Our years in Natick High School have now drawn to a close. We are quickly coming to realize that our four years have been years of the deepest pleasure and good-cheer. We hate to leave our class- mates, all of whom we know so well, and our Alma Mater, to whose memory we shall often turn with a sigh of affection. I do not know of any critic who has called the years spent in High School wasted time. If ever there were such, he has no doubt been murdered in cold blood, or gone into forced or even voluntary exileg for such a person has neither intellect nor heart, who cannot under- stand the advantages of the High School life. Of course, we have learned the things. from books-we know foreign languages, we know our own language better, understand business methods, we have a knowledge of history, of mathematics, and of the multitude of sub- jects and curriculum has offered. But that is not all. Have we not learned many things outside of text-books? If not, then we certainly deserve to be pitied. Have we not gained friendships and acquaint- ances, which must be of extreme value to us all through our lives? By knowing and understanding each other, we have obtained a broader view of life and of the good things we may expect from it. In short, our knowledge has been increase-d, our minds have been broadened, our sociability has b-een developed, and now our sense of gratitude fittingly burst forth. Reason enough to regret our leaving Natick High. It is now our duty to show our appreciation for our school in other ways than by words. We must take advantage of what she has taught us, we must boost her fame to the skies by lifting ourselves high, we must show our teachers our gratitude for their guidance, by becoming leaders in our chosen fields, we must never let our friend- ships dwindle, and never forget to aid our Alma Mater whenever opportunity presents itself-these are our duties to our school and its teachers, to each other, and to ourselves. Departing, the Sassamon Board leaves its best wishes to the school, to the faculty, to its class-mates, and to the incoming Board, which we hope will carry on the work successfully. FREDERICK SHIPP, '27 1927 7 TEA LL FOOTBA ADDRESS OF WELCOME AND GRATIGN EN PASSANT Parents, teachers, and friends, it is my pleasant duty, as Presi- dent of the Class of 1927, to welcome you to these Class Day Exer- cises. You, who have followed us in our joys and sorrows during the past. four years, are today giving us your moral support, as we come to this first real milestone of life. Now that we are to take a more active part in life, we question- what is our aim and p-urpose in life? What shall we try to attain? Is it money? Is it an easy job? Can we honestly believe that We shall be satisiied with either of these? Everyone is trying to make money-that is a perfectly legitimate- aim. Samuel Johnson once said, "There are few occupations in which men can be more harmlessly employed than in making money." It is not "money" that is the "root of all evil," but the love of money. If we ask how much of ourselves we are Willing to sell for money, I feel sure that we would not, knowingly, sell our health. John D. Rockefeller has a fabulous income, but who of us would be willing to exchange our youth and health for his age and inlirmities? You undoubtedly remember the story of the greedy king, Midas, who prayed that everything he touched might become gold. After his prayer was granted, even his food turned to gold and his beloved little daughter, while in the act of embracing him, became a golden statue. There are a good many potential Midases today, truly they have not the Midas touch, but they have the Midas look. The dollar sign is their gauge. True Worth is indistinguishable to them, for the "universe has become a balance sheet, their minds are adding ma- chines, their hearts beat in tune with the ticker." We know that no man can get money without giving something for it. The wise man, therefore, gives labor and ability. The posi- tions we obtain when We start to work-whether now or four or eight years hence-are due largely to the education given us. What prog- ress we make after the age of twenty-five, however, depends upon us. That progress will be dependent upon the amount of study we devote to our job. Vice-President Henry Wilson said, "Want sat by my cradle. I know what it is to ask my mother for bread when she had none to give. I left home when ten years of age and served an apprenticeship of eleven years, receiving one month's schooling each year, and, at the end of eleven years of hard work, a yoke of oxen 6 THE SASSAMON and six sheep, which brought me S,S84." Still, during those eleven years of hard work, he managed to read and study over one hundred hooks. Many really big men master new subjects yearly. Gladstone took up a new language when he was over seventy. When a man ceases to study, he ceases to grow. Emerson said, "The gods sell any- thing to everybody at a fair price." This is really the philosophy of business. The job that can be learned in two hours' training is worth just what it costs, the only job which is worth much is that which demands unceasing study and work. That doesn't mean a disparagement of lowly toil. Those who perform lowly, humble duties well and cheerfully are contributing their bit to the advancement of the world. Carlyle preached the dig- nity of labors-and he followed his own preaching. With diligence are allied two other qualities equally necessary for success: enthusiasm and imagination. Napoleon's enemies used to call him the "100,000 man"-meaning that his vim and enthusiasm injected into the army a spirit equal to that of 100,000 men. Be- cause of that enthusiasm he inspired his soldiers to seemingly impos- sible achievements. History records the results of imagination, with- out it, Columbus would never have dared to sail away to our shores, if Watts hadn't watched the steam from the tea kettles, and dreamed a dream, the steam engine might not have materialized, if Benjamin Franklin had not played with his famous kite, 175 years ago this month, the present day electrical "miracles" might still be unknowng il' the Wright brothers hadn't dreamed and experimented, aviation would not have made such remarkable progressg if Bismarck had not dreamed of military power, he would not have developed such a "war machine" and the World War might have been averted. Practically all modern business of importance is the result of some dreamer's vision and enthusiasm. Without enthusiasm and intelligent imagina- tion Col. Charles Lindbergh would never have undertaken his epoch- niaking trans-Atlantic flight. With enthusiasm and imagination there is needed what has been termed a "divine discontent" to make a man dissatisfied with his in- telligence and to stimulate him to further study, to urge him to qualify for a bigger, better position, to cause him to enlist in Hbetter- ment movements", to strive for really worth while things. If Lincoln had not had this spirit of discontent, he would have remained unlet- tered like his father, and the world would have lost a leader. This spirit of discontent stimulates mankind to nobler endeavor. On the other hand, a certain degree of contentment leads to the en- joyment of many pleasures. Some of the happiest experiences of life YEAR BOOK, 1927 7 are common to all: a dip in the ocean, a cross-country walk, a little garden plot-all these are common, close at hand, and simple, if one has only acquired the habit of contentment. Stevenson says, "There is no duty we so much underestimate as the duty of being happy. By being happy, we sow anonymous bene- fits upon the world, which remain unknown even to ourselves, or, when they are disclosed, surprise nobody so much as the benefactors. A happy man or woman is a better thing to find than a five-pound note. Each is a radiating focus of good-will, and the entrance of either into a room is as though another candle had been lighted." One of the most delightful ways of acquiring this spirit of con- tentment is by reading. In this way one be-comes acquainted with new friends, he broadens his horizon and his point of view. Books furnish inspiration as well as relaxation. The-y take one from the deadening monotony of the daily routine, they give confidence, poise, companionship, they furnish glorious adventure or high romance. 'fShow me a family of readers," said Napoleon, "and I will show you the people who rule the world." And so as we set out on our great adventure we can keep Henry Van Dyke's well-known "Doors of Daring" in mind: The mountains that enclose the vale With walls of granite, steep and high, Invite the fearless foot to scale Their stairway toward the sky. ' The restless, deep, dividing sea That flows and foams from shore to shore, Calls to its sunburned chivalry, "Push out, set sail, explore !" The bars of life at which we fret, That seem to prison and control, Are but the doors of daring, set Ajar before the soul. Say not, "Too Poor," but freely give, Sigh not, "Too weak," but boldly try, You never can begin to live Until you dare to die. FRANCIS BURKE 1927 GIRLS' BASKETBALL, CLASS HISTORY In June, 1923, about one hundred boys and girls rejoiced that they had passed one milestone in life. The sign of this achievement was a mere scrap of paper, a diploma, tied with a bright ribbon. But having finished that "project," we had to face the next. So in Sep- tember we, the Class of 1927, with good courage, approached the big brick building, called "Natick High School," considering what was to happen to us once we were inside. We were all eager to start our four years in the right kind of way. We were quite surprised to find that we had to climb those winding stairs to t.he top floor, while some of the older students occu- pied the lower floors. The older students called us "Freshmen" and were continually making fun of us, while we were usually puzzled as to where we should go next. S Some of my more unfortunate friends had been seized by the powerful Seniors and were forced to endure a dre-nching at their unmerciful hands. We others were afraid to interefere, lest. we might be the next ones initiated. When our principal heard the racket, he immediately put a stop to it. This was greatly appreciated by us as freshmen. No doubt, the boys remember the good old rubber fights we had downstairs. The rubbers flew thick and fast. Even' the coach hardly dared to force a passage through the fray. 2 All our time was not spent in strife, and to 'help in the year's work, each Freshman room held a meeting. At this we elected our own room presidents who were to take charge of any meeting that was held in the rooms. Before we knew it, our Sophomore year was upon us. By this time we had become quite accustomed to the rules of the school. Although we did break quite a few, our Freshman year, we took our Sophomore year more seriously. We were no longer in that unap- preciated class, upon the third floor, but found that in coming to the second fioor, we had also to face more serious work and acquired a greater dignity. It was at the end of this year that we lost two of our room leaders, Miss Ellison and Miss Sweet. Since that time we have been unfortunat.e enough to lose many more. Everyone was eager to make the Junior year a success. We held a class meeting and