Looking back over the past year we see many things we would do diHerently if we had the chance. lint, there are also many things we would not change, and these are the things which give the certain- ty of success for next year. The board next year will protit by our mis- takes and successes and the "Sassa- mon" will be all the better for them. This year's board wishes next year's board the best of luck, the greatest success. 'l'o the "Sassamon" we wish a pros- perous year and ever increasing popu- larity. Both are bound to come under the management of next year's board. "Gluck .tuf !" EDITORIAL ' Now the end has come, Commence- ment is over, and the Seniors of 1916 are about to find their place in the world's work. l.et us go forth, courage- ously. strong in the belief that only through giving do we receive. Let us not sit back contented to look on, but let us enter whole heartedly into the task which lies before us. Yery naturally do our thoughts turn back to the last four years of work: and it is indeed interesting to recall the many pleasant times we have shared together. The work we have done here, and the knowledge we have attained, give us con- fidence to face our new duties and we have, withal, a feeling that we have not spent in vain these last four years. M. D. W. Evidently the time has come when the present Seniors will no longer be such. The class History attempts to portray their past school life and the Prophecy their future. We would send with the Seniors the heartiest of good wishes, and hope that they all have the fullest measure of good fortune. So much is always said to and about a graduating class, that it is doubtful if they carry away one worthy suggestion that was given them, and use it to advantage. "Ex- perience is the best teacher," but a principle or idea imbued with Ambi- tion can cut short considerably the way to success and contentment. Se- niors, is it not wise to select your guiding principles and stick by them? lt is really dangerous to go out from school into business or professional life without possessing a definite con- viction as to what your future course of self-conduct will be. Employers and others will analyze you and put you down for what they find you. It is very much worth while to try to make good. XV. B. M.

LATIN PLAY On May 10th, the Senior and Junior Latin classes together with a few cho- sen Sophomores, under the direction of Miss Davis and Miss Clifford, enter- tained the other Latin classes and the teachers, in the gymnasium, with the play "Pyramus and Thisbe" given wholly in Latin. The cast occupied the seats in the center of the gymnasi- um, while the bleachers on both sides were occupied by the audience. In the first scene, the house, consisting of the boys and girls, was successfully built by the aedificator, Annie Rosen- thal. Some of the unfortunates repre- sented the doors and hinges of the res- idence. Pyramus, Ralph Wilde, and Thisbe, Marjorie Twitchell, were seat- ed in their respective houses by their parents, the father, John Wardell, and the mother, G. Wilde. When the par- ents had made their exit, Pyramus and Thisbe, in very modern fashion, made arrangements for a meeting that even- ing at the tomb of Ninus. Then the aedificator announced the close of Scene I, and ordered the walls to dis- perse. The imaginary curtain in the second scene rose on Ninus, in the person of R. Foley, who walked sedately in and calmly announced "Mortuus sum." A tomb made of the lunch table, covered with sheets, was placed over him, cov- ering all but his feet. The lion, john- son, attired in a shaggy fur rug and masked with a lion's head, made of paper, in the drawing room, roared very effectively and succeeded in frightening Thisbe away. Pyramus, a trifle late, seeing the lion's footprints in the sand and no Thisbe, tragically killed himself and fell gracefully to the ground. Thisbe returning, and finding her lover dead, thrust the same dagger into her side and fell lifeless beside him. The audience were held breath- less at this point, so realistic were both suicides! Next the mourners, wearing black crepe paper bands on their arms, and weeping profusely into black crepe paper handkerchiefs, surrounded the dead ones. The sun and moon, neces- sary to the setting of the story, were represented by Lucille Ambler and Frieda Diehl. They wore placards which read respectively, "Ego sum Sol," "Ego sum Luna." At the end of the second scene, the dead forms arose and proceeded to brush the dust from their garments in a very lively manner. After this, Latin games were en- joyed and refreshments were served. The audience later dispersed, much pleased with the unique entertainment. A. R. , OUR COVER The Sassamon was named after john Sassalnon, the Indian helper of john Eliot so the Sassamou is really an Indian paper. That is why we desired an In- dian design for our cover. There is no other town so full of In- dian association as Natick and South Na- tick. The Indians gave the ground for the first meetinghouse in South Natick and helped build it. NVhen john Eliot translated the Bible into the Indian lan- guage he had an Indian to help him, and that Indian was john Sassamon. So it is entirely fitting and proper that our cover design should be Indian. It'is the work of the Art Department. 8 TH li SASSAMC JN 5? 5- ff: SL: Z? , fx: ? S,'fl.UT.'fTORY The class of 1916 extends to you all a most cordial welcome tonight. XVe are glad that you are able to be with us at this time when we receive our reward for four long, yet seemingly short, years of work. We have reached the goal for which we have striven-graduation. lthile I was considering what 1 might say to welcome you here, the thought came to me, the very letters of the word "XYelcome" stand for many useful, guid- ing thoughts which we might well keep in mind for the future. The initial letter XY could represent the wisdom we have attained here under the careful guidance of our teachers as well as the welcome that we, all of us, feel toward you tonight-the pleasure of having you with us. It expresses our worth to the world in the future, our worthiness as citizens to serve our town, our state, our country! lf designates our education: the.edu- cation that our town has given us as an example of its faith and trust in usg an education that has fitted our class for bigger, better, broader citizenship. lf, likewise, designates our earnest endeav- ors in our school life. Our equipment is good, our armor is strong: so let us meet the battles of life face to face. l. stands for the great field of l.ife which stretches out before us. It stands for the language of that life-for the language and the lessons that we have yet to learn. I, symbolizes the love that we x bear towards our Alma Mater, a love that has increased through the close com- panionship of our life hereg and it rep- resents the loss of these friends and these teachers that have meant so much to us. C indicates first of all our class. The class of 1916! Long may it live, united in spirit though our ways may be far apart. May we be able to come back as alumni, when opportunity affords, and live over again scenes that are dear to us. C is for the character we have been moulding during the past few years. XVill it stand the test of Life? C stands for this Commencement. Let this day be the brightest and happiest of our high school course. Let us be of good cheer and enjoy these last few hours while we still have them with us. O expresses the oneness of our hearts and minds on this occasion, a parting which is one of both joy and sadness. It represents, too, the door of opportun- ity. XVe, alone, can find the key which will open to us, perhaps, Success. M points to our class motto "I serve." Certainly one worthy of any class. Let it be our motto through life. None bet- ter could we find. M speaks of the mem- ories that will be left us after Commence- ment is over. Some will be happy, some, no doubt, will be sad. It would not be right if it were not so, for sadness, in its opposite quality, serves only to heighten our happiness. lf reminds us of the end, the parting of the ways. that is so near, Some are to enter directly the school of life- THE SASSAMON 9 some are to continue their studies fur- ther at schools or colleges, yet may we always be loyal and true to our Alma Mater. We have all received our ele- mentary lessons of life, the time now here when we are to test life for our- selves, but there will come to us from time to time echoes of the Past, sweet and clear, bringing back to us scores of memories. Our Commencement, how- ever, will be, I am sure, the happiest of all our memories. To our happiness, again we welcome you most heartily with the hope that this happiness of ours will prove a pleasure to you. Marguerite D. Whitney. VALEDICTORY Four years, four happy years spent in the pursuit of knowledge have flown by as if they were one, and now, at their completion, our hearts are filled with con- flicting emotions. Visions of the past Hit before our eyes. We see ourselves as we first entered high school, freshmen- small, frightened, yet proud of the fact that we had to go to school so early in the morning. As sophomores we were still more proud. We were no longer freshmen-we studied geometry and read Shakespeare. As juniors we looked down upon the lower classes and looked after them in a kind of big brother and sister fashion. And then we were sen- iors. Ah, seniors! There is music in the word. That blissful state, the goal of all attainment, when attained, to be en- joyed! What cared we for the other classes. We had passed through their trivial joys and sorrows and had reached the heights. We were monarchs of all we surveyed. Memories are sweet, sadly sweet often- times-we may not live them over again. Yet that is well, for it is far better to live in the future than in the past. As for the present,-all this is the "present"g the memories, the satisfaction of work well done, the joy of attainment, the mystery of the future. The future! Far more interesting than the past, or even the present, is the fu- ture. What are we going to do? What is going to happen to us? "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players, . l They have their exits and their en- trances: And one man in his time plays many parts,"- So sang the bard of Avon, the gentle, wise man, who knew how to put in words the unfathomable things one thinks and cannot say. How can we know what will come? lt may be good, it may be evil, but evil or good, it will be great in