In previous years mimeographed. As the former the latter too laborious, we a new method of publishing the it has been either printed or process is too expensive and decided to take a middle course and have our book planographed. This is a fairly new process, whereby typed sheets are photographed. We sincerely hope that this experiment will meet with the approval of you, the friends of the Senior Class. We have tried to do our part in making this annual a success, but we know our efforts would have been fruitless without the help and constant cooperation of the seniors as well as our adviser, Miss Linzy. This Liberanni has been written with certain aims in view: To furnish the friends of the school information concerning the student activities and the departments which are represented in our school, to give the students of Delaware Literary Institute a record of the events in school life for the past year, and to provide the seniors with a book of memories based on their school days. .,1.,:..

CEHZAEE HWHNKDHZY Twelve years ago this fall the Class of '37 started school in the Ladies' Hall with Mrs. Enderlin. Of that group only Frances Geertgens, Lewis Johnson, Carrietta 0'Hara and Evelyn Hodges remain. Miss Martin CMrs. John Mclntoshl was our second grade teacher, In the third grade we were under Mrs. Lynn Finch's guidance. Virginia Law joined us that year. When we reached the fourth grade, we found a new teacher, Miss Gladstone, awaiting us. Carrietta O'Hara left us that year and went to Otego. In the fifth grade we had Mrs. Earl Tilyou as teacher. Eva Charles joined us during the year. We seemed to be the class that greeted the new teachers because we welcomed Miss Yaple CMrs. Russell Bradleyl for our sixth grade teacher. That year a number of students entered the class. They were: Ethel Bridgman, Dorothy Drake, Francis Schmitt, and Edward Sienicki. Carrietta O'Hara also came back. In March we moved into the new building. When we reached the seventh grade, we felt very much grown up because, although we were located down stairs under Miss Kemp's guidance, we had several classes upstairs. We no longer had one teacher for all subjects but a different one for each. Ruth Gifford joined the Class that year. In the eighth grade, we had Mrs. Andrew Wigham for our home room teacher. Kenneth Simmons and Irving Hanson joined us at the beginning of the year. The next year we were full fledged high school students. And to make us more certain of the fact, the sophomores initiated us. That year Donald Ackley, William Barker, Margaret and Nettie Boggs, Nettie Snyder, George Slawson and Honora Wilson were enrolled in our class. We elected Francis Schmitt for President and Miss Keenholts CMrs. Henry Crawford! as class adviser. We had the first annual Fresh Frolic. In our sophomore year we elected Carrietta 0'Hara as President and Mr. Fowlston, class adviser. During the year we sponsored a Patrons' Day Dance and a roller skating party. Francis Schmitt was the Junior Class President and Miss Gregg, class adviser. In December we sponsored the Junior Prom in honor of the Seniors. During the year Virginia Armstrong was welcomed to the class. At last we reached our Senior Year! At times it seemed as if it were a dream that could never come true, but we have enjoyed it the most of all. We started out by electing Eva Charles as president and Miss Linzy, class adviser. The first event was a Hallowe'en party'held for the school. December ll was the Senior play entitled, 'Icebound'. April 9, we sponsored an informal dance with Burt Boycds orchestra. The annual Senior Ball was in May, the last dance to be given by the Class of '57. During the last four years,members of our class have been well represented in basketball, baseball, football, track, and one-act play contests. Thus endeth the history of the first step of the educational ladder of the class of '37. Even though it is only the first step, we have enjoyed it so much that we would lik to do it again. D 3427+ J?

' Signed 2 Che-af y 257 Witnesses: ' 2 fc CEHBIDE IPHZCDIPITHUIY Over their teacups, the Seniors are amiably discussing what they will be doing ten years from now.

This was directed by Mrs. Donald Law, who has had charge of dramatics this year. After about two months of rehearsal and rollicking fun, the play was ready for the public on Friday night, December 11. The members of the cast were: - Henry Jordan Lewis Johnson Em a--his wife Frances Geertgens Nettie--her daughter by A a former marriage Nettie Boggs Sadie Fellows--a widowed sister Honora Wilson Orin--her son Ralph Slawson Ella Jordan--an unmarried sister Virginia Armstrong Ben Jordan--the black sheep of the family Edward Sienicki Doctor Curtis George Slawson Judge Bradford Francis Sch itt Jane Crosby--a servant Virginia Law Hannah!-a servant Ruth Gifford Jim Jay--a deputy sheriff William Barker One scene, that of an old fashioned parlor, was used for the three acts. The properties were skillfully and ob- ligingly taken care of by Charles Smith, Gerald Taggart, Millard Secord, Donald Ackley, and Irving Hanson. The family were all mean and money-mad with the exception of Jane, an orphan brought up by Mrs. Jordan. Mrs. Jordan died leaving Jane all her money. Ben returned from hiding from the police. Jane went his bail and put him to work on her farm. The rest of the family hated her but kept begging for help from her. She finally refused to give, or lend them any more money. Ben became a changed man because of his work on the farm. When Jane saw that he was thoroughly reformed, she called the family together and turned all her money and land over to Ben, and started to leave. Ben discovered he loved her, and she finally gdmitted she loved him. The play ended with plans for their wedding. There was a large audience and a very appreciative one. The class treasury was greatly boosted by the profits from this dramatic venture, and both the class and the audience retired with a sense of satisfaction.

