The goal toward which wc have steadily been making our way these many years, and which at times has seemed so remote, is just before us now. Each one will have his particular field of activity to enter and each his particular goal to strive for. ln a few short weeks the ties that bind us here will be dissolved and the class will be scattered far and near. Here in Natick High School we have made life-long friends, and so, although we think of -our coming separation with re- gret, we rejoice that many a friendship formed here will gladden our lives for years to come. As we stand today at the parting of ways, we find rising from deep down in our hearts a grateful sense of obligation-- first to our parents, for it is to them that we owe largely this opportunity for gain- ing an education, then secondly, to our teachers. who have guided us on our way. They have done this we feel sure, not for pecuniary gain to themselves, but with a real desire to help us in the attainment of that goal which we have set. We are well aware of the fact that we have many hard- ships to contend with, many obstacles to climb and many hindrances to overcome, but like good soldiers in a good cause we must "Carry On!" FRANCIS CAREY CLAS HIS ORY. The steamship "Education" on which we, thc tourists of '34 set sail three years ago, has almost completed its cruise and is once- again returning to her home port. The passengers have bccn enchanted with PAHIC SIX the wonderful sights and events of their voyage. The ship anchored at the port of Natick, we were taken to a large building where we were told that it was worthwhile to spend some time. We ran about explor- ing the different rooms. The first week confusion reigned as we tried to find our way about. Wearily we sought our bunks each night. Soon, however, we became acquainted with every nook and corner. At first we went about envying the tour- ists who had booked passage bef-ore us, who seemed to us very haughty and proud. Some day near the end of our cruise we would be as high and mighty, was the thought that cheered us onward. We noticed that we were n-ot all in- terested in seeing the same sights. Some tarried in rooms where'Latin, French and German ideas were exhibited, going back day after day as they became more and more curious. In other rooms the clicking of typewriters and other machines held some fascinated. All of us see-med to spend a part of every day at the English exhibit, always finding something new. During the second year of our cruise we ventured on a, side trip. Some of the earlier tourists were wearing curious rings all alike, so we cruised along to a nearby p-ort where we found some which would distinguish us as a group. These rings al- ways seemed on the move, being found on different fingers as each month moved along. We de-cided about this time to elect ship officers as was the custom followed by our superiors in the second year of their cruise. Francis Carey was chosen Captain: Andrew Bismark, 1st Mate, Hazel Hurst, Keeper of the Log, and John Riotchford, Purser. Because of this election, we tourists of '34 considered ourselves now on a par with those earlier one's now called Seniors. Then came the event which had been keeping us all on edge for many weeks, the Ship Prom. For this one night we left behind us our steamship "Education," lying at anchor in the harbor. The air about the large hall in which we were gathered was filled with sweet music and the sound of laughter. This night will go The SMYSSVZIJWQXV : 1934 down on the log in the cabin as one of the gayest and happiest events on our cruise. The next issue of the ship's paper, the Sassamon, featured this with the head- lines "Ship Prom Huge Success." Athletic teams were organized which consumed much of our leisure time. Our teams played against those of other ships on similar cruises. As was the custom on all cruises to sum up what had been seen, so we gathered in our different groups to find out how much we knew. Each produced a travelogue, but some were very much surprised to find out how little they had discovered as compared with others and resolved to use their eyes to better advantage hereafter. Returning from our summer vacation cruise c-n which we had little work to do we found that the tourists of '33 had passed on to other ports and we were the senior tourists now. During the final year of our cruise our athletes, with their standard "I Serve," received high recognition for their achieve- ment. In the annual Thanksgiving Day classic with our rival ship of education "The Framingham," our football team rose to great heights to hold our rival to a 0-0 tie. All our athletic teams were very suc- cessful. There was a side trip which the football men wanted very badly. Because the finances of the ship were very low, it was decided this side trip could not be afforded. But the boys getting together with the cooperation of the whole crew of the ship staged a deck dance and basketball game which raised the desired amount. This trip was to a sweater factory where each boy was presented with a souvenir in the form of a sweater. Again we left our steamship "Education" anchored in the harbor while we enter- tained our friends on shore with a play, "Strawberry Kate." We were decidedly successful in filling every seat in the house, if resounding applause and enormous box- oflice receipts are any test. Now. as the ship heads toward our home port we have mingled feelings of joy and regret. Joy that we have successfully completed our cruise and reg1'et that the pleasant 'companionship must end. At the home port we are to be given a great ova- tion in the theatre, through the kindness of Mrs. Harris. Then we must leave the steamship "Education" to which we have become almost inseparably attached hoping at some time that we, the tourists of '34. can be reunited in a 100 percent gathering on board our Steamship "Education" 14555 . Our high school days are nearly o'er The time has come to say "Goodbye" to all, because we've come To a parting of the way. Weve had our Prom and Senior l-'lay Our loved Mid-years are through. And now with many sad regrets We make our last "adieu." We hope you'll miss our cheery crowd And wish each day still more That once again you'd hear and see The Class of Thirty-four. EVALYN ERNST CLASS SONG '34 Tune of "The Old Covered Bridge" As we stand here tonight All dressed up in blue and white Our friends we do not want to leave For our teachers we stand And tha.nk for their helping hand Before we shall leave Old Natick High Then sometime we'll remember The days that were spent Our dreams will be brighter And our hearts happier bent Then off we shall go Into this world full of woe With hope of success in our life PAGE SEVEN TLC S7S'AilWlQ z 1934 CLASS WILL We. the Senior Class of 1934 of Natick High School, being of sound and disposing minds, do hereby in the presence of our parents. teachers. and friends declare this document to he our last Will and Testa- ment after all our legal debts and ex- penses have been paid: To the Sophomores we leave our alnaz- ing scholastic ability and undying scnool spirit.

