Class of '28
BENEATH September's sunny skies we meet again, old com-
rads and old friends.
We came into the familiar halls scarcely grasping the real-
ization that we were Seniors, and only faintly comprehending
all that was dependent upon us. Swiftly our tasks took form.
With equal swiftness we met and performed them. Poignantly
awake to the fact that our last year as students in N. H. S. was
rapidly slipping by us we watched the football season pass,
then basketball begin. The Triangle, the Operetta, the Class
Play, the Banquet and finally Commencement came and went.
Through it all we bore ourselves with traditional dignity, but
often there crept into our minds moments of dreamy remi-
niscence of days we have spent here in N. H. S. We looked
with something almost akin to envy at the freshmen wandering
blandly, often dumbly, about the corridors. We pitied the
Sophomores in their self-suliiciency and conceit. ln the Juniors
we recognized our friends and our successors. As the year drew
to its close there came to us more poignantly, the realization of
the ties that bound us together in the class of '28. We realized
our mission and our privileges. We saw with sadness how
quickly these bonds would snap and we would go forth alone
to forge our ways through the world, and how the class of '28
would become a memory: but, seeing these things, it has been
our high purpose to make that memory of the class of '28, one
of worthiness and unfading splnedor.

S I wandered through the streets of Constantinople, I met an old wizard who asked
of me, a question in Turkish. He must have mistaken my ignorant look for
an assenting answer for he produced from his enormous garment a small urn and
a little package of black powder. I looked on amazed as he slowly lit the powder and
breathed a few indistinct words over it. The result was wonderful: a heavy smoke
issued from the urn and I immediately noticed that it was not ordinary smoke. A sweet
ordor assailed my nostrils and before I realized what was happening I found myself in
the flourishing metroplis of New York City.
A large sign, "The Irrisistable Lover". in attractive colors caught my attention. It
was advertised as one of Clifford Nelson's greatest pictures.
So our old football and basketball hero was now hailed in the movies. I could not
miss the opportunity of seeing Clifford on the screen. He played the roll perfectly. It
proved to be all that the billboard promised and more than that, for it helped me locate
another friend, Lauren Owens who was doing a comic act in the vaudeville with Thelma
I-Iuston. Lauren had outgrown his blushing but the jokes were as good as ever.
Thelma told me that Marie, once Boyer, now otherwise. was also living in New
York. I was not at all surprised to End Marie in a stately mansion, a leading lady of
society. The butler proved none other than Bob Cochran but he had learned to butle
now. I intruded at the very hour when Marie was honoring Mr. Woodman, most famous
novelist, by a dinner. Every one seemed thrilled to see Mr. Woodman better known to
us as 'iKenny" for he had continued writing novels and was now among the foremost
novelists in the world. The circle-of friends Marie had invited were not all strangers for
I recognized Paul Funkhouser, Evelyn Lane and Angelene Fox. I was invited to join
them and as the conversation continued I learned that Lillian Helberg was running for
presidency and that Vivian, with her sweet and innocent looks, was doing all she could
to help Lillian and indeed she was succeeding for men at least could not resist in spite
of their contrary political ideas. As the conversation was running along governmental lines
they also told me that Charles Armstrong was a Senator from New York State.
I had a great desire to visit some of the popular places in New York, and so my
friends took me to a famous night club. Just as we entered I heard the strains of a
beautiful waltz. When the orchestra leader turned I realized that Monsieur Mick, was
none other than "Mickey". He had acquired more dignity with years. In his orchestra
were Everett Tuttle and Theodore Ludeman doing their best to entertain the people. Our
group was evidently very welcome for the proprietor himself, Mr. Raymond Reiser, came
to our table and told the waiter to bring the best. We left the night club. and I re-
turned to my hotel.
In the morning I again hurried on my quest. I noticed that there was great excite-
ment on one street corner and my eyes followed those of other excited people. They were
gazing up at a queer contraption that indeed had me puzzled. I was told that it was
Norman Myer the present Henry Ford in a new plane of his own construction.
I was in a hurry to go, but before I left New York I visited Mr. Rafferty. president
of a mouse trap factory. Dorothy Roeder was faithfully taking dictation as I entered. She
was Bun's private Secretary. and he was very well pleased with her-although he had
heard it rumored that she was thinking of running off with some Frenchman, who was an
ochestra leader in a famous night club. I said nothing for I understood the situation.
"Bunk" was so kind as to take me to the nearest flying field in his Rolls-Royce.
Arthur Travis was driving an air taxi called "Jenny." It was with him that I crossed
the continent. On our way we stopped to visit Marguerite who was happy with her
cowboy. He had taught her to ride horseback and the rest of the things in which Marguerite
was interested . We resumed our trip and arrived in San Francisco.

