The Board instituted a three point program during the school term of 1938 and 1939 which has helped make our school year a most successful one, Our school was organized on the 6-6 basis, an art and music teacher was employed, and the Laboratory of Industries was opened.

Later the Na- poleon High School Alumni Association assumed this practice, Awards are made on the basis of scholarship and service to the school. Annually the three highest boys and girls in each class are presented with certiiicates. In the Senior class the live highest boys and girls are recognized for their services during the four years of high school. The two highest boys and two highest girls receive gold and silver medals, respectively. The remainder receive certificates. This year, seventh and eighth graders received awards, due to the fact that these grades are now included in high school. We feel that this custom is an intrinsic and important part of school life. The award is something every pupil may strive and work for. Therefore, for the Hrst time, we, the Class of 1939, are setting aside this page of the Buckeye for the winners of the 1939 awards.

After the Hrst few hectic weeks we became quite seasoned to high school customs and settled down to studying. From the first we distinguished ourselves by being a most forward group and refused to be squelched by upper-classmen. We achieved a high scholastic stand- ing and we intend to continue to do so. The Freshmen were well represented in the glee clubs, debate, band, and orchestra. A number of our boys show promise of becoming valuable athletes. In the years to come, they may make better teams for old N. H. S. The girls, also, participated in sports wholeheartedly and well. It seems our class is made up of young science aspirants, for the majority of students chose the science course. Possibly our class will furnish the engineers. designers, and chemists of tomorrow.

Bryan-Bryan proved themselves league champs and clipped the Napoleon lads by a score of 41 to 25. Wauseon-Game canceled because of flu epidemic. -- BASKETBALL --Q-M Reserves Left to right: L. Kolbe, R. Kretz, C. Wells, A. Reimund, E. Myer, J. Bost, J. Pruchey, J. L. Johnson, Coach. A new group of boys made up Napoleon's Reserve team this year. The boys won five and lost eight of their scheduled games. Most of the defeats were by very narrow margins of three and four points. These fellows will be playing together again next year and their past experience should make them a winning team.

Defiance 67-Paulding l6 Every tournament has one-a weak team. Deliance drew it and had a field day. Bryan 47h-Van Wert 29 The Bears did their part in keeping the tournament within the league, and turned the heat on Van Wert. Bowling Green 32--Montpelier 39 Montpelier, the league cellar club. was still in there pitching-upsetting the proverbial dope bucket with this win. Napoleon 31-Perrysburg 28 The highly praised Yellowjackets failed to impress and the Scots finished on the long end again. SEMI-FINALS Deiance 51-Montpelier 30 The Locos had plenty of pep the first half, but Deiance came to in the second round and proved its worth. -1 BASKETBALL T- lunior High Row one. Left to right: L.

The Junior High team had a most successful season. Seventeen games were scheduled and the boys won ten of these. The boys displayed excellent sports- manship and cooperation in all their playing. The team was composed of eighteen boys from the eighth and ninth grades. Twelve of these boys were awarded letters. These fellows are building excellent backgrounds and they will make the winning teams for N. H, S. in the future. JUNIOR HIGH FOOTBALL Twenty-five boys from the seventh, eighth and ninth grades turned out for practice during the season. These fellows worked diligently learning the fundamentals of the game. The time they are spending now will make them the better N. H. S. players of tomorrow. Tournament CContinuedD Napoleon 24fBryan 25 "Close" counts in horseshoes, but not in basketball. The Bears just eked out a win in their toughest game of the year. FINALS Defiance 28-Bryan 'SO An early lead was too much for the Defiance quintet to ovecrome, and the Bears won the tournament and the trip to Columbus by a slim two points. ---- CLASS OF '41 l Class 'History This, our Sophomore year, has passed most quickly for us, It has seemed so fleet because We have enjoyed this past year and due to the fact that We were better acquainted with school procedure than previously. This year, more so than last, the class of '41 has shown a keen interest in athletics and school organizations. Our representatives were found participating in football. basketball and track. We took an active part in student council, band, orchestra, glee clubs, Hi- Y and G. R. Our biggest event of the year was the Sophomore party, attended by some sixty of us. We spent the evening playing games, dancing, getting better ac- quainted with each other and topped off a most delightful evening With refresh- ments, We have participated in school activities to the best of our ability and We are trying to uphold the standards of N. H. S. and of the Class of '4l. We are eagerly looking forward to next year as a time when We shall take a more im- portant part in school affairs and school leadership.

