In behalf of the students and faculty I wish to extend to you a most cordial welcome. Today will mark one of our last times together, and the day would not be complete unless we expressed our gratitude to our parents, teachers, and friends who have in every way aided us in our progress during the past twelve years. Shortly we will start out into the world leaving our school-days, classmates and joyful memories behind. This departure tends to sadden us, yet the feeling of our first triumph seems to offset this. But this is not the time to let sentiment interfere. We have too much to look forward to. VVe will have problems confronting us which must be solved. In view of this fact, we resolve, here and now, to try with thei greatest of determination to make our future a happy and successful one. ALFRED GRASSEY CLASS HISTORY It was September 1935. The long awaited day had at last arrived and we entered Natick High School with much anticipation. The three years ahead of us seemed, like a lifetime but today the last of these years for us is quickly drawing to a close. As Sophomores we experienced the feeling of beingl on the outside because it was in 1935 that the double session plan began. Some of us who took the college course were in the morning session but there were so few of us that we didn't seem to count at all. The boys and girls who were in the afternoon session just went to school-they had no activities and not even a representative in the Student Council but we all finally felt that we were a part of the school when we entered into the preparation of Christmas boxes for the needy of Natick. The remainder of the Sophomore year was un- eventful as we had no opportunity to enter into any of the school activities. As juniors we claimed a place of recognition. VVe selected Alfred Grassey, Edward Lee., Hester Pfeiffer and Rita Marciano to be our leaders and under their able leadership we entered into the activities of the school- The junior Prom was the highlight of this year and the climax of the year was the election of six 'juniors to the National Honor Society. They were Betty Graham, Ann Davis, Lois Forster, Emma Loring, Rita Marciano and Dorotry Bernstein. Wle returned from our last vacation ready to take our place as digni- fied Seniors. jimmie O'Regan, an outstanding scholar as well as athlete, led our football team through a successful season. Charlie McManus, our new coach, built up a fine defensive club. Only three of the opposing teams managed to cross our goal linen-Attleboro, Norwood and our old rival Fra- mingham. Our first social affair of the year was the Football Dance at which the co-captains for the following year were announcedl. During our Senior year two subjects created much interest namely, the selection of a new class ring and the point system. Both were acted upon by the entire student body. A new class ring was selected and the point system, whereby more students could participate in school activities and no Tl-I If I Q38 SASSAMDN TH If I 938 SASSAMUN one student can hold more than one major office, was put into effect. XYe have had two talent assemblies this year that were fascinating entertainment and were greeted with much enthusiasm by the entire school. The Class of '38 regrets that two of the teachers who started them on the road to learning are no longer faculty menrbers in Natick High. Miss Elva Coulter. head of the History department for many years, retired in De- cember and Miss lilizabeth Murphy a member of the Commercial department left us to teach at Regis College. XX'e as a class have missed their friendship and their guidance. Although Captain Louis Cardellicchio was the only member of the Tech Tourney Basketball team left from last year our basketball team turned in another brilliant season. Leonard Lawson has brought fame to our class. He was recently awarded a medal of bravery for saving a boy from drowning in Jennings Pond. Five members of the class gained recognition for their hockey play- ing-Captain Ferguson and Dave Moir were selected on the first All Star Team of The Eastern Massachusetts Hockey League and Gabby Gay. VVally Sabean and Art Deschamps made the second team. Our Senior Play, "Billy", played to a full house on April 29. Every Senior was on hand to witness an exceptionally fine performance. Many favorable comments were made on the scenery which was made by our class- mates under the direction of XYarren Vvinner. The Safety Council has continued its good work this year and a group of Seniors launched a drive to license all bicycles in Natick. This is a very important advancement in educating the young people of the town to recognize the importance of National Safety. There is much to come which cannot be recorded in this history but on June 10 the Armory will be decorated, strains of music will fill the hall as members of the Class of '38 bring their social activities to a close at our Senior Reception-then on Sunday. ,Iune l2 the Natick Theatre will be filled with our relatives and friends who will share with us the final meeting of the entire Class of '58 :Xfter the speeches and singing each member of the Class of '38 will receive his diploma and with the awarding of these diplomas the history of our Class comes to an end. CSignedD JOHN KLEINFELDER CLASS WILL X'Ve, the Class of l938 of the Natick High School, being in the eyes of our teachers possessed with great physical capacities, though lacking some- what in mentality, do therefore in the presence of this illustrious gathering make, ordain.. publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament, re- voking all previous documents, and requesting that it be dutifully carried out to its very last word, without any legal entanglementsi. To the Juniors we bequeath Rooms ll, 12, 18, l9, and 22, and also their respective teachers. We hope that they will love and cherish both the rooms and the teachers as we have. To Mr. Gardner we leave a little more blackboard room so he won't have to draw diagrams on the walls. To Mr. Bridey we leave a book entitled., "The Art of Telling Jokes." NVe suggest that l1e read it so tl1e fut11re classes won't l1ave to go througl1 what we suffered.

