ADDRESS OF WELCOME - CLASS DAY
YYe are pleased to welcome you, our parents and friends, to these, our
Class Day exercises. NYhile we are assembled here to participate in one of
the last ceremonies of the Class of 1939, this is not rhe occasion for the solemnity
of graduation, but rather the more joyous aspect of our finishing days.
.Xt this time it seems fitting that we express our deep-felt appreciation
to you parents and teachers for your constant guidance and encouragement
along the path of education. :Ks time goes on, we realize more and more how
much we have accomplished through your untiring efforts.
'lilie world of today presents numerous problems which act as a chal-
lenge to us. Xke will endeavor to do all in our power to help solve theiu and
thus justify your confidence in us.
'lihis year marks an innovzition in the Class Day program, since,
through the kindness of the Colonial 'liheater management, we have been able
Io secure its use for the day's ceremonies. NVe trust that you will derive greater
enjoyment from our program here in more spacious surroundings.
HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1939
XXX: always find it interesting to reminisce, and in this history of the
Class of 1939, we must go back to that first day when our fond parents took
us in hand and led the way to the classrooms of neighboring buildings where
we began our school careers. Our days as a class are quickly drawing to a
close, and soon we will say goodby to Natick lligh School with the deep regret
that our time together is over and the realization that we must begin the long,
open journey of living, each on his individual road.
.lunior lligh School brought us together as a class for the first time.
In the ninth grade a new teacher joined us and was promoted to high school
with us. Yes, hlr. liridey was a frzenpl to all students and we were clown-
hearted when he left us the early part of our senior year to accept a teaching
position in another school, although we are happy that he is making such
progress in his chosen field.
liewildered as sophomores, we were isolated from upper classmen and
the activities of the school. VVe looked with awe at the juniors and seniors,
and wondered if we could ever be as confident as they were. It
seemed that it would be ages before we would become juniors. As sophomores,
we had little opportunity to be an active part of the school, since our school
day was so limited that we spent all our time in classes, but we did become
acquainted with the routine of the school.
:Xs sophomore class officers we elected Cynthia Leland, President,
Virginia Glancy, Vice Presidentg Natalie Hastings, Secretary, Vivian Cantrel,
Treasurer. Ir wasn't until our junior year that we made any real progress
toward class organization. Our sophomore officers had little or no opportunity
for any group activity.
A very capable junior executive hoard was organized, and was respon-
sible for the election of the committees which made the Junior Prom, our first
social activity, a memorable success. Vile had a pleasant evening, beautiful
THI: S'SSEME 4 IEEE
decorations, a rhythmic orchestra plus a dancing party enjoyed by everyone.
The new junior class officers - Cynthia Leland, President, Patricia Taffe, Vice
President: Natalie Hastings, Secretary: Vivian Cantrel, Treasurer - led the
colorful Grand March.
The Commercial Department accomplished something never before
recorded in the history of the school. 'lihere were more shorthand certificates
fwhich show superior skill and accuracy in taking and transcribing dictationj
awarded our class of twenty-eight girls and one boy than have ever been in
the past. A gold pin is awarded for a person taking dictation at 120 words
a minute and transcribing accurately, the requirement of colleges for a diploma.
There were more gold pins presented to our group than any previous ones.
More recent events come back to us as we recall 1938 and 1939, our
senior year of school.
Our football team fought hard, and, although it didn't come out on
top, it was well captained by co-captains Burton VVright and VVarren Hanna.
Four members of the football team composed Natick's team for "Kick-
off Time", a quiz program sponsored for many neighboring schools on one of
the local radio stations. The prize for winning second place was a scholarship
for some deserving senior boy to the Hempel-Diesel School of lingineering. YVe
thank the boys of the Junior Class who graciously helped the senior boys merit
The first outstanding senior activity of the year scored a brilliant
success. This was our Senior Play, "Lucky VVinner", a comedy in which each
and every participant did a splendid job, showing that our class really has
students with outstanding acting ability.
The hockey team, led by Verna Lilja, made a favorable standing
in the liastern Massachtisetts Hockey League. Four of Natick's players were
chosen as members of the Eastern Nlassaclitisetrs Interscholastic Hockey League
team, and played on the winning team in this competition.
Our basketball team, under the captainship of Vincent Grupposo,
chalked up an outstanding record of which they can be very proud. This
team won the championship of the Bay State Basketball League for which they
were awarded an ebony and silver plaque inscribed with the names of the
players and their coach, which will add to the array of trophies won by previous
classes. Gold pins as champions and medals for proficiency in basketball were
presented to the squad by the league.
For the final class leaders, the following were chosen to be the most
outstanding: Olin Hayes, Presidentg Albert Alcock, Vice President, Natalie
Hastings, Secretaryg Charles Pfeiffer, Treasurer.
Each year the Natick Chapter of the Daughters of the American
Revolution sends a senior girl as its delegate to an annual convention in Boston.
Representing our idea of best citizenship, patriotism, scholarship, leadership
and character, the faculty and class chose Vivian Cantrel as the girl with
these qualifications, who was a competent representative.
The Senior Reception will mark our last social event as a class. As
the final strains of the music drift through the night, we will realize we shall
never again be together as a class, but shall always hold it as a deep remem-
The beginning of the history of the Class of 1939 must come to end