Due to lack of experience and lightweights we had a tough time-too many of the boys had never played in a game longer than a few minutes before and thus they had plenty to learn. They did learn something I am sure. We never were beaten by very high scores except in Defiance and Bryan gamles. This ought to show we had something anyway. However, I think next season we shall turn out about as good a team as anyone else in the League. --DON ZIMMER. --CLASS OF '4O Class History The Juniors have entered all activities Whole heartedly. lf you have come in contact with the l-li-Y, Girl Reserves, the Glee Clubs, Future Farmers of America, Band, Orchestra, or Debate Team, you have seen them well represent- ed. The "Class of 40" presented its Hrst play this year, HSeven Sisters," most successfully. The basketball, football, tennis, and track teams have had capable Juniors occupying regular positions also. The intramural sports, which are comparatively new, were entered by all, and many of the medals were Won by Juniors, on the night of the contest. As participants in athletics, musical organizations, debate, and as members of clubs Which develop us socially, We have endeavored to use our talents for the good of our school and ourselves. In our ensuing high school year We will make use of the experience which We have gained in the past few years and strive for bigger and better things. -ANDREW LOWRY. --M- CLASS OF '40 -- Class Officers President ----- Andrew Lowry Vice-President - Kieth Hickman Secretary James Punkhouser Treasurer Mary Helen Pohhnan 1-- CLASS OF '40 -- Next Year We Wil Row One: P.

But we managed to slop around the track in the rain for a couple of hours and come out with only a slight case of pneumonia. Napoleon 64-Pioneer 45 More rain. The track looked like a small canal but we had fun wading to victory. Napoleon 80-Liberty 491!4-Defiance 4843 The sun was out for a change and the boys felt like colts in the Springtime and we broke through for another victory with energy to spare.

G. a chase all the way but due to a couple of bad breaks B. G. finally nosed ahead. For the first time in many years we are able to give you the Hnal scores of the League track meet. The Meet was held at Montpelier. The qualifying tryouts started at 6 o'clock and the finals started at 8 o'clock under Mont- pelier's new flood light system. Following are the results: Bryan 72, Montpelier 48, Wauseon 36, Liberty Center 24, Napoleon 20, Defiance. l6. Napoleon did not fair so well in the League meet. Everybody seemed to have an OE night: very few of our boys even qualified for the finals. Tennis The concrete courts at our High School have definitely encouraged a revival of the game of tennis. Heretofore, private courts were the only facilities avail- able for improving your game. Now we find more underclassmen playing tennis and consequently, varsity tennis has its greatest number of young players. Matches were played with Bowling Green, Toledo Scott, Bryan and De- fiance, with more wins than losses recorded. We had the privilege of being the host for the league meet on the l5th of May: the district meet was held at Bowling Green May l9th-20th. Members of the Napoleon Tennis team are: Andrew Lowry Russel Smiley Robert Brillhart Robert Kanney James Funkhouser William Ludeman Ward Andrew -- CLASS OF '39 --1 Give Honor To Whom Honor Is Due Within the last four years, two especially momentous events have occurred in Napoleon High School. The first was the arrival of ninety-eight tiniid and self-conscious youngsters into the corridors and classrooms of the high school in l936. The second, in 1939, was the graduation of sixty-nine young men and women, now inspired and made hopeful for the future by the capable in- struction of the faculty. Let us review a few of the more important incidents which have brought such a great change over us. From the beginning, the class of '39 proved to be an active group. We willingly and successfully participated in athletics, debate, music, clubs, student governing, dramatics, and social affairs. Our two class plays, A'Growing Pains", in 1938, and "The Night of January l6", a year later, will always be remem- bered as smash hits. The Junior-Senior Prom which was our farewell gift to last year's seniors established a high goal for future classes to strive for. Those of our classmates who were unable to join in the participation furnished the support which helped immeasurably to further our success. Our last year in high school has passed rapidly-much too rapidly for those of us who regret that we must leave the friendly portals of Napoleon High School so soon. The 1939 Buckeye, our final and greatest accomplishment, has been planned and completed, and the National Honor Society has been inaugur- ated, and these are now memories along with the Junior-Senior, Baccalaureate and Commencement. And so the class of 1939 passes on to make room for the next group of eager seniors. Although we too are eager to step out into the world and take our place in life, we will always remember the joys and sorrows of our high school days. -LAWRENCE EUNKHOUSER.