Then the following were elected: president, Carolyn Peake: vice president, Jack Colburn secretary, Louise Packer, treasurer, Lawrence McGrath, class reporter, Norman Peakeg Athletic Council representative, William Barnes: class adviser, Miss Gregg. Butthe Class had bad luck and lost two of its officers after Christmas vacation, Louise Packer and Lawrence McGrath, so Eleanor Smith was elected secretary, and Carl Wayman treasurer. Norman Peake was elected junior representative on the Student Council, and Carolyn Peake, as president, also represented the Class. On December 18, the juniors held the annual Junior Prom in honor of the Seniors. Olie Nelson's orchestra furnished music for round dancing from nine until one. The attendance was small, and the Class did not make expenses. However, those who attended reported an enjoyable time. In order to pay the bills and put a little extra in the treasury, pop, popcorn, and candy were sold at basketball games. Several members of the Class have participated in football, basketball, baseball, prize speaking, plays, and musical activities during the year. The Class planned an informal dance, but it conflicted with other school activities so had to be given up. Next year this Class will be printing the yearbook!

Eva Charles SOPH- 0l10RE MDHDIHCDMCDHZIE GQMxfviv On October fifth of nineteen hundred thirty-six, the sophomores held their first meeting in which the following officers were elected: Charles Underwood, Presidents Inez Rhodes, vice Presidentg Dorothy Charles, Secretaryg Carol Robbins, Treasurer, Hr. Fowlston, Class Adviserg Frances McNutt and Francis Patrick were elected as class reporters. The fresh en were made to realize that they were to respect the superior classes,on October sixteenth. The sophomores exercised the same authority which the year before had been exerted over them. The fresh en, everyone feels, are full-fledged high school students since they have survived the effects of a rough and humiliating initiation. The second big event was the sophomore's Valentine Dance on February sixth. Boyce's Orchestra supplied music for square and round dancing. The dance was well-attended, and the sophomores feel that they were very successful in their first attempt at a social event. The sophomores will return next year expecting an unprecedented. one, so far as scholarship, athletics, and social activities are concerned. Ella AX4-1.

