We the class of I9-Q, sincerely believe that we are very fortunate in being able to hold these exercises during this National Crisis. Nlle realize that children in countries at war are often not even allowed to attend school and we appreciate the opportunities afforded us. Vlle wish to thank all of you parents, teachers and friends who have niade this gathering possible and we hope to be a credit to this community in the years to come. JOHN MUFFATT HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1942 The Class of I9-I2 made its first appearance in Natick High School in the fall of l939. VVe were the first class since 193-I to be housed with the seniors and juniors, with the exception of a few cooperative and willing students who remained at Alnnior High. These students came over to the high school every afternoon to take typewriting from Miss Vllildbur. An active Glee Club was arranged under the new music supervisor, Rodney May. Many sophomores were in the Glee Club, and we were enter- tained by this club on several occasions. As sophomore class officers we elected Alfred lfdwards, President Vllilliam lflorio, Vice President, Robert Bennett, Treasurer: and Shirley Kilmer, Secretary. Under the able supervision of these officers, and with the guidance of Miss Hayes, our class advisor, and Mr. Hill, then principal, the officers worked hard in an effort to promote enough spirit in the sophomore class to have a prom. But, alas, it was not to be. Many of our boys went out for sports, but the one outstanding lad in football, during our sophomore year, was Charles "Kotchie" Sargent. "Korchie" played in many games and proved himself to be a great football player. Although "Kotchie" has left school, due to an injury received while playing football, we all wish him great success in whatever field he chooses to follow. ln the fall of 1940, we were welcomed back to school by lNlr. Wciieidbllry, our new principal. Mr. Vvoodbury was chosen to succeed Mr. Hill, who left Natick to become principal in Hingham High School. Our class officers for our junior year were Melvin Freedman, Presidentg Geraldine Brown, Vice President, Robert Bennett, Treasurer, and Shirley Nliles, Secretary. A very capable junior executive board was organized, and was responsible for the election of the committees which made the Junior Prom a memorable success. ' The various athletic clubs made wise choices in electing the following captains: football, Co-captains Ernest Parker and Nicholas Sciannag hockey, Co-captains Frank Miccile and Dana Vllinner, basketball, Reginald Matthews, and baseball, Robert McNeil. Vllith the beginning of our senior year we faced a handicap in the form of a semi-constructed addition to our Alma Mater. Many of the teachers acquired laryngitis trying to make themselves heard above the din of the work- THF SASSAMON 9 men. This construction eliminated many social activities because the supplies were kept in the gymnasium, and in the assembly hall. In the last of March assemblies were resumed with the seniors having one assembly, and the sophomores and juniors having another. It was not until April 10, 19-12 that an assembly was held when all three classes participated. Robert Bennett, as President of the Student Council, led all assemblies The seniors felt a little slighted when they were not assigned to the new homerooms, and now that the building is nearly complete, many of us wish we were going to be here to enjoy and to profit from the new lunch room. the lockers, and the soundproof music room. The campaigning of class officers was colorful and exciting. The follow- ing were elected to be the permanent officers of the class of 1942: John Moffatt, Presidentg Malcolm Burnham, Vice Presidentg Robert Saunders, Treasurer, and Olympia Grupposo, Secretary. ln sports Natick had a great year, but the football team suffered ll defeat at the hands of Framingham. Relations with Dedham were severed when Dedham refused to play a postponed football game. Our pent up emotion was later released at a football dance, where we were entertained by some of our brave classmates. The football captain for the fall of 19-12, Robert Palladino, was announced at this dance. Our winter sports were also marked with success. ln hockey Natick ended in a tie with Dedham for second place. Frank Miccile, Norman Clancy, and Dana VVinner were members of the first team of the all-star Eastern Wlassa- chusetts Hockey League. Melvin Freedman and Lawrence Dolph played on the second team. 