Music, under the able direction of Mr. Albert Reid Raymond, has become
an integral part of life here at Northfield. In rehearsals, his patient and skill-
ful conducting transforms the printed notes into inspiring anthems, while his
sense of humor adds the necessary sparkle to help us over the tedious spots.
Christmas Vespers and Sacred Concert, which thrill so many, are a reflection of
his mastery in the field of music. Thus, the class of nineteen hundred and fifty
two dedicates the HIGHLIGHTS to Mr. Albert Reid Rayncond.

This year we have been especially fortunate to have with us
at Northheld an exchange teacher from Kent, England, Miss
Mary Mallard. We will always remember glimpses of her
streaking across campus to Chapel or a skiing class. We have
appreciated her hearty participation in our many school
activities. including student-faculty games. Those of us who
have been in her history classes will always admire her fervent
love of England and her subtle British humor. She has made
England vivid and exciting for us, and through, her teaching,
we have learned more about England, her Empire, culture,
people, and present problems. Miss Mallard has helped to
strengthen the bonds that tie England and the United States
together. We earnestly hope that Miss Mallard will have
the opportunity to return to Northfield soon.

THE VOYAGE OF THE "S.S. '52"
'Twas in the fall of '48
The good ship '52
Departed with adventurous heart
And forty men in crew.
The trip was gayg Miss Wilson
Asked us all to a reception,
And teas were given by Miss Webb,
Supreme without exception.
One day on the distant horizon
4,1-s Another ship hove into view.
fi We discovered the "S.S. Hermon"
CAlso Class of '52!l.
But '52, The Invincible,
Made use of the three-cent stamp.
Our Hrst year really ended
When we lost our writer's cramp.
But in the fall of '49
The Johnsons did appear.
Miss Curtis became a class teacher,
And the horizon began to clear.
Stormy weather threatened soon
CBut goodness knows that passeslj,
And soon we all were going strong
Clnvolved in Latin classesl.
Dense fog surrounded most of us
When exams loomed our way.
CBut now we know "time and the hour
Pass through the roughest day!"J
'Twas hard to make connections
Because of the water between.
And, even with a telescope,
Hermon could not be seen.
Leaving the port of Freshman Year
We approached the campus life,
And joined by the "S.S. Moorites"
We steeled ourselves for THE STRIFE
The gay surprise of Carnival came
When icy winds did blow.
We crowned a king and queen that day
And sculptured things in snow.
Our "Met stars" sang the Mikado
On a stormy night in june,
And, even though the lights went out,
They carried on the tune.
We turned our course towards junior Year
Our hearts were full of glee
But all too soon we found ourselves
Praising on bended knee.
On Mountain Day we tramped for miles
And then put on our skits.
CA few historic moments.
Which were not quite Broadway hitslj
With Tree Day came clouds and thunder.
We shuddered with the cold,
But "Mother Goose" went gaily on.
CWe thought ourselves quite boldly
But when we koarded our ship once
In September of '51,
Along with responsibility.
Came quite a lot of fun.
The crowning events of senior year
Came on us thick and fast.
Class Day. Gateway, and Chateau
Quickly came and passed.
We heaved a sigh when we reached port
After the third long year.
CWe looked ahead and saw THE END
Appearing all too near!j
We had a major shipwreck
Which created quite a stir,
And all the party goers came
A-costumed "as they were."
And on a balmy day in June
We had our graduation.
The ship had safely weathered all
And reached its destination.

