ADDRESS OF WELCOME---CLASS DAY
Un behalf ot' the Class of lf?-17 it is ati honor and a pleasure for me to wel-
eonie you to our Class llay lfxercises. XYe are very grateful to you, our parents,
our teachers, and our friends who have made this day possible. ln this post-war
world we appreciate fully the educational advantages and the opixrrtnnities which
you have provided for us.
Xte do not know what the years ahead hold in store for us, but we do know
that our part in solving our future problems will be a credit to you, to our school,
and to our community.
And so on this sixth day of hlune, 1047, l again welcome you to our Class Day
Iixerciseswa step in our youthful progress toward the attainment of our ambitions.
af f "f
During the past three years at Natick High, we of the Class of 1947 have
been making history. 'l'wo records of this history have been kept, one is the
scholastic record, the daily measure of our achievements, our mental growth, our
knowledge, the other is the human record, the rambling account of our social life,
our dreams, our successes and our failures. The first, carefully tiled away in the
principal's oflice, leads to Monday night, to graduation and to our diplomas. Gf
that we shall not speak. 'l'he second, just as carefully kept in our memories and
hearts, leads to this morning, our Class llay. lt is this record that I wish to recall.
'l'he Fall of ll?-1-l found about one hundred fifty bewildered boys and girls
entering the high school, curious and embarrassed, but very enthusiastic about their
new adventure in education.
At our tirst assembly we were most cordially welcomed by Mr. Sears, acting
principal, in the absence of Klr. Nlalfeo who was serving Uncle Sam. Mr. Sears'
understanding, gracious manner and kind remarks put ns at ease and we were soon
made In feel that we belonged. flur acquaintance with Mr. Sears, however, was
-hortflired for small he chose to retire. Xlr. Martin now succeeded Mr. Sears.
NNW to organize the sophomore class! 'llhe election results on November
eighth showed Herald 'l'homas, president: .Xrthur Casavant, vice-presidentg Sheila
llrennan, secretary, and 'loan Hell, treasurer. Representatives of our class were
active on the various committees and in school activities such as: junior Red
Cross. S xssuiox Board, Varsity teams, Glee Club, Orchestra, and Student Coun-
cil. 'I'he Yarsity football and basketball teams found it necessary to dip into the
sophomore class to obtain the talents of ".lunie" liranciose and "Billy" Carr.
'I'his year we telt a great loss, 1 me of our classmates, Roger Russell, who had
resided in Natick only a short time, suffered a fatal accident. Miss Randall, our
lnnehroom dietitian, retired to 'enjoy a bit of leisure after many years of faithful
.Xfter our summer vacation in l'l-15, we returned to school to start our Junior
year. We were full of ambition and hopeful of starting a year of greater accom-
llishnient in scholastic, athletic, and social activities. Mr. Maffeo had returned
THE SASSAMON 7
from the service and resumed the position of Principal. In November we elected
class officers, choosing Robert Fair, presidentg Arthur Casavant, vice-president:
Beverly Wlard, secretaryg and Robert Prescott, treasurer. "Billy" Carr and
"fume" Franciose were elected co-captains of the football team for the coming
year. The basketball team was to be captained by "Chuck" Checani. Tommy
Quirk, Bobby Fair, and Buddy Potter distinguished themselves on the hockey team.
Fair was later elected captain. The baseball team won the coveted Hay State
League Championship. Lester Leland was elected captain for baseball.
Helen McGrath was sent to Girl's State in Bridgewater to represent the girls
of Natick High School. Robert Prescott represented the boys at Amherst. liotli
returned With glowing accounts of their experiences. Surely this is a wonderful
lesson in government and good citizenship, provided so generously by the American
Legion and its auxiliary.
Helen McGrath, Ruth Powers, George Buckley, and Gerald Thomas were
elected to the Honor Society. This was an outstanding accomplisliment for juniors.
In May we enjoyed our .lunior Prom, our social highlight for the year. This
year we mourned the loss of "Sonny" Goodall, who was fatally injured in an acci-
dent. XVe all missed his sunny disposition and pleasing personality.
September 1946 finally found us seniors. Our first activity was choosing our
permanent ofhcers. 'We elected Robert liair, presidentg Arthur Casavant, vice-
presidentg Helen McGrath, secretary, and Robert Prescott, treasurer. In Febru-
ary Ruth Powers was chosen by her classmates as the flood Citizen to represent
Natick High School at the D.A.R. Pilgrimage held in Boston in March.
Our football team under the direction of Mr. Plausse had the power this year,
also,.to defeat Framingham. The hockey team under the supervision of Coach
Carroll had four members chosen for the Eastern lXlassachusetts All Star Team.
They were Robert Fair, Tommy Quirk, Edward Clay, and Arthur Potter.
The National Honor Society induction was held- in May. At this time eight
more members were inducted and twelve of our classmates will receive their pins
today. "january Thaw," our senior play, was presented to a most appreciative
audience on April tenth and eleventh. The cast under the guidance of Mrs. Helen
Delileritt did a splendid job. The school orchestra under Mr. Mayberger's direc-
tion, with Hilda Banks and lired Dutton as soloists, presented the musical selections
during the intermission. The climax of our social life comes tomorrow night in
the Coolidge Junior High Gym when our Senior Reception will surpass all other
school functions in gayety and brilliance.
lt is with the deepest regret that we sever these close associations with our
classmates. Wle feel deeply grateful for the kind and thoughtful guidance of our
faculty and especially to our class advisers, bliss XYildbur and Mr. Carey, who have
so patiently and expertly led us to the successful conclusion of our days at Natick
High School. We shall always cherish these years.
BEVERLY JEAN XVARD.