proportion as we make it so by our deeds. We must cle- cide what will be our goal in life and choose the course we will follow to at- tain it. As with Bassanio, there are three caslcets before us to choose from, in one of which is hidden Happiness. The golden casket-that is wealth, the silver is fame, while the leaden one rep- resents a life, not famous nor rich, but full of utility to man. Happiness is not found for all in the same casket. There- fore it behooves us to consider wisely e'er we say, "Here choose I: joy be the conse- quence!" We are young. joy seems our natural lot in life. Into the world of busy, prac- tical men and women We will bring our ideals, our hopes, our enthusiasms. The part we play will be the messenger who brings good news and cheer and encour- agement. Of all our great store of en- thusiasm we will freely give. We shall love the world and the world will love us, we, who find, "Tongues in trees, books in running brooks, and good in czferyflzing !" The future is pleasant, it beckons us enticingly. The present is fast becoming past. Why linger longer over our dreams and prophecies? Yet, "Parting is such sorrowingf' l would say "farewell" 'till it were morrow. Our teachers, our schoolmates, our high school-we are going to leave them all tonight. Our teachers, who have done so much for us, who have made us what we are-how can we show them our appreciation? "More is their due than more than all can pay." And what is our little compared with 10 THE SASSAMON "more than all?" Dear Schoolmates, our friends, you, who will take our places next year, be loyal to your high school and in so doing be loyal to yourselves. Be co-workers with your teachers and remember their beads are wiser than yours-their ways are best. Dear Iligh School, we may pass on tp other scenes of life, yet never can we forget the happy hours spent within thy walls. In the Garden of our lives we have planted rosemary for remembrance! Farewell! Miriam Eldridge. CLASS POEM Classmates we've all assembled here to- night To bid "farewell" to high school days now past, Ilut from us naught can ever break those ties Of faithful friendship made always to last. Through these years of toil and pleas- ure Spent in this our dear high school, llave we striven and won together Access to a higher goal. E'en as the shell brings inward from the sea The murmur of its void and unknown home, So may we now, the class, "nineteen sixteen" Bear worthy Natick echoes where we roam. Thus we stand this night of parting, Met before the opened gates, Now, we pass to paths of promise Where new life before us waits. And as we sadly leave our honored high school Grateful for the good we've learned therein, We thank once more, our teachers kind and good For garlands of success they've helped us win. Natick High School days are over, "Farewell" to them all we say, As to greater tasks before us Pass we through the upward way. Launched at last on life's broad sea, Ever let our motto be "I serve." Esther Pendleton. CLASS ORATION AN ASPECT OF MODERN LIFE It is said of the ermine that it will often suffer injury rather than allow pol- lution to touch its glossy coat, but take away the coat and the animal is worth- less. VVe have ermines in higher life, those who love display. The de- sire to seem, rather than to be, is a fault which our age, as well as all other ages, must deplore. Sham is carried into every department of life, and we are being cor- rupted by show and surface. We are be- ginning to judge people more by what they have, than by what they are, we have too few Hamlets who are bold enough to proclaim, "I know, not seem!" Although reputation may in some de- gree be taking the place of character, yet the latter has lost none of its worth, and, now, as of old, is a priceless posses- sion, wherever found. Its absence and presence, alike, prove its value. Have you not at some time or other talked with those whose brilliant wit, piercing sar- casm and well framed sentences failed to conceal a certain indescribable something which made you distrust every word they uttered? Have you not listened to those whose eloquence dazzled, whose feigned earnestness incited in you an enthusiasm equal to their own, and yet, have you not felt that behind all this there was lurking a certain something that repelled the admiration which their genius at- tracted? That something is want of character, or, to speak more truly, the possession of bad character, and it shows itself alike in nations and individuals. Aeschines was one of the greatest ora- tors that ever thrilled a Grecian audi- ence. His masterpiece was his oration against the crowning of Demosthenes. It was a masterly production, well ar- ranged, excellently written and effective- ly delivered. Its merits were so great, that, when many years later, as an exile, he delivered it before a foreign audience, they were astonished that it had not won for him his cause. Nevertheless, it fell a THE SASSAMON I I like a chilling blast upon his hearers at Athens, because he was the hireling of Philip-in other words a traitor. Napoleon was one of the greatest gen- erals of all time. He swept like a de- stroying angel over almost the entire eastern world, showing a military genius which has never been surpassed. For a while he seemed to have robbed fortune of her secret, and bewildered nations gazed in silence while his success grew greater, until it seemed as if he would become master of the entire world. Nevertheless, although he was endowed with a perception keen enough to discern the hidden plans of opposing generals, he could only see one road to immortal- ity-a path which led through battle- fields and marshes wet with human gore -a path which led over rivers of blood and streams of tears that fiowed from orphans' eyes-a path along whose way the widow's wail made music for his marching armies. Now he is fallen, and over his tomb no mourner weeps. Tal- ent, genius, power, these he had, but character, he had none. But there are those who have both in- fluence through life and unending prais- es through death. There are those who by their ability have inspired the admiration of the people and held it by the purity of their character. It is often remarked that some men have a name greater than their works will justify. The secret lies in the men themselves. History but voic- es our own experience when it awards to' true nobility of character the highest places among the enviable possessions of men. Perhaps we could not find better illus- trations of the power and worth of char- acter, than are presented in the lives of two of our own countrymen. Their names will ever be dear to the hearts of the American people and will always be held in sacred memory. The truest tears of sorrow ever shed by a nation for its heroes have fallen on their honored dust. They were the father and savior of their common country. One was the ap- pointed guardian of its birth, the other, the preserver of its life. Each formed a character whose foundations were laid broad and deep in the purest truths of morality-a character which stood un- shaken amid the terrors of war and the calmness of peace-a character which did not allow either cowardice upon the battlefield or tyranny in the presidential chair. Thus did they win the hearts of their countrymen and prepare for them- selves a lasting place of rest in the ten- der memcries of a grateful people. Character is not the gift of fortune. In this at least we are not creatures of circumstances: talent may be the gift of nature, position in society, the gift of birthg respect may be bought with wealthg but neither one nor all of these can give character. It is a slow but sure growth to which every thought and ac- tion lends its aid. To form character is to form habits which are the very stand- ards of our lives. Either consciously or unconsciously we are doing this each day. There is character formed by our asso- ciation with each friend, by every desire of the heart. by every object toward which our affections go out, yes, by ev- ery thought whiih fiies on its swift wings through the dark recesses of the brain. We all know that repetition forms habit, and almost before we are aware. we are chained to a certain routine of action from which it is difficult to free ourselves. We imitate that which we admire. If we delight in stories of cru- elty and atrocity. We find it easy to be- come a Nero. If we delight in gossip, and are not content unless each acquaint- ance is laid on the dissecting table, we form an unenviable character indeed, and we must he willing to bear the con- tempt of others. But if each day we gather some new truths, and guard every thought and action that they may be pure. we shall form a character that will be a fit background on which to paint the noblest achievements. The formation of character is a work which continues through life, but at no time is it so active as in youth. At this time impressions are most easily made, and mistakes most easily corrected. It is the springtime of life. the season for the sowing of seed. There is no complaint if a neglected seed time brings a harvest of want. As little reason have we to I2 THE SASSAM ON murmur if in after life we discover a character dwarfed and deformed by the evil thoughts and actions of today. Character is the individuality of the person, shining from every window of the soul, either as a beam of purity, or as a clouded ray that shows the impurity within. The contest between right and wrong is ever going on. Day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment our characters are being formed, and this is the all important question which comes to us fainter and fainter as we journey from the cradle to the grave, "Shall those characters be good or bad?" Dear classmates, it is character not less than intellect that our instructors have striven to develop in us. As we stand at the end of our high school course, and as our memories linger on the words of wisdom which have fallen from their lips, we are more and more deeply impressed with the true concep- tion of duty which they have ever shown. But these days are over. No longer shall we listen to their warning voices, no more meet them in those familiar class rooms, yet the lesson which they have given has sunk deeply on our hearts, and it shall not soon depart. John Wardell, '16. CLASS SONG Tune-"Fair Harvard" I. Oh, for this school the highest of praise is the best, Hear the motto we've all learned to love, It is this, "I Serve," and it means N. H.

