There could be no one more deserving of this honor which is ours to give than the Mothers and Dads, who by their interest in us, their sacriiices for us and their love of us have helped us to attain this first crossroad on the way to success: who have in- spired us by their example of courage, faith, patience and cheerfulness: and who have helped us overcome obstacles in thc way of our development. ' A-em? i x -BUCKEYE- Foreword "Time makes many things seem sacred". The Buckeye has become one of these honored traditions to Napoleon High School. Making a record of the history of our school year has been an enjoyable task-fpleasant when we found that there was so much to include-disappointing when we had to leave so much unrecorded. We have endeavored to put down something of the fraternal spirit prevailing in the halls of N. l-l. S, Where we have laughed it has been only with friend- liness. Where We have praised, it has been with na- tural pride in the achievements of our fellow stu- . dents. For your approval and pleasure the Senior class of l938 presents this-the twenty-second edi- X tion of the Buckeye. , ' I , .

P. Delventhal W. C. Chubb Dr. J. H. Moden The central force around which our school revolves is the Board of Ed- ucation. Not only by taking care of our immediate Wants but also by making consistent efforts to provide for our future needs, they have made Napoleon High School one of the most progressive schools of its size They have procured for us the movie-projector by which education may be advanced through the movies in an entertaining way. The School Board is responsible for the introduction of two new courses-the Vocational Agri- culture and the Vocational Home Economics Course working on the Smith- Hughes plan, To the members of the Board of Education who have donated their tirm and efforts for us, We wish to express our sincere thanks. -BUCKEYE4-Q Cleon Dubs Brillhart Albright Collcgc lfllb, A, B.: Zeta Oincgi lfpsilon: Bowling Green Coach l0l6-lfli N.

W' Sv .ig NS Musical Instructor them. The Faculty As We See Them There are many reasons why the Seniors of N. H. S. regret leaving high school and one of the greatest of these is that We must make our final farewells to those who have guided us through the most important four years of our lives. They have been sympathetic in helping us solve our problems and have seemed to take a special interest in the welfare of each and every student. They have taught us as much by the examples which they have set as by their classroom instruction. They have given us counsel and guidance during our high school years and more than that they have given us their friendship. We. the graduating class of 1938, Wish to take this opportuntiy to offer to them our sincere thanks, CAROLYN WONES Ohio Wesleyan, A B l931 Alpha Delta Pi.

President - Norman Lymangrover Vice President - - Donald Andrew Secretary - - Mary Woodward Treasurer - Amelia Busch Among the reasons why the year 1938 will be remembered in the annals of N. H. S. lies in the fact that the student council was launched. We are espec- ially proud that the agitation for the movement came from the student body it- self after letters written by Victor Bassett appeared in the "Letters to the Ed- itor" column in the School Notes. The council came as a result of the ever- growing desire for expansion of the social program of the school. Under the careful supervision of Mr. Oldfather a constitution was adopted and rules were made governing the use of tennis courts and the treatment of school property. The members have accepted their responsibilities eagerly and we are sure that the Student Council will play an important part in our school in the future.