To Miss Nutt we leave a massive door- stop to l'elp her with the heavy fire-door outside of Room 22. To Miss Scott we leave a cast as tal- ented. amusing and dramatic as that of "Strawberry Kate."

To Miss Young we leave a quiet home- room class so she will recover from the nervous strain ot' looking at'ter her amus- ing one this year.

I, Boyd Snell, leave my pleasing manners also my bravery and courage to take in- oculations to Richard Ormand.

Place: Hotel Hamilton. Situated on Lake Cochituate, famous summer resort. Hazel: I'd like to see the manager of this hotel about accommodations for this coming week. Andy: Here I am. ls there something I can do for you? Hazel: Andy Bismark of all people. What are you doing here? Andy: Well it's like this--l'1n the owner of this hotel. Hazel: That's fine Andy. Have you seen any of our classmates lately? Andy: Ishould say I have. Some of the gang are here right now. Nelson Brown is my assistant and Louis Balcom and Joe Angelo are the caretakers. Here is Raymond Liddell, ont of our bell hops, coming back with the morning paper. Don't you want to take a look at it? Hazel: Yes, l always look at the 'ads' first though, to see if there are any bar- gains. What's this? "Wave-set by Ruth Doherty. Guaranteed to Last Two Weeks." I'll bet it's good. As I remember she al- ways did have perfect waves: and look at this "Skin Soap" advertised below by Hu- gena Dunbar. Andy: But you didn't notice the most important thing. The paper is edited by William Burleigh, and it's called "Natick Through a Key Hole." Ada Harris is the cartoonist. By the way, what have you been doing? Hazel: Oh, I've just returned from a trip around the world. In india I met Robert Thomas. He's trying to follow in Ghandi's footsteps, but hasn't made much progress. He told me Frances Whalen was in Turkey working up a movement for the abolishment of harems. Andy: That is news--but listen to this. It's worth hearing. John Mitchell is run- ning against "Mo Mo" Featherman for Mayor of Natick and Pearl Gainsley and Evelyn Hilt are their campaign managers. You should have been in town last week. A big knot was tied. Hazel: For goodness' sake Andy, what kind of a knot. Tell me quickly! Andy: Well, Walter Bell and Frances Gerrity and Marjorie Bernard and Lloyd Blanchard were married at a double wed- ding. Carlo Bianchi and Gracie Palladino stood up for them all. You know Carlo is a great wrestler and Gracie is his Illall- ager. Did you meet any other classmates in your travels? Hazel: Yes, Anastasia Jordan and Pat Barnicle. Tl1ey're modeling for Ronald Johnson and Bob Peoples, who are well- known Parisian Artists. Andy: Really, isn't that splendid? Yes- terday I heard that Dot Thayer and John Rotchford had been assigned a new con- PAGE NIN ld fze .QA,gY.gA!'WQN - 1934 tract by "Stanley Bleasdale Studios." They will have the leads in "You've Got To Be Rugged." Hazel: Isn't that nice? 1 met Doris Buckler in New York. She, Arlene Casa- vant and Elsie Brown run a big apartment house. and John Duff is their janitor. How about Joe Corrigan? VVhat's he doing now? Andy: He and "Sibber" Grassey are owners of a circus. It is in town this week, and their star attraction is Walter Whitaker as toe dancer. Demetre Petro does the Flying Trapeze Act, and Arthur Palli is the Human Cannon Ball. You'd better see this circus before you town. Hazel: Don't worry. I wouldn't miss it for the world. I saw a good one while I was in Paris. I also met Dot Prime and Phyllis Roach there. They are models in an exclusive gown shop. Dot told me that during a trip to China she saw Dot Charl- ton and Clara Bremner who are Red Cross nurses. Andy: Did you know that my nephew goes to Harvard and he has "Reggie" Wil- liamson and Harold Hall as professors? Hazel: Really. That reminds me. "Sis" Gilleran married a wealthy broker, who was a Harvard man, and she spends her winters in Palm Beach. At last she's ful- filled her desire to be a lady of leisure. She wrote and told me that she attended a recent dance, and was quite surprised to find "Went" Quast, and his snappy dance orchestra, playing for the season at one of the leading hotels. Eddie Liscombe is the pianist, and Helen Hladick the torch singer. Eddie Meek is causing quite a sensation as a violinist. Andy: Good for Quast-- I knew he'd get ahead. A few days ago l had to go to Bos- ton on business, and while in town I hired a taxi. To my surprise there was Joe .len- nings as my driver. We were speeding along and were stopped by Francis Daley, a city policeman. He drove me to the court house, and whom should I see, but llcrbis- Parmeuter on the .ludge's bench. Un glancing around I noticed Evalyn Ernst as court ste-nographer and Tony Evangelista, her assistant. Edgar lVlat- the-ws, thc big boss politician, tried to PA G li 'I' HN fix it up, but he didn't have the power he thought he had so I paid a ten dollar fine. Hazel: Next time you get "pinched" get Dan Garvey to fix it up, because he s got a "pull" in Boston. Andy: Did you read in the paper last week about the train wreck? "Bo Bo" Snell was the engineer. It was quite a wreck. They called Helen DeLuca and Louise DeWitt who are trained nurses, and for a