Sassamon NATICK HIGH SCHOOL Natick Massachusetts BIOGRAPHY OF A MOON In the beginning there was God And the mindless universe; Stars, sun, earth, and moon In a starry womb. Before His image, The goal in gestation Grew life, and the pale pilgrimage To death was thawed In the thoughtless tomb ... Thoughtless until The creation. And The creation was man, And through him the body and soul Of the universe was born; Born in an awareness, born Through the mind’s misty passage Until all that glittered was goal. The moon, born brightest In the conscious night, Celebrates its birth In a savage scene: Fire from the chanting caves Spears the night in eerie waves • While grunting fathers sing the moon e In superstition’s frightened tune ... Behind the eyes The winds of time Blow shadows from the blood; The soul sheds its chains And rages through the brain; All flesh spouts fire And fuses cells in one desire: The sacrifice of night to mind. One man dies But the race survives And grows young. The moon, one life, grows old With logic for wrinkles And a disease called Man: The contagious disease which Leaves its victims cold In the mind and dead: Thought be the universe And Man its hearse.

The officers of the Council were: Steven Haskell, President; Morris Wilson, Vice-President; and Alvena Ortenzi, Secretary. The highlight of the year’s activities occurred when the Council acted as host for the Annual Fall Convention of the Eastern Maaaschusetts Association of Student Councils. Fifty-seven schools attended the all-day conference which dealt with the common problems confronting student councils. Excellent entertainment for the attending councils was provided by the A Capella chorus and the Dance Band. The Council sponsored two dances during the year. The first, the Welcome Dance, was held in early October. The second, the Football Dance, was held in December. At this dance the student body paid COUNCIL homage to our undefeated football team. The Council elected Stephen Higgins as its representative for the Jewish War Veterans Award, an award given to the person who best exemplifies the statement: "Classmate Today, Neighbor Tomorrow." Other actions taken by the Council were to revise the Red and Blue Handbook in relation to the ethics of dress which had been drawn up last year, to clarify the eligibility rules for membership, to sponsor various assemblies throughout the school year, to keep the school bulletin board up to date, to serve as guides on the two parent’s nights, and to elect ten cheerleaders for the 1960-61 seasons. The Council considered the establishment of a permanent scholarship for a worthy senior. This plan would be put into effect when sufficient funds for this purpose arc made available. 21a JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS Seated E. Hopf, P. Hersey, C. Lindquist. Standing: W. Lewis.

Credit for most of the news articles, literary contributions, and features goes to the staff members and especially to the editors who skillfully planned and organized each issue. Special thanks goes to Mrs. George Edmonds and Miss Joan Pa in ton of the English Department, who patiently served as the Sassamon advisors. Peter Garland was the editor-in-chief anil Robert Olshansky was the chief errand runner (assistant to the editor). Celia Biagetti. a veteran reporter, was the news editor and had the responsibility of organizing the front page of each issue. Such columns as the Personality Box. International Byline, Quips and Quecries. and other entertaining articles were written by "Skip DcMelle. the feature editor, and his staff. The literary department under the guidance of Valerie Alexander produced many interesting stories and poems. Complete coverage of all sporting events was the result of the efforts of a single person. Sports Editor Bunny" Ortenzi. Linda Hayward put together the exchange column, which consisted of interesting features from other school newspapers. Thanks also goes to Betty Holloway, staff photographer. Jimmy Hayes, staff cartoonist, and to all other contributors and supporters. Because of the tremendous effort of the literary staff and the splendid cooperation of the faculty and student body, the Sassamon of 1959-1960 has set new and high standards for future years SASSAMON BUSINESS STAFFYEARBOOK ART COMMITTEE First Row I hi.la Kannc-I, FI label h Holloway.

Collins What is the Sassamon Business Staff? Many students who know little or nothing about this group could be a part of the staff. This organization is in charge of revenue. Main sources from which money for the paper is obtained are ads from the local merchants and subscriptions from the student body. Some income will also come from a dance which is to be- held in May. From this money the printer must be paid and all other expenses involved in printing and issuing a paper must be met. There is a sizable sum of expenses as our Sassamon comes out 8 times a year The Business Staff is divided into three groups, the advertising group, the subscription group, and the bookkeeping group and each group has its manager. The business staff covers subscriptions from students and advertisements from merchants. Bookkeepers are in charge of the records. In charge of approximately sixty members comprising the organization are the following: Business Manager — James Meyers Subscription Manager — Mary Sweeney Advertising Manager — Mary Sauro Subscription Assistant — Diane Karcher Assistant Business Manager — Jane Kadlick Assistant Advertising Manager — Carol Lindquist Bookkeepers are Sandra Ghetti. Shirley Strickland. Margaret Hladick, and Arlene Paquette The assistant managers of the various groups are voted on and the following year automatically become managers and new assistants are again voted on. Members must be- in g x d academic standing and their conduct must be above reproach in school activities. The advertising group obtains income by soliciting ads from the local merchants; the subscription group is in charge of revenue from the student body, and the bookkeepers are in charge of all records relative to the Sassamon paper. Advisors are Mr Anderson and Mr Mitro.SUBSCRIPTION COMMITTEE Front Row: L. Sollogub. L. Silton, M Schallcr. C. Biagctti, C. Priorc. B. Nollman. Second Row: R Holston. E Hdpin. I.. I.onber.ecr, Nl.

