Freshman Class History
It has been said of the Freshmen, "They have no history." Supporting this
assertion, facts have been produced purporting to show that they are so young that
they can do nothing worthy of recording, and as history is a record of past eventsg
therefore they have no history. Let us smash that assertion into atoms. Even
though we have not learned the logic usually gained in the study of that erudite
subject-Geometry-under the tutelage of our honored principal, we will give facts
and from those facts draw conclusions, so that even those most jealous of our mighty
performances will have to admit that the Freshmen do have a class history-and that it
is a glorious record.
joyous of heart and light of mind, twenty-eight youthful looking lads and lassies
gamboled into the halls and corridors of Naples High School last September. Were
they not to be seated among the great and the near-great-the Sopho-mores, the
Juniors and the Seniors? Obediently and willingly and with unusual cheerfulness
they fell into the accustomed routine of the school. And within them their hearts
waxed warm and they radiated good will to all with whom they had contact. Were
they not now of the elect-even as the Seniors in the back rows?
Time flew, as it has a habit of doing. The first quarterly examinations were
given and the results posted A mighty shifting and shuffling followed and when the
disorder occasioned had subsided, it was found that most of the honor seats were
occupied by the Freshmen. And the end of the second quarter and the end of the
thir quarter saw the same thing occurring. At last those haughty upper-classmen
and the learned faculty had to admit that the scholastic attainments of the Freshmen
were far above the ordinary.
Not only did our collective scholastic ability jolt many of the skeptics, but when
the coaches issued a call for cross country candidates, four stalwarts of 1932 answered
the call and two of these men gained state wide honors before the season was over.
To Eckert and Warner of our class came honors which few boys attain. They not
only made the Naples High School cross country team, but they helped that team
Win the sectional championship. And then being picked to represent the section they
helped the sectional team win the state championship. That is a record which 1932
set up-and we believe it will stand for a long time. "D'uzer" Doolittle and Wallace
were on the school team also and did their share in winning the school meets.
And when the girls' basketball team needed a manager, efficient and peppy "Dot"
Otto responded. She was a big success, not only as a player but also as an adminis-
trator in the matter of making up the schedule and handling arrangements for making
Not only in school athletics, and scholastic work, did 1932 shine, but also in every
other activity such as assembly programs, campaigns to raise athletic funds, the band,
the orchestra and the chorus, the Freshmen took valiant part. They have been leaders.
True, our history has not been long, but it has been glorious. It presages a brilliant
The long road stretches ahead of us. We have achieved, but our achievements
are but a beginning. Already the school depends upon us for leadership and we know
that we will never fail. Have we not chosen for our motto, "Nil Desperandumn
which translated tells us clearly and certainly that "nothing daunts us." Our work
is ahead of us and not behind us. Our ambitions are high and our spirit is one of
unconquerable courage. What more do we need to make us go through the remaining
three years of our high school course-bringing to our school and to our class honors
far above the ordinary. Let us not fail. Let our first year be but a promise of the
greater things to come.
