THE CLASS FLOWER
As we go forward let us ever bear in mind
the fact that others before us have overcome
great obstacles. We too may encounter like
jeopardies to future success and happiness. But
we have been prepared by faithful teachers to
face these difficult situations. Let us manifest
those qualifications now. Perhaps the tumul-
tuous world we enter at this time is more fla-
grantly ruthless than present day history re-
cords. However, let us display our worth and
take up our responsibility unfiinchingly. Pro-

We, the Class of 1941, dedicate this-our

and conscientious secretary to our principal. She
has constantly lightened the burden of our cares
by assuming responsibilities not her own, she has
truly gained our confidence and our admiration

Members of the Class of 1941:
In these crucial and momentous days when many nations, through no
wish or action of their own, are engulfed in a most terrifying and titanic
conflict, the outcome of which no man can foresee, bringing destruction
and death to innocent mothers, fathers, and children alike, I must remind
you it is not enough for us, living in a land of peace and plenty, to pour out
our hearts in sincere gratitude for the many blessings We receive and en-
joy. Laying aside all selfishness, jealousies and hatreds, we must prove
ourselves through a high sense of patriotism and deep and abiding love for
our country true and loyal Americans on all occasions.
As you leave forever this school where you have been taught by
patient and sympathetic teachers the lessons of life and their significance,
to enter life's career in a sphere of wider activity and greater responsibili-
ties, it is my hope and belief you will measure up fully to this level remem-
bering your obligations to your country as well as your privileges.
And now, fellow travelers in a world which sadly needs revitalization,
I wish you lasting peace and true happiness.
CHARLES P. SLADE
Members of the Class of 1941:
It is a pleasure to have again the opportunity of ex-
tending to the members of the graduating class my best
wishes as well as as those of all connected with the man-
agement ofthe schools. We have enjoyed working with
you during the past twelve years and now that it is time
for you to leave the Naugatuck schools, some for further
study and others for the world of business, we once more
express the hope that your future work will be as interest-
ing and as profitable as the years here have been. Where-
ever you go and whatever your future activities may be,
our interest in you will continue and you may ever be as-
sured of advice and assistance should they be required.
Each year the world situation becomes more compli-
cated and unsettled. Each graduating class faces a con-
fused and changing economic and social order. This June,
even our Democratic way of life appears to be in grave
danger. All of these rapidly changing conditions make it
difficult to decide upon a vocation or a career in which the
ability of the individual may be used to the best advan-
tage. As you face the future in such a situation, may I
express the hope that you will continue to follow the
course that has been outlined for you by your teachers and
by your parents. Only through your efforts and your atti-
tudes can we preserve and carry forward those cherished
ideals which this nation has guarded for so long a time.

Life is not meant to be cruelg nor is it cruel. It only appears so to that
kind of outlook on life which views actions and incidents illiberally. How-
ever unconscious such an attitude may be, human nature, at its best, delights
in pessimism. Now and then even the person who has least occasion to
worry finds in his disposition the tendency to consider problems with mis-
giving. To regard the world as evil is to err. What ever sorrow, illness,
or disaster we find on this earth is a trial of strength. We know that we
mature only through stern and constant endeavor. ln this free land, one is
not born to shun hardship or dire responsibility. With these it is the way
of the world to expose the flaws and defects of its denizens. In this way the
strength, power, and restraint of the individual are proved.
If we are endued with the resolute will necessary in this competitive
world, we shall not fail. An assured, well-ordered, industrious mind will
sustain us throughout every vicissitude as life varies between happiness
and sorrow. For life in this present day atmosphere is being beseiged by
hazardous machines and people. Nations go hungry in this wordly depres-
sion. An assured mind must sustain us. A liberal mind will sustain us in
prosperity and assuage the humiliations that embitter adversity. Anguish
of the spirit, like ills of the flesh, can not exceed the measure set by nature,
and few are the actual ills that even approach that measure. Thus, the
mind vested on this earth in the imperturbable calm of its pristine abode,
may look forth in peace upon the troublous periphery of flesh.
That soul is not worthy of its nature, nor does that heart deserve
fulfilment that can not abide without discomforture and persevere un-
blenching. Had Aeneas in those years of numerous temptations and har-
bourless seas weakened in travail, should he ever have founded Rome?
-that imperishable abode of the human spirit even now after untold cen-
turies of unimaginable desolation. The soul of Aeneas was firm.
With a similar rigid attitude, you and I peer into the future. Worry
that may approach us will best be over-powered by the application of these
In the years of study guided by a liberal education, a solid foundation
has been established in our youth. A foundation upon which honor is built
high above petty anguish.
If during sickness in the on-coming years, recovery of health seems
far distant, remember, this is a trial of strength! If desperation over-
comes us for want of employment, firmness is necessary. If there be others,
weaklings with an irresolute will, they will proclaim, "What happens is
meant to happen." A fatalism not to be cultivated, the theory of a sophist.
Things do not merely happen, they are caused. The drowsy and the lazy
abide by this motto merely to avoid excess travail. The malicious advocate
this theory so to inveigle the simple. '
Hardship is known to us all. Suffering has been endured. With an
assured knowledge of righteousness and a lofty background in education,
we have been educated so as to persevere unblenching toward our wordly
objective, sustained by our spiritual life, without which we should founder.

