A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH
Frederic Wiilliam Kingman, Superinten-
dent of Natick Public Schools for seven
years, was born in Bridgewater, Massachu-
setts. July 27, 1868. A direct descendant
of John Alden of the Mayflower, he grew
up in a typical New England town, where
such traits as thrift, industry and high
ideals were firmly fixed. Graduating from
the VVest Bridgewater High School he
entered the Bridgewater Normal School.
During his course at Normal he stood out
among his classmates 1101: only for attend-
ance and scholarship but as a famous
pitcher. His enthusiasm for
sports has never waned and
from it has come the loyal support which
he has given to the high school athletic
After graduating from Bridgewater Nor-
mal he began his teaching career as a
principal at Hyannis and VVest Barnstable.
From 1890 to 1893 poor health took him out
of the public school field but part of that
time was spent in study, private teaching,
and outdoor work. In 1896 he became
superintendent of the Barnstable Schools.
He took his Bachelor of Arts degree at
Harvard in 1910.
In 1916 Mr. Kingman was persuaded to
take charge of the County Agricultural
School which he had been largely instru-
mental in creating. He had always been
interested in helping boys to get the right
start in life and, perhaps, nothing that he
-has ever done educationally will be more
far-reaching than the beginning he gave to
this now flourishing agricultural school.
He also served in the Massachusetts State
Legislature for three years and there gained
the respect and friendship of his fellow
In September 1922 he came to Natick.
For seven years he has labored faithfully
for the boys and girls of the town. Facing
fearlessly, compelling the
respect of the teachers and townspeople as
well as pupils, he has built up the Natick
School system. I
Esteemed and loved by all he goes out of
Natick, leaving us the kindest memories of
"the gentleman and the educator". Vlfe
regret that he is leaving, but the high
standard which he has maintained will be
a goal to us, and we all wish him that joy
which can only come from work well done.

ADDRESS OF WELCOME
It is indeed a privilege to welcome you
here this afternoon to our Class Day exer-
cises. VVe of the class of 1929 extend a
cordial welcome to all our guests and
friends by whose presence we are signally
honored, NVe take this opportunity to thank
publicly our Principal for his guidance and
successful leadership, which have been our
rare good fortune. To our esteemed teach-
ers whose loyalty a11d devotion and whose
untiring efforts have been an inspiration to
us we extend our grateful appreciation. To
the parents of the Class of 1929 we say that
this is your day: for it is your persever-
ence, your counsel, your self-sacrifice which
have made this day possible for us. On
this day of days we, the members of the
Class of 1929, thrill at the thought of all
which you have spent of effort so that we
today are able to bring to our homes and
to our parents honor and glory. You have
striven so that when we go out into the
unsheltered highway of life we shall feel
the protecting influence of your kindly
This education which we have received
is a gift from our forefathers. VVe resolve
that our rich inheritance shall not make ns
forgetful of the sacrifices of the founders
of this nation. XYe know that "our country
was conceived in liberty": and we are
determined that our American ideals.
exemplified by us, thanks to the knowledge
attained in the Natick Schools, shall bring
honor and fame to our homes, our school,
and our country.
AYALTER T. Burma.
One bright morning in the fall of the
year of 1925 about one hundred little rays
of sunshine rushed through the open doors
of this great institution. As a group we
were known as the class of 1929. As we
roamed about helplessly, all was confusion.
The Sophomores looked at us with know-
ing smiles, the juniors looked at us with
despair, and the Seniors just looked at us.
One poor Freshman thought the boiler room
was the study hall. He spent much time
before the Ere with a piece of coal in his
hand trying to warm up to algebra. Time
flew by and then in the spring of the year
while the buds were budding, we completed
our freshman year. After having said
goodbye to our friends we put our credits
into a basket and set out for.such outland-
ish spots as South Natick and Sunnyside.
Next year French attracted many of ns
though we were rather dazed the first day
when all the instruction was given in that
language. One of the members of the
class began to weep bitterly because he
thought the teacher was calling him names.
In the course of this year not only our
class but the entire school were very much
bereaved by the death of one of our beloved
classmates, Dorothy Love. VVQ miss her
companionship and she will always be in
Once more after a summer vacation we
returned to be welcomed as Juniors. XYC
certainly showed that men make the best
politicians by the election of four boys as
the omccrs of the class: VValter Burke,
Presidentg Paul Ambler, Vice-President:
Cornelius Robinson, Secretaryg and George
Steele, Treasurer. XYalter Burke and Patil
Ambler both brought fame to their Alma
Mater as debaters while Cornelius Robin-
son is best known as a writer of essays.
As an instance of what a wonderful writer
he really is, he once wrote a four-page
letter with a post-office pen. And George
Steele got gray hair trying to get dues
from the members of the class. This class
startled the scientific world by having more
explosions in the chemistry lab than any
other class in the history of the school.
L'an't you just sec Gerald Slamin shouting
after each one, "My smelling salts, please!"
and then swooning? On one occasion the
question t'What is an animal compound?"
brought forth the reply, "Horse-radish!"
The big social event of the year was the
,lnnior Prom. lt was like all other junior
l"!'0l1'l5 only the decorations were much
more attractive, the orchestra played so
that we just had to dance, and it was a
greater financial success than any before.
A triangular debate was helil between
Marlboro, Framingham, and Natick. Most
of the debaters were Juniors including Earl
Douglas, XValter Burke, and Paul Ambler
who won the prize for the best individual
speaking at Framingham.
Finally we became Seniors! Paul Ambler
having deserted us for Huntington, Joseph
Wignot was elected as Vice-President. As
usual the Senior Class presented a play. lVe
chose Booth Tarkington's highly-amusing
comedy. "Seventeen," For three days
before the play hundreds of people were
pouring into Natick to witness this great
production. So large were the crowds that
the Boston Middlesex was forced to make
use of both cars. The eventful night came
and the audience was a riot of color due to
the contrasting colors of the ushers' even-
ing dresses. Besides all the fun of putting
on the play we profited to the extent of
In .Xpril our debaters had a chance to
show their skill again. This year Norwood
joined the League. The two Burkes and
Cornelius Robinson won the preliminary
debate from Norwood. XYalter Burke was
selected as the best individual speaker.
Framingham invited the winning teams to
have the final debate there. Again our
team won, bringing home the silver loving-
cup, offered this year for the first time.
Here we leave the class of 1929 since
only prophets can foresee what they will
accomplish in the years to come. One fact
is sure that the memory of our Alma Mater
will ever linger with us.
The bright and lovely month of june
Seems almost sad today,
For many are the hearts that ache
VVith thoughts of going away.
Our future is before us now.
Young and strong we start
To make our lives the very best,
Our goal the highest mark.
Our life is like a stepping stone
VVhich reaches to the skyg
It gives a chance to all of us
Now leaving Natick High.
If we should reach that shining goal
VVhich looms so high at times.
VVe must thank God, and all our friends

