We, the Class of 1946, lovingly dedicate this, our Senior
Yearbook, to Mr. Harold C. Sears. Mr. Sears became Head
of the Commercial Department in September, 1927. In 1955
he was elected sub-master and in 1945 acting principal, a
position which he held until his retirement in 1945.
A kind, sympathetic and understanding friend, we miss
his cheerful smile and friendly advice.
we hope he will have many happy years in his retire-

Parents, Teachers and Friends:

We are gathered here tonight for the last time as a class. Soon we shall take
various paths along life's highway.
XYe feel that we have been very fortunate to have enjoyed the privileges of this
great democracy and we pledge ourselves to keep America truly "the land of the
free and the hotne of the brave."
A glorious heritage is ours,

Make strong our hands, G

"THAT WE SHALL REMEMBER"
Twenty-tive years ago today, anofh class, graduating from Natick Hi
School, faced a great many problems not unlike those which we, the class of 19
face today. They were also at the beginnitfg of a postwar era. They too were
puzzled and skeptical about our foreign policy, about the coal situation, the world
court, prevention of war, and the League of Nations. And somehow during the
few years that followed, people lost interest in these things.. They forgot what war
was like, they forgot what the rest of the world was doing. Consequently, when
the shadow of the aggressor began advancing across Eastern Europe and in the
Orient, the League of Nations was powerless to arrest their progress. England,
France and the other nations refused to impose economic sanctions as long as the
United States was not committed to such action, for they feared that we would take
advantage of the situation to increase our own commerce. Who can say that our
participation in the League would have prevented war 5 but there are those who say
that our lack of interest precipitated the war. ,4
Today, as we go forward, may we remember what.has h ne and what is
more important, why it happened. Then let tts resolve'to do s g about it.
Let us work toward unity with the nations of the world.
The unify of which we speak is international cooperation through organization
-the main purpose of the lfnited Nations. lt seems, then, only logical that this
organization be encouraged as the medium for attaining world harmony. Not only
should the work of the Lfnited Nations be encouraged, but it must be given whole-
hearted, active support by every nation to prevent the degradation of humanity.
The lfnited Nations did not develop suddenly. The desire for a new inter-
national system was mentioned as early as the Atlantic Charter and then the idea
began to mature. The title "l.,'nited Nations' s first officially used in January
THE SASSAMON 7
1941 when forty-eight nations' united to win the war. At subsequent international
conferences more and more was said about uniting for a permanent peace. Finally,
in the summer of 1944, forty delegates from Great Britain, China, Russia, and the
United States convened at Dumbarton Oaks to discuss the desire for a new inter-
national peace system, and to compose a document, which was later known as the
"Dumbarton Oaks Proposals."
Finally, in April 1945, little over a year ago, "The United Nations Conference
on International Organization" opened in San Francisco. The delegates from
forty-eight nations, with the "Proposals" as their guide, began work on the United
Nations Charter which blueprinted the main governing bodies. There were more
than a few differences among the many representatives, but there was no bitterness.
Concessions were made by both the large and the small nations, many disputes were
settled by compromise. At last, two months later, the completed document was
signed by fifty-one nations. The world had made another advance toward peace.
Since then, there have been twoiiineetings of the United Nations: the prepara-
tory meeting in London, and the first session at the Qgporary headquarters at New
York. Already a great many difficulties have arisen, Izhid we have found several
imperfections in the Charter. Yet when the Constitution ofgthe United States was
completed in 1776, one of the most eminent of its '-fotmdiiig fathers," Benjamin
Franklin, saw its many flaws and he uttered this comment, "l confess that there are
several parts of this Constitution which I do not approve, butii am not sure that I
shall never approve them .... Thus, I consent, Sir, to this Constitution, because
I expect no better, and because l am not sure that it is not the best." That same
document is the living basis of our democracy today.
Therefore we must not be discouraged! The United Nations already has two
great advantages over the League in thatlit has the power to use force against an
aggressor, and that the United States is a charter member, pledging itself to support
and maintain an active interest in the orgainizationqt has laid the groundwork for
a practical and workable permanent peace. XVhat the final result will be-whether
the United Nations will work or not depends on us. No official delegate can make
the Organization work unless the people he represents are convinced that it is the
only way to insure lasting peace and that they must work for peace. Then, and
only then, will the United Nations succeed. .