Eighth Grade President ---- William Vocke Vice President - James Curdes Secretary ---- June Delventhal Treasurer ---- Richard Motter This year found the eighth grade a part of high school. Eighth graders had become high school students, under the benign guidance of Mr. Oldfather. The class quickly adjusted themselves to the new arrangement and settled down to a busy year. Eighth grade boys were well-represented on the Junior High basketball team. ln celebration of their splendid record, a party was given for them at the end of the season. Students belonged to the in-school clubs which met bi-weekly during the activity period. The two home rooms sponsored very clever and successful booths at the All-School Carnival held last Spring. e?- CLASS OF '44 -- Pirst row: B. Allen, W. Oberhaus, R. Stites, M. Buckmaster, J.

Seventh Grade President - Jo Ann Shuster Vice President - - Muriel Bond Secretary-Treasurer - , - - Charles Snyder For the first time in school history the seventh grade was organized. Due to the fact that our school system Was changed over to the six-six basis, this class is under high school jurisdiction and is considered as one of the six high school grades. Class members belonged to the various in-school clubs organized this year. The boys contributed several players to the Junior High team, which was composed of seventh, eighth and ninth graders. The class sponsored a booth at the All-School Carnival held in March. Seniors BUCKEYE Honor Society The National Honor Society is an organization for the furthering of schol- arship, leadership, character, and service. The members of the society are chosen on these qualities. This is the first year that Napoleon has had a chapter in the society. The C. D. Brillhart Chapter has eighteen seniors from the upper third of the class and five juniors from the upper lOf70 of the class. The members are: Norma Baden Kenneth Butterfield Amelia Busch Mary Jane Creager Margaret Dietrich Virginia Dunlap Robert Brillhart Virginia C1ebhart Marcella Fruth Lawrence Punkhouser Patricia Gilpin Ray Harper Richard Harrison Rosaline Kelly Juniors Keith Hickman Edith Helberg Cecilia Light Norma Louden Betty Spieth Betty Wildermuth Mary Woodward Paul Van Streader James Fun khouser Student COUHCII Under the careful supervision of Mr. Oldfather, our Student Council was launched last year and it has become an important organization in our school. This year we have placed student receptionists in the halls, and have at last brought to our school a Chapter of the National Honor Society. We sponsored school dances and a school-wide carnival, which is to be an annual affair. With the money from these activities we have purchased clothing and glasses for needy students. We have been very fortunate this year in having Miss Shiffrer as one of our advisors. She has been a grand person to work under and the Student Council Wishes to thank her for her much needed help, Visual Education Visual education is one of the newer departments of our school. This is the second year that we have used motion pictures and still films. Since vision brings to us eighty-three per cent of our information, visual aids to education will continue to grow in every progressive school. The pupil ofrtoday is expected to know and to learn more than the pupil of twenty-five or fifty years ago. Accordingly, it was necessary to devise methods which will make it possible to teach more, in the same length of time, to pupils of the same mental levels as before. p Once each week we had a noon movie, which consisted of two reels that were educational or semi-educational, and one reel or comedy. Uuring the school year, six feature programs were shown to the entire student body. Our new sound system, coupled with our efficient 16 mm. De Vry pro- jector, regularly factory inspected, produces movies on a par with those shown in many theatres. The executive head of this department is Nlr. Ort, who wail the aid or lX6iss Margaret Dietrich, secures the lilms and returns thcm to LU.: ihm i..1rar-es. Mr. Ort arranges the schdeules of the student projectionists. Reliable student operators were selected from among the better students. The boys were not taken from their classes, but from study halls. The project was ably handled by the following boys, who were members of the Projection Club: Kenneth Butterfield, Charles lilotz, Karl Albrink, Sam Shook, James Kerr, and liobert Liunn. Honor points were given as l'CiCx.1gl1lLlb1'l lor men' service. . Approximately 220 reels of film were shown during this school year as compared with 140 last year. New equipment which was added during this year includes a turntable Qfor playing recordsj, speaker, microphone, phonograph records and 20 still Hlms. The speech class co-operated with the visual education department by pre- paring lectures to accompany the showing of the still iilms to the grade children. The visual education department was self-supporting through the sale of activity tickets, season tickets and general admission to the noon movies and features. We feel certain that, under Mr,pOrt's capable leadership, the visual educa- tion department will continue to grow and be of even more value in the future. BUCKEYE Napoleon High School Band Napoleon High School Orchestra S Band Napoleon High School's 60 piece marching and concert band, under the expert baton of Director "Mike" Lombardi, has sailed through another success- ful year with flying colors. lt performed splendidly at the football games, dis- playing marching formations never before attempted by a high school band in this part of the state. The band furnished music at the basketball games, gave many public concerts, and admirably represented Napoleon on many occasions. traveling to Lakeside, Fremont, Holland, Defiance, Wauseon and Toledo, and winning several prizes for performances. Orchestra The Napoleon High School Orchestra, under the direction of M. L. Lom- bardi, played an important part in many school activities this year. The organ- ization furnished music for the Junior and Senior Class plays as well as for local functions, and presented several concerts. This orchestra, an intrinsic part of the school, offers a splendid opportun- ity for advanced students to become 'acquainted with a high type of music, It is hoped that such instruments as the viola and cello will become more popular in the future, to make for more complete instrumentation. Contest Musical students of Napoleonxl-ligh School again participated in the Nor- thwestern Ohio Solo and Ensemble Contest, held at the Bowling Green State University, April 14. Contestants: Cecilia Light, piano: John Crahan, violin: Robert Kiser, baritone: Rosaline Kelly, trumpet: Louis Davis, clarinetg Robert Brillhart, trombone, and Rosaline Kelly, Norman DeTray, Vernabelle Rhody, trumpet trio. All of Napoleon's instrumentalists, with one exception, received distinc- tive ratings which allowed them tcfparticipate in the State competition at Ober- lin, April 29. - 1939 BUCKEYE l G GD Debate This year a change in set-up for debate was introduced. Everyone interested in the subject was allowed to join the Debate Club and from this group the Varsity Debaters were chosen. The question-Resolved: That the United States should form an alliance with Great Britain was most interesting and timely. In view of the past events of the year, one realizes that this was a most appropiate question. Practically every news addition made it necessary for the debaters to add to or subtract from their cases. We had practice debates with Lake, Delta and Wauseon high schools. The triangular debate was reduced to a duel between Napoleon and Wau- seon. Our teams were: Affirmative-Patricia Gilpin, Marcella Frutb. Rosaline Kelly,.Charles Klotz, Alternate: Negative-Amelia Busch, Margaret Dietrich, James Funk- houser, Richard Harrison. We sent the following four complete teams to an invitational tournament at Port Clinton, Ohio, where half of the debates were won: AH'irmative-Marcella Fruth, Patricia Gilpin: Karl Albrink, Charles Klotz. Negative-Amelia Busch, James Punkhouser: Norma Baden, Margaret Dietrich. To the tournament at Heidelberg College. Tiffin, Ohio, the most import- ant tournament of the season, we sent one complete team, which won one-third of its debates: AHirmative-Marcella Pruth, Patricia Gilpin Negative-James Funkhouser, Amelia Busch Do You Remember n n n Sept.

