Farewell, Class of 1922. Your fine
school spirit, scholarship, and many ath-
lethes have left an influence long to be re-
membered in good old N. H. S.
Many of you are now going directly into
the world of business, while others will go
on to schools of higher education. What-
ever you may undertake, we sincerely hope
you will win by honest pursuit the fruits
if success, thereby reflecting honor upon
yourselves, your school, and your town.
The Senior members of the Sassamon's
editorial staff wish to thank all those who
have contributed in any way to the success
of the paper. As we leave the school, our
interest in its paper will not wane. We
have enjoyed every joke, story, and ex-
The scholars must not think that the
climax has been reached as to what the
school paper can accomplish in the way of
literary merit and influence, or in keeping
every pupil cognizant of school events.
New avenues or possibilities could be
suggested and with the varied personali-
ties that one finds in a school of four hun-
dred, interesting opinions on current af-
fairs could be stated.
Each one must consider it his or her pa-
per and feel it a privilege to contribute
some article or witty remark which will
provoke smiles and make all feel that there
is a bright side to school life.
As each Sassamon goes to press, the
wearied editors might be heard to exclaim:
"Ah! a kingdom for a phonograph
To place in our spacious hall,
And on its waxen cylinder
Retain the language of us all!"

One fine September morning, in 1918,
we started our career in High School. Of
course, we felt big and very important un-
til we met the upper classmen, then sud-
denly we changed and looked vainly for
some corner to hide in. It didn't take us
long to discover that the chief pleasure of
the Sophomores was "ducking," Evidently
they forgot that they had been Freshmen
the year previous. But, somehow, we man-
aged to survive.
For the first few weeks we studied our
time schedules constantly, fearful lest we
should go to the wrong classes, but gradu-
ally the strangeness of everything wore off
and we began to go around with a little
confidence. Of course we were considered
too young to have class parties and officers,
but we had one consolation-the sub-fresh-
men were younger and had even fewer
privileges than we.
By the last half of the year we had lost
most of our "g'reenness" and considered
ourselves quite grown up. This year was
famous not only because we, the class of
'22 entered N. H. S., but also for the ar-
rival of Mr. Betts and Mr. Wliite, who are
still with us.
The second year the successful sub-fresh-
men joined us. This gave us the largest
class and also the brightest class ever. In
this year Miss Simmington, one of our Eng-
lish teachers, left. The Sophomore Eng-
lish class gave her a gold piece. Miss Cur-
rie, our Latin teacher, also left.
The very fact that we were no longer
"Freshies" made us determine to cast aside
our retiring manners and "get into things."
We "got into" athletics first by contribut-
ing a large number of real and "would be"
athletes to the various teams. Not con-
tent with our triumphs along this line we
decided to do something all by ourselves,
so we had a successful sleigh ride.
Since we had now obtained the advanced
standing of Sophomores, the Juniors conde-
scendingly allowed us to attend their Prom,
where, with envious eyes, we watched the
upper classmen dance.
While we were Sophomores, Mr. Gard-
ner was added to the faculty, so to him
fell the arduous task of driving a little
Geometry' into our heads.
The third year we became Juniors and
were permitted to occupy rooms twelve and
eighteen, which, since these rooms are on
the first floor, gave us time to sleep three
extra minutes in the morning. How about
As Juniors we were under the tender up
care of Miss Pease and Miss Powers as
home room teachers. Practically the first
thing we did was to elect class officers.
Bob Wright was unanimously chosen Presi-
dent, Dot Derrick, Vice-President, Mary
Long, Secretary, and last, but not least,
Louis McDonald was elected to the ex-
tremelyf?J easy position of Treasurer.
These officers served us very well and
everything went smoothly under their su-
pervision, at least for us, although it was
rumored that "Mac" had quite a job trying
to collect class dues.
We had a Hallowe'en party, which was
so successful that we followed it with a
Christmas party in the Gym. Nothing was
lacking, even 'Santa Claus and a Christmas
tree being present.
We had proved that we could star social-
ly and athletically, so in February we tried
our skill in another line-that of dramat-
ics. To celebrate Lincoln's Birthday we
presented the one act play, "The Day That
Lincoln Died." The hearty applause of the
audience proved to us that we hadn't whol-
ly failed, although critics might have found
many faults, had they been so disposed.
In the Spring, we had our Prom. Every-
body worked hard and made it the best
ever. The hall was trimmed the prettiest
it ever had been, the work of Miss Ratsey
and the drawing class showing up to big
advantage in the new idea of having sil-
houettes as part of the decorations. The
financial end of the Prom was just as suc-
cessful as the social, with "Mac" taking
Miss Ellison joined us this year as one
of our English teachers and became so well
liked by everyone 'that we elected her as
the most popular teacher.
Last September we became dignified
Seniors, which is all the name implies, and
since then we have been setting the best
of examples to the Freshmen.
