Because of the exactness of character involved in the casting of this play, most high schools refuse to attempt this production, but under the capable direction of Mr. Harry L. Garnett of the English Department, the cast slowly rounded into form, and the performance was generally regarded as one of excellence. Jane Pistone as Eliza Doo¬ little, the curbstone flower girl, turned into a society queen; Andrew Goodspeed as the English dialectition, Henry Higgins, who works this miracle of metamorphosis, and David Levine as Eliza’s father, Alf Doolittle, truly earned the ovations they received. Mark Szpakowski as Higgin’s friendly enemy, Colonel Pickering, was just right as the typical dignified Englishman, helping Eliza when Henry’s temper made her feel all was in vain. Sally Hastings as Higgin’s irrepressible mother put him in his place, much to the delight of the audience. The other characters, the Einsford-Hills, Mrs. Pierce, and the bystanders, brought out the characters of the leads beautifully with their portrayals of the common folk of London, keeping the play moving at a quick pace right from the first act. The success of the play made all involved proud to have been a part of the whole. u . ,4nte r W 1 • 1 1 _ t l m t I CHRISTMAS COTILLION bat i ni in SNOW QUEEN MUSICAL " THE GUY FROM VENUS rr I _ ;_L ' .-.fTv - i j p .Jr a? . - ■ - 1 ♦ .

The Chorus The Dance Band When Adonis stepped out of his space craft on earth, he stumbled onto a near-bank¬ rupt department store filled with old, trusted, faithful employees, slid into two budding romances, tripped over a villain and his henchmen, and fell for a rather helpless young lady. After many songs, dances, and witty remarks, the situation changes. The store is on a paying basis; all the faithful employees have jobs; the romances are in full bloom, the vil¬ lain is destroyed; and the helpless young lady is kissed goodbye. 93 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS .Kenneth Jue ..

Irving, Coach Edward Bransfield, in only his second year as the Natick High School Harrier mentor, turned in a successful year in 1962. His runners led by Co-Cap¬ tains Dick Cote and Bob Cunningham tied for the top of the Bay State League, their only defeat coming at the hands of Co-Champion Wellesley. Despite the loss, Natick still retained a share of the championship as Needham, also tying for first, dropped Wellesley from the undefeated ranks. Except for the defeat incurred at Wellesley, Na¬ tick’s record was unmarred, as the Harrier septet racked up a total of seven victories. By far, the most exciting of these triumphs came at the expense of visiting Needham High School. Setting the stage for this conquest was Needham’s six year unbeaten skein, which represented six championships and nary a loss in the history of Bay State League cross country. Na¬ tick was equal to the challenge, however, as they be¬ came the first team to hand Needham a loss, triumph¬ ing, 26 - 29. It should be pointed out that despite the loss to Wellesley, one Natick star shone brightly. Junior Jim Craig flashed over the Wellesley hills and dales in record time, winning the race. Also, at the Bay State Conference Meet, held at Walpole, Natick placed two men in the top ten, five in the top twenty-two, as they finished a close second to the same Wellesley team. Bob Rourke, fourth, and Jim Craig, sixth, were the Natick top ten finishers. A little farther back in the field came Dick Cote, thirteenth, Bob Cunningham, twenty-first, and Dick Parris, twenty-second. The fine performance turned in by the junior varsity indicate a good season next year as well. Coach Bransfield will have a nucleus of Bob Penswick, -next year’s captain, Steve DuBosky, Warren Fowler, Doug Moore, Ty Kel¬ ly, and Bill Smith, all of whom turned in excellent times the last few meets. 122 . ik mr VARSITY BASKETBALL :-v; J.

