ADDRESS OF WELCOME - CLASS DAY VVe the Class of 1938 have gathered here today to hold our Class Day Exercises. 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