We were all highly entertained by this play which concerned the eiforts of Mrs. Gyurkovics to marry off her four eldest daughters-each with a dowry of six jars of peach jam and a rep parlor set. She had arranged her daughters' ages to suit her purposes, but when Mitzi, the fourth one, was expelled from the convent it was necessary for her to begin all over again. Mitzi was pursued by dashing young Eerenz Horkoy, who, when he learned the necessity for the marriage of the three older sisters before he might win Mitzi set out to catch for each a husband. Amid many complications-tears, tragedy and laughter-the feat was accomplished and Eerenz took Mitizi for himself. To these actors we extend orchids and congratulations. You set a record hard to beat. all mature and the play itself was a drama rather than a comedy. The Seniors Senior Class Play U., umwlr llihii llilll gn' l , . On May 22, l939, the Class of '39 presented l'The Night of January l6". The entire play took place in a New York courtroom where beautiful Karen Andre was on trial for the murder of her lover and former employer, unscrupulous Bjorn Faulkner. An un- usual feature was the recruiting of a jury of l2 from the audience. There were two endings to the play and the one given was in accordance with the verdict of the Jury. This play was entirely different from the usual run of plays given in the past. The characters were are to be commended for their excellent performance.

During the year this group gave a Christmas program and par- ticipated in the operetta and the music festival. Double Octette A second new musical group introduced during the year, was the double mixed octette. The group sang very admirably on several occassions and partici- pated in the various programs presented by the school. Girls' Glee Club This organization started off very enthusiastically with a great number of girls as can be seen by the above picture. However, this number soon dwindled to a compact group which worked very well together and did some very credit- able singing. The Clee Club girls took an active part in the operetta and the Music Festival which was presented in the Spring. ff Boys' Glee Club . The Boys' Glee Club enjoyed a successful season. ln cooperation with the Girls' Clee Club we sang some beautiful Christmas music at two programs and also presented the operetta 'lloan of the Nancy Lee". Our last major per- formance of the year was the May Music Festival. All four of Napoleon High School's Musical groups are directed by Miss Slaughter. 1939 B U C K E Y E South Sea Swing H ' On May 26, l938, the graduating class of '38 were the gusets of the class of '39 at one of the love- ' liest and mfost unusual Proms ever held.