We reelected, unanimously, the officers
of last year. It's lucky they are all good
In October we had our Hallowe'en party
at Royal Arcanum Hall, where dancing,
cider drinking, and games played a great
part. If judged by the amount of shout-
ing and the way the cider and doughnuts
disappeared, we'll tell the world it was
At Christmas we had another party, at
which gifts were exchanged and dancing
Made brave by the dramatic success of
our Junior year, the latter part of Janu-
ary we presented a play in three acts, "The
Arrival of Kitty." The success of this play
was due largely to the splendid coaching
of Miss Ellison and the able business man-
agement of Miss Sweet. n
Mid-year exams came immediately after
the play. Since then all our efforts have
been bent towards our books and
time has been given by the class,
whole, to outside activities.
This gives some general idea of the do-
ings of the class of '22, during the last
four years. I have left for Beryl Board-
man, our most popular girl, the task of tell-
ing you of our individual "stars" and the
various fields in which they have won
No class history is complete without its
celebrities, and as we have such a large
and brilliant class, we have quite a list.
In that time is short and space limited, I
shall give just a bit about each and let
your imagination do the rest.
It wasn't until our Sophomore year that
we began to spread out and a few of us
got into the limelight of athletics. Piney,
our class athlete, played football his second
and third years, then captained the team
his Senior year. Besides being the best
captain yet, he was one of the strongest
players. He also played baseball his junior
and senior years, and basketball as well.
Arthur Buckley, better known as "Buck,"
was the only one of our class to make the
football team his first year. He played
two seasons, then, owing to injuries, did
not appear again until his Senior year,
when he played quarterback, proving one
of the strongest men on the team. He is
also our class chatterbox.
Linus Gavin, commonly known as "Fat,"
played football his second, third and fourth
year, and because of his coy and coquet-
tish ways has been dubbed our class clown.
Tommy Connolly, our clever shortstop,
has played baseball his last two years and
basketball his Senior year. Besides being
athletic, he has gained a far-famed repu-
tation for his literary achievements as Edi-
tor-in-Chief of the Room XI News, pub-
lished in competition to the Daily Vifhispei-,
of Room XII., edited by the witty Dave
Ryan. Competition is still keen and we
hope they will continue.
Johnny Powers has played clever basket-
ball his last two years and also made a
good captain. Besides this he has played
baseball his last year, and although he is
fond of sleeping, he gets there.
Jack Duguid, or "Dubber," has played
football the last three years and a little
basketball. We expect any day to find him
coaching a Wellesley College team.
Chet Nichols has played football the last
two years and basketball one year. He
proved a successful comedian in the Senior
play and caused much mirth as Sambo, the
negro porter. He also represented Natick
in the Grange speaking contest, this Spring.
Ellwood Waters, better known as "Pea-
nut," in spite of being our smallest boy,
has played basketball and captained the
second team his last year, and has capably
played second base on the baseball team
for the last two years.
"Clayt" Morrill played basketball his
Junior year and the loss of his clever shoot-
ing was keenly felt this last season.
George Dean, or "Gige," although class
dude, is the original baseball player and
has covered first base his Sophomore and
"Buch" Mahaney, our wittiest boy, has
managed the baseball team and played
football this year along with our best look-
ing boy, "Bob" Wright, and our play hero,
Ed. McKinney. Jimmie Hogan and Roy
Hayward were managers respectively of
the football and baseball teams.
Mary Lord, known as "Lordie," our ath-
lete, has played on the basketball team for
the last three years and has successfully
managed the undefeated team of 1922.
Mary Adams, our faithful side-center on
the two years' championship teams, has
been most generous in playing the piano
for us on all occasions. She is also in the
Pro Merito list for excellent scholarship.
Irma Godendorf, our tallest girl and
class flirt, has played basketball with the
1922 team, and also has given us some
pleasing violin solos. '
All the celebrities aren't on the athletic
fields, there are some who have chosen the
typewriter for their exercise and have won
either medals or certificates or both for an
average of over forty words a minute for
ten and fifteen minutes. Coming in order,
Fannie Featherman, although the smallest
girl, has earned the highest honor in type-
writing and also that of being valedictori-
an. Next comes Margaret Coan, who is
a firm believer in having a lunch between
B and C periods. Mary Morrill, a rather
quiet girl, comes next, followed by Evelyn
Nims and Hilda Robinson, Dorothy Derrick,
John Powers, Beryl Boardman, and John
Jennings, our woman hater. Next, Doris
King, Alice Ward, our class baby, Harry
Blumenthal, and Mary Long, our salutator-
Our Senior play, "The Arrival of Kitty,"
coached by Miss Ellison, was a roaring suc-
cess and we cleared approximately 8300.
The role of Bobbie Baxter, the hero,
played by "Ed" McKinney, was perfect,
but when he masqueraded as Kitty, just
ask Gayton what kind of a girl he makes.
What was in that bottle, anyway?
