DeMeritt, a teacher of languages in the Natick High School from September, 1944, to june, 1954. Born in Watertown, Massachusetts, Mrs. De- Meritt was a graduate of Watertown High School and Radcliffe College. While at Natick she coached the senior play over a period of years and took an active interest in all class affairs. Her untimely death dn October 2, 1954, was a shock to her family and friends. Vain the tribute we would pay her, words cannot express What it meant to have her with us, and our thankfulnessg Sweet the memory she has left us, though our hearts are sad." WELCOME ADDRESS ?arents, Teachers, and Friends: On behalf of the Class of 1955 it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you this morning to our Class Day Exercises, the first to be held in this Jeautiful auditorium of our new Natick High School. It is my privilege to express to you our appre- :iation for the fine education and innumerable benefits which you have afforded us. I wish to assure you of our determination to use to the best possible advantages the opportunities which you have made available to us. DONALD PEOPLBS WELCOME ADDRESS Parents, Teachers, and Friends: It is with a feeling of honor and gratitude that l address you this evening on behalf of the Class of 1955. This ceremony marks the beginning of a new and changed life. As the class representa- tive I know that I voice the thoughts and senti- ments of my classmates on this memorable occa- sion. I want to thank our parents and teachers for their guidance, help, and encouragement through our school years. Our paths will be many and varied, our thoughts will be troubled as the world today is troubled, but we can take courage from our patents who also faced uncertain times, but who knowing that they had truth and justice on their side, triumphed. With this example to follow plus knowledge, faith and confidence acquired through the patience and understanding of our teachers, our future should be bright with suc- CCSS.

Neither seems to have found the relationship that will make clear what each can expect from the other. The place of the ado- lescent in our complex, cosmopolitan civilization of this twentieth century is isolation in a "No-Man's-Land". Society considers young people to be immature and irre- sponsible and feels they must be segregated from the real world the adult knows. Adults apparently hope the youth will be spared the shock of making mistakes, thus learning the contradictions in their culture. Young people are constantly being pressured by various factions, each competing for their time and loyalty. These factions tend to operate independently of one another with conflicting purposes and their attention becomes focused on furthering their own interests rather than in aiding in the development of the boy or girl. There is a trend today known as highapressure advertising. Business men will tell you it is an absolute necessity to the function of modern business. Youth, too, needs its advertis- CLASS ESSAY By PATRICIA GRAHAM ing, but certainly not the kind that is prevalent today. It the attitude of the adults that has a decided bearing on tl barrier that exists between the older and the younger gener. tions. lt is this barrier that causes the adult to wonder abou the behavior of the youth .... There is a gap, due to the lac of communication, that could be narrowed by the two grout developing a mutual relationship. The young people do not want society to ignore complet' ly the formidable and frightening facts about juvenile di linquency, but the world is told too often what is wrong wit teen-agers. Why not ask ourselves what is right with them There are thousands of good, substantial young people wit honorable goals. The teen-ager feels he has a certain degree of indepenc ence. However, there are still certain qualities he looks fc in the adult which he uses for guidance in assuming hi responsibilities. Youth wishes patience and understandin from his elders. He would also Hnd security in the adult s that he, too, may face life with a sense of security. Tw thousand years ago there lived a Man who possessed supreni qualities that have never been equalled. It was He who saii "Suffer little children to come unto me." His patience an understanding cannot be approached by the adult, but yout would ask his elders to use His example as their guide. It i little to ask, yet it is important to the young person tryin to find his way out of this "No-Man's-Land". To aid him i finding the gateway to adulthood he wants from his elder an orientation to adulthood, rather than protection fror adult society. Youth expects a certain amount of suppoi from adults. In return, what can society expect from youth "No-Man's-Land" is the place where the maturing perso must make extremely important choices. He is often opt. mistic and idealistic about his future. By constantly seekin knowledge and experience he will learn and grow. In hi search it is possible that he will make mistakes. Experienc is still the best teacher. The dependency on the family gradu ally lessens. The young person must now prove his capabilit to raise his own family. For a number of young