Never before in the history of the World has there been a generation charged
with so great a responsibility as the one borne by our generation. lVith us. and
especially with the youth of America, lies the task of keeping alive in the minds of
the peoples of the world the stark tragedy of war and the necessity of a lasting
Ours is the task of seeing that the world never forgets the wasted youth, the
vast destruction of property, and the great corruption of morals that is synonymous
with war, -

Education is the first essential in fulfilling this responsibility, for only through
universal education can the world hope to gain international understanding and
cooperation. Education prevents the blind exercise of political power which was a
primary factor in the I-litler campaign. lt offers the individual an opportunity to
find out for himself, to examine both sides of a question intelligently, to form his
own opinions on an issue, and to make his views felt through his political repre-
llere, then, is another task for .-Xmericau youth--the creation of an educated
world. llow can we attempt to solve such an overwhelming problem? There are
many ways in which we can help.
First and foremost, we must strive to eliminate doctrines of suppression and
censorship from the educational systems of the world. NYe must endeavor to form
an army of well-informed world citizens whose main weapon of defense will be the
fact that they know what is going on. These individuals will familiarize themselves
with public affairs so that they may work for the good of the majority at all times.
We must endeavor to have the knowledge of the common individual approximate
the knowledge of his leaders so that he may understand the problems of society.
The world must be brought to realize the importance of the individual, for the
common man is a source of unlimited power, and he must be prepared to use this
power intelligently. The only way to prepare him is to afford him the opportunity
to study, to read, and to counsel with others on matters of public policy, to hear all
points of view, and to examine and discuss every issue.
Lastly, we must insure freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from
want, and freedom from fear for the whole world. If we strive to achieve these
noble objectives, we shall truly attain greatness, for
NVHAT IS OUR GREATNESS?

' CLASS HISTORY
In September, 1943 we, the class of 1046, entered Natick High School. This
was a great event for all of us and we looked forward to the future with great
hopes. ln the tirst few weeks we could easily be distinguished from the upper class-
tnen as we eagerly looked for our classrooms trying to pretend that we knew where
we were going.
'l'here were one hundred and sixty boys and girls from the Coolidge junior
High School and Saint l'atrick's School at our brst assembly. Mr. Sears, our act-
ing principal, welcomed Us and told us about the routine and traditions of Natick
Class tleetions were held in October and our ofticers for the year were John
lilriseoll, Larry llevercaux, 'loan llrenneman and Robert Howatt and then in short
order. we had sophomore representatives on the Student Council, junior Red Cross,
Yarsity teams, filee Clubs and Orchestra. Because of the war there was little
opportunity for us to make any highlights so we applied ourselves in our respective
classes. became acquainted with the faculty and the school routine, and looked for-
