ARCHIBALD Principal NATICK HIGH SCHOOL EDITGRIAL The end of another school year is here-the time to stop and look back-to take account of ourselves-to see how much has been accom- plished and how much left undone. We see mistakes that might have been avoided-things here and there that might have been done differ- ently. But then there are brighter spots along that traveled highway, -we feel again little thrills of satisfaction, at remembering certain tasks well done, praise for work Well finished. The memories, however, that shine the brightest are of the good times in which we took part-the friends that laughed with us-the various activities that broke the monotony of every-day life. Variety was always the spice of life and it is most natural to remember those outstanding occasions in which we played an important part or those times when we enjoyed ourselves the most. But that which really means the most in our record of daily life is the progress we have made--and by progress I mean the results of every-day work-well done. Results depend entirely on the amount and quality of the energy we put into our work. That is one of the most ancient and well known rules of mankind. We will admit that at times this ruling seems to fail in working out-that sometimes amaz'ng results are obtained by very little work. But in the reckoning of even a short Year's time such cases are small and far apart-we mark them the more because they are so unusual- so exceptional. And then again can any results be obtained without Work. Temporary results, perhaps, surface results, but they soon slip into obscurity and are lost. We receive wonderful marks in a sub- ject that We have never studied, but what good has it done us? We were quick in catching at bits of knowledge here and there, but not thorough in learning it as a whole. Our time may not have been really lost, but we haven't always used it to the best advantage. I mention this now because it especially applies to the modern young person, and is a criticism that has been made of nearly all of us. Here we have reached another milestone and it is time to turn over a new leaf. In whatever fields we may find ourselves let us make it our object to achieve results through work well done. But why linger on such a thought-facts that we all probably real- ize anyway. Any one reading this might be horribly mistaken into thinking Natick High had not come up to standard this year. Up to standard? I should say we were! We are Well justified in consider- ing the year to be a great success. We have accomplished much and may proudly look back at a year of prosperity and satisfaction. And now as we say "Good-by", the Sassamon Board wishes the best of good fortune to all-to friends and teachers and fellow stu- dents-those who are leaving and those who take their places. C. L. N. 9Z6I 'NVE-ILL 'YIVELLGOJ ADDRESS GF WELCOME AND ORATICN One of the pleasantest tasks that fall to the lot of the president of the Senior Class is the extending of the class 'greetings to parents, teachers and friends on this happy day, which is second only to gradu- ation in its joys. p ' To our parents, first of all, we give a hearty welcome. They have followed our careers with the keenest and most unseliish interest, al- wayslready to encourage and to inspire, to praise us when we succeeded and to sympathize when we failed. D To our teachers, who, during our school hours, act as "guides, phil- osophers and friends," we also extend our Welcome with a word of appreciation, which we hope does not come too late. s To all our other friends whose presence here attests their high regard for us and their interest in our welfare, we give our kindest greetings. l The coincidence of the graduation of this class of 1926 and our nation's 150th Anniversary makes it fitting that we, who have been associated together during the past four years in this system of public education, should on this occasion, pause a few moments and consider the Declaration of Independence, which gave us our democracy and to whose author our perpetual thanks are due for the tremendous impetus he gave to the then new idea of public education. On July 2, one hundred and fifty years ago, Congress adopted a resolution "That these United colonies are and of right ought to be free and independent states," and on July 4 American independence was pub- licly proclaimed. There were no longer thirteen British Colonies, but in their place a new nation. the United States of America, The Declar- ation of Independence was received with enthusiasm throughout the country. 'Everywhere it was read aloud t'o the people. who gathered to hear it amid the booming of guns, the ringing of bells and the dis- play of fireworks. The Declaration of Independence was inevitable, it was forced into existence by circumstances over which no one man or group of men had control. It came about despite the opposition of strong men who later yielded to the demand for it and became its most ardent sup- porters. I The circumstances which forced the Declaration into existence were summed up in the signers' complaints against King George. He had refused his assent to laws necessary for the public gfioodg he had 6 THE SASSAMON forbidden his governors to pass laws of pressing importance, he had refused to pass laws for the accommodation of the people, unless they would in turn relinquish some of their rights. The fact that independ- ence was sought, not for its own sake, but merely as a means to an end was made quite clear in the Declaration itself, b-y its author. "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are endowed by their Cre- ator with certain inalienable rights, that, to secure these rights, gov- ernments are instituted among meng that whatever form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government." Then Jefferson went on to show that the British government had become destructive to the ends for which governments were instituted, with item after item of appalling indictment of bad government. Thus the whole document was a complaint of and a protest against bad government and a pledge to establish and maintain good governmentg a burning desire on the part of the colonists for good government was the reason for the Dec- laration, it was the purpose of the revolution, it was the end to which independence was only a means. When Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence he put into form ideas that had found expression time and again in the colonies. He caught inspiration from sturdy New England, the Middle colonies and the sunny South. The air was charged with independence and every man who breathed it became a patriot, ready to subscribe to the Declaration, "Give me liberty or give me death," yet not until blood was shed did absolute independence rise defiant. It is difficult was us, even now, to appreciate the courage and faith of the fathers in founding a republic on the principle that man. as God created him, may b-e trusted with self government. History af- forded them' no precedent. In Athens both political and personal free- dom were unknown to the mass of the people. The Roman republic was a patrician class. The republic of Italy were limited and aristo- craticg those of Switzerland were a group of cousinsog and that of Po- land a republic of guilds and land-holders. F'or the first time in history the fathers made a declaration of the political equality and right of self government of all men. When later they had won their independ- ence and framed a constitution of government, "they stood before the world as the first completely free and democratic nation which has ever existed." This might never have come to pass if the clear-sighted Jefferson had not had unbounded faith in the mass of the people. He alone had divined the fact that they were competent morally and mentally for self government. "I am sure," he wrote in 1796, "that the mass of cit- izens in these United States mean well, and I firmly believe that they will always act well whenever they can obtain a right understanding of matters." YEAR Book, 1926 7 Jefferson's lifelong endeavor was to enable the people to form this right understanding by educating them, and to this education he de- voted himself tirelessly. This is clearly shown in a letter to Governor Tyler: "I have indeed two great measures at heart, without which no republic can maintain itself in strength: first, that of general education, to enable every man to judge for himself what will secure or endanger his freedom, second, to divide every country into hundreds, of such size, that all the children of each will be within a central school in it. These little republics would be the main strength of the great one. Educate and inform the whole mass of the people. Enable them to see thatit is to their inter- est to preserve order, and they will pursue them." , The simple inscription on his tomb, at Monticello, sums up in his own language as no orator- can, the character and career of Thomas Jefferson: "Here was buried Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declara- tion of Independence, of the Statute of Virginia for religious freedom and father of the University of Virginia." Political freedom, religious freedom, and the education that makes them possible and safe were the ends for which he strove, the monuments by which he desired to be