Louis McDonald, our most popular boy,
in playing the part of Willie Winkler, had
all the trials and troubles of a hardwork-
ing brother to Aunt Jane, a wealthy mid-
dle-aged vamp, played to perfection by
"Roe" Leavitt made a wonderful look-
ing heroine, whose romance finally ended
in a satisfactory way.
"Bob" Wright, our best looking boy, took
the part of Ting, a college boy masquerad-
ing as a bell hop. He has been our class
president for two years.
Kitty Benders, the actress, was played
by "Dot" Derrick and without a doubt she
did the part to perfection.
The part of Susette, the French maid,
was played by Mary Morrill. Aunt Jane
and her pet dog would have been lost with-
While some have been excelling in sports,
others have stuck faithfully to their stud-
ies and have won higher honors than
any of us and by averaging 85W and over
have become members of the Pro Meritn
Fannie Featherman has highest honor,
being Valedictoriang Mary Long comes sec-
ond, our Salutatoriang Hilda Foster, Dor-
othy Derrick, Louis McDonald, George
Dean, Marion Bransfleld, our quietest girl,
Marion Coleman, Wilfred Carter, Ernest
McDonald and Mary Adams.
We have all kinds of celebrities and as
bobbed hair is getting more popular every
day, we think it ought to be included.
We'll admit it is not always becoming, but
we all agree it is comfortable, and we like
Margaret Coan and Laura Hopf were the
first girls to have their hair bobbed. It has
grown out now, but that's not their fault.
Dorothy Derrick was next and then when
we came back for our last year Mary Lord,
Alice Baker, Alice Webster, Marion Cole-
man, and Beryl Sweetland had joined the
group. The last to do it was Marjorie
The rest of our celebrities who havcn't
been mentioned are Ruth Wright, Bob's
twin sister, our best looking girl, and al-
though she has been quiet. she has earned
high honors in her art and sewing.
Willie Johnson is rightly termed our best
Ilatllred girl, along with Jack Duguid, our
best natured boy.
Thaddeus Sharkey, coming from the
metropolis of Wayland, joined the class
our Junior year and has succeeded in being
our class flirt.
Helen Houghton, the winner of the Sas-
samon Story Contest, has been chosen our
Adolph Behrend, better known as "Ein-
stein," although our smallest boy, is con-
sidered the biggest pest.
The honor of being class chatterbox has
fallen to Ida Hurd, who has earned it tell-
ing how hard she studied the night before,
therefore getting the name of class grind.
Blanche Copithorn was voted our best
Our man' hater is Minnie Yeager, but
some day we hope some deserving man
will change her mind.
The class bluff was given to Roy Hay-
ward. Anyway it isn't everyone that can
be as clever as that.
Even with this lengthy manuscript it has
been impossible to consider all the quali-
ties of all our famous members. Later in
the afternoon our two worthy prophets will
give you a glimpse of their future careers.
It was 1934. At that time I was busy
with my cattle in the Argentine, where a
few years before I had taken over a small
ranch. By unceasing labor I had increased
my acreage and my herd tremendously, un-
til now I could boast a million of the Hnest
cattle that ever grazed in these regions.
My foremen were capable men, so that took
part of the managing off my hands.
One hot day, in January, as I sat on
my veranda, looking out over the wide
lands, which were all mine, I began think-
ing of my High School days, and wonder-
ing in what fields my classmates had met
success. The more I thought of it, the
more anxious I grew to find out if their
success equalled or surpassed mine. But
how was I, 'way down in Argentina, to find
out? Long I pondered, but finally I hit
upon an idea. I knew that it would be dif-
ficult for anyone to hunt up the doings of
my friends, for they were probably widely
scattered, but the fact that the Class of
1922 was the best class that ever graduated
would make a big difference. Accordingly,
I sent a check for 352,762.49 to the Mayor
of Natick, asking him if it would be pos-
sible to send me information about each
member of my class.
In four weeks I received a letter from
Charlie Mahaney, headed "Office of the
Mayor." I was surprised to find Butch in
politics. He said he had held the chair for
three consecutive terms. No opposition, I
guessed. He also stated that since he was
a member of that famous class, he had done
everything he could for me, but had been
able to locate only the boys of 1922. This
pained me, but the boys were better than
nothing, so I had to be satisfied. Charlie
said he would send me a letter as soon as
possible containing what he found out
about our classmates.
The days dragged by, each one slower
than the one preceding. In three months
I received a thick letter stamped "Natick,
Mass., U. S. A." As I opened it hastily,
a piece of paper dropped to the floor. 1
picked it up and saw that it was a check
for 81.13. The first paragraph of the letter
explained it. "This is all that remains 01
the money you sent," wrote Charlie, for it
was he who had written the letter. "The
rest of this is taken up with the informa-
tion you asked for. I'm sorry I couldn't
get it to you more quickly." And then I
started to read.
It was rather natural to see Bob Wright's
name heading the list. After graduation
from Dennison Academy, he had received
an offer from the Loco Film Corporation.