people mar riage is not too distant from high school graduation. In mal: ing a selection of his life's work, be he Christian or Jew, hi must choose a vocation that is good according to the standard of his religion and background, a good vocation being what ever work he feels God wishes him to do in the world. Youtl must face reality as well as be idealistic in finding his owr "way of lifeu. These are some of the things society can expect This is an ever-changing world. A wealth of opportunity is open to all. N o movement or reform is proposed that Wil not be carried out by a future generation. Youth is ever the source of unlimited possibilities. Society can expect the ulti mate efforts of the citizens of tomorrow to help fulfill it. hopes. In the words of the poet: "When duty whispers low, 'Thou must' The youth replies, "I can'." -PATRICIA GRAI-IAM. FAREWELL ADDRESS By PATRICIA MARTIN A true and lasting peace will never be achieved in this world unless every man assumes the role of a re- sponsible citizen, living under God's law. In our edu- cation a firm foundation is laid for us to take on this charge in an intelligent manner. In our science and mathematics courses we have developed logical think- ing and a respect for the almighty power that controls the universe. From the teachings of our history and .English courses we have discovered that war never solves a problem, it only creates new ones. We have been taught that prejudice has no place in our lives. We should take a man for what he is, not his race, color, creed or economic status. The current issues in the news have taken on a new meaning for us as our knowledge has broadened. One fact alone has been impressed upon us . . . the need for an enduring peace. just how is this peace to be attained? we must all play our part. True, not all of us will become statesmen, politicians, or presidents. We will not all have a large amount of influence on the peoples of this world. But each of us will have his part to play. If we bring about a freedom from dis- turbance in our own little sphere of influence, then we are contributing to world-wide tranquility. The first thing man must have in order to have peace even within himself is a firm moral law to com- mand his life and all his actions, whether personal or social. When one is just and charitable within him- self then he becomes kind and liberal with his neigh- bors. But this, though good in itself, is not enough to make a responsible citizenry and establish a true peace. Man must also become aware of the current news in order to understand the basic issues that torment the world today. One must then be willing to work long and hard to attain one's goal. Here we can take a les- son from the scientists who played a role in the dis- covery of atomic energy. They gave of themselves to achieve their end. Peace will never be won by the lazy or unconcerned. People who shirk their duty, who scoff at the need for hard work, are not our allies. If mankind continues to live in a selfish way without concern for his neighbors, at home and across the sea, then the penalty will be our spiritual deterioration and probable atomic war. If this war comes, then the blame will not lie on a few, it must be shouldered by all of us. Therefore, all of us must acquire a sense of personal re- sponsibility toward the spiritual and moral recovery of our nation and world. To quote a member of the Atom- ic Energy Commission, Thomas E. Murray, in a speech last November," . . . No man stands aloof from today's crisis . . . No man stands outside of it . . We must all play our part in establishing world tranquility. The secrets of the atomic age were unfolded only at the cost of much hard work and cooperative efforts. Like- wise, only hard work and an awareness of our responsi- bility, under God, to our fellow man will this world ever be free from fear, ignorance, and oppression. This, then, is the message we leave behind. We will take upon us the role of citizens of our great country well aware of our responsibility toward man and our dependence on God. There is much for us to accom- plish. Probably, there will be many disappointments, but we will not give up. We will always keep before us our rules of charity and justice, and someday,.surely, there will be peace in the world. PATRICIA :MARTIN The 1955 class history oihcially began in September, 1952, when the recent graduates of Coolidge Junior High School joined by St. Patrick's alumni proceeded to make their subtle but permanent impression on the history of Natick High School. After the first few tumultuous days were survived, we were oflicially in- stalled as Natick High students at the Welcome Sopho- more Assembly presented by the administration. Short- ly thereafter, the "Welcome Sophomore Dance" was held by the Student Council, and just as we were be- ginning to feel pretty much at home, elections were upon us. A hectic campaign was followed by the elec- tion of Bill Hayes as President, June Bennett, Vice President, Janet Meyers, Secretary, and Beverly Ross, Treasurer. The Executive Board was organized and our class was given representation on the Student