l,.XRliN'l'S, 'ill-I.M'lIl'IRS .-mn l"Rll'INDS,
Un behalf of the Class of 1944 it is my privilege to welcome you to our Class
Hay lixercises. It is with sincere appreciation for the education you have made
possible for us that we go forth into the various helds of endeavor. May we all do
the job we are destined to do in a manner that will make you proud of us.
1 CLASS HISTORY
NUI' since World War I has any class been charged with more serious obligations
than has our class of 1944. We are proud that we have accepted these obliga-
tions and discharged them with some degree of success.
lr. 1941 we entered Natick High School. As sophomores we were at times
bewildered with the newness of High School life. We were faced with many new
experiences. The school building was in the final stages of remodeling. This work
curtailed our school activities because our assembly hall and gymnasium had
to be used as storage rooms.
The class elections were soon under way and from that time on, we felt
that we were really ah important part of Natick High School. Herbert Parker,
President: Thomas Zicko, Vice President: jean Simoni, Secretary: and William
Wrightson, Treasurer were our class officers, and many students were active in
sports while others joined the Orchestra, Glee Club, Sassamon Board, and Safety
On December 8, all the pupils in the school were assembled to hear the Presi-
dent's Declaration of War. Ifrom that day on there was a noticeable change in
our school life. First Aid classes became a part of our regular school program-
Police. Fire and .Xir-Raid Warden groups were organized-a class in Home Nurs-
ing and Nutrition was begun and each day seemed to make us more war con-
scious. We realized and accepted the responsibilities that the war brought.
During the summer of 1942 there was a change in our school administration.
Mr. Woodbury, our principal, was made superintendent of schools to fill the
vacancy created when Mr. Hall accepted a similar position in Arlington, Massachu-
setts. Mr. Blaffeo was appointed principal and he welcomed us at the beginning of
our junior year. Class elections soon followed and the officers for 1942-43 were
lidward t'lasby, President: Robert Mahoney, Vice President: Barbara Buell, sec-
retary: and Arthur Fair, Treasurer. Our war work continued with even more
enthusiasm as Natick High School boys entered the various branches of the
armed service. Our War Savings Stamp Program, under the direction of Mr. Quacken-
bush. was inaugurated.
The Junior Prom, with its colorful decorations and excellent music, was the
highlight of our junior year. In March of 1943, Jean Huleatt brought honor to
our class by winning a national award in the League of Nations Contest. The
climax of this memorable year was the election of five of our classmates to the
National Honor Society.
THE SASSAMON 7
In September 1943, we returned from a vacation of work and play to learn
that again we had a new principal. Mr. Sears, sub-master and Head of our Com-
mercial Department, is now the acting principal of Natick High School while Mr.
Maffeo is serving our country as a Lieutenant JG in the United States Navy.
The permanent officers of the class of 1044 were chosen in November. They
are Edward Clasby, Presidentg Arthur Fair, Vice President: Ellen Carey, Secre-
tary: and Robert Garbutt, Treasurer.
The following were elected to be captains of our school teams for 1943-44:
Football-Arthur Fairg Hockey-Edward Clasbyg Basketball-Joseph Francioseg
Baseball-William MacPherson and john Rego.
The Football Team coached by Mr. Plausse enjoyed a successful season. The
highlight of the season was the victory over Framingham on Thanksgiving Day.
The Hockey Team coached by Mr. McManus had a successful year also. Six
players were selected to play for the Eastern Massachusetts All Star Team. The
Basketball Team coached by Mr. Slamin was handicapped by the loss of a cap-
tain and other players who joined the armed services. The Baseball Team was
lead by john Rego and coached by Mr. Marso. Bill MacPherson's untimely death
was deeply felt by his fellow teammates.
Bill MacPherson was a fine athlete and a popular student leader. His pass-
ing is mourned by all the members of this class. .Another real loss to the class of
'44 and to Natick High School was the death of our Latin teacher, Miss Louise
Sullivan, on March 14.
Our Senior Play ffHappy Days" directed by Miss Donahoe played to a full
house and a most enthusiastic audience on April 14. Every senior was present to
witness a splendid performance. jean Simoni's songs and the selections by the
school orchestra directed by Mr. May brought additional enjoyment to a very
pleasant evening. A new stage setting was made under the direction of Mr. Buckley,
This received many favorable comments from the public.