elected Francis Burke, as President, Mary Childs, as Vice-President, Frederick Shipp, as Secretary, and Katherine Moran, as Treasurer. These officers were so satisfactory that we thought it best they should continue during the Senior year. The event which stood out foremost in the minds of the Juniors was their Prom. It was a formal affair and well managed. Besides giving everybody a good time we succeeded in making a profit of 3126.65 10 THE SASSAMON We all remember the day one of our football heroes was just going to take a bite of a nice, new cream puff, when "Red" Walsh came along and jogged the hero's arm with disastrous results to his face. But when the unfortunate one got "mad," threw the cream puff fwhat was left of ith, at "Red," and missing his aim, sent it into the middle of the gym floor, how we did enjoy seeing the poor fel- low mop it up under the direction of Coach Bike! At last we have reached the height of our ambition. We were Seniors, the name which we had for four years tried to attain. This was the most memorable of our whole career. At what we considered the most important game of the year, Framingham versus Natick, the score was a tie. Our boys had played well and we could feel victorious in preventing our opponents from scoring. The Senior Play, "The Charm School," was a great success, both financially and socially, thanks to the hard work of the members of the cast and the teachers, who coached us. We scored on the class of 1926 by making a net profit of i"p413.00. In May, through the generosity of the Rotary Club, the Senior boys accepted an invitation to attend a banquet and lecture, to be given in G. A. R. Hall. A number of speakers from outside towns tried to impress us with the desire for further education. A number of boys spent a few days storing up an appetite for this event, so did full justice to the banquet. Memorial Day brought a sudden change in our affairs. The whole school was dismayed and confounded to learn that we were to suffer a two weeks' vacation, on account of scarlet fever. This mis- ery, however, was cut short by the Board of Health, who summoned us back at the end of one week, so we could not be deprived of the pleasure of finishing our year's work. On Wednesday, June 8, the members of the Senior Latin Class, under direction of Bernard Trum, spent one minute in silent prayer for Daniel Mahoney, who at the time, was taking a college board examination in Latin. Unfortunately, Miss Mann, discovering it, cut short the time, but we hope Mahoney profited. When we entered Natick High School, as Freshmen, we felt that we Were, without doubt, the most industrious and brilliant class. We have proved this now by graduating with a large group of Pro-Merito students and a Valedictorian with an unusually high average. June 29, 1927, will be a long remembered date for every member of the class. Upon that night we will receive that precious docu- nlent for which we have struggled for four years. And now our battle with the world will begin. Never forgetful of the four years at Natick High School, we will strive, to the best of our ability, to secure a better and higher standing. RODNEY FRAZER, '27 BCYS' PROPI-IECY Not many of you have played the role of Rip Van Winkle, but that is what I have been doing for the last twenty years. It has been twenty long years since I left my classmates, at Natick High, to go into the Katskill Mountains to work, therefore, I decided one day to drop over to New York, in my aeroplane, for a visit. The trip over surely was amusing, for the first thing I saw, while crossing Long Island Sound, was a fishing boat, in which I recognized John Topham, as the chi-ef fisherman. At first I was surprised, but then I remembered that he always could throw a good line. I landed at Roosevelt Field, early Saturday morning. The first thing I did was to look for a taxi. When I was crossing the field I m-et daredevil Ray Ayers, who had just returned from a trans-Atlan- tic flight, in which he tried t.o beat Lindbergh's record of 1927, but Ray, thoughtless as ever, had forgotten to stop at Paris and had gone straight on to Constantinople. Ray then directtd me to a taxi stand, where, to my astonishment, I found Francis Burke. It seems that after leaving High School, he had become a champion golf driver, so the Overcharge Taxi Company hir'ed him to drive their taxis. "Fran" rushed me to the busin-ess section of the city, where my old pal, Ralph Slamin, had an insuranc office, which a rich uncle had given him. On approaching the elevator I heard a familiar voice calling, "Going Up". I looked to see who it could be and discovered Austin Fittz, all dressed up for the occasion, still taking his ups and downs in an easy way. Austin let me out on the sixteenth iioor and I proceeded down the corridor to Ralph's office. On my way down I saw a sign on a door, which read, "Hollis Holbrook-Painless Dentist-Best Work to Cash Customers", but I was in too much of a hurry to stop. At last I reached my destination. On opening the door there was a great crash and the first thing I saw was the "Immaculate" Don Holden sprawled out on the fioor, covered with soap suds, and with a step-ladder on top of him. He was Ralph's office boy and was cleaning the drop lights to get a little more light on the subject. Don conducted me to Ralph's private office, where I found him feet up on the desk, smoking a cheap cigar. Evidently uncle had not sent his weekly allowance. The office was only a fake and really the rendezvous for his friends. On our way over we passed by Intinarellifs Beauty Shop, famous for its "Face Lifting". On glancing through the window whom should I see but "Cy" Foley, sitting in the chair, having his face lifted. 12 THE SASSAMON He was still trying to be a sheik. A little further down the street we met Francis Sweeney, carrying some bricks up a ladder. I asked him how he happened to take up brick-laying and he told me that it suited him, because he was on the rocks the greater part of his life anyway. We finally arrived at the ball park and what I saw there made my eyes water. Dutton, Dowd, and Bernard wore Red "Socks" uni- forms. Because of the excited condition I was in, I yelled down from the bleachers, "How do you like the old Red Flannels?" Immediately I received a few rotten tomatoes on the side of the head. Knowing that it was no time to rectify my mistake and also knowing that the Red Sox had a few friends, I took a hasty glance, saw my old class- mates, Frank Canzano and "Bill" Mahaney, both ex-service men, still keeping in practice, and I ran out of the field, feeiing I had barely escaped with my life. At the next corner we met Eddie Greene, Paul Bianchi, and Arthur Holmes. "Eddie" Greene was a traveling salesman, for the Walkover Shoe Company. He showed every prospective customer how well his shoes had worn. Paul Bianchi seemed quite "stuck up", but I soon found out that he was in the Gum business, which accounted for it. Arthur Holmes was slipping quite a lot since entering the banana business. As I was by this time nearly starved we headed for "Stubby's Lunch", knowing that the boys never found bones in the ice cream at that restaurant. f'Matt" Murphy was the manager, so, of course, we expected a free lunch. "Hank" Rich was the tall waiter and Louis Flumer was the food inspector. Before we ate our food Louis came along with an enormous ladle and sampled it, to make sure it con- tained the right ingredients. My bill, however, was just as much as the charge to an ordinary customer and I could almost wager it was more, but the sign said, "You Pay For Service". When we left the restaurant we met John Sandow, who was now a great general and was letting the standing armies sit down for a rest. With him was Bernard Trum, who had defeated "Demar" and "Nurmi", in a spirited run, and was now thinking of running for Mayor. We then walked into a hotel to see what time it was getting to be and there we met Frederick Shipp, who was on his way to give a lecture on "How to Study". Not finding any clock we rushed out. Theodore Robinson was manager and that was his idea of saving time. We then wentinto a barber shop to get a hair cut and found the chief barber to be Horace Langley. I was, of course, surprised and asked him how long he had been a barber, to which he replied, "Why, l've been a barber ever since I was a little shaver". YEAR BOOK, 1927 13 We then returned to the oflice, where we found Joe Shea, a famous basketball player, who played some games himself to save expense for his team. Dan Mahoney, the great centerfielder in the Boston Twilight L-eague, who, when not catching flies, was catching mosquitoes, was also there. Dr. MacSwan was trying to sell them Dr. Foote's Headache Pills. After having a little chat, we turned on the radio. Muskat was advertising his tailor business, his motto be- ing,., "Pay Cash, Look What the Light Brigade Did When They Charged". Next we got Dr. Pine speaking on "Knee Troubles". Dr. Pine was followed by Rodney Frazer, who spoke on "Proper Educa- tion for Girls", as given at his school, where girls are taken at face value. Turning the dial once more we got Professor Carey, giving a speech on "The Uplifting Influences of Pool". Getting tired of the radio we decided to go to the show. At the entrance we met Mayor Wade, whose first notable act, while in office, was to raise the mayor's salary. At his left side was his right-hand man, John Gibbons, who never could be found when wanted. While I was in line to buy tickets "Red" Walsh greeted me with a wicked wallop on the back. He proved to be the owner of the theatre, so he let us in free. While waiting for the show to commence I saw "Bill" Nugent sitting across from me. I later learned he was the owner of a rubber plantation, in South America, which stretches for miles and miles. By the program we discovered Roland Chaput to be stage manager. He must have gained his practice in the Senior play. The theatre being a cheap one, the advertisements came first and much to our astonishment we saw that the coming attraction was "Mede" DeFlumere, in "Why Girls Stay At Home". The first thing on the program was the "Agony Trio", consisting of Thomas Williams, pianist, Lawrence Plouife, cornetist, and "Bob" Walsh, soloist. Next on the program was a "Bim and Black Bottom" dance, by the pro- fessional dancer, Carl Gassett, who got his early training at the Casino, in Framingham. This was as much as we- could stand, so we left the theatre, knowing why "Red" had let us in free. After a restless night, spent sleeping under the desk in Ralph's office, I arose early and bade my friends good-bye, so as to arrive in time to open my store at 8:30, even though it was always "5 to 10" there. EDWARD McMANUS 1927 BOYS'BASKETBALL, GIRLS' PRGPHECY Because of my excellent work in English, during my four years at High School, my teachers advised me to take up journalism. So after graduation I got a position on "The New York Times" and soon became their foreign correspondent, touring Europe for twenty years and not returning to my home town until the summer of 1947. As I entered the town I was feeling hungry and the first thing I thought of was Casey's Lunch Cart and those famous hot-dogs we girls used to get. I drove my car over there and was very much surprised to find Casey's