moment they thought they'd have to call Francis Lynch, the only undertaker in the city: but Gertrude Brophy, the leading doctor, happened along and took care of the injured. John Mackin, a traveling salesman, who was also on the train, prov- ed to be the hero of the wre-ck. Hazel: Oh that's too bad. l'll have to go to see John and get the story. What a surprise I got when I heard that Gladys Moore and Jimmy Wheeler were married immediately after high school. They are now living in California. Jimmy has made a great deal of money lately and Frank Murphy is their chauffeur. Speaking of matrimony Eleanor Long, Helen Hogan and Helen McCor1nack run a matrimonial bureau in New York. They say that re- cently business isn't so good. I heard from Helen the other day. She said Kay McDaniels, Alice McGrath and Marjorie Graye stopped in to see them on their way to Hollywood. Kay married a ball player from Dartmouth and they were going to see him play ball in Hollywood. Andy: Oh yes, last week I visited Braves Field and I found that the Natick Ath- letics. a fine. team, was coached by Jerra Carey and his assistants were Dana Thorpe and Joe Sullivan. Bob McNichols is the star outfielder and Lawrence Kimball makes a very good umpire, John Downing is the pitcher. Hazel: I always knew "Jerra" would be in the big-league some day. Whatever be- came of some of the quieter members of the class? Andy: Edward Murphy. the Einstein of our class, and Francis McAllen, have just returned from Mars in the new flying ma- chine they invented. Guy Heald and How- ard Hedderig, well-known astronomers, also took the trip. They refuse, however, to make any report on it. The SMISISYAIJWQXV Z 1934 Hazel: By the way Andy, did I tell you I met Virginia Guthrie? She has estab- lished a "Prep" School in Natick, and im- mediately produced a circular. I have it here in my bag. It says, "A Splen- did Course Offered for Girls-Individual Instructions in Riding and Tennis." Here are the Faculty Members: Virginia Guthrie, Dean, ,Dorothy Whit- tier, Assistant Dean: Rita Shea, Latin: Mary Griflin, Sewing: Helen Johnson, Shorthand: Loretta Gauthier, History: Estelle Field, English: Katherine Kennedy. Riding Instructor: Eleanor Osol, Algebra: Esther Pineo, Tennis Instructor. Andy: That should be a good school! If I remember correctly Dot Whittier made quite a name for herself and with her able assistance I'm sure the school . will be a success. The other day Nelson Sabean dropped in to see me. He is now a wealthy oil man in Oklahoma, and Richard and Malcom Johnson are oil dealers in his concern. Elsie Morrill, Marjorie Squires and Mary Johnston manage the advertis- ing for him. Hazel: That reminds me Marie Nichols and Phyllis Noyes have just established a Children's Hospital and Grace Elkerton and Virginia Felch are nurses. Andy: Downtown at the Rose Quatralle Individualistic Theatre, the people are going wild over a new attraction. It's none other than the "l'eppy Trio." Henry John- son, Pianist: James Shagoury, Harpist: and Fred Ruland, Soloist. Hazel: That does sound peppy. Did you know that Ellen Casey is the manufac- turer for the Casey Spray Cranberry Sauce, Louise Snow and Helen Randall are tes- ters, and that Helen Stubbs and Mary Kelly are carrying on a campaign to do away with elevated cars in West Natick, because they want to keep that part of the city residential. Andy: Seems to me I heard about the campaign. That is a noisy elevated car I rode down to West Natick center in the other day. I talked to Robert Coleman the conductor. He said that the Elevated Company has hired Dot Edwards and Mary Grupposo to organize a campaign against Mary and Helen--looks as though the Ele- vated Company would win. Hazel: I think it was in West Natick that I met Harriet Keniston. She was telling me that she's taken over her father's jewelry business and that all the jewels put in the watches were mined by Joe Parrinello. Helen lVIoir and Martha Kunz are her saleswomen. Andy: Did Harriet tell you about Jack- son Wignot. traveling around to the large cities giving lectures on "The Influence or Athletics on Character Development?" They say his speeches are well wo1'th lis- tening to. Hazel: I've attended one of his lectures and found it very interesting. On the way lpassed the Biscuit Factory owned by Virginia and Eleanor Mullen. I thought I'd droppin and see if I could speak to the girls. As I entered the otlice, I was stop- 1.ed by Avis Viles, manager of the firm. She was, of course. glad to see ine. and told me that Martha Weatherby and Vir- ginia Huntoon had made good as brain specialists at the "Amy Gordon Sanito- rium." Andy: Virginia Fair, the most famous woman flyer in Natick, took me for a spin over the sanitorium, so I could get a. good look at it. We also flew over the "Bar- bara Bennett Piano Company." It is a huge factory. Hazel: O dear, I guess members of our class are to be found in all parts of the world. Who'd ever think that Daisy lvlan- gle and Dot Stocker. those two quiet girls of our class, would go to the Malay Jungle to convert savages and Gracie Feeley would be the President of NV. T. Grant Stores? Hazel: Oh, did you hear that Esther Prescott and