remembered. Neither power nor honor, office, popularity, nor fame entered into the mighty heart that stirred that mighty soul. On this eventful day of our lives, as we give serious thought to the significance of the Declaration of Independence and its author. let us call to mind the word of Justice Story: "Let American Youth never for- get that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils and suf- ferings and blood of their ancestors. The structure has been erected by architects of consummate skill and fidelity, its foundations are solid, its compartments are beautiful as well as useful, its arrangements are full of wisdom and honor, its defences are impregnable from without. It has been reared for immortality, if the work of man may justly aspire to such a title. It may nevertheless perish in an hour by the folly or corruption or negligence of its only keepers, the people." Finally we can but conclude that this is the message which our beloved country gives to us who are graduating in this year of her 150th anniversary. That we renew our faith in the Declaration of Independence, that we keep in mind the lesson taught by the interven- ing years, that in order to have our American Democracy realize its great ideals, and solve the problems that will confront it in the future, we, as future citizens must help develop and maintain throughout the land a citizenry of enlightened, united and self-sacrificing Americans, dedicating to the task if need be, as did the men of 1776, "our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor." 'IAIVELL 'I'IVEI'.LEDISVH iS IHIS L 9361 CLASS HISTORY It has been stated by Carlyle, the great English philosopher, that "Histories are as perfect as the historian is wise", therefore, dear friends, prepare yourselves for whatever mistakes may occur in the following narration: Ever onward, ever upward has been the goal to which we have pointed the prow of our good ship " '26"i. Our voyage is now over. At times the way was rough and uncertain, but now, with every diffi- culty overcome, we have attained the object of that struggle and find it more brilliant and full of promise than we could have imagined. The history of our four eventful years in High School is, no doubt, in many respects like that of other senior classes. When we entered Natick High School, in September, 1922, the event was a great one for alll of us. As Freshmen it promised to be a 'novel experience for us and we entered it with high and lofty ideas. How differently we felt four years ago than we do today, It seemed as though we would never become acquainted with the many rooms, halls and stairs. We regarded our upper-classmen with awe, and won- dered how they could be so unconcerned about where they were to go and what subjects they were to take. It seemed that we would take forever to reach that height, but, I presume, that we were no more out of the ordinary than any other group of green freshmen. Of course, we freshmen thought ourselves quite fine, but I must say, recalling some of the incidents of initiation, that this fine feeling was soon taken out of us by some of our upper-classmen. Our freshman year we made no progress toward class organization. Our main task that year was to become acquainted with both faculty and the new school routine, to steer clear' of the D's and to keep an ever vvatchful eye for any suspicious moves of our upper-classmen. Thus we passed from Freshman to Sophomore. Our Sophomore year we made some progress toward class organization. We held our first class meeting in November and elected Alfred Dumas, as president, Dorothy Blanchard, as vice-president, and William Hopf, as treasurer. Although we organized as a class, nothing of note was accomplished, but you must not lose sight of the fact that we had now attained the great height of a Sophomore and were no longer in that unappreciated class, which we had just left behind. When our Junior year came along, everyone in the class was eager to do his share toward making it a success. This year we made rapid steps toward class organization. We held our first class-meeting in October and placed Walter Kelley on the throne, as presidentg Vera Swenson, as vice-president, Edward Connolly, as treasurer, and Irene Shea, as secretary. 10 THE SASSAMON The next thing to claim our attention was the Junior Prom. This resulted in the greatest social success. of our High School life and it still retains a cherished place in our memories. Although it was more formal than other years and the gathering much smaller our treasury was enlarged considerably. The reason for the introducing of a formal Prom was, that the year before, on account of the large attendance, the floor became rather weak, and Mr. Archibald gave us to understand that he was not going to grow a crop of grey hairs worrying that the floor might cave in. Everyone present enjoyed the evening and the "weaker sex" was escorted home by many of the gentlemen present. This concluded the achievements of our Junior year. The next year we attained the great height to which we had been looking forward to. We were now Seniors, the zenith of our High School career. High and mighty were we in the eyes of our under- classmates. We held our first class meeting in October and the same officers who had served during our Junior year were elected to serve a second term. The records of the class of '26 should be carved into the pages of Natick High School's history. Both in the classroom and on the athletic field, fine records have been established. We are al- ways striving to increase in scholarship as well as in athletic ability and toward this end the class of '26 has more than contributed its share. "Ted" Dumas led a fine group of chargers upon the gridiron, "Viney" Harriott possessed an excellent band of sluggers upon the diamond, and Vera Swenson, a fine quintet of girls upon the basket- ball floor. The Senior Play, "Clarence," was a huge success, thanks to the competent students who put it over. Basil Decker was the hero and Dorris Ambler, the heroine. We must not forget "Dot" Damon, in that wonderful sobbing act, Mary Hogan's manipulation of the broom, nor Mahlon Bragdon's makeup. The pl-ay was given two nights, in- stead of the usual one. It might be well to mention here that the chest expansion of the Seniors was considerably enlarged for several weeks after. June 23, 1926, will be a long remembered date for every member of this class. Upon that night the dignified Senior strutted forth and received that precious little document which is commonly known as a "sheepskin" or more technically termed a diploma, for which he has struggled for, for four long years. And so the history of the class of 1926 ends in so far as we are concerned with the classroom itself, but with the ideals and spirit which Natick High School has set before us, we feel that the history of the class of 1926 does not end here, but will go forth into the world, striving for the highest things of life and giving the best that is in us. CHARLES H. BRADY BUYS' PROPI-IECY I will be frank with you, fellow-classmates, and will tell you I have been, as far back as I can remember, an addict to somnia. The sooner you recognize the fact, the better it will be for both of us. I am going to tell you of one of my experiences. One warm summer afternoon, as I was swinging in my hammock, gazing over the landscape, which was bathed in the radiance of the sun, I was just about to fall asleep when something like the reflection of the sun in a mirror attracted my attention. I arose and discovered that the light seemed to come from a. neighboring hill. As I had nothing to do, I decided to find out the cause of this disturbance. After I emerged from some dense bushes and reached the top of the hill, what should I find to be the light, but "Redi' Kelly's flaming red hair. He was seated before an easel painting the beautiful land- scape. Beside him, on the ground, was my old friend, "Vic" Rogers, chewing a piece of grass. On "Red's" left was "Joe" Bianchi, whittl- ing a birch stick. "Waal," said "Vic," "that's purty good, 'Red.' " "Yep," drawled "Joe," "could hardly do better'n 'at myself." At this moment "Red" noticed me and after shaking hands he started asking me about myself and the town of Melville, on the Hud- son, where I lived. I told him that most everyone out there was famous, except Henry Swenson, who was Mayor, and Frank Balzarini, who was Postmaster. "Red" then invited me up to his studio, in New York, for the week-end. I was charmed with this kind invitation and told him I was delighted to accept it. So I left the boys and started toward the center of the town. On my way I was surprised to meet Percy Morrill, who was a traveling salesman for the National Clothes- pin Company, and also "Ted" Dumas, who was now a singing teacher at the Melville High School. About two o'clock, the following afternoon, I reached "Red's" studio and Paul Fitz came to the door and ushered me in. "Red" was busy painting a picture of "Billie" Hopf, who was posing as Apollo. Immediately, however, he put away his paints and suggested that we go on a sightseeing tour, since I had never been in New York before. There was a large hotel opposite "Red's" studio, which was owned by Edward Bransfield. We went in and who should I see sweeping the floor, but Brendon Graham. Stopping at the hotel were many of my High School classmates. After talking with Arthur Moran I found he was selling Fuller brushes. Arthur told us that Walter Kelly was working in the New York Commercial Bank, as teller. His duty was to tell the people where to wipe their feet when they entered. In the same institution was Mahlon Bragdon, who was the Draft Clerk,-he opened and shut the windows. 