Cart gone and a beauty parlor located there instead. Having been driving for some time, I though a visit to this par- lor would be quite appropriate. As I entered, who should come for- ward to greet me, but Thelma Goodwin. During our conversation she told me that the parlor was her own and that she was very suc- cessful. I remembered that her ambition while going to High School was to become a hair dresser and I was very glad that she was doing so well. As I sat there having a wave, a large advertisement over the mirror caught my eye, and it was a preparation guaranteed to make the hair curly. As I read the name I gave such a start I almost got burnt. In large letters was the name "Elaine Cole's Hair Tonic". It is said wonders never cease and I believe- it, for I took a little pam- phlet off the stand and it explained in full about the care of the skin, by Louise Rafferty. Back in school days we all admired Louise's won- derful complexion and wondered what formula she followed. As I was about to leave, Thelma told me about the new athletic building that stands where the old Natick Theatre used to be. She advised me to go there, as there was always something going on. I did so, and as I got inside I saw a gathering down at the further end of the hall and strolled down to see what was going on. I was sur- prised to see a prize ring erected there with Madelene Rogers and Ruth Marston in it, sparring. At the end of the round I asked Made- lene what the idea was and she said she was training for the World's Heavyweight 'Championship and that Ruth was kind enough to act as her sparring partner. I asked her when and where the about was going to be held and she said "Next month, at Norumbega Park". Lucy Vitale, her manager, was anxious for Madelene to resume her training, so I crossed over to the swimming pool. There I met my old friend, Evelyn Gray, who was the swimming instruct.or. She called my attention to the highest spring-board and there was Eliza- beth Sweetland, poised to make a swan dive, which she did very gracefully. As I did not get my hot-dogs, I was still hungry and went to a restaurant, across the street. A classy little waitress came to take my order and who should it be but Mary Armstrong. She was full of 16 THE SASSAMON pep and I know that she will soon be head waitress in some large hotel. As I was eating, Mildred Sutherland, coming from behind the counter, came over to my table, and after greeting me, said she owned the place. At school Mildred was always considered thrifty, so it was no great surprise that she should be owning a place of her own. She gave me a lot of information about some of my old friends. She said that Helen Keniston was an instructor of a class, consisting of college professors only, and that Jean Whelan was married now and is sadly missed in the back row at the movies. After our little chat I left there, and as I was driving up the street a small child, who appeared about three years old, ran in front of my car. Bringing the car to a sudden stop I got out to see if the child was injured. She was not hurt and imagine my surprise to see that the little girl was Mary Turner. She had not grown a bit since we went to school. I asked her where she was going and she said to the hospital to see Grace Welch, and that I almost gave her a lift. "What happened to Grace?" I asked. "Oh! Grace was a sparring partner for Madelene Rogers", was the reply. Lifting Mary into the car we started for the hospital. On the way she told me that the lives of Elinor Walsh, Eileen Stone and Anna Anderson were full of ups and downs-they were elevator oper- ators at the hospital. In order to see Grace Welch we asked for the head nurse and Mary Glynn appeared. She looked very efficient in her uniform. As we entered a private ward a nurse came out, whom we recognized as Betty Flumere. We all had a little chat and then I had to leave, to seek a hotel. A On the way, in passing a church, I noticed that a wedding was taking place. Out of curiosity I stopped and someone standing there told me it was a double wedding and that Grace McGowan and Louise McGrath were being married. I waited to congratulate them and asked Louise why they had waited so long. "We-ll", replied Louise, "I wanted a double wedding and so waited for Grace to make up her mind". Ruth Cowee, now a well known card-saleswoman, was brides- made for Louise, and Anna Larson, winner of the recent Atlantic City Beauty Contest, was bridesmaid for Grace. Noticing a beautiful theatre close by I decided to go in. The play being produced was entitled, "What Not to do and How to do it". The author was Mary Childs. She was always writing stories when we were going to school. Edith Butters ushered me to my seat and placed me beside Carrie Berry. I asked Carrie what she was doing and she said she was a History teacher. I inquired for Josephine Buckler and she told me that she thought Josephine would remain an old maid, but why, nobody knew. Then she informed me that Dor- othy Donovan must be getting serious, as she had been keeping com- pany with a certain party for three or four weeks. I mentioned Alice YEAR BOOK, 1927 17 Moore, and Carrie said that she had joined an opera company in New York. As I entered the lobby to leave the theatre I me-t Grace Houli- han, who told me that, with the help of her husband, she had planned and built the theatre. I finally reached the hotel and as I was registering, Ida Krebs picked up my bag and escorted me to my room. She said that there would be a dance and entertainment at the hotel that evening and that the orchestra was a dandy for jazz, being directed by Ida Gold- stein. Of course, I would not miss that affair. The first dance was a very popular and up to date number by Florence Frost. Then fol- lowed a light and airy dance given by Elsie Hall, which made one think of a dance by a fairy. The dances were all good, although I took special notice of these two features. Miss Betty Partridge, who had made the hit of the season as a dancing instructor, had trained all the dancers Just then I noticed May Evans coming in and asked her how shehappened to miss the entertainment. She said she had just returned from a church meeting and was not interested in danc- ing. Then I remembered that she was always very quiet and shy. As I seated myself in the lobby, Natalie Foster, Edith Kall and Florence Barker sauntered in. They told me they were the "Big Three" and were demonstrators for the Underwood typewriter, under the management of Miss Thelma Johnson. They said that during their travels they had met a lot of our old school friends. They met Jessie Godsoe in Florida and she was driving her own car in a race. Margaret Whelan was there also, trying out some new composition to take the place of rubber in tires. It was something she discovered in the chemistry laboratory, in High School, but was just getting perfected. That was all the news that night. In the morning I ordered my breakfast served in the room and it was brought up to me by Margaret. Ford. I asked her to stay and have a little chat. I gathered the information that Doris Coburn was the owner of a very modern, up-to-date circulating library. "What has become of Eileen Bowers?" I asked. "Oh," said Margaret, "she spends most of her time at Reno". fWell, blondes will be blondesj. After Margaret left I went for a ride about the town to see if I could find anybody else I knew. I was speeding on my way, when a state policeman came along and halted me, and who should it be but Elizabeth Royster. "What is the world coming to," I asked, "when they have women state policemen?" "I'm not the only one," said Elizabeth, "Mary Kelly is one also". That wasn't quite so surprising, because, all the Kellys I ever knew were on the police force. As I was driving along the main street I noticed a very attrac- tive girl. She was very slender and well dressed. As I drew nearer I could hardly believe my eyes, for lo! behold! It was none other than Doris Fair. I stopped her and asked how she had become so 18 THE SASSAMON thin and Doris told me, through some reducing tablets, prepared and marketed by Eunice Foy. Still in a daze, from such a surprise, I drove off, but soon stopped at a card shop to send some cards back to my friends in Euope. When I entered the shop I saw a very sedate and stately lady at the counter, and, sure enough, it was Marjorie Glidden. She hadn't changed a bit. Her card shop was everything a card shop should be and I secured my cards and went on my way once more. From there I took a ride through the town of South Natick. How peaceful and quiet it seemed! On the right was a large farm, where a woman was hanging out a washing large enough for several families. The woman was Mildred Gould. Mildred told me she was in charge of the farm, which produced most of the crops for South Natick. She pointed to a garden, where several people were working. Mary Beirne, clad in overalls, was superintending the planting of potatoes. Dorothy Barnicle was called the "Dressmaker" of the farm, as she dressed the chickens every Sunday. It was getting late, so I drove back to the hotel. Having some time to wait before supper, I picked up a local paper and sat in the lobby to read. The headlines read as follows: HEXTRA! EXTRA! AGNES CHAMPNEY BREAKS WORLD'S RECORD IN CROSSING LNGLISH CHANNEL!" Well, I guess Agnes obtained her swimming ability from the training at Dug Pond. In the "Local Gossip" it stated that Charlotte Mitchell had just announced her engagement to a millionaire rubber manufacturer. Another topic gave in full detail, news about a farewell party given for Evelyn Souckup and Gladys Marshall, on the eve of their departure for Europe. They were to sail at noon on the Leviathan. Under the school notes I noticed the following list of new teach- ers for the High School, for the coming term: Aurora Tamagno, French Dorothy Livingston, American History Josephine Inferrere, Commercial English Mary Hall, Commercial Law and Economics Greta Hughes, Gym teacher and a special trainer in basketball. This list seemed to be very well selected. Back in High School days these people proved very brilliant in the subjects they are now going to teach. The evening soon passed away and the next day found me pack- ing my things ready to return to New York, for further orders. As I was leaving the building, Katherine Moran came in. After a few words of greeting she told me she had just returned from Paris, where she had entered her drawings in the art contest. I was glad to hear she had won the first prize. "There is just one more person I would like to know about", I said. "Who is that?" asked Katherine. "Edith Pierce," I replied. YEAR BOOK, 1927 19 Then Katherine told me that almost everyone knew about Edith's suc- cess and fame. While she was in America she was under the manage- ment of Flo Ziegfeld and now she was in Paris, under the greatest vaudeville instructor ever known to Europe. Edith took the leading part in our Senior play, and apparently she has been taking the lead- ing parts ever since. I thanked Katherine for the information and started on my way. I gave one long look back at my old home town and the dear, red brick building, where I received my High School education. EVELYN HARTWELL SCHOOL CALENDAR, 1926-I 927 FOOTBALL SEASON Score: N. H.