W. KANE: Is it really possible that I am
speaking with, and seeing by television,
my old classmate, Helen LaCrosse of '29?
H. LACROssI-:: Yes, this is Helen LaCrosse
of '29, but I should scarcely have known
you, you have grown so stately and digni-
fied in the past ten years.
VV. KANE: Kidding as usual, Helen. I
called you up about the party. i
H. LACROSSE! Yes, I am sorry I was un-
able to attend but I was out of town.
XY. K.-WE: I was expecting you, but since
you didn't attend, I'll give you the
details. Carl Angelo came, you remem-
H. L.-XCROSSEZ Yes, of course, didn't he
play in the High School Orchestra and
the Big Six?
VV. KANE: Yes, that is where he got his
early practice. He was telling me of his
wonderful success in Europe with his
violin. and told me to look for the account
of it in this evening's paper.
H. l..vxCRossE: Have you read that article
about Helen Amendola yet? You remem-
ber she always was a wonderful pianist
back at high school. I just read that
Helen was studying music in Italy. It
said she was making wonderful progress.
It seems we had quite a few musicians
in our graduating class.
XY. KANE: I guess they weren't all musi-
cians because I was talking with Victor
Balzarini a few days ago, and he was
telling me of his success as a playwright
for the Bellofatto and Bronkie Company
who are running stage plays on Broad-
way. Most of their plays are Shakes-
pearian, and their two leading players are
Robert Brown, who plays the heavies, and
Vlialter Burke who takes part in most of
the operas. I heard he was a howling
H. LACROSSE: Yes. didn't Anna Bardel-
lini play Ophelia, opposite Robert Brown
in "Hamlet" a few weeks ago?
NV. KANE: I mustn't forget the party that
I was telling you about. I gave it in
honor of my twenty-seventh birthday. I
wanted all my friends to be there, so I
had an article put in the paper inviting
all the students of the class of '29 to
H. LACROSSE: Oh! I'm so sorry I couldn't
get there. Did many of our classmates
VV. KAN!-3: Yes, there were a number of
them. Eight o'clock came around, as it
usually does, and who came in the door
first but Remolly Carnaroli, with a guitar
under his arm that would do justice to
any Hawaiian. VVhen I asked him if he
could play, he looked rather peeved, and
asked me if I hadn't heard him broad-
cast Over station N. H. S. I apologized
and everything was going along smoothly,
when the bell rang, and in walked Earl
Douglas, XValter Chamberlain, Francis
Driscoll, Harold Fairbanks, and Arthur
Fahey. It seemed that we were in for a
loud time: all I saw was instruments. I

was delighted to hear that Arthur Fahey
was an accomplished trombonist, and
thought that he would improve much
more just as soon as his arms grew a bit
longer. Francis Driscoll had a green
jew's harp. I told him I was glad to hear
he could play, but his color scheme of red
hair and green wasn't worth much. The
party almost stopped there, but I said I
was only fooling. XValter Chamberlain
wasn't carrying anything, and when I
asked the reason he told me'he had
started a greenhouse up at Sunnyside.
Earl Douglas didn't have much to say. -I
thought he was sick or something, so
when I inquired he told me no, that he
was a preacher in one of the little church-
es over in Ashland. Harold Fairbanks
was empty-handed also, so I asked him
what the trouble was. I-Ie told me he
was an accomplished pianist, but couldn't
bring the piano. These were all that
came to the party but we had a good time.
you heard about Car-
H. LACROSSE: Have