today, but we know that with the ideals and skills that have been acquired by
us in Natick High School, we shall make our way into the world, striving to
attain success for ourselves as individuals with the endeavor to make worth-
while contributions to society.
Vl'e, the Class of 1939 of the Natick Senior High School, with all due
premeditation, care, and sense of responsibility and consideration of the welfare
of this gathering do truly and lawfully make, ordain, publish, declare and pro-
claim as genuine this to be our last will and testament and request that its
contents be carried out to the utmost.
To Mr. Hill we leave our entire support for a new, spacious, modern
and well equipped High School in order to do away with the evils of the double

To Miss Currier we leave a Ski Team that we hope will produce
wonders and have the same patience as we have had in waiting for that precious
snow to fall.
To Mr. Vlloodbury we leave one correspondence singing course to be
shared with the other members of that famed quartet.
To Miss Rafferty we leave some junior who will lead and make known
to the school the deliberations of that powerful and important group -

To Mr. Sears we leave a few earnest Juniors who can convince him
that the school still wants Sassamon Dances.
To Miss Ratsey we leave our sincere thanks for her ever important
advice and for her help in art classes.
To Mr. Plausse we leave our wholehearted support in his organization
of sports for everyone.
To Miss Nutt we leave a Junior Class that will be as kind and friendly
to her as we hope we have been.

the students to read the "Readers Digest" a little more thoroughly.
To Mr. VVhite we leave "Joe Miller's Joke Book" in order to supplement
his large volume of jokes.
To Miss Young we leave a French Class that will enjoy the Cooperative
French ltxams as well as we have.

bequeaths are as follows:

Why, joe Brown! I haven't seen you since our graduation back in '39!
IX hat in heaven s name happened to you?
XXX-ll, Nat, you see l'm goalie for the Bruins now, and it was one of our
old classmates who was responsible for the sight you see before you.
You remember Bud Hayward?
I sure do, .loe - the Pride and joy of Room IS! Who could forget
that countenance? But how did it all happen?
Vl'ell, it wasn't all Bud's fault. You see, it was the two burly Ranger
players, Rocco Franciose and Bill Chase coming in on me to try to
score the deciding goal of the series. "Bud" Hayward, in an attempt
to break up the play, was thrown on top of me, his skate cutting into
the back of my leg. 'lihere was a short fight in front of the net in
the next few seconds, and during this brief struggle, I received a blow
on the head. Referee ,lim VVhalen penalized Manager VValter
-lewett's two stars, thus giving the Bruins a two-man advantage.
"Bebe" l,ilja, the high scorer of the Bruins then scored the deciding
goal of the series, just before the final bell,
I.eave it to good old Bebe. A hockey player certainly leads a great
life, but say, joe, have you seen any of our other old classmates?
I had a letter a short time ago from Johnny Hill, who invited me
to come and see his new streamlined ice plant. You know he has
made a great deal of progress in the Field of ice refrigeration. Very
soon, he's going to have perfected his ice rinks which stay frozen out-
doors twelve months of the year! He tells me he thinks he's sold
the town fathers, Bill Killeen and Salvatore Tambollio the idea of
maintaining an outdoor rink on the Natick Common. 'I'hey've prac-
tically hired Bob Palmer and Herbert VVells as permanent super-
visors and skating instructors.
Imagine! johnny has really done quite well, hasn't he? 'lihe business
must be growing!
Uh, yes - and he has a valuable partner now in Donald Hedderig,
who manages the labor part of the ice plant. just as I was leaving,
several of his truck drivers were coming in. They were Bob Green,
llenry Barber, Gordon Suggitt, Art Colburn, and Charlie Brady. I
was so surprised - but here I am talking all about my doings. Have
you seen any other members of our class lately, Nat?
XXX-ll, -Ioe, when I left Natick High, I thought I'd seldom see my old
friends. Youll never believe it, but a good many of them are working
right here beside me every day. 'lihe two nurses that you just saw
dash by the door were Virginia Adams and Louise Ahern. Ginny is
supervisor of the anaesthetics department. Nancy Loker is now
Dr. Ralph I'feiffer's assistant. Lucky girl! I suppose you saw Mary
Hurd sitting at the desk as you came in. Poor Mary tried to go on a
diet of raw vegetables and fruit juice, and now look at her - no
resemblance to the Mary we used to know!
Holly, Nat, after hearing about a stall' like that, I don't mind how
THI: S'SSf3lMU 4 IEEE!
long I have to stay here. Say, was that Gladys Edwards that just
Yes, Joe, she hasn't changed a bit, has she? She's our head dietitian
here. Her chief assistants are Marge Duboyce and Harriet Vkignot. Chet
Augustine and Noel Blanchard drive ambulances, and - guess who's
here, cutting up frogs and chickens to her heart's content in our exper-
imental lab, and having a grand time doing it?
Don't tell me - I think I know. It sounds like Mary Branagan!
Right, first guess! Isn't it just like her! Uh, and did I tell you
that I-Id Brown is the Superintendent of the hospital - but his assis-
tant, Ed Burke does all the work.
Old N. H. S. is certainly represented here. I suppose you've heard
that my old pal, Rusty Edwards, has invented an electric pancake
Flipper that turns out better pancakes than Aunt vlemima's hot skillet.
Say, Nat, whatever happened to Lawrence Gnecco?
VVhy, haven't you heard, joe? He went to Africa to become a Mis-
sionary and nobody has heard from him since. lhe last reports had
it that he had wandered off into the jungle.
Can you imagine! But things happen like that every day. Did you
know that Charlie Ahern has become a children's librarian? He's the
only one of his kind in the United States.
Good for Charlie! I see that Bob Fairbanks was one of our more
successful graduates. He owns the Natick Nightly Newshawk, one of
the best selling newspapers. John Bennett is lfditor and Assistant
Fditor Charlie Pfeiffer is in charge of a great number of the office
Aren't there any other members from our class on this staff? I thought
we had quite a number of efficient stenographers and reporters!
Oh my, yesg in the office staff there are Louise Bitsoli, Thelma Morten-
son, Marjorie Cowee, Kate Driscoll, Doris Knox and Marjorie Noyes.
Margie Black, Alice Dawborn and Frances Norman have a column in
the paper on beauty tips and reducing exercises. 'lean Sutherland is
the society reporter, ffdith Fenton and .lanet Boardman handle the
art work, while Sunny Barr and Sherry Coleman are the star photo-
graphers. Virginia Cole runs a daily column entitled, "Advice to Love-
lorn Ladies". You remember the column on current affairs that used
to be handled by Dorothy Thompson when we went to school? ffihat
is now syndicated jointly by Virginia Glancy and Vivian Cantrel!
Still together! Anyone else on the paper?
Wfell, VValter Clover, Bob Branagan and Mario Manna are the star
newshawks. There are several features, including a column called "The
Quiet Corner" by Marjorie Byrne, "Household Hints" by Hilda Swan-
son and "Fashions" by Angela Arena. leanne Barney handles the
"Love and Sentiment" column and Frances Sammartano has a daily
column on fttiquette.
I believe I saw a comic strip in that same paper by Fred Howard.
just the other day I was reading an article on the sports page by Bob
Ross. He says that Olin Hayes, that great professional tennis player,
and Don Budge are soon to play a match. Looks like the President
of '39 will bring the class tennis fame! Bob also writes about the
Boston Professional Basketball team league. The winning team with
TI-ll: SQSSFIMU 4 IEIEQ
some of the players of our victorious 1939 squad is managed by
johnny D'Brien. You remember them all, Nat - Bud Whitman Burt
Vkright and Male Heald.
:Xlbert Alcock has proved himself to be the best gentleman jockey at
Narragansett this season. Phil Brown is the trainer of Seabiscuit III,
lYar Adniiral II and other famous thoroughbreds owned by Alcock.
I hear that he also follows jitterbugging on the side. I-le has just invented
a new dance called the "Shrimp Crawl" which he and Wiiiiiy Murphy
have made famous through their personal appearances.
Shrimp always was a wonder! But I see where Thelma DeVVitt and
Dorothy Massie now have a regular program every Sunday evening at
Uh, yes, and on this same program Phyllis jenness, joe VVilkinson and
Barbara Deane also singg hlarguerite Bergstrom, lfdythe Brophy and
lfleanor XVilliams are in the orchestra. Bill Borden and his wife,
Madeline Brennan, are the comedians, and their sponsor is none other
than Bob Casey, the hotdog king.
l imagine Bill and Madeline make a good couple - I remember
they used to crack the stalest jokes.
'liliey not only work on the radio, but are now playing in that dramatic
production entitled, "The Return of the Mad Russian". Bill, of course
plays the lead, and there is an all-star cast of Dot Murphy, Mary
Nielson, Bill Paul, VValter Ilall and Doris lVlcGovern.
l must try to see that picture. And, that reminds me - did you
know that Bud lledderig, that "Cassanova of Natick High" is causing
quite a sensation out Hollywood way? Bud's fighting for Deanna
Durbin lor his leading lady, and the producers seem to think that
he and Shirley 'liemple would Film much better together.
la-aye it to Bud! Did you know that Dominic Cucinotta has bought
out Rosenthal's dry-goods store?
Yes. 'lihey say he has a marvelous business! Ann Pisano, Miriam
'lihayer and Dot Neale are his star salesclerks.
lfor heavenis sakesl Vllhatls going to happen next? I suppose you
know that .Xda 'liurner and Blanche Paquin are joint owners of the
Colonial 'liheatre nowl
Uh, yes, and speaking of the Colonial, I hear 'liomniy Halpin has
quite a taxicab business across lrom the theater. He calls it "'lihe
Colonial Cab Service." He employs john McCormack, Bob lNlcKeon,
Steve McNeil, Xkillartl Roscoe and john Parmenter.
Do you know that Marie Gleason and Alice Branagan own a large
restaurant right next to the theater? Margaret Bremner is their cashier.
and Rose Xkebber is head waitress. lfor her assistants, Rose l'l.1L1
Xlartlia jewett, Barbara Brown, llelena Coleman and lfdna Gibson.
Nkalt Bregoli is the strong man of the place, being the official bouncer.
George l"ield is cliel and john hlcblanus makes the pastries.
Did you know that Ruth Blizard is another one that's gone Hollywood
on us. I heard that she linally got her long-desired wish the other day
when lfdgar Bergen consented to let Charley McCarthy sit on her
lap. Ruth said she got quite a thrill out of itl
I can imagine she did. But did you know that Al Bellofatto is now
playing for Benny Goodman? It doesn't seem possible, does it? I
THI: SASSFIMU 4 IEEE
heard that Leota Taylor has just started an all-girl orchestra. Helen
McNeil plays the violin, Ruth Wenzel the tuba, Louise Zicko, the saxo-
phone, and Signe Stadig the drums. They call themselves, the "Peppy

