STUDENT The Student Council for 1958 and 1959 was under the advisorship of Mr, Emmett Shea and Mr. John Carlow The officers were George Williams Presi¬ dent; Sandra Chamberlain, Vice President; and Karen Moore, Secretary, The group of students forming the Student Coun¬ cil sponsored two dances. The first the Welcome Dance was held on September 19, the first social function of the year. The Football Dance was held on December 5, with Paul Ambler ' s orchestra to pro¬ vide the music. Students from Wayland High Schools Student Council visited Natick High School, and Natick ' s went to Wayland. They held this exchange to view different COUNCIL councils, their powers, methods of operating, and to find new ideas to help our school. Vito Capizzo was elected by the Student Council to receive the Jewish War Veteran Award. It is given to the person who best exemplifies the statement, " Classmate Today, Neighbor Tomorrow. " The Council also discussed a code of ethics for Natick High School. They plan many revisions for the Red and Blue Handbook, which is given to enter ing freshmen. Other things which were discussed were: Student dress, schedules for midyear and final exams, the school bulletin board, and changing eligU bility rules although no decision was reached on the latter 20 LIBRARY This year Miss Harris has had twenty-six library ' aides to assist her with routine duties. However, this is the first year that Freshman girls have been selected in September to be members of the group. Ten girls have completed their first year as library aides, ten girls have been library aides for two years, and six girls axe veteran library aides with three years of experience. Some of the duties in the library are u noticed by many but are essential to keep the library functioning properly. A library aide stays ar the desk to check books in and out and to receive library permits. At the end of each period a girl returns the library permits to the study teachers. At the begin- AIDES ning of the school year books from the bindery must have pockets pasted in and cards typed; and throughout the year new books have to be checked, stamped, cataloged, and pre¬ pared for pupil use. Upstairs the magazine and college catalog sections have to be kept up to date with the latest magazines and college catalogs. Library aides also assist in shelving books and arranging books in order according to their classification numbers. This organization performs many other services, too, such as preparing bulletins, typing reserve lists, and doing numerous errands, in addition to dusting and keeping good order generally.

We End in each of the Smimon newspapers published this year, not only the work of the students who have been elected t o be reporters and editors, but contributors from the faculty and the general student body. Miss Patricia Hope of the English department served once again as the advisor to the Satsimun. Nancy Hunt was the editor-in-chief and Mary Pierce was the assistant editor. Karen Moore news editor made sure that her reporters were always on hand at newsworthy events. From the Science Fair to the Coed gym, not a “scoop” was missed. The features staff under the direction of Karen Ruge!!, features editor, was in charge of keeping the students happy. The feature pages were fiHed with jokes, quotes and picture . A dose and accurate coverage of " Olympic 1 ' games and matches was kept by James Bradford ' s sports staff. The scores of both girls ' and boys ' athletic events were recorded faithfully on the famous back page of the SitMunoa. Celia Biagetti ' s literary staff supplied the fiction from the pens of Natkk High s most notable literary talent. Ideas from other schools appeared in Dianne Dixon ' s lively ex¬ change column. Of course where would the Sassamon have been without the art staff, the typing staff, and Jonathan Padover (nicknamed " Patient John¬ nie” ) staff photographer. When the Sassam ascot Contest was held, the industrial arts depart¬ ment made a bright red box and stand to serve as a receptacle for entries. It was neatly lettered by rhe art department and later, served to receive contributions for the Quips and Queries Yankee Trader, and general suggestions. The Sassamastui contest was won by Richard Harris room A 162 The principle which the Sassamon has tried to apply to itself this year was best summed up by Nancy Hunt in an early editorial. The Sassamon of 19584939 has tried to be " a sounding board of student opinion " wi th something for everyone. THE BUSINESS STAFF OF THE SASSAMON The Business Staff of the Sutsmom, our school newspaper, is com cable to the stage hands of a play. Without it the paper could never published. The staff is composed mainly of three divisions: first, the managerial: second, advertisement, and third, subscriptions. The manager ' s respon¬ sibility with the help of his assistant is to sec that the work is done properly and on time; and to see rhat things run smoothly. Heading the advertisement division of the staff is a very important job. It is that person s responsibility to see that all rhe merchants of Natick hape been solicited for support of the paper .and to see that the bills are issued and the money received from the advertisers Next on our list is the subscrip¬ tions division. The person heading this committee must sec that every pupil of Natick High has been approached and urged to buy a subscrip¬ tion to our school newspaper. The work of both divisions is done by all the members of the staff and is assigned by the head. The business staff can boast of the fine work it has done this year through advertisements and subscription It had record-breaking figures in both instances — advertisers numbering 105 and subscriptions amounting to 629. Work for this staff begins almost immediately with the opening of school. Advertisements, which help give the financial support to the paper must be obtained rypedup, and placed on sheets of paper ready to go to the printer. Also subscriptions must be obtained from the students. All this work has to be completed before the first issue goes out in October, From then on, the run is slowed down to a walk. However the bills must be put out and the money received. Each month the ads ate set up on sheets of paper to go to the primer; and when the paper returns from the printer, it is the duty of the business staff to fold the papers, and to distribute them to the subscribers Then, too. compli¬ mentary papers are sent out by (his staff to every advertiser. This year football buttons were sold and help was given toward the preparation of the Sadie Hawkins Dance which is put on by the Summon Under the able assistance of Mr. Murphy and Mr. Anderson, the Simmon Business Staff has concluded a very enjoyable and successful year, Senior Class Officers President Richard Anderson Vice President Sandra Chamberlain Secretary Karen Alger Moore Treasurer Judith Kinncar Sophomore Class Officers President Vice President Secretary Treasurer W, Lewis P Herscy J.

