HISTORY As we, the class of 1940. entered Napoleon High School we gained recog- nition as being the largest class since 1929. As Freshmen, we spent much of our time acquainting ourselves with our fellow classmates and in making a place for ourselves on the honor roll. The members of our class participated in many extra-curricular activities such as: Girl Reserves and Hi-Y, Band, Orchestra, Cilee Clubs, Debate, Operetta, and sports of all kinds. In our Sophomore year we tried to keep up our previous record and to improve as much as possible. We can be proud of the fact that one of our number won a National Contest in music. The third year found us more experienced and capable of handling our duties. We were again represented in the various school activities. During this year the National Honor Society was inaugurated, and our class was represented by ive members. The class contributed many characters to the operetta, "Joan of the Nancy Lee". Our class also presented a very successful class play, "Seven Sisters." The year was climaxed by the Junior-Senior Prom as our last fare- well to the Seniors. Now our goal has been reached and we are again preparing ourselves for another phase of life. Graduation day marked the end of our very succsesful high school career. We ask nothing but to be remembered for the progress we made and the influence we had upon underclassmen. We sfhall strive to be- come citizens of which our school can be proud.

We have been well represented by able lead- ers and willing helpers. Many leaders have developed this year, some who were, heretofore, undiscovered. A few of our original classmates have dropped out and we have gained some new ones. We regret the loss of the former and welcome the addition of the latter. . Big events of this year were the selection and purchasing of our class rings, participation in sports, and the Junior Class play. The play was very ably directed by Miss Shiffrer and Mr. Johnson. Much fun and a few worries were shared by the Juniors when they cared for the Junior candy stand at the basket- ball games. Many thanks to Mr. Cuff, our supervisor. The Juniors have been well represented in all school activities. Our Junior players were a great help to the basketball team. We had representatives on the debate team. on School Notes staff and The Code. We are eagerly looking forward to the year when, as Seniors, we may rule supreme. This year has trained us for that leadership. We regret very much that after one more short year we shall be leaving these halls which have been very dear to us.

H. S. During this time our class has not been lacking in participation of school activities. We have been well represented in the student council, debate and in clubs such as Hi-Y, Girls Reserves, F. P. A., and F. H. A. Our class. being very musically minded, shares the honors of the band, orchestra and glee clubs. Boys and girls alike wholeheartedly participated in all sports. The boys partici- pated in football, basketball, intramurals and track, while the girls were oc- cupied with field hockey and basketball. So far we have upheld gallantly the standards set by N. H.

As usual, they came in from the public and parochial schools quite green, but soon showed their true value. Scholastically We are good. Our class average rates well with previous classes. We boast of many participants in the band, glee club and numerous other interscholastic activities. In athletics our class reveals much premise. Two boys of exceptional talent won regular positions on the second team. They should become better in the years to come. Numerous others performed well for the Junior High team. In football there is the same bright outlook. Our representatives are exceptionally active on the Student Council. We are proud of our place in Napoleon High School and in the next three years expect to do even better. FRITZ POHLMAN. -CLASS OF 1'943w-1 Row Row Row Rovv Row Row One: R. Agler, E. Allen, M.

These awards are made on the basis of scholarship and service to the school. Each year the three highest boys and three highest girls in each class are recognized for their services during their four years in N. H. S. The two highest boys and girls in each class receive gold and silver medals respectively, the remainder receive certificates. Every student from the time he is a Freshman should strive to obtain a place on the Merit Award. The following are the students who have succeeded to be recognized in 1940: Seniors James Funkhouser Robert Brillhart Andrew Lowry John Crahan Richard Westhoven Bob Kiser . Eldor Baden Karl Baker Earl Roessing Norman DeTray Lawrence Hampton Fritz Pohlman Max Minnich Wm.

After about a Week, the class had forgotten those glorious vacation days and settled down to work. The students took a more active part in school activities this year. Our members were well represented in the Band, Orchestra, Student Council, Jr. I-Ii Basketball team, and several boys and girls aided the Code Staff. We also had two very successful booths at the Annual School Carnival. During the Christmas season our room, with the seventh grade, enjoyed a Christmas Party. Gifts were exchanged, games played and abundant re- freshments served. A group of boys and girls attended the Basketball party given late in March. We have some very promising basketball and football players for the future High School teams. The boys have worked hard in the past year, and We feel sure they will continue this splendid spirit. And so we end our short. colorful. school year. hoping the coming years will be as pleasant. MARY IRENE ROESSING. SEVEiTH CLASS HISTORY Our seventh grade class has entered all activities with enthusiasm. We welcomed seven new students to our room during the past year. "The Class of 45" has done well in basketball. We hope for the best for these boys who are already so promising. Our class sponsored a booth in the school carnival in March and had very good results. Our Christmas border of carolors was designed and colored by members K of the class and was considered exceptionally good. We have accomplished much in the past and we will work for bigger and better things for the future. I ALICE LOWRY. lst row: 'Znd row: 3rd row: 4th row: 5th row: --CLASS' OF 1944- W. Oberhaus, R.

