T. P. Delventhal Paul E. Hoy,
We, the students of Napoleon High School,
are deeply greatful to the Board of Education for
their foresight and judgment in dealing with the
many problems which confronted them during the
year. The results of their efforts will become evident
in the citizens of tomorrow.

lf, four years ago, we were told. 4ALook closely at the man on one
side of you for only one half of you will be here to graduate in l943." we
would think the person was indeed telling us a farce. Well, four years have
passed and from a relatively large class which entered these portals one fall day
in l939 only one half of that sum is to receive diplomas. Along with Uncle
Sam. high wages of industry have thinned the ranks of our class.
I think it can be truthfully said that the class of '43 is the first war-
trained class to disembark from this school and step into the dark world beyond,
fully prepared to face it. We have been drilled in every essential thing needed
by the citizens of tomorrow. ln the future it can truly be said that the class of
l94'a will play its part in winning the war and the everlasting peace to follow.

Vifhen We entered as freshmen We looked upon the four years ahead of
us as a long period of time: but now, almost overnight, we Gnd ourselves at
the end of our junior year.
These three years have been filled with the pleasure of studying and
working together. with participation in the various school activities. and
with the -joys of friendships formed as we grew up together. It would be well
for each of us. looking back over our first three years, to check our course with
our aims and goals. before beginning our senior year.
From now on We should take our activities and studies more seriously
because of world conditions. 'AService" has become the keynote for most activ-
ities in our country at this time. May each member of the class of l944 be
alert to whatever service he or she can give.

The class of '45 has attained a part of the high school life of which it
has long dreamed. The Sophomore Class maintained a high standard of scholar-
ship and took part in the following extra-curricular activities: Hi-Y. C. R.,
P. F. A., F. H. A., Glee Club and the newly formed Victory Corps.
This year the class has taken a part in the athletic program. The boys
have gained regular positions on the football and basketball teams, and the
girls have participated in basketball and intramural sports.
The Sophomore Class sincerely believes that it has contributed its share
to the high school activities of the year, and is looking forward to the school
years to come.

September 7, 1943 was the date of our entrance into high school. A
milestone in our lives had been reached. We were freshman in high School.
There were ninety members in our class, all enterting school with a zest for new
adventure, Our class was well represented in the band, the football team, and
several of the boys played on the reserve basketball team, This year there was a
special interest taken in the Glee Club and many of our members took part in
this activity and also in the operetta, UH. M. S. Pinaforef' Many of our mem-
bers took part in the Girl Reserves and the Jr. Red Cross. Our class aided the
war effort by buying war Stamps and bonds, by helping in the scrap drive and
some of our members joined the Victory Corps. Our grades were good and our
standing was high.
Vv'e have enjoyed our Hrst year in high school very much and we look
forward with sincere pleasure to the three which follow. We shall strive to ach-
ieve new goals and we shall leave school with the satisfaction of having done
our job well.

The Napoleon School Band has again completed another very success'
ful season, in spite of losing the services of drill master Mr. John Kapple. Mr.
Kapple left last October for a position in our armed services. He didn't, how-
ever, leave the spot at all vacant, for Mr. "Mike" Lombardi, able instructor and
band director, at once took over and continued the fine work.
Besides furnishing inspiring entertainment for the football and basket'
ball games, the band performed for many delightful concert programs.
Not loosing many of its performers, the band, next fall, should again
attain the true greatness that it has built up throughout the past years.

For the nrst time in several years, Napoleon High School had a boys'
glee club. When Miss Habegger issued a call for volunteers, some 92 boys ref
sponded. From these, she chose a group of about 65 boys who comprised the
boys' glee club.
Many public appearances were made. Among them were our parts in
the operetta and the mid-winter concert, appearances before Kiwanis, Farmers
lnstitute, and ather Various meetings of farm and business mens organizations
held in the auditorium.
Several quartets and small ensembles were formed which entertained
the school and community on different occasions throughout the school year.
The High School Orchestra under the very capable direction of Mr.
Lombardi has completed another successful season.
They appeared at many meetings and banquets during the year. As
usual, they furnished music for the Junior and Senior Class plays and toolt
part in the commencement exercises.
This year the regular practice period was changed from fortyefive
mniutes to an hour and fifteen minutes. They were given one period a week in-
stead of practicing after school hours. This extra time was a great help and the
orchestra really got things done this year.