I had even more surprises in the West. Here I found Fred Clabaugh a professor
in French. I was rather stunned when I learned this but Freddie whispered to me that 1
Christine Barth, now Clabaugh, prepared his lessons and that he was merely a figure head, i
for he didn't want his wife to work. I
In this vicinity Mable Corey and Evelyn Lensman had started a tea shoppe and I II
am glad to say it proved a very profitable proposition for the girls were in luxurious I
An orphanage founded by the co-operation of Mabel Armbruster. Frances Diemer i
and Iona Durham, whose hearts were too big for themselves, was one of the best in the
country. As I was taken through the building by Ruth Saneholtz I quite agreed that it .
was a wonderful establishment.
Carl and Alice Gillespie had a large fruit farm in California and were busy for the
season was at its height.
As I traveled southward I noiced that the houses, buildings and people all had a -
Spanish air about them and il was here I found Doris Babcock stunning in her Spanish ,,
garb together with another Senorita, Grace Liddle. But time was flying and there were fi
still many of my class mates to find. I again started East. On my way I received news
of the marriage of Elizabeth Huddle and Norman Lankenau. They were going to Europe Qi
on their honeymoon, sailing in the "Pontious" named after William Pontious, a large I
ship builder. I was unable to attend the wedding but nevertheless there were enough Q
thrills in the south to make up for the loss.
As I traveled from city to city and state to state I met Frances Snyder recuperating Q1
from a broken heart. Klarissa Haas, her nurse. was carefully watching over Frances. While 'I
I visited Frances she also had other sympathetic callers. Among them were Marie Meyer. g
Ida Rohrs and Anna Mengerink. I consoled Frances as best I could and told her there
were more men in the world. '
The rest of my class mates were harder to fini for they hail flown so far from their .
nest. Some indeed had gone to Europe. I reecivei a letter post marked Paris and expected -
it to be from Elizabeth, but to my surprise and delight it was from Luella Huddle, "Elly" ll
was a designer of French gowns employed in the best shoppe in Paris. She told the gen- f.
eral news of paris and some that wasn't so general. Carmen Shockey had established a .
cosmetic factory in Paris. The Parisien ladies had pronounced their approval and so I 'f
expect to find the Shockey cosmetics in America soon. ..
I soon arrived in the beautiful state of Florida. Palm Beach was crowded with .Q
people whose names were on the society list. Here was Blanche Conway enjoying the I
climate and the suitors. Although Mr. Theobald was in Florida for business and not
pleasure, "Ike" was enjoying his prosperity. selling estates lying under the deep I
blue sea. "Ike" had such a winning way about him that as a real estate agent he found 'lj
life quite comfortble. '
In Georgia. Marguerite Bressler and Eugenia Hannigan had started a dancing i'
school which was bringing them fame and wealth. The establishment had grown so i
much that Marguerite and Eugenia had hired Gleama XVagner and Genevieve Hines to keep
track of all the students. I
As I walked along a street in an altogether strange city I was admiring the stateliness "l
of a tall lady ahead of me. She turned and I with difficulty recognized Magdalena Cordes, '
who had finally found the remedy and applied it. Now she was as tall as she had always
wished to be.
In my trance I saw also my own future. This prophecy that great wealth would
be mine and, as usual, many suitors, but being quite intelligent I realized that they were
suitors for my wealth and not myself and so a happy old maid I remained.
My eyes slowly opened and the vision was passed and even the wizard had passed
away-with my purse: but to see the future of my classmates was worth more than that

Senior Class Play
On the evening of May 29 the Senior Class Play 'ACome Out Of
'I he Kit.hen" was presented in the Armory. The play was both clever
and entertaining, and redolent with moments of suspense. It was excell-
ently presented by the following cast:
Olivia Danigerfield, alias Jane Ellen 7 7 77 Dorothy Roeder
Elizabeth Daingerield, alias Araminta 7 7 Sadonna Bockleman
Mrs. Falkner 777 77777777777,777 77 777777777 7 77 77 Lillian I-Ielberg

