S. tor the last time as students we look back and think of all the enjoyment and tun and educational opportunities that were ours during these past four years. We look back a little regretfully, too, for graduation time means that our happy, care-free days are at an end, and that now, we must face the world with a new kind of strength and determination and a willingness to accept our full share of the country ' s responsibilities. It Is difficult for us to realize that we won ' t be coming back next year - difficult for us to believe that we won ' t have any of the friendly gatherings, the school dances, the anxiety of whether or not we ' ve passed a test, the worry of getting the school paper out on time, and the many other things that have contributed to making our four years mem- orable ones. Consequently we have tried to capture a few of these fleeting memories and put them between the pages of this book, so that as the years go by we shall remem- ber and we shall be grateful to those who have made our high school days the happiest of our lives, and to those who, by their constant guidance and careful in- struction, have prepared us to face the many years ahead well-equipped. The years ahead are long and the path full of obsta- cles, but the education that has been given us will In- spire us to overcome these obstructions and take our rightful place, not only in our own community and coun- try, but in the world as well. 3J5e NORTHERN eoA. ol 7 LIGHT J o tUt Bckooi iiJ::?!!; lilde it ion.

Never was there a dance to equal this one! After Impatiently waiting for four long years, our dreams were finally realized. We held our Senior Invitation Dance! We meant to make this the most gala and suc- cessful event ever held in the North Attleboro High School. Consequently, we outdid ourselves in the mat- ter of decorations, etc. Blue and white were the selected colors, plus an array of balloons strung festively from one end of the gym to the other. Yes sir! it was really some- thing, at least that was our opinion when we stood in the doorway and viewed the results of our handiwork. And it was a success, too, despite the fact that the orchestra didn ' t show up until nine o ' clock, - an hour or so after It was slated to arrive, and that the grand march turned Into something other than a " march. " Oh, well, we figured, everything can ' t be perfect. As for the refreshments - well, - we were original - sundaes were what we had. After intermission, if someone chanced to come In he could almost think he was at a New Year ' s party instead of a Senior Dance, for by this time, all the decorations were down - crepe paper was flying every which way and balloons were floating in every direction. However, that didn ' t dampen the spirit of things, in fact, it Increased the gaiety. It was most decidedly a success - and a lot of fun - at least that ' s what everyone agreed when it was time for them to be- gin to wend their slow - oh, ever so slow, way home!

LORRAINE THERESA BOUCHER " Hon " Ambition: Telephone Operator Activities: Glee Club 1,2,4 Although she Is quiet - don ' t let her fool you. Her quietness will be an advantage to her all through life and will make others envious. CLASS here have been classes and classes and still more classes, but they were just classes. WE are utterly differ- ent. Our achievements on the athletic field and the suc- cess of our gala social affairs have been so magnani- mous that we will dispense with the details for fear of shaming the other students. Therefore, we will mention only the great accomplishments of the class of ' 47. Quietly we entered our first eventful year in high school and bravely faced an uncertain future in the corridors of N. A. H. S. We crept through those ten months half-scared to death of the very sight of a SENIOR, but we struggled through and finally fin- ished our freshman year, guided by Gordon Clarke, as President: Peggy Nolan, Vice-President; Jean Gran- ger, Secretary; and Eddie Weygand, Treasurer. Lj chard die arien The next year, our Junior year, when we finally be- came upperclassmen, we elected as our President, Eddie Weygand; Vice-President, Peggy Nolan, Secre- tary, Nancy Whitney; and the guardian of the class funds, Dave Greene. Our glorious name was success- fully upheld on the gridiron by Harold MacKay, Bob Stanhope, Eddie Weygand, Tom Brown, Bob Cooke, Mike Todaro, and George Schmidt. On the basket- ball court, George Schmidt, Harold MacKay, Pete Yates, and Bob Cooke made a second appearance aided by Johnnie Rhind, Lewie Pollock, and Reuben