'l'o Miss Nutt we leave a large box of chalk with a ball Zlllil chain at- tached. To Mr. Hill we leave an a111plified telephone system to e11able llllll to hear NVl1El'C'S going o11 in Room 33 without climbing two flights of stairs. XYe. the Class of 1938, leave, through no fault of our own, a few of our classmates to graduate with the succeeding class-tif they are luckyyj To Mr. XVoodbury we leave o11e john McManus to fill the sl1oes of the fellow wl1o still does 11ot k11ow anything abo11t automobiles, Loyal Lis- co111be. To Miss Rafferty we leave tl1e 111e111ories of a great homeroom. XVe li1lOXV she will never be able to replace her prese11t one, so we trust we will live in l1er memory. Those i11dividual menibers of tl1is Senior class wishing to make per- sonal bequeaths are as follows: I, Xvllllillll Hanagan, leave to Mr. Bridey a utility trailer to take care ofthe Ujunkn he usually has piled up O11 the rear seat of his car.

The American Consul to Istanbul is about to be interviewed by an American Foreign Correspondent. Wiell, if it isn't Bill Davis! XYhy Anne. don't tell me you are the reporter that's been hounding me for the last two weeks? You know, Bill. how newspapers must get their stories and Dick Taffe is reporting on a rival paper so I just had to beat him to it. So you're the American Consul here. XYell, you always were in- terested in International Relations, If Miss Rafferty could only see you now I ' How is your job? Is it a lonesome one? Have you been alone ever since you left Ame-rica? Uh, no-one thing about this job, you're always meeting new people and old friends pop up in the most unexpected places. Of all things. Hester Pfeiffer was 'dhe ship's hostess! And th-e first person I met after boarding the ship was the purser. and who should it be but Howard Balcolm. Remember Anna Santia? She was on the boat as governess for the various children passengers. I went into tlhe ship's library to look up some material, and who should greet me as the ship's librarian but Shirley Fox. We took a sightseeing trip over the boat, and in the engine room was Earl Simmonds as a me- chanic. Loyal Liscombe and Robert I-licks were sailors. The head dietitian was none other than Dorothy Temple. As you can imag- gine it was a great trip-quite a Natick High reunion! Bill: ,Xnne Bill: Anne Bill' Anne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne THE Speaking of dietitians reminds me that I met Eva Burke and Betty Main the last time I was in Paris. They are both in charge of the culinarv department in the Hotel Paree, And were the meals good! .Xmy Holdsworth assists them and gives morning broadcasts on their famous recipes. Un the boat they showed a movieAand guess who was in it ?-Mary hlcfartliy-slie's certainly quite the modern Simon Sinioneg and lloris Ryan did some marvelous dances-shes the best thing in the movies since Ginger Rogers retired. You'd be interested in a call I had just this morning from the local policeg they had picked up Eleanor Broadley, Edith Harper, and El- len Mahan as vagrants. They were hitch-hiking around the world and didn't have a cent or any means of identification. It seems they are planning to write up their adventures in book form. Madeline lieaney is going to help them write it and Marjorie Cournoyer will illustrate it. so they tell me. Heavens! Did they get arrested? No, I identified them and then Fred Daniher.. who is a big ragilroad magnate over here gave them free transportation on some of his lines and also some letters of introduction and they went on their way happy. I bet theirs will be some story when it comes out! I should say so. I must watch the bookstands for it. Speaking of stories, I see you have a couple of best sellers on your bookshelf. You mean "XrVhy I Like Democrats" by Marcia Bates and Wfhe Value of Silence" by Isabelle Prescott. Yes, they are considered remarkable books. Both authors must have deeply enjoyed their subjects. By the way, I suppose you saw the Olympic hockey team at the game this year. Yes, I didg you know Bud Moir, YVally Sabean, George Todd. Carl Gay and Froggy Ferguson skated their opponents off the ice. I heard Stanley Blanchard speak of it in his broadcast last night. Wrhen we were ini High School., it used to be Lowell Thomas'-now it's Stanley Blanchard that everyone listens to! Speaking of sports. Bud Feeley and Lou Cardellicchio have been playing professional basketball in Indiana. And I suppose you know Dot Green is ping- pong champion of America! Say, that reminds me, di:dn't I read that Ed Lee, manager of the Boston Bees, sent Dizzy Hladick to the Yanks again, to aid his brother aloe. And did you hear about George Mullen? He won 23 games for the Bees last year! That's wonderful, but Bill., this is really supposed to be an interview so I will have to ask you some hard questions. NVhat do you thifnk of our aerial offense and how about the Navy? XVith that new plane designed by Phil NVright and Burpee Adams we have the best in the world. Domiuiicj Digiacomo and Art Desd They champs are covering the Atlantic and the Pacific very well. are reputed to have the fastest ships that have ever' sailed the seven seas. W7asn't johnny Kleinfelder going into the Navy.. too? Yes, but as our 1938 Senior Play showed, johnny couldn't stand the sea. He is a recruiting officer in East Natick. Speaking of Natick, I heard a funny amateur hour program the other night-it was Tommy Klein, NVillard Nims, Bob Buckley and Earl l93S SASSMMDN Bill: Anne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne: Bill: Anne Bill : Anne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne Bill: TH E I 938 SASSAMDN Murray. They called themselves the Nut Club lioys. .Arthur Ker- mode was the Master of Ceremonies. He gave them the gong! That's a good one. The other. night XVilbur Parcells knocked out ,loe Louis: you should have heard Henry Anderson describing the fight. They say XYilbur dropped Louis right into Ned Pierce's lap as he was taking some pictures. Last week I saw that new male ballet in Rome. Butch Brennan, Rich Carey and Fran Sims were the leading dancers. Such grace! The real show was to see Helen and Sis Shea tap dance, though. XYalter Parker was performing as a magiciang he goes by the name of Ah Kan Du now. Say. do you know who passed through here yesterday? ,Adele Ham- wey, Virginia Hosmer and the two Ruth Johnsons. Adele is buying agent for her father. and the others are setting up missionary head- quarters here. Gene Clark and George Young were in close pursuit but George says he and Gene are just out fishing. Fishing reminds me that Anna Dahlgren, Saga Sealiolm and Dot Danforth have just hooked themselves millionaires for life. Mary Horrigan didn't acquire so much money but he's a Duke or something and has an S K I on the end of his name. Moi I.eland, who was the Democratic campaign manager during the last election, was terrihly upset when President Stump Grassey ap- pointed that cabinet of his, with all women and only one man. I don't know what will happen to good old IJ. S. A. now. You needn't be in the least worried. It's in the best of hands. I guess tlie reason he appointed so many women was because Edna Pelullo, Georgianna Ullrich, Helen Patista. and Loretta ljouret put the pressure on him in behalf of the National NYomen's Right's As- sociation. Did you hear who is on the cabinet? No. I suppose Natick is represented. or has our former Class Presi- dent forgotten his olcl home town? NYait until you hear: Barbara Bean is Secretary of the Treasury lietty Graham is Postmaster-General Lois Forster is Secretary of the State Katherine Heath is Secretary of the Navy Fran Houlihan. Secretary of Labor Marion Porter. Secretary of the Interior Effie Erickson, Secretary of Commerce Shirley Parker, Secretary of W'ar Francis Nickerson, Secretary of Agriculture And last.. but not least, Mel Goodwin is Attorney-General. XVouldn't you think he'd feel queer. being the only man? Uh, nofMelvin's used to that! I hear Dorothy Conlon has charge of checking up on late employees in the Post Office Department. Vvhat seemed to be new in Natick when you left? Well, let me see. liill Hanagan and Ralph I-lall are running eleva- tors in the Hotel Kendall in Framingham. They are certainly hav- ingl their ups and downs. Did you hear about Virginia liecherer, Rita Kane and Virginia .Xnne Bill: .Xnne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne Bill: Anne Bill: THE Henry? They have recently opened a beauty shop here. These Turkish women surely need it. l did hear that Brad l.X'allace manages the New Colonial Theatre in our old home town, and just like him, he has all girl ushersg Alice Mullen, Rita Duffy, Priscilla Nclieon and Mary McCormack.. who were all in our class of l938. lbid you know that ,Xmerican llress Designers have outdone Paris? It was the combined efforts of Klartlia Stadig. Elizabeth Thorpe. Betty Boyle and Rita Coyne, who are extremely outstanding in the fashion world for their beautiful creations. And of course you know that Katherine Nugent is the new .Xdrian of Hollywood. I went down tor the La Vie Paree Club here' last night. I expected it to be a French Club, and was certainly surprised to find that it's the .Xmerican gathering place of Istanbul. XValter Nelson seems to liave the business end in charge, and Emily Mclianiel is Hostess. Have you heardi Rudy Simoni's Swing Kings there? Oh, yes-in fact, that's my favorite club in town. If there's anybody from honie in the city, you can be sure of meeting them there. It'si funny I didn't see you-I dropped in for a while last night. Did you see ,Xnna Green? She tells me she is still following the hockey play- ers-only now she does it for a livingg she writes her impressions of Olympic sports for a newspaper syndicate. I didn't see Anna, but, I was certainly surprised to find so many people I knew there. Evidently, the management brought their own snappy cabaret waitresses from home. I saw Elsie Stewart, Rosalie Simeone and Emogene Lane. Did you notice Edward Murphy and Laddie Bennett? They came over to defend their amateur golf standing-Eddie holds the international championship, and Laddie is runner-up. . Did you ever see anything so funny as that act of Beverly Kimball's and Helen Stevens? XVhile I was