Catherine Rice entered a dancing contest. sponsored by the Quatrale Theatre? Andy: Oh yes, I heard about it, and I wish them luck. By the way, Mildred Doyle and Clarice Dearborn own a cocoa- nut plantation in Hawaii and when I was last talking to them they were buying a few supplies to take back with them. Hazel: Well, I must be going up. ' Andy: We must meet again tomorrow. Perhaps some of our classmates would like to hear about the activities of those who have left Natick. PAGE ELEVEN TM - Sff-4lfWQ!V : 1934 SALUTATORY Parents. Teachers, Students and Friends: It is my privilege and honor to welcome you to the commencement exercises of the class of nineteen hundred thirty-tour. In behalf of my classmates I invite you to partake of our joy and exult with us in the triumphant accomplishment of our first basic objective. We have reached the summit of the first hill and we stop to admire the world from our vantage point and to orient ourselves in our new position. From here there are many path- ways into the valley of the world. Some of us are to enter into the valley by routes which, seen from here, appear to be the best to take us into the world. Others will climb another hill in education. hoping to find a route through fields and over shady roads. Others will lead through swamp land and quicksand. But whichever road we take, we cannot tui'1i back to start anew. We must choose our road wisely and well and set out with all possible de- termination and speed. In our days in school we were taught the principles of democratic government and we absorbed the ideals of American liberty. We learned cooperation and team- work through our participation in sports. VVe wei'e acquainted with the problems of our political world and prepared to be in- telligent voters. We are about to cross into a new world, our world, a world that will be what we make it. We must find a place in the in- dustry ofthe world that is now in the throes of an economic chaos. It will be our job to help solve its problems and preserve its democracy. We will leave behind us all but memo- ries of our life spent as students of Natick High. Some of us may not have labored as hard we should have and may feel a little doubtful as to the success of our high school careers, but if one has secured a real, true friend, who can say that his time was wasted? And so once more I ask you to rejoice with us, as, nervously expectant. we wait the tinal step that will make the class of PAGE TVVELVIC nineteen hundred thirty-four alumni of Natick High School. VALEDICTORY And now the time has come when we, as a class, must say goodbye to our loved high school and our many friends. For twelve years we have traveled the same path, but today brings us to our first cross road and we must stop to contemplate as to which way we shall take. Some of us will go on to further our education, and others will find their niche in the business world. Whichever it is, new friends will be found and new opportunities opened to those who aspire to them. Everyone is seeking something. That something is often very elusive and is al- ways just beyond one's reach. To almost everyone that desire is tor success, either for mercenary reasons. or merely personal glory. The idea behind all our studying has been that we should one day achieve something. All about us today we can see examples of successfully spent lives in our great statesmen, our rich philanthropists. our inventors and scientists. They have given us practically everything to make living and working just a little easier, and to give us more time for leisure and recrea- tion. They have torn the mist of super- stition and fear away from the common facts about our life and the universe. Yet, with all their marvelous inventions they have not found a way to prevent war, and stop people's hatred of each other. We are still suffering from the effects of the last war. The economic situation of the civilized world is deplorable. Why? Main- ly because people who have done things have done them for fame or to obtain money enough to get for themselves every manner of luxury. And luxury makes for selfish, discontented people. The situation is slowly improving and order is slowly evolving from chaos. We have become so used to a jumbled state of affairs that now that this so-called de- pression is being dissipated, we must once more adjust ourselves to prosperity. p The SASYAJWQN .1 193+ Capitalists are giving the laborer better wages, and the consumer is getting fairer prices. These changes are coming about because people are beginning to see that others have to be depended upon and have to be considered. Tllrougliout our school days we have taken liberally of the services which have been offered us by our parents and teach- ers. Nothing has been asked in return ex- cept that we make the most oi opportuni- ties which they have given us. Most of us can honestly say that we have tried to do our best in everything we have attempted, that we may in some measure return a portion of that which we have received. We, the Class of 1934, say "Farewell" with fond memories and tender love for the Alma Mater, whose motto has ever been, "I Serve." EVALYN G.

