Miss Marie Nelson, now Mrs.. H. Corcoran Fisher, of Washington, D. C., was the editor, assisted by Robert Jordan and Raymond Cooper. The other members of the Board were: Class Editors: Chester Heinlein, 1912: Alice Burns fMrs. John Stritch of Warej, 1913: E. Payson Travis, 1914: James R. Bell, 1915. Athletic Editor: James W. Doon, 1913. Art Editor: Dorothy Trippe CMrs. Ray McKechnie of Dayton, Ohiol, 1913. Business Manager: Walter Dempsey, 1913. Associate: Dyke Quackenbush, 1914. The paper was enthusiastically received by the student body, for it had been several years since a school paper had been published. The earlier paper had been called "The Laurel". The new paper received its name from John Sassamon, one of John Eliot's praying Indians. This name was submitted by Miss Katherine Nelson and was chosen by the student body in a contest. From 1912 to 1928 the paper was published four times each year. Then it was voted to publish a news- paper eight times a year and a senior magazine, or Year Book, in June. It is our hope that The Sassamon may enjoy many more years of successful prosperity and ever succeed in its purpose to keep the student body and their friends in close touch with all school activities. Brenton Gordon, Irene Cartier, Editors PAGE ONE TH E SASSAMCDINI H9732 Photo by Bachra MISS MABEL I. DYER TIM! E SASQSAMCDN H9732 Behinatiun WE, the Senior Class of 1932, lovingly dedicate this Year Book to Miss Mabel I. Dyer and Miss Malvina M. Brown. Miss Dyer has been a teacher of French in our High School for the past thirty-five years, and for the past seven years Head of the Modern Language Department. While we regret she has chosen to leave our alma mater, we wish her every happiness in the years to come. Those who come after us will miss her kindly smile and ready wit. Always kind, cheerful, and helpful, she has endeared herself to all who have known her. In her we have found a true friend, an understanding adviser, an ever-willing and ready helper in all we have wished or hoped to achieve. Miss Brown, a teacher of English in Natick High School, from 1918 to 1931, is well known to many High School and Grammar School graduates, for she was principal of the Mary Gilson School, from 1913 to 1916, and a teacher of Grade Nine, at the Wilson School, from 1916 to 1918. We regret Miss Brown was unable to be with us our final year, but we know her guiding spirit has influenced all of us.

