It is a troubled world Into which we are entering. However, our four years in N. A. H. S. will stand us in good stead and we will take our rightful places alongside of former N. A. H. S. graduates. During our years in high school, we have tried to make the grad- uating class of ' 42 an outstanding one, one that will serve as an inspira- tion to later classes. Members of our class have always taken part in the various extra-curricular activities offered by the school. We sincerely hope that our high school record will prove an Incentive to the later graduates. We have follov ed the example set by the graduating classes of 1940 and 1941 by having a year book. We hope that our successors will publish a better Year Book each year. So, as we go out Into the world, we say to our followers — - " Do your best — Good luck! " Thomas R.

But pridefully we look beyond the class of forty-two; Our tasks, our tests we have the strength to do. So onward down the paths of life We step with eager tread; No fear, no scorn can hold us back. Our future lies ahead. Words - Claire Slavin Music - Paul Cumberland QlaM, Qoio Maroon and Silver 19-42 The nmm Lien] Qia44 by R. J. Greene and Len Welch Up from the fields fresh with corn early one September morn came the Class of 1942. From every nook and corner of this fair metropolis we filed into this edifice of higher education eager to obtain all the teaching that could penetrate our bony craniums. Now, four years later, we are about to step forth Into the world ready to gain fame and fortune. Our first day we eagerly entered the " vast " auditorium and waited for A. J. Mott, of the Vermont Motts, whose bark Is worse than his bite, to " grace us " with his presence. After he gave us our official welcome, we were turned loose to play on the nerves of the teachers. Miss Washburn, our civic-minded teacher, aided by her capable assistant. Miss Barber, was the guiding light In our first political enterprise, class election. After the tabulation of the ballots, we found that Bobby Leiper was president; Ruth Mandallan, vice president; and Luke, " Jack of all trades " Sherman, treasurer; and Rita Capo- danno, secretary. The social spot light failed to shine on us and our athletes failed to attain the height of varsity competition. Our sophomore year found us brazenly entering tor the second uneventful year. Link Young and Mickey Nardelll, who is now with the U. S. Army Air Corps, rose to fame on the gridiron, while Charlie Magnani was a potent factor on the varsity basketball and baseball teams. Like Roosevelt, we came back for a third term, and we were raring to go at the opportunities now presented to us. Elections were held and Jim Swanezy took over the reign of the presidency, while Betty Riley became vice president, Normand Bris- sette handled the non-existent treasury, and Rita Carufel " kept the minutes " as secreta ry. We broke into society by holding two successful dances which placed the first funds into our depleted treasury. Link Young, Bobby Leiper, Jimmy Swanezy, Donald Jacgues, Steve Tutelian, Aunie Ryder and Marty Carr won their letters on the grid- iron. Charlie Magnani, Bobby Leiper, and Len " two point a season " Welch, led the North hoopsters. Charlie Magnani, Bobby Leiper, Len Welch and Jack Atwood were on the baseball team. Interclass basketball was played this year, and all honors went to the Juniors. Our class placed students in the orchestra, band, glee club and had three " brains " who maintained highest honors throughout the school year. Page Twenty-one The OOllTHEfiO LIGHT The s ummer recess by, and with joyous hearts we returned to spend our final year in school. At last we assumed the role of dignitaries and looked with scorn upon the throng of our youthful admirers, known as the underclassmen. Again the ballot boxes were opened, and Jimmie Swanezy was reelected presi- dent, Betty Riley retained the vice presidency, Norma Davignon took over the role of the secretary, while the treasury was handled by " S. " Tutelian, that political " im- presario. " The football team studded with senior stars, namely. Captain " Moe " Young, Jimmie Swanezy, Austin Ryder, Martin Carr, Bobby Leiper, Jack Atwood, Steve Tutelian, Charlie MagnanI, and Gus Holbrook, gave a good account of itself at all times. The basketball team captured a few of their encounters with Captain Charlie MagnanI, Len Welch, Bobby Leiper, and Chet TwardzIckI sporting the Red and White. The baseball team, because of the situation caused by the war, played a successful but abbreviated season. Captain MagnanI, Bobby Leiper, Len Welch, Jack Atwood, Paul O ' Neil, and R. J. " Shanty " Greene performed under the watch- ful eye of Mr. Yates. The Seniors played host at tour highly successful d ances, and the Senior Play, " Anne of Avonlea " , a heavy drama, was produced and directed under the capable supervision of Miss Erving, our dramatic coach. These added financially as well as being socially successful. Mr. Bronson will suffer greatly from graduation as he will be losing exceptionally fine musicians when he loses Len Welch, . Paul Gumberland, Normand Brissette, Tommy Norton, Gurt Jordan, Charlie MagnanI, and Virginia Copeland, who played In the band and orchestra. Rita Carufel, Claire Clavette, and Gerry Riley added their " angelic " voices to the Glee Glub. Gerry Riley, Dot McNeil, and Betty McManus twirled their batons In front of the band. Leading North ' s thunderous cheers, were Nan Rhind, Rita Garufel, Barb McBride, Bev Rose, whose untiring efforts are to be commended. The Red Gap staff boasted several senior newspaper genii and the " Northern Light " was compiled by very competent members of our great class. As Father Time, In his familiar robes, steps In and the curtains of our high school career is about to close, we pause for a moment to thank our teachers who have guided us over the rocky course with perseverance and patience, and we hope that we have served as an Inspiration to our successors. And so It Is with a feeling of remorse that we bid farewell to our school days and move on Into the world, eager to do our part In the betterment of it.

