, Ken Bostedor, and Pat Ientzen went to Ann Arbor as representatives to the Michigan Conference of Student Councils. Later in October the Stu- dent Council sponsored the Homecoming Festival in which Pat Thomas and Bob Leach were crowned King and Queen. The financial resources were increased by sponsoring a dance and selling ball point pens with Napoleon emblems on them. A well rounded noon hour program was set up. Two new ping pong tables were purchased. Throughout the year four assemblies were financed for the educational entertainment of the students. The first one, held October 3, featured the Ambassadors Quartette. On December 3, The Deep River Quartette put on a performance. The next assembly was held on January 24, when Jack Noble, a cartoonist, entertained the students. On February 27, the Gregorys put on a fine show of musical talent. On the 25th of March a county student council meeting was held at Jackson High School. Napoleon sent two representatives, Fred Wendt and Shirley Upham: Two members, Jane DeBute and Ron Green, were also sent to Grand Rapids for a state Student Council rneeung in April. The main goal of the Student Council has been to increase student participation in the governing of school activities. Penalties are imposed on groups which fail to obtain approval of the colmcil for all their money making projects. THE BUCCANEER STAFF This year the staff was extended to include many students from the underclassmen in the hope that such a policy might bring better coverage of school and community activities. Editor and Assistant Editor were Bob Leach and Judy DeBute re- spectively. Judy Schenck and Ken Bostedor acted as Business Mana- gers. Janet Bouldrey and Marjorie Basom arranged the faculty page while Peggy Leeke had charge of the pages devoted to the Seniors and their activities. Our treasurer was Virginia Henderson. Alice Furkey scheduled the pictures taken in large part by Mr. Strath- mann of Dunhanna. Responsible for the typing were Ginger Hernry, Arlene Jones, Judy Garwood, Camille Harris, Beverly Aiken, and Mary Lou Rutan. Sports pages were arranged by Duane Brooks. The organizations editors were Dick Tallrnan and Rita Upham. Members of the senior class helped the underclass editors with their pages. Bob Wells worked with Rita Walsh for the eleventh grade, Beverly Aiken with Bob Nall for the tenth grade, Diane Carpenter with Jackie Upham for the ninth grade, and with Tanya Hawley for the eighth grade. Karyn Smith worked on the seventh grade page. Jennie Fouty acted as art editor. The following people submitted materials for the organization pages: Fred Wendt for Student Council, Library, Margaret Boydeng Cheerleaders, Karmen Hawleyg Bible Club, Marlene Windgateg Plrateel Staff, Candyce Williams, FHA, Jane Ross, Band, Joan Schenck, Senior Play, Judy Garwoodg Jr. Play, Candyce Williams. Though the price per book to student is 52.50, the actual cost is almost 35.00. Our advertisers pay the remaining cost of the publica- tion of our book. .14 X1lt Tanya Hawley, Jackie Upham, Karyn Smith Nall, Marlene Windgate, Margaret Boyden, SITTING: Marjorie Basom, Mary Lou Rutan Mrs. Richardson.

It is the only high school paper in the county that is put out every week. Last year the Plrateer received an award for their Michigan Week Paper. This was a state contest. Each year at the end of the first semester the Board members have a meeting and select the new Editor and other officers. Roger Copsey was elected the new Editor for this year. During the past year the Pirateer has practically doubled in size and two new sections have been added. They are a Science Page, con- sisting of articles written by the studems, and a Roving Reporter, who interviews the students to get their opinions on matters of importance to the school or the community. The Pirateer Staff is now working very hard to earn enough money to purchase a new printing machine. - tw s l rn 1 i ' ff J. .41 ,n 1, E , E W BIBLE CLUB STANDDIG, left to right: Darlene Miller, Janet Maule, Paula Hartman, David Warren, Sandra Cox, Carolyn Carpenter, Miss Tipton, adviser.

The purposes of this club are to interest students in the teaching profession, to give students interested in becoming teachers prevocational information and exper- ience, to learn how and where teachers receive their training and to study the lives and the influence of the great teachers. Officers were elected as follows: Judy DeBute, president, Judy Schenck, secretary, and Virginia Henderson, treasurer. The name chosen for the club was that of Mr. Fred Jeffers, a former graduate of Napoleon High School, who is well known in state and national educational circles. The members of the club voted to affiliate with the National Education Association and the Michigan Education Association. On January 23 at a teachers meeting Mr. Morris presented us with our charter. In January our club met with the Brooklyn chapter at a regular meeting and May 1, we entertained their members here at a luncheon meeting, To defray expenses of our FTA pins our club sold sloppy joes.

