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

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,

ments and good times and bad, but now that the junior year is over it has
been the happiest year of them all.

'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
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 Pirateer is a mimeographed paper put out once a week by the
students. 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.

The Student Librarians are responsible for the care and distribution of the books during the school day.
Our library contains dictionaries, encyclopedia sets, atlases, rnaps, as well as fiction for leisure reading.
The student librarians are affiliated with SLAAM, an organization of student librarians in Michigan. This

The FTA is a newly formed club in our school. 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.

NAPOLEON HIGH SCHOOL BAND
During the fall the band participated in many affairs, among them the Michigan
State Fair held in Detroit and Band Day at the University of Michigan. 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

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

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.

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.

The motion picture projectionists of Napoleon High School are high
school boys whose purpose is to serve the best interests of the school by
caring for the motion picture equipment, setting up the equipment and
operating the projector at regular scheduled showings. They have the
responsibility of showing pictures in the elementary grades and in
high school classes. The boys are often called to operate the projector
for local organizations in Napoleon.

THE VARSITY FOOTBALL RECORD
We concluded a brilliant string of eighteen straight wins, spanning three years and
nineteen games, undefeated, before tasting defeat by a good Grass Lake team. That
record follows: Our "54" season: C8 -0-OJ: "55" season Q8-0-OJ: "56" season: f4-3-lj.
These forty-seven boys were primarily responsible for that undefeated string in 54-55,
and the first two games in 56. The 54 Seniors are as follows: Gerald Brown-Honorable
Mention, Jim Franklin-All County, Don Green, Bob Hammond-Honorable Mention,
Harvey Henning-All County, Don Hoyt-Honorable Mention, Duane Iverson-All County,
Delbert Parkinson-All County, Kaye Phillips, Paul Randolph.
The 55 Seniors are as follows: Keith Brown fnot a senior, but age limited competi-

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! ! !!

The Napoleon Reserves in basketball turned in a perfect season
16-0. This is the first perfect season in the schoo1's history for the
reserves. Only St. Johns and East Jackson gave us much trouble.
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.
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

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.

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.
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.
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
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.

Teachers at the Napoleon Schools occasionally rub their eyes as they daughters of the school superintendent, Mr. John Kingdon and Mrs.
gaze at some of the students, wondering if they are seeing double. Kingdon.

On September 6, 1944 Mrs. Oliver Byam started the

Through the years our class has added and sub-

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.
