' BclitoxiaL We, the class of 1944, are preparing, as our many predecessors have before us, to leave North Attleboro High. But never before have graduating students had to face such irregular and difficult conditions. Nevertheless, whatever the circumstances, the four years spent here will always be looked upon as ones of worthwhile preparation for joining the ranks of the N. A. H. S. alumni. During our secondary school course, the class of 1944, has been handicapped in many ways, but that ever-present traditional school spirit has spurred our class on to many successful achievements. We hope to serve as an example to those who are soon to follow. Upholding the school tradition, we have composed a yearbook. We only hope that it will serve as a permanent reminder of the class of 1944, and that there will be more yearbooks to come. With the proud confidence and friendship supplied to us by the fac ulty, we depart with the firm purpose to do our best. Robert J.

A. And venture forth to face the problems of another day We leave with faith newborn, for after darkness comes the dawn. Tho far and wide across the world we travel on our way In memories once more we ' ll find the class of ' 44, And meet again our friends from old N. A. Words by — Hildred Bagshaw Music by — Muriel Shaw Maroon and Silver Red and White Carnations (2 tall czMiitozij by Jeanne Brennan and Donald Keagan ★ Being such brilliant students of history (ahem), we have been selected to trans- port you on a magic carpet back across the great expanse of years to 1940. On a beautiful day in September we trudged across the park and entering the gates of this great brain-dispensary, we consigned ourselves to the four years of work and toil which lay ahead of us. After listening to A. J. ' s dictatorial statements on how to conduct ourselves, we spent the rest of our first day wandering thru the maze of corridors helplessly weighted down by a few trifles such as books, pens, pencils, pads, erasers, compasses, rulers and various other paraphernalia which had been forced upon us. Bob King as president, Janet Swanezy, vice-president, Shirley Malinowski, secre- tary, and Jimmy Lavery as our treasurer, were destined as class officers to lead us through our first bewildering but socially uneventful year. Being more intellectual and less brawny than the upper-classmen we let them take the spotlight in the field of sports, and were contented to wait for another year. As sophomores, we were determined to make a name for ourselves in the annals of N. A. H. S. With the help of Hally, who represented us on the gridiron and in baseball, and Sargent and Zeke LaRosee, who were our contributions to the basket- ball team, we succeeded in doing this. Bob King was again elected president and the rest of his cabinet included: Jeanne Brennan as vice-president, Helen LaCasse as secretary, and Phil Jones as treasurer. Finally the great day arrived when we became upper classmen and after two years of learning the ropes we now knew how to disrupt the tranquil atmosphere of the classroom without being detected. Joe Grimes, that hard-boiled politician with the help of a few cigars, won the election. To help him carry the staggering burden we elected Helen LaCasse as vice- president, Shirley Malinowski as secretary, and we had Ray Malinowski to care for the HUGE fortune we had in our treasury. Norteman, King, LaRosee, and Hall donned the red and white and went out for football, while Sargent and Hall held up our end in the world of basketball and baseball. In May we held the Junior Prom and showed the seniors how a really good dance should be run. Page Seventeen THE NORTHERN 44 G H T We entered our Senior year as meek as a lamb but we were destined to leave with the roar of a lion. The day we had eagerly anticipated for three years finally arrived. At last we could have our say in the way things were run. After the shock of our first day in Miss Washburn ' s history class wore off, we settled down, and Ray Malinowski assumed the position of president, while Helen LaCasse was elected vice-president and Mary Luchetti and that " Smoothie " Arthur Fong were elected secretary and treasurer, respectively. We really became famous on the athletic field this year with such representatives as Captain Norteman, Sargent, Hall, Lavery, Welch and McCloughan. Domineering the side lines were those three vivacious cheerleaders Eleanor MacLine, Janet Swanezy and Jeanne Brennan. Sargent and Hall again captured the basketball limelight for us, while Lavery and Paquin joined them on the baseball diamond. For the first time, the girls were represented in basketball by Margie Larsen and Martha Locke. By using brute salesmanship on the defenseless underclassmen, we made a great success of our dances, and as a result increased our treasury. On the whole these dances were well attended, and, seriously, we wish to thank the underclassmen for their cooperation. After much discussion both " pro " and " con " as to whether or not we should have a senior play we FINALLY decided in favor of one. Under Miss Erving ' s capable direction we exercised our dramatic abilities and presented a three act comedy entitled " Don ' t Take My Penny! " The cast, however, thought seriously of changing the title to " Now — Miss Erving? " Nick Todaro, George Cooke and Elmer Riley, thru the persuasion of the draft board, left during the year to join the navy. Mr. Bronson will lose Gobin, Appleby and Cavanagh from the band, and Phyllis Clarke, Muriel Shaw, Doris Berglund, Henry Gobin and Dan Cavanagh from the orchestra. Helen LaCasse, Helene Dietz, and Shirley Malinowski will leave him search- ing for three new drum-majors. The Glee Club will also suffer from the loss of the sweet voices of: Jerry Ebert, Marie Ryder, Priscilla Mandalian, Betty Burke, Beverly Cambridge, Martha Locke, Dick Paquin and Ricky Sargent. The teachers are going to be lonesome too. Poor Miss Washburn! How she ' ll miss Norteman, Keagan and Chabot, her three little " time and a half " boys. Pretty soon they may be doing double time for some tough sergeant, for the draft board is throwing covetous glances in their direction. We hope that the underclassmen will live up to the high standard which we, the senior class, have set for them. We wish to thank the teachers for the patience and help which they have given us in the past four years, although we realize that their work was made easier because we were such sweet and cooperative students. And so the curtain falls on our adventures in N. A. H. S. We bid a fond fare- well to all! Page Eighteen chu ma by Jean Reilly and Harold Bicknell ★ We, the Senior Class of 1944, bestow upon you unfortunate underclassmen our characteristics that we have so cherished throughout our four years of high school.