We have many other pretty girls, you understand, but these are the prettiest. Our Handsomest Boy is Joseph Burke. Joe came near losing to John Mahaney, but evidently several young ladies preferred Joe's angelic smile and twinkling brown eyes to Jack's dark earnestness UD. The Most Popular Girl. Grace Mon- tieth again heads the list with Mar- garet McGrath not far behind. "Oh, yes," you say, "it was to be expected of Miss Montieth, but what is Miss McGrath's excuse ?" Gentle reader, have patience and you shall see. The Most Popular Boy. john Ma- haney is here without any near rival. Even the peerless joe sneezes in his dust. The Cleverest. Our sad and solemn- faced editor-in-chief carried off the honors of this competition, rivaled by Marguerite Whitney, John Wardell and Dick Spencer. The Class Wit. A practically unani- mous vote was cast for Mary Grithn, although Mahaney and Spencer and a few others came in for their share. The Biggest Flirt. Miss Margaret McGrath. Now you see, gentle read- er, why Miss McGrath is considered so popular-simply because she makes herself so. The pleasant art is not conhned to her alone, indeed there were nine others quite skilled in it. fProbably because this is Leap Year D The Most Versatile. Here indeed was tumult and confusion until Hazel Sprott calmly stepped forward and took the lead. Hazel quite deserves the honor. One moment we see her cheering her courageous basket ball G THE SASSAMON I 3 players on to victory and the next very realistically playing the part of "Chief Mourner" in "Pyramus and Thisbef' Her competitors were many, chiefly Marinofsky, Coleman, Miss Montieth and Miss Chamberlain. Most Dignified. How hard a task to pick out from a band of dignified seniors the MOST dignified! "Impos- sible !" you exclaim. But no! Miss Edith Halperin leaves all the rest be- hind. She is supreme, omnipotent in her dignity. Juniors, take notice! The Jolliest. Who, but Mary Giller- an, could be the jolliest? She wears her hair on the top of her head, but she's never grown up. If you ever catch her looking sober, ring the fire alarm, we want to see what she looks like then! There are other rogues who belong in this list, no doubt. Only their good luck has saved them, fortunate crea- tures, but we'll find them out! CLASS HISTORY In the beautiful month of September of the year 1912, there came to the old high school building as promising a crowd of youngsters as ever stepped within its studious halls. With bewil- dered gaze they wandered about, looking for Room 6, 10, or 11 as the case might be. One even succeeded in falling down- stairs and arriving rather promptly in Room 4, causing much surprise, and alarming the Senior English class to some extent. But in spite of all their mishaps they went their ways courage- ously, somewhat awed by the contemptu- ous glances of the Sophomores, the con- descending smiles of the Juniors, and the dignity of the Seniors. The next year they became Sophomores, with all that class's love for teasing the "Freshies." In 1914 they became Juniors, planning for that greatest of all events, the Junior Prom. Tonight, you see before you most of that same crowd of youngsters, the Senior Class of 1916. It bids you wel- come, and at the same time farewell, for its members are now going forth into life's paths, and some. we hope, will bring glory to that institution to which they owe so much, dear Natick High School. Long may it flourish! There is Forrest Lockhart, the only bashful boy the class can boast of. He blushes beautifully, and, under the care- ful supervision of some of our young ladies, has learned to giggle coyly. We of the Commercial Law Class do hereby guaranty, warrant, and swear to his ability to giggle as well as anyone we know. Typewriting was his bugbear but he went forth armed to the teeth and conquered it, thus gaining the admira- tion of some of us less fortunate ones. Our wish is that he may overcome his shyness in like manner, and sail smooth- ly o'er life's seas. Edith Halperin is a quiet, dignified girl who has studied faithfully during her four years' course, and, therefore, ranks third highest in the class. She has served on the Sassamon Board very suc- cessfully, doing her part in every possi- ble way. We feel sure that Edith will always do her duty as she has in school, and will be able to say, "I have done my best," when her life's battle is fought. Alice johnson, writer, actress, and stenographer had been a very valuable member of the class, but she left school during this year to accept a position as stenographer. Wie hear that she is on her way to success, and have no doubt she will reach it. She has always been good-natured, jolly, and carefree. She admires dimples, having some of her own, but is afraid to show them because she has to smile too broadly, and is afraid of stretching her mouth, or show- ing her teeth, I don't know which. She was much surprised to find her 'name on the honor list, exclaiming, "Well, did you ever! Do you suppose it is a mis- take? I believe I'm going to faint !" and various other bright remarks. I guess, Alice, you worked to get your name there, otherwise, it would be among the missing. john Mahaney is somewhat of a Chi- nese puzzle. One of our teachers re- marked that he either needed a nurse, a high-chair, and a rattle, or a policeman, she couldn't decide which. The nurse would be more acceptable, I believe. He has difficulty with spelling, and would be thankful to anyone who would be I4 THE SASSAMON I kind enough to give him a dictionary, standard or otherwise. His curly locks are envied by the girls, and great is his ability for getting someone to do his work for him. lt has been said that John never does anything wrong, for he never does anything. So great was our faith in his honesty that we elected him treas- urer of our class to give him practice for his future occupation, Treasurer of the Natick Five Cents Savings Bank. Alice McCordick is one of our quiet little girls. She worked hard, doing her best, and taking her misfortunes calmly. She is greatly interested in pearls, and the Wilder the Pearl the better she likes it. XVho knows but what her taste may meander towards diamonds in a few years, and she may get a diamond from a Pearl? Far be it from me to look into the future, but who can tell? Mary Powers has always liked history, and has always done very well in it. Her second year she had an idea that study periods were made for one to learn the Tango, and typewriting periods to go out, buy cream cakes, and walk up XValnut Hill to eat them. She has out- grown these wild fancies, however, and is ready to settle down as a nurse. She is an ardent Suffragist, and, therefore, deeply interested in military training. She is going to fight for her rights, and win them at the point of the bayonet. XVC presume this is why she practices target shooting, and takes a day off to go horse-back riding. She is evidently go- ing to be a member of the cavalry. VVe wish her. success in her undertaking. Helga Benson's course has been very uneventful, as far as we know. She has moved among us as quiet as a mouse. She is very reticent, and if she has any dark secrets we have been unable to un- earth them. However, if her manner is as quiet everywhere as in school, we can assure you that her life will be still and peaceful. May she find her knight er- rant and live happily ever after, a thing that occurs only in books. lohn Peterson, our football and base- ball captain thinks that school is a post office. and we girls special delivery clerks. He frequently wrote letters to one of our blondes, only about an essay on "Hotel Life" though. He threatened to have me arrested for intercepting the mail, a criminal offence, as you know, but was too tender-hearted to carry out his threat. May he ever leave as much business to Uncle Sam as he did to us, and the post office will never go into bankruptcy. After the Senior Play, we think he would make a handsome minis- ter, and would carry off his part with much dignity. Ermalina Bianchi is another of our actresses. She was leading lady in the