Naturally, joe, I guess practically everybody in the United States has.
just imagine having a high school building ten stories high! Ihey say
that people come from all over to see it.
Yes. At last no more afternoon sessions! I suppose you know that
-Iimmy VVhite is still having his ups and downs over there!
Vlfhat - hasn't he graduated yet - after ten years?
Oh, yes! He graduated finally - but you see Natick, not to be out-
done by Vliellesley, has installed elevator service. ,lim and Prank
Strange are running them. Can't you just hear them saying, "oth
Hoor, English 2, French 3 - going down!"
Vvhat fun they must have! I hear that they have a wonderful swim-
ming pool. VVasn't Martha Murray lucky to get the job as swimming
instructor! Martha has become world-famous through her well-known
"Murray Flip". She has a marvelous water ballet featuring Olga
Durling and Virginia Green.
Did I hear something about Vin Grupposo being Director of Physical
Yes, that's true. But he isn't the only one associated with the new
high school. Pauline Howard and Catherine Horan teach typewritingg
I,ois Goldstein teaches singing in all the schools in Natick, assisted
by Pauline lfdwardsg Nellie Furber teaches shorthandg .lerry Hanilin
teaches physicsg George Mitchell is the lfconomics Professorg Mary
Houlihan teaches art: Martha Mahard teaches lfnglishg Cynthia Leland
is in the History Department, and Miggs Mann is the gym teacher.
'lihat surely includes a great many of our classmates - but whatever
happened to Rosalie Casella?
Uh, she owns a book shop in Framingham. She and Gena bfartinelli
are in business together. 'lihey sell all type books and claim the best
sellers are "How to be Un lime" by Leigh VVentworth and Louise Casa-
vant, and "Football and How to 'Iiake It" by Leon Ifrskine.
I played at the VVildwood Golf course last summer and I was surprised