The Senior Play, " Dear Ruth, " was the first big problem to be dis cussed. It was decided that the price was to be one dollar per person. The senior class presented the cast members with silver pins and tie clasps for their hard work. The play was a success, and a profit was made. Near to l c decided were preparations for the Christmas Cotillion, with Nat Walsh ' s orchestra. The decoration committee, under Joyce Burt, transformed the cafeteria into a fairyland palace for the dance. For the first time a Yulctidc Queen, Marilyn Mitchell, was chosen by the chaperones. The established price for the yearbook was 12AO for seniors and teachers; $3 00 for underclassmen The final choice for the size was medium. Last year ' s executive board elected Luring as a photographer for our class pictures. The pictures were taken the first week in January, and proofs were returned a week later. Actual pictures were received the first week in March. The remaining part of the year was spent discussing plans for Senior Week activities and the class reunion. This may seem early to plan a reunion, but many of our classmates won t see each other from graduation day until the reunion. JUNIOR EXECUIVE BOARD Front row: T, Roskey, S. Fgan, P.

THE SENIOR PLAY The Senior Play Reading Committee during our Junior Year selected " Dear Ruth " by Norman Krasna as the dass play to be presented in the fall of our Senior year Mr. Garnett and Miss Heagney conducted tryouts, cast the various roles, and produced the play. " Dear Ruth " is the comical talc of a high school senior, Miriam Wilkins (Karen Kugell), who writes letters during the second World War to overseas servicemen, L:, William Seawrighc f Peter Ranney), and Harold Klopbbermeycr (Richard Brown J. To these boys, Miriam sends a picture of her sister Ruth (Irene Hillis), who is engaged to a serious-minded banker, Albert Kum- mer (David Brown). The father, Harry Wilkins (Ronald Mac- Kenzie), a traffic court judge, and the one-track-minded mother, Edith Wilkins (Simone Le Roux) get mixed into the problem, while trying to straighten it out. Bill comes home to marry Ruth, and panic ensues. Along with Bill comes Sgc. Chuck Vincent (Ir¬ win Fischer), the ex-fiance of Bill ' s sister, Martha (Judy Mosman). The captivating maid, Dora (Mardell Pease) adds more comedy to an amusing play. After a few amusing incidents such as Albert getting pushed off a train, trying to determine the difference be¬ tween a closer and a bathroom, the truth is revealed. Chuck and Martha are married, and Ruth jilts Albert to marry Bill. The play was substantiated by an eager Senior class, who rose to the occasion enthusiastically to give support. Ticket sales went very well, having been boosted by a pubildty march from the Common to Natick High in the rain. The Seniors marched, armed with books, rain apparel and even a few beach umbrellas. The cast worked bard during rehearsals, but found many amusing incidents to help them over the hard spots. The cast ' s twin brothers, fortunately, weren ' t identical. Had they been, only one could have been in the play. Another comical thought was that the " acting " father of the two girb was really younger than both. The hard work was worth all the pleasure it gave the cast to help the Senior class. Mr. Harry Garnett and Miss Elizabeth Heagney, the play advisors,,worked very hard to produce the play. Without them the success of the play would have been impossible. They gave tire¬ lessly of their efforts, and gave up much of their own time tc devote to our Senior Class. 79 On Wednesday and Friday March 11, and 13 the students in the Science classes presented their projects to the public in the Gym. Unfortunately this year as last the weather kept some spectators away. However, there were many new and novel exhibits to interest old and young. Robert Olshansky, a junior, was awarded the grand prize. His project, " An Analysis of Birefringent Media under Polarized Light, " also won first prize in Chemistry. The Science Fair was sponsored by the Rotary International of Natick. SCIENCE FAIR Other first prize winners included: General Science James Mannos Biology . Beverly Hunter Advanced Biology . Ronald MacKenzie Physics ............. Gail Phillips Gail Phillips, Natick ' s third place winner in the Massachusetts State Fair held at Rockwell Cage, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, April 24 - 26. Robert Olshansky won honorable mention. For the first time in many years, and for the first time in this auditorium, the music groups under the direction of Mr Leo Bachini, assisted by Harry L. Garnett of the English Department as dramatic coach, presented a bright and sparkling musical pro¬ duction Dancing, singing and comedy captivated an enthusiastic audience and all left with the hope that more of this type entertainment would be offered by future classes, Presented on a stage that was most attractive and colorful, the performance got under way promptly at 8:15 and for the next two and one-half hours such talented artists as Patricia Harcourt, Marilyn Mitchell, Sandra Chamberlain, Nancy Hunt, Mary Pierce, Bruce Connell, David Brown, David Lehan, Peter Ranney, Simone LeRoux, Ted Nelson, Jeffrey Hass, Beverly Ward, Barbara Montgomery, and Roberta Rogers kept the audience well entertained. They were ably assisted by the well-trained choruses and dance teams. NATICK HIGH SCHOOL BAND i 1 Wi - 4, l . f .

The team built up fine spirit for their first game with a rough Norwood Club only to get the spirits and themselves dampened, and the game called off. The team finally started the season, beating a strong Walpole team 18-0. Then, with a win under their belt trounced Wellesley 64-18, and then kept roiling on, beating North Quincy 36-14, Dedham 64-16, Milton 58-6, and Needham 32-12 The team being defeated only by a slight margin when they met a powerful Braintree team 22-20 They came back strong, however, and beat Norwood 20-0. The season ended coming up against a hard fighting and highly spirited Framing¬ ham team and the Thanksgiving Day contest ended in a 6-6 tie. The team was very ably led by Captain Dean Webb. Jerry Hall, Bruce Peterson, and Brad Leavitt along with Captain Webb made up an efficient back fie Id. The line was 93 94 constantly sparked on by brilliant play from John Stevens, Vito Capizzo, Lynn Bartley, Jim Fallon, and Dick Wells, juniors Morris Wilson, Captain elect for 1959, and John Hayes were regulars in the line also. One of the reasons Natick had a winning team was there was always someone ready to take over any position. Senior Christy Adams saw a lot of defensive action and other senior linemen Charles Winterson, James Brad¬ ford, Dave Hughes, and John Woish were always available. Herb Mingace, another senior, Walter Hriniak, John McGilvary, Tim Donovan, and Ralph Doran were used a lot in the baclcfield. Natick was high scorer for Massachusetts with 318 points and Jerry Hall was one of the state leaders with 110 points. John Dowst and Richard Powers were the capable and hard working senior managers. 95 VARSJTY BASKETBALL Front row: A. Ross, J. Stevens, A. Loane, K. Wells, R. Anderson, T. Argir. Second row: Coach F.