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. Dorothy Gilleran was selected by the Senior Class and the Faculty to represent Natick High School because of her qualifications of citizenship, patriotism, schol- arship, leadership and character. The American Legion held an oratorical contest in which Irene Chenette participated. She brought fame to herself and to Natick High by winning the second prize in the regional contest. Her speech was entitled "Our Constitu- tion". It was a stirring and unforgettable speech. The declaration of war brought about some changes in our life We buckled down to air raid drills, conservation, and one day each week was devoted to the selling of defense stamps. Morale, police and fire squads were organized under the direction of various teachers. With the coming of the war, we were filled with both sorrow and pride when the following boys left us and entered the armed forces: Buddy Adams and Danny Lennon for the Navy, Warren Miller for the Army, Philip Orleans for the Army Air Corps, and Richard Fahey for the Marines. In addition to our classmates, Mr. Andrews, football coach and science teacher, and Mr. Cronan, our art teacher, left for the Army Air Corps and Field Artillery Reserves re- spectively. Mr. Carey, sophomore English teacher, was inducted on May 1. Natick High is now represented in each division of the armed forces. We all wish these people the best of luck and safe return to our midst. Senior play try-outs were held in March with many students hoping for a part. The cast was well chosen and "Even Since Eve", directed by Mri Higgins, was presented to full houses on both Thursday, April 16 and Fridav. April 17. An added feature of the play was the singing of Shirley Kilmer and Ann McCarty. The Induction of the National Honor Society took place on May 27, 1942. The new members were duly initiated and they will receive their pins today. 5, 'r u i-1 s A s s .rx yi o N 'lihe Senior Reception and Graduation will bring to a close the career of the Class of 1942. lr is with deep regret that we leave Natick lligh School and we sincerely hope that the place we make for ourselves in the world will bring pride into the hearts of the teachers who labored so hard to help make us what v. are. Shirley hliles liven since this history was written Mr. Armenio and llomenic Grassey have been inducted into the Jxflllj.

As we entered the portals of this charming salon we were unaware of the pleasant surprise which was in store for us for how were we to know that "Madame Olympia" was our own little friend of high school days, "Lee" Grupposo? Imagine our still greater delight, when Lee announced to us that by looking in her crystal ball she could give us a glimpse of all out Natick High School classmates at work in their various walks of life. It was with frenzied excitement that we listened to the quiet voice of this effectual person as she began to recall the names of those who were once so familiar to us. "As I glance in my crystal ball I see a large building which appears to be the W7h1te House at Washington, D. C. Looking further, I see President John Moffatt CFD surrounded by his cabinet members, namely:" Secretary of Labor .... George Boyd Secretary of Interior .. Bob Langton Secretary of VVar .... .... G uy Wayne Secretary of Navy .... Warren Reid Secretary Secretary Secretary Secretary Attorney of State .... of Agriculture of Commerce of Treasury . General ..... Postmaster General . . . Bruce Densmore Bob Hall . William Waters .. Bob Saunders .. . Carl Swanson Wilfred Casavant I0 'l' fl li S A S S A Xl U N "There are several people rushing about wildly, but as I look more closely l see that they are office boys, alias, Vvilliam Alcock, Arthur Bennett and .lohn Ryan." "'l'he globe is now blurring for .lanitor Shea's dust has stirred Ahl It is clearing and l now see Griffith Stadium where the Vklashington Senators are playing the New York Yankees On the mound for the 'Yanks' is Richard Paul while Bob McNeil will do the chucking for Vflashington. 'lihe catcher for the Senators is strolling out now and I recognize him as our own "Bud" Young. ln the Yankees infield are .lohn Arena on first and the ever present Frank hficcile is at shortstop, which supplies them with plenty of color from Natick! Class of l942. 