In presenting this book to the students of
Napoleon High School, it has been our endeavor to
prepare an annual that would, from cover to cover,
contain a colorful pictorial as well as practical slant
on the social and curricular activities of the school.
It is with this view in mind that the Seniors of
'32 offer the "Depression Buckeyem, the 16th, to you
for your approval.
May it in the future, recall memories of the
past as it brings to mind the accomplishments of the
1932, f BUCKEYE
O you, Mr. Willis R. Arn, do we,
the Senior Class of l932, respect-
fully dedicate this sixteenth edi-
tion of the Buckeye.
This humble expression of our ap-
preciation is founded on your untiring
efforts and practicable endeavors to in-
spire us to higher ideals. You have not
only helped us to increase our scope of
knowledge but through the inspiration
of your impressive personality have
spurred us to attain more noble things.

The men on the board of education this year, form a group which truly
can be termed a representative cross-section of Napoleon citizenry.
Represented on the school board are: a grocer, a doctor, a banker, a book-
keeper and an engineer. The board holds regular meetings every two Weeks on
Monday, at which time matters pertaining to school problems and finances are
discussed and acted upon.
Napoleon is to be congratulated upon the Hne character of the men she
has placed upon her board of education. Not only outstanding in character,
but sincerely interested in the Welfare of our schools, these men have Worked
unceasingly toward the betterment of the school system. Through all their
efforts, a splendid spirit of co-operation has been manifested, a trait so vital to
the succses of this organization.
We congratulate them upon their accomplishments, and express a hope that
they may be as eflicient in the future as they have been in the past.

Crawfords Life Insurance, which was a..ve.t.sed on the neat little placard in the cab. My hope

sign just above the level of my eyes. "Me Bury You Right-Weschels Undertaking Establish-
On reaching the High School, I went into the office. Was there ever a time when Miss
Creen hadn't heard some gossip?
"What do you know?" I asked.
For reply she pushed a newspaper toward me, on the front page of which was the
staring headline: "Suicide Foiled, Vernon Brubaker Becomes Tired of Life". It seems that
"Vernie", yielding to the popular craze, had decided that the world held little for him. He
had cranked his Ford for three consecutive hours, trying to induce Serge Krause's self-starter to
work, and growing discouraged, had given up the struggle. He was saved by Eugene Speith.
who then willingly shoved him all the way home. , '
Turning to the sporting page, I saw that "Dick" Ciilson had signed a contract in Holly-
wood, with motion picture producers. He was to appear in a football film entitled i'Smash
and Carry". "Dick" was to provide the smash, and the test of the old N. H. S. team of '32
was to do the rest of the work. The supporting cast included such notables of nlmdom as Marie
Metz, Betty Fahringer, Hermenia Hahn and Hildegardc Bockelman,
"Certainly", I thought, "the boys ought to be happy in a bunch like that."
Hastily I leafed over the paper in search of familiar names. The society column an-
nounced that Marjorie Sloan was sailing on the "Napoleonic" for London, where she was
to give her debut with her violin, and that Violet Owens had undertaken the job of scrubbing
the statues in Westminister Abbey.
No more news of interest could be found in the paper, so I started out for a bit
of fresh air.
The billboards claimed my attention, especially one which announced "Lowry and
Lymangrovers Circus", in town that very day, A girl in ballet costume, suspiciously like
Cyrilla Westrick, walked a tight rope across the face of the poster, and a human bean pole,
Don Allen, was scubbing a giraffe's tootli with a prophylactic tooth brush.
Seeing the advertisements made me want to see the circus itself, and boarding a bus.
operated by Alvin Sonnenberg. I traveled direct to the circus lot,
The circus grounds were thronged with people, After tripping over a tent peg which
Gerald Hemenway had just driven down, I made my way toward the side shows, having suc-
cessfully evaded Laurena and Dorothy Greenler selling red baloons, and narrowly escaping a
collision with "Butch, Harms, who was leading a moth-eatzn elephant to a water trough. Be-
ing rudely pushed from one exhibit to another, I got faint glances of the following:
First, I climbed a stairway and looked into a canvas inclosed space, to see before me a
snake charmer amidst dozens of snakes. And then to see that the charmer herself, was none
other than an old classmate. Eloise Higgins. But why the crowd around the next exhibit? As
I got nearer, I saw that it was only an advertisement, but as I still wondered at the large gath-
ering, I walked over and saw a girl advertising "Winx ', the well known eyelash and eyebrow
beautifier. To my great surprise, it was none other than June Hurd, sweeping long. darl enecl
lashes at the young men of the crowd, holding them spellboundl
I was getting news of my classmates all right, but what had become of Ruth Heistand
was still an unsolved mystery. I would continue to look for her: that seemed the only thing
to do, Suddenly I felt hungry.
"Hot-Dawgs! Nickel? Five cents! Come and have a Hot-dawglu, bawled Carl Harrison
from a little white cart, as I passed by. I would stop and have one of the famous "Kike's"
Having satisfied my appetite, I proceeded to the big-top. At one side of the entrance
the band was blaring away at the latest jazz arrangement of "Stand Up and Cheer", led by the
famous Blaine Penny. .Iust as I was entering the tent, I noticed a messenger boy eyeing the