The team, which was picked by the experts to finish sixth in the league, surprised all by winning the Bay State League title. On the way to the laurels they defeated our arch-rival, Framingham, twice, losing only three games all season. All three were close games, and rhe season ended with an overwhelming victory over the Bay State League allstars. This year’s team lacked height, but w F on over bigger teams with their tremendous spirit and hustle. They succeeded in qualifying for the Tech Tourney, having one of the better records in Class B. Because of this Natick drew a first round in the quarter finals, 96 JV BASKETBALL Front row: G. Palli, D. Leone, L. Dnhertv. W. Bell, Second row: Coach Charles Chrsri, G. Layton, D. Zlcko, S.

Alan Loane and Richard Wells did outstanding jobs as co-captains in leading their ream to victory. Loane, one of the smaller players in size but not in ability, pleased many crowds with his all-around basketball ability and Dick Wells, one of the highest scorers in Natick history, led the Bay State League in scoring. Richard Anderson, Natick ' s tallest player was a dependable rebounder. John Stevens ' continuous hustle was beneficial to the ream, and he scored several baskets at climatic moments, Thomas Argir, the only junior on the team, added scoring punch. To back up a good team Coach Carey bad a good bench led by Allan Ross and Joseph Fahey, supported by Bruce Peterson, Lee Richards and Richard Soby. The passing of Len Megliola and Paul Sapanaro baffled many opponents. 97 te ' kj i m |v 14 1 C V €A HIM — INDOOR TRACK Front row: R. Voner T K. Barnes, B r Leavitt, L Bartley, K. Poole, H, Jones , R.

If they had scored nine points more during the season, they might have been un¬ defeated. In the Stare Meet they finished in a tie for fourth place. This team, with such mainstays as Captain Jones in the 600, Lynn Bartley in the shot put, Herb Mingaee in the 50 yd, dash, Dick Wright and Paul Calla¬ han in the hurdles, looked good from the start. The underclassmen Porter, Kolman, Walker, Winner, Frazee, Santa Maria and a host of other hard workers will be out in force to keep up the good reputation established by this year’s group. rrtfi ilih m VARSITY HOCKEY Front row: D, McGee V, Capizzo R, Curtis, J, Hall, D.

HOCKEY This year ' s hockey team, captained by Vito Capiz- so, won the Eastern Mass, League title, the second title to come to Natick in two years. Since this is the last year the league will exist we are especially proud of our title. From now on Natick will be playing with the Bay State League. The victory of this year s team came as a surprise to many who felt that Natick ' s ice prowess had ended. With a fine group of veterans like Capizzo, Webb, and Mabardy Natick had one of the best defensive lines in school boy hockey, ferr y Hall Danny McGee and Ron Curtis were other seniors who turned in a fine performance, Natick’s only loss was a IT) decision to Wake¬ field early in the season. This was one of the finest- played games of the season. In the State Tournament Natick defeated a strong Lynn English team 3 to 2. In the quarter finals we lost to a very strong Belmont team. With Gilbert, Hriniack, Pessini, Capizzo and Lin¬ ton returning Natick has the nucleus of another fine team. 101 102 t ffl fj jrvyg f ' - If 1 niyy yv 1 j vi mr If )y tiff.

Bob Carroll and Dave Winner in the tOO yard dash and the 220 yard dash respectively, Dick Wright, a seni¬ or has been a dependable point scorer in the 440 and George Williams in the 220. In the field events the team had an excellent trio of veterans, Dick Anderson, Lynn Bartley, Steve Higgins, Gary Whitten, and Captain- elect Paul Kolman. After suffering defeats from Needham and Braintree, the team bounced back to defeat the remainder of their opponents. The outlook for next year is bright because of the many underclassmen coming up.

