FREDERIC W. KINGMAN
Superintendent of Schools
HERBERT H. ARCHIBALD
NATICK HIGH SCHOOL
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.

ADDRESS GF WELCOME
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
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-
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
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
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
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
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-
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
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
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

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
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
"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.
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
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-
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-
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
Hilda Smith-Swimming Instructor
Elizabeth Putnam-Riding Instructor
YEAR Book, 1926 17
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
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
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
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
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-
"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-

To thee our thoughts do turn,
Steadfast, loyal, brave and true,
Our deeds shall bring thee fame.

We'll ever hold thy colors high
And bring thee honors many fold
-C. LUCILE NICHOLS, '26

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. To the school we give, devise and bequeath our remarkable
scholarship and the me.mory of our general superiority, trusting that no
future class will have the bad taste to aspire to surpass us.
II. To the entire faculty we bequeath peaceful nights, unmarred
by horrible dreams of all the knowledge, heretofore unknown, which
we have given them.

his, at the all-important moment.

polish, which we trust will be of assistance on future automobile rides.
XVI. We leave to Evelyn Harvey a railroad ticket to the "Wild
and Wooley West," where we hope she will find sufficient excitement.
XVII. To Elliot MacSwan we leave a runabout, so that he can
more easily go to and from Wellesley.
XVIII. To the underclassmen We wish to make the following per-
sonal bequests, hoping that they will be accepted by them with our own

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 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.

"Mahly" is of the firm, still sort with that

"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-

out class dues.