'lio give added vest to the line-up I notice Vinny Uuarino playing the role of batboy. On the Wfashington team the two already mentioned hold most of the limelight along with Fred Alexander who is utility infielder and bencliwarmerf' "Behind that plate I see a very popular man, who is the one and only Carl Schavone in the role of umpire. It seems Carl is doing an excellent job of calling the halls and strikesf' "As I glance down behind third base I find an All-girl band doing its part in celebration of the opening game. 'Dot' Beale is leading the band while Helen Sweet assists her. Seated on the bench before them is Reggie Mathews who is busy chewing peanuts." Nllsherettes, capably directing the fans to their seats, include: Ann Hapenny, Virginia Hall, jamilla Haddad and Helen Hawkes, while Charles Barnard, john Hunter, Robert jennings and Robert Lane do their part as ushers." "And now, mingled with the music of the band as well as the voices of the thousands of fans I hear a hoarse voice shouting 'get them while their hot, folks - get them while their hot.' VVho should it be but Dominic Grassev " "Filing down the aisles to take their places in the boxes are manv representatives from the Army. In the lead is General James Lowry, who is assisted by his aides, Corporals james Lefter and Williani Balcom. Bringing up the rear are Privates Harold Bennett, Robert Bennett and Fred Bergstrom along with the Head Mechanic, Paul Devlin." "I hear two baseball fans loudly expressing their opposite opinions of Ted Wlilliams and joe DiMaggio. Looking more closely I recognize the speakers as Ronald Hardy and Nick Quatrale who have left their peanut stand to quietly 1 ? J watch the game." "ffrnest Parker, New York's Mayor, now enters the park with gi great deal of pomp followed by his lovely group of secretaries, Dorothy Higgins. Helen Hollingsworth, Naomi Hoyte, Antoinette Imbridge, Mildred Kadlik, Helen Kerivan, Florence and Mary l,aVoie and Barbara Barry. Following the group are Durwood Rosenberg accompanied by his aides, Vito Sciretta, Nick Scianna and Bertil Stenquistf' "On the field Parker Smith, Robert Hunt and Mano Salos, ace photo- graphers, can be distinguished." "Overhead can be heard the roar of a souadron of planes led by head pilot, Lawrence Marshall. with his fellow pilots, Robert Marshall, Ernest Nlills. Robert Mordis and Gordon Newton." "As Umpire Schavone drops the ball thrown to him by Mayfor Parker . . the scene before me commences to fade." "VVith a twist of my crystal ball I take vou to the next coast. In San Francisco Vl'alter Ruigrok is holding his annual flower show. Assisting him are his ace gardeners, Arthur Borghesi, Arthur Swanson and John Rooney. Flower pickers are Rachel Ramuno, Barbara Riker, Phyllis Nelson, Mary Reagan, Philo- mena Cardellichio and Arlene Rockwood." THE SASSAMON 11 "Across the street from the flower show is a tiny shop by the name of 'Butch's Breakfast Bar'. Mario Zonghi, proprietor of the little establishment, has not forgotten his former classmates. Among those employed are Mary Alice Greene, Mary Raghasio and the I-Ialpin twins as soda jerkers while the charming waitresses, who incidentally are receiving large tips, are Dorothy Roland, Mary Saviano, Madeline Scarano and Marguerite Kane." 4nA s I hear the music in the distance the scene shifts to the boulevard in San Francisco where a band, representing the Salvation Army is approaching. I see drum majorettes Geraldine Brown, Dolly Pelullo, Marjorie Condon, Ruth Webster, Virginia Ulrich and Betty Stadig in the lead. Madeline Schavone is the chime player while Doris Severson plays on her bazooka. Ada Sheehan is carrying the drum for George VVallace. Pulling the new portable piano wagon is Helen Soter and Betty Lou Styles while Verna Hodgson is playing it. Picking up discarded rubber bands and cigarette cartons is Stella Taddeo who is doing this for the benefit of the Salvation Army Relief. Alba Tassinari is carefully packing these remnants into boxes in preparation for their disposal at the Salva- tion Army Station." "As the band turns the corner out of my view I spy a sign on the opposite side of the Boulevard which reads, 'Valle and Wetmore Book Shop' Glancing inside the store I met Hazel Thayer and Dorothy Thorsen who are enthusiastically endeavoring to sell Leonard Tetreault's latest best-seller 'VVIW I Don'r Go Out With Women' or 'These Rising Prices'.

