June has come again and with it the nnal issue of the SASSAMON for the
Looking over the year that has passed, we see things that we might have
done differently if we had had the chance, but these mistakes of ours will
prove assets to the new Sassamon Board. Although we have erred, there are
some things we would rot change if we were given the chance, and we hope
that these actions of ours will be of help to the S.xssAAioN in the years to
come. The constitution we have made should strengthen and help the future
members of the Sassamon Board to produce a better paper. And of our
classmates we ask as a final favor to the SASSAMON and the school that you
do not forget the SAFSAMON, your school paper, in years to come.
- H. XV. H.
How many, many times in the last few years has that word been on
the lips of thousands, both here and everywhere. lrlardly a day passes
without our being called upon to show our loyalty to some cause. There
is loyalty to country, loyalty to our flag, loyalty to townspeople, loyalty to
home folks. Our special thought is loyalty to N. ll. S. No matter how
PAGE FOUR THE SASSAMON
loyal we may be to all other causes, if we refuse to support our school and
to stand for its best good, our loyalty is below par. No efficient and loyal
workman will run down the firm for which he is working. Then why
should we diminish the importance of our work here? The School corres-
ponds to a firm during our school years.
One of the best ways to show your loyalty to the school is by sub-
scribing to the SAss.xxioN. Begin the next year right by giving in your name
for the year's subscription before it is asked for, and then pay promptly.

As the time for parting has come. we are filled with mingled feelings.
both of regret and joy, regret, because our school days are over, joy, be-
cause we have the future before us. .
Those of us who have been on the Sassamon Board are eager to watch
its growth and development, for we shall always remember the trying times
we had looking for material which would be suitable to go down in black
and white as part of the history and life of the school magazine. The
SAssAMoN has grown to be a part of us. Let it be the same with all other
Editorial Staffs to come. XN'ork for it and success will be yours.
Now as we go out upon a new road, some of us to higher schools of
education, others tal-:ing up positions that will grow as we live, all of us
will look back to Natick High School where happiness reigned supreme.
It is to you whom we leave behind that we must bid an affectionate
farewell, urging you to remember our motto, and yours, that your chief aim
may be to serve. L. A. S.

Members of the Faculty, Teachers, beloved Parents and Friends, in
behalf of the Class of 1919, it is my privilege to greet you and to bid you
welcome to our Commencement Exercises.
It is indeed for us a great happiness to have you share in the successful
issue of our school career-a career which has prepared us to face courage-
ously Life's wealth of promise and possibility.
XVe find ourselves stepping from the platform of youth, and flower, and
song to the great Stage of Life, with its varied setting and its music attuned
to every chord of the human heart.
It is fitting that we should exult in the realization that our years of
study have been satisfactory to those who have helped us realize our hopes.
It is not, however, without a feeling of sorrow that we bid farewell to
these beautiful years that shall never come again, fraught, as they are,
with sweetest memories and linked together by bonds of deep affection. Yes.
there is sorrow even in this joy as we bid farewell to our Alma Mater and
go forward to play our part in the great Drama of Life. Let us hope that
our outfit is complete. The staging matters little and the costume is soon
forgotten, but the character of the Actor must endure.
Surely four years' preparation should find us equipped to bear with
equal zest the sunshine and the shadow, the pleasure and the pain that come
to us in every walk of Life: for we are told that all is not a song, nor
every day a feast.
So for the great work that lies before us we have need of strength:-
Strength to use, to the best advantage, the great gift of Life for which
we are so responsibleg
Strength to meet Pleasure, Success, Applause with a steady gaze, an
humble heart, and a noble, generous soul:
Strength to greet the 'Cross, to bear the frown, to smile away the tear
with dignity and submission:
Strength to keep ourselves unsullied in the warfare of Life and to
help others to reach the goal at which we aim tonight, as we stand on the
threshold of a new career. hapov in the knowledge that God's Blessing is
upon us and that vour appreciation and svmpathy are round about us.
Yes, we are happy-happv in our Faith that the Providence of God will
direct our str.-ps and light our path that we stumble not.-happy, too, in our
Hope to accomplish much in this great world,-happy in our Love for all
things beautiful and true.
THE SASSAMON PAGE SEVEN
And so we thank you for your presence and we bid you rejoice with us
in our great joy and share in the exnltation of the hour.
I serve. Now, at last, these words that have been symbolic of our
training, have helped us in the attainment of that goal, for which we have
incessantly striven four long years. These words are of greater significance
to us tonight than ever before in our High School career. At times our
path was beset with many obstacles, causing anxiety and uncertainty, but
now, with the achievement of all these, we find that which we have desired,
more brilliant and promising than ever before. It seems but yesterday that
we returned more or less joyously to school, that we might resume prepara-
tion for our life's work. The four years as we looked ahead seemed as
lengthy as our pathway seemed dubious. We anticipated many a trying
moment to come. VVe foresaw the long drawn hours spent with our studies.
We met the difficulties and have come forth, for the most part, victors.
It seems to us of the graduating class, as if our hands had but un-
clasped from that greeting of welcome we gave each other last September.
Now we must reflect upon the manner in which we will spend the quick
hours of tomorrow's existence.
Ufith the world and its achievements open to us, we are eager to take
up our life's work at this eventful moment, a moment in which there are
many things we might or shall say. and yet one can say none. VVe fully
realize our debt of gratitude to our parents, townspeople, and teachers. who
have worked quietly and faithfully for our physical, mental, and moral
training. Is this effort to be in vain? Qur future will be the answer.
, Now comes the time of parting, partings that make the heart sad. a
thousand unforgotten associations rush up: old memories, dim faces, some
already gone. soon all. Hence commencement is rightly called a sad event
in our lives. Friends must separate, time brings new changes, but deep in
our memories will repose the day's work and pleasures we have found
here. VVith the thoughts of this, one cannot think we will be lacking in the
answer. Now, we know only that we must say good-bye, Alma Mater.
Napoleon, one of the greatest generals that the world has ever known.
had talent, genius, and power. He had the ability to win great battles by
brilliant generalship but with utter .disregard for the rights of others, yet
he did not possess the character which is more important than anything else
for winning the friendship and respect of his fellow-men.
Abraham Lincoln, on the other hand, is an example of a successful man,
loved and remembered by all. He grew up brave and hopeful with an active
mind. at all times doing what he thought was right. He was self-reliant
and in his eyes everyone stood equal. In his backwoods home he learned