CLASS ORATION, 1952
To most people the word "graduation" conveys the idea of the completion of one period
in a person's life and the commencement of another. Thus we, who are about to graduate,
will soon have reached that stage and will be turning to discover what the future holds for
us. At times of graduation one often hears it said that we have not really reached an end,
but rather a beginningg that the future is now all important, and to look back at the past
is to engage in the foolish sentimentality of reminiscence. Yet in spite of this current opinion,
do not most of us, as we arrive at the end of our Northheld years, feel some natural tendency
to look back on the rich experiences of the past? There are no two of us alike, and yet each
of us has found something at Northfield that gives rise to a feeling of sadness at graduation:
and this feeling is entirely right and natural. We are going to miss our friends, we are go-
ing to miss our teachers, and we are going to miss those dozens of little personal things
that seem to mean something to us and to no one else: a shaft of sunlight that pierces the
chapel window to illuminate the transept, the smell of burning leaves in October, or the sound
of the snowplow grating on the sidewalk before the rising bell. Not only is this a natural time
to look back, it is a good time. The past few years assume something of their right perspective
from the point of vantage which we now have gained, and the hurdles which at one time
seemed tremendous, now, as we look back, have shrunk into the right proportion to our
daily lives. That source theme- it was a real race, but we got it in on time, and the
history mid-year was not worth half the agony we spent on it. Our Northfield experience
takes on a new unity, and instead of thinking of it in terms of a set of small daily or weekly
tasks and pleasures, we can see the more important yearly trends which our lives have
taken, and we can see and evaluate our accomplishments in their entirety.
Though there is some real value in looking back at the past, there are also several dangers
of which we must be aware if we do not want our retrospect to become more of a disadvantage
than an asset. The first of these dangers is a natural tendency to set apart some period in the past
of which we are thinking and to forget that this part of our lives is both significant for and
related to our present Way of living. A second danger of which we must be aware is the
tendency to look to the past not objectively or honestly, but rather to look to a past which,
as a means of escape, we have distorted into a wild dream of perfect happiness in which we
have purposely forgotten all the harsh or bitter experiences and glorified far out of propor-
tion all the happy ones. There were probably very few of us who were immediately happy
when we first came to Northfield. We had hard adjustments to make and hard lessons to
learn, but it was as much if not more by these hard experiences as by the happy ones that
we benefited and grew in understanding. We shall continue to learn by both the hard and
the easy, the joyful and the sad for the rest of our lives, and though we may not have the
same security later on that we have had here, still we shall probably not find that our years
at Northfield lacked the difficulties and decisions that are a part of anyone's life at any
time. If we are aware of the two dangers that are involved in looking back, then we can
really benefit by pausing now to live again and newly appreciate our Northfield years..
The past towards which we have been looking is of no actual value to us unless it has
become an integrated part of our lives. This year our motto is: "We build the ladder on
which we climb." Right now we are on one of the bottom rungs of our ladder, and we must
not forget that it is the bottom rungs which must be the strongest for they are the support
and the foundation for all those later to be built above them.
The most fundamental rung which we have been building is our religion. In an atmosphere
of complete religious freedom, we have been able to mold our discoveries into convictions,
and our convictions into our own religious faith. There were probably some of us who, when
we first came to Northfield, were not even sure that we believed in God. It would have been
well if we could have read a letter written from Thomas jefferson to Peter Carr in 1787.
In this letter, Jefferson advises Carr to "Fix reason hrmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal
every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a Godg because, if
there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."
Our Bible classes have led us in this very search. For us the fundamental literature of
Christianity has been variously interpreted. From these interpretations we have been free
to draw our own conclusions and to incorporate these conclusions into our own faith. It is
not only in the classroom, however, that we have been stimulated in our search. A remark
heard, while I was walking from Palmer to Stone, seems to illustrate well the extent of the
religious opportunity at Northfield. A girl said, "Our trouble is that we have so many good
chapel speakers that we just aren't impressed any more." How true this is! Probably we
will not really appreciate our daily Chapel, our Community Service. our silent time, our
Sunday service, and the many fine speakers we have heard, until we reach college where it
will be our own decision whether or not we even attend church once a week. Our realiza-
tion of the value of the religious opportunity we have had here should give us the determi-
nation to continue building a rung so soundly begun.