Mooradian. On the baseball diamond we saw Tom Brown, George Schmidt, Bob Cooke, Lewis Pollock, Harold MacKay, Ray Yates, and as manager, Craig Hobson. Our second year, we are sorry to say, was rather uneventful, but neve rtheless we still had our class officers, and for these exceedingly important posi- tions we chose as President, Gordon Clarke; Vice- President, Eddie Weygand; Secretary, Meredith Dillon; and Treasurer, Pete Yates. Our representation was rather light In our first two years as we devoted most of our time and energy in the pursuit of the intellectual things of life such as History, English, Latin, and all the studies we loved so well. (AHEM!) But don ' t forget the girls. They made quite a hit on the basketball court, also, with such players as Peg McCretton, Ginnie O ' Neil, Debby Baker, Denny Gibeault, Shirley Smith, Lois Purcell, and Nancy Whit- ney to lead them on to victory. On the softball team appeared Peggy Nolan, Nancy Whitney, Peg McCret- ton, and Barb Grade. The girls ' as well as the boys ' teams were spurred on to victory by the vivacious cheers of Irene Desilets and Barb Paquin. In the journalistic department, the " Red Cap " staff, to be specific, our banner was carried by Anne Korman, Peggy Nolan, Dottie Berger, and Eddie Wey- gand. And last, but not least we wish to mention the Junior Prom. This was THE event of the year. Our preparations were faultless, the decorations were ab- jd a 3 8 HISTOR Y I J .L ara g. solu+cly " out of this world, " — the refreshments were all taken care of - and the orchestra was seen to, but there was one tiny flaw. The ice cream failed to make an appearance at the designated time and our oblig- ing chaperones went in search of it. Senior Year! Our aspirations were attained! ! ! ! Finally, after three long, long years, we reached what we considered " our highest pinnacle of success " - for we were at last Seniors. To start things rolling we immediately elected Eddie Weygand, Peggy Nolan, Irene Desilets, and Pete Yates to lead us on as Presi- dent, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer, re- spectfully. The football team was composed of such Seniors as George Schmidt, who made his third year on the team, Tom Brown, Eddie Weygand, Pete Yates, Bob Beaulieu, Bob Stanhope, Harold MacKay, Bob Cooke, Dave Greene, Harlie Thompson, Bob Grimley, Don Dillon, Mike Todaro, and Craig Hobson as manager. George Schmidt made a third year appearance on the basketball court and he was accompanied by Pete Yates, Harold MacKay, Bob Cooke, Bob Beaulieu, Johnnie Rhind, and Reuben Mooradian, Well, let ' s not forget the girls again! The basket- ball court was cluttered up every Tuesday and Thurs- day by such Seniors as Peg McCretton, Ginnie O’Neil, Debby Baker, Shirley Smith, Lee Chamberlain, Denny Gibeault, Peggy Nolan, and Barb Gracie. Other organizations in which Seniors appeared and worked diligently were the orchestra. Red Cap and Yearbook, the band, the glee club, French Club, Parliamentary Law Club, and Camera Club. Another big, and I do mean big, happening in our Senior Year, was our invitation dance, appropriately named " Seninda " . This was one dance that was really very successful and everything went off like clockwork, despite the fact that our grand march was slightly mixed-up, and the orchestra failed to put in an ap- pearance until nine o ' clock. One of the biggest events in the life of a high school student is the Senior Play and ours was cer- tainly no exception. " Brother Goose, " was the name of the play, and brother, was it super! Under the capable leadership of Miss Erving — Craig Hobson, Lewie Pollock, Natalie Jenckes, Peggy Nolan, Margie O ' Neil, Barb Gracie, Dottie Berger, Norma Stetson, June Lanteigne, Joan Miller, Eddie Weygand, Tom Hurkett, and Anne Korman, displayed their histrionic ability before a very appreciative audience and pro- duced an exceedingly humorous comedy. I ' m sure that it was one evening that we won ' t forget for a while. As it may clearly be seen by the preceeding para- graphs, the entire program of N. A. H. S. will be dis- rupted by our graduating. Naturally, we all will be very sorry to leave. We will miss the teachers and they will miss us, we know. (I ' m only joking). However, I guess you can’t have everything, so we will reluctantly pass through the outward gate - never more to return at 8:10. f a e 59 Class Officers President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Newell Riley Barbara Weygand Irene Stetson Robert Messier Freshman Class The first event which was presented by the class