Tlic Senior Class Play Reading Committee selected as our play the very amusing "Arsenic and Old Lace" by Joseph Kesselring. This was a difficult play both to cast and produce as its main characters are somewhat elderly and eccentric to say the least. Tryouts were held in September, organized and directed by our coach. Mr. Harry I.. Garnett and his assistant, Mrs. Susan M Gray, who were amazed by the number of senior girls who wanted to be aged fifty years. Nine weeks of daily, after-school rehearsals followed the casting of the play, and although this period was long and arduous, the 'esprit dc corps" was high because of the cooperativeness of every member of the cast. Arsenic and Old Lace" concerns two daffy old ladies (Diane Young and Mary Sauro), their equally pixilated nephew Teddy (David Johnson), and twelve old gentlemen who have "gone to Panama" via arsenic-laden wine The domestic tranquility is shattered when nephew Mortimer (Ted Nelson), who is romancing the minister's (Robert Taylor) daughter (Priscilla Burns), discovers the content of the cellar and realizes the situation has to be remedied immediately. But to complicate his scheme, still another mad nephew, Jonathan (Bruce Connell) comes home for a visit after an absence of ten years, accompanied by his personal surgeon Dr. Einstein (James Hayes), who specializes in face-lifting and a spare cadaver which seems just to clutter up the house. The police (Don Lawrence, Gerald Layton, Thomas Wells, and Peter Garland), brought on the scene because of minor complaints of the neighbors refuse to believe anything detrimental about the Brewsters, so the problem concerning these mad people is solved only when Mr. Witherspoon ( Jeffrey Hass) appears on the scene. 94Front Row: T.

The attractive 1959-60 squad, capably led by Pat Perry, will be remembered for the enthusiastic support they displayed at the football, basketball, hockey games, and track meets. The girls placed third in the Bay State League .hocHeading Competition held at Milton this year, ending a very eventful season. The members of this energetic group. Sherry ( ollins. Peggie Kcany, Marsha Webb. Diane Armitage, Sandy Ghetti. Patty Hersev, Janet Ross, Janice Wilson, Nancy Zicko, and Pat Perry are to lie congratulated for a job well done! 106FOOTBALL The 1959 football team, led by Captain Morris Wilson and coached by Dan Bennett, finished a very successful season, becoming the first undefeated, untied team for Coach Bennett. The season began at Norwood, as our team defeated a good Norwood team 50-14. With this victory behind them, the team then beat a vastly-improved Walpole team. 44-14. The traditional Columbus Day game proved to be the closest game of the season, the Wellesley team nearly upsetting us, but at the final gun the score was 24-20 and we were again victorious. After this close game, the squad rolled along, defeating North Quincy 28-0, Dedham 50-6, Milton 24-0, and Needham 20-14. The Braintree game was a 28-14 victory which was enjoyed immensely by all because the lone defeat of the 1958 season was handed the Natick team by Braintree. The climax and finish of the season was when the Thanksgiving Day game ended in a 22-12 victor)’ over a very speedy and agressive Framingham team. This year's team, led by Sandy Wilson, started with only three regulars from the previous year. But around Jack Hayes, Sandy Wilson and Ralph Doran (loach Bennett built a very formidable squad. Jack Hayes, Sandy Wilson, Gordon Peterson. Tom Carroll, and Bob Foster, along with juniors Joe Kiley. captain-elect for I960, and Gary Witten, proved to be a hard line to break through. Ralph Doran, John "Mac" McGilvray, and Ted Bracken made a very efficient backfield which was capably led by "ace" quarterback Walt Butch" Hriniak. One of the main reasons for Natick’s undefeated, untied season was the tremendous job done by the defense. 'CommutJ next Cjw 107Front Row J McGilvray, J. Gilbert. T Carroll, J Hayes. M.

Once again Natick was high scoring team for the state with 266 points and Ralph Doran was one of the leaders for the state with 100 points.

What they lacked in height they made up in spirit. Carey’s Redmen got off to a spectaculer start winning five consecutive games. Then, due to various injuries to some of the key men, games were lost. Good sportsmanship was always shown through victories and defeats. This year’s Hay State League was at its peak with the competition very keen. Due to the efforts of Mr. Carey’s fine coaching, the team defeated second place Milton, Needham, Norwood, Wellesley, Dedham, and Framingham who this year had one of its finest teams. ( aptain Tom Argir lias been the leading player this year He broke Pete Smith’s scoring record, was a top re-bounder, and second in scoring in the Rav State League-Bob Foster, Natick's tallest player was the leading rebounder and a good scorer. Louis Kerns, a transfer student from Maine, was a good re bounder. Willie Mac Gregcr's soft push shot got many points Ralph Pryor, a sophomore who was brought up from the Junior Varsity, scored many key baskets. To buck up the team there was a good bench led by Bob Bleakney and Robert Bemis. supported by Gordon Peterson and Stephen I laskell. Barry Paul and Jerry Lay-ton were the capable senior managers 110IllFront Row: W. Porter. R Cakum. D Johnson. I' kolman. P Read. D Zicko. H GoJdcn. J Salvin.

The season’s record was four wins and one loss. Victories were recorded over North Quincy 39-38. Arlington 52-27, Watertown 52-27, and Somerville 41-36; the loss coming at the hands of Belmont 44-33 in a hard-fought meet Natick also placed second in the State Meet, with Paui Kolman winning the shot-put and Dave Johnson placing second in the high-jump. Other consistant point winners were seniors Ralph Doran in the 50. Ted Barnicle in the mile, Wally Porter in the 500. and Frank Walker in the shot put Underclassmen who will give next year’s team .i strong foundation are Santamaria. Winner, Frazce. Read, Bloomstein. Tripp. Zicko. and Godden. 114HOCKEY Our first year in the Bay State League proved to be one of much stronger competition than was anticipated. After a win over Milton in our first game of the season, our next encounter was with Framingham which resulted in a duel defeat; first, the ultimate loss of the game; and second put most important, the severe leg injury to our captain, Joe Kiley, whose services as a defenseman were lost for the remainder of the season A most disheartening game was a tie with winless Wellesley but our greatest triumph came just two days later — a 2-2 tie with the undefeated league champion, Walpole. Acting captain Walter "Butch” Hriniak led the team m scoring and to a -1-.S-2 record for the season. Junior Gus Capizzo turned in a countless number of sparkling plays in the net. The steady play of seniors Bob Linton, Mike Bruni. Jon Gilbert; juniors. Art Hall, Tony Pessini; and sophomores Gary Omcrso, Cliff Catia. AI Caizini, and Pete Hurd was not quite strong enough to meet the challange of the more experienced teams in the league. Tom Stewart. Dick True, Larry Hines, Bill Lacouturc and Cliff Gibson made up the rest of the team This year’s team was a comparatively young team and Co3ch Bob Bell feels next year’s team should be a league winner with all but three of the players returning for another try at the championship 115116 “1 I I s CROSS COUNTRY TRACK m to ar From Row: Mr. Bennett.