Bob was now working for them at a 81,000-
a-week salary. I learned that he co-stars
with Edna Fair. Their latest photoplay,
"Oh! What Blushes!" was the sensation of
Next on the list was .lawn Jennings.
Jawn had become world famous as the first
American to ascend Mt. Everest. I always
knew that Jawn had high ideals, but I car-
culated that when he stood on that peak he
had higher ideals than anyone else in the
Following Jawn was Adolph Behrend.
Little Weeshee had taken up Science as a
life study. He had retired to an isolated
spot in the Middle West and set himself to
propounding new laws. One day he got in
the way of an electric current. Poor
Adolph, he had never been so shocked be-
fore. The floral gifts were wonderful.
Turning over quickly, I nearly ripped the
page off, but that didn't hurt the contents
any. Clayt Morrill was the first on this
page. He had joined the Aviation Corps,
and had piloted the first airplane over the
Pacific. On a later trip he got wrecked on
a South Sea Island, where it was reported
he had been made King, after winning the
confidence of the natives. "At any rate,"
Charlie said, "he never came back."
Arthur Buckley and Linus Gavin had
paired up and gone on the stage for a liv-
ing. They went under the name of "The
Boys From the Golden West." Very de-
ceiving, I thought. But that was natural,
for I could remember how they used to try
to deceive the teachers in High School days.
Was this another miracle? I rubbed my
eyes to make sure that I was reading cor-
rectly. Ed McKinney had become a .teach-
er! What a jolt this was to me. Heiilvas
teaching German in the High School. It
was said that the German Course was the
most popular course in the curriculum. Ed
was always a German shark, anyhow.
Parker O'Brian had become an artist.
His latest masterpiece had startled the art
world. ,"This is confidential," wrote Butch.
"I went to see Parker, and he told me
about that picture. He had been disgusted
with it, and had slung it across the room.
As it happened, it landed on a lot of paints
in the corner. Later he repented his hasty
act, rescued it, fixed it in a few places,
called it 'When a Man Sees Red,' and be-
came famous from that picture."
I was not surprised to find that Tom
Connolly had entered the baseball world.
"Peanut" Waters and he were the greatest
pair in the big leagues. For seven years
they worked together, and then Tom's wind
gave out. Thereafter he joined in partner-
ship with Dave Ryan, and now they are
running a prosperous shoe store on Main
At this point one of my foremen rode
up and asked for information. I dismissed
him as soon as possible and resumed my
George Dean had taken up Literature,
and was a popular author. His latest work,
"The Mystery of the Floating Crowbar,"
had created much excitement among the
critics and the general public.
After completing his college career, Wal-
ter Pine had been seized with the "Wan-
derlust." On a journey to South America,
Walt had assisted in one of the innumer-
able revolutions which are an ever-present
feature of that continent. For his ser-
vices Walter was made a general in the
army of the Republic of Parcheesi.
Charlie said the country had been star-
tled when Ernest McDonald, who hitherto
had been living quietly at home, was ap-
pointed U. S. Consul at Minnehaha, South
Africa. Mack said that the appointment
was a surprise to him, since he hadn't been
expecting it so soon.
Chet Nichols had become famous in the
sport world. After terrific and intensive
training, Chet had succeeded in clipping
two seconds form Charlie Paddock's time
for a new world record.
I was wondering if any of the fellows
had gone into business when I came across
Harry,Blumenthal. He was now one of
the largest manufacturers in the country.
From his main factory, at Otah, Utah, Har-
ry was turning out porcelain dish towels.
They had proved so popular that Harry's
wealth had increased by leaps and bounds.
Bunk Sheehan had become a doctor. On
account of his skillfulness, he was consid-
ered the greatest surgeon in the country.
"The thing upon which he operates best,
wrote Butch, 'fis his patient's pocketbookf'
Tad Sharkey had attempted surveying
for a living, but soon realized that he was
cut out for a literary life. His hobby was
history, his chief work being "History and
Records of Wayland," in thirteen volumes.
This work placed Tad among the chief his-
torians of the age.
The name heading the next page was
Roy Hayward. He had followed out the
desire of his life, and was the full-fledged
janitor of the Physics and Chem. Labs. in
the High School.
Wilfred Carter had started on a brilliant
engineering career, but a spell of sickness
left him unfit to continue the work. He
had taken up his old occupation, and, to
use Charlie's own words, "was still cutting
butter with a keen eye."
Johnnie Powers, like Harry Blumenthal,
had gone into business. But Johnnie's line
was a little different from Harry's, for he
was in the fish business. He had agencies
all over the country, and his weekly sales
were taxing the fisheries to the uttermost.
After a long training season, Mickey
Leary had obtained the position of history
teacher in N. H. S. "Here are some of the
questions taken from exams he hands out,"
wrote Charlie. "In what season of the
yead did Washington spend his winter at
Valley Forge?" "Who were the partici-
pants in the Spanish-American War?"
"Which general surrendered after Grant
had surrounded Lee at Appomatox Court
The latest heard about Jack Duguid was
that he was giving boxing lessons by cor-
I found it not unnatural that Jimmie
Hogan owned a studio in Back Bay, where
he conducted a dancing school for young
ladies. The success of ths venture was
one of the modern wonders of Boston.
Larry Gayton had been the Natick city
treasurer until one day he accidentally
tripped over his own foot. "You know,"
Butch stated, "it's a long fall from Larry
to the ground." Thereafter he turned in-
ventor, trying to perfect springs to fit on
the soles of his shoes.
I nearly fainted when I read that Stan
Currier had become a poet. Charlie re-
marked that Stan's latest poem, "Thoughts
on a Circle," had made people wonder
whether or not Stan was on the square.
"The reason why Ling Dow comes last,"
wrote the Mayor, "is that we couldn't find
out what he was doing. After a month of
careful watching, we discovered that Ling
was an expert bootlegger. He is the surest
and safest of them all in this section.
There's talk of his being put up for the
Bootlegger's candidate for President."
"That completes all that I can tell you
about our classmates, Mack. I hope you
enjoyed reading this letter as much as I
enjoyed hunting up the news about each
one. Why don't you write once in a while?
I'll be expecting an answer soon. So long,
Here the letter ended. For a long time
I sat thinking of the varied careers of
which l had just read. Then I conceived
the idea of writing to each fellow. I would
have to wait, however, until I got a new
sccertary. My old one will take no more
dictation from me-I married her a month

It was June, my thoughts had flown back
to my school days and school mates and I
longed to see some of these old friends
again. I think the Fates heard and were
kind for they literally dropped into my
hands an invitation to the reunion of the
girls of the class of '22. I at once deter-
mined to go for I had been able to keep
in touch with only a few of my friends:
Margaret Coan, who was a clerk in the
South Natick National Bankgwlerry Du-
guid, who was teaching Natick's younger
generation how to get exercise while play-
ing a violin, and Mary Morrill, who was
teaching the young idea how to shoot in
more ways than one. While teaching in
Boston, she had organized a children's
rifle club, hence the 'shooting of the young
ideas'. Oh, and I mustn't forget Marj.
Stone who was married and living in North
Natick, and Madeline Hopf, who had be-
come famous by riding the falls of the Old
South Natick Dam. She had risked her
life there five times and was justly pro-
claimed one of the greatest women ath-
The invitation stated that the reunion
was to be held in Boston, so I joumeyed
thither. When I arrived, saw the decora-
tions in our old class colors, blue and gold,
and caught glimpses of familiar faces, the
years seemd but days, and when I saw Mr.
Betts at the head table, I secretly won-
dered if he would end the party at ten
minutes of twelve as was his custom at
There were only about thirty present,
but even in that thirty there were many
notables. I met Helen Watson, the globe-
trotter, just home from Hawaiig Mary
Moran, manager of a matrimonial agency
at Reno, Nevada, and Fanny Featherrnan,
who had been Dean of Northwestern Uni-
versity but had given it up to Work in
comedies out in Hollywood. Louise Car-
roll, Elise Gauthier, Laura Hopf, and Min-
nie Yeager had set up a radio sending sta-
tion with the able assitance of Roy Hay-
ward and Weeshy Behrend. They called
themselves "The Neighborhood Entertain-
ment Club," but the neighbors called them
"The Neighborhood Disturbance Club."
Then there was Emily Bismarck who was
assistant-manager of the Raymond Stores
of Boston, with Mary Dufault, her secre-
tary, who was taking notes on everything
and everybody, as indeed was Evelyn
Nims, editor of the new Natick society
I saw, too, Alice Baker, whom I had met
once before in the Fenway, for she was
conducting a select riding school for youmz'
ladies in the Back Bay. Later, I met Ida
Hurd, Congressional representative from
the state of Kentucky, with her campaign
manager, Alice Ward. Marion Bransfield,
the head of Mission for Needy Neurotic
Neophytes, was there too. She was just
back from South Africa, so she had many
wonderful tales to tell of her experiences
with the natives-only she wouldn't tell
them! Still living up to her reputation as
the quietest girl, I thought.
It was a surprise to us all to ind that a
radio concert had been planned as part of
the evenings entertainment. It was still
more of a surprise to find that we were to
hear Irma Godendorf, the violinist, and
Mary Adams, a second Paderrewski, loved
by the public for her sweet personality.
Both were European favorites, but tour-
ing the states during the summer months.
Mary Long, the famous soprano, had tired
of grand opera and, at the time, was com-
posing popular jazz music.
But the real lion of the evening was
"Daredevil" Dot Derrick, the foremost avi-
atrice of the day. During my conversa-
tion with her, I happened to mention the
fact that I had for some time been plan-
ning a trip to New York, so she urged me
to go with her in her biplane, "The
Demon." I accepted immediately and we
arranged to start the following day. As
I was obliged to leave the gathering some-
what early, I met only a few others but it
made my heart sing to find that so many
still loved the old class enough to come
from all the corners of the earth to be
present at her reunion. So, after seeing
Daredevil Dot again and promising to
meet her at the appointed time, I departed.
The trip next day was exciting, for me
at least, for it was my first experience in
a plane, but we arrived safely a1 thi, land-
ing place on the roof of the Ritz. Seeing
that I had really enjoyed my flight in the
plane, Dot suggested that I should accom-
pany her on a short western trip to Iowa.
Thus we parted, promising to meet three
days later. I was to stay at the Ritz, so
I hastened down to my room.' You can
imagine my surprise when I saw Marion
Schneider, almost the first person I had
met in New York, and discovered that she
held a position as dietitian in the hotel.
She told me I might meet other friends
while in the city, since Margaret Everett
and Edna Fair were conducting a very
smart childrcn's shop off Fifth Avenue,
and that Blanche Copithorn, who had been
our best dressed girl, was proprietress of
an extremely fashioniable modiste's estab-
lishment with Hilda Robinson as one of
her most popular mannikens.
Leaving the hotel, I started out to see
the sights. It was on lower Broadway, I
think, that I saw the small sign-Mary
Leahy-Ladies' Beauty Parlor. Of course
I entered and met this beautiiier. While
I was there, Mary Forster came in, so we
held a conference then and there. She
told me that she was a French interpreter
at the Immigration Station, but was soon
to be married at the Little Church Around
the Corner, by her sister, Hilda Forster,
who was rector there. She had kept up
her friendship with Willie Johnson, who,
Mary said, had beeen all over the country
lecturing, using as her favorite theme-
"How I Reduced Easily and Quickly or
The Daily Dozen." After leaving them, I
had heard that Marion Linane and Mildred
Flumere were doing welfare work.
My second night in New York, I was
dining at the roof garden of the Ritz
when I looked up and saw Marion Coleman
at a neighboring table. As I hastened
over to see her, I found she was with Mu-
riel Sutherland. It semed that Marion, as-
sistant-editor of a large New York paper,
was interviewing Miss Sutherland, a fore-
most scientist and inventor, who had re-
cently perfected the non-luminous electric
light. During the evening which we spent
together, I learned that Alice Webster had
married one of her many admirers, a Na-
tick man, and had a charming home in one
of New York's suburbs. According to all
reports she was running her husband,
home, and car in the latest aproved fash-
The next day Dot of the "Demon" came
and we started for Des Moines, where we
were to visit my old chum, Helen Hough-
ton. Helen had married a college profes-
sor and had gathered about her a group of
enthusiastic young psychologists who were
investigating the effect of the aura on the
ego. She had also written a book on "The
Sublimity of Silence," which had been ac-
claimed a great success. She knew of two

other classmates in Iowa-Catherine Rear-
don, owner of a large ranch at Oskaloosa.
and Doris King, who was running a pretty
little tea-room at Fort Madison.
While we were out riding one afternoon,
we came upon a movie party from Holly-
wood out on location. To our surprise, we
saw Beryl Sweetland among tnem. She
was playing ingenue parts and was en-
gaged to her leading man. She told us
that Beryl Boardman, who had been an ar-
tist's model in Paris, has also succumbed
to the lure of the silver screen and was
then in India getting material for scenes,
costumes, and dances for her next picture.
She had retained the popularity she had
with us, for she was a great favorite with
the movie fans.
Another afternoon we took a trip down
to one of the Indian reservations where we
found Mary Lord teaching the Indians how
to make baskets. She received her own
training in this line from Miss Brennan at
Natick High. Mary was married, but had
tired of the gay society life and was spend-
ing the summer on the reservation. Rowe
Leavitt, she said, was living in Canada,
and was giving instruction in writing love
letters by means of a correspondence
school. Vlfhile traveling abroad, Mary had
met Ruth Wright who had been studying
futuristic painting in France and Italy.
Several of her art panels had been ac-
cepted by the Royal Society of England.
Peg LaVarge, who had been married. to a
well-known baseball player not long ue-
fore, was living in Brooklyn, New York.
We urged Mary to return to Des Moines
with us and that night we all sat about the
open fire talking over old times. We drank
a heartfelt toast to Auld Lang Syne and
the class of '22 fthe best class 'Natick High
ever hadlj And I thought-
Doth not a meeting like this make amends
For all the long years I've been wand'ring
Whatever has been written shall remain,
Nor be erased, nor written o'er again .
The unwritten only yet remains to thee,
Take heed and ponder well what that shall
In the earliest days of mankind. when
the earth was in a primal state of being,
it would seem that the man that labored
under an insurmountable handicap, for in
his daily fight for existence he was pitted
against animals superbly equipped for a
life in which the only law was the survival
of the fittest. Man's single asset was his
brain, but this was sufficient to place him
far above any of the lower animals.