Now that we have reached the long desired end we pause a moment to look back over the race we have just completed. We entered the iirst lap of the "race of higher education" in 1934. Dur- ing this first year we spent much time adjusting ourselves to the newness of our situation. We were honor participants and proud of it. Besides concentrating on scholastic achievements, we took part in outside activities such as the Glee clubs, Girl Reserve and Hi-Y clubs, Band, Orchestra, Triangular and of course all the sports. The second lap saw us sprinting more vigorously. We had a previous rec- ord to uphold and more goals to reach. The third bend found us experienced sprinters and quite capable of hand- ling the duties which fall upon Juniors. We again had representatives in thc various organizations, sports and clubs and many of the members of our class had leading roles in the Operetta presented by the glee clubs. The junior class also staged a very successful play, displaying both dramatic and financial abilities. Our junior year was climaxed by the Junior-Senior Prom, a gala farewell to the Seniors. T We entered the fourth and final lap of the race with high hopes and eager- ness for the year and its contents which stretched invitingly before us. As Seniors we took the place of honor and lived up to it. The outstanding achievement of our Senior year in the way of sports was the record made by the basketball team which was composed almost entirely of seniors. Senior boys also took part in many of the other activities, winning glory for themselves as well as for the school. The Senior class was also well represented on the debate squad and the Glee Clubs which took part in the Henry County Music Festival and the local May Festival. A newly added feature during our senior year was the Student Council suggested by a member of our class which proved to be very successful. The last few days of our final lap are the fullest. The Junior-Senior Prom, Baccalaureate, graduation all follow in rapid succession. Graduation day marked the end of our very successful race but it also signilies the beginning of a new race-the "race of life". Let us all resolve to run the race fairly and square- ly. making the most of our opportunities and living life to the fullest. NEVAH MOHLER --BUCKEYE- S0 THEY LIVEI lf anyone had said to me a year ago, "George Thistlewaite, you're going to win the 1948 Mehring prize for outstanding research in the field of education." why I would have questioned the person's brain capacity. which certainly proves that you never can tell. I was sitting in my raoio room before my combination television newspaper radio set. listening to the clicking of the newspaper apparatus and televiewing the China Bowl football game. When the clicking stopped, I reached over for the paper as usual, but what was my surprise to see on the front page, "Millionaire Baseball Player Offers Prize for Educational Re- search." I remember it as plainly as though it were yesterday. It went on to tell about how the famous Lute Mehring whose Baberuthian prowess is so great that he has more money than he can use, was offering five hundred thousand dollars to the person supplying the most infor- mation about his former classmates of Napoleon High School, Class of 1938. When question- ed as to his motives for this strange act, the star replied to the effect that not only was he curious to see what had happened to his old classmates, but he wished to further educational research by showing what had happpened to the graduates of a "typical" high school during the time that had elapsed since graduation, and thereby prove whether or not the old educational methods were better than our modern system of doing away with the classroom and putting the student on his own initiative. This was the sum and substance of the article which started me on the road to fame and fortune. for I determined then and there that my mission would be to find the 1938 graduates of N. H. S. and incidentally win the S500,000. Well all I can say is it was a hard fight, Ma, trackin' 'em down. but I won. Here you may see the results for yourself. Among the elite of good old "Mehico" and points North, South. East and West, that amazing young toreadorette. Signora Emilia Arrisona, Cas she is known around her chosen abodel has started a social commotion. No red cloth, only a few well-chosen, rapid right-to- left movements of her powerful eyes and the situation is well under control. Lately it's rumor- ed that bulls are not all to fall under her spell and that Seignors W. Ruetz and W. Reinking have flown down to Rio with other than oil interests in mind. Using her early training to good advantage. Marcella Forney has become No. l G-Girl and with able assistants B. Van Streader and G. M. Armstrong is a force to be felt. The girls attribute all their success to their motto-which they borrowed from the Royal Mounties. Just off Broadway stands the picturesque "Little Gypsy Tearoom" run by the Misses Becker, Franz and Slagle. Besides delicious food. they have an exotic fortune teller. Madame Mystero, who can see everything in a cup of tea leaves. It is not generally known that the Madame is Dot Bernicke and that she hails from Ohio. Last year she was visited by Dorothy Riessen. Madame told Dorothy that a dark man would come into her life. Today the head- lines announce that Prince Rober Kolbk Cfrom that mystic kingdom of Nertzapotaniaj has taken for his bride an American girl. Miss Dorothy Riessen. Of course, everyone knows about that noted New York barrister, Lynn Woodward, President of the New York Stock Exchange. President of the International Music Association, President of the National Alumni Association, and now a candidate for the Presidency of the United States. Recently, Betty Marie Rettig. employee of the "Russell Rohrs Amalgamated Airlines." was chief stewardess on the plane which Jane Withers took on her return trip to Hollywood. Both Miss Rettig and Mr. Rohrs graduated in 1938. Andre CBillJ Brubaker, internationally known canine beautician, has just received patent No. 296,378,542 which insures his exclusive right to the process for making French poodle's ears stand up. Luther Durham, remarkable horticulturist. is famed for his new flower, the gladiolamum, with which he is decorating the homes of the best families. All Toledo and points West are thrilled with the news that Leo Shondell, leader of the "Sweet Symphony Swingers" has signed a 5-year contract for weekly engagements at the Trianon Ballroom which he frequented in bygone days. Autograph hunters have been bounding him almost as much as they hound his famed clarinetist. "Red" Walters. Bets are equally divided over that football battle of the century between N. Y. U., coached by Lymie Lymangrover, and Southern California, under Skinny Deblin. Dora Vonier, Parisian correspondent for Vogue, has just sailed for Paris on the S. S. Seasick, to view the latest summer styles. She hopes to meet Florence Funchion. who is model- ing in the Au Printemps, and Marcella Bowerman, who is traveling companion to Miss Norma Van Wesche. Miss Wesche has been touring the seven continents. Clayton Knepley has been elected President of the P. F. A. for