there, Clayton XYright came over to my table. He was most dejected. He told me he was managing Phyllis W'eatherby's world violin recital tour, but Phyllis became so temperamental that Clayton couldn't stand it any longer. He said Marion VVebster has taken over the job-but he'll probably go back! Music seems to have been outstanding in our class, I saw in the paper that Diana Armato is playing with the Boston Symphony Or- chestra now. She always was a star with her clarinet, You know, of course. that Priscilla Bowers organized a new Dancing School, with Marie Killeen, Virginia VVaterman and Evelyn Denny as instructors. I go to see, them every once in a while. But here I am, spending all my time reminiscing instead of interviewing you and finding out about world affairs. Never mind world affairsg they can wait, while this its the most interesting interview I've had in a long time. You know I had a letter from Eddie Bradford the other day. He has finally completed his dream hospital with Emma Loring as chief surgeon and on his interne staff Howard Severson and Bud Maddix, who has just suc- cessfully removed his own appendix. The Chief Dentist is Harold Higgins, whose assistant is Connie Buckley. There is a large staff of nurses from our class of '38, Janet Clark does a new type of nurs- ing-reading poetry to the patients, or something, I believe? Also 1938 SASSMMON Anne: Bill: Anne: Bill: Anne Bill: ,Xnne Bill: TH If I Q38 SASSAMDN on the nursing staff are Marion Casey. Shirley Hicks. May Mac- Donald and Beatrice Bennett. That is great news. But l've some even more startling! Ray Gar- vey designed the New Natick High School., which has just been com- pleted by George Barr and Billie Martin. jimmy O'Regan is Prin- cipal. Ruth Barnicle teaches English: Ann Davis, modern lan- guages: Mary Mctirath, Lating Raymond Bayer, Economicsg Marie Ahern, Mathematics: l'aul Hastings, Historyg Marjorie XVinn, Home Economics: Esther Trulli, Transcriptiong Louise Brovelli, Type- writing. Gloria Goodwin and Iflorrie Iivans coach the girls and Ed Lindqust coaches the boys. Leonard Lawson teaches life saving. The swimming pool is under the direction of Claire Doherty.. who is assisted by Sadie Scarano. Dorothy Hitchcock is the first woman to become Superintendent of Schools and she is doing a fine job of it. She has a large staff of secretaries to keep her enormous files straightened out. Virginia Rice, Katherine Sununu, Lucille Moffat. Margaret Lynch and Mary Foley. Frances lilezzza is her Book- keeper. I think that is wonderful. I feel quite proud of the success of the Class of l938. I heard the other day that Francis Antalek holds the world championship in typewriting. He can type no less than 300 words a minute. .-Xncl did you hear that VX'innie Lang just attained the shorthand speed of 350-F I can't imagine it. I remember back in school I would gasp in amazement when girls in my class would take dicta- tion at IZO words a minute. Do you remember our shorthand teach- er, Miss Church? XYell. if it hadn't been for her encouragement I think I would still be taking dictation at 5 words a minute, and then, of course.. I never could have become a newspaper correspondent. I suppose you have heard of the new Y. XY. C. K. agency here to- improve living conditions in the slums of Istanbul? Helen Kelley started it. Rita jordan is Iixecutive Secretary. Margaret Palmer. Lena Digeronimo, Pearl Lincoln and Marguerite Gilsenan are some of the workers. By the way, what ever became of Rita Marciano? You used to be great pals. Uh, Rita has just married a Count, don't ask me to pronounce his name: I can't even spell it. But he's very nice and is extremely wealthy. I saw Mary Wiignot take the world championship for Vyfomen Skat- ers last week. I was talking to her afterwards and she told me that Virginia lYebster's business forecasting service is giving Babson's quite a bit of competition. Mary also told me that Barbara Arnold has married a trombone player. That was to complete her one- woman orchestra. XYell, Barbara always did like musicians. Did you know that Iivelyn Leavitt runs a night-club, and her specialty features are the singing cowgirl. Celia Cooper. Hill Billy harmonica solos by Irving Morris, the Bluey Blues Singer, Lena Pepe, and Rose Traniello, aerial acro- bat. I forgot to tell you that I hear from X'X'alter Hopkins now and again. He has become famous for his costume-designing. His models are Margaret Zanchi, jean Charlton and 'l'afta Mangle. Jean and 'liafta .IX n n e Bill: ,Xnne Bill: An ne 2 Bill: Anne: Bill: Anne: also help him with the art work. Edna Sargent sews all the cos- tumes bv hand. Before I forget it, I must tell you about Harold Kedian and Leonard Freedman. They are in a partnership. They deal in highly explos- ive gas. Gerry Lever has just patented his latest invention, a Hot .Xir Condenser, which liedian and Freedman are going to market for him. ,Xmong them, they have quite a corner on the hot-air marketg really, almost a monopoly. Un the side, Gerry publishes a magazine, "How To lieep Quiet." I don't believe the partnership helps at all with that. Ge1'ry's cartoonists are Roger