With the opening of the Cushing General Hospital at Framingham, the junior
Red Cross, under the inspiring leadership of Mrs. McManus, and the Camp and
Hospital Council und-er the direction of Miss Shannon became active and vitally
interested in doing all they could to give comfort and happiness to the soldiers
Jean Huleatt was elected to represent Natick High School as a delegate to the
annual convention of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and Barbara
Buell was Natick High School's representative in the American Legion Oratorical
The National Honor Society held its induction ceremony on May 17. The
new members were formally inducted and they will receive their pins today.
Our Senior Reception and Graduation remain as the last formal functions of
the Class of 1944. Several of our boys are now in the armed forces and with
graduation, many more will be answering the call to serve our country. Their
service should bring new honor to our Alma Mater.
We have had much pleasure and happiness in our school life. We have also
experienced real sadness and sorrow, but through it all we have tried to carry on
like true Americans and our hope for the future is that the ideals we believe in
may become a reality for all the world. ARTHUR 3, FAIR
S 'I'Hl'i SASSA MON
IN behalf of my client, the Class of 1944, of Natick High School, of the town
of Natick, State of Massachusetts, l'. S. A., we have gathered together upon
this solemn and serious occasion to listen to her last will and testament, and
to receive from her dying hand the many gifts she has to bestow in her last moments.
Owing to the tlighty condition of her brain, and the unusual disturbance of
its gray matter, she begs me to state for her that she may quite possibly have
been mistaken in her inventory but such things as she thinks she has, she hereby
gives into your possession, praying that you will accept them as a sacred trust from
one who has gone before.
The document as duly drawn up and sworn to is as follows:
"We, the Class of 1944, about to pass out of the sphere of education, and
in full possession of a "crammed" mind, well-trained memory and almost super-
human understanding do make and publish this, our last will and testament, hereby
revoking and making void all former wills or promises by us at any time hereto-
fore made, or mayhap, carelessly spoken, one to the other, as the thoughtless wish
of an idle hour.
To the Sophomore we leave the hope of climbing the ladder of success and
one clay reaching the ultimate goal of possessing the honored and glorious title
To the juniors we leave a vivid definition of how to maintain the position of
Seniors without exerting their mental capacities. May they uphold our dignity
in spite of their natural light-mindedness and irresponsibility.
To our beloved faculty we give all our amazing knowledge and startling in-
formation. We know the knowledge which we have imparted to them must be en-
tirely new to the world as well as to all the great professors in the country. If
the faculty see the need, they are authorized to give out such of this informa-
tion to the world as they may feel the world is ready to receive.
We leave to Mr. Sears our sincere thanks for his advice and never ending
efforts to aid us in our studies. Also we make over to him, a heavy mortgage
on our future in the great unknown beyond.
To Mrs. Hayes we leave a snow plow to enable her to plow through the
mightiest snow drifts between Natick and Somerville to bring sunshine to Room 37.
To Miss Crocker and Miss Davis we bestow the book "How to Apply Stage
Makeup" with or without lightsf
To Mrs. McManus we bequeath a diligent group of Red Cross Workers,
also an extended additional structure to Room 26, to be used for the sole pur-
pose of storing Red Cross donations.
We leave in the hands of Miss Shannon our ever improving SASSAMON with
the sincere wish that she will encourage her staff to supply news items of all
the events of lives, past, present and to come.
To Miss Donahoe we leave a complete Fifth Avenue wardrobe to enable her
to supply the future Senior Play Casts with their ideal costumes.
We give and bequeath to Miss Rafferty a sweet and unbroken succession of
restful nights and peaceful dreams. No longer need she lie awake to worry over
temperamental seniors, since we have proven our worth, our merit and our attain-
THE SASSAMON 9
To Miss Connolly and Mr. Marso, our class advisors, we leave our grate-
fulness for their many helpful suggestions during our three years at high school.
To Miss Griffin we leave a pair of blood hounds to enable her to immediately
obtain a trail of the lost persons.
We the following members of this vast body desiring to make individual
bequests do hereby give from the great generosity of our hearts the following
I, Arthur Fair, leave my football captaincy to Mickey Burke's successor.
May he lead Natick through as prosperous a season as Arthur enjoyed.
I, Ellen Carey, leave to anybody who will manage as I have done my troubles
as Class Secretary.
We, Robert Mahoney and Lucy Lentini, bequeath our dancing ability to
Jean Riker and Robert Marden.
We, Joann Sweeney and Charles Musgrave leave a cheer for Natick High
School on the condition that it be used at all football games, and it must be
thoroughly inoculated with the spirit of victory for our gallant players.
I, Miriam Ingalls, bequeath my good looks and pleasing disposition to Bobbie
I, Mary Burke, leave my sweet and quiet manner to Dorothy Killeen.