ARTHUR M. LARSEN M. LOUISE DRAMEDY MABEL I. DYER CLASS POEIVI TRUE LOYALTY When We have done some deed the World will honor Or quietly have wrought some unseen good, When we have met defeat and smiled undaunted And kept on doing just the best We could, When we have he-lped to make this old world better Because of the small part that we have played, Or known a man who found his life the sweeter Because of some small effort we have madeg When we have given the world the best that's in us And learned that if we don't win, we can try, Then may we feel we have been true and loyal, And worthy of your praise, dear Natick High.

"Franny" makes an excellent leader and is the best of good sports. We all know his ability as a student, and he is, too, our ideal gentleman. He is destined for further sue-- cess and leadership. "He was a scholar, and a ripe and good oneg exceeding wise, fair spoken, and per- suading. Lofty, to them that knew him not, but to those that sought him, sweet as Sum- mer." THE SASSAMON ANNA CHARLOTTE ANDERSON, "Annie" Lincoln School Anna moves sedately among our scamper- ing, frivolous flappers and has been one of the few who has kept long "tresses". This is one of the reasons that Anna is individual. l "A moral, sensible and well-bred girl." RAYMOND AYRES, "Ray" Wilson School Debating Club lg Glee Club, Dramatic Club. We don't know "Ray" very Well, he's so busy with his school work and his job at the A8zP. But he is one of our noisy, lively classmates, who has done his share to make in N. H. S., Who wish him Well in his business career. "And when a lacly's in the case You know all other things give place."

