Senior Class Will
Realizing that our school life is swiftly ebbing, and that soon, all of the present
mortal remains of what has been heretofore the Class of 1929 of Naples High School,
will be scattered to the four winds of the heavens and that our class willvbe but a
beautiful memory in the minds of our teachers, we, individually and collectively,
separately and conglomerately, believing ourselves to be of sound mind and sounder
bodies, do solemnly declare and swear that this is our last will and testament.
I.-l. To the Juniors: We give our honorable name of Seniors. This honor is a
difficult one to carry. Grave responsibilities and graver privileges accompany it. Never
fail in the one nor grant freedom in the other.
2. To the Sophomores: We tender our scholastic ability. Not with the hope
that it can ever be equalled, but with the hope that it will be a source of never failing
3. To the Freshmen: VVe bequeath our dignity. Goodness knows, Freshmen,
you need it. Tall, gangling and awkward, you display your newness everywhere.
Take on the cloak we give you. Aspire and achieve.
II.-l. I, Eleanor Cleveland, will my ability ??? to bluff the teachers to Helen
Maxfield, trusting that she will be more successful than I have been.
2. I, Weld Conley, do give unto 'fTWink" Guile some of my six feet, two inches
and hope that he will attain the peak of perfection with it.
3. I, Irene Chapman, bequeath my prevailing sickness when called upon in class,
to Alice Capron for she seems to "go on forever".
4. I, Bernice Cull, do tender to Kathryn Lafler some of my seriousness. She
certainly can use a lot of it.
I 5. I, Margaret Wolvin do give to Marjorie Lyon, my gum chewing ability,
although it 'might be a useless gift to such an expert.
6. I, Winona Graves, leave to "Jelly" West my silence. Goodness knows, she
needs a lot of it.
7. I, Eva Wohlschlegel, do give unto "Dot" Otto my executive ability. The
indications are that she will find many uses for it.
8. I, Lucile Guile, having been slim, even "skinny", do give unto Mary Cleland,
that quality, for she will profit by it.
9. I, James Richards, bequeath to "Heine" Haynes my rough and ready ways and
my eternally optimistic nature.
10. I, Alberta Warner, always appearing innocent, although not always so, do
turn over that quality to Jean Putnam. .
ll. I, Carl Misel, sorrel top extraordinary, turn over a portion of my red hair to
lVI1l. Muehe. It will be a fitting companion for his "temperament".
12. I, Ruth Maxfield, having no longer any need for my smiles, given them to
"Becky" Woodruff. Here's hoping that will be more potent with the -male sex, than I.
13. I, Ada Miller, give my punctuality to Charlie Briglin. Perhaps he will be
more appreciated if he has that quality.
14. I, Carolyn L. Krape do will to Carol Holcomb, my modesty and retiring
disposition. Not that she needs it but-
l5. I, Dortha Shay, give my hair-dressing ability to Martha Corwin.
16. We, Mary Steinmetz, Helen Jennings, and Cyril Fox, join hands in turning
over to the Sophomores our earnestness of purpose in school.
III.-1. And we do appoint, without bond, Conrad C. Muehe, Principal of
Naples High School as executor and administrator of this will, trusting to his integrity
and honor that all its provisions will be faithfully carried out.
The Class of 1929-C. H. M.

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.