I, Mary Jane Powers, leave to june Brennaman my ability to please teachers
and friends under the most trying circumstances.
We, Marion McGovern, jean Simoni and Dorothy Munro bequeath our beauti-
ful voices to Harriet Hayes, jean Riker and Dolly Grupposo.
I, Ann Ahern, leave my overwhelming sense of humor to any underclassman
who will giggle at the most inopportune times. Apply early and avoid the rush.
I, Earl Chase, leave my ever present gaiety, with or without the teachers con-
sent, to james Lockhart.
I, jean Huleatt bequeath my attainments and other deserved notoriety to
any Junior girl who will serve as an inspiration to my' classmates.
I, Robert Byrne, leave a portion of my height and weight to Albert LePage.
We, Robert Thurston and john Rego, leave the secret of our methods of
playing baseball to john Noonan and Leo Grady.
I, Edward Clasby, leave my willingness to serve Natick High School to Daniel
We, Bertha Jackson and Theresa Berthiaume, leave our ability to be helpful
to Nancy Angelo and Christine Boucher.
We, the Senior Class, leave to Natick High School the responsibility of keep-
ing the Minute Man Flag waving over her gallant students who are always striving
to purchase more and more War Bonds and Stamps, with the hope that victory
will soon be ours.
In testimony whereof, we hereunto set our hand and seal, and in the presence
of two witnesses hereinafter named, declare this to be our last will and testament.

THE SASSAMON 11
WELL, at last we're off on the way to the big Field Day exercises heralding
the flnishing of the Natick Stadium, which we now discover, was sponsored
almost entirely by that magnificent Class of 1944.
Imagine our surprise on discovering that our transport crew included pilots
Ivar Olson and Leonard Chiacchia. Surprise of surprises! Radio technician "extra-
ordinaire," Ruth Nussberger is now married and spends her spare time between trips
playing with her five little ones. We received this information from the petite little
hostess, Marie Duprey.
As we neared the Natick Airport, our attention was centered on the beautiful
scenery which was "home" to us.
Almost at the last moment we found that some of our fellow commuters on the
stratoliner were members of the immortal "Class of '44." Robert McGrath is now
a famous public speaking authority: john Mullen has ridden many a famous
horse to glory: and Norman Mills is a famous "Information Please" expert.
On landing, we were met by a large reception committee, among whom were
the two leading socialites, Mary Jane Powers and joan Powers: Rocco Torterella,
the principal of dear old Natick High: and john Marshall, General Manager at
Dennisons. After introductions and formalities were over, a lively conversation
ensued, during which Helen Sellew, proprietor of the best dairy farm in the coun-
try, informed us that she had just heard from Joanne McGrath and Beatrice
Ouilette, telephone operatorsg she also told us that jean Simoni, a well-known
opera singer, and David Sanborn, her accompanist, would not arrive until later
in the evening, because Richard Piard, her chauffeur, had taken sick. Everything
was under control though, because Dr. Robert Thomas had prescribed a remedy.
Special nurse, jean Mosman was on the job keeping faithful watch over him.
We are now approaching the box office. Say, those girls look familiar. Well,
I'll be! It's Bertha Jackson and Dotty johnson. They were always good at selling
tickets. And there's Hope Liscombe in the background helping them. As we ad-
vance through the gate our tickets are collected by Michael Solari and Arthur
Tessier, the regular ticket collectors. just inside are Grace Taylor and jean Spina-
Zola selling programs for the big event. Marion Weilant and Dorothy Whittemore
have joined the party. They are just back from a visit to China where they worked
as foreign missionaries.
As we near the grandstand, there is a terrific amount of hustle and bustle.
Who is it bragging about the structure of the bleachers? Oh, I see now. It's Vincent
Driscoll. His construction company built those bleachers.
We were ushered to our seats by the head usher, Sarop Kaprelian. On the
north side of the field was a huge billboard advertising Christie's "Bow Wow Dog
Food." The food is based on a formula discovered by Thomas Zicko. The sign
said, "For particulars see the head salesman, W'arren Brooks."
Looking to the other end of the field, we see an enormous poster which reads
'tMarilyn's Beauty Shops, Inc." And there is Marilyn Gladu herself waving furiously
at us from the balcony.
Who is this coming down the aisle in the Naval Air Corps uniform? All the
girls are swooning! Oh, I see, it's our old friend, Arthur Fair. W'ith him is our
famous classmate and the man who has done the most work in promoting the
helicopter in Europe, Ralph Howard.