Frances Worden and Robert Eaton were awarded the prizes. On the Friday before St. Patrick's Day, the Freshman Class had charge of an assembly program. They held their Fresh an Frolic on May first. It turned out to be very successful, beth finaneielly and socially. ' r The Freshman Class was proud to be represented by two girls and two boys on the schoo1's basketball teams. SOCIAL ECDCEHZML IIVIENTTSJ It seems that the sophomores were the first to have any activity concerning the school. On October 16, they held their Freshman Initiation. They scared the freshman girls by tickling their feet and the boys by riding them on the operating table. Then the seniors blossomed forth with a Costume Hallowe'a1 Dance on October 30. The costumes were certainly original. Helen Warren, as a little girl, and Edwin Niles a Senator Fishf Face, received the prizes for the humorous couple, and Eva Charles as Little Red Riding Hood, and Fleming Geertgens as a Mexican, received prizes for being the best-dressed couple. Everyone had a good time, and the refreshments were enjoyed by all. On November 13, the parents came to school and visited the different classes. Many parents gained a clearer idea of how the classes were conducted. Tea was served by the Homemaking Department for these guests. On the 20 of March, the Ag. boys held their annual Ag-Dance. Dick Charles furnished the music. Cookies and chocolate milk were consumed in alarming quantities and that age-old maxim, 'a good time was had by all,' was fulfilled. Then on December 18, came the annual Junior Prom, in honor of the seniors. Asthis was the most talked-about dance of the year, a large crowd attended. The dance began with a grand march of the seniors and juniors and their guests. Ollie Nelson and his orchestra furnished music, and during the intermission cranberry punch and cookies were served. The gym was attractively decorated by the juniors with Christmas trees and lights. It was by far the best dance of the year. V The Sophomore Dance was held February 6. Burt Boyce's orchestra furnished music for round and square dancing. Roy Robbins, in behalf of the Junior Class, sold large quantities of ice-cream and pop. Everyone enjoyed himself, and seeing the faculty square-dance .was a treat that many of the fortunate crowd witnessed. On April 9, the seniors held a Balloon Dance. Everyone danced round and square dances, to the music of Boyce's orchestra. Ice-cream and cookies were sold. The guests and faculty especially enjoyed the dance, as did many of the student body. On May l, the Freshman Frolic was held. Boyce's orchestra furnished the music from eight to twelve. The gym was cleverly decorated with green crepe paper, green balloonsjand a freshman clown adorned the center of the stage. Cookies and punch were served, and everyone had a good time. The annual Senior Ball was given on May 21, to the music of Ollie Nelson's orchestra. The Sym was gaily decorated in the Senior Class colors, blue and white. Formal gowns added a colorful note. ' Com encement Week will be marked by the usual social events of Senior Reception and Alumni Banquet. HVUJIBILHCE MPEAHKHNQEJ During the course of the school year, each class under the guidance of Miss Linzy, presented in assembly a number of memorized selections. The eight best speakers from the entire group of twenty-six contestants spoke in the auditorium on the evening of February 3. Then the two best speakers from this group went to South New Berlin for the sectional contest, on February 8. Those participating in the Prize Speaking Contest, February 3, were: Honora Wilson, Joseph Giudice, Carolyn Peake, Francis Patrick, Howard walwanis, Frances Worden, Helen warren, and Edward wurfer. A great deal of talent in the art of public speaking was displayed by this group. Carolyn Peake and Edward Wurfer were given first prizes of five dollars. They journeyed to South New Berlin, on February 8, but they did not 'carry home the baconn, though they spoke very well. WUIHIE CIDTTIHIEHZ WHEE MAXNW On December 20 a large audience of parents and friends gathered in the gym to see the play, NThe Other Wise Manu, by Henry Van Dyke. The play was directed by Mrs. Law. The plot of the story was Artaban's search for the star of Bethlehem. Everyone present was impressed, not only by the acting but by the scenery and costumes as well. It was one of the best plays of the year. The principal characters were: Everett Goldsmith ------------ Artaban Lawrence McGrath ------------- Addus Elsworth Griffon ------------- Rhodospes Edward Wurfer ---------------- Abgarus Edward Sickler - -------------- Marsena Francis Patrick -------------- Tigranas Kenneth Simmons -------------- Centurion Ethel Bridgman ------------ ---Captive Maid Carrietta 0'Hara ------------- Lady of Bethlehem Rev. Meredith Dallman -------- Reader Wm CDIHHUU1 ncwwuw The 'Last of the Lowries' by Paul Green, was Franklin's contribution to the Susquenango League one-act play contest held in South New Berlin, March 1, 1957. It won second place. The setting is in the woods of South Carolina, ln a little Indian hut. The characters are half-breed Indians. The rest, the father and three boys, were all killed by the sheriff and his men for being outlaws and murderers. The last boy is killed during the play, and the mother is at last defeated, but she clings to her faith in God. The play has been put on twice since the contest, once on May 19, at the Abraham Kellog High School, and once in D. L. I. on May 22. Cumba - the old mother Honora Wilson Jane - the sister Carolyn Peake Mayne - the wife of one of Helen Warren the dead boys Henry Berry - the one surviving boy Edward Sienicki This play was directed by Mrs. Donald Law and was considered a fine piece of dramatic work by all who saw it. WTTHHE HKHNGYE ENCEHHBWQQ The one-act play, 'The K1ng's Eng1ishF, was given the evening of May 22 in the school auditorium, following the play, The Last of the Lowriesn. This play is a h morous sketch in dialect. The action concerns the trials of Ripley O'Rannigan in finding a husband for his daughter, Loola. The only requisite is the perfect use of the King's English. The entire cast indicated that Mrs. Law, as director, had discovered dramatic talent among the boys of the school.

Seventy-five E. C.'s and invited guests were served in the Masonic Hall by the Eastern Stars. Brother Ben Warner acted as toastmaster, and the speakers were Brothers Harold Hyzer, Charles Belden, and Cecil S. Fowlston. After this, dancing was enjoyed to music fur- nished by Olie Nelsonfs orchestra. At two o'c1ock the party broke up, and everyone went home satisfied that this, the ninety-second annual banquet of the Fraternity,was a success. Aside from the banquet, the E. C.'s have been rather quiet although they have increased their membership from seven to eleven. Members are all looking forward to the picnic which comes on the Friday of Regents' week. They have every reason to believe that it will be as successful as the picnic last year which was held at Bnna Jettick Park. nvruuzm at what www The monthly publication known as the Purple and Gold Review has despite many difficulties come out this year containing more and better material. The weakest division in previous years was the literary content. This year, many more students have contributed poems, short stories, and essays. Anything which appeared in the department is the student's own work. Last year, the advertisements were rated highly,and it has been the sincere aim to keep advertisers pleased. The advertising manager tried hard to make this department clever, original, and attractive. Many social functions have made an interesting and complete social page. The nSchool House Catu was asked to furnish idle chatter about personal items gleaned from school life. His column was merely started to add a little informality to the school publication. It is realized that the humor page is in need of improve- ment. The jokes are not original, but more and more pupils are learning to keep their ears open for humorous, dry remarks made by teachers and students. Because of the excellent athletic teams of this year, the editors have Teen able to be proud of the sports page. They have intended to give short, concise summaries of each game. Sincerely, the staff has tried to make a full and interesting school publication. If they have failed, they are extremely sorry, if they have succeeded, extremely happy.