To our parents, at least, we are the same bright-faced boys and girls they started off to school over twelve years ago. In the truth, these twelve years have brought no great hardships to us. We have developed both physically and mentally and we are hoping to be a credit to those who have helped us on. It is now our turn to take up the bur- dens which our parents have formerly borne without our help. The world is beset by a universal catastrophe, just now, and a universal catastrophe is apt to develop into an individual problem. Younger brothers and sisters of ours may have to forego these opportunities for edu- cation which it has been our privilege to enjoy, and which we have gratefully accepted. The strength of our elders is being sorely taxedg we must come through, and come through nobly to their rescue. We have an education, let us use it-- dedicate it to keep intact these homes from which we come and which to us are sacred. And when the time comes, and we know that it will come ere many years, lct us try to establish homes of our own as fine as those which have sheltered us so unselfishly, I think l can say that is all the reward our parents will ask of us. l'Af2l'l SIX Our teachers have in these school years devoted their lives to molding Americans with strong characters and with fine ideals for the future welfare of our country. Knowing this, let us exemplify, as time goes on, what our parents and teachers have dreamed for us, men whose word is as good as their bond and women whose ideals shall help to make nobler and bet- tcr the community in which they live. Russell Reid Hardigan, President, Class of 1932 Elisa HI TORY, Once in a while one likes to forget the routine of the day, and pause for a few happy moments to live in the memories of the past, musing over souvenirs and form- ing connecting links until a long chain is built from them, a beautiful rosary of memories-memories of happy High School days. A list of names-all familiar to me, but where--how,-Oh! Iremember, It came from a classroom door the first day we, the class of '32, started exploring our new quarters. These lists guided us babies to our home rooms. After the usual child- ish commotion, we settled down to the business of acquiring an education, Here's a "razzberry" Mr. Fitzgerald took away from me, I made the mistake of using it during school hours. Mr. Fitz- gerald and Miss Elizabeth Murphy were both promoted with us from the Junior High School, They were old friends of ours then, and always will be. Mr. Hill entered Natick High with '32 as our new principal. He had been in such places before, therefore he wasn't as excited as we were. When he came across a group of flushed faces and wild eyes he probably said to himself, "My goodness, such little children". ' THE SASSAMQN H973 ' Sunny California sent us Miss Irene Wilson to head the English Department. When she saw our bright faces, she thought she was back home again. Oh! Here's a spoon from the lunch counter in the Gym. Remember? We had first lunch period then, and many a Junior and Senior at the second lunch found the tomato soup and chocolate eclairs all gone! Speaking of eclairs, the brown frosting reminds me of the color of a well-used football, Hardly had We time to get start- ed when "Russ" Hardigan and "Johnny" Hladick won positions on the first-string eleven. Not to be outdone by athletics, the Debating Team won the Interscholastic Debating Cup for the second consecutive year. A class ring-our Junior year and the usual exchange of these class rings be- tween the he-men of the Junior class and members of the fair sex. I heard that most of them were given back to the own- ers, for some reason or other, About this time we held our election of class officers. "Russ" Hardigan was chosen presidentg "Johnny" Hladick, Vice- president, "Brent" Gordon, Secretary, and "Phil" Sellew, Treasurer. A megaphone-souvenir of the Fram- ingham-Natick grid battle, After running up a fine record of six victorious to one defeat, our Red and Blue team fought a 0-0 tie with Framingham in the Thanks- giving Day classic. Some crepe paper from the Football Dance. At this most successful event, it was announced that "Johnny" Hladick had been elected captain of the football team for the next year. More crepe paper, this time Christmas trimmings. Many hearts in Natick were Hlled with joy on Christmas morning be- cause of the generosity of Natick High Students. Can you ever forget what a pretty picture of good-will and the will- ingness to lend a helping hand those huge boxes filled to overflowing made when lined up on the stage in assembly? I am sure those grateful families of Natick will never forget. Well, I never thought I'd run across a newspaper in this collection. Why, it's The Sassamon, and the Junior Issue at that-our issue! In the left-hand corner it says, "Glee Club presents annual oper- etta, 'Pirate's Daughter', very successful". As a matter of fact, it was the greatest success the Glee Club ever figured in. Many members of this class did their bit to make it a success by some fine acting. Over' on this side in flaring headlines it says "Junior Prom promises to be a big event". And I'll say it was. Even the rain came, and though it tried hard to spoil white flannels and evening gowns, it couldn't dampen anyone's spirits. Re- member Bowmar's of Needham, after the dance? In the field of athletics, the basketball team had one of the best records in the state, seventeen victories to two defeats. "Ed" Mann was elected captain for the Senior year. "Richie" Robbins was chosen captain-elect of the baseball team. A schedule card-reminder of our first day as Seniors. We began with a new rotating six period schedule. After a short try-out it was accepted with enthusi- asm. The same class officers that served us as Juniors were re-elected this year to serve us as Seniors. In keeping up with the mode of the times, these able officers have selected a new-style diploma for graduation. It will be in book form, with the Natick High School seal stamped on the outside. Within is found the custom- ary diploma, design-ed to fit the book. As an after-thought, I may add that this form is more convenient when it is necessary to present it to a prospective employer, Here's a program of the finest piece of entertainment ever produced by a Senior Class. "New Brooms", featuring "Dick" Casey, Elizabeth DeGrasse, and "Joe" Hurd, packed the Junior High School for two nights. Who said the1'e was a depres- sion? "New Brooms" put more money into circulation than all the building projects put together, including the new Boston-Worcester Turnpike. PAGE SEVEN ' THE SASSAMCDN H9732 ' llere's another program entitled "Trial ily Jury", given by the Glee Club. "Bet- ty" Baker and "Tom" Bruneau, both members of this class, by the way, sang the leading' parts, and the Glee Club reg- istered another success in its record book. The rosary of memories is finished. The Class of '32 is gone from Natick High School, but it's there we have left our hearts, and sometime, when you turn to musing' and glancing through your souven- irs, follow your hearts through those hap- py Iligrh School days, the best days of your lite. Thomas Bruneau. H435 . By George Hall Sophomores,-Juniors,-Seniors now, And soon We'll say Adieu. We hope we shall be pardoned, For what we ask of you. If you'll go back with us once more, Thru the memories Of those three years, You find that we had our share, Of the laughter,--the smiles,-and the tears. We didn't puff with glory, And shrink when came thc pain, Of course, we had our sh21l'4H But we took it all the same. When our stars have climbed to glory, And the rest have done their best, You'll find us there, fon top, Whenever comes the test, So when the years are many, And we are but a few, Vi'e hope that you'll remember us, As the Vlass of '32, l',i'xfil'l l'IIf2H'l' CLASS WILL We, the class of 1932 of Natick High School, Possessed with unsound minds. with disposing and pleasant, even if peculiar memories, hereby in the presence of parents and friends, have authorized and have had published this document, bequesting after all legal debts and ex- penses have been paid, the following: To the Juniors an electric phonograph on the condition that they pay for the same before a certain Senior's father sends him after it. To the Sophomores we leave the Study Hall, so that they can mix it with the Laboratory. To Mr Hill we bequeath sincere mem- ories and also a pair of leather heels. To Mr. lVhite we leave a signature stamp as a preventative against his gettirg writer's crainp from signing slipsg as an added bequest the physics class leaves him a spare sheet.

To Miss Wilson we bequeath forty vol- umes of "Emily Post", to distribute among her classes. To Miss Nutt we leave a half-dozen erasers. To Miss Shannon we bequeath the Debating Cup, and another prize-winning Sassamon Board. To Miss Belliveau we leave a life-saving' corps for the benefit of her Goldfish. To Miss Cellarius we leave a fence for protection against lunch-room mobs. Certain Seniors leave their well-prac- ticed talents to certain undergraduates, with the desire of seeing the good, if dis- turbine qualities, perpetuated in all class- rooms. Among' those concerned: Lloyd Prescott leaves his privilege of a five-day week-end to Dorothy Messom. "Joe" Keating bequeaths to John ' THE SASSAMQN H9732 ' Doherty all demerits plus interest he has received for advertising Wrigleysgand hopes that John will add to the principle.