Council. It was decided that class dues would be four dollars, 18 CLASS HISTORY By ELLEN LINNEHAN which really broke us, and these funds were supple- mented by the sale of Christmas-candy baskets. Before we knew it Christmas vacation was on us, which was a pretty clever way to prepare us for our first experi- ence with mid-years. In late February we amazed the senior critics with our tremendous package of talent, aptly entitled the Sophomore Assembly. Our first at- tempt at crashing the higher social circles came in the guise of a May-day dance, a smashing success which put our class ahead financially. just as spring fever began getting a powerful hold upon us, we were pre- sented with finals which really got us in condition for the summer-long vacation. When we returned in the fall we were among the upperclassmen, and were properly proud of the fact. In our junior elections all the ofiices exchanged hands but that of Secretary for which we re-elected janet Meyers. We chose as President Louie Giannetti, for Vice Presi- dent, Beverly Ross, and Dotty SanClemente for Treas- urer. The year really got rolling in the early fall, and plans were underway for the junior Prom which we wanted to make the best ever. We were most pleased to hear that there would be no mid-years, and by way of celebrating, most of us entered projects in the sec- ond annual science fair and some of us won awards. Now it was decided that our funds could stand a little boosting, so we started our relentless "beanie cam- paign" and didn't give up until just about every soul in NHS had a red and blue head covering. Now the Prom was in full swing. We decided to present an underwater scene and the decoration committee slaved over squids and divers. In early March, three of our members, Patricia Graham, Ellen Linnehan, and Fran- cis Pierce were elected to the National Honor Society, the smallest junior group ever to have been chosen. Shortly afterwards, representatives were elected to Boys' and Girls' State. Terry Smith and june Bennett would attend conferences in Amherst, Massachusetts, in June. After the Prom was declared a complete suc- cess, the year was over. We left for our summer vaca- tion with promises of a new multi-million dollar struc- ture ringing in our ears. In September it was ready for us. We had a wonder- ul time getting used to the school and the fact that ve were the "wheels." For so long we had envied the eniors, and now we had a taste of fame for ourselves. vfuch to our regret and sorrow we had lost two teach- ers. Mrs. Helen H. DeMerritt, beloved language teach- er, died in the early fall. Miss Marion Pothier, our :lass advisor, had taken a leave of absence. Miss Finn vas our new adviser. Elections came forth promptly, ind we again changed our slate of officers. Don Peoples :vas elected President, Terry Smith, Vice President, Carole Woods, Secretary, and Betty Grimm, Treasurer. Dick Rokes and Terry Smith led our football team :hrough an outstandingly successful season, suffering but one loss. Our classmates now headed all the school activities. Bill Hayes was commissioner of the Safety Patrol, while Robert Ciccarelli, Terry Smith, and Dorothy San Clemente were the ofiicers of the Student Council. janet Meyers was head-cheerleader, and Ellen Linnehan wa seditor of the Sarramon. New members were elected to the National Honor Society and offi- cers were elected. Patricia Graham was chosen Presi- dent, Ellen Linnehan, Vice President, and Janice Col- lins, Secretary. For the first time in our history, we were fortunate in having a foreign exchange student become a part of our class. Claude Latune of Agen, France, has been with us since September, and has added interest and diversity to our courses. Dick Whitaker received the Good Neighbor award and Carole Woods was named DAR Good Citizen. Louis Giannetti repre- sented us on Good Government Day. When we had returned from Christmas vacation and survived our mid-years, perhaps the most profitable experience of our high school career came with the advent of Dr. Lore Ketzler, a German teacher of an international ex- change program who joined our faculty for a month. All of us were not able to meet her, but those who did received a most broadening outlook on world affairs. The Hurry was now on, and everyone seemed to be busy doing something. The third Science Fair was a great success, and many seniors received prizes. The next big thing to come along was the senior play, which 1 of ., 'if-,X ff? fail' J. ,f f !