R - J'3ii ,g E FWVT' ,U THE GROWTH OF THE PANAMA CANAL Even before Columbus came to the West Indies, there was a legend among the na- tives that there was a strait through which one could pass directly into the waters of the Pacific Ocean. At that time maps not only showed the land that had been dis- covered, but also the land that was sup- posed to be there. On these maps the strait was always shown. After Colum- bus. came Balboa. the discoverer of the Pacific Ocean. Curiously enough the leg- end still existed and Balboa believed it just as Columbus had, and that was prob- ably the reason why he explored so dili- gently through that region. The first proposer of the Panama Canal was Hernando Cortez, the conqueror ot Mexico. He was sent by his monarch Charles V of Spain to find the strait that was supposed to exist. Failing to find this strait. he proposed to build a strait that would connect the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean, but his work was cut short by the treachery of hisfollowers. He encouraged his cousin to carry out his plans for a canal. His cousin drew up plans and intended to present them to the king but he diled before his plans were realized. His' plans called for routes through what is now Darien, Nicaragua, Tehuantepec. and Panama. The Spanish king looked into the project and after con- ferring with his friars, stopped all work on the canal, and quoted from the Bible, "What God hath joined together, let no nzan put asunderf' The French attempt was first suggested by Count Ferdinand de Lesseps, the noted builder of the Suez Canal, and a commit- tee met at Paris at which nearly all na- tions were represented. The Committee believed that the approximate cost of the canal would be ii324.000,000. The com- pany went under the title, 'Tampagne Universelle du Canal Interoceanique de Panama." At the first excavation in May, 1832 the company was assembled to wit- ness the formal opening and the Bishop of Panama was to give his blessing. A tre- mendous charge of dynamite was to be ex- ploded, but when the time came for it to go off there was no explosion. Something went wrong. This beginning was typical of the whole French attempt. The work was pushed ahead vigorously by deLessnps, but serious obstacles began to arise, which had been foreseen by the trained engineers who opposed de Lessups plan from the start. It was evident that it was impossible to carry out the original plan, therefore, the company being so seriously hampered re- sorted to irregular and corrupt practices. In time all were exposed. and de llesseps returned to France where he was dis- graced and 1-ndcd his remarkable career PAGE FIFTEISN j Tze - 1934 j by dying in an insane asylum. The origi- nal plan of de Lesseps was to have a sea- level type of canal, but it was soon found that it would not be practical, and it was decided to change to a lock type. but the change came too late. The company de- clared itself to be bankrupt in 1887. The whole story of the French attempt may be summed up in one statement, "Eighty million cubic yards of earth had been ex- cavated at a cost of 3S260,000,000." That was 320,000,000 more than the committee had said the entire project would cost. A new Panama Canal Company was or- ganized in 1894 and work went along favorably with all the assets and proper- ti-es of the old company being transferred to the new one. Meanwhile public senti- ment in the United States had been strong- ly impressed with a desire for a canal across the Isthmus under American con- trol, and in December 1898 a full report of the Technical Committee of the French Company was presented to President Mc- Kinley. In order to have American control ot canal rights, the permission of Columbia was necessary because, Panama was a pro- vince of Columbia. Columbia did not agree to American terms but Panama did. The Panama proposition looked hopeless until something speedily happened. On November 3, 1903, Panama revolted and severed a connection of eighty-two years with Columbia. The Columbian govern- ment could do nothing but quickly agree. After Panama had been recognized by a number of nations, United States bought the canal rights from the French company, and drew up a treaty with the Republic of Panama. From the time that the treaty was rati- fied by both countries, work on the canal went rapidly forward. The United States had to compete with the same obstacles as the former companies. Both the preced- ing companies had been seriously handi- capped by the numerous cases of Malaria that had reduced the laborers by thous- ands. The first step the United States took was to, literally, "clean up Panama. ' Many doctors were sent by the government to find the cause of the deadly disease, and many lives were risked in experiment- PAGE SIXTEEN ing, before it was discovered by doctors, Finley and Ross, that the female Anophe- les mosquito was responsible for the high death rate of the people of Central Ameri- ca. The quarters of the laborers were as comfortable as the homes of the white residents, all rooms were screened in to protect the occupants from the malaria gerin. The streets of the city were