Our Northfield years have been spent living cooperatively. In the future we shall probably
remember "dummy" as vividly as any aspect of our school life. We all gained a certain satis-
faction when we realized that our job, no matter how small. was an indispensable link in a
closely-knit, smooth running system. Nevertheless, we are all human, and who can deny us
our privilege to gripe? It would have been far too much to ask the erstwhile cook to grin and
bear it when the whole French class objected so to the smell of onions that she was surrounded
by empty seats. Remember the day that it took a good fifteen minutes to extricate one luck-
less student from the interior of the dish machine which she was trying to wash? Well, that
really was the last straw. But dummy was certainly not always so hectic. The steady routine
of learning our Spanish vocabulary while sweeping the stairs at 8:25, rising before the sun
morning after morning to go on breakfast prep, or scrubbing dinner tins until our motions
were like clockwork, these things, perhaps we shall remember more than the amusing inci-
dents that broke our day by day routine. For the patience, the etiiciency, the cooperative
spirit, and the ability to find pleasure in a job well doneg for these things that dummy has
taught us, we are grateful.
Here at school the way has been opened up for each one of us to begin her own discovery
of beauty and of truth. We have been able to pursue this discovery in vastly varied fields: in
sciences, history, Bible or languages, in English or mathematics or music or art, in acting, in
athletics, or in extra-curricular activities. Let us look first at the qualities acquired by a stu-
dent of sciences. Accuracy comes immediately to mind. Balancing chemical equations, solv-
ing formulas in physics, or distinguishing between the microscopic layers in the tissue of a
leafg this kind of mental activity develops an appreciation of precision. A second quality is
the ability to reason clearly. To follow and comprehend a scientific process from beginning to
end demands the most methodical and logical reasoning. Finally, science awakens our sense
of wonder. Who could fail to experience a certain thrill by the discovery that the smallest
particle of an element, the atom, is built upon the very same plan as the largest comprehen-
sible system, the universe? History is a subject with which no Northfield senior is una cquainted.
The principal value of history lies in the perspective with which it provides a student to under-
stand the existing situation in the world. Without this perspective, the present condition of
the world might well appear hopeless. But a student who has studied the second world war
knows that the United States. when previously menaced by a threat equally as formidable as
Communism today. was able to overcome with one great united effort, that powerful exterior
force. Such a realization supplies the hope and the courage with which to bear the present and
work for the future. There are two principal advantages to be gained from a study of the
languages. First, learning a foreign language increases a student's appreciation of the English
language. Because English is the basic working language, all expressions in a new foreign
language must be compared to the corresponding English expression, By translating a foreign
language a student becomes more aware of the structure and form of her own language.
Second, through the study of a foreign language a student comes in contact with the culture
and customs of a foreign people. In this age, when we are citizens of the world rather than of
a nation, there can be no doubt of the great value of a knowledge of our foreign neighbors.
But of all the fields in which we have pursued our academic search. perhaps the most funda-
mental is the field of English. Our study of English here has opened up the way for our own
discovery of the great ideas and ideals as they are recorded in literature. In 'Z-l1zIigor1c" we
found high idealsg in "Mr1cbelh" we found false ideals. In American literature we have had a
glimpse of ideals in their extremes: from the Calvinism of Jonathan Edwards to the Trans-
cendentalism of Emerson to the realism of Hemingway. 'One of the primary reasons for a
study of literature is to absorb these ideals. To broaden one's experience is a second aim in
the field of English. London in Samuel ,Iohnson's day or Paris during the Revolution would
be no more than history if such literature as Macauleyls essay or The Tale of Two Cilies could
not change these places into sharp reality. To appreciate most literature a student must
develop a creative imagination. Finally, through literature can be gained a knowledge of
human character. A student either discovers something about the character of the author
himself, or he discovers some human traits in the real or fictitious characters which the author
is presenting. However, an asset equally important as those gained from literature is the
ability to express oneself effectively. Actually to have accomplished anything in the study of
English, a student must have learned, by a painstaking study of grammar, how to express
Music plays a traditionally large part in the life of a Northfield girl. Whether an Esteyite
or just a choir member, she has found pleasure in singing. Who would deny that the hard
work of Friday choir rehearsals or Thursday song practices was not amply rewarded when
the opening chords of "A Mighty Fortress" echoed through the cavernous auditorium, or
"Dost Thou Remember" rose to the rafters of the chapel? Whether a girl has enjoyed sing-
ing most, played an instrument in the orchestra, or performed on the piano at a Friday night
concert, she has benefited in many ways by her study. A concentrated study of the techni-
calities of music is intellectually beneficialg the deep enjoyment of a well performed piece of
music is emotionally and spiritually enriching, Art is also an important field at Northfield.