the 10th consecutive year. Genevieve Lowry. the skating star, biggest sensation since I-Ieinie, begins her twenty- third week at the "Iciclonia." She's a genius-and awfully easy on the "ice"-or "eyes." Take your choice! Wonder why our classmate. the presidential candidate, always seems to rate a ringside seat. Eleanor Higgins, the bowler who has just completed a coast-to-coast tour exhibiting her prowess, will sail tomorrow for England in search of new worlds to conquer. We hear from reliable sources that Jeree Reichert will receive the Academy Award for her portrayal of Scarlett O'Hara in i'Gone With the Wind," the picture which has been promised us for the past eleven years. Could it be that directors were waiting for La Reichert to grow up? -BUCKEYE- IAPPILT EVER AFTER A daisy to Willis Yackee--the truest man. He was offered a cool million to be news commentator on the Grape Nuts Program, but turned it down. He has been chauffeur to Miss Reichert for four years. She prefers a career to marriage, however. having just turned down his 37th proposal, Evidently Willis has not given up hope. Recommendations for an enjoyable evening--Wilma Armstrong's gorgeous warbling at the "Wigwam," That fellow who watches her so adoringly from the ringside table is Junior Foor, the professional football wonder. Donna June Rhody's All-Girl Orchestra has been invited by the King of Bologna to play a special engagement at the royal palace this summer. lt is rumored that the King has his eyes on her famous drummer, Marge Heilman. Donne Andrew, the well-known artist, will sail next month for Germany. He has been offered 840,000 to retouch the moustache on a painting of Adolph Hitler. Ruby Gillespie, private secretary to J. P. Morthan. the steel magnate. has been voted America's No. 1 secretary. Marcille Armbruster. the playwright, will be a June bride. Her approaching marriage to D. King Dinga-Donga is being announced. The "Rose-Ell," the quaint little flower shop on Broadway which so many of the stage and screen notables frequent. derives its name from its owner, Rosella Dieringer. "Barley McCorn", dummy of the well-known ventriloquist. Fred Winsman. is taking the country by Storm. The agent. advisor. personal secretary and wardrobe designer for Barley McCorn is Leola Kessler. Herbert Reimund, manager of a chain of theatres thruout the country, has been seen stepping with Dorothy Homan. owner of New York's most famous nursery school-"Dorothy's Kiddie Garden." At 10:15 each morning, Monday through Friday. every radio is dialed to hear Nevah Mohler, one of the leading exponents of modern are-culinary art-give her daily diet instruc- tions. That very enterprising young lady has made a marvelous discovery-a food of which a person can eat as much as he likes without becoming filled. Most ardent of her fan mail comes from Cornelius J. Burrows, famous young mechanic who is perfecting a new type of gasless engine. Two of the greatest benefactors of humanity are those famous Social Workers, Elenor Young and Madalin Welson. -Their greatest problem is what to do when they run out of slums. The much discussed Nobel Award of 1948 has been given to Mildred Spitler for her poem, "My Hopes For America--Realized." According to a recent survey, it is revealed that the recipient of the highest paid salary in America is Mary Lou Daman. lMiss Daman is president of the girls' college "Twin Twar." even more famous than Bryn Mawr. Already the author of half a dozen best sellers fthe last sold 150,000,000 copiesl Jane Small's greatest problem has been how to dispose of her huge royalties. Now to add to her troubles. Jane has received word that for the tenth consecutive time she has won the 32.500 from the American Magazine essay contest with her paper. "The America I Want." Gerald Knepley. the man whom all his classmates expected to become a famous biologist, has instead answered the call of the ministry. He preaches in one of the most beautiful of New York's churches and packs his parishoners in by the hundreds. His very capable and efficient secretary, Frances Homan. sees that the books are kept. A culinary column in the New York Daily Reflector which is attracting more readers every day is written by none other than Hilda Sonnenberg. One of the paper's reporters who achieved fame for digging up a sensational scoop is Evelyn Willard. Victor Bassett, famous multi-millionaire who made his fortune on Wall Street. has made known the fact that he will highly reward his two private nurses. Mary Finerty and Marcille Hitts. who saved him when it seemed that he would be drawn within the clutches of pneumonia. Mr. Bassett has also rewarded his private secretary. Marie Loudon. who so efficiently carried on his business for him. Dr. T. Quinn, Jr., who took as much misery out of this old world as anybody when he happened upon that sure cure for hay fever, made the headlines for the second time within a week. when that famous as well as temperamental operatic star, Mlle. Ann Rohrbaugh. contract- ed a cold on the day of her opening. Whispering hoarsely that none but the best should touch her throat, she demanded Dr. Quinn. Even though he was about to make a shot which would make him international golf champion. with a score of 18 on the first 17 holes, Dr. Quinn threw down his club and grimly muttering. "Duty first. duty first," left the course. Contemplating a non-stop flight is that noted pilot. Arnold Schilperoot, and his co- pilot, Ruth Vorwerk. Patricia "Pat" Parker has been named the country's leading interior decorator and has just been informed that she was chosen to remodel the White House as soon as candidate Wood- ward is elected. When that job is completed and before going abroad to make plans for redoing the Hall of Mirrors. she will pause long enough to plan the furnishings for the homes of two friends whom she knew as Bernice Rohrbaugh and Lucille Brown. Both are outstanding young society matrons, and each has told Miss Parker privately to spare no expense in making her home the most beautiful on Long Island. fContinued on Page 672 - B U CK E Y E- Time Marches Un President - -' Charles Mann Vice President Lawrence Funkhouser Secretary - - Donald Chance Treasurer Charles Klotz Juniors? Who said that? Oh, that's right We are Juniors, aren't we? Next year we'll be Seniors, but there has been no time to think of that because all year we have been very active in school activities. In athletics our class contributed to football, basketball, and track. Each performer handled his task in an excellent manner, As for debate, members of our class aided in the success of this Work, also. The class play, with the sincere help of those expert directors, Miss Smith and Mr. Johnson, was a booming success, both in putting money in the class treasury and in putting the show over. We are not forgetting that our members also formed a part of the band, orchestra, Girl Reserves, Hi-Y, and glee clubs, which will help us in later life by teaching us to be better citizens and training us socially. We feel this has been ia most successful year for the class. We wish next year's Juniors the same measure of success, J CHARLES MANN. It's thc rustic in 'em. rl-ZIYZHH This brought forth a song.