XY. KANE: Yes, Caroline was always light
on her feet. Three months before my
party I started my Second tour of the
United States as a salesman for the firm
I was working for. On my trip I got as
far as New York when I met James Fitz-
gerald. He was the proprietor of a
beauty shop. The night I was in the city
I took in one of the latest musical come-
dies on Broadway, where the two Leland
sisters, Harriet and Arline, came on the
stage and did their Specialty number
entitled "jazz and More Jazz".
H. LACROSSE: My goodness.
XY. KAXE: Yes. but that wasn't the only
surprise. IYhen the curtain went up
Marguerite LeC1air walked on the stage
ancldid a very interesting act of mental
telepathy. After I left the show, I saw
a large sign which read "Goodwin and
Guiteau's History Books".
LACROSSE: You remember Dorothy
Bishop and Madeline Brown?
NV. KANE: They chummed together at
school. didn't they?
LACROSSE: Yes. Now Dorothy Bishop
is a physical instructor in Sherborn Prep,
while Madeline Brown is on an Antartic
expedition searching for polar bears. for
the benefit of starving refugees in Rus-
sia. She furnishes the heat on the
expedition with her red hair.
W. KANE: I got a letter from Bob Carey
the other day, telling me of his Success
as a professional track man.
H. LACROSSE: Virginia Clahane is down
in South America, a private secretary for
some large concern. Virginia always
liked that sort of work and was even will-
ing to learn Spanish in order to carry on
her efficient desires.
WL KANE: I'm not surprisedg Virginia
was a good student in School. I suppose
you heard of Patrick Grady's success in
the ring. On my business trip my next
stop was Chicago. I no Sooner got there
than I saw all over the town glaring
posters "Lewis Grassey, the Indian Rub-
ber Man-can tie himself in any kind of
a knot." I guess his practice as a trom-
bonist in the-High School Orchestra gave
him his early training.
H. LACROSSE: Yes, I guess that's right.
Margaret Connolly is teaching French in
a very exclusive school near Paris.
. KANE: My next orders were to go to
Texas and see what was holding up the
beef trade. I got there and was making
a round of the ranches when XValter
Mahaney came galloping by on a plough
horse and in a cowboy outfit. Wialter
told me he was in the beef business. I
was quite taken backg I thought surely
he would be in the "talkies".
LACROSSE: You didn't happen to see
Grace Cowee and Marjorie Schneider
while you were there, did you?
IV. KANE: No, I didn't.

both used to be interested in cars, and
they seemed to know all about them. Oh.
yesf Cert Dawborn has a riding school
on her estate in Texas, too. I guess she
is in partnership with Loretta Dumas.
XY. KANE: From Texas I went to San
Francisco to the "VVorld's Fair". Such
an aggregation of classmates I never
expected to see, but it was not impossible
because all the firms of the world were
represented. On my way in I met
Catherine Merino and Marie O'ConneIl
giving demonstrations of washing ma-
chines. In the next booth I met Verna
Merritt and Lucretia Berry. Both girls
were from the same company demon-
strating jam and jellies. No advertising
matter was necessary because, from the
looks of the girls' faces it was easily dis-
cernible that the jams and jellies were
H. l,.xCRossE: I heard that Hope Dimock
was there. You know she is teaching
XY. Kami: About three booths down from
Babe and Verna was a beauty shop. and
posing on the stage was Thomas Kelly.
They were using his name for their
rouge: if I remember correctly the name
was "Flaming Youth". On the other side