Long Finance -- P. Gilpin, B. Spieth The Girl Reserves, under the guidance of Miss Kennedy and Miss Parn- ham, have attempted to meet the goal of our slogan and purpose-"to face life squarely" and "to find and give the best," We have had a very active year. ln cooperation with the Hi-Y, several dances and skating parties were given. During the football games we sponsored a stand. The annual Girl Reserve Conference was held at Bryan this year to which we sent several delegates. The club gave its piano to the school and a book of etiquette by Emily Post to the library. At Christmas the girls made some families' celebrations happier than they would have been otherwise. They donated food, clothing, and toys. Two oH'icers are to be sent to Camp Walbridge for a week this summer to bring back ideas for our club next year. In the spring we had a most lovely and impressive candelight service when new members were inducted. The year's activities were climaxed on May ll, by the Mother-Daughter Banquet at which the mothers of the girls and the Seniors were honored. Hi-Y President - - Don Chance Vice President - Dick Harrison Secretary - Charles Klotz. Jr. Treasurer - - - Lawrence Punkhouser The Hi-Y is an organization of boys, designed to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community higher standards of Christian character and living. Many small projects were undertaken and successfully completed. The Club in co-operation with the Girl Reserves sponsored several dances and a roller skating party which proved to be very popular with the students. The worth-r while project of sending flowers, weekly, to each patient in the hospital was continued. We received many letters from patients which revealed that our ef- forts were appreciated and well directed. We sent two officers to Camp Nelson- Dodd, the annual Hi-Y training camp. They brought back to us many valuable and worthwhile suggestions. 1939 B U C K E Y E Senior Class What is more pleasant than looking into the lives of old classmates? The day is ideal to drift and dream, and it has been so long since we've seen them. Let's just take each old friend and see what time has done for them. Drift- dream-glide along-forget all your cares-worries-meet the business men and women of to-day. ln the old home town, we learned 'that Ken Butterield and Chuck Klotz had purchased the World Theatre and had so improved this edifice that they had far outstripped Napoleon's other theatre. At the invitation of the generous managers, we dropped in to see the latest show. lt was a magniicent epic written by that erstwhile cartoonist Estel "Snoo" Snyder entitled A'Popeye Brings 'em Back Wiltedf' starring Jean Her- rick as Olive Oyl. The newsreel showed us pictures of that famous flier, Kenny Hershberger and his lovely stewardess liileen Bowerman. They were planning a non-stop rocket flight from Napoleon back to Napoleon, in a beautiful rocket ship designed by l:arl Brubaker. As we came out ot the theatre we were nearly run down by a large La Salle. Bill Bokerman stepped out, handed his chalfeur, Marion Stout, a nickel and proceeded to sell us some life insurance. In at Vic's we found all the high school kids drinking Cokes, benignly watched over by the new owner 'lCedric" Walter. rzddy Mengerink was in- stalled in his own hardware store and "lVlim" Reiger had given up nursing to raise all the little Mengerinks. Leonard Pfau had become a big Diesel man but Betty Spieth was still his "Foo-losophy". Celie "Enoch" Light and her all-girl orchestra were still play- ing "Red Sails in the Sunset", at the Butterklotz Theatre. We paid a visit at what turned out to be a rather hectic household. "Daddy" Kniflin was'desper- ately trying to get a portrait of "lVlummie" QPat Gilpinj and all the little "Kniflinites." Betty Wildermuth had her own exclusive dress shop, which attracted a clientele from all over the country. Betty Walker and Marjorie Oberhaus were her lovely and alluring models. Lucille lmbrock did the secretarial work for the famous dress salon. We decided to drop in on dear old N. H. S. and see what changes had oc- curred. Julian Rohrbaugh was earnestly instructing the little tots on how to say "Little Bob Peep" with a new angle. QLittle Po Beep, come blow your hornlj 'AHerk" Zimmer, once a one-man football team was now a superlative coach at "Nap-Hi". He was talking over old times with Dick Enz, the world record holder for the 220 yard dash. James Parker, having at long last discovered a better car, had a Studebaker agency. Knowing himself to now