Besides sweeping the dual meet competition, our team won the Bay State Conference track meet and fared well against larger schools in the State Meet, St. John's Relays, and Belmont Relays. Ralph Doran won consistently in the 100, as did Wally Porter in the low hurdles. Paul Kolman in the shot put, Dave Johnson in the high jump. Frank Walker in the discus, and Bob Calzini in the pole vault. With a strong nucleus consisting of underclassmen Reed, Santamaria. Frazee. Kadlik. Witten.

The highlight of the season was Naticks' two victories over rival Framingham by scores of 6-5 and 5-3. Tim Donovan and Arnold Amoroso pitched these two victories. The infield was composed of Gordan Peterson at first base, Tom Argir at second base, Bobby Wall at third base, and Walter llriniak at Shortstop. This infield was rated the best in the league. The outfield consisted of Tim Donovan and Bob Foster m leftfield, Arnold Amoroso in Centcrfield and Jon Gilbert in rightficld. The catching position was very capably handled by John Barnidc and Steve Haskell Both of these boys did an excellent job Coach arroll in his first year at Natick credits the team spirit and desire of every member of the team to give maximum effort as responsible for the successful season 122J.

She was aided most ably by Carol Wood, who with her perfected lay-up shot saved many a game.

Susan Owens heads the guards with new-comer Margaret Legge turning in a wonderful performance in her first season. Margie Matson and Judy Reckendorf added heighth to the guards and really pulled the rebounds down. Backed up by Dee Reardon and her excellent playing, the guards did a most praiseworthy job.