Taking a peek at the season ' s record, we find a decided slump In the victory column, as compared to that of previous years. Three of our defeats were at the hands of Walpole, Mansfield, and Taunton respectively; while the fourth and last was ad- ministered on Thanksgiving Day by our most bitter rivals — Attleboro. It is only fair to the squad to say that a more inspiring and heartbreaking game has never gone down in the record book. In turning our attention to the players, we find that Swanezy, Tutellan, Carr, Leiper and Captain Young saw service when juniors as well as seniors; while Magnani, Jolly, and Atwood were added to the roster in ' 42. R. J. Greene was assistant manager of the ' 41 Rocketeers, while Miller took over the honors as manager in ' 42. Page Forty-four fi alkeih ail eam As has been the case for the past two years, the North Attleboro basketball team once more climaxed Its season of competitive activities on the short end of the victory column. Although such a record doesn ' t lean on the sunny side, much can be said for the team, especially when the size of the squad, and number of practicing hours are taken Into consideration. Among those who have given all they possess for the " Red and White " are: MagnanI, helper, L. Welch, and Twardzickl. Every one of these players has seen more than a year ' s service, and has accomplished much towards sparking his team to those well-earned victories. Page Forty-five gA oU ea4ft Because the North Attleboro baseball team will not have gone into action before this is written, I can only say that the squad Is hu stling about in its usual snappy fashion. ' A good many of the players are regulars from last year, and give us some assur- ance that this season will be " the " season. Due to a few unexpected delays, the team hasn ' t received that same amount of practice which has ordinarily been afforded the teams of past years. Nevertheless, with such enthusiasts as helper, L. Welch, Magnani, O ' Neil, R. J. Greene, and Atwood, we North followers really have a few vicforles to look forward to. Page Forty-six 1 I !

The OORTHERU LIGHT Ue l fean. fiaoJz tcuj Two years ago a brave Senior class published a Year Book and called It " The Northern Light " . It was the wish of this class that the seniors each year continue the publishing of a Year Book. Last year ' s Seniors fulfilled this wish and the class of 1942 Is not the one to break it. " The Northern Light " has remained as the name of the Year Book. This year we have used a more elaborate cover tor our expensive type, and we sold these books for $1.50. The price of our paper covered books was $1.00. We sincerely hope that the future seniors continue to publish a Year Book. Page Forty-eight The flflfiTfJtfl " The " Red Cap " , our school paper, was published monthly, as usual, this year. The students of our high school supported the paper well, making it a financial suc- cess. The " Red Cap " staff worked diligently to maintain the standards set by previous staffs. The staff, this year, was made up of members of every class. The " Red Cap " , for sometime, has been a feature of N. A. H. S. and it is the wish of the Seniors that future classes keep It that way by putting out a better paper each year. Page Forty-nine The nORTHtfiO LIGHT 19 4 2 Qlieenieaxllen l Page Fifty 9 A 19 4 2 School Sofud With the regulars of last year, plus a number of eager enthusiasts the N. A. H. S. band continued its fine showing throughout the year, and received an appreciative hand from all who heard its excellent performances. Mr. Bronson ' s guidance has been a good deal responsible for +he band’s success. The senior members of the band who will graduate are L. Welch, T. Norton, C. Jordan, R. Barrett and C. Magnanl. All these will be sorely missed, but we have high hopes that those remaining will carry on the good work. Page Fifty-one ScUooi Onxdte inxi This year, as usual, our school was represented by an orchestra. Handicapped by a lack of many talented musicians, Mr. Bronson worked diligently with this organiza- tion to obtain the results which have been characteristic of past orchestras. In this, we feel thaf our music teacher was successful. The orchesfra will lose seven members through graduation, these being " Len " Welch, " Tommy " Norton, Paul Cumberland, Charles MagnanI, Curt Jordan, Normand Brissette, and Virginia Copeland. Page Fifty-two Qlee GluL The Glee Club, under the able direction of Mr. John Bronson, saw another suc- cessful season this year. The club, composed of twenty-three girls, has become one of the outstanding units of the school, especially after Its excellent performances over station WEEI last November and at the Spring Concert In May. The Glee Club Is the only school organization In N. A. H. S. specifically for girls, so the girls welcome this opportunity to show their talents. The success of this year ' s Glee Club will, we hope. Incite enthusiasm In the future classes to form similar clubs. Page Fifty-three mmu LIGHT 19 4 2 ★ As In previous years, the Senior Class presented a play entitled " Anne of Avonlea " . This play Is a sequel, so to speak, of the famous " Ann e of Green Gables " . Under the capable supervision of Miss May Erving, this play was a great success. Featured In the cast was Rita Carufel as Anne, Ruth Mandallan as Mrs. Rachel Lynde and Pauline Goulet as Manilla Cuthbert. Other featured players were Leonard Welch as Gilbert Blythe and Thomas Norton as the cranky old Mr. J. A. Harrison. The play was enjoyed by a large, appreciative audience, who will In later years recall the portrayals of the youthful thesplans. Page Fifty-four S ucut The Student Council, which originated two years ago, has continued Its patrol of the corridors since the beginning of the school term. However, the customary arrangement of a single shift has been done away with. Instead, this Council has instigated a double shift, primarily for the sake of convenience. All accounted for, the Student Government now numbers approximately twenty- five members. A court, consisting of five permanent jurors and a judge. Is still in opera- tion, and continuing Its fine services. Supervision of the Student Council has been vested in the hands of Lincoln Young, who Is Indeed capable of directing such an undertaking.
