CLASS OF '42---
Vice President -
The old maple tree in front of school
Sways with new vigor today,
For 'neath its branches in caps and gowns
Passes our class on its way.
Just four years ago it watched us start
Quite green in our early years,
And now today, just four years past
It sees us seeking our careers.
ln our time here, success has been ours-
We studied books of every sort,
XVe were found in clubs and in the band,
Football, and all the other sports.
- - Bill Small
- Marvelyn Genuit
We filled the shoes of seniors before,
Our two class plays were smash hits,
And our 4'Buckeye", the best Aer
Will be read as long as time permits.
Now, all too soon June has rolled around,
The class of '42 must go its' way,
To make room for our younger fellowmen
Who want to learn and have their say.
On leaving, we want to thank our teachers
Whose work, is a job well done.
We also want to thank our fellow students
For having made school life, fun.
We leave now, the portals of N, H. S.
And pass with glory Aneath the old maple tree,
Prepared to fight the battle of life
For freedom and democracy?
4'Forward ever, Backward never."

hard Work it wasn't long until we had done just that. Our grades were high,

in great numbers. '

not forgetting that now they were beyond the green stage. Each and everyone
entered into the spirit of making Napoleon High better than ever. Sophomores
were found entering into football. basketball. track, E. E. A., debate, G. R.
and Hi-Y, E. H. A. Each one did credit to the task they undertook.
We are very grateful to our teachers for the guidance and patience they
have shown throughout the year. And even though at times we have been a
bit mischievous, I'm sure that none of us meant any harm.
As the school year draws near the end we look back and feel proud of
our advancement. ln the succeeding years we will always remember our Sopho-
more year as one of the most pleasant spent in Napoleon High.

After eight enioyable years of hard Work and pleasure the class of '45
has finally reached high school. Our two years of junior high were just the
preliminaries to the real thing, as you don't feel that you really go to high
school until you become a freshman. But Why look at the past? Let's look
at the present and the future. Our class participated in such activities as: band,
orchestra, intramurals. freshman football and basketball and Student Council,
Several of the boys even made the reserve basketball team and were creditable
representatives of us all. We also took part in the glee clubs and a great many
students helped with the Code. After this year We will all feel that We are
thoroughly acquainted and although We accomplished many things this year,
we will, We are sure, surpass our present attainment.

Napoleon High School had its most successful football season in a decade
this year, scoring 212 points to their opponents 72, they won eight straight
before losing their last game to Bryan on a rain soaked field This year marked
the first time in the long rivalry between Napoleon and Defiance that the Wild-
cats were able to lick Defiance two years in succession, The Cats set themselves
up as the kingpins of the Northwestern Ohio pigskin parade until injuries and
mud finally brought about their downfall. This year, four of the boys made
the mythical All-League first team: John Bost at quarterback: Mose Nye at left
end, Don Fruchey at right tackle and Ronnie Hefflinger at right guard. Three
boys were named on the second team: Howard Shartzer and Larry Weichers in
the backfield and Dick Motter at guard, while Ned DeTray, Bill Small, Max
Minnich and Gus Gurtzweiler were given honorable mention.
The Wildcats were one of the smallest teams in the N. W. O. A. L. this
year, but they proved to their opponents that dynamite comes in small packages
as they consistently played their bigger adversaries off their feet.
A great deal of the success of this team was due to head Coach Cliff Nelson
and his able assistant, Wade Wichael, who led them to their first N. W. O. A.
L. Championship in six years.
Napoleon vs. Swanton
Napoleon Liberty Center-7
Napoleon Bowling Green-0
The smallest Napoleon team in years took the field against a husky
Swanton crew. The outcome was never in doubt after the first quarter. This
is the most scoring a Napoleon team has done for many years.
Napoleon vs. Montpelier
The first time the "Cats" got the ball. Johnny Bost ran 75 yards for
a touchdown. The Napoleon eleven scored 21 points the first quarter to
smother the young, inexperienced, but game Montpelier team.
Napoleon vs. Defiance
Outweighed 20 lbs to the man, the unproven Napoleon Wildcats scored
two touchdowns in the first quarter against the Defiance Bulldogs. The Bull-
dogs came back to tie the game up several times, but the "Cats" were not to
be denied, and went on to win.
Napoleon vs. Liberty Center
The Liberty Center Tigers had a very tricky defense and it took the
Wildcats a quarter and more to figure it out. After this, the tide of battle
quickly turned, and the balance of the game was turned over to the Reserves.
Napoleon vs. Bowling Green
The Napoleon team journeyed to Bowling Green to play the toughest
Bobcat team of a decade. Napoleon, scored in the closing seconds of the first
half and the rest of the game was played in mid-field.
Napoleon vs. Perrysburg
Playing in a heavy rain which made the field very muddy, the Wildcats
proved that they could play under adverse conditions. It was a tough battle
for three quarters, but the Wildcats finally shook their backs loose,
Napoleon vs. Wauseon
Victory in the game meant a share in the league crown. The team
really went to town and the outcome was never in doubt.
Napoleon vs. Delta
In a game that was supposed to decide leadership in Northwestern Ohio
football circles, these two undefeated teams fought a dogged battle for three-
quarters. The "Cats" employing both razzle-dazzle and driving football
went on to win.