VARSITY BASKETBALL This year’s basketball squad, captained by Joe Pryor, captured the admiration of Natick residents as no team has done since the championship team of ’57. Picked for sixth place in the Bay State League by the sports writers because of a lack of experience, they breezed through their first nine games, finally ending the season with a record of 17-3, finishing in the semi¬ finals of the Tech Tourney. The boys had that intangible thing known as spirit that so often differentiates between a good team and a great one. At forwards, Paul Marsh and Bob Lefter were consistent and Lefter reached his heights in the tourney where he gunned 28 points in two of the three games. At the guards Dave MacGregor and Dave Bernardi proved tenacious defensive players and capable shooters, while Bill Pettingill proved him¬ self one of the finest backcourt men in the league. At center, Captain Joe Pryor, the spark of the team, in game after game almost singlehanded turned defeat into victory. Joe proved himself the finest all-around player in the league, rebounding, scoring, and drib¬ bling, the only big man in the league capable of going from base line to base line to score. On the bench Bob Sellars, Bob Budnick and Bob Tulloch were all excel¬ lent with Tullock being one of the best 6th men. The games were exciting, especially the big ones. The boys were great and all-in-all it was a tremendo us year for basketball at N.H.S. HOCKEY ••• Mil ... ... • " w-u. if ii iI V i m : : .-r-. ' : •• x ' S 5E»1 Front row: T. Hawes, K. Pease, J.

As President of the Class of 1963, I consider it both an honor and a privilege to welcome you to our Class Day Exercises this morning. Although this is an important event in our lives, it is merely a pre¬ amble to a long and arduous journey which we all must take. Each stu¬ dent has his own destination to reach. Thanks to the invaluable efforts of our capable teachers, not to mention our parents, we have been given encouragement and faith in ourselves for the future. Through hard endeavor and the knowledge that others have confidence in us, we shall strive to our utmost to make you poud of the Class of 1963.

Witnessed by: We, Janice and Jean Dunbar, leave to Debbie and Dottie Marie P. Donahoe CLASS HISTORY The history of the class of 1963 began in September of I960, when we were re-united after a year at different junior highs. Who could foresee in that group of fledgling sophomores such diverse celebrities as an All American football player, over ten other All Scholastic athletes, five National Merit Scholars, and a soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra? Since we were showing extraordinary talents even then, probably many were aware of our potential. Fall of our first year already found three of our classmates starting on the varsity foot¬ ball team. These boys formed the core of the team that, as seniors, would win us a league championship. As a class, we were adjusting quickly to high-school life; in a few short months, we had met and conquered the eighteen-min¬ ute lunch, mid-year exams, jammed lockers, one way traffic, and the two-minute gym shower. One of our classmates claims the world record for this, showering and dressing in one minute, fourteen and three-tenths seconds. Our biology classes supplied the science fair with many in¬ teresting and profound projects: Tom Myers was awarded first prize with " Food Preservation by Radiation”. Jill Rierdan and Richard Parris showed such great scientific aptitude that they were invited to participate in the Quartermaster Science Seminar. This was another case where classmates fulfilled their early potential, for as seniors, Jill and Richard placed first and second in physics. Although student politics in our class has been traditionally marked by upsets and surprises, our efficient senior class officers, Kenny Jue, George Batten, Ann Collins, and Michele Feldman, were already respected members of the Student Council. That spring, Ann and Michele, as well as Sue Ambler, Janni Borger. Judy Ghilani, and Gail Uhlin were elected cheerleaders. They were among the group that placed second in the Bay State cheer¬ ing contest in our senior year. Another activity in which our class was excelling was journaliam; four sophomores were chosen to be editors of the Sassamon. We returned to NHS as juniors with a year of high-school experience under our belts and with great enthusiasm for what was to be our greatest year up to that time. Showing what an academically strong class we had, many of us were exposed for the first time to college-boards and other national tests. Linda Dar¬ ling, Sally Hastings, Mark Szpakowski, Peter Williams, and David Berman did so well that they became National Merit Scholars. Twelve others were awarded letters of commendation for their excellent performance. It is interesting to note the following statistic: of the senior members of the National Honor Society of the boys were on some varsity team; numbered among these were five team captains. We continued our fine athletic performance throughou: that year but, unlike most classes, we not only won trophies we also donated one. When Chick Welch of the Natick Herald was ill last winter, our classmates on the indoor track team initiated a collection for a trophy in his name to be given annually to the most improved track man. Spring of our junior year saw our classmates receiving num¬ erous individual honors. Kenny Jue and Justin Hughes were elected as our representatives at Boys’ State. Roger True was i awarded