But say, have you heard about the latest Natick Court case? Leora
Allen is suing ,lim Barnard for breach of promise. jimmy claims he
can't be in the wrong, because he never promises anything. Lorraine
Barnicle is I,eora's lawyer, and Bob Fish is ,lim's lawyer.
Oh, yes, I remember reading about that, but the accident Joanne
Doherty is mixed up in is far worse. Safety Commissioner Art Leacu
is trying to take her driving license away from her.
But I understand Joanne only knocked down a few traffic dummies

It is to l,eacu - you know he began being safety-conscious away back
in 1939 under Mr. lVIaffeo's careful instruction! 'I'hey are going
to have a court trial tomorrow. judge Charlie Dorian and a jury of
twelve members will decide joanne's fate.
I read that the jury consisted of most of joanne's old friends. 'lihey
are Maude Nicholson, Shirley Ball, Edna Barr, Mildred Carter, Virginia
fhznnberlain, I,ouise Corbosiero, Virginia Cypher, Frances Diluccio,
l.illian Haddad, Dotj Hall, Ruth Ruigrok and Mary Pelullo. Mary
lNlcCarthy is the famed court reporter.
Xkhy, with that jury, joanne's fate is already decided! I suppose
that you've already heard that Mike 'liorti has won the Championship
Goldfish Swallowing contest of the country. 'Iihey say Mike raises
his own special breed. Anyway, the great event took place last week,
when he swallowed SOO of 'em.
Now that you mention it, joe, when I saw Mike last week, he did
have a fishing look in his eye! Golly, you'd wonder where they'd all go
to, wouldn't you? But I guess they could find plenty of room in Mike!
Did you know that Cornelia Pineau is in Paris now? She's a famous
dress designer and has brought along Gloria 'liamagno as her model.
Gloria has just married a rich Frenchman.
'lihat is news! Do you know that Juliette Sununu now has her own
vegetable truck? She and Bruna Tota have just written a hook called,
"XVe, 'lihe Vegetarians".
I meant to tell you that we have a couple of graduates who have made
the Big Leagues in baseball, but poor Eddie Driscoll will have a tough
time keeping his Brooklyn Dodgers out of the cellar division this year.
llis only chance for the pennant rests on Bob Fitzgerald, the Dodger's