paved and kept as clean as the streets of Ameri- ca. No more refuse was thrown out on the streets, as was done in former times. Electric lights and water systems were in- stalled, and one could drink from a foun- tain in the center of Panama, without the least fear of Malaria, for the water was clear spring water, which was piped in from mountain springs, far from Panama. The Panama Canal is of great value to the world. It saves a long, hard trip of over three thousand miles around Cape Horn. and although it was a great expen- diture to the United States, it gave the country the power and jurisdiction over the greatest canal, in the world. The cost of a ship passing through the canal, costs about 51.20 per ton, and takes about ten hours to cover the stretch of fifty miles from deep water to deep water. The Pan- ama Canal zone extends five miles on each side of the canal, and is under the control of the American government, but the re- public of Panama is governed by its own constitution, which was drawn up just at- ter they revolted against Columbia in 1903. MAURICE FEATHERMAN RADIUM In 1896 a Frenchman, Henri Becquerel. discovered that something resembling X-rays is radiated by some minerals, such as pitchblende, that contain aranium. He also found that if he wrapped a photo- graphic plate ln black paper and placed it near one oi these minerals a shadow photograph would be formed of any dense object which intervened. This quality or certain minerals is called radioactivity. Shortly after this, three French chem- ists. M. G. Belmont, and Monsieur and Madame Curie found that thorium pos- Le 5'fl5'S'A1 WGN z 1934 sessed the same property. They dis- covered, however, that pitchblende, a min- eral from Austria, was more radioactive than an equal amount of either uranium or thorium. Observing this peculiarity they decided that pitchblende must contain some substance far more radioactive than any element known to science. Madame Curie experimented for several months and finally in 1898 she succeeded in sepa- rating from the pitchblende a minute quan- tity of this radioactive substance in a fair- ly pure state. She found it to be an en- tirely new element and she named it "ra- dium." Radium is a silvery-white metal which tarnishes very quickly when exposed to the air. Any substance under the influ- ence of its rays becomes a conductor of electricity. Radium decomposes water very rapidly in a manner similar to elec- trolysis. The metal is very rarely ob- tained in the pure state, but is kept in the form of a bromide or chloride salt. Today most of the radium produced comes from deposits of pitchblende found in the Belgian Congo region of Africa. Pitchblende is an oxide of uranium and is about fifty per cent pure. There are some smaller deposits in other parts of the world, but they are not large enough to compete with the mines in the Congo. For a few years it was thought that pitch- blende was the only mineral that contained radium, but after experimenting, scientists found that other compounds of uranian principally carnotite found in Utah and Colorado, and autunite found in Portufral contained radium. Radium is so rare that it takes about five hundred tons of carnotite to produce one gram of radium. When the cost of hundreds of tons of chemicals, coal and distilled water is added to that of mining the carnotite it can be easily seen why ra- dium is an expensive metal. Extracting the metal is a very tedious process and each producer has his own system. but in general the methods arc similar and have the same rules: First: The uranium mineral compound is put into solution. Second: All the metallic sulphates which are insoluble in water are separated from the solution. tThese include all the barium and radium salts.J Third: The sulphates are converted into double salts. Fourth: The barium and radium com- pounds are purified. Fifth: By fractional crystallization the radium is separated from the barium. Radioactive elements emit rays and dis- These. intigrate to form other substances. if they are radioactive minerals or gases, disintigrate to form a third product, which also changes. This makes a series called a disintegration series which continues uu- til some substance which is not radio- active is produced. Radium is member of such a series called the uranium-radium- lead disintegration series. Uranium disintegrates and forms an en- tirely new substance, known to science as uranium X1 this in turn forms uranium X2, and this process continues until radi- um, the sixth member of the series appears. Radium goes on to make radon, but when lead is produced the series stops as lead is not radioactive. Each of the members of the series lasts for a certain length of time before it has entirely disintegrated, and of the series uranium has the longest life. lt lasts eight billion years. This means that every year one eighth billionth part of each molecule of uranium disintegrates and forms a new substance, uranium X1. All radioactive elements emit three rays: first, the alpha rayg second, the beta ray: and third, the gamma ray. Use is made of these rays in medical works in an attempt to cure such