We learn that on hand in the First Aid Station, in case of a riot, is Valerie
I2 THE SASSAMON
Dupuis. Her first aid classes in school must have helped her. Nurses aids, Ann
Christie, Peggy Ciccarelli. and josephine Culcasi are also present to help out if
lt is about time for the exhibition to start. First on the card is listed a midget
auto race in which Gerald llevereaux, who not only won but broke the world's
speed record, will perform. Following this is an aerial demonstration in which
test pilots Edward Barnicle and George Barnabo put two of the newest Kenneth
Crumrine Aircraft Corporation racing planes through their paces. On hand, in case
of accident, in his gleaming uniform. is Fire Chief joe Lavash.
Out on the field, the parade is led by none other than Esther Duff our Drum
Majorette of IO years ago.
There is a great tipping of hats around the center row now. Oh, I see, it's
Robert Kerivan, Selectman from South Natick. I wonder if he is ever late for
board meetings? With him is Alden Clay, President of South Natick, and his
extremely efficient campaign manager, Barbara Buell.
Opposite us we have just noticed a group of naval officers. With the Navy
we have Navy Sub-Commander, William Bernard, Rear Admiral, Kenneth Chan-
nellg Chief Petty Officer, Edward Conlon: and Lieutenant Eugene Talvy. With
the Army, we have Captain Donald Chase: still just a private, Peter Brovelli, and
Corporal Richard McKeon. With them are Dotty Langton and her gang. The
girls still go together and are all Army nurses. You know that gang and how
jean Griffin and Helen Borden used to keep Dot up on all the gossip at school.
Speaking of gossips, there's jean Hunter and Rita Kearns. They are expert talkers
now. They used to practice every day before classes back in old Natick High.
On the way to the Sports exhibits we bumped into Lucy Lentini, adorned in
the very latest fashion. She is now a famous beautician in New York.
Running around wildly is Helen Flynn, secretary of the Athletic .Association
looking for the umpire. From her we learned that Alice Hogan is the bookkeeper
of the association. She used to keep the SASSAMON books.
Who is this with all the dogs? Why, it's Gilda Leavitt! She owns the best
kennel in the country. With her is the very distinguished psychiatrist, Phyllis
Writing up the day's activities is Mary Burke. gossip columnist for the Reid
Blast, the local paper. Its editor is Roger Reid who is also well known as a chicken
raiser. An associate editor is Dorothy Mostecki. Her f'Advice to the Lovelornw
column has received wide recognition. The sports editor, Mary tells us, is Robert
Thurston, who held a similar position on the Sassazuois board ten years ago.
About then the members of our party were served refreshments by jean Living-
ston. head of the refreshment committee which had the franchise for the ball
park. Her assistants were Priscilla McCracken, joel Rice, and Phyllis Prior. tOur
party has just had another addition in the person of a Canadian Army Officer.
Elinor Templel. A
The hrst sports exhibit was football. In this, the enthusiastic coach. Walter
White, demonstrated his system of running through the plays with the boys. He
always was full of pep and ginger. Assisting him was John McGrath who gave
up playing with the Chicago Bears to take this coaching job. At the baseball
exhibit, Edward Clasby, former professional ball player and president of our super
class. was putting the boys through a workout. He had received many bids from
outside colleges. but his intense love for the good old Alma Mater had kept him
THE SASSAMON 13
here. He had as an assistant, George Robinson who showed much promise all
through our school years. Teaching a small boxing class was the former world's
light-heavyweight boxing champion, Leo O'Keefe.
At the head of the girls' gym exhibit was Joanne Sweeney, who, for ten long
years, had brought and kept Natick at the top of the country's girls' gymnastic
records. Her latest assistants were Nancy Stacy and Maxine Spinney.
We had heard that the Cnited States Government was sending a representa-
tive straight from the White House to witness the Natick Field Day. Sure enough!
The representative was jean Huleatt. She said she was going to work for the
Government, but we never thought she'd work in the White House.
I wonder who those two men are that all the girls are gathering around? No!
It couldn't be. But it is! Jimmy Fournier and Richard Hesek. They are head of
the Fournier-Hesek Follies that are going over so big in New York. With them
are two of their secretaries, Rita Angileri and Eleanore Blevins, and the star of
the show, Georgette Goss.
Ah! iVe have another admirer of the stadium. Praising its beauty to the
gathering crowd is john Lavash. The reason? He drew up the blueprints for it.
Here's Barbara Kenny and Maxine Hollett. I see they took time out from their
clothing business to come to the Field Day. They told us that Mary Hughes and
Marjorie Hall were opening their roller skating rink to the public, everything free,
at the conclusion of the Field Day exercises.