"One who never turned her back, But marched always forward." MARY BEIRNE Eliot School Glee Club 33 Dramatic Club 1, 4. Mary is one of the- ever present "three" from South Natick. Her manner is misleadi- ing. To those who don't know her she seems very quiet and demure, but she's quite capa- ble of making a noise, as some of us know. "Such harmony in motion, speech and air -she was more than fair." EVERETT BERNARD Bacon School Everett has gone through four years of High School in a quiet manner. In his last year he had at streak of hard luck, when he had scarlet fever, but he is all right now. We wish him the best of luck and hope he will not be ill any more.

"Be wisely worldly, be not worldly Wisef YEAR BOOK, 1927 JOSEPHINE BUCKLER, "Joe" Wilson School Senior Play 45 Literary Club 2, Dramatic Club 1, 45 Glee Club 3. To us Josephine will always be Miss Cur- tis of Senior Play fame. We also think we know someone else of the same name, who has a. strange appeal for "Joe". In all her four years at N. H. S. we have not learned to know a great deal about her, but what we do know of her we will never forget. "And yet believe me, good as well as ill Woman's at best a contradiction still." FRANK CANZANO, "Chicky" Wilson School Glee Club 1, 2. A poor little lad is "Chickie" Of his future he cannot speak, His heart's all a-flutter in Latin, But English-it's just like Greek.

"Laugh it off." THE SASSAMON AGNES CHAMPNEY Wilson School Dramatic Club 3, 43 Literary Club 1, 2. We wonder and wish We knew how many hearts have been broken by these beautiful, dark eyes.

RCLAND CHAPUT Wilson School Sassamon Board 2, 35 French Club 2, 35 Glee Club 13 Senior Play Committee 4, Com- mencement Committee 4g Pro-Merito. Here comes another of our honor pupils, yes, Roland, is efficient in everything he un- dertakes and his Work as stage manager de- serves much praise.