of " 1950 " was a dance. This dance was held March 29 and called " The Whirlwind. " The weather, taking a hint from the name of the dance, was cold and windy. The grand march was led by Newell Riley and Barbara Weygand. Robert Messier and Irene Stet- son handled refreshments and tickets. On the sport ' s field, for the boys, the class honors were held up by Damon Swistak, Bob Messier and Joe Levis. Representing the weaker sex on the athletic field were Dora Messier, Barbara Weygand, and Helen Brederson. Sophomore Class Class Officers President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Charles Larsen Janet Weygand Elaine Corrigan Donald Poirier The class of ' 49 held its first dance this year on March 8th. It was called the " Spring Frolic. " The gym was well decorated with pink and green crepe paper. A good time was enjoyed by all. On the football team, Allan MacDonald was first string, while Alvin Bates, Gerard Achin, Bob Larocque and Fred Desilets substituted regularly. Allan MacDonald was also a varsity member of the basketball team while Richard McCretton, John Coyle, Mickey McNeil, Ray Bishop, Bob Clarke, and John Poholek were members of our second team. On the diamond. Bob Clarke, Allan MacDonald, Bob Larocque, Russell Myers, and Bob Oullette repre- sented the sophomores. Girls on the basketball team were Ella Charron, Fae Miller, Bertha Ash, Doris Boillard, and Gwen Hillman. f a e 60 Junior Class Llass President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Gt’l ' icers Herbert Ciolfi Jean La Rosee Jacqueline De Blois Gene Nardelli This year the Junior class accounted tor two social events. The first was somewhat subtly named " St. Vitus Dance. " The dance was well attended. Also the class held its " Junior Prom " in grand fashion. It was certainly the social affair of the year. The hall was decorated with black and white; the admission of $2.00 per couple broke all records. The Junior class held several paper drives in order to increase their treasury balance. The help and co- operation of the students made their Junior year quite successful. In the athletic department, Chuck Ciolfi played his role as one of the four horsemen. Dick Deschenes was one of the Rocketeer wing-men. Other Juniors who participated on the gridiron were Joseph Morrell, James Languille, Richard King, Andy Velletri, and Roger Cloutier. On the basketball court Gene Nardelli upheld class honors as captain of the Junior Rocketeers, with Jack Rioux and Dick Deschenes also outstanding tor the class of ' 48. On the baseball diamond, Albert Desilets was elected captain of the Rocketeer Nine with Gene Nardelli, Dick Deschenes, Jerry Parentou, Bob La- Rocque and Harry Azarian, all of whom fought to bring recognition to the Junior Class. Representing their class on the girls ' basketball team were Mae Allison, Abby Gibeault, Jean Bragg, and Joan Colburn.

PHILIP O. COAKLEY Assistant Coach Although their win column was small the Red Rocketeers of 1947 fought through their heavily scheduled season taking their defeats courageously. After an encouraging start by beating Warren, R. I., 14-6 the Rocketeers fell into a slump and suffered defeat at the hands of four teams before coming back to win over Franklin 13-0. Only one of these four games was lost by more than 7 points, and several were lost by bad breaks. When the big game of the season with Attleboro on Turkey Day came around, the odds favored a heavier and more experienced Attle- boro eleven. r 64 BALL J Vs 1st Row — George Johnson, Jack McGowan, Gordon Bates, Richard Magnan, Harry Caldwell. 2nd Row — Reuben Mooradian, Raymond Bishop, Charles Larsen, Coach Minah, William McNeil, Bill Johnson, Donald Childs. 3rd Row — Gene Nardelli, Ronald Blais, Robert Clark, Reginald Merrill, Fred Frizzell, Paul Lightfoot. MacDonald, Ciolfi, Schmidt, Cooke, Brown King, MacKay, Greene, Beaulieu, Yates, Weygand, Stanhope, Deschenes The game started off fast with Attleboro scoring twice in the first stanza, with North coming back before the half with seven points. In the second half Attleboro, capitalizing on the weak spots in the North defense, after George Schmidt and Chuck Ciolfi, our two big guns in the backfield, had left the field with Injuries, came back to score three more touchdowns to down the red and white 32-7. Although the team was not as fortunate as teams of past years they had the spirit and determination of past great teams and never lost a faithful spectator because they had lost their fight. If games were won by spirit and fight North would not have lost a game.