of the arena, all by himself, was
so I asked him what the trouble was. He
said he was selling raccoon coats. that a
baseball game was going on in the next
city. and that there wasn't a college boy
around. In the next booth was Harold
Linane. Harold is also a salesman. He
was selling wall paper, and whitewash
brushes. He told me he
good because he was able to keep the
over-head down by saving on the step-
ladders. On the way out I met Ruth
McCarrick and May Morrissey selling
typewriters. The girls were doing a
rushing business and hardly had time to
speak to me.
L.ixCRossr1: Anna Fitzgerald is a sten-
ographer for some large concern in Fram-
ingham. I was talking to her about a
week ago and she told me a lot about
some of our classmates. She told me that
Dorothy Harrington and Helen Holbrook
had positions with her so they see quite
a little of each other. I also heard that
Evelyn Harvie and Margaret Hogan were
on a hunting trip together. They have a
large crowd of followers including Mar-
guerite Killeen, Helen McEvoy, and
Maybelle Morrill. They wanted to dis-
cover something new so they are looking
for an East and W'est Pole instead of a
North and South. Mary Horan used to
be a school teacher. They say she taught
at N. H. S., but I guess she has settled
down now. Say, by the way, I was read-
ing about Bunnie Mann in the paper the
other day. You know how wonderfully
she sang at the operetta when we were
VV. KANE: How could I forget Bunny's
l.ACRossl5: VVell, she is singing with
the Metropolitan Opera Co. now. Doro-
thy Meek, like Helen Amendola, has also
been studying music abroad. 'She went
to the New England Conservatory of
Music first, and is expected to arrive
home shortly to give her first concert.
Oh yes! before I forget I must tell you
about Annah Maroney. just recently she
was given charge of a hospital boat on
the Charles River. :Xnnah makes a won-
derful nurseg it's rumored that the doc-
tors think so, anyway. And Dorothy
Murphy is her chief assistant.
XV. KANE: I'll begin to scold you, Helen,
if you keep interrupting me about my
trip. I left the fair and went on my way
to California. As the train stopped in a
little town I ran into a good little restaur-
ant to get a bit to eat. There to my
great delight I saw Julia Branagan and
Celeste Beirne. The girls had started for
Hollywood but had changed their minds
and gone into a more substantial business.
I finally arrived at Hollywood, and went
into a hotel. XYhen I got inside a little
fellow in a bellhop suit came up to me.
for my luggage: it was Francis Mahaney.
He brought me over to meet Robert
McKechnie, and Francis McNichols. We
shook hands all around, and they told me
the three of them were running the hotel.
That was all the good it did meg I had
to pay my bill.
Of course I had to take in the moving
picture studios, and was surprised to find
that George Steele was the only Natick
boy trying to get a position. He said he
had only been trying for six months, and
that there were only four thousand ahead
of him. I wished him luck and knew he
would be successful he was so persistent.
I started my long journey back home.
and nothing of importance happened until
I reached Chicago again. As before, there
were posters all over the city advertising
Mosman Sz Reagan's mammouth circus.
As two old classmates were running it I
had to take it in. The first person I saw
that I recognized was Norman Peoples.
"Sam" was at the head of the programme
As the circus went on an announcer
told us that the Robinson brothers, Cor-
nelius and LeBaron, two slack-wire
artists, would amuse us next. They cer-
tainly were good. I never knew Cor-
nelius was fiat-footed, but LeBaron
always had a good line.
The wild West Show was next and the
two leaders were Carl Rogers and Joseph
VVignot. The circus was nearly over
when some man dressed as a clown came
into the arena. When he got near enough
for me to get a good look, I found to my
surprise that it was Roy Scott.
As I was leaving the circus, I stopped
at the menagerie and saw VVinston Rowe
attending a sick camel. I went right over
and asked him why he hadn't used his
knowledge to a better advantage, but he
said he was always fond of animals.
H. LrxCRossE: Speaking about the XVest
I've just got to tell you about Josephine
Naphen. Josephine is a teacher out there.
Now that I am talking again I'm going
to tell you some more. Of course you
remember that Frances Nims was mar-
ried the Tuesday before graduation, and
finds married life very enjoyable.
I see that Dolly Palmore has been
made head instructor of Room 33. I sup-
pose you have heard about Alice Par-
menter's position over at the ,Iunior High
School, as secretary.
VV. KANE: I'm off again on my trip. I
had to leave Chicago that night, and on
my way to New York the train passed a
little gasoline station. In the yard, stand-
ing beneath a Ford, changing the oil, was

arrival I had to go directly to the bank.
I walked up to the cashier's window and
found as I had expected, Paul Roberts.
We had a lengthy conversation as we
usually do. I congratulated "Paulie" on
his success. but couldn't help saying I
always thought he would end up behind
H. LACROSSE: Speaking about New York
reminds me that Barbara Partridge, after
finishing her college career, secured a
position teaching Latin at Cornell Uni-
versity. You probably know that Marion
Raymond used to drive her car so much
that Butler's Motor Co. offered her a
position asf head saleswoman, She
accepted and has been there ever since.
Dorothy Roach, I learned, became a
great baseball player. She could have
had a try-out with Sherborn town team
if she had so desired.