Doris is our idea of what a Senior should be, dignified, clever, studious and good-look- ing. No fellow's wiles can attract her--al- though, perhaps, her heart is claimed else- where.

ELAINE COLE Wilson School Senior Play, French Clubg Literary Club5 Class Ring Committeeg Dramatic Club5 Glee Clubg Pro-Merito. In spite of all the many bobbed heads around her, Elaine never yielded and sheared her lovely locks, which combined with her complexion, made her the perfect blonde, who showed up so well in our Senior Play. She is one of the few who had the courage to take board exams and when she gets to Wellesley we hope she will be successful. "A daughter fair, So buxom, blithe, and clebonairf' RUTH COWEE, 'Etta Wilson School Basketball, Team 15 Dramatic Club 15 Lit- erary Club 25 Debating Club 2. She is not the kind of a girl you'd forget, Just look and you'll see all the while And when there's a crowd around, Ruth's always there with a smile. THE SASSAMON - YL, MEDIA DEFLUMERE Wilson School Football 2, 3, 4, Baseball 43 Dramatic Club 4.

DOROTHY DONOVAN, "Dot" Wilson School Latin 1, Basketball Team lg Dramatic Club 3, Junior Prom Committee 3. She is cute and she is chic, She is just a little trick.

RODNEY FRAZER, "Rod" Felchville School Class Historian, Senior Play, Class Day Committee, Commencement Committee. "Rod" is one of those boys who looks bsahful and shy, but he is a good example of the old saying, "You can't judge a book by its cover." His scholastic ability is prov- en by his being class Historian and as for his dramatic ability, who will ever forget the stunning Mr. Bevans of "The Charm School"? FLORENCE FROST, "Flossie" Wilson School Glee Club 1, 2, 3g Dramatic Club. Florence has dancing ambitions, though not many of us know of it. She is the sort who tries to hide her talents, Burdett will be lucky, next year, in receiving such a good ticket-seller, b-ecause Florence certainly can sell tickets.

Thelma is very quiet when in school, but We all have our suspicions of what she does at other times.

And followed him,-to latch the gate. YEAR BOOK, 1927 EVELYN GRAY, "Ev Wilson School Glee Club 33 Basketball, Team. "Ev" must believe in the maxim, "Laugh and the world laughs with youg weep and you weep alone," as she is always cheerful and never blue.

DONALD ' ARCHER HOLDEN Bacon School Pro-Meritog Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 43 Radio Club, German Club 4. The Sheik of the school is "Don", We agree without reflection. The question We continue to ponder upon Is the keeping of that schoolgirl complex- ion. YEAR BOOK, 1927 "Art" likes the girls, though few of us know it. He aims. to be a florist and we are sure he will make a good one. Having known "Art" we have more faith in Minis- ter's sons. "So long as you are innocent, fear nothing, No one can harm you!"

Where she ever gets things to keep talking about is something beyond the scope of our imag- ination. 1 "Two brown eyes a-laughing Q Two red lips never still." i J OHN INTINARELLE Cambridge "Now this lad came to our school And with him came the looks of a Lord. Many are the hearts he has cooled In his rattling little Ford." THELMA JOHNSON Wilson School Literary Club 1, 2. Thelma is a great commercial student, and is seldom seen without her b-osom friend, Edith. She appears sedate and business-like, but we who know her know her' real sweet- ness and her fine disposition. She is a very dependable classmate and we wish her suc- cess in her business career. where."