XVillis and Ed McBride. XYell, who would ever think quiet little Gerald would ever become famous. It's like Kenneth McConnong he is director of a film com- pany. The company recently produced a mystery film, called "The Missing Teeth" with Herbert Church as the leading man and Pa- tricia I.ittle as the leading lady. It certainly made me think of l938l Have you heard about Mary Massie? She runs a bakery and has devised a "Tongue Twister Roll" which has made her famous. Evelyn Simonetta is her business manager. That is news. Have you heard about Roland Buell? He tried to become a hermit and started off into the Forests of XVest Natick without a single implement to help him make a livelihood. He was found walking around in a daze, having lost his memory and full of buckshot as a result of George Ulrich's hunting expedition. Dorothy Bernstein, prominent psychiatrist, is examining Buell to see if his mentality has been fatally injured. XiVhy Bill, it's 4:CO P. M. I've been here for nearly an hour. I must be going, but what shall I do for my story? Oh. make it up and I'll sign it. You've had plenty of Sassamoin practice! Come again soon, won't you? Thank you and I certainly will come again. And dont let Dick Taffe in when he comes! Goodbye. Goodbye. ANNE HAMILTON VVILLIAM DAVIS ADDRESS OF WELCOME Parents, teachers, and friends: It is my privilege and honor to extend to you a most cordial welcome to the Commencement Exercises of the Class of 1938. In behalf of my classmates I invite you to participate in the joy and happiness we are showered with today. Today brings about the end of our schooldays together. For the past twelve years we have been preparing ourselves to make our debut in the busy world. The first rung of the ladder has been reached. From this point we will begin to take on our own shoulders the various tasks that are de-A manded of us. Wle are all about to branch out into the winding roads of life. The time has come to answer that important question, "What am I going to. be ?'l Our whole life may hinge on the way we turn at this point. Now is the time to prove that we made good use of the valuable time srpent in pur- suing this education. Tl-l If I 938 SASSAMDN TI-1 If I 938 SASSAMDN XYe have been taught the true meaning of true democracy. Vile have been taught through sports, how much more successful we might be if we worked together. XYe realize that we are about to enter a world filledrwith uncertainty, a world that is suffering from the assurance of peace. We real- ize that we will soon be called upon to take over the operations of our govern- ment. Now that we have been shown the importance of all this., we resolve that we will go to any extreme to preserve our liberty. Though we have spent the last few years in bettering ourselves, it does not mean that our education has ended. Undoubtedly some are pian- ning to attend some university or college. These students are bound to be- come advanced.. But those who may not have the opportunity to follow in this line will not be restricted. They, too, can advance themselves by educa- ting themselves through actual experience. XYe leave behind us only memories. A feeling of sorrow overcomes us as we are about to leave our classmates and teachers. But despite this, the happiness and joy which comes from our first triumph, relieves us some- what of this feeling. And so la-dies and gentlemen, as this class is about to disband, I wish again to welcome you here to witness the graduating exercises of the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-eight. ALFRED GRASSEY FAREWELL The ideals of a nation are the ideals of the men who form that na- tion, and the men who can best serve that nation's interests are and must be the men whose spirit of loyalty and cooperation is most sincere and intense. Vvith this philosophy as a basis of good citizenship we have set our course in a direction that will help us make our community, state.. and nation a better place in which to live. Everyone realizes the existing political and economic situation. Vve know that the world is not waiting with open arms to welcome us to success, as it was fifty years ago. More than ever are the problems of unemployment, under consumption, and over-production crowding out the un- fortunate and the weak. W'e realize that hard work is the only means byf which we may succeed. A knowledge of history teaches us that every generation has imagin- ed tltat its problems were the greatest, and while we believe that we are entering a world which is more unsettled than ever before, we hope that we are better equipped to combat our problems. During the past three years we have earnestly studied the arts and sciences, or the fundamentals of a business career, in order that we may con- fidently face the world when we leave Natick High School. VVhether we further our education in college or enter directly into the business world., the background which these years has provided will do much to give us confi- dence and courage when the trials of life seem the hardest. And so today, as we say a lingering farewell to our Alma Mater, it is with mixed emotion that