Just my luck to have to leave a good showi All the busses were going to the circus instead
of downtown, but I was lucky enough to get a lift witn Delbert I-lerge. As we rode down-
town, Delbert talked of this and that, while 1 kept my eyes open for familiar faces. Some of
the names on the shops drew my attention: and as I saw the sign A'Eruth, Fruth and Eruthn
on the window of a music shop, I looked in and saw Ray Bennett singing gustily, accompanied
by Marguerite Lombardi, who was vigorously playing the piano.
Behind the counters the clerks were selling the latest song hits-and then I noticed that
the clerks were Mable, Marjorie and Robert Iiruth. the owners of the shop.
As we proceeded on our way, we passed a large apartment just in time to see "Whitey"
Wagner rush down the steps and slide around the corner as dishes, pillows, and pictures flew
past where his head had just been. Well-theres only one answer to that. I see "Whitey"
and Mary Jane are still at it-after all these years! I
At the hotel door, pompously arrayed as a porter, stood Richard Spitler. He eyed me
suspiciously and allowed me to pass only after I had proven my good intentions to the owners
of Hotel Panning-Dorothy and Alvin.
Josephine Liddle, the clerk at the desk, told me the number of Maude Dorothy's room.
and Mildred Chrobarger, the elevator girl, whizzed me up to the proper floor.
"Gee", exclaimed Maude Dorothy. "Why didn't you come sooner?" Ruth just left
for Sampson's Corners. She was wearing a red dress, and green hat with a purple feather, if
that will help you any to identify her."
"Me for Sampson's Cornersuf was all I said, and I dashed for the street. Boarding a
street car, I had another furious ride to the station. Why were Napoleon graduates such terrible
drivers? Martin Becker the motorman, who had lost his job of operating a speedway, aimed
to give his passengers a thrill, and he surely succeeded! Y I
"Train West for Sampson's Corners", cried the conductor, as I leaped on the moving
train. It seemed I no sooner got nicely settled than it was time to get off again. On the plat-
form I collided with Delmar Samlow, the chief-of-police of Sampson's Corners.
"I-Iellow, Chief," I said. "I'm looking for Ruth Heistand. Where do you suppose
I'd be likely to find her?"
"I'll tell you," he replied, "There's a big doin's down at the Happy Hours this even-
in', and I'll bet Ruth will be there. Wayne Light is being initiated as Grand Master. The
Goofy Goofs, and the whole town will turn out." X
I hurried to the Happy Hours but saw the "No Loafing In Booths" signs, and decided
she coudn't be in one of these, but I couldn't safely say that she was not somewhere in this
great crowd. I would wait! I was soon invited to have lunch with Martha Precht, Evelyn
Miller and Leona Eunchion. I marveled that all was prepared by Dewey Bassett, the
famous chef, and his assistants. Elsie Baden and Viola Beck. While sitting there, I noticed that
after all the worries they had caused each other's old A'flames" in school, Marjorie Reichert and
"Pete" Schultz had decided to spend the rest of their lives together in wedded bliss. Something

were a violin solo played by Vera Franz and a talk by Eleanor Baker on "Supporting the New
Members", this in honor of Wayne Light, the new Grand Master, for home town men are
really better in the long run. She claimed she was speaking from experience after many years
of interest thrown away in Dehance.
We talked of old times and I found out that Lois Niebel had given up school teaching
to marry an old classmate of ours, who had left us in our Junior year. What lasting love! l

Dolly Kagay and Edith Roddy--and with them. no one else but the object of my search-
Ruth I-Ieistand-all ready to be initiated into the club.
In my excitement I called out, "Why Ruth, where on earth have you been?" And I
should have rushed up to her, spoiling all the ceremony, if Doris Rhody and Margaret Hoffman
had not held me back. I refused to be quiet until they promised to keep an eye on her.
When the initiation was all over, I made my way to Ruth.
A'What did you disappear for?', I asked.
"That was only one of my initiation stunts". said Ruth, "I had to. you know before
I could join this club."
I saw by my little black notebook that I had accounted for nearly all of my classmates.
A'I'll help you Hnd the few remaining ones," said Loretta Panning. "Of course you've
heard that Zaida Bressler is living happily in Delta, Ohio, and Helene Speiser is still in Na-

I started off with Ruth, as I wanted to get to Skeetsbergh that very evening. As we
started hurriedly across the street we were almost knocked oveg by a police car which, carrie scream-

Senior Class Activities
flike to have
I thought of
all this wild
Several years ago, 1928 to be exact, when the present Senior Class had
just graduated from Junior High Cand into high heels and long pantsj we
wondered what "IT" was all about. Now we know, but what price knowl-
edge! It covers a lot of territory. For instance, "It" includes the educating
of the dear little ducklings of the Freshmen class, the receding of Sophomore
r1oses from high altitudes, that gradual growing up feeling of the Junior year
and Hnally the dignity of the Senior year,
We may point with pride to the records we have made in all the phases
of scholastic and extra-curricular activities. In the band and orchestra several
Seniors have been lauded on their superior talents: in Triangular we have con-
tributed some very outstanding competitors: in club work we have gained rec-
ognition for our services: in scholastic records we have not lagged behind: a
certain Senior has hitched his wagon to a star in the athletic field and has won
letters in nearly every sport. These and many others are our accomplishments.
We ask nothing but to be remembered for the progress we made and the in-
Huence we had upon under-classmen. We shall continue to serve not as a class
but individually, each working upon the foundation which he built during his
high school career.