ADDRESS OF WELCOME GRADUATION Parents. Teachers, and Friends: Ir gives me pleasure as president of the Class of 1942 to welcome you to our graduation exercises. In these days of economy, of rationing, and of dangers from the enemy, let us be thankful that we can gather here this after- noon to enjoy an hour that means much to all of us. To those who have made our education possible, we are deeply grrateful. VVe realize that it is the youth of this nation who will be called upon in the near future to go forth and to help speed up production, that the war may be won and that a just peace may be attained. Democracy must not perish from the earth. Ir is our job to see that the liberties we enjoy will be a part of the heritage of all future citizens of America, just as you and your forbears made them safe for us. Let us say, as Charles Reigner said in his poem "The American VVay": NO' God of right, make all our hearts to thrill anew Vfvith ardor for the way of life our fathers won. VVith passion for democracy our lives imbue, For Right makes Might-to this event the ages won." john Xloffatt FAREWELL ADDRESS There are some events in life that can never become commonplace. no matter how often the ritual of them may be repeated. The scene of graduation may be conventional to many, but its human factors are ever fresh and dynamic -new ones succeeding each year to take the places of those which have gone before. These are our farewells to Natick High - that is our material and physical farewells. As our lives move onward, there is no doubt that with each succeeding year our cherishings of high school days will increase. The memories of them will forever live in our hearts wherever our paths may lead us or what- ever fate may befall us. Though the world today is in a troubled and thoroughly turmoiletl state, the opportunities for jobs in all fields of endeavor are greater than ever before. Today, a person graduating from high school is not confronted with a difficult problem in finding a job, whether it be for the purpose of following it as aflife's career or for the furtherance of an education. But these are also times when we must be stronger in heart. faith and spirit. Hardships and sorrows that have not been known before must be faced. It is said that thev are stronger in arms who are stronger in heart. To keep our faith forever high. we must thus look to the spirit within us. So it is that faith is the essential emotion in a man's heart that will give I4 Tllli SASSAMON him courage, endurance and power to overcome obstacles. Vflhat is it that brings the explorer through trackless wilderness to his final goal? It is that everlasting flame of faith that burns in every man's heart. We can look back into the pages of time and find this magic emotion of man committing masterful deeds. If George YVashington did not have faith in his men, and his country, how different Americals history might have been! Abraham Lincoln, by his faith in the endurance of the union brought America through another crisis. Such examples of faith by great leaders of time have played major roles in the development and construction of countries. "Faith is a subtle charm VVhich binds us to the infinite, the voice Of a deep life within that will remain Until we crowd it thence." Vflith Shakespeare, we must recognize that nothing counterfeit can long endure and that it is in its natural spontaneity and genuineness that youth prevails. "lo thine own self be true And it must follow, as the night the day, lhou canst not then be false to any man." 'l'hus in striving for achievement, we must be true to ourselves and realize that there is but one road to success - the hard straight way. You can never save time by cutting across the quicksand. Classsmates, let us start out with that unconquerable belief - the belief in mankind's goodness, the belief in our ambition, the belief in our ability to make good, and with the faith that we shall do credit to this school which has educated us. In our last farewells, l believe that we should also pay some sort of tribute to those of our class who are already in the service of their country and to those who before long will join them in striving for the rights of humanity and final peace. Of the parting word which must now be ours, Byron has said: "Farewell, a word, that must be and hath been A sound that makes us lingerg yet farewelllu Carl Swanson YOUTITS FAITH IN AMERICA -Is the war clouds darkened the world in 1939 we in America felt that it was something which would affect only the people on the other side. l,ittle did we realize that this war was aimed directly at us. Men did much talking but took little action. But inwardly the youth of America was pre- pared. Athletics of all types have sharpened our minds and bodies so that with the attack on Pearl Harbor we were able to put into practice the ideas which would make our country strong. Vile wanted to do something! IVe were immediately possessed with the spirit of patriotism. Vile knew and understood Americanism. I . Vflhat is this Americanism? Those of us who have enjoyed all of the privileges, all of the luxuries - all of the power of this great country realize that our patriotism arises from a love - yes, from a Faith that we have in everything American. It is because of our very belief that America is the home of freedom and over all alike waves her sacred banner of liberty that we the youth of Natick are determined to enter this war-torn world in the same spirit that enabled our forbears in '76, '63, '98, and '17 to give to the world a civilization that is the envy of all nations and all ages. THE SASSAMON 15 It is because every person living on this chosen land can say those three simple words, "I am free," that we have faith that God will not forsake us in our own hour of turmoil. We truly believe that we have a constitution and a government which is as perfect as man can create - that we are neither bondsmen nor serfs nor