Parents, Teachers. and Other Friends:
It is a great privilege as well as a sin-
cere pleasure to welcome you to our Com-
mencement exercises. And a Commence-
ment it is indeed. for Natick High gives to
America a gift of one hundred and four
boys and girls carefully trained by teachers
whose intellect has been and always will be
an inspiration to us.
Yet. we have plenty to learn. Just the
other day I heard a good one. It seems
that a student asked Professor Monroe oi
Harvard University what he thought the
twentieth amendment would be. The pro-
fessor meditated for a moment and then
replied, "I think that the twentieth amend-
ment will deal with song."
"Song" asked the student, "why do you
think that the twentieth amendment to the
Constitution of the United States will deal
"XYell," said the professor, "it's this way.
The eighteenth amendment has to do with
wine: the nineteenth amendment has to do
with women: and so the twentieth amend-
ment will have to do with song l"
However, as long as no songs have been
suggested, I shall discuss a question which
has been proposed as the twentieth amend-
ment to the Constitution of the United
States. It is a subject which vitally con-
cerns the United States, Massachusetts, and
the people and schools of the town of
Natick. That subject is the proposed
Federal Department of Education.
To many people the subject is a new one
as there 'has been little demand for the pro-
posed amendment. It has been suggested by
certain groups who hope to make education
a Federal functoin.
Before discussing the proposed bill let us
First look at the provisions of this Federal
Department of Education bill. First of all,
the Bureau of Education is to be trans-
ferred to a Department of Education, with
a Secretary in the President's cabinet.
This department would have the power to
devise methods of organization, adminis-
tration, and maintenance of schools, and
plans of improving methods of teaching and
of developing curricula and
study in the schools, and any other work
that the Secretary of Education might wish
So much for the provisions of the bill.
Now, let us look at some of the main objec-
tions to the bill. First of all the bill goes
directly against the explicit provisions of
the Constitution of the United States which
leaves the control of the schools in the hand
of the several states. In this way, the bill
opposes Ex-President Coolidge's statement
that the Federal Government should con-
fine itself strictly to its constitutional func-
tions. President Hoover has announced
his opposition to the bill through the recent
statement of the Secretary of the Interior,
Mr. XYilbur. This indicates the opposition
to it as a national question.
But as we consider the proposed Federal
Department of Education, we must consider
also its effect on the town of Natick. Today,
all our books and courses of study are
selected by the local authorities who are
intimately concerned with our peculiar
needs. On the other hand. with centralizefl
control, our schools could be put into a
straight-jacket by a certain group of bur-
eaucrats down at VVashington who would
know very little, if anything. about the
conditions in the town of Natick.
And as a final point, I consider the pro-
posed bill as an outright injustice to the
good people of Natick. Each year at town
meeting you appropriate thousands of dol-
lars for your schools. Some would have
the Federal Government control education.
It could then control your own money
which you pay in taxes. Such control is
nothing short of the creeping paralysis of
In conclusion, I appeal to the liberty-
loving parents of this town. Today text
books and courses are selected by the care-
ful choice of the school instructors. To-
morrow both teacher and method may be-
come dependent upon political forces at
VVashington. Parents, how would you like
to have Federal power control your child's
education from the first grade until gradua-
tion? Are you going to give greedy politi-
cians an opportunity to control stock in the
Natick Schools? Verily if one were cast-
ing about for a swift and certain means to
destroy American freedom it seems no
more adequate machinery of destruction
could be conceived than a school system
guided by autocratic principles.
So, we have seen, that the bill, if it
became a law, would pave the way to
paternal imperialism in education. This
is absolutely contrary to our philosophy of
government and antagonistic to our princi-
ples of freedom and self-government. On
this ground we must oppose any and all
such attempts to abrogate states' rights.
And so, in closing this greeting, let :is
always bear in mind the doctrine of self-
help-that the things we get for ourselves
are the best: that sturdily striving to care
for ourselves builds real character and .true
XVALTER T. BURKE.
THE PROBLEM OF LEISURE
llecanse of the modern revolution in the
field of industry. the people of this country
are faced with a very serious and definite
problem, the problem of "what will we do
with our leisure time?" Leisure, once the
property of few, has become the property of
many. NYill this leisure, in the hands of
these people, become a menace? This ques-
tion creates a problem which is far-reach-
ing and commanding of everyone's atten-
Not so long ago America was admitted
to be a land of labor-of strenuous. contin-
ued, and hurried endeavor. Can we still
say that today? "Overnight," so to speak,
America has become the land of leisure.
All this universal leisure has come to us as
the result of the great mechanical changes.
Due to the increase in production because
of these changes man has had to work less
and hence has had an abundance of leisure
time. Robots are contributing to this leis-
ure. All varieties are being manufactured
by the thousands, and are being used for
practically all sorts of small merchandise.
An article in a recent number of the Forbes
magazine informs us that they are now sell-
ing gasoline through the Robot. Harry XV.
Alexander, a pioneer in the Robot field,
visualizes the day when we will have no
clerks in the stores: we will then obtain
everything through these mechanical sales-
men. In New York it is not uncommon in
walking down Broadway on a cool summer
day, to see a Robot ready to mix and pour
a drink while you wait.
Some call this the machine ageg others
the leisure age: it is both. Since this rev-
olution has given us a new and undreamed
of leisure, it has created one of the most
complicated problems of the twentieth cen-
It is very clear that leisure in the hands
of our people will be one of two things: a
value or a menace. Leisure time can be of
value in the promotion of happiness. How-
ever leisure is becoming a menace to our
country because of its abuse by many.
Socially it is making for ease, luxury, and
moral degeneration. Has man, with his
leisure time, dashed wildly to libraries,
evening schools, art museums, or the grassy
banks of murmuring brooks? Not so as to
obstruct any traFFic! It is probable that the
income of the poolrooms and dime-shows
has increased. Thus we see how leisure
time can be abused and so become a men-
The effect of leisure time on the morals
of our country is nothing that we can be
over-proud of. If ease, luxury, and leisure
are abused they make for immorality. Im-
morality follows lack of repression and un-
restricted conduct. It turns ns into vice
and wrong rather than into following the
ideals of right. It was thus that great Rome
fell. Should not America take heed?