ward with mnch anticipation to our junior year.
As juniors we were all eager to make it a successful and memorable year. VVe
had elections in Noyemberi-lolm Driscoll was elected president, Larry Devereaux,
vice-president, Yioletta Tutuny, secretary, and Edward Garvin, treasurer.
Hur interest in war work was great. XVe gave our best efforts and devoted
much time to the -Iunior Red Cross, and The Camp and Hospital Council Activ-
itiesg we continued to buy XYar Stamps and to plan programs for the patients at
cushing tleneral Hospital. Of course, with all our seriousness, we did not forget
our junior Prom. lt was an evening of great joy and will ever be a cherished
memory for many of us. . -
In the spring Donald llalrymple, Richard Balcom and James Haddad were
selected to represent Natick at Hoy-s' State. but because of transportation difficulties
iiriys' State was cancelled. Rita lJeAngelis, however, did represent Natick at Girls'
THE SASSAMON 11
In September 1945 we again returned to Natick High School-this time as
dignified and serious seniors. The war was over. Germany had surrendered to the
Allies in May, and in August Japan felt the might of the atomic bomb and it, too,
capitulated. XYe were relieved that the war was over-or rather that fighting had
stopped. lVe returned to our classes with the realization that our career at Natick
High School was coming to its conclusion and it seemed we were more aware of
our responsibilities as citizens and we had a new appreciation of what an education
The permanent ofhcers of our class were chosen in October. They are john
Driscoll, president, Richard Balcom, vice-president: Violetta Tutuny, secretary and
Edward Garvin, treasurer.
The following members of the class of '46 were the captains of our school
teams: Gene Arena and Vangie Sticka-Football, james Haddad-Basketballg
Edward Garvin and john Driscoll-Hockey, George Shaw and Larry Devereaux-
Baseball. All of the teams had successful seasons and although we missed champ-
ionship and title ratings in the past year, Natick High was honored to have eight
boys from its hockey team make the All Star Team of the Eastern Massachusetts
League. And too, once again, our football team defeated Framingham. The bas-
ketball team won fourteen of the sixteen games played.
Early in our senior year Mr. Sears retired because of ill health. Mr. Martin
was our acting principal until December when Mr. Maffeo was released from active
duty in the United States Navy to resume his position as principal.
Our Senior Play, "The Doctor Has a Daughter," directed by Mrs. Dekleritt
and Miss Donahoe, played two nights to a very enthusiastic audience. Alfred Bran-
agan and joan Parrinello were the soloists during intermission.
In March Rita DeAngelis represented Natick High School at the annual con-
vention of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Boston.
The National Honor Society held its induction ceremonies in May. Thirteen
members of our class are members in this society.
The Senior Reception, which is always the social highlight of commencement
week, will take place this Friday evening and on Monday, June 17, the graduation
exercises will be the last school activity for the Class of 1946. As we take our
places in the world we hope, as individuals, to add new pages to this history of our
class and we are ready to assume responsibility in solving those problems that mut
be faced if we are to have better community, national and international relation-