TKi.d ED RuCKETi: 5 ? 5 ' tfEAT FRANKLIN IN SOUIM. :if( 5 RE HOOP TOURNEY Racketeer Highlights This year ' s edition of the North High Basketeers came through with a record of nine wins against three losses. Although they had one of the better averages for Rocketeer basketball teams, this year ' s team was especially outstanding for they beat Attleboro, a feat in itself, not just once but TWICE! The most talked about feature of this fighting band of Rocketeers was the teamwork displayed throughout the season. There was no outstanding star but all five fellows pulled together feeding whoever was " on. " It was that type of spirit combined with the usual Rocketeer tight which will make these Red Rocketeers long remembered. The seniors who were members of the first squad were George Schmidt, Harold MacKay, " Pete " Yates, Bob Cooke, John Rhind, and Bob Beaulieu. f a e 6 7 BASE Faced with the toughest schedule ever to confront a Rocketeer nine, the team came through with typical North High spirit and determination. Listed on the schedule this year were several powerful Rhode Island clubs, among them the state champs, Warren. Coach Salvati, greatly aided by Coach Coakley, molded the team into one of the best Rocketeer nines to take the diamond in recent years. Jack Rioux, centerfielder of last year, took over first base. " Red " MacDonald at second base, and " Pop " Desilets at short-stop made a perfect keystone combination. Holding down the hot corner for the third year was Bob Cooke. Filling out the infield as utility men were Harry Azarian and Bob Oulette. 1st Row — Bob LaRocque, Lewis Pollock, Dick Deschenes, Gene Nardelli, Russell Meyer, Albert Desilets, Bob Ouelette. 2ncl Row — Harry Azarian, Jack Rioux, Allan MacDonald, Bob Cooke, Tom Brown, George Schmidt, Jerry Parenteau. 68 BALL George Schmidt, big right-hander, was our lead- ing pitcher. He was ably assisted in the pitching chores by Richard Deschenes, Gene Nardelli, Russell Meyers, and Bob Clarke. Tom Brown served his third year behind the plate and handled all the pitchers. Out in the suntield, we found Jerry Parenteau and Bobby Larocque. Dick Deschenes held down the mid- dle garden when not pitching. Lewis Pollock pulled ' em down in left field. Judging by their 15-9 victory over Moses Brown, the Rocketeers should have a banner season.