The Ciirls' Cilee Club, under the leadership of Miss Christine Habegger
has progressed rapidly this year. The enrollment included sixty-one girls, all
of whom are ambitious and perservering.
In February the Girls' Glee Club with the Boys' Glee Club presented a
program in the auditorium. It was given as one of Napoleon's series of Sunday
On April 16, the two groups gave the famous Gilbert and Sullivan
operetta, HH. M. S. Pinaforen.
A sextette, chosen from the Glee Club girls, made many appearances before
the public. "The Three Old Maids", a novelty trio of girls, were also called
upon for several repeat performances.
From the comments of citizens it is evident that Miss Habegger has
produced an entertaining and talented group of girls.

The F. H. A, is an organization which has completed its fourth year
in our school. The theme of the club this year was 'Live for Victory."
Early in the year thirty-two childrens' nightgowns were made for the
Red Cross. Shortly after Christmas, work was begun on ZOO arm bands. The
iunior and senior girls of the club have taken the Red Cross nutrition course
which later will entitle them to enter the canteen course. The club purchased a
fifty dollar war bond. As you can see the club has done much for the war effort
this year and we intend to do twice as much next year.

Working along with the war effort, the Hi-Y under the able eye of Mr.
Heckler has again stepped out and taken the initiative in service and social
need throughout the school. In confirming this statement the club sponsored
several war drives and helped with drives sponsored by the school. The club
has provided covers for all magazines coming into the library. Also in the course
of the year, it has played host to the District Hi-Y Convention,
Socially, the club is outstanding. It sponsored all of the dances through-
out the year. With its interesting programs it provided many happy hours for
its members. Many citizens benefited from the club.

up to its code of service. Clothing was both purchased and donated for needy
students. One family was 'made happier by a Christmas basket, The club has
also been active in Junior Red Cross work doing such things as sewing, keeping
a scrapbook, and a soldiers address file.
A joint Hi-Y-G. R. hayride was held, In addition to this several other
parties were held throughout the year.
Forty new members were inducted in February. The girls were initiated
and later attended an impressive candlelight ceremony.
Two Girl Reserves members will again be sent to Camp Walbridge
this summer where they will receive new ideas to bring back to the club,
The Girl Reserve members will keep the candles burning and the code
alive in N. H. S. during the coming year.

The School Notes, which appeared weekly in Napoleon newspapers,
were again edited by the senior English class, headed by Mr. Johnson.
ln selecting articles, the staff was careful to cover all important events
and activities in the school. and to limit the notes to subjects which would
interest both the public and the students,
Besides maintaining a source of information for the readers, the News
Staff also gained valuable experience in journalism.

Primarily their existence is for safety. It is their duty to assist as well as
report the injury or illness of any student. Their secondary duty is to help
visitors find their Way. A third duty is to keep the halls clear of students. Other
duties are: running errands, checking bulletin boards. and seeing that locker
doors are closed.

ln the fall of l94l the Junior Red Cross was organized to further the
schools' war efforts. lts membership includes pupils from the Lutheran, Cath-
olic and public schools. The work of the Chapter is coordinated through ex-
ecutive committees chosen from the high school members.
This year the Work of salvage concentrated on the collectiions of tin
cans, silk hose and rags.
A construction class repaired toys and made hospital supplies.
News letters were prepared and sent at Christmas time to the man in
service, who had attended Napoleon high school. The club, too, is responsible
for the school's service flag.
The Chapter is especially proud of its book, "The School at VJar." an
entry in the Gold Brick Contest. Members and faculty advisors supervised and
assembled this picture of our schools program during war time.