the Harvard Book prize and Sally Hastings won a French award in addition to the Wheaton Club prize. Merle Rickies won first prize in a Spanish test for all of New England. That season also saw a great class effort, our prom. Practically everyone in the class worked on this project and their efforts re- i suited in a climax to our junior year. As we stand here today and reflect on our senior year, it is difficult to give sufficient recognition to each event. Traditionally, the first affair of the senior year is the class play, Bernard Si.aw’s Pygmalion, was the real manifestation of the talent our class had already displayed in two consecutive musicals. The classic comedy is an unusually ambitious play for high-school production, but Jane Pistone, Andrew Goodspeed and the sup¬ porting cast were equal to the task and made it a tremendous art¬ istic and financial success. In February, an art exhibit was held at the high school which Cynthia Bradeen won first prize in oil painting and also was awarded the grand prize. After entertaining the entire school with a concert, Peter Williams was selected to appear as guest soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In sports, victory was nothing new to Captain Justin Hughes and the football team; most of the boys had been winning for two or even three years. This year they won so often that they tied for the league championship, and romped over Framingham 44-6. Individually, high-scoring backs Steve Gallant and Paul Peters were All-Scholastic, and Joe Pryor was All American. Our cross-country team, led by Bob Cunningham and Dick Cote brought further honor on our class. Not only did they win Coach Ed Bransfield his first conference championship, but they also became the only team in history to beat the perennial power, Needham. In winter sports, our basketball team surprised everyone by giving freshman coach Charles Christie a tie for second in the tough Bay State League. In Tech Tourney play, Captain Joe Pry¬ or, who broke precedent by being named most valuable player two years in a row, led the team to Boston Garden and all the way to the semi-final round before being edged by Class-B champions, Winthrop. The last NHS hockey team for retiring jach Frank Marcoux finished in the middle of its league. They showed that with injury-ridden captain Frank Cappizzo in the line-up, they could play well enough to shut out the then un¬ defeated state champions, Walpole, 1-0! On Bob Whelan’s in¬ door track team our classmates had been dominating the Met League for three years. This year, led by Paul Lauro and Russ Cudmore, they piled up an all-division record of 397 points while remaining undefeated for the second straight year. The wrestling team, coached by Bill Genova, failed to win any match¬ es, but it was clear that losses were due more to inexperience than to lack of skill. In March, there was the Science Awards Assembly at which Dianne Pickering, William Phillips, and Arthur Lipman, last year’s first prize winner in chemistry, were awarded their pins for having participated in the Quarter-master Seminar. Bob Saunders and Jill Rierdan received plaques for their projects: " Bone Devel¬ opment’’ and " Generation and Application of White Noise and Audio Analgesia’’. In closing, the class would like to thank our wonderful of¬ ficers - Kenny Jue, George Batten, Ann Collins, and Michele Feldman - for their leadership. Most of all, we extend our sin¬ cere thanks to our class advisors Miss Ciannavei and Mr. Brans¬ field. Now the history of the class of 1963 is rapidly drawing to a close. Next year many of us will be at other schools furthering our education, but for many others this will be the education that will carry them through life. But regardless how our paths may diverge, the spirit of the class of 1963 will always bind us together. Jill Rierdan and David Berman GRADUATION DAY WELCOMING SPEECH Parents, Teachers, and Friends. It is my privilege, as President of the Class of 1963, to wel¬ come you here this evening to our Commencement Excercises. This is a great and wonderful moment for us all. As members of the Class of 1963, we have gone through many experiences together in our childhood and as we grew old¬ er and began to-mature. We have always been a close-knit group of students, something which very few classes can boast of. To¬ day is the climax of all our years together as friends and class¬ mates. The memories that many of us cherish and will always keep are every one — here with us now. I imagine you parents once experienced the same feelings as we, who are graduating now, feel on this momentous occasion. We hope that once again you may recall your graduation day, and that we may do the same in the future while watching our own children graduate. We are about to enter into a world of opportunity and pros¬ perity. Today there are not too many countries that without youth, there can be no future. In a few hours we, the Class of 1963, will go our separate ways, leaving life-long friends behind for perhaps only a few years, perhaps forever. But life does not stagnate; it moves in a steady, unabated flow. With the departure of old friends, comes the making of new ones. If we were to stand still and attempt in any way to withdraw from just one facet of life, then we would become lost in life ' s complicated process. The world is a challenge. Life is a challenge. Youth can be afraid of neither. I welcome you all in sharing with us, the Class of 1963, one of the most memorable and exhilarating events of our lives.