Senior Play, and took her part very well. Ermalina has a voice that is well suited to speaking. She is a pleasant, digni- fied young lady, always willing to help one in every way she can. She was a member of the Henry Wilson Debating Society, giving several beautiful read- ings, much to the delight of its members. She is an honor pupil, having worked hard to gain that position. Mary, McGlone has excelled in book- keeping, maintaining an average of "A" throughout her course. She worked quickly and accurately. We believe that she is destined to be ta bookkeeper. Her friendships have been formed in a pleas- ing manner, and few will forget her. James Connell, better known as jim- mie, found that the typewriting room possessed great attractions at various times, especially when occupied by a dark-haired. blue-eyed Senior, named Margaret. The Charles River has been a favorite resort when this same Senior was inclined to go canoeing. I wonder what the future holds for Jimmie and this attractive person? Marion Welch comes from South Na- tick, near the Dover line-otherwise she is all right. She has to walk a couple of miles every morning to get a car, 'and has never been known to miss it. Her career has been very quiet. She has plodded along. working hard, and saying nothing. Her successes are almost unknown, so reserved has she been, but we assure you they have not been few. She catalogued books in the Bacon Free Library, and for a while thought she would like to be a librarian. Now, however. she is unde- cided as to just what she will do. Julia Slamin is another member from TI-IE SASSAMON I5 South Natick. She has had to run for the car many mornings, rushing along, hat in hand, and sweater half on. She believes in preparedness-for others. She is inclined to think that she was born under an unlucky star, but in the future we hope she will overcome this dark and gloomy outlook, and decide that it was a comet which she was born under. I-Ier idea of an adventure is a ride in a jitney from Natick to South Natick in the middle of winter. She is entirely welcome to such adventures as far as we are concerned. Her dream is of a position in Sherborn Prison. VVe hope it comes true, but we have our doubts. She is too gentle to arrive there. Mary Burke is rather fond of Pitts Street, also twins, especially if they "am roses" CAmorososj. She takes life as it comes, never uttering a word of pro- test. She showed her executive ability in arranging all details for nine girls to take an examination for office helper in the NVatertown Arsenal. We wish her success in all her ventures. Emma Smith is one of our Stars from North Natick. She is a very agreeable girl, never quarreling with any one. Her loyalty to N. H. S. is unquestioned. She will make many friends, and all will find her cheerful and willing. The only thing the matter with Emma is that she is too good. She is apt to have her toes stepped on a number of times when she gets out into the world, but if she does I hope she will have courage enough to strike back, and strike hard. Laura Buell has this year developed an extraordinary liking for minister's sons. Their saintly appearance appeals to her innocent mind. She fails to con- sider that 'appearances are deceitful, but no doubt she will some day realize this. She enjoys bicycle riding, but is more fond of Walking and dreaming of the things that are to be. We hope that she will, in the years to come, become a min- ister's wife. and feel sure that, should this occur, she will be a great success. Margaret McGrath is inclined to be frivolous. Beware of her smile, for it is like the spider's web-once in, you will never get out. She likes cookies, especi- ally if they are bought at the Union Store, but do not mention common crackers to her. They are too plebian for her taste. She has forbidden my telling any secrets, so her past must be shrouded in mystery, a veil, beyond which human eye can never reach. So beware! Breakers ahead for those who oppose her wishes! John Coleman is not a bashful boy, no indeed. If you tell john you have read such a book, he will say, "Is there a girl in it P" If you say you attended a party, he will say, "Were there many girls there?" Girls are the only things that trouble john. If there were no girls on this earth, John would be in another world. He loves the ladies, short ones, tall ones-he loves them all. In Commer- cial Law he spent all his time looking out of the windows at the young ladies, saying every time one passed, "Look at this one! Pretty nice. what? Only she ought to tip her hat a little more over her left ear." John certainly is an authority on girls-at least, in his own opinion. Grace Montieth has been a dear, lova- ble little girl all during her course. She is the smallest person in the class, but not the least important. She has been very popular, being chosen Vice Presi- dent of her class both Junior and Senior years. She was also manager of the girls' basketball team. She Finds Newton a verv attractive town, particularly the male section. NVe wonder why when we see the admiring glances of some of our seniors. But then one can't always ac- count for a person's taste. She probably doesn't bclieve in booming her home town. Some day she may realize her mistake and "trade in Natick," but not now. Florence Chamberlain came to us from the 8th grade in Felchville. She has been a very bright pupil, and succeeded in obtaining an honor mark. She is fond of Domestic Science, and will some day put it into practice when she goes to housekeeping, which from present indi- cations, will be very soon. She likes everybody, and everyone likes her, for she is ever readv to laugh, and seldom to crv. Vtfe wish her the best of luck in picking out her den and Denney. Adelaide Augustin has always loved I6 THE SASSAMON school. She thinks that one who plays truant is very wicked. She likes Sher- born apples, especially rosy reds. Her aim in life is to be Young. At the rate she is now going, we expect that her aim will be reached in a few more years. We hope she will be happy, as well as Young. Mary Gilleran is the jolly girl of the class. Her giggle is very well known to all, teachers and pupils alike. Her laugh- ter is really contagious. XVe presume this is why our bashful boy learned to giggle so well. We should enjoy having a giggling match between the two, but doubt our ability to get a competent judge to decide which was champion. "Laugh and the world laughs with you" is Mary's favorite motto. She has been a brilliant student, and a very rapid stenographer. Stenography is her pro- fession. Cheer her on as we do. ' Mary Griffin helped to make life seem bright in English class when things began to lool-: dark. Her remarks were never lacking, and were very amusing. When asked if she would like to teach the class, she replied that she would like to teach us something. Her opinion of us is evidently not very flattering, but we don't mind. Perhaps, as she grows older and wiser her ideas will change. She has been very kind hearted in spite of her sarcastic remarks, and we have enjoyed having her with us. joseph Marinofsky has had for a mot- .o, "Better late than never," and has practiced it in his classes, rushing his work in about five minutes before the term closed. He never lacked excuses though. Oh my. no. He didn't hear the lesson, or he left his book at home, or he had to feed the chickens. Never was an excuse invented that joe didn't try. However, boys will be boys. He came through all right, and has that much to be thankful for. He considered himself a privileged character. So did we. He hasn't been an angel by any means, but he is a nice boy just the same. and we would like to hear great things of him, such as that he has become a rival of Caruso. And now allow me to introduce to you Mary Casey, a talented young lady who joined our ranks from the 8th grade. She has served dutifully on the Sassamon Board, also on the school bas- ket-ball team. She will now read to you the history of the remaining members of the class, and I guarantee it will be in- teresting, as her writings