charity, sympathy, and helpfulness. He was chosen President of the United
States and piloted the union safely through one of the most difficult periods
of its history, never forgetting during this period the lessons of charity, sym-
pathy, and helpfulness which he had learned in his boyhood.
These two men, Napoleon and Lincoln, stand out with countless other
successful men of the worldg the memory of each has lasted for years, and
will last for many more to comeg Napoleon, for the battles he won and the
lives he sacrificed to gain his own objectiveg Lincoln, for his generosity
which gained for him the love and respect of millions of people.
So it has been since the beginning of time, men have been born, have
lived, and have died and their character has remained with their memory,
some loved as Lincoln, others merely remembered but not loved.
Before us lies the future, the days to come, when by our words, deeds,
and thoughts we, too, will form our separate characters by which we will
he known through life and death. XVe are as the poet Gray puts it, "Youths
to fortune and to fame unknown." XN'e may remain forever unknown to
fame, but, in going thru life, let us aim for one definite goal and remember
the advice of Lincoln which he used throughout his own life and which he
expressed before the Civil Wiar when he was running for a political office.
"Let us have faith that right makes might and in that faith let us to the
end dare to do our duty as we understand it."
Hut our lives are not all for ourselves. what does Natick expect of us,
what does the nation expect of us? Natick expects us to be good citizens, to
take part in its affairs and to be a credit to its schools that have taught us.
The nation also expects us to make ourselves good citizens and to be ready
to defend it at all times. lt remains with us,-our lives are before us-shall
we he good and loyal citizens or shall we shirk from our duty? Shall we be
remembered like Napoleon for the things we have done for ourselves, or
like Lincoln, because we were good and loyal citizens, self-reliant and
helpful? Henry VV. Hughes.

Ninetec-n's here. Nineteen's there
Nineteen is every where
We seemed to know just where to go

XYe'll be there. XN'aiting there

You'll hear us say-away to-day
The class of Nineteen-Natick

We seemed to know you'd miss us so

Listen to nineteen calling
We'll say to you when we are through
Good-bye to you Old Natick
Good-bye old N. H. S.
Happy days were spent within you,
Dear Old High School, yes and sad.
Lingering memories 'oft will haunt us,
Of the days so free and glad.
Cherished friendships be remembered
As We go our toilsome Way,
And the counsels of our teachers,
Brighten up each darkened day.
How we linger at the parting
Some we n'e'er will see again
But each tiny memory rushes
To delay the parting pain
Farewells given, Farewells taken
Last goodbyes are said with tears
For a gentle word oft meets us
That we cling to after years.
lVhen in later years we need them
As we go our toilsome way
Will they still be glad and carefree,
As they are upon this day?
Or will time have brought its changes
To the spirit like the form
And in place of joy and gladness
Bring them troubles in a storm?
But whatever fate will bring ns
Let us all with one accord
Try to follow all the teachings
Of man as Well as God.
Let us take each passing trouble
As a soldier takes his gun,
And go marching forth with firmness
Till the Victory is won.
PAG E TEN THE SASSAMON
So goodbye again Dear High School
Oh! 'tis sad to say goodbye!
NVhile we're leaving all behind us
There's a tear in each sad eye.
And goodbye to each dear teacher,
Then we'll go upon our way
VVhile the memory of their kindness
Lingers with us day by day.