This was a very prosperous year for the Future Hornemakers of America. For one week during the smnrner the President and Vice President of the club, Jane DeBute and Darlene Miller attended Leadership Training Camp which was held at Montague, Michigan on Lake Michigan. The girls had a wonderful time and found it very helpful. To get the year off to a good start officers were elected to fill the offices which had not been filled in the spring. One of the highlights of the year was the initiation of the Freshman girls. For the informal initiation the prospective members came to school dressed in ridiculous outfits consisting of boots, burlap dresses and mens' hats garnished with a variety of vegetables. Later the Formal Initiation was held. The members of the club helped the girls in Michigan Center to organize an FHA Club. For the first time in several years two girls from Napoleon were elected as officers of Region Ill. Pat Ientzen was elected as Chairman and Darlene Miller as Secretary. 'I'he Regional Meeting was held at Brooklyn High School. Six girls attended the State Meeting at Grand Rapids. They were Sally Ientzen, Pat Jentzen, Janet Maule, Jane Ross and Ioan Coffey. The club undertook several projects and many activities for the year. The main projects were decorating the school at Christmas time and sponsoring Clean Up Week, which was carried on with the cooperation of the Student Council. Among the activities were, serving hot chocolate and cookies to the basketball team, attending Fun Night at Manchester, Daddy Date Night, to which the girls took their 'daddies' to dinner and afterwards played games, and visiting the Rebecca Home where the girls served old -fashioned cookies and ice cream to the elderly people. The FHA, with Mrs. Zetta Robb as adviser, is doing a wonderful job in serving the family, school and community. r "1 M , '.l,,....-,.. a , ' W0 NAPOLEON HIGH SCHOOL BAND FIRST ROW: Marlon Divine, Ruth Ann Jester, Carolyn Watkins, Linda Hahn, Mary Ann Holdridge, Patty Kirk, Ron Smith.

The band also presented half time performances at all football games played at home as well as the game played at East Jackson. September 24, the fall concert was held. The band joined the Speech Department and the Chorus during the holidays in a Crhistrnas pro- gram presented by the Student Council. We also played for the December meeting of the P.T.A. In January, the band members enjoyed a trip to Michigan State University to hear the Un1versity's concert band. Our Spring Concert was held April 5th, On May 18th we played in the Holland Tulip Festival where our special drills illustrated MY MERRY OLDSMOBILE, WHEN YOU WORE A TULIP, TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME, and OVER THE WAVES. The theme was based on the television show "'I'he Wide Wide Wor1d", for which Mr. Whitehead did the announcing, Cornmemorating Memorial Day the band assisted in the program at Norvell for the sixteenth year and at Napoleon for the twenty-first year. The band parents with the assistance of the band members established a fund for the purchase of new uniforms. This enterprise was very successful and the band now has new green and white uniforms which they wore for the first time at the Tulip Festival. In the district contest our band received a second rating. 27 OUR MISS BROOKS ' 'if I Mr- at FIRST ROW fseatedj: Mary Edington, Mary Lou Rutan, Janet Bouldrey, Virginia Henderson, Judy Car- Before the play, the make up. wood, Pat Thomas, Judy DeBute, Alice Furkey, Beverly Aiken.

The play THE EYES OF TLALOC is a mystery in three acts in which the suspense is gathered through lighting and sound effects. The lines which the actors speak are very well written to show the actors suspense and fright or to the other extreme their happiness. There have been many hours spent in obtaining the necessary setting pieces as well as gathering the sound equipment. Several problems occured in the making of the set. The idol had to be made and painted in free time throughout the weeks of work. The cast under the direction of Mr. Whitehead and student director, Candyce Williams and the many crew people have found this play most interesting to work with. Its variety of characters made the cast really work to achieve the idea presented by the author Emelie Peterson. The crew working for the scenery and sound effects found their tasks most challenging.

Among the 57 Seniors Ernie Adams received All County and Dick Dean-Honorable Mention. Anytime a squad earns half their games-Q4-3-lj for a third place finish, they've had a successful season: however, we've bccn accustomed, in the past, to winning more than that, and so it was rather hard to stornachour three losses, and that's as it should be. The desire to win is all important in football, just as the desire to succeed in life is all important. Potentially, I felt, we could have beaten all teams despite our lack of speed. Mistakes were commonplace, as we were a young ball club with six seniors out of sixty-six boys we finished the season with sixty of the sixty-six uniforms issued. Each and every boy I observed has his strengths and potentials in some or several de- partments. If each could have realized that potential, and I my voice, we 'd have been real tough. Concord, one of the co-titlists we licked, still maintains we were the hardest hitting club they faced all season, so you see considering our potential, our in- consistency hurt, as we looked good on one play and just the opposite on the next, gaining good yardage and then losing big yardage. WE DEFINITELY LACKED THE AGGRESSIVENESS AND DESIRE THAT HAVE CHARACTERIZED OUR TEAMS OF THE PAST. However, we've just concluded our fifth consecutive winning season. Our sen- iors had the opportunity of playing on two all winning teams before graduating, the '54-55" clubs. As one boy put it, "Most of the noise this year came from the bench, where in the past it came from the field." And as an official we have used since we started playing the game out here at Napoleon six years ago so appropriately expressed it, "You used to HEAR these Napoleon boys blocks and tackles, now you have to LOOK for a good block or tackle." We lacked that necessary encouragement to each other and were definitely without a leader on the field as for those of us returning, we have the winter hibemation period to think over our football and when we come back next fall, we should be WISER, HEAVIER, and I hope, more SPIRITED and AGGRESSIVE! ! !!