12 THE SASSAMON "Red" and I then went around New York and ended up in the Grand Central Station, where we came upon Walter Macllvain. "What are you doing here?" I asked, noticing Walter's uniform. "Why," he replied, "I have a job bidding the people good-bye." Just then a big, burly policeman told us that we had been parking too long and if we did not move on he would have us arrested. I was surprised to find the "cop" was George Mordis. When he recognized us he said, in a joking way, "I'll have to report you to the chief." "Who might that be?" I demanded. "Basil Decker," he replied. I found out from George where headquarters was and went up to see Chief Decker. He had Joseph Whitman for an office boy. After shaking hands with Basil I asked him why he became a policeman. "Well," he said, "ever since I was in the Senior play I've wanted to wear a uniform like the one I had then." "But why didn't you start in the ice business?" I asked. "I did for a time," he replied, wearily, "but I found ice wasn't all it was cracked up to be." After leaving Basil we met Wendell Gibbs and Walter Reardon, who asked us to take dinner with them. "Wen" told us all about his success in business and said he and his partner, Walter, were making a fortune on hairpins. That evening "Red" wanted to make it pleasant for me during my stay, so decided to ask some of our old classmates over to the studio, for a little party. Among the guests were George Erikson, Harold Gibbons, "Bill" McManus, Leslie Raymond and Walter Warn. George Erikson, "Bill" McManus and Leslie Raymond were ball play- ers and were sluggers for the Yanks. They hit the ball so far the out-fielders had to be on horseback, Walter Warn said he was in the cigarette business, so I warned him not to smoke too much, lest he might stunt his growth. Harold Gibbons became an actor and at this time was on Keith's circuit, his stage name being Harold Teen. I asked him why he didn't play Romeo and he told me he learned his lesson about going up into the balcony after women when he worked in the Natick Theatre. I heard from Harold that Charles Brady was an "Underwood Destroyer" or typist in a newspaper office. We talked on various topics and finally discussed our own Senior class. I found out that Vincent Harriott was a tight-rope walker. Someone always had "Vin" on a string and now the Ringling Bros. had him on a wire. At length someone suggested going to the theatre. We found Henry Grady selling tickets, Edwin Mitchell, scene-shifter, and Alfred Ljunggren and Walter Lumbert, ushers. The first number on the bill was a juggling act, by George Graham. I suppose he got his training juggling dishes at McNeil's lunchroom. The feature of the show was the Terrible Trio, members of which were Richard Bates, piano, Rob- ert Amendola, violin, and Earl Hopf, soloist. Robert Gammons gave a YEAR BOOK, 1926 13 reading, entitled, "The Bending Scene," from "She Stoops to Conquer." I noticed a man a few seats in front of us who looked quite famil- iar and yet I could not remember his name. I inquired and found him to be none other than Lyman Brown, who was the popular young Mayor. With him was a tall man with bushy whiskers, who they said was the owner of the theatre, and when he turned to speak to Mayor Brown I recognized him. He was an old friend and classmate of mine, Harold Carlson. The next morning as I was walking down Broadway I met Walter Ryan, dressed like a cowboy. I thought at first he was advertising a wild west show, but he told me he was working for that well-known Borax Co., driving the twenty-mule team. Before I left the studio "Red" told me to be sure and drop in to see Madame Lucy, on Fifth Avenue. "But who is that?" I asked. "Never mind, just drop in and ask for Madame Lucy," and he gave me the address. When I arrived I found Harold Johnson in the outer office, writing down some orders. "Is Madame Lucy in?" I inquired. "Yes, just a minute, please. Won't you sit down ?" asked Harold, as he started for the door on which was printed, in large letters, "Mad- ame Lucy, Designer of Gowns." Presently, Harold returned and said, "Step right in." I entered the office expecting to find a tall, stately woman. As soon as I saw "Madame Lucy" I stood amazed, rubbed my eyes and blinked and still the person did not change. Finally, Madame Lucy said, "Hello, 'Hank,' old top, charmed to see you." "Hello, 'Jerry,' " I fairly shouted, for it was no one else but "Jerry" Morrill. "Jerry" explained that he was Madame Lucy and just took that name to help business along. That evening I bade "Red" good-bye and thanked him for my pleasant trip to New York. When I got back home to Melville I met Carl Nelson. Poor man! He told me he was married. It was so tragic I had all I could do to keep back the tears. He advised me if I ever thought of marrying to wait until the second year, the first was always the hardest. I hired Ralph Morrill, who was Station Agent, Ticket Seller, Baggagemaster, Bell-hop, and Taxi-driver, to take me home. On my way I saw George Monaghan perched on the top of a telephone pole. He said he was working for the New England Tele- phone and Telegraph Company, as lineman, and I thought at the time he was well suited for the job, for if I remembered rightly, George al- way had a pretty good line. Last, but not least, I must tell you my present occupation. For the past ten years I have been manufacturing beds, but I intend to retire in the spring. Thus ends my story, for at this moment I awoke and found that it was all a dream. GIRLS' PROPI-IECY I have just returned from a ten-year sojourn in Europe and Asia, where I have been traveling companion to a very old and ugly man. He has finally died, however, leaving me the freedom to come back to my native country to spend some of the money he left me in his will. During my stay, I wrote my family every week and asked them to save all the Natick "Heralds", so that I could see all the news when I re- turned. They did, and here is a. great stack to look through soon. As soon as I boarded the ship that was to carry me back home, I met the stewardess, who was to fill my wants on the journey. Her face looked strangely familiar and upon inquiry I found that it was none other than Margaret Scott. As it was past the regular dinner hour, she said that she would ask the dietitian Qfor now, as you know, every steamer has onel, to prepare me a light lunch. It was no sooner said than done, for she immediately came back, bearing a tray loaded with every variety of delectable dainties. We had a nice, long talk about the old days and she told me a lot of surprising news. The first thing that she said was that some of my most intimate school-friends had organized an orchestra and it was called "The Junior Mal-Hallettsf' This orchestra had had four very successful seasons at Long Island, but it was now traveling around to all the famous dance halls and broadcasting over the radio. I asked her who played which, and she said that Doris Graham was the pianist--which was not in the least surprising, for Doris always has had a mania for playing-especially at night. Isobel Johnson played the banjo, and gave side exhibitions of the Charleston, which has become much more difficult than it was twenty years ago. This particularly suits Isobel, because she was always a fine dancer, and was repeatedly seen at all the local dances. Mary Burgess played the violin. I guess it was pretty hard for Mary to choose what musical instrument to study, for she never knew which kind she liked best, although she was always partial to a violin or drums. Ruthie Goldrick and Helen Murphy played the saxophones. Ruthie has always seemed to like wind instruments--and I am positive that she will never be obliged to stop playing, because of short-windedness. Helen, although she has never expressed any dislike for the sax, seems to favor the piano. Of course. such a small orchestra could not afford two pianos, as yet, but I do hope that they will acquire one later on, because Helen's talent will certainly be wasted. She used to be so musical that she would render all the popular songs of the day on her typewriter, up in the type-writing room, in dear old Natick High. Edna Frost marked time by the drums, which seemed more than nat- ural, because Edna. could never keep her feet still when she heard music-whether it was the "Wedding March" or the latest song, but what she kept the most perfect time to was the 11:30 dinner-bell. Mabel Spiller and Kathleen Hannafin went with the orchestra, giving YEAR BOOK, 1926 15 acts to the songs. Needless to say, this was a great attraction. Kate was our champion dancer in the old days and Mabel has a voice that even critics appreciate. Indeed, when she isn't singing jazz with the orchestra, she is soloist in St. Pa.ul's Cathedral, I was more than glad to hear that the girls had made such a huge success in their work, for they were all very enterprising. Margaret also told me that Vera Swenson and Teddy Dumas had tied the