At this point we decided that we would leave and visit our Alma Mater. As
we left the field, we saw Ray Slamin and Charles Musgrave, "Superintendents"
of the Stadium, going around picking up trash and waste paper in their honest
and sincere efforts to keep the grounds clean.
Just outside the stadium we stopped at Ellen's Pastry Shoppe for some dainty
delicacies. Ellen Topham and Marilyn Wilcox looked very attractive in their white
uniforms selling their pastry creations.
Outside on the sports bulletin board we noticed a large 18" by 27" "wanted'l
poster. On examining it further we discovered it was for Leo Bird. He was wanted
in three states for bigamy. The notice said to send information to the F. B. I.
office or the chief director, Earle Chase. We all expressed sincere hopes that Leo
would be caught.
I guess Clayton Grant couldnt make it today, I didn't see an ice truck
in the parking lot. Oh, there he is now. He must have forgotten the ice truck.
Incidentally, he is now the owner of the Natick Ice Company.
As we passed through town we saw Shirley Bowers coming out of "Kay and
Lillian's Beauty Parlor," owned and operated by Katherine White and Lillian Went-
zell. Their assistants were the beauty specialists, Mary O'Regan and Shirley
Schneider. They also have a men's department in which Robert Heald wields a
As we went up the school steps, we met Lillian Bennett, whom we were sur-
prised to find was married and the mother of six charming, delightful, little bra-uh,
children. Next we met George Cardellichio, who was well known as the owner of
Americas most famous vineyards.
As we entered the superintendents office, we were not at all surprised to find
that the studious Robert Byrne was the superintendent of Natick schools. He was
a man who, very early in life, learned to appreciate and enjoy all walks of school

life. lfrom here. we walked across the hall into john Rego's, or, in other words,
the principal's office, where we found .-Xnn .-Xhearn, the school nurse, talking to
Rose Angelo, the secretary.
lfirst we went to the bookkeeping department where we found industrious
Barbara .Xlcock head of the department: Theresa Berthiaume was her assistant.
Theresa was Mr. Sears' bookkeeper back in '44, Remember? From there we went
to the linglish Department where we discovered Ellen Carey talking to Martha
Pancho who had just graduated from the Conservatory of Music. The head of the
history department, we discovered, was Rita Nichols. Her pupils later informed
us that history with her was a pleasure and not just another class. We wonder
about her method.
Next we talked to Marjorie McHale, the shorthand and general business
teacher. She received the position because of her ability to take, accurately, dicta-
tion at 500 words a minute.
We finished our tour of the school in the art department where we found
pretty joanne Wigglesworth surrounded by the boy art admirers in her class. As
well as being a good art teacher, she received much recognition from the news-
paper in which appeared her regular comic cartoon strip called "Life With Sister,"
a story of two red-blooded American girls struggling through life.
.Xs it was near suppertime and we were hungry, we left the school and went
downtown to eat at l'rovencal's Restaurant. The restaurant was run by Dorothy
Provencal herself, and Mildred Messinger was the cook. Inside, we met Thomas
Lydon who ran the biggest pig farm in the world. While talking over old times,
he told us that Richard Brady was still station master down here at the railroad
.Xfter supper we were invited to one of the great string of dance halls owned
by Robert Checani. His dance halls featured all of the big-name bands, such as
Robert Taylor, his trumpet and orchestra and famous vocalists, Marion McGovern
and Ilot Monroe. They were the two members of our class who many times
rendered vocal duets at assemblies. Eddie Noyes and his orchestra, which featured
the trumpet duo of Stanley Sherman and Paul Shakespeare and vocalist, Roger
Casavant, were playing at Checanis nightly. As we entered, we were overjoyed at
meeting chief bouncer, john Kirby, after which we were escorted to our tables by
the charming hostess, Miriam Ingalls.
Who should come in behind us but registered nurses, Joyce Webber, Dorothy
Wells, and Ann Sullivan, all escorted by none other than our well-known foot
doctor, Frank Wigglesworth. XYe no sooner sat down when who should come up
but Bob Mahoney. After graciously entertaining us, he left a card advertising the
Parker-Mahoney Dance Studio situated in Natick Square. Janet Barber and Lillian
Flynn. assistant teachers, guarantee to teach anyone ballroom dancing in less than
After dancing a few hours, we were entertained during intermission by Bob

livery happy time has to have an ending, and, after staving it off as long as
possible, we finally had to bid each of our friends goodbye and rush for our plane.

THE SASSAMON 15
AS WE of the Class of 1944 gather together for the last time before we begin our
separate journeys, we realize like Americans everywhere that we have much
to thankful for. Many of our number are already serving in the armed forces.