diseases of the flesh as tumors, cancers, and corns. and to remove scars. The rays reduce the number of corpuscles in the flesh and burn the tissues of the body which are exposed to the radium. The reason it is effective is that healthy tissues are form four to seven times as resistant to the rays as diseased tissues and do not burn so quick- ly. As yet there is no positive proof that this treatment with radium heals cancer. but it is known that it relieves the pain in cancerous conditions. The less pure salts of radium are some- times used to make luminous paint for PAGE SlQVEN'1'EhJN ffze gfqcgyfqzt : 1934 coating watch dials. The luminous ma- terial which is used is a mixture of radi- um and a special preparation of zinc sul- phide. The reason that it can be used so extensively on cheap watches is that only about one millionth of a gram of radium is needed to coat the average watch dial. As radium is a very rare metal, con- sequently it is very expensive. The radi- um produced in the Belgian Congo mines in Atrica costs seventy thousand dollars a gram. As only the rays of radium are used in curing diseases. the metal itself may be used over and over. Because of this, radium banks have been established R in many of the large cities of the world where a minute glass tube of radium may be rented at the rate of fifty dollars a day. Today there are about three Pounds ot radium in the world which have been ex- tracted from the ore and are in a form suitable for use. Scientists hope to find a way of increas- ing the rate of disiutigration of uranium and thereby obtain large quantities of radium. but this might not be safe for civilization, as the rays of radium are so destructive to all types of plants and ani- mals.

Coach Donahue had six regulars answering the first call. The team formed by Coach Donahue was a fine one considering the lack of funds and of a suitable playing field. The team went along defeating all com- ers until they met Norwood, who set Na- tick back twice. Their third defeat came at the hands of our old rival, Framingham by a sc-ore of S-7. All three of these were rl:-rcifled in extra inning games. Coach Donahue deserves great praise for the good showing of this team. We hope that hw- will continue to have many win- ning ball tvanis. 15915-4 SCHIQDULE Natick 2 Dedham 1 Natick 12 Holliston U Natick 15 Net-dham 5 Natick 4 Vt elleslcy 0 l'Af1l-I 'VNV ENT Y Natick 6 Norwood 110 inningsl Natick 13 Holliston Natick 20 Needham Natick 5 Wellesley Natick 2 Norwood 111 inningsl c Natick 7 Framingham 412 inningsj Natick Z Waltham Natick 7 Dedham Natick 2 Framingham .., TRACK The track team wnich functioned for the first time last year has a larger schedule this year.

The League started out the year with Volley Ball and class teams were chosen. In the finish playoff. the Sophomores were the victors. With the coming of Basket-ball season nine teams were picked. Each team played every other team and in the end the Sen- iors were the winners. Then class teams were picked and they played Needham here. The Sophomores were the only ones able to take the Needhamites with the Juniors and Senior team losing to tllem. There came stiff Competition when the Varsity was being chosen. However the girls who worked the hardest finally won out.. The Varsity lineup was as follows: l.f. Rita Shea tCap't.l Helen Hladlek r.f. Clara Bremner je. Dorothy Prime s.c. Alice 1N1CGl'?llll l.g. Frances Gerrity ing. Cora Feathers This Varsity team played Norwood at Norwood but after a hard struggle lost. Another class game was held. this time with Framingham. The Seniors and Sophonlores held up Natick's end this time. but the Junior's lost. The last game of the season was played with the Alulnni. That was one of the most exciting games. It was close all the way through. but near the end, the Alum- ni sank a winning basket. The basketball season ended with every- one agreeing that it was an enjoyable one.

THE STUDENT COUNCIL The election of the Student Council members for the year was held during the sezond week of school in September. The following officers were elected at the first regular meeting: President-Francis Carey Viee-lfresident-Mary Gilleran Secretary-Hazel Hurst Treasurergwentworth Quast The first duty of the Board was the supervision of the election of the Sassamon Board. The social event of the Student Council, the annual Football Dance, was held on December 4 and was well attended by the student body. Much of our time this year was given to choosing a design for a school ring and to devising ways and means for raising money for the athletic association in order that Baseball might continue. TENNIS The tennis team with "Andy" Bismarlt and "Bobo" Snell as standonts have a num- ber of games with teams of the surround- ing towns. "Andy" Bismarli is the cap- tain. Home games are played at the Na- tick Tennis Club. GOLF The golf team has arranged several games with the surrounding towns. Home games are played at Sandy Burr. Those returning from last year's team include: Captain John Mitchell, Joe Burgess, "Bud" Mctilone and A. Zieito. PANIC FOIITY-ONl'l The S7fi.Qgf4lfWQ!V : 1934 ,1..,..l.-,.,..Y .