Page Thirty-two Athletics THE NORTHERN ITT G H T 44 Under the capable supervision of head coach Call and assistant coaches Coakley and Chandler, the football team of " 44 " more than lived up to the expectations of its followers. In spite of the fact that we were defeated by teams such as Durfee, Taunton, Mansfield, the boys played a spectacular game Thanksgiving morning and gave the fans more than their money ' s worth by defeating our most bitter rivals, the Attleboro Bombardiers, 12 to 0. It is only fair to the squad to say that notes of a more remarkable game will never go down in the record book. Among those who gave all they possessed for the Red and White were: Capt. Ralph Norteman, James Lavery, John McCloughan, Robert Welch, Erick Sargent, and Raymond Hall, all members of the graduating class.

The Co-Editors were Robert Welch and Marie McGowan. Other members of the staff included Janet Swanezy and Richard Paquin, who wrote the Class Gifts, Erick Sargent and Cynthia Tennant, who wrote the Class Prophecy, Jean Reilly and Harold Bicknell, writers of the Class Will, Jeanne Brennan and Donald Keagan, who wrote the Class History, and Helene Dietz and Ralph Norteman who composed the Class Statistics. Ellsworth Welch, Phyllis Clarke, James Lavery, Joseph Grimes, John Mc- Cloughan, and Helen LaCasse were members of the advertising committee. It is hoped that the future classes of N. A. H. S. will keep up the publication of the " Y ear Book " , as have classes of the past. I I « I I I Page Thirty-eight H I In 1927, after a few years of non-existence, the school paper of N. A. H. S. was resumed under its present title, the Red Cap . In 1937, with the addition of a new type of cover, the paper was remodelled to its present status. The Red Cap, unlike many school papers is self-supporting. Its pages, which are free from advertising, consist of notes about school activities, jokes, compositions by pupils, cartoons, gossip, and sport notes. Under the capable supervision of Robert Welch, aided by other members of the staff, the paper has been very successful this year. Senior members of the staff were Shirley Malinowski, Erick Sargent, Claire Smith, Cynthia Tennant, Martha Locke, Marie McGowan, Raymond Malinowski, John McCloughan, Ellsworth Welch, and Jeanne Brennan. May the Red Cap prosper in the future as it has in the past. Page Thirty-nine 44 I The traffic squad has been in existence for four years. It has done much to main- tain order in the corridors.

Other seniors who participated were Phyllis Clarke, Martha Locke, Ray Malinowski, Erick Sargent, Marie McGowan, Richard Paguin, Arthur Fong, Hildred Bagshaw, Verna James, Helene Dietz, Ellsworth Welch, Marie Ryder, and Elmer Riley. i Page Forty-one THE I NORTHERN [ 44 I L 1 G H T j _ bb bb b« 1 i iinMrnnwmnnT Oxcfizitxa Page Forty-two DL gu cu The Glee Club founded, and guided by the excellent supervision of John Bronson, has given many pupils the opportunity to make use of their vocal talents.