usually are. Anna Fitzpatrick. CLASS HISTORY No. II. . The history of the Senior Class this year is linked by closest bonds with that of the school. Yet, leaving the momentous four years in the history of the school, we ma well pause at this height and look far down to the beginnings of our own life here. I shall begin with our President, Mr. john Wardell, who is well-known to all. Fully realizing that this space can never adequately chronicle the activi- ties of our zealous President, I, there- fore, will merely strive to mention the most important. As President of the Senior Class and also of the class in junior year, he has proved that there is no one as competent within the school. We have had several stormy sessions at our recent class meeting on financial mattersg during it all, how- ever, it was an inspiring sight to see john restore order. Not once during his executive year has he lost control, and when the gavel falls usually the opposition falls therewith. john has also been one of our active Business Managers of the "Sassamon." For his future we can only hope for a continu- ation of the past. One fair morning a bright yet thoughtful maiden presented herself among the ranks of the entering stu- dents to high school. Little there was to indicate our future Valedictorian, Miriam Eldridge, save perhaps a frankness of countenance. It soon be- came evident, however, from her daily class work, that her superiors could bring out the actual ability that has since characterized her presence among us. Her record for the four years, is one to be proud of. But as "every rose has its thorn," so the school gave Miriam her due and con- THE SASSAMON 17 ferred on her the honors of Class Edi- tor in her Freshman and Sophomore year, Associate Editor in her Junior year and Editor-in-Chief in her Senior year. We need say nothing of the enormity of the task, and doubtless it would be of no avail, for to none but herself is there a fair concept of the mental strain, which the completion of such works entail. We could go on telling Miriam's accomplishments in volumes, for she is also an excellent pianist, and basketball player, but my space is limited, so I close, with the wishes of all for a great future. Every class contains a certain five or six who either by excessive burn- ing of the midnight oil or by the use of the gifts that nature has bestowed upon them shine a little brighter than the other intellectual lights around them. Marguerite Whitney is one of these leaders, for she has gained sec- ond honor, being salutatorian of our class. We are not qualified to say which of the two reasons is the secret of her success, or whether it is a com- bination of both, but at any rate Mar- guerite has one of the honors, which every student has struggled to gain during his high school career. It isn't hard to make a good guess at Mar- guerite's future. The past is an ex- cellent criterion by which to form our opinion-and having formed it, we ex- tend to her our best wishes. Anna Fitzpatrick is already well- known and needs no introduction. For it is Anna's pen that has written the other half of this history. In the class room Anna has been one of our popu- lar members. Her keen and sparkling wit has ever been a constant source of relief from the routine of class. There is no need to predict her future for one who has been such a successful student, will inevitably meet with like success in whatever work she may choose. llelen Brennan is one of those girls who are very popular with the men. She has always been a joy to the other sex, and cannot fund a place in school, but where she is forever the center of the gentlemen of our class. But to all Helen's companionship has been a source of pleasure. She has become known to us all as a jolly good class- mate, and it is the wish of all that every success attend her in the future. Another member of our class is Irene Cohan, who entered high school from the eighth grade. Her history is not only pleasing and happy, but also bright and illuminating. Irene has been endowed by nature with locks that shine resplendently and in spite of this fact or because of it, we know not which, she never allows herself to get excited. She possesses a disposition that is quiet and amiable and as a re- sult is popular with her classmates. She has won a place in our hearts as well as on the honor roll and we feel sure that her future will be one of success. Richard Spencer, my friends, is one of the few who helped to put the "biz" in the business affairs of the class of 1916. He has been the Subscription Editor of the "Sassamon," and without him, no doubt, the funds would be few and far between. The word "silent" is one of the chief reasons of his suc- cess, "little talk with much work" seems to be his working motto. How- is not alone a business scholar for he has ob- ever, Richard man, he is a tained a place on the honor roll and is If you do not believe also a runner. he is a runner, ask the people of South Natick. We predict great things for him in the future because his zeal for work and his thorough gentlemanli- ness have proved valuable assets to him in his chosen work. In the summer of 1913 Hazel Sprott first heard the distant bell of the Natick High School, for, two years she had spent in Framingham. But when about to begin Junior Year, she answered the Natick High bell. We are exceed- ingly glad she did, for she has proven a most capable Captain of our first basketball team. She has also worked like a "busy bee" as Art and Exchange Editor for this last half year. She is to be given great credit for her suc- cess in this school, and to be sure she has been given it, for she is an honor I8 THE SASSAMON pupil. Iler future will be one to be looked on with great pleasure by her friends. There are so many good things that could be said about Geneve Wilde, that it is diflicult to know just what to say. For four years she has taken the whole college course with all its terrors, and she has come out amongst the highest in rank. Her friends, who are innum- erable know her as a bright and happy companion. Geneve always looks on the right side of life and thus her dis- position is sunny and exuberant. Ge- neve will surely meet success in all her undertakings for her perseverance in her work will always stand with her. This class numbers amongst its members many who are gifted with a quiet disposition, and among these no one is more popular than Raymond Foley. It is a pleasure to know a man who has the courage of his convictions and who maintains them in the face of all opposition. Such a man is Foley, and when he feels he is right, no power can shake him from his stand. This is a true test of a man and he has sur- vived the test. As a student he has performed his work in a conscientious manner, and is highly deserving, since he is one of the few boys who have received honor. Our best wishes go with him. The memory we have of Alvin Lea- vitt is his smile. For he has always tried to keep aloof from everyone and everything, that would in any way make him conspicuous. But this smile shall never be forgotten, for it reveals his disposition, and we are sure that disposition will always be a bright star in his life. Ruth Cassidy has always been loyal to her school and classmates. Drama- tics has been one of her hobbies. and the success of the senior play can be partly attributed to her untiring ef- forts. She is Athletic Editor of the "Sassamon," and has worl-:ed hard to make the book a success: a glance through the Athletic Department shows some of the good work that she has done. This same energy applied to her future work will surely lead her to success. With pleasure we present to you Marion Walsh. Marion is a leader in all activities of the school, holding a place on almost every committee that our worthy President appoints. One of the chief pastimes of Marion is Ex- hibition Dancing. It would not sur- prise us a bit, dear friends, to hear that Marion had opened a new studio on North Avenue, where dancing is taught to the exclusive set. We all wish her the best of fortune. John Lee