THE SASSAMON 15
Une cold, bleak morning as Professor Driz Dayton worked feverishly in his
mountain laboratory, he summoned his trustworthy assistant, Professor J ohri Col-
cord, and proposed the idea of reuniting the atom.
Needing government assistance they chartered a plane under the capable pilot-
age of Robert Proctor and flew immediately to Vilashington to seek permission of
the government to undertake such a tremendous task.
For landing instructions at VVashington airport they were greeted over the
radio by Charlie Hall who is well-known for his famous radio technique.
They are helped off the plane by their charming hostess, Barbara McNair, and
escorted out of the airport in the private car of Richard Robinson. Much to their
surprise, the scientists realize it is the same car which Richard possessed in high
school. As the car laboriously waded through the streets of W'ashington, the
screeching sound of a siren pierced their ears. Robinson, thinking he was pinched,
pulled to the side of the road. lt was the XVashington Fire Department with Varzgie'
Sticlea driving the chief's car. Tagging along behind in the world's most modern
fire engine we see Roy Falzcy and perched beside him holding on for dear life is
Let us leave the scientists for the moment and follow these speeding demons to
their warm reception. They are greeted at the door by a much-excited Violctta
Tutznzy, dean of "The Semper Paratae" school for secretaries, who has been vainly
trying to extinguish the contiagration. XYith her are her most cherished pupils,
Martha Driscoll, Mary Pizicfau, fcarz Maclltfaiu, and Tilly Mason. A shrill scream
echoes through the burning halls. One of our more unobtrusive firemen, Larry
Dcfvcrcazzx, with no regard for the safety of his own life, dashes into the blazing
inferno. Minutes later, staggering through the smouldering ruins, he carries in his
arms the unconscious figure of Ircnc Vcrgos.
At this moment a press car rushes to the scene. It is Rita Dcflizgclis, the
nation's number one acc reporter. XVith her we hnd the Bashing photographer,
Suddenly an ambulance swerves into the driveway and comes to a screeching
stop. Out steps Doctor Harry Trask and his driver Bcuny Driscoll. Hclcrz Dalzl-
grcn, Doctor Trask's most faithful nurse, follows the men to the now reviving
Hours later we find Jimmy O,Cd0lLllfll and Robcrt Slllll7.'Ul1 searching in the
smouldering ruins to determine the cause of this disaster. They have been sent over
by the District Attorney. Charlie' Barker.
We now look back upon the scientists whom we left so abruptly in the turmoil
of traffic. XVhat's this? The car won't start. Calling a mechanic to the scene, they
recognize their long lost friend, Donald F. Hoc-v who has been noted for his ability
to repair broken-down cars. -
As it would take hours for the car to be repaired, the men decided to take in a
lo THE SASSAMON
show. Cllancing across the street they saw a large, flashing sign. It read, "For
Relaxation, Come in and lfnjoy our Show." Taking advantage of this offer they
sauntcred across the street and bought two tickets from the charming ticket girl,
.'lntoini'Ih' llilnrrio. ln the lobby they meet their old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Wil-
Iilun llrarlford, Mr. Rirlmrfl .llorrilv and his sweet wife, the former Gloria Mills.
Leaving onr scientists comfortably seated in a front row, we now take you
backstage where we lind .lark Slieridan, our famous singing cowboy rehearsing,
tentatively admired hy Pliyllis .llorrix who is now a well-known dancer. just then
two pacing figures catch our eye. 'l'hey are the newly acquired owners of the
theater, .lanies .llorris and lfranris ,S'c'liat'one who are eagerly awaiting the arrival
of their star contortionist, Carl gllaltson, who immediately follows George Rogers,
famous for his tear-jerking self-composed ballads.
The tenseness is relieved as they gaze upon their four Flora-Dora-Dancing-
Girls, .flnna Varrirliione, Joann llrennenmn, Dina Bolzlriglzini and Dolores Casali
who are about to make their entrance on the stage with their version of an Egyptian
Quickly changing scenery between acts are Gene Arena and Donald Dupree.
During Irene Lange'z'in's comedy act a merry peal of laughter is heard through-
out the theater. It is Rachael Ifipolilo, and with her we find Clotilde Eusebi and
Ruth 1'.0l'll-Ill. They are obviously enjoying the show.
While the professors are deeply absorbed in the Egyptian Conga, let tis take
leave of them and stroll through the streets of this thriving metropolis.
What is this? Why, it is Nancy Cooper running the famous chain of Cooper's
drug stores. Behind the counter diligently filling a prescription for Richard Balcom
who is suffering from cerebritis, we find Ben Davis, world-renowned pharmacist.
Further on down the street there is a large crowd entering "Lorraine's Fashion
Shop" owned by Lorraine Paul. The clothes which were designed by the famous
designer, Theresa Tessier, are being modeled by that tall, blonde-Janet Wells.
Among the patrons we lind Tlzeresai Profefto, the heiress, Ruth Canning, the archi-
tect, and Grave Crisafulli, the well-known fashion critic.
In the midst of the shopping district we notice two large self-service chain
stores. The owners are ,loe l"it.:fialrirle and his immediate rival, .lanies Slainin. VVe
notice an express truck delivering merchandise to Slamin's store. Its driver is the
husky Roger Could. lle ,is assisted by the powerful frame of lrl'illia,in Hunter.