Mr. Bongarzone directed the production this year, and was assisted by Miss Buckley, formerly of the junior High School. As soon as the play was over, the excitement of graduation hit us, and we've been enveloped ever since. Now it's our week, and we're having a wonderful time. Last night we had our class party, today is our final all- school gathering, tomorrow we look forward to our reception, and next Monday is the day we have been preparing for for twelve years. I think we can all say it has been worth it. Now we're all going our various ways and it hardly seems that our class history is ended. The history that our outstanding class of 1955 will make is just beginning. 19 CLASS PROPHECY By DIANNB MARUN, PAUL LAINCZ, JAMES McAvoY The Boston sky glistens and sparkles from the gigantic rays of massive spotlights. The Metropolitan is a mass of noise and people. From the farthest spot on the globe, people of significance arrive for the greatest film premier ever pre- sented for the greatest motion picture yet produced. Gargan- tuan jet airliners, sleek Rolls-Royce automobiles, roller-skates bring the elite of the world to this colorful spot. Scores of policemen hold back the surging mass who strain to glimpse these personalities. Their enthusiasm is overwhelming. As we move closer, we hear an officer remark, "Get back before I . . . " Yes, this excitement shakes the heavens from their celestial roots causing one angel to remark, "Gee! look there, one of the most important celebrities concerned has arrived." The police are bringing him through the crowd who tight to get a souvenir. One young female enthusiast does, it's his pants! My gosh what a sight this is! Another male fan gives him his pants. What loyalty! The celebrity now arrives in the roped-in area, clad in a black dinner jacket and a pair of white pegged pants! He now sits down on the back of a kneeling policeman and unfastens his roller skates. As we peer closer at the face of this distinguished person, it's none other than Premier John Roberts: of Robertsovia, which is governed under Robertsism, which he considers a complete farce, but he enjoys it. What a man! He is now being escorted by two of the nation's private detectives, Francir Montagna and "Chuck" Healey. A TV cameraman Bob fFlarhJ Wright is attempting to get a shot of a customized Cadillac chaulfeured and built by Tom Pratt. Now emerging from this mechanical wonder are two top operatic stars, Nancy Wakelin and Barbara Danforth. What a duo of musical bliss! Noted journalist, Ellen Linnehan, has just shoved her press card in front of the duo's official escort, Admiral jerry Schaefer, who is permitting an interview after the performance. Following the latter in the confused pro- cession, representing "La Mode" fashion magazine are, editors: "Polly" Perhinr, "Ginny" Phillips, Rath Lambert, and Barbara Whitledge with their escorts, publisher David Harfhrnang cigar manufacturer Roy Wyrnanf band leader William Garvey and Professor of Australian Aboriginal Lit- erature, Gary Hoyt. Yes, its a bonton of exciting people. The television cameras are now swinging through this mass of spectators. Bill fFadeoatj Myrich on Camera One is focusing on a charming couple, hockey referee, jofeph Shield, and his vivacious fiancee, ,lean Grover, model for Robert Mo.rrnan'r "Girls Unlimited" model agency. Sitting on the shoulders of a statue of Robert E. Lee is artist Iarner 0'Connell madly sketching in swift strokes this stupendous scene. jim is art editor of "Super Amazing" magazine. Busily handing him :w pencils are feature artist Paul Robertr and art critic an Bartalurri. Such an industrious group! The crowd has ddenly grown silent, more celebrities are arriving. Who ill it be? By George, it is George, George Silver, leading ithority on octopus breeding. He is accompanied by Edith anucci, his private secretary. What's this descending from e heavens. It's a heliotrope helicopter of Barnes Airways mwn by its president, Dick Barnet himself. The 'copter is aw landed, and climbing out are those two goy debutantes Natick society, Patricia and Bea Rae, with their bon vant escort Terry Smith, manufacturer of platinum foot- ill cleats for Ivy League colleges. The helicopter has now sen to land in the 'copter lot. There's low-slung sports car inding its way through policer..-n's legs. It comes to an arupt stop and out hops the gay pro-hockey hero, Don ane, throwing kisses to the crowd. He is accompanied by s ftancee, Barbara Hopf, a New Yorker model. TV News Reporter Bill fGrinl Hayes has just received a 'port that Paul Curley and Barbara Bean have just Com- letecl their round-the-world scooter tour, and will arrive ere shortly. Paul said that he met an old friend, Norman irhrnan, in the Gobi Desert, who was searching for the ist city of Shmurd. Norm was said to have had with him Dick" Sirneone, noted bird specialist, who is studying the feeding habits of the Mongolian Kapoopie Bird. Good ack, men! Pulling over to the curb now is a Cadillac-built bus spe- ally decorated for this gala occasion. The bus-driver, Dave rarror, dressed in white tie and tails, steps from the bus nd rolls a red carpet from the bus to the entrance. Emerging 'om the bus now is the All-American Ping-Pong Team led y Charlet MacGregor, captaing Nadine Schnieder, co-cap- ting john Proctor, right paddle, Dick Roker, left paddle, and Brian McGhee, ball carrier. With them are the Boomerang Champs of North America, with Evelyn Delgato as captain, and her slingers Hanna Nelron and Shirley I-Iarrir. The last group to appear from the bus is the "Mad Motorcyclistsf' Don COne Armb Zilcb, Dick CFender-Dentl Slade, Fred CBumper-Guardb Connell and last Dave CTail-Lightl Woodbury. No, there's one more, it's their cool mechanic Fran fStraight-Eighth Quirk. Here come Pauline Carey, Marcia Clazuen, and