ADDRESS OF WELCOME
l,2lI'l'IlIS, 'lieachers and Friends:
Un behalf of the Class of I9-I2 I wish to extend to you a most cordial
welcome to our Class Uay exercises.
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.
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,
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
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

'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
liven since this history was written Mr. Armenio and llomenic Grassey have been
inducted into the Jxflllj.

TO TH H GRADUATICS
l,o, has dawned the day
Arise, gird thyself with armor,
Go forth into the fray.
Let not another's failure cast thee down
Set thyself a goal, and strive
To win thyself a crown.
Remember money is the God in whom men trust.
Be not deceived, wealth is power,
But power will fade into ashes and dust.
For faith it is that leads us on,
Faith that makes the dark day bright
And after tempest brings the calm.
Thy apprenticeship now is o'er
Advance into the world with honor
Let thine own true spirit soar.
All the teachings of these days gone by
Cherish them within thine heart and say
"Farewell, Farewell to Natick High!"

CLASS SONG - 1942
How sad the thought that soon we must part,
Teachers and schoolmates so close to our heartg
Soon only mem'ries left to revere,
Menfries and friendships so long we'ye held dear.
Dear Alma Mater, list to our song-
From your true teachings our hearts will not stray
Loyal to thee, though distance be long-
Dear Alma Mater, we'll love thee alway,
Dear Alma Mater, we'll love thee alway.
Parents and teachers say not "farewell,"
Out in the wide world where we may dwell,
Our thoughts will ever be turning to you,
Your faithful guidance will carry us thru.
Farewell, dear teachers, classmates, adieu,
May all you hope for surely come true.
May all you strive for be blest by the rightg
All of your pathways with sunshine be bright.

Tune of "Beautiful Dreamer
The sign on the door proclaimed to the worldthat "Madame Olympia"
was now open for business. 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
of State ....
of Treasury .
Postmaster General . . .

"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
"'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
"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."
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'. Outside joan Pierce
Rita Maloon, and Melvin Freedman are selling newspapers edited by Frances

"I see large objects," she recites. "But of course, they are the palm
trees of Florida. I can hear someone calling, 'Children, come heref Ir is the
voice of none other than our Rosalie Grant. Rosalie is vacationing here in Florida
with her nine children while her husband is hard at work in New York."
"Now I hear a voice crying for help in the distance. Life guard Ifddie
Williams is rushing out to save the victim, who turns out to be Marie Lundberg.
Caught by the excitement of this dramatic rescue are Richard Davis, who is
rushing from his ice cream parlor together with Irene Chenette, and Dorothy
Gleason. whom he has recently employed. Other onlookers are june Macumher,
Mary Leacu, Rita Killeen, Katharine Garvey and Ann Fair, all of whom are
taking a short vacation from their secretarial duties up in Boston. Florid:1's catch
of the year, Robert Topham, who is hard to find but easy to keep, is attracted
by the excitement of the crowd."
"At the far end of the beach the shrill peal of a siren interrupts the
scene. An ambulance is approaching now en route to the Robert Davis I-lospital
which is situated nearby. Andrew Zicko is driving while Dana Winner assists
him. In the back of the ambulance are two nurses, Estelle Nelson and Ruth
W'allace with Doctors Arthur Dupuis and Robert Pond. Upon arriving at their
destination Dr. Ralph Proctor and Louise Thurston, head supervisor, take
charge of the occupant of the ambulance, who happens to be Ann McCarty. Dr.
Geneva Gilbert is another member of the staff while Marjorie Dumas is very
capably filling the roll of receptionist."
"The crystal ball now reverts to another scene on the beach I
see two figures resting leisurely on the white sands. As the ball clears I can
identify these two figures as those of Priscilla Fairbanks, a New York model, and
Lois Wentworth, dress designer from the same city. Priscilla is reading a letter
to Lois, which she recently received from friends in Natick."
"Madame Olympia interrupts to say that with the greatest concentra-
tion and support from us she might be able to detect the contents of the letter,

ADDRESS OF WELCOME
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
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."
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
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
"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
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
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
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
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
Mosse irisniure imnmv

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.

failure of Charlie Sargentk ankle to heal
properly, played havoc with the team's success
and the coach's plans.

hands of Marlboro High, and it was in this
game that Palladino was injured. However,

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
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
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.

year were held on VVednesday, in Room I9,

Except for the general projects which are
carried on each year, the council has been un-

The orchestra this year had a much
better balanced instrumentation than that of
previous years. 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.