be a big business man, he held secretary Norma Mann on his knee. Behind the Parker Agency we found a Junk Shop which La Von Russell had started with the remains of his old Ford. Roland Strayer, as his No. l assistant, lured prospective buyers of junk into the shop with his famous cornet masterpiece, the "Junkmen's Serenade." On the street corner we met little Mary Reutz who told us her Mama, QMaryiWoodwardj was now dancing in the White House in order to keep the wolf away from the door. Prophecy We saw Charles Mann, now a famous reporter, rushing madly to the scene of an accident. So we dashed along only to find Freddie Arps and Luetta Lange sitting calmly in their car, Oh, yes! The car was setting on top of a tele- phone pole. Bob Homan, Lowell Westhoven and Bill Beck, had gone into the wholesale grocery and meat business in a big way. Dropping into the "Lucette" beauty shop we found Lucy Johnson, Mary Jane Creager and Mary Long de- voting themselves to the task of making women more beautiful. Rounding the next corner we entered the foyer of the luxurious night-club "Rendezvous" owned by Amelia Busch and Marcella Fruth. While partaking of a delightful repast served by Arlene Eversole, we were entertained by Maestro Dickie Harrison and his "Symphonettes." Genial master of ceremonies, Arthur Wilhelm hovered in the background. Later we learned that the combined eHforts of the efficient secretaries, Norma Loudon and Valieta Dachenhaus were required to manage this smooth running establishment. Our attention was diverted, however, by the sight of Miss Rosina Kryling who had made the belated discovery of an Ohio law which forbid people under eighteen to dance in public places. She was diligently watching the dancers, spotting the erstwhile members of the Kryling Dancing School run by cousin Lucy Kryling. As we went out on the Street again we stopped to admire Eileen Fruchey, who was demonstrating the latest invention of Rosie Laremore, a device for automatically applying lipstick every two hours. Wandering on we found ourselves facing a beautiful building, "Kelly's Clinic," established through the philanthropy of Dr. Rosaline Kelly. The clinic was constructed by the Harper and Chance Construction Co. ln the hospital we found two beautiful Hmaids in white", Margaret Dietrick and Ruth Ann Craw- ford. Just then a newsboy rushed by, shouting 'AExtra, hextral" and thrust into our hand a copy of the "Up to the Minute", famous Napoleon daily. We saw several articles of great interest to us. Lawrence Funkhouser, in his search for hidden oil pockets, had discovered the remains of another city under Na- poleon. Paul CPerceyQ Van Streader had just left for France where he will give "Jitterbug" lessons to the Parisians at the "Marian Suydam Nuti-Nite Club." Alvin "Knobby" Spoering and "Little Herbie" Rettig are managing fighters who do their fighting for them. On the style page we were attracted by a photo- graph of Lloyd Hefflinger, professional model, in a snazzy sports outfit. A huge advertisement announced the opening of the Baden, Bogert and Borris "Baby Buggy Bumper Co." for the benefit of bigger and better bouncing babies. We were asked why not bring your wreck to the Chas. Walters "Crash and Col- lision Shop." In the School News was the announcement that Dorothy Weaver was inaugurating a new system of French teaching in Nap-Hi. Virginia Dunlap, doing missionary work in the wilds of Napoleon, was eliciting pledges promising abstination from profane language. Edward Shelt had deserted the romantic life of a "gentleman of fortune" to join Miss Dun- lap's society for "Prevention of Profanity," and is now her inspired and ener- getic right-hand. "Gib" Westrick purchased the old Spengler grocery and has appointed Dale Rex as business manager. And so we bid a fond farewell to these up-right and self-respecting citiiens. Who would believe that once they were our simple and unsophisticated class- mates? --The Combined Efforts of the Annual Staff. 