Iudy Elton, whose names are still blinking brightly in Hollywood. Next to appear before the glitter of bright lights, the camera picks up famous models, Anne Crowell, June Ben- nett, Evelyn Dragan, Nancy Cox and "Look" cover-girl "Miss Complexion"-Barbara Fieldr. Directly behind them are many more stars such as "Larry" Curran, noted orchestra leader at Ciro's, "Larry" and "Lou" DeMaria, trumpet and clarinet, currently employed by Spike jones. Singing stars "Patty" Beirne, and Roberta Herek, who have become popular with the teen-agers, are with Columbia records. Our camera is now focusing on Louir Giannetti, leading disc jockey of Boston, and his pal Bob Carnaroli, who is the country's most popular male crooner. We now see approaching from the crowd, Joanne McNeil, Gene Kel- ly's new dancing partner, who we hear has made many new musicals this season. Her escort is Felix Boyce, MGM's latest dancing star. As our cameras move closer and finally get inside the Metropolitan, we focus on some very attractive candy-and- cigarette girls which include Patricia Alcoch, Carol Spear, Barbara Ahearn, and Phyllis Cockell. They are gaily dressed in bright costumes designed by Pat Branagan of Fifth Avenue. As we walk down the aisle we see the famous "Four Spades," Bill Fotter, Bob Goodwin, Bob Ciccarelli, and Don Hugher, with their manager Boh Eoanr, all enthusiastically munching on boxes of popcorn. Interviewing people in the audience we meet Runell Brooks owner of the nations largest night spot, the Stork Club, accompanied by Eva Churchill, best-dressed woman of the year, and Phil Gately, wealthy owner of the Coconut Grove. Directly behind this group we see fashion designers Janice C ollinf, Jean Kruger, Connie Levine and Betty Grimm of New York, Hollywood, and Las Vegas. We hear they have designed the wardrobes to be worn in this picture. Congratulations, girls! On our right we see many more prominent people, such as the Countess of France, Patricia Graham, and the Count, Dennir Ciccarelli. Also make-up arists, Margaret Keene of Hollywood, Wilena Kenneally of New York and janet Hall of Miami. Accompanied with them are directors Harold Broclerr, Wally Ely, and Neil Carmichael, all of Hollywood, California. We see many showgirls and stand-ins in our audience, such as Ann Blumenthal, Kay Fannon, Martha Hanron, and Ioan Garheclian, who will soon be top stars on Broadway. The cameras are now turning and catching people com- ing through the front door. I have never before seen so many stars and famous people in Boston. Olympic star of 1965 Judy David, is coming toward us and with her are Tom Carey and Carol Athinron also Olym- pic stars of 1965. Now the doors are closing and America's News Editors rush by. Mary Detore, Boston Post, Philip Hunter, Boston Record, Patricia Kelly, New York Times, and Gretchen Dowrt, Boston Herald. As we look around we see Boston Police Chief Walter H orning, and prominent policewomen Roberta Harcourt and Janet Donahue. Walking by them is Min Rore Bellofato model at Rosanna's Beauty Salon on 42nd Street owned by Rose Frafca and Marianne H ichr. Yes, sir. This occasion is the greatest thing since Lincoln's inauguration. Someone said he saw him here. Enjoy the show, Abe. More sports stars are arriving on the scene. We can see a flash of red hair now and then. There she is, it's Sue Mallery world famous pro-tennis star with Al Vye, world renowned test pilot. By Zeus here is something to see, some of the nations top fashion models have just entered. There's Grace McKay, Sandra Williamr, Jeri Spadoni, and Ioan Lyncb. Their loveliness is causing some weaker men in this crowd to aint. A doctor is running over to help one now. It's Don 'eopler, discoverer of the cure for a common cold. His reautiful nurse and secretary, Anne Spear is giving him a land. Music is playing somewhere. lt's "La Marsiellaisef' Being assisted out of a gorgeous bright blue limousine by Zobert York, a famous senator, is Min Claude LaTune, irance's first woman Prime Minister, and she is looking as :harming as ever. As we wait for more celebrities to arrive, the cameras pick up some more of the activity inside the Metropolitan. It's fabulously beautiful in here is this immense lobby. As we pass by the guests, we center on a small group of celebrities. In the center is Mary McGinnir, world famous caricaturist, drawing the head of that well-known ployboy baseball star, I obn Mano. A hearty laugh has lifted somewhere. It's coming from nearby where stars are listening to the hilarious wit- ticisms of television's great comedian, Al Wardwell. There seems to be many of these groups centered around some well-known person. Let's look for more. There's another In the middle of this one we can hear United Nations delegate Gordon Pipe, and General ofthe Air Force Douglas' Newman discussing the Antartica. In that same group is Barbara Main and jane Howe dramatic coaches for the film,Dotty San- Clenzente, the worlds greatest Shakespearean actress and with her Dick CKing Leahj Wittaker, who have just closed a nine year run of "Hamlet" TV camera director Iamer Martin is signaling frantically for his cameramen to pick up Arthur