WELCOME — CLASS DAY Parents, Teachers, and Friends: It is with pleasure that we welcome you to Natick High School and these Commencement Excercises, We wish to thank our parents, our teachers, and all those who have helped us attain our goal, our graduation from high school. You have completed your part; it re¬ mains for us to do ours. We must use this education wisely. We are confident that with your continued support we shall become progres¬ sive, responsible adults. IT6 BUSINESS AWARDS INDUSTRIAL ARTS AWARD We, the class of 1959, have come to the end of our high school education. Before we leave these hallowed halls, let us review our four years at Natick High School Beginning with our freshman year wc have always looked for students with qualities of leadership and responsibility for our class officers through the exciting, but serious business of campaigns and elections, Wc chose Richard Anderson, President; Julie Hersey, Vice President; Joanna Drowne, Secretary; and Tommy Siegel, Treasurer. We also elected our first Executive Board which was under the able leadership of our class advisors, Mrs, Gray and Mr. Colombo. As sophomores, we chose as our leaders, Allen Lottie, President; John Stevens, Vice President; Karen Kugdl, Secretary; and Judy Kinnear, Treasurer. Our junior class officers were Karen Moore, Nancy Sullivan, and Judy Kinnear. Wc realized the important responsibil ices which our senior class officers would have and chose rhem wisely. When the ballots were counted, we had elected Richard Anderson, President; Sandra Chamberlain, Vice President; Karen Moore, Secretary; and Judy Kinnear, Treasurer. Throughour our four years at Natick High our athletic teams have continued Natick s reputation as " the Home of Champions. " Our freshman teams were very successful and showed great promise for the future. In our sophomore and jun¬ ior years our boys played on the various junior varsity teams and helped them on to victorious seasons. The athletic accomplish¬ ments of our boys as seniors w ' erc many. The football team, under the direction of Coach Bennett and Captain Dean Webb enjoyed a successful season w ith only one loss and one tie. The basketball team, coached by Mr Carey and captained by Allen Loane and Dick Wells, was one of the shortest in the league. Nevertheless, it won the Bay State League Championship and went on to play in the Tech Tourney. The hockey team, under Coach Bell and Captain Vito Capizzo, won the Eastern Massachusetrs League Championship and went on to further competition in the Stare Tournament, Our track, baseball, tennis, and golf teams also worked very hard, and their victorious seasons were a credit to the school. The teams were helped on to victory by our talented and ambitious cheerleaders, captained by Jean Ghilani. The scholastic achievements of members of our class have been as outstanding as our athletic achievements. In May of our junior year Geoffrey Be I isle, David Brown, Patricia Harcourr, Irene Hillis, Nancy Hunt, Judy Kinnear, Elizabeth Lee, Alice Martin, Mary Pierce, Miry Purcell, Robert Robinson, Harold Wright, and Ann Stewart were elected to the National Honor Society. This is the largest group of juniors that has ever been elected. Two more groups of students were elected to the Honor Society as seniors. Nancy Hunt and Robert Robinson were finalists in the National Merit Scholarship examination, and Nancy Hunt, Mary Purcell, and Robert Robinson reached the finals in the examination for the National Honor Society Scholarships. Robert Robinson brought honors to our school and to our class by being one of the forty wioners from all over the country in the Wesringhouse Science Talent Search. Members of our class have won many awards at Science Fairs, In our junior year Karen Alice Moore and David Dhan won first prizes at our fair and went on to win prizes at the Massachusetts State Science Fair. Gail Phillips also went on to further competition in the Worcester Regional Fair. As seniors, Karen Alice Moore, Bunky Hunter, and Bruce Schcrnig partici¬ pated in the Worcester Regional Fair. Gail Phillips and Ronald MacKcnzie went on to the Massachusetts Stare Science Fair after w inning first prizes at our fain The social activities which wt have sponsored have been successful and unforgettable affairs. Our sophomore dance was a Spring Carnival at which Karen Moore was chosen carnival queen. During our junior year months of planning went into the Junior Prom-Senior Reception, The theme was " Seventh Heaven, " and the many elaborate decorations included a golden gate and a rainbow with a por of gold. As seniors we held the traditional Christmas Cotillion, We decided to establish the custom of crown¬ ing a queen of the cotillion, and our class was honored when Marilyn Mitchell was selected Yuletide Queen. The dramatic presentations in which we have participated have been as successful as our social activities. Tryouts for the Senior Play, " Dear Ruth " began early in our senior year. The cast, including . . Irene Hillis, Ronald MacKenzie, Simone Le- Roux, Karen Kugdl, Peter Ranney, Judith Mosman.lrw ' in Fischer, Mardell Pease, David Brown,, and Richard Brown, was finally selected and began long hours of rehearsal under the direction of Mr. Garnett and Miss Heagncy. The class got behind " Dear Ruth” when about one hundred and fifty of us paraded with umbrellas from the Common to the school to advertize the play. When Dear Ruth " was presented in November, the praise was un¬ animous. Without a doubt our Senior Play was the most hilarious one ever presented at Natick High School. In March of our Senior year many of us participated in Natick High’s first musical comedy, " The Colonel Comes to Kansas. " Members of our class in the musical included: Marilyn Mitchell, Barbara Montgomery, Nancy Hunt, Mary Pierce, Sandra Chamber¬ lain, Roberta Rogers, David Brown, David Lehan, Beverly Ward, Patricia Harcourr, Peter RanncyThis new f and different type of entertainment w r as well received by everyone. During our junior and senior years several outstanding mem¬ bers of our class were chosen for special honors. Peggy Kilroy w r as elected to represent us at Girls ' State, and George Williams and Richard Anderson were chosen to be our