Pifty-six wins out of 85 debates. This is the admirable record of the
varsty debate squad for l943. The debaters this year participated in the most
extensive and successful season in the history of the school.
During the season, Napoleon debaters participated in a total of one hun-
dred and fifty debates and gained many fine records. The A squad went through
the Delta Triangle undefeated to win the meet: eight diHierent teams turned in
undefeated cards in five tournaments and last, and most important, the varsity
sqaud tied for second place in the State District Speech League at Findlay, which
placed Napoleon among the ten top schools in the state.
Medals of different types were awarded to seven letterment who return-
ed from last year's squad and ten letters were given to new members. The win-
ners of the intramural debating, Norbert Howe and Harry Laremore, each re-
ceived a medal for their splendid work. Harry also had the distinction of achiev-
ing the finest individual record of the season by winning seventeen out of twenty-
one debates and thus attained an average of over .800.
Vxfith only three debaters being lost by graduation this year, Mr. Hawv-
er and the debaters are looking forward to a very successful season next year.
They plan to compete with some of the largest and toughest schools in the
state as they build an even better record than the admirable one established by
the debate squads this year.
The N Club is a group of high school boys who have won varsity let-
ters. Boys who have won letters in football, basketball, track, tennis or who
have been managers of the various sports are eligible for membership.

This year, Mr. .lohnson's speech class again sent students out to en-
tertain the public at meetings at different clubs and organizations. Besides many
individual speakers, there were two large groups of entertainers. the Stephen
Foster Singers and the Moronian Nlinstrel. The groups carried a heavy schedule
throughout the year. The Morons, from left to right are Parsimmon, Gwendell
Van Twillkie, Bottleneck, Sassafrass, the lnterlocuter. Sideswipe, Rev. Drinkf
water, Jughead, and l-lambone. Miss Habegger played for the minstrel.
Two groups from the glee clubs, directed by Miss Habegger, were also
busy entertaining the public. They were the Erie Canal Boys and the girls'
sextet. These groups showed considerable talent, and became very popular as
singers in this community.

Although Coach Nelson started his 1942 football season with seven
lettermen, he faced a mighty task in building a winning team for Napoleon
High School. How well he succeeded can be gleaned from the record-seven
wins, one tie and one loss. The lack of reserve power handicapped the Wildcats
all season but they carried on in grand style and bowed to only one, the Defiance
Bulldogs, powerhouse of the league.
The seven lettermen to greet Coach Nelson at the start of the season
were: Dick Motter, Ronnie Hefflinger, Larry Wiechers, Max Minnich, Gus
Gurtzweiler, Marty Luebker and Tommy Boyd, all seniors. Don lngle, Bob
Foster, Bill Westhoven, Jack Fruchey, Whitey Plassman and Fritz Leifer were
others of the starting eleven.
The l942 Wildcat eleven, while failing to win the championship, can
be classed among the best teams in Napoleon High School grid history and a
major portion of their success must go to Coach Cliff Nelson, who worked
patiently and diligently with the boys through many long hours of practice.

into pay dirt. Between the thirty yard stripes everything happened.
Napoleon 14-Perrysburg 0
The Wildcats reached their peak in this game. They were a dream
team as they seemed to do every thing right. Perrysburg never had a chance.
The line play was outstanding in this contest.
Napoleon 27-Wauseon O
Scoring once in the first three minutes and twice more before the half
ended, the Wildcats had little trouble in snaring this one. The Reserves
again saw plenty of action.
Napoleon 12-Bryan 6
Yep! They do'od it. lt was a glorious day for the Wildcats as they
came roaring from behind to whip the Bears and break an eight year Jinx.
The field was dry.