Tupper, author of the best-seller "The Phlegmatic Martian," and with him is his girl "Friday," Gloria Waterman. More stars are coming through the netrance now. There is tive of the nations top physicists, Patricia Martin, Edward Mesronz, Alfred Murray, Peter Poley, and Robert Tenzprendola, who by the way was heard to comment "Z-X-Z" most enthusiastically. Those "brains" have been reported to secretly developed the new flying aircraft carrier, designed by Admiral larner Ploujfe. Dr. Willard Morre, Yellowstone National Park tree surgeon, and Marion Looney, noted woman politician, have just ar- rived. Gail Mabaney, Sandra LaFleur, Anne Wardwell, and joan Rafferty, chapeau designers from Hollywood are coming in wearing their chic creations. A number of the nations loveliest are arriving at this moment. Smiling prettily, there is the beautifully brown-eyed Ianide Corey, motion picture hair stylist, who is rumored to have declined some handsome movie offers. With her is the well- known cosmetic queen, Rore McAdanz.t, and Marie Morgan, the charming moderator of televisions "American Home" show. 23 A buzzer is ringing and every one is hurrying from the lobby to find their seats. All is quiet, the lights dim, and the Superamscope screen flashes the image of Betty Wall, the renowned Hollywood columnist who says: "Ladies and Gentlemen, you are about to witness the greatest achievement in the hlm industry. To fully understand the work of this spectacle, we have with us the people who made it all pos- sible." The screen now shows Dr. Margaret Parrnenter, Dr. Barbara Wirths, who completed the medical and physicologi- cal research. "next to me," says Barbara, "is Nancy Pine, the head wardrobe designer, and Carole W oods, interior decora- tor for the set. "Thank you," replies Carole, "and on my left, Pauline Saoard and Marjorie Safviano, who modeled all the women's clothing for casting director Francis Pierce." The scene changes and we see a golden archway and hear an offstage voice say, "the writer of this story, Mr. Ronald Pike." Ron steps out and he introduces its wealthy producers, james Sweeney and Charles Krztpski, who in turn introduce, General of the Army Fred Tapper, technical advisor for sequences, and Hollywood's finest make-up artists, Lucille Tessier, Wendy Vasco, and Sandra Spinney. Sandra steps aside and introduces Miss Candance White, who wonderfully adapted the story for ti y . " wifi ,"" N :mn 53 il '5f'!v" the movie. "Thank you," she says in a pleasant tone, "I would now like to introduce the man responsible for the develop- ,ment of the Superamascope screen, Mr. Bruce Perkins, and the wizard who designed the amazing 4-D camera, Mr. Ronald Uhlinf' Ron steps back and comments in a smooth voice, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to present the actresses. First the leading ladies, Miss Gail Lomhard, and janet Meyers, whose loveliness and talent in this picture have awarded them the titles of movie queens of America, janet Bache, the bub- bling comedienne who completely changes pace and takes on a dramatic role in the picture, Miss Anna Vacchiano, the newcomer to Hollywood, who gives a performance winning an academy award, and finally the fabulous box office at- traction Helen Sostilio one of the Movie Capitals tops." Enough of this breathtaking loveliness and on the only two male members of the cast. First, Mr. Thomas Arthur, the gay, carefree, nonchalant actor which has made him the dream man of more than fify-million women. And last but not least, we bring you Mr. Rohert Wigglesworth, the lilm's comedy relief, who provides some of the greatest laughs in his most superb performance. "And now my friends, sit back, relax and enjoy the great- est, most stupendous film the world has ever seen ..,.

Elections were held early in October and at our first meeting we happily welcomed Miss Rafferty and Mr. Carlow as our advisors. With Robert Cicarrelli as President, Terry Smith as Vice-President, and Dorothy SanClemente as Secretary, the Council promptly went to work. This year because of our large enrollment we had a new system of representation. Instead of homeroom representatives we now have eight seniors, seven juniors, six sopho- mores, and five freshmen on the Council. The presidents of each class, the presi- dent of the Safety Patrol, and the editor-in-chief of the Sassamon are also members. This has been a busy and happy year for council members. In October, we acted as guides to the thousands of people who came to see our new Natick High School and we have sponsored two enjoyable and profitable school dances. In january we cooperated with the Athletic Department in presenting Filmarama for the jacket fund and the student exchange program. Natick sent representatives to Student Council conventions at Randolph and Norwood. It is always a rich experience to be able to share with other high school boys and girls the lessons we learn as Council members. These lessons help vs to develop initiative and responsibility in our own school and we always come back to Natick with a sense of pride in the accomplishments of our own student body. 70 'Q Vw F' SAFETY PATROL Front row: P.

The problems confronting the group in the new campus-style building were very different from those in the old school. We now have a much larger area and have doubled our enrollment. The responsibilities of the patrol are daily increas- ing, but with frequent conferences and the realization that without competent leaders the trafhc could cause tardiness to class, disorderly conduct in the corri- dors, and even injuries, all have cooperated to increase efficiency. 4 I 1 71 EL' Sgr' l t f 1 SASSAMON LITERARY STAFF Front row: J.

Healy Audi- torium of our new high school on Friday evening, April 15, when the Class of 1955 produced "What a Life" under the capable direction of Mr. Elito J. Bon- garzone, assisted by Miss Patricia F. Buckley. The plot in this unusual comedy showed Henry Aldrich's amazing ability to find himself in the center of more teen-age entanglements in one hour than most youngsters get into in a lifetime. The efforts of his R PLAY friends to untangle him, combined with the schemes of his enemies to get him in deeper, kept the audience in an uproar. A very capable cast, including Robert Temprendola as Henry, June Bennett as Barbara, and Ann Blumen- thal as Miss Eggleston Cto mention only a fewj did an admirable job in making this play one of the most entertaining productions produced by a senior class.

Several new half-time shows were prepared by the band this year. One was the Gilette Blue-blade Skit and the other The Atom Smarber and Indian War Dance for the Framingham game on Thanksgiving Day. We were competently drilled by our good friend Mr. Eugene Fitzpatrick every clear day last fall. Present rehearsals are concentrating on "Pavanne", "Business For Basses" and other marches. On Wednesday, April 6, the band went to the General Motors Plant at Framingham and gave a Concert for the employees. This year for the first time the annual Transfer of Flag Ceremony was held in our new auditorium. The band, as is their custom, marched the various schools from town to the exercises. 84 it l i ORCHESTRA Pianist: Grace Arena. Front row: Mr. Dietz, A. Spear, E. Mason, J. Woodbury, B.

FOOTBALL The '54 football team which wasnt rated highly in the pre-season predictions came through with an im- pressive record of 7 wins, I loss and l tie. The team started the season successfully defeating Milton 53-O and going on to defeat Braintree for the hrst time in si years 21-6. The team then met a highly spirited Wellesley team and lost 39-12, then tied Needham 15-13, went on to finish the season strongly with wins over Marlboro 28-6, Dedham 26-6, and an impressive win over a strong North Quincy club 40-ld which led up to the high point of the season, upsetting a powerful undefeated Norwood team 58-19. The team climaxed the season with their l3th consecutive win over Framingham 20-O. Led by the Co-Captains Dick Rokes and Terry Smith, the team opened holes in the line for the flashy open-held. running of Tom Arthur. The defensive team was anchored by the brilliant play of Robert Ciccarelli' and Robert Evans. This year's team was comprised mostly of Juniors' who are returning another year. Barring unforseen mishaps they expect to have an exceptionally good season. fu:-,gg '-ggzgqq-mfs,-rfwerw'sf:a-- 1w'1"1mm'asuw:ma A .nal f l u l.vhi' - .,. -fa k I F' F K5 ' . ew 1 V' .1 ., , A-.iwl ,H PA ' .35 fi-""' Lf- Q B+ I it I .5 Q .x I, Q x Q "' is ' f P ,QF il' 'T 1 , -,ssih , ' f a ,K 'K , 0. 5- .N- u, X N 'EA Y' gf n ..