MUTILUHCI dl MUJIDILNTY CUDUJNGQHIU The Athletic Council this year has not held an elect- ion of officers. This is due to the fact that the athletic program has gone much more smoothly than usual this year, thereby creating few difficulties to be straightened out. The reaction of students toward athletics and school spirit indicate that the aims of the Council in promoting interest and sports- manship are being attained. The Student Council was newly organized this year and has not gathered momentum as yet. The object of this club is to bring the ideas and opinions of the faculty and the students closer together. Members are the president and one elected representative from each of the Junior and Senior High School classes. This year the President of the Council was Eva Charles: Vice President, Francis Sch ittg Secretary, Charles Underwood. The organization has adopted a constitution. BASE I BALI.

The squad lost only four regular players. They were Millard Secord, the regular p1tcher,Kenneth Simmons, Donald McKown, and Richard Taylor. Coach Cook looks to his battery of three pitchers, Edward Sienicki, Lynn Feltman, and Lavern Schreher with Barnes as the main back stop, with the support of fielders and basemen to bring his team through the season undefeated.

The squad started out with twenty-six girls, but some dropped out. There was no regular first team as all the girls getting suits had equal abilities with a very few exceptions. At the start chances looked pretty slim for a winning season, as several players had been lost through graduation The only two left from last year s first team were Frances Geertgens and Ethel Bridgman. The others who were given suits were: Frances McNutt, Eva Charles, Dorothy Charles, Margaret Boggs, Nettie Boggs, June Peake, Carolyn Peake, Frances Robinson, Eldora Slawson, and Mary Bennett. In the league this year Franklin played the same schools as last year: Unadilla, New Berlin, and South New Berlin 0 As Ethel Bridgman and Frances Geertgens were the only two letter girls from last year, it was decided that they would act as co-captains, alternating their turns. They were both capable and willing captains. The players chosen from the team for this year's All- Star game were Frances Geertgens, Ethel Bridgman,and Eva Charles. Although this valley lost, the girls played on excellent game.

The 1956-57 boys' basketball season was the most successful in the history of D. L. I. The boys went through the season of 15 games without a single defeat, and one tie, scoring 599 points while their opponents scored 191 points. In all the games the boys showed unusual skill and as the totals of some games will show, they completely outclassed their opponents. Alumni game, the boys won 58 to 17, and was a good one, though some of the 'old were tired out when the game ended. In game with Sidney the score was 41 to 18 In the the game boys' the first and. Franklin certainly 'barried home the bacon'l Another good game was the Milford game with a close score of 25 to 21. The Bainbridge game was a tie, 21 to 21, and the sides were even in skill and size.

But several boys will be missing when the team again gathers to defeat all opponents. FDDTBALL The 1936 football season of D. L. I. was the most successful one in many years. Winning seven games, tying one, losing none, D. L. I. scored ninety-six points and allowed her opponents to make only thirteen. The team was fast and fairly heavy, averaging 156 pounds per player. Each man was for the team and thought not of personal praise, making a team that clickedu and worked well together. The season opened with a trip "" to Sherburne, to play a team that M had a great reputation. As Franklin had not played Sherburne VM ph. in several years, little was known of the opposing team. To get a H A season off for a good start, D.L. Hg I. came home on the long end of 12- ,M MM O. ' Deposit visited Franklin the following week and went home defeated 19-O. Keeping up the good work, the team came home from Afton, victors of a score of 44-O. The Afton team put up a good, clean fight, despite the score's implication. The 1937 prospects had a chance to display their abilities in this game, and showed up well o Meeting Greene on our home gridiron, the team played a hard fought game. Both teams were evenly matched. The only score of the game was when D. L. I. rallied to a quick attack. One of the most exciting games of the season ended 6-O. D. L. I. traveled to Walton to meet an undefeated eleven. Because of the equality of the teams, neither was able to score. The following week Franklin visited Oxford's team, to fight for the championship of the league. D. L. I. met its first and only defeat at Oxford's hands, 7-O. However, it was discovered that Oxford had used an ineligible player and was forced to forfeit its games. The last game of the season was with Bainbridge at Franklin. Its evenly matched teams and spectacular plays made it a game ever to be remembered in the minds of the players and spectators. Both teams fought until the final whistle blew. D. L. I. kept clean her record by working out of a tight jam with a score of 14-12. The all-star game at Greene found Oxford again meeting Franklin. The quarter ended in a scoreless tie, but, because of the scoring of the other teams, the Susquehanna valley won. The 1937 team will be lighter and inexperienced, yet promises to be faster. The boys saw a little service this year which will prove valuable, possibly enabling D. L. I. to come through on top again. TRAC The track team to represent the school in the League sectlonals this spring was picked from the winners of the events in interclass track. One person could enter only two sports. The sectionals were held in Franklin. The schools represented wereg South New Berlin, New Berlin, Unadilla and Franklin. The winners then went to Afton where the All Star Meet was held. The events entered were: Boys 100 yard dash GirIh 50 yard dash Boy's high jump Boy's 200 yard dash Girfs 100 yard dash Girls basketball throw Boy's shot put Girfs baseball throw Boy's 400 yard.relay Girfb 200 yard relay Boy's broad jump HNHEHZQHABE EIVGDXQTYE The interclass sports participated in this year were soccer, kickball, volley ball, basketball, foul shooting, track and softball.