Napoleon 4 7-Defiance 70
The Wildcats opened the season at Defiance and after a brilliant fir
half in which they led the Bulldogs most of the way, they wilted and com
pletely fell an easy victim to the up-river team.
Napoleon 27-Wauseon 31
Playing for the first time before the home town fans the Cats started
out like they really meant business. After holding a 7 point lead at the
half they again folded up and the Indians clipped them
Napoleon 39-Liberty Center ZZ
Determined to get a victory, the Wildcats held together long enough
to outscore the Tigers and break into the win column.
Napoleon 40-Bryan 19
Jumping all over the Bears with the opening whistle the Wildcats
coasted to an easy victory.
Napoleon 22-Pettisville 29
The big Fulton County team snapped the Wildcats winning streak
at two games by coming from behind to win.
Napoleon 2 7-Montpelier 3 9
The visiting Locomotives chugged into an early lead and the Cats
could never catch up. The Cats were weak in their passing
Napoleon 46-Bowling Green 43
The Cats pulled a big surprise by winning this one and on the Bob
cats floor, too. Will wonders never cease??
Napoleon 51-Wauseon 63
In a wild and free scoring game the Wildcats were again clipped by
the Indians with Keller setting a new league record of 37 points
Napoleon 29-Montpelier 46
The Wildcats are enjoying another losing streak. The Locomotn ts
rolled over the Cats with ease after the first quarter.
Napoleon 25-Defiance 37
Defiance again the victor, but the Cats put up a valiant Hght until
the final gun.
Napoleon 33-Liberty Center 18
The Cats were really bad in this game, but were lucky in the fact that
the Tigers were even worse. Passing was off and basket shooting went wild.
Napoleon 3 3-Bryan 3 9
Napoleon reached an all-time low as they lost this one. None of the
boys could hit.
Napoleon 3 0-Defiance 49
The Wildcats drew Defiance, the league champions, in the dis'-
trict tournament and bowed for the third time. This was the end of the
trail for the Cats, a trail that was rough with many pitfalls, but that's
water over the dam. The years will wipe away the sting of the disappoint-
ments of this disastrous season. And with this thought we bid adieu, and
say good luck and success to those who follow.
Napoleon High School is the proud owner of one of the army's best
physical conditioners, an obstacle course. This course is situated behind the
central school building in the old canal bed. It is approximately one hundred
yards long and consists of two ten foot barriers, a shoulder conditioner, a pit,
and several objects that the boys use for tumbling.
Coach Andrews, physical director of the high school, plans to add new
and altogether different obstacles in the near future. By co-operating with Coach
Andrews, Napoleon High School should be able to set up one of the most ef-f
ficient courses in the state.
2041, paw 1-ifzddezm?
OW, more than ever before, athletics are
playing an important role in the Welfare of
human life. These are dark days we are living in,
as the war lords roam far and wide over the earth,
and it is essential that something remain out of the
chaos to serve as a builder-upper of people's morale.
To this end athletics are ever Working.
Athletics sponsored in our schools and colleges
are doing wonders as morale builders as well as build-
ing alert minds and strong bodies. The lessons learn-
ed from organized athletics are invaluable.
As a morale builder athletics have no peer. lt is
estimated that at least 7570 or more of the reading
matter now being sent to our boys in the armed
forces here and abroad consists of sports material.
Therefore. it is our fervent prayer that athletics
be kept alive in the years to come. For by "keeping
athletics alive you help keep America alive."