Napoleon vs Liberty Center
The young and inexperienced Napoleon Wildcats opened against a Lib-
erty club of unknown strength. The Wildcats shot immediately into the lead
and held the Tigers to a single Held goal throughout the game.
Napoleon vs. Delta
Against a fast and close-guarding Delta team, the Cats immediately be'
gan to hit, and built up an early lead which was never relinquished..
Napoleon vs. Bryan
After trailing 8 points at the half, the Wildcats forged into the lead in
the third period. In the fourth quarter, the fancy shooting of the Bears finally
subdued the Cats.
Napoleon vs. Deshler
The Cats journeyed to Deshler and finally won out in a close game, de-
feating a good class "B" team.
Napoleon vs, Defiance I
The Bulldogs, one of the most highly touted teams in Northwestern Ohio
laid their string of victories on the block. They got the victory, and the
Cats got the block.
Napoleon vs. Montpelier
After a close first half, the Wildcats limited the Locos to a single field
basket in the third period, while the Cats piled up a considerable margin.
Napoleon vs. Hicksville
The Cats journeyed to Hicksville and were beaten in a hard fought
battle. Five of our boys went out on fouls, and this helped contribute to
Napoleon vs. Wauseon
After a slow first half, the Cats found themselves in the third and fourth
quarters, but were too far behind to grasp victory.
Napoleon vs. Montpelier
The Montpelier club caught the Cats badly off form and went into an
early lead. The Cats simply could not hit, and were decisively beaten by
Napoleon vs. Bowling Green
The Cats looked better in this game, but the Bobcats were never in
Napoleon vs. Wauseon
The Cats played good ball in this game, and nearly upset the Indians,
but an early Wauseon lead survived 'till the last.
Napoleon vs. Defiance
Hitting their all-season low, the Cats simply couldn't connect. and
their defense was ragged. The Cats fell apart in the final minutes of the
game, and the Bulldogs took advantage of this,
Napoleon vs. Liberty Center
Trailing 17 to 10 at the half, the Cats were not to be denied, and
won out in a close game over an up and coming Tiger team.
Napoleon vs. Bryan
Remembering the last football game, and the first cage game, the Wild-
cats gained sweet revenge from the Bryan club,
Napoleon vs. Van Wert
The Napoleon team journeyed to Van Wert and after a slow start
against the favored Cougars, the Cats overcame a 15 point deficit and tied
the game at the half. Van Wert's power finally overcame the Cats in the
Napoleon vs, Paulding
In the last regularly scheduled game, the Cats displayed their best form
of the season, and easily defeated the colorful Paulding team, whch had
defeated many good teams.
Napoleon vs. Montpelier
In their first game in the tournament, the Cats were slight underdogs
to the Montpelier club. After a slow start, the Cats came to life, and kept up
the pace 'till the end of the game.
Napoleon vs. Bowling Green
In the semi-final battle, the highly favored Bowling Green Bobcats
met an inspired Napoleon team. The Wildcats led by one point at the half
but slowly fell behind in the remainder of the game. This was their toughest
game of the season, and the Cats fought their hearts out, and almost won.
Under the direction of Mr. Nelson, Mr. Wichael and Mr. Andrews the
thin clads of Napoleon High School are in the midst of another track season
as we go to press.
This year, because of the tire shortage, the schedule has been curtailed.
Bryan, Montpelier, Wauseon, Deliance, Liberty Center and Bowling Green
have been met in dual and triangular meets. The League meet will be held
at Bryan this year on the night of May 18th.
Track is just beginning to get a little notice from the public and we
have hopes that this year will be a successful one.

With Mr, Oldfather as advisor, the Student Council continued its work
as the representative of the student body.
During the year projects started in the years before were continued. Base
kets of food were distributed to the needy at Thanksgiving time, the hall mon-
itors Were again sponsored, and the Lost and Found case was maintained thru
out the year.
ln Working for the defense effort, the Council sponsored a drive for scrap
metal in the school and helped in the city-Wide campaign.
After three years the Hall Monitors, who were organized by the Student
Council, are still one of the main features in Napoleon High Schools' represen-
tation by the student body.
The primary purpose of this organization is safety in case of ire or to
assist, as Well as report the injury or illness of students.
Of no less importance are the secondary purposes, for the Hall Monitors
are also to help maintain order in the halls, keep the halls clear and orderly,
and to act as receptionist to the many strangers who enter our building.
The group consists of 42 members representing all four classes. Each
monitor is on duty one period each school day,
The members of this creditable organization look upon their appointment
not only as an honorable means of representing the student body, but also as
a duty which they are proud to undertake.
The News Staff this year Was ccmposed of the entire senior English class
and was under the supervision of Mr. Johnson.
Each student was given a chance to Write an editorial, While notes of each

This year the School Notes were written primarily for the general public--
not for the students. We acted on the belief that the public Would like to have

the citizenry have more than justified our belief.

Council in giving baskets at Thanksgiving. The candy stand was operated daily
and also at the football games. Two formal inductions were held, and many

help our country by buying a defense bond for the Club of "52." Delegates
were sent to all conventions and four officers were sponsors at Camp Nelson

Henry Simmons - -
Mrs. Jackson and Girls -
Mr. Simmons, a paint manufacturer, wishes to marry his daughter, Ethel,
to his business partner, Chester Binney, who is anything but the ideal man a
girl would Want to marry. Mr. Simmons has a theory that every woman wants
a man that all other women are crazy about so he searches for a way to make
the unromantic Chester popular. He finally is gifted with the bright idea of
selecting several pictures of beautiful girls from the corner drug store and hav-
ing Chester admit having a love affair with one of them. The pictures which
Chester select are l'The Queen of Rumaniau, "The Mona Lisa", and 'lLetty
Lythe, the movie star". Since all are impossible but Letty Lythe, Chet is forced
to fake a love affair with her. Soon the whole town is talking and all of the
girls are falling in love with Chet and her jealousy leaks out. All goes well
with Mr. Simmons' plan until Letty comes to the neighborhood theatre to make
a personal appearance-accompanied by her fiance, who happens to be a prize
fighter. Chester, poor thing, weathers the storm and wins Ethel in the end.