All teams practiced during the first part of each Week under the direction of Mr. Weber and played a game with another team in their league on Friday. The following teams were organized: "Little Brooklyn"-Tom McCo1ley capt.g Robert Riessen, Earnest Cox, Burnell Ritter, James Palmer, John Holden, Raymond Weirauck, Darrel Zachrich. "Fighting Rams"-Jack Fruchey, Capt.: Dick Weeks, Guy Smith, Ken Delventhal, Larry Groll, Jim Conway, Charles Snyder. "West End Savages"-Bob Foster, capt.3 Fred Sat- tler, Elmer Donley, Clarence Yoakum, Mel Augenstein, Don Barnes, Jim Hea- ston, Darrel Farison. l'Brick Yard Savages"-Don lngle, Capt.: Grant Wille- man, Bob Seick, Leo Druhot, Jim Small, Leland Gunn, Bill Moden. At the end of the season the "Brick Yard Savages" were the Winners in the league, having an undefeated season. Six man football was new to all the boys, but they enjoyed the game immensely after they started to play. In this new game the team' consists of a center, two ends, and three backfield men, with all players eligible to receive passes. This set-up gives more opportunity for passing and tricky plays which were especially enjoyed by the boys. BASKETBALL- Bob Brillhart Guard Bob Motter Center Andrew Lowry Guard Bob Kiser Center.

We left our shooting ability at home and suffered a 24-19 loss. 23-Liberty Center--The first half of the game was nip-and-tuck but we pulled out in front at half time. Liberty has yet to beat a Florence coached Napoleon team. Final score 34-27. Tournament Games: Napoleon 30. Wauseon 24-Wauseon came on the floorrdetermined to leave with a victory. The beginning of the game was slow but the Scots held the lead throughout. This was the- third defeat delivered to the Indians this season by the Napoleon team. - g Napoleon 44, Paulding 23-The highly praised "Class B" Pauld- ing quintet 'was no match for the Scots and victory was foreseen at the early stages of the contest. Bryan 35, Napoleon 26-Bitter rivalry flourished at its highest. The critics called it a toss up. It was do or die. For three quarters the game was played on even terms. --BASKETBALLl RESERVES Another year, another team, another group of new boys ready and willing, but not always able to play basketball. After the first few "cuts" the coach and the boys had a good idea of what the Reserves would be like. The idea of the second team or Reserves is not to compile a great record of games won, but to teach the future varsity boys the many fundamentals of basketball. Most of the other schools. use juniors and seniors on their reserve squad with the idea of winning games. Our Resreves did not win many games, but I'm sure every boy on the team has learned much. NORMAN DeTRAY. I UN IOR HIGH This year's Junior High squad consisted of two teams, one seventh and eighth graders and one freshmen. The Seventh and Eighth Grade Junior High team consisted of Bob Foster, center: Leo Druhot, forward: Tom McCol1ey, forward: Don lngle, guard and Dick Speiser, guard. The substitutes were Dick Weeks, Jack Fruchy, Vincent Reichert, Grant Willeman and Ken Creager. The team had a very successful season, winning ten games and losing only one. Their snappy passwork and unusual shooting ability was outstand- ing and enabled them to beat many teams composed of larger players. This team promises to be a championship team in future years. The freshman team was handicapped by a lack of players, for some of the freshmen were on the reserve squad. Those who played for the Freshman Junior High Team Were: Bill Westhoven, center: Bob Bost, forward: Gerald Gertzweiler, forward: Tom Boyd, guard and Danny Dunn, guard. Their season's record consisted of seven victories and six defeats. Both Junior High Teams were very enthusiastic where basketball was concerned and practiced diligently under Mr. Weber. -T R A C K- TRACK TEAM l20 Yd. High Hurdles-B. Small, J. Bost. 100 Yd. Dash-J.

No first place was won by Napoleon in this meet, however, Bill Small tied for first in the high jump. This meet was held at night. The League meet was scheduled to be held on May 8, but was postponed to May 15 because of rain and cold. Those to qualify for the preliminaries were Bost, Kolbe, Comadoll, Hoover, Small and Kiser.