delegates to Boys ' State. The D. A. R Good Citizenship Award was won by Sandra Chambdain, and Vito Opizzo was chosen ro receive the Brother- hood Award. Our Good Government Committee, headed by Richard Anderson included Peggy Kilroy, Allen Loane, Vito Capizzo, James McOosky. Our high school years are drawing to a close. With the passage of the long-awaited Senior Week we approach the most important event in our lives thus far — our high school gradua¬ tion. We are going on to further education, to the business world, or to make our own homes, but we shall never forget our four years at Natick High SchcxjJ. CLASS PROPHECY By NANCY HUNT, MARY PIERCE AND DAVID BROWN " Yes, it was tragic. He was only two years old, you know. She ' s really broken-hearted. Oh! Excuse me. We didn ' t mean to leave you in the dark. You see, one of the most famous zoologists, Nancy Hunt, has just lost her dearest possession, her pet platypus We, David Brown, Nancy ' s psychoanalyse, and Mary Pierce, her chief chemist in search for the " Philosopher ' s Stone " , are letting Nancy write about a trip she is going to take ro attempt to fill the abyss left by her pec s untimely depar¬ ture ' Boston, hub of New England, is the center of an and learning in the northeastern part of the United States. As such, I feel it is a good place to start an extensive trip in search for a lost part of my heart. The business district first caught our interest (Tm traveling with two very dear friends) and whom do we discover but an old school friend, Richard Casaly, now president of the John Hancock Insurance Company, His private secretary, Judy Buckler, knowing of my condition, very kindly gave us three tickets to the ballet starring the world famous, Debra Greenberg. On the way to the ballet, w r e have a slight accident with a taxi driven by former racer, Kevin Keane. His passengers are none other than the stars of the opera for this evening, Marilyn Anderson and Andy Parker (they ' ve changed their names, of course.) Since there is some damage from the crash, we have to have some minor repairs. The mechanics in Ray ' s Garage (Ray Kent, that is) are Richard Reynolds and Fred Munro. Fred says that Madeline Barnide, is now a hair stylist in Jane Hammond s exclusive beauty salon, Jane ' s three other stylists are Gloria Jones, Lois Cohen, and the fabulous Ken Barnes, made famous by his " flying swoop " creation. Oh! The car is ready! Well, off to the ballet! We finally reach the theater without any more detours, and, fortunately, we are not late. Look, there ' s Ronald Zicko! He’s an usher. Here comes Richard Wright. Is he going to talk to us? Yes. He tells us that he is now the president of the Write Right Pen Company, and his vice president is Robert Thompson We can t talk long; the ballet is about to start . . What? Intermission already? There ' s Barb Simons. You know, she teaches the second grade in the same school where Cathy Quirk teaches music. Funny, a lot of the girls have become teachers. Peggy Trundy, Mary Knowles, and Janice Wignot teach high school, and Cynthia Wilburger, Suzanne Winner, Margaret Stromberg, Virginia Brown, Judy Malone, and Pat Kirby teach the elementary grades. Some of the boys became gym teachers: Robert Shaffer, Daniel Beliefontaine, Dan Campbell, and Clifford Stone. I never would have thought it. Oh, intermission is over . . . Well, last night was lovely. Debbie certainly has made a name for herself. Now we are on our way to the world amateur tennis championship matches where both Frank Hess and Joe Vay are trying for the cup. Were caking the bus because we are still a little shaken up over our accident last night. Say, isn ' t our bus driver Frank Walton? Oh, here we are. What a crowd! Look, there are three empty seats beside . . Judy Davis, world famous Chinese auctioneer, and Natalie Fernald, vice president of the Fernald Furnace Company ( her father is still president). Two rows behind us are a small group of WAVE ' S, Sheila Sulli¬ van, Anna Thompson, Mary Travaglini, Jane Roberts, Helen McLaughlin, and Jean Tessier. My. haven’t they got chic uni¬ forms. We heard today that Richard Anderson is in Boston on his presidential campaign. His chief engineer (train, that is) is Ronald Savilonis whose right-hand man is George Westcott. With him are traveling the candidates for Secretary of State, Paul Saponaro; Secretary of Defense, Kenneth Sheldon; and the recently-elected Governor of Massachusetts, Robert Wallace. Thomas Young, campaign manager, asks us if we would like to go along on the campaign. Naturally, we accept and begin following Richard Anderson on his cross-country campaign for the presidency of the State of Happiness. Traveling with him is his publicity agent, Gretchen Polhemus. Famed meterolo- gists, Barry Anderson and David Lehan, travel with the train to predict the weather so candidate Anderson ' s wife will not ruin her new hat. Commencing his whistle-stop campaign in Boston, he is greeted by crowds of old friends — among them Tim Anderson, Harvard University Professor of Comparative Analysis; Dr. Robert Robinson, research physicist; Marcia Burke, Olympic ski champ; Sandy Chamberlain, head nurse at Mass. General; John Dowse, Vice president of Liberty Mutual; Robert Franciose, builder of the new Boston sewer system; Diane Montgomery, banker; James Pickering, manufacturer of Guber Pickles; A Ido Pagliarulo, vice president of Slumberland Matress Company; and Janet Murphy, his secretary. His next stop is Natick, the old home town. From the high school come Sandra Skeans, math teacher, and Ann Phin- ney, gym instructor. Carol Savilonis, secretary to the principal, brings his felicitations. Ronald Muise, director of the B. B. Band, meets him at the station. Richard Nelson, car salesman, lends Dick a Cadillac for rhe day. He visits the Friendly Grill to pass out campaign stickers to Sheldon Langmead, Leonard Megliola, John Wall, Peter Bell, and Ronald Curtis. Traveling westward, the Anderson train reaches New York. While touring the city, we find Karen Kugell, outfitted with beret and pink poodle, the newly-elected mayor of Green¬ wich Village; Charles Jones, top-notch sportscaster drops in on his way to Florida to report on spring training. Jim Andrews comes to