slaves. It is because of all this that every student of this class will never rest in the performance of his duties until America is once again blessed with an everlasting peace. The Prime Minister of England, Winston Churchill, once said of the boys in the Royal Air Force after they had saved England from Nazi destruc- tion, "Never in history was so much owed to so few." Truly do I believe that those same words will be said of the boys and girls who are about to pllt into practice the deep-seated concepts which have been imbued into all the youth of America. Never can America fail for never will our faith falter. All of our tradi- tions impress us with the need that former patriots have had for a victorious morale - we will have no less. Many of you are perhaps wondering what part faith has played in the formation of the United States. Let us go back to those days when our country was in its infancy. We were a young struggling nation of hardy frontiersmen whose only aim was to live peacefully with full expression of press, speech, and religion. Countless infringement of our ideals compelled us to declare our indepen- dence. To enforce our claims, stores of ammunition were concealed at Lexington and Concord. Highly trained mercenaries of the British government quaiters at Boston descended upon the few untrained and poorly armed Minute Men assem- bled to defend this ammunition. The battle that these men staged will be long remembered in history. With what did they fight? With superior arms? VVith better trained leaders? No, my friends, but with a faith so strong that it over-came all odds. Superior forces of British soon had the Colonial Armies at bay. VVash- ington was forced to retreat many times until his men were assembled at Valley Forge. While at Valley Fprge, the condition of his men was pitiable Not one in ten was properly clad for the rough winter and no one had a sufficient amount of food, but the faith that these men had in Washington and themselves. was so great that these conditions only made the victoryimore glorious. Today we are faced with a like situation. A treacherous foe has struck us in the hack. The taste of victory is dulled by the defeats, but the day of reckoning is not far in the future. If we will show our faith in the leaders and men who are so valiantly fighting the battle, this day will be only so much nearer. Lincoln felt that right would triumph over might in his execution of the Civil War. The North's faith was dimmed after the early defeats but with the decisive victory at Gettysburg, this dormant faith grew so strong that it was only a matter of time until the final and complete victory. The fact that the North was not a fair-weather country proves that we must have faith today. The first World War was fought to make the World safe for Democracy. As in all peace treaties, one side, the so-called vanquished, does not receive the fruits of victory. This bred a hatred and a despair in the vanquished nations. Thus it was not too difficult for Communism, Facism, and Nazism to rear their ugly heads. The men had lost faith in their old leaders and themselves. VVhen such hypocrites as Hitler and lVlussolini, promised them food for every meal, the people of these nations could not help but place their faith in these men. Little did they realize at the time that their faith had never been so ill-placed. Today we are fighting nations of men whose leaders have betrayed them. These leaders gave to the people but took back tenfold every iota that they leased. Mosse irisniure imnmv 14 EAST eemmi srmgr lo 'l' H li S A S S A Nl O N ln a country such as ours, there is no reason why we should not carry the torch of faith so that all may see it. Our Constitution is so constructed as to huild faith. It gives us in hlack and white, many reasons why we are the most fortunate people who inliahit the earth. XYhen you reconsider the events that have occurred during the past two years, don't you find that the American way of living is the only way for you. and havcn't you in thoughtful moments, asked yourself what you could tlo to make the ideals of American Democracy a reality? Faith makes men. Never has this heen more sell-evident than in the present strife. Amt-rica's heroes like Captain Colin Kelly may he killed, hut their faith will not he stopped even hy death.. General Douglas lVlacArthur upon arriving in Australia said "I will keep the soldiers' faith!" Now today while American men are fighting for Democracy thev must have a deep-rooted conviction that the battle which they are waging is worth fighting. 'lihis conviction will not grow out of hearing long-winded political speeches. It will come through the belief that this war must be won if the American ideals for which our forefathers sacrificed their lives are to be pre- served. Youth will do its part to bring us ultimate victory. 7 V Frank Mussoni IHP SNSSANION 1 L.-.........l 4 is 'T urultg ,jtlllrtttlters I9-ll - 1942 XVoodbury, E. Davis Sears, Harold C.

FOOTBA LL The football team enjoyed fair success. with a record of 5 won, 3 lost and one tie. Only the loss to Framingham on Thanksgiving n-orning prevented our hoys from having a really great season. Although, at the start of the season, the niaterial was excellent, injuries hampered the players throughout the regular season. Bobby Palladino's shoulder injury and the failure of Charlie Sargentk ankle to heal properly, played havoc with the team's success and the coach's plans. The season opened with a defeat at the hands of Marlboro High, and it was in this game that Palladino was injured. However, on Columhus Day, Natick displayed ,flreill form and defeated NVQ-llesley lligh in their traditional game, with a last minute hteath- taking finish. 'lihis inspired the Red and Blue to go out and heat Milford, Needham and Norwood in succession, Un Thanksgiving Day morning Natick High presented a starting line-up of Mathews and Lefter, ends, Rooney and Co-Capt.

SAFETY COUNCH, The Safety Council organized this year with Robert Langton as President and Helen Lockhart as Vice President. Several changes were made in the organization: the most important was the fact that the number was reduced from sixty to less than thirty. lt proved to be a most effective measure, and the work of the Council progressed efiiciently. It is worthy of note that fewer .varrants were given out this year than at my time since the Council has been in operation. This is due, in great part, to the cooperation of the student body. Meetings were held weekly. and, at that time, various problems were discussed per- taining to traffic conditions in and about the school. Many suggestions were offered. and these were sometimes the subject of heated debate. This year, a new code of warrants was devised. No more warnings are given the students, but when a warrant is given. it ngust be signed not only by a Patroller but also by a Floor Commissioner. The Floor Commissioner then presents it to the entire Council for its consideration, By this means, any chance of prejudice against a particular student is eliminated. That the system 'tworksn is proven by the fact that only three students questioned the decision of the Coun- cil during the year. It must be remembered that the Safety Council is always open for suggestions from the members of the school, and it is only by your help and your cooperation that we can succeed. This year, a Corridor Patrol was organ- ized to assume charge of traffic during class sessions. Over sixty students are members of this Patrol. Their duty consists of checking cach student for a pass during school time. This is our first year with a Corridwr Patrol, and from this year's experience. we have learned a great deal about forming an even more successful Patrol for next year. Early in March, Mr. Harper assumed charge of the Council. After the play was presented, Mr. Higgins again took over the position of Faculty Adviser. 53 'I'llli SASSA MON S'l'l'DENT CUVNCIL Back Row-XV. H1ll1'llllll,.hhv. MacPherson, R. Saunders, j.

R uth VVebster The Student Council is composed of eighteen regular members, eighteen alternate members, a faculty advisor, the editor-in-chief of the Sassamon, and the presidents of each class. It is the general governing body of school activities in Natick lligh School, and en- dtavors to help both students and faculty. and to promote all activities that are for the best interests of the school. Meetings this year were held on VVednesday, in Room I9, av the close of school. Except for the general projects which are carried on each year, the council has been un- zd.le to do much in the way of special activi- ties, due to the remodeling of the building. and the general confusion which has con- sequently ensued. At the fall meeting of the Eastern Divi- sion of Student Councils, four students repre- sented Natick High School. However, the Uonvention which was originally scheduled lo be held in Swampscott was cancelled he- cause of national defense activities. TIIE SASSJAMXJN H URC'HES'I'R.-X Back Row-J. Cummings, E.

This is evidenced hy a balanced string section, brought ahout hy the addition of a viola and a cello, and an improved brass section, also three skilled players on the corner, and the addition of Iwo horns. Because of the huilding repairs, the orchestra's participation in the assemblies nas negligible this year. They gave several outside concerts, and were received lwy ap- preciative audiences upon each occasion. wel 'lllli SASSAMUIX . t . i . GIRLS' Q,l.l,l.

For the first time it sound track was em- ployed for olf-stage effects. and this, also, was successful. The story concerns the activities of Susan 'lil.1ke, played with vivacity and dramatic talent, by lrene Chenette, and her friend Betsy Erwin. played by Olympia Cirupposo, with great life and bubbling energy. Both want to get on the school paper, the "Penguin", but are hampered in their etlorts by lohnny Vlover. played by Edwin YVilliams ilr., and l.i-. pal, Spud Erwin, played by Robert Pond. l'he boys helieye that girls do not belong on 1 newspaper, and are supported in this belief by johnny! father, played hy Robert Lang- ton, and Nlr. Quinn. Principal of the school. played hy Nlalcolm Burnham. 'l'he girls tinfl support in Nlrs. Clover. played by llelen Lockhart, and Miss Yvillard, the new journalism teacher, played by Pris- cilla Fairbanks. To add to the troubles of the boys, bliss I.ucy-belle l,ee, from Chattanooga, Tennessee, arrives. Lucybelle, the typical glamour girl, played most effectively hy Ruth Yvebster, takes the boys minds off the "Penguin" As if this were not enough, Susan infects the group with measles, XVe would go on to describe the play, lut suffice it to say that all complications are ironed out before the final curtain. Special attention should be given to Robert llall, who played the part of a small town policeman, for his line characterization Carl Schavone played the role of Preston l:ughes, the sophisticated football captain, Mary Ross and Betty Statlig were the ttlicient prompters of the play. ln addition to the above, special credit should be given to Edwin VVilliams jr., who played the lead in the playgand also con- structed much of the scenery, To all who helped malte our play a success we are deeply grateful.