Led by Captains Peggy McCretton and Denny Gibeault, the girls won five games out of ten (one by a forfeit) and ended the season victoriously by beating Attleboro 22 to 18. In spite of a multitude of bumps, bruises, and sprained fingers, there were no major catas- trophes, although Peggy McCretton sprained her ankle and was out of the line-up tor two weeks. Other sen- iors on the team were Peggy Nolan, Dottie Baker, Barbara Grade, Ginnie O ' Neil, Shirley Smith, and Lee Chamberlain. The girls leave behind them some promising young players and they have high hopes for the success of next year ' s team. jpa e 70 1st Row — Shirley Smith, Virginia O’Neil, Leatrice Chamberlain, Margaret McCretton, Denise Gibeault, Mae Allinson, Peggy Nolan. 2nd Row — Abby Gibeault, Gwenny Hillman, Bertha Ash, Doris Boillard, Ella Charron, Fae Miller, Barbara Grade. 3rd Row — Barbara Walsh, Dora Messier, Jean Bragg, Barbara Weygand. GIRLS’ SUFTBALL The girls began their softball career this year by leaving Plainville on the dusty end of a 27-10 victory. Although two games and innumerable practices had to be postponed because of the weather, the girls still have their fingers crossed for the remaining five games they are scheduled to play. Seniors on the team are Peggy Nolan, Flora Hanley, Denice Gibeault, Peggy McCretton, Barbara Grade, and Lee Cham- berlain, captain. Although in previous years softball hasn ' t been as popular as basketball, this year it has come into its own and we venture to say that with next year ' s team it will become even more important. 7 Physical BOYS GYM Physical Education is held every Monday, Wednes- day, and Friday under the direction of Coach Ralph Salvati, During the fall touch football and softball were played on the local field. The winter months saw the classes working out in the gym doing push-ups, pull-ups, rope climbs, and calisthentics. Basketball and volleyball were also played for enjoyment. We are proud of gym as When Spring arrived. Coach Salvati once again took his physically-fit men out on the field for more calisthentics, and an occasional period of softball. Gym has only been in our school the past four years and since then has progressed rapidly. The coach was determined to mold the boys into strong physical shape. The results of the coach ' s de- termination is clearly seen in the strong armed brutes that now stomp our corridors. part of our curriculum. I a e 72 education GIRLS GYM Girls ' gym. Well, now, that is really something. Every Tuesday and Thursday the girls go down into the gym, well-prepared for a period of hard muscular drill. And they have fun, that is, if you consider get- ting yourself tangled up doing exercises, and running yourself ragged around the floor, fun. Nevertheless, despite all the strenuous work-outs given us by Miss Lobdell, there have been no casualities, save a few aches and pains. We ' ve done quite a variety of exer- cises this year and played several different games, such as long base, basketball, volley ball, and softball. The seniors who are graduating regret that no longer will they be able to clutter up the floor of the high school gym with their antics, but they hope that the classes which follow after will have as much fun during those two weekly periods as they did. JP a p. 13 Cheer This year, as In previous years, the cheerleaders came out to back the football and basketball teams of North High, and were ready to give them all they had, whether they won or lost. The active young girls could be seen at all games in their bright colored uniforms of red and white. SWING CHEER Attleboro ' s got jazz Attleboro ' s got swing But, boy.

Once again tor the second consecutive year the orchestra journeyed to the State Festival, which this year was held at Medford. In addition to the regular school programs the orchestra also played at the district P. T. A. meeting. The orchestra will feel the loss of Norma Stetson in the string section. Dick Houghton, Bob Grimley, Harold MacKay, and John Rhind will also leave an empty spot in the silver notes in the " Anniversary Song. " 78 Section. A vastly superior band led by three new snappy drum majorettes emerged this year through the dili- gent work of Mr. Bronson and the members. The North Band proved its ability at the Turkey Day classic by its superb playing. This year the Band with increased enrollment and augmented ability journeyed to Medford to compete in the State Contest. The Seniors are, Dick Larsen, Bugle Boy; Dick Houghton, Piccolo; Harold MacKay, Bob Grimley, and John Rhind from the Clarinet section. 