final knot. Of course, Teddy and Vera started chumming around together when they were sophomores, but I supposed that they had separated when they got through college. It seemed too bad that Vera had not continued typing. She was the expert typist of the school back in '26 and she could have been making it up instead of washing dishes for her large family. They were married directly after Vera finished college, and I suppose they are quite happy. Others that have joined the ranks of the married are: Marjorie Taft, Irma Duncan, Lydia Hall, "Dot" Fitzpatrick and Dorris Ambler. Marjorie and her husband live in Pasqua, where they have a dear. little six-room cottage, with a large sun-porch upstairs, which they use for a nursery. Irma married a quiet fellow, who was troubled with heart-disease. They moved to Texas, where she spends her life caring for him. This suits Irma to a T, because she was always of a loving nature, and delighted in doing and caring for people. "Dot" Fitzpatrick married an artist. She met him in New York, where he was living on the East Side, get- ting material for one of his famous pictures. "Dot" has done quite a little canvas work in her life, and as they both liked each other, they decided to paint together. Dorris Ambler is the happy wife of a multi- millionaire. She has everything she wants, including a squirrel coat, which has been her desire for years. She turns out to every aHair, and her name is often seen in the paper heading the social column. She has a home equipped with all gas conveniences, and I am told that she has a special gas man to attend to her appliances, Lydia Hall married her High School sweetheart, and they are now residing in Arizona, where he owns a large cattle ranch. She seems to get in touch with the outside world occasionally, because her friends say that she is perfectly contented out there in the wilderness, I suppose it seems quite natural to her, because she used to live in North Natick, when she went to Natick High. Speaking of married people, I began to wonder what had become of Irene Shea. I said to Margaret, "What did Irene Shea do after she left High School?" Margaret looked away, with a tear in her eye, and said: "Well, I suppose I must tell you, now that you've asked, but it is quite a sad story." I, of course, was somewhat surprised to hear anything of this sort, but I said, "Why, by all means tell me!" So Mar- garet began to tell me what had happened to Irene, after she left High School. 16 THE SASSAMON "Irene had been going steadily with a fellow for several years, and during her first year of college, they had become engaged. Then something unexpectedly happened that caused them to separate. Irene's pride would not allow her to make up, and as time went on, this pride turned to scorn, and later to hatred. Ever since that time she has hated the very sight of the masculine sex, believing them all to be the same, I suppose. She never told a soul what the cause cf the trouble was, but kept it to herself to remind her, in case she needed a reminder in years to come. She has changed so completely that you would never know that she was the same Irene of twenty years ago. She is a con- firmed old maid, and even her styles of dress have undergone a com- plete revolution." You simply cannot guess what she told me next! She said that Claire Reiss had become the Abbess of a Convent! This hardly seemed possible to me, because Claire had never been lonely, so far as male admirers were concerned and her various affairs had amused us all. Of course, Claire will make a good abbess, because her remarkable dis- position warrants that. Margaret said that she has become quite thin, be- cause of the worry and work that she is submitted to. I certainly would like to see Claire, if she has really become thin !-because she never used to be, to say the least! "Before I go," said Margaret, "I must tell you who is the dieti- tian on this boat." I had never thought about asking who had pre- pared the delicious food, so I was more than interested to find out if it was anybody that I knew. She told me that it was Dorothy Allen. As I remember, this vocation suited "Dot," because she always respond- ed to any dinner call without a moment's hesitancy. I suppose now that she has studied the affects of food so diligently, she does not con- sume anything that will add flesh to her figure. ' Margaret did not have any more time to tell me anything else, so I guess I will have to resort to the papers for the rest of my informa- tion. What is this I see? UHUGUENOT COLLEGE, SCHOOL FOR GIRLS. A SPLENDID COURSE OFFERED FOR GIRLS OF ALL AGES. SUMMER TRAINING CAMP AND INSTRUCTORS IN ALL SPORTS." Apply to Miss Dorothy Whipple, Dean. And here are the names of the members of the faculty: Mary Rich-Assistant Dean Thelma Wight-French Marjorie Currier--Algebra Violet Conn-English Margaret Stone--Gymnasium Hilda Smith-Swimming Instructor Elizabeth Putnam-Riding Instructor Isabelle Church-Music YEAR Book, 1926 17 Alicia Denny-History Lillian Hetherington-Latin. With Mary as assistant dean I know that the college can do noth- ing else but prosper, because Mary's executive ability is very great. Thelma has always been particularly bright in French, and I know that she will equal Miss Dyer, after several years abroad. It was through the efforts of Thelma, Mary and "Dot" that this college was estab- lished. Because they thought that the modern girls needed more of an artistic training than heretofore, they are just having the principal things taught in their school, and I am sure they are succeeding quite well. Marjorie has always excelled in Algebra and Math., although she didn't seem to care for common arithmetic when we were in the gram- mar grades together! "Dot" immediately thought of Marjorie, when they started this school as the perfect teacher for her Algebra pupils. She cabled to Brazil, where Marjorie was staying with a wealthy aunt, and told her to come back to the U. S., as she had a very profitable position for her. I know that Marjorie's pupils enjoy her, in spite of her red hair, for she has always been the best sport ever. Violet Conn was a very quiet, unobtrusive little thing, when she first came to our school, but we found out that she had a brain that that fairly ate up all the English that was fed to it. She proved by the numerous stories that she wrote for our school paper, that English was her favorite subject. She certainly will make a fine teacher for this school. Margaret Stone was the class athlete in '26, She made her' points in everything that had to do with Gym. She has classes every morning, from 6:30 until 7:30, and if she does as well by them as she has done by herself her pupils all have perfect muscles. The only thing that might possibly trouble "Peg" is that the alarm clock does not ring loudly enough or long enough. She used to hate to get up early in the morning, and I suppose now that she is obliged to, she hates to more than ever. Hilda Smith has made a specialty of swimming, and as "Dot" wished to include a swimming course in her schedule, they knew that they could obtain no better a teacher than Hilda. She has always been able to swim QI don't imagine many have forgotten the heroine act of twenty years agol, and these last few years she has been around to all the famous beaches, exhibiting her fancy diving. Indeed, she has out-shone Aileen Riggin. The summer course offered by the school consists principally of Tennis, Golf and Horse-back riding. The tennis teacher is Dorothy Walcott, whose agility and fast running make her an expert. I heard not long ago, that she was going to have a match with Helen Wills, this summer-so you see that "Dot" has used her judgment in select- ing her for an instructor. She is employed only in the summer-time by the college, so that in the winter she is left to her own resources. 18 THE SASSAMON She has taken up a course in designing, and the winter months are spent in designing dresses for promising debutantes of the season. The golf instructor is Muriel Keniston. She is still very short, not having grown over two inches, but she surely has a wicked swing in her right arm. She says that golfing develops the muscles and is really a good thing for the pupils. She, too, is only employed in the summer time, but in the winter she is employed by a concern in Spain, to go around to the different castles and manors, showing styles of decorating. Elizabeth Putnam is the riding instructor. You know she used to spend her spare time riding all around West Natick, on her father's horse so I guess she is competent enough for the position. She has a great many pupils, and she must make it pleasant for them, because nearly everyone in the school finds horse-back riding a very pleasant subject. Isabelle Church is the singing teacher, and, of course, you know how well that suited her. Isabelle has a remarkable voice, having sung over the radio and at several exhibitions during our last year. She spends her spare time giving concerts, and has as a pianist, Alice Murphy. They give a great many over the radio, and have been the cause of lots of discussion. Alice graduated from Wellesley, after which she went abroad to study music. She is quite an accomplished musician, and, of course, Alice and Isabelle make a great pair, Lillian Hetherington teaches the pupils Latin, and