With Apologies to H. H.
Set us Where the sun doth parch the green,
Or where his beams do not dissolve the ice,
In temperate heat where he is felt and seen:
In presence 'prest of people, mad or wiseg
Set us in high or yet in low degree,
In clearest sky or where clouds thickest be,
Set us in heaven or in earth
In hill, or dale, or in the foaming floodg
We'll bear the torch of liberty for aye
And never break the faith entrusted us
Our sacred promise made,-we'll carry on!

THE FOOTBALL SEASON
This year the ever ambitious football squad of Niaugatuck High
School had a slow start. Though zealous and well-inftentioned, the of-
fensive power was lacking. In quick succession, defeat resulte-d from
encounters with Woodrow Wilson, Derby, Wilby, Torringt-on and Shel-
ton. In the last three struggles, the offensive gained due to the untiring
efforts of Naugy's co-captains Robert McDermott, Clayton Murphy and
As always, with the indomitable Naugy spirit, the team looked with
the expectancy of victory toward the next game. This time it was a
reality and the Garnet and Gray cornered the Blue Crosby: Score 18-6.
Although powerful West Haven checked with great difiiculty the strug-
gling Naugy squad, Naugatuck again showed that it had resistance by
overwhelming Stratford. Then came the most spectacular game of the
season, the Thanksgiving Day classic, against Ansonia. Naugy bitterly
repelled Ansonia's attacks and often struck deep into Purple territory.
Several times Naugy was on the verge of making a touchdown but the
fates were unsmiling. Ansonia took the lead and never lost it until the
final score, 14-0, was chalked up.
In this and throughout a dismal season, Naugy showed versatility
in attack and steadfastness in defense though vi-ctory eluded her team.