IU THE SASSAMON
llere it is lllofl It doesn't seem possible that we were graduated from dear
old Natick lligh approximately twenty years ago. liame and fortune had come
to many of Its and three of us, who had been friends for many years, plaimed a
trip through the fortyfeight states. Nye hoped to meet some of our former class-
mates, who through the years had become scattered over the face of the globe.
Hur Iirst renewed friendship came when we found that 'Iohn lXlilley was to
pilot the plane we had chartered for the trip. .lean lllichaud was to be the hostess
and also act as a companion to ns.
Um' first. stop was Washington. Xtalking through the streets of our stately
capitol we noticed a large crowd in front of an auditorium. Curiosity getting the
better of us, we decided to investigate. :X tall, distinguished-looking gentleman
came dashing ollt of the building and hopped into a Stanley Steamer. lt was none
other than our old schoolmate and friend, Tout .l1tlflUl1t',V, who had made a place
for himself in the political world. lie claimed the Stanley Steamer reminded hini
of the "old tlllY5.H
hltisllitlg' our way through the crowd once more, we headed toward the main
tliorouglit'are where we were niet with a glare of neon lights. 'l'he BUUU proved
the most crowded, so we chose that. 'l'he star of the show was none other than
fran: lfell. 'I'he show was a revival of "Grapes of Wrath" and the cast included
l4t1rlri11'ti .llc.X't1Ily and Tonniiy t'l1ri.vt1'c who had just arrived from California for
a one-night stand. Sitting near us, and evidently enjoying the show immensely,
were lltzrluirii l'ie1'ce and lfltiim' .S't'l1e11fcle, who were secretaries at the Federal
lhireau of Investigation. l,et us leave the show for a moment and call backstage.
'l'here we find "C'l1m'L"' flfIt't'llIlf, producer of the show, giving orders to Paul
l-fiirnirle, who is now stage manager. lfntering the stars' dressing room, we find
.lliirgtirel .llomiz and .blllfliftl lfrenutzii. Sheila is dress designer and Margaret her
secretary. 'l'hey certainly stuck by their old school chmn, -Ioan. Xvhat a stroke of
luck to hnd so many friends in one placel
lflorida was to be our next stop. We had received an invitation from Roger
inzfl lrtnnly' 'l'!1or.vci1 to view their beach extravaganza, "The Gala Hathing Beauty
Contest." 'l'he beach was crowded with people lolliiig about basking in the sun,
and others more ambitions dashing in and out of the refreshing surf. Suddenly a
voice lumotlleil iillf. 'Tonic on, folks, get 'em while they're hot." XX'ho was it but
lloiiiilff .lltll'lI, the "llot llog King," having a little fun reminiscing. lle was doing
this lo the raucous laughter of his friend and confidant, .Yofcell ,,llllt'A', who is at
present "knocking them dead" at the St. l'ctersbiirgh llotel.
'l'he contest was ready to begin, and the beach beauties were capably arranging
tlieniselves to look their best. :X few that we saw at that time were llelcn .lli'CIri1ll1,
.lltiry lflillllffll, lift' lllirrl, firm' .llnslier and l'ftIl'f7iII'tl Regtiu. Tnniiny 'fofliuiii and
l't'rcr Mtorell, lifegiiards at the beach, were spending much time admiring them.
.X fanfare, then .fuels llre-ze started introducing a bevy of beauties who paraded
before us. Xte recognized four, .lean ,llifrl1ell, tfminie O'lv0in'ke, Juan IVlzalen
and . Inn frfflilxoii.

us to our rooms which had been beautifully decorated by C'l1111'lcs S'It't't'lIl',X', who had
attained world-wide fame.
We were just changing our clothes when a loud noise startled us. Looking
out the window, we saw what we supposed were desperadoes come dashing out of
a small barroom across the street, leap on their horses and gallop into the deepening

captained the boat. He said that the number of people from Natick, whom he had
run across was amazing, Only last week, Gerry Tlionnis, governor of Massachu-
setts, and his competent secretary, Hiirluiru Hrv.s'xc, had visited him.
The boardwalk was as crowded as we had suspected it would be, but we dis-
covered four classmates lolling about the beach. Lurruim' Hirflz, ,lime lelorgloz,
Nancy Cliasf' and .wlnn Arnold were engrossed in a letter they had just received
from Eileen Rogers who was head nurse at the Cf R. Hrz'gys' Hospital in Chicago.
Charlie's name as the head of a hospital surprised us, but Eileen's letter explained
that on a trip to Alaska he had discovered a cure for growing pains. Surely a dis-
covery such as this rated the reward he received. Uther Natick girls Eileen men-
tioned were .llury Szvemzcy, head of the Children's XYard, Guin' Cillllllllfllfji, tfrtzrt'
Lcgvc, R050 StIf'Z'LIfli, and Helen .S't'ln'z1fv1c.
Leaving the girls to their reading we strolled through the Amusement Park.
Ihwirl Hiirker arrested our attention as he proclaimed the wonder of the Aerial Act

would take a trip. lt was really very amazing.
XYe were practically on the last leg of our trip from New York to Hoston to
Natick. Un the way we encountered difficulties, the worst of which was a storm.
A forced landing was necessary and we thought we had surely come to the end of
XYe landed in a large snowdrift. Uur pilot's calculations judged us to be in
the Catskill Mountains. Groping through the drifts we were shocked to find a
large sign proclaiming this "Cat Hill" and not the Catskills. Was this possible or
was our mind playing tricks on us? Going a bit further we stumbled upon a small
cabin with "Cat Hill Gang" on the door. Opening it we were stunned to see Tom
Qzfirlr, B011 Fair, lfuddy Potter, Hob Ht1l'lfI'Ilff, Pete Prescott and .lrtliur Clistizmizif
seated around a table eating. After talking over old times they gave us their story.
Meeting much competition because of their "butch" haircuts and beards they had
effected, they resolved to leave the world behind and live alone.
Tom Quirk was chief cook and Bob Fair, head housekeeper. liuddy l'otter
and Bob Harding were working on a formula to perpetuate youth. Caz and Pete
were the only ones that had any touch with civilization. Once a month they took
the dog sled and team down to a village to obtain supplies.

l'arents 'lleaclierss elfriends:
lt gives me pleasure as l'resident of the Class of 1947 to welcome you to our
graduation exercises. 'llllis evening we are gathered here together as a class unit
for the last time. Yery shortly each one will go his separate way. We are very
grateful to you parents, teachers, who through your patience and gttidance, have
made our education possihle. llc stand ready and willing to accept the challenge
of responsilmility and you will not find tis wanting. We hope we may make you
proud of Us and that whatever we may do, we the Class of 1947, will prove to you
that we liavt-.prolitetl hy your leadership and are hetter citizens of the great tomor-
row hecause ot your example.

HCAN AMERICA MEET THE CHALLENGEIV'
'lihe lfnited States of America faces a wonderful opportunity for bringing
permanent peace to the entire world. Vie. alone, the greatest exponents of free-
dom, remain the natural arhiters of peace among nations which are seeking enor-
Illolls retrilmutions to pay the price of war.
We must continue economically and militarily strong, not to antagonize, but
to reassure all people of the determination and sincerity in our aims for peace.
'l'he secrets of the Atomic Bomh must rightfully remain in our guardianship
lo guarantee all against the devastating horror of a third world war.
Aid must he sent to the starving children in Europe, for the future world will
hg the world they make. 'l'o save them now will insure us friends tomorrow.
liut what does this aid mean to America? A lower level of living? Unem-
ployment and scarcity of the needed things of life? These questions are drum-
heats tif pessimism and as depressing as a clirge. The answer is work-opportunity
for employment and an equitable income for each willing lahorer.
Xyithin our own land prejudices that cause strifes must disappear. Often we
talk of freedom, forgetting the mocking paradoxes that surround us. We must
ueave a strong cloth of justice that will cover rich and poor, black and white, Jew
and tlentile, foreign and native-horn. Unly if we guarantee equal rights to all
.-Xmericans may we he qualilied in huilding a foundation of democracy on a world
lluriug the war years many Americans were willing to endure sacrifices that
we might have peace.
Now discouraged and fearful, they are desperately struggling through strikes,
disputes, and economic coercion to regain and enjoy once more all the privileges of
a great democracy.
Nu one nation can remain secure and prosperous in a panic-stricken worldg
therefore, we must lalior unceasingly to huild a structure of peace which no one
could successfully challengeg a world court that will completely liberate all people
from destructive passions, greed and lust for power. 4
Peace must he planned on a universal liasis. A new world must he created-
a new spirit in which nations will learn to approach their difficulties with mutual
tolerance. liears of aggression niust cease to exist. Smaller nations must have

justice and protection. The realization of this peace depends on its acceptance by
In this new world there must be free and constant trade to give an equal dis-
tribution of the fruits of man's labor. Unnecessary trade barriers. hampering the
flood of goods, must be broken down.
ln view of our huge national debt our own standard of living cannot be main-
tained unless the exchange of goods move more freely over all the world.
As a nation we must make up our mind for the kind of world we want and
with enthusiasm strive to form a sane and intelligent organization to govern this
The United Nations is the hope of mankind and upon our land falls the great
task of convincing the world, through our leadership, that the purpose for which
the United Nations was conceived can finally be achieved.
This is our great obligation,-our great opportunity. Nye cannot remain an
"Island of Prosperity in a Sea of Misery." The eyes of a war-weary world are
upon us, praying with renewed hope and faith for liberty and justice. To aid the
discouraged in their devastated land, we must work with understanding, striving
for this goal. Only in this way' will we prove our right to the great heritage of

The curfew has tolled the parting of another day and with a deep sigh of
regret we are about to leave those happy- recollections of yesteryear, years which
will prove to be the most contented and carefree of our lives.
During otll' progress along the way we will encounter scores of new friends.
but the ones that will remain closest to us are the old friends.
Many of us of the graduating class as time rolls on will compete with our
fellow contemporaries for various positions:
f'XYe'll see a gleaming star somewhere,
XYill lead us on our way,
Xkvith sympathy, love and courage sublime,
Seeing immortality all the day."
Fellow classmates! We have been given a firm foundation on which to huild.
Lord, grant that we make the most of that great advantage! Treading along the
course, we will always cherish the reinembrances of this evening and will await
anxiously the moment when once again our thoughts will be renewed in class
From this day forward we will have joined the multitude of people seeking
new adventures in this disturbed world. Great industrial agitations and unchecked
exploitations of capital threaten our national structure. These difficulties require
man's utmost ingemiity to suppress. The incompetent, daring, dishonest politician
must pass. We have too often noticed these characters usurp the station of patriots.
This circumstance has been so frequent that men have ceased to concern themselves
IS THF SASSAMON
with matters political. But now they must act. They see that the nation is totter-
ing, bulging under the strain. 'llhey have come to realize that the ancient prophesy
uf "Revolution" is not an impossibility. "XYhcn Faith is lost, when Honor dies
the man is dead." Xte need another Lincoln just now and a host of self-sacrificing,
brave, wise patriotic men who can take the good old "Ship of State" and haul her
over on the true course.
ln the words of Thackeray:
'tUh, be humble, my brother, in your prosperity! Be gentle with those
who are less fortunate, if not more deserving. Think, what right have you
lo be scornful, whose virtue is a deficiency of temptation, whose success may
be a chance, whose rank may be an ancestor's accident, whose prosperity is
very likely a satire."
'llhroughout our scholastic career teachers have endeavored to instil into our
daily actions, kindness as a watchword. Ella XYheeler XYilcox penned the lines:
"So many Gods. So many creeds, So many ways that wind and wind, XYhile just
the art of being kind is all this sad world needs l"
The three years at Natick High School have been for most of us enjoyable
years. A greater portion of the credit for our pleasant experience goes to the
untiring and devoted efforts of our teachers. lt is difhcult to describe sufficiently
the helpfulness and understanding that they have so generously showered upon us.
Adequate words to express our appreciation are sealed in our hearts, words which
perhaps never could be expressed properly, yet they are as precious gems that will
remain with us forever. lt is with thank fulness and deep gratitude that we, the
class of 1947, extend to the faculty our profound feeling of appreciation.
As we pass into our chosen fields the time is ripe for an abundance of clear,
diplomatic action. Xte, the new edition to the world's builders. have a tremendous
task ahead of us. Each individual possesses a vital cog in the wheel that is attempt-
ing to grind out eternal peace. lt need not matter how small or insignificant the
job may appear to be, its successful completion will influence significantly man's
attempt for universal harmony. .lust as the winning of an athletic contest requires
each man's skill and perseverance, the quest for lasting serenity requires each man's
utmost effort. XYe must lind the proper road and pursue it faithfully, together.
The fate of this world is in our hands.
Classmates! Let us prove to ourselves and to all mankind that we are masters
of our fate. Klay we realize our dreams and ambitions, but never at any time
should we forget our training. lf some of us do not reach the heights-if some
should meet with disillusionment by the way, try remembering that there are still
many things in this world worth while.
"lt is easy enough to be pleasant,
XYhen life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is one who will smile.
Xthen everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble,
And always comes with the years,
And the smile that is worth the praises off earth,
ls the smile that shines through tears."

of humor, there would still be one person left laughing, and
he would be Ted Gay. Ted's genius for making people see
the light side of any situation has lifted many a gloomy
heart. He enjoys all sports, his favorite being hockey, where
he has shown outstanding ability.

lt's a lucky thing for us that "Gil" has both brains and
a sense of humor. He falls back on that wit of his when
many of us befuddled disciples of learning apply to him for
aid in Math. His English compositions are really something
to hear. .

THE SASSAMON 67
The Natick High Girls' Glee Club consists of sixty odd voices who were
chosen after embarrassing voice tests were given. Mr. Mayberger, our able in-
structor, then divided us into three parts, alto, second soprano, and soprano. XYe
soon elected officers who were lva Roberts for President and Beverly Robinson for
Secretary-Treasurer. In inspection we found many talented soloists among our
ranks including the seniors, Hilda Banks and Priscilla Farrant. XYe gave concerts
in our own assembly and at the Natick XYoman's Club. By May our repertoire
was increasing by leaps and bounds and we put on a good showing at our own May
Festival, the State Festival at Medford and the New England Festival in Ports-
mouth, New Hampshire. Life in the Glee Club was not all work as we had many
merry minutes also. XYe who must leave bid this all fond adieu and will recall
these happy days whenever we hear one of "our" songs in later years.

BOYS' GLEE CLUB
The Boys' Glee Club was organized last year by Mr. Maybergcr. The boys
taking an active interest rushed forth to make this group a success. The club, made
up of numerous Sinatras and Crosbys, advanced rapidly. This year they have pro-
duced many enjoyable assemblies besides appearing at the XYoman's Club and also
taking an active part in the yearly music festival which was presented in May.
Talented "Gerry" Thomas and George Stockbridge, the accompanists, also lfred
Dutton and Donald Hubbard, the soloists, have brought extra credit In this choral
group. Next year the boys will lose Gerry and Fred but we all feel sure that there
is a quantity of talent in the club to replace these two members.

MIXED GLEE CLUB
The mixed Glee Club meets once a week in the assembly hall and under the
direction of Mr. lVlayberger, many songs are sung and the boys and girls have
opportunity to blend their voices together.
They have sung in assembly, at the XYoman's Club, and took the leading part
in the May Music Festival.
This organization is the first of its kind since the coming of Mr. lklayberger
and is enjoyed by all who hear and participate in it.