John Hladick bequeaths upon the shoul- ders of "Bobby" Hale the Football Cap- taincy, with the hope that "Bob" can avoid injuries. Brenton Gordon bequeaths his well- thumbed volume of "When and What To Guess In History" to Francis Barnicle. "Lenny" Goodwin bequeaths to the lab. different kinds of fish scales and hopes that they will be neither too slippery nor too weighty. Signed, sealed, published and declared on this tenth day of June, the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and thirty-two, the last will and testament of the Class of Thirty-Two, in the presence of those concerned who have hereunto subscribed their names as attesting witnesses to said document, fSignedj Perl Kinsman Witnessed by: Edith Nutt Betty Baker :IES Piuriittt Place: The Betty fAnne Hairdressing Shoppe, Kalamazoo, Mich. A knock is heard at the door of the shop. Another knock is heard. Loud coughing finally attracts the at- tention of a woman who has been busily combing her flaming locks. She half turns, saying: Betty: May I help you? Eddie: Are you the proprietor of' this shoppe? Betty: Yes, I'm the proprietor. What can I do for you? Eddie: I came in answer to your ad for an expert barber. Betty fturning fully aroundi: Youv- Why, hello there, "Shaver". This is a surprise, Living right up to your name. aren't you? Eddie: Where'd you hear that name he- fore? Betty: Isn't that what you were called in High School? Eddie: Well, that leaves you one up on me. Who are you? Betty: I'm Betty Baker, Don't tell me you didn't recognize me? Eddie: Oh, yes, of course. I knew who you were all the time. How could I for- get that red top? Betty: Well, you haven't changed much. PAGE NINE ' THE SASSAMCDN H932 ' have you? How did you get 'way out here? Eddie: Richard Robbins and I came out in his new monoplanc to see "Howie" Bur- bidge, the great runner, do his stuff in the big Kalamazoo Marathon. "Richie' went back home to South Natick, but as Kalamazoo has always appealed to me- that is, the name has-I decided to stay. Then I saw your ad and came right up. I didn't expect to see anyone I knew. Betty: The girls usually drop in here at lunch time. You'll see some more classmates then. Eddie: Girls-what girls? Betty: Oh, didn't you know? Anna Garvin is the cooking teacher in the High School here and Clara Allen keeps books for "Huck" Roberts. You know he's going well as the new manager for Grant's. "Liz" might stop here, too. She just arrived. She has been out West, painting a picture of Esther Shea. Esther is tak- ing Greta Garbo's place now. They say She even bleached her hair. Eddie: Esther isn't the only star we have in our ranks. James Brady is on the New York stage just at present. And you should see "Dick" Casey. He's certainly climbing up in the world-but then-he always was a "cocky" chap at school. Betty: What is he doing now? Eddie: Oh, he's a professor at Sherborn Tech. "Dan" Davis is traveling, He spends most of his time at "Roma"-I should say Rome. I wonder what became of "Bob" Fiske? Betty: Ile is succeeding as a musical comedy director, Mary Bond, Jean Bor- den, and Wilhelmina Pansieri are in his show. "Millie" Ware is the pianist. 1 saw their rhow and it was great. Eddie: It should be, with all that talent. Wcslcy Hopf' was telling me something about it. Hr-'s their manager. Betty: By the way, I saw Eunice Viles their-. She is a reporter for John Wil- liams' paper. "The Spccklarn, Eddie: John has hi: paper printed at John I'lrunc:iu'.: printing press, doesn't he? I'AfH'I 'l'I'IN Betty: Yes. They say Eunice rode out in a car she borrowed from Lloyd Prescott. You know, Lloyd is manager of the Natick branch of Sebastian Angelo's news stands. Eddie: Well-well. Who do you sup- pose is the principal of the new high school of Felchville that "Art" Thayer, the great architect, designed? Betty: Why, I heard that it was "Phil" Sellew and I also heard that Kenneth Damon is teaching Chemistry and "Soapy" Scott is the Geometry teacher. They say "Soapy" has memorized the whole book. It seems to me that would take a long time. Eddie: Where did you get all the inform- ation? Betty: I had a letter from Barbara Carr. Eddie: What is Barbara doing now? She used to be a great friend of Astrid Erlandsorfs. Betty: She's running a Sandwich Shop at the High School and "Dot" Hume is working with her.

Eddie: It was like this-she and Harry Church were out riding on one of the new motorcycles Harry designed and she fell off the back of it when they blew one of the cheap tires they bought from "Bill" Warren, the garage man. Betty: That's terrible. What did they do? Eddie: They took her right over to Clifford Main's Health Home and then called Dr. Oliver Dufault. They thought for a while they'd have to call Mary Scott. Betty: I hear that she is the only woman undertaker in the East. Eddie: You're right.