The girls upheld the standards of the sopho- more class as well as the boys. They were found in the band, orchestra, Girl Re- serves, glee club, Student Council, and basketball team. The boys having a more varied and more numerous field of activity are, nevertheless, found in every one of them. You have seen the sophomore boys participating in the band, orchestra, triangular, tennis and track teams.

President - James Rausch Vice President - Kathleen Chubb Secretary - Marilyn McConkey Treasurer - - Russell Reimund On September 13, 1937, a large group of Freshmen paraded down the halls of Napoleon High School with two ideas in mind-to make good and to find their classrooms without the aid of the high and mighty upper classmen. We have succeeded in the latter: we hope we have done so in the former. We placed several representatives on the football and basketball teams and We have many more athletes in the making. Several of the freshmen belong to the N Club. Among other sports which we entered were tennis and track. Proof of our musical ability is found in the fact that many of our class- mates are members of the Boys' and Girls' Cx'ee Clubs and a number of others have belonged to the band and orchestra for quite a while. I The freshmen also aid in governing the student body with four representa- tives on the Student Council. There are many freshmen who belong to the F. F. A. and Cm. R.

President - Donald Andrew Vice President Victor Bassett Secretary - Donald Chance Treasurer Lynn Woodward The organization of boys, designed to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community higher standards of Christian character and living. has operated quite successfully this year. Many small projects were attempted and completed. The club was instrumental in instituting the weekly noon dance, which proved to be an aid in developing the social activities of the school. The club has in collaboration with Girl Reserves Club sponsored a few dances. which turned out to be quite popular the students. A project our club has pursued in the last year, that of sending flowers every Sunday to each patient in the hospital, seems quite unimportant. but letters from patients have revealed that the results produced were favorable and very successful. The club is looking forward to the sending of three members this summer to Camp Nel- son Dodd, the annual Hi-Y training camp. - B U C K E Y E- Napoleo Knights President - Norman Lymangrover Vice President Lloyd I-lefllinger Secretary - Charles Mann Treasurer Andrew Lowry The N Club. though organized last year. was not reorganized until the late December of this year, at which time Mr. Florence was named advisor. Members of this club are made up of boys who have earned a major varsity letter. However. letters are not only awarded for such performances as carrying the ball for a touchdown or sinking a dozen baskets per game, but also for those less spectacular performances of carrying water and soaking towels. Therefore, managers, too. merit membership in the club. The aims and purposes of the club are to encourage good sportsmanship throughout the school and community and to promote everlasting friendship among the members. -- B U C K E Y E - Gracious In Manner President ----- Geraldine Reichert Vice President - Marcella Fruth Treasurer - - Mildred Spitler Secretary Marianne Speiser Program Chairman - - - Genevieve Lowry Social Chairmen - - - Ann Rohrbaugh, Patricia Parker Service - - Betty Marie Rettig, Grace Marie Armstrong Finance - Elenor Young.