Many more will soon be wearing uniforms proudly. Those of us who may not
be fortunate enough to serve in the armed forces because we are too young, or
because of some other reason, will serve our country to the best of our ability in
whatever field we may find ourselves. May we make you proud of us! The youth of
America is ready to serve.
JAMID a world of chaos and uncertainty such as we are facing at present it is
harder than ever for one to go forward with confidence, high ideals and
hopes of a better social and economic world to follow. Each previous graduating
class has believed that its problems were the greatest, but at this period in history
it must be realized that on the shoulders of our generation these hopes for world
trust and cooperation will rest more heavily.
We have long realized that nowhere in the world has there been such great
opportunity for young people to receive an education as in America, an education
which is planned to help each make a living and to maintain and better his standard
of living. The background which we have received at Natick High School will help
us to realize and appreciate the better things of life whether we further our educa-
tion in college or enter the business world.
Our educational background has also prepared us to combat the uncertainty
that awaits us. We are greatly indebted to our American educational system for
providing us with the knowledge to meet and solve these problems with courage
It is only with an informed and literate people that our democratic way of
life may function and improve. Thus, we firmly believe that each succeeding class
should have even better opportunities and advantages than we have received at
our Alma Mater, in order that they also may have a feeling of preparedness for
the time when they shall enter into full citizenship in our great nation.
lo 'l' H li S A S S A M ON
.Xlthough we are far removed from the battlefronts, the ideals that many of our
classmates are even now fighting for. and that many more of us will soon be fight-
ing for, offer an inspiration for all to keep in mind during their daily lives. Selhsh
interests. racial prejudices and other weaknesses in American life must be studied
with open, clear and intelligent minds in order that they may be removed, and our
Democracy may better approach a state of true Democratic idealism. This can
be greatly aided by our educational system and may well serve as a world-wide
example. As students of Natick High, we have learned to recognize that many
of these prejudices are ill-founded, and the fact that people must not be judged
as a group race or nation, but only as individuals.
ln America it has long been realized that the public schools are the founda-
tion of our country's greatness and the cradle of our intellectual freedom. Perhaps
we have not been duly appreciative of our intellectual liberties, but certainly we
shall realize in later life the importance that they have had in building character
and in teaching us the importance of our citizenship.
In the post-war world there will be numerous changes in our economic and
social lives. Along with these we shall undoubtedly have changes in our educational
system. As informed and intelligent citizens it will be our duty to insure better
educational facilities for our country and for the whole world, for it is said educa-
tion is the most powerful single weapon against greed, crime, hate and prejudice,
which are the prime factors causing such upheaval and chaos as we are now expe-
riencing in this world.
It has been the tendency in more recent years to overemphasize scientific
study, but in the future we must also recognize cultural values. It has been said
that unless professional accomplishment is a natural product of the people's cul-
ture it inevitably becomes a lifeless academism. And academism is bad regardless
of whether it is labeled "classicism" or "modernism" Here again, knowledge
proves itself one of the greatest elements in life which lead to the highest success.
Finally. in farewell to our Alma Mater, we earnestly express our deep appre-
ciation and sincere gratitude to the townspeople, schoolboard, superintendent, prin-
cipals, and faculty of the Natick Public Schools with whom we have come in contact
for their patient understanding, kindly cooperation and invaluable guidance during
these, the formative years of our lives.
And though deriving great joy from the fact that this is the commencement
of a new phase in our lives, it is also with a feeling of deep regret that we bid
a fond farewell to those honored and respected perceptors who have labored so
nobly to guide our lives during these years.
THE SASSAMON 17
THE AMERICAN CRISIS
WHEN the twentieth century dawned on America, an entirely new era was
American industrial life was revolutionized. The common worker, instead of
having the satisfaction of completing a product, now made only a cog or a screw
for the new machines. Mass production and big business moved in, crushing the
small private enterprise worth monopolistic advantages. The policy of Ulaissez faire"
which had proved adequate for the nineteenth century now meant capitalistic ex-
ploitation of labor instead of individual freedom. Labor organized and fiery leaders
fought to protect the working man. The consumer protested against the high prices
caused by monopolies. Urged by incessant pressure groups, our government sought
to solve the new economic problems confronting it. Government regulation of
industry was increasingly extended and a policy of protection brought the highest
tariffs in American history. In retaliation, the other countries of the world adopted
a similar policy, and the result was the worst and most wide-spread depression
the world had ever known. Since the depression a more lenient policy of trade
reciprocity has been established, coupled with greater government control of in-
dustry. Yet, numerous difficulties have continued to rise. Some factions argue that
the solution of this problem lies in return to the outmoded policy of "laissez faire,"
and high protective tariffs. Others contend that greater government control is
needed or that tariff should be levied for revenue purposes only. It is, therefore,
evident that although over forty years have passed in this new century, American
democracy has not adjusted itself sufficiently to the changes wrought by the In-
Twentieth century Americans are living in a world which the airplane and
radio have made profoundly smaller than the thirteen American colonies at the
time of the Articles of Confederation. Yet, many continue to think of Europe
and Asia in terms of remoteness. Yet, throughout the 20's and even to-day when
a bomber can cross the Atlantic in eight hours, statesmen cherished and continue
to cherish a policy of isolationism which was possible in the nineteenth century
when the two oceans were ramparts of protection. Americans have not yet decided
how democracy is to be adjusted to this new world of nearness.