call —■ w r e notice that he has come up in the world — he is now Police Chief of New York City. Dick stops at the French Embassy to sec Mary Purcell, and hears that Dave Buckingham, gentleman farmer from Virginia, has just left for Paris We visit the Bronx gym and find Tom Balducci refer¬ eeing a wrestling match, Jim Fallon lifting weights, and Russell Barber taking a steam bath. That evening, we decided to patronize the arts. At the opera, June Breda is performing; Diana Uhl in is dancing at Carnegie Hall; Barbara Montgomery is playing a concert in Town Hall; Pete Ranney stars in another picture at the Roxy where he gets all the girls. We choose the theater, and there we see fashionable Peggy Burt, wife of the governor of New York. Leaving the theater, we nearly knock the top hat off the head of Boyd Edmonston, U S Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Boyd tells us that tomorrow he leaves for a diplomatic tour of Western Europe, He invites us to accompany him. We accept After saying goodby to rhe folks back home via Vito Capizzos Early Morning Show, T. V. of course, we proceed to Idlewild Imagine our surprise when we realized that our lovely stewardess is none other than Linda Bremner, and that our pilot is Ken Poole, whom we remember for his earlier dy¬ ing. 119 PROPHECY — can tinned Across the aisle and down two sears we recognize Pat Hubbard, the well-known fashion model. Pat tells us she is traveling to Paris to see Kris Kerr, world famous couttiriere. Our flight is relatively uneventful. Boyd is met in London by Harold Rocy, expert on Russian affairs, and Irwin Fischer of the foreign service, who will serve as Boyd’s advisors. We bid the three a hasty good-by and nearly run smack into Don Bergonzone, Paul Callahan, Jim (Bub) Condlin, and Dick Donovan who all look like generals in their service uni¬ forms. As we tour London, we see the sign of Richard Brown, CP. A, Down by the Thames, Paul " Smily” Rogers is fishing from London Bridge. Looking up, we notice Alfred Byrnes repairing Big Ben. Sea captain Steve Cramp ton guides his ship toward the Channel. We’re almost late for our ride. The crossing is fine, and, much to our pleasure, we discover Sandy Buswell, secretary to the Parisian exporter, returning from an errand which took her to England. We arrive in Paris in time to use the tickets Boyd gave us to see Pat Harcourt, who teaches in a French elementary school in the daytime, dance at the Folics Bergere. Afterwards, we scop for a four course snack at Chez Simone (restaurant of the inimitable Simone LeRoux). There we see Keith Gould, Lynn Bartley, and Harold Wright stuffing themselves with goodies francais. Jim Teague, famous hot-rodder, has retired to the position of Paris taxi driver. Since we recognize him, wc give him an extra big tip. Bright and early the next morning, we leave by train for Geneva, Switzerland, home of exiles and anarchists. Rod Wal¬ lace, famous philosopher, greets us at the station. He tells us of an international ski meet near Geneva, in which Bruce Schernig and Dick Halberg are favorites to win prizes. An ex¬ citing moment comes when Pat Arena falls down the ski slope and Alvin MacKenzie, doctor who vacations yearly in Geneva, rushes to her assistance. Jim Bradford, American advisor to the Swiss Navy, put in an appearance at the ski meet and Wes Peoples, sports car designer, showed up for a while. Dick " Pug " Powers came running up, out of breath, waving his world champion ' s poker trophy and green eye shade. Dick has taken time from his busy schedule at Cal Tech as a theorectical mathematician. We ask him to join us on a jaunt to Italy. He agrees; on condition that we travel back to California with him. On the flight to Rome, Gloria Brown is our hospitable hostess. At the airport, we are met by John Calzini, customs agent. First of all we are hungry, so we go to Fierro ' s Pizza Place, and who feeds us bur Cyn and Gige. Frank Indelicate is a waiter, while Laura Sanborn is a waitress Strolling through St. Peters square, we see Diane Campisi, designer, and her models, Linda Torti and Toni McKeen, followed by Dick Soby, w f orld famous casanova. We find that Carol Belle farm has invented several new devices: one for drilling holes in macaroni and another for twisting spagetti. After earing our fill, Pug shepherds us onto a California- bound jet clipper, and in no time we arrived at San Francisco. First thing we hear from Dick Wells is that he is playing base¬ ball for the San Francisco Giants. He introduces us to an old friend, Christy Adams, an elementary school gym instructor. At a baseball game, blushing Brad Leavitt, first baseman for the Milwaukee Braves, wavs to us from the infield. Sitting in boxes near ours, we spy Jeff Bel isle, educational advisor to the governor of California, and sports reporter, Dick Cox, Traveling towards China Tow r n, we pass a building with a sign which exhibits a familiar name — Danny McGee, lawyer. On leave from the Navy in China Town, we see ad- mi ral-of-rhe-fleet, Charles LePage, and crew, Lee Curtis, Paul Kelly, Dennis Lawless, and Richard Voner. Anthony " Butch " Strom berg, barber to the scars, Dean Webb, coach of the San Francisco ’49 ers, and George Wil¬ liams, president of Columbia Pictures, are some of the celebri¬ ties we meet in San Francisco. George invites us to visit his studios in Hollywood. There wc meet Maureen Bliss, wardrobe mistress for many famous actresses, Kathy Owens, and Kathy O ' Brien, make-up directors for Columbia Studios, and Mardell Pease, character actress. Wandering through a set for the musical " The Colonel Comes to Kansas” (which they finally took to Hollywood), we meet Dick Stanley, camera man, and Marilyn Mitchell, who was asked to star in the movie as well as the stage play. Allen Ross portrays the genial farm hand. Lorraine Mitchell and Bev Long design sets for the production. We pay one last vine to Pug at Cal Tech. There we find Jim Walters, consultant to business firms bothered by smog, and Russ Whittemore, electrical engineer. Saying good-by to Pug, we leave for Detroit, to purchase a new car. Leslie Davis, secretary to John Boyington, president of General Motors, takes us for a spin in a new ' 84 Cadillac We nearly run over John Soule and