Plans are being made for next year which will interest even more student if possible, in prize speaking. An active interest in participation in plays has be 5: Bn encouraged among all of the classes in high school. Younger students are included in the casts so that in a few year greater plays may be undertaken and students, experience in acting, may make them greater successes. The.Admlnistrat1on has encouraged students to choos their vocations intelligently. Students are aided in se possible occupations, looking into many phases of the wo S d e lecting rk, and attempts have been made to create a desire for self-analysis. This phase of the work of the school is important. Plans have been made to join an association, formed many public schools of New York state, to further visual by education. This activity is sponsored by the Phi Delta Kappa, fraternity. The purpose is to enable member schools to obtain more and better sound and silent films for classroom and use. The school is using approximately 200 slides blwee school kly frdm the State Visual Education Division of the State Education Department and will continue the program next year.

And now at the close of another year an even better administration is anticipated. ciation year. ally no be the the produced years MNT The Art Department in Franklin Central School is under the supervision of Mr. F. Gerald Taggart. The aims of the Junior High School classes, which are compulsory, are many. Chief among them are: l. The appreciation of beauty as expressed in fine, industrial, and household arts. This covers all the phases of art, both in the home and in the commercial and industrial fields. Art appreciation makes the student capable of enjoying the best in all things which will give him a fuller, more complete life. 2. Discovery of those pupils who show talent and perseverance and to offer them special opportunities for the development of their skill and creative power. 5. A knowledge and understanding of the fundamental laws governing the creation of fine and beautiful things. Many courses are needed to carry out these objectives. Included in these are pencil, pen and ink, crayon, spatter work, oil painting, etching, tempera, poster work, soap carving, block printing, and charcoal work. From this variety the student is sure to find at least one which arouses his interest. When he does find one, he is eager to go deeper into the subject and to continue practicing. In the Senior but are voluntary, range of courses. com ercial design, of these require a during the term. During any of High School the art courses are not compulsory, the student choosing his subject from a wide These include pencil rendering, poster work, mechanical and architectural drawing. Each certain number of plates to be completed these courses the student is left, as far as possible, to work out his own designs and drawings. The teacher is a guide to the students rather than an assistant who does actual work for him. Only occasionally does the instructor work on the students' drawings. The drawing and its idea must originate within the student . It must be felt by the student. The deeper, more intense the feeling, the better the drawing. All drawing must be voluntary. Physical force cannot bring about the creation of ideas. For this reason a budding artist should be surrounded by numerous examples of good drawings and probable ideas for drawings. These should be criticized for good and bad points by the teacher. Constant reference pup1l's mind. to them soon makes an impression on the Time is an important element in art work. Haste and impatience have been the ruin of many a young artist. The principles and fundamentals must be mastered first, regardless of how tedious they may seem. As soon as these are thoroughly mastered,the pupil may hurry on as rapidly as he wishes. Art courses in High Schools are being looked upon more and more favorably everywhere. The day may come when it will be a necessary subject in the high school curriculum. CICIDMMEUQCI HM. The subjects taught in the Commercial Department at the present time are those which must be taken by a student who desires to earn a commercial diploma. They are: Bookkeeping I, Bookkeeping II, Business Law, Economics, Introduction to Business, Typewriting, Shorthand II,and Business Arithmetic. These subjects give the student a foundation with which he may enter the modern business world. The Commercial Depart- ment does not claim to nturn out' finished bookkeepers and stenographers, but to give practical and diversified knowledge of the common occurrences and terms of business with special emphasis on vocational subjects. It was planned to drop Shorthand from the curriculumg however, because of the demand among the students for this subject,it has been reconsidered. If present tentative plans are put into effect,Shorthand will continue to be a part of the commercial course. Com ercial subjects, particularly typewriting, are helps in school. It is possible for the students to publish a school paper which is typed and then mimeographed. Typing forms the basis of this paper because it would be too expensive to have one printed and almost impossible to publish a paper by using hand cut stencils. Typewriting students are usually in demand by school paper editors, not to mention teachers at test time. Most educators, business,and professional men agree that typewriting is an asset to all persons in whatever field they plan to work. It is useful to the college student, doctor, lawyer, engineer, salesman, teacher and others, who while they do not earn their living by doing stenography or typing, find it a most economical, efficient, and convenient help in their chosen work. It is one of the subjects recommemd ed for everyone in high school, regardless of what course he is taking. Bookkeeping is a useful subject for the future farmer or housewife. This subject gives a working knowledge of budgets and methods for keeping books to show profits or losses, assets and liabilitiesg on the chicken farm, dairy herd, fruit farm, 'gas station,' grocery store, tea room, and others. A school bank is operated successfully by members of the Bookkeeping II class under the supervision of Miss Madeline Pickenpack. This serves the twofold purpose of providing a convenient place for the deposit of funds from various school organizations and individual students,and giving them at the same time banking experience. All of the commercial subjects are taught by Miss Pickenpack with the exception of Introduction to Business and Business Arith etic. These subjects are taught by Miss Kemp and Mr. Haughey because the commercial teacher has all periods filled. IENQE1 MEET English instruction includes work in composition, literature, and speech. Under the division of composition there is a great variety of work. Original short stories and poems are something new this year in this field. The students have enjoyed writing because it was their first real chance to let their imaginations run wild! The results were entertaining and worth while. Essays, editorials, and newspaper articles have also been written. Closely connected with the study of writing and speaking are the units on vocabulary building, library lessons, and practice in parliamentary procedure. The seniors have a right to feel proud of themselves, for they had the highest scores of any of the classes on Inglis Vocabulary Tests, their average score reaching the norm. In oral work there have been speeches for special occasions, speeches of introduction, and personal interviews used in applying for a position. This division is probably the one most dreaded by high school English students. However, nNobody is learning to gesture or declaim, but rather to talk naturally and usefully.' Not cratory, but the ability to adapt students to every speech situation in life, is the aim of all oral work. The study of literature consists of the reading and discussion of novels, short stories, essays, plays, and