we realize that we will no longer be able to listen to the exhortations concerning life, the counseling about the golden oppor- tunities that lie before, and the warnings of the hazards which lie ready to trip us. T believe that everybody in this class has the same logical optimism and faith that we will succeed. For this feeling of preparedness we thank especially our mothers and fathers who today, as they sit proudly admiring their masterpieces, must be reminiscing over the years of hardship that made it possible. Mothers and dads, we are proud of you and thankful for all that you have done. Our hope is that some day we may be able to repay you and make you just a little prouder that you worked for and encouraged us. To our principals and teachers we owe an inestimable debt of grati- tude for making us better citizens of our country, for teaching us the real meaning of life, for showing us that it matters not whether we win or lose, but rather how we play the game. To our townspeople we offer our sincerest thanks for their kind generosity in supporting our schools. The knowledge we have gained by their contributions is infinite in value, and l hope that sometimelin the future we will be able to repay them in some way for their faith in us. A new epoch begins. The old is gone, but the principles will con- tinue as the driving force of our whole career. VVe must never turn back, but we will always think back. The opportunities have been showered upon us, the rest lies entirely with each one of us. -I.-XMES CYREGAN OUR CONSTITUTION Today, we live in a world beset by many and varied forms of "isms". On one hand we hear the exponents of Fascism belittling the efforts of demo- cratic governments and loudly voicing the plea of an uncontrolled dictator- shipg on the other hand, we hear the devotees of Communism asserting that their own form of government offers the only salvation in a world harassed by war and threats of war. Because of the preponderance of partisan propa- ganda, it must needs be difficult to ascertain the truth in a world overrun with untruths and half-truths. VV'e who live in America are particularly blessed because we are governed not by the idiosyncracies of a militaristic dictator, but rather by the voice of our own conscience, as we select the men whom we wish to represent us and whom we choose to make our laws. Our form of government is not the spasmodic offering of a frenzied seeker after laurels: it is not a hiatus. be- tween two opposing factionsg rather it is the product of 150 years of con- structive progress along certain definite pre-determined lines. As Americans we look back with pride to that convention which was held in 1787 and which produced the nucleus of our present government. Each one of us has respect for our Constitution and reverence for the men. whose judgment and foresight is reflected in its formation. These fore- fathers of ours were simple, honest, practical men wholly conversant with the exigencies of a new country. They saw with an almost infallible perception many of the obstacles which would be encountered. A momentous task was theirs, yet they carried on with an indefatigable zeal to produce a document, at which all the world marvels. Scoffers there are, who deride their efforts and fain would substitute "new ideals and new principles" for the tested and tried principles of our Constitution. Vtfe. must beware of this group, avoid them as we would a plague, lest we too become misguided by their oratory and seeming eloquence. Our forefathers feared autocracy, because these United States were formed to resist imperialistic power. VVe too fear autocracy because we have TH If I Q38 SASSAMDN TH If I 93 S SASSAMDN only to look about us to see the ravages and desolation brought about through the misguided efforts of tyrannical' despots. The people of America must never relinquish the freedom and loyalty impregnated in the Constitution of the United States. To the people is left the final workg to the people is left the last word of consent and the power of veto. ln no other nation is this power left with the people-shall we as Americans, rescind that power? Authors, in works of fiction, are prone to describe in courtly language a mystical Utopia where freedom abounds and laws are no more. As practi- cal every-day people, we are cognizant of the fact that only in books can this dream be realized, .