Napoleon was well represented and came away with more than their share of honors. Louis Davis received the rating of "superior-plus": James Funkhouser and Robert Brillhart both were rated "superior" performers: Robert Kiser 'Aexcellentf' and John Crahan, Edith Helberg, and the Brass and Saxo- phone Quartets-"very good". Superior ratings make one eligible for the State Contest held at Oberlin on May 14. Just as the Buckeye was going to press we received word that James Funk- houser had received superior rating at the Oberlin contest which makes him el- igible for the national contest to be held at Elkhart, Indiana. The latest news report May 20th is that Jim has won superior rating, which is the highest one can obtain, in the national contest.

Our membership was larger than preceding years, when we seniors were underclass- men. This was an advantage but the difliculty proved to be in finding a con- venient time to meet. The day of meeting was finally settled and we started practicing for performances. April brought the first performance to the public. Only twelve members were selected to sing in the County Chorus, They represented the Girls' Glee Club of Napoleon. The next musical exhibition was given in May, when the well-known Music Festival was held.

D. Shaw Members Kenneth Armbruster James Osborne Donald Crawford Junior Stevens Herbert Scarr Kenneth Davis The Future Farmers of America is a national organization of farm boys studying vocational agriculture in the public schools throughout the United States. The F. F. A. is designed to recognize and encourage the natural instincts and tendencies of boys to organize into gangs or groups. This group organization puts enthusiasm, pleasure, and recreation into their work. The boys are taught how to conduct their own meetings and how to do things in an organized way. They are also taught the essentials of scientific agriculture, live- stock and grain judging, and public speaking. The exercise of responsibility and working to- gether in groups tends to develop leadership and a cooperative spirit. This is the first year for vocational agriculture in the Napoleon Public Schools. The Na- poleon F. F. A. Chapter was organized Nov. l8, 1937. A group of nine boys formed the nucleus of the Napoleon Chapter and were initiated December 2 by the l-lolgate Chapter. All officers for this first year were well chosen and carried out their parts in an admirable manner. The boys have made enough money during the year to purchase pins. a banner. and other essential chapter equipment. ' An agricultural program was put on for a high school assembly. March 4. The F. F. A. Chapter opening and closing ceremony was used for the program. Special recognition is given Clayton Knepley as president of the newly formed F. F. A. Chapter. Clayton showed excellent leadership in guiding the boys through their nrst year which has proved successful in every respect. '6 Q - B U C K E Y E --- Football L ettermen Norman Lymangrover-Back Lymie added the finishing touches to a well formed backfleld by doing ' most of the passing and kicking. He is a senior this year and leaves an- other opening in the backfield that will be hard to fill. Harold Gibson-Guard Harold broke into the line-up as a freshman when Zim was injured. His playing proved that he was a good choice for filling the position. Robert Deblin-Back Bob was the lightest man in the backfield and showed that weight isn't everything by getting through some of the biggest opponents with com- parative ease. His replacement will not be easy. John Fruchey-Back Red, though used as a substitute, saw a lot of action this year and gave all the regulars a fight for their positions. He will be a valuable asset to the team in the next two years. -BUCKEYE- Robert Kiser-End Bob, just a freshman, started out in a very good fashion and improved throughout the year, He certainly proved that freshmen can play football. Earl Brubaker-Back Earl is a junior and has already played two years of varsity ball. Besides being a goodball carrier he was an excellent pass receiver. If you don't think so just ask Montpelier. Franklin Durham-Guard Bobo was the lightest man on the team but had to play against some of the biggest. Although he took a lot of punishment he always came back for more. Junior Poor-Back Junior was the speedster of the backlield, being both a good ball carrier and pass receiver. He had an injury which kept him out of a few games at the first of the season but he showed excellent form the rest of the season. Donald Zimmer-Guard - Zim is a junior and still has another year in which to play. Since he is an excellent blocker and ferocious tackler, the team felt its loss when an injury prevented his playing