1939 Laboratory of For many years Napoleon High School felt the need for an expanded lndustrial Arts program, Our Superintendent and Board of Education had planned for such an expansion, and at last the plan was ap- proved and actual construction began in June 1938. The entire first floor of the high school was recon- structed to accomodate new equipment. On Jan- uary 2Oth, l939, the new Laboratory of Industries was formally opened by Dr. William E. Warner of Ohio State University. One of the units offered in the "General Shop" curriculum is Drawing and Graphic Arts, with suffi- cient equipment to accomodate twenty students. The units of drawing offered are Machine, Architectural, Sketching, Sheet Metal development and Blue Print- ing. ln the very near future printing equipment will be installed. Another unit in the course is Woodworking. Here various woods, their uses and characteristics are studied. Many small articles of furniture, toys and novel projects are constructed. Students are taught the art of preserving, finishing and beautifying wood- en articles. Boys learn the manipulation of different hand tools and the use and operation of power ma- chines. These machines are the lathe, circular saw, grinder, jointer, band saw, and sander. ln the Department of Photography a study of materials and processing is made. Students learn to take pictures recognizing light, exposure time, com- position, and types of film. The boys learn methods of developing, printing and enlarging their pictures, how to use such equipment as printers, enlargers and to mix materials. Industries ln the field of Electricity, and Radio a demon- station Panel consisting of four parts and covering transportation, communication, heat and light Will be equipped. Motor and generator repair and house- hold repair work is taught. Here is testing and devel- oping equipment consisting of a department speaker system, telephone system, and a short wave unit. ln the department of Sheet Metal there is in- struction in layout and superposition in cutting, rolling, forming, burring and turning of material. The student is also taught Wiring and soldering and copper hammering. Instruction in General Metal and Forging is another area. Here boys receive machine shop prac- tice, Work with lathes, strap and Wrought iron, hot and cold metal Work, tool tempering and heat treat- ment. They learn small tool making and condition- ing. The Foundry and Ceramics department consist of fundamental instruction, patterns and casting in lead, aluminum and brass. Plans are being made for the addition of ceramic equipment. An eighth unit in the Laboratory is that of au.tomotives. Students learn the assembly of auto- mobile and airplane motors. They repair motors and cars which are part of this departments equipment. The function of different parts is studied along with transportation and consumer value. The value of the new Laboratory of Industries to cur school and to the students of Napoleon is im- measu.rable. Here We have a finely equipped field of instruction, covering an entire floor of the building which is comparable to such departments of many larger schools. We are justly proud of and grateful to those who have made this achievement possible. BUCKEYE News Staff Scoops . . , deadlines to be met . . . ringing editorials . , opinions from our public . . censorship . . . proof-reading . . a search for news. Thus, briefly, a description of the departments which have faithfully kept our local papers and parents supplied with news of ourselves and school. Because there were so many budding journalists and such a quantity of news, it was necessary to organize two news staffs. Norma Baden edited for Miss Farnham's group while Miss Kennedy gave various ones a chance at editor- ship. ' To those of you who have journalistic ambitions--carry on for us. Much that we hoped for has been accomplished. There is an abundance of opportun- ity for great things to be done in this field in our school. To you we leave the hope and desire for a paper of our own. .

ORA GREEN To Miss Gre en, who is "witty, jolly, and full of fun and always ready to help someone," we extend our ap preciation and sincere thanks for her cheerful and willing aid, Intramurals Last year N. H. S. inaugurated a new system of basketball for girls and boys. Intramural basketball is played between home rooms: thereby allowing all pupils who have interest in sports to have a fair chance to take an active part in them. The girls of "'39" took the Intramural tournament last year but Miss Farnham's junior team took this year's tournament. While we are giving the Juniors credit we cannot pass without giving due recognition to the Sophomore and Freshmen teams. Intramural basketball among the boys was divided into two leagues-the National and the American. The teams were organized according to home rooms and there were eight teams in each league. The Yanks of Misters Florence and Cuff won in the American League. Miss Muffley's Phillies were the National League winners. On March I6 the two teams met and the Yanks were victorious. Jokes J.