If the health of our country is menaced,
leisure is abused. A good runner trains to
keep his body in the "pink of condition."
Can we keep our bodies in condition to face
life's tests, with so much ease and luxury
in our midst? VVe cannot. We must de-
vise ways of spending our newly acquired
leisure time so as to afford us the health
we are certain to lose because of the mod-
ern conveniences to which we are subject.
A story is told of a japanese scholar who
was visiting our country, and while being
shown the wonders of New York'City, was
taken to the subway. VVith his guide he
boarded a local train, and when they
reached Fourteenth Street he was hurried
off this local to take an express. "XVhy did
we do that?" inquired the Japanese. "To
save five minutes," was the answer. He
looked puzzled for a moment, and then
asked, "And what shall we do with the tive
minutes?" This is the question of the pres-
ent age. We are all the time working for
time and labor-saving devices which will
give us more leisure. After we have ob-
tained this lesiure, what will we do with
If you were going to become a baseball
player you would begin training for itg you
would begin practicing all the essentials
that make up the ball player. Here we are
faced with the problem of "what to do with
our leisure time." It seems to me that the
plausible way of working out this problem,
is by doing just that: namely, training
yourself for it. The trouble with us today
is that we expect a person to spend years
before he becomes proficient in business or
the professions: in leisure, without any
previous training as to the way we shall
conduct ourselves, a person is expected to be
fully competent to direct his activities.
This theory seems to be all wrong. Vile
I do not hesitate to say that the inclusion
of both education and religion in our lives
is the foundation upon which we can build
our conduct in leisure. Education and re-
ligion are the two fundamental necessities
for the right use of leisure. They are cs-
sential if we are to succeed in solving this
problem of "what to do in our leisure time."
VVhat will education do for us? It will
give us an understanding of the lives of
of previous generations, and knowledge of
the material world,
VVhat will religion do for us? Its bene-
fits are a thousand-fold, and too numerous
to mention here. The benefit we will men-
tion as directly infiuencing this subject is
the fact that religion makes for ideals in a
man, for his realization of right and wrong.
VVith leisure this is most important, because
man must have the ability to distinguish
between right and wrong. If he can do this
then the leisure time problem is solved.
Therefore it would seem that the solution
of this leisure problem is a double one. An
age-old saying tells us that "the proof of
the pudding is in the eating." Likewise
"the proof of the value of leisure time will
be determined by its use." Leisure is ours
whether we want it or not and it is for us
to decide whether it will be a good thing or
the doom of this and all future generations.
LEBARON O. RoBiNsoN.
PERSEVERANCE IS ESSENTIAL TO
Everyone has probably heard, at some
time or other, the song: "If at first you
don't succeed. try, try again." The song is
still an old standby. XYhen one is discour-
aged or blue, the humming of that refrain
never fails to give new enthusiasm and
courage. For, when all is said and done,
success in any field is simply a matter of
trying and trying again.
Often, it is not that we lack ability but
that we lack perseverance. Take for ex-
ample the sales field. Every year hundreds
of salesmen drop from the ranks. They
entered the profession with hopes running
high, did not immediately meet success,
grew discouraged, and failed to apply the
rule of success, "try again." Men are fail-
ing in all fields simply because they do not
apply this rule of success.
To succeed in any undertaking one must
keep going doggedly, never admitting de-
feat. For instance, the successful inventor
must meet all sorts of obstacles and diffi-
culties before he Hnally perfects his in-
vention. The ambitious author has his
stories refused time and time again before
he finally wins his way to fame. In every
walk of life the men who never admit de-
feat, but who try again and again are the
men who finally meet real success. "I
couldnt" has never accomplished anything.
"I will try again," has wrought wonders.
Failures and hard knocks are the basis
of real success. Most final successes are
built on foundation stones of past failures.
One who meets adverse conditions grows
strong and corrects his faults, while one
who meets constant success is blinded to his
defects. To be a real success one must go
thru this school of hard knocks, He may
not realize it, but while he is receiving
this education, he is growing into the sort
of a man that will be a real, lasting suc-
cess. Success is a queer thing. If it comes
easily, we never hold it high. If it comes
bard. it is a priceless prize.
Viie never know how close we are to suc-
cess when we give up. Sometimes we
stand just at the border. .X little more ef-
fort and we would have been across. The
factor which gets us across that narrow
border line is more determination, the old
story, "try again."
Yery few achievements are won in a first
effort. There is no way of telling, or
rather of lindiug out, how many of the
world's great victories have been won by
the application of the thought expressed in
those two words "try again."
Robert Peary reached the North Pole.
the prize of three centuries, his dream
and goal for twenty years, only after seven
previous failures, covering a period of
twenty years. He won where others failed
by his persistent effort, by his indomitable
will. liach failure taught Peary something
which made his final success possible.
'l'hon1as Edison's success is due to his
boundless perseverance. He spent ten years
working on his storage battery, making
fifty thousand experiments before he was
satisfied with it. He worked thirty-four
years perfecting the moving picture ma-
chine. .-Xfter such men as Farmer, Draper,
Henry, Morse, and Maxim had given up,
lidison took up the task of perfecting an
electric light. He spent thirteen months of
unwearied experimentation in an effort to
find a suitable filament for it. If Edison
had given up at the end of the twelfth
month we would probably still be using
candles and oil for lights, but he didn'tg he
persevered until at last success crowned his
"Bobby" jones started his golf career in
1915. During the following seven years he
played in eleven national championships,
amateur and open. and still was outside.
Ile was considered a great golfer who
couldn't win. In 1923. due to his "try
again" spirit. he won his first national
championship at Inwood. Instead of drop-
ping out after receiving one hard knock
after another, he corrected his faults and
defects. tried again and again, and won.
Recently, in one of his magazine articles,
Charles Clark said, "The trouble with most
of Us is that we think we are the only ones
who suffer defeat." If we would only re-
call these words when the horizon looks
darkest. when prospects are grouchiest.
when failure seems so close. we would think
twice before giving up. Then, if we would
go still farther, and recall the discouraging
exieriences that all great men have had to
go thru before they met success. we would
recover our courage, our determination and
try again and again, until our efforts were
finally crowned by success.