When we mention Cuba, their arises in our minds a picture of ships, planes, and Soviet Missiles which may or may not be there, ind in our imaginations, Egypt is a confused blending of ancient pyramids and a ruler who is determined to control that part of the •vorld. While our reason tells us that this conception of these Lands must be distorted, it is all too easy to base our judgements of _ country on the details w r e hear most frequently about it. In a similar manner, some people in other countries have ceveloped an image of the United States which is as equally far removed from reality as our vague nations of Cuba and Egypt. They visualize a people who are rich, money-mad, inconsiderate, end uncultured. The American people seem to consider them¬ selves infallible and innocent of any wrong doing. And yet, the Europeans and Asians and Africans have heard of incidents in¬ volving dark-skinned delegates to the United Nations. They have .‘.card of incidents in which Negro students were ridiculed and attacked when they tried to attend schools which had previously been all-White. Some of these " misconceptions” have a ring of truth to them. We shall never be immune to attacks on racial issues until we have eliminated the distrust, hatred, and misunderstanding which cause these embarrassing incidents. But we .are appalled at some of the other notions which roreigners entertain about us. Where did they get these ideas? A conference of foreign students held at Cornell expressed the opinion that the press is often at fault. They felt that many nations of the world, especially the African ones, are misrepre¬ sented by our press. They, in turn, receive a misleading picture of the United States as a land of self-righteous philosopher-kings who have a monopoly on the moral virtues of goodness and rightness. Impartial newscasts abroad with a minimum of self- righeousness will do far more for us than self-praise. The press must be made to realize the importance of accurate, uncolored, unprejudiced accounts of conditions, happenings, trends, and personalities. Two years ago, an American visiting in Sweden found teen¬ agers racing about in hot and drinking illegal liquor, while the nation as a whole was in a turmoil over several recent outbreaks of teen-age crime. These misguided teen-agers are no doubt little different from their counterparts in other countries, but what is shocking to as Americans is the fact that Swedish public was very much inclined to blame this situation on influences from the United States. These troublesome teen-agers, through records, radio. Western and gangster movies, and television serials, have received an image of America as a civilization of deserate emo¬ tions, flashy materialism, and excitement for its own sake. Social workers in Sweden acknowledge that there are several factors with¬ in Swedish society which are responsible for the development of teen-age crime, but they also maintain that the American movies, telivision programs, and radio are not a good influence. Children from lower class homes or homes where the parents do not take proper care of the children are most stimulated to imitate the movies and TV. This is not to say that the United States is responsible for juvenile delinquency in Sweden or anywhere else. However, it is disconcerting to think that the image of the United States is such that the first question asked of an American visitor is, " Do you know the Cartwright brothers?” The good influences of American movies and TV are not often exported because they do not sell so well as more violent scenes. However, the day will come when we must decide whether material profit is worth the sacrifice of our education. Another way in which outsiders form their opinions of the United States is through direct contact with individual Americans. The American tourist has long been the world’s most celebrated and, at the same time most laughed at gad-a-bout, and Americans, in general, have long been known for their fretfulness when cus¬ toms and manners differed from their own. The tables are now being turned as visitors from all over the world are pouring into the United States in response to a joint government-industry " Visit USA” campaign. The Parisian who was provoked because a roadside restaurant in Indiana did not serve wine is now better able to understand the annoyance of a American who can’t find a malted milk in Paris. And as they rush from city to city, museum to museum, trying to crowd as much as possible into their short visit, Europeans are beginning to realize that the American rushing through the Louvre in twenty minutes is not so uncultured as he seems. Thus we are improving our image abroad by helping others to know us as we really are and by destroying false impressions of us by promoting better understanding. Sally A. Hastings OUR SCIENTIFIC LEADERSHIP The word science almost immediately calls to mind the space exploits of this country, and in this respect the United States’ image is very good one. The United States is recognized as the leader in space exploration. Since October 1, 1957, when Russia orbited its firsuSputnik, we have forged ahead in both practical and purely scientific studies of space. Just a few months ago many of us were able to see television broadcasts from France and Eng¬ land which were transmitted via the Telstar satellite. Mariner II revealed more about the planet Venus than had been learned in all the previous years of man’s history. The United States is behine in manned space flights, but even here it has gained prestige be¬ cause of its policy of opening its flights to the public. America likes to think of itself as a practical nation, but it has made great contributions to pure science. Science is exper¬ iencing a terrific rate of advance and most of this is concentrated in the United States. 