SENIOR PLAY The Senior Play was held on Friday evening, April 6, at Junior High and was attended by a full house. The play, direc- ted by Miss Louise Scott, was supported by a fine cast including: Dorothy Thayer as the heroine, "Strawberry Kate." who proved exceedingly fine. Mary Gilleran proved a worthy actress in the role of "Hazel Downing," a charming young lady. who is attracted by Vventworth Quast as "Charlie Grainger." He, together with "Bob" Crawford. enacted by John Hotch- ford as hero, are suspected as being straw- berry thieves. Amusing complications PAH IC IPUICTY-'1' WU arose in which Andy Bismark proved to be a real comedian as "Tommy Meadows." He was immensely interested in "Chrysan- themum Klots," played by Dorothy Ed- wards. Alice McGrath played beaming Minnie Holzapple who, after many mishaps finally procured her "husband," Dorothy Prime enacted haughty, snobbisli Gwen- d-olyn Norton, and Martha Weatherby was Bob Crawford's gleeful little sister, Betty. Daisy Mangle ably took the part of Mrs. Winton, and Joseph Angeleri as Ezra Nor- ton, who would gyp his best friend. John Mitchell also earned his honors as the "small town" constable. The play was said to be one of the best that Natick High School has ever produced. The SMISTSYAIJWQXV z 1934 ORCHESTRA Back Row-J. Armenio, R. Guarino, J. Healy, W. Greene, J. Bell, G. Parker, W.

STRING QUARTET The String Quartet was this year organ- ized in February with Edward Meek, lst Violinistg George Parker, 2nd Violinistl Eugene lVlcMahan, Viola: and Mildred Bac- kus, Cello. They have been pursuing the traditional courses of quartet music written by the old masters, and prepared several numbers for the annual spring concert held at the Senior High School on May 25. The object of the String Quartet has been to secure in finer musicianship for its members the understanding and appre- ciation of good music and performance in small ensemble. The members of this String Quartet have attended rehearsals very icgularly, and their efforts and hard labor were re- vealed in the fine performance which they gave in the Suite Ancienne by Sl. tleorge at the concert. SENIOR RECEPTION The Seniors were assisted in receiving their guests at Reception on Friday even- ing, June fifteenth in the Armory by Mr. and Mrs. Clifford R. Hall, Mr. and Mrs. Roy VV. Hill, Mrs. VVilliam Carey, Mrs. Andrew Bismark, Mrs. Joseph Rott-hford. Miss Emily Shannon. Miss Grace Church and Miss Margaret Cellarins. PAGE FORTY-FI YE Tflze ,Qf4eQeQAfWQ Xi : 1934 Lf l GLEECJJHS The Glee Club was organized early in September by Miss Lydia Tolander. The club met Mondays and Tuesdays, spending their time in preparing to pro- vide entertainment for our assemblies and for many outside gatherings. From this group a single and a double quartet of boys have made several ap- pearances and have been enthusiastically received. BAND This year, as in the past, the band was organized by Mr. Burke and performed at all home games with great skill. Rehearsals were held every Wednesday morning during the year and judging from the number of band members receiving their letters they are all hard workers. PAILH FOHTY-SIX JUNIOR Paoivi The annual Junior Promenade held this year at the Coolidge Junior High was soc- ially and financially a success. 'The Juniors were assisted in receiving their guests by Mr. Harold Johnson. chair- man of the School Committee: Mr. Roy Hill and Miss Jane Carrick of our facultyg Mrs. George Fair, Mrs. John Denny, Mrs. William Carey and Mrs. William Allen, parents of class oiiicers, and the class ofli- cers. Music was furnished by the Teddy- Bears, a broadcasting orchestra from W. E. E. I. and the hall was tastefully deco- rated with the school colors. Much credit for the success of the party is due to the able direction of Miss Flor- ence Belliveau, and Miss Elizabeth Mur- phy, class advisors. and hard-working student committees.

SASSAMON BOARD This year, as in the past, the Sassamon has succeeded in winning recognition at the Scholastic Press Association Contest held every year at Columbia University. New York City. Natick High may well be proud of this prize as our school was one of the three Massachusetts high schools with a 300- 800 enrollment to receive an award. Not being superstitious the Board held the annual Sassamon Dance 011 Friday, the 13th of April. With wonderful music and a fine crowd. those present enjoyed them' selves immensely at what turned out to be one of the social highlights of thc year.