the latter half of the season. Donald Chance-Back Don proved that a back didn't have to be a ball carrier to gain fame on the gridiron. He played blocker and paved the way for his teammates to make long gains. Howard Bogert-Tackle Howard, a substitute at first, worked so hard and improved so much that he earned for himself a regular berth, where he played the rest of the year. Lloyd 'Hefliinger-End Lloyd played tackle at first but proved that he was versatile and could play end just as well. He was an excellent defensive player and made life very miserable for the opposing backfield. Robert Brillhart-Back Bob played as a substitute most of the year and proved that he was very capable of replacing any member of the backlield. Gilbert Westrick-Tackle Wes, one of the bigger boys on the team, played hard, smashing ball throughout the year and always gave the opposition something to worry about. Gaylord Ritter-Center Jiggs was one of the finest defensive men on the team. Although rather light, he made up for his lack in weight with very hard, smashing tackles. His place will be hard to fill next year. -BUCKEYE- Football Squad NAPOLEON-Z1 SYLVANIA-0 A light and inexperienced team took their places under the newly installed floodlights for the initial game of the season. After a scoreless nrst half, the blue and whiters came back in the third and fourth stanzas for a Z1 to 0 victory. NAPOLEON-6 SWANTON-6 In their second appearance the Coprorals rallied in the fourth and final quarter to squeeze out a 6 to 6 tie with an under-rated Swanton eleven. NAPOLEON-18 MONTPELIER-6 Inspired by the dedication ceremony, the local lads turned out a neat 18 to 6 victory over the Montpelier Locomotives. This was the first league game and started the team out on the right foot in the league race. NAPOLEON-12 DEFIANCE-13 Before a capacity crowd, the Corporals met their first defeat after a fourth quartet rally by our outstanding rivals, the Defiance Bulldogs. NAPOLEON-O LIBERTY CENTER--7 Fighting with their backs to the wall throughout the game, the Corporals held the Liberty Center Tigers to a single touchdown. NAPOLEON-0 BOWLING GREEN-14 Showing their lighting spirit, the Little Corporals held the big boys from Bee Gee to a 14 to 0 score, which was quite an accomplishment according to the previous records. NAPOLEON-O VAN WERT-12 Although playing the Van Wert Cougars on fairly even terms the entire game, the boys suffered the bad breaks and left the gridiron on the short end of a 12 to O score. NAPOLEON-0 CRANBROOKE-21 After a long ride and a tour of the exclusive Cranbrooke School, the Cor- porals took a stinging defeat from the hands of the Prep School eleven. With exception of the defeat a fine time was had by all. NAPOLEON-25 WAUSEON-7 Another redskin bit the dust as the Corporals came out of a mid-season slump with a bang and whipped the Wauseon Indians to the tune of 25 to 7. NAPOLEON-7 BRYAN-7 In the annual Turkey Day game the Corporals ended the 1937 season by holding the highly favored Bryan Bears to a 7 to 7 tie. In closing the season we wish for a highly successful season in 1938. -Norman Lymangrover. - B U C K E Y E '- Basketball L ettermerz First row: J. Poor. A. Schilperoot, R. Deblin, N. Lymangrover.

Montpelier gave Wauseon an even battle all the way through for first place. Wauseon 75-Napoleon 43 The Wauseon team seems to get much enjoyment in defeating Napoleon as they ran up a 75 to 43 score by taking 14 out of the 16 first places. Due to the fact that the "Buckeye" is being sent to press we will be un- able to give the final score of the League Meet. Although Bryan is favored to retain the league championship we are sure the Corporals will come through with high honors. -Norman Lymangrover. It's A Racquet! The tennis team under the able guidance of Mr. Johnson is off to a suc- csesful season. Setting their goal to contniue last year's undefated record, Lynn Woodward, Andy Lowry, Jim Funkhouser, Don Andrew, Willis Yackee and 'Bob Brillhart will play in matches with Bowling Green, Defiance, Bryan and Wauseon. With high hopes the team looks forward to the League meet on our courts May 14 and the district meet at Bowling Green May 20-21. Fore! After quite a few years, golf has been revived as a sport in Napoleon High School under Mr. Gldfather. This is in keeping with the plan of the school in offering more sports in which everyone may participate. The team has played matches with Defiance, Bowling Green, and Swanton both here and away. Al- though the season isn't completed, it has been a success for the interest in the team may be shown by the number of boys on the squad. The members of the team are James Davis, Lawrence Funkhouser, James Funkhouser, Thomas Quinn.

FOOTBALL Thirty boys reported to Mr. Johnson three afternoons a week for football practice during the fall season. This supervised instruction proved valuable to the boys in that it provided healthful exercise, a pleasurable pastime and training that will help the boys to become better high school players. Five of the eighth grade boys reported for high school spring football practice. BASKETBALL The Junior High Basketball Team consisted of seventh, eighth and ninth grade boys this year for the first time in the history of our school. A schedule of eleven games was played. The boys made a good record for themselves by Win- ning seven of the games. Robert Kretz, Robert Weaks, Albert Druhot, Luther Kolbe, Charles Wells, Robert Gebhart, John Bost, Maurice Nye, John Motter and Max lVlinnich were awarded letters, Benny Kessler and Edward Fossett, manager letters. John Bost was elected honorary captain. Most of these boys will be found in the lineup of the high school teams during their high school career. FIELD AND TRACK The annual Field and Track Day was between the seventh and eighth grade boys and girls on the Loose Athletic Field. Preparations for the events of this meet occupied some of the free time of the boys and girls after school hours. XX N6 - B U C K E Y E - As Pfrejudiced As The Other Side Back row fleft to rightj-J.

This was the friendly sentiment felt by each of the twelve debaters even at the end of the season when every one knew just why "the several states should Cor should notj adopt the unicamgeral system of legislature." The first scene of conflict was at Clay High School in which every one took part. Gerry, Karl, Mary Lou, Marian, Charles and Pat upheld the question while Jane, Amelia, Jim, Margaret, Eleanor and Nevah preferred two houses in their state government. Two sets of triangular contests were held at Bryan, Wauseon and Napo- leon in which the negative was twice victorious. Each town furnished three judges. As a climax to the debating season, Mary Lou, Cierry, Jim and Amlelia traveled to Heidelberg where they won three and lost three debates.

S. bid a fond farewell to the seniors with a dinner served by the Band Mothers' Organization. Acting as master of ceremonies, Mary Lou Daman very cleverly introduced Lynn Woodward who showed us how to "Strike Up the Band" in a manner befitting a Junior class president. In a manner equally befitting a Senior class president, Julian Yocum, answered "Thanks a Million." Like James Hilton's famous schoolmaster, Mr. Chips, our famlous school- master, Mr. Arn, recalled the students who have passed through the N. H. S. portals of learning for the past few years and told what measure of success they have achieved. The most appropriate title was "One Never Knows, Does One?" Pauline Heistand Bolbach, for her farewell address chose the catchy sub- ject "Swing High, Swing Low." While she talked our thoughts wandered back to our "pigtail" days when we first had the pleasure of knowing her. "Moonlight and Shadows" as sung by Wilma Armstrong was a happy ending to the program. Our new gym, transformed into a night club and decorated by gold and silver notes suspended from the ceiling, formed a suitable setting for Frankie Schenk's swing band. At the intermlission. Janet Cuff, Napoleon's Eleanor Powell, proved she was "In a Dancing Mood". If our evening was successful, who should be thanked more than the one to whom everyone rushed when things went wrong, Miss Lenore Farnham? And So They Lived Happily Ever After fConcluded from Page 272 To rejuvenate the rapidly aging Shirley Temple. the foremost beauty consultant of the day, Mlle. Lucille Beard, has been summoned to Hollywood. She alone possesses the ability to take with perfect safety 10 years off anybody's life. One of her best customers is that dear little tot, Irene Fidler, who has been capturing hearts with her interpretation of the little sister in "Seventeen" ever since she did so on the N. H. S. stage 10 years ago. Ten years ago a hit play told the story of a Secretary of State's wife who wrote the congressmen's speeches and was the power behind the throne. It's pretty startling to learn that a little black-haired lady, once known as Peggy Chapman, has been the moving force behind the government for the past tive years. And until now, everyone believed that those excellent speeches Senator P. Rausch always delivers were his own! One of the names on everybody's lips these days is that of Jiggs Ritter, the man who merged Silly Symphonies and Merry Melodies. and in six months that fellow we old timers will remember. Walt Disney, begged Mr. Ritter to buy him out. Jiggs is now working on a little skit called "Simpy Sails to Saturn." The picture is being financed by the Roberts, "Stevens and Sickmiller," who sank several millions in a gigantic Buck Rogers' Rocketship factory, and who hope through this picture to replace the round-the-world tours with planet-to-planet hops.