Our track team this year was coached by Mr. Dietsch. We hope that through the efforts he has made our track team will become more popular so that enough boys will participate to make our team first class every- where. BENNY KESSLER. GOLF Two weeks ago the golf class, taught by Mr. Florence, was organized. It is an experiment but shows a promising future. Mr. Florence has been able to teach only the fundamentals in this short time, but next year, it may be made into a regular class if enough are interested. Golf, like any other sport, can be developed into art. -INTRAMURALS-- INTRAMURALS Intramurals, revived last year by Coach Florence, wcre resumed again thi" year. The students. both boys and girls, participated. The activities consisted of basketball, table tennis, and softball. Basketball was the most important activity in Intramural sports this year. Each homeroom produced a team. The Senior High School teams represented the American League while the Junior High represented the National League. Mr. Titus' Typers won in the American League: Mr. Johnson's Cubs won in the National League. On the "Night of Champions", held on April 17th, there two rival teams clashed. with the Typers coming out on top by a score of 35- 30. Bob Bauer won the individual foul shooting, dropping 22 fouls out of 25 in the bucket. Mr. Johnson's Cubs won the team foul shooting. The finals in the table tennis tournament was also played on the "Night of Champions". Bob Bauer defending his title defeated challenger John Bost. The Softball Tournament is yet to be played. The teams are to be made up of the four classes in high school. TENNIS Our tennis courts lure many novices who may in the near future become members of our tennis team under the able supervision of Mr. Johnson. This year the tennis team, chosen by the challenging method will have for their opponents Bowling Green, Scott. Defiance, Bryan, Wauseon. and others. There will be two matches with each of the high schools. On May ll, the League Tennis Meet will be held at Napoleon. The winners of this Meet will then advance to the District Tennis Meet at Bowling Green on May 18 and 19. The most promising players on our team are Andrew Lowry, James Funkhouser, Ward Andrew, Russel Smiley and William Ludeman. -4X 3?

During the football season, we sponsored a refreshment stand. Through- . out the year we gave several dances and were entertained at two joint Hi-Y and G. R. parties. Numerous small projects were undertaken and successfully ex- ecuted. The annual G. R. Conference was held in Napoleon this year under the guidance of 1940 Conference President, Mary Ann Speiser. In early spring we held Candlelight Service at which time new members were form- ally initiated into the club. Our Mother-Daughter banquet was held May 8. Rings, our emblem of recognition, were awarded to deserving Juniors and Seniors. Thus has passed another year and may the gleaming candles of the Girl Reserves be carried higher each succeeding year. HI-Y The Hi-Y has a four square plan of development-spiritual. mental. physical and social. The group of '39-'40 sought to attain this growth by carrying on the activities of other years, and initiating many new ones. The club is especially gratified with its new projects. To aid in the spiritual development of each member one of the local churches was attended each month. For the benefit of the entire student body the club sponsored weekly worship services during Lent. The first Hi-Y Mother and Son Banquet was held April 2. The Spring Area Council Conference was initiated by this chapter and was in Napoleon May 8. These events are expected to become traditional in the Hi-Y Club's program, ,.,,,., . ww, , 3- V-N at KADWX Am Nw- ff.-ri 15 il K S , 3 4' if ""MX?x,, 1 .

It immediately became popular with the student body. A con- test was held to determine the name. Harriet West won the first prize of a year's subscription to "The Code." lt took much conscientious work to publish the school paper every week and to have it up to the expectations of the students as well as the teachers. We have started a school paper that we hope will be continued in future years becoming, with each succeeding year, bigger and better. - DEBATE "Should the Government own and operate the Railroads", was the ques- tion for debate this year. A series of debates was arranged with Wauseon Delta and Lima. A number of practice debates were held too. The Speech class and American Problems class benefited by these. All those who tried out had an opportunity to debate. Two affirmative and two negative teams, composed of three members each were chosen. The affirmative was made up of James Eunkhouser. Mary Helen Pohlman, Stanley McClure, Karl Baker, and Eleanor Pacey. while Karl Albrink, Eleanor Belknap, Marian Bockelman and Bob Bowerman composed the negative. The work was carried on under the able direction of Miss Meekison. After the debates. some type of informal entertainment was usually provided. There was only one judged debate, and that was with Lima. The negative team from Lima won the decision Zll. However. they specialized in debate. The public in general seems to be against Government operation and control of the Railroads. NEWS STAFF It has long been the custom of Napoleon High School to bring news to the public through the county papers. However, this year extra stress Was placed on this feature to make the people "Behold, the School Notes." Two senior editors. Betty Forney and Marian Bockelman, with assis- tants, Lillian Armstrong and Mary Helen Pohlman, were elected. Each editor was responsible every alternating week to make a list of the important news, assign it, collect it and see that it was taken to the up-town papers. Miss Meekison. supervisor. corrected and altered the articles. Mr. Oldfather censored and proof read it. The students zealouslye worked on these news items, and tried to get it over in the most attractive manner. We feel that we have had real cooperation from the two county papers. V A scrapbook of this school news: is kept, so that in years to come We can look back and see what NHS was doing in 1940. -MUSICl BAND Whom do we see strutting down the line? None other than Professor Mike Lombardi, Drill Master John Kappel and the Naapoleon High School Band. ' The Band has been given the honor of being the Northwestern Ohio Champs for two successive years. - They have brought home many trophies including the WSPD trophy from Toledo University. In all of these contests we have competed with large bands. such as Bowling Green, Wauseon, Bryan. Defiance. Holland, Swanton. Lyons, Bradner, Perrysburg, Maumee, Delta and Liberty Center. In spite of the competition Napoleon High Band was always the out- standing performer. They also took an exclusive part in the football games this vear. Some of the most difficult formations were made: revolving N, 1940. N. H. S.. cartwheel, airplane, star and O H I O. The band has been guests of Toledo University, Bowling Green Uni- versity. Holgate, Waterville, Lakeside and Grand Rapids, giving excellent con- certs. ' T Napoleon'High 'School Band is known throughout Northwestern Ohio -and will always be remembered for their fine iperforrnances. ORCHESTRA Our High School Orchestra, still under the capable direction of Mr. Lom- bardi, has just completed a busy year. This group of musicians, besides pro- viding music for the Junior Class Play, the Senior Class Play, Boy Scout programs, and several local banquets, gave an interesting concert for a School assembly and. also traveled to Wauseon to furnish music at the Northwestern Ohio Athletic banquet. The orchestra is not only educational to students musically inclined, but it is also a source of enjoyment to them. When one considers the factthat this organization meets but once a week for a short time. it is possible to appreciate their music even more. Their repetoire. consists of a variety of interesting and contrasting selections. It is our sincere hope that the High School Orchestra will continue to hold a definite place among the Na- poleon High School activities.