-Xs practical people, we must cope with practical emer- gencies and we have learned through costly experience that only by consult- ing the pages of the past, can we cope with the emergencies of the present. XYe must have a support upon which to lean-we need the encouragement of those who have gone before-all this do we find exemplified to the fullest degree in the Constitution of the United States. lt has the approval of years, the weight of wisdom. yet is not infirm because of disuse. The glory of the Constitution is well-earned, the respect it inculcates in the American heart is the solace of the American citizen. As potential voters. we pledge ourselves to uphold the Constitution: we pledge ourselves to constructive thinking in matters of government. Wfe are proud of those forefathers who labored that, today, we might enjoy the privileges guaranteed in the Declaration of lndependence to every American-Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. ln this world so ravaged by dissension, we exult in the fact that we live and work in these United States of America founded and upheld by its Constitution. DOROTHY BERNSTEIN A COMMENCEMENT PRAYER We ask not for a clear and carefree path- way, v A life of ease, quite free from toil and paing We ask Thee not for wealth and power and riches, , lVe do not ask for mere 'hsuccessi and 'tfame". But rather for thy constant power and presence As on Life's road we are about to start. Help us bear our hardships asuthey come! Instill hope in each eager, striving heart. May we assist and love our fellow-meng May there be those we know will not pre- tend, U But share in truth each hope and Joy and sorrow: I , Oh, may we never be without a friend! Now, sadly we say, 'tFarewell, friends of childhood" We shall not meet again in schoolday fun. Though some may lack in this world's fame and fortune, May each know in his heart that he has Won! ESTHER TRULLI LAST FAREWELL The chimes are softly striking Tis "38', that's tolled. We've reached our final milestone The years have onward rolled. We've been friends and pals together Through these many years- Though we are so sad today, We're smiling through our tears. As We travel onward, Along life's joyful way- May We always remember then, Each happy yesterday. Now as we take our parting And bid our last goodbyes, We linger in our classrooms Loath to break our fond school ties. ANNE HAMILTON JEAN CHARLTON HIGH LIGHTS wd CLASS OP 193 .

Bedecked in whipcord uniforms of flashy red and blue our team played a game that rivaled the uniforms for color, by trimming Marlboro High, 25-0, in the first home game of the season. This started a streak in which our team remained undefeated for six straight games, being scored on only once in as many games. Wellesley, Hudson, Need- ham and Dedham, were held to ties while we easily defeated an aggressive Milford team, 7-O. Tieing Dedham was the highlight of the season as this team had been unbeaten and untied for over a year and a half. Although we completely outplayed an undefeated Norwood team, a last pe- IHE 1938 SASSMNON riod shower of forward passes broke our hearts as the score changed from 2 to 0 in our favor, to 7 to 2 in Norwood's favor. In our final game on Thanksgiving Day, we were outplayed but never out- fought as a championship Framingham team overpowered us on a muddy field which hampered our defense and ruined our offense. The superb kicking of Marty Hlad- ick aided us greatly for his magic toe rivaled that of any high school kicker in the State. Grupposo and Klein, our speed merchants, did most of the bali carrying, and tackled hard on the de- fense. In our line we had a smooth, working unit that was considered one of the strongest defensive lines ever turned cut of Natick High. Coaches Bridey and McManus deserve our appreciation for the practical football knowledge and sportsmanship which they instilled into the minds of the athletes of Natick High School. BASEBALL Natick High School appears to be a decided underdog in this year's Bay State title race. John Brennan, Wallie Sabean, and Captain "Al" Grassey are the only players returning from last year's squad who have played an inning heretofore for Natick.

Ann Davis, Betty Graham, Lois Forster, Emma Loring, and Dorothy Temple proved themselves suc- cessful tutors. Anne Hamilton and Shir- ley Parker entered the sophomore English classes to explain the basis for election and the activities of the members. In October Dorothy Bernstein was elected chairman to serve until the membership quota was filled. In December a tea was given at the home of Emma Loring for the Faculty Council in honor of Miss Coulter. At this time Miss Coulter was presented with an autographed copy of 'Northwest Passage" by Kenneth Roberts. In January the following officers were elected: President, James O'Regan Vice President, Ann Davis TH If I Q3 8 SASSAMDN Secretary, Esther Trulli On Washington's Birthday Lois Fors- ter and Betty Graham entertained the members at the home of Lois Forster. On March twenty-fourth the Honor Society sponsored an assembly program. The speakers were the following high school graduates who had entered business directly after leaving high school: Mr. Herbert Mitchell, Miss Barbara Wenzel, and Miss Helen Buell. They described their experiences in applying for their jobs and the necessary qualifications for holding them. The second Induction Ceremony was held on May seventeenth in the evening. Mr. James C. Fair of the School Congmit- tee addressed the group. Betty Graham, Emma Loring, Lois Forster, and Ann Davis gave interpretations of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service, upon which membership in the Honor Society is based. Mr. Hill presented certificates of membership at this time. On June 7 the Rotary Club entertain- ed the members of the Honor Society at a luncheon at the Rotary Club Rooms.