ADDRESS OF WELCOME
Parents, Teachers, and Friends:
Un behalf of my classmates, I extend to you a most cordial welcome
to the Graduation exercises of the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-nine.
Vllith these ceremonies we triumphantly close our activities as pupils of the
VVe shall try faithfully to reward you, our parents and teachers, for
the unceasing efforts and hours of sacrifice which you have given in order that
we might get off to a good start in the field of education. Some of us will
go on to college while others will enter directly into the business world.
Lasting friendships formed here are undoubtedly going to help us in the future
- which is another reason for our indebtedness to Natick High.
Upon investigating the meaning of the word "educate" in YVebster's
dictionary, one of the definitions found is "to develop or cultivate physically,
mentally or morally". According to VVebster's definition, we have attained a
In our studies the value of an open mind, careful investigation, and
clear, intelligent thinking has been impressed upon us. Much has been done
to help us select some definite VOCHUOII or place of further education.
Through sports we have had physical development, we have been
taught the meaning of true sportsmanship by the coaches, we have been inspired
by the will to win, and we have trained intensively to attain some goal.
ln other extra-curricular activities we have learned the importance of
cooperationg in some cases much responsibility has been vested in some person
or group, and, by taking it, the education of that person or group has been
enriched many times.
Thus - as the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-nine - we welcome
you today with a feeling of satisfaction that we have come so far, mingled with
a feeling of sadness, but overshadowing all, the enthusiasm with which we await
Today we meet as a group for the last time, a group comprised of
one hundred and ninety young men and women who have fulfilled the require-
ments which entitle them to a high school diploma. l
Alexander Pope has said:
"A little learning is a dangerous thing,
Drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring:
There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
And drinking largely sobers us again."
THE SHSSHMU 4 IEEE
As we stand on the threshold of the future, we should realize that we
are not experienced men and women but only beginners who equipped with youth,
ambition, and a "little learning" are ready to take up the task which lies before
us of increasing our scanty store of knowledge.
'lio those of you who are entering the business world, with its count-
less opportunities, do not forget that it will take perserverance, work, and study
to obtain a worthwhile position. Do not feel that the opportunity for learning
ceases when you leave the care and guidance of your teachers. No matter what
the task, you and you alone determine your future -- your success. Always
strive to improve yourselves, not only through study but also through obser-
'lihe American laborer has been said to be the most intelligent work-
man in the world. He docs more reading and thinking than all the rest of the
working men combined. Yet more thought is needed, more inspiration and more
'lio those who have the golden opportunity of entering various schools
"Drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring" for success should come to those
who continue their studies. Do not measure the time spent in learning in hours
but in the honor and enjoyment that you receive. The scope of your power
and of your success depends upon the scope of your knowledge. Combine study
and work and you make life a pleasure.
Never let it be said of us that we are completely satisfied with our-
selves. .-X man is often content to have won small victories, but as soon as a
man is satisfied with himself he ceases to grow. Let us look to the future where
countless opportunities for study and work face each one of us.
It is with this outlook that we wish to thank our parents, friends, and
teachers who have so willingly helped us to accomplish this, our first great
step in lifeg and it is our sincere hope that we may be ever worthy of your
friendship and advice during the coming years.
VVHAT'S RIGHT WITH AMERICA
.Nmericans are among the truly privileged peoples of the earth. Out
democratic form of government may have its occasional failings in dealing with
the problems of its citizens, but in the broad sense it is a complete success.
X real measure of "what's right with fXineric:i" is "what's wrong with Russia,
Cierinany, and Italy". ln such countries, the lives of the people are over-
shadowed by the mailed fist of might, liberty is crushed, and fundamental
human rights have been shackled or obliterated in the name of some totalitarian
creed or at the whim of greedy dictatorship.
Opinions in our democracy do not have to conform with those of the
person in power. as would be necessary if we lived in a "dictator" nation. In
such countries, a dictator's decrees must be accepted with approval, and even
among close friends it is not safe to express opinions which differ from those
of the government. Imagine living in a country where one is forced by fear
to look wifh commendation on brutality and ruthless injustice to a fellow citizen,
whose only fault is difference in race or religious belief.
.Xmericans enjoy freedom of the press. Xve read both sides of current
problems in our newspapers and magazines, not merely the government's inter-
pretation of events. lfach citizen has the right to decide for himself what is
truth and what is propaganda.
THE SHSSHMU 4 IEEE
In our United States, religion is given open expression. It is not
suppressed, nor is it a cause of persecution. Some people have been told that
God no longer exists for them, and henceforth they must worship the state.
We, as Americans, can have no conception of the complete and utter sense of
loss that must follow such an ultimatum. Freedom of religion is guaranteed
to us in our Constitution.
Our idea of education in America is to enable the individual to make
the greatest possible use of his abilities and powers. At an age when the
young people of many nations are being taught to use weapons of war, we are
being equipped with vocational and professional tools. We learn how to live,
not how to kill.
In America we set a high valuation on peace. Dictators are trying to
inculcate the idea in their people that aggressive Wars are necessary and right.
Since peace is our objective, we must work actively for it. Our first step is
to learn not to judge a country by its radical leaders. We must recall that all
people have the same problems as we have here. Parents "Over
There" pray for their children's success and well being, and no doubt they
hope as fervently as our parents, that 'teen-age boys and girls will not be
sacrificed in any vain war.
America will continue to be the right place in which to live if we make
intelligent use of our privileges, and in particular, if we use sane judgment about
our position in the event of another world war. America is one of the world's
mightiest nations, but we do not believe that "might makes right". VVe have
learned by experience in one World YVar that an attempt to "make the world
safe for democracyn by Wai, resulted in more grave threats to a permanent peace.
VVe are not interested in aggression, for we realize that the last war did not
accomplish its objective. Our contribution to America and the world should
be to demonstrate right here at home how well democracy can function.
The youth of the Nation must carry on the ideals in which it has
been trained. VVe pledge that our class will translate into deeds our loyalty and
faith in the things which have made America great.
America! America! God mend thine ev'ry Haw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law. ,
"Americal America! hlay God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And every gain divine.
Americal Americal God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea."