She was bit- ten by a horse. while on her daily ride through Dover. It seems strange that a horse could be so cruel to Helen. She has always been so fond of horses. Eddie: "Jim" Delaney started a chain of stores of his own, while "Terry" Town- send stayed with the A. Kr P., and what fierce competition theyire giving each other! Betty: Barbara said that Paul Brans- field and "Willie" Callahan are the pro- prietors of the H13 Club", a famous night club in South Natick, and Francis Bishop. the big cop down there, is watching them every minute. Eddie: Oh, yes. I meant to tell you about that. What a floor show they put on! Donald Brown was master of cere- monies and Frona and Gerald Tupper did a tumbling act. They're billed as the "Tupper Twisters". Betty: Yes, and Perl Kinsman and "Tom" Bruneau, The Dismal Duo, are making the people forget "Bing" Crosby and "Rudy" Valle. Mary Barley, the great soprano, sings quite often with them, Eddie: They were featured at the Colon- ial Theatre, when I was in Natick. Betty: Isn't Ruth Colburn selling tickets there? Eddie: Yes, and Betty Egan is managing The Mickey Mouse Club. Walter Maloney, the "little fixer", is the manager of the Natick Arena. Betty: I read that his championship hockey team. thx' Natick Bruins, led by Captain Zicko, are 'way ahead in the league. I thought Preston Daly and Lud- vick Genevicz were hockey players. Eddie: Preston Daly is also playing for the Bruins, but you were right about Gen- cvicz. He only thought he was a hockey player. Just now hc-'s a six-day bicycle PAGE 'l'HlR'I'Y-TWO racer. When he won in five days, the promoters, Isabelle Allen and Jewell Harper, thought something was "fishy". Betty: That makes me think, what's happened to Leonard Goodwin? Didn't he get in trouble in the New York Stock Exchange? Eddie: Yes, Goodwin sold all his stock on American Fish gl Fish at a high price. After that he Hooded the market with fish. which brought the stock 'way down. Maybe that's the cause of this last depres- sion. Betty: Have you seen "Peg" Loring lately? Eddie: Yes, she has an art school in the new block "Eddie" Anderson built last year. Mary Murphy and Madeline Ann- strong teach there and Jane Bronkie is the manager of the school. Betty: That must be where "Bob" Gas- sett has his dancing school. Eddie: Yes, it's on the roof garden of the same building. Betty: Francis Collins has finally suc- ceeded as a drummer, He sells left-handed trombones. I wonder what happened to some of our other musicians? Eddie: Well, "Dick" Balzarini is broad- casting over George Jackson's radio sta- tion. He is known as the "One-Man Band". I heard that "Bob" Riddell was featuring his orchestra, the Kalamazoo Kollegians, over the same station. Betty: Yes-but he isn't known as "Bob" Riddell any more. He has changed his name to Rudy Riddellee. Francis Keany is a drummer in the Army Band now, too. Eddie: I was reading in the paper that "Joe" Hurd and "Joe" Keating are a couple of big cheeses in Natick, now. They bought Ames' Butter and Egg Store. I'll bet they buy all their eggs from "Mike" Quatrale. the big poultry man. I read also that "Johnny" Hladick is pitching for the Braves. Betty: "Russ" Hardigan and "Art" Hughes were great pals of "Johnny's". Isn't "Russ" in the army? Eddie: Yes, he was made colonel when ' THE SASSXSXMCDINI H973 ' he graduated from West Point and is now stationed in Hawaii. "Hughsie" just cleaned up in the United Drug Co. Betty: Did he? You know "Bert" Miles is famous for his acrobatic stunts. He performs on the new bridge, over the Charles River, that "Dave" Swanson erected. Eddie: Oh, yes, he completed that just about the same time that "Joe" McNichols and "Jimmie" Smith started their sight- seeing trip--you know-the world through a port-hole, D Betty: I never expected to see them in the navy. I have an ad here from Eleanor Murray, Bertha Doucette, and Doris Erick- son. They have opened a gown shop in Wellesley. Eddie: They used to model for Phyllis Church, in her Natick shop, didn't they? Betty: Yes, and Irene Neale and Emma Nichols are working in the High School office. Eddie: I was in there, the other day, and while there, Veronica White came in to take an order for new suits for the girls' basketball team, which is being coached by Helen Corkery. Betty: I heard that Marjorie Lever is taking care of the Commercial Depart- ment and Melba Simmons is her assistant. "Jo" Ghetti is coaching the golf team this year. Eddie: Yes, and she insists on using the new type of golf ball, invented by Paul Lunt, Natick's great inventor. Betty: Have you seen the new library at the High School that "Dot" Wright, the great novelist, donated? Eddie: Yes. Catherine Godsoe is thc librarian. Betty: Why, I thought she was the sec- retary of Arnold Feltus, the general man- ager of Swift 81 Co. Eddie: No. Bertha Cashman has that position. Oh, you should have gone to the aviators' convention, in New York. "Gene" Foley and Francis Flynn were there. They represented the Natick Air- port. Betty: Really. By the way, what ever became of "Brent" Gordon? He was always prominent in school activities. Eddie: Why, he's just been re-elected to the School Committee and I hear that he is in favor of letting out school at one o'clock. Betty: That reminds me. What time is it? Eddie: It's nearly one o'clock. Betty: I'll have to close the shop now. The girls are coming and there's Irene Cartier. She's been lecturing here this morning in the City Hall. Eddie: Well, it was great to see you. I'll report for work in the morning if all goes well. So long, Betty. Betty: Bye, "Shaver". SALUTATORY Parents, Faculty, and Friends: It is a privilege and a pleasure to wel- come you to the Commencement Exercises of the Class of 1932. Today terminates our High School careers. In them we have formed many friendships bonded only by daily meetings in school. That many of these relations are about to be severed makes today sig- nificant in itself. For some of us it is the final day of any general schooling. Of these a few will find employment and, as we all know, many more will not. This last is a subject on which I would say just a few words, Early in this year we had at one of our assemblies a speaker from a college in Boston, on the subject, "High School Graduates and the Depression." The point which she brought out was this, that every High School graduate who possibly can should, in times like these, continue on in school. The chances of recent grad- uates finding employment are very meager, it was pointed out, and those who do might hold positions open to persons in greater need. And for those who would continue on in school, but lack the neces- sary aid, state endowed universities and PAGE THIRTY-THREE ' iii-ilk SASSAMCDINI IIC7322 "' extension schools of various kinds were mentioned. My friends, indirectly for have already consideration in vain. The straighten the selves, but if furthering of that address was intended you, and if some of you taken these thoughts into our efforts have not been few of us cannot hope to affairs of' the world by our- we can help affairs by this education, then the subject deserves much thought. And now, to every one of you who has helped us to the peak of our preliminary careers, we extend the best wishes and the heartiest greetings. Arthur L. Thayer VALEDICTORY According to Webster, courage is "that quality of mind which enables one to encounter danger and difficulties with firmness, or without fear, or fainting of heart". If this, then, is the meaning of courage, we can know that many people have this quality and that every one of us should possess it if we are to make of ourselves the very best that is possible, for there are always "dangers and diffi- culties" to be met either courageously or in fear and trembiing. If we take the latter course we are doomed to defeat at the very beginning. There are varied kinds of courage. The first and lowest class is physical cour- age, which is the result of muscular strength and power. But this physical courage is not of much use unless it can be supplemented by mental and moral courage, which give us the assurance that we are right and the courage to stand firmly for our beliefs and convictions. To my mind, the greatest example of this courage-physical, mental, and moral- was demonstrated by that great body of mcn and women who left their homes and PAGE 'l'llllt'l'Y-l"0UR dear ones here in the East to plunge through the wilderness to blaze the trails to freedom and happiness for future gen- erations, These Pioneers were ready to face Indians, starvation, cold, and other hardships through their physical courage. But that is not all, They carried with them the traditions and the ideals which they believed were the highest things in life and they stood firmly for them, allow- ing nothing to destroy them or to modify or influence them in any slightest instance, In this bi-centennial year of George Washington's birth, when all thought is turned to him and his works, let us 1'ecall the courage he always showed, He ever excelled in athletics and contests of strength, and when he reached public life he demonstrated the mental and moral courage that had been his even as a boy. We know him as "The Father of His Coun- try, first in peace, first in war, and first in the hearts of his fellow-men." There are many other instances of great things that have required courage to ac- complish, but it is not onlv in the great things and the lofty achievements that courage is necessary. Even more, perhaps, is it essential to meet the everyday ups and downs, which come to us all, with a courageous spirit. We, the members of this graduating class of 1932, are going out into a world that is sorely upset and troubled by the general depression that is upon us. Every ounce of courage and strength that we can call to our aid will be needed to meet the problems that we must solve. Let us, therefore, fellow classmates, profit by the example set us by these dear parents, teachers, and friends, and try to attain the courage, strength, and good judgment which will make us victori- ous and enable us to bring peace and prosperity to ourselves and to posterity.