she certainly makes Virgil and Cicero as easy as the comic feature in the Sunday paper. You know, "Lill" made the High School term in three years, and graduated Pro-Merito, so she must know a lot about the advanced subjects. Alicia Denny instructs the pupils in history, and I am sure that she makes a good teacher. She has overcome her apparent dislike for his- tory, and I suppose that she is a second Miss Coulter by now. This paper says that the Leach Twins, as usual, have both secured positions under government regulation. I wonder if their employer has as much trouble as we did in telling them apart, twenty years ago. They both took the Civil Service Examinations and as they are both brilliant in certain lines, they must have obtained fine situations. VVell, here is a new paper-"The Town Tattlerf' I wonder where it came from! Oh, I see, it is edited by Lucile Nichols. I always knew that she would become something like that, because she proved her ability in this line when she was in Natick High. She was a member of the board for three years and the last year she was Editor-in-chief. Her special alumni column is a very interesting one, to say the least. Here is something that would interest any from our class: "BELMONT HOTEL-Proprietress, IIelen McMahon." This doesn't exactly seem strange, because Helen was always noted for taking in rumors. Of course, this will require a great deal of talking and also it needs a good business head, but I guess Helen won't mind the former at all! Her YEAR BooK, 1926 19 head is a very capable one, as all her marks showed, so I think that she will be able to carry on her work without any trouble whatsoever. Why, here is an "ad" that looks as though I might know the owners of the advertised store! "BUY MGRRIS DRESSES! YOU WILL FIND THAT THEY ARE MORE THAN SATISFACTORY IN QUALITY AND PRICE." Why, I believe that must be Nellie Morris. I never knew Nellie very well, because she was very quiet and exclusive. It says here that each dress is modeled and that a perfect fit is guaranteed. The model, Miss Mullen, also does any alteration work that may be desired. Why, the model must be Anna Mullen-at least she went around with Nellie, and I don't think that it could possibly be Louise. Why, surely enough, because down here it says that Miss Anna Mullen has taken a course in dress designing and is capable of making the most difficult alterations. Down here in the left-hand corner is an advertisement for girls to work in the Rafferty Candy Shop, There was a girl in my class by the name of Marguerite, and I wonder if it might not be the same one. As I remember, Marguerite had quite a sweet tooth, and she could always be depended upon to make candy for any of the school affairs. I hope that such a close contact with sweets Won't spoil her girlish "figger," because I distinctly remember that she wasn't so terribly thin! It says here that Helen Richardson has taken in her thirty-fifth orphan! The "Children's Home," of which she is the matron, seems to be doing a thriving business. Helen was always loving and kind, and I remem- ber that she used to push baby-carriages all around North Natick, in the afternoons, after school, so it is not at all surprising that she has taken this up for her life work. In the "Town Talk" column it says to be sure to listen over the radio, Tuesday evening, to the talk given by Myrtle Douglas, on "How to Keep Your Hair Waved Perfectly." Myrtle's hair certainly was her crowning glory-and she always kept it waved. It says here that she has studied hair-dressing for eighteen years and that she has become a renowned specialist. Perhaps if I go to her she can tell me how to keep from getting bald. On the same night, the nurse, Myrtle Bolser, will give a lecture on "The Feeding and Caring of Babies." Myrtle's secret desire for years was to become a nurse, and I see that she has achieved it. Here it says that Genevieve Brady has come home on a two-weeks' vacation. She is an assistant astronomer at Harvard Col- lege, and the hard work has caused her to have a nervous breakdown. Of course, we all realize that star-gazing has its difficulties and that she probably find its quite an object trying to teach the students the different constellations. I know that she should be adept at this, how- ever, because she used to do a great deal of it when she went to school! In another section of the paper it says that Marguerite Dawborn has been promoted from stenographer to the private secretary to Wil- liam Wrigley, the famous gum manufacturer. It will not be hard for 20 THE SASSAMON her to obtain her chewing-gum with which to keep time to the clicking of her typewriter, now-and I know that she would be lost without it. I feel sure that she has chosen her vocation wisely, because she was particularly brilliant in this line at Natick High. Why, what is this advertisement down here, with such a familiar- looking person demonstrating the goods? Oh, I see, it is an adver- tisement of a patent medicine, guaranteed to give a sylph-like figure. The name of it is "Marvel Reducing Tonic," and it is demonstrated by none other than Ellen Dillon! Ellen's one ambition was to be thin, and I guess now that she has found such a position, her desire will be gratified. Here is a very attractive-looking ad that says "Come in and dine at the BLUE CUP AND SAUCER. Proprietress, Elizabeth Hurd." I knew that Elizabeth would follow up this profession, because she was always interested in it. When she went to school, she used to spend every summer at Haniptcn Beach, where she got most of her experience. She is very tasty, and her tea-room, although I have not seen it, is sure to be the latest word as far as tea-rooms are concerned. It gives a short editorial here about the Sanders divorce case, and it gives as a defensive lawyer-Anna McKenney! Anna's vocal powers are certainly not at all weak, and she will never lose a case, because she has lost her voice, I am sure. Her inventing powers are very keen, and I do not suppose that she left any room for imagination. "Marion Reagan, the famous economist, will write an article, which will appear in the Boston Sunday Herald, on the 14th of June, 1946," is the next thing that greets my sight. I am greatly surprised at this, because Marion never had any great love for Economics. She and I used to be in the same class, and if I remember correctly, she did not like to prepare her lessons. She has probably overcome this ten- dency, and has taken up the subject in full, so as to gain more knowl- edge. "Be sure and come to the entertainment, given for the benefit of the Children's Home, next Friday evening, at Concert Hall! Mlle. Evelynne VVarnne will dance several solos for the benefit of the or- phans, and besides this, there will be other attractions. Admission 75c." This surprised me more than anything else that I have heard, for I never thought that Evelyn would take up that profession. She always seemed to me to care more for a secretarial career. She took a trip abroad, after leaving college, and, of course, this must have changed her mind. Why, what's this? Here is another advertisement for the same kind of reducing medicine that Ellen Dillon is selling! Why, it is Eleanor Sprowle, and look how fat she is! Why, I declare, it is the same kind--"Marvel Reducing Tonic," only it is guaranteed to fatten! What queer things have happened since I went to school, twenty years ago! There were all sorts of inventions to make people thin, but I YEAR BOOK, 1926 21 I i ' ' ' " never saw one that would make one fat or thin, just as one desired! Eleanor used to be the envy of we fat people, but I guess now that she has attained her one ambition, we will have to find some other thin person to envy. "ADVICE TO THE LOVE-LORN, By Muriel Mann," is the head- ing of a large column, in which Muriel gives expert advice to people whose love affairs have gone wrong. Who would have thought that Muriel would have taken this up for a vocation! She had been pre- paring for a Normal School course, but, of course, something caused her to change her mind. Do you suppose the same thing happened to both she and Irene? Whatever the cause, I hope that she won't give any poor, love-sick person wrong advice and get herself into trouble! UBEATRICE BARRATT GIVEN IMPRISONMENT FOR SIX MONTHS FOR FRAUDULENT SALE OF LAND!" These are the headlines of the next paper that I pick up. Upon reading it, I find that she bought some land in Florida and started a real estate business. She sold some land that was nothing but a swamp and guaranteed it to be the best farming land obtainable. She was warned by the police not to sell any more, but she did not heed, so she has been put under arrest. Beatrice has always been a great schemer, and many of her former teachers will be sorry to hear that she has met such a fate. "FORMER RESIDENT OF NATICK OBTAINS GREAT HONORS! AWARDED FIRST PRIZE FOR PICTURE IN ART MUSEUM! !" This is the next thing that I see. "Margaret Blanchard has been awarded the first prize for her wonderful picture, 'Dawningj at the Art Museum, in Paris. Three rrnowned judges awarded her picture the prize at the contest, held two days ago." I am very much pleased to see that "Peg" has won such great honors. She has always been clever in all lines, but I supposed that she would follow a secretarial career, because she was always so