'llhe silent group of squires bow,
All eager for the coming morn,
'When they will at last their armor don.
.-Ks with the day the shadows fade,

Of knighthood is laid with morning's light.
Rise then each one, no longer squire but knight.
Receive thy arms and bear them well:

And let each one be proud to tell

Linsullied by the world's slow stain.

And when the tourneyls lists are closed,
Find shield and armor still burnished bright.

lmpatiently the prancing steeds await.

Let the drums roll, the bugles soundg

Rides the Class of Thirty-Nine.

"We outp'ayed them, but they won."
Thus in a few words might be explaincl
the Natick High football record of ISVZY.
Time and again the wearers of the blue
and red completely outplaycd their oppo-
nents and with victory almost in their
grasp, would for some inexplicable reaso.i
have a lapse of enthusiasm at the psycholo-
gical moment to wipe out their gallant
efforts of the entire day. However, the
followers of this 12438 eleven had mucl.
occasiin to be proud of them because of
the sustained spirit, the unwavering perse-
verance and on the whole, the good team-
A glance at the record will prove that
this club left much to be desircl in thi
way cf a winning combination. Howevez
if we were looking for reasons for its ap
parent failure, many could be found, chicg
of which would be the extraordinary num-
ter of minor injuries to key players. Bu.
since we do not care to waste too much
time on such useless pleasure we will di-
gress minly to say that while their victory
column may be short, our boys were long
on courage, character and true sportsman-
While it is expected that next year's
eleven will once again establish the su-
premacy of Natick in football, we realize
that tht- ability ot' Captains Hanna and
VViight, Fitzgerald, Hedderig, Manna, Bre-
goli. Erskine, and particularly Vinnie
"Booth" Grupposo, all ot' the class ot' 19219
will bg- greatly missed. These boys, who
have had one or at the most, two years of
varsity experience, seem to be just about
"arriving" athletically speaking: it is un-
fortunate then that they can continue their
gridiron activities no longer. We who have
had the pleasure to be associated with
Natick High athletics look forward to th-'
time when our school, like all of our oppo-
nents will be abfe to be represented by the
three clas'es of the Senior High School.

Haywood and Chase. The captain led in GOLF -
team scoring, while our goalie, Joe Brown
was considered by many to have no peer
in the Eastern Massachusetts Hockey
The play of the team throughout the seam
son was admirableg in no game were they
greatly outclassed. Malden and Somerville
fell victims to the speed of the Natick six
and Lexingtoin was tied. While the other
members of the league were winners over
Natick, the determination of our hockey
team drew many favorable comments from
opposing coaches, sports writers, and fans.
The game is fast growing im this as well
as in other communities, and it is hoped
that next year the play of the team under
Captain-elect Stenquist. will well merit the
loyal support of the faithful rooters from
the "town of champions."
one returning regular from
olf squad, the forthconiing
season is one of conjecture. The veteran
returning is Warren Hanna. Among the
new recruits the leading contenders for
regular starting berths are Joe Brown, and
The golf team is taking part, for the
second year, in the Bay State Golf League
composed of six neighborhood teams. The
winner of the league plays off with the
winrner of the Greater Boston League in the
quarter finals of the Statewide School Golf
Whether or not this ye-ar's golf team
wins the League Championship is problem-
atical, but you can rest assured that they
will do their utmost to return victors.

