It is ailpropriate at this time that we call to mind the patience and advice of the teachers who guided us through these twelve years that we might obtain an edu- cation worthy of our school and our com- munity. The appreciation and encourage- ment of our parents has a place in our hearts as we gather here today. Study and ambition have brought ns to this goalg our youth and confidence will aid us to paramount success. Again, on behalf of my classmates, I ex- tend to you sincere and hearty welcome to the Class Day Exercises of nineteen hun- dred and thirty-six. ROBERT MCGONVAN use HI gin. Just prior to Calvin Coolidge's election to the Presidency, a group of some two hundred six-year olds were enrolled in eight grammar schools. This initiatory step by fond parents created what is today one of Natic-k's outstanding associations- the Flass of '36. Thus the embryo of a thriving group of citizens originated. lluring the period antedating 1930 this uuknit but flourishing organization surged through the primary grades. We swept down upon the Junior High School with our tal:-ute-d horde: not too promptly re- cognized. perhaps. but nevertheless a group to bt- reckoned with. In the eighth grade, bf-hind our able champion, Miss Finn, we made a mark for ourselves. As the haughty sf-niors of that establishment we were un- parallf-lf-d by any class before or since. PAGE FOVK Then. simultaneously with the New Deal. leaving our unblemished record be- hind us. we advanced on the Higli School. Alas! here we received a temporary set- back. It is true that for a time our cocki- ness deserted us, and we were properly im- pressed with the serenity of this great seat of learning. We were hardly so audacious, ratl1er we were somewhat meek in the face of its dignified corridors and awesome in- habitants. These consisted of the clamor- ous juniors above and the imperturbabLe seniors below. The following months were marked by strange exacting labor and novel conscientiousness of effort which had never before shown itself. This, and an uncanny desire to co-operate, were appar- ent during our sophomore year. As juniors the class became acquainted with someone totally different as a teacher than we had previously encountered-Mr. Howard Leahy. His progressive ideas greatly enhanced the school s capacity to educate. During the year we really organized our classg the natural leaders asserte-d them- selves and we elected Tom McCormick, president: Robert McGowan, vice presi- dentg Victory Hill, secretary. and Vincent Saunders, treasurer. This fact, combine-d with the outstand- ing play of the members of our class on the football team, considerably revived our fallen demeanor. From this time on we duly exemplified the model junior class- our grades suffered correspondingly. But through it all our undeniable talent show- ed itself. The Prom was the highlight of the year socially, and our executive board deserves much praise for the financial and social success of that affair and their hard work on all that has come up since. In the fall oif 1935 our senior year be- gan and too, the double session plan went into effect. Unfortunate as this may seem. it presented the chance to show the irue calibre of our class. Co-operating in the crisis with an efficient faculty, our class has maintained the standards of Natick High. The SAISSAJWQN g 1936 Upon returning we found that several of our class-mates had dropped out as in other years, for one reason or another. In the election of this year Ro-bert Mc- Gowan was elected president, Robert Gay, vice-presidentg Victory Hill, secretary, and Vincent Saunders, treasurer. A successful gridiron season was enjoyed this year. The season was saddened by the death of Jack Fenwick, Wellesley player, who was injured on Columbus Day. It was capped by a disaplpoiniting but hard- fought contest with our arch rival, Fra- mingham, on Turkey Day. To bring further credit to our class the basketball and baseball teams were un- usually good. "Adam and Eva," the se- nior play which was presented, easily came up to the high standard which has been held by past performances. This year marked the firlst initiation and organiza- tion -of our chapter of the National Honor Society. With Commencement Week comes the sadness olf leaving High School and all that meant so much to us. After the re- ception Friday evening and graduation on Sunday, we will have only memories of our school and our companions, to be with us as we do what is exlpecrted of us-achieve unprecedented things in higher education and in life. ARTHUR HARRINGTON CLASS SONG The room is filled with marching airs The class walks. down the aisle in pairs Th-e strains olf the song seem to fill the air And it fills the hearts of the people there. Under the ceiling of this stage, A vow is made to turn a page. Our faces are smiling, our heads held high, But underneath it's all a lie. Not one of that hundred and eighty-five Really want to leave the rest of the hive. To think that never again there will be That getting together for you and me. Twelve years are spent. Think now what they've meant To all of us sitting here. We look around to discover, perhaps a falling tear. We try to be gay and do our part But everyone knows life is about to start. We look into the faces that have already been through the mill, And it gives us courage, determination and will. Old Dad's out there and Mother, too. They've got through life, they'll help us through. One act has been played upon that stage That will live in our hearts for many an age. One goal has been reached, but there's many more. We'll face the world, the open door. No need to sigh and shake our head The thing to do is to go ahead. There's work to do, a life to live, Everything to get, and everything to give. Those castles in the air are worthless to you and me Unless under them a firm foundation be. CATHERINE CAMPBELL 1936 CLASS POEM VVe've sailed the seas together These years at Natick Highg Tonight we reached a harbor With both a smile and sigh. Annon we shall be sailing Across an unknown sea: Each and everyone alone- Guided by destiny. There always comes a moment Wlhen the best of friends must part But an element of sadness Now creeps into every heart. We say goodbye to those we leave And onward we will press: And someday may we anchor In the port that's called sur-cess. LILLIAN NELSON PAGE FIVE Tile ASSAIJWQN 5 1936 CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class of 1936, of Natick High School, still being infants in the eyes of the law, with sound and disposing minds and memories, hereby in the presence of our teachers and schoolmates, make, de- clare, and publish this document to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills, bequests. and devices, made by us.

To Mr. Woodbury we bequeath a large, leather briefcase to carry all his papers, pens, pencils, erasers, essays, homework. and credentials.

JAMES BOYD LOUISE GRADY SA LU TATORY Parents, Teachers and Friends: It is a great pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the Commencement Exer- cises of the Class oif 1936. This is the last time we shall appear before you as an in- tegral class. From here we go out into the world to become a part of society and demonstrate to society our appreciation for this education which we have received. A modern novelist has one of his char- acters say "Some people make the world. others just live in it." It is probable that we shall not all set out to make the world, but each of us can be successful in his own field, making his own world and receiving benefits proportional to the work he does. By work, I do not mean employed laborg the latter is making a livingg the former is making a life. Those who have done ex- ceptional work in school are not neces- sarily those who will succeed in life. Many great men had no brilliant school careers. We must not overlook the importance of school work for this reason, because the habit of indifference disintegrates stand- ards. We must remember the maxim "What I am to be I am now becoming." Therefore everything we do, including diligence or indolence in school, leaves its impression on our lives. But this question of success is more than work. Many fail through lack of purpose or ambition rather tlian lack of ability. Some would rather be satisfied with con- ditions as they are than work out their own problems. They become set, and cling to what Emerson called "foolish consist- ency." i Two shocks recently dealt to this stagna- tion were the World War and the financial depression. Henry Ford said. "War is a man-made affair-and tliere are men in the world who stir uep war for profit." The youth of the day bore the brunt of the bur- den, and in the following decade kept de- manding the reason for that slaughter. The depression seemed to culminate all the disasters possible to commerce. Young people turned from the study of cultural PAGE ELEVEN The ASSAXWQN z 1936 subjects to politics and economics, asking, "What is wrong with the world, with com- merce. with politics?" Previous generations have been slow in achieving perfection because they s-ought to change systems instead of individuals. We may not attain perfection, but I am confident that the High School graduates of today will do much more toward that end than their forelbears, for each gene- ration must imlprove upon the work of the last. The beautiful words of Louis Unter- meyer, warn us against this sluggishness: Ever insurgent let me be, Make me more daring than devout. From sleek contentment keep me free And fill me with a buoyant doulbt. Open my eyes to visions girt. With beauty and with wonder lit- But let me always sec the dirt And all that spawn and die in it. Open my ears to music: let Me thrill with Spring's first flutes and drums, But let me never dare forget The bitter ballad of the slums. From compromise and things half- done Keep me with stern and stubborn prideg And when at last the fight is won God, keep me still unsatisfied! And so we ask you to see our view- points, support us with your faith, embrace us in your understanding, and join with us now in this, one of the first of our lives' triumphs. GEORGE PARKER VALEDICTORY During the past few days we have heard the class history recounted, the prophecies for:-told. and the class will read. whereby we have bequeathed to those who succeed us the things which we are leaving behind, all this, of course, in a facctious mood. Today we find ourselves meeting for the PA G E TXV ICLV E last time as a class. We are standing on the threshold of .the great unexplored fu- ture, which has been termed the most ro- mantic part of life, and we are confronted with the task of meeting its problems not as a class. but as individuals. What are we to expect from the future? Life does not give us the things that we want, unless we go about getting them in the right wayg for life will give in return only in proportion to what we put into it. We shall be confronted by many difficult- ies, but we sliall build finer and stronger characters if we strive and win, and to ac- complish this requires courage, the kind of courage displayed by the pioneers of the early days starting on their hazardous journeys into unexplored regions, the cour- age that will keep us from losing heart when we meet the inevitable obstacles and disappointments that the future holds for us. Thus fortified, we shall become the kind of men and women who can take the blows that life will give us without flinch- ing. We will not be disheartened by toil or disapipointmentg we will never know despair. In the words of Browning, we shall "make of each stumbling-block a stepping-stone." With courage we must have foresight, which will enable us to avoid many pit- falls that will bestre-w our path. This fore- sight will help us to plan our lives intelli- gently and to know whither we are going. It will keep us from wasting important years and prepare us to make the most of whatever Oplfortunities we meet, for an op- portunity lost may change the course of a whole life. Our lives cannot, of course, be lived for and in ourselves alone. The interdepend- ence of human lives makes it essential that we all practice tolerance and co-operation. We must adapt ourselves to the people among whom we live, be bound by a kin- ship of kindness and loyalty, and imbued with a strong spirit of faith, faith in our- selves and in our fellow-men. Faith and hope are two great virtues which, if kept alive in our hearts, will pro- duce healthy minds. Minds which have a Arellay Salvie Aliena' Salvie D'OWl1ey, J. Tile AISSAJWQN z 1936 wholesome outlook on life are not so in- fluenced by the unpleasant phases of any event as to become morbid or cynical. A mind filled with faith and hope will, even in the face of disillusionments, persevere toward the fulfill-ment of its ideals. We should have acquired a foundation for all these attributes from our education and training in the school which we are now leaving. Through our academic pur- suits and by our social and recreational activities, we have been given the oppor- tunity of acquiring a well-rounded educa- tion. We have been taught the fundamen- tals of how to learn and to live, which if pursued with courage, foresight, co-opera- tion, faith, and hope should enable us to become uselful citizens and leaders of to- morrow. To our parents, our teachers, and our townsnpeople, who have made it possible for us to receive this education and thus pre- pare' us for the life which we take up to- morrow, we, the Class of 1936, extend our deepest gratitude as we bid farewell to Natick High School.