Ronald Therieau, firemen in a hurry. Back at the showroom, Ray Stackpole and Ralph Williams tune up the car for the next customer. John Woish has an establishment down the street — The Woish ing Car Wash. Wc imagine he must make a mint. For entertainment that evening, we attend the Detroit Tigers baseball game to see Hallect " Scoop " Jones pitch. We hear that John Stevens is playing football for the Detroit Lions Natick has enriched the sports world by giving it additional champions. To the nursing profession, Natick has made many contri¬ butions: Lynn Woods, Jean Holland, Irene Hillis, Ann Bryan, Mary Grady, Lorraiyn Sellar, Marie Raftery, and Judy Hicks, Alice Ward, lab technician, assies Bill Hawkes, a naturalist at the University of Michigan. We hear that at the Great Lakes Army Base there are Doug Dunn, Charlie Fritz, Bill Gour, Peter Horning, John Kenney, and Roland Morris. Driving back towards Boston, we stop at Monmouth, Illinois, where we find Ann Stewart busily administrating af¬ fairs at her alma mater. In a nearby community, Nancy Sulli¬ van teaches school. After spending two wonderful days in Monmouth, we leave once more. In Philadelphia, we stop in at the American Bandstand show to see that famous disc jockey, Joe Fahey. The show is quite exciting, especially when the biggest singing group in the nation drop in to sing their latest hit " Sunset on Sturn " . The group consists of Pat Morgan, Linda Lee, Charlene Pink ham, Carol Hackert, and Judy Mosman, We spend the evening at the beautiful Macabo where the fabulous comedian Robert Roth is breaking all records. We understand his mana¬ gers Charlie Winterson and Bill Whelan are having a hard time keeping night club owners away — everyone wants Bob. The trip from Philadelphia to New York took only a few hours, and vve finally arrive in New ' York City. The town has been buzzing about the great ncw r hit comedy by Fred Rogers entitled ' Who Has To Be Shot " adapted from Vladimick Licnes last hook " What Has To Be Done " . The part of Vladimick is played by Larry McCarthy who does a superb job After the show, we rushed back stage to meet the cast and we find that the director of the play was none other than Jim Me 120 PROPHECY — continued Cfosky, publicity was handled by Anne Hassard. We learned that Jim has just returned from Hollywood where he directed the Academy Award winner, ' You Bet You Owe Me Money " , starring the wonderful Mary Morrill and Dick Lofgren. After pushing our way out of the theater, we decide to see the New York Ranger-Boston Bruin Hockey game. Jim Linton, we hear, is the outstanding scorer and Jerry Hall is making the headlines as one of the great defensemen in the league. The morning following the hockey game, we go sight¬ seeing. The windows at Macy ' s are beautifully decorated and there in the window, adding a few last touches, is Donna Pryor. Her boss, Bruce Peterson, motions for us to come in and shows us through his office. His two private secretaries, Eileen O ' Con¬ nell and Diane Dixon, wave to us as we go by. We manage to see the spring fashion show before we leave and there is the beautiful Carol Bcllefontaine modeling a new r Edwma Mallek suit. The vice president of Macy’s Judy Kinnear, invites us to lunch at the exclusive restaurant run by Virginia Hines. After a scrumptious French meal, we leave for the Ncw r York Museum of Art, A wonderful demonstra¬ tion by the internationally known artist, Gail Phillips, was going on. At the museum, we see two of the great automobile men in the nation, Ronald (General Motors) Harlow ' and his assistant vice president, David Hughes. As we are going out, we see a crowd around some person. Yes, why it ' s Barbara Ligon, the great Metropolitan Opera Star! Watch out, Mary, oh — no! She trips over a roller skate. We take her to Mercy General Hospital. She is well cared for by nurses Stephanie Martin and Elizabeth Lee. After a few hours we leave the hospital for New- York University to hear a lecture by the prominent economist Robert Graham. On our way through the math wing of the university, we see professor Peggy Kilroy giving a l ecru re in trigonometry. In the next room Dr. Karen Alice Moore is teaching a class in in tegral calculus. We learn from Dr. Moore that the faculty chief gym instructor at the women ' s school is Beverly " Bunky " Hunter, The president of the university, Herbert Mingace, show ' s us the laboratory and who do you think is giving a lecture? Dr. Ronald Oldfield. From New York University, we go to IdlewiId airport for our plane to Boston. Flight 810 for Boston is ready to take off. We have to hurry! The pilot for our flight is William Egan, and co-pilot is Bill Curtis. We talk over old times with them and then board the plane. The stewardess Carol Hawkins sees to it that we fasten our safety belts, and — we are off. Sitting behind us are three favorite singers of the day, Georgene Knott, Doris Henry, and Janice Bitzer. They tell us that business is wonderful. While they were appearing in Florida, they heard that Allen Loane and Lee Ric hards were showing the baseball world what good rookies could do. We arc shown around the plane and learn that our navi¬ gator is Phil Rierdan, and the chef is Warren Mason. As we move back to our seats, we recognize Joe McDonald, the famous jockey. He is going to be in the Kentucky Derby this year. Music begins to flow over the P. A. system and we recognize Karen Alger Moore. She was voted the most popular women singer last year. In the fronr scat we discovered a great actress of the day, Roberta Rogers. She told us to watch for a new movie ’When the Chips Are Down " starring Cynthia Paul. It is a satire on Las Vegas gambling. She also rold us to watch out for a new star Pat McGosky who is making her debut in the picture. Right behind Roberta, w r e see Karen Loomis who is the head buyer for Jordan Marsh. She is sitting with her asistant; Beverly Clark. They are returning from a trip to San Francisco where they vied for a contract with a number of companies, one of which was Gilchrist’s of Texas. Paul Gilchrist is the president down there and his vice president, Susan Johnson. Chief dress designer is Carol Coan. We hear on the radio that a fire has broken out in Hart¬ ford, Conn.