THE MEANING OF EDUCATION

there have been many changes in the lives
of men. Among the greatest is the increas-

Not only has the demand increased but also
the opportunities have increased. The ideas
of education itself have undergone a com-
plete change likewise. In times past educa-
tion meant only school training but now
education is believed to begin at birth and
to end only at death.
School training is by no means an end
to education: it is only the beginning. The
most important thing that schools teach is
the ability to read understandingly. XN'ith
this ability one can teach himself, as much
of our information is obtained from books.
Schools prepare a person for success. They
are the foundation of one's life work. Suc-
cess in business depends on the ability of a
man to adapt the information that he has
acquired in schools to the type of work
that he is doing.
In these days with the labor-saving
devices and shorter working days education
means more than training for life work.
One of the greatest problems before the
country today is to teach the youth the
proper use of leisure time. If used in the
right way leisure time can be made very
profitable: in fact a great part of life's
education is gained by utilizing spare
Traveling is one of the most delightful
means of education. Its real value lies in
enabling us to learn the customs and ways
of living of the people of other nations. A
better acquaintance with these people helps
us to have friendlier feeling toward them.
Appreciation of the right kind of music
and art is a part of one's education. If
people would save the money that they use
PAGE FORTY ONE
to go to movies that are not worth the while
and go to one symphony concert or one
opera they would learn to appreciate things
that are really beautiful.
Of what use is education to a man if he
has failed to develop a good character?
One way of training the character is to
have an ideal and try to live up to it. Con-
duct should be improved as we are forming
either good or bad habits, and habits lead
to the making of character.
It is only by living up to the best that
is in us every clay that we can hope to
become of use to the world.
That is what we of the class of '29 have
been discovering during our four years at
Natick High School.
Now, dear classmates. the time has come
for us to part, to leave behind the pleasant
memories of our school days. Courageously
and hopefully we will go forward to our
various duties. As we have striven to do
our best in the past, let us strive to do
even better in the future and to carry with
us the inspirations that we have received in
our school days. Classmates, farewell!
Teachers. schoolmates, and friends-to :ill
we bid farewell!
"May the Lord watch between thee and
me while we are absent FCEQ-rg another."