The Safety Council under the direction
of Mr. Maffeo has again completed a suc-
cessful year. As usual the fine cooperation
between the faculty and stuflents has done
much to further the work and success of
the Council. The organization was com-
posed of twenty councilors or patrollers
and three commissioners with two alter-
nates. Each patroller is identified by a
blue band with the red letters N. S. P.
standing for Natick Safety Patrol. During
the passing interval between classes these
councilors may be seen keeping order in
the corridors and stairways. Also they are
on duty during lunch period and have charge
of the seating in assembly. Persons break-
ing the laws of the Safety Council are
brought before the Safety Court in Room 34
where they are tried and if proven guilty
are given detentions according to the charge
V. Dahlgren, O. Fraser.
This year the Council has established a
precedent which, it is hoped, will be carried
on by succeeding councils. At the end of
the year when the Senior Council turns
over the authority to the Junior Council
a party is held for both councils.
Also this year the Constitution and By-
Laws which will go into effect next Septem-
ber were drawn up in which many phases
of the council were altered. One big change
is the formation of a Junior Council which
will rotate with the Senior Council, the
latter being on duty from the first to the
fifteenth of each month. and the former,
from the fifteenth to the end of each month.
The afternoon council under Mr. Hig-
gins has also completed a successful year.
This council is organized like the morning'
session Safety Council and comply to the
same laws. This Sophomore Council will
automatically be the Junior Council of next
Because of the Constitution and of the
changes which will be in effect next year,
we feel certain that the function of the
coming Safety Councils will be assured of'

direvtion of Mr. Burke.. A new swine' hand
was organized and all members entered wiin
great enthusiasm. Several flood fox-trois
were purehas d anl were play: d in assembly
:luring Mart-h. A special "swine"' rehearsal
was held every Wednesday night at the
The orchestra was asked to play at
several outside oeeasions. They performed
at a Pop Foneert at the f'ongregational
Vhureh, the Fatholit- Womanfs Club Play
and at the Ninth Grade Soc-ial. Every
oeeasion was greatly enjoyed by all. We
also played for the Senior High School
play and for a dance after the basketball
game with Framingham.
As a result of the first call for track
fandidates on March 27th, ahout forty boys
reported at the Senior High School Gymna-
sium. Heres a program of exercises and
farm was presented. For about two weeks
the squad trained in the gymnasium. Be-
eause of weather conditions outside prac-
tiee was impossible until April 10. How-
ever, at the first eall for outdoor practice,
what a response! According to statistics
there is a larger squad of track men this
year than for the past ten years. It really
looks, at this writing, as though the team
is in for a good season having such veter-
ans back as "Bill" Paul, "Stretch" Orcutt,
"Bob" Branagan, "Art" Leacu, "Gusty"
Mandino, not to mention numerous others.

The story centered around a young tutor,
Clarence Dinwiddie, who comes to the home
of Grace Kimball to care for her young
son, Jackie. A case of mistaken identity
brings about many humorous situations.
It was one of the best plays put on by
the Senior Class in recent years. The
Class wishes to express their thanks to Miss
Mowry for her fine work.
This season the boys' tennis team, under
the direction of Mr. White, is playing a
schedule of eight matches with other high
schools - including two each with Welles-
ly, Marlboro, Framingham, and Concord.
It will be diiticult to equal the record of
last year's once-defeated team, which lost.
through graduation Bill Davis, star of recent
Florida tournaments. The only veteran
from the 1938 team is the captain, Olin
Hayes, but a group of fast-developing
juniors gives promise of a successful season.
Leading candidates for regular positions
are W. Mahard, K, Benton, G. Morse, and