There was such a large number, that it was necessary to have two groups. One group meeting on Tues-day and one on Thursday. Each group elected its own officers. The Glee Club had the privilege of singing for various programs, a few were the Lenten Service sponsored by the Hi-Y boys and assembly programs. They also enjoyed an evening of caroling before Christmas, then a delicious lunch was served. At present Miss Love and her entire force is working diligently on the operetta, "Sunbonnet Sue". The officers of the groups are as follows: Tuesday group: President - Edith Helberg Vice Pres. - Wilmina Gomer Secretary - Carolyn Boyer Treasurer Marjorie Brubaker Librarian Mary Frances Reiger Thursday group: President - Jane Gilpin Sec'y.-Treas. Carol Brey Librarian - Betty Rohrs BOY'S GLEE CLUB The Boys' Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Love. met regularly each week to prepare music for their several appearances. They .entertained the teachers at teachers' meeting and were received enthusiastically. They also sang with the Girls' Glee Club at the School Lenten services. The boyys' most important accomplishment. however, was the operetta "Sunbonnet Sue , which was given in cooperation with the Girls' Glee Club. MVUSIC Egg if . E Bw ,mf ass?

We hope that the N-Club will keep up the line work in- years to come. BOB GEBHART. FUTURE I-IOMEMAKERS OFFICERS President Lucille Ash Treasurer - Carmen Bond Vice Pres. f Betty Travis Historian - Marilyn Andrews Secretary - Ireta Lemon Reporter - Rose Marie Reiser Advisor and Sponsor ------- Ellenor Bricker This club, the Future Homemakers of America, is a new addition to the activities of our school. Members of the club belong to the Ohio Home Economics Association, which automatically makes them a member of the State Organization. ' For a new club, the F. H. A. has been outstandingly active. They have held several parties with the F. F. A. and have served numerous banquets for different organizations. Most important of these banquets were served in the cafeteria at the Girl Reserve District Conference, the County Achievement Meeting, the Hi-Y Mother and Son Banquet, and the Industrial Arts Depart- ment District Meeting. With the money earned in this manner, the girls are planning to buy silverware or dishes for the Home Economics Department The club sponsored the cake raffle in the carnival, and sent two represen- tatives to a state meeting at Columbus last fall, and two other girls to the Ohio Home Economics Club Conference at Ohio State University this spring. This F. H. A. has accomplished many things. and will no doubt, become one of the more important clubs in our school. FUTURE FARMERS OFFICERS President - Lawrence Farison Treasurer - Junior Jennings Vice Pres. Kenneth Armbruster Reporter - Robert Bowerman Secretary - - William Vocke Advisor - - - D. D. Shaw The Future Farmers of America has played a very important part in Napoleon School Activities since Vocational Agriculture has been in the High School curriculum. Twenty-four students are enrolled in this work and this year has seen a great increase in the number of projects being carried by each stude-nt. With the progress that has been made in the promotion of leadership and the interest shown in the various other worthwhile activities of Napoleon F. F. A. it can be seen that these boys have a right to be proud of what they have done and will be anxious to carry on. For we feel that agriculture is the back- bone of the nation and that it will be the enlightened rural people who can and will help meet the many challenges whichconfront the American people today. -BUCKEYE-- CAFETERIA That faint aroma that you just started to follow will lead you directly to the cafeteria. It would be easier for you, I imagine, if I told you just where you will find it. Remember the room in the Girls' Basement that used to be a play room, don't you? Well, that's where it is. You won't recognize it. The walls are painted in beautiful blue and rose with the kitchen section all in white. It's lovely. I You see that little lady just ahead of you? No, not that one, the one with all those milk bottles. She is Miss Bricker, the supervisor of the cafeteria. I guess it really keeps her busy but I'll tell you one thing, she keeps everything up to par. And those meals she serves, they're delicious. Of course Miss Bricker doesn't do all the work herself. She has three helpers secured through government aid and a student cashier to take care of the money. Practically every banquet served by some school organization was served in the cafeteria by Miss Bricker and her F. H. A. pupils. Certainly it's large enough. It has a seating capacity of 150. We are all proud of our cafeteria and as soon as you arrive you will see what I mean. VISUAL EDUCATION "Bring the world to the classroom!" The Hlms we have do precisely that. During the year we have had cross-sectional views of many of the industries in the United States as Well as sports, conservation programs and new inventions. Each Wednesday we had a noon movie consisting of two educational or semi-educational films and one comedy. During the year we have had feature movies and during each week many Hlms on scientific subjects were shown to science classes, as well as language, history and Industrial Arts classes. The projector was operated by students. These students were Jim Kerr, Bob Gunn, Sam Shook, Mary Jane Mead, Harry McAllister, Harold Dielman, Stan McClure and Kathryn Creager. Mr. Ort is the supervisor of this department. We are sure that under his capable leadership visual education will become more popular and be, in the future, of even more value than it is now.