79 Glee Club This year ' s Glee Club has surpassed all others — at least that is the point of view of the members. Led as always by Mr. Bronson, the group really outdid themselves in the Spring Concert. The choral numbers were excellent and this time, the girls wore evening gowns which made the whole affair much more attractive. During the P. T. A. conference held in the North Attleboro High School auditorium this Spring, the Glee Club entertained an appreciative audience with a few of the selections sung a few weeks earlier. Of course the Seniors who participated in this group will be sorely missed, for example, Denny Gibeault, Louise DeBlois, Barbara Gracie, Norma Stetson, Peggy Nolan, Joan Miller, Irene Desilets, Jean Purcell, Shirley Rose, Pete Yates, Bernie Greene, Bob Stanhope, John Rhind, Bob Cooke, Jean Granger and Marjorie O ' Neill, but I suppose the classes to come will be able to take our places successfully. All in all. we ' d say that the Glee Club had a pretty successful year. Pa e 80 THE STATE FESTIVAL When most of the townspeople were still in the arms of Morpheus, a courageous band of musicians assembled at the High School with signs of sleep still showing in half-opened eyes. At precisely seven o ' clock, two of Condon ' s super Greyhound buses picked up the Band and Orchestra. Unlike the pre- vious year, the buses were quiet on the way up. Ex- perience had taught us to conserve our strength for the task ahead. At approximately 9:30 the orchestra played the " Mexican Overture " . The judge must have been prejudiced because he didn ' t give us a good mark, and we know we were good. Who ' s that guy to tell us anyway? Trudging back up to the headquarters, the band changed and prepared to leave for the High School where the band was to appear at I 1 :30. A woman guide led the band through numerous corri- dors and downstairs. We waited while another band tried to play " Trapelo. " The N. A. H. S. Band then entered. The band played two preliminary songs to warm up. Strains of " Trapelo " then flowed into the judge ' s ear. Our 92 rating then flowed out onto the marking sheet. From there the unit went to the cafe- teria where a full course meal of sandwiches was served. After that, we were tree to enjoy the scenery. The scenery proved interesting for it took all after- noon to see it. The band returned to the buses to get a ride to the starting point of the parade. Following the march it seems as though our palaces on wheels got caught in the traffic. We managed after a time to board the welcome buses with many complaints reaching the driver that the " Romeo " of the band had a date in half an hour. All ended well, however, and we reached home with the bacon. SPRIlVG EOlVEEHT and FESTIVAL A capacity audience filled the High School Audi- torium on May 2 to witness one of the year ' s best musical performances, none other than the Spring con- cert. The Band opened the program with a triumphant blast which held the audience spellbound. Among the numbers played by the band was " Trapelo Overture " which, we knew, we would gain fame in Medford the following week. Between the Band and Orchestra, Denny Gibeault serenaded the lovebirds with " Indian Love Call. " Barbara Sharier next displayed her talents in playing " Polonaise Militaire. " The Orchestra then sent its golden tone over the music fans. Most pleasing were " Mexican Overture " and " Danube Waves Waltz. " Harold, Bob, and John, between the Orchestra and Glee Club, played a rendition of " Three Blind Mice. " The Glee Club, in their colorful evening gowns, pleased the audience not only with the singing, but with their pretty faces. The Glee Club opened with " American Prayer. " The program was closed with the spine- tingling song " Ours is the World. " 8 Journalism The Red Cap Lewis Pollock, Editor-in-Chief Associate Editors Dorothy Berger Harold MacKay Eileen Polefka The editions of the " Red Cap " , although they have been few this year, have been exceptionally good. In the most recent publication, the pages of the paper have been changed from three columns to two columns. The introduction of headlines for each article is also a decided improvement in the ap- pearance of the magazine. There has been less gossip in this year ' s paper which adds decidedly to the " Red Cap ' s " literary standing. The editor-in-chief, Lewis Pollock, with the assist- ance of the four associate editors, Dorothy Berger, Harold MacKay, Natalie Jenckes, Eileen Polefka, and other reporters, although handi-capped by a lack of funds, have made this year ' s " Red Cap " outstanding and a credit to North Attleboro High School. 1st Row — Cynthia Wyche, Jean Hargreaves, Harold MacKay, Lewis Pollock, Dorothy Berger, Eileen Polefka, Joan Miller. 2nd Row — Reuben Mooradian, Patricia Romero, Shirley Brown, 3rd Row — Barbara Thornley, Betty Fisler, Barbara Johnson, Louise DeBlols, Gwendolyn Hillman, Elsie Golden, Margaret Walter Appleby, Phyllis Hitchcock, Theresa Foucault, Eileen Cavanaugh, Craig Hobson.