has always had a propen- sity toward athletics and his success has been due to his steady work on the gridiron. But "Jack" is a good stu- dent and has been rewarded, by his election to the Executive Committee of the English Society. His career has been marked by three qualities, quiet- ness, affability, and courtesy. Suffice it to say that "jack" should entertain no fear or doubt as to his future suc- cess. Quiet, modest and unassuming Frank Dudley has ever striven to keep the light of his talents hidden, and it was only after repeated urging that he was prevailed upon to accept the office of the President of the English Society. That position he has nlled with an ability, which would go far towards making any society successful. He has been also one of the leading athletes, taking part in all the sports of high school. Whatever vocation Frank may aspire to you may be certain that the application of his energies, as he is sure to apply them will result in success. To her friends Mary Fitzpatrick is a warm and jovial companion but it has pleased her to draw apart and to re- main quietly among us. Her unas- suming manner, however, has won the esteem of all her classmates and she leaves high school with the good wishes of all. joseph Clarke, our well-known sales- man in Oliver's Fish Market, is one of our popular young men. But the fact that he sells "fish" has nothing to do with his sense of truth, as he is a very upright man in every work he pursues. VVC are sure that this quality will bring THE SASSAMON I9 him success in the future. Hard as we have tried we have not become very well acquainted with Alice Scarry, but to all her friends she is a very jolly girl. She is a student, however, whose words speak ability and effort. In her quiet cheerfulness we have found an expression of the fin- est class spirit, and she is given the kindest wishes of all for a bright future. If a sunny disposition is a gift then Esther Gutterson has been especially favored by the gods. A charter mem- ber of the "I should worry" club, she takes things as they come-and if they don't come she leaves them. Which quality on the whole is an especially pleasant one with which to wander through life. Eleanor Simonds has, all during her course, been a faithful and energetic classmate both in the matter of study and in the social activities connected with school life. We can truthfully say that Eleanor has been a most pleasant companion and has won the friendship and good wishes of all. Now let us present Esther Pendle- ton, our Class Poet. Esther is very talented, especially so in acting, for she made a splendid success in the Senior play as Dorothy. Esther's lit- erary ability is exceptionally good, furnishing the English class with many artistic works. She has well deserved the honor she has been given as Class Poet, and she will leave with the kind- est wishes of all. Joseph Burke, our Class Prophet is worthy of great praise for his work on the Gridiron. For years he has helped to make up our team and has always proved himself capable of filling his position well. He is one of our most popular men, dependable at all times and energetic in every school activity. As we say "Good Bye" to "joe" we add, "Good Luck." Alice Branagan is one of the "beau- ties" in our class. She is respected and loved by her classmates as a true, up- right, persevering girl. She is very quiet but nevertheless very popular with all. She is very much in demand as 'a member of all committees and for every undertaking in school. We are sure her future will be bright and suc- cessful. And last but not least Regina Rivers is a very quiet, unasuming girl. In class she is seldom heard, being con- tented to sit back quietly and let the others do the talking, but when it comes time to show her ability, Regina is ready with the right answer. As we look towards the future we see noth- ing but the best for Regina, and we wish her every success. All is over. With sad hearts, with trembling footsteps, we have em- barked. The old familiar scenes have faded from our blurred vision, the mists of worldly strife have gathered around us. But the lessons taught us and the guidance given us by our teachers in Natick High School will al- ways guide us and help us onward. Mary Casey. COMMERCIAL CLASS PROPHECY As the school year draws to a close, my mind is filled with thoughts of my classmates and their future. My thoughts are interrupted by the buzz- ing of a machine, and turning around I discover it to be an aeroplane and I am invited to go riding. After riding among the clouds I drift slowly back to earth and alight on the Main Street, in front of Clark's Block. Every- thing seems changed. A huge sign hung in front of one of the stores and I recognized the name on it as that of one of my classmates, Alice Scarry--dealer in confections. Through the windows I could see Alice hurrying back and forth weighing and selling candy. I walked across the Main Street and met one of the most "dudish" looking chaps I had ever met in all my travels. He had on a tall silk hat, a monocle in his eye and swung a cane and his shoulders at a high rate of speed. I gave a sidelong glance and much to my surprise found it to be john Ma- haney. He informed me that he was living in Newport and had married an heiress. 20 THE SASSAMON I asked him several questions re- garding my classmates but he had been out of Natick for so long that he knew little of their whereabouts. He did know, however, that Ruth Cassidy, who was noted for "holding her own" in the Commercial Law Class, was now a successful woman lawyer, hav- ing won some of the most remarkable cases on record. I walked down by the High School and heard strains of music. The doors were open and I thought I would pay a visit for old times' sake. I went into the Assembly Hall and much to my joy and surprise found that the gradu- ating class of 1916 was having a reunion. julia Slamin and Mae Powers were sitting over near the door and I slip- ped in quietly beside them. Julia and Mae, who were very talkative as usual, gave me some valuable news. They were now coaches of basketball in Rad- cliffe and Smith Colleges. Ada Augustine was missing and they informed me that she was a toe dancer over in Europe and had danced before sovereigns. Alice McCordick was living in Mexi- co, having married a Spaniard whom she met after she obtained a position as Spanish interpreter. "XVhere is Grace Montieth?" I ask- ed. "Oh! She's a leader in high so- ciety in VVashington and is engaged to Reginald Van de XVyte, whom she met while soiourning at Palm Beach." Joe Marinofsky was sitting across the hall glittering with diamonds and dressed in the height of fashion. He was now a millionaire, having 'made his fortune as a tailor and designer in New York. Anna Fitzpatrick was busily occu- pied arguing about VVoman's Suffrage and I was informed that she was spending her entire time along this line. She was not of the militant type, however. Marion VVelch was holding the re- sponsible position as librarian in the Public Library in South Natick. In the center of a group of young men I noticed a dashing beauty talk- ing gaily, and on close observation found it to be Mary Burke who was a famous prima donna. I thought I would walk around the hall and meet some of my classmates, but was interrupted by the entrance of a pious looking minister, who was no other than Forrest Lockhart. He said that he was pastor of a LARGE parish over in Sherborn. . Helga Benson was sitting quietly by the side of a fine-looking man, who I was told, was a Westerner. Helga and he were married. Mary Griffin was rushing around, very business-like, as usual. She had become proprietor of th'e Colonial Inn, and was most efficient in her manage- ment. Not only were her guests well fed, but well entertained by her witty remarks, her pet scheme being to tell some funny story while her guests were trying to eat. Regina Rivers had attained her long desired vocation and was now a nurse in Washington. I wonder what the at- traction was there? Florence Chamberlain had married after accomplishing