smart in stenography and typewriting. It says that she has been studying art for nineteen years, so she must have begun her traveling directly after leaving High School. I suppose now that she has become so famous, and has so much to do, she won't ever have time to think of her old school friends, 'way back in Natick! It says here that a number of missionaries have just returned from the Fiji Islands and among them is Lillian Gorey!! Lillian has always been very quiet and this occupation suits her perfectly. I wonder how she finds it down there! I should not think that it would be an easy matter trying to teach the natives anything, but Lillian is Patience personified, so I guess she won't find it hard! In the Foreign News Column. right alongside of that piece about the missionaries, it says that Jane Pettis has established a large cocoa- nut grove, down in Honolulu, and that she is doing a fine business. Jane used to take care of children when we went to school, but appar- ently she found that uninteresting as compared with taking care of cocoanut trees! If cocoanuts are as hard to raise as children, I know 22 THE SASSAMON that she will be very wealthy before many years, because she always has been a perfect mother to her charges. There seem to be quite a few of the members of my class engaged in business outside the country. Here is an item that says that Jessie Muskat has opened a real estate office in California. I hope she has better luck than "Bee" Barratt had, You know Jessie was one of the smartest in our class, and as the real estate business requires a great deal of hard work, she will fill the position perfectly. She has employed a large staff, and seems to be the busiest of any of the new offices. Here is a dispatch from a Virginia paper. It says that Miss Helen MacCarrick has inherited a large southern mansion, and that she will -take possession shortly. Helen's ancestors hail from the South, and it has been her greatest wish to become hostess of one of these man- sions. It looks as though her desire had been fulfilled. She has over- come the shyness that she had when she went to school, and has be- come quite sophisticated! Her stately manner does credit to her, in fact it is the one thing that would impress a stranger. I have read about every member of the Senior Class of '26 and have learned something about each and every one of the girls. There are two or three more that I know nothing about, and have in no way been able to find any trace of them. I hope that they, too, have suc- ceeded as well as their fellow-members. But, just a minute! Here is an article in the paper that says that Virginia Leith has taken over the physical directing class of WEEI, and will begin broadcasting the morning exercises over the radio tomorrow morning. This quite suit- able for "Ginger," because she was our second best athlete. She played on the basket-ball team, and was noted for her spriteliness. She was a very fast runner, and an all-around good sport. I sort of ex- pected "Ginger" to turn out to be an English teacher-she was so fond of it, but I suppose this appealed to her the most! I am sure her pupils will find that they have acquired muscles like iron, after having her for a teacher for one or two months. It also says here that the Super- intendent of Montana Normal School will give a short talk on "Why Your Boy and Girl Should Attend College." Miss Mullen has for many years persuaded parents to send their children to college by showing just how valuable it is to their after-life. She has given several lec- tures over the radio, and has received many replies, thanking her for her talks. Louise Mullin, a Supervisor of a Normal School! Although she studied for Normal School I never thought that she would get there, because Louise was not that type. I thought she would invent another type of automobile or something like that, but I see she hasn't. I suppose she must have taken a sudden like to studying, and decided to make herself useful. I It also says here that Bertha Silver is home on a month's vaca- tion. She has been working very steadily as a confidential secretary to a Wall Street broker, and has certainly earned this vacation. She YEAR BOOK, 1926 23 . always was a hard worker, and it doesn't seem strange that she would be doing this sort of work. She was the Salutatorian of our class, and has certainly earned the position that she is now filling. The only thing that I am afraid of is that she will become near-sighted from watching her work too closely. "Mary Hogan, the famous lecturer, will give a talk, next Monday evening, in the High School Hall, on 'What History Does for Students! Miss Hogan is a delightful speaker and a good attendance is desired." This did not surprise me, because Mary carried off all the history prizes, back in Natick High. She was also a fine elecutionist, so I know that this lecture will be well worth hearing, Elena Bianchi is the last on my list. 'She has become a hostess in one of the newest and most exclusive hotels in Florida. This particu- larly suits Elena, as her refined beauty and culture makes her eligible for this sort of work. Well, I don't see anything more pertaining to my classmates, so I guess I'll go shopping and spend some of my hard- earned money. DOROTHY DAMON, '26 SCHOOL CALENDAR, I 925-I 926 Score: N. H.

LUCILE NICHOLS, '26 CLASS WILL We, the Class of 1926 of the Natick High School, Natick, Massa- chusetts, being of sound and disposing mind and realizing that our High School career is near an end, do hereby make, publish, and declare the following as and for our last will and testament, that is to say: I.

CLASS OF 1926 fSealJ ELENA BIANCHI CLASS POEIVI The wind through the apple blossoms passed And sighed, and died away. The end of the season was reached at last, For in another day , The falling blossoms would all be gone, Scattered ev'ry one. But instead of the end, 't was only the dawn Of a summer well begun. Where the blossoms were, red apples grew Full and sweet and round. Who thought that those blossoms, like petals of snow, Would ever bear fruitage so sound! Like blossoms our school days must come to an end. Silently dropping away. Life's springtime is o'er, but round the bend The riches of life hold sway, THE SASSAQION The class-mates of these happy days, With whom we've worked and played, All now are going their separate ways With fortunes yet to be made. For "Twenty-Six" must scatter now, To others yield her placeg But in her thoughts a memory dwells, Which time will ne'er efface. --C. LUCILE NICHOLS, '26 OUR COLLEGE ROW Mahlon Bragdon-M 1.

"Kell" belongs to that brilliant class who always know their lessons. Walter has been kept very busy during his four years and has been a very able class president. '5Skfllful alike with tongue and pen." THE SASSAMON DCROTHY MAY ALLEN, "Dot" Wilson School Glee Club 1, 2, Dramatic Club 1, 2, 3, 4, Junior Prom Com. 3, Sassamon Short Story Contest Hon. Mention, Clothing Club, V. Pres. 4. Dorothy is very quiet, but she is one of our best. She is an expert seamstress and cook. In spite of your quietness, Dot, you certainly know the way to a man's heart. "Of manners gentle, and of affections mild." DORRIS ESTELLE AMBLER, "Dorry" Bacon School Dramatic Club 2, 4, Glee Club 3, Operetta 3, Subscription Editor Sassamon 4, Senior Sassamon 4, Senior Play 4, French Club 4, Cheer Leader 4, Excursion Com. for Com- mencement, Junior Prom. Com 3. Doris has that rare charm called cheerful- ness, a thing which wins the hearts of all. Her joy is incredible when the mail from Arkansas comes in, "How brilliant and mirthf-.ll the light of her eyes . Like a star glancing Qut from the blue of the sky." ROBERT PHILIP AMENDOLA, "Bob" Felchville School Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4, Orchestra 1, 2, 3, LQ Dramatic Club 4, Commencement Com. 4, Senior Sassamon 4. We'll have to admit that "Bob" can fiddle. He has even broadcast from WEEI. He is also a real dyed-in-the-wool poet and is very clever in drawing, There are other talents, but we are leaving the details to a more explicit and painstaking biographer. "ln all this land has never been A younger fiddler of such ability." YEAR BOOK, 1926 FRANK JOSEPH BALZARINI, "Bike" Felchville School Baseball 23 Football 3, 4g Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4g Dramatic Club 3, 43 Musical Club Play 3 Frank is now the fastest boy in the class-- on a bicycle. He has a very good voice, as we know, after hearing him sing as Reginald, in the "Riddle of Isis". He is also noted for his vocabulary. "His tongue was framed to music Ancl his hand was armed with skill." BEATRICE AUGUSTINE BARRATT, "Babe Eliot School Dramatic Club 3, 45 Glee Club 1 "Babe" came from the "Sunny South" her first year, but moved to High Street-guess the South was too quiet for her, Anyway she can paint pictures that are true to life. "A maiden with eyes of brown." l RICHARD EDWARD BATES, "Batesie" Wilson School Basketball 3, 4 Mgr., Debating Club 45 Dramatic Club 3, 4, Glee Club 25 Senior Play Com. It is hard to say in just what field our good- looking "Batesie" shines, but he was a super- success as manager of our noble basket-ball team. Natick High will surely miss his cheer- ful countenance and his noiseless Ford next year. "The thing that goes farthest toward mak- ing life worth while is just a little smile."