During the schcol year it has established a school Employment Bureau, built a lost and found case. purchased a spotlight for the school bulletin board and distributed Thanksgiving baskets to the needy. As a means of raising money for such worthy causes as purchasing cloth- ing, food and glasses for needy children and helping purchase a public address system, the council sponsored school dances, a Ghost basketball game and the second annual school-wide carnival. In years to come, we feel certain that the Student Council will continue to be of great service to our school. --OPERETTA- QM JLllflb0lflW6f Jwe 74 Susan Clifton, the Sunbonnet 'Girl, is the orphaned child of musical parents. Her guardians H are Mr. and Nlrs. Abijah Scroggs, a skin-flint couple who have starved and stinted her. Mrs. Henry Coleman, the president of the State Federation of Music Clubs, arrives in the village to conduct a contest for scholarships in music. She is accompanied by her daughter Barbara, her son Bob and his chum Jerry. Sue, who does endless dish-washing in the Scroggs household, hears of this contest and wishes very much to enter. Mrs. Scroggs and Evaline, her daughter, harshly refuse, insisting she hasnt the proper clothes. Susan enlists the sympathy of Barbara, Bob and Jerry and tells them she believes her parents left some property. They call on Ezra McSpavin, the village constable, and persuade him to intercede in the name of the law. Appearing gorgeously dressed in the height of fashion, completely outfitt- ed in secret by the sympathetic Barbara, and singing her best-Susan wins the contest. Bob having olfered his heart and hand, but Sue supposing that his interest is based on sympathy for her, refuses to listen, saying she would willingly consider him it only she were wealthy and independent. ln the meantime .Jerry and Barbara come to a romantic agreement. Constable McSpavin found among Sue's possessions a deed of immense value, to a town lot in Los Angeles. This proof ot property removes the last barrier to the matcn, and the curtain falls on the prospect of a double wedding. Ample humor is afforded by various comic types, including Mr. Scroggs, the hen-peeked husband: Jerry, the breezy college youth, Evalina, the shrewd vixen, and Rueben McSpavin, the simple son of the constable.

The class of '40 was the host with the class of '39 their guests. The Mexican decorations made a very striking setting. The gymnasium was decorated to leave the impression of a Mexican patio. A huge fern banked pool was in the center of the gymnasium. A Spanish house at the far end, and Mexican scenes. and "Ferdinand, the Bull" on the side walls. Purple balloons simulating grapes hung overhead completing the attractive decorative scheme. ' The tables were colorfully decorated with strips of variegated colored crepe paper representing Mexican blankets. The nut-Cups were miniature potted cacti. The Mexican food very appropriately completed the theme. The Fiesta program: Conversar ------ Senor Andrew Lowry Llamar - Caballeros: K. Butterfield, R. Harrison, J. Funkhouser, A.

Gracios: Picorations - Marian Bowerman, Kathryn Creager, Betty Forney Program Cover Designed By ---- - Fred Mead '-PR'OPHECY- SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY I began my life in California, with about six million others exactly like me, each of us having a shiny new coat with a stamp of the Capitol building on one side and a picture of Jelierson on the other side. A "fella" like me has a tough life right from the start. First, we were chucked around in a large building called the mint, then I was wrapped in a tight pack- age with 39 other new nickles. It was uncomfortable, but we were new and shiny so the whole world was sunshine for us. XVe were put into a large box and then into a heavy bag. Suddenly I heard a terrifying grind and then a roar-we were moving. After bouncing around for hours. the noise stopped and so did we. It wasn't long before I got my first glimpse of the whirling outside world. But the sights were ruined before long because I was put into a drawer. "This must be the end", I sighed, for I was there for days. One day the drawer was jerked open: I was lifted out and sent sliding into a small black satchel. Soon I heard voices and then I was dumped out on a desk. "Here you are, Miss Curdes, nine dollars in bills and one in nickles." I was in some oliice for I could hear typewriters and accounting machines running at top speed. 'iTake it into the oliice and give it to Miss Gunter, please," said a pleasant voice. I was taken into a large. private ofiice. From behind the desk I could hear Mr. John Uackl Crahan busily dictating to his private secretary. I knew then that I was in the main oliice of the Crahan Dry Goods Co. of New York, San Fran- cisco. and Illinois. "Here, Boy". grunted Mr. Crahan in his business-like tone and I was placed in the open palm of the office boy. Hastily I was shoved into an already crowded pocket and as the boy went out through the outer ofiice I heard him call out. "I'll be back in two jerks," The next thing I remember I was put down in exchange for a coke. For a while I was in sort of a rut. passing from one high school student to another. Finally, I was shoved through a ticket ofiice window of a theatre but it was so late that before long I was wrapped and sent traveling again. My next stop was in the ofiice of Ward Andrew, a motion picture director. He used me for cab fare. Later, I was given to Robert Brillhart as he got out of the cab next morning. He is one of the most famous diplomats in the county and. believe me. I was really proud to be put into his pocket. From him I went to a lady dressed in a very plain. business-like suit. It was Marian Bockelman, who is the famous playwright in the moving picture industry. As she thoughtfully passed down the long hall of the office building she carelessly tossed me into the air. each time she managed to catch me securely. As she was passing one door on which was printed "Head Hair Stylist", it flew open and out dashed a small blonde girl with large blue eyes. She had a stack of papers in one hand and a book in the other. I instantly recognized her as Betty Forney. With a thud Miss Forney and Miss Bockelman collided! Papers flew! I went rolling down the hall. wondering what new adventure I was going to have. Suddenly I felt a crushing pressure on my sides. Someone had stepped on mel When the person stooped to pick me up I realized that I was face to face with Edith Helberg. She carried me into another oflice. It wasn't a large office but comfortably furnished in excellent taste. XVhen the girl behind the desk looked up from the card on which she was busily sketching I knew it was Marian Bowerman. one of Hollywood's most clever designers. She was designing a wardrobe for Edith to take on her concert tour of the East. After a brief chat the two decided to go to the races. Before the race started I was given to a little boy who was selling programs. Boy! Was I lucky! He put me right out where I could see everyone. I saw Robert Bogert. a news photographer perch- ed high above the crowd on a roof-top. With him was Robert Heilman, the journalist, who was feverishly taking notes about the spectators for his column. It was his interview with Paul Bressler, President of the American Railroad Co., on his opinion of "The Need For Railroads" that caused world wide comment. Gee! Martin Bargman was there. He owns a collection of war relics estimated to be worth Sl00,000. XVith him was Lawrence Clausen, the Dare-Devil of the Speedway. Just to the right of the radio box where Margaret Clausen, Betty Agler. Lucille Ash, and Lula Badenhop were busy describing the huge crowd to the listening audience I saw the box reserved for the Napoleon Red Sox. winner of the National League Pennant. Their owner, Melvin Davis, was in the adjoining box, and with him was the season's sensational pitcher. Rapid Robert Hoover. Some outstanding members of the club are: Ralph Dehnbostel. John Fruchey and Keith Hick- man. Melvin had his club in California for Spring training. In the next box was that small but mighty Robert Bauer. Ping Pong Champion of the World. Gee, it seemed as though every important person in the world was there. The lady that was dressed so fashionably and came in with the latest moving picture heart throb was none other than Mary Helen Pohlman. It seems a pity to see her give up her brilliant career but she is planning to be married as soon as her nance iinishes his latest picture. 'I was given to a man for change. I didn't know him at first. It was Karl Albrink who is now a professor at the University of Southern California. On his way home he stopped at a drug store for a few purchases. The clerk was none other than the quiet. friendly girl Marcella Clifton. Along with some other coins, he gave me to her. I was once more on the go so rapidly that I can't remember all the people I did come into contact with, but I did stop with Orvil Benskin, Superintendent of a school of Industrial Arts. His assistant was Donald Fronce. Orvil sent me with one of his pupils out to the American Supply Company for some drawing material and I saw Kathryn Creager. Commercial Artist. painted on the oflice door. -PROPHECY-I Miss Creager. I could see was working with the speed and expertness of a specialist. I was handed to the clerk Naomi Elarton. and it wasn't long before Esther Engler entered the store with her small son to buy school supplies. I was given to her as change and before very long I was in a department store. where I could see Mary Heaston going around with a small note book, making notes of articles that she is to buy. on her next trip to New York. I was in someone's purse. I didin't know for sure whose. I saw the purse contained the usual compact. comb, handkerchief. etc.. of a working girl. It was Lillian Armstrong headed for a place to spend her lunch hour. She is hostess in a large Metropolitan theatre. Upon entering a cozy little tea room we saw the friendly proprietor. Doris Houck. greeting her luncheon guests. In a huddle at one table I saw James Funkhouser. the District Attorney dictating over a sandwich to Virginia Gebhart, his secretary. Across the room I saw Dr. Jane Gilpin. who aifteg bgcoming a registered nurse became a medical doctor. With her is her famous doctor us an . The waitress was Sadonna Farison. In her usual quiet manner she says. "May I have your order please?" In the adjoining room I saw a huge banquet table. By the decorations on the table I could see that it was a convention of the F. F. A. President Lawrence Farison ad- dressed the group. Kenneth Armbruster was toastmaster. The guest speaker was the chief pilot of the National Air Lines. He holds the world's finest record. I-Ie was Ray Cozad and he looked very handsome in his neatly pressed uniform and military cap. Suddenly, the room was filled with whispers and everyone started to nudge his partner. At a glance, I saw that it was Robert Huston the world's hottest drummer. Being so excited I hadn't noticed that I had been picked up but the awful truth came to me when I was tossed into a cash register drawer. but I could still hear what was going on for I heard someone come to the bar and ask for change for 50c. The drawer flew out and I was given to this great drum- mer. My heart skipped'a beat. He sauntered over to the nickelodian in the corner and I saw that he was going to play the latest recording of his own composition. I-Ie set the dial and I went' tumbling down the slot to a box with hundreds of other nickles. while the music came pouring out. ' There I was at last. nicely situated and satisfied. But gee. what a racket came out of that machine. I often wonder if they are all like that. After that short rest period I was on my way again and this time I landed in the experienced hands of our little secretary Marie Keller. who. after starting in Mr. Oldfather's office, has become one of the foremost typists and man- agers of the nickelodian business. But I did not stop there for long. I was hurried off to the an . I The next thing I knew was that I was being handed to Junior, by that model little wife. Patricia Valind. to be placed in the collection plate. The sermon was excellent. Such a preacher I have never heard as this tall. handsome Andrew Lowry. who just starting his career. has swept the countrv bv his interesting and inspirational sermons. From the collection plate I was promptly placed in an envelope. by the capable hands of the missionary society's new secre- tary Mildred Shartzer. and sent "To them thar hills of Kentucky" where I landed in the pocket of schoolmaster James Weaks. I had a nice week's rest before being put into circulation again. By and by I landed in the possession of Carl Wurthman. who is going to Washington as a senator. I was placed into the hands of Miss Marilyn Renneckar. the social secretary to the President of the United Can Company, Frederick Mead. From the can compnay I was passed around very quickly finally landing in the hands of the famous sports announcer. Russell Lude- man. who is to broadcast this vear's Indianapolis races. From him I went to the hands of the well known lecturer Marianne Speiser. who has proved that a woman can have a career and be happilv married. She has been secretly married to a well-known doctor for the past year. Miss Speiser has also succeeded in receiving recognition for her painting. which has been her hobby since high school days. To celebrate her wedding anniversary Miss Speiser has been invited to attend the Green Derby anniversary. Upon entering the Green Derby we were met by that outstanding receptionist Grace Nelson. who has received more famous people in one night. than most people see in a life time. And talking of famous people I saw that famous director Richard Westhoven. who produced the best picture of tbe year. "Folks Along the Maumee". Mr. Westhoven is known as one of those selfmade men who. having started out in his father's meat market. worked his way up to his present position. Next we were entertained by Hollywood's newest singing star. Vernabelle Rhody. After this interesting evening I was again given to the taxi driver. James Osborn. who is starting a new Osborn Taxi Line. with cut rates. Mr. Osborn then graciously hands me to one of his buddies. Earl Meyers. who has built a high powered engine. which they will soon take to the Salt Plains. and attempt to break the present speed record. I sure made mileage then and felt relieved when I was handed to Betty Gillespie. who has just been voted as the per- fect school teacher, with personality, looks. and the ability to teach. She lent me to her good friend Betty Travis. but Betty. who is always on the go. didn't have time to spend me. so I had one hectic experience with her, which is enough. She is assigned to the ambulance emer- gency squad and did we go. Oh! After that experience. I was jingled around quite a bit and finally landed in the hands of a little newspaper boy. who after work. hurried to the movies to see the next chapter in the thrilling cowboy series, starring Junior Zimmer. After that hair-raising episode I was fully at my wits end and needed my daily rest. but to top off my experiences I was given to a pretty little air stewardess. Betty Schuldt. and was taken up and up until I could hardly breathe. At first I couldn't imagine who she handed me to but when I heard her laugh. I recognized her as Clara Netta Kelley. Please don't let this get out. but it is rumored she was on her 4-PROPHECY- way to meet a famous diplomat in New York. My, how these young people get around nowa- days! She opened the window, I slipped out, falling faster and faster until at last I hit. I landed with a splash in a large pool of water. but presently a hand grabbed me and I was taken swiftly to the surface. I found that I was rescued by the noted Aquacade Swimmer, .Ioy Walker, who had introduced the new duck dive, now the newest craze of all swimmers. Mr. Walker then entertained me with a very enjoyable evening. First we stopped at the prem-- ier of the movie "Gone With The Cyclone", starring Robert Shondell. the newest find, who is competing with Robert Taylor in Hollywood. I also saw the famous sound man, Robert Strayer, who has just published a book giving hints on how to imitate Charlie McCarthy in three easy lessons. From this highly interesting spot we traveled to a lecture given by Eliza- beth Murphy on her experiences in the deep Congo as a missionary. It is very evident that Miss Murphy is putting her soul into this missionary work. While listening to Miss Murphy a tall tanned man came striding in and took a seat beside us. I finally found out that this was Paul Konzen. the famous explorer. who "brings them back alive." After the lecture we went to hear the great scientist and speaker Sam Shook, who has just recently secured a position as Professor of Science at Oxford. After the lecture we joined Professor Shook and went to see the opera "Carmen" And while listening to the last strains of the sad love song I happened to slip out of Mr. Walker's pocket and roll noisily down the floor. My I felt embarrassed. I wished I could stop. Soon I felt myself being picked up by gentle hands and being placed into an opera bag. Here in the darkness I happened to make out the card and found to my surprise, I was in the possession of Miss Betty Jean Lowry, who is the well known Dean of Smith College. Vifhen Miss Lowry and I returned to the college I was surprised to see so many girls sitting in front of the radio, all earnestly listening to the sweet voice of Miss Ruth Limpach. giving advice to the love lorn. and telling Rebecca that New York is already filled. Miss Limpach is a registered nurse, and is planning to specialize in eye, ear, and throat treatments. Her career is closely watched by all women. XVhen this program was completed the girls were quickly hurried off to bed by their supervisor Harriet West, and all was quiet. The first thing after waking up. I was securely wrapped in a paper, and sent for a ride in a garbage wagon. the kind that has four wheels and flies. gosh. I thought that some- body had made a mistake. surely they hadn't meant to throw me away. To top things off the wagon started to burn and caught some shrubbery on fire, too, The next thing the whole neighborhood caught afire. In the next instant I heard a-siren clang, and before long the firemen put out the fire. Seeing the main fireman I recognized him as Arthur Reimund, the man who had saved a dog on a fourteenth story window ledge. Dr. Walters. George Walters to those who knew him personally. was there talking in a very loud voice and I finally found out that it was his shrubbery that had been burned. I laid there for two days undiscovered. I was stepped on and kicked around until I finally landed in the heart of New York City. Here I was picked up by Russell Smiley. the roving street reporter. advertising a toothpaste for bright smiles. Mr. Smiley interviews many people. Among them was Ethelda Wittenberg, the famous chicken specialist. who had won over S1000 at the Cleveland Poultry Exposition. Another famous person whom he interviewed was Kathryn Marie Zoll. a multi-millionaire. She is one of those lucky persons who became rich overnight in the South American Oil business. After Mr. Smiley's hard days work, we rode home on the street car and I saw the lovely face of Marian Knepley smiling down at me from a poster which was advertising Lux. the soap for a beautiful complexion. After my en- joyable ride with Mr. Smiley I was given to a struggling young dress designer. Ruth Samlow. who was introducing a new color. While her colleague Verna Kolbe, has just introduced her newest find in the line of finger nail polish. These new ideas must be put over with a bang. and it is rumored that Miss Forney has made plans to negotiate with Miss Kolbe. Miss Kolbe rids herself of me quickly and I find myself in the exclusive "Petite Bazaar" dress shop. Miss Lucille Wiechcrs and her sister, Lora. manage the business activities. Together these two sisters are accomplishing much, and their shops are now branching to different parts of the country. It is also rumored that they are planning to get the famous designer. Miss Bower- man. to design something different for their representation to the fashionable Christmas party always given by that social limelight Kathleen Walker, whom it is said never spends less than five thousand dollars on her exclusive parties. So I was taken into this glamorous home by the Misses Wiechers, and was, with them, introduced to many famous people, among whom was Miss Betty Walters, the well known newspaper woman, who covers all the important social events. As I was waiting for our next move I saw a group of people at one end of the fioor. and so wondered whatiit was all about and to my surprise I saw Mr. George McColley. the famous Basketball coach talking to one of his old school associates Robert Siebold. who is known throughout the United States as the paramount Welder. Mr. Siebold was summonded by the Queen of England, while on her tour in the U. S. I also saw the famous "woman of the track", as people call her, Miss Ruth Reichert. Miss Reichert has been noted for the training of some of the most famous horses that have ever been entered in a race, and has become considerably rich through them. The party was over too suddenly and I hadn't seen all of the famous people. And suddenly, I heard the voice of Miss Ireta Lemon, a well known government agent saying. "Thank you so much: am sorry I bothered you but all 1940 nickles are being recalled to Washington for a reprint." So now I am headed toward Washington to be made over and I will look forward to my future road of experiences, although I do not think I shall ever forget any experiences I have had with you.