Hazel K. Pirie.
In the month of September, 1915, a class of wide-eyed and innocent
freshmen began their career in N. H. S. They made the same mistakes
and were as "green" as all their predecessors.
XYe can truthfully say we outgrew these childish habits. The first two
years passed peacefully and uneventfully during which we gazed at the
Seniors in awe and wondered if we would ever gain that coveted place.
In our junior year, we were thought capable of having class officers and
consequently Charles Burke was elected President: Robert Buckley, Vice-
THE SASSAMON PAGE THIRTEEN
Presidentg Annie McKinney, Secretaryg and Elizabeth Eaton, Treasurer.
Our .lunior year is memorable to all of us for the splendid success of our
Prom, especially as the Prom is the first social activity in High School life.
In September, 1918, we began our last year as serious and solemn
Seniors. At last we had gained the long desired place! Now "lend your
ears" and you shall hear a bit of the history of our illustrious class.
XVhile we are speaking in solemn and serious terms let us start with
one of our sober CH classmates, Marion Ambler. Uur first and last recol-
lection of Marion is to see her coming in as the last bell stops ringing,
although more often than not, her entrance is some time after the bell has
stopped. lVe wonder how many perfectly good breakfasts Marion has
missed during the last four years. She certainly is a happy-go-lucky girl.
and a good time is assured if she is around. The last year her interest
seemed to be centered on a certain light-haired member of the Sophomore
class-could it be because he drives a car?
-lohn Nelson, better known as jack, Ne's, Red, and various other nick-
names, is an easy-going fellow who seldom gets excited and takes things
as they come. He was a member of the football and basketball teams and
was valuable to both. Last summer he tried various occupations but some-
how couldn't seem to find his vocation. We don't know whether he considers
remaining permanently where he is now, but we doubt it-unless the firm
furnishes a new truck. How about it, lack?
If one thing attracts Hester Hayward more than another, it is domestic
science. She has done excellent work in both this study and in sewing
during her four years. Doubtless both will prove of value to her before
many years to come. She has also been interested in the art course,-we
wish her luck in whichever of these subjects she may continue.
Elden Patterson was one of the football eleven and acted as the busi-
ness manager of the basketball team the past year. He, too. was out on
the working reserve last summer. XYe were always under the impression
that Elden was bashful but recent developments have caused us to change
XVe advise Ella -lohnson. alias Kloompy, to hit the trail of the movies.
for we think she is already far above Mable Normancl's class. She is also
extremely successful along other lines, as she has been a star player on the
basketball team for two years and is at the head of the class in typewriting.
XVe expect to hear great things from Ella.
VVe have never felt very well acquainted with Henry Hughes who,
throughout his four years, has come and gone quietly, having little to say
to anyone. He has been the SASS.-XMON,S editor-in-chief this year and has
made a very efficient one. VVe trust that his way through life will pass as
peacefully and successfully as have his High School days.
lVhen we look for a happy disposition, we hurl it in the person of
Hazel McGrath. She is seldom disturbed or worried, at least she has the
ability of keeping it to herself. Hazel is distinguished for preparing the
lesson for the next class in the class then reciting. XVe wish she'd tell us
how it's done. She played on the basketball team one year: we were sorry
to lose her this year. but she accepted the position of assistant manager of
PAGE FOURTEEN THE SASSAMON
the Natick Opera House and doubtless is the drawing attraction there.
llefore we begin to talk about Alfred Bailey, let us forget the sad but
certain fact that he comes from South Natick. XVith that out of the way,
we have a better chance. It is very evident that Alfred is our class dude for
his tasteful t?j assortment of socks and ties proves that. We gaze at him
in awe as he calmly walks in and out of recitations to suit his own conveni-
ence and we wonder how he does it. Alfred thinks he'd like to follow the
stage: after his success in the Senior play we're sure he'd make goodg the
only thing to prevent him is that he'd be too far away from the attractions
of XYellcsley College and Dana Hall.
The first three years of High School life passed quietly for Marion
Robinson, but this last year has produced a change. She is often caught gaz-
ing dreamily into space-we can't imagine what or who holds her attention,
or is it the spring weather, Marion? She has excelled in Gym work through-
out her four years and we wish her the best of luck in whatever she may
do after graduation.
The class is very glad to welcome three junior girls, Josephine Flu-
mtre, Margaret l.ee, and Clara Ripley who are graduating with us and hope
that success will be theirs.
Although llenry Prescott seems rather quiet to most of us, it is evident
that he has succumbed to the attractions of a certain blue-eyed junior. He
made a very efficient Athletic Editor for the school paper this year and was
manager of the football team also. His interest in class affairs has always
been manifested, and he has been a loyal member.
Helen Nutt has always been a calm and serene girl whom nothing
seems to disturb. She is one of the lucky ones who docs not have to worry
when exams. come, although a great deal more than luck has given her that
place. She has always been a conscientious and thorough student and well
deserves the honrzr of valedictorian. She is far on the way towards being
a famous 'ceflist and has charmed us many times with her music. llelen is
certain of success at whatever she undertakes, and as she continues her
studies at Simmons, she has our heartiest good wishes.
Another of our athletic heroes is Fred Fannon, who played on both
basket and foctba'l teams. He always played hard and fast games. In
the absence of our Yice-President, Fred acted as temporary V. P. It is
rumored that a certain fair haired Senior, also very athletic, has taken up