THE BASKETBALL TEAM
THE BASKETBALL SEASON
Naugy 45, Hartford 88
The first game of the season, played at the Y. M. C. A., boomed with
the usual Naugy spirit. O'Connor sparked the Naugatuck attack in the
first half with four field goals and Garlenski kept the home fires burning
in the second half, with six goals from the floor, to assure the defeat of
Hartford. Thus opened victoriously another great Naugy High season.
Naugy 49, New Haven 12
In the second start a confident five from New Haven State Teachers'
College poured into the Y. M. C. A. only to be overpowered by a stronger
although smaller Naugy team. Durette and Garlenski joined in leading
the Naugy offense with twelve points apiece. While Swiderski at guard
bottled up the Professors who scored twelve points.
Naugy 39, Seymour 14
With a smashing offense hitting on all five, Naugy lashed out in the
Y. gym for its third victory in three starts, overcoming Seymour, thirty-
nine to fourteen. Garlenski again le-d the attack with sixteen points,
O'Connor followed close behind with an even dozen.
Naugy 48, Alumni 34
In the fourth game at the Y, before a large crowd, a sharpshooting
Naugy team out-classed its former stars by the formidable score of forty-
eight to thirty-four.
Naugy 61, Warren Harding 44
Naugatuck easily beat the Warren Harding "Presidents" for the
fifth consecutive Greyhound victory of the year. Of the sixty-one points
scored by Naugatuck, Garlenski came out on top with nineteen, closely
followed by O'Connor and Durette with fifteen apiece. The Greyhounds
were now working in complete unison, and their cooperation was re-
fiected in the score.
Naugy 50, Ansonia 38
Leading Ansonia at all times, Naugy chalked-up its second Valley
League victory, making the score for Naugy six wins and no losses. Al-
though the team from down the valley fought bravely, it lost eventually.
Naugy. led by Captain O'Connor with fifteen points, was really throwing
them through the hoop.
Naugy 83, Torrington 37
Crippled by the loss of little "Orky" Garlenski early in the game
Naugy lost to Torrington in Naugatuck. As the score indicates it was
a close game, finally decided in the only overtime period of the year.
Naugy 35, Crosby 29
Still smarting from their defeat at the hands of Torrington, Naugy
turned the tide against Crosbv's hoonsters. Garlenski again led the
Naugy team with ten points while Kelly managed to keep his team in
Naugy 42, Wilby 38
Naugatuck beat t.he Wilby Wildcats. traditional rivals of the Grey-
hounds, in a close game, thus making their league record four wins and
one loss. Wilby had come down the valley rather confidently but this
game sent them back with a somewhat chastened spirit.
Page Eighty Three
Naugy 36, Hillhouse 37
Coming from behind, a powerful Hillhouse team downed the iight-
ing little Naugy five, thirty-seven to thirty-six in the Hillhouse gym.
Naugy 24, Torrington 50
Torrington, on their own floor, held the fighting Naugy team with
a last half, thirty-two point rally. The Big Red held Naugy's team to
twenty-four points, as they chalked up fifty. This was probably Naugy's
worst defeat of the season.
Naugy 58, Hillhouse 52
Carrying the attack to Hillhouse on their own floor, the Greyhounds
avenged an earlier defeat, at their hands, by the score of fifty-eight to
Naugy 36, Ansonia 26
"Orky" Garlenski led a hard hitting Greyhound team with sixteen
points to trim Ansonia High on their own floor, thirty-six to twenty-six.
Naugy proved one defeat couldn't keep them down.
Naugy 54, Crosby 36
Leading all the way, Naugy downed Crosby High in the last home
game 'of the season by the score of fifty-four to thirty-six. Although
O'Connor was lost on personals in the last of the third period, the Grey-
hound quintet kept on rolling up the score on the boys from Waterbury.
Naugy 41, Warren Hwrdfing 29
After traveling to Bridgeport in one of the worst rainsztorms on
record, Naugy proved that their spirits couldn't be dampened and pro-
ceeded to beat' Warren Harding forty-one to twenty-nine. This game
proved costly to the Greyhounds. It put "Ace" Durette out of the line-up
with ia knee injury and Bob McDermott with a badly cut eyelid.
Naugy 38, New Haven 39
In th-e annual game with Commercial High, played at New Haven,
a hard pressed Commercial team defeated the Greyhounds thirty-nine
to thirty-eight in one of the closest games of the season. With less than
a minute to go, Widuch dropped in a basket from just-outside the foul
line. Naugy was only one point behind. A basket in the next thirty
seconds would have won the game, but this was not to be. Commercial,
took the ball off side, and did everything but sit on it in their desperate
attempt to "freeze" the ball. The precious seconds ticked away leaving
Commercial the victor by one lone point.
Naugy 47, Wilby 68
In the final game of the season played before a capacity crowd in
the Wilby gym, the Wilby Wildcats bowled over the injury ridden Grey-
hounds siixty-eight to forty-seven. The closeness of this important game
made it one of the thrillers of the season. Putting up a game ight, with
Swiderski attempting to turn the tide in the back court and McDermott,
Garlenski, and O'Connor, in the fore court, Naugy finished the last game
of the season.
Because of injuries to Naugy's fighting five, Coach Peter J. Foley
decided that he would give the boys a hard earned rest and not make
any attempt to enter the State Tournament at New Haven. This decision
met with the approval of those who eventually realized that it would
work out for the best interests of the team.

A LIGHT ON BEACON HILL

THE SENIOR PLAY
P R O C E D E N T E S
Traditionally, toward the close of September we launched our study of
dramatic arts. "And speak the speech I pray thee" was the elusive goal we
all aspired toward. We ran the gamut of emotions from merriment to
pathos, from tragedy to delicate innuendo. On the Friday preceding our
classic football encounter with Crosby, "A touchdown, a touchdown, we
have won the game"-proved a good luck omen, for our boys brought back
victory to the school.
The cast for our Christmas play, "A Light on Beacon Hill," was
chosen. Norma Widen was the lead, ably supported by Regina Kelly, Irv-
ing Nixon, and Phil Jenson. The play was enthusiastically received and
the youthful actors amply gratified.
As wintry days marked the calendar, original skits, short plays and
melodramas were presented. The side-splitting antics of Jensen and
Company, in feminine array, with pill box hats of variegated plaid candy
boxes and pinkish tin -cans tied coquettishly by chin ribbons, displayed our
versatility in college circle class. Not to be outdone, Commercial B with
the team of Felix Zebrakus plugged powerfully for Granger tobacco
and portrayed historical sketches galore. General class went melodra-
matic, with hair raising murder skits, written by Jack Sullivan, in which
steel-long knives were drawn and brazen revolvers broke the classic
air. The Mighty Algren Art Players flourished in scientific class, where
they wielded wild daggers and otherwise indulged in gory battle scenes.
Commercial A presented scrub women and queens, Huckleberry Finn
and Jesse James, and also, Mr. Hunter, star of our class play, "Crab
Apple." For Herman Grossman stood head and shoulders above his con-
The senior play is now in rehearsal. It is a Yale opus, having been

With money rather plenteous, we are hoping for a stellar financial as