Those who have studied art in the classroom have grown in an understanding of line, color
and perspective. Those who have not studied art have benefited from the many exhibits set
up in the library, particularly the excellent exhibit of Mr. Wolfe's Greek paintings.
There is one experience that we shall take with us which is as beautiful as the experience
gained from art and music. It has a reality that the passing years can never steal from us.
Friendship, whether with another girl, with a teacher or house instructor, or an administrative
official, or even with a Hermonite, has played an important part in the process of growing
up. We are happy, even happier than usual, that we are seniors and not juniors, for we shall
receive our diplomas from Miss Wilson f one whose loving and thoughtful care for us, whose
example of courage and faith will shine for us in the years ahead like the eternal flame.
Finally, what has been gained from the participation in sports? Good sportsmanship and
team work come to mind first. Strenuous exercise to keep one's body physically fit is also an
important aim in athletics. Besides these material gains, there is the sheer pleasure of an
exciting game played as the late afternoon sun sets afire the clouds over the Connecticut.
Closely associated with athletics are other outdoor activities: the exuberant hike through the
falling leaves on Mountain Day. fremember how we beat the faculty at softball?j, the giant
snow sculpture which so greatly excelled all others, even if the judges didn't agree with us,
and the festive atmosphere of Tree Day, no matter what the weather!
When we sum up in this way the fields which have been opened for our search and our
discovery, does not our opportunity at Northfield indeed seem incredible?
There is one source of beauty at Northfield for which we did not even have to search be-
yond our campus. No one could live here very long without being aware of the beauty of
nature around her. We have become fond of the ridge, the mountains, and the Connecticut
Valley as we watched them changed and rechanged by the passing seasons. Probably many
of us have the view from our windows, seen in the dim light of morning, the blazing light of
noon, or the rosy dusk of evening framed in her memories.
We are now almost at the end of our Northfield years. We have had an extraordinary
opportunity to build firmly and soundly the bottom rungs of our ladder, and we are now
ready to move ahead to the rungs above. In order to build these next rungs we will need to
call upon every resource which we have developed here at school. In this way our lives may
be compared to a multiplying processg nothing that we do is unrelated to what has gone be-
fore it, and our best achievement will be a direct result of our preparation for that work.
Very soon our Northfield years will be something in the past, but they will not be an un-
related or forgotten part of the past. For if we have made the truths we have found here a
living and vital part of our very selves, an integrated and fundamental part of our lives, then
the past has given us the strength and the confidence with which to build our lives in the future.

The 1952 HIGHLIGHTS Board wishes to express its appreciation to all who have helped
make this publication possible, especially Mr. Frank Pearsall, DeKane Studio of New York
City and the Valley Litho Company of Holyoke, Mass.
There is a noble river, that swiftly flows along,
It sweeps by many a campus far famed in tale and songg
No dearer loved among them all than Northfield grand and strong,
For where the purple hills surround as God doth guard His own,
There, Alma Mater, are thy courts f but in our hearts thy throne.
As sign of our allegiance we wear thy color blue,
And gleams the star, six-pointed, o'er loyal hearts and trueg
Emblems of truth and symmetry, our high ideals renew,
And as one shining star of old did lead at length to God,
Guide us forever by thy beams in paths our founder trod.
Though short the moments with thee, though years stretch on before,
The friends, the truths we gain here shall be ours more and more.
We wait with hearts courageous, on the threshhold of life's door,
Remembering thou hast taught us that the purpose of our strife
Is not to make a living, but to nobly make a life.
O Northfield beautiful, O Northfield dear and fair!
Loyal and dutiful, thy daughters everywhere
Rise up and call thee blessed for thy fostering care.