A V .,X,lll:i-li ur' FD l- IEE., gf p 1 " , O 1 s PATENT INJUSTICE The United States Patent Office, now consisting of some three thousand prac- ticing' members of the patent bar, origin- ated in the latter part of 1790. The office was established to protect an inventor's invention for a certain number of years, and to make such profits as there were in his invention. The Patent Office was cre- ated by the Constitution, which empow- ered Congress "to promote the progress of science and useful arts by securing to inventors for a limited time fat present seventeen yearsi, the exclusive right to their discoveries". The first patent issued in the United States Patent Office was the new method of making soap from potash, which was issued late in 1791. A patent is a document, granted to an inventor, which secures for him, for sev- enteen years, the sole right to make what- ever profit there is in his invention. The patent does not give the inventor the right to manufacture or sell his in- vention, however. These rights he can secure only under certain conditions which are imposed on him by the police power of the state. A patent may be obtained only when the invention does not confiict with any other invention already patented, or any invention submitted to the Patent Ofnce before cepted. his application, but not yet ac- The inventor must submit descriptions and drawings. and when it is required, a model of his invention. He must also pay a fee of twenty-five dollars. If the in- vention is aceepted and a patent is issued, another fee of twenty-five dollars must be paid. There is very little difference in the method of obtaining' patents in the United States and the method employed in Ene- land, except that in England, a patent must be either granted or refused within eighteen months after the application has been Hled. This is a very short time com- pared to the time an application may re- main in the United States Patent Office, before it is decided upon, for there have been incidents when an application has remained in the Patent Ofhce as long as ten years before a patent is refused or granted. The chief difference between the United States and the British patent systems, however, is the number of patents issued by each country. In three hundred years England has granted only 360,000 patents, while the United States, in only one hundred and forty-one years, has issued 1,800,000 For the sake of safety, an inventor in the United States must cover his inven- tion not only with one basic patent, but PAGE THIRTY-FIVE ' THE SASSAMCDN IIC732 ' with several subsidiary patents, or what is known as "patent structure". This is very costly, but it is probably worth it, even at 3500 a patent. Another injustice is the patent pending "racket", While a patentee's applications are moving through the Patent Office, they may run into an "interference", Another inventor may have Hled and kept alive applications covering his unsuccessful attempts to make his idea or invention Work. lntentionally prolonging the pendency of his applications, this inventor or pa- tentee may hold a dragnet over any par- ieular field of science. This is known as the Udragnet application". The United States should eliminate the Udragnet applications" by "limiting a patent monopoly to twenty years from the time of filing, instead of seventeen years from the date of issuance of the patent". Also the patent office should be forced to take final action on all applications within three years of their filing. A special supreme court of patent appeals should be created. The prospect of these changes taking place, however, seems no better than remote. Its structure unchanged since its or- igin, the United State Patent Office is a soundly organized, though ancient mech- anism. Our patent office, however, at the present time, is too expensive, too slow, and too uncertain. No doubt much of the present waste of time and money could be averted if fewer but more valid patents were issued. Law suits, the most dangerous evil of our svs- tem, would thus be greatly reduced. Re- ports show that approximately fifteen thousand law suits have grown out of the one million eight hundred thousand pat- ents issued to date in the United States. Probably thirty thousand patent cases have bcen settled out of court, because they were regarded as insufficiently im- portant to warrant their including them in the records. Estimating that the average cost of a PAGE 'l'HlR'l'Y-SIX patent suit is 35,000 falthough many at- torneys say S10,000J, there is assessed against our patent system a liability of 375,000,000 for the settlement of the issued patents. Allowing 31,000 each, a very small figure, for the thirty thousand suits begun, but never tried, the system's debit runs up to more than 5B100,000,000. This sum is sufficient to operate the patent office efficiently for twelve years. It takes from one to ten years to settle a patent case and the cost may be as high as fB150,000. The "patent pool", which originated as far back as 1856 fin the case of the sewing niachinel, was devised to avoid the need- less tax of law suits. The most notable success of the "patent pool" has been that of the automobile manufacturers. In 1914 one hundred and thirty-four auto manufacturers pooled their patents under the supervision of the National Automobile Chamber of Com- merce. Since its origin it is estimated that more than 27,000,000 automobiles, worth SS24,000,000,000, have been manu- factured under its protection. The Hpatent pool" is a great help to the inventor, for it does away with competi- tive bidding for his discovery and limits his invention to one organization. Also the pool gives him a large and firm market for his invention, and may in the end, yield him more than he could obtain from a single concern, If an individual company acquires val- uable patents, it is allowed a period of sole enjoyment, which lasts until the next general renewal of the pool agreement, at which time all the patents are put into the common pool. It can readily be seen that the "patent pool" is a much better system than the United States Patent Office, not only be- cause it protects and helps the inventor, but because it also aids a particular Held of industry. Peter Zicko. ' TIME SASSAXMCDN H9322 ' MAGAZINE CGVERS Did you ever pass a magazine rack and catch a fleeting glance of rows and rows of veritable rainbows? If you stopped a moment to study these cover designs, which caused the rainbows of colors, you would find many different types. There would be drawings in modernistic style, where angles and squares were joined in a bizarre manner with great dashes of color intermingled, You would see comic designs, perhaps, showing