Two sepa- rate Councils were formed, with Miss Rafferty in charge of the Morning Coun- cil, and Miss Hayes in charge of the After- noon Council. The officers elected were: Morning: President, John Brennang Vice President, Shirley Parker, Secretary, Winifred Lang, Treasurer, Cynthia Leland. In March Nancy Loker was. elected Treasurer to take Miss Leland's place, as the latter was President of the Class of 1939, and under the point system could not hold two major offices. Afternoon: President, Francis Foley, Vice President, Ralph Stenquistg Secre- tary, Mary Grupposog Treasurer, Jean Allen. Kendall Benton in March replaced Francis Foley as President of the After- noon Council, as Francis Foley was also TH If I 93 S SASSAMDN Commissioner of the Safety Council, and under the point system could not hold two major offices. This year the Council was very active in school affairs. Early in October we held a Student Council Assembly at which the purpose and powers and duties of the Council were explained. The Council sponsored the Football Dance on Decem- ber 10, and it proved to be a great suc- cess. In March, through the efforts of the Council a point system was put into ef- fect. We also took an active part in tne changing of the class rings. The annual conventions were attend- ed by delegates and representatives from both of the Student Councils. The East- ern Division of Student Councils of Mass- achusetts met in Medford in December, and in Dedham in April. 'Through the untiring efforts of our advisers and the cooperating of the whole school, welfeel that we have established a very active Student Council. SAFETY COUNCIL The second year of this organization under Mr. Maffeo has proved quite suc- cessful. Because of the co-operation of the teachers and students the Council has been able to function very efficiently this year. It is composed of three commis- sioners, fourteen patrollers, and two alter- nates. The council has been fortunate in getting an entire new set of red and blue arm bands this year, which gives the afternoon councilors an opportunity to have the same privilege of wearing arm bands that is enjoyed by the morning council. Each councilor has a designated position which is changed every two weeks by the commissioners, thus giving all a chance for outside and inside uuty. If the conduct of any pupil is unruly and offensive, the councilor warns him. If he finds later that the warning didn't the safety councilor has the take effect, privilege of reporting him to the commis- sioners, on a safety record sheet. This TI-1 If I Q38 SASSAMDN also applies to any pupil who disobeys cross-walk rules and customary social rules outside the school. The commis- sioners then send out a warrant to the pupil who appears at the trial held on every Monday where a clerk reads the charges against the offender. The pupil is given the privilege of pleading "guilty' or "not guilty". lf the latter pleads "not guilty", a vote is taken by the jury con- sisting of not less than six and not more than twelve members of the Safety Coun- cil. In each case, the Commissioners, as Judges, sentence the offender to detention' or to loss of lunch periods. A The afternoon session under Mr. ,Hig- gins, carries on a Safety Council similar to the morning session with the exception that they have no commissionersjbut are supervised by the Morning Commissioners who are the Judges at their trials. Thus far the Safety Council has successfully tried 153 cases, including both the morn- ing and afternoon sessions. As the Council has had considerable success in all its undertakings this year, we can confidently prophesy a bright future for this organization. SAFETY COUNCIL Back Row-D. Digiacomo, E. Lowe, F.

ORCHESTRA During the year the Orchestra has played for several Parent-Teachers' As- sociation meetings, for the Woman's Club, and for the Senior Play. Several orchestra members have en- tertained on various assembly programs much to the delight of the audience. GLEE CLUBS The Glee Clubs have been very active this year, both in singing for special ac- tivities outside of school and also in school. A selected group gave an assembly program recently which was exceptional in its performance. Many thanks are due to Mr. Crumrine for his excellent guidance and the inspiration for music he has given many of the Glee Club members through his leadership. TH E I 938 SASSAMDN TRACK The track season got underway May 5 with Natick at Medway. The Natick boys showed well in the running events, win- ning four out of five first places, but fail- ure to score points in the field events gave Medway the meet by a sizeable margin. The Walpole meet a week later was a du- plication of that at Medway. At this writing, three dual meets still remain- those with Wellesley, Marlboro, and the Wayside School. Besides the dual meets, a number of the boys have been entered in the state meet and the Needham In- terscholastics. The members of the squad have shown plenty of enthusiasm and are steadily improving, but the lack of can- didates has been a decided handicap to the eam. Several boys have been consistent and outstanding point winners this season. Tommy Klein in the dashes and "EddieD Lindquist in the half and the mile. Bill Paul, Ned Pierce, Bud Hedderig, Herb Wells, Dick Taffe and Bob Hanagan have been other point winners. SENIOR PLAY This year the Senior Class selected the play, "BILLY", given under the direction of Miss Mowry. The cast of the play was as follows: . . . ....