The play selected by the class was the well known coniedy, "Seventeen", by Booth Tarkington. In this presentation William Brubaker was Willie Baxter, a misunderstood boy of seventeen, with Lola Pratt, his baby talk lady, portrayed by Mary Fin- erty. The roles of Wil1ie's parents were taken by Elenor Young and Leo Shon- dell and his talkative little sister by Irene Fidler. Genesis, the faithful old negro servant, was presented by Robert Kolbe. The friends of Lola and the Baxters were skillfully taken by Patricia Parker, Donald Andrew, Lynn Woodward, Margaret Chapman, Marcella Bowerman, Luther Mehring, Willis Yackee, and Clayton Knepley. The success of the play was based on the excellent acting of the Cast, the directing by Miss Elizabeth Smith and Mr. John L. Johnson and the work of the Technical Staff consisting of Stage Managers-William Ruetz, Russell Rohrs, William Reinking, Robert Deblin, and Genevieve Lowry: Property Managers-Ruth Vorwerk, Madalin Welson, Geraldine Reichert, Ruby Gilles- pie, Mildred Spitler and Betty Marie Rettig: Advertising Managers-Arnold Schilperoot, Nevah Mohler, Grace Armstrong, Jane Small, Luther Durham, Ann Rohrbaugh and Marjorie Heilman: Prompters-Leola Kessler, Wilma Armstrong, Dora Vonier. The evening's performance was rounded out between acts by the music of "Mike" Lombardi and the High School Orchestra. -BUCKEYE-- Mama I Wanta Be An Actor The Junior Class presented their annual play February 2 in the audi- torium. The selection made by the class of '39 was a three-act comedy dealing with the age of adolescence, entitled "Growing Pains". Lawrence Funkhouser as George Mclntyre played the role of a youth in love for the first time with Prudence, the siren, portrayed by Patricia Ann Gilpin. The roles of the understanding mother and bewildered father, Professor and Mrs. Mclntyre, were handled excellently by Margaret Dietrich and Richard Harrison. Mary Woodward as Terry Mclntyre, gave us her interpretation of a younger sister who seemed to be a constant trial to her brother and whose none too secret passion was Bryan, played by Lowell Westhoven. The parts of Elsie Patterson, the wallflower, and Mrs. Patterson, her mother, were taken by Rose Marie Laremore and Jean Herrick. Sophie, the perfect maid was played by Nor- ma Mann and the "hard boiled" trafic oflicer by Donald Zimmer. As friends of George and Terry, Freddy Arps, Herbert Rettig, James Parker, Bill Bokerman, Miriam Mueller, Betty Spieth, Ireta Lemon, Betty Wildermuth, Luetta Lang, Marjorie Oberhaus, Leonard Pfau and Robert Homan gave very commendable performances. Between acts the audience was entertained by the music of the High School Orchestra under the direction of "Mike" Lombardi. The play was made a success by the capable direction of Miss Elizabeth Smith and Mr. John L.

OBERLIN SCHOOL OF COMMERCE This school is having one of the most pros- perous years in its long history of three quar- ters of a century. It has gained a wide reputa- tion for training stenographers, secretaries and accountants. A number of years ago it broke away from the custom of business schools of admitting students any day of the year, making it nec- essary to use the individual method of in- struction. Students are admitted only a.t the beginning of -terms and can thus be formed into classes just as is done in all high schools, colleges and universities. As a result of admitting only high school graduates, amd only at the beginning of terms and offering strong courses, the Oberlin School of Commerce has been accepted as a member of the American Association of Jun- ior Colleges, a. standing accorded to fewer than a half dozen private business training .schools in the United States. If interested in business or secretarial training see what Oberlin has to offer. Making Sure Don A.-"I would like to marry your daughter." 1 Mr. Small-"Can you support a fam- i y?" Don-"Yes" Mr. Small-"But there are eight of us since Gerry's married." Andy Lowry, a beginner at golf, when asked how he came out on the first day on the links, replied that he made it in eighty. "Eighty," ejaculated Karl A., "that's really remarkable. Most old timers would envy you that score. You'll surely be an enthusiast from now on." i'Yes", said Andy condescending, "I'm going back tomorrow and try the second hole."