a good deal of his time and attention lately. How about that rumor, Fred?
Two girls who must necessarily be taken together tfor that is the only
way they are ever seen 3' are Katherine Skahill and Alice Sweeney. They
have both taken the business course. There is just one strange thing about
these two,-both their names always appear on the absence list on the same
day. XYe 1-an't seem to account for it.
One of our most athletic girls is Esther Yeager who played on the
basketball team this year. Speaking of athletics, they say that "birds of a
feather, Hock together" and possibly that explains Esther's liking for a fel-
The chemistry laboratory seems to hold great attractions for several of
our class. among whom is Leon Barnard, who practically lives there. He
THE SASSAMON PAGE FIFTEEN
has been a faithful student throughout his four years, excelling especi-
ally in chemistry. Although rather quiet, he is greatly interested in all class
A very quiet and demure lass is Hazel Hanchett, but we recollect that
"still water runs deep" and the ones who know her best can vouch for that.
Hazel has entertained us many times with her music and is always in de-
mand to play. She is our secretary and is a loyal member of our class.
May the best of success be hers at Simmons.
Knowing Alice McKinney as well as I do, it is not wise to say too
much. But l will say that one of the things in which she excels I ?j is bak-
ing bread. She prefers it baked very dark brown-indeed, almost black.
XYe'll say it's lucky she likes it that way and also hope the rest of the family
do. There has never been a doubt as to Al's loyalty to the class: she also
gained the honor of being Salutatorian-without burning midnight elec-
tricity either. We have a slight suspicion that her thoughts sometimes wan-
der to the north of us-in the direction of Canada-but we aren't quite
sure about it.
Two of our classmates left after the first term, Paul Hanna and Dwight
Forster, both to attend schools of higher education-Paul entered B. U.
and Dwght entered Tech, but is now attending Chauncey Hall.
There is just one thing that Gertrude Holden is mortally afraid of and
that is gaining in weight. NVe hope she will never have anything worse to
worry about. Gertrude makes a very petite and "chic" dancing instructress,
we don't wonder that her dance orders are always full. She has been great-
ly interested in athletics the past year. NVe wonder why!
Raymond Boardman, one of the Senior cast, surprised us all at the
high stepping he did in the play, for we always believed Boardy to be quiet
and sedate. Evidently looks are deceiving-from what we've heard of XVal-
thanz-anzl Boardy. May luck go with him as he continues his study of
chemistry at Ncrtheastern.
Emily Shannon joined us in our Junior year and we were very glad to
welcome her-especially as she left Framingham High. She is x ery quiet
-at lf-ast in school-but is interested in all the class activities.
Helena Dumars, who graduated from the ninth grade with the class,
has returned from Haverhill to join us again in our last year in High. NVe
are glad to have her with us, for Helena is a happy, merry girl, who always
enjoys a good time. New that the object of her thoughts is on this side of
:he ocean, we imagine she's perfectly content.
"Every dark cloud has its silver lining," is Bill Quinnls motto, although
there have been but few dark clouds on his horizon in his High School days.
Bill is virv fond of bright colors which fact can bi easily ascertained by the
many and various colored collars and ties he wears. But we're glad to wel-
come anything briglt to re'ieve the monotony of recitations. His cheerful
disposition and fun-loving nature will surely win his way through life.
Eva Bianchi, whose sincerity and loyalty to the class have always been
manifested, will win friends wherever she may go. Although Eva docs live
in Framingham. we forgive her for she knew Natick High was the only
p'ace to attend school. XVe wish her the best of success at Normal.
PAGE SIXTEEN THE SASSAMON
Bob lluckley is one of those fellows about whom you can say a great
deal and tbere will still be lots left unsaid. He was Vice-President of the
class in our junior year and was re-elected this year. Ile has tilled his
ollice very creditabfy, considering the fact that he didn't have to preside
over a single meeting. Besides being the best natured and the best looking
fellow tplease don't mention this, as he's very bashfull we think the title
of class blutl' should be his, too. llob is always "there" when there is any-
thing to be done, and certain success is assured in whatever he may do.
Yiola Nlctifone, who has always been interested in athletics, made a
very etlicient captain for the basketball team this year. She was badly hurt
m the game with Malden and was unable to play the remainder of the year.
Under her leadership the girls put out a hue team.
Another of our class with whom we do not feel very well acquainted is
Iiancroft llcinlein. He was chosen as one of the senior play cast but felt
unable to accept the part because of his work outside of school. Through-
out his four years he has been a faithful student and has always shown his
loyalty to the class.
From the minute Chick Burke entered High up to the present time, he
has been the acknowledged leader of the class. VVhat Chick said was con-
sfdered right. Besides being captain of the football team, which was as-
suredly a famous one, he found time to be our President, business manager
of the S,xss,xMoN, and at the time of the S. A. T. C., he attended Tech. This
last year his attentions have been centered on a certain brown-eyed member
of the class. Click is sure to succeed in life and we wish him the best of
lf izabeth Rice is one of those fortunate persons who never seems to
be disturbed by anything. Her career in High School has been successful
and sera-n:, probably owing to the fact that she has been a faithful and con-
scientious student. May the best of success be hers in whatever course she
The l1onor, if it may be so deemed, of being the smallest girl in the
c'ass goes to Cathryn Murphy. She is another whose dispositions must be
of the best because she's seldom seen without a smile. There is one thing
that Catlzryn Iinds hard to understand, though, and that is that whispering