A little powder-maybe paint, A little girl-oh, very quaint. Rumor has it she's a saint, Well! We'll tell you, she ain't. MARY KELLY Wilson School Mary is demure, dresses very neatly and has a charming smile. Mary is also very kind and has for the past year been carry- ing Helen's books to and from class for her. We wish her success in whatever she may set out to do. "Good sense, which only is the gift of heaven." HELEN KENNISTON Bacon School Salutatoriang Prize Story Contest 3. Helen stands high in her studies, as well as in the esteem of her fellow students. Al- ways cheerful and willing to impart her knowledge to anyone-that is our Helen. "From her cradle she was a scholar." V THE SASSAMON HORACE LANGLEY Felchville School Football 1, 2, 3, 43 Baseball, Dramatic Club, French Club. In some schools they have their freaks, In some athletic powers. Every school boasts of its sheik, And Horace sure is ours. ANNA LARSEN, "Wanne" Felchville School Candy Committee of Senior Play 43 Glee Club 13 Student Council 2. Winning' beauty prizes is Anna's forte, which is another proof that you "Can't judge a book by its cover." She looks demure, but Oh, My! A "Her look drew audience and attention." DOROTHY LIVINGSTON, "Dot" Bacon School Glee Club, Literary Club 23 Senior Sassa- mon 4. "Dot" is one of the most unobtrusive girls in the class, but she shows her efficiency in her studies and her work in the office. "Behind a sober Providence She hides a shining face." YEAR BOOK, 1927 GRACE MCGOWAN Wilson School Glee Club 1, 25 Dramatic Club Committee, Athletic Collector, Senior Picture Commit- tee. Grace is well liked by every member of her class, and many are the boys who would like to know her better. Yet she remains faithful to the football captain, who cap- tured her heart in her Freshman days. "A merry heart and cheerful counten- ance." LOUISE FRANCES MCGRATH, "Squeezer Lincoln School Class Willy Dramatic Club. When you're feeling blue, we recommend "Squeezer" as a sure cure remedy. She is the jolliest girl in the class, but, alas, she has one Weakness-"Pining". "A merry heart and full of fun." ELLIOT MacSWAN, ' Wilson School They say that gentlemen prefer blondes, but "Mac" prefers women. He was always one of the local sheiks, but now, since he has gone into knickers, they are all falling for him. He is a good man on the gridiron. "Love me little, love me long." Mac THE SASSAMON EDWARD MCMANUS, "Eddie" Wilson School Commencement Committee, Class Pro- phecyg Pro-Merito. V "Eddie" would give a stranger the Wrong impression. We admit, however, that he does look sedate, but-how about a famous dance hall in Framingham? "None but himself can be his parallel." WILLIAM MAHANEY, "Bill" Wilson School Football 1, Dramatic Club 2, Debating Club lg Radio Club 33 Glee Club 1, 25 Poul- try Club 3. He's just a lad from Natick, The kind- you'll like to meet, Not strong on work to study, But really-hard to beat. DANIEL MAI-IONEY, "Mike" Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4g Dramatic Club 4g French Club 4, Basketball 4. One will long remember his loud, melodi- ous voice, his rapidity in translating Latin, his keen eye for the basket, his speed and accuracy in fielding, and his remarkable feet. "Mike" is one of the best-natured, loftiest, and Well-lilted boys of the Senior Class. "He who blushes is not quite a brute." YEAR BOOK, 1927 GLADYS MARSHALL, "Glad" Bacon School Glee Club 2, 3, Literary Club 2, Decora- tion Committee Junior Prom 3. "Glad" is very neat and dainty. Her wit- ty sayings have often made us laugh. We wonder if it was because "Glad" is going to be a nurse that she walked up to the hos- pital so much this past Winter. Anyway, We wish her all the success in the world as a nurse. "Fie upon this single life--forego it!" RUTH MARSTON, "Red", Basketball 1, 2, 3, 45 Dramatic Club 3. As a basketball player, Ruth's OK-and that isn't maybe. Ruth has a peculiar fond- ness for the opposite sex and has quite a time over it. Her hair is a little "red", may- be that accounts for it. "In thy face I see The map of honour, truth and loyalty." Weenie CHARLOTTE MITCHELL Manager Girls' Basketball, Senior Play candy Committee, Dramatic Club, Junior Prom. Committee. We all know Charlotte, for she is one of the cutest and most popular girls in our class. But ever Without these charms, We would all remember her good-natured ways and her affair with our football captain. Y' THE SASSAMON ALICE MOORE, "Al" Bacon School Dramatic Club 3, 4g Literary Club 23 Dramatic Club Party 4g Senior Play Com- mittee 4g Sassamon Board 3, 43 Operetta 2g Pro-Meritog Vice-President Dramatic Club 33 Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 4, Opera 4. Alice is one of our best all-around girls, shining in the social life of the school as well as in the class-room. We will always re- member her charming voice. Alice is plan- ning to go a long way off to college, and to spend live years there. Wherever she goes, we know success and the friendship of all her classmates will attend her. CATHERINE MORAN, "Katy" Wilson School Class Treasurer 3, 45 Literary Club 2g Dramatic Club 43 Dramatic Club Party 4, Commencement Committee 43 Reception Com- mittee, Pro-Merito. If given a choice we would pick Catherine as the most friendly and likable girl in our class. She is as good-natured as she is good- looking. The boys all like our Kat.herine, and who can blame them? But she is true to only one and no need to say who, for we all know him. "I-lowe'er it be, it seems to me, 'Tis only noble to be good." MATTHEW MURPHY, "Matt" Eliot School Football, Baseballg Hockey. In the southern part of our town We have a lad of great wit, Some people think he acts like a clown, But in Helen's heart he fits. YEAR BOOK, 1927 MITCHELL MUSKAT, Mitch Wilson School French Club 3, 45 Pro-Merito. "Mitch" is indeed a very pleasant chap, Handsome, agreeable, brilliant, and seldom wears a cap, He's a great commercial student, as Mr. L. will testify, And we all hope to se him often in the fu- ture. WILLIAM NUGENT, "Bill" As captain of football for us he served And was always courageous and plucky. In a few years we hope it'll be heard That in love as well, he was lucky. ELIZABETH PARTRIDGE Betty Wilson School Pro-Meritog French Club, Junior Prom Committeeg Glee Club, Dramatic Club. Betty is a friend to everyone, and has no trouble finding friends, especially among the faculty, for she is the kind of a student the teachers adore. We all admire the girl who ranks fourth in her class, and wish her the best of success at Wellesley, next year. We know how Betty enjoys tennis, and hope that at Wellesley she will have opportunity to become an expert. "Tr-ifles make perfection, but perfection is no trifle." THE SASSAMON EDITH PIERCE, "Edie" Waltham Junior High Senior Play, Dramatic Club, Commence- ment Committeeg Senior Sassamon. "Edie" is our perfect blonde, and, of course, we all know gentlemen prefer blondes, as was evident in "The Charm School." "ls she not more than passing fair Z" ' JOHN PINE, "MuSher" Felchville School In every vessel or rig There are sailors strong and fine, But none of these have feet as big As our own Johnnie Pine. "Musher" always takes his time, But in athletics is known to shine. LAWRQENCE PLOUFFE, "Larry" Eliot School Secretary of Glee Club 4. In school he doesn't seem a ladies' man, But you'd be surprised when he's outside. He's always got them by his side. mer's day."