Since the industrial revolution America has been rising steadily in power.
American resources are to-day the most extensive in the world and American
production is leading the world. Although, after the first World War, United States
emerged as a creditor nation, many Americans failed to realize this fact and
a policy appropriate only for a debtor nation was pursued. The wealth of the
world was centered in America. Yet she called for payment in cash of the war
debts owed her by the other countries. There is an old proverb, familiar to most
American, which states that "you can't eat your cake and have it too." Yet this
is what America proceeded to do. Had Americans accepted payment of debts in
goods and in services, as befitted a creditor nation, the benefits would have been
18 THE SASSAMON
twofold. ln the tirst place, a greater amount would have been repaid, for when
cash was demanded it was inevitable that the debtor countries could soon be forced
to default in payment. Secondly, American business could have been stimulated by
the new markets created by the increased purchasing power in the debtor nations.
This is only one instance, but a review of American policy will show that we
consistently have failed to adopt the policy requisite for the most powerful nation
The varied and fruitless efforts of the entire world to solve twentieth century
problems have culminated in the most extensive and devastating war mankind has
ever known. Our fighting soldiers, spread over the entire globe, are making the
greatest possible sacrifice to crush the forces which have risen to oppose democracy.
And yet, with the cessation of hostilities, an even greater battle will remain to
he won. For at the close of the war democracy will be at a crisis. We must prove
that the democracy for which many of our men have given their lives is truly
the best way of life. We must prove that democracy is not an outmoded form
but that it is elastic, and that it can meet twentieth century needs more efficiently
than can any other way of life.
The very fact that we as Americans are now engaged in world conflict is suffi-
cient proof that the interests of Americans cannot be separated from the interests
of the rest of the world. We shall find that the only way to secure a lasting solu-
tion to the problems confronting .American democracy will be to solve also these
problems for the other nations of the world. The democracies established in Europe
after the last world war met with these problems much more forcibly than did
America or England for their resources and standards were much lower. When it
was realized that these Democracies could not cope with twentieth century life
and provide an adequate standard of living the people of these countries sought
a "new" system. Man will always sell his birthright for a mess of pottage when
he is faced with starvation. If America had aided those democracies and through
trade had prevented that starvation the dictators who threaten America to-day
might never have arisen.
We have just seen how poor economic conditions in a foreign country can
lead to war. Moreover, the economic interdependence of the entire world has been
proved. One of Americas major industries the automobile industry, is dependent
upon imported rubber. Thus it is to our interest to promote world trade and the
economic betterment of the world. Yet, to-day many .Americans will shudder when
it is suggested that our lowered war-time standard of living be continued for a
few years in order to establish the devastated and backward countries of the
world. in order to prevent the arising in the future of the opposing forces which
we fight to-day. These Americans have been willing to diminish greatly their living
standards when war threatened. But they fail to realize that they may be directly
responsible for more and even greater bloodshed if, after the threat of war fades.
they return to the processes which led to the present confiict.
If a sense of moral responsibility does not inspire the aiding and advantagement
of other peoples. a true vision of American self interest should. We have seen how
American business could have benefited from a revised debt payment policy
after the last war. It has been proved repeatedly that the highest standards of
living have always been attained when world trade was at a maximum. For
THE SASSAMON 19
as each backward country advances, increased purchasing power means an increased
market for American business. Will Americans deny the records and refuse to
learn from past failure in order to bask in prosperity for a few short years? Such
a policy would sooner or later result in a standstill or retrogression of civilization.
