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. ALMA CARTIER. 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- change. 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!"

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 SASSAMON PAGE NINE 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 it, Jack? 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 charge. 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 natured. 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 some success. At Christmas we had another party, at which gifts were exchanged and dancing enjoyed. 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 glory. little as a EDWARD MCKINNEY. CLASS CELEBRITIES 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 PAGE TEN THE SASSAMON 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 Senior year. "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- ian. 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 THE SASSAMON PAGE ELEVEN all the trials and troubles of a hardwork- ing brother to Aunt Jane, a wealthy mid- dle-aged vamp, played to perfection by "Peg" LaVarge. "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- out her. 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 Society. 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 it. 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 Stone. 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 wittiest girl. 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 dressed girl. 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. BERYL BOARDMAN. CLASS PROPHECY--1922-BOYS 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 PAGE TWELVE THE SASSAMON 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 the year. 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 world. 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. THE SASSAMON PAGE THIRTEEN "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 Street. At this point one of my foremen rode up and asked for information. I dismissed him as soon as possible and resumed my reading. 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 H 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 House?" The latest heard about Jack Duguid was that he was giving boxing lessons by cor- respondence. 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 PAGE FOURTEEN THE SASSAMON 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, Mack." 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 ago. LOUIS McDONALD. GIRLS' PROPHECY 'Tis expectation makes a blessing dearg Heaven were not Heaven, if we knew what it were. 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- letes. 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 "Proms." 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 paper. 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 THE SASSAMON PAGE FIFTEEN 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- ion. 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 MORSE INSTETUTE Llgnaqy 14 EAST CENTRAL STREET NATICK MA 01760 PAGE SIXTEEN THE SASSAMON 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 away? 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 be. RUTH AMES. CLASS ORATION 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- erwise. 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 other animals. 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 day. Next came the telephone, bringing a closer, more personal connection between the communicants. Its usefulness is be- THE SASSAMON 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- phere itself. 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 PAGE SEVENTEEN 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? ARTHUR BUCKLEY.

CLASS POEM When we think back upon our last four years Of knowledge gained, of friendships tried and true, Of all that made up our small world of school, We think also of the great things that came 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 shore. And soon we found that three years had gone by, Hastening when we wished them to go slow. Next Seniors-oh, the meaning of that word- 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 obeyed- A homage to our men "gone west." And corresponding to the election Of that fine man who leads our nation now, 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 left, And then six days, and now the End. But may ideals of childhood linger near, Let's not leave them behind nor discard them 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 meet. And thus we leave-our eyes turned tow- ard a goal- Our hope is that we'll reach it-everyone! HELEN HOUGHTON. u ....'-5 'no 5 P4 AU u .2 C N 9 E D 94 50 C .... s..

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- ciency.

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. JUNIOR PROMENADE 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 SASSAMON PAGE TWENTY-THREE ATI-IEFICS 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 hits. 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 Needham also. 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, Natick High Natick's hits and, combined bases were able Deeley, pitching hits, while Esty, lowed only five. 22-4. 6, Framingham High 1 were at the right time, with headwork running to defeat F. H. S. 6 to 1. for F. H. S., allowed nine twirling for N. H. S. al- Good hitting by Dean and Waters enabled Natick to score, also sensational fielding by Powers and Grady. Wise and Murphy hit best for F. H. S. Dean hit and connected for runs each time he did. The lineup: F. H. S. N. H. S.