PARDON US Y XYe just had a collision with the former Hope Styles and her
little tribe of dark-haired mechanics. Hope tells us that .llartlza Swanson is now
an accomplished commercial artist for one of America's most eminent magazines.
She also mentions that .lane ll'lialen is compiling a series of articles with her
assistant journalist, Rnflz l'er1ne, on her recent trip to the moon as a foreign

greeted by his receptionist, Barbara Leafvitt who, in turn, refers them to the secre-
tary, Eva Montagna who looks to see if Mr. Howatt has time to see them. Mr.
Howatt, as you all know, is a prominent, government inspector of advancements of
the atomic bomb. His assistant, Kieran Nolan, enters and they discuss the neces-
sary business that involves the experiment.
Due to the shortage of living quarters, it was necessary to call the assistance of
Senator Richard Connell to give his personal recommendation for rooms for the
night. They were greeted at the door of the Erickson Chateau by Michael Dunn,
doorman, who is famous for his professional wrestling ability in his spare time.
The clerk at the desk, ll'alter Brorun, greeted his guests in a highly educated man-
ner. After signing the book, they were shown to their rooms by the assistant man-
ager, Costa Bitsoli. Desiring refreslnnents, they called room service and asked for
a pitcher of water. It was brought to them by the charming waitress, Vita Arrnata.
After a short rest they are cordially invited by the manager, Carl Erickson, to be his
personal guests for dinner. During the drop of 76 floors per second they notice
the elevator boy to be none other than Karl Kreshpane.
As they enter the main dining room, they hear the melodious strains of orches-
tra leader and drummer boy, George Clzmzette and his Melodiers. Among the
orchestra players we find the well-known saxophone player, Helen Condon ,' flutist,
Betty-Jane ll"c'blv,' violinist, Arlene Boswell: trumpeter, Toni lllonaco, and puffing
away at the tuba we find Kenneth Lisconzoe. Playing the piano in his usual incom:
parable manner is Kenny Harlhell. Their accompanying soloist is Joyce Murphy.
She glances at a nearby table and finds Tonnny Lowry seated with Dorothy Olson,
and Gordon Clzannell with Mary Neo, These men have been hired by these darling
damsels as their personal escorts.
The scientists are shown to their table by head waiter, Danny McNeil and told
that their meal is to be especially prepared by Lucille Belnziore.
Seen at the next table is Barbara Beswick serving the two celebrated occupa-
tional-therapists, Connie Barr and Mary Elrlridge. Dining with them is the famous
germologist, Barbara Ranzsdell. Glancing further around the room their eyes fall
upon Jeanne Park, the lirst lady of the stage who is at the present moment enjoying
her favorite meal of mignon. VVith her are the famous concert singers, loan
Parrincllo and Alfred Branagan. Serving them is the dainty and petite Elisabeth
After spending an enjoyable evening with their former schoolmates they re-
tired to a well-earned rest.
Early the next morning they are driven to the hospital to hire a special doctor
to work with them as protection in case of accidents while working on the atom.
There they are met at the door by .llary Stanznli, medical secretary. Passing fur-
ther down the corridor they meet lllarjorio Clollvnrn and .loan Lyons who are grad-
uated nurses. ln the main otsrice they are greeted by Doctor Frtznris Dll'mt',X',S
receptionist, Rita Farley.
After a short wait in Doctor Dutiicys office, the doctor arrives and apologizes
for his delay. In his pleasing manner he narrates the specific details of the unfor-
tunate accident. Much to our surprise the cause of the fire was the dreadful spon-

The scientists then offered to him the job of being their personal doctor. Being

Lightning is tlashing a hrilliant design in the sky, while the worst storm of the
t'lQ.XSlI Y 'l'he fatal explosion has occurred. That familiar plume of smoke
pushes its way up through the mist. There is a dull silence. As the smoke slowly
dintinisltes, :t terrible sight is in view.
.Xgain time slips hy. Scene, the Town llall of Natick. The presiding speaker
is John llrllonnld. They are discussing the appropriation for money to build a new
laboratory tor experiments on the atom. As usual it is taking a lot of fight to get
the money from the town. If this plan is promoted, David Williams will be chosen

well kniown for her superb speeches on such occasions.
Seated directly opposite her deeply absorbed in the immediate discussion is
.llury lr'nlwrI.v who is a noted bookkeeper in the state department.

In the hack ol the hall we tind Eleanor Ainsworth, Lucy Grupposo and Mar-
gmcritv llalronz. 'l'hey are discussing the latest athletic meet in which Kay Gerrlty
and lxut' .lIILlltA'll71l' participated. '
.Ns the clock spins to the very late hours in the evening, we see two people rise
and leave. They are Florine. Bird and Fclicifa Brovclli. As they leave they meet
two ot' their old classmates, .llary Lanrini and June MacKinnon, and offer them a
ride home as the Natick streets are as dark as they were Fifteen years ago. On the
way home from the meeting, they reminisce about their high-school days. In the
course of the conversation, they learn that Pat Donahue has received a master's
degree-3 Ifilie .llozzron and Jean Merrigaaz have opened an exclusive restaurant
where the Washington Cafe used to be. Deciding to stop there for a bite to eat,
they park their car in a modernized motor mart run by a group of female mechan-
ics, Jani' l.fnze, Pat Dzifzizs, and Theresa Ilortilcy, under the capable supervision of
l."I'l'tl1.lIt' .Sul-litlyf who owns a chain of these marts throughout the Country.