This is a new and entirely different era. Twentieth century maladies will not
be cured with nineteenth century remedies. .After the last war although political
units were to a great extent revised in social and in economic fields the "status
quo" was largely presented. It should have been evident that return to 'fthings as
they were" would inevitably lead to a conflict for these same conditions had
already terminated in a world war. The strength of the American system and
democracy is about to be tested. Can they solve the problems of the twentieth
century? I believe that through world Cooperation they can.
There is a well known law of nature which governs all science and which
is applicable to life. That law is a statement of the fact that output equals
input that no more can be attained from any project than that which is put into
it. In a democracy for each privilege acquired there is a corresponding responsibility.
To-day when democracy is at a crisis these responsibilities are greater than ever
before. American citizens are responsible for leadership, for a democracy depends
upon its leader. Each citizen is responsible for participation in government and
must have an unprejudiced interest in public welfare. These problems of the
twentieth century are his problems. He must aid in solving them.
The Youth of today is the builder of tomorrow. If youth accepts the respon-
sibilities of democracy then and only then will the American way of life be pre-

The class of 1944 may well be proud of the part played by its boys in the
success of the Natick High football team the past year.
The season opened with a victory by the slimmest margin over Marlboro
and ended with a decision 14-0 win over highly favored Framingham. Only one
black mark marred the record of the Red and Blue and that was a 14-19 reverse
suffered at the hands of Norwood. Milford and Natick tied earlier in the year and
that tie also served to end the Midland League season in a deadlock between
the two teams.
Outstanding stars of the team from the class of '44 were Captain "Artie" Fair.
"Ed" Clasby, the "than-whomern of passers, "Ken" Channell who left us early
to play for Uncle Sam, "Skippy" Howard, "Bullet" Byrne, Frank Wigglesworth,
"Barney" Barnacle. "junie" McGrath. "johnny" Rego, Walter White, "Dave"
Sanborn, Paul Shakespeare, "Mike" Solari, "Dugout" Parker, "Bob" Mahoney,
Gerry Deveraux, Roger Casavant, Leonard Chiacchia, and Ray Slamin, Manager.
To all these boys who performed so nobly for Natick High, the class of '44
and the coaches extend their heartfelt appreciation and wish them luck in the

Once again the bearers of the banner of
the red and blue proved that hockey has be-
come a major success as well as a major
sport at the Natick Senior High School.
For the third time in four years it was
their fate to finish in second place in the East-
ern Massachusetts Hockey League. Through-
out the entire season our boys richly deserved
the tribute of the sports writers and fans as
the "most aggressive schoolboy six." It was
unfortunate that this year's club was op-
posed by the best team that the league has
seen since its organization some nine years
ago. However the Natick ice experts made
a real contest for Hudson's veteran team up
to the last week of play.
As we say farewell to this fine group oi
boys we know that the commendable record
that they have carved on all hockey enthu-
siasts memories will be long lasting. May
they succeed in their future life as they have
on the field of play.
It is with great hopes that Natick High
can send into this war torn world such fine
senior hockey men as. Captain Eddie Clasby,
the town of champions own Mr. Hockey, who
was not only the leaguc-'s leading scorer but
was also selected on the New England All
Star Team: Ralph Howard the little boy with
the courage and speed and determination of
the greatest and the noblest: Roger Casavant
whose record of tive shutouts rates him as
one of Natick's best goalies in the history
of local hockeyg Fain and Marshall whose
play on defense was always dependable and
intelligent: and last but not least Ray Slamin
whose great love for the game does not ex-
ceed his cleverness near the boards and his
inimitable tricky shot.

1 9-I-I SASSAMON BOARD
A fourth place rating was awarded to
the 1944 SAF-SAMUN by the Columbia Scho-
lastic Press Asoociation. Yiewing the number
of difficulties encountered in publication this
year, our coveted rating means more than
it has in other years when the paper was
published under standard conditions.
It has been the policy of the Swssixxiox
staff this year to make the paper truly "Of
the Students. by the Students. for the Stu-
dents." Contributions have been received
from a large number of persons. After the
publication of the fourth issue. the S.xss,xMoN
Board was enlarged with fourteen homeroom
reporters. Under this system of news report-
ing each person in the school has representa-
tion for the reporters are responsible for all
news concerning persons in their homerooms.
Reporters contributions appeared under the
heading "Homeroom Highlights."
At the beginning of the year a series of
exceptionally well-supported Sass.-xxiox Dances
were held in the high school auditorium.
On April Sth, six delegates from Natick
High attended the Eastern Massachusetts
Scholastic Press Association Conference at
The "enlivened" appearance in the set-
up of the S.xss.1.ix1oN met with the approval
of the student body.
Backed up by the reporters and assist-
ants the S.xss.xMoN personnel includes:
