During our four years sojourn in N. A. H. S., we believe that our Class has established a goal at which all future classes will aim. The class of 1940 has requested us to carry on the " Northern Light " which they started. We have accepted their challenge. We, in turn, hope that the following classes will expand and improve this 1941 issue and 7 firmly establish the tradition of a senior yearbook. £ f For four years the members of our class have participated in various activi- ties and have established many enviable records. As our last official act in North Attleboro High we have compiled this year book to show to all, the records which the boys and girls of ' 41 have rung up. Although we are going out into a troubled world, we feel that our association with N. A. H. S., its students, and its teachers will stand us in such good stead that we may look forward with confidence to our ultimate success. 4 The Seniors 1941 GIgAA OjfffioeSiA fe.

Ill I ' hjIliH ll««e and llnnald Welch It is a well known fact that all senior classes claim to be the best class. While we will not go so far as to say that, we WILL say that we are the most intelligent and appreciated body of seniors that this charitable institution has ever had the pleasure of donating diplomas to. My worthy colleague and I happened upon this institution accidentally and have tried to live up to its high standards. We shall go back over our childhood so that our underclass- men may fully understand and appreciate how we have benefited this vener- able building by our presence, and so that they might see how worthy we are of those valuable documents that shall be given us on the eve of our de- parture. The day that we entered high school was not like any other day. The sun shone brightly and the warm breezes whispered their encouragement to us as we stumbled into the vast auditorium. We all took front seats so that we might get a good look at this boogie man that everyone told us about; but we had not been seated long when a herd of big brutes came in and told us we had reserved seats in the rear. Of course we couldn ' t do anything but meekly troop back to the reserved seats, because they were giants and we were just beginning to grow. That old boogie man turned out to be our good friend, Mr. Mott, who has been our best friend and advisor for four years. He really is nice, too. After we got settled we proceeded to hold a class meeting at which we elected Ruel Smith, president; Donnie Welch, vice-president; Bernice Marlow, secretary; and Walter Bradstreet Clark, treasurer. Naturally, as freshmen, we held no social functions during that year and we were surprised to find that all we could do was to attend other dances, given by the upperclassmen, and act as meek as little mice, for we were only small fry. Our freshman year was not an eventful one except for one incident when Ralph Hall made all three varsity athletic teams. Our sophomore year was almost as uneventful, the only difference being that this year we could heckle the freshmen. In the election of 1939, Ruel was again elected president; Mary McAdams, vice-president; Hazel Wilmore, secretary; and Bucky Clark again took over the role of treasurer just to see if he could really make a little money for us this time. In the world of sports, Roy Phipps joined Ralph Hall on the gridiron, and remained there throughout the rest of his high school career. Bill Precourt, also, contributed to the class ' s athletics when he made the baseball team. Our junior year proved to be more eventful than the past years. Our election took place a few weeks after school opened, and we elected Ralph Hall to succeed Ruel Smith as president. lanet Thompson took over the posi- tion of vice-president. Milly Woodbury became secretary, and Donnie Welch was elected treasurer to see if he could better our financial status. Page Nineteen THE NHItTHEHN LltlHT We were well represented on the football field by Ralph Hall, Roy Phipps, Jimmy Wing, Ruel Smith and Larry Kennedy. Hall and Precourt did the honors on the baseball and basketball teams. After patiently waiting for two years, we succeeded in having a very suc- cessful Junior Prom which helped us along financially. We also gave other dances but they proved to be only for the entertainment of the underclassmen. Then finally came that great day in September, when we returned as SENIORS to our favorite hang-out — old N. A. H. S. The teachers were overjoyed at having such an interesting body of seniors such as we, to help along, so they buckled down to work with grim looks and brave smiles. This year was most eventful and successful. Our election took place and we elected Ruel Smith, president; Janet Thompson, vice-president; Mildred Woodbury, secretary; and " figure juggler " Welch was again elected treasurer. This election will long be remembered because Smitty was elected for a THIRD TERM. The pigskin heroes for this year were Ralph Hall, Ruel Smith, Roy Phipps, Jimmy Wing, Larry Kennedy, John Roberts, Jimmy Messier, Clayton Dietz and Bucky Clark. The same players starred on the baseball and basketball teams as in the past year with one addition, Jimmy Messier, to the baseball team. The social year started with a Senior-Freshman Hop and ended with a Mexican Dance. This dance in the minds of everyone was the most colorful and successful dance ever to be held in old N. A. H. S. These dances along with the senior play, under the able direction of Miss Erving and the coopera- tion of an excellent cast, added greatly to our treasury. The intelligence of our class is shown by the number of representatives that we had on the debating team. The members were as follows: Hazel Wil- more, Jeanne McQuaid, William Bishop, and Dwight Thomas. The number of fine musicians in the class of 1941 will also be missed in the band and orchestra. This year Mr. Bronson is losing Marian Fisher, Anne Houghton, Bucky Clark, John Mason, Alfred Chabot, Leo Ringuette, Juliette and Yvette Labrie, Dottie Grosse, Dick Wall, Kenneth Fisler, Buddy Frobel, Arthur Carufel and Mary Kennedy. This year our class is proving its individualism by wearing caps and gowns, which is something that has never been done before in our hgh school. During our four years we have come to know and appreciate our teachers and we take this opportunity to thank them sincerely for their patience and perseverance, which has really been appreciated in spite of all the grumbling we have done. How we will miss this dear old school! So it is with DEEP regret we bid you all — Farewell! 4 ?— Page Twenty —19 THE IMHKTHEKIM LIGHT 41 — Qlali.

Clurl. Bucky — After an abbreviated course in the science of prophetical reasoning, or the art of Divine Inspiration, Ginny and I will venture to foretell the future of our honorable classmates with the help of our inevitable and ever-present spheres of crystal magic. Look there ' s a little fellow creeping along that dirt road at Coral Lake. It ' s Melvie Andrews. I guess he lives down there now. Ginny — I see Willy Baxter ' s tousled head bending over a drafting board and he is almost boss now at Brown Sharpes. Bucky — I see a huge stack of test tubes fuming and smoking and in their midst — I see BEGGSIE — It ' s Louis Beggs, the super scientist. Ginny — I can ' t see her but I know it ' s Connie Benjamin by her soprano trill — and I hear a rhapsody, s ' help me — Bucky — There ' s Harold Berg still bothering Miss McGivney. He ' s her insurance collector now. Ginny — Look at this — Little Ed ' s doing the technical work and Big John is doing the heavy work in Bielecki ' s machine shop on Watery Hill. Bucky — Here is Bill peeking through a pair of his father ' s frames. Bish is still studying for his M.D. Ginny — Lillian Bohannon is still pleasing Mr. Hartwell with her bright answers. She is his assistant now. Bucky — Ruth Brown is now buyer at Grant ' s and they have promised to send her to New York next year if she is good. Ginny — I can ' t see Corrine Carr but I ' m sure that she is still whispering secrets in the Great Beyond. Bucky — I see Archie Carufel playing the bass fiddle and saving his pennies so he can take another trip to Canada. Ginny — Bob Chabot finally got drafted and A1 is blowing his bugle in Co. I waking him up in the morning — Bucky — you should hear the terrific quarrels they are still having. Bucky — I can hardly see Yvonne Chabot but I can hear distant bells ringing at the convent. Ginny — A1 Cloutier still has that managing urge. He ' s managing the New York Giants. Bucky — I see Pris Coburn is still blocking sweaters for the Evans Case boys. It ' s her busines along with various things. Ginny — John Craig is still tinkering with cars but it ' s his profession now. Bucky — Claire DeRenzo is making the spaghetti and meat balls at the Rome Cafe. Page Twenty-four 41 — —19 THE IMOliTHEItN LIOHT Ginny — Red Deware is in the army now with the rest of the boys.

Ginny — I see Franny Fish but I don ' t want to look — he ' s swimming at the Reser- voir. Ginny — There ' s Margaret Fisher busily knitting a new pair of " woolies " . It ' s pretty cold in Canada.

Bucky — Bud Frobel and Dotty Grosse leave the farm every month and drive down town in the Ford. Bucky — Cliff and Ken Fuller are playing pool — I see Janice VERY dimly in the background.

It is Pat Grimaldi but he is anxiously waiting for his year to be up so he can go into contracting with his dad. Bucky — I detect a guy with his head stuck under the hood of a tractor. It ' s Farmer Roberts, of course. Ginny — " Rough and Tough " Smitty has realized his dream.

Bucky — I ' ve the same thing in my crystal with Janet, who finally got her license, speeding up and down the road known as ' ' The Venus Skyway” be- cause of its beautiful curves. Ginny — Hilly is manager of the Falls Tigers and Sprague is pluggin ' away at first base. They have drawn the biggest crowds the Falls has seen yet. Page Twenty-five THE NOKTHEKN LIIIIIT Bucky — Tony Velletri is now bottling soda instead of delivering it. Marie King is acting as his PRIVATE secretary.

Bucky — Madam LaRosee has set up a dancing school and is giving private lessons to the " frosh " . Ginny — I see swarms and more swarms of papers with Ed O ' Neil under them.

Bucky — Everything looks fuzzy — It ' s Miss Houghton and she ' s struggling furi- ously with her kindergarten — and she ' s the one who can do it. Ginny — Bernice is still working in Mr. Mott ' s office but a promotion looks probable if the innocent little freshmen don ' t mess things up as usual. Bucky — Roy Phipps has completed his plans for that special little love-nest and he has half the town ' s highway department at work building the foun- dation and landscaping the surrounding country side. I see Bill Mc- Carthy slaving away at the controls of a tractor while Johnnie Mason stands by to make sure that Bill won ' t injure himself permanently, by working too hard. Both these boys practically run the department now. Ginny — All I can see is a blur — no — it ' s a streak. It ' s Tommy Leary in his new car. I think it has retractable fenders for driving in traffic. Bucky — Bill Precourt is one of ' ' Dose bums " , he plays first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Ginny— There ' s Mary Kennedy, the only woman publisher of a comic maga- zine using her characteristic wit to make her book one of the best. Bucky — Look-Here ' s a little bookworm squirming toward Marilynn Waterman ' s latest best-seller. I guess it will be pretty good eating for the little fel- low. Ginny — Helen Wojciechowski ' s height has finally proved valuable. She ' s do- ing a fine job modeling at Anne Sullivan ' s dress shop. Rita Ouelette and Juliette Labrie are also employed in the same shop. Bucky — I see an M.D. ' s shingle hanging on one of those newer houses in town — Look it says, " D. H. Thomas, M.D. " . Office hours: 4:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. " Oh yes — There ' s my old friend Hazel ably assisting the doctor in his numerous operations. Page Twenty-six 41 — —19 THE INIIIHTHEKIM LICHT Ginny — Ah, I see an artist ' s studio. Yvette Labrie is in one corner talking to her private secretary, Millie Woodbury.

Bucky — Pris Lacourciere is assisting a painless dentist who at this moment is doing quite a job on Aggie Slowey the " Queen of Sloweyville " . Ginny — Now that all the boys are in the army, I see Helen Rose streaking to- wards Pawtucket in her father ' s newest jitney. Bucky — Barbara Swallow finally ended up in the army. She ' s having quite a time as a hostess at Camp Devens. Ginny — Helen Lykus liked high school so much that she ' s working i n the lunch- room. Boy, what menus they turn out now. Bucky — I see Janet Ryder still running around with Johnnie. As a sideline she works as a medical secretary. Ginny — I see a bird. Bucky — No it ' s a plane. Ginny — It ' s superman Kennedy. He ' s a professional schoolboy now in his third school. He went to Tufts, Yale, and finally to Brown (much against his will). He ' s quite a " football hero " . Bucky — Things are getting pretty dim and cloudy, but I ' d recognize your voice anywhere, Gin. Maybe it ' s the smoke of the lab that makes it hard to see — anyway I know the man that you ' re helping is the fellow from Brown who chased me and " the boys " away. Ginny — That ' s funny Bucky. Things are getting dim in my crystal too. But nevertheless, I see you in a ' 31 Ford now, your ' 30 wore out traveling the road to Attleboro. The vision is fading and a nurse is in the deep dark background. It looks like Hazel, Bucky. That ' s a good omen! All of my prophecies come true. Ginny — I think we ' ve seen all our old classmates questionably bright futures. The vision is fading — My crystal ' s a blank! Bucky — So ' s your mind! Ginny — It would be of unending value for us to take an extended course in the art of prying unjustifiedly into the Great Beyond. If any of these prophe- cies turn out right, please come to us and we ' ll contact your futures for a VERY slight fee!

Page Thirty-six Athletics L 19 THE NHRTHEHN LIGHT 41 tf-ootbaU With but one defeat to mar an otherwise unblemished record for the past four years, the North Attleboro High School football team has achieved a suc- cess which stands as a testimonial to the ability of head coach Raymond Yates, and his equally reliable assistants, Charles Wettergreen and Roland Chandler. As freshman, many of the boys in our class held down positions on the junior High and Freshman teams. But Ralph Hall began his football career one step ahead by being the only freshman to earn a regular berth on the varsity. Leroy Phipps made the squad next year, along with Ralph Hall, who played his second year, to make two sophomores on the varsity. In our junior year we were well represented on the gridiron. Lawrence Kennedy at guard and James Wing and Ruel Smith in the backfield were the new additions to the team. Ralph Hall and Roy Phipps, the veterans, con- tinued to star as quarterback and center, respectively. In our senior year, the team was sparked with seven seniors. Though play- ing their first year for N. A. H. S., John Roberts and James Messier played their positions at end and halfback like veterans. Phipps at center and Ken- nedy at guard played aggressive ball all year, building a practically invincible line. Jimmy Wing, the speedster, continued to thrill the fans with his spec- tacular runs. Ruel Smith, with his lengthy punting, was again a valuable member of the squad. Ralph Hall bringing to a close his fourth spectacular year as a member of the varsity, was elected captain of both the N. A. H. S. squad and the All-Bristol County Team. The job of managing the undefeated 1941 Red Rocketeers was well handled by Albert Cloutier. Page Thirty-eight —19 41 — THE NUIITHEIIIM LI (i HT Qa4Jzetba.il True to the standards of all North Attleboro High School teams, our basket- ball teams have displayed the same fight and willingness-to-win, symbolic of all Red and White teams. What was lacking in ability was more than made up for in fighting spirit and sportsmanship. In 1938 the team played a creditable season but the campaigns of the next three years were somewhat on the poorer side. Some of the seniors who starred in the 1941 season were Captain Ralph Hall, William Precourt, and substitute, Kenneth Fuller, who saw much well- handed service. An Inter-class Basketball League was organized and many games were played between the classes, at the end of the regular basketball season Many other seniors besides the regular members of the basketball squad enjoyed these games. Page Thirty-nine 19 41 THE NORTHERN LIGHT feaieball Our baseball team of the past four years has proved itself worthy of praise. In both victory and defeat the team has remained true to its standards of fair play and sportsmanship. Playing an above-the-average brand of base- ball, the team has brought to light many brilliant athletes, sending them to larger teams. Some of the graduates, largely responsible for the team ' s suc- cess and popularity are Jimmy Messier, Bill Precourt, Richard Sprague, and the ever-present Ralph Hall who was elected captain for the second consecu- tive year. Elmer Dillon, before finding it necessary to leave the team, held down a regular position.

Ads were solicited from nearby colleges, stores, and factories. This year, the co-editors were Janet Thompson and Lawrence Kennedy. Other members of the staff included Jean Ralston, Esther McArthur, Marilynn Waterman, Albert Cloutier, Ann Hough- ton, Yvette Labrie, Janet Ryder, Constance Dyer, and Ralph Hall. The class of ' 41 hopes that the future graduating classes will keep up the fine record as we have endeavored to. Page Forty-two —19 mc. THE MIIITHEItN LIliHT 41 — Red Cap Staj For many years, the Red Cap has been one of the monthly features of school life. The students look forward whole-heartedly to each edition of the paper. Our paper is proud to be one of the few which are self-supporting and free from ads. This year, the co-editors were Bernice Marlow, and Roger Sher- man. There were twelve other members, two of whom were seniors, Martha LaRosee and Larry Kennedy. Now that we are leaving we hope that the Red Cap will continue to prosper according to the tradition of the past. Page Forty-three 19 imc THE IMOKTHEKIV ElliHT 41 Maj iA. CUee ileade i4. —19 THE NOHTHEHN EIGHT 41 — School Sand The North Attleboro High School has recently had the distinction of hav- ing one of the best bands in the state. This has been made possible under the excellent guidance of the instructor, Mr. John H. Bronson. The band ' s uniforms are very colorful, and while marching present an attractive picture. During the past year the drum major was Janet Thompson, assisted by five majorettes. The seniors in the band, whose places after this June will be empty, are Alfred Chabot, Walter Clark, Leo Ringuette, Melvin Andrews, Kenneth Fisler, Richard Wall, John Mason, Edward Frobel and Robert Chabot. The band has played at the football games, the State festivals, the spring concert, Flag Day, and Memorial Day. May the success of this year ' s band be an inspiration to next year ' s. Page Forty-five 19 THE NOKTHEIIIM EIGHT 91 [fHISiiitnr?? School Onoheilnxi The orchestra deserves high praise for its excellent work during the past year. The members have worked hard and have succeeded in making their organization a great success. The orchestra has increased since last year to a membership of 35 con- sisting of 14 violins, 4 pianists, 1 flute, 2 clarinets, 1 saxophone, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 3 horns, and 2 drums. The orchestra loses by graduation 13 mem- bers: Yvette Labrie, Dorothy Grosse, Juliette Labrie, Marion Fisher, Anne Hough- ton, Mary Kennedy, Leo Rmguette, Alfred Chabot, Edward Frobel, John Mason, Robert Chabot, Melvin Andrews, and Kenneth Fisler. The orchestra has played at the P. T. A. meetings, special assemblies, Music Festival, Senior Play, Spring Concert, and Graduation. We wish to express our thanks to Mr. John H. Bronson, the director, with- out whom the orchestra could never have attained such a great success. Page Forty-six —19 THE NORTHERN LIGHT 41 — Cflee. Glut). Many of the outside activities of the school, such as football and basket- ball are specifically for boys and otter no opportunity for the girls. But now, under the expert guidance of Mr. John Bronson, a glee club has been founded, composed of twenty-eight girls. In spite of the fact that this is the first year of the existence of this group, the club has been very successful and promises to become one of the outstand- ing units in the school. The girls made their debut at the Spring Concert and sang again at the Memorial Day exercises. We hope that the success of this glee club will incite enthusiasm in the school as to the benefits to be derived from an organization of this type. Page Forty-seven 19 THE NO It Ml Ml LIGHT 41 Sesuasi Plcuj, On the night of December 13, 1940, the class of ' 41 presented " The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come. " Under the guidance of Miss Mae Erving, the cast gave an excellent performance and the play was considered to be one of the most successful in years. The story concerned " Chad”, a little shepherd and the difficulties he en- countered in trying to adapt himself to the " blueblood " society of Kentucky and win the love of " Margaret " a high-spirited Southern-belle. Clayton Dietz portrayed " Chad " , while " Margaret " was played by Hazel Willmore. Other members of the cast included William Bishop, Janet Thompson, Janet Ryder, Dwight Thomas, Priscilla Lacourciere, Rita Ouellet, Mary Ken- nedy, Richard Sprague, Esther McArthur, Bernice Marlow, and John Roberts. Page Forty-eight —19 THE NHKTHEKIM LICHT 41 — ?l)e atina GUcL The Debating Club, one of the extra activities in our curriculum, has been exceptionally successful, having had only ONE defeat in the last three years. Under the guidance of Mr. G. T. Smith, the instructor, many suitable sub- jects have been chosen, which proved enjoyable as well as educational. Debates have been held with Attleboro, Canton, Norwood and Pawtucket. Seven of the twelve members on the team this year were seniors, namely; Dwight Thomas, William Bishop, Hazel Willmore, Jeanne McQuaid, Lawrence Kennedy, Anne Sullivan, and Martha LaRossee. Now that there will be such a great loss in membership, we hope others will enroll in this club and sustain the favorable record. Page Forty-nine 19 41 THE NHKTHEHN L1HHT Scyuad This is the second year of the existence of the traffic squad and it has proved to be very satisfactory. Eleven of the members are seniors: Ralph Hall, captain; Lawrence Kennedy, Ruel Smith, Dwight Thomas, William Bishop, Janet Thompson, William Baxter, Melvin Andrews, Bernice Marlow, Marian Fisher, and LeRoy Phipps. The students have cooperated with the monitors, thus making the passing in the corridors exceedingly orderly. Although the squad will lose many members by graduation, we are con- fident that our successors will continue to keep N. A. H. S. an orderly institution.