children at grown-up play, trying to duplicate their elders in manner and dress. There might be some which would evoke instant sym- pathy. Beauty, also, would be promin- ent for there are so many beautiful things in nature and in humanity. It may not always be physical beauty, but some inner glory which permeates outer appearances. Let us look behind the scenes and sur- prise the artist at his work. We won- der, as we watch him at his canvas, what inspired him to spend his time and ener- gies in painting pictures for magazine covers. Perhaps his talent doesn't go be- yond that, or he may find it more interest- ing than painting portraits of social heir- esses or great statesmen. A real artist can find material for his work from the ordinary happenings he encounters every day of his life. He thinks of the cheery smile on the newsboy's face when he de- livered the morning paper, and straight- way he visualizes that cheerful face as it would appear on canvas, or he may en- counter children at play and and material for his work in their childish glee. As we look at the finished picture, we either think it is good or bad, depending on the person. Some artists can paint a picture and you can just feel its realness. It gives the impression that the artist has actually made the characters himself, and put them on paper for the rest of the world to see and judge His colors are blended perfectly to give the desired effect. Another person may paint thc same picture and it will look Hat and artificial, The artist lacks that very im- portant something which gives a picture life and character. A very important part of the artist's work are the models he employs. They should be the best that he can command. They should be able to practically live the part of the particular character they are going to pose as, Finding the desired type of model with a degree of talent often takes a great deal of the artist's time and money. Artists who paint magazine covers and illustrations for other literature are usu- ally considered ordinary. Yet, some of the most interesting and skillful work has been depicted in this manner. Work of this type reaches the masses of humanity more than the other types of paintingg therefore, they appreciate it more. When you look at pictures on covers of books or magazines, can't you just im- agine the story in back of it? I remem- ber looking at a cover on Sunday Globe Magazine one day, and it made such an imprint on my memory that I have never forgotten it. It showed a little boy, rather shabbily dressed, standing outside a Pet Shop, gazing at some little, wire-haired terriers inside the show window. In his hand were all the treasures he possessed, a piece of pretty, colored glass, an allie and two marbles, an old and much-worn rabbit's foot, some bits of wire, a sling shot and an old tin whistle. He looked so disappointed and chagrined when he saw the sign marked 315.011, in big, black PAGE THIRTY-SEVEN ' THE SASSAMCDN H5732 ' letters, and he hadn't a cent in the W0l'ld- I can imagine how he felt, as he stood there watching the little puppies play, and wishing he could have one. How he would teach it to do tricks and how jealous the other "fellas" in the alley would feel when he marched proudly down the street with his new possession! He would call it "Curly", because its hair crinkled up into such a curly mass. Of course, the hair would straighten out as the puppy grew older, but that didn't matterg he didn't see the necessity of thinking be- yond the present. He believed in living each day as it came along. This little episode amounted almost to a catastrophe in this little boy's life. There are ever and ever so many things which afford painting material, Some of the more common ones which are seen on all types of magazines are the season's greetings, such as Spring and Winter. Holidays always furnish an abundance of material, Christmas, New Year's and Easter being outstanding, though at the present time, the celebration of Washing- ton's two hundredth birthday is causing much interest. There are always beauti- ful views and extraordinary scenes from nature to be painted. Household maga- zines usually depict domestic scenes. In sports there is always something' interest- ing happening. The other day I was looking over a stack of old magazines that had been put away and forgotten. The pictures on the covers were of every conceivable kind. Cnc Saturday Evening Post cover inter- ested me greatly. The picture might have been called "A Difficult Situation". It showed a small boy being reprimanded by his mother. On a table nearby stood a jar of jam with the cover off and a spoon beside it. The spoon was smeared with I'AG!'I 'l'HlR'l'Y-I'IlGH'l jam. Obviously, the little boy, when questioned, had endeavored to place the blame on a rather non-descript looking' puppy, who dozed in a contented manner under the table. However, the boy had overlooked the fact that puppies' manners have been neglected and consequently they do not use spoons to eat jam with, or anything else for that matter, I could just picture the astonishment on that lit- tle boy's face when this fact was brought forth. He thought his alibi had been proof against any amount of questions, and it was all turned topsy-turvy by a mere spoon that had been forgotten. Another picture which interested me was of a young girl just graduating from high school. What memories this picture would recall to some of the older folk. They would think of that long ago time when they were just on the brink of en- tering that seriousness of life. How they had dreamed and made plans only to have them frustrated in a moment of indeci- sion or weakness, or by a situation not of their making. All the incidents and hap- penings of their youth would be lived over again. So it is the world over-age lives in the past. The artist's purpose in painting certain types of pictures is not always evident at a glance, but if you study a series of his pictures, very often they contain the same theme, but a different phase of it. Some artists do their best work when reproduc- ing nature, because they are most inter- ested in that line of art. Others, because of their deep understanding and sympathy with human nature, secure the best results from painting the everyday scenes from life. Still others paint because they love to. It becomes a part of them, and no other work would satisfy them or make them happy. Perhaps, these artists should be rated among our greatest, but most of them never rise above a certain level. There are only a few favored ones, whose heads are lifted above the crowds, and maybe they started their careers as maga- zine illustrators, Irene Neale.