Spooner evidently overlooked the "not."-consequently. we always know
when Lyman is about. If we all had his ability to accomplish things, we
wouldnt mind drawing 'the name of class clown. He was an assistant
lfditor of the S.xss,xxioN this year and filled that position admirably. In
the absence of our President. he acted as temporary President and has al-
ways been an active member of the class, taking a leading part in the Senior
play. Une teacher was heard to remark that Spooner made her think of
that song, "Follow the girls around," but he has not allowed himself to be

sult Dot. She has excelled in art work during her course and has been an
invaluable assistant to Miss Ratsey.
Hazel Pirie came from NVinthrop to join us in our Junior year. As
she and Mary Smith are inseparable, they should be mentioned together
here. They both waited on the Lunch Counter and were certainly extreme-
ly popular there. Mary has been Mr. W'illard's secretary this last year and
has filled this position very creditably.
I11 every class there is at least one who can always see the bright side
of things and it's not hard to guess who he is in our class. Wie think
"Smiles" must have been written expressly for Tom Heslin. During his
four years in High, he has gained renown on account of his perpetual grin.
Everyone agrees that he makes a fine policeman, and who knows but in
time he will stand at Main and Central Streets in place of the silent police-
man? Vtfhatever the future may hold for Tommy, it's sure to be cheerful,
for nobody can withstand his smile.
Thus ends the history of our famous class. Although we have all had
our failures, we have at last successfully completed our course, and, as we
look back on our High School career can truthfully say that some of the best
days in our lives were spent there.
PROPHECY OF THE CLASS OF 1919
It was a beautiful evening in the Orient. The magnificent palms were
nodding slightly as if in answer to the faint whispering of the wind. ,The
sun had been beating down on us all day but now as the evening shadows
were falling, it began to grow cooler and cooler. The bubbling fountains
were playing their sweetest music for our enjoyment. Tourists, like myself,
were lazily strolling along the fiower-bordered paths. As I was strolling
along, I was thinking of our graduation just ten years before and of how
much it had meant to all of us. Presently I came to the edge of a large
lagoon and hearing faint music in the distance I decided to rest there a
while. I had been there but a short time when a strange thing happened.
A large white ship drew slowly nearer and nearer. Finally it stopped and a
flower-twined ladder was lowered from the deck of the ship to the path
which bordered the lagoon. Almost immediately fairy-like visions began
to descend and to my amazement they came directly towards me. The first
one came up to me and after making a low bow began to speak, and my at-
tention was immediately arrested by the wonder of his words.
"I am the Wraith of Alfred Bailey. After graduating in 1919 I at-
tended Tech and soon after graduation I obtained a position as Gymnasium
Instructor at VVellesley College where I am so fond of all the girls that
I have decided not to tie myself down to one, so have never entered
just as I was about to question him he disappeared and I discovered
another one bowing before me. She was very small and I hardly noticed
her at first. At length she began to speak and her voice was so low and

musical that it was with great astonishment that I recognized her as an old
clunn of mine.
"I am the wraith of Marion Robinson. I attended Miss Wheelock's
Kindergarten School and after graduating from there started a kindergarten
in my home town. Soon afterward I decided to settle down and my kinder-
garten training proved very useful to me."
.Xnd with a low bow she disappeared to be seen no more.
The next one to appear began at once.
"I am the wraith of Viola McGlone. After graduation I worked for :1
few years in a hair-dressing establishment in New York. I then opened one
of my own, and as I never found anyone that I really cared for, have re-
Hardly had she finished speaking before another stood bowing before
"I am the wraith of Elden Patterson. After finishing High School
I attended Amherst College and after graduation started a Farm in North
Natick where I have been very successful."
The next appeared immediately and said,
"I am the wraith of Henry Hughes. I became an orator soon after
graduating from Harvard and have been an ardent worker in the cause of
I then heard light music and a beautiful vision appeared bowing before
me and in a soft. sweet voice began,
"I am the wraith of Gertrude Holden. After graduating from Simmons
College. I attended the Conservatory of Music and became the greatest
prima donna the world has ever known. After enjoying my brilliant suc-
cess for a number of years mv health failed and I settled down in Medfield
with an old admirer of High School days."
A loud noise attracted my attention so that I barely heard the wraith's
last words. With a final and louder scream than any of the preceeding ones
which he had emitted, another one of these funny objects appeared before
me and I recognized our Class Clown even before he spoke.
"I am the wraith of Lyman Spooner. After graduation I opened a
Ladies' Fashion Shop in New York where the latest fashions are shown
on living models, in fact I am designer of all the gowns which are made.
I soon became attached to one of the models and so we are now partners in

"I am the wraith of Ifva Bianchi. The year following High School
graduation I entered Normal School from which I graduated with Honors.
I then obtained a position as English teacher in XVayland High Schoolf'
No sooner had she spoken than another one began.
"I am the wraith of. Leon Barnard. After graduation I tried several
different lines of business but did not care for any of them so finally estab-
lished a Peanut Butter Factory of my own as I had had some experience
along that line and competed .with Forster's for first place. Soon after this
I became Town Clerk and held that position for several years. My wife,

VVoman's Club so that we were very popular for a time."
I had hardly time to laugh over Leon's adventures before the next in
"I am the wraith of Lena Dumars, After graduation I became a lec-
turer and gave many lectures on "The Reconstruction of France." Soon
I married and settled down in Haverhill."
"I am the wraith of Charles Burke," began the next. "After graduat-
ing from Massaclitisetts Institute of Technology I joined the Red Sox and
became the W'orld's best all-round athlete. I finally induced a charming
dark-haired girl, of whom I was very fond in High School days to share my
lot and we settled down in Medfieldf'
I had begun to think over the good times those two used to have
at High School dances when I discovered that someone else was speaking.
"I am the wraith of Emily Shannon. I soon entered a convent and be-
came a nun and I am very happy there."
Next a small, fairy-like vision datlced before me. finally ending with a
"I am the wraith of Dorothy Quesnal. At first after graduation I
continued with art but soon tired of that and finally became a chorus girl
where I had a wonderful time. Finally I went to Europe where I met a
charming Frenchman and so am now enjoying sunny France."
Soon a smiling apparition appeared.
"I am the wraith of Thomas Heslinf' it began. "I continued with
my work in the drug-store and soon became an expert druggist, bought out
Dola11's Drug Store, and still delight in treating the pretty girls that come in.
Many have tried to catch me, and one Leap Year one even had the audacity
to propose. but I am still a bachelor."
A tall thin form then appeared, and began.
"I am the wraith of Hester Hayward. After graduating, I took up a
Domestic Science Course at Normal School and taught for a while, but
soon decided that I had rather practice than preach."
As soon as she had spoken, the next one appeared and began.
"I am the wraith of Alice Sweeney. Soon after graduation I became
astenographcr and in the short space of two years fell in love with a fellow
that worked in the same office, thus ending my business career."
"I am the wraith of Raymond Boardman," began the next. "After
graduating from High School, I attended Harvard from which I graduated
with honors in chemistry, and soon after became a chemist. After frequent
visits in Brookline, I Finally persuaded one of Brookline's fair members of
societv to transfer her residence to Natick."
The next one bowed and began.
"I am the wraith of Mary Smith. After graduation I became a steno-
grapher and attained the marvelous speed of one hundred and fifty words
a minute. just by chance I happened to meet an old childhood acquaintance
one day and after a short renewal of acquaintances, we settled down on
a ranch out VVest."

Imagine Mary out Xllestl I was so surprised! It fairly took my
breath away. I had hardly recovered from my surprise when another vision
"I am the wraith of Esther Yeager. I attended Sargent's School of
Physical Culture after graduation and upon Miss Brennan's marriage I
succeeded her as Gym Instructor in N. ll. S."
The next began immediately.
"I am the wraith of VVilliam Quinn. After working at different trades
for a year or two I became reporter and Comic Section Editor for the
And with these words he vanished.
The next in line then began:
"I am the wraith of Ilazel McGrath. I soon became a movie star and
became almost as famous as Mary Pickford. I later married a movie actor
and we are both still engaged in the movie profession."
While I was still thinking about what I had just heard, I discovered
another object before me.
"I am the wraith of Bancroft Heinlein. I attended B. U. Law School
and became a successful lawyer for a while. But the call of farm life was
too strong for me to resist, so I bought a large tract of land in South Natick
and am making a specialty of onions."
The next to appear was a small, rather stout apparition.
"I am the wraith of Hazel llanchett. After being prominent in social
circles for a few years, I toured in Europe where I had a most thrilling ro-
mance with an English Baron and am now a Baroness".
Dear. quiet llazel prominent in social circles and a Baroness! VVould
wonders never cease! Another one of these funny objects was speaking.
"I am the wraith of Robert Buckley. After graduating from Tech I
went on the stage as a comedian and became even better known than Charlie
Chaplin. I am still engaged in that work and enjoy it very much."
The next began.
"I am the wraith of Ella johnson. After graduating from Sargents
I went to Hawaii whence I am just returning. I have been introducing
Gynasium VVork in the Government Schools there."
Then appeared a familiar stylish figure.
"I am the wraith of Paul Hanna. After graduating from Boston Uni-
versity. I traveled in Europe as International Correspondent for the Boston

"I am the wraith of Dwight Forster. After graduating from Tech. I
went to India as a representative of the Standard Oil Company."

college and as I was always fond of studying, I studied to be a doctor and
received my degree. I am now practicing medicine in Sherbornf'
"I am the wraith of Alice McKinney," began the next one. "After
graduation in 1919 I attended Simmons and after graduating, became a
Latin Professor at Boston University. After a few years of teaching I
went to Canada to live with jack."
THE SASSAMON PAGE TWENTY-ONE
I always thought Alice would marry jack as they had carried on a
regular correspondence even in High School days.
Another one appeared and bowed as the preceding had done.
"I am the Wraith of Cathryn Murphy. After having taken up sewing
for four years in High School, I established a dressmaking establishment
and make gowns exclusively for movie folks."
The next one spoke immediately.
"I am the wraith of Elizabeth Rice. After graduation I attended Mt.
Holyoke College after which I founded a Girl's School in Sudbury."
The next one was a light, fairy-like vision who was continually danc-
ing before my eyes.
"I am the wraith of Clara Ripley. After graduation I went on the
stage and my beauty won much admiration. I have been married twice
and my second husband is now seeking a divorce."
I was still laughing over poor Clara's misfortune when another ap-
"I am-the wraith of Henry Prescott. After having had such a bene-
ticial training in Palmer's Clothing Store, I decided to set up a store in
Dover where I am enjoying an ever-increasing trade. At about the same time
I set up housekeeping with a blond junior of High School days."
I had always exepcted to hear that, so it was no surprise to me as some
of the other events had been.
"I am the wraith of Helen Nutt. After graduating from High School,
I attended college during which time I wrote many short stories. A few
of these stories were published. After graduating I made it my regular
profession and have gained much renown as an author. I settled down in
Saxonville with an 'old friend and find the quiet and solitude of that little
village very helpful in my profession."
I always thought Helen would choose something rather quiet and
"I am the wraith of Hazel Pirie. I attended Business College soon
after graduation, and shortly afterward became private secretary to an
ambassador. I enjoyed the social life in Xlfashington immensely but finally
tired of it and came back to my home town and settled down with a dear
friend who was a sophomore when I graduated."
The next to appear was a short, wiry sort of a vision.
"I am the wraith of Fred Fannon. A few years after graduation I
became the founder of a world's series in Basket Ball and have been
captain of the Champion team for several years."
"I am the wraith of Margaret Lee," began the next. After graduation
I attended Tufts Dental School and now have an office in Natick where I
greatly enjoy extracting teeth for all my old classmates."
"I am the wraith of Katherine Skahill. I entered a Training School
after graduation and became a children's nurse. I am so fond of my work
that nothing as yet has induced me to leave it."
The next to appear was a red headed vision so I recognized shim at

just think of it. john Nelson. Improbable! But then it must be so.
.X tall, beautiful vision next appeared and bowing before me began
"I am the wraith of Elizabeth Eaton. I attended Business College
after graduating, but after a very few years in the business world, I dis-
covered that historic, old South Natick and one of. its male citizens had
more attraction for me!
I saw them all march in single file back to the ship and saw it slowly
sail away. Oh! that I might go with them, but it was useless to w1sh such
a thing. I could not move! I could not speak! I was spellbound by the
wonders I had just seen and heard. Wliztt wonderul things had happened
since those days in Natick High School! Vllhat hopes had been realized.
what dreams fulhlled. At length I could see the ship no more and I jumped
to my feet with the realization that it was only a dream ship. But oh!
what a dream it had been, what a rare treat I had enjoyed.
A banquet was given to the notorious members of the class of 1919
at the Hotel Somerset last NVednesday evening. These members who had
distinguished themselves in one way or another while at High School sat
at a separate table and were noticably conspicuous from the rest of the
class by a large. gleaming sign which read:
--Rocscrzs' GALLERY Fon THE XYEAR 1919-
Quiet, pensive, demure Ray Boardman sat at the head of the table,
apparently quite unaware of the admiring glances of the coy young damsels
circled about him.
At the other extremity of the table, Emily Shannon, Ray's silent part-
ner, far famed as the quietest young lady this side of the mighty Mississippi,
sat flashing shy glances at "Boardy" which, for the Baby of our class was

ence of the Class Dude,,Alfred Lynn Bailey. Attired in a Kuppenheimer
cut of the latest design, he swaggered down the aisle and majestically seated
himself at the right of Boardman. He explained his tardiness in his cus-
tomary casual manner. stating that he was delayed in order to see a Vlfelles-
ley College friend of his leave on the New York Special.

girl, brought forth an engraved edition of Barnards' "Etiquette and Man-
ners." As usual Helen thought deeply on the subject but made no
A clamor at the other end of the table shifted the scenes anew. Lyman
Spooner and Marion Ambler, the noisemakers of our little class, were
having a confab over the newest style of hair-dressing which had just
come to town. King Noise reigned supreme until this affair was settled.
The Apollo of our class and the best-natured boy, Bob Buckley, was
seated rather comfortably between our two beauties, Hazel Pirie and Ger-
trude Holden. Buckley is now posing for Arrow Collars. Hazel had
attended a Movie Ball and was promptly chosen by the Mary Pickford
Syndicate to be featured in an entirely new production where her beauty
will outrival that of the famous Anita Stewart. Gertrude's part in the
Senior dramatics brought her to the attention of a New York Manager who
was immediaely won over by her winsome personality and engaged her for
a New York production where her talent and beauty will soon give her a
solid footing on the ladder of fame.
Our attention was called to the lower end of the table where Miss
Hazel McGrath, the Class Flirt, was holding a bevy of our most promising
young men speechless by her unlimited stock of Screen Stories. Hazel's
piercing eyes and winning smile, combined with her magnetic powers of
attraction, caused many eyes to be focused on her.
Viola McGlone who achieved such success in High School athletics, had
entered into a contract to coach the illustrious girls' team of VVayland. She
was unable to remain through the entire banquet as the big game with
Sudbury was to be played the next day.
Each guest was served with an individual ice moulded in the shape of
a foot-ball in honor of our foot-ball hero, Captain "Chick" Burke.
Looking down the line we find our most popular girl, Elizabeth Eaton,
clever, entertaining, and always ready to help and say the right thing at
the right time. Unusually gifted and versatile, we called upon her for a
song which she rendered in her usual pleasing style. Thunderous applause
and insatiable demands far more testified to her success and popularity.
Charlie Burke's brawny muscle and angelic features which won for him
the distinction of being the most popular boy in the class also gained,
throughout the banquet, the services of the waiters who vied with each
other for the honor of serving "Chick" the choicest morsels of the feast.
At the end "Chick" was called upon to give the toast of the evening which
he performed as gracefully as usual, beaming complacently on the

We the Senior Class of the Natick High School, of the town of
Natick, in the State of Massachusetts, do hereby make, eonsecrate and

the stage and to be occupied by the principal at Monday morning
Second: To the teachers we leave the memory of the quietest class
to be graduated from this High School.
Third: To the juniors we leave our seats in Assembly Hall.
Fourth: To the Freshmen we leave this advice, "In ease of fire,

ANNUAL SENIOR PLAY
The annual Senior Play was held in High School Hall, Thursday
evening, May l, 1919.
The play, "The Adventures of Grandpa," a three act farce was very
well given by Misses McKinney, Eaton, Ambler, Holden, and johnson
and Messrs. Spooner, Bailey, Boardman and Heslin of the Senior Class
under the personal direction of Mrs. P. H. Buckley.
, Every one who saw the play voted it a complete success, and Miss
Johnson, taking the part of a Swedish maid just over, was a "scream,"
Instrumental music was furnished by Misses Nutt and Hanchett,
'cello and piano, solos and duets by Mrs. Elsie Clifton and Miss Rachel
Much of the success of the play is due to Miss Sweet who took
charge of the finances and to Miss Ratsey who planned the stage
THE JUNIOR PROM
On the evening of April twenty-fourth the junior Prom was given
in honor of the Senior Class. It was a most enjoyable occasion. Much
credit is due to the various committees who had the affair in charge.
PAGE TWENTY-SIX THE SASSAMON
Additional thanks must be given to the Decorating Committee who so
artistically decorated the hall with the helpful guidance of Miss Ratsey.
So, too, must we thank the Orchestra Committee, who provided us with
such an entertaining orchestra. But let us not forget to thank our
matrons, Miss Pease and Miss Currie, for helping us to make the Prom
a success. Refreshments were served in the gymnasium. After a
delightful evening of dancing, the Prom broke up at a late hour.
THE NICVV HSASSAMONU BOARD
After careful consideration of a long list of candidates the present
"Sassamon" Board, with the assistance of Miss Sweet and Mr. Lee,
elected the following persons to have charge of the paper next year:
Editor-in-Chief, L. Walter Brown, Associate Editors, Hester R. Matt-
lield, Mary Mahoney, Fred Cartier, 1920 Class Editors, Theodore
O'Brien, Minnetta Forsterg 1921 Class Editors. Mildred Holden, Harvey

change Editor, Kathleen Youngg Business Manager, Alfred Lamarineg
Assistant Business Managers, lirnest Pond, Helen Leavitt, Subscription
Editor, Vtlallace Pulsifer 3 Assistant Subscription liditor, Marion Watsoii.
The election of class editors for 1922 and 1923 was deferred until
Miss Humphrey who succeeded Miss Simington as teacher of Eng-
lish in the College Division, was forced by illness to leave school. Her
successor is Mr. Lee to whom we wish success in his new undertaking.
On Thursday, the eighth of May, a reception was given by the
townspeople to the homecoming sailors, soldiers, marines and airmen
of Natick. School closed at one o'clock on that day and the members
of the school turned out in a body to cheer the men.
The program commenced with a band concert and field sports. The
great interest of the day centered in the parade. Maj. Gen. Edwards and
Colonel Logan joined the men at the Armory and returned to the
reviewing stand on the common where the two speakers were intro-
duced by Mr. George C. Fairbanks. Both spoke in a most interesting
manner. The afternoon program concluded with drills and dances by
the gym. girls under the able leadership of Miss Brennan. General
lidwards' tribute to them as the "Y. D. girls" was a most sincere
The Chandler Convention, held at the Fenway Theatre on the
tenth of May. was attended by Miss johnson and a delegation of pupils
from both Senior and junior shorthand classes. The Convention had a
special interest for the Seniors for they met their correspondents from
THE SASSAMON PAGE TWENTY-SEVEN
Milton for the first time on that day. Some of the people visited the
Chandler Normal School of Shorthand after the Convention. Mary
Smith of the Senior Class answered the Roll Call for Natick. Another
item of interest in connection with the Convention is that the delegation
met Miss Marjorie Cooley, who taught typewriting and stenography
here earlier in the year.
Members of the Senior Class in Shorthand are corresponding with
the Senior Class of Milton High.