Paul Daingerfield, alias Smithfield 7 7 Robert Cochran
Charles Daingerlield, alias Brindefbury 7 Lauren Owens
Randolph Weeks, agent of Daingeriields . 7 Kenneson Woodman
The story is that of a Virgina family of the old aristocracy, by the
name of Daingerield, who, finding themselves temporarily embarrassed,
decide to rent their magnificent home to a rich Yankee. One of the
conditions stipulates that a competent staff of white servants should be
engaged for his soourn at the stately home. This servant question presents
practically insurmountable difficulties, and one of the daughters of the
family conceives the mad-cap idea that she, her sister and their two
brothers shall act as the domestic staff for the weathly Yankee. Olivia
Daingerfield adopts the name of Jane Ellen, and elects to preside over the
destines of the kitchen. Her sister Elizabth, is appointed housemaid. Her
elder brother. Paul. is the butler, and Charley, the youngest of the group,
is armointed to the position of bootboy. When Burton Crane arrives from
the North accompanied by Mrs. Faulkner, her daughter, and Crane's
attorney. Tucker. they find the staff of servants to possess so many
methods of behavior out of the ordinary that amusing complications begin
to arise immediately. Olivia's charm and beauty impress Crane above
everything else, and the merry story continues through a maze of delight-
ful incidents until the real identity of the heroine is finally disclosed.
THE Juniors entertained the Senior Class in the parlors of the
M. E. Church May 27, 1927. The decorations were skill-
fully arranged. The colors were scarlet and gray for the Sen-
iors and purple and gold for the Juniors. Nearly two hundred
attended, including the school board. faculty, Seniors and
Juniors. The effect brought about by the program was that of
passing through an enchanted castle. Following was the pro-

IT WAS a very eventful day for us when we entered Napoleon
High school to begin our higher learning. But it was a black-
letter day for the faculty. Throughout the corridors you might
have heard Miss Moore, Miss Couch and the rest of the lady
teachers begging Jude, Bill and Gig to behave.
But in our Sophomore year we began to be something in
High School. And Oh! how we initiated those poor Freshmen.
This school year marked our entry into all school activities.
Sophomores were found in Musical, Football, Basketball and
Track activities. We are proud of our last year's showing.
Now that we are Juniors we have gone a little higher up
the ladder of sophistication. We have already accomplished
much for we have again invaded the athletic and triangular
teams. From our class has come the greatest fullback in North-
western Ohio. We have given to our Triangular success two
pianists and a vocalist. We are striving to make ours a better
class and to have people say next year at graduation that the
class of 1929 is representative of Napoleon High School.

BEHOLD how marvelously changed are the surviving Fresh-
ies of last year! Sophomores now! and aren't you proud of
us? You ought to be. Our reputation is still as enviable as it
was last year and the upper classmen are just as jealous of us as
Our chief characteristics-honesty and generosity-are
still as noticeable and impressive as when we frrst appeared in
'26. Our verdancy has entirely disappeared, and with it a few
members of our class.
We have contributed stars to football, basketball and
track, debate, oratory and music, and in addition to this, any
number of tireless workers in the Hi-Y and Friendship clubs.
We have done our best to keep up the class record and have par-
ticipated in nearly all the activities.
Our class meetings have been features. Anyone who
glories in well-conducted, serious meetings should have witness-
There are many among us who are practised in the arts
of blufiing and filibustering. Some, too, have faithfully served
on paper committees, giving their most valuable services, others
have cheerfully refinished a desk or two, and still others have
gladly given each teacher an opportunity to act as warden of
the "prison room" at least once a week.
There are some things that we have done and many things
we have left undone. These things we have done not for our
class alone but for N. H. S., in whose growing fame we are
proud to be considered a part.
This is the class of '3OI Long may its name resound in
the halls of N. H. S. for the encouragement of aspiring Fresh-
men and the despair of envious upper classmen.
For the things we have done, see above: for the things we
have left undone, refer to the faculty. '

SEPTEMBER 1927 ushered into Napoleon Hi a wonder-
fully good Freshman class. It had to be good. For two
years it had been in training for this event under the tutelage of
Mr. Roberts and Doc Kindig, Miss Mowery and Miss Fahl.
For the first two Weeks the class milled around-most
of them managing to get into the wrong room at the right time,
or the right room at the wrong time. Sometimes the class con-
tained forty Freshmen: sometimes ten. Supt. Brillhart and
Principal Secrist were patient, but a little sarcastic. Finally
they all managed to get into the right room at the right time-
if the tire was not flat.
Most of the class were formally introduced to Latin, but
so far Miss Starr is the only star, with no immediate hope of a
The Freshmen and upper classmen seem to have different
ideas of Wit and humor. For instance, the Freshmen couldn't
see anything humorus in being held under the faucet.
The cemetery was the last place a Freshman expected to
go, but some of the upper classmen arranged a sight-seeing tour
which included "See the Cemetery by Moonlight." I have
the word of the Freshmen so honored to the effect that the
moments had never seemed so numerous or so imposing as they
did on this personally conducted tour.
The Freshmen soon learned to go hatless-with neck and
ears noticeably near clean-and at length they began to fmd
their Way alone to the ice cream parlors.
. U The Freshman class is furnishing its quota in school activ-
1t1es. The traditions of the school will be upheld by them.
Just ordinary Freshmen, you say? Well, time will tell.