Class POP QCIJ
At the 1953 reunion of the class of '43 held at the famous restaurant
"Leon and Keich's" owned by Leon Genuit and Carlton Dietrich, we saw many
of our old classmates. First of all, we came across Joan Heilman who had be-
come very rich from the royalties received on a new device she had invented to
enable students to get to school on time. Immediately following her was Clay-
ton Vorwerk, the renowned "man about town."
Our first stop was at the table of the famous photographer, Bob Kniffin,
and his wife, who had formerly been Carmen Bond. At the same table was
Harold Thompson, head of the Elite Plating Works, As we stood there talking,
Virgil Fruth drove up in his new Cadillac. Following him closely were the two
master mechanics, Virgil Cupp and Bill Perry, who had the job of pushing the
car from one place to the next.
James Smith, the master of ceremonies, was proposing a toast to Rosie
the Riveter and Winnie the Welder, or, as we knew them in our school days,
Valeta Wittenberg and Marjorie Armstrong. The Hrst speaker on the program
was Don Stough who lectured on higher mathematics. Then in a lighter mood
Marilyn Andrew came onto the floor and showed us a few jitterbug steps which
she would be glad to teach you in ten easy lessons at the Andrews Dance School.
Her two adept instructors were June Delventhal and Mary Ellen Mengerink.
Joan Rieger had been voted Hpin-up" girl for all the leading colleges in
the country, She had become a professional model and chose Ronnie Hefflinger
as her agent. Max Minnich, a famous athlete from Napoleon, had joined the
"Flying Tigers", the best professional football team in the country. The excel-
lent coach for the team was Larry Wiechers, another N. H. S. athlete.
Walt Meyer had joined the Bingling Brothers Circus as a human skelton.
The star of the act was Vivian Mahler, who flew thru the air with the greatest
of ease and landed-well!
The title of "Three Smart Girls" goes to Rose Anne Howe, Norma Krat-
zer, and Evelyn Lange, who had all become famous executives in the field of
finance. The head of the company, Gerald Gurtzweiler, with the help of his
"better half", Betty Creager, ran the entire company and they lost only one
million dollars a year compared to the usual two million,
Three more of our old classmates had moved to Defiance. Pat Leonhardt
was studying agriculture on a farm just out of Defiance. Margie Fruchey had
picked her home on the north side and Laura Hockman was living in the south
end of Defiance.
Dave Hockenberry and his wife, the former Lois Sworden, had moved to
a farm just outside of Napoleon and devoted their time to farming and keeping
their Ford in good running order.
Dick Harrington had gone into the bakery business and now had a chain
of bakeries clear across the United States. Tom Spencer and Eddie Hancock
bought the two Napoleon theaters and managed them, besides supervising thea-
ters in Defiance, Wauseon, Bowling Green and Holgate,
Many Napoleon High graduates had gone into various branches of the
service and received high ratings. Among these were Dick Motter, Tom Boyd,
Charles Buckmaster and Bill Perry.
Carolyn Casteel had opened a new store in Napoleon called Casteel's dry-
goods Store. The bookkeeper she hired was Buzz Farison, who kept all his
books in trigoncmetry so if he was Hred no one could read them. Don Gunter
revolutionized model "A" Fords so that they were now called model
Junior Harmon and Ernie Rosebrock had gone into the truck farming business
and had made a success of it. They supervised while others did the work. Mar-
ilyn Reimund had a permanent job as cashier at the State Theatre and had
hired Lloma Jean Riggs to make out her reports and keep the books.
The famous dress salon, "La Petite", was operated by Jean Krauss and
managed by Helen Kurtz. The bookwork was done by Norma Shelt and their
mannequins were Gladys Walker and Vivian Barnett. Claribel Fillinger had
become a famous concert pianist in New York.
New York's greatest Hnancier is Fritz fBaronl Pohlman. Lute Genuit
is so famous that his high school nick-name Hthe little genius" has remained.
Bob Fleagle and Eldin Imbrock had devised a new system by which they could
farm with out land, Marty Luebker had become a debate coach at Lake High
School. The Wellington Hotel had a new manager, John Dietrich, another of
our old classmates. A special subway had been built from Napoleon to Holgare
for the use of Rolf Oberhaus and Jim Curdes. Bill Westhoven had become man-
ager of the Detroit Tigers. Don Pacey spoke to millions of people daily. He sold
popcorn and soft drinks at the stadium. The Stockade was owned and operated
by Kenneth Ashenfelter, but had been redecorated by Leona Miller, Glendora
Blair and Hilda Smith.
Bob Dille and Martha Dietrich had opened a super gas station where
everything was done automatically. XVe discovered national speed typist rating
went to Betty Myers. Martha Smith was acting as her agent. Betty Bernius had
opened a new diner in south Napoleon and Rosemary Davis helped her manage
it. "Roll Away", a new skating rink, had been opened by Marcella Hoffman
and Edras Allen.
Rose Marie Reiser and Phyllis Bressler opened a beauty salon and creat-
ed distinctive coiffures, for the aristocrats of Napoleon. Henry Rothenberger
was now manager of Wesche's Furniture Store. The Napoleon High School
Machine Shop had been taken over by Bill Hoover, Raymond Dachenhaus, and
Russell Agler. The Charles Co. had sold out to Howard Dehnbostel and is now
known as the Howard Co. Stores.
Navy Tom had broken with his girl.
After ignoring several letters requesting
the return of her photograph, one came
threatening to complain to the captain.
Deciding to squelch her for all time,
he borrowed all the pictures of girls
available on the ship, sending them to
her in a large bundle with the follow-
ing note: "Pick yours out, I've forgotten
what you look like."