Through the power of thought he was able
to gain a degree of safety which his phy-
sical being never could have possessed oth-
By no means the least method he used
for protection was his power of expression
and communication. Doubtlessly this was
one of the principal factors in his gaining
such as astoinshing pre-eminence over the
As his need became greater, he devised
other means of comunication than by voc-
iferously calling through space to his com-
panions. Chief among the earliest means
of conveying information a greater dis-
tance than the vocal range was the helio-
graph, a sun reflecting device whose flash-
es could be seen miles away. Many re-
verberant implements were also used, and,
after man had gained sufficient control
over fire, alternating smoke columns were
popular. Gradually as humanity became
more civilized the most expedient way to
communicate was by means of written
messages, the speed of which depended
upon the swiftness of the messenger. The
world of culture was at this stage when
the telegraph was invented. This inven-
tion was such an enormous step toward
perfection in news-conveying instruments
that it has been retained to the present
Next came the telephone, bringing a
closer, more personal connection between
the communicants. Its usefulness is be-
ing demonstrated daily in the homes of
millions of people.
The wireless, invented about the same
time, did not develop as quickly, but, as
the years passed and a higher grade of
proficiency was reached, national legisla-
tion became necessary to control the jum-
ble of messages fiying at cross purposes
from the hands of an infinite number oi
wireless users. The enthusiasm of these
operators was boundless in the use of this
instrument which sends and receives mes-
sages not over a wire like the telephone
and telegraph, but from the Very atmos-
At about the same time that radio tel-
egraphy was achieving prominence, the
radio telephone was first used. The chief
difference between the iwvo instruments is
that by radio telephony we are able to
send and receive the human voice through
space, while a sound made by a spark
transmitter forming dots and dashes in ac-
cordance With an international code em-
bodies the connective powers of the tele-
graph. The progress of the radio tele-
phone was somewhat checked by the abil-
ity of scientists to create a voice ampli-
fier. It was not until 1912 that any de-
cided approach was made toward the per-
fection of the radio telephone, or simply
radio, as it is called.
Realizing the possibilities of an elec-
trical phenomenon which Edison had dis-
covered, telephone engineers began to ex-
periment with his crude instrument and
soon developed it into highly perfected
bulbs or vacuum tubes. These tubes are
used either as a modulator or builder of
weak currents or as an amplifier. Although
first used on long distance telephone ser
vice, they were quickly adapted to me
radio telephone and by constant experi-
mental and development work messages
were transmitted in 1915 through a space
of 7,000 miles.
The basic principle of the radio is the
signaling through the ether by means of
electro-magnetic waves. The length of
these waves varies greatly, or can be made
to vary greatly, and it is this tendency
which makes it possible for radio experts
when receiving, to focus or "tune" their
instruments of waves of a certain length
excluding all others.
Without a doubt the interest in wireless
a few years ago was great, but the pres
ent radio craze has affected so many peo-
ple that manufacturers of electrical sup-
plies have refused to accept any more
business until they catch up.
The radio has been found so useful as
a means of reaching the people that lec-
tures, concerts, statistics, press reports and
many other forms of education and enter-
tainment are daily fiashed through space
for the benefit of radio owners.
There are endless possibilities for the
radio telephone. Improvements have been
so rapid recently that even experts find
it difficult to keep well informed. With
progress making such rapid strides what
can we not expect in the future?
Perhaps the greatest prophecy yet con-
ceived is that the world's power may some
day be distributed by means of the radio.
Already so many heretofore impossible
feats have been accomplished that even
this seems possible. However, in spite of
its many assets it is not expected that
radio telephony will supercede the tele-
phone and telegraph for the reason that
far more privacy is possible in the latter
named than through radio.
It is indeed a far cry from the man
whose long distance messages could be
measured in feet to the present day when
the voice can be cast throughout the
length and breadth of the world. How our
ancestors would marvel at the phenom-
enal radio! Still in just such a fashion we
may be taken aback by the message car-
riers of the future. From past demonstra-
tions of man's initiative what may we not
expect from the next era?

For Class of 1922,
When we think back upon our last four
Of knowledge gained, of friendships tried
Of all that made up our small world of
We think also of the great things that
In this wide land of which we are a partg
Events which stirred us to the very depths,
Events which History will write upon
Her records of deeds nobly done,
The Armistice, glad day of days so long
Ago to end the fearful loss of life,
Men that three hundredth anniversary
Of the stern Pilgrim fathers' landing on
This rough and rocky, wild New England
And soon we found that three years had
Hastening when we wished them to go
Next Seniors-oh, the meaning of that
And only a few short, short months to live
Before we went forever from our High.
Meanwhile the burial of that brave man
Who represented our most valiant dead,
One minute at high noon was the request
For prayer and silence deep-and we
A homage to our men "gone west."
And corresponding to the election
Of that fine man who leads our nation
Here in our own community of school
In that last year at dear old Natick High,
There came a man who was to lead us, too,
So wise, so dignified,, a joy to meet,
His work increased by interest deep.