poetry. Students have devoted class periods to this work, as well as time outside the classroom. Many supplementary books from the school library are read following the study of definite literary types. This department is now trying to make English more useful and appealing to students. Probably in future years students will find English even more practical. Less emphasis is being placed on the study of grammar and more on the formation of habits of correct usage. The greatest incentive to improve his language habits comes when the pupil realizes that he will be able to express himself more clearly and more acceptably to others. This year pupils have been able to measure their own progress through individual charts showing the frequency of composition errors in usage. Drill for the elimination of common errors has resulted in a gradual decrease shown on the charts. English I pupils made an interesting survey of common errors in speech heard in the school corridors as well as in the classrooms. The entire high school course in English is based on the normal speech, reading, and writing activities of young people. U ZAIULQHNU AQ HDZAYQE DWQDHZHS HEALTH The school nurse is ready to start another busy day at eight-thirty when the buses are beginning to arrive. Sally's cut knee is given first aid. Jimmy returning to school following a co m nicable disease, is sent to the school doctor for examination. Mary's second degree burn on her thigh is covered with a dressing and a note sent with her to the school physician. Sally Jane leaves a note on the nurse's desk to call and see John who is ill. Five students are inspected and given permission to return to their classes following absences from school because of illness. Hrs. Brown calls to see the nurse regarding Ruth's health. Ann and Peter who were examined, X-rayed, and given a tuberculin test at the chest clinic two days ago have their arms inspected for reaction to the tuberculin test. After a final check-up by the school doctor, they go away happy to learn it is negative. Judith, eyes glistening with tears, is treated for a toothf ache and at the same time is encouraged to visit the dentist. Robert has an inflamed throat and a temperature. Arrangements are made for him to go home, with advice that he see his family doctor. The nurse will call to orrov. The nurse pauses for a minute to arrange her work and to read Betty Jane's note. Betty Jane is sent for, and the contents of the note discussed. Arrangements are made for the school hot lunch for Betty Jane and her brothers. Pupils in the first and second grades are inspected. Praise is given for their neat, clean appearance. A short talk on the importan of bringing a clean handkerchief daily is given to the first grade, while one on the best foods for good teeth and the importance of daily care is given in the second. In the afternoon Sandra, who has fallen 111 at school, is taken home where her condition is discussed with her mother. A deep snow drift prevents getting to Arthur's home. On the way back the nurse stops to see Joh at the request of his mother who telephoned earlier in the day. Back to town with the clank, clank of auto chains, and a second effort is made to reach Arthur's home from another direction. Off the main road for a couple of miles in the tracks of a previous car, the nurse's car comes to a stop in another snow drift. After walking more than half a mile against a brisk wind through the fields, the nurse reaches Arthur's home. His visit to the eye specialist, and the doctor's orders, are explained. The walk back to the car is down grade and easier going. The car see-saws back and forth for some time, then darts out into the ruts of the road once more and goes merrily homeward in the dusk of a w1nter's afternoon. GQ HTCIDMIQEMMKUNCEU One outstanding activity of the Homemaking Department is the hot lunch project. The department serves nearly 100 pupils every day. On Wednesday a full lunch is served to about 45 students and 'teachers at a cost of 18d per plate. The planning of these dishes is given careful consideration. Thqy must be low in cost and at the same time, interesting and nutritious. Foods served include milk, fruits, fruit juices, cooked and raw vegetables, and also puddings and custards. Next year it is hoped that the school may have a cafeteria. This would necessitate the equipping of the large study-hall for a combined study-hall and cafeteria. There has been 1 gradual increase in the number of girls taking homemaking in high-school. This year 3575 of them are studying homemaking, but this number should be increased still more. Out of the past senior classes at least sox of the girls are now in homes of their own, or are doing house-work for someone else. These results show that more girls should take up homemaking while they are in highpschool. This year, five girls taking homemaking, attended Farm and Home Week at Cornell, where they received much inspiration for their work. Ho emaking girls often visit homes in the community to study furnishings and equipment. In this way the girls become more interested, and the actual home conditions make their work seem more of a reality. Families visited also become more aware of the department and realize the extension of the activities. The seventh and eighth grades are the beginners, but they are not inactive. They begin to sew and cook and try hard to measure up to the progress of the older girls. This year the eighth grade girls will make their own graduation dresses. The parents should be as proud of this, as the pupils themselves. ILANQEJ UJACUJM The aims in the study of Latin are as follows: 1. To acquaint the student with Roman civilization from which many of our political and legal ideas have been inherited 2. To stimulate intellectual growth by opportunities to develop logical thinking. 3. To teach the student to take as his own, part of the experience of nearly a thousand years of history, science, literature, politics, and engineering. 4. To make lives richer through understanding the mean- ing of many Latin words, phrases, and quotations of frequent occurrence in English. 5s To teach the derivation of Latin words in English, enabling one both to understand meanings of many previously unfamiliar words and to appreciate the real meaning of many familiar words. The Department is using in French this year, for the first time, the Cleveland Plan, thereby French is the medium of instruction. The students learn French by speaking the language during the entire class period. Their prdgress is slower but their grasp of the content of the lessons studied is far more comprehensive under this plan. IUHEHZMQY Library service has increased in the past six years for the following reasons: 1. Increased facilities offered students 2. Increased correlation of subject matter by teachers. 5. Expansion of recreational reading 4. Use of the reference collection by people not connected with the school 5. Teaching of library usage through special instruction Grade libraries are housed at present in separate rooms and have grown proportionately in service and volume. These libraries include their own periodicals, while the main reference .collection is available to grade pupils and teachers. The number of volumes in the high school library when it was transferred to the new building in 1951 was 6013 the number of volumes at present is 1696. Each year 550 additional books from the State Traveling Library are available to the school. The library is a member of the Junior Literary Guild of America for older boys and girls which selects the out- standing books of the month for young people. A complete library catalog of author, subject, and title cards increases the usefulness of the book collection. The growth of the library necessitated additional shelving in 1956. The collection of reference books ranges from Famous First Facts to L1 incott's Gazeteer, a film catalog Index, and Book seI5Et on ographfes.