After losing to lVlarlboro, in the season's opener, by a "flukey" fumble, the Red and Blue went out and cleaned up Swampscott, Wellesley, and Dedham, in short order. Natick then lost their next two games to Milford and Belmont, two very stronfr opponents. Then the following Saturday they fougght on even t'-rms with a formid- zilplf- Needham team. The following- week, "Huck" Roberts, l',V2I'l l'Off'l'Y-'l'VK'U star lineman, suffered a broken collar bone in practice. To make matters worse, Captain Hladick was discovered to be the victim of a fractured collar bone, the result of an early season injury. In the next game, in which Natick gave Norwood a score, Fay, a star tackle, was put on the injured list with a severely- wrenched arm. Consequently, Natick was a ,fzreatly weakened team when they clashed with Framingham, although Captain Hladick played throughout the game, despite his injury. Framingham won the game and considered themselves fortunate in doing so.

BOYS'BASKETBALL The Natick High School quintet of 1931- 32 set up a very fine record for future teams to shoot at. They won thirteen and lost but two games, and set a winning streak of twelve successive games. The team was again coached by John F. Donahue, Physical Director, who seems to have a habit of turning out winning combinations year after year. The Red and Blue five opened up as usual by defeating the Alumni, but lost their first inter-school game to Norwood, PAGE FORTY-THREE ' THE SASSAXAAQN M5732 ' in a thrilling game, 30-29. This loss was later avenged for. From then on, the Natick steamroller waded through all opposition. The Red and Blue five put on gi winning streak that was finally stopped by Framingham, in the final contest of the SGZISOH. Without doubt, the boys set up a re- markable re:-ord, and much credit must be given both the boys and Coach Don- ahue. Although "Buck" had but two veterans, Capt. "Eddie" Mann and George Fay, he developed some Hne basketballers in the persons of "Art" Hughes, "Russ" Hardi- gan, "Johnny" Hladick and "Huck" Rob- erts. These last named fellows covered themselves with glory during the basket- ball season and it is a shame that the entire six, mentioned above, are all Sen- iors, with the exception of Fay. He is lost, too, however, as he became ineligible for further competition in High School sports, early in March.

Veterans from the preceding year were: Captain Hall, "Bill" McMahan, and George Hanna, Other members of the squad were: "Al" Wood- ward, John Mitchell, and "Bob" McNichols. Several matches were played with high schools of neighboring towns, in which the boys showed their mettle and also their "heels" to the opponents. All home matches were played on the Wildwood Golf Club links, through the courtesy of Mr. Arnold.

Reg- inald Williamson, BOYS' BASEBALL Natick High was again represented by a fine group of ball tossers on the diamond this year. With only three veterans pres- ent to play this, two of them pitchers, practically the entire team was "given". However, a good pitching staff was as- sured, with Capt. Richard Robbins and John Hladick ready to toe the mound. The other lone veteran was "Eddie" Mann, last year's second sacker. Although Natick was not blessed with much veteran material, all neighboring schools were well fortiiied with experi- enced performers and a great deal of reserve strength. Due to these facts the Natick schedule took on an appearance which was all but inviting. However, Coach Donahue worked hard with the boys who reported for practice every day after school, and succeeded in developing some fine ball players. Start- ing out with a' bang, by playing four games the first week of the scheduled sea- son, the Red and Blue warriors gathered in three wins. The next few games found the boys in a slumn. But after getting over this, the boys succeeded in knockini! off plenty of their opponents. LINEUPS Second Team "Bob" Rhonstock "Busty" Angelo First Team Capt. Robbins p. "Joe" Horan c.

At the first meeting the fol- low officers were elected: President-Russell Hardigan Vice-President-Richard Casey Secretary-Irene Cartier Treasurer-William Warren The Council's first duty was suoervisiig the election of The Sassamon Board. This year the Council drew un a Hand- book of a Code of Ethics. This promises to be a very useful thing to the incomin: Sophomores. In February two delegates from the Council attended the Student Council Convention, in Springfield. The Council has also supervised the care of the lunch-room during the lunch perioil. Among the new ideas perpetrated was the reading' of the minutes of each meet- ing in the home rooms, the day following the meeting, thus keeping the students in closer contact with the Council. A radio for the Gym was introduced by the Council, but it was decided that an electric Victrola was better suited to our needs. We sincerely hope next ycar's Council will carry on the good work done thiS year.

THE SENIOR PLAY "NEW BROOMSW ':New Brooms" was presented by the on February 11 and 12, Class of 1932, in the Coolidgre Junior High School Audi- torium. This modern dealt with the story. by Frank Craven, troubles too often found in the American business man's home. Mr. Thomas Bates, Sr., portrayed by "Dick" Casey, and his son. ably played by "Joe" Hurd, disagree on business methods, the modern young' lady and modern social life. Tom, Jr., is just out of college and is anxious to prove several of his theories. The climax is reached when son and dad exchange places for one year. Tom's former friends, his sis- ter, Ethel fAlta Densmorelg her beau, Q P.-Xfil-I l ll"l"'.'-'I' WU "Wally" fR0bert Fiskeig Tom's fiancee, Florence fBetty Bakerlg her cousin, George Morrow f"Ed" Mannjg Simpson fBre:1ton Gordoni, and Nelson fWilliam VVarrenJ, change their opinions of this "fine young man", when he becomes a matter-of-fact business man.

After pursuing his chosen course for the year, Tom finds he is just a chip off he old block anyhow, and thinqs come to pleasant climax when he marries Jerry. The stage work was well done, and ap- preciated. The class Will always be grate- ful to Miss Wilson, Mr. Cronan, Miss Ratsey, Mr. Peterson, and Miss Mann, for their heaity cooperation.

THE DRAMATIC CLUB In September of this year, under the guidance of our dramatic coach, Miss Irene Wilson, a Dramatic Club was organized, with Brenton Gordon, President, and Irene Cartier, Secretary-Treasurer. The pur- poses of the club were three-fold. First, an opportunity to act in playsg secondly, a study of stage management, and lastly, to help the school wherever and whenever possible. In all three the club has achieved suc- cess. On an October evening it presented a Hallowe'en Dance. and during intermis- sion a well-staged performance of Ade's "Speaking To Father" was given, At the Christmas Assembly the club presented "Why the Chimes Rang." Cheerful co-operation within the club. plus clever coaching, brought more plaud- its from the school. The club then recon- ditioned the scenery for the Senior Play. rendering valuable assistance to the Senior Class. "The Trysting Place," by Booth Tark- ington, was presented at a spring assem- bly, bringing the final curtain on a great first-year! The club will miss its Senior members. who have contributed so much to its success, but we wish them well and hope the Sophomore Class will bring us many promising actresses and actors.