H. Thompson came to the city and
got a job as janitor in a girls' boarding

across him and asked, "Why didn't you
come around Friday for your pay,
"WhatI Do I get wages, too?"
J. Heilman was hurrying to school,
and as she hurried, she prayed. "'Dear

Under the direction of Miss Habegger, the well-known Gilbert 8
Sullivan operetta M. S. Pinafore" was presented April 14 and 16, with
more than 100 students participating. It was very successful, and afforded much
entertainment to the large crowds that attended the performance both nights.
The curtain rose on the crew of the H. M. S. Pinafore getting ready for
a tour of inspection by Sir Joseph Porter, K. C. B., Admiral of the British
Navy. Among them is Ralph Rackstraw, a handsome lad, though only a com-
mon seaman. He is in love with Josephine, the captain's beautiful daughter.
who will have nothing to do with a sailor so far below her rank.
Sir Joseph arrives, surrounded by his favorite cousin, Hebe, and all his
admiring sisters, cousins and aunts. He hints that the real reason for his visit
is to seek Josephine's hand in marriage. Ralph hears of this, and is inspired to
tell the haughty Josephine of his honest love for her. She spurns him at first, but
when he is about to take his life, she confesses that she loves him too. They plan
to elope, with the help of the crew and the female relatives. Unfortunately
Dick Deadeye, the villian of the crew, overhears the plot and tells the captain.
They succeed in stopping the lovers, and in reprimanding Ralph. Captain Cor-
coran uses a very strong word. Sir Joseph hears him, and sends him to his cabin,
immediately thereafter sending Ralph to a dungeon. Little Buttercup, a poor
bumboat woman, who has always loved the captain, confesses a crime of long
ago, when she had exchanged Ralph and the captain in childhood. This changes
Ralph's position from that of common seaman to Captain of the Pinafore, and
Captain Corcoran from captain to common seaman. After this severe drop in
Josephine's rank, Sir Joseph refuses to marry her, and Ralph and Josephine are
finally united. The captain's low rank now enables him to ask Little Buttercup
to be his wife, and Sir Joseph has to be content with his adoring cousin, Hebe.
The curtain falls with the prospect of a triple wedding and the H. M. S. Pin-
afore sails on.

This year's Senior Class Play, "Tiger House," was very unusual and
different from any of the class plays of the past, Throughout the entire play
the feeling of mystery and uncertainty prevailed. The scenery and setting was
very eHective and appropriate.
Erma Lowrie, a young business girl inherited a fortune from her Aunt
Sylvia, but in order to inherit the estate it was necessary for her to live in
"Mystery Manor" for two years. It seemed that the house was very definitely
haunted by the mysterious happenings that went on there. But in the end the
culprit was found and it was discovered that he had been trying to scare every-
one away from the house so he could search for a diamond necklace that was
hidden somewhere on the premises.
The play was double cast and was held on May 20th and 21st in the
High School Auditorium. On both nights the audience was very appreciative
and attentive throughout the entire play. A great deal of credit for the success
of the play goes to our capable director, Mr. Johnson, and his assistant, Mr.
Heckler. Presentations were made to both Mr. Johnson and Mr. Heckler after
the last performance.