Wauseon at Napoleon,
THE annual Triangular contest was held February 21. The Wauseon
contestants met our own representatives in the usual place of battle-
the Jr. Hi auditorium. The program was opened by the Wauseon pianist
playing Durand's Valse in E-flat. Against this our own contestant, Mar-
jorie Patterson, played the Leibestraum No. 3 of Liszt. She played her
number in a truly pianistic manner and there was a great deal of regret
and incredulity at the surprising decision of the judge against her. The
oratory contest followed in which Lillian Helberg won a two point vic-
tory over her opponent by her splendid delivery of her oration, "The
Palladium of America." Another surprising disappointment was in store
for us in the decision rendered on the vocal contest. Nevertheless everyone
was delighted with Sadonna Bockelman's delightful singing of Arthur
Last on the program was the debate on the question, "Resolved:
that the Latin American Policy of the U. S. be upheld." Frances
Travis and Kenneson Woodman with Roger Beeman as alternate defended
the policy and easily won a unanimous decision, as well as a majority of
the points for best speakership which went to Kenneson.

Triangular Contest Napoleon at Bryan
GN THE evening of February 21, our Triangular representatives jour-
neyed to Bryan with high hopes cf acquiring the laurels which it
has been the good fortune of that city to gain for the past several years.
Their hopes were futile: for every decision of the judges was in favor of
our Bryan opponents, but nevertheless the Napoleon contestants bore
themselves in a wholly ccmmendable manner.
Elizabeth Gcttschalk our first contestant played her piano solo with
skill and feeling. Dorothy Reeder delivered her oration, "The Eternal
Symphony" with splendid eloquence. The vocal contest followed, in
which Margaret Wahl beautifully sang, "The Bells of Youth" by Oley
Speaks. The debate was the last division of the program. The question
was, "Resolved: that the Latin-American policy of the U. S. be upheld."
Angelene Fox and Frederick Albrink. with Charles Armstrong as their
alternate ably attacked the policy but failed by a slim margin to win the
decision of the judges. Frederick, however, received one point toward
best speaker-ship and he still has two years ahead of him to gain a majority
or even a unanimous award.

Notes of Appreciation
To professor Clyde Hagens, Whose sense
of the artistic and whose unsurpassed ability
as an instructor of music have, during the past
several years, produced for Napoleon High
School and the community as a Whole, a large
number of skillful musicians Who have ably
represented us in the Triangular contests and
participated in our school orchestra, We Wish
to express our sincere gratitude.
To Mrs. Carrie Belle Prentiss Who devoted
a great deal of time and energy to the prep-
aration of our vocal contestants and their
alternates for the Triangle, We Wish to ex-
press our deepest appreciation.

IN the past year the Hi-Y has tried to maintain the high
standards set up by its founders. Our Hi-Y was formed
four years ago and at present is rated as one of the best
clubs in this part of the state. We have endeavored to make
our presence felt in this vicinity and We believe we are succeed-
We Sent four representatives and Mr. Bollenbacher to
"The Older Boys Conference at Massillon" from which they
derived many beneficial things. The topics discussed at the
conference were: "Boy and Ciirl Relationships: Racial Prob-
lems: Choosing a Life Work."
We also sent eight representatives and Mr. Bollenbacher
to the "Sectional Conference" held at Findlay. We learned
many things about India, and the Way in which our Y. M. C.
A's. are helping India, from Mr. Worman, who was National
Y. M. C. A. Secretary to India. XVe saw from his report that
our "World Brotherhood Fund" is doing some real good.
Our club sponsors a "Find Yourself Campaign". This is
to help each Junior and Senior boy find out what he would
like to take up for his life Work. .
Each fall and spring We have a High School Mixer to get
all the boys together and to give them a good time.

Le Circle Francais
"THE FRENCH CLUB" has been for many years a well
established and heartily recognized organization among the
upper classmen. lts meetings. once a month, are open to all
Seniors studying French and to all Juniors who have an average
of ninety or above in that subject at the end of the first semester.
The meetings are profitable and instructive social gather-f
ings. The business and the programs are carried on almost
entirely in French. Frnech plays are presented. lnstructive
papers on modern French are read. There are games, songs and
music by the more talented members of the organization. En-
thusiasm and social "camaraderie" run high. We eat of course,
for that is customary in France as Well as in America!
Much of the success of our organization We attribute to the
diligence and enthusiasm of Miss Klotz Who has been our friend
as Well as our advisor. Our motto is "Vouloir Cest Pouvoir"
which we .ind very applicable to many things and most
especially to our struggles with "Perrichon," "Constantin" et
u It is our sincerest hope that the club may grow in size and
influence and emulate our distinguished accomplishments.

The Forensics Club
THIS organization is one of the newer activities in our school. It
formed to promote more interest ,in debate and oratory and has
already accomplished a great deal in that field.
The members instigated the Triangular Party and made it a success.
All the contestants in the Triangular contest were invited. The party
started off with a banquet. CNeedlcss to say the faculty devoured fully
their share of the food.l After this a program was given which ended
in a mock trial with Marpjorie Patterson sueing Roger Beeman for breach
of promise. Kenneson NVoodman represented the plaintiff, and Frederink
Albrink upheld the defendant. Much shocking evidence was brought to
light. We hope that the 'ATriangular Party" may become an annual
affair. It will stimulate interest in the club and in Triangle.
Although the activities of the club were by no means spectacular
they were a decided improvement over those of last year's feeble organi-
zation and it is naturally tovbe expected that next year Will see an even
grater improvement. '
Our faculty advisors were Miss Stong and Miss Peck.

The Nature Study Club
THE Nature Study Club was organized primarily for the
purpose of studying birds. No such fascinating and
healthful hobby as bird study needs a defense OT a iustification.
The pleasures it gives are too great and its benefits too broad to
demand any scientific whys and wherefores.
As a sport and a hobby bird study hold high rank. Prac-
tically everywhere--at any season-some bird life is evident.
and whether you are afield for the first time or a veteran of sev-
eral years experience you will always see something new and
different on every trip.
While one is studying birds he is bound to be in close com-
munion with "lYlother Nature." Due to this fact, it was
decided that this club should be known as the Nature Study
This organization is composed of a group of boys who
have a profound interest in the works of Nature. Some of the
boys have had previous experience along this line in connection
with the Boy Scouts. Others, although not having been as--
sociated with the scouts, have been interested in the study of
Regular meetings are held at intervals of two weeks and
other times that it seems advisable. At these meetings, topics of
interest are discussed, and arrangement for hikes are made, since
the best way to study nature is to go out in the great open
spaces where all life abounds.

The Friendship Club
THE Friendship Club of Girl Reserves was organized in Napoleon
High School in November of this school year. After officers had
been elected and the chairmen of committees appointed, a ceremonial
of initiation was given at which fifty-five members were taken in and
the officers installed. '
The club has tried to develop a program emphasizing the activities
brought out in the purpose of the -club-to stand for better health, whole-
some pleasure, good school work, a true spirit of service and a normal
friendship with Jesus Christ.
The social service committee took charge of distributing baskets to
the needy at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and later in the year, helped
the club prepare a gift-bag for the children of Mexico.
The presentation of three one-act plays in December supplied the
club with sullicient funds to help furnish a club room in the library.
Selling home-made candy at one of the basketball games and a bake sale
late in the spring will help send one of the girls to Camp Gray this
In January a large delegation from the club attended a conference
at Wauseon where they were able to get an idea of how work in other
High School clubs is carried on, and where they also contributed their
share to the program.
Under the direction of the social committee a Valentine party for
all the high school girls was given on February lOth.
Our meetings are always begun by a devotional service led by one
of the members and this is followed by the business meeting and program.
In all things we have kept in mind the slogan of the Girl Reserves, "To
find and give the best." We hope that in the years that follow the club
will grow in influence and power from the foundation that we have laid
Much of our success we owe to the enthusiasm and assistance of Miss
Klotz and Miss Starr who have been our advisors throughout the year
and who were instrumental in bringing about the organization of the

Three O'nefAct Plays
THREE one-act plays were presented by the Girl Reserve
Club on December Hfteenth and sixteenth in the Junior
High auditorium. The proceeds of the performance were used
to equip the girls' club-room in the library.
The first play, "No Men Wanted," showed how good
resolutions to keep the masculine sex at arm's length became
futile for all concerned. The two society girls were portrayed
by Betty Wolff and Margaret Wahl, and Marguerite Bost took
the part of the colored maid.
ln "Local and Long Distance", George Davis, played by
Clifford Nelson, was home from Yale with a broken leg. George
was left in charge of the house for an hour of a rainy day. The
trouble started when he pretended to be deaf to avoid impor-
tunities of neighbors calling to use the telephone. lt reached
the climax when the charming Kitty Parsons, played by Evelyn
Hahn, called, sans shoes. Others in the cast were: Mrs. Davis,
George's mother, Marguerite Holzer: and neighbors of the
Davis family, Mabel Corey, Betty Reiter, Hermenia Reiser and
In "The Knight's Mare" Martha Latimer tried to cure
her sister, Elaine, of her fondness for the time when "Knight-
hood was in Flower," and bring her back to the practical side
of life. The cast was as follows: Mrs. Latimer, Lenore Earn-
ham: Elaine and Martha, her daughters, Marie and Blanche
Conway: Belinda Hartley, their aunt, Agnes Erepple.

N. H. S. Orchestra
THE success of the Napoleon High School Orchestra is assured. The
able way in which they accompanied the operetta has done that.
We knew that there were musicians in Napoleon High but we never
realized just what they were capable of doing until Mr. Wainwright
brought Mr. Lombardi here last fall and organized our orchestra and
band. Besides playing for the Jr. and Sr. Hi. operettas they have appeared
at a Kiwanis Club luncheon and the Fair Boosters' Banquet. They will
also furnish music for the commencement exercises and the Senior Class

NEVER before has the Napoleon High School band seemed nearer to
success. There are now nearly fifty members in this organization
and the number is increasing weekly. They have many plans for the
summer which, if carried out, will convince the town people as Well as
the student body that the band is worthy of everyone's support.
They expect to make their first appearance on Decoration Day and
they will play again on Fourth of July and at the Henry County Fair.
There is to be also a Weekly concert throughout the summer. With all
this experience they should indeed make a good showing on the football
field this Fall. Much credit for the band is due to Mr. Lombardi, the

the Wolf Witch, her father offers her hand to whomsoever will slay the
Wolf Witch and break its charm. Prince Oto, the good son of the Mikado.

The Value of Athletics "
WE DEVELOP athletic teams not only for
those few who are capable of making our
varsity squads, but for everyone in our school.
Undoubtedly those who play the games Will re--
ceive the most good from them. They will learn
the great lesson that sports teach to a fuller extent
than will the rest of the students and our citizens.
Those, Who sit in the stands and Watch a hard
fighting team, learn a great many helpful lessons.
By watching every move of the players, they are
drawn closely into the spirit of the game.
Our American games are a means of a great
end. They afford a training ground for life, be-
cause our actions on the ield will invariably be
our actions in the realm of the future. These
games teach many things: Democracy, co-opera-
tion, loyalty, perseverence, honor, fairplay, con-
trol of self, and hard work. The greatest lesson
of these is that of hard Work. Henry VanDyke
says: "Heaven is blest with perfect rest, but the
blessing of earth is toil."
Review of the oeason

us and continued to do so all season.

Delta had a hard hitting crew IDIS year and they flgured on getting
revenge for our easy victory over them last year. lhey led us at the halt

played Chem the last half but we IZIIIQQ to score a touchdown by an inch.
lieiser and Lank turned in a good afternoons work against their two
big tackles. '
Fremont 14-Napoleon 7
We journeyed to Fremont and were defeated by a good eleven. Rich
played a great game . Wish we had a band as good as l4remont's but as
tor the reteree and umpire, many people agree that they have seen better.
Liberty Center 0iNapoleon 59
Liberty did not put up their usual hard battle and as a result we had
an easy afternoon. Nlutt ran wild.
Bowling Green 0--Napoleon l4
The "Oldfather Machine" was hitting on all eleven. The field was
muddy and slow but our gang worked fast. Revenge is sweet. Rich
scored the first touchdown, Mutt the second, and then our line rushed
their kicker and scored a safety. The town was ours that night.
Van Wert 0-Napoleon 45
After a week of hard work Qveryj, Van Wert was easy. Lankenau
ran 60 yds. for a touchdown. He kicked off and downed the free ball
behind their goal.
Wauseon 6--Napoleon 13
It seems as though the team was a little over-confident. We couldn't
seem to hit our stride at all. Several of our fellows were banged up from
the Bee Gee game and did not seem to like football. There is only
one thing on which everyone agrees--Wauseon was not the weak team
they were supposed to be.
Byran O--Napoleon 5 9
We warped Liberty 59-0, Liberty and Bryan tied, and then we
walked over Bryan 59-O. For once dope was O. K. The Held consisted
of 48000 square yards of a mixture of HZO and dry dirt. Every player
on our team covered himself with glory-and mud.
Thus ended the most successful football season in the history of
CAPT. PAUL FUNKHOUSER
Pauly was an able captain for one of
the most successful and well balanced
teams Napoleon has ever turned out
He was liked and admired by everyone
His yardage gaining plunges were fam-
ous. As captain he set a splendid
example for his team in training and in
Tackle-Art was one of the iron
men of our line, He was fast for his
size and when he hit, things began to
happen. He liked hard work.
CAPT.-ELECT HOWARD YOUNG
Fullback-Mutt played a stellar game
all season. He easily 'won fullback
position on the All-League team. As
Captain-Elect, Mutt has the good
wishes of everyone for a successful year.

Guard-Cliff has finished his first
and last year in football for N. H. S.
He developed into an all-around good
guard. His hobby was going down
Half Back-Rich was one of the
shining lights on the eleven. He still
has two more years of football in N. H.
S. We expect him to do great things
next year. He liked to intercept passes
and run Wide around end.
End-Lank developed into a good
end this year. Nct a team we played
this fall was able to get around our left
wingf His absence will be felt next
Quarterback-Gig is just another
Reiser but that is saying a lot for all the
Reisers make good. Gig played half-
back and end.
End-Ray came out to make a letter
in his senior year. His determination,
fighting spirit, and his long, lanky build
greatly aided him in smearing all plays
in his directon and in gaining his end.
Half-back-Stuckey was one of our
heaviest men this year. When he went
to get someone he usually succeeded.
Running interference was his specialty.
This is Mel's last year.
Tackle-Bill was an ideal tackle.
Big, quick and plenty tough Bill and
Travis were the best pair of tackles we
have had for a long time. Bill especial-
ly delighted in taking the kickoff and
in running the kick back. His straight
arm was a dangerous weapon,
Center-Bus fought long and hard to
earn the center position. He was short,
light in weight and a lighter to the last.
He greatly enjoyed going under a pile of
men to stop the player with the ball.

Review of the Season
McClure 18-Napoleon 34
The season opened with a game at McClure. The second team was
in on the opening of the struggle but were soon supplanted by the regulars.
Lankenau and Myers led among those who scored.
Delta ll-Napoleon 27
Home game, league game! Lank was high scorer.
Liberty Center 8-Napoleon 42
The Naps displayed beautiful basketbyall. Lank ran up 14 points.
Montpelier l9--Napoleon 26
Another game on our side of the league ledger. More real basketball.
Dayton Roosevelt 21-Napoleon 17
The first real "big city team" we have ever met outside of a tourna-
ment but at that, and with two regulars out, we nearly carried off point
honors. That game was a real thriller.
Bowling Green 34-Napoleon 18
The "bobcats" forced the blue and white to meet their second defeat
of the season in a grilling game. Myers was high score man for the locals.
Liberty Center 14--Napoleon 34
Liberty again and victory again, but in a rather haphazard manner.
We were obviously out of form.
Bryan 17-Napoleon 19
Some game! SOME game! And how! The hardest fought battle
of the season and one of the most thrilling in the annals of N. H. S.
basketball history. The team played splendid defense during the second
half and used the "stall" game to obvious advantage.
Wauseon 124Napoleon 34
The Naplets defeated their guests with ease, so much ease in fact that
the game proved very dull except for the advent of a certain gloriously
blatant band which strove vainly to encourage dejected red and whites.
Delta 18-Napoleon Z6
Playing on a slippery floor to which they were unaccustomed and
with Delta's center sinking baskets in uncanny fashion the Naplets piled
up an eight point lead. The game was closer than the score indicates.
Montpelier 20-Napoleon 26
Nelson's long shots were a feature of this game. It was played on a
small floor and was by no menas a walk-away.
Bowling Green 22-Napoleon Z0
The Blue and White failed in a valiant effort to gain revenge on their
B. G. opponents who won only in the last minute of play by a long shot.
Bryan 28--Napoleon 38
This much-looked-forward-to game proved an easy victory. Largest
crowd that every witnessed a B. B. game at the armory was in attendance.
Wauseon 16-Napoleon 20
Our last league game! Wauseon gave us a real battle and came very
close to surprising us with a defeat.
TOURNAMENT AT BRYAN
The proverbial tournament "jinx" got us again and we were defeated
in our first game 34 to 28, and by a team whom we had beaten twice. As
a whole. however, the season was decidedly a success and we Won again
the N. W. O, A. L. basketball trophy.
The Captain was chosen before each game.

Guard-Art was acting captain in
most of our games. He fought, and
fought hard. When we needed points
Art was there with the goods. This
is his last year.
Forward-Mickey was high point

which he has taken part. Basket ball
was no exception this year. Mutt has

Center-Rich ably filled Lank's
shoes at center. He developed into a
good player in a short time. He still
has two years to play for Napoleon.
For ward-Gig's specialty was trick-
ery. When his opponents thought that
he would surely fall, he kept his feet
and crashed through for a peep shot.
Forward--Ray came through for his
first letter. He certainly did surprise
the fans by his fine playing. He still
has two years in which to gain further
honors for himself and his school.
Center-Jim played a heads up game
for second team throughout the season.
He also did his best for the varsity
whenever they called upon him. Jim
has three more years.
Miss Green, for her friendly and
eHicient service to students and
office force, deserves the recognition
which we here gladly extend.

able aid in times of athletic dis-
tress and for his wholehearted en-
thusiasm for the N, H. S. and its
endeavors, We extend our heartiest