Tom Arthur and Bill Garvey this year's team had a fairly successful season winning fifteen and losing six. Among the six defeats were two to Framingham in regular season play, one to Milton in the Play-offs, and one to South Boston in the Tech. Tournament. At the beginning of the season, Coach Carey had little hope of a good team. He found that there was a lot of spirit before the first week of practice was over. Natick, for the first time in three years, defeated North Quincy. However, in losing to Framingham, a ten-game winning spree over that club was snapped. The first team was composed of Bill Garvey, Terry Smith, Bill Tozier, John Mano, and Tom Arthur. Seeing plenty of action were Al Murray, Jim Arger, and Joe Shaldone. Throughout the year in practice sessions these boys showed the true spirit of Natick. They were Tom Carey, Wallace Ely, Bob Ciccarelli, john Proctor, Charles MacGregor, and jeff Loane. Bill Garvey played a great game against Milton, getting seven- teen points. Tom Arthur again displayed remarkable ball-handling being the best in the Bay State League. His constant hustle was of prime importance in all of our victories. john Mano was the scorer in this quintet. He hit well from the outside and his fine driving resulted in many two-pointers. Bill Tozer was the rebounder of the club. Great things are expected from Bill next year. He is a true competitor. Terry Smith broke into the starting line-up about mid- season. Being a true "team man" Terry passed off many times to his other teammates. His rebounding and jump shots were feared by rival coaches. x G NT 104- AT! , 4205 1 xx 7 .k l '35 "1 I Q I If wrm I If" ve, A TI il 75 j.v. BASKETBALL I Axgqf t,i1A'I'I? 9 ,J I .E ' Imran row, I.

HOCKEY The hockey team in its first year under the new coach, Bob Bell, of the Center School faculty, surprised all the experts who didn't give them a chance. Natick stayed in first place for the first half of the season and never left the first division. In the final game they beat the powerful Brookline team knock- ing them out of first place and thus giving Malden the title. Natick and Brookline tied for second place. An invitation to participate in the State Tourney found Natick losing to a powerful team from South Boston. However, thanks to our great co-captains Don Kane and Paul Curley who urged us on and to Coach Bell who helped prove Natick is really "The Home of Champions", we made a fine record. Skating for the Esmass All Stars were forwards joe Wignor, Duke Curley and Goalie Bill Henderson. Among the seniors leaving are: Curley, Kane, Quirk, Woodbury, Curran, Goodwin and Mgr. Zilch. wg 4., ,, ,. -.' "4'T'7 '5 1--gm 1, ,,. s 4 Q P n INDOOR TRACK Front row: R. Mosman, W. Hayes, D. Hughes, B. Perkins, N. Carmichael, J. Roberts, G. Silver, R. Temprendola, R. Uhlin, F.

TRACK "SS" The Indoor Track team, coached by "Rudy" Fobert and led by Captain Ron Uhlin, had a highly successful season. Our record in dual meets is 40 and 4, a very outstanding record. This year we compiled a record of 3 wins and I loss. In a quadrilateral meet with Lowell, Punchard, and Lawrence at the Andover cage, we had to split first place honors with Lowell. In dual meet competition at the Natick Armory the relay team set a new armory record for this event. This team was un- defeated in dual meet competition at the armory. New armory records were set by Neil Carmichael in the 300. At the Fargo Meet Natick took 2 places, Alan Butchman and Neil Carmichael, placing 2nd and 5rd in the Novice 440. In the BAA we did fairly well with the relay team winning their heat to come in fifth in the final stand- ings. Natick had three state champs in the State Meet. They were Alan Butchman in the 600, Frank Clifford in the 1000, and Bruce Perkins in the mile. Other point winners were Capt Bill Hayes, Ron Uhlin, Neil Car- michael, Carl Vermilyea, Ed Paul, Joel Tibbetts, and Davey Moore. The relay team which took a second consisted of Neil Carmichael leading off, Carl Vermil- yea running second, Ed Paul running third, and Alan Butchman running anchor. But even with this the best we could do was second, losing by 8X 9 of a point to a strong Belmont team. Other outstanding veterans returning from last year's team were John Roberts, Bob Temprendola, Wayne Bartley, Warren Webb and Jim Plouffe. The team was joined by George Silver, Dick Whitaker, Don Hughes, Bud Walsh, Danny Corbosiero, Tom Sheehan, Channing Wagg, and Bob Murphy. Our Manager this year was Dick Cashman, who was always there on the job. The team elected Alan Butchman and Ed Paul as the co-captains for next winter's squad. After completing a fine indoor season, we are look- ing forward to a terrific outdoor one with many cham- pionships. G.A.L. OFFICERS Seated: 1. David, C. Hickey, J. Branagan.

The "League" mem- bers selected a committee to re-write the constitution in order to make room for the freshman class and to change eligibility rules concerning participation in interscholastic sports. This year the G.A.L. sponsored a Play Day and in- vited over seventy girls from the neighboring towns to participate in the volleyball and badminton games offered. Refreshments were served in the cafeteria and plans are being made to make this affair an annual event. OFFICERS: Preiidenr .......... .............................