Among those who were embarking were Paul Ascltine, Phillip Johnson. Robert Bemis, Frank Lombard and Robert Lynch. Alice Howard, one of the spaceport hostesses, rushed into the customs office to help check through the long line of waiting passengers. One her way she passed by Janet Bartlett, Susan Brenneman, Janice Huggard, and Dorothy Matson, the efficient secretaries of William Bush, owner of the spaceport. Eugene Antinori was hurriedly checking off the passports of the passengers among whom were Linda Kannel, the interior decorator, David Lumsden, the forest conservationist, and his partner James Barniclc, and teachers. Thomas Argir, Penny Burns, Joanne Walsh, and Celia Biagetti At the next desk Robert Bleakney was busy selling insurance to Charlotte Lauro, Marcia Thompson. Ann Blanchard and Dorothy Blumenthal of the A Caluna Chorus. The noise of the spaceport suddenly lulled as Michael Bruni in the control tower announced that the rocket ship would leave in approximately fifteen minutes, and that all passengers should board the ship Field mechanics Peter Maffei and Ronald Butt swung open the gates for the passengers. The huge silver rocket ship designed by Robert Olshansky and manufactured by the Edward Walker Company stood poised on the launching pad. Hostesses I.aurea Kenney. Mara Rozitis and Jackie McGlay waited to check of! the passengers as they boarded the ship. Heads turned as a cab driven by Gerald Layton screeched to a stop at the entrance — Judy Mulle, the famous actress, scrambled out. followed by her hairdresser. Marie Bcrnardi, and Joan Karcher who was in charge of her wardrobe Theodore Nelson, author of the plays in which she had starred, and Richard Leone, her press agent, were being interviewed by David Johnson, while press photographers Jon Padover and Elizabeth Holloway photographed Miss Mulle Lunar City was the destination of the fourth rocket ship to leave for the moon Reporters Ernest Brayton and Steve Breen fired questions at the earth’s diplomats. James Meyers. Secretary of State; I awrence Brady, first ambassador to the moon; and Kenneth Johnson, delegate to the United Worlds Council. They were accompanied by their interpreter. Sandra Jansson. I’he reporters also took note of various other specialistsgoing to help establish the newly-created moon colony Educators Donald Lawrence, Joan Mandels, Lee Ann Mansell. Raymond Hardy, lillaine Clarke, and Mary Ann Gelt were on their way to new positions, along with the beginnings of a Hospital staff. Doctor Alfred Augustini, the heart specialist, and Doctor John Barnicle. authority on space diseases, filed on board along with medical technician. Eleanor Mathes, and medical secretaries l.inda l.onberger. Elaine Halpm. and Maxine Gray. They were followed by nurses Donna Bellofatto, Carol Johnson, Ruth Holston, Bev erly Ward, Gail O'Sullivan, and Susan Owens. Arnold Amoroso and his business partner Allan Ar-buckle of the Terra Firma Realty Company climbed aboard with their vice-president Robert Linton, and accountant Edward Barnicle. Following them were their secretaries Rachael Jennings. Marguerite Keaney. C harlotte Augustine. Nancy Boutilier, and Judy Cabo. Office workers Sandra Jacobs. Ann Keighley. Mary and Wilma Knowles. Patricia Leach. Margaret Lane, and Barbara Lee were also part of the group. ». Nicholas Amendola. prospective owner of a pizza house on the moon, came fully equipped with waiters Charles Adam. Ronald Aseltine, and Charles Austin, and waitresses Margaret Lcgge, Edna Lynch. Carol Mabardy, Nancy Waddintgon. and Marion Brady. Marjorie Kane and Isabelle Bryer. his hostesses, were also going to make the trip Robert Gilzini, the renowned editor of the Boston Times, was traveling with several of his staff — William MacGregor, news editor. Ann Canoni. society reporter. Robert Wall, sports editor, Frank Mastro, photographer, and reporters Marie Carey, Sharon and Coleen Campbell, Marilyn Byrnes, Diane Thompson, Theresa Tetrault, and Valeric Alexander, and copy boy Roger Boyington. Pilots Stephen Higgins and Frank Walker climbed into the cockpit minutes before the steel doors were closed by Edward Kerrissty and John Kadlick. Field mechanics David Butt. Anthony Tomasctti. Edward Lynch and Michael Mabee made last minute repairs on the ship as Anthony Lewis announced from the control tower the departure of the rocket. Spaceport Marshalls William Broyles. Robert Taylor, Paul Thomas, and Edward Bcsscy cleared the field while Peter Wallace and Peter Martell and David Howard closed the wire gates, all was ready for take-off Inside the ship, electrical engineers Harvey Davis. Dick Cox, Michael Devin and Paul Doppler rapidly ran through their check list, making certain that everything was functioning normally. Suddenly the voice of Bruce Connell crackled over the intercom system of the spaceport, which, incidentally, is owned by Peter Garland. "Your take-off is scheduled in seven minutes." The six of us were starting our first vacation to the moon, planned by Ralph Hamwey's travel agency We fastened our seat belts as the green light over the door of the pilot's cabin flashed. Hostesses Sandra Colleta, Helen Dunbar. Claire Goldrich, and Carolyn Hallctt made sure that everyone was prepared for the take off, as crew members Robert Dobachesky and John Coughlin scaled the rocket's doors from inside and technician Paul Kolman adjusted the pressure gauges. We heard an eirie whine as we felt the ship rise slowly from the earth. Navigators Robert Cudmore and Roger Winters informed the pilot that the ship was on the right course. Back in the passenger section of the ship, we recognized fashion consultant Merryl Donley with her assistants Rac Copan. Marie Coughlin, and Josephine Culcasi. Talking to them, we discovered that they were bound for the new fashion centre under construction on the moon. We were introduced to professor Ralph Doran and his fellow teachers Walter Porter. Joan Cox. Deborah Davis and Judith Connors who were all on their way to Crater U. Talking to Wendell Carter, owner of Interplanetary Construction Company, we were informed that he and his associates Robert Condon, Timothy Donovan, and William Duffy were headed for the moon to help build the new Crater Field Development next to the colony. Bound for posts in the colony's Affairs Administration Council were businessmen Orrin Doxer, John Chiumcnto, Dayton Ross, and Barry Paul along with their secretaries Margaret Dugan. Marietta DeFazio. Janet Curry. Mary Cotter, and Nancy Ryan. 147Seated at the next crescent-shaped table. Eileen Parsons, the author, was discussing sketches with Margaret Luttrell, her illustrator and co-author. With them were publisher Robert White-house and his executive secretary, Sarmite Mednis. A group of secretaries from the Astro-State Building, Durrie Mathews, Marilyn McIntosh, Carol Swanson, Carol Priore, Chelia Reed, and Susan Robbins. Maureen Riley, Carol Turner, Joanne Scheufele, finished their lunch hour and pushed through the revolving doors into the street. We followed them back to their offices, passing Shopper's Moon", located adjacent to the spaceport. Waterman's Department Store, owned by Robert Waterman, was the largest in the shopping center. Pat Smith, head of personnel, and her executive assistant Sheila Egan, were responsible for hiring Pat Schaldone, Pamela Smith, Dorothy Perkins, Shirley Strickland. Carol Ann Woods and Judy Fournier as salesgirls. Nancy Porter and Jean Petitpas were fashion coordinators in the exclusive Venus Shoppe. Joanne s Beauty Salon, on the third floor of Waterman’s is famous for its 'Cosmic ray cut." Joanne Micelotta, the owner, employed hairdressers I.ois Ortenzi, Sandra Nims, and Betsy Perry. "Ward and Webb." the mail-order house owned by Robert Ward and Earl Webb, delivers "anywhere in the universe." Nancy Nelson compiled their catalogue which offered everything from atomic ovens to two seater spaceships. As we passed, several delivery jets, driven by Nat Sciacca, William Suttill. David Moore. Rupert Nelson, and David Morgan whizzed away from the loading platform. Crossing at the busy intersection, where Dan O'Callaghan was directing traffic, we arrived at the entrance of the Astro Building. Alvcna Ortenzi and Martha Nichols, executive secretaries, ran toward the doors, glancing anxiously at their watches. All of the secretaries entered the building, and we turned to discover General Morris Wilson, who is commander of the United States Military installations on the Moon. He offered to take us on an informal tour of inspection and to show us the work being done to protect and defend our moon cities. First wc- visited the Quartermaster Corps which was working to perfect pressurized suits. This task was under the