When your high school days lie far behind you,
may this record of school life be remembered and
To Michael L. Lombardi, Whose accomplish-
ments are profuse and well-known.
Board of Education
We, the class of "39", Wish to express our
sincere appreciation to our Board of Education for
the excellent educational opportunities they have
made available for us. 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.

Merit Award Winners
The class of l925 inaugurated the system for the presentation of certiiicates
and medals to the high ranking students for exceptional service. 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.

i--CLASS OF '42--
1 In the fall of '38 ninety youthful and ambitious students entered Napo-
leon High School as very green Freshmen. 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.

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

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

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.

out a win in their toughest game of the year.

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
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-
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.

As you can see we had a very uneventful season this year. Of course We
should have won more games than we did, but Lady Luck was not with us.
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.

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.

Due to spring football practice and rain, many of the boys were not yet

The boys gave B. 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,
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.
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.

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 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
Maroon and silver-gray.
"An hour of triumph comes at last to those who
watch and wait."

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.

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
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.
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:
Mary Jane Creager
Paul Van Streader

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 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'
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
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.
Napoleon High School Band
Napoleon High School Orchestra
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.
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.
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,
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. -

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
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

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.

This year a new musical organization was inaugurated in Napoleon
High School. For the first time We had a club which combined voices of boys
and girls. During the year this group gave a Christmas program and par-
ticipated in the operetta and the music festival.
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.
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

Sir Richard Camden was exiled from his country through the treachery of
his cousin, Lord Mortimer. Before taking his leave, Sir Richard found that his
sweetheart, Lady Joanna, had jilted him for Lord Mortimer. Sir Richard, with
a group of friends, turned pirate and manned "The Nancy Lee." The ship was

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
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.

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.

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
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.
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-
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-
"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-
--The Combined Efforts of the Annual Staff.
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
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.
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
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-
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.
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-
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. .

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.