Elena is the loveliest girl among us She will always be remembered for her perfect profile and charming ways, We hope Elena succeeds as well at Radcliffe as she has in Natick High. "A maiden, modest a-nd yet self-possessed Youthful, beautiful, and simply dressed." JOSEPH JOHN BIANCHI West Natick School The Worst thing that can be said about him is that he hails from West Natick. But "Joe" 's a good sort, quiet and steady, you know. "And of his part as meek as is a mayde He never yet no villaney hath said ln all his lyfe unto no mane? Wight He was a verray parfat gentil knight." MARGARET LOUISE BLANCHARD, "Peg" Wilson School Peg is sober and studious and thoroughly likeable, She's very clever in drawing and is noted for her good taste and common sense. "She doeth little kindnesses Which most leave undone or despised." YEAR Book, 1926 MYRTLE BEATRICE BOLSER, "Myrt" Wilson School Myrtle, our tall and unsophisticated friend, works loyally at the five and ten. "Myrt" makes a good actress, they say, and we're willing to believe it. "Her whole heart's welcome in her smile." ! CHARLES HENRY BRADY, "Carlo Wilson School Commencement Com 45 Class Historian 4, Typewriting awards, L, C. Smith 555 Under- wood 425 Sassamon Board 4. Charles is one of the most popular fellows in the class and a brilliant student. He ushers at the Natick Theatre and has become quite an authority on Movie stuff. "Thou canst be strong and yet not tyrannous Canst righteous he and not intolerdntf' GENEVIEVE THERESA Greenhalge Grammar School, Lowell, Mass. Chairman of Art Com. Senior Play, De- bating Club 4. Genevieve joined us in our junior year, coming from Newton A bright girl, Gene- vieve, and as a debater she makes them flinch. "All homage to the mastery which is thine." r w BRADY THE SASSAMON MAHLON HART BRAGDON, "Mahly" Bacon School Valedictorian5 Senior Play 45 Senior Play Committee 45 President, Debating Club 45 Dramatic Club 45 Junior Prom Committee 35 Junior Party Committee 35 Prize Essay, Boys 25 Sassamon Board 35 Senior Sassamon 4. "Mahly" is of the firm, still sort with that quiet strength of character that makes a man of purpose-and because this is your first and strongest impression of him you are apt to miss that gleam of real humour-unless, of course, you really know him. "Men of few words are the best men." EDWARD JOSEPH BRANSFIELD, "Ed" Eliot School Dramatic Club, President 45 Debating Club 45 Cheer Leader 45 Debating Team 45 Senior Play 45 Class Gift Committee, Chairman 4. "Ed" is known for his debating talents- his enthusiasm and vigor-remember "Hubert Stem"'? His ambition is to become manager of Wellesley Inn, but what a politician he'd make! "ln arguing, too, he well could show his skill, For e'en though vanquished he could argue still." LYMAN GEORGE BROWN, "Bud" Felchville School Junior Prom Committee. "Bud" comes from a farm in the wilds of North Natick and this seems to serve as a great excuse for arriving at school--well- you know when. "Ready in heart and ready in hand." YEAR BooK, 1926 MARY AGNES BURGESS, Reefer Wilson School Dramatic Club 4. Mary is a good pal and is a very popular young lady. She did have a good time at Hampton Beach, but somehow she is more in- terested in Sudbury at present. "You are dear to our memory still." HAROLD FREDERICK CARLSCN Wilson School Harold is the best sport we know. Even the teachers can't resist his witty remarks fthe typewriter teacher will vouch for thish, and he's certainly kept them guessing about the canary bird that flies into the room with the Window shut. "He whistles as he goes, lighted-hearted lad." ISABELLE C. CHURCH Tonopah Grammar School Glee Club 3, Treas. 43 member of the Senior Play 45 Dramatic Club 3, 4. Isabelle has been with us only a year and a half, but in that time she has found a place deep in our hearts. Her voice is certainly a talented one and we sincerely hope she will continue her vocal studies. "Her step is music, and her voice is song." THE SASSAMON EDWARD PAUL CONNOLLY, "Hank" Wilson School Dramatic Club 3. 4, Junior Prom Reception Committee 3, Treasurer of Class 3, 4, Senior Sassamon. "Hank" is really indescribable, but as a cure for the glooms he is unsurpassed. We smile the moment he appears and we fairly roll be fore he leaves. "Hank" is a good fel- low, too, and has worked hard at squeezing out class dues. "Full well they laughed with unconstrained glee At all his jokes, for malxy a joke had he." VICLET LILLIAN CONN, "Vi" MARJ ORIE Bank Street, Attleboro Sassamon Board 4, Treasurer Debating Club 4. "Vi" has already won the prize for demure- ness and we'll say she was correctly named. She gets good marks, too, and yet she's the best of fun-a proof that girls are still made that way. "A violet by a mossy stone Half hidden from the eye." LUCILLE CURRIER, "lVIarj" Bacon School French Club 4, Dramatic Club 2, 3, 4, Glee Club 1, 3, Senior Play Committee 4, Junior Prom Committee 3, Sophomore Nominating Committee 2, Senior Concert Candy and Ticket Committee, Senior Play Candy and Ticket Committee, Marjorie is our perfect titian blonde. Her hair is beautiful fand longj and she has that peaches and cream complexion, which all girls desire. "Always ready to serve" is Marj's motto and she certainly lives up to it. "What e'er she did was done with so much ease, In har alone 'twas natural to please." YEAR BOOK, 1926 DOROTHY EMMA DAMON, Bacon School Dramatic Club, Senior Play, Sassamon Boardg Junior Prom Committee 35 Girls' Pro- phesy, "D" is our coming actress and she deserves all praise for her work in the Senior Play. "D" is vivacious and lively and always has the latest of clothes. She is ever ready to laugh and it would be hard to find a better companion. "As merry as the clay is long." CCDOIIH, HD!! MARGUERITE FRANCES DAWBORN, "Marg Eliot School Dramatic Club 2. Marguerite comes from the "Solid South". She certainly can laugh--and you should watch her draw pictures! "In art she does excel." BASIL DECKER, "Bai", "Deck" West Natick School Football 43 Glee Club 2, 3, 43 Spanish Club 4g Junior Prom Committee 33 Senior Play 4. Wanted: A good-looking girl, who would like to teach "Deck" how to dance. Basil is a hero as anyone who saw the Senior Play knows. "Bai" was also one of our hockey stars. "The applause, delight, and wonder of our stage." THE SASSAMON ALECIA FLORENCE DENNY Wilson School Literary Club 3. Although Alecia is so quiet and unpresum- ing "still water runs deep" and we know there are many things about which she could inform us. "My tongue within my lips I rein, For who talks much must talk in vain." ELLEN WILLIAMS DILLON Wilson School Dramatic Club 3, 4, Dramatic Club Green Whist Committee, Senior Play Candy Com- mittee, 4g Sewing Club Committee 4. Ellen is a true believer of the old adage, "be not the first by whom the new is tried, nor yet the Last to cast the old aside." At last she had joined the rank of the "bobbed". "Thy modesty's a candle to thy merit." ' MYRTLE DCUGLAS, "Myrt" West Natick School "Myrt" is tall, with lots and lots of bobbed hair, She's a good sport, with a sense of humor, and travels to school all the way from West Natick every day. "She speaks, behaves and acts Just as she ought." YEAR BOOK, 1926 ALFRED JOSEPH DUMAS Ted Fclchville School Football 1, 2, 3, 4 Captain, Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4, Basket-ball 1, 2, 3, 4, Boys' Glee Club 2, 3, Dramatic Club 4, Junior Prom Commit- tee, Decoration Senior Class Day 3. Ted has been our star athlete for four years and has earned 12 N's. One cannot say enough when Ted is mentioned and all praise is due to him. All spare moments are spent with-well. you don't need to be told. The best of everything to you, Ted-a good scout and an A-1 sport. "He, the young and strong who cherished Noble longings for the strife." IRMA ADELAIDE DUNCAN Irm Wilson School "Irm". our quiet, business-like classmate, is sure to make a good impression on all. Of course, like all the rest, she has to have her recreation and we wonder where she spends her Sunday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. "She was wont to speak plain and to the purpose." GEORGE ERIKSON Wilson School Dramatic Club 4. George is a quiet boy--at home, a fact which several teachers might be interested to know. Perhaps it's because he mustn't break the milk bottles. In spite of it all, George is most obliging. "Work? Am I not at work from morn till night? Still, not unfrequently I make a joke." THE SASSAMON PAUL HERBERT FITTZ, "Lanky" Bacon School Football 3, 45 Dramatic Club 2, 3, 4, De- bating Club 4g Senior Play 4. "Lank" must have a marvelously developed jaw, for when he isn't arguing he's chewing gum-and often both together, He makes a good butler-on the stage, When "Lank" grows up, no matter what he does, he'll al- ways have a "High" position. "Reasoning at every step he treads, The whys and wht:-.refore's o' the simp'lest threads." DOROTHY ELIZABETH FITZPATRICK, "Dot" EDNA Wilson School Glee Club 3g Commercial Club, Dramatic Club 1, 2, 3. 