direction of James Robbins with his assistants. Robert Slotnick, Robert Wilson, and David Robshaw. From the Quartermaster headquarters we were taken to the laboratory which is under the direction of Doctors Mary Ellen Vantassell and Theresa Roskey. The technicians Gay Van Warmer, Lois Silton, and Mary Sauro explained the purpose of the research. We flew to a plain pock-parked by craters to see the maneuvers of newly trained troops. We saw Robert Spinney, Daniel Spurling, and Richard Ryan of the National Guard; Navy men Leonard Simpson and James Wight; and leathernecks I'om Schofield and Arthur Wright. We discovered that all branches of the service cooperate and work together here on the moon. However, General Wilson explained that each service still wore its own uniform. Our pilot flew us back to the base and invited us to eat in the mess hall. Wc ate a delicious meal prepared by the chief cook. John Pritoni. At the conclusion of the meal. Major John Troy, who was second in command at the base, offered to accompany us back to the city. While returning, we flew over a group of buildings under construction. Our pilot, John Svets, offered to land so that we could see the new work. Walking toward the building, we met Paul Kolman and Peter Gleba, the architects. They introduced us to Irwin Rubin, the owner of the real estate firm that was building the new housing development. Upon entering one of the houses, we encountered Roger Saart and Robert Valli, electricians who were completing the wiring; James Rook and Eddy Prior who were installing vis-a-phones, the new telephone and television combinations. Francis Powers and David Sanford were adding the final touches to the modern kitchen. We discussed plans with Paula Chamberlain, Kathleen Hand, and Mary Sweeney. the talented interior decorators. Leaving the house we went over to the next building. There, the basic construction was still going on. We saw Richard Williams working on the outside while David Petrie finished the roof. Nicholas Ortenzi was laying the floor inside. We walked outside and met Diane Y'oung and Marsha Webb who were discussing attractive "moon scape" plans. Then our pilot suggested that we return to the city. We landed at the public terminal, hopped into a space bus. where wc noticed Iris Rovncr. Mary Schaller. Pat Schavone. Virginia Whitledge. and Freda Spinney, and soon arrived at the airport. Our great vacation and sight-seeing trip was over! We had thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. With memories of the marvelous sights we had seen and interesting people we had met. we entered the ticket office and bought tickets from Leslie Sollogub. Also working at the counter were Catherine Casavant and Judith Celia selling tickets, and Ann Griffin and Susan Helpin selling tlight insurance. We sat in the lounge awaiting the time for departure and happily anticipating our return to good old "terra firma." Celia Biagetti Thomas Carroll Sandra Jannson Joan Mandels Patricia Smith Eileen ParsonsOver the P.A. ........ ...v music of Chris Crisa- fulli and John DeFiore, followed by an announcement from the co-pilot, Tom Crosby, that we were proceeding on schedule and that within fifteen minutes we should leave the earth's gravitational pull. While stewards Clifford Caswell. James Ellis, Neal Estella, and William Saponaro checked the baggage com-partment, they discovered three stowaways. I ric l ritkson. John Casavant, and Harold Duboyce. After being interrogated by officer Dennis Drugan, who was accompanied by physiologist Sherry Collins, the stowaways were given complete physicals by Dr. Thomas Carrol and nurse Virginia Driver, to make certain that they were fit for space travel After they were put under the supervision of Patrol Officers Donald Saviano, Paul Yco, and Robert Schmidt until they reached the moon. According to the meteorologists, Robert Stacy and Jerry Wells, the spaceographic calculations revealed to us the location and the distance remaining; they were pleased to inform us that the trip overall was quite satisfactory. Chief electrical technician, Leonard Harvie, and head crewman. Eddie Hasgill, were to be congratulated for the safety in which the ship had flown. People settled back in their seats so that they might be able to gaze at the panorama out the windows and enjoy the company. We noticed a young girl across the aisle whose fears of her first flight were being soothed by both Dr. Thomas Glynn and his nurse, Patricia Hall. What convenience and luxury! There is hairdresses Pat Gonnerman. touching up the famous comedienne, Barbara Xollman; the accomplished linguist. Donna Gordon, chatting with the ambassadors from Turkey, Robert Fish and John Hayes. Is that the world famous business executive. Dave Hammond, arguing with his lawyer, Steve Haskell? Well, of all the nerve! Mr. Hammond s secretary, Barbara Harvie, is hidden in a scat behind him, recording all she hears. Having had nothing to cat for hours, we decided to amble into the dining room. Walking down the aisle, we noticed Admiral Howard Hennigar seated with Bill Hahn, the oceanographer. Could they, perhaps, be traveling to the moon to study its oceans and navigate them? Farther down the aisle, we passed a convention of teachers, including Gail Gurney, Linda Hayward. Gail Nold, Pat Perry, and Martha Gordon, teacher of the handicapped. Seated in the dining room, we observed the head waitress, Barbara Flynn, with Deanne Fillmore and Virginia Ferullo, Carol Voner, and Diane Spinney, working beside her. Could that be Jon Gilbert over there — yes. he must be the owner of the restaurant. He was conversing with Donald Fitch, the renowned food taste-tester. Evidently, Master Fitch was complaining about a piece of food which seemed to be affecting his tooth, he seemed determined not to submit to the dentistry of Dr. Fontccchio, and his assistant, Bonnie Fuhrmann. As we enjoyed the "Gilbert Room foot!, we unconsciously found ourselves eavesdropping on a conversation at the next table. Jim Hayes, who was known by his colleagues as the second Frank Lloyd Wright, was having a heated controversy with Jeff Hass, chief construction engineer of the House of Hass. They were arguing over the erection of an insurance building in Lunar City. Mr. Hayes thought nothing could compare with his own ideas. Fearing that we might involve ourselves and our opinions in the debate, we rapidly finished the meal and returned to our seats with the intention of getting a little rest before land-ing. Linda Fredrickson, head stewardess, came and supplied us with pillow and blanket for added comfort. At that moment, we heard some one. who was later discovered to be Robert Heffron, trying to sell a sort of helio-car for convenient and practical use on the moon. I noticed that John Hansen has motioned to him. An expert in the engineering field, he was probably trying to find out the real worth of such a device. Evidently it was an interesting conversation for both engineers. Richard Goulston and John Gowen. moved over to enter into the discussion. Suddenly, 1 sat up, startled at a change in position of the ship, and realized that we were about to land; I could see a rather dim view of the surface of the moon below us. Bob Foster, one of the co pilots, stepped from the cockpit and advised us to fasten our seat belts for the landing. Stewardesses. Kathy Fallon and Debbie FitzGerald walked down the aisle to give what aid might be needed. Crewmen. Bob Fisher, George FitzPatrick, and Joe Fuller were making the ship ready to land. Our space ship floated onto its landing space and locked in place. Massive steel doors slid open, and passengers filed out slowly, blinking as their cy-.s became accustomed to the moon's atmosphere. Director of the hospital staff. Dr. Carolyn Parris, greeted the new members and guided them through the spaceport to the front entrance. Syk-caps David McDonald, John McEvoy, Walter McGrath, and William Myers placed their luggage in the back of the hospital's white helicopter as Sam Peoples, the pilot, started the motor. Along with many other passengers we entered the Port Restaurant, owned by Gordon Peterson. Waitresses Marcia Pctrino, Sharon Pratt. Carol McElroy, Diane Parker, and Linda Paul took our orders and suggested Green Cheese Surprise, the specialty of the day. Many moon residents were also dining in the restaurant. Jet manufacturers Robert McKechnie and Peter Gal-vani, owners of "Drive-a-jet, INC." with their chief engineer. Arthur Porter, and designers Raymond Moody and John McGilvray were engaged in a serious discussion of a forthcoming model. 