Coach Goodrich says, "This was the best shooting and fastest team I have ever coached. We hit in the 30's or 40's in all but two games. A fine rebotuider in Leon Pittman, two aggressive boys at forward, Dailey and Green, who played hard every game---a fine shooter in Bob Nall and good ball handler in Phil Marston made a fine team. We had good bench strength. Jerry Mull 'played seven games with the reserves before moving up to the varsity. 39 VARSITY Napoleon 66 " 69 " 39 70 ' 65 54 ' 45 52 51 50 I7 56 68 71 60 " 39 " 40 It was the first year in the last six that Napoleon hasn't had at least five boys mentioned in some capacity on the All-County or Honor- able-Mention squad. Some of the COMPETITIVE FIRE AND REAL DE- SIRE of our past ball clubs that one might think would have rubbed off on this squad, simply didn't. Defense plagued us--we worked at it at the beginning of the season but grew lazy as it progressed. We had a club capable of beating anyone. Our chief weaknesses were speed, defense and rebounding with a touch of laziness here and there.

C- 1 .L tg X 4 I1 Q 1 'x With the burning of the Napoleon High School gymnasium on the night of April 15, 1957 the dream of many a disgruntled school boy became stark reality. The school house was burning down. The fire was presumed to have started about eleven o'clock in the stage area, probably with the curtains. Earlier that evening a citizens' committee studying the high school facilities and accreditation problems had met in the gymnasium and heard a talk by representatives of the University of Michigan. After the meeting adjoumed, Mr. Kingdon carefully checked the doors and lights. State police and insurance investigators considered arson possible in the fire which was first noticed by Fred Watson a little after midnight. The upper stage was completely destroyed. The roof was dam- aged and the overhead steelwork distorted by the intense heat. One wall was cracked and the stage floor badly damaged. The gymnasium, used this past year for study hall, noon hour lunch, as well as sports, was unusable for any activity. The Prom was held in the Consumers Club House on Clark Lake and the usual awards assembly and the Alumni meeting for 1957 were entirely omitted. To insure room for classes for the rest of the school year the administration decided on two sessions for the high school. The senior high students came in the moming from 7:30 until 12:30g the junior high students attended classes from 12:30 until 4:30. The teachers worked in shifts also. AND CONSTRUCTION DESTRUCTION In the latter months of 1956 the citizens of Napoleon Township voted suf- ficient funds to build an addition to the Eby School, improvements for the present high school and a new elementary school at Ackerson Lake. Despite Q freezing weather work was begun immediately by the Hungerford Construction Company and continued throughout the winter in order to have the school rooms ready for the beginning term in September 1957. 1 ' In recent years lack of class room space had necessitated half day sessions for the grade school children up to the fifth grade. The additional rooms provided by the new building will alleviate this acute situation. 53 The work of the maintenance staff falls into the same classifica- tion as water in that we never miss it until we lack it. Theoretically Mr. Moon and his co-workers regulate ventilation, lighting, tempera- ture, and sanitation for the maximum comfort of the whole school. Personally the staff participates in the activities of the entire school. They hang the "Stars and Stripes" in every room, they hang the picture of President Dwight Eisenhower when requested, they take care ofthe snow in winter and the lawn in summer, they answer all MAINTENANCE emergency calls. Members of the staff come to know the student body personally. They know the latest teen idols, as Boone and Presley, from the "literature" which falls from the lockers in the halls and goes into the waste basket. They are the last to leave the school after the "rock and roll" and "chicken" dancers fto use the word dancer in its less restictive sensej have played such ttmes as "You Butterfly" and "I'm All Shook Up" for the last time. fat left, Mr. George Moon in his of ' fice in the high school I Mr. Moon's Staff x '11 S., ..

Through the years our class has added and sub- tracted in enrollment as well as in arithmetic until in the senior class after thirteen years, thirteen of the original group remained to graduate. Our class progressed through school with the usual number of triumphs and disappointments. Only once did tragedy strike in the death oflirrtmy Thamer in the seventh grade.