They cell us they are going to Boston for the New ' England Conference for the Prevention of Crime, The president of the conference is Ed Lumbard. We chat for a w ' hile and then sec the blue light on the John Hancock Build¬ ing. We are home!!! My goodness — I must try to get a new r Platypus. 12 ? ESSAY in America, when we rhmk of education, we usually think of a preparation for a career, attending school for a certain length of time, and doing the prescribed assign¬ ments. The important part of education, however, is not the body of knowledge one attains, but how one learns to think about this body of know ledge. A man who is well educated in the narrow sense of the word, and has a large store of knowledge at his disposal, cannot use his kunowledge if he does not know ' how to think. He is no more useful than a tape recorder. The ability to think constructively involves relating one ' s know¬ ledge to the events and situations that occur around him. The thinking individual is the only truly creative indi¬ vidual. Only a truly creative individual can contribute any¬ thing new, even in the context of older methods or ideas. Also, one must be able to think creatively in order to live, rather than merely exist. One can exist with a certain amount of food, water, air, and shelter. To live, however, one must be alert to what is around him. One must look deeper into his surroundings than a camera can, and try to understand what is going on. Thinking is an ability that comes only with long prac¬ tice, It is an ability which needs to be encouraged by an individual ' s parents, teachers, and society, and by the indi¬ vidual himself. Education is not, 1 think, supported enough by the public. Too many people score the man who teaches, reads, enjoys learning. In America there is no widespread respect for the well-educated individual, no generally recognized place in society for him. There is no general love of knowledge for the sake of knowledge, rather than for the sake of results. Many parents arc less interested in what their sons and daughters have learned in school than in what grades they received. Also, the public has no desire to understand a thing once it can be controlled. Not many people are curious aboun how their car battery works, as long as it starts the car in the morning. Atomic weapons, on the other hand, are a good ex¬ ample of an invention which we think we control, because we can produce it. Our control is only superficial, however, because not enough people understand the implications of their use. Atomic weapons stand as a threat to the whole of society, because of the ignorance of a great part of society. The present shortage of scientists and technicians is an excellent example of popular misconception of education. The U. S. has never been outstanding in the field of basic research. We have had good engineers, though we need more right now, but the emphasis on practicality has kept our contribution in pure science to a minimum. Most of the (Hitstanding figures in basic research, even recently, have been from Europe. Now we find ourselves in a struggle with the U, S. $, R. to produce our own science. Recently a lag in technology; in the field of missiles, brought public attention to bear on the need for more scien¬ tists. There is a clamor for quick results which betrays the ignorance on the part of the public of the nature of the problem. First of all, what is needed are creative scientists, who can produce new things and new ideas. A creative scientist must have an environment conducive to creative activity, A love of knowledge for its own sake, and a definite respect for good scientists and for g(x)d artists art parts of the ideal environment. The demand for quick results is self-defeating. If only those aspects of education and research which promise quick returns are supported, no work will be done on new ideas. To be new p , an idea must be unknown; its potential value is of necessity unknown until it is investigated. The unknown must be investigated if there is to be progress. Learning to think is as important to the scientist’s ability to produce useful results as it is to any man ' s ability to live. One of the things that distinguishes a creative scientist from a technician is that the technician can be produced by the American method of mass production if necessary. Russia has exhibited the possibility of such a course quite graphically. A creative scientist, on the other hand, must have the proper general atmosphere. The sub- jeer matter of the education of a successful scientist does not by any means consist entirely of mathematics and the science of his concentration.. The most productive scientists are, in fact, those who have had extensive contact w ith the humanities. A thinker cannot consider only a part of his environment in isolation from rite rest. A thinker musr consider the whole environment. A scientist cannot be familiar only with his specialty or his thinking will lack scope. An artist cannot be totally ignorant of science, or his art will lack the force of being based on reality. To be a true thinker, the scientist, the artist, the states¬ man, the businessman, must be aware of what is being done in areas seemingly unrelated to his individual interests. Our educational system must produce men competent in their own fields, and at the same rime more of the broad context which makes their work meaningful Robert Robinson 122 CLASS WILL By MARCIA BURKE We, the illustrious Class of 1959, whose world-shaking accomplishments, unsurpassed spirit, and renowned scholas¬ tic achievements unquestionably make us the most distin¬ guished class ever to graduate from Natick High, do leave this our Last Will and Testament. To Mr. Hennigar and Mr. Barrnick, we leave our hearty congratulations for having most successfully com¬ pleted their first year as our new principal and vice-principal.

Signed: Marcia Burke Witnessed by: Harry L Garnett 124 FAREWELL ADDRESS By HAROLD WRIGHT FAREWELL ADDRESS — 1959 Perhaps more than at any time in recent history, the nationwide class of 1959 has been affected by the trend of world affairs. With the advent of many striking scientific advances in recent years, such as the satellite programs re¬ sulting in the first " Sputnik " in early October, 1957, the United States was shocked into a rapid re-evaluation of its educational system. There have been a number of important changes made on national, state, and local levels which have had, and will continue to have marked effect on the students. There have been many changes recommended for the improvement of secondary schools. Dr. James B. Conant, former president of Harvard University, has published a report on the condition of our high schools which points out many of the shortcomings of some American high schools and the time-tested, effective methods some schools have employed in improving various courses. Dr. Conant feels that a science course in either physical science or biology should be required of all students in either the ninth or tenth grades. This required course would be divided into three sections of varying difficulty and students would be grouped according to ability. Then two courses should be offered in both physics and chemistry; one course in each for the student who desires a working knowledge of the subject only, the other for the student with the mathematical ability to further his study of the subjects. In the Humanities Dr Conant recommends that there should be several courses. He has found the need for four years of English and either three or four years of social studies, including two years of history and a course in American problems and government for seniors. In the elective Humanities he feels there should be four-year foreign language sequences offered in all schools, since students cannot acquire mastery of any foreign language in two years. He recommends that all students should include art and music in their electives for a broader cultural background. How is Natick meeting these recommendations? To help the student choose the courses best suited to his needs and capabilities we have a good counselling program, with one full-time counsellor for every three hundred students. The counsellor consults with students and parents in help¬ ing select sequences of subjects, required and elective, that are best suited to the interests and abilities of the individual concerned. In addition participation in extra curricular activities is encouraged. Our school is experimenting with new courses and methods of instruction. This year, for the first time, 138 high schools in Massachusetts, including Natick High participated a course in the Humanities, a series of television presentations for the junior College English classes. This program was correlated with the regular English, History, and Art programs. Many students were enrolled in a new- type physics course, recommended by the Physical Science Study Committee. The Social Studies program includes a course in Inter¬ national Relations, an elective which many high schools feel is too advanced for their students. Natick also provides extended language courses in Latin, French, and Spanish. The elective sequences in business training, industrial arts and mathematics enhance the " marketable skill " of these students. in addition to prescribed courses a wide variety of courses may be offered in a school as large as ours These cover a broad range for the gifted as well as the average student. When courses are integrated and adapted to the needs of the individual students through the efforts of counsellors, students who graduate from Natick usually have a definite goal, Natick High graduates have, for the most part, been very successful. They are proud of the education they have received here. The constant changes and improvements in curriculum, in reaching methods, and in student interest will keep our school in the lead. We fee) the Class of 1959, like those who have gone before, will be most successful. Harold Wright 125 GIRLS ' TENNIS Front row: D. Mathews, A. Stewart, M. Donley, P. Miller Back row: G, French, B.