THE SASSAMON 19
Early the next morning there is a great commotion as everyone is trying to
meet the 8 D8 train. Among the milling crowd we find Shirley Hardy who is going
in to rehearse for a future symphonic concert. Standing nearby are three business-
like young ladies. They are Mary Miscia, Peggy Ronan. and Evelyn Slarnin who
are on their way to work at the "Burpsie Booman bottling company. As the train
pulls out there is a shrill cry of, "VVait for us"l Gasping for breath, Jackie Lock-
hart and Dotiic Jackson make a Hying leap for the train. The conductor, Mitch
Hoznsie warns them to be on time hereafter. As the conductor passes through the
train to collect his fares he meets his old friends Dotty Lynch and Marion Hanna
who are now famed aerialists in Doroihy Johnsons circus. In this travelling show
the trick riders, Jarkic Logan and Fran McCann are also taking part. As the train
comes to a screeching stop, George Lane shuts off the movie projector and with a
sigh of relief utters the ever-popular phrase, "Everybody wants to get into the act."

INTO THIS WORLD
Many, many years from now,
XVe'll look back upon this day.
And think of all the joys we knew,
That will seem so far away.
lVhere shall we go, what shall we do?
lVe've been together for so long.
Into this world, now we must go..
May our wildest dreams come true.
But even if they don't. have faith,
For Cod will see us through.

Interest in selifmlliriy hockey attained its highest grnwtli in Natick this year.
Countless reasrins have heen advanced fer the current popularity of the game
but the indomitable spirit nf this year's red and hlue sextet is undmulimtedly the
answer tri the inimitahle enthusiasm that was aruused.
After winning the clianuiimisliip last year, few expected the local ice experts
to go very far in the ehainpifwnsliip matches in Vlfi. However, the hustling team
had other designs with the result that Natick lead the league tluwuiglicuit the season
and it was unfortunate that a tie in the last game dashed the red and hlue's hopes
of repeating its titular liniinrs. V
Two league l'CCUT4lb were estalmlishefl hy the lncal six lliis year that will very
likely stand fnr many years tw crime. f lnly live gwals were senreil against nur lwys
and netman, l,arry lleyereaux, turned in six shutwuts in the ten games played.
Such defensive ahility is nut only a trihute tw the ahility uf the three seniurs on
defense hut tn the hnys on the ffvrwarrl line as well whnse tireless checking was the
feature uf the leagues cfwinpetitinn.
The senior class has reasfwn tn he lmmil nf its cnntriluitimi tw the hwckey team
as must nf these hwys have heen memliers nf the squad fur three years and during
that time haye lmnwefl fvnly live times against fast c'niinic'titi4rii.

showing by leading the liar State League with O wins and 3 losses, which included
wins over Framinghain, Norwood and Needham twice, and ll'alpole. Dedham and
llelleslev once. lle lost once to lYellesley, Dedham and llalpole.
llve started the season poorly hy dropping games to llellesley and Xlarlhoro,
but after Lester Leland and Magnus Nord got the range with james Franciose and
Gene Arena supplying the power we were a match for anyone. ln our first win-
ning game Lester Leland established a strikeout record that will survive for many
a game by striking out twenty-one of the opposition.
Un first we had George Shaw who did a fine job after Richard Checani discon-
tinued because of illness. Our second hast- combination was one of beauty with
Sticka at second and -lohn Driscoll at shortstop. Over on third Luigi Scianna held
forth for first of the season until henched by a finger injuryg from there on lidward
Garvin took up the task and did a commendable job. This infield completed 14
double plays in all. fit-ne Arena, taking over after the first four games, did a hang-
np job catching Lester Leland and Magnus Nords pitching. The outfield consist-
ing of blames liranciose, Lawrence llevereaux and Karl Kreshpane who contributed
long runs and good catches on many occasions, and hit in many needed runs.
:Xs a whole we had a strong organization, no little part of which was played by
our very dependable managers, George Rogers and John Colcord.