On the evening of May 21, 1931 the Juniors entertained the Seniors at
the annual Junior-Senior Reception.
At 6:30 o'clock a delicious dinner was served at the Lutheran Parish
House, Decorations were in green and white, the Senior's class colors. The
room had the effect of an out-door garden with its ferns, palms and flowers.
i After the dinner a short program was given as follows:
R l. Root Rambles ---- Richard Ciilson
, 2. Trunk Talks ----- Gladden Reiter
l 3. Branch Barks - - Mrs. Paul Chiles
, 4. Buds Burst Into Song Marguerite Lombardi
l 5. Chatter ----- Ruth Heistand
I 6. Melody ------ Marjorie Sloan
l Later in the evening dancing was enjoyed at Wayne Park. Music for the
l occasion was furnished by the "Ohioans". The pavilion was decorated in
pink and orchid, the Junior class colors. Lattice work, roses, and vines gave it
, a pleasing appearance. A solid blue ceiling with a large moon also added to
i the eHfect.
At 12:00 o'clock dancing ceased, an evening of pleasure and joy had come
, to an end. The banquet was a success, thanks to the class of '32.
Senior Class Play
l The Seniors gave their annual presentation on Monday, May l6th, at
i the Lutheran Parish House. The play was entitled 'AC1eorge in a Jam". The

The head of the 'iBuckeye" staff has given me the extreme pleasure
of writing the history and activities of the Junior Class. I say extreme
pleasure because the Junior Class is practically the only class which can
boast of such accomplishments. Of course, you know that this record
is known to the four corners of the earth.
If you should look through the files of Napoleon High School,
you would find that the class of '33 has taken active and important parts
in music, oratory, debate, basketball, football, golf and tennis. The
clubs of N. H. S. fairly teem with Juniors holding responsible positions.
One must remember that it was the Juniors of '33 that took the class
tournament from the greedy hands of their worthy opponents by a large
score. This has not, in my recollection, ever been accomplished before.
The Junior Class boast of an unusually large athletic output. In
fact, the majority of the varsity basketball team is composed of Juniors.
The responsible positions on the football team will, no doubt be filled
with these husky Juniors in the future.
Up to this time, I have told only of the athletic side of our Junior
Class. Now I ask any class to equal our record in Triangular. None of
the Juniors taking part in the triangular this year met with defeat.
In scholastic ability, the Junior Class ranks with the cutstanding
classes that have gone before them.
As the returns of the class track-meet and baseball games have not
yet been received, I am unable to score here their possibly glorious triumph.
I look forward to it though, knowing that the Junior Class will again

One year ago the class of 'i34" entered the corridors of Napoleon
High School as green as any other Freshmen class but minus the usual
raspberries of the sophisticated upper classmen-thanks to our ever loving
and considerate Faculty who realize the sensitiveness of our natures.
A number of students from the class of H34" took part in this year's
Triangular contest and in the remainder of our high school career will
continue to be the nucleus of the teams. We contributed generously to the
gridiron, having many lettermen and reserves. Many members of our
class belong to the band and take an active part in such outstanding clubs
as the Hi-Y and G. R. clubs.
It is our aim to uphold these laurels in the future and gain many
others in addition so that We, the class of "34", may compare favorably
with other classes.

Napoleon High School has been blessed this year with an unusually
large group of energetic Freshmen, who are destined to carry on the col-
ors and to fight for old Napoleon in future years.
On September 12, 1931, Freshmen Day, one hundred and nine
Freshmen-to-be, met together for the first time, chose their course of study
and met their new teachers. School was declared formally open on Sep-
tember 15, and contrary to all past performances, the Freshmen went to
their classes without making the usual mistakes of going into the wrong
room. ln fact one Freshman group went into a room filled with Sopho-
mores fnot the assemblyl who of course enjoyed unbounded mirth there-
from. But a few minutes later they, the haughty Sophomores, were noti-
Hed that they were in the wrong place. Tsk! Tskl
The Freshmen showed their true school spirit by placing representa-
tives in nearly every possible outside activity. We placed members in the
Triangular, Glee Club, Football, Basketball, Track, Quartet, Band, Orch-
estra and other activities.
We have also proved that we held some great voices for the cheering
Next year we will come back as Sophomores-We will help more
than this year, to carry Napoleon's colors onward.
An Apology to Freshmen Class Officers
Since the Freshmen class elections were held so late, we were unable to
get snapshots of the elected officers. -The Editors.
Extra-curricular activities are those legitimate activities not provided for in
the curriculum. They will vary in different schools.
Extra-curricular activities are justifiable in two respects. First, they odfer
the school its best opportunities to help pupils do certain desirable things that
they would do anyway-viz., take their places as members of social units, and
exercise, each according to his abilities, those qualities of leadership, initiative,
cooperation, and intelligent obedience, all fundamental in society.
Second, they offer a ready channel through which the school may utilize
the spontaneous interests and activities of the adolescent and through these lead
to higher types of activities and make them both desired and possible of attain-
Let it be clearly understood that extra-curricular activities are not prepar-
ing the boys and girls merely to live after a while. We must not think of the
child-period as a probationary period for life later on. Our boys and girls must
live now. This does not mean that they live merely now, but rather that they
are so to live now that they will live well later on. Extra-curricular activities
are not to be considered as a mere preparation for life. They are life.

A Tribute To Mike Lomdardi
"Render unto Caesar,
The things that are Caesars"
Truly no individual has rendered to one locality so much individualism
and outstanding popularity to that locality, as has Mr. M. Lombardi, pro-
fessor of instrumental music in Napoleon High School.
Through his complete understanding of boys and girls, and his vast re-
sourcefulness in managing young people, always ready and willing to sacrifice
his time in aiding their progress in music, his friendly nature and winning per-
sonality, coupled with his great musical ability and knowledge of instruments,
he has created a school band far superior to those of larger and finer institutions,
a band which has placed not only the high school but the town and county on
the musical map.
Under his careful and forceful guidance and encouragement, he has carved
out of green material a seasoned and stately organization. Even though a master
musician and natural leader, he could not have gained this end, had he not en-
joyed the love and respect of each member of his band and the complete confi-
dence of the parents and school authorities.
"Great oaks from little acorns rise"
Thus to HlVlilce" do we of the band pay tribute-our friend and instructor
when we say-
A great director!

ll932, - BlUCKlEYEte
Father time has once again turned his back on a very eventful school year.
Ere we leave this familiar routine we are constantly reminded of our strug-
gles and achievements, and in a small way realize the untiring efforts of our
most patient and beloved Band Master. Little did we realize the talents lying
dormant, and we feel a certain amount of pride when we recall a victory won in
every contest entered. May honor rest where honor is due, on our leader, Mike
The fountain for Mike Lombardi's success began several years ago, first
studying at the St. Pietro-Mayelo, academy of music in Naples, Italy He came
to this country with Creatore's Band with whom he remained two years, then
joining the Parrullo Band for two years, after which he served three years as
director with Lombardie's Italian Band at Wakshow Beach, Wisconsin. Then
for two years he was director of Horlick's Band. Another two years he direct-
ed the Russian Royal Band in Pennsylvania and in 1920 he joined Wain-
wright's organizations and acted for 8 years as director of music at Fostoria, G.
Pour years ago he came to Napoleon to organize our own ilustrious band,
-the first year sending eighteen local boys to play with the 300 piece band at
the Ohio State Fair. Besides this, the band furnished music for our own county
fair each year, and gave numerous free concerts. We were asked to participate
in the dedication of Wauseon's new hospital which Governor Cooper attended,
he. being so pleased with the band's performance that he extended an invitation
to play in Columbus, at the State Fair and also at his home, which we gladly
accepted, Our band also enjoyed the distinction of broadcasting from Stations
WOWO, Ft. Wayne C3 different occasionsj WSPD Toledo, WJR Detroit and
also were guests of the Toledo Blade at the Auto Show. Many a football and
basketball game has received inspiration and encouragement from music by the
Napoleon High School Band.
But all good things must come to an end and many Seniors regret deeply
the termination of their high school years. There's an old saying "It's an ill
wind that blows no one some good and their loss will be the incoming mem-

Tlte Future in Music
Rag-time jazz is dead! Rapidly during the past few years the time tested
principles of classical music have been introduced into the playing of dance or-
chestras: and this indicates most definitely that the trend of popular favor is
away from the realm of clumsy rythm pounding and into the domain of beau-
tifully presented melodies supported with rich counterpoint and harmony.
The musician of the future, therefore, must be well trained to perform
with skilled technique, to understand the composition he seeks to interpret. Such
training can be acquired only at the cost of sincere aspiration and willingness to
sacrifice himself to his art. He must seek the best teachers and attend the best
Conservatories. Hard work and patience can never be dispensed with.
But when his training is complete a vista of attractive opportunities will
open before him in such breadth as to satisfy his vanest ambition! T The sym-
phony orchesrta . . . the radio . . . the theatre orchestra, 'which is rapidly com-
ing again into its own . . . and the opera all offer him not only pleasant work
but an enviable salary.
And above all this, the good musician has the knowledge that he speaks
a universal language. His minor chord progressions speak sorrow in any land:
his dashing allegros strike joyous courage into hearts in any climate.
Of all professionals the young musician can look forward to the happiest
future if he will strive for excellence.

Napoloen High School gained signal recognition this year at the high
school musicians' contest held at Oberlin, May 7th. Fritz Evers took first place
in the Xylophone division of the contest, winning the state championship. Jerry
Belknap was one of three who tied for second place in the clarinet entries, and
Donald DeTray placed fourth among the corner contestants. Thus all three
Napoleon's entries gained honors: and they were among two hundred young
musicians who entered the contest.
Prof. M. Lombardi went with the trio to Oberlin. The accompaniments
were played by J. H. Secrist,

Judging from the appellatoin, one would guess it was an organization for
the promotion of happiness, laughter and song. Rightof And sometimes
there's a lot of inconsequental chatter of this and that interspersed. However
the aim of the club is to provide exercise of the vocal chords of those who are
itching to sing. We suspect that a lot of them yodel during their ritual of
bathing, too, But that's nothing her enor there. The fact remains that the
membership is up in the i-ies, and includes all four classes. You see, we
haven't been a bit persnickity about welcoming new members. And speaking
of new members, we'd bet a postage stamp that the new members who bring out
the bass and tenor brought a renewal of spirit among the fairer members. That
accounts for the gusto and vivacity in their singing,
As to programs, cantatas and concerts, we are unable to comment. The
Glee Club chapel program is of course, in the annual events. Besides this, the
club traveled miles and miles for the sake of performing before the Liberty Cenf
ter High School audience. We presume the programs were very acceptable to
the gracious audience. T
We speak with comrnendability of the perseverant and patient director,
Mr. Secrist, without whom the club would be utterly impossible. We extend
our appreciation to the pianists, Miss Miller and Rosella Eckber for their ser-
vices in the past year.

talk, is to give the fans a break, for l. James Gregg. honorable president of the
Hi-Y organization, now turn the "mike" over to my endeavoring Secretary, D.
Bassett, who has a worth while message for you.
In the past year the Napoleon Bonaparte Hi-Y club has endeavored to carry
out a program inspiring and beneficial to its members. lt has striven "To
create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community, high stand-
ards of Christian Character."
Through the untiring efforts of the members, sufhcient money was earned
to make the year a financial success. The year was begun with a Maumee Valley
Conference held at Napoleon. which nearly ZOO fellows attended. Six dele-
gates and a leader were sent to conference, where the local representatives received
worthwhile inspiration from every session. The annual Hi-Y mixer for all the
fellows in the high school proved to be an enjoyable and proitable affair.
One of the outstanding events of the year was a party given to the Hi-Y by
the Girl Reserves. Contrary to tradition, dancing was part of the programme.
The Hi-Y was host at a banquet given in honor of Napoleon's High School
Basketball Team, the Northwestern Ohio Athletic Association. The Exchange
Club attended and W. S. Chambers of the state Y. M. C. A. staH was the
main speaker of the evening.
A large delegation represented the Napoleon Club at the Northwestern
Ohio Training Conference held at Bryan. Another outstanding event during
the year was the joint meeting with Bowling Green in that city. A similar
meeting was held with Defiance at Napoleon. Meetings of this type should be
a great step towards better sportsmanship and friendliness between schools. A
report of the discussion on the "Ideal Girl" led by Professor Secrist was sent to
the Girl Reserves. Three delegates are to represent our club at Camp Nelson
Dodd this summer. The year was terminated by an outdoor meeting and elec-
tion of oiiicers for the ensuing year.
I will now turn the page over to Miss Marjorie Sloan, president of the Girl
Reserves and guest announcer on this occasion.

The Masque and Foil hour, brought to you through the courtesy of the
A'Depression Buckeye Broadcasting Co." At this time ladies nad gentlemen, we
shall give you a brief review of the real purpose of the organization of Masque
and Foil. Seniors, taking public speaking, are eligible for this club, whose chief
purpose is to further interest in dramatics and to better one's speaking abilities.
The club, earlier in the season gave two one-act plays, namely "Just
'Vomenf' and A'The Rector."
Meetings are held once a month at the homes of the members. These
meetings are conducted in Parliamentary Procedure. Business is taken care of
Iirst, then a social time is enjoyed, when members are requested to give short
plays, readings or anything to test their speaking and dramatic powers. A de-
licious lunch is always served, which concludes the meetings.
lf any further information be desired send a stamped, self-addressed enve-
lope to Miss Edwards, instructor in this marvelous club. I thank you and good
bye until next year. This is A'lVlike" Reichert saying farewell until l933.

officers of the Latin Club. The program was opened by the singing of
old Latin hymns and folk songs, after which portions from an old Roman
scroll were read. The latter part of the program consisted of a lecture on
the Aenoid, a report on the life of Virgil. and a very interesting talk con-
cerning the importance of Latin in our life and language today. The club

Varsity Football Review
I used to play football. Guess I'll go over to the lot and show the boys
how it's done. Watch me tackle that big bully. Socks! Now I lay me down
to sleep. Cuckoo? All I can see is football players. There's the 1931 team-
quite a heavy bunch but too many green ones. There's Coach Adams and
Ort also. Boy, how they're making them sweat.
The squad's off to Findlay! Man, what a bus they have. Findlay sure
has a grand field. What's the matter Napoleon? I3indlay's shoving you all
over the lot. Whitey certainly is tearing things up. He doesnt get much
help although the rest are trying. The game is over, 62 to O. It could have
been lots worse.
The school set up a steak dinner for the team after the game.
The coaches certainly are drilling them this week after that defeat. The
boys have learned a lot but at what a price! Their next battle is with Perrys-
Here they come in their gold jerseys. Gosh, they look big! The band
is out again. It's a big help. It was the one that still showed pep after the Find-
lay game. There goes the whistle and the teams are off? These are more even-
ly matched. Napoleon just can't place that pig skin over the line. Theres the
gun. That's all, 12 to O. Well, anyway they didn't put any extra points over
after the touchdowns.
The next game is at Montpelier--the first league game. I see they've rented
the same bus again. The squad has to take a little stroll before getting to the
field. lVlontpelier's Held has enough hazards for a golf course.
There they go into their huddles and clinches. It looks pretty good for
both sides but Napoleon just cannot score. Montpelier got only 6 points but
that was enough.
There's that "bridge out" again on route 34. The old crate can't make
the grade on the detour. Everybody out and shove. Come on Gilson and
Raush. that means you too. In the fifth or sixth attempt she makes it and the
journey is resumed. Napoleon is reached and then for the meal! The school
surely knows how to set 'em up.
There's plenty of drill this week. Defiance is next. They're good and
think Napoleon will be pie to them. We'll see once.
Man, what a game! I guess they're showing Defiance, Napoleon has a
real eleven man team today. Defiance has one touchdown already and the game
is about over. They have Napoleon in a tough place. There, the Naps try a
pass. They didn't get it off. That's two more points for Defiance and the
game is over. That's too bad but they have a better impression of us now.
The Defiance football squad brought much fame and glory to its school
today but the rest of the student body of Denance certainly did not uphold the
name of their school. The credit for the fact that we ourselves haven't disgraced
our school by improper conduct and poor sportsmanship belongs to Mr. Secrist,
and to him we owe our thanks.
Here comes Liberty. Napoleon just has to beat them. The squad hasnlt
scored yet and this ought to be a good chance. It doesn't look that way:
Liberty gets the first touchdown but no extra point. Now Napoleon is threat-
ening. Therels a pass to Bill Cramer, he catches it. gets around their defense and
is over. Napoleon's first score and are the stands only yelling! The line holds
Liberty back and Whitey puts over a nice one for an extra point. The Blue
and White is ahead. There's some cheering going on now. The crowd is wild!
Maybe the squad doesn't feel good? As they go back to line up for the kick
they receive a great hand from the stands. What's the matter with them? Lib-
erty is pushing them back now. There's another touchdown and an extra point.
It's just about the end of the game and they're scraping in midlield. There goes
Helios 1932 f BUCKl3Y1Ee1l e
the l,iberty ball carrier right through Napo1eon's line and secondary, down the
Held for a touchdown and they put over the extra point. The game is over,
20 to 7.
The morale of the team is slipping: those 7 points helped it some but Mr.
Brillhart still thinks it could be improved. That was a fine speech he gave
in the dressing room and I believe it'll help.
We're waiting for the Bowling Green game to start. Shel is supposed to be
their motto. Whitey, Upp and Boyd are out of the lineup today. This game
is going bad for Napoleon too. Bowling Green hogs it all, gets 19 points and
c1oesn't let Napoleon have any.
Now for a week and a half of practice and then Wauseon comes over here.
That's going to be "N" men day so the squad will do its best.
The flag is being raised before the game in observance of Armistice day.
The band is playing the "Star Spangled Banner," That's over and the game
is started. Come on Napoleon, Wauseon is making a track meet of this. Three
touchdowns in the first quarter and none for Napolecn. Almost the whole
regular line-up is in now. Things seem to be going better for the Blue and
vbbwf f.nima' 1'-:..v .za -afue!nu-'F-'i'4f-4ffBf"?sT" ,-L...Y .L"" 4 offs' A-212 rw as
Vx7hite. They're marching right down the field. Shartzer finishes it up by carry-
ing it over the line. Whitey puts over the extra point so that Napoleon still
has a 100 per cent on those. lt's too late though to catch up. Wauseon win:
over N. H, S. for the first time since 1924. That was the Seniors' last game on
Loose Field and the toughest one to lose since Findlay.
The squad is off to Hudson today. They have the same bus but a dif-
ferent driver. Hudson hasn't won a game yet so they haven't anything over
on Napoleon. Two years ago when the schools played, neither team had lost
Q1 game. The Blue and White beat them then and they'l1 do it again. They're
playing on the municipal thistle patch and poultry yard. From start to linish
the game belongs to Napoleon. They pile up a score of 33 and shut out Hud-
son. The team broke its 100 per cent record of scoring the point after touch-
down. lt must be in the bus driver,
He's back again for the Bryan game on Thanksgiving day. Today's the
nrst time in 6 years that there is good football weather. Pony and Ep Durham
are out of the line-up because of injuries but they're along to furnish pep. There
if 'l93.'Z,fBlUCKlEYlEltn L
are a few more supporters here than at Hudson. Bryan is expected to walk all
over Napoleon but the team from N. H. S. knows that Pony and Ep are watcha
ing them so it's fight? The first half ends O-O with both sides still going strong.
This is a great day for the seniors. It's their last high school game and
the squad is handing the league fans the greatest surprise of the season. Why
not? There's a turkey waiting for them at Napoleon and they want to earn it.
The second half is going good for Napoleon. They're pushing Bryan
back. Bryan is in dangerous territory and they're going to punt. It's blocked
by Upp, the center and he carries it over for a touchdownl Bob Reiser thinks
itls Mart and almost smothers him with affections. Now Bryan starts their
aerial attack but it's useless. Napoleon has determined to win and they're doing
it. The game ends 7-0, the first and only league victory for the Blue and White.
And did the boys go after that turkey! The menu also included potatoes,
cake, sauce and what not. It filled the table pretty well and the squad also.
This is the Friday during chapel hour that the football letters are awarded.
Mr. Secrist is all smiles because he says it is one of his greatest pleasures. Fif-
teen varsity "N's" are awarded. To the Seniors: John Wagner, Albert Dur-
ham, Ronald Upp, Otis Wesche and Theodore Haase. Juniors: Orville Bennett,
Burdette Rausch, Eugene Pontious, Robert Reister and Dona-ld Shartzer.
Sophomores: William Cramer, George Dick, Fred Parsels, and Red Boyd.
Freshmen: Russell Babcock.
All that I can see yet is two stars. One for Pony and one for Whitey.
Pony was given credit for doing the best playing on the team and he surely
deserved it. He set many fine examples for the rest of the line. His name has
been engraved on the D. C. Brown trophy. Here's hoping he repeats it.
Whitey was chosen honorary captain by his fellow lettermen. This means.
that by the opinion of those who played with him, that he was the best leader
and an outstanding player. He certainly merited this reward because many
times he had shown excellent judgment whlie acting captain during the year and
is better known than any other player in the league.
Boy, this ground that I lit on feels soft! No wonder, the boys have taken
me home and I'm in bed. Maybe I donyt know so much football after all. Who
are all those people? Oh yes, there's old Doc Allen and his assistants Stevens
and Furgeson, with the kit and sponges. How we used to treat them at school!
All managers are expected to be goats though.
Coach Honorary Captain '32
1932 1 BUCQKEYE
This year the coach used a new idea in football. Instead of cutting the
unusualy large squad he allowed those who would have been on the cut list to
keep on practicing and called them the Reserves. They were under the capable
management of Coach Cuff.
ln order that the Reserves would have an alm for which to work and
that football would not become stale, a schedule was arranged with Reserves of
The first game was with Liberty at Liberty. lt must have been stage
fright that overtook our Reserves on the field because they couldn't show a thing.
They lost l9 to O. However. that was the first football game for nearly
all of them.
Their next game was at Bryan. This time no one was afraid of anyone
else and just walked around as if Bryan weren't there at all. They chalked up 40
points and held Bryan scoreless.
Defiance at Defiance was their next victim. Defiance put in Hrst string
men against them. They put up a good scrap, but our Reserves defeated them
I2 to 6. That ended their schedule away from home.
Bryan was their oponent for the first home game. It took them a long
time to get here and after they did the Reserves made a racetrack of Loose Field
piling up a score of '58 to Bryan's O.
Liberty, who was the only school to have defeated them so far was next.
Napoleon dealt them a little of their own medicine and defeated them l2 to 7.
For their last game they played Defiance who again put in first string men.
This game was a little tougher than the rest and they came out behind in the 7
to 0 score.
Finishing up with a 666 average is a good deal better than the first squad
To show their appreciation for the most helpful training that Coach Cuff
had given them, the Reserves presented him with a beautiful knife with "Coach"
engraved upon it. Napoleon High School should find some future stars among
the Reserves. They were all awarded with an NAA.

ting fouls is the pastime for both teams. lt's a close game all the way through
but Napoleon does not once have the lead. The final score is 24-25.
The alumnus game is the only game during vacation. Thinking the high
school team esay, the graduates put in their weaker playres and paid for it.
The high school wins the battle by a 16- 14 score. The band was out for this first
home game with lots of pep . The cheering section was not so good.
And then for another home game. This time Montpelier, a league team.
They're wnining all right but not as expected. Montpelier makes a Hnal spurt
at the end of the game but it's useless and Napoleon wins 43-34. They are at
the top of the league with no defeats.
Bryan. another league team, visits Napoleon next. They are supposed to
be rather stiff but Napoleon is the favorite. The Reserves easily beat their
opponents 14-5. Ahl it goes worse for the varsity. They are behind at the
half. The second half is very fast and Napoleon is steadily gainng. The score
is tied and the game is almost over. For once the cheering section si wild. Then
Napoleon gets their 2 point lead, a little bit of stalling and the game is over.
That still leaves Napoleon on top of the league.
The following night the varsity went to Tiliin to play the Junior Order
team. Here they were greatly outclassed and lost 14-31. Although the team
was defeated the school put up a big steak dinner after the game. Johnny
Vocke nearly lost his Christmas tie to one of the waitresses.
Liberty is the next to try to take Napoleon off its league perch. They
fail to do anything to the Reserves. Although Liberty starts out hot they
soon get behind and stay behind. The final score is 27-13. The varsity game
is tough for Napoleon. At the half Liberty is leading 7-6. But that second
half! fNapoleon gets sloppy and steadily goes around Libertyl. The game
ends 24- l 71
Defiance is the next on schedule, By peculiar arrangement the varsity plays
before the Reserves. Defiance has lost only one League game and Napoleon
none so this will have much to do in the league standing. Napoleon varsity
starts out good, leading 4-1. By that time Defiance gets started and leads
9-5 at the half, Napoleon having only one field basket. The second half be-
longs to Defiance. They have a stubborn defense so that Napoleon doesn't score
another field goal. 22-7 is the final count, Napoleon is still ahead in the
The Reserves try for revenge but follow in the footsteps of the varsity.
l9Q52 - BUCKBYE
They lose 12-8. Anyhow Napoleon has a better band than Denance has. The
next week the varsity plays at Bowling Green. B. G. has already defeated De-
fiance so they are the favorites. Napoleon doesn't have any chance and loses
That week end Wauseon cames to Napoleon. Their Reserve team was one
of the few to defeat Napoleon so Napoleon is determined to win. They start
out fine and are leading 8-0. Then Wauseon gets going and ties the score
15-l5, just before the game ends The overtime period is fast and in nobody's
favor but just before the gun shoots, Wauseon again sinks a Held goal to take
the game 15-17. The Blue and White varsity starts out ahead, too, but holds
the lead. In the second half Wauseon tries a comeback but cannot overcome the
lead and loses 31-26.
Liberty is Napoleon's next victim at home. The Reserves are cocky at
the beginning of the game and are playing their worst basketball, At the half
Liberty is leading. The second half looks better for Napoleon and they're able
to tie the score, Upp sinks a free throw to make the score l9-18. Napoleon
goes into a stall until the game ends. The varsity has a rather easy time defeat-
ing Libertu They sink some almost inhuman shots which keep them in a
good lead. The Blue and White outscores Liberty 39-25, Napoleon still holds
its high place but has some of its toughest games to play yet.
Bowling Green has not lost a game yet, and they don't intend to lose the
and at the armory. Does Napoleon ever hand everybody a surprise Y T They
don't allow B. G. to make any field goals until the last few minutes of play.
Then they score two of them. The score was 29- l Z when the "game was ofh-
cially declared extinct". tl-X pet phrase of one of the class of 95.7
The Montpelier cheese box is the next scene of the league battle. The
boys are a little disappointed when they get there because the mermaids have
been taken from the wall. The Reserves were supposed to win their game but
no, Montpelier held them down until the last of the game when Napoleon made
a Hnal try but lost 16-18, The Blue and White varsity was clicking perfectly
but were terrible on their shots. Montpelier sank the first basket but failed to
sink the moral of Napoleon. The team had chance after chance at peep shots
but couldnlt sink many Alnohoww, Even then they had an easy time defeating
their opponents 21-34.
The teams next upheld the colors at Bryan. The Bryan Reserve team
did a lot of talking before their game but Napoleon rammed it right down
their throats during the game. The first half belonged to Bryan but the second
half and the biggest part of the 12-15 score belonged to Napoleon. The var-
sity again was up to its new trick of missing peep shots. They were very slow
in getting their lead but when it once came they won the argument by a 19-12
After disposing of Bryan the teams were going to take on Van Wert, a
tournament team. The second team had an easy time defeating Van Wert
Z1-11. But the varsity I 1 lt must have been the flu. Van Wert's fast break-
ing team set Napoleon back 41-20.
And then for the game of games, the night of nights and the battle of
the Century! Defiance was going to paddle down the river to win the league
trophy. Defiance had once defeated both Napoleon teams.
The Reserves easily defeated Defiance 24-15. The Armory was packed
to see the game which would determine the league championship for Northwest-
ern Ohio. lt had to be lilies for somebody and Defiance was the victim. That
was a game at which people with weak hearts would pass out on a stretcher.
The game was nip and tuck all the time and ended 11-11. Such cheering was
never heard before in all history of the armory. The three minute overtime
period brought prayers, tears and honest-to-goodness, hearty yelling. Not a
Held goal was sunk but Napoleon was able to score 2 free throws to take the
league championship and trophy.
The champion of the league usually loses its first game at the tournament.
Napoleon drew Van Wert and is determined to beat the jinx. The vision is
rather hazy now. A dollar and l believe l can clear it up. Cl readily paidj. lt's
clear again. Napoleon played hard. 15-15 was the score at the half. The
second half Van Wert ran away with the Blue and White and put them out
of the tournament 21-37,
Letters were awarded to Wagnei', Funkhouser, Albrink, Reiser, Shartzer,
Druhot, Boyd and Vocke. Minor awards were presented to E. Lanzer, Upp,
'Wesche, Sucher, Herge, Cramer and R. Lanzer.
Again the lettermen chose an honorary captain. Because of his outstand-
ing sportsmanship and worth to the team, l'Whiteyl' Wagner was chosen to
this position, Whitey is undoubtedly the best all around athlete in our school.
He is a senior this year and intends to continue his athletic career at college. May
he continue bringing renown to this school by being as successful in college and
later life as he was here.

Without a regular lineup the Junior Hi basketball team, built entirely
of green material, passed thru a fairly good season, considering everything. The
team showed much improvement from game to game but was unable to win
many of them. All in all, the work of the team was satisfactory. In spite of
lack of exeperience, each boy was in the game with a will to do his best and a
splendid spirit of sportsmanship carried thru the entire season. Five letter men
will pass on to high school and we hope that this year's experience has been a
great help in building a greater high school team of to-morrow.

ln full and Whole hearted appreciation of the
efforts and Willingness of certain individuals in and
around the school to assist in making this 16th edi-
tion of the A'Buckeye" a success, we of the staff Wish
to extend our "thanks" and recognition of those ser-
vices. As much as we should like to name such in-
dividuals, limited space does not permit.
Due to the financial stringencies existing at this
time, and the condition of business in general, the
managerial department chose the policy of "not" en-
deavoring to obtain page advertisements from the
business men of Napoleon. It is our belief that in
so many ways has the business man given to school
publications in the past, by contributions of large
sums, that we figured for a less strenuous campaign.
Hence the signatures on the page facing: read the
names and remember, it was through the help of these
men that vou are able to be reading this book.