Louise is another member of the South Natick delegation. As a pupil she can't be beat. Her rosy cheeks and ever-present smile makes her friends with all. "Of toil unsever'd from tranquility." ANGELO JOSEPH RICH, "Hank" vvnson School l Glee Club 2, Basketball 4. "Hank" is always smiling, and loves his teachers well, And the instructors in the study rooms al- ways like to tell How he uses his study periods for everything but study, He's a tall, athletic, comely youth, whose brain is never muddy. THEODORE ROBINSON, "Teddy Eliot School "Teddy" is a quiet, unassuming, studious, and musical lad. He minds his own busi- ness, yet he is always genial and good-hu- mouredg an industrious German student, and, above all, a South Natickite. "As proper a lad as ever trod upon neat's leather." THE SASSAMON WALTER ROBINSON Bacon School Walter always has a good joke, but he can be serious, too, he's especially interested in scientiiic work. Sometimes he's quiet and bashful and sometimes he isn't. "He was a mild mannex-'cl youth." MADELENE ROGERS, "Madge" Lincoln School Junior Prom Committee 3, Cheer-leader 4g Class Basketball 1, 2, 3, Senior Play 4, Bas- ketball 1, 2, 3, 4, Commencement Commit- tee 4, Senior Sassamon. "Madge" has shown us she has many gifts, both in dramatics CSenior Playl, and as Cheer-leader. But We find that her most pleasing quality is her smile, which has won all our hearts. "Her loveliness I never knew, Until she smiled on me." ELIZABETH ROYSTER Glee Club, Pro-Merito. Elizabeth did not join our ranks until her Junior year, but since that time she has made an enviable place for herself. We all admire her taste in dress, and the teachers seem to appreciate her scholastic abilities, particular- ly in Latin. We wish her the best of luck at B. U., next year. YEAR BOOK, 1927 JOHN SANDOW, "Sandy" Hudson Grammar School 1 Student Council. John is one of our "Soldier Boys," who probably won't be able to continue his train- ing by going to Amherst next year. The company has to march from Devens, to Bos- ton, after camp. But John will probably try to use his motorcycle, then be able to go to school next year. "As merry as the clay is long." JOSEPH SHEA, "Joe" Wilson School Football 2, 3, 4, Baseball 1, 2, 3, 4, Bas- ketball 1, 2, 3, 4, Capt. Basketball 3, Glee Club, Orchestra 1, 2, 3. Now Joe is very good-natured, It's hard to make him sad- In athletics he's been featured, Really an excellent Senior lad. FREDERICK SHIPP, "Fred" Lincoln School i Valedictorian, French Club 4, Stamp Club, Student Council 1, 2, 4, Class Secretary 3, 4, Prize Essay 4, Sassamon Board 3, Edi- tor-in-Chief 4, Junior Prom Committee 3, Pro-Merito. Though Frederick seems to be girl-shy He may have one on the sly, For those who always seem to tarry Are the ones who always marry. For the most brilliant man in our class We wish success in the future as in the past. THE SASSAMON RALPH SLAMIN, "Hook" Wilson School Ralph was never very fond of studying, but he loves to stay after school for his teachers-it's just a habit. A very good-na- tured and wise youth, who doesn't pay much attention to the opposite sex. "He wears the rose of youth upon him." EVELYN SOUCKUP Lincoln School Evelyn is sometimes very quiet and is full of fun. She is going to attend Framingham Normal, next year, and in a few years we will see her teaching. We are sure she will make a good teacher and wish her luck wherever she may go. . "Of manners gentle, of affections mild." EILEEN STONE Lincoln School Eileen never got acquainted with most of us, but to her special friends she has always been true. We wish we knew more about her, for, considering her marks, we know she has talent and we know she has always been a credit to her class. We wish her the best of luck in the future. "Concealed and drooping, thy retreat- now willingly had spoken." YEAR BOOK, 1927 MILDRED SUTHERLAND, "Milly Jamaica Plain High School Pro-Merito. Mildred is another of our "Wee misses", but we will always remember her perfectly marcelled hair and dainty clothes, even if she did come from the "Woods". ELIZABETH SVVEETLAND, "Liz' Cheer-leader 45 Dramatic Club Party 43 Dramatic Club Play 43 Dramatic Club 45 Literary Club 2g Glee Club lg Debating Club 1. "Liz" was a great success as a Cheer-lead- er, as she has been in everything. So viva- cious and lively is she that she could not fail to make many friends here, all of whom wish her the best of luck in the future. AURORA TAMAGNO, "RoraH Felchville School Debating Clubg Glee Clubg Senior Playg Dramatic Clubg French Clubg Pro-Merito. Aurora's lovely brown eyes certainly go with her ability to rattle off French Qas ob- served in the Senior Playl. We think that she would make a most successful French teacher. "Those dark eyes, so clark-so deep." THE SASSAMON JOHN FRANCIS TOPHAM, "Zeke" Wilson School "Zeke" hails from Squash End. He likes dancing and keeps up his antics, even out- side the dance-hall. He has a good sense of humor, a contagious laugh and a good brain. "He was a man, take him for all in all, I shall not look upon his like again." MARY TURNER, "Infant", "Blisters" West School Senior Play Cast. Mary may be the class baby, but she sure was right there with us. We hope that when she graduates from Framingham Nor- al she will have a seat high enough, so that her classes Will be able to find her fshe was never able to End one high enough for her in High Schooli. "Good things come in small packages." BERNARD FRANCIS TRUM, "Barnie", "Trummy" Wilson School Glee Club 2, 3, 4, Dramatic Club 4g French Club 4g Senior Play Committee 43 Track Team 4. Bernie wouldn't take part in the opera be- cause he didn't want to lose a period in the Latin Class, that is merely one instance of his deep regard for his teachers and his les- sons. He is rather noisy at times and al- ways sure to Hnd the funny part of anythingg he can be brilliant, too, when he so desires. "A merrier man, Within the limit of becoming mirth, I never spent an hour's talk withal." YEAR BOOK, 1927 LUCY VITALI, "Lou" Wilson School Basketball 2, 3, 4, Dramatic Club 3, 4. Lucy was the very successful captain of the basketball team last season. She is one of tho' jolliest Seniors-that is, sometimes. We all Wish you success, 'iLou". "A correct proportion of brain and vim, And filled with fun to the brim." FRED WADE 1 w Bacon School ' Radio 25 Stamp Club 25 German 4, Pro- Merito.

ELINOR WALSH Wilson School Literary Club 2. Elinor is one of our champion noise makers and gigglers. She is very lively and an in- teresting chatter-box. She also flourishes the Walsh trade mark-a mop of thick, red hair. ' "A dancing shape, an image gay." THE SASSAMON rail , A' M I 1' file JOHN WALSH, "Red" Wilson School Radio Club 43 Football 2, 3, 45 Glee Club 2, 3g Baseball 2, 3, 4.

ROBERT WALSH, "Bob" Elliot School Senior Play, Glee Club, Orchestra. A great girl's man is Bobby Walsh, We all know Very well. He made a hit in the Senior Play With Whom we'll never tell. GRACE WELCH Ashfield Grammar School Glee Club 2, 33 Senior Play Candy Com- mittee, Dramatic Club 4. Sweet, pretty, and unassuming, Gracie was blessed with more than her share of good qualities. Quiet, it is true, but very popular with the boys. She hopes to be a teacher some day and we are sure that she will make a fine one. "Stillness of person and steadiness of fea- tuz-'es are signals of good breeding." YEAR BOOK, 1927 JEAN WHELAN New York 43 Dramatic Club 43 Dramat- Senior Play ic Club Party 4. of our liveliest classmates and to the whole school.

Jean is one is well known remember her "Where both deliberate, the loss is slight Who ever loved, that loved not at first sight ?" MARGARET WHELAN, "Smiles New York Sassamon Board 45 Dramatic Club 4, Dramatic Club Party 4. No word so well describes Margaret as the word "demure." Others perhaps as well chosen are "sweet", and "girlish". All the teachers have a high opinion of Margaret's ability as is shown by the high marks she receives, and the many responsibilities thrust upon her. ' "Oh who could blame what flatterers speak Did smiles like these reward their skill?" THOMAS WILLIAMS, Lincoln School Glee Club 1, 2, 3, 45 Orchestra 1, 2, 3, 43 French Club, Student Council 43 Pro-Merito.