1927 Track Team
Our track meets of last year were not written up in last year's annual because of the
late date at which our meets were held. The team journeyed to Wauseon and easily won
first over Wauseon and Delta. The score was Ncpoleon 69.5, Wauseon 60 2-3, Delta 9.
I LEAGUE MEET
Montpelier, Bryan, VJauseon, Liberty Center, Delta and Napoleon competed in the
league track meet. It was held at the Napoleon fair grounds. Montpelier won the trophy
by a narrow margin. Napoleon was a close second. The team did very well, for this
was but their second year's work at track as a league sport. The score was Montpelier
68 1-3, Napoleon 44M. Wauseon 39, Bryan 32 1-3, Liberty Center 14 1-3, Delta 2-3.
DISTRICT MEET AT TOLEDO
Our team went to Toledo determined to win the Class B. honors. Montpelier was
equally determined. The meet soon resolved itself into a battle for points between Mont-
pelier and Napoleon. Rich broke the district record for the 440-yd. dash. Time 55.1
seconds. Lank easily took his event-the javelin. All the fellows worked hard and when
the. dust cleared we found that Montpelier led us by two points. The score was Mont-
pelier 28. Napoleon 26.
STATE MEET AT COLUMBUS
Several of the fellows with Coach Oldfather traveled to Columbus to put Napoleon
on the map. Lankenau succeeded in doing so for us. He broke the state Class B. record
for the javelin with a heave of 166 ft. 9 inches.
Fellows on the squad were Freddy Frepple, John Swearingen, Mutt Young, Rich
Meyers, Norman Lankenau, Lester Bennett, Bill Pontious, Cliff Nelson. Chuck Riley.
1928 TRACK TEAM
Napoleon 79M Montpelier 71M
We started the track season in a fine manner. Montpelier was a decided favorite,
The 100 yd. dash netted 10 or 11 points for Montpelier. We, however, evened things up
in the 120 yd. high hurdles by gaining 10 or 11 points. Our men scored 9 firsts out of
2 starts. The remaining second. third and fourth places were scored often enough for us
to win, We received a cup which we think Montpelier had originally intended for them-
Napoleon 7 0 BIYBII 5 l
Bryan constructed a cinder track this spring, trained her crowd of athletes and sent
us a challenge. We, although weaker in the running events, were much stronger in the
field events and so we easily defeated them. Stroeh of Bryan scored four firsts. Lank
Nelson, Bennett, Riley, Fahringer and the rest of our fellows soon cut down Stroeh's
winning streak, However, as a result of this day's work, we brought home another trophy
to add to our rapidly gowing collection.
1928 LEAGUE TRACK MEET
The 1928 meet, held at Bryan, proved very exciting from start to finish. Lank
was the only man on our team who placed first in an event. Add to this the fact that
we won the meet with thirteen men on our squad and with the smallest team present at
the meet and you will no doubt conclude that this was an unusual day.
THE OBLIGATIONS TO POSTERITY i
The district and state track meets of this year are to take place at such a late date that
we are unable to include the results in this year's annual. They will no doubt be found in
the noble production of the class of '29.

BASEBALL has never succeeded in becoming a major sport in the N.
H. S. nor even an important minor one. Yet, it has many enthusi-
asts .and bids fair to become popular, and even to hold a place of recogni-
tion on our sports schedule if the present interest continues. The Hi-Y is
takfngfthe lead this.. year. They have organized a team which looks quite
promising. Tihe rfriembers of this team have been recruited from the
student body as a whole as well as from the club, and it is practically a
high school team. "Mickey" Myers is pitcher with Nelson substituting
for him. Little-but-mighty "Bus" Perry is catching. "Mutt" Young is
at first, "Art" Travis at second and "Grandma" Sucher in the "hot
corner." Nelson takes everything that comes between second and third.
Fred Claybaugh is playing L. F.. "Les" Bennet C. F., and "Wally"
Meade R. F.
This team made an excursion to Wauseon a short time ago where
they were to meet that town's high school team. They found the field
in terrible condition due to a recent rain but they tried to play anyhow
and succeeded in slipping through four muddy innings before more rain
forced them to stop. They have scheduled another game with this same
team for May 23rd, and they sincerely hope that it will come to a more
Another innovation of interest is the Inter-Class Indoor Baseball
League which is being organized for both the boys and girls of the high
school and of Junior high. Three diamonds are being laid out on the
football field and we are looking forward to some lively contests and a
great deal of interest.

Dependable Lumber is essen-

value of Lumber depends upon
its grade, its manufacture, its
suitability as to wood for cer-

possible to know the presence

the lumber itself. To safeguard
the investment of ourselves and
our many customers we handle
only products that are known
for their dependability. If you