149WELCOME ADDRESS CLASS DAY EXERCISES Welcome Address at Class Day Exercises Parents, Teachers and Friends: It is my pleasure, as President of the Class of I960, to welcome you to our Class Day Exercises. Today, as never before, we Seniors perceive how wisely the townspeople have invested their money in an institution which has prepared us so well for facing the future. Here we have acquired more than book learning. for this high school has created an atmosphere of cooperation, has instilled within us the ideals of democracy, and has introduced us to the social aspects of life. Through the example of our teachers we have learned the values of tolerance and understanding, tempered by discipline. May we always live up to the standards set by Natick High School, thus displaying our appreciation for all it has imparted to us. Kenneth Fontecchio President, Class of I960 Kenneth Fontecchio President. Class of I960 150CLASS HISTORY By Peter Garland CLASS HISTORY As we, the class of 1960, look forward to graduation, let us pause briefly to reflect on our past history here at Natick High School. In September of 1956, we arrived at the high school in typical freshman eagerness and mass confusion. However, with the mid-years and the final examinations under our belt, we soon became seasoned veterans. Then in our sophomore year, the class of I960 really began to make an impression as we got into the swing of things. We became "Joiners” and leaders of every type of activity in the school. Our newly elected officers, Steven Haskell, Sheila Egan, Ann Canoni and Diane Slamin met with our class advisors. Miss Howard and Mr. McGowan and came up with an ingenious plan . . . class dues. Continuing in the footsteps of this our first executive government, we elected, for our junior officers, Steven Haskell, Sherry Collins. Patricia Smith, and Paula Chamberlain. Then in our senior year, we elected Kenneth Fontecchio, Ralph Doran, Claire Goldrick, and Paula Chamberlain, our class officers. The record of all of our class officers speaks well for the responsibility which we placed in them. Good student government alone was not our strong point though, for the class of I960 had many versatilities as our junior and senior years clearly illustrate. We were also outstanding in the scholastic and athletic endeavors as well. For some of us, most of our junior year was spent planning and preparing for our prom, the theme of which was "Grecian Fantasy". At this wonderful dance, Georgene Knott was crowned queen and Marsha Webb and Sherry Collins were her princesses. This indeed was a fitting climax to our junior year, but we also did a lot more as you well know. Scholastically, we were a selected class, the first to try an English drama course entitled Television Course in the Humanities" which was quite fruitful to all of us. Also, students of our class with high academic and service records were selected for the National Honor Society. Those selected were Celia Biagctti, Eileen Parsons, Susan Brennc-man, Linda Hayward, Theodore Nelson, Peter Galvani. Robert Olshansky, Alvena Ortcnzi, Susan Owens, Sherry Collins, Diane Young. Steven Haskell, and Peter Garland. Science was always one of our strong points as our junior history shows. In that year, Robert Olshansky topped his freshman first prize in the Science Fair with the first and grand prize. Later in our senior year, Terry Roskey and Thomas Wells carried on our scientific tradition with two more first prizes. Also in our junior year, we elected representatives from the class to attend Boys' State and Girls' State. Those elected were Steven Haskell, John McGilvray and Paula Chamberlain. Still another important part of our junior history, which can not be- overlooked was our rather rough introduction to the College Boards. The first one was really hard, but much to our surprise the senior results of the test actually showed improvement. Naturally there is one part of our junior history that none of us can ever forget; that was the day some big bad rustlers tried to conceal their stolen cow in our steel box canyon. As Mr. Shea would say, "This was one of the livelier moments of history ". Our junior year and its carefree moments were soon in the past, and in the fall of 1959 we entered our final and most active year at the high school. At long last we were actually known as SENIORS. When we returned this year we found much to our delight that Natick High School now had a language lab and a reading lab, both of which proved invaluable in our studies. Quickly the responsibilities and joys of being seniors caught up with us, as we began rehearsing for "Arsenic and Old Lace" our senior class play. The cast under the able direction of Mr. Garnett and Mrs. Gray included such greats as Jeff Hass, David Johnson. Ted Nelson, Thomas Wells, Bruce Connell, Don Lawrence, Daniel O'Callahan. Robert Taylor, Gerald Layton. Penny Burns, Mary Sauro, Diane Young, Carolyn Parris, James Hayes, and Peter Garland. As you well know this play was ont of the most difficult ever staged at the high school. Other performances in which members of the class of I960 have distinguished themselves were "The Colonel Comes to Kansas" and more recently, "Hi-Fi Follies”, the leading male role in each performance played by Bruce Connell. For his role in The Colonel Comes to Kansas". Ted Nelson won the Directors’ Award. Following closely on the footsteps of the play was our Christmas Cotillion. Who can ever forget this dance with everything made to order, including the snow? Climaxing this dance was the crowning of the winter queen. Penny Burns. Athletically speaking, we had a very good senior year. Under the direction of Coach Dan Bennett and Captain Sandy Wilson, we had an undefeated football season. Also, our indoor track team under Coach Whalen and Captain Paul Kolman did very well indeed. Other teams which kept up the Natick tradition were the basketball team and Captain Tom Argir. and the outdoor track team with Co-Captains Walter Proter and Ralph Doran. The boys did a great job this year, but they probably couldn't have done-half as well if Captain Pat Perry, Marsha Webb, Sherry Collins, Peggie Keany and the rest of the cheerleaders hadn't been on the job. Sports, however, was not our be-all and end-all as some would believe, but we, the class of 1960, proved that Natick is the home of champs in more than one way. John Hanson, Thomas Glynn, and Robert Olshansky were finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Contest. The following received honorable mention; Valerie Alexander. Thomas Carroll, Harvey Davis, Theodore Nelson. Mary Sweeney. Diane Young. In the Honor Society Scholarships, Eileen Parsons and Robert Olshansky were finalists. The Good Brotherhood Award went to Steven Higgins, while the D A R Award went to Paula Chamberlain. We elected Steven Haskell. Sandy Wilson. Alvena Ortenzi. Lawrence Brady and Peter Garland as our Good Government Representatives. We exchanged programs with the city of Gloucester and, Steven Haskell was our delegate to the State House. Now as we await our graduation we can look back on our past history at Natick High School with honor and dignity. The book which records our history is not yet closed; it will remain open for years to come as a continuously growing and impressive record for the class of I960. Peter GarlandThe time has come when the class of I%0 must pass on Being aware of the grief our departure will cause, we have drawn up our List Will and Testament, not in the customary legal form, since we were never strict adherents to law, rather in a form that will more adequately express our sincere wishes. The purpose of this document is to leave the faculty and underclassmen some momentos to comfort them in their sorrow. To the faculty, we leave one large "thank-you" note-expressing our gratitude for the knowledge they have forced into our heads during our high school years. I he card is signed by each member of the class except those who have failed to be impressed by this coercion. To the Juniors, we leave the task of trying to squeeze twenty-nine hours of work into a twenty-four hour day and still be successful and worthy of being called Seniors. To the Sophomores, we leave our final approval and permission to take one "giant step toward their Senior year on the condition that all their faults, which we the Seniors have readily pointed out, be corrected before proceeding. To the Freshmen, whether they be at Coolidge or Wilson Junior High School, we leave our condolence for losing the privilege of being dominated by our class. To both Mr. Hennigar and Mr. Bartnick, we bequeath a place m the Hall of Fame for outstanding high school administrators. To our advisors. Miss Howard and Mr. McGowan, we leave our sincere appreciation lor their untiring help that played a big part in making our class "tops '.