There are one-hundred and three students enrolled in the high school and eighth grade math. Therefore, more than 6055 of the Junior and Senior High School is taking subjects in this department. There are seven different classes of math taught each day. There are: Intermediate Algebra, Advanced Algebra, Com- mercial Arithmetic, Plane Geometry, EHghthGrade Math, and Seventh Grade Math. The aims this year have been to give the pupil as much practical math as possible. By that is meant the type that will aid him most in an actual life situation and in other high school subjects, such as the sciences. However, at the same time it must prepare the students for their Regents'. Mathematics is not required after theeighthgrade, except in the cases where a college entrance diploma is desired. Thus, the enrollment tends to fall off in the Senior High classes. Thisdecreasein enrollment has been noticed by the State Department in the last few years and it is now believed that they may offer an optional course on the ninth grade level. This new course will not be a Regents' subject. It is not certain whether this course will be offered next year. It depends largely on the results of the math Regents and the demand for this subject. The Department at this time takes the opportunity to introduce the student body to this new plan for consideration, because it is felt that math is too important to be dropped after the eighth grade, especially since it plays an important part in the modern world along scientific and technical lines. From the School's records for this year, there is every indication that the Mathematics Department will have a very successful year. MUJEHQ The Music Department in the Franklin Central School is under the supervision of Miss Kinslol. Her aim is to develop appreciation and enjoyment of music, and skill in performance. lusic is taught daily in the first six grades and twice a week in the Junior High School. Rudiments of Music and Harmony I are the only courses offered to the Senior High School. The school orchestra has been in existence for nearly tio years. It has at present twenty-five members. It plays for school assemblies and social functions. It is now accredited by the State Department of Music, and the students receive Regents'credit for their work in the organization. The Girls' Glee Club is also in its second year of existence and has appeared in public several times during the past year. This club now has an enrollment of more than forty me bers. Both the school orchestra and Girls' Glee Club took part in the Music Festival of the Susquenango League held at Sidney in April of this year. Instrumental instruction on the various instruments of the orchestra is offered to pupils in the grades and in high school. Beginning pupils are graded in classes of varying sizes and continue until they are able to enter the orchestra. Arrangements can be made through the Music Department for the rental of instruments at a small cost. IPHWEDHCEZML IEHDUJCEMFHKDN Ph sical Education includes such activities as running, dancing, games, athletics, safety, and personal and public health, as they appeal to students' interest and are supervised for his physical well-being or correction and prevention of bodily deficiency. Physical education and athletics help maintain and pro ote good health and the social qualities of good sportsmanship. They also provide opportunities for qualities of leadership, courage, loyalty, and self sacrifice. They create interest in school and college life. They appeal to the students' deeper instincts and emotions, development of personal traits which affect one's associates and create in youth, intelligent and healthful interest in physical activity which tend to carry through to adult life for a better use of leisure time vhich is becoming more an more a problem of the nation. All pupils attending the public schools are to take this course,1n so far as they are capable and physically fit. The kindergarten is the only exception to this rule. Physical Education and Athletics are a part of education and lifeg therefore, they should be givenimportance, but they should not overshadow the other worthfvhile things of life. Physical Education is a direction of motor activity as a means of developing the mind, character, control,and the body EDCEHIENCUE The Science Department starts with the seventh grade science division. These students have two recitations a week, in which they become slightly acquainted with science, the most important field in the life of mankind. The next advancement is in the eighth grade science. These students have three recitations per week, in which they make more firm their basic knowledge of science. General Science is taught five times a week, and takes all of the more important fields of science into consideration to some extent. This subject is required by the state. This year another science subject has been added to our curriculum. General Biology is being taught for the first time this year. General Biology is built around the ground- work of Elementary Biology or General Science. Man is made the center of study, both as an individual and as a species. Perhaps nothing holds as great interest for boys and girls as the study of the cultural advancement of man. The story of prehistoric man, of the early records of primitive man, and of man's progress through historical times is a feature of