a great deal as an artist, her "masterpiece" being "A View of Felchville by Moonlight. "jimmy" Connell and "Jacky" Cole- man were ambitiously rising, having just bought out the Barnum 8z Bailey Circus, after knocking about the world for many years. The two of them, when unoccupied, charm their audi- ences with their FAVORITE SELEC- TION, "What A Wonderful Mother You'd Be." Margaret McGrath has finally "set- tled down" in matrimonial bliss right here in Natick. After breaking many hearts she seems satisfied with her CHOICE. Joe Burke has become a famous au- thority in athletics and has taken Percy Haughton's place as coach at Harvard. joe has outgrown his former bashful- ness and is very popular among the ladies. Ermelina Bianchi, always clever in dramatics, had won greater fame than Ethel Barrymore and Sarah Bernhardt as an emotional actress. We always expected such a career for Ermelina. D THE SASSAMON A 21 Mary McGlone was a demure little dressmaker, who pleased everybody, and was head of a large dressmaking establishment on South Main Street. Laura Buell was travelling around the world on her "honeymoon," after marrying a young man from Medfield, where she had gained great popularity as a soloist. Alice Branagan holds a responsible position as head bookkeeper at the Framingham Trust Co. Depositors have increased greatly in number. It is believed that a great deal of this is due to Alice's personality. Edith Halperin had become a well- known and popular authoress and sev- eral of her stories had appeared in va- rious prominent magazines. joe Clarke was a successful business man in Natick, coining money. Al- though he is a bachelor, several of the fair sex claim they will get him yet. Emma Smith has taken the laurels from Marguerite Owen as champion typist of the world. The sudden descent of the aeroplane roused me quickly and I realized this had been only a dream in which so many of my classmates had appeared. Mary F. Gilleran. TEN YEARS FROM TONIGHT When I opened my morning's mail I was delighted to hnd the enclosed card bearing this invitation-"Class of 1916 Natick High School is to hold a Reunion and Banquet at the High School Hall June 22, 1926, at 8.00 P. M." Losing no time, 1 made my plans to leave for Boston on the ten o'clock Federal Express from New York City, and telling my office force that the Stock Exchange would have a few days vacation until I returned, I hastily packed my grip and calling a taxi, made haste to the station. I was scarcely comfortably seated in the Pullman before I looked up and to my surprise saw John Peterson, whom I had not seen for ten years, and I tell you it was a warm reception we held there in the Pullman, when I discov- ered he was bound for the Reunion of the Class of 1916. Then we fell to reminiscing and talking about the old crowd. After discussing baseball un- til there was nothing more to say, we began talking about the "Only" Class of the Natick High School. John hadn't heard much that had happened to the Old Class, but had of course been writing to a young lady who lived in the Squash End district of the town and he was fairly posted. Arriving in Natick at 8 o'clock, a happy couple made its way to Assem- bly Hall. As we crossed the street, arm in arm, in front of the Colonial Inn, a big jitney came down upon us, stopping in front of the High School. The door of the jitney swung open and John Wardell stepped out, assist- ing two young ladies to the ground, followed by Professor Raymond Foley, all from Sherborn, Mass. We joined their group here and in talking we found that John Wardell had become manager of a branch store of the Ames Butter Company in Sher- born. John, having assumed a great political power in Sherborn, had been able to obtain a position for Miss Mari- on Walsh as teacher of Modern Dances in Sawin Academy, and also a position for Miss Helen Brennan as teacher of a Kindergarten. Professor Raymond Foley, through John's influence, had been made principal of Sawin Acade- m . ,As we all went up the school steps we heard a horn toot and the cram- ming of brakes, we looked around and saw. Rev. Richard Spencer with his wife, alighting from their Ford car. He had become minister of a thriving parish in South Hadley and looked prosperous. Entering the door, we saw Joe Mc- Gee taking tickets. Joe had taken three or four post-graduate courses, and on account of his great love for the faculty had decided to take the position of janitor which was former- ly filled by Jack Shay, now pensioned off. The first classmate I met in Assem- hly Hall was Eleanor Simonds. She told me she had taken a special course in bookkeeping, had passed the Civil Service Examination and had already 22 THE SASSAM ON become bookkeeper in VV. Doon 8: Son's Mill for the remainder of her natural life. lurning around I saw Alice johnson who was now playing with the Es- sanay Film Company. I remembered having seen her on the screen in New York when she had quite surpassed Mary l'ickford and Geraldine Farrar. Along came Iisther Pendleton and Marguerite Whitney arm in arm. They were still single, but both had great a-.nnration lor little butcher boys. I-onowing closely on their heels were llazel Sprott and Miriam Eldridge with whom I shook hands. Miriam had become physical director in the lligh School and Hazel was coach of the Girls' Basket Ball team which had won the championship of the state for the past season. llaving met only girls in the hall I decided to break away to look for my pals and whom did I run into but Mary Casey and Irene Cohan. These two young ladies were at work in the office of Arthur B. Fair, Successor to F. E. Yeager, Fire Insurance Company. Ar- thur had learned that in order to carry on a successful business "it pays to advertise," so Irene and Mary had their desks at each of the front win- dows of the office. Lots of Fire. At last breaking away from the girls I met jackie Lee. Jack, partly on account of his excellent form and beauty, had become physical instruc- tor at Wellesley College which had been in our school days a happy hunt- ing ground for jack. Along with him was Al Leavitt who was now a contractor of some fame. He was constructing at present a large office building in Natick, opposite the common which surpassed the VVool- worth building some fifty stories, for booming trade in Natick. Sitting down to dine at the banquet which followed, I met Esther Gutter- son who told me of her romance. After having received her diploma in 1916 she entered the Red Cross Service abroad. It all occurred at the bedside of a little Dutch hero who had been wounded in an air battle over the city of Verdun. All was over now and Es- ther had brought her beloved home to settle down. As I looked around the table I miss- ed one pal, Frank Dudley. The tele- phone then rang in the office and the oflice girl announced that Mr. Dudley would not be able to attend, as his youngest child was cutting his first tooth and needed care. While the feast was going on, I no- ticed that a large space at the table had been left vacant and an extra large chair was being placed there. In ques- tioning what the big idea was I found out that Geneve Wilde was to come yet. Geneve had broadened out some since I had seen her and she was with Barnum 8z Bailey's Circus as Sydney, the short fat girl. At my right was Mary Gilleran. Mary had grown a foot taller since I had seen her last and her continual smile had broadened to her ears. She had obtained a position as head sten- ographer for the Dennison Mfg. Com- pany in Framingham, Mass., where it is reported she has other interests. One other thing that attracted my attention was the latest hair-dressing of all the young ladies. In putting this question before the house I learn- ed that Miss Mary Fitzpatrick had be- come a fashionable hair-dresser and had opened up immense parlors which occupied the whole third floor in Clark's Block. It was 12 o'clock when the banquet ended. The next day seated in the Pullman bound for New York I thought what a great class it was that graduated in 1916, and surely put Na- tick on the map. FINIS.