THE SCIENTIFHC SPIRIT
From the time a lad takes apart an old
alarm clock, destroys his toys or things more
valuable than toys, he is led by a mysteri-
ous impulse which is brought about almost
wholly by curiosity. The impulse is the
first indication of the scientitic spirit. But
if the toy has been broken, the boy's curi-
osity oppressed, and the toy is thrown away
then there is no want of knowledge in the
lad, only curiosity. But if it is not thrown
away, if the boy tries to make something
out of it, to improve upon it, then the
scientihc spirit is there.
Since the character, if only a boy, took
an interest in a piece of machinery at such
an early age, it would seem that the scienti-
fic spirit starts in the home. Here it can
be either fully developed or it can be
snuffed out completely.
Xlihen parents scold, whip, and even send
their sons from home just because they
show an inclination to dream, hour after
hour, this abusive treatment eventually
wipes out any trace of a scientihc spirit.
Dreaming is not wrong if you dare, ac-
cording to an article in a psychology maga-
zine, It says in part: "Columbus dreamed
of a new route to India: dared the 'dark
.-Xtlanticf and, though he did not find out
what he was after, he discovered something
greater than his dream. Alexander dreamed
dreams of empire, and died lamenting that
there was a handful of devoted followers.
dared and added Mexico to the already
swollen dominions of that ungrateful mon-
arch, Charles Y. Xtashington and the pa-
triots clared the might of England, and a
new nation was born. Raphael Leonardo,
Botticelli, Gainsborough, and Yelaszeuz
dared to conceive and, to execute. and en-
riched the world with master paintings.
The world's history has been made by
men who dreamed great dreams and dared
to achieve them. Nothing worth while,
either for good or for evil has ever been
accomplished by anyone who did not dream,
dare, do, and if need be, die, to live his
dreams. To dream and to dare-this is the
secret of success."
And so it can be seen that the home is
often destructive as far as the development
of the scientihc spirit is concerned. How-
ever the right kind of a school is a great
force in developing the intelligence in some
particular line. Modern schools have
courses of study in every art.
XN'hatever the child's mind leans to, the
school can develop. An authority on indus-
trial geography says:
"The German universities, scientific
schools, and industrial laboratories kept
Germany in the forefront of scientific dis-

covery, and of application of science to :ill
forinn of industry."
'I'he following of a vocation is the best
thing in life. .RX jack-of-all-trades always
.Xs Milliamson says. "Vocational training
is one of the most significant developments
in modern education. This type of educa-
tion is designed to train the young person
to earn a good living in the branch of work
for which he seems best fitted. Some of the
supporters of vocational training believe
that this specialized form of training ought
to be commenced early in life." H
lt can be seen, then, that education plays
a great part in the development of the
Something ought to be done for scientists
who strive uselessly to perfect something,
or to establish some fact. These men are
brave, as brave as any soldier, for death
comes to scientists in horrible forms. Doc-
tor scientists who battled fever in the south
made the Panama Canal possible. Brave
explorers of the North and South Poles
added much to our knowledge of the Artic
regions. Heroes who have perfected safety
devices for all forms of machinery, have
saved thousands of human lives. And,
every one of them, from the child with the
alarm clock to one like Edison, have all
been led by the scientific spirit.
The scientific spirit is a grace of God, a
gift given to selected ones in order that the
world may advance even a slight degree.
In history man has advanced greatly, and
the scientific spirit was a great factor in
the development of civilization.

was presented, Thursday and Friday even-

was the best Senior play in years.

On XYednesday. October 10, the students
of Natick High elected a S.xss.xMoN Board
for the year 1928-1929. Immediately upon
coming into otiice a meeting of the Board
was called and plans for the S.xss.xMoN
during the Year were discussed.
A feature change during the administra-
tion of this year's Board has been the
change from a magazine to a newspaper.
This paper has come out almost three times
as often as did the magazine and the Senior
Book is included in the subscription as
before. This change was proposed by a
member of the Board, and voted upon by
the entire student body.
Immediately after receiving an affirma-
tive vote to having a newspaper, work on
the nrst issue begun. This first paper came
out November 9, and was enthusiastically
received by all.
Each following issue, according to the
many subscribers, "was better and better."
The change seems to be a big improvement
for Natick High School. A fact worthy
of mention is that along with these changes
and improvements, the subscription rate has
been lowered from one dollar to seventy-

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
In the days of our forefathers self-
govcrnment was one of the greatest causes
of the success of the United States. So,
today, self-government in schools has been
one of the contributing factors of the suc-
cess of the educational department of this
'XYith the introduction of many new plans
at Natick High a Student Council was
started in the fall of 1927. This council
was formed for the purpose of solving
problems which involved both teachers and
After a successful start the reins of the
council were taken up in the fall of 1928
by twenty-four new members-two repre-
sentatives from each room elected by popu-
lar vote. The first meeting was devoted to
the election of officers and to a general
talk by the genial faculty advisor, Mr.
Gardner. At later meetings the council
decided to carry out the direction of traffic
in the corridors and to alleviate the finan-
cial condition of the Natick High School
Athletic Association by securing the mem-
bership of all the students of the high
The council also adopted many new and
helpful plans in the interest of the whole
school. One of these was a better system
for passing to the assembly hall. The
council members also assumed the work of
selling lunch checks, cleaning the pencil
sharpeners, and doing many other odd jobs.
:Xnother important work of the council was
the adoption of a constitution. But the
greatest and most democratic move taken
by the council this year was the decision to
have the S.-xss.n1oN Board elected by popu-
Wlith these very important steps taken
for the advancement of student self-govern-
ment, the council for the years 1928-1929
has more than done its share-in the promo-
tion of government "of the students, by the
students, and for the students."
The Glee Club was organized early this
year with Miss Eldridge as club faculty
advisor. :Xt the opening meeting oliicers
were elected. It was decided to have
meetings every Monday and Tuesday morn-