To Miss Crawley, we leave one-third of the year’s supply of X periods to be used only for Honor Society meetings, which somehow always seem to be left out of the schedule. To the Driver Training Instructors, Mr. Slamin, Mr. Goddard, and Mr. Woodhams, we leave the problem of driving the practice car without the gears, which, at this point, have been ground to dust. To our beloved nurse, Mrs. Brown, we leave one "eye-catcher". a machine not yet patented, designed to apprehend students who have not had their eyes tested. To Mr. Filledes, we leave several bottles of "Red Cap Rcfresh-R ' for use in the overpopulated biology prep room To Miss Dalton, we bequeath one push cart to be used for transporting books from one class to the next. We arc-assigning the Sophomores to the task of pushing said cart for the duration of next year. To Mr. Drown, we leave a long-playing album of rock and roll music, which will inspire his students to reach record-breaking speeds when typing to music. To the gym teachers, Miss Tillson. Miss Vassile, Mr. Leighton, and Mr. Whelan, we leave a large trunk, which contains an assortment of sneakers, gym suits, books and jewelry that has been left in the locker rooms during the past year. ( You may use your own discretion in disposing of any unwanted articles.) To Mr. Collins, we bequeath an electronic computer guaranteed to solve any mathematical problem. To Mr. Collins, we also bequeath a screw driver, since the computer comes in a do-it-yourself kit. To Mr. Johnson, we leave one high voltage alarm clock, set to go off at the end of each period and to ring "loud and clear" before each lunch period so that he will never suffer the fate of missing that long awaited meal. To the school at large, we leave a museum which will include John Troy's collection of racing forms; Dennis Drugan's collection of forty-two comic books left to him by Dick Wells; Judy Mullc's collection of tardy slips and the detentions that go with them; the collection of trophies won by our athletically inclined boys; and several snapshots of the mysterious cow found in the courtyard during election week.