4, Basketball 2. Dorothy's love of art causes her to spend most of her spare time in 39, although there may be other reasons-best known to herself. Dot's modesty and timidity explain why she never travels alone. "That of her smyling was full simple and coy." MAY FRGST, "Frosty" Bacon School Glee Club 15 Dramatic Club, Junior Prom Com, 35 Senior Finance Com. 4g Junior Fin- ance Com. 3. Edna is our Uslikum girl"-no offense, Edna. She a.lways can tell you all the news. "Frosty" is a faithful devotee of the movies and we think she is trying to perfect her pro- file, which can't be did. "Ye are better than all the ballads, That ever were sung or said." YEAR BOOK, 1926 ROBERT TRAFTON GAMMONS, "Bob Wilson School Ticket Committee Senior Play 43 Junior Prom Committee 3. "Bob" is training to become the World's greatest mechanical engineer, but we wouldn't 1 be surprised if the movies claim him. Oh, what he could do in the role of heart-breaker. "A worthy gentleman, exceedingly well read." HAROLD GIBBONS, "Gibby" Wilson School D Football 2, 3, 4. Although "Gibb" has been one of our stars on the gridiron we feel that he is his best at "stepping it" on a waxed floor. And who can keep his feet still when he begins on that piano-"For He's a Jolly Good Fellow". "The man of independent mind, He looks and laughs at a' that." WENDELL GIBBS, "VVen", "Gibby" Bacon School Basket-ball 3, 4. Genial and collegiate-these help to de- scribe "Gibbsy", but they don't suffice. At times he is as innocent as a. child, especially when he had such bad colds in English IV. . 4 "A man who's not afraid to say his say Though a whole town's against him." THE SASSAMON RUTH GOLDRICK, "Ruthie" Bacon School Dramatic Club 41 Basket-ball 1, 2. Ruth is our class "sheikess" and should have been called "Smiles", She is a grlceful dancer and good friend, "A true friencl fo the true," l LILLIAN GQREY, "Lil" West Natick School Dramatic Club 2. Lillian is quiet and unpretentious, but she makes the best of friends and always tries to please. 1 "Modest stillness and humility." E HENRY GRADY, "Harry" Eliot School "Harry", as he is known by his boy friends fwe don't know about the girl friendsl, hails from where the "Blue Danube" Hows-that is to say the Charles River. We wonder if he has followed the advice of the typewriting teacher and had his "throat troubles" looked after. i "And, certainly, he were a goode felawe." YEAR BOOK, 1926 BREND ON ROBERT GRAHAM Bren Wilson School Football 1, 2, 3, 43 President of Senior Play Committee 4. "Bren" believes that variety is the spice of life, at least where girls are concerned. But We must give him credit for holding down that center position so Well in our victorious football team. "Seldom a lacly's heart resists .His winning smile and way." D ORIS IRENE GRAHAM Bacon School Vice-President of Choral Club 2g Usher of Senior Play 43 Dramatic Club 4. Doris is quiet until you know her well and then you find she is a good sport. She is well liked by all the other sex and it really is no Wonder, "Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low, an excellent thing in woman." GEORGE EDXYARD GRAHAM Wilson School Glee Club 1, 2, 4, Debating Club 2, Or- chestra 1, 25 Junior Prom Committee 3g Cer- tificates Royal and Underwood 4. After four years of struggle, George has guided the ship of Learning safely into the harbor of Knowledge and we hope this harbor is not McNeil's Spa. "A boy he seems of cheerful yesterdays ancl confident tomorrowsf' THE SASSAMON LYDIA ELLEN HALL Eliot School Basket-ball 1, President of R. 145 Students' Council. Lydia, one of our middle Juniors, has been so studious all year that we hardly knew she was around. But she doesn't study all the the time, and there are rumors concerning a certain Rodney. How about it, Lydia? "Tall she is and winning in her ways." KATHLEEN LORETTA HANAFIN, "Kitten" Fclchville School Class Basket-ball Team 1, 2g French Club 35 Dramatic Club 33 Varsity Basket-ball Team 3, 43 Dramatic Club 4. She is a bright and shining example-of mischief-but none more lovable-and she surely can Charleston! "No one but she and Heaven knows Of what she's thinking lt may be either books or beaux Fine scholarship or stylish clothes Percents or prinlcingf' VINCENT HARRIOTT, "Vin" Bacon School Football 1, 2, 3, 4, Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4. "Vinnie" is an ideal athlete. He has won fame in football as an end, and in baseball as pitcher and captain. Because of his fame and good looks it is only natural that he should be popular with both sexes. "Far famed master of the games." YEAR Book, 1926 MARY CECELIA HOGAN, Wilson School Sophomore Nominating Committee, Junior Prom Committee, Decorating Committee for Senior Class Day 3, Dramatic Club 2, 3, 4, French Club 3 fVice-Pres. 45, Senior Play 4, Glee Club 1, Senior Concert Committee, Dramatic Club Tea Party Committee, Badge Committee fTreas.J, Lincoln Medal 4, Sas- samon 3rd Prize 4, Pro Merito. Mary is that sort of girl whom every one thinks of as just the one to be Chairman of that committee-no matter what the commit- tee's for. Mary gained fame as "Della", the Irish maid, in the Senior Play. She is also known for her scholarly achievements. "She that was ever fair and never proud, Had tongue at will. and yet wa.: never loud." "Curly-top 'jf .., ,, 1 LILLIAN LOUISE HETHERINGTON, "Lil Lincoln School Junior Ring Committee 3, Debating Club 2, 3, Dramatic Club 1, 3, Junior Play Cast 3. "Lill" is making High School in three years! She is one of the best dressed girls in school and well acquainted with all the teachers. "We call it only pretty 'Lill's way.' " EARL FREDERICK HOPF, "Dick" Eliot School Football 3, 4, Glee Club 2, 3. Earl was quite a bashful boy until he made the football team and then, of course. he changed. "His looks do argue him replete with mod- nasty." THE SASSAMON WILLIAM MATHIAS HOPF, "Billy" Felchville School Dramatic Club 2, 3, 43 Treasurer Class 25 French 33 Junior Prom Committee 3, Senior Play 4, Senior Sassamon 4g Christmas Play 2g French Club Play 35 Class Smallest Boy 1, 2, 3, 4. He may not be so big, but he's so concen- trated, so crammed full-he can't speak fast enough to say what he thinks-and he sure made a hit as "Bobby" in "CIarence". "And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew That one small heald could carry ail he knewf' ELIZABETH CARBARY HURD, "Hurdy" Bacon School VVe all know Elizabeth, with her stern frown and charming smile. Many of our girls wouldn't mind her rosy cheeks. We feel conf- fident that Elizabeth will be a success in life because of her ability to talk interestedly and unceasingly. "The tongue can no man tame." HAROLD HALL JOHNSON, JR., "Hal" Wilson School Stamp Club 35 Radio Club 4. He's really quite a personage in a quiet way and when it comes to vocabularies--Mib ton and Shakespeare must look to their lau- rels "While words of learned length and thund'r- ing sound Amazed the gazing rustics ranged around."

Did you ever see "Isa" when she wasn't laughing or making some one else laugh? In short she is a scream and when it comes to dancing she is there, and can step with the best. Charleston champions. "From the crown of her head to the sole of her foot, she is all mirth." JOSEPH KELLEY, "Red' , "Joe ' Wilson School Football 1, 2, 3, 4, Baseball 1, 2, 3, 43 Bas- ket-ball 1, 2, 43 Student Council 2, 3. "Red" is as happy as the day is long and is forever laughing. He is one of our many noted athletes and is gifted with a faultless physique. He takes to young ladies-er- who have passed High School days. "A young man, Tall and straight and strong and handsome." MURIEL KENNISTON Bacon School One of our contagious "gigglers", Muriel is very fond of the color, green, and of jewel- ry-or so they say. You can bank on a good time if Muriel is along. "You whose life is free as sunshine, finding wheresoe'er' you roam Smiles of welcome, looks of kindness, making all the world like home." THE SASSAMON VERONA MARIE LEACH Wilson School Dramatic Club 2, 3, 4, Glee Club V.-Pres. 1, 2, 3, 4, Senior Play, Commercial Club 2, French Club 3, Junior Prom, Sophomore Nominating Committee, Dramatic Club Tea Party Committee 3, Pro Merito.