FOOTBALL The 15135 edition of Natick High's foot- ball team encountered considerable hard luck. Three overwhelming defeats, the dire:-t results of important injuries or broken moral, make an otherwise excellent record appear poor. The season began with a pair of wins. Then an unfortunate re- sult of the Wellesley game made way for a crushing defeat by Hudson. They came back to take a husky Milford team how- ever only to bow to Needhanrs revenge for last year. Thx- gganie with Norwood was marked by more than the usual hard-fougzlit contest. Aftrr scoring in t.l.f' first half the lied and PAGE I'IIIlHTl'Il'IN Blue finally allowed the superior weight of their opponents to tie the score. After a disappointing Dedham game came the most colorful battle with Framingham in years. A safety by the Blue and White initiated the scoring. But a beautiful pass gave Natick tlze edge again at 7-2. In the third period a perfectly executed drop-kick for a field goal by Fisher was nullified for offside. This heart-breaking play turned a sure victory back. In the final period Framingham scored again to defeat time Red and Blue. In the line the offensive play of our agressive leader Salvi Arena, the defensive work of our star center Martin Hall and in the baclcfield a doughty group of "four horsemen" all combined to make a fine teain.

Old records were shattered and new ones were estaiblislied by Henry Scott in the mile run with the time of 4 minutes 58 1-2 seconds. Klein and Wight in the 100-Yard Dash each timed 10 4-5 seconds. Johnson in the .shot-put distanced 39 feet 6 inches. In the pole vault Webster made 9 feet 1 inch. The requirement for a Natick record is that it is a first place and that it be made at Natick.

BASEBALL Natick High, playing its first ycar in the newly organized Bay State Baseball league. had fair success during the 1936 season. Captain John Downey was the only regu- lar to return and Coach Donahue was hard- pressed to produce a good team. However. he did produce a team which rated on a par with ally other entry in the loop. Sal- vie Arena was the first baseman. with "Bob" Mc-Gowan on second, "Roger" Marso at short and John Donahue on third. "Holm" Hall played left and "Marty" Hall right wliilc Captain Downey did a fine joh patrolling thc center garden. Others to I'.-V2 li 'VKX' l'lN'l'Y see service in the games were: "Bill" fDaley. Leo Bouret, Francis Corkery and "Sonny" LeC1air. "Buster" McNicho1s did the catching with John Downey, John In- ferrere, Paul Bremner, "Marty" Hladick and "Bill" Buckley. the pitchers. Coach Donahue produced a fine team from little material.

"ADAM AN D EVA" Despite old man weather's refusal to smile on February 14, 1936, the Senior Play, "Adam and Eva" was given as sched- uled and also presented the following lVIon- day. The play, under capable direction of Miss Mowry, was heralded as a huge success by amicable audiences. Supported by a well-chosen cast, Tom Daley as "Adam" and Evalyn Lacrosse as "Eva" proved their acting natures and abilities. Crabby Uncle Horace and inimit- able Aunt Afblby, acted by Joseph Powers and Adelaide Brophy, aided in giving the humorous touches to the play. 'ine love-sick team consisting of Julie and Clinton DeWitt was ably portrayed by Edith Tuplper and Robert Gay. As the head of the house, James King showed his family the way to give Adam a liberal edu- cation. The role of King was very credit- ably enacted by Eugene MalcMahan. Dr. Delamater, the family doctor, James Carey, was successvful in persuading Mr. King of his need of a vacation. but unsuccessful in winning Eva's hand. Also after this much- prized hand was the fortune-hunting Lord Andrew enacted by Richard Leavitt. Matters were brought to a climax by Corinthia, Marion Mullen, when she proves that Ada and Eva are really the right couple for each other. Lord Andrew gal- lantly admits this and leaves the audience with a gallant imtpression of him. Much praise is due to the cast and much credit is due to its coach and helpers. The play was rated as the "top" by several local newspapers and many people com- mented on its unusual per-formance. The play was written by Guy Bolton and George Middleton.
