HISTORY . .
CLASS PLAY .
We, the Class of 1955, lovingly dedicate this,
our Senior Yearbook to Mrs. Helen H. 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."
?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
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.
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-

There is a great deal of controversy today about juvenile
delinquency and the problems facing our youth. lf we stop
to analyze some of the problems we find that there is a lack
of communication between the youth and the adult. 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-
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
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'."
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.
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,

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

Mr. Bongarzone directed the production this year, and

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.

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
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,

the performance. Following the latter in the confused pro-

Being assisted out of a gorgeous bright blue limousine by
Zobert York, a famous senator, is Min Claude LaTune,

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

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"
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

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-

BUSINESS SERVICE CLUB
The Business Service Club was organized this
year for a two-fold purpose. Girls were assigned
department heads during the X period daily to
do clerical work and get some practical experi-
ence. Other girls remained in the Office Machines
Room to take care of the routine duplicating.
The results have been most gratifying.
STUDENT COUNCIL PRESIDENT
Robert Cicarrelli, president of the Student
Council at Natick High, is affectionately known
to classmates as "Pinzo". A boy with a wonder-
ful disposition, keen wit, and an enviable smile,
we have never seen him out of patience or un-
happy. It is not often a class has the good fortune
to have so capable a member chosen to conduct
school affairs. Bob is also a fine athlete, was a
member of the football and basketball squadsg he
is a talented musician and has a fine voice. We
feel sure he will be most successful in college
and in the business world.

The Student Council is an organization of students elected by students whose
purpose is to promote thebest interests of our school.
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.

The Safety Patrol was organized in September with Mr. Andrews, adviser,
William Hayes, President, Ann Blumenthal, Secretaryg and june Bennett, Robert VL
Goodwin, Donald Peoples, janet Meyers, and john Proctor, Commissioners.
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.

All roads led to the Colonel Jeremiah 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
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.

f As always, the band, one of Natick High Schools strongest links, has been hard
at work this year under the direction of Mr. Roger J. Dietz.
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.

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

Led by Co-capt. 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.

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.

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-
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-