Shannon155156• 1 Parents, Teachers and Friends: WELCOME ADDRESS AT GRADUATION By Kenneth Fontecchio President, Class of I960 EXERCISES 9 • • e Tonight we. the Seniors of Natick High School, repose on the threshold of adulthood. We shall not repose long. I assure you. Before us lie many paths, all leading into a world threatened by political philosophies which endanger our very lives. Whether we take the path leading to the armed services, industry, business or higher education, it shall be our duty to preserve this democracy of America, set up by our forefathers long ago. against toxic ideologies. Realizing that as future citizens of America the destiny of civilization rests upon our shoulders, we approach the threshold confident of success. Our four years of education at Natick High School have proved most beneficial to us in acquiring gook knowledge, in developing ability to co-operate with our associates, and in becoming determined to utilize our vocational abilities. Thus, with profound gratitude to our administrators, teachers, and parents who have generously bestowed such upon us. we sincerely welcome you to our Graduation Exercises.The many achievements of this technological age have created a society more complex and intricate than ever before. In nearly all areas of endeavor we find that society is composed of many small, varied parts, each performing its own specialized task in harmony with all others. Like a huge piece of machinery the overall performance of our social apparatus is dependent upon the quality of each of its parts and the precision and efficiency with which each part functions. As a machine relies upon all its parts and is seriously weakened by the loss of even a small bolt, so in our society each small part is essential and the absence of any one part affects the operation of the entire structure. In short, progress has created a complex society requiring high individual performance over a great diversity of occupations and professions. Fortunately, the abilities and interests of men are as widely varied as are the demands of society. Because of the great range of available occupations, the needs, aptitudes, and interests of the individual are more-compatible with career opportunities than ever before. Therefore, by cultivating the natural talents and interests of all men. we will have a labor force sufficiently diversified and skilled to satisfy the demands of society and at the same time to meet the needs of the individual. Assuming this premise to be true, how can we develop the abilities of the individual so that he can satisfy both his personal requirements and those of society? ESSAY By Robert Olshansky First, we should have a method for determining the individual's area of high potential and interest; secondly, we should be prepared to offer him the opportunity to develop and train this talent; and lastly, we should provide the type of motivation that will encourage him to pursue his natural abilities. Obviously, if these three conditions are to be met, they should occur early in a persons life. It follows, then, that the family and the school will be the two major influences in shaping the development of individual. Let us examine more closely the roles of the family and the school in relation to the problem of identifying abilities and providing the stimulus and opportunity to develop these abilities. In fulfilling its role, the family should recognize the great diversity needed by society and the corresponding diversity of talent inherent in our young population. Consequently the family should avoid trying to mold youth in a preconceived pattern. Parents should especially avoid inculcating their own ambitions in their children anil should avoid introducing in any other way extrinsic goals. Children brought up with the idea that they must attend a certain college or pursue one particular profession often as adults not only ignore their own abilities and stifle their own talents, but also place themselves under the handicap of striving toward a goal which may have little or no inner meaning for them The responsibility of the family is to encourage creative activities such as hobbies or other similar interests, and to acquaint the child with a wide variety of pursuits. As the child grows older his ambitions should be guided by the family into appropriate and realistic directions. I lie importance of finding a career that provides for material needs and at the same time offers self-fulfillment should best resscil. The schools should continue the same general approach introduced by the home, only in a more systematic manner. The curricula offered should allow for a greater latitude in subject areas and thus continue the process of seeking out by experimentation individual areas of high aptitude and interest. Perhaps a greater number ot one-half year courses could be offered in certain specialized fields. Such courses might arouse interest in the neglected areas of our legal and political apparatus or our social and economic structures. Exposing the student to a greater number of subject areas might enable him to decide upon a career at an earlier point and to make such a decision with greater confidence. Schools should be wary of external pressures, such as the current pleas for scientists, which tend to overemphasize a certain area of endeavor and thus have the same detrimental effect as other externally imposed aspirations. While the school and the home can supply the individual with the opportunity for discovering and developing native abilities, neither can assume more than a fraction of the responsibility of motivating the individual. Ultimately, the responsibility rests with all society — the home, school, church, government. The manner in which this responsibility is discharged depends upon the values held by society. The current failure to encourage enough talent to enter professions such as teaching and other public service positions can be ascribed to a weakness in our values. Our tendency to attach too much importance to material gains in achieving social recognition and our unwillingness to compensate adequately areas directly related to public welfare are two of our more obvious weaknesses. Critics also cite a lack of purpose in our affluent society and harshly condemn the great emphasis we place on the accumulation of consumer goods at the expense of our public services. They say we have become a nation of "personal affluence and public poverty." Youth invariably emulates the heroes of their society, the people who receive the greatest amount of prestige, respect. and monetary rewards. Today the national idols after whom youth often model themselves are limited to the movie star, the athlete and the businessman. In contrast to these models we find such stereotypes as the poverty-stricken teacher, the garret artist, the "egghead", and the corrupt politician Yeedlcss to say. recent episodes like the quiz show rigging and payola do not enhance the picture of our values. Quite apparently we would not be realistic to expect our youth to acquire dee per values and stronger motivations simply by the rhetorical guidance that is so easy to offer. In order that youth be guided toward achieving the diversity necessary for individual and social well-being the guiding values should be incor|x raicd in our daily living. Some pertinent values to which 1 make reference are personal integrity, social concern, and respect for the individual as a unique being. As has been said, a society achieves that which it holds sacred I hus. through and by diversity it is our hope that each person is given the opportunity to realize his "full potential for a creative life in freedom and dignity.” Robert Olshansky 158"What is the hardest task in the world — to think These are the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, the famous philosopher from Concord. Massachusetts. Of course, we are always thinking; about a date, homework. or simply daydreaming and musing This type of thought is of an inferior quality to the type of thought referred to by Emerson. He means that the critical, yet creative thinking so essential in our advanced lives, is the hardest task in the world. As students, our thoughts have been mainly stimulated by our school and our home environment. All courses in school develop creative thinking to some degree This is good. While in school, students should be stimulated towards critical and creative thinking. We should perhaps get away from the intellectual guessing game of true-false, and introduce more thought questions, and comparisons in the earlier grades. In this way. thought will be developed as well as expression of the self, written or oral. In connection with the development of thought, there are two subject areas that should be included in the curriculum. The first subject area is that of political science and current events, which would educate the student relative to domestic and world affairs, and greatly stimulates thought and interest concerning domestic and world problems that will carry over into the adult life of the student, making him or her a more responsible, informed, and thoughtful citizen The second subject area is that of the Humanities, mainly taught in literature courses. The Humanities should have the greatest influence on the thought development of the student because the study of the Humanities poses such questions as: What is man? What is man s purpose? What is life?, and so on. These questions may seem too difficult for some students, but this is the point, this is the challenge to the student; to think about these questions creatively. This type of thinking will be of great value in our adult life, and will be necessary, for the splitting of the atom, resulting in the atomic age. has greatly changed the values of man. As Boris Pasternak says; "In this era of world wars, in this atomic age. values have changed. We have learned that we are guests of existence, travelers between two stations. We must discover security within ourselves. During our short span of life, we must find our own insights into our relationship with existence in which we participate so briefly. Otherwise, we cannot live! And how also can we find insight into our own rela- FAREWELL ADDRESS By Steven Haskell $ ©ft • • tionship to the world and the universe without thinking! Again, this type of thinking is not the thought that changes a Camel smoker to Viceroys. This thinking is the most vital, and as Emerson said, the hardest. However, this type of thought can be cultivated and developed in our formal education. and this should be the primary purpose of education to develop the student's ability to think. Another important aspect of thought is that of the degree of thought which the mass in a democracy have. As wc say farewell to our formal education, we see that in three or four years we shall have the power to vote, a power sometimes abused by thoughtless citizens But why must the average citizen have to think so much about domestic and world affairs? On viewing a program concerning the problems of the mass media, including newspapers, books, magazines and television, a Mr. I.eo Rosten. author of The Washington Correspondent." adroitly pointed out that the problem was not so much with the mass media as it was with the masses He continued by saying that he wished the people of America would learn how to think, and added a corrolarrv that he wished the American public would learn how to read. Once again, the challenge is extended to each and every citizen of the U. S. to think. Today democracy is undergoing one of its most critical periods. The problem resolves itself into the question Do the people in a democracy want to think for themselves and keep informed about domestic and world affairs.' Can they think? Arc they able to read intelligently? These are vital qualities for the mass of democracy to po»eS' if they wish to maintain that system. Therefore, we must enter our adult lives as thoughtful participants in a free democratic country For it is only with a thinking, informed public that the capable leaders so badly needed for the future can be elected. We have the challenge; to perform the hardest task in the world, to think. And we have a duty to perform as future citizens of a democracy and the world. We must keep well informed on the problems of our times, both domestic and world-wide, to the greatest extent possible. Touching upon our personal lives, we can develop our own philosophy of life, so necessary in this atomic age. with tin same intensive thought that will make our society, country, and world a better place in which to live May 1 say with Henry David I hore.au. A little thought is sexton to all the world." Steven Haskell
