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."

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