the work in the new course in General Biology. That man is a unit in the great world of nature, that he has many interrelations with the plant and animal world of nature, that he has merely made a beginning in his control of his world are fascinating research problems touched upon in this course. General Biology is taught for five periods a week of forty minutes each, plus a forty minute laboratory period. This year Physics is being taught as an advanced science. Next year the advanced science will be Chemistry. The Physics class is planning to take an educational trip through some large manufacturing plant. They will probably visit the General Electric plant in Schenectady. There has been some new apparatus added to the laboratory this year. In adding Biology to the science curriculum, there was a need for extra equip ent, some of which was purchased by the school. There has also been a small amount of equipment purchased for use in the other science subjects. The enrollment of the science department has increased this year to one h ndred and twenty students. ECDKKHZML EHHJUDHIEE Social Studies includes Ancient and Medieval History, Modern European History, American History, Civics, Citizenship and Economics. Citizenship is a study of the life plan of the economic citizen and Civics is the study of our government and s work. Miss Gregg, the instructor, has tried to carry out the following alms in her history classes: I. Create more interest in the field of government. II. Make better citizens. III. Increase interest in current affairs. IV. Create a broader judgment on the part of the pupil. V. Educate the student to form his own opinions so that he will not be biased by politics, localities, and races The D. L. I. still functioning. There have been many interesting debates on the present day problems, some of which were the Supreme Court, labor disputes, and capital punish ent for kidnappers. Every Monday, in the regular History C period, topics of the day are discussed. Each week the President of the History Forum appoints a chairman or leader for the following week. The chairman has to plan the meeting and give out topics for each individuals report at the next meeting. Every two weeks the History B Class has current topics to discuss. These meetings are held on Friday. This year has been a particularly good year to study history because events of importance have been present in each day's news: Presidential campaign and electiong social securityg floods in the Mid-West and reliefg labor troubles and 'sit down strikes'5 neutrality and Supreme Court issues. Past history seems to tie up with these events so closely that it can no longer be referred to as, 'past hi8tOI'ye' Me bers of the History A classes are experimenting in soap carvings and hope to have a model of a medieval manor soon This may seem chi1dish,but it is the best way to learn the how and wh of the medieval structure. Economics is the study of business activity tram the standpoint of social welfare. It tells why prices rise and fall, and why we are living in an industrial rather than an agriculturalage. Economics is one subject every one should kn0'e VCD CIQMHKDNZMLUMDHZHQ IUUUU HZIE The Agricultural Department of the school differs somewhat frdm the regular academic departments. Each boy, in addition to his theoretical studies in the classroom, is required to engage in supplemental work of a more practical nature, such as supervised farm practlce, farm shop, and extra-curricular activities. In the classroom the boys study animal husbandry, field crops, soil fertility, marketing, agricultural economics, farm accounting, and farm management. As text books soon become out of date, they are supplemented by the regular study of up-to-date articles published in ten dif- ferent farm papers and magazines. In addition to these farm magazines,there is a continuous supply of new bulletins published by the New York State College of Agriculture which helps to keep pupils posted on more recent developments in the growing science of agriculture. The supervised farm practice work is carried boy at his home farm under the supervision of Mr. the past year, members have raised 1165 chickens, 10 pigs, 8 acres of potatoes, to build or repair l2 farm buildings, repaired l5 on by each Lattin. During 18 dairy calves trees, helped farm machines, planted 5000 forest kept dairy herd improvement records on 540 head of dairy cows, and several other projects of a less important nature. Some of the objectives of supervised farm practice are: To give each boy an opportunity to have something of his own and encourage him actually .L. to get a scart in farming. 2. home farm. To put scientific facts and,modern up-to-date principles and approved practices, as 3. To adapt the work to the needs of the boy and his studied in the classroom, into actual farm practice. 4. To give the boy a sense of responsibility and to develop managerial and operative abilities. 5. solve problems. 6. To enable the boy to plan his work, analyze, and To demonstrate to the com unity the value of modern and scientific methods of production, thus spreading agricultural education throughout the cdm unity. The recreational and educational activities of the local F.F.A. include a trip to the state Fair where the best cattle and poultry judges from the school compete with those from more than 170 of the 250 chapters in New York State.