R A M SENIOR PLAY BROTHER GOOSE On the evening of January 24, 1947, as the curtain slowly rose to announce to a capacity house the presen- tation of that great hit, " Brother Goose " , a murmur of expectation swept through the crowd. Backstage, a group of tried and true actors and actresses prepared to display their histrionic ability before the waiting audience. Barbara Grade, that well-known actress of stage, screen, and radio, (she once sat on the radio) very effectively played the part of Hyacinth, the ten-year old brat and the youngest member of the Adams family. Peggy Nolan, a most popular mam ' selle, portrayed Carol Adams, a typical easy-going teen-ager, whose passion was entering contests, usually with the ex- pectation of winning first prize. Lewie Pollock, who took the part of Wes Adams, the bashful young lover, contributed greatly to the play ' s success by his amusing antics, especially when he was on stage alone with Marjorie O ' Neill. She played the experienced, soft-voiced Southern belle, Eve Mason, with captivating charm. June Lanteigne, made-up in black face, perfected a full and resonant Southern accent in the part of Sarah, the comical colored maid of the Mason family. Helen, the sloppily dressed maid who quits soon after the beginning of the play, was played by Joan Miller. She provided for those backstage much en- tertainment by ad-libbing, with Lewie ' s aid, the love scenes enacted on the stage. Craig Hobson, that dashing-man-about-town, por- trayed the part of Jeff Adams, the head of the Adams ' household and the " Brother Goose " of the play. f a e 84 A T I C S One of the main attractions in the play was the appearance of Lenore Hudson, a striking but a very affected young lady, who was, so to speak, " out for Jeff " , successfully played by our gifted young Miss, Norma Stetson. Mrs. Trimmer, owner of the Wee Blue Inns was por- trayed by Dorothy Berger, who adapted herself well in the part of the prim but witty widow. Eddie Weygand, who put in a brief but much en- joyed appearance, amused everyone by his perform- ance of the " plenty mad " truck driver. The various voices heard from back stage were those produced by Dave Greene, our curtain puller. Peggy, the heroine of " Brother Goose, " the girl who virtually comes to the rescue of all concerned was played by our own Natalie Jenckes who brings the story to a successful conclusion with her last scene. Anne Korman, as prompter, and Thomas Hurkett, as sound effects man, greatly helped to make the play a success. During the intermission, Meredith Dillon, the head usher, presented gifts to Mr. Bronson, whose marvelous orchestra entertained the audi- ence between acts, and also to Miss Erving, our director, whose tire- less efforts were responsible for the overwhelming success of the play. North High will never forget this hilarious play which was presented by the senior class of 1947. It was Indeed a night to remember.

A. H. S. and al- though the meetings have been few and the activities small, those few gatherings were well attended which goes to prove the interest In the club was great. The officers, Craig Hobson, Denny Gibeault, and Barb Grade are retiring this year, (or rather, they are graduating) so new members will have to be elected, but. It Is worthwhile to note that perhaps what we have started this year will be continued next year and the years after with increasing success.

Meetings were held monthly at the homes of the various members. The French Club has lived up to its name, for all the meetings were con- ducted entirely in French. At the second meeting new members were ad- mitted and, therefore, initiations were held. The older members of the French Club, believe the new mem- bers will never forget it. At almost all of the meetings, regular French musical sessions were held. And " oh! la, la, " how the French Club went to town this year. The Club was responsible for one of the outstanding functions of the season, the Mardi Gras. The Club also attended a French movie out of town and provided tor the showing of another at one of its meetings. Typical programs were conducted at each meeting with skits dramatized in French by members, French games with prizes awarded to the winners, and read- ings in French. This year North Attleboro High School is to benefit by awards given by the French Government to pupils showing proficiency in French. The prizes not yet hav- ing arrived, the names of the winners will be announced later. Upon finding a surplus in their treasury, the Club was generously inclined to donate the sum of $10 to the " Save the Children Foundation " of New York, which was forwarded to a needy child in France. As in former years the Club completed its season with its annual open-air Hot Dog Roast. The officers of the Club were: President Dorothy Richard Secretary Betty Ann Precourt Treasurer Peggy Ann Nolan MONITORS 1st Row — Jean Granger, Betty Lou Johnson, Janet Culhane, 2nd Row — Lewis Pollock, Edward Weygand, Chuck Ciolti, Robert Shirley Rose, Anna Rena, Ruth Tittickjian.