80% of the pure science in the West is being done in America. Californians like to point with pride to the fact that California has had more Nobel Prize winners than the Soviet Union. In fact, the scientific picture in the United States is so good that Britain is beginning to be concerned about the emigration of so many of its top scientific men, 12 % of its Ph.D’s, to America. However, the real American genius lies in applying science, in doing things, producing. In this it has no equals; the United States enjoyes unquestioned leadership in practical, applied tec¬ hnology. Charles Percy Snow has said of America, " You used primitive applied science quicker than anyone else to make num¬ bers of articles, and in the scientific Revolution of this genera¬ tion you made goods on a scale no one has before.” America has long had this capability of applying technology directly to practical needs. The Soviet Union has tried to imitate the United States here, but with little success, and this fact is recognized abroad, as illustrated by a story that was circulated in Europe years ago. An American labor delegation, traveling in Rus¬ sia, came to a huge, ultramodern factory. When asked who owned the factory, the workers replied that they did. " We won every¬ thing here,” they said. The American then asked whose were the few gleaming new cars parked near the factory. " Oh, the commis¬ sars use those, ’ was the reply. Next year, a Soviet delegation came to an American factory, and learned that a business tycoon, Johc Smith, owned it. They then turned to the great ocean of parke: cars nearby, stretching almost to the horizon, and asked who owne: them. " We do,” the workers replied. " You mean you ride in them? 4 the astonished Russians asked. " Well, who else?” was the reply. Mass production is just one example of the United State, genius for applying science to man. Such devices as the transistor and loser, inventions of American industry immediately foun: use in a great variety of areas, from weapons systems to medicine A loser was used to cure a retrical tumor only months after the loser was developed. However, it is in the field of food production that the United States’ image is most impressive. Farm technolor is extremely efficient in this country; 8% of the United Starts labor force produces all the food America needs, and more. As enormous surplus exists, and this is truly astonishing in a wor.d which is chronically hungry. Technolohy has given the Um:t: States a high standard of living and has flourished within :ha standard. It takes a certain economic level to support a technolog and thus there is an uneveness of technology between advance: and backward economies which can sometimes act unfavorably ■ the United States’ image. A Brazilian peasant might favor ne Communist Party in his country because he feels that it can gen only from the betterment of the peasants, while rich Ameriar interests can only lose if the peasant’s lot is improved. Nevenc:- less, thi s is a back-handed tribute to American technology; Ameri¬ can technology is too good. Technology has made America what it is, and the counrr.ii of the world seek to imitate the United States. Why this is so m very well explained by Arnold Toynbee: " For the great non-Werr- ern majority of the human race, being modern, scientific, ui democratic, are so many ways of going Western way of life? Ti answer is in the four words of proverb: ’Nothing succeds _M success.’ ” fl Mark Szpakowsk: 164 % THE FOREIGN AID Recently, the United States Government granted a huge foreign aid loan to Brazil. This grant was essential to help oppose communist groups operating in Brazil. However, our government gave this aid, fully realizing that most of the Brazilian people will never feel the influence of this loan. The Brazilian government will use the money for financing heavy industry to bolster the economy, not directly to raise the standard of living by buying food or providing better education. At the same time our govern¬ ment is trying to combat communism, communists have infiltrated much of the Brazilian Labor Party and at the time of the loan, an international meeting of Communist delegates was held in Rio de Janeiro with the permission of the Brazilian government. This incident does not decry the granting of foreign aid by our govern¬ ment; it rather strengthens the purpose of aid. Foreign Aid is subdivided into two types, military and economic, whose main purpose is to combat the spread of Com¬ munism in the Free World. Military aid is given to free nations not only to protect them from intimidation by a Communist force but also to keep order within the countries themselves where sub¬ versive groups wreak havoc with unstable governments. Remem¬ ber the aid the United States has sent to the Congo through the United Nations to bolster the weakened government? Economic aid is used to secure the image of America in for¬ eign countries, developing nations by raising the standard of liv¬ ing and creating educational facilities to make the people self- supporting. It tries to eliminate the ignorance, poverty, and dis¬ content upon which Communism thrives. Many nations look to the United States for this aid because they feel that as a rich nation, it is