MY LITTLE OLD BRAIN My little old brain seems covered with rust - For balky and barren it stands: And my little lead pencil is worn to dust And my eraser is ever at hand. Time was when my little old brain worked fair, And my pencil would seldom halt, But that was the time when I had no care For verse or a rhyming fault. lfVhy don't you come when I call, oh thought Why don't you answer? I said. Then lying down on my little cot I dreamt till the darkness fied. And as I was dreaming, inspiration came And worked out my poem for me. But the hours were many ere daylight came And my little old brain worked free. Ay, faithful and ready the prose thought stood Each in the same old place Awaiting a call from out the wood A chance to achieve some grace. And I wonder, as gazing that dull brain thru Into the dust that has gathered there What has become of that thought I knew Ere I waked me and combed my hair. Marian Wright, 'l4. HGLEANED FROM A 'PRE-MEDIC' " About two years ago the American Medical Association, of which Tufts Col- lege Medical School is a member, voted that all medical students shall have had in addition to a four years course in high school a year of pre-medical work including the study of Physics, Chemis- try, Biology, and either French or Ger- man. The purpose of this course is primarily to familiarize the student with the sci- ences on which his future medical course is based. Another purpose of this course is to accustom the student to the environ- ment of a medical school. To take a high school student from the Latin or Algebra class-room and then to plunge him, without further preparation, into the totally different realm of Anatomy is to produce a severe mental strain upon the student. By means of companionship with the upper class men the novice is given an insight into his future work. When I tell some people of what my course consists it is not unusual for them to remark-"Gee, what a snap." But it is no "snap" I can assure you. Physics for us is a specialized course for future medical students, and our lecturer tries to make it plain to us that physics is inanimate physiology. Anyone with a pronounced antipathy for irritating odors and complicated equa- tions I should not advise to take our course in chemistry, for chemistry with all its trials and troubles is the life and death of a "pre-medic." Biology, the twin of physics is a much more peaceful study which, besides add- ing to a man's general knowledge, is a "first-class aid in the bridling of one's temper. just imagine, if you please, that you were searching for a minute organ- ism under high-power objection of a mi- croscope. Perhaps you may find one af- ter a half an hour's search, and then you will hasten to inform your neighbor of your good fortune when presto !-he has escaped, and the headache which the search has given you'is in vain. Let those who imagine that German will be the death of them read "Ban und 26 THE SASSAMON Tatigkeit des Menschlichen Korpers," and Klcmperer's "Klinische Deagnostikf' 'llhey will never grumble at "Wilhelm Tell" again. In regard to social life at school, any one of our students will tell you that Tufts is an extremely sociable place. I don't believe that any student in there ever died of melancholia or loneliness. To hear the conversation of the students about their class banquets one would be almost lead to think that they never did anything but eat. Each class has its ban- quet besides whatever dances and recep- tions they may care to hold. To be sure, we have to go to school six days of the week, and on Satur- day afternoon we feel as though we could try the "Rip Van Winkle stunt," but we all acknowledge that we are glad when Monday morning comes. "Arnold Buster Carrington," 1915. JUNIOR PROM Friday evening, April 28th, the an- nual reception of the Juniors to the Seniors was held in the Assembly Hall. There was a goodly number of stu- dents and former graduates present. The patronesses were Miss Elva Coulter and Miss Caroline Clifford who, with the officers of the Junior Class, President, Joseph Dwyer, Vice President, Frieda Diehlg Secretary, Harold Robinson, and Treasurer, Julia Oliver were in the receiving line from eight to eight-thirty. Dancing was greatly enjoyed from eight-thirty until twelve. This was due to the excellence of Allen's Sing- ing Orchestra, to the fact that the ma- jority of the Juniors had taken special dancing lessons for the occasion, and that there were two moonlight num- bers. The committee in charge of the re- ception included the following: Wal- ter Montieth, Eleanor Bowen, Lucille Ambler, A. Carl Jensen, and Annie Burns. Those on the committee on decorations were Eleanor Bowen and Norman Trippe. The class is elated over the fact that their profits were over twelve dollars, due to the fine work of the above com- mittees. To the business men of the town who so kindly assisted them, the class wishes to express its appreciation. N. S. T.

C. H. by the score of 12-1. The game was postponed one day on ac- count of rain and was played at Wal- tham on April 13. By superior playing in every department of the game Natick brought home victory by the score of 7-3. Fair played a star game in left during Peterson's short sickness. Natick 6, Braintree 4 On the nineteenth of April before a large crowd Natick High defeated Brain- tree to the tune of 6-4. Natick led all the way but were threatened more than once. The Natick management departed from a time-worn custom and the game was played in the afternoon. ' Natick, Pinehill A. C. A game was scheduled for the 22nd of April with Pinehill but it had to be called off on account of rain. Milford IO, Natick 3 May 6, Milford easily defeated Natick IO-3. The game was played on a dia- mond in right field which accounts some- what for the looseness with which the game was played. VVayl'and 13, Natick 6 In a game postponed from April 26 Wayland trimmed Natick at the Cochitu- ate grounds on May 8, 13-6. Sloper started the game but was replaced by Bolster, Peterson secured his Hrst hit of the season, a home run to the road in deep centre. He also secured a triple the v l'g last time up. Hudson 9, Natick 6 At Coolidge playground on May I3 Natick Hign was defeated by lludson in an exciting and close game. XYith two down, two strikes on the batter and the score 6 to 6 Hudson secured three runs through a couple of good hits and a lot of luck. . Natick 5, NVestboro 3 Natick liigh defeated a greatly strengthened XVestboro team at XVest- boro on May 20 by the score of 5-3, Gilleran pitched a star game for Natick besides leading the team in picking hghts. Natick 6, Marlboro 4 In a Midland League game at Natick on May Z7 Natick High defeated Marl- boro by the score of 6-4. Bolster pitched his best game of the season securing thir- teen strikeouts and making the rest of the team Hy out. In the ninth with the score 6-4 and men on second and third Bolster struck out La Forme, the hard- hitting Marlboro captain. La Forme played a star game in the field. Peterson, '16 NATICK VS. FR.-IMINGHAM Natick engaged Framingham Memor- ial Day in their annual struggle before a record breaking crowd of over 1500 noisy fans, a large majority of whom were from Framingham. From the one sidedness of the score one would infer that the game was uninteresting but this is decidedly untrue as many fast plays were completed by both teams and the 28 THE SASSAM ON flashes of brilliant playing by the con- testants provoked many outbursts of cheering from their loyal supporters. Natick, practically a green team, entered the game at a great disadvantage, facing a vctcran team and a pitcher of four years' cxperience. Gillcran was selected to start for Natick and when he strode out to the box at three o'clock the crowd had fiowed out onto the field and the outer field was lined with automobiles and other vehicles. Natck was very nervous and Fram- ingham, taking advantage of this fact. had secured four runs before they had settled down and retired the side while Natick in return was retired by Hether- ton, Framingham's speedy twirler. Framingham secured four moves in the second and one in the third while Natick was unable to cross the plate. Gilleran was pitching good ball but the poor sup- port afiorded him enabled Framingham to obtain several easy runs. Connell was the first man to score for Natick crossing the home plate in the 5th, and their second score came in the 8th when Bolster, who had replaced Gilleran was brought home by Gleason's double. The longest hit of the game was made by Coleman, a three base hit to deep centre in the 4th inning. Natick's outfield, though hitting weakly, fielded faultlessly and the throwing of Fair, who shared the honors of the game with Bray, was rue of the features of the game, his bul- let like throws cutting off several runs at the plate. Daley, Coleman and Fair starred for Natick, while Hetherton, Bray and Hunnefield played well for Framingham. , Dwyer, '17.

Russell Frye has played a couple of star games at first base for the Pine Hill team this spring. "Russ" was one of the best first basemen that Natick ever had. In the Memorial Day game Natick out- field played a star game. They secured eleven putouts. Four by Peterson, four by Fair and three by Dudley beside three assists, one each fielder. Almost all the catchers were exceptionally hard espe- cially Peterson's catch of a long foul. It was one of the best catches ever made at Coolidge Field. ,' Dwyer, '17.