CLUB When twenty girls band together. under the sisterly guidance of a friendly advis- or, things are bound to happen. When twenty N. H. S. girls formed an S. O. S. Club and chose Miss Mann for an adviser, things did happen! The Club has been a helping hand to the school all year, they provided Christ- mas Boxes of their own, they aided the Dramatic Club in costuming their per- formances, they aided the Senior Play Candy Committee and well, we're just stopping because we haven't room! The highlight of their achievements rests in the Football Dance. Picture a Decem- ber evening, a full moon, a bright, clear sky, crispy air. From out of our halls fioats the dashing, dancing rhythm of the Jazz Orchestra-merry voices echoing upon the still air. No need to go on, it was that festive occasion which all remem- ber, and none can ever forget, the S. O. S. Football Dance. SUNSET DANCES There were no Blue Mondays in our High School this year, for Mondays were Sunset Dance Days. These afternoon dances met increasing popularity all year, despite the depression. Music was furnished by "Dick" Balzar- ini and his N. H. S. Jazz Band. At one dance or another during the year the versatile "Dick" has furnished every one of us with his favorite tempo, tune, or arrangement. During the year dances were run by The Sassamon, the Dramatic Club, Debat- ing Society. French Club, Hockey Basketball teams, the Orchestra, and the Band. and PAGE FIFTY-SEVEN ' THE SXASSAMQN H973 ' l DEBATING Back Row-John Keating, Francis Barnicle.

By mutual agree- ment. the League closed competition for one year. That, however, failed to stop our sterl- ing' speakers, for they presented Assembly Debates during' the earlier part of the year. In December a debate was held with Swampscott, on the subject: "Re- solved, That Trial By Jury Should Be Abolishedn. Later in the Spring, we de- bated with Norwood on the question: "Re- solved: That Every Community Should Have Some Form of Compulsory Unem- ployment Insurancen. The Natickites, upholding' the affirmative, lost a close de- cision. Our speakers were splendid, how- ever, and deserve every bit of commenda- tion that can be given the loser, without VA!! li I-'Il"'l'Y-l'IlGH'l' detracting- from the qualities of the winner, The membership of the club is largely Junior, so that they will take the cup for us again next year, with this roster of orators to draw from: John Keating, Dorothea Sunderland, Agnes Lane, Grace Feeley, and Charles Mills. The Club brought honor to this school when the school, because of its fine de- baters, was asked to procure two speakers for the High School Principals' Conven- tion, The places were open to the entire student body, but two Club members, Ag- nes Lane and Charles Mills, were elected to represent their school. Their performance was so satisfactory, that instead of their trying' to live up to the school's reputation, we fear we'll have to live up to theirs. Miss Shannon again coached the Club, and we are confident that as long as she does, we will have a splendid group-and we strongly suspect that if the League should have a Faculty Debate, our com- bined opponents would not conquer Natick.

SASSAM ON BOARD This year The Sassamon appropriately celebrated its Twentieth Anniversary by bringing to Natick the Third Prize in the Columbia Press Association. In 1912 our Sassamon started as a 111212- azine issued four times yearly by the students. The magazine was largely fle- voted to sports and short stories. cuts were unknown. As time passed, the school grew and the scope of the magazine grew with it. In 1928 The Sassamon Board voted to change the style of The Sassamon. It was decided to issue a paper, containing all school news, eight times during the school year, and to issue a magazine, the Senior Year Book, annually. From 1928, until the present year, The Sassamon has grown by leaps and bounds. The line paper of the last two years is largely due to the splendid cooperation and direction we have had from Miss Shan- non and Mr. Sears. The Board proved that it could do more than issue a paper in April when it pre- sented The Sassamon Dance. With over a hundred couples in attendance, all en- joying themselves, one of the social high- lights of the season passed in a few short hours. Next year's board, we hope, will go further and bring home the First Prize.

There are nineteen pupils in the club, who are taking either second or third- year French, and although this is nOt a very large number, someone once said, "quality, not quantity, counts", Early in the term the members spon- sored a Sunset Dance. The returns of the dance went to buy French song books. At all the meetings thereafter, which were held every month, the club enjoyed singing the quaint French songs, as well as playing many amusing French games. PAGE SIXTY Miss Dyer also obtained two issues of "La Vie", which were read in the club period. The work of the club this past year has been a very interesting form of instruc- tive entertainment. -..,?TTT, SENIOR RECEPTION The Class of '32 held their reception in the Natick Armory on the evening of June 10.

Grace Church and Miss Mar- garet Cellarius were the Faculty Advisers and Miss Elva C. Coulter was chairman of the evening. THE JUNIOR PROM Last year the Class of '32 began a "New Era in Proms". Soft lights, sweet music and air scented with the fragrance of flowers brought every one into that mel- low, wholesome mood, which all enjoy- and never tire of. The Class of '32 began that era--the Class of '33 speedily brought it to its peak. The WLOE Orchestra, under the direction of Sid Clarke, furnished music-aye, we might better term it heavenly tones in mod- ern rhythm, Waltzes followed fox trots- beginners vied with the keenest dancers-- oh, night of bliss! Refreshments -intermission - dance- pleasant chatter-Natick High had never witnessed quite such a night. But we've told a lot that will never be forgotten- don't let us forget-and still thank-the Junior Class and their two splendid advis- ers-Miss Nutt and Miss Belliveau for a happy, happy evening. .xx i 5 'A So J r L' 0 " P. :.3' T -lr., AA4 1 1- 8?
