SE , 34 gt 1 9 2 9 L E C H O 1 9 2 9 K Senior Class History It is with the deepest regret, but also with the realization that we have gained some- thing worthwhile, that we look back upon the four happy years spent in Naples High School. Now that they are about to come to a close, we are beginning to perceive that some of the most delightful experiences of our lives were lived in those four years. What is new about a class history? Is it the same old story of entering the portals of the school four years before and completing year by year the prescribed course of study, until our teachers and our Board of Education are ready to hand us our diplomas? Or is the unfolding of the delightful panorama of life: the making of new friendshipsg the acquiring of new and higher idealsg the thrill of victories achieved and the despair of struggles lost? As historian of the Class of 1929 of Naples High School, l could carry you back to September 1925 when on a beautiful sunny day, we registered as Freshmen. We were new, our principal was new, three other members of the faculty were new. New studies, new problems! l have no idea of our numbers. Perhaps there were twenty in the class and perhaps there were forty. Suffice to say, we took our place in the schoolg we labored faithfullyg we passed on to the Sophomore class at the end of the year- with a wider experience. The second year saw a deadly toll. Regents examinations, school examinations and other problems seemed to daunt many of our class. Une by one the weaker ones fell by the way-side. But with each loss, our ardor strengthened. We realized that school life was not a bed of roses and that those who would survive, must prove themselves fit. Our classmates took part in each and every school activity. No athletic team, but which had its quota of 1929 cohorts. No scholastic endeavor which failed to count its success due to the efforts of 1929. And with june, we entered the realm of the upper-classman. We were now Juniors. We had entered upon the last half of our journey. New responsibilities were ours. VVe were not content to merely follow in the footsteps of the Seniors. We wished to blaze new trails. Did we hesitate at difliculties? Not so, but each problem challenged our capabilities and our abilities. The Junior "Prom" was the crowning feature of our Junior year. It marked the departure of the Seniors and made us realize that we were now entering the last lap. Now at last we are Seniors. What can we say? Simply this and nothing more. VVe were never content to do what other classes had done, in the same way and with the same mediocre success. We Wanted to be and always were distinctive. So this final year sees a new enterprise in Naples High School. The first edition of L'Echo is a child of our collective brains. A big undertaking and a successful one. Dear schoolmates, as you look over this book in future years, may you give a thought to the many happy moments we have spent together and may this book help you recall them. Our troubles now seem large, but time, that all effacing element, will soften them, and the fine friendshipsg the splendid associations with high-minded instructors and our happy school days will remain as some of the sweetest memories of our lives. And none will cease to be proud of the fact that they were members of the Class of 1929, Naples High School. E, M, W, l21l

3 1929 L'ECHO 1929 E Our Class-Ten Years Hence My friend and I were leisurely enjoying afternoon tea at my summer home, Woodville, at the head of Canandaigua Lake. Conversation lagged and in despera- tion we turned on the radio. Just as the "Economical Fouru, as the Cornish Quartette is better known-finished "The Bells of St. Marys", we heard the genial announcer describe the program for the evening at the Naples Theater. He did not go into detail but assured his listeners that it would be worthwhile to attend. VVe jumped into 'AHiram",-'KJim" Richards' ancient Ford which was doing duty as a taxi between the metropolis and the summer colony-and in a few moments were entering the lobby of the theater. At that moment a Hne limousine of French make stopped at the curb and two beautifully dressed ladies descended. We could hardly believe our eyes. If they were not Adah Miller and Eleanor Cleveland, now happily married to foreign noblemen and home for a short visit. We stepped to the ticket booth and nearly fainted when we recognized our old school mate, Berniece Cull as the one selling the tickets. The show had already started and gradually our eyes got accustomed to the dim light of the auditorium. The great organ boomed and swelled and we looked to see who was playing it. Lo and behold, it was none other than skillful Winona Graves. We had always known that she was a born musician but now we were certain. We were comfortably seated and had just commented on the beauty of the playhouse when the vaudeville began. Tripping daintily the newest dance steps of the season, two slender elf-like girls charmed the vast audience. They looked familiar and we recog- nized "Casey" Krape and "Corda" Guile, who ten years before had set "Chefs" Locust Lodge crowd wild by their skillful terpischorean efforts. But more surprises were to follow, for when the acrobatic act appeared, "Jim" Richards and Alberta Warner appeared in a balancing act which was really marvelous. They were happily married and seemed to be enjoying their work. We appreciated all the vaudeville acts, as the fact that four of our old school mates were appearing was indeed a surprise. As usual the news reel followed the stage presentations. Here in quick succession appeared important figures in the world's news. We nearly fell from our chairs when one of Uncle Sam's battleships steamed across the screen and Commander "Bun" Misel was on the bridge. Gee, he wasn't an admiral yet but he seemed to be on his way. And then scenes near home were shown. A 'model farm house in Italy Valley and who was that flaxen haired matron in the door-way, if not Dortha Shay C--J watching the twins playing in the door-yard. A hospital scene flashed on the screen. It appears that the Germans and Russians were at war and who is that pretty nurse? My, if it isn't Margaret Wolvin. Again a foreign scene but this time the streets of Paris, showing the monster crowd welcoming the reigning prima donna of grand opera. And believe it or not, if it isn't Helen Jennings. Still in Paris but this time at the Academy of Science where pictures are being shown of the experiments of Dr. Weld E. Conley, Jr., well-known bacteriologist. And back again to the dear old U. S. A. we are shown the "Daisy Chain" at Vassar College. And who is that stern lady in the foreground unless it is Mary Steinmetz, now dean of women at that famous college. And the speaker at the com- mencement exercises happened to be the "Honorable" Ruth llflaxfield, now in the congress. A big industrial plant with "Cy" Fox as manager is shown. But some were missing. On our way out we stopped in the "Candy Shoppe" for a chocolate milk and we noticed that the place was being managed by Irene Chapman, now an energetic young business woman. And looking across the street at the rival theater of the Naples, we noticed in bright lights the name of "Eva Wohlschlegeln as the mezzo-soprano in the big act. Naples 1929 had made good. I22l