our duty to help them reach our level of wealth. The effectiveness of foreign aid is the subject of a report by the Clay Committee, a civilian committee headed by General Lu¬ cius Clay. In the report, the committee tells of two types of situa- tions which make the effectiveness of foreign aid doubtful. The first type is seen when we spend years supporting a country fin¬ ancially and economically, only to have the country rebuff us by turning Communist or by nationalizing all the industry and turn- CONTROVERSY ing Socialist. We are actually in a race in Central and South America, where we are trying to educate the people and raise the standard of living, before the governments change in make-up and force us to start all over again. The second problem in the effectiveness of foreign aid is caused by dishonest foreign governments. Most of these countries play the game of " Foreign Aid Blackmail”. The rules are simple: (1) Ask the United States for a huge loan with little intention of repaying it; (2) When they refuse you, tell them you will have to turn to Communist help and perhaps become entwined in the Communist system; (3) Take your money back home with you. These foreign leaders use the money for all aypes of projects, such as building a summer home or palace at some exotic spot or buying most of the land in the country to control economically as well as politicaly. Many suggestions have been made in the Clay report to make foreign aid more effective. I feel that one of the best proposals is to create a foreign aid institute where we could learn more about the customs and philosophies of the underdeveloped nations. With careful study we can best interpret the needs of these countries. Some of the peoples we deal with have a different idea of freedom from ours. We must be careful to change their beliefs make many resistants to change. Financial advisors could also be sent to decrease the amount of wasteful spending in these countries. Finally, I suggest that, more than money, we send more tractors, machinery, food, medicine, and technologists, not only to eliminate this wasteful spending, but also to bolster our own in¬ dustry by having the United States manufacture these items under government contract. Indeed, if we are to eliminate the poverty and discontent in many of these nations, we must support the American image by sending foreign aid. When education and happiness are brought to all the people of the world, they will surely be living with dem¬ ocratic ideals in a free society. Roger B. True 165 AMERICAN YOUTH OVERSEAS Of course, the Crossroaders have run into many problems. The biggest ones have been a " cultural shock”, which comes with an absence of all familiar things and customs, and illness caused by unfamiliar and unpalatable food and unsanitary conditions. The social customs in some African nations were very rigid. For ex¬ ample, one government official who walked on sacred ground re¬ ceived a spear in the back. America’s segregation problems has been of great interest to Africans who have seen it used as propaganda not only by the Russians, but also by the colonizing French, to show that their brand of imperialism is not so bad after all. For the Crossroaders, living in Africa is quite an experience, for the whites become the minority and the Negroes the majority. Negro members of the Crossroads group have found great difficulity in " explaining” segregation to the Africans. The Peace Corps tries to improve world conditions, to help foreign countries meet their need for skilled manpower. For ex¬ ample, when the British pulled out of Tanganyika, Peace Corps technicians filled the gap. Members attempt to make friends at the grass roots, for it has been stated that we are winning the governments and losing the people. The Peace Corps does not aim to revolutionize the world, not to carry the " white man’s burden” in " underdeveloped countries.” To make the Peace Corps as independent of pressure as pos¬ sible, it has been kept separate from our foreign aid programs. Peace Corps running expenses per year, according to Senator Hu¬ bert Humphrey, are less than the cost of firing one Atlas missile, even one that does not work. It is hard to keep the cold war out of the question, but the Peace Corps is not there to stop Communism, although people say that if we had really wanted to help mankind, we would have done this long ago. The Peace Corps works only on projects that are requester by the host country, and that meet certain specifications. However these are sometimes carried out in cooperation with other organ.- zations, such as mission groups, CARE, or International Volun¬ tary Services. Corpsmen work on projects in health, education agriculture, and rural development. Peace Corpsmen are door , not advisors. The Peace Corps has sent English teachers to the Phil¬ ippines, community development workers to Chile, agriculture workers to St. Lucia, teachers to Ghana and Nigeria, nurses, doc¬ tors, and laboratory technicians to Malaya, and public heaH- workers to Thailand. As you can see, the Peace Corps wants people with spec::.. talents or experience. However, many of the projects do not re¬ quire a college education. In fact less than half of the first 4800 applicants had completed college. Peace Corpsmen undergo intense training, for the direcrcrs of the Peace Corps realize that the American is the final produr: of centuries of civilization and technology, while the African. ::r example, is the child of stagnation and colonialism. The America will have to spend