Blithe Spring went by, six weeks were
And then six days, and now the End.
But may ideals of childhood linger near,
Let's not leave them behind nor discard
In the illusions that we'll meet in Life.
Let us believe in the wise Principles
That we have had instilled us these years
Which soon will be so far behind.
May we prove true to the big things we
And thus we leave-our eyes turned tow-
ard a goal-
Our hope is that we'll reach it-everyone!

THE GYMNASIUM EXHIBITION
On Friday evening, April 28. the gym-
nasium classes gave their annual exhibi-
tion under the supervision of Miss Bren-
The exhibition opened with marching
tactics by the advanced classesg combina-
tion exercises were given by all the class-
es. A playlet, "The Jolly Sign-Post," was
read by Miss Wilmoth Johnson, assisted
hy Misses Rosenthal, Boardman, Baker,
Lord, Ryan, Daniels, Godendorf, E. Lord
and Houlihan. A basketball game be-
tween the Tgiers and Bob Cats took place,
the Bob Cats won 10 to 6. The program
closed with a finale by the entire class.
The exhibition was one of the best ever
given in the school and reflects great cred-
it to Miss Brennan's training and effi-
The Pro Merito awards are as follows:
Mary Adams. .
The plans for graduation are to be
somewhat different this year. By vote of
the school committee, essays by members
of the senior class are to be delivered. By
right of having the highest honours in
scholarship for four years, Fannie Feath-
erman and Mary Long will deliver theirs.
The other essays were submitted to judges
selected by the committees. Their deci-
sion gave the awards to Dorothy Derrick
and Laurence Gayton with honorable men-
tion to Linus Gavin and Mary Adams.
The class of 1923 gave their Junior
Promenade April 21st, 1922, in High
School Hall. A reception was held from
8 to 9 and dancing followed from 9 to 12.
Miss Pease and Miss Sawyer, the Junior
teachers, with Hollis Wilde, class presi-
dent, Irene Doon, vice president, Helen
Winch, secretary, and Robert Esty, treas-
urer, assisted in the receiving line. The
hall was very prettily decorated with
green, blush pink, and American beauty
which formed a net work overhead. About
150 couples attended and Cornwall's Sing-
ing Orchestra of Waltham furnished the
music. The class of 1923 wish to thank
the students of Natick High School for
their hearty cooperation in making the af-
fair a success.
The baseball team started in a good way
when it defeated the Town Team 4-2.
Hall worked in the box and was effective,
one hit being allowed. Harper, who
worked for the Town Team, allowed but 3
The first Midland League game with
Milford ended in a 12 inning tie. Natick
had plenty of chances to score for a final
score, but lacked the punch when needed.
Dean, Pine, and Powers led in batting
for Natick, 0'Connell for Milford. Twelve
hits were made off each pitcher.
Boston College High defeated N. H. S.
9-1. The team from B. C. High had a
good batting eye, especially McCarthy, the
center fielder. Esty batted well, getting
3 hits on four trips to the plate.
Marlboro, the second League game, re-
sulted in a walkaway for Natick, 14-1.
McKinney had Marlboro under his control
all the way. Every Natick batter hit the
ball all over the field for a total of 14
hits. Lord, the catcher of Marlboro,
batted heavy, getting 3 hits.
Hudson was the next victim by a close
score of 7-5. Hudson scored heavily the
second inning, but Natick came back in
the next with one better. The game was
close all the way, and in the nintn it
looked as if Hudson would.score, but a
peg from Dean to Thompson, to Dumas
caught Lovett, the shortstop asleep off
third for the last out. The feature was
a home run by LaFrance. Pine seems to
be getting into a regular hitting stride by
the way he clouted the ball. As this was
the third league game, it gives N. H. S.
a good hold on top place in the league,
with Milford, Hudson, Needham, and Marl-
boro folowing in order.
Natick ll, Needham 3
Newcomb was given wretched support
Saturday in the game with Natick High,
and this, combined with errors and many
of them, put Natick's score up to 11, while
Needham was scoring 3. Three hits were
made off Esty in 6 innings, while nine hits
off Newcomb counted for 8 runs. Hall
just missed a homer over the fence by
inches which would have made his record
3 homers. Newcomb led in hitting for
Dedham 4, Natick 3
A wild pitch in the last half of the
ninth gave Dedham a 4 to 3 win over Na-
tick. Dedham was held scoreless until the
7th. Flynn and Keaney got two hits
apiece for Dedham. The N. H. S. infield
played excellent ball all through the game.
Needham 2, Natick 3
As usual, Needham always plays its best
games against Natick. Natick won the
game on Hall's home run in the seventh.
Newcomb pitched a good game for Need-
ham, allowing 5 hits, while Esty allowed
but 5 also. The game was exciting
throughout and was not decided until the
last out in the ninth when Needham had a
man on second. N
Natick walked around the bases With
Dover and won,
bases were able
hits, while Esty,
lowed only five.