all his time with his African counterpart, beux a friend, a teacher, a leader, a critic, and, above all, a student. Hr must be careful, for he will be judged wherever he goes. The po¬ tential for frustration is high, and the volunteers came to real_:c that they are making only a small dent in the problems and wj not be around to see the results. Work overseas is, nevertheless, a rewarding life for the young people who represent America in the improvement of world. We all should certainly be proud of them, and I know tine students of Natick High will have much to contribute to the sa_-ie goal, using their talent to spread the cause of freedom. I Linda Darling 166 POLITICAL AND MILITARY INFLUENCES Last year, when Robert F. Kennedy was touring South East Asia, he spoke to a group of college students in Indonesia. When he had finished, one student rose and questioned him on the United States economy, describing it as " monopolistic capitalism ’. Over one-half the audience erupted into applause. Mr. Kennedy then asked, " You are well-educated. What is it that you understand to be going on in the United States that fits this description? " The students sat down. Mr. Kennedy then addressed the rest of the audience. There was no response. Later, shortly before he was to leave Indonesia, he held a seminar for thirty students, five of them Communists. They also called the United States colonialistic and imperialistic. Mr. Kenne¬ dy then asked one student, a Communist, about Hungary and Ber¬ lin. The response - " Don’t discuss detail. " After the meeting, five students came to Mr. Kennedy and told him of their agreement with him. He asked why they hadn’t spoken up at the seminar. " You just don’t say that sort of thing among students. ”, was the reply. Upon his return to the United States, Mr. Kennedy talked to several exchange students from South America. He found that the children of South America were being taught about the nine¬ teenth century United States with the great monopolies and trusts, and this was the impression that they were left with. Obviously, this shows that the United States is failing in an area where Communists are succeeding. The image that the majority of a young country receives from the leading nations of the world will tend to push that coun¬ try towards either democracy or communism. Thus, we can see the importance that the image of a country holds. Although some people in foreign nations know and recog¬ nize sports or entertainment figures, they receive the real image of a nation predominantly through its leader and his policies. Politically and militarily, President John F. Kennedy has greatly affected our image abroad. On the national level, his decisions in regard to the steel industry and the problem of in¬ tegration have demonstrated to the other nations of the world the attitude of the United States toward many problems that they themselves must face either now, or in the future. On the international level, President Kennedy has boosted our image to the highest point that it has achieved since the end of World War II. His action during the Cuban Crisis startled, shocked and changed the outlook of many people. Ever since World War II we had been rather sleepy. The Communists had started to move and we didn’t seem to be able to stop them. In 1949 Nato was formed to stop the advance in Europe. It succeeded. Then Seato and the OAS were formed. This was fine, but the people of the world were still seeing, hearing, and feeling the Communist march. The United States wasn’t doing anything, at least, anything that was being effective against this Communist barrage of propaganda. In 1956 the United States suffered a blow that did untold damage to our world image. This was Hungary. Radio Free Europe had told the people of Hungary that the L nited States would support them if they revolted. The Hungar¬ ians knew they had no chance against Russian tanks and artillery, but with United States aid, they felt they had a chance. They revol¬ ted and the Russians withdrew, waiting for the United States reaction. Hungary pleaded with us for help. Then a reply was sent, " We will give you twenty million dollars worth of aid in cotton. " The Hungarians were crushed by the news. Then Russians came back and retook Hungary. The Cuban Crisis has restored some of the confidence foreign nations once held in us, for we finally had stood up and told the Russians, " That’s enough! Now get out. " It proved that we were willing to fight for what we felt and knew was right, and that the Communists could not do whatever they pleased. Now that Russia realizes that we will not sit still while thev 0 try to overrun us, they have become a little more wary. The big¬ gest problem that they, along with the United States, must now face is nuclear weapons. It has been estimated that by 1970, twen¬ ty nations will have obtained nuclear weapons. This fact, which the Russians are completely aware of, is pushing the United States and Russia to a nuclear power agreement, for we both realize that with so many nations gaining weapons, only a major disaster could follow and possible the end of the world. Thus, our only hope lies in a test ban and disarmament treaty. Once we achieve this, we will be hoping that our image is strong enough to influence the other nations of the world into following our example. Therefore, both politically and military our aim should be to acheive this test ban